Flumes Are Responsible for Two Homo

Before It was discovered, at 7.30 last
evening, fire, which had originated in
the top story of the building owned
and occupied by Mrs. Austin Mulherln,
of Greenwood, broke through the Toof
and had gained such headway that,
with the lack of facilities for fighting
the fire, the building was speedily con
sumed. Not more than a remnant of
the furniture was saved.
The home of Mrs. Jane Hennlgan, ad
joining, also caught fire and was burned
down. Both houses were frame two-
story structures and were not Insured,
Mrs. Mulherln's loss amounts to about
$'.100, and Mrs. Hennlgan's to $700. Both
women are widows and their loss falls
heavy upon them.
The belief Is that the fire originated
from a defective stove pipe leading
from a heating stove In which a fire
had been Just started for the first time
this fall.
Francis Moran, of Old Forge, Run Over
and Killed.
A short distance below the Lacka
wanna station on the Bloomsburg road
the dead and mangled body of a young
man was found yesterday morning by
laborers on their way to work. The re
mains were gathered up and carried to
the depot, awaiting the arrival of Cor
oner Kelley, who was telegraphed for.
When the coroner arrived he empan
eled the following Jury: John A. Wood,
E. J. Brodhead, Robert Gray, P. B rod-
head, G. R. Drake and Thomas j. Stew
art. Before the Jury had heard ttie tes
timony of the men wfeo discovered the
boflj', Jamea Moran,' of Barbertown,
came to the scene and said the dead
man was his brother, who had left
home Saturday and had not been seon
since. 'The skull was crushed, both
lees were cut off and the body other
wise mutilated.
The verdict rendered by the Jury was
to the effect that death was due to
being struck by a train while walking
on the railroad tracks.
Four Priccburg Officers Confined in the
County Jail.
A Prlceburg citizen turned the tables
on the law yesterday and caused the
arrest of Chief of Police Max Koehler,
Constable John Sweskle and Joseph and
John Gerskle, deputy constables. Tito
four were brought to this city last night
and locked In the county Jail on a charge
of having forcibly entered the residence
of John Slles.
Each of the quartette was silent
when questioned concerning his of
fence, but signified that all would be
released on ball today. The warrant
for their arrest was Issued by Justice
of the Peace Gllday, of Archbald, and
reads to the effect that the chief of
police, constable nnd two deputies are
guilty of forcible house-entry. It Is
supposed that the men are only guilty
of being over-zealous In the discharge
of some duty.
Chief Koehler Is considered a pains
taking and efficient officer, and was re
cently wounded while arresting a party
of drunken Hungarians.
It Was Opened to tho Public Yesterday in
a Very Auspicious Manner N'otnblo Ad
dition to Scranton Ilotols.
The Hotel Terrace, the palatial new
building at Wyoming avenue and Vino
street, was opened yesterday with a
sumptuous banquet, which augured
well for tho excellence of cuisine and
The building comprises over lOOrooms
and the visitor Is at once Impressed
with the exquisite taste displayed In
the furnishing arrangements. Enter
ing the wide doors on Vine street the
guest Is ushered Into the colonial hall,
which Is filled with alcoves, delightful
ly situated amid ferns and rare flowers,
and in the center of the hall a large
old-fashioned hearth Is erected, which
Immediately makes the guest feel that
he Is at home, an essential point in ho
tel life. From the large hall massive
oak doors open Into the chief drawing
room, which is furnished In the Roman
style and, although artistic, has the ap
pearance of solid comfort, a combina
tion rarely successfully attained. Tho
dining room will seat about 125 per
sons. Beyond this are the private dining
rooms, designed for small social din
ners, etc., and are within easy call of
the chef. The culinary arrangements
comprise all recent Improvements, In
cluding steam tables, steam washing
and cleaning apparatus and all inven
tions which tend to a first class cuisine.
There are five stories, all of which
are furnished In the best style and the
proprietor, W. H. Whyte, Is to be con
gratulated upon the successful result
of his labors. Mr. Whyte, who is well
known In .Scranton, endeavors to sup
ply a want which he considers has long
been felt In this city, as many require
a home of refinement, and where first
class attendance and arrangements
can be guaranteed, and this U,e Is
strenuously endeavoring to fulfill.
Although the hotel was opened but
yesterday, a large number of guests
were registered, which formed a very
auspicious first day for the enterpris
ing management of the latest addition
to Scranton hotels.
Another Effort Will Be Made to Revive
the Institute Friday.
Last night there would have been a
meeting of the Lackawanna County
Historical Institute at the board of
trade rooms If a quorum attended. Dr.
Gates came In when the rest of the
members had decided to go home, and
as his presence constituted a quorum
a meeting was called to fix a date for
another meeting. Upon the suggestion
of A. W. Dickson an adjournment was
taken until Friday afternoon at 4.30.
This was agreed to and no other busi
ness was done.
The meeting Friday afternoon will be
expected to Infuse new vigor Into the
dormant members, and active meas
ures passed tending toward putting the
society on a plane in keeping with the
progress of the Electric City.

