chapel at Dorranceton was dedicated.
Itev. J. G. Eckman, the presiding eld

mittee, read a report of the work that
has been done. It showed that the

two stories high. There are a large
number of Methodist people living In

BURGLARS AT DALLAS.
They Crack if Snfo nt Hatfield's Storo
Wllkes-Barre, June 7. Burglars of
the safe-cracking species operated In
Dallas yesterday morning. At 2 a. in.
they entered the large general store of
Harry Hatfield, and blew open the safe
by exploding dynamite, first drilling a
hole In the top of the safe. The door
was blown completely across the store
and other parts of the safe were scat
tered promiscuously about the store.
In order to deaden the noise of the re
port two large sacks of salt were placed
on the safe. The burglars secured $15
1n cash and a lot of valuable notes and
papers. They also pried open the
money drawer under the counter, which
contained about $1 In small change.
Strange to say, however, they did not
touch the contents of the drawer,
v After they had finished their nefar
ious work in the store the burglars
chartered (without the company's per
mission) a Lehigh Valley hand tiuck,
on which they rode to a point below the
Ice Cave hotel. There they threw the
truck over the embankment, and pro
ceeded, It Is believed, toward this city.

Plttston, Juno 7. The two-story
frame building on South Main street,
owned by William Wilson, sr., and oc
cupied as a butcher shop and residence
by his son Will, was almost totally de
stroyed by fire at 3 o'clock this morn
ing. The younger Mr. Wilson was up at
the time and was walking with a
lighted lamp In his hand, Into the
storeroom to see what time It wos,
when the lamp slipped from his hand
to the floor and exploded. Some cloth

WOMAN IN THE CASE.
Diiryea Gallant Stabbed by His Rival
Willie Escorting the Young Lady
Home from a Christening.
Plttston, June 7. Says the Gazette:
After a season of comparative quiet
ness In news circles Duryea, as usual,
opened tho week with an addition to
her already long list of crimes, with a
stabbing affray which, In all prob
ability, will result fatally to at least
one of the victims.
The christening of an innocent little
Infant brought about the tragedy. The
christening took place at the home
of Joe Mlledsky, at the corner of Don
nelly and Stevenson streets, Sunday.
Mlledsky also conducts a saloon at
this place. Numerous friends of both
sexes were in attendance and consider
able fire water was consumed. This
may or may not have been the cause
of the tragedy. Certain It Is that one
Simon Wllkalls, who now languishes In
the Luzerne county Jail, apparently ob
jected to Peter Dapken escorting a lady
friend home from the christening, nnd
the liquor may have Inspired him to
commit the terrible deed which fol
lowed. THE STABBING.
Everything went on harmoniously
until about 11 o'clock when the lady
above mentioned started for home
In company with Dapken. The latter,
who boards with the saloon keeper, and
who Is a fine looking and well-built
fellow, was on his way home when, he
says, his assailant met him In the road
In front of the saloon and, without u
word of warning, drew an ugly weapon
and stabbed him. The knife entered
the right side and penetrated the lungs.
Dapken uttered a piercing shriek of
pain and sank to the ground. The cry
brought the large number of Inmates of
the house to the scene and a free fight
ensued, extending into the saloon. In
the fracas Frank Watzsewltz, one of
the guests, was badly Injured by being
stabbed in several places. The keen
edge of the knife almost severed the
left arm, while his face and shoulder
are horribly mutilated. His Injuries,
though serious, are not necessarily
Dapken's Injuries will probably prove
fatal. After being struck he was car
ried Into the house and Dr. Burlington
summoned. When 'the injured man
was seen by a reporter, although' able
to talk, he was In a sinking condition.
He Could not give any reason for the
foul attack nnd said he had never
had' any trouble with Wllkalls. He
paid he had accompanied the woman
to her home merely for a walk and
was not aware that his wou'.d-be mur
derer had more than a passing ac
quaintance with the lady. The doctor
wns of the opinion th'at the man would
Immediately after committing thc
act, Wllkalls made his escape. At 6
o'clock this morning Constable Rlttle
went to the fellow's boarding house
on the back road.' Apparently Wllka
lls had not retired during the night
for, he was watching for the appear
ance of the ofllcers. As the constable
entered the back door Wllkalls hurried
out of the front door and made with
all haste to th'o woods. Here he hid
himself. The constable with three as-
slstart.-, scoured the woods for several
hours In a fruitless effort to find their
man, which was not accomplished un
til 9 o'clock. He, with two other prin
cipals In the affair William Stankos
ky and Mathlas Lurowsky were taken
before 'Squire Motlska and given a
htnring. Wllkalls was committed to
await the result of his victim's Injur
ies and the other two were each held
In $1,000 ball.
