The Washington Hose House on East Market street, which for a long time has beeu iu ueed of repairs, is to be practically rebuilt and when fiuished will be a very fine home for the com pany, comparing favorably with the best tire houses in this section. The Washlugton Hose House is uot au old building but it has developed many defects, due principally to bad ventilation. Owing to dampness the paper will not adhere to the wall, the interior is damp and monl ly and wholly Ht variation with good hygiene. At the last meeting of Council, Wetley Hollabaugh and Lewis SVray, representing the fire company appear ed before Oouucil expl killing the de feots of the huil ling and asking that repairs be authorized. The matter was referred to lhe Building Committee by Couucil and this body Ims decided up on the following system of repairs: On the interior the partition iu the hallway on the first floor up to where the stairway begins is to be removed.

BOROUGH FATHERS _ WiLUEORATE Our Borough Kathera have caught (lie Fourth of July spirit and although they nan not see their way clear to en ter upon au olootrioal display for In dependence Day, yet they have decid od to decorate City Hall in grand style. A special meeting of Council was held Saturday night, at which two proposals wero read from decorators. Ono of these was from John H. Ban gert, who proposed to deoorate Oity Hall from the roof to the .first fiior with fast colors, flags aud bunting,for the sum of |IO. The other was from J. H. Hammerly & Company, who pro posed to decorate the building for sls. On motion it was decided to decor ate City Hall something after the man lier above proposed but it was left iu the bauds of the Buildiug Oouimit tie to wait upon the decorators and look over designs so as to get the best effect for the money. Council convened at the usual hour aud in a body went to A street to look over the ground with reforouco to the new pavement grade turnislied by the Borough Eugiueer. Atß:3othoy re turned to Couucil Chamber when on motion of Mr. Vastiue it was agreed to adopt the uew grade for pavement as soon as tho Dauville and Blooms bnrg Street Railway Company sign an agroouieut relating to the matter On motiou the Secretary was instructed to notify the officers of ttie Trolley Company of Council's action. nurgoss Purscl WHS preseut at the ■ueetiuK mid called Couucil's attention to the rank giowtli of weeds ou the river bauk, recommending that the Street Commissioner be iustructed to have them cut down. Ou motion the garbage cans, which arrived ou Thursday, wera accepted aud ordered placed about the streets. One of the cans was ordered place I at the post office; the distribution of the remainder was left iu the hands of the Street Commissioner. Couucil made it very plain that itß object ill placing the cans upon the street is to secure tlie enforcement of tlie recently enacted law.which makes it unlawful to throw papers, rubbish, banana peels, or fruit ill any form up on the streets Couucil believes that through the medium of tlie Morning News, which has fully explained tlie aot, the people are by this time pretty fumiliar with the uew law aud the in tention is to enforce it. It was clear ly stated that persouß who peisist iu throwing articles upon tho street will be arre-tod and mulcted iu fine. This brought up tho subject of mar ket and it was the sense of some of the members that tho faimers leave be hind altogether too uiuuli wasto matter in the form of cabbage leaves and tho like to be hauled away at the Bor ough's expense. Mr. Vastiue said tlie farmers should be obliged to load all such stuff upou their wagons ittul take it along home. He made a motiou that farmers who refuso to comply should be arrested aud made ta pay a fine, l'iie motion carried. Tho following members of Council were present at the meeting: Gibson, Reifsnyder, Vastiue, Sweisfort, Hnglies, Magill, Boyer, Dietz, Goeser aud Ja cobs. Picnic on July Fourth. Oue of the most interesting evouts of July 4th aside from the various features of the big demonstration will be the picnic given iu DoWitt's Park by the Continental Hose Couipauy. This will no doubt be a gigantic affair attracting iu addition to our owu townspeople visitors by the thou sand, all of whom have heard of the park and will waut to visit the resort. Tlie Continental boys are sure of the orowdH aud they are uow busy making preparation to eutertaiu them. The picnic will be au all-day affair aud the ):ark will bo open to the pub lic, tlieie lieiug no oliargo for admis sion. There will be dancing all day aud a game of base hall between the Dau ville A.

