STRIKERS ARE RESTING.
Action of Mill Owiieis Is Being
Awaited Settlement of Strike
All H unlet at th .sk; mill strlkciV
headiiuaiters nowadays, and all action
Is In susiiPtiM' until an answer has been
received lrnni the mill owners i-eR.it il
lufT the iitiosllon or aibltration. The
executive committee met yesterday
morning-, but realizing that nothing
can be done until the operatots have
expressed their sentiments, but lltttlo
business of Importance was transacted.
It Is expected that Valentine Illlss
and Superintendent. Davis, of the Satt
quolt mill, will be homo within a few
days from the South, and immediate
action will then be taken, at n meet
ing of the owners and superintendent!-,
to cither settle the sttlke by entrust
ing It to a boaid of arbitration or by
using any other practicable means.
The local sttlkers foel considerably
ciicotn-.'iKod bv the successful issue of
the Wllkes-H.uie strike at the Hani
Tord silk mill, whore the girls will re
sume work next Monday. They have
been out eight weeks. The settlement
or tho dlfllcullics was effected at a
meeting between a committee rroin the
AVllkes-Harre Central Labor union and
Supcilntcndent Atmstrong. Some of
the girls receive an advance In wages
of $3 :i month, .some $'l nnd otheis Jt,
a. geni'f.il increase of about rlftccn per
cent, being made.
The weaveis of the mill do not share
In the advance at piesent, and the
reason given lor this by the owners Is
that only experienced help ean receive
the comparatively high wages usually
paid In this department, but when the
Luzerne girls have been working longer
al it they will he granted an Incicase.
The strike will be declared off tonight.
About two huudtcd and twenty-live

among these was their departure ftom
tlio province of Shan'SI, with Its fortv
Ilvo days' journey to Hong Kong, dur
ing almost every day of which bands
of jellow robbers accosted them and
with threats and blows forced them to

field, at the suggestion of Ttev. I). M.

Its disastrous results, and about a

news.as they slowly proceeded on their
Minowful journey, that the Boxers

N'ot only pneumonia, consumption,
bronchitis and throat trouble follow
the grip, but kidney, liver and stomach
are troubles Just aw liable to result,
provided any of iheso organs should
happen to be In a weak condition at
the time of attack.
To get rid of the grip germ, to get
It entirely out of tho system and blood,
few remedies ate so good and none
safer that Stuart's Catarrh Tablets;
they are not a compound of powerful
and clangorous drugs, but n pleasant,
palatable, convenient lemcdy In tablet

says: "Last winter an attack of the

befoio we left our province there was
such 11 Roxer craze that the young

"However, there's one thing which
ought to be emphasized and that is the
fact tlial tho entile' uprising was es
sentially an anti-foreign one, not un

"The division of China, as hei aided
in the foreign papers and circulated
among the Chinese-, fanned this spirit

antagonistic spirit of the dowager cm

turbulent spirit of the time, and pre

Has Been Sottled Suit of Rcplogle
Against Frothlng-ham and Rcy-
, nolds Court Notes.
Tho full bench yesterday heard ar
guments on the test case brought by
Martin Flynn' to discover whether or
not tho liquor dealers of Scranton
must pay $550 or $1,100 for their licenses
this year. The first figure Is that pro
vided by the third-class city act, and
the last the one provided by the second-class
Mr. Flynn Is suing for a mandamus
to compel County Tieusttrer Scranton
to Issue him a license for $550. At yes
lerday'H argument ho was represented
by Attorneys Ira II, Burns, Joseph
O'Rricn and M. J. Martin, while At
torney S. Ii. Price appealed for the
Mr. Burns, In offormr the main ar
gument for the plaintiff, based his re
marks almost entirely upon an opin
ion hnnded down In the caso of tho
Commonwealth vs. McGrnrlarty by
Judge C. 13. Rice, of the Superior court,
when that Jurlt was picsldcut judge
of tho Luzerne county courts. At that
time the borough of Hazlcton was re
oigaulzlng as a. olty of the third class,
and a case was brought to determine
whether the saloonkeepers should pay
for a borough or a third-class city
Tho borough was organized hs ii city
on April 4, and Judge Rico decided that
the charge should be made for only a
borough license, Mr. Rums contended
that a similar condition of affairs ex
isted in this city. Scranton Is now a
city of tho third class, he said, and will
not be a city of the second class until
10 o'clock 011 the morning of Monday,
April 1. Tho licenses become effective
on March 3t. ho said, and must thcie
foro be third-class city licenses. Four
days elapsed in the Hazlcton cuse,
while ten hours would elapse In this
city. Tho sume principle would apply,
Attorney Price, in reply, denied that
Scranton Is now a city of the third
class. It 1p a city of the second class,
he said, and has been ever since the
governor's proclamation was received.
Therefore when the licenses become
effective they will be second-clajss city
licenses and nothing else. Granting, he
said, that Scranton would not become
a second-class city until Monday, April
1, at 10 o'clock, -ind that the licenses
go Into effect ten hours before, tho
common law prlnclplo Is that in such
n case nothing less than a day can bo
counted. Mr. O'Brien took Issue with
Mr. Price on this point, and said that
modern conditions had changed that
A decision will be handed down very
.soon. The three judges consulted on
the case Immediately after adjourn
