CONCERT FOR THE
BENEFIT OF Y. W. C. A.
Number of Well Known Artists Had
Numbers on Programme Con
cert a Pronounced Success.
The much-tafked-of, concert for the
benefit of the Young Women's Chris
tian association came off last night
with more than anticipated success.
The programme was slightly changed
in the rendering, but was beyond criti
cism in its excellence and Interest and
the largo audience assembled at the
Bicycle club house made no reserve in
'Much credit Is due Miss Florence
Richmond for her untiring efforts In
securing talent for this splendid enter
tainment. She also acted as accom
panist during the evening.
A feature of the programme was the
'cello playing of Mr. Tom C. Rippard,
of AVilkes-Barre. Everyone likes 'cello
music, as every one is thrilled and
swayed by a rich contralto voice, and
Mr. Rippard's selections were so well
chosen and so beautifully rendered that
they were not surpassed by any num
ber of tho evening. He played a Fan
tasle, by Servais, full of passionate ten
derness and weird Interludes. As an
encore he gave the dainty, airy "Danse
Hollandalse," so well known by Victor
Herbert's admlrois, following with a
brilliant Tarentelle by Fischer. That
ho is an artist with this wonderful In
strument was never so fully realized
in Seranton as on this occasion.
The quartette composed of Mrs.
O'Brien, Mrs. E. Helzman-Rundle,
contralto of Elm Park church; Messrs.
Watklns and Stephens, gave delightful
numbers, their voices being admirably
balanced. Particularly charming was
the Nevln composition of Eugene
Field's "Wynken, Blynken and Nod,"
and the "Good-Night,"' from Martha,
has not been excelled by any profes
sionals on a Seranton stage.
Mrs. O'Brien and Mrs. Rundle sang
with excellent effect the "Venetian
Love Song." Mrs. O'Brien's lovely,
powerful soprano voice seems to lose
nothing since she Is heard so seldom in
public and never perhaps did she give
greater pleasure than last night, with
Mrs. Bundle's Jlexible contralto as a
foil. The latter sang two solos, receiv
ing the heartiest recalls. Her middle
register is especially pleasing and her
enunciation Is marked In its clearness.
Mrs. Stephens' tenor solo, "Dream
Thee of a Day," was one of the best
selections of the evening. The trio
with Mr. Watklns, 'Mrs. O'Brien and
Mrs. Stephens gave unusual scope for
dramatic effect and careful shading.
It was one of tiro distinct successes
of the programme. It was greatly re
gretted that Mr. John T. Watklns, be
cause of Indisposition, was unable to
sing the solo announced.
Miss Cora Morris Griffin as a mono
logulst was heard with much pleasure.
She is versatile In her accomplish
ments. She Is attractive and gifted.
The stage decorations were lavish
and tasteful and were the kind contri
bution of Florist Clark.
REV. J. K. DIXON'S ANSWER.
Eiled in Massachusetts to Offset
Charges in Heir's Petition.
Rev. Joseph K. Dixon, formerly pas
tor of the Penn Avenue Baptist church,
and his counsel, General Edgar B.
Champlln, have filed answers In Boston
to the charges contained in the peti
tion of Grant A, Ammerman and Mary
T. Aminei man, heirs of the late Ella
Ammerman, that $50,000 In bonds which
had been transferred by Mrs. Animer
nian to Mr. Champlln, as a bequest to
Rev. Dixon under her will, be returned
Tho clergyman alleges that no will of
the deceased other than tho one pro
bated in Worcester has ever been ac
credited anywhere. Ho admits that the
$50,000 was transferred to 'Mr. Champ
lln for him, but denies that there wss
any undue influence on his part. Mr.
Champlln admits the transfer of the
bonds, and says tho matter was flist
suggested to him by Mrs. Ammerman
und that Rev. Dixon was not aware of

