A Point to Insist On.
There are endless numbers of travel
ing people who go regularly from New
York to Chicago and vice versa several
times a month, who have never gone
over any other road but the Lake
Sllore & Michigan Southern, because
this road Is good enough for them. It's
good enough for anybody, tho fastest,
safest, most convenient and most com
fortable road in America. Once you
travel over the Lake Shore and you will
not want to experiment with any other
road. People who know the comforts
and discomforts of traveling, and what
they have u light to expect, always
Insist on their tickets reading by way
of the Lake Shore, So should you.

In the Case of John Jenkins vs.
Rushhrook Coal Company.
A rule calling on the pluintlff, John
Jenkins, to show cause why a re-argument
should not be held In the case of
Jenkins vs. The Rushbrook Coal coin
pnny was granted by Judge Edwards
The rule is made returnable Septem

the argument on It were made Monday.
Attorneys Price, of this city, and Rlck
etts, of Wllkes-Barre, appeared for the
defendant company, and Attorney
Hannah for Mr. Jenkins.
The rule cannot be decided except in
open court, on account of the fact that
to keep the record accurate the decision
of tho court must be handed down In
open court. There will be no court sit

The rule satisfies the defendant com

the court awarded him. In case the

Mrs. McHnle Says It's All Due to
the Fact That Her Husband

Mrs. Annie Mellale, of Prlceburg,

where she was held In ball to answer

also fined for alleged violation of a
borough ordinance against drunken
ness cud profane talk, and In default
of the fine and ball was committed to
Mrs. McIIule says that her husband
is working at the Raymond washery of
the New York, Ontario and Western
company, and because of that she has
suffered all manner of Indignities nt
the hands of her neighbors, who, when
eveiy form of oppression known to
them had been exhausted, turned their
nttpntion to putting her in Jail. The
charges enumerated above were for the
P'irposo of bringing this about.
V'hen General Manager Bryden, of
the company, heard of the case, he re
quested the company's attorneys, J. E.
Uurr and Joseph O'Brien, to hnve her
hi ought before one of the judges,
where he became security for her ap
pearance nt court. An appeal was also
taken from the summary conviction be
fore the magistrate, in the matter of
iolation of the borough ordinance.
Mis. McHale is of the opinion that It
Is not safe for her to live longer in
Prlceburg, nnd will move to Archbald,
near which her husband works.
PARADE MAY BE ABANDONED.
Father Mathew Men Affected by the
There is a strong possibility of the
annual parade of the Father Muthew
men, scheduled for October 10, In West
Scranton, being abandoned, on account
of the strike.
A large percentage of the member
ship are mine workers, and If they
were 10 travel any distance much ex
pense would be incurred, which they
cannot afford nt this time.
A committee has been named to wait
or. Iie. I'. J. MeManus, president of
the Diocesan union, to request that ho
call a special meeting of the board of
government to consider the advisabil
ity of calling the parade off.
Similar action was taken during the
strike of 1000, when the parade was
scheduled for llazloton. If the parade
Is abandoned, it Is probable that .the
local societies in the union will hold
celebrcticns In their own halls.

ANOTHER BILL OP THE
LONG AGO APPEARS
It Is a Claim for Four Hundred
Dollars and Is Made by Con
stable J. C. Moran.
Among the bntch of bills which were
received yesterday by Controller P. W.
Costollo, from the auditing committee
which met Monday night, was the
claim for some $400 by Constable John
The committee refused to give the bill
nny consideration, as its members as
sert that the claim is now a matter of
ancient history, nnd was settled long
since. It was contracted several years
ago, when E. J. Robinson was city con
troller. A number of constables' bills
were then held up by the lntter, who
regarded them as exorbitant.
A compromise was finally arrived at
by which the controller signed war
rants for amounts which he thought
the services rendered were worth, and
received from the constables receipts In
full. Moran's bill was for about $1,200,
for serving papers in the Twelfth ward.
His receipt wns received with those
of the others, but all these important
bits of papers have disappeared, as was
announced some time ago, when Con
stable Ryan brought action against the
city to recover the balance he claimed
was due him. Attorney McGlnley, who
was then city solicitor, had been In
vestigating the matter, the vouchers
had been removed from the files, and
the whereabouts of the receipts was
and remains a mystery.
Ryan's claim was Anally allowed, the
auditing committee sanctioning It and
the controller signing the warrant.
Chairman D. W. Vaughan of the audit
ing committee yesterday declared that
Moran's bill would not, under any cir
cumstances, be allowed.
"There was some excuse for paying
Ryan's bills," lie said, yesterday. "The
latter claimed he had signed his re
ceipt In full, under protest, but this
argument cannot be advanced In the
Moran case. The committee has simply
refused to consider the bill."

Thcro wns a red hot battle for dele
gates at the Democratic primaries In
the Fourth legislative district yester
day afternoon. The light was, of
course, between the Hon. P. 13. Tim
lin and T. E. Hendricks, and few pre
liminary fights have been more bitter.
Jermyn, the homo of both candidates,
was the storm center, nnd there tho
friends of the candidates fought with
Last night, Timlin claimed a total of
fifty out of sixty-five delegates, and
said he would be a certainty nt the
Olyphnnt convention Thursdny. Hen
dricks made almost similar claims. He
says that Carbondale city and town
ship and Fell township Is, to n largo
extent, solid for him, and that in the
other parts of the district he will also
make a big showing.
In Jermyn borough, Hendricks got
the delegates In tho First ward and
Timlin In tho Second and Third.
Thursday's convention promises to be
P. F. Calpln was in consultation with
n number of the party leaders last
night about the question of culling a
convention to nominate a candidate for
state senntor. Four years ago the sena
torial campaign wns conducted by the
county committee and in consequence
no senatorial commitee was appointed.
Colonel F. J. Fltzslmmons, the county
chairman of that year, is all there Is In
the way of a committee nnd within a
day or so he will Issue a call for him
to meet with himself nnd select a day,
time and place for the selection of a
senatorial candidate. It is probable
that the convention will be held on the
day the county convention is held.
Such an nrrangement will save time
The only two candidates seeking the
nomination are Common Councilman
P. F. Calpln, of the Sixth ward, and
Select Councilman J. J. Costello, of tho
Democratic County Convention.
At a meeting of the Democratic
county committee, held last night In
the St. Charles hotel, it was decided to
hold the county primaries on Satur
day, September 13, and the convention
in Music hall at 10 o'clock Tuesday,
Last night's meeting was called to
order by County Chairman T. P.
Hoban, who thanked the committeemen
for their gallant fight ot last year
and the substantial victory they had
In closing, he suggested that Sep
tember 9 or 16 would make suitable
days for a convention, and Sheriff
Schadt made a motion fixing these
days for tho primaries nnd convention.
It wus passed without opposition. Later
It was decided to have the convention
In Music hall, if it can be secured for
Hammes' Committee Tonight.
Tho Democratic standing committee
of the second legislative district will
hold a meeting tonight, at which it will
select a time and place for holding pri
maries and a convention to nominate a
candidate for the state legislature.
J. F. Hammes is chairman of tho
committee and will call it to order to
night in the St. Charles hotel at 7.30
o'clock. Common Councilman Fred
Phillips, of tho Eleventh ward, Is a
candidate for the nomination, nnd Sir.
Hammes is also willing to accept the
nomination, since organized labor has
decided not to put a. ticket in the Held
this fall. There are ono or two dark
horses that will probably be In tho
field before convention day rolls
