AT THE THEATERS.
Although Hoyt's "A Trip to China
town" has been seen in Scranton, it has
never been presented here by tbe original
New York company tbe company which
created its characters and gave the play
the impetus which kept it going at Hoyt's
New York Fifth Avenue theater for more
consecutive nights than any other play in
the United States. The actors, the comedy
and tbe characters portrayed have been
made a theatrical byword throughout the
country, and Scranton playgoers should
not miss the opportunity of seeing
the combination at the Acad
emy tonight. Its situations are
tbe most unusual, yet real, ever
concocted by a playwright and it is Hoyt's
masterpiece. Harry Connor will depict
the character of tbe "man with one foot
in the grave," who, nevertheless, is the
famous lively invalid. Mrs. Guyer, the
Chicago widow, who is not too strenuous
on culture, but makes up-for it in "biff,"
will be portrayed by Ueraldine McCaun.
Sadie Kirby, the maid; Harry Gilfoil, the
versatile waiter; Margaret McDonald, the
"soft mark" clnbman, and George A. Bean,
jr., tbe gay bachelor, are in the company.
Last, but not least, is little Bessie Clay
ton, who has kicked and danced her way
Into popular New York favor. This is her
first engagement outside tbe large cities.
t t t
At tbe Frotbicgbam this evening tbe
Reno & Williams company, supporting
Miss Laura Alberta, will present Sydney
Grundy's "An Arabian Night." Tomorrow
evening "The Clemencean Case" will again
be offered. Tbe company last evening
proved that all its playe'rs are artists,
which cannot be said o'f all companies.
Each is clever in bis or her particular line.
This evening's performance will be Inter
spersed with pleasing specialties.
Lewis Morrrison, who will be seen at
the Academy of Musio tomorrow evening
in "Fanst" makes one believe that how
ever bluse we may become and however
worldly, there is still something in our in
nermost natures that is attracted and fas
cinated by the weird and uncanny, tbe
unreal and ghostly. This fact is evidenced
by the eagerness with which the public
crowd to witness plays of the character ot
"Faust!" with its contingent ot demons,
witches and other denizens of the
nether regions. Aside from this ele
ment in "Faust," however, as
given by the Lewis Morrison company,
there is much of a different nature since
the character of Mephistopheles as inter
preted by Mr. Morrison becomes almost a
comedy role at times. Lewis Morrison
has long been known to tbe American pub
lic as a good actor of a variety of parts,
but bis greatest success has been gained ot
late years by his masterly performacce in
Goethe's masterpiece. It is said that ke
is surrounded this season by the best com
pany be has ever bad in bis support, in
cluding the charming young actress, Miss
Florence Roberts, who will appear in the
role ot Marguerite.

To the lovers of the wierd and the un

the gifted magician and exponent ot leger

charming of entertainers, a blear out ar
tist, an allnsionest of wonderful adept
ness and past master in tbe art of palmis
try. It is said of him that do quicker or
smoother workman ever .baffled the eye.
His stage presence is pleasing, his mono
logue is bright and brisk, his languid air
faultless and his manners delightful. His
methods are a pleasing departure from tbe
worn ruts of bis predecessors. Powell is

