The appointment must necessarily
be made under the existing law,
and this provides that it shall con
tinue to the first Monday of Janu
ary, 1911, and that the election for
the full term shall take place in
November, 1911. A constitutional
amendment has been proposed, and
is to be voted on at tho election
this year, providing (schedule, last
paragraph), that judges of the
several judicial districts, holding
office when the amendment is
adopted, whose terms may end in
3 911, shall continue in office until
the first Monday of January, 1912.
Should this amendment, if adopt
ed, be held applicable to the pres
ent appointment, it will leave a
vacancy on tho llrat Monday of
January, 1911, which must be
tilled by appointment until the first
Monday of January, 1912. That
such will be its effect would seem
probable, from the proposed amend
ment, providing that elections for
Judges of tho several judicial dis
tricts shall be held in an odd num
bered year, and this will require
the election for the regular term
to be held in November, 1911.

J. B. Schriever, of Wyoming ave
nue, Scranton, has on exhibition a
photograph in natural colors made
without the use of special lens.
The object is a vase of variegated
llowers and the photo shows every
color, tine and shade of the bou
quet and even discloses that the
tin of tho roof on which the vase
rested when photographed had been
freshly painted in spots, the dull
ness and brightness of the old and
new paint, respectively, being read
ily discernible. Tho plate was
made in France, but the camera was
a f" olio taken from stock.
The technical description of the
process is given by Mr. Schriever as
The reproduction of an object in
sensitive silver salts whkh was made
practical by Dagnue, was received
with much wonder. Not less than
this do we at the present time look
anon the making of colored pictures
with practically one operation to bo
lully as wonderful.
.Many attempts have been made by
scientific men to solve this problem.

the layer appears colorless when
examined by transmitted light, and
absorbs but a small percentage of
the light received.
The sensitive coating Is extreme
ly thin and made of a special fine
grained panchromatic emulsion.
When such a plate Is exposed In
the camera, the glass side toward
the lens the light, beforo reaching
the sensitive coating, passes through
the colored starch grains, which act,
Individually, ns mlniito screens,
each one nbsorbing nil colors but
Its own. A microscopical selection
takes place and after development
there Is found under each grain a
corresponding black image (reduc
ed silver) of a density proportionate
to the amount of color received and
transmitted by this particular grain.
Were tho plates fixed at tills stage,
the picture, when examined by
transmitted light would show only
tho colors complementary to those
of tho original, since tho true col
ors aro masked by tho black images
they created benoatli the grains.
But Alien the reduced silver is dis
solved (In tho permanganate solu
tion) the imago is reversed; the
opaguo imago under each grain be
comes translucent and transmits
colored lights precisely of the samo
hue as tho light transmitted by the
grain when the pinto was exposed in
the camera; in other words, the
color is reconstructed just as It was
decomposed during the exposure.
A special yellow screen must bo
fitted to the lens in order to equalize
the action of the light and compen
sate for tho predominant actinism
of tho violet and blue rays, to which
the panchromatic emulsion is most
sensitive. Aside from this screen
tho actual camera equipment Is the
same as for making ordinary negatives.
