LAST TOUCHES TO SUPPLEMEN
TARY REORGANIZATION BILL.
Besides Providing That the Recorder
Shall Appoint a Delinquent Tax
Collector and That Five Extra Pa
trolmen Shall Be Allowed, It Cie
ntes the Office of City Detective,
Does Away with the Keyser Valley
Fireman and Makes Changes in
Bonds of Subordinate Officials.
Woik on tile supplement to tho tear
ganlzallou ordinance was completed
yesteidav nnd It was seni tn the prin
ter, that It may be repotted In shape
for passage without delay.
As stated In yesterday's Tiibune, It
provides that the collector or delin
quent tnxes shall be a separate official,
to be appointed by tho mayor, nnd that
live additional patrolmen shall be al
lowed. Further than this, It cieatcs
the olllce of city detective and does
away with the permanent man for the
Keyser A'nlley Hose company. Some
minor changes are made In the mat
ter of the bonds of the superintendent
of health and other bittcnus in the two
big departments. Under the old otdl
nance It was stipulated that . these
bonds should be given lo the dhector.
The supplementary ordinance dlieots
that they shall be given to tho le
cordor. Common Councilman Norton, of tho
Twenty-first ward, declares that ho
will light the supplementary ordinance
if It piovldes for doing away with the
permanent man for the Keyser Valley
Hose company. He claims to bave six
teen votes pledged in common council
to defeat the ordinance If the Kevser
Valley company Is not taken rate of.
No action was taken in the matter
of piovldlng for the legulntlou of the
department of chnilties and correction.
This will be attended lo later. It is
the judgment of tbo recorder and' bis
cabinet that until "ueh time as the
director of tills department enters upon
tlie duties of his office, it Is not expe
dient to prvide him with a salaty.
Mote apptopilate would it be, they
feel, lo apply this money lo paying tho
expenses of pioving that the depart
ment of charities and ronettions and
noL the Scranton poor boaid should
manage the charities of the second
class cilv of Scianton.
The fact that Chief of the File I3e
paitment Xtzlcmann and Chief of
Police Robling have not yet been sworn
in as tlie heads or the bureaus or fite
and police, lespertivelv. ns Recoider
Molr has deiiai?d they would be.
gives some color to the stories to tlie
effect that the file and police forces
ai p to be managed bv other bands,
niieclot of Public Safety demons,
when questioned on tills matter, will
onlv say that he has not a jet made
E. E. Robathan and II. E. Paine, two
of the seventeen lejected common
count ilmen eonfcired yesteiday tela
tivo to taking steps to secuie their
seats. Thev, however, anived al no
conclusion rutther than that they are
still detei mined to test the matter.
How important It is that these extra
membeis should be seated is apparent
when It Is lemembered that the Su
pieme court may declare the Muehl
lnonner act unconstitutional. Recoider
Moir, by omitting to perfoim the du
ties ol mayor and taking on tlie du
ties of lecoider. practically lesignecl
the office of mayor. At any late the
Democtats will so contend and should
the Muehlbronner act be knocked out
they will proceed to elect a major.
The old second class oily laws me
sctlbe that a vacancy in the otlke of
iniivor shall be filled by councils until
the next annual municipal election.
Tlie Democrats aie al present In tho
majority in councils, and In case of
the dereat of thu Mueblbionner acl
the city government would be turned
completely over lo them.
Tt is also contended that as the city
of Scranton is entitled to thli ty-nlne
cummoii counellmcn. am legislation
thai does not teceive at least twenty
votes in the lower btanch will not be
valid. In view of the fact: that much
impoitatil legislation Is now about to
be passed to put the new charter into
eifect, this matter is made moment
ous. Citv Cleik I.avelle sent a communi
cation to City Solicitor Watson jes
terday i dative to the matter of tinn
ing over the assessment books to the
new board of city asscssots.
ruder tlie thlid class city laws the
