Dissensions In Choir of Trinity
Church Result In Prof. Doorsnm'a
Prof. Charles noersnm, of Hrrntilmi,
yesterday entered upon his now duties
is organist unci chorister of Trinity
lOplscopnt church, turn gave excellent
jutlsfaotlou to the congregations. Ills
appointment to the position wits on
lercd upnii suddenly and the change
R'lirt nut known to the Kcnernt public
until announced In Saturday mornlng'a
T. CSrlflln Smith and Mm N. L. Moon
have previously been chorister nnd n
tranlst. of Trinity, and their many
friends have been wondering why thoy
(ni.vo been displaced on Mich short
notice. A. prominent member of the
church yesterday afternoon pave the
reasons to a Tribune man.
Trouble lias been brewing In the
.-holr for some time. Mr. Smith baa
been accused of partiality In assigning
solo parts to the female singers and
with being arbitrary. A number of
times. It Ik said, he has assigned solo
parte, to some one singer and when the
singer has thoroughly learned the part
ho lias taken it away ami given It to
mother, thus causing hard feelings. A
diorl time ago. It Is said, sixteen of the
l.idy members of the choir went to Rev.
i:. A. Sawyer, the rector, nnd told hlin
that unless Mr. Smith was removed an
horlster they would refuse to sing any
longer. The rector tried hard to dls
Miade them from their purpose, but ti
no avail. Then, It is alleged, ho told
them that he would remove Mr. Smith,
but If lie went, Mrs. Moon, the organ
Isl, would have to go also. This did
not. suit the ladles, as Mrs. Moon Is
very popular with them and has ever
since Iter connection with the choir
worked very hard, giving up much of
her time to aciiulrlng familiarity with
the large organ which has been in
stalled lately. It Is thought the rec
tor's purpose in threatening to remove
Mrs. Moon was simply to prevent the
choir from acting rashly, as there was
not the slightest complaint against her,
and It was thought thai she was to be
used as a band to cement friendly feel
ings In the choir, Be this as it may,
the sixteen ladies were insistent on Mr.
Smith being forced to tender his resig
nation. None of the male singers in
the choir tool; part in the demand for
his removal.
True to ills promii-e, on seeing that,
the ladles meant what they said In re
gard to their not singing unless Mr.
Smith resigned, the rector asked for
the resignation of .Mrs. Moon also. The
two i catenations were received and the
rector engaged Mr. Dnersam, who is a.
capable organist. U will be remem
bered that Mr. Doersam gave a recital
in Trinity church in February. Eight
of the young. ladles in the choir have
come back, but was said yesterday by
the reporter's Informant that eight am
still obdurate because they feci that
in injustice has been done to Mrs.
Moon. ,
Mrs. Moon, as organist, received $100
a year for her services; Mr. Smith, as
chorister, received $100 a year, making
a total or $-'00. Mr. Doersam has been
engaged at a salary ol' $2," a month and
expenses. These expenses will consist
of three trips a week from Scranton to
I'nrbondale, with Incidentals, making
.in outlay of at least $400 a year, in
cluding both salary and expenses, thus
doubling the amount that has beer,
pair! in the past.
It is to be regretted that a dissen
sion of this nature has arisen, as just
now Trinity church has a great, work
on band and needs the assistance of
every member of Its large pariah to
;arry It to a successful completion.
Not Expected to Live.
Word was received from Harford on
Saturday that little Gerald Hammond,
?on of W. R Hammond, nnd nephew
if Mrs. W. J. Lnwry. of this city, is
-teadily growing weaker and all hops