Health Officer Allen Says There Is
Xo Cnuse for Alarm.
That Is Reason Why Typhoid Is So Preva
lent at Present Dr. Allen Keeping
a Close Watch on Klmhurst
Water Shed.
Twenty-three cases and five deaths
from contagious or infectious diseases
and twenty four deaths from ull causes
were reported to the board of health
last week. Eighteen of the cases nre
typhoid fever, three are diphtheria and
two are scarlet fever. Monday six cases
of typhoid and two of scarlet fever
were reported.
This Increase In Infectious typhoid is
attributed by the health officers to the
peculiarity of the season, and no sense
of alarm is attached to the large num
ber of new cases.
Health Officer W. E. Allen, M. D.,
said to a Tribune reporter last night:
"While the prevalence of typhoid is
perhaps more general than usual even
at this season of the year, the number
of cases is not greatly In excess of pre
vious similar periods. It would require
a vastly larger number of cases to
ascribe the diseases as 'epidemic'
Typhoid Is existing all over the state,
and, speaking comparatively, Scran
ton with Its 1.00,000 population Is re
markably free of the disease. With our
healthful water Bupply, sewerage sys
tem, sulphur water of tho Lackawanna
river and air currents changing almost
hourly, It Is reasonable to presume that
no general contamination from typhoid
will develop."
As the state deputy health Inspector
and health officer of Scranton Dr. Allen
has been keeping a close watch upon
the general health of Elmhurst and the
watershed of that region from whence
comes Scranton's water supply. He has
been particularly vigilant lately nnd

