Mimcd-Sheriffs Posso Still on the
Ground and Ready for Emergencies
Practically, the street car strike In
Carbondale Is at an end. The company
Is able with ithe men so fur secured
to run alt but a few of the cars, and In
less than a week ithe officials expect to
have the service up to the old stand
ard. There are only eleven cars operat
ing on the Carbondale Traction com
pany's lines in any event, so that It Is
not so dlfflcult to procure enough of
l ew men to run them. The number of
trie conductors and motormen that
went on strike is but 35.
While there Is much Ill-feeling ram-
runt omong the strikers and their sym
pathlzers, there has not been any fur
ther attempt at trouble made since
Sunday, when thu switches and cross
ings near the Wild West show grounds
were spiked and obstructions thrown
on tha tracks. Thi general Impression
is that the prt senee of the Buffalo Itlll
show was iesioiilble for the work of
Sunday. Large crowds congregated
and some of the hotheads and the mis
chievous bns that were there are
charged with Bp'Uing the switches and
piling the ties on the track. The
strikers had nothing to do with It.

pected ot lieins gu'.ity of a part in the

turned to this city yesterday and left

says they discountenanced It. Here
and there the new employes are re
ceived with taunts and Jeers. The pub
lic Is not patronizing the cars, more,
perhaps, on account of the fear that
resular trips cannot be made.
The strikers held a meeting last night
and are confident that they will win,
while, on the other hand, the company
expects to have Its lines running the
same as usual by ithe end of the week.

AWFUL SILL IN TAYLOR
Citizens Want the Fertilizing Es
tablishment Taken Away.
TOOK THE MATTER TO COURT
BUI of Complaint Says That Travelers
Are Obliged to Hold Tbolr Noses While
Passing Through the Borough.
Want the Business Itemovod.
After many years of waiting the resi
dents of the borough of Taylor have at
lost taken steps to prohibit the pro
prietors of the Hewitt Bono factory
from doing business. A suit of equity
was filed yesterday in the office of
Prothonotary Pryor by Attorneys I. II.
Burns and John M. Harris, applying
for an Injunction to restrain the Hew
itts from stifling the people of Taylor
to death. The still summer breezes
aire heavily freighted with cargoes of
smell that originate from the bone fac
tory of the defendants. It Is sltuuted
In the woods 'between Feltzvllle and
the Round Woods.
Seven or eight years ago the citizens
of Taylor began to do a little to stop
the Hewitts, but the agitation was
hastily dropped. At various times there
has been talk of resuming the attempt
to dislodge the factory but not till yes
terday has anything definite been be
gun. The Injunction Is prayed for by
the officials of the borough and the
officlnls of the board of health of the
borough. The Hewitts will Hie an an
swer and then court will fix a date for
a hearing to show cause why a prelim
inary Injunction should not Issue. There
will be a final hearing and after that
the case will be heard In equity court.
The plaintiffs ate Burgess William
P. Griffiths and David I. Lewis, Dr. J.
W. Houser and M. C. Judge, of the
board of health. Excerpts from their
cumplaluts aire as follows:
. Location of tho Buildings.
"That the defendants, F. II. Hewitt
& Son, are the owners and proprietors
of a certain establishment and manu
factory know and called as a 'Bone and
Horse Bulling Establishment,' the pur
pose of which is the manufacturing of
fertilizing materials for market and
Bale. The said manufactory and busi
ness Is maintained and managed In
three one-Btory buildings, situate on a
private road which leads westerly from
the main road leading from Scranton
to Plttston. The said private road be
gins on the westerly side of the said
main road, near the Baumgardner
farm, owned by the Delaware, Lacka
wanna and Western Railroad company,
and the said buildings of the defendants
are situated about one-quarter mile
westward from the said Baumgardner
farm. That the said 'Bone and Horse
Boiling Establishment,' of the defend
ants Is located In the center of several
populous mining villnges, the same be
ing distant about 300 yards north of
that part of the village of Feltzvllle,
being at that point bounded by Keyser
creek. That the said establishment Is
also distant about 500 yards from the
Sloan village and about 800 yards from
the village of Archhald, the latter two
being villages situated in the township
of Lackawanna, in said county.
"That the materials used in the busi
ness are the carcasses of animals that
have died of disease, or have been
killed; bones, blood, flesh, and entrails
are received by the defendants from
the butchers, farmers and scavengers,
and also the carcasses of mules killed
by accident or otherwise In the coal
mines of the Delaware, Lackawanna
and Western Railroad company, and
other corporations, and coal companies.
These materials are delivered In open
wagons. That after the skins are re
moved from the carcasses, tho materl
alsarecut up and plnced In large square
boxes, lined with tin or zinc, the said
boxes having lids, and are called "di
gesters." The said boxes are not air
tight. When pieces thus cut have been
placed In these large receptacles, which
are about five feet square, the lids are
let down and steam Is blown Into the
said boxes, and the process of boiling
goes on at a high temperature for sev
eral hours. The steam Is permitted to
escape and In this way much of the
noxious and offensive gases are gen
erated. When the materlnls are thor
oughly boiled the steam is turned oft
and the materials are allowed to cool
off. The water that Is condensed by
this process remains at the bottom of
the box, and the fats and oils, owing to
their lesser gravity, rise to the top and
are taken off. The solid material Is re
moved from ithe boxes, dried and
ground, and Is then mixed with differ
ent acids, among them sulphuric acid,
and put in sacks for market.
"That there are four or five men em
ployed In and about the mill and works
of the defendants, and five 2-horse
teams are employed In hauling the car
casses to tho place of business.
Gnscs and Vapors F.xhnlcd.
"That the Bald trade Is a noisome and
noxious trade and unwholesome and
deleterious gases and vapors generated
and exhaled Is so offensive and dis
agreeable to the eonses as to destroy
the enjoyment and the comforts' of
home life of the peoplo. of the borough
"That the citizens of the village of
Feltzvllle, In the said borough, suffer
great annoyance on account of the
offensive gases, and a number of the
citizens of the said village have been
compelled to move for other parts, and
dispose of their property at a great
sacrifice In value, as compared with the
