close anil exciting game of foot ball at
Athletic park yesterday afternoon, which
resulted in a victory for the Sopho

the Seniors. Ilea caught the leather,
but was downed before he could gain.
The Seniors then, by hard line plunges,
advanced the ball to the ti-yard line,
where they lost It on a fumble.
Hamilton kicked out of danger, and
Itea started for a touchdown, but Rey

caught the ball and made a good gain
before being tackled. Reynolds' signal

ton failed to kick the goal.
The Seniors then took a decided brace
and by the great work of Tobey they
stopped the Sophomores' hard rushes.

also did good work, toppling over the
Seniors' big: backs with ease. The

nothing against the Seniors' line, Ham

for the sessions of the commission,
which begin tomorrow In the Superior
court room of the county court house.
Allotments of space for the counsel,
parties In Interest, newspaper corre
spondents and witnesses will be one of
his chief concerns. On account of the
limited dimensions of the court room it
Is possible that admission will be regu
lated by tickets.
The sessions of the commission will
take place each day from 10 to IL',30 and
from-U.HO to 4.30. It Is possible that the
afternoon session will be shortened by
half nn hour to permit of the commis
sioners having more time for confer
ences. It has been arranged that all
the commissioners shall lunch together
In a private room at the Jermyn, that
they may have a dally conference dur
ing the noon recess.
Mitchell Comes Today.
President John Mitchell, 'of the United
Mine Workers, with District Presidents
John Fahy and Thomas Duffy and the
headquarters force engaged In the work
of preparing written evidence for tho
commission, will come here from Wilkes
Carre this evening, and take up quar
ters at the St. Charles. Six rooms and
a parlor have been engaged for them.
No less than twenty lawyers will at
tend the hearings as representatives- of
the various parties to the controversy.
On the operators' side there will be
Francis I. Gowan, of Philadelphia, gen
eral counsel for the Lehigh Valley
Coal company; A. If. HeCllntock, of
Wilkes-Rarre, for the Lehigh and
WIlkes-Barre Coal company; S. P.
Wolverton, of Sunbury, for the Phila
delphia and Reading Coal and Iron
company; II. A. Fuller, of Wilkes
Kurre, for the independent operators;
General Counsel David AVilcox, of New
York, and James II. Torrey, of Scran
ton, for the Delaware and Hudson
company; Wayne McVeagh, of Phila
delphia, and Major Kverett Warren, of
Scrnnton, for the Kiie company; Gen
eral Counsel AV. AV. Ross, of New

It Is not known whether or not Pres
ident George V. liner, of the Reading,
will attend tho hearings. It is prob
able, though, that he will run In oc
casionally to look on. The other coal
road presidents, it Is quite certain, will
not attend, unless summoned.
Commissioner AVrlght said last night
that, as far as he knew, the commis
sion will at once enter upon the taking
of testimony from tho miners' side.
The pleas of all the parties are In tho
hands of the commissioners and some
brief discission us to tho method of
proceeding ought to be the only thing
to delay the immediate taking up of
the task of hearing evidence.
How long the commission will be In
session here, or whore, If any place,
It will sit next, no one knows. The
commissioners, It Is understood, are
icndy for a long session. The likeli
hood Is that the Scrnnton session will
not end for at least three weeks.

Of a New Catarrh Cute,
A largo and constantly Increasing
majority of tho American people are
catarrh sufferers. This Is not entirely
tho result of our changeable climate,
but because modern Investigation has
clearly proven that many diseases,
known by other nnmes, are really ca
tarrh. Formerly the name catarrh was
applied almost exclusively to the com
mon nasal catarrh, but tho throat,
stomach, liver, bladder, kidneys nnd
Intestines are subject to' catarrhal dis
eases as well as the nasal passages.
In fact, wherever there Is mucous
membrane there is n feeding ground for
Tho usual remedies, Inhntcrs, sprays,
douches or powders havo been practic
ally failures as far ns anything more
than temporary relief wns concerned,
because they simply dry up tho mucous
secretions, without having the remotest
effect upon the blood nnd liver, which
nro tho real sources of catnrrhal dis
eases. It has been known for some years
that the radical cure oC catarrh could
never come from local applications, but
from an Internal remedy, noting on the.
blood and expelling the catarrhal poison
from the system.
A now Internal preparation which has
been on tho nmrket only a short time,
has met with remarkable success as a
genuine radical cure for catarrh.
It may be found in any drug store,
sold under the name of Stuart's Catarrh
Tablets, large pleasant tasting lozenges,
composed principally of antiseptic In
gredients, Blood-root, Red Gum and
similar catarrh specifics.
Dr. Alnslee in speaking of the new
catarrh cure says: "I have tried tho
new catarrh remedy, Stuart's Catarrh
Tablets, upon thirty or forty patients
with remarkable satisfactory results.
They clear the head and throat more
effectually and lastingly than any
douche or Inhaler thut 0 have ever
seen and although they are what Is
called a patent medicine and sold by
druggists, I do not hesitate to recom
mend them as I know them to be free
from cocaine nnd opiates, and that
even a child muy use them with entire
Any sufferer from nasal catarrh,
throat or bronchial trouble, catarrh of
the stomach, liver or bladder will find
Stuart's Catarrh Tablets remarkably
effective, pleasant and convenient, and
your druggist win ten you uiey are
absolutely free from any Injurious drug.
