LUCY DALY AND THE CASINO PICKANINNIES IN "THZ PASSING SHOW."
One day during the long run of "The
Passing Show" at the New York Ca
sino, a portion of the ptckanninles went
on a strike. Miss Lucy Daly started
immediately on a voyage of discovery.
After some hours search, she had un
earthed six new ptckanninles who could
dance. These six, with the six pickan
innies who had refused to strike ap
peared In the evening with Miss Daly
In "The Passing Show." They acquit
ted themselves remarkably well con
sidering the short time they had for
rehearsal. Many in the audience were
not aware of the change, but the strik
ers meanwhile had not been Idle. A
meeting of the strikers was called to
order at 9.30 on the steps of the Mystic
Flats, Just opposite the Casino stage
door. The rlng-learder, a Beml-deml

There are no more popular people in
the dramatic profession than the Gor
mans, John, James and George, who
will appear here tonight at the Acad

their many friends will greet them
with a crowded house. Their new de
parture is said to be a great go. John

the big hits In farce-comedy this season.
"The Ollhoolys Abroad" will! be the at

"The Passing Show," the attraction
at the Frothlngham on Monday even
ing, Dec. 3, is well named, for it Is a
burlesque made up of hits from the
most popular plays, operas and special
ties of the play. The beauty of It all is
that these glimpses are given by actors
fully capable of performing such deli
cate tasks. What eles but a thoroughly
artistic and enjoyable entertainment
can be expected when such people as J.
E. Henshaw, George Schiller, of "Evan
geline" fame; Charlie Ross. Lucy Daly,
Vernona Jarbeau, Gus Plxley, William
Cameron and a score of other leading
people who have made names for them
selves appear on the stage. Altogether
there are fully 110 people connected

pickaninnies, living pictures, and no
end of novelties.

A whispered council of war was held
and then Just as the scab-plck-anlnnles
came out of the stage door,
the strikers descended upon them with
a deafening war-whoop. To say the
wool flew Is putting It mildly. The
battle raged for a good ten minutes.
By that time every male member of
the Casino Btaff was Involved In It,
and the crowds on the Roof Garden
were breaking their necks craning over
the buttresses to see what all the
row was about. None of the non-union
darkeys were severely Injured, al
though several of them did receive an
additional black eye or two. The
strikers were out for blood, but the
policeman seized them before they suc

ST. ANDREW'S YOIXC MEN.
Special Services for the Brotherhood
Held in the Church of the Good Shcp
herd Officers Klccted.
A large number attended the spe
cial service of the Brotherhood of St
Andrew, last night, at the Church of
the Good Shepherd, Green Ridge, where
the rector, Rev. F. S. Ballentine, made
an eloquent address upon the pro
ceedlngs of the convention of the bro
therhood, recently held at Washington
After reading several reports and ex
tracts, the reverend gentleman said:
"Let us go back and compare the
Ideas and work of the brotherhood now,
with the Ideas and work with which It
began. There are some who know and
could tell of that beginning from their
personal part In tt, but as It has come
to me, It Is that the Gospel story of
St. Andrew was so masterfully lm
pressed upon the mind and soul of a
class of Bible students, that it fired
them with an ambition to follow In
his very steps, to do St. Andrew's very
work, In St. Andrew's very way. St.
Andrew had found Christ and had a
brother who had not found Him. He
went after that brother and brought
him to Christ. He did not ask others
to go with him, he went alone. Then
It was the apostle; now It is only the
Individual. He was not seeking many,
but one. He wus not watching for any
one he might meet, but with all power
of an absolutely single purpose, he
passed all others and found Simon
laild hold of him with love's strong
nersonal grasp and brought him to
Let It Held Firmly.
"This, if I mistake not, Is the root
idea of the Brotherhood of St. Andrew.
Let It hold firmly to the last. It Is he.
whom you, dear brethren, men of or
dinary occupation and duties, have set
before you as a pattern of unofficial
privileged, personal, single-hearted and
"If the seeking of souls, one by one,
is an essential part of the life and Idea
of this brotherhood, so the singleness,
the personal individuality of the seeker
seems to have been made Just as lm
portant. Your Idea was not to bring
upon a single soul the combined power
of an organization, not to send the men
after one, but to send one man after
one. You were not to work by meet
ings, by addresses, by printed appeals,
or by the power of numbers, but the
messenger of love was to be carried
with directness of single hearted per
"The one sought was to feel, not that
a society was trying to reach him, but
that there wasone warm, earnest, single
heart, which was In love trying to get
near him and which cared for him. The
brotherhood is only to hold you to
gether, to cheer and encourage the
members. I charge you to be zealously
true to this Ideal. Let the brotherhood
help and strengthen you individually,
you have a mighty mission to win the
young men of the land for Christ and
His church. You are only beginning to
touch It, you are but in the shallow
waters of your first efforts. Launch
out Into the deep and let down your
nets Into the draught."
New Officers Chosen.
At the conclusion of the service the
members adjourned to the parish room,
where the annual meeting was held and
the officers elected for the new year.
The officers chosen were: director,
George E. Parsons, re-elected; vice di
rector, James Atkinson; secretary, Ben

postal card admitting he was in my em

to me, he was taking orders for a di

not destroy this misleading communica
tion of his, and am having a photo-engraving
of It mnde, a copy of which will
be sent to every professional and busi
ness man in this city. J. J. Taylor also
stated that his father compiled every

of Scranton when he well knows his
father did not enter my employ until
1890, and I commenced the publication
of this directory at the request of the
board of trade In 1,887. Any improve

