Duncan F. Turner, alias McNeil, the Mason whose arrest was caused by Secretary Charles F. Bturm of the local Masonic Relief Board on Saturday. the details of Which were nublished ex clusively in The Sunday Courier-Record, was sent to-tne penitentiary ror sixty days by justice jwurpny yesterday morn inc. .1 Turner, on being summoned from his cell in the Pearl Street Station to face Justice! Murphy; in the sunrise court, protested vigorously; against being disturbed at such an unseasonable hour, saying that his customary time of arising was 8:30 o'clock.

Forrestel apologized ironically for the! rudeness of the turnkey in dis turbing Mr. slumbers, but ex plained, that the rules of the I'olice De partment made such action necessary. Before the Justice. Owing to the illness of one of the other justices, Mr. Murphy was" to visit a few extra stations yesterday morning, and this caused him to be two hours late in reaching No.

3 Station. Turner await ed his arrival with nervous anxiety. He could not remain still, but paced about his cell like a caged animal. He denounced Secretary Sturm in scathing terms and cursed the Masons generally, blaming them for what he termed the outrageous manper in which he was being treated. When the prisoner did face Justice urpby he put on a bold front and assumed a rather defiant air.

"What crime am I charged with, should like to lie thundered the shrewd swindler, a look of indigna tion flashing from his eyes. "I have beeu arrested and thrown into a prison cell for no cause whatever, and I would like to know the meaning of it all." Kelt Insulted. "Were you' never in a prison cell before?" asked the Justice. "Sir! you insult me by propounding such an interrogation to me, came the a 1 indignant repij. "I am unaccustomed to such usage, and I want you to understand that when I regain my liberty I shall at once take steps towards' securing retribution." Capt.

Forrestel then read the Masonic warning letter, which had been given to him by Secretary Sturm. The document contained Turner's name with an accurate description of him. and an account of his fraudulent operations among mem bers of the Masonic fraternity rsriar ITill. N. Toronto, and Cleveland.

The document showed that Turner had served sixty days in the Cleveland Workhouse for obtaining money from Masons In that city by fraudulent pretenses. Brazen Effrontery. Ih the face of this convincing evidence Turner denied that he had ever been in the cities nnmei, and declared the allegations contained 'i the warning letter were a pack of lies, andentirely without foundation. i Justice Murnhy was amazed at the bare-faced effrontery of the man, and after passing sentence upon him declared that he was the I Greatest liar with whom he had come in contact during his career ns a dispenser of justice in me morning courts. VICTOR HERBERT.

i Fine Concert Given by Hia 23d. Regi ment Band. There was not a large attendance at the concert given by Victor Herbert and his 22d! Regiment Band in Music Hall last night. But! what the audience lack ed in point of numbers waa made up in the plenitude of its appreciation. Each selection was enthusiastically applauded, and the one or more encores by which the programme numbers were supplemented, afforded the audience an opportunity to hear the greater part or the conductor's charming opera, "The Sere nade." In box were W.

H. McDonald of the Bostonians, and a party of friends. 1 From his evident enjoyment of the excerpts, one would hardly suspect the important ractor tnat ne naa oeen in causing its success and fame. The programme contained l'ttle that mitrht anneal to popular taste. There was ino attempt at humoresque, and many of the compositions were familiar to those present through the concerts of the Buffalo Orchestra.

The band, itself, is more fully equipped and better appointed than when it last appeared in Buffalo. Herbert's power' and command as its leader nre excellently displayed in the perfection to Which It is trained. The ensemble numbers were the processional march from Goldmark's "Queen of the overture; from a group of short selections by Lacombe, Kelley and Sullivan; part of the ballet suite from Massenet's "Le an arrangement of iSchumann's the Dvoik "Slavic Dance" and a fantasle from "The Serenade." The most delightful fes-tures, however, Were Herbert's two 'cello solos, with harp accompaniment. In the hands of this artist, the instrument acquires the agile grace of the violin, without losing the depth of charm and emotion which are its distinctive characteristics. His programme numbers were a Chopin nocturne and the Schubert the latter was played with flute obligato, which 'added greatly to the effectiveness.

