THE CATHOLIC CHORAL UNION.
Concert at Laurel Hill Park At"
tended by Over a Thousand Peo
pleNames of the Members.
The concert of the Calholio Choral
union at Laurel Hill pirk lust night,
was attended by about 1,000 persons. It
proved to be a musical treat. The
choruses and other numbers were not
heard to the best effect iu the open air
but with allowance for this the singing;
can be said to have been excellent.
Tbe programme was opined with an
overture by Bauer's orchestra. Then
the choir sang "Dawn of Day" aud
made a good impression, which was
evidenced by the liberal applause which
the rendition was accorded. T.io choir
also sang ".Madeline" and Mozart's
"Gloria." It was in this last rendition
that they excelled.
The Ladies' cborns sang the "Bridal
of the Bird" aud "My True Love lluth
My Heart," numbers which will be
suugin the September competitions.
It is a well balauced chorus and will,
no doubt, make its competitor huitlo
iu the coming festival Miss Kate Sul
livan, Edward Wulsh and J. Connolly,
of St. Patrick's choir, rendered a trio,
"Beutidictus,'1 from Schubert's mass in
Or, which was especially worthy of
note. Two other txcelient numbers
were, the dust by the Jordan sisters,
"1 Would That My Love," and the
solo by Edward Walsh, "How Fair."
Miss Anna Durkiu was the accompa
nist aud Haydn Evans, the leader of
the union, conducted the sinjrinj.'. The

one, the father i-f the present viaduct
ordinance, wus present at tho meeliug
and spoke iu favor of its passage, lie
also cleurlv interpreted thw vat ions
provisions of tho measure and t'vo tho
committee some valuable hints in rela
tion to us p.issae.
As it now stands the ordinance vir
tually provides that tho city, the 1) ,
L. & W. company and tha Scrauton
Traction company shall each bocoiiw
parties to tho contract for tho erection
of tho bridge, so that in case one or the
other of the parties should fail to live
up to its agreement tbe others could
not be held liable for file amount
which Iho dolaulliug party promised
to bo responsible for.
The snag which -was encountered in
court in the. matter of tho appointment
of viewers is provided against by the
new ordioaucs. The viowers can make
their award after the ordinance be
comes a law and if tbe award is found
to be too high to make the construc
tion of the viaduct practicable the or
dinance cau be repealed.
There was considerable discussion on
the question of allowing the traction
company to lsy two tracks on thi via
duct, but when the city ongineor ex
plained that two tracki worn prefer

and James Manley for the oliicos of
common aud select council respectively
In the Twelfth ward, yesterday applied
to Judge Edwards for au extension of
time iu which to oifar testimony. It is
contended iu the affidavits presented
thatthe contestants have not as yet hud
sufficient opportunity to present their
case, because they agreed to short hear
ings to oblige the attorney for the re
spondents, with the understanding that
they should have all the time they
wanted to fully make out their case.
Attorney John F. Murphy deniod
that there had been such a swooping
reduction aud claimed thatthe plea for
an extension of time was a trick to get
in another bill of particulars.
Judge Edwards decided tbut he had
no power to make an order intbe case,
but allowed Mr. Connolly's itQl lavit to
be filed, the matter to coma Iff ore the

WHAT WILL SCSANTORIASS'DO
Mr. Boies Says, That tho Whole Mat

Charities Is Willing to Meet Them
Half Way In a Movsment to Give
This City Better Hospital Facilities.

and us the Licl: iwunn a hospital is tilt

larly of that institution. Toe cominniit
and interest created by this stil jeot

welfare at heart invites a further con
sideration of tlin matter.
Colomd II M. Bull's, who isftinom
lier of the statu hoard of charities
which reo.iiiiiut'uds or disapproves bills
ior charitable npiil' 'priations before
Ihoir presentation to the legislature,
was seen yesterday by a TninuNE n
porier an 1 said :
"Tho public Liu but a stiiall coiicp

