The first casa on the list today Is ono
of the famed oleomargarine cases from
Philadelphia. It will bo submitted.
The appellant, John L. Nelll, was con
victed In the quarter sessions of Phila
delphia county of selling oleomargar
ine unlawfully. The conviction was at
the same time, but under three differ
ent Indictments. The law says that a
fine shall be Imposed for the tnst con
viction nnd Imprisonment tor the sec
ond and subseepient offenses. Nelll
was lined for his conviction under the
first Indictment and sentenced to thhly
days' Impilsonment under the second.
He alleges that he can only be fined,
taking the gmuud that It was practic
ally one conviction, und 'that the three
indictments were all the outgiowth of
the same transaction.
Exactly the same facts were uigued
at the last sitting In Philadelphia In
the Fink appeal, and for that reuson
the Nelll case will be submitted to
day. The trial ll.-t for the term which
opens today Is given below. During
this week appeals from the courts of

LITTLE TESTIMONY
OF IMPORTANCE
Yesterday's Hearing: in the Council
manic Cases Was Almost Barren
of Results Boland Heard.
Another lienrlnrr In the brlheiy eases
brought by the Municipal I.eaKUs
against Counelhncn K. J. Coleman,
Thomas O'lloyle, Udward Jumes, It.
II. Wllllama, T. r. .Melvln, John .Mo
Anelrew nnd I'. V. MeCann was hold
yesterday afternoon In tho olllce of Al
derman Fuller.
The only witness examined wns ex
Clty Treasurer ('. O. Uohind. Attor
ney .Inme- 11. Toney, who cross-examined
Mr. Uolanel, Intimated 11 great
many things In his questions, but
didn't Mteeeed In getting the wltnesH
to admit many of them.
Mi. Hnliind testified that he was one
of the original Incorporators of the
I.aeknuunna Telephone company In
connection with T. J. Foster, 1". J.
Itoblrisein, Oeorge Horn, Conrad
Selnoeder and others.
He had talked to Councilman Me
I'unn, who Inttoduecd the amendments
which killed the llrst otdlnanee, but
money -wnf not mentioned. He talked
with 10. .T. Malepieiy after the new fran
chise was Anally granted and Moloney
intimated that thoie was n considera
tion for which Coumilman Coyne
phoulel have stood by tho old company.
Maloney had icmarked that It hodeoht
a lot of money to find out the treach
ery of 1 lie rouiicllineii.
Maloney said nothing about coun-ellmi-n
being on the pd- roll of the
old company. The only councilman,
Mr. Boland said, who had talked to
him directly about money was II. T.
Fellows. He couldn't nunember that
anyone professing to represent coun
cllmen had asked for money.
He remembered having talked to
Wade Finn about Simon Thomas. Finn
said the olel comapny had offered to
give Thomas money to pay his hotel
license' tax, the witness sold, and Finn
suggested that If the new company
"loaned" Thomas that amount, ho
would tote fnr the now franchise. He
couldn't say positively whether or not

AWFUL EXPERIENCE
OF JOHN GUNS
For Ten Hours Ho Lay Unconscious
in tho Lackawanna Itiver Was
Frozen in a Terrible Manner.
Stunned and unable to move a mus
cle to hell) himself John Guns, of Staf
ford avenuu and Kim street, wns
found lying, almost totally Immerired
In the cold waters of the Lackawanna
liver, early yesterduy morning. For
ten hours Ouns had occupied this ex
tremely uncomfortable position, und If
he succeeds In pulling through with
his life he can thank only the skill
of scicMtce und bis lucky stars that
he Is still la the laud of the living.
Whllo going to his work at the south
mill Monday evening ut 7 o'clock, in
some unaccountable manner, Huns
dipped from the wall bkirtlng tho
Lackawanna river und fell fifteen feet
Into the Icy waters below.
Ho was rendered unconscious from
the fall, but fortunately the water nt
this point Is not very deep. The
gt eater part of his body was coveted
by tho water, but his head and snoul
ders were clear and tested upon the
bank.
In this posture other workmen of
the mill discovered him at fi o'clock
yehteiduy morning. He was taken to
tins mill and tho Moses Taylor hospital
ambulance summoned.
Chins was taken to that Institution,
where II was found that he was se
verely cut and bruised about tho head,
caused 110 doubt by his fall. Other
parts of the body are badly bruhed
and lacerated. That pottlon of his un
ntomy resting In tho water is of course
badly dozen. His condition Is quite
serious and he will be fortunate If
he mirvlves to tell of his terrible ex
perience.
fluiis cannot give any satisfactory
account of tho nlTalr. Hn dojs, not
know how he came to fall from tho
wall, but Is Inclined to believe that ho
was pushed by somo person unknown.

