THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE-THURSDAY, JUL V '31, 1902.
INDICATES SORANTON IS GROW
Instead of Thero Having Been a
Falling Off In Population since the
Federal Census, as Some Have
Thought, the Estimates Tend to
Show That the City's Inhabitants
Are Now About Six Thousand More
Than a Year Ago Joneses as Usual
Lead the List Numerically.
Utiles') Williams' directory nnd the
ules of ratio nio nil uury, Scranton
(tilling the past year or so has out-
rh ailed the proverbial gtcen buy tree
in Hip matter of growth.
The 1901 directory, according to Di
rectory Manager John J. Campbell,
contained EO.ai'O names and Included
ccryono over 16 years of age. The
directory Just Issued, according to the
same authority, has In It, 60,400 names,
nnd the canvassers were Instructed to
take the names only of those 18 years
of age or over.
"When the directory gave this city and
Dunrnorc credit for 50,320 persons over
36 years of ago, the census bureau cred
ited the city with 103,000 population. At
this rate, with 60,400 of persons over 18
5 cars of age, the city nnd Dunmoro
should have a population of 120,800,
without uddlng anything for the per
sons between 16 and 18, slio are ex
cluded from this year's directory. Mak
ing the subtraction for Dunmore's 12,
000 or so, the city shows a surpris
ingly rapid growth,
The directory canvassers may have
made some errors. Incidentally, It
might bo remarked that The Tribune
knows the directory is in error, at least
In one Instance: One young lady whose
name appears In the book is not yet
IS years of age.
Some other interesting facts are
evolved from an analysis of the new
The Joneses as usual lead all other
families numerically. There are 734 of
them, without counting all the little
Joneses, and as a rule the Joneses make
a pretty good showing In this regard.
Next to Jones comes Williams with 5SI
of his tribe who are old enough to get
into the directory and following Wil
liams, is Davis, with 439, which might
properly be made 632, by adding the
Davies with the "e" family.
NOT SO MANY.
Of the Smiths, Browns and Robin
eons, nhose names have come to be
considered the most common of pat
lonymlcs, Scranton has quite an ordin
ary number, comparatively speaking

Work of Improving the City's Main
Paving operations nrc progressing
briskly on the Providence road, In spite
of the very disagreeable weather which
Superintendent Joseph Phillips, of, the
bureau of engineering, nnd his corps
of assistants arn encountering.
As already announced In The Tri
bune, paving has been stnrted at Court
street, nnd work will bo advanced from
this pojit to Carbon street. Nothing
can be done tlrere until the railroad
companies have removed their piers
from Carbon street. Both companies
have expressed their willingness to do
this, and a single steer) span will take
the place of the present pier-supported
Representatives of the two companies
have had frequent Interviews with Mr.
Phillips, of late, and the plans for the
Improvements are now practically com
pleted. It is expected that considerable
delay will be experienced, however, be
fore the necessary steel can be secured
und brought here.
"However," said Superintendent Phil
lips yesterday, "I would hardly deem
it advisable to start work on Carbon
street just now, oven If It were pos
sible. The upper end of the load is
practically blocked, by the work on
Court street, and It appears to me that
it would be highly impracticable to
undertake any operations on Carbon
street, which would close that thor
oughfare also. It is not likely that any
thing will be done on Carbon street for
some months yet."
R. R. Y. M. C. A. NEW HOME.
How the Various Departments Will
The members of the Railroad Young
Men's Christian association are intent
ly watching the work on their new
home, the foundation for which is near
ly completed. The heavy rains of late
have interferred with the operations
considerably, but yesterday a large
force of men were at work.
The basement will contain two bowl
ing alleys, four bath tubs and four
shower baths, a handbalf court nnd
light gymnasium apparatus. The
ground floor will accommodate the
ofllces, reading room, social rooms, II
braiy and dining rooms, while the class
looms and auditorium will be located
on the second floor".
The third floor will be the dormitory,
where eighteen sleeping rooms will be
located, with accommodations for fifty
men a day. These rooms will be fur
nished with double deck beds, and all
The lunch 'counter will be located at
the westerly end of the building and
the barber shop on the easterly end,
fronting on Lackawanna avenue. It
is expected the building will bo ready
for occupancy about Nov. 1. The old
building will be used as a part of the
new home. The contract for the foun
dation work was given to Conrad
Schroeder, but the building contract has
not yet been awarded. Bids will be
opened at a meeting of the building
committee, which will be held Friday

.New York, July 30. Thero was a fur
ther contraction of dealings In today's
Block matket nnd n decidedly hosltatlng
nnd fluctuating tone during tho day. Pro
fessional tinders were watchful for 11 tuin
In tho tldo of tho mnrknt, and kept prices
fluctuating Irrcgulnrly over n small rango
during the greater part of tho day. Thero
wcro no developments of great impor
tance. , The Bt. Louis and Snn Fiunolseo
securities wcro very buoyant which
caused a rovhnl of rumors that thoy are
to bo taken In under tho Rock Island
plnn. . The seml-ofilclnl Intimations of
tho plan of allotment of tho now securi
ties does not provide for this nbsorptlon.
The movement served, however, to off
set to some extent tiro dcpicsslng effect
upon the stock market which has been
caused by the discussion of tho ropoits
of tho Rock Island plan. Tho rise In Chi
cago nnd Eastern Illinois nnd In Chi
cago nnd Alton and tho firmness of Il
linois Central seemed to ho related. Tho
abrupt rlsa In New Yoik Air Brnko Is

showed n tendency to encroach upon In
creases In gross earnings and In some
cases to piactlcally wipe out ttio gain
In gross. The tendency was perceptible
In Wabash, In Union Pacific nnd St. Paul.
But this inlluenco was dissipated in the
reviving effect of the Into rnllv In which
nil of those stocks, especially St. Paul,
