RAILROAD OFFICE CORPS
ARE SUSP ENDED
Ontario rind Western Company Sends
Homo Its Clerks at Mayfleld Yard j
Until Farther Notice Tho D. & H.
to Do Likewise Merchants Will
Not Ecfuse Credit During tho
The numerous offices of the Ontario
nnd Western company at Maylleld yard
arc all but deserted. Of all the force
there, none is at work but the heads of
departments, perhaps a half-dozen.
Tho enforced vacation took place yes
terday, when the clerks were notillod
that there would be no work for them
until further notice. While the notice
was depressing, it was not a surprise.
What work icnmlncd after tho strike
was declined was cleared away on Sat
urday. As no trains are moving on the
road, no coal being transported, ail tho
collieries, washcries, etc, being closed,
there is nothing to engage the clerks.
Hence their suspension.
Tho coal Inspectots of the company
are Included In the order, as there Is
no effort being made' to operate even
this several waMiertes which the On
tailo and Western controls between
hero and Scranton.
IL might be said that only a handful
of men are at work on tills illusion of
the Ontario and Western. As the mad
Is practically tied up, few cars moving
and engines being lined up in the yard,
the shop hands at Mayfleld yard have
been laid olf. In all, clerks, shop hands
and trainmen, there are over 1!00 men
out of work on theJDutnrlo nnd Wcst
prn. The Erie has laid off Its otllce help.
This order, however, does not affect so
many as the Ontario and Western.
Tho Delaware and Hudson has not
issued a suspension order, but it is
looked for almost any day this week.
Tho clerks are now getting their work
up to date, which will take only a few
days. After this, there will bo nothing
to do, save for some of the clerks in
the freight office, nnd tho company will
bo certain not to carry any unemployed
help on its pay rolls. During tho last
coal strike, tho Delaware and Hudson
clerks were not suspended, but those
in tho Ontario and Western offices were.
Tho woik in the repair shops of the
Delaware and Hudson is necessarily
slackening, with tile consequence that
an order has been issued laying the
employes off for tho last three days of
this week. It is not known whether the
suspension will be made indefinite.
The enforced Idleness of the several
hundred men In Carbondnlo, nnd the
fear, that It may continue for a long
period, has stirred them to seek em
ployment in other Ileitis beyond the in
fluence qf tho anthracite strike. Since,
and even befoie, the strike numerous
young men began casting about for ap
pointments that would provide for them
Jn tho event of tho blight or a. strike in
this region. Some have been success
ful, and, If the prospects of a prolonged
lock-out grow, there is likely to bo a
lively exodus of young Carbondnlo men,
.n"pprec!ubly greater than after tho
abandonment of the gravity road of
tho Delaware nd Hudson.
Mercliunts Will Give Credit.
The merchants of Carbondnlo will not
cease giving" credit to their customers
during1 'the strike, unless tho Jobbers
hnuld refuse to allow credit for what

