.Miss Susan Dickinson was on the
stand under dliect. examination when
couit adjourned Krlday afternoon, but
when couit met Hatuiclny she wus not
tcculled to the stand until after Thos,
K. Hallow, assistant district attorney
of Philadelphia, and the legal member
of the committee on lunacy of the Stnte
Hoaul of Charities had been heard, Mr.
Ii.it low swoie that he visited the Dan

letter which Miss Dickinson wiote to
the state bond. He thought she was
Insane. Mr Zlodge In cioss-examlnlng1
Mi. llailow diew foith some very caus
tic replies. Aftei Mr. Hallow left the
stand Miss Susan -Dickinson was 10
cullcd. She said that an electrician named
Mr. Hall called to tieat Anna's face u
numbei of times in .faniuuy, 1SB1. One
day the plaintiff sent her maid, Maltha,
to Hall's six times foi his bill, and
when Mr. Hall brought the iccelpt
about "1 o'clock In the evening, Anna
said she knew the iccelpt was woith
lcss. Witness looked at It. saw that It
was all light, nnd told Anna so. Anna
was displeased with this nnd told her
to go to her 100m. She did so. and
soon nfterwatds heard "Ho out of my
house. you devil!" and saw Anna push
Mr. Hall out of the house.
A WICKHD ODD MAX.
Anna asked her on one occasion If
she remembered when they w ent to see
the poet Whittler at his home In New
Dngland. Susan said she did, nnd then
Anna remaiked that 'Whittler was a
wicked old man. At another time An
na asked Multhu to bilng her a lump,
but witness lefused to allow the maid
to comply with the order. Anna Im
agined that there weie peisons In the
attic and she wanted the lamp to go up
thete. Witness lefused to let her have
It, because she was afraid she would
set Hie to the house. When the maid
lefused to bilng Anna the lamp, s-he
chased her out of the house and down
Witness then explained how Anna
choked her on one occasion when she
went to her loom to cet some trays on
which food had been can led to Anna.
She told Mattha ,to go and get some
one and the maid soon leturned with
Young Hggleston. When Anna saw
him she lellncuilshed her gi asp on wit
ness' tin oat. The removal of Anna to
the Insane asylum was descilbed In de
tail and her subsequent lemoval to
Ooshen, N. Y.
Mis. Dllzaboth Haveitnn, of Mont
clalr, N. J., wrote to witness stating a
case which had been cuied by Dr. John
Seward, of oshen, nnd witness ob
tained Anna removal from the asy
lum to Goshen. The money for the re
moval and tieatment nt Goshen was
furnished by Geneinl Chrlstlanson, of
Hiooklyn. N. Y. She found a number
of Anna's valuables In a tiunk In the
ganet and sent them all to the Mlneis'
Savings bank ii I'lttston, with the ex
ception of one nrtlde which was valued
nt $.'00. This she used to lalse money
on with which to pay the lent.
Afterwnids she secured money and
ledeemed the Jewel, which was placed
with the lest. Afterwauls all the Jew
elry was dellveied to Mis. Ackeily, o'
New Yoik, who came to her with 11
note fiom Howe & Hummell, Her sis
ter's tiuuks weie all conveyed to New
York tluouKh the same means. The
letter which Mis. Aclceily brought as
an older for these goods was offered In
The cross-examination of the witness
by Attorney Hodge was veiy seaichlng.
She said that some of the money to
pay the lent while they lived in West
I'lttston was furnished by Geneial Hen
Hutler, who wan one of Aniifi's warm