magicians, who multiply mysteries, mak

times be seems to be leagne with the un

Tbe eneacrement of the Watson Rlafara

ment is entiMoa to considerable c.edlt tor

attraction. To enumerate the performers

CITY'S WATER SUPPLY VISITED
Typhoid Fever Has Disappeared
from Elmhurst Splendid Reser
voir at Williams Bridge, Which
Feeds the High Service Oam
Preparations Being Made by the
Scranton Gas and Water Company
to Build an Immense Dam.
Yesterday was apent by the board of
health, sanitary committee ot eonncils
and newspaper representatives on a
visit of inspection to tbe dams and
streams of the Scranton Gas and Water
company. Superintendent Robert
Reeves was along, as was Superin
tendent John B. Fisb, of tbe Provi
dence Gas and Water company.
The high service reservoir at tbe
bead of No. 6 plane, above Dan more,
was first visited. Tbla reservoir con
sists of a double dam and holds fS,009, -000
gallons ot water. It Is tea from
tbe Stafford Meadow brook and supplies
only tbe high points Id the city, in the
neighborhood of Clay avenue and Gam
mon's bill on tbe West Side.
No. 1 dam at Elmhurst, which is the
main resource of the city, receives tbe
overflow from the dam a mile above.
The upper one receives the water fr ora
tbe Roaring brook stream, but at pres
ent the water Is not used. It is fer
menting and not until it settles will
tbe gates be opened. Tbe upper dam,
or Curtis reservoir, was stocked, four
years ago with 60,000 California trout,
thus insuring an agreeable absence ot
aolmal matter, which serves as food to
tbe pisoatorial dwellers, Along the
stream above the dams thsre are no
causes from whteh might arias a con
tamination of the water.
THAT ELMHURST TANNERY.
"Below No. 1 dam on tbe mala street
In Elmhurst stands a tannery, whioh
was operated yeara before tbe reser
voirs were built. This is the only ob
jectionable feature along the prepsrty
or toe water company.
It is a case of difference of opinion
whether the tannery need be dreaded.
Tbe waste water when it leaves tbe
mill runs through a lime fitter, emp
ties into a trench and flows a half mile
through soft purifying soil before emp
tying into the creek. And then this
waste water is bat ths escape from tbe
supply which feeds the engines. Tbe
nanssating refuse, eommon to all tan
neries is contiued in a cement
ed cavity with no means of acoess to
the stream, and is hauled away or soli
to the tamers for fertilizing purposes.
Superintendent Roevea explained that
the Gas and Water company had un
successfully endeavored to purchase
tbe tannery and have it removed, not
because it befouls the water, bat to
satisfy the people.
While a lunob.furnisheij by Superin
tendent Reeves, was being enjoyed, a
pleasant visit wag had from Dr. Bate
son, health officer of tbe Elmhurst
board of health He conveyed tbe
cheering tidings that tbe typhoid epi
demic in that village was a matter of
Leaving Elmhurst, tbe beads of
the horses were turned toward
Stafford Meadow valley, five miles
sway. After tbis long journey through
the autumnal wildwood, around a bend
in the road the sight spread out for the
party's gaze was tbe splendid new res
ervoir at William's bridge. Tbe stream
which feeds this dam flows from its
sou roe, between mountains and over a
rocky bed, as pare as when
the Indians roamed in the for
est, and it emptiej almost
as pare as tbe rain from
tbe clouds. Tbis is tbe dam from which
the high service reservoir at No. 6 is
fed. It is the purest water that is
furnished to the city. Down in tbe
deep basin in front of the reservoir
babbles up a pare spring, the water ot
which is impregnated with a heaithfnl
taste of iron ore, and to tbis Superin
tendent Rieves brought the members
of tbe party to quaff from It and form
an Idea of the quality of the water in
tbe reservoir, which is the same.
Leaving this body of water tbe party
baited at the place known as "The
Burned Bridge," a bait mile below.
A STUPENDOUS UNDERTAKING.
At this point Superintendent Reves
brought the carriages to a standstill
and explained the purpose of the Gie
and water company, relative to tbe
proposed new reservoir.
A natural bssln covering 160 acres,
better known as tbe "eld Hitchcock
swamp, will be made the basin of a
new reservoir, the capacity ot which
will be nearly 2 000,009,000 gallons of
watsr. It is thirty feet lower than the
Williams' bridge reservoir, on the same
stream, and is seventy feet above the
high etrvios reservoir. The work of
bmlding it will probably begin in-Jan
nary and be finished In September, A
tnnnei l.tsuu feet long will be bored
through the mountain to eonnect the
main with the high service dams,-and
tbis supply will be furnished to all
parts of the elty.
This territory adjoins tbe Defran
farm over which so mneh litigation
has sprang. The land ia now being
cleared and drained. When tbe reser
voir is built it will cover op the road
way, bot the water company intends
to build a stone arch over the spillway
ana contract another road around tbe
banks of the dam.
The No. 5 reservoir on the Stafford
Meadow creek was not visited, because
of the impending darkness. A .trip
win ot maae to it in a week or so.
With that exception ths annual tonr
of tbe beard ot health was finished
The expense of ths trio is a hundred
fold repaid to tbe taxpayers from tbe
benefit in pur water derived.
Captain Burke and Food Inspector
Thomas took along a sample ot the
uimaorst water for analysis. . , .

