All on Account of a Little West Side
Permitted Two Young Men to Make an
Arrest and Tho Tribune Told the Story,
Chief Simpson Ordered an Investigation-Testimony
A Btlr has been created In police cir
cles over a story which, appeared In
Monday's Tribune in the West Side
column. The matter resulted In an In
vestigation under the direction of Chief
of Police Simpson yesterday and the
takinir of testimony In the matter.
One night Inst week Jonathan Harris
and Evan Jones, two young West Ski
ers, met Mrs. Reuben Brown running
excitedly on South Main avenue. She
nsked If the young men had seen a
policeman. Uhiv bolntr answered In
tho negative phe told them that her
husband was HI and that a suspicious
character was prowling around the
house on Ninth street.
Without more odo .the two young
men armed with a club and a cobble
stone? accompanied Mrs. Brown homo
and found a tramp In the cellar. They
ordered him to hold up his htinklH and
with their prisoner between them start
ed toward the police Rtatlon. On Main
avenue Patrolmnn Matthews stepped
from the doorway of D. 1). Evans' store
and relieved tho younpr men of their
prisoner. And then occurred tho epi
sode which led to yesterday's taking
of testimony. Patrolman Matthews In
terrupted the young men in their story
of the arrest by telling them that ho
had overheard their conversation with
Mrs. Brown and had been waiting to
see what the result would be.
Hi-ought to tho Chief's Attention.
Young Harris and Evans related the
story to a Tribune reporter and the
facts received were published In detail
In Monday's Tribune. Upon reading
the article Patrolman Matthews as
sumed that there had been a mistake
or wanted vindication. At any rate
the matter was brought to the atten
tion of Chief Simpson and all parties
concerned In the affair, excepting the
reporter, were requested to report at
police headquarters yesterday after
noon. The two West Side young men
repeated the story, which Was record
ed by Robert Simpson, clerk of the
chief of police. They were pledged to
secrecy, but it was learned that their
Information to the police department
was substantially the same as appeared
In The Tribune on Monday. Captain
Edwards refused two Tribune reporters
admittance to the headquarters room,
where the young men, Harris and
Jones, were being questioned.
The story was originally published
as a good one at the expense of Patrol
man .Matthews, but the matter seems
destined to receive minute considera

man. The father-in-law concluded to

Mr. Ackerman out of the building, and

Mrs. Noono Resonts Arrest for Stealing
from a North F.nd Clothesline nnd
Wanted to Fight Mrs. Wptklns for Side
Stakes of Any Amount.
The North End has had many family
differences patched up in alderman's
court, but yesterday Alderman Roberts
was called upon to act as peacemaker
In nn issue which he was unable to ad
judicate, and which furnished ludicrous
amusement for many spectators.
Mrs. George Noone, of Clark street,
a chronic police court character, was
being given a hearing on a chnrga pre
ferred by Mrs. W. IX Watklns, of
Mairket street. Mrs. Noone, It was
claimed, had surreptlously hypothe
cated the contents of the plaintiff's
clothesline, as long ago as last Decem
ber. A few days ago Mrs. Watklns" chil
dren told her that they had seen some
of their clothes worn by some children.
The mother kept a sharp lookout until
last Saturday morning, when she saw
one of her boy's waists on the back of
a strange youngster. She followed him
home, foe the purpose of obtaining the
garment, when she found that the boy's
parents,, who are In needy circum
stances, had been given the clothes by
Mrs. Noone. On stating her errand to
Mrs. Noone a wordy quarrel arose. Mrs.
Noone cut the clothes into fragments
with a large knire, and at the trial yes
terday claimed the only thing she was
sorry for was that Bhe had not given
Mrs. Watklns two black eyes.
The accused woman proved to be a
regular virago and could not be kept
quiet. Sho was committed to the
county Jail and whllo being taken there
by Constable Davis created much ex
citement by her resistance. Later In
the evening she was released on $300
ball, her brother, Patrick McGraw, be
coming her bondsman. She was re
cently released from Imprisonment for
stealing a goose from Pierce's market
on Penn avenue, and but a short while
ago badly scalded her first husband,
Dennis Munnley, during a family
quarrel. During yesterday's hearing
she several times challenged Mrs. Wat
kins to a fight for a purse of from $25
to $1,000 a side.
Arrangements Being Made in Paris
for 1 000.
An English paper says that the Paris
ians are determined that the great ex
hibition -of 1000 shall not fall by want
of forethought. Already five years In
advance the commercial circles of the
republic are In the throes of the neces
sary preliminary organization. Com
mittees are being formed to Insure an
adequate representation of the arts and
Industries of the departments, and
these again are to be spilt Into sub-committees
to control the districts. Under
arrangements so complete and effect
ive as these, there should be no ques
tion as to the ultimate success of the
exhibition, not only as a spectacle and
fete, but also as a sort of reflection in
little of the Industries and arts of the
French Republic. Five years, well
utilized, Is a period long enough to
cover works of considerable Impor
tance,, and the large scale upon which
the preparations are progressing por
tends a show of nearly unparalleled
magnitude and brilliancy.
Not content with a greater number of
bridges than almost any city In the
civilized world Venice, perhaps, ex
ceptedthe municipality of Paris, in the
Latin phrase, Is building another one
across the Seine to serve the conven
ience of the multitude of visitors ex
pected to crowd Into the gay capital
on what will certainly be a long remem
bered occasion. Little has yet trans
pired as to the probable scope and char
acter of the foreign exhibits. Invita
tions to participate in the exhibition
may be expected by the leading repre
sentative commercial chambers of this
country, and the response should cer
tainly be ready and hearty.

