Committee Mot Saturday and Framed
Its Report but Agreed to' Withhold
It for a Month Out o Deference
to the Representatives from the
Sixth Who Are Striving to Seeuro
a Re-cauvasa of tho Ward Fif
teenth Ward Gains the Member
That Its Neighbor Loses.
Formal apportionment of the repre
sentation iti common council was nuulo
Saturday under the, provisions of the
pecond class clty charter. Tho number
of members remain at thirty-eight, but
the representation of tho Sixth and Fif
teenth wards Is chanced, tho former
losing and tho latter gaining one mem
ber. The law provides that the apportion
ment shall bo made by a committee of
three commoners and two selectmen
on the basis of resident taxables re
turned by the city usscjsors on or be
fore July 1. The whole number of resi
dent taxablc3, it Is provided shall bo
divided by 40 and the quotient shall bo
the number dotci mining tho represen
tation. Kach ward shall have ut least
one member. A ward having resident
taxables equal to this quotient plus a
three-llfths fraction of the quotient
shall bo entitled to two members. A
ward having resident taxables equal to
twice tho quotient, plus three-fifths of
the quotient shall be entitled to three
members and so on.
According to the returns of tho asses
sors, Scranton has 22,760 resident tax
ables. The basic quotient is therefore
634. Three-llfths of this is 410. To bo
entitled to two counclltncn a ward mtfst
have at least 1,100 resident taxables. To
be entitled to three counellmon the
number would have to be twice C94
plus 410 or 1,804.
The Sixth ward was found to bo six
short of the number entitling it to two
members as at present. The Fifteenth
ward Bhowcd a good growth during tho
year and was found entitled to two
members Instead of one as at present.
The apportionment committee, after
formally making the apportionment,
has no further duty in the premises
except to make a report to the com
mon council. There Is no provision In
tho law for reviewing tho report, as the
work of the committee Is only a mat
ter of simple arithmetic; neither Is
there any provision for going back of
the returns of tho assessors; In fact
there Is an Inferential prohibition
against this in the clause specifying
that tho returns on which the compila
tion shall bo based must be the returns
of July 1 or previous thereto.
Selectman Regan and Commoners
Calpin and McGrecvy, of the Sixth
ward, are protesting vigorously against
having the representation of their
ward decreased and are alleging that
Instead of showing a falling off the
number of resident taxables in their
ward should show an Increase over last
year. They are demanding that the
assessors make a new canvass of the
resident taxables of their ward and
threaten that, If it is not done, they
will go into court. Just what they
will do in court towards securing u re
vision is not stated, and members of
tho apportionment committee declare
that court has no authority to interfere
in the matter,
Tho city assessors assert that their
returns were carefully compiled and
are as correct as it is possible for such
returns to be. They have made no for
mal reply, as yet, to tho demand for a
re-canvass of the Sixth, but do not hes
itate to declare they can not see why
It should be done. They are satislicd the
returns are correct, and have sworn
to their correctness. To agree to make
a re-count would be equivalent to ad
mitting that they swore to tho cor
rectness of something they weren't sure
was correct.
Chairman Paint., of tho apportion
ment committee, declares there is no
legal or other reason for making a re
canvass of the Sixth or any other ward.
Out of deference to the Sixth ward rep
resentatives, however, the committee
decided to postpone making Us formal
report to council for a month.
The apportionment committee con
sists of Messrs. Paine, William Lewis
and Galvln, of common council, and
Messrs. demons and Ross, of select
Grand Master of the Trainmen Visits
Local Organization.
P. II. Morrisey, of Galesburg, HI.,
grand master of tho Brotherhood of
Railroad Trainmen, was in the city
yesterday, In company with A. F.
Duffy, of Blnghnmton, N. Y,, chairman
of tho brotherhood's general commit
tee on the Laekuwunna system. They
attended a mooting of Moses Taylor
lodge of tho trainmen at A. O. U. W.
hall In the afternoon, and later con
ferred' at Hotel Jermyn, where Mr,
Morrisey was stopping. They left to
gether for Blnghamton on tho midnight
Mr. Morrisey said there was nothing
of public Interest uttached to his visit.
When asked concerning the relations
between tho trainmen and tho striking
miners, Mr, Morrisey said tho miners
had us yet mado no call on the train
men for assistance of uny kind, and
until a call wus made, he, of course,
could not say what tho trainmen' would
bo likely to do.
Thero wns n story afloat to tho effect
that Mr. Morrlsey's visit was the. result
,of complaints that trainmen who huvo
been thrown idlo by tho miners' strike
aro acting as coal und Iron pollce.whlch
Is In violation of ono of their laws,
making police oillcers employed by a
railroad company Ineligible to member
ship In the organization.

