ARRESTED FOR ABUSING A BABY.
Spcclnl Olllcor Levy's Story Is Con
trndictcd by Kyc-Witncsscs.
Henry Williams was arrested yes
terday afternoon by Special Olllcer
Levy, n man employed at the Bell
clothing house on Lackawanna avenue.
The charge made by Levy on the
pplice docket was that Williams threw
a little girl Into the stieet.
John Hunden, car dispatcher at the
Traction company office, who witnessed
the arrest, says that Williams and his
wife were having a quarrel as they
came out of the clothing house. Wil
liams was not creating a disturbance,
nnd wan walking along with his wife
nd thiee small children. He picked
up one of the children, a girl, and was
currying her when the special appeared
and actually fqiced Williams to drop
tho child to tho sidewalk. Tho baby's
lip was cut. The special then escorted
Williams to the station house and
lodged the charge against him.
Williams' wife and tho children ap
peared nt tho station house later In
tho afternoon und had her husband re
leased until this morning. They live In
tho North End.
ALL KINDS OF WARES.
Just n Pointer or Two About Some of
tho Goods Sold by Cloinons, Per
nor, O'Mnllcy Co., One oftho City's
Vow Importing Houscs--Hcro Are
n Few Facts of Ron), Livo Interest.
There Is a reflex action somewhere
between the course of Old Dame Na
ture und those Bkiltcd purveyors who
minister to her children's needs. What
ever Is blessed with tho complicated
activities of existence tries to add to
its attractiveness, and hence to its
possessions. Thl may seem deeply
rhllosophlcol; but It Is also a common
sense reason for spring openings.
From the mement that the first faint
blush of the ntbutus Is coyly seen
among the snow drifts', every other
bud nnd blossom with buds clustering
about it, for that matter, Is watching
for the best spring opening, and the
fact suggests the bits bf poesy In fab
rications and econbmlc prose In prlea,
which is to be found at the well-known
establishment of demons, Ferber,
O'Malley Co,, (limited), whose capa
cious Importing warehouse, at 422
Lackawanna awnue, Is now teeming
with nil the fancies of the season. In
the newest goods which can make
homo beautiful, and the season mem
orable. Others claim to have good3 of equal
quality but none have the temerity to
clnlm prices so low for the values de
livered. They can not do this, for tho
Arm Is known to be the largest Im
porters In Northeastern Pennsylvania,
nnd, dealing at purely first hands has
no real competitor.
When one goes through the well
nppolnted bazaar which Is tho h'olne of
so much luxury, It Is difficult to pick
out vihat 13 most attractive; but one
can not get thiough the first floor
without reveling In a wealth of China
which 1 1 vets every eye tmlncd to the
beautiful. Here are all the deft pro
ductions of the French Kilns. Dainty
Havlland, with delicate traceries of
spilng against their translucenco
which bring the wild-woods to one's
own board. The Charles Field Havll
arjd, equally ait 1st if, R. Delllnler &
Co., and L. Sazarat & Co., equally
prized by conntsseurs and appreciated
by those who love the beautiful and
yet are not posted on makers' marks.
They don't have to be in this house.
Nothing Is sold, except tho genuine,
and that, during this opening, at prices
which are surprising.
And then come Carlsbad wares. All
know what they are; but few have
seen such novel shape3 and fascinating
conceptions. That standby, Ihe En
glish porcelain, the Gibraltar of the
housewife and the caterer, lias also
new shapes, and Maddox, genuine
Wedgowood, Furnival, or Powell &
Bishop, have equally attractive prices
attached to them for the opening.
But more light on the situation.
Just look at the lamps. Jasper, of
Scriptural record; onyx, gold, silver,
the queer conceits In Dresden, or
wrought Iron all these take up an Im
mense iloor space, and represent every
line th'at Is worth presentation:
But rlcht here Is a department of
prismatic brilliancy which will hold
the shopper spell-bound. It Is the my
Had factn of unique cut glas3 which
hypnotize, or possibly more, the prices
that nie made for this special opening
hypnotize. Dorillnger & Sons', nnd
Clarke's glass stand par excellence,
nnd nil tho winter months the busy
grinders bent over their rapid wheels
to mako this consignment tho best
that has been turned out from their
extensive works this many a day, and
all at low prices for the opening.
Clarence Couk says In "House Beau
tiful" that the balance of good taste
lies la the small decorations. Consid
ered from this standpoint the display
of bric-a-brac and art goods becomes
most interesting. The best concep
tions, Belleck.Wedgewood, Royal Wor
cester, Royal Bonn, Teplitz, Dresden,
Severes, and Royal Vienna, all have
full representation and cun satisfy the
most fastidious. Many of these gems
of art have never been seen outside
of the large cities, and none of them
except as single pieces put In some
small establishment with a fabulous
price attached. Here they constitute
a small art gallery In themselves, and
the prices attached are themselves an
occular demonstration of (he enormous
amount of Importing done by this
loading house, else they could never
sell so cheap.
It Is rather a delicate matter to
write a general description of such
an emporium s this, and then suggest
baby carriages to a quite mixed audi
ence; but if you need them, they are
there Just the same, and such as would
tempt even the most confirmed bachel
ortomatrlmonyjustforthe sake of get
ting such beauties fcr so little money.
Then you know, the baby will have to
have milk, and this must be kept cool
at the least expense for Ice, and the
most perfect sanitation. Do you know
anything better for that than one of
tho Jewett's Patent Charcoal-filled
Refrigerators, and water-coolers?
They are the cheapest because they
nnd the best, and the best because they
do not cost at this opening any more
than the Inferior articles that are be
ing palmed off on the public as cheap.
And now to tho b.-d-room; what Is
piettler, more sensible, more within the
reach of every purse, or made in more
artistic styles to meet the diversifica
tion of tattes than tho American ware
that Is taking its place on veral con
tinents. This fltnv haa Just received
one of the largest and most complete
lines that ever left the celebrated fac
tories, and It Is made a special price
feature for tho opening. If you want to
get something more expensive and also
more friable, there Is just as large a
stock of the Imported to select from.
It would bo superfluous to say there
arc Jardlnlers, pedestals, umbrella
stands and all that sort of thing In all
tho wares In which such articles ore
manufactured. "Whatever constitutes
a full stock Is represented, and tho
teeming floors offer to Inspection a per
fect museum of curiosities. But tho
stock does not alone constitute the mu
seum. It Is the price list that will do
that for any one who vlalts the operi
Ing during the next few days. Th'e
demons, Ferber, O'Malley Co. is mak
ing this special drive becuuso It has
for years permed the policy which has
given It such prominence. Although
for the next few days tho prjees are
shaded down to meet the requirements
of spring nnd summer shopping, the
goods are all standard, and are all
such as they always carry In stock.
Anything that you buy, comes from a
first-class maker, and can always be
duplicated. They sell nothing which
they will not guarantee to match any
time, your, cook or, maid Is unfortu
nate with your choicest possessions,
and the prices will sul,t you. ,

