Try Jordan' one-half minute stews. 111 if RAILROAD MEN ARE FOR SOUND MONEY Lickawavna Employes Have Denoastratioa. a Big OVER FIFTEEN HUNDRED IN LINE Conductor, Brakemen, Engineer, Firemen, Shop Hand and Clerks from this City and Nearby Places Along the Line Join in a Monster Parade in this City-Serenade Ten dered' William ConnellParadera Cheered at Every Turn. Over fifteen hundred Delaware, Lackawanna and Western employes marched Saturday night under the ban ner of sound money and protection. It was the lu.-gest and most magnificent political demonstration ever given in this city by one particular class of workmen. There were delegates from Kingston, Hallstead, Great Bend, Pittston and Stroudsburg, and these with the lie Kluley sound money clubs from the shops, the round house, the offices and those recruited from the rank of the trainmen made up a column that sur prised everybody, for even the man agers of the affair did not expect such u big turnout. Nearly all the clubs wore appropriate uniforms and carried torches or lan terns, while all alonff the line were transparencies declaring in no un hesitating manner that railroad men wanted their pay in 100-eent dollars. The car shops club carried a large device, almost the size of the side of a freight car, upon which were pictures of McKlnley and Hobart and h declara tion thnt Pennsylvania would roll up a majority 500,000 for McKlnley, and that the county ticket would receive a ma jority, comparatively as large. It was gaily decorated with lanterns. The eight men who carried it were given a great ovation all along the route. The procession moved out from the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Plaza at 8 o'clock. First came the Kingston club composed of 500 mem bers, principally cur shop men. Tney wore gold helrrtets and gold-striped capes and carried torches made of American tin. They brought along the Kingston band and a life and drum corps, and also their enthusiasm and between the music and the cheering they made more noise than any club in the line, R. II. Vaughn is president of the club. R. H. Hubble was marshal and Charles F. Swallow was assistant. LOCAL SOUND MONEY CLUB. The Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Engineers' and Firemen's Hound Money club turned out 100 en gineers and firemen, each man wearing his overalls and having a uniform cap and a torch made of McKlnley tin. The caps worn were gold with a black band, bearing the words "Mc Klnley and Hobart,'" in gilt letters. The club was led by the Hallstcad, Delaware, Lackawanna and Western band, of Hallstcad, Pa. Two transpar encies were carried. One had the name of the club on both sides and sketches of an engineer's oil can and torch on one end, and a locomotive bell on the other. The other had a sketch of a large "CuUnn Burner" engine 181 on one side, and on the other the Inscription: "We want 100-cent dollars R. It. Boys," on the ends were the words: "Protec tion," "Prosperity." Tho tranapurep cles were carried by Engineers c. H. Travis, of Moscow, nnd William Dun liar, of this city. Old Glory w.-s car ried in front by Engineer William D. Roberts, of Tobyhannn. Mr. Roberts Is engineer on the "Cannon Ball Ex press" on the Bloomshurg division and he enllvend the boys on their march by his warhoops and war dances. (He's a prominent Red Man.) " The club marched four abreast, head ed by Its oflleers: John R. Troch, president: Edward Blsbing, first vice president; James Duffy, second vice president; James A. 8. McClelland, secretary. The marshals were W. B. Pyne, Jerry B. MePeek, Edward T. Swartz and Moses E. Clifford. The club was handicapped In regard to members. Owing to the rush of busi ness on the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad over half of the members of the club were "out on the road." The committee of arrangements was jonn k. Trocn, rJdward T. Swartz and J. A. McClelland. CONDUCTORS AND BRAKEMEN. The conductors and brakemen fell In behind the round-house people. Ho ratio T. Fellows, select councilman from the Fifteenth ward, was marshal. The delegations from Hallstead, Strouds burg, Pittston and other points along the road fell in with this squad. Next came the clerks from the offices headed by It. T. Rennle. Otto B. Schrlefer, school controller from the Sixteenth ward, was chief aid and Charles Hang assistant. The car shops club, 450 strong, brought up the rear of the line. It was headed by Guth's band nnd offi cered as follows: Chief Marshal, C. C. Stone; aids, Frank McFnrland, E. K. Berry, Fred Babcock, Frank Sweet, George Parott, Roy Legg, George Rob erts, Jr., John Madden. James Conley, Edward R. Conley', Frank Suydam, Douglas Harvle, Robert Eldrldge, Fred Emerson and Frank Glover. The club wore gold caps and capes and carried torches. The line of march was as follows: Forming at