Mr. J. Alfred Pennington,
Dear Sir: It gives mo great pleasure to noto the won

kindly interest of yourself nnd faculty, and assure you of
my intentions to have her continue under your tuition.
Yours truly, J. H. BISB1NQ.
"Description of Courses" in New Prospectus
Arrived in the City from Camp "Sat
urday Night After a Long
and Tedious Bide.
Tired and exhausted, after a long
and wearisome day's Journey from Get
tysburg, the Thirteenth regiment ar
rived In the city Saturday night. The
ilrst section of tho train, bearing the
commissioned oillcers and the greater
number of cqmpanlos reached tho Dela
ware and Hudson station at 10.13
o'clock, and tho other section came In
about half an hour later," with tho non
commissioned staff, a few stragglers,
and portion of the baggage.
The homeward trip was Just as mon
otonous and tiresome as the Journey
from here, Friday, July 11. It took al
most fourteen hours, despite the fact
that expectations were entertained of
tho trains reaching' hero In time for
tho men to eat supper in their own
The regiment was aroused at 4 o'clock
Saturday morning, by the bugler sound
ing tho ilrst cull, and half an hour later,
every man in camp was upon his feet,
Industriously engaged In getting his
baggage ready for tho wagons which
were to convey it to tho waiting box
cars. '
Tho passenger coaches for the Thir
teenth were scheduled to leave at 7.45
o'clock, while tho Ninth regiment of
"WUkcs-Barro was due to leave at 7
o'clock. Colonel Dougherty and his Lu
zerne warriors found their train await
ing them, when they marched down to
the siding, but when the Thirteenth
arrived, all In readiness for the day's
traveling, they had to wait forty min
utes before tho passenger train's whis
tle was heard.
Tho Philadelphia and Reading was
pursued as far as Allontown, which
was reached at 4 o'clock In tho after
noon. An exasperating wait had to be
endured here, while the train was div
ided Into two sections, and Lehigh Val
ley engines nlllxed. The latter road
wus then pursued, as far as Avoca,
where tho two sections were switched
to the Delaware and Hudson.
There was another long wait here,
and many of the men took advantage
of it, by leaving tho train and ming
ling with the big crowd of Avocans,
who were out to welcome the regiment
home. Colonel L. A. Watres and Lieu
tenant Colonel F. W. Stillwcll were
both with the first section, and when
they arrived at tho Delaware and Hud
son station the men were formed 'by
companies and inarched to the Armory,
where they deposited their equipment.
Major George Whitney, of Honesdale,
wns in charge of tho second section.
The last days of camp were quiet and
uneventful. A pleasant occurrence
marked the end of his ilrst field work
as captain, for the new commander of
Company K, Will Gould. Captain
Gould's men presented him with a sou
venir of the encampment, in the form
of a handsome silk cushion, upon which
were worked views of the historic
points of tho battlefield. Thursday
night, Major A. E. Keller duplicated
Major Frank Robling's "pink teu" of
the previous night and entertained a
number of the regiment's oflicers.
This year's camp Is universally con
ceded to be one of the most pleasant
ever spent by tho regiment, and con
sidered from every standpoint was a
very successful week. Tho general
health was excellent, the work In drill
ing und Inspection beyond expectations,
and even the weather was of a charac
ter with which not the least fault could
be discovered.
Central Labor Union Is Now Can
vassing This Matter.
Talk of tho advisability of running
labor candidates for tho legislature In
all four Lackawanna districts, occupied
a good part of yesterday's besslou of
the Central Labor union. The matter
la being thoroughly canvassed und at
each meeting It will bo discussed. Final
action in the matter will hardly bo
tuken, tho lenders say, until late In
September. Sentiment Is divided on tho
(juration, but a majority, it Is claimed,
favors the ide'a.
The street car men's case was re
ported upon and National Committee
man C. O. Pratt, of Cleveland, made an
Tho meeting adjourned at 3.30, and
tho union marched in a body to Guern
sey halt to hear Rev. Thomas B.
Payne's address on "Capital and
The question of Labor day celebration
was brought up for( discussion, and it
was decided to huvfe u parado of' tho
local unions and trades councils during
the morning. An excursion will be run
to Lake Ariel in tho afternoon.
Weiss Piles Statement Against
Alleged Assailants.
An action In trespass was Instituted
In court by 13. Weiss, of South Wash
ington avenue, Saturday, through At
torney George Horn, against Moirls
Wlnt and Samuel, H,'ry and Edward

juries upon him. Weiss asks $5,000
"Weiss alleges In the statement he
