Men 'ho Are Noted for Generosity
and Good Nature.
SELECTED BY THE PEOPLE
Clarence E. Pryor and John H. Junes, Well
Known Candidates Nominated at the
Republican convention in Response
to Vniversal Demand.
The enthusiasm with which the can
didacy of John R. Jones has been re
ceived by Republican voters generally
about.the county isxme.of the evidences
of his popularity with the people.
John R. Jones was burn May 27, 1858,
at Archbald, Pa., and after a common
school education at his birthplace, com
pleted academic studies at the Keystone
Academy, Fastoryville, and Wyoming
Seminary, Kingston. Mr. Jones began
his law study at Harvard, Sept. 28, 1S77,
and graduated with the degree of LL. B.
three years later. In the meanwhile,
and after he had been but two years a
student at the .famous university at
Cambridge, on March 12, 1878, Mr. Jones
was admitted to practice his chosen
profession at Middlesex, Mass.
After his graduation Mr. Jones lost no
time In practicing his chosen profes
sion near the scenes of his boyhood. He
afterward became associated with the
office of Attorney Alexander Farn
ham at Wllkes-Barre, having mean
time been ' admitted to practice
in all the Luzerne county courts.
However, Mr. Jones' legal talents be
came best known In Lackawanna
county after he had entered the law
office of Judge R. W. Archbald, In
Scranton, Oct. 8, 1880. He was admitted
to the Lackawanna bar the same day.
He remained with Judge Archbald un
til that gentleman was elected to the
bench in 1884. ,
Today Mr. Jones Is a member of the
supreme court of Pennsylvania, the
United States circuit court, the Penn
sylvania western district court, and
finally the great supreme court of the
United States at the nation's capital.
After fighting for five years, both in
the courts of Lackawanna county and
the supreme court at Philadelphia, Mr.
Jones succeeded in abolishing tolls from
the main thoroughfare between Car
bondale and Scranton,- known as tho
Carbondale and Providence turnpike.
He had all the chains taken down from
the road and it has ever since been free
to the public. For this he received the
gratitude of the traveling public of
Lackawanna county. He had been n
delegate to many conventions and he
has nearly always made a nominating
speech. He nominated R. W. Archbald
for Judge in 1884, Joseph A. Scranton
for congress in 1883, and Hon. J. B. Van
Bergen for county treasurer the same
day. He was secretary of the 1884 con
vention and did assiduous and excellent
service as a member of the Republican
county committee the same year.
Michael Qllroy at the Fourth district
Republican conventionheld in Carbon
dale several yeara ago, was also nomi
nated by Mr. Jones.

CLARENCE E. PRYOR.
1 No candidate stands closer to the peo
ple of the county, Irrespective of party,
than genial Clarence E. Pryor, Republi
can candidate for prothonotary.
He was born In Hanover .township,
Luzerne county, April 1, 1845. Receiv
ing a good common school education he
began life by running a mine engine at
Mauch Chunk, and from H4s savings
had enough 'money to pay for a course
at Lowell's Commercial college at Blr.g
hamton, N. Y. He graduated In 1804
and came toi Scranton, where he has
since resided, except two years which
he ' spent at the Wyoming seminary.
In 1SS8 he was the Republican candi
date for county treasurer, making a
splendid run, falling Bhort only a few
votes of an election. In 1801 he was the
Republican candidate for prothonotary
and was elected by a handsome ma
jority over one of the strongest men
on the Democratic ticket.
For three years Mr. Pryor has occu
pied the office of prothonotary. and
during that time not a word of unfav
orable criticism has been heard from
any quarter as to his management of
Suffered for Twelve Years.

that important office. Ills personal
worth and popularity, as well as his ef
ficiency as a public official, were recog
nized by the Republican party In his
unanimous re-nomlnatlon. No other
Republican appeared to contest the
nomination with him; It was the unani
mous sentiment of the Republicans
throughout the county that Mr. Pryor
should have a second term, and that
sentiment will be confirmed by the
people at the ballot box next Tuesday.
Mr. Pryor's record in the office during
the past three years is every thing that
could be desired. That office has al
ways been carefully and faithfully
filled by Republican officials, but never
better than during Mr. Pryor's admin
istration. Notwithstanding extraordinary ef
forts are being made on part of the
Democratic leaders to keep Mr. Pryor's
prospective majority down to the aver