TESTIMONY IN SIX
WAS HEARS YESTERDAY BE

Several of the Cases Were of n Very
Sentimental Nature Chester M.
Butts Is for the Second Time a Re
spondent In a Divorce Case His
Wife Soys That He Treated Her In
n Cruel Manner Pease's Wife Left
Him When He Became Poor.
Testimony In a numhpr of divorce
cases was heard before Judge John P.
Kelly In chambers yesterday. Severn!
of the cases were sensational In tho
extreme. The most notable In that re
spect wus the case of Thomas II. Ev
ans, of this city, against Margaret H,
Ev.tns, who, it is alleged, Is now living
with another man at Wilson Creek,
above Carbondale. She has been sepa
rated from her husband for two years
and during that time has given birth
to a child of which her husband swears
he Is not the father.
John Allen, of Wilson Creek, testified
that on a dozen or more occasions he
has had Illicit relations with Mrs. Ev
ans In the neighborhood of Wilson
Creek. Thomas J. Evans and Mar
garet Evans, father and mother of the
llbellnnt, testified to having .seen his
wife abuse their son In 11 most vile
manner. She also threatened to cut his
heart out, they say.
INTRODUCED AS HIS WIFE.
Mrs. Elizabeth T. Cole testified that
her husband, H. W. Cole, from whom
she seeks to be divorced, has been un
faithful to her. They were married In
Honesdale in 1S79 and he left her about
18SS and came to Seranton. She went
to Niagara Falls and while there '"heard
that her husband was living with
Flora Kimball, who was once convict
ed of unlawful relations. She came
here and found that what she heard
John Moloney testified that Cole In
troduced the Kimball woman to him
as his wife and Miss Bertha Tibblts
and Mrs. Annie Tibblts, the sister and
mother of the libellant, gave corrobora
tion of the story she told. The testi
mony In both of these cases was taken
by Attorney C. A. Battenberg.
Ollle B. Makley, who was married at
Newton on Feb. 4, 1S90, to Wllford
Makley, told a story of revolting cruel
ty. They began housekeeping at Dur
yea, but after a time moved to Belle
vue, where they lived until March 3,
1900, when Mrs. Makley said she had
to leave her husband because of his
cruelty to her. He was in the habit
of drinking heavily, finding fault with
her meals, cajled her vile names and
frequently kicked and beat her. He
was in the habit of keeping company
with lewd women. She saw him with
them and when she pleaded with him
to stop he told her it was none of her
business. After she left his house he
installed a woman of evil repute to take
Henry Davis occupied half of the
double house in which the Makleys
lived. He often heard sounds whicn
Indicated that Makley was abusing his
wife and when he chlded him for it
Mokloy said his wife was a good house
keeper, but was always going fo pray
er meetings and no good ever came of
Mrs. Julia Potter told of her mar
riage to Howard Potter, 'March, 14, 189G,
at Dunmore, and of his subsequent
cruelty. They lived together until
June, 1S99, when they separated, Pot
ter failing to provide for his wife and
child. Since they separated she went
to him several times and asked him to
support herself and their child, but he
refused to do it and said he would not
live with her again.
Mrs. Caroline Davies and Mrs. Wil
liam Decker corroborated to some ex
tent the story of Mrs. Potter about the
treatment she received from her hus
band. Chester M. Butts was the respondent
in a divorce case brought by his wife,
Lillian A. Butts. This is tho second
time that Chester has been In that
unfortunate position. Mrs. Butts testi
fied that she was married to Butts In
BInghamton on Feb. 17, 1S98, and they
began housekeeping In Green Ridge.
They lived together until Jan. 2 of this
year, when Mrs, Butts said she was
forced to leave hirrj. He kicked her on
a number of occasions and on one
time assaulted her on the public
Constable W. N. Cole testified to
having heard Butts make threats
against his wife, and Mrs. M. Ander
son, mother of Mrs. Butts, testified that
she saw the marks on her daughter's
body from blows administered by the
husband and that her daughter came
to her house with her child when she
was compelled to leave her husband.
H. C. Pease, who Is trying to get a
divorce from Rosalie Pease, who Is 20
years his junior, testified that his wife
lefl him because he Is no longer as
prosperous as he was in the days when'
lie wooed her. They were married at
Worcester, Mass., In 1889, where he
was at that' tlmo engaged in the manu
facturing business. Ho failed and af
ter a time they located ut Green Ridge.
A TEMPERANCE ORATOR.
They wero not wealthy enough to
keep servants and agreed to do their
own work. Mrs. Pease was absent so
often from homo making temperance
speeches thut for months at a time he
did not see her. Finally they sepa-

