FRAUDS WHO SEEK RELIEF. They Should Be Sunt to the Agent of tbe Associated Charities. Tbe following communication lias been given to the press of tbe city for the benefit of the pnblio by the Board of Associated Charities: . Scranton. Pa. Aug. 23, 1894. To Ue Public: In our investigations we ilnd that there are nt present m the city a number of per sons who are making an easy living by imposing on the charitable public. They have many picas, all calculated to excite sympathy and disarm suspicion. They are not ordinary tramps altogether some are ' young men trying to raise means to help them through college," some "sick persons recently discharged from hospitals," some "victims of acci dents wanting to got to friends in other places,'' with many other stories of the same kind. In nearly all cases they are frauds, and in some cases thieves, and it would be better that none should be aided before their cases have been investigated. We would suggest tbat instead of feodiug them or giving them clothing or shoes, that they be sent to our agent in the Mu nicipal building, who will see that they are assisted if found worthy.

John L Blair, tbe New Jersey multi millionaire, who is well known in this city.celebrated his ninety-second birth day at his homo in Blairstown on Wed nesday. There was no foriml function of any kind, as Mr. Blair's physicians have forbidden anything calculated to excite him. Several friends called to offer congratulation and tho old gen tleman laughed and joked with them. Since May 1, when Mr. Blnir wns first confined to his honse by illnesi, he hflg been compelled to refrain from his trips to New York and elsewhere. His only exercise has been a daily walk on tbe large porch of bis old home, "Blair hill," which overlooks Blairstown, and commands a fine view of the Paulins Kill Valley. Mr. Blair's physicians any that with oare he may live to celebrate several more anniversaries of his birth. ANTHONY OOUGH INJURED. It Is Probable That Throe Fingers Will Have to Ee Amputated.

