TRinUTU TO CHAD PRELATE.
One who was intimately associated
with Bishop O'Huia in life has writ
ten the following estimate of his char
acter for The Tilbune.

his beneficial les It meant the loss of
the best of friends.
'Especially was the tidings sad to
those who grew up under his spirit

on the x carts gone by, can plctute In
the mind how the progress of his llfo t

milestones on tho road, by tho sane-

"IJishop O'Hara was a simple, hum

GAVE AT TRANKLIN MINE.
Pond Disappears nnd Two Coal Cars
Go Down.
About an aero of land aboo tho
Franklin mlno at Newtown wns affect
ed by a cave yesterday and a largo
pond near the cave disappeared Into
tho mine.
About forty feet of tho track of tho
Empire branch of the Jersey Central
railroad was affected, a big holo open
ing alongside of the track. Two gon
dolas were standing on the rails and
they toppled over on their sides and
fell Into the holo. One of them went
down quite a distance, but both of
'them can bo pulled out.
The cave was expected nnd no person
was working In Its vicinity. There was
a steep pitch In ono of the breasts and
the rock at the top of tho pitch becamo
loosened, which allowed the earth to
run down Into tho mine, affecting tlu
surface Wilkes-Barro Times.
BUILT ON THE WRONG LOT
It. Nelson LaBar Wants to Get His
Building on Hio Own Lot but
Won't Be Permitted
to Movo It.
There Is a very curious condition of
affairs now existing nt Electilc City
park In North Scranton, according to
the statement of It. Nelson LuUar.
Thnt gentleman some tlmo ago liought
two lots In Electric City patk adjoin
ing one owned by Margaret E. Dyer.
All three lots wore unimproved.
Mr. La. Bar decided to erect n resi
dence on his lots, but through soma
blunder or other the building was
otected on the lot of Margaiet E. Dyer.
She cnteied no objection until tho
building wns almost completed nnd
then she took possession nnd refused
to allow Mr. Ln Bar to move tho build
ing to his own lota, when ho discovered
tho wrong location.

Worked tho Picture Frame Game at
Norwich, N. Y.
Three men recently registered nt tho
Eagle hotel, Norwich, N, Y, who Bub
scribed their names as T. J. Gaffney,
.T. T. Powers and J. J. Mullen, of
Scranton. The Norwich Sun lias this
about the kind of a game they wrjfted:
'They represented, they fiatu, ti latgo
Philadelphia firm that made a bus.ss'
of picture frames, but had recently
become tho possessor of a secret by
which wondetful results wero obtained
In a new process for enlarging pictures.
They wctc suio that the quality of the
work could but demand the attention
of everjone, und the ptice was t,o low
pel haps the only existing picture of
soma deiir relative or friend and the
man would walk nway wl. It, leaving
a iccelpt and a promise that tho work
would bo delivered ln a shoro time.
I Two or three days later another repre-
sentatlve of the same firm called. He
showed a large line of earnples of plc-
ture fiames, nnd said that the firm
had sent him to sell a frame for the
plctuie that was being enlarged. 'In
asmuch as the enlargement was to ba
done for nothing, It would be no more
than fair for the same firm to sell tho
fiame for It, and an examination of
the samples and prices showed that
the figures asked wero very low. Tho
fiame did not h.ue to be paid for until
it was delivered with tho picture. A
deposit of one uollar as a guarantee of
good faith is all that was asked.
"Those who paid tho dollar have
heard nothing more about It, although
three weeks have elapsed."

