Other Members of tbe Association, How
ever, Are Disposed to Muke Light of
the Reformer's Criticisms und Vote
for l'eaco und Uurinony,
New York, March 11. According to
programme the resolutions reflecting
upon the conduct of Dr. Charles l'urk
hurst In the matter of his criticism of
the Xew York Presbytery's action with
regard to the sale of the church "Sea
and Land," were offered this afternoon
at the monthly meeting of that body
In the lecture room of the First l'res
byterlan church. Dr. Parkhurst was
absent, having left the city for a two
weeks' rest, but his friends were there
Dr. Chambers, having the resolutions
In charge, secured the tloor at the open
ing of the session. He read u long
statement based upon the records of the
Presbytery, and giving In detail the
facts in regard to the proposed sale
of the property and the terms of the
occupancy, pending the sale, by the
Madison Square church, of which lr.
Parkhurst is pastor. Dr. John Hall
opposed the resolution In the Interest of
peace and harmony, lie objected to
the references in the preamble to Dr.
Parkhurst and the Madison Square
church. He usked to have the names
"Authorize the officers of the presby
tery," he said, "to print and circulate
the statement as far as you wish, but
omit all personal reference to a brother
whom we love und respect. Let the
statement rest on the facts, and let the
newspaper interviews attributed to this
brother alone. The public will be able
to compare these statements of facts
authorised by us with the newspaper
references and adjudicate upon them as
they see fit."
Dr. Mulluly Wants Vengeance.
Dr. Mullally. whose objections to the
recent vote of approval of Dr. Park
hurst's reform methods created such
a stir in the presbytery several weeks
ago, was on his feet In an instant.
"To my mind," he cried, "the preamble
is the most important. It is a ques
tion of a member of the presbytery
arraigning his presbytery before the
public Instead of before the Session,
and charging It with crime, with a
misappropriation of funds, with a vio
lation of contract, with being not wor
thy of confidence. An honored pastor
of a church rises to object because the
member who does this Is named. Are
,e to be the prey of a man who makes
yiis living by sensational writing? An
'individual has arraigned the jtfepbXi.
".ery, and an Individual shall be named.
If I had my way I would briug him
before the bar of this court and make
Dr. Francis Brown, Dr. Duffield. Dr.
Buchanan and other pastors opposed
the resolution which had been altered
by Dr. Chambers to meet Dr. Hall's
st'sestlon. Dr. Buchanan thought it I
w unnecessary and undignified for
the presbytery to exonerate Itself from
alleged criticisms spoken to an un
known reporter on a mere rumor of
publishing a statement. Dr. Atter
bury agreed with Dr. Buchanan, and
his mitlon to lay the resolution as
amended on the table was carried by
a vote of 67 to 36. Many of the con
servative members of the presbytery
voted with the liberals on this motion.
The presbytery voted against tne
proposed overture from Cincinnati to
reduce the assessment for general as
sembly expenses, which now amounts
to about $50,000 per annum.
Dr. Parkhurst Talks.
Rev. Dr. Parkhurst was seen at his
home tonight by a reporter who noti
fied him of the proceedings of the pres
bytery. Dr. Parkhurst said:
"It is passing strange that the pres
bytery should have taken this action in
regard to the Church of the Sea and
Land, after last week deciding to sell
the property. If the church Is to be
sold and disrupted, of what use Is It
to Investigate It. I regard the whole
matter as Inexpressably sad. Our sole
object has been to extend the Evangeli
cal work 'we carried on In the East
Side to the South Side. Our aim has
been to preach the Gospel of Jesus
Christ to the people In that section of
the city as well as on the East Side.
We went to the presbytery and told
of our alms and purposes. They met
the approval and sanction of that body.
Jt our occupancy of the church of the
Sea and Land was to be for only one
year, was It probable that we should
have built a foundation for a 10-story
building, where one for a half story
would suffice? No. We relied on the
promise given by the presbytery that
we should have a renewal of five years
At the expiration of the present year,
and we worked accordingly. We be
lieve we were accomplishing good re
sults. We had recently canvassed
right men to secure a pastor, but, of
course, no pastor will come now. The
church hitherto has been unable to se
cure a pastor on account of the vacil
lating policy of the presbytery.

