An unusual and sad fatal accident
hapiMMied at the South Steel works at
8 o'clock yesterday morning. Pat
rick tt. Ryan, who was the foreman
at the furnaces, an active, strong- and,
exceedlnRly -careful and watchful man,

naces. The locomotive came- along;
quite rapidly and he saw it, but when
he started to walk to one side and let
It pass, his foot tripped against the-
rail and he fell. The engineer did ni
best to avoid striking Mr. Ryan, and
used all the appliances at his com
mand, but the engine run upon the pros
trate form and passed entirely over his
h'KS at the knees. The accident was
witnessed by over a score of workmen.
Dr. J. A. Manley. of Plttston avenue,
was summoned and arrived soon and
ordered that the hospital ambulance be
summoned. The surgeons at the hos
pital were forced to perform amputa
tion. The limbs were almost severed,
being hi Id together by only a few
Khreds of tlstme. The shock was so
great and the loss of blood so profuse
that Kyan did not rally, and he died
a few minutes before 11 o'clock. Un
dertaker T. V. McDonough removed the
remains to the late home at J32 South
Wyoming avenue, on the corner of
Maple street, in the afternoon.

DO NOT WANT A CLASH.
Knights Tcmplnr Ask for the l ie of tho
Streets on May 20.
The Knights , Templar parade and
Barnum's circus parade are both sched
uled for 10 o'clock a. m. May 26. This
fact occurred to the local committee of
Arrangements for the Templar demon
stration nnd yesterday Major T. F.
l'enman watted on Mayor Bnlley and
asked for a permit for the exclusive use
of the streets during the hours of 10 and
12 o'clock on that morning. He ex
plained to the mayor that there Is no
desire to prevent a counter-attraction
or anything of that kind, but simply
to avoid a clash.
The mayor and Secretary Beamish
hunted through the law but could find
nothing: definite relating to the sub
ject so the matter was referred to City
Solicitor Torrey. If the law does not
cover the ground it Is the Intention of
the mayor to have the Interested
parties come together and amicably
adjust the matter. It Is possible that
one of the parades will start at 10
o'clock and the other at 12 o'clock.
This day promises to be one of the
biggest in the history of the city as in
addition to the two monster parades
the hanging of Merol) Is scheduled for
that day. .
DIFFERENCE OF OPINION.
Clash Between Street Commissioner and
Chief of Police.
There was a clash in the city hall
yesterday between the departments of
street commissioner and chief of police
over a question of duties. The firm of
Miller & Brandow, of Penn avenue and
Center street, complained to Mayor
Bailey that a neighboring- merchant
had almost blocked the ' entrance to
their side door with empty crates, boxes
and the like and as these obstructions
were on the sidewalk they asked to
have them removed.
The mayor referred the complaint to
the street commissioner, but he re
turned It with the explanation that
Bueh matters belonged to the polio-.'
department. It was then referred to
Chief Simpson, but he handed It back
suylng that It belonged to the street
commissioner department. To settle1
the nintter once and for all the mayor
sent the case to City Solicitor Torrey
with a request for a written opinion
defining, the respective duties of tho
two departments regarding; street ob
struction. POLLUTING A STREAM.
Sewors Are Again Connected with Sander

Parties In Green Ridge, through
whose properties Sanderson's creek
courses, have again started a crusade
against the pollution of that stream.
Some years ago, before sewers were so
generally constructed In that portion
of the city a great number of property
owners had their sewage emptied Into
the creek. As this was clearly against
the law the board of health put a stop
to It, and as a result many sewers were

effectively nnd finally abated but this
proved to be A delusion for yesterday

parties living above Delaware street
who have built houses and connected
their sewers with the stream. Sanitary
Officer Burke will go to the scene this
morning and compel these property
holders to disconnect their sewers.

