M. E. Sanders, of tho Truth, was
among those who were kept on theout
side of the meeting room for a time.
Mir. Sanders was very anxious to get
inside. He has a grievance against
Mr. biddlebncit and he wuutJd to air it
before the minting.
Secretary Uiddiebock said he tried
ever so hard to secure tlm admission of
the reporters but it was uot allowed.
Mr. Sanders claims that the constitu
tion aod by-laws of the Slate league,
whicli were drafted by him, were
changed by Mr. Did lluboek after they
bad been passed upon und adopted at
the Lancaster meeting. The change,
lie alleges, was made after the consti

Diddlebockto be print ed. One change,

Mr. Dhidlobock i.uuhed a sarcastic
laugh when news of Mr. Saudis' iu
siuuations were carried to him, and
stated that Mr. Sunders only thought
the constitution and by-laws bad been
adopted iu Lancaster. It was at a

"1 would like to do justice to the
coinnnudera nnd the soldiers who had
a part in that wonderful battle of
Gettysburg, the turning point of tho
rebellion, but it is impossible for me
to do so lu the necessarily brief space
of I lino at my disposal tonight," said
ltev. S. C. Logan, D. D., iu prefacing
his scholarly discourse on thut fumous
engagement at the Thirteenth regi

on tiie minds of the sobliir boys
the lay of tho land surround
ing Gettysburg large maps were
thrown ou a canvas by means of a
utereopticon, which enabled the lecturer
to accurately point out the positious
held by tho diff 'rent commands.
5IOV1NU TOWAltD. (IKTTVSUUItCt.
The rpeaker bogau by describing the
positions of the union and rebel armies
near Freiloricksburg on Juuo !$, 1803,
and the movement of the Johnnies
northward into Peiinnylvaniu soil with
tho looting of llarrisburg nnd Phila
delphia as the goal The reb-ls moved
on the east of the Blue Ridge moun
tains and had been marching for seven
days when Hooker also began to move
northward tor the purpose of intercept
ing Liv's forces before they coul 1 rav
ish Pennsylvania's capital.
D Logan described the events that
led tip to Hooker's resignation and tho
appointment ol G '" ral Meade to the
command on June 'li, when the two
armies were beginning to concentrate
in the reuion contributory to Gettys
burg. At this time t e union forces
consisted of from 1)0 000 to 03,000 men,
and tho rebel o; 0(5,8)0.
Oa tho night before the first day's
fight, General Meade was at Taney
town, and his men were located nt
various points from six to fifteen miles
distant from Gettysburg, in directions
varying from ist to south.
During the first day's fight which the
speaker said will rank as the moat
stubborn in history, General R"ynold,
who was iu ciinm tud of tho main
forces ou the field, was killed.
SECOND DAY'S LNCIAOEMENT.
Tho union troops were forcod back to
Seminary Hill, which became the cen
ter of operations during the two suc
ceeding days. In eloquent tortus the
speaker then described the gallant
work of the Union soldiers iu retaining
Rouud Top, the key to the whole situa
tion, At the close of the second day's
fight the uuion line had boen forcod to
tho east and the rebels were iu charge,
of the Union works.
Lee thought that all that wus neces
sary was to break the center of the
uuiou lin t and victory was his. That
desperate deed was attempted on the
third day after tho greatest cannon
duel known to history. General Long
street wus in command of the troops,
the divisions being i i charge of Gen
erals Pickett, Ponder and Wilcox.
Pickett's men made the assault and
were literally annihilated. They uevor
retreated. The division was praetioally
After d, scribing the remainder of
the battle the speaker closed with an
eloquent tribute to tha brave men who
fought in thut desperate encounter.
During bis nddrens Dr. Logan spoke

Merldith Jones, both well kuowo Scran
touiaus, played in tlm battle.

There are debts to the amount of

which will be paid from $1,801) yet dn
from the city; tho Finch bill of $3:50
will be daid from the balance and in

That is the conclusion us far ns the
committee is concerned, but it is likely
that when the matt t r -aches the office,
of the city controller it may be found
that a portion of the claims of Mr.
Keller and Bittenbender & Co. is for

began to arrive There were wifeless
f tillers carrying children of toddling
years, wati-eyed mothers with nursiug
t ub's, old women vladdHtied and made
children again by visions of a scene of
woodland aud placid waters. All theee

careworn throng thut departed in the

truinloud of tw lvo cars rolled into the

babies, mothers with hair dishevelled,
perhaps, but restfully weary and with
eyes brighter anil with a steadier throb
of heart; children with a newfound
color in their cheeks, some laughing
and chatting and many in group
sinking songs; committeemen and

It was discriminating and indescri

il was uivi n only for the deserving and
respectable whose means are too litni

from the hot and detdlitating air of the

was confined to uo particular si-x, creed

This was the eighth unnnal excur

garden, and surely the anxious and oare-
worn mothers were fortified.
It was conservatively estimated that
700 of the excursionists were children
under seven years of age. The remainder
of the party was composed principally
of aged womsu and parents accom
panying their children or present be
cause of absolute need of rest.
To describe how these 1,303 babes,
parents and children, equal iu number
tn the population of many thriviug
towns, passed the day would niuke
a volume. It is sufQsient to say that
the lake never bore upon its surface a
more contented throng, nor did it seem
that the swings and merry-go-rounda
creaked with even a sound of protest;
tbs little ones prattled while the older
children romped aud tired mothers
Although every one hud been ins
tructed to bring lunches, provision
had bsen made to furnish 2,1100 sand
wiches and 200 quarts of sweet milk
free. According to previous arrange
ment only half fare was charged those
who were sufficiently provided with
pocket money to venture a itoamer
trip around the lake, and the same
rule applied to heaping dishes of ice
cream. Still, no matter how impover
ished the purse, if the owuer desired
either boat ride or ice cream he or sho
was grntifi 'd aud it makes no differ
ence from whence the collateral came.
So, nfter it was all over and the fa
tigued committee of men and women
returned with their chnrges, also fa
tigued but till. J with a relapse iuto
happy contentment, the promoters of
