THE BROTHER WON OUT.
Jacob Compton Secure! Possession of
His Brother's Body.
Tai'nb Compton. the brother of the
late Cornelius Compton, who died at
the Moses Taylor hospital on Mon-
ilny, stole a num'h on tho dead man's
divorced wife and her son yesterday
mornlnc and secured possession o the
dead man's body.
Throiish his attorney, K. C. New
comb, be applied for and secured let
ters of administration for his dead
brother's estat" and upon presenting
these to t'nde alter Price, the latter
placed himself 1 1 Ills disposal. Claude
Kdwards, son of the dead man, was
considering tho advisability of having
a guardian appointed yesterday and
then applying for letters of adminis
tration, but while he was considering,
the dead man's brother was doing, and
the latter came out the winner.
The funeral will bo held this after
noon at U.liO o'clock from Price's un
dertaking establishment, on North
Washington avenue, and interment
will be made In family plot In tho
An Impression that might bo gained
fioni tho leports In yesterday's papers
that there was n question to young
Kdwards claiming to being Compton's
son Is on erroneous one. It was sim
ply a case of where no one at hand
knew him or anything about his claim.
Ho Is called Kdwards, because lie lives
with his mother, who assumed hoV
maiden name, but he, himself, uses
the name of Kdwards. He and his
father were on friendly terms, nnd
visited one another frequently.
THE FIREMEN ARE
NEARLY ALL BACK
Almost All the Mines Were Started
Up Some of tho Hillside Com
pany's Firemen Lose
The striking stationary firemen In
this valley, with very few exceptions,
reported for work yesterday morning
In accordance with the order issued
on Monday night, and as a. consequence
operations were resumed at nearly all
the mines which were tin own Idle as
the result of the strike.
The firemen employed by the Dela
waio, Lackawanna and 'Western and
Delaware and Hudson companies are
having no difficulty I" securing their
old positions again, but at several of
tho mines of tho Hillside Coal and Iron
company, wheie work was resumed
during the strike, the ne'w men then
engaged are still retained.
Chief Clerk Taylor, who Is in charge
during the absence of W. W. "Inglis,
tho superintendent, stated yesterday
that the company proposed to stick by
tho men who stuck by It during the
strike, and that none of these men
would be discharged. The company,
he said, took back only as many of Its
old men as it had places for, and these
went right at work alongside the other
men without complaint.
The general Impression seems to pre
vail In labor circles that tho strike Just
ended means end of the stationary
firemen's organization In this state, as
far as the firemen employed at the
mines Is concerned, The attitude of
tho officers of the mine workers' organ
ization Is taken as being Indicative
of their desire to bring Into the ranks
of the United Mine Workers every
man employed about tho mines, In
cluding both engineers and firemen,
Local officers of the Mlno Workers
do not hesitate to admit that as long
ns the mine firemen insist on main
taining a separate and Individual or
ganization, they can never secure the
support of tho mine workers' organiza
tion, and It Is generally predicted, that
the principal result of tho unsuccessful
strike just ended will be tho bringing
of nearly all the firemen Into the
United Mlno Workers' ranks.

NEW TRUCK HAS ARRIVED
Director of Public Safety Wormser
Refused to Accept It Reason
for His Action.
Tho hook and ladder truck built by
the La France Engine company, of
F.lmlra, N. Y arrived In tho city yes
terday, hut Director ot Public Safety
Wormser i of used to accept It. It will
be remembered that after the contract
for this truck, a tiro engine and some
hose wns awarded It was discovered
that there was some question about
the legnllty of tho contracts.
Measures wore Introduced In councils
directing the recorder to advertise for
new bids for these articles, directing
him not to sign warrants for the pay
ment of them, etc. To save tho city
from all kinds of complications Re
corder Council nntllled the various suc
cessful bidders that their contracts
were Illegal, and that me city wouia
not expect them to live up to them.
In the meantime some of the hose
had arrived and was accepted, and
legislation Is now before councils to
make valid the tiro hose contracts. Sev
eral days ago the La Franco Knglnc
company notified the city officials that
It was about to ship tho truck, and
was told not to do so, as It would lay
here at the company's expense. It was
shipped, however, and when the city
would not accept It yesterday It was
placed In 'the Electric City stables
opposite the Hook and Lidder house.

