Sensation for a Bemnant of
AN ASSAILANT OF MUBPHY
Stakes His Word as a Minister That
Francis and Ed. Put Up a Job.
HE IS TAKEN TO TASK YIGOBOUSLY,
And the Audience at Silver Lake Grove
Join in Murphy's Defense.
OTHEB LITE CAMPAIGN AFTERMATH
The temperance people held a very lively
if not absolutely war-like meeting at Silver
Lake Grove yesterday afternoon, and by
speeches or vigorous comments blamed all
from the Republican party down to T. Ed.
ward Murphy for the defeat of the amend
ment. Some, evidently, wanted to kick
themselves for mistakes they had made.
Others took a more conservative view, and
blamed no one, but said it was best that it
was defeat, not victory. But the enthusiasm
of all for prohibition bad not seemed to die
ont at all, and it this one little meeting is to
be taken as an index of the stand taken by
Pros., lively things are yet to be expected
from their side of the house.
Rev. J. W. McKay, ot the Cumberland Pres
byterlan Church, said:
What defeated the amendment was lack of
generalship. The whole thing was too much
of a grandmother's campaign. The men at the
head of the affair were no good. The affairs
in Pittsburg could not have been more botched
and bungled. We can never have the power
until we have a solid body, a party. We have
fought the whisky element of the whole United
States. No party Is responsible. We ourselves
snould have a party, and fight on the line of
the saloon alone. We have not had things
an trcrvr accusation.
Mr. Francis Murphy got up and talked
against prohibition, and when he saw that the
people rose up he and his son held a council
of war, and it was decided that T. Edward
Murphy should talk for the amendment, while
Ins father was against it a kind of a good-Lord-good-split-hoof
arrangement. The very
day after the election T. Edward Murphy con
gratulated the liquor people on their victory.
This is one way 1
I say again that we will never carry the
amendment until we get a party behind it.
Applause. We can never harmonize the Re
publican and Democratic temperance people.
We must have a platform that will take in the
Republican temperance people and the Demo
cratic temperance people, and hold the bal
ance of power in the coming election If we
stand as Independent Republicans and Inde
pendent Democrats, we will pull against each
I did not use to make political speeches, and
maybe some things I have said were better if
unsaid; but I could not take back anything I
have said and would not if I could.
After the speaker sat down, the audience
was all bustle and it was evident that the
raid on Francis Murphy and his son had
Etirred up a hornets' nest Soon Joseph
Hunter arose, and, in a moment, all eyes
were turned toward him. Slowly swerving
into a speaking attitude and controling his
emotion, he said:
I rise to defend Francis Murphy and his son
Edward. I owe to Francis Murphy my salva
tion from being a drunkard. I love the man
because he is a Christian man. I love his son?
Hove his family, and I stand hereto defend
them against the unwarranted language of the
reverend gentleman, whom I also respect Ed
ward Murphy is as firm a friend of the amend
ment as any in the land.
ALL DUE TO THE TRICK.
If it had not been a trick of the Republican
party in putting the election on June 18, instead
of In November, the regular time for election,
we would have won. This is the view Edward
Murphy took of it, and I cannot blame him. I
pleaded with his father to come out for the
amendment, and Edward pleaded with him;
but they said it was no use.
The Republican party knows that it was the
votes of both the liquor men -and the Prohib
itionists that gave President Harrison his ma
jority in Pennsylvania, that gave him his ma
jority in New York, and that placed him in the
Prcsidental chair. They were looking forward
to their own interests. It was a trick. We can
blame no one, and as it is a tnck I consider it
such, and look confidently to the future.
"When Mr. Hunter had taken his seat,
amid deafening applause, Chairman George
H. Garber arose and said that it was time
the audience was dispersed by the benedic
tion and the doxology.
As he walked down the steps from the
hall, Eev. J. W. McKay said, in reply to
eome remark abont his'attack on Edward
Murphy: "I have made the assertion; now
let him refute it"
Rev. C. V. Wilson, of Emory M. E.
Church, the first speaker, stopped and al
lowed the surplus strain of the audience to
escape, as it was dangerous to not give the
safety valve a chance to carry it off. He
also defended Francis Murphy and his son.