HELMES ON TRIAL
FOR EMBEZZLEMENT
ALLEGATION IS THAT HE KEPI
INSURANCE MONEY.
His Dofonso Is That Ho Had No
Intention to Keep Monoy Duo
Toico Brothers, of Wilkes-Bnrro.
Was Unable to Collect Full Amount
of Some of tho Premiums on Insur
ance Ho Wrote, and Could Not Pay
General Agents Until Ho Received
Monoy Himself.
Curtls E. Holmes, a piomlnent citi
zen of Jormyn, was on trial befora
Judge Gunster ln court room No. 2
jcetorday on a charge ot embezzle
ment, preferred by Fred Telce, Jr., of
the firm of Telce Bi others, general
Insurance agents of Wllkes-Bnrro.
Holmes was engaged by Telce Brothers
to represent the Capital Flro Insuranco
company, of Concord, N. H., at Jor
myn and its Iclnlty. The agreement
under which he was emplojed pro
Idert that ho should make dally u
ports of buslnesfl done to Telce Broth
ers and at the end of each month re
mit ln full the amount of premiums
collected.
Heltnes neglected to do this tit the
end of October, nnd according to th
testimony offered yesterday Fred Tele?,
Jr., went to Jcrmyn to see him. Holmes
was not prepaid! to settle. Ho said
he had not been able to collect tho full
amount of the premiums on tho Insur
ance ho had wrlttsn, and would not be
nblo to pay the $200 ho was ln nn ears
until he did .so.
Telce told Helmes that it he into
Insurance on the ciedlt system ho did
It nt his own risk, for they had not
authorized him to do business lu that
way. He made a foimnl demand for
settlement In full and when Helmes
did not comply ho waa Indicted. At
the trial ot tho case yesterday Attor
ney Edward McGovcrn, of Wllkes
Barre, and Attorney F. R. Stark, of
Scranton, conducted the prosecution,
and Hon. John I'. Kelly and Attorney
Carey, of Jermn, the defence.
When the case opened Mr. Kelly
made a motion to quash the Indict
ment, but Judge Gunster tefused It,
and when tho commonwealth rested he
asked the court to Instruct the Jury to
find for the defendant for the teason
that tho commonwealth had not ehown
that tho Capital Fire Insuranco com
pany was authorized to do business ln
this state. This motion was also re
fused by the court. ,
In his defence Helmes stated that he
has not embezzled any moneje due to
Telce Biotheis. To compete with tho
other agents writing lire Insurance In
the lelnlty of Jormyn he was com-

of all the premiums and turned it oer

MR. TIMLIN FAVORS IT.
Makes a Strong Spoech Supporting
tho McCarrell Bill.
Yesterday's Philadelphia Inquirer
contained tho following report of the
speech made on Thursday In the house
of representatives by Hon. P. E. Tim
lin, of the Fourth district:
I camo here to do what Is right and
Just, and will bo carrying out tho wishes
of my constituents by voting for the pass
age of tho McCurrcll bill, regardless cf
uuy action that may bo taken by this
caucus. A similar bill was presented by a
former Democratic representative from
my county, ex-Senator M. 13. McDonald,
nnd another of llko character by another
of my predecessors, Hon. J. 1. Kelly,
who earnestly advocated tho passage of
tills legislation. I know, ns they knew,
that tho sentiment of tho community ln
which I llo Is In favor ot this bill. If
this Is a political measure, as Is Claimed
by tho opponents of the bill, I dcslro to
sny, that I agreo with them; Its origin
and birth was with tho Democratic party.
Former Senator Gordon was nmoug tho
early advocates of this bill, ns was ex
Senator Wallace and others who havo
figured In Democratic councils. At any
rate, tho Democratic members hero
should not bo influenced by tho followers
of snlto and hate, who nro back of tho
opposition of this bill: If these bolting
Republicans and tho others who want to
build a political organization at our ex
pense expect us to blindly follow thcln
thoy will find that they nro mistaken.
This bill is beneficial to tho laboring
classes who mnko up tho voting popula
tion of my district It Is a fnlr and just
measure, regardless of who may bo bene
fited by Its passage. The equity and Jus
tlco of tho mensuro should bo considered
aside from faction or political grounds.
Wo havo been misquoted and misrepre
sented in tho Wutiamaker press, and
have been used as tools by tho men re
sponsible for these report. I, for ore,
propose to oto on nil measures nr I deem
beBt, nnd in tho Interest of my constit
uents I shall vote for this bill.
