REMAINS TAKEN TO FALL KlYER
Sketch of the Career of Mr. Cohlll lie
Studied for the Priesthood for a Time
and Then Turned His Attention
to .MoJicino. , ' '
The grim reaper selected as one for
his Christmas harvest the spirit of
Manager Thomas Cahlll, of tha Scran
ton Base Ball association. Death took
place at 3.30 yesterday morning at Mr.
Cahill's boarding house on Penn ave
nue after an illness which lasted since
On that day Manager Cahlll was out
at the base ball park practicing with
the foot ball team for the Thanksgiv
ing game. He was suddenly stricken
with vertigo and had to be carried
from the field to the dressing rooom,
where he suffered for nearly an hour
from hemorrhages of the lungs. He
had been affected with a heavy cold
during the base ball season, and his
system was very weak and unable to
stand the severe strain, coincident with
such sudden attacks of lung bleeding,
lint, however, In a few days he-recovered
so as to be able to walk around
hki room and It is believed that he ex
powed himself toor soon. ' '
He had a relapse and pneumonia set
In, complicating the case. Ills condi
tion did not appear serious until last
Thursday, when a .recurrence of the
hemorrhages took place.
Ills Condition Hccumc Alurralng.
Drs. O'Malley and Gunster were con
stantly in attendance, and on Friday
tiiey notified the people where Man-
ugerCahlll wnu boarding that word had
better be sent to his relatives that his
condition was very serious, and the
hopes of his recovery were very slight.
His father, Thomas Cahlll, of Fall
River, Mass., and his sister, Nellie, ar-
ilved at his bedside Saturday night.
Dr. O'Malley had engaged the ser
vices of a professional nurse, Miss Jor
dan, of Boston, and she waited upon
him during his Illness and until his
death. Father O'Reilly, of the cathe
dral, administered the last sacraments
of the Catholic church Sunday at noon
and the patient resigned himself to his
ManagerCahlllhadjust completed his
twenty-sixth year and wasoneof the best
base ball players In the country. His
parents' home Is In Fall River, Mass.,
and they and a brother and two sisters
survive him. At the age of 14 he en
tered Holy Cross college, "Worcester,
Mass., with the Intention of studying
for the prleshood. He spent six years
tt that institution und graduated in
his twentieth year from the classical
dopartment with high honors. During
his course at the college he won praises
as an athlete, and he was exceptionally
clever as a base ball catcher and a foot
He Studied Medicine.
In fact h was noted for his supple
ness and activity in all branches of
athletics. After he finished his clas
sical course at Holy Cross his mind
changed regarding his Intended voca
tion and he concluded to study medi
cine. He spent that winter at home
and the next term he.enlered the medi
cal department of the University of
Pennsylvania, and was within a year of
graduating when he left the college and
branched out as a professional base
ball player. His father states that Man
ager Cahill's Intention was to follow up
athletics only for a brief period and
then return to college and -complete
his medical knowledge.
His first appearance on the ball field
professionally was In 1891, when he
signed with the strong New Haven
club of the International league as
catcher. His alertness attracted the
attention of the managers of the Louis-
vllleclub of the National league, and Mr.
Cahlll was signed for the following sea
son, and he distinguished himself behind
the bat. In 1S93 and the first part of th.3
season of 1894 Mr. Cahlll managed
the Troy, N. Y., club of the Eastern
league, until that aggregation disband
ed, and he came here to manage the
Scranton team when the club of our
city took Troy's place In the Eastern
Very Popular Hero.
Although Mr; Cahill's acquaintance
with the people of Scranton had been
very short, It Is not transgressing the
truth to say that he was one of the
most popular and well liked young men

IN LOCAL THEATERS.
Mile. Rhea's engagement at the Acad
emy of Music this evening as Mercy
Merrick, "The New Magdalene" will
undoubtdly be one of the theatrical
events of the season here. Rhea Is a
star of the first magnitude, und she Is
surrounded by a company of more than
average excellence. Ferd II it'll t and
Isabel Waldron are agreeably remem
bered by many. W. S. Hart has been

Chauncey Olcott will be seen at the
Academy of Music this evening in his
new play, "The Irish Artist.' The play
is In four acts with the scenes laid in
the fishing village of Drlm-na-cor,
County of Wexford, Ireland, In 1815.
The piece differs from others of Its class
In many respects. It Is a simple yet
picturesque story of life In the Emeruld
Isle. Mr. Olcott as Maurice Cronln,
the hero, has a part that exactly fits his
methods. His singing of several new
songs composed by himself Is a strong
and attractive feature of the perform
ance and wins for him frequent en
cores. n il ii
There never was a play presented, the
managers allege, that gave so many
types of metropolitan life as "In the
Tenderloin, or, New York After Mid
night," which will be at the Frothlng
ham Thursday evening. Bankers, gam
blers, bunco-steerers, merchants, con
fidence men, sirens, toughs, politicians,
theatrical managers, Italian chestnut
venders, "stool pigeons," policemen,
"bouncers," " cappers," heavy swells,
clergymen, newspaper reporters, bank
robbers, dive keepers, green goods
swindlers and celebrated man-about-town
are some of them, but not all. The
scenes are realistic to perfection and
represent the most familiar and noto
rious resorts In the famous Tenderloin
district. The performance Is power
fully vivid but entirely devoid of vul
garity. II II II
At Davis' theater on Thursday, Fri
day and Saturday afternoons and even
ings "The Colonel and I" will be pro
duced. The Woonaockot Call says it Is
a raittHng good farce and an evenly
balanced company gave all that was
promised In advaince notices In th?
shape of laughter provoking and clean,
bright specialties. The explosion of
the barn in the second act, as the
tramps are about to capture the girls,
was one of the many standing novelties
of the evening.

"He Is as good as the best and better
than most," Is applicable to Joe Ott, the
comedian who comes back to the Acad
emy Friday. Dec. 28, in his new play,
"The Star Gazer," by Franklin W. Lee.
Mr. Ott's support Includes the following
list of clever capables: Phil and Mott
Ott (his brothers), May Jordon, James
F. McDonald, Joe Harrington, James B.
Vatklns, Dorothy Gray nnd others.
With such a strong company In a bril
liant farce Jingling with bright and
catchy music, new iokes, etc., there is
no reason why Mr. Ott should not pack
Skating at the DrlvlngPark.

Park this afternoon and tonight, weather
permitting. Electric lights have been
provided, also a hot lunch counter. A
large number of skates will be on hand
