plled: "We shall take no nggtesslve steps.
Anything that we may dec Ide to do

INJUNCTION AOAINST CITY OF
Present Water Companies and Va
rious Heavy Taxpayers, Including
the D. & H. Co., Oppose tho Scheme,
for a Municipal Plant -Say the
Proposed Scheme to Supply the
City with Water Is Impracticable
for Many Reasons Other Matters
of Interest in tho Courts.
An Injunction icstralnlng the City of
Caibondalo from proceeding to con
stiuct a public water woiks, was giatit
ed yesterday by President Judge H. M.
Kdv.ards at the solicitation of the pres
ent water compunles supplying C'aibon
tlale. and a number of the heaviest
taxpayers. A rule to make the Injunc
tion a permanent one was made return
able Tuesday, July .10, ut a. in.
The plaintiffs are Karl M. Peck,
Fiaulc Hollenback. Kll K. Ilendrlek,
Andiew Mitchell, Alfietl P. Tiautweln,
the Delaware and Hudson company,
the Crystal Lake Water company, the
F.lllbrook and Newton Water com
pany, the Lackawanna Valley Water
Supply company, and the Consolidated
Water Supply company. Named as de
fendants are the City of Carbondale,
John W. Kltpatrlck, mnyor, and Nich
olas S. Moon, city clerk.
At the general election. November C,
1900, the tjuestlon of lncreaing the In
debtedness by Jl 11,000 for tin put pose
of constructing u wnler woiks was
submitted to the voteis. Tliete wcte
l.fiTO votes east In favor of the piojo
sltlou and Z2 against.
HOND TRSI'K At'THOIlIZKD.
June L'2, last, an ordinance was ap
proved, authorizing the Issuing of $lir.,
non worth of 4 per cent, bonds, ami the
levying of a tax for the year lPOt of
two mills, to be followed by other taes
to pay the principal and Interest on
the proposed Issue. The city cleik Is
now advertising for sealed pioposals
for the put chase of these bonds.
The plaintiffs aer that the city can
not legally consti net the ptopohed water
works, because It was alieady In con
ttact relations with the Crystal Lake
Water company for a supply of water
when, In 18St5, It nccepted the pinvls
Ions of the Act of 1ST!.
It Is also alleged that the election
last November was Illegal, bpcauc the
question voted upon was not the one
fiuthoilzod, one being "the liieiease of
the city's Indebtedness to Jll.VOOO" and
the other, "the increase of the city's
Indebtedness by $1 tr,000."
The estimated cost of the water
works, according to the city enguitei.
Is $17n.8.'!l.etf. If the piefent Jt.l.OCS 1.'
Indebtedness of the eily Is Incredspd by
that amount, It will exceed the consti
ttitional limit of seeti pel cent, of the
Tito estimate made of the cost of a
municipal water plant for the lly of
Carbondale Is not a coitect, fair fir
reasonable estimate, It is claimed. An
adequate municipal water works can
not be built for J17.1.SS1.B6. nor for s
than jr.O.OOO. and will probably greatly
exceed said latter sum.
SAY IT IS IMPHACTICAHLN.
The consti u-tlon of the water woiks
as proposed by the estimate-, of the
city engineer Is Impracticable for the
leason that It puiposes to lake a walei
shed already appropriated by another
water company, namelj, by the Jer
niyn Water company, and which the
said Jermyn Water compuny has been
using for upwards of fifteen yciits and
any attempt to take the water theieof
lor such mtinlclp.il water works must
necessarily Involve the city In burden
some and expensive litigation, and In
ultimate defeat and fulluie.
If the proposed establishment of a
municipal water woiks or plant won
peimltted It would cause Irt'epaiable
damages, It Is alleged, to the Ctjstal
Lake Water company, the Newton and
Fallbrook Water company, Lackawan
na Valley Water Supply lompany and
Consolidated Water Supply company,
and would Impose Illegal mid burden
some taxes upon the orher plaintiffs.
The Lackawanna Vallej Water Sup
ply company and Consolidated Water
Supply company In the consti action,
acquisition or and development of their
plants, have necessarily expended and
assumed the payment of large sums of
money and are Indebted for petitions
theteof on inr.it gage bonds to uumei
ous pet sons, the security for which is
the plants and franchises of these com
panies. The erection of a municipal
water woi l,s. as contemplated, would
be, the plaintiffs aver, a practical con
flscatlon of the property and franchises
of these companies, mid would seil
ously Imperil or destroy the secuilty of
their bonds, and the ability of the com
ji. tnles to meet these obligations.
The plaintiffs me lepiesentod by
Welles & Toriey. James lr Huir and
PatleiMin & Wilcox.

