Manuel Cas tano, a member of the cast playing "Slaves of the Mine" at the Grand op era, house, and whose stage name is Hugh Doherty , took part in a bit or real tragedy Wednesday night in (which Detective Sergeant Dennehy and Detective Frey played their roles as detectives after the most; approved fashion. - ,,;,' v - "A complaint; was received from Banbury that Castano was , wanted there for hiring a dress suit in Jhat place and forgetting to return (t. The detectives, armed with a warrant and a description of their man, started for the opera house. '-:::. , The officers secured seats in the f rbnt row and proceeded to closely scrutinize each actor as he came on to do his stunt. After watching . the play for some time thejoffleers decjded that Hugh Doherty, a husky miner with, a ; red ' wig, ; was their man. Hugh bad a strenuous part in the show, but it didn't call for a dress suit and the officers were' almost, afraid ,they had missed .their cue.;:... ', .. Towards the close of , the play there is a scene In which one of the female actors invited .one Jim Reed to have his supper. . ...""Iteed's lines are i : some thing like" thisT, ;"t would thaI lcould accept your hospitality, dear v heart, tout I have lost, me appetite." , -At this, juncture Hugh enters "rear I," and .frantically exclaims, "I ain't lost mine; I'd lose my reputation first." ' ; Sergeant Denneby grabbed his com rade by the coat sleeve., "Did you hear that?' he whispered. "Well thafs him all ; right, and he'll lose his reputation in about twenty, minutes." . v , ; , The officers made their way behind the. scenes. After f ailing. oyer( a bank of . stage -grass and setting the stage thunder going, they brought, up in the presence of a bit , of stage . furniture and sat down to wait the final .curtain. Both alighted on Hugh as he was de positing his papier-mache miner's pick in the property box ; and ihtro duced themselves. After considerable telephoning Hngh paid the officers $20 to turn over to the- Danbury chief for the jowner of the dress suit and was jallowed his freedom.- . , FOUNDERS AND PATRIOTS.

All the po licemen admitted that, not because the incident happened in court that it was courting anything, but because it did not have its collar on in the. presence of so many , cops. The bare Idea of being in such company without a col lar was nothing less nor : more ,! than taking a short cut to canine oblivion. Thjs one was gaily cantering around 'the green in the freshness of 9 o'clock, when the janitor was raking what be said- should have been beautifully hay, but, alas, was the debris made by the storm of last - night. ' It coursed around ' and around the green until one would think it should have, a bad headache, and then its canine cu riosity took it -into the city hall. For a moment it stood on the steps looking at the janitor as If trying to ascertain if he wag a Thorns "or a Lynch man, and in it went, walked into its own death trap. , But, that is the way with some dogs. Even Commissioner La- hey's bull terrier with the inquisitive nose and the black tail is thus affiict ed. Its curiosity is said to be abnor- mal. :V1-' . ' ''" ; Upon entering the court room the dog jumped on all the cops, ..but it seemed .to attract no particular notice until it Jumped on Officer Allen. "Fer got yer collar, hey?" saidi the officer, tipping" the .wink to '; Officer ; Brickel, who in his day was quite a dog fan cier. "Poor thing, f ergot yer collar.': said Allen again. Brickel got hold of the dog's nose, but let go immediately, for it snapped at his hand. Then Al len tried to get the string of his club over its neck, but the dog ; was , too quick for nim.V It snapped at the of ficer. Of course this did it no good; if anything it only hastened its end. The officer got around it again and this time Allen managed to get its head in the string. Then he twisted the club until , the .string . was quite tight and he pulled the dog toward the doggery; in the lock-up, where Its life will .be1 extinguished this evening unless it Is claimed by someone, who will be immediately prosecuted for having , a collarless canine. , E0AHD OF FIUAHCE SHOCK AND BURNS ON TROLLEY Joseph Skelly is Treated to an Un pleasant Experience in Westville. New Haven, Sept 18. While wait ing for the Westville car bound for the city to start, Joseph Skelly, 20 years old, 11 day street, was ' severely shocked by electricity and' sustained a painful burn as a result of the car be ing charged with "juice." Mr Skelly was leaning 'against on6 of the iron uprights that support the roof of the car at. ,9:15 last night and while . talking to , the conductor he touched the upright with his hand. In stantly, he- was shocked and his face came into contact with the iron1 and a spot about ; two inches long and a half inch wide was biS?ne on his neck. ; This is onljr one of several similar occurrences that have happened on the cars during a wet! spell : and It be hooves people to beware of the metal trimmings on -: trolleys in rain storms or when the metal is wet.

The board of finance last night voted to adopt the recommendation of the board of , public works- to recom mend to the board of aldermen the proposition of installing high pressure water service on the hilly sections of the city, such as North Willow street, Washington street, Town Plot ' and West Side , bill. The sum asked for the preliminary work is $1,500, and the board of finance voted thai tbis sum could be had. The city is enabled to issue high pressure water v bonds for this work, and it seems that this will be necessary to carry out the ifline f thA Htv ATierlnAfir. It i not thought that this will be necessary, however; for it has been round tnat oy connecting the two distributing reser voirs on the East Mountain the high pressure required can be had. Here is the letter of the committee appoint ed, to inquire Into the matter: 4 ; Honorable Board of Commissioners of .Finance: " , Gentlemen: It appearing to the com missioners of public works, after in-VRsHsra-HoTi of various netitions and hearings 'glren to interested citizens and taxpayers, that the time has come when the city should furnish a public supply of portable water in districte which, on account of their elevation, cannot be supplied from the present Kvstem. said commissioners have ap pointed the mayor and city engineer a committee to investigate tne uesi way in which to provide such a high service water supply. The work of this committee will in volve quite a little surveying and pre paration of maps and plans. It is de sirable that plans should be prepared as soon as possible in order, that a report may be made by the committee and that recommendations from the board of public works may reach the board of aldermen not later than De cember 31 of this year. If this recom mendation be approved by - the . board ef fildormMi. f win mit: the- city in position to lef contracts x for pipe in January or February,, at wmcn time pipe can often be bought to better ad vantage than at any , other time of the year, . - : The committee, finds, however; that if t tin monev at it command with which to pay the cost of this investi- gation, nor does it seem aavisaDie ior the city .to issue any of the high ser vice bonds until after actual construc tion has ben determined upon and orders placed for materials. ' Consequently, taking this view of h citnatirtTi. ther seems to be no bet ter plan than that the board of alder men should make a small appropria tion for this preliminary works , - E. G.

Anthracite Collieries Closed. PHILADELPHIA, Sept 16. Seven anthracite collieries operated by the Pennsylvania Railroad company in the Wyoming, Shamokin and Schuylkill districts are closed down, , and about 20,000 men and boys are idle as a re sult. The restriction of production is made necessary by the fact that the steam sizes of coal have been piling op lately, and, while there are full or ders for the prepared sizes, It is thought better to close the mines.
