LUTHEk C. SMITH. Superintendent. ••The Gunner's Mate." "Tho Gunner's Mate" is a naval drama, dealing with tho now American navy. It Is not a war play. There Is no conflict. There are no scenes of battle, no shots are fired. It Is a play of human inferos., with an abundance of good clean comedy to relieve the tension of Its drimatlc story, a story full of episodes, that will appeal to every heart. The play depicts with absolute correctness the life of our gallant sailors on land and at sea. The scenes on ship board are faithful re productions of photographs taken on board of the cruiser New York. The production will be on an elaborate scale. The play Is In four acts and five scenes. The first act Is in a sailors' boarding house In New York city. " The second act shows the gun dock of the New York, the vessel lying at anchor off Tompklns ville, in Now York harbor. The first scene of the third act transpires In the forecastle while the ship Is at sea. and shows the life of our sailors while off dutsv. In this scene specialties are In troduced. Thesillors forecastle band, consisting of mandolins, guitars and violin cello, for the dancers and singers. The scene s one of animation and hilarious fun making. The second scene of tho third act Is In the fire-room of the ship. The discovery has been made that there Is something wrong with one of the boilers, there Is a leak In the back connections. Volun teers are called for to undertake the' hazardous task of repairing the leak. (This actually happened in our navy, and the sailor who volunteered and risked bis life wa ; promoted and award ed a medal of honor). "The Gunner's Mate" volunteers and at the risk of his life repairs the carnage. The scene Is one of strong Int rest, and the surpris ing climax at the end of the act Is a thrilling feature. The fourth act is In the home of the heroine, and her< the exciting story of the play Is brought to a happy end. Rtrletly t'a*h Basinets. On and after today George Fisher will conduct a strictly cash business at bis meat market on Walnnt street.

No matter what their expectations had been, no one who visited Y&nnes' opera house Friday evening was dis.- appointed. The promise made by the Tigers Athletic Club that their eleventh annual ball would be far beyond any thing that the town had seen heretofore in that line were fulfilled to the letter. The decorations represented a full week's work of the members, and be yond question were, with the excellent electrical work, as handsome as were ever arranged in the coal region. The Interior of the hall fairly dazzled the beholder and it Is safe to say that for some time to come it will not be made more handsome than It was on Friday night. The ball itself was another of the usual successes of the club In point of attendance, as well as socially and financially. The grand march at 10 o'clock was led by Master of Ceremonies George Doggett and Miss Ella Meehan. The entire building, except the private apartments of Mr. Yannes, was leased, the cloak, refreshment and toilet rooms being located on the third floor. On Saturday evening a hop was con ducted by the club and another large crowd attended and enjoyed Itself. Tonight has been set apart for the business and professional people, and the desire on the part of this class to enjoy a night with the Tigers Is a sure indication that the final evening of the series will equal Its two predecessors. Foftter and Hazle Not In It. The county commissioners have issued a proclamation giving notice that the townships of Marcy, Newport, Plains, Plymouth and Wilkesbarre have been declared townships of the first class and will take rank as such after March 1 next. An act was passed by the last legislature dividing townships into two classes and providing a new form of government for first-class townships, doing away with the present form. Townships having a population on an , average of 300 to the square mile shall bo known as townships of the first clas9. The details of the act were noted In the TRIBUNE a few months ago. The town ships named will elect their new officers In February. It is somewhat of a surprise that Foster and Hazle townships were not included in the list, but this was due to the fact that according to the 1890 census their population does not average 300 to the square mile. After the next census It is possible that thoy may have the number required. Scranten May Lone Big Mill. At a special meeting of the stock holders of the Lackawanna Iron and Stoel Company on Friday It was voted to increase the capital stock, from 83,750,000 to $25,000,000, so as to enable the company to take advantage of any opportunities that may arise for better ing its conditions, as was given out at the conclusion of the meeting. The vote was strongly In favor of the in crease. Colonel A. D. Blair, one of the stock holders, said there was no Immediate purpose In Increasing tho stock. The question of moving to Buffalo has been discussed, he said, but not any more so than several other propositions. It Is just as likely as not that tho mills will romaln just as thoy are, ho said. Tho city is very much oxerclsed over the possibilities of tho mills being taken away from Scranton. Thoy employ about 3,000 hands, and about