PROGRESS OFTHE BAPTISTS
Short Sketch of the Work of the Fast
ITS EARLY HISTORY RECALLED
The Constituent .Members of the l'cnn
Avcnuo Church-Former Pastor and
Their Work-Tho Present Position
The centennial services to celebrate
the one hundredth anniversary of the
liaptlst community In Scranton and vi
cinity Is of Intense Interest to the mem
bers of that connection, and It cannot
fall to be of Interest to all persons In
terested In the advancement of Chris
tian organization and work.
Marvellous is the growth of this par
ticular denomination since the days of
their pioneer pastor Rev. William
Bishop who cams to Scranton in 17M
Just one hundred years ago, who
labored with great results; but, in those
by-Kone days, the converts were united
to the Pittston Baptist church. In 1S02
thut church which embraced all this
vast territory covered now by Baptist
churches Innumerable, was known as
"the Pittston and Providence church."
There are many Incidents of supreme
Interest, which, no doubt, will be re
lated tomorrow na to the early fathers
of the church In this city, but every one
will readily admit the great Inconven
ience and hardships they suffered in
the cause of their great Master. The
first pastor Mr. Bishop built his own
residence of hewn logs, and It stood on
the site of Mr. Merrifleld's residence,
and he was the owner of a farm of HOO
acres, which extended to the Lacka
wanna river, so that a large portion of
the Bite of the Electric city was over
the property of a Baptist blRhop.Thls,
however, proves conclusively that Bap
tists were among the first settlers who
commenced and helped to develop the
great city of Scranton, and It Is Inter
esting to observe that the denomination
has progressed concurrently with the
Increase and Importance of the city.
First Church Organized.
Passing to the year 1833 Rev. W. K.
Mott commenced his labors In the city
and organized the first permanent Bap
tist church which materialized in the
old Chestnut Street church In 1S19. In
US50 the First Welsh Baptist church
was organized, although previous to
this Rev. William Richmond held ser
This will bring the reader to the or
ganization of the Penn Avenue Bap
tist church, the first record of which
Is found to be a meeting hall at the
residence of Nathaniel Hallateud, on
May 28, 1859, and after the necessary
preliminary steps were transacted, a
further meeting was held on Aug. .1
following, .when it was decided by three
present 'to constitute the First English
Baptist church of Scranton." The fol
lowing were the constituent members,
eighteen of whom came from the Chest
nut street church: Nathaniel Hall
stead, Mrs. F. A. Hallstead, Horace
Ladd, M. D., Mrs. K. C. Ladd, James
K. Friant, Mrs. A. R. Frlant. Charles
Q. Carman, Mrs. Elizabeth Carman, L.

C. Krigbaum, George W. Archer, Mrs.
Catherine Scull, George W. Lung, Mrs,
Lydla Cook, Mrs. S. A. Lukens.
The Early Sen ices.
Such was the small beginning of the
present powerful church and Its four
daughter churches. Services were held
for some time In the Odd Fellows' hall,
Rev. Theophllus Jones, of the Welsh
church, preaching every Sunday night
for two months until Nov. 1, when the
first pastor, Rev. Isaac Bevan, took
charge of the congregation of twenty
three persons. Various attempts were
made to secure outside aid for his sup
port, but without avail, and his first
year's salary amounted to $500.
In 1SCI the place of worship was
changed to Washington hall. In 1SG4
two lots were purchased from the Lack
awanna Coal and Iron company, and
an additional lot was purchased subse
quently and with the lot purchased
from Judge Handley. makes $0,100 as
the total sum expended by the church
In real estate.
In September. 18C5, the lecture room
of the new edifice. on Penn avenue was
completed and worship was duly com
menced there at the end of the sixth
year of the church. The church was
Incorporated Jan. 4, 1800, as "The Bap
tist Church of Scranton," and the char
ter was amended In 1881 and the name
changed to the "Penn Avenue Baptist
church, of Scranton."
Dr. Bevan remained pastor during
the first decade until Nov. 2, 18W, and
during his pastorate the membership
increased from 23 to 252. Over $29,000
were raised during this period. Miss
Mary Bevan will speak more fully of
her father's work at this afternoon's
Rev. W- P. Helling. D. 1).
Rev. W. P. Helllngs will deliver his
"Reminiscences" this afternoon, and
as the second pastor of this church
his address will be of great Interest.
He entered upon hla duties Feb. 1,
18i0, and with the energy of young man
hood threw himself Into the work. Dur
ing his pastorate Deacon Nathaniel
Hallstead and wife presented to the
church the beautiful parsonage,
valued then at $12,000. Three hundred
and eighty-eight members were added
to the church and $17,616 were raised
during his seven years ministrations.
Further the First German Baptist
church, of Scranton, was organized
during this period, and the I'lttston
Avenue Sunday school was commenced.
The third pastor was the Rev. A.
M. Hopper, D. T)., who wns in charge
from Aug. 1, 1877, to June HO, 1880, dur
ing which . period thirty-two were
added to the church and $8,71)3 raised
toward church expenses.
The fourth pastor, Rev. David Ppen
cer, who commenced duties on Sept.
1, 1880, is so well remembered that re
marks are unnecessary.
The Present Pastorate,
The fifth pastor Is the learned young
divine who nowoccuples the pulpit of this
Important church and whose voice is
heard in all mattters for the welfare of
the citizens of Scranton. He entered
duties on May 1, 1890, and during his
pastorate 4C0 have swelled the ranks of
the church, of whom over 300 have been
baptized. The church has been re
modelled and repaired at a cost of sev
eral thousand dollars. From the statis
tical report of 1803 the following shows
the membership of the Penn Avenue
and daughter churches, 818; Green
Ridge, 94; First German, 80; Provi

