Lackawanna liar Association Takes Ac
tion on the Dcuth of L'x-Jiidgc Henry Al.
See I. v.
In spite of the severe snow storm and
a rush of court business a large number
of members of the Lackawanna County
Bar association met yesterday morn
ing to take action upon the death of
ex-Judge Henry M. Seely, of Hones
dale, Wayne county, who less than a
year ago had established a law ofllce In
this city. Ex-Judge Alfred Hand, pres
ident of the association, presided over
the meeting, which convened at 11.20
o'clock In the main court room. City
Solicitor James H. Torrey was chosen
Judge 11. W. Archbald, ex-Judge P. P.
Smith and Cornelius Comegys were ap
pointed a committee on resolutions
and requested to report forthwith, but
later In the meeting Mr. Comegys re
ported that the committee desired more
extended time and power to present the
resolutions to the family of Judge Seely
and the newspapers. The request was
favorably received and today the reso
lutions will be made public.
Brief addresses eulogistic of the high
moral character, sympathetic nature.
sincerity and worth of Judge Seely
were made by President Hand, Judge
Archbald, City Solicitor Torrey, ex
Judge Smith, Colonel P. L. Hitchcock
and Judge Purdy, of Wayne county. In
a conversational way President Hand,
who has been a friend of Judge Seely
since childhood, related several Inter
esting Incidents of their friendship.
It was deemed unnecessary to ap
point a committee to represent the
Bar association formnlly nt the funeral,
which will be held at 2.15 o'clock thlB
afternoon in Honesdale, from, the fact
that many members of the bar had
slgnilled their purpose of attending.

City Solicitor Torrey, Judge Ounster,
Colonel P. L. Hitchcock, ex-Judge W.

