DILCHER HAS
LEFT THE CITY
STARTED FOR INDIANAPOLIS
LABT NIGHT.
National Organizer Evans Also Left
for That Place Last Night They
Refused to Say Anything About
What They Aro 'Summoned to In
dianapolis Por Board of Trado
Has Declined to Send a Man to
New York to Attend the Proposed
Conference.
National Committeeman Kiederlck
Dllcher left tho city at 11.30 o'clock
last night for Indlanapollp, and while
he stublwrnly refused to kIvc any dell
nlto statement legm-dlnr? lite whys or
wherefores of his departure, from cov
ert lilnta he dropped the conclusion ur
rlved at Is that u ronference will be
probably held tomorrow at Indianapo
lis by the national board.
"I can't tell you unythliiR about my
motive for leavlnfr," In- fald to a Trib
une man at tho Lackawanna stxitlon,
Just before he left the city. "Alt that
1 can say Is, 1 am off for Indianapolis
and a quiet talk with tho boys. You
will have to put one and ono together
and read between the lines."
Harder in the day Dllcher had de
clared i telegram ho received In tho
morning was sent him by his wife In
Ohio, ami the reporter therefore Inter
jected at this point:
"Then that telegram from your wife
contained the Indianapolis summons,
did It?"
Tho big national board member
smiled broadly, but declined to answer.
Ilo declared that he expects to be back
In a day or two, but ns he wilt only
arilve at Indianapolis nt 7 o'clock this
evening-, It Is not likely that ho will re
turn befoto Friday at tho earliest.
CONFERENCE AT INDIANAPOLIS.
A fact which strengthens tho belief
that a conference is to be held at In
dianapolis Is the fact that National
Organizer Christopher Evans, who has
been In tho city during the past two
weeks, left yesterday morning. Evans
remarked to persons at tho hotel that
"he was off for headquarters," and as
Indianapolis is the recognized national
center of doings In the mine workers'
union. It was Immediately conjectured
that the Indiana city was his destina
tion. Dllcher confirmed the supposition
before leaving".
In event of a conference at Indian
apolis, It Is most likely that Ptesldent
Mitchell and District Presidents Fahy,
Nlcholls and Duffy left for It yester
day afternoon from New York, and
that the telegram received by Dllcher
yesterday morning was the announce
ment of It by tho national president.
A meeting of tho officers of tho board
of trado was bold yesterday morning
and It was decided to decline the offer
of Rev. Father Phillips, of Hazlcton.
who last week acquainted Secretary
Atherton with his project for a trip to
New York of the presidents of the
Scranton, Hazlcton and Wilkes-Barre
boards, In company with himself.
As has already been stated, the four
delegates from the anthracite districts
would meet Rlshop Potter and Arch
bishop Corrigan nt tho metropolis and
call upon J. Pletpont Morgan and en
deavor to persuade tho latter to meet
tho mine workers' olllcers. The local
board yesterday decided that In view
of tho fact that their intermediation
was asked by neither miners nor oper
ators, any such action would be mere
ly Intrusive, und particularly so when
President Mitchell' own presence in
Now York Is considered.
MORGAN WILLING.
Father Phillips called up Secretin y
Atherton over the long distance 'phono
from llazleton Monday night and in
formed him that ho had received u
special delivery letter from J. Plerpont
Morgan, responding to tho communi
cation which ho sent him last week in
forming him of the proposed visit. In
bis answer Mr. Morgan declared that
he would be delighted to meet repre
sentatives from the boards of trade,
any day this week, between the hours
of 2 und 4 o'clock in the afternoon.
Tho Hazlcton clergyman further an
nounced that he had made all arrange
ments for u meeting of tho commlttea
nt tho Astor house at 12 o'clock Wed
nesday noon.
Secretary Atherton notitlcd Father
Phillips of tho local board's action, and
yesterday afternoon the llazleton di
vine left his homo for New York.
Committeeman Dllcher received no
communication from President Mitchell
yesterday, and declared that tho story
In an afternoon paper to the effect that
the operators agreed to a conference
was an entirely suppositious one.
"Tho statement thnt I received a
' telegram from President Mitchell Is en
tirely false," ho said. "I received a
telegram this morning, It Is true, but
It was only a communication from my
wife. 'Some ono evidently jumped at
the conclusion that this was a mes
sage from Mitchell, and the conference
yarn was tho result."
EFFECT OF THE STRIKE.
William H. Logan, tho manager of
R. G. Dun & Co.'s olllce in this city,
yesterday spoke as follows with refer
ence to tho threatened mine strike:
S.r.ll.lcn l unfi.ituii.ue ill Hut. probably no

