The opening event on tbe two days
programme of exercises attending the
dedication of the new Franklin av-nne
club house of Scranton lolge 128,
Benevolent and Protective Order ol
Elks, wus a ladies' promenade retep
tiou. Tho event last evening attracted
nearly 000 guests, who listened to u
well chosen programme of music, ad
mired the spleudid lurnishlngs of the
club rooms and lodge hull, and inci
deully received new impressions as to
the quality, luiguitude. enterprise and
good talta of Scranton Elks
The reception began at 8 o'clock.
Guests after disposiug of their wraps
in two well arranged cloak rooms, were
escorted into what will ou ordinary oc
casions be the wnist and smoking room
at tho Eik's club, ou the second floor.
This room is bandsomslv fiuished In
blue, with stereo-relief work on walls
and ceiling, and is equipped with com
tortublo tables and chairs. Adjoining
it is the billiard room, which is quietly
colored in pule blue, with frescoed
wulls and ceilings, and carpeted in
Axmiuister with rare designs.
Through folding doors and under
tnsletnlly draped chenille curtains, the
procession of gu- -ts next entered the
club parlor, whose richness nud sul
dued air ot Mugnifioenoe elicited in
numerable expressions of praise. It is
finished in ivory and gold, with wall
panels tinted with a delicated bleud of
sky blue snd sreatt), and with the over
head panels beauiiiully adorned with
designs in water colors, the central
panel representing cherubs ot pluy in
a bower of roses. Presenting a note
worthy contrast with the daintiness of
these mural decorations was the ex
quisite furniture in upholstered mo
rocco, and the front draperies in che
nille relieved by real old Iiish poiat
luce portierraj. An impressive annul
view canvassed with uncommon fidel
ity rested upon a tasty easel in one
corner, while opposite stood a Shaw
piano, in Satinwood finish. Every de
tail of this parlor betokened a delic icy
and optness of selection wnich were
much remarked by discerning visitors;
and on the Second floor, amoug many
interesting features, tho parlor dourly
monopolized attention.
Opening from the parlor, through it
small archway, lay the reading room,
somewhat smaller, but otherwise fully
as beautiful. Wall tints and ceiling
panels correspou'ied with those of the
parlor and the only difference Will that
the woodwork, instead of being treated
In ivory and gold, were stained In the
old baronial finish. Upon a table at
one end of the room lay copies of the
leading magazines; while in the oppo
site corner an opened register beckoned
visiting Elks to attach theirautogruphs.
The entire second lliori intended to
be used by members and viaitiug Elks
as upurtmnuts iu a social club. These
roems will be open to them during all
hours of the day and until midnight at
The lodgo room proper occupies tho
greater portion of the third floor and
has a balcony capable of accommodat
ing I'M persons. Entrance is made to
it from two doors, each door entering
from waiting rooms in the rear. The
auditorium is 75x40 feet in size and is
over '20 feet high. Tbe ceiling is a
magnificent revelation of artistic
stereo-relief work with tints of buff
and gold and cream and blue. Three
pendant elustersof incandescent elec
tric bulbs, with glass caudlebra, jets
for gas imposed above, depend from
the arched ceiling, supplying light of
uncommon brilliancy.
At the hall's npper end, upon a raised
dais, nnder a eauopy of gilt and ivory,
stands the upholstered morocco chair
of the exalted ruler. To his left is the
secretary's desk and to his right last
evening stood the piano which accom
panied the various vocal numbers. The
etivre end of the hall, back of the ex
alted ruler's cbsir, is a mass of beauti
fnlly intertwined chenille nud damssk
draperies, while on tbe platform, in
front, stood bank upon bank of ex
quisite potted plants and forus, Tbe
stNtions of the three other executive
officers of tbe lodge were similarly, al
though not so conspieiomly denoted ;
and banks of plants and roses clotted
the entire line of raised chairs for the
use of lodge members.
Concentric rows of chairs were placed
in tbe Moor space of the hall until al
most the entire center was occupied by
women, many of whose escorts were
content to stand at u distance and contemplate-
the blended elegance of tho
room, tho beauty of its fair occupants
and the witching hues of the ladies'
gowns. Bauer's complete orchestra
discoursed sweet strains from the bal
cony, a quartette comprising Mrs
O 'Brian, Miss Richmond, Mr. Siebecker
and Mr Watkins, sang several num
bers chnrmingly, aud Mrs. O'Brien,
Mr. Watkins and the Misses Reynolds
sang pleasingly in solo and duet tium
lers, eaeh number receiving generous
favor. Refreshments were served in
tbe smoking room below.
Among the several hundred guests
present, in addition to the lo iga's mem
hers and th-ir ladies, was Grand Sacra
tary Allen O Myer. of C lumbas, O.,
who represented the officers of the

