At the conference between the delegates from

that he had KciinJ a number of valuable 6ig

whieh will be taken baek to Sranlon and em
bodied In a bill to be prepared at unco by
James II. Torrey, who U well known as an eu.
thoilty on modern Ideas cf municipal eiiganira
tion, Mr. Torrey will piobably bring the bill
lo 1'itli.buig to proi-cnt it to the chamber of
louimcrec, and then, it Is hoped, the uuilid
mpport of PitUburg, Allegheny and beranton
delegations may bo put behind it to help it
through the legislature.
As the main feature of the new bill there will
be muih greater power and io.ponsihilty sctcd
in the in j j or and 1cm power in the coumlla,
Mr. Atliertnn (.ays.
The reason this is urged just now, he, Is
that Scranton would now be a illy in nianj re

In the prearatlon of the pieent lavvi. (oi eitie.
of this (Um it was taken for granted that an
old chaiter goveined a largo part of the detail
of urganlutluu, as In the case of Pittsburg, and
the law failed to piovlde for them. In Scranton
theie Is no old duller of that kind to be opir
ntlve, and that ill.v'.s eutianie now into the
higher class would ueccoslt.itc a lot of legislation,
lids being w, the present lime U thought op
pmtuno to uigc the general change.
Mi vis. Hitchcock and Vtlieitun spent the ulghi
in this lit. They will rciutn to Vranton this
morning and cqiimiU with Mi. Turiev. It i
thought that the bill will be prepared within a
week or ten elajs.

Amendment to the Constitution Sug
gested by Judge It. W. Archbald
in nn Act He Has Drawn.
As a means of checking the attacks,
nut do so often fur mere put poses of
delay, on nets of tho general assembly,
Piesldeiit Judge Archbald proposes
au amendment to the couhlltutlon
maklnr; all laws Immune from tho al
legations of defective title or special
leglliition, after I hey have been In
existence ton years.
Tho elraft of the bill incorporating
the nineiulincnt reads as follows:
l'ioio-lng an Amendment to the Constitution.
He it resolved, etc., that the following be pio
posod as an niuiiiihiiint to the constitution, to
be designates! .13 the MX artlilc thereof, viz.:
Vo iv t of the general assembly, after ten
Jimis Hum the elate of its passage, slnll be
held unconstitutional by reason ef any defect or
inu()li itm v in tho title, or 011 the ground that
it Is a local or special liw relating to any of the
siihieits piohlbllrd by the constitution, etcept
ism li ait, within lint period, shall have been so
adjudged by the luurls of this state or ot the
I lilted States, having jurisdiction; and the gen
eral noiembly by appropiiate legislation shall
piovlde for the .i-ccitalnmi nt ami promulfntion
ot Midi dii'Moii".
Tlio Mil will be offered al the com
ing session of tho legislature. To
b"coiuo operative the amendment must
have boon approved by two consecu
tive iihseutbllos.
The latter i-Iiium? of tlio act, lefer
ring to tho reporting ot locul and
United Stutes court derisions, Is for
tlio purpose ol providing a means
whereby It can bo icadlly known
whether or not any net has been de
clared unconstitutional by any court
'luring 'the vten years following its
The present lack of any such pro
vision as the amendment contemplates
makes It possible for n lawyer to -assail
any act that happens te come up,
and as lawers desiring to elelay or tie
up litigation are open to the tempta
tion of making this assault, It often
happens that the Supremo court Is
burdenc-el with a lot of inquiry upon
some technical question that was
raised solely for the purpose of ele
luv. The pioposed amendment would 10
sult in interested parties keeping a
closer watch on legislation and hav
ing It tested, once for all, during tlio
early years of Its opeiatlon. Instead
of allowing it to do set vice for thirty
or forty years and then attacking It It happens to bo objectionable

The Colliery Resumed Operations
Yesterday Morning.
The strike nt tho Mt. Pleasant col

company, has been settled and the
men resumed work yesterday morning.
The men went out about a week ago
because, they alleged, that a boy em
ployed at the mine had not been paid
what had been promised him.

It Is understood that .Judge Arch

Instructions as to their powers In

leged crookedness among aldermen
nnd Justices of the peace, In collect

When the Jury retires. District At

of Indictment founded on Information
furnished by County Solicitor Herbert
L. Tnylor, and secured by him through
tho activities of ex-County Detective
Thomas 1. neynolds, as told ot at
length In yesterday's Tribune.
There Is Just a possibility that the
thing will go over for another term,
as tho commissioners believe tho de
tective has not rounded up nil tho of
I'endeis, anil that ho should be given
more time, that he may miiko the Job
complete. The chances are. though,
thut the district attorney will proceed
with such cases as aro ready and deal
with the others as they nre brought
The county commissioners say (they
do not want to have the affair imade
subject to criticism by any seeming
partiality. They gave orders to tho

term of court of selling liquor without
a license, yesterday ptesented himself
lor sentence nnd wns fined $300 and

by Judge Archbald.
I.ukau hail a bottler's license but
sold at tetall over a bar. The Men's
union charged him with selling with
out license nnd ho was convicted of
this charge. Ills attorney, Joseph
O'lhien, contended tho Lukan could
not bo sentonceil for selling without a
license, as he had n license, and (that
the only penalty that could be im
posed up on him was that prescribed
for violating the provisions of his liot
tler'K license, which Is much milder
that that imposed for selling without
a Hcensip.
Judge Aichbtilel held In an opinion
rendeied last Saturday, that Lukan
was charged with and convicted of
selling without a license nnd that It
remained for the court to sentence
him accordingly.
Tho case will not bo appealed.
