A good exhibition of foot ball was
given yesterday afternoon at Athletic
park, before a very enthusiastic crowd,
between elevens representing the Scran
ton High School and St. Thomas Col
lege. High School won the toss and chose
the southern goal. Purcell kicked off
for St. Thomas and Dawson, catching
the ball, made a ten-yard gain before
Short plunges through the line by
Qulnn and Allen brought the ball to the
center of the field, when High School
lost the ball on a fumble. St. Thomas,
quickly lining up, made ten yards by
the guardsback formation, and the
outlook seemed pretty dark for High
School, when St. Thomas fumbled the
ball. Levi getting the ball made five
yards before being tackled.
Pretty llne-bucklng by Stone and ten
yards for off-side play, It looked as If
High School would score, but Murphy
made a fine flying tackle at Alleii,
spoiling a pretty run. and in the next
play High School fumbled. O'Toole got
the ball, but was tackled befote he
could gain a yard.
St. Thomas no sooner got the hall
berore they lost It again, and then
Qulnn's signal being given, they went
through St. Thomas' line for twenty
yards. By Allen's great line plunges
and Levi's tackling. High School ad
vanced the ball Into St. Thomas' terri
tory. St. Thomas took a brace nnd held the
High School for downs. Dougher then
took the ball for St. Thomas and by
good line-bucking made ten yards
through High School's left tackle, and
the first halt ended with the ball In St.
Allen kicked off for High School In
the second half, but a St. Thomas man
fumbled the ball and Levi fell on it.
St. Thomas held High, School, forcing
Allen to kick. Purcell got the ball and
advanced it fifteen yards. Then by hard
line bucking they got within five yauls
ot High School's coal, when thr hull
High School Is now held for downs,
and St. Thomas, more determined than
ever, rushed the ball down the field
toward the goal, but High School, sum
moning all their strength, held their op
ponents and forced them to kick.
Cower caught the ball, but dropped it.
Quicker than a wink Murphy dropped
on u witmn three yards of High
School's goal, and when it seemed cer
tain that the next plunge would entry
it over the goal lino, the timekeeper's
called time, and the game ended with
neither side scoring. The line-up:

Captain Drake, of General Gobln's

Otililn from Wllkes-Rarre last night.
Tile olllclals of the large coal com
panies reported yesterday that tlio
strike situation so far as a resumption
of work was concerned was much
brighter. The reports received by them
Indicated that lump men had returned
to work than on any day during the
past week. The mine winkers had no
reports of men quitting work to offset
General Manager Hryden, of the On
tario and Western company's coal de
partment, said that the number of new
men who put In an appearance yester
day encouraged hiin to believe that one
or two nddltlonal collieries might be
started within the course of a week.
The daily output of the three washerles
nnd thiee collieries operated by tills
company Is now about n.300 tons, an In
ciease ot nno tons since last Saturday.
District Superintendent Tobey. of the
Delaware, Lackawanna and Western
company's coal department, said yes
terday that the number of additional
men who were returning to work is
gt eater than at any time since the
strike began. He denied tho statement
that the company intended concentrat
ing Its men at a few of the collieries
and working these to their full capa
city rather than operating a number
at much less than their usual capacity.
GIVE THEM THE PICK.
"We intend to do no such thing," said
he. "The miners who are coming back
to work are being given their pick of
the chambers and If the good chambers
In one mine aie all taken we let them
take their pick of those in other mines.
Just as soon as a sufficient number of
men to warrant the operation of an
additional colliery present themselves,
an additional colliery will be operated."
Reports of an Increased number of
men at work weic also recleved from
the Delaware and Hudson company,
the Temple Iron company, the Hillside
Coal and Iron company and the Penn
sylvania Coal company.
Secretary Dcmpsey, of Dlstilct Xo.
1, who is in charge of the local head
quarters said yesterday afternoon that
there hud been no desertions to the
strikers' side from the men at work
as far as ho knew.
The local operators seen yesterday
seemed to be u little bit uncertain as
to the effect which the presence of ad
ditional troops In this region will have
on the general situation though they
were rather Inclined to the belief that
It will clear things up very much and
that many more men will accept the
protection offered and return to work.
The superintendent of one of the
large coal companies in discussing tills
matter yesterday said:
"I think that theie will lie a very
considerable Inllux of men to the mines
when these extra troops reach here
providing the soldiers are properly dis
tributed. As long as they're kept In
their iMinps and only called out when
an actual breach of the peace occurs
just so long will their presence have
very little effect.

WHERE THE DANGER LIES.
"We don't want men to guard our
breakers because our experience In this
strike so far has proven that there Is
nothing tn fear from mobs assailing
the men at work. It Is the fear of as
sault on the way to and from work
that Is keeping so many men away
from the mines and al-o the fear that
their families might be molested while
they were away fioni home. A whole
regiment of soldiers camping nlongside
a breaker Isn't going to prevent all at
tacks on the men when they're coming
to and quitting work.
"If the soldiers are detailed to do
patrol duty In and about the mines
and are stationed at Intervals along
Hie streets which the men must pass
through on their way to their work
1 think that the men who desire to
return to work would feel encouraged
to do so. It would give them a sense
ot secuilty as to their own safety as
well as that of their families."
The announcement that President
Mitchell had rejected President Itoose
velt's offer to nppnlm u commission to
Investigate strike conditions providing
tlio men returned to work, was receiv
ed here with no surprise by either