This began to "raise steam" again, but he
suddenly veered, took up the subject of the
day in Very forcible language, and advanced
eome interesting ideas of the present situa
tion and the causes of the defeat of the
amendment. He said:
DOWN TO EEAL SEASONS.
The only reason why the amendment was de
feated was because votes enough were not cast
for it It did not lack 183,000 honest votes of a
majority; but there were not votes enough
cast We did not know our relative strength.
We did not know who were our friends, and
who our enemies. Now we know them, and
how many votes to depend on. Now we know
that it is necessary to convert 60,000 or 70,000
votes: to show them the license law is wrong,
and prohibition is right; that high license is
all wrong; that low license is likewise wrong.
Last Sunday thero was a largexrowd here;
now there are not near as many. Many of them
thought it their duty to be here, to snow voters
the stand they had taken. Now they are at
home or elsewhere, but they are Prohibition
ists just the same.
I would not have prohibition in Pennsylvania
with 183,000 majority against it It could not
be enforced, and could not profit the cause. I
would not if I could, lay a hand on any man
and say you must vote for the amendment
"The last vote in my precinct was a young
man who said to me I can't vote with you. I
don't think it is the thing at the present time.
This same young man wanted someone to
vouch for him that he was a proper person to
vote. I vouched for him, knowing he would
vote against us; for we want none of temper
ance, unless it can be brought about in a fair
way; we will never descend to trickery to gain
God s cause. We have believed it was God's
work, and it was, and is yet I feared through
out the eampaign that in our haste to bring
about temperance we might forget tho word of
God and attempt by man's agencies to outrun
THE PABAMOUNT QUESTIONS
The question now confronts us all, to be an
swered in some practical, worthy way, How are
we going to get the votes we need to win? Arc
we going to send out more literature? The
country is already soaked with literature to
use a homely illustration as tbe fields in
spring are often soaked with lingering snows.
Shall we have meetings? The saloon makes
itself more potent, if not more attractive, than
mere lectures can be. We have all got to be
apostles of temperance, teaching by precept
Dot only,, but by tbe force of example.
I have this to say, in tbe aggrecate.of the late
campaign: Among those who voted against
the amendment there were men with much of
religion in their hearts, who, for selfish, mis
taken motives, which they sought to construe
into liberal and generous promptings, were not
yet willing to help stamp out a great evil.
Home of our sessions, even, said to their
churches that they had better be a little quiet
on this subject Who was it that worked out
this sentiment in the churches, though? Those
who liked their beer.
Now, if we waDt to make votes, we have got
to work as well as pray to do it Don't let us
be discouraged. In due season we shall reap
what we have sown and are yet to sow. Remember-that
It we had carried this State, bv
the bare E.000 to 111,000 which would have been
the best possible majority for prohibition at
present the workers would all have sat back
in their chairs, taken their ease, and, in two
years, the means brought about tor the saving
of all these souls from the drunkard's death
might have been obliterated by that corrupt
power which'never slumbers, no matter how
much moralists may sleep.
Now, here is a fact fur us to weigh well and
consider: The reform we seek cannot be
brought to pass until the unmitigated curse of
intemperance is wiped out of our National
Capital. Uncle Sam himself Is now soaked in
whisky. We must face that fact Very well;
we can do so. We yet hold the balanco of
power in politics. If a man wants to be Con
gressman we can, in most instances, make him
such, or forestall his ambition. We can make
sure, then, that he pledges to do his duty for
the right, or else we can make sure to see that
bis political grave is dug; and that is just what
we must do.
ONLY A BAD BULL RUN.
Rev. B. F. Beazell Predicts That Ibo Army
of Prohibition Will Rnlly ns tbo Union
Did Some Terr Striking Statement! of
Rev. B. F. Beazell, of the Oakland M. E.
Church, preached last evening on "A Bull
Run Defeat," it being a discourse on the re
sult of the amendment campaign. His
text was I. Samuel, xiv., 0. Among other
things, he said:
Defeat always stings. Menlikotobe on the
winning side. But there are defeats that mean
ultimate success, as there are victories that
defeat the victors. This is far from being a
Waterloo defeat It is onr Bull Run, which
means that rallying from it we shall come to
our Gettysburg: then to tho exhausting
Wilderness contest and finally to the Appo
mattox of assured victory.
