Judge (iuusler Hand lowu His Opinion with Kefercure to It. Judge tiiinster handed down nn opin ion yesterday in the injunrliou pro oe.'iliiigM of the Delaware and Hudson Kuilroad company against the Lacka wanna Valley Traction company und theolyphunt Suburban Traction com pany, and iu It he allows to cross the gravity tracks at grade, but a subway or ii viaduct must be constructed ut the steam railroad crossing. He says: "This case Is, no doubt, of more than ordinary importance. It involves not one. but live railroad crossings. Oly pliant Is a thrifty and growing com munity. The traffic through the bo rough over the plaintiff's steam fond Is rapidly increasing, and the travel on tin1 defendant's road, when completed, will undoubtedly be large and Increase In time. tirade crossings once per mitted and established are to all in tents anil purposes established for all time. Overhead or underneath cross ing! are, no doubt, more expensive hut experience ought to teach us that In the end they are a great saving of life and limb." The defendants submitted this point: "The evidence in this case shows that the Scranton Traction company's sys tem ot street railways has 't'i grade crossings over steam railroad track and that they carry over them seven million passengers a year, and there has never been a passenger killed or injured at one of these grade cross ings." His answer to this was: "I find as requested, but it is a mutter of general knowledge that persons have been in jured and killed at similar cro-'sings, and it is not only the letter, but the spirit of the law that they be prohib ited w here they can be with reasonable practicability." The opinion is a lengthy one and covers enough of pages of legal cop tn make a page of reading matter in a newspaper. It required a week to try the case. In conclusion. Judge tlun ster says: "In my opinion the defendants should be permitted to cross the gravity road til grade, under proper regulations us to safety, grades, etc., and that In case they can obtain the right of way so far as the plaintiffs own or control .the land necessary for same, free of charge, and so far as the same is uwncd by other parties at prices named in th options which the plaintiffs hold, they shot'd be restrained from crossing the steam road at grade, and that, if the defendants deem it advisable to adopt the route along the plaintiff's steam r ad on the westerly side of the tracks, the plaintiffs should be required, at the xpense of the defendants, to acquire this triangular piece of land winch may be necessary to make sutticieut room for said crossing, aud that the defend ants should pay the costs."

The Providence und Ahiuglon Turn pike company's bill for repairs on West .Market street from the time the famous suit was brought until the present, was submit led to the auditing commit lee of councils last night. It amounts to $I.H."t.ti2. or this amount $7?.'i.S2 is for the repairs done from August, IMH', to January, I mi.'., und for the settlement of two small damage suits resulting from the road being in bad repair. The re pairs made last month are ligurcd ut $lii7.M. Interest is computed at $l7a.6ii. The bill was submitted at a previous meeting, but objected to because it was not itemized. The present bill gives the nunie of every man who was en gaged In the repairs together with the number of days winked in each month and rate of wattes. It was referred to City Solicitor Torrey and S. B. Price, tlie special attorney in the turnpike mutter. Chief Hickey's absence from the city was indirectly the cause of all the lire department bills laying over for two weeks. The chief before going away with the Crystals turned the hills over to the chairman of the tire department committee. Fred Dttrr. with the request thut he would submit them to the aud iting committee. Mr. Durr on the way up lust night st ot. ied to argue the sil ver question and when he got to the City. hall he found that the committee had adjourned.

Mr. and Mrs. Pen nington were assisted in receiving by Miss Catharine Timberman and Mr. and Mrs. Thiele, who were introduced to a large number of Scranton's repre sentative people, including some of the leading musicians. An admirably ar ranged musical programme was pre sented including songs by Miss Timber man and Mrs. Thiele and instrumental selections by Mr. Thiele and Mr. Pen nington. Miss Timberman again charmed her listeners, her rich noble voice appearing at its best in the ora torio number, "O, Thou that Tellest (loud Tidings," from the Messiah, and the extremely dramatic "Song of the Tiger," from "Paul and Virginia." Of the excellence of Mr. Pennington's work both at the piano and organ it is unnecessary to speak. Mr. and Mrs. Thiele were heard in this muslcale for the first time since making this city their home, and it is a pleasure to say that in them Scranton has gained an admirable soprano and violinist. Mrs. Thiele gave much pleasure to all her solos, notably in the delightful "Spring Song." of Weil, with violin obllgato. Mr. Thlele's work was that of a thor oughly conscientious artist. On the whole the musicule was a decided suc cess. BARLOW BROTHERS' MINSTRELS.
