Samuel C. Mahedy, of Minooka. was

before Alderman Peter Hobling, of the
Eleventh ward, where he was confront
ed by Nora McGlynn, the girl he be
trayed, her mother and father and their
attorney, George Al. Watson. The con
stable was the recipient of much threat
ening abuse from the dashing young
prisoner and took the precaution of
manacling him to prevent any attempt
The offence for which he was arrested
Saturday night and on which he ex
pected to be given a hearing was of
having unlawful relations with Miss
McGlynn; but he was disappointed and
found that there was another warrant
against htm for giving drugs and using
an instrument with Intent to per
form a criminal operation. Con
stable Woelkers swore out a warrant
on the charge of carrying concealed
weapons, he having found a large "bil
ly" In Mahedy's Jeans.

ing and the alderman fixed the total

Later he was balled out by Martin Mc
Donough, the Minooka merchant.

A melo-drama In which love nnd race
horses are mixed in about equal pro

Academy of Music last night. It is
called "The Derby Winner," and was
produced ' by a very good company,
which Includes that funny little come
dian, Eddie Glguere, und Blanche Boye,
a sprightly soubrette.
The drama is well staged, the scenes
in the stables at the St. Louis fair
grounds and on the race track being
very realistic. Incidental to the action
of the drama many specialties are in
troduced. The dancing of a number of
colored boys provoked great applause.

board of Control Will Meet Tonight
MAKE IT OP THE NEW BOARD
Faces That Have Ueea Familiar on the
Board for Years Will Be Missed
Tonlfbt-Who the New
When the board of control adjourned
last night It was to meet for the last
time at 70 o'clock tonight when the
present body will dissolve and reor
ganisation takes place.
Just what will be done at organisa
tion in the way of electing a chairman
Is a question which no one Is In a posi
tion to question. The peculiar politi
cal condition of the board and the fact
that seven new members will take their
seats tonight makes speculation little
more than guessing and even keeps the
leaders of the opposing factions In a
The Republicans and Democrats are
Jumbled together Indiscriminately In
two factions with F. L. Wormier and
George Mitchell at the head of one and
W. J. Welsh and T. J. Jennings leading
the other. The former represents a
combine known as the "loyal 'leven."
As the matter stood last night the
opposing candidates for the chairman
ship are George Mitchell or possibly
F. S. Barker on the one side, and W. J.
Welsh on the other. Each side claims
the necessary eleven votes and to
apare. The worth of these claims will
develop tonight. No opposition is as
yet apparent to the present secretary.
On tonight's organization will depend
In a great measure the selection of a
city superintendent In the spring.