the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western depot, then up Lackawan na avenue to Adams, to Spruce, to Jef ferson, to Linden, to Madison, to Mul berry, to Clny. to Pine, to Washington, to Vine, to Wyoming, to Mulberry, to Washington, to Lackawanna, dismis sing at the depot At the residence of James S. Mc- Anulty, corner of Clay avenue and Vine street, where William Connell Is tem porarily stopping while his home Is be ing repaired, the marchers made a stop and tendered the congressional cand'date a serenade. Mr. Connell ap peared upon the lawn and when the ovation had subsided he delivered a short address- in which he referred to the" significance ot railroad employes turning: out in such vast numbers and commended their seal in getting up such a tine demonstration. The marchers were cheered all along the line and they themselves cheered as they passed the residences of Gener al Manager W. F. Hallstcad. Superin tendent (Sarrett liognrt, ex-Master Me chanic Charles Graham, Master Me chanic David Drown, Robert McKennn, B. H. Pratt and others who displayed elaborate Illuminations and decora tions. DEA1ONSTRATI0N AT TAYLOR. Taylor was ablaze with enthusiasm Saturday night. A street puradp nnd a mass nteeting were held, and Repub lican candidates and Republican prin ciples loudly cheered. The Junior Re publican club, of Sercntun, and the First Ward McKlnley club, of Tay lor, were in line, but the most signifi cant feature of the parade was the thousand workingnien, unattached to any club who walked nnd ninde the streets of Taylor re-echo with their cheers as they passed over the line of march. PARADE PASSING TRIBUNE OFFICE. These men did not assemble nt any particular place, they stepped Into the column at all points along the line of march. It was a sort of contagious enthusiasm. At about 8 o'clock the Junior Republicans, of this city, ar rived in Taylor on a special ear, nnd at the school house switch were met by the Union band, of Taylor. The First Ward club, of Taylor, Captain Daniel Williams, headed by the new Taylor band, then joined the party and the march was begun. The first part of the route was through the unnettled district, but when the hill near the Taylor station was reached, and from that point on, the sidewalks were very much dotted with enthusiastic spectators. Neatly all of the marchers wore white Mc Klnley and Hobart caps, and carried lanterns. The Juniors made a fine ap pearance In their uniforms, caps, capes and legging. They had about one hundred members in the line. All along the ruote, which was directly down Main street to the rink the peo ple of Taylor, the plain people in par ticular, showed their sympathy with the demonstration by their cheers. At the rink, which is the largest meeting place in Taylor, the crowd that as sembled Is estimated to have been over 1,000 persons. THE MEETING OPENED. Atorney James Watkins was chair man. Mr. Watkins' home is in Tay lor, and It seems from the cordiality shown him by the audience that his heart also stays at home. In opening the meeting Mr. Watkins referred to the issues of tho campaign in a general way. It was not necessary for him to introduce the first speaker of the eve ning, he merely announced that an address would be given by Assistant District Attorney John M. Harris. Mr. Harris, in his remarks, explained the Intricacies of the monetary system, and showed In plain terms why the gold standard is the only logical money measure. He said that Grover Cleve land is a sound money man. When President Cleveland last week ad dressed the students at Princeton uni versity, he at that time showed his allegiance to gold. Mr. Harris quoted the president's words. "These," ho concluded, "coming from the chief ex ecutive of tho nation, and from the leading Democrat of his party, are a great argument for the present Re publican principals." Major Everett Warren was the prin cipal speaker of the night. In elo quent terms he referred to the history of the Republican party, how It has fostered nil of the great principles that have, made America what she is. How that parity has been the champion of Protection to American Industry, and in this and in other ways acts as a beneflclent father to the worklnsman's Interests. Major Warren was at once logical and convincing. His speech was interrupted many times wllh ap plause. He urged the voters of Tavlor to stand by the county ticket, to elect a Repuldicnn congressman so that the nightmare of sliver shall not be per mitted to haunt the legislative halls. A tribute was also paid to Dr. N. C. Mnckay, the Republican candidate in the Third lesislative district, of which Taylor Is a part. Besides the speakers. John R. Johns was the only other gwntleman on the platform. Wood's Actual Ilusincss College. Scranton, I'a. A school of actual business from tha start. 100 scholarships sold for organization at $15 each.