Bridge Contracts Arc Awarded After
a Protracted Session.
Contracts for building the Ironwork
of the two proposed bridges were
awarded last night by a Joint session of
councils. While the report of the streets
and bridges committee in the matter of
awards was udopted unanimously,
there was occasioned a great deal of
quibbling and peanut fllllbustering,
brought about through the efforts of a
few common counellmen.
After President Chittenden of select
council had, on motion of Mr. Sander
son, been chosen to preside over the
joint session the report of the streets
and bridges committee was read. It
recommended that the floors of the
bridges be laid with asphalt and that
the contract on the Linden Street
bridge be awarded to the Edge Moor
Bridge company of Wilmington for
JTiUOU, and that the Spruce Street
bridge contract be awarded to the
Phenlx Bridge company of Piienlxvllle
.Mutter of Right of Way.
Before the vote was polled on the
Linden Street bridge award, Mr. dem
ons expressed a doubt whether the city
had settled the right of way with all
property owners along the western ap
proach of the Linden Street bridge.
Olty Engineer Phillips Informed the
meeting that the city solicitor was
authority for the statement that only
In the case of the Swetland estate was
there any unsigned papers, and that In
this Instance the price of the land had
been agreed upon.
Mr. Battle, at this point, stated that
there was no section In the original
specifications regarding asphalt and
that If such a pavement was contracted
for there should be no reflection cast for
not making the dlscrepency known.
The chair tersely remarked that the
gentleman preceding Mr. Battle had
asked about quite another matter and
suggested that Mr. Battle was out of
order, whereupon the latter seated him
self, and Mr. McLean, of the Seventh
"offered as an amendment that the
ripeelflcatlons be read." Mr. McLean
was declared out of order and the clerk
Instructed to call the vote.
.Mr. Sweeney Lxplnined.
When Mr. Sweeney's name was
reached he voted affirmatively, aft
explaining that he had opposed an
asphalt flooring In committee because
the specifications made no provision for
such flooring. Members Battle and Mc
Lean also voted "yes," and the com
mittee's report was unanimously
Before the resolution awarding the
Spruce Street bridge contract was read,
Mr. Battle's motion, seconded by Mr,
McLean, that the specifications be read
was carried by a vote of 17 to 13. The
reading occupied nearly a half hour,
and when the resolution was finally
adopted unanimously, one of th? most
unnecessary protracted sessions of
councils ever held adjourned. One hour
was consumed In unanimously agreeing
upon a report of one committee.
IT IJROKE UI IN A ROW.
Members of the Common Council Could
A row of a vocal character brought
last night's meeting of common council
to an abrupt and confused adjourn
ment. Following the joint session, the
common branch convened In regular
session. The members, with a few ex
ceptions, had been worked up to
combatative pitch by the oratorical
tactics of Members Battle, Sweeney
McLean, et al., during the Joint session
and during the meeting of the common
branch following, Mr. Molr left the
chamber In llsgust and was followed
by other Republican members.
The Incidents leading up to such a
condition were somewhat exciting and
served as a reminder of the swaddling
epoch of the city when a councllmanic
fracas was not an uncommon ' occur
ranee. In the absence of President
Nealls, Mr. Schadt wus selected to oc
cupy the chair.
Forthwith Was Omitted.
Music began to be felt and heard In
the air when Mr. Battle moved that the
ordinance providing for the annexation
of Mlnooka be referred to the printing
committee with Instructions to report
forthwith. The chair precipitated
war of words by putting the motion
which was carried, without allusion to
forthwith." Mr. Sweeney then re-
minded the chair of his unintentional
error, and the remark brought from
Mr. Robathan a protest against "forth
with" being Included In the motion.
Mr. Battle Joined In the argumen
and upon that gentleman's statement
that he had Included "forthwith" In hi
motion, the objections of Mr. Robathan
But that was only the mllu crescendo
which led up to the real fortissimo ot
the evening. After the committee had
retired the chair Instructed the meeting
to go Into the fourth, fifth, sixth and
seventh orders of business In turn,
While In the seventh order the commit
tee flled Into the chamber nnd Mr
Sweeney Interrupted the reading of an
ordinance to ask that the report of the
committee be received at once.
Molr Raises a Point.
,Mr. Molr remarked that only In the
third order of business could commit
tee reports be received and that, lnas
much as the chair had erred In conduct
Ing the meeting Into the seventh order,
the request of Mr. Sweeney was out
of order.. Mr. Robathan echoed the po
sition assumed by Mr. Molr.
The two Republican members were
being constantly Interrupted and at
one time six members were on the floor
Mr. Norton, the by-sequence chairman
of the printing committee, was clamor
ing for permission to present the report
on the printing of the Mlnooka ordi
nance; Mr. Drier was demanding that
Mr. Norton be recognized; Mr. Sweeney
was trying to make himself heard and
explain his understanding of purlin
mentary law; "Mr. Battle was sftylng
things In a loud voice about "forth
wlths," and Mr. Molr and Mr. Roba
than were rising to points of order or
asking the chair to rule on the question
which Jiad occasioned the disorder.
After tho excitement had prevailed
for several minutes and was at Us
highest, Mr. Schadt ruled that the re
port of the committee should be re
crtved, although no motion had been
made that the session go Into the
third order of business.
"I'll not stand by any such hum
bug," said Mr. Molr, who accompanied
the remark by picking up his coat and
hat and passing from the chamber.
Mr. Robathan followed suit, and Mr,
Godfrey and Mr. Williams, each a Re
publican, arose with the Intention of
departing. , .
Fear of losing a quorum and the de
sire of grasping the last straw brought
Mr. Battle to his feet. Before all the
Republican members could lenve the
room he moved that the meeting ad
journ until this evening. The motion
prevailed through the yotes of the
EXERCISES FOR CHILDREN.
IlclJ in the Lecture Room of Pcnn Avenue
Despite the amount of snow on the
streets a sufficient number of children
attended the exorcises of the Penn Ave
nue Baptist Sunday school last night to
over-crowd the large lecture room.
At 7 o'clock a service of song "The
BeKl Gift" was rendered in the church
when Rev. Warren ('. Partridge and
Superintendent Luther Keller made
suitable addresses. The proceedings
opened with the chorus, "Best of All,"
after whleh E. S. Williams engaged in
prayer. Recitations were then deliv-
red by Florence Drew, "December;"
lurry Rose, "Just for ' Christmas;"
Alice Corwln, "A Week After Christ
mas," and Edith Murphy, "Christmas
y Bells." A quartette consisting of
Misses Annie and Grace Rose und
Charles and Edwin Whittemore gave a
splendid rendition of "Christmas Bells.'
Mrs. Ellen Gates gave a humorous read
Inn entitled, "Christmas Dinner,"
hlch depleted the troubles of a Mrs
Ruggles In preparing her children for
their llrst "dinner out." Miss Bessie
tolden gave n flue recitation of "
Want to Pawn my Dolly," being di
serlptive of a little child who sold her
11 to relieve a poor family on Christ
At the end of the service the company
djourned to the lecture room, where
efreshments wore served and a social
meeting was enjoyed by the large gath
ering. During tho social a pleasing in-
Ident occurred in the presentation of a
fine sword by the Boy's brigade to Cap-
nin Fred. M. Koehler as a Christmas
lft. The pastor made the formal pres
entation, and In a felicitous speech re
ferred to the splendid services of Mr.
Koehler In connection with the brigade
and thanked him for the successful In
terest he had taken in the boys of the
church. "Mr. Koehler suitably re
sponded. In leaving the room the children re
ceived gifts of candy, etc. The primary
department met In the afternoon when
Superintendent Keller presided over a
ery enjoyable meeting and distributed
a large number of gifts.

