PRESENT DEPARTMENT IS SUB
JECTED TO CRITICISM.
After Listening to Allegations of In
efficiency In Our Present Partly
Volunteer and Partly Paid Depavt
went, the Board of Trade does on
Recoid for ft Full Ild Department
and Recommends the Adoption of
Chittenden Ordinance Threats to
Raise Insurance Rates Rnlss
Chairman Dickson's lie.
Moil of the tlnif of last night's lejtu.
lar meeting of the Ixuird ot tiadc was
devoted to n illocussion of the need
of iL'orsnnlzliifc the lire department. It
win the general opinion thnt the de
partment was sorely in ned of teor
Kanlzlng; and that the Chltrend.n or
dinance, providing for n paid di.jmrt-in-iit,
nhoutd be passed.
N'otlceH were sent to nil members ot
the board that the meeting would dh
hush the fire protection question, with
n view of arriving ut some recommen
dation to councils that would bear tho
Htamp of upproval of tho city's busi
ness men. Six teem member attended.
Colonel P. I.. Hitchcock, who Is tv
member of the Underwriter associa
tion, opened the dlrcusslon by naylng
thnt tho need of a reorganization ot
tho fire department was evidenced by
tho recent disastrous conflagration on
Lackawanna avenue und that he did
not know but that the notorious man
ner In which this flro demonstrated
the Inefficiency of the fire department
would result In the rates of Insurance
Vice President A. W. Dickson, who
was In the chair, warmed up very
nercentlblv ut th h suggestion of a
raise In rates and assured the colonel
that there would bo a very vigorous
sort of a protest If the underwriters
attempted any such thing.
"What else can you expect?" iuerleil
Colonel Hitchcock. "There was a tire
that caused them n. quarter of n mil
lion dollars' loss and tlireo-fourtlm of
this loss was due to the Inefficiency ot
tha flro dep;irtment."
Kbene7r Williams, of the llrm of
J. V. llllams ttc Bros., whose store
was damaged by the fire, said ho could
not tell whether or not the lire was
properly fought, as ho was busily en
gaged In trying to snva his own prop
erty, but he did know the water pres
sure was not what It should have been.
WEIU3 WITHOUT A HEAD.
It sei-med from all he could gather
concerning the work of the llrcmeu
that they were without a head. Ho
encountered n sriuad of firemen work
ing Improperly, as he viewed It, In
his building and he remonstrated with
them. He was told he would be thrown
out If he didn't keep his mouth shut.
The chief came along soon afterward
and directed tho work to be done
according to tho idea Mr. Wllllutns
"Does this board favor a paid de
partment?" asked Chairman Dickson,
somewhat testily. "That's the ques
tion before tho house. Let us hear
from you." '
Secretary Atherton presented for the
consideration ot the board a report
made by a special committee and
ndopted In December, 1S93, In which
It was eet forth that the board of
trade should fuvor a paid fire depart
ment, with a well-paid fire marshal and
$70 a month for tho firemen after a
reasonable term of service.
In connection with this, the secretary
read a communication from John
M. Keinmerer, who said he favored a
paid fire department and also favored
tho Hipper bill:
Secretary Atherton volunteered the
Information that it had como to him
from a reliable source that tho mayor
had been lobbying against a paid tiro
department. This he characterized as
a sorry spectacle. The Chittenden or
dinance, Secretary Athetton went on
to say, was defeated by councllmen
who are volunteer firemen and he be
lieved no member of the lire depart
ment should be eligible to membership
In tho councils. Tho business men of
tho community have soma rights In
this matter, he said, and the board
should take decisive action to assert
Colonel Hitchcock was anmed, ho
declared, to learn that the mayor was
lobbying against n paid tiro depatt
ment, as the mayor hnd repeatedly as.
sured him he was heartily In fuvor of
It. He was also surprised to learn that
any firemen were opposing it, as ho
found the firemen enthusiastically ap
proving It when he was agitating the
matter In 1S33. He continued:
I d. not vant to detract from the heroic oik

