Henry Bellamy's new book, "Equal
ity," contains one prognostication
which will appeal to the race of wo
mankind looking out upon tills Monday
morning with more or less painful an
ticipations, In which visions of a cha
otic kitchen, heaps ot unwashed dishes
and possibly a maid of a lowering brow
are among the chief features.
Mr. Bellamy's theory Is -that in tbo
Twentieth century "wash diy" will be
nn unknown terror, as paper will have
taken the place of wash linen and cel
lars. We shall then wear a prtty
gown until It Is soiled and instead of
sending It away to the laundry to be
ruined It will be packed off to the
manufactory to ba made oer Into pulp
Knd perhaps come back to us In a new
pattern. Household linen and all rts
of underwear will then be treated in
the same way. Sheets, pillow-slips,
etc., will no doubt be made with hem,
but Mr. Bellamy's plan seems a little
wobbly when It comes to gnvvns. The
magnitude of wash frocks Is not the
expense of materials, but thj cost of
making. Won't the dressmakers havo
a mlllenlum under the Twentieth cen
tury dispensation? Imagine h.ivlng a
new white gown made every time the
last one Is soiled!

Employes of tho street commission
er's department, with the one excep
tion of ofllco clerk, will work but eight
hours a day hereafter. City Solicitor
McGlnley, In answer to Mr. Dunnlng's
request for nn opinion as to whether
or not the eight hour law affected his
department, on Saturday replied as
August 23, 189".
Mr. A. B. Dunning,
Street Commissioner, Scranton, Pa.
Dear sir Replying to your communi
cation of tho 28th Instant, requesting
an opinion regarding act of nsscmbly
approved July 26. 1SD7, known as the Farr
eight hour law, would say that tho act
provides that eight hours shall constltuto
a legal day's work for mechanics, work-
men and laborers In tho omply of tho
state, or any municipal corporation
therein, or otherwise engaged on public
Tho persons employed In your depart
ment, with tho exception of clerk, aro
within tho Intent and meaning of this
law. Under its provisions, eight hours
constltuto a legal day's work, upon which
basis tho persons employed by you, with
tho exception aforesaid, aro entitled to
piy at tho regular per diem r.ito.
Very respectfully yours,
M . A. McGlnley,
City Engineer Phillips, who had made
a similar request concerning the men
In his department, received the follow
ing opinion from the city solicitor:
August 2S. U9T.
Mr. Joseph P. Phillips, City Engineer.
Dear Sir: In answer to your noto of
tho 9th Instant Inquiring if tho men In
your department, assistant engineers,
draughtsmen, clerks, rodmen, chalnmen
nnd inspectors on public works, como
within tho provisions of the Farr act,
npprovel tho 2Cth day of July, 1S97, would
say that tlio act provides, "That on and
after tho passago of this act eight hours
out of tho twenty-four of each day bhall
make and constltuto a legal day's work
for mechanics, workmen and laborers In
the employ of the state, or any munici
pal corporation therein or otherwise en
gaged on public works."
Tho only question that need be consid
ered In replying to your communication
Is whether tho men In your department
may bo properly termed mechanics,
workmen or laborers. If they may be,
then tho act arpllcs to them and eight
hours would constltuto a legal day's
work; If they may not bo so tcrmeJ,
then they aro not Included In the classes
Intended to bo reached by this law.
A mechanic Is ono skilled In the me
chanical arts, or exercising a mecnanical
employment; ono Avhoso occupation con
sists In tho systematic manipulation and
constructive shaping of materials, wood,
metal, etc.: artificers, artisans or crafts,
men. It Implies special training and Is
therefore inapplicable to unskilled labor
ers, though they may bo engaged In con
A workman is deilned as one who works;
one employed In any labor, especially
A laborer is on who labors in a toll
somo occupation; ono regularly employed
at some hard work, often used of one
who gets a livelihood at coarse, manual
labor, as distinguished from an artisan
or professional man. It Is generally ac
cepted that tho terms "laborer" and
"workman" aro Intended to Include only
such persons as aro engaged In manual
Engineering Is tho art of constructing
and using engines or machines; tho art
of executing civil or military works which
require a special knowledgo or uso cf
machinery, or tho principles of mechan
ics. Art Is tho combination or modification
of things to adopt them to a given end;
the employment of given means to effect
a purpose. It Is skill, dexterity, an es
pecial facility In performing any opera
tion, Intelectual or physical, acquired ly
experience or study. Tho object of sci
ence Is knowledge; tho objects of art are
works. In art, truth Is tho means to an
end; in science, It Is only the end.
Civil engineering Is that branch of en
gineering which relates to tho construc
tion or care of roads, bridges, railroads,
canals, aqueducts, harbors, drainage
works, etc. All men In your department
como within this classification. Under
tho above definitions, may they bo desig
nated "mechanics," "workmen" or "la
borers?" I think not.
Tho case of Pennsylvania and Dela
waro Railroad company vs. Leuffer, 84
Pa. 1C8, contains a similar proposition to
the one under discussion. Leuffer was a
civil engineer, and brought suit against
tho company for the value of services
rendered. The only question Involved was
whether a civil engineer was a "labor
er" or "workman" within the meaning
of tho resolution of January 21, 1S13, P.
L. 307. Justlco Gordon In delivering tho
opinion of tho supremo court, Inter alia,
said: "Wo aro to Inquire what the legis
lature Intended by tho use of these words.
In seeking for the leguslature's Intent wo
must give to tho language of tho statute
Its common nnd ordinary signification.
But ordinarily these words cannot bo un
derstood as embracing persons engaged In
the learned professions, but rather such
as gain their livelihood by manual toll.
When wo speak of tho laboring or work
ing classes, wo certainly do not Intend
to Include therein persons llko civil engi
neers, tho value of whose services rests
rather In their scientific than ir, their
physical ability. Wo thereby Intend thoso
who aro engaged, not In head, but In hand
work, and who depend upon such hand
work for their living. It Is true, In one
sense, the engineer Is a laborer; but so
Is the lawyer nnd tho doctor, tho banker
and corporation officer, yet no statistician
has been known to include them among
the laboring classes."
In my opinion tho provisions of the act
of assembly known as tho Farr act do
not apply to tho aforementioned persons
employed in your department.

