1h Society Will Meet.
Tm Hyde Park Literary and Debat
ing society will meet as usual next
Monday night by order of the president.
The vote of the "office" meeting Mon
day night was 6 to 2. It is said that
four of the six who voted "aye," mis
understood the aim of the other two
who called the meeting to order. A
member of the society has this to say
In last night's Truth:
"Disgruntled members of the Hyde
Park Literary and Debating society,
among them those who were responsi
ble for their own dissatisfaction, met
clandestinely last evening, and without
nny scintilla of nuthority preeded to
'disband the society.' That they were
without power to act Is evidenced by
the fact that the regularly constituted
officers of the society knew nothing of
the 'snap' meeting, and were in the free
library awaiting the arrival of a quo
rum." ' Concort Friday Evening.

Some time between 3 o'clock and day
light yesterday morning the tailoring
establishment of A. J. Mulderlg Co.,
on Plttston avenue, was entered by
burglars und live overcoats, five suits
of clothes, two pairs of trousers and
two vests were stolen, all of the value
of nearly J:!00. The front door was
pried open with a bar, and the paneling
Is broken where the lever was Inserted.
Mr. Mulderlg has not the first suspicion
regarding the Identity of his unbidden
visitors, and he Is grateful that they
took as little as they did, since his
large stock of piece goods was at their
disposal. They might have helped
themselves to $500 worth more if they
had the means at hand to carry the
A new overcoat belonging to Mr. Mul
derlg and one owned by the tailor,
Anthony Walsh, were taken in addition
to those already mentioned. The store
was closed culte late at night and at
3 a. in. a young man employed in Mr.
Mulderig's grocery store adjoining,
came home from a social In the central
city. The place had not been entered
up to that time. No tracks of the
thieves are left behind to guide the
police in muklng an Investigation. At 8
o'clock Inst evening nothing hud been
learned which would Indicate by whom
the burglary was perpetrated. A gang
of young men who have not worked in
some time are suspeiAed and a watch
will be kept on them.

letter of resignation from the pastorate
of the Evangelical Church of Peace,

mission of going around settling the
outstanding obligations left ainsatis
fled when Lunge took his departure for
the city of Brotherly Love. Rev. Mr.
Lange was almost Idolized by his con
gregation and some of them tried to
effect a reconciliation, tending to bring
him back to the Church of Peace. This
has proved ineffectual and as soon as
the few current bills are liquidated and
arangements made for the transfer of
the household furniture to Philadel

will likely lieur of him In the future. He
made many warm friends here during
his charge of the Hickory Street Pres
byterian church and as pastor of the
Church of Peace, but he declares that
his usefulness was nullified by a few
who went about striving to beset his
path with trials and tribulations.

The funeral of Miss Mary A. O'Boyle,
of Orchard street, was held yesterday
morning at 9 o'clock, at which hour a
requiem mass was celebrated at St.
Peter's cathedral by Rev. J. J. B. Fee
ley. Interment was made In Hyde Park
cemetery. Rev. Father Feeley preached
a sermon from the text, "She was
among those who followed the Lnmb
whithersoever He went." Yesterday
was the feast of St. John Chrysostom,
so named on account of his eloquence,
and the speaker wished he had. the
power of expressing his thoughts like
the saint In order that the virtues and
beautiful life of the deceased might be
properly described. It was also the
feast of St. Agnes, whose purity has
blazoned the pages of church history.