TRUMAN'S "OLIVER TWIST."
Very Clever Interpretation of Dick
en' Story Given Last Evening.
One of the cleverest of monologue
entertainments seen In this city was
given at tho auditorium of the St.
Luke's parish house last cvcnlng.-Mhen
Frederick W. Truman presented his
version of Dickens' "Oliver Twist."
Tho entertainment was given for the
benefit of tho Men's guild, nnd there
was a fair-sized attendance.
Mr. Truman Impersonate no less
than twenty-one characters In the
untrue of his presentation of Oliver
rwlHi, und In every Instance, execut
ing pcrhopi the female characters, tho
distinction between personages Is
marked by expression of the face nnd
modification of tho voice.
Mr. Truman's ability to change from
the gruff, harsh tones ot Hill Mykes to
tho timid, boyish voice of Oliver Twist,
to the shrinking, cringing vocal ex
pressions ot wicked old Pagln 1 ccr
tanly remarkable. Probably the fea
ture of Mr. Truman's performance last
night was his Interpretation ot the
scenes In Fagtn's den.
His characterization of the old villain
was sunerb nnd Is easily the Imper
sonator's strongest point. Another
strong part of last evening's perform
ance was the impersonator's lnturprt
tatlon of humorous scenes, for In
stance, the trial scene when Oliver
wm charged with picking ot Mr.
Ilrownlow's pockets. The difference
between Judge Fang and Mr. Hrown
low were reproduced with great real
ism nnd provoked no end of laughter.
Professor .T. Willis Ponant gave an
otgan selection. John Jones sang with
great force the solo, "The Hrlgand,"
nnd was encored, and Miss Irene Kann
rendered two solo with her accustom
SHE DELIVERED AN ADDRESS
TO THE STRIKERS.
There Is Some Talk of n Compro

Mother Miry Jones mtivi'd in thli
city yesteidny noon, and last nlulit
addressed tin audience which com
plettdy tilled the St. Thoman College
hall. Tho female organizer of the

She came here from Armop, Tioga,
county, where mIip wast located for
some time. Last nlght's meeting was
called to order at S o'clock. Ity that
time every seat In the auditorium,
was taken, nnd en the stage were
seated a large number of young wo
men, tho strikers' executive commit
tee. President T. D. Nichols, of District
No. 1, Introduced Mother J one.", who
wan accorded a warm greeting. Sho
said this Is the first industrial re
volt on the American continent in the
twentieth century. S1k Ih acquainted
! with the conditions about the f Ilk mill
and declared that the employes are
always being robbed, tfhe nil vised the
girls to employ one of their own num
ber to do the measuring. .
Mother Jones then paid her respects
to the girls who have deserted the
strikers' rrinlcs and gone back to work.
Thesu she characterized as blacklegs,
nnd advised all young men present
to pledge themselves never to enter
a matrimonial alliance with any audi.
Sihe then assured the girls of her un
faltering support, and declared that
she would meet the executive commit
tee this morning at tho Mine Workers'
headquarters. She also advised a pub
lic procession of ull the striker.-".
Henjnmln James then made a short
address, in which he spoke of the or
ganizing of the miners during tho last
two years, and assured the silk mill
girls of their support. President Nlch
olls hi ought the meeting to a closa
with an address. In which he assured
the strikers of the hearty support of
the miners of District No. 1.
Efforts for a compromise are being
made by the owners of various mills,
at which the employes have struck,
and at today's meeting of the strlkem"
executive committee some action will
be taken regarding tho proposals
which have been made. The negotia

nature, but It Is a known fact that

Tho mill affected is not one ot the
city concerns. A conference was yes

WILL NOT ACCEPT IT.
What Secretary John H. Brooks Says
of Amended Franchise Ordinance
of His Trolley Company.
John II. Urooks, secretary and tuus
urer of the Central Rapid Transit
.Street Hallway company, stated most
emphatically to a Tribune man yes
teiday ntternoon that unless at least
two of the amendments to the fran
chise which were adopted at last
Thursday night's meeting of the neleci
council arc reconsidered and stricken
off, the company will not accept It.
"The company cannot and will not
accept the franchise as It now stands,"
said he. "It would be utterly Impos
sible. Then are three amendments
which ptactlcally kill It, but one or
these we might accept. Tho one I re-'
fer to Is tin! amendment striking out
that portion of the oidlnance which
gave us the right to operate a loop on
Centre street, Mifflin avenue and Vine
street. It might be possible for its to
get to West Scranton by some differ
ent touts than this, but as we see It
now there is no other route.
"The other two amendments which
kill the ordinance, as far as we are
concerned, are the ones reserving the
tight to Impose a tax ot not more than
live per rent, on our gross receipts,
and ptovldlmr that at the end ot
twenty years the franchise shall revert
to the city."
