lotte Baumann.
Mrs. Ashby was entertaining Mrs.

were up stairs playing, that she
heard noises similar to that of a
child falling on the floor. Mrs. Ash
by told her neighbor that there was
nobody upstairs. Mrs. Baumann
then stepped to the door, looked up,
when she discovered flames on the

sent in to which all the fire com
panies responded. At first two
streams were turned on the 'burning
building, which, however, was con
fined to one bedroom. Water was
secured from the hydrant at Indus

clothing, bed quilts, etc.

William Dodge appeared before the

could connect with the town sewer

tapping. A committee of three was
appointed by President Caufleld to
take over the private sewer.

nite arrangements could not be

ment of the care, and maintenance

is not liable for any expense incurred
by reason of the quarantine, but if

senting the Wayne -County Street
Railway company, presented a writ

chise was asked for but an expres
sion of the council towards the
granting of a franchise. After the
Incorporation of the company the
State requires such an expression In
order to have assurance that the
company would receive such a fran
chise after the granting of the char
ter. The following resolution was
then adopted by the council:

ance of a Street Railway Company,

Was Head of St. Paul Railroad
Died in New York on Friday
. Has Three Sisters Living in
Roswell Miller, chairman of the
board of directors of the Chicago,
Milwaukee and St. Paul Railroad,
was found dead In bed at his home,
19 East Sixty-second street, early
Friday morning.
He had suffered from apoplexy for
several years, and It is thought he
had a stroke in the night, dying
without being able to call for as
sistance. Mr. Miller has been In good health
lately. He spent the holidays In his
summer home at Mlllbrook, N. Y.,
and went to his office, 42 Broadway,
on Thursday last as usual.
Mr. Miller, who as chairman of
the board of directors of the St.
Paul took- a large part In raising
millions which that road required
for its Pacific coast extension, was
born in Harford, Pa., October 28,
1843. He was educated In the pub
lic schools and academy of that
town, and when he left school he en
tered the service of the Cairo and
Vlncennes Railroad. His rise was
rapid in that service, and he soon
became secretary. Then he was ap
pointed superintendent, and held
that position until 1882, when he
changed to the Chicago and Western
Indiana Railroad, becoming second
vice-president and treasurer.
The next year he became assistant
to the general manager of the Chi
cago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Rail
road; a year later he became gener
al manager. In 1885 he was ap
pointed general manager, and held
this position for three years.
Then he was appointed president
and general manager of the St. Paul.
He did double duty for two years,
and In 1890 was relieved of the work
as manager. As president Mr. Mil
ler directed the affairs of the rail-
road for nine vears.
In 1899, he
became chairman of the board of di
rectors, 'being head of the New York
office, the duty of which Is to direct
.the finances of the road.
The growth of the St. Paul to Its
present importance occurred in the
years that Mr. Miller was connected
with it. The largest work which the
road undertook with him In charge
of the finances was the extension
from St. Paul to Seattle.
His wife, who was Miss Mary L.
Roberts, of Now York, whom he
married in 1893, survives him.
Mr. Miller is survived by three
sisters, all of whom live In Hones
dale, namely, Mrs. E. F. Torrey,
Mrs,, J. F. Edgar and Miss Sarah
Muter". '
Republicans Hold Caucus and Nomi
nate Scott, But Not a Mnjority
in Attendance Alter Likely
to bo Speaker.
Harrlsburg, Jan. 6. Fifty-seven
Republican members of the House
of Jtepresentatlves held a Republi
can caucus tonight or rather failed
at holding it. Fifty-six Democrats
did hold a caucus. Gathered In
the Republican caucus were the Al
legheny and Philadelphia County re
presentatlves and a few others, while
ninety-three Republicans and Wash
ingtonlans stayed away.
One hundred and 'four are required
to elect and It Is taken for granted
here that George E. Alter, of Alle
gheny county has the ninety-three
votes pledged. That number doesn't
represent his main strength however,
for Ave of the fifty-seven at the
"Regular caucus" voted for Mr. Al
ter after declaring that 'they would
not he bound by the caucus result
Four others, one of whom did not
vote and two of whom voted for G.
W. Allen, of Allegheny, and one for
John R. K. Scott, of Philadelphia
announced that they would not be
bound by the result of the caucus
That gives Alter 102 votes two short
of the number necessary to elect.
The only thing missing at the
caucus of the regulars was the votes,
John R. K. Scott was made the cau
cus nominee for speaker. He made
a speech and so did George Rich
ards, of Allegheny, who placed Mr,
Allen's name before the caucus and
W. H. Wilson, of Philadelphia, who
nominated Mr. Scott.
Tho five Lackawanna Republican
Washington members, and all of the
other Northeastern representatives
of that political faith stayed away
from the caucus. Although contrary
to expectations, although two cau
cuses were held, those who partlci
pated In the caucus will not organize
the house.
Death of Mrs. Laura Schenck.
Laura Dibble, relict of H. P,
Schenck, died at the home of her
daughter, Mrs. Warren P. Schenck
Monday night, January 6, 1913, of
pneumonia. She was born in Gil
ford, Shire county, New York, on
March 14, 1828, and came to Wayne
county about thirty-eight years ago.
She was eighty-four years, ten
'months and nine days old at the time
of her death. She had been a resi
dent of Cherry Ridge for forty-six
years. She was a member of the
Cherry Ridge M. E. church, having
been a devout member of that faith
for sixty-six years. She Is survived
by an only child, Mrs. W. P. Schenck.
The funeral will bo held at the home
of her daughter Friday morning at
10:30 o'clock. The services will be
conducted by Rev. Will H. Hlller, as
sisted by Rev. Walker, of Cherry
Ridge. Interment will be made in
the Cherry Ridge cemetery.

rooms which later will become work
rooms, and remained orderly and
peaceful there until dinner was pre
pared In the large dining hall In the
basement. After the dinner the men
returned to the day room, where
they remained until assigned to
proper quarters.
Considering the rush of arrivals
all coming together the situation
was handled In exceptional style by
the superintendent and his attend
ants. After their long trip, the men
were tired and hungry, but In spite
of that fact they waited patiently un
til 3 o clock when a smoking hot
dinner of boiled potatoes, roast meat,
stewed fish, tomatoes, coffee and
bread was served In generous dishes.
There was no complaint of illness in
the party, which is a rare thing in
