Honesdale, conducted the defense in
the case of P. J. McDonnell against
his wife, Teresa McDonnell, for di
vorce, appeared in court Thursday
afternoon, and made a preliminary
motion for a new trial of the case,
on the grounds that some of the
jurors who had tried the case had
been improperly approached during
the trial of the' case. Mr. Brennan
was permitted to examine several of
Otis Highhouse, one of the jurors
was called to the stand and said that
he had boarded with his sister dur
ing his stay In Honesdale but that
on Tuesday he had stopped at tho
Commercial Hotel. He denied that
McDonnell had Invited him to have
dinner or that the meal had been
paid for by McDonnell. He said that
the case had not been discussed but
said that McDonnell had been stop
Ernest Ludwig, or riawley, was
next called. He said that Mr. Bas
chon and Mr. Deltzer had come up on
tho train and they walked over to
town together. McDonnell was with
them. They asked me to go in and
have a drink but I told them that I
could not do it because someone
would think because I was a juror
in the case that I was being in
lluenced. George W. Wegst was then called.
He had also been a juror in the
divorce case. He said that ho knew
McDonnell by sight and knew that
he boarded at the Commercial.
Wegst said that he had occupied
room No. 25 while there. He denied
that McDonnell had called at the
room to see him. "Tuesday even
ing," he said, "McDonnell did not
give us anything to drink. I took
a cigar and went out. He asked us
to have a drink but we walked out.
Ho treated after the case was over,
Earl Crooker, of Damascus, was
called. He said that he was a mem
ber of the jury and stopped at the
Commercial Hotel. He occupied the
same room with Mr. Wegst. He said
that McDonnell had not talked to
them about the case pending. He
denied that ho had taken a drink
or a cigar on Tuesday evening. He
said that McDonnell had offered to
give him something that evening but
that he had refused and walked out
of the bar-room. Ho said that he
had not been Introduced to McDon

On Friday morning at eleven
o'clock Joseph E. Brennan and Chas.
A. McCarty, attorneys for Teresa Mc
Donnell, presented a formal motion
to the Court for a now trial in the
case. The petition named several
reasons why a new trial should be
granted. Some of tho reasons are:
That the verdict was against the
law in tho case.
That tho verdict was against the
weight of evidence.
That the verdict was against tho
charge of the Court.
That the verdict should be set
aside and a now trial granted be
cause the llbollant in the case, P. J.
McDonnell, interfered with the Jury
by offering to treat them.
That George W. Wegst met and
talked with the Hbellant and lat
ter had treated him with drinks and
That tho Hbellant treated tho jur
ors to drinks immediately following
the conclusion of tho case.
That the jurors accepted the liq
uor and cigars at that time and dur
ing the case.
Judge Searle granted a rule to
show cause why a new trial should
not be granted, returnable the sec
ond Monday In August. He stated,
however, that a more specific rea

THREE CHURCHES SUNDAY.
Twerity-Tlireo Confirmed in Hones
dalo Sunday Evening Nino in In
dinu Orchard in tho Afternoon. j
Bishop Ethelbert Talbot, of South .
Bethlehem, was in Honesdale, In-'
dlan Orchard and White Mills on1
Sunday. At this place he preached
at both' the morning and evening ser
vices In Grace Episcopal church, con
firming a class of 23 In the evening
and nine at Indian Orchard in the
afternoon. The theme of the morn
ing address in Grace church was not
only intellectual knowlege, feeling or
emotional .llfo but active Christian
life; the doing of the will of God
that constituted religion In tho tru
est sense. During these services
there was unusually fine music ren
dered under tho leadership of Miss
Mabel Broad. The choir showed
ample training and sang In good
spirit. Miss Marguerite Kelley, of
Scranton, sang the offertory solo and
a duet was rendered by Mrs. L. A.
Howell and Mrs. John Archer.
Tho bishop gave a very Interesting
address in the Sunday school at
noon. In the evening 23 candidates
were confirmed, the Impressive cere
mony, that of "Laying on of Hands"
by the Bishop was observed. He was
assisted by Rector A. L. Whittaker.
The class was composed of Mrs. Har
old Van Keuren, Marguerite Bayley,
Helen Rogers, Prescilla Lambert,
Dorothy Howell, Grace Miller, Mil
dred Greiner, Louise Tolley, Isabel
Haganian, Harriet Westbrook, Helen
Whittaker, William J. Reif, W. J.
Relf, Jr., Howard C. Smith, Milton
Russell, William Keltz, Ellsha Gray,
Charles Tolley, Daniel Dudley, Mark
Koehler, John Hawker. The Scrip
ture lessons read in connection witu
this service were passages from Acts
VIII: 14-17, and Isiah XI: 2. Bishop
Talbot followed these services by a
very striking and practical sermon.
The theme was the deepening of the
character as a result of contact with
real life; the casting off of the mere
ly ornamental as the experiences of
life force upon us closer contact with
reality. The music was rendered by
the junior choir, which has been
singing regularly at the evening ser
vices for several months. This choir
of younger voices is under the
leadership of Miss Broad and show
careful training and are doing good
work. Solos were rendered by Miss
Grace Miller, contralto, and Miss
Dorothy Howell, soprano. Six mem
bers of this choir and William J.
Relf, who played the violin so beau
tifully and sweetly at the services,
yere among those tp be confirmed.
it Is doubtful If Bishop Talbot was
ever greeted by a larger congrega
tion when In Honesdale than he was
last Sunday evening In Grace Episco
Following the services In Grace
church other services wero continued
at Indian Orchard in Christ Episco
pal church at 2:30 p. m. The bishop