A battle to compel the city to accept

The main ladder of tho tiuck, when
extended, Is SO feet long, and there
ate seven other smaller ladders, rang
ing from 111 to &0 feet In length. There
ore also clulit hook poles on the ap
paratus. Tho truck Ib twenty-one feet
from axle to axle, and the whole Is
fifteen feet longer than tho truck now
The extension ladder Is run up and
down by a st'eel cable, which works
both ways, Insuring absolute safety.
At the extreme end there Is a pulley
for pulling hose from the ground to the
top of a building.
Tho ladders can bo ralsecT In forty
seconds, and tho working of the lire-

FUNERAL OF THE
LATE DR. BLANCHARD
Services Conducted at the Residence
by Rev. James McLeod,D. D.
His Touching Eulogy.
If sympathy can relieve a breaking
heart, then It would seem that the
young wife and the lelatlves of Dr.
George A. .Blanehard must have felt to
some degree this comfort yesterday In
the all-pervndlng grief for their sorrow,
A throng of friends gathered In the
pretty home, whose happiness had co
soon ended, and many were the teats
shed for tho man gone away In the
morning of life, for the stunned and
desolate bride of a year, and the aged
mother and hi others. Comrades were
there who had seen the young surgeon
on duty during the war, and who loved
and honored him for his gentleness and
his unwearying service. Church asso
ciates weie time who mourned slnceic
ly the nobility of soul nnd purpose and
the great loss to the chuich. Brother
physicians wcro present who thought
with sadness of the brilliant promise so
blighted, and of the pleasant relation
so rudely severed. A sobbing group of
young people In one loom repretented
a Sunday school class, In whose eyes
this teacher, with his lofty aims and
beautiful character, had been nn In
spiration. Others who were not there could have
told a tale of the sick poor tellevcd, of
the time and kindly aid so freely given
by the young doctor, to whom time
meant much at the opening of his
career. Cleigyinen of the city outsldo
his denomination remembered the val
ued assistance so cheerfully rendeied,
and sighed as they realized that the
loss was Irreparable.
The looms' were tilled with flowns,
which hid the casket lying in a shad
owy corner. Uev. Dr. James McLeod
had returned from his summer home at
Kast Hampton to conduct the service,
and speaking to a friend earlier In the
day, be said, sorrowfully, "1 have come
to a sad earth."
He recited fiom the service for the
dead and supplemented this- with a
tribute to the departed. "Ho was a
rare young man," said the speaker
vtlth emotion. "Bare In his Christian
life, and In Ills Ideals. He had wrought
out his own way In the world, and had
he lived, he would have achieved a
great place in his profession. Wc can
sometimes see why It Is that we must
lay away a friend when age and feeble
ness has overtaken him, but why this
one, In the flower of his youth, must
be smitten we cannot see. It is true,
Indeed, that 'line we see through a
glasw darkly.' 1 can see but a little
way today. I feel that my place should
be with the mourners. Our young
friend has left a noble example to his
associates In all walks of life, a beauti
ful heritage to the bereaved ones whom
we can only commend to the Comforter
Chaplain Swift, of the Thirteenth
regiment, who with Captain Arthur
Foote was sent from the encampment
to lepiescnt their organization, of
which Dr. Blanehard was a member,
followed with prayer. The service con
cluded with a solo, "I'm but a Stranger
Here, Heaven Is My Home," sweetly
rendered by John T, Walking Miss
Richmond noting as accompanist.
The pull-bearers were. Captain Her
bert B. Cox and Captain L. T. Mattes,
A. C. Twltchell, Selden II. Kingsbury,

The relatives of tho deceased present
from out of the city were his mother,

In this table is registered from the
central city, while three are from the
towns more or less distant. In Table

appear that several of the winners are
bound to come from suburban towns.
Which town will carry off the honors?
It will take nearly six weeks to decide,
The contest will bo open for entries
until August I,, and there is plenty
of time yet for ambitious young people
to enter. Last year some of the win
ners commenced In the closing month,
and perhaps 1t will be the same this
year. A contestant beginning today,

considered among the safest in
vestments. The one drawback
which they have always had has

the mortgagee desired to sell, he
must wait until the title has been

the purchaser's attorney may dis
cover. The mortgagee's policy of
this company may be assigned with
a bond and mortgage by the simple
endorsement of the mortgagee.
There is no expense; it is as simple
as endorsing a check or note.
