HE HAD A WILD TIME.
Fred Stevens Cleaned Out tho "Hub"

Morris and His Bnrtcnder.
Theodore Morris, firopiletor of the
"Hub," tho snloon on Spruce stteet for
which a license litis jiiht been refused,
was knocked down twite, Saturday af
ternoon, by Fred Stevens, a country
chap from Sterling, Wayne county, who
floated Into town to suend.hls month's
wages. Incidentally, Stevens knocked
out a plate glass window In the saloon,
and laid the bte, tall bartender low
with a blow from his fist.
Stevens went Into the saloon early In
the afternoon and spent some time In
the back rdom. He discovered, nfter he
had been drinking for an hour or more,
that his pay, amounting to $40, had
been taken fiom his clothes. He c:.me
out Into the barroom and began to
make things lively. He knocked over
chairs and tables, and wound uu by
throwing himself against one of the
windows, which went down with a

latter turned and knocked him down.
Jlorris got up ngaln and went at the
man from Vv'nyno county again and
was knocked sprawling a second time.
Then the bartender took a hand, but
as soon as he got within the ninge of
Stevens' arm, he, too, went down. By
this time Patrolmen Halt and Goeilllz
arrived on the scene and placed Stev

ON OLD THEME
DR. PIEROE SPOKE ON THE
Ho Pointed Out That Prodigal So
cloty, Prodigal Homes, Prodigal
Friends, Prodigal Business nnd
Some Prodigal Churches Are
Largoly Responsible for tho Mak
ing o Modern Day Prodigal Sons.
Said That He Never Marries Dl
Hev. Dr. Hobeit F. Y. Pierce, pastor
of the Penn Avenue Baptist church,
preached u sermon last night based on
tho ever fruitful parable of the prodigal
nr.v. ii. r. y. i'II'.uck, l). i).
son taking for his particular text, Luke,
15:13: "And there wasted his substance
with riotlous living."
In beginning his sermon Dr. Pierce
referred at length to the vast amount
of waste there Is In every department
of life, waste of food, waste of time,
waste In business and in countless oth
"But," said he, "the most terrible of
all is a wasted life, a life that is lost
utterly for good. This prodigal son
whom the parable speaks of wasting his
substance, wasted his opportunities and
wasted his fortune. Did you ever stop
to consider what he might have done
with his money and his intellect had
he not foolishly left his father's house?
"Prodigality always makes prodigals.
What amazes me as I look out upon life
is that men after the object lessons of
the evil results of badness, wickedness
nnd drunkenness which aie constantly
before them should go light into the
evil ways of sins with a remarkable
facility and ease.
SYMPATHIZE WITH HIM.
"We sympathize with the piodigal
and pity him hut we should sometimes
study the things that made him wli.it
he is. We should study the causes as
well as pity the effect. Why did tho
boy go away from his father's house?
How was It in the homo before he went
away? Theie are a number of things
that are productive of prodigals and
and one of them Is prodigal homes.
"What about tlic social environment
of the home? Would it not be wise to
look over tho family record before de
ciding upon what caused the prodigal's
downfall? We need to learn. the lesson
that tho physician teaches that we are
responsible In many instances for the
eharactois which our chililien inherit,
Perhaps the prodigal son was
never taught tho lesson which every
boy should be taught the lesson of true
and loving lespect for parental author
ity. "Perhaps he saw about him the re
sults of too loose ideas regarding the
maniage relation a thing that may be
seen in too many of our modern day
homes. We are having too much di
vorce. Every week I am forced to
turn away couples who seek to become,
united In marriage hy me because
either one has been divorced. I never
marry divorced people unless they can
bring 1110 certificates from court show
ing me that they were divorced for
Scriptural leasons. I have married
hut two divorced people in all my
carer as a minister and these two had
been niairied before and courted again
like a pair of young lovers after they
had been separated by the law. If
preachers would more boldly proclaim
the sacredness of the marriage relation
there would ho less divorce applications
und moio happy marriages.
SIAKE PRODIGAL SONS.
"Prodigal friends generally make
prodigal sons. God gives us friends to
strengthen our lives and to conduce to
our happiness and joy, but there aro
friends who are not God-given and
who Insidiously seek to lead us down
the way that leads to destruction. Be
ware of these and shun them as you
would tho beasts of tho forest.
"Prodigal business often makes
prodigal sons. In business customs of
tho present day, the young man sees
much that Is not honest. Ho sees that
competition is so keen oftentimes that
his employers surrender honor to pol
icy. Up find that shoddy is put Into
clothing, that food Is adulterated and
that fnlse measurements and other
trickery are used to swell the pockets
of tho merchant. The young man
studies these conditions and It Is not
strange that ho drifts out on tho broad
sea of life without the rudder of hon
esty to guide him on tho safe course,
"Prodigal society makes prodigal
sons, Society should uplift, encour
age nnd ennoble men, but too often
It debases and ruins them. Fashion
has stopped In with Its glitter nnd at
traction and men's thoughts aro led
away from what Is noble and good to
what Is worldly. Fashion Is constant
ly sweeping men from tho firm an
rhorugo that holds them fast to a bet
ter manhood Into the turbulent waters
nf worldly glitter and selfish ambition,
That society which does not
foster education and stimulate, to
noble ambitious is a prodlgul society,
"Sometimes I have thought thut
there Is n prodigal church und that It
is doing Its share In the production of
prodigal sons, Sometimes the church
forgets tho perishing ones ubout her
end holds herself within certain nar
row boundaries. Sometimes Christian
people can do nothing that their
fathers did not do and aro afraid of
stepping over the lines laid down In
years .gone by. Such people make of
thejr church a prodigal church, In
btead of muklnrj It the bride of the
"The prodigal may put part of the
blame on the home, part on his friends,
part on his business, part on society,
pare on the church, but the blame Is
not wholly theirs. He cannot n),t as
Taking n necessary
131 PENN AVENUE,
much blame on anybody or on any
thing as on himself, nnd he himself
must be roved first."

