ARE TRYING TO
ARGUMENTS HEARD IN THE
POOR BOARD OASES.
Claimants 'Murphy and Evans Put
on the Defensive by the Respond
ents' Motion to Quash the Writs
of Quo Warranto Attacks of tho
One Side and Replies of the Other.
Major Warren Contended That a
Rule for a Writ and Not a Writ
Should Have Been Granted.
Arguments In the poor board cases,
which were put over from last Monday,
were heard yesterday morning by
Judges Kdwnrds, Kelly and Newcomb.
Nearly two hours were consumed by
The cases are practically the same,
but differ somewhat In title. In the one
case, It Is tho Commonwealth at the
relation of John J. Murphy against V.
J. Dlekert. Tho other Is the Common
wealth at the relation of W. It.
Lewis, district attorney, against W.
A. Paine. The real complainant in tho
latter case is James A. Evans.
Mr. Murphy claims he was elected to
fill a vacancy In tho South ward seat
on the poor board, and Mr. Evans
claims election to the Hyde Park bor
Mr. Murphy appeared for himself
and had as associate counsel, James
J. O'Mnlley. Mr. Evans was represent
ed hy Charles E. Olver. Opposed to
them were John F. Scragg, solicitor of
the poor district; Major Everett War
ren and Joseph O'Brien.
The respondents were to have made
answer, yestetday, but they elected to
proceed on a motion to quash the writ
of quo warranto secured by the re
lators. Major Warren, who spoke for the
respondents Ilrst attacked the Murphy
writ on the ground that he could not be
a relator. In ease of this kind, such
duty, under tho law devolving exclu
sively on the district attorney.
In reply to this Mr. 6'Mnlley, con
tendejiat it is clearly established by
recejflPRcislons that In a cae where
thcKle of an ofllce is at Issue a prl
vs(Wparty having a claim on the office
can act as relator for tho common
wealth. It was next argued by Major War
ren that court should not have granted
the writ, but only a rule for a writ, so
that the respondents might have an
opportunity of being heard. It Is ad
mitted that court has discretionary
power, but the respondents should have
had the opportunity, It was contended
to argue on the propriety of granting
COURT KNOWS THE CASE.
Mr. O'Malley's leply to this was that
the court had such n thorough ac
quaintance with the case, It was in a
position to exercise the soundest dis
cretion and needed no light on the
subject from counsel.
A point which Major Warren dwelt
on at length was the fact that the
claimants hud failed to make personal
demand for the office on Messrs. Dlek
ert and Paine, having contented them
selves with making a demand of the
board to be seated.
31 r. Murphy replied to this when he
came to make his supplementary argu
ment. He contended It was immaterial
and unnecessary to make a personal
demand of the respondents, be
cause the claimants did not recognize
Messrs. Dicker! and Paine as being in
office. Speaking particularly of the
Dickert case, Mr. Murphy stated that
Mr. DIckerl's term of ofllce expired
March IS, 1S9H, and he was neither ap
pointed nor elected after that,
Judge Newcomb at this juncture
wanted to know what Dickert had to
give that Murphy could demand, and
Judge Kelly inquired In a significant
way as to whom Major Warren repre
sented. The contention that there is no poli
tical machinery still existing whereby
a. valid election can be held In
the old South Ward and Hyde
Park boroush was next raised.
Major Warren pointed out that the
ei cation of twenty-one wards, at the
incorporation of the city of Scranton,
destroyed the existence ot the old
waids as far as the possibility of con
ducting elections therein was concerned
lly way of example he pointed out that
the judge of election of a district ot
the Fifth ward of Scranton, In a muni
cipal election, could not bo considered
an election officer of old Hyde Park
A SAVING CLAUSE.
Mr. Murphy contended that there
was a saving clause in the special
act Incorporating the city 'of Scranton,
which provided explicitly that the act
should In no way Interfete with the
existence of the Scranton poor district,
Mdor Warren next argued that Mr.
Dickert had a right to hold over until
his successor was duly elected and
Mr, Murpli) admitted that It was
provided In the general law for elective
otllecis that they should hold over until
their successois woro duly elected and
qualified, but in this case there was the
distinction that Mr. Dickert was an
appointed officer, appointed for a per
iod of sixteen days. The poor district
act, it was further contended specific
ally provides that appointments shall
bo simply "to fill an unexpired term."
In the Evans case a specific reason
advanced for the quashing of the writ
was that the claimant udmlts he re
ceived votes from the third district or
the Sixth ward, which was until ro
cently a part of Lackawanna town
ship and never Included In old Hyde
Mr, Olver asserted this made no dif
ference under the decisions.
The court leserved its decision on the
motion, ir the writs are quashed It will
ho Incumbent on the claimants to pro
ceed anew or give up tho light. It
the writs are sustained the respondents
will bo called upon to make answer to
the relators' complaint? or suffer judg
ment for the claimants.

