The latest - - o befall men
who have continued to work during the
strike, Is their being expelled from a
lodge on the charge of being "scabs."
This happened to Joseph Setelyn and
John Lowandowskl, of Maple street,
who are employed at the Bellevue col
liery. This fact was brought out at a hear
ing before Alderman Millar yesterday
afternoon, when Louis Proznesky and
John Zoro?a were arrested. The pros
ecutors have remained at work since
the strike was Inaugurated, and alleged
that the defendants called them
"scabs," threatened to kill them and
had them expelled frJm a lodge to
which all belonged, because they re
turned to work.
Magistrate Millar fined each of them
$10 and costs, and In default sent them
to the county jail for thirty days. Proz
nesky was also held In $1,000 ball for
making threats and to keep the peace.
Zorosa was held in $500 bail.

employ of the Ontario and "Western
Railroad company, and while return
ing home from work a week ago last
evening he was set upon by these wo
men and assaulted.
They had their anrons filled with
stones and struck him with such force
that he was laid up for a week. They
also called him "A dirty working
scab." Attorney John J. Murphy ap
peared for the defendants, and Attor
neys Joseph O'Brien and J. E. Burr for
the nrospcutor.
The women were each fined S10 and
costs, and in default committed to jail
for thirty days for calling Button u
scab. Each wore held in $500 bail to
appear at court In answer to tho charge
of aggravated assault and battery.
Bail was given and an appeal taken
from the summary conviction.

Frederick Wamke made the an
nouncement yesterday that he will
start his washcry, at Duryea, next
Monday, if it takes three hundred
armed men to do It.
President NIcholls yesterday made
tho following reply to the letter of
President Crawford, of the People's
Coal comnany:
Editor of Tho Tilbune- sir: In yesterday's Issue I noticed
a number of acknowledgments by Mr. J.
L. Ciawford of events a3 ho claims to
know them. Regarding tho question of
"bluffing" will say that when iiuestloned
regarding tho statement that the Oxlord
would bo started I bald I did not believe
It could bo done; that our membeia would
not go there to work, until tho btilko
was ended, "You think It's only a bluff,"
lemarkcd the teportcr. I ta'.d "Guess so."
Now my opinion still Is, from tho knowl
edge of the Oxford miners 1 possess, that
if the Oxford Is operated bcfoio a settle
ment Is effected, It will havo to be dono
by new hands entirely. But this Is not
why I tako notlca or exceptions to Mr.
Crawfoid's "acknowledgements," but be
cause he tays "that Mr. Nichols has suc
ceeded in enforcing thioo ot my men to
break their contracts, Flrat wa3' a lire
man who was the only hiipport of a wid
owed mother. Mr. Nichols, or those ho
bent to her, told her that tho son would
bo killed if he continued to work," I
want to say emphatically that I am not
tho kind of a man Mr. Crawford pictures
mo to ho; that I Know of no casea whero
I have forced hlu men to In oak their con
tracts; that I do not know anything of
tho widow and her liroiian son mentioned,
and am not guilty of threatening his mur
der, as told by .Mr. Ciawtord. If Mr.
Crawford know theso things to bo true
ho should havo me ai tested for threaten
ing murder, and duly punished. 1 cnat
Icngo him to do so now. In the event or
any personal lo.s3 through the effect of
Mr, Ciawford's libel I blind expect him
to acknowlego his mistake and make
proper reparation.
In the kind of a struggle we are all en
gaged In I am willing to overlook state
meutH irmcia in tho moment of heated
pabslon, but cannot see the necessity of
quietly submitting to a eatefully written
letter charging mo with threatening mur
der. I havo never said anything about
Mr, Crawford and hopa he will carefully
consider tho Injustice ho has done me, and
acknowlcgo the hame, If I am a labor
"agitator," I try to be, and expect to be,
considered "a man for a' that,"

