THE 6CBAOTON TBIBUXE SATITRDAT MORNING. FEBRUARY 8. 1898.
Guaranteed to Be the Best Made.
Scranton and Taylor.
WEST SIDE EVENTS.
Travel on West Lackawanna Avanua
Was Delayed bjr a Peculiar Acci
dent Yesterday Afternoon.
Street car and othpr vehicular travel
was retarded for over a half hour yes
terday afternoon by a peculiar acci
dent on Went Lackawanna" avenue.
Workmen under the supervision of
John Barber were mnvlwr a' large
smoke Black from Finch's foundry on
Eighth street to Robinson's brewery
on Seventh street. In order to make
the transportation it was necessary to
KO by way of West Lackawanna ave
nue. The stack is Blxty-five feet long;,
Is five foot deep and weighs five tons.
It was loaded upon the two trucks of
a waKon. each truck bearing the ex
tremities of the holler. Four horses
were attached and the trip begun. As
the West Lackawanna avenue corner
was being turned from Seventh street,
the rear wheels struck the elevated
sidewalk in an oblique way. This
caused the truck to swerve and the
end of the heavy boiler tumbled to the
The other end was on the opposite
side of Lackawanna avenue, thus ef
fectually blocking the road. After
about forty-five minutes work the bier
tube was moved so that It rested
lengthwise on the opposite side of the
avenue. Meanwhile the road was
blocked with wagons of every descrip
tion. Seventh street cars were de
layed and the passengers had to be
transferred from one oar to another.
This is another argument for the via
duct. If one had been there, no delay
to traffic would have occurred.
Profession vs. Trad.
At last night's meeting of the literary
circle connected with 8t. Bremlen
council it was decided after a lengthy
debate that a profession Is a better
medium for the attainment of success
than is , a trade. The debaters were:
Atlirmative. Tom Hurst. John Hurst;
negative. P. F. Duffy, John F. Durkin.
The negative side won. In addition to
the debate there was a declamation
by William Gllroy. entitled "The Old
Man In Church." It was a pleasing ef
fort. Thomas Larkln recited Mark An
tony's oration from Shakespeare's
"Julius Caesar." A special reading by
M. Sullivan on the subject. "Rhetoric,"
was instructive to the auditors. An es
say on "Success" was read by Frank
McClane. It was a thoughtful crea
tion. The debate closed the evening's
Party on Washburn Street.
Harry, son of Mr. and Mrs. T. M.
Millar, of Washburn street, was ten
dered a party last evening. The time
was spent In many enjoyable ways.

Comparatively littledamage was done
on the South Washington avenue Flats
during the recent storm, when it Is
taken into consideration that the river
Is swollen and the Roaring Brook and
Stafford Meadow Brook streams are
abnormally high. As a rule the water
dams up around Central Park garden
and floods all the cellars In that block.
Very little complaint has come this
time. On the upper Flats the surface
water has been Hooding the cellars
some but not as much as in former
years. The only damage of any con
sequence noted was the carrying of the
small bridge that crosses the Roaring
lirook below the North works, over
which the narrow gauge cars run be
tween both mills. On Plttston avenue
the flood was abated yesterday, but on
Friday it was to the depth of three
feet In some places between Birch and
Beech streets. At Alder street, also,
a deplorable condition existed. This
was the result of choked gutters from
snow and ice.

BASE BALL GOSSIP.
Base ball Is rapidly becoming the na
tional tme of Venesuela. It has but re
cently been introduced at Caracas, but
paying crowds are attending the sumps.
A private car will be alloted the Cincin
nati pluyers and newspaper men who will
accompany the team on Its southern trip.
Three newspaper men will go on the trip
as the guests of the club.
Following la an extract of a letter re
cently received from "Piggy" Ward: "I
am enjoying the best of health and since
early In the winter have reduced my
weelght from 217 to 201 pounds and ex
pect to get down to Uo. I shall do my best
the coming season. I am handling a pair
of spirited mules and you ought to see
me in the sleigh today it's more sport
than playing base bail. I don't do a
thing but pass everything on the road.
My work keeps me driving all the time,
and when I report for duty I shall be
In the best condition, aa I have taken
better care of myself this winter than st
any time since I've been In the business."
Bays a Rochester exchange: "New as
to the heroes who will perspire for the
gratification of the talent. The team
promises to be a grand collection of slug
gers, pitchers and . catchers. Of course
tha ereateat of them all will be that glori
ous man whose abilities shine like the ris
ing sun and who will Illuminate aecond
base with a daggling glare. This Is Shan
non, the star of Wllkes-Barre. He will
manage the team with great care and
diplomacy, beside playing second base in
a way calculated to Inspire the ardent
rooter with joy unheard of, untold of,
unthought of. The team will begin the
season with twenty men, ten of whom will
be pitchers. In fact the team will simply
revel In pitchers. Everybody who has not
something elne to do will be a pitcher.
It w' be difficult to go anywhere near
Rive-Tile park without meeting a pitch
er. It seems as if the outlook at present
ror me team m unusually goon, inert
seems to be no reason why Rochester
should not be able to get a glimpse of
the banner at the end of the . season.

