On The Watch
CHANGES MADE BY COMMITTEE
Councilman Calpin Alleges That
Certain Amendments Offered at a
Piovlous Meeting by A. L. Iiewia
and H. E. Paine Had Been Pre
pared with a View of Obstructing
tho Now Electric Light Company.
Mr. Paine Denies That He Is a
Sneak Amendments Adopted.
The light and water committee of
the common council met last night nnd
very thoroughly nmended tho ordin
ance awarding a franchise to the
Lacltawannu Light, Heal and Power
company. Some little sensation was
created by Councilman P. F. C'ulpln,
who declared that ho felt convinced
that certain amendments considered at
a. previous mooting of tho committee
and presented last night In n modified
form had been prepared not by any
member of the committee, but by sotno
person very solicitous for the best In
terests of tho Kcrunton Electric Light
and Heat Company.
The committee had mot previously on
Monday. Hept. 22, and Informally dis
cussed two sets of amendments pre
sented by Councilman A. L. Lewis and
II. K. Paine. These two sots of
nmondments were almost pieclsoly
similar, but action on them wan de
ferred until last night.
At last night's mooting A. L. Lewis
submitted his set of amendments with
n number of the features objected to at
the previous meeting omitted. Mr.
Paine had only two amendments to of
fer. Mr. Calpin look occasion to make
his statement before Clerk Mortis had
read any of the amendments.
"I want to say," said he, "that there
were several somethings In the amend
ments presented at our last meeting,
which looked very much as If the In
terests of the company now having a
monopoly of the electric business In
tills city were being carefully looked
after. To be frank It looked ns If they
had been put in for the sole purpose of
obstructing this ordinance."
Mr. Paine Immediately proceeded to
defend his amendments and dcrlared
emphatically that lie had scon no rep
resentative of the old company, nnd
that he defied any man to prove that
TO PHOTECT OLD COMPANY.
"I repeat, nevertheless," replied Mr.
Palpln, "that some of those amend
ments were carefully drawn to piotect
the interests of the old company and
you, yourself, admitted that some of
them were not proper. They were what
is known in legitimate parlance as
'sneaks,' and If they are to be offered
tonight I'll vote against them."
"I want you to understand," said Mr.
Paine warmly, "that I'm no sneak and
that what you say as applied to my
amendments is not true."
A. L. Lewis made no reply to Mr.
Calpin and did not attempt to defend
his amendments, all of which wore
adopted as presented In their revised
form. The more important ones were
Providing for a trust company bond of
S2.",0!i0 instead of J10.UOO ns a guarantee of
compliance with tho terms of thu fran
chise. Providing that tho duration of tho fran
chise shall not bo for a longer peilor than
fifty yea is.
Piovlding that the sr.inlee shall erect
a plant within tho city limits with a ca
pacity of not less than ",.'00 hoi so power,
tho Kimc to bo in complete operation
within tin eo years from tho date of the

or its passage over his veto.
Providing that the company shall fur
nMi frco light and power to all city
buildings. (In the typewritten copy tho
words "and all school buildings" ap
pears but this had boon stricken off since
the llrst meeting of the committee).
Providing for tho reservation of one
duct in each conduit and of a cross arm
on club pole for whes for city use,
Piovlding that all poles shall bo of
sound cedar or chestnut and that thoy
shall bo placed no closer than ninety feet
nor farther apart than 110 foot. O'hls
amendment oilsinally Included a cI.iush
reading, "and not within a distance of
sixty foot of the poles of any other com
pany," but this had been cut out in the
Providing for Insulated guard wires

Objection was ralbtd to this last
amendment by Mr. C'alpln on the
ground that It would bo possible for
the now company to be harassed by

An amendment offered by Mr. Calpin
and adopted provides for n tax of 2

ceipts after 1903.
An amendment offered by Mr. P.ilne
ami adopted provides that tho com
pany shall not be permitted under its

