AFTER THE VICIOUS
AND THE IMMORAL
Mr. Sweeney's Commlllcc Decides on a

Morgan Parkhurst Sweeney, chair
man, and his follow councllmen,
Thomas, Wenzol, Norton and Sheridan,
composing the vice anil Immorality
committee of common council, met for
the first time formally lost night nnd
with the door of their committee room
securely locked and bolted proceeded
to formulate a plan of usefulness.
The prime object of the meeting was
to take some action on the gambling
at the Driving park, but as the Infor
mation that the committee was taking
the matter in hand led Chief Rolling
to despatch Detective Moir to stop It
yesterdny, the committee was saved
tho trouble of considering It further.
At the conclusion of the meeting.
Chairman Sweeney stated that It had
beon decided to begin a rigorous cam
paign against certain evils, principally
the harboring of young girls in dlsor
deily houses and the maintaining of
Information against one notorious,
procurer Is now in tho hands of the
committee and it is proposed to begin
bv making an example of him. Wit
nesses will be summoned to give tes
timony before the committee next
Tuesday night nnd If a prima facie case
is made out the chief-of-pollce will bo
directed to prosecute him.
The committee has also received com
plaints from women that their hus
binds soend their time nnd earnings
in certain gambling houses and other
complaints have been leceived fiom
men who claim to have been swindled
in these places. These complaints will
receive due nttcntlon when the other
and more llagrant case is disposed of,
which will be In tho course of a few
weeks. It Is expected.
Mr. Sweeney, when asked If the com
mittee was directly responsible for the
closing of the pools at the Driving park,
made an evasive reply but when press
ed for a direct answer said "Well, yes,
you might say that It was."
Detective Moir says that the commit
tee did the deed. Yesterday morning
ho called upon the manager of the raceq
and st'ated that ho had received or
deis from Chief Robllng to stop tho
betting, and that Chief Robllng had
lieen advised to Issue the orders by the
vice and immorality committee.
Whether or not this Is tho correct
version cannot be positively stated but
at all events the pool-sellers and wheel-of-fortune
men did not attempt to do
business yesterday afternoon.
AN INJUSTICE CORRECTED.
Statement in Relation to an Articlo
Printed Monday, July 2S.
In The Trihune of July 2G, under tho
caption "Taylor Gill's Mishap," ap
peared an articlo describing the pur
ported loss by a young woman, resident
in Taylor, of an artificial limb, whilo
riding a bicycle. Tho article should
not, and If It had come under the eye
of the. editor would not have appeared,
because whether true or false It was
of a kind unsulted to The Tribune's
columns. It having come to our knowl
edge that the publication of the articlo
has caused annoyance to a worthy fam
ily in Taylor, and having convinced
ourselves that it was without founda
tion, we take this occasion to
express regret for Its publication. Tho
following letter explains itself;
Taylor, Pa., Aug. C, lb07.
To J. F. Taylor, Esq., Taylor, Pa.
My Dear Sir: I am tho author of thi
article appearing in tho Scranton Trib
une of date July 2(1, 1S97, and headed
"Taylor Girl's Mishap." I had In mind
In sal J. article your daughter. Miss Nelllo
Taylor. Thero was no foundation of
truth for said article and tho statements
contained therein, to tho cftoct that tho
friends of Miss Taylor contributed to
purchase her an artlllclal limb and thnt
she lost tho same while riding hpr bicycle,
nro absolutely false. I regret exceeding
ly that I suffered" myself to so falsify
about a very wcrthy young lady, and I
voluntarily make this statement, hoping
thus to make emends for tho Injury which
I havo done her. Very truly yours,
Emerson D. Owen.
WHAT THE PAVING WILL COST.
Approximate Assessment Is Com
pleted by City Engineer Phillips.
City Engineer Phillips yesterday
completed tho approximate estimate
of the assessments for the paving of
Mulberry street, and placed it in the
hands of City Treasurer Boland, who
will Immediately send out to tho prop
erty holders notices of what their as
sessments amount to.
The total estimate Is $00,950.18, but
as this Is figured on a basis of $2. CO
per square yard and tho paving ac
tually costs only $1.95, It can be seen
that the approximate estimate Is far
in excess of what tho pavement will
To arrive at the revised estimate or
real cost the approximate estimate
should be reduced twqnty-flvo per cent.
$1 93 being exactly three-fourths of
$2.60. Tho actual cost may even fall
lower than this proportion, and in the
approximate estimate the curbing and
other extra work is rated at a llguro
much higher than the contract price.
A property holder who receives no
tice that his approximate assessment
is $425 cun safely figure on not being
called upon to pay more than $300.
NO. 10 SCHOOL BUILDING.

