DK. Ml'LLALY'S I'LAlS TALK
'lie Thinks the Savior Would Not Have
Jfcirvued the Detective Methods of
thc New York Prcnclicr-I'robi
letn for the Presbytery.
By the I'nlted Tress.
New York, Dec. 11. Most of tho mem
bers of the New York Presbytery had
left the meeting In the First Presbyte
rian church yesterday when Thomus S.
Strong, a lawyer, who Is an elder In
Kev. Dr. Charles L. Thompson's church,
remarked Innocently that at lunch he
had been talking with friends about the
fact that Dr. Parkhurst's work for re
form had been recognized by oilier
bodies, religious and secular, but that
the Presbyterian, church had hitherto
taken no action. He, therefore, pro
posed that Rev. Dr. Thomas S. Hast
ings, president of Union Theological
seminary, who preached the Thanks
giving Bermon In Dr. Parkhurst's pul
pit; Rev. Dr. George Alexander, vice
moderator of the Presbytery, and Rev.
Dr. James O. Patterson should be ap
pointed a committee to draw up suit
able resolutions. There was a chilly
silence for a minute. The reverend
brethren and elders looked at each
"What's this?" asked Rev. Francis P.
Mullaly. "Is it a recognition of Dr.
Parkhurst's work as a pastor?"
Christ Not u Social Reformer.
"It Is a recognition of his work In the
reform of the city," was Mr. Strong's
"Well," said Mr. Mullaly, "I oppose
Jt, Inasmuch ns Christ did not enter into
social reform movements, and the
whole business of Christ's ministry is
preaching the Gospel. I would feel
thut I had not discharged my duty If
I did not say that you have no more
right to take notice of what Dr. Park
hurst is doing than you have to take
notice of what any other benevolent
citizen Is doing. I hold, sir, that you
have no more right to enter upon those
questions of social reform through the
aid of legislation than you have to send
out instructions to the shoemakers and
the decorators and the dry goods
dealers or anybody else in thlB country
In regard to their business.
" 'My kingdom,' says Jesus Christ, 'is
not of this world. To this end was I
born, and for this end have I come,
that I might bear witness to the truth,
and the truth that is in the Bible, the
truth of the gospel, is the only weapon
which belongs to us as an ecclesiastical
Criticized Dr. l'arkliurst's .Methods.
"If you want us as citizens to help Dr.
Parkhurst or any other man, adjourn
the Presbytery, meet as citizens In your
Individual capacity as such and pass
the resolutions you wish. I protest
against the Court of Jesus Christ tak
ing such action as is proposed. It is
going beyond your commission. I- have
not a word to say as to what Dr. Park
burst has done. As a man, he has a
right to do It; but I do say that when
he has gone and visited those places
which he wished to suppress he was not
acting as a"
There were frowns and murmurings,
and Mr. Mullally stopped short. Then
"You know what I mean. He was
not acting by any authority from the
commission which Jesus Christ has
given to His apostles, which Is simply
to go and preach the gospel to every
There was an uneasy pause. Then
Mr. Strong said he would not introduce
his resolution under any consideration
except that of unanimity. He wanted to
Withdraw his motion. Rev. Dr. Shearer
said the motion should not be with
drawn. Prcsbyterj' Must I'uce tho Question.
"If it is understood," said the moder
ator, Rev. Robert R. Booth, "that Mr.
Strong's motion" is withdrawn without
prejudice, In view of the fact that only
a few of the members were present
when it was brought up, the with
drawal might, perhaps, do no harm."
Rev. Dr. Wylle moved that further
consideration of the matter be post
poned for the present, owing to the late
ness of the hour and the very small
attendance of members. This was
agreed to, but when the draft of the
minutes were read Rev. Dr. Kirch, the
prosecutor of Dr. Brlggs, tried to have
all reference to the subject expunged
from the minutes, "it ought to be
dropped entirely," he said. The Pres
bytery would not consent to this and
the January meeting will have to faco
Mr. Mullally repeated In private what
he had said in public, adding that Jesus
Christ would not have acted as Dr.
Parkhurst did on his visits to disorderly
houses at the beginning of his crusade.
"You observed what nn attentive
hearing I got," he continued. "I am
sure that some of the members of the
Presbytery are with me."
Mr. Mullally was born In the south of
Ireland, and most of his ministerial
work was done In the south. He has
been In New York for a few years, and,
although a member of the Presbytery,

Gets Fire to His House with the Intention
of Perishing Within.
South Haven, Mich., Dec. 11. Robert
Webster, a farmer living three miles
from here, set fire to his barn about 5
o'clock this morning. Eugene Keasy
and another neighbor named Stedman
discovered that' the barn was on fire
and after getting out the animals went
to Webster's house to notify him. On

inflicting probably fatal Injuries. .
Some of the charge also struck Sted

Injured, Webster thtn' set fire tit the

P. B. Hellner, of the Lehigh and Wilkes
Burre Coal company, of New York, says
that no matter what may be done out
side of his company he will stand by pres

