HAD SECURED A VERDICT OF
?7.000 AGAINST THE CITY.
Judgo Archbald, However, Granted
a New TrlnlTho Plaintiff

Permanently Injured hy railing
Over an Obstruction on the Side
walk on Adams Avenue The De
fense Says She Is Attempting to
Blame Old Ailments on the City.
'Die still of Mary Dulllti against the
city of Scranton was called for re
trial ycHtetday before Judge Kelly In
Hie main court room.
She sties for 2(),00 damages for
personal Injuries alleged to have been
sustained by falling over a largo fly
wheel which was lying on the sidewalk
on Adam? avenue. In front of the Sev
enteenth ward voting booth, Nov. !,

January the plaintiff secured a Ver
mel of $7.fin0. Judge Archbald grant
ed a new trial in march on the strength
nl" ii plea of City Solicitor Vosbllrg
that new evidence had been discov
ered that would tend to put an entirely
dirfeicnt phase to the case.
Tills newly discovered evidence has
not yet been disclosed In detail, but
Its ger.tral effect Is that the plaintiff
was living treated for the Invalidities
she alleges resulted from the fall, long
before the accident occurred.
Tlie tntlt rests largely on the testi
mony of medical experts. The plain
tiff puis physicians on tlie stand to
show U nl she was physically sound
before the accident, nml that since the
actitictil, and as a result thereof, she
Is almost a wreck. The most serious
nihiunt complained of Is an Injury to
the eye. In railing, her face struck
the etlge of the liy wheel, and as a
result of the cuts ami bruises near
one of Ihe eyes she Is almost blind.
It is also claimed her nervous system
is seriously deranged ami that her in
ternal organs arc permanently affect
ed. The defense contends that Miss Dttf
lln's nervous ami Internal ailments
and trouble with her eyes extend be
yond tho .time of tlie accident, and
that she was treated by various phy
cians long before 1S!i:l for these very
ailments she now alleges are the re
sult of a negligent act on the part of
As to the negligence, the defendant
will strenuously deny liability. Tho
city will admit that Miss Dullin Tell
over a liy wheel on Adams avenue nn
the night in iiuestion, 'but will hold
that Miss Dulllu, having defective
eyesight, wandered off the sidewalk
and on to the space between the Hag
stones and the fence line, where the
liy wheel was lying. She received a
slight gash over the eye. It will ho
admitted. hut the physician who
dressed llie wound will testify that
It was superllclal,- could not possibly
have affected the eyesight and was
entirely healed in live days.
The plaintiff admits that tlie fly
wheel was noL on the flag stones, but
contends that a part, of its vim was
resting within a few inches of Hie
Hags, and on the space allotted for
Kx-Distrlet Attorney Martin, of Lu

Solicitor D. J. Davis are earing for the
A verdict for the defendant was re
turned in the wage case of Mary J.
Cooper against William Petlierick.
When it was previously tried tho
plaintiff secured Judgment for $210.
She sued for .services performed In
caring for her sister, the wife of the
defeiidaiil, during her last illness. The
defendant denied that she did more
than occasionally visit her sick sister
and that whatever services she per
formed were prompted by sisterly tlc
vollon and not by any agreement on
his part to recompense her. John It.
I'M wards anil Joseph O'Mrien appeared
for the defendant.
The Scranton Kloetrlcnl works, rep
resented by Attorney Thomas Hand
ley, secured a verdict of $2!i.02 against
V.. T. Craven. Tho company did work
for the defendant and lie owed a bal
ance of the above amount. There was
no appearance for tho defendant.
A jury was out at adjournment in
the case of Spruks brothers against
I'n trick- Lally, which was on trial Mon
day afternoon and yesterday morning
herore Judge Carpenter.
Tin- plaintiff failing to appear, a.
non-suit was granted In the case of IT.
J. Kunz against the New York Dental
company. Attorney Charles L. Hnw

of William rtrlght against Frank AVeb
sler, In which a claim of $17 for tlm
nut of a house in North Scranton is
in dispute. Tlie defendant rented the
house from issi to isss ami upon quit
ting the promises was still owing a
goodly amount of rent. He kept pay
ing on n until ty.i.i, wnon Ur ceased and

AWARDING OP CONTRACTS
Councilmen Up in Arms Against
Director Hitchcock's Action.
They Want to Award Them.
There aio certain members of coun
cils who believe that Director of Pub
lic Safety Hitchcock has not the right
or authority to advertise for bids for
the now apparatus tn be put-chared for
the lire department, and lo open such
bids and award the contracts for the
purchase of the equipment.
Thrse gentlemen contend that ho is
assumlng'powers that ave not vested
in him and there will accordingly bo a
resolution Introduced in the common
council to-morrow night directing the
city clerk to advertise for bids for this
apparatus, such bids lo be opened by
either councils or the lire department
committees thereof, and awarded.
Those who are behind the scheme
hold that there Is nothing in the
Muehlbrcnner act which gives the
heads of departments the power to
award contracts. They contend that
the particular section of the act read
ing "No contracts shall bo entered In
to or executed directly by the coun
cils or any committee thereof" does
not cover tlie "awarding" of contracts,
which they hold to be an entirely dif
It will be remembered that City So
licitor Watson, in nn opinion furnished
to Director of Public Works Roche
some time ago, set forth that under
the Mnehlbronner act the head of the
proper department and the recorder
are given the power to award con
tracts. If the resolution to be intro
duced passes both branches of coun
cils some interesting developments
may be looked for.

The city now carries $42,000 insur
ance ow tlie municipal building and
$11,000 on the several fire houses and
on the city engineer's records, maps,
etc. On this the premium, with the
increased rate now demanded by the
insurance companies, will be ?56-' for
the coming year.
Tlie old system nf Insuring every
thing in sight, including tlie npparattts
in tlie fire houses, the stone crusher
and steam roller, and a lot of other
things, has been dispensed with. The