BRUNING HELD IN BAIL.
Will Have to Answer the Charge of
Forgery at Court.
A hearing In the case of William
Brunlng, who Is charged by tho Adams
Express compuny with having fraudu
lently obtnlned, In conjunction with
II. II. Dorsey, some $2,000 from tho
Colliery Engineer company, was held
Inst night before Alderman Millar, who,
at the conclusion, held the prisoner In
$1,000 ball for his appearance In court.
Brunlng was arrested some two
weeks ago on the charge of embezzle
ment, nnd the heating then held was
continued until Inst night. Before it
was resumed last night tho charge of
embezzlement was withdrawn by As
sistant District Attorney Thomas who
appeared for the prosecution and the
charge of forgery substituted.
The modus operandi by which It is
alleged the money was obtained wus
thoroughly gone over In The Tribune
two weeks ago. The witnesses exam
ined were J. A. Hodges and Edward
O. Arthur, of tho Colliery Engineer
company, and J. W. Tltman, local
manager of the Adams Express com
pany. Mr. Tltman said that when the
alleged Irregularities were first dis
covered Brunlng came to him and
wanted to settle to get out of trouble.
Ho offered $150 nnd finally $500. The
alderman held Brunlng In $1,500 ball
for court, his father becoming his
ARE STILL AFTER
Five Persons Were Arraigned Before
Mayor Moir Yesterday and Vari
ous Fines Imposed on Them.
Mayor Molr's war on the speakeasies
Is now being conducted with tremend
ous vigor, and yesterday five more
offenders against the new ordinance
were arraigned before his honor and
given a hearing.
Mrs. Mary Hayes, of 211 Stone ave
nue, was fined $."0; Mrs. Anna Becker,
of 1018 Stafford avenue, was fined S10.
but later the fine was remitted: Will
Vogel. of 1403 Prospect avenue, was
fined $25; Charles Beck, of 822 Meadow
avenue, was fined $25; Martin Rear
don, of 709 Crown avenue, was fined
$30. In addition, each of the defend
ants was saddled with the costs, $"..'0
In each case.
When Mrs. Hayes was put on the
stand she forcefully denied the charge,
and said: "I have not sold anything of
that nature in a long time, as I have
long been sick."
Two witnesses testified to the de
fendant's grocery store having a bar in
it and all tho other appurtenances of
a saloon, and to their having visited
the premises and purchased beer.
Mrs. Becker also denied selling beer,
saying she only kept a little liquor on
the premises for her own use and that
of her family. When one of the same
witnesses who appeared against Mrs.
Haves testified, Mrs. Becker also took
several rapid-fire shots at the sleuth,
and lomnrked: "I never saw your face
In my house. If T did, I'd have re
Mayor Molr here Interposed that the
witness' appearance might have been
materially different when he visited
the Becker domicile, but the defendant
ignored the interruption, and went on
about as follows: "There Is a bar in
my house, but it was there before I
moved in." She burst into tears here,
and when Mayor Moir, who was con
siderably affected by the case, said:
"Well, I will leave you off as lightly as
I can. $10 and costs," she contlnueel
her lachrymal outburst, and then gaz
ing at the two witnesses, cried: "Oh,
It makes me nervous to see men doing
such work on poor persons." The fine
was later remitted.
Will Vogel, of 1402 Prospect avenue,
also denied his guilt, but two witnesses
testified to purchasing beer In his
place, the liquor being served by a.
blind man. Vogel seemed honest in his
protestations of innocence, but as it
was proven that the liquor was sold on
his premises, he was fined $2.1 and the
costs, and warned by the mavor to
ptevent his blind friend from conduct
ing the business.
Charles Beck, of S22 Meadow avenue,
admitted his guilt, and declared him
self unable to pay the fine,
Martin Reardon, of 709 Crown ave
nup, was represented by Attorney J. C.
Vaughan. It was testified that in the
front of his establishment there is a
grocery store, and In the rear a. grog
shop. One of the witnesses testUled to
seeing a delivery wagon of Casey &
Kelly's unloading a keg of beer at
Reardon's place, and to his having had
a glass of beer.
A fine of $50 was Imposed. Attorney
Vaughan declared that he would prob
ably certiorari tho proceedings.

sober second thought, it Is safe to

The minors hereabouts nre not
counting on tho strike being settled by
this offer. They look upon It as a
confession of weakness on the part of
tho operators and are thereby made
confident of being ahle to get more
thnn they originally expected. At nil
events, It Is safe to say that the
strike won't be settled till the United
Mine Workers decree that It should
be. "Back, back to the mines," must
come from John Mitchell.
Some of the operators expect that
the Luckawanna miners will be
content with the offer nnd return
to work In large numbers Thursday.
Every Indication Is that this expecta
tion' will bo as far from' fulfillment
us that which precede! tho Reading
company's offer of Monday. There Is
no denying that the Lackawanna men
would be quite well satisfied lo go to

have come to regard the United Mine
Workers, organization as a great bene
factor and will be loth to make a

The New York Conference.
Nothing was heard yesterday from
the grievance committee of the In
dividual operators, which went to New
York, to arrange, If possible, for better
carrying tolls. They will likely spend
today there In conference with the
powers-that-be and return tonight.
None of the officers of the United
Mine Workers, at yesterday's mass
meeting In Wllkes-Barre, gave any in
timation of what the union would lo
regarding the 10 per cent, offer, or even
that It would be officially considered.
The indications nre, however, that
the proffer will be considered, and that
Its consideration will take place today.
President T. D. Nichols and Secre
taiy John T. Dompsey, of District No.
1, were to return last night from
Wllkes-Barre and bring Organizer Dll
cher with them. This they failed to
do, and when an explanation of the
failure was asked from Organizers
Henry Collins and Nicholas Burke, who
camo upon theMast train, It was stated
that Messrs. Nichols and Dempsey had
been summoned to Hazleton and je
malned over night In Wilkes-Barre to
take the first train In the morning for
the seat of the Mine Workers' head
quarters. They would not say what
the meeting was for, and protested
against any statement appearing In the
newspapers to the effect that It was
to consider the offer contained In the
notices posted today.
Be that as It may, It Is a pretty safe
guess that the offer will, at lPast, be
