GREAT ENDEAVOR CONVENTION,
Rev. George Guild Gives a Graphic
Description of the Great Cleve
The Endeavor rally nt tho Presby
terian church last evening was a great
success, the spacious edition being
crowded. Th-f choir gave an excellent
rendition of Professor Dries' quar
tette. "Tho Radiant Morn," after
which Charles Chandler, cue of the
convention delegatos, read a paper on
the work in general followed iiy Miss
Cora M. Decker, who read a very in
teresting paper on the detailed arrange
ments of tho convention.
After a solo, Rev. G orge E Guild,
as one of the delegates, gave an excel
lent address, and began by d scribing
the consecration sa-vicus, which he said
were magnificent. H uekvd th-m to
picture the large hail where thev were
neld, with a large platform raised hold
ing the president, his assistants, 500
singers, thirty members of the ore .in
tra and two pianofortes completing
the musical arrangements, Tuere were
over 11.000 on the floor of the hall, all
of whom were Eudenvorers, inasmuch
as they could not be admitted without
tlie necessary passes. He then illus
trated how the oponing song, "Bring
ing in the Sheaves," was aung by the
multitude and asked his nndienux to
render the same song npou similar
lines. This was done by the right sec
tion taking oue part of the refrain,
which was then taken by the left sec
tion, the ehoir rendering the principal
part of the chorus
The reverend gentlemou then pro
ceeded with his discourse. Oaa news
paper of Cleveland had c ille.l the con
vention a ''sublitni" one and ''that it
rolled on like a mighty wave" and this
he endorsed heartily. At tbe prepira
tory services fifteen churches were
overcrowded. The convention was it
great one.owing to the attendance, IS,
700 delegates were registered outside
tne state of Ohio and 21,000 were regis
tered and received their budges within
tbe stato of Ohio, so that there were
about 40,000 authorized delegates as
sembled within one city. The attend
ance whs wonderful as the times were
"hard" and people would not travel fur
pleasure and not unless compelled to.
It was held soon after the great ex
position, where people wero satisfied
for many years, and the fact that the
strike was in full force tended to mili
tate against the attendance also. The
western delegat-.a were guarded by
The convention was great iu the sec
ond place owing to the objtict for
which it was convened. It was not for
political purposes, for any great
problem of education, eto , bnt for
' Christ and Ilis church." and it was
remarkable that the 40.000 comprised
the richest culture of America gath
ered together in a single city.
The convention whs groat in enthu
siasm. Representatives enthusiastic in
tho causa came from all parts of the
United States, Canada, the islands of
Ite sen, Japan, China and the mission
fluids of the world. In fact, said the
speaker, it represented all the Chris
tian nations iu the world. They were
enthusiastic aUo for tbe reasou that
ninety-nine out of every hundred at
tended the almost continual stssions
despite the tvmptntions to lounge after
their travels or to walk to see tbe
eights of the grtat city, and especially
when many of tlie delegates bad to
travel fonr or five miles to their board
The convention also was great in
churacter and the theme of addresses.
Think of these subjects : "Glorifying
of God," 'What Has Your Society
Done for Elucaiiug Good Citizens?"
"Common Sense in Church Life and
Work," "Strategic Work in Missions,"
"Women in Temperance," and "The
Movement Among the Jews." The
convention also whs the best yet held
and was superior even to that beld in
Montreal or New York. One feature
that made an impression upon him was
that there wero more men than women.
Men of 35 years are genorally so en
grossed in business that they think if
they went into nny religious work tbe
busiuess wonld go to imash. Tney
ougnt to remember thnt the first thing
in life was to serve God aud be was
glad to observe the very numerous (lass
of men of that age who were presetit.
Tbe conference was urent in what it
represented. The 40,000 had nil taken
the solemu pledge ot the league, but
more than this they represented two
millions who also bad made thutplelge
and this innst be a means of great iu-
flaenne wherever it was exercised. Thu
speaker also referred to the good Im
pressions made by the convention.
Special hymns in connection with the
bndeavor league wers afterward sung

QUARTER OF A CENTURY
That Is the Length of Time That tbe Lleder-
kraoz Has Bsen la Existence.,
SOLID, SUBSTANTIAL SOCIETY
From Its Inception It Has Been One
of the Prominent German Organi
zations of the City and Numbered
Among Its Members Many of Our
Most Influential and Progressive
Germans Proposed Celebration.
Tbe recent announcement of the
Scranton Liedorkranz society that they
wonld celebrate the quarter-centennial
of their organization August 1 and 2,
offers a fruitful opporlnulty ot reading
between the lines, il-yond tbe bare
statement of an event and two dates
appears tbe opportunity for prolific
retrospect amid the history of a society
of tbe beet Gorman element in the city
whose stability of churactT ls reiter
ated by the fact that their organization
has retained its pnrpose aud character
through twenty-five years.
Tbe Lioderkranz is the leading Ger
man club aud singing society in this
city, aud Biuce its inception in 1809 its
membership roll has contained tbe
names of the best known German res
idents. All of them, in a greater or
lets degree, contributed proportionally
by their good citizenship toward mak
ing Scranton the premier city of her
class and the third In rank in Pennsyl
vania. At preseut Conrad Schroeder,
one of the foremost builders ot tbe city
Is its president. Preceding him were
Dr. P, F. Gunste,r. Joseph Ober and
Colonel IL-r in an Otthuui. Professor
F. F. Kopff, the talented violinist, is
Its musical director, and A. Conrad,
another noted musician, was his pre
decessor. ORIGINAL SIXTEEN MEMBERS.
A glance at the following list of six
teen members, some deceased, some re
moved, but all substantial citizms,
gives an idea of what manner ot mjn
founded a purely local society which
could thrive and celebrate its twenty
fifth birthday: Camile Crejoi. Andrew
Conrad, Peter Ilaettich, Philip Geiger,
George Wahl, Caspar Zwald, Frederick
Wiiikllman Christian Keller, Joseph
Oner, Charles Robinson, Nicholas
Dickelnick, John Brocker, Frederick
Cook, Frank Kiefvr, John Mertz,
Charles Fisher. Four of these founders
are still active and steadfast members
of the Liederkranz.
It seems appropiate, after a considera
tion ot tbe brief historical comments
above, that the society should choose a
method of celebration which will en
tertain otheis as well ns themselves,
and perpetuate tbe feeling which made
the 25 year life nf a local society a
potsibility. The arrangements are br
ing perfected by competent commit
tees, and every part of tho entertain
ment is sure to prove enjoyable, as do
all the public events of the Lieder
kranz. All the details have not been arrang
