The borough seems to have been the object of attack by burglars during the psist few days sind the citizen's are very much exercised over the iniitter. The school hnuso was broken into on Siiturday niglu. but what the object of the robbers was in entering this building Is hard to conjecture. The fact of their visit was discovered by Mrs. George Hrown on Monday niorii--. Ing when she opened the school. Th» burglars had pried open a shutter arid of course the rest was an esixy matter. On the ssitne night the'">narsiuUois sUtempted to en^er the residence of President o[ Council W. VV. Johnson on Eleventh street, and the home ot lidwurd HLoue on the same thoroughfare. They were frightened off in both instances before they accomplished their purpose. These attempts with the one at the home o£ Joseph Penn and the robbery of the Eddystonc M.

During the operation the dirt which was excavated was put In a pile and the policeman, Alexander Montgomery, was ordered to place a I'cd light on the pile to warn drivers of the danger. On Saturday evening the ollicer did as he was told, but on Sun- dsiy night he did not. The consequence was that si imin with a buggy ran into tho flirt and upset. The carriage was -broken and the occupants were thrown out. The Street Committee of Council has received a communication regarding the affair and if damages are not forthcoming a suit will likely occur. THE CROSSING AFFAIR. The work of laying the new cross ing stones nt Saville avenue and Ninth street have been suspended for the present, because of the short rails which are at, this point. These rails are i part of those formerly laid down to the Pennsylvania U:\ilroad statioi when the Chester Traction Companj an a oar there. Dr. John MacFuyden the superintendent, has promised to have the rails removed, however, and this will be done in a few days and the work of laying the stones will then be- resinned. CHURCH SERVICES.

Arthur TompUins has returned to his hum.- in c'aiu.l.'n. N. .1.. after a pleas- of his application for withdrawal but in lily. IDOO. bis stock was cancelled by the Association. Subsequently suit was brought on the one hundred and fifty dollar note. On the trial it was shown that by the report of the Auditor of January." 1800, Ihsit tho withdrawal value of the slock was three hundred and llfiy-seven dollars and eighty-six cents; and that the arrearage as shown by the books was one hundred ami thirt:'-scven dollars and llfly-one cents. The verdict wuh for seventy-seven dollars and seventy- seven cents which the plaintiff concedes Is correct, providing the defendant was entitled to the right of a withdrawing stockholder; and provided further, that he books of the association as made up )>• the secretary are to be accepted as conclusive ot the amount due by the jo r rower. On the trial it was held that the de- fendsmt was entitled to withdraw his stock and receive the withdrawal value that a non-borrowing stockholder was entitled to receive. An offer made by the plaintiff to prove that the defendant was in arrears uul had been for a considerable period was overruled. Tlio Court holding that the association could not contradict the account ns made up by the secretary. THE FIRST QUESTION. A.S to tho first o.uestion: Is a borrowing stockholder entitled to the same withdrawal value sis a lion-borrowing stockholder? It is conceeded that if this association had been incorporated under the act of 1S59. thsit the contention of the plaintiff would be correct. This association however was incor- porstted under the act of April 19, 1S74, and the charter specially provides-that it shall be subject to the provisions of the act of April 9, 1S79. The fourth section of this act relates to the payment of loans by a borrower and provides that "Such borrower shall receive the withdrawing value of the shares pledged for snlfl loan and the shares shall revert baclc to the associsition." The withdrawal value is fixed by section seven of the By-Laws of the association. It is argued that though the- association was incorporated under the act of 1S7-I and supplements, -and subject to the provisions of the act of 1S79, it ie still subject to the second section of : Iield that he could :iot do this ufier he | ' hu/J assigned H to V.'a'Uiuger. The as- \ i .sociution by u resolution Oir-.-ctt-d the | wIlhdroAVuJ to be cie'lin-d.on his indobt- l edntss—whether they included profits t does not ap-i'-ar. H is true the Court ; BiiiO, "He louhl not be a 1 stockholder so long as ills stock was 1 held In pK'ljre" nuoiing U'atklns vs. the i liuildirig Association. H does not up- i j pear whether t!:c- Washington Building ] I and I,oun Association was incorporated ' under the at t of JS.'/J or 1.S74. No inc-n' tion is made of 'he act of IST'J and as ; \Vatkins vs. On- BulMing Association is ! reft-rrc-d to 'n .sayinr- that stoek bfrlrl in pledge coul<l not be withdrawn it Is i riulie i.Iain lhat ibe Court cilher knew or i nought that tin- association was Incorporated uii'K'i- Ihe act of 1!