Brooklyn Clergyman Prompt to
Act on Finding Church Closed
by the Vestry.
Friends of the Rev. Dr. William
N. Ackley Say Bishop Bur
gess Sides with Him
m Fight.
With his back to the doors at his
church, which had been locked against
him by the vestrymen, the Rev.' Dr.
William N. Ackley, rector of St. An
drew's Protestant Episcopal Church,
Fourth avenue and 30th street. South
Brooklyn, held three of the four regular
services yesterday while members of his
congregation stood around him on the
lawn. He conducted the services in the
usual way. changing them in no man
ner save to leave out the sermon at the
10:45 o'clock service because of the heat.
Dr. Ackley was forced to perform his
duties as rector outside the church edi
five because when he arrived yesterday
for the first service at 8 o'clock in the
morning he found a notice posted by the
wardens and vestrymen informing the
members of the congregation that be
-as no longer in charge. About two
hundred men and women were gathered
and talking about the notice when the
rector arrived. They expressed their
sympathy. Unable to grasp the mean
ing of the notice. Dr. Ackley drew his
keys from a pocket and tried the church
doors. They were not only locked but
had been fitted with new locks, thus ef
fectually barring the minister from
gaining an entrance.
I »r. Ackley asked the men and women
t.. return f.-r the I<>:4."> o'clock service,
and they did. Standing in the open air.

over three hundred men and women
sang a hymn. When it was finished
with few exceptions they shook hands
with the rector and assured him that
they were with him.
At 2:30 o'clock over two hundred chil
dren gathered for Sunday school with
their teachers. Oecitatkms were held on
the steps and on the sidewalk, while
crowds of persons living in the neighbor
hood looked on. . There was talk of com
pelling the vestrymen to open the doors,
but not one of the nine men were in
Dr. A> kley appeared again last night
for prayers, over which he officiated by
lantern light. Nearly all the members
of the congregation were present, and
most of them promised to stand by their
rector against the vestrymen.
The charges against Dr. Ackley have
been made public. It is held by the
vestrymen ami wardens that he is too
old to be of further good to the church.
He is called inefficient and is accused
of such disregard of his duties that a
debt of $10,000, which was on the church
when he took charge sixteen years ago.
is not yet paid. The vestrymen also
say that he is overbearing with them.
Members of the congregation declared
last night that Bishop Burgess is with
Dr. Ackley. They said that it was on
the. advice of the Bishop that the clergy
man appeared for all the four services
Friends of the rector said that the
action of the vestrymen in posting a
notice discharging Dr. Ackley is illegal.
They say that not even the Bishop can
relieve the minister of his pastoral of
fice until a board of three vestrymen and
two laymen have heard the allegations
and have brought him to trial.
Dr. Ackley would not talk last night.

him not to do so. It is known that he

The robbery was much like one of four
years ago. when $6?.f>00. consigned to
Seattle by the Washington-Alaska Bank,
of Fairbanks, over th>» Yukon River-
Skagway route., was stolen from ■ wood
en strong box by "Bobby" Miller, night
watchman on a Tanana River steamier.
Miller secreted the gold so well that
pfter his arrest on suspicion the owners
of the bullion were glad to make terms
with him. He' was promised a short
prison sentence if he returned the cold,
and he produced 150.080, alleging that the
other $19,000 had been stolen from him-
Leg Broken, He Crawled Six
Miles and Got Aid for Owner.
[By TeTPKrsph to Th" Tribune. ]
Williamsport, Perm.. Sept. 11.— With on*
leg broken and one eye blinded by be*
stings, a shepherd dog owned by Patrick
Dolin. of Cross Forks, crawled six miles
through the woods to •• house and
whined ■ message that obtained aid for
his master, unconscious and ■ prisoner
beneath h tree that, he had felled to
gather a store of honey. .
Dolin also was terribly stung by the
enraged bees. and. had it not been for
the sagacity of his canine companion,
there ii little doubt that he would have,
perished, as his family did not know in
which direction nt went when he left

era end of the old Bergen tunnel of th
Erie Railroad in Jersey City.

only for freight traffic. f| Is the purpo«*
of the Erie to run four tracks throueh
the new. cut. and gangs were at work at
both ends of the tunnel, where It curve?
toward the new cut, tearing it out for
about three hundred feet to straighten
out the curves and make room for the
fourth track in th» new cut.
It was the gang on the Sunday shift
at the west portal that was ■-•right by
the cave-in. William Hallisy, one of th»»
men killed, had been o.it of work for ?ev
i era! months and had got his first work
j yesterday morning on the Erie ttfnn°l.
A negro who applied for work wa? mor»
fortunate. He was told to take off hi-»
coat and pitch in. but when he saw th*
nature of the ground he refused the job.
Most of the. men. however, had been on
the job of the new cut. working for th*
Millard Construction Company, of Phila
delphia, and had heap sxvitched over by
them to the work of tearing out the eM
tunnel when the new cut was finished.
They wore badges of the Millard com
pany, and most of the dead and injured
had time checks and pa- checks of th«»
Millard company in tbe«r pockets. They
j were chiefly rock drillers and their help
