Just as you did Tiin Mulry." l'utlier Farrell wan coaahed by Will lam H. Uutler of 190 Montague street, J'.iooktyn, who received pormlsslon from thn commissioner to advlso tho clergy nun In place of Stephen C. Baldwin, kept awriy by Illness. At Urn start of the proceeding, when Father Farrell acknowledged writing the two Icallets. "A Public SixutdaJ" and "Charity for ftevenUM," which were die trlbuted broadcast among Catholic chutclioa and tent to the Lugliluture, Commliuiloner Wrong aald: "T.-icrc Is a serious Indictment In these pamphlet, if there la a conspiracy ogiilnct tho itomun Catholic Church I should know, It." I'nthcr Farrell besides admitting that 1 .l written booklnts with tho tltlea niiii'loneil raid hn wiu the author also or four letters protesting against the Implication. "I am tho only citizen In Greater New York who has been subpoenaed here," ho exctalmed. "I knew that I was golnr to be culled and that I was going to be thrown to the llon." hen John Klrkland Clark, Commls uoiier Strong's assistant, denied that ihc priest was the only witness who had "n stibpomaed the latter characterised lie Kummonlntf of him last Friday a i "circus" and asserted that the Com missioner had no right to have M.n ques tioned for expressing his private opin ions. .Mr Clark .ulscd Father Farrell If In- utvli ritood the status of the Investi gation. hj Folks Inflnencrd Whitman. t understand CommlnMonor ftr3ng ivus appointed by Oov.

"You need not do that," returned '"her Farrell. "I have no respect for ic whole proceedings." Ho produced n anonymous p.i i plilot In which many iespaper headlines and clippings were collected to show the general press opinion of the Investigation. "The people who got up this pamphlet ire a et of skunks," h said vehemently. "I nant that to no on the record." On Mr. Clark's accusing him of dls-i-eniln'ttlng through the State falre MHtements the irlest retorted with a nferrnce to the death of Thomas M. Mulry, lite president of the Emigrant Industrial Savings Dank, who testified as to Ills conduct as a member of the St.ito Board of Charities. "1 understand Mr. Mulry died of nat ural crimes," asrerted Mr. Clark. "I avr. not sure of that." said the Unci's. "I have the testimony of his family that he w.ia In perfect health Pi lor to his appearing here." Finally Father Farrell declined to submit to any further questioning on the I'dvloe of his attorney, who argued that the investlg-itorn wern seeking to Inquire Into 'ho priest's private affairs. "Don't you think." Commissioner Strong asked the clergyman, "that you owe It to me to discuss these pamphlets, jln-c they h.ivo been circulated pub l.rly'." "No, I don't." said Father Farrell "I tvouM meet you privately and discus tho matter with yon, hut you have no tight to drag me out here In title public manner. I Intend to etatrl on the pamphlets." William II. Hotchklsf, counsel for the Charities Department, endeavored to nraw an explanation from Falhor Farrell ccm.ernins tho comments In his articles, "lid tho prleft replied warmly: "I ii-f uie to bother my head with your 'lueMlons. The Idea of your standing there uskinK mo questions !" Tin- priest, however, related how he was Informed by the editor of a Brook lyn nuuop'iper that the lutter had sent u special man to "get a line on tho In vehtluatlon." and that this man had re jiorted that n reporter for a news asso ciation had been bought and that "the newsp.ipcr Items were belroj manufac tui'd." I..itt. Father Farrell tald that he personally did not believe that either th!s reporter or th o'her correspondents reporting the Investigation were dis honest lie adde.l that he was simply rttalllnK what In had heard.

