FUG UP THE SLATE
Democratic Leaders of tbe County Have
Serious Task Before Tliem.
GEORGE HOWELL FOR CONGRESS
He Is Now the Favorite for the Nomi
nation P. P. Smith Will Op
pose Judge Archbald for the Judge
ship and James G. Bailey Will Be
Tendered the Nomination for Sher
iff-Sheriff Fahey May Be Placed on
There was a lively scurrying among
Democratio politicians Saturday. The
primaries of the party were being held
tut they reeeivea nine or no attention
from the bosses who wore deeply inteut
on the task of constructing a slate so
balanced that it would have a chanoe
of weathering tbe big gale that is com
ing iu November.
Much interest is centered in this con
gressional district this year and the re
sult of the pending finht will be closely
watched by William U. ilarrity aud
others who are high in the councils of
the Democratic party of the state nnd
uution. They want this district to
point to 08 an evidence that the recent
tariff legislation by a Democratio con
gress is endorsed in great manufactur
ing centers, such as this is. Ex-Sheriff
Hobinson has had tbe disposing of the
federal patronage hereabouts and to
him was" assigned tbe duty of swinging
this county into the Demooratio column
us a proof that the offices doled ont to
him wero not misplaced.
A CANDIDATE FOB CONQKES9
Mr. Robinson and the other Demo
cratio leaders were not unmiudful of
the desperate task the national leaders
assigned them to nnd for several weeks
they have been on the outlook for a
candidate for congress. John E. Roche
was approached on the snbjeot, but re
fused to consider a proposition to bs a
candidate. He is not looking for office
this year. W. II. Uenrhnrt and Pro
fessor George Howell were also consid
ered. A conference of the leaders was
held Saturday morning, but adjourned
until evening to give ex Sheriff Robin
son an opportunity to have a talk with
ex-Judge Smith. It was Mr. Robin
eon's idea that Mr. Smith would make
an excellent candidate for cougress and
he wanted tbe es-ju lge to relinquish
tbe idea of again becoming a candidate
for jndge and instead accept the con
That was a proposition to which Mr.
Smith would not agree. It would
mean the indorsement of Judge Arch
ibald nnd, as Mr. Smith put it, leave
him open to the charge of having de
serted when bis party needed a candi
date. If he accepted any nomination
IS would be that of jade, and Mr.
Robinson thereupon went back to re
join bis colleagues a somewhat disap
pointed man. That was at 0 p.m.
THE EVENING CONFERENCE.
Another conference was held in the
Scranton House after supper. In the
meantime the congressional field had
b?en surveyed with all kinds of tele
scopes and the only person who loomed
np its a possibility was ex-Congressman
Amertnan. True, be had publicly
stated Unit he wouid not be a candidate
for the office, but it was thought be
might be induced to reconsidor his de
termination. He was sent for.
The relations between Mr. Robinson
and Mr. Amerman have been some
what strained since the latter' recom
mendations with regard to federal ap
pointments were ignored in the inter-f-xts
of Mr. Robinson. At the confer
ence between these notables, however,
it wus hoped tbe differences of the past
would be bridged, and an agreement
concerning the future entered into.
This done, it was hoped Mr. Amerman
would agree to become the candi
date for congress. That disposed of
the head of the ticket and P. P. Smith's
name next went down on the slate af
ter the oflke of judge. Next came
sheriff and here was another rub.
James O. Bailey would rather be
a candidate for clerk of the
courts, but John Durkin, another as
pirant for that postion, bad made an
earnest canvass for delegates and if set
nsido might be in a position to break
tbe slate in the convention which would
leave Mr. Bailey out in tbe cold.
BAILEY FOR SHERIFF.
It was therefore resolved to slate
Bailey for sheriff and Charles Sohadt
will be the candidate for county treas
urer as agreed npon weeks ago. The
nomination for diatriot attorney is ao
corded to John P. Kelly and Jamas J.
Healey will have no opposition for re
corder. John Durkin is on tbe Blate
for clerk of the courts.
II. T. Koehler is Blnted for register
of wills although Frank Deckert's
name is still mentioned for the office.
Notwithstanding Sheriff Fahey's oft
repeated statement that be does not
want a nomination this year be may
be found on the ticket as candidate for
prothonotary, Matthew Norton of
C'arbondale and JJobn Lentns of the
South Side are also mentioned for tbo
cilice. Denis J. Roche will probably
receive the nomination for jury com
missioner. Lust night another conference was
held at tbe Scranton House and the
question of a candidate for congress
discussed. It is highly probale that
Professor George Howell, of the WeBt
Side, will be tbe man who will be de
cided upon. Mr. Howell is not pursu
ing tbe nomination, but tbe leaders
think be would make a strong candi
date. Sheriff Fahey stated last night that
he did not know whether or not he
would accept the nomination for pro
tbonotory. Saturdav afternoon a oer
tain condition of affairs had existed
and be consented to take a nlaoe on
the ticket. The aspect of affairs bad
altered later andibe was not prepared
last night to say what be would do.
Tbere was little interest displayed
in the primaries Saturday and in
some districts only tbe form of an
election was conducted. Tbe conven
tion will be called to order Tuesday
morning ot 10,80 in tbe court house by
Sheriff Fahey who is chairman of the
BATTLE FOR SHERIFF.
At a late hour last night the follow
ing card was received by Tub Tribune
from D. P. Battle, of the Twentieth
I do hereby declare myself a candidate
for sheriff, subject to tbe will of tbe
Democratic convention on Tuesday next.

