HORNEY BORROWED TWO DOLLARS.
Then He Adopted n New Method of
Avoiding Payment-
George Horney, of Marshwood, was
liefore Alderman Millar yesterday af
ternoon on a charge of obtaining money
under false pretenses and assault and
battery. Mrs. Mary Thomas, also of
Marshwood, was the prosecutrix. From
the testimony given at the hearing It
appears that last April Horney bor
rowed $2 from Mrs. Thomas. Last Sat
urday she demanded payment and It
was refused.
Mrs. Thomas was angry and In leav
ing Horney'a house she slammed the
door with such right good will that a
small mirror was Jarred from a shelf
and broken. The mirror was worth
about 25 cents, but Horney fixed Its
value at $20, and had Mrs. Thomas
arraigned before Justice of the Peace
Cummlngs on a charge of malicious
mischief. She was held In $500 ball
for her appearance at court.
Saturday night Mrs. Thomas went
to Harney's house and offered to re
place the broken glass, Horney put her
out of the house and assaulted her.
He was required by Alderman Millar
to furnish ball on both charges for
his appearance at court.

ardor of tho cyclift.
; ...

...
Tho Orson nidge Wheelmen vlll hold a

tho first social event under the care of
the new social committee, of which Ho
bart Hayden Is chairman.
...
Scranton racing men have made many

Coleman will ride an "Olive;" Marsh a
"Stearns;" Strong a "Sterling;" Greg
ory, Keller and Koons the "Spalding,"
whllo Whlto will do his work on a home

...
A large crowd of enthusiasts will go

The case of Prank Wheeler npalnst
John and Catherine McAndrewB was
concluded at 2.30 o'clock yeRterdny nf
ternoon and Judgo Archbald then called
up the case of Mary Lally against Mnry
Moran and her husband, Frank Moran.
This case comes from Old Forge and
grows out of a dispute over the own
ership of a lot of land on William
street, In Smlthfleld. The plaintiff al
leges that she and Mrs. Mornn bought
the land Jointly for J1G0, each paying
one-half the purchase money. It was
agreed that they should Improve It and
Jointly enjoy the results.
Mrs. Lally looked after the securing
of tenants and collecting of rents from
18S7 the time of the purchase, until Jan
uary 1, 1890, when It Is alleged the de
fendants, by fraud and collusion, In
duced the tenants to pay the rent to
thni, and since then Mrs. Lally has re
ceived no returns from the property.
She now asks court to restrain the de
fendants from selling the property ns
she alleges they contemplate and com
pel them to reform the deed which they
hold so that It will acknowledge her
one-half Interest.
"WAS ONLY AN AGENT.
The defendants-aver that the parol
agreement which Mrs. Lally alleges
never took place and that the only In
terest she ever had In the property
was as an agent to look after the rents.
Attorneys C. Comegys and John II.
Honner represent Mrs. Lally and Attor

as Is generally known, Is to be applied
to the removal of the present build
ing and erection of a large department

Knights of Malta Have an AIINlght
Session (or Installation.
S1XTV-TIIREB MEMBERS ODLI0ATED
Degree Conferred mid Work Kxom
plillcd by Crnml Jtccordcr (oorgo
II. Pierce, of Philadelphia--Mid-night
Luncheon nt Mitchell's.
Something About tlio Strength of
tho Order nnd a IlrlcfSketch of Its
History, Aim nnd Purposes.
Anthracite commander, No. 211, An
cient and Illustrious Order Knights of
Malta, conducted an Installation last
night at which sixty-three members
were obligated. The ceremonies oc
curred In FInley's hall and continued
from 7 o'clock In the evening until day
break this morning, with the exception
of an hour at midnight, when a recess
was taken for luncheon.
George II. Pierce, of Philadelphia,
grand recorder of the order In Penn
sylvania, conferred the degrees. He
was assisted by a staff consisting of O.
S. Hldgewny, sir knight commander;
G. Hoffman, generalissimo; O. A.
GRAND nnconnnn pieiice.
Beemer, captain general; B. G. Uth
man, prelate; Samuel Costlett, senior
Warden; W. J. Henwood, Junior war
den; A. J. Pitman, first guard; Harold
Pease, second guard; Norman Greggs,
warder; Edward BIsbee, sentinel; E. O.
Swartz, sword bearer, and W. II. Wels
eniluh, standard bearer.
TWO DEGREES CONFERRED.
Two degrees only were conferred In
full. The work of tho other ten degrees
was exemplified by Recorder Pierce
and they will be conferred upon the
postulants periodically till all have
been conferred.
The recess was taken ot Just 12
o'clock and for an hour tho Sir Knights
regaled themselves with tho best the
season affords at Mitchell's dining
rooms on "Washington avenue. At 1
o'clock the work was resumed and It
was thought it would be half-past four
or five o'clock this morning before It
would be concluded.
The addition of those sixty-three
members gives Anthracite commandery
a total membership of two hundred and
fifty-two. The fact that It was organ
ized only last November nnd that It has
had unusually depressed times to con
tend against makes Its growth very re
markable. It is even now one of th'e
foremost commanderles of the stato
and It is expected that by the time It
Is a year old It will lie the peer of the
strongest of them. Thero Is another
commandery on the West Side and one
In process of formation on the South
Side. This latter is to be Instituted
June 12.
The annual convention of the grand
commandery of Pennsylvania was held
at Sunbury during the early part of
this month. Th'e reports then showed
that the order In this state has gained
2.2J5 members during the year and had
on its rolls a total membership of 10,733.
This membership is comprised in 101
commanderles located In seventy-one
different places and scattered through
out thirty-two counties. The order Is
also established In sixteen states and
the District of Columbia and Canada.
IT'S AN OLD ORDER.
The Knlgh'ts of Malta Is a charitable
and religious order which dates Its
birth In 101& in Jerusalem and claims
to be the most ancient knightly order
In existence, being the direct and legit
imate descendants of the illustrious re
ligious and military order of the middle
ages, tho name of which It bears.
Its membership Is confined to Prot
estants but It Is by no means Intoler
ant. It was transplanted to this coun
try from Scotland In 18 TO and In 1S84 a
grand commandery was organized here.
Since that time Its crowtli has been
most rigorous and today It Is one of th'e
strongest and most influential secret
societies in the United States.
