(Party of Huckleberry Pickers from
Honesdalo Undergo the Fright nud
Peril of a Lightning Storm Near j
the Clouds.
The Wayne independent of yesterday
contained the following story of the
terrifying experience of a party of
huckleberry pickers, who were caught
In a storm' cloud on the top of the
,Mousics, a few days ago:
, "A number of Honesdale people went
huckleberrylng on the Mooslc moun
tain about a mile from FarvleW, where
they had an experience up 'among the
clouds In on electrical storm that will
long be remembered by them.
"The party consisted of Mrs. John
Allenbanher and two sons, Albert and
Willie, Mrs. L. LaPolnt, Mrs. Fred
Herhst and Mrs. John Allenbachcr, ur.
About 12.30 o'clock a' terrific electrical
storm was seen to be approaching and
nn effort was made by the women to
get out of the woods Into the open. The
rain began to pour down, accompanied
with hailstones which were very large.
Mrs.- Allenbacher says: 'We had Just
'crossed a barbed wire fence Into a road,
where wo were nearly free from the
trees. All of the women except myself
werq kneeling on the ground protect
ing themselves an best they could from
the beating hailstones, which were fully
as large as walnuts. They fell fast and
thick, and hurt us considerably. I was
Handing between my boys, with my
dress wrapped about them to shelter
them from tho storm and pelting hall.
After several loud peals of thunder, a
ball of lightning, accompanied with a
tremendous clash, seemed to descend
In our midst. We were greatly fright
ened and thought we would all 'be
killed. I was tin own violently to the
ground near the fence and when I re
'covered. from the shock, one of my boys
was ten or more feet to the loft of me
.and the other boy was an cciual dis
tance away In an opposite direction. I
suon found that I had received an In
jury to my right wrist. A piece of flesh
was toin out, leaving a place large
.enough to admit the end of .my thumb.
I did not fee any sharp stones or sticks
'lying about upon which I might have
fallen. The wound did not bleed at ull
and there was no blood notlceahle until
'after we had walked tuo or throe miles.
.1 had wrapped a part of my apron over
the wound and at fho first houso we
l cached tho Injury was dressed. It bled
a very little after being tied up. A few
minutes after the loud clap of thunder,
which undoubtedly struck very near
us, Mrs. Allenbacher, seeing me lying
on the ground, thought she would help
mn If possible, but she also seemed
paralyzed and was uuablp to move.
She did not have any ufc of her feet,
and Mrs. Herbst, who was neaiest me,
could not speak. Several minutes
elapsed and wo had walked some dis
tance before she could utter a word.
My straw hat was torn In shreds by
the hall, as was also those worn by the
other membeis of tho party.
"The presumption la that Mrs. Allen
bacher's wound was caused bv the de
scending bolt of lightning. The whole
party was terribly shocked by the cur
rent of electricity that came In contact
with the earth near them and so thor
oughly frightened that their limbs be
came paralyzed and their tongues
speechless. They made all possible
haste olf the mountain."
A Refutation of 'Squire Williams'
Statements of Yesterday.
A communication appeared from
'Squire Williams, of No. 4, In the Lead
er of last evening, in which he was In
error according to those who are on the
other side.
Tho 'squire Is under the impression
, ths.t the charges on which the accused
strikers were arraigned before Alder
man Jones were tho same on which
warrants were sworn out before him on
Monday morning, and in his letter the
'squire makes suggestions that places
Constable Ncary, and possibly Alder
man Jones in a false position. The
fact is that the charges made before
Alderman Jones did not grow out of
the same case as the one which was
before 'Squire Williams. John Butler
whs attacked twice on Monday. After
the trouble In tho morning he had war
rants sworn out before 'Squire WII
'llams, which Constable Neary served.
