IT WAS AN AGREEABLE SURPRISE Principal Ae All Finished Artist and the ChoroiofTnirty. five Voice is One of the Best Heard in Scran ton Tor Some TimeEntcrtnin meat by Vaudeville Company at Academy of .Haste. An agreeable surprise was sprung on the city's music-lover and theater-goers last night by the International Grand Opera company, which sang "Lucy of Lammermoor" in the Froth Ingham theater. Scranton has been so often fooled by so-called grand opera that last night's production proved a sort of agreeable disappointment to the small, but select, and much pleased audience. It Is probable that this af ternoon's "The Bohemian Girl" and to- 7V MTRTHA FRENCH. night's "The Troubadour" (11 Trnva tore) will be generously attended; cer tainly the merit of the company de serves and will probably get a patron age better than that of last nlsht. The cast of "Lucy of Lammermoor" Included but seven principals, each a pleasing artiste vocally and histor ically. This Is especially true of Myrtha French as Lucv Ashton, and Warwick Unynor ns Henry Ashton. Miss French displayed a soprano voice of such pronounced purity of tone that it may bo honestly described ns being a degree above extraordinary. She, too, is an actress of no little proficiency. Mr. Gaynor's baritone was of peculiar richness and fully merited the frequent applause bestowed upon it. He showed himself well schooled in technique. Tin other principals were Thomas Evann Greene as Edgar of Havcnswood. Eth an Allen as Hide the Bent, Kudolf Hu dolfl as Arthur, W. A. Warring us Norman and Fanny Gonzales us Alice. An orchestra of ten pieces, under the direction of Emerico Minn-ale, is at tached to the company. The chorus embraces about thirty-live voices, not people, the thlrty-tlve evidently hav ing been selected for their vocal rath er than physical proficiency. The chorus deserves a big share of the fa vorable criticism due the whole. In "The Bohemian Girl" Catherine Eland will sine the role of Arllne and tonight Ma l ie Senta will be heard ns Leonora. Miss French will not appear in cither cast. GOOD VAUDEVILLE SHOW. The Clara Wieland Vaudeville com pany entertained a larte uudience at the Acudetny of Music lust night. The most striking features of the perform ance were the characterizations of Clara Wieland and the "Kolosthenos" studies of Zaeo, "Europe's greatest sen sation." Miss Wieland Is a very versa tile young woman, and her efforts last night were received with great favor. Zueo's studies were beautified with electrical effects. They were "Aurora, Kays of Northern Light," "Grammar of Arnament," "Metomorphosis, birth, life and transition of the butterlly," "Angelic Visions, Morning Glory, De veloping Floral Wreath," the "Crys-Doe-You Farfolla." No prettier effects were ever seen In this city than were Introduced by Zaeo. Other very entertaining features of the performance were the ucrobatlc work of the Davenport Brothers, mim icry of Pltrot, songs and acrobatic dancing of Misses Dane and Hahn nnd sllght-of-hand performance of Horace Goldln. The performance will be re peated this afternoon and evening. ECHO OP PHILADELPHIA FAILURE. Executions Filed ' Here Yesterday Against Rosa Orrson. Gerson's millinery store at 413 Lacka wanna avenue, was closed by the sher iff yesterday afternoon on two execu tions amounting to $5,995.25. There is a possibility however that there will be no sale and that the store will be opened within a few days as there Is an apparent irregularity in the clos ing. The executions are both issued against Kosa Gerson, one judgment for 12,000 being held by Myer Gerson, and the other for $3,995.25 being held by S. Abeles & Co., of Philadelphia. Rosa Gerson Is the owner of thp Philadel phia store which failed Wednesday. The Scranton branch Is owned by her husband. Isaac Gerson. The Scranton store it is claimed cannot be attached for the debts of the Philadelphia house, and consequently. It Is asserted, the executions will not stand. The closing of the Scranton store In entirely due to the failure of the main store In Philadelphia, the local manag er stated yesterday. The local concern has been doing a big business and its affairs are In excellent shape. Julius Traugatt. the Scranton manager, went to Philadelphia at noon yesterday and it is expected that on his return todny or Monday everything will be righted. When Deputy Sheriff T. J. Price closed the store yesterday there was a great surprise among the employes. They were told however not to worry over their positions as they would ail be summoned to come back to their places In a few days. The failure of the Philadelphia house Is attributed to a disastrous fire last spring and the miserable fall trade. Last night the following enme by Vnlted Press concerning