organization of tho lire department.
Each side claims to have sufficient

MAJOR INGLIS INJURED.
Struck by a Piece of Flying Coal
While Making a Tour of Inspec
tion nt Pittston.
The Inspection tour of the ulllciats of
the mining department of tho Erlo
lallroad was marred by a slight acci
dent at Pittston yesterday mornlnar,
when Superintendent W. W. Inglls, of
tho Hillside Coal and Iron company,
was struck on tho leg by a piece of
flying coal In ono of tho company'!
mines.
Tho party Included General Manager
W. A. May and Superintendent Inglli,
and they were making the first oinclal
tour or the Hillside Coal nnd Iron com
pany's property, since Captain Inglls
succeeded Captain Mny as superintend
ent of the company. Tho party was
visiting tho Uutler colliery nt Pittston.
when a couple of pound chunk of coal
was blown by a blast fifty feet, strik
ing the superintendent in the calf of
tho leg, causing u rather painful, but
not serious Injury. Genernl Manager
May gave a Tribune teportei- the fol
lowing account of the accident:
"We weto In the Chapman shaft at
the Uutlet- colliery and in one of tho
leaders, about ilfty feet from the face,
when this shot watt llrrd. A chunk of
coal was blown along the passageway
and struck Mr. Inglls In the calf of
the leg, causing some Inconvenience,
but It Is by no means a serious wound."
Medical attendance was provided at
Pittston and the leg bandaged. Tho
wounding of the superintendent, .Mr.
May declared, was purely accidental,
as It was thought the party was a.
sufltclent distance from the blast to be
out of harm's way.
MORE BRASS THIEVES.
Two West Scranton Men Arrested'on
That Charge Yesterday.
Fred Uackus and John Donavon,
both of AVcst Soranlon, were arrested

pound water column, which had been
stolen from an engine In the Lacka

cers were not satisfactory, and despite
their declinations of Innocence the two
were locked up In police headquarters.
Later they acknowledged the theft,
and said they were on their way to a.
Junk shop In Raymond court to dispose
of tho column. Previous to being over
taken by the ofllcors they had been to

the ball ground set with Spalding

by handsome launches and a great fleet
of row boats all these things render
Lodore a summer paradise.

