POLICE FORCE BAXQIETEP.
r.x-Moyor Conncll Gives a Dinner to tho
officers at the Scninton House.
Ex-Mayor Conncll banqueted the po
lice force at the Scranton house last
evening at G.:!0 o'clock. Every officer
on the force, forty in all, was present
and the occasion was In this respect
remarkable aa it is the first time In
the history of the city that there haB
been a gathering where every member
of the force was in attendance.
Mayor i'.ailey was invited to be pres
ent, but being unable to attend, he sent
as his representative his warm friend,
A. P. Hedford. Mark K. Edgar. John
Marshall, Janitor of the city hall, and
the newspaper representatives were the
only other civilians present. All the
ollicers were In parade dress and the
picture they presented about the table
was picturesque in the extreme. The
menu was excellent and to say that
those half hundred, healthy blue coats
did full justice to it is not half telling
After cigars had been passed around
Mayor Council announced that he was
going to give them as big a surprise as
they gave him last Saturday. Then
when everybody was waiting with
bated breath for the big surprise he
announced, "I will refrain from making
a speech." When the laughter had
subsided he Introduced Mr. Bedford,
who conveyed Mayor llailey's regrets
at not being able to attend and his
kindest regards to Mr. Conncll and the
force. Stories and reminiscences then
followed In rapid succession, Mr. Bed
ford starting the ball with a couple of
bis best and being followed by Chief
Simpson, Patrolmen Feeney, Flaherty,
John Thomas, Captain Iiurke and Ser
geant Delter. Martin Gurrell. the vet
eran of the force. Lieutenants Davis.
Spellman, Williams and Zang were
called upon for remarks.
At the conclusion of the dinner Mayor
Conncll bade a formal farewell to the
force. In the course of his remarks
he paid a, high compliment to the body
and to the ollicers as Individuals. Ho
asked them to remember him as W.
L. Conncll, the man and not the mayor,
and assured them that If ever they
needed a friend and he was In a way to
befriend them, they need not hesitate
to command his ollices.
After a general handshaking the of
ficers filled out and repaired to head
quarters, where they dispersed. During
tho time that the dinner was in pro
gress the city was policed by constables
und special ollicers. 1
NORTH END TIRES.
Olio of Them Was Almost Attended with
Loss of Life.
The North End was visited by two
fires yesterday, and one of them was
almost attended with loss of life. It
broke out at 3.14 In the afternoon In
the store of John Hawks on the Prov
idence road. The Humes orlginhted in
some unaccountable manner in the
stairway and had secured considerable
headway before being discovered. Mrs.
Hawks nnd one of the children was up
stairs and volumes of smoke burst in
upon them, blinding them. They had
great trouble in finding another exit
leading from the rear of the house.
The fire companies of the North End
responded and got the flames under
control before much damage was done.
The loss will not be above $300.
At 9 o'clock In the morning fire broke
out in the same neighborhood, in the
house of Michael Madden, who keeps
a tea store. The building was a frame
one two stories high, and was partial
ly destroyed. The loss will amount to
KiOO, which Is offset by sufllcient In
surance to indemnify him. The lire or
iginated from a defective flue.

South Side Street Car-Balls
Held Last Night.
Four people boarded Conductor Da

day afternoon. One of them was a
woman, and she was not under the In
lluence of liquor, but the three men
were. The noisiest one was her hus
band, and his profanity was such that
the conductor put him oft at Cedar
avenue. Another one of the crowd at
tempted to Interfere and he met with
the same treatment.
The woman then took a hand In the
trouble and was more difficult to con
trol than the men combined. She made
savage attacks with her fists upon

