There were real Wilkes li'irre sports -with bad cigars and big wads of bills, there were members of tho frat from all over the county, and among them, Indeed, veto a few city officials. The prellmlnaty was between I'red Alpanalp, of Duryoa, and John Thom as, of Wost Scranton, two lightweights, who gave a lively three-round match, which Keferce Connolly pronounced a di av. Then chairs wero pulled closer up to tho ting and a general look of pleasant expectancy pervaded the countenances of nil present. A hum of busy con versation followed tho leferee's decis ion, and then the buily form of Chief of Police ltobllng appeared In the elooi wav, with City Detective John Jlolr nt his side. There was a tu&h of the members of the Twentieth Century Athletic club, under w hose auspices the affair was being given, to the chiefs side, and a lloud of explanations fol lowed as the latter announced; "Complaints were iccelved today that a prize fight was to take place, and we can't allow it You will have to call it all off." Tor hevcial minutes explanations came thick and fast that this wasn't a prize fight, It was merely a h.um Iciis sparring match. "Why, chief," said one of the pio motors earnestly, "this Is to be merely an exhibition of the noble art of .-elf-defVnse. T myself will stand by and txpaln every blow as it is struck."

THEY TALKED ABOUT REFORM LIVELY MEETING. OF NORTH BCRANTON MEN'S SOCIETY. Ex-City Solicitor Jamc3 H. Torrcy Gave nn Interesting Address on Municipal Hefonu aud Also Ex plained Why Pittsburg Peoplo iavor tno Ripper Bill Severely Scored the Fire Department Other Speakers Were Prominent Members of the Society. Municipal refoim was dlseusscd at Inst night meeting of the Ncnth Scian ton Men's society In tho Providence Picsbyterlan church, nnd very lively nnd Interesting wcio some of the opin ions expressed on the subject. Among the speakers of tho night were Poimer City Solicitor James H. Torrey, Sec retary of the Board of Trade Dolph U. Atheiton. who Is rtesldent of the so ciety, T. 8. Morgan. O. P. Miller and o Vers. f An a tcsult of tho discussion papers cypiesslng tho sense of tho meeting wero adopted. In these the society congratulated the Muntclpnl league on the splendid woik It has done, urged an attendance of good leputnblu citi zens at the polls duilng ptlmary nnd tho other elections, and nlso advised its mombeis to ciuefully look Into the fiuallflcatlons of nil candidates for pub llo position before voting for them. After the regular loutluc business had been transacted President Ather ton made a brief speech, In which he refeired briefly to the piesent agitation over the tipper bill, and then intro duced Attorney Torrey, as a man well qualified to speak on both municipal affairs and municipal leform. A mes sage fiom President J. A. Lansing, of the boaid of tinde, won nlso delivered by Mr. Atheiton. Mt. Lansing was expected as one ot the speakers ot the evening, but was called to Ihiffnlo on business. He. however, sent the following message-: "I e-ongiatulate the Men's socle-ty of North Scranton that I must be In lluffalo tomouow morning. ' ItHCniVHD WITH LAUGHTKR. Which modest but lather uncompli mentary tribute to Mr Lansings' ora torical povveis was accepted with much laughter b the roclety. City fJollcl tor Vosbutg, another of the expe'eted guests, was In Hurilsbutg. Mi. Toi rey. In the course of his remarks, said nncnt the subject ot the much discussed "Upper" bill; "This 'ripper' phase of a second class city charter Is no new development. I happened to glance over n second c'rss. city act the other day which was agltateni In Plttsbuig tour yeats ago, and which was backed by the leprcsentatlvcs of the besl classes of tho city. Professional and commercial men both supported the 'tipper' claue. The latter may look narrow, even out rageous to us, but in Plttsbuig they are tr.vlng to accomplish an end and ate not very particular as to the means. "Pittsburg people want that part ot the act to go through, because th?y have been ridden for yeais and enri by a shameless ting, who have; bilbcd councils, had all contracts at their ov n figures, peddled public trnnchlse. and who have done most elegantly and completely what some members of our lty councils did In a ety small nnd botsh manner. "If wc llvfd In Pittsburg and suf fered as tho citizens the-ic have, we would not consider the 'ilppcr' part of the act so preposteious. I think that any suggestions from Scrintou ivgardlng second class city legislation woull be kindly met at Pittsburg, but If we send lepioscntatlves there sim ply to oppose the 'ilppei daife, wo aie making a mistake. CAN fir.T ALONG. "However, even with poor legisla tion a city with an honest admlnlstta tlon can get along, but back of nn honest administration tbeie must be honest and intelligent electois." Mr. Toirey Intetspersed his nddiess with seveial polnlPcl anecdote, and his vvoids had a m irked effect on bis audience, in concluding, he said: "We do not itaud up for nbfolutc In tegilty us we should. We aie bound to stand up lor law and personal right nnd should not be so willing to com promise. Influenced by matteis of pei sonal feeling. We let out feelings tun away w Ith us.

No matter what our impntliles wete, we should not havo allowed any passengers In cats to l liented with conte'inpt nnd hailed with oppi obi Iouh epithets by stieet cbll dren. And another thing about the stilke. Kvon though we do have as poor n. service as can be tound tho counti) over, and tho company's pol icy tow in els the city has been the least Ubcial, still, as an American citizen, !t toused my blood that business men lould be intimidated by stilkcis and be c'lctaled to, as to whether or not they could sell meichandWe to street ear company lepresentntlvcs." The speaker then paid his ottentio.i to the (lie department, and raid: THH FIP.I3 DEPARTMENT.. "A one Instance of the effeit of municipal conuptlon in a public d) P'lttment, look at the fire department. How has It always shown Itself, and paitlcularly duilng the last big fire? And what Is the renson-.' It Is con trolled by selfishness and gicecl and we reap tne results. "I heard of an action of ono ot the firemen last Thursday who demanded from tho proprietor of a bIioo store boots for himself and comrades, and on being lefused said, "Oh, to h 1 with tho building then Let It burn " O. P. Miller, an e-North Scranton councilman, concurred In ull Mr. Tor icy's views, as did also the ollur speakers. The next meeting of the so i loty will be a reception to the ladles, and ptomlses to be a gala event. WELSH CLERGYMAN'S DEATH. Was Pastor In Liverpool for Twouty three Years.
