ELECTRICAL DISPLAY
FOBJDLY FOORTE
There is a sentiment abroad, in
whioh one or more of the Ooonoilmen
■hare, that the Borough should take
■ome part in the preparation! for the
demonstration on Foorth of Jnly.
This, it is held, is eminently proper,
as the generally aooepted idea is that
the demonstration Is gotten op as mooh
to signalize the completion of mnnioi
pal improvements as to oelebrate the
Fourth of July.
No lavish expenditure of publi o
money is reqoired. The Borongh in
owning its own eleotrio light plaut is
very fortunately situated and ooold
contribute a very novel and strikiug
feature to the day's deooraticns witli
comparatively small cost. It is sug
geste'd that the Borough make an eleo
trioal display. An arch or straotore
of «ome other sort ereoted at the oanal
onlvert.Uill street,and decorated with
the stars and stripes and vari-oolorod
eleotrio light balbs seems to meet the
popular Idea. This would be especial
ly fitting, as the eleotrio light employ
ed would oome from the Borough's
own plant, one of the mauicipal im
provements being oelebrated in the
day's demonstration.
Of the various strnotores that might
suggest themselves the arch would
probably be the most appropriate for
the spot. It is reoalled that tlio ma
terial used in the arch ereoted by the
Friendship Fire Company in one of
Danville's big days of the past was
carefully stored away by the ownors
with a view of finding use for it again
in the future. The Friendship Fire
Oompany is always progressive and
full of public spirit aud there is no
doubt but that an arrangement conld
be effected whereby the Borough won Id
be permitted to use the aroh. whioh
ooold be very easily reconstructed.
It is hoped that oor Borough Fath
ers will take kindly to the suggestion
and see their way clear to thus assist
in the deooratlons. Whatever is done,
however, will have to be done quick
ly, as barely two weeks intervene be
tween the present and ludependeuoe
Day.
New Safety Appliance.
New safety regulations concerning
the transportation and handling of ex
plosives were pat into efFeot on the
Pennsylvania Railroad Uonday as tli e
result of the oarefnl investigation of
the sabjeot sinoe the big wreck at
Sooth Harrisburg.
These new rales are oontained in
general notice No. 174 A, which sup
ersedes the regulations which have
been in force sinoe September 25,18H9.
Importance of the new rales beaoines
doably great since they probably will
be taken as the basis for recommenda
tions to the railroads of the oouutry,
wliioh a speoial committee of the Am
erican Railway Association will make
at the fall convention.
Chief amoug the changes in old me
thods are: First, that explosives shall
be carried only on fast freight trains
of not more than thirty cars, two
thirds of whioh shall be undei air
brakes. Second, that no high explos
ives, containing more than sixty per
ceut. of nitroglyoerine except gelatiu
dynamite, will be carried, aud, third,
that high explosives must be packed
in strong wood boxes made of lumber
not less tliau a half iuoli in thickness.
Explosives are put iu six classes,
with speoial rules goveining the load
ing, marking and transportation of
each, packages being limited to oue
hundred ponnds, so that, should the
need arise,one man ooald handle theru.
Carloads of explosives will be re
ceived only ou Mondays and Thurs
days ; less than oar load lots any day
except Saturday. In making up trains,
only one car loaded with explosives
and marked accordingly, will be put
in each train. It shall be plaoed in the
middle of the traiu with a box oar at
eaoh end, bat in no oase oloser to the
locomotive than the distance of ten
oars.
In oase of a wreok. the first duty of
employes is to prevent fire. Before
clearing up a wreok explosives are to
be carefully removed to a plaoe of safe
ty. Only steel underlrame box cars,
equipped with air brakes and in first
class oondition, so that no sparks ouu
get inside, can be used.

DANVILLE LOST
JEST GAME
The local team lost the first game of
the series with the Onban Giants Mon
day afternoon at DeWitt's Park. The
game was hotly contested from the
start and as both pitchers were in
warm weather shape the hits came
slow, and rnus still slower. Sampson
for tlio visitors allowed hot two hits
and UcOloud held the dark wouders
down to eight hits wlii.ih several times
resulted in rnus.
The audience was oomposed of peo
ple who know how the game should
be played, aud the applause was lib
eral for both teams. The visitors,
always on the alert, gathered in sev
eral whioh looked like safe ones, aud
the home team seemed auxious to ex
oel their oppouents In thrilling plays.
Logan, always in the game, knock
ed one dowa which everybody thought
was a safe hit, throwing his m%u out
at first after whioh the applause was
terrific. Too much cannot be said of
the way all the players handled the
ball iu yesterday's game and the fact
was again demonstrated that the locals
always acquit themselves creditably
wheu playing against a high grade
olub.
The crowd was smaller than was ex
pected but with favorable weather to
day the attendance will no doubt be
muoh larger.

