Cars In Cnrbondalo Are Run nt Intervals and Regular Trnffla Will Soon lie He 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. Patrick Mothan. of Mayfleld, sus pected ot lieins gu'.ity of a part in the nfialr of Sunday, was taken before Alderman linker, of Carbondale, yes terday, on a warrant that had been sworn out for his arrest. He thought that It was a Joke, but found out the seriousness of his position when the al derman bound him over In the sum of Sl.ivw) ball to appear at court. Deputy Sheriff Frank E. Ryan re turned to this city yesterday and left the posse In charge of Deputy Sheriff L. C. Bortree, of Moscow. Mr. Ryan states that from the first he saw no sign among the strikers that would in dicate that they Intended violence. He 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.

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 of Taylor. "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 value before the establishment of the fertilizer factory.

Avenue. , "That during the hot summer months persons whose business calls upon them to pass through Taylor, along the main road, whether by trolley cars or by vehicles, or on foot, have been, so annoyed and discomforted that to es cape as much as possible the annoy ance created they have been compelled to hold their noses '" "That this proceeding was com menced ait the Instance and demand of the citizens of the borough of Taylor and upon the board of health and town council, "That the said 'Bone and Horse Boil ing Establishment' ia not only offens ive, but is Injurious to the health of the borough of Taylor and Is a continu ing public nuisance, and Us main tenance and continuance would work Injury. "Your orators therefore pray that tha defendants be enjoined and restrained from the further maintenance and op eration of the fertilizer establishment. And that such other and further relief may bo granted by your honors, as under the circumstances may seem Just and proper." The attorneys for the plaintiffs will endeavor to have the matter come up In equity court next week. Thirteen Years Experience. Miller's Falls, Mass."