DANVILLE. MONTOUR COUNTY PA., FRIDAY, JUNE ttO, 1905 THE ROUTE OF PARAOE The Citizens' Fourth of Joly Com mittee held a regular meeting last night, the following being present: Riklpli Kisner. Esq., Burgess W. G. Fursel, W. V. Oglesbj, Esq., Jacob Boyer, Edward Parpor and Johuuy Moyer. Dr. Jno. Sweisfort, Chief Marshal of the parade, was also pres eut. Some changes in (he route of parade were disooased and it was decided to extend the roate to Nassau street. The route of parade now decided upon is as follows: Forming on North Mill stroet the parade will move op Bloom street t) Ash, out Ash to Center, down Center to Ferry, out Kerry to Hemlock,down Hemlock to Mill, up Mill to Market, up Market to Nassau, down Nassau to Front, down Frout to Mill aud count ermarch. The parade will start at 11 o'clock. Chief Marshal Sweisfort is now busy selecting his aids, of which twenty odd will be needed. Up to the present there has beeu nothing to indicate that thero will be a single float in the parade, which is qaite a disappointment to the Com mittee, which expected great thing-) from the busiuess men in the way of floats. It is uot to3 late yet and the business poople are earnestly request ed to think the matter over to see whether they will uot fiud it to their interest to exhibit their different lines of goods in the parade. As a means of advertising, such a float could not be excelled, whilo it would add one feat ure to the parade aud thus contribute to the day's success. The Committee fiuds that it is still about one hundred dollars short of what is needed to liquidate the full cost of the deuioustration as planned. It i3 believed that there are still a good many people that have not been asked for subscriptions,who should be willing to contribute something to help the proposition along. Our two policemen are authorized to receive contributions and all those from now on who desire to give anything can baud the monoy to the officers It is hoped that there will be some addi tional contributions. It is the sense of the Committee that there should at least be one address on tho Fourth of July audit was deoideH last evening that an iuvitatiou be ex tended to Ex-Senator B. K. Focht to be present as the orator of tho day. Senator Focht was father of the bridge bill, by virtue of which we have the handsome iron structure over the riv er,the completion of which along with tho Fourth of July is to be oelebrated Glorious Fourth at Danville. From present indioatious tlie big time at Danville, that is scheduled to take place ou the Fourth of July, will be like the second edition of a big cir cus—larger, better, more magnificent than ever before. At least that is the promise that is held forth by the Dauvilleites.aud the visitor who gojs there ou the day of the celebratiou of Independence, is guaranteed a day of festival aud fuu that will not soon be forgotten. Although it is a week away from the birthday anniversary of the Independence of this glorious United States, tlie couuty seat town of Mon tonr, is commencing to dou its holiday attire and oro the day arrives it prom ises to vie in brilliaucy eveu with the garments woru by Uuole Sam aud Miss Liberty, themselves. A docoratlng company, from Read ing, the oue that did the display work for Williamsport, at the time that the recent oonclave was held there, is al ready ou the ground aud has contracts for decorating many of the business places. Tlie committee of arrangomeuts that has this big Danville, celebration in charge, has spared no trouble nor ex pense iu its efforts to have this day prove a successful oue and the com mittee claims that it lias been most successful in its efforts. In tlie mean time, the whole country ronud is sav ing its best duds and anxiously await ing the arrival of the eventful day.— Blooiusburg Daily. Bad Fall From Cherry Tree. John Cook, the thirteen-year old son of Millard P. Cook, Upper Mulberry street, took a fearful plunge from the top of a tall cherry tree yesterday af ternoon aud sustained a broken arm, a broken leg and other injuries. The tree is on the Cook premises. How tho acoideut occurred is not ex otly known. The boy was among the top brauches of the tree and it is sup posed that oue of the small liiuba broke under his weight or bent in such a manner as to cause him to slip off. At all events ne took a drop of some twenty five feet to the ground. Iu his fall he struck the lower limbs and iu this way he received several cuts and bruises iu addition to the more serious injury sustained when he struck the ground. I He was terribly shocked by the fall, 1 although he was not rendered uncou j scious. It was evident that he was ser- I iously