At the Moses Taylor hospital, Where he was taken for treatment, it was found tbat the hand was badly lacer ated, bones crushed and that in all probability three fingers will have to be amputated. LOCAL INDUSTRIAL NOTES. The repairs at the Green Ridge Glass works begun early in July are Hearing completion. This has been a good snmmer for me chanics who are identified with the build ing trade, aud it anticipated tbat the com ing winter will be tbe briskest in building circles of any for years. Labor Day, Saturday, Sept 1, will be observed with a big demonstration at Mountain park. General Coxey, late commander-in-chief of the army of the commonweal, is expected to deliver an address. The collieries of the Greenwood Coal company have not averaged a total of five shifts so far this month, tbe poorest time made in the history of the works. Superin tendent Lovering. however, states that in his opinion the coal trade cannot continue to keep so. dull. The rumor that the Lehigh Valley Rail road company speaks of extending its road from Avoca to the West Side of the city, taxing in tne towns or Uuryen, Mooslc, Old Forge and Taylor, is every now and then revived by the presence of surveyors in the vicinity of Taylor. A recent rumor made the people of that town believe that a new railroad was about to be projected through it, when the reality was that the civil englueers were merely re-adjusting the lines of a few tracts of farm land. The output of steel rails per week at tbe Sonlh works of the Lackawanna Iron aud Stoel company keeps on increasing by small margins. The total amount or fin ished rails for the week endod Aug. 18 was 6.72 tons and 11 cwt. The record of the previous week fell but a few tons short of this, tbe scales showing a total of 6.700 tons, IS owt. of rails. For the week end ing tomorrow night the management does not anticipate any record breaking on ao count of the run of hard luck tbat Iibs pur sued the mill during tbe week. But it will be the aim of the management and employes to strive and in the near future produce a record for one week's work that will top 0,000 tons. , 1 City Engineer Phillips Does Not Loci with Favor on Competitive Idea. THINKS THERE IS A SilEItlE IN IT Why It Would Be an Advantage to a Bridge Company to Have Its Plan Adopted Reason Why Mayor Con nell Vetoed the Competitive Plan Resolution Select Council Not in Favor of the Scheme. City Engineer Phillips, ns can be surmised, does not look with favor upon the project of the common council to secure competitive plajs for the bridges atter he has submitted his plans. He charactsri7.es the movo ns a scheme of tbe King Bridge company. If any of the big brUge companies could succeed in having its own plans adopted, and then secures the contract for the construction of the bridges, it is apparent tbat the bridge will be built according to tbe ideas of the bridge company and uot after the plans of the city. Mr. Phillips claims to have consulted the best standard bridge specifications to be had, besides being in coustant consultation with the engineers of the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western and Jersey Central railroads. His plans he is ready to submit to tbe scrutiny ot the most exactiug bridge expert tbat the mayor may select, as is providod iu the ordinance. It is no matter of per sonal pique that prompts him to dis favor the oommon council's plan, but a conscientious regard for the city's wel fare. THE MAYOR'S VETO. The movement for the securing of competitive plans was first started four months ago, but the resolution provid iugtherefor was vetoed by the mayor for reasons made apparent iu the follow ing communication sent to councils at that time: April 213, 1894. To the Select and Common Councils, Scran ton, Pa.: Gentlemen: I most respectfully return without my approval the resolution which authorizes the city clerk to solicit com petitive plans for the proposed bridges over the Lackawanna river and Roaring brook, as it does not provide for tho repeal of the resolution adopted by your honorable bodies March 8, 1S1I4, which provides that the city engineer shall prepare and perfect the plans and specltlcatious for the pro posed bridges and tbat the city clerk shall advertise for sealed proposals for the same. Very truly yours. W. L. Connull, Mayor. No steps were taken to revive the project until two weeks ago, when common conncil got hold of tho bridges ordinances aud lied them up in com mittee until the competitive plan scheme should be acted upon. Select council's streets and bridges committee at Monday night's meeting decided to report adversely upon tho scheme for the reason that it is too lato a day to take the matter into consideration. The common councilman who favor tho scheme for competitive plans aay that they are actuated only by the best interests, but the city engineer inti mates tbat there are other motives. Between the oross fires, the bridges ordinances may experience a delay which will bring down unfavorable criticism upon the oity authorities.and may lead to something in the sensa tional developement line. There was a hot time in common council last night over the bridge plans, ihere were two very apparent factions at work, the one headed by Messrs. Battle and Sweeney and the other uuder the guidance of Mr. Roche, of select eouncil, who car ried ou his battle from the spec tators enclosure. The Battle- Sweeney people are fighting tbe plans submitted by the city engineer, claiming that they were made by the Pottsville Iron and Bridge company, and Mr. Roohe fights the substitution of any other plans, fearing tbat some bridge company will be pluced iu a po sition to bid on its own plans, all of which would tend to the city s danger of having foisted upon us a bridue company's ideas of a bridge and not the city engineer's. mk. m'lean amendkd. The ball was opened when ths Roar- ing Brook bridge ordinance cams up ou second reading. Mr. McLean made some slight amendments to the section providing for the paving of tbe ap proaches, after which Mr. Buttle sub mitted au Amendment summarily, ns touows: "in addition to tne city en gineer's plans the competing bridge companies shall be required to bid upon a assign or their own, in accord ance with the gsneral plans and speci fications attached to the ordinance and provided by the city engineer. He nlso offered amendments provid ing that the brldgs be completed within soven months after the date of the con tract instead of tan months as now provided by the ordinance. "That will crowd out tbe small fry companies,1' remarked Air. noaiis to tub Tribune reporter. Mr. Moir said he was neither for nor agninet tbe amendments, but ha could not see what was to be gained by adout- ing them. "We will get so tangled up, saiu Mr. Moir, "that we will not have any bridges at all. We now have a set of -plans that are intelligible to any bridge builder, and even if we should get twenty or thirty sets of plans before us, what will we do? I know as much as any member of the streets and bridges committee does about bridges and I don t kuow any thing. I can't get it into my bead how we are going, to be benefitted by thoso amendments. " Mr. Battle arose to explain for Mr. Moir's benefit and said: "The citv engineer's plan may be as good ns it is possible to conceive, but isn t It well to have tbe brains of the bridue build ers of the country to aid us. We don't have to acoept those competitive Diana unless we wish to. We have an expert provided to direct ni in this matter. WOULD CAUSE NO DELAY. Mr. Battle in response to Mr. Noon's allegation , that these amendments would cause a delay, stated that such would not be the case. All tbe plans would have to be in the expert's hands at tbe tarns time that he would be ready to net upon the city engineer's plans. Continuing, be said: ''One par ticular cringe company nas been fa vored in the making of tbe plans. I believe in giving them all a show." Mr. Howe "We don t have to ao outside the city to have our plans msue. Mr. Sweeney "I bsg to differ with the gentlemen. We had to in this case." Mr. Moir "When we have twenty or thirty bridge plans before ts, it will De a question oi wnich company has the most glib tongned agent One of them might come around and sweet heart me into believing that he was a good fellow and I thinking bis plans to to be tbe best might vote for him." On motion of Mr. Moir this amend ment for eompetive plans was laid on the table nnd other amendments adopt ed. Tbe Linden street ordinaucs re ceived the sauie treatment, r EXCITING GAME OF ALLEY BALL It Was Flayed at Carbondule on Wednesday. An interesting game of alley ball was played Wednesday nt McAnulty's alley, Carbondale. for $j0 a side, be tween Williiim Kennedy, of Price bnrir, and John Elgy, of Duryea, on the one side, and Joseph Bowden. of Jessup, and James Csllaghan, of May field, on the other. There was great interest taken in the four players by their supporters, and over a thousand spectators witnessed tbe game, which wbs the best ever played in Carbon dale. Much money changed hands. The game was very close until half of the game. When Bowden and his partner took their ball iu it seemed to favor Kennedy and his partner, who took the lead and kept it to the end. Score: Kennedy aud Elgy, 31; Bowden and Callaghan, 13. The conditions of the match is en home and home game, 61 points up; 31 points to be played at Carbondale and 30 points at Thomas Logan's alley, Prioeburg.

Two Youngsters Just Entering Their Teens Caught Robbing a Money Drawer in Jones' Tea Store. A tolephone message to police head quarters yesterday announced that two thieves had been onptured la Jones Bros.' tea store on Lackawanna, uvenue, and that they were being held there. Officer Lowry, who responded to the summons, was surprised to find in the thieves two urchins, neither over 12 years of age. They had entored the store without attracting attention, and when the cashier left his post tnr a few moments, one of them slipped behind the counter and helped himself to the contents of the till. One of tbe clerks saw the lad as he was creeping from behind the counter and succeeded in barring the doorway before either of them could escape. When the lads were searched $1.23 was found in their possession. The officer took theui to the station house, but as they cried as it they would go into hysterics at the sight of tbe iron cells, it was decided to lock them up in one of the vacant rooms in the basement They, bow ever, continued to cry without cessa tion, and created no end of annoyance by tbe din they created, They gave their names as Kirkpit rick, and told the officer that tueir mother was a widow with five chil dren. This statement was afteward verified. Tbe boys are being held un til a proper dispensation of their case can be decided upon. NEW NO. 12 SCHOOL BUILDING.
