WANT A SHERIFF'S POSSE
Carbondale Trolley Lines Are Tied Up
SWITCHES SPIKED AT NIGHT
Men Are Ugly and Determined-General
Manager Altken Calls on tho Shcr.
Iff for Protection Dismissal of
Three Men Caused the Trouble.
Carbondale's street oar system Is
praotlcally tied up a.n-3 the conductors
and motormen are on. strike. During
Saturday night several switches were
pplked on, the line leading to the Wild
West enow grounds, and over which a
heavy trafllc was arntlclpatl today.
The men appeared ugly and as trouble
was feared General Manager Altken
yesterday afternoon telephoned Sheriff
Clemens to eend a posse to Carbondale.
The difference between the employes
nnd the company has arisen from the
discharge of three men, whom the com
pany olHdals Bay were- removed be
causa of Incompetency, but the men as
sert ithat l.t to because a Knights of
Labor assembly has been organized
among them and ithese three are the
Posse Will Go Todiy.
Yesterday the situation remained un
changed as far as the service was con
cerned; the officials and men around
the barn manned the cars and infre
quent trips wore made.
General Manager Altken's appeal to
Sheriff demons has resulted In the
sheriff ordering his force of deputy
sheriffs and bailiffs to go to Carbondale
this morning. They will ride over the
lines and learn the feeling of hostility
among the men or those who sympa
thize with them. The outbreak at) Lee's
crossing, near the Wild West Bhow
grounds, where ties were piled on the
tracks and switches spiked, Is sup
posed to be the work of vagabonds, who
are attracted by the snow.
If the men do not return to work this
morning the management will proceed
to get men to run the cars.
The rumor that the Scranton street
car men might go out on a sympathy
strike has no foundation In fact. They
belong to a different branch of the
Knights of Labor; that Is, the Scranton
men belong, to District Assembly No. 10,
which has cut loose from the Sovereign-Hayes-Martin
regime, and the Carbon
dale men have sworn fealty to present
officers of tho Knights of Labor.
The company has agents out getting
men to All the strikers' places, and it Is
said that one man who worked extra
for the Scranton Traction company has
gone up scabbing.
For some time the employes of the
Lackawanna Valley Rapid Transit
company, which operaites Carbondale
street car lines and those running be
tween Peckvllle and Forest City, have
been agitating' the organization of an
assembly of the Knights of Labor. A
week ago they organized, thirty-six in
number, and assumed the name Gar
field assembly, N'o. 1220, Knights of
Labor. Thomas Gallagher was elect'
ed master workman, Alartin Gallagher
secretary, and William J. Jordan treas
urer. Claims of tho Men.
A meeting of the assembly was held
last Friday evening at Edmunds' hall.
Mayfleld. Saturday morning when the
men went to the power house to take
ou't their cars they learned that notices
had been left with the car dispatcher
settling forth, that the services of the
three men, Thomas and Martin Galla
gher, and. William J. Jordon were no
longer required. The men Immediately
regarded t as a blow at their action
in organizing a labor society and re
fused to go to work until their fellow
workmen would be reinstated. Su
perintendent Duncan, told the men thalt
the reason for discharging the three
was for Incompetency. Such an excuse
was looked upon by them as too ridicu
lous for serious consideration and they
went on strike without delay. The
men claim that those discharged are
three of the most capable employes
under the system and they will not re
turn to work until they ore reinstated.
They nre Impressed thait the manage
ment intends to forestall any effort to
organize a Knierhrts of Labor assembly
and 'that the three that were dis
charged committed no other offense
than to be elected as officers of Assem
bly 1220. Imbued with the spirit of op
posing the company until the manage
ment accords ithem the right to organ
ize as they see fit, the men, have taken
a bold stand and refuse to return to
work until that which, they allege is
their right Is recognized. They have
Issued the following manifesto:
Company Called Enemies of Labor.
To the Friends of Labor:
On May 1 the motormen nnd conduc
tors of the Lackawanna Valley Rapid
Transit company organized a union for
their mutual benefit. Yesterday the
company proved themselves the ene
mies of labor by discharging three men
supposed to be "leaders" of the or
ganlzatlon, for no other reason than
that they sanctioned and assisted in the
formation of a local assembly of the
Knights of Labor. The whole force of
thirty-five motormen and conductors,
excepting two, have resented this un
called for and unfair act on the part of
the company and have quit work.
We therefore appeal to all friends of
labor dn this city and vbelnlity to stand
by us In this struggle between labor
and Its enemies, and ask them to dis