The case of Ernest Miner vs.
Sarah E, Miner, action in assumpsit,
was settled Thursday afternoon by
a meeting of the principals and at
torneys In tho sheriff's office. Searlo

TO AID IX SUFFRAGE FIGHT.
Helen Ring Robinson Will Tell
Honesdale Folks How Votes for
Women Work In Colorado.
Colorado's flrst woman senator,
Mrs. Helen Ring Robinson, will come
to Honesdale June 24 to assist her
eastern sisters In their battle for the
ballot. "Suffrage, as I Have Found
It," will be Mrs. Robinson's theme
In her lectures.
Mrs. Robinson is chairman of the
Committee on Education In the Colo
rado senate, and Is a member of sev
eral other committees. The mini
mum wage question is one In which
she has been greatly interested.
"The social evil," says she, "lies
at the door of all of us, who consent
to women being paid less than they
can decently live on." Mrs. Robin
son Is convinced ?8 a week Is tho
lowest amount a woman can live
on decently. She has been chiefly In
strumental in getting Colorado's re
cently passed minimum wage law
through tho assembly.
"Instead of disrupting the home, I
believe that suffrage Is the one solu
tion of the preservation of tho
home," Mrs. Robinson said. "A
man thinks no less of his home be
cause he is out in the world fighting
battles of dally existence; nor does
"No man is perfect unto himself,
In home or in public life, and tho
feminine element of sympathy and
motherllness was never so essential
to legislation as now. The more
truly feminine a woman Is tho more
truly she can bring something to leg
islation." Before her election Mrs. Robinson
became well known as literary edi
tor of a newspaper and Is a maga
zine writer of note. She Is a gradu
ate of Wellesley. Barnard, too, re
members her as a former student.
She has spent much of her time In
study at Oxford, In London, and In

Wilcox Sued Mumford First and
Lost In Trial Gallagher Testified
That He AVns Driving Car.
The second chapter to the story of
the accident which occurred on the
state bridge on August 1G, 1911, was
begun when P. H. Iloff and C. A.
Gairatt, attorneys for Reuel Wilcox,
started suit in the local court
against Thomas Gallagher to recover
damages to the amount of $2,000.
The suit was started against Galla
gher on his admission that ho had
driven the car that collided with
Wilcox's team of horses on the day
The statement filed Friday sets
forth about the same facts as wero
brought out in the trial last week
In which Wilcox tried to recover
damages from Winfred Mumford.
He alleged at that time that Mum
ford was driving the car which ran
Into him at the state bridge and
damaged his team and wagon and
injured himself, but the evidence of
Thomas Gallagher, John Caufleld,
Edward Doney and Mumford him
self pointed out that it was not
Mumford that had been at tho wheel
It was further intimated in the
trial last week that the Brush car,
model of 1911, which the party were
driving, was owned by the Consoli
dated Telephone company, and was
used by tho employees of that com
pany In their work. There was no
evidence given in the case last week
to show that tho party In tho car
were out In the interests of the com
pany but Just having a joy ride.
The Jury In the case against Win
fred Mumford which was tried last
week brought in a verdict in favor
of Mr. Mumford, and so failing In
that action, Messrs. Iloff and Garratt
have started suit against another
member of. tho party who testified
that he had driven the car on that

in St. Luke's church, Scranton. The
couple were unattended. Tho bride
wore a blue traveling suit.
Tho couple left for a trip to Ni
agara Falls, after which they will
make their home In Scranton.
and was finished Friday morning.
Attorneys Wm. H. Lee acted for the
plaintiff and Searle & Salmon wero
tho attorneys for the defendant.
Tho following jurors were drawn:
Archibald HInes, Preston; L. E.

