' Comparatlwly few persons learn to
play the- harp with the lnlontlon-of be
coming public performers," said Miss
Mnud Morgan to a Tribune reporter the
otlwr evening1. The renowned harpist
had just left the Btase of the Frotli
lngli'am where she charmed the audi
ence with one of her solos nnd during
tho Interval that elapsed until she was
again called on the .tare she chatted
pleasantly about her art. "I have Riv
en Instruction to a larce numbpr of
persons many of w horn have become
skillful performers but nearly every
one of them learned for the pleasure
the accomplishment .Rave tljem or their
Immediate friends and wltli no desire
to appear In public th'ough some of
them were qualified to afford much
pleasure to lovers of music and also
to win very high praise from the most
exacting critics. For several years I
have worked constantly to popularize
the harp and It Is now In more general
use than ever before I believe. I have
given Instruction on the harp, lecture
about It, arranged music fox It and It
Is home gratification to me, you may
believe, to know that my wotk has
not all been In vain. When my father
first purchased a harp for me there was
but one sonuwhut obscure manufactur
er of the instrument In Now York city.
Now there are a number and tho harp
Is gradually winning its way Into tho
best orchestras and Is being largely
used In churches. When I was chosen
liarplst of Oraco church In New Yoik
the Introduction of the Instrument
eoemeil somewhat of an Innovation but
now they are an established feature
of the music In many churches
throughout the land. Tho Welsh peo
ple arc great lovers of the harp and
have clone much for It. While the harp
is one or the revered emblems of Ire
land anil Inseparably connected with
Its legends and lib poetry the Irish
of today bcem to have no desire to
'raw tho sweetness from tho lnstru
)., their beloved Jloore ro often and
tende. preferred to. Why Is this so?
No one can tell; Its merely one of the
eemlngl.v strange Incongruities of
life."-1 M13E Morgan ndvanced the opin
ion that the cost and sensitiveness of
the harp hn3 much to do In preventing
It from being more generally used. A
good Instrument costs from $1,000 to
S1.S00 and Is very easily ruined especial
ly If jt receives careless handling when
being transferred from place to place.
Naturally she Ir nn ardent champion
of tho instrument she has so thorough
ly mastered and believes that In Amer
ica there Is an over broadening future
"We are arranging tho last of the
preliminaries now and In a few days
will begin the work of erecting tho
new theater that Wllkes-nano is to

regularly by a theater with any degree

"This city Is dentlned to bo a great
silk manufacturing centre," said Secre
tary Atherton of the board of trade the
other day. "1 don't know Just the rea
son but almost cvety ellk man who
comes to Scranton to Inquire Into the
advantages It offers as a manufactur
ing site Is more than pleased with tho
city and In time they will naturally
gravitate here. Not long ago the agent
of a largo silk manufacturing firm
made a tour of the kackawnnna nnd
Wyoming valleys and even went down
Into Schuylkill county In search' of a
site for a mill. After his tour was
completed he unhesitatingly pronounc
ed In favor of Scranton and I feel con
fident that In a short time we will have
another large factory hero for tho
manufacture of silk goods."

Considering the Report of the
Joint Conference Committee.
Two matters of extreme importance
will engago the attention of councils
tonight. The select branch meets In
regular session for the transaction of
general business, while the lower body
will convene especially to consider the
report of tho joint conference commit
tee In relation to the agreement reach
ed between Democrats nnd Republi
cans on the appropriation ordinance.
Tho mayor's recent removal of Street
Commissioner Kinsley and his appoint
ment of A. B. Dunning, Jr., to Bucceed
Mr. Klntley will be treated In a report
from the Judiciary committee to whom
both tho removal and appointment
havo been referred. There Is no con
cealment of the fact that tho Demo
crats with the possible exception of
Mr. Mianley are opposed to Mr. Dun
nlng's appointment while It Is equally
ns well understood that tho Republl-cans-ulll
support the mayor's selection.
President Sander&on cannot be pres
ent on account of the death of a rela
tive and Mr, Robinson, the Independent
Democrat, who would stand by the
appointee, Is 111 and may not bo pres
ent. But without thos two votes, Mr.
Manley's vote would confirm tho ap
pointment. The question has been raised that ns
Mr. Kinsley's term of office does not
expire until June 17, he would be enti
tled to draw salary until that date If
councils are not specific In tho "oiuso"
of the removal. It Is possible that this
contingency may delay any specific re
port by the committee. The commit
tee will, meet an hour before the coun
cil convenes, and. It Is said, will have
beforo them nn opinion from City So
licitor Tcrrey as to whether tho action
of mayor and councils regarding tho
removal has been regular.

Kespondonts in Dmiinoro Contest
Will licgiu Their Ono Today.
Today, tho respondents In the Dun
moro contest will begin their ntempt to
overcome the big lead which the Re
publicans now have for tho coveted
borough offices. C. C. Donovan and T.
J. Duggan are their attorneys nnd Spe
cial Ofilcers J. J. Murray and J. J.
Loftus, of Dunmore, will look after the
corralling of the 900 or more witnesses
who have been subpoenaed. About 60
witnesses from the First ward have
been summoned beforo the commission
for examination today.
Mr. Donovan, In conversation with a
Tribune reporter, yesterday said he
was still confident that the Democrats
would be allowed to retain their ofllces.
He declined, however, to go Into details
to explain on what he based this confi
dence. To save their bacon the Democrats
will have to disqualify 200 votes and It
Is generally conceded that It Is not pos
sible for them to do this.
