bout 7.30 o'clock lust night and

alarm was sounded shortly af-
as. The two foundt les and pat-

pry frame building-, which was
Inly a year ago by the company.

bndred and twenty long. To the

and the machine shops.

of these properties sustained the
least loss. Jinny contradictory reports
were given, as to the origin of the fire,
some claiming that it started In the
cupola, at the right of the building,
I while the more general and accepted
Isupposltlon was that It originated In
'tho brass foundry.
The latter department was on the
ground floor, at the left of the building.
It was divided by a partition from the
iron foundry, and above It were located
the pattern shops.
TWO WATCHMEN ON DUTY.
There were two watchmen on duty,
but neither discovered the blaze until!
it had already made good headway?
The alarm was turned in by a young
man, In the draughting ofTlce.and engine
ffampanles No. 4 and C and hose com
panies No. 1 and No, 2 responded.
Hose company No. 4 and the hook and
ladder company responded to the sec
i' on.una.ieiy me me room oi me L,aee
works Is'locatcd close by the pump com
pany's plant, and at the first alarm
their employes directed two steady
streams on the lire and did excellent
crvlce in confining the blaze to the
lie building. The fire companies, on
Lieir arrival, directed two streams on
Le building, which by that time, was a
iplote mass of roaring, crackling
ip. Superintendent H. F. Fcrbcr
his men did splendid woik, but
Ivas too late to save the building, and
fact that the blaze did not
lad speaks volumes for their cf-

liny No. 4, the old Crystals, was
struck by a falling timber, while fight
ing the fire. . The force of the blow
,. felled and severely bruised him, but,
I after a short while, he was back at
work again. Superintendent Fcrbcr
was struck in the foot by a small piece
of iron which fell from the roof, and
the pain caused him considerable an
noyance. Captain Bailey and William
George, of Engine company No. 5, weie
t both slightly burned about the hands.
. Within an hour from the time of the
companies' arrival, they had the lire
I-under control, but the timbers blazed
nnd smoldered dangerously all night
- WILL KEBUILD AT" ONCE,
president John Fowler, of the Steam
Pump Manufacturing company, de
clared to a Tribune man that an at
tempt would be made to resume work
as usual this morning, and operations
will be Immediately begun on a new
building. All of the apparatus and ma-
j chlncry destroyed last night was of
the most modern design, a very ex
pensive steel crane being part of
the structure's equipment. Consider
able loss was sustained in the destruc
tion of a number of valuable patterns.
I All the drawings of the company
were fortunately cuivcd, but with that
exception, lltllu was removed from the
burning building. All attempts to dis
cover the cause of the fire were futile.
Superintendent Ferber examined the
two watchmen, but neither of them was
1 able to throw the slightest light on
THE GREATEST WATCHMAKER.
Somo Pages from the Instructive
Biography of D. H. Church.
1'jom the July Success.
Not very many years ago, D. H,
Church was an Itinerant watchmaker
a very good workman, to be sure, but
, jiut a plain artisan. Of a i ovine na
ture, he left Iho Bast, where ho wns
born half a century ago, and sought
fortune In the Went. Ills bent was for
mechanics; ho liked to tinker Willi ma
chines. In St, Pnul ho met a watch
maker named Grldley, from whom he
learned his trade. While working at
his bench OlIC ll.IV. Grldlov nlnnmvl n
cxamluo n watch Church had been at

"Maybe I might do a HU(q better,"
"Then, young man," hald Grldley,
"you Just begin and do. It all over
again, and remember this: never leiuvo
a piece of work until you have done
the. best you know how to do."
The great Matchmaker says that he
begarj to achieve success from that
day, He has always done his best,
Leaving' St,. Louis, he drifted about
the West, working at his trade. He
wanted to travel, and found a pliue
wthta watch company as an "advance
agent" for ita make of watches. Ho
was to travel through the West ahead
of thc sales agents, proclaiming the
praises of their wares, After four
weeks pn thb road, he went back to the
V 186 Wyoming Avenue.

