In n certain town In this slate, not
much over a hundred miles from this
city, there lives a grocer who feels
within his Inmost heart that he pos
sesses the ability to become a detec
tive and to place Sherlock Holmes,
Monsieur Leeoq, Ike Seldman and all
the other crime-detectors and deduc
tive reasoners so far In the back
ground of the picture that they will
appear llko dim shadows when com
pared with him.
This gtocer got the Idea Into his
head that Scrontou was tho proper
place for him to begin his career as
a criminal hunter, nnd he accordingly
cleared off a place at the dinner tablu
on Tuesday and penned the following
application for a position, which was
received by Superintendent of Police

rHlRP IX DRSPAIR.
The Importance of the communica
tion dawned upon Superintendent Koh
llng as soon as he finished reading It
and he sent a hurry call for a messen
ger lmy that he might Immediately
wire the grocer, engnglntj him at once.
Before the boy arrived, however, he
retnembeied with deep regret that pro
lslon was made for only one detect
ive In this year's appropriation ordin
ance and that there is no fund from
which the salary of an extra tone
could tie taken.
He had to send back the messenger
boy without the message, and as a
consequence was very much down
east when seen by a Tribune man
"It's too bad," said he. "Xew York
is sure to get hint now. Such a man
as he would be of Incalculable value
next month when the big crowds get
heie to attend the convention of the
state league of Republican clubs. His
experlenco Is so varied, you know.
Just think for a minute of the value
of a man's services who has served as
constable at live county fairs and -as
policeman at an opera house for four
yeais. Why, he'd leave 'em all ut
"But his accomplishments. They're
the things. .lust think how easy he
could throw suspicion from himself by
playing that he was a mute and talk
ing -with his hands. And show me
the criminal that would suspect a lame
man of being a detective and especial
ly one who could simulate lameness
In either leg. Just think how easy it
would be for him to straighten him
self up to his full height at the proper
moment and say '1 arrest you. Marina

lame beggar but Keeneye, the Con

REDUCED RATES TO LOUISVILLE
The Newsboys' union held a nieMlng
last night, which for utotmlncss and
tumult was n record breaker. The
meeting was one of the most moment
ous In the history of the union, as
charges of grave Import were pre
ferred against James Duffy, the presi
dent of the union, nnd the resignation
lioin olllce of Mr. Duffy was rend.
The Iron-flsted, pugnacious nnd des
potic little czar of the union was suc
ceeded an president by George Perlgo,
the well known newsdealer, whom one
of the boys nominated in the forlorn
bopo that Mr. Pedigree, who has
evinced much activity In making the
newsboys' annual picnics a success,
would pilot through their strike against
tho New York papers. 1. V. Johnson,
of the North American, was also nomi
nated for th presidency, but was de
feated by a vote of 22 to tO.
Kx-Pivsldent Duffy was a much dis
gusted youth nt the end of the meet
ing. "Awe." said he. contemptuously,
"this Is only blank foolishness. Perlgo
wont tako charge of the thing and
those ltliN ought to know It."
Incidentally. Mr. Duffy Is highly In
censed at the charges of dishonesty
made against him. and vehemently ob
jected to the press committee giving
out any statement relative to them.
Said he furiously to a member of the
press committee: "Don't you go to
putting anything In the paper about
me. Understand V"
"Sure, Duffy," answered the commit
teeman, In fjar and trepidation. "I
wouldn't say a word."
The meeting was presided over by the
vice president. Israel Mori Is, Shorty
after the opening of the meeting the
following charges were preferred
against the only nnd inimitable "Duff."
Appropriating $4 given him by the
Scrantonlnn for the union.
Selling twenty-three union buttons
at 10c. per and withholding the re
ceipts. Appropriating $1.2. of $2.r.O given by
the Lackawanna News company.
Not turning in receipts of entertain
Duffy's resignation was the feature
of the night. It read: "I, James Duffy,
hereby resign the presidency of the
Newsboys' union," and to this was
added the humorous explanation: "I
am going to accept a position as presi
dent of the Delaware, Lackawanna and
Western Hallroad company."
Duffy still retains a large following
among the smaller ooys anil a numner
of these were last night ejected from
the meeting room. As three tiny little
fellows shot through the door tery
turned and pouted a Hood of billings
gate Into the unlonltes which would
have made any Jack tar In the service
turn green with envy. "Ye're all
except Duffy," howled the youngs
ters In chorus, and they kept It up un
til th? Inside guard darted out with a
broom nnd charged upon them, whereat
they retreated hastily.
V. L. Brown, tho newly appointed
building Inspector, assumed the duties
of his ofllce yesterday, and his first
olllelal net was to request City Solici
tor Watson, through Director of Pub
lic Safety Wormscr, for an opinion as
to whether a new building ordinance
should be passed by the city councils,
to make operative here the provisions
of the net of 1S?3, oreatlng a bureau
of building inspection for cities of tho
The only building ordinance which
has ever been passed In this city was
passed In 1SSS and was based upon the
thltd class city law governing build
ing Inspection, which law differs ma
terially from the uct of 1S!C, above re
Inspector Brown favors the adop
tion of a new building ordinance, con
tending that one would be necessary
nt the present time, even had Scran
ton not entered the second class ot
cities. There have been many
changes hi building methods since
ISS, he says, which practically make
the passage of a new ordinance an
imperative necessity. For Instance,
there Is no provision In the ordinance
covering the construction of steel
frame buildings, and yet such struc
tuies hax'e been erected In tho past
few years In x-arious parts of the city.
Director Wormser favors the pas
sage of a now ordinance and It is be
lieved that City Solicitor Watson will
decide that one li required to mako
the provisions of the act of lR!i."i oper
ative. Dliector Wormser said yester
day that If a new ordinance Is re
quired, ho will have Inspector Brown
draw it up, acting In conjunction with
the city solicitor.
It would seem from n perusal of the
net of ISM that the appointment of
nn assistant building Inspector Is
mandntory, and not optional with the
Inspector. The act says clearly that
"the principal olllcer of said bureau
yhall be known as the superintendent
of building Inspection and shall be
either an architect, a practical hullder,
civil engineer or enrponter, nnd the
other officers of the said bureau shall
consist of nn assistant superintendent
and such number of Inspectors, clerks
and messengers or other employe? as
the said director of public safety shall
d"em necessary, subject to the ap
proval of the city councils."
If this act Is interpreted to mean
that an assistant Inspector Is required,
then the appointment ot such an of
ficial would fall on Director Wormser
nnd his salnry would have to ho pro
vided for hy eouncllnianlc nppproprla
tlon. Inspector Brown said yesterday
that he had not as yet appointed an
assistant, but would not say why. It
may be that he Is waiting for nn In
terpretation of this law before tak
ing such action.