Negotiations were perfected recently
for the lease of seventy acres of the
Canavan coal tract In the Tenth ward
of this city and the southeastern part
of Dunmoro nnd according to agreement
a coal colliery will be In operation
there within six months' time.
Tho "breaker will be located near
Nay Aug park between tho Delaware,
Lackawanna nnd Western nnd tho
Erie and Wyoming Valley railroad
The capacity of the colliery can bo
Judged by tho fact that tho shaft will
be sunk five hundred feet; that three
veins will be worked in co-operation,
and that one of tho veins has a depth
of eight feet of the best coal.
Another thing which gives to th'e
transaction a substantial and serious
air Is the Identity of the prospective
operators. The new company consists
of John G. GlUigan, formerly foreman
at the Richmond colliery; Patrick Mc
Nulty, Inspector of tho Pennsylvania
Coal company; Anthony Mcllale, fore
man of the Nay Aug Coal company,
and Philip Hastings,
John P. Canavan Is the lessor. Mr.
Canavan was first proprietor of the

SOLDIERS WERE NOISY.
Company B Did Not Tip-Toe Into the
Crlttenton Meeting, Held
The Crlttenton meeting last night In
the armory was attended by a good
sized audience. Rev. George E. Guild
occupied a seat on the platform and
participated In the meeting.
Mr. Crlttenton spoke on "Behold, He
Standeth at the Door and Knocks."
Tho immortal passage was used to
flno advantage by the speaker. He
likened the conscience to the poor and
the feeling of wrong that Is done as
the knock of Jesus. The pangs of re
gret of an 111 deed or an omitted act
were also characterized.
At one time during the latter part
of Mr. Crlttenton's address the mem
bers of Company B marched Into the
armory and Interrupted the service for
a few minutes. The soldiers were re
turning from an outdoor drill. Mr. Crlt
tenton was Just a bit rebuking In his
remark: "We'll stop tho service we do
not wish to disturb them" meaning
the soldiers who were making the clat
ter In the rear of the armory. The
meeting was afterward continued.
At tho after prayer meeting a large
number responded to Mr. Crlttenton's

INDIAN BIDS CANCELLED.
New Contracts Will lie fllndo During
tho Month of July.
"Washington Juno 14. Tho bids for
furnishing clothing supplies to tho en
tire Indian service have been finally
cancelled, and new bids will .be called
for by Comlssloncr of Indian Affairs
Jones, to be opened In New York city,
July IB or 17. The Investigation of tho
way In which the old specifications
wero framed, by which ono of the bid
ders, It Is alleged, would have secured
the contract through useless technical
requirements has almost been con
cluded. Collusion of certain employes
has been charged and It Is possible that
several removals may result In the In
dian bureau. The examination made
by Mr. Jones hns been very careful
and thorough and has practically suc
ceeded In placing the responsibility for
the condition of affairs to several em
ployes. The result of tho Investigation will
be reported very fully to Secretary
Bliss. The present specifications are
broad and liberal in their terms, tho
Idea being to secure clothing goods of
tho best all around utility without be
ing restricted to peculiar brands and
descriptions such as wero asked for In
