The Pastor, Against Whom Damaging

Holds the Upper Seat.
Talking: Membera Threatened With the
Police Affidavits of Unseemly
Conduct by the Parson.
Patkkson, N. J., September 11. To
say Uut the members of the W111U Street
Baptist Church expected a circus last
night at the meeting to Investigate tne
Gulrey-Bradbury scandal would be to ex
press the thing mildly. With this knowl
edge the little street in which the Baptist
Church stands was crowded at an early
hour. The Bradbury faction was tri
umphant, for the Hev. Jos. fi. Ash,
whose publication against the pastor bad
excited such Indignation, and . who
had been expelled from the last
meeting, had announced that he had
other charges to prefer against the per
son which would prove that the Brad
bury slander was not a slander. -Pastor
Guirey took the chair and hymns were
suDg. But the harmony was rudely
broken by a point suggested by the
deacon to the effect that the parson had
no right In the chair; that it was an ad
journed meeting, and that Mr. Johnson
who had presided at the last gathering
onght to assume the Presidential func
tions. "No, sir," said the pastor, "I am
above you ail. No man uuder the gates
of Heaven has the power to remove me.
1 will preside. 1 shall preside. And now
let me say that brother Ash, who was
voted out of the last meeting, must leave
"One thing at a time," shouted a mem
ber, while the women hooted and chil
dren lauiihud in sheer joy at the anticipa
tion ol the
GOOD THI.NOS TO COMK.
Votes were taken aud 105 against 70
voted that l'arson Guirey should keep the
chair. As that geutlemau had appar
ently not the least iutention of resigning
it, he was not as much elated as might
have been expected.
"And now," shouted one of the par
sou's parti-aus, "that that question Is
disposed of, let Brother Ash leave the
rouin, or I'll call for an oilker to put hitn
out. There are crowds of policemen
hme." (There were two).
Urothur Ash rose to his feet, lie was
nut a bit afraid; he knew his streuth.
"1 want to say one word. May 1 bay
"No, no," shouted the women.
"1 must say one word," persisted
"Hurry up, then," shouted half a
dozen, "and have done with It.
"It the brother bad a grain of Chris
tian feeling he could not say a word,"
came from the chair. "He has no right
to say a word."
A perfect tumult arose at this moment.
Shouts of "Call the officer! Officer, turn
him out!" sounded through the edifice.
Then up stood a deacon on his stumpy
httle legs and
KLKCTKIFIKD ALL PRESENT.
"There is no need of these unseemly
proceedings. May God come down and
strike me dead If we don't find out the
truth. May God visit me this instant If
we dou't anive at a right conclusion."
There was a moment s silence, during
which a pin could have been heard fall.
The solemnity of this invocation had
struck terror into the breasts of all pres
ent. Ihen Deacon bmlth took posses
sion of the floor and did his best to profit
by the sutxiued condition brought about
by the extraordinary utterance of the
preceding speake . "The two articles
publ.shed by Brother Ash," he said,
"charging these crimes to l'astor Uulrey
were derogatory to the best interests of
the church. Ash wrote them both, we
know. He disgraced himself at my
house by calliug the pastor a liar. That
Is gross unchristian conduct. Still, let
me say, I would shake hands with him
as a friend, but not as a member of the
To this charming little condescension
Brother Ash replied by a withering
scowl, and Deacon Smith sat down and
smiled at the pastor, his partisan. Then
the Reverend James It. Ash arose. The
opportunity tor which he had been wait
lug all evening had come.
"American citizens," he said, with
pathetic kindness "lor you are Ameri
can citizens I want to do what Is right.
God help me to do it. I wrote the dam
aging articles. They were damaging,
aad were meant to be so. I will show
that the character of yonr pastor Is no
better than It should be." Brother Ash
then read a sworn affidavit of a Newark
woman to the effect that l'astor Guirey
had courted her, took her to the theater
and acted indecently In her presence, and
that at other times he induced her to be
lieve that he was a widower and about to
The howls that arose were simply aw
ful. A large number of ladles left the
church on account of the Indecent details
of the affidavit. Mr. Uulrey denounced
the affidavit as false and made a speech.
Finally Ash's charges were reftrred to
a committee of deacoos. Deacon En
gland was then tried on the charge of
calling the pastor a liar and acquitted.

