Remembered Last Night.
Between the second and third act
of "The Rounders" last night word
reached Alnnager A. J. Duffy in tho
box olllce of the Lyceum that Comedian
Seabrooke of the company, and one
of the stage hands were having' trouble.
-Mr. Puffy hastened to tho stage and
as soon as lie got out where he could
be seen the curtain was rung up rud
tlenly, Air. Puffy started to make a hasty
exit but was stayed by two lusty scene
shovel's who carried him back to the
stage and turned him over to Comedian
Seabrooke. The latter determined not
to lose his prey grasped him kindly
but firmly by the arm. and then de
livered himself of a little presentation
speech. In which some nice things
about Air. Puffy as a manager and a
man wero deliclously sandwiched In
between a lot of Seubrookesqua humor.
Having said his say he presented to
Air. Puffy, In behalf of tho orchestra
and tho employes of the house a hand
some Knights of Columbus watch
charm. Tho recipient was so affected
by the evidence of tho good feeling on
the part of those who labor with him
that ho did not attempt to make u
speech, but contented himself with
bowing his thanks ns he retired from
the stage.
Presented with a Travelling Bag by
Employees of tho House.
Hurry A. Brown, tho manager of tho
Academy of Aluslc, was called back on
tho stage yesterday before thu curtain
was rung up for the nftetnoon per
formance and was there presented with
a hundsome travelling bag by thu m
tachos of the house.
The presentation speech was made
by the treasurer, R. V. Alexander,
who in a few graceful words expressed
the kindly feelings of every ono con
necled with tho house for the manager.
Air. Brown was quite overcome, hut
managed to tell the little assomblago
how much ho appreciated tho gift, but
mote than that tho kindly feelings
that prompted the act.

others were won over by tho strikers,
and after enjoying a very merry

tive committee, left for Syracuse on
the 4:'i0 a. m. train.

His name is Clyde Orrlngcr, and ho
is a carpenter by trade.
Another quit work at the solicita
tion of the .strikers, but declined to
accept fate to his home. He said he
liked the looks of Scranton and would
stay hero for a while. He assured
the strikers, however, that he would
not go to work on the oars.
Three new recruits from Syracuse,
arrived early yesterday morning, and
are being cared for at the company's
ofliees. There was a report prevalent
yesterday that twelve men bad been
brought into tho city timing tho night
by the company and quartered tit a.
small hotel. The strikers' scouts at
the stations did not credit the story,
and when other scouts mado a thor
ough search of the city without find
ing any trace of th" reported new
comers, the" executive committee be
came satisfied there was nothing In
the rumor.
At 0 o'clock last night another batch
of Imported men arrived over the Peln
ware, Lackawanna and Western from
New York city. There were thirty-one
in the party and they were in charsre
of a. man named Welnor. 'J'he strikers
learned of their coming ami gathered
at the station In large numbers. A
crowd of three hundred spectators also
When the Importations were led out
of the station and taken to the Scran
ton house for lunch, the strikers' mis
sionaries followed them, went among
them and proceeded by quiet argument
to convert them. Seventeen of thu
thirty-one quit op the spot and ac
cepted tho strikers' offer to keep llieiu
over night and pay their way back to
Xew York in the morning,
The seventeen converts wore marched
tip to tho strike headquarters in tho
Grand Central hotel and taken In
charge by tho executive committee.
Tho other fourteen followed the lead
of Special Agent Sweeney to the trol
ley company's oflice at the upper end
of the same block and were stowed
away in the improvised bunk room.
The crowd cheered the men who
turned into strike headquarters, and
.leered the fourteen who wont to the
railway company's ofllces.
A telephone message sent front the
latter place when the crowd began to
make nolso brought Chief Robllng and
a squad of patrolmen to the scene with
the patrol wagon. Their services were,
however, not required. As a precau
tionary measure the chief had the
crowd disperse.
One of the Xew York men. William
Walters, made a. speech to tho crowd
from the entrance of the Grand Cen
tral. He said lie and his comrades
came here with no knowledge of there
being a strike In progress. Tho agent
who recruited him, lie said, told thorn
they wore wanted to work on a new-

Walters further said that ho was stiro
(hat nil, with the possible exception of
one, of the fourteen who Itttd gone up
to the cotupnny's nlllco would quit to
morrow, when tho trite state of affairs
was presented to llicin,
The Xew York men, when Inter
viewed by n Tribune reporter, Hinted
that they answered advertisements
which appeared In yesterday's nntl to
day's World nntl Journnl, asking for
experienced trolley men to go to a
suburban town to work on a now road.
Those who answered the advertise
ment received a postal card, Instruct
ing them to report ready for duty at
tho corner of the Bowery and Canal
sticet, or to Xo. ii Ann street. They
wero rated for ot theso places until
yesterday afternoon, when they were