courage the action of the company.
As the result of their refusal to go to
work the street car service was prac
tically crippled Saturday and yesterday
between Peckvllle and Forest City. It
was reported that only five cars were
running Saturday, and these were
manned by the officials and men around
the barn. General Manager Altken
sent out to different stations along the
lines Saturday the following ultimatum
and it was posted in conspicuous places:
To conductors and motormen of 'the
Lackawanna Valley Rapid Transit
In deserting your posts I feel assured
you have been misled by misrepresenta
tions and threats to act against your
better Judgment and the interests of
your families. I give you this oppor
tunity to correct your mistake and here
by! notify you that if you return to your
work before 6 o'clock tomorrow morn
ing you will be reinstated. All those
refusing to report for duty by that time
are discharged permanently and their
places will be filled by men who will
be kept in the permanent employ of
this company during good behavior.
(Signed) Jno. W. Altken,
REMOVED FROM THE FORCE.
Mayor Connell Has Given Patrolman
D. P. Roche His Dismissal.
Early last week Chief of Police Simp
son was directed by Mayor Connell to
withdraw Patrolman David P. Roche
from the police force, the reason given
by the mayor for the removal being
"causes too numerous to mention." It
was rumored last week that Patrolman
Roche had been dismissed, but When
a Tribune reporter asked Chief of Po
lice Simpson about It Friday, he 'said
that the mayor had the matter in
charge and that he (Chief Simpson)
knew nothing about It.
Mayor Connell said yesterday that
Patrolman Roche had been removed
either laBt Monday or Tuesday. No
tice of the removal will be sent to coun
cil at next Thursday night's meeting of
the select branch and then when a new
appointment will be named.
DOG BETRAYED THEM.
Spoiled an Attempted Uiirglory of a North
The barking of a dog probably pre
vented the house of George W Lowry,
on East Market street, being entered
by burglars Saturday night. John
Shermam, a neilghbor, was awakened by
the dog's yelping and saw two men
fitti ruling in Mr. Lowry's doorway.
The men passed Inside and Mr. Sher
man called lustllly for the police. Tho
two visitors ran away and a later In
spection of the premises did not indi
cate that anything had been stolen. A
year ago two men were sentenced for
burglarizing the house which has been
forcibly entered five times.
SAW BUFFALO BILL
Twelve Thousand Persons Applaud the
Ilia Wild West Show.
When Colonel W. F. Cody took his
place Saturday at the head of the grand
review of his massive collection of In
dians, cow-boys, Mexicans, Cossacks,
Gauohos, Arabs, scouts and detach
ments of European and American, sol
diery, and lifted his broad sombero in
token of salute, he looked upon one of
the largest audiences ever collected to
gether at one time In Seranton's his
tory. According to Major Burke, the
seating capacity of the Wild West pa
vilion is in excess of 12,000 persons.
At Saturday afternoon's performance
every available seat was taken and a
number of extra ground chairs were
called into requisition. Altogether, to
rata the audience at 12,000 would seem
to be a conservative estimate. The
night audience was small, because of
the severe rain.
The entertainment afforded by Buf
falo Bill and his 400 associates in the
"congress of rough riders of the
world" Is an unique nnd instructive
one, faithfully depicting frontier life on
tho plains as known by our forefathers
in the forties, fifties and sixties. It
consists, for the most part, of daring
feaita of horsemanship, exhibitions of
remarkable proficiency in the use of
firearms and the lasso; individual tests
of strength and daring and reproduc
tions of the characteristic out-door
sports of Cossacks, Arabs, gauchos and
other tribal races famed for their
physical endurance. Probably the
most Interesting single feature was the
military musical drill, In which a de
tachment of the Seventh United States
cavalry from Fort Kiley; one from the
Fifth Royal Irish lancers; one of
French dragoons and one from the
garde cuirassiers of Kaiser Wllhelm II
united In a show of the characteristic
merits of the various nationalities rep
resented by them. The attack by In
dians on the Deadwood mall coach, and
its repulse by Buffalo Bill and a band
of scouts was a. realistic reproduction,
made even more so by the fact that
the original coach, In charge of the
original scout and driver, John Nelson,
was employed In the performance. In
deed, each of the score of features was
novel, realistic and full of instruction.
In point of variety and magnitude,
the Wild West Show was a pleasant
surprise to those who had not seen It
during the past four years; and the
skill with which the enormous attend
ance was handled without friction or
accident by its management was al
most an equal merit.

