Court has been petitioned to appoint

worked a mine on the Canavan tract,
near Nav Aug Falls, until it burned

The petitioner is P. W. Stokes. He

Tho partnership property consists of

The dispute between the partners

left in the vein field which they hold

PREACHED TWO SPLENDID SERMONS

Tomplo--ChrIstlnn Men nnd Women
Aro Today Ilcnllzlng Their Ilc

Wnlk In tho Higlior Light.
Ilev. Dr. O. Parson Nichols, the emln
dlvlne, of Blnghamton, preached two
great sermons at the Second Presby
terian church yesterday. Age cannot
niter his infinite variety. His beautiful
diction nnd Btlll more exquisite thought
aro a source of unending pleasure to
his listeners. HIb address last evening
was on the dramatic scene with tho
Mngdalen near .tho temple. Tho spirit
of the text was embodied in tho words
found In John viil. 6, "Jesus stoop-id
down nnd with his finger wroto on the
Tho speaker described, graphically
tho early morning in tho temple from
which Jesus looked out and saw tho
rabble crowd which had .taken the
woman false to her marriage vows.
Instead of falling Into the trap laid
for him, Jesus said, "Let him that Is
nmong you who is without sin cast
the first stone." The speaker then said
"Tho pathetic story has been tho
subject of more discussion and con
troversy than anything in the new
testament. It has been rejected by
some and has been omitted entirely
from many early writers because of
Its teachings, but In every respect its
own authentic truthfulness would com
mend itself. There is hero the greatest
revelation of our Saviour's super
human wisdom and His marvelous
power In reading the secrets of hu
THE CHRIST SPIRIT.
"First It is a revelation of our Lord's
own feeling. This a deeper sphere
than many of our words depict. It Is
the Inner world of His emotions. "We
catch In the story unmistakable
glimpses of the great compassion and
love surpassing all else.
Why did he stoop down? Professor
Seeley has made a revelation in his
views of this act. The Savior was
ashamed, he Instlnctly stooped down to
hide his blushing face. He could not
meet the eye of that crowd. He could
not meet tho gaze of that woman whose
sin he read. What a disclosure Is this
of the Master's heart and soul I Have
we the Master's likeness In this invol
untary sense of shame at the tale of
vlleness, at the sight ot sin?
There are playwrights and story
writers who are continually dragging
into the public gaze the filth and deg
radation that should remain hidden,
but which they hold up for lascivious
eyes and salacious mouths. If you
have this sense in your souls there will
be entertainments in Scranton which
you cannot attend, there will be col
umns written that you will not bring
to your table to read.
There is a vast difference between
man's way of treating sin and Christ's
way. The woman whom they bring
before Him is their own sister, their
flesh and blood. Not one of them but
who should He in humility before God,
begging for mercy for her sin, but they
drag her through the streets and hold
her up like a filthy garment. They
make a tableau of her, that their own
righteousness may appear in relief.
How hard and pitiless men and women
can be to each other. If they hear of
the straying of ono of their human
kind, Instead of locking the matter up
In their hearts they go right to their
neighbors with the story and set them
selves to watch to see If they cannot
discover more sin, when probably there
are not the slightest evidences except
their own miserable suspicions and
prejudices. If the people of this city
were made Judues of each, how few
It Is said that we make It so easy for
the standing persons to go down and
so hard for the falling to get up.
POWER FOR T300D OR EVIL.
Christ said to his disciples, "What
ye shall find on earth shall be found In
heaven, and what ye shall loose on earth
shall be loosed In heaven." But not
nlone was this given to the disciples.
We have the power by looks of love, by
kind words and kind deeds, to looso
sinners, or we can by harsh Judgment
and averted Blanco bind them with
chains by thousand times worse than
sin has bound them. Are there among
us those whom wo are setting free, or
are there those whom we are pushing
down from death to death of sin and
despair, and saying: There Is no hope
for such as you!
Christ suffers as if It was his own
humanity that had dono this evil. He
cannot ever look up. You may have
seen a faithful, loyal wife who is bound
by ties of love and law to one who
nightly staggers home with unsteady
steps. But she locks the painful ex
perience fast in her heart. No hand
but her's shall let him in. No eye but
her's shall see his degrading. No bit
ter word falls on his ear. You said he
would hurt her less If ho had brought
home a club and beaten her with It.
You raid that his sin was killing her.
That is a picture of tho way your sin
cuts Into tho heart of Jesus Christ.
Some persons complain because in
the case of tho woman she was let oft
so easily. How little such persons real
ize what Jesus came Into this world for
not to condemn sinners, but to savo
them. Why does he wait until the thing
Is departed. How little they under
stand that He waits until the guilty ono
has had time alone In His holy pres
enco to realize her guilt. He then says
to her "Where aro those who con
demn thee? neither do I condemn thee
go and sin no more."
Wo do not know certainly What be
came of her, but wo can not bellevo
but that phe went forth loving and
blessing the One who stretched over her
shame His protecting hand and said:
"Go and sin no more," and that th'o
future was one crand wish and pur
pose to make a new life.
Another lesson from this story Is that
the first PBsentlal condition is to re
form ourselves. The Pharisees thought
they were doing society a great ser
vice when they dragged the woman be
fore Christ. Ho practically made them
nil conscious of their own short com
ings. It has been said that a following
out ot these teachings would subvert
the end of all law, 'jut Jesus was not

