DECISIVE ACTION NECESSARY
William Connell. President of the In
dustrial Operator's Association. Says
'- That tho Schome to Fight the
Carriers lias Been Dismissed.
A story was sent out from New Tork
yesterday to the effect that the Individ
ual coal oierators will mine and sell
a million tuns of coal at $2 per tone in
the hope that it may force the carry
ins companies to restore prices and
place limits to their outputs.
Last' night the United Press sent sev
eral denials of the story, and one dis
patch In particular stated that there
was not the least foundation for the
This Is the way the denials read:
Philadelphia. Aug. 7. Leading Indi
vidual coal operators here stated today
that there la no foundation for the re
port published this morning that 1,000,
000 tuns of anthracite coal la to be
placed on the market at $2 a ton.
Philadelphia, Aug. 7. A representa
tive of the tlrm of Coxe Bros. & Co. this
afternoon said: "We have never been
approached on the question of unload
ing coal on the market and do not be
lieve anybody elst has. Suppose we
would attempt such a move. Is It not
reasonable to believe the railroad com
panies would meet the reduction In traf
fic. With tolls $1.73 per ton, any one
can readily see what would become of
the individual operator who offered his
product at $2 a ton f.o.b."
IMspntchcs Arc ot Correct.
Notwithstanding these despatches the
report Is in the main true. Th scheme
has been discussed and that this is a
fact we have no less an authority than
William bonnell, president of the Indi
vidual Coal Operators' association.
The report, as sent out from New
Tork, contained the following:
New York, Aus. 7. As a result of
the dally increasing demoralization In
coal rates caused by the-coal carrying
railroads, the individual anthracite ope
rators have decided to take matters
Into their own hands. It is announced
that they will forthwith place 1,000.000
tons of anthracite on the market at $2
a ton, unless prompt action Is taken
by the coal can'insr lines to restore
prices anil limit the output.
Mr. Connell Is quoted 'by the Truth
as flaying' that the above In the main
Is what ought to toe done, and what
has been discussed by 'the Individual
operators. They have not decided to
take matters In their own hands as yet,
but It Is not Improbable that they will
do so. At present coal Is In many
cases belngr mined and sold at a loss,
and unless some drastto measures are
taken the Individual operators may
have to shut down. Many of the small
er optrators, Mr. Connell Is quoted as
saying, find It cheaper to remain Idle
than to mine coal at the present un
E. H. Sturges characterized the re
port as an exaggerated statement, but
concurred In Mr. Connell's opinion that
a decisive movement on the part of the
Individual operators Is not altogether

FROM LOS ANGELES.
W. E. Youhlc, of That City, Is Here nnd
Knows Nothing of Henry B. Carey or
Dr. I.eete's Fortune-Soys the Firm of
Wells k Lee Is Prominent and Respect
able. Among the arrivals at the Wyoming
yesterday was W. E. Touhle, a resi
dent of Los Angeles, Cal. Of course
one of the first subjects brought up by
Scrantontans was the Dr. Leete legacy
affair, a tale of two cities with Scran
ton and Los Angeles as the two cities.
Mr. Yotkhle tieard none of the particu
lars of the story until he came to Scran
ton yesterday, and evinced a deep In
terest in its recital.
He said he has been a resident of Los
Angeles for over twenty years and
knows every man of any prominence In
that locality, but he never heard of
a Henry B. Carey or of any wealthy
man whose will caused any unusual
comment during the past year. He Is
also well ecquainted with the law firm
of Wells & Lee, and knows them to be
one of the leading and most, trust
worthy firms In the state of California.
Mr. Touhle has recently come from
California and Is quite confident that
if any such thing as the Carey affair
happened there he would have heard of
it. He does not remember of ever hav
ing reail anything concerning It either.

anal Excursion Was Financially and
Socially Success-Married Men
Were Superior to Bachelora.
Five train loads. In all thirty-five
cars, were required to carry the Jolly
party of Elks and their friends to Lake
Ariel yesterday. The day opened aus
piciously for their third annual excur
sion and continued unabated until the
return of the last train, about 10.30 p.
m., ending a very successful venture,
financially and socially.
Large parties from Honesdale, Haw
ley and Carbondale came over In cars
and carriages, among them many
brothers of the order. In fact, the Elks
were very numerous; great herds of
them stalked about the grounds; and
when they wanted a drink they walked
down to the lake and then went di
rectly back again to the picnic grounds,
where refreshments of all kinds were
Irish, German nnd Native Elks.
There was also a great variety of
him, the Irish Elk, the German Elk and
a large number of the American type.
The dancing pavilion was the center
of great attraction all day long. Bau
er's band furnished the music for the
dancers, and the eagerness with which
the great throng tripped the light fan
tastic was an evidence of its satisfac
tory nature. At Intervals the band
gave brief concerts about the grove
and this was a very acceptable feature.

considerable excitement. The married

"The Electric City" and "The Me

If new churches and religious sects
continue to spring up and thrive within
the confines of the city, Scranton will
be known as the 'ISecond City of
Churches." At least that was the
sentiment expressed last night by a
non-church member who has resided
here for only two years. He said:

count for It by two things In particu

classes ;are law-abiding; second, the

two reasons: One is that the com

not make their declination a sort of

course lesser reason, Is that about fif

The Elks are ready to swear by the
prophetic powers of Dolph Abherton
and his signal flags. In the midst
of a drlzzllng-good-for-all-nlghit-and-part-of-the-day

There would be no more cholera In

but unless intelligently directed can do
little to ward off 'these diseases that
threaten the tender years of babyhood.
Only when children are kept fully
nourished and unexposed to contam
ination In ithelr food, do they run no
risk from the hot August days and
nights. Diarrhoeal diseases, the great
scourge of Infants, are wholly due to
Improper food, encouraged by high
temperature. But for this Ignorance

the scheme. Mr. Amerman got off
something original without being
aware of It until the little apeecn was
pointed out to him. They were talking
about Grover Cleveland, and mind you
Mr. Amerman Is a Democrat. "I think,"
he said, "If Grove Cleveland would only
declare that he doesn't believe the peo

may have been no particular signifi

but if I were interested in Republican
politics I would be tempted to look Into
the affair to see whether or not there
was anything like petty spite work
connected with It." It is a singulnr
fact that It Is not customary to stop an

hi also a singular fact that a police off!

never before been questioned, and It Is
also an unusual thing for councils to

mistake of councils ihe was not tech
