St. Elmo Matslmll, n Detective of
the Barring Agency, Who Proved
His Undoing Macaulay nnd

At a hearing before Alderman Myion
Knssmi yesterday afternoon, tho details
of (i wonderfully well tliuuuht-otit

who were arrested last week tit the In
stance of the nlllcer or the Intoriin
tloiml Text Hook company. The latter
was represented by Attorneys KCen-H
Warren and Joseph O'Urluti, of this
city, and John T. l.citiihnn, of Wilkes
Outre. Mnciiulny was defotuled by
Attorney John K. Scrugg and Klines
by Attorney W. W. Jtaylor.
Macaulay was nrresled last Wed
nesday morning ut lliirrlsbiirg and was
brought to this elty, Klines was arrested
here. The latter was paroled In the
custody of lils attorney until yesterday
and Aliienulny was released In the
custody of Detective .Mulhnll, of
Wilkes-Hnrre, to enable lilni lo bo
present last Saturday at lliirrlsburg,
where 'ho had some litigation to look
ufl--r. growing out of his tittonipt to
Set charters In this suite for the i 'ci
llery Knglneer company of Scrnnton,
I'a and the International Correspond
ence schools of Serunton. I'n., by both
of which titles the International Text
T'ook company was Known legally lie
fore (hey were chartered as the Text
Hook company, and by which names
the departments of the company's busi
ness arc still known all over the coun
try In a business way.
The principal witness yesterday was
St. Klmo Aim-shall, of YYIlkcs-Darre. tt
detective connected with the Harrlnsr
agency, of that city. In Xovcmber, lie
was put to work on the conspiracy
case, and went to Chicago, wheie lie
secured mi Introduction to Maeuuhiy.
He pretended to have some money he
wanted to invest, and Maeaukiy
agreed to let lilm In on a scheme he
had under way. JIacaulay explained
that he had .bcu employed by the
American Correspondence school and
had advised a number of the students
of tho International schools of this city
not to pay for the books they had re
ceived, or for their scholarships, as
they dhl not have to, and his
school would complete the course for
them with the books on hand for a
much less figure than the International
company could. The International peo
ple brought suit nmilnst some of these,
Alaeaulay said, and he defended them
and upon examining the charters or
the Colliery Engineer and International
companies, he alleges he found cer
tain defects In them cnil thereupon pro
ceeded to obtain charter.-; for himrell'
in Illinois for the Colliery Engineer
company or Scranum, Pa., and the In
ternational Correspondence Schools of
Alarslmll agreed to take twenty shares
In each of these companies, and Mue
aulay explained that they had the In
ternational Text Book company, of this
elty. in a bad place nnd it would bo
compelled to settle, lie said that nt
first lie thought S23,noo would be a
good price, but later, after viewing the
great possibilities of his scheme, de
cided that $."0.ono would be the price
the International pcoplf would have to
pay to get him out of tho Held.
At the same time he was endeavor
ing lo get charters for the two com
panies at lliirrlsliurg, and Marshall
went with him to that citv, where
Klines came Into the scheme, as one of
Afacuulay's attorneys In the litigation
whhh ensued by reason of the Text
I look company lighting the charter ap

NO EXCUSE ACCEPTED.
Teacheis Must Attend the Monthly
Institute or Suffer the Loss
of a Day's Pay.
Xo excuse will be accepted by the
board of control for non-altcndauce at
Ihe monthly Institute of teacheis. Such
was the pronouncement of the board
at' last night's meeting,
Last night. Superintendent Howell,
as per orders of the board, reported
Ihe proceedings of the last monthly In
stitute, held Saturday, and the names
of the teachers nut In attendance.
.There were eight of these latter, and
among tliem a teacher wlioe rather
died the day of the Institute-.
, Mr. Hoche wanted to have her name
omitted from the list to be docked.
This brought forth protests from the
teachers' committee against establish
ing bad precedents, and upsetting
rules. It was told that one of the oth
er seven absentees was In the hospltnl;
another broke her arm on the way to
the institute; another was sick, and
had been for weeks. If excuses were
accepted. Hi'- hoard would have no end
of trouble, It was claimed. The only
way to do was to pay a bonus of one
day's pay to such teachers as attend
the Institute, and make no exceptions
for any reason la the case of absentees.
The board agreed lo this by 11 vote of
11 to n.
A communication was received from
District .Solicitor David J. Tteedy,

questions propounded to him regarding

It was no longer used for charitable
purposes. On motion of Mr. Shires the

was appointed to in-oporute with tho
bin eau of health and the Lackawanna
County Medical society In attending to
the matter of vaccinations.
