Richard Little, of Scrantoninn, and John G. Jennings and Mr. Smith, Alleged to Be Parties Inter ested in Attacks on Court. "I decline to answer." That was thi substance of the tes timony offered Saturday by Hlchard Little, editor of the Scrnntonlnn, the paper which has for some time charged the court with Improperly declining to reinstate Cornelius Smith to member- whip In the Lackawanna bar. Mr. Lit tle was a witness summoned to appear in the olllee of "Wells & Torrey, before 11. II. Coston, commissioner In the mat ter of the application of Mr. Smith for reinstatement. Attorneys K. C. Newromh, 8. B. Price and J, II, Torrey were the appearances for tho committee appointed by the court, and Mr. Smith for himself. Mr. Smith objected to tho proceedings on the ground that there was no rule of court, and that a proper notice had not been served on the petitioner. Hdltor Little was the first witnes". Ho admitted beliiK subpoenaed to pro duce copies of his paper since Auk. 1, nnd all Mss, or copy furnished by Mr. Smith or John C3. Jennings for the Scrantoninn since that date, but had not done so because It was not custom ary for a newspaper to Involve its correspondents, and because he had not had the opportunity to consult his at torney about it. Jennings declined to say he had writ ten an article which was indicated in a paper shown to him. Mr. Smith ex plained that JennhiRS could not read without his Klasses. Jennings declined to admit the authorship of a letter signed with his name and sent to Judge Gunster. He Dually said he would not answer any questions In relation to the matter, as It might tend to In criminate him. That was reason for refusing to say whether he had read the history of Xerxes. Mr. Smith declined to answer a num ber of questions in reference to the paper called "Argument" or the Scran tonlnn or the articles they contained, explaining that tho answers might tend to Incriminate him. Judge Gunster testified In reference to the paper marked "Argument" which he found on his desk at the court house and a letter ne received at Lake Ariel. He was cross-examined at length by Mr. Smith on the Jennings case from the time Judge Connolly set the verdict aside. Mr. Smith la bored in vain to have Judge Gunster say that Judge Connolly abused his power in setting aside the $3,000 ver dict, or that Jennings was entitled to an exception. "With some spirit Judge Gunster refused to criticize the conduct of another judge. When the noon hour had passed Mr. Smith gave notice that he wanted to fuithei cross-examine Judge Gunster when the case went on. To this Mr. Xewcomb said: "Wo want it noted on the record that, having given the peti tioner opportunity to cross-examine tho witness and instead of cross-examining him he has availed himself of the presence of Judge. Gunster for the pur pose of discussing with him the hls loi y of his personal litigation and the litigation of his client Jennings: If lie has any further evidence of that char acter that he wants to put in this case he must get it upon his own responsi bility by the oidinary processus or by notice under the order of court made In this case."

About 10 o'clock Mr. Vun Osten was seated In the lobby, when he wasi sent for to quell a disturbance that had broken out on the stage. The curtain was dropped In the middle of an act and from the noise that came from behind It one would suppose that all the furies had been unleashed. The manager made for the stage door with all speed and in another inntant was In the centre of the stage, trying to bring order out of chaos.

