United States Senator 01. 8. Quay, ac
companied by his secretary, Y. F.
Wright, and chief right bower. Ser-geant-at-Arms
J. R. Harrah, of the
state senate. Is at the Wyoming house,
where he arrived quietly and unherald
ed at an early hour last evening.
His visit had been anticipated, but he
was not expected until this monnlng.
which may account for the absence of
Senator Quay's Scranton friends when
that distinguished person alighted from
the 6.45 train at nhe Jersey Central
depot, lie walked to tho hotel, where
he was greeted by two of his local lieu
tenants. Major T. F. Penman and City
Treasurer Keese O. Brooks. Last night
he received Informally a number of
callers and later was closeted for an
hour or more with several visitors who
aro looking after his stte organization
fences In this region. Today calls of a
more formal nature will be made and a
ffcial and more Important conference
will be held.
As the senator, preceded by Sergeant
Harrah and followed by Secretary
WrlRht. alighted from tha train, he
seemed o betray a sense of pleasure
rather than annoyance at the absence
of his Scranton political friends. He
glanced cursorily at a trio of reporters,
one of whom he knew and saluted with
a hurried handshake and then passed
through the depot and up the steps
Into the street. He did not suggest the
need of a carriage, but. piloted by Ser
geant Harrah, who was here in his
chiefs Interests a week ago, walked
across 'the Lackawanna avenue bridge
and direct to the Wyoming house.
One Man Knew lllm.
Pfulnly and carelessly dressed In a
lightweight sack suit of dark brown
color, a black bow tie and a straw hat,
and without a cane or valise, ho at
tracted no especial attention and was
apparently unknown to the throng
which passed along Lackawanna ave
nue, exempting on person whose iden
tity could not be ascertained. This in
dividual was middle-aged, black mous
tached and plainly but respectably
dressed. He accosted Senator Quay
near Penn avenue where there was a
brief conversation and then the party
continued lt3 walk to the hotel.
Secretary Wright first registered the
names of Mr. Quay and Sergeant Har
rah. as hailing from "Beaver," and then
attached his own name and "Washing
ton." To Mr. Quay was assigned two
connecting rooms on the first floor and
a room each to the two accompanying
him. As the party turned from the reg
ister Major Penman and Mr. Brooks
entered the corridor front the street.
The former and Mr. Quay exchanged
salutations, after which Mr. Brooks
Aftr net more than a minute's con
versation Mr. Quay remarked that he
would meet with his friends in the eve
ning. He then went to his room.
From 8 until nearly 10 o'clock it be
came known tha t the senator wa3 In the
city and a number of well-known Re
publicans called and in each case their
cards were answered by a request to

said lie had not been In Scranton since

Governor Hartranft. While he waj not
personally acquainted with the re

he remarked, he knew of Its rapid

Would Not Tslk Politics.
To reporters and friends he would not
talk concerning the present factional
Quay-Hastings fight, which has caused
his presence here; to reporters he ex
pressed himself firmly on this point,
while among his visitors he evaded or
turned any conversation which might
have led to a discussion, of the matter.
Probably this lafternoon Mr. Quay
will return to Wllkes-Barre. Ho may
go as far north as Susquehanna county,
which has two delegates yet to elect,
and is expected to look after Monroe
county, where one delegate Is yet to be
named. He propose to return to Phil

Misconception of ths .New Ordor at Moses

after the Moses Taylor hospital will be
open to all patients with the exception
of those affected with contagious dis
eases. Heretofore the benefits of the Institution-
were confined to sick or Injured

na and Western Railroad company and
the Lackawanna Iron and Steel com
pany. Not even the wives or children
of the beneficiaries would be received
at the hospital or given outside attend
ance by the hospital corps, as ft was
against the decrees of the charter.
Now, however, the Institution Is open
to all. Patients will be received a-nd
treated at rates varying from $7 to $30
a week, according to the accommoda

A false Impression was given out
by some of the Sunday papers that the
new order of things would place Jrhe
hospital on the same footing with char

Or. Leet stated yesterday that It was
he who had suggested the new plan to
the directors and one of his principal
reasons for so doing was his belief that
thereby the hospital could be made self

one of her boarders. 'Mrs. Fisher has
that fascination about her which Is
valuable to some widows, and which In
this case brought as a lover to her feet

