MR. GRIER ENTERS A PROTEST
Ho (Sites Mr. Dunning to Understand
Tlntt When One of tlio Constituents
of tho Member oTtlio Third Wnnts n
Job Hci'll Ilhvc to (Set H--A Conn
uilninn Who Says Tluit n Reform Is
Not lossiblcUon.sons Ho Ad
vances for tho Sentiment.
As predicted In The Tribune yester
day the letter of Street Commissioner
Dunning Is causing a very lively howl
among the city fathers. Several of
them called on Mr. Dunning yesterday
and pointedly told him what they
thought about his purpose to assume
entire charge of the workings of his
One of the first to enter his protest
was James Grler, ex-presldcnt of the
common council and the Third ward's
present reoresentatlve In that body.
Mr. Grler wanted to know what was
the use of being a councilman anyway
If a man can't take care of his con
stituents. When he wants one of hip
people employed on the streets of his
ward that man will be taken care of
and the street commissioner might Just
as well know that Ilrst as last, was
what Mr. Grler said.
Mr. Dunning assured Mr. Grler that
It was not his Intention to Invite a war
with the councllmen, but ho wants to
live up to the law and to that end had
asked the support and co-operation of
the councllmen. He will, of course,
consult councllmen about the men em
ployed In the various wards. This was
not wholly satisfactory to Mr. Grler,
but ho departed In a somewhat pleas
anter frame than he arrived In. Oth
er councllmen called who had a story
similar to that of Mr. Grler to tell.
MAYOR SAW IT.
Mayor Bailey, when seen by a Trib
une reporter yesterday afternoon, said
that Mr. Dunning submitted the let
ter to him before copies were addressed
to the councllmen. He thought it was
a step in the right direction and told
Mr. Dunning so. He does not antici
pate much opposition from the coun
cllmen for he believes they will see the
necessity of some such system as Mr.
A councilman with whom a Tribune
reporter talked yesterday does not echo
the opinion of the mayor and he fur
thermore said that in his opinion the
present street commissioner will not
be able to work any reforms In tho
matter of expending ward appropria
tions. "The offlce of street commissioner,"
he said, "is a political office and the
man who fills it must stand by his
friends and do a number of things that
he probably would not consider for a
moment if he was otherwise situated.
It will be unwise and indiscreet for Mr.
Dunning to get at loggerheads with the
councllmen and I don't believe he will
do It. If he does they will simply get
back at him by tying his hands and
making It impossible for him to do any
thing In their wards without being
guided by them absolutely.
' QUOTES THE ORDINANCE.
"The section of the ordinance which
Mr. Dunning quotes contains the fol
lowing: ' 'Provided, that no fore
man, laborers, or assistants shall be
employed and no contracts made, ma
terials purchased, or work done. In any
ward of the city, except by and with
te advice and consent of the select and
common councllmen of the ward In
which the material is to be used or
the work performed.'
"You will observe that this provision
makes the street commissioner depend
ent upon the councllmen and if they in
sist on a strict compliance with the let
ter of this ordinance they can make a
good deal of unpleasantness for Mr.
Dunning; and can greatly hamper him
in his work.
"I have devoted some time to a
thoughtful consideration of this matter
of expending ward appropriations and
I don't believe that It can be remedied
a great deal. If the money could be
expended so that the city would receive
value for each dollar 1 know that theio
would be a great Improvement In our
streets but I really fear that an honest
return will never be obtained and for
the very good reason that no one ex
pects to do much work if they are em
ployed by the city.
"Although the city pays higher
wages to laborers than any contractor
the minute a man finds himself on the
city's pay roll he thinks it Is his duty
to kill as much time as possible. The
men employed by councllmen In the
various words do quite as honest a
day's work as the regular employes of
the street department and nothing
would be gained by having these men
do tho work."
IS NOT DISMAYED.
Street Commissioner Dunning does
not seem to be at all dismayed by tho
unpleasant reception his letter re
ceived in some quarters.
"Yes," ho said yesterday, "some ob
jections have been raised by council
men but others take kindly to the idea
and altogether I guc'ss-everything will
come out all right in the end."
VERDICT AGAINST B0NTA COMPANY.
Squire J. IS. Lci.il Will Hnvo to l'ny
I'nll Amount ol Clulm.
The case of S. J. Hinds against the
Bonta Plate Glass company which
was put on trial in common pleas

tho plaintiff In the sum of $254.85 was
given. Mr. Hinds claimed that sum
as wages. A number of other cases
.similar to that of Mr. Hind's have been
brought against tho Bonta company.

