The Market of the First Presbyterian
church opened yesteruuy. and during
the afternoon and evening a constant
stream of people passed In and out of
the armory on Adams avenue, where
The Market Is being held, and when
the doors were closed late last night,
sufficient assurance had been given
that the affair will show a result far
In excess of the expectations of Its most
enthusiastic managers.
While, generally speaking, The Mar
ket materially and In Its purpose and
furnishings Is much the same as the
usual church fair, It Is radically differ
ent In Its magnitude, Its beauty of
ornamenture, business-like manage
ment and voluminous detail of articles
for sale. Without disparaging the ex
ecutive women of this or other
churches, it may be said that The Mar
ket Is the most stupendous function of Its
kind ever attempted in the city; In Its
great splendor and perfection of detail
Is offered an explanation of the arduous
planning and hard work of the women
of the church for several months.
.Most Pleasing Aspect.
At night the Interior under the ex
hilarating sparkle of numerous electric
lights Is seen at Its best; the artistic
arrangement of the booths in varied
style of design and effect, the blight
lights and the many-hued gowns of the
women all blend Into a kaleldo?coplc
picture. Few, If any, yesterday passed
through the entrance without stopping
to take a sweeping survey of the scene
and then pausing longer to enjoy the
Five booths are situated along the
sides of the large drill hall and in the
center Is the always necessary and
omnipresent fancy booth. At one are
sold flowers, at another .art goods,
household articles, candy, dolls, paper
novelties and fancy articles. Each Is
decorated differently In color, kind and
design, and In their ornamentation
each Is original and gives to the observ
ant womon or man some new idea ap
plicable to the home or store; It may
be only the gathering of a curtain, the
loop of a fabric or a blending of colors,
but each particular booth shows the re
sult of good taste and the impossibility
of a criticism.
The general effect of the flower booth
shows it to be In keeping with the pur
pose for which it was erected. Rhodo
dendron and laurel branches cover all
the woodwork, arches and back ground.
Instead of by electricity it is lighted by
the mellow rays of a number of deeply
shaded Btandard lamps and presentB a
pleasing sylvan effect. The trimming
was done by Miss Richmond, who is in
charge of the booth, and by her young
girl assistants. In addition to potted
and cut flowers and basket-work Jar
denalres, hot chocolate and lemonade
are also sold.
Artistic Art llooth.
Oriental articles, tapestries, scarfs,
rugs and pillows, and the true Oriental
Idea was used In arranging the art
booth. The draperies are from a Hart
ford importing house, were procured at
wholesale prices and will be Bold far
below the ordinary retail figure at n
price only sufficient to prevent loss.

ties. Some water colors by Reeves, a
former Scrantonlan, are remarkably
cheap at $25, and a number of Bokhnras
and Oriental pillows are offered at
prloes 60 per cent, lower than Vantlne"s.
Your real practical, motherly or do-
mestlc person will find plenty to Induce
a purchase at the household booth
Aprons, comfortables, quilts, laundry
bags and the like give an idea of what
the booth contains, and an Immense
cupboard displaying a toothsome array
of home canned fruits offers a forcible
suggestion of a Christmas dinner and
the good things "mother used to 'put
up.' " The names of Mrs. Hrundagi
Mrs. Wilson and Mrs. Harry Coursen,
of this booth, were omitted from the
list published Tuesday.
The approaching holidays have given
an Impetus to the business of the doll
booth, which contains 300 sawdust
stuffed and other kind of stuffed beau
ties with china, wax and even cloth
faces at prices from a few cents to
many dollars. A doll house for which
Swartz charges $150 Is offered for $.10,
Minature beds, caps, grandma and
brownie dolls, und a complete line of
silk underwear give but a faint Idea of
what may be purchased. A complete
tailor-made suit by Welngarten, of
New York, attracts considerable atten
tion. The roof of the booth strikingly
represents a big snow house, Icicles and
till, and Is said by many visitors to be
the most original Idea of The Market
Complete Doll House.
The doll booth controls the sale for
$150 of the doll house donated by Mrs.
Willis Kemmerer and situated at the
right of the entrance. The little dwell
Ing has six rooms, bay-windows and
piazza, and Is completely furnished. In
the "grounds" are flower beds, a tennis
court, fountain and all the appurten
ances of a happily managed domicile.
If the Scranton young man lacks
pocket money or If the Scranton young
woman oannot plead successfully, these
two facts were not in evidence about
the candy booth. In addition to an at
tractive display of home-made sweets,
candied fruits, chocolates and Chris
maa candies, the stock contains some
dainty hand-painted paper dinner fay.

