This qusry was contined to uo par

merchants, municipal officer and pro
fessional moil have submitted their
prognostications, which will be pre
sented in TBI TbibUNI until tbe list is
exhausted The opinions given to day
will prove to be of more tuan passing
Here are a few forecast.':
CBIOAOO OF THE KA8T..
Postmaster F. M. Yandiiug hcranton is
nearin the last halt of the final decade of
the century with prospects brighter tlmu
ever. The rapidly increasing value of the
Vast anthracite coal deposits, of which
ficrautou is the commercial center, will
pour a vast Hue or wealth luto her lap.
The new public buildings, bridges and
pared streets will greatly add to tbe con
venience of busiuess, while tbe now as
sured public park and the handsome
stvlo of our recent architecture will add
greatly to the beauty of tho city and it
sutrcundiugs. The railways centering
here give an easy access to tho great cen
ters 01 trade and population aud tlud un
failing markets f. r the products of our
mines aud shop. Our splendid rapid tran
sit system will add iui.es of streets aud
many thousands to tho growth of our
population. Panics touch ns hut elightly,
because we produce and sell what con
sumers always want and must have. In
enterprise, eaergy ami hope Scranton is
the Chicago or the cast, and the vim
and vigor of her people will lu twelve or
fifteen years make this a city of 150,000 inhabitants.
LIKE HENRY WARD HEKCHER.
Rev. Rogers Israel Henry Ward Beeoher
was accustomed to say that he at
tempted to prophesy but once. Then, a
young man, he asserted that never would
war a -am devastate the earth. He lived to
see three of the greatest wars of history.
1 think very much the same or prophecy
But I Would say that the youth of Scran-
tou, tbe energy and sterling character of
its leading men, and its unique position in
the east, give promise of a future of singu
lar iufluence. Tbe city is sui generis, and
the developement of its various peculiar
elements must be for great good or great
evil, tbe result cannot be Simply ordinary.
SCHOOLS OF ART AND SCIENCE,
E. O. CoCRsES-Ueographifally It is dif
ficult for me to answer tbe question, but
the general growth of the city will, I
think, far exceed the most sanguine expec
tations, Scranton of MOO will, 1 think,
contain a population of 130,000 persons.
among whom will be found tbe most pro
found men and brightest women of the
state. The energetic, struggliug business
man of today's depression will then be in
the full zenith of success. Added to the
t public school system in tbo state we
shall in 1900 have schools of art and
science, the finest board of trade
building in tbe state, a house consoli
dated of the boards of Scrauton,
an electric railway system connecting us
with every large city in the state, tbe
journey to New York city made in three
hours, two of the handsomest churches in
the country, a new hotel and business
block on tbe First Presbyterian church
property. Tbe sound financial condition
of the city and the proud distinction won
by our bankers will be tenfold greater.
No city in tbe Ln'ted States proportion
ately giveB today for "good works" as
much as Scranton. The Florence mission
and Rescuo mltsion will have houses of
their own. Lack of time will not allow
me to follow out this subject as I should
like, even were I competent to do so; the
possibilities seem beyond my ability to
comprehend. However, the Scrauton of
VMi win be a great cltv and my predictions
may be more than realized with a high
tariff protecting our home industries and
working men: without this protection
Scrauton may not push forward.
TOOK AWAY Ills IIKEATH.
f, P. Price You ask mo what my Im
agination pictures Hcrantou in MlKJ It
almost takes my breath away to keen
pace with this young giant, lot nlnuo an
ticipating her growth and development a
few years hence. CJeograplcally I do nut
look for any irrent addition to our already
large area, with tbe exception of iJuumnre.
That borough cannot long remain obliv
ions to tbe advantages of being undor our
city government, enjoylngall the privileges
of luhabitanta of tbo central city, without
clamoring for admission. If she promises
good behavior we may admit her, which I
lmsgioe will end our annexations for some
time to come: but the territory that we
already hold will lie built np, making con
tinuous row of lino buildings from north
to soutu auu east to west oouuary lines.
As to tbe matter of wealth, I think the
average of those who aro accumulating
wealth In some lorm, eitiior real estate,
stock, or other investment above current
expenditures, will compare favorably with
Duainf hb men or any city or tie u nlon; this
fact alone gaurantee the) I'm uro of Scran
ton, together with the public spirit mani
fested ny tho mouled men of the city.
This I think will stand comparison with
auy city and is enough for me at least to
pin my rnitli to bcrautoii'a future great
ness. The next ten years lu the life of
Scranton will beyond doubt show greater
strides In 'the way of advancement thau
auy same length of time lu bar history .
What with our parks, bridges, the ex -tentlon
of Adams, Jefferson. Madison,
Muuroeand perhaps other of the avenues
through to Ureon Kldge, all paved In tho
best manner; most if not all culm dumps
rouioved from within tho city limits;
oomfurtablo houaes built In the suburbs,
where now are only vacant lots, relieving
the crowded condition of our alleys and
courts; the constant improvement in
style of architecture and beautifying of
yards and grounds around private resi
dences -all these features will tend to
make Scrauton equal other cities of per
haps greater fame. Will not Jefferson
avenue, wheu extended to tho northern
limits, ocenpied with magnificent houses
lti entire length, as It almost is at preseunet
equal the famous avenues of Huffalo, Det
tioit, or any other city. However, pur
hups my flights of iniBginntion make me
soar very high. I believe I have only
touched on what I have not tbe slightest,
doubt of witnessing In tho near future,
and will conclude by saying that there Is
no city that I know of that I would feel
more lke propheslug for thau this self
samo city of Scrauton.
Rev. W. H. Pesrce D. D.-What Scran
ton will be in 1000, 1 ennuot oaslly tell.