Alderman Ruddy Saturday, to answer
at court for extorting money from
Old Forgo saloon keepers.
Kofchlnski Is also held to answer for

Tho story of a raft of witnesses was
to the effect that tho two defendants
wont among the saloon-keepers of Old
Forge with warrants charging them
with selling liquor illegally and, nfter
placltif: them under arrest, settled the

Kofchlnski Is a former agent of the
Municipal league. He Is also one of
the three men Indicted for killing
Daniel McAullffe, on Luzerne street,
during n fracas growing out of an
nttempt to make arrests for stoning
trolley care and assaulting Seranton
Hallway company employes. Sharrak
was a special ofllcer of Old Forge until
last Monday, when the council took
his commission away from him be
cause of his alleged extortions from
Sharrak was represented at the
hearing hy Attorney M. J. Donahoe,
KofchlnskPs attorney is F. E. Beers,
of counsel for the Municipal league.
County Detective Phillips, who is
prosecuting the case, was represented
by County Solicitor H. L. Taylor.
SWOHE OUT WARRANTS.
February 20, It appears, Kofchlnski
presented himself at Alderman Rud
dy's office and swore out warrants
charging Illegal liquor selling against
George Hush, William Sussavlch and
Paul Prannock, of Old Forge. The
alderman said he would have tho war
rants perved forthwith, but Kofchln
ski told him It would be unnecessary,
as he had engaged an Old Forge offi
cer to serve them.
That was the last the alderman
heard of the warrants until one day
last week, when Hush appeared at the
alderman's office for a hearing. Tho
alderman knew nothing of the hear
ing nnd questioned Hush as to what
he was driving at. Hush went on to
tell that the county detective and
Special Officer Sharrak had arrested
him for selling liquor on Sunday, and
further that they'had tried to get him
to settle by paying money.
County Detective Phillips was in
formed, nnd he set about an investiga
tion. AVord had come to him that he
had been impersonated by "bleeders" in
various parts of the county, and he was
waiting for an opportunity to bring
some one of them up with a quick,
Saturday, when Kotchinskl and Shar
rak were arraigned to answer the
county detective's charges, they were
confronted by a dozen witnesses to coi
loborate the story of Hush.
All three of the saloonkeepers for
whom Kofchlnski had sworn out war
rants, together with members of their
fnmilies and others, swore to the false
impersonation and extortions.
Prannock said he settled for $4.."0.
Sussavlch testified that he nald $17.50.
Agnes Strulufsky, another saloonkeeper,
told that they threatened to an est her,
but she bought them off with S17.50.
Charles Sussavlch testified that they
bled him for $30.
SHARRAK MADE DENIAL.
Sharrak and Kofchlnski wero al
lowed to testify. Shurralc denied that
he told the victim that Kofchlnski was
the county detective, but ndmitted ho
accompanied him when he was serving
some warrants and that he was paid $2.
Kofchlnski declined to answer nnv
questions, after being sworn, basing his
refusal on the ground that his answeis
might tend to Incriminate himself.
Attorney Donahoe argued that as It
was not shown that Sharrak had Im
personated an oillcer or taken any
money from the saloonkeepers, he
ought to be discharged. In Kofchlnskl's
behalf, Attorney Beers argued that the
charge of extortion was Irregular, be
cause Kofchlnski had no authority as
an ofllcer outside tho city limits. The
proper charge, he argued, would bo
Alderman Ruddy did not agteo with
the attorneys for the defense In either
contention, and required the defendants
to glvo ball for court.
