Atgumcut court closed yejsteidny, all
of the cases on the llHt living disposed
of before court adjourned In the after
noon. In the morning1 the arguments
were resumed upon the exceptions to
the appointment of muster and Jury
to view In the matter of tho condem
nation ot Provldento nnd Ablngton
Turnpike and 1'Ianlc Uoad comiuiny.
The petition was filed last year by
ienator J. C. Vaughnn, representing a
huge number of taxpayers who signed
It. Prolrata were filed iy tho North
ern Boulevard company, the Ablngton
Turnpike company, tlie County of
Lackawanna and certain taxpayers of
South Ablmrtou who aro opposed to
the condemning of tbe load. The ob
jectors were represented yesterday by
Attorneys W. W. Wutson, W. It. Dlehl,
Ira II. Hurnt nnd County Solicitor
Herbert Taylor, while tho petitioners
were represented solely by City Solic

The objoctois aigtted that inasmuch
as similar proceedings had been
brought some years ago nnd had then
been quashed, new pioceedlngs could
not be begun. It was further contend
ed that tho Northern Houlevard com
pany has leased the turnpike nnd that
roads operated by boulevard companies
aro not subject to condemnation pro
ceedings. Mr. Vosburg In teply argued that
objections to the appointment of a
Jury could not be heard at this time,
as the act of assembly distinctly re
quires their appointment when a peti
tion has been ptesented In proper foitn.
Tho ptlnclple of res Judleet did not np
ply, he said, for the reason that the
proceeding was brought under the au
thotlty of tho state and was not an
action between ptlvate patties. Thei
wus nothing In the boulevard net, ho
said, which piecluded the application
of tbe condemnation laws to such a
Aiguments were beaiel on the ex
ceptions and remonstances to the an
nexation of n large pail of Lacka
wanna township to the borough of
Taylor. W. J. Hand, representing- tho
Connell Coal company, piotested
against tho annexation on tho ground
that the burden of taxation which
would havo to be borne by the remain
der ot the township would lie too
heavy. Attorney M. J. Donahoe alfo
argued agnlnst the annexation.
Attorney John M. Harris, represent
ing Taylor liototigh, argued In fax or
of the annexation and stilted that
eveiy free holder but one In the part
to be annexed had signed the petition.
Tho decision In the case, It Is ex
pected, will be tendered next month.
Aiguinent was made In the matter
of the rule to iiiiiihIi the Indictment In
tho case of Frank Compton, who is

There was a hearing yesterday In

tion asking for a contest In tho Klglttb
ward to determine, the legally elected
constable of the Klghth ward.
Jt was shown by most convincing
f pioof that the names of the utsjve at
tached to th" petition do not resemble
the slgnntui os of the men In question
and their names were by older of the
court stilekon fiom the petition. It
was evident they had been forged.