IN LOCAL THEATERS.
The scenery of Charles T. Ellis'
charming comedy, "Casper the Yodler,"
Is described as being beautiful. The
first act represents a country home on
the nicturesciuo Hudson river, ine
second act shows the interior of a
yacht at sea. During the action of this
scene, there is a vivid presentation of
a storm at sea accompanied with won
derful effects; this Is a very effective as
well as realistic scene. The third act
Introduces us to a spot that is well
known to the entire English speaking
world, a place that Is revered by those
that come from the land that holds it,
romantic "Blarney Castle," one of the
prettiest spots on the face of the globe,
and one whose tradition will live for
ever. "Casper the Yodler" will be pro
duced at the Academy of Music to

There Is every Indication that the In-
nes band concerts at the Frothlngham
Saturday afternoon and evening will
be greeted by large audiences. "War
and Peace" has excited the liveliest
ndmiratlon wherever it has been heard.
The work is introduced with a sym
phonic prelude, pastoral In character,
giving the Idea of tho peaceful times
which preceded the great rebellion.
This Is followed by premonitory symp
toms of the approaching war, which
followed fast until they culminated in
the boom of the cannon which an
nounces the attack on Fort Sumter.
Then there Is the call to arms, and as
the young volunteers march to the
front having uttered a prayer for vic
tory the male chorus sings the most ap
propriate "Soldier's Farewell."

The morning session of the teachers'
institute at the court house, after the
usual singing exercises, was presented
witn the report of the committee on
election. The five teachers who had re
ceived the highest number of votes on
the permanent certificate committee
were read as follows: T. G. Osborno,
E. D. Bovard, R. N. Davis, M. W. Cum-
mlngs and T. L. Thompson.
Professor Eppsteln Instructed the
teachers In music for a half hour and
then Professor Albert lectured on his
tory. Natural history, he said, Is a
branch of study that the pupils can be
made to thirst after. When the inter
est Is awakened, the introduction of
specimens of natural history Is a very
great aid in class work. The children
like to study them and progress is rap
Dr. White followed with a disserta
tion on methods of teaching. There are
three distinct ' features of instruction
and each one Is an important factor In
Itself. Drill and teBt are the principal
points in. methods. By drill is meant the
exercise of repeating the subject until It
Is thoroughly mastered. Dr. White is
somewhat of a believer In the new
school of methods and does not make
any bones about delivering body blows
to the time-worn fads that prevailed
In log school houses. His proposition
fs that the schools advance as well as
other things and the up-to-date

tArtlrt a r9 naur IntTnnHnna ' '
The afternoon session was opened
with singing, Mr. Eppsteln leading,
and Dr. N. C. Schaeffer, state superin
tendent of public instruction, spoke to
the teachers. His subject Is one that
every teacher was pleased to hear, and
substantially was an appeal for higher
salaries and longer school terms. Our
state, he said, stands among the first in
commercial and Industrial wealth, but
It is eleventh In the Hat of states In
the average length of the school term,
twenty-eighth In average wages paid to
male teachers, and twenty-ninth in the
wages paid to female teachers.
Where the Blame Kcstsi.
The blame for this condition was
placed on the shoulders of the directors,
and Dr. Schaeffer apparently has not a
high opinion of the average director.
That functionary he feared was too
often selected not from his moral fit
ness for the position, but a connection
with secret societies or a little brief
authority Is apt to figure largely, lie
said the teacher wields a power for
good that Is more patent in its effects
than the sway of the czar of Russia,
but the director is above the teacher on
the principle that the creator is above
the creature. He advised that the way
to Improve the schools and the condi
tion of the school system was to im
prove the calibre of men who direct the
Dr. Schaeffer did not think It was a
brilliant thing to observe members of
school boards who are not able to read
or write beyond the simple signing of
tho autograph. . The men who are en
trusted with the selection of teachers
ought to be men who are educated and
the teachers ought to be hired for men
tal, not political qualifications. ,He
feared that this millennial ago was not
far enough advanced to lay aside the
Professor Eppsteln Is making marked
headway in his musical Instruction. He
devoted a half hour to the scale and
a class of little, girls followed him
through the exercises.
Dr. White took , up the remainder of
the afternoon on drill In tho schools. It
was a continuation of his topic at the
morning . session and presented hints
that will be of value to the teachers
when they go back to shcool work. He'
said a school never rises higher than the
teacher. When the teacher Is slipshod
the school will be In a similar condi
tion. Let no teacher think that all the
work must be done by the pupils. The
teacher Is required to do the most work
and the inactivity or industry of a
school represent Just these qualities In
This morning's session will close the
Institute. Dr. White will make the con
eluding speech on school methods.

