H jr equalled by his discrimination in doing good.

Ki' Mr. Cobcoban devoted millions of his
Hsjp wealth to public uses, and was most generous
Hl in private charity. In this ho set an example
Kjty which tho pleasure that ho experienced and

Tho indignant lndy turned hor back on the
clerk and flung tho bill on tho tablo. Ho was
quito willing to transfer tho responsibility of
pacifying hor to tho landlord.
"That woman in 'Thirty-five' is rowing
about hor bill and snys .there is a draught in
her room. I guess it is tho draught in hor
pockotbook that she fcel. Sho insists on
sooing you, and you will find it very enter
taining," said ho to tho proprietor, sarcasti
cally. That gontloman was a man of about forty,
fivo, with noatly trimmed black beard and
generally prepossessing manners. Ho re
paired to No. 85.
Tho irato lodger had hardly acknowledged
his grcoting whon sho oponod fire on him.
" What, do you ask for cold air in this es

" SunBhino, fresh air and politeness are not

" And how much bullying from negro call

" Thoro nro no underpaid officials in tho

guests will coufor a favor by reporting any
inattention on tho part of tho servants."
" I think I have hoard thnt beforo," said
tho lady. " Well, ouo of your negro cnlL.

" There is your bill. You can keep it as a

asked tho proprietor.

Her touo ot voice had been gradually
raised, both in pitch and intensity, until sho
almost screamed tho lost words at tho stupe
fied hotel uiuu,
"I decline to take tho bill. It is
the usual statement of your indebt

the lady, who was not disposed to let him

" Tho womau must bo out of her mind,"
ho said to himself as ho went downstairs.
Ho thought tho matter over for a while, and
then wroto a note to uio asking thnt I would
ha(! the kindness to call ou him as soon as I
could. Wo w ero personally acquainted.
I found an opportunity fur seeing him that
afternoon. IIu recounted the peculiar way iu
which tho lady had received tliu bill, "The

Tho proprietor looked bothered and waa
out of sorts. I suggested to him that ho
should havo tho woman brought before a
pollco magistrate and her mental condition
ascertained. Should it bo discovered that
she was out of her mind, sho might be com

This course seemed to commend itself to
tho proprietor and ho acted upon it, with the

To fA Edttor rf Th Krtntng World t
District Assembly 84, which Is composed of the
printing and ktndre-1 tradea of this city and vicin
ity, has delegated to this committee tbe duly of
placing before the public a few truths In connec
tion with the great strikes now agitating the State
ot Pennsylvania and tbe whole United States.
For the past four months our neighboring State
has been the scene of a gigantic Industrial conflict
between organized labor on one band and monopo
listic capital on the other. The contest has been
an unequal one.
Tho miners, on wtnse behalf we appeal to you,
have made a gallant right to realst tho attempts of
their taskmaatera to reduce their wager, which
were only a notch above the starvation point.
Arrayed against the miners are all tbe corrupt and
cruel forces of coil and rsllroad kings, whose
names have been synonymous with cruelty and
In tho face of hunger, destitution and Pinker
ton thugs they have stood out like heroes for their
right to live like men. Their struggle Is one that
commends Itself to every fair-minded man and
woman. The justice of their causo bas received
the Indorsement of the press, aud what they now
need U money, and tlicy need It promptly.
N'jw, aftor an agreement hsa been made that
those who should seek re-employment should not
bo discriminated against, the company's managers
have begun a system of " weedlnz out " the load
ers and thoso who wero In any way prominent, so
that even the papcra that wero In favor of tbe com
pany have declared sympathy with the victimized
Notwithstanding many of the men have returned
to work, It will be almost a month before they re
ceive any pay, and there are many waiting for
" only enough to appease the pangs of hunger."
Children and mothers, whose Innocence in connec
tion with blame attaching to the strike all can see,
shonla not be allowed to suffer for bread In this
land of plenty.
In view of these facts District Assembly M,
Knlghta of Labor, appeals to you to open your
columns for subscriptions for these people, and to
quest that yon publish the names of all who con
tribute. The presa can materially aid a good work
of this kind. Will The Evening World help Dis
trict Assembly 64 to aid those who are not In posi
tion to aid themselves?
All subscriptions should be forwarded to the