This Williams was wont to have cus

while his fellow boarders had to satisfy
themselves with prunes and apple

When, a few weeks ago, William
found himself eating stewed apples and

began to suspect that ha was losing bis

was actually tntlmated to him that his
board bill was due, he became satisfied
that something was amiss, and after
keeping his eyes wide open for a day
or two learned that another boarder
was occupying ths position of star.
His Jealousy could not stand this, so

went smoothly until Saturday night,

fickleness of her nature by going to a
picnic with another boarder. When
she returned Blake met her, and after
putting his rival to flight took his
boarding mistress sweetheart Into the
house and beat her unmercifully.
Her cries for help awoke the midnight
stillness and Ottlcer John Thomas, who
happened to be nigh, soon rescued her
and placed Blake under arrest. His
new method of dealing with a fickle
sweetheart will receive the attention of
Alderman Millar today.
THE ROSA ARUM E.N T.
Detective Frank Agll's Pepoiitloa Read
Before the Three Judges.
From Friday tho argument for a new
trial In the Ieonnrdt Rosa case was
continued until Saturday morning. At
torney Janus J. H. Hamilton spoke of
the contradictory evidence of the prin
cipal witnesses for the commonwealth,
sod ho criticised the charge of Judge
Edwards to the Jury.
Mr. Hamilton produced the deposi
tion of Detective Frank Aglt. whose
testimony at the trial, as well as his
efforts beforehand, had, In fact, all to
do with tlw conviction of Rosa. The
detective swore thai he did not use
any undue influence, but that tho pri
soner of his own volition confessed to
the murder, informing Agll where to
find the revolver that was used.
In his deposition Agll confesses that
he did rot -tell all he knew; that he sup
pressed evidence which would favor
Rosa. On the witness stand he said
he used no uc.due Influence; In his depo
sition he avers that he reached Rosa's
good graces through the medium of a
pint of whisky. On the stand he did
not tell that Rosa said Laulsso first at
tacked him with a scissors and that the
shooting was done In self-defense. He
admits this In the deposition, as was
announced In Saturday's Tribune that
he would. Attorney John G. McAskle's
argument was arrayed against the ar
gument of District Attorney Jones to
The argument of iMr. Jones on the
part of the commonwealth was a com
prehensive and careful review of the
mala features of the crime, the trial
and the argument for a new trial.
Reports from the county Jail are that
Boschlno and Rosa are very much wor
ried over the murder a week ago at
Jessup; they have expressed grave
fears 'that It will militate against their
chances for a new trial. Bezek devotes
the most of his time reading religious
books and praying. He Is settling him
self for the end, having given up hope
of escape from the gallows.

John Gibbons the poor board convened
Saturday evening to take action on the
application of the members of the
stranded Laurel Hill Park Opera com
pany for transportation to their homes.
An appeal had bn made to Mr. Gib

one absent from the meeting.
The question of using the publlo
funds for the purpose of sending tho
unfortunate singers to their homes did
not meet with favor. Mr. Gibbons

have been helped by the board of Asso

O. JUDGE'S RESOLUTION
Caused a Lively Debate at the Area
bald Diocesan Convention.
DELEGATES VOTED IT DOWN
Tilt Between Mr. Burka and Mr. Judge.
Addresses That Wero Delivered to
ths Delegates Names of tha
New Officers Solceted.
The quarterly convention of societies
forming the First district of the Catho
lic Total Abstinence union of the dio
cese of Scranton was held In, Father
Mathew Opera house, at Archbald, yes
Delegates from nearly every society
In the district were present Besides
these were many who are prominently
Identified with the temperance move
inn't. Conspicuous among them were
Mr. O'llara, of Parsons, president of
the Diocesan union; iM. T. Burke, of
Carbondale; Editor James F. Judge, of
Smvuton; Dr. Connor, of Scranton, and
ex-Mayor John Kelly, of Carbondalo.
Mr. Loft us, vice-president of the First
district, presided. Tho convention was
opened with prayer by Hev. T. J. Oom
erford, pastor of St. Thomas' church of
Arohhuld, who also mude a brief ad
dress of welcome to 'I he delegates.
He expressed a hope that their de
liberations would be productive of good
to the total ubstlneiice movement. He
told them to waste no 'time In talking
of the evil effects of Intemperance, be
cause Its baneful Influence was well
enough admitted to make discussion of
that subject unnecessary. It is not
talk that accomplishes, he said; It Is
organization well directed and union
for a common purpose. He cautioned
the delegates against the expression of
radical views and urged them to seek
In their deliberations the golden mean
that combines conviction with charily.
President O'llnra's Remarks.
President O'Hara followed with a
fervent plea for individual effort In the
cause of total abstinence. A little per
sonal effort, properly directed, he said,
can sometimes accomplish a great deal,
and good example Is always more po
tent than five speeches. The delegates,
he continued, should do their best as
Individuals to help along the cause and
by giving good example show 'the bene
ficent results that flow from the virtue
IMIss Mary C. iRarrett, of Carbondalo,
eloquently" told of the ruin that Intem
perance had wrought and 'the wonder
ful amount of good that had come to the
world since the birth of the total ab
stinence movement. She pleaded for
greater Interest In temperance work
and dircted her remarks particularly
to the ladles, who have heretofore been
Indifferent to Us merits. She held that
in this work woman should work in
harmony with "those who are seeking
to Improve her condition.
Dr. Connor, of Scranton, told of the
injurious effects of over-Indulgence in
alcoholic Fi'lmulnnts on tho human sys
tem and produced a formidable lot of
Btaitlftics and opinions to support his
theories. John Kelly, of Carbondale,
and Vice-President Timothy McCoy, of
Hyde Park, also made brief addresses
calculated to encourage the delegates.
The speechmaklng over the creden
tials of the delegates were considered
and the following were reported pres
ent: Delegates In Attendance.