era were prompted by money alone, It
was a disgrace to the state," henoe he
did not, believe It. Education was the
science of human development, and
teaching was the art. What was the
Ideal in the mind of the teachers before
him of good character. : The ideal of
school life of every child should result
in a refined, pure and chaste life, and
the paramount question was how should
they reach It.
What Constitutes Manhood. '
To be a man was not to grow six feet
high, neither to be a woman was to
wear a bonnet and ribbons, although,
this was the ideal of many silly minds.
While in Altoona he saw a "human
being" walking the street dressed to
perfection, and exciting the Intense
admiration of the girls who seemed to
say How lovely;" yet, from curiosity,
he followed him three blocks and saw
enough to convince him that under
that broadcloth and fine garments
there throbbed the most rotten of
hearts. But when girls often saw a
poorly clad man, they pointed with
laughter, while, probably, under the
well-worn coat beat on? of the noblest
hearts of the land. There was a differ
ence in manhood, and it should be
Judged, not by appearance, but the deeds
which fill the life, and that was why he
should like to see, that day, a portrait
of the ideal In the heart of each girl
The same argument applied to the de
velopment of children, but education
must have for its first attainment a
condition of growth and not of growing
simply. Just as a tree was planted we
expect it to bear Its proper fruit accord
ing to the care we bestow upon It; so it
was with children, everything they
come in contact with educates them,
therefor how important it was that
vtn'n' o"id be i"ed to cultivate
them. A child born of illiterate parents
uiu, be iun.cn out o that environment
to bo morally clean and mentally
Education was also maturing rather
than accumulating. If education was
simply accumulative they could leave
the Instruction of arithmetic, etc., for
six months and pour In a whole supply
In a few days, or leave the Individual
until he was 21 years of age and give
him the sum total of education. But
education means to mature, education
was not training. Horses and dogs are
sometimes advertised as "educated
dogs" or "educated horses," but they
were not educated In any sense of the
word, they, were simply trained, and
were taught certain tricks, and this
was proved by the fact that they never
heard of any dog devising a new trick.
Appeals to the Spiritual Life.
Education as an unfolding appeals to
the purely rational side of the spirit
ual life. Train a dog and he is a dog
still; he has no spirit, no soul. But
with a child education makes him grow
day by day to comprehend what it is to
live. If they saw any of their boy
scholars smoking, chewing or cursing,
that boy wos aping manhood, it was
the Ideal of a man to hlmj he had the
mistaken ideal, but it was the duty of
the teachers to show him that he was
aping the wrong manhood, and by
education they should Impart the
proper ideals of the true manhood. Let
them create a desire in their pupils to
be better men and better women In
their Ideals and they would accomplish
a great work.
MIbs Gertrude M. Edmunds delivered
a telling address on "Study in Reading
and Literature," and prefaced her re
marks by a thrilling recitation of the
story of a Texas cowboy and his sweet
heart. ' The elements of reading, she
said, were mental, Intelligent and emo
tional, oral and physical.' 'A great fault
committed by some teachers was that
they neglected to build up tho scenes
Incorporated in the reading; It was an
Important feature to get the thought;
the best drill for training the vocal
powers was when using the abdominal
muscles, which should be done once a
day. If they put good literature Into
the hands of the children they could
cultivate a taste in their minds for the
best class of literature.
Miss Edmunds ridiculed the use of
"goosey gandey" or "the pig went to
market" rhymes when beautiful selec
tions could he obtained instructive also
In history, geography, etc. Speaking
from experience, sheclalmed that a child
could appreciate good literature, and
concluded by making a strong appeal
to the teachers to make use of standard