GEORGIA OWES ITS
RAILROADS TO HIM
Paine's Celery Compound Was a Rev
' elation to E, C, Machen.
Machen Is one of tho makers of tho
new south. Ho has changed the map
of Central Georgia. Flourishing towns
havo sprung up along the railroad lines
he has developed.
Hon. Clark Howell, lit an "ilitoihil in
the Atlanta Constitution said of him:
"To tho people of Georgia, Machen Is
known principally by the roads he has
built In the south. He has brought nil
Georgia within hand-reach of Atlanta,
lit Is a public benefactor."
While at work on the Covington and
Macon railroad, Machen's health failed.
After much unless expenditure of time
nnd money he was induced by a friend
who had been cured of nervous pros
tration to try Paine's celery compound.
That the remedy was a revelation to
him no one can doubt who reads Mach
en's letter:
6!i Wall Street, New York.
Gentlem.Mi: I spent many thousands
of dollars, Including eight months
abroad, fur nervous prostration, and
then found Paine's celery compound
tlu remedy I ought to have taken at
llrst. Doctors periodically tinkered
at and patched me up so that my
nerves would hold together for a short
while, seemingly just long enough for
my bank account to get a respite.
However, your mcdlelti" has side
tracked the doctors. My nerves don't
seem to require any rest, and I am In
such good spirits these days It doesn't
matter much whether I have any bank
account or not. I hav" determined on
CAN FIX WATER RATES.
Opinion of the United States Su
preme Court, Which Has tm Im
portant Local Bearing.
The .Supremo court of the United
States handed down an opinion on
Monday, before taking tho customary
Easier recess, which establishes that
a municipality not only has the right
to fix water rates to bo charged by
companies furnish water to Its in
habitants, but can go even farther and
can reduce rates for water for city
purpose below the price contracted for
for a term of yeats.
This opinion has a most Important
local bearing, Inasmuch ns the councils
recently passed an ordinance estab
lishing water rates to bo charged by
the Scranton Gns and AA'nter company,
which" corporation, It Is generally un
derstood, will test the legality of tho
measure In the courts.
According to tho press reports of
the case and opinion tha cities of Free
port, Danville nnd Rogers Park, III.,
made contracts with water companies
to supply them with water for muni
cipal peirposes at a specified rate. The
councils of these cities later reduced
these rates by nearly fifty per cent.
The companies brought suit to compel
tho carrying out of the original con
tracts. An Illinois act of , assembly gives
cities the power to make contracts
for a period, not excetdlng thirty
years, but the Supreme court of the
state held that tho power to fix rates
for public water supply was a govern
mental function and that tho power
of council to bind tho city did not ox
tend over the llfo of tho body Itself.
The United States Supremo court
opinion was written by Janice McKen
r.a and upheld the ruling of tho Su
premo court of Illinois, declaring that
a municipality could fix water rates
In a contract and then from time to
time, as circumstances changed, regu
late these rates accordingly.
City Solicitor A'oaburg raid yesterday
that tho opinion not only reiterated
tho former decisions of the court on
the question, but went much fur
ther. "There Is no question In iny mind,"
said he, "as to tho right of a munici
pality to regulato tho price to be
charged for water, as Scranton has
recently done. This Is well established
nnd has been declared by tho United
Staifs Supremo court In several cases,
which I quoted In my opinion on the
matter submitted to council.
"The court now goes even further,
nnd declares that the terms of a con
tract entered Into with a water com
pany are not binding and can be al
tered by councils. This recognition of
council's right to alter the terms of
a water contract, also Includes a re
cognition, as a matter of course, tho
council's right to tlx certain rates.
"Von will notlco that tho four Jus
tices who dissented from tho opinion
merely dlfsented from the declaration
Paine's celery compound ns my family
lcmedy from now on.
E. C. MACHEN.
As the pioneer or a new system of
railroad building In the south, Machen
knows what It Is to live under Intense
nervous strain. Ills Joy at finding
Paine's celfiry compound a reliable
means of restoring his nervous energy
Is shown In every lino of his letter to
the proprietors of this great remedy
AVlien thousands of men and wom-n
In every walk of life, from the hum
blest to tho most famous and hon
ored, voluntarily go out of their way
to tell others the greut good Paine's
celery compound has done them: when
the ablest physicians and tho best In
formed pharmacists not only proscribe
and recommend, but themselves use
und find health In Paine's cDlery com
pound, the prof" . great demand for
the spring ren. Is not to be won
dered at.
Paine's cilery compound Is the one
real sptlng remedy known today that
never falls to benefit. It cures diseases
due to nervous weakness or a bad state
of the blood. The most wlde-awak,
Intelligent part of every community In
this country nre among Its most enthu
siastic vouchers and Indorsers.
The agreement of opinion among the
best Informed, most observant class of
people. In tho well-to-do homes of our
largest cities, as well ns In the more
frugal town communities, places
Paine's celery compound far In ad
vance of any spring remedy.
It Is, In fnct, the only spring remedy
ever hoard of In the homes of practic
ing physicians.
that tho terms of such a contract
could bp altered after Its execution.
They did not dissent from the general
ptoposltlon that a municipality can es
tablish certain binding water rates."
Tho solicitor stated that a well
known citizen had promised to bring
a test case on tho ordinance just ns
soon after April 1 as convenient.
