AT GREEN RIDGE
WATER SUPPLY WAS UNDER
Report Was Read from tho Secre
tary of Household Economics Sec
,tlon of tho Green Ridge Womana'
Club, Showing tho. Actual Condi
tion of the Reservoirs of tho Provi
dence Oas and Water Company.
Sample of Water Furnished Was
Offered in Evidence.
The mnss meeting of Gtcen Mdir.i
citizens, held last night In tho Green
Kldge library, to discuss the question
of the water supply furnished by thu
Providence Gas end Water company,
wn- ti very enthuslnstlr cne. In fact
it had probably moro Interest taken
In It thnn any EStherl"? of the like
ever held In arcen nidge. Ono of tho
most important features of the even
ing was the reading of the report of
the secretary of the Household Econ
omics section of tho Green Itldgo
Women's club, which organization hns
started tho agitation concerning the
question. Short addresses were maeli
by many of the gentlemen present, and
Aaron Goldsmith brought along with
him n bottle of water, which came
from the faucet In M bath-room. Tho
liquid was certainly u bad looklny
The closing event of the evening was
by no means the least important. K
contribution was taken up to raise a
fund for the purpose of pushing tho
water crusade through, and to bo
placed In the- hands of that section of
the Womans' cluU, which had been
making such vigorous efforts to carry
the thing along, $101.63, in cash and
pledges, being collected.
DR. LANSING rnnsiDED.
Tho meeting was called to order at
8 o'clock by P.ev. I. J. Lansing, D.
D., of the Green nidge Presbyterian
church, who acted ns chairman, with
Charles L. Hnwlev as secretarj. The
hall was crowded with enthusiastic
Green Itldgo people who listened at
tentively to the secretary's report, as
read by Miss Amy Von Ralls Gerecke.
It described in detail a visit to the
reservoirs of the Providence company
and the unwholesome conditions they
She was followed by Attorney S. B.
Price, who gave a hearty, enthusiastic
address. In which he substantiated the
secretary's report, he having been over
tho ground and closely examined the 1
territory mentioned. He expressed bis I
opinion that another analysis should ,
be made of Green Ridge water, and !
concluded by stating that the ladles'
association was deserving of all credit
for their Industrious effort.
Colonel F. U Hitchcock was the fol
lowing speaker, and In a few short,
terse remarks expressed his approval
of all that had been done by the Ladles'
association, and added that he believed
the directors of the company were
really Ignorant of the great danger in
curred In using the water from their
reservoir. He also suggested the ad
visability of using a good filtering sys
tem. Professor Hawker next spoke.
1 nnd, like the other speakers, thorough
ly endorsed the measures taken by the
E. B. Sturges was called upon for
some remarks, and suggested three
courses of solving tho difficulty, first,
by sending a committee to the Provi
dence Gas and Water company to con
fer with them and como to an agree
ment, if possible; second, to npply to
W. W. Scranton to supply Green Ridge
from his reservoir; nnd, third, If all
measures failed, to Indict the Provi
dence company on account of the dele
terious condition of the water. Among
the other speakers of the evening were
J. H. nittenhouse, George B. Davidson.
Professor H. L. Burdlck, Rev. W, J.
Ford and Dr. G. E. Dean, all of whom
spoko shortly and to the point.
MR. STURGES' MOTION.
It was then suggested by Dr, Lansing
that n collection be made to defray the
expense of having a Cornell expert
come here nnd give the water n thor
ough test. Mr. Sturges, however, made
a motion, which was carried, that a
committee of six, four to be members
of the Ladles' society and the other
two gentlemen appointed by the chnlr,
should confer with the Providence
Wnter company, and unless their griev
ances were given Immediate attention,
to present nn indictment at the next
meeting of the grand Jury.
The collection was then made, as told
above. Negotiations had already been
made with W. W. Scranton, relative
to the water supply, and a letter was
read from him in which he stated that
he had offered to sell water to the
Providence company nnd had offered to
buy their system east of the Lacka
wanna. IMPROVEMENT AT THE PARK.

