Tho Home for the Friendless is out of
debt! This statement should cause uni
versal rejoicing In Scranton, for the In
cubus of that everlasting debt has rung
In the ears of the public like a knell
and hung over the hearts of the man
agers like a pall for several years. The
last mortgages of $17,000 were cancelled
yesterday, with no sound of the tocsin
and no jubilation, but none the less, the
Intense relief which Is experienced by
those most Interested cannot but be
echoed by thousands who have loved
and aided and supported this noble in
stitution through the past.
The fact that the debt Is raised will
not lessen public responsibility, as re
gards the support of the home. The
family numbers 84, the largest .since the
Institution was established, and as the
cost of living has greatly Increased, the
actual running expenses are necessar
The advantage of having to pay no
Interest on mortgages will, however, be
much appreciated. The board of con
trol has enacted the role of Providence
in this case, having, after some delay,
purchased the old home plot on Adams
avenue for J20.000. The final payment
of $19,000 was made yesterday, enabling
the president of the home, Mrs. W. D.
Kennedy, to cancel the mortgages
against both properties.
It will be remembered that when tho
new building was erected on the lots
given by tho late John B. Smith, it was
expected that the old plot would bo
sold Immediately. Negotiations then
under way fell through nnd, to the dis
may of the board, the property has re
mained on hand five years.
Mortgages to the amount of $33,000
were placed on tho two properties, and
It has been a long and hard struggle
to reduce the amount to the sum of
$17,000, which was yesterday paid.
Through the geneiosity of public-spirited
citizens nnd friends, $10,000 had
been previously raised.
A few weeks ago the school board de
cided to buy the old home on Adams
avenue, where the Manual Training
school, the magnificent gift of Mrs. W.
T. Smith, will be established. It was
thought" then that the entire amount
would not be paid for some time, but
the sale of bonds has made It possible
to transfer tho full sum of $20,000, and
as a result the beautiful Home for tho
Friendless, which cost $65,000, now
stands free from debt.
All the same, the flour barrel Is empty
up there, and It takes a lot of bread to
keep a family of eighty-four from going

The Injunction proceedings Instituted
by the Scranton Ous nnd Water com

Wlin the case was before Judge Kelly
Monday, the question t issue 'was
whether or not tho city could compel
tho company to remove the main nt
its own expense. The compnny was
not ready to proceed with an argument
of the question and adjournment was
made until yesterday morning.
At the resumption of the hearing yes
terday, the company 'made the conten
tion that an examination of the piem
Iscs, through Its engineers, showed
that both the sower and the water
main were on private property and not
on a public street, In consequence of
which, it was clAimod by the company,
tho city could not claim right of way
for Its sower over the company'3 water
Tho representation was made by tho
company that the lots abutting on
Front street were laid out by the
Lackawanna Iron and Coal company:
that the latter company reserved the
right to change street lines on its plot
uny time it saw fit, and that recently
the company, by extending tho length
of Its plotted lots from 158 to 160 feet,
extended the fence line on Front street,
so that It Included the portion of tho
street on which the sewer und water
main are located.
Reserving tho question as to whether
or not this change of street line was
made subsequent to the adoption of tho
course for the sewer, Judge Kelly ad
journed the hearing until Friday
morning, to give the engineers of the
company and the city, and a disinter
ested .engineer, George E. Stevenson,
opportunity to investigate and make
report .on the present location of tho
Ex-Judge 33. N. Wlllard and I. II.
Burns repiescntl-d the company. City
Solicitor George M. Watson represented
According to the estimate of Director
of Public Works Roche, the cost of
moving the water main, to make way
for the sower, would be $40. The law
yers engaged In the case do not usually
apepar in court for less than that much
per day each, and next Friday will
make the fourth day for them to ap
pear. The case Is to establish a precedent,
and on this account is being vigorously
contested. The city contends that the
company must move its water mains
nt its own expense, any time a sewer
or like municipal Improvement, is
blocked by It. The company, without
admitting that the sewer has the right
of way, stands out against being com
pelled to pay tho expense of clearing
the way for the sewer.

