Seamans in a slulement made to a Tribune man yes terday afternoon declared that the services of a clerk are absolutely In dispensable In the city assessor's oillco nncl sought to show that instead of making an exorbitant demand this year the assessors are actually asking for less than they have In past years. He produced the following statement showing the expenses of the depart ment for the fiscal year, IDOO.-'Ol. Salary of three as.se--ors $ 3,000 llonil of ieislon 2,000 Tttenty-one assistants 4,,'ij'i Making ta- duplicates ,100 Assesntncnt books- 12.5 Slatloneiy, pi luting and stamps 200 Sheds for la-c duplicates 75 Total "J0.-I2U Amount n-ked for PW2-0.! '),S)C5 !ccica-e ,..? 301 The amount of $l,r29, included In tVie above statement, was appropriated this present year as a detlcicncy for the fiscal year 1000-01 and can properly be Included as part of tho actual running expenses for the year 1900-01, "We can't do without a clerk," said Air. Seamans, "some of tho members of the estimates committee to tho con trary notwithstanding. The salaries of the clerks in every other city depart ment except the treasurer's is paid by the city, and there can be no good rea son advanced why the salary or our clerk should not also bo paid by the city. "It is idle to say that we do not need a clerk. We are away from our office for four or five months every year, and IL is absolutely essentlul that some one be left in charge to receive visitors and answer inquiries. A vast amount of de tail work remains for the clerk to do during the lest of tho ycai, and until the counellmen asecitain for them selves just what this Is they cannot act intelligently in this matter."

Defense Produces a Raft of Wit nesses to Show That tho Plaintiff Suffered from Extremely Dofectivo Vision Before tho Time of tho Ac cident Dr. Longstreet and MIbs Duffln Flatly Contradict Dr. Boos Four Judges Engaged in the Trinl of Common Picas Cases. Nearly ull the testimony In the Duf fln case Is in una it will go to the jury today. The city occupied nearly all of yes terday In the presentation of testi mony tending to show that tho phy sical disorders Miss Duflln alleges aro tho result of the nccldent of Nov. 4, 1893, nre due to other causes, and exist ed prior to the nccldent. One of tho prlnclpnl aliments that Miss Duilln nllcges In consequent of tlie accident is blindness of one eyo and partial blindness In tho other. A raft of witnesses were produced by tho defense to show that her eyes were In tills condition long before the accident took place. One of these witnesses, Mrs. W. K. Dolnn, could not bo brought into court, nnd her testimony as given at the prior trial was read from the stenog rapher's notes. It was In effect that three years before tho accident tho plaintiff was a frequent visitor at the homo of Mrs. Dolan's parents nnd that it was then readily apparent she was very defective In vision. Sho would enter a room without recognizing tho presence of another party until the second party spoke or made a noise to attract her attention, and nt table, instead of directly grasping anything passed to her, she would have to feel about for it until her band would come in contact with It. SIGHT WAS IMPAIRED. Dr. L. M, Gates, whose testimony was largely responsible for the grant ing of a new trial after the first ver dict of $7,000, was the next to testify. He told that on April 1, 1894, nnd less than a year after the accident. Miss Duflln came to his office for treatment. Sho stated then that her sight hud been Impaired for a number of years and that she was fearful of becoming totally blind. She made lio mention whatever ot the accident. The defense a'ttempted to show by Dr. Gates what caused the impair ment of vision, but objection was made by the plaintiff's counsel and under the net of 1S93 it was ruled out. Dr. Joseph F. Grant nnd Dr. Gilbert Mur ray were also called for this purpose but on the same ground their evidence was declared to be inadmlssable. M. W. Kelly, of Madison avenue, who claimed he knew Miss DttlTin in 1590, when sho taught a private school on Gibson street, testified that ho played euchre with her as a partner tit the Cummlngs' home In that year, nnd that he readily observed she was near-sighted. She read the cards with great effort and invariably had to hold her band within a few inches of her face. The witness created considerable merriment by some of his answers and set the whole court in roars when he referred to City Solicitor AVatson as "General Watson" and explained that there were so many colonels nnd ma jors on the other side he thought the defense ought to have a good military title for at least one of Its two repie senlatives. COLONEL PROTESTED. Colonel Fitstslnnnons protested against whnt he was pleased to char acterize as invidious comparisons by Implication and an effort to rob Major Wan en, Colonel Martin, Dragoon O'Malley and himself of their military honors. Miss Ella Shaw, a dressmaker, testi fied to having met Miss Duflln at Mitchell's dining robin, on Linden street, In 1S93, a year before the acci dent, nnd that Mis Duflln besought her to go Into partnership, as she, Miss Duflln, was no longer able to do all kinds of dressmaking, because of her failing eyesight. Samuel Newman, Superintendent or Police Lonn B. Day, Vemn Long, Mis. Frances Mitchell. M. J. Mitchell, May Leonard, all testliled that Miss Duilln took her meals at Mitchell's dining looms In 1S92, and that It was notice able to everybody her eyesight was ex tremely poor. When she counted change she woyld have to hold it close to her eyes; In cutting meat on her plate she would bend close to the table; on en teilng or leaving she would have to feel around for the handle of the door, and In passing along through the dining loom she would have to feel her way. Dr, W. E. Allen, superintendent of the bureau of health, testified that ho examined Aliss Duflln a year nyo and found no conditions existing thai would cause the Incontinence she complains of, or tho neurt'Hthenio disorders she aveis sho suffers from, Dr, C, H. Fisher