Judge Archbald Rotired from tho Bench When tho Argument Began as He Had Appointed the Mombcrs of the Board Whose Right to Sit Is Questioned Arguments That Wore Presented by Attorney I. H. Burns to Support His Contention Mr. Scrngg's Reply. It will he remembered that last Feb ruary the Democrats, tinder the advice of Attorney I. II. Burns, voted for a full ticket ot poor directors. Ah the Republicans made no nominations, of course tho Domoctntlc ticket wus chosen. Those elected candidates took tho oath of olllee nnd appeared before the present bonrd and demanded their seats. These were refused, and there upon, at the Instance of member-elect John .1. Murphy, John R. Jones, dis trict attorney, brought a writ of quo warranto In the name of the common wealth against Fred. Tcrrpe, one of tho members appointed by Judge Archbald. The Issue thus made up wns argued on Saturday morning by I. II. Burns for the "elected board and by J. F. Scragg for the present Incumbents. Judges Gunster and Edwards were on the bench, Judge Archbald refusing to sit because the issue calls In question his right to appoint the board. Mr. Burns' statement of facts and argument on the law were, in brief, as follows": "Tho act creating the Scranton poor board was passed April 0, 1S02, and under It tho directors were elected by the people. The title to the net was, An act to authorize tho erection of a poor house by the borough of Dunmore. borough of Scrnnton and township ot Providence, in the county of Luzerne.' On the ICth of March, 1S0C, the act which forms the chief contention in this case was passed and is as follows: A further supplement lo an ni t entitled SUPPLEMENT TO AiCT. An act to authorizo the erection of a poor house by tho borough of Dunmore, borough of Scranton and township of Providence hi tho county of Luzerne. Ho It enacted, etc. Section 1. That the second section of the act entitled a supplement to an act to authorizo tho erection of a poor house, etc. approved April 1. 1SG.1, be, and tho same Is hereby repealed. See. 2. That hereafter whenever ury vacancy shall cccur In the board ot di rectors Treated In pursuance of tilt, act to which this Is a supplement, whether such vacancy occur by the expiration of the term of olllee or otherwise, the same shall be filled by the appointment of tho president Judge of tho court of common pleas 111 nnd for the county of Luzerne, at a regular term of f-.iid court, upon tho pet'tlon ot at least twenty freeholders from that portion of the district com prised within "sidd act, In which the va cancy occurs: that nil acts and parts of acts Inconsistent herewith, be. and tho same are hereby repealed. "In 1S6I. midway between the orig inal Act of 1862 and the supplement of ISfiC, a constitutional amendment was adopted as follows: "No bill shall be passed containing more than one subject which shall b" clearly expressed In Its title." "This constitutional prohibition doe not apply to the original law of 1SG2. which created the poor board, but it does apply to the supplement ot t?C'I, which attempts to abolish tho right of the people to elect the men who levy the poor taxes and expend tho morie. Does this supplement clearly express in its title tho subject matter of the net? Certainly 'not. The expressed purpose Is the erection ot a poor house. The actual purpose Is to change tho method of choosing tho members of the board. The title not only does not ex press the purpose of the act. but it Is clearly misleading. If the list is In valid by reason of defective title then the members of the board are still n be elected, and all appointments ui Illegal. OFFENDS THE CONSTITUTION. "Again, the act offends the consti tution In that It contains two separate subjects. Section llrst repeals a sec tion of un Act of 1SC3, while the sec ond section attempts to change the law of 1SC2. The two subjects are en tirely separate and distinct. "Even if the laws were valid there Is no authority for making the ap pointments by a Judge of Lackawanna county. The act says the judge of Lu zerne county, and being In derogation of tho right of election franchise, must lie strictly construed." Mr. Scrugg, In reply, claimed that Mr. Terppe having resigned the object ot the writ had now been accomplished and that the court should ullow the whole matter to drop. Also that poor board matters are progressing satis factorily and that disturbers of the peace should not be encouraged. He was under the Impression that the con stitutional provision In regard to the title of an act took effect In 1S74 in stead of 1SG4, and he was, theiefoiv, not prepared to argue It. Judge Ed waids said the matter is a serious one. and the court took the papers. It will probably receive serious consideration. DIED. PL.VTT.-Wllllain Hmry 1'l.Ut.

Entered One Houbo and Tried to Enter Another. Thieves entered the residence of Howell Morgan, ut 1413 Luzerne street, some time Saturday evening before 10.20 o'clock and stole two watches und u coat and vest. The family were all absent during the evening, and it Is supposed that entrance to the house was gained by means of a bay window, one part or which was left unfastened.

The coat was an ordinary sai I; of dark material. What Is supposed to have been an at tempt nt burglary was frustrated by the prompt action of Pharmacist George W. Jenkins about 4 o'clock yes teriluy morning at his residence, 213 South Hyde Park avenue. His wife called to lilm that some one was mov ing around down stairs. Thinking that u dog was snooping around a large refrigerator which stood on u covered porch leading from the dining room door, he pulled on his trousers and went down to drive him away Imagine his surprise when he opened the door onto the porch lo line) a man standing about ten feet from him. Both were too taken aback to npoak nt llrst. Mr. Jenlins recovered his speech first nnd asked the fellow what ho wanted. This Individual replied by dashing down the yard, out n rear gat" and up Decker's court toward Division street. Mr. Jenkins being barefooted could not follow.
