Team and Permanent Man for the
William Connell Hose Company.
SELECT COUNCIL FAVOKS IT
Ordinance Was Carried Through by Select
Councilman Connell Beech Street
Property Owners Are Satisfied,
Michucljoyce Wants to Kuce
By referring to tlhe report of the meet
ing last night of the Belect branch of
the council, found in another column,
Twentieth ward property owners will
observe a piece of Information that will
interest and please them. It Is the pas
sage of an ordinance on final reading,
two ordinances In fact, one providing
for the purchase of a team of horses for
the William Connell Hose company and
the other for a permanent man for the
same company, his salary to be tlxed at
(50 a month.
Mayor Connell Is empowered by.'the
Ordinance to name who shall be the
man, but It la almost a foregone con
clusion that Foreman Andrew -White
will be the appointee, becauHP there Is
no other member better qualified or
more deserving. The ordinance will go
to the common branch at its next meet
ing and It may take a month before It
becomes law and Its provision carried
out, whereby the company will become
equipped with two very necessary
wants. Select Councilman Alex T. Con
nell deserves credit for these measures
and ought to be thanked accordingly.
The War Is Over.
At last an amicable adjustment of the
difficulty between the Beech street
property owners and the Scranton Trac
tion company is 'a fact. Select Council
man Westpfahl, of the ward, proposed
to the citizens that they agree to let
the company go ahead with the present
grade and that he would Introduce an
ordinance changing the grade on Beech
street from the present plans and speci
fications so as to come In line with the
grade as It Is now being done. This was
satisfactory and there the case termi
nated. Mr. Westpfahl Is now preparing
the ordinance and will rush It through
the council fast enough to suit the most
Looking for a Kacc.
Thomas Murray, of Mlnooka, Is
anxious to arrange a match between
Sprinters Michael Joyce, of Mlnooka,
and Edward Mulligan, of Old Forge,
for a 100-yard dash, and the purse to be
$100 a side. Mr. Murray Is willing to
back Joyce for that amount and wishes
to serve notice on the backers of Mulli
gan, or on Mulligan himself, that he Is
ready any time to put up a forfeit and
draw up articles of agreement, the
place of meeting to be at the St. Den
nis hotel, Lackawanna avenue. A race
between Joyce and Mulligan would
prove one of the most Interesting and
exciting of local sporting events, be
cause the two men are so eve.nly
matched as to make betting one way or
the other very uncertain. Mr. Murray
expects the other folks to answer this
challenge and hopes to agree upon
all the preliminaries in order to have
the race come off at an early date and
before the snow flies.

NOTED ABOUT TOWN.
A meeting of the friends of the Res
cue Mission will be held tonight, when
the question of continuing the mission
after the present month will be con
sidered. The committee, consisting of
J. A. Lansing, Luther Keller, Mrs.
Frances T. Vail, A. B. Williams. Col
onel K. H. Ripple, W. D. Kennedy. Dr.
G. E. Dean, Mrs. J. L Stelle, W. J.
Hand, A. W. Dickson and W. H. Peck,
are faced with a deficit, which must be
met before the responsibilities of the
new year are shouldered. No one will
deny the usefulness of the mission and
the work it has accomplished, and
those who have taken an active inter
est In Its welfare are very anxious lest
the liabilities may not be discharged
and the work absolutely cease. One
useful and practical feature of the mis
sion has been the shelter afforded to
men, who, seeking employment, have
no money tq pay for a night's lodging
and would otherwise be compelled to
paps the night at the station house in
the company of professional tramps.
Fourteen hundred and thirty-nine such
cases have been relieved. There are
many other phases of the work which
commends the mission to the favorable
consideration of Its supporters and it Is
to be hoped that satisfactory arrange
ments may be made to carry on the

Judge Arohbald has returned from
Laporte, Sullivan county, where with
Judges Rice and Searle he on Tuesday
entered upon the work of disposing of
the contest of Judge Slttser against E.
M. Dunham for the office of Judge. A
number of those who signed Judge Sltt
ser's petition for a contest wanted to
withdraw, but as It would leave the
contestant without the necessary fifty
signatures, the Judges refused to allow
them to do so. The preliminaries of tlhe
contest were arranged on Tuesday and
Che commlsion then adjourned until Jan.
3. Tho Dushore Review thus described
Judge Archbald's appearance on the
bench: "Judge Archbald's little bald
spot on his judicial pate, his twinkling
eyes, twitching mouth and round, rosy
face tell of the Hibernian blood that
flows In his veins." It will no doubt be
a surprise to Judge Archbald to know
that 1ils ancestors came from the Green
Isle of saints and sages.
FATHER O'DONNELL SPOKE.
He Delivered an Eloquent Sermon at the
' Cathedral Mission Last Night.
Fhom the text, "What does It profit
a moat to gain the whole world and In
the end lose his Immortal soiil?" Rev.
M. H. O'Donnell, of Providence, de
livered a beautiful sermon at the
Woman's mission In St. Peter's cathe
dral last night. "No eye can picture
nor can any mind conceive," he suld,
"the magnificence, of God's heavenly
abiding place There the spirits of the
blessed dwell In unutterable happiness
for all eternity, supremely aloof from
sorrow, misery, or wretchedness, know
ing aught but the adoration of God In
the unspeakable contentment of their

damned soul, burning In the unbearable
fires of God's wrath, nnd suffering the
enormity of the torments of hell, is
something that confronts every mortal
being on this world Death Is the end
of every man and there Is no escape
from one or the other of two conditions,
either eternal happiness or eternal
damnation. When a soul Is Judged on
the lust great day, that sentence is
final. God Is Just and will reward every
man for the good he has done and pun
ish htm for the sins of which he Is
"Then," said the speaker, "can we af
ford to Insult God in this life, who Is to
Judge us In the life to come?" Father
O'Donnell concluded by extorting ;all
the women to make the mission well.
The sermon this evening will be deliv
ered by Rev. M. H. Dunn, of Great

In the Scranton diocese.

