Colonel James Falrman, of Scranton,

trayed at Chicago and propose to resent

'.Lart night two Important meetings of
Christian Endeavor committees were
held and transacted business relntlve
to the approaching state convention to
be held here Oct. 6, 7 and 8. The com
mittee of '6, the main executive body,
met In the Young1 Men's Christian as
sociation building, and the reception
committee, which has over 200 mem
bers, met in the lecture room of the
First Presbyterian church.
Other cities have been lavish In their
decorations during the convention
periods, nnd, that Scranton may be
equally emphatic In Its welcome of
bunting, the Committee of '90 decided
to Issue a public request for generous
decorating. The following open letter
on the matter was approved:
Scranton, Pa., Sept. 17, 18M.
To the Ruslness Men und Citizens of

Young People's Society of Christian En
deavor will be held In Scranton on Tues
day. Wednesday und Thursday, Oct. ti, 7
ami 8. It will brin to the city at least
4.0UO visitors. While it will be primarily
a religious gathering, still the effect of
such u lurse number of delegates In (ho
city will be felt in business circles. Scrun
ton's welcome should be commensurate
with the magnitude of the convention.
The committee of "W, the executive com
mittee of arrangements, therefore requests
that business men fittingly decorate their
stores, nnd citizens their homes, to give
expression to a cordial welcome to all del
egates. The convention colors are to bo
red and white, anil there is ulso a special
ly designed flag. Hoping that there will
be tt generous response to this request for
decorating the city, we are, for the com

