There is little doubt that a Lexow In
vestigating committee would find
plenty of corruption If It got to work In
Lackawanna county Investigating the
conduct of the sworn preservers of the
peace and enforcers of the law.
The conduct of many of. them Is to
pay the least peculiar.
They seem to think that an official
commission is a license to commit al
most any outrage against the law and
public decency, and many of them have
become so emboldened by success that
they make little or no effort to disguise
or cover up their unlawful acts. They
look upon disorderly houses, gambling
dens and tippling houses as institutions
which should be allowed to thrive for
their, special benefit If 1a proprie
tor refuses to be liberal then his place
is at once found to be a menace to pub
lic morals, and arrest speedily follows.
Knowing the unlawful nature of his
business the defendant dare not face a
jury in court and must perforce settle
at the terms of his prosecutor, and if
he has any money left he proceeds to
embark in the same business again.
Every little while the public prints re

Cases In Point.
Last Monday Constable James Clark,
of the Eighteenth ward, swore out war
rants before Alderman Hore for the ar
rest of Clara Welchel and Cora Oliver.
John Gilbrlde, of the South Side, at the
Bame time and before the same alder
man, lodged Information against
Charles Thiel. These persons were
charged with being the proprietors of
houses of ill fame located in Cen
ter street. Constable Patrick Hen
nlgan was the constable who
served these warrants and the
prosecutors fixed the witching hour
of midnight for the hearing before
Alderman Hore. Cora Oliver was not
found, but Miss Welchel and Thlel ap
peared at the alderman's office on Em
met street. His record shows that the
case against Miss Welchel collapsed for
want of evidence, and that Thlel waived
a hearing for his appearance at court.
Concerning her arrest and the subse
quent hearing Miss Welchel tells the
In the early part of August Con
stable Clark paid a visit to her place.
Later he told her that if she would give
him $20 he would be blind to what he
saw, otherwise the law would have to
take its course against her. ' She re
fused to be bled by Clark, she says,
and the next time she heard from him
he spoke in the shape of a warrant.
Took Fifteen Dollars.
When she arrived at the alderman's
office Clark met her before entering,
and wanted to know If they could not
settle the case.
"How much money do you want?"
"Twenty dollars," was his reply..
After a consultation with her attor
ney she offered him $15, and he agreed
for that amount to drop the suit.
Alderman Hore, when asked why the
proceedings against Miss Welchel were
dropped, said that Clark offered no tes
timony that would warrant him , In
sending the case to court and he had
to let the prisoner go.
On Thursday afternoon Ollhrlde
according to the assertions of Thlel,
sought out Thlel and wanted to make
a bargain with him. The latter spurned
all overtures of settlement and defied
him to carry the case to court. How
ever, at 7 o'clock in the evening in a
saloon on Penn avenue, into which
Gilbrlde had followed Thlel, they sot
tUid it for the paltry sum of. $2 in the
presence of several witnesses.
Gilbrlde, an hour later, had become
drunk and attempted to enter the house
kept by Miss Welchel. The door was
barred against him and that ruliled his
temper. He became engaged in an en
counter with that adjunct known as
"the bouncer," but when the officers ar
rived his antagonist took to flight and
escaped. GUbride also tried to evade
the officers, but Patrolman Day cap
tured him at the corner of Penn avenue
and Spruce street. The next day Alder
man Fuller discharged him with a
What Will Bo Done?
Clark's connection with the cases Just
quoted should not be over-looked by
the proper authorities. The travesty
upon justice witnessed at each session
of the grand1 'jury (when constables
make their returns, and swear to the
freedom of their respective bailiwicks
from tippling houses and other forms
ot law violation dwarfs into Insignifi
cance alongside the vulturous methods
employed by those officials who offer
protection to these dens of infamy for
a consideration. It is little wonder that
In parts of the county lawlessness is
rife when- the preservation of the peace
is Independent upon men whom a bribe
can Induce to overlook any offense, and
who deliberately plot to levy blackmail,
becoming willing abettors of all kinds
of debauchery when their ichlng palm

IDEAL RACING DAY.
Events at the Driving Purk Saturday Well
Saturday was an ideal autumnal rac
ing day, one that was good for man and
beast, and attracted a larger crowd
than usual to the races of the Gentle
men's Driving club. Owing to a tardi
ness in starting the first race only two
events were finished and the 8-minute
class was left undecided after J. Frank
Belgel's gelding, W. F. H., Jr., and M. T.
Keller's bay mare, B. C, had each cap
tured a heat.
The two events decided were hotly
contested and productive of excitement.
J. H. Sutherland, the heavy-wnlght
driver, succeeded in making a win with
his bay gelding, Browny S, against a
field of good quality. The entries were
Thief, Maud L, Duke and Beauty J. The