As encores he gave the "Fopper Scherzo" and "Dreamland," from "The Wizard of the Nile' Miss Marie Donavin, the soprano soloist, sang the aria, "Linda di Chamou- nix." by Uonizetti; "The Swallows," by Cowan, and "With My Guitar," by Wright.i Her voice Is clear and flexible, and her trills and runs are delightfully limpid and tuneful. In addition to her Sirogramme numbers she sang "Love is a "'lower' by Dix, and "Cupid and from "The Serenade." The harpist, Otto Hagedorn, was not heard In any solo work, but as an ac- companist and in the lenprthy cadenza of the 'VMignpn" overture, he proved hia claim as a musician of exceptional ability, iii his particular department of the art. i Figs and fine fruits complete jfeL been stock has trength- ened.The market is closely watched and the finest we see is most promptly secured.

HER WORK FOR HUMANITY For Nearly Half a Century This Saintly Woman Labored for the Poor and Friendless. Death invaded the St. Vincent Orphan Asylum at Alain ant! luley streets, Saturday night, and ended the beautiful life of the good Sister jModesta Hill, aged 67 years. It closed a life rich in noble deeds and as pure as the rose that shed its fra grance over the wer last night. The life of Sister Modesta was donated to the poor of Buffalo.

It was completely given over to the cause of sweet char ity. Uhonsands of waifs xn this fair city felt the kindly touch of her hands, and hundreds of men and women who are happy in their homes today owe it all to the good sister, whose body awaits the grave in Holy Cross Cemetery. For nearly half a century Sister Mo desta labored in Buffalo. She traversed the country, stopping at farmhouses to nsk for potatoes and other vegetables; she went from house to house in the city, collecting cast-off garments, which were cleansed and made into suit for poor boys and girls. Her hands were never idle.

There was always a smile on her kindly face. It was there even when death came, and it wih not be effaced by the coffin lid. Sister Modesta's Career. Sister Modesta was bora in Bad. Ger- mnny.

At the age of 2 years she came with her parents to, the United States. When 20 years old she entered the Community of the Sisters of Charity, at Em- mittsburg. Md. After two years there she came to Buffalo, entering the St. Vin cent Female Orphan Asylum, which was then on and which was in its infancy.

At that time the institution was not over three years old. After entering upon her work in Buf falo, Sister Mout-sta was as a ministering angel to the worthy poor. After days of work in collecting garments, she would derote her time to the task of patching and cutting them to make them fit the children who were badly in need of clothing. No other work pleased her so Well as that which gave clothing to some poor waif, and sent a warm wave tnrougn nis body. Ministered to the Distressed.

When not thus engaged, she was visiting the sick and distressed. Her hands made soft the pillow of many a dying person. She made it her mission to find sick persons who 'needed her services. Hundreds of people who have felt the touch of her hands, heard her kindly voice, and have been benefited by her charitable ministrations, will monrn hec aeath. If every good deed perrormed t.y her adds a star to her crown, it will be ablaze with them.

The Sister Superior, who was seen at the asylum last night, said that Sister Modesta's entire life had been wholly devoted to relieving the distress of the poor. A Loving Tribute. "Men, women and children all over Buffalo loved her for what she had-done for them," said the sister. "I doubt if there will ever be another like her in this city. She was always looking for sonte pi ace to do good.

Iwvery day persons who loved her for the kindness sne had shown them came here-to see her. They loved her dearly. day before she died she aid that she expected her friends would want to bring llowers to place on her casket. She told me not to let them do it. Instead, she said they should give their money to help clothe nnd feed the poor." The funeral of the deceased sister will be held from St.

Joseph's Cathedral at 10 o'clock tomorrow morning. High mass will be celebrated, after which the remains will be buried in the Limestone Hill Cemetery. CHARTER CHANGES. Republicans Plan Important Action at Albany. Single-Headed Commission for the Department of Public Worka Conference This Week.

A meeting, the exact time or place of which has not as yet been definitely decided, will be held this week ly prominent Republicans, including the Republican memlwra of the legislative delegation from Erie Couuty. The purpose of the meeting will be, it is Faid, to consider the advisability and feasibility of introducing certain bills in the Legislature, amending the city charter. Among other proposed measures which will receive consideration, are those affecting the Department of Public Works and the of the Peace, more tn-miliarly known as the Morning Justices. There seems to be quite a sentiment among Republican politicians in favor of a single-headed commission for the Department of Works. Several other proposed amendments to the charter, which would bo far-reaching in their effect, are-to be talked over, and an effort will be 'made to arrive at an understanding as to whnt legislation is to be favored by the Republican Senators and from this county at Albany during the coming session.

