Rosa F. Wicks, described as the "Boy
lecturer," delivered a lecture on "How
to Qe.t 11,000.000" nt the Calvary church,
Corner of Gibson street and Monro?
tvenue. The "boy" lecturer Is about
llx feet In height, has a imanly baritone
voice, a manly way of swinging his
manly a.-ms and altogether the title of
"boy" lecturer Is one evidently out of
Bate, as applied to Mr. Wicks, unless It
la in a spirit of sarcasm applied to the
boyish nature of some of 'his remarks.
Mr. Wicks Is a minister and coupled
alth his lecture he Is denouncing the
railroad companies for "playing
mighty mean trick" on the ministers
by compelling them to pay full fare.
He also made a ferocious ottnek on
'"dudes" and "dudeens." and advised
ils hearers to look for $1,000,000 In their
! Key West and Imported Cigars.

various districts of the borough met ut
liolaiul's hull on Drinker street at S

Dunmore Democrats have an urban
uinl systematic method of nominating
their ottleers. They copy somewhat
after the style of county conventions;
each district elects delegates, the num
ber being regulated according to the
vote cast at the preceding election, anil
a majority of these delegates have the
power of placing a ticket in the Held.
L'p In front near the platform a re
served space was set apart for the dele
gates. The common rabble was kept
buck by a line of chairs stretched
across the hall; but inside the charmed
circle some had entered who were not
delegates, ami of these "Jack" (ierrlty,
of the Second district of the Second
ward, was the only one who made him
self heard, lie undertook to give the
delegates some advice. He roared aloud
several times unit had to be threatened
with arrest before he quieted.
A. K. Haggerty called the convention
to order and the delegates went for
ward and passed their credentials to
the clerks. There was not a single con
test for a seat and the delegates were
admitted to a vote without any further

Answer to Vurlous Oiicstions.
Professor Sumri . and his wife. Kit
tle Baldwin, known as the "White Ma
hatmus," gave the stvond of their
mystifying performances at the Froth-
inghdin last evening. What manner of
pi',ver or trick was used no one was
ible to say, but a thoroughly puzzled
and astonished audience left the thea
ter at the close of the exhibition.
The audience, which crowded th
house to the doors, sat and endured
the variety performance with which
the evening's entertainment opened,
but tihey were waiting anxiously for the
appearance of Mrs. Baldwin. The
cabinet work of the Baldwins in the
early part of the evening created much
umusement and whetted the appetite
of the audience for the later events.
At; 9.0 Mrs. Baldwin was brought
on the stage iu a hypnotized state by
Wheat Will (io Lower.
After a short Interval she called out
the name of Joseph Levy and told him
In answer to his question as to the fu
ttire of the wheat market that it will
go lower until some time In March and
then there will be a sharp rise.
Frederick Stanley Warren was In
formed that he will become very rich
within a few years and take a trip
around, the world, and that In l!Jfi
while leaving a steamer in a small boat
at Port Said, Egypt, he will be drowned
Professor Baldwin in very impressive
tones advised Mr. Warren to avoid
Pool Said as he would a plague In 1H0G.
Mrs. Hose Cochran was informed that
it would he better for her husband to
stay In this country .than to go Pi
Europe to accept the position he has
In view. Henry Leroy learned that his
sister Is In San Francisco, and that
Corbett will defeat Fitzslmmons. Miss
Ella Palmer received the comforting
assurance that the young man phe Is
In love with Is very fond of her.
In answer to a question by Edwin
Fuller Farrey Mrs. Baldwin stuted that
within six years New York and Brook
lyn will have one government, and
James Christopher Moffatt was told
that his brother will be appointed
deputy factory Inspector.
I ulirraan's I iither-ln-I.aw.
Samuel Fuhrman, of Lackawanna
avenue, wanted to know where his
father-in-law, W. C. Gearhart, Is, whe
left this city some time ago and has
not since been heard from. Before Mr.
Fuhrman's name was mentioned Mrs.
Baldwin said she saw a man in the City
of Mexico, he seemed somewhat de
mented and was passing his hand over
his forehead. A man came behind him
and stabbed and killed him, afterward
robbing him. She then gave Gearhart's
and Fuhrman's names and said that
Gearhart went from this city to Phila
delphia, thence to Vera Cruz, and Inter
to the City of Mexico. Mr. Fuhrman
said that he lost trace of,his father-In
law after he went to Philadelphia.
Oliver Beemer elelclted the informn
Hon that Murderer Bezck will hang and
John P. Quitman was told that Jim
Bailey was fairly defeated for sheriff
by Frank demons, but that Bailey will

president, but will be defeated by Tom
Heed, of Maine. John Nllalid was told
that the next mayor of Scranton will be

M. J. Stone, cashier of the Olyphant
TrUBt company, who was arrested on
Monday night upon a charge of forgery
and fraud, was yesterday released
from the county Jail, Luther Kel

his bondsmen In the Joint sum of $!i,000.
These two gentlemen appeared ' before
Judge Edwards yesterday afternoon
and qualified In the sum mentioned. At

night's Incarceration In the county Jull
At the suggestion of State Superin
tendent of Banking Kraiimbaar all the
funds and books were romoved from
Olyphant to a place of sufe-keeplng In
Scranton. Yesterday morning the di
rectors of the Lackawanna Trust and
Niflfe Deposit company Intimated to Mr.
Kraiimbaar that they could not accept
the appointment of assignee. Mr
Kraumbaar accordingly notified the di
rectors of the Olyphant bank of this
decision, and a meeting was held in the

