Board of Charities to Ask City for
At a meeting of tho Doaul of Asso
ciated Charities Inst night It was de
cided to nsk tho city councils to appro
priate a sum of money to assist the
board In Its work, The report of the
agent, Mrs. V D. Duggan, was to tho
effect that fully one-half of the cases
handled by tho board would naturally
fall upon the city If the board did not
exist. Without the board a police mat
ron would become ft necessity. Some
years ngo the city councils appropriat
ed a sum each year for similar work
but tho practice Was discontinued. It
wu3 thought that the city could well
afford to do something for the board'
In consideration of the amount It saves.
A committee was appointed to wait
upon tho reeoider and dlrcotor of pub
lic safety and present the matter to
them. The committee consists of Col
onel 13. II. Ripple, llev. Rogers Israel,
D. D., Samuel nines, John Gibbons and
Conrad Sehroedcr. Mrs. W. B. Dug
gan will accompany the committee.
Mrs. Duggan called the attention of
tho board to the number of children
who are on tho streets who ought to
be In school. Sho gave It as her opin
ion that Ihcio ought ijb be four or five
truant ofllcers In tho city. Some of
them ought to be women as they had
been tried in other cities and proved
The report of tho treasurer showed
that there was $33.92 in the treasury,
but bills for more than that amount
were passed by the board subsequently.
The agent's report showed that Blnce
the last meeting In Mach 24 there had
been 243 applications for relief, of
which 130 were Investigated.
Mrs. Duggan reported that for the
last week sho had been besieged by
men who are looking for work.
BIG CROWDS SAW
THE BIG CIRCUS
Diavolo's Looping the Loop on
Bicycle the Most Daring Feat
Ever Seen Here.
The Forepaugh-Sells circus, that stu
pendously satisfying spectacle, combin
ing among its many features graceful
gymnasts, comical clowns, wonderful
wire-walkers, beautiful bare-back rld
ers.artlstlc oerlalists, agile acrobats
and clever 'cyclists, provoked pro
longed and pronounced plaudits from
two big audiences yesterday.
The performance given contained a
number of new and novel acts and a
number of tho old, inevitable standbys,
but It was on a par with any circus
performance given in this city in re
cent yeais. The great big feature, of
course, was Diavalo's "dare-devil and
death-defying" ride around the loop on
a bicycle. This was held until the end
of the show at the afternoon perform
ance, and the people were thus kept off
the track during the hippodrome ritccs.
The big loop around which Dlavalo
rides ran half the length of the big
tent. A track about five feet wide,
starting at the top of the tent, ran
down to the floor on a rather sharp in
cline and thence around in a perfect
circle some fifteen or more feet high.
Dlavalo, after being introduced by a
stentorian voiced announcer us "the
marvel of the new century," walked up
the Incline and took the bicycle held
for him by a waiting super. After a
moment's hesitation he raised his hands
as a signal and then, grasping the
handlebars firmly, started down the In
cline. The wheel came down at a fear
ful rate of speed, but when It reached
the loop it slowed up perceptibly but
went around at a fulrly lively rate.
Women gave little screams as the rider
was head downward, but an instant
later he was off his wheel and bowing
to the audience. It takes him just six
seconds from the time of his start to
the moment he alights from his wheel.
Another sensational feature was the
performance given by five bicycle riders
on the new inclined bicycle track. This
Is a circular track made of wooden
slats, set an Inch apart at an angle of
about seventy-five degrees. It was only
twenty feet across, und when a rider
got his wheel going on It both himself
and the machine were in an almost
horizontal position, requiring him to
attain a high rate of speed to main
tain his equilibrium. Yet five riders
rode on this small track at once, each
flying around at breakneck speed and
each apparently just about to fall off.
This act provoked more applause than
What Is unquestionably the best
aerial act ever witnessed in this city is
given by the Peerless Potters, ten In
number, who work on four trapezes
and who do a series of double back
somerfnults from hand to hand that
sets peoplo's nerves tingling.
Minting, who was seen here two years
ago at the Elks' street fair, repeated
his well-known act of riding up and
down a spiral track on a single wheel.
lie repeated also his old trick of fall
ing down just as ho nears the top and
mnklnpr his audience Imagine that ho
had a terribly narrow escape from in-
Jury, The thing is mj deliberately
planned and so eleveily worked out
that It fools tho majority ot the people.
At the evening performance thoio
wus another Immense throng. All but
a few of the unreserved scats wore
occupied. Every reserved seat includ
ing thoso in the nlsle were disposed of,
The daring loop-the-loop bicyclo act
was cheered as pohslbly no circus uct
ever befoie was cheered In Scrnnton.
Mlas Attiessl, one of the lady Jock
eys In tho hippodrome races, met with
an accident thut sent a thrill of horror
through tho thousands of onlookers,
Ab she was about to turn Into the
dressing room after her race, her horse
collided with u donkey cart that was
about to bo started In tho succeeding
race. Hor horse shied and threw her,
but her foot caught In tho stirrup and
sho was carded down the track with
nor nowiug nuir trailing the ground.
Some nf the circus hands quickly cap
tut ed the horse and teleased the rider
from her perilous position. She was n
a faint wten carried to tho di easing
room,. but revived shortly, and was all
right In an hour.