- Meeting of Directors.
An important meeting of the Lacka
wanna county school directors was held
in the Liberty hall yesterday when the
first annual session was held. The of
ficers of the association are: R. H,
Holgate, of La Plume, president; H. E.
Arms, of Spring Brook, vice president;
James J, O'Mallcy, of Olyphant, secre
President Holgate,- In delivering the
annual address, said the object of the
association was to assemble the men of
Lackawanna county who took an in
terest in the matter, to discuss ques
tions relating to the. county schools,
and to forward the movement so as to
keep pace with the other counties of
A discussion was held on the subject
of "Compulsory Education." Henry
Northup, of Glenburn, opened In a well-
delivered address in which he pointed
out the great Improvements of the com
mon school system. J. L. Stone, of
Waverly, followed, and said that hu
man nature manifested Itself In three
ways, physical, Intellectual, moral or
religious, and education embraced the
three, hence the importance of training
the youths of the country , to enable
them to become good citizens. J. ft.
Farr, promoter of the compulsory edu
cation bill, In closing the discussion,
made a splendid speech upon the ques
tlon which was well received. He said
that the petitions presented to Gover
nor Paulson asking him to sign the bill
would , cover' the whole building In
which they were then assembled.
Mis, Clark's Recitation. '.
Miss Lena Clark recited "The Doc
tor's Story," after which Dr. White, one
of the lecturers at the teacher's Insti
tute, spoke upon the school system of
At the afternon session reports were
read from secretaries of the various
school boards comprising a statement
of the work for 1892 to 1894' in the dis
tricts under their control. ,
William Repp, of Old F.orge, opened a
discussion on "How Should the State
Appropriation Be Used." Edwin Mac
lay, of Blakely, continued the discus
sion. F. L. WorhiBer, of Scranton.
contended that a larger portion of the
appropriation should be extended In
endeavoring to secure better education
and argued that the bent way to do this
was by paying a more liberal salary to
the teachers of the public schools.
A discussion was also held on the
subject of "Educational Influence of
School Outhouses and School Grounds,"
the speakers being C. H. Von Storch
of Scranton, and John W. Cure, of
Greenfields . '
Df. Schaeffer, the state superintend
ent, said that school directors were the
educational guardians of the children
I of the commonwealth, and that the
framers of the common law Intended
they should be the most unselfish' and
publio spirited of the citizens. The ser
vices of the character which school di
rectors gave to children, are of so lofty
a character that they could not be paid
for in money. Directors Bhould not be
elected on the basis of party, creed or
any secret society, but on the
basis of the man who can do
the best for the children or the com
munity. The most Important office that
he could conceive In this respect was
that of the school director. County
Superintendent Taylor, T, J. Jennlgs
and J. L. Stone made short addresses.

Charles L. Hawley, Prohibition can
didate for governor, was an interested
listener at yesterday afternoon's ses

The county Institute secretary's abil
ity as a mathematician is a recognized
fact, but some of the lady teachers

Miss Edmunds, Ph. D., of Strouds
burg State Normal school, is a "prairie
girl." She Is one of the highest types
of the "educated woman," and her
declamation of the "Prairie Love
Story" thrilled her audience. At its
conclusion Miss Edmunds suld: "I se
lected that piece as It Is necessary al
ways to understand the sentiment of
the reading, and I can see the prairie
scene at Texas clearer before my eyes
than I can see you before me today.
Many a time have I been dashing along
the wild wastes upon my spirited horse
and In the stampede should have been
dushed underneath the feet of the
frightened steers but for the instinct
of my horse which turned aside at the
right moment. There is a deeper mean

fore me the old scenes, which makes
the blood course quicker through my
veins as I repeat those lines."
