DEFIED THE SUNDAY LAW
Proprietors of New York Candy
Store Refuse to Close on Sunday.
Before an Alderman Last Night.
Blettts Brother!), the proprietors of
the New York randy store, on South
Main street did not obey the mandate
of the chief of police In regard to keep
' lug closed on Sunday, and they were
brought before Alderman Atkinson, of
the Fourth ward, last evening.
A warrant had been sworn out by
Chief of Police McAndrew against the
two, on charge of violating the Sun
day laws by selling candy and cigars
on the 12th of the month. One of the
brothers was In New York at the time
and the' case was postponed, pending
his arrival. The warrant was sworn
out with the warrants issued against
Alphonso Slrrlanl and Mike Bonnelh.
These wore lined $3 each and costs,
which they paid. Last Sunday, Bhte
tus Brothers were opened and a local
clergyman who happened in the store
asked the proprietor If he was sell
ing goods. The nnsw.er was "Yes,"
and that he would continue to do so
on every Sunday. lie Informed the
clergyman that he defied the authori
ties and accordingly a second warrant
was served on him for desecrating the
Sabbath on the 19th of the mouth.
Before the alderman, he pleaded
guilty and was fined $ and costs and
he was given until 10 o'clock this
morning to pay the fine.
AT THE FAIR.
Large Crowd of Columbia Boys En
tertained Last Night Will Close
The Columbia boys entertained a
large crowd at their fair last night. The
hall was comfortable filled. The hour
of round dancing, instead of the hnlf
hour heretofore, proved a great attrac
tion. This additional half-hour caused
the doing away with the usual pro
gramme. The Crystal Fire company, of Jer
royn, In their neat uniforms, were the
guests last night and gained many ad
mirers by their splendid appearance.
Tonight will be the last night of the
fair and the hall will, no doubt, bo
crowded. The door prize for the last
two evenings and tonight Is a hand
some diamond ring. The holder of the
winning ticket must be in the hall when
the drawing takes place. If the holder
falls to bo present, numbers will be
drawn from the box until the holder of
n. ticket is found.
The fair has been a great success In
a financial and social way and a ban
ner night or the fair Is looked for to
night, when the Columbia boys will old
farewell to their patrons. The ten dol
lars' worth of laundry and the twenty
live dollars in gold will bo awarded to
night. The diamond ring, offered to
the lady selling the most chances on
the twenty-live dollars In gold, will also
be awarded this evening. There has
been a spirited rivalry between the fair
canvassers and the result will be nwalt
ed with considerable interest. Tonight
there will also be an hour of round
dancing and no programme.

DAY'S SPLENDID, WORK.
A Hnre Evening of Humorous Story
Telling and Quaint Characteriza
tions. The keen appreciation of wit and
i Humor by the American people and
their fondness for1 u capital story-teller
wasr Illustrated anew last night when
a splendid .uudlencit. made merry over
the stories capitally told by Ellas Day,
the characterlst; when they smiled and
felt pleased with his humor and when
they admired and applauded his de
lineations, mostly humorous, which
give n living reality and force to the
characters he reproduced.
It was ii rare evening of enjoyment
nnd there was not a person who left
the Grand last night that was not of the
opinion that 3Ir. Day was not only a
clever young man, but by far the clev
erest In his lino that has ever visited
this place. lie was preceded with gen
erous praise from those who had wit
nessed his work In othere eplaces, but.
he was not over-rated. 'Whatever ex
pectations were rulsed weere fully real
ized, and If Sir. Day over cares to re
turn to Carbondnle he can come with
the assurance of a reception ' of even
greater warmth than greeted him last
The most conspicuous feature of Mr.
Day's work is the lldelity and natural
ness with which he portrays the chur
.acters of every-day life. Ills charac
ters are not fictitious or Impossible.
They are within the acquaintance of
everybody; they arc persons who are
seen in every community, who are fa
miliar to everybody and whose charac
teristics are well known, So last night
It was like greeting old netniainlnnces
as Jlr. Day Introduced his characters
and presented them with such rare
fidelity. The cross-roads grocery store
story-teller,' the Hebrew, the' Southern
colonel, the professor of classical
music and the Irishman were among
the characters he presented. President
Roosevelt was also strikingly por
trayed. It was not all humor that Mr.
Day provides, there was just enough
pathos In his descriptions and charac
terizations to indicate that he is not
one-sided by any means and that in
his make-up there is real ability.
This number was perhaps the most
satisfactory in the Smith-Singer
Brooklyn Street Residents Convert
ed by the Vast Amount of Water
They Receive Gratis Another
Residents of Brooklyn street in the
vicinity of Brooklyn bridge have nil
been converted into strong municipal
water men. Their conversion comes
through force of circumstances. "They
believe that the residents of this city
should not pay exorbitant rates to the
Consolidated Water company when
enough water can be procured In their
cellars and on the streets in their sec
tion after a heavy rain fall ami ice
blockade to supply all Carbondale with
water for at least six months. The cel
lars of T. Gilhool, Medians, Toolans,
McDonoughs and several others are
filled to a depth of over five feet as the
result of the heavy downpour of rain
Tuesday night. Yesterday morning
the water was running over the bridge
on the streets and through yards to
the cellars. The Ice was blocked for
a considerable distance along the
bridge and for a time It was feared
that the bridge would be carried away
and much more damage caused. The
street leading to the bridge has been
covered by a stream of water several
Inches In depth and the yards below
the bridge are filled with water. The
small stream In the river usually seen
Is now a veritable roaring torrent. Oc
casionally a quantity of Ice floats
down nnd with a resounding crash
weakens to no little extent the sup
porting beams of the frame bridge.
The large cakes of Ice thus carried
down are swept over on the road and
in the nearby yards. Commissioner
Klllen worked all day with several
men to disrupt the blockade and partly
succeeded. At 3 o'clock a. large block
ade of Ice was noticed nt the side of
the Gilhool store nnd Klllen used a
stick of giant powder to remove It,
When the Ignited fuse reached the
powder an explosion occurred which
was plainly heard at a distance. The
Ice was broken In pieces from the top
sections and the particles of Ice rained
down on the persons In the vicinity
and on the houses. The powder was
not strong enough to accomplish all
that was expected of It. It completely
overturned the vast Ice How but It
again took up n position n few feet
further down the stream. This Is the
third time this season that consider
able dnniago has been reused by nn
ovorllow and the sufferers are justly
Indignant and threaten to make
things warm for the city or the D, &
II. company. Each claims that the
other is responslbe for the condition
of things, Court may have to ileoldo
the matter as damage suits will bo
brought by the victims. Crowds view

Francis McP.irly, son of Lyman Mc

ed yesterday nt the Instance ot the
directors of the Cemetery association
for cutting down and stealing u cedar
shrub a day or two before Christmas
day. The stealing of flowers and
shrubs from the cemetery has been a
source of annoyance for several years
past and It has become necessary for
the association to make an example of
the offenders. The present suit was
brought on the sworn evidence of a
young lad named Gavin who swore
that McCurty, accompanied by his two
brothers, cut down tho tree and af
terwards sold It to him. He, however,
was unaware at the time ho bought
It that the tree had been tuken from
the cemetery, At the hearing lust
night the Mefarty boy and his two
brothers not only contradicted the
Gavin boy's statement but swore that
he wus the one that committed the of.
