to be remembered. The clang of the

upon vicious fish horns aud other ar
ticles capable of provoking noise.

tions to soranadu the residents.
Sweet melody floated on the air,
and 8 o'clock had struck be

Peter Z-igler, Conrad Schrotler,
Charles Robinson and Victor Koch,
of Scranton, were in the city
yesterday afternoon. Tnolr mis
Hion was to inspect the new
hotel properties that ire in process
of erection Thev cwii in the in
terest of Deputy Sheriff Craig who is
contemplating the proprietorship of
the Hotel American. In company with
Mr Craig they visited the new hostelry
aud appeared tUlightfld with it ap
pearance and arrangement Tiiesj
gentlemen are among the prominmit
monied men of the county seat mid are
the backers of Mr. Craig in his new de
parture. It is generally understood that Mr.
Craig has received the refusal of the
Imusa at the time when a definite ren
tal cm be fixed upon. At presont this
cannot be arrived at, as the total sums
require 1 for the finishing aud furnish
ing of the structure are not known.
Mr. Craig is one of the most ganial
of men, a hustler in ovary sens of the
word and would make an excellent
landlord, having had considerable ex
perience iu the business. A consulta
tion was had between the parties in
interest yesterday, btt no fiuul decision
was reached. Mr. Ktch later vis
ited tbe Hotel Anthracite in
which it is hinted he would
like to instal his brother John
Koch a hotel man of the wi lost experi
ence. The latter will be remembered
as the proprietor some years ago of the
Central Park garden in New York
which was the fashionable resort of
the city nud where Theodore Thomas'
full orchestra gave two concerts daily.
Later ho kept a celebrated restaurant
in Paris which was the resort of all the
leading men of the day.- CaTbonialt
WANTS HIS PASS RENEWED.
Application That Wai Racaivod
General Manazer Arehar.
The announcement in Saturday's
Titiuu.NK that ninety Traction com
pany passes had beeu cut off by Qui
eral Manager Archer caused a good
deal of worry among those who were
so fortunate to possess numbered bits
of paste bo rd during the past year,
Tue following applicatiou accom
panied a . 1893 street car pass, horribly
mutilated, wnich was receiv-d by
Manager Archer, Saturlay nfternoon:
Its tattered and torn, this old streat car
lis beauty and value are things of tho
It has serred a good purpose you can see
by the wear,
That is innrked o'er its surface, with dirt
aud with tear.
T.ike the year it was good for, 'tis forced
to give place
To another that bears '94 on its face,
For the year 'H is a memory now;
With it -i pass that is usaless I you now en
With prayers that are humble, o'evllow-
iug with hope,
Its renewal is asked from the kind Traction
Their officials I'll bless from the first to
the last, '
If they only will give nin a '91 pass.

WILSON TAftlFF INO DISASTER.
The Manager of a Local Industry Ex
presses Bla Views.
The American Economist recently
wrote to prominent business mm in all
parts of the country for opinions as to
the effect which would follow the en
actment of the Wilsoo tariff bill in the
present form. The issue dated l)c.
30 nit, coutains the following letter
from t.'.e manager of the Green Ridge
"After carefullv considering the
proposed new tariff bill, of which I
have a copy beforo me, 1 can only con
clude that its becoming a law will
have the most depressing effect upon
the business of the country. The ef
fect upon the iron industry, in which
1 am personally interested, will bs dis
astrous, How can it be otherwise,
with a rednced tariff of about tflU per
ton, when everything excepting labor
is at its lowest ebb at pressnt't Wis
will surely be reduced to the level of
ptnper labor In Eagland. Nothing
will be more sure than t.his;and the pur
coaling power of tun p3opl, will be at
least fifty per cent, less th in it is to
day, excepting always the rich man,
who has large amounts stored away iu
our banks. His purchasing power
will ho increased to the Baiuo extent.
Tiiese are facts wiiic:i 1 defy nay free
trader to disprove. D. B. ATHERTOX."