BT. GABRIEL'S CIIDRCIL
A Parish With, an 'Extensive .Edneatlonal
System A l&e.ch' of the Pastor.
When the Itev. William Clowry, an as
sistant at St. Stephen's, was appointed by
a Archbishop Hughes,
in 1859 to organize a
new parish south of
tho Church of St. John
tho Evangelist, Dr.
Henry J. Anderson,
n professor of nintho-
mattes in Columbia
College and a recent
' convert to tho Catholic
faith, Ravo to tho now
church eight lots on
john m. farley. Thirty.sovcnth street.
This gift was n timely ono and enabled
the pastor to go ahead at onco with
tho building of tho church unhampered by
dobt. Beforo erecting a permanent building,
however, a chapol capable of holding 1,000
peoplo, and which could also bo used as n
school-house was built. This wns completed
in 18S9, and was dedicated under the invoca
tion of St. Gabriel. It wo.1 used for fivo
years as a temporary church. Meanwhile
money was being collected for the building
of the permanent edifice, bnt tho work went
on slowly because of tho distress occasioned
by the civil war.
Tho cornor-stono of tho now building was
finally laid in 1884, aud was completed in tho
autumn of tho following year at n total cost
of 80.000. Tho edifice is a handsome struo
turo of the Gothio stylo, with a frontogo of
f8 foot on Thirty.sovcnth street and a depth
of 138 feet, aud a graceful tapering spiro ISC
feet in height. It is built of liolleville stono.
Tho interior decoration is in harmony with
the stylo of architecture and is handsome and
artistic, without being elaborate. Tho altar
is beautifully carved and tho altar pieco is a
copy of Quido's celebrated painting of the
Annunciation by Mazolini.
Tho dedicatory ceremonies took place Nov,
12, 1865, Archbishop McCloskey officiating,
assisted by the Vory Ilev, William Starrs,
V. G.. nntl tho sermon was preached by
Bishop Lynch, of Charleston, S. 0.
The parochial school, which had boen es
tablished in 1839, was at that timo in a pros
perous condition, and it is now one of tho
largest institutions of its kind in Mew York.
It is under the care of twenty-seven teachers,
the Christian Brothers having charge of tho
boys' department, and tho Sisters of Charity
of the girls'. The avorago daily attendance
is nearly two thousand. BesideB the parish
school thero is a select school in EaBt Thirty
sixth street, under tho care of fivo Sisters of
Charity, which has 100 pupils.
There aro several associations connected
with tho church, among which tho most
prominent are tho Conference of St. Vincent
do Paul, St. Gabriel's School Association, the
Rosary Society, tho Young Men's Musical
and Literary Association, tho Confraternity
of the Sacred Heart, the Society of the Holy
Namo and a Young Ladios' Sodality.
Tho church wos thoroughly repaired and
redecorated in 1885, and a now high altar of
white marble, ot a cost of $7,000, ono of the
finest in tbe city, was erected as a memorial
to Father Clowry, who died June 12, 1884, aud
was Bucceedod by Mgr. John M. Farley.
Undor tho guidance of tho latter the affairs
of the parish have been prosperously admin
istered, and especially havo successful efforts
been made to maintain the high standard of
excellence in tho parochial schools, which
wero established by tho founder of tho par
ish. A short time ago the construction of a hall
Buitablo for exhibitions and public meetings
was begun in Thirty-sixth street, in the rear
of tho church. It is now nearly completed,
and is a model of what such a building should
bo. It will bo colled St. Gabriel's Hall, and
it is tho first building of its kind to bo
erected in the city. Tho interior resembles
Chickering Hall. Its cost will bo 35,000, it
will seat 1,000 persons, and it is expected that
it will be opened boforo Easter,
Tho Very Itev. John M. Farley, the present
Fastor of tne church, was born in Armagh,

Eighth and Ninth avenues until I reached

as usual, 'Extra! Latest account of tho

" Then a policeman, accompanied by a

" Ho would not tako the paper, but said ' I

" I am an old-timer," continued Brady,

serious trouble Ho must explain to the H
Polico Commissioners why ho swore that hit U
rocord was clear when lie had been arrested
several timos beforo applying for tho position I
of patrolman. I
Counsellor Grant has token chargo of tho tf ).
case on behalf of ex-Policeman Christopher K'
Clark, who has become Bach's acouser. I
Clark was dismissed from tho police foroo I
recently. Ho attributes his troublo to the I
persistent hounding of Bach, and he threat I
oncd that if tho roundsman .went on the I
stand as a witness at tho trial before Com- I
missionor Voorhis it would bo made very un I
pleasant for him. I
Bach was presont in tho drill-room during;
tho trial, but Commissioner Voorhis advised M
him not to testify, as it would air Boilod 1 J
linen, especially as tho evidence was suffi. '
cient to " break " Clark. A dismissal fol
lowed, but a few days ago Judge Patterson,
of tho Supremo Court, issued a certiorari.
Clark's caso will bo roviowed. Lawyer Grant
says that Clark will bo reinstated.
This morning Clark filed an affidavit with
Supt. Murray iu which ho sets forth that
Emil Bach, at present doing duty as a rounds,
man in tho Twenty-fifth Procmct, was ar.
rested prior to his appointment as a patrol
man under tho namo of Charles Wilson, to.
g other with Francis Murphy, John Itauff and
iharlos McGunniglo, and that the Grand '
Jury indicted him jointly with tho threo men
for tho crime of robbery in tho first degree.
Clark further says that he is is prepared to
show that in tho samo year Emil Bach, under
tho namo ot Charles Wilson, was arrested by
a policeman for assault, these facts being
capablo of proof by four roputable witnesses, 1
whoso names and addresses can be furnished, I
as can bo the records of tho courts. B
Clark furthor avers that Bach, at the time m
of his application to bo appointed a polioe. II
man, did swoar falsely when ho made am- II
davit that ho had never beon arrested for any A
offense. It is alleged that a sergeant now on ''
tho Mulberry streot squad arrested Booh M
undor his alias of Wilson more than a score B
of timos whon ho resided in James street and 1
kept a disorderly house. I
Accompanying ex-Policeman Clark's affl. I
davit is a letter to tho Police Commissioners, 1
colling thoir attention officially to tho
Bach does not deny tho facts of his arrost
and indictment, but ho claims that tho matter
was investigated officially by Commissioner!
Erhardt and Wheeler sevoral years ago, and
that they exonerated him by failing to put
him on trial.
The roundsman says that the offenses now
brought to public notice wore committed
noarly thirty years ogo, when he was a wild
young man, and that later on ho reformed
his conduct and that ho has led on exemplary
life ever since. He insists that Clark iB per
secuting him for an imaginary ovil, inasmuch
as ho did not cause tho charges to be pre.
f erred against Clark, but merely watched his
walking a crack and swelled his breath
whon called upon to do so by Capt. Gunner,
his superior officer.
It is tho talk at Police Headquarters this
morning that if theso charges are pushed
against Bach two more roundsmen in other
precincts will bo hauled up for making false
affidavits, as it can bo proven by the records
that they served n sentence in the peniten
tiary boforo they wero oppointod on the
forco, one for larceny and the other one for
being drunk and disorderly.
