Hero with His Wife Who Is the Star

A plain ami unpretentiously-dressed'
young- man, with a keen eye ami a face
that denotes shrewdness and durlntf,
watched the production of "Under
Southern Skies" at the Iyeeuin Inst

owner of the show and the husband of
tho beautiful young woman who is the
star of the company. She is known
to the theatrical world as Miss Grace
Immensely proud Is Mr. Brady of his

Is far too busy a man for that, but he

a long distance in the cab of an en

began a journey to join the company

NOW IT'S THE
INSURANCE MEN ARE HUNTING
UP NEW REASONS.
Will Not Say Positively That Small
Wntor Mains Are Responsible for
Increase of Insurance Rates Not
Being Taken Off but Intimate That
tho. Mains and the Street Car
Strike Are Big Factors Superin
tendent Foruor Says Talk About
Small Mains Is Nonsense.
Superintendent 11. F. Forbcr, of the
bureau of lb", In a statement made
last night lo a Tribune man, charac
terized as absurd and unworthy of ser
ious consideration the statements
which uro understood to have tome
from some of tho local fire Insurance
men, to the effect that the water sup
ply of this city Is Inadequate for the
purposes of fighting fire and that the
nmiiH arc of Insufficient size.
A local newspaper published u story
to the effect that tho alleged lnsufll
clont size of the water mains nnd the
alleged lowness of tho water pressure
is what Is really causing the insurance
companies to keep "tho pink slip on all
policies issued. Inquiry revealed the
fact that this story emanated from a
member of the local board of under
writers. A prominent member of the same
board, who refused lo allow his nome
lo be used, when asked yesterday If the
fire underwriters have a real objection
to the size of the water mains and to
the water pressure, said:
"A committee from the middle de
partment board, which adjusts the
intes for this city, has been Investi
gating local conditions during tho past
few' weeks and among other things
looked into was the size of the water
mains and the average water pres
sure." COULD XOT ANSWER.
"Was there any comment on this
matter or did. the committee express
themselves as being dissatisfied with
conditions in this respect?" asked the
"J'm not at liberty to reply to that
question," was the reply, "but you
know yourself that you can't expect
to fight a big lire with several engines
sucking water from a six-inch main,
such as we have on many of our
streets. It don't take much horse,
sense to realize, that. This committee
will report back to the middle depart
ment board and a permanent adjust
ment of fire Insurance rates for Scran
ton will soon bo made. The rate
adopted will be the lowest which will
Insure any profit to the insurance
companies. Whether it will be high or
low cannot now be said.
"The people of this city should un
derstand that the conditions arising
out of the street ear strike which have
prevailed In this city during tho last
few months have given Scranton a
very bad name in the eyes of the fire
insurance men who control local rates.
The impression has gone forth that
Scranton Is a sort of semi-Hades and
that all kinds of revolution and anar
chy lurk In the air. This impression
has had no little effect qn the tire In
surance question, I'll be bound."
The fire insurance man above quoted
desired to have the public understand
and thoroughly that the city has had
dealings only with the middle depart
ment board of underwriters and not
with the local board, and that If there
has been any wrong done, no local in
surance man can bu blamed.
WHAT FERBER SAID.
Superintendent Ferber, when seen
last night, smiled broadly when asked
if it was true that the water mains
are too small and the water pressure
"Why, the idea Is laughable," said
he. "It's positively absurd. There
isn't a city In tho United States that
has a higher water pressure or a
greater supply of water for fighting
fires. I don't make this statement off
hand, but I speak from a knowledge of
"There's no man In Scranton knows
more about the water pressure or the
size of the waler mains than myself,
except the employes of the Scranton
Gas and Water company. The under
writers claim that the central city
mains are of insufficient size. I'll tell
you what I'll do. There's a ten-Inch
main on Lackawanna avenue. I'll at
tach every one of the six steamers In
the department to that main nnd I'll
guarantee to tho board of underwriters
that I'll work them all to their fullest
capacity and throw a stream from each
of sufficient slsw for any fire.
"It's a matter of culculablc fact that
if nil the water In the Lackawanna
avenue main were allowed to flow
r.teadily Into a cistern, nil the steamers
In this city couldn't pump It dry.
There's a twenty-four Inch main on
Washington avenue and I'll agree to
throw two streams from that innln
over the Meat's building. I'll agree to
put as many steamers as they want on
Wyoming or Penn avenues and I'll
guarantee to get nil the waler needed
to fight any fire.
PRESSURE IS HIGH.
"I want to tell you that there are
very few cities In which It Is possible
to fight a tire with hydrant pressure,
as we continually do m this city.
There's only been one fire since I've
been chief at which we've used steamer
pressure nr.d that wnB a breaker flee.
There Isn't a fire In New York city
that's ever fought without steamer
pressure, It couldn't bu done, that's
why, How largo a main do you sup
pose they've got on tho Bowery, In
the heart of a great congested district?
A four-Inch main, What do you think
"People that like to talk and who
think they know it all point to tho big
Lackawanna avenue fire, which hap
pened a year ago today, by tho way,
and 9ny that that proved that the water
supply in the central city Is insuffi
cient. Veoplo who say that don't
know what they're talking about.
They're not In possession of the facts.
"The real reasons for the lack of
water at the Lackawanna avenue lire
are that the steamers were in deplor
able condition, having been allowed
to go to ruin, and that too many lines
were attached to each. The packing
in the Nay Aug steamer was worn
away, so that instead of a pressure
of 300 pounds it was only capable of
working up sixty. There were three
und four lines of hose attached to
some of the steamers and what little
power they had was sub-divided until
there wasn't any 'left, It takes sixty
pounds pressure to send water to tlio
eighth floor of the Connell building.
They had water on that floor during
Hint fire. How could they hnvo had It
If the water pressure vas low?
"The steamers nlo now In splendid
Bhapo, thanks to tho work of D, J,
Slowe, who has devoted a great deal
of his lime nnd attention to their re
pair. They're capable of pumping Just
as many gallons per minute ns they
were guaranteed to pump when pur
chased, nnd there will be no more
churning of the waler In the pumps.
There'll altogether toil much orf-lmnd
talking tibout wnlcr pressure by pci.
sons whose only knowlege Is based on'