HOLY ArOSTOtIO CIIIRCII.
Rev. II. M. Mill Argues for the Re-Union
of Christians-Substance of Ills Re
marks. Rev. H. M. Mill preached an excellent
sermon yesterday morning at St.
David's church, Hyde Park, from the
words, "That thy way may be known
upon the earth, thy saving health
among all the nations," and said:
"One of the very last commands which
Christ gave on earth' to his disciples
was, 'All power is given unto me in
heaven and in earth; go ye therefore
and teach all nations, baptizing them
in the name of the trinity, teaching
them to observe all things, whatsoever
I have commanded you.' This is the
grand charter under which a visible
church was at first constituted. Its
high functions were original here, but
to be transferred to all worthy suc
cessors. From this it must follow that
the 'main and primary object of the
church is not so much for the sake of
deriving personal benefits from it, as
for the evangelization of the whole
world, and, therefore, Just as soon as
the church ceases to be a missionary
church, so soon will it fall to accom
plish its true mission.
Missionary Zeal of Apostles.
"There never was a greater mission
ary zeal manifested In the Christian
church than during the time of the
Apostles; every one seemed toactunder
the responsible duty of blng divinely
appointed to evangelize a perishing
world. None of the Apostles thought
that their only duty was to work and
preach for Christ In the city or in the
province or the kingdom in which he
lived. Every man seemed impelled by
a holy zeal to discharge the functions
of a missionary, and those days were
the most flourishing that can be found
throughout the entire history of the
"We are today living in an age of
high culture and enlightenment; most
people are doing their own thinking.
The superstitions of the past are year
after year becoming less, and intelli
gent thought is filling their places with
truth and earnestness. This steady
change is the lever of progress mani
festing itself in civil society, the arts
and sciences, and in religion. This
spirit of unrest andchangelsa wonderful
pressure upon all Christian believers,
The fallacious teachings of hot-headed
reformers, who have long Blnce gone to
their reward, are put to the test as they
never were before, and, consequently,
Inch by inch yielding to the truth, and
the result is a general return to the
Moving Hack Toward Church.
"Perhaps nowhere else is this more
prominently manifested than In the
different denominations, which are
slowly but steadily moving back again
toward the church, and in my mind
right here, It IS where our stronger mis
sionary efforts should be more largely
centered. In spite of the untenable po
sition in regard to the church held by
these men, we can not ignore their in
fluence and moulding power upon the
hearts and minds of men. They are a
force second to none outside of the
church, therefore our efforts directed
In this line of work, if successful, as
eventually must be, must be the grand
est and most glorious missionary
triumph In the church's history.
"That this work Is a delicate and cri
tical one is known but too well, but
this alone makes it deserve the more
serious and prayerful attention. As to
the course to be pursued, I will leave to
abler minds, men who have grown grey
in the service of the church to decide,

and practical line of work In this direc
tion, its optimistic and visionary ideas

LOST GAME TO SIIAMOKIX.
Thcro Was Plenty of llrilllnnt Work and
the Contest Was Very Interesting
Saturday's foot ball game at the base
ball park between the team from Sha
mokln and Manager Cahlll's men was
better attended than the games preced
ing it this season. The game was won
by the visitors, but brilliant play on,
both sides made up for the loss of the
game. The Shamokln team was pre
ceded by a reputation that gave It the
name of being one of the strongest
elevens in the state and beforehand the
expectation inclined toward the defeat
of the home team. The work of Sim
mons, of Shamokln, and Owen Walsh,
of Scranton, was superb. It was not
any particular star play made by either
but the all-round good work shown dur
ing the game. But Walsh covered him
self with glory when he secured the
first touch down for Scranton. Fol
lowed by Simmons he secured the ball
and ran thirty yards. The Interference
of Connery, Dan Gelbert and Decker at
this point, created much enthusiasm
and was loudly applauded.
Shamokln won the toss, but Scranton
secured the ball on the kick and by
energetic tackling got It to Shamokln
thirty yard line, where they lost it on
four downs. In twelve minutes the
Shnraoktns got the ball bnck to Scran
ton's five-yard line, and Simmons ran
through Scranton's tackle for a touch
down. Simmons missed the goal. Score,
Shamokln 4, Scranton 0.
The visitors again secured a touch
down easily, mainly through the good
work of Simmons and J. Walsh, They
again failed to kick a goal.
The flrBt half was within six minutes
of time and the home team put their
time to good use by scoring a touch
down and kicking a difficult goal. It
was here that Owen Walsh made the
long run for a touch down. Score,
Shamokln 8, Scranton 6. The ball was
In mldfleld when time was called.
The second half was stubbornly con
tested. A decision of the umpire, who
claimed that the home players were
playing offside, awarded the visitors
the ball and ten yards of a gain. It
was not hard for the visitors to get the
ball to Scranton's five-yard line, but
for five minutes it was a fierce battle
before the Shamoklns got a touch
down. Simmons kicked an easy goal,
making the score 14 to 6 in Shamokin's
favcr. Before any more scoring could
be done on cither side time was called.
The positions of the players were as
follows: t ,
Uriel left end Walh
Lesslg left tackle Allen
Holshue left guard Connery
McCnll '.center Mitchell

