!'. S. OARKKIt,
IT IS THE BEST
THING FOR ALL
SOME VIEWS ON NO SETTLE
MENT "OUT or COURT."
If the Press Can Be Taken to Be a
Reflector of Public Opinion There
Is Now No Regret at the Breaking
Off of tho Negotiations for on
Amicable Settlement of tho Mlno
Strike Operators Blundered but
Would Make a Bigger Blunder Not
to Correct It.
'i'oiluy tho initio strike commissioner!;
will urrlvo here and take up tho work
they loft oft ten days ago when a re
cess was taken for the purpose of giv
ing tho parties to the controversy op
portunity to effect tin amicable sottle
j'nonL of "nearly nil, If not all" the
matters In dispute.
Bishop Hpaldlnff Is expected to ar
rive this mornlnpr. IIo will continue
to be it attest of IJIshop Hoban during
the progress or the hearings. Judge
Gray, Colonel Wright and General
Wilson will probably come In the early
evening. Commissioners Clark. Par
ker and Watklns are In the city. Mr.
Clark's wife has come on from Cedar
IJnplds to visit him.
The commissioners will have a con
ference at Hotel .Termyn tonight to
hear from Messrs. Clark, Parker and
AVatklns, tho sub-committee appoint
ed to remain here to represent the
commission ns conciliators In the
Resume Hearings Tomorrow.
The hearings are scheduled to be re
sumed at 10 o'clock tomorrow morn
ing In the superior court room. No
tlellnlte detnlls ns to tho programme
to be followed have come to the sur
face, but It Is certain that tho parties
In Interest will renew the work in
hand with an expectation of no fur
ther halts for possible settlement "out
of court," and a determination to
thoroughly thresh out every question
involved in the controversy.
The breaking off of the peace nego
tiations seems to give general satis
faction to tho public if the newspapers
can be taken to be reflectors of public
"It is best for all that the president's
strike commission proceed as It start
ed and complete tho work for which
it was created. There were many
thoughtful citizens who preferred to
have the whole subject thoroughly
considered by the tribunal acting un
der the president's appointment. It
was a mistake from the public point
of view to attempt to settle the strike
'out of court.' Tho commission should
proceed with its inquiry. The com
mission exists for the purpose of set
tling the whole matter."
The above Is a composite expression
of editorials of leading papers of the
largo cities. At first there wore some
papers expressing regret at the fail
ure of tho negotiations but such ex
pressions are no longer heard. Every
body, it seems, is quite pleased now
that peace negotiations were broken
The Possible Exception.
If there is a smgle exception to this
rule, as there is said to bo to every
rule, that exception Is probably tho
miners' representatives. Hud the hear
ings ended with the adjournment ten
days ago, the minors would be in a
most favorable light before the public.
Their story of the case as told by Presi
dent Mitchell would stand without
refutation, or with only such refuta
tion as came from, the declaratory
"questions" of the coal companies'
counsel in their cross-examination, and
together with this advantage they
would obtain in all likelihood, in tho
matter of concessions, as much as tho
commission will allow them.
I5ut, be that as it may, tho recess did
no harm nnd possibly will result in
much good to tho miners. Tho commis
sion can not well give them less than
the operators offered in the tentative
proposition for amicable settlement.
The miners know they are going to get
something. This relieves them from
concern on the score of their possibly
being "non-suited." The operators havo
admitted liability. Now the only con
cern of the miners Is how much better
will they fare tit the hands of the com
missioners than if tho peace proposition
had not been withdrawn.
While It Is very generally conceded
the coal companies mado a false move
In making or acquiescing In the propo
sition for a settlement "out of court,"
there Is no one of their own number
heard saying it was not the part of
wisdom for them to coincide with the
views of the independent operators as
evnrpssed In thf Rtntpment rnn.l n'
Tuesday's conference in New York.
What It Would Mean.
To settle with the miners "out of
court," through President Mitchell of
tho United Mine Workers, would have
been to recognize the United Mlno
Workers' union as directly and effectu
ally as If they dealt with Mr. Mitchell
In his official capacity Instead of tho
capacity In which he would ostensibly
be acting representative of tho miners.
Recognition or tho union- Is tho one
thing above all others tho operators
want to avoid. They ran possibly avoid
It, or at all events avert It for n time,
by having tho commission decide he.
twren them and their employes. How
recognition and something more than
Indirect recognition could bo averted
If ti settlement wns effected through
Presidents Raer, Truesdale, Olypnant,
Fowler, et nl op the one side, and
Presidents Mitchell, Nlcholls, Duffy,
Fahy et al. on the other side has pot
as yet been explained.
What the commission will have to
say on the matter of the failure of tho
recess to accomplish its purpose will ho
attentively listened to, It Is Bafe to
say. As far as the commission Is con
corned, the record clears It of any re
sponsibility for the ten dnys' loss of
time, for tho record shows tho recess
was granted for tho solo purpose of
saving time. If the parties to the con-

