The (list speaker to follow was A,
ii. Holmes, who staled the oh.leel of
Iho hoard of trade In calling the meet
ing, and expressed the belief that nil
personal feollngs should be set nsldj
In this election and that they should
oast their ballots for mature men In
years, business and experience: for

liest and honed. "If we do this," he
said, "We can go I" our homes after

School ( ontroller T. J. .lennlnps, u
has Just returned from I'lttBhurif,
where lit- spent a Week In looking: Into
second class city legislation, was
called upon and gave a detailed ac
count of the condition of affairs as
they obtain In Pittsburg and Alle
gheny. He took occasion to eoinpll
nn.nt The Tribune for sending a spur
lot representative to Pittsburg for the
purpose of studying the dlffeience be
tween cities of the si'onil and third
class, and commended The Tilbune's
apeeial articles now runnliiK dally to
the earnest and IntelllKent considera
tion of the public lu Kcnetal.
Hb s.tld from his personal knowledKO
and Investigation that The Tribune's
articles cover the ground thoroughly
and accurately and should be carefully
read and studied by everybody who
has the welfare of the city at heart.
He then wont into nil exhaustive
discussion of the relative conditions as
they now 'exist and Incidentally stated
that as far as the mayor of Pittsburg
is concerned he can perform his duties
with a rubber stamp. "It Is unreason
able," he said, "to compare Seranton
with Pittsburg, as one would bo prac
tically lost In comparison to the other.
"The members of councils and board
of trade ought to visit Pittsburg and
Allegheny and learn for themselves the
true conditions of affairs there. Then
they would not want to enter the sec
ond class. Pittsburg is the most com
pletely politically controlled city In the
"We might better remain at the head
of the third than be at the tall of the
y:-cond claf-s and men who aspire to be
counclhncu should pledge themselves
not to vote for the transition. Per
sonally 1 am utterly opposed to Scran
ton as a city of thesecond class."
ISbenezer Williams thought that we
have no other remedy than to accept
the change and govern ourselves ac
cordingly, unless special legislation is
secured. At this point the original
purport of the meeting was again an
nounced by William Farrell, who said
the assemblage was called together
to discuss men to act for the people
instead of corporations, W. Haydn
ICvans thotht. the candidate who so
licits votes should be avoided, anil be
lieves the otllee should seek the man.
"There Is ton much effort," he s-ild,
"to advance the interest of one man
Instead of working in the Interest of
the people. Heware of the man who
spends money to get elected. He will
get it buck some way."
A committee of live, consisting of
.Tenkln T. Iteesc, Charles K. banning,
John J. Hurt, Dr. M. J. "William and
William f'arrell, watt then appointed to
draft resolutions setting forth the ob
ject of the meeting.
While the committee wns preparing
Its report, Hon. John It. Fair advo
cated the selection of good men for
councils, who will be nble to legislate
honestly and fearlessly In the Interest
of the people. ''The trouble Is," he said,
"people don't take the proper Interest
In municipal arfalrs. We now have an
opportunity to select good men and no
man should be elected to council who
cannot size up to Ihe requirement."

