It Is hoped that you will Immediately Sign, and return to the committee, the en closed proxy. BUSINESS PARALYZED. Worst Fears of the Punic of Newfound land Are Kcalhtcd. By the United Press. Halifax, N. S.( Dec. 12. Latest infor mation from St. John's Is to the effect that the worst fears of the effects of the panic will be realized. The Commercial bank is a hopeless wreck, and nearly nil its directors, who were among the prin cipal merchants, tare also bankrupt. The panic lias brought about absolute ohaos. Except a very limited number of Can adian ami United States bank notes, the money of Newfoundland consists of the blllsofithe two banks. No one will now acoept 'tlvese bills, 'hence all business is paralyzed. THREE CONVICTS ESCAPE. They Force Their Way Out of the Schuyl kill Prison ut the Noon Hour. ' By tha United Press. Pottsvllle, Pa., Dec. 12. Three con victs escaped from the Schuylkill county prison at the noon hour today while soup was being served to the hundred inmates of that institution. Their r.ames are Frank Mullen, a tramp undergoing sentence of four years and nine months for assault with Intent to kill Yardmaster Sabold, of Palo Alto, In Maroh, 1893; Michael Welsch, of Shenandoah, sentenced by the lust term t court to one year for house break ing, and George lioehmer, convicted last July and sentenced tn fifteen WHEN YOU FEEL LANGUID, dull and heavy, it's your liver that's at fault, A sluggish, torpid liver de ranges your stomach and kidneys and bowels. It poisons your blood. You feel it "all over." The best-known remedy in the World Is Carlsbad. People go there, not only for a disordered liver, but for all the diseases that follow it, and for jaundiee and chronic liver com plaint and every ailment of the kind. There's uo need for you to go. You get precisely the same treatment in the Carlsbad Sprudel Salt, the water solidi fied at the Spring, or in the imported waters. In catarrh of the stomach, dyspepsia, habitual constipation, dia betes, or any gouty or rheumatic affec tion, they have been a specific for hundreds of years. Take only the genuine imported ar tide with the signature of ''Eisner & Mcndelson Co., Sole Agents, New York," and the seal of the city of Carlsbad on every bottle. Beware of the many worthless imitations sold here as "improved" or "artificial" Carlsbad Salt,, which consist only of a mature of common Glauber Salt and Scidlitz Powder, and in no way have the same action as the genuine natural remedy of Carlsbad. Insist upon the genuine. ill? months for robbing railroad cars at Mahanoy Junction. ' . They succeeded In effecting their es cape by sawing the bars In front of the wlndowtf their cell and forcingthe lock of the large door Ik the prison wall leading out upon an unfrequented street. Searchers are' out In pursuit and telegrams .huve been sent In every direction offering a reward for their up prehenslon. AIRS. SPRAGl'E'S STRAITS. Sulraon 1. Chase's Fumous Daughter Being "Sold Out." By the United Press. Washington, D.C., Dec. 11. Mrs. Kate Chase Sprague, the once brilliant and beautiful daughter of Salmon P. Chase, and wife of Governor Sprague, of Ithode Island, Is in financial straits, through the mismanagement of her estate. Her home In the suburbs of Washing ton, "Edgeworth," and other real es tate, was advertised for sale last week, and today the sale of her personal property to satisfy creditors was also announced.

An Aged i.udy. at Archhald, Receives Sc. vcre Injuries. Special to tho Scrunton Tribune. Archibald, Dec. 12. Mrs. Geiblch, an aged lady who lives with her nephow, John Hitter, of South Main tstreet, was struck by an electric car yesterday af ternoon und seriously hurt. She was crossing the track In front of her home as the car was descending the hill. Be ing doaf, the old lady did not War the signal of the motorman, and the car could not be stopped before it was upon her. She was thrown down, and dragged about 100 feet. She was also cut about the head and otherwise budly shaken up. It Is doubtful If Mrs. Geiblch recovers from ithe shock, for h Is more ithan 80 years old. She came here from Peters burg only a few mouths ago. INDUSTRIAL TOPICS. No. 11 colliery, of the Lehigh Con! and Navigation company, which was on lire some time ago, will be ready to resume Jan. 1. Byron Adklns, outside foreman for the West End Coal company at Mocanuquu, hus resigned und William Hrlggs has taken his place. Charlus Emlgh, assistant freight agent at Plttston junction, has resigned his po sition to accept one with the Metropol itan Insurance company. Will the Jersey Central's quarterly divi dend be reduced? That Is an all absorb ing question now. Upon a rumor that It will the stock Is hovering about near SO. A 10-Inch vein of coal has been discov ered by the Lehigh and Wllkes-Harre Coal company In the tunnel which is being driven in the east side of its No. 11 slope. The Lehigh Valley has Just broken the record by getting a cur loud of freight through from Chicago to Wllkes-Harre In fifty-three hours and thirty-five min utes. Contractor Edward Lynott has been awarded the contract for driving the rock tunnel In the Lance colliery, No. II, Le high and Wllkes-Harre Coal company, at Plymouth. The Lehigh Valley officials are talking of abandoning the changing of engines on passenger trulns at .Mauch Chunk. It Is almost certain, Bays the Record, that in a short time the new rule will be announced and engines will take trains from Wllkes- Harre to Kaston without change. The recent'dlspatch to