$8 UUO.OIM), and yet J.'), 0(10,000 remained;
so you can perceive tii.tt demand of
this kind must be backed by a worthy
otj.ct mid include certain conditions
which I shall mention later.
"For years the state board has
worked toward the otid of making com
munities support their own charitable
institutions It is uot fair that Pitts
burg should be taxed to help support a
purely local olj ct li Scrantou, nor
vice versa. I only mention this so you
will understand why the board is dis
posed to curtail state appropriations
for local purposes. Some day.it may
not be for years to come, this idea and
its purpose will prevail.
WHAT WILI, TI1U I'EOI'f.E DO?
"Now ns far as this movement to
ward enlarging till L icka wanna twpi
tul or building a now hospital is con
cerned, I, ns n citizen, ntu inclined
favorably toward it, and as a membjr
of the state board of charities would
recommend whichever plan is b.'et,
proviJed tbn people of the city will
meet the state half way. Thu policy of
the hoard has been to favor only such
ohjocts as are grounded upon the
proper spirit as well its the financial
support of tho city or locality from
which such ol j'.'cts emanate.
"The statement that a number of
cities smaller than Bcranton have su
perior hospitals does not imply that
they are more gocerously treated by
the state. That a greater umount of
money bus been appropriated them is
true; but it is ulso true that these sev
eral cities have been more disposed to
contribute their share."
In answer to questions, particularly
in relation to increased hospital facili
ties in Scrantou, Colonel Boies said:
"The suggestion that a new and
thoroughly equipped hospital be built
ou one of the niuny available sanitary
locations is a good one, uud I should
perlinpa favor the West Sido. The
Delaware, Lackawanna und Western
company owns acres of unimproved
luhd in that section of the city uud
from their pois-jssions could well af
ford and would probably contribute a
suitable site for so coiumendat u pur
pose; anyhow, I do not thin there
would be auy difficulty iu procuring
real estate without expenditure. Tbe
whole question hinges ou tho spirit of
citizens generally and tho generosity of
Ol'INIOX OF Mil, PARR
The sentiment of Hon. John It. Farr,
representative from the First district, is
voiced in his editorial iu the last issue
of the Courier-Progress, of Hyde Park.
Mr. Fair says;
"The Lackawanna hospital will have to
be removed from its prosout site if It is
expected to be as efficient as u hospital
of its kind in a city liko Scrauton
should be. In view of that fact ic should
b located in Uyd.i Park, whoro points
entirely convenient to the city at Inrue cau
be found. The other sido of the river has
the Mines Taylor hospital convenient,
whilo tho entire West fido has no accom
modation, except at great ineou
vunieiicea unit loss of time, tlio
nearest point being on tho corner of
Franklin avenue and Mulberry street.
This is a question that will como up iu the

With a prospect of smooth sailing in the

lature and plenty of oultnble and aviiilatilo
laud, Colonel Holes' expro-sioii, that "the
question hinga3 ou the spirit of citizens
generally ana tho generosity of corpora

tquarely on the head

furnish enough mldliioual to e-.tablisli a

such an event, the further sum necessary
to build aud maintain could ba obtained

TEST OF THE CHEMICAL ENGINE.
It Proved Very Satisfactory Wit
nessed by a Number of Council
men and Citizens.
Tho wisdom of councils in expending
money f,,r the purchase of t lie new
chemical engine was riiccesslully dem
onstrated at 4 o'clock yesterday after
noon, when the test of tho new ma
chine was made) at JoIiiisou'h lake
croii'i la. Fin moil from the diff-rt-nt
city conipiiuic84nndKr the direction ot
Chief Engineer f'erber erected a lurijo
heap of dry goo Is boxes and barrels.
Inside the boxes hay was gtuffod and
several gallons of keiosene were thrown
on the heap.
The chemical engine was brought
facing the bluzo, and when tht pile
was a mass of flaiues, Chief Ferb-r
gave the order to turn on the chemi
cals. The nff-ct was iiistttntiin-ous
Wherever tbe liquid touched the box-s
the tire vanished rapidly, and tho hose
was brought around the burning pile
and directed on every part of it. The
fire on the circumference was all ex
tinguished, but on the inside tbe blaze
wus very fierce,
Chief Ferber ordored the stream
taken off, and ho waited until the pile
was again a mass of fl tines. Theet cond
time he gave orders to his men to et
to work und qumicli the fire, iu real
earnest. One with a long pike ran in
and tcattered thu boxes und the chemi
cals were turned no the se-coud thui.
Before one could have time to think,
the sight before him was transformed
fiom a seething mass of ll.iina to a lit
ter of blackened and emuktng dry
It was a most satisfactory experi
ment and was witnessed by a lare
crowd of people. The superiority of
the chemical engine over the use of the
hoso was noticed not only on account
of tho greater alacrity with which the
chemicals exceed water iu extinguish
ing fire, but ulso the fact that ic does
not damage anything it touohes nor
cause a Hood.
The chemicals evaporate as soon cs
tbey strike tbe fire and the place is us
dry afterward as before a drop was
turned on. At yesterduy's test it re
quired nearly 100) gallons to txiinuuish
the fire. But the tanks, when emptied,
can be recharged without any delay