Talk of Club House and Grounds on
the Hill.
Projcet Started from a Society Woman's
Suggestion and Now Engages tho At
tention of Many-Anotlier Seheme
for a Business Men's Club,
Scranton's leading social circle, in
cluding: the younger people and married
folk, and the city's best-known busi
ness men are agitated with two propo
sitions of considerable magnitude.
One 1st the idea of abandoning the old
Lawn club and forming an organiza
tion or the "lawn and racquet" or
"country club" plan and acquiring a
roomy club house and grounds on the
hill. This Ib the project that Is consid
ered only In the light of a; purely social
club; but the business men are Interest
ed In forming a business men's club
and engaging quarters In the commer
cial section of the city, where they may
be accommodated and entertain busi
ness friends from abroad.
Neither proposition has yet met with
such great consideration as will lead to
a definite move, but In each case the
subject, which was first talked lightly
among a few, has become public prop
erty, many are Interested and It Is not
Improbable that one of the schemes
may bo brought ito a definite Issue.
Monroe Avon no Proporty Mentioned.
Mrs. V. W. Scranton Borne weeks
ago Bugfrested to one of tho best-konwn
ond one of tho most popular society
girls of the city that possibly the resi
dential proporty at the corner of Mon
roe avenue and Linden street might be
available for a society club house. The
matter was only mentioned In a gen
eral way and in casual conversation,
but when the attention of others was
engaged, the feasibility of the scheme
caused considerable discussion. It was
given especial attention In view of the
prospective tearing up of the Lawn
club's courts to make way for tho ap
proach to the new South Side bridge
from Spruce street.
While nothing tangible has resulted
It Is safe to predict that if the Lawn
club goers oult of .existence another
club of Boclal object will be formed.
Whether the house and grounds
scheme will engage such determined
action asi to lead to either a negative or
affirmative decision Is nf course a ques
tion. Gossip proposed to have the club
Include both young and old and enjoy
Indoor and outdoor functions. What
ever the decision may be there Is felt
a positive want for an exclusive build
ing where banquets, teas and recep
tions of a restrictive or semi-public
character can be given. A case In point
was the recent presence In Scranton
of Mrs. Hastings, whose introduction
to the city's representative people had
to be made In a hotel.
Another Scheme In View.
The Monroe avenue property is not
the only medium considered with a
view of bringing the matter to an issue.
A country club house along the Elm
hurst boulevard or a home In the vicin
ity of Nay Aug park is mentioned
among the possibilities.
J. C. Miller, who is about to build a
10-story building on Spruce street, has
been approached by several influential
business men and a hint given that if
he will include In his plans an arrange
ment for model club appartments on
the two upper floors, a business men's
club will be formed to occupy them.
Mr. Miller had considered the advisa
bility of a restaurant and roof garden
for the two floors mentioned, but
since the club project wns brought to
his attention! he will wait for the men
interested to take action in the matter.
Famous Turkish Dancer Will Be Thrco
Days in Scranton.
At Davis, theater for three days, be

Dance du Ventre. It Is universally con
ceded that for grace of execution In
the Dance du Ventre, Bhe has no equal.
It should be remembered that while
these dances may appear strange to
our eyes. In Turkey It Is regarded as
one of the national ceremonies, and as
presented by Omene, to thinking and
Intelligent people it is all that is ele
gant and beautiful. Omene appears

many others. Matinees dally.