WORKING OX WASHEBIES, PRO
Crowd of 1,500 Forces the Grassy
Island Washery, at Olyphant, to
Shut Down, and a Female Strike
Sympathizer Assaults Foreman
Lewis Six Men Attacked by a
Mob of Two Hundred at tho Butler
Washery, Near Cork Lane Shoot-
, Ing at Avoca and Inkerman.
Trouble has already begun as a result
of the mine workers' efforts to prevent
the operation of culm washerles, More
or less serious disturbances were re
ported yesterday from Olyphant, Cork
Lane, Avoca and Inkermnn.
Monday night tho five Olyphant locals
of the United Mine Workers decided to
make a concerted move to urcvent tho
operation of the Delaware and Hudson
company's Grassy Island washery. Yes
terday morning nt daybreak fifteen
hundred strikers formed a nlckot line
about tho washery nnd intercepted
every man who attempted to pass. All
of the fifteen men employed at the
washery were "nersuaded" to turn
back. Some of them hesitated to obey
the strikers' "solicitations," but they
did not hesitate long.
Foreman Lewis and halt a dozen coal
and Iron police came from the washery
to order the strikers to desist In their
nlleged intimidation. Tho appearance of
the coal and Iron police had a tendency
to cause commotion among the strik
ers, and to prevent a serious uprising
the police withdrew.
CROWD SURROUNDED HIM.
Foreman Lewis remained to argue
with the strikers, and while surrounded
by a large crowd was set upon by a big
Hungarian woman, who knocked the
hat from his head into a pool of water.
This act incited some of the hot-headed
members of tho crowd to surge threat
eningly about the foreman, but more
thoughtful ones interfered and ure
vented further assaults.
The washery did not work during the
day, but the company declares it will
be worked today.
Last evening, at 5 o'clock, as six for
eigners employed at the Butler wash
ery of the Pennsylvania Coal eoirpany
at Cork Lane, near Plttston, weie re
turning from work, a crowd of two
hundred men and boys set upon them
and gave them a brutal beating. It was
reported that one of them had his eye
blinded. The workmen got away from
the mob and fled down the lane to
Broad street, the crowd following them
Into the very heart of Plttston. They
finally managed to elude their pur
suers. Tuesday night, at Avoca, a number
of shots were fired from ambush In the
neighborhood of the Elmwood wash
ery, supposedly at the ofllcers who are
watching the property at night. This
is the washery at which young James
R. Dickson was mysteriously killed yes
RESEMBLED A BULLET HOLE.
There was a story afloat that he
was shot from a distance and fell
into the flywheel. A round hole,
that closely resembled a bullet hole,
was discovered in his left breast near
the collarbone, by Undertaker Price,
when he was preparing the body for
burial. Coroner Saltry was notified and
an exhaustive examination made with
probe, knife and X-rays, but no bullet
could be found.
Shots were fired at the workmen in
No. S wa&hery of the Pennsylvania Coal
company, near Inkerman, Monday, but
they were fired from a great distance
and failed to do any harm. It was quiet
Sheriff Churles H. Schadt stated yes
terday that he has not sworn In any
deputies to guard coal companies prop

may reorganize his force if he deems it

JANES R. DICKSON
Crushed by an Engine at tho Elm
wood Washery of the Hillside
Coal and Iron Company.
James R. Dickson, a prominent young
Scrantonlan, nnd son of President A.
W. Dickson of the board of trade, met
death in a mysterious manner nt the
Elmwood washery of the Hillside Coal
and Iron company at Avoca, yesterday
He is one of the company's civil en
gineers and together with a number of
other engineers and ofllce employes,
was engaged In operating the washery
which was left without its usual hands
by reason of the miners' strike.
He was assigned to look after the
two engines which run the conveyers.
These engines are set at right angles
to each other In the open air, at a point
where the two endless-chain conveyers
dump their culm into a third conveyer
which carries it up to the washery.
On the outside of each engine is a large
fly wheel. The engineer's position is In
the angle formed by the two engines
and the engines are consequently be
tween him anil tile fly wheels, nnd be
tween him and the conveyers, are botli
tho engines and the fly wheels.
The other men operating the plant
yesterday morning were working at the
far end of one of the conveyers, a hun
dred yards distant, keeping It sup
plied with culm from the dump. The
engineer is ordinarily In full view ot
these men. Occasionally he is envel
oped In steam and shut out from view,
but this occurs only spasmodically,
The washery had been working about
an hour when one of the men -at the
end of the conveyer had occasion to go
to the weigh office. His path took him
past the engines. As he was passing
lie noticed Dickson lying limp and
motionless close up to the base of one
of the engines. Approaching he found
him dead, and his body badly disfig
ured. What caused death was unexplaln
able. It was possible that he was on
the opposite side of the other engine
oiling the machinery, stumbled against
the fly wheel and after being whirled
about was thrown to the place where
he was found dead.
The body was viewed by the coroner
of Luzerne county nnd afterwards re
moved by Undertaker Price to the fam
ily home, 616 Qulncy avenue.
The father was in New York attend
ing the sessions of the Presbyterian
General Assembly when appraised of
the tragic news. He arrived home at
6.60 last evening, accompanied by his
pastor, Rev. James McLeod, D, D.
The unfortunate young man was
twenty-five years ot age, and had a
most promlslng'future. He was a gradu
ate of Princeton and had already won
several promotions In the engineering
corps to which ho was attached. Per
sonally, he was an exemplary young
man of whom every acquaintance
spoke In tho highest terms of praise.
His untimely death Is a sad blow to
his family and a great hoBt of friends.
Tho deceased was a brother of Mrs.
Blanchard, widow of tho lute Dr.
George Blanchard, nnd Rev. Spencer
Dickson, of Pleasant Point, N. J. He
was a nephew of Rev, James Stuart
Dickson of Philadelphia.
The funeral will take plaro Thursday
afternoon with services at the family
residence at 2,30 p. in.