one-sixth of the city's population is dependent upon them. Conld Net Identify Body. Tho body of William Cosgrove. for merly of Wilkesbarre, who was one of tho victims of tho battleship Maine, could not bo Identified among the num ber which arrived at Now York several days ago from Havana, on the battle ship Texas and It will, therefore, not arrive In that city for burial, as expect ed. It Is probaflfle that the remains were buried In Arlington cemetery at Washington. The fact that tho body could not be brought there was a severe disappointment to his relatives. Investigating a Mystery. Coroner MeKee has impaneled a jury to inquire Into the mysterious death of John Kuloskl, of Sturmerville, a9 he sus pects foul play. Kuloskl attended a party at Edwardvllle on Christmas night, and the next morning was found badly In jured. Those in the house said he had fallen downstairs. Then It was dis covered that when he went to tho party he had $350 and a revolver. Both money and weapon were missing from from his body. The Gems Dramatic Company plays this week at Passaic, N. J. On account of there being no Sunday trains leaving hero, it was found necessary by tho company to cancel their Saturday even ing engagement, and an announcement to that effect was made during the ren- j dition of "The Double Life" on Friday night. i The cold snap has made strong Ice on the ponds in this section and skaters are enjoying themselves. MINES AND RAILROADS. Some Items of Interest to Workers In These Two Great Industries. A number of Jersey Central Railroad men, having signed the petition of P. F. Murry for a saloon license In Mauch Chunk, Superintendent Wentz, of the Central, has written each signer a personal letter, in which he asks them to withdraw their signatures on the ground that "liquor is one of the greatest curses of railroaders." The interference of the superintendent is resented and there Is much objection on the part of railroaders to withdrawing their names from the petition. Just now there is a demand for the larger sizes of coal and the opportunity to get out all the coal possible is being made. The present cold snap will help increase the demand and altogether the outlook for work during the com ing winter is very bright. Lump, broken and egg are the sizes for which there is most demand and orders are re ceived faster thuu they can be filled. Philip Riley is lying critically ill of cancer at his home iu Luzerne borough. He is well known among railroad men. He helped to build the Lehigh Valley Railroad, and for many years was road master of the Northern division. One of his sons, Patrick, is yardmaster at Coxton, and another is an engineer on the Lehigh Valley. Among the many new orders of the Reading Company which will go Into effect today Is one compelling all mine foremen to examine any one who is In jured under his charge and ascertain 1 the extent and cause of the accident, j They are also required to visit the in jured men from time to time and report their condition. Tho production of anthracite coal for 1899 will be the greatest on record, and at least 47,500,000 tons. December's production is expected to be below that of November, owing to the scarcity of cars and the holidays, and cortainly not over 4,500,000 tons. The Lehigh and Wilkesbarre Coal Company and the Silver Rrook Coal Company have no.filed their employes of an advance of 2 per cent in their wages. Tho Cross Creek Coal Company's em ployes received an advance of 2 percent when they were paid last week. The increase dates from December 1. Beginning today the Lehigh Valley Coal Company will not collect doctors' bills through the office, which has been a custom for many years. Gamewtll System Adopted. The borough council met on Thurs day evening with Messrs. Kline, Davis, ; Smith, Meoh&n, Mulhearn and De | Plerro present. President Kline stated that the object of tbe meeting was to make further investigation into the I various system of fire alarms from whom bids were received. The secre tary read letters from various towns and cities where the Gamewell system is in use recommending it very highly. Mr. Smith offered a resolution author izing the fire committee to draw up a contract with the Gamewell Company. Mr. DePiorro stated that he had a message from Mr. Klley, of Hazleton. who represented a Boston company, withdrawing his bid. Mr. Mulhearn wanted some definite information In regard to the proposition of tho Gamewell Company. The secre tary was unable at the time to supply tho desired information, having loft the bids at home. The resolution after some debate by the members was passed finally. A communication from W. E. Bellas, of the overall factory, was read, in which that gentleman offered to sell a motor to tho borough for $350. Tho conditions give tho borough the right to take the motor and keep it on trial for ten days and If not satisfactory to return it to the company in as good condition as when it left their factory. No action was taken. ' Council will meet this evening in reg ular session. New Terminal for Lehigh Valley. It Is stated that the Lehigh Valley Railroad Company has secured what Is known as Black Tom Island on the Communlpaw shore, N. J., for a pas senger terminal and that within a