by the Elks' quintettp.comprising John

Deputy Detwiler formerlly accepted
the lodge in behalf of the grand lodge,
and followed that with a short speech
iu which he declared, with extraordin
ary emphasis, that he had never in all
his travels witnessed a lodge room
which equaled the ono iu Scrantou.
Hon. 1'. P. Smith was then intro

aspect, the civilization which the heathen
world attained was in no wise beneath
our own except as to mechanical invention
and the mastery of natural forces, while in
literature and art it rose to an eminence
which we today despair of reaching. Hut
the civilization developed through the
later centuries was differentiated from that
of heathenism by the subtle and slowly
permeating; forces of charity, justice,
brotherly love and fidelity divine forces
working in human nature and developing
nobler characteristics in the structure and
tendencies of society. Already these lorces
have won much for humauity and their
conquests over the evils that beset man are
steadily extending. They operate for the
common good. They suffer no man to live
to himself nlone, or to seek bis own good
through evil to another. For many con
turios they have been molding socinl aud
political institn Hons, warring against all
forms of oppression and evil, promoting all
things that make for human brotherhood
and equality and for the elevation of man.
With tho progress of tho ages they as
sert themselves more ami more visibly,
with an influence growing ever stronger
and broader, iu forms comprehending all
human interests. Ile-v move hand iu

the achievements of the mind work for
the cause of humanity. They are fust be

THK 01'ENINU RFMARKSJ.
Through tho courte.-iv of the nutmban nt
this lodge the pleasant dutv devolves upon
me to extend a friendly greeting and cor
dial welcome to all visitors who havo
honored us with their presence upon this
cheerful and auspicious occasion. Our
highest aim. fondest hope and most earn
est desire tonight is to so favorably im
press you that you may conclude to revisit
us, hold u.-i iu kind remembrance nnd to
regard us as capable of givin 1 a true inter
pretation to tlio meaning of the grandest
principles ever inculcated for the, guidance
of humanity, namely, charity, justice,
brotherly lovo and fidelity. If we succeed
in this design wo will fee that
our purchase of (his magnidcent edifice,
embellishing it with the beauties of art
and dedicating it to the sincere brother
hood of man, have not been in vain. We
want you to cheerfully partake of our hos
pitality; enjoy our compaulonship aud un
reservedly enter into the pleasures of the
eveniug. I might weary you w ith a recital
of our struggles and triumphs and inci
dentally say tnat our lodge is only five
years old; that its membership runs into
the hundreds, and includes nearly all the
local prominent men iu the various walks
of life, but 1 will In guilty of nohuch un
pardonable offence I will leave the com
mission of that misdemeanor to our trutu
ful historian nnd the Inflicting it
upon au indulgent fraternity to the
Animal Keglster. We havo looked
rorward to this event with golden
anticipation. We hoped to make uew and
pleasant acquaintances and content old
friendships. We feel a realization of our
fondest expectations. While you are all
equally welcome, yet wo trust that speclnl
reference to our Wilkes-Brre friends may
not be considered Inappropriate. They are
members or our mother lodge, and citizens
of our mother county. There are two
happy mother's down there because thoir
offspring havo each outgrown them. They
have true motherly instinct and are proud
of their children when they do well, win
famoand crow big, Wo havo been, how
ever, somewhat neglectful of our matern
ity. We should have visited homo oftoner
nnd returned thanks for past kindnesses,
Bnt we have been too busy growing. Tins
happy gathering wil' make us morn
thoughtful, r.ut no one say that tho old
ladies are not weeping because of our
prolonged absence, for we beg for a re
union for the sake of old acmiaintaiice.and
tho good that it can do.
Again, gentlemen, I offer you the heart
felt welcome of our lodge, and earnestly
lequest you to join us in making this occa
sion memorable in theauuals of friendship
and glorious in tho world of F.lkdom.