New members; Re-elected; un

The seven old members who retire
from the board tonight art C. H. von
Storoh, Second ward; James A. Evans,
Fourth ward; John P. Mahon, Sixth
ward: W. 8. Watrous, Tenth ward;
James O'Boyle, Twelfth ward; William
G. O'Malley, Twentieth ward.
In the retirement of C. H. von Storch
the board loses a good man. He is a
lawyer, and an aggressive Scrantoiitaii,
who took a great Interest In school
board work, and during his four years
of service gave many an bour of his
time to the district. Mr. von Storch
waa elected chairman of the 'board In
1894, and last year was honored with a
place on all the more important com
mittees, being chairman of the supply
committee and committee on rules.
During his Incumbency the needs of his
ward were carefully looked after, one
very tangible token of which Is the new
No. 27 building which was erected in
his ward last year.
MR. EVANS. OF THE FOURTH.
James A. Evans was always consid
ered one of tho solid members oft the
board and his opinions had great
weight with his colleagues. He suc
ceeded In ereotlng a handsome new
building, No. 19. and can retire with
the consolation that his ward is better
taken care of In the matter of schools
than probably any other ward In tne
John P. Mahon was one of the young
er element of the board, and although
having no practical knowledge of the
needs of children as regards training
and education, showed nevertheless
that he was an apt learner himself, for
his constituents accord to him the
praise of having given them an unsur
passed representation on the board.
During his Incumbency a portion of
Bellevue was unnexed to his ward, and
to provide for the new addition, he, in
conjunction with Mr. Williams, of the
Fifteenth, had the new No. 3i building
erected on Bellevue Heights. Mr. Ma
hon was a member of the finance com
mittee and the teachers' committee,
two of the most Important on the board.
A. S. Watrous ended an eight year
term last night. His distinction on the
board was his knowledge of the busi
ness of the supply committee, over
which he presided for the greater part
of his term. He was one of the best
liked members of the board, and his
fellow members express the deepest
sympathy over his loss of health, which
required his going to Denver, where
he now lies in a precarious condition.
MAN FROM THE TWELFTH.
James O'Boyle Is another young man
who had made a good record dur
ing his term. While he built no school
house, none being needed, ht Improved
the old one to such an extent that it
left no new one to be desired, and
saved the taxpayers no small sum
thereby. Mr. O'Boyle was honored with
a place on the supply. Insurance and
high and training school committees
last year and attentively looked after
the various duties these committees
imposed on him. Ha retires from the
board with the consciousness vf having
faithfully and ably represented the old
William G. O'Malley would be a capi
tal man In any deliberative or executive
body, and the district may well regret
the loss of his services. lie is master
mechanic at the South mill, and one
of the most popular men on the South
Side. If he cared to enter political life
he would, no doubt, be signally hon
ored, for he combines all the elements
that command political success. On
the school board Mr. O'Malley was
especially valuable as a member of the
building committee, where his knowl
edge of machinery, plumbing and the
like came In to great advantage. This
Is no small matter when the number
of heating and ventilating plants,
which have been constructed In build
ings during his term, Is taken into con
sideration. THE NEW MEMBERS. .
A.Ij. Francois, the new member from
the Second, Is one of the city's repre
sentative business men. He is a mem
ber of the firm of Bell A Francois,
wholesale meat dealers, having houses
In this city and Carbondale.' He Is
45 years of age, and has been In busi
ness here for twenty-five years.
Benson Davis, one ot the three Dem
ocrats, who, within the memory of the
oldest inhabitant, has succeeded in
carrying the Fourth, is a Delaware,
Lackawanna and Western master car
penter, a good, solid citizen, and a
man that can be relied upon to think
John Casey, is proprietor of the St.
Nicholas, and both In and out of his
business circle Is a popular young man.
He is one of those kind of men who be
lieve In doing things well and It can
be looked for that Mr. Casey will be one
of the most active members the board.
Jacob Schaeffer, who comes from the
Tenth. Is 45 years of age, and Is em
ployed as foreman of the Lackawanna
Iron and Steel company's carpenter
shop. He Is another of those substan
tial men who should be welcomed Into
the city's governing bodies, and who
can always be relied upon to look out
Vfor the city's Interests more than their
darn. He represented the Tenth ward
In'tcouncUa eight or ten years ago, and ,
made a good record, which he can be
expected to duplicate or surpass on the
board of control.
WILL BE A WORKER.
Anthony Walsh, who takes the next
turn at representing the Twelfth is iifi
years of age and un employe of the low
er mllL The fact that he comes from
the Twelfth bespeaks that he will be
found among the workers on the board.
His ability as a worker was Instanced
In the election In which he defeated his
popular opponent by thirty-four votes,
although he ran on nomination papers.
Patrick Langan, who succeeds the
late lamented Thomas Coar from the
Eighteenth, was elected without opposi
tion, although he had to beat a hard
man, M. M. Ruddy, in the primaries.
Mr. Langan Is twenty-six years of age
and a native of the ward he represents.
Despite his years he holds an Important
position under the Delaware, Lacka
wanna and Western company. In which
line he has few superiors, It is said,
among the older heads. Mr. Langan is
a cousin of T. J. Jennings, the Demo
cratic leader of the board.
Of John Gibbons, who comes back to
school board where he did such yeoman
service when the district was fast as
suming shupe, little need be said and no
Introduction Is necessary us he is oneot
the best known men In Scranton toduy.
LAST BUSINESS MEETING.
Board of Control Uolds a Short Session
und Pays Bills.
The school controllers had but little
old business to transact last night, and
being the last session, it was no time
for the Introduction of new business,
so very little was dune outside of the
payment of the ordinary bills.
The pay roll or officers amounted to
$450 and was approved for that amount.
The Hat of delinquent tax collectors,
printed in The Tribune Saturday, was
presented and approved. Kate O'Boyle
was appointed Janltress of No. i school
vice Mary O'Boyle. deceased.
Air. Notz wanted to take the con
sideration of the bids for heating and
ventilating No. 10 building out of the
hands of the building committee and
decide forthwith upon who was to get
the contract. Air. Welsh entered a vig
orous protest against this, saying that
he had assured the four bidders that
nothing would be done In the matter
until after reorganization. On an aye
and nay vote Mr. Notz's motion was
killed, the vote being 9 to 5.
a communication regarding the res
Istry of school children who have been
vaccinated was received from the board
of health and referred to the teachers'
Was Heard at Frothlngham for First
Time as a Cnnetrt Singer.
Aliss Anna Ida Koch's debut on the
concert stage at the Frothlngham last
night was a most flattering success and
presages a promising future for the
gifted young woman. She was former
ly a resident of this city, and Is the
daughter of Louis Koch and a niece of
victor Koch, of the Scranton house,
When a resident of this city Miss Koch
was a member of the choir of the ?ec
ond Presbyterian church, and was
famed locally for the sweetness and
power of her voice.
For several years Mlsss Koch has
studied tinder the best Instructors In
New York and the good results from
her arduous duty were apparent last
night when she sang her llrst number
It was Meyerbeera "Roberto O tu Cho
Adoro, an ambitious selection, which
it would possibly have been better for
Miss Koch to have reserved for luter
in the evening. At first there was a
trace of agitation in her voice and man
ner, but before the selection was tin
Ished she was completely master o ier
self, and the splendid qualities of her
fine soprano voice were critically noted
by the audience. It is or great sweet
ness. range and power. Miss Koch has
a graceful carriage, fins stage appear
ance, and sings with a naturalness and
ease, that Is seldom observed among
concert soloists, rne otner selections
In which she was heard last night were
Georgia's "Nevada Star," "O Sonnen
sheln," Grmun, by Schumann, and "A
Child's Lament," by Nevln. The singer
was accorded hearty applause after
She waa assisted In the concert by
Miss Ethel D. Houston, contralto; W.
Otto Polemaun, tenor: Edward 8. Roe,
basso: Thomas E. Perkins, pianist, and
Miss Marlon Short, elocutionist. They
are all artists of more than ordinary
ability, and combined gave a concert
that has not been surpassed In this
city In years.
Miss Short's recitations were raptur
ously applauded. She Is an exception
ally gifted young woman in thai line,
Besides the solos Miss Koch sang a
duett with Mr. Polemaun and with Alias
Houston, Mr. Polemaun and Air. Roe,
made up a quartette.

