A PECULIAR
PROSECUTION
DIRECTED AGAINST MR. AND
MRS. HAROWITZ.
They Were Charged Before Magis
trate John T. Howe with Washing
Clothes on Sunday Tho Prosecu
trix Was a Neighbor, Miss Belinda
Welsh tJJJio Accused Could Not
Understand Why They Should Not
Bo Allowed to Wash Clothes Since
They Do Not Observe Sunday.
A peculiar prosecution wtis hi ought
before Magistrate John T. Howe yes
terday under tho old act passed In 1704
which prohibits manual labor In this
state on Sunday.
Mr, and Mrs. Henry Hurowllz, o
South Scranton, wero arrested nt the
Instance of MIfs Belinda Welsh, of
Itlver street, whose property adjoins
theirs, on the charge of washing clothes
on tho Lord's day and hanging them
out to dry, In open defiance of the
laws of the commonwealth.
The Hurowltzs', who do not speak
English very well, could not under
stand their nrrest nt all when ar
raigned before Magistrate Howe last
night. They did not observe Sunday,
they said, and why could they not do
the same things in their own home on
that day as on any other day? If
they, were not permitted to wash a
few clothes why should the drug stores
be allowed to be open, they said, and
the street cars running.
No one seemed to want to prosecute
the druggists or the railroad compan
ies, they were told, but they seemed
to be convinced that they were being
dealt unjustly with. The magistrate
let them go upon payment of the costs
and a promise not to wash clothes
again on Sunday.

cils about a month and a half ago.
IS STUDYING MACHINERY.
Judge Archbald Must Have Knowl
edge of Mechanics as Well as Law.
Federal judges very often have to
have a more than superficial knowl
edge of applied mechanics as well as a
knowledge of the law. This is required
in dealing with patent cases and any
person who doubts this would have all
his doubts removed if ho could get a
glimpse of Judge K. W. Archibald's
oIIIco this week.
The judge has before him a patent
case in which it is alleged that a cer
tain machine for lacing1 leather belts
Is an infringement upon another ma
chine for a similar purpose. A half
dozen ponderous steel machines now
line one side of the office and the walls
and desks are decorated with myster
ious locking mechanical designs.
OUTPUT ABOUT NORMAL.
Miners Back at Work After Christ
mas Holidays.
Reports from tho offices of the coal
operators, yesterday, showed that the
mines were once more working with
practically a full force. The figure on
output were not In hand when the of
fices closed for the day but the Informa
tion gleaned by telephonic communica
tion with tho superintendents at the
different collieries indicated that the
output was about normal.
Now Year's day and the day follow
ing will cauFo another decrease in tho
output, but It will not be as large as
that resulting from Christmas day.

It has always been the policy of SI.
Luke's church to observe Christmas
U3 n purely religious festival and to
carry this observance Into the Sunday
school exercises hold every year. For
this reason there was no Santa Chuis
nt the festival given tho chlldien hist
night.
The children of the Sttndny school
nnd a number of their ciders, gathered
In tho church at 7.30 o'clock and par
ticipated In a brief service, conducted
by Rev. Dr. Rogers Israel, the rector
and ltov. Robert Hoe, tho curate. The
vested choir rendered a number of
beautiful Christmas carols, Including
that pver-benutlful one "God Rest Ye,
Merry Gentlemen, Let Nothing You
Dismay."
After the service, the children Hied
Intd the auditorium of tho parish house
where a number of pictures of Christ's
nativity wero thrown on a screen nnd
explained by Dr. Israel. Then the cur
tains hiding tho stage were drawn back
and a large nnd beautifully decorated
Christmas tree was revealed. A gen

Grievance Committee Is to Be Given
Power to Act.
It was decided yesterday to hold a
special meeting of the Master Horse
shoers' association to-night for the pur
pose of giving the committee appointed
to treat with tho grievance committee
of the journeymen's union, full power
to act.
When this is done another conference
between the two committees will be
held and on effort will be made to
amicably setttle tho grievances, though
from present indications it is extremely
unlikely that this will be done unless
the journeymen agree to a reduction of
the wages, which they demand. The
master horseshoera are practically a
unit In declaring that they cannot pos
sibly afford to pay the rate of wages
demanded by the men without Increas
ing the price of horseshoing to horse
owners very materially, something they
do not desire to do.