Choir of 100 Male Voices Assist at
Tbe Frothingham theater was over
crowded at the men's service last night
when Mr. Mooly addressed over 3,000
men. Excellent musio was piovided
by a special choir comprising 103 male
voices seleoted from the Sacred Musi

Morgan. George C Stebbins, the
musical colleague of Mr. Moody, and
Caswallon Davis, of the Moody quar
tette, also contributed selections with
their usual skill.
The preliminary services wer con
ducted by Secretary Ponrsall of the
Railroad Young Men's Christian nsao
cintiou and Secretary Many of Young
Men's Christian association.
Mr. Moody took bis text from G.il
atiaus vi, 7., "Di not deceived; God is
not mocked, for whatsoever n man
soweth, that shall he also reap." The
evangelist introduced his subject in
the following language:
Nine years ago I did not sw the truth of
that versa as I see it tonight, and it has
been burning deeper dowu in mv heart
ever since. It is astonishing how blind
people must be that thay don't see the
gravity of this verse, which is one of
God's fixed laws and one which meets man
iu every turn of his life, nod from which
no one is exempt tho priest at tho altar,
tho peasant, the congressman r the pr?i
dent of the United Slates. "Bo not de
ceived." We are deceived by our neigh
bors, and to come nearer to homo we may
be deceived by our twin brother, nnd
above all your own heart is more deceitful
to you than nil thiugs; but one thing is
sure the Uod of that Bible never was and
never will bo deceitful. Tuere aro a class
of peoplo who, In cause they don't lelieve,
declare that a thin a must not b.i trno, but
that makes no (lilference to the truth nv
ertheloss, Thoao men don't want to be
lieve. I am not in the habit of dividing my ser
mons into beads as I fear of getting lost
before concluding, but this eveuiug I pro
pose to divide my sermon into four por
tions. (1) A man expects to reap where hn
sows. Would a fanner sow if ho expected
no uarvestr u ue expecteu n drought or
blight would he sow tho seed? Rather
would be not leave tho laud aud go and
work at something ol.-e?
WE REA1' WHERE WE SOW.
The first head does not reiinire anv more
explanation a? you all uuileratnud its
meaning, so 1 will pass over to the second.
A man expects in the natural world to
reap what be has sown. No mnu who
plants wnter melons expects to get tur
nips, neither would a mau sow wheat aud
expect to grow cucumters. Neither
would a man who had learned tbo trade of
a blacksmith expect to know all ubout
medicine, aud just as true it is in tho spir
itual world, that a man is going to reap
the same kind of seed he sows. If you sow
lies you are certain to reap lies.
btorekeepershave asked me to account for
the large number of dishonest clerks and
I have told thuui that wlwu they compel
these very clorks to sell all woolen goods
when they are half cotton. t!jer nro sim
ply sowing the lies and reaping what they
uave sown, anu is it tneie ore nnvtnng to
be surprised at that if yon that'll them to
cheat they are bound to ch-at youf If
you sow lies be cortnin tnat ynu s'jall reap
lies. I wouldn't sell whisky, and whyy I
would be making a drunkard of your son
and would reap what I was sowing by
someone making a drunkard of my son.
I challenge any rum-seller if he is present
to find me a man who has beeu in the
whisky business twenty years and who
has not a family skeleton either in a
drunkard son or near relative.
My friends you canuot afford t o sell.
Don't sell out but knock in the end of
your whiskey barrels aud empty it in the
bewer. Rise as oue man and keen the
cumed thing out of tbo land. Tiiev are
sowing in the flesli to reap iu corruption.
ine same tiling applies to the church
member who rents his propertv for these
purposes, or the man who holds stock in
ineui. lou cannot u-nt about the bush
with the devil. You will reap what vou
bow aud hnd better look after your invest
ments. Ijook wnetner tins is not the
truth and if it is not to be found in the
Bible and if you dou't care for it. co out.
as 1 am goiug at it still harder.
TRUTHS PLAINLY TOLD.
Mr. Moody then faithfully carried
out bis promise and went at it very
much harder and rung out pluin truths
which every man iu the 3,000 mnnt
have felt their force in one rjspct or
"Supposing," s:ii J he, "that a man
steals my pocketbook wnat do I lose a
few greenbacks, what does he lose?
He loses a clear conscience, he loses his
soul and forfeits beavon."
After demonstrating bow Jacob nnd
David had reaped tbe sins they bad
sown and how adultery, rebellion and
imirdtr occurred iu David's family
and were just tbe sins be had sown the
evungelut passed on to third head ; a
man will reap mors than he sows. A
farmer told him that from one bean he
so.wed.he reaped no less than 1,000
beans. Jacob reaped for twonty years
what took but an boar to sow aud
while ho ' whs preaching there were
men iu Scranton sowing sins which
would take all their natural life in re
peating. Young men tulk about just
sowing their "wild oats." Do they
realize that in the reaping they will
reap in shams involving a devoted
wife, a sainted mother, the little inno
cent children. Where are the bank
clerks, cashier nnd president who by
small sius developed their sowing until
now wo read of them reaping tbelr
harvest for ten, fifteen, nay twenty

