Simon Cisco Causes Arrest of Two of
His Neighbors Whom He Fears.
There was n lively time in the seltle
nieiit about the Last Chance workings
on Thursday night, when two of the
residents stirred up excitement by
stoning the house of Simon Cisco,
against whom the accused pair, George
Sullska and Jacob Santos, held a
grudge because of his hailing from a
different county than themselves.
This is the story that Cisco told Al
derman Atkinson, when he came for a
warrant for their arrest. Santos and
Sallska were unfriendly to him since
they argued some time ago about their
respective birthplaces. On the night of
the trouble, Cisco continued, the ac
cused came home intoxicated and In a
boisterous and quarrelsome mood. They
taunted and jibed at him and followed
this with a volley of stones, which fell
In piofiision, not unlike raindrops in a
spring shower. After exhausting their
volley of missiles, Santos ami Sallska
charged on the house, and after break
ing the door, tore it from its fasten
ings. Another volley came next a vol
ley of threats and after the alleged
disturbers retreated, Cisco hied to Al
derman Atkinson's oflk-o to secure jus
tice, but more particularly to have' his
neighbors secured.
Two charges were laid against San
tos and Sallska, malicious mischief and
threats to kill. The warrants weie
given to Constable .Moran. who tnnk-
ibe accused before the alderman. After
the hearing, the pair were hold in bail j
t'i await the action of tlio grand Jury's
action. Friends of the pair hurried l
'"i .mi me security, nut were un
ible .to locale bondsmen. Santos and v. ere accordingly taken to the
county jail by Constable Moran.
Later, Saliska's wife entered a coun
ter charge. She averred that Cisco,

Thrilling Event, to Be Described by
Miss Miranda Croucher at M. E.
Miss Miranda Croucher will speak in
liie .Methodist Episcopal church of tills
ilty next Sunday morning. Her vis:;
to this place is of great ir.ii.Most. Sin
was in the siege of Pekln, and bo.
story, of il is thrilling.
The following Is from a ret cut ar
ticle by her:
Two letters In tin- strange Chinese
characters lie belore inc. They were
received a month ago. One Is from a
preacher in our Hsuiihuo district, the
other from a former servant in our
mission. They are strangely alike in
that they contain a list of the names
of those who wcie known to us all, and
after each name (lie sentences read
like this: "Ho was stoned to death,"
"lie was cut in pieces.
'He was quar
tered," "She was beheaded and her
headless body exposed," "Ills wife
killed herself to escape outrage,"
"Those girls have been made slaves,"
"My family hid in the mountains."
"She was burned, "The lamily were
thrown into orison ami lands and
crops confiscated, and homes looted,"
"Every Christian village In the dis
trict is destroyed and those who 'have
been killed are not a few." One of
these letters ends with a plea that Dr.
Terry and 1 should pray for God's
church" that peace may soon come,
and the other that we should pray for
the "people of China," thai they soon
may have peace, oil. it is heartbreak
ing for one who knew Ihese people to
read these letters! I could take my
1'ilde mid write tlic names of our na
tive Christians In China over against
every form of torture and suffering
mentioned in that eleventh chapter of
The New Bridge Over Kacket Brook
Practically Completed.
A most acceptable improveineiil one
that will be fully appreciated Is tlic
new iron bridge over the Kacket brook
that has just been completed.
Contractor Mornu has completed the
concrete on one side ot the street car
tracks, and so soon as the cement and
stories bciome llrinly set, so as to oIIjw
teams to puna over tile new roadway,
tlic force of men will be put to work
on the other side.
Tile Improvement has wrought a dc
siruhlo change in that locality. The
street car tiueks are removed to tlio
west side, and while the roadway on
that side is somewhat narrower, It will
meet every demand, as heretofore
theie was only one driveway over the
bridge instead of two, as now.
Whin the sidewalks will have been
laid and lonnectel, the appearance of
the work will be d cidedly enhanced.

The Wellsbnch Lighting Company's
Lamps Will Be Put In Operation
Thy lumps of the Welsbnoh Street
Ligh'tlng cnniDun.v, which the Carbon
dale Uos company hopes to have super
sede the arc- lights hoVln use, will be
placed In service tonight at six points
In the city, In order lo demonstrate
111011' elllcleiiey before the muni burs of
the councils and the citizens generally.
The lamps, which Superintendent
Ouerln of the company has erected,
arc located at tlic following places:
Corner Lincoln avenue and Terrace
slreel, corner Lincoln avenue and
Washington street. Washington place,
end of Wyoming street, corner Terrace
iitn et and Jirook avenue, corner Ninth
avenue and Spring street.
Thu lamps will be lighted this even
ing and will remain lighted each even
ing until after the opening of the bids
for street lighting which will tuko
place before council committee on Mon
day evening, May IS and as long
thereafter as the company deems 111.
A wide Interest has been aroused
over the proposed lighting contract,
which councils will let on the night
mentioned, and there has been a varied
discussion as lo which will give the
better service, tlio present arc lights or
the new idea of gas Illumination em
bodied in the Welsbneh invention. The
Carbondale (ius company, through
Superintendent Cuorin, claims that a
better quality of light and a better dis
tribution will follow the use or the
Welt-bach lamps, and nt no increased
eosl over tlio arc light, and it is anx
ious to demonstrate this claim through
the exhibition or test which will be
eumiuencod tills evening. The points
selected for the tests were chosen with
a view to best determine the elllcleiiey
of the litmus, and an Inspection and
comparison arc courted.
These lamps are in operation in many
of I lie largest cities of the country, and
yesterday Superintendent Giierln re
ceived a. letter from the Welsbach
Lighting company telling of the adop
tion of their lamps by a Luxerne coun
ty town.
This part of the letter is as follows:
"Last Thursday we knocked out tlic
electric light company at Nanticoke.
They had llfty-nine arc lights at sev
enty dollars and thirty thirty-two
candle-power lights at twenty dollars.
Our contract is for 12G Welsbach lights
at tlilrly-two dollars per light per year.
We will have the lights in operation
Satin day night next."