The Llanelly Mercury of Oct. 2 says:
"The promise of the Cambro-American
Concert company to visit Llanelly was
redeemed on Tuesday evening last,
when a large and appreciative audience
assembled at the Market hall. The event
was held under the auspices of the
Llanelly Foot Ball club, and was a
distinguished success. The artists com
posing the company gave a perform
ance of real merit. The concert opened
with a brilliant Interpretation of the
quartette, 'Star of Descending Night,
by Joseph P. Burns, Mias Sadie Kaiser,
Miss Cordelia Freeman and James
Anwyl. The rich, full baritone voice of
Mr. Burns was heard to great advant
age in 'The Skipper,' and he was
obliged to respond to the encore.
"Miss Allen's violin solo was a nias
terpelce, and her superb executant
ability brought down the house. She
reappeared and gave 'Land of My
Fathers' to the delight of the audience.
She gave two other solos, which were
of equal merit. Mr. Anwyl gave an
excellent rendering of 'The Holy City'
and was ivoclferously encored. 'Lo,
Hear the Gentle Lark,' by Miss Kaiser,

Scranton Sunday News, Oct. 14:
"The Scranton Tribune came out yes
terday in a new dress of type, the entire
paper, with few exceptions, being com
posed on Mergenthaler linotype ma
chines, four of which of the latest im
proved design have 'been purchased
and placed In The Tribune's composing
rooms. Editor Richard states in his
explanatory editorial that they are
operated in each instance by the same
men who used to set the type by hand.
When he adds that these wonderful
mechanisms seem almost human in
their speed, precision and ease of mo
tion he declar.es what everyone else will
agree to. The appearance of the paper
is wonderfully Improved in every re
spect; typographically it is a marvel
of clearness, and although the type
used Is much smaller than that re
cently adopted by our contemporary,
yet there is no difficulty in reading it
even by those whose eyesight may be
Impaired. As to the matter, the small
er type used will enable The Tribune to
publish more news at reduced cost, and
we congratulate our contemporary,
which has always been in the advance
in journalistic methods in this city,
upon having made a move, which will
not eventually, as some fear, throw a
number of typesetters out of work.
When the sewing machine was first
adopted the tailors objected to it be
cause they declared it would throw
seamstresses out of employment. It
has been demonstrated a thousand
times that a hundred times as much
employment has been furnished by
sewing machines as it dispensed with.
The same result will follow the use of
these typesetting machines. They
will increase the number of new Jour
nals and will multiply, therefore, more
than they displace, the number of
compositors required to work them.
This result may not be attained in a
day, but it is not far distant."

