They wene tried this week for selling

found guilty of the first two charges.
The Arbeiter Vereln is a clun and it
was offered as a defense that these
men as agents of the club had the
privilege of furnishing beer to the
guests of the club.' The prosecution
was on the ground that the guests had
to buy a ticket for admission to the
hull and that this was virtually receiv
ing pay for the liquor furnished. At
torney John F. SiTagff asked the court
to give binding Instructions for a ver
dict of not guilty; this Judge Ounster
refused to do, but on the contrary he
directed the Jury to convict the de
fendants. The defense did not ueny

Mr. Jones the commonwealth. Last
November the prosecutor was papering
the saloon of Michael Oiilcsple on
Brick avenue and he heard Gillespie
say that Oolden, who lived upstairs,
was good for nothing more than sit
ting around the stove reading the
newspaper. Jones was kind enough to
go and tell Oolden's wife what was
said, and when she told her husband
he went to see Jones to find out if it
were Just what Gillespie said. Jones
denied what Mrs. Golden said he told
her and he also told her husband that
she was a liar. This was too much for
Oolden and he struck him a blow in
the face. The Jury waa out at ad

It Called Forth a Moat Vigorous Protest
from Mr. Gibbons bat Neverthe

The amount of the Item for outdoor
relief the auditors thought might seem
large, but. to use the words ot tne
report, "we believe it ruiiy jusunea
and that It was expended In cases
where the relief was absolutely needed.
Considering the sufferings of the poor
and the growth of the district during;
the past two years, we do not see how
outdoor relief could be more Judiciously
given." Further on in tne report me
auditors say:

and found everything In first class or
der and their Investigations there led
them to express their opinion that no
institution In the state is more care
fully managed and at no other Institu
tion do the inmutes receive better treat
ment. The report was signed by W.
J. Costello, C. H. van Stort-h and Frank
T. Okell. auditors.
The following resolution Introduced
by Mr. Fuller brought forth warm dis
sension and a roll call vote:
itesolved. That In order that the routine
work and inanRKetnent at the home and on
the farm may not be Interfered with dur
ing the secular days of the week, here
after all reltuious services shall be held
and conducted on Sunday, in the follow
ing manner: Commencing Feb. 10 by the
Catholic denomination; next following
Humbiy by the Methodists; next follow
ing Sunday by the Catholics; next follow
ing Sunday by the Presbyt-rlans, and so
on In the same alternate oruer of suc
cession. Mr. Olbbons strenuously objected to
the measure on the grounds that It
would greatly Inconvenience the
Catholic clergymen, who had charge
of the station; possibly it might be so
inconvenient that he could not attend
to It and consequently the Inmates
would be deprived of the great boon
which they have enjoyed for the last
ten yeara. He explained that the priest
who visits the farm has comparatively
large congregations which demand his
attention on Sundays and tnat unless
he could be allowed to conduct services
m some week day he might not be
able to visit the pluce at all. Then Mr.
Gibbons coinbatted the statement of
Mr. Fuller that the work at the home
would be materially Interfered with
by an occasional week day service. In
answer to Mr. Glbbon'n question. Su
perintendent Beemer stated that Mr.
fuller's contention was quite true.
Whenever mass Is celebrated at the
home on a Week day, the routine of the
place Is disarranged for half a day.
ItcAuiiitino Wi-s AdopioJ.
Nevertheless Mr. Gibbons insisted on
consulting the convenience of the
clergy If It does cost the district, a few
pennies. "They ought to have a little
time for prayer," said Mr. Gibbons, re
ferring to the Inmates. "There's none
of us who have too much, time for
prayer." Mr. Gibbons moved to lay
the matter over till the next meeting
and promised to see Bishop O'Hara in
the meantime to ascertain If a priest
could be sent from Scranton on Sun
days. Mr. Murphy seconded the mo
tion and urged the board not to deal
with the matter hastily, but the mo
tion was lost and resolution passed by
a vote of 4 to 3: Ayes, Fuller. Shotten,
Swan, Iangstaff; nays, Williams, Mur
phy, Gibbons. "The solid four," re
marked Mr, Gibbons, when the vote
was announced.
Secretary Lynott announced the re
ceipt from the state department of a
warrant for $5,"-'1.09, which Is the
stale's contribution to the care In
digent Insane in this district for six
months. This is the beneficent result
of the law passed by the last legisla
ture through the Instrumentality of the
Scranton board and its aggressive sec
retary, K. J. bynett.
Superintendent Beemer reported 166
persons in the almshouse. During the
month of January sixteen were admit
ted, nine were discharged and four
died. Dr. I.?en F. Evuns the resident
physician, reported having treated 90
sane and 47 insane patients during the
month. During January fluht patients
were admitted, and on eb. 1 there
were remaining in the asylum 160 pa
tient!!. An Increase of Sa'arv.
Mr. Shotten, adlng for the finance
committee, recommended that the sal
uty of Uookk keeper John K. Williams
be Increased from J 50 to $75 a month,
but the mutter was laid over owing to
objections on the part of Mr. Gibbons
and Mrs. Swan, who considered $75 a
month and board as pretty high
wuges for a bookkeeper. The fact that
Mr. Olbbons and Mrs. Swan had tlnul
ly found a question on which they
could agree, no doubt Influenced the
board in its action. Mrs. Swan will
suggest at tho next meeting that the
salary be Increased $15 a month.
