THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE-FRIDAY MORNING. DECEMBER 7, 1894.
Elaborate reparations Are Already
Being Made for That Event. .
MANY CUBS F1XD QUARTERS
Iho Mllitory Escort Will Very l ikely
Comprise at I.cust the Three Troops,
One Battery and a Regiment
from i:uch Brigade.
Special to the Scranton Tribune.
Harrisburg, Dec. 6. The coming in
auguration of General Hastings as gov
ernor of this state promises to be a
very grand affair from every point of
view. Already clubs from all over the
state tiuve announced their intention of
being present, but as yet very few have
secured quarters. The hotels, as a rule,
are refusing to entertain clubs except
to furnish them with meals, and a3 a
consequence halls are In demand for
Bleeping accommodations. Philadelphia
clubs thus far lucky enough to get
In on the ground floor are the follow
ing: Penrose club, at the Columbus
hotel; Fifteenth Ward and Thirteenth
Ward clubs, at the United States hotel;
William K. Leeds club, at the Colum
bus, and the Continenttal club will oc
cupy sleeping cars with a dining car
attached. Clubs from Lancaster. Head
ing, WUllamsport, York. Meohanlcs
burg, Altoona, Pittsburg, Bradford.
Krle, Bellefonte, Lebanon, Scranton,
WUkes-Harre and other cities have slff
nliled their Intention of being present,
und the next four weeks will see some
tall hustling for quartern.
The military may or may not be
railed out In a body. Adjutant Gen
em! Greenland- says he wants to con
sult with General Hastings before any
action Is taken, to see what he would
Jike to have. The State college cadets
will be here for certain as an escort
to General Hastings. If the entire Na
tional Guard is not called out, It Is
pretty certain that a regiment from
each of the brigades, together with the
Governor's troop, City troop, Sheridan
troop and one battery will comprise
the military part of the procession.
There has ibeen considerable opposi
tion, to calling out the entire guard, on
.the ground that the men cannot find
accommodations sufficiently comforta
ble in cold weather.
(iucsts of Governor Pattlson.
The arrangements for the inaugural
ceremony will not be made until the
legislature meets, when a Joint commit
tee of the senate and house will be
appointed, who will see to all arrange
ments. It is quite likely that Senator
George Handy Smith, of Philadelphia,
who has three times served in the ca
pacity, will be chairman of the Joint
committee. If the weather is not too
severe the ceremonies will take place In
front of the capitol, and the procession
reviewed from the magnltlcent new
stairway leading to the capitol, at West
State street. Severe weather will com
pel the holding of the ceremonies in
the hall of the house, but the review
will take place Just the same.
Ob the Saturday preceding the in
auguration General Hatslngs and fam
ily will come to Harrlsburg as the
guests of Governor und Mrs. Pattlson
at the executive mansion, so that they
will be acquainted with their new home
when they come to occupy It for the
following four years. This Is an act
of courtesy that was extended Governor
Pattlson four years ago by Governor
Beaver. Indications point to a tre
mendous crowd of spectators.
The House Plums.
Chiaf Clerk yoofliees, of the house of
representatives, Is here arranging for
the coming session of the legislature.
He claims that Resident Clerk Fetterolf
will be advanced to the chief clerkship,
and Reading Clerk Rex to Fetterolf's
present place. Voorhees Is not an ap
plicant for re-election, as he expects to
get a good political place In Philadel
phia early in the year. As to the place
of Journal clerk in the house Mr. Voor
hees says it will go to E. J. Randolph,
Jr., of Pittsburg, secretary of the State
League of Republican clubs. Mr. Voor
hees thinks there Is no doubt of the ap
pointment of Colonel Thomas G. Sam
ple, of Allegheny City, by Governor
lect Hastings for superintendent of
Another Republican politician of
prominence dn Harrlsburg today Is ex
Marshal Harlan, of Coatesvllle, who Is
canvassing the political situation with
a view of announcing his candidacy for
the nomination for state treasurer In
18U5. He claims the east is entitled to
i the office next year, despite the fact
that the incoming governor has selected
his cabinut from Eastern Pennsylvania.
Cashier Haywood, of the state treas
ury, Is a candidate for Colonel Jack
son's successor. Haywood's friends
claim Senator Quay has indorsed his
Factory Inspector Watchorn has his
friends to work to secure his retention
by Uovernor-elect Hastings, but unless
all signs fall, ho will be removed soon
after the change of administration.
Captain Joihn C. Delaney, of this city,
who is being urged for Watehorn's
pluce, says there Isn't a doubt of his ap
pointment. TO TRIM COURT COSTS.
County Commissioners Will I'avor Mens.
n res Looking Toward Economy.
Special to the Scranton Tribune.
Harrlsburg, Dec. 6. It has been de.
elded, In bt'half of the county commis
sioners of the commonwealth, to ask
the next legislature to pass the follow
ing bills or amendments:
Requiring constables to make returns
to the court only when violations of
law have occurred; the amendment of
the act of May 29, 1891, so as to do away
with December registration of voters,
the assessors simply making the
changes on their September .books Jor
All T -.
.. -Jn look ror
the February elections; to repeal the
act of May S3,', 1893, regulating and es
tablishing, tlhe fees of aldermen, magis
trates, constables, etc.; providing for
the certification to thet state, of mort
gages, etc., 'held by any company pay
ing taxes direct to the state, or of cor
poration not resident in the state; to
repeal section 13 of act Sept. 23, 1891,
providing for the payment of costs In
discharged cases; to amend the act so
as to compej a convicted criminal to
serve at least thirty days In jail for
non-payment of costs before being re
leased as Insolvent debtors; to repeal
the act providing for the enrollment of
persons liable to military duty.
A vigorous effort will be made to se