Poor Directors in Court.
The poor directors of Jenkins town
ship, Plttston borough and Plttston
township allege, in a declaration nied
some time ago, that John D. Jones and
the Fidelity and Deposit company, of
Maryland, are liable to the poor district
for several thousands of dollars, said to
have been embezzled by Jones, who
was a tax collector In Taylor borough
The Fidelity and Deposit company
was on Jones' bond for $40,000, and the
poor directors claim they come In
under this bond and accordingly on
June 2 the poor district entered judg
ment against Jones and the Fidelity
and Deposit company, of Maryland, on
this bond for $40,000.
Yesterday the company petitioned tho
court to have this judgment opened
nnd allowed to defend, setting forth
a denial of liability and alleging that
the judgment was unauthorized and un
warranted. Judge Neweomb allowed the defend
ant company a rule to show cause why
the judgment should not be opened, as
asked for, and made It teturnable to
argument court In October. Attorney
C. F, Bohan, of WIIkes-Barre, uppeurs
for the poor directors, and Attorney
Robert J. Murray for the Fidelity and
Deposit company, of Maryland.

Thee," was sung by Miss Mary Nlland.
In the absence of Rev. P. J. McMunus,
the pastor ot St. Paul's, Rev. J. A. Mof
fltt preached the sermon.
He took his text from Job, and said,
In part: o
It Is not my Intention to disturb tho
silent soriow nnd grief of tho sisters of
tho deceased. My words cannot sootho
their gilcf. Tho only solace to their sor
iow can be found In fervent, holy prayer.
Only through tho sraco of God can their
wounded hearts bo lclloved from tho
weight of suffering. "Come unto mo all
yc that aio heavy laden," are the' words
of tho divine Lord, and If tho words ot
God cannot glvo consolation, surely tho
words of man are weak and vain. In
addressing those words to his sorrowing
relatives I know I am riot speaking to
deaf cars. I know I nm speaking to
tbosa whoso faith Is well founded; whose
faith Is stronger than death. No human
wouls can take away fiom their heart3
the pain of those who havo lost a brother
whom they loved so well. Tlnougliout all
his sickness, throughout nil his life their
love for their only brother hns always
been bhown In many ways.
Tho long nightly vigils In tho sick bed
chamber, the constant wutchlng and care
of tho devoted sisters all testified to their
tender affection for him who has now
gone away from their home. Hut thoy
aio well gioundcd In faith, well instruct
ed in God's doctrine, and this will give
them an abiding strength to bear their
It there Is any place outside tho church
whoic tho faith of man is strencthened
it Is In tho bed chamber of the sick. And
there suffering In his last and fatal ill
ness he gave ovidenco of his faith and
ti list In tho goodness nnd mercy of God.
There ho showed himself strong In faith,
strong In hope, sustained and soothed by
the Micinments of bis faith, with child
like trust ho called upon God to strength
en him for tho journey he was to mako
alone. Tho prayeis of tho sisters of tho
deceased, their frequent communions nnd
religious exei rises will bo n perpetual
memorial nt God's altar to the memory
of their dead brother. This Is tho spliit
of Holy Church, the spliit of true faith.
Then let us all join with tho bereaved
lelatlves to pray fervently for his soul.
Ktcrnnl rest grant him, O Lord, and let
perpetual light shine upon him.
Numerous floral tributes testified In
a measure to the general esteem and
respect in which the deceased was held.
A floral pen and pencil and furled
scroll were sent bv his fellow workers
on the Truth. After the benediction,
the remains were removed to tho
Cathedral cemetery und there enterred.
The pall-bearers were: P. A. Barrett,

PASSED WORTHLESS CHECKS.
"Dr. Ward' Buncoed Furrier Out of
The police have been notified that
a man giving his name ns Dr. J. E.
Ward, claiming to come from Syracuse,
had passed u bogus check on a central
city furrier, from whom he purchased
a $14 automobile cloak.
, Last week Ward came to this city
and tried to secure a room in the Paull
building. He offered a check for $33 In
payment, to R. P. Hamilton with whom
he was negotiating for the room. The
check was signed by W. E. Whitney, of
Corning, N. Y.
Communication with the latter place
revealed the fact that the check was
a forgery, and the room was refused.
Ward then visited the furrier's place
and purchased the cloak. The mer
chant had his own suspicions about
the check, and In making change for
Ward gave him a check for $21, dated
ahead four days, In order that he could
stop payment. If the check wns dis
