The high school nlumnl held Its an
nual meeting, reception and dinner last
evening In the apartments of the old
Faurot house, on Washington avenue.
The nfter-dlnner speeches were inter
spersed with certain remnrks, which
showed the ill feeling which the action
of the board of control In refusing the
uso of the high school building as a
banquet hall has engendered. Presi
dent of tho Boaid T. J. Jennings was
present.
Attorney George B. Davidson and It.
J. Beamish, president and toastmnster
respectively, were the nlumnl's spokes
men. President Davidson, In opening
the post-prandlal exercises, mude tho
first crack at tho board. He spoke In
a sarcastic vein, and said the board
should have consldeted tho matter
more thoroughly. He designated tho
board of control us the"most powerful
autocratic body In the whole city." "I
speak advisedly when I say this," said
Mr. Davidson. He then showed the
alumni how the largo sum ot money,
5300,000, passed through the hands of
councils every year, "But," said the
nlumnl president, "the mayor's veto
stands over tho action of counclts like
a shadow. Now look at tho boaid of
control. Here wo have a body of men
who handle almost as gtcat a sum of
money every year, and It Is without n
check of any kind. No wonder our
board Is composed ot men of good
Judgment and good business ability."
The words wore spoken In the most
sarcastic tone Imaginable.
WHAT THE TOASTMASTEH SAID.
President Davidson concluded by In
troducing P.. J. Beamish as toastmnster
of the evening. Mr. Beamish also had
something to say about tho board ot
control. After he had fald It he intro
duced Attorney John M. Harris, who
responded to the toast, "The Uses ot
Life." Attorney Harris told the alumni
that President Jennings was piesent at
his (Mr. Harris') Invitation and w felt
sure that President Jennings would
fully explain the action of th board
Piesldent Jennings did Ills tlma
came whet' Toastmustc" BeainUh of
fered Mr. Jennings "thro' minutes" to
respond to a toast, "The Senate, the
High School of America," in the place
of Senator J. C. Vaughan.
President Jennings, In fierce language
told how Mr. Beamish had come befori
tho board and told them there would bo
no dancing at the banquet. "Under
these conditions," said Mr. Jennings,
"the members were In favor of the
building. But word reached as that
the alumni did really intend to dance
and we don't believe in turning the build
ing into a dance hall." He further re
ferred most freely of Mr. Davidson, et
al,. He designated them as "those fel
lows that go around with swallow tail
coats and high foreheads, thinking
that they know It all."
Ho said that when the alumni would
present their requests in the proper
form the board would welcome them.
THE OTIIEH SPEECHES.
Aside from these unprogrammed fea
tures tho banquet was a most enjoyable
one. Mr. Harris' address was a skill
ful effort, Charles E. Daniels, on tho
toast, "The Girl Graduate," was grace
ful and refined In his treatment, Miss
Ulna Langan, a favorite at alumni
gatherings, readded to their good opin
ion on tho subject "The Male Grad
uate." Hon. John P. Kelley was not
present to respond to the toast "Hu
mors of the Law."
P. E. Kilcullen made a nice effort
in representing "The Class ot '97." At
torney John J. Murphy spoke of "The
Importance of Athletics." Mr. Murphy
gave an Interesting argument. "The
Silent Toast," to absent members of
the alumni, a new feature, was drunk
and "A Word at Parting" was spoken
by Professor G. W. Phillips.
Tho Misses Itose and Irene Hann
sang sweetly during the evening'. Their
selections were "In Old Madrid" and
"O Lovely Night." Bev. Rogers Israel
offered grace before the banquet,
which was served by Hanley. Dancing
followed, the Lawrence orchestra fur
nishing the music.

MRS. E. E. PARFREY
LOSES HER BOY
Alderman Millar Gave lllm Over to the
Custody of Mrs. W. B. Duggan.
THE REASONS FOR HIS ACTIONS
Number of Witnesses Wcro Exnmlncd
to 1'rovo Thnt Mrs. I'arfroy Is Notu
I'lt Person to Hnvc tlio Custody of
tho Child -- She Lives nt No. 10
Jiiicknwnnim Avenue and Recently
Figured In nn Unsavory Cnsc.