KEENS A3 RICHELIEU.
Strong Performance Giv.n on tbe Acad

A distinguished audience at the
Academy last evening witnessed, en
joyed and applauded tbe strong aotiag
of Mr, Keeoe, the tragedian, in Lord
Lyttons masterpiece, "Richelieu,
Mr. Ksene is almost the one actor ot

There was in it at every point the

polish of an art wblob, despite
much knocking about, ha yet remained
true to bigb Ideals. In the swift suc

stood before ui, not as actor merely,
Dot as tbe part itself.
Perhaps it is ungrateful to remark,
so closely following the recollection of

was not far removed from mediocrity.
With costumes both aoeurate and
handsome, and stage accessories in

disappointing to witness the strong

The board of trade held a lengthy
meeting last night. The report of the
manufacturer's committee is herewith
The location in Scranton of a plant for
the manufacture of taoestrv carpets we
believe would be a paying investment and
for the purpose of bringing tbe matter
intelligently before you, we have asked
tbe gentleman who Is at present largely
interested in tbe carpet business and
thoroughly conversant witn an or tne uo
tails connected with it to speak to us on
tnls subject this evening.
Tbe Eureka Cash and Credit Register
company, of Elmira, N. Y., have made
the following proposition to us, viz. : In a
stock company to be formed in Scranton ,
capitalized at $150,000, tbey will put in
their entire interest in tbe register and
printing businets, which includes, pat
ents, machinery, stocK on nana, agents
outfits, sood will etc., for $75,000 and take
pay in stock of the company. The con
cern Known as tne ttcranton liidd .turn
ing company are to put iu tbeir entire
plant, including ground, buildings, ma
chinery, etc., for $150,01)1). There Is to be
left In the treasury $20,000 of the stock
which tbe lmira people nave tne option
to buy at par within two years. Forty
thousand dollars of the stock is to be sold
for working capital. We have looked into
tbis matter carefully, we consider the in
vention a practical and useful one aud
should be in every store doing a credit
business. The proposition we consider a
fair one and tbat if properly managed a
handsome profit can be realized, We
therefore recommend it to capitalists.
WILL SOLICIT 8CBSC!UPriON3.
The representative of the carpet fac
tory arrived late at the meeting from
New York and took the floor to expluln
bis industry. The plan is to pat up a
plant furnished with forty looms to
start with. Tbe gentleman has studied
tbe csrDst market and the new tariff,
and believes that carpet can bemiua
factured so cheaply as to guarantee a
proht. The building will be ldUsSU
and three storlrS bigb. It will
cost $-'2,000 to build it. The capi
tal stoclt he figures at fl-iUOUO, or
which be will subscribe $35,000 him
self. He gave facts and figures aud
was substantiated by S, (i. Kerr. Girls
employed In the factory will receive
wages averaging $7 a week. The chair
will appoint a committee at the nut
meeting to solicit stock subscription.
Mr. Dickson, of the building com
mittee, reported gratifying progress.
He said that subscriptions amounting
to half tbe total sum have already
been secured. He preoipitated a spicy
discussion by a motion tbat tbe board
invest its treasury balance of $700
through its trustees in shares in the
new building. Secretary Athcrton
said that there is yet to be
paid on tbe last assessment
$1,100, aud for baok dues the
delinquent list aggregates $1,200.
Mr. Connell wanted to see $1,000 in
the treasury before investing that
amount. He said that be bad no id- a
tbe board was ready to go into the
building project nntll tbe strneture
shall be completed. Several others op
posed Mr. Dickson's idea and be finally
withdrew bis motion.
AFTER MEMBERS IN ARREARS
The motion of Mr. Kellar was oar
ried, amended by Mr. Connell, instruct
ing the secretary to notify all members
In arrears for nine months' dues to
settle np before the next meeting, oth
erwise tbe accounts will be collected
through the attorney.
Tbe South Side board of trade sent