watches ho wns carrying.
"ilcrc's your truck,". he said to the
manager, "I nm tired of trying to
make other folks believe things about
these walchca that t don't believe my
self," "Could you make any better
wntehes?" asked tho manager, Jok
ingly. "If I couldn't, I wouldn't call myself
"I'll take you nl your word, I'll set
you to work In the shops, to see whnt
you can do." '
That wns twenty years ago. Mr.
Church had not been long In the fac
tory before It wns found that he wns
n rnro genius. Ho told his employers
that their wntehes cost too much to
make. They weie .spending too much
for raw material, nnd tho wngo nccotint
"Give mo a free Imnd In this fac
tory," ho said, "and I'll save you
So Mr. Church wns made mechanical
superintendent of the works, and told
to go ahead nnd do whatever ho liked.
Ho saw that men were performing
purly mechanical operations that
might better bo done by machines,
which could work more rapidly nnd ac
curately. He set himself to the task
of devising tho wonderful automatons
that huvo made him the first watch
maker In America, If not in the world.
Mr. Church Is constantly at work, mak
ing more wonderful machines, and
more than one hundred and fifty
watchmaking machines bear his name
and the stamp of his genius. So rapid
ly does he work, that the machine shop,
where his tools are made, Is five years
behind his designs.

Henry Warren's Romance.
From the London News.
The following romance of an Emerald
Islander has been published, nnd will
be read with much sympathy and the
sincere hope that it may be true.
Henry Warren, son of u Dublin banker,
made the acquaintance of a young lady
while at college, and ultimately they
became engaged. Wan en's father died
suddenly, leaving his estate insolvent
and In debt, whereupon the young man
vowed that he would never marry un
til he had paid his father's debts. He
offered his fiancee her freedom, which
she declined to accept, and then emi
grated to the state. There, after a
long struggle, he succeeded about a
year ago In paying off the last penny,
and since has been having with a view
to marrying the lady of his choice. He
had not corresponded with her for
ye.us, but knew through mutual friends
that she was still living. A few days
ago he sent her tho following cable
gram: "All debts pain; I am coming,"
and in leply received the welcome mes
sage: "1 am waiting." He has now
returned to Ireland to make arrange
ments for the marriage.
SUBJECT TO THE DECISION OF THE REPUBLICAN VOTERS OF LACK
AWANNA COUNTY AT THE PRIMARY ELECTION, TUESDAY,
JULY, 8, 1902, FROM 4 TO 7 P. M.
In the list of candidates seeking recognition from tho Republican party on
account of yeoinnn service performed, probably none are more worthy of the
confidence of tho, public than Mr. Owllym Jones, who has been favorably men
tioned for the office of County Commissioner. ,
Gwilym Jones was born In Tredegur, Wales, on January 11th, 18G9. He
was brought to this country while yet an infant by his parents, who settled
on the West Side the same year, and has grown up with tho leading young
residents of the Electric City. Ills father was well known throughout the
valley as T. ab De'wl. The elder Mr. Jones followed the occupation of min
ing, and was a member of the executive boaid of the miners' committee In
the trying times of 1877.
For eighteen years Gwilym Jones worked In and about the mines on tho
West Side, and for two years was employed In the moulding shops. He was
a resident of the Fifteenth ward for twelve years, and has always been
prominent as a party worker, and has a political record that Is unassailable.
Mr. Jones has always been a true friend of the miners and a strong sup
poiter of their cause In every Instance.
Gwilym Jones Is not only fortunate In the enjoyment of a nure record, but
also possesses a pleasing personality. There Is no more delightful man to
meet. Hp has a genuinely fine mind; is frank, friendly, and wins the admira
tion of all acquaintances by his modest and unassuming ways. At all times
his manners aie unaffected and cordial. Popular with all; with malice toward
none; straightforward, energetic and enthusiastic, Gwilym Jones can cer
tainly lay claim to recognition as an Ideal candidate of the best Republi
can blood of the city of Industry.
In seeking the nomination for the office of County Commissioner on the
Republican ticket he does so with the knowledge that he can render efllclent
service to the people in tho conduct of the affaiis of the county, all of which
come under the direct contiol of the Commissioners' office. Some years of
service on the Board of A&sessors for the City of Scranton, has qualified him
especially In the know ledge of assessed valuations of property, not alone with
in the city, but thioughout the country.and in this special branch alone, where
with the County Commissioners' office has a very great deal to do, he can
serve the people well. Fiom childhood he has lived in Scranton, and since
reaching manhood has been loyal In the support of the Republican party
and the principles which hae made it strong in the hearts of the people.

The Proper Outing
Suit for Summer Wear.
If you'll notice the fashion plates this season you will
see a decided changfe in the cut of this popular Negligee
Suit. The most noticeable is the width of the coat should

voted considerable time and thought to these correct sum
mer clothes. We've selected some decidedly novel cloth
patterns and the construction of every suit embodies the
rules laid down by our famous "Atterbury System."
It's the assurance of the best workmanship, both inside
and out. The choosing of a cloth pattern is made easy
here by our large and varied assortment. Some samples
