WHAT THE SCRIBES SEE AND HEAR A Point That Interests Applicants lor Saloon Llcona An Amend ing Aot That Does not Seem to Amend. Considorablo oxcitcmont exists among pobplo of town who havo applied forealoon Ho nscs for next year and have prepared their applications under tbo amending Act passod by the Legislature last Juno. Tho oxcitcmont has boon caused by a question raised by T. K. Beddall, Ejq , who lias discovered that that part of tho business transacted by tho Legislature Is in a muddlod condition. Tho point mado by Mr. Hod Jail Is that tho ampndlng Act of Juno 19, 1891, is null and void, as it fails to amend anything. An Act of May 18, 1887, provldo3 that tho suroty on tho bond of an applicant for a retail liceneo shall bo "no loss than two roputable freeholders of tbo ward or town ship where the liquor is to bo sold." The supposod amonding Act of Juno 10, 1891, provides that the Burety shall bo "no less than two reputable freeholders of tbo county where the liquor Is to bo sold. But tho preamble of this Act recites that it is an amendment "to tho 6tA and 8tA sec tions of tho Act of May 24, 1887." The Actrolatlng to liconsos passed on May 24, 1837, relates to wholesalo dealers and has but three sections, therefore the supposed amonding Act cannot relate to it. Tho Act rotating to retail licensos, passed in 1887, was enacted on May 13M. A large numbor of people in town havo appliod undor the Juno law, as they found it very convenient. Some living in one ward havo securod residents of another ward as their sureties, while others havo presented their applications with the names of residents of other towns as their bonds men. If Mr. Beddall's point is hold to bo a good ono many applicants will bo put to considerable trouble to preparo now appli cations. One said to a JIkrald reporter yestorday : "If that law of last Juno is no good it will put mo in a hole. I could havo secured two bondsmen in my own ward, but I concluded to got a moro Intimate friend in anchor ward to go on tho bond. Now, I am afraid tho fellow I could havo had is on loo many other bonds to accom modate me." Bucklen's Arnica Salve.

Says a Borough Water Plant Would Pay. Kditou IlKUALDi I eoo by tho water company's corrospondont in tho Sunday Aewsot tho 29th Inst., that tho company Intoods to; adopt tho same methods they used ten years ago for tho purpose of mis leading tho poople. The public meeting spoken of was attended by 1,000 of tho best poople of tho town and Mr. M. H. Kohler, who was unanimously selected as president of tho moeting, appointed the gentlemen who are now acting for tho citizens with the committee appointed by our councilmon. I cannot soo how Mr. Kohler can bo charged with sol fish ends. Ho has dono nothing boyond appointing that committee and tho appointmont wae mado at the request of tho thousand citizen) prosent at that public meeting. Tho committoe then proceeded to carry out tbo instructions of the meeting not thoso of Mr. Kohler, and I can see no reason why a cbarga of selfishness should bo mado against him. That committee, I under stand, Is still at work and will continue to push It to a successful termination unless tho wator company (and I, as citizon, hope thoy will not succeed) can induco the people, by misrepresentations, to put a stop to tho movement. Tho people of Shenandoah know, as woll as I do, that tho water company is flgUting for a principle. But thoy aro also aware that tho only principlo the company ovor Bhowod was for tho almighty dollar. They played a gamo of chance and lost, and now thoy aro crying togetthoir monoy back. Is it not truo that their action in bringing suit has cost this borough many hundred dollars? Is it not truo that they aro now willing to give tho borough freo water and forego tho amount tho verdict gave thorn 1 Is it not truo that thoy wont back on their pledgo! of ton j ears ago? Is it not truo that thoy denied, on tho witness stand, ever making such pledges 7 And is it not truo that they admitted on tho stand that they considered anything fair in a fight of this kind? And all for a principle! Th ero is no principle In grinding tho last penny out of tho pooplo of this town. Thoro is no principlo in taking back all they havo for tho sako of saving their dividends. There is no principlo in taking back solomn pledges and awoaring they never made thgij There is no principle in stooping to misrepresentations to win this fight. I, for ono, beliovo that a water plant can bo put into this town for f 75,000 and thai tbo bonds could bo floated at four por cont. On the question of royonue I believe tho borough would bo all right. Tho wator company's rovonuo amounts to at lean ?30,000 por year. Say, with that revonuo, tho cost of running tho borough works would be 810 000 a year (Hnd that is a high ostimato) thore would bo an annual balanco of ?20,CO0 towards liquidation of tho indebtedness. Comparo theso figures with thoso of tho water company's corres pondent and soo how far tho company will go for a principlo. Why, four or five years would wipo out tbo wator bonds and tho revenuo from that source would bo greater than our present tax duplicate and tho borounh tax would oventually amount to comparatively nothing. The rovonue would satisfy most people, but It seems this company cannot sleep in bod of a possi bility of collecting about ?000 more principlo, A CITIZEN. Shonandoah, Pa., Dec. 1, 1891.

