Andrew Wlluszkl, of Bellovue, received
a letter from his sister In tho old conn-
Chronic Diarrhoea.
This disease Is generally regarded as
Incurable, mainly fop the reason that
tho remedies usually employed uro Inef
fectual. That it cun bo cured, however,
has been fully proven in inuny cases,
The following tells or one of them: Mr.
T. W. Greathouse, of Prattsuurg, Ga.,
Bays: "I had been suffering' from
chronic diarrhoea for seven years, Last
year I began taking Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy,
and t das entirely cured me. I had
spent lots or money for doctors' medi
cine In the run of seven years. If it had
not been for this remedy I would have
been dead now, and I feel thut I can
never suy too much In Its favor or rec
ommend It too highly." Sold by All
try some months ngo, Ashing him to ml
vanuo her tho monos' to iuy her passage
to this country. Bho wanted to marry
Leopold HnntlowBkl upon her arrival
here, nnd as soon as tho marriage wns
consummated she promised to pay over
the money. Andrew Bent her $G!i and she
paid her way over, mot tho waiting Leo
pold nnd wits married. Her brother has
sought In vain to scouro tho payment of
this money, but Kate refused to pay It
over. As n last resort, he secured n
warrant from Magistrate Millar, charg
ing her with false pretenses. She was
held miilcr $!0u ball for her appenrahco
In court.
Fortune favored tho Symphony orches
tra Inst night In the delightful coolness
of tho atmosphere, although so late In
the season. Tho Lyceum was well tilled,
and this was a tribute not only to tho
favor in which the orchestta Is held, but
also tho popularity or Miss Grace Spen
cer. The concert was given under tho direc
tion of Fred C. Uuml and Miss Kdlth
Jones, nnd Its success wus a credit to
their enterprise. No such uudlencc has
been present at previous concerts of the
kind, 1'rof. llcmherger was welcomed
with enthusiasm.
The beuutlrul woik of the orchestra
was certainly a triumph for Professor
Hemberger and those who have followed
bis direction during these yeurs.
Ueothoven's Klghth Symphony was a
happy opening of u fascinating pro
gramme. The oichestra's work In tho
llrst movement left little room for ad
verse crltlcNm. There was an exquisite
adjustment of the ensemble nnd this
sublime composition was really the most
thoroughly enjoyable of anything ever
attempted by the orchestra. It Is to be
hoped that repetitions of this composition
will be given often. The two little ,inter
mezzos by Lund and Victor Herbert were
gems In their rendition, and the Auber
overture made a llttlng flnnle.
The Ochs number, tho variations on a
German Folk Song, was exceedingly well
done and probably Interested tho stu
dents of good music Immensely, but It Is
a travesty on the so-called culture of the
public that the only selection outside
those given by Miss Spencer which re
ceive spontaneous recognition and en
thusiastic applause was tbe encore where
a Sousn imitation of the same pretty
theme was played.
If our music lovers were proud of their
orchestra Inst night, what shall be said
of tho prima donna of tno occasion, Miss
Spencer? This talented gill, with her
sjately, gracious presence, and her rarely
lovely voice, l- one of whom Scrunton
may well feel proud. Belonging to one of
Its oldest families, sue is about as truly
a Scrunton product as could well bo
She gave a programme at once ambi
tious and Interesting, and one In which
her extr.ioidlnary dramatic temperament
could be appreciated. Of tho two gieat
arias, tho 111 sL was rather more pleasing,
because of the sentiment Into which Miss
Spencer threw herself so completely. Sin
has a mezzo olce, in which the rich
contralto Is so prominent that nil tho
delicious charm of the lower register
sweeps without a break Into superb up
per tones.
The Ambrolse Thomas song was nmong
the most attractive selections which Miss
Spencer gave. The Grieg number, so well
known, was adequately Interpreted.
She responded to several encores,
among tho songs being: Tosti's "Goorl
Ttye," and a Spring song. She was the
recipient nf ns many flowers as a sweet
girl graduate.

Nothing Will Be Accomplished To
wards Securing Concessions or Ar
bitration by the Interference of
the National Administration Ac
cording to the Views of the Local
Representatives of the Operators.
First Penalizing for Breach of the
Peace by Strikers. f
Local representatives of the coal com
panies deny emphatically that there is
any movement afoot to open up a few
centrally located collieries with men to
be contributed by each of tho com
panies. "That Is one thing we have no
thought of doing," suld Vice-President
K. K. I.oomls, head of the Delaware,
Lackawanna nnd Western coal .depart
ment, who ran up from New York yes
terday, to look over the situation. "For
the present we are content to confine
our efforts to keeping the mines from
being Hooded nnd getting out some culm
fuel for our own use. Tho time for
stnrtlng up the collieries Is not ripe."