injured; he was carried iuto the ! house and Dr. Ouriy was called. | An examiuatiou revealed that his ' loft thigh was fractured and that his right arm was broken just above the ( wriht. In each instance the fracture . was complete. Several scalp wounds, I not serious iu their nature, wore sus ; taiued in the fall. Dr. Gurry set the brokeu bones aud dressed the other iujuries,after which last evening the boy was resting easily. POLISH BREWERY WAS ROBBED The safe in the office of the Polish Lithuanian Brewery was oraoked Sat urday morning. The job was a very oleau one indicating that professionals might have had a baud iu it.althon gh the cracksmen were awkward euough to overlook the snug sum of one hundred dollars, escaping with the trifle of sixteen dollars. v When the day eugiueer appeared at the brewery early Saturday morning he was surprised to see all tho shatters of the office olosed with the exception of one. whioh was unusual, as the shutters are usually open He men tioned the ciroumstanoe to the night engineer, who recalled that a report hard to aooount for had been heard in the vioinity of the brewery about 2 o'clock. Au investigation showed that the office had been entered by thieves, that the safe had been blown open aud rilled. In tiie wiudow that romainod open a pane of glass had been broken out. This enabled the bnrglars to reaoli through aud unfasteu the window so that the Bash could be raised. Ouoe iuside they had olosed the shutters to conceal their movements. Tho drawers including the money drawer containing sixteen dollars was missing, but among tho contents left behind was a large wallet containing oil) hundred dollars. The safe, whioh hears the niuue of "Barnes," is a total wrock. The door was uot ouly torn from the safe but it was shattered to pieoes, the tough steel plate ou the outer side being rent by the force of the explosion like that muoli paper. The cracksmen resorted toauold triok of twisting off tiie handle, which left an apertore in which the explosive was poured. Some powerful instru ment had been applied to.the knob, whioh gavo tiieiu sufficient purchase. The tough steel rod to whioh the knob was attached was twisted several times around before it gave way. The point at wliifch it parted was at the inside of the door, the portion remaining in tact beiug twisted into tiie semblance of au auger. What kind of explosive was ÜBed is uot knowu, but it was most likely uitro glyoeriue. Tlie force of the ex plosion aeut the door back against the wall with sncli force as to splinter the waiusootiug. Ou the premises were found a large nail outter.a braoe aud bit,whioh Sat urday were ideutifled as property stol eu from the premises of Clarence Prioe, a carpenter living near the P. &. R. station. There is no clue what ever leading to the burglars,who there is some reason to believe were persons familiar with movements about the brewery. Ou Friday afteruoon Emil Maliuo wski, general manager, came dowu from Wilkeßbarre aud delivered a Bum of money over to S. J. Ozeohowioz, the book keeper at the brewery. The hundred dollars that the burglars left behind were of this money. Its pres ervation was due to a trivial circum stance. Iu locking the safe Friday eveniug Mr. Czecliowicz at the last moment bethought himself of a hun dred dollars whioh be had in a large wallet in a side pocket. Without stop ping to remove the oasli and plaoe it in the money drawer he placed wallet, money and all in a pigeon hole im mediately below the money drawer. In the hurry aud exoitement it seems the burglars did not go any further in their search for money than the drawer devoted to cash, whioh contained six teen dollars,their oonolusion no donbt being that the big wallet, carelessly rammed into the pigeon hole oontain ed paiiors ouly. From the position that it lay iu after tlie robbers left it was plain that it was pioked np and handled by the avaricions oraoksmen little dreaming of the handsome bunoli of swag that lay right under their noses. Duiing Saturday moruing the boxes belonging to the safe, whioh had beeu carried off, wero found at the oolvert over Blizzard's ran near the D. L. & W. station. The money, of oonrse was mißsing, bat other contents of tho boxea, among whioh were valuable papera, so far as could be determined were all aoooouted for on Satarday. Eight Years in Hawaii.* Bruce Hartmau, a former Montour county boy,yesterday returned to Dan villo after au abseuce of eight years spent mainly ou the Sand wioh Islands. He is the son of Harris Hartman. who during Bruoe's boyhood was » resident of Limestone township, but who now resides ou a farm whioh he owns uear Rnckhoru iu Columbia coun ty.