HELD FOR MURDER
OP JAMES WINSTON
Hearing Last Evening in the Case of
the Men Brought Back from
The hearing In tho case of Harry
Slmroth, Hurry Zhuhnh, Thomas Prls
tosh, Stephen Frcnchko and Peter Kio
tuluskl, the men charged with tho mur
der ot James Winston, was held yes
terday afternoon lu the ofllco ot Alder
man Davis, in West Scranton.
All of the prisoners, except Kiomln
skl, were positively Identllled, and tho
alderman considered the evidence suf
ficient to hold him, with the others,
without ball for their appearance at
Attorneys II. L. Taylor, John J, Mur
phy nnd George Horn appeared for tho
defendants, and Dlstilct Attorney W.
II. Lewis, Joseph O'lbion and rtobert
J, Murray for the commonwealth and
Delaware and. Hudson company. S. J.
Lewis, son-in-law of the murdered
man; Mrs. Louise Doyle, William Doyle
and David Lewis were the witnesses
S. J. Lewis positively Identllled Slm
roth, and Doyle identified Pristosh ns
the man who ran away after the at
tack on Winston was made. Zlmbah
and Frcnchko were Identllled ns the
men who occupied tho house where the
men came from and made the attack.
Three of the men Identllled had pur
chased return tickets from Moscow, but
the other two only bought tickets one
way. Coroner Sultry testified to the ex
tent of Winston's Injuries and tho
cause of his death. Counsel for Kro
mlnskl asked for his discharge, on the
failure of the witnesses to Identify him,
but tho fact that he had purchased
transportation one way and left with
the others was deemed sufficient, by the
alderman to hold him with the others.
THE NUTRITIVE VALUE OF AL
COHOL AND ORDINARY FOODS.
In a recent Issue of tho New York
Sunday Journal, there apprared an In
teresting aitlcle, under the above cap
tion, by thai celebrated scientist, Prof.
W. O. Atwater. whose exhaustive le
sedrch in behalf of the government
into the food value of alcohol, has
startled tho world. In It Prof. Atwater
makes the following .statements:
"A largo amount of experimental in
quiry has been devoted to the subject
of alcohol and its nutritive food value
during the last few years In the I'nl
trd States and ICurope. The final con
clusion is that while alcohol cannot
build up the bodily machine and repair
it as It Is worn out, It can and does
serve as fuel for the body. Taken in
excess, however, its well-known action
upon the nervous system is such as to
counteract Its nutritive effect. Tho
terrible- results of long continued ex
cess nre too well known to requite
"Many earnest people have opposed
tho doctrine that alcohol has a nutrit
ive value. In so doing they have laid
especial stress upon a view held by
some physiologists and based upon cer
tain experimental Inquiries. This view
is to the effect that alcohol docs not
protect protein from consumption. The
protein or nitrogenous mateilal, which
in, ikes up tho basis of the blood, mus
cle nnd bone and other parts of tho
body structure, contains nitrogen nnd
is made from the nitrogoneous parts
of the food, like the lean of meat, the
casein of milk, tho white of egg and
the gluten of wheat.
"Alcohol, like sugar, starch and fat,
contains no nitrogen, nnd hence, like
them, It cannot build tissue. Like
them it contains a large amount of
latent or potential energy which be
comes active when It Is burned In tho
body. These fuel ingredients of the
food, when they aie burned oxidized
in the body biipply It with heat and
muscular power, niH they al?o protect
other material, Including body tissue
from being burned. The most Import
ant material to bo piotected Is the pro
tein of the body. There Is no question
that htignrt starch and fat protect the
fat of the b'ody from consumption and
the protein also. It Is believed by
practically all the experimenters who
speak with authority that alcohol pro
tects body fat from consumption, but
home have questioned Its power to pro
These conclusions hnve been arrived
at after experiments with Individuals
who have consented to practical Im
prisonment, lu herenictlcnlly scaled
cabinets for as long ns 30 days, having
food, drink and air measured by tho
most delicate recording devices.
After all that has been suld ou this
subject pro and con, It bcciiis desirable
to emphasize a point that has not boon
previously dwelt upon: I, e., the purity
of tho stimulants used.
There can be no doubt of the bene
fit tu bo derived by nny adult person,
who uses, In moderation, such pure
liquor as Is offeied by Green Valley

Itev. II. A. Kunklc, a graduate of Mt.

