THERE'S A QUESTION
Whether Owners or Tenants Shall
Keep Sidewalks Clean.
The an est of r. S. Pauli for not
cleaning snow fiom the sidewalk of his
pioperty on Spiuco stieet, not to the
Commonwealth building, has raised the
question of whether a property owner
Is lesponslble foi the neglect of his
tenants'. The stieet commissioner Is
the complainant In the case,
Mr. Pauli's counsel contended that It
wns the tenants' duty to Lai e-foi the
Idewalk and asked Aldeinian Howe,
befoie whom the Lase was heard on
Satuidaj, to leseive his decision. The
lequest was gi anted
The city oidlnances do not specify
whether owneis or tenants shall clean
sidewalks, but It Is explicitly piovlded
that "eveiy owner or owneis of any
lot, etc," shall keep their sidewalks
clear of obstructions. A section of the
oidlnanco places the same obligation
on "the peison residing upon the
Name," but this piovlslon, the stieet
commissioner contends, does not le
lease the owner The penalty relates to
the owner or owneis.
The oidlnance dliects the stieet com
missioner to enforce the ordinance.

Notes About Well Known Plnvers.
Shortstop Beaid, Catcher Finnk Boyd
and Outfielder Duly, of the Hochester
elub, have positively been teleasod to
Scranton That happened dining the
middle of last week, but they have not
nttacheil theli fists to Scrunton ion
tracts unless duiing Satuului uftei-
Not one of tho three was let go by
Hochester on account ot Indifferent
playing or for any l canon that might
make him useless to Scranton. Neither
wan It Manager Shannon's choice, ex
cepting the case of Beard, that they
were ieleaed. Beard and the genial
Dan auieed to dlsagiee along toward
tho end of last season and Bod and
Daly met with the dlsfavoi of the
"Big Thiee" Hochester owners Al
though all tluee played steadily during
tho season and plnved well they could
not be letalned under existing Londl
tlons. It nai mainly due to the strong tie
of porsonal filendshlp formed between
Shannon and Urlllln when they played
together In Wllkes-Bane that Shan
non opposed the Hochester owners In
their disposition to dlckei with othei
clubs for the tiansfer of tho men
Shannon can led his point and now it
onlj remains to get the Hlgnatmes 'ot
the tin eo Theie does not seem much
doubt about Beaid, ho has all Lady le
celved $2f.O advance money.
WAY THEY AHE HANKED.
While tho league managers continue
to favor Piovldtnee, Sjiacusound Buf
falo as the piobable leading bunch
dining tho ill st pait of the dash, no
one of them Is looked upon as a dead
suie thing. Scianton and Hochestu
aie stiong second choices Wllkes
Bane, Tot onto and Spiingileld aie not
much thought of.
The Buffalo Enqulier sums up the
situation vei comprehensively as fol
lows. Tho gcneial opinion as expressed by
manngeis tliiougliout the clicult Is that
Piovldence, Buffalo and Sjiacuso will
lnvo the stloiiKist Eustein League teams
this jcai But theso guesses do not
count for much The Stais are mighty
stiong on papci Providence and Buffa
lo aie not stiong et, but Howe Is at
woik, and Piovldence never talks base
ball much In vvlntci; the fans theie as
sume that Aim i ay will get together a
good team and let It go at that. Hoches
tei Is pietty ceitnln to have a stiong
team, even If theie aie knockers In It.