Even in the hard stress of these times
there is really nothing lauquid about It;
its pulse beats In healthy and rythmic
measure, aud it has a strong steady step
toward a splendid and over-enlarging
future. With its "beautiful for situation,"
with its uncounted stores of natural
wealth; with its mighty host of Intelligent,
enthusiastic, pushing business men; with
its clear-vlftioued board of trade, on the
tdert lor new enterprises, twinging bridge-",
planning parks mid embellishing every
where: with its splendid libraries, educu.
no alfacill ies, iiiHgottlcent churches, mas
sive pobde building-, and a Btroug sweet
spirit of unity and mutual helpfulness
among all of it people Scranton iu 19J0
will be greatly enlarged aud beautified,
aud musical with the ever increasing hum
of business mil the jorous tumult of a
happy prosperous people. So I forecast
H5.000 1'OSSIDLK POPULATION.
(1. P, Dimforth Tho ratio ol the pre
vious docade's increase will lie maintained
from a geographical point of view. All
history of the most, active and enterpris
ing sections of tbe I nited States warrants
the assumption that a distributing poiut
for a given section of surrounding country
will be iu demaud as proximity will afford
facilities, and about every given number
of square miles has its center of distribu
tion. Xorthensteru Pounsylvnuia slid tbe
lower sectiou of tho southern central
counties ol New Y'ork point Inevitably
towards Bcruulou as such a centre. From
n BnaOCial point Of view the growth from
the geographical point will be maintained
relatively iu n monetary increase lu local
wealth, financial influence will De addi
tionally augmented by the morul effect af
forded iu having great aud sound
QnauoUil Institutions guarded by in
tegrity, Judgment nnd conservatism;
thi Will, consequently, CaUe capital
to gravitate towards Hcrantou, as does the
magnet to tho pole. Thus far I claim two
points gained that Irresistibly incline to
t ho maiutaiuuncu of the past groat ratio of
increase. From a general standpoint I
will say that Influence seems to he at Work
which will unite our suburbs under one
municipality, aud that any rossounble
i a tins from the center of sll metropolitan
aggregalious will become a greater Scrau
ton, a greater New York, a greater Pitts
bnrg, etc. From these three points of
view 1 maintain that Sorantou lu A. I).
19. o will, it confined to present boiiudrles,
show a full count of 15,000 Inhabitauts;
but if it Is the greater Scranton, with Ouu
more and South Side extension, including
Mluuuka, I think such a municipality will
aggiurate Mi.WJ souls. Watch it and sue
how near 1 cjuie to tin correct guess.
RICHMOND SHAFT DISASTER.
Coronet's Jury Heatd Evldsno In th
Caa Last Night.
Coroner K-lly and Jurors J. F. Lof
tus, Bryan Fallon, J. H Ferber, James
Fahey, John Sykes and Owen Rich
ards conduoted an inquest last night at
the court bouse upon the deaths of the
four miners killed iu the Richmond
shaft. At 11 3i) o'clock thev adjourned
to meet .Monday night at 8 o'clock.
Fonr survivor of the gang in charge
of Howell, who with three others was
killed, were examine I, as well as
Turner and his shift, who left the lo
cality of tho nccidoat on being relieved
by the II. dwell shift. Mine Foreman
Hailstone, T. Hobsou and Richard
Williams, practical shaft sinkers, aud
A. Ackerman, a foroman, also testified.
The testimony in si'bstanc showed
that wheu tbe Turner shift left their
work near the rock which afterward
tumbled over upon the Holwell shift,
there, was no danger to be upprehanded,
and that Turner told Holwell he ought
not to work the coal out from the base
of the rock. Turner told hitn also that
if he (Holwell) thought it necessary, he
Holwell might put in a bunting, or
id-toide prop. Hailstone, Hoban,
Williams aud Ackerman were of the
opinion that the coal beneath the rock
was pushed out by an accumulation of
gas which let the miBs fall; the gas,
they thought, was generated by the
blasts set off by tbe Turner shift
Thi opinion was substantiated by the
snrvivor of the Holwell shift, who
swore they did not blast or pick away
any coal near the rock but were clean
ing up beneath it when it fell.

TOLD IN POLICE COURT.
Justice Dieted Out Yoatsrdiy to a Num
ber of Unfortunate
The first case tried before Mayor Con-
nell ut yesterday's 5 o'clock police court
was that of Mrs. tieore Hood, of
Taylorville, charged by Mr. Welcker,
of tbe fashion store, with shoplifting
Mr. Welcker said that a clerk at ths
store observed Mrs. Hood tucking the
artioles under ber waist while passing
out of the building. Officer O.ierletz
was called and found tne articles so
Mrs. Hood was accompanied in court
by a little 4-vear-old girl, who, sbe
stated, said sbe found the shaws on tbe
floor. She intended returned them as
soon ns she bad lunched, but was ar
rested meanwhile. The woman re
ceived considerably sympathy, as she
isevideutly slightly demented, and, be
sides the child with her hal two others
at home, one of which is a 8-weeks-old
babe. Mrs. Hood was held in 200
bail for appearance at court.
C. O. Hoffman, 80 years old. of
Cresco, who said he was an M. D. and
had received diplomas at Berlin, Heidel
berg and other Prussian cities,
answered to a charge of intoxication.
His age saved him, and the mayor dis
charged him with a warning.
John Thouini aud William Abel, of
Luzerne street and Lincoln aveauo re
spectively, were charge 1 with intoxica
tion and lighting. Thev alleged they
were ''just fooling." The mayor said
their fun wonld cost them $4 apiece.
John ii. C ui berUon, a years old
