ARE AGAINST THE
The Regulars Call the Attention of
the Court to What They Relieve
Is a Great Evil.
The ronstnbles of the county have de
cided to try and do away with tho In
justices that frequently follow In the
wnko of the appointment of deputy con
stables, nnd yesterday their attorney,
John 11. Jones, Informally called the
attention of tho judges of the court to
resolutions recently passed by the con-
As tho resolutions were not part of
any court matter, nothing wns done
with reference to them. They' follow:
To the Honorable the Judged of the Court of
Quarter Selons of tho Peace of Lackawanna
The Constable' nvsoclatlon of Lackawanna
county respectfully informs jour honors that thl
organization In regular meeting assembled, pascl
the following resolution, nnd humbly pray that
the same may bp concurred in by jour honorable
Whereas, A number of the deputy-constables
recently appointed by some of the constables of
JMir county, which appointment received the ap
probation of our honor under the provisions of
Sections IIS mid III of the act of awcmlilv, ap
proied April 16, 1S.1I. which provide (Sec. jr.)
that: "No deputy shall be appointed bj any eon
stable, cither by general or partial deputation,
without the approbation of the court of quarter
session of the proper county first had un 1 ob
tained, except the same be made specially, In
some civil suit or proceeding, at the request and
risk of the plaintiff or his agent," and (Sec. 114):
"In the event of the death, inibllity or refusal
to act of his deputy, the constable of any town
ship' may, with the approbation of any one of
the judges of the court of quarter eslons rf the
same county, appoint another deputy, with full
authority to act ns such until the next regular
soslon3 of such court, nnd, for the acts of such
deputy, the constable and bin suietiia shall be
liable as in other cases; and in eeiy such rise,
the constables shall file a written eonv of such
deputation in the office of the clerk of Ihe court
of quarter sessions of cich counlv," are non
residents of the ward or district where tho con
stables so appointing, reside.
It frequently happens that a constable appoints
a deputy who resides five or ten miles from the
appointing constable, and in another municipal
ity altogether. It al-o frequently happens that
one constable has several deputies scattered over
the county, where the necessities of the case do
not require the appointment of more than one
deputy In his own ward. For instance, .i man
who seeks to ho deputized by a constable in
Scranton or C.irbond.ilo, or so far a this illus
tration i conccrncil the location may be extend
ed to any part of our county, goes to the regular
constable of hi waul, who already ha a faithful
deputy, and request euch constable to appoint
him his deputy. The constable upon conferring
Willi his bondsmen, loncludc that the applicant
is not a suitable person to lie trusted with the
dulies of such appointment, or perhaps the con
stable concludes that another deputy is unneces
sary in his ward or dUiict, and thus he refuse.
to make the appointment; whereupon the disap
pointed applicant goes to a remote part of the
county, and for a consideration purchases the
deputation, petition the court, and jour honors
not knowing these circumstance., appoint him a
deputy-i oiistnble, and he thus lecone a full
fledged deputy, and returns to his ward and snaps
nls linger in defiance of the regular constable
and proceed at once to deprive the constable
and his regular deputy of the busines of the
ward in which the constable was elected and
to which they arc justly entitled.
It i true that it is the fault of some of our
constalile that makes th's practice possible, but
we are glad to say they are but few. The
great majoilty of the constables throughout our
county deprecate such a practice, nnd are looking
for a remedy. We believe that the remedy Iks
with tho court in requiring that a person seeking
the appointment of doputj -constable should be a
resident of the ward or distiict of the constable
deputizing him, and that this should appear In
his sworn petition. The pioision of the law In
this helialf were o!ioulv intended as we arc
informed by our eounv.'! to equalise the business
of the constables; to secure to them at lra-t
the business of the waul in which they vide
elected, and lo enable the court to appoint depu
ties whenever nriclty lequired il.
The appointment of a deputy-constable, wp
aie .uhl-ed, rets upon puhl'c neec,lty. If tho
coii't-ilile of the waid can attend to all the
legil business of his wind, no deputy is necc--sny.
If lie cannot, then public nccc-.-lty requiies
that a depuiy be appointed. It srems to us tint
public neio-llj does not lequiic the appointment
by a constable of .sciamon of a deputy le-hling
ill Caiboiidil", oi tin' appointment of a deputy
residing in Suunton, lij a constable ot Caibon
dile, or the appointment by a coiUablo of Mos