Miss .Mary Snyder, Who Attempted to
Commit Suicide, and ( lark. Alias Law
son, the lllcyclc Thief, Plead G illty.
Juuic Seott Docs Likowiie,
After the second week of quarter ses
sions, court opened yesterday morning.
Miss Mury Suyder was called to the bar
in the main court room beforo Judge
Uunster to answer two charges of lar
ceny and receiving. Miss Snydtr is the
young woman who attempted to com
mit suicide by hanging herself in her
cell in the county Juii on the night of
She is only 19 years of nge. She said
that she stole clothing from Elizabeth
Vlsey and Emma A. Keys, both of
whom are residents of the West Side of
this city. On one charge Miss Snyder
was sentenced to pay a tine of $1, costs,
spend thirty days In the county jail
and restore the Btolen property. On the
second charge the sentence was $1,
costs, one day in county jail and re
store stolen property.
James Scott, of this city, pleaded
guilty to the charge of carrying con
cealed deadly weapons nnd was sen
tenced to pay a line of $iU, costs and
spend two months In the county jail.
Scott was then asked to plead to a
charge of assault preferred by Patrick
Toomey, a train dispatcher in the Dela
ware, Lackawanna and Western yards.
He said not guilty, and the common
wealth proceeded to show that Scott,
being angry with Toomey, threw a
stone at him, which, fortunately, missed
its mark. After the commonwealth
rested, the defendant withdrew his plea
of not guilty and entered one of guilty.
He was sentenced to pay a fine of $20,
costB and ten days in Jail. The charge
of carrying conceuled weapons arose
from the fact that when Scott was cap
tured, after he threw the stone, a re
volver was found on his person.
I-awson Entered Plea of Guilty.
II. C. Clark, alla9 Clark D. Lawson,
the young man who early last summer
stole bicycles from Fred C. Hand and
Florey & Holt, pleaded guilty to lar
ceny by bailee and was remanded for
sentence. He was unrepresented by
counsel and none of the rich relatives
he is said to possess were present to
offer any assistance. Lawson's im
prisonment awaiting trial has evi
dently broken down his spirits to a
great extent, for he looked entirely un
like the blase young man who arrived
in this city one night last summer, in
charge of a Stroudsburg policeman to
answer the charge concerning which
he was yesterday asked to plead.
Afton Bushnok, of Carbondale, was
arranged beforo Judge Gunster for
having, as is alleged, stabbed s. iiupka
in the arm, side and back. The men
had a dispute in a saloon at Carbondale
and Hupka then started for home. On
the way he ugaln met Bushnok, who
drew a knife and stabbed him in the
arm and side. Hupka turned to run
away and Bushnok plunged the knife
into his back. This occurred on the
nlirht of June 23 last.
On his part the defendant denied
having used a knife on Hupka, and de
clared that he was knocked down and
robbed of a sum of money by the prose
cutor. His version of the affulr was
not very stronly corroberated. After
the testimony was all heard, Attorney
Frank T. Okell, who represented the de-
fendant, linked the court to Instruct
the Jury that the prisoner could not
be convicted on the first count of the
indictment, which charges felonious
wounding. Judge .Gunster refused to
do so. Hupka was confined to his bed
for six weeks by the wounds he re
ccived, and has not 'since been able
to pursue his vocation as a laborer. At
3.45 the Jury retired to deliberate on
the case, but did not agree on a ver
diet while court was in session,
Parker Was Fond of Horses.
Henry Parker was the next prisoner
arraigned. He was charged with the
theft of a horse, carriage and harness
from Liveryman Thomas Ilendrlck, of
Jermyn. Parker Is a middle-aged man.
On June 1 last he rented a horse and
carriage from one of Hendrick's em
ployes, saying he wanted to drive to
Olyphant., Instead he drove to Provi
dence and put the horse in the stable
of the Garfield hotel, telling the proprle
tor it was his outfit and he would leave
it there until arrangements could be
made to ship It to his home In New
Three days later Parker was
arrested at Port Jervls for a
theft of a horse owned by
Liveryman Pierce, of Carbondale,
In the station house at Carbondale,
after his arrest, Parker told Mr., Hen
drlck he was the man that hired his
horse. He said he left it at the Garfield
House at Providence, and it was found
there next day. "It's a poor horse,'
continued Parker, "and not worth any
thing." That's probnbly the reason he
left it at Providence. Testimony for the
commonwealth was still being heard
when court adjourned. The defendant
is represented by Attorney H.L.Taylor.

Valentine Hass, of Blakely borough,
was on trial yesterday charged with
feloniously wounding Thomas Jones,
About six weeks ago Hass arrested nn
old man named John Howell, who was
lying in a drunken sleep on the side

monwealth witnesses, are briefly as fol

a visit to his home at Blakely, met them
and knowing Howell, offered to take

Hass refused to give up his man and
Jones declared that it was a shame to
treat an old man In such a way. Then
William Mason offered to take the pris
oner home, but his assistance was like-

Hass became excited, drew his club.

about to hand It to the officer when tne
latter fired. The ball entered the breast
of Jones, over the heart, but fortunately
tho ball glanced upward nnd came out
at the shoulder, or Hass would have a
charge of murder to answer.
The defendant's version of the affray
differs from that of ttie witnesses for
the commonwealth. He says that there
was an attempt to taka his prisoner
from him and when he resisted it,
Jones took his club away from him and
hit him with it. Then he regained his

from him. He drew his revolver and,

between J. J. Collins and P. F. Hugnes

forth that he was .appointed by tne
