MR. BOLAND'S LETTER.
Accompanying the report was this
E. D. Follows, Secretary Board of Con
trol, Scranton School District, Scranton,
Dear sir: In connection with annual
report for school year ending Juno 30,
1S97, submitted herewith, I have to In
form you that from July 1st, to July 12th,
1897 inclusive, this office has paid war
rants issued by tho board previous to
July 1st, 1S97, In said Bchool year ns fol
lows: General school warrants $13,79S 72
Building warrants 182 CO
(Signed) C. G. Boland.
Treasurer Scranton school district.
The balance of $02,718.76 includes the
interest and sinking fund account of
$28,397.59, which can be used for only
the purpose Indicated and which leaves
a balance of but $31,321.17 available for
general purposes. Out of the latter
sum must bo deducted the $1C,9S1.22
mentioned in the city treasurer's letter
ns having been paid out since July 1
for school warrants issued prior to that
date. Secretary Fellows, who is in
camp with the Thirteenth regiment nt
Mount Gretna, left behind him a letter
addressed, to President Jennings, stat
ing that warrants amounting to$18,28S.
10 had been authorized by the board,
but had not been Issued from the sec
retary's oftlce. In addition to these
sums, bills duo before July 1 and
amounting to about $1,800 were ap
proved by the board last night.
Adding the $10,981.22, $1S,28S.10 and
$1,800 mentioned In the foregoing,
shows $37,009.32 ns an indebtedness for
which there Is but $31,321.17 available
and which leaves a deficit of $2,718.15
in the school treasury.
The report and the board's financial
condition were referred to'the finance
committee with Instructions to report
at the next meeting.
There was also referred to the com
mittee a number of bills for large
amounts, some of which were to be paid
out of the 1896-97 appropriations and
some of which were, by agreement, not
to bo paid until after July 1. These
latter Included bills of E. S. "Williams,
Architect Davis, the Hunt & Connell
company and John Benore & Sons for
considerable sums for contract and es
timates on new Nos. 23, 15 and 26 school
When Mr, Langan read a list of bills
approved by tho high and training
school committees, Mr. Williams called
the board's attention to the expense
incurred for decorations for tho High
school graduation exercises and urged
that this Item bo done away with In
The high and training school com
mittees asked for Instructions regard
ing the expense which would bo in
volved in establishing the commercial
course at the High school. Mr. Langan
reported that quite a large sum might
have to be expended for the cabinet
work and furniture necessary to tho
course. After some discussion it was
decided, on motion of Mr. Gibbons, to
postpone until later in the year any
definite recommendations to the com
mittee. President Jennings remarked during
a discussion of further improvements
to the grounds of Nos. 10 and 23
schools that he would refuse to sign
nny warrants, no matter how small
the sum Involved, if there were no
available funds to meet them.

HOTEL KEEPER SERIOUSLY ACCUSED.
Tho Othor Sido of the Story, How
ever, Has Not lleon Heard.
Hoteikeeper John Mofhtt, of Brick
avenue, was arrested by Constable
Coles, last night, on a warrant sworn
out before Alderman Howe by Charjei
Sherman, In which the charge is assault
and bnttory antl robbery,
Sherman, who Is a collector for tho
Providence Gas and Water company,
had a dispute with Moflltt over the
amount of his water rent Saturday
night. Moflltt, 1t Is alleged, threw tho
collector out on his head nnd then re
lieved him of $47.
Moflltt waived a hearing nnd entered
bnll for his appearance at tho next
term of criminal rourt, when his side
of the Btory will bo heard.
KILLED A HIRED HORSE.
William H'nrrcn Hold to Answer for
Cruelty to Animals.
On May II, William Warner, a line
man for tho Scranton Electric Light
and Hent company, hired a horse from
Cuslck's livery for tho purpose, as he
said, of making a tour of inspection on
the hill. Tho nnlmal was taken oat nt
noon and at midnight was picked up
by the police in a dilapidated condition.
From the neglect nnd abuse the horse
underwent, It died the next day.
Warner, it appears, became intoxi
cated after taking the horse out and
after driving around from saloon to
saloon wont to his homo on the South
Side. Ills younger brother, upon learn
ing that he had not attended to his
work, hunted up Joseph McDonald, an
other lineman, who was found attend
ing a ball nt Turner hall, and had him
make the neglected. Inspection.
McDonald nnd the younger Warner
did not know that the- horse had been
abused and being In a hurry they drove
him nt a good pace over the route they
had to follow and when the police, who
had been notified from the livery to
look out for the horse, found him in a
lather of sweat and limping badly, they
arrested the pair and locked them up.
They were allowed to go later upon
making their explanations.
The elder Warner, upon sobering up
and learning of the arrests, got out of
the way and It was not until yesterday
that the authorities could locate him.
He, In company with McDonald and
young Warner, were arrested at the In
stance of the livery keeper and taken
before Alderman Howe for a hearing.
Tho two latter wore again exculpated,
but Warner was required to furnish
$300 ball to answer at court for cruelty
He tried to make out that the horse
balked and reared coming down Mul
berry street hill and was Injured by
reason of its own vlclousness. Wit
nesses were called in rebuttal to show
that the animal was quiet and tame
and never known to balk.
HAAQ WAS RIGHT THERE.
Set Upon by Two Men, Who Iloro
Him mi Ancient Grudge.
Ex-Police Officer Harry Hang was
set upon by two men on Lackawanna
avenue last evening, whose evident in
tention was to get even with him for
eorao grudge they bore him since tho
time he was on the force. They were
thwarted in their Intention however
and one of them will probably not go
to work today.
Hnag thinks he recognizes them as
two Bellevue men whom he arrested
one night for raising a disturbance
on lower Lackawanna avenue. Ho
does not Intend to have them arrested,
feeling that he gave them all thq
punishment they deserve.
HE RECEIVED A QUEER " DOLLAR.
But He Got a Good Ono for It from
Yesterday morning Nicholas Sossong
appeared before Alderman Howe with'
an unmistakable counterfeit silver dol
lar, which he alleged he received Sat
urday from Rosenberg Bros., of Penn
Ono of the firm was sent for and
when he learned the accusation ho
gave Sossong a good dollar, nnd tak
ing the bad one destroyed it with a
pen knife. He said he did not know
whether or not the dollar was given out
at his store, but sooner than have any
bother he gave up a dollar.
