Interesting Event Conducted by the
Sunday School of Elm
The annual Autumnnl service of the
Him Park Sunday school was held last
evening. The church Interior was
tastefully and appropriately decorated
with autumn leaves; songs of the har
vest time were tendered and a timely
sermon was delivered by the pastor,
Rev. C. M. Oinin. D. D.
He had for his text, "We All Do Fade
as a Leaf," from the sixth verse, slxty
fouith chapter of Isaiah.
In likening the growth of a soul to
the fruition of nature, he drew many
apt and effective comparisons.
"The autumn Is a teacher of re
sults," he said. "Wo may llouilsli with
leaves and think to hide our barren
ness, but God Is not deceived, When
he comes in the autumn time Ho will
look fur fruit, It Is for you to see lie
searches not In vain,

MARRIED IN SYRACUSE.
John Reynolds and Mrs. Gomer Price

Announcement lias Just been ni.ulo of
the wedding In Syracuse on Septem
ber I'.', of John Iteynolds, u member nf
the llrni of Iteynolds liros., stationers,
and Mrs. Gomer Price, of South Hyde

The ceremony was performed by llev.
Albert Coll, IL L, pastor of the Hap

slster-ln-Iaw, Mrs. O. I). Urcen, on
Rust Geneseo street. The meeting at

mid Mrs. Price gonlng from Scranton
to meet him.
The wedding was kept it secrot until
a few duys ago, when they announced

congratulations of their friends. They
will reside on South Main uvenue.
members who are known to have been
wavering 'and a very general return of
those who were induced to leave the
mines and re-join the union on the as
surance that the conference would bring
about a settlement. Tills fact will In
duce the strikers' pickets to redouble
their numbers and efforts to prevent
men from reaching tho mines.
The soldiers are anticipating this
extra activity on the part of the strik
ers and propose to be also out In in
creased numbeis to prevent the pickets
from carrying their "missionary"' work
to unlawful limits. There Is probabil
ity of a day of turbulence and possi
bility of some serious clashes.
The coal companies look upon the
failure of the white house conference
as the death-blow of the strikers' cause,
and will be greatly disappointed If the
present week does not see the begin
ning of a general break in the strikers'
ranks. From nearly all the comnanv
offices come reports of strikers waiting
on the superintendents and saying they,
and many others they know "of, Intend
to return to work, now that it is shown
that not even the president of tho
Tnlted States can btnlge the operators
f i om their position. They also report
that there is an undercurrent of feeling
adverse to the action of the union's offi
cers in so summarily Ignoring tlio
proposition of settlement made by the
operators at the conference. The com
panies declare that If a convention was
called and this proposition submitted
to a secret ballot the delegates would
vote to accept it by a large majority.
WHAT LEADERS SAY.
The mine workeis' leaders say tho
proposition is a mere sham, intended
solely to befuddle the public, and assei t
that resolutions will come poinding in
from tlio focals endorsing the action of
i-resmeiu .Miicneu in rerusing to con
sider the proposition.
Prayers were said at many of the city
churches yesterday morning and even
ing for the speedy termination of the
strike. The Idea was suggested during
the week and met with general an-
proval by tho city pastors.
Saturday night witnessed an attack
on sentries at the camp by stone throw
ers, an attempt to wreck an engine
carrying soldiers and the capture o'f
two men skulking about the camp, one
of tlieni armed with a shot gun.
It was close on to midnight when
the stone throwing took place. A sen
try at Post 10, near tho southeast cor
ner of the camp, was lilt by a stonu
which came out of tho darkness from
the direction of u mine cnve-ln, thirty
yards away. He noticed a llguro on
all-roura moving stealthily along a
fence near the cave-in and he called
"halt," Tho call was unheeded and tho
sentry llred. Tills brought a squad or
the giiuid to the scene and a search
was made for the piowior, but ho had

could be further Investigated.
SHOOTING AT A BIRD.
At daylight, yesterday morning, a
stiuud of Captain itaub's men from
Company L sighted a man with a shot
gun In the brush near tho (Irassy
Island colliery. As two of thu soldiers
approached lie llred a shot and the
charge went whistling by the head or
one of them. lie pretended lie did not
know the soldiers were approaching in
the direction in which he shot. He wus
shooting ut u bird, he said.

Tho prisoner watt titan detected lu the
act or taking from his pocket and

campaign Imttotis, which wore so gen

Tho prisoner when arraigned before
Colonel Watres was Identified as Guls
seppc Fepprlllo, a resident of Grassy
Island, who has been reported several
times as a general disturber nnd wor
thy of being watched. Prior to tht ar
rest, Colonel Watres had received In
formation that Popprlllo wns tho cus
todian of n largo quantity of nrnis and
ammunition that strikers of the Grassy
Island locality have been collecting. A
consignment of COO cartridges, It was
reported to tho colonel, was received
by Popprlllo a few days ago.
Early Inst night, Colonel Wntres sent
Major Itobllng, with Companies B and
L, to search Paprlllo's house, a,nd the
story was proven to bo true. Twelve
hundred rounds of cartridges used In
shotguns were unearthed. The fnet that
every man In that region seems to own
a shotgun makes this discovery signifi
cant. Pnprllio claimed ho bought tho
cartridges to sell to hunters. lie keeps

TRIED TO WRECK ENGINE.
The attempt to wreck an engine car
rying soldiers took place on th- nar
row guage road connecting Ulrdseye
with Olyphant. A squad of half-a-dozen
soldiers Is sent out each even
ing to patrol the Blrdseyo region. Sat
urday evening, tho engine was stoned
from nmbusli near Blrdseyo and just
around a curve from the point where
the stones wero thrown a pile of large
rocks and the trunk of a tree were
found on the track. Tho engineer, for
tunately, saw the obstructions Just In
time to avert an accident.
Some shots wero fired In the early
part of Saturday evening as a squad
of soldleis passed through the western
end of Olyphant near Throop. In the
darkness It was impossible to find any
one about who could possibly have
done the shooting. A resident of the
neighborhood told tho soldiers that the
shots were probably fired by a crowd
of small boys who have established a
miniature camp near that point, and
amuse themselves playing soldier.
They have toy guns and pistols, and,
it is said, use only blank cartridges.
Saturday afternoon, Captain Huff, in
command of Company II, at Stenick
Creek, telephoned to cump that a large
crowd of foreigners, some of them
armed, were gathered on the bank of
the river opposite to where his com
pany was stationed, and judging from
their actions he thought they might
be contemplating mischief. Colonel
Watres despatched a. detachment of
the Sheridan troop to the scene. The
crowd dispersed at the approach of
Liveryman Ross Edwards, of 1J23 Ca
pouse avenue, and Howard Dennis, of
1717 North Washington avenue, wcio

locality. The robbers got only eighty
MORE STONE THROWING.
Last night, again, there was stone
throwing at the sentries surrounding
the camp, and despite extra guards
secreted beyond the sentry lines, the
stone-throwers made their escape. Com
pany I, stationed at Sterrick Creek, wns
stoned from the woods just outside its
post and fired a number of shots in re
turn, without hitting anyone.