Bowlers Meet Tonight to Arrange for
Next Season Elghtcon Club
Circuit Possible.
A meeting for the purpose of organi
sation will be held at S.30 o'clock to
monow night at the Elks' Cafe, by
the Scranton City Bowling league, the
members of which are already begin
ning to get anxious about tho coming
season's rolling, The tcaui3 which are
to enter the league this year will be
tho Arllngtons and Maennerchors, from
South Scranton, the Hampe and
"Bobby's" team from the Hampe al
leys, the Llederkranz and Elks', from
the latter's alleys, two teams repre
senting tho Backus alleys, and two
from North Scranton. It Is also ex
pected to have present at the meeting
lepresentatlves from the West Scran
ton alleys, Scranton Bicycle club, Elec
tric City Wheelmen, and Green Ridge
If It Is decided at this meeting to
have teams from the various wheel
men's clubs in the league, a big circuit
of fourteen or eighteen clubs will be
decided upon. There is a strong possi
bility, however, that the wheelmen will
again have an exclusive bicycle club
league, which will include the West
End Wheelmen, of WIlkes-Barre. Even
In this event, however, the league will
be composed of more teams than ever
before. This will bo the cause of more
spirited competition than has marked
the local tournaments in tho past, and
a long and Interesting session is being
eagerly anticipated by local bowling
Most of the city alleys have been
running all summer, for the first time
in years, and consequently the formal
opening of the season will find all the
bowlers in the pink of condition, and
excellent bowling can be anticipated
from tho start of the game, until the
dog days again arrive.
The Arllngtons are already beginning
to feel strong, and havo issued a chal
lenge to all organized teams of the
city, tho match o be bowled for re
freshments which the losing rollers
will stand for. Philip Roll and Wil
liam Meister, who ha-e already chal
lenged Billy Hopkins and Charle3
Moore have repeated their challenge.
The Maennerchor team has organized,
and is having weekly team practice.
While most of the members are some
what new at the game they have been
Injecting an enthusiasm into their
work, which is bound to havo a good
effect. There is also some talk of a
printers' team. With Frank Gold or
Cyrus Evans as captain, a crack quin
tette of bowlers could be found among
the typos, who would be able to roll
with the best of them.
Tho Hampe teams are looked upon
as the dark horses of the prospective
league. A number of crack bowlers
have been developed there, and It Is
expected that they will make a strong
bid for this year's trophy. One of tho
highest scoics ever rolled In tho city
was recently made on the alleys.
Murphy, who bowled on one of the
City League teams, rolled 277.
At the Bicycle club, there is a like
lihood of tho old Black Diamond team
being reorganized. This collection of
bowlers never set the world of ten pins
on fire, by any startling achievements,
but Us members wore recognized as
tho jolllest crowd of individuals In the
league, and tho Fide features attached
to their exhibitions wero always a
source of general amusement.
At tomorrow night's league meeting
officers will bo elected, and the num
ber of clubs in the league definitely de
cided upon. A committee will also
probably be appointed to draft a sched
ule of games, which will be submitted
at a subsequent meeting.
Children Had a Narrow Escape from
Serious Injury.
One of tho Scranton Railway com
pany's big double-trucked cars, loaded
with children going to the Christ Luth
eran church picnic, at Nay Aug park,
jumped tho track yesterday near the
new Roaring Brook bridge on Plttston
avenue, and tho children had a narrow
escape ftom serious Injury,
Several of them wero thrown from
their seats and a boy named Henry
Getz sustained a severe cut on tho
chin, his wrist was sprained and his
ankle bruised. He was taken to tho
office of Dr. L, B. AVoodcock, who
dressed his Injuries.
Another accident in the party oc
curred later in the day at Nay Aug
park, when a boy named Glazcr fell
from a swing and fractured his arm.
W, H. Piorce la Rapidly Recovering
from His Injuries.
W, II. Pleice, of Jefferson avenue,
who was thrown from his carrluge and
seriously injured, July i, Is now well
on tho road to recovery, and expects to
be able to leave his home and resume
business In the coiuse of u few weeks.
His recovery dates from an operation
performed several days after his acci
dent, Ho had been In a comatose state
for several days, and his physicians
believed a bone wa3 pressing on his
brain. He regained consciousness a few
days after the operation and since then
has been steadily recovering.