The case was an action In re
plevin of a military band organ,
style 173, valued at J750 which was
leased to E. H. Cortrlght on August
30, 1911. The defendant alleged
that he had purchased tho organ at
Sheriff's sale from E. H. Cortrlght,
lesseo thereof, for arrears of rent.
Several witnesses were heard. It
appeared from the arguments of the
attorneys that prior to the sale of
the organ the Nerth Tonawanda
Musical company failed to notify tho
landlord that tho organ was under
lease, therefore giving the lessee tho
sole interest at the time of tho ex
ecution of the sale.
Judge Searle held that tho sheriff
had a right to sell the property on
execution. He Instructed the Jury
to give a yerdlct n favor of the de
LOCALS DEFEAT TEAM
FROM KEYSTONE LEAGUE
SANDY, HEAVY HITTER, FOUND
THE BALL FOR TWO BASES,
Best Article, of Ball Played on Local
Grounds Tlds Year Attendance
Was Small and Home Team Fail
ed to Pny Expenses.
There were many fans in Hones
dalo who had never heard of tho
Keystone League, much less of the
"Crescents," leaders in that league,
up to last Saturday. It must have
been this fact that made some of the
less loyal rooters stay at home, for
the crowd on Saturday was not large
enough to pay expenses, notwith
standing the fact that the Keyston
ers put up the best article of base
ball fielding seen here in many a
day. It took the local ball tossers
twelve Innings to beat them, and
then they, were lucky, for the win
ning run was the direct result of the
only error made by the visitors.
Wo do not mean by this that the
locals were outclassed, for we be-
lleve that with even breaks of the
game the Honesdale team can win
from this samo team four times out
of five, our weakness now being lack
of team play, which will come as the
season grows older and the team gets
more practice together.
Otto Iloff, of Syracuse University,
and also of Cherry Ridge, pitched
eight innings for tho locals, and
allowed nine scattered hits in eight
Innings, and would have won his
game In the regular number of In
nings with perfect support. He Is
a good addition to tho local pitching
staff. Pitcher Loll, the 17-year-old
wonder from White Mills, pitched
the last four innings and only al
lowed one hit. The features of the
game were the fielding of third base
man Jones and first baseman Cawley
and Catcher Jordan of the visitors,
and Sandy's two-base wallop that
scored the winning run In the 12th
for the locals.
Honesdalo scored flrst in the sec
ond inning. Sandy was passed and
Mangan singled, sending him to
third. Lily laid down a perfect bunt
along the first base lino and beat It
out, Sandy scoring and Mangan
stopping at third, but Larson, Iloff
nor Weaver could not bring him In.
We scored another In the fifth, when
Iloff and Weaver singled, and Ed
mund gavo Brader a base on balls,
and hit Tarkett, forcing In a run.
Our third run came in the sixth.
Lily was given a base on balls, Lar
son sacrificed him to second and
Iloff singled. The fourth and win
ning run was scored in the twelfth
Inning. Evans fumbled Schilling's
grounder. Brader sacrificed, and af
ter Jacobs struck out, Sandy, the
hero of last Saturday's ninth inning
rally, again came across with the
timely two-base wallop to deep cen
ter, scoring Schilling.
The "Crescents" scored two runs
in tho third when Mangan erred on
Byron's liner and Iloff hit Faherty,
and Evans and O'Rourke each sin

made in the eighth on the squeeze
play. O'Rourke singled, and Lar
son let Sandy's throw to catch him,
stealing second, get through him,
O'Rourko taking third, Woodridge

Capt. Brader Is playing with a very
sore hand which accounts for what
seems to some to be a slump in bat
ting. Manager Spencer has promised
Honesdalo first-class base ball pro

and he is certainly doing his part,
but Saturday's attendance was not
encouraging, when wo consider that
he Is about $75.00 in debt. Now,
brother fans, let's do our part. DO
One of the best attractions for
Honesdale since the sporting season
opened will bo given at tho local
grounds on Saturday next when tho
Western Bloomer Girls, champion
ladles' base ball club of the world
will cross bats with the Maple City
team, Tho game will be called at
half-past two o'clock.