A TRIP TO NORWAY.
A Delightful Lecture Delivered at
the High School by F. G.
Partington Last Night.
Usually travel lecturers are prosy,
dull and uninteresting. Not so, how
ever, was tho lecture delivered In the
high school auditorium last night by
F. O. Partington who took -a large
audience on an Imaginary trip through
the fjords of Norway and along 'the
const of that country to the north
cape, the most northerly part of Europe
nnd the point where the sun may be
seen shining In all Its splendor at mid
night. Mr Partington made the trip above
mentioned some yeaVs ago nnd secured
a series of photographs remarkable for
their variety and clearness. These
were thrown on a screen last night
and their showing was accompanied
with a delightful running lecture which
revealed Mr. Partington as a most ob
servant traveller with an eye for the
The views showed scenes taken from
a steamer which sails through the
fjords and revealed the wonderful
beauties of these waterways which run
from the ocean between towering walls
of rock into the very heart of the coun
try. Mr. Partington told of the Nor
way glaciers compared to which the
Swiss glaciers are as snowballs, to use
his words, and referred to tho homely
virtues of tho country people who re
tain tho customs, and in many In
stances, tfie dress of ages now long
His description of the way In which
they hoard each blade of grass that
nppears and of their climbs up moun
tain fastnesses to secure scant supplys
of grass for fodder was very pathetic.
"The Norwegian peasant," said he,
"has implicit trust in human nature.
If you accept the hospitality of his bed
and board ho lets you name your own
price and prefers to let you leave the
mouey on the table for him instead of
giving it to him personally."
In referring to the trip to tlio north
cape, he qnid that all other trips arc as
nothing compared to it and that It
hath not entered into the mind of the
man who has not been there to con
ceive of the glorious majesty of the
scenery and of the solemn mystery Hint
surrounds the journey through desolate
solitudes of rocky peaks to the rocky
promontory which throws Its rugged
front far out Into the artlc ocean.
During the larger part of tho jour
ney, he said, there Is perpetual day and
the light Is almost ns strong at mid
night as at noon. The steamer threads
is .way through channels nnd fjords and
the sea until at last tho cape Is
reached and the glories of nn artlc
sun nt midnight are revealed. Tho
view taken shortly before midnight
showing tho sun shining through a rift
in the clouds and all around nu ntmos
pheer of Indellnlble gloom, was won
"To one who has travelled In Nor
way," said Mr. Partington, "It Is no
wonder that those majestic rocks and
vast solitudes hnvo evolved tho most
terrible and powerful of all mytholo
gies." Big Bargains