COMEDIAN OTT AT ACADEMY
The Knglnccr Seen at tho I'rotlilngliara
and Myrtle Ferns at Duvls'-Dnly's
Company at the Academy Tonight.
. Other Attractions Coining.
There are few droller comedians on
the stage than Joe Ott, who made his
first appearance in this city as a star at
the Academy of Music lust night. The
Venice he has chosen for his stellar
flight is called the "The Star Gazer,"
and like ull furce comedies Is almost
destitute of plot.
Mr. Ott Is the same In make-up and
style of comedy work that he was when
the chief attraction of "The Dazzler"
company, with which ho first came Into
prominence. He was, If possible, more
grotesque, droll and mirth provoking
lust night than on his previous visits to
this city, and kept his audience in a
merry humor. At the close of the sec
ond act the entire company was called
before the curtain, and Mr. Ott thanked
the audience for the kind reception ten
dered. He was supported by his brothers,
Matt and Phil, two clever young men,
and Joe Hurrlngton, J. B. Watklns,
Richard Carle, Dorothy Grey and May
Jordan. Many bright musical numbers
and entertaining specialties are Intro
duced. The Engineer ut Fruthinghuin.
The realistic comedy drama, "The
Engineer," was produced at the Froth
lngham last night by capable com
pany. The scene of the drama is locat
ed In Missouri, and the story that is un
folded as the action of the drama pro
ceeds Is very Interesting.
In the third act Is a scene In an en
gine room, which Is an exact fac Blmlle
In every way of what It purports to
be. The Missouri Whoopers furnish
amusement In the second net. Among
the clever people with the company
are: Eugene Bertram, Bassett Wll
lard, Craig Roylston, Charles B. Poore,
Fannie Ogden and Mary Davis. "The
Engineer" will be seen at the Frothlng
ham again this evening and tomorrow
afternoon and evening.
Myrtle Ferns at Davis',
Miss June Agnott, as Chick, In the
"Myrtle FernB" at Davis' theater yes
terday, was a great success and was
warmly applauded. The play has an
exciting plot, which Miss Agnott suc
cessfully unravels as the piece proceeds.
The manner In wihlch she -releases the
Innocent Robert Myrtle from prison
awoke great enthusiasm. Joseph D.
Clifton, as Morgan, the hunchback, Is
an actor of great merit and was heart!
ly applauded. "The Myrtle Ferns" will
be continued today and tomorrow, both
afternoon and evening.
Duty's Comedians Tonight.
Augustln Daly's famous company can
be safely classed as a perfect mosaic
of light pomedlans. As such have they
been accepted in America as such
abroad. Mt; will take but a glance nt
the names of a few prominent members
of this body of artists to bear out this
statement. Henry Dlxey, "Adonis;"
Francis Cnrlyle, Charles Leclercq. Miss
Percy Haswell, Mrs.. Thomas Barry,
Miss Martha Ford, each Individual
member a stur In themselves. The com-
pany and management Is under the dl
rectlon of Augustln Daly, and this fact
alone speaks for Itself, that we may
look for a perfect representation of
delightful comedy with all the perfec
tlon of detail that has marked the sue
cess of the company In the past. Friday
evening will unquestionably be a mem
(liable one In the history of the Acad
emy of Music.
Brothers Byrne lu Light Bells.
The famous Brothers Byrne In "Eight
Bells" rjave everything ready for the
season. The production, this season, Is
far superior to anything attempted In
the line of pantomime. The Brothers
Byrne have expended a large amount
In new scenery, tricks, etc. The paper
Is all new, original and catchy. The
theuter patrons can be assured of see
ing a wonderful production when It Is
presented ut the Academy of Music on
Saturday evening. The Byrnes are
simply Immense and so are the fake
horses and octopus; the fearfully and
wonderfully mude ship and a lot of
other things. Sufllce to say that "Eight
Bells" Is the funniest thing of Its kind
and a sure cure for dyspepsia In Its
most virulent form.
Thomas Shea Next Week.
. The well known actor, Thomas Shea
will be seen Monday, Tuesday, Wednes
day, F'-lilay and Saturday evenings and
Saturday afternoon at the Academy of
Music In a repertoire of popular plays,
The success of Mr. Shea, the young
actor, Is a subject of much discussion
among thenter-goers. All agree that
he Is a remarkably clever young nctor,
and with strong magnetic power, and
one who holds his audience with him
ut all times; a thorough student and
artist, and one who thoroughly under
stands the why nnd wherefore of all
things connected with the dramatic art,