OWNER WAS CONGRATULATED.
, John Jermyn. the owner of the struc

throughout the evening. He was kept
busy shaking hands with hundreds
who complimented him on tne posses
skm of the $500,000 structure and his
nerve in making the great outlay.
Apparently no person was more pleased
with the hotel than was Mr. Jermyn
hirhself. and to those who remarked
that his was a rather risky venture,
he replied that the risk was his and he
had no fears as to the result.

however seems deserved by Mr. God

has given to Scranton a splendid hotel
which In its equipment, cuisine and fur
nishings will compare favorably with
what are generally designated first
class houses in the largest cities of the
The magnitude of the property and
large amount of money required to
maintain it may be Inferred from the
fact that Its employes number over a
hundred, that It has 250 guest rooms
which will accommodate double that
number of patrons and that It Is the
only hotel property of Its kind In the
state, excepting Philadelphia and Pitts
burg. Other Pennsylvania cities of the
same, or nearly of the same, size as
Scranton possess what are advertised
to be modernly constructed and mod
ernly arranged hotels, but they are no
more to be compared with the Hotel
Jermyn than to the biggest, best and
most elegantly furnished houses of
The air of luxurious comfort and elbow-room
which exists throughout the
building Is Impressed upon one when
first entering from Wyoming avenue or
Spruce street. From the doorway of
the former entrance to almost the Oak
ford court side of the structure Is a
long wide corridor, which opens to
ward Bpruce street Into a lobby much
larger than the entire ground floor
space of the average-sized mansion. In
tho corridor Is the cigar and news
stand and a window opening Into the
Postal Telegraph company offices. The
office and cashier's desk are situated
In the lobby next to the corridor, and
distributed about this roomy lobby
spnee are leather finished lounging
chairs and settees. At the Spruce
street or ladles' entrance Is a small
ladies' reception room.
BAR AND CAFE.
Across the corridor from the lobby
nre the reading room, the bar and the
billiard room and cafe. The last two
npartments are connected. Mahogany
has been used In all the woodwork of
the bar and cabinet, and beneath the
latter and running nearly Its entire
length are cold-storage compartments
traversed by cold air pipes. The gener
al style of the bar suggests unusual
richness and stability.
Inspection of the second floor, which
contains the dining room and pallors,
as well as a number of sleeping rooms,
gives ono an Impression of eleanco
even greater than Is shown on the low
er floor. The dinning room furniture Is
of mahogany polish; Its silverware Is
of exclusive and artistic design, and
the whole apartment Indicates easo and
luxury, especially when Illuminated by
the hundreds of Incandescent HhU
which dot the celling and pillows.
Opening from the dining room and on
the Spruce street side is a late-breakfast
and private dining room, an apart
ment containing four small and one
large table and which may be used
An ottomnn or Turkish parlor which
will be used for lounging and smok
ing, is located next the breakfast room.
Its oriental carpet, rich and heavy
draperies, dense cushioned furni
ture are thoroughly In harmony
throughout. Next this room Is the
ladles' parlor, . the color effect of
which Is ecru, gold and white. Adjoin
ing is the "star," or bridal, chamber,
furnished luxuriously and containing a
ten-piece set of birds-eye maple furni
ture. The remaining space on this
floor Is occupied by sleeping rooms.
From the second floor to the seventh,
Inclusive, are suites of three rooms each
at the Spruce street and Wyoming ave
nue corner. Each suite is reached by
a private hallway, which leads to a
large parlor, on either side of which
is a bedroom' with baths.
While some of the bedrooms are more
elaborately furnished than others, each
apartment shown an elegance and com
pleteness which features the equipment
of tne whole establishment Brass
bedsteads are used In each room, and
In the lower priced rooms are hair
mattresses of the same first -class qual

priced apartments. Excepting the brass
bedsteads, the furniture of the bed
rooms is of mahogony-poliah through
out the hotel and nearly every room
possesses one or more novelty pieces.
For the 250 bedrooms there are 100 pri

One of the most important of the
many features which make the interior
so manltlcent are the carpets, window
hangings, draperies, etc., which were
supplied by Williams A McAnulty.
Only Wllton and velvet carpets of
splendid quality are used. These and
the draperies justify special mention.
In the dining room is a heavy Wilton
of Moorish design In which terra
rotta Is the prevailing color, harmonis
ing with the window draperies of hand
some material. The breakfast room Is
laid with a Wllton of empire design
and green and ecru in color. In the
Turkish room, the lounging and smok

monious oriental combination of red
and brown and blending tints. A green
and ecru carpet of empire design la
laid In the ladieB' parlor and the
"star." or bridal chamber. Wiltons
and velvets have been used In all the
bedrooms where the appropriate de
signs and magnificent colorings of car
pets and draperies present an artistic
and harmonious effect. In each of the
corridors Is laid a red Wilton of ori

of carpeting are contained In the hotel
and these with the rich and tasteful dra
peries reflect great credit on Williams

