N IX LOCAL THEATERS.
At the FrothlnRham tonight J.
McNally's very funny farce, "A Coun
try Sport," with the very popular
comedian, Peter F. Dailey, as the shin
ing star of the company, will De given.
Mr. Dalley's name carries with It the
promise of a good time and the fame
he achieved by his first starring tour,
inaugurated about a year ago, occa
sioned little surprise to the many who
have obseived his rapid rise in me
realm of comedy. His exuberance
never deserts him and In "A Country
Sport" he has found a veiUile for the
display of his effervescence which
would probably suit no other actor, but
which m tne nanus of Lailey at once
becomes a comedy gem. The superb
supporting company Includes Jolly May
Irwin, funny John Sparks, captivating
Andrew Mack and irresistible Ada
Lewis. There are also in the cast such
well knowr names as Harry H. MorBe,
Maud Harris, Marie Miller, J. F. Calla
han and Freda Depew, in addition to
the large collection of dancers and
singers employed In the principal
scenes of the play.
The great spectacular play of "Fan-
tasma," which drew such large audi
ences here before, will again be pro
duced at the Academy of Music next
Monday and Tuesday evenings. Since
last here the play has, however, been
completely changed and remodeled, so
that It is now called the "New Fantas
ma." The old spectacle was the grand
est ever produced here, and It is now
even more gorgeous. Not only is the
ingenuity manifested little short of
marvelous, but the scenery and the
groupings are of the highest order of
stage art; and, from what Is said by
the press of the metropolitan cities, It
Is probable that the "New Fantasma,"
as It stands, Is one of the cleverest and
greatest productions that America has

CASEY'S INVENTIVE GENIUS.
Uydo Park Man Comes to the Front with a
Street Car l ender.
James H. Casey, of 330 Twentieth
street, on the WeBt Side, called at The
Tribune office' yesterday and had with
him a model of a street car fender, of
which he is the patentee. He sent an
other model to Washington a few days
ago and is expecting letters patent on
his invention to arrive within a week.
The fender will be four feet wide
and will project 3 feet, 6 Indies. It
will be fastened to the car three inches
from the rail,' and is guaranteed to
either pick up objects on- the track or
shove them to one side out of danger.
Miv Casey has not Interested any
body as yet with him In the enterprise.
The model was made by George Mack
ereth, a blacksmith living near the Ox
ford shaft, and when the invention is
patented, a full sized fender will be at

MASS IEIINGAI TAYLOR
Splendid. Reception Given to Ex-
Lieutenant Governor Da vies.
FIREWORKS, MUSIC, ORATORY
Weber's Rink Not Able to Make Room for
" More Than Half Who Wanted to
Hear the Speakers Fifteen
Hundred People Present.
The flow of enthusiasm at the Repub
lican mass meeting In Taylor last night
has not been outdone In this campaign.
The borough was brilliant with fire
works and the Btreets echoed and re
echoed with rousing cheers.,
The Republican club headed by the
Taylor band met the speakers on their
arrival at the Jersey Central depot at
7.30 and, escorted them to Weber's
rink, where an audience had assembled
that would have packed 'two rinks.
Those who could not gain admittance
surged shoulder above shoulder in the
street and endeavored to catch the
words of the speakers. Inside the audi
ence was orderly, but when applause
was in order the greeting manifested
itself with a vociferousness that told
of the party patriotism of the citizens
Harry J. Cooper was chairman of the
meeting. On the stage besides Candi
dates Clemons, Pryor, Judge Arch
bald, Huester, Grover, Hopkins, Scran
ton, Thomas, Jones, Vaughan and
Davies were the following prominent
Republicans of Taylor: Dr. K, E. Wes
ton, president of the borough council;
Dr. J. S. Porteus, John W. Reese, J. E.
Watklns and H. J. Harris.
The walls) of the hall were pla
carded with mottoes such as, "Vote the
Republican ticket straight, straight.
Don's skip the smallest county office."
"The Canadian laborer gets 16 a month,
whose mines will work?" The stage
was decorated with the Stars and
Stripes, and In the center the picture
of Congressman Scranton beamed
down between the pictures of General
Hastings and Candidate Walter Lyon.
Colborn Was Eloquent.
Chairman Cooper In a brief speech
bespoke the kind attention of the audi
ence for the first speaker, Attorney
A. J. Colborn. The eloquence of Mr.
Colborn was never heard to better ad
vantage. He attacked the specious
promises of the Democratic party and
In glittering language tore asunder the
free trade fallacies that are taught and
which are being carried out little by
little. He said in part:
This Is truly a Republican year. It
is a year In which the great mistake
that has been committed will be recti
fied, and under the leadership of uen
eral Hastings, the gallant hero of the
Conemaugh. we will go on to victory,
This Is a campaign In which the work
lngman Is thinking; he is thinking of
the smokeless stacks of crippled nidus
tries, he is thinking when he sees his
family begging for bread."
At this point in Mr. Colliorn's address
some one from the outside thrust his
arm through the window. The speaker
said, "That s only some Democrat In
search of light; we will give them all
the light they want." The humor ot
this ready repartee created applause
that did not subside for two minutes.
Resuming the thread of his discourse,
Mr. Colborn pictured In eloquent lan
guage the destitution of the country
and the people under eighteen months
of Democratic misrule.
"The Wilson bill, the author of all the
mischief, is now In force," he said, "the
bill which a Democratic president
branded bs a bill of perfidy and dia.

peace, dui wnere can we llnd peace? -"Labor

tries and gives labor a chance."
Mr. Colborn referred to the statement
of Mr. Merrifleld, the Democratic can

When James G. Blaine in 1S88 came
down from the Pine Tree state and de
livered an address at Boston, he pic
tured a prophecy that the day would
come when tne country would see it
self controlled by the Southern Dem
ocracy, assisted by the northern Demo
crats of New York city, and the breath
of free trade would sweep over the
land. Mr. Blaine died the year that
saw the fulfillment of his prophecy.
We Have Been Fortunate.
Mr. Davies said that from what he
had heard this valley has not felt th
effect of hard times to the extent that
other places have undergone. He told
of a scene that came before his n itlce
last . winter in Philadelphia. One morn
lng he observed a line of men at the
desk of the hotel waiting to hear
there was any employment around the
hotel at which they might be able
earn a dollar to bring home bread
their starving families. This wns in

one of the busiest In the country, hum

and a vote for Joseph A. Scranton
means one step In the right direction
It may mean more than a step because
the next congress will be close and one
vote may control It. In concluding his
very eloquent speech Mr. Davies be-
seeched his hearers to repudiate with
vengeance the cowardly ' onslaughts
that the opposition Is making against
Congressman Scranton was next In
troduced. He addresed his hearers as
fellow protectionists and assured them
that In no campaign through which he
passed was .the prospect of victory so
bright as at present. The great out
pouring of the cltliens of Taylor Is an
Index of victory. He referred to the
magnificent majority registered by
Lackawanna county last February
given to the peerless Republican,
Galusha A. Grow, and said that the is
sues now are the same as then as far
as the policy of protectlopn.
Attorney W. Gaylord Thomas fol
lowed Mr. Scranton in a telling speech,
well diversified with pleasing anecdote.
Candidate John R. Jones was the last
speaker and simply reiterated the
pledge to conduct the office of district
attorney, if elected, with fairness. Jus
