Weather Is Now Very Pleasant nnd the Boys Aro Prepared to Enjoy The Fragment of Camp Life That Remains Re-examination of the Men Was Resumed Yesterday Af ternoon Commisloner George W. Jenkins Has Arrived in Camp to Conduct Today's Election. Special to tho Scruntnn Tillmnc. rani) MncKenzip, Augusta, Ga., Feb. 20. The now 3 has boon received here that all the volunteer troops stationed at this place will be mustered out of the service forthwith. It caused geiierul satisfaction, especially anions the members of the Fifteenth Minne sota, the Thirteenth's neighbor. This will break up Camp MneKenzic. A division drill nnd review was held this nioriihiR and in which Major Generals Youiir and Sumner took part. Jn view of the recent orders re ceived directing the regiment to he niustertd out. it Is understood that to day's were the last military exercises in which the Thirteenth will ever par ticipate. This docs not displease the bovs, as they are now concerned mere ly about their trip home and have no desire to take part In anv mote drills. The weather Is now pleasant and all want to enioy the remaining three weeks of camp life as leisurely as pos sible. The mustering ollicer of this Thirteenth. Captain Howe, visits the regiment daily and offers nil nece.'sary suggestions. The sample pencil copies of the rolls are practically completed and will be turned In for examination tomorrow. The re-cxninlnutlim ol the men was resumed this morning and Companies II. and 15 are now being re-exa mined Tills work will be resumed tomorrow. Generals Sumner and Young left here this afternoon for Washington, where they will attend the sessions of the court of inquiry. Commissioner George AV. Jenkins, of gcranton, is in camp, and will tomorrow conduct the election among the boys for the city o.'llces. Hlchard J. I'.ourke. TO COMBINE THE OPERATORS. 'Ian to Improve the Anthracite Coal Trade. "Uegnrillng the Anthracite Operators' association and n new road to tide water tho evidence Is accumulating that the independent operators are not anxious to build a road." says Satur iays Knglnec-rlng nnd Mini? Journal. It seems likely, however, that the at "intil will be made to get these smaller inipanles in one large company which v .)uld control their lands nnd ship their ii,t over one of the existing roads. Viindurbllt Interests are reported be hind this movement. it Is altogether likelv that if such n "mpany were brought out with tho light Int'TesU behind it, and heralded with n flourish of trumpets as one that was to work the everlasting salvation of the anthracite trade, its stock would go like hot cakes In the present condi tion of the stock tnarki't. How far smh a company would porminently better the anthracite trade Is another matter. "So far :ih producer are concerned the general situation of the anthracite trade Just now leaves little to be de sired. Coming after an unexpectedly heavy oonsunipil'iii In January, the widespread and intense cold wave.wlth its accompanying snow s'torms, has made the consumption for the Hist half sf February something beyond the ivlldest dreams of the most sanguine tales agent. From all over the west Physicians as a class ate opposed to what they call "patent medicines." It is not often they openly endorse thera. Now and men, nowever, some doctor, who has been the eye witness of a remarkable cure by the use oi ur. rterce's rem- i edies, feels it a duty to i tell wllt 111. Vtinw Dr. Joseph Fike, of Lost Springs, Marion Co.. Kan sas, is such a man. He writes: "I am usins a jrood ninny of your medicines iu my practice, Tea years Co I had a patient who iv as badly iHfected with icrofula. Her mouth and throat were Iu an awful condition, and mere were lumps on the outilcle below the Jaws the site of a hen's ere. Other doctors said it was a fatal case. I felt confident that none tf my remedies srould benefit her. It lame to my mind hat Dr. rierce'n tolden Medical Jiieovery was reo ttnmcndcd for such dies, so I went to the drusr stare ind bouiht one bottle and pave It to her to use as directed. Five bottles cured her, and sht Is well to-ilajr." For more than thirty year Dr. H. V. Pierce, of Buffalo, N. Y has enjoyed a far larger practice than many physicians who clmree Urge fees for advice. Dr. Pierce's I' widen Medical Discovery is made without I'.cohol, and it a preparation based upon lis extended experience with disease. It a a temperanet medicine, pure and simple, ind without alcohsl, whiskey, sugar or ryrup to preserve its properties, keeps per fectly In any climate for any length of time. Others may Imitate the remedy; they can. not Imitate its cures. It no one talk you into using an Imitation medicine as a sub. stitute for Dr. Pierce's. Sick