CONCERT AT A. M. E. CHURCH.
Worthy Object l.aet Might Whleh Was
A concert to help raise funds to erect
a new church was held In Howard
Place African Methodist Episcopal
church last evening. A good sized sum
was realized and the programme was
sufficient to please everybody If the
admission price had been twice 25
cents. Rev. C. A. McGee, the pastor,
was highly gratified.
Part first consisted of selections by
the little folks and It ended with a
good night march and doll drill by six
little girls In their night robes, with
Anna May Stackhouse, a little tot, as
captain. Part second was rendered by
the young men and ladles of the
church. Mrs. Sadie J. Morton recited

0. BEDFORD FOR CHIEF
Tart Is the Latest Production of the
REASON THAT HE IS TAKEN IT
The Only Thing Needed to Complete the
Story Is Coaflraiatloa by the) Maor
aad That Ue Wltholda-Says
It Is Idle Rumor,
Andrew P. Bedford for chief of po
lice. That's the latest prediction of
the political prophets.
"It's Just this way," said one of the
prop'iets In conversation with a Trib
une reporter yesterday. "You know
Mayor Bailey wanted to appoint Frank
Robling to the position of chief of po
lice, and he would do it yet If his po
litical friends would stop bullying him.
He thinks Robling would make a very
good chief, and, besides, the appoint
ment would please his friends, the Rob
insons and others. At the same time it
would highly displease a very large and
powerful contingent of his friends and
he cannot afford to risk, at the begin
ning of his administration, the compli
cations that would ensue with Robling
at the head of the police department.
"Joe Taylor Is a comparative stran
ger to him, but has been most warmly
endorsed by a large number of the
party leaders, and if the mayor had
announced his appointments Monday.
I think Taylor would have been landed
In the office of chief. Unfortunately,
for that gentleman, nervous prostra
tion attacked the mayor and he was
too ill to decide upon his appointments
for Monday. That gave the opponents
of Taylor an opportunity to work and
they took advantage of it. Now It
looks as if Taylor will suffer the same
fate as Robling and be dropped.
"That will make a new man neces
sary, and that man will be Andrew
Plnkerton Bedford. He Is not anxious
for the office, for it's not exactly In his
line, tut he's a warm friend of Mayor
Bailey, and If his acceptance of the
office would let the mayor out of a
tight place, I am sure that he would
be willing to don the blue. I under
stand that the thing has been decided
upon and that the office of chief will be
tendered to Mr. Bedford and that he
So much for the prophet.
A Tribune reporter interviewed May
or Bailey last night as to the likeli
hood of Mr. Bedford being tendered the
office of chief.
"No one has been decided upon as yet
for that position," was the way the
mayor answered the Interrogation.
When told of the story that was In
circulation concerning Mr. Bedford, he
said that It was merely Idle rumor, and
had no foundation In fact. The mayor
said he intended to go to New York
today and will remain there until Mon
day. He goes for a rest and on his re
turn will take up for consideration the
matter of making appointments.
Street Commissioner Kinsley Was Kept
Busy Fixing Streets Yesterday.
There was a cave-In on Mulberry
street In the neighborhood of Harrison
avenue yesterday morning sometime
before daylight, whleh caused a circu
lar depression, twenty feet In diameter.
Street Commissioner Kinsley Is at a
loss to explain what caused the cave
In, but thinks it resulted from a break
in the sewer. He will excavate today
to ascertain, whether It Is the Bewer or
whether it Is caused by a mine settling.
Complaint was also made yesterday
of two dangerous holes In Washburn
street between Main avenue and the
Oxford breaker. These will also be at
tended to today.
A broken water main on Railroad
street near the corner of Luzerne
caused a sinking of the surface which
kept the gas and water company's men
and one of the street commissioner's
gangs busy for a good part of the
Another cave-in was reported from
