ELECTRIC LIGHT TRIO
Taking Depositions is the Olyphaat
Doroagn lajaactioa Proceedings.
ANOTHER HEARING OX FRIDAY
Citlxcas of Olyphant Want to Prevent the
Coaacll from Awarding Contraeta
for an Electrlo Light Plant
to Certain Concerns.
Depositions were taken In the main
court room yesterday by Stenographer
Frank Branda in the Injunction pro
ceedings of J. M. Sihenk, R. J. Gal
lagher and Dominlck iHoward against
the burgess and council of the boruuirh
of Olyphant to restrain them from ex
ecuting a contract for a now electrio
light plant for the borough.
A plant Is at present owned and ope
rated by the borough, but Its capacity
is not sufficient for 4iie needs of that
growing community, and It whs de
cided to put in another one capable of
generating a greater amount of elec
tricity, lilds were received and the
council awarded contraeta for the ma
chinery, boilers, etc., and It Is to pre
vent the deal being consummated that
the lnjuiiotlon hi nbked.
The prayer of the complainants asks
"that a preliminary Injunction may be
Issued restraining the defendants from
entering into contracts for materkil for
an electrlo light plant with the Ocneral
Electric company, and the Scranton
Supply and Machinery company, or
from carrying out or making payments
on such contracts If already executed
and from Issuing borough bonds or us
ing the proceeds of the tame in making
payments on fluid contracts, and from
selling, giving or exchanging any of the
property of said borough in carrying
out or -executing any such contracts."
What They Allege.
It is maintained by the complainants
that the tlrms awarded the contracts
by the council weiv not the lowest
bidders, and (furthermore that they
were In addition to be given the appli
ances of the present plant, worth Jil.UOO.
At the hearing yesterday Attorney I.
H. Burns appeared, for th complain

Attorney John Manning for the bor

present were: '11. J. tlallagher, James
W. O'Brien, J. J. Fadden. Burgess Ed
ward Howard. J. J. Flynn, A. F. Gil
lespie and M. W. Cuminlngs.
The first witness whose testimony
was taken was U. W. Payne, of Klmtra,
N. Y one of the unsuccessful 'bidders.
He was followed by A. K. Harroun
and Mr. Howard, of Syracuse. Council
man J. W. O'Brien was then examined
at length. He is one of the councilmen
who opposed awarding the contracts
to the General Electric and Scranton
Supply and 'Machinery companies, and
he gave his reasons fur so doing. After
his testimony had been taken the hear
ing was adjourned until Friday morn
ing at 9 o'clock, when other deposi
tions will be taken.
The testimony heard yesterday did
not sustain the charges made that the
council had acted improperly in award
ing the contracts to the General Elec
trical company and the Scranton Sup
ply and 'Machinery company.

STREET SWEEPER TESTED.
Mr. Brooks' Invention Proves to B a
Several tests were made yesterday on
Spruce street of the street sweeper ln
vented'by Charles iB. Brooks, of Newark,
N. J. Mr. Brooks Is the porter of one
of the Pu'.lman cars that run on the
Delaware, Lackawanna and Western
railroad and is of an Ingenious turn
of mind. He has heretofore devised a
ticket punch and a street car fender.
The death of his partner In the fender
enterprise robbed him of his Interest
In that Invention.
He succeeded In Interesting George M.
Hallstead and P. S. Page In his sweeper
model and they were so favorably Im
pressed with It on examination
that they made tt possible for Mr.
Brooks to have a sweeper built. The
order was given to Bloom, of this city,
who completed the sweeper a short
It Is made principally of wood and
weighs less thiui a ton. On the front
of the machine almost under the seat
occupied by the driver is a revolving
brush that can be raised and lowered
by an adjusting arrangement. Behind
this brush Is an Iron scraper to clear
the dirt that the brush cannot move.
The brush 'throws the dirt backward
Into a hopper, where carriers operated
by an endless chain and a sprocket
wheel carry It Into box, from which It
falls Into 'bags. The suction created
by the carriers while in motion has the
elfect of drawing the dust from the
clearing brush, making the machine al
most dustleas. Great success attended
the trials made yesterday on Spruce
street. The machine swept the pave
ment clean and made little or no dust.
As sooh as the gearing of the sweeper
has been ararnged to the satisfaction
of the inventor, who supervised yes
terday's tests, it will be taken to Jllng
hamton and Elmlra, where It will be
tested by the boards of public works of

Cleveland's Minstrels Will Be nt the
Tomorrow, at matinee and evening,
the famous Cleveland minstrels will
occupy the Frothlngham stage. The
Gazette, Fort Worth, Tex., speaks thus
of the great minstrel show:
"If It is true, as so many are willing
to say, that minstrelsy is in Its decad
ency in this country. It wlil not be long
before It Is again as popular as ever
with such superb attractions for the
people to enjoy as was presented in
Fort Worth last night by iMr. Cleve
land's combinatilon. It was the great
est minstrel show ever seen In this city.
There were so many new features that
there was but a small resemblance to
the old-time minstrel shows. The Jokes
were refreshingly new and the songs
squarely up-to-date. Mr. Cleveland has
done a great deal fur minstrelsy In put
ting such a uniformly strong company
on the road, and the magnificent audi
ence enjoyed the show hugely both at
the matinee and at night."

