W. M. RAPSHER.
Lehlghtnn, Oot. 24, 1874.
linwScssncss tn Scranton.
Scr.mton, Pa., Dec. 0. At tho pres.
ent timo ajluicklng state of lawless
ness exists. in Sc.antoiin lid vicinity. A
terrlblo murder was perpetrated about
,11 o'clock last night In the suburbs of
tlio city, at a placo called the Notch, a
deep gorgo between high mountnln,
wheio tho coal treasures of the valley
havo their north-western termination.
The Notch Is tho dividing lina between
tho mining population of Scranton nnd
the farming districts of Wyoming nnd
Luzerne counties. The victim of last
night's tragedy was a farmer named
Klein, who, with his son, had been to
the.clty to dNpose of somn hay and po
tatoes, and was returning to his home
In Newton township. Ho had two
teams; ono driven by himself and the
other by his son, who Is only about 12
years of age.
On reaching the Notch ho was sur
prised by six met, who dashed out of
tho brush on the roncf side, seized his
his horses, nnd dragged hlra out of his
wagon. Ho begged of them to spare
him, but Ids' entreaties wero met with
blasphemy and kicks as well ns with
blows of a murderous club, no fought
desperately for his life but was finally
overpowered. Seeing that his assail
ants did not intend to show him any
mercy ho cried In despairing tones.
"ForGod'ssakespare tny boyl" These
wero tho last words spoken by Farmer
Klein. A pistol ball tltrough his heart
let out his life blood. The reffians then
hastily robbed him and darted iuto the
woods. The boy sat in tho wagon In
the rear, tlio unite witness ot tlio terri
b'e tragedy. Ho was transfixed with
fear, aud could neither move nor speak
fur some minutes after ho was dlscov
eied by it farmer who happened to be
passing In that dliectlou. Tho mur
dered man was carried home, but no
trace of his assassins has yet been dis
covered. This morning a miner named Philip
Uannan was arreited for attempting to
take thu life of Alexander Craig, an en
gineer In the employ of the Falrlawn
Coal Company. Uannan, dressed in
his miner's suit, entered tho engine
house, where Craig was at work, and
demanded a light; the latter, not sus
pecting anything, turned around to
procure a match, and as he did so,liau
uan drew from his coat a short ax, and
with It made a murderous sweep at tlio
engineer's head. Craig fortunately
evaded the murderous blow, and engag
ed In a fearful struggle with his would
be assassin, who was subsequently ar
rested and committed to prlsou to await
It U'supposed that tho attempt is tho
result tf an organized plan, as tho man
ner In which tho men wero ousted from
the Falrlawn Colliery still rankles In
their breasts, and they aro determined
to be revenged ou those who supplanted
them, Bauuau was employed In tho
Pine .Brook Colliery, a short distant
from Falrlawn, but ho was no doubt
detailed to do the murderous deed.
Tho Incapacity ot tho authorities to
deal with such daring ruffians aud bring
them'to justice encourages the outlaws
to ply their murderous work fearlessly.
Wo aro at the commencement of a hard
winter, which will doubtless lead to
robbery.and murder In an extraordinary
degree. Wlthiu the past few nights
some of tho principal stores on our lead
ing thoroughfares havo been broken
Into and robbed. In every Instance the,
burglars havo escaped with their boo
ty. Our chief of Police Is under $5,000
ball for alleged murder; our Mayor Is
under, f 500 ball for pejury;an4 six of
the members ot our school board-, or a
majority of its entire number are un
der f 18,000 ball for alleged malftsance
in office. They are to bo tried at the
January Court of Quarter Sessions,
theso cases are ot all recent occurrence.
If the present cindtilou of affairs con
tinue much longer, the people of Scran
ton will for self protection and for tho
protection of their properly be com
pelled to form vlgllanco committees.
Even uow every man Is armed, and
every man't liouso Is an arsenal on a
a small t-cale, In many quarters vlgll
anco committees are already talked of,
and wo may expect a season of red
handed vengeauco before' pprlng. N.
A man had better havo a mlllstonn
tied to Ms neck aud bo cast Into the
sea, than to prpmlse to marry a Texas
girl aud then re.'uso, The whole coun.
try turns out to hunt tilm, aud ho is
generally, left to grow up with a tree.
A Free Fight In tt Church.
At about 10 o'clock on Tuesday night
a disturbance occuricd lu tho Ebenezer
African M. E. Church, which caused
great excitement. Somo two thousand
colored persons and others congregated
about tho Church and adjacett thorough
fares. Sume dissatisfaction has cxlslol
among tho members and trustees of the
church lu reference to certain portions
of tho dlscllpllno, ono of which was
against tlio independent action of tho
'singing bands," who have their lead
ers, said leaders having much to say on
tho affairs and discipline of the church.
Theso "singing bands,'. It Is alleged,
have largely Interfered with the pro
gress niid good standing of the African
M. E. Churches, nnd the majority of
the congregations are opposed to then),
Tho refractory conduct of. officers ot
tho Ebeuezer Church found vent lu
open violence ou Tuesday evening,
hastened by tho fact that its pastor,
Mr. Johnson, had "split a class" and
relieved Its leader. Tins much Incen
sed tho turbulent minority in tho con
gregation, among whom wero trustees
of the church, nnd open violence was
threatened. Plans had been put. on;
foot by the disaffected members to maka
nu attack on the church last night, pro
bably reinforced by insurgents--frqni,
another African M. E. cburch'-.arqiricl.'
tho corner upon Sharp street. jQnf'?
Tuesday night a large meetiug of 'thq
officer.'; and member was held for the
purpose of considering tho "spiritual
and temporal welfare of tho church."
Tho meellug progressed ns usual with
prayer and sluglng, By request the
pastor commenced reading tho manual
or dlslpllna of tho church, amid ejacu
lations both favorablo and tho con
trary. A disturbance seemed inevltablo, the
fact of which trausplred vueu Thomas
Short jumped up ou a back seat, and
flourishing a chair, yelled out: "Judgo
Gllmor will havo to sottlo this!" A
scene of the wlldesti.coufuslou eusuctl,
culminating !n'aHrvely melee. Some
of tho congregation ran out Into tlio
street, shoutlug, ".Vurderl" &o."
which quickly brought a number of
policemen to tho sceue. Insldo of tho
church chairs and other avallablo furni
ture were being freely used, aud sev
eral persons were badly bruised, but
pone, ns Is learned, wero seriously In
jured. Officer Brown upon entering
tlio church was struck and knocked
