Mr. and Mrs. "William II. Taylor en
tertulned a large company of guests at
"Hill Top" last night. Jliss Electa
Ulft'ord, soprano, and Arthur Hoch
innii, pianist, were the artists.
The magnificent new home has not
before been thrown open to as large
nn assemblage and its magnificence
and wonderful adaptability to such en
tertainments was the subject of con
tinual lemarks during the evening. The
rooms are all of noble proportion and
most remarkably handsome, furnished
as they are In the rarest of woods und
the perfection of coloring. Within
them have been gathered treasures of
art from many lands. The great hall,
sixty-live feet In depth, Is richly panel
led lu old oak nnd from It rise two
staircases from u raised landing and
meeting midway ubove, giving an
Indescribably stately effect. The balus
trades are enriched with rare carvings,
In which acanthus designs are the mo
tif. Velvet carpet, In a glowing red
hue made this room with Its assemb
lage of beautifully gowned women a
scene of striking loveliness.
The Inglenook surrounding1 the great
(Ire-pluctJ made a picturesque plat
form for the piano and u. cluster of
brilliant led roses guvo the keynote of
color to the general effect. The hall Is
set with many curved pieces of furni
ture, chief umoug which Is a wonder
ful clock, a genuine antique, dating
back to 10.10, and taken from a famous
English castle. It weighs tons and Is
valued at many thousand dollars. It
it -could tell Its own history the tnlo
would bo u romance Indeed,
The entertulnment which air. and
Mrs. Taylor u (forded their guests was
one of such rare enjoyment as comes
but seldom. The celebrated soprano,
Miss Electa Gilford, and Arthur Iloch
man, the great pianist, gave a pto
gramme of such a high order that It is
unique In tho history of musical af
fairs In this city. An addltlonul pleas
ure was tho sympathetic and artistic
accompaniment given by Charles Doer
sam, formerly of Scranton.
Mr, Uochmau has certainly a mar
vellous future before Him. Ills
technlquo Is superb and such execution!
It Is said that none can play that
Chopin Polonaise with such power and
such Inspiration, save one, and that Is
liosenthal. His octave work In that
number last night was truly phenom
enal. The plaintive Impromptu of Schu
bert's was most adequately given and
again a glimpse of tho true poetry of
his soul was given In the little Ber
ceuse which he played lit the Paur
concert. His refined discrimination
was evident In the progrunune. His
encores were characteristic, the con
eluding wedding music leaving a Hup
py spirit In the air.

Miss ailTord with her youth, hor
spirited beauty might have stepped out
of u Wnttenu picture Inst nlg-lit. Bho
sang exquisitely, purely! nnd to say
that nho captivated every listener Is to
Express but mildly tho general senti
ment. She Is un Htunilnnted edition
do luxe of Mlllan Blituvolt nnd the
Scranton people would like to have her
for their own. Prom the brilliant waltz
song from "Komeo nnd Julletto" to the
sweet old English song which she gave
an nn encore, she wn a delight to

Considerable Discussion About Small
PoxDirectors Want No. 18 Bo
opened and Pupils Allowed to Re
turn to No. 14 Matter Referred to
Superintendent', Health Officer and
Special Committee Miss Margaret
Thropp Appointed tovFill tho Va
cancy at No. 10.
There was a short and buslness-lllto
meeting of tho board of control last
night, at which a good deal of routine
business was transacted. It waB the
first meeting slnco tho rooms were re
decorated, and the members were loud
In their expressions of admiration.
Controller A. B. Eynon called the at
tention of the board to tho fact that
nearly forty pupils of No. 14 school, who
live above Price street, -are prevented
from going to No. 14 Bchool, on account
of the smallpox. Tho parents of tho
children believe It Is unnecessary and
therefore a hardship, as manV of them
will be prevented from making tho
High school next year, If they arc long
kept out of school.
