4 THE BROOKXYK DAILY EAGLE FRIDAY, JUKE 11, 1897. LATEST LONG ISLAND NEWS, Why Mr. Branson Resigned His Port Jefferson Charge. TROUBLE ABOUT A PIPE ORGAN. The Minister Collected the Money to Buy It, and When It Was Placed m the Church, Instead of Creating Harmony It Split the Congregation Into Factions and the Quarrel Has Aflected the Politics of the Village. (Special to the Eagle.) Port Jefferson. L. 1.. June 11 The Rev. William A. Bronson has tendered his resignation as pastor of the First Baptist Church here, to take effect June 27, although the pastoral year does not end until November next. This action was brought about hy an unpleasant state of affairs that originated when a new pipe organ was placed in the church, nearly two years ago, and former pastor, the Rev. H. M. Lowry, is, in a mea sure, held responsible for the trouble. It "was two weeks ago that the pastor read his resignation from the puipit, stating that it would take effect the last Sunday In July. Wille leaving the church he overheard one oi the sisters, who had not been friendly to ialrn, remark that it was to be regretted that the pulpit was not to be vacated in June Instead of July. Immediately the clerk of the ORGAN IN PORT JEFFERSON BAPTIST CHURCH. Which Caused the Resignation of the Pastor, the Rev. W. A. IJronHon. church was informed by Pastor Bronson that he would preach his last sermon on June 27. The only reference to the trouble in Mr. Bronson's letter of resignation occurs In the following paragraph: I regret u say that thfre sprang up early In this pastorate an opposition and jirejudice against the pastor by a small minority. The accusations are groundless. This has thrown the pastor Into a nervous condition anl at times almost unfitted him for the service required. The organ episode is told by one of the church members as follows: "Mr. Bronson became the pastor of the church nearly two years ago by the unanimous vote of the church. He did excellent work and was well liked hy everyone until the organ was purchased. That and the remarks that are attributed, to a visiting clergyman started the rumpus that ended in the pastor's resignation.. Mr. Bronson unaided by anyone, raised nearly' SI, 000 for a new organ, and at the meeting of the church it was - oted to purchase of F. B. Raynor, a resident of the village, the present organ for Sl.JlOO. "The organ was actually worth ?2,200, but Mr. Raynor made the price low. The organ was placed in the church and gave entire satisfaction. The Rev. H. M. Lowry, for seven years pastor' of this church and now pastor of the First Baptist Church of Rah way, N. J., came here to spend his summer vacation. He 6aw the organ and it did not meet with his approval. After his visit there was a split in the church. One side favored the organ and the pastor and the other opposed both. tfYom that time there was trouble and the breach has continued to widen and has culminated in the pastor's resignation." The Rev. Mr. Bron.sun when seen had this to eay: "I have nothing to say about any member of my church or congregation. I love them all. I have always endeavored to do my duty in all places and at all times, but it appears that I have failed to please all. I have done nothing that I regret. I expect to remain here with my family until fall. I am certain that I said nothing in the Presbyterian Church that coukl offend anyone." A church member wno is opposed to the pastor says: "The trouble with Mr. Bronson is tha't he talks too much. The church io running down and a number of members do not attend services there now because they do not like his preaching." A report was current to - day that after Mr. Bronson leaved the church the Rev. Dr. Lnvry will be asked to act as a supply and later a call would be extended to him. This report was emphatically denied by a trustee of the church. A person closely identified with the church had this to say about the church and the pastor: "It is to be regretrod that the church is divided Into two factions and all on account of an organ. Because Mr. Lowry still has some friends in the church it is no reason why the members should de - sort their pastor. There has been much talk of closing the .church, but I do not think this result will follow. Mr. Bronson, I understand, has wealthy relatives and will prcbably engage in the manufacture of a patent medicine." The latest phase of the case Is that the ,rcw has got outside of the ohurdi and into the local politics of the village and some of Mr. Bronson's friends say they will prcbably make a fight against George P. Schuyler, the treasurer of the church and one of the pastor's chief opponents, to proven: him from securing the appointment as postmaster f;r this place, which ho very much desires. A report is also in circulation that Mrs. S.tx - ton, who has made a most capable organist, will be asked to resign. If this is true, new developments may be looked for. OYSTER BAY DEMOCRATS. Chairman McAlester's Trial Results in the Disbnnding of the Town Committee. Oyster Bay, L, I., June 11 The troubles of Ithe Democratic Town Committee of the town of Oyster Bay, which have been increasing lor some time, fanned by disaffected members of the committee, politicians and individual voters, reached a climax at a meeting held Wednesday evening at Stroppel's Hotel, Glen Cove. when the committee was disbanded The meeting was called to hear the report of Auugst Swimson of Sea Cliff, John H. Kewhoff of Glen Cove, and James Long of Oyster Bay, inemtiers from the Thirteenth, Ninth and Fifth districts respectively, who were appointed last month as an investigating committee to inquire - Into the charges of treason to the party preferred against Chairman H. McAlester by his district committee. The committee reported that the charges were proven unfounded and they were dismissed by the town committee. Joseph Steinert, chairman of the committee land boss of the Democratic town politics, then created a sensation by introducing a resolution to disband the town comm:t:ee, Te - enroil the Democratic voters as per order of the county central committee and elect new district ofllcers and committee delegates at district primaries, to be held Juno 21. This miscarried.

