THE PARK FOUNTAIN
STIRS UP TALK
The Councilman Discuss Nothing
Else but How to Oet Around the
Question of Avoiding the Install
ing of Another Metor What They
Havo to Say.
When you meet a Carbondale coun
cilman these days, the topic that he Is
most llkelv to discuss with oti Is the
question of the meter that the Consoli
dated Water company wants to Install
to measure the water that will pass
through the water fountain In front of
Memorial park. The councilman will
not hesitate to argue this matter, een
If the heat be blistering, nnrt he Is.
likely to fieller himself of opinions
that will rival the weather man's hot
As stated In this column last week, It
Is the Insistence of the water company
In the order for an additional meter
that has kindled the tire of indignation.
The water company won't brook the
suggestion of allowing the water to
flow through the fountain In question
without a'metei, and the councllmen
fall to see any good tea.son for not al
lowing the meters that do service at
the other fountain", one at either end
of the city, be the guides for comput
ing the cost of the park fountain. These
fountains cost $10 to maintain them
last year, and If this could be taken
as a basis for the park fountain, then
the expenre of Installing .1 meter,
about $25, would be avoided. The sl7e
of the pipe is the same in nil of 'ie
fountains, and It Is leasonable to
Mime, the councllmen argue, that r
more water would pass thtough the
fountain in front of the park than
either of the othets. The water com
pany thinks differently. It holds that
there's likely to he a difference of pres
sure that would make a difference In
the quantity of water parsing from the
fountain, hence its Insistence about the
Another phase of the muddle that
disturbs the councllmen and Is the
means of their waxing warm is the big
difference between the combined ex
pense of the park fountains and the
other fountains. The fountain at the
lower end of the city cost $40, last year.
The fountain in the park and the foun
tain outside of the rarft cost $156,
nearly four times as much, though the
pipe of the latter, It Is claimed, la
smaller by an elchth of nn Inch What
Is more puzzling to the councllmen Is
that the waste water from the park
fountain Is what supplied the fountain
outside, but notwithstanding this the
cost, or expense, was four times as
murh as tho fountains In the other
parts of the cltv, wheie the pipe, it Is
claimed, Is larger. This is what dis
turbs the urbinlty of the councllmen
and causes them to be greatly wrought
up these warm days
THE FAIR STORE ENTERED
Youthful Thieves Climb Through nn
Inviting Open Window and Get at
tho Cash Drawer, Which Was
Opened The Police Investigating.
The "Fair." the novelty store on
North Main street, was entered by
burglars, presumably bojs, some time
Sunday night or early vosterdny morn
ing. Entrance was gained by piling
boxes on top of each other until there
were fnough to reach a window which,
the police say, was open. The manner
in which entrance was effected lead
the police to believe that bovs were
the ones who visited the place, it is
not believed, however, that It was
small boys, but ones who ate of a good
After gaining entrance the lads made
for the cash drawer, which they broke
open. There was no money before
them, the proprietor having wisely
placed it in a safer place, where the
thieves could not get at it. It was
money that the visitors were after, for
- there were two mileage books in the
drawer which were not taken. The
proprietor did not miss any articles
taken from the store's stock, though it
is possible that some small articles
were carried off, but not In a quantity
or number to be missed.

Liko tho Happening at Jermyn a
Fow Weeks Ago, Car Leaves the
Rails While Moving Along a
Straight Track Strikes Against a
Polo, Which Snaps Off Close to tho
Ground Passengers Shook Up,
but No One Injured.
Tho street car accident at Jermyn, a
few weeks ago, was duplicated last
night, but on a smaller scale, vjien a
north-bound car, due here about S
o'clock, left the rails, while proceeding
along a straight track, Just south of
the power house nt Mayfleld, and
ploughed Into a pole, which it caused
to snap off a foot or so above the
ground. The passengers had a fortun
ate escape from Injuries, though they
were pretty well shaken up and showed
signs of disturbed nervous s stems
after the rommotlon was over.
Like the .Teimyn happening, last
night's accident occurred while the ear
was moving along a straight track,
clear of switches and frogs. It would
appear that the car left tho rails be
cause of a depression in the roadbed,
of which there are any number be
tween Peckvllle nnd Forest City, and
which ate the means of causing the
cars on this end of the Scranton Ball
way companv's lines, all but a few of
which have only single tracks, to rock
like a stotm-tossed ship nt sea. The
car, when It left the talis, ploughed
Into 'i pole, which supported the com
pany's feed wire. The pole was strong
and stout, but tho fotce of the collis
ion, due in a measurp to the speed of
the car, broke the pole off nt the base.
The singular spectacle was then wit