was tho last witness for the defense. Ho told of having ex amined Miss Duflhi's eyes in 1S9S, and gavo it as his opinion that their con BANK BUILDING. to 71 dition was not duo lo the accident of which sho complains against the city. Dit. UOOS BECAME ANQItY. Tho plaintiff called Dr. S. P. Long slrcet as tho first witness In rebuttnl. He stated positively that nt tho time Miss Duflln was at his omcc to bo ex amined by tho defendant's physicians, Dr, Hi O, lloos nnd Dr. J, 13. O'llrlen, Dr. Hoob becntnn nngry when Miss Dttnin refused to let him participate In tho examination, because lie was "an nvowed enemy nnd personally ob noxious," nnd that ho turned upon her nnd .declared, "You have no case, and 1 will knock you out in court." Miss Duflln was then called and cor roborated Dr. Longstreet as to Dr. lloos' alleged utterance, Sho then pro ceeded to-deny explicitly various ot the allegations, made by the defendant's witnesses, which tended to show that she was nearly blind long before the accident took place. Sho never suggested partnership to Miss Shaw, for her friend, Judge Hund ley, had advised her against ever goliieT Into partnership, Sho never bent over her plate when cutting meat in tho Mitchell dining room, unless It wns when necessary to put weight on tho knife to dissect the Mitchell dining room tenderloin. Tho Mitchells nnd their friends were unfriendly to her, Miss Duflln tried to show, by reason of u dispute resulting from her charges for making a dress for Mrs. Mitchell. Sho llatly denied that sho told Dr. Gates that sho had had trouble with her eyes for many years, What she did tell him was that she had had an operation performed in Phila delphia, when she wns a girl, to euro a "squint" In one eye. She never played cards at the Cummlngs' home, Bhe suld, and positively repudiated the distinc tion of the humorous Mr. Kelly's com pany as a partner In euchre. She did not go to Dr. Roos' ofllce on November 22, but did go there early in December, nnd had the experience of being rudely ejected, so sho says, when she offered only $G on her bill of $25. Mrs. Mitchell was recalled for further cross-examination, but did not respond. AVhen City Solicitor Wtason and As slstunt Solicitor Davis were Informed that the only testimony the plaintiff wanted from Mrs. Mitchell wns that the Mitchells had the contract for fur nishing meals to the city for prisoners nt the station house, they agreed to ad mit It of record. There may be some further rebuttal and sur-rebuttal testimony this morn ing, but at tho most It will not take up more than an hour. City Solicitor AVatson will argue the chso for the defense, and Major AA'ar ren for tho plnlnttff. The speeches and Judge Gordon's charge will likely con sume the whole day. Four Judges Presiding. Four judges were presiding yesterday in common pleas. Judge Kelly, in the main court room, spent the day in the yet-unfinished case of Depuy against Brink; Judge Gordon is sitting in the Duilln case, in No. 2, and in No. 3, Judge Edwards, first, and then Judge Newcomb, took a band in helping to dispose of the list. Before Judge Edwards, In the case of H. AVehrum against F. G. Itarrlck, a verdict was found for the plaintiff in the sum of $36. Douglas & Aran Dusen represented the plaintiff, and Clarence Balcntine, the dofeudnnt. Before Judge Newcomb, a verdict of $407.70 In favor of the plaintiff was re turned in the case of AA'illiam H. Flies against S. N. Blake, of Ehnlra. It was a suit on a balance on a sub-contract for wiring the A'alley House. O'Brien & Martin represented the plaintiff. There was no. appearance for the de fendant. Judge Newcomb was engaged at ad journing time in the trial of the case of Joseph Gray, of Mayfleld, against the Scranton Railway company. Gray claims $123 for services in settling, to the satisfaction of the company, at the company's behest, a damage suit insti tuted by Airs. Anna Propenyok, of Ed gerton, who was Injured In a trolley wreck at Jermyn. The company denies that Gray was employed by it or any of its agents. II. D. Carey is the plaintiff's attor ney. The company is represented by Hon. t:. P. O'Malley. In the case of II. C. Mott against John Beuore, administrator of the es tate of George Denote, deceased, judg ment by ngreement was entered for tho plaintiff in the sum of $6,flr.0. It is an amicable action on a mortgage. The plaintiff, was repiesented by O'Brien it Martin, and the defendant by John F. Scragg. A non-suit on account nf the non appearance of the plaintiff, was entered In the case of Ellen L. AVnlsh against the Metropolitan Life Insurance com pany. AVlllard, AVarren it Knupp rep resented the defendant. A non-suit was also gi anted, for the same i en Mn, in the case of Cramer & Strauss against the '., AA'eiugart estate, Ralph L. Ley appeared for the defend ant. The case of John J, Mnhar against N. D. Monsky, garnishee, and tho case of M. Blefeld & Co. against M. D. Breschel were continued. Not considering the cases on tilal, all except four of the fifty on this week's list have already been disposed of, twenty of them finally, nnd twenty three by continuances. In Orphans' Court. In the Orphans' couit, yesterday, arguments were heard by Judge A. A. A'osburg In the estate of Letty Ann Ruland, deceased, Tho principal con test was, with respect to u large clulm presented by Abel Tonkin. This was opposed by Attorneys Horn nnd Mnr t In. representing the estate and somo of the heirs, on the ground that it was barred by the statute of limitations. Attorney II, D. Carey, who appeared for the claimant, contended that tho stntute was tolled by the bringing of a suit before a justlco of the peace, and by tho dentil of tho decedent. Decision was reserved. In the Mary Dockerty estate, the arguments in tho will contest were postponed on account of engagements of counsel, , Today has been fixed for tho adjudi cation of tho nccounts of executors, ad ministrators and guardians, which will come up for examination and final con firmation, IF YOU WISH To buy a property, To rent a property, To sell a proper! t.

