Kaster Sunday, the greatest of all
tile Christian festivals ot tho year,
was observed religiously yesterday by
tl.L thousands of church-goers of this
city. The various churches, both Pro
testant and Catholic, were thronged at
all services with devout worshipers

as tho d.iy for the dotting of winter

which Paint Fashion has decreed shall
bo worn dttr'ng the spring and suni
inei sr-ason. In this respect, however,
it was not tiiservetl yesterday. The
reaben is c.irily explained.
Tho weather was abominable. This
adjective most properly and pffpctlvely
describes it. The day dawned in the
midst of a nasty and disagreeable di'lz
zle, which continued until after S
o'clock. The rain then stopped, but
tlio sky remained overcast throughout
tho entire day with dark grey, ominous
looking clouds which let forth little
dribs and drabs of rain nt stated in
tervals and which kept nearly every
body Indooifi who hadn't some business
As a consequence there was no Hast

Chief Itobllng said yesterday he

director, however, has the (Ire depart

When the case of Lieutenant Spell
man nnd Patrolman Jones wus brought
to the attention of Director Hitchcock
nnd he was asked how he proposed
to dpal with It, he said he preferred
to look Into the matter for himself
before dcclnrlng what he would do.
"As I understand It," the director add
ed, "there nre no police officers now
In Scrantonj that those who are serv
ing on tho force are only tentative
officers. If this Is so, it will greatly
simplify the Spellman and Jones cases,
according to my way of looking at it."
FITIB DEPARTMENT TODAY.
Colonel Hichcock will today make a
tour of the fire department houses In
company with Chief Zlzlemunn, for
the purpose of seeing for himself what
shape the department is in as regards
rmilpnient and arrangements. He has
not as yet indicated when he will in

Director ot Public Safety F. L.
Hitchcock save his first order to
Chief of Police Itobllng eaily Satur
day evening, when he verbally directed
him to strictly enforce the Sunday
closing law and to arrest all saloon
keepers or hotelkeepers who xiold In
toxicants between midnight Satin day
and midnight Sunday.
The tip was passed around and tlieie
was a great cleaning out .and closing
up of bar-rooms just before the dock
struck twelve. There were no arrests
made, which would seem to indicate
that the law was pretty genet ally ob
served. The order also directed that the win
dow curtains should be so removed
that an unobstructed viev of the bar
could be had from tho street. This
order was also generally complied
with, but in a few cases the hotel
keepers declined to obey It. There was
s-omc question as to whether or not
the Prooks law called for the closing
of bar-iooms oveiy night at V2 o'clock
and until a leversion to the act showed
this was not so. there was not a lit
tle consternation among tho saloon
men. for they realized that if it was
in the law it would be enforced by
The unoillelal announcement In Sat
urday's Tribune that Frank P. Reese
was to be Director Hitchcock's clerk
has bepn verified. Mr. Reese entered
upon the duties of that office Satur
day. He was a candidate for the posi
tion of recorder's prlvat secretary,
but there being no vacancy there, tho
itcorder secured a place for hint In Hie
public safety department.
Director Roche is entitled to two
clerks. The appropriation ordinance
contemplates tho doing away with the
clerk to the street commissioner and
the clerk In tho city engineer's office,
and the substitution for those two ot
the clerks to tho director.

the others pinioned her limbs. Two
of the men disappeared and shortly

Act of June 36, 1805, Which Has
Been Adopted by Scranton for the
Regulation of Its Bureau of Health
Deals with Every Detail Neces
sary to the Management of TMb
Feature of the City's Government.
Extracts from the Law, Showing
Some of the Changes,
By the provisions of the Muehlbron
ner act nnd the leorgunlzatlon ordi
nance accepting It In Scranton, the
net of June 2fl, ISM, becomes the code
of laws for tho regulation of tho bu
reau of health. This net Is really a
complete health department ordinance
enacted Into a stale law for second
class cities. It deals with every detail
of health and sanitation affairs nnd to
all appearances Is a thorough and ex
cellent bit of legislation.
Some of Its clausea call for extensive
changes In health affairs here. Nearly
three pages of closely printed rules are
made to apply to nuisances, the
method of abating them, tho powers
ot the health officers In entering upon
premises to look for nuisances and the
penalties imposed for maintaining
The director of the department of
public safety is given power, with the
approval of councils, to enter Into con
tracts for the removal of dead ani

being fixed for every dny the house
holder nllow3 such matter to remain
ungathercd nnd set out, in the man
t.er tho bureau may prescribe, for the
FOR SELLING BAD MEAT.
A fine not to exceed $100 Is fixed for
the offense of offpiing for sale any
tainted meats or other unwholesome
It Is made tho duty of the burpnti

placed on each vehicle used for the
conveyance of milk, together with the
name of the locality where the milk Is
obtained, or where produced. For fall
ute to thus mark wagons a fine of
$10 a day is Imposed, and for wrong
fully marking a wagon, the penally
is a line not exceeding $30.
The addition of water or Ice to
milk is declared an adulteration, and
it is made a misdemeanor to add to
milk bornclc acid, salt boradc acid,
salicylic acid, salicylate of soda or
any other add, drug compound or
substance. The penalty for violation
of this clause Is a linn of not more
than $100 and imprisonment of not
more than three month, or both, at the
discretion of the court.
Tlie section relating to contagious
and infectious dlsenses makes those
among other provisions:
In eae of an epidemic, the diiector
ot public safety, with the consent of
councils, may lease or construct hos
pitals or pest houses and engage such
physicians and nurses as may in tlie
judgment ot the director be neies