The chief factor In the merchants ar
riving at this decision was Unit the
miners from tills city did not want it
strike. They Rent four deloRUtcs who
were opposed to a strike and four who
were instructed to follow President
Mitchell's advice. The strike was not
of the making of tho Carbondnlo mens
it was only unfortunnto that their
wishes did not prevail.
The local mcrehantn say they have
not felt the eltects of the strike, as yet.
Iluslncss was as good as usual Satur
day night and there was tho. ordlnnry
volume yesterday. The buying now is
from tho money made the past month,
or saved now and then In anticipation
of a strike. It will ho a couple of
weeks before the receipts of the cash
drawer will show there Is a strike.
STRIKE CAUSES CHANGES.
Four Young Men Leave Carbondalo
for Other Fields.
Tho miners strike In causing some
changes among the young men. of the
town, many of whom are being forced
to sock other positions.
The first to leave the city by reason
of enforced idleness are Charles .T.
Mahoney and Robert Schoonover. Hoth
were employed In the cigar factory
of P. J. Collins, ns cigar makers. On
Saturday night they suspended work
and yesterday they loft for the K.i3t,
intending to locate In Roston, Mass.,
where tho prospects of steady employ
ment at their trade are bright.
Jtlr Mahoney and Mr. Schoonover
made themselves exceedingly popular
among a wide circle of friends in Car
bondalc, since locating here. The
former Is from lilnghumton and the
latter from Honesdale. Roth are fore
most among tho members of the Cen
tennial Social club, Mr, Mahoney hav
ing been Measurer. Mr. Schoonover
was conspicuous In local athletics, lie
played with the "Indian foot ball team
and has won prizes In athletic con
tests. Their departure will be regret
ted by a host of well-wishing friends.
Thomas Joyce and Casper Benson,
who likewise leave many friends behind
in Carbondalo, departed Inst evening
fu- Chicago, where positions await
them. Roth were Delaware & Hudson
A SOURCE OF DANGER.
This Is How Citizens Regard Re
moval of Gate-tender at Lookout
Crossing of D. & H. Will Petition
Councils to Keep Man There.
The property owners In the vicinity
of Lookout mossing of the Delaware
& Hudson arc aroused over the order
of tho railroad people of a few days
ago, removing Edward Kenworthy, the
man who lowered and raised tho safety
gates at this point, and transferring
him to another place down the valley.
The crossing is now without the' pro
tection that the citizens feel v their
safety demands and their voices are
making n. chorus of vigorous protests
against what they denounce ns a
source of great danger. Those protests.
The Tilbuno has been informed of by
residents of the vicinity of tho crossing
will ho voiced in a petition to councils,
asking that Iho Delaware & Hudson
company, bo directed to maintain a
man In the signal tower in place of
Kenworthy whose station has been
changed Tho operator In the tower is
supposed to do the work, hut the com
plaining residents say that his duties
will not permit him to give the gates
tho attention they call for. He is
obliged to report tho passing of trains,
taking their number, etc., which takes
his tlino and attention. Half tho time
he has no opportunity to lower the
gates. This condition prevailed, tlicy
declare, dulng the last strike. The
gateman was temporal lly removed, as
now and several times a day, it Is
claimed, no gates were loweicd; the
crossing was unguarded and teamsters
or persons could rush unchecked Into
the path of danger. It is the purpose to
pi event a repetition of these dangers
and the steps for tho presentation of
the petition nro now under way.
The Lookout crossing Is extremely
dangerous. Fourteen passenger trains
on the main lino pass the crossing
each way every day, and four each
way on the Honesdale branch. Re
sides theie are scores of coal and
freight trains, though tho coal trains
are not running these days. A3 the
passenger trains lly past at top speed,
almost, and tho roadway over the cros
sing Is traveled constantly, there is
grave concern over the lack of protec
tion that it is claimed exists.
The Close of the Season.
Thcro will be a fitting close to tho
theatrical season In Carbondalo with
tho presentation of Augustus Thomas'
"Arizona" at tho Grand on Saturday.
"Arizona" is a play that bus met
with popular npprovul because of the
picturesque types It so faltfully pres
ents. The play is a greater educator,
for It presents a true plcturo of a
picturesque part of our country tho
wilds of Arizona, In a manner that
could not be possible through tho uso
of n roomful of histories. The play is
so splendidly staged that it will bo
n. treat to Carbondallans. Next to
"Tho Ronnie Rrler Rush,' it will rank
ns tho best production ever booked

WANTS AN OPINION
ABOUT WATER BONDS
Common Council After Protracted
Discussion Postpones Passing Or
dinance for Repeal of Municipal
Water "Plant " Bonds Until City
Solicitor Gives His Opinion Both
The municipal water question in Car
bondalo bids fair td lead to Interminable
discussion. There was another phase of
the project ventilated In common coun
cil last night until some of the mem
bers spoke twice or more during the
The protracted discussion was pro
voked by the reporting of the ordinance
repealing the bond Issue of $143,000,
which Mr.-Stone Introduced at the last
meeting of Common council. Some
members ofcouncll want the bonds re
pealed in order that money may be
procured for the liquidation of even
some of the city's expense's, which are
piling up like a hay stack In the midst
of u Held of hay makers in harvest
time. Other councllmen believe that
the bonds should be left undisturbed
until the Injunction suit be fully dis
posed of by the lower court. The
council -for the city shares in this "view,
that tho bonds should be untouched
until the supreme court either affirms
or over rules Judge Halsey's opinion.
The opinions were plainly expressed
!nst night and in making a fight for
postponing action those who were op
posed to disposing of the matter now,
fought for a postponment until the city
solicitor's written opinion as to the
regularity of either course be obtained.
This side led by Mr. Nealon was suc
cessful. Action was postponed until
City Solicitor Stuart could present a
written opinion. This resolution of
couise is subject to the action of select
In the discussion Messrs. Nealon,
Whitfield and Hobbs opposed im
mediate action, while Messrs. Stone,
Thompson, Masters and Salem argued
In favor df repealing the bonds In order
to relievo the city's finances. Subse
quently Mr. Salem Inclined to the other
side and it wafiihlSninotlon t6 postpone
action that prevailed.
Tho other Important matter of coun
cil was the passage on two readings of
Chairman Masters ordinance for addi
tional arc lights.
Tho other business of tho session
were the adoption of the following res
olutions: Ry Mr. Thompson Dlrestlng that tho
city water bo turned on in the drink
ing fountains and in Memorial park
from G a. m. to 10 p. m.
By Mr. Whltiield That the Joint
building committee effect the needed
repairs oa the city building.
There was a license ordinance Im
posing a tax on all venders, which Mr.
Mr. Whitfield brought before council
what uppearcd to be too rapid running
of curs by the Scranton Railway com
pany. No action wns taken, though
Chairman Masters jocularly suggested
that cyclometers bo placed on the
wheels of the trolley cars' to keep tabs
On Mr. Stone's suggestion, tho city
engineer will inquire Into the rotten
condition of the roadway on either
side of tho trolley tracks on Belmont
In Select Council.
Tho most important measure dis
posed of at tho meeting of select coun
cil was the adoption of resolutions
providing for n surface spwer on Arch

Tho resolution covering tho sewer
dispute of John AVaterfleld and one
similar involving tho property of Mrs.