year trains will be running to It and a ferry communication established with New I York city. At present the passenger trains use the Pennsylvania Railroad tracks and depot. It is said that plans have been prepared for an elaborate train shed and passenger depot on Black Tom Island and that work on the building will soon begin. The proposed road to the island is being cleared. The road will bo wido enough for four main tracks and a number of sidings for the storage of cars. Deeds were filed a few days ago, transferring Black Tom Island from the National Storage Company to the Standard Oil Company, and it Is said that at the proper time the property will be transferred to tho Lehigh Valley Company. Tho forry terminal at New York will be located as near as possible to the Battery, so as to be convenient to all the surface and elevated roads. COURT HOUSE MOVINGS. CHANGES THAT TAKE PLACE AT THE , COUNTY SEAT TODAY. Three Officii Affected—The New Offlcleli end Their AttMlßtentn—Old Clerks Who Will Retire— Diisgreement Among; the Republican Commissioners. From the Wllkesbarre Record. Monday will be the annual moving day at the court house, and it will mark the departure of a few office-holders from some snug berths and a number of changes In some desirable clerclal posi tions. The offices that will be affected are the register's, treasurer's, and the commissioners'. In two of these offices —the register's and treasurer's—there will be a complete change in the force of clerks, while in the commissioners' office there is still a cloud of uncertainty hanging over the disposition of the clerkships, owing to a disagreement between Commissioners Ilay and Jones over two or three of the important | places In the office. Hiram P. Kuntz, who will turn the management of the register's office over to his successor, John Mainwarnlng, will return to Hazleton and will prob bably again enter the employ of the coal company with which he served before he was chosen register. Register Kuntz will retire from office with the hearty good wishes of all who have had busi ness with the office during his incum bency. He has been a capable official and gave the county an excellent ad- ministration. Register-elect Mainwaring has select ed an entirely new set of clorks, all of whom are peculiary fitted for the posi tions they have been chosen to fill. Mr. Mainwaring's clerks will be as follows: Deputy registor—-Robert P. Robinson, the retiring county treasurer. Clerk—David J. Linskill, Plymouth. Marriage license clerk—Charles B. ! Smith, Pittston. Doputy at Hazleton—Hiram P. Kuntz. Mr. Mainwaring will retain the present deputy register, Mr. Poettlger, until he and his assistants become familiar with the duties of the office. Treasurer Robert P. Robinson, who will turn the funds of the county over to the custody of Treasurer-elect Kirk endall, has, as has been his custom in the various positions he has filled, givon the county efficient service. As Mr. Robinson will follow his deputy to the register's office, the only member of the , present staff in the treasurer's office I who will leave the court house Is George > Reed. Mr. Reed will not leave the ! office, however, until April 1, Treasurer elect Klrkendall having decided to retain him until his appointees aro capable of carrying on the work with out a hitch. Mr. Klrkendall's assistants are: Deputy—James P. Gorman, Hazleton. Clerk—George Kirkendal), Dallas. From what can bo learned, there is an unfortunate disagreement between Commissioners Hay and Jones over the selection of their clerks. The commis sioners have held sevoral meetings, but up to yesterday they were still at log gerheads, being unable to agree on a deputy and two of the important cler ical positions. As Mr. Driesbach has decldod to leave the office it becomes the duty of the commissioners to fill the place and their efforts to select Mr. Dreisbach's successsor was the first cause of the breach. Mr. Jones favors Thomas Potors, who at present is filling the next placo to the deputy, promoted to the vacancy. Mr. Hay, however, is in favor of Mr. Woodruff, another clerk. Were this the only difference between them an agreement would not seem so remote, but the commissioners also disagree on the disposition of one or two other clerkships. Mr. Jones believes he should be allowed to fill the place now held by George 'Henry, but Mr. Hay again thinks otherwise. The commissioners will hold another meeting and endeavor to compromise their differences. The opinion among the politicians Is that Messrs. Hay and Jones will not agree and that one or the other of them will combine with Commissioner-elect Finn and select the corps of clerks, county solicitor, etc. Should such come to pass the Democrats might secure a place or two in the office, as It Is not likely that Mr. Finn would cast his vote with either Jones or Hay without being given tho priviloge of selecting a few of bis friends. Of the present board of commission ers, the only one who will retire from office is John Guiney, who has been tho minority member of tho board the past three years. Mr. Guiney retires with the confidence of all who have had official business with him. Ho will de vote all his time heroaftor to his busi ness. BIRTHS.