It is surprising how many gentlemen of the
pulpit the press, and of politics who before the
election couldn't find time to even formulate
an opinion, much less express it are now fa
voring us with formulas on tho lesson of the
hour. They knew exactly how it would go,
and they know what the status ot prohibition
is to be in tho future.
I have made and make no claim to superior
wisdom. I have, however, had much to say
and do throughout the contest and specially
want to say a word at its close. Many foolish
things are being said by both sides in the heat
of the excitement of victory and defeat "The
Brooks law must be wiped out," say the liquor
men. "Our defeat is chargeable to the
treachery of political leaders," say some Pro
hibitionists. Nonsense and worse. In truth
the Republican party has dealt honorably with
us in this whole matter. Men of all parties
have been free to follow their own inclination.
Conservative Prohibitionists felt that we
were handicapped from the start Wo would
not have waged this contest at this time if we
could possibly have avoided it High license
is just being tried, and is by its friends thought
to be very effective, especially in our two
largo cities. I believe it to be a stupendous
fraud as a temperance measure, and it will
soon be so demonstrated. But tens of thou
sands of sound temperance people believe in
it, and want to see it fully tried. These would
otherwise have been for prohibition in this
contest Then think of our'mixed population.
Our State is a cluster of nationalities. More
than 25 different languages are spoken. .The
habits and tastes ot the vast majority of those
naturally array them with the drink traffic.
Again, not only has the daily press of the
State been cither neutral or covertly or openly
with the saloon, but the pulpits of only two or
three of the chief denominations have been
constant and bold in. their support of the
Notwithstanding these difficulties we fought
a courageous fight and are in prime shape for
gaining the final victory.

were dazed with the figures and never thought
to look at the meaning!
There are 67 counties in the State. Of these.
9 gave a majority for prohibition of over
60,000. Seven counties, viz: Pbiladelpliia, Alle
gheny, Berks, Lancaster. Schuylkill, Montgom
ery and Lehigh give an aggregate majority
against the amendment of 186,000 In round num
bers. In other words, seven counties of the
State overbalance the other CO. Figures, it is
said, will not lie. They will, if you let them.
They need to be watched closely. The result
as applied to the State seems overwhelming. As
interpreted by counties, it is seen to be highly
encouraging. It is 60 for, 7 against Some say
this points to local option as our only hope. I
do not so read it Local option is too narrow
and transitory in its scope. It is selfish. It
says: "We will take care of ourselves. You
may go to ruin if you.choose." "They that are1
strong ought to bear tbe infirmities of the
weak," is the scriptural method. The country
must help the city, else there is no help for it
The country boys make the city men, and the
fathers and mothers must not neglect their
children. Cities, towns, villages, counties have
mutual interests. They are as Longfellow's

As sure as there is a conscience in man, and
sympathy with God, the' 60 counties of this
great Commonwealth can be aroused and rallied
to blot out the shame of the other seven. What
a splendid record our neighboring counties

Democratic Grceno is on the list for pure

self, and Washington as well. Old Westmore
land, "tbe mother of us all," that used to love
strong drink so ardently, is In line. Beaver,
with her cluster of flourishing towns, declares
strongly against rum. And so on and on north
west, with hardly an exception, until Erie is
reached, which joins tbe opposition bv only a
light majority. Courage, neighbors; we must
have your sympathy and your help. One of
these days old Allegheny will stand upon her
feet, sober and self-respectful.
But, gentlemen of the opposition, the victory
of the hour.is yours. The appeal to the ballot
is in your favor, and, 1 judge, fairly. Let there
be no whimpering among the defeated. 1 de

over your success. If we had carried the day
by even a light majority, we would have rung

for our struggle was and is chiefly in their be

hope has now fled would have been there. Men
anxious to break tbe bonds of dreadful habit
would have leaped for joy.
THE' CONTRAST ALLUDED TO.
Tho companions of your rejoicing we all
know. The maker, the seller, the man power
less to quit drinking and the young man just
learning. That most pitiablo' object, tho man
who excuses his connection with the traffic be
cause his bread and butter is in it will be glad.