JONES End Came Last Nifht at 11.20 at His Home on tbs West SiJe. STOMACH TROUBLE WAS THE CAUSE Mr. Jones Was One of tho Uet Known Citizen of Scranton and Had iicen Frequently Honored by His Fellow Citizens with Ollicc-lIi Career ns h Soldier ar.d a Uuincs Man. Came to This Country I'runi Ylnlrs with His Parents iu Hi Boyhood. Hon. D. M. Jones died at 11.20 o'clock last niKht at his home, 138 South Main avenue. Mr. Juries was one of the be.U known men In Scranton. Three weeks a;u he became ill but the sickness at tbut time did not occa sion alarm. Thursday, tvt. 1j. he was compelled to tako to his bed ami Dr. W. I:. Allen waa summoned. Tin- ll!m."w was pronounced nn acute attack of stomach trouble and Mr. Jones iiudu?.'l.v weakened and since Wednesday of Inst week his life was despaired of. For three days past the sufferer lingered within touch of death but his strong physical frame repulsed the attack, until the omnipotent Hund broke nature's barrier. Dr. Allen was at the sick man's bed side almost constantly, but all thnt medical skill could do was of no avail. When death occurred the family were gathered about the bedside. The push ing was free from pain. SKETCH OF D. M. JONES. D. M. Jones' life was an eventful one. Since early manhood he has tak en an active interest In public affairs and that his fellow citizens reposed the greatest of trust in him Is shown by the many honorable public offices, to which he was in quick succession elected. He was born on June "ti, 1S39, in Rhymney, Breckenshlre, South Wales; thus his age at time of death was over 67 years. When he was 12 years of age In 1S51 his parents moved from Wales to America, and tho family immediately took up residence In Scranton. For a few years young Jones worked as a driver boy in the Diamond mine, and a certain progreB siveness which spoke the man in the boy influenced his employers to give him the more congenial position of "pump engineer." Impatient of the few opportunltea presented In underground work, Mr. Jones secured employment as an Iron worker under tbe Delaware, Lacka wanna and Western company. Then came the great gold mining craze and In ISr.S Mr. Jones Joined the vast army of fortune seekers who were bound for the western Eldorado. Mr. Jones Invested In the mines of Colorado and through natural shrewdness and busi ness ability in a few years amassed a nice fortune. BECAME A SOLDIER. News of the firing on Sumter In 1SC1 kindled the patriotic nature of the men and, leaving behind him the oppor tunities for further riches he returned to the east and Joined one of the regi ments of Pennsylvania volunteers. He served in many of the hard fought battles of the war nnd at the fall of Richmond while the Union forces were quenching the last fires of the rebellion. Mr. Jones received a bullet wound In the left li'sr. The member was, two days afterward, amputated by the army surgeons. Aft"r this injury Air. Jones was honorably discharged from the army and he returned to Scranton. For two years he worked ns night watchman at the Second National hf.nk and for a short time he was a student ut Gardner's business college, which Is well known to the older residents of the city. In IMiK Mr. Jones was elected by the Republicans as aldermen from the Fourth ward to serve In mayor's pnurt during the regime of Judcre Dana. This was ills first public office and he was re-elected by an almost unanimous vote, only four being polled against him. In the fall of 1878 Mr. Jones was elect ed to the state legislature from the First Legislative district. As a legis lator he worked hard for tbe new Lackawanna county bill and in other ways distinguished hiniHclf. When he left the legislative halls Mr. Junes was appointed deputy city treasurer under Reese T. 'Evans, but the last named gen tleman was III during his entire term of otlice nnd the duties were taken care r,f by the deputy. ELECTED CITY TREASURER. So well did ho win popular confidence dining this period of novice that on Feb. ,'i. 1SJII. ho was nomine led by the Republicans as their candidate for city treasurer. Joseph A. Scranton made the nominating speech. There was no opposition. Mr. Jcmen was elected by a handsome majority. He cerved the term three years and nt its conclu sion he was nominated by the Citizens' party to oppose Hon. T. V. Powderly of the Lnbor-Oreenbuck party for the offce of mayor of Scranton. This mem orable fight vaB won by Mr. Powderly. For the next ten years Air. Jones was a real estate agent. ' In 1SU0 he was appointed postmaster by President Harrison. The exciting events which attached themselves to his appointment are well remembered. D. W. Connolly was removed and Mr. Jones appointed and the matter creat ed not only local but also national in terest, and was tho subject of dis cussion In the leading American Journ als. Mr. Jones bore the distinction of being the first postmaster appointed In the United States for the class of cities to. which Scranton belongs. When President Cleveland was elected the office of postmaster was given to Frank M. Vandllng, the present in cumbent. Space will not permit of a further mention of the interesting life. Mr. Jones was always In the front, and as a man was known for his hon esty and friendliness when friends were needed. Up to the time of hi death, Mr. Jones was president of the Cambrian Insurance company, treas urer of tho West Side Hospital asso ciation, director of the West Side bank, president and stockholder in two coal mining companies, with head quarters In Schuvikill county, and he at times was president of the West Side board of trade, and president of the Lackawanna Agricultural society. He was a i.'an of thrift and during his life amassed a fortune. The Burvivitts family Is: llrs. Jones. EilKi'.r, Helen, Dorothy and Ethel Jones.

William was In his liquor and for several days had been grow ing deeper and deeper in It. Satur day night, fearing the Jim-jams he sought out Desk Sergeant Delter and asked to be locked up. The sergeant accomodated him. In the morning his friends came around, and seeing his condition, asked the mayor to keep him locked up for a while. The may or gave him ten days.