DETERMINED AIR OF
His Opinio Qlves an Inkling of the
Turnpike Company's Stand.
THEY ARE EVIDENTLY IN EARNEST
Willing; to Have a a Amicable Action
at Court, bat Repairs to the Road
IMust Go oa Undisturbed in the
Menntinic-F.xccrpt from the Opin
ion I'ndrr Which the Company Is
flaking Its Fisht.
When the attorneys for city and the
Providence and Ablngton Turnpike
company met In Alderman Millar's of
fice yesterday morning' to war over the
arrest of President H. E. Paine and
his gang of workmen on the previous
day, tt was mutually agreed that the
prosecution should be indefinitely post
poned and that the differences between
the city nnd tho company should be
submitted to court in the form of a
S. 13. Price, the city's attorney, also
agreed to advise Mr. Kinsley not to
further Interfere with the company's
workmen, feeling satisfied that the city
will win In the long- run, and the com
pany will not be able to collect the
cost of the repairs from the city.
Mr. Watson, attorney for the com
pany, said he could not do otherwise
than direct his clients to continue the
work of repair. In an opinion on this
point submitted to the directors on
Sept. 8, he said, after reciting the law
on the case which holds the company
privately responsible for the condition
of the road:
MR. WATSON'S OPINION.
What shall this company do? As I hnve
shown the ollleers or tne company are lia
ble to bo arrested and Indicted. The only
stranne thine to mo is that we are not all
of us arrested and under Indictment. Per
haps It Is because the traveling public do
not know the law. That wo are liable to
Indictment nnd have been for weeks and.
Indeed, for months Is beyond question, and
If 1 were not & member of the company
and was compelled to travel over this
turnpike nnd pay tolls 1 would have the
ollleers of the company Indicted at the
next court of Quarter session and I would
proceed against the company nnd recover
every pennlty provided by statute and thua
compel this company to provide a suita
ble roadbed, u good road, one that would
accommodate the traveling public and
comply with the Act of Assembly.
Of course, It Is tho duty of the city to
put the roud In such repuir, but the Pity,
as I have said, refuses or neglects to do t
nnd It is therefore the bounden duty of
this company to proceed at once to repair
that portion of Its rond.
The fact thnt certain officials of the
city threatened to arrest or enjoin the of
ficers of this company If they go upon
that portion of Its rond to repair the samo
Is of no earthly account. It does not re
lease this company of Its duty In any re
spect whatsoever nor does the fact that
the street commissioner has gone upon
that part of the road and shovelled the
rubbish out of the ditches und has levelled
down the ridge that the city made In the
road while constructing a Bfwer therein
make any difference In this regard. Nor is
the company released, of Its obligation if
there nre some places In the road above
tho bridge, not In proper condition.
CITY HAS DONE NOTHING.
The city has done nothing, absolutely
nothing, toward repairing this road. It
has not fulfilled Its agreement to keep this
road In repair any more than If It had
never done anything upon it.
It is, tlaVefore, my direction, so far os
I am authorized by tho company, to di
rect that the president of this company
proceed without further delay to repair
that part of the turnpike from Leggett's
creek bridge to Mulley's Corners, and thnt
such repairs commence nt Leggett's creek
bridge nnd be continued down the line of
the road. That coarse stones, so far ns Is
necessary, be broken Into the shallow
places or hollows until the road shall be
of the level provided by the Act of Assem
bly and that crushed stones then be
placed upon the surface of tlm road until
It shall be macadamized and In good con
dition ns provided by law and by resolu
tion of this company.
That the president of the company or
some person authorized by him keep an
exact and correct account of the time of
the employes working upon the road and
of nil the expense incurred In repairing the
samo and that a sworn statement of the
money so expended be rrade.j 1 to the
city clerk each month and payment of
the same be demanded of the city, and
that If the city refuses or neglects to pay
the same that suit be instituted and the
moneys so expended recovered from the
1 will only add that. In my judgment. If
the present board of managers of the
Providence and Ablngton Turnpike and
Plank Roud company tins not the courage
to do Its duty In this regard ami carry out
the plan herein suggested the board had
better resign nt once and permit the stock
holders of the company to elect a board
that will do Its duty under the law nnd tho
decisions of the courts. All of which is
Mr. Watson also directed a letter to
Mr. Paine defining his duties In the
premises and telling him he should not
be swerved from his duty by the inter
ference of any of the city officials.
Mr. Paine and his workmen recom
menced operations yesterday afternoon.
Instead of simply grading: and levelling1
the road they are building a solid and
substantial macadam roadbed and In
case the city should come out second
best in the litigation now on, it will
have a bill of repairs of very robust di
mensions to meet.
Ceremony Performed in the Chase
Residence on t'lny Avenue.
The wedding of two of the city's
prominent personnges, Mrs. Josephine
C. Koons and John T. Richards, took
place last night at the home of th-
former's brother, E. E. Chase, on Clay
avenue. It was a very quiet affair. No form
al announcement of the event had been
made, and It wns attended by only
the Immediate relatives. Mr. Richards
and his wife left Scranton early this
morning and will Ball for Europe to
morrow. Rev. Dr. James McLeod, of the First
Presbyterian church, was the officiat
ing clergyman. There was no formal

o'clock a collation was served.
Mr. and Mrs, Richards left here for
New York city at 1.40 o'clock this morn
ing via the Lackawanna road. They
will sail in the Umbrla tomorrow
morning, and will be in Europe for
about two months.
The brido Is a member of the city's
most prominent social element. Her
splendid executive qualities have
caused her to be identified with the
management of many semi-public af
fairs In the First Presbyterian church,
of which she is a member, and in other
interests. Few women, her acquaint
ances say, could be possessed ' of a
cheerier manner or affability and tact
than she. These qualities have won
for her a large and loyal circle of
Mr. Richards Is reputed to be the
wealthiest of Scranton's younger and
self-made business men. He Is an un
defatlgable worker, and to this energy
and his aptitude for handling exten
sive schemes of finance and business
may be attributed his unusual success.
He Is an ex-cashler of the Merchants'
and Mechanics' bank, one of the exaeu-
tors of the large Handley estate, and
has extensive real estate and coal In
terests. Ho goes to Europe with the
other executors of the estate to Investi
