afternoon, with blood flowing from a

she had sustained a fracture at tho

Mrs. Carden was In a stupor when
found, and continued In that htntu
throughout tho night. The supposition
is that while crossing the bridge sho

was at first thought that she was
struck by a car or run Into by a wagon,

Members of Union League Serenaded
Congressman Connell and Enter
tained Other Candidates.
That sturdy body of young Republi
cans, tho Union league, whose mem
bers did such yeomanly work during
the election, last night serenaded Con
gressman Wlllliim Connell nt his homo
on Vine street, and then gave a rous
ing reception at the Central Republi
can club heathiunrters for tho other
successful Republican candidates. Roth
parts of the programme were carried
out admirably, and George Marshall,
tho chairman in charge, felt deservedly
proud of thu results of the evening.
At 7.1." o'clock a large number of
members of the league met at the
headfiuarters and there filed into line
and, headed by Lawrence and his
band, marched to Mr. Connell's home.
The majority of the men In line wore
their now famous khaki uniforms, and
with their Rough Rider hats and
flaming flambeaux made an excellent
serenading party. They arrived at their
destination about 7.30 o'clock. There
Director Lawrence gave the signal and
the trumpets blared and tho cymbals
clashed, as the brisk, business-like
tono of one of Plnsutl's marches cleft
the air. The strains of music attracted
the residents within a radius of sev
eral blocks, who rapidly lluckcd to the
At the first burst of music, tho door
of tho home opened and Congressman
Connell made his appearance on the
porch. Loud cheers greeted him, and
as he turned to speak to Rev. Dr. C.
M. Giflin, of tho Elm Park Methodist
Episcopal church, who accompanied
him, he seemed much affected by tho
spirit which prompted tho serenade.
Tho band completed the selection,
amidst loud applause from the gath
ered crowd, and then played Plnsutl's
"Queen of tho Earth." This was fol
lowed by a medley march by AV. C.
Ott, a member of theAband, and tho
leaguers and musicians then proceeded
to the headquarters.
Here stirring after-election speeches
wore delivered by the re-elected repre
sentative of the Second Legislative dis
trict, John J. Kchouor, jr.. Recorder of
Deeds-elect Emll Bonn, Attorney James
E. Watklns, of Taylor, and others. The
clerk of the courts, Thomas P. Daniels,
was also present and was unanimously
urged to say something about his tri
umph at tho last election, but "Tommy"
modestly shook his head, and refused
to be an orator.
The gathering was of a happy, hall
fellow well-met nature, and a henrtv
spirit of comradeship seemed to hover
over the room. The health of Congress
man Connell, Treasurer-elect Scranton,
Solicitor, Daniels, Bonn and all the
other triumphant Republicans were
drunk, time after time, and every man
on the ticket was cheered to the echo.
Representative Scheuer was the first
called upon for a speech. He referred
to tho excellent work tlono by the
Union league during the campaign and
expressed himself of tho opinion that if
a similar organization had been per
fected r'ears ago, much dissension and
trouble vould have been spared tho Re
publican party In Lackawanna, county.
He concluded his remarks by saying:
"In wishing you God-speed, I hope
that tho Union league will not rest on
Its recently gained laurels, but will
continue to be a gieat factor In tho
Republican politics of the state."
Emll Bonn remarked that he was no
orator, and did not claim to be, "but
thnt ho had always been a party man,
and ns such he gloried In the Repub
lican party's great victory of two weeks
Attorney "Watklns also spoke of tho
lam els gained by the Grand Old Party
in tho recent campaign, and declared
that tho republic had manifested its
approval of tho policy and achieve
ments of the Republican president. Ho
deftly complimented the three candi
dates present upon their victories, and
said that the work done by tho leaguo
was only another manifestation of tho
old mluge- that "In union there Is

BPARD OF TRADE TO SUBMIT
At Last Night's Meeting Among the
Resolutions Presented for Consider
ation by the National Board of
Trade Was One Calling the Atten
tion of tho Inter-state Commerce
Commission to tho Glaring Freight
Discrlminatidns Against Anthrn
cito CoalThe West Scranton
Board of Trade.
Once a year each of the Individual
boards of trade which are members of
tho national board of trade formulate
certain resolutions for consideration at
the annual meeting of that organiza
tion. The resolutions to bo Introduced
this year by the Scranton board of
trade were considered at the regular
meeting held last night, and ono of
these In particular Is especially timely
and It Is most fitting that It should
originate from an organzatlon which
has Its existence In the very heart of
the anthracite field. It reads as fol
lows: Ihsohod, rty the National Iloaid of Trade that
tho at ton 1 1 on of the Interstate comnieteo coniinU
fllon bo called to the Blaring discrimination in
freight rates against anthracite coal, and that
they are hereby ic-pectfnlly requested to do
away with such discrimination, and if the present
law under which tho commission Is acting;, doc
not permit of such action, tlu.11 i'oil;reM lie le
quoted by additional legislation to lemcdy the
Colonel F. L. Hitchcock, who, with
Secretary Atherton, will represent the
fc'cranton board of trade at tho meet
ing of the Nntlonal board, offered this
resolution und gave a number of rea
sons why It should be brought up. Ho
quoted statistics to show that whore
It costs ten and one-tenth mills per
mile to carry anthracite coal 115 miles
from Scranton to tidewater, it costs
only two and four-tenth mills per ton
per mile to carry bituminous coal 1957
"This Is a very serious question,"
said Colonel Hitchcock, "and one
which means a great deal to the peo
ple of this valley. Things have reached
such a stage now that the anthracite
operators can't even take their buck
wheat and rice coal and compete with
bituminous coal In the power produc
ing fuel market, on account of the dis
criminating freight rates given to the
"William McClnvo told of having been
present at a meeting of tho interstate
commerce commission when this "mat
ter was being discussed some years
ago, and said that the only argument
tho attorneys for the bituminous oper
ators could offer In favor of lower
freight rates was that bituminous coal
was so plentiful that it ought to be
carried cheaply, the same as sand or
gravel. He thought that what was
required was men with a little brains
on the commission. The other resolu
tions which the Scranton board of
trade will present are as follows:

Tho necessity of Increasing thu

brought up, and It was pointed out
that with siirli a membership It would
bo possible to reduce tho annual dues
from $25 to $12 a year, and still re

that 300 members wns a sufficient

of reducing tho dues oven If the mem

"A Fort of Inertia seems tu have

Vandal Scatters Strychnine About
the Court House Grounds, with
Most Disastrous Results.
Hewett's wagon yesterday morning
carted away tho carcasses of seven
dogs found In alleys and other out-of-the-way
places In the vicinity of
court house square. All had died from
An Investigation showed that the
dogs had eaten of poisoned meat on
court house square.
B. H. Megargoe, of the wholesale
paper firm of Megargee Bros,, owns a
valuable bull terrier. Sunday evening,
Richard Davis, chief of tho court
houso police, noticed tho dog stagger
ing away from the grounds and acting
as If about ao go Into spasms. Know
ing tho dog mill of Its being highly
prized, hn hastened to Veterinarian
Decker and directed him to overtake
the dog and caro for him. Tho veter
inarian caught up with the dog us It
was neaiing Its owners home, nnd af
ter working on him until 1 o'clock
yesterday morning, brought him
around all right.
Mr. Megargee yesterday started out
to hunt down tho vandal, Ho began
his Investigations nt the county com
missioners' olllce, but all tho employes
ono after tho other, stated positively
they knew nothing of how tho poison
ed meat came tn find Its way to tho
court house grounds. They nil knew
that tho northeast corner of the plot
Is n favorlto play ground for dogs, and
that on Sunday, when so many per
sons take their dogs along when out
for a walk, that It Is not uncommon
to see half a hundred canines sporting
about tho grass, "Why anyone should

indiscriminate slaughtering of doggies

Just how the death of the ordinance
was brought about when It was first
Introduced. Not being Interested In the
company, he paid no special attention
to the matter.
At the time the franchise was secured
Inst spring he had been Interested In
the company for one year and a half.
The others Interested were W. J. Lewis,
R. G. Brooks, Thomas Brooks, ex
Mayor W. L. Connell, A. P. Bedford
und E. J. Robinson.
When he became interested In tho
company ho bought out the holdings of
someone else. He could not recall whq
this was. Ho got his certificates of
stock at n meeting of the company In
Traders' National bank building.
THE EFFORT FAILED.
Soon after this meeting an effort wns
mudo to get a franchise through coun
cils, but It failed. Nothing further was
done In that direction until last win
ter. They had numerous meetings to
consider the matter of getting an ordi
nance through councils and It was ar
ranged that he should see certain
friends of his In councils and that other
members did the same. He was pre
pared to say that the securing of the
franchise did not cost him any money
and he had no knowledge of any other
member of the company paying any
thing or of any money being paid to
any person by the company for the
purpose of securing tho passage of the
Mr. Robinson had' not assisted In
raising money for the company last
Februury, when the ordinance was on
passage, and had no knowledge of the
company discounting its note at one of
the city hanks for a largo sum of
money nt that time. When he first
went Into the company he had ten
shares, and the company's capital stock
was $100,000. After the ordinance was
passed the company reorganized and
Increased the capital slock to $600,000.
Ho got his proportionate, share of the
increase of tho capital stock.
None of the couneilmen were present
nt any of the meetings of the company.

Schroeder, J. J. Schneider, Edward

He was at the council chamber the
night select council passed the ordi
nance. He did not go Into the- treas
urer's private office after the meeting.
He went to the Scranton house, where
he mot Andrew Healey. Witness could
not s;iy whether or not Healey had
business In the treasurer's office im
mediately after the meeting adjourned.
So far as he knew, Healey was not
specially Interested In the passage of
the telephone ordinance. Healey hus
no financial or other interest In the
company, so far as he knew.
Witness declared that he never had
a conversation with ex-Mayor Connell
or either of the Messrs. Brooks about
tho amount It would cost to pass tho
ordinance. On the night the ordinance
passed, ho met nearly ull of the mem
bers of council at the Scranton house.
Ho could not remember tho names of
those he saw there.
Mr. Robinson said he never conferred
with P. J. O'Boylo about the passage
of the ordinance and had no knowl
edge that Mr. O'Boyle was Interested
in the passage of the ordinance. Ho
had no knowledge of a meeting of
couneilmen In the St. Charles hotel a
few hours before the council meeting.
That concluded Mr. Robinson's ex