THE FUST REMONSTRANCE
Piled Against Granting a License to
REASONS THAT ARE ADVANCED
It Is Contended That the Placo Is Not
Necessary and Is Near a House
of Worship-Was kefused
The first remonstrance against an ap
plicant for a liquor license was the one
tiled yesterday in the olllce of Clerk of
the Courts Thomas npalnst the petition
of Lena, wife of William Decklenlck,
for a hotel license at the corner of
South Atnln avenue and Luzerne street
In the Fifth ward.
The remonstrance comes from the
pastor and parishioners of St. John's
German Cutlmlle church, which Is situ
ated across the street from Decklenlek's
pluce. This stand wus opened for the
first time la April, 1SK4. Then there was
a hard protest from Kt. John's congre
gation. After selling one year Deckle
nick was refused a license In March.
195. on the ground that he sold liquor
on election duy.
The reasons outlined In the remon
strance now tiled uguinst him are sub
stantially as follows: That the place Is
not necessary for the accommodation
of the public and of struugers and
travelers; that It Is distant from St.
John's church only 70 feet, and if li
cenced would become u great nuisance
and source of discomfort to the congre
gation; that In conjunction with the
church there Is conducted u school, at
tended dully by about Via pupils of both
sexes, ranging In age from six to
twelve years, and the hotel would be a
menace to the welfare of. these pupils
and would work Incalculable Injury to
the morula and habits of children of
such tender years; and that the place
is within 100 feet of the Sisters' house
and directly across the road from the
garden where the SlBters must take
their exercise and recreation; and that
the granting of a license as requested
would subject the Sisters to great an
noyance and would materially affect
Rev. John J. Frleker, pastor of St.
John's church. Is the first Blgner, nnd
after him came the names of eighty
two members of the parish. Attorney
Walter ilrlirgs represents the remon
strants. TALK TO ODD FELLOWS.
