suggestions Is that the men employed
by the larger companies arrange to

than that each colliery should send a

Champion ItcivywelRht Pugilist of
the World .lames J. Jeffries was seen
at his drcssiiiK room in the Lyceum
theater last nlRht by a Tribune man
und expressed himself! freely regarding
his present attitude toward the other
big fellows. Jeffries was interviewed
as ho sat in front of a big mirror,
"making up" for the leading role in
"The Jlan from the West," In which
lit is the bright particular star. He
was In a talkative mood and seemed
perfectly content with life behind the
"Say," lie said, modestly, "do you
know I am surprising every one with
my acting? Nobody thought I'd be
any good at all for this kind of work.
The show's all right, too, I'm tolling
you. It's as good a show as any man
has on the road, and I'vn got the
leading role, all right. AVhy, say, it
isn't a show like some fighters have
gui wnere iney naven't nanny any
work to do, but they have got me lath
ing all the time in it."
Here the champion rubbed a handful
of red paint on his right cheek and
then proceeded to distribute it over
the large amount of territory on that
side of his head. Ills countenance be
gan speedily to assume the hue ot
that of an Indian fighter and here The
Tribune man backed to the door, got
his 'hand on the knob and nervously
mentioned the name of Corbett and
his evident anxiety to get a match
"Corbett!" growled the champion;
"what right has he to ask me for a
light? He's been licked by every one
in the country. Why it's out of the
question for me to light either him or
Sharkey." He hero scattered some
more flame-colored paint over his
rather classic lineaments and contin
ued, reflectively and bashfully: "Shar
key's a changed man since I fought
him. He hasn't lecovered from those
body blows I gave him and I think
he never will. He's a total wreck."
"And Fitz.simmons?" suggested the
"Ah," said Jeffries, bis face lighting
up with an honest glow, "there's a dif
ferent question. I'm ready to meet
Fitz at any time. Why .I'd give .$1,000
to the man who got me a match with
i. ... ......I ... ,. ,. . .. .. ..
mc 'vuniMiii.iii. ijc is unuouoieuiy a
great lighter. His showing against
minim was a grand one."
"How about Uuhlin?" was the next
question asked, and Jelfries, as he
picked up a pencil and caiefully bladk
ened his eyehrnu.s and drew wonderful
rings around Ills orbs, said: "ltuhlin's
fill right. It' Icitz won't right I'd be
glad to take on Uuhlin. He's way
ahead of either Sharkey or Corbett.
And as for Kid McCoy." he burst out
as the ringside Chesterfield's, name
was mentioned, "why he's in the same
class with Corbett, entirely out of tho

King William, Old Mull Blend.
f John D. Francis, a miner of Taylor, who is well-known to the
mine workeis of the region, gives the following reasons why he be-
T lieves McKinlcy should be re-elected:
. "I favor the election of William McKinley because In every emer-
-f geucy he has measured up to the occasion and demonstrated that he
is a statesman and a diplomat that all true Americans who recognize
but one flag and one country should be proud of.
T "I do not care to change my ideas fast enough to keep pace with
Mr. Bryan's policies as they appear to be as changeable as the value
"I believe that capital should have a fair return on the invest
ment because it creates a demand for capital and that creates a de
mand for labor. If our employers are prosperous we who have noth
ing but our labor to sell, can be prosperous, if we are industrious and
willing to take advantage of our opportunities.
"We all know that a financial crisis hits labor first and hardest.
The capitalist sees it coming and begins to -withdraw his capital
and saves something from the wreck, but the laborer having noth
ing but his labor goes hungry. The clap trap that all men who employ
labor are its oppressors is false, as we know most of the men in this
country who employ labor, are men who have risen from the ranks and
have some regard for the Golden Rule.
. "We have had promises before from the Democratic party, but
.f they have never been fulfilled. They are like Bryan's prophecies of
four years ago, very catchy in theory, but all wrong in practice.
"" Consequently I think it my duty to vote for a tried man with tried
T policies rather than an experiment with no policies. And while we
are along this line it is important that we vote right ior congress,
so that we may have men who favor the platform and will help re-
deem the promises of the Republican party."

gentlemen renuiKcd that if it had not been for
the pirt taken by Mr, Conncll is cffoUing a

and that it was just that he be ghen pioper

pntioular part Mr. Council bad plajed in this
matter, which was of such vital inteiesl to th"
mine woikeis and tho industrial conditions of
tho Laikawnun.i willcy.
One of those present explained the nutter in
the following statement:

Not that the authenticity of the
above can be questioned, but that it
might be corroborated by the hlaliest
olllelul of the 'United Mine Workers in
this district. The Tribune last nlsht
placed the Truth article befote Dlstilct
President T. D. Nlcholls, at his homo In
Nantleoke, with a request for a state
ment. Mr. Nlcholls said:
"I heard that story before leaving
Scranton. It Is not true. What ap
pears In the Tiuth us coming from
a United Mine Wnrktr is correct.
While wo were at lha Hastleton con
ference we were all In doubt ns to
the terms or tho ten per cent, offer.
Mr. Conncll offered to represent us
hi tlva matter and acted as a sort of
stomach, and spent many weary days
and nights in pursuit of relief.
During Wednesday night she was
very restless and her daughter Annie
suffered from an attack of neuralgia
in the face. They comforted each
other during the long hours of the
night, and shortly after 6 o'clock yes
terday morning the mother prevailed
upon the daughter to seek repose.
When the girl was fast asleep, the
mother formed the plan to end her
Procuring a strip of bedtioking, she
toio it into several pieces and made
a rope of It. One end was securely
fnstenened to a hook over the bed
loom door, and the other was formed
into a noose. Mrs. Jarvls stood on a
chair, adjusted her neck, and kicked
the chair from under her.
With a dull, crashing noise and a
shriek of pain, the woman snnlc al
most to the floor, her feet barely touch
ing the door sill. The noise awakened
the daughter, who Instantly sprang-
from her bed, and taking in the situa
tion at a glance, cut the rope and re
leased her mother fiom her perilous
A spai k of life yet' remained, and the
woman was placed on the bed and sev
eral of the neighbors summoned, but
before a physician reached the house
the life had gone out. Coroner Rob
erts was notified and later In the day
held an autopsy on the body. Death
was due to strangulation, and an In
quest' was deemed unnecessary.
Mrs, Jarvls was 49 years of age and
had been a widow fourteen years, her
husband having been killed In the
Marvlne shaft. She Is survived by
one daughter and two sons, Annie E.,
John W. and Thomas Jarvls.
The funeral services will be conduct
ed nt the house Sunday afternoon at 2
o'clock. Interment will be made In the
Washburn street cemetery.
City Solicitor Vosburg sent In the
following opinion to .select council last
night In compliance with the resolu
tion Introduced by Mr. Chittenden re
questing him to state whether or not
f.onti oiler Howell could be Impeached
for wilfully charging bills to the wrong
appropriation and making transfers
without the consent of council:
Scranton, I'a., Oct. 2.1, 1900.
To the Honoiable, the Select Council of the City
Oentlemen: Your Inquiry with respect to thi
relatlops between the councils and the city con
tioller Is an imnortant Due. ami mm iimt 'i. .i
!!lnly defined by the statutes. The Art of 1871
enumerates tho duties of the city controller,
and slates that ho Mini! manage the" fiscal affairs
of the city "In a manner icqulied by the laws
of this state, and the ordinances and resolutions
of tho city rotinclle." Thin, of course, gives
the councils supciWslon and control of the man
agement of the ofllco. The Act ot 1SK') contains
a prolslon identical with the one Just quoted,
and Ids dutlea nie set fnith in detail. The Act
of 1SS0 also provides that the councils mav fill
vacancies in tho ofllco of city controller by a
majority te in joint ciimcnllon. There Is no
proilslon In either of (hope nets for the lm.
peachmont by the councils of tho city controller.
The direction and control vested by" the legisla
ture in the city councils oier the management
of the city controller's ottlce can undoubtedly
be enfoicid by an application to the courts
for a mandamus to compel obedience to mich
ordinincrs and resolutions as may be passed
by the councils.
MANDAMUS 'Hill IlKSir.DY.
It has been held in many cases that mindimus
Is the proper lemcdy to compel the city con
troller to perfonn duties which he is required
by law to perfoim of a ministerial nature. (See
Deckel t s. Commonwealth. 113 I'a.. "?0. Com.
monwcalth s. fleorgc U8 Pa., li. Common
wealth s. Philadelphia, 17(! Pa., 5S8). Of
course, I am simply speaking in the nbslract,
as I hae no information of any failure of the
picsent city controller to perform his duties.
If the cily controller, or .my other public offi
cial, shall misbchaic himself while in oRlce, he
is subject to rcmoal under the prolsions of
the state constitution, Art. 0, Sec. 4, which
proUdes thai "All officers shall hold their olllces
on the condition tlut they behae themselves
while in office, and shall be lemoved on eon
iction of misbehavior in office, orTJf any in
"All oftlceis elected by the people, except gov
ernor, lieutenant governor, lnenibcis of the gen
eral assembly and judges of the coints of iccord,
learned in (he law, shall be removed by the
governor for reasonable cause, after due notice
and full hearing, on the address of two-thirds
of the senate."
ft will thus be seen that the state senate
acts a court for the dial of Impeachment pio
ceedings; and it has been held that "flic con
stitution has made the senate, like the house
of lords, sole judge of what the law is, assum
ing their wisdom to be equal to that of the
common law courts." (2 Hale's P. C. 2T5.)
Whether this be a violent piesumption or not,
it is undoubtedly tine that the senate is vested
with j very wide discretion in nutters of this
kind, and that theie is no appeal fiom the
ueeisinn of two-thuds of' tint body, upon whose
addicss the governor moves.
It is, theicfore, impossible In define what
"misbehavioi" in olllte would move the senate
to impeach a public olllcer. as what would be
considered an impeach iblo offense by one senate
might not bv the next.