The story was told by stableman Attar.
While Miss Runyon and a lady from

building. She wheeled the horse around
and drove furiously toward her home,
and springing out of the wagon she ran
toward a well, thirty feet deep, with ten
feet of waUr la it, and threw herself
over the railing. Adolph Runyon, a
cousla, caught her and prevented her
from carrylug out her purpose. Since
then she has frequently threatened to kill
herself, but he Is kept under strict sur
velllance. It Is feared that her reason
ias given way. She Is twenty-four years

plasterer, took a contract to do a job of

that be must leave the town. He asked
what was the matter and was told that
they "didn't want any more nigger work

leave. Both the men then turned and
went to the depot, where they boarded

Father and Three Children Murdered Th
Wife An Accomplice Her Sub

Bkaver Glen, W. Va., September 11.
The clearing up of an old and forgotten
murder mystery was effected here yester
day in a most remarkable manner. About
the year 1808 several abortive attempts
to sink coal shafts along the river were
made. One of these shafts was near this
place. It had been sunk about twenty
five or thirty feet and abandoned soon
after. Wild stories of unearthly sound;
coming from Its depths were circulated,
but died out and were forgotten. The
family living nearest to the abandoned
shaft was that of John Ireland,
who lived In a cabin In a ravine, a quar
ter of a mile away. Ireland was reported
to be well off, as wealth went in those
days In mouutaluous regions. One of
the men concerned In sinking the shaft,
ira lompains, huutr about the neighbor
hood, spending much of his time at Ire
land's. If any suspicion of his feelings
towards Ireland's rather pretty wife ex
isted, no one seemed to remember it.
One day, after an alleged absence from
the neighborhood, Tompkins reappeared
at a neighbor's, saying no had just come
from the Ireland cabin, where he found
the threejchildren dead on the Uoor and
Ireland ana his wite missing. The neigh
bors visited the cabin and saw evidences
of a terrible struggle. Mrs. Ireland was
found in the woods a short distance
away, bound to a tree an J gagged. She
appeared to be greatly exhausted, al
though now it Is remembered that she
presented no evidence of havlug engaged
lu the struggle. She declared that In the
night her husband bad killed the chil
dren, and that she was afraid to cry out
lor tear that he would kill her. Alter
killing the children he attacked her, but
at her frantic prayer, spared her life,
Douna ncr to a tree ana then dlsap
peared. She declared that he was
As Ireland never returned, her story was
believed, aud In course of time the
tragedy was forgotten. A year after Ire
land's disappearance Tompkins and Mrs.
Ireland were married. Quarrels were
frequent, and one morniu!, four years
ago, the woman was found dead In bed.
Heart disease was said to be the cause.
There was no outward evidence ot foul
play, and so the matter ended. Tomp
kins left the country and has never been
beard of since.
Yesterday a party of boys were at the
old shaft aud one of them accidentally
dropped his watch into It. A leafy limb
was procured and the atmosphere In the
shaft thoroughly stirred, so as to drive
out foul air. Then a torch was mado
and, with the aid of a rope, the yoong
fellow was let down. In groping about
In the debris he was horrified at finding a
skull and made an outcry. He was
drawn up and the authorities were
notified. . They Investigated and dis
covered portions of the skeleton
ot a man. in the search for something
that would turnleh a clew, an old copper
tobacco-box was found and In It, badly
scrawled, was a history of the murder ot
the Ireland children written by Ireland.
He declared that he had been attacked by
Tompkins and his wife and left for dead.
He revived sufficiently to see the murder
of his children, but could render no aid.
Afterward he was seized and dragged to
the shaft-hole and thrown In.
Tho story seems incredible, but James
Warner, an old resident, says that he
Identifies the tobacco-box as one belong
ing to Ireland. Ho says that the writing
Is that ot Ireland. The theory Is that
after being thrown Into the shaft, Ire
land revived, and, knowing he must die,
wrote a history of the crime. Evidently
Tompkins bound Mrs. Ireland to the tree
to avoid all suspicion. It Is now said
that Tompkins killed his paramour' be
fore he lied.
