Programme for Today
The central meetings to celebrate the
one hundredth anniversary of the in
stitution of Baptist work In Scranton
and vicinity were continued yesterday
at the Penn Avenue Baptist church. A
prayer and praise meeting was held at
2.45 p. m., after which the pastor, Rev.
Warren G. Partridge, delivered an ad
dress of welcome and said:
"It Is a Blncere, heartfelt and a two
fold welcome which I extend to yotl to
day, as It is a welcome to two annlver-'
Barles, the thirty-fifth anniversary of
this church and the one hundredth
anniversary of the blessed work of our
denomination in the city. To the pas
tors who are laboring Jn the city they
have a noble example before them in
William Blahop and Elder Mott, which
should inspire us to noble service when
we think of the work of the early days.
I welcome particularly Brother Archer,
of Pittston, and Mrs. Cutler, of Provi
dence, who are present, and were two
of the charter members of this church.
"I welcome also the older members,
those who I see among us today with
grey hairs. God bless your last days.
We have no idea of the difficulties
under which you worked In the early
days of the churoh. I welcome the
middle aged who are now in the midst
of the work, and also the young people
from whom so much Is expected in the
affiliation of the young people of our
churches. We iwelcome all, whether
from the city or from the distance, with
cordial love and fellowship."
The First Baptist Church.
Mr. Partridge then gave numerous
statistics of the increase of Baptist
work and remarked 'that the First
Huptlst church In Pennsylvania was
established 210 years ago, and was
called the Lower Bethlehem Baptist
church. At present there are 677
churches in the state with 90,000 mem
bers, and last year alone 6,400 bap
tisms took place. In the Ablngton as
sociation , there i 'are twenty-three
churches with over 4,300 members, and
in Scranton there are nine churches.
In Conclusion he rpnpurerl a n,.r,llnl

Miss Mary Bevan read an excellent
paper upon the pastorate of her father,
Rev. Dr. Isaac Bevan, who wan first
pastor of the church, serving In that
capacity from Nov. 1, 1859, to Nov 2
1869. Several Incidents In his pastorate
w-ie reitueu in yesterday's Tribune.
Rev. W. P. Helllngs, of Omaha, Neb.,
delivered an entertaining address on
his reminiscences while pastor of the
cnurcn irom uec. 20. 1N69. to Mav '!.
1877. A notable feature of Dr Helflng'n
puHioruie was tne frenerous liberality
of Mr. and Mrs. Nuthuniei ltuiiutouri
who presented the beautiful parsonage'
to the church. This munilicent action
of one of the pillars of the Baptist
cuiuiuuiiiiy was reierren to by then
lormer pastor. Several incidents ot
deep Interest to a large number present
were related by the speaker and the
awakening of old associations by his
eloquent auaress made a great imprcS'
slon on his audience.