Project on Foot to l ocate One In This
City-Will He Conducted on u I.urgc
Another large and Important industry
will In all probability be located in
Scranton at an -early dvite. For the
past two weeks leading members of the
board of trade have been discussing the
advantages of the city with a represen
tative of a tin plate industry, who, af
ter personal Investigations extending
over that period, Is thoroughly satisfied
that the manufacture of tin plate can
be carried on cheaper in this city than
In any other section of the country, not
excepting the natural gas fields.
Unusual Importance is attached to
this new development by members of
the board of trade Inasmuch as the
new works, If established, would Insure
a pay roll of $20,000 per month and be
the means of employing a considerable
number of men.
The representative In the city Is an
expert In the business and thoroughly
competent to Judge the local facilities
and after a detailed Inquiry Is satisfied
that Scranton, with her natural ad
vantages, cheap fuel and transportation
facilities, Is pre-eminently the locality
for this important Industry. The board
of trade has offered a site and an oppor
tunity will be given Monday evening to
discuss the matter. A meeting will be
held In the board rooms on Lackawanna
avenue, and a full report be presented
by the manufacturing committee. An
effort will bd made to raise the sum of
$200,000, the capital' required to. organize
the company.
The tariff on Imported tin Is $1.20 per
box of 112 pounds, which affords ample
protection to the ihome Industry. At
present, tin plate works are located at
Columbus, O.; Pittsburg, and Akron, O.,
but nowhere are they on such a laVge
scale as they could within a ahort time
be worked in Scranton. Many capital
ists have announced their Intention of
subscribing toward the money required
Communication with firms In South
Wales have been opened with regard to

Since I publshed the photo-engraving of

Cniincilmen Differ About the Inter
pretation of a Joint Resolution.
He cause of This Divergence the Meeting
Called for Tuesday Evening to Con
sider Bids for the l.tndcn Street
Bridge Hud to Be Postponed.
A sufficient number of members of
the Joint streets and bridges committee
of councils mot Tuesduy night for the
purpose of considering the bids for
building the lion work of the Linden
Street bridge, Involving over $70,000.
Nevertheless the assertion was made
that no quorum was present. Hetween
the lines of this assertion It has been
learned that the committee Is divided
upon un Important question, In which
the common branch members take one
position and the select members take
view radically opposite. Until the
matter Is settled, It Involves a delay In
awarding the bridge superstructure
A resolution of select council con
firmed by the common branch provides
that the joint streets and bridges com
mittee shall consider the bids and when
report has been decided upon the
committee shall Inform the mayor, who
shall call a Joint session of councils to
award the contract. Commoners
Reagen and Battle, before the meeting
of Tuesday night was formally called
to order, argued that the Linden Street
bridge bids could be considered only
In conjunction, with those for the
Roaring Brook structure. Mr. Manley,
of the select members, coincided with
the opinion of the commoners, and be
fore the meeting had been formally de
clared In session left the room with
Members Reagen and Battle to confer
with Councilman Howe, who was In the
They Left the Building.
A moment later the members In the
corridor requested that the resolution
providing for the awarding of the con
tracts be given to them. The clerk ex
plained that to take the measure from
the tiles would be an Infraction of the
city ordinances, whereupon the com
mon council members left the building.
The Edge Moor Bridge company of
Wilmington Is the lowest bidder on the
Linden street bridge. The arguments
of the commoners left the ImpreEslon
that If the bid of any other company
on the Roaring Brook bridge, which
company had also bid on the Linden
Street bridge, shows that the two
bridges can be built by such company
cheaper than by any other concern,
then the two contracts should be
awarded to the one company. The or
dinances provide separately for appro
priations of $125,000 for each bridge,
and the advertisements for proposals
invite separate bids to be presented on
different dates; the selectmen contend
that these provisions refute the posi
tion of the common branch members.
Aside from the differences mentioned
the committee will probably agree upon
the use of asphalt Instead of plank as a
flooring for roadways and sidewalks.
The cost will be from $10,000 to $18,000
greater, but It Is expected that even af
ter paying Inspectors' salaries and other
Incidental expenses, $14,000 will be left
over from the original appropriation
and can bp applied upon the Roaring
Brook bridge. It Is anticipated that
upon the last mentioned structure the
bids will possibly slightly exceed the
city engineer's estimate. The bids for
building the superstructure of the
Roaring Brook bridge will be read to
night In either select or common coun
Progress of Work.
Work upon the superstructure or
masonry, of the Linden ntreet bridge Is
progressing slowly. The contractors
have been disappointed in procuring
necessary hiacihlnery for the heavy
work entailed, but the lacking articles
will be available In a few days und then
the excavating and masonry work will
be pushed rapidly along. The base of
the weatern pier will rest twenty-five
feet "below the surface and the digging
was nearly completed last evening.
