Tlace Where. Local Securities Caa Be
Bought and Sold.
BOARD OP TRADE'S EXCHANGE
W. TV. Watson, W, H. Peek and C. D.
Simpson the Special Investigating
Committee Many Firms Knocking
at the Door-Several May Enter.
The idea of establishing a local secur
ity exchange in connection with the
board of trade was discussed at last
night's meeting of the board. The pro
ject was received with Interest, created
nome discussion and was finally re
ferred to' a special committee. The
subject was introduced by Secretary
Atherton at the suggestion of several
members. It is proposed to extend the
buying or selling privileges to the public
generally, board members to be relieved
of any commission, but non-members to
be charged the usual brokerage.
President May's opinion was that the
matter is one of the most important
ever considered by the board. To nego
tiate margin deals or become a medium
of speculation, he said, is not the object
Mr. Atherton moved that the matter
be referred to a speciul committee,
which was announced as follows: At
torney W. W. Watson, V. H. Peck,
cashier of the Third National bank, and
C. D. Simpson.
Want to Come to Scrunton.
The report of the manufacturers' com
mittee was adopted as follows:
The following concerns have applied
to us and have expressed a strong de
Bire to locate their plants In this city
owing to the many natural advantages
we .have to offer them: T. W. Wheat
ley, WIlkes-Barre; electric non-conductor;
A. L. Thomas, New York., crucker
and fancy backery; W. M. Whitney
company, Courtland, N. Y.,wagon man
ufacturers; R. & H. Adams, Patterson,
N. J., silk manufacturers; Augusta Silk

pillon, O.,' friction clutch pullies; Clay
ton Lawrence, Reading, Pa., manufac
turer of onyx tables; Holland Kadiatur
company, Breme, Ind., radiators; J. R.
White, Philadelphia, tapestries and car
pets. "After investigation by your commit
tee and considerable correspondence by
our secretary we find it will be useless
to give the application further consid
eration, and therefore recommend that
they be ordered filed without further ac
tion by this board.
"As to the Magee Tapestry Carpet
plant and the Eureka Cash and Regis
ter company, we beg to report progress
with a reasonable assurance that one or
both of them will ultimately be es
tablished in Scranton. There are sev
eral other matters pending on which
we will report at a later meeting.
"The large number of applications be
ing received is a sure Indication that
our city is becoming known as a most
favorable place for manufacturing and
that our efforts during the present year
in the way of advertising are bearing
fruit that will ultimately be the means
of bringing many desirable industries
to this city.
LUTHER KELLER, chairman."
The Consolidation Project.
A special committee appointed to con
sider the advisability of consolidating
various minor boards of trade of the
city and Dunmore reported to this
effect : That in case the chairman Is in
formed, the so-called boards of trade
of other sections of the city have ap
pointed Blmilar committees, a Joint
meeting will be held ; otherwise the com
mittee asked to be discharged. The re
port was signed by J. A. Lansing, J. H.
Torrey and H. E. Paine. Mr. Lansing
stated that since filing the report, the
West and South. Side boards nau ap-
ilnted BDeclal consolidation commit

bership, the membership of T. II. Watts
was transferred to H. C. McKenzle, and
the application of E. H. Davis and J. R.
Schlager, recommended by the secre
tary, were received.
CITY'S GOOD HEALTH.
Inrmlng Rumors and Official Health lie
ports Do Not Harmonize.
Only seventeen deaths from all causes
were reported to the board of health
last week. This is the smallest num
ber reported for any similar period
wince the early summer and the figures
bear out last week's report of Health
OHlcer Allen that the general health of
the city is better than for four years.
Other figures in last week's report do
not harmonize with a prevailing sup
position that contagious diseases, par
ticularly typhoid, are prevalent Last
week one death resulted from diptheria,
one from typhoid and four from con
sumption; there were two new cases of
diptheria, one of typhoid and two of
scarlet fever. No information has been
received that typhoid has become epi
demic at Elmhurst. This fact. In con
nection with the figures given above
and the satisfactory analysis of ' the
city's drinking waters, should reassure
many persons who have been unduly

IN LOCAL THEATERS.
"The Limited Mall," Elmer K A ance's
realistic railroad comedy drama, which
comes to the Academy of Mus c this
evening for one night only, is a well
conceived melodrama with a remark
able series of exciting and decidedly
thrilling situations. It deals with rail
roads and railroad people. It contains
telegraphers, tramps, section men and
train wreckers. There are clicking tele
graph instruments, realistic engines,
palatial Pullmans and railway pos
tal cars, tracks, hand-cars, switches
and tunnels, and the railroad Is utilized
on the stage as it has never been before,
for the author was a telegraph operator
and train despatcher at Columbus, O.,
for years, and his leisure time was not
devoted to loafing or dissipation,, nor
to empty observations about the depot;
but he saw the "limited malls" come
and go dally and nightly, and he hus
given them their orders.

