People who have had occasion to trav
el on Mulberry street have long; mur
mured about the condition of that
thoroughfare, but until the past two
days they have not readied what It
really could do when ns&lstPd a trllle
In Its downward career. The street
railway company Is the present medi
um of its state of eruption. A lone;
switch Is being laid between Jefferson
and Madison avenues, with a new track
to Clay. Between th.it mid Prescolt
another switch Is to be placed. These
nro needed Improvements and will ren
der the Petersburg; and Nay Aur Falls
line equal to any In the city, but Just
row the patrons of the road tuff or
much inconvenience since it Is neces
sary to walk nearly two blocks in or
der to be transferred to the car on the
other side of the torn up tracks. The
two processions which meet In chang
ing cars these hot days, would afford
' -much amusement If there were any
body to be amused, but there Isn't.
The people all glare at each other with
malignant dislike as they ruin along
perspiring and thlnklngunmentlonable
things. On the up trip at times, when
the enrs nre full, the helter-skelter
BCamper across tho intervening space
reminds one of the game of "going to
Boston" where there Is always one
chair lacking to accommodate the com
pany, and when at the signal for all
to change, the excitement as to which
one shall get left Is a never-ending de
light to the youngsters. The people
who were triumphantly seated at tho
beginning of the Journey are certain
to stand on the steps during Its finish.
The conductors do not have a very
good time with this system of "trans
t furs" any more than do the passengers.
Yesterday a very patient and long
BUfferlng official was discovered laden
with a heavy telescope bag beneath
which he was tolling through the blaz
ing Bun In order to assist a woman who
had all she could manage with a trio
of little chlldrei.. It was really very
"Ind of him and is only one instance of
hW Courtesy and thoughtfiilness. An
other conductor on a morning trip "tot
ed"' a watermelon for n woman who had
. entirely too many packages to carry,
and they say this mode of locomotion
will continue for a month.

In response to a communication ad
dressed by City Treasurer C. O. Bo
land to Stato Treasurer Haywood and
by him referred to the auditor general
the following letter has been received
by Mr. Boland:
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Audit
Hnrrlsburg, Aug. 2, 1S07.
C. G. Boland. Esq.,
City Treasurer, Scrnnton, Pa.
Dear sir: Tho stato treasurer has'' re
ferred to this olllce your letter of the 31st
ultimo In tho matter of tho portion of the
state tax on the premiums of foreign
fire insurance ci mpanles to which your
city Is ci titled under the Act of 1S93, and
in answer thereto I have to say that the
sharo of jour city for ISM will bo 2,
2G1.27, nnd that this amount will be paid
as soon as tho computations of the va
rious amounts duo a'.I tho boroughs and
cities have been made, which 1 suppose
will be about the llrst of September, but
probably not irtll a little later.
Very truly yours,
Amos H. Mylln,
Tho Intention of the men who
framed the law was to have this money
go into a, fund In the cities, boroughs
and townships of tho stnto for the re
lief of firemen who became sick or
disabled while in tho service. That
Intention could not be expressed In thu
bill for It would render It unconstitu
tional. There was a tacit understand
ing, however, that the money should
be used for the relief of the firemen.
It was at first proposed that fire
men's relief associations bo organized
and the money duo to each city, bor
ough and township be paid Into the
treasury of such associations. This
It waa found would be Illegal as the act
does not specify that the money shall
be credited to any particular fund and
councils have not the power to appro
priate money from the general city
fund for charitable purposes. City So
licitor F. M. Trexler, of Alelntown, has
rendered the following opinion to the
city controller of that city on the sub
ject: James Bailsman, city controller.
"I am in receipt o an Inquiry from you
which reads as follows:
"Tho finance department of th& city
councils has passed a voucher in favor
of tho Allentown Firemen's Relief as
sociation for $163.66 as directed by ordin
ance No. 134 (a copy of which Is hereto
attached) approved Juno 4, 1S97. Tnls
voucher has been presented to me to bo
countersigned. Will you pleaso Inform
me whether councils can legally appro
priate money from tho city treasury for
tho purpose mentioned In said ordinance,
and whether I have tho right to counter
sign said voucher."
The ordinenco In question appropriates
tho money received from the state treas
urer In nccordanco to tho act of Juno
2Sth, A. D. U93, Pamphlet Laws 410.
That act in substance provides that one
half of the two per centum paid upon
premiums by foreign Insurance companies
shall bo paid to the treasurers of cities
and boroughs in whicn said lnsuranco
companies do business. It will bo noticed
that tho act of assembly does not pro-
lie what disposition shall be made of
this money so paid to the treasurers of
cities and borctghs for any specific object
but can bo vsed by them as the author
ities of said cities and boroushs see fit
provided the use of said money is such
as is sanctioned by law.
THE ONLY QUESTION.
