Kor a decade and more tho ono really great event, hh far ns society Is con cerned, lins been the regular New Year function, the "Bachelors' Ball." When somo time ngo It was announced that the Bachelors' committee had decided to abandon the ball for this season great was the lamentation among the large society contingent tht had looked forward with so much Joyful anticipa tion to the most brilliant occasion of the year. It has grown to be an unwritten law that the favorite friends from other cities are certain to be Invited to spend New Year In Scranton If they nro here at no other time. So fixed has been this custom that the ball has become famed for the presence of beautiful girls whose rare personal charms have brought them distinction whenever they have appeared and not u little quiet rivalry might have been observed In securing these guests whose pres ence was so desirable. It has also been much In vogue for the society leaders of Scranton to make their entrance at this ball In the most elaborate gowns of the season, ordered especially for the occasion and notable for their costly elegance. Anticipations on the pai t of the danc ing men have been no less eager for they have been rather opt with one accord to vote each succeeding ball as "the time of their lives" and usually each occasion has been held In memory dear by both men and maidens for some singularly pleasant Incident, sweet to recall. Treasured Programmes. Many a happy marriage has resulted from tho first meeting of two congenial people at the Bachelors' and more than one fair wife treasures fondly tho dnncn programme of a certain date whose New Year tecoid Is surrounded by 11 blissful glow. Thus It was that the feeling which greeted tho announcement of the tem porary abandonment of tbn ball waa something like consternation. Where was the use of asking the lovely girl met last summer to spend the holidays If there were to be no Bachelors'? Where was the use to plan house par ties or little dinners or Informal dances. If there were to bo no Bachelors'" as a central attraction? Therefore when a commit tec of gen tlemen made It known that they pro posed to give a ball, which If not as large as tho Bachelors, would be every bit as elegant In detail and probably Just as enjoyable to the clancets be cause of a superior floor, gteat wa3 the tide of cangratulatlons. It Is due to the enterprise nnd inde fatigable effort of Messrs. .lames Blair. Jr., M. B. Fuller and W. .1. Torrey that last night's dance at tho Bicy cle club house was arranged to bridge over the year made promi nent by the lapse In the Bachel ors' series of entertainments. With commendable energy and taste they surpassed all expectations resulting In tho most splendid affair of the year and Indeed the most brllllunt ever given In the Bicycle club. The pationesses, Mrs. K. L. Fuller, Mrs. James Archbald, Mrs. W. W. Scranton. Mrs. T. H. Watklns, Mrs. C. II. Sturges, Mis. 1 J. Piatt, Mrs. II. W, Kingsbury and Mrs. Paul B. Bella received in the front reception room. They were magnificently gowned, and with the effective setting of the decor ations made a picture long to be re membered. Arrival of Guests. Vhfn the guests arrived they were met with a surprise In the decorations of the ball room, which were entirely original in design and effect. Imagine the charming room with Its vast wall space entirely hidden by the loveliest, tenderest hue of pink bunting Inter mingled with while, and falling In long graceful folds with overlying fes toons of the same. The windows were Included In this new covering, and the stngc draperies were likewise con cealed. Tho general effect was Inde scribably beautiful. It was a room In which a debutante would choose to make her llrst bow to society, for If she were fair in the usual flower decked parlors. In this dainty, light hearted place, with Its Dresden-like tints and lovely shadowy rose rellec tlons, she could surely be a vision of radiance, and such a vision was re peated over and over again last night. The stage had additional feutures of attractiveness In this semi-transparent screen of green vines which Inter posed their delicate tracery between the outer room nnd the orchestra. Fronting this were masses of palms and ferns, also arranged by Florist Clark. The staircase was similarly decor ated, and the landing In the rear was made Into a bower-like retreat ex tremely pleasing to the eye. The ball and reception rooms were transformed by rich oriental druperles, and several cosy corners arranged at mantel sides and In various convenient I Arc much nicer than anything uow sold as fresh. Most vegetables in market come from the South and are too old and stale for healthy food. We offer a line line of Corn, Peas, Tomatoes, Stringless Beans at 10c per can. Fancy Maine Corn, 12c, $1.40 per dozen. Baby Corn, 15c. Dinner Party Beans 15c; value 25c. E. G. Com sen Rpots. Hete great divans and the Fast Indian stuffs made Inviting resting places. The Supper Room. The supper room on the second floor wns probably the most frankly sur prising in this transformation. Count less Japanese lanterns gave the first effect of oriental magnificence. After these tho soft lights, the quantities of rlch-hucd blossoms, the glenm of elab orate table arrangements and many other details of luxury made up a rare picture, Clark was In charge of the floral effects, and, as Is his custom, made a great success. The supper was In chnrge of Wil liam Hanlcy, nnd wns daintily nnd satisfactorily served at small tables In both the regular supper hull nnd the billiard room. It Included: lloulllon. Dread SthU Chicken Croquettes. Oister Pattle. Ollvca Ice Cream. C'aUca. Coffee. The danco music wns furnished en tirely by Bauer's orchestra, which gave special music Just now In vogue In New York.

Everything was moving smoothly In tho street car service yesterday, and all aprcheuslons of a renewal of the strike have about dlsapcared. The discharge of Dispatcher Charles Powell and the retention of two of the old car men who continued to work during the strike were the cause nf much murmuring among the members ot the union but their executive com mittee has advised that the union can not take action in either case further than to make petition to the company to accede to tho mens' desires, and that If the company does not see Ht to grant the petition the union cannot Interfere further. In the Powell rase, it Is proposed by the executive committee to frame n pe tition for the discharged dispatcher's telnstatement and circulate It for tho signatures of all the car men and various piominent citizens. This will bo presented to General Manager Sllll man with the earnest request of the union that the prayer be grunted. The executive committee yesterday afternoon waited on Mr. Slllman with ti protest from the union men against being compelled to work with the two car men who refused to Join the union and continued to work during the strike. Mr. Slllman told them flatly tho pro test would have to be Ignored. The two men In question had stuck by the company when it most needed them and at a great personal sacrifice 'to themselves and the company now un der no circumstances would nllow It self to bo persuaded to desert them. The executive committee waa Im pressed w 1th the reasonableness of Mr. SlUlman's position and agreed that It would advise the members ot the union accordingly. Promises came from both sides that any animosities engendered by the strike would be obliterated and that no man would be discriminated against because of any connection he had with the strike, no matter how prominent or active his parttcpatlon.