"Weie vou ever Jealous of youi sis

"No: I was very pioud of her, and

lion Wns Viewed Yesterday Iroin
No one. last night, could foiccnst
with rtny degiee of certainty what the
outcome at this morning's woik of
councils will be. If all men weie given
to telllnir the Until, the whole truth,
and nothing but the tiutli. nnd not
prone to sudden changes of sentiment.
It might be possible for a live newspa
per after some real haul canvassing
to make 11 fairly accuiate guess us to,
the possible lesults, but as men ate not
as u mle sitting up nlgbts nuislng un
such complaints ur veiaclty or tenac
ity of pui pose, the fuieshadowlng of an
event 01 seiles of events such us those
scheduled fur today, Is. us said before-,
a tuther lash undei tuklnif.
The events most especially sutroiind
ed with unceitaluty are the tieatment
that will lie- aceoulod the unnuul ap
propilntlon oidlnance and the manner
In which the leoiganteatlon of com
mon council will be effected.
The Democtats, or those who nie rec
ORnlzed .as their spokesmen, say that
the old common council will not meet
again and that the Republican select
binnch must ie-elnd its objectionable
amendments or shoulder the ichponsl
hlllty of killing the nidlnance. They
also say that Mr. Nealls will be chosen
chad man of the lower branch and that
possibly a suipilse will be tun urn; In
the shape of a wlnnlmr candidate for
the chair In the upper biuneh.
The- llepubllcnns say that the Dem
ociuts ure talking and aetluu like so
many child! en lather than city fa
theis buideiied with the lesponslblll
ties of the government of the thlid city
In the commonwealth. Thev also de-claic-
that If common council does not
meet to consider the amendments, the
ordinance will die, as the select coun
cil Is not to be fenced Into denvlng It
self the prerogative of legislating ur
It may deem lit, through any baby
tactics ot the Dcmociatlc lower brunch.
CHARACTERIZED AS ROT.
Defection ill the Republican ranks In
tho upper blanch Is characterized as
the veilest lot, anil as to the Indubit
able election of Mr. Nealls, they say
well, they say nothing: but they smell
a veiy mysteilous kind of smell II y
caiefully reading the nbove unblused
burvej of the situation, folding up the
paper and waiting until about 11
o'clock, the tender can leadlly nit Ke
nt the full knowledge ot the ic-sult.
Intel views with vailoim meinbets of
the Demociacy of the lower binnch
discloses their Intention to lellgiously
ailheie to the detei initiation not to go
near the council chamber until the
hour for reorganization, 10 o'clock-.
They will meet at John Klanaghan's
Globe hotel, and not because they dis
trust one another, but simply ns a mat
ter of extia piecautlon, will lock them
selves In a room and -stay there juntll
about ten minutes of the time for le
oiganlzatlon. At the caucus Friday
night every one of the Democrats of the
dying or, as they c lalm, dead council
piomlsed to stick together In this
One of them, however, Mr. Gtlioy, re
fused to bind himself farther. Mr.
Nealls assaulted and Insulted him at
the last reorganlzatlon.and used all the
power of the Nealls faction to defeat
htm for ie. election In Febiuaiy, and
he openly and above boaid lefuses to
suppoit him for ehnliman. Whether or
not Mr. Gller can be depended upon to
peacefully submit to be lldden over
lough shod by his ancient and moital
enemies Is another question that. If an-
sweied to the satisfaction of the Nealls
people, would lelleve them of much
Mr. Grler did not come Into line of
his own accord. He was whipped In
by a contest which Is to be vvlthdiawn
If he will allow himself to be handled
by his enemies. The Demociats them
selves confehs that they an- not overly
sanguine- of the wily Grler, who twice
befoie trave '.hem seveie chastisement
for t lying to coeice him. The fact that
the Nealls people and the Intel ests ut
their command went Into Giles's ward
and tiled to beat him, and falllns lu
this, Instigated a contest to frighten
him Into Hue, would lead n man up a
tree to believe that Grler has, been
slniuly Joll.vlng his enemies along so
as to make- their thiow down nil the
MAY UK I'RKSIDKNT.
Grler Is cunning and Grler is vlneile
tlve. and If he doesn't Uo something
that will show his enemies that Iip la
far frnin being the thoioughly bioken
down war hoit-e they picture him, 'it
will be a disappointment to those who
have watched the political cau-ei of
the young gentlemnn S10111 the Thlid
It would not be surptlslng If It would
be Pi evident filler for another year.
11. C Hatton, clerk of the lower
binnch. will be ie-elected, the wlce
acies say, although It will not be with
out opposition. Mi. Flanaghan de
elated at the Demociat - caucus th-t
he tvould not vote foi a Republican
cleik with the- De-mociats In the major
ity, and It Is his pui pose- to nominate
John 1'. Mnhoii or W. F. McLean nml
have u toll call, that his colleagues
may be put nu rec-oul.
Colonel George Samlet sun will be re
elected chairman In the upper biaueh.
Clerk I.avelle hedels over There are
no new membeis to be Inducted and
the Demociats will nut likely even put
u cundlelate against Colunel Sander
son, so nil In all, the icorgnulzattou of
the upper biuuch will be u veiy tame
Tho nine Republlcun numbers of
common council will be on hiinil ut 0
o'clock and may possibly proceed to
hold u meeting Hlx of them, one, more
than the ic-qulnd number, made n de
mand on I'l evident Oilei Filday ulsht
to call a special meeting for o'clock
this inoinliig. Mr. Oiler has not us yet
Issued the call, nnd us It must be Is
sued twenty-four hotus pn-vlous to the
appointed time, It can not now be is
sued. Whether or not the meeting will take
dace depends entliely on the way the
law hus been Interpieted, to them by
the nuthuiltles from whom' legal advice
has been sought since the complication
uroie. It inuy he tliut they will Jake
It that the Democrats who voted to ad
journ sine die before the time nie
scribed by law have legislated them
selves out of olllce, or vhtually re
signed, uml In that ease those who ie
maln, though they do not make a
quoiuni, must iHegurHy tuny on tho
city's business until such time us the
new council 01uuulr.es. If this view is
taken of the matter the appropriation
ordinance will eome over from suleet
council and be paired as amended.
The councils were never before in
such a perplexing dilemma, ami Its
outcome will be awaited with gloat In
terest. In case tho uiuuoinliitlon or
dinance Is licit passed, a new one must
be Introduced by the next council, and
nt tho best cannot be passed In much
less time than four weeks, In the
inenntlma the city will be without
teventie, and no head of department
cun spend u cent for supplies or labor.
In addition to this the annual tax
levy oidlnance, vvhloh should be opera
tive by May 1, will be put back a
month and the levying and collection
of taxes will be dclaed Just that much
Employes of the Scranlon Railway Cum

The reason for the diminution Is be