THAT BIU TURNPIKE
Suggested for Ending the
WHAT IT IS PROPOSED TO 1)0
If City Can Secure Seven-Eighths of a
Mile of the Koad Which Lies
Within the City the Pros
lent Is Solved.
To solve the question of giving to
the North End an outlet that will ac
comodate the immense traffic which is
carried on with the country districts
whence our market supplies are de
rived is a riddle which many a munici
pal legislator has fallen before in the
last decade. The present councils have
taken the subject in hand with a deter
mination to see it to a successful con
signation and to set the ball In motion
the select branch has given the matter
into the hands of a special committee
with instructions to frame a report em
bodying any recommendations that
they choose to suggest.
After six months of painstaking work
In the collection ct data and the dis
cussion of possible solutions the com
mittee arranged to meet last night to
take some action. Much to the disgust
of Mr. Roche who is chairman of the
committee and the prime mover in
the affair there was no quorum present
and nothing definite could be done.
However Mr. Lansing and Mr. Manley,
the two other members present, listened
attentively to Mr. Roche's Informal re
port of what lit had accomplished and
the plan he had to suggest.
Practical Plan suggested.
This plan seems to be a practical and
satisfactory one and will no doubt meet
with the approval of councils. It pro
vides for the acquisition of a part of the
street by the city and the perniunent
Improvement of all of it. The turnpike
is altogether a little loss than four
miles in length. Two miles of It, or
to b exai;t ll.r.37 feet, are within the
city limits, comprised In what is West
Market street. The Turnpike company
has always objected to deeding any
part of the road to the city, because a
shortening of their turnpike would de
crease the earning power of their road,
inasmuch as the Turnpike and Plank
road act under which the company 1h
incorporated provides that it shall
charge only a certain amount of toll
per mile or fraction of a mile.
Through conferences with City En-
I glner Plilllir and 8. B. Price, the
i city's special attorney in the case, Mr.
Roche has discovered that the company
tan shorten its road sevtm-eifthths of a
mile without being compelled to de
crease its toll. To be more explicit:
The road Is four miles long and on that
basis the present toll rates are charged.
The same rate however can be charged
for 3V4 miles.
As this seven-elshths of a milt? la
therefore of no use to the Turnpike
company. Mr. Koche feels that the com
pany would be willing to part with it in
consideration of the city agreeing to
Improve It. He also has cause to be
lieve, so he says, that the Turnpike
company will be willing to Improve the
greater part of the remaining portion
of the road at their own expense.
Street May Then Ue Graded.
Should the Turnpike company agree
to this plan the property holders can
without much coercion be Induced to
grade. rave and sewer the street and
the Turnpike company doing likewise
on their portion of the street the ques
tion will be satisfactory solved and
best of all without much expense to the
A meeting win be called next week,
at some time when It is convenient
for the representatives of the Turnpike
company to be present, and theri the
whole matter will be formally present
ed and discussed.

MR. JONES ON THE STAND.
Attorney Smith Wanted to Get His
After court adjourned Thursday af
ternoon Attorney Cornelius Smith hnd
District Attorney John H. Jones ap
pear before Attorney C. C. Donovan,
acting as commissioner In the Jennings
perjury case, and Mr. Jones' deposition
was taken. Mr. Smith's purpose in
bringing the district attorney to tes
tify before Commissioner Donovan, was
to use it as evidence in the trial of
Jennings for perjury. Several Inter
rogatories were- put to Mr. Jones which
he refused to answer. The questions
were calculated to draw out opinions
from Mr. Jones, which he would not give
In advance of the trial of the case.
Mr. Smith wanted the district attor
ney to admit that if Jennings sv-ore
Myron Kasson packed the jury, Jen
nings should not be held for perjury if
Mr. Kasson has not denied the charge.
The purpose of the questions failed.
Mr. Jones told Mr. Smith they were
very improper and he either refused
to answer or Rave an answer that
evaded the purpose of the questioner.
Noah After the Flood.
The first fruit planted by Noah when
he left the ark was the grape, the most
healthy of all the products of the earth.
All through the Bible we read of grapes
and wine from grapes being recom
mended as the first remedy for the ills
of life: but It is pure juice wine, not
watered and sugared juice that the
Bible refers to.
Sugared wines are highly alchohollc
and starchy; the sugar making excess
of alcohol and other products not be
longing to a healthful wine.
Speer of New Jersey, the oldest wine
grower in the United States, has studi
ously avoided water and sugar or any
foreign substance whatever, but has
bis wine fully matured by great age
and careful handling. l