TALK GN CHINA
SHE WAS ONE OF THE MISSION
ARIES IN PEKIN.
Told of Some of tho Horrors of the
Siege Paid a Tilbute to the Chi
nese Christian and Heathen for
Many Acta of Klndneaa nnd Brav
ory That They Performed for the
Missionaries During tho Horror3 of
That Terrible Period Thoy Are
Not All Bad.
Mrs. C. S. Weston afforded unbound
ed plcnsui'o yesterday afternoon, when
Him entertained a largo number of
ladles nt her home to hear Miss New
ton, who has recently returned from
China. Miss Newton spoke In the In
terests of tho Foreign Missionary soci
ety of tho First Presbyterian church,
and the tale sho totd of what she hnd
known during that awful period of
peril In Pekln was something which
brought close to her hearers the llrst
realistic view they had of tho siege.
Miss Newton snld It should not bo
understood that the Uoxers represented
China. There uro good heathen, who
stood aghast at the atrocities perpe
trated by tho Boxers. The mission
aries were repeatedly preserved by
heathen neighbors, nt great risk to
The young wife of one of tho mis
sionaries wnlked with her baby through
the streets of tho city during that first
dreadful night. She mot" a crowd of
rufllans, who were about to seize her
when a strange man came out from the
mob and said: "Let my neighbor go.
You do not want to take away my face
by ill-treating one of my neighbors."
He took hor to his own house, where
his wife arranged her dress nnd kept
her for days. Ho was not a Christian,
neither was his wife, but he protected
the Christian from death.
HER HUSBAND KILLED.
"A young woman, one of my pupils,"
said Miss Newton, "was married on the
night of that' 13th of June, because it
was thought she ought to have a pro
tector. As the young woman, with her
husband and sister-in-law, started out
to find a place of safely, they met the
swarms of men hurrying to the city,
nnd looking with lanterns in every
place of concealment for tho Christians
or their friends. They seized the groom,
and at daybreak dragged him to a high
wall, from which they hurled him sixty
feet to his death.
"Tho poor women, heart-broken, sat
down by the roadside to weep, but an
old woman, a heathen, muttered to
them: 'Pretend you don't care, or
they'll kill you, too.' The Boxers caught
them later, however, and making the
sister-in-law kneel down, cut off her
head and flung it aside. The poor little
bride expected the same death, when a
young man rushed from the crowd and
cried: 'Let this girl alone. I know
about the doctrine they tench. It does
no harm,' and he persuaded them to
give her up. He took her to tho house
of a policeman, a heathen, and he and
his wife took her in nnd cared for her.
Finally they sent for her mother.
WENT TO TSIN TSIN.
"The day after the massacre Dr. An
nent saw a little boy who said lie
wanted to go with him lo the Methodist
mission where they were all imprison
ed. He was a heathen child, but said
he wanted to stay with the Christians.
Afterward when they wanted volun
teers to carry a letter to the consul in
Tsin Tsln the boy volunteered to make
tho journey. They tried to persuade
lilin not to try it ns It meant certain
death, but disguised as a beggar, ho
walked eighty miles through the Box
ers' lines and suffering Incredible hard
ships. Tho letter that he gave the con
sul was tho llrst news they had re
ceived from the besieged city. The one
he brought back was the llrst hope that
relief would come. Surely such fidel
ity should make us respect the Chinese.
"But if the heathen Chinese are a
source of encouragement what shall we
say of the Christian Chinese?" Not
one of our Christian servants left us
until they had done the last thing they
could do Some of them went with
us to the Methodist mission. A wom
an who had served me faithfully for
years, sobbed as she left me to go to
hor country home as there was nothing
more she could do for me. I begged
her to go with me but she wished to
help some of her people to escape. Tho
Boxers caught her and her child and
murdered them so cruelly that none of
our friends would tell me the details.
WOULD NOT BETRAY THEM.
"Why am I standing hero today? Be
cause of the fidelity of tho Chinese
Christians. Why did they not sell In
formation or betray us to the Boxers?
It would not have been Immaterial If
some of them had thought they might
as well savo themselves but not one was
faithless. What shall I say or a mero
school boy who ran ahead of the mob
to warn our elders of tho coming at
tacks. The boy was not willing to
stay with us because ho wanted to
savo bis family In Its country home.
FRANK L. PHILLIPS,

The Boxers caught him and hnd he
kept still he might have escaped, but
he preached irt them about Christianity
Until they cut hint lit pieces.

"Tlio cooks in ono of the missionary
families Was caught and told that If
ho would recuu t he might escape, but
he made them put yn his bent clothes
Unit he might die ns befitted his lofty
calling as u devout follower of Jesus.
No wonder they dug out his heart to
find the secret therein." -
WAS NO LOOTING.
In speaking of the alleged looting by
missionaries, Miss Newton told nu In
cident of tho way In which a native
came to u missionary and besought hlni
to keep two costly vases until the
siege was over, as they might there
be safe. A New York reporter who wnw
taken Into the missionary's home mm
as a deed of charity because he could
not be conifoi'tnblo elsewhere saw the
vases In the room he occupied and
straightway sent off a startling story
about the cupidity of missionaries.
With regard to the political aspects
of uffalrs Miss Newton said that not
much can bo hoped for from tho Dow
ager Empress, but It Is more than prob
able Unit the emperor Is a Christian.
A nephew of the Dowager Empress
with his wife Is hoping for roynl con
sult to be baptized and unite with the
church. Tho royal edict has gone forth
to establish .schools and colleges in
ull provinces wherein western educa
tion Is to be taught. Surely here Is en
