BURGLAR BADLY HURT
BY HOTELMAN EVANS
He Was a Member o a Gang That
Tried to Break Into Evans'
Place at Duryea.
Burglars attempted to enter the hotel
of Isaac Kvuns, at Duryea, early yes
terday morning. Ho shot at them and
ono of the gang was struck and now
lies In the Plttston hospital In a very
Uvnns' saloon is located on the back
road at Duryea, near Kdsall & Clausen's
store, and It was at an early hour yes
terday morning Mr. Evans was aroused
by sonio one endeavoring to raise a
window of ii rear portion of the house
on the first lloor. Mr. Evans and fumily
occupy rooms above the saloon, and ut
first hearing tho operations of tho
burglars, Mr. Evans arose and, seizing
his revolver, lulsed the bedroom win
dow just In time to see the forms of
two men dodging around the corner ot
the house, they having been alarmed at
tho noise when Evans raised the win
dow. Evans fired two shots, and a
piercing yell followed, and one of the
men throw up his arms and fell to the
Evans then grabbed his repeating
rille and hurried out the front, door,
thinking ho might be able to drop an
other of the gang, but they disappeared
too quickly. The Injured man lay on
tho ground, calling for assistance, and
Evans carried him into the hotel. It
was qvldent the man was badly wound
ed, as be was entirely helpless. Dr.
Baker was hastily summoned, and
made an examination of the wound. It
was found that Evans' aim bad been a
very true one, the bullet, which was of
38-callbrc, striking the man Just off the
right shoulder blade and taking a
course to the spine, which was affected,
paralyzing the entire body from the
The Injured man was taken to the
Plttston hospital, where it is stated his
condition is considered quite serious.
The man told several stories ns to bis
Identity, but it Is generally believed
his name is Michael Melvln, and his
home Newark,-N. X At the latter place,
Melvln says, be has a sister living, and
he has made that nlacc bis headquar
ters. Although badly Injured, the man
took the affair very coolly and joked
nnd chatted merrily on his way to the
hospital. At first he said bo was a
pack peddler, but later said he had been
in the burglary business a long time,
and this was the worst scrape he ever
it is thought there were four men In
the party, but Melvln refused to divulge
the identity of his pals. It is thought,
however, they are members of a gang
of crooks who visit this locality an
nually, making their headquarters at
Duryea, Evans has not yet given him
self up to the police, but expresses a
willingness to do whatever the author
IS A REPUBLICAN
Certificate of Nomination as Demo

The nomination of B, T. Jnyne as the
Democratic candidate for school con
troller from the Thirteenth Is contested
on tho ground, among others, that Mr.
Jayno Is a Republican.
The contest was instituted yesterday
before Judge John P. Kelly, by Attor
neys Frank T. Okell and I. H. Burns,
representing James Pace and J. J. Mc
Tngue, president and secretary, re
spectively, of the caucus which nomi

January 10, a caucus of the Demo
crats was called ut. the hull of the
Young Men's Institute. Some wanted
to endorse Mr. Jayne's candidacy and
others were for nutting up a Demo
cratic candidate. A split was tho re
sult. The Jayno men, who were vastly In
the majority, withdrew to one side of
tho hall and nominated Mr. Jayno for
controller: Martin Lniigan, for con
stable, nnd T. J, Early, for assessor.
Tho faction headed by Chairman
Pace and Secretary McTaguo ptoeeedetl
with the caucus Mr, Paco had con

MAGNITUDE OP THIS GREAT
There Will Do More Than Three
Hundred and Fifty 3?orformors
Gorgeously Costumed One of the
Features o the Kit-mess Will Be
the Real Game of Whist Thirteen
Different Dances Will Be Given
by tho Young People of the City
at the Lyceum,
Tho event tit Importance next week
will, be tho klrmess for the Teacbets"
Mutual Benefit association. It Is prob
able that our people do not reul
Ize what a really wonderful affair It
Is to be. Tho fuel Is that in tho his
tory of klnncsses and wo have had a
few In our time, no such an entertain
ment as this has over been projected.
In tho first place, more than 050 per
sons will participate. This In itself
gives Homo Idea ot the magnitude of
the plans. Tho costumes, instead ot
being merely showy and cheap, nre
more elaborate than anything ever
staged In this city. Homo idea ot the
truth of this statement may be gained
when It Is understood that most of tho
costumes are made of satin, are fresh
and new und that rose leaves to tho
value, of $30 will be used In one
dunce alone. There will be twenty
dances and this number Is far larger
than Miss Stewart has ever before
conducted in ono klrmess. The "Splol
kartenfesl" will probably be the
unique attraction of the entertainment
and a brief description at this point
will be of Interest.
A real game of whist Is played- each
night with different players. Among
these will be the most' prominent and
expert whist players In the city. Tho
list will bo chosen from the following:
Messis. C. It. Fuller, Eugene Henley,
II. C. Wallace. J. F. Broadbent, T. H.
Dale, J. H. Torrey, II. A. Knapp.
Everett Warren. A. II. Christy, W. D.
Boyer, C. B. Penman, F. P. Price,
Grant Pelton, II. R. Van Deusen, F.
Smith, Scott, Tunstull and others.
THE WHIST GAME.
The fifty-two cards are represented
bs- fifty-two persons, each of whom
wears tho badge of tho name on cape
or apron. They are all richly dressed.
Each one also carries the card corre
sponding with his name, in his hand.
Tho four gentlemen who play the
game nre stationed at the corners of
the stage. The Joker, who by the way
is Mr. Milton O'Connell, shuffles the
pack nnd deals the living cards. The
pages then gather tho duplicate cards
from the fifty-two and present them
to the players In whose "hands" they
belong. The players give orders to the
pages, who select the curds according
to these directions. As fast as "tricks"
are taken they are ranged aside in
groups of fours Just as "books" aie
made up. At the conclusion of each
hand the result Is placed on a large
blackboard so that there can bo no
mistaking the progress of the game. It
consumes twenty minutes and Is per
fectly fascinating to an audience.
There is .it beautiful dnncc of the
pages at the close of the game.
The matinee performance will be the
most attractive affair ever presented
by children on a Scranton stage. Tho
entrancing story of Cinderella is given
in a little play entirely by tho small
people. The scene opens at the hearth
side where poor Cinderella sits alone,
and upon whom later descend her cruel
step-sisters to taunt her. Then enters
the fairy god-mother, and Cinderella
vanishes In a golden chariot drawn by
Katherlne Coursen Is Cinderella,
Emma Taylor and Elizabeth Storrs
are tho proud step-sisters. Theodore
Vundllng Is the step-futher and
Romayne Spencer Is the fairy god
mother. Following Is a list of the chap