HISTORICAL SOCIETY MEETING.
Two Interesting Papers Read Beforo
Tho literary features of tho pro
gramme for last night's meeting of the
Catholic Hlstorlcnland Newman Maga
zine club were two papers, read by Miss
Mary Ntland nnd Miss Sara AValsl.
Miss Nlland's paper was a condensa
tion of nn article, entitled "The Mak
ing of French Literature," by W. H.
Kent, which nppenred In the October
number of the Dublin Review.
The national literature of France,
says Mr. Kent, both from Its own In
trinsic worth nnd from Its central posi
tion, Is among tho first to claim the at
tention of students in literary history.
The French classic authors have lost
something of their ancient authority,
and are too often neglected or dlspnr
nged. In the opinion of M, Drunetlere
the history of a national literature Is
not an unmeaning nnd unconnected
succession of books nnd authors, but
rather the gradual growth and devel
opment, or, It may be, the decadence
nnd decay of a living organism.
The paper treated these propositions
at length and discussed the works of
many prominent French authors. The
work of condensation was admirably
The second paper of the evening was
read by Miss Sara Walsh. "The Effect
of Scientific Criticism On All Forms of
Protestantism" was discussed by Miss
Walsh In n very thorough nnd elabor
ate manner. She called attention to
two points: One, that tho non-Catholic
writers, though they look on mod
ern knowledge as reconciled with some
form of Protestantism, claim It to be
so essentially Inconsistent with Catho
licism that Catholic apologists can
meet It only by Ignoring or else by
trifling with it. The other is that the
Catholic writers themselves appear to
regard their church as In a position of
such great, though temporary, difficulty
that It must reserve its defence for
some future period, andlccllne even
to hint at present what the character
of their defence will be.
The nrtlcle aimed to showithat both
sides nro equally and both astonish
ingly In the wrong.
GINLEY THREATENED TO SHOOT

At 12.10 o'clock Monday night Patrol
man David Parry entered the Centre
street police station with a man who
gave his name as Anthony GInley. It
seemed that the man had entered one
of the lunch wagons on Lackawanna

eaten, he arose nnd made a movp to
depart. The man In charge of the
wagon put In a mild ptotest, however,
and suggested the advisability of GIn

At this GInley waxed wroth, an 1
after speaking many and abuslva
words, drew a revolver and leveling It
dangerously near the proprietor's head,

GInley was lined $10 by Mayor Molr.

There were only three witnesses ex
amined, namely, Mrs. Joseph Stemp
llnger, William Botke and Tony Vllallo,
the accused man himself, who was
brought handcuffed from the county
Mrs. Stempllnger Is the wife of the
man who keeps the saloon In which
the murder occurred. She testified
that all of tho men In the pnrty were
drunk nnd that when she reached the
room where the trouble was In pro
gress all she could see was a confused
struggling mass of men. She saw Vll
allo with a razor In his hand, but saw
him stab no ono with It, nor did she
see De Santo, the murdered man,
stabbed. She admitted that Vllallo
had cut her arm with the wenpon,
but said she was convinced he did It
accidentally In endeavoring to push
her out of the room.
SAW NO CUTTING.
William Botke was visiting at the
house when the quarrel occured and
saw the whole affair. Ho testified that
all he saw was tho crowd of men
struggling. He saw no one doing any
cutting or stabbing.
Vllnllo wns then sworn. He testi
fied that he was outside when the quar
relling began and came Inside when
he heard his bt other crying out that
he had been wounded. He stated that
he saw the razor which Mrs. Stemp
llnger snld he was nourishing on the
floor and had excitedly picked It up.
He cut nobody, he said, and at first
thought that his brother, whom he
carried home, was the only one In
jured. This closed the testimony and the
jury unanimously agreed upon the fol
lowing verdict after only a few minutes
We, the undersigned jurors, find tint

WOULD LIKE TO KNOW.
Several of the Jurymen, after the
Inquest was over, stated the one great
question they would like to see an
swered was how and for what reason
the grand Jury decided to indict Vllallo.
The members of the Jury were present
when the autopsy on the remains of
De Santo wero performed' by Coroner
Roberts and they say It was clearly
pointed out then that the fatal wounds
wero Inlllcted by a sharp pointed knife
and not by a razor. Thus, they say,
oven if Vallllo did havo a razor In his
hand, this does not prove him the
guilty man, there being no ono who
could testify they .saw him stab any
