BROUGHT BY GEORGE W, JENK

Moro Flood Victims Bring Suit
Against tho City Re-Argument of
tho JenklnB-Rush Brook Company
Case Before Judges Other Court
George V. Jenkins, of West Scran
ton, who I'lnlins lo bo the duly author
ized tux collector ot the city, yesterday
began un notion lo collect $G,4it,66 back
salary from the city for a period of
Mr, Jenkins heretofore brought n suit
nnd succeeded In having the Supremo
court confirm a judgment for $1,250.
Tho present case was brought for him
yesterday by Attorneys'" Carpenter &
Plcltz, and the statement In tho case
Tho plaintiff, George W. Jenkins, claims
of the defendant, tho city of Scranton,
the sum ot llvo thousand four hundred
sixteen nnd GO-100 (U-IIG.Gti) dollars, with
interest thereon from tho times when tho
monthly Installments thereof beenmo due,
ns hereinafter sot forth; which Is Justly
duo nnd payable to tho plaintiff by tho
defendant upon tho cause ot nctlon
whereof the following I? a stntement:
The act of assembly approved March 7,
1001, entitled, "An Act for the Govern
ment of Cities of tho Second Class,"
created the department of collector of
delinquent taxes as one of the cxecuttvo
departments of cities of the second class;
nnd provided that the collector of de
linquent taxes shall be the head ot such
It alio provided that the city recorder
of existing cities of the second clas shall
appoint the collector of delinquent taxes,
without tho consent ot the select coun
cil, nnd fixed tho compensation of tho
bends of each department nt an niinunl
salary of llvo thousand dollars, to bo re
ceived out of the city treasury. "
Tho city of Scranton Is, and at tho date
of tho approval of said net of assembly,
to wit, March 7, 1001. was, n city of tho
second clasi nnd subject to tho provisions
of said act; and on the first day of April,
1P01, tho plaintiff, George W. Jenkins, was
duly appointed collector of delinquent
tnxes of said city of Scranton by James
Molr, recorder of said city, and upon
the same day, he, the said George W.
Jenkins, was sworn in nnd filed his bond
and became duly qualified ns. collector of
delinquent taxes and bend or the depart
ment of delinquent taxes of the said city
Ho thereupon signified his readiness to
fulfill hit duties as such collector nnd for
that purpose, at various times demanded
from tho persons having possession there
of, the hooks and papers necessary to
cnnblo him to perform such duties; and
ho has at all times since his said ap
pointment unto tho present, been ready
and willing to perform the duties of col
lector of delinquent taxes nf the said city
of Scranton. And although he hns never
been removed from said ofllce, this said
city of Scranton, by Its recorder and
other officers, has refused, and still re
fuses, to permit him to perform his du
ties as collector of delinquent taxes of
said city, or to have the books nnd
papers necessary fur such purpose.
Tho said plaintiff further shows that
on August 7, 1001, he brought suit In the
court of common plena of Lackawanna
county for his salary as collector of de
linquent taxes for the three months of
April, May nnd June, 1901, and recovered
Judgment for the sum of $1,2.'0, and ho
avers that no part of his salary hns been
paid, though often demanded, and thcro
is now due hint, in addition to the sum
for which judgment has been recovered,
as aforesaid, the further sum ot five
thousand four hundred sixteen and GA-1C0
($.", 4tfi.l) dollars being his salary for thir
teen months, from July 1, 1901, to August
1, 1902, together with Interest on the sev
eral monthly Installments from the time
they respectively became due, to recover
which this suit Is brought.
Rehearing in Jenlcin Case,
Before Judges Edwards and Kelly
there was a reargument yesterday In
tho case of John H. Jenkins against the
Rush Brook Coal company, Attorney
II, M. Hannah appearing for tho plain
tiff nnd Attorneys S. B. Price and A.
B. Ttlckctts for the defence.
John S. Jenkins sued the Hush Brook
Coal company for salary nnd money
loaned. The case was referred to a
referee who reported thereon. Ex
ceptions were filed to tho report of tho
referee and Judge Edwards handed
down an opinion in the mutter a week
ago last Monday. Now both parties
have filed exceptions to the opinion of
Judge Edwards and nsk that tho case
be referred to the referee for consider
ation. Judge Edwards gave judgment
In favor of tho plnlntlff for the sum of
J10,1GU5, being $7,402.02, with Interest
from Aug. 11, 1902.
The plaintiff was president, of the
Rush Brook Coal company. Ho sued to
recover for his services and money
loaned, in all to the amount of over
$22,000. The plaintiff rendered a bill
containing 157 Items, Some were with
drawn nnd the referee dlsnllowed
others. Tho referee allowed $",-106.62.
Against this and in favor of tho de
fendant tho referee allowed a set-off
amounting to $22,050. The plaintiff's
claim was wiped out and a balance of
$22,80.Cl was left in favor of the de
fendant, Tho plaintiff's principal ex
ception was to the defendant's set-off
The referee found that this was tho
value of certain stocks which Dr. J. N.
Rico gave the plaintiff for his services
In Inducing E. A. Corny, who owned 'tha
majority of tho Rush Brook Coal com
pany's stock, to agree to lease tho
property to Dr. Rico. Tho referee found
thnt the plnlntlff, while ostensibly
working In the Interest of the Rush
Brook Coal company, of which ho was
president nnd manager, but a minority
btock holder, accepted $22,050 from tho
purchaser us the price of obtaining bet
ter terms of salo, It wuh held by the
lefereo that tho amount should right
fully belong to tho company and so
placed It ns a set-off against the plain
Tho argument yesterday was for the
purpoee of convincing the court that it
ought to send tho case bar', to the
And Still They Come.
Mrs, Cella Flynn yesterday began an
action against the Wllkes-Barre and
Scranton Railway company, the Cen
tral Railroad of New Jersey and the
Scrunton Sleel company to recover
A suit was also begun by John A.
Murray against tho tunic defendants
to recover $5,000. The suits nre the out
growth of tho floods on the South
Scrunton Hats. The plulntlffs are rep
resented by Attorney A. A. Chase.

Is Charged with Shooting Michael

Frank Decker, a special ofllcer em
ployed by the' Temple Iron company at
tluj Edgerton colliery at Jormyn, hns
furnished $2,000 bnll before Judge Kelly
to answer a charge of being Implicated
in tho shooting last Monday night at

man Michael Connolly and Forest
Crossman were both shot and received
injuries which necessitated the ampu
tating of one of Crossman's legs nnd
cost Connolly the sight of his right

dale. Crossman, who hnjl a full view
of the man who shot him, claims that

reward for the apprehension of the
guilty pai ties.
