To make Senator Woller's contention
clear It Is necessary to understand
that the act of 1895 provides that
cities shall be divided Into three
classes; that, upon any city attaining
a certain population, It shall he ad
vanced In classification; that when a
ensus shows a city Is entitled to an

It will nut do, says Senator Wcller,
to hold that the classification act does
not stand, however, because then there
would be no other second clnss or any

again would have had their trouble
for their pains.

QUESTION OF A MARSHAL.
It Is Being Considered by Attorney
A Pittsburg exchange says: "Attor
ney Ceneral Griggs Is giving some
thought to the legal status of United
States Marshal Kred (J. Leonard, whose
ofneial residence Is at Pittsburg, but
whose residence as a private citizen Is
In Potter county. At the request of
tho Pennsylvania senators he 1m con
sidering what effect the Connell bill
creating the Middle Judicial district
has had upon him, with a view to de
termining If he cannot serve as mar
shal of the new district for the rest of
his term, which lasts for about another
year. If Mr. Griggs says he can, then
Mr. Leonard will simply move his offi
cial residence from Pittsburg to what
ever city, probably Scranton, the Judge
V be appointed will designate.
"The senators hope tho attorney gen
eral will decide that this can bo done.
Such a decision would at once (settle
the bitter fight between Hepresentatlve
Connell's man, Uachorach, and Hepre
sentatlve Palmer, who prefers Leonard
to the deputy executive clerk. If tho
transfer can be made, It will give
Leonard two full terms of four years.
If he must be appointed In the new
district the new appointment will clip
one year off his present term and his
new commission would bt for only
four years. Nothing will be done until
the attorney general decides the ques

LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE.
(Under this heading short letters of Interest

assume responsibility for opinions htrt expressed.
Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: In the discussion now going on among
the members of the Grand Army of the ltrpuullr
poMs of this city as to which of two designated
prorrtles the) should purrhie, I wish to gi
011 record as being decidedly opposed to lie
purchase of the Wirdsor property, and in fior
of the Leonard lot for the following icasoas:
l'irst l'ropertv has grratl) depiecl.itod, and
is still depreciating in the neighborhood of tin
Windsor Iluslniss hccms to have left that
IHjrtlon of l'enn avenue without prospect of a
Second The pewt would be altcgtlher isolated
there, and would not hatmonlze with the cur
rouiulings While, If loc.ited upon the Leon
ard lot. it would be contiguous to the- public
buildings, and near neighbor to the Young
Men' Christian Atsoclation building and the 1
bright library, ft would also follow the rule,
which appears common to all rilie.s, ii.: to
group public building together.
Third Property in the vicinity nf the Ijeniurel
lot is constantly being improved, and conse
quently increasing in value.
Fourth Tho gencr.il comlltloin which operate
lo establish real estate xalue-s, if applied to tho
Windsor property, would teem to show that the
prico asked in several thousand dollars too high.
It the pioperty Is so gooel and cheap, why does
the owner a wealthy man manifest to great
a dciire to get rid of it, by unloading it kiH
the Cirand Army of the llepuhlic association?
l'ifth The Windsor, then, is not .1 bargain,
and if It was, the Grand Army of the Republic,
I11 seeking a permanent home, does not anil
should not engage In real estate speculation as
Sixth The )ears that have elajKed since the
Vl11d40r waa erected have brought about many
Improvements in building. All of time could
be utilized In a new (.tructure planned and built
solely for the uses of the Grand Army of the
For le-ss inoiic) than is asked for the Windsor
property .1 vacant lot can be purchased, a suit
able building ereeteel thereon, fully equipped for
the purposes required, which, I believe, would
be far better than purchasing, remodeling, re
pairing and fitting up an old hotel property.
As a final cuggcMlon, I would add that thes
fact that wc are already Installed in the Wind
sor building should not influence a single vote
in its favor, for there in no obligation, what
ever, to remain, as I understand, and the Grand
Army of the ltepubllc can be relied upon to pay
all rents and other proper charged for the time
it occupies the premises.