Say the Debt Is Due Since 1879.
Speelul to the Scrunton Tribune.
Wllkes-Uarre, March 11. The com
missioners of Luzerne county will make
an effort to collect a debt of $45,000 they
claim has been due them by Lucku
wauna county since 1STS. With the ue
cruod Interest they contend that Lack
awanna is now In their debt to the
amount of about $W.000. The princi
pal Is Lackawanna's share of the In
debtedness of Luzerne at the time the
new county was erected.
In 1S79 the commissioners of the two
counties met In an endeavor to udjust
the Indebtedness of the new county of
Lackawanna to Luzerne. Meetings
were held that lasted for several days.
The Luzerne county commissioners
claimed that in the indebtedness of Lu
zerne existing at the time Lackawanna
was ereoted. no deductions should be
made from Lackawanna's share of the
gross amount for or on account of the
money due Luzerne county; ensh on
hand In the treasurer office of Lu
zerne; personal property owned by the
county; real estate owned by Luzerne
The Lackawanna county commission
ers tiled their objections as follows:
They claimed that the debt should be
deducted from the value of all prop
erty of every nature owned by Luzerne
county at a fair valuation, and that the
remainder. If, any, should represent the
debt. Upon this point the commis

Apparently Pleased Because She Will See
America No .More.
New York. March 11. Countess Dl
vonne arrived here yesterday and today
sailed for France on La Bretagne. She
is free at last from the bitter struggle
with her mother, the widow of the late
Colonel Audenrled, of Washington.
"Yes," said she, with a hauteur she
did not attempt to conceal when ques
tioned as to the results of her long
Tesaf struggle with her mother, "I am
going to rejoin my husband, and I shall
never trouble myself to return to Amer
ica again. Indeed, that is one of the
terms upon which even this little al
lowance of $8,000 a year was granted
me. My alleged extravagances in
Paris were all my mother's doings. I
had been brought up to gratify my
every whim. One of the terms Is that
I must never see my mother again. I
wish my friends in America to know
before I sail that the Count Dlvonne
Is not In the least at fault In what
I have done. He has always urged me
to live less extravagant."
The countess was followed to New
York by agents of her mother, who had
the passage tickets and enough funds
to last her on the voyage over. They
had been Instructed not to allow the
countess to get possession of them till
she was aboard La Hretagne and the
ship was about to sail.

The Famous Parisian Dressmaker lias
Paris, March 11. Worth, the famous
dressmaker, Is dead. Charles Frederick
Worth, the most celebrated of all Pari
sian dressmakers, was singularly
enough, a native of England, but the
only queen In all Europe who never
ordered a toilette from him Is the one
of whom he was born a subjpet.
He was born at Itourne, In Lincoln
shire, In 1S23. His father was a solic
itor with a good private fortune, which
he lost In speculation. At the age of
13, young Worth went to the great dry
goods house of Swan and Kilgar, In
London, and remained there for seven
years, during which time he did all the
work of an ordinary apprentice. In
this large establishment he developed
and perfected his appreciation of the
productions of the French milliners and
After Worth went to Parish he was
employed for twelve 'years In a silk
house, after which he started business
for himself and his artistic taste soon
made him the autocrat of dress In the
world of fashion.

Indianapolis, 1 ml.. Murch 12. The
lndianu legislature ended in u riot to

constitution to hold a bill three work
ing days before vetoing or approving

This proportion has been exceeded

Carbondale, March 11. Anthony
Golden, of the West Side, has recently
been employed In No. 1 slope with his
partner, Anthony Horan. On account
of the recent settling of the lower lifts
of the workings, Golden und Horan
were given a chamber In the drift. On
Saturday morning Mr. Golden became
uncomfortably warm while at work
and removed all of his outer garments.
He got through his work about 10
o'clock on Suturday morning and leav
ing his coat In his chamber made a
visit to a neighboring working, inteiid
fhg to soon return and take his coat
and go home, but he did not return.
Not being familiar with his new place
Golden lost his way, and as he tried to
find his way buck he seemed to go
further In the wrong direction.
He finally wandered Into some old
workings, where no human being had
been In years. The rails had long
been removed and the few remaining
props were fast rotting away. The
lost miner wandered on through the
deserted caverns until nearly exhaust
ed. The only clothing he had on was
his undershirt and trousers, and he
soon became chilled through.
