PASTOR AND COMMITTEE.
They Met at the Residence of Kt. Re.
Rev. Richard A. Aust, pastor of the
Polish Catholic church on the South
Side, and a committee from those who
Are opposed to his financial policy In
the affair of the parish, met at the
residence of Rt. Rev. Bishop O'Hara
yesterday. The pastor had hla books
with him to show where the money has
bn used, and the committee's visit
was to get an answer from the bishop.
Over twenty-five affidavits have been
made, containing substantially the
same information that was laid before
the bishop heretofore in the nature of
a complaint. The charges are that sev
eral thousand dollars a year are re
ceived by the priest, more than neces
sary to meet the parochial expenses,
and that he has not made a single effort
since he assumed the pastorate of the
church to reduce the debt of $8,000 con
tracted by Rev. A. Snigwlskl, the form
er pastor. There are other debts
amounting to nearly $2,000, and the In
terest on the total Is about $50 a month.
Father Aust refused this week to
turn over the books to the committee,
and they have threatened to begin to
morrow to collect the money paid at the
door by the worshipers who come to
mass and are not pewholders. The com
mittee purposes to follow it up and
when the salary is due each month to
Testerday's visit of the committee not
having resulted in the bishop's consent
to their plan, may deter them from
adopting it. The committee was not
prepared to state whether or not they
will go ahead. It was learned that the
bishop decided to turn the matter Into
the hands of Rt. Rev. Bishop Hoban,
his decision to be final in the matter.
Father Aust refuses to hear anything
at all from the committee. He main
tains that the strife was started up
by a few who are not dutiful members
of the church. '

self and his authority. Colonel Cour
sen. with pcoper courtesy and diplom
acy, refrains from criticising the divi
sion commander, but the battalion and
line officers are not so reticent.
GENERAL. SNOWDEN TALKS.
The Tribune correspondent twice
mght an Interview with General Snow
!en this afternoon. The second effort
.'as successful. General Snowden was
tll that Scrantonlans, especially.would
s Interested In the case, but that one
oint was lacking to make the story
jmplete the exact nature of the mis
doing of Captain Kambeck and Lieu
tenant Smith, which caused arrest. "I
cannot discuss it." was General Snow
den'B remark. He was then told that
the Thirteenth's commandinfr officers
were ignorant of the specific charge.
"Well, you see Colonel Coursen. Tell
him I sent you to him and ask him
about it. It is a matter I cannot dis
cuss," laconically said the general. A
few Irrelevant remarks were massed
and the correspondent took his leave.
Interviews with Colonel Coursen and
other of the Thirteenth's officers did not
reveal anything that might be con
strued as a cause for arrest. From a
knowledge of the whole situation it ap
pears thut Snowden was angered by the
drumming on the field after taps, and
In a rage rode down into camp andj
on finding that Company B had been
out visiting arrested its captain and
Lieutenant Smith, the day commander
of the guard, who admitted the com
pany .within the lines. It also appears
that this rage was Intensified by the
act of the Thirteenth patrol In com
pelling him at the point of the bayonet
to dismount and to repeat the perform
ance after he had returned from the
First brigade, and after he had arrest
ed Lieutenant Smith on his first visit.
The Tnited States of America regula
tions plainly read that a brigade of
ficer of the day, who was Major Barn
ard yesterday, cannot grant permission
for the coming out and going in of de
tails of any sort. The regulations furth
er provide that a horseman shall be
forced to dismount on approai-hlng the
lines after taps. The Thirteenth's
guards, who commanded Snowden to
get off his horse knew their business,
though their actions tiamed Snowden'
anger, and undoubtedly caused hiin to
take the course he did. Among the of
ficers there Is not the slightest doubt
that the division commander was plain
ly wrong and made an Improper use of
his authority. That he had the right
to make the arrest is not questioned,
but that he had no cause for his action
Is a generally accepted fact.
GUARD MOUNT INSPECTION.
There was inspection of the guard
mount this morning by Major Millar, of
Scranton, who is one of the inspectors
of Inspector General Morrell's staff, it
was the best guard mount the Thir
teenth has had since capip opened, and
though It took place in a drizzly rain
the result was 100 points. The com
petition between Companies A and D
to huve their men selected for Colonel
Coin-sen's dally orderlies was lessened
this morning when Harry L. Court
right, of Company II, was chosen. A
and D have each been represented three
times since camp opened. The men
are rooting for the rain to continue to
night as it will lessen their labor In
breaking camp In the morning. If
the tents are wet they will be left stand
ing and will not be packed until thor
oughly dried. In order to complete th?
necessary packing in time to move at
8 o'clock the regiment will begin prep
arations before daylight. Scranton
will be reached late in the afternoon.
Tomorrow's commander of the guard
will be Lieutenant Kuhbach, of Com
pany 13. Major W. 8. Millar will leave
here early and will be In his office In
Scranton by 2 o'clock.
The score of regular army officers
here are delighted with their camp ex
perience. Colonel Elliot said yesterday:
"We get practically no opportunity for
manoeuvering with government forces,
beyond an occasional brigade camp.
We are benefitted in two ways particu
larlyin the privilege of noticing triv
ial defec ts which makes us all the more
alert to Improve our own work in those
Instances, and our younger officers gain
practical knowledge of division man
oeuvers and formations which in the
regular service they can observe only
in case of war."
It Is Interesting to watch the hos
pitality of Governor Hastings at night
after the military routine is ended and
the many tents at division headquarters
are occupied or surrounded by hun
dreds of headquarters lady visitors.
The governor Is usually smoking a
cigar, wearing a straw hat and ming
ling Informally amoag the big party.
When It is time for taps he assists his
staff In helping the ladles into car
riages and is as sollcltlous about
seats and wraps as anybody at head
quarters. Newspaper correspondents
find no difficulty in gaining his atten
tion after once reaching hin A.T.R.

