Tomorrow,
A movement preliminary to the es
tablishment of a homeopathic hospital
In Scranton was Inaugurated nt a
meeting of well-known nnd lnlluen
tlal men and women nt the Albrlcht
library list night. Over $2,000, or aljout
half the cost of maintaining a fifteen
bed hospital for one year was (sub
scribed nt tho meeting.
The hospltnl movement was Inaugu
rated last Friday at a meeting of. wo
men nt the home of Mrs. A. M. Decker.
At that time a preliminary organiza
tion was perfected and Mrs. H. M,
Boles elected president, Mrs. C. D.
Simpson, Mrs. W. T. Smith, Mrs. G. II.
Smith nnd Mrs. T. E. Jones vice-presidents.
Mrs. Henry Helln, Jr., treasurer,
Mrs. M. W. Holgnte corresponding sec
retary, and Miss Emellne II. Richmond
recording secretary. Circular Invita
tions to attend InBt night's general
meeting were Issued and about sixty

Mr. and Mrs. It M Scranton, Dr nnd
Mrs. G. J. Berllnghoff, George DeWitt,
Dr. A. A. Linderbury, L. M. Bunnell.
COL. BOIES PRESIDENT.
Colonel Boles was chosen to preside
nnd In response to a request he out
lined the hospital project. It was
started, he said, not In opposition to
tho allopathic school of medicine, but
according to the wishes and needs of
rich and poor who believed in the
homeopathic school, but who, If they
entered any of the present hospitals
In this part of the state as pay or
free patients would be obliged to re
ceive allapathlc treatment. It was due
also to homeopathic physicians, Colonel
Boles explained, that they should not
be barred from the benefits and facili
ties of hospital practice.
According to the present rules of the
Lackawanna and other hospitals In tho
city and vicinity, the new school of
physicians or homeopaths are not per
mitted to practice therein. Tho pro
moters of the homeopathic hospital
were not to be understood as criticis
ing tho rules of the allopathic associa
tions, but It seemed nothing more than
Just that their new school bretheren
should have equal opportunities for ad
vantageous practice and learning.
The executives of the Blair estate
hod offered the homestead property at
the corner of Washington avenue and
Mulberry street fot hospital purposes at
a rental price of $500 per year, so Col
onel Boles stated. He further re
marked that the officers of the hospi
tal movement had estimated that $4,
000, divided as follows, would about
maintain a 15-bed institution for a
year: Rent, $500; heat and light, $200;
water, $00; two nurses, $540; servants
and attendants, $540; fool supplies, $1,
800; telephone, $o0; incidentals, $310;
total. $4,000.
THOSE WHO SPOKE.
In responso to calls by the chairman
there were remarks by Dr. J. W. Cool
ldge, Dr. II. B. Ware, Dr. Theodore
Johnson, of West Pittston; J. Ben Dlm
mlck, Colonel George Sanderson and
Henry Belln, Jr. The two latter sug
gested that inasmuch as there seemed
to bo no question about the need of
the Institution, those present should
begin In a prnctlcal way to create It.
It could not be started without a pledge
of funds and they suggested subscrip
tions on the spot. The suggestion was
offered as a motion by Mr. Belln and
was ndopted.
Mrs. C. D. Simpson, the first vlce-prc-sldent,
and Miss Emellne Richmond,
the recording secretary.were appointed
a temporary soliciting committee. They
secured the following pledges from
among those present:
Marjorlo Christian, $500; Colonel and
Mrs. H. M. Boles, $200; Mr. and Mrs.
Henry Belln, jr., $200: Mr. and Mrs. J.
Ben Dlmmlck, $100; Mr. and Mrs. T. II.
Wntklns, $200; Mr. and Mrs. F. M.
Vandllng $100; N. G. Robertson, $30;
Dr. and Mrs. J. AV. Coolldge, $100; Mr.
and Mrs. C. D. Simpson, $200; Mra. A.
H. Storrs, $25; Mrs. A. M. Decker, $25;
J. AV. Oakford, $50; L. M. Bunnell, $25;
Mrs H. B. Arare and son, $100; Dr.
Theodore M. Johnson, $30; Dr. A. A.
Llndabury, $25; Dr. G. J. Berllnghof,
$25; Mrs. E. L. Fuller, $25; George De
AVItt,$25. The subscriptions were pledg
ed annually for two years. That of
Marjoile Christian was by her father,
F. P. Christian.
MEETING FOR WOMEN.
A meeting for women In connection
with the hospital movement was an
nounced for 10 o'clock tomorrow morn
ing at tho home of Mrs. S. M.Decker,
019 Jefferson avenue.
It is not settled that the hospital will
be located in tho Blair homestead, nor
In fact are any of tho arrangements
definitely decided, but the hospital Is
assured and a permanent organization
will soon bo perfected. It will have to
be self-supporting for two years, but
after that stnte aid will be granted to
the extent of $7 per week for each In
digent patient.
It was announced at last night's meet
ing that there are but 100 homeopathic
hospitals In this country; Scranton
ranking thirty-fifth In population
nmong tho cities of tho United States,
is without one.
IS IIAVINQ ITS EFFECT.
Now Allon Tax Law Making Itself
Felt Iloro.
Tho new law requiring aliens to give
up three conts a day from their wages
will have the effect, no doubt, of ma
terlally Increasing tho number of citi
zens In this and such other counties as
have a large number of unnaturalized
residents.
Many of thes, particularly English
spenklng aliens, aro indifferent as to
whether or not tlity become citizens,
They do not take enough interest in
the country or its Institutions to go to
the trouble nnd expense of taking out
papers and becoming contributors to
tho Bupport of tho benefices they en
Joy, This new law makes it not only
more troublesome and expensive- to be
an alien than a citizen, but It also by
reason of the clauro requiring the em
ployers to do the collecting makes
them undesirable in a measure as em
ployes. An Instance of tho fact th'at tho law
is going to have the effect described In
tho above speculation, occurred In one
of the court house offices yesterday. A
foreigner who has been In this coun
try ten years applied tor and secured
his first papers. Ho wanted to know
how soon ho could secure full citizen
ship papers, and when told he must
wait two years ho was very much ex
ercised and wanted to know if there
wasn't any way of getting second pa
pers forthwith, or within a few
months. Ho offered to give the clerk
who was waiting on him $10 if ho
could arrange to got him his citizen
papers within bIx months.
TWO SERIOUS ACCIDENTS.
Thomas Morgan Fatally Injured Going to
Farvlcw and Edward Vannan Killed
While Returning Home.
Two accidents occurred yesterday to
passengers going to nnd returning from
tho Queen's Jubilee celebration at Far
view. About 7 o'clock last night Ed
ward A'annan, of Carbondalc, a young
man 2G years of age, got aboard a train
of thirty-two open gravity cars at Far
view to return to his home. He sat
about in tho middle of the train and
when four miles from Farvlew the con
ductor demanded his ticket, he could
not produce It and was put off.
After the train was In motion he
tried to again get on and fell between
two of the cars and was literally cut In
two. Alongside of his dead body his
ticket was found. The remains were
placed on the train and taken to Car
bondale and wero afterwards removed
to his home on Canaan street. Mr.
Vannan was a painter. Coroner Long
street will hold an Inquest today.
At 10:15 a. m., while the through ex
cursion train was going to Carbondale
a coupling pin broke and the last car
of the train left the track. Thomas
Morgan, of Nantlcoke, and Conductor
David Nlchol, of Green Ridge, were on
the platform at the time and were
thrown to the ground. Conductor
Nlchol struck on his shoulder nnd es
caped without broken bones, but sus
tained a number of severe bruises.
Mr. Morgan struck on his head and
was fatally Injured. He was taken to
tho Lackawanna hospital In this city.
It was reported there last night that
Morgan Is suffering from concussion of
the brnln, and that his chances of re
covery are very slight. He Is a man
CO years of age, nnd has a wife In AVales.

