SCRANTON BUSINESS COLLEGE.
Demand Always Greater Than the
Professors Buck & Whltmore this
week received the following letter fiom
a Dayton, O., Manufacturing com
pany. This company has a capital
stock of five million dollars:
Gentlemen: The demand for good
etenogrnphors and ofllce people, In our
establishment, has always been greater
than the supply. We havo openings
now for two or three good malo sten
ographers who have had experience,
and It occurred to us that a largo num
ber of stenographer and other office
men- who havo graduated from your
school from time to time and mo now
holding posltons might dealt o to better
themselves. If yen can put us In com
munication wlt'h some of your old grad.
nates who have had two or tliife years
experience we would be under obliga
tions to you.
of millinery at 8. C, Ward's, 110 Wash
Ington avenue, on Wednesday and
Thursday, Miss Ward gives her py
trons the advantage of a month's stay
In New York. Of course, this Is foreign,
to the public, as the milliners" ot this
town only make a stay of three days in
the city. We feel that the people of
Scranton cannot fall to appreciate her
efforts, both In millinery and dies?
making. All students or fashion will
t welcomed, and any help which we
can give the milliners or dressmakers
of this town will be gladly given.
Drowsiness is dispelled by Bcecham's
tConeludtil from I'Uftc 1.1
to be applied In the case ot contract
miners and their laborers and that
many of them believe the provision
about the reduction of powder llgurlng
In the Increase In wages will offset the
Increase to some miners.
"That's nttotlicr bugaboo," snld the
operator. "The offer says that the
mine employes nrc to receive a ten lir
cent, net Increase in wages, and that n
what the offer moans nothing more,
nothing loss. When n miner gets hla
money from the pay cor he will have
ten per cent. In cash more than he
would have had under the old scale.
The powder Question only enters into
it as a matter ot book-keeping. Kvcry
man employed In or about the mines
in the whole anthracite region will
make ten per cent, more under the
new scale than It he was working under
the old scale. The price of powder Is
a Action and has always been a fiction.
It Is simply for the looks of the thing
that the proviso about reducing the
price of powder was Inserted in the of
fer. Practically It makes no difference
in the long run, except that the opera
tor must do some figuring to find out
In each man's case what percentage
of the cost of mining the cost of his
powder amounts to. Let no one do any
worrying about the terms of the offer.
If the offer Is accepted the men will
find that every one of them will take
home next pay day $1.10 for every dol
lar's worth ot work lie formerly did."
This explanation ot the ten per cent,
offer was, In substance, laid before
a group of strikers at District head
quarters yestcrduy afternoon, and,
judging from their expressions, every
one of them hnd bean laboring under
the delusion that either the miner or
laborer, or may be both, were not to
get a full ten per cent, increase, and
they seemed much relieved to learn
that no matter how the figuring was
done, they were assured ot a ten cent
raise on the dollar.
One of them, the president of a local
"I don't think the men understand
this thing, or they would b talking
different to what they niv. They seem
to think there is some kind of a game
In that thing about the powder that
Is going to keep thorn from making the
ten per cent. For my rurt, I am satis
fied to stay out till we get a better
offer, but there's a good many of us
that are not prepared to make a long
fight, and on their account I am will
ing to content myself with what we
can get now. Ten per cent., anyhow,
isn't so bad."
There wnsn't a man In the room but
what seconded these sentiments with
some expression or other.
How far such sentiments extend is
the question on which the convention's
action hinges. Will the men be con
tent to take a ten per cent. Increase
in wages and the guarantee of having
their other grievances taken up for
adjustment, or will they vote to con
tinue the strike, believing the opera
tors, having made one concession, can
be forced to make more?