The thoughtless who craves money, regardless
of how it is gotten, will rejoice together with
the inmate of the house of shame. But "to the
victor belong the spoils." The spoils of this
triumph and of the business which won it are
yours, not ours. With success comes also re
sponsibility. The amendment advocates
dreaded more than defeat, the responsibility
of success. They believe in the prohibition of
the manufacture and public sale of liquor,
not as an casy.solntion of a difficult social and
economic problem, but as the right and ulti
mately the most effective solution. Ours was
the appeal of society against the saloon. The
saloon triumphs. The voice of the seven
drowns out the voice of the sixty. The saloon's
appeal to voters was to vote down the amend
ment on behalf of "personaT liberty," "lower
taxation," "sobriety," and such like desirable
things. The appeal was granted. The author
ity and responsibility is with yoo, friends of
the opposition. Your policy is to prevail.
You are our lawgivers ot the next few years.
AVo submit gracefully. The majority must
rule. We will uo more. We will help you to
fulfill your golden promises. Then, when onr
lease of authority comes as it certainly and
speedily will come we shall confidently expect
your submission and co-operation. For, as

Lessons of tho Recent Cnmpnlcn Drawn bj
Rev. David McAIIi.tcr.
ReT. David McAllister, of the Eighth
Street Reformed Presbyterian Church,
preached yesterday afternoon on the lessons
to be drawn from the recent defeat He
said that the reverse of last Tuesday ought
to inspire the people with more enthusiasm,
and that more was accomplished than at
first evident ore the surface ; that the sub
mission of the amendment to the people
was a source of great education, and added :
The best possible thing that could be dose
would be to establish McCaU missions,
similar to those in Paris, in different parts of
the cities, where young men could find, enter
tainment and receive enlightenment on the true
Tirincinles of nrohlbitlon and tret the. idea that
it is an Infringement of their' pcrsonaLI iberty

THE (3AUSE OF THF DEFEAT.
Rev. T. J. Leak, of Allegheny, Explains it
Ho Believes It Wns Ball Ran and That
Victory Will Follow Some Day.
The North Avenue M. E. Church, Alle
gheny, was crowded last night with.an audi
ence that came to hear Rev. T. J. Leak's ser
mon on ".Lessons From the Defeat." His
text was Mathewxxvii:21;"The Governor an
swered and said unto them, whether of the
twain will ye that I rejease unto you? They
He called attention first' to the fact thai
there has been for some weeks a conflict
throughout the State which was legislative,
in its character and also involved a great
moral question that could not .be ignored
by the Church. Hence it had received
more or less attention from the pulpit. He
Tho conflict closed on Tuesday last with an
overwhelming majority vote against tho posi
tion generally taken by the Christian people of
tne State. In the presence of such a defeat
some questions crowd themselves upon our
minds, the first of which is, were we wrong as
Christian people, in the position that we took?
Weanswer.no. Our judgment may not have
been perfect but Kansas -had adopted a pro
hibitory amendment; so bad Iowa, but she had
been cheated out of it; Ohio had come very
near to it, and we thought that the moral and
Christian element of Pennsylvania were strong
enough to carry such a movement or amend
ment In the State. The result oroved that we
were mistaken, but the great majority against
us does not prove that wo wore in the wrong.
Jesus Christ was sadly
IN THE SIINOBITY
when tho people cried for Barabbas. Religious
martyrs have been in tbe minority when they
have been burned a't'tbe stake. Martin Luther
was in tho minority at the Diet of Worms.
John Wesley was in the minority when being
refused the pulpit of the Established Church,
he was compelled to preach from his father's
tombstone. Was Jesus Christ wrong? Let.the
400,000.000 Christians in the world answer.
Were the martyrs frong? Let us answer in
the midst of our religious charities. Was
Martin Luther wrong? Let the success of
modern Protestantism answer. Was Jolw'
Wesley wrong? Let the 4,000,000 communi
cants or 20,000,000 adherents of .Methodism m
this country answer.
Time, with its wondrous changes, has
proved these men to have been right, though
in their day they were in the minority. Time
will vindicate the men who voted for the pro
hibitory amendment on last Tuesday.