den peril has been plunged in the en
gulfing wave, or caught in an upper
chamber of a burning house; these know
how all of present and future can be
gathered into that brief sentence, "A
chance for life."
There is another class of people, those
in danger from disease, who understand
how much lies in those few words.
There are men and women living to-day
in healthy, active enjoyment of life who
can look back to the time when they
were weak and emaciated, coughing un
til the blood trickled over their lips, see
ing no hope of escape from that dread
But a chance for life came to them
and they took it.
"I feel very grateful for the home
treatment given me by the World's Dis
pensary Medical Association," writes Mr.
T. J. F. Brown, of Sands, Watauga Co.,
N. C. "I had catarrh for several years,
then took grip, also had hemorrhage
from the lungs. I had the best medical
attention, but only to bring partial re
lief. I got up for a few months, but had
more hemorrhages. I took Dr. K 's
Discovery (twenty-five or thirty bottles),
but in a few months I had more spells of
bleeding. I wrote to Dr. Pierce and re
ceived directions what kind of medicine
to use; I commenced taking his ' Golden
Medical -Discovery ' and Dr. Sage's Ca
tarrh Remedy. I had only taken one
bottle when I could see I was improving.
, j use(1 five bottles of the 'Discovery' and
, three Dotties 0f Dr. Sage's Catarrh Rem-
I have been able to do any kind
of labor for more than twelve months.
Well, I just simply owe my life to the
World's Dispensary Medical Association."
A CHANCE FOR EVKRY ONK.
Arguing from the cures effected by the
use of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis
covery, there's a good chance of recov
ery for every one who suffers with weak
lungs, obstinate cough, bronchitis and
other forms of disease which if neglected
or unskilfully treated find a fatal termi
nation in consumption. What the
chance of recovery is may be determined
by tlie fact that of the thousands of per

son who hate used "Golden Medical
Discovery " (and when necessary con
sulted Dr., Pierce by letter, free), ninety
eight per cent, have been perfectly and
permanently cured. In serc eaten of
pulmonary disease "Golden Medical Dis
covery" lias worked wonders. It has
come to the sick man or woman as a last
resort. The breath came ill gasps; tha
cough was deep and distressing, then
were hemorrhages, nlght-sweats.etnacia
tlon and great weakness. The doctor in
many cases had gone his way saying
"There's nothing more to be done."
Then Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis
covery was used nnd the cure began.
The cough disappeared. The 'hemor-!
rhages censed. Flesh was put on. And
the once hopeless sufferer was at length
restored to the activities of labor and
the enjoyment of life. Thousands wit
ness to these facts and these witnesses
know whereof they speak because they
are men and women who testify that they
owe their lives to "Golden Medical Dis-i
covery,and Dr. Pierce.
"My husband had beeni
coughing for years and'
people irankly told mei
that he would go into
consumption," writes Mrs.,
John Shireman, of No. 263,
35th Place, Chicago, Ills.
" Had such terrible cough-'
Ing spells, we not only
vc, grew umcli alarmed, but
' looked for the bursting of1
n blood-vessel or hemor
rhage at almost any time.
After three days' coughing,
lie was too weak to cross
the room, The doctor did
him no good. I stated
the case to a druggist, who
banded 111c a bctlc of Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery. My husband's'
recovery was remarkable.
In three days after he
began using Dr. Pierce's,
Golden Medical Discovery
he was up and around and
in two more days he went,
to work. Two bottle;
cured him." '
WHAT WOUI.D IT COST
to consult the ordinarr!
specialist in disease? More in most cases'
than the average person has to spend in,
fees. Yet persons suffering front chronic,
diseases are invited to consult an extra
ordinary Specialist by letter,w.
Dr. Pierce, chief consulting physician,
to the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical In
stitute, Buffalo, N. Y., is an extraordin
ary specialist. He is extraordinary in an
unbroken experience in the treatment'
and cure of disease which extends over
thirty years. He is extraordinary in his
success: 98 per cent, of those he has
treated being absolutely and entirely
cured. He extraordinary in that he
puts at the disposal of correspondents
not only his own services but the ser
vices of his medical staff numbering
nearly a score of qualified physicians.
There is no other offer of free medical
advice which has behind it so renowned
nn Institution as the Invalids' Hotel and
Surgical Institute, or such a successful
specialist as Dr. Pierce. Write in confi
dence to Dr. R. V. Pierce, Buffalo, N. Y.
Do not accept any substitute for " Gold
en Medical Discovery." The medicine
that dealers sometimes offer as "just as
good" as Dr. Pierce's is not the medi
cine which has cured the thousands who
testify that when all other medicines
failed "Golden Medical Discovery" re
stored them to perfect and permanent

disease in its many forms, from the view
point of common sense and in plain
Knglish. This book is sent free on re
