THOMAS COLLEGE HALL. It Wab Arranged by Rev. F. S. Bal lentlne, Who Dollvored nn Ad dross on tho Doer War He Bnld That England Is Worse Oft Now In South Africa Than Sho Was In America. During1 tho Revolutionary War As He Forsoea the End of tho Trouble. Several hundred persons attended tho pro-Boer rally In St. Thomus college hall Inst night. It was arranged by Rev. V. S. Hnllentlnc, rector of Christ Episcopal church, und the principal feature of It wan a. talk by Mr. Ballen tlno on tho Boor war, tho talk being based, to a largo extent, on facts gleaned by the speaker during a visit to tho camps where the Boers aro exiled in tho Bermudas, It was late when the meeting opened, and Mr. Bal lontlne was compelled to make his ad dross much shorter than was his origi nal Intention. After the expenses arc paid, the re mainder of tho fund created by the ral ly will be sent to the Boors. Rev. P. J. McMantts, pastor of St. Paul's Catholic church, Green Rldgc, was tho chairman of the evening and announced that the programme would open with a song written by Rev. F. S. Ballentiue. Tho latter stated that his song was based on itudyaid Kipling's poem, "Tho Absent-Mlnded Beggur," which was set to music by G. Sullivan. That his version might bo the bettor understood, he read Kipling's poem, nnd then explained that some time ngo he received a pro-Boer song, a parody on the Kipling effort. It lacked rythnie and was not as strong as It might be nnd ho had rewritten 11. In a Hue, robust voice he sang his parody to the music arranged by Sullivan for Kip ling's poem. SPOKE OF WORK AVAli. At the conclusion of his pong, wlilih was heartily applauded, Mr. Tiallentlno gave his talk on the Boer war. He be gan by telling of his efforts to get the High School auditorium for the meet ing. Alter considerable effort, he was referred to Tiincipal W. C. .loslyn, of the High school. His talk with Prof. Joslyn showed hhn the professor was a pro-Britisher, he said, and he feared he would not get the auditorium, and. sure enough, he did not. It was sug gested that he arrange a joint debate with Hev. James Hughes, he to take the pro-Boer side, and Rev. Mr. Hughes, the pro-British. He tried to do this, but Rev. Mr. Hughes refused to participate In such a joint debate, and the matter had to be dropped. He was amazed, the other day, when he learned that Rev. Mr. Hughes on next Friday night Is to deliver a talk on South Africa in that self-same au ditorium. Rev. Mr. Hughes la a pro nounced pro-Britisher, the speaker said, and he cannot understand why he should be allowed, In a public school, to present the British side of tho con troversy, when the speaker would not be' allowed to give the Boer view of It. Ho is considering the advisability of going there next Friday and demand ins his right to iponk for the Boers. Mr. Ballentlne also read a long letter which he received from F. B. Bissell, of 1809 Linden street, which went over the cause of the Boer war from the British point of view, and urged the speaker to ) j fair in his statements and not content himself with giving the Boer arguments. HE 'PROVED TH1CM. "I never accepted a. statement from a Boer without proving it from British sources," said Mr. Ballentlne, "and what I propose to say about this trouble Is drawn almost enthely frcn British sources." He then read from a pamphlet, writ ten by an Englishman named Metlutne, the story of tho troubles that culmin ated in the present war. This state ment was true In the main, he Mild, but some of the conclusions drawn and Inferences thrown out were not just to the Boer. "The British have more to itintend with In South Africa than they had In America when the war of tlje revolu tion was being fought, and they will be worse off when the end comes than they were at the end of the revolution," was one of tho stiong statements the speaker made, "1 went to the Bermudas," ho con tinued, "with the Idea that tho South African war was over, but I changed my mind after I had talked with the Boer prisoners who are in exile there. The English do not understand the Boets, but bo Boeis undo stand the English from A tu Ism. "The Boer plan now is to avoid a pitched buttle, but to make the war so expensive for tho English government that the people will rise up and de mand that un end be put to the war." STATEMENT ETC-INIED. He denied the statements that come from British sources to the effect that tho Boers went north because they could not hold slaves where thev were after slavery had been abolished In South Africa by the British govern ment in 183.1. Tho Boers who went north to find a new home and escape tho tyranny of England, weie pilgrims as surely ns our forefathers who landed at Plymouth rook, and their subse quent conduct was much more worthy of commendation than that of the Ply. mouth colony, tho speaker suld. At the conclusion of Mr. Ballentlne j address, Miss Irene Kami, uccom punlcd by Miss Elizabeth Harrington, sang the national song of tho Boers. She was enthublustlcully applauded. The next feature of the evening was the singing of "Comrades hi Arms," by tho Junger Mnennerchor, of South Scrnnton, under the leadership of Prof, Theodore Schmidt. R was given In an exceptionally flue manner, and in re sponse to un encoro they snug "Hurde," u war song. This was given In Ger man. The concluding feature of the rally was In tho nature of a stereoptlcon display of views of the Bermudas and South Africa. YARRINGTON OASE.

Yarrlng ton, of Carbondale, was the defendant In a ense heard before Judge Vosburg of the orphans' court on Saturday in which his right to act as executor of tho will of Mrs. Jane Sweet Hunt, ulao of Carbondale, was contested.

Sho Is tho Soprano Soloist with the Paur Orchestra. MUs BlecJ.a Clifford, the soprano solo ist, who will sing tonight in the Paur concert, Is In the city, having arrived at tho Jermyn yeslcrdny. Her great success, both In Europe and on this side of tho water have not In the smnll- jiosi rj.m-v ciirroiti). est respect spoiled the simplicity of this beautiful girl, who is in her wuy the highest type of what an American girl can become through her own efforts. Mits Clifford's home is In Ohio, and her first triumphs were achieved In this country. Vfterwuul, she went abroad and studied two or thro years In Paris, with Marchesl and others, singing in grand opera, both there and in Holland. Her concert tour this season has been exceedingly successful. She has been the soloist at Carnegie hall with the Paur Smyphony orchestra, has also sung recently with the Boston Sym phony and the Now York Philhar monics, and is engaged for a number of the great musical festivals and the most exclusive singing societies. She has a voice of remarkably wide range, singing easily above high C, and will be heaid at her best tonight in the great aria from "Hamlet." Oddly enough, since this woild is but a little place, Miss Clifford has chanced to meet Charles Doersam, of this city, In New York, and has offered him the position of accompanist, having been delighted with his surpassing abilities In this direction. Miss Millar, who Is the mannger of tho Paur orches tra, and Mist Gifford, are so much in terested in tho carcer of our talented young townsman that they propose to exert considerable influence to his ad vantage.

Owing to the fact that none of the vigilance committees In the five dlstticts of the First ward, at the recent Republican primaries, were so sworn before taking S2G votes, and to the interference of controllers and residents of adjoining wards, using money and falsehoods to accomplish their own selfibh ends, at the request of many residents of the ward, I have taken out nomination papers to run on tho Independent ticket for the olllco of' school controller, and tnv course has been endorsed by tho Demoeiats."
