It will be remembered that after tho
contract bad been signed by Mayor
Italley in March, lo99, the above
mentioned persons filed a bill In equity
through Attorney Comegys attacking
it. There were two grounds taken In
this attack. One was that the city
had no right to enter Into a ten-year
contiact and the other was the alle
gation that tho contract had been
secured by tho corrupt use of money.
Tho first ground was purely and
simply a question of law, but the alle
gation of the corrupt use of money
raised an is.sue of fact, 'flip city de
murred to tho bill and when it came
up for argument it was deemed expe
dient. In older to secure a speedy de
cision, to withdraw the allegation of
fraud and leave remaining just a
question of low.
This was done and In an opinion
handed down by court, based, of
course, on the purely legal points
lalsed, it was declared that tho city
had a perfect right to enter Into a
ten-year contract and that according
ly the contract was legal.
"At the time when we withdrew the
allegation of fraud," said Mr. Come

dence on which to base such a charge.

Whether or not the operators will

President W. V. S. Thome, of the
Pennsylvania Coal company, Is cred
ited in a New York dlnpatch, with a
statement tox the effect that miners
must accept what has been offered
or nothing nt all. His company hns
not posted notices of the offer, he said,
but supposed It would fall In line If
the ntrlkets accept the offer from any
Mr. Thorne further suld: "I wlll(tell
one thing, and that Is there will be
no more concessions on our part after
tho ten per cent, offer and I doubt
If any company will go higher than
that figure. At that we will expect
tho railroads to make freight conces
sions to us -which will, In a measure
at least, make up our Iofs.
"If the strikers demand more than
thK there will be a fight, and It will
bo a fight to the finish."
No companies or Individual operators
were yesterday added to the notice
posting minority. Tho Delaware and
Hudson and Pennsylvania companies
still stand out with the Individual op
erators against figuring In the proffer.
The Tribune had nn Interview by
1nng distance 'phone, yesterday, with
E. L. Fuller, one of the individual oper
ators' committee which went to New
York to secuie belter freight rates
from the coal-earrylng presidents. Mr.
Fuller said nothing definite could be

RAID OF THB PLACES
GOES MERRILY ON
Four Moro Arrests Made and Two of
the Accused Given Hearings and
Fined by the Mayor.
"Down with the speakeasies," con
tinues to be Mayor Molr's battle cry,
and four morq arrests were yesterday
made of proprietors of Illegal liquor
establishments, and two of them were
given hearings, while the others will
be heard today.
Patrick Cawloy, of 807 Alder street,
was fined $25, as was alro Mrs. Thom
as Ralney, of 21 Archbdld street. Mrs.
George, who dwells at the corner of
Eynon street and Eighth street, iwlll
be given a hearing this morning, und
the case of an Italian speakeasy
keeper, living at SSI Mooslo street, will
also be heard.
Cawley was given a hearing during
the afternoon. When asked whether
he was guilty or not guilty, he re
plied: "Oh, I'm not guilty. I've only
sold a little corn beer nnd soft beer."
"Well, we have men here who say
different," responded the mayor, and
one of the witnesses stepping for
ward, calmly descilbed the interior of
the Cawley domicile, and after giving
a minute and detailed description of
tho place, said that he had drunk beer
"Oh," said Mr. Cawley nt this, his
backbone weakening perceptibly,
"maybe I did sell the bye some beer.
Ye don't need to call any more wit
nesses," and he then very amiably
paid his fine and the costs.
Mrs. ltainey is the wife of Thomas
Ralney, who only three weeks ago
was committed to the county jail on
his refusal to pay the fine Imposed
for keeping a speakeasy.
Two witnesses testified to drinking
beer in the place, and Mrs. Ralney
was exceedingly wroth at them, burst
ing out with the following remarks:
"Ye are only a couple of black-hearted
scoundrels and ought to be ashamed,
to try to put a poor woman In jail."
She further said, this time address
ing his honor: "If yo'll only wait a
week, till me man gets out of Jail, I'll
go up me'self."
' As the mayor was undeslrous of
waiting, however, Mrs. Ralney paid the
A peculiar thing about one of the
speakeasy keepers arrested Is that
when the constable who served the
warrant entered the place he found
an agent for a brewing company col
lecting a $150 bill, whllo In a rear room
sat seveial men drinking beer. Yet
the proprietor was exceedingly In
dignant when the warrant was served,
and loudly asserted that the estab
lishment was no speakeasy.
LECTURE ON SAVIOUR'S LIFE.
Rev. W. Robert Goss, of Jersey City,
Gave Illustrated Address.
Rev. W. Robert Goss, of Jersey City,
last night gave an Illuminated lecture
on the life of the Savior at the Scran
ton Uie.vcle club hall, under the aus
pices of the Rescue mission. The lat
ter at the conclusion of the lecture
withdrew their support. Rev. Goss will,
however, repeat the lecture tonight,
and Is confident that this time the
evening will pass without any hitch.
The dlfllculty last night was in prop
erly focusing his moving picture ap
paiatus and it was only towards the
end of the entertainment that tills was
satisfactorily adjusted. Tonight, how
ever, Rev. Goss declares that this diffi
culty will be entirely done away with.
The entertainment was of a very In
teresting nature. It dealt with the life
of the Savior, and was illustrated by
sacred pictures and with moving pic
tures of the great Oberammergau Pas
sion Play. Several scenes in the life
of Christ such ns the raising from the
dead of Lazarus, the entry Into Jerusa

