SUIT OYER COAL LEASES.
The Silver Creek Mining Company Takes
Action Against a Director and an Era.
ploye of the Company to Recover Coal
Property Which It Is Alleged They Leas
ed in Tholr Own Names, Instead of in
he Company's Name.
In court before Judge Gunster Satur
day the Silver Creek Mining company
filed a bill In equity against W. W.
Patterson, David. E. Taylor and J.
Alton Davis, and asked the court to re
strain these gentlemen from making
any sale or transfer, other than to the
Silver Creek Mining company of the
leases held In their names to a breaker
and a certain tract of coal land in St.
Clair, Schuylkill county, and also from
operating said breaker.
In the bill of complaint and informa.
tlon sworn to by William H. Brown,
president, and George W. Deeths and
William S. Boyd, Jr., directors of the
company, it is stated that David E,
Taylor is a stockholder and director.
and W. W. Patterson an employe of the
company. President William H. Tay
lor of the Silver Brook Mining company
employed Mr. Patterson to arrange for
tne leasing by the company of several
tracts of coal land In and about St.
Clair. Mr. Taylor, for the Silver Brook
Mining company, further employed Mr,
Patterson to arrange for the leasing
purchasing by the company of a
breaker and coal lands from the Phila
delphia and Rending Coal and Iron
company, and also to arrange for the
leasing, by the company, of the Earp
tract of coal land lying between the
breaker and the company's other lands.
The bill alleges that on Feb. 6, 1894, a
written agreement with Mr. Patterson
as drawn up, in part to this effect
Mr. Taylor, on account of 111 health, left
for Europe on June 30. When he re
turned, Sept. 16, It Is alleged he found
that Mr. Patterson had In the meantime
leased the Earp tract, not In the name
of the complainant company, but In his
own name and that of David E. Taylor,
and further than this had endeavored
to secure an option In the Philadelphia
and Reading Coal and Iron company's
breaker adjoining, In the name of D. IS,
Taylor and W. W. Patterson. Subse
quently, it is alleged, to the petitioners'
best knowledge and belief, that they
ltt Mr. Davis Into the arrangement.
The company holds that the lease to
the Earp tract rightfully belongs to it
They wish the defendants restrained
from mining coal In the Erap tract or
oueratlng the breaker until such time
as the ownership of the property can be
properly determined. A preliminary In
junction was granted and made return
able next Thursday.
Mr. Davis, when questioned rs to his
connection with the suit, disclaimed
having any personal interest in the
lease. . - .. . -

VOLUNTEER FIREMEN MEET,
Session Saturday Night Was a Medley of
Business and Pleasure.
Members of the companies of the
Scranton Fire department put on their
dress uniforms Saturday night and
headed by the Patrlotlo Order Sons of
America drum corps, of the South Side,
paraded the principal streets, advertis
ing the ball of the Volunteer Firemen's
association which will be held Wednes
day night at Turner hall.
After the parade a special meeting ot
the association at Purr's hall was at-
The first annual meeting of the sup
porters of the Florence Crittenden mis
sion was held on Saturday afternoon
at the Young Woman's Christian asso
ciation rooms. A large number of
those Interested In the work were pres
ent. The various reports of officers
were read and sreneral satisfaction ex
pressed with the progress of the work
during the first year.
Mrs. Frances B. Swan, the president
of the mlBslon, in her report, said that
the object of the mission had been mis
understood by some people, and ex.
plained that in the constitution it was
stated that the object of the mission is
the establishment, support and man
agement of an Institution for the pur
pose of rescuing and encouraging fallen
women of every creed, nationality ana
color, and elevating them to a Christian
womanhood, and. for the further pur
pose of protecting women from falling
into the hands of designing ana unprin
clpled persons. The home was a haven
to those who deBlred to escape irom a
life of sin, and to whom every door is
closed, even the door of their childhood
homes. In conclusion Mrs. bwan saia:
'If Christian people could only re.
allze the alluring and almost lrresist
lble temptations that surround the
voung girls living In Chrlstless and
poverty-stricken houses, with a large
percentage of them motherless, woum
they be so ready to point the finger of
scorn? It Is human nature to err, but
not to forgive. God alone seems to
p.omnrehend the fact that the sin of the
fallen waman Is no greater than other
slnH which are committed and con
doned bv humanity at large. It Is be.
cause we believe that the better nature
can be cultivated, the law of heredity
overcome by education and the baser
tendencies destroyed, that we go steau.
lly on In the work of helping tne unior
tunate into better and nobler lives.
It Is Open to All.
"Almost everv tvoe of human kind
