In vitations will be sent out by Colonel Ripple toull the Republican clubsof the city to come to tin; Frothlngham and hear the speakers. Major T. F. Penman made a motion that the committee be requested to arrange ' If practicable an overflow meeting. There will undoubtedly lie more applying for admission than the theatre can hold, and it was suggested that, perhaps, the speakers might come out in the open air. say on the steps of the court house, or the Frothinghnm portico. There will be no tickets needed to secure ntimission 10 me meet ing: all that n person need do Is go early and uvohl the rush.

II II II ' School Controller George Mitchell will in a short time remove from the First ward, thus causing a vacancy In the school board. Mr. Mitchell has been such a good and faithful representative that none but a first -class man should be appointed to fill his place. Such a man is Major J. H.

But Every Earnest Republican Who ( nn Ought to Go to Canton. The local free silver organ Intimates thnt the only way to get a crowd to ge to Canton from this community is to furnish free tickets. Well, there will be no free tickets for the excursion which will leave Scrunton for Canton next Friday evening; and It remains to be seen whether there Is enough en thusiasm among the Republicans of Scranton at $6.75 apiece to supply a representative attendance. A good way to reply to the Jibe of the TinS s Is for every earnest Republican to arrange to make the trip. It will be a trip worth taking.

Hefore nightfall many thousand wear ers of the red utul white, the convention colors, will be everywhere.

Last night were held the Until com mittee meetings uml rehearsals and to day the local Endoivvorers will lie busy welcoming and gruidlng the squads of the incoming host until curly tomorrow morning. Scranton has prepared Itself for ex tending a hearty welcome and giving royal entertainment to the visitors to this tenth annual convention. The bus iness buildings are bedecked in masses of color, the tluK". the bunting und the banners silently bidding "enter" and Haunting and waving with the seeming knowledge that the executive officers and the coniinitti'i'S will do the rest. There Is not a block In the commercial section that does not contain several decorated buildings, while along the residence streets there Is here and there a Hug or a piece of red and wiiite bunt ing, each a silent but forceful wel comer. The churches wherein will be contained the hetnlquutters of county lel"gutior.s are, without exception, ela borately trimmed. The decorating, however, has been most generously displayed in the three places of meeting. The interior of each has been beuutltloil by u florist, and the flowers, green growth, Hags und bunt ing will with tin? already inviting In teriors extend a rare cheer to the dele gates. PRESIDENT irCTiOflY ARRIVES. The Calvary uml Plymouth church sections of the general reception com mittee nnd the four cuptuins and nearly a score of lieutenants marched from the Young Men's Christian Association building shortly before V o'clock last night and mot Rev. Or. J. T. McCrory, the state president: Secretary Ueorge MeOoimld. of Altoonn. and about fif teen delegates from the western part of the state, who arrived together on the y.o'i lielawure ami Hudson train. There were about thirty-five or forty white cupped young moil and women In the receiving party nnd they sang the otil clal reception song, which is reproduced in another column, as the state otllcers ami delegates alighted from the train. Or. McCrory and Secretary McDon ald were escorted to the Hotel Jermyn, headquarters of tli state officers, while the delegates were taken to the Penn Avenue Ituptlst church. These were the onlv delegates formally welcomed lust night. Today, however, will be the big day for receiving the delegates. At first thought It would seem almost impos sible to meet 4,0oo strangers within fourteen or sixteen hours, guide them, according to counties, to headquarters already provided for them, register their names, equip them with budges and programmes and then show them tn the private houses or hotels where quarters have 1oen engaged. Itut that same will be dime and without confus ion, too. A FERFECT OIIOANIZATION.

The color of the car pets, cushions, etc.. is in harmony with the general scheme of decoration. They were furnished by Slebecker & Watkins. A new slate roof has been placed on the church and the grounds about the building have been Improved by an iron fence, the relaying of the walks and resodlng of the lawn. The im provements are due largely to the en ergy of the pastor, the total cost of which were about $l,Suo. On Sunday the sermon in the morn ing was delivered by Rev. J. J. Mess nier, of Newark, N. J., presiding elder of the Philadelphia district, and in the evening by Rev. A. F. Strueter, D. D., of New York. FIRE IN A PLANING MILL. Timely Discovery Prevents What Might Have llecu a Cosily llluzc. Last night's Tire, which occasioned an alarm from box 74 at 10.30 o'clock, was in the Peck Lumber company's plun Ing mUl, on East Market street. " The mill was working late last night and It is supposed that u spark from an emery wheel dropped through a crack In the Hour and set lire to the shavings beneath. It smoldered until after the men had left and soon after broke out In a blaze. Luckily it was discovered before much headway was gained and was extinguished with the chemical extinguishers carried by the Liberty Hose company. The damage wus slight. ARRESTED FOR BIGAMY.

WHEN WILL THAT PAVEMENT BE LAID Mulberry Street Residents Want Many Things Incorporated la Ordinance. ALL OF WHICH MEANS GREAT DELAY There Ts No LTItlihood from Present Indications That Mulberry Street Will Be Paved This YearSome of the Things That the Property Owners Are Aking For with Itefer ence to the Preliminaries There Is little likelihood of Mulberry street being paved this winter. The property holders, who ure taking an In terest in the puve such as no set of property holders ever before evinced In uny Improvement, have determined up on so many and such important changes in the plans submitted by the city engineer that the cold weather will be here before the necessary legisla tion can be passed and this will pre clude the possibility of starting the work before springtime. A committee consisting of George H. JessUp and E. 'A. Netting, acting for the property holders, waited on City Clerk Luvelle yesterday for the pur pose of learning something as to the method of procedure in securing the amendments they have in mind. First of all, they propose, at Thursday night's meeting of common council, to Introduce the necessary legislation, for the narrowing of the entire roadway from Mifllin avenue to Tuylor avenue. CHANGE OF PLAN. A resolution will, also, most likely be introduced, directing the city clerk to refrain from advertising the schedule of assessments. This Is with a view of changing the entire plan of assessing. At present the assessment Is made ac cording to the foot front rule, the cost of the whole street being divided among the property holders according to the number of feet of property they have abuttltng on the street. It Is now proposed to assess each block sep arately. . Property holders who have street car (racks In front of their houses feel thut they are entitled to the full benefit of the rebate which comes from the Trac tion company paying for the paving be tween the lulls, and are not willing to share this benefit with people on other blocks who have not the "annoyance" of street cars and street car tracks. Another reason Is that the owners of corner lots, who have paid for paving on one side of their properties and con tributed to the paving of the street In tersection, believe they should not be called upon to help pay for other street Intersections and are consequently making a vigorous kick, which will have to be heeded. IT WILL BE TOO LATE. Ry the time all these matters are set tled upon and Incorporated In the specl tlcutlons and the amended ordinance goes through the gauntlet of councils the season for laying concrete will doubtlessly be passed and the paving will have to go over until spring. Another feature of this paving con tract Is that church properties have not been exempted from the assessment. In making out the schedule, City Engineer Phillips wus in doubt us to the meaning or the recent supreme court decision on tills matter and asked an opinion from City Solicitor Torrey. Mr. Torrey stated the supreme court liad ruled that church property was only exempt from regular taxation and was liable, like any oilier property, lor assessments for special improvements such as paving, grading, sewering nnd the like. The city engi neer thereupon included the church property with the others. Inasmuch as the city has ull along assumed the pay ment for paving nnd like Improvements tn front of church property, it will, it is expected, make no exception in this instance. . ! The weather begins to emphasize the need of Fall Headwear. That Klves us a chance to say therP Isn't a store In this city that provides so fully for all sorts of real want.