fore Pilate, were very well portrayed.

ENTER THAT BRANCH.
Corporal Farrell, Who Has Charge
of the Local Recruiting Station,
Says There Scorns to Be a Very
Hazy Idea Hereabouts About the
Marine Arm of the Service He
Served In the Philippines with the
Fourteenth Infantry and Saw
Plenty of Active Service.
"Business Is looking up nt this Rta
tlon," remarked Corporal Joseph Par
rel!,, of the United States marine re
cruiting bureau yesterday, and open
ing his tecord book, he showed the
names of four recruits sent from
Scruntoti last Tuesday.
They are: Will LlewelynV Jones, of
34 South Main avenue; Frank Louis
Brink. 212 Spruce street; John Herbert
Clifford, 914 Plttston avenue; Thomas
Francis Mahon, Avoca. The first three
named were all members of the state
Corporal Farrell expects that men
will' be coming In In greater numbers
now that Captain Wolfe and his uldes,
who have been conducting a. United
States army recruiting Btatlon here,
have left town. They left for Phila
delphia Wednesday morning, nnd tho
marines have a clear field before them.
"I believe." said Corporal Farrell
yesterday, "that people around here
are pretty hazy regarding the exact
naturp of a marine's duties, and In
fnct, regarding the entire marine ser
vice'. In reality, It Is the most desir
able branch of government life. I
served In the Fourteenth regulars be
fore I joined the marines, and there
Is no comparison between the lives
ot tho soldier and the marine. The
latter's duties on ship board are sim
ply acting as escort and guard. There
Is no menial work at all, and no ma
rines are expected to know anything
about snllorlng. Then on land, there
Is a sort of garrison duty, at Wash
ington, Boston, Brooklyn, San Fran
cisco, Annapolis, Norfolk and League
island, near Philadelphia.

"The marine Is thefjest-dresscd man
wearing a uniform. The service re
quires a large number of varieties ot
dress and undress suit!', and I have
known marines who possessed wavd
lobe, the size of which would compare
favoiably with many a society lead
er's. "Withal, the corps Is by no means
made up of dandified men, and the
marines have done good service in
Cuba, the Philippines and China. Still,
we do not have to suffer anything like
tho privations the soldiers do, even
in campaign, ns we sleep on bonrd our
ships, and have rations which are
feasts for the gods compared with
what men In the regulars are some
times forced to receive.
"All the recruits enlisted here are
sent to League Island, where they
are 'drilled and whipped Into shape,
and after six months of service, they
can ask to be transferred to any
quarter where the corps Is at work."
As has been mentioned before in
these columns, Corporal Farrell has
onlv a few months worn the marine
uniform and formeily was sergeant in
the Fourteenth regulars, one of the
first regiments to see service In the

small-sized opinion of our newly-acquired
He said yesterday, regarding them:
"One phase of their character which
strongly impressed itself upon me wtw
their extreme avarlclousness and
eagerness after wealth. They were
constantly in pursuit of the great
,ptmerlcan dollar, whllo any Ameri
canos wore around, and they were
exceedingly successful In separating
the soldier from his coin. Immediate
ly on our advent In tho Islands, prices
of everything took an enormous rise,
being doubled, tripled nnd put up

"Why, one day, when we were

watched us, and when we were
thiough, picked up some sticks and
