Convention of Master Builders.
The convention of tho master car
builders-, which i-uino to an end Wed
nesday in Saratoga, is reported to
have been one of tho most successful
sessions of lis kind over hold. A
very largo number of delegates were
piesent and it' was their unanimous
sentiment that the convention was in
all respects one of tho most enjoy
nblc of the thirty-live annual ses
sions which have marked tho history
of tlic association.
Of tho thirty-live, eight have been
held at Saratoga, and it Is likely that
next year's convention will bo also
held there. Tlic session's doings are
purely of a business nature. No at
tention is paid to strikes, or any labor
agitation, hut the delegates merely
devote themselves to formulating na
tional rules and attending to strictly
technical matters. The business ses
sions were held from 0 to o'clock
dally anil the remainder of tho day
was given over to pleasure.
Various mechanical exhibits were
open for inspection, long drives taken
and balls held. Master Huilder Can
Held, of the Lackawanna, was among
those in attendance and played an
important part in the convention. Ho
was appointed upon a number of Im
portant committees. .). ,1, Hennessey,
of the Chicago, .Milwaukee and St.
Paul railroad, was elected president
of the association.
Canfiold Has Not Resigned.
Master Car Builder U T. Cantleld.
of tho Delaware, Lackawanna and
"Western company, yesterday denied
that there arc any grounds for the
rumor which has been Industriously
circulated recently to the effect that
he has resigned from the Lackawanna
and accepted a position with a west
ern railroad. Said Mr. Cantleld to a
"I like the Lackawanna, road and
its officials, and I am going to stay
with them just as long as tliey are
satisfied with my work, As for my
having accepted a better place out
west, why thero not a railroald
position in tho country which could
Induce nvi to leave my present berth,"
May Not Bo Rebuilt.
Tho breaker of the Delaware and
Hudson destroyed by tiro near Mast
Knd on "Wednesday will not be re

No. 5 .shaft and breaker, which serves
tho same workings as tho Baltimore,
will bo rushed. This. Is midway be
tween tho Baltimore and Parsons, A
new steel tower will bo erected over
tho Baltimore Mhaft and the shaft will
be rebuilt. Tho machinery and ma
terial are already at hand ami tho
unrk can bo completed in good time.
ubout tho only thing saved was
tho largo hoisting engine, This, al
though subject to the Intense heat,
was only slightly damaged. The loss
Is greater than at first estimated, and
It will amount to $15U,000. Wilkes

W. C. Hope, who was chief clerk to
H. P. Haldwln on the Central Railroad
of New Jersey for many years, has
been appointed assistant general pas
senger agent to c. M. Hurt, who suc
ceeded Mr. Baldwin upon the hitter's
Utiles councils take action at onco
the majority of tho fire houses In the
city will be without telephones. There
was no provision made this year in the
appropriation ordinance for any
phones In any of the flro houses be
cause the eouncilmon labored under
the delusion that the twenty-seven
telephones which the Lackawanna
Telephone company agreed to furnish
the city could bo stretched out to
Include the whole lire department.
The larger part of these twenty
seven 'phones were eaten up In the
Municipal building where one was
placed in nearly every office. Tho
only flro companies which secured now
'phones were the Kagles, Kxcelsor's
General Phinoys, Hook and Ladders
and the William Connells.
Director of Public Safety "Wormser
has notified the Central Pennsylvania
Telephone company to take Its 'jihones
out of tho following fire houses be
cause there is no money to pay for
them; Nay Augs, Crystals, Pheonlx,
Niagaras, Reliefs, Cutuberlands, Col
unibias, Ncptunes, Centurys, Frank
lins and Excelsiors. Ho is greatly
impressed with the necessity of having
a telephone in every tire house, especi
ally those In the central part of tho
city, where a still alarms is often turn
ed in over the wire. He has conimun
cated with select council on the sub
ject and the question has been referred
to tho lire department committee
of thai branch for consideration.
The bunk and call mon of tho flro
department, who have now effected a
permanent organization, will meet
some night next week to consider the
question of securing their pay at regu
lar intervals. Director Wormser has
left the matter entirely in their hands
and whatever they decide he will abide
by. Tho majority of the men seem to
favor receiving their pay every three
months, or four times a year and It is
very probable that this will be decid
Tho oily has now purchased for
about ?l,00o as much of the furniture
and fittings in the several flro houses
as It desires. Director Wormser has
decided to purchase linoleum for tho
upper floors of tho larger number of
the houses and has received bids from
a number of linns. Tho contract is to
be awarded In a few days. Linoleum
has been given tho preference over
carpet on nccount of Its hotter wear
ing qualities and because It is con
sidered by sanitarians to be much
healthier than carpet in rooms which
are much used, as it collects no dust,
The promise made when the flro de
partment was ro-organlzod that when
over a vacancy in tho ranks of tho
permanent men nccurod It would bo
tilled from among tho hunk and call
men has been fulfilled during the past
week in tho appointment of John
Huether to succeed l-'rcd Kaeppcl as
permanent man at tho Neptune Knglnc
company, Reuther was a bunk man
ami secured tho appointment without
any of tho who pulling which was
formerly required to secure a place as
Another r.00 feet of the 1,500 feet of
hose recently purchased by the city has
been received, accepted, measured and
stored in the Nay Aug engine house,
but has not yet been given nut to any
of the companies. This makes 1,000 feet
Which has already been received
This fact, it Is believed, will lead the
;nminnu council to refuse to pass the
resolution adopted by select council on
Thursday night, providing for a ie
advertisement not only for bids for
hose but also for tho flro engine and
hook and ladder truck recently eon
When goods are once received and
accepted by a party to a contract It Is
generally a pretty hard matter to get
the other party to take them back
without a lawsuit, and the latter is
just what tho conservative members of
council desire to avoid, contending that
It will hold up the Improvement of tho
fire department for nil Indefinite period.
The toop floor of the now club house
of tho Firemen's Relief association, on
Spruce street, is to bo converted Into
a gymnasium In a few weeks. A row
ing machine, a horizontal bar, parallel
bars, Indian clubs anil dumb-bells are
to be Insualled. There are already two
finely eqii'l'I10'1 shower baths on this
Ijoor, which can be used to udvantngo

Cake athletic exercise.

