THE MATTESONS EXPELLED.
They Are No Longer Members of the Ab-
inglon Baptist Assoclatlou-I'rococd-
ings Tukcn Yesterday.
At a regular meeting of the pastor's
conference of the Ablngton Baptist as
sociation held at the Penn Avenue
church yesterday morning, Rev. F. A.
Matteson, sr., and Rev. F. A. Matteson,
r.. of the Elmhurst Baptist church,
were expelled from the conference fur
alleged conduct unbecoming Chris
The younger cleric has for some time
assisted his father In the pastorate of
the Elmhurst Baptist church, but owing
to difficulties the pastor was compellud
to resign. It Is stated that disclosures
followed which convinced the congre
gation the Mattesnns were unworthy
of the charge. The honesty of the
gentlemen was Impugned and It Is al
leged that they were known to deviate
from the truth. The majority of the
members of the church determined to
dispense with their services, and their
eloquence Is no longer heard in the
Baptist church of Elmhurst.
The ministers of the conference de
termined to Investigate Into the ante
cedents of the Mattesons und the result
was that yesterday the whole history
was unfolded. It was sufficient to cun-
Ince the members of the conference
that It was best that the relations of
the Mattesons with the conference
should be severed.
The subjects of the discussion wer;?
not present, but the members felt no
hesitation In taking the bold and un
usual step of expelling them.
At the same meeting Rev. A. il
Brown, Rev. T. J. Collins and Rev. A
E. Douglus presented plans of sermons,
which were discussed and commended
by the members present,

Hcmcmbranucs of the Electric City with
Many of the delegates who came to
Scranton to attend the annual state
convention of the Young Woman's
Christian association left by the early
trains yesterday morning, and but few
were In the city yesterday afternoon.
Among the prominent visitors, Mrs. H.
M. Boles, the state chairman, enter
tained Dr. and Mrs. Carter, of Wlll-
lamsport; Mrs. C. L. Burtener, of York,
who was elected to preside over the
convention; Mtas Phillips and Miss
Stack, of Philadelphia, and Miss Ryan,
of Willlamsport. Mrs. E. H. Ripple
also had several guests, Including Mrs,
Dr. Wood, of Lancaster; Mrs. Kruss, of
York; Miss Maynall, of Meadvllle, and
Miss Peck, of Factoryville. Rev. and
Mrs. Charles E. Robinson entertained
Professor Gllmore, of Rochester; Miss
Hays, of Pittsburg; Miss Eva A. Wal
lace, of Pittsburg; Miss M. E. Le Levre
and Miss Martin, of Lancaster. Mrs
E. P. Kingsbury entertained Miss Sara
Kirk and Mrs. Baugh, of West Chester,
Scranton never entertained a conven
tion more handsomely than this one.
Every hostess made her guests feel at
home, showing thus a graceful nnd
gracious courtesy, which can and does
reside only In cultured and refined
Christian hearts. Every guest has gone
to her home to sound the praises of the
city and Its generous and good people,

The programme was carried out In
full, and a great impetus must result
from the educative quality of the ad
dresses and the practical discussions
that filled the sessions. No warmer
welcome was given by any than that
by the ministers who helped by their
presence, their prayers, their hearty
greetings, their earnest sermons, and
most of all, by so cordially Inviting the
leading workers to speak In their pul
pits. No city in the union can boast of
a more cordial, cultured clergy than
that of the Electric City.
No International convention ever had
the audiences, session after session
that Inspired the speakers by their
numbers, at the late convention. The
state committee will show a far better
report next year than this, because of
the encouragement and financial sup
port which will enable It to carry out
Its plans for extension In schools, col
leges and cities.

agent and his business taken away
from him, In consequence of which he
suffered great loss.