Another question is. Were the time, labor
and money expended during the cam Dai en-bv
the Prohibitionists wasted? They were given J
office by them, to add to his business or in any
way to contribute to his selfish interests. All
was done for the benefit of others. Therefore
none of these were wasted. The men who
gave them were made larger, better and nobler
by their gifts and brought nearer to Him and
made more like Him who gave Himself for
us that He might redeem us from all iniquity,
so that in themselves they receive full compen
sation for all their outlay. Then they sowed
undying seed that in the future must bring,
forth an abundant harvest
THE CHURCH TOTEES.
As pastor I learn this lesson, that it is the
men who are earnestly engaged in church
work and living near to God who ought to be
relied upon in a great moral contest Some
church members undoubtedly voted against the
amendment: but, so far as my observation goes,
they were not the men that stand by the re
ligious work of the church and are noted for
their religious zeal. Hence the lesson that comes
to tbe church is that if she would do her best
moral work she must be spiritually alive.
From the present outlook it would seem as if
our next move on temperance legislation
should be for local option, as last Tuesday's
vote demonstrated that large areas of our
State are ready for it. but whatever
may be our next move there is no
question about the final result Our
war for the Union started with the Bull's Run
defeat but we finally reached Gettysburg and
Appomattox. So in our effort at Constitutional
Erohibitiou we have already met our Burl's
:un defeat but this should awaken our ener
gies to press forward to future victories until
an Appomattox of peace and victory shall win
our State to temperance, prosperity aud happi-
K0T YET DESTROYED.
Dr. Georso Claims That Temperance Has
Received a Stimulus Regret nt the feet
Back His Evening Tnlk.
Yesterday afternoon the Eev. H. h.
George, D. D., President of Geneva Col
lege, gave a very pointed talk in the Cen
tral (Allegheny) Reformed Presbyterian
Church, In which he dwelt upon "The Elec
tion Defeat a Stimulus to Better Worjc for
Prohibition." Hev took for a text, "Cast
down but not destroyed,' and said:
The cause of God is the same always, and
may expect similar treatment in ail ages.
When the apostle was attempting to establish
the gospel in Corinth he records an experience
which has had many parallels. So confident
was he in tho righteousness and ultimate
surccss of his cause, when he alluded to tho
difficulty, he spoke half a sentence in sadness
and the other half in confident joy. There is
an inner force in truth and right which will
rise again. The Christian life is a story of
triumphs achieved through adversity. The
reason why we are cast down and not
destroyed said the Doctor, "is because our
time and God's time for tbe overthrow of the
liquor evil did not agrae. We had hoped that
tbe intelligence, virtue, philanthropy and
Christian faith of the people of the Common
wealth would have allowed God to remove this
evil by peaceful means.
We are casctlown by tbe murderous methods
existing, which cause daily 200 souls to be con
signed to drunkards' graves, also that the best
men of the cities are so sadly deceived as to
the best interests of the State. Take Pitts
burg, Allegheny, Philadelphia, Harrisburg and
Reading; their vote largely decided this ques
tion. They forged the yoke and fastened it
upon tne vast population ot the State.
Isn't it profoundly humiliating that licensed
business, licensed murder of the foulest kind,
should be called a help to society by 100,000 ma
jority? It must mean two things: that many
people who ought to know better are unpar
donably Ignorant, and a vast number care
ruoro for their appetite than they do for mo
rality. No fact, so appalls me as that Christian min
isters will advocate the licensing of the death
making process, and that there can be found
people to listen to it Political parties' have
little regard ior tne nonor otuod and thegood
of men. It is above suspicion that political
forces were prominent in the great defeat; that
trained politicians laid the ropes, "mustered the
volunteers and did field service on election day
is a matter of newspaper publicity. There is a
tide rising which will sweep snch organizations
"Why not destroyed T" is the other question.
Because God is in the abolition of the liquor
traffic He has not an attribute which can
take part with it It is. impure, earthly, sen
sual, devilish. The lives ol 60,000 boys are an
nually sacrificed to the cause"of liquor traffic.
