THKKK TOWNS AUK HAITI.
! Hnllstcud, Gouldsboro and" Clark's
Summit Delighted nt "Humps"
Hallstead, Gouldsboro and Clark's
Summit, three towns whose existence
Is threatened by the closing down of
their Lackawanna yards, are rejoic
ing over the news that the company
is having trouble In operating the
new Hampton yard. The "hump"
feature is what Hallstead especially
regards as a failure.
The "hump," which is a grade for
running cars down and distributing
them on their proper tracks, Is a new
feature In yard operations for Lack
awanna yard men. Consequently
the idea is giving' the yard officials
a lot of bother. The yard men ad
mit they are working as they have
never worked, but they hope that as
soon as they get an understanding
of the "hump" things will go along
John Mitchell Endorses Tener.
A special from Pittsburg says:
Before a crowd of 10,000 miners,
workingmen and citizens, at Char
leroi on the Fourth, John Mitchell,
former president of the United Mine
Workers, addressed Congressman
John K. Tener, Republican candidate
for governor, as the next executive
of Pennsylvania and besought him
to recommend laws that would safe
guard the worker.
Mr. Mitchell said he gave up the
pleasures of the day at home to ac
cept an invitation from his friend,
Congressman Tener, to address the
miners and citizens of Charleroi and
felt repaid for the effort.
TO FIRE CROKER?
New York, July 7. That Fire Chief
Edward F. Croker, more than ten years
in command of the fire fighting forces
of this city, who recently branded most
of his subordinates as narrow chested
cigarette smokers, is incompetent, a
bungler and unlit to remain at the head
of the department, is tho verdict of the
three subordinate olllcers who, with
Croker, have been Instituting nn in
quiry Into the lire at 110 Washington
street on June 0 last. In which two
firemen lost their lives.
Within a few days the report will
be placed In the hands of Fire Com
missioner Waldo who, even Chief Cro
ker's friends admit, is prepared to pre
fer charges and fix a date for trial in
the near future.
During the three weeks that the In
vestigation has been under way Croker
was had little or nothing to say about
it. He lias been ruled by his subor
dinates from the start and they have
been consistently supported by Com
missioner Wnldo, who Is generally U;
lleved to be determined to get rid of
Croker nt any cost.
Here are some of the things that
Croker's three subordinates, Deputy
Chiefs Lully and Langford and Bat
talion Chief Howe, charge him with:
Incompetence, neglect of duty, bad
management in directing the attack
on the Washington street lire and bad
Judgment in distributing the men, so
badly handling tho fire that lives were
lost, and that two alarms had to be
turned iu for a fire that ordinarily
would not have called for more than
The most serious charge of all, how
ever, Is that Croker ordered the water
Jower stream turned on In the front
of tho building and lines of hose In
the rear without notifying the compa
nies inside that the water was coming.
This, it is alleged, was the real cause
of the death of Firemen Healy and
Cotter, and not a back draught as stat
ed by Croker.
Practically the same charges that
are made against Croker are made
against Deputy Chief BInns, ids per
sonal friend, who was iu charge of tho
fire up to the time the chief arrived.
Battalion Chief Brogan, who was first
nt the fire, also Is severely criticised.

we had to offer they threw up their
hands and said that they could not
admit our boys because some of their
professors were members of the Car
