DOCTORS AND EDGE TOOLS
President of the Homeopnthists De
clares for Less Carving nnd More
Curing Appendicitis n Fad.
At the nnnual meeting ot tho Home
opathic Medical Soelety or Xorth
(astern Pennsylvania, hold last even
ing at the Speedway hotel on the boule
vard, the retiring president, Dr. J. A.
Hu lard, of Philadelphia, delivered an
nddress. In which he said some very
cutting things about thp allopaths.
After explaining that with tho aid of
n little list containing the names of a
few choice remedies and the different
diseases for which they are prescribed
by allopathic physicians, a frock cont,
n. silk hat nnd a pair of spectacles, the
ordinary layman could become the
peer of an allopathlst, the doctor made
ic ii'iiiuiks on uio prevailing fad
of operating for appendicitis.
"Tho fashion of opening the ab
domen, for Instance," said he, "and
cutting off the poor little appendix, for
tho cure of stomachache, Is an ex
ample of what I mean. While this fad
exists no one but those under home
opathic treatment, or those who are
poor and Industrious, can have a rea
sonable hope to escape the knife.
"From the cradle to the grave Its
victims are counted by hundreds. Do
not be tempted, I beg of you. either by
tho glitter of the fee or bv the adver
tisement. I claim that It Is both dis
honest and unprofessional to expose
your patient to needless danger and
expense, no matter how brilliant th"
cutting, or how considerable the 'wad.'
The best obtainable statistics show
conclusively that of all repotted cases
of operations for appendicitis, ninety
per cent, weie cleaily unnecessary,
and tho other ten per cent, doubtful
"Then, why, I nm asked. Is the oper
ation so pievalent, especially of late?
My reply Is, fashion, fear nnd greed.
A pertinent question aske 1 a loral sur
geon not long ago. was: 'Doctor, what
do you usually, find in tho nppenlec
tomjs you so frequently perfounV to
which, nftcr a moment' silence, ho
slowly replied, 'Oh, most anything
from J.'iO up.
"There h no guess vork about a
homoeopathlcally prcscrlt-ed remedy, it
is as positive in Its cmatlve action -is
were tha shells from Dewey's guns In
the harbor of Manila in their problem
"I simply wish to be recorded as
taking a rlimd for greater cc-nver-satlsni
In the professional use of edge
tools; in plain words, more curing
nnd less ran .tig, foi more construction
and less des miction, for less marring

The meeting was attenled bv a num
ber of physicians fur. Scranton,
Plttston and Wllkes-Prifi-e, and was
mainly of a social natuie, the onl
business tiensacted being the election
of oUleoiR for the coining year. Those

What the Conservatory Offers for
The results in the use of tho Fnelten
system of teaching piano at the Scran
ton Conservatory of Music this year
have excedeed the most sanguine ex
pectations. Witness, the many sue
cessful public recitals which have been
given. While being the most inspiring
nnd musically educative system ever
devised, the Faelten method Is, at the
same time, the least expensive. Where
ten pupils can nfford a first class
teacher under the old sytem, one hun
dred can afford Instruction under the
Faelten sytem and bo better taught In
the bargain; Your address on a pos
tal will secure the Conservatory book
let, "Piano Lessons," which tells about
the courses next year nt prices (note
them) ranging from thirty dollars per
year, with two hour lessons per week,
to one hundred and twenty dollars per
year, with six hour lessons per week.