COL COIRSEX DISAPPROVES.
Exception Taken to tho Prescribed
I Heport of Notional Guard Ratings To
Continuo the Old Klflo Rango.
The ratings of the regiments and
other Pennsylvania national guard or
ganizations as furnished in the report
of the adjutant general came up for a
severe round of criticism at last night's
quarterly meeting of the board of of
llcers of the Thirteenth regiment, of
this city. The report as published
rates the First regiment, of Philadel
phia, ns the leading regiment In tho
state and Company D of the Thirteenth
as the leading company.
The Thirteenth's officers say the rat
ings as published contain some glaring
errors which reflect to the discredit of
the Scranton organization, and after
an hour of inquiry and discussion Col.
Coursen announced his puropse of
writing General Stewart and request
ing him to issue at once an order of
correction. The ratings as published
give Company , Thirteenth regiment,
an efficiency of !).".T"; First troop and
Company K, First regiment, of Phila
delphia, 94.71: Compnny A, Thirteenth
regiment, 91.49, and Company G, Thir
teenth regiment, S2.8H. It is claimed
Company A's rating should be 9B.49 and
Company O's 92.86. This would place
Company A first in the state. Com
pany D second and the First troop and
Company E. of the First regiment, a
tie for third; would give the Thirteenth
regiment a general average of 94.06 In
stead of 92.84, the general average
given by the effective rating, and
would make the Thirteenth the leading
regiment in the state. The First regi
ment now is accredited with 93.110 and
the leading position.
The ratings are made by averaging
the camp inspection, target practice
and spring lnspectloln figures of 'the
Last night's meeting also considered
the proposition of F. M. Soencer to
locate the rllle range Jointly with a pro
posed Scranton rifle club on the Spen
cer mine property in Dunmore. A
change from the present location at
Dickson had been contemplated be
cause of the encroachment of a culm
bank which hides the long range tar
gets. It was decided to continue the
present range by moving the long
range firing points to a position against
the hill on the east side of the river.

NEW TROTTING CIRCUIT
Representatives of Six Cities to
Meet Here Tomorrow.
DRIVING PARK'S XEW PLANS
Will Be Made a lay ami Night Pleasure
UroDud of tho Metropolitan
kind-Proposed Chance la
Representatives of the Driving Park
associations of Bethlehem, Trenton,
Allentown, Waverly, Jf. J., Blngham
ton and Scranton. will meet at the
Wyoming house tomorrow to elect offi
cers and transact other business rela
tive to forming a permanent trotting
circuit among the cities named.
Following the Fleetwood race In
June there will be trotting meets in
Bethlehem, Scranton and Blnghomton
In the order named. In Scranton, the
meet will be during the last week In
June. In these three cities and Tren
ton, Allentown and Waverly there will
be fall meets. The fail races In this
city will be during the first week in
tin connection with thin plan Is anoth
er scheme In which the owners of the
Scranton Driving park are individual
ly interested. They propose making
the park a local pleasure ground, and
are now making elaborate arrange
ments to that end.
Tho trotting circuit idea Is not new
nor was it wholly through the wishes
of the Driving Park owners that this
city was Included In the circuit. The
owners were willing and anxious to
combine in a circuit with the other
cities mentioned but first tested the
feelings of turfmen In this city and
vicinity. It was found that the latter
were more than favorably impressed
with the plan and would patronize it
not only by their approval but would
guarantee many entries. Such favor
able sentiment caused the owners sev
eral months ago to notify the officers
of associations in the other cities that
Scranton would be one of the circuit.
THIS CITY WAS FAVORED.
How Scranton stands In the deal is
shown In the fact that this city was
chosen for the general meeting In the
Wyoming house tomorrow.
The plan for making the Driving park
a day and night pleasure ground will
Interest the general public rather than
horsemen. It Is proposed to build a
dam In the Lackawanna river, near
the bridge, and In the lake thus formed
there will be created an island nearly
a quarter-mile In length along&lde the
eastern limits of the park. The island
will be used as a picnic ground and
boats will be placed on the lake.
A circular bicycle track will be made
by using a portion of the present home
and back-stretches and a portion of the
field will be leveled and equipped for
trap and target shooting. In whole,
the property will be turned Into a well
polloed and fully equipped day and
night pleasure-ground of the metropol
OPEX AIR ATTRACTIONS.
Arrangements are now practically
completed with a New York city pro
ducer of spectaculars for presenting an
open-air attraction by 100 performers
for ten days during July or August.
Whatever attraction of this kind Is de
cided upon, the performoVs will all be
Imported and there will be none of the
rawness so apparent In past produc
tions of tho kind, where the supernum
eraries have been from this city.
The pleasure resort plan is so ma
tured that within a few weeks work will
bo started on the dam Negotiations
hove already been opened with eon
tractors preparatory to receiving bids
for doing the work In the park proper.
Arrageinents are pending with the
Scranton Traction company for extend
ing the tracks of the Green Ridge
People's line over the river and past
Koch's hotel to the southwest corner
of the park near the grand stand.
