THE MODEL RAILROAD.
Party of Nowspaper Men Enjoyed a
Rldo Over It to New York
That the Jersey Central, since Its In
corporation ns part of the Reading sys
tem, Intends to enter into more active
competition than In the past for busi
ness In all the communities that It
serves was plainly and forcefully stated
In an address made by General Mali
nger W. G. Besler Thursday afternoon
in tho cabin of the steamer Sandy Hook,
to a party of newsmmer worknrs on-
Joying a day's pleasant outing as the
guests of that comnanv.
Mr. Eeslcr said that the new manage
ment had adopted as Its motto: "The
Jersey Central, the model railroad," and
would proceed as soon as possible to
make that motto a recognized fact. As
a token of good faith, tho statement
may be added that new passenger
coaches of handsome design and spaci
ous accommodation have been ordered
and an overhauling of the entire motive
power and rolling stock begun. "A
pleased patron the best advertisement"
was Mr. Besler's way of emphasizing
the company's purpose.
The excursionists to whom these re
marks were addressed had left Scran
ton In a special train at 7 o'clock on
ihursday morning, and they returned
shortly after midnight yesterday morn
ing after a delightful run to Jersey
City, whence a ferry had taken them to
Pier 8 on the Manhattan side, and a,
ride enjoyed down the bay to Atlantic
Highlands. The guests included repre
sentatives of the newspapers along the
line, with sisters, sweethearts and
wives, and their comfort was gener
ously ministered to by General Super
intendent W. C. Huntington, whose pri
vate car had been attached to tho sn.
clal as an observation car for the ladles;
General Passenger Agent C. M. Burt
ana ins assistant, Mr. Hope, and Dis
trict Passenger Agent J. S. Swisher.
Dinner was served on the Sandy Hook
during the outward voyage and supper
at the station restaurant at Allentown.
General Manager Besler was asked by
a Tribune reporter what plans he had
In view for the upbuilding of passenger
and freight traffic in the Scranton dis
trict. While not caring to disclose these
in detail, he said that if first-class ser
vice and the most modern equipment
could Influence business the road would
surely get an increased share of it. The
new Quaker city express, he said, has
more than fulfilled expectations and a
new and greatly Improved schedule for
local and New York traffic Is among tho
Accompanying the party on the boat
was Mr. Besler's father, general man
ager of tho C. B. & Q. railroad.
Swarthmore College, Swarthmore,
Thlq institution was founded by the
Society of Friends, and has always
been conducted with a view to promot
ing the principles for which that re
ligious body stands. Its work, how
ever, Is by no means sectarian but Is
intended to promote, In tho highest de
gree, that sense of individual responsi
bility which makes for true manhood
or womanhood. Having no desire to
make It anything but a "Small Col
lege," Its management has been able
to maintain that intimacy of contact
between professor and student which
is rarely possible In a great university
and which Is probably the greatest
force In any institution tending to tho
development of character. The situa
tion of the college helps In the same
direction. Beautifully located, sur
rounded by two hundred acres of lawn
and grove, It overlooks a superb stretch
of country extending away to tho Dela
ware, while clustered about the camp
us Is tho village, occupied largely by
families connected In one way or an
other with the Interests of tho college,
and by the elevation of its moral tone
presenting a strong contrnst to tho
communities In which somo less Va
vored Institutions are placed. Still an
other assistance in the maintenance of
healthy college life is the natural
grouping of young men nnd women,
under tho samo roof, maintaining as

nearly as possible the condltIons"vhIch
obtain In n cultivated home, and free
from the unnatural elements, which so
frequently make college life destruc
tive of the liner traits of character.
Each of tho four courses of study of
fered by tho college provides a liberal
range of electlvcs, nnd whether one
enters classics, letters, science or en
gineering, ho cannot receive the
Swarthmore diploma without having
achieved a liberal education. Then
there is Intelligent physical training.
The college has not only maintained
an excellent record in competitive ath
letics, but has given careful Btudy to
the problem of building up, In the best
possible manner, the bodily vigor of
each Individual student. This has
given Swarthmore a remarkable health
record, and, what is still better, has in
frequent instances rescued from dan
ger young men and women about
whose future health and strength there
was Just cause for ' concern. There
may be better places for young people
who merely want the fame of "going
through" college. Swarthmore Is for
earnest people, with the serious pur
pose to make tho most of life.
THE VIADUCT ORDINANCE.
Changes of Procedure That Have
Taken Place Since It Was Passed.