Tho only question tho-efore to bo con
sidered Is whether tho c:ty has a right,
under Its charter, to appropriate money
to tho AUontown Firemen's Relief asso
ciation. It is a well known principal of
municipal law that a city has no powers
except such as are expressed In Its chart
ev or such as aro necessarily Implied
li border to carry out the object of Its
Tho acts of assembly governing citt?3
of tho third class does not contain any
grant of power which would authorize
a city to appropriate money to the Fire
men's Relief association. In fact if such
power wore contained in the acts of as
sembly It would avail nothing.
Tho constitution of Pennsylvania, ar
ticle 9, section 7, provides as follows:
"The general assembly shall not author
ize any county, city, borough, township
or Incorporated district to becomo a
stockholder In any company, associa
tion or corporation or to obtain or appro
priate money for or loan Its credit to any
corporation, association, Institution or In
dividual." Under this section tho legis
latuo would havo no right to authorize a
olty to appropriate money to an corpota
tlon or association. In tho case of Wllkes
Barre City hospital Vh. tho county of Lu.
zerne, SI Pennsylvania state Reports,
Pago 53. Tho. act of the 21st of May, 1S74,
enabling a private Incorporated hospital
to mnke requisition upon a county for
the payment of Its charges for the sup
port of patients under Its treatment even
though they be paupers, was declared to
be unconstlt lonnl since it was an appro
priation of money by the county to a cor
poration. I regret that I cannot find any way to
ociviso you to pay this money 4o tho Al
lcr.town Firemen's Relief association, Tne
objects of tho association are such as
appeal to every one's sympathies.
The law on tho subject I?, however,
very r'aln and hardly admits of any
dlscusstcn, I must therefore advise you
TTia't you cannot lawfully authorize the
payment of the warrant by countersign
lug the same.
A RELIEF BOARD.
In this city it is proposed to get
around the difficulty in another way.
A firemen's relief board is to be or
ganized, consisting of two members
from each lire company In tho city, to
gether with the chief of the fire de
partment, mayor, city treasurer and
city controller. Claims for relief will
be reported by tho members from each
company and after being approved by
tho board, will be presented to coun
cils for passage, as other nre depart
ment bills are. It Is thought that this
can be done without encountering any
Next year when the annual appro
priatlon ordinance Is made up councils
mny be asked to Insert a line in the
fire department section of it providing
a disability fund equal to the amount
that will bo received from the state.
The firemen are confident that all of
this can be done. City officials are not
Treasurer Boland said yesterday that
the money will have to go Into the
general city fund and while he sincere
ly hoped the firemen will be able to
receive the money ho was at a loss to
see a way by which It can legally be
done under tho opinions on the sub
ject that ho has read.
Bomo time nest week a meeting of
tho relief commllteo will be called for
the purpose of organization. Already
every fire company In the city Bave the
Kelief nnd William Connell companies
have chosen members to servo on It.

of Hnrry Seeley struck a man on the
Mlffiln avenue Delaware, Lackawanna.
and "Western switch. The engine was
stopped and the crew ran back down
tho tracks to pick up the remains.
The man who had been struck was
upon his feet and greeted the frigh
tened engineer In broken English:
"What's the matter," ho said.
"Ain't you hurt?"
"Naw," said the fellow shuggling his
shoulders and stnrtlng to walk away.
Tho train hands looked at each other
Engineer Seoley said that the fel
low was laying on his back across the
track. The engine could not be stopped
In time nnd the pilot ploughed straight
Into the prostrate form.
Tho train hands decided that If the
fellow was not hurt ho ought to be so
they proceeded to thrash him. The man
struck back but after feeling a lot of
heavy boots attempted to escape.
About that time Lieutenant Davis
and Patrolman McMullen hove in
sight. They at once chased after the
fellow. He was not captured and when
last seen he was running for dear llfo
up Mifllln avenue.
He wns apparently a tired Hungar
ian, partially drunk, and ho lay down
on the track to sleep.
SHAMROCK WAS NOT POISONED.
Deputy Coroner McGrnth Found nu
Inquest Was Not Necessnry.
Dr. John F. McGrath, who acted as
deputy coroner during yesterday while
Coroner Longstreet was on a profes
sional visit, was called upon to In
quire Into tho death of Anthony Shan:
rock, a Slav, who died Tuesday at his
home on Main avenue, Olyphant.
Tho case was reported to County
Detective Leyshon with the Informa
tion that the man had been poisoned.
Dr. McGrath went to Olyphant yes
terday afternoon and upon stating hln
ml; I on wns met with decisive denials
by the wife of the dead man and her
friends. They referred Dr. McGrath to
Dr. Kelly, who had attended Shamrock
during his eleven days' of sickness.
Dr. Kelley was positive that the man
died a natural death from apoplexy.
No inquest was held. How the report
originated is causing some thinking in
the county detective's olllce.