What Mr. Stone Suy.s.
Mr. Stone discussed the matter freely
yesterduy. but strongly denied thut uny
embezzlement had been committed and
was confident that If the securllles were
handled In the proper manner that no
money would be lost and that the de
positors would be paid ill full.
He does not deny that he hud watered
the stock, but not With the Intention
of defrauding unyone, his motive being
to make an Increased capital on paper
Mr. Stone had overdrawn his Individual
account last week to the extent of $800,
but this he claims is more than bal
a need bv the amount due to him in
salary. This, It is claimed, is the only
Irregularity committed by him in
volving any actual use of the funds of
Mr. Stone has not received uny divi
dends on the $20,000 fictitious stock
which was represented by the forged
discounted nutes, as the stock Is dated
Dec. 14 so that no dividends would have
accrued since then.
If the results of the Investigations
confirm the statements of Mr. Stone
that he has not misused any of the
funds of the bank, and that his offense
was limited to the signing of the notes,
there Is good reason to believe that, as
he was mainly Inspired to do this for
the welfare of the bank, the charge
against him for forgery and defrauding
would be withdrawn. The Information
was sworn by George M. Hull, president
of the bunk, who, while strongly disap
proving and condemning Mr. Stone's
action, Is as strongly opposed to prose
cutlng him if It Is subsequently ascer
tained that Air. Stone was actuated by
motives for the welfare of the Institu
tion and that he has not squandered
any of the money.

In giving the biography of prominent
members of the American Association
of Inventors and Manufacturers, the
one of Henry Alartyn Boles, of Scran
ton, Pennsylvania, is one that certainly
gives an incentive to the struggling
genius of progress to all Americans.
Mr. Boles bus not only n wide reputa
tion in his Htale but a national one us
well, lie was born In the town of Lee,
Massachusetts, In 1SH7, of French Hu-
genot parentage. He received a thor
ough, liberal and classical education at
Yale, where he graduated Jn the class
of 1K5H. In 1S61 ho became a member of
the firm of Sliver & Boles and for four
years was engaged In the "freighting
business at Tlvoli on the Hudson river.
In 1X65 he removed to Scranton, Pa.,
his present home, and became the resi
dent member of the firm of Laflln, Boles
& Turck, powder manufacturers, and
also Identified himself with all the pro
gressive movements In his adopted city
for the promotion of Its best Interests.
In I.SUD Col. Boles was elected president
of the Moosilc Powder Co., which posi
tion he still occupies. The frequent
disasters from the careless making of
cartridges by lump light caused him In
1S7I1 to exercise his inventive genius by
the Invention and patenting of a cart
ridge-package for mining powder,
which has been universally adopted in
this country and has largely reduced the
casualties In coal mining. During the
upht avals and excitement throughout
the coal and Iron regions of Pennsyl
vania In 1ST" It became necessary to
check the lawlessness and control the
lawless spirits who threatened the state
and city government. The well known
City Guard of Scranton was formed and
from his past experience as a man of
brave spirit und great executive ability,
Mr. Boles was earnen-tly requested to
take command of the company, which
position he held until they were mus
tered Into the National Guard us a Bat
talion. In 1878 it was consolidated with
Independent companies surrounding in
to the l:th regiment, und he wns com
missioned as Its Colonel and did active
und efficient service In raising the stand
ard of the National Guard to Its present
high position, in 1882 Colonel Boles
was chosen president of the Dickson
Manufacturing Co.. which position he
tilled until his resignation In 1886. tau
nt the head of lle Dickson Manufactur
ing Co. he Invented an Improved steel
tired car wheel, known us the "Boles
Steel Wheel," which hus been exten
sively approved and adopted by the rail
roads of this country, and large shops
for Its manufacture have been erected
In Scranton. Mr, Boles is dliector In the
Third National Bunk of Scranton, Presi
dent of the Board of Trade, President
of the American Live Stock Kxpress
Co.. also director of many of the leading
m-iiiiifiictin-lnir companies. In 18S4 he
wasdelegate to the National HepubllcanJ
Convention held In Chicago, but has
never sought nor accepted nny par
Col. Boles has always taken an active
part In the uftairs of the Young Men's
Christian Association and from 1870 to
l!s74 was Its president, and In 1888 was
again elected to the same position, and
nt present Is one of the Board of Direc
tors. In 1886 he was uppolnteil by Gov.
Beaver a member of the Board of Pub-Ik-
Charities and elected by the Board
as u member of the Committee on
Lunacy, whose members constitute the
Commission' "f Immigration for the
Slate of Pennsylvania. Mr. Boles is
en active und prominent member and
worker in the Presbyterian church nnd
Is always found ut the hend of uny
movement that tends towards the ad
vancement of science or his fellow man,
and In the fullest sense Is a man of the
broadest action nnd progress,
Itusiness promptly attended to, and
prices reasonable. Charles Cooper, 719

val Fruit that we are otic-ring at
$2.25 A BOX, OR 30c, A DOZEN
These figures are lower than any
we have been ahle to name at auy
previous time this season on this
class of fruit. They are entirely
free from frost, and while not the
very finest orange grown, are still
very nice fruit, and the price only
about half what is being asked
fur no better goods. We have only
about 50 boxes, und will not be
able to procure any more to sell
at any such tales.

"II RIGHT 1 THE ML"
When the advertising atmosphere is s
heavily charged with exaggeration, it
is well to remember who the honest
advertisers are. Windy assertions about
1'iKEAT reductions-'-adverlising goods
at impossible prices, find no lodging
place in the minds of intelligent people.
Dull trade throughout the legitimate
business season may make necessary,
wild statements from some clothiers tj
attract trade, but the schemers will
have to scheme harder and find new
disguises for their lame excuses before
they can stop the people from coming
to this store for honest values. The
triumph of this store is the triumph of
intelligence, and you have made it so.
Trade has been up to the mark here,
yet there's a touch of attractiveness in
the styles and assortments. W e've add
ed another and more taking attraction