the effect that E. W. ICark had been elected to the presi dency of the Lehigh Coal and Navigation company turns out to huve been Incorrect. Tho election has been postponed until It can be known for a certainty whether Mr. Harris can be a candidate or not. He Is seeking- re-election to the presidency of the Heading ami If he should fall will go back to tho Navigation company. Pittsburg, Dec. 12. Many of the rnll roud coal operators of the Pittsburg dis trict will reduce wages within the next ten days. The Initiative hns already been made by Henry I'lorshein, owner of the Oermanla and Nottingham mines at Elnleyvllle, on the Wheeling division ot the Hultlmore and Ohio railroad. This morning notices were posted at his mln-s that on and ufter next Monday the rate for mining will be r5 cents per ton. The drilling machine which has been in operation in the euxt gangway ul the basin of the No. 10 slope, lieaver llrook, with a view of ascertaining the depth of a smaller vein. wa9 rewarded on Fri day night, the desired seam being tapped at a depth of 41 fi-et. The drill bored through 10'i feet of coul, but whether this Is of the thickness of the vein or not Is not known. Now that the vein is found It Is expected that a tunnel will be driven east from the second lift of tho slope to catch the vein and develop It. An advertisement which appears In a Sunbtiiy paper stating that William Oelger sells river coal ut $1X0 a ton and Mr. (iclger and several others are making a pile of money out of a novel venture, is thus explained by tho Wllkes-Hurro Rec ord: The Mahanoy creek, which empties Into the Susquehanna river, drains the great coal mines of the Mahanoy region anil receives all the coal dirt. Tlia Jig gers who go out In bonis have lonsc licoops und bring up about four tons a cny- to a crew of two men. This coal finds p. ready sale at from St.25 to fci a ton. "Big coal," that Is coal larger thun pea and buck wheat, brings i and tlM. At George town there are nearly 100 men engaged in Jigging.' At Northumberland It Is a pay irttr business, one mun having taken out l,4.ri0 loads last year. The coal deposition In tho river amounts to thousands of tons yearly and the amount Jigged can be es timated at about one-quarter the nmounl lost. It is a recognized Industry now, there being two steam Jiggers In operation and several more In course of construe tion. In the winter the Jiggers cut through the ice and scrape along the bot tOTO. , Art Important' opinion on roal leases was hunde-t down by Judge Woodward, of Lu lerne county, Tuesday. In 1879 the heirs of Hcndrfnk H. Wright leased to the Le high and Wllkes-Harre l onl company about seventy-five acres of coal land In Plymouth, said leuso to continue until all the merchantable coal should be mined, royalty to be 25 cents per ton, with a Held minimum annual royalty of W.000. This was puid until July, lm. when tho company refused to make further pay ments, alleging that the minimum roy alties already paid aggregated more than all the coal covered by the lease. The heirs determined to forfeit the lease. The report of the master was to the ef fect that plaintiffs had mined 79,000 tons and has paid for 140,000 tons, had paid for 8,691 tons more than was mlnable und'ir the tract, that the grant was a sale of ull the .coal . in the ground and the $1,000 In annual payments was the purchase money, and had bcon all paid and there could be no forfeiture, that plaintiffs are entitled to a reasonable time to take out th remaining coal without further pay ments. Therefore, that defendants be re strained from forfeiture of lease or pre vention of mining. Judge Woodward de cree that failure of coal does not dls tharge (lessee from payment of rent. The obligation means what It says. It Is therefore decreed that the finding of the master be overruled, the prayers of the bill refused and the bill be dismissed at the cost of the plaintiffs , STOCKS AND BONDS. ' By the United Press. ' New York, Dec. 12. The missing of the Patterson bill allowing pooling by the railroads led to a more confident feeling In stock circles at the opening this morn ing and a general advance In prices took place. After the spurt nt the open ing the market became quieter, but the advance was well maintained, the result of Washington advices that the senuto will act favorably und quickly on tho Patterson bill when It reaches that boilv. In the afternoon Sugar loomed Into prom inence, and on a more active business the price rose to SWVi, ex-dlvldend of 3 per cent. The rise near the close was due to the announcement that the senate had refused to take up the houso free sugar bill. Distillers was higher, rising to l'H on a rumor that the insiders will with draw their plan for the reorganlzatoin of the property. The market closed very firm, not withstanding reports that at least $l.ouu,000 gold will be forwarded to Havre on Saturduy. If Intending shippers In the meantime can secure full weight gold coin the shipments will be larger. Net changes In stocks !how gains of i to 2 per cent., bugar leading. The total transactions were 2U7.220 shares, of which S9.700 were Sugar und 24,000 Distilling. The range of today's prices for the ac tive stocks of the New York stock mar ket are given below.

CUT PRICES:-- WALLACE 209 h.!"S" Ave. bcranton by the CHEAPEST IRON BEDS IN TO OUR Scranton Bedding Go. Washburn-Crosby Co. wish to assure their many rat rons that thev 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 brands. 1EGAR6EL Wholesale Agents.
