"Second-On the 2d day of August.
1S, the city of Scranton passed an
ordlnaive providing; for paving Mul
berry street from Mitllln avenue to
Prescotl avenue. A copy of said ordi
nance Is hereto attached and made a
part hereof. There Is also attached
(i copy of the petition of the ubuttlns
property owners who asked for the
"Third Tho preliminary and final as

made by the City Engineer by a uni

railway companies, or for the street
Intersections. A cosy of said assess

"Fourth Mulberry street from Mif
flin to Prescott avenue Is of a uniform
width of ihlrU -four feet between curb
lines and Is partly occupied by street
railway tracks as shown by the blue
map hereto attached. The portion of
the street occupied 'by the street rail
way companies, both between their
rails nnd between their tracks, was
paved by sail companies with brick,
nt their own expense, this having been
one of the conditions upon which they
were allowed by the city to occupy the
street On that portion of the street
between Penn and Wyoming avenues
the street railway company was also
required to pave a space one foot wide

street railway company has a double
track road, occupying between Its outer
rails a space of fourteen and one
fourth feet of the width of tho center
of the street along the entire frontage
of defendant's lot; which space was
paved with brick by said company at
Its own expense and with the approval
bf the city of Scranton, before the
asphalt under this contract was laid.

"Sixth The total number of square
yards of asphalt pave laid under this
contract, a copy of which is hereto at
tached, Is 17,L'S'.l.87 and the average cost
per yard Is $1.03, which includes all the
expenses claimed by the city to be
assessable to the abutting' property
"Seventh Tho asphalt pave laid in
front of defendant's lot by the city of
Scranton under this contract Is a strip
nine feet and nine Inches In width by
eighty feet In length and containing
Oil L'-S square yards. The assessment
laid on defendant's said lot for the
paving done under said contract Is JSj-'G;
this result having been arrived at by
taking the total cost of the asphalt
pave laid under this contract and ap
portioning It equally on the total abut
ting frontage per foot without regard
to the amount of pave nctually laid In
front of each lot. On portions of the
street where no street railway track
Is laid there was laid by the city under

case, tho court shall be of opinion that
the plaintiff Is entitled to jecelve and
collect from defendant the sum of $L'SC
a-? an assessment for said pavement,
then judgment with costs to be entered
against defendant for that sum.
"Hut If tho court be of opinion that
defendant Is only liable for the amount
of pavement nctually laid by the city
under this contiacf In front of his
property, then Judgment to be entered
for plaintiff fur $101.03 without costs.
PAVING OF INTERSECTIONS.
"If the court shall be of opinion that
In addition to the asphult laid In front

a proportionate share of the cost of
paving the intersections paved under

right to appeal to the Supreme or

In tho petition for paving It Is ex
pllcltly set forth "that the .space be.
tween tho car tracks, for which tho
street car company shall pay, shall bo
deducted from the assessments equally
on both sides of said street."
The objecting property holders claim
It was understood that the properties
which had tho Inconvenience of trucks
In front of them, should derive the
benefit resulting1 from the company he
lnt; compelled to stand for the paving
between them. That properties whlchj
have no tracks In front of tlvem should
receive as much benellt from tho Trac

Should the objector win It means

THE PASSINQ OP THE INDIAN.
fiCcturo of Dr. Dixon nt tho Penn
Avenno llnptlst Church.
Probably the finest lllustrnted lec
ture ever clven In Scranton wn that
of last evening at Penn Avenue Bap
tist church, delivered by tho pastor,
Hcv. Joseph K. Dixon, D. D., on "The
Pusslns of tho Indian."
Much time and research has been
spent on the subject matter of this
lecture, nnd no expense has been
spared In securing data and costly pic
tures. Dr. Dixon recently visited Wash
ington nnd devoted several days to a
close study of curios and photographs,
whose authenticity, no less than' their
artistic value give them wonderful In
terest. They were all exquisitely col
ored and In many cases displayed tho
loveliness of praise nnd mountain scen
ery In brilliant reality.
The lecture opened with a rapid rc
lev of the discovery of America, de
scribing the crippled vessel of the lit
tle licet and noting tho fact that no
Indian took advantage of tho disas
ter for spoil or destruction of life. The
famous picture of Columbus planting
rho standard was shown In nil Its rich
The speaker then referred to the vast
dUslmllnrlty existing among the North
American Indians, their two or three
hundred languages and the supposition
that all had sprung from one stock.
Massasolt and tho French and In
dian wars were brlelly noted, and a
spirited picture of Indian warfare was
shown. Tho one conspicuous exception
to the constant carnage, nnd shinning
like a utar In the night was William
Penn, who made with them tho only
treaty never sworn to and never brok
en, The Quaker coat and hat proved
a better protection than a coat of mail.
A graphic description of .tho woeful
life of an Indian woman under her
hard task master was given. Among
the series of pictures rapidly shown
were many characteristic scenes of na
General Crook, whom tho speaker
designated as having "precipitated
many wars In order that he might wear
more stars." General Miles, who, he
said had been fully as treacherous at
times as the Indian, nnd noble Jack
Custer were shown, as were many
bloody battle scenes on the frontier.
The llnal pictures given were burial
scenes and customs. A poetically
beautiful one being that of an Indian
mother launching the tiny canoe con
taining her dead little baby In his last
The lecture was throughout one of
Intense Interest, nnd It Is to be hoped
that Dr. Dixon will repeat it to a far
larger audience. It Is one which ev