Will be in Use Saturday.
Pursuant to the aotion of Gounoll
City Clerk Pattou yesterday placed an
order for one dozeu garbage cans with
a Philadelphia firm. The cans are ex
pected to arrive in a few days and
will no doubt be installed by Saturday
night.
It is very essential that the public
should understand fully to what uses
the garbage caus are to be put. It is
not the intention that they are to be
come receptacles for any of the waste
and offall left over from the curb
stone market, which is gathered up
and hauled away by men especially
employed for that task. They are to
be used for other articles of diverse
sorts such as ciroulars, newspapers,
wrappers, peauut shells, banana peels,
&c., which scatteied about, help to
make the streets look very untidy. It
has been observed that even wheu the
paved street has beeu thoroughly clean
ed ou Saturday eveuiug by Suuday
morniug it presents a very dirty ap
peareiioe due to the thoughtlessness of
people in throwing everything they
want to get rid of out upon the street.
It is necessary that people ednoato
themselves up to the use of the garbage
can, as they will be giveu no choice
iu the matter and will be compelled to
make use of them as dirocted. The
law recently enacted by the Legislat
ure imposes a penalty for throwing
articles of the sort enumerated above
upon the street. Kven nails, screws
and the like, which often iujure horses'
feet, come iu under the act and must
be kept off the street.
While euforoing the act the Borough
is uot obliged to procure garbago cans ;
the measure has been merely adopted
by Coauoll in order to bring about
habits of tidinoss among tl.e poople
and assist in the observance ot the
law.
Fourth of July Warning.
The able statistician of the Chicago
Tribune tabulates the Fourth of July
casualties and fire losses. Iu ten years
1,100 persons aud 5,51)3 in
jured, more or less seriously, ou In
dopeudouoe dav in teu cities. The fiie
losseß reached the suugsum of $5,(151),-
000.
This is proof that Americans are
patriotio, but cau we uot prove our
patriotism in aome less costly and less
deadly way?
Much of the Bhootiug aud most of
the self-destruction is by children.
With them patriotism doesn't connt so
much as liaviug just a jolly good time.
Most of them do not understand ox
cept iu the vagneiit way the historic
siguifioauce of the day, and their en
thusiasm is lees of a tribute to Amer
ioa than to China. It was the latter
oountry that invented fire orackers.
Is it not worthy of consideration
that if we do not soon have a Fourth
of July reform we shall soun come to
know it as the Slaughtor of the Innoc
ents?
After all, we ought not to kill more
people iu celebrating the war nf In
dependence than were killed iu the
war itself

L-TOK BUM'S
JAD INJURY
j frank fiocher, of Sunbury, sou of
|S*timet Bucher, of Riverside, a brake
man iu the employ of the Peuusyl
vauia Railroad Company, Monday
passed through the second railroad ac
| oident iu a year, again sustaining in
juries of a very serious nature.
Frank, who is au extra brakeman,
Monday morning was assigned to doty
iu the R F Yard. About 3 o'clock
in the afternoon he fell under the
wheels, two oars passing over him
His left foot was crushed, his collar
bone was broken and he was lacerated
and bruised all over his body.
. He was taken to the Mary M. Pack
er Hospital for treatment. Miss Eliza
beth Huchar, sister of the injured man,
oame up to South Danville from Sun
bury 011 the 5:50 train. About 0:80
o'clock she called up the hospital by
'phone to learn the particulars as to
her brother's oouditiou.
The amputation of the left foot had
then already boon performed,the mem
ber beiug takeu oft at the iustep. It
was stated by the hospital authorities
that Frank's condition was critical al
though there was no immediate dang
er of any serious developments. He
was conscious, although as above stat
ed his collar bone was broken and he
was out and bruised from head to foot.
There is also the probability of inter
nal injuries, which may uot develop
until later
Frank had an exceedingly olose call
at Georgetown less than a year ago,
beiug hurled from the top of a liorise
car, by the breaking of an air hose,
aud sustaining injuries as the result
of which he hovered betwoeu life and.
death for some days.
LAST CHANCE TO
SAVE THE WOMAN
WIN DSOR, Vermont, Jane 31—Mary
Rogers, who is under seuteuco to die,
Friday,(or the oold blooded murder of
her hunbaud, Marcus Rogers will got
another chance this morning.
The writ of habeas corpus of the U.
S. court Monday took the state offic
ials by sunrise. This was evident this
morning. Attorney General Fitts was
to appear 111 Windsor this afternoon to
argue on the writ in opposition to the
olaiius of error made by Mrs. Rogers'
counsel.
He sent word this morning that lie
would be unuhlc to be in Windsor in
time for the hearing and an arrange
ment was 11 a V whereby the hearing
was transferred to Brattloboro. Word
of I lie change v in Kent to Judge Wheel
er and to Governor Bell.
It is considered more than likely that
Attorney General Fitts will not be
prepared to argue the case at length
this afternoon and that he will con
sent to an adjournment for a mouth.
In that ev< nt Governor Hell will neces
sarily have to issue another leprieve.
Mary Rogers was almost light hearted
this morning over the prospect of fur
ther stay in her exrcutlou.
"I am hoping for the best," she said
to her counsel, who visited her at the
prison this morniug. "It may be that
I may never have to hang."
Tlio convicted woman spent a busy
morning preparing for her appearance
in court today. She has not been out
side of the prison confines for over two
years and the prospect of a visit to the
outside woild aroused her interest in
her personal appearance.
She will bo taken to the courthouse