people who cannot Ylstt Buffalo may consult Dr. Pierce by mail. He gives free, fatherly advice for treating and curing diseases of a chronic, tbstinate and lingering nature. No charge made for such consultation. f& 7er3SSv tysrosSk mmmmm lUtilNG Powder CO., new vok. come stories of short supplies of coal and Inability to get more. The Intense cold Is likely to make Itself felt In still another way, for thick Ice on tho lakes may delay tho opening of naviga tion considerably. "In the cast, though the dally press spoke of a possible coal famine, the supplies at seaboard points have been Bulllclent. The stormy weather so far has been a hindrance to tho companies by stopping work in breakers, delaying rnll shipments nnd making It Impossi ble to load coal at tidewater. Milder weather Is freeing traffic and the' de mand Is bound to bo heavy through tho balance of this month and during March." IN THE PLAY HOUSES. The Hillman Company. At the Academy of Music last night a company headed by Miss Maude Hillman presented the sprightly com edy drama, "Special Delivery," as the opening bill of their week's engage ment. The play is handsomely staged and wan presented In a very faithful manner throughout. Miss Hillman Is a conscientious artist who has the assistance of a very competent com pany. Some of the members of tt whose work last night won the appro bation of the audience were Frank Holland. J. Gordon Edwards, George H. Uexford, XT. A. Dillon and Helen Frost. Specialties wore Introduced by Harry Hrooks, Yv". A. Dillon, Frank Fay and tho Prince children. Tonight the com pany will bo seen in "Among the Pines" and this afternoon in "Char ity Hess." Good Burlcsrjue Show. The best entertainments witnessed at the Gaiety theater since the opening weeks of the season were given yes terday afternoon and evening by Sher idan nnd Faust's Metropolitan I3ur lesquers. This company Is made up of white and colored artists of ability that was thoroughly appreciated by the large audiences that greeted them. The musical features of the performance were made more pleasing by the pre sence of Lawrence's orchestra. The entertainment opens with an original creation entitled the "Reunion of Na tions," in which whites and Creoles up- pear in the rendition of the newest bal lads and coon songs, dnnces, etc. In the solos and special features of the opening act Miss Kitty Hrown, tho Coates lirothers, Gutton and Wlnfred, and others of the colored wing, were decidedly up-to-date and were enthus iastically encored. The special features were excellent and most of the jokes were of this yenr's vintage. Miss Amy Nelson, vocalist, Watson and Henseley, sketch artists, and Lucler and Belle, musical artists, were well received, and Sophie Thorn gave a pleasing act in the way of an old time clog dance. Cur tis and Wooley, tho German comedians, and the Golden Gate quartette came in for a goodly share of the honors. In tho closing burlesque the acrobatic tlio, NeHon, Gllnserrettl and Demonio gave a marvelous exhlbtlon, which has seldom been equalled on the Gaiety stage. The Metropolitan P.urlesquers will give, in addition to the usual mat inee and evening performances today, a "midnight matinee," at which full election returns will be read from tln stage. The midnight performance will begin nt 11 o'clock, Immediately after the regular show. A Washington's birthday matinee will be given tomor row afternoon and each afternoon dur ing the remainder of the week. He ginning on Thursday afternoon an en tire change of programme will bo given, Introducing new songs, dances, etc. Digby Bell Tonight. That Mr. Digby noil did not over estimate his powers when he deserted the ranks of comic opera comedians to become a worker In the Held of pure legitimate, comedy, no one wh has followed his career during the past three seasons can deny. That ho Is entirely earnest In his efforts In pre senting to the public plays of a high artistic standard is incontrovertible l Following close on the heels of "The Hoosler Doctor,"' Mr. Hell makes lite second appearance before theater-go ers in Mrs. Frances Hodgson Hur nett's "Joe Hurst, Gentleman." The story of Joe Hurst Is so sweet, sa simple, so fraught with alt that is good, noble and manly, that It can not fall to absorb the Interest and enlist the sympathies of all hearers. It will bo seen at the Lyceum tonight. A Notable Engagement. If the demand for seats is any crlter lan, then Fanny Rice's engagement here will be u notable one. She Is not an ephemeral star, glimmering fitful ly in the theatrical firmament, but one whose reputation Is solidly established und rests securely upon a foundation of worthy artistic achievements. Mica lllce will present her