Tho rubbish causreooutly purchased by Council wero installed upon the street by E. S. Miller yesterday. The Street Commißßiouer was uniler no special orders as to plaoiug the cans but merely nsed Ills judgment in the matter. Tlie galvanized receptacles seom to be placed at about the pioper intervals ami help to give onr busy and neatly paved street a thoroughly up-to-date appearanoe. Here and there a dweller along the street seems to have a wrong Idea of the use of the caus; they oomplaiu that the reooptacles are too far away from their residences aud altogether seem to be under the impression that the cans are designed to take care of all the waste and rubbish that ao camutates about the dwellings or stores whereas tiie laot is that the receptacles aie intended ouly for floating papers and other traili iu tlie bauds of per sons moviug about the street. Stores mid dwelliugs will bo obliged to take oare of their owu rubbish The misconception as tu the use of the onus has given rise to tiie view Mi ll the duzeu installed are not suffi cient and that Council should purchase auother dozen cans The appearauce of th i stieet would be spoiled if a largoi number were installed. While it is uo doubt a fact that a larger num ber would bo made good use of it ia also troe that oue dozen will prove i-ufficie it. The cans ou Mill street are distributed ill about the same propor tion us iu Bloomsburg, where the ex periment IMS beeu ou trial for some time pa»t aud found to accomplish the übject very nicely.

He still feels the effects of the injury. CONTRACT FOR .HOSPITAL WORK Contract for building two of the five temporary structures at the Hospital for the Insane provided for by a speci al appropriation of. 185,000, have been awarded to Henderson & Gompary of York. The contract price is 122,000 for each of the buildings. These temporary structures grew out of the visit of the Appropriations Ooui mittce of the Legislature to Danville last winter and wore designed to re lieve overcrowding, which bad occas ioned a great deal of harsh oriticism through the State. Tho buildings wero to be five in number, one story high, two hundred feet long and thirty six feet wide. The bnildings were to be fire proof and from a hygienic point of view tliev wero to be models- Tlie hospital trustees do uot approve of the temporary buildings as designa ted by the appropriations committee, but not caring to incur criticism they decided to act npon the suggestions so far as to authorize the erection of two of the buildings whioh seem the best adapted to the hospital needs. The site chosen for the temporary structures is at the rear of the main building,oue ou the male side aud one on the female side of the institution. The roof and sides will be of iron; the wall on tho inside will be studded and plastered. Underneath will be a cellar. Work on the temporary etruc tures will begin immediately in order that they speedily accomplish their object, whioh is to relieve overcrowd ing. When the new hospital at Allen town is completed the Danville in stitution will be relieved of a number of its patients and overcrowding will cease to be factor. Wheu this occurs it is the objeot of tho Trustees to put the temporary buildings to other nse. It is thought that the structures would make very good pavilions far the use of the patieuts. In buildiug therefore they will'be so constructed tiiat tlicy can be very easily remodeled into structures of that sort. Clean Up the Old Canal. Mauy persons find it difficult to bo lieve that onr Borough Council,which all along has shown itself so thorough ly wide awake and progr* ssivc,intouds to lot the bottom of the cauul in its preiont roky and nauseating condi tion lie during tlie Fourth of.l, ly. It wan thought that the matter would be attended to at the last moment aud tho old waterway cleaned up at least ill tin vicinity of Mill sir. el culvert, win nee for a square east and west the old ditch presents its very worst np pear.iuic. Hut Council nt Us special inei t inp Siturriay night fnilul to tnko any actinn on the canal, although it deoided to decorate City Hull for tho fourth iu nu appropriate manner. , The ti'tongs on "Mill Blr 'ft noxt Tues day w ill no doubt gaze with ndmii at ion OH Old City Hall under its artistic dress of flags and like decorations, but what their emotions will h" uliuii they gaze down upou the dirty canal Willi Its mess of garbage and old cans is quito an tier matter. Pooplo are in clined to think that tlm omission was not iu'onilod Siturday night anil that Council will yet decide to clean up at least a portion