He Takes Exception to tho Spirit of
the Meeting C. L. Hawley Talks to
the PointScripture Misquoted by
w. w. Lathrop Not a Lot of
"Nodles" to Fight-A Petition
Remonstrating Against Saloons.
In response to a gennral call for n
mealing o Thirteenth ward eitizins to
protest against the re-gMDtini of a
liquor license to John Horn, IMG Diok
so.i arenup, and three now lieenees, a
good sized audience gathered in the
Asbury Methodist Episcopal church
laitnigbt Tho fatur8 of tho meet
ing ware a number of religo-politlco
speeches which had little, if any, bear
ing on the purpote of tho meeting and
tho spaecb of lisv. Frank Scholl lial
len tine,
The hitter's talk was to the offtot
that too much bluster and too little
business wero evidenced, and brought
down hissss from one portion of tho
house and faint applause from the
Tbo meeting was opened by A. G.
Thomason. Those who spoke were
Rav, W. J. Ford. W. W. Lithrop,
Miner 0. Carr, G L. Hawk-v, R. W.
Kellow, J. L. Hangi and Bar. F. S.
ISiilloutiue. With the possiblo excep
tion of Mr. Hawley and Rev. Mr.
Billentine, one uninitiated would in
fer that the gathering came together
for the purpose of expressing Individ
ual viewH on, religion and prohibition
Mr. Hawley really opened the meet