TWO LICENSES ONLY
REVOCATION RULE CONTINUED
IN ALL OTHER CASES.
Men.'s Union Would Not Consent to a
Continuanco in the Cases of P. F.
Moran and T. F. Clark Seeing
That Revocation Was Inevitable,
tha Attorneys for Theso Two Par
ties Sought to Haye the Licenses
Transferred, but In Vain Deputy
Constable Ellman Removed.
As foreshadowed In The Tribune, the
rules for the revocation of liquor
licenses were yesterday contlnued.wlth
two exceptions, those In the cases of
P. F. Moran, of the Opera Cafe, Spruce
street, and Thomas F. Clark, of tho
Lyceum Cafe, Wyoming avenue, com
monly called the "Sour Pickle."
The representatives of the Men's
union would give no quarter In these
two cases. Moran, It was alleged, was
selling liquor on Sunday right along,
refused to desist when wnrned, nnd
attempted to assault Agent Ilobert
Wilson. Attorney Clarence Unlcntlne
wanted court to transfer the license to
Thomas F. lloche. Court took the peti
tion under consideration, but Intimated
strongly that If Mr. lloche got the
license It would be as a new applicant.
The testimony against Moran was
given by the unions regular agents,
Robert Wilson, George West and James
Held. Sundny, May 20, was the date
they made their visit.
In tho CInrk case, nn effort was
made by Attorney George S. Horn to
have the rule continued to give the
landlord, Mrs. McIIugh-Hand, an op
portunity to have the license trans
ferred to her. Court said no, and said
It with emphasis.
I.attlmer Keese and Frank Astrlngcr
gave the testimony against Clark.
They said they were there on a Sun
day, bought drink, saw a large crowd
there drinking and carousing, and that
tho place, was a common resort for
lewd women. Evidence wns also of
fered to show that liquor was sold
there only last Sundny.
The rule in the Francis Hafller case
was continued only after some special
agreement was reached.
In the other sixteen cases the con
tinuances were granted with the under
standing, ns explained nt length In yes
terday's Tribune, that the proprietors
will not only obey the law themselves,
but use their honest and best endeav
ors to compel others to do likewise.
A close watch will be kept on these
places, and the slightest offense will
result In the rule being called up for
Division of Mooslc Borough.
Court yesterday granted a peremp
tory mandamus directing Street Com
missioner Holand D. Thomas to grant
a permit to Mrs. II. C. Mott to con
nect her ptoperty on Main avenue with
the" city sewer.
This Is the end of a dispute that has
been hnnglng lire for eleven years.
Under the ordinance the street com
missioner is directed to refuse a per
mit te any party not having tho as
sessment paid. Mrs. Mott had seven
lots and paid $1,300 In assessments.
Five years ago she connected one of
her properties with the sewer, and
last year she proceeded to connect an
other, but wns forbidden by the com
missioner, on the ground that her as
sessment had not been nil paid.
The case was arbitrated and It was
decide 1 that Mrs. Mott still owed $."0.
She settled this and renewed her ap
plication for a permit. It was refused
and she went Into court 'to secure a.
Attorney W. J. Hind, who repre
sented the relator, attacked the clause
of oidlnance piovldlng for tho with
holding of the permit until the as
sessment was paid, on the ground that
It attempted to create a new and
drasl le method of collecting taxes.

The presentation was made May 7, ns

The township solicitor, M. J. Dona
hoe, and Attorney W. J. Hnnd, repre
senting certain property holders, ex
cepted to tho sufficiency of the notlco
on this nnd other grounds, nnd when
tho matter came up for hearing, yes
terday, court sustained their excep
tions. Prior to the passage of tho Act of
1895, the appearance of tho parties was
taken to be n wnlver of any Insufllcl
ency of notice. In the Pyno borough
case, Judge Archbald, Interpreting this
feature of tho net for the first time,
held that any Insufllclency of notice
was fatal to tho application, and could
not be cured by the appearance of tho
parties sought to be notified. In pri
vate civil proceedings this rule might
prevail, but In a public affair, such as
the Incorporation of a borough, the ap
pearance of the respondent parties
could not bo rightly construed by court
to amount to a waiver.
This position was widely nt variance
with all previous rulings, and theie
was much speculation as to whether or
not It would stand. That speculation,
however, Is now at rest. In the Lin
ton borough case the Superior court
recently made n similar decision, and
Its finding was based on the same line
of reasoning pursued by Judge Arch
bald, whose decision wns mnlnly relied
upon by the successful parties In their