Councilman Beliovcs That Strikes
Are Not Altogether Blamable
for Scranton's Ills.
That all councllmcn are not of the
same mind as those who provoked 'The
Tribune's .editorial on "Peanut Poll
tics" may be gleaned from the senti
ments of which one of their number
delivered himself yesterday:
"It seems to me," said he, "that the
colored pieacher, Andrew Jones is
right when he said that 'Scranton Is
Doomed,' Like all great preachers and
prophets, he has Scripture ,to sustain
his remarks. But whether Scranton is
doomed or not in tho light In which
the Rev. Jones looks at our future, we
must admit that our city is doomed
to a great extent. The reasons that I
havo to think this is that our city is
growing more cranky and kickey every
year. Men who grow that way seldom
die a natural death; most of them com
mit suicide or else are shot, hung or
die in the electric chair.
"The quality of a city Is not better
than the quality of the people that
compose it. There Is a possibility for
a city or country to commit suicide,
and it appears to me that our city will
kill herself In the near future, if wo
won't change front and our method of
dealing with her.
"A few years ago our city was In a
prosperous condition; life-and activity
were observable on every hand. Today
it Is like a cemetery; no life, no activ
ity. When noble men of purpose.wealth
and business ability come forward and
offer their service to restore life and
build up our 'doomed city' some sore
head politician or a cranky editor will
misconstrue the real object and shout
'franchise grab" or 'council boodleism,'
or tho like, and the first thing we know
the worthy etfort is buried In the life
less cemetery, and the friends (?) of
the dear people dance with joy.
"The man that has an overload of
jealousy and cranky brains should be.
shunned as we shun a contagious dis
ease. He is the bitter weed that kills
"A few days ago, I read In the Scran
ton Tribune an editorial article under
tho heading 'Peanut Politics.' I was
surprised to IcaVn that tho auditing
committee disapproved of the bill sent
in by the recorder for detective work
done the time of the street car strike,
and the bill for detective work in con
nection with tho 'Colored club.' It
seems to me when the committee dis
approved the action of the authorities,
It opposed and upheld riot, vice and
immorality. The incident puts me in
mind of the small dog barking at the
big one. If the above committee will
study some of our great statesmen, I
can assure them they won't stay in
love with 'Peanut Politics,' any longer,
and verify the prediction of Andrew
Jones. In yesterday's Tribune, July 28,
I noticed that another committee of
council thinks that it knows it all, when
they turn down the plan of the annex
to city hall. I don't claim that our
building Inspector Is infalllble.but com
mon sense should teach people to think
that his taste and knowledge Is far su
perior to tho taste and knowledge of
tho majority of the committee, and
that his plans should be accepted and
approved. Some people think that the
carpentei-3' strike, the street car strike
and the miners' strike are the causes
of our city being in such a condition.
I admit that they arc to a certain ex
tent, but the worst strikers of all nro
the men who strike against good law,
Improvements and. industries. Get a
move on you, gentlemen, don't walk
through the old ruts of the past, but
strive to mako our city a model. Away
with Jealousy, away with crankiness
and 'peanut pollticc "

Thirteenth Regiment Not Likely to
Be Taken from This Region
Shortly after now3 of the outbreak at
Shamokln and tho calling out of the
National Guard had reached the city
last night, Lieutenant Colonel F. W.
Stlllwcll was at tho armory, engaged
In active preparations for calling to
gether tho members of the Thirteenth
regiment In as quick time as possible.
He summoned Major Frank Robllng,
of tho Second battalion, and Lieuten
ant Richard J. Bourke, adjutant of the
Third battalion, of which Major Georgo
Whitney, of Honesdalo, Is commander,
and after Ineffective efforts had been
made to reach Colonel L. A. Wntres by
telephone, Major Robllng suggested
that before any definite action was
taken In calling out tho companies. Ad
jutant General T. J. Stewart, of the
Third brigade, be communicated with,
The latter was reached by long dis
tance telephone, and In answer to Col
onel Still well'si queries, replied:""
"Tho Eighth and Twelfth have been
ordered out. Tho Thirteenth will not
be summoned tonight." Both Major W.
S. Millar and Major W. W. Inglls, ot
this city, 'have, however, been notified
to join General J. P. S. Gobln and his
staff. Major Millar is assistant ad
jutant general of the brigade, and
Major Ingll3 is ordnance officer. An
other Scranton man who must leavo
here is Dr. A. J. Wlllson, of the Lacka
wanna hospital, who is attached to the
hospital corps of tho Twelfth regiment,
of WllliamsDort.
Had the Thirteenth been ordered out
last night, It would not have taken over
two hours at the most to muster tho
men. The three officers at tho armory
were in communication with a number
