Susquehanna - In the belief that the union boiler makers, who were recently locked out had been planning an attack on the non-union workingmen besides, perhaps, destroying the plant, the Erie railroad officials have a force of armed detectives constantly on guard and barbed wire has been strung along the fences and buildings and through the yards. The company erected bunks in the shops for the workingmen they imported. Chief of Police McMahon, of the Susquehanna force, indefinitely postponed his trip to St. Louis. A number of Susquehanna boilermakers have been offered positions at other points and will move away with their families. So far quietude has, as a rule, prevailed. Some of the "imports" had trouble among themselves, caused by drinking, fighting, etc., and two of them were arrested and brought to the Montrose jail.

News Brief: Men who would dress in the newest and highest style must wear brown leather overcoats this winter. The rage for [the] automobile is responsible for these overcoats but the truly fashionable are wearing them even when they deign to walk. Leather overcoats will never wear out and so should recommend themselves to those who are not enormously rich.