TWO VERDICTS RETURNED
Scranton Gus and Water Com puny
THE SUM ALLOWED MRS. DAVIS
urors Thought She Was Entitled to
$3,O0O-Suit Between Wlnton Coal
Company and Pancoast Coal Com
pany Over Coal Royalties.
After court opened yesterday morn
ing the Jury in the case of the Scranton
Gas and Water company against the
Lackawanna Iron and Coal company
filed Into court and returned a verdict
for the plaintiff in the sum of $27,500.
The amount sued for was $91,941.06.
In the case of Mrs. Jemima Davis
against the People's Street Railway
company a verdict for the plaintiff In
the sum of $3,000 was rendered. In the
ejectment suit of the New York and
Ontario Land company against Mrs.
Laura C. Weidner a verdict was given
in favor of the plaintiff. Attorney S.
a. Price, attorney for Mrs. Weidner, at
once applied for a new trial.
Before Judge McClure the trial of the
case of Mrs. Margaret Hensel against
A. A. Fennyvessy was resumed yester
day morning. It was given to the Jury
at 10 a m but up to the hour of ad
Journlng last evening a verdict had not
been reached. Mrs. Hensel sued to re
cover for damages done to a house she
owns on Madison avenue in this city
wnne it was occupied by Mr. Fenny
vessy as a tenant.
Coal Land Case
An Important case in which the Wln
ton Coal company Is plaintiff and the
Pancoast Coal company defendant, wns
next put on trial before Judire Mc
Clure. Ex-Judge Ganick Harding, of
wiKes-uarre, and Attorneys 8. B. Price
and John B. Collings represent the
plaintiff, and Attorney E. N. Wlllard
and ex-Judge H. A. Knapp and ex-Judge
W. H. Jessup the defendant. The ac
tion Is on the trial list as an assumpsit.
tne plaintiff seeking to recover $12,000
In coal royalties from the defendant.
The suit really Involves the title to a
portion of the John Anderson farm at
Throop consisting of 10S acres of coal
land. The plaintiff claims to own a
one-fourth Interest in this land, but the
defendant disputes the claim and says
the Wlnton Coal company owns but a
one-eighth Interest. The Pancoast com
pany Is mining the coal from under this
land and pays the Wlnton company
royalties on a one-eighth Interest. The
suit is to recover $12,000 In royalties now
claimed to be due and to settle definite
ly the exact portion of the property
owned by the Wlnton company.
Another Similar Suit.
A. H. Wlnton has a similar suit
against the Pancoast company. He,
too, claims a one-fourth Interest In
this property, but receives royalty on
only one-eighth Interest. A great deal
of record testimony was offered yester
day proving the course of the title
to the land from the time the warrant
was Issued by the commonwealth to
John Pierce in 1792, down to the time
the title to the farm became vested
In John Anderson In 1845. W. W. Wln
ton and A. H. Wlnton claim to have
purchased one-half of this land now
In dispute from Anderson's heirs, and
W. W. Wlnton subsequently conveyed
to the Wlnton Coal company his Inter
est In the property.
After the record testimony was heard
yesterday, County Surveyor A. B. Dun
ning, jr., was put on the stand and
testified to surveys made of the prop
erty. He was cross-examined at length.
The attorneys, Just before adjourn
ment, requested Judge McClure not to
hold a session of court today, but to
have the case resumed Monday. He
decided that the trial should go on to
A Bicycle Case.
The caae of D. Taylor Lacey against
Patrick Wlnne was tried before Judge
traiister. Lacey wus the owner of a bl
cycle which he left standing In front
of a house on Washington avenue,
where he was making a call. The bi
cycle was partially on the curb and
partially on the roadway, and, he al
leges, that Wlnne came along with a
team of horses and a wagon and ran
over the bicycle, damaging it to the
extent of $0.
Wlnne says that the bicycle of Its
own valltlon left the curb and ran out

The Great "Andrew" Has in Pittsburg
and Exercised His Healing Power on an
Old Man in the Street.
In the city of Pittsburg while passing
along the streets one stormy day the
great "Andrew" noticed an old man
slowly making his way along the slip-
pery walk scarcely able to keep In an
upright position while leaning heavily
upon a pair of crutches with the assist

now and then gave him u word of en
couragement and a helping hand. The
snow was falling and the wind was
blowing bleek and cold. The features
of the man bespoke the pain and misery
he was suffering at every step, while
the good and faithful wife plainly
showed the care and burden under
which she was resting from the poverty
and helpless condition of her dependent
husband. The doctor stopped and quick
ly stepping up to the old couple he
made a few rapid passes over the old
man's body and limbs, took his crutches
from him and threw them in the gutter,
commanding him to straighten up and
walk on. The old man took a few steps
forward and then stopped and carefully
examined his legs and arms, looked
blankly at his wife and said, Mary
what did that man do to mo? She an
swered, Oh, nothing, papa. He only
made a few foolish passes over you with
his hands and mumbled something to
himself. I guess he Is some poor, crazy
fool. Shall I get your crutches. No,
no; I don't need them see, I can walk
I can walk. Thank God that man has
cured me. Mary, I am well, see how I
can walk. And as the crowd gathered
around the old couple, asking all man
ner of questions of who that man was,
and how It all happened, the doctor
slipped away, pondering over the vaga
ries and miseries of humanity. This
doctor Is the same great "Andrew" who