>59. Il i^' ciuite lik«-lv lhat the attention of the Court was not call'.-U to any legislation on the .sub.'t-cl. as the decision Is put on other 'grounds. In Johnson vs. Building Association. '. there is nothing to show whether ihc i Sharon Huil'Iing Association was incor- : j.oraleii under the act of 18S9 or not. : : The case (i'.il not turn on the right j I of withdrawal. Tiie Court said that the ; j quesllon of wltlidrawiil was immaterial , j unlesH th<- second cuesllon raised was ; i decided in favor of the plaintiff. It was ' decided in favor of tho defendant. As • in thr- case o!" WacJlinzer vs. Building I and Loan Association the decision of • the Court was put on other grounds ; thtin tho right of borrowing stockholder ; i/> wiihilraw and ns no mention in the opinion is made of the act of 1S79 and as j the Court refers to cases decided under ; Ihe ar-t of 1853 the conclusion is Irresistible that the Court's attention was noi ; called to the legislation on the subject, or i r so that it came within the scopi of Ihe act of JfiflO. Till-: QUESTION OF FINTCS. This brings us to the question of fines. The arrearages shown by the books in January, 1300, were $137.41. This was correct so far as the charjrc-s niade oil the books were concerned, and it was from this Item in part that the value of the share was ascertained by the Gold Dust.': the ;ict of 1S59 which it is claimed is still in force- I cannot agree with this view. That part of the second section of the act of ISM provides. "That no stockholder,- shall be entitled to withdraw, whose/stock is held in pledge." This is clesirly inconsistent with the fourth section of the act of 1S7!) which relates to the payment of loans br a borrower and which provides that the borrower shall be entitled to the 'withdrawing value of the shares pledged for said Ic^in." And section two of said act empowers the association to prescribe by by-laws the wilhdrawinr value.' It is further contended that under section three of the by-laws the Board ot Directors have authority to terminate the membership of a stockholder if he shstll be in arrears for six months ami Ihc.t 'n such e:>se he shall be only entitled to receive only the amount of actual payments n "d that the effect of tne cancellation of defendant's stock in July. 1900. was to deprive him of the right to share in the profits. Had this canct'lia 1 ion taken place prior to tho r'nte oC notice for withdrawal and pnymoiit of loan, it might have been an answer to his rights to profits, if this nnrt of the by-laws not in conflict with tho net of 1S79. but the right of the parties were fixed .it ibe of tho no; = ro of withdrawal. The Board of Directors not having pro- Auditors, who settled and adjusted the iiccounl in January. 1900. The ;ilaintiff offered to show on the trisil that the secretary had not charged against tho defendant sill lines that he should have been charged with. This offer was overruled. At the time I had grave doubts as to its correctness. It sippeared so manifestly just, that the defendant should pay all fines, that under the by-lnws he was liable tt> pay and that he should not be relieved because or the failure of the secretary to charge him with them on the books. After careful reflection I have concluded that the association is bound by the arrearages as shown by the books from the charges made after the Auditors hs.'.ve settled and adjusted the accounts for that year and reported the value of the share. The value of the share is fixed by the. Auditors and the amount of the arrearages of each share holder must'be taken into consideration in ascertaining this fact, the arrearage o£ this defendsint sis shown by the books must have been taken into consideration as part of the assets, in ascertaining the value of the share. Section 2 of. svrticle 7 of the by-laws provide for the imposing of lines, it also provides that the Board o£ Directors may termins>.te the membership of a shareholder if he shall be six months in arrears after deducting- all charges that may be standing against him or her: And the third section of this article provides that the books of the association for the receipt of monthly payments, etc., shall be closed with the adjournment o- the stated meetings and that the fines shall be charged monthly. Section 7 of article 2 of the by-laws relating to withdrawals after designating the share of the profits a.withdraw- ing stockholder is entitled to, says "less all fines which may be chstrged against him or her." QUESTION OF VALUES. This section also provides that tho net profits which he shall be entitled to receive shall be only such as accrued up to the date ot the last annual report. It does riot in language saj that the withdrawal value- shall be ascertained from the value of the shares as final by the last annual report bu taken in connection with section G o f.rticle 4 which nrovides "It shall b> the GOLD DUST twins do your Slave if you will, but if you perfer to make housework easy, use GOLD DUST It makes home brighter and care lighter.
