DWYER'S UNKNOWN WAS
THROWN BY M'LEOD
Put His Shoulders Down on the Slat
Three Times Within an Hour at
the Bicycle Club.
Dan S. McLeod, tho Canadian wrest
ler, again proved his superiority last
night by throwing a short, stocky "un
known," backed by Prof. M. J. Dwyer,
three times In an hour, at the Scrnnton
McLeod agreed to throw the unknown
three times In an hour, for a side bet of
$100 und the entire gate receipts. The
unknown nosltlvely refused to reveal
his Identity last night, and Gideon
Perry, McLeod's manager, wns ut a.
loss to tell who he was. He had heard
of him, he said, but did not know his
real name. He is a young man, built
almost tho same as McLeod. and looked
to be in splendlcl trim when he stepped
on the mat. McLeod Is in training for
his big match with Jim Parr, the Eng
lish champion, on April 10, and was In
The unknown Kent on the defensive
from the start and wormed out of some
mighty ticklish holds. Several times ho
was all but gone, and the crowd thought
all was up. The next minute he would
be on his hands and knees, and smiling
over his shoulder at McLeod. The lat
ter, however, didn't do very much ical
hard wrestling until ho laid out Mr.
Unknown nt the end of twentv-seven
minutes and twenty-two seconds.
After an interval of ten minutes, he
went after Dvvyer's man ut a furious
pace. The latter appeared to be pretty
thoroughly tired out, and though he
strove hard he was laid flat at the end
of four minutes and forty-five seconds.
He held out a little better when they
went nt it again and wired himself out
of two neck holds In un exceptionally
clever manner. Ho even tried to nut
McLeod down, but he couldn't do much
with the hitter's Iron neck and bis,
muscular back. Ho realized this and
fell back on-lho defensive, to be nut
down at the end of thirteen minutes
and fifteen seconds, or forty-five min
utes' actual wrestling time, all told.
Hugh Keenan, the referee, announced
between the second and third falls that
McLeod, having heaid that Prof. Dwyer
was not satisfied with the last mntch.
would agree to put up $200 that he
(McLeod) could put the professor down
five times in an hour. Dwyer will be
communicated with immediately.
Thero Is a possibility of a match here
between "Big Tom" Jenkins and Mc
Leod. President Connolly lias received
n letter from Jenkins, In which the lat
ter expresses his willingness to meet
anybody in particular here. McLeod,
who wns thrown some time ago by Jen
kins, two falls out of three, and who
claims that he was "done all kinds ot
dirt" on that occasion, is so anxious to
meet Jenkins that he is willing to
wrestle for nothing nt all, ,.
Jenkins, however, wants n pui-Fe or n
big guarantee, nnd if the match Is
pulled off it would have to be arranged
for the nrmory, where ?l,r;oo or more
could be realized. Mr. Connolly will en
deavor to interest some local men In a
plan to havo McLeod and Jenkins meet
here. Such an event would be one of
the i cully big matches of many years,
and would attract attention all oer the

ANNUAL MESSAGE '
OF THE RECORDER
During the Fiscal
Year Just Closed.
Wisdom of Creating
monstrated by the
'A document of unusual Interest to tho
people of Scrnnton Is the annual mes
sage 6C Recorder W. L. Connell. which
reviews what was done by the city gov
ernment of Scrnnton durlnir the year
following the change from a city of the
third to the second class.
The message shows that tho business
of the various departments ot the city
government hns been reduced to a sys
tematlq working basis and that better
resutts are being obtained than were
possible under the conditions that nre
vailcd when we were a city of the third
class. The message follows:
The annual message of Recorder W.
L. Connell, rend at the Joint session of
councils yesterday, follows:
To the Honorable, tho Select und Common Conn
ells, City of Scranton, l'a.
flcntlrmeii: In pinsuanco of the piolilon of
tho Art of March 7, 1P01, I heron II h present for
the considciatlon cf your honorable bodies my
annual message, settliu; foilh as completely as
possible tho work of the exceutiie departments
of the municipal government during the pa-t
.icar, alomr with recommendations for micIi le-i-datlon
as nppaier.lly urces for the earliest con
sidciation at lour hands.
1 Imc alo submitted the reports of the fev
eial departments, as ltturned to ine by the re
speclho dlrcctois and heads of departments,
which ihow in greater detail than I could present
in tho compass of a brief communication, ihe
actual work which the ellllerent offices oio called
upon to pcrfoini in the course of a jear.
I especially recommend these reports to jour
considciatlon. They arc- cleai, conci-e and Iium
nosnlilio statements, and I beliceo, constitute! the
best espositlon of tha work of such important
branches of the municipal go eminent, as tho
bureaus ot police nnd Iho nnd of cnglnccitiis
and highways and seweis, that lias cer been
made. A perusal of tlicc leports will show- that
the heads of these department hue tho detail
of their woik well in hand.
The groupine; together of those branches of the
city go eminent which were naturally allied, into
one general department under a sinnle dlicelor,
has giently increased tho cll'ciemy of the-e
sceral buicaiia and has tended to male moic
cfiectlio the whole miuucipil oiaulzatiop. It
has permitted the iliuction of tho work of the
kindled buieaus along haimoniou line-, and has
made ponible the piosecutiou of a unifoini pol
icy of iidtninl-itutioii, a condition, which under
the oil pjstcni of dijoimd nnd ihaotic deput
men!.-, was absolutely unobtainable.
That the industrial interests af the city 'iae

has been appaicut to all, and the ic-ultant indus

During the prcgio-s of these troubles the rity
has been remarkably free from M'lioin broaches
of the public peace. There has been a whole

bodies an ordinance providing for the bonding

which this xery important measure was consid

was submitted I addressed a communication to
jour honorable bodies in which I explained in de

ply the proceeds of this is-ue. As I stated at
that tune, tho piinclpal item is $100,001) which
is to be used for the purpose of funding the judg

thereby saving an annual interest charge on this
portion of tho city's debt of .',100. The le

Between Thirty-five and Forty of the
Strikers Will Return to Work for

About 100 ot the street car strikers
made formal application yesterday for
reinstatement under tho terms of the
ngreemont by which' the strike was
brought to an end Sunday night. None
of them, however, were, put nt work.
Superintendent Patterson took their
names and addresses, received the
badges, punches and other company
property some of them had been re
taining, paid off those who had not been
around to draw the wages owing them
at the time the strike xvas declared, and
told them he would send for them as
soon as places were a-allable. About
thirty-five or forty are to be put at
It was left to the decision of the
strikers as to how the men wero to be
reinstated. A committee, consisting ot
executive Committeemen Shea', Kagler
and Mnllnrl. walled on Mr. Sllli
