He Is Charged with Using the Mails
to Defraud.
Deputy United Htates Marshal J. W.
Snyder made an Important, arrest yes
terday when ho served a warrant upon
Heorgc P. Mahle, at Wllkcs-Barrc.aiul
later arraigned him before Commis
sioner llulin on tho charge of using
tho malls for fraudulent purposes.
Mohlo was held In $1,000 bail for a
hearing this afternoon,
Ho only recently loft tho Western
penitentiary at Allegheny, where ho
served a sixteen months' sentence for
practically tho Identical offense of
which ho is now licensed. On the for
mer occasion also, he conducted ills
operations in Wllkes-Barre, His game
consisted in writing two largo busl.
ness houses in the eastern states, and
making big orders, representing him
self to bo a man of wealth.
In numerous Instances his letters
contained offers of exchanging one
kind of merchandise for another,
mostly of a produce nature. Ho re
ferred all parties to Wllkes-Barre
banks and In some Instances is known
to have sent out worthless checks on
the hanks. The return of these and
the discovery that they were valueless
resulted in an investigation being In
stituted, and Wednesday a warrant
was Issued for his arrest.
After the hearing he was taken to
the Luzerne county Jail, In default of
$1,000 ball, and this afternoon at '1
o'clock full testimony will be heard
In the case,
Tho Director of Public Safety B,o
quested to Furnish Select Council
with His Henson for Awarding
Contracts to Highest Bidders.
Committee Appointed to Investi
gate Certain Actions of Controller
Howell Sewer Contract Awarded.
Other Important Business.
The select council wants to know
why Director of Public Hatcty Worm
see nnd ox-ltocorder Molr awarded the
recent contracts for a. flro engine and
for flro hose to the highest, Instead of
to tlie lowest responsible bidders.
President Chittenden Introduced a
resolution nt last night's meeting di
recting Director Wormsor to give coun
cils bis reasons for this action, and also
reqtiest'ng him to furnish to councils
tho names of tho agentB present In tho
Interests of the successful bidders, Tho
resolution was passed unanimously,
without discussion.
Council also decided to appoint a
conunltt'je of three to Investigate tho
alleged neglect of Controller Howell In
not furnishing a statement of all de
ficiencies to tlie councils at the begin
ning of tho fiscal year and his action
In refusing to oby tho couuciltnaiilo
resolution dliectlng him not to coun
tersign warrants for any bills not ap
proved by Hie auditing committee.
Chairman Chittenden appointed as
members of this committee three of
tlie controller's outspoken opponents,
Messrs. Vaiiglinn, ('lemons and Oliver,
The matter was brought up by tho
reading of several communications
from tho controller. One of these set
forth that the amount of unexpended
balances not subject to he merged re
maining on bis books from last year
amounted to $l,Gl:!.:!:t. Another com
munication set forth that there are
now on file In tho controller's ofllco de
ficiency bills remaining unpaid to the
amount of $!,7f)4.l.", this In addition to
the $15,000 worth of deficiency bills
piovided for In tills year's general ap
propriation ordinance.
Mr. Vaughiin claimed that the con
troller had a knowledge of a large
number of these bills when the esti
mates committee was meeting and he
censured him for not sending them in
at Hint time. It was finally decided
to refer this matter and still another
communication in which Hie con
troller signified liis intention of con
tersigning warrants for bills upon tho
approval of the head of tlie proper
department only, to tlie above men
tioned special committee for investi
gation. In this connection it is interesting to
note a resolution offered by Mr. Mer
rliiian. One ,of tlie warrants recently
countersigned by tlie controller upon
the mere approval of the head of the
proper department was a warrant for
$40 drawn In favor of Dr. AV. K. Allen,
superintendent of the bureau of health,
tlie money to be used by him in pay
ing parties who bury dead dogs.
After setting forth these facts and
noting that the payment of this money
to Dr. Allen was Illegal because it was
an advance payment, Mr. Merrinian's
resolution directs the doctor to pay
back the money into tlie city treasury
and further directs tho controller not
to certify any such warrants in the
future. It was passed unanimously.
Council also awarded a contract, tlie
first awarded by any but the heads
of departments since the "ripper" hill
went into force. This contract was
for the construction of a sewer on
Broadway, Moran court. Fourth
avenue, etc., and was awarded to
Donolnie & O'Hoylc, whoso hid of
$l.til per lineal foot was the only one
received. The bids for this were
asked for some time ago by coun
Mr. Cosgrove introduced the license
tax ordinance prepared by City Ho
licltor Watson, tinder tho direction of
ox-Recorder Molr, a resume of which
appeared in the Tribune some weeks
ago. It was referred to the license
committee without comment.
Other resolutions Introduced and
passed were as follows:

When tho ordinance providing for a
sewer on Railroad alley, to relieve tho
Lackawanna avenua sewer, came up on
second reading, President Chittenden
took the floor and succeeded In having
it referred buck to comniittco in con
junction with the director of public
works, ilulming that the sewer was
entirely unnecessary.
Tho following ordinances were passed
on third rending; Providing for n pave
ment on Carbon street, between Penn