was small last evening, there is, never
theless, it large field for tho new pastor
to work In. The service began at S
o'clock, with singing, followed by the
esper service, in charge of Rev. A. L.
Itamer, Ph.D., pastor of St. Mark's
Lutheran church, of West Scranton.
A quartette, 'composed of Mrs. Lld
shnni, Mrs. Miller, Charles and F. Ter
wllllger, sang "Jesus, Lover of My
Soul," and later in the service Mlsi
Hesslo Schlve, of Tilnlty .Lutheran
church, sang a solo.
Rev. J. O. Schlenker, of Ilazleton, de
livered the charge to the congregation,
taking his text from Paul's first ipistle
to the Corinthians, sixteenth chapter
and the tenth verse. In closing, he tald:
"He faithful In your attendance, sus
tain III in in his enteipilscs, and don't
do anything without his knowledge or
approval. Pray for him. and you will
have no fault to find. Don't critklKe
him, but show him holy life as tho re
sult of ids work, and God will reward
The chmge to the pastor was deliv
ered by Uov. K. F. Hitler, pastor of
Holy Trinity Lutheran church.
After another selection by the quar
tette, the Installation service was con
ducted by Itev. Schlenker. assisted by
Kev. Itamer and Uov. KItter. Con
gratulations were then extended to thc
now ly Installed pastor.
OAK OR SQUASH?
Scranton Business College.
When piospectlvo students ask if
they can't take short courses, wo feel
like saying what tho president of
Oberllu college said to a young man
who asked a similar question. His re
ply was: "Well, that depends upon
What you want to make of yourself.
When Uod wants an oak, Ho takes 100
years; when He wants a squash, He
takes six months." Wc can do much
for you In a short time, but wo can do
more for you If you will complete a
course. Wo could arrange n course
that any ordinary Individual could
complete In about thiee mouths, but
what would It amount to? There have
beep schools which offered to trans
form any ordinary person into a book
keeper or stenographer In from L' to u
months. Happily such schools (?) are

Mr. Gunster's thirty points give him
a good start for the special honor prize
offered to the contestant scoring tho
largest number of points by Satin day
evening, October 11, and also puts him
up another place among the leadeis.
He now occupies seventh place, having
passed Albeit Frecdinan, of Bellevue,
and leading that young man by two
points. This was the only change In
Yesterday was the last day in which
new entries were allowed, but none
were received, Lewis nates being tho
last to enter, just two weeks ago. In
all an even hundred entered the con
test, but forty-nine of these are now-
debarred from entering points and fiom
now on the contest will be confined to
the fifty-one that have scored.
Changes of a Month.
It Is interesting to note the number
of changes that took place among the
contestants during the month of Sep
tember. Only eight out of the lending
thirty-three retain the positions they
had at the beginning of the month, ten
others are occupying advanced places,
while? tho remaining fifteen huvu been
obliged to drop back.
Of the eight that remain unchanged
four occupy the first four places. Oscar
II. Kipp. of Elmhurst, occupied third
place for ono day early lu the mouth,
but was obliged to drop back the fol
low Ingduy. Tho four others who still
hold their places are Herbert Thomp
son, of Carbondale, sixth: Fred K.
tiunster, of Green Uldge, eighth; Miss
Kdna Coleman, of Scranton, twenty
fifth, and Miss Mary Yeager, of Green
Itldge, twenty-ninth. From September
17 to :!9 Mr. Thompson was lu fifth
Of tho ten advances made, tho most
Important were by two contestants high
up lu the table. William Sherwood, of
Harford, went from seventh to fifth
place, mid J. A. H.ivenstrlto, of Mos
cow, from thirteenth to ninth. These
were more Important than some who
passed si larger number of contestants,
becuuso it required so many points to
accomplish the change. Of the eight
others there are four who were not In
tho table at the beginning of tho mouth:
Don C. Capwell, of Scranton, who ad
vanced seventeen places unci Is now

with many rare and lovely tints. Tho
electric lights the mirrors on every

of tho latest conceits In Fall Headwcar,
taking all together It wns u sight that
will live long after the opening days
are over. Paris fashions, the models so
universally adopted by the most criti

these Ideas augmented by the excellent
taste and skill of tholr own milliners
make a collection never excelled and
hard to equal oven In our very largest
cities. The trimming this season are
very unique and different from those
used other seasons. This perhaps is
one of the reasons why this millinery
opening is ono ot unusual Interest.
Every taste nnd desire can bo gratified

those who have not witnessed this dis

fall to do so today and tomorrow. In