In home of our wauls thric aic .1 miuilur of

of such iKpulles whoe einlv object in h.'Ing ap

Corser. She and Frederick stayed In
the sitting loom and on a lounge lu
this apartment laj "Jim" who was
very much intoxicated. About 2 o'clock
or thereabouts she heard a knock at
the door and thinking it was Knott
and the doctor, picked up a lighted lamp
and went to the door to let them In.
She stepped out of the sitting l-oom
into a small hull and from there Into
the main hall. When she opened the
front door a man. whom she Identified
as Argentls, bounced lu and pushed
her back. Another man, who she says
she did not see plainly was,, with him
but remained behind Argentls. The
latter pushed her back until she wns
liibltle the second hall, telling her not
to bo frightened, she screamed for help
and tried to shut tho door of the

an agent of the Municipal league, who
Is charged with tho false Impersonation
of an ofllcer, and carrying concealed

Bonn that he bought four horns for
members of the band, but that the band
broke un before he received his pay.

fused to give up his and was conse
The defense was that the horns were
purchased with the funds of the band,
and that when the band ceased to exist,

right to the Instrument as any one else

country. Mr. Wooler came to Scranton
a little over eight years ago to take
the solo tenor position at Elm Park
church, and shortly afterwards he
opened a vocal studio. He has earned
the reputation of being a most con
scientious and painstaking teacher, who
brings about the best results In a com
paratively short time. Among his
pupils are some of the best singers In
Scranton, as well as several vocal
teachers who are receiving special In
struction. Mr. Wooler, In addition to his marked
ability as a vocal soloist and teacher,
Is broadly cultivated In other branches
of music, having cornpleted the studies
of Harmony, Counterpoint, Canon,
Fugue, Form and Composition under
the eminent theorist. Dr. Clarke.
Mr. Wooler's latest songs and piano
pieces are rapidly gaining for him nn
international reputation as a composer
of high-grade music. His principal
teachers were Mr. Robert Bradley,
Bradford, Yorkshire, England; Mr.
William Courtney, New York. Mr.
Wooler Is a graduate In Harmony
(1897), Counterpoint and Musical Com
position US99) under Dr. Hugh A.
Clarke, University of Pennsylvania.
Mr. Wooler takes great care in the
cultivation of proper breathing, tone,
development, evenness throughout the
entire compass of the voice, enuncia
tion, artistic singing and the redition
of solos. Tho two scholarships are as
One full year's course In vocal In
struction (private lessons), forty weeks,
two lessons per week, valued at $80;
one full year's course In vocal Instruc
tion (private lessons), one lesson per
week, valued at ?45.
These latest scholarships well round
out the incentives to ambitious young
people to enter this year's Educational
Contest. Nearly 'every phase of study
is included. In music there are special
attractions, no less than nine scholar
ships In various musical Institutions
in Scranton being on the list; there are
two universities represented, nine pre
paratory schools of high grade, one
military .academy, five in local busi
ness colleges, one In art, and it is pos
sible that the list Is not yet complete.
How any young person can hesitate
to take advantage of these offers and
work for his or her own advancement
in higher education is Incomprehensible.
All that Is required Is that the young
person who wishes to win one of these
scholarships must work for us during
the coming summer; devoting their
spare time to helping themselves
through helping us. The full rules and
particulars are printed dally on the
fourth page of The Tribune.
Any one may enter the contest at
any time. All letters of Inquiry and
applications for entry should be ad
dresed to "Contest Editor," Scranton