They Attended the Bcrenn Baptist
Church Last Night The Sermon
The various orders of Odd bYllows
of this city and vicinity commemorated
the seventy-eighth nnnlversury of the
Institution of the society by attending
divine services last evening at the
Bcrenn Baptist church. Among the
lodges which attended Carbondalo can
ton, No. 10, Patrlnrchs' Mllilnnl, at
tracted attention by their handsome
Itev. H. J. Whalen, J. I)., delivered
the sermon. The same minister
preached the annual sermon last year.
Last evening Dr. Whalen based his
remarks on two passages of scripture,
first taking for the foundation of the
address "The Great Commission," as
recorded In Matthew xxvlli: 16-20,
and the parable of the Hood Samari
tan, recorded in Luke x: 2.1-;!7,
In his address ho defined the rela
tive places of tho church and tho
lodge in the redemption of humanity,
and said that to tho church, first, has
been specially committed the special
work and care of organized charity In
cidental to the spiritual work. The
lodge ns a natural outgrowth of our
Christian civilization Is the hand
maiden nf the church, carrying for
ward that work taught In the parable
of the flood Samaritan. The church
and the lodge are not rivals, but both
are engaged in the work of bettering
humanity, the one being necessary to
the other. The lodge exists only un
der the eaves of the church. The
church prospers host where she has
the co-operation or the lodge.
The doctor said Hint, while the
church does do a good deal of charit
able work, its mission is purely spirit
ual and that the organization of lodges
Is necessary to finish the charitable
purposes mat the church is unable to
attend to.
The Comedy Coming to the Grand on
Wednesday Evening Next.
The attraction at the Grand Opera
House on Wednesday evening next
will be Sol Smith Uussoll's great com
edy.' "A Poor Helalion," in which that
rising young comedian. Frank Kaenan,
will assume Mr. Russell's part of Noah
.Vale. Mr. Keenan Is an actor or the
same quiet, natural methods ns Jius
sell, whom "ne resembles.
To bo poor and yet happy: to bo pov
erty stricken and yet charitable: to bo
out at the knees ami yet a. gentleman,
these are some of tile unique attributes
that arc combined in the sweet and
unworldly character of Noah Vale in
"A Poor Relation."
Many Lodgers.
The city jail Is tilled to its capacity
each evening with vagrants who come
to seek a night's lodging. This state
of things Is bad for tho community.
Tho tramps spend the day in bulling
about tho streets. Importuning house
wives for food and annoying them, and
at night return to jail and sleep there,
giving the janitor a great deal of extra
work. When they leave the city they
undoubtedly pass the lip along to their
brother hoboes that Carbondalo is an
"easy mark" and the "Weary Willies"
Hock here. This state of affairs should
be stopped. It is unjust to the citi
zens, jf tho laws regarding vagrancy
were strictly enforced the human
pests would be forced to quit coming

The Base Ball Outlook.
Jt begins to look as though tiie base
ball question was settled In this city
in Hie negative, at least for this sea
son. Unless more interest is speedily
shown tlie project to have a semi
professional team here will go by the
board. A number of young men have
been earnestly working to have a good
team here and for a while It seemed
as if their efforts would bo crowned
witli success, as subscriptions to the
amount or $125 were procured. A meet
ing of the subscribers was called for
Friday night and such a meagre num
ber attended the meeting that the pro
moters have grown discouraged and
have about decided to abandon ths
It is to be hoped that f-onie one will
lake it upon himself to bring to a
satisfactory s-hape tlie work that has
been laid down by Hie original com
mittee. This city is large enough and
"sporty" enough to have a representa
tive team that will put up :i good game
with any semi-professional team that
comes here. It woidd scarcely be nec
essary to go outside to get players. A
manager up to all the tricks of the
"fans" could also be found right in this
A Successful Mission.

the drhiiig rain and high winds no'

lias been eminently successful. The
mothers and wives bad excellent ad

The men's mission began yesterday
nit ruing at the 10.30 mass, although nt
this servit.e the congregation was
mixtd, In the evening at 7 o'clock a
service lor men only Mas held, and
throughout this week there will bo ser
vices a i .".n o'clock each evening for

seen if the men of the church will be
as faithful to their rcllglcus duties as
the won en have been.
