MEN OP THE HOUR. the miow melts away t'mni the it and bursting buds on the tree In. niches begin to foretell the arrival of t-pi'ilig. the thoughts of the faithful bun' hull partisan tuin wistfully to the great natlinial game, and conjecture becomes ijiu as to whether tho city will lie represented this season by a team. Uotli Scrantonians and Wilkes Itarrcims 111 e putting In a good deal of time arguing the matter these days, but the outlook Is not bright. It Is doubtful If there Is a man In either city who will feel the absence of a nine more than Harry Merrill, the base ball editor of the Wllkes-Harre Itecord, who from time almost Immemorial has heeu associated with tho buse ball lore of the l.ackawanua-Luzcrnc legion. He was In tho city Thursday night, accompanying the Wllkes-Harre lodge of Klkti. of which he Is a member, on their fraternal visit tu tho local branch. "Pop" Men III. as he Is some times called. Is thor'oughly disheart ened over the present situation, nnd practically despairs of seeing any real bnws ball In Wllkes-Harre this year. In this city tho status of affairs is similar to that lu Wllkes-Harre, the men who have been yearly Investing in base ball and coining out at the horn's small, end, declaring that after last year's disastrous expeilence they are through with professional ball. How ever, botli Mr. Merrill and local scribes who have been watching matters see a faint glimmer of hope In the prospect of a weml-professlonul league. Clubs could be maintained lu Scranton, Wllkes-Harre, Plttston, Carboudale, Olyphant, Avoca and other surround ing places, and some pretty fast ex hibitions seen. , a M, F. Urown, who for seveuil years has been engaged In tho hut and gentleman's furnishing business on Wyoming avenue with Frank McCaun, lias dissolved partnership with that gentleman and will hereafter engage in tho business himself lu one of the Wyoming avenue stores of the Hotel leiniyn building. Mr. Brown Is one of tho bft known and most progressiva of the younger business men of the city, lie waa born In Carbuudale and ld his early butlnces training thstw lfeLf.!Mi ) I 3M h$dX ''' H' but has been here lone enough to be considered a thorough Scriintonliui In nil that the word Implies In the busi ness world. For Bevel nl years Mr. Drown was inuitaecr of his father's ncnural store on CapotiRO avenue, but nbundoned tlint position to enter business for himself In the centie of the city, where opportunities are InrRcr. The success the Arm of Drown & McCinm met with Is woll known In the business world, anil this succcsh, It Is safe to say, will be continued by the senior partner, who now takes upon bis shoulders nil of the responsibilities of tho business. He Is n (Tu I ilc and courteous, makes friends readily and Is today one of the best known and most popular business men In the valley. PERSONAL.

Mrs. Duggan Will Take Steps to Keep Them Off Streets. The presence of little girls on the streets after VI o'clock at night Is no unusual spectacle In Scranton. There Is something in the slight llgure wrapped lu a tattered shawl, with a big bundle of newspapers under her arm, that appeals to the night-hawks found lounging In the restaurants and all-night saloons, and the business is a profitable one. Mrs. AV. B. Duggan. agent for the Board of Associated Churltles. Is about to take steps to keep these little girls off the street late at night. Mrs. Duggan claims that the girls lu their eagerness to sell the papers make the 1 omuls of the disorderly houses. The girls found on the streets late at night average between eight and nlno years.