the Philadel phia failure: Philadelphia. Nov. 2n. Mrs. Rosa Or son, who conducts a big general store at Forty-eighth street, assigned today. Mrs. erson confessed Judgments to the amount of $89,044. The full extent of the liabilities or the value of assets is not known. It was said today that every one would be paid in full, as the assets were In excess of She liabilities. The failure was caused by the general depression in business during the last few months, ,wl was owing directly to the action of sev eral New York llrms in forcing settle ments. AN IMPORTANT DECISION. Rendered by Judge Edwards at WilkeHnrrc in Rockafcllow Case. Judge Edwards, presiding specially nt Wllkes-Barre, yesterday handed down an Important decision in the case of ex-Banker F. V. Kockafelluw. who has Just served two year In the east ern penitentiary for embezzlement. I'pon his release several of the remain ing depositors had him arrested on the sama charge. When the case came to trial, John T. Lenahan, attorney for the defense, moved to quash the Indict ments on the ground that as he had al ready been tried nnd convicted for this offense he could, not be convicted in jeopardy the second time. Judge Ed wards decided In favor of Mr. Lena han'B contention and ordered the bank er to be released. ' If this decision stands. Rockafellow cannot be prosecuted by any of the re maining depositors of whom It is al leged he received deposits after he knew he was Insolvent. The case will be taken to the Superior court. STOLE AN ALDERMAN'S COAT. Furniture Store or Alderman Slorr Entered by Kneuk Thieves. Three thieves went Into the furni ture store of Alderman Christian Storr on Cedar avenue yesterday afternoon and made away with the alderman's new overcoat and the clock. One of them nut the clock under his coat and another carried the coat under his arm. There happened to be no one In the store at the time. When they got out on the street, a man who saw them going in and from their looks did not think they were up to any good purpose, followed them and succeeded In getting the coat away from the thief who had It. They ran as fust as they could toward the Orchard grounds, where they were cap tured by Patrolmen Schmidt and Neuls, with the clock still In their posses sion.' ' They are now In the South Side po lice station and will be given a hear ing this morning by Alderman Dono vun. They refused to give their names. THE CONSOLIDATED LOAN City Treasurer C. G. Boland Notifies the Eond.Holders That Interest Will Cease oo December I. City Treasurer C. G. Boland yester day sunt out letters to the holders of the $100,000 worth of bonds which fall due on Doc. 1, notifying tnem that in terest ceases on that, date and advis ing them to forward them to his office for redemption. The bonds bear C per cent, and were issued In 3870 under the title of "the consolidated loan," which name was given the Issue by reason of the fact that It wan made to clear up an aggre gation of debts, some of the debt be ing bonds previously Issued, some of It being to take up the floating debt, and some of it to provide for expenditures that had been made for Improvements. The loan was Moated In rhlladelphla through the Instrumentality of Georgo Sandeison, sr., who was then chair man of the city commlsslgners, a body holding about the same relative posi tion In municipal government as Is oc cupied now by select council, over which George Sanderson, Jr., son of the senior George, now presides. It proved to be a very expensive loan to the city, the simple Interest Itself nmountlng to $20,000, more than the principal, and the loan nil In all will on Dec. 1 mean an expenditure of $250,000. During the past decade the sinking fund commissioners have kept the re demption of this big loan constantly in sight, and as a consequence the issue will be taken up, without the necessity of borrowing money or of even selling the two lots of city bonds of other Is sues which the commission bought for the benefit of the fund. .It means the blotting out of nn nnnual debt of $0,000. The fund hnd about $S2.oilO in cash to its credit nt the beginning of the pres ent fiscal year. To make up the $100,000 before Deo. 1 It was necessary that enough of the 189fi taxes should be collected to realize $18,000 on a three-mill percentage, three mills being the amount set aside for the sinking fund out of the general levy of thirteen and six-tenth mills. This balance has already been real ized and there Is a snug sum to spare. By the time nil the taxes are in there will be a good sized nucleus for anoth er sinking fund. Next Wednesday Is the last day on which taxes will be re ceived without penalty. TWO FARCE COMEDIES. They Will Ho Produced by St. rat rick's I.ndicH 1. 1'. H. r.

