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 next summer. 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.

Used His Portion to Fatten His Pooket Book. George Ferris, late eoaebman, gar dener and "all-'round-man" to Dr. C. H. Fisher, wss committed to J all by Alderman Fitzilmmons yesterday upon a cnarge of lareeny. Ferris bad been Dr. Fisher's "all round man" for some time and abussd the confidence which tbe doctor plaeed In him. He bad obarce of tbeioow which grazed In tbe pssture three miles away, ana it is alleged led tbe cow with a rope and fastened her to the va rious tie posts while milking tbe doc tor's bovine to serve twenty.two ot his private customers, pocketing the pro ceeds at tbe rate of 20 oents per quart. When the garden produce became saleable, the peas, tomatoes, oorn, etc, furnished an additional iueome lor Ferris. This, however, did not satisfy tbe voraoloos "all round man" wbo re lieved tbe dootor ot a horse blanket, clock, stove, chamois, spriug bed and winter clotbiag, and sold most of them to Jobn C. King, of 1024 Jaskson street, proprietor ot the West Side second hand store. All the articles were recovered ex cept tbe milk and garden prodnce, which the alderman classed as hope less.

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- office employes, 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. SERVICES FOR THE WEEK. Programme That Has Been Arranged by lbs Evangelist.