Special Correspondence of The Tribune.
Llanelly, South Wales, Oct. 3.
Yesterday afternoon I had the pleas
ure of paying a visit to a "board"
school here in this place. The differ
ence between a board and a national
school here is that the board school is
entirely free to the children, while at
the schools .of the national sort, books,
apparatus, etc., have to be provided by
the pupils, as in some of our public
schools before the passage of the benl
ficent Farr free text book law. I did
not admire their school system very
much, as of course It does not compare
with ours, which I think is as good as
any in the world. The great and first
mistake made here is that of employing
"pupil teachers" to teach 'the very
youngest children. They enter here at
the age of three, and as their youthful
teachers, who are pupils in a higher
grade themselves, know very little or
nothing of the teachings and methods
of the beloved Pestalozzl or Proebel, or
In fact, of any good teacher of child
hood. It can be Inferred that the in
struction these children receive is not
imparted in the most scientKIc manner,
to say the least. As I went through the
lower grades of the school, I found the
teacher In every room teaching the
children by the rote system the worst
there is for the poor child's mind. Noth
ing of our kindergarten system prevails
even in the most youthful grade.
However, in justice to one youthful
teacher of these babies, who was plain
ly more inventive than her associates, I
must mention her use of a little swing
in her schoolroom, for the purpose of
giving her little pupils some relaxation
at times. She had it suspended from
the celling of the room, where It was
swinging away with a little girl In It
when I came Into the room. One child
after another has its turn In the swing
every day. She puts the most orderly
little man or woman in It at the begin
ning of the session, pulls it away back
and gives It a vigorous push, and away
the child goes, up in the air, on a little
ride, which it no doubt enjoys very
much. As the child Is too little to make
the swing go itself, it simply sits there
and wishes the swing won't stop for a
long time, as when it does, he has to
get out and make way for the next
best youngster. How disappointed he
must be to find that the swing is "lot
ting the old cat die," and the hopes that
rise in the breasts of the sixty or more
other youngsters as they wait to be
chosen for the next ride, can be better
imagined than described, I fancy. I
wondered, if sometimes, there wereever
too many children there for the rides
doled out. Of course, the bad little
boys and girls have to wait till the last
for their turn, and I think, Judging
from the swarm of them I saw there,
and the length of the ride in the swing,
that sometimes they don't get it at all,
Sewing Lessons Taught.
One thing I liked about these schools,
and which our schools could copy with
benefit to themselves. Is the sewing les
sonyes, and the cooking lesson, too, I
forgot to mention. Twice a week every
girl in the national and board schools,
all over the United Kingdom, takes her
sewing or needlework lesson, which
lasts a complete session, from 1 till 4,
so you see it is a pretty long lesson, and
one by which she will be likely to profit.
The cooking lesson Is Just as long and
as much Importance Is attached to it,
as to the sewing class. I happened to
visit the schools on the afternoon of a
sewing lesson and must tell you that I
saw some lovely work in sewing, knit
ting and crocheting, done by very young
One more thing which I really cannot
say how much I admired was the deaf
and dumb department In these schools.
Now, take into consideration that these
schools are exactly to the Welsh and
English what our public schools are to
us (as they are really public schools,
but are called by a different name,
board schools and national schools)
and then listen nnd I will see If I can
manage to tell you, intelligibly, what a
fine work they are doing In this direc
tion. They find out how mnny donf
mutes, and how many of either, deaf
or dumb people, there are in the dis
trict, and gather them together In a
class and have a teacher for them, who
is himself a deaf mute, and who has
been well educated. Of course, the
good done by the establishment of this
deaf mute class in the schools cannot
be estimated. I had the pleasure of
seeing siirh a class, numbering fif
teen, under the care of their teacher,
who was quite an old man, go through
some very Interesting lessons In writ
ing, arithmetic, drawing, knitting,
crocheting and sewing. What ti
great benefit such a provision for
the poor deaf and dumb is. Of
course there are private, or pay
Bdiools for the deaf and dumb in Swan
sea and Cardiff, and In fact ,all large
cities; but if one could not afford to
attend them here are these classes In
the public schools, which throw open
the same chances for instruction to a
poor deaf and dumb child as to those
whb are more gifted.

WALES WASN'T THERE.
The Queen and Prince Forgot to Welcome
In a personal letter to a member of
The Tribune staff, John H. Blackwood,
business manager of the Haydn Evans
Concert company, tells of a delightful
trip Mrs. and Miss Allen and he took
to Ireland, to see Lake KUlurney and
other famous sights, including the
Blarney stone. He says ho wonders
why any Irishman wants to leave such
a' beautiful country.
In explanation of the delay In Mr.
Blackwood's correspondence, he ex
plains that when the company landed
at Southampton, instead of being
booked ahead for a month's dates, as
had been expected, not a single date
had been arranged. This necessitated
some tall hustling on Mr. Blackwood's
part, during which letter writing had
to take a secondary place.
In a facetious vein Mr. Blackwood
laments the failure of Queen Victoria
and the Prince of Wales to meet him at
Southampton. Then, growing eloquent,
he compliments the hospitality and
beautiful traits of the Welsh character,
tells of the financial success of the tour
and of the artistic success scored by
Miss Allen and Miss Kaiser, and an
nounces his Intention to return, if pos
sible, in time to vote the right ticket