A large force of men in charge of

started by an incendiary. Who the
fire fiend is cannot be learned, and its
far as known, no attempt was made
yesterday morning to locate him dur
nig the early stages of the blaze Mr.
Frotliingham is inclined to disbelieve
any story of incendiarism, but tha
cold facts remain that the incipient
fires of late and finally the extensive
one can be easily moulded into a cu
rious coincidence.
Tbe fire will not In any way intr
fere with the attractions advertised for
next week. Fortunately nothiug had
been booked for the present wek. The
theater box office until further notice
will bo located at Powell's music store.

The Subject Was Freely Discussed at
Last Night's Meeting of the Lacka
wnnna County Medical Society.
What the Doctors Said Resolution
Passed Recommending Vaccination
as a Preventive of the Disease.
The Lackawanna County Medical
society held an interesting meeting in
the arbitration room of the court
house last evening. Tner were prei
mi Di'j. Williams, Park, Capwell,
Rally, Gates, Rea, Bateaou, Connor,
Logan, Fulton aud Underwood. Dr.
Willi iins pivsid-d.
"The Human Temp-ram -ntn and
Their Application in Medicine" was
the inbj ct of an interesting piper
re-.d by Dr. J. 0, Baleson. The diff -r
.nt teinperm uts were scientifically
classitiel and 1 he necessity of their tn
ing understood by the physiciau was
clearly pointed out, The pap -r was
iiscuss 'd oy Drs R., Loan, U ider
wood, Capwell and others, all of whom
endoraed the views so comprehensively
set forth by the author.
Dr. Connor introduced the sinject of
smallpox. He said the disease pre
vailed in Danville and Williaraaport,
aud that Pittston bad quarantined
against the former place. Bingham
ion was also discussiug whether to
quarantine or not. It is not generally
known, he state 1, that smallpox pre
vuils in the Parlor City, as all men
tion of the fact has been kept out of
tho papers. Tne dostor dwelt upo-i
tlie necessity of vaccination in the pub
lie schools of the city.
Dr. Logan ssld that In 1881 the vac
cination in the schools was a success,
as was evideuced by the fact thai
although smallpox raged all around us
at tht time, yet there wereonly three
deaths in tlie ciiy lrom the disease.
Than the schools were vi-ited and the
children examined and vaccinated in'
cases where n.cessary. He thought it
time lor tbe society t act,
Dr, Capwell thought there had been
a good deal of dwadling In the matter.
He enquired as to wnat ths board of
healtu bad done and was told that word
b id been aeut to the echools that the
children soon d be Vacclumed,
Dr. Williams an 1 Dr. U ates also
spoke on tne sut j int. The latter stated
that there was a Very general vaccina
tion in the wiuier oi 18813, but there
bad been Comparatively aula since, al
thong. 1 a larga crop of children had
been grown since that time. Tnere are
cranks of all kinds to deal with, he
said, and opposition might bs ex
pected from tlie class who orgunize
auti-vacciuution societies, but it wus
theontyol physicians 10 employ this
humane method of guarding again it a
tvrritde disease.
Some difference of opinion existed -is
to just what the hoard of health had
done toward having tho suggestion of
ths state snpuriutenJ-oit of public in
struction that school cuil ireu bi v ic
oinated, carried out. Dr. Fulton
enquired as to the powers ol tne bo.,rl
to compel TuColn tion 111 the schools.
Several of the doctors expressed thair
surprise that smallpox had not ap
peared in this city, owing to its pr va
lence urouu 1 about it.
Dr. Logan offered the following res
olmiou -
Resolved, That the society request
the board of health to recomni'iid vac
cination to all persons ,w tne city w .0
uave .not been vaccinated within ten
Dr. Bateson moved to amend the
resolution by c-usingit to read sev-n
years itistead of ten. The amendment
was accepted and the resolution unani
mously adopted.
After computing the usual rou ine
business the society adjourned to its
regular uieeiiug nUbt.