All Hip rooms In the armory have
been completely furnished and are

Save tho apartment assigned to tho
non-cnmmlsslonod staff, which Is still
In an embryonic condition. And these
same rooms aro something of which
the regiment can well be proud.
In hist Saturday's military column
of the Tribune thero appeared com
ment upon various of the company
rooms mid their distinguishing feat
ures. However, to the casual ob
server there Is also a large number
of Interesting spectacles In the rooms
of the nlllcers and the various other
apartments, The rooms of Major
Frank Robllng, commander of the
Third Hatalllon Is located on the sec
ond floor, and possessscs particular
Interest to visitors, seeing tho sights
of tho magnificent building,
The apartment's furnishings aro
characterized by modest simplicity nnd
good tasto and look every Inch the
rooms of the soldier. A few grim look
ing weapons are displayed about the
room, several of Christy's soldier
panels, and a few other pictures com
bine In relieving the stern rigor of the
room. Lieutenant-Colonel StiUwell's
room Is another splendidly nranged
apparlmont and tho same Is to be
said of Colonel Wattes- room, and
those of the other regimontal officers.
The basement Is nut yet furnished
however, and the soldier boys are
rather grieved on the whole that they
cannot yet utilize all the advantages
which will be later contained in this
part of tho building. The gymnasium
has not yet been furnished nor the
bowling alleys built, and both of these
athletic Holds aro being eagerly an
ticipated by the military athletes,
The first member of tho Thirteenth
regiment to be seen In the summer
uniform was Captain Dolph P. Ather
ton, regimental adjutant. It was at
Monday night's drill of the first bat
talion that ho made his appearance
clad In the snug fitting, cool looking
suit, which bears a strong resemblance
to the khaki uniform, worn during
the war and since, in active service.
He was the only man on the floor
wearing anything but the ordinary
blue uniform and he received quite an
ovation when first sighted.
The entire regiment has been fitted
with these suits and they will be the
only stylo garb worn during camp.
The innovation Is a sensible one and
meets with universal approval. The
uniforms aro of a light 'brown canvas,
and much more comfortable during tho
warm weather than the soldier's usual
garb. They ar" worn with loggings
and campaign hats and give a jaunty
and natty apeparance to the posses
sors. Tho battalion drills inaugurated
Monday and Tuesday night will bo
continued during next week and will
bo steadily repeated until camp Is
reached. The batallinn commanders
have resolved that the regiment shall
make n good showing and brigade In
spection, and it Is by incessant drill,
and that alone the desired results In
soldierly precision can be obtained.
Company F. is attaining an enviable
reputation In the regiment for good at
tendance and drills. On three nights
last month the company turned out
one hundred per cent of its enrollment
to take part in tho ordinary weekly
drill. Tho F. men take a big pride in
their company and every thing con
nected with It ns is evidenced in a
measure by the care, and ithought
which characterized the furnishing of
their room sit the now armory nnd
makes it one of tho cosiest, most
cheerful and best equipped apartments
in the building.
Major Frank Robllng will put the
Third battalion through a rigid drill,
guard mount and dress parade Mon
day night at the armory, The reg
imental band will be in attendance,
A meeting of the nlllcers of the
regiment was hold Tuesday night at
tho armory after the drill of tho
Third brigade, ami arrangements for
tho coming camp freely discussed. A
number of tho smaller details were
adjusted. It was also decided at the
meeting to enlist the band up to
thlrty-threo pieces as compared with
twenty-two which is the present num
ber of musicians. Chief Musician
Robert 'Rimer expressed his confidence
in his ability to easily raise them from
the ranks of skilled local musicians.
Tjillcing about the band reminds
ono that that same band hail what
was far from a pleasant experience
as a result of their non-appearance at
tho armory, Friday, Juno 21, when
tho presentation of inarksmens' medals
took place and a review of tho regi
ment was to have been made by Col,
C. Dow Dougherty of tho Ninth regi
ment, acting commander of tho Third
Brigade. Colonel AVatres' Indignation
was more than aroused at tho band's
calm contempt for orders nnd for
a while there was talk of reducing Its
lender to the ranks and- arranging
every member before Lieutenant Col
onel F. W. Htlllwell In a court martial,
Matters were dually adjusted, how
ever, and Sergeant Rauor's written
apology appeared In tho dally papers.

It is no secret that the Kaeltcn Pianofoite school,

"The Illlihon She Wore" is the title of a song
and chorus by (Jeorgc M. Vickeis, jut issued
by the Faikview Publishing company, of Phila
delphia. The theme appears to be of the class
that haic achieved popularity of late. It hinges
upon a piece of ribbon which no doubt has an
odor nf hair oil llugciing about it. 'Ilia chorus
Is as follows :
Love fiom heie eyes is beaming;
She is pure :ind fair.
I'll keep this bit of libbon till me meet,
Because I know she woie it in her hair.
Although slightly tangled in the ejes of an ex
pert upon tho iiieasuie of poetic feet, the senli.
mint seems of a popular vein, and Ihe music ac
companying, while fnmt-wh.it "iciuiniscint," Is
not so bad. "Ihe llihhou She Won-," icndcied