Tomorrow night Bartley Cambell's
play, "The Galley Slave," will be given
at the Academy of Music. Many promi
nent artists of today mnde their first
hit in "The Galley Slave," among them
James O'Neil, of "Monte Christo" fame,
Frederick DeBelvllle and Jeffreys
Lewis. The success of the play In this
country led the author to secure its
presentation in London, where a run of
350 nights at the Princess theater was
made. Wilson Barrett at that time
played the leading role. In ten years
"The Galley Slave" amassed the for
tune of $250,000, and was withdrawn
from the road at the time of the author's
death, owing to difficulties which arose
regarding the rights of the play. These
iliiliculties have been settled and the
play is now touring the principal cities
under the direction of the playwright's
sons, Robert and John S. Campbell.

For the production of "Old Glory" at
the Academy of Music next Thursday
evening. Manager Brady has engaged
a cast of talented actors and actresses,

province, Is a well known star; James
Home, who portrays the hero, was with
the "Soudan" last season as the leading
ing man; Daniel Jarrett, the unscrupu
lous villain, was with Daniel Froh
man's "Lost Paradise" company; John
Coleman, the leading comedian, Is fav
orably known in that capacity; Miss
Louise Montrose, the soubrette, was
prominent In last season's production
of the "Black Crook," and others of the
cast have risen to merited distinction in
II II II
"The New Ole Oleson" will be pre
sented at the Academy of Music Fri
day and Saturday evenings. Mr. Heege,
the author, has completely re-written
this popular Swedish comedy and has
strengthened It in various ways. It has
enjoyed a wonderful careerof prosperity
and now that It Is freshened and revised,
it will doubtless continue its successful
career. The company is the strongest
that has ever appeared in the play and
embraces some of the best farce-comedy
talent in the business. Many clever
specialties are Introduced. Some new
and startling surprises in a farce-comedy
line are announced and the engage
ment is looked forward to with pleas

IIALLSTEAI) MINE FLOOD.
Tho Water Is Being Successfully Pumped
Out of the Workings.
Great success Is attending the efforts to
pump the water out of the Hallstead
mine, which was Hooded on Sept. 21,
Owing to the unceasing operations of
last week No. 2 crew is now practically
free from water, and efforts are being

The Worthlngton pump, the largest
working, will be removed to this vein
and as only a few feet of rock divides
the two veins, an opening will be made
to lower the pump into the lower vein.
There is still a considerable flow of