One Is to Recover 910 Given na Re lief to One of Their Number, Who Returned to Work Suit Is Based on a Cut-throat Jdginent Note Tho Other Suit Is One in Slander Directed Against Dr. H. E. Imts: by tho Executive Board Damages in the Sum of $5,000 Asked. Two suits weroi instituted yesterday by tho street car strikers, through their attorney, Clarence Halcntlne, One ot them Is on a Judgment note for $10 nnd has as defendant Charles II. Keller, a member who quit the union and returned to work. Tho other has ns defendant Dr, II, E. Lutz, .who is nlleged to have slandered the executive board of Division 1GS, Amalgamated Association of Street Railway Em ployes. Tho first suit discloses the fact that tho relief fund which the strikers dis tributed wns given out only ns n lonn. Each man receiving relief was required to sign n thirty-day cut-throat judg ment note, on which nn execution can bo Issued against anything the signer possesses, not excluding wearing ap parel other than that on his person, and not even excluding this, If tho man happened to bo taking a bath, or was undressed in bed. The note on which the suit was brought was signed by Keller October 19, 1901. He returned to work shortly afterwards. Similar suits aro to be brought against nil tho ex-strikers who received relief. Tho case against Lutz Is based on al leged statements he mnde at the time he supposed he was settling the strike. On January l!i, it Is nverred In the statement, ho declared in the presence of divers persons, that "the executive board of Division 108, Street Car Men's union, have failed and nre unable to account to Division 1GS for $1,100, and they are x ." The next day, so the declaration says, Lutz declared: "A certain social club Is having a ban quet at the rooms of the executive board or Division 1GS, Street Car Men's union, and the executive board of Division 1GS, Street Car Men's union, are furnishing ithe money out of the division's money." The divers persons referred to are the commmittee from the union who waited on Lutz, representing them selves as being In the movement to take the control of the strike out ot the hands of the executive committee. the purpose of their visit being to find' out what Lutz and tho genuine insur gent committee of Ave were up to. Damages in the sum of $5,000 are asked. Attorney Balentlne entered a rule in Prolbonotary Copeland's office giving notice of tho puipose of tho plaintiffs to choose arbitrators Febru ary 8, at 9 o'clock a. m. The plaintiffs are enumerated as follows: P. J. Shea, George Kagler, Thomas Edwards, Fred Surlne, Patrick Messltt, M. J. Barrett, Andrew Lavelle, P. J. Keegan anil AA J. Marlatt. Special Session of Court. President Judge Edwards yester day handed down an order providing for a special session of criminal court during the week beginning February 21 which Is Lackawanna week in the supreme court. The purpose of the special session Is to clear up .the cases that will be left over fiom the regular February term. There are two murder trials and a number of other big cases on tho regu lar list, and this, it is almost a surety, will make It impossible to reach all of the 334 cases in the two weeks of the regular term. Cases left over will be placed on the list for the special week and two outside judges called In to try them. It may be that the list for the spe cial term will not be as large as antici pated as It Is understood that verdicts of no pros are to be taken in the bribery cases against C. W. McKinney, Simon Thomas and possibly some oth ers in which the Municipal League is the prosecutor. Rule to Bring Suit. Michael Horan, of South Ablngton, by Attorney It, H, Holgnte, secured a rule yesterday to compel Mollis AT, Morris, of Scranton, to shpw cause why he should not, within ninety days, bring an action In ejectment to test the title of a one acre lot in South Ab lngton which Horan claims by squat ter sovereignty nnd for which Mortis holds a sheriff's deed, Nov. S, 1901, Morris bought at sher iff's sale the property of AVilllam Jen kins, which the lot In dispute adjoins Tho deed for the Jenkins property pre sumes to Include tho lot Horan cIrIiiis, Ho questions Morris' title on tho ground that lie has occupied it openly, notoriously and adversely for more than thirty-five years.
