LUZERNE IS HAVING BOTHER.
Census Put It Into Class by Itself tor
Which Theie Is No Salaiy Law.
l.ueine cuunty bus .succeeded in
working ti sunn' bother ovei the cen
sus lemiltK. According- to one of her
most pioiniiuiU attoine.v.s, Cii-tngu B.
Kulp, thPie is no .salaiy law for coun
ties of the population 01' Lansc-ine ami
tin1 enioluments of various of lis ofll
ieiH, in consequence, will be about
tloubleii by hnvliiK to fall buck on the
old fee system.
There .tie .sulary acts for 1 utilities
containing over SOO.OiKl inhabitants, for
counties having less than JOU.Oiil) ami
moi e than .iOO.uuo and Lounlie.s with
ie.ss than 2'.fl,00U ami moie than b'0,000,
but none tor the class between 2."0,00i)
ami 300,001), in which I.ussernp county
has been placed by the last census,
An net ol asssinbly passed Mnich SI,
ISIfi, and applying to I'ountles with
less than 300.000 and more than S.'.O.uOO
Inhabitants va.s lepealed by an act of
Muy 11, 1S91, and made to apply to
counties having less than ',00,000 and
more than 300,000 Inhabitant. No pro-
Islon was made lor taking caic of the
gap that the ic-classifylng occasioned
and hence Luzerne's bothi'i.
If an ofllcci' Is salaileil, the fees of
his oflice must be paid to the county
treasuior. It not salaried, he receives
ark fees, out of which he pays his
(ioiks, etc. Under the fee system the
fees of the dlstilct attorney and cleik
of the courts would be about double
the .sum' pinviiled by the salary act,
Tho fees pf the piothonotary would
about pay the salaries. It Is believed
tho law will hn lemedled at the next
session of the legislatuie.
RECEPTION AT THE CATHEDRAL
Nearly 100 Young Women Join he
Blessed Virgin's Sodality.
A most lmpiesslvo eeiemony took
place In St. Peter's calhedinl last night
when neatly one hundred young wo
men wcue received Into the moused
Virgin sodality by night llnv. lllsliop
Hoban. Tho chinch wnH thronged to
the very dooi.s, a huge number of
those piesent being members of the
Blessed Vltgln sodality and of tlm Holy
Namo society. I'lecedlng the lecop
tlon there was benediction of the most
blessed sacrament and an eloquent
sermon by How Father O'Donnell, of
Oreat nend, who spoko upon tho devo
tion of Catholics to tho lllessed Vligln.
An inspiring foatutu of tho services
was the rendering of several hymns,
among others "Holy Clod, We Praise
Thy Name" by the membcts of the
Holy Namo society,

badly mangled by tho car wheels that
amputation of each was found neces

to largely incense the city's leventies
but It is- piobable that the Ineiease will
hae a tcndeiiev to hugely reduce the

that tho unlicensed dealeis liao been

This would mean a lovenup from this

It Is at piesent. This Is exclusive of
the brow ei y licenses, which will add
enough to make it lair to say that in

Another souice of revenue, or, more

City Cleik Lavelle Believes It Is Not
Advl&able to Go Into That
Class at This Time.
nARTIN T. LAVE1.LI:,

IMlIm ot 'Hip Tilbwit
Sir: I am most lieaitlly in favor of
tho .suggestion mude to keep Scianton
In tlm thlid class by amending the
classification act to make the limit of
population for tlilid-clas.s cities 123,000
instead of 100,000, as at piesent.
I'm In tnvor of this plan because I
don't think It possible for Hctanton, for
ten yeais at least, to enter the same
class as tho wealthy cities of Allegheny
unci ritsbuig, especially the hitter,
These cities ate not only wealthy but
they aio old, Plttsbuig Inning been a
city and quite u large one when Scrnn
ton wah as yet known as Slocum Hol
low. The older a city, the moie permanent
Improvements It has got. Anybody will
admit that. Go to Pittsburg and Alle
gheny and you'll tlnd their stieots
neaily all seweied and paved. Heie In
Scianton wo'va only begun to sower
and pave, Wo haven't got a thlid of
the city's streets seweiecl yet.
I tell you that tho pxpenso of sewer
ing and paving thlb city in the mm ten
years Is going to bo a eiy hlrf item of
expense, far larger than many peophi
Imagine. Them is nobody who has made
a cuieful study of tho opeiatlon or the
second-class city law in Plttsbuig and
Allegheny who does not know that if
It was applied to fei anion It would
mean a ticniondous added expense
What would be tho lesult If wo did
enter tho second class We would either
have to give up our hew ei lug and pav
ing, and who Is them that believes we
should do this, or put tho taxoayera
under u burden of uuuecessailly heavy
taxes? Unnecessarily heavy because
there is no sensible teason why wo
should go Into the second class If we
can prevent it, and 1 think we can.
Them are theorists who contend that
we huvo been hampered too long by
being in a class with the smull cities of
the state, and that It has been impos-
Rlble to pass any legislation favorable
to tho latgc thlril-chies cities. I'd ilka
to be told when any nttempt was made
to put thiottgh nny tlili-d-class legisla
tion fnvmnlit' lo Pcinntoii or any of
tho ollirr lingo cltlrs. t don't know of
any such atteinpl,
I'm not coiitcndlhir that the piesent
tlilid-cliiRs city law Is nil that could be
deslipd for Hcuinton, but It's better
than the second-class city taw. Why
itipii't our local repiesenlatlvcs In the
leglplatiiro told to go down to Ha 11 Is
btiifftiiid hno (he taw amended so that
It will lit our needs? Tlmt's what
should be done, nnd the citizens of this
city should see that one of thorn Intio
duceH nn amendment which will keep
Scranton In the thlid class.
t don't agipo itt all with thoie who
dilate upon the wotiilciful lienelltn
which will nun iu to this elty If wo go
Into the second class, We would rank
with Plttsbuig, to be suie, but that's
nierelv an empty honor, nothing 111010.

sny that not ninny persons am nvvaio
of the fact, all people outside of the
Lackawanna station ale meant, tut In

Toboy's fame has long been established.
When he lionchtilnntly leiinitkod on
tho day befoio Thanksgiving that he
would spend the national holiday In

and when he cntomd his office he found
It thionged with heads of depaitments,
chief cieiks anil even otllco boys, with
eager, expectant looks on their faces
for the promised game. Dut alas! dis
appointment awaited them all, as
Thanksgiving proved a Waterloo. Bal
iiklava and (.lottysbuig combined, and
not a single blpid or quadtupi'd was
bagged by the spoilsman.
-Mr. Tobey managed, however, to as
suage the gilef of his venison-hungry
