The last Issue of tho Boston Homo Journal, a Saturday evening paper of high standing, contains a full page likeness of Rev. Dr. Joseph K. Dixon and quite an extended notice of his past and present work as preacher and lecturer. It frays about his work In Scranton. "His next pastorate was at Scranton. Pa., where he occupied tho pulpit of the Penn Avenuo Baptist church. In 1S9J Bucknell university conferred upon him tho degree of D. D. Of late he has become known as a lecturer, his fame extending both east and west. He has been called upon to deliver special addresses before na tional and state organizations, and has been also occupied In bi-monthly cor respondence tor the Examiner, New York, anc the Watchman, Boston. In the pulpit, on the platform, ami In his wi Kings as well, Rev. Mr. Dixon Is seen to have a command of diction at once forceful and elegant. Not only, however, is he a talker of rare power; he possesses unusual executive ability and a command of practical detail that has been shown In all his pastorates. This executive power has been of vast use since he has settled in Boston, for this summer the people of tho War ren Avenue church have determined to make radical Improvements in tho fur nishing and decoration of their church, and In many of the arrangements tho excellent taste as well as tho practical good sense of the pastor have been shown. Rev. Mr. Dixon la taking a personal interest in the smallest de tail of the renovations, which are to be at once thorough and artistic. It Is his Intention to have the new War ren Avenue Baptist church as attract ive as is possible and still have it com patible with the uses of a house of worship."

A few Democrats also dropped in to shake hands with tho next governor of Pennsylvania, Ho impressed those who met him last night as one who can be safely trusted to wisely administer tho affairs of this great commonwealth.

It was too late to get up anything in tin win of a formal demonstration.

