WITHOUT RIGHT ARGUMENT MADE BY ATTOR NEY JOHN F. SCRAGG. In an Effort to Convince the Court That the Quo Warranto Proceedings In the Poor Board Matter Have no Standing He Mndo the Statement That Terppe's Appointment Was Illegal Because He Did Not Live in the "Old South Ward of Scranton." Which He Represented. In coint yesterday morning arcu munt wan heurd on the rule to substi tute tho name of Kmnk J. Dicker t fur Fred I... Terppo In the qim warranto proceedings Instigated by John J. Mur phy, who claims tho oillce of poor di rector, from what wan formerly Ov oid South ward of Scranton. The pur-posi- of tho prnccetllnKH Is to legally uncertain whether poor directors should be elected or uppolnted. Mr. Murphy was elected one year ago and at once had (jiio warranto proceedings begun in tin- name of tho comtnonwealtli to teat the ilRht of F- I.. Teippo to hold tho sent. Mr. Torppe was. appointed by Judge Anhbald. While tho mutter was ponding Mr. Terppo resinned, and after tho appoint mont of his successor, Mr. Dlckert, the court was asked to substitute the lat-t-i h iiiuiiQ fur Mr. TVrpPo'H. A rule to show cauif why this Hhould not h allow ed wan granted at tho time anil whs made returnable, yesterday. Altorn.v John l- .Scragg. for the pour board, presented a brief to Judge (luii.iier yesterday protesting against th substitution. He said Mr. Terppe's appointment was Irregular as the rep resentntlve of the old South ward, fiom the fart that he did not reside- within the boundaries of that ward. If bo had no right to thu otllce. iuo warranto proceedings against lilm would liavo no standing. Jle further suited that Mr. Murphy was again a eandidate till.- year, and was elected, tbeieby forfeiting his right to prosecute the proceedings negiin a. year ago. Judge Uunster refused to consider tnat argument. It Is tho com monwealth not Mr. Murphy that Is tho plaintiff In the proceedings, ho said. Attorney 1. II. Hums, who represents Mr. Murphy, urged early considera tion or the matter by the court. Ho said the proceedings wcro oegun a year ago. and at every stage of their pro gress Mr. Scragg had tome forward with wine kind of an objection or re quest evidently made for the sole pur pose of delay. It is an iiupoitant mat ter. Mr. Hums said, and ho hoped tho court would permit tbem lo gel it Into such ehnpe us to permit of any early adjudication. .liifigi) Ounster. after listening to the arguments, look the papers In the case.

In WUkes-Barre Last Wight Will Give a Reading of His Poems at Lyceum Tonight. James Whltcomb Riley, who uivs il reading of his poem at the Lyceum to night, was greeted b a magnlllccnt audience at Wllkes-Hario last nlgM. The reception lit tccelveil really took the form of un ovation. lie was Intio dueed by Judge Stanley Woodward, and after the recital be was entei taliicd at the Westmoreland dub bv Judgti Woodwind and a number of Wllkes-lJarie's leading citizens. After his reading at the Lyceum to night be will be cuteitalncd at the Scrnnton club by the Physicians' elub. This Is a graceful lecognltlon of ills tribute to "Doe Slphers," which has so pleated the medical fraternity of tho country. Mr. Hiley is a delightful comersa tiunalist. Jlc Is lather afraid of re porters with the Inevitable pa J, but Is charming to a supreme degree In a friendly chat. Yesterday while talking witli a Tilb line representative he gave many an attractive glimpse of a personality that Is always appealing to thu reader of his poems. "I began as a printer," ho said, "but 1 always hail within me tho desire to write In verse. 1 can't wrlto prose today. It Is always a soit of blank verso and that's as good as prose, you know. I had the best kind of early surroundings to quicken my love of nature. "It wasn't exactly a farm where the tendency is to grow so used to tho beauties of the woods und fields that they lose their meaning, nor neither was It the city, where nature seldom speaks to one, but a little country vll luge from which I went often Into the real country to learn Its treasures, ilu; to live the year around far away from the life I know that would be!" here Iih jruve one ot his expressive gestures, Indicating a dismay impossible to translate. The thought is emphasized In "Grlggsby Station." "I do miss the educational advant ages I didn't get," he went on, seri ously. "I've used words that didn't mean what 1 thought they did. and afterward when I found out tho lino shading of synonyms, I realized that it Is no wonder some of those highly clas sical fellows say, 'Oh, Riley doesn't know bow to use the language.' No body feels it more than I. There Is that line in the sonnet 'Her Hair' 'and storming round the neck tumultuously.' Now 'tumultuously' doesn't mean what I said there, but I don't know any other word that will do in Its place. It's the same way with 'no rumor of pain in her eyes.' 'Rumor' isn't the correct word, but somehow it was the word I wanted." Hut the listener thought what a blessing to American llteraturo It Is that Mr. Riley has used tho words be "wanted" and has not polished the tenderness and the feeling out of his lines, for if ever theie was a man who expressed real, true feeling as tho art ist understands that term, It Is James Whltcomb Riley. With remird to his dialect writings, Mr. Riley said: "Dialect Isn't merely leaving off the g's and misspelling words In general. It Is the actual lan guage of a people who are as misunder stood by city folk as if they spoke ver itable foreign tongue. The farmer knows more words than ho uses, but In tho presence of tho supercilious, patron izing city man bo Is more nwkward than usual. Yet he Is nearer to Cod and to the best In nature than any one else." Easter Flowers, for Holy Thursday at Clark s -innex. 203 Washington avenue, old Guernsey building.

Dr. Robinson was confined to his home bv severe Illness, but sent a. letter of i egret. Ill which he beautiful ly expressed the sentiments of the ministers, toward Mr. Pearsall. Engineer Hryunt's remarks were characteristic of a railroader, and ho expressed In a hearty, straightforward way just how the railroaders who knew nnd lespectcd Seeietary Pearsall felt At tills point Cluilrm.in Truck was called upon to present to Secretary Pearsall a purse containing $100 In gold and a handsome traveling grip. The former came from the railroaders and the latter from the Ladles' Aux iliary ot the association. He made the double presentation in a titling man ner. Mil. IMCARSALL'S RESPONSE.