A crowded house greeted "The Power

goers of this city.
The company that produced "The

out the strong points In that moral

greeted with thunders of applause.
There is no doubt of the popularity

uti Llanelly, Wales, Oct. 2.
Wight before last we favored the peo
ple of Pon-y-Pridd with another con
cert. The audience was a good one, and
the town hall, In which we sang, is In
deed, a splendid place. It is a very
well finished concert room ,the acous
tic properties being very tine. We went
through the programme all right, al
though some of the company were very
badly affljcted with colds, and after the
concert were the recipients of a great
many compliments from a number of
friends. We still have almost three
weeks of it before us, and, reully, we
all feel very experienced on the subject
of programmes and concerts already.
It is quite a little education in the art
of making up attractive and at the
same time classical menus to put before
the people of different towns, for every
one knows what will delight one com
munity may not please another at all.
So we go on in the even tenor of our
way from night to night and I fancy
that we are all learning a great many
good and profitable things from this
pleasant and well planned trip.
lias Relatives in Scranton.
We are at Llanelly now, where we
gave a concert last night. The town
market hall, where we sang. Is an im
mense place, and was filled with chairs
for the occasion. We had a very large
and intelligent audience, who certainly
enjoyed our programme very much, as
they encored nearly every number. It
was very enjoyable to us, too, to see the
audience before us, as a great many
people were in evening dress, which
gave quite a pretty aspect to the house,
from our point of view. The stage was
all trimmed up with flags and colors
and palms, and presented a beautiful
appearance. Some of us are being very
cordially entertained by Mrs. John Mor
ris, of this place, who has a daughter
living in Scranton, and who was one of
the best sopranos in Mr. Evans' World's
Fair choir. You may be sure this lady
was glad to see us, and to hear from her
absent daughter in America all that we
could tell her. We meet many people
over here In South Wales who have been
over to Scranton or Wllkes-Barre,
either to live or on a visit. These two
cities are almost as well known here as
in Cardiff or Swansea. Everybody has
some relative or other over there, Or
else expects to go over some time.
On Mrs. Morris' mantel there stands
a photograph of the Scranton court
house, which, of course, we recognized
Instantly, and were very glad to see the
picture of so familiar a landmark. This
morning, as I am writing here, and hist
evening before the concert, there were
several people who have near relatives
and friends In Scranton, and who have,
in fact, some of them, been Scranton
lans themselves. In to call on us.
It Is getting quite cold over here now,
and we have, all of us, more or less
caught colds. It Is not cold, like our
country' cold weather, but damp and
raw, and not dry and snappy, and I
suppose that Is the reason why the peo
ple have to eat so much fat meat, and

Last night at our concert we came

fine country to come to and visit, or for

PLANS FOR INSTITUTE.
City and County Superintendents Havo
Begun Preparations for the Sessions.
That there may be no confusion in the
separation of county and city teachers
during the institute beginning Oct. 29,
extensive and detailed preparation Is
now being made by County nnd City Su

two superintendents began their ar
rangements yesterday morning.
It has been found that In one particu

Heretofore a large number of city

Mine. Blauvelt was received by a
storm of applause upon her appearance
on the stage, which gave evidence of the
esteem in which the talented artist is
held by Scranton music lovers. Her
rendition of "Nymphs and Fauns" was
given In an artistic manner. To the
enthusiastic encore that followed Mme.
Blauvelt responded by singing "Kath

the programme Mme. Blauvelt gave
"Comln' Thro' the Rye" as an encore,

Mr. Carter's interpretation of Liszt's
"Rhapsodie Hongroise," was a finished
performance from beginning to end, and
gave evidence of his ability as a pianist
from a technical view as well as his
thorough comprehension of the spirit
of the composer. In the above as well as
in the rendition of the "Polonaise" by
Chopin, Mr. Carter held the audience
by his artistic handling of the subject
before him, and the stillness that per
vaded the house during his playing was
more powerful evidence of the appre
ciation of tho audience than the loud
applause at the finish.
Miss Draeger, contralto, delighted the
audience by her finished rendition of
German songs, and responded to a
hearty encore by singing "Genevieve."
Mr. Wooler sang English ballads In cap
tivating style, and his sweet tenor voice
was heard to excellent advantage in
"Yesterday," "Bonnie Sweet Bessie,"
and "Alice, Where Art Thou?"
The concert was a success, both finan
cially and in a musical way, and re

gentlemen who assisted in its success
upon the stage.

This Woman's Bold Scheme for Blackmail
Failed to Work.
From Kate Field's Washington.
A good Btory is told of a prominent
federal official, who was in office during
the first Cleveland administration and
his reception of a woman who endeav

woman came into his office one day and
after tearfully reciting her tale of woe
and wrong to him and an amused on
lookerwho had tried, Ineffectually, to
leave the room and let the couple at
tend to their own affairs she de
manded Immediately a check for $100.
"But I cannot give you that amount.
I haven't got it," said the official.
"Well, then, I'll tell all about our
dealings and you won't show up very
well," said the woman threateningly.
"Oh, I don't think you can make any
body believe such a tale as you would
tell against me," came the lmperturbed
"Oh, T can't, can't I?" sneered the wo
man. "Well, I just need . that $100 and
you've got to give It to me or I'll let out
the whole business. Now are you ready
to pony up?"
The official pondered a moment.
"The case would look pretty black
against me, wouldn't It?" he said re
flectively. "Yes, I'll see to that," was the wo
man's still more threatening answer.
"Well," said the official, after a few
moments' thought, and with a sus
picious twinkle in his eye, "I guess I
see a way out of the difficulty. You
know my wife holds the purse strings
of the family. Now you Just go and tell
her the whole Btory, and cry about it,
and she might give you the amount you