cation of approaching epidemic.
It Was Received with Enthusiuum at the
Academy of Music,
The author of "Little Tycoon" needs
no Introduction to Scranton music lov
ers. It Is, therefore, needless to state
that a large and enthusiastic audience
assembled at the Academy last evening
to witness the first performance In this
city of Willard Spenser's last opera,
Princess Bonnie.
There is no question that the antici
pations of the most enthusiastic admir
ers of this well known American com
poser were realized In the presentation
of the much-talked-of "Princess Bon
nle." The opera in every way Is su
perlor to the "Little Tycoon," and the
manner In which It was put upon the
stage last evening showed that no ex
pense had been considered In arranging
the details of the magnificent stage set
tings and dazzling costumes.
The plot is something of the Sunday
school library fairy tale order and deals
with the lost child, who was washed
ashore along the coast of Maine or
some other eastern state, and later turns
out to be a Spanish princess. The
story, however, is worked out In a
charming way that covers many Incon
sistencies In construction.
Miss Eleanor Mayo, asiPrlncess Bon
nie, gave an excellent impersonation
and captivated the audience at the
start. Miss Mayo possesses the first
essentials to success In comic opera
Hare beauty and a fine stage presence,
Her voice, though lacking In cultiva
tlon, Is one of great power, which will
no doubt Improve under future training,
There seems no question that a bright
career Is before the young artist.
Miss Lillian Swain Marlon, who has
delighted Scranton audiences hereto
fore, never appeared to better ndvan
tage than as Kittle Clover; and the
Inimitable Frank Daniels, as Shrimps,
was funnier than ever.
The support by the company was ex
cellont throughout, Miss Mabella Baker
and Messrs. Burnham, Greenfclder,
Armstrong, Broderlck and Walker were
worthy of especial mention.
Willard Spenser, composer of "Little
Tycoon" and "The Princess Bonnie," is
among the most pleasant and sociable of
American composers, and ever has an
encoruraglng word for struggling must
clans and authors who aro at the foot of
the ladder which he so successfully scalei
years ago. Spenser haB the advantage
of the average librettist and composer In
that he Is able to write dialogue and mu.uc
and produce an opera without the assist
ance lot any one. tie states mat
comuoslmr a song he usually writes In
words first and the mualc win suggest it
self. The arrangement of a libretto, ho
savs. Is tho hardest work that he en
counters In writing an opera. The music
comes easy and spontaneously, but th
libretto, as he expresses It. "causes his
hair to turn gray and drop from his head.
Mr. Spenser Insists that all music of any
account is written under an inspiration
In speaking of the favorite walti song
in "Princess Bonnie to a 'irioune rep
resentatlve yesterday, he gave an Illus
tration of the way in which a musical
theme would occasionally force itseir

musical people, and when I retired at the
hotel in the evening, I presume the opera
wus on my mind. About 3 o'clock the next
morning I was suddenly awakened and
the air of a waltz song was running in
my mind. I had previously promised my
wife that I would write no more muslo
nights and so' I turned over and covered
my head with pillows and tried to sleep
again. But sleep was Impossible. The
air kept ringing In my ears and notes ap
peared before me In tantalizing profusion.
At lust I . could stand It no longer. I
sprang from the bed and lighted the nas.
had a lead pencil with me, but there was
no paper in sight. I finally took a large
sheet of brown wrapping paper that had
been tied about a pair of shoes that I
had purchased the day before. I ruled
this paper and began to write. In a short
time I had the melody of the waltz song
upon the paper complete. 1 lost no time
upon returning home In placing It In the
opera, without the alteration of a single
note, and It has proved the most popular
air In the work."
In speaking of the various successes
and failures In opera, Mr. Spenser said
hat It was his opinion that the opera
that had the longest life was the one In
hlch the libretto contained a story of
ramatic Interest. No matter how bright
and witty the dialogue, if the plot did not
contain something that appealed to the
interest or sympathies of the auditor
hey would not cure to listen to It the
second time and it is not long that good
music can bolster up a play that Is com
posed of Jokes that have become thread
bare with age. The most successful or
Gilbert and Sullivan's works, "Pinafore,"
and "The Mikado," Mr. Spenser claimed,
wed their success to the dramatic Inter-
st that was attached to the plot of the
libretto. While tho music of others per
haps might have been Just as good, and
the bits of satire more keen, yet they
lacked that something which appeals to
the masses and creates an interest that Is
not satisfied with the witnessing of one
rendition of the opera.
I worked two years upon 'Princess
Bonnie,' " said tho composer. "I had tho
opera In my mind during the first presen
tation of Little Tycoon," but could get r.o
opportunity for work upon the thenm.
Whenever I attempted to lot some one

dwindle, so I was obliged to stick to tho
management until everything was upon a
soundbaslsundl hud accumulated eno-jgh
to ullow me to feel able to devote the
time to a future venture. I feel very
grateful to Scranton people nnd to Scran
ton newspapers," said Mr. Spenser. "It
wuslnthisclty thatniy first successes were
made, and the favorable criticisms of tho
Scranton press have been of untold bene
fit to me during my entire career."