popular, success ful operatic comedy, "At the French Ball," on her appearance here. Tho play is one of those quaint mixtures constructed primarily with tho object of inspiring laughter, but, while though pure comedy, and musical comedy at that, It has a distinct ra tional and comprehensive story, which is consistently followed to tho flnal denouement. Miss Rice's engagement promises to bo as satisfactory from a pecuniary point as it undoubtedly will prove from an artistic standpoint. Miss Rice will bo the attraction at tho Ly ceum Friday evening, Feb. 21. IN BANKRUPTCY COURT. E. Moses Examined Before Referee C. A. Van Wormer. A meeting of tho creditors of E. Mosch was hold yesterday afternoon, pursuant to a call from C. A, Van Wormer. referee In bankruptcy. Mr. Moses was subjected to a lengthy ex amination, the result of which was that tho creditors did not care to go to tho expense of having n trustee appointed. The case will therefore bo submitted at once. Concert Tonight at Wilkes-Barre. Prof. D. D. Wood, of Philadelphia, will glvo a concert tonight in tho First Methodist church at Wllkes-Barre, of which Rev. Dr. Pearre Is pastor. Prof. Wood will bo assisted by tho church quartette. DAY'S DOINGS IN DUNMORE BOROUGH TODAY'S ELECTION 01? VITAL IMPORTANCE. It Will Decldo the Tuture Policy to Bo Pursued by the Borough An Exciting Runaway on Drinker Street Rov. A. J. Van Cleft Will Lecture in tho M. E. Church To nightInfant Child of Mr. nnd Mrs. John Dykes Badly Burned. Today's election Is of vast Importance to tho people of Dunmore. They will have nn opportunity of saying by their voteo whether the borough Is to pro ceed along progressive lines or relapse Into the methods pursued for years while the Democrats ruled this little municipality. This election Is not so much a mat ter a politics us It Is of business to the people of the borough. During tho years of Democratic rulo Improve ments wpre unthought of, money was squandered and the squabbles of oill clals gave Dunmore an unenviable re putation far and wide. It was not until progressive Repub lican officials made their Impress felt In borough legislation that better days began to dawn for Dunmore, and now that they are well on their way It would be little less than criminal to take a backward sten when so much yet remains to be done. The Democrats and Whigs are Jubil ant over the fact that tiie Republican council has expended $23,000 for the fis cal year ending March, 1S99. Informa tion regnrdlng the causes of tills ex penditure will be of Interest at this time. When the Republicans. took the reins of government they were hand icapped by proposed law suits, which were entirely justifiable and a legacy fiom Democratic negligence. To avoid these suits Clay avenue was graded and the Quincy avenue bridge was built, costing $1,100 for both. Then there were innumerable little bills which tho Democrats contracted and which the present Republican coun cil obliged to pay out of this year's appropriations. Then came the last, but not least, the contest, which the Democrats were responsible for and which cost the citizens of the borough $7,7G5.58, the borough council's share being one-half, or $3,822.29. The result of the contest was the unseating of all the Democratic ollicials, nine In num ber, who were Illegally elected. In regard to the improvements in the borough. The Republicans have equipped two lire engine companies with engines, carts and hose, costing $2,375; erected six additional fire hy drants and provided the people with six additional electric lights. They have also improved the borough's buildings and grounds by erecting an iron fence and stone steps, etc, making a model town hall Instead of a place for loafers. Can any Democratic council of the past shown such, a cleun, economical and well administered government at the present Republican council? EXCITING RUNAWAY. An exciting runaway took place on Drinker street yesterday morning. A team of horses belonging to n farmer took fright at an electric car near the corners am. started up iast Drinker street at a rapid rate, spilling the con tents, consisting of butter, etc., along the road. Tearing themselves free from the "bob" ns they rushed ulong, they turned from the street, mount ed the bank In front of Mr. Malay's, crossed the porch and tore a post away. The horses continued their mad llight through the garden, tear ing clothes-lines down. They cleared the fence in the rear of the garden and landed on Harper street, where they were caught. The horses were uninjured. The sleigh was almost a complete wreck. Tho driver escaped injury, although ho was dragged along for a consider able distance endeavoring to check tho horses. jr. E.
