Two Suits for $30,000 Damagea.
Suit was yesterday begun by Daniel
C. AVesthrook, of Brooklyn, Susque
hanna county, to recover ifi.'.OOO dam
ages for the death of his son, who was
killed in the collision near Xebo church,
in Jtendhtim, last summer.
Mr. Westbrook'.s son was the motor
man on the outbound car. His car
rounded the curve at that point and
was about to swing on to tho straight
lino when an Inbound car loomed up in
front of lilm. He had time to jump
and save his life, but he stuck to his
post heroically, doing all that lay In
ills power to avert the collision. Tho
other car, deserted by Its crew, crashed
into his car and pinioned him in the
wreckage. He died that night from in
ternal Injuries. lOloven passengers were
more or less Injured, but had it not
been for the heroic efforts of West
brook in slackening the speed of his
car iis much as he did, the collision
would lmvu been much more forcible,
and more than one fatality would
doubtlessly have been recorded,
The accident was caused by hoys
tampering with the .switch signals. Tic
company is alleged' to have been guilty
of negligence in falling to provide
switch signals which could not ho so
lendlly tampered with.
Attorneys D. n. Alney, of Mont
rose, and O. A. Van Wornter, of this
city, represent tho plaintiff.
Through Attorney Ralph I.. hevy, Jo
seph Mukutski, of Prlceburg, brought
suit against tho Scranton Itullwny
company for J.'.OnO damages for per
sonal Injuries, Tho plaintiff alleges
that on .Ixiiio 5. last, ho boarded a car
at the corner of Ponn avenue and Mul
berry street, to go to his home In
rrirohurg, I'pou Inquiry from the con
ductor ho learned that he was on the
wrong car, and he asked that the car
should bo stopped until ho could get
off. The conductor Insisted on hlni get
ting off while the car was in motion,
and when he refused tho conductor, so
he says, pushed him from the platform.
Ho fell violently to the ground and
sustained Injuries that lie claims will
disable him permanently.

FORMAL TRANSFER MADE
Cliff Street Shops Aro Now the Prop
erty of tho American Loco
Tho fcrnic' transi.r of the Cliff
street locomotive shops of the Dick
son Manufacturing' company took
place Thursday afternoon, and It Is
expected that within a few days rep
resentatives of the American Locomo
tive company, the mammoth combine
which now owns tho works, will ar
rlrvo in the city and take possession.
Thursday the company was repre
sented hy proxy, Its side of the tran
saction being bundled by A. 13. Flet
cher, vice president of the Dickson
Mnnufootmlng contpany. The pur
chase ninny was paid ovei to the
Dickson company, and nil deeds, titles
of possession, books, etc., were .sur
rendered to the combine. The price
for which tho works were sold cannot
bo yet ascertained, as the Dickson
people refuse to give nut nny infor
mation on that point. They claim that
It has not been made public, so far,
to even the stockholders, the board of
directors alone being cognizant ot
tlie exact terms and they having rati
fied tho sale.
It Is not likely that under the new
regime there will be any radlcnl
changes In the active operation of the
shops, but of course nothing definite
will be known of this, until the ar
rival of the American company's rep
resentatives next week. Superin
tendent C. A. Delaney will most proh
ably bo retnined to direct the shops,
as he has proven himself in every
particular a man well equipped for
the position. He has gained the re
spect and personal admiration of the
eight hundred men under hint nnd
since he became superintendent tho
quantity and quality of tho annual
output has given the shops an inter
national reputation for high grade

A GALA NIGHT
NEW CLUB ROUSE OF BELIEF
Thi Was Preceded hy a Parade of
Former Voluntoer Firemen of the
City The Fitting! of the Club
House Passed All Expectations,
Description of the Booms and
Thoir Appointments Public Moot
ing to Be Soon Held Officers of
The former volunteers, who up to a.
few weeks ngo constituted the fire de
partment of this city, opened their new
club house, on Spruce street, lust night
In a blazo of glory. There was a pa
rade of the volunteer companies, wit
nessed by thousands, and a general ex
change of handshakes and good-fellowship
at the club house.
