Big Kir at Deposit, X. Y.
On Saturday morning, Oct. 15th
occurred the greatest conflagration
that Deposit, N. Y., has had in years
when the plant of the A. S. Wick
wire Press was entirely consumed
Fire was discovered in the part
adjoining the boiler room by the
watchman at 3.45 a. in. and spread
rapidly. Everything was In good
order when ho made his three
o'clock round and the cause of the
fire is not known.
By tho time tho firemen arrived
the building was a seething mass of
flames the paper, ink and gasoline
helped to spread the lire very rapidly.
The firemen bent their efforts to
saving tho end occupied by the of
fico and succeeded in keeping the
flames from thore until the books
Practically everything Is a total
loss, and the large presses, binders,
etc., today are nothing hut Junk.
Somo plates which wero kept in a
concrete house separated from tho
main building, are all that are left
of tho lino equipment.
Tho Iosb is variously estimated at
from $25,000 to $50,000 and the In
surance from $8,000 to $22,000, but
tho latter figure Is deemed correct.
The plant gave employment to
about 35 people and had a large
number i)f orders on its books and
tho loss is a severe ono for the place.
Tho building was of wood, 200x50,
and two stories In height, and was

badly shaken up.
Herbeck-Deiner Coinpoiiy Demand
Another echo of tho glass cutters'
strike was heard today when the of
ficers of the Herbeck-Demer Glass
company notified tho borough offi
cials that the men employed by them
must have protection from the bor

While the majority of the glass
companies came to an agreement wltn
their striking employes some ume

Tho striking agents of the Met
ropolitan Insurance company of the
Scranton and Wllkes-Barre unions
having being refused any conces
sions by the company have organiz
ed a new Union Insurance company,
with headquarters In Wilkes-Barre.
The officers of the company, It is
said, refused to recognize any of the
committees from the union claiming
that when they went out on strike
they were no longer employes of the
company and could not be recogniz
ed as such.
The leaders in the strike move
ment are men who have been en
gaged in the Insurance business for
a number of years and have become
familiar with the details, to the ex
tent that they feel sanguine that the
new project will be a big success
Scranton and Wllkes-Barre capital
ists, it Is said have become identi
fied with tho new company which
starts out with a capital of $50,000.
According to a statement made by
ono of the local Insurance writers
today, all of the men who are on
strike at the present time will be
stockholders and that no agent will
be employed by the company unless
he holds a union card. Each of the
striking agents must purchase at
least three shares of stock and are
allowed to purchase as many more
as they wish.
The business of the company will
bo managed and financed by men of
many years' experience in. the Insur
ance business and the agents are
very enthusiastic over the new plan.
The local insurance writer further
stated that tho striking agents ex
pect to make a canvass of. their
debits with tho proposition of tho
new company and , they expect to
take away a large share of the In
dustrial business which is now held
by tho Metropolitan company. The
organization of the now company
came about as a result of the re
port brought back recently by the
committee, from the head officials
of tho company in New York city
which was favorable for a settle
ment. Tho places of the striking
agents In all towns between Forest
City and Nanticoke are being filled
by imports who, It is said, are ex
periencing no little difficulty in tak

members of the church that the
spirit of their beloved pastor, tho
Rev. Father Dassol, had winged Its
way to the shores of tho eternal
world. Bowed at the church altar
and in homes of many of his ,
parishioners were those who
had agreed to a vlrgll of con

his life to them for a longer time,
and as tho bell tolled out Its sorrow

wisdom had decreed that it was for
the best, that pastor and people

Father William Dassel was born
Nov. C, 1849, at Detimond, Germany.
His religious studies were under the
tutorship of Dr. Augustine Goekel,
afterwards Bishop of Paderborn, and
at the University of Paderborn. Af
ter studying theology three years at
the university, he spent one year in
st. Mary's College at Baltimore,
and was raised to the priest
hood at Scranton Cathedral No
vember 4, 1873, by Bishop O'Hara.
After serving as assistant at St.
Nicholas church for nearly five years,
ho came to Honesdale in August,
1878, and took charge of St. Mary

Father Dassel's health had been
poorly for some time back and ob
taining leave of absence he went to
Mt. Clemons, Michigan, to tRke ad-
vantage of the baths of that place,
thinking he had rheumatism, but
a few weeks of this treatment failed
to help but rather aggravated his
trouble and weakened him to such
an extent that he journeyed home

with his parishioners when the death
angel should come.
Father Dassel, by his gentleness,
his kindness, and Christlike conduct
to all whom he came In contact with,
won for him the universal respect
and esteem of all who knew him;

dealings with all mankind, his mem
