Just listed so long as one docs not forget
to insert the "n" after tho "M" In Mna

faU name himself, partly to mako It
mora difficult, but chiefly, ho said, "be
cause the W has spiritual significance."
Come to think of It, various Jcrseyltes
from Brlello to llumpus In the south and
Jrem Hackensack to I'ascack and even
oil to Hohokus on the north, used to
call Angel Dancer Mnason a lot of other
names, too, but In deference to the scar

Was "The Holy One."
For almost a score of years Mnason
also called himself "The Holy One,"
While he was head of more than a score
of Angel Dancers,llvlng on "The Lord's
Farm" In the Pascack section of northern
New Jersey. But recently he has turned
himself Into Santa Claus or King Lear
or any other whiskered person that the
embryo John Bargents of the Art Stu
dents League In West Fifty-seventh
street wish him to be as he reports at
the league dally to pose for the students.
The news, which came to light yester
day, that Mnason the Holy One had
returned recently to the world via the
class rooms of the Art Students League
til' the first word concerning him to
roach newspaper offices since 1909, when
tho Holy One and the last of his Angel
Dancers were evicted from the Lord's
Farm. But when the going was good
than were times that Mnason must have

Tarred and Feathered.
i aTrom the last of the '80s until
on after the birth of a new century
tho Holy One gave his attention to
being tarred, feathered and ducked In
Ice water by Irate neighbors, being ar
rested, acrvlng sentences, conducting
tho Lord's Farm near Woodcllft Lake,
being evicted, quoting Scripture, writing
hymns and singing them, having his
head and flowing beard forcibly shaved
by mora Irata neighbors, exiled to Jersey
City, seeing visions and explaining
Creams. Also in the '90s ho waa an
apotfle' of non-resistance and therefore
waa Just quarter of a century ahead
of hla time.
Mnason first appeared In northern New
Jersey in 1SS7 as a lay exhorter in the
Methodist faith. He began to see visions
and tell the details of the visions In his
sermons. The visions ho told of bore
ao marked a resemblance to the doings
of the well known cutups and men about
Faaoack not to mention prominent
Hackensack clubmen that one tflxht
hands gripped the Holy One In the dark
and half hla hair and the port wing of
his whiskers were shaved off. Then
somo one in the mob with a particu
larly cruel mind suggested that the
Holy One be banished to Jersey City,
which was done.
But ha returned quickly to the Pas-
eacK region, or as quickly as the Erie

Carmar'a son named Garret Storms, who
eaoa had been a student at Rutaers.
welcomed tho Holy One Into tho .Storms
Coaverts the llonaehold,
. Store ho stayed until he had con
vetted Garret Storms and hla brother,
Richard Storms, their mother and their
good logins- sister, Mary Storms. And
In a very little while Mnason had gained
control of tho Storms farm, which ho
wad the headquarters of his cult and
ailed It the Lord's Farm.
In ISfS the Bergen county authorities
began to investigate stories the neigh
bors told of happenings on the farm.
Twenty-eight followers of Mnason wero
found to be living In the farmhouse,
nine of them long haired men, seventeen
women and two children.
Among them wero men known on the
farm as "John the Baptist," "Silas the
Puro," and "Titus" (Garret Storms),
while other names were "Thecla" (Mrs.
JIM Howell), "Phoebe" (Mary Storms)
and "Qoi. the Great One," or "The Holy
One, who was Mnason himself. Tho
band was Indicted on a charge of run
ning a disorderly house and all but Mary
torms, who has since died, were found
arullty. Only Mnason and Mrs. Howell,
however, were sentenced. The pair

Knason came right back to the Lord's
Farm after serving the year In a Tren
ton ell. Ho and his followers ran the
farm profitably for years. Occasionally
Mnason broke Into print, but his hold
on his foUowers was slipping. "Titus''
Worms turned upon him at last, "John

Mnason waa legally ejected from the

When a few days ago an old man with
long white hair and a luxuriant white
board applied for a Job at the Art Stu
dents League as a model he was wel

noo scorned earthly things, acquired

Got Hnisc in Wages and Short
er Hours Through Slate
Following a conference held yesterday
between IX O. Hkelton, manager of the
Western Union company, and a com
mittee representing the messenger boys
who went on strike several dnys nio, In
which Col. Michael J. Kiaii and John J.
Bealln represented the State bureau of
mediation and arbitration, a satisfactory
settlement was reached between the com
pany and the boy. The 1,000 mes
sengers who were on strlko returned to
work Immediately,
Hy the terms the messengers were
granted Increases In wages and reduction
in the hours of employment. Both sides
agreed that the strike was settled largely
through the efforts of the state
mediator, who suggested a compromise
which proved acceptable to both sides.
The boys who formerly received less
than 3 cents a message will now receive
2 cents, while those getting that
amount formerly will get 2',i cents.
Errand service which formerly paid 10
cents will pay 15 cents. Kach of the
messengers who works ten hours . day
will be granted an hour for lunch. The
boyH employed In the night service will
get a any oft every second week.
Mr. Hkelton said the Increases granted
to the boys amount to 25 per cent, and
that the service would soon bo normal.
Alexander Marks of the Federation of
Labor also acted as a mediator.

