For tho past few months tho politicians
of the South and Southwest districts of

lating for some good material to p'aee
before tho next county convention. Nu
merous names aro mentioned by both
Democrats and Republicans, but from all
appearances the strongest and most suit
able Is that of Griffith T. Davis, of Green
wood, who is spoken of as a candidate
for prothonotary. Mr. Davis Is one of
tho leading members of the Greenwood
Republican club, and although young In
years his knowledge, of the great Ameri
ca's game of politics Is conclusive evi
dence that he Is well qualified to handle
tho reins of a county berth. The selec

hearty approval of each and every citi

A narty of Scranton capitalists who
have been drilling at Lovelton, this
county, struck a good flow of gas last
night at a depth of S00 feet. Tho snme
territory was tested about eighteen
years ago, and gas sufficient to bo of
considerable value was found. The gas
vein was cut off, however, tho parties

the vast iron and steel Industries in that

way system of Scranton has boon under
tho present management, large sums of
money havo been extended each year to
improve the system, and no fair minded
man will deny that there has been givat
improvement. xnero is room for ftlii
further Improvement, and it Is the pur
pose of our company to expend large
sums of money additional with the Ideu
of extending and perfecting the system
within a reasonable length of tlmo and
making it one of the best In the country.
A reduction in fares would naturally re
sult In stopping all such expenditures for
extensions and Improvements, and. In
addition would almost surely result In a
reduction of wages to employes, which Is
tho only way that tho expense of opera
tion could be reduced to meet the reduc
tion In recolpts duo to lower fares. The

THE CITY'S HEALTH.
While tho city has been by comparison
with other cities remarkably freo from
anything approaching epidemics, still
there has been at times minor diseases
which have been so wide-spread as to
compel Investigation by the health au
thorities. Tho result of Mips. invpsHn-.i.
tions has been to emphasize the need for
better sanitary regulations than those
which exist In certain localities. As a
step toward better and mora modrrn s.n.
itation I would suggest a system of dally
garbagv collection by closed metal carts.
This, whllo It might make necessary an
Increase in the crematory nnd other ap
propriations would, I feel sure, more than
pay for itself in the lessened liability of
the residents of Scranton to the ravages
THE CITY'S POOR.
I would then call to your attention the
propriety of making appropriation for
those who by reason of the business de
pression, advanced age, ill health, or
from any other cause, have been thrown
out of employment. I recommend In n y
Inaugural message that an experiment
with the plan of municipal farms which
has worked so well In Detroit, Buffalo,
and other cities might demonstrate tho
wisdom of its adoption here. I still hold
to that opinion and now reiterate my
former suggestion. I am sure that tlm
uso of much good land lying on the out
skirts of the city would be donated for
such a purpose, and I am also curtain
that seed and tho necessary tools would
be provided in plenty if councils took the
Initiative. If anything Is to be dona in
this matter during this year, It must be
dono at once.
In conclusion, I desire to return thanks
for all courtesies which I have experi
enced during tho first year of my admin
istration. If I have made mistakes they
havo not been of tho heart. It 13 my
highest ambition to servo this city well
and to administer tho affairs of my office
honestly. Impartially and effectively. To
do this It Is necessary to obtain vour un
selfish cooperation, and It Is this which L
asic irom you uuring tne coming year.
Without It, much good that might havo
been accomplished will remain undone.
With it, the citizens of Scranton will bo
protected and tho best interests of all
will bo conserved.