Bishop Andrews Sends Him a Very

open letter to Bishop Andrews, the

has received a reply from the bishop,
who states that he has read and re-read
Mr. Hogan's letter, and carefully

There Is, however, one significant
paragraph In the bishop's letter which
states, "I find, for myself, no difficulty
in holding fast to the Methodist church,
which has already done so much Tor
temperance, as well as for other good
causes. If any other minister or mem

Several Who Followed the Wild West
Show Were ltun In.
DR. O'BRIEN'S FIFTY DOLLARS
IIo Was Relieved of It, and Sevoral Other
Residents Are Losers-Sis Fakirs
snd a Pickpocket Are Ar
rested and Fined.
Buffalo Bill's Wild West show
brought to Scranton an innumerable
army of pick-pockets and sneak
thleves, who operated with some suc
cess. Colonel Cody'B aggregation is
followed by a small army of theso
gentlemen, but In the employ of the
show is a well-trained detective force,
at the head of which Is W. H. Hartley,
formerly of the Plnkerton corps, who
with his staff does much to protect the
thousands of spectators from loss.
The pick-pockets do not ply their
trade at the show grounds alone, but
work on street cars and railway trains,
and at depots and street corners, where
large crowds collect, waiting for trans
portation to the grounds.
Dr. J. Emmett O'Brien, of Spruce
street, was touched for $50; S. M.
Rhodes, a prominent ElmhUrst citizen,
lost $40, and C. L. Mercereau, of Mer
ceroau & Connell, Jewelers, lost his
pocket-book with a good sum of money
in it. Dr. II. C. Comegys, of the West
Side, was robbed of his pocket-book,
too, and could not state Just how much
money he had in it. A large number of
smaller losses were reported.
Had to Put Nippers on Hi in.
One pickpocket and six fakirs were
arrested. A fellow who gave his name
at the central police station as William
Murray, of Baltimore, age 37 years, and
occupation a peddler, Is still at the
police station and was remanded for
further hearing. Ho is charged with
attempting, at the Delaware and Hud
son depot, to remove from the pockets of
W. II. Freeman, of the West Side, some
of his looso cash. Lieutenant John
Davis arrested him nnd Patrolman
Sloat took him to the police station.
On the way up he attempted to take a
fall out of the officer but he failed
Ignomlnlously and walked the rest of
the Journey with steel bracelets on his
Mike Blewltt, a well-known man
about town, was arrested near the show
grounds on the charge of faking. When
the police took him in tow he exhibited
a license to sell Jewelry one day for
which he paid a dollar to City Treasurer
R. G. Brooks. John Olegle, who is a
fish huckster, and keeps a small stand
on West Lackawanna avenue, and Mos
cow Ryan, of Shanty Hill, were con
cerned In the game with Blewltt and
were arrested. They hud a tray of
cheap collar buttons, and by purchas
ing one for 25 cents, the poor sucker be
came entitled to a chance on some
valuable (?) Jewelry Blewltt had In
another cai.se. William Mjathewson,
from the farming country, bit three
times and then complained to the police,
lllewitt (icts a Heavy l ino.
At the hearing In police court yester
day morning Blewltt was fined $.10; he
paid $25 and on promising to pay the
other half as soon as he got out, he was
given his freedom. Gleglo was fined
$25, which ihe paid, and when Moscow
Ryan was called he made a long speech
to Alderman Millar and was dis
charged; he swore up and down that he
had not been identified with Blewltt,
tha t he was going, like a peaceable citi
zen, to the show and stopped to watch
the suckers bbtlng. It was so amusing
to him that he remained long in watch
ing, and was thus enjoying himself
whom the police roped him In.
John Walsh, of Nantlcoke, aged 23,
was arrested for being along with Peter
Boran, of the North End, and Daniel
McGroarty, of Wllkes-Barre, who were
running a chance game similar to a
nlckle-in-the-slot machine. Walsh was
let go and Boram was fined $25 with the
privilege of changing it to thirty days
in the county Jail. McGroarty was
fined $50. They are still at police head
quarters. "Paddy" Gllbrlde, of the South Side,
whose name frequently appears on the
police docket, was arrested by Patrol
man Flaherty, who caught him In the
act of stealing artlfllcial flowers from a
store on upper Lackawanna avenue.
Gllbrlde was sent up for thirty days.
Renold McDonald was traveling
through Raymond court early Satur
day morning like a Toarlng lion and
was taken in by Patrolman Melnzer.
He was committed for fifteen days.
Joseph Clapp got drunk Saturday
morning on the West Side and was
quarreling with his family. Patrolman
Saul locked him up and Clapp will be
behind the bars for the coming two
weeks. The man whom Special Officer
Griffiths found In an empty box car
on the West Side, sobered up and got
out of Jits delirium. He proved to be
harmless and was liberated upon his
promise to leave the city without dylay.
MISS YEAKLE'S SUCCESS.
Her Recent Kngngemcnt es Physical In
structor or tho Y. W. C. A.
Miss Juliet Vinton Yeakle, the recent
physical director of the Young Wo
men's Christian association, hus been
heartily congratulated on the great suc
cess of the gymnastic exhibition held in
the Young Men's Christian association
hall. Miss Yeakle Is an eastern gradu
ate,, but came to Scranton from Chi
cago, 111., where she has been engaged,
with much success, in the physical cul
ture field. Previous to her engagement
In this city she was physical director at
the University of WooBter, Wooster,
O,, and also conducted private classes
in New York city.
There Is every indication that the re
cent exhibition work shown by the
Young Women's Christian association
has awakened a fresh Interest In this
popular and beneficial branch among
the fair sex and they have become more
convinced of Its practical value. It is
Interesting to know Miss Yeakle's opin
ions. She says: "Physical culture, as
now taught, means an all 'round de
velopment, and no one part of the body
sacrificed at the expense of the other,
as was the case when men and boys
were permitted to train in any manner
they thought best. The heart and
lungs the vital organs should be the
first In the mind of the director, and
all her work should bear directly
toward the part used secondarily. For
these purposes free exercises after the
Swedish laws are used, as well as those
' "The .one-pound dumb bell and Indian
club, also light wands, rings, hoops,
poles, chest developers, and the like, af
ford sufficient resistance to render the
work directly beneficial and pleasant.
Flying rings, vaulting bars and paral
lel bars, used in a light' form, greatly
Increase a girl's courage, presence of
mind and Independence of action.
Games never fall to draw the mind
from the body, to bring out a timid,
diffident person, quicken Intellectual
and moral power, establish a perfect
responsiveness of the executive depart
ment of the brain and develop alert
ness of mind and directness In reaching
conclusions wisely and skilfully to the
full extent of one's individual powers."
Miss Yeakle leaves, in a few days, to
visit friends In New York and Balti
more. Among her pupils, hopes are ex
pressed that she may return to Scran
ton In the fall. i
RAP AT THE PRESBYTERY.