is anticipated ill the court room de

PAVEMENT AT
THE COPBT HOUSE
The matter of sidewalk repairs at
the Court House was taken op at the
meeting of the County Commissioners
on Saturday. Repairs will hare to be
made to conform with |he relocation
of the ourb as lias been required all
along Mill street aud the work will
hare to be done promptly, too, if any
effort is to be mado to oomply with
the order sent oat by the Borough
Council that pavements be repaired
befoie the Fourth of July.
No deliuite aotiou was taken by the
Couuty Commissioners. Many persons
think there should be a concrete pave
ment iu front of the Court House,along
with massive conorete steps leading to
the entranoe. Since a goneral tearing
up is necessary there seems to be no
reasou why the work should not be
doue rightly and improvements install
ed that will add to the of
the building. The Court House arohi
teuturall, Is really a fine building and
claim is made that it is worthy of a
better pavement than the wholly out
of-date patchwork of flagstoues wliioh
oovers the sidewalk at present.
The expeuse of oouorete work would
be materially reduoed by tho proceeds
realized from tho sale of the flag
stoues aud tiie stones used in the con
struction of the steps at present, tiie
last named espeuialiy being valuable.
Horse Falls on Pavement.
A horse driveu by Heury Jones slip
ped ou oue of the rails of the trolley
traok nearly opposite Hotel Baldy yes
terday and fell flat ou the pavement.
By standi rs thought the animal was
injured but before the driver could
alight he sprang to his feet and seemed
none the worse for the fall. One of the
shafts was broken.
ALARMED OVER
POSSIBLE REVOLT
NEW YORK,June 21—The uprising
against tiie new rates of the Royal
Arcanum has gone far beyond the'con
trol of the Supreme council and when
the executive committee of that body
meets In Boston oue week heuoe they
will listen to protests from all over
the country. Representatives of the
oonuoil everywhere will be at the
meeting of the executive oommittee
and urge a reconsideration of the new
ly-adopted schedule. A referendum
plan will be suhinitted.oalling for the
abolishment of the new rates aud a re
turn to the system of assessments.
There is no denying that the Su
preme Council offioers are alarmed by
the revolt in the orgauization. They
expected a few complaints,but did not
look for the widespread revolt that has
happened siuoe the publication of the
new tables. Iu every subordinate coun
cil that lias held.a meeting since the
Supreme Council meeting in Atlantio
City there has been raised au objection
to the new rates aud a lesolution pass
ed oalling for their recoußideration.
Unless the executive aommittee recom
mends the abolislimeut of the new
rates, eudless litigation is sure to fol
low, Several of the most prominent
councils in this State have adopted
resolutions aud set aside fundH to fight
tiie matter iu tiie courts.
23rd STREET FERRY, NEW

Reading's New Terminus in the
Centre of New York City.
Commencing June 25th the now Dp
town ferry at the font of Wost 23rd
stroet.N. R., New York, will be open

patroiiß as well as their qaiok handl
ing. The ferry house is double decked
with two waiting rooms, the one on
the main floor being 00x80 feet and on
the upper floor 50xfi0 feet and as the
ferry boats are also double deckers,
passengers will be landed from both
the upper and lower deuks.
An eleotria cab serviae at low rates
has been provided and the cabs will
meet the passengers at the water front
instead of on the street. The Metro
politan Street Railway has co-operat
ed by putting in loops for the follow

of wliioh iiave stations on this street,
while the New York Subway presents
still another means of transportation
up or down the island ; this is further
more the heart of the hutel and theatre