Vice-President Loftus made an. en
couraging report of the progress of the
district since Its last convention. Mr.
Burke, of Carbondale, spoke of the ad
vlsalblUty of holding lectures and en
tertainments to keep up active Interest
In th work of the societies, and sug
gested that the matter be discussed ait
this session. The matter was tempo
rarily laid aside.
Mr. Judge, of Scranton, who was not
a delegate, created a lively time by
asking the convention to consider the
Mr. Judge's Resolution.
Resolved, That we 'heartily concur
with and heartily endorse the action
recently taken by the Pittsburg Total
Abrtlnence union, foil lt efforts to sup
press .the manufacture of beer by the
Uenedritlne Order of Christian Broth
ers of Western Pennsylvania, and that
the co-operation of the bishop of said
dlorcse be asked to suppress the un
holy traffic which Is a disgrace and
scandal to the Catholic church.
Mr. Campbell, of Cairbondale, intro
duced the resolution, and Mr. Burke,
with equal promptness, rose to oppose
It. He tatd that the order to which the
resolution was referred was a great In
stitution devoted to education. It was
not engaged In the sale of beer. Before
considering the resolution he snld the
convention, should be sure of Its
ground and not condemn something It
knew nothing about. It was a matUr
for the hierarchy and the societies of
Pittsburg diocese to consider, and was
entirely out of place anywhere else.
Mr. O'Hara spoke In similar strain.
The resolution, he said, was one of a
character that invariably creates dis
sension and rarely accomplishes any
thing good. He believed the matter
should be left with the societies of the
diocese In which the Institution Is lo
cated. tla scored Mr. Bnrke.
Mr. Kelly, while commending the seal
of Mr. Judge, thought likewise, and Mr.
McCaffrey believed that if the delegates
would confine their attention to home
they would find more than enough to
do. Mr. Judge defended his resolution,
and was particularly severe on Mr.
Burke, who accused him of having In
troduced tho resolution for sensational
Mr. Judge held It to be tha duty of
ths convention to protest, but found
few of tha same opinion, for the resolu
tion was lost by an almost unanimous
Mr. McCoy advocated the holding of
literary and social sessions by the so
cieties of ths district and thought much
good would come from them. Hs ex
pressed a belief that If these sessions
wars mora frequent membership would
be Increased and there would toe fewer
young men attracted to tha saloons.
Mr. MoCaffrey was also of opinion
that entertainments would do much
good, and he suggested that on the eve
ning of each quarterly convention a
lecture be given under tha ausplcles of
the society, entertaining tha conven
tion. Ha also offered a resolution pro
viding a per capita tax be levied to
pay tha expenses of such lecture. This
motion was declared unconstitutional.
New Officers Klccted.
Tha following officers were then
elected for the ensuing year: Vice
president. J. F. Loftus, Jessup; secre
tary, John Mulraney, Carbondale;
treasurer, P. M. Campbell, Carbondale;
trustees. W. F. Malloy, Carbondale;
Andrew Pldgeon, Carbondale. Carbon
dale was also selected as the place for
the next convention, which will be held
on tha first 8unday In October.

with William J. Burke yesterday re

Mr. liurke, when asked if he would
make a plain statement of the case

a long while, and then remarked that
he preferred not to talk about the mart