EXERCISES DELAYED.
It was the original Intention to have
tho exercises begin at 11.30, but owing
to delays In reaching the park on the
part of a large number of persons it
was almost 3 p. m., when Captain T.
C. Parker of Arilkes-Barre took his
position on a rock jutting out from the
sloping hillside below the first ob

"America" under the direction of
Gwllym Amos.
Captain Parker then announced that
owing to some unfortunate circum
stances tho orators who were to ad
dress the large assemblage were unable
to be present. lie regretted It for It
was an occasslon to Inspire any orator.
On this day the nations of the world
were paying tribute to the world's
greatest queen and If those who were
bound to her by no particular ties were
moved to do honor to her, how much
more should those he was addressing
rejoice on this, her Jubilee, for were
they not of the same blood?
A medley of airs, peculiar to tho
United Kingdom, were rendered by the
band and the choir sang, "God Save the
Queen." Those In the audlenece arising

A. Grcnt Convenience Tor Traveler.
Pullman's Palaco Car Company have
added tho American Newspaper Annual
to tho libraries on the "Pennsylvania
Limited," "Colonial Express" and other
trains of that class. Tho AA'agner Pal
aco Car Company havo mado similar
provision for their passengers. This
work is also in tho libraries of nearly
all tho Ocean, Coast Sound, Lake and
River Steamers.
Thft American Newspaper Annual is
an encyclopedia of newspapers and
periodicals published in the United
States, Territories and Dominion of
Canada, and of gazetteer facts of the
places in which they aro published.
These gazetteers facts embrace popula
tion, political complexion, transporta
tion and banking facilities, leading pro
ducts and industries, and other Infor
mation which Is of especial lntetest
when traveling through these places.
The work Is published by N. AV. Ayer
,& Bon, the well-known Newspaper Ad
vertising Agents of Philadelphia, and
hns long boon recognized as tho au
thority on all mutters of tills kind.
AVo feel confident that no more use
ful volumo can be found In tho libraries
of th cars and steamers, nnd nono
to which reference will oftener bo
made. Tho newspapers of the coun
try and tho traveling public generally
will, wo aro sure, be greatlv benefited
and gratified by this provision for their
convenience.