SERIOUS AFFRAY AT PITTSTON.
Man and Wifo Wounded and Wilt
A double tragedy occurred In Cork
lane, PlttHton, last night, and by the
time this paper renches Tilbunc read
ers It most probably Iibb reisolvcd Itself
Into a double murder. At 0 o'clock last
evening Snmuel Carrie, or Sulvntor
Carecla, according to the Italian pro
nunciation, and his wife, Angellne,
residents of Plttston, were shot and
ffabbod by Louis and Frank Trew, the
cousins of Mis. Carrie. Both men havo
escaped and all search so far has been
The affray was the result of a game
of cards, In which the brothers were
the losers. Louis and Frank Trew
boarded with their cousin, and aftor
: why Mckinley should be re-elected.
G. W. Jenkins, one of the most prominent residents of West
Soranton, where he has been for years engaged in business, gave the
following reasons yesterday why President McKinley should be re
"Because his election is necessary for the welfare of the nation.
He stands for sound money. If Mr. Bryan was eloctod all banks
having loans to merchants, house ownors, builders and others, would
want their money and want it in gold. WhyP Because the debt was
contracted on those terms. Mr. Bryan's election would moan a settle
ment on a silver basis, and bb silver is worth less than half the value
of gold, they would lose at least SO per cent. The banks are bound
to protect their depositors and everybody would be pushed. This
would apply to the mechanic as well as the merchant; it would apply
to everybody who does a credit business.
"This is the present condition of affairs, and why President
McKinley should be elected. His election means prosperity, while
the election of Bryan means free silver, bankruptcy and ruin.
"The cry of imperialism is used to covor up the true issue,
free silver. If President McKinley is an imperialist, so was Wash
ington, Jefferson and Jackson, for they all trod the same path that
President McKinley is now following. Better let well enough
supper last evening sat down to a game
of euchre at the house of a neighbor,
Vlseuela Inceta. A quarrel followed,
which resulted In the shooting and
Dr. Barrett, or Plttston, was sum
moned and pronounced both man and
wife to be in a most serious condition.

A large number of undertakers from
Lackawanna, Luzerne and Wyoming
counties assembled at the Lackawanna
A'ailey House yesterday and held their
bl-enniul convention. Two sessions
were held, from 10 o'clock to 12 o'clock
In the morning, and 2 to 4 o'clock in
President A. E. Williams, ot Ply
mouth, called the meeting to order,
with nbout twenty members present.
An amount of routine business was
transacted and a very Interesting paper
on "Embalming" was read by Albert
E. Miller, of Kingston.
A lively discussion followed on the
subject of embalming, and Mrs. High
land and an embalmer, representing an
embalming fluid company ot Spring

The next meeeting will bo held In

Vardon Is a modest-looking indi
vidual with a eounUnance less weather-beaten
than many other well known
golfers. He wore a resplendent waist
coat yesterday, elaborately done In
cross stitch and completed by red satin
sleeves and back. Ills knickerbockers
had seen much service and he wore
green golf stockings and low shoes.
His playing is devoid of mannerisms
and he plays a swift, rather than a
deliberate game. With his manager,
C. S. Cox, he left last night for New
York. On December 13 he sails for
He has won 200 matches In the past
year and makes a fine Income from
his exhibition games alone. This may
be surmised from the fuct that the
Country club paid hint $250 for yes
terday's exhibition. He spoke In most
complimentary terms ot the Country
Verily the weather man smiled on
the anxious Country clublte yester
day, for a more perfect day could not
havo been devised for the great exhi
bition match. The rain of the previous
hours had been a benediction for the
links, and the clear, cool atmosphere
brought the blue mountains so re
cently veiled In haze, very close to
tlio beautiful stretch of hillside and
DEEP INTEREST SHOWN.
The match was followed with the
deepest Interest by a largo gathering,
In which ladles predominated In thu
morning. Out-of-town visitors and
many prominent residents of Scranton
augmented the throng In the after
noon. The playing all day was devoid of
exciting Incidents. Vardon plays too
magnificently a steady game to pio
dure any brilliantly startling effects,
At the eighth hole.yesterday morning,
ho found his ball, after a long drive,
rather badly caught In rough grass,
far to the tuft side. He played through
the trees and Into the hole. At the
eighteenth hole In the afternoon he
made a drive of S60 yards, clearing the
bunker, When he got the ball he found
he was stymied and hadisito curve It
around a tree, lie took out his mashle
and In a most beautiful manner Knt
the ball to the punting ground. It was
the most difficult play or the day,
It was a nlost creditable showing
that was made by the Scranton men,
and it may be Interesting to note that
Vnudon played as heavily handl
cupped not. long since against Doug
las and Tunis, the famous amateur
champions and won by 8 up and 0
The club house presented a cheerful
appearance yesterday. A big wood