Deputy Sheriff Frank Ryan Is kept busy
answering the questions of those who are
anxious to know the prospects of finding
coal at Dalevllle. Mr. Ryan, owns a farm
of 1W acres at that place and spends his
summers on It. Some time ago he began
to put down a bore hole for water and as
soon as the derrick made Its appearance
on the ground the conclusion was at once
reached that Mr. Ryan was after coal.
The work of putting down the bore hole
Is now completed. At a depth of l.r9 feet
an abundance of water was found, but of
coal there was none. Mr. Ryan says that
the prospector would strike coal as quick
ly at Dalevllle by boring upward as he
would by going down.

and Fonnd Nothing but Slat What
ta State Geological Survey
Ha to Say on th Subject.
The newspaper publicity of the pros
pecting for coal by Scranton parties In
the vicinity of Stroudsburg has resulted
In a letter from a well-known business
man of Slatlngton to The Tribune. He
is T. A. Y. Hodgson, manager of the
Hodgson Sand company of Scranton
and Slatlngton. He denies that there Is
any evidence of coal In that region and
his letter contains the following:
I see by The Tribune that land Is being
purchased In Hamilton township, Monroe
county, in expectation of tlnding coal, I
am also sorry to see It Is on the word of an
expert. Now, my partner In Hodgson,
Yates & Co., George Yates, and I pros
pected this territory three years ago, and I
will take oath there is not an Inch of a
coal seam In It. There Is a massive bed of
slate called the "Marcellus ' slate running
through it. This slate on Its outcrop looks
like a coal outcrop, and thousands of dol
lars have already been expended for which
not one cent has or will be realised. Al io
several bore holes have been put down

Every word of survey I will verify by per
sonal Investigation, and, more, a bore hole
was put down In them for coal about
eight years ago, I think a Mr. Sharkey, of
West Plttston, ran the diamond drill:
also, two years ago, the farmers raised
tl.OUO for another hole: also, some miner
from the Wyoming field tried It lust year.
At Millport, two miles from Lehigh Gap,
the Black Marcellus is manufactured for

burn slowly and give an excessive

WILL MAKE YOUR SKIN SOFT.
llomc Mado Lotions That Are Not Injuri
ous and Exceedingly Boneflelal.
From the Philadelphia Times.
Take one pound of fresh, unsalted
butter, from perfectly sweet cream, the
same of sweet almond oil, one and one
fourth pounds of castile soap, two
puundi decoction of marshmallow, one
fourth pint of alcohol. Melt in a stone
Jar at low heat, stirring well, perfume
to liking, and when well mixed pour
Into cups and cool.
This is a capital domestic applica
tion, but it is best to melt the butter
first, pour the clear part from the white,
cheesy sediment, and keep It melted
with a drachm of gum benzoin tied in
a thin muslin suspended In It for twen-ty-four
hours before making up the re
cipe. This oil of butter, benzoinated,
and kept in small covered cups, la of It
self a very good emollient to nourish
and heal the skin.
You hear a good deal about lemon
juice as a lotion to cure freckles, as If
they were ink stains, but lemons and
lime Juice taken inwardly will do much
more to Improve complexion than they
ever will outside. Lime juice and water
aa a beverage is an excellent summer
medicine, and the juice diluted may be
used as a wash tor what It Is worth.
Lotions of any kind, however, dry too
quickly to be of any decided use, and
pomades are much better for lasting
effect on (the skin. A clean, waxy po
made that does not grease or soil Is of
great service in keeping the complex
ion cool and clear from the heat erup
tions or the hard pimples under the
skin which sudden changes and chfeuk
of perspiration by a change of tempera
ture will cause in tlie fairest flesh.
These pomades early and faithfully au
plied do more to prevent freckles than
any lotion will to cure them.
For a slight tan a teaspoonful of
lemon juice In half a pint of rose water,
with half a teaspoonful of vegetable
glycerine Is a pleasant, cooling and
blanching lotion. To have marked ef
fect, lotions should be sponged on the
face many times a day and dried with
out wiping. It is still better to spray
the fuce with them by an atomizer.
This little comfort has a useful part In
toilet practice, as Its spray Is more fully
absorbed by the skin than washes with
cloth or sponge, andJts cooling effect Is
exquisite in heat and sickness. Don't
allow your druggist to tell you there Is
no such thing as vegetable glycerine,
for it Is the best, and fastidious people
think the only kind to use for the toilet
or In medicine. Jle may never have
heard of It that is more than likely
but he won't go very far without find
ing It. A teaspoonful In a pint of lotion
or toilet water prevents rapid drying,
and makes th application more cool
ing and grateful. Vegetable glycerine
Is separated from nut and seed oils
Just as common glycerine Is from ani
mal fat, but Is much purer.
Three things are to be guarded