This brought on a general discussion
of the smallpox question, and It was
moved that No. IS be reopened. Finally
the whole matter was referred to the
superintendent In conjunction with the
health ofllcer and tho special smallpox
committee of the board.
The report of Attendance Olllcor
Joyce showed that ho made 91 visits to
schools during January, 47 to homes,
and looked after 02 pupils.
At the suggestion of the High and
Training school committee the board
decided to admit pupils to the High
school on the certificate of the board
of regents of the state of Now York.
With reference to books kept by pupils
who loft tho High school, the commit
tee reported that the secretary notified
these ,puplls to return the books and
If they do not do so, suit will bo brought
against them. With reference to pupils
from outside the district who are at
tending the High school, the commit
tee was not ready to present Its report.
They found that there are thirty-two
pupils, three or four of whom are chil
dren of soldiers. The law grants them
special privileges, and the committee
has asked Solicitor Iteedy for an opin
ion before passing upon them formally.
Miss Margaret Tropp was appointed
a teacher at No. 1G, to succeed Miss
Smith, resigned. Miss Teresa M. Blewltt
was transferred from No. 25 to 9, and
Miss Gertrude MeGee from No. 9 to
No. 23.
A motion was passed instructing the
superintendent to attend the conven
tion of the national city superintend
ents In Chicago on February 28, and
$100 was appropriated to pay his ex
penses. He was instructed to endeavor
to get the convention to hold its next
meeting in this city. Chairman Gibbons
was Instructed to appoint a committee
to attend tho convention of county
school directors at Hnrrisburg on Wed
nesday and Thursday, If he believes it
Is advisable to do so.
Controller Evans called the attention
of the board to the fact that the mat
ter of pupils of Lackawanna township
attending Nos. 13 and 32 was still un
adjusted. Secietury Fellows explained
that ho sent a bill for $4Sg to the Lacka
wanna township school board, but has
not yet been advised as to what action
was taken with reference to it.
Five thousand dollars of Insurance on
school building No. 10 Having expired,
Peter Bobllng, jr., was told to renew it,
and the premium of $131.23 was ordered
On motion of Controller Langan, the
next meeting will be on Wednesday,
February :o.

Water Company,
The auditing commltteo of councils
met lam night nnd held up bills of the
Scranton Gas and Water company ng
gtegatlng over $2,900. Tho bill that
raised tho greatest howl was for $l,r90
for setting twclvo lire hydrants. In
the past the cost of sotting them has
averaged something like $40. Another
bllt for $1,000 for furnishing water to
Ihe city for the month of Junuary wntv
hold up for the reuson that the com
pany Is not furnishing water to the
entire city, Its mains not reaching cer
tain parts of the Twentieth ward.
A third bill was for $335 for changing
a gas main so iib not to Interfere with
a sewer at Cedar avenue and Chorry
street. It was decided that a sewer
must bo built nt n. certain grade and,
that grade Is not so essential with gas
mains an the pressure overcomes
grades. The grade being necessary and
the sewer being a public Improvement
It was decided that It Haa tho right of
vtny and that the city owes no com
pensation to tho gas and water com
pany. There was a. discussion over bills for
newspaper advertising, It being alleged
that lu some Instances bills aro ren
dered for advertisements set In typo
larger than agate which tho law speci
fies, without reducing tho typo to an
agnte basis.
Plans for New Play,Houso Submitted
to Building Inspector Will Have
Seating Capacity of 1,000.
The plans for the re-modelling of the
old Thirteenth regiment armory Into a
vaudeville theatre were yesterday pre
sented to Building Inspector Brown for
approval by Contractor Conrad Schroe
der, who will make the alterations.
Tho plans were prepared by Architect
L. C. Holdon and provide for a theatre
of comfortable size, equipped with all
modern Improvements. The most Im
portant change that will bo made In
tho present building will be the raising
of the roof eighteen feet. Tho present
lobby Inside the main entrance will be
left as It Is and the company rooms
on each side will be fitted up on the
one side as a ladles' retiring room and
children's room and on tho other as a
gentlemen's smoking apartment and
general business oillce.