The only salvation for us is to stop it by pro
hibition. The temporary arrest of a good cause only
means a more ardent prosecution of it. Money,
liquor and lies can never drown the truth. Let
us be thankful for the education the rum cam
paign has wrought Let us rely more fully
upon the power of God to reach tbe desireri
result and enter into the fight more fully with
strengthened hopes and earnest endeavors.
The Doctor also preached in Faith Chapel,
on Spring Garden avenue, in the evening,
on "The Open Door." The theme of his
discourse was that Christ was the open door,
what He has done for the salvation of sin
ners who had faith, and what He asked
them todo,and Hispromisesofaheavenlyre
ward should they obey His teachings. It
was a missionary sermon by request, and
was listened to by a very large concourse of

Assignees of the Formers and Mechanics'
Bank to Pay Depositors.
In a conversation with Mr. John Henry
Sorg at his home yesterday afterneon, that.
gentleman stated that the assignees of the
defunct Farmers and Mechanics' Bank have
a sufficient amount of cash on hand to pay
25 cents on the dollar, to depositors of the
Mr. Sorg and H. J. -Berg are the assig
nees. When all the property of the bank
has been turned into money the total
amount in tbe hands of the assignees will
be sufficient to pay 50 cents on the dollar to
depositors. The stockholders of the insti
tution will have to be assessed for the re
maining half of the total loss, which is said
to be about $200,000.
HE LIVED VERT FAST.
Young Harry Flainm Spent Money aa
Fast as He Got Hold of It.
CARRIAGES, WINE AND SUPPERS.
The Bank is Not Affected by the Loss, Ex
cept in Its Profits.
THE BOY WILL SUEELT BE PB0SECUTED
Harry Flamm, the individual bookkeeper
of the Marine National Bank, who was ar
rested Saturday night, as fully reported in
these columns yesterday, spent his first
Sunday in jail. No one was allowed' to see
him', even if any person had called; but not
one did. The case is one of the most re
markable in many respects of all the bank
defalcations which have taken place in the
United States. Never before has so young
a, -man, placed in a responsible position, got
away with so much money by a systematic
method of stealing..
All day yesterday the 13 direptors of the
bank were in session in the temporary build
ing that is now occupied by the bank while
the new bank building is being erected.
Captain J. B. Sneathen and Cashier Macrnm
are authority for the statement that the de
falcation will not exceed $35,000, and may
be not much more than 532,000.
THE BANK IS SOLID.
"There is not one of the directors of the
bank," said Captain Sneathen, "who is not
able to pay the full amount of Flamm's de
falcation at any moment. The bank has
only lost its profits. The stealing has been
going on for two years, nearly ever since
Flamm came into the bank." Continuing,
the Captain said :
Mr. Macrum, the cashier, was imposed npon
or he would never have ttken Flamm. Thero
were so many f riend3 of the young man who
said be was' perfectly honest and upright thatl
do not blame Mr. Macrum for employing him.
But neither Mr. Macrum nor any of tho direc
tors knew that Flamm bad been an embez
zler before. Wo didn't know it until Satur
day, and then we learned that while he was a
clerk at Joseph Home's storo be stole over
S1,000. The amount was made good by his
"I want you to say," continued Captain
Sneathen. "that tbo bank is entirely solvent
All that it has lost through Flamm is simply
the cutting down of profits. Every time that
a story gets out that there has been a defalca
tion in a bank, the depositors get scared, and
think that all the money has been taken.
Please say to the public that tbe Marine Na
tional Bank will be open for business at the
regular hour on Monday morning, and will re
main open. A mere boy, a fellow who is not of
age can't wreck a bank. The thing that wor
ries me Is that he could steal over 30,000 in two
years, but we will have to stand it"
A GUABANTEE BOND.
Then Mr. Macrum, the cashier, spoke up:
"I certainly wis imposed upon," said he.
"The boy had many friends who bame to
me and insisted that he was all right, but
the strongest argument made to me was that
he could get a bond from the New York
Guarantee Company. The guarantee com
panies look up a man's history very care
fully and when Flamm brought me a bond
in 5,000 1 had no further hesitancy in em
ploying him. He was always attentive to
his duties and I had no. reason to suspect
that he was not doing right until the re-
ports'came in about the way he was spend
ing his money. The Guarantee Company
will have to pay the $5,000, that is certain,
but it is equally sure that it will see that he
is prosecuted. His friends may make the
amount of the defalcation good, bnt I doubt
if he will get off."
