Ppencer on Wednesday last on informa tion furnished by Jasper Burdick, watch man for the Wayne Hunting and Fish ing Club, charging that he was a tres passer on the lands of that corporation. He was given a hearing before Justice Robert A. Smith, in Honesdale, and fined two dollars and costs ; the defend ant admitted that he had fished in a stream leased to the prosecuting com pany. His claim that he was not on the lands of the company, but in a public highway, while doing his fishing, failed to save him from the penalty of the law. Marriage licenses have been grant ed to Leslie A. Brader and Katherine M. Heinickle, both of Honesdale ; Geo. Seely and Lillian L. Hazen, both of Dunmore ; Sidney M. Woodley and Emma Wegst, of Beach Lake. The Seelyville Pinochle club will play the Knights of Columbus a series of games Thursday evening. 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." On Thursday cvenlnsr. April 29, at the Lyric Theatre, under the aus pices of the .Amity Social Club, Bar bara Frietchie, , tho Frederick Girl, a very beautiful southern play in four acts will be presente'd by an exceptionally capable cast of local talent. Tho drama is being re hearsed under the direction of Mrs. Eleanor Kimble Dlttrlch, who is programmed to play the title role "Baftara Frietchie," and BenJ. H. Dlttrlch, Manager of the Lyric, is staging the production. Besides the1 'large cast of nineteen, many 6tUer"Teople will be used as citi zens,' soldiers, etc., making the com pany number about fifty. This will be the first play, by local talent, to take place in the Lyric ' Theatre, and, as the Amity boys have always given our people the best of amuse ments, even under the most dis couraging and disadvantageous con ditions, in the past; we naturally, now look for them to surpass any thing that they ever heretofore pre sented to the public Seat sale starts at the box office at 9 a. m.

The Carbondale Leader of Monday last, among its "One Min ute Interviews," has the following which seems to cloud the claim of priority of Mr. Kenworthy as a Honesdale-Carbondale stage driver: "In the Leader of April 16th I noticed an article stating that Wm. Kenworthy, of Honesdale, was the only surviving driver of tho Hones dale stage. From a reliable source I am informed that Mr. Kenworthy commenced driving the stage on this route in 1875, succeeding Mr. Townsend. Issacher Heacock, at present a resident of Carbondale. commenced driving on this same line Nov. 12, 1857. This would make him 18 years older in that line of business, than Mr. Ken worthy." Mr. Heacock's son is now the office clerk of the Allen House. Under . the Auspices . of the W. C. T.

The bride was attired in a beautiful white lace robe, and carried a bouquet of lilies of the valley and orchids.

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 solvent. 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 defendant. 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 company. 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 thousand dollars. 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 other cities. 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.