Some Opposition to Dr. Norton.
Editor of The Tribune
Sir: As much as it is to be regretted, I am
obliged to take i,ue wllli Dr. Xoiton, who ad
vocated recently in this city the teneU of Clnh
tian Science medicine us the bc-t remedy against
The subject mailer ot medicine includes a
wide range of scientific knowledge and pinttical
skill. The doctor hates drugs a.s a gobbler does
a led rag, but he forgets that the compound ac
tion of drugs and herbs are tho subjects of phar
macology and tcicology. Tiie circumstances un
der which tho numerous articles of mateiia mod.
ica become lemedial subject to therapeutics has
about as much to do with applied religion as tho
sci aping of older bark up or down when taken
as a concoction produces a omit or a purge as
the case might requiie. So much for the fiiot
Now btructure istonalated to function, whether
active or dormant, and both aio indispensable to
life and religion. There is no mistake about
that! And in tho ultimate analysis as applied
to the "LV of tho "Genesis" means nothing
without a preponderant logical correlation of
"Hell Scraper," the gicat panacea of the st"am
doclois of sixty years ago.
This settles another point.
As to the "Infinite father. Mother shining with
bououeil light": This theory of disease seems to
rcit upon physiological dUtuibance of the pioto
plasmio Inaln cells with mote or lc,s technical
adjuncts, ingiossing' a difficult eltiiunt of pertur
bation, delleion or shortcoming aided by viitue
of .1 deiiation fiom a well balanced mind. Hut it
ignores cntiiely the Johmoni.in system of medi
cine wheie "fum-Cit" and "Sciape-Augei" weie
the one-time sovcieigu lemedics. The plecyaut
diseases of long ago ouch as gout, bellyache,

specific for Inflat.i CorpulaU but are not equal

to bo decided tho question as to wheth
er or not this community will be sub

other communities In enjoying tho full

seized upon with avidity and passed
speedily from one to another until it
had become general property. News
paper offices were besieged for their
latest dispatches and many an Inquir

was that there would be no strike.
When however, authentic news was
put forth yesterday morning, that the
lower portions of the Anthracite region
were not against a strike, as It was au
thoritatively reported they were last
week, the sentiment changed, and
Scranton and her environs went to bed
last night fearful that the morrow
would bring forth a positive announce
ment that the temporary suspension
of woik was to bo prolonged into a
strike. Tho best hope for an opposite
result hinged on tho fact that a large
portion of the delegates were instruct
ed to follow John Mitchell's advice and
that he would advise them against a
ENGINEERS AND FIREMEN.
One thing which it is thought, will
have an influence in converting many
of the more thoughtful of the pro-strike
element, is the reported ultimatum of
tho stationary engineers and firemen
that 'if they go out with the miners,
the latter must not settle the strike
until the companies grant the engineers
and firemen an eight hour day for
which they recently made a strike
which was unsuccessful because the
miners would not support them.
One of the most telling blows which
the miners expect to deliver at the
companies in case of a strike is the
calling out of the engineers, firemen
and pump runners, thereby causing
great damage to the mines by flooding
and gas accumulations. If tho men do
not quit In a body at the call of the
miners the blow will bo Ineffective, for
the reason that if only a small pro
portion of them respond to the call
their places can be readily filled by
imported men, who it is said have been
already secured for such an emergency.
To add the demand of the engineers
and firemen to the numerous demands
of their own would, it is believed by
the miners, make the securing of their
own demands all the more difficult if
not positively impossible. Its a case
of being between the devil and the deep
As far as Scranton was concerned
there were no changes of moment In
the strike situation. The most im
portant local announcement of the
day was that the delegation which left
here for the Hazleton convention, yes
terday morning, had been officially can
vassed and that the division on the
question was in the proportion of three
for strike and five against.