Tho parade, which was probably the
Inst In which the volunteers ns a, body
will participate, started from the Nay
Aug Knglnc house, on Franklin avenue,
promptly nt 8 o'clock. It was headed
by Chief Engineer F. W. Zlzelmann,
who inarched In front of tho Lawrence
band of thirty pieces. Fallowing the
hand came n delegation nf tho perma
nent men of the department, who hnvo
supplanted the volunteers. A number
of carriages, containing President John
Molr and the other officers of tho Fire
men's Relief association, nnd some of
the older volunteers, came next. Con
spicuous among the old firemen was
Charles Corless. aged seventy-three
years, of the C'olumhlas, who has been
n member of that company since. 1ST",
and who Is the oldest fireman In tho
FRANKLINS AT THH HhD
The first company In line was the
Franklin, of West Scranton, headed by
the Sons of Veterans' Drum corps. The
Columhlas, In their fawn-colored uni
forms, followed, headed by the Patri
otic Order Sons of America Drum
corps. Next came small delegations
from the Cumberland, Liberty, Ex
celsior, Niagara, General Phinney, Cen
tury. Relief nnd Engle companies.
The old hand engine, presented to the
association some years ago, was drawn
by the Nny Aug Engine company,
whose drum corps followed, bending
the Crystal boys and tho members of
the Neptune company. The members
of the Hook and Ladder company, each
carrying a red light and headed by tho
Ringgold band, came behind the Nep
tunes. Bauer's Thirteenth regiment band
headed the William Connell company,
which brought up the rear of the pro
cession, followed by the apparatus of
the central city companies. The lino
of march was laid over the principal
streets in the central part of the city
and ended at the club house on Spruce
street, between Franklin nnd Ponn
avenues, where the parade was dis
banded. The firemen flocked up stairs to the
club rooms, which have boon kept
closed to all but the officers of the as
sociation during the weeks of prepara
tion, and which were thus viewed by
tho general public for the first time.
The members of tho board of direc
tors, who have had 'the work of prep
aration In charge can well feel proud
of what they have accomplished, for
It Is very questionable If any club In
the city can boast of as cozy and ns
prettily furnished quarters ns the ex
volunteer firemen of this city now
have. This was the general expres
sion of opinion among 'the visitors last
night, all of whom were forced to ad
mit that the old maxim had been re
versed nnd that tho joys of realization
exceeded tho joys of anticipation, in
stead of vice versa,
OCCUPY THREE FLOORS.
Tho three upper floors of the four
story building ait 221 Spruce street aro
occupied by tho association. The sec
ond floor has been fitted up ns a par
lor, reception and reading room. The
walls and ceiling are decorated la deli
cate tints with panels In mural designs.
The carpet is a deep red and the fur
niture Is upholstered In the same color.
There Is an elegant upright piano In
the room nnd a number of expensive
pieces of furniture from several of the
Tho third floor is fitted up ns a pool
and billiard room. Tho prevailing col
or is green, the walls being tinted that
color and tho carpet also. There aro
two tables, one a pool nnd the other
a billiard with cue racks and all the
other necessary paraphernalia for tho
playing of these games.
The fourth floor is fitted up as a
meeting room with seats and a raised
platform for the chairman. A number
ot tho companies, which will retain
their individual organisation, will hold
regular meetings In this room, which
Is to bo fitted up as a gymnasium in
the near future. In the rear of this
floor are two well appointed shower
baths and a lavatory.
Scattered throughout the three
floors are a number of relics, which
have ben treasured by tho several
companies for years and which have
new been donated to the association.
There are also scores upon scores of
pictures, which form a photogrophla
history of the volunteer tiro depart
ment of the city, and which are well
worth a close study.
