Tlint Lackawanna Story,
Saturday's Pittsburg Dlspatcli said
about the reported projeel to extend
the Delawate, Lackawanna and West
ern Into that city:
"The proposition to extend the Dela
ware, Lackawanna and Western rail
road Into Pittsburg, mentioned In New
York yesterday in connection with a
division of territory by the great rail
road interests, was said to be a new
one to Plttshurgers, not only of the
Citiulcl interests, but also of the Penn
sylvania. It was stated that so far the
fJoulil .syndicate had made no attempt
to plan a road to the Kast, ami that till
ihut was being done was to get a line
In from the West.
"The Could officials, however, said
that In the revolutionary whirls in
railroad circles at present anything
wits possible, although the Delaware,
Lackawanna and Western connection
was straining the possibility. The
nearest point or the Lackawanna to
Pittsburg Is at .Suubury, and connei -tlon
would necesasrlly mean a parallel
of the Pennsylvania. Should the line
be used It will probably be by way' nf
Jluffalo and through some connection
In the north.
"One of the most prominent of the
Pennsylvania olllcTills stationed In
Pittsburg, when told of the report of
the Lackawanna's Intention last night,
saltl that he considered the report ab
surd, ns tho Pennsylvania and A'audor.
hilt interests up to this time had done
nil In their power to prevent the con
summation of tho plans of .Mr. tlotild
and Mr. P.nmsoy to enter i'ltlsburg.
Ho did not think tlie policy had been
so suddenly changed."
The Anthracite Coal Trade,
Though In past years tho anthraclto
Initio has usually begun to show "mid
summer" dullness by June i, this year
a now condition prevails. The demand
for coal is remarkably strong, particu
larly from lower lake and Kastern
points, nnd prices aro as nrin as. a
There, aro rumors nf impending
changes in tho control of llio Dela
ware, Lackawanna and Western rall
joad, changes which may havo consid
erable effect f not on the coal trade,
then on the present "community nf In
terest" which controls that trade. Some,
of tho rumors are merely Wall streot
gossip, but it really looks as though
part of tho present activity In tho
Block had a better basis than rumor.
H may be that tho flotild-Harrlinan-Standarii
Oil interests aro at work.
Kememberlng what has happened in
Union Pacific and Northern Pacific, and
desirous of getting an Kastern nutlet
for tho Missouri Pacific by way of tho
Wabash, these Interests may be seek
lug control of tho Lackawanna. Lacka
wanna stock Is widely held, still with
the aid of Standard Oil Interests In the
City bank, the Moses Taylor estate, and
by purchase of the First National bank
stock with what small lots that may
be plck-jtJ ud In the present (lurry, the
ncriiilrltig of a controlling Interest
would not be iih difficult, as it looks
at first night. With aoUd-Standanl
Oil Interests In control of tho Lacka
wanna the "community of Interest"
Idea might not bo In Jeopardy, but Mr.
Morgan and Ills associates would prob
nbly lliul the "Interests" somewhat
larger than they expected.
"Trade at the bead of the lakes and
In Chicago territory shows little
change. Dtiylng- for Immediate needs
Iw naturally light. Huylng for storage
would be much brisker It the coal could
be had. The movement of coal up the
lakes Is not heavy as yet, owing partly
to the demand nt other points. De
mand at lower lake ports and In Cana
dian territory is excellent for this sea
son of the year. The present freight
rate up to the lakes from Huffnlo Is 10
cents. Along the seaboard anthracite
Is In demand. Iteeelpts nt Hoston arc

"There are some little Indications

A committee of the machinists called
011 the board of health, Saturday
morning, to demand that the paint
shops of the Lackawanna Itallroad
company, where the Imported men are
quartered, be quarantined. Dr. Allen
gave them the assurance that the mat
ter would be Investigated.
It has been reported to strike head
quarters that the work of preparing
the timber and Iron for the mine car
penters at the Continental and Relle
vue mines of the Lackawanna com
pany, which was formally done at the
car ntitl machine shops, was being done
at the Bellovue by the mine carpenters,
and It was reported that at the Conti
nental the mine carpenters would be
asked to do the same as soon as the
stock on hand Is exhausted. Action on
this matter will be taken by the coun
cil. The strikers deny the statement In
an evening contemporary of Saturday
that the tiro-pullers have made appli
cation for their old positions. Satur
day night a carload of men were
brought In from Buffalo by the Lacka
wanna company and assigned to quar
ters in the paint shop.

N employed In the Scranton station
of the weather bureau, and Local
Forecaster Clark, who has served
with the colonel for twenty years,
. The recent promotion of Louis Coer
y. from patrolman to livuenant of
police, was the reward which was but
Ills due after his splendid service of
over twenty years on the force. Lieu
tenant fioerlitu hns served longer on
the force than any other member
with the single exception of Patrol
man John Thomas. Administrations

lltr. heltl his place, because Ins Jltness
for It was recognized even by those)
mayors who have In the past seen
lit to allow politics to have a nand
In the retention or removal of police
men. Tall nnd erect, with a 1. orl'li cf
shoulder nnd a depth of cliest that
has niailo him the envy of niniiv .1
weaker man, he has been for years a
most familiar figure In the centinl
city. He has made hundreds of
friends, who swear by him, and who
will tell you, If you get into an ar
gument about the capabilities of the
police, tin t "l.oulo beats them nil."
Lieutenant ilnrllt was cast In a
kindlier mould than many police
men. Despite his splendid physlquo
and the temptations that his .strength
must hold out to "Juggle" with nu

the type of policeman who enjoys

It Is not likely that there has ever
been a labor movement In this city in
which the personality of one man so
completely domlnnted tho entire sit

cured of kidney complaint by Doan's
Kidney Pills, and I tried the treatment.
I consider them the 'best remedy for
kidney trouble on the market and t

about them. They have my endorse