PERSONS QUARANTINED ARE
WELL CARED IFOR.
Dr. Allen Says the Pooplo In the
Brace House Have Deou Piomptly
Supplied with Everythhig Thoy
Have Made Requisition for Mr.
Brace Says Ho Han No Complaint
to Make About the Manner In
Which Ho Has Been Cared for by
the Health Authorities.
Dr. V. E. Allen, superintendent of
tho bureau of health, was seen yester
day by a Tribune man with reference
to thu charges made In common coun
cil Thursday night to the effect that
people quarantined In the Bruce house
on North Bromley avenue bad not
been properly cared for, that the beds
had been removed from the bouse and
thnt they were compelled to sleep on
tho baro floor.
"There is nothing whatever In tho
statements made by Councllmcn L,ew
ls and Evans," replied tho doctor.
"The people In the Britee house have
baen promptly supplied with every
thing they have made a request for.
Patrolman James Hart was specially
detailed by the police department to
ascertain the wants of the people
quarantined In tho Draco house and .the
Mpars' hall building and supply them
at once. I know bo has done his duty.
"Jrr. Brace asked for n couch and
It was sent to him. Later ho asked for
a bed and that, too, was furnished.
Obe morning about !U0 he expressed a
desire for more bed clothing and be
had them at noon. It has been our
constant effort to do everything we
could for the comfort of the unfortun
ate people we are compelled to quar
antine for the safety of the commun
ity and wo have had no complaints
from them nbout lack of consideration
"In onlv one Instance have we re
fused to comply with a request of Mr.
Brnce's. lie wanted tho house fumi
gated with formaldehyde gits, but wo
could not do that without either driv
ing them out of tho house or allow
them to remain and kill them by the
fumigation process. Naturally wo
could not do either. We did, however,
send Officer Lewis to the house with
sulphur candles and had the house
fumigated In that manner."
Dr. V. A. Paine, who is In charge of
the people In the Brace and Mears'
hall buildings, said last night that he
visited Mr. Brace yesterday morning
and asked him If ho had any com
plaints to make about his treatment
nnd h" said ho hud not, that he has
been well cared for In every way and
that the only criticism he has to offer
Is that the health authorities refuse to
fumigate the house.

Chopped Off S7,245 More Than
Was Necessary Yesterday.
The sub-committee appointed by the
estimates committee to pare down the
estimates of the several heads of de
partments finished up its work yester
day afternoon and not onlj- knocked
off all that was necessary but some
$7,243 more. n-
The item of $8,000 asked by Controller
Howell for "sundry Incidental bills
and claims for 1002 not otherwise pro
vided for," was eliminated. The mem
bers of tho committee decided that as
these claims have not yet been pre
sented there Is no good reason why any
money should be uppioprlnted to pay
The item of $12,000 for the payment
of deficiency bills on file in tho city
controller's office and other estimated
demands payable for, 1901, was cut
down to $S,300, that being the total
amount of tho bills sent to tho com
mittee by tho controller.
It Is understood that the additional
$7,243 which was cut out will be ap
plied to the electric light appropria
tion at tho meeting of tho full com
mittee which Is to be held on next
Tuesday night. Director of Public
Works Roche bus filed with tho sub
committee a list of ninety lights, tho
ordinances for which have either been
passed or are now pending.
Tho number ot lights provided for
In his 'estimate is CO.", which number
Is the same ns that provided for dur
ing tho present fiscal year. The appro
priation asked for this number of
lights at $73 each Is $1S,C13. Ninety
new lights at $73 each would amount
In discussing the Item of $3,000 asked
for a general city printing and sta
tionary account, which Is $2,500 more
than tho appropriation for tho present
fiscal year It was brought out that
only a very few of tho ordinances
passed this your have been printed In
the newspapers despite the fact that
the Upper bill makes such printing
mandatory. It Is not known whether
the legality of tho ordinances Is affect
ed by this fact.
