A PATHETIC CASE.
The Widow of John Splker, Who
Was Killed in the Northwest Mine,
Victim of Immigration Laws.
A case tilled with pathetic fentuies
came from the village of Simpson.
A few- mouths ago, about April 1, John
Splker, a laborer In the Northwest
mine, mot a terrible death by being
crushed under a mountain of coal unit
roclc. About thut time he was expect
Ing his wife from her home In far
orf Austria, and It was thought that
she was near Xew York city the day
he met with disaster. The, funeral was
delayed so that Mrs. Splker could
see her dead husband before he was
laid away, but she failed to arrive
'for several days after bis death, and
supposing thut she bad not sailed on
the day she named, and no other word
having been received from her, the fu
neral ceremony was carried out and
Splker was burled iu the local ceme
tery. yesterday friends of Splker were
saddened by a letter which ciitnr- from
Mrs. Splker in Xew York city. It was
addressed to her husband, which in
dicated that she was wholly Ignorant
of his death. The letter said she was
iu distress In New York city, and
asked her husband for "God's sake" to
come to her aid.
The pitiful news wrung the hearts of
Splker's surviving countrymen, and
two of them, the president nnd secre
tary or the beneficial society to which
he belonged, hastened to Xew York
tu relieve Mrs. Splker and comfort her
as best they could in her sadness and
distress. What has caused her deten
tion, Mrs. Splker does not indicate,
hut it. is supposed that it Is the opera
tion of tile Immigration laws that Is
responsible for the poor woman's luck
less experience so soon after reaching
the country where sin- longed to .--co
and to be reunited to her husband.
WHY THE CIRCUS DIDN'T COME.
Too Expensive for the Wallace Show
to Haul Their Wagons to and
from Alumni Park.
It was announced several weeks ago
that the Wallace shows, which are to
appear In Scranton soon, would also
hold forth in this city, hut when the
town was billed a week ago, announc
ing the performances at Scranton, it
called forth inquiries as to the prom
ised exhibitions for this place. It bus
been learned that there are two rea
sons for the circus people cutting Cnr
bondale from Its route. One reason is
that there was no suitable ground di
rectly iu the city or one large enough
to accommodate the tents, and second
ly, that the railroad company refused
to sidetrack the circus cars at or near
Alumni park In the event of that
ground being secured.
Alumni park is the only suitable
ground hereabouts, but if the cars
could not ho stopped or sidetracked
near the grounds, it would mean too
great a haul of the heavy circus
wagons to and from this city. The
railroad companies refused to accom
modate the circus people to this ex
tent, and Carbondalc was left without