TO BE CALLED ST. PAUL'S. Small but Active Congregation The Old Cbnrcli One or the Earliest in Erie County. Less than two years aeo the members of the Catholic church residing just be yond the city line in the hustling suburb of Kenmore became tired of worshiping in the little etoi- church which has done service for over half a century, and de cided upon building a more modern, more commodious and more easily reacntd sanctuary. The old church, which is about sixty by forty feet on the ground, and lacks the accommodations of the ordinary country church, is at least half a mile from village, and is difficult of access.

Originally it was built of logs, and it has the honor of being the second oldest church in the vicinity, St. Louis' Church of this city alone antedating it. Hot Numerous but Knterpri The congregation is not a large one. scarcely exceeding half a hundred, but it is an enterprising one, and the idea of building a new structure, once born, was not allowed to ale.

P. Connery, V. assisted by the Rev. John J. Suenhan, chancellor.

There was a large attendance from Buffalo. Tonawanda and vicinity. The sermon was preached by the Rev. Father Sheahan. He cited the work done in the past by the little congregation of faithful worshipers, and the efforts they had made to bring about the erection of the new church.

He urged them to still further work, and predicted that the neat edifice now assured, would, in time, give place to a more pretentious structure, which would compare favorably with those erected in more prosperous par ishes. Father Zurcher was present, and extended his congratulations and his best wishes for success. The new church, which will be known as fct. Paul's, faces jon Delaware Avenue nearly opposite Kenmore school, and, when completed will cost about $7,000. It will be an ornament to the village About $3,000 hijs already been contributed towards its erection, a'od, while the burden of its construction rests on a very fewrt the Board of Trustees, of which George Besch is chairman, anticipates no serious difficulty in meeting the call.

It Is Causing the Leaders a Heap or Worry Chairmanship of the General Committee. Eren the joyous Cornell students were not more active yesterday than the politicians hunting for "influence" to get them into nice, comfortable berths paring good salaries and calling for little exertion.

The usual Sunday silence at Democratic headquarters was rudely disturbed by a horde of anxious men who spent the afternoon there, smoking more or less bad cigars, and making frequent inquiries as to the "whereabouts of the men who are prominent in Democratic In the afternoon, a few of the leaders gathered in the otBce of William II.

A messenger was dispatched for John Hagan, who was defeated for Councilman at the recent election by Henry C. Steul. the Republican candidate. As Mr. Steal's plurality was very small, being tinder 200, there has been some talk of contesting the election.

This Mr. Hagan is anxious to do The matter was discussed in all its aspects by thse who participated in the conference, but it was iiot fully determined if a contest should be instituted. The question of patronage, which grievously worrying the who claim to be the party leaders, was also gtrtie over, but the more it was talked about, the more unpleasant appeared the tanple. An effort will be made before Tuesday night, when the Jleneral Committee eiet'tn. to reason with some of the coin- mil i'men and persuade them not to put in a claim for every office in sight.

It is said the Mate which has been made for Mr. Cuddeback is not in accord with the idea of that gentleman, and that some appointments which have been regarded as sure, are still in the air and likely to stay there. If this is so, it may be regarded as a significant political indication of how Democratic politics are shaping. STORM SIGNALS UP. Gales and Cold Weather Are Promised -for Buffalo.

S. Rowland. "Thoughts suggested by the wreck of the Steamer Idaho," was the subject of the sermon last night, by the Rev. Dr. Joseph K.

Mason at the Church of the Messiah, on North Street. After briefly telling the story of the wreck as it appeared in the daily he said "We have read the tales of sorrow and suffering as told by those two men who were saved by the captain of another boat, and then the busy affairs, the joys and sorrows of our own life, have made us forget the story. But in some homes they cannot forget it, and in those homes the sorrow and the gloom hang over them. I Between Life and Death. 'It is better for ns to go to a house of mourning than of fensting to learn the! lessou in this.