[DON'T VIOLATE
THE LAWS
The Uoverument is entailing a very
heavy expense in establishing and
maintaining rural free delivery of our
mails, and it is proving suoli a con
venience to the people, that very few
who liavj experienced its advantages
would be willing to do Without it.
But tho Qoverument oxpeots to be
reimbursed for its great outlay, by au
increased amount of mail to be carri
ed,on which postage is to be paid, aud
it expects everybody to play fair in
this matter. It is, therefore, required
that all mail matter dropped into a
bux most have tiie requiste amount of
postage stamps on it, or a suftioient
amount of money in the box to pay
the postage, and anything found in a
box, wliioh is not thus stamped or lias
not enough cash with it to pay the
postage, is to be lifted by the carrier
aud brought to tiie, post office where it
will be "lipid for postage" according
to law.
We have published this fact before,
but thero are some who, it seems.iiave
not learned tho faot or else tliiuk they
cau slip iu a letter to a frieud by drop
ping it into tus letter box, their line
of reasoning probably being that as
the letter need not bo handled by any
goveruinout official, thero noed bo no
postage paid on it. But those boxes
are erected under the protecting care
of government and thus form part of
the post offioe department, although
paid for by the Individual, and, there
fore, nothing cau be permitted to pass
through them witliont postage being
paid thereon.
Carriors, who are expeoted to be ob
liging aurl accommodating, have 110
choice in the matter, as tlmir instruc
tions are imperative, to lift every pieoe
of mailable matter found in a box, for
wliioh tliore is not provision for post
age, and if the postage is not forth
coming iu a specified time the missive
is seut to the Dead Letter Office.
Let everybody play fair, therefore,
with the government, and there will
be no cause for oomplaint if intended
notes dropped into lotter boxes fail to
reach their destination.

IRON HOURS
ANNUAL PICNIC
The picnic season was opened Sat
urday by the annual outing of the Iron
Moulders' Union of Danville and fate
had decreed that the first picnic of
the season in point of atteudanoe,
weather conditions and in fnil measure
of harmless enjoyment shonld be a
well-rounded aud unqualified suocess.
Tl • stova works iu all departments was
shut down, all the employes taking a
day off. Tho greater number probably
joined the moulders at DeWitt's Park.
The day was quite warm, whioli made
the cool breezes which at all times
play through the Park all the more en
joyable. The entire day.althongh there
were fully eight hundred persons on
the grounds, was marked with the
utter abseuoe of accident or ooour
renoe of any sort to mar the pleasure.
The local lodge of moulders, some
seventy strong, headed by the Wash
ington drum corps,about 10:30 o'olock
marohed to the park In a body. A
general invitation had been tendered to
the publio aud the crowd soon follow
ed. About noon the Park presented a
pretty scene. Bach family with speci
al fiiends invited, or two or more
families grouped together occupied the
innumerable tables scattered about the
grove. It was evident from the
scores of well filled baskets taken to
the Park and bv the time spent around
tiie tables that dinner washy no means
the least important feature of the day.
In tiie afternoon dancing began,
which continued until late Saturday
eveniug, the Iron Moulders aud their
friends being the first to enjoy the
large dancing pavilion. In addition to
the dancing the swings and other
similar devices for entertaining the
younger element were kept moving.
Next to dancing, however, the merry
go-round was the attraction and its
capacity, big as it is,was sorely taxed
to accommodate the waiting crowd.
The game of base ball scheduled be
tween the Danville Club aud Wilkes-
Barre oould not be pullod off owing to
the non-arrival of the Wilkes-Barre
team. A game of base ball was play
ed between the Danville A. A. aud the
Stove Moulders' team. In order to add
to the interest of the game the
two batteties were exchanged. Edgar
aud McCloud of the Danville A. A.
went to the Stove Moulders and Walk
er aud Mintzer of the Stove Works
played with the A. A. The latter
team won out on a small margin.

School Athletics.
The subject of school atlileticß is at
tracting much attontiou of late, both
in Pennsylvania and New York, since
it hi"! been found that the health of
the public school childreu in cities is
defective far beyond anything the in
spectors had anticipated. Much of this
weakness is traced to lack of fresh air
and facilities for active exercise, and
so pressiug is the need for improving
the physical development of the popils
chat in New York a Pablio School
Athletic League was forniel of promi
nent busiueas meu to interest the boys
in athletics.
So successful was this league that
just the other day the Hoard of Esti
mates authorized $300,000 for the pur
chase of athletic fields for school boys.
More than 30,000 boys have entered
this year iu the preliminary ioonds of
the Spring contests,and as no papil is
allowed to oompete nnines he is up to
the staudard iu conduct aud studies,
the moral aud intellectual good effect
of school athletics is quite as marked
as the physioal.
Recently at the Friends' yearly meet
ing in Philadelphia, this question was
widely discussed. Presidnnt Swain,
of Swarthmore College, was most em
phatic in nis favor of sports,declaring
"Every boy and girl must have the
playgrouud. Experience of twentj-five
years with the young couviiiccs me
that the athletic field Is a necessity."
Another speaker statod that fifty per
cent, of all bank clerks die of consump
tion before middlo agu bncause the
majority of them have failed to build
up their bodies by athletic exorcise in
youth.
Few, nowadays, decry the expense
of providing menus to insure this
building np of the body. Frequently,
opportunities for exercise are furnish*
ed by publio playground*, which are
inereaisng both in number and favor,
but it is especially essential that each
school building have a big yard.
