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.
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.
"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
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."
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.

Orphans' Court Saturday,
Foriner Postmaster w, L. 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

Mr, Yarrlngton was named as the

his proper support. Upon the death of

ing was directed' to be equally divided
between tho First Presbyterian and
Trinity Episcopal churches of Carbon
dale. Mr. Yntrlnglon desires to sell tho
property and devote the proceeds to
James Blair Hunt becattso of the hit
ter's statement that ho Is urgently lit
need of funds. Tho trustees nnd ves
trymen of tho two churches contest his
right and seek to have hhn removed,
Attorney J, E. Burr represented tho
two churches at the hearing while Mr.
Yurrlngtou's Interests were looked tit
ter by Attorney II. C. Butler.

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

discharge of their duties', take and sub
scribe to the ofllclnl oath, or afllrma
tion, as ptovlded In the act of assem
bly, approved June 29, 1&S1, relating to
primary elections.' 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."

were Mysteriously Poisoned.
Coroner J. J. Saltry said last night
that Chemist George R. Barber, who Is
analyzing the contents of the stomach
of one of the three Vargo children who
died suddenly In Olyphunt last week,
will have completed his labors today
and stated that an inquest will prob
ably be held In Olyphunt tonight.
The coroner said that traces of ar
senic had been found In the stomach
and believes himself that nil three chil
dren died of arsenic poisoning. He is
inclined to the belief that the children
weie not Intentionally poisoned but ad
mits that It is hard to form any other
theory as there Is no evidence to show
that they had access to any poison