THOSE THREE
NEW SCHOOLS
SCHOOL BOARD POSTPONES AC
TION ON QUESTION.
Tho Building Committee Formally
Recomraonded Their Erection, but
Captain TVtay Moved for a Post
ponement Until After Reorganiza
tion Motion Seconded by Dr.
O'Mallev, Which Shows tho Way
tho Land Lion Vaccination Time
Limit-Extended.
The proposition to erect three new
school buildings In vniious parts of
the city received a temporary set hack
from tho boaid of control last night,
It being decided to poslpoile nctlon
until the first meeting In March, or
until after tho icorganlzatlon of the
boa id.
Tho mutter wns brought up by
Chairman Hoche, of the building com
mittee, who read the report of that
body recommending that the follow
ing new buildings bo erected during
the coming year, the money tu pay
tot' them to come fiom the appropria
tions for tho fiscal year 1901-100.!:
Sixth ward, twelve room building;
First ward, eight loom building; Sec
ond waiel, twelve room building.
Captain Mny Immediately moved
that nctlon be postponed until tho
Hint meeting night In March. Mr.
Gibbons arose to explain his views on
tho matter n.i a member of the build
ing committee. Ho said he opposed
tho election of nnv more buildings at
the meeting of the committee.
Ho believed that the threes buildings
would cost about $100,000 and that to
raise that amount it would bo neces
sary to Issue bomls, lie believed the
Sixth ward needed a building nnd
should have It. If the dlstrlcl'H finan
cial condition would allow. The Idea
of building a Htiueture In the Fhst
ward, h said, was 11 bail one, because
many citizens of the wind weie op
posed to the location of the site. The
Second ward needed a building badly
and If the piojeet to ciect the other
two buildings was going to be put
through, he'd fuvor Including that
ward. The motion to postpone was
adopted.
AX INDICATION'.
The fact that Captain May made the
motion and that Dr. O'Malley seconded
It can be taken as a very good Indica
tion that they're going to bo In this
year with tlie powers that be, Instead
of with the opposition, as they were
lust yeiu. It is generally understood
that Mr. Juyne will be re-elected
chairman, with a good many votes to
spare. The Idea of having the matter
postponed was so that the new or
ganization, which will llx the appro
priations, will be able to have Us say
as to how they hall be spout.
The building committee also recom
mended that electric lights bo In
stalled In schools .'e. 11 nnd 6, nnd
that twelve flag poles be purchased
at $u0 each. The tlrst lecommcndu
tlon was adopted, but the flag epolc
iiuestlon was referred back to tho
committee for further consideration,
when it was learned that only six
were actually needed at piesent.
AH the bills presented by thei build
ing committee weie approved, with
one notable exception. This was a bill
for $4 presented by Controller Howell
for carriage hire. Mr. Iloehe explain
ed that the carriage wns used by the
two appraisers engaged by the con
troller to Inspect the lots In the Sixth
ward, which he contended the school
boarel paid too much for.
"Well, that's pretty nervy," ejacu
lated Mr. Gibbons, "ir we've got the
legal right to pay that bill, we should
pay It, but I'have strong eloubts that
we have." The bill was not passed.
T1MK KXTUNDKD.
Fpon motion of Dr. O'Malley, the
board decided to extend the time limit
for tho vaccination of children from
January 15 to February 1. Mr. Jen
nings said that he and a number of
other members of the board were In
receipt of an anonymous letter, which
suggested that the vaccine virus being
used by some ot the local physicians
was not of the best.
He quoted a story he had heaid
about two children who told their par
ents that the physician who vaccin
ated t hem wanted to know If they
wanted the "cheap or the dear kind."
He asked the doctor If any of the virus
used In this city was of an Inferior
character.
The doctor leplied that the vaccine
matter used by the physicians of this
city was tho standard article, prepared
under proper aseptic conditions and
that there was no disparity In tho price
chat god to physicians. No bad result
could come from vaccination, he said,
if it weie propel ly done.
The teachers' committee rcommended
that Miss Mary O'Muley, of Green
Hldge, be appointed teacher In No. 26,
to fill the vncancy caused by tho icslg
nation of Miss Kllzabeth Williams, and
that Joseph Murphy be appointed to
fill the vacancy nt No. 7, caused by the
resignation bf MUs Kllzabeth Joyce.
Uoth teachers were appointed.
Bids for the heating nnd ventilating
of No. !!5 school weie received as fol
lows: Charles 11. Scott, $990; M. F.
O'Malley, $768. Mr. O'Malley forgot to
enclose Ills check for $100, but Mr.
Francois 1 eddied down In his clothes
and pulled out a crisp gold certlllcuto
for that amount, and Mr. O'Malley de-
'poslted this. He was then awurded tho
ontract.
I'lHtMISSION CJP.ANTED.
Mrs. Jennie Jenkins, Miss B.J. Judge
nnd Mlbs Kllzabeth Wade were grant
ed permission to take the examination
for permanent certificates.
Tho Principals' Round Table re
quested, tluough Prof. Fitzgerald, that
they be allowed to use the principal's
room nt the High school once a month,
nnd tho matter was referred to tho
High school committee, with power to
act.
It was decided, at the suggestion of
Mr. Kvans, to give tho controller from
each ward power to close all night
schools at the und of this month which
cannot show u regular attendance of
over fifteen pupils.
The teacheis" pay-roll for the month
ending January 4 was pussed, and the
secretnty was Instructed to draw war
runts for the pay of the night school
teacheis for the month ending next
Thursday, upon recommendation of
the superintendent.
