New York, Sept. 27.On several oc casions Recorder Hyman Lazarus of Bayonne has compelled fathers to spank their wayward boys in open court. Yesterday for the first time in New Jersey, a girl was soundly whipped in court by direction of Re corder Lazarus. The girl was Katie Kantor, nine years old, and the whip ping was done by her father with a cat-'o-nine-tails. After the operation, which was very painful to the child, was over, she promised her father and the court never to lie or steal again. Katie was arraigned with Mary Dwyer, who lives in the same house with her and is one year older. They were ar rested for stealing eggs and groceries from several stores. Their depreda tions had been going on for months and the police had hunted for small boys before they got a clew which led to the discovery of the two girls. PRIEST SHORT IN ACCOUNTS. Speculated in Mining Stocks With the Money Belonging to the Church. Denver, Sept. 27.The News says Fther Callahan, the pastor of the ca thedral parish and in charge of tie finances of the- parish and for the building of the new cathedral, is short in his accounts to the amount of some thing like $20,000. The entire amount of the cathedral fund, $52,000. has been invested in mining stocks by Father Callahan, according to the News, and at least half of the total sum has been lost through depression of the stocks. There is no suspicion that Father Callahan has profited per sonally from the affair. It is believed that he began the speculation to iri crease the cathedral fund, and after learning that he was losing, has grad ually invested the entire sum in order to make good. KILLED BY NATIVES.