SIX GRADUATES OF
SCHOOL FOR NURSES
INTERESTING EVENT AT ST.
LUKE'S TARISH HOUSE.
Annual Exorcises Attendant Upon
tho Commencement of the Training
School for Nurses of the Lacka
wanna Hospital Conducted Last
Night Addresses Were Made by
Judgo H. M. Edwards nnd Dr. J.
L. Ren Diplomas Were Presented
by President J. T. Dickson, of the
Board of Directors.
For the sixth time In Its history tho
training school connected with the
Lnckawanna hospital last night sent
out a class of bright, earnest and thor
oughly trained young women, who
have chosen as their life work one of
the noblest of all professions, tho nurs
ing of the sick. The class graduated
last night consists of six young women,
Miss Mary Agnes Doherty, Miss Emily
Katherlne Gamewell, Miss Elizabeth
Ely, Miss Carrie Olive Crlssman, Miss
Julia Agnes Twarowskl and Miss Hose
The exercises were conducted In the
beautiful auditorium of St. Luke's Par
ish house. The bright and cheery
looking stago was prettily decorated
with llowers and potted palms, and
presented a delightful appearance. Di
rectly In front of the stage was seated
the entire nursing force of the hospital,
the members of the graduating class
occupying the front row.
The exercises were opened by prayer
by Itev Rogers Israel, D. D., rector of
St. Luke's. J. P. Dickson, president
of the hospital, who presided during
tho evening, then Introduced Judge II.
M. Edwards, who made one of his
usual witty nnd clever addresses. He
dwelt In particular upon the place and
advantages of the hospital In a com
munity and emphasized tho fact that
the people of Scranton do not do their
duty towards the Lackawanna hospi
tal. "The legislature of this state," said
he, "must be taught to economize on
expenditures which can stand economy
and not pinch so that the charitable In
stitutions will be made to suffer. There
are two things In Pennsylvania which
must be taken enre of above nil others
and those are the common schools and
the charitable Institutions."
In concluding he nddressed the grad
uates and congratulated them on the
showing made. "Yours," said he, "Is
a gospel of servitude and n gospel of
patience, and not a gospel of words."
Dr. Jnmcs L. Rea, one of the mem
bers of the staff, was the next speaker,
nnd, though the doctor remarked that
he felt a little shakv and that like
Marc Anthony, he was no orator, nev
ertheless he made a most hapny little
address In a rather eiualnt manner.
He urged the nurses to studv so '-hat
they could get above the crowd and
not lag at the bottom.
DR. RKAS ADVICE.
"You'll not find It a bit crowded up
there," said he. "He practical, for prac
tical talent Is the only substantial basis
for any profession. Be optimistic. Look
at things brightly, and If tliete's no
light side, polish up the dark side.
Don't depend upon the Influence and
pull of your friends to get along, for
no nurse ever succeeded by the3o
means. Keep your moral tone high,
the higher the better, nnd, above all
else, cultivate dose mouths."
Before presenting the dlplomas.Presi
dent Dlcl'son made a statement, tend
ing to offset the adverse criticism ot
the debt which is now standing against
the hospital. Ho explained that th-
state appropriation was only $15,000
this year, leaving $S,000 to be raised
from local sources. The present debt
of $19,000 has been created In several
ways. Part of It accrues from the fact
that $7,500 was paid for a nurses' home
and Jl.fiOO for furnishing It.
In the course of a statement of tho
enormous expense under which the
hospital Is laboring, Mr. Dickson men
tioned the fact that the Scranton (las
nnd Water company recently placed n
water meter In the Institution, thereby
raising the water rent from $10 to $10
a month on a jump.
In concluding, he paid a graceful
tribute to Mrs. E. N. Wlllard, whom
he spoke of as the guiding angel of the
hospital. "There Is never n day," ho
stated, "whether tho weather Is good
or bad, when this noble woman Is not
at the hospital, cheeilng up the suf
fering "ones. Some days she brings
flowers, some days dainty eatables,
and on all days something."
He then presented the members of
the graduating class with their diplo
mas and badges, after which nn In
formal reception was held, during the
course of which dainty refreshments
