HOPE OP DELAY
GOVERNOR STONE SAYS HE CAN
NOT WITHOLD CERTIFICATE.
In a Letlor to Congressman Connell
Which Is Referred to Select
Councilman Chittenden, His Ex
cellency Says the Law Is Manda
tary Upon Him to Make tho Certi
fication and to Disobey It Would
Be a Violation of a Plain Duty
Burns Has Another Way.
Those ot the opponents of Scranton's
'transition to the second class, who
hoped to avoid the transit by having
the governor delay 'the certification ot
the census figures till legislation could
be passed keeping Scranton In the third
class, nre doomed to disappointment.
Governor Stone says he cannot with
hold the certificate.
Some days ago, Select Councilman C.
E. Chittenden, who Is one of the most
vigorous of tho opponents of tho tran
sit, wrote lo Congressman Connell, re
questing him to use his Influence with
Governor Stone to have the certificate
delayed. Congressman Connell for
wurded Mr. Chittenden's letter to Gov
ernor Stone, and this Is what was re
ceived In reply:
Commonwealth ot Penn.ylvanlj,

Dear Sir: Your letter of the 1.1th Inst., en

tenden in called to the act of awcmbly. ap
proved Slay 8, ISM, pane 133, dividing cities of
the state into three, cla.ve.4. Under this net
of assembly it becomes the duly of the gov
ernor to ceitlfy to any city that luw changed
its classification under the ccnsiH. I do not
tee how I could withhold such certificate, un
der tho plain piovlsions of this law, nor do I
fee how lho city of Scranton can fall or prevent
liecoinlne; a city of lue second claw, but tliii
h for thjfly of Scranton to determine, not
tor me. aM6
1 will be ei.v fjlad lo oblige jou or Mr.
Chittenden, and especially to do what the peo
plo of Seianton desire, provided I can do so
without violating the plain legal duly im
posed upon me.
1 may say that the ail ot assembly was con
slrued by the supreme court at the time Alle
cheny passed from a tliiul lo a second claw
city, and the provisions of the act upheld. 1

Please return after you are through with it,

IS MUCH CAST DOWN.
Mr. Chittenden, as may be believed,
is very much cast down over tho re
ceipt of this pronunclamento of the
governor. "This practically settles the
matter," .said he yesterday to a. Trib
une reporter. "Our city has had only
Indifferent success in handling a rea
sonably good charter. It. will now be
Interesting to watch the efforts to work
what may bi called a criminal con
spiracy. This charter can only be
worked by a boss, and as a large per
centage of the Republican vote is un
alterably opposed to bosses and boss
Ism, it is a safe prediction that the
city will soon pass Into permanent
It would seem that all hope of pre
venting the transition If, indeed, it is
the wish of Scranton to prevent it
is gone, but according to Attorney I.
II. Burns, there is still another way out
of the difficulty.
The law provides that the governor's
certificate shall be recorded, and la a
decision in 1S93, Justice Williams stated
that upon the recording of this certifi
cate the city, in that instant, passes
into the new class. It may be that
some of the new classification laws
have made this decision Inoperative,
but that question has never been test
ed, and If Scranton only wants a delay
In transition of a few months or so, it
can secure it by neglecting to record
Hie governor's certificate for that time.
Before any one could secure a man
damus from the Supreme or Superior
courts, to compel the city officials to
record tho certificate and bring about
the transition, the work of elinnging
the classification law could be com
pleted, HAS BEEN AMENDED.
There are some who contend that the
actual transition will not make impos
sible the passage of the legislation nec
essary to keep Scranton in the third
class. They polit to the fact that the
classification net has been frequently
amended unci that each amendment has
affected one or more cities. There Is
no reason, they contend, why the
amendments can not be made Just us
well after Scranton becomes second
class us when It Is third class.
Tho general opinion, however, Is that
the transition is inevitable and that
tho best course for Scranton is to be
gin actively to prepare for the change.
