SCHIVEREA MISSION NOTES.
At noon Evangelist Schiverea will ad
dreis the men at the Dickson Manufactur
ing works, Penn avenue.
Today's meeting at the Gospel tent will
be: 8.30 p. m., mass meeting for children;
7,80 p. m., meeting for men.
Hundreds In Scran ton will be glad to
tear that Messrs. schievera and Weeden
have definitely arranged to visit Scranton
On Thursday evening Evangelist Schiv
erea, referring to newspaper reports of
mo mission woric, gave very lavoraole
mention of The Tribune.
Evangelist Sbiverea referred Tn bis ad.
dress last night to a visit to a mine. He
and Mrs. Bcbievtra were piloted through
the Pine Brook mine yesterday morning
by Outside Foreman Bess.
At a meeting of the campaign commit
tee it was decided to reqnest Evangelists
Schieverea and Weeden to remain an
other week. The Wyoming vallev general
committee have purchased one ot the
tents Tor a mission campaign.
Yesterday at noon a SDlendid meeting
was held at the Delaware, Lackawanna
ana western car shops when the evangel
iat excelled his previous records In power-
ruiiy airectea appeals to working men.
He spoke most earnestly upon the ques
tion of thrift and the striking illustrations
made deep impressions.
In the afternoon bis address was mainlv
directed to a middle-class audience, and
bis truths were told with painful nreci
sion. An Important and well delivered
feature of bn address was the waste of
money upon luxuries, which, if the teotle
were SDointed would, instead of spending
on cards, cigars and plays, be sent to
heathen lands for the propagation of the
Gospel. Another point fully worthy of
consideration was bis question: "Do yon
now 01 momer Who has savea ner enn
dren by cards, dances or playsf" He illus
trated tbisbyUhe case of a mayor's wife.
who burnt all the playing cards ratber
than the seeds of gambling should be sown
In the minds of her sons "right in tbeir
own home." The manner in which he
placed the question was one which com
pelled his bearers to think over it after
leaving the meeting.
Last night the attend nce at the gospel
tent was larger than ever, and Evangelist
Kcbiverea mede a bold move in the drift
ot bis sermon. During bis address be in
trodnced the question of "free evils," from
which emanated the query, "Wby sinners
should not go to heaven unsaved." In re
ply be nsed illustrations which wsre cer
tainly forcible, to use a mild term. "Take
a saloon-keeper," said he, "and let him
go to heaven tonight he would want to
be down in scranton again ny a o clock
In t.h morning for 'an eve nnener'. Heavan
would be hell for him. Take the money
grabber who would see the sidewalks of
trnlil ha would want a chisel and bag to
bring the gold back to Scranton. Take
the drunkard who, when he found there
were no saloons, would say, 'how can I
get back to'Boranton'. Take the girl who
will waste valuable bours in dressing before
her mirror, a girl wbo will do anything
fer a small waist, put that bunch of vanity
in heaven where she will And that there
are no 'hops,' no tight waists, why sbe
wonld soon exclaim: 'I'm going back to
Scranton." ' With numerous similar illus
tration! he Impressed bis arguments upon
his audience and dosed with an earnest
'appeal to make a bargain with Christ
wails there was time lor salvation.

THAT FIND OF STAMPS.
Postmaster F. M. Vandling Believes
They Were Stolen from the Post
office at Factoryville.
Postmaster F. M. Vandling made a
thorough examination yesterday of the
stamps fouud near Chinchilla, Thurs
day afternoon, and came to the con
clusion that noue of them were stolen
from the Scranton postoffiee.
When Mr. Vandling and Csptniu
Edwards visited tbe scene of the find
Thursday night they discovered in the
hole from whieb the stamps were tsken
four heavy mauilla envelopes in which
stamps are sent from the department
at Washington to post ofhees through
out the oounty. All of these envelops
were dlreoted to tbe postmaster at
Fsctoryville, Wyoming county, show
ing that tbey must have been stolen
from that office.
With these envelopes were found
several dollars worth of postage due
and newspaper aud periodical stamps,
wntou in tbe natural course or events,
fall into the hands of anyone bnt Dost-
A large part or tbe stamps found by
the two boys, James Jonnings and
Michael Lavelle, were also of tbe post
age du- variety. The greater portion
of them thoy burned up.
It is tbe theory of the postmaster
thxt the Factoryville postoffiee whs
robbed some time ago aud a quantity
of stamps taken. The regular stamps,
which could be converted into cash,
were carried away by the burglars, and
those that can only be osed in jiostof
ficrs, and which would be a splendid
olue to tbeir detection, were hid in the
old wail wbere tbe boys found them.
Mr. Vandling yesterday notifi-td the
postoffiee lospeotor at Philadelphia of
the nuding of tbe stamps.