"Yes," remarked Captain Sneathen, "I
suppose his friends may make the amount
good and try to have our charges with
drawn. "We would like to have the money,
of course, but I think Flamm will go to the
RffW THE MONET "WENT.
When "the boys" around town read of
the arrest of Flamm, each one fished np
some memories of how he spent his money,
"I thought the .blanked fool would get in
a scrape," said a well-known son of a coal
operator last'night. "Why, I was present
at a party at Fair Oaks that Harry gave.
There were about 40 others there. There
was a big supper, and nobody was allowed
to drink anything cheaper than champagne,

way, near Sixth street, and will be in a re-
spectaoie locality, where ladies can go
without fear. For ladies and children the
school will be open from 9 in the morning
until noon. The afternoon and evening
will be given to men and boys.
"The swimming bath, will be 70 feet long
by 35 wide. The tank will contain 8,000
gallons of water and will be in constant

machine that will sieve 120,000 gallons per
day and no impurities will be allowed to
get into it. The water will not come from

IS THE CLUB LIABLE?
A Decided Negative Keply for South
Forkers by the Attorney.
THE LEGAL SHAPE THE CLUB 18 IS.
Somo Tery Emphatic Supreme Court De
cisions on Providence.
SOLICITOR BEED OS THE TALK OP 6DITS
Mr. James H. Reed, Solicitor and legal
advisor of the South Fork Fishing Club,
made, last night, a' definite statement as to
the attitude of the club in 'the matter of
damage suits against it by Johnstown mer
chants or survivors of the great flood. The
Dispatch representative was equipped
with a legal status "of the case and had dis
covered certain decisions of the Pennsyl
vania Supreme Court bearing upon several
cases analogous to the South Fork disaster,
but, ot, coarse, not so grave in their results.
The matter as prepared, was shown to Mr.
Reed at his home last evening and evoked
the following statement: You seem to have
hit upon the very precedents we shall cite
in case any suits are to be brought of
which, however, we have as yet received no
legal notification and it is as well, per
haps, to state the position the club will as
sume. Several city attorneys have been
consulted recently by parties desirous of
bringing suits, with what result I cannot
HAVE EXPECTED IT.
"It is no surprise to us to hear that suits
are to be brought, as we have been confident
that a test case would be made by some one
of the many who were financially .injured
by the disaster. The members of the club,
while deeply deploring the widespread ruin
cansed by the flood, have, felt no unea;iness
as to any financial responsibility resulting
to either .the club as a corporation or the
stockholders as individuals. Generally
speaking the club is not liable, nor can the
stockholders be legally mulcted in any
possible way. If suits are brought we
shall, of course, put in a defense and use all
djligence in the preparation of onr answers.
Bat even the hasty summary of the laws
that bear upon the- case that The Dis
patch has prepared should be enough to
show conclusively that under the circum
stances the verdict would naturally favor
STATUS, FBOM A LEGAL VIEW.
"Will you kindly review briefly the,
legal aspect of the charter?" was asked.
"Certainly. The South Fork Club was
chartered under the law of 1874, subse
quent to the adoption of the new constitu
tion. The capital of the club was $10,000
at first, subsequently increased by amend
ment to $30,0,00. The act of 1874 was in
tended to generalize the power conferred
upon corporations Dy specinc acts given
theretofore by the Legislature. The. South
Fork Club comes under the class of corpora
tions not for profit, and the sub-division of
"Club for the Preservation of Game or
Fish" the purpose being the propagation
of game fish. The act of 1874 confers the
right to hold real estate np to an amount
less than an annual income upon, 520,000,
and the liability of each stockholder in that
act was placed at the amount of his stocK.