How much unwrlttoni unconscious

superiority iu our dealings with others
and wo have our own shortcomings out
of our own sight. There are much of
helping the poor and befriending the
friendless these days. All this work
is good If It Is done in tho
proper spirit, but the one who goes
about trying to do good in tho I-am-better-than-thoso-splrlt
needs to take
heed to himself. We have no privilege,
no right to do anything for others
except in a spirit of humility. We
who try to reclaim a drunkard nnd
lay a lash upon him, make a great
error when we feel such a great moral
Supposing we never have fallen into
tho evil of Intemperance: supposing wo
never have tho craving for intoxicants.
If wo had lived in tho same condition
that surrounded tho drunkard wo might
havo been different. How far nro you
and I responsible for these debasing
conditions? How far have we aided
in upholding .tho conditions which have
kept the poor not only poor, but sin
ful? Not until we have Improved our
opportunities, not until we have aided
In a true reform can we claim to be
better. Wo are all guilty for tho
wrongs of the poor. The educated are
guilty for the sins of the heathen.
Wo aro Bharers In guilt of men and
women in this when we do not aid In
helping them upward.
I thank God we are beginning to
realize .this position. Ono of the high
est evidences of the presence of tho
Holy Spirit In our churches Is that
Christian men and women aro realiz
ing the relations of virtue and th3
responsibility of others as never be
fore, and .to realize that to save one's
self Is not enough. Let us walk in
this higher light, embrace this higher
life, lhose who will not do this there
is a sure condemnation to those who
will not see tho truth as It Is. She
comes a Judge to part the goats on the
left and the sheep on the right.

FELL FROM A SWING
IN NAY AUG PARK
James Kane, 19 Years Old, Meets with a
BECAME DIZZY AND LOST HIS HOLD
Tho Unfortunate Voting Mnn with n
Companion was forcing tho Swing
to Its Best Height Mhllo Standing
Upon tho Sent Knno's Nerve Lrfft
Him nnd Ho Foil Twenty Feet.
At Nay Aug park, at 4.30 o'clock yes
terday afternoon, In the presence of
hundreds of pleasure-seekers, 19-year-old
James Kune, of Prospect avenue,
fell from a moving swing to the ground,
a distance of twenty feet. Ho struck
flat upon his face, a Jagged stone
crushing tho nasal bone and sending
young Kane Into an unconsciousness
which lasted for over four hours.
For half of that tlmo Kane lay upon
tho ground in tho park, awaiting tho
arrival of tho Lackawanna hospital
The accident cast a sickening gloom
over tho throng of persons at tho park
and save for the curious ones who
formed a big circle around tho pros
trate youth, tho place was soon de
serted. A young man, supposed to bo Charles
Judge, who was with Kane on tho
swing at tho tlmo of his fall, mysteri
ously disappeared after tho accident.
The two wero merely acquaintances
of the day. Judge, an habitual visitor
to the park, had urged Kane to swing
with him. They selected ono ot the
two big swings In the northern part of
tho park and stood erect upon the
board seat In what is known us tho
A DARE-DEVIL COMPANION.
Kane was on the southerly side.
Judge, a dare-devil sort of follow, ex
erted himself to the utmost In making
the swing "make slack" or to force
It so that when the seat reached its
height on either side tho wire ropes
would be parallel to the ground, the
downward trip starting with an Irregu
lar Jerk as the ropes slackened.
Kane at flrst threw all his strength
Into the work, but when the ropes be
gan to slacken at the giddy height
above the cross beam he was heard to
ask Judgo to stop the swing.
When Kane showed his timidity
Judge laughed at him and only
"pumped" the harder. Kane was seen
to hang his head, his features paled
and he giddily made a movement as if
to sit on the board. The swing was at
its height among the leaves of the
trees when the spectators saw Kane
half bend his body and then his hands
nervously loosened their grasp on the
ropes, and ho fell in the direction of
the swing, striking the hard-beaten
runway between the two trees sup
porting the swing. Judge retained his
hold on the swing and on tho next trip
passed over tho prostrate form of
KANE BADLY DISFIGURED.
Tho injured youth was picked up and
carried to a grassy plot near a spring.
Ho was bleeding badly, seemingly from
his mouth, ears and nose at the same
time. There was a deep Inch-long gash
In his chin.
Park Policeman McManama dis
patched a boy on a bicycle to the
central police station for a call for an
ambulance to tho Lackawanna hos
pital. The message did not reach tho
hospital surgeon, R. Newberry mill
5:45 o'clock. It was after 6 o'clock
when the ambulance reached the park.
Dr. Russell W. Chldsay, who was In
the park had administered such re
storatives as were at hand but Kane
remained unconscious. It was at flrst
believed that he would not live twen
Before the arrival of the ambulance
Kane's widowed mother, Mrs. Eliza
beth Kane, of 205 Prospect avenue,
reached the park. She was not per
mitted to see her son, the friends fear
ing that his bloodncovered features
would havo a direful effect upon her.
At the hospital last night Dr. New
bury stated that Kane will probably
recover if the further examination this
morning reveals no internal Injury.
His nose Is fractured and the cuts on
the chin and bruise on the forehead
will disfigure him for life.
Judge, the young man who disap
peared after the accident, could not be
found last night. His place of living
is unknown to Kane's friends.