The main audltorum will be about
sixty-five feet wide and seventy feet
deep with a lloor five feet higher In the
rear than at the stage. The prosecnlum
arch will be thirty feet wide and
twenty-five feet high. The stage itself
will have a total width of about fifty
feet including the space inside the
wings and the portions set apart for
dressing rooms. The fly loft will be
sufficiently high to permit the hoisting
of the scenery.
There will be twelve boxes, six on
each side of the proscenium arch, thtee
on the main lloor nnd three on the bal
cony lloor. The balcony will run way
around the auditorium from the boxes
on one side to the boxes on the other.
There will be four rows of seats In the
balcony proper nnd behind these and
raised still higher up on a separate
floor will be the gallery. The balcony
will bo approached by wide stairways
running in the rear of the main audi
torium. There will be four exits from
the main floor, two on each side and as
many from the balcony lloor, tho latter
leading on to commodious fire escapes
running down on the outside of the
Tho walls and celling of the theatre
will be finished with ornamental plaster
work on iron lathes while the pios
cenium arch and the front of the bal
cony will be finished In paper mnche.
The contract for decorating will bo
awarded later and the color scheme
has not yet been decided upon.
Tho stage will be equipped with all
modern Improvements and an entirely
new set of scenery will be painted for
tho house. An asbestos curtain will al
so be painted. The theatre will have a
seating capacity of about 1,000 and the
main floor and tho balcony will be pro
vided with upholstered' chalts. The
gallery will be provided with hard wood
Work on the theatre will be begun as
soon as the building Inspector approves
tho plans. The Dixie Is named after
Henry Dixie, who will manage It In the
Interests of the local gentlemen who
have become Interested In the plan.
Another Lot of Complications Dis
closed in Divorce Court.
That "married life is full of strife" Is
being exemplified in the now celebrated
and much complicated Compton-Hege-Hn
Frank A. Compton and Carrie Hege
lln, a boy und girl, of Petersburg,
thought to get married. In addition to
being very young they were exceeding
ly green.
It was their Intention to run away
to Blnglmmton. Just what all lead up
to it Is too complicated to detail, but
at all events, Compton and a middle
aged man named Mechler, of Nay Aug,
convinced the girl that tho trip to Blng
lmmton was nn unnecessary expense
and that the filling out of a marriage
certificate would do the deed quite
thoroughly and well as If they went be
foie a squire.
A fancy embofcsed manluge certifi
cate was purchased nt it stationery
store, Mechler and Compton filled It out
In tho lobby of tho postolllce, and
Compton and the gill proceeded to live
together as man and wife at the Mech
ler home.
Tho girl's parents, a month Hitw had
Compton und Mechler urrested for
forging the certificate. Mechler Is serv
ing nine months In tho county jail.
Compton was committed but an appeal
was taken nnd tho case Is now In the
superior court.
Tho Hegellu girl married ou Paul
Black on December 23 last, recking not
of the fact that there was a common
law mnrrlage between herself und
A desire has also come to Compton
to marry, but fearing a charge of big
amy he decided to secure a legal un
tying of tho martial bond which Ho felt
bound Htm to the llegelln girl, now
Mrs, Slack, and Instituted proceedings
In divorce,
Mis. Slack was not concerned about
the divorce proceedings until she read
In the papers that the churge on which
the divorce application was based re
flected on her character, She would
not, of course, deny the act alleged, as
she acknowledges Mr. Slafck to bo her
husband, but she was averse to hav
ing It designated as it was In the di
vorce petition. Consequently she ap
pears In opposition to the divorce.
Testimony was taken yesterday by
Stenographer WHUs D. Coston, acting
as commisbloner. A, A. Chase repre
sented Compton, and W. Guylord
Thomas appears for the Hegellns.
