The new chapel site Is on tho east

be ready for occupancy the latter part
of this month. Ah the building is to
bc only a temporary structure It will
bo plainly and Inexpensively built and
in future vears will give way to a
substantlnl and permanent building.
About "00 persons witnessed yester
day's corner-stone laying, the attend
ant services being conducted by Hev.
Dr. Joseph K. Dixon and opened by
him with n brief Invocation of divine
blessing upon the work. The doxology
was filing by the gathering and Psalm
St wijs read by Dr. Dixon.
HISTOU1CAL MISSION rOKM.
Attorney J, V. Ilrowning, the assist
ant superintendent of the mission, read
an original poem, which wns a history
Of the mission In verse. He prefaced
the poem by remarks In feeling remem
brance of Mr. Amerman. "Nearer My
God to Thee," the hymn that was sung
at the breaking of the mission ground
on the 1Mb, wns repeated.
Kx-Lleutenant Governor Watres, who
was tho business associate of Mr.
Amerman, but who Is not a member
of the Penn Avenue church, wns in
troduced by Dr. Dixon as ono of an
other faith, but n Christian man and,
through ids long and close association
with Mr. Amerman, well lltted to speak
on such an occasion.,
Governor Watres remarked lie would
not mar the ceremony with a formal
address, for If any duty should be free
of poi'iip and vanity it was the present
one. There was an import In the ser
vice and a lesson in the stone; the ono
told of strength and tho other of eter
nity; the whole was a united firmness,
cemented nnd in unity. It was an Illus
tration of unity and true brotherhood,
united hearts and hands. This sug
gested a thought often expressed by
Mr. Amerman that each hand had a
work to do. Ho often illustrated the
thought by telling the familiar story of
how the Holland boy saved the dikes
by thrusting his hand Into tho hole
made by the waters.
Governor Wntres said lie would bo
untrue to what was uppermost In Ills
heart and tho hearts of his hearers If
In did not speak particularly of the
deceased superintendent. He related
that when lie returned to Scranton
with ills friend's body, a loved one
asked. "Did he send nny message to
me before he died?" A thought Hashed
through the speaker's mind at tho time
and he answered: "Yes; his life was
his message." It was a valuable mes
sage not only to those near to him, but
to others who knew and respected him.
His great belief was that ono should
love and obey the Truth:
A poem by Whlttler relating to the
example and precept of a Rood life was
read by Governor Watres at tho con
clusion of his address.
LAYING THE STONE.
A tin box Was then nrnrliirn,l. T.
contained the newspapers giving the
news oi Mr. Amerman's death and
burial, a bible, issues of the Church
Messenger, the Penn avenue church
publication, nnd a photograph of the
deceased superintendent. These, Dr,
Dixon remarked, were in lieu of the
customary articles of future historical
Interest and were simple tokens of the
faith of those assembled and memen
toes of him after whom the structure
The box was placed in a space pro
pared for it beneath tho corner-stone.
The latter wns small in size and was
. easily put In place after cement had
been laid on tho wall beneath it, after
which Dr. Dixon pronounced tho cere
mony performed in the name of tho
Father, the Son and tho Holy Ghost.
The hymn "How Firm a F6undatlon"
was sung and the service was con
cluded with n prayer by the pastor.
Tho singing was led by C. F. Whitte
moro At a recent meeting of the officers of
the church it was decided to recom
mend Mr. Urownlnr for superintend
ent of the mission. He will probably
be elected nt the next meeting of the
congregation. The mission teachers
are Isaac L. Post, Mrs. George K.

FAMOUS COAL SUIT

Tho big coal suit between John Jer
myn & Co. nnd Elliot, McClurc & Co.
was up In argument court yesterday,
S. II. Price representing the plaintiff
and Major Warren and ex-Judge A. O.
Furst, of Bellefonte, appearing for the
Tho suit has been actively and con
stantly before tho courts for over four
years. It was Instituted In June, 1S93,
was referred to W. W. Lathropo. as
master, who spent three years In tak
ing testimony and ono year In framing
his report nnd now is up under excep
tions to the master's findings.
Jermyn & Co.'s claim Is that tho de
fendants clandestinely mined 300,000
tons of coal from a tract In Old Forgo
which they, the plaintiffs, have title to.
The defendants, make answer that they
took tho coal under a parole agreement
with Jermyn & Co. This agreement,
it is nlleged, was an exchange of sev
enteen acres of a superior quality of
coal, owned by the defendants for a
twenty-one aero of Inferior coal owned
by tho plaintiff, tho exchnnge being
made, It Is averred, because the loca
tion of the respective companies' shnfts
made It a matter of mutual conveni
ence for each to mine the other's coal.
REFUSE TO ADMIT.
Jermyn & Co. deny the alleged parole
exchange and refuse to admit having
had nny knowledge of the mining oper
ations until the tlmo of bringing the
suit, although tho defendants show
that they made an accounting period
ically of tho tonnage and sent the
same through Jermyn & Co.'s olllee to
the New York, Susquehanna and West
ern company, the carriers. It Is also
proven that Jermyn & Co. entered up
on and mined coal from the tract they
got In exchange.
There wns onlv one witness to the
nlleged parole exchnnge and ho died
In 1893, thirty days before the bring
ing of the suit. Major Warren In his
argument made the contention thnt the
platntltls grew sorry of their bargain,
and when, through their lawyer they
found out that a parole exchange does
not stand in law unless there is a third
party ns witness, proceeded to repudi
ate the agreement and sue for tres
pass. Mr. Trice denied that there were nny
grounds for this theory nnd argued for
tho sustaining- of the master's report,
which found that there was not suf
flcont evidence to warrant the accept
ance of such a theory.
Ex-Judgo Jessup Mulshed his argu
ments for n new trlnl in the Von Storch
enso yesterday morning and for nearly
three hours Major Warren followed
with arguments against tho disturb
ing of the verdict, going over the evi
dence In detail to show that the ver
dict was In perfect consonance with It.
The only other matter In argument
court wns the discharging of the rule
quashing t,he appeals from the assess
ment for grading Luzerne street.