I., June 11 The election held yesterday, upon the question of Incorporating the village of Rockaway Beach, resulted In the resolution in favor of Incorporation, being passed by a vote of 117 to 8.

Dazzling Lights and Gayly Deoorated Booths Serve to Attract the Visitor at Night Soenss in the Old Dutch Inn. Autograph Works for Sale Well Known Society Women Assisting in the Different Departments. Passengers in the Flatbush avenue cars wore surprised and brought to their feet in a hurry by a brilliant sight last night when they reached the Midwood Club grounds. Thousands of colored lanterns, wonderfully illuminated, transparent and fairy - like structures, and twinkling lamps of every hue and shape, transformed the grounds into such a place as Titanla might have longed for or created. Indeed, the fair in aid of the Brooklyn Home for Consumptives is no ordinary one and a glimpse at the fantastic booths and the myriad lights when caught from the cars is alone worth the trip. The beautiful lawn of the club, famous in itself, is made more beautiful by lines of fairy lamps, and within a score or more of booths are daintily dressed women and pretty girls who waylay prospective customers. Even last night when the moon was constantly losti behind gloomy clouds, and a dismal mist made everything damp, the effect was pretty, though the visitors were comparatively few. First and most important of all is the old Dutch kitchen Inside the club house. To truly appreciate this clever conception the visitor must know that every detail Is historically perfect. Allen B. Doggett, the artist and illustrator, who spent several years in Holland, gaining the inspiration for the pictures that have made him noted, personally supervised the furnishing and fitting of this Holland Inn and is himself on hand in the curious yet taking costume of the Hollander. When first the stranger enters the kitchen the bevy of beautiful girls in becoming peasant costumes takes his attention and ho becomes particularly absorbed In the work of those damsels who are engaged In spinning on old fashioned wheels propelled by wooden - shod feet. After a time the room itself, with its walls of rough and weather - stained boards, its rafter supported roof and rude fireplace with the strangely contrasting tiles and great iron fire pot, claims his attention. It is then the spectator realizes the fact that he is indeed in a Dutch inn and small articles attract him. He sees the strings of onions, the hams and dried fish hanging from above, the queer match safe, just from Holland, the cradle on its pedestal and the odd bed hid away in a cupboard - like lnclosure. He learns that a queer little stool in front of him is really a foot warmer and under it is a receptacle for the burning peat. Pots and pans, candlesticks, fine old blue china and quaint utensils of all kinds are shown to him and finally he notices hanging from the rafters a model full rigged ship and the artist tells him that everywhere in Holland these models hang, several in the cathedralB of the canal country. It would need a book to describe the intensely interesting details of this unique exhibition which should particularly appeal to the Flatbush people, descendants as they are of the old Dutch families. Indeed, most of the furniture and fittings displayed are heirlooms and treasured as such by the contributors. Outside, viewed from the porch of the club house, the full beauty of the scene impresses the newcomer. Shannon's Twenty - third Regiment band is playing dance music and on the lawn amid the many lights prettily costumed girls are dancing with Dutch burgomasters and everything is fascinating and new. Of course there ere fish ponds, fortune tellers, flower girls, shooting galleries and other old friends of the charity fairs, but somehow everyone has a new face and a new air in this fair. It is absolutely and charmingly original and would deserve patronage even without its worthy cause. Last night the dampness and unnatural June weather forbade the wearing of muslins and light dresses, yet the scene did not appear to suffer and later on in the evening the visitors became more numerous. Not the least of the exhibits was the marble bust of Mrs. Harriet Beecher Stowe in the author's corner. A sale of autograph copies of books by celebrated authors brought a crowd of wise looking bespectacled men and women to the room where the corner is. The fair will remain open this afternoon and evening, to - morrow afternoon and close Saturday night. Excellent musical programmes by the orchestra have been arranged. Saturday, children's day, will have Punch and Judy shows, conjuror's tricks and amusing novelties. The committee in charge comprises: Mrs. W. R. Adams, chairman; Mrs. Frank Reynolds, Mrs. A. J.

