Shylocks Win.
Taking the stand that the act of
the Pennsylvania Legislature of May
11 th of this year, governing the con
duct of money lending establish
ments, Is class legislation, Judge
Sulzberger at Philadelphia has de
clared the law unconstitutional.
As a result, the money-lending con
cerns may now conduct their busi
ness without being handicapped by
legislative enactments.
The decision was rendered In the
case of the Jefferson Credit Company
In Philadelphia, which has been do
ing a leading business for several
years. After the passage of the act
to govern loan operations the com
pany applied for a license, that us
proprietor might not lay himself
open to a fine of from ?B0 to ?200
and Imprisonment. The clerk of
Quarter Sessions refused to Issue
the permit, as the act made no pro-1 ly scratched his nose, and then wlth
vislon for such a course. The case . out uttering a sound, took his de-
was then appealed to the court. ,
The act, according to Judge Sulz-
berger, Is remarkable in that It dl-
vldes money Into minor and major
clnssiflcatlons, the lntter being sums 1
of ?200 or more; that loans are made
of two kinds, those In which a note i
or contract is given and those In I
which there Is no such pnper; and,
finally, that borrowers are classified I
as wage earners and married men
on one hand, and non-wngc earners
and single men on the other.
It is in tills last classification that
he finds the most Important Haw, as
it makes a law against wage earners,
he says, which does not apply to
other citizens. This he regnrded as
offensive to the letter and spirit of
the constitution.
Erie Coal to Again be Shipped Via
the I). & H. Bond.
Arrangements have been made
whereby the coal from the Erie

& H. cars aud with crews in the

new change means much to Car
bondale. It will furnish employ
ment to a number of men at pres
ent on the extra list and for most
of the time unemployed. The Erie
coal is now shipped over the road
by way of Lackawaxen. Until a
year ago it was shipped over the
D. & H.
Superintendent Burr, of the Del
aware and Hudson Company, has
Just returned from New York city
where ho drew up the agreement
with the officials of the Erie com
pany. At the time the Erie began ship
ping its coal over by way of Lacka
waxen it was found necessary to
remove the dispatchers from Scran
ton to Susquehanna and many of
the old employes also removed to
that town in order to be more con
venient to their work'.

furnish the pusher engines from
this city and will also do the dis
patching from their office. Scran

The. Prolific "Dossiers." j
The Carbondale Leader printed I
the following libel, on Friday last: j
"A few days ago three young peo
ple from Honesdale started out for
a "Joy riilo in the rural district
and incidentally expected to pay a
visit at one of the I arm houses whore
i friend of one of the party lived,
None of tho party know exactly
where the farm was located and it
was decided to watch tho names on
tho mail boxes along the rural route
to find their party. When tho trio
arrived at a farm house, in which
they thought resided the friend, they
perceived the name of "Hessler"
printed plainly on the box. As it
wns not the name that was being
looked for, the journey was con
tinued. The next mail box had the
name of "Hessler" on it as did five
or six others passed later. It was
getting late and as tho trio were
some distance trom home the search
A short time later one of the trio

Hurt In Runaway Accident.
Saturday afternoon Mr. Walter
Whitney was driving along on tho
north side of Mr. Homer Green's
property on North Main street, and
when coming down a slight incline
part of the harness broke. This
frightened the horse, and In a few
jumps, he went over the wall at
that point, with the carriage, also
over another wall below, each being
about five feet in height, and
landed In the street below. Mr.
Whitney jumped before the first
wall waB reached, and escaped with
a broken wrist and a badly wrenched
shoulder. Tho horse, strange to
say, was not Injured, but the buggy
was considerably smashed.
Trolley Talk Hurts uncut.
The Mllford, Pike county, Press
says, concerning the trolley road
which Is soon to be extended from
Honesdale to Seelyvllle that "trol
ley talk gives people down here a
worse pain than green apples do
the small boy, and Is quite as real."
We suppose so. Anything else In
the way of modern improvement
does, also. The ox-team which is
still used as a means of transporta
tion over there, Is evidently good
enough for Milford.