The defendants, preferring not to walk
up to the 'squire's office on the moun
tain side, went before Justice of the
'Peace Holmes, In Simpson, as they had
,the right to do, waived a hearing and
entered ball. The Tribune man was
To take cold. It'a so common to neglect
i the cold. That is one reason why there

stubborn coughs, and so many more with

i j'Trrfj, ' t
present at the time, about 8 o'clock
Tuesday morning. Constable Ncary,
who has been suffering from a severe
cold for several days, wns not well
enough to go to 'Squire Williams' office,
which accounts for tho ball pieces not
being brought to him, which would
have disposed of tho cases before him.
This disposes of the cases before
Squire Williams.
Now as to the cases before Alderman
Jones: They were separate and apart
from the others, growing not out of the
morning attack on Butler, but the one
made on him In the evening. Somo
of the accused parties, however, were
the same, which might lend 'Squire
Williams to the erroneous belief ho has
that tho cases before Alderman Jones
wore the same that he was supposed to
try. Tho piosecutor, before Alderman
Jones, was tho Temple Coal and Iron
company.through Superintendent Frank
Hemelbrlght. It wns at his Instiga
tion, nccordlng to tho records, that the
charges were brought, and for the pur
pose of showing that the company pro
posed! to protect Its employes from
attack on the highway. Butler Is not
the prosecutor, though he wns In the
'Squire Williams' cases, which covered
tho morning attack on him.
From these facts, which were
vouched for to The Tribune last night,
It can bo seen that 'Squire Williams
has written under a misapprehension
of the situation.
As to the question of Jurisdiction,
'Squire Williams says: "If the county
courts would compel the magistrates
of the city and borough to use their
authority within the limits for which
they were elected and commissioned,
two-thirds of the petty enses by which
they are pestered with expense to the
taxpayers would never reach the
courts for when a justice of tho peace
refuses a writ the parties proceed to
the city where they know the mills
are always open for a grist, however
small." '
In Hhis respect the 'squire Is clearly
In error, for a city alderman has jur
isdiction over the entire county in both
civil and criminal cases.
What Brother Whitney Says of the
Carbondale Crowd and the Mega
phonesThe Press Club Other In
teresting Gossip.
This Is how the Susquehanna people
saw the Carbondale delegation that ac
companied the Crescents to that town
on Tuesdav.
Brother Whitney, in his usually
bright and spicy letter, spreads bou
quets, as follows:
"Messrs. O'Malley, Grant and Gelder,
wide-awake Carbondale newspaper
men, accompanied tho Crescents to
Susquehanna, on Tuesday afternoon,
and armed with megaphones advertised
the game on the streets; and upon tho
grounds did much to lend sunshine to
the carnage. They were the cynosure
of all eyes and ears!"
Later in the paragraph, thinking of
the snake stories that he had to write,
ho stretched things this wise: "After
the fourth Inning, in the ball game yes
terday, tho megaphones of the O'Mal-loy-Grant-Gelder
aggregation were as
quiet as the notes of a dying swan.
The trio had no heart for music, and
they just sat upon the bench and wrote
duck eggs lor the Crescents. It was
worse than the farewell meeting of a
cross-road brass band."
Pitcher O'Gara thinks differently, for
the megaphones with the "Oh, Tom
my!" almost put him out of business;
he was up In the air for awhile.
This Is Too Much, Birchard.
Not to be outdone In generosity. Edi
tor Birchard, of tho Susquehanna
Transcript, under the caption, "The
Carbondale Press Club," takes us off
our feet with the following:
"Martin T. O'Malley, Carbondale rep
resentative of the Scranton Tribune; J.
W. Grant, Carbondale representative of
the Scranton Republican, and J. Nor
man Gelder, city editor of the Carbon
dale Leader, accompanied 'Our Pets'
fiom tho 'Anthracite city.' They are a
handsome trio of capable newspaper
men and marriageable bachelors."
We might print an uncalled-for jab
that appeared In the Susquehanna
Journal, a paper that Is printed every
little while; the "occasional one," as It
were. But It's apparent that the man
who wrote It was suffering from In
somnia, and we're not going to Inflict
tho maudlin talk of anybody's night
mare on any of tho club's followers.