cure such additional legislation as will
more effectually relieve the congested
criminal courts of the various counties,
and also save money now wasted In un
necessary costs, fees and the like.
THAT NEW TAX BILL.
It Would l ower the llurjen Now Kerning
on Ifeul ICstatc.
Special to the Seranton Tribune.
Harrlsburg, Dec. 6. If the scheme of
tax revision advocated by the tax con
ference shall find favor with the next
legislature, the act embodying It will
reduce the tnx on real estate und at
the same time will not materially In
crease the taxes upon any other class
of property. It Is unlike either the
Taggart measure, which was defeated
by the senate in the session of 1891, or
the Nlles bill, wtiieh fulled In the house
two years ago.
It proposes to tax the value of cor
porations upon the same principles
which real estate is valued and levy
a horizontal mill rate. The bill says
property co-extensive with the state is
to be taxed for state purposes, and
property that Is co-extenslve with the
county will be taxed for county, pur
poses, embracing tax on mercantile
property, fees of county officers und
tax on moneyed capital.
For borough, city and township pur
poses the bill provides for the taxation
of real estate, horses and cattle and
such other property as Is purely locul.
TOR GAME PROTECTION'.
The Legislature to He Asked to Ustnbllsli
u Game Commission.
Special to the Scranton Tribune.
Harrlsburg, Dec. 6. At the next ses
sion of the legislature a bill will be In
troduced under the auspices of the
Pennsylvania Sportsmen's association
to create a game commission, which
shall consist of six members, to be
appointed by the governor, the com
mission to have the power to appoint
ten game wardens at a salary of $r00
each. The commissioners shall receive
only their necessary traveling ex
penses, but the secretary will get $900
a year and have an office at Harris
burg. There will also be presented a bounty
bill and supplement to the game law
making it unlawful to kill squirrels or
woodcock before Oct. 1.
LOAN ASSOCIATION WOES.
The l'ldclity Company Is Now Confronted
by New Difficulties.
By the United Press.
Washington, Dec' 6. The Fidelity
Building, Loan and Trust association,
whose officers and several clerks were
arrested In Pittsburg recently and held
for trial on charges of attempting to
defraud, has new difficulties confront
ing It. '
Attorney L. H. Poole appeared before
Judge Cox In the district supreme court
today and made application for a re
culver for the association, which has
its headquarters in this city. The com
plainants In the case are eighteen resi
dents of Montgomery county, Md. The
court issued an order restraining the
officers of the Fidelity company from
Interfering with the property and set
the case for a hearing on Monday next.
The Jersey Central is laying a double
track between Parsons and Wllkes
Uarre. The Lehigh Valley annual Inspection
tour Is Vow In progress. The ofllcers
will today reach Rochester..
On the. Pennsylvania lines west of
Pittsburg 500 more loaded cars ara
being handled daily than during the
corresponding period in 18113. Every di
vision In the Western system reports
The request that the Lehigh Valley
lndlvlduul operators recall their request
that line prices be made equal to tide
water prices has not been acted upon,
but a meeting for that purpose will be
held In a few days.
The appropriation made for the
month of December by the Lehigh nl
ley railroad for the shops along Its
lines. Is somewhat larger than for M
vember. This Insures full work at the
shops for December,
The Pennsylvania railroad, which for
the past three years has been experi
menting with long rails on portions of
Its main line, has secured very satisfac
tory results from the 60-foot, rail, and
It will eventually supplant the present
standard 30-foot rail.
The Pittsburg Wire works at Brad
dock have resumed on double turn, giv
ing employment to ,100 men. The Home
stead Steel works have also resumed
In full In all departments and will run
double turn until the annual shut down
about Christmas, for repairs.
The blueksmith and carpenter shops,
two large structures connected with the
Sprlngdule colliery, operated by Lentz,
Lilly & Co., were destroyed by lire early
Wednesday morning. The breaker
which is one of the largest In the
region, was saved by the miners. The
loss Is about $2,')00.
C. M. Dobson & Co., who operate the
Heaver Hrook colliery, have put a drill
ing muchlne to work in No. 10 Blope
with u view of ascertaining the depth
of a four foot, vein of coal which has
already been, worked in No. 11 slope.
The vein from the top to the bottom

slate Is said to be rich In quality and
more profitable to the owners than
some seams more than twice Us natural
thickness, on account of its freedom
from slate or rock, i ' ;
The .fuel used at the power plant of
the Wilkes-Barte andWyomlnp; Valley
Traction company costs, It fci-said,' 90
cents per ton, delivered at the furnace
door, . The low price of coal, combined
with the fact that two shifts, of only
two men each,-are- required for-oper-atlng
the main power station, of. the
company, results in thet production of
power at a very low price. The rec
ords of the company show that the cost
of a horse power hour delivered to the
line, including all power-house ex
penses, wus 6 2-3 mills per cttr mile.

New York, Dee. . The action of the
American Sugar Helloing company ut the
meeting, yesterday in declaring the regu
lar dividend on the common stock not
withstanding the gloomy statements of

rons that they will this year hold to their usual custom
of milling STRICTLY OLD WHEAT until the new crop
is fully cured. New wheat is now upon the market, and
owing to the excessively dry weather many millers are
of the opinion that it is already cured, and in proper
condition for milling. Washburn-Crosby Co. will take
no risks, and will allow the new wheat fully three
months to mature before grinding. ;
This careful attention to every detail of milling has
placed ' Washburn-Crosby Co.'s flour far above other