prove of Ills Probation.
Resolutions have been passed by the
members of the Hickory Street Ger
man Presbyterian church disapproving
of the action of the Lackawanna pres
bytery in admitting Rev. C. L. Wlss
waesser on probation. The resolutions
embody an assertion that Mr. Wlss
waesser left the city owing a large
number of accounts, among them being
ono to Philip Welchel, liquor dealer, for
$8.50. Several charges of misappropria
tion of money are also made.
Relative to the charges made against

reject and annul the charges.

Toronto. He had been in Chatanooga,
Tenn., where he had been pitching and
serving as captain of the club of that
city. He came to Scranton much
against his will, but Manager Barnle
had him bound by contract to report
when wanted. The release of Fox and
Johnson's injured hand made It neces
sary that three pitchers should acconv
pany the team, and so on Thursday
Manager Barnle decided to bring
Quarles here. He has pitched many
times for the Chattanoogas since the
season opened and is in first-class form,
Patchen's Poor Work.
The release of Fox had been decided
upon aB long ago as Wednesday. His
poor showing against the Torontos on
Friday hnd nothing to do with the
matter, for It was thought that tho
erratic work of Patchen behind the bat
disconcerted Fox and contributed larger
ly to the club's defeat.
Pottsvllle and Carbondale each want
Fox. 'Manager Swift, of the latter club
was here Thursday and negotiated with
the Scranton management to secure
him. Fox prefers Pottsvllle, but as
Carbondale has offered him the better
salary It Is probable that he will go
with that team.
Catcher Smith, who caught for the
New Yorks, and did such good work
for the giants on their practice trip
south, seems likely to become a Scran
ton player. But for his broken finger
ho would have been permanently signed
by the New Yorks. At the beginning
of the season Manager Barnle would
have signed Smith, broken finger and
all, but the pay roll was already large.
and it was decided unwise to run the
risk of having him on their hands,
and crippled throughout the season.
Smith and Manager Barnle were in
telegraphic communication Friday and
Saturday, and came within a very few
dollars of an agreement. Yesterday
an ultimatum was wired Smith. It Is
thought that he will accept it, in which
case he will report with Captain Swee
ney In Buffalo Thursday. If Smith ac
cepts, Patchen will be released and will
go to Carbondale, where a catcher's
position is ready for him at any time.
Changes in the Field.
When Captain Sweeney takes his
place at short on Thursday, Radford
will go into right field and Houle will
All the changes considered, the club
will be greatly strengthened and will
make a better showing away from
home than seemed likely a few days
ago. After playing against Toronto
Rochester and Syracuse, conceded to
be the three weakest cluHs In the
league, the club will have been accus
tomed to the travel, the players will get
down to their new positions and the
team will be In better trim to meet
Springfield, Providence and Wllkes
Barre. To a man up a tree it looks as though
the Scrantons will find their greatest
troubles in Buffalo. It is in that city
that the changes on the team will oc
cur. The Buffalos are supposed to be
as heavy hitters as the league contains
and it will not be a surprise If Barnle's
men lose more than one game in that
The Scrantons play three days each

Syracuse in the order named, and in

Wllkes-Barre game In this city will be
on the afternoon of May 30.

Then we ask you is it not very esson

It is an unquestionable fact that at
