They Are on the Argument List for
the Next Term Common
The argument list for thu coming
teim of court, which was mado up yes
terday, contains about llfty ensts nnd
twenty-one of these are actions for di
vorce which have leached that stage
of progression where all that Is needed
Is the decree of tiro court to dissolve
tho unpleasant bonds. This Is the teo
cinl for Lackawanna county tip to date.
When tho additional argument list Is
mado up It will contain a few more
cases, and It is probable that the num
ber of divorce cases on the tegular and
argument list will not fall shoil of
Common Pleas Cases.
The case of L J. Wolfgang asalus
the Scranton Hallway company was on
trial nil of yesterday bcfoiu Judge
Kelly in tho main coutt room. It was
called for ttlul Monday morning and
arguments to the Jury will bo made lo

Tho case of George Cooper against
the City of Scranton was teady for Un
charge of the court when adloitruing
hour arrived yesterday. When tho
plaintiff rested, the city asked for a
non-hUit, and when tno evidence was
all in for binding instiuctions to the
Jury, but both reijuests Here refused.
The non-suit and binding Instructions
were .asked for on the ground that the
city was not liable for an error of
Judgment lu placing or constructing
the sewer which is charged with being
responsible for the Hooding of (.'oojier's