of the caual for the Foul til. A little work would go a great way toward makiuii things piosentablo. Two or three men iu a day could rake op and cart away the unsightly ac cumulation of rubbish which lines the banks and the bottom, after which a drain conld be opened whioh would carry off the worst of the stagnant wat er. The next thing done should be to in force the Borough ordinance as well as the new rnbbish law and prevent people from using the old canal as a placo for getting rid of their garbage, ashes and other odds and ends which accumulate about the premises. Farmers Face a Difficulty. The farmers who attend the curb stone market by this time have beeu fully informed of the action taken by counoil requiriug them to attend on next Monday morning instead of the morning following, Joly 4th., when Mill street will'be too much crowded to admit of the wagous. The farmers do not dispute the wis dom of changing market day on this oooaßion.but they do uot see how they can arrange to bring a supply of pro duce into town ou Monday morning. Piokiug cherries aud preparing garden truck involves a good deal of work, whioh can not be douo on Saturday if the goods are to be fresh and salable. Therefore, unless they work on Sun day, the farmers declare they will be unable to have a load of produce ready for Monday morniug. J .They take tho view that they should be pormitted to oouie into town Mouilay afternoon and occupy their places along the Mill street curb. A good mauy are uot witli out hope that Couuoil will take this view of the matter and agree to change the hour of market from morniug to afternoon. Iu view of the crowds coin ing to Danville the vendors ill market expect many big otdera for the Fourth of July whioh will have to be filled ou Monday. Morrell—Rleck. Mifß Clara M Rieok aud Walter E. Morr.ll, both of this oity,were united iu holy wedlock yesterday. The nuptial knot was tied by Rev. Dr. M. L, Shiudel at his home, Lower Mulberry street, at 2 o'clock iu the afternoon.

From presout indications Bloonis barg will not lose Dr. W. P. Eveland from tho pastorate of the First Meth odist church, au announcement that will be source of satisfaction to the townspeople generally irrespective of church connections, for few men have evor held a pastorate ill Bloomsburg who have enjoyed the esteem aud re gard iu which Dr. Eveland is held. Tlie recently elected directore of the Williamsport Dickinson Seminary at their mooting Thursday took no aotiou ou the matter of tho presidency of the collego, thinking it uot a propitious time. Regarding Dr. Evelaud's oonrse iu the matter the Williamsport Sun says: "The Rev. Dr. Kvelaud, of Bioorns liurg, who was elected to the presi dency at a meeting of the old board of directors on June 9, declined the elec tion with the request that the new hoard bo free to vote for whom they cared to. Directors who were piasent at the meeting say that tills manly course on the part of Dr. Eveland will certainly not prejudice theoase of Dr. Eveland when the election is held."— Blooiushurg Press.

This prophecy is made as regularly as the advent of the season. Indeed it has come to be recognized as one of the yearly predictions, and the people look for, oxpect and are pre-« pared for it when the time for it ar rives. It has uouie to be suoli a fixture that they would be disappointed were it not made. This year, however, the indications are that despite the predio tious the peach orop will be anutnally heavy,and it is with pleasure and sur prise that one reads news like the fol lowing : "On the 10,000 little three-year-old trees ou Uol. W. F. Reynolds' farm near Hellefoute, there are so many peaches that workmen are pruning them off to prevent breaking down the trees; yet there will be 5000 bushels. Overtrade Crossing. At a meeting of the viowers of the Mitflinville bridge held ou Thursday at the site of the bridge it was decid ed that the bridge will be boilt with an overgrade crossiug of the tracks of the Pennsylvania Railroad. Tho bridge will bo 1421 feet In length and will bo bnilt with a 20 foot road way and a IS foot walk on one side. It will also very probably have a flooring of cement blooks like the new Danvillo bridge and like the Oata wissa bridge will be. It was also found that the abutments could be used for the uow structure, but that it will be necessary to entirely rebuild the piers. New Porch. A br ond verauda is being ereoted at the parsonage of Sliiioh Reformed church, Bloom street, whioh will add very much to the appearanoe of the lioußG as well as to the comfort aud pleasure of the lumateß.