converted Xew York men, result lit

soon us (hey understand the condi
tions hot", oven though they wcr
not estoppetl from taking the strik
ers places from sympathetic mo
tive's. Four men in "shifting clothes" got
oft tho 11:WJ p. m. Delaware, Lacka-
w'tinna and Western train from Xew
York, and wore at onco surrounded
by tho strikers' scouts. The new
comers protested that they were
wrongly (suspected; itliat they wetv
Iron-workers from Paterson, and that
they canto here to work on the new
armory, and that they could prove
their statements by displaying their
union cards. They were escorted to
strike headquarters', and there proved
to the satisfaction of the executive
commltlco that they wero "all right."
The company ofllclals claim that
there are three recruiting stations In
Xew York, and that they are getting
plenty of men. Welncr, the chief ro
crulling agent, stated Inst night that
ho would have (mother &qttad of fifty
ni"ii here tonight.
Special Agent Sweeney, of the trol
ley company, was Jeered and hissed as
ho came out of tho company's of
fices last night to go homo, and tho
crowd was advancing toward Jilm
threateningly, when the appearance
of a couple of patrolmen caused the
rising excitement to subside.
The company's force yesterday, as
far ns publicly known, consisted of the
throe now men from Syracuse, two of
the first batch from Syracuse, ono old
employe and the sub-olllclals and of
fice force.
These took turns at running a cat
to Hyde Park and another to Provi
dence from early morning until short
ly after noon, when, on accoitntwif tlu
conviviality which obtained on Christ
mas afternoon anil evening, about the
central city, it was deemed advisable
not to attempt the running of anyears.
On aoount of the irregular trips and
tho feeling among many against tid
ing 011 cars during the strike, very
few passengers wore carried.
As on the previous days, there were
no signs of disorder, and the most
the men 011 tho cars were called upon
to put up with was jeers and op
probrious names which greeted thorn
all along the routes their cars trav
ersed. ,
Tho car running to Providence
jumped tho track near the Diamond
switch while Superintendent Patursuit
was at the motor. He had to walk
to the barn ad take out the wreck car
himself. After 'an hour's delay the
ear was replaced.
General Alaimger Slllimnn was not
a whit downcast over tho desertion
of the Syracuse men. "That sort of
thing is counted upon," he said. "Wo
expect wo will have to biiug on hun
dreds of men from other places befor3
wo will have enough of the right kind
and who will not be weaned away by
the strikers' entertainment committee.
' The company has recruit agents
at work in various parts of the coun
try, and after the holiday rush Is
over there will bo more men avail
able than we can possiblv want. In
tho course of two or three dnyn we
will have things running pretty well."
When asked if he saw any possibil
ity of an amicable settlement, Air.
Slllimnn answered In tho negative,
and added that if tlto men wcultl re
turn to work al once tind then send
on their committee to talk things
over some understanding might be
reached which would he satisfac
tory all around. "It they do not re
turn within ti. reasonable time," I19
went on to t-ay, "we have no eouise
left but to thresh It out."
"Tho men have only one grievance."
said Air. Sllllman, " und that we can
not redress at this time. Jfiwo could
raise the fares, as 11 coal company, for
instance, can the pi lee of Its product,
wo might be able to grant nu Increns?
in wages, even In the face of unfavor
able conditions, Alost men who had
received an unsolicited advance of flvo
per cent, would hardly strike In that
same year for nu additional twenty
eight per cent, advance."
Tho men likewise declare that they
see no chance of an early amleablj
settlement. They have mado a de
mand which they believe Is modest
and in every way jttst, mid do not
ptoposo to recede from It. They nro
highly elated over the success of their
work so far, and feel very confident
of success, "Tho company may btluiT
men here," said oneot' the strikers yes
terday, "but they can't keep them

On it field wot and soggy, nntl In tho
presence of about eight hundred spec

foot ball players struggled nt Athletic,

and utter two halves of twenty nntl
fifteen minutes the game was called

13 nil Charles' Colbert, of University ot
Pennsylvania renown, was mudo up of
many well-known local gridiron stars,
several of tho players being members
of tho invincible Scranton team of '05.
Tho other side was picked from the
St. Thomas and Thirteenth regiment
elevens, and was captained by "Poc"
Keefo. The game was begun about S
o'clock, there being a good deal of de
lay In starting. Otto Wngonhurst, an
other ex-Pennsylvania player, who
was counted upon to piny ono of the
tackles, could not be accommodated
with a suit and his place was taken by
Gllbride. John Horan, Lafayette's half
back, was chosen as referee, and as
he gave the signal the two teams lined
They were very equal as to weight.

center, Xlver and Kelllher.
The field was In too wretched a con
dition to permit of many long runs or
very spectacular plays, still there were
a few of these, contributed by Charlie,
Pan and Fred Gelbert, for the Scran
ton team, and O'Horo, Gregory and
Keefe, for tho Thirteenth. The rival
quarterbacks, Oney Wulsh and Pick
Gendall, played strongly, the latter in
particular running his team with fine
judgment. Both elevens wore handi
capped by thu absence of a good
punter, and throughout the game there
was not a single good punt made.
Pan Gelbert made the longest run ot
the game, a. twenty-yard dash in the
first half, and Charlie Gelbert made
several of his fierce, hard sprints. The
latter lived up to his 'varsity limita
tion, and in both offensive and defen
sive work proved a tower of strength.
O'Horo played his best game of the
year, and with Ralph Gregory carried
off the regimental honors. Several
times theblg fullback prevented touch
downs by hurling his sturdy frame
through the air and dropping with a
vice-like grip upon ono of the Gelbert
brothers. He also played well on' the
