A CORNER IN
The Pennington Family.
Sir Isaac Pennington, Who Settled
In Philadelphia Ephralm, Who
3Iay Have Been Hl Son, Settled
In ConnectlcntThe Nctt Jersey
Chambers Family Oridn of the
By FRANCES COWLES.
The Philadelphia branch of the Pen
lngtons in America trace' their descent
from Sir Isaac Pennington, lord mayor
London in 1643 and commissioner
the high court which tried King
Charles L Owing to the fact that Sir
Isaac did not sign the death warrant,
he .Is not to be classed among the
regicides. , Sir Isaac was a worthy
scion of the ancient Penningtons. The
members of this branch of the family
spell their name with ona "n."
The members of the other branch
of the Penningtons in America spell
their name with two "n's," and al
though they are surely descended from
the same stock it is not known where
the founder of this branch in America
Ephralm lived In England. There
Is some slight reason to believe that
he was a son of Sir Isaac Penning
ton, the lord mayor of London, who
was the direct ancestor of the Phila
delphia branch of the family.
Ephralm landed In New Haven.
Conn., in 1643 and died in 1660. From
Connecticut the family later removed
to New Jersey. Ephralm had a son
of the same name who married Mary
Brockett They had two sons, Ephralm
and Judah. of whom Ephralm removed
to Mendham, Morris County. N. J., and
settled there Judah had a son Sam
uel, who married Mary Sandford and
had nine children.
The name was early found In Eng
land only In Cumberland. Westmore
land and Lancaster, and there Is no
doubt that all who bear It were origi
nally derived Tfrom the Penningtons of
Muncaster castle. Cumberland, where
Jamel de Penlntone lived. In 'the
time "of King John one branch of tne
family took the name Mulcaster now
called Muncaster from the name of
the castle where they lived, and this
family seat Is at present the residence
of the Barons Muncaster. whose fam
ily name is Penlngton.
Sir John de Pennington, who was at
tached to King Henry VL, secretly
gave his sovereign refuge in Mun
caster when the king was in flight
from his enemies. In token for the
gratitude the king felt he gave his
subject a glass ;cup of curious design
and with it a kingly blessing.
"So long as this glass remains un
broken," said the king on that long
ago day at Muncaster, "a male heir
shall never be wanting to the Penning'
Needless to say the gift which has
been called the "luck of Muncaster"
has ever since been carefully guarded
and Is still preserved in the castle of
The arms of the Penningtons, which
are. Illustrated, are the arms used at
present by the Barons Muncaster.
They are described:' Or, five fusils con
Joined In feise azure. The crest is
mountain cat, passant guardant prop
er. The supporters are, dexter, a. lion
guardant proper charged on the breast
with an oak banch vert: sinister, a

motto is:. "Vlneet JUnar Patriae." The
motto over the crest is: Flrm Vigi
Awer 4a Correamoadeata.
To, P. Tv C who asks for Information
of the Chambers-family of New Jersey:
-The branch of. the Chambers family
established In New Jersey was that
of John Chambers, who was bora la
- f Vv ... -t it I M
Miss May Roper, whose marriage was
CopjrUht tu CUnMhut.
Scotland about 1677. and who went
with his father to County Antrim. Ire
land, when he was a boy. In 1729 he
left Ireland and came to America,
settling in Trenton, N. J., that year.
John had a son Alexander, who was
born in 1716 in Ireland. He manu
factured spinning wheels and chairs
in Trenton, and was one of the fore
most men there in the work of tne
i-resoyienan unurch. He was, in
fact, one of the corporators of the
church given, through Gov. Belcher,
by George I. the English King. From
1756 till his death he was a trustee
of the church, for thirty years from
1766 to 1796 he was treasurer of the
church, and for fifteen years he was
president or the board.
Alexander Chambers was commis
sary of the State troops of New Jersey
during the revolutionary war. His
wife. Rose Crage, was born In Ire
Alexander's descendants were most
of them pillars of the Presbyterian
Church of Trenton. Alexander's grand
son, John Story, son of John and
jiiiiueui oiory LnamDers, who was
a lumber merchant, was president of
ine cnurcn board for two years. He
married Elizabeth Scudder. of Cran
bury. N. J., and had a son. John Story,
born in 1S23. who was in the State
militia in the civil war and who was
a man of- public spirit, doing mucn
for the growth and development or
nis nauve town and State.
To L. T. B. who asks for the origin
of the surname Bordon.
This name has. had a variety of
torms tjoroone. Harden. Berden. Blr-
dln, Burdon. Bourdon, and the hardly
recognizaoie lorm, Bordinghe. In
Italian. It is Bordonl. Variations of
the name are Borda. Bordelon, Bord
ley and Bording.
Borde is an old Saxon word mean
ing cottage, and Bordaru. a name
found in the Domesday Book, mean
In England there Is a town called
Borden, and there the family owned
fine estates as early as the twelfth
century. Those who favor the tradi
tion that one of the Conqueror's fol
lowers was a Borden the name ap
pears upon the great Roll of Battle
Abbey as Burdoun point to the Nor
man town -Bourdbnnay as the cradle
of the family. In France, at this day,
the name appears as de la Borde and
Then another theory Is advanced re
garding the origin of the name as a
surname, similar to that first men
tioned. Borde means a cottage, the
termination den. a woody valley. Some
one lived In a woody vale. In a cot
tage. He had no name he might
have called himself Smith or Jones,
but he preferred the more appropri
ate appellation, Borden.
The staff a pilgrim crusader bore
was called a bourden. For this rea
son, as a play on the name, or be
cause a Borden Joined the Holy wars,
a bourden Is emblazoned upon the
family coat-of-arms. Andreaa Per
foratus. (bored) is the name Andrew
Borde. the original "Merry Andrew,"
calls himself ,ln his "Boke of the In
troduction of Knowledge," written In
the reign of Henry VIII.