No Less Atrocious Now Than in the Last War. To tihe BdKor of the Brooklyn Eagle: You 'have lately published some edltorlala on the suljjeot of Cuhan netws, in which you seem to be, or else, like our late President, profess to be, utterly Ignorant of facts. In lat night's issue you discredit the report of an attack on a Cuban hospital and the murder of all. Including nurses and doctors, and naively call for proofs. Proofs of such things, like the Ruiz murder, are not easily obtained, for the simple reason that witfaln Spanish lines no one will dare openly speak of such doings, for fear of death or, worse yet, the penal colonies. You must know Vh&t Weyler has edlcted 'that any one who speaks disparagingly of Spain or Ks army is an enemy of Spain and treated as such. But why should the report be untrue? I this war less cruel tlhan the last? How many times was this very thing done between 1868 and 1878? Some of my relatives were murdered in this very way! And has that bloodthirsty spirit that murdered six noya under 16 years of ago and put tfhlrty - tiwo others In chain gang for months for he terrible (?) crime of defacing a gias3 in the cemetery any less advocates In Cuba now than then? But why seek proofs when you liave ttiem at hand? Has not General Weyler given orders that all who give medicines or medical treatment to the insurgents shall he treated as enemies of Spain? Does the Spanish Hed Cross Society give any aid to Cubans? Bosh! The fact of the matter i3 that we do not want to believe such doings, because if we did we could not find any excuse Tor our apatihy in doing nothing to stop such crimes at our doors. I am surprised traat a newspaper that, like the Eagle, has been so courageous and plain spoken in other good causes, should publish such edir torlals as that of yesterday, CUBAN TJ. S. CITIZEN SINCE 1868. Brooklyn, June 9, 1897. PLANTATION" MELODIES. An entertainment was given last evening at the Second Baptist Church - of Flatbush, on Lefferts street, by the Southern Jubilee Concert Company of South Carolina, under the direction of Professor W. W. Handley. The programme consisted of plantation melodies, comic solos and recitations, ventriloquism and phonography. The affair was largely attended. The committee of arrangements was: Thomas L. Moore, William Thompson, Mrs. N. Crump, Mrs. I. Thompson, Miss E. Patterson, Miss M. Butler, Miss L. Barnett and Miss A. Smith. Refreshments were served at the close of the programme. CHARGED WITH SWINDLING. Arthur Butcher of 133 Third avenue. New York, and George F. Williams of 24 East Twenty - first street, New York, who are accused of swindling Edward M. Freeburger of Parkville out of $39, in a pool parlor at Coney Island, were held In $500 ball each this morning by Judge Nostrand for examination on June $16. PROFESSOR ROBERTS' LECTURE. Professor Timothy H. Roberts delivered a lecture last evening in the Flr3t Baptist Church of Flatbush, corner of Lenox road and Nostrand avenue, on the "National Capitol." The lecture was Hlustrated with stereopticon views. The proceeds were for the benefit of the church. FLATBUSH NOTES. Mrs. Henry B. Davenport of Ocean avenue returned on Wednesday from a visit to Connecticut. The Rev. Dr. Cornelius L. Wells, pastor of the Dutch Reformed Church of Flatbush, and his wife have returned from Asbury Park. REAL ESTATE MARKET. There seems to be a good deal of dissatisfaction over the assessment lists issued by the Board of Assessors, on the ground that the board has rated property far in excess of what it can be sold for in the market. One real estate broker wants to know whether the board has increased the rating to 100 per cent., or if it really has placed the assessments on the 70 per cent, basis. As a reason for this query, ho referred to a transaction which came under his notice. A house on South Portland avenue was sold a short while ago for $7,000. This house is now in the market for $8,500, and yet the Board of Assessors has placed its assessed valuation at $9,000, which, it is claimed, represents 75 cent, of its actual value. Another house on Gates avenue, which sold recently for $6,200, has been assessed at $7,200. These, it Is said, are only a few of similar cases, but are enough, in the mind of the dealer, to show the injustice of the present assessment roll. The result of the sale on Tuesday of the property in the Twenty - sixth Ward belonging to the estate of Simon Rapalje, deceased, was a big success,, as the sum of $31,500 was realized, an average of about $1,300 an acre. Much satisfaction is expressed by the executors of the estate for the reason that this was about $6,000 In excess of an offer made for the property at a private sale. Judicial Sales.
