SEITZ ANSWERS IN "HARDSCRABBLE" CASE [Continued from First Page.] years has been on the city official map and in public use." City Solicitor Seitz filed his answer late this afternoon and in it the whole contention of the petitioners is an swered although in conclusion the city takes the position that the proceeding] is irregular in that the petitioners should have taken the matter into court by excepting to the report of the viewers instead of by petitioning for the dismissal of the viewers. Street Never Opened After generally denying the al legations of the petitions Mr. Seitz vigorously declares that Front street in the section in question was never officially or legally opened. The sec tion was laid out and the street mark ed on the map, by the 1869 commis sion. he points out, and this plan shows that the street extended to low water mark. Inasmuch as the city never carried out this plan, it is within its right, the solicitor sets forth, to follow out the lines laid down by the commission by exercising the right of eminent domain and that the present proceed ings are baaed on this ground. On this subject City Solicitor Seitz says: Front street was laid out, es tablished and marked upon the city official plan by a certain com mission appointed under and by virtue of the act of assembly en titled, "A supplement to an act incorporating the city of Harris burg, in the county of Dauphin," approved April 9th, 1869. P. tj. 771, which plan was duly ratified and confirmed and made valid by the act of assembly entitled, "A further supplement to the act in corporating the city of Harris burg, in the county of Dauphin, passed April 9th, 1869," approved January 2. 1871. Copies of said plan, with the accompanying ex planatory report of said commis sion, were filed In the office of the prothonotary of the county of Dauphin, in the office of the re corder of deeds in and for said county, and also among the rec ords of the Common Council of said city; that said plan, so rati fied and confirmed and made valid, with the accompanying re port, shows that said Front street was laid out to low water mark of the Susquehanna river; that no change in the lines of said Front street, as adopted by the said commission of 1869 and con firmed by the legislature in 1871, has been made or authorized, and that said street is now being opened between the points desig nated in accordance with the said plan: that the properties belong ing to said petitioners are with in the lines of said street, and are. with others, the subject of con demnation under the power of eminent domain lawfully confer red upon and exercised by the citv of Harrisburg, in the proceed ings which the petitioners are now endeavoring to have set aside. One Witness Heard To-day Only one witness was heard by the viewers to-day. This was E. G. Slay baugh, 1130 North Front street, who thinks his property is worth $7,500. He based this on what someone told him he ought to get if the property wasn't molested. His foot frontage value he fixed at S2OO per foot, based on the sale of the Watts' property at Forster and Front streets. The question of whether or not a witness may testify after he has looked into the records of sales, etc., instead of his personal knowledge of trans actions at the time of their occurrence was ruled out when the viewers re fused to permit James Dinger to testi fy • The city will open its side of the case to-morrow at 10 o'clock.