MITCHELL ON THE NOTICES President ol the United Mine Work ers Saus Tlicu Arc Not Satistactoru. TELLS WHAT WOULD BE SATISFACTORY National Head of the Miners' Or ganization Points Out How the Operators Would Be Gnlners by Recognizing- the Union nnd Effect ing nn Explicit Agreement as to Wages and Other Teims of Work. Nothing Now to Obligate the Men to Continue Work The Notice Posted at Collieries Saturday. President John Mitchell, of the t 'lil ted Mine Workers of America, arrived here yesterday afternoon from Indian apolis on tho S.SS Delaware. Lackawan na and Western train, and slopped off for n day before proceeding to the Hnzlctou convention. He was accom panied by his secretary, Miss Kllabeth Morris, who was with him during ths big strike last fall, and who will 111 ns stenographer of tho seciet sessions of tho convention. Mr. Mitchell spent the afternoon and last night in conference with the local labor leaders at the St. chillies. Dis trict President T. J. Nlcholls. Secre tary John T. Dempsey, National Or ganizer Fred Ditcher, Organizer Bolnrt N. Courtiight, "Mother" Jones and Martin D. Flaherty, president of the Central Labor union, were among those who conferred with him. Ho had expected to pass upon some allegations that were being made against certain of the local olllcers by a Sunday paper, but as the paper yes terday declared Its unreadiness to prove Its charges, Mr. Mitchell Is dis posed to Ignore the matter. His Inten tion last night was too leave for Ha zlcton this afternoon at 4.2." o'clock. To a Tribune reporter who called upon hliu last evening Mr. Mitchell suld the bare statement attributed to him by a despatch from Indianapolis, to the effect that the posting of no tlces was not satisfactory, did not con vey the full truth. MFAN MtVH OB 1.1TTLK. "That may mean much or It may mean little," Mr. Mitchell went on to say. "In my judgment the proper way to adjust wages nifd Insure uninter rupted work Is by annual conferences. There Is no good reason why the oper ators should not confer with us and there are many good reasons why they should. Last fall they put forth the excuse thnt the men were not rep resented by the Mine Workers' union. That excuse, they must admit, no longer holds good, for no one better than they knows that practically every man In the region who Is eligible to membership Is now enrolled In the Mln Workers' union. ' The operators make the charge that strikes arc more frequent now than ever before. I do not admit this to be true, but If It was true. It would be only natural. Before being organ ized the men did not feel the cimlldenee and strength that comes from union. Now they realize their strength nnd It may be that they ai" prone to us-i-crt it. If they were rootrained by some specllle agieement. such as we want the operators to cuter Into, the men would be obliged to do certain things before striking, and theio would be an end to petty nnd sudden strikes, such as It Is alleged are frequently occurring. "For installer. If a crowd of dilvers at some colliery had a gilevance they would not tuin out to enforce a re drws of that gilevance, but realizing that their olllcers were authorized to ileal lor them with their employers, they would restrain themselves and leave the adjustment of the dispute to their olllcers. If there was nn agreement between th" organization and the operntors th organization would see to It that that agreement was not violated by the men, At pres ent the 1 'nlted Mine Workers are un der no obligation to keep the men at work, and. without breaking faith, could order a strike every month. The operators ought to realize this and so that It Is to their ndvnntage to deal with the union." NO DUFiNlTK BKPLIF.S. line not admitting it In so many words. Mr. Nlcholls clearly demon strated that he docs not expect any operators at the conference. Ho sent them each a telegram aiU lug them If they would confer, and followed this up with n letter Inviting them to confer. He received some re sponses, but they contained nothing dednlto as to whether or not the In vitation would be ncceptcd. Following Is 11 iopv or th" notice posted at nil the collieries hereabouts Saturday: "The 10 per cent, advance and other concessions made by this company on Oct. fi, IOOli. as per notlc posted, will be continued to April 1, KM:!, and theieafter, until further no tice.

Internal Revenue Collector's Ofllce Is in Receipt of Copy of New Law, Coins Into Effect July 1 It Shows That Tax on Almost All Documen tary Articles Hn Been Removed, Only Deeds of High Denomination Requiring Stamps Telegrams Are Exempt. Hubert B. i'ennuiu, cashier lu the office of I'nited States Inlet mil Beve line Collector T. F. iVmiinii, has ie celved n copy ot the new revenue tax law, which goes lino effect July I, and a comparison of this with the present law shows a number of change. From numeious articles tho entire tax has been lifted, while in other In stances It has been considerably light ened. One of the most material changes Is in the taxing of tobacco, cIriiis and cigarettes. Tobacco for merly taxed at 32 cents a pound Is now subject to a 20 per cent, discount, which brings the revenue doVn to u tax of ! n..i cents. Cigars formerly taxed at $1.00 a thotiKiiud aie now sub ject to but $3 n thousand. In all caps where Ihe weight Is over three pounds. On the small clgais and cigarettes weighing less their Is a tax of IS cents per pound, as compared to a former loventte of $I.r,o a thousand on paper cigarettes and Jl a thousand on the snull cigars. The beer tax Is cut down from t! to SI per batrel. The former was, however, subject to a 710 per cent, discount, wheieas the pies ent Is subject to none. The tax Is taken off articles tn "f-ehedule B." which Includes medi cines of nil hinds. The revenue on wines which are Included In this cate gory is. however, continued, 1 cent and 2 cents on pint and quart bottles. It Is also removed from all documentary articles, except deeds of high denomi nations. It has been the law to tax deeds fifty cents for every $.'00. tmder the new schedule, however, the tax be gins with a 2.", cent stump for any sum from $2.:.n to $3,000. A 25 cent addi tional tax Is icqulicd for every jr.00 over till". The stamps are also ictnoved from all Insurance papers and telegrams and exptess packages. The tax Is con tinued on Height, bltllnid and pool tables, rubbers, theatres, nnd other taxable subjects. Fvery bunk must continue paying on Its enpltsllzpil slock and surplus. BORROWED THE HORSE. Two Boys Had a Very Lively After noon. After ftijoylng a nlne-liour ride up and down the valley at 11 break-neck pare, Leo Jordan, an 18-year-old youth, went to the livery stable to return the horse and buggy nnd fell Into the hands ot Patrolman Thompson, who was thre waiting for him. Jordan went to Alderman KWly yes. tefilny morning -and told him he want ed to get llio nlderman's horse to have him clipped by his uncle, a man named oar. As this man has been In the habit of clipping thf alderman's horse for the past live or six years, he read ily granted the lad permission to take the animnl. Jordan went to Decker's rtables, where the horse Is kpt. and hud ihe animal hitched up and drove away. At tho postotllce he picked up another lad by the name of Pnt Jlessltt. and together they spent the afternoon driv ing up nnd down the valley. At about S o'clock Jordan drove into the livery with the horse covered with sweat and almost dropping from ex haustion. The carrlafeo was covered with mud and generally the outllt pre sented a much-abused appeaiance. Jordan Hits on Emmet street. SLOT MACHINE GONE. Municipal League Detectives Had a Trip for Nothing.