seen concerning the decision, said he
would' put the men on eight-hour time

cerning the matter of back pay until

city solicitor was as follows:

concerning back pay Is not at all sat

ruling on this point. He, hlmself.would

tingly distinguished Its entrance among
numerous similar societies by a public
meeting at Music Hall and a picnic

the reception of President Carluccl's
gifts to the society. Twoi beautiful
flags 4x6 feet and representing tho
United States and Italy, were present
ed by Dr. Vllllone, In behalf of tho
president. The doctor spoke with en
thusiasm. He touched upon the bond
of attachment the sons of Italy had
for their mother country and urged
the strongest support for their adopt
ed land, .the country of the "stars and
stripes." The Hags were then dedi
cated with the assistance of two little
flower girls, who strewed tho fragrant
blossoms upon the beautiful emblems.
JUDGE EDWARDS' ADDRESS.
Judge Edwards addressed tho so
ciety and expressed his regret at not
being able to use the Italian language.
However, Judging from the gestures
of Dr. Vllllone though his words were
uttered In a strange tongue, ho felt
that tho left band pointed to the flag
of sunny Italy meant heart love, while
tho right hand extended toward the
emblem of tho union Indicated sup
port. Tho speaker then reviewed tho na
tional history of Italy,, mentioning
some of her greatest sons and then
spoke of the necessity of his hearers
In acquainting themselves with Ameri
can laws and Institutions In order to
become the best of citizens, thus up
holding the fame of their mother coun

Great applauso followed the judge's

his pleasure In being honored with an
Invitation. His sympathy was with a
society which had banded together
with such splendid purposes. Joseph
Cassesse, Frank Carluccl, Domlnlco
Pesanti and Antonla Confitanzoj, of
Old Forge, also spoke. A rising vote
of thanks was extended to the society's
The society headed by the bands then
marched about tho city and went to
Wahler's grove, where a most enjoyable
afternoon and evening was spent.