HOW THE ACCUSED Ol'PENDEl)

Store and Supposed It Was I'uld
for-Proprictor Denies That
Such Wns the Case.
Assistant Secretary Charles A. Wi
ley, of ithe Young Men's Christian as
sociation, of this city, was put on trial
in court before Judge Slttser yesterday,
charged with parjury. Druggist D. S.
Ryan, of Pcnn avenue, was the prose
cutor. Mr. Wiley was represented In
count by City Solicitor James H. Tor
rey and Attorney W. J. Hand. Attor
neys J. Elliot Ross and T. P. Ho'ban
conducted the prosecution.
The ca:io is an outgrowth of the Sun
day crusade brought by Rev. F. A.
Dony last summer against the Sun
day -dealers of this city. On Sunday
May 6, Secretary Wiley stood for a few
minutes fl.tl Spruce 'strtiet and Penn
avenue. He saw some persons whom
he did not know enter Ryan's drug
store, walk up to the soda fountain
and the clerk waited upon them, giv
ing them a glass each of soda for which
one of the party, a young man, paid.
ine next day DrugKint Ryan was
brought before Alderman Post on a
warrant charging a violation of the
law ot 17J4 by keeping his place open
nnd doing business on Sunday. At the
hearing Mr. Wiley testified under oaith
that he saw three persona enter Mr.
Ryan's drug ftore, drink soda, and pay
for the same in coin. The clerk waited
upon the-ni and gave some change back
to one of the persons who drank the
soda. On .this testimony Mr. Ryan al
leged that Secretary Wiley perjured
Ryan Was Treating.
Ho was 'the first witness on the stand
yesterday and he swore that on Sun
day, May 0, t the same time that
Secretary Wiley was standing on the
corner, Frank Callahan and his three
sisters entered the drug store and re
quested to be waited on at the soda
fountain. Druggist Ryun swore that he
drew four glasses of soda and noticed
that Wiley was watching him. Mr.
Callahan took money out of his pocket
and offered to pay for the soda, but
Mr. Ryan told him not to mind, that he
was treating. Mr. Caliahan did not
pay for the soda and these were the
people Secretary Wiley saw, as Mr.
Ryan did not see him hanging around
the place again that day.
Mr. Callahan was put upon the stand
and ilie corroborated Druggist Ryan
regarding' his refusal to take pay for
the soda. Mr. Callahan said the time
he went Into the1 drug store as near as
he PifkM lrnllor.t u-u nlinnt 1rt ...!,. .L-
in tho mornlnc. Pltv Knlleif ne TniTv
moved to take the case out of the Jury's
hands on the idea that the prosecution
had failed to Identify the four people
whom Druggist Ryan alleges were the
ones that Secrut.iry Wiley saw drinking
the soda, as tho ones whom the de
fendant swore he saw. And Mr. Ryan
swore that these peopk entered the
store at. 10 o'clock, when Mr. Wiley
swore before Alderman Post that It
was noon, on that account they could
not be the same persons. Another rea
son that If ft had been Mr. Callahan
who was In the store with his sisters
and he attempted to pay for the soda
drank, the motion of putting his hand
In his pocket to pay for the soda would

Mr. Wiley was the Hint witness and
he testified that he Inferred from 'the
action or tne young man who was
about to pay for the soda thnt he paid
for It. He was not sure that his tenii-
mony before Alderman Post was dl-
reut and positive; that he swore then
that he saw the young man take coin
out of his pocket, lay It on the counter
and receive change back. Colonel F. L.
Hitchcock swore that 'If he su.w a man
go Into a store nnd make a purchase,
go through a motion such as one would
do in taking money from his pock