Formality This Afternoon.

BITTEN BY A DOG.
The Terrible Experience of Miss May
Matthews, of the West Side,
Miss May Matthews, a 16-year-old
West Side girl, was severely bitten last
night by "Punch," a full-blooded bull
dog, owned by Victor Koch, proprietor
of the Scranton house. The dog was
shot immediately afterward.
The Matthews girl Is employed as a
messenger for one of the central city
milliners, and at 9.15 o'clock last night,
she reached the Koch residence on Mad
ison avenue with a package. Mrs.
Koch was tho only person In the house
at the time.
A negro, not long ago, rang the bell
and attempted to collect money at a
lato hour of the nlzht and when the
Matthews girl rang the door boll tast
night Mrs. Koch did not at first re
spond. She was slttlnu In the parlor
und romping around In tho same room
was tho bull dog. Finally she decided
to open the door and as she did so
Punch, the bull-dog, spying the big
bundle In the Matthews girl's arms,
sprang out and caught tho girl with
his teeth by tho right foot as the girl
was attempting to run away.
Mrs. Koch commanded the dog to de
sist but the brute had fastened his
teeth with a vice-like grip and would
not let go Several minutes passed, the
dog retaining his grip and the girl
screaming .fiom pain before help ar
rived In the person of Park Ofllcer Mc
Namana, who happened to be passing.
It was necessary to force tho hull dog's
Jaws from Its awful grip. The girl w as
taken In a seml-unconsclous condition
to Dr. L. M. Gates' office where Dr. N.
Y. Leet drr-ssed the wound.
The dog's teeth had penetrated the
Ehoo and sunk detply Into the flesh. Dr.
Leet applied precautionary medlclne3
to ward off hydrophobia. The girl was
removed to her home on North Main
avenue In a carriage.
Lieutenant Davis ordered that the dog
be dispatched which was done by two
bullets from Patrolman Jones' revol
ver. The dog was purchased when a pup
a few years ago by Mr. Koch for $25.
It was valued at $200. Mr. Koch read
ily gavo his consent to the death of

The regular monthly meeting of tho
managers for the Home for tho Friend
less was an interesting session yester
day. Mis Matthews presided. Much
of the time wns devoted to discussing
the new building. Inspector Nelson,
who is on the Inspection committee of
the board, rendered a completo report,
He had found the building most satis
factory. Fewer mistakes liad been
made than aro usually discovered in
public buildings. The committee had
found many admirable features In tho
arrangement of the Interior that de
served special mention and much cred
it was duo Architect E. H. Davis for
the splendid structure which Mr. Nelson
believed to be one of the finest of Its
kind In the country. Every conveni
ence possible has been planned nnd such
economy had been employed that but
little crltlcsm could be made.
Mr. Davis, the architect, then came
before tho board and gave the pleas
ant announcement that so near Is the
work completed the building can be oc
cupied in October. The plaster Is near
ly on and many other details are close
to the finish.
The furnishings of the new Home are
provided for to a large degree. Charles
Schlager will give all the hardware
needed In kitchen and laundry. The
old ladles' rooms will almost all be
equipped by kind friends who have al
ready signified their Intention of thus
contributing to the cause. The recep
tion rooms, sitting rooms, matrons'
apartments, dlnlnir rooms, etc., will,
however, afford ample space for the
generosity of Scranton's citizens to
ward their pet charity.
It is expected that the board will
have sompthlng very pleasant to dis
close In the way of a memorial gift In
the near future, but it should be re
membered that easy chairs, tables, beds

other articles will be gratefully receiv
