Columns have been written about the
play since it was produced in London,

ing its initial metropolitan production
oyer three years ago, this satire on
Washington and Texan domestic and
political life was forced from the stage
of the Bijou theater, New York city,

the clamor of out of town managers
who held contracts for its production
in their respective cities. Its return to
Scranton for an engagement of one
night, next Thursday, Feb. 22, will
doubtless be greeted with a welcome
that will solidly demonstrate its popu

The trustees of the Sttranton Public
librur have issued their report for tbe
year 1803. which niukoa the third an
nnal. The address to the councils is as fol
lows :
To tbe honorable, the select aud common
councils of the city of BcfantOD,
iHnti.kmks 1 It is with unalloyed pleas
ure Hinl honorable pride iu this third an.
nual report, the board of trustees can Con
gratulate you, the people of Serautou, in
having ii well selected working library.
Vhe use of tbe memorial building aud dis
tribution of book therefrom attest iu si
Itnre more emphatic than words, an ap
preciation OB the part of the people of the
gifts of the buiMing, grounds aud bonks,
and of the commendable interest which
you hs councilmeu have shown.
Mr. Albright at the inception of his gift
of a memorial building pledged an expendi
ture of $75,000, and Kxeurod the same by a
deposit of collaterals in order to guard
aoatnat unv contingency. The final cost
ot the building and appurtenances to him
has reached 1188 000; tne vouchers aud
payment tor winch have at his request
passed through the hands of the president
of the board.
The reports of tbe secretary nnd libra
rian, with the summary of the expendi
tures for the year ISBSt tell their own beti
eticial story. The rapid growth in the
utility of the library may OS uuderstood
from the fact that a maximum of over
1,000 visitor in one day has been at
tuiued, that 6,307 name have been regis
tered as borrowers, and books have
been out at one time. All classes and lines
of society are attracted to its enclosure
and receive freely the benefit which self
culture, the best promise of future
growth, affords.
Iu our estimate for the absolute necessi
ties of the library tor tho coming year, wo
have cut close to the Una of rigid econ
omy. The estimate is slightly Increased,
but we assure the councils, aud through
thm the citizens, that we make no pres
sure on hem. which i not made up m us,
tiv the tacts aud the huiwer of our na
trons, who are your wards. We sincerely
trust that you will see your way clear to
grant our "praver in this regard. The
building and grounds, if spontaneous ex
pression of the people aud of all intelli
gent critics, which have come to us, are
any criterion, have more than met all ex
pectations iu their utility aud elegance,

The summary of expenditures for tho
past year will be found among the reports
herewith presented.
The accessions to the book department
during the year were4."3, making a pres
ent total of IS, 720 volumes.
A great encouragement to the manage
meut of the institution is found in the
spontaneous and unsolicited generosity of
those who have adtleil their guts or valua
ble books to the library. Wo trust that
this spirit will grow and be a constant
support nnd a fitting compliment to the
int-rest which our municipal authorities
and public otlicers aud representatives,
both state and national, are showing.
The meetings of the board bave been of
the most interesting and harmonious char
acter, and the fuitbfulness of all tbe otli
cers engaged in the active work of the
library are worthy of special mention. We
desire to place the future growth and ex
cel leuce of this beneficial Institution, both
as to its incoming supplies aud its outgo
ing benefits, as a grateful burdu'i on tbe
hearts of all of our people, young and old:
and we invite kind, intelligent aud faith
ful exsmination aud criticism, and a uni
versal nse of its privileges.

Tho number of book takers has proven

,307 enrde issued 500 were to males and
3 s47 to females: 4.65!l were to por-ons aged
18 years and upwards and 1,648 to those
undor that age.
As to locality in tho citv no spoclflc
count has been kept, hut frequent Inspec
tion of tbe applications and home address
es recorded shows u good representation
from all sections, even those most remote
from tho library.
Particulars concerning the home circu
lation ot books will appear iu a summary
appended to this report. Total issues from
the circulating department for the seven
months l7o days), number 85,021; a daily

daily number out in the hands of readers
was 3,053, on Monday, Dec. 1.
Percentage ot circulation from the sov
end sections of tbe librnry, other tban
Prose Fiction aud Juveniles, has been
higher than was originnlly expected aud
shows a large class of reading of inostgrut
ifyiog character.
Use of reforenre department hns not been
specifically recorded In statistical terms
since, of those hooks, over 3,(100 aro placed
on open shelves for public access and read

ti 'ii of the library has received a pleasing
patronage unci the MUM . is true of the
reading room proper as well as of tho pe
riodical literature placed thero for free ac
cess and nse.

Whether the library can continue to
grow a vigorously in 1804 depends, In the
main, upon the extent of the appropria
tions for that year. Having now a good
start and foundations well laid, ft will be
possible then to give especial attention to
the matter of duplicating, more or less, In
the line of most popular and ' Bervicenble
works, and of filling up any classes found
deficient in quantity.
A "finding list" of books In the circu-
USUng department, up to tho oud of Feb
ruary, 181)3, wus punted iu March and
April, making a handy pamphlet of 204
page in manlila bag-board cover. Being
in readiness at the opening of the library
aud sqid to book-takers at the nominal
price of 10 cents each. I.'.CI copies have
been so taken, up to tho close of i the year.
Two hundred and fifty copies remained
for sale at that date, together with a small
number additional in uubouud sheets for
future use.
Lists of additions to tbe circulating de
partment, since the punted finding list,
have been currently made on the typo
writer aud posted on the bulletin board
at the library. During 1894 it will prob
ably bo desirable that those and subse
quent additions be printed in a supple
ment form and supplied to the library
patrons. While doing this it may be feas
ible, perhaps, to combine with it an author
Index to the entire contents of the library
and thus supply a feature which was omit
ted from the original finding list fur rea
sons of economy.
As usual, exchanges with other librar
ies and Institutions huvo beou carried on
sine - the last report; resulting in tho r
csipt of many catalogues, reports, bill
lot ins and kindred1 publication of interest
and value. Various other volumes aud