Is On the Ground and Ready to Be Put in Place. A flag-polo which will extend 110 feet above tho ground Is waiting to be put in position at the High schoel build ing, corner of Washington avenuo and Vino street. The pole wns secured after a long period, during which Its presenco there was advocated by tha board of control. Much difficulty was experienced In finding a pole suitable to grace such a handsome property. At one tlmo Con troller Gibbons advocated a steel pole and the purchase of one was seriously contemplated. As many as two spe- nlnl orttnmlHppn wpro flnnnlnteri in in. I V8tlgate the cost of the pole, of wood or steel, and twlco tho matter was re ferred to regular committees until tho project beenmo a standing enut-c for Joking and bantering whenover It was mentioned. The high nnd training school com mittee flnnlly hnd the matter In charge. Mr. May, controller of tho Ninth ward, who generally accomplishes what ho undertakes, agreed to llnd a suitable pole nnd his offer was accepted. Ho found two trees nt Pleasant Mount from which tho pole wns made. The two pieces were Bhaped nnd spliced and aro rendy to bo raised. Delay hns been experienced In put ting the polo in place on account of tho surfneo rock In tho corner of the school ynrd wherp tho polo will bo sta tioned. It will have to be drilled out. Into the drilled hole will bo set two pieces of timber bolted to and extend ing above a third piece. The polo will bo bolted to tho two extensions. Some reremony will probably attend tho first raising of a flag, but that Is something which haB not been definitely decided upon. TROUBLE IS ALL OVER. Satisfactory Arrangement Between Cadden and His Men. A satisfactory settlement of the trouble between Contractor M. A. fnd den and his men wns arranged yes terday hy J M. Knowlton, business agent of tho Carpenters' union nnd work went on as usual yesterday on the building on Noith Washington avenuo. Henceforth Mr, Cadden will pay his employes on tho fifth nnd twentieth of each month. Sir, Cadden said yesterdnv that his men had not demanded their pay from him before they struck or It would have been given to them. Ho hns al ways employed union hands 'd In tends to continue to do so. With ref erence to his trouble with L. B. Quick which resulted in his arrest, ho said: Sir, Quick camo to my homo last night nnd demanded his pay which was previously attached by a boarding order which he had given. Quick worked tor me as a carpenter, al though not a union man, and when he asked for the money ho said he would 'got it or take it out of my hide.' He would not leave my homo when ordered nnd I had to drive him away. I struck him with my fist and not with a billy ns reported and left him nlono when he got outside my premises." JULY WAS VERY WARM. Figures, the Accuracy of Which Are Vouched for by H. E. Pnine, Local Weather Observer. Nobody will take very kindly these days to tho reminder that It Is hot, very hot. Figures aren't needed to prove the assertion, but If such proof was necessary It could be obtained for the asking from H. E. Paine, the gov ernment's local weather observer. Mr. Paine's house at the extreme end of Madison avenue Is well shaded and so comfortably situated as to arouse a feeling almost of spite In the breast of hcat-sufferlng humanity on any of these broiling days. It Is there that Sir. Paine Jots down tho pocularlties of the weather several times a day for the seeming purpose of dishing out the result with undue cheerfulness at tho end of every month. He had great oppoitunlty during July to prepare for getting In his fine woik. July wns a hummer, according to Mr. Pulnc's records which aro kept under the most conservative conditions. The highest point reached by tho thermom eter was 9S degrees on July 3, but the month showed Its versatility and dis position to please everybody by creep ing down to 43 degrees on July 10. The mean temperature was 71.93. The mean maximum, that Is, the average temperature above 74.93, was 86.51, and tho mean minimum was G3.33. The average range was 23.22 degrees per day and the greatest range was 34 de grees on July 1G when tho mercury shifted from 5," to 89 degrees, an aver age of 72 on that day. July 25 showed the least range, 12 degrees. Tho month was remarkably free from rain. Only 2.69 Inches fell, and tho greatest precipitation In any 24 con secutive hours was .93 of an Inch last Saturday. There were 16 clear days, 10 partly cloudy and 5 cloudy. On only 6 days did more than .01 of an Inch of rain fall. Tho only thunderstorms were on July 4 and 30. Of the 6 rainy days four were after the 19th. As a month which furnished the ex tremes and a little of everything, July 1898, outclassed tho corresponding month last year. The thermometer last month as compared with July, 1897, registered 3 degrees higher on the hottest day and S degrees lower on the coolest. The mean temperature was 2.49 degrees higher. There was 2.31 in ches less rainfall and 8 more clear days. Rain fell on 13 days In July, 1897, as against C days last month. Last month's prevailing wind direc tion was southwest while It was south east a year ago indicating the rule that east winds and rain are partners. It was observed, too, last month that the rainfall was the greatest on days when the range of the thermometer was least. - . GARMENT WORKERS ORGANIZE. Freeman Overall Factory Employes Join tho U. G. W. of A. "Trade Unionism" was the subject of an address delivered Slonday even ing to tho Building Trades council by Henry White, of New York city, secre tary and treasurer of the United Gar ment workers of America. Mr. White has been closely Identified with organ ized labor for many years and Is well fortified by his experience and tech nical study to speak in a convincing and interesting way. Mr. White on Slonday afternoon unionized the garment workers of the Freeman Overall factory. He was as sisted by P. J, Thomas and P. G. Moran, of this city. Officers were elected and arrangements made to send a delegate to the next Federation meet ing. Mr. White tald the systematlo work of organizing throughout tho cast was progressing steadily. He left for New York city yesterday morning. MAY GET A WIFE. John Urweider's Hunt for One May Be Successful. John Urweldcr, who made application for a wife to the Associated Chlritles agent, may be successful. A West Side woman, a German, the nationality pre ferred by Urweldcr, has written the agent and the letter was referred to the wife-seeker for further investiga tion. Several women, any of whom, It was thought, might meet with favor In Urweider's eyes, have been made ac quainted with his quest but none of them was willing to take matrimonial chances. , CONNELL BUILDING NOW COMPLETED MANY APPLICATIONS MADE FOR OFFICES. A Triumph of Architectural Beauty nnd Perfection Up-to-Dato Devi cesAn Elevator That Cannot De scend with a Thud No DarK Rooms nnd No Lack of Ventila tionNames of Somo Tenants Al roady Occupying the Oilices A Great Ornament in tho City. Tho Connell building has been com pleted nnd is now ready for occupancy. As can bo seen Its advantages arc bringing numerous tenants. It Is in every respect a credit to tho city and to its architect, L. C. Holden. In desirability of loratlon, perfection of dstnll, eleganco of appointments and consldeiatlon as to benuty and modern utility, It probably surpasses anv other office structure In this region. The rich and classic exterior naturally appeals to the observer at once. Al though eight stories in height the no ble pioportlons glvo no effect of undue altitude tho great frontage of ono hundred foot adding much to Its mass ive and substantial appearance. Tho large court within affords un usual opportunities for light and air, and tho outlook in this direction has none of tho s-ordld and unlovely ac cessories usually obtained from the ordinary court. Tho entrance Is a special feature with Its handsome tiling nnd costly fittings. At night when tho beautiful torch chandeliers nro nglow, the broad por tal and hallway attract much admira tion. The elevators at tho rear ure perhaps the most satisfactory In the city In smoothness of transit and safety. It will bo remembered that some tlmo ago they were subjected to an unusual test which fullv dem onstrated tho Impossibility of Injury to passengers in the event of a break In machinery or ropes. They ure op erated by a hydraulic system and are in duplicates In every detail. They aro run until 10 o'clock nt night and later If tenants desire. FIREPROOF BUILDING. The building is fireproof and such care has been given to details of wir ing that it is Impossible for the elec tricity to produce a conflagration. No outside wires enter, as all telephone and messenger lines nro brought in by conduits from tho street to every of fice. Fireproof vaults and individual safes also afford ample accommoda tions for the tenants. There are ahout one hundred and twenty offices which may be used ensulte, In pairs or singly. They are very spacious and pleasantly arranged, In somo cases being grouped around largo ante-rooms. All are fin ished In oak and richly paneled. There nro no dark rooms In the entire build ing and much attention has been paid to ventilation. The tenants aro pro vided with steam heat and electric lights from the plant on the premises, where machinery Is duplicated for emergencies. Surerlor Janitor servlcu Is also given, while automatic post- boxes are found on all floors. The elaborate electric apparatus was fur nished by the Scranton Electric Con struction company. The upper stories seem to be greatly in demand because of the advantage of coolnesa In summer. One of tho handsomest suites Is that of E. L.
