In a recent issue we gaye some idea
of our townsman's (Homer Greene's)
interesting new book, "A Lincoln Con
script." In the Stroller's department
of the Scranton Tribune the appended
article appears, to which we may add,
that, with such change of names as
seemed advisable the scenes of Mr.
Greene's new story are located in this
county, and the characters are easily
recognizable people of Salem township,
and the vicinity of his boyhood home :
"I .have just received a copy of "A
Lincoln Conscript," a charming story
of the War of the Rebellion, from the
pen of the well known author, Homer
Greene of Honesdale. It deals with the
experiences of a southern sympathizer,
who wap drafted during the war and re
fused to respond to the nation's call.
Through the interference of President
Lincoln the stubborn individual is sav
ed from court martial and death, and
becomes one of the most enthusiastic
admirers of Lincoln and a falthtul sol
dier in the Union army. The principal
scenes are laid in Pennsylvania and tho
characters of war tlmo live in the pen
pictures given in tho author's fascinat
ing vein. The volume, which is pub
lished by tho Houghton Mifflin company,
of Boston, is profusely illustrated with
drawings by T. DeThulstrup, and sells
for $1.60. it is not only an appropriate
tribute to the memory of the great Lin
coln, but is, a correct story of war tlmo
conditions, and its historical features
and moral trend make "A Lincoln Con
script" one of the best books that could
be placed in the hands of tho young
reader. In theso days of vicious, im-
. I lit i II Ml I i , ' .
worm oesi genera, mat outrage' cte
cenoy and pervert the Mind of youth,
Mr. Greene's latest effort affords a re
freshing and uplifting diversion."

Application for Receiver
for Pa. Cent. Brewing Co.
HONESDALE BREWERY INTERESTED
Charges of Mismanagement and
Extravagance Not Sustained by
the Evidence Company
Will Probably Go on
as of Old.
Tho application for a receiver for
the Pennsylvania Central Brewing
company, which is pending in the
United States Court in Scranton, is
likely to be refused by Judge Arch
bald, and It Is expected that the
company, with which the A. Hart
ung brewery of this place Is con
nected, wlil go on as It has been do
ing. A bill in equity was filed three
weeks ago in 'United States court
against the company by J. Edward
Ackley, as plaintiff, charging gross
mismanagement by the officers and
alleging that the company Is in
The hearing on the bill was set
down for 10 o'clock Wednesday
forenoon and instead of calling wit
nesses, the evidence was in the
form of affidavits on both sides for
the purpose of confining tho issue
to the material facts, and dispos
ing of the case quickly.
It was averred in several affidav
its for the defendant that the suit
was Instigated by John G. Persch,
of New York, with the sole purpose
of forcing a combination of all the
brewery interests in Lackawanna,
Luzerne and Wayne counties, and
that" the plaintiff Ackley, is a New
York lawyer who has been Persch's
counsel for a good many years, and
who is but a nominal stockholder
of the company at present and only
so to give him a standing in court
which he otherwise would not have.
Judge Wheaton and George Lle
wellyn, of Wilkes-Barre, and Judge
Carpenter, of Scranton, appeared
for the plaintiff, and Judges Knapp
and Kelly and M. J. Martin, for the
Judge Archbald said at noon that
he would dispose of the matter
forthwith, If he could see his way
clear to do so, and from an incident
which cropped out during the hear
ing it was thought probable that
his decision would be in favor of
The judge Incidentally inquired if
any attempt had been made by the
plaintiff to have some of the mat
ters'' complained of adjusted with
out going to the extent of making
the move for a receiver.
To throw a company or any busi
ness into the hands of a receiver, it
is necessary to affirmatively show
that it is insolvent. While the
plaintiff makes allegations to this
effect in his bill by averring that
the sinking fund provision for the
fifty thousand dollars worth of bonds
due "this year has not been met,
the company shows that It got the
consent of a majority of the bond
holders; and that every bill, note,
claim and obligation of every sort
and kind from the first day the
company was organized to the pres
ent has been met and that now the
company has sixty-five thousand
dollars in .bank to its credit and to
tal assets readily convertible into
cash in the sum of four hundred
To put the matter into a nutshell
the company claims, by affidavit of
its treasurer that it has two dollars
to pay every dollar of claims or ob
ligations. The bill asking for the receiver
complains that a large and extrava
gant sum is paid to officers for
work done by subordinates, that
the company has run behind two
hundred thousand dollars in 1908,
that it failed to make the last sink
ing fund provision for fifty thous
and dollars of its bonds, and in ad
dition to the excessive salaries to
the officers large sums are expend
ed in expense accounts under the
guise of being on business trips to
The affiants In the affidavits for
the plaintiff are George G. Brown
and Thomas B. McMann".
As we go to press we learn that,
as was anticipated, Judge Archbald
denied the application for the ap
pointment of a receiver, saying in
concluding a long opinion that he
saw no grounds whatever for grant
ing the petition.
