"Dr. Burnett is a po.sihU candid -for
sheriff," said one of the promin
ent Democrats composing the ma
chine, when asked for tbe latest move
of the shite makers last night. Astrong
effort has been made to L lus J. G
Bailey to accept the uomin ."on for the
shrievality, but be can not be Induced
to give a definite answer. His candi
dacy is favored by ex-Sheriff Robin
It Burnett runs , for sheriff John

J. H. Brayton, a Printer Living; on
Penn Avenue, Hangs Himself
in Nay Aug Park.
Tbe dead body of a man was found
hanging to a tree on tbe outskirts of
Nay Aug park, at the intersection of
Arthur avenue and Linden street, yes
terday afternoon at 5 o'olock, by Fred
Luther, of 409 Irving avenue.
He iuformed Chief of Police Simp
son, who went to the scene with Mayor
Connell and Officer Johler. Mayo
Coanell ordered the body cut down and
Undertaker Ranb nrrlved with an ice
box. Coroner Kelly empaneled tbe
following jury: John T. Brown, John
Raub, Thotnaj Stanton, Officer 9. E.
Sloat, Officer Thomas Lowrv and John
P. Nolan.
Tbe dead man was apparently 50
years of age, fairly well dressed and
wore a gold watou and ohain. Ia bis
pookets were found a few dollars in
coin and a working card from Bine
hamton Typographical union, No. 283,
for tbe year 189-1, made out in the qaine
of J. H. Brayton. He lived with his
wife in a suite of rooms on Penn ave
nue and had been sick for a wsek with
malarial fever.
Tbe coroner's jury returned a verdict
that he came to his death by hanging
himself with a rope.
"Shaft No. 2," which will be produced
at the Frothingbam Friday night abounds
In mechanical electric effects surprisingly
realistic. Tnis play was written by Frank
L. Blxby to bring before tbe audience
that class of sctiuR pertaining to every
day people, ftituations are introduced of
entirely different types ot acting, more of
every day life being incorporated in the
work by the autbor to reaoh those minds,
who in the past have never been attended
to. That immense scope of displaying
seusational scenic effects is more than pro
vided for by "Shaft No. 2." In the third
act where tbe villian is struck by a light
ning bolt ia the stage centre has never
been attempted before. The Philadelphia
press speak very highly of this one scene.
Box office open for advance sale ot seats
this morning.
Tbe bill at the Academy of Mnsio for
next Tuesday needs little more than the
bare announcement that it is Gus Hill's
novelties. His name and reputation are
sufficient iu themselves to secure good aud
iences at every performance. Regarding
this season's attractions, the Pittsburg
Post has the following to say of their re
cent appearance there: "It ia almost use
less to say anything about the company at
the Academy of Music this week. Gus
Hill's name at the bead of the organiza
tion is sufficient guarantee of ,its make-up,
as probably no variety manager iu the
country has heade I h many good com
panies as those of Mr. Hill, unless it be
Tony Pastor. Each member of the com
pany is selected because he or she do their
parts better than anyone else, and it Is un
necessary to go iuto details of the perform
ance, because before the week is out every
one will have seen it. If the hou-e last
night is to be taken as model, Manager
Williams had better begin bis extra mat
inees soon if he wants to give everyone a
chance to see his attractions."

There is more trouble I r?wine be
tween tbe Scranton in; I Pittstou Trao

Luckawauu township. Contractor P.
S. Page yesterday got ready to begin
the extension of tbe Miuooka and
Greenwood line. Tbe material is dis

The right of way over this road was
granted to the company in 1892 by P.
J. Connolly and William R Joues,
then supervisors of Lackawanna town
ship, nnd by virtue of this grant the
company prepared to build tracks. The
present supervisors served notice on
Contractor Page that if he begun tbe
building of the tracks, they would re
quire him to leave the driveway in as
good a condition as he found it.
Right here is tbe poiut where tbe
rub comes in. If the company agreed
to widen tho road to make it passable,
theje.ipense entailed would amount to
an enormous figure. The supervisors are
determined that the company must file
a bond sufficient to indemnify them
against all probable damage snitb, as
well as guarantee that the road will be
From the present terminus of tbe
line to Moosic, the turnpike road is
very narrow and a street car track
would occupy it almost wholly. The
ground is a bed of hard pan, and tons
of dynamite would be required to
blast it.
If tbe company consents to do what
tbe supervisors waat it to do, the
dividends for the next tea years will
not be worth distriontiog; and the
supervisors are determined that tbe
road must be widened.
A conference between the lawyers
on both sides today inuy bring about
amicable proceedings.

Some one has said of tbe great evan

It was this desire that first led him
to teaeb the ragged urchins of Ciiieago.
It was thlsidesire that brought to him
the power and the opportunity to sway
larger audiences of men and women

Iu spite of intense weariness from
over-work, the result ot bis great
campaign in Cnicago, Mr. Moody has
not retted but has gone from one oity
to another with his workers, and as
one of them said recently he has never
preached with such force and power
as now.
Scranton owes a debt of gratitude to
Mr. Moody which can nevor be repaid.
