PROF. CARTER'S RECITAL.
Rare Musical Treat Afforded Large

Professor George 11. Carter, who was

Delaware, Ohio, gave a. llnlshed organ

lias assisted by Mrs. Kdward E. Chase,
soprano, and Alfred Wooler, tenor.
The programme rendered by Profes
sor Carter was a most varied one. The
.selection which wns perhaps the best
tendered was Jlarkel's celebrated Ada
gio movement in E Hat from one of
his best known sonatas. This was
played with exquisite feeling and rare
A sonorously beautiful march by
Hcotson Clarke gave Professor Carter
an opportunity to display Ids splendid
technique, while as a concluding num
ber he played a quaintly melodious
cradle song by Godard. Other selec
tions played included a trio from Booll
inan's "Suite Gothlquc" and an over
ture by Weber.
Mrs. Edward E. Chase, ihose beau
tiful voice nas so often delighted her
friends In this city, sang with great
tenderness and discrimination "Show
Me Thy Ways, Oh Lord," by Torrente,

EVANS TO GO TO COURT.
He Desires to Be Seated as Council
man from Pirst Ward.
It Is definitely known that John .1.
Evans, of the First ward, will apply
to court next week for a rule to compel
M. J. Clark to show cause why he pie
sumes to exorcise the functlonn of com
mon councilman from the First ward.
Mr. Evans' name appeared on tho
ballot at the recent election as a can
didate for the additional vacancy pro
vided for by second class city laws,
while Mr. Clark's name appeared as a
candidate for the regular vacancy, Mr.
Kvaiis seemed 1S7 votes to Mr. Clark's
:!7S, but ho was refused admission to
council on the ground that Mr. Clark
was elected to nil the regular vacancy.
. Tho contention will be niado when
the mutter is brought to the attention
of the court mat no such a thing ns
an "additional councilman" exists. It
will bo held that all the eoimcllmen
elected aro "regular councilman" and
that the one lecelvlng tho highest num
ber of votes is entitled to his seal.

TAX LEVY IS
TO BE LOWER
SCHOOL BOARS WILL OUT IT
SOWN TO ELEVEN MILLS.
This Ir Made Possible by Issuing
Bonds to Take Care of the Expense
of the Three New School Buildings
to Be Erected Suring the Coming
Summer Controllers Believe Fu
ture Generations Should Help Pay
for School Buildings Which They
Too Will Use.
The school board Is out for plaudits.
Its finance committee Is figuring on
cutting the tax levy from fourteen to
thliteeu mills. If there Is one thing
above another thing that makes a hit
with tho luxpnyer It Is tin announce
ment Hint tho tax levy Is tokbe re
duced. Each succeeding "regime" starts in
with the Intention of making this hit,
but when the committees complete
their estimates and tho finance com
mittee concludes its work of arrang
ing the budget, it Is Invariably found
that It Is impossible to make the in
tended cut. The two or three men who
voted for the victorious chairman,
under promise of securing the support
of the regime for new school houses hi
their respective wards. Insist upon the
goods being delivered, and the good In
tentions of the regime go lo smash.
Hut the present "regime" has found
a way out or the difficulty. It will
make the cut and also deliver the
goods to the two ot three who had to
get promises of goods before they
would vote for the nforementloned vic
torious chairman. The new regime wlfl
Two eight-room and one four-room
buildings are to be erected. School
buildings cost about $2,r,00 a room.
This means an expenditure of $50,000.
By the time the bond measure is ready
for passage :i few other necessities will
hB.ve come to view aud will be taken
care of. This will likely run tho Is-uie
up to .$im,000.
WILL GET THE VOTES.
There will be a safu majority for the
bond issues, as a number of controllers
outside of the eleven who controlled
the oiganization are of the opinion that
the pie.sent generation has paid Its
share of school building tax, and that
as school buildings do not have to be
duplicated every generation, it Is no
more than right that future genera
tions should be called upon to contrib
ute something in advance.
Last year the budget was made up of
items amounting to $31G,000. This year's
budget, as It stands now. amounts to
$342,470. This, however, is to be pared
down about $1,",000. when the llnance
committee meets on Monday evening to
prepare its report for the board. As
the estimates now stand, the budget Is:

It is necessary to set aside one and
one-half mills tor sinking fund pur
poses, so thai If a thirteen mill levy
Is decided upon, eleven and one-half
mills is all that can be devoted to
general purposes. On a valuation ot
$-'3,500,000 this would make a revenue
of $270,250. A little over three per cent,
must be allowed for exonerations and
commissions. This woul'd leave the
amount available for city purposes at
about $260,000. Tho state appropria
tion will be $77,000. The total revenue
therefore would bo $337,000.
If there were no school houses to
build this revenue would nicely meet
the contemplated expenditures of the
coming year, and the $9,000 deficit from
last year, But the school bouses nre
to bo built and a bond Issue In conse
quence is Inevitable.

MUTINY IN A TROLLEY CAR
Passengers Refused to Obey Orders
of Conductor and What Hap
pened as a Result.
Theie was a very exciting time In one
of the Scranton Railway company's
Green nidge cars last evening on the
siding at New York street.
About ti o'clock the running of cars
becomes uncertain because of tho
heavy travel nnd Hunted number of
ears. The schedule becomes disar
ranged and it Is the custom to transfer
the passengers from one car to un
other on some siding to straighten
things out. Tills, for the patrons of
the road, is very much of a nuisance.
Last evening the usual crowd was
waiting. Forty-five was the number of
passengers registered. The trip was
very slowly made to New York street
and the suburbanites realized that it
was going to be the same old "Change
cars, pleas?," and, whispering togeth
er, they determined "to Insist on being
carried on that particular car to Green
Jtidge. The conductor Insisted, the
suburbanites persisted. Neither side
would give in. A few ladles left Ihe
car. lrightened tit the "awful saucy"
way some of the men talked to Iho
conductor. Finally the conductor got
through sputtering and said he'd be
"blistered" If be was going to stay
there all night and started back to
Then were eleven good men and
true and one woman who stayed right
with him on the burning deck.
When half wny back he went to col
lect fares fumi his passengers.
Tho gang lefused.
The conductor said: "Pin sorry, but
If you don't pay I'll have to stop the
car and put you off."
The elf ven men suggested that he
go right ahead; it would help vary the
monotony of the long ilde they wete
having to Green lildge.
"Well, if I can't do it I'll get a police
man," said the icsoureeful conductor.
Again the crowd merely scoffed and
suggested that be bad better get more
This brave conductor realized at last
that ho was a man witli an elephanUon
his bands, and went back to the office
When he had told his sad story the
"Why, you gibbering Idiot, when you
were up against a crowd like that why
didn't you run out to Green Ttldgo and
dump 'em. Go down now and run wild
cat. Don't stop for anything until you
get rid of 'em. The way the people are
acting around here makes me tired.
That's wihat we got for having round
wheels on the cars. If you had one of
tho cars with the eight-sided wheels
they'd have been glad to get off any
where." He knew whereof he spoke.
WORDS AND THEIR RELATIONS.
Address by Superintendent Howell
in the High School.
Superintendent George Howell deliv
ered a very Interesting and highly en
teitalning lecture nt the high school
yesterday morning on words and spell
ing. Mr. Howell explained that he had
been actuated to address tho students
by certain grave charges that have
been made, reflecting upon the spelling
ethics of the scholars. An examination
made by himself, ho said, resulted very
satisfactory. The freshman class ot
the commercial department had nu av
erage of DO while the old class aver
aged SO and a fraction.
The etymology, history and develop
ment of words were described at
length. To bo a good speller, the su
perintendent said, three things were
essential, a good eye, a good ear and a
genuine lovo for tho study of words.
Of especial Interest were his remarks
on the relation of words.
