Established 1x1855 in Neil two sessions the Borough Council Friday convened and adjourned without taking any action Oil the subject of a logs which just now is so prominently before the people. The fact is the members were so much engrossed with other subjects that no one at first thought of dogs. No sooner however had adjournment taken place than the omission o corred to some one. It was a matter of regret to the Borough fathers a they did not wish to appear negligent of a matter of so much moment and after a Short talk they decided to reconvene before leaving the Council chamber and to take necessary action. President Gibson after an interval of ten minutes called Council to order the second time whereupon the Roll was called and the Secretary read the Borough ordinance relating to dogs. In was the sense of the members that in View of the unusually Large number of persons being bitter something ought to be done and that no time should to lost in doing it. The proper thing to do however was not Clear to any one. To carry out the provisions of the ordinance of dogs at this time seemed impracticable. There were Plen to of suggestions made but none that seemed to Hud much favor. While the discussion was at its height or. Dietz moved that Council adjourn. George Reifsnyder seconded the motion and when it was left to a vote the members disgusted with the whole Busine is voted a a Aye and adjournment was had in the special session devoted to dogs without taking any action whatever of the canines. During the first session a petition was read from the residents and property owners on the West Side of Mill Street first Ward asking that an Extension to the Borough sewer 5� made for the use of tie abutting properties through the first Alley West of Mill Street running from Penn Street up to a tsp Market Street.

Saturday rendered an opinion in which lie says that the duty of the state is to increase its for the care of the insane even at the expense of protective construction if the an Ionut appropriated by the legislature is not sufficient to erect buildings of the Type desired. The opinion is addressed to Evans a Dettra of Norristown. Who raised the Point on behalf of the to Oseres Ottlie state Asylum at that place. The amount appropriated the Hill was the measure introduced personally by chairman of the appropriations committee Plummer is 170,000, the buildings to he erected after the plans and specification on file in the office of auditor general Snyder at the time of the passage of the act. When the bids were opened it was found that not one of them came with in the 170,000 limit. The lowest was $10,000 in excess of the appropriation. After this discovery no award was made and revised plans were drawn by the architect in which Wood was substituted for corrugated Iron. Some other changes were made with the design of bringing the amount of the contract Price within the appropriation. Or. Carson replies you ask whether the trustees would be justified in adopting the changed plans whereby the Cost could be brought within the amount of the appropriation Ami you ask further whether it the trustees Are not justified in so doing they have any duties whatever to perform Nandor the act of the insufficiency of the appropriation for the Parps be specified. 1 reply that this is a delicate question and Only the Gravity of the situation and the imperative necessity for new buildings would justify a Devia Tion Fioti the very explicit language of the act making the appropriation. A similar question has Arisen at Dan Ville and in a conference with the trustees and the auditor general Field at this department lat week 1 suggested that the architect who Drew the first plans which Are placed on file in the office of the auditor general should be consulted and that if he could prepare new plans providing for a practically fireproof construction consisting largely of Concrete and certify that tie amount of Wood necessarily involved in said construction would not interfere with the fireproof character of the buildings practically considered then it would seem to me that the requirements of the act were substantially complied with. It must a borne in mind that the chief object sought to he remedied by this legislation is the scandalously crowded condition of these hospitals Aud it would be sticking in the hark to deny Relief to the unfortunate inmates because tie appropriation made for this purpose proved to he to cover the expenses of the buildings As originally planned. It must he observed that there is nothing whatever in the act which requires the buildings to he of corrugated Iron. The main requirements Are that the temporary wards shall be fire proof one Story in height Well lighted properly heated and ventilated with All modern sanitary appliances and arrangements it is True that the further statement a made a according to plans and specifications now on file in the office of tie auditor general a hut to give a controlling operation to this portion of the statute would he to defeat the main purpose of the Law. The statute must control the plan and not the plan the statute. The statute cannot he a hanged the plan can he changed. The Law certainly does not require the performance of the impossible and there is a Long line of decisions that where for any reason it is physically impossible to comply strictly with the directory part of a statute that portion May he ignored so Long As the primary intention of the legislature is carried out and a substantial compliance is practicable. Hence in my opinion the sensible and proper thing to do is to have the architect modify the plans requiring him however to certify that in his judgment the new plan is of a practically fire proof construction. This being so. The duty remains upon the trustees to carry out the terms of the statute so that its Beneficent purpose Mav not he Defeated. #137.00. 29.00 31.40 3.00 138.51 17. �5 3.79 Ltd a. 8h 19.32 4.49 56.70 department.

The House itself without the contents was valued at #2000 and was insured Foi #2000. The furniture and other personal property in the House were insured for $600 in the Millville company tin origin of the fire is a mystery. Or. Beyer was assisting to haul Hay upon a farm some distance from Home and it was not until the building was Well nigh destroyed that lie arrived on the scene. Mrs. Beyer who was in the Garden was alone at Home with two servants. It was one of the servants who discovered the fire in the rear end of the House the Kitchen already being a mass of flames. Help was sent for and arrived almost immediately hut the flames had gained too great a headway to be checked with hie meager fire fighting appliances at hand. The fire horned so quickly i hat there was not even time to save any of the household goods. When or. Beyer drove to Danville later in the Day lie was compelled to borrow a coat from a neighbor.
