Walter McNlchols was the toastnms
ter and Introduced the various speak
ers In a way that pleased the banquet
ers Immensely. In his Introductory re
marks he welcomed all on behalf of the
Hoclety and referred to the history of
the organization from Its Inception.
The corps, he said, has been prosper
ous ever since it was established and
the reason the boys are Inclined to be
a little struck on themselves is be

like theirs in the city.
M. S. Lavelle, president of the Hyde

speaker called upon and he referred to
the upbuilding of te total abstinence
cause with much pride and satisfac
tion. He expressed the belief that the
West Scranton temperance societies
should be closer allied, and that there
Is urgent need of a home for their own
particular use In this section of the
John H. Devine, president of St.
Leo's battalion, spoke In a practical
way and grew eloquent in espousing
the cause of total abstinence. There
Is urgent need, ho sat'd, of keen, active
temperate men In every walk of life
and the development of the rising gen
eration along that line.
Frank McLain, ex-president of St.
Paul's, spoke on the subject of "Unity
in the Total Abstinence Movement,"

TEST FOR YOURSELF
The Wonderful Curative Properties of Swamp-Root.
To Prove What the Oreat Kidney, Liver and Bladder Remedy Will Do
for YOU, Every Reader of The Tribune flay Have a Samplf
Bottle Sent Free by Hall.
It used to be considered that only urinary and bladder troubles were to
be traced to the kidneys, but now modern science proves that nearly nil
diseases have their beginning In tho dlsoidcr of these most important or
gans. The kidneys filler and purify the blood, that Is their work.
Bo when your kidneys are weak or out of order, you can understand how
quickly your entire body Is uffected, and how every organ seems to fall
to do Its duty.
If ynu are sick or "feel badty," begin taking the famous new discovery,
Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, because as soon us your kidneys are well they
will help all the other organs to health. A trial will convince anyone.

Scranton Water to Be Turned Into
Water Mains This Morning Coun
cil Discussed Question Last Night
Several Indignant citizens expressing
their views, together with a spirited
discussion by the members of council
regarding the water difficulties, caused
last night's special meeting of council
to be a lively one for over half an
hour. The meeting was called to hear
tho report of the committee appointed
Monday night by council to see Presi
dent Scranton, of the Scranton Gas and
Water company, and make a request
that they assist the Dunmore Gas and
Water company In supplying water
to the residents of the borough.
The committee, Messrs. Payton,
Jones nnd Brogan, reported that they
had performed their duties and had
waited upon the officials of the Scran
ton Gas and Water company.
The company, reported the commit
tee, was w llling to supply the borough
with water, but had on hand no pipes
to lay In the borough. It would take,
perhaps, a month to get In readiness
to furnish water.
The committee thought a petition
should be circulated among the people
of the borough so as to show how many
were willing to take and pay for the
Scranton water. It was conclusively
shown, they said, that tho Scranton
company did not Intend to do any more
of the "helping" to tho Dunmore Water
company, but was willing to supply the
residents direct if they so wished.
Mr. Btogan remarked that he thought
the Scrnnton Water company's propo
sitions wero fair and moved that a petl
tlun he circulated. After some discus
sion it was decided to allow the com
mittee appointed full power to act,
and, If the peoplo wished to get up a.
petition, allow them to do so.
Several gilevunces were heard from
property-owners, who stated they had
paid their water taxes and were re
ceiving no water. They wanted coun
cil to act and bald so in very emphatic
language. Councilman Brogan moved
that council adjourn to meet at the
call of the special committee and the
motion was carried.
It was announced late last night by
President George B. Smith, of tho
Dunmore Water company, that ar
rangements had just been completed
with the Scranton Gas and Water
company for the furnUhlng of water
to the borough. He said the water
would be turned into tins borough
mains this morning.
