WHOSE BaBY?
intcrcstin Dcvelopment In
Pawlet Cruelty Casc.
CAUSED BY CHURCH WAR
Latr Fads Indicate That There
Arc Two Sides To the Case
Aainst Mclntyre.
Tbe Banner and Hofortnor last week
publishod in advanoeof any other
paper the story of the arrest of Rev
Daniel Mclntjro of Pawlet or alleged
cruelty and tnaltreatinfr a clilld be
tween threo and four years of age.
To get more full particulars of tho
case a represontatlvo of this' paper in
the evcning called up states attorney
IL Preston of Fair Ilaven and
from hlm learned particulars as to
wbere tbe child was taken when it went
from Pawlet to Boston, wber it was
born and some otliere.
The entire story as far as could bo
learned was sent to tbe Boston Hcrald
by lts correspondent here. That paper
made investigations with tlio result
that the following story appoared in
it Friday afternoon:
Back of the arrest of the Rev Daniel
Mclntyre, Wednesday by States At
torney Preston on the coraplaint of
Humane Olllcer W. W. Tower for Ui
alleged abuso of a 3-year old chlld,
lies a pathetic story of humane inter
st. The little one cauw into the world
without a birthright. She was born
in a privato lyinfr-in hospital at 480
Brookline avenue. Longwood, , near
Boston, April 1900. Provious to
her birth a young, attractive woman
visited tho hospital and made ar
rangements 'vith Dr Laura Ilunter,
who conducts the institutlon, for treat
ment. Upon the books of Dr Ilunter
the mother's nnrao was given as Mary
Louiso Holland of Boston, and' that
of the father as Wright Mclntyre, pro
fession, a tcacher, born in Scotland.
Apart fronrthe entry made on tho
book Dr Hunter knew nothing of the
father. She had never seon him at the
hospital, but she said that while she
was absqnt one day, soon after the
chlld was born, aman askod to see the
little one, and havlng beeu escorted to
the crib whore the child lay, bent prer
tho cradlo and kissed her.
Dr Hunter states that she had under
stood that after the birth of the child
the tnan and woman niarrlod; She fur
thor said that she was told that the
raother of the child was a frlend of tho
wlfoof tho Pawlet minister, and it was
by reason of the friendship existing
between the two women that tho little
goldenhaired glrl, after it became a
year old, was taken from the Brook
line avenue hospital to Vermont. Dr
Hunter said that the Rev Mr Mclntyre
had never expressed a dcslre to adopt
the little one, but she (Dr Hunter) felt
contcjit that the baby was in proper
handa.
"Why didn't the mother of the child
takj her baby?" was asked, "She
would not keep it becauso of its birth,"
roplied the doctor. "Frequently she
called at my placo here, and would'
take the little one for a time and then
return U, but much of tho time the dear
little, glrl elther remalned here or with
my daughter, who was equally fond of
her."
"Why, I thought so much of her
that I gave hcr my own 'nutno, and
hero sho ls called Mary Franles Hun
ter. She calls me 'granny.' "
" Whero Is the child now?" as ask
ed. "With Mr and Mrs Georgo Roso, a
most estimable famlly lllng in
SpringSeld, Mass. Ho is a c'ondu'c
tor on the Boston & Albany rairoad,
a gbod mdn, apd tils' wife is all'i tbat
could bedesired to lookafter the vell
being of such a little one."
"Have Mr and Mrs Rose adorited
her?"
"Well. nractically. The papfcrs
haven't passed yet, but thoy will sopn
be signed."
"Dld the child show any marks,
ill treatment when it was returned
vou by the Rev Mclntyre sev
weeks ago?"
"Absolutely none. ' She
tronir nnd hoalthy asJa
"Is thero any relationship botween
tho fnthor of tho chtld and the minister,
they both havlng tbe sumo lastname?"
she was asked.
"1 don't believo that thoro is."
A representative of this paper intor
vlowed Mr Mclntyre Saturday who
stuted emphatksally that ho never
heard of Wright Mclntyre or Miss
Mary Louiso Holland boforo. He al
so said that ho did not knowaqy Mary
Prances Holland but when asked If
that was not the nnme of tho child he
said he u1whv3 'knew it as Frances
Holland.
He would say notbing about the
charges agalnst him only that he ex
HJcted to pro"vo hls innocence. Ho
would give no reason why he went and
got tho child from Dr Hunters last
Octobcr, 1001, orNwhv he took it back
thero when he learned that tho charges
of maltreating were to be investigated.
As to rnmors that hls wifo had left
him, he said they were ontirely falso.
She stood by him and would. Thero
had never been any difforoncos between.
them, and he thought the members of
the church would stahd -by him also.
He conductcd the regular services
Sunday.
In Pawlet there are two churches,
the Congrcgational and the Mothodist.
Some months ago thero was much talk
of uniting the two churches and at a
joint meetlng thoy came withln threo
votes of untting undcr 'the Mothodlst
pastor.
From that a church war has grown
up and Mr Mclntyfo's Irlends allege
that persecution of him and falsehoods
about him have rcsulted.
Rev Mr Stona, father of Mrs A. P.
Childs was pastor of tho Congregat
ional church at Pawlet somo. .10 years
ago and in the church is a stained
glass.wlndow in his memory.
