Select Councilman Vaughan Ob
jects to Way in' Which Bureau
of Health Is Run.
Select Councilman D. W. Vaughan
made n sensational attack upon Super
intendent Allen, of ''the bureau of
health at yesterday afternoon's meet
ing of tho sub-committee appointed by
tho estimates committee to cut down
the estimates submitted by the several
heads of departments.
In the estimate prepared by Director
of Public Safety F. L. Wormsor he
omitted the Item of $200 usually appro
priated for a police surgeon nnd added
It together with another $100 to the
salary of the superintendent of the
bureau of health Intending to have that
ofliclal act ns police surgeon and also
as a department physician to exam
ine policemen nnd firemen reporting
themselves sick for the purpose of pre
venting any feigning of sickness,
Councilman Vaughan objected to In
creasing the salary of the superinten
dent nnd declared that tha bureau of
health Is not up to the standard of the
other city departments.
He declared that burial permits are
frequently Issued from the bureau sev
eral days after bodies have been act
ually interred and that complaints
go unheeded for weeks until the mat
ters are finally brought to the atten
tion of the director of public safety.
Director Wormser, who was present,
arose to defend Superintendent Allen,
and declared that he always attends
faithfully to his duties and that he, as
his superior, has no fault whatever to
find with him. The $300 was finally cut
out by the committee, leaving the
salary of the superintendent $1,200, the
same figure as last year.
The committee carefully considered
the Items of $80,G2t and $68,433 asked for
the bureaus of fire and police respect
ively and decided that not a single re
duction could be made In them. Mr.
Vaughan took occasion to compliment
Director Wormser upon the manage
ment of the department.
"It is a pleasure," said he, "to ap
propriate funds for this department
because we know that only what Is ap
propriated and no more will be spent.
Director Wormser has no deficiencies
of any consequence to meet nnd for
this reason he Is deserving . of great
praise. This Is the first time in my
memory that there have been no police
and fire deficiencies to' be provided for
and the man who has brought about
this reform is to be highly compli
mented." Mr. Keller also congratulated Direc
tor Wormser, who blushed and stated
that he didn't think he should be com
plimented for simply doing his duty.
The Item of $1,260 asked by the trus
tees ot the Scranton Public Library for
the laying of asphalt sidewalks about
the library premises was cut out with
out opposition. The item of $600 for
the assistant clerk In the department
of public works was Increased to $780.
An item of $1,600 asked by Director
Roche for the fitting up of offices on
the fourth tloor and the Installation of
an elevator was cut out at the sugges
tion of Mr. demons who said that this
should properly be provided for In the
bond Issue which Is to be made. Items
of $400 for tho tiling of the corridor
on the fourth floor nnd of $480 for the
salary of an elevator operator were
also cut out.
The Item of $4,000 asked by Director
Roche for street indicating signs was
cut down to $2,000 and the item of $.'5,
000 for the cleaning- of paved streets
was reduced to $20,000.
Some objection was manifested to
the Items of $2,300 for the installation
of a stone crusher plant and of $3,400
for a new toad roller but Director
Roche argued so earnestly and con
vincingly In favor of them both that
they were not disturbed. Tho mem
bers of tho committee will meet this
afternoon to complete their work.

THEY SLEPT ON
ALLEGED TREATMENT OF THE
Councllmon Evan Evans and A. L.
Lewis Ghargod tho Health Au
thorities with Carelessness, Claim
ing' That Bedding in Brace Homo
Was Burned and That None Was
Furnished in Place of It Until Di
rector Wormser Was Appealed to.
Emergoncy Fund Approved.
Common Couifclhnen Evan Evans, of
tho Fourth ward, and A. L. Lewis, of
tho Fifth ward, charged the bureau of
health with negligence at last night's
meeting of tho common council, lu
connection with the treatment accord
ed William J. Brnco and Mrs. Lewis,
who nro quarantined In tho former's
homo on Bromley avenue.
Tho councllmcn -were discussing a
resolution offered by Joseph F. Evans,
at the request of nocordcr Connell, au
thorizing the latter official to borrow
$10,000 from one of the local banks, tho
said amount to be used In case tho
spread of the small-pox should necessi
tate Its expenditure. Mr. Lewis took
tho floor and said:
"If this money Is appropriated It
should be distinctly understood that It
Is to be expended by the director of
public safety and not by the head of tho
bureau of health. The health authori
ties have not done their duty since tho
small-pox has broken out here and they
know It. I think that councils should
know nbout some of the things that
have been done.
"The health authorities burned all the
beds and bedding In the Brace house
on Bromley avenue, In which deaths
from small-pox-have occurred, and In
which Mr. Brace and Mrs. Lewis have
been quarantined since a week ago
last Mondaj-. There was no thought of
replacing this bedding with any other,
and for three nights that man and
woman had to sleep on bare boards,
with nothing to cover them but an old
coat and a shawl. The health authori
ties made-bo effort to procure bedding
and these people would probably be
sleeping that way yet If Director
Wormser had not been appealed to di
rect. As soon ns he learned of the con
dition of affairs he saw that beds and
bedding were sent over there. That's
only an instance, gentlemen, of tho
way In which affairs are being con
