The News of
A THIEF STEAXS CHALICE AND
The Bold Mid Sncriltgious Theft
Committed Just Before the Com
munion Service In the Episcopal
Church Yesterday Morning", About
8 O'clock A Traveling- Snlosnmn
of the Hobo Type Nnmed Logan,
Supposedly from Elmlra, Arrested
on Suspicion by Constable Nenry.
Was Seen in the Church Just Bo
fore the Theft Chalice Not Recov
ered. The chapel oC Trinity Hplncuiull
church wus desecrated yesterday just
before the communion service In the
moriiliiK. The bold and Haurlleijlous
thief stole a silver chalice and paten,
to which there was a Rreolcr value at
tached, aside from Its Intrinsic worth,
clnco It was the Rift-of a former be
loved member of the congregation, Mrs.
John Law. of Xew York city.
The theft and desecration, which are,
without parallel In this city, were UN
covered shortly after their perpetration.
Within a few hour Constable Nenry
arrested a traveling salesman of trin
kets, quite hobo like In his dress and
his conduct. Ills name is Thomas Loguu
and said he was from Ijlmiru, N. Y.
hater ho gave ills residence as Jersey
City, lie was s-eeu in the church by the
sexton, Frank Musters, In whom he
spoke, just before S o'clock. After he
was Kone, the chalice and paten were
missing. About 1 o'clock In the after
noon, Constable Neury arrested Logan
In the city station or the Delaware and
Hudson, lie was almost stupidly in
toxicated and was too drowsy and be
fuddled during the rest of the day and
evening to give an account of himself.
The unfortunate circumstance of the
despoiling of the sacred edllice is the
failure to recover-or locate tlie-eliiiliee.
A diligent search was made Tiy Coli
slable Nenry, but It was fruitless. The
belief is that Logan, if he Is guilty as
circumstances point, probably realizing
that he could not dispose of the stolon
sacred properly threw the chalice and
the paten away or bid them during his
wanderings after leaving the church.
Perhaps today w'hen his mind Is clear,
something of value will be gotten from
Shortly before S o'clock yesterday
morning while lio was in the cellar at
tending to the furnace Sexton Krank
Masters heard some one walking over
the floor of the church, lie supposed It
was the llrst of the communicants who
were about to assemble for the (com
munion service, but when he came up
stairs and observed the person who
had oome In, he was somewhat sur
prised at seeing n stranger. This caus
ed Mr. Masters to observe the man very
closely, and was thus able to positive
ly identify him later, after his arrest.
The stranger, who was not kneeling in
the chapel, but close to It, in the church
proper, asked what time services would
begin. Mr. Masters informed him and
then went out on an errand. When he
returned the visitor was gone. The
sexton went up to the altar, as was his
custom, to see to it that everything was
In readiness, and for the llrst time miss
ed the chalice and paten, which were
there a short time before, placed there,
as customary, the preceding? night by
the rector, Hev. It. A. Sawyer.
The sexton was disturbed and his
suspicion and fear were confirmed on
his Uncling on the altar the linen that
covered the chalice, cast aside by the
one who desecrated the lfibernacle.
1'ev. Mr. Sawyer was informed and
Constable Neary was sent for. The de
scription given the oiilcer by Sexton
Masters of the stranger whom he saw
in the church tallied exactly with that
of a man whom the constable observed
on the streets Saturday night ami re
garded as a suspicious character. The
chap was about town trying to sell
needles. He was shabbily dressed and
conducted himself in a way thai arous
ed the constable's suspicions. Late
Saturday night Constable Neary posted
Patrolman MeAndrew about the strang
er. Logan was a lodger at the city
jail and must have went directly from
there to Trinity church yesterday morn
ing. Constable Neary, supposing) Logan
went north, took the 9,10 Ontario and
Western train to Forest City and spent
a couple of hours there but without any
results, lie returned to Carbondale
about noon, making Inquiries along the
way. He decided to go to Scrauttm on
the l.lii Delaware and Hudson train to
notify the police there, who would send
out word of the theft. ISefore boarding
the train the constable searched the de
pot, as a precaution and was ugrecably
.surprised to mm ins man. no was so
intoxicated that he could give no bet
ter than maudlin replies to the officer's
After Logan was arrested he was pos
itively identliled by Sexton Masters as

her mental attitude is wrong and her eyes are wrong.
This is the time of year when material things give way