Contrast this disaster! with the comfort and security enjoyed by fhose, who read of this sad Could it be possible that while we were resting calmly In our homes, out on the great inland sea this great struggle between life and death- was occurring? How it brings to our minds the tragic side of our life, and reminds us that this event is like a mirror, held up to nature, revealing tne fact that even while some rejoice, others must weep and suffer." According to the speaker, the world is better to live in than it ever was before. It is being say edtrom past conditions of narnarism, despotism, anu ignorance. While these results are tine to Divine Providence, they are done through human instrumentality, moved by the spirit of tiod. It is necessary to know or trnraan suffering, because the perfect state of so ciety is not to be realized until each man shall realize his brother's sorrow, and shall, according to his own power, and in his own place, do all he can to alleviate iu should realize that not only one ship has gone down on the sea, but that many another is siukinc, and is calling on us for help. Continuing he said: Sublime autl Humane Deed.

Another more cheering thought sug gested by the-'wreck is that the seamen clung to the mast and looked out on the waste of water with a look that must have been more eloquent than many words in the Divine siirht. Thetr prayer was for help, and help came. More dramatic than a thrilling story is the account of the rescue. How tender the pity, how brave the hearts, how intelligent and capable the noble men, who, with great peril and difficulty, achieved that sublime and humane act. All honor to the brave Capr.

Root and his crew. Iney are heroes, and as long as we remember this sad event, as long as stories of bravery on Lake tine shall be told, will men recouut and praise their worthy deed. 'Heroes are not all in books, nor are the saints all in the past. Iro not think meanly of any man, for often tn unexpected places they who s-ere thought commonplace may show something of the greatness of martyrs and saints. The men of today are as brave ana as true as any that ever lived uixm earth.

We are also tautrht bv this the fraliitv of life. which should not nil us with gioom, but teach us to live noble and useful Hses, filling our time with great ana beautiful tasks of helpfulness. Mr. Rowland's Sermon. Before a large congregation, at Asbury M.

E. Church, the pastor, the Rev. F. S. Itowlond, last night, gave a very fruitful sermon on the subject, "Shipwreck," suggested by the disaster of last Saturday.

The text chosen was from Timothy, I. 19. "Some have made shipwreck." Beginning, the pastor eaid: "Paul, though not by profession a seaman, yet was no novice on the great deep, for he said, "Thrice did I suffer shipwreck, a day and a nignt was I on the The experience of Taul as narrated in the Acts of the Apostles, recalls to our minda the story of the wreck of the Idaho, a week ago. "The tale of the wreck was then graph ically told, but he said that sad as this story was, there was more profound and pathetic sadness in the story only too often told of the shipwreck of the human soul. "Life is a boundless sea upon which millions of souls set sail every year.

Storms are aurc to come to all, for life is no yachting excursion. Some weather the gales, and come safe into port, but there are many whd can not breast the waves, and become wrecked. Wrecks of vessels are due to many different causes, and so too there are many things which cause the wreck of the aoul. Vicious habits are the cause of the wrecking of many lives and homes. Shipwrecked Souls.

"In the United States there are sixty thousand people who are losing their souls by drink. There are other habits which people follow that will cause a wreck. Habits are hard to overcome, ami many try earnestly to do so, but the foree around them are too strong to be conquered. Like the Idaho, they are in the trough of the sea, and do their best they can not get out. As the sailors did on that night, they throw put the anchors, but they fail to catch and drag.

They are at the mercy of the waves, and after unsuccessfully fighting awhile, they give up all hope, and the soul is lost. "Unbelief Is another cause of the shipwreck of the soul. Unless there is belief there can be no salvation, and many refuse to accept this chance of life. While many shipwrecks are caused by unbelief, many more are due to neglect. Unbelief and atheism are responsible for tne wreck of many souls, but neglect is the.

ruination of our brothers, "All hope is not gone from the sailor, even though his ship is lost. Ships always keep a lookout for other ships in distress during a storm, and the shipwrecked sailor has faith that he may yet be saved. He keeps a careful watch for assistance, and his joy knows no bounds when he sees help drawing near to huu. When the ship which has discovered the wrecKea man gets neap to mm, a lifeboat is sent out to take him from the wreck. The Mariposa came to the two men on tne wrecKea Xdano, ana tne nlen availed themselves gladly of the chance for rescue, for it would have been a foolhardy act to have remained on the wreck, and let the boat go away without them.

Yet many men are doing this today. They are wrecked and are neglecting the opportunity to be saved." DR. G. A. ALLEN DEAD.