The Reading rallroud reports that its
coal shipment (estimated) for the week
ended Dee. 8 was 208.001) tons, of which 18.
(HH) tons were sent to Port Richmond and
9,000 ton to New York waters.
Work on the Scranton and Pittston Su
burban company's street railway line
from Pittston to Avoca is going along
nicely. The workmen are at present lay
ing rails on Avoca's main street.
The Pennsylvania railroad reports that
the quantity of coal and coke originating
on and carried over its lines east of Pitts
burg and Krle for the week ended Dec. 1
was 417,953 tons, of which 'M,rM tons were
coal and 108,447 tons coke.
Private capitalists have leased the
Pennsylvania railroad tract around West
Hazleton, and will bore for coal. The
Pennslyvanla people have driven a lai'Re
number of holes, but failed to Had enoiiijli
coal to warrant any further expenditure.
The extension of the Wyoming Valley

There has been rumors abroad the past
few days, says the Gazette, of the forma
tion of a rival electric line from Pittston
to Wilkes-Harre. Several prominent Pitls
tonians have been mentioned as active
promotors of the proposed new road, but
each and every one of them approached
on the subject has denied any connection
with the rival line.

The Philadelphia Press, inclined to be
bearish in coal matters, says the "Indi
vidual coal operators are still seriously
considering the sfute of trade. The at
tempt to equalize tide anil line prices
has not been-wholly successful, and there
is now a movement among some of the
larger individual producers to arrange
with the carrying companies, with whom
they have contracts for the purchase of
coal to rescind them for a stated period
and handle the coal themselves. This
would benefit some Individual producers
and the trade. The talk of a strike
among the miners Is not regarded seri
ously." The Ontario, Carbondale and Scranton
Railway company, operating between
Scranton and Jackson, N, Y has at last
Hied In the department of Internal af
fairs the annual report of its oiieratlons
for the llscal year ended Juno 30, lis!) I.
The report should have been tiled on or
before Aug. 81 last, as provided by law,
and comes too Into to be compiled with re
ports of other companies operating in the
state how In' the hands of State Printer
Busi'li. The company- has been certllleil
by Secretary Stewart to the attorney kci
eral for the collection of the JG.Ouo penalty
provided for by the act of 1S8U governing
these corporations. Somo of the ofllcers
of the company claim they supposed tho
report had been filed and that the refusal
or neglect to make the report was due to
the negligence of the company's secre
tary, who resides In New York city. Sec
retary Stewart has refused to accept the
report and will Insist upon the collection
of the penalty.
If the possession of railroads and tele
graphs Is a gauge of civilization then the
United States certainly stands fur ahead
of any other nation. Of railroads Amer
ica has 218,871,4 miles or 31,000, miles more
than all of the remaining countries of the
world combined. All Kurope has but 141,
359 miles, while Asia, notwithstanding Its
Immense size, counts only 23,21!)Vj nills.
Africa has 7,2128 miles and Australia 12,
C85 miles of Iron. For every 10.000 inhab
itants In the I'nlted States there are 23.12
miles of railroad, while In Kurope the
proportion falls to 4.22 miles per 10.000 In
habitants. With our ox pun He of country
we have 4,913 miles of road per 100 square
miles, while In densely-settled Europe
the mileage Is hut 3.82 per 100 square miles.
The world's railways cost the enormous
sum of $33,500,000,000 or an average of $121,.
2R0.8S per mile. The cheapest roads are In
Australia, where the price was as low as
$21,733 per mile. The roads In the United
States cost ten nnd a third billion dollars
or an average of $59,298.12 per mile. The
facts In the case of telegraph lines are
1,002,543 miles, of which 545,(i25 miles are In
America, 380,278 In Kurope, li7,4Sl In Asia,
21.562 In Africa and 47,535 In Australia.

TO our patrons:
Washburn-Crosby Co, wish to assure their many pat
rons thut they will this year hold to their usual custom
of milling STRICTLY OLD WHEAT until the new crop
is fully cured. New wheat is now upon the market, and
owing to the excessively dry weather many millers are
of the opinion that it is already cured, and in proper
condition for milling. Washburn-Crosby Co. will take
no risks, and will allow the new wheat fully three
months to mature before grinding.
This careful attention to every detail of milling has
placed Washburn-Crosby Co.'s flour far above other
We have the following; supplies of lumber secured, at
prices that warrant us in expecting; a large
share of the trade :