the pastor, Rev. Warren G. Partridge,
assisted by the pastors of the daughter
churches, Rev.W. .1. Ford, Green Ridge;
Rev. W. J. Watklns, Providence, and
Kev. a. J. u Meal, JJunmore.
An excellent quintette, "Seek Te the
Lord," was rendered by Professor
Watklns' choir, and other selections
were given during the service which
were of a high musical standard.
Rev., Dr. Edward Judson, of the Jud
son Memorial church, New York, was
Introduced by the pastor and took his
text from Luke x. 29, his theme being
"The Great Samaritan, the Model Phil
anthroplst" and said:
Remarks of Dr1. Judson,
"This simple story which Jesus tells
Is familiar to all since childhood, and
are words of great value in telling us
of true phllanthrophy. Jesus Intro
duces four figures; first the sufferer,
then the priest, who may be called the
egotist, and the sufferer naturally looks
upon him as one who will give him re
lief; and as he was a priest at leisure or
on vacation and had Just been perform
Ing acts of worship, It was reasonable
to expect this. But the priest passed
by, made an excuse and went on his
way. Then Christ presents the Levlte.
who we may term the sentimentalist; he
went and feasted his eyes on the horri
ble sight but took it all out In feeling,
Church work which Is sensational and
works on the feelings, is undignified and
gets Immediate results, but they ephe
mereal. A man who lets his feelings be
Btirred and does nothing Is more apa
thetlc than before and It Is remarkable
to what depths of meanness human
nature will descend when unobserved,
Christ then presents the philanthropist
in the garb of a Samaritan who dressed
the wounds of the sufferer and
placed him on his beast and saw
him In safe hands.
"There are three questions that are
answered In the parable. Who is my
nelgbor? and It Is answered Incident
ally 'Ye who suffer' all the fallen men
and wonTen, the heathens, all In suffer
Ing, all these are our neighbors.
' 'What la It to be neighborly?' This
Is the central thought; true neighbor!
neas Is the doctrine of the j arable.
The church should be directly engaged
In works of philanthropy and alleviate
the distress In Its Immediate neighbor
hood, and If It were responsible for the
poor children, the waifs, and the op
pressed, a church home for the sick,
what a glorious work would be accom
pushed. True philanthropy has many
features. We should be observant
Some are so absorbed In the world's
affairs that they do not observe the
misery and cases of waste; observant
i attention to the roelal sores and an ln
i tensity ot sympathy would, soon re
; move them.
True Philanthropy Is Practical.
j "Promptness Is essential to true phil
anthropy. We should not delav. True
philanthropy is practical and does not un-
uenane to promote societies and revel
in the luxuries of bylaws. It is per
sonal. It Is no good to accomplish It by
proxy, it must be personal to come In
contact with the suffering. It is per
sistent and does not easily give up; peo
ple nae to Degin philanthropic work and
are easily discouiaa-ecl. but true
philanthropy Is never weary of well do
ing. It is also thrifty and business
like and It Is unselfish because you
never expect to get anything back. .
tne tnira. question answered, Is
What shall I do to Inherit eternal
life?' and the answer Is that to love
Is to live. One who does not love may
exist, but he does not live. There is
world-wide difference between love
and lust. The question has been asked.
Is marriage a failure?' and I think the
best answer is, that marriage is not a
failure, but many married men and
married women are. Where does the
Gospel come In? 'It Is impossible to
ove without opening the whole soul to
Jesus, and this Is the teaching of the old
parable and Its questions and answers."

WELSH EPISCOPAL CHURCH.
Young Men of St. David's Church, of the
West Side, Are Agitating Its Establish
mcnt-Schemc That Is Under Consilium
As the outcome of an article In the last
Issue of St. Luke's parish magazine, upon
the great need of a Welsh Episcopal
church In Scranton, several young men
members of St. David's church, headed
by T. O. Jones, director of the Brother
hood of St. Andrew, are taking the ques-
tlon up In earnest and will approach
the rector. Rev. M. H. Mill, with a view
to secure his sanction to the movement.
Among the thousands of Welsh res!
dents in Hyde Park there must be a con
siderable number of Episcopalians who
nave been accustomed to a Welsh ser
vice, and who, probably, do not regularly
rrequent a place of worship, and If the
movement Is properly directed there Is
no reason, In the minds of the promo
ters, why they could not secure the
largest Individual congregation In
The suggestion that will be made for
the consideration of the rector, is that
Welsh services be held either in St
David's church or In the school room
at 6 p. m., before the ordinary evening
service, until such time as arrange
ments can be made for a permanent
church or room, and. If possible.
Welsh speaking lay reader or clergy
The Bcheme Is very comprehensive
ana the young men deserve every en
couragement for their pluck In taking
upon themselves such great responsl
bllity. Welshmen Interested In the
movement should, at once, communl
cate with Mr. Jones, who will be pleased
to explain all details in the prepara
tory stage or the movement.
There is no doubt that Mr. Mill and
the vestry of St. David's will willingly
assist to their utmost in the matter.