A Breeze from Port Jorvis.
This Is tho blast that shot from the
Port Jervls Union ubout the Lake Lo
dore came:
"Feeling keenly the defeat tho Hones
dale team administered them recently,
the Carbondale people sent over the
best nine to bo secured in that section,
accompanied by over 500 rooters, many
of whom wero armed with megaphones
to cheer their home players, or to rattle
our boys. They did not Intend to lose,
tho emergency being provided for by
tho presenco of a big bunch of news
paper men from Scranton and Carbon
dale, One thing should be borno In mind
by tho Carbondalo team its players
should not complain of unfnlrnes in
ball games after the example set by
them In n marked degree yesterday
afternoon. For the sako of" harmony,
our boys permitted several rank decis
ions of their umpire to go by unpro
tested, but when Carbondalo coachers
Jumped in front of our first baseman
several times, so that he could not
catch tho ball from home plate, they
put In a mild objection, but) without
avail. This, Carbondale called 'base
ball.' Howover, our boys took their de
feat like gentlemen."
Everybody who "was at" this game
will smllo us they read the above, and
they will bay, "It's too bad about the
man who wrote that," particularly
when they recall that It was Carbon
dale and Carbondale men, nlone, who
kept back Port Jervlsltes who weren't
able to keep back themselves.
Sour Grapes, Canalers!
Only a Ilonesdaler could show such
sour grapes as the following from the
Wayne Independent:
"J, Norman Gelder, reporter for the
Carbondale Leader, and Martin T,
O'Malley, of the Scranton Tribune, are
contesting for honors In y'e'llow Jour
nalism, with Honesdale as the target
for their shafts."

Carbondale has tho best team now
she ever had on the local diamond.
Manager Tapnan Is a gentleman and
desires fair play, Wayne Independent.
A Doublo-Headed Case Disposed of
by 'Squire Mendelssohn.
A. V. Matthews, of Jermyn, was held
in ball to answer at court, by 'Squire
Mendi'lssohn, on n, charge of larceny,
preferred by Michael Senyock, of the
Ramo borough,, Senyock'a story was
that Matthews swiped hie Sunday
Immediately afterwards, Senyock was
arrested on complaint of Matthews,
Matthews swore that Senvock waa in
dulging In sea breezes when ho said
tho tormcr got away with his trottborsj
In other words, he was some relation
to Ananias.
Besides the charge of porjury, Mat
thews accused Senyock of malicious
mischief, namely, breaking tho win
dows of the former's houso by pitch
ing Owney McAndrew curves; and
finally of larceny, the unlawful taking
of a pair of trousers. It seemed to be
n case of "hoss and hoss" In passim;
charges. "People In stone houses
shouldn't throw glosses," thought Mat
thews, as did the old German once upon
a time. Hence, his case against Sen
yock. Senyock was likewise put under
bonds to Htand his chances with the
next grand Jury.
A Eight Grows Out of a Jermyn
Ball Gamo.
Justice of the Peace Isaac Mendel
ssohn, of Mnyfleld, dwelt with the cli
max of a Jermyn base ball game that,
happily, Is never seen In Carbondale.
notwithstanding the exciting contests
we have here oftener than once In
awhile. 'Squire Mendelssohn officiated,
as It were, as umpire of the foul
Henry Brown was the victim of the
foul plays, asking Judgment against
William and Thomas Parry. He charged
the pair with knocking all the enthusi
asm out of him, after the ball game In
Jermyn on Monday, between Bam
Mendelssohn's team and the Brothers
club, They did more, he said, than
take his enthusiasm; they put him In
the "has been" rooter class and made
him feel like singing, "I'll Never Go
There Any More." In brief, the Farrys
gave him a good beating.
The 'squire believed there was suf
ficient evidence to send the case to
court, and it went.