"Regular" and "Outlaws" Argue, but His Pleas for Compromise Are Scorned Title to Property May Be Affected. "It's u caso of Tweedledum nnd Twcodledee." exctalmed Hupteme Court Justice Oreonbaum last evening after he had postponed his dinner lo hear tho argument of the two r.val factions of the Ancient Order of Hibernian aa to which shall hold tho annual St. Fatrlck's Day pnrsdo In this city 0:1 Friday. He will make his decision to-d.iy. Tho two word "In America" and a valuablo bit of thoatro property at lleth street and Fifth avenuo form Ihe bone of contention. Both sides Anally ad mitted this, although at first they tried to maintain that ,ueir argument was its to who shouUi he marshal of the parade. Th. permit wa Issued .to the Ancient Order of Hltx-nilatis, New York Count), by Follce Commissioner Woods at Mayor Mltchel's order. The Ancient Order of Hibernians in America, Now York County, thereupon applied for un In junction to prevent the other faction, which they assert Is composed of man suspended from the national organisa tion because of non-payment of dues, Irom using the permit for n parade. All application was also made for u manda mus on Commissioner Woods to Issue the "regulars" a permit and cancel the first one. Words "la America" tbr Baals. The words "In America" nrn the dls tlngulshlng marks of tho two bodies. The national organisation contains tbtm In Its name und the 'outlaws" omit them, It Is ald. The property, owned by tho county organization before the schism came. Is to be made tho subject of a lawsuit Both sides believe that recognition or non-rccognltlon of tho words "in America," as deciding tho ownership of the parade jiennlt. will have a bearing on the disposition of the prop erty whan tho ivue Is tried. Thv hearing was stormy. Coroner Tim Ilealy, leader of the, "outlaw," was thore w ith John J. O'Connell of 31 Nas sau street, thulr lawer. and about 100 followers. Koderlck Kennedy, president of the "regulars." was thoro with J. I'ower iMne'.lan as attorney and an equal number of loyal ones. Mr. Donrllon explained ilrst that the Ancient tirder of Hibernians In Amer ica was founded In IJ34 und that the New York county division had held a parade every year In this city for sev enty s'cars. Under u city ordinance of 1914 It has a tight to 11 permit for the parado unless a complaint Is made against the celebration us c. nuisance. The ordinance provides that liny or ganlzation which has paraded for ten years shall be free from restrictions. Asslttant City Corporation Countel Lth tiian. who hod been served with 11 writ to appvar, endeavored to explain that this was not Imperative, but Justice Oreenbaum cut him short by declaring that such was his Interpretation ot the law. Mr. Donellan argued that slnco the Henly men had been thrown out of the national organization they could nt longer represent the Irish teop.j and that the duly accredited Hibernians, headed by Hoderkk Kennedy, known as the Ancient order of HlbtnilaiiB Irv Amerlcu, New YorK County, mut git Ihe parade pel mil. Mr. O'Connell argued that theso sus pended men form tno local roclfty, the Ancltnt Order of Hibernians. New York County, which has heretof.vo paraded, und that their standlm; with the national body matters not. Furthvrmoie, bu ar gued, their suspension was Illegal and will be Investigated at the coming con vention. Justice Quisles IlotB Sides. "Arc you In the Ancient Order of Hibernians In America, or are you out of It 7"' demanded Justice Greenbaum. "We're In It." Mr. O'Connell replied. "Then why won't you march In Inn name of the Anctent Order of Hibernians In America?" his Honor pursued. "We won't." was all he got. Then he. tried Mr. Donellan. "The permits of past years have al ways been mado out to the Ancient Order of Hibernians, New York ''ounty. without tho words 'In America,' " he said. "That was before these men wcro m pended," said Mr. I'onellan. "Then why won't you march with these men under a permit made out In th same way as tn pa.t yean?" the Judge asked. "Wo won't." And the two factions looked spitefully nt each other, while Justice Greenbaum asked, mystified : "What's In a name? It's Tweedledum vs. Twellc!ee." Mr Donellan charged openly that the Maor had ordered tne parade permit granted to Coroner Tint lltaly's (action the "outlaws," heeuuse of political alll llatlons. Tho "regulars" applied for their permit on January 6 and tho "outlaws" on January' 0. The Maor heard both sides. "He admitted we were right techni cally," declared Mr. Donellan, "but we might au well have tried to go up In a balloon with a pitcher of Icewater and put nut the light as break the political fettern that held the Mayor to his course, surrounded nr. he was by afternoon tea drinkers and midnight tangolsts. The I'o'.lcc Commissioner sat there without exercising any Judgment at all and wlvn the h'.arlng was over, "I'll b t you know to whom to give tho permit later," says the Mayor." 1 Mr, I'onellan referred to I'epu'y C m. mtsiiorit r !uy Scull as "a charming fe I low, but with vi ry little mental calibre." JuMlce Oreenbaum tried to effect a compromise, but the "outlaws" declared that they had th" permit and would not submit to any Insertion of thu words "In America." although the court sti. j guested .1 written agreement that any I such compronile shomd have no effect In uny subsequent liw trial regarding 1 the real estate, Any numlxT nf nnrgexfons were of ferei) by the court In an effort to brlmr One of Many "I confess to a weakness for such pretty lamps" said this visitor when she saw a group of our floor lamps. One 69 inches tall with fluted "ivory" column and rose silk shade in ft at Empire effect at $14 50 caught her fancy. And another of mahogany, with shade of Japanese wicker, silk-lined, at $8,75. The Lamp Section is only one of a hundred such in teresting sections at VHk tstStb -H. peace, but till appeals were firmly de clined. Finally, wcarlul lifter mure. than two hours of arguing. Justice Gieenbaiim took home with him 11 o. ' luminous mass of papers hearing on the , matter. He will give a decision on the appeal for un Injunction to-day. ' .Meanwhile both sides ngreo that there can be only half a parade, no matter which side Is favored In the decision. SING 81170 FAKADE FRIDAY. Irish Prisoners, Few In ."NiimUvr, n Observe t.