Liible quotations, bat replete with
practical ideas whicii Beamed to meet
the approval of a goodly portion of the
There was a climax of excitement
when Uev. .Mr. Balientino took excep
tions, apparently, to the moaning of
Mr. Hawley't remarks, and in sub
stance told tha BUdUtlQs they were on
the wrong tsek, unl offerad his view
01 to how tho saloon evil should he
eliminated from Greein Ridge.
Mr. Hartley Introduced his remarks
by saying that there would be "a lit
tfe plain language from truthful
Jame?." The gentlemen who had pro
ceeded him, he said, bad been too deli
cate in tbeir ideas; yet ho didn't want
the audience to be I:lc- tho farmer who
prayed for rain, and when a deluge
came said, "Oh, Lord, this is not what
I wanted; I only wished a withy
wiishy, drizzly drazzly sort of ft rain.'
There was nc use in mincing matters;
the audience should cure the evil by
going to its fountain-head the ballot.
Tho Thirteenth ward has had u yearly
remonstrance excitement for twenty
five years, which would continue for
twenty-live years to come, unless the
beginning of the evil wns cured, tho
same as n doctor cures diseases it its
source. The audience really, he said.
had no more business to suppress ttie
saloon element in Green Ridge th;n it
had at Pine Brook or any othar local
ity, Yet, said Jlr. Hawley, 1 will sign
by name to tne remonstrance.
Ha presented four propositions and
challenged contradiction: First, John
Horn and his business are no worse
i mm the license he holds; tocond, tho
licente is no worso than the law which
allows it; third, the law is no worse
than the legislature whicn makes it;
fourth, the legislature is no worse than
the men who compose it. The voters
cast ballots twioa a year to keep the
saloons going, and meet onco a year
to remonstrate against thoir own bal
lots. They remonttratoto forget
they hove dona.
Tho seutiiuanta expressed by Mr.
Hawley brought forth tbe plaudits of
hit hearers and everybody soemjd
Just then it came timn for licv. Mr.
Ballentine's inning, and that gentle
man threw off all superfluous s-nti-
ments and got down to a plain business
discourse for which the religo politico
clement waa unprepared and which,
though the only practical tall; of tha
evening, was greeted at one point with
hisses and ended with no evidence of
Mr. Ballentine fuid that the enemies
thny had to fight were among the mo.l
Infloeotia) citizens of tholwaro,tnan who
knew more about religion or politics
than many who had quoted Scripture
in the meeting. Amoug those gontle
men is one of the brightest lawyers of
the state or county ; another it a mem
ber of one of the most tucoetsfnl legal
firms in the city, one of the building
committee which constructed tha
church wherd last night's meeting wit)
held, one of the, if not the, leading
members of that church; another lived
onu block from the meeting and was a
member of the Presbyterian chnreh;
anctner lived in a houni on BaidortOD
avenue, the most costly in tliolty.
''These men, "Oe a iid, "are not '.lo.lloa '
"They are of the must intelligent,
brightest and successful of the citizani
of Scranton. They, and the granting of
the licenses wbtcti they recommended,
mutt be met in u business may. No
'v.'isby-wntby' tactics, tuah as heard at
the meeting wilt thwart their pnrposs."
Tho speaker aaid that E B. Sturgea,
who is now abroad, h id In the past
kept tho saloon evil out of the ward.
In his absence the citizens should fol
low bis example. Mr. Sturges want
about it in a business wnr.epent money
if necessary, and paid money for a
honse-to-hous-? canvas. Hi alsj ujd
bis personal influence.
Tho meeting had been caplur I, he
tald, by Prohibitionists, who would
attract the evil instead of driving it
away. Putting tho outaide parti of
the question in the background, the
preteut purpose of the oltiitni was to
tight tbe licenses appliol for. The
meeting should get down to business
aud not inuke n big noise and then
consider it minion ended, An organ
ization tLould be effected and ugents
paid if necessary to do the work.
At tbit point someone hissed; tbo
signal was taken up and hisses and
groans, suppressed out; evident, cain
trom different parts of tha audlance.
Rev. Mr. Ballentine paused n mo
ment, but, unaffected by the rebuff,
aaid -
"Yes, yon can bias, but I am here to
talk common sense ; I can't be put down
by hitset, but can stand as long as you
can bin. My talk is not of the 'wishy
waahy' aort.
Then it was time for n rap to be
given Mr. Lathrop, who had mi
quoted the Bible in his remarks. Ha
had said, "wot unto him that putteth
tha bottle to hit lipt that m ik-th him
Mr. Billentine took exception to this
and remarked that the text had bean
misquoted for the purpose of argu
ment and had been mutilated, He cor
noted tho gentleman aa follows: "Woe
to him that givath his neigh
bor driuk and putteth the bottle
to him, that inaketh him drunken also,
that thon niaytst look upon thoir
nakednees." Tbere is only one text the
Pronibition party can atand on '1 will
not oat meat so long as tho earth aland
elh, if it make mv hrother to offend."
lie hoped the meeting would get down
to tho busineaa it was called for.
The meeting did not. however, fol
low Mr. Ballentine's adrics; it passed
motion as its voice that saloons were
not needed in Green Ridge. What
the particular purpose of the motion
was did not appear. During the meet
ing n collection waa taken, the purpose
of which was also to be inferred. A
petition was sigued before and after tho
meeting; it will be used as an argument
for the non-granting of licenses.
In addition to tbt Horn license the
following are also asked for in the

He imagined everything waa in proper

lie supposed, tho key to wealth, and
started for tno Barclay stroet ferry, ac
companied by one of the confidence
men, who bade him an affectionate
adieu. When he arrived iu Jersey
City he attempted to open the box, but

Considerable friction hut arisen nt
various times betweon street railway
conductors in this city and passengers
who hand bills aud coins in payment of
fares ranging from $5 to $'.'(). In many
caaes thia may be accidental, but thero
are oaaea where everything aeeins to
indicate that the action was designed.
The following extract from the cur
rent ittne of The Car, a atreet railway
journal, will be of interest to all read
era, but more particularly to that clasa
that never have any sm ill change.
Ulviug change after all seems to be only
a matter of courteey. There was an opin
ion or decision, pi nimbly banded down
from the dictum of the-people, that con
ductors were compelled to give change to
amounts up to two dollars, but according
toSnprODM Court Justine Hayner the giv
ing of change for even teu cent pieces is
merely rourtssy.
His decision on the matter was bai 1 08
the fullowiug facts: Henry Bhiro was a
conductor on the eloctnc road from Col
lege l'olnt to Flushinz, I'. I. Last month
George H. Wagoner got on his car nnd
har.ded him a five-dollar bill, remarking

off, and the conductor still had hh five
dollars. He demauded it peremptorily,

five dollars until be got to the end of uis