by the Master in the Case Inter
esting Discussion of Somo Points
of the Law Bearing Upon Partner
shipsAmount of Money Involved
in tho Litigation,
Judge Kelly Tuesday banded down
the following opinion In the equity
case of A. F Duffy against A. O. (.511
incite. The matter came before him In
the shape of exceptions to the nmend
ed leport of the master. These excep
tions are dismissed:
When this ense wan before us on
exceptions to the otlglnal report nf the
master, all of the principal questions
at Issue between the parties weie
duly considered and disposed of, and
we are not now called upon to go over
them again, P.otli parties have tiled
exceptions to the amended repot t, to
which we must now give our atten
tion. The question inlsed In the first ev
reptlon of the plaintiff has been al
ready decided lu this case adversely
to hlnr, and the exception is now dis
missed. The plaintiff's second excep
tions Is not well taken, and Is also dis
missed. It Is sufficient to say with re
ference to It that In the decree en
tered on May 1, 1S!H, we find Inter alia
the following. "And now, Mnrch 1,
1SKS, it is ordered and decieed that an
account be taken of the partnership
dealings and transactions between the
plaintiff and the defendant from the
beginning of said par tnershlp, July.
1SSS, to the present time. And It Is
further ordered that upon taking the
said account that what shall be cer
tified to be due from either of the
said patties to the other of them be
paid by the parly fiom whom to the
party to whom the same shall be cer
tified to be due."
On April 21, 1S9!, a master was np
pointed, "to state an account of the
partnership dealings and transactions
between plaintiff and defendant, from
the beglulng of the partnership, in ac
cordance with the decree of this court
made March 1, 1S!K." The fourth ex
ception of the plaintiff Is also dis
missed; no discussion nppears to be
necessary with reference to It.
This brings us to the till i il and te
maliiing exception of the plaintiff, and
tho lit si nnd second and only excep
tions of the defendant, which refer
to the matter of charging the plain
tiff with Interest on the balance found
by the master to be due fiom him to
Hie defendant. Plaintiff contends that
he should not be charged with any In
terexf, while the defendant claims
that he should be allowed Intel est

Theie Is no settled mle upon the
question of allowing Inteiest on un
settled partnership accounts; the al
lowance or lefusal of Interest depends
upon me clicunistancf'S of each par
ticular case. Oyger's appeal, 02 Pa, 73.
Mr. Justice Shniswncid, In delivering
the opinion of the Supteine court In
that cae, says: "The fifth assign
ment of error Is In charging John
(lyger Inteiest in lor to the settlement
of accounts between the parlies. Mr.
Llndley remarks that the principles

In some eases It has been held that
the potiod of the dissolution of the

a test for the juitpo'-e: Slmighton vs.

came to the conclusion that thete Is

the allowance or lefusal of Inteiest de
pends upon the circumstances of each

safest principle to adopt. In view of
the lonfldentlnl relations of the par
ties, atid the variety and complication
of such accounts. No unbending mle
could be laid dowtr which would not,

P.lll while theie is no settled mle lo

the general mle seems to be that In
teiest will not be allowed until a bal

We see nothing In the facts nnd
circumstances In this case to war
tant any clepaituie fiom the geneial
litle. At the time of the dissolution
the plaintiff formed a new partner

the firm name of Jeimyrr & Duffy, and

htm to the partneishlp, and Mr. Oil
more gave secuilty for the payment
of all of the old firm's debts. There
weie outstanding accounts to be col
lected and debts to be paid, and It
was not possible at the end of the
dissolution to stilke any balance be
tween them. Mr. Clllmore had posses
sion of the books of the firm until
the time of the appointment of the
lecelver. They widely differed as to
the consti notion of their veihal agree
ment with reference to the division of
the profits. We ate not piepared to
say that either was guilty of any
fraud or Intentional bad faith. Plain
tiff tiled the bill In this case praying
for an account, and neither of them
can be especially held chargeable with
any delay in the piooeedlngs. I'nier
all of the clicumslances, we ale of
opinion that Interest should only be
allowed from the time the amount due
fiom the plaintiff to the defendant
was ascettalned, to wit, May 20, 1901.