A CLASH OF INTERESTS.
Dispute Concerning n Mortgngn Given
to tho I I). Collins Kstnte.
Last November M. J. O'Boyle became
Indebted to the F. D. Collins estate In
the sum of $750 and gave a five-year
mortgage on a lot In T)unmore as se
curity. By the provisions of the mort
gage, one-fourth of the amount was to
be paid to F, D. Boyle, guardian of the
minor child! en, and three-fourths to
Mrs. Mary A, Garvey, of Dunmore,
administratrix, and all of It could be
paid at any time within the five years
that the mortgagor might elect.
Mrs. O'Boylo recently made an at
tempt to satisfy the mortgage, but Mr.
Boyle refused to accept a one-fourth
share, saying that one-half belonged
to the Interests he represented. Yes
terday, through Attorney T. J. Dug
gan, Mrs. O'Boyle .secured from Judge
Gunster a rule on Mr. Boyle to show
cause why the mortgagor should not
havo leave to pay the money Into court.
By agreement of counsel the rule
was made absolute forthwith and court
directs the recorder of deeds to satisfy
the mortgage upon Mr. O'Boyle pay
ing into court $777, being the full
amount of tho mortgage with interest
and costs to date.

City Engineer Joseph P. Phillips,
Street Commissioner A. B. Dunning,
Jr., General Manager Prank Sllllmnn,
Jr., of the Scranton Railway company;
Select Councilman II. T. Fellows and
Common Councilman Joseph Oliver, of
the Fifteenth ward, and Select Council
man R. H. Williams, of the Fifth ward,
yesterday afternoon made on examina
tion of Luzerne street from Main ave
nue west and South Main avenue from
Luzerne street to No. 32 school.
It was found that the grade of Lu
zerne street has been seriously affected
by numerous small mine Caves in that
vicinity and In consequence it is not
possible to avoid Jarge mud holes dn
the street. The trouble can not.be en
tirely remedied until a sewer drains
that thoroughfare, but the situation is
now very much worse than it was a
few years ago after the street was
graded at considerable expense to the
property owners and the city.
The mine caves have so depressed the
street In spots that convenient lodging
places for surface water are formed.
With a view to fixing up the street a
special appropriation of $250 was made
by councils and the Scranton Railway
company hasalso agreed to assist In the
woik by grading between the rails of
Its I rack, making the latter conform to
grade and then planking the rails on
City Engineer Phillips said yesterday
that the grade at the Intersection of
South Main ayenue and Luzerne street
has Mink at least four feet or recent
years. At all events It Is now that far
below the established grade.
Luzerne street will be regraded In as
good a maner as possible with the
amount at hand which will be aug
mented by portions of the ward appro
priations of the Fifth and Fifteenth
wards. It will not be possible now to
re-establish the old grade of the street,
changed conditions making that impos
sible. The grading will be done, however.
In such a manner as to make but little
change In the sidewalks now laid. It be
ing the Intention of the city officers to
cause the property owners as little ex
pense as possible. r
After going over Luzerne street the
party turned Its attention to South
Main avenue which Is soon to be re
paired from Luzerne street to No. 32
school. In consequence of the depres
sion above referred to at Luzerne street
and South Main avenue a hill has been
created Just south of that point. It
will be cut down and a more even grade
ON MAIN AVENUE.
On this street the Scranton Railway
company will also depress Its tracks
to conform to grade and will plank the
rails within and without. The cost of
repairing South Main avenue must be
paid from the war;d appropriation.
Late In the afternoon the street com
missioner went to the South Side and
In company with Select Councilman
Coyne, of the Twentieth ward, exam
ined a number of the streets of that
ward, paying particular attention to