Alderman Millar's court room yester
day afternoon had nn assemblage of
fifteen women, most of whom wcr sub
poncnaed on the caseof County Detective
Leyshou against Mrs. E. E. Parfrey,
who was charged with criminal negli
gence In the care of her nine-year-old
son, Frankle. The case was the out
come of certain disgraceful actions In
No 1C, Lackawanna avenue, where Mrs.
Parfrey lives. The woman was arrest
ed on a charge made by Mrs. Charles
Johnson In which Mrs. Parfrey and Mr.
Johnson were concerned. Mrs. Parfrey
was held under ball to appear at court.
This was last Saturday. Mrs. Dug
gan heard of the bad state of affairs,
and Inquiries led tho Charity Agnt to
believe that Mrs. Parfrey was not a
lit woman to tako caro of a child.
Therefore, County Detective Leyshon
began legal proceedings against her
and the case came up before Alderman
Millar yesterday morning.
Owing to tho absence of witnesses
adjournment was made until 9 o'clock
p. m. At that hour the alderman's of
ilco was crowded with witnesses and
spectators. The boy, Frankie, was the
centre of Interest. Mrs. Parfrey, his
mother, had not arrived yet.. One wo
man bought the boy a bag1 of peanuts.
another some candy, Mrs. Mllleck, who
lives at No. 10, purchased a pair of
new shoes and a new straw hat, both
of which wero placed upon the little
fellow In tho oOlce.
THE BOY'S COMMENT.
When his mother came in the boy
whispered to one of the kind friends:
"If my mother knew where she was
going she wouldn't wear that dress."
The dress in question was of shlney
black silk made after the fashion of
thirty years ngo. The woman herself
Is of the dark featured type of beauty,
with snappy blue eyes.
Frankle thought she was going to
Jail.
Attorney L. P. Wedeman appeared
for the defendant. County Detective
Leyshon was the prosecutor and Mrs.
Dugan and Miss Kelsel, of tho board of
charities, were present. The first wit
ness called was Alfred Parfrey, the
"last" husband of the woman. He said
that Mrs. Parfrey taught the boy to
tell lies. The boy Is nine years old, but
his mother compels him to sweep the
house, wash the dishes and wash and
Iron his own underclothes, and make
his own bed. This is what Mrs. Par
frey's husband testified.
On direct examination the witness
said that he was not Mrs. Parfrey's
first husband.
"What are you, tho second?" inquired
County Detective Leyshon.
"Oh, my, no 1" exclaimed Mr. Par
frey, "I'm aVay behind that." He,
thought that she had married six men
at least.
"Do you know any beside yourself?"
"Yes, one," said Parfrey; "Jim Hayes
of Shanty Hill. She has another at
court," he added.
HEARD HIM SCREAM.
Mrs. Melleck, a fine looking woman,
testified to hearing the boy's screams as
his mother whipped him. The boy used
to hold up one end of the clothes line
on the roof while the clothes dried.
"What Is your business?" suddenly
asked Attorney Wedeman of the wit
ness. "A housekeeper," she answered.
Attorney Wedeman then charged th'at
Mrs. Melleck was not the prQper person
to testify to the care of a child. Mrs.
Ray Brown, ot No. 10 Lackawanna
avenue.said that tho boy never went to
Sunday school.
"Do you go to Sunday school?" de
manded the counsel.
"Yes, sir," answered Mrs. Brown.
"You're a real, nice lady," sarcas
tically remarked the attorney; "that's
all."
Mrs. Edmund Parfrey, of Adams ave-nue,slster-In-law
of the defendant.was
a talker. She testified In effect to
what the proceeding witnesses had
said.
Attorney Wedeman asked her one
question, and the answer came so snap
pishly that he Judiciously decided to
quit right there.
This evidence was thought to be suf
ficient and Alderman Millar gave the
child into the custody of Mrs. Duggan.
Frankle will be kept at tho Homo for
the Friendless until the matter of his
indenture to some one shall be decided
by the county Judiciary.