WRECK OF THE HAWKINS.
Story of the Ill-Luck That Followed
thei Cuban Fillbustcrer Seventy Men
Hoscucd by n Tug.
New York, Jan. 28. The ocean tuff
Fred 11. Dnlzell brought to this city this
afternoon 70 men supposed to be Cuban
filibusters whom Captain Denyse picked
up from the schooner Leander V. Beebe
at 9 o'clock this morning; at a point ten
miles due east of the stranded steam
ship S. Paul o.T Iong Branch. Captain
Donyse was lying off Lrfjnjr Branch
early this morning looking for a tow.
At 8 o'clock he sighted the three mas
ter schooner Leander V. Hcebe, from
Baltimore to Boston. An American
liagr. Inverted, flew from her rigging
and the Dalzcll run up and hailed her.
"The schooner's deck" said Captain
Denyse tonight swarmed with men tin
all stages of undress. Wretchedness
was written In every line of their faces.
Some of them were without shoes and
nearly all were minus coats.
"What price do you want to take sev
enty men into New York?" shouted
the skipper of the Eeebe.
"I told him," continued Captain
Denyse, "and we made the bargain. I
ran up alongside, and' after an hour's
danerous work, got the- seventy men
on the Dalzcll. After the tug got un
der way It was agreed that I put one
man oft at Pier 8t North river, and I did
so. He said he was a gunner. I did
not catch his name. None of them made
any Becret about their efforts to reach
Cuba and their flrrht for her freedom.
The most dejected man on board was
an old man. who told me he was Callx
to Oarcia, and was In charge-of the ex
pedition. He was accompanied by his
son. Carlos Garcia, and seemed com
pletely broken down. He said that the
Cubans had played one of their strong
est cards of the revolution In sending
out this expedition, and that more than
$200,000 worth of arms and ammunition
had been lost by the sinking of the
He then elated to Captain Denyse the
story of the wreck. He said:
"We loaded the steamer James W.
Hawkins for the expedition at Port
Morris. All day the hatches were
closed and nobody had any suifplrion
that we bad thousands of dollars worth
of arms In her hold. All the work was
done at dead night,. We sailed on
Friday nfght and went put by Long
Island Bound. We had excelent weather
until Sunday' when if begad to get
rough. On Monday morning early the
vessel sprima a leak. The waves and
wind Just .cined the seams. - Pumps
were manned but they soon choked with
coal and became ueeless. Then the men
got buckets and balled for their lives.
The water gained Inch by Inch and
finally the rue! .went overboard and
then the cost arms and ammunition.
It broke our hearts to throw those arms
away but we had to keep the vessel
afloat somehow. - Gradually the Hawk
ins settled down and at 11.30 o'clock on
Monday morning we took to thelife
boats and deserted the sinking steamer.
Half an hour later the Beebe hove In
sight and took us on board. At the
time the Hawkins went down she was
forty-five southeast of Barnegat and
the sea was very wild."
Captain Denyse said the men saved
nothing but two valises filed with
United States bank notes. TheBe were
In the possesion of General Garcia.
A STORY ON MKS. KENDAL.
They are still telling the story In Lon
don, with shameless satisfaction over
every detail, and they call It a good one
on Mrs. Kendal, pointing out with
pride that not only is it the sole occa

be hopelessly routed and put to silence,
but also that one simple, modest man
caused her discomfiture. History does
not say to whom the dinner was given,
but among the guests appeared good

well-known cases of deflection from

C:DAN HISTORY IN BRIEF.
Spain colonized the Island In 1511.
In VM and again in 1554 Havana was de
stroyed by the French.
Mutanzus was tho first city to fall Into
the hands of the Insurgents.
Cruelty and Injustice to the natives has
always been the creed of the Spaniards.
The present revolution began Feb. ill,
181C, when the republic was proclaimed by
In IMS President Polk offered Bpain a
million liollura for the island, wnii-h offer
Tho constitution of Cuba, modeled on
that of the I'nited States, was adopted
The revolution of 1308 lusted ten years
before Spain succeeded In compromising
by promising reforms.
A triangului' blue union, having a single
star and five stripes, three of red and two
oT white, is the flag of the republic.
Very little reliable news of the present
Insurrection can be obtained, owing to
the censorship of tho press and the men
dacity of the leaders of both skies.
The first serious revolution took place in
18W, under -the 'leadership of Narclso Lo

free the island from Spanish control.