Another prominent coal man said
that It would be time enough to tulle
of starting up the collieries when some
thing wns to be gained by It. At pres
ent, he said, the only thing that would
come of It would be possible disorder.
It may not be long, however, he ndded,
before conditions may warrant nn ef
fort to resume operations generally by
starting a few collieries here and there.
Little faith Is had by the local repre
sentatives of the coal companies, in
anything tangible being nccompllshed
towards a settlement of the strike by
the Interference of tho administration tit
Washington. One of them who was in
communication yesterday with two of
the coal presidents, said he was more
firmly convinced than ever that the
operators will not budge an Inch from
the stand they have taken, no matter
what pressure Is brought to bear on
them, and no matter what may be tho
consequences of their steadfastness.
"What can he do any more than any
body else?" is the general response that
comes to a question to the operators'
side, as to what will be tho likely re
sults of President Roosevelt's Interfer
ence. They view tho president's ac
tivity as being inspired by Senator
Hanna and the Civic Federation and
that in itself would be enough to Induce
thp operators to look upon it with any
thing but kindly glances. The opera
tors fpel that but for Hanna and tho
Civic Federation the miners would not
have ventured a strike. It Is proposed
that Hanna and the Federation shall
encourage no more strikes.
Speaking along this line yesterday, a
superintendent said: "Nothing can
come of outside Interference. Arbitra
tion in this case is simply another name
for concession, as it will of course mean
"split the difference." Concessions will
have the disastrous effect of increasing
the prestige of the mine workers lead
ers and their allies, the Civic Federa
tion and Mark Hanna. This would
mean that the present conditions would
gradually grow worse until they be
came intolerable. The miners have pre
cipitated a tight and the operators Have
decreed that it will be a fight to a fin
ish. It will not be settled by outside In
telligence." As nn instance of the conditions
which were threatening to become "in
tolerable," the superintendent cited the
case of an Old Forge initio where thir
ty chambers had been "boycotted" and
closed to all members of the union, by
order of the local, because men who
had been working in them had been
disciplined for violation of rules
Locally there were no unusual devel
opments In the situation. The week
started in with conditions about tho
same as prevailed during the four pre
ceding weeks. There was the usual ad
ditions to the ranks of the strikers,
with about the same number of recruits
dispatched by the companies to take
their places.
George Llghthall. of ClUcago, Inter
national president of the Stationary
Engineers, came to the city yesterday
to join with the mine workers In efforts
to call out the engineers still at work.
At a meeting In Peckvllle Sunday
night Rockmen's union No. 8.6S4 decid
ed to refrain from working during the
strike. These men are employed In
sinking shafts and driving tunnels.
There are about L'50 of them In the
Another squad of twenty Delaware,
Lackawanna and Western employes re
ceived their commissions as coal and
iron police nnd were sworn In yesterday
by Recorder Emil Bonn.
Teamsters employed by the Scranton
Railway company to haul culm from
the Luzerne dump at the "Notch" were
put to flight yesterday by a crowd of
stone throwers.
A mass meeting of mine workers,
pumprunners, llremen and engineers
was held in St. David's hall, West
Scranton, yesterday afternoon, at which
addt esses were delivered by District
Organizer Courtrlght Executive Board
Member Henley, National President
Llghtall, of Chicago, head of tho Na
tional Organization of Stationary Engi
neers, and District President Thomas
D. Nlcholls, of tho United Mine Work
ers of America,
The object of tho meeting was to en
list the sympathy and co-operation ot
tho men who remain at work about the
mines, and to have them join In tho
general movement for an eight-hour
Tho meeting was culled to order by
Organizer Courtrlght, who referred to
tho strugglo of tho intiio workers In
1900, and how they helped the engi
neers, pumprunneis and firemen about
the mines to obtain better conditions,
lie expressed the hope that all those
who are not now Identllied with tho
movement for a shorter workday will
Join und help make It a victory for nil
who are employed In and about the
National President Llghthnll stated,
thut at Plttston but one man refused
to join In tho suspension when culled
Ho put the question directly to the
men, "Do you want eight hours?" and
the response was quite general from
the assemblage, although a large ma
jority of then" were mine workers. His
contention was that the men wno re
main at work have no reason to bo
pleaded for, as thry should one und all
quit, If they expect to guln the shorter
work day.