THROWN BY A RUNAWAY HORSE The Unfortunate Man May Linger for Months Heartless Conduct of Mon to Whom Ho Ap pealed for Assistance. Jamos Moonoy is lying upon n bod at his home in tho First ward with his back broken. Moonoy, besides keeping a small candy and fruit store on Knst Centro streot, near tno bridge, sought a livelihood by drivine about tho patches and collecting old powder Kegs. Shortly after six o'clock last oven ing Moonoy, accompanied by his sovon-year-old son, was returning homo after a day's journey. As his borso desconded tho steep hill at the Indian ISidgo breaker a piece of tho harness broke. Tho horio took fright and ran away. Moonoy and tho boy were thrown into a deep ditch at tho Bido of tho road. The boy was knocked son6eloss, but tho father fared much worso. Ho foil head downward, in a doubled-uo poaiiion, with his feet in tho air and the weight of his body resting upoa his head and neck. Mooney remainod in nn un conscious condition for some timoand when ho recoverod ho was unublo to movo from tho position described. No ono was near tho unfortunates when the accident happonod and Moonoy says it seemed a month before two mon, on their way to work at L'inigan's, camo along, Hearing tho footsteps on tho hard, frozen roadway, tho unfortunato man oxclalmed. "For God's sako, got mo out of this posi tion." "Is this whore you are?" asked ono of tho men. "For God's sake, take mo out of tbi. Tako mo homo boforo I dio,"was Moonoy's second appeal, but tbo two men continuod on their way without offering tho sufferer tbo slightest assistance Boing again left alone Mooney tried to shift from his distressing position, but ho wasunablo to movo a limb. Meanwhilo his lilllo boy had wanderod about in a bewildered mannor and could not under stand tho instructions of bis fathor to go to tho nearest houso and securo holp. A Polandor then approached. He, too, was on his way to work at Lanigan's. "For God's sake, holp mol" cried Moonoy. Tho Pole laid down his can and bottlo and liftod Moonoy out of tho ditch and then summoned assistance. , Mooney and bis uon wore taken to thoir homo and Drs. James Stein and J. S. Callen woro summoned. Tho bov's in juries consisted of largo lumps on tho forehoad and back of tho hoad. Tho doctors said ;his injuries were not serious. Tho result of the father's injuries wab far moro gravo. Tho doctors informed the wife that hor husband's back was broken that tho fracture wa3 at the eight or ninth dorsal. A Hkrald reporter was prosont when Dr. Stein was attending the unfortunato man this morning. Moonoy is kept in Ig noranco of tho naturo of his injuries. Ho Is completely paralyzed from wai3t to tooi, The doctors puOiod pins up to tho hoads In tho limbs and in tho body below the waist. but there was not tbo slightest eenso of fooling. Moonoy was resting easy. "Doctor,' be said while tho physician was attending him, "I can't seo how thoso two men could bo so heartless as to leiivo me in that position in thn ditch. If they had been Polos or Huns I would not look at it so much. But thoy would not. I 'know ono of thein and I hopo that ho will never bo called upon to appeal, as I was. Tbo poor Pole who did all he could, God bloss him.' "Ned" Bronnan and James Shields, who were in tho room, said that porhaps tho two men thought Mooney was undor tho influence of drink, but they usiured tho reporter that Moonoy bad not boon drink ing for fourtoon months and that ho was a member of tho Annunciation T.