Prof. Farnnm Demands More
Clergymen ns Life Mem
bers of Board.
Corporation Directors Not
Barred, but Ho Says Control
by Them Is to Be Deplored.
Nw Havc.v, Conn., Nov. 4. In a
statement that Is baund to cause
widespread controversy among Yale
men everywhere, Henry W, Farnam,
Yale '74, professor of economics, to
day called attention to the fact that
Yale Is substituting Joint stock company
directors or attorneys in place of rep
resentatives of literature or science ns
fellows of the Yale Corporation. Prof.
"am am also pointed out the question of
the legality of this departure from Yale's
charter provisions and asks how Ynle
will be Judged by the youngest of Its
daughters, Yale In China, If Its action
Indicates that it does not want to have
any mors clergymen In the list of fel
lows. Prof. Farnam stated that accordlnr to
tho original charters of Yale In 1701 and
1723 the collegiate school was estab
lished by ten clergymen who were desig
nated as trustees, partners and under
takers and that they were to elect as
their successors ministers of the Gospel,
residents or the Connecticut Colony oi
State. Later acts of the Connecticut
Assembly In reference to Yolo College,
Including that of 1745, made somv
changes but said nothing regarding the
qualifications of the trustee or fellows
further than reciting the earlier acts.
I .arnica Outnumber Clergy.
In discussing the departure recently
from the original Yale charter Prof. Far
nam said: "Whereas eleven years ago
ten clergymen constituted the life mem
ber of the corporation, there are now
four clergymen and five laymen. All
tho laymen are connected In some way,
either as officers, directors or attorneys,
witn joint siock companies. Thero Is
no representative of literature, science.
medicine or art. For more than a
century and a half there was no devia
tion from the practice specified In the
act of 1723, and all of the fellows were
Connecticut clergymen down to the early
part of the twentieth century.
"The legal question turns upon the
construction of the act of 1745. It wao
a complete charter in Itself, superseding
an or tne earner acts. As held by Gov,
Baldwin and some other authorities,
there are no restrictions upon the elec
tion of successors to the original trus
tees, and therefore legally they can choose
people or either sex and any aae or
proression. This is obviously the view
taken by the corporation since 1902,
though It has never been passed upon by
a court of law.
'It is certainly no disqualification for
a position on the Yale Corporation to be
ronnectcd with a Joint stock company.
iiKirea, its business affairs could not,
under present conditions, be eucccasfully
managed If It could not command the
advice of experts In this field. But It is
reasonable to ask how far the university
should go In, substituting men who are
In their dally life mainly concerned with
corporate Interests for men who are In
their dolly life concerned mainly with
matters or scholarship and ethics.
Changes Balance of Interests.
"It Is natural that the nlumnl should
elect as their representatives men who
are prominent In business life, and that
is what has been done. The gradual
election of men of tho same type as the
life members of the corporation 1ms re
sulted In completely changing the bal
ance of Interest In that body and while
eleven years ago mere were six renre
nentattves or business to ten clergymen
there are now eleven to four.
'According to a recent newspaper Item
(for which, however, the writer assumes
no responslbllty) Mr. Rockefeller holds
that If the Apostle Paul had lived In the
present generation he would have been
a captain of Industry. Those who take
that view naturally will accept the Im
Plication that It wo want to put Into the
corporation a man of the St. Paul typo
it is in tne uirectory or Directors that
we must look for him, and slnco we
cannot have too much of a good thing
It might be well to continue In what has
been the tendency of late years and elect
to the corporation only those who are
concerned In the management of Joint
stocK companies.
There are others, doubtless, who
think that an Institution whose declared
purpose Is the education of the youth
in the art and sciences, which maintains
religious worship nnd which Is not In
frequently concerned with important
Questions of ethics, should retain a con
slderable proportion of men who stand
more distinctly for scholarship, science
and the humanities than for successful

The fact that room-size

be termed Carpets), will satisfy
the taste of the most exacting.
