That Very Interesting Municipality,
Old Forge Township, Is In Court
Agntn In a Very Interesting Case.
Attack on Common Councilman
John McHalo's Naturalization
Papers Discloses Some Readable
Testimony Divorced After Being
Deserted Thirty-two Years.
An unusually huge number of cases
of general Interest were, heard, yester
day, by Judges Kdwnrds, Kelly und
N'eweomb In argument court.
One of them came from that un
usually Interesting municipality, Old
Forgo township, of which The Tribune
has had occasion to write about sev
eral time.. In 1S0V, when Old forge
borough was carved out of Old Forge
township, a I0i) acre tract ot laud
owned by the Delaware, Lackawanna
& Western company and populated by
live families, was left to constitute
Old Forgo township. The township
recently went Into court to secme an
apportionment of the funds In what
was the Old Forge township school dis
trict. Attorney K. A. Thayer, as ex
aminer, found that the little town
ship's ptff l.ita share of the school
funds was $,000. Tho Old Forge bo
rough school district and the Old Forge
Tax Payers asoclatlon of which Wil
liam Repp is the moving spirit, object
ed to the examiner's (hidings and the
exceptions caine up for a heaTing yes
terday afternoon.
II. M. Hannah, OT.iien & Martin
and J. K. Watklns for the exceptants
argued that the township school dis
trict was not entitled to any share In
the funds as It was a legal impossibil
ity as a school district. There are only
seven voters nnd six children of school
age in the .whole municipality It was
shown, and Its people are not main
taining what would legally be con
templated us the machinery of a school
district. A school district, under the
law, It was argued, is simply an agent
of the state in tjie distribution of a
charity. The township sends its six
children to schools In adjoining muni
cipalities at a total expense of $30 a
year. To give it $3,000 uf the state's
charity would be, it was considered a
Major Everltt Warren,- replying for
the township, which is owned by tho
Delaware, Lackawanna & Western
compnay. argued that it made no dif
ference how great or how small was
the number of people in the dlstrli't;
the funds from which It was seeking
its share and the only question for the
court was as to whether or not tho
examiner had made a. fair anil equit
able appartionment, and this the other
side did not contest. The township.

The attack on the naturalization
papers of Common Councilman John
McHale, of tho Eighteenth ward was
aired at length, by George D. Taylor,
representing AVUliam Rush, Mr. Mc
Hnle's defeated opponent, and Joseph
O'Hrlen, representing Mr. McHale.
McHale was naturalized in this coun
try In 1SS.". He swore be arrived In
this country August. L'l, 1876. when he
was under eighteen years of age. The
complainants aver that he was over
eighteen when he arrived hero and
consequently that his n;iLurul:'.;itloii
papers being hypothecated on fraud
should be cancelled.
Mr. McHale staled in his examina
tion that he was born in Ireland In
1837, came to this country In 1876, re
mained in Scranton two years, went to
Pittsburg and stayed there until lS8i,
he went to England and was married,
returning to Scranton a month later,
hla wife following him In ISSf.
To discredit Mr. McHnle's story, Mr.
Taylor quoted tho testimony of James
Hums, a resident of the Eichtei'iith
ward, who averred that he met Mcl-Inlo
in 1SS3 and that McHale told him he
had been In the country only two weeks.
The meeting took place in or near a
freight car on the Bloom division of tho
Lackawanna, near the alley connecting
Railroad avenue and Meridian street.
It was at 12 o'clock at night, and Hums
with two companions, one of them a
woman, were having a jollification In
tho car. McHale happened along, and
In the course of a conversation with
Burns said: "I am a greenhorn and
have been In the country only a couple
of weeks,"
'Squire John P. Kelly, another wit
ness whom Mr. Taylor quoted, averred
tlmt he saw McHale for tho first time
twenty-one yenrs ago. He looked then
as if he was a "greenhorn," and peemed
to be as old, as he Is now. McHale was
selling books, tho 'squire testified, and
when nsked on cross-examination bv
Mr, O'Hrlen what book It was. the
'squire replied that to tho best of his
memory It was "The Assassination of
President Ilnyes," or something like
On the cross-examination of McHale,
Mr. Taylor brought out that ho was
selling bookB when he was In Pitts
burg, and that he spent several years
canvassing the city and surrounding
towns. The only surrounding town he
could remember having canvassed was
In reply to Mr. Taylor, Mr. O'Hrlen
argued that the only witness who gave
any testimony bearing directly on the
case was Hums, und tho depositions
would show, Mr. O'Hrlen said, that
Hums was not worthy of belief,

Arguments Were heard on seven de
murrers to suits In assumpsit brought
to collect paving assessments. The de
murrers were based on tho decision of
the Supreme court In tho SturgcF. case,
In which It was held that a paving as
set.stnent Is a tax nnd not, collectable
by assumpsit. The City of Carhondalo
was plaintiff In three of the cases, the
defendants being A. Olllls, Thomas
O'Oonnell and If. R. Jntlwln. The de
fendants In the Scranton caseH are
West Lackawanna avenue property
holders, Roger McOownn, George Ivct
low, John Wuench nnd II. A. Coyne.