GOOD MARKET CLOSE AT HAND It is Bituminous Coal of a Character Suitable for ' Coking - 1'nited States Geological Survey Has l)em onsttnted That It is the Only Avail able Coal Property in That Region. Those Interested in the Enterprise. Scranton business men nre well known for their enterprise, but few of them as yet have become Interested In anything so far from home as New Mexico. For two years past, develop ment work has been going on at . .ilte Oaks, New Mexico, by means of dia mond drills and outcrop provings und the entire coal basin, comprising sever al thousand acres has been secured. The work was first begun under Charles B. Eddy, of the town of Eddy. New Mexico, who discovered the coal basin and made his Investigations with the assistance and advice of a number of prominent business men of Scranton, among them C. D. Simpson. William Connell, Governor Watrcs and W. T. Smith. From those engaged In the develop ment work It Is learned that the coal veins nre from rive to seven feet thick, of a good quality of bituminous coal, suitable for coking. A condition that will be appreciated is the advuntage of a market with no competitor within four hundred miles. At El Paso, Tex., the main smelting point in thnt section, the lead and sil ver smelters use a large quantity of coke, as also at the reducing works in Mexico and Arizona. lilchard C. Hills, a well known geolo gist of Denver. Col., has directed the prospecting and proving of the field, aided by the advice of J. C. Osgood, president of the Colorado Fuel and Iron company, who Is also one of the heavi est stockholders In the enterprise. Some years ago the United States geological survey had a corps of men In this Held nnd outlined its limits, proving also that no other coal lands will be found within many miles owing to great disturbances In the geological strata. It Is estimnted that the coal will be Bold at a profit of at least $1X0 per ton. so the enterprise Is likely to prove ex tremely prolltable. besides being the nearest approach to a natural monop oly of any coal region In the United States. , MEETING OF THE POOR BOARD. .Mrs. Thorpe and Children to Uc Scut Hack to Euglnnd. A short meeting of the poor board was held yesterday nt which a number of applications for relief were heard. Mrs. Ruth Bragg, who resides on South Main avenue.

During the examination Mrs. Bragg was subjected to, it was developed that her husband deserted her at Edwards dale where they had resided for years. A month after she was deserted she came to this city. Dr. Pnlne was di rected to secure an order of removal and have Mrs. Bragg nnd her children returned to Edwardsdnle, as they are chnrges on that poor district. Dr. Paine called the attention of the board to the case of Mrs. Thorpe and her rive children of the West Side, who applied to him for aid. Five months ago her husband deserted her at Liver pool, Englund, and she at once sold her household effects and came to this country with her children. The fam ily In not self-supporting and the sec retary and Dr. Paine were Instructed to take steps to have the Thorpes sent back to England. John Mears, a blind boy w ho resides at MS Beech street.

Mrs Kate Grieves, whose husband Is In Jail serving a term of Imprisonment for uhooting Dr. Newton, enme before the board with her two children and was granted relief. The attention of the board was called to the case of the Montgomery chil dren, whose parents are now in prison.