years in the penitentiary. In the fourth
place the kind of seed makes no differ
ence. Pnt it to yourself, said the evangelist
selecting a few of his audience; what
am I sowing today? Let the question
swtep through this hall 1 Lit every
one question himself deeply as to
whether he is sowing the wheat or tnres?
Everyman knows what he is sowing.
You know! If so you are going to reap
eternal remors. You or sowing in
tbe rlosh to reap in corruption. Do you
spend yonr evenings in the whisky
shops? I would prefer being a slave,
as they were in the South, under tho
meanest master than be a ser
vant to the devil, cbnined to
him and sweeping along to hell. To
you I say what are you sowing? How
do you treat your parents? Do you
talk abont them as being "too relig
ious?" What an utter ooutempt I fee!
for the young wretch who lightly
speaks upon tho stroot to his scorning
companions of the "too religious" but
sainted mother. ,God have mercy upon
such a wrotch.
Mr. Moody then dealt with varions
phases of tbe fourth division of bis
sermon and closed with an earnest ap
peal to his audience to examine them
selves as to what they were reaping
lest they sow tbe wind' and reaped the
whirlwind in eternity.
ADDRESS TO LADIKS.
The ladies' meeting ut Elm Park
church nt 4 o'clock ufternooa drew a
large congregation of ladios to that
magnificent church. It was crowde l
beyond its capacity with ladies of nil
ages, nnd tho effect of tho various
pretty dresses, nnd contrasting colors
was oue not to be forgotten.
After several seleatious had hfon
sung undur the direction of Mr. Steb
bins, prayer was offered by Mr. Moody
in terms most iinpri89ive. IIo asked
diviuo help for those women curaed
with drunken husbands and for the
blessing of the hoavouly Father upon
the young maidens who were entering
the battle of lifo. In tuo coursj of nu
oxcolleut address delivered by Mr.
Moody for th special beueiit of the In
dies, he observed:
I shall spsiik on these wordy which nre
found in the epistle to St. John, chanter
4: "Uod is Love." The lovo of GoJ is an
unchangeable lova not fickle liiia tbo way
we, love. There are many that you lovod
u few years ngo but who you would now
pass on the streets uneb'ervod and there
lies the dilferuuce between tho human aud
THE LOVE Ol' 001).
When our friends betrav us and
deoitful, we ccaae to lovo them, but God's
love is unchangeable, and llo loves those
who lovo Iliui as well us thosa who do nut
The ctrongest human love is tho love of u
mother. Mho lovn of n father to a son ninv
beestranged, or the love of n wife to her
husband may cease, but not through tiio
wido, wide, world will you find a tnio
mothor who will cease to love her baha.
After this introduction which s?-
enred the close attention of his hearars,
Mr. Moody proceeded to illustrate tho
many points of his eloquent nddresa
with thrilling incideuts. which iu simi
lar langu-.ge be applied with his usual
incisiveueas to bis large nullenoe. liis

that w. ilo the address would nff.ml

The Bible is a unit. There is no discord
whatever in its construction. It is the.
same as an organ when touched by a
BKiueu iianu. inero is uanuony. The
Beeds of truth were sown in (ionosis und
developments following iu the rest of its
books. There is one vsry erroueous view
which some people have, aud that is wheu
Christ comes, that it will be the end of the
world. For 1,800 years tho Jews have
been blinded aud tho Ueutiles illuminated.
At the end of this age a most wonderful
transformation scene will occur. Koine
sny that Christ is only wailing for n car

them ready to receive him. Hn cuiuj into
this world to put uway sin, and it nevi r
was put away nutil he camo. We uow say,
"How about the saints of tho Uld Testa