THE JENKINS CASE.
Hearing Conducted Yesterday by
Referee M. W. Lowry In tho
Office of City Solicitor.
M. W. Lowry, sitting as referee In
the case of George W. Jenkins against
tho city of Scranton to recover salary
as delinquent tax collector up to and
including July of this year, conducted
a hearing yesterday afternoon in City
Solicitor Watson's ofllco.
It will bo remembered that Mr. Jen
kins sued for three months salary orig
inally and that tho Supreme court sus
tained his contention and awarded
lllm a verdict for the amount asked.
IIo is now suing to recover for the
thirteen months beginning July 1, 1001,
and ending July 31, 1002, alleging us
he does that lie was not formally re
moved until the latter date. At yes
terday's hearing ho was represented
by Former Judge J. W. Carpenter,
while City Solicitor Watson looked af
ter tho city's Interests.
Mr. Jenkins was sworn and testified
that during the thirteen, months for
which ho is suing ho was never for
mally removed from ofllco either by
word of mouth or by letter. Former
Recorder James Molr took the stand
and testified that acting under tho
powers invested In him as recorder
lie appointed Mr. Jenkins as delin
quent tax collector on April 1, 1001.
The hearing will be continued this
Mr. Jenkins has never performed
tho duties of delinquent tax collector,
these having been performed since
Scranton became a city of tho second
class by the city treasurer. The or
dinance providing for a. re-organization
of the city government provided
for a consolidation of the office of city
treasurer and delinquent tax collector,
but Recorder Molr ignored this and
appointed Mr. Jenkins. The city holds
that the formal appointment of for
mer City Treasurer Robinson ns delin
quent tax collector by Recorder Con
neU constituted a removal ofJenk!ns
tinder tho generally accepted principle
that the appointment and qualification
of a successor to a man in office ren
ders his title to the ofllco void.

Vordlct of Not Guilty Taken In Ono

er of tho Two Bribery Cases
Against E. J. Maloney Nol Pros,
in tho Caso of Obstructing Justice
in Which S. E. Waylantl Was De

Bo Nol Prosscd.
In quarter sessions court yestor
duy, an end was brought to the two
cases In which 13. J. Muloney wits
charged with bribery and the case In
which S. E. Wnyland wns charged with
obstructing justice. Today will prob
ably see an ending also of the caso In
which Simon Thomas Is charged with
AVlth the ending of these four cases
will end the prosecutions In tho big
scandal connected with tho curly at
tempt at passing tho Lackawanna Tel
Maloney was lobbyist for the rival
company. Wnyland was manager of
tho Lackawanna company. Thomas
was ono of the councllmcn alleged to
have been bribed to vote against tho
Tho first case against Maloney had its
inception in a finding of the grand
jury In 1900. There were stories afloat
of illegal lobbying for nnd against the
passage of the new company's fran
chise. The grand jury mado an inves
tigation and ono of the councllmcn
summoned before them, F. W. Zizel
mann, who was then representing tho
Eight ward in common council, testi
fied that Maloney had offered him
money to vote against the new com
pany. Maloney was Indicted.
Tho Municipal league about this time
was secretly Investigating city hall and
with the aid of a clever detective
named Harris, succeeded in unearthing
evidence enough to compel a dozen
councllmen to resign und make partial
restitution for money illegally received
by donations to charitable Institutions.
In the course of the hearings, Select
Councilman Simon Thomas admitted he
had received money from Maloney and
another Indictment was found against
the latter for bribery. Thomas was
also Indicted for accepting a bribe.
The case against Wayland was the
result of his refusal to answer certain
questions bearing on the bribery
charges, when he wns a witness in the
drag-net Inquiry before Alderman Ful
ler. The four cases were put on the list
one term after another, but the ab
sence of Maloney, who left the country,
resulted In their being continued.
After wandering through Canada and
then through Europe, Maloney returned
to this country broken down in health
and' mentally unbalanced. He is now
In the Hillside home.
When all the circumstances were laid
before the prosecutors, an agreement
was. arrived at to let the cases drop.
Accordingly a verdict or nol guilty
was taken yesterday in the case In
which Maloney was charged with at
tempting to bribe Zlzclmann, and a nol
prosse was entered In tho case In which
Maloney was charged with bribing
Thomas and the case In which Wny
land was charged with obstructing jus
tice. The case In which Thomas Is charged
with accepting a bribe Is on the list for
today and In all likelihood will bo nol