In speaking about the humiliation
wives and children of men who remain
at work are subjected to, Mr, Llghthnll
said, they might better have their
fathers hung' than have them prove
traitors to the cause of labor.
He characterized the coal nnd Iron
police as a lot of ten-cent lodging house
bums from the slums of Chicago, and
predicted great victory for united labor
under the banner of the American Fed
eration of Labor, which will sweep tho
country In due time. In closing he sold
to the men, "For God's sake, If not for
your own sake, conic out with the
District Board Member Henley made
an Impassioned speech, In which he
stated that 08 per cent, of the firemen
are out on strike, but unfortunately
there are a few men who remain at
work In the Lackawanna valley be
tween North Scranton and Plttston.
He Intimated that the companies
have men at work trying to Influence
these men to stny at work and others
to go back, but added thut It is only a
question of a day or two before the
mine workers will control every mnn
In tho nnthrnclte region. Down the
valley, he said, everything Is practically
suspended, and the strike cannot and
will not be lost. He Implored the few
men who now stand out to quit their
jobs and Join the strikers.
District President Nlcholls wns the
last speaker, and was received with
enthusiasm. He stated the object of
the meeting was to get all the men
now at work to Join the general move
ment, but added there Is enough men
out already to Insure a victory. They
am not fighting, he said, as mine work
ers and tracklayers alone, but for nil
men who are employed In and about
the mines,
There has been a misunderstanding,
he said, but since President Llghthall
has been here, this has been cleared up,
nnd will result In a victory for all con
cerned. As the fight stands, he said to the en
gineers nnd pump runners, you are
fighting for yourselves for an eight
hour day, and the question Is, "Will
you make a stand for It?"
Mr. Nlcholls took exceptions to edi
torial utterances In The Tribune and
said ho would like to know If peaceful
supplication ever obtained anything for
the worklngman. What they want, ho
said, Is some of the money made off
coal mining, and they arc trying to got
some of the profits, and the operators
can easdly afford to give the men an
eight hour day. As It stands today.
there Is nothing left for them to do but
to continue the struggle, for success,
and he predicted that they will soon
have mine bosses and superintendents
leaving their jobs and Joining the ranks
of tho strikers. Everything points to
success, he said, and all the men need
Is grit, and sand to keep the wheels
from slipping.
'At the close of his address President
Nlcholls requested all who were not in
cluded In the number of whom the
meeting was called for, to leave the
hall, nnd all but a few departed. A se
crpt conference was then held, at which
ways and means were discussed for
reaching and influencing tho men who
were at work to quit and joint the gen
eral movement.
Tho first arrests for disorder in con
nection with the coal strike to be made
In this city since the struggle began
four weeks ago wero made yesterday
morning when Thomas Mahan and
Michael McNnmara, two striking mine
workers residing in West Scranton,
were taken Into custody by the police.
Tho specific charge against the men
wns disorderly conduct and malicious
mischief. At a hearing before Magis
trate Millar yesterday morning Mrs.
Thomas Morgan testified that an effigy
of her husband was hung in front of
her home on Saturday night by Malum
and McNamara. Her husband, she ex
plained, lias been working since tio
strike began nnd has incurred the dis
pleasure of many of his neighbors for
so doing. '
Mrs. Morgan went out and cut the
figure down and was greeted with hoots
and jeers and calls of "scab," from a
large crowd of onlookers as she did so.
The effigy was hung up again and
when she went out to cut it down a
second time she was obliged to beat a
hasty retreat because of a fusilade of
stones which were thrown at her. The
house was pelted with stones after she
had entered.
She positively Identified both Mahan
and McNamara as having been the
ringleaders of the crowd which sur
rounded her house. They were fined $30
each by Magistrate Millar and paid
over that amount without delay.
Magistrate Millar also Issued a war
rant yesterday for the arrest of John
Thomas, of Taylor, who Is accused of
having threatened the life of Robert
Potter, a man employed at the Taylor
City Solicitor Looking Up an Inter
esting Point.
City Solicitor Watson is looking up
an Interesting question at the request
of City Controller Costello.
The controller believes that if certuln
work Is done for the city, and that tho
total cost comes under $250 that a con
tract must be entered Into unless the
work is of a trivial nature. The "rip
per" bill provides that no contract
amounting to over $250 shall be let,
except to the lowest responsible bidder,
after bids huvo been ndvertlsed for. It
is contended by some that this section
of the bill Implies that If the amount
Is lesB than $250 no contract Is required.
The controller has taken the prelim
inary stand that a contract is required
In such enses, and he says ho will hold
to this position until assured by the
city solicitor thnt It Is not a tenable