The stockholders in the club have paid in
the full amount called for by their subscrip
tions, and as stockholders owe the company
nothing, and consequently owe nothing
which could be attached for debt. The
State Supreme Court held, several years
since, that a clause in the law made
the stockholders liable for doable the
amount of their subscription. But an
amendment ot the act made by the Legisla
ture in 1887 expunged the double liability
clause, and so the act stands; The logical
inference; therefore, is most certainly that
suits for damages would be intile, if brought.
We shall be prepared with onr defense if
any suits are brought."
The following cases, which would undoubt
edly be cited as precedents in case of dam
age suits against the South Fork Club,
were taken from the State Supreme Court
records, and are of singular unanimity, be
sides covering a wide range of time." The
most impoitant case is that ot "Myers
versus Fritz," appealed from Lancaster
County Common Pleas,' and adjudicated by
the higher tribunal in 1887. A dam
had been built by the defend
ant," and an extraordinary storm
carried it upon the plaintiff's farm,
the fragments of the dam and the water
doing great damage. The gist of the de
cision was as follows: "But it the injury
proceeded from an extraordinary storm or
rain, or an act of Providence, such as could
not have been foreseen, anticipated, or ex
pected, the plaintiff would not be entitled to
recover. . Damnum abseque injuria."
meaning loosely translated, an injury with
out compensation. s
ANOTHER DAM CASE.
In the case of McCoy versus Danley, ad
judicated in 1852 by the Supreme Conrt the
language used was: "One who erects a dam
is liable for injury done by usual, ordinary
or expected freshets. A flood is another
thing. It may not come for years together
and when it does come it is a visitation of
Providence and the destruction it brings
must be borne oy tnose upon whom it talis. '
A case nearer home is also of interest, in
view of the claim tnat the Pennsylvania
Railroad bridge backed the water and de
bris up to points in Johnstown not in the
f ath of the flood. It is the case of Bell vs.
McClintock. annealed from Venanrro conntv
and adjudicated in 1839. .A dam had been
bnilt across Oil creek, a stream navigable
by law, and the damage done was caused by
HOW IT WAS DECIDED.
The decision held as follows:
The storm was phenomenal, and it was not
an accident that ordinaryprudence orforesight
could guard against. The finding is for the
defendant" There are a large number of
similar decisions both in this and other States
and the views of the Pennsylvania State Su
preme Court have been held again and again,

AFTER THE BATTLE.
Why Prohibition Was Defeated Rev.
Charles E. Locke's Sermon Explains
Blatters The Foreigners HIr.
"After the.Battle" was the subject of a
very interesting sermon at the Smithfield
Street M. E. Church last night, in which
the Bev. Charles E. Locke explained to.
some extent the reasons why the Constitu
tional amendment was defeated.
He took bis text from John xxi: 6,
where tbe Lord says to his disciples: "Cast
the net on the right side of the ship and ye
shall find," and after introducing bis dis
course with the story as related in the cos
pel of St. John, be said:
Jesus the Lord God stands to-day npon the
same pedestal ot immortality, looking down
upon tbe actions of men. and watching what
ever goes on. He is aware that the hosts of
Israel suffered defeat last Tuesday. Why did
they suffer defeat? Because the net was not
thrown ont on tbe rieht side, but on the wrong.
The defeat was due to-the fact that the soldiers
were divided against themselves. A houre
divided against itself cannot stand. In unity Is
strength, united wo stand, divided e fall are
words as true to-day as ever they were. The
Christian church was not a unit and tbe con
sequence was that the battle resulted in a
At a certain precinct in this city a preacher
stood last Tuesday beside a citizen, the one put
bis ballot into the urn for snd tbe other against
prohibition, vet both were members of the
same church. That must stop. Members of
the! Christian church must become christian
ized, they must bo a nmt and not until then
can success bo achieved.
Great reforms are not: easily accomplished.
There Is an element hostile to our American
institutions in this country. There are too
many foreigners in this land. I am not'antagon
izing immigration, but I believe that foreigners
must become Americanized. The German
must leave bis beer on the Rhine, the Irishman
his whisky in Dublin, the Frenchman must
abandon his Sabbath breaking when he gets
here, and the Italian must leave his filth in
Naples. I would rather see the Government of
this country in the hands of a 15-year-old school
boy, than in the hands of a host of naturalized
citizens, who do not understand the esprit da
corps of the American Republic.