SCHA1 -ft KOEHLER,
July 24. What was to have been a
glorious wind up of the camp has devel
oped into a dreary,' muggy close of the
greatest national guard encampment
ever held In this country. As though
orry for the glorious weather of yes
terday, Jupiter Pluvius poured the tor
rents of his wrath on the camp today,
and the streets of the various organiza
tions when day broke were bogs of sli
my mud or rivers of muddy water.
The parade grounds were veritable
lakes, and all day long rain fell, drench
ing tents and men, until they had not a
dry stitch about them. The great divi
sion drill and the magnificent review,
which were to be given for General
Nelson A. Miles, commander of the Uni
ted States army, could not be given,
but the general and Governor Lowndes,
of Maryland, and many other distin
guished guests were at division head
quarters, but their only view of Penn
sylvania's crack guards was obtained
by a splashing ride in the torrents of
rain through the brigade camps.
'When the day closed it was still
raining, but the boys of the Second
and Third brigades have marched out
of their camiis and are on their way
home. The First brigade remains over
night. Ueneral Miles and Governor
Lowndes left the camp this evening and
Governor Hastings will leave ut 10
oclock tomorrow morning.

When the police were taking Carter
to jail his young and comely wife clung
to his neck, hugging and kissing him

Kxtreine Depression in Stocks Caused
by Shrinkage of Gold Reserve.
New York, July 24. R. O. Dun and
company will say tomorrow In their
Weekly Review of Trade:
The week began with extreme depres
sion In stock and speculative markets,
uu lng to the heavy- outgo of gold.
Slocks fell rapidly and on Monday aver
aged lower than at any time this year
or during the Venezuela alarm In De
cember, when the lowest average was
$ 15.01) for railroads and $46.02 for trusts,
but at the close of Monday averages
were $43.75 for railroads and $43.00 for
trusts. Then came sharp recovery with
the union of banks to turn gold into
the treasury and of international bank
ers to control foreign exchange and
the averages rose on Friday to $44.06
and $44.44. Business of all kinds has
been considerably uffected by the mon
etary conditions and Is slower to im
prove. The produre markets have been seri
ously depressed, lard making the lowest
quotations on record, corn falling to
32 cents, wheat to 61 and cotton to
8.12. There has been a slight recovery
in corn, cotton and a cent In wheat,
but the main cause of low prices re
mains, namely prospects of (urge crops
with heavy stock on hand. The dos
ing of Iron furnaces continues and yet
I'ticus fall as unsold stocks are the
lutwst ever known, while the demand
Is remarkably light. Southern No. 1
at the cast is nominally $11.1.'.'. and Penn
sylvania $12, with besseiner $11.75 at
Pittsburg and Grey forge $9.75, but even
these and all prices for finished pro
ducts are shaiwd to secure business.
The general demoralization is partly
due to growing belief that large com
binations which still hold up prices
cannot hold them long. Failures for the
week have been 281 In the United States
against 291 last year.
TOO MUCH JOHNSON.

Montrose, July 24. A few weeks ago
there came by the evening train, one II.

$10,000 of Insurance from a local insur
ance agent, and with him went to Heart
Lake last evening. They stayed at the
Spring house, and this morning when
the local Insurance man awoke at 7.30,
he found that "too much Johnson" had
vanished during the hours when good
men sleep. The Insurance man quickly
drove to Montrose and Informed Land
lord Depue, of the Turbell house. Tele
grunis were Immediately sent to differ

excellent address; he weighs about 173
pounds; eyes very black.

After Obtaining All the Information
Possible They Came to ibe Conclu

Firm Was the One They Wanted.
That tirade Crossing Injunction
Before Judge Edwards yesterday tes
timony was taken in the Injunction pro
ceedings of the Scranton Supply and
Machinery company to restrain the
Scranton poor board from awarding to
H. B. Coho & Co., of New York, the
contract for erecting an electrical plant
at the Hillside home. The bid of Coho
& Co. was $5. 9:17.50 and of the Scranton
Supply and Machinery company $5,814.
20. Attorney W. W. Watson and Major
Everett Warren appeared on behalf of
the complainant and Attorney John F.
Scragg and City Solicitor Torrey for
the board. All of the directors of the
district were present.

company; V. S. Laiif,stalT, president
of the poor board; Frederick Fuller,
member of the Home committee and V.
H. Taylor, president of the Supply com
pany, were the witnesses examined.
THEIR REASONS GIVEN.
The members of the poor board tes
tified that they awarded the contract to
Coho & Company because they believed
the "Ideal" engine that firm will furnish
was the best offered and thut in connec
tion with their dynamos the plant
would be cheaper for the district than
the "lmyetlul" engine and the dynamo
which the Scranton Supply and Ma
chinery company proposed to furnish.
The "Ideal" engine, the members claim.
Is a self oiler and they further maintain
that the "Imperial" is a new engine
v hose powers have not as yet been
The witnesses on the part of the Sup
ply company set forth the details of
their bid, conversations with members
of the board and the strong points of
the "Imperial" engine. The case will
be argued Monday morning and Judge
Edwards strongly Intimated yesterday
that it will not take him long to dis
pose of It.

Suburban Traction company was re
sumed. County Surveyor Haiti was
subjected to a lengthy examination und
cross-examination. In his. opinion the

hearing then adjourned until next Tues
