Poor District Accounts Pronounced
to Be All 0. K. Condition of
the Hillside Home.
. J. (Vwtello, Walter ClirUtmtts
and .Tuhii .Mort-iH, the iiudltorH for the
Sci'iililnu poor district, niiitk' their re
jiort ycstirdny to the board In which
they approve of the llirurfx conttilued
in the imntiiil report of the Hecrotary
of the board for the year ending De
cember ill, prliiCed some months ago.
This l-pport showed that the total dis
bursements for the year ending Decem
ber Ul were $101,11.11.
In the roui.se of a few general re
marks Hi" sutilltors say: "We found
the Interior of the several buildings
compilsliuv Ihe Hillside Jlomo to be re
markably clean. The inmates look
comfortable and clean ami mostly
healthy. A lack of room In some of
the wards Is very noticeable and to
this matter we would call the attention
of the board."
The auditors also report that they
have devised a new system of book
keeping for use tit the home which will.
enable the superintendent and the di
rectors to tell Instantly Just what sup
plies, etc., nre on hand at the end of
Director Fuller culled Ihe attention
of the board to the fact that both St.
Patrick's orphan asylum and .the
Home for the Friendless will agree to
take all the children whom the board
may send them providing that per
mission will be given them to indenture
them. I'nder the present system any
where from $::no to $100 a year is paid
to each of these institutions b tho
hoard. A resolution was presented and
adopted providing for execution of a
contract with both these organizations.
It was decided to ask Attorney John
F. Scragg. the boardVi solicitor, for a
written opinion as to whether or not
the board Is obliged to receive insane
patients from outside the district and
care for them at the Hillside Home.
The general opinion is that such pa
tients must be cared for, If paid for,
but at least one member of tho board
refuses to believe this until he sees It
in black and white over the solicitor's
Patrick Tieruey, of Mi Luzerne
street, a kindly faced old man whose
children will not care for him and who
is unable to do tiny hard work, was ad
mitted to the home nt his own request,
it could be seen that It was a great
.struggle for him to make the request
because of his sense of pride and the

The new repair shops which Ihe

the new car repairing xhnptt will bo
built on land adjacent to the IUooms-but-g

Improvcmenti will be made Involving
tin expenditure of between $1,5000,000,
and $2,000,000. The plans for the new
Shops are now In the hands of the of

According to the plans outlined to a
representative of The Tribune, the
company proposes to extenil its Scrnn
ton yard limits south "of the present
radius, and take In tho land occupied
by the machine shops, blacksmith
shops, stores department buildings,
plaining mill, carpenter shop, pattern
shop, moulding shop and car painting
This will mean tho clearance of nil
the present buildings located west of
Washington avenue, with the exception
of tho new round house, now In course
of completion, and the new engine

the latter has already been torn down
to make room for the additional stalls

Work has just commenced on a tem
porary addition to the present machine
shops, which will be -10x293 feet In size,
but this structure, together with all
the buildings In that locality, will be
entirely obliterated. This Will give the
company the additional yard room de
sired. A glance over tho present yard
at the present time shows the needs of
more room, as today the tracks are
covered with cabooses, engines and
cars out of service.
The shops In which the wood work

be located on the Bloomsburg division,
and will Include all tho work and pos

vision of Muster Car Builder Canlleld.
The, old shops on the easterly side of
Washington avenue, between the main
line tracks and the old steel mill site,
will also be torn down, to permit the
extension of the yard tracks.
Another feature, which will prove a.
decided Innovation, will be the eleva

of trains underneath In the yard. This
will do away entirely with the present

Herring Again Free.
Among the prisoners yesterday re
leased from the county jail because of
the eases against them having been ig
nored, was the much-arrested Max
Herring, who was arrested two months
ago on the charge of horse stealing.
Herring was In jail serving time for
looting the till of a frankfurter wag
on. A fellow prisoner was Byron Slm
rell, of Scott, who was just finishing
a year's imprisonment for stealing a
horse. At the trial, Slmrell stoutly
maintained he bought the horse of a
young man for $10 and as the animal
was stated to be not worth much more,
many who heard the trial were prone
to believe SlmreU's story. The jury,
however, thought otherwise and con
One day last March, Slmrell and
Herring were part of a gang of pris
oners who were put to work making
some repairs In the rear of the jail.
As soon as Slmrell saw Herring he
picked on him as the man from whom
he bought the horse ha was convicted
of having stolen. Slmrell was released
from jail before Herring's time-expired
and when tho latter emerged through
the Iron doors he' was arrested on a
warrant charging him with horse
stealing. It was sworn out by Slm
rell before Squire Mason, of Olyplmnt.
Herring was re-committed and his
case went before the last grand jury.
Stmrell's identification was positive,
but the evidence was not sufficient in
the minds of the jurors to effect a con
viction and the bill was ignored.
Jacob Ellman who was sent to the
penitentiary for two and a half years
for subornation of perjury on the tes
timony ot Herring was recently re
leased. Fortunately their legal feud Is
at an end for neither can ever again
be a witness In court.

Tho crowning chapter to tho little
romance of this Interesting pair was
the curious compact entered Into be
tween them while at Delaware Water
Clap, the scene of their betrothal and
marriage- so many years before, that
they sjiould turn back the pages of