wore Irregularly filed, am Hi which the
city sought to recover In assumpsit un
der. I he act of 18811. In the Sturges case
tho Supreme court declared that the
act of 18S9 does not give this authority.
Attorneys T. P. Duffy and C. C'omegys
represented the demurrers. Cltv So
licitors Watson and Stunrt argued
against them.
Tho case of the commonwealth against
Michael Kosh, In which the defense Is
seeking a new trial on the ground that
the only witness for the prosecution,
Frank Jones, Is not veracious", was sub
mitted on the depositions.
The rule for u new trial In the case
of the City of Scranton against Martin
Flaherty was discharged. This Is the
case In which tho plaintiff secured pay
as police officer for the time he was
under suspension and the period elaps

and councils' concurrence In the dis
missal. Other cases were dealt with

Dumb Rabies Are Responsible for a
Damage Suit.
An Interesting hearing is promised for
tomorrow night at Aldermun Knsson's
olllce. The plaintiff is Drayman John
Farrell and tho defendant, Dr. II. A.
Paget, veterinarian.
One week ago Tuesday, A. Battalllo
brought a dog to Dr. Paget to have It
examined, It being suspected tho ani
mal was suffering from dumb rabies.
Tho following day, Mr. Farrell, with n

ied by Dr. Jacob Ilelmer, veterinarian,
waited on Dr. Paget and demanded the
dog. Dr. Paget refused to give It up.
A few days later Dr. Paget killed tho
dog, being satisfied it was allllcted with
rabies. Mr. Farrell now sues for the
value of tho dog.
Dr. Paget will offer In evidence tesll
many by Superintendent Allen of the
bureau of health that he was ofllclally
entrusted with tho care of suspected
dogs, and also a certlllcato from Dr.
Leonard Plersou, veterinarian of the
state llvo stock board, corroborating
his diagnosis, the carcass of the dead
animal having been sent to him for
Inspection. '

Court Decides That Sheriff Schndt Is
Entitled to the Maximum of Twen-
ty-flve Cents a Head Per Day Cost
of Food Is Now so High, the Court
Says, the Time Is Not Appropriate
for Decreasing the Sheriff's Allow-
anco Below That Which His Pre-
decessors Received.
Sheriff C. H. Schndt Is to continue to
receive twcnty-ilvc cents a head Per
day for feeding prlsonets. An order to
that effect was handed down yesterday
by Judge Newcomb.
Tho count v conitntH'doiiers hnrl Ik en
llxlng the compensation of the sheriff!
for feeding prisoners, and at the begin
ning of the present year they discussed
a proposition of the county controller to
decrease the amount. Thereupon, tho
sheriff's attorneys, O'Hrlen & Murtln, j -7S
proceeded to show that the county jj
commissioners had no jurisdiction in I .m
the matter: that it. rested entirely with' '
the judges and that at till events tlio 4
rate was none too hlsh.
The attorneys for the commissioners ,
and county' controller. County Solicitor rjg
H. L. Taylor and ex-Judge J. W. Car-' vj
penter, did not contend against tltcj;
claim that the commissioners had no fs
power to fix the compensation, but bent
their endeavors in an effort to show
that 25 cents was loo much of tin allow
ance. Tho court rules that If 25 cents was
a fair amount before It surely is now,
when all food supplies are unusually
high. The order, written for the court
by Judge Xewcomb, is as follows:
Thin 'n an application by the Miorifr undnr the
act of iicmtily of Aptil 11, lb,";, I'. 1,. :ill, Me
llon -1, for an order fixing the amount to bo al

-o his custody.
The act was pasted for all the counties of the
stale, excepting Alleidietiy nnd Philadelphia. It
has been tiipctacdod in several other counties by
later lesNIallon; but i.i In foice In this county,
Although e cannot find that any order agreeab.y
to Its piovlslons liai been made heretofore.
It wits concidcd at th; aigumcnt that the
amount heretofore paid to the several sheriffs of

and that it has never been 1cm thin He
Him of twenty-live cenU per day for cadi
prKoner. 'Ihat is Iho maximum an.oant ulikli
the couit may allow under the statute itfcrrel I".
I'lidoubtcdly at the. time this act was passed,
the expetr-e of boardintr prisoner uas con-'id-erably
les than it is now. At that time the .sup
ply and cost of pro;ions were not controlled by
unnatural and artificial cuditions.
Ih'o application has been pending' slnre the he
(tinnine; of the year, ami in the meuitinio on
(idct.ihle testimony has been taken on th" part
of the sheriff, county cominissloneis and ion
(roller. The e.d.lence as to tlis coin il cost of
feeding the prisoners is oonfliilliiT. In view ef
the lluMiie that has hetcloforc been paid to the
din iff, as well as to his scleral prinlcve-Mirs In