The Supreme court has decided that
the viaduct ordinance passed a year
and a half ago Is legal and binding,
but no definite action looking toward
the erection of the viaduct will be
taken at once.
The ordinance directs tho city clerk
to advertise for bids for the construc
tion of the viaduct Immediately after
Its passage. City Clerk Lavelle said
yesterday that he has given the mat
ter no consideration as yet but it is
probable that ho will consult the re
corder before doing anything. The lat
ter Is expected home from Virginia
The ordinance now declared Jegal
was framed when Scranton was oper
ating under third, class, city laws and
complications mayf result in this par
ticular. It provides 'that tho bids for
the construction of the viaducb shall
ho received and opened and the con
tract awarded by couiicils. The "rip
per" bill took the awarding of con
tracts entirely out of the hands of
councils and vested It solely In the re
corder and head of the proper depart
ment. The ordinance In question provides
for the construction of a viaduct from
curb to curb on West Lackawanna
avenue between Seventh nnd Ninth
streets, the cost of construction to be
borne jointly by the Scranton railway
and Delaware, Lackawanna and West
ern companies, the city to pay all re
A BIG SEASON ASSURED.
Lodore Will Be the Mecca for Ex
cursionists the Coming Season.
All Indications point to Lake Lodore
as the most popular of all excursion re
sorts for the fast-approaching season,
and to even surpass its immense busi
ness of last year. The individual ex
cursionist prefers a lake resort, and the
Kcenlc beauties of Lodore itself, Us far-
spreading grove, Incomparable dance
pavilion, its merry-go-round, the de
light of the children, Its well-equipped
kitchens, clam oven, refreshment
booths, Spalding ball grounds, naphtha
launches, steamer, largo excursion boat
and varied other amusements render It
a summer paradise, and at tho same
time tho most profit-making resort for
churches and societies. There are some

Next Monday Brief Mention of
the Out-of-town Men Who Are to
Act as Adjudicators of the Musical
and Literary Competitions.
The diagram of scats for holders of
courso tickets to the national eistedd
fod and tho preceding night's concert
opened yesterday at the executive com
mittee's headquarters, 003 Linden
street, opposite the court house. Be
fore the day was over 600 of the 1,800
reserved seats were marked off. Three
hundred of the?o seats have been set
aside for out-of-town patrons. This
leaves only 600 of these seats still avail
able, On Monday the diagram for the
single ticket reserved scats will open.
Thoro re 2,000 of these. Altogether
there will be 8,000 seats, and from all
Indications there will bo none of them
vacant at any of the sessions of tho
eisteddfod or the concert. The com
mittee will give notice In the papers
when the scats ure all disposed of.
It is a surety there will be no vacant
scats the night of the concert. To hear
Mile. Belle Newport, Gwllym Miles nnd
H. Evan Williams for 25 cents is an
opportunity fev will want to miss.
The committee Is priding Itself par
ticularly on the prominence of tho
men It has secured ai adjudicators.
.No eisteddfod In this country has had
such an array of Illustrious musicians
and literary critics to judge in Its com
petitions. THE ADJUDICATORS.
Of Walter Damrosch suffice it to say
that he has been recently engaged as
conductor of the New York Philhar
monic society to succeed Emll Paur.
J. W. Parson Price, a prize pupil of
Garcia, is now recognized as the lead
ing musical artist and teacher of all
Welsh-America, and New York regards
him as one'of the greatest composers,
directors and teachers of voice culture.
He was recently paid the nice compli
ment of being selected from among all
of New York's musicians to compose
the music to the "Cloth of Gold" song
which Miss Julia Marlowe sings in
"When Knighthood Was In Flower."
Mr. Price has been musical adjudicator
at more elsteddfodau than any other
Jenkln Powell Jones, of Painesvllle,
O., while not very well known In the
east, Is nevertheless a noted musician.
His only appearance In these parts ns
an adjudicator was at the Robert Mor
ris lodge eisteddfod. He made such
an excellent impression that he was
one of the very first picked upon by the
committee of the national eisteddfod
when It was casting about for adjudi
cators. The Cincinnati, Racine and
Denver elsteddfodau each had Mr.
Jones as one of the adjudicators.
JUDGES OF LITERARY CONTESTS.
G. H. Humphrey, who with Judge H.
M. Edwards and Prof. George Howell,
will adjudicate the literary contests,
is a Utica lawyer. Besides being a lead
ing member of the bar he Is a noted
Welsh writer and in English literature
has attainments 'of the highest order.
An evidence of his versatility Is
found In the fact that in the McKinley
campaigns he delivered political
speeches in English, Welsh and Ger