Nation Wondering What Con
gress Will Do with Reports
HALF MILLION, WASTED
Jangling Conclusions Reached by. the
Commission Members Present
When Congress meets In December one
of Its most puzzling. If not pressing,
questions will be what to do with the
Jangling Industrial Relations Commission
Should there be any action?
If there is not, it will mean that the
most costly Investigation of social con
ditions ever undertaken by any nation
win nave come to naught
More than half a million dollars will
have been poured out without commeas-
uraoiy benefiting the United States.
Many Industrial wrongs will have been
exposed, but as to the cure no remedv
will have been found.
For two years the six men and one
woman composing the commission, to
gether with a large staff of investigators
ana clerks, took testimony., They held
meetings throughout the country, from
Los Angeles to New Tork.
The range of their Inquiries was so
wide that most of the public must have
been puzzled to know Just for what pur
pose tne commission existed.
Object of Inquiry.
The exact object of the inquiry is
shown in the creating act of Congress,
approved August 23. 1912, which directs
the members to Inquire Into:
L The general condition of labor in
the principal Industries of the United
States. Including agriculture, and espe
cially In those which are carried on In
2. The existing relations between em
ployers and employes.
3. The effect of Industrial conditions on
4. The rights and powers of the com
munity to deal with the relations be
tween Industrial conditions and the pub
5. The conditions of sanitation and
safety of employes and the provisions
for protecting the life, limb and health
of the employes.
6. The growth of assoclatlbns of -em-ploers
and of employes and the effect
of such associations upon the relations
between employers and employes.
7. The extent and results of methods of
S. Any methods which have been tried
in any State or In foreign countries for
maintaining mutually satisfactory rela
tions between employes and employer.
9.Methods for avoiding or adjusting
labor disputes through peaceful and con
ciliatory mediation and negotiations.
10. The scope, methods and resources
of existing bureaus of labor, and possi
ble ways of Increasing their usefulness.
11.- Questions of smuggling or other il
legal entry of Asiatics Into the United
States or its insular possessions and the
methods by which such Asiatics gain
12. The underlying causes of dissatis
faction In the Industrial situation.
Many of the troubles of the commis
sion were caused by the dislike which
several of the members developed for the
methods of the chairman, Frank P.
Walsh, a Kansas City (Mo.) lawyer.
Mr. Walih Is an avowed enemy of
wealth. He admitted time and again his
hostility for men of great fortune. His
remark that he could not approach the
subjects before the commission with
Judicial poise made even his friends gasp
and drew from ex-President Taft the
remark: "What Is meant by Judicial
poise? Merely that an Investigator is
trying to find out the truth."

led by Mrs. J. Borden Harrlman, the only
woman member, also attempted to have
Chairman Walsh moderate the fierce and
uncompromising Wtltude toward men of
large fortune at the hearings of the
commission. They told him he should
not act like a prosecuting attorney in a
criminal trial, but as a seeker of facts.
Another cause of trouble was the so
called report of the commission on the
strike at the Bayonne plant of the Stand
ard Oil Company of New Jersey. The
commission, it was learned after the re
port was published, never considered the
Report or authorized Its delivery to the

investigate the strike and then, without
consulting the other members of the
commission, he made public the report
as though coming from the commission.
The Bayonne report made a sharp, di
rect attack on the Boikefeller family
and Its methods in dealing with Its em
ployes. It declared that the "outcome
of the strike constitutes a complete vic

its vital policies: that Is. Its refusal to

nor his minor successors were able to
do, it has broken up the great social
democratic party in Germany.

Perhaps the most tragic element In
the breaking up of the great socialistic

question as typically national and Im

thought so were evidently mistaken, ana
the later attempts that were made to
bring about a reconciliation served only
to widen the breach.

The fate that overtook the Interna
