MORE TESTIMONY IN OLD rOItGE
P. W. Gallagher Told ot Having
Given Money to Councllmen Who
in Tih'U Declaio Tliey Wever Re
ceived It Company Says it Gave
the Money to Two Cliurclies First
Repoit of the Grand Jury to the
Court Manlago Licenses Other
The cose of Kcogh ugainst thu Scian
ton mid Pittsloii Hallway company was
proceeded with yesterday before Piesl
dent Jtulga Kdwuids, despite the fact
that the court, on the previous day,
ptactlcally ruled that the plaintiff's
decimation did not assail the ordinance
which they arc proceeding against.
The plaintllfs were desirous of pio
I'oedlng, nnd the defense was not ob
jecting, so the taking of testimony was
allowed to continue.
The piluclpal witness of the day wan
P. "W. Gallagher, lonneily claim agent
lor the Scranton Hallwav company, and
now editor of the Fieo Picss, Ho was
called by the plaintiffs to prove their
contention that money was paid to se
em o the passage of the flist oidlnatice.
Gallagher told that he was despatched
by General Manager Slllimau to Old
Foige to sccuio it fianchlse and fur
nished with ?500 In cash lo woik the
oidliiinicc through councils. He gu
SJOO, ho said, to Thomas Mtinioo; $ir,0
to Thomas Stevens, and $ir0 to Fal
ikk Gallagher, thieo of the four cmin
i llmen who voted for the oullnancc,
Antonio Illancardl, the fotlith council
man to favor the oulinance, demanded
money, Mr. Gallagher said, and lie took
him to the company's olllce to hne
General Manager Silliinau deal with
him. The witness understood Blan
caidi got $2,1.
The four accused councllmen look
the stand and swore positively they
never leeMved the money Gallagher
alleges he gave them, and Blancardi
lutthor denied that Mr. Sllllman gave
him money. He admitted that befoie
he became a councilman and befoie
the boiough was otganUed, he vvoiUed
"even weeks, at Mr. Gallagher's solici
tation, seeming the signatures of prop
eorty holdeis along the line of the pio
posed road, to a paper giving the com
pany the right of way, which pioceed
lng is necesary in townships. He re
ceived To for tills wotk. Alt the sig
natures could not be secuted and the
company waited until the municipality
became a borough, when it went Into
the council and seemed the light ot
way. Mr. Biaucaidi became one of the
si councilman and was one of the four
to vote lor the oidinance. He was
given ii pass, but later letumed it,
when Judge Gunster l tiled that it was
unpioper loi him to accept it.
The company contends that no money
was furnished Mr. Gallagher to use in
the council, and further that Mr. Gal
lagher did not give any money to coun
cllmen. The company agiced with the
citizens of Old Forge tli.it If the tran-chi'-e
was gi anted the company would
be willing to give the community $1,000
and that after discussing aiious
me ins of paying the bonus, so that it
would do the greatest good to the
greatest number, it was decided to
divide it between the two principal
chuiches. A check for $300 was sent
to one pastor, and a voucher was fur
nished Mr. Galalgher to secuie $TM in
cash and give it to the other pastor.
The $300 check, with the pastor's le
ccipt, will be oftoied in evidence. It is
dated Oct. 1", IsftH, the day after the
meeting at which the fianchlse was
On noss examination, Mr. Gallagher
was shown a copy of the Fiee l'ies
containing an artii le headed "The
Coutt IJii.s in the Sllllman Case," in
which Gcnei.il Manager Sllllman is
loundly scored. He was asked if ho
wioto it. and admitted be did. The
paper was then olfeied in evidence, to
show that the witness was not kindly
disposed towaids Mr. Sillimnn.
The detenso in this case is ptactlcal
ly tlic same as will be ottered in the
bribery case against Gencial Manager

CAN'T COMPEL THE REGULAR
RUNNING OF CARS.
City Solicitor Watson in an Opinion
SayB There Is Nothing in tho
Frouchlses Which Requites Com
pany to Run Cais at Regular In
tervalsSays Company Agiced to
Do Nothing and Is Satisfactorily
Keeping Its Agreement Purchase
of Plant Is Impt act cable.
Some weeks ago tho lallwuy com
mittee of the common council drew up
ccttaln questions beating upon tho
right of the city to compel the Scian
ton Hallway company to tun cais at
tegular Intervals und lo compel Its
employes to pass an examination to
discover their illness.
These questions weio submitted to
City Solicitor Watson and In a lengthy
opinion rresented to the committee
yesleid.ty ho answois them fully and
completely. Ho declines he can Und
nothing In the franchises of the com
pany which gives the city the light to
compel the running of ens at regular
Intervals, and says that In his belief
theic Is no express authority given the
city in any existing not to compel nio
tonncn and condtictois to pass an ex
amination, The city solicitor has a habit of say
ing things with a picturesque blunt
liess that is generally very humorous.
He sums up his answer to the Hist two
questions In the following language
referring to the agreements cnteicd
into by the company: "They (the com
pany) have agiced to do nothing. The
councils demanded nothing and so far
as I am able to observe the company
is keeping its agrement faithfully." A
special meeting of council was called
for last night to consider the opinion,
but no quorum was niescut.
Tho full text of tho opinion Is given
To the Cluitman and Ontkincti of the Itailnay
Committee of tho Common Council, City of
Centlemcn: The follow !nD- outelions, submitted
