. Fuirs and Festivals.
iiB "SAYS THEY ARE DEBASING

Contrlbuto to Churches Through These
Affulrs-Torms Them Disciples of
Loaves and Fishes.
Rev. W. G. Watkins preached a ser
mon at the North Main Avenue Bap
tist church last night upon "Church
Amusements.", The reverend gentle
man bused his discourse on John 11.
13-18, and an initerestliiK Introduction
described the Journey of Christ from
Curm. to Jerusalem and his visit to the
Feast of Passover. He then drew a
vivid picture of the scenes of baiter
Biid selling of beasts which desecrated
the holy temple, and how Christ cleared
out th? venders and denounced them by
saying: "Ma,ke not my father's house
a house of merchandise," and applied
the Illustration to the proceedings of
the present day and said:
"In the mind of any one who believes
th Bible there can be no doubt as to
what Jesus did. The question is this,
"Which of these affairs, if any, that
ar held for amusement and money getting-
In pur churches are In nature like
the business which Christ condemned
and cast out? I believe many of them
The Chance Klctnent.
"I ask any of you to show me the
difference' between church chances and
the wheel of fortune as It is practised
by. the fakir or In the gambling den.
Kvery time you pay 10 cents to guess
what Is in the cuke, or buy a ticket
with a number on It, with the expecta
tion of 'getting the lucky number that
will bring you the prize, you take your
chances like' the man at the wheel or
at the card table. Only one but of the
whole number can be successful, all the
others paying money on expectations
that will never be realized. The church
and civil laws condemn gambling in
the world. What then makes It right
for the church H-self to gamble? I need
not take time to enumerate the fool
ish and disgusting forms of chance
work which churches practice. If Jesus
Christ should come he would certainly
cast out from our church uffalis the
element of chance.
"Of the business enterprises In the
church, I believe most would be con
demned. I know from observation that
many of them practice fraud. Seldom,
If ever, are they conducted on true
business principles. Who is there so
Innocent as to go to a church festival
expecting to get as much Ice cream for
10 cents as In an Ice cream parlor?
Gospel measure Is brimful, pressed
down and running over; but instead of
giving Gospel measure, the church fes
lval goes far below the standard of the
world's measure, otherwise there would
be too little money in it. Of course,
neonle will say it Is for the church, and
on that principle are Avllllng to pay 10
cents for hnlf-a-plate. Be It so, then
at best It is but half charity and the
other half Is fraud.
Disciples of Loaves and Fishes.
"Moreover, when an honest attempt Is
made to conduct the affairs on right
principles It evinces gross carnal tend
encies, for it means that those from
whom the church cannot eke money
except in lieu of a dinner or supper are
Justly entitled to the opprobrium vvhlcn
-V Christ hurled at nhoae of old, who roi'
lowed him simply because he fed them
with bread and fish, whoever since have
been stigmatized as 'disciples of loaves
"These affairs are also a deviation
from the original and divinely appoint
ed method of supplying the cause of
God, In the old Testament God called
upon the people to bring In their tithes
In the new Testament every one lay by
him in store as God has prospered him
Those represent the sources of the
church's revenue, and they indicate di
rect and free-will offerings and not
money gotten by barter. , It will not do
to say that this business is done for
aiding the church or is it Justified on
the principle that the end Justifies the
"Finally these affairs are subvertlvc
of the very aim and purpose of the
Christian church. They diminish the
spirituality of every church that pro
motes them, they lower the standard
of morality, they cripple the church In
its usefulness, and destroy its useful
ness for good in the community.
Debasing and Corrupting.
"I would not be austere, I would not
deprive young people of all pleasure,
but I do believe that these affairs In
churches are debasing and corrupting,
and that there ore other means and ex
ercises which the church may use for
the culture, development and profit of
Its young people and the enlargement
of Its own life.
AT ST. PETER'S CATHEDRAL
Close of One Mission and the Opening of
With a reception to the members of
the Blessed Virgin'8 sodnlity the young
ladles' mission of the cathedral ended
last night, and the mission for the
female members of the congregation
was bogun. Father. Bucholtz left on
i the midnight' train for Waterbury,
1 Conn., to "open a mission there. During
the week Father O'Reilly will conduct
the services, assisted by local priests.
The dally order of exercises will be
masses at 6.30, 1 and 8 a. m. Stations
of the cross after last mass each morn
ing, confesslonsmornlng and afternoon.
and a sermon each evening at i.su.
At 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon
Father Bucholtz preached to the
women of the parish upon a general
subject. Their duty is, he said, to say
their dally morning and evening
prayers, attend all religious services at
the church, hear mass regularly and go
to confessions and communion at the
proper seasons of the year. The
speaker took up the subject of the sac
rament of matrimony and said that a
prerequisite essential to happiness be
tween man and wife is the piety of the
latter. The husband was established
by God to rule over the household and
the wife must be obedient. Cleanliness
tidiness and habits opposed to extrava
gance are qualities in a woman' that
makes the husband love her and brings
happiness to the household. The sin of
unfaithfulness Is the most atrocious act
that a wife can commit, and many
temptations surround a married
woman. If she be truly rellgous God
will give her grace to withstand all
Mt these temptations. Woe to the parents
that do not exercise a proper care over
their children, because on the last day
God will demand an account of parents
for the lives of their offspring. Pee
that they beget a love for work, attend
to their education, send them to school.
and above all other things watch over
their religious teachings. After the
fiermon Father Bucholtz pronounced
benediction .and large numbers op
proached the sanctuary rail and were
Invested with the scapular. Religious
articles were blessed.
Reception of the Sodality.
The reception In. the. evening opened
with the singing of the hymn, "All Hail
Our Mother and Dear Queen," by the
sodallslts. After the Venl, Creator,
Father Bucholtz preached the sermon,
the subject being, "The Blessed Virgin
and the Sodality." The speaker re
ferred to the pure holy life of Mary,
she was always a virgin and never
committed any sin. She s upheld to
the members of the sodality because
she is the mother of our Redeemer. She
is the type of Christian morals and an
extraordinary means of grace. Catho
lics do not worship Mary but they im
plore her Intercession because her posi
tion in heaven as the mother of the
Trinity, since she Is the mother of the
second Person, enables her to bestow
favors which God grants through her.
She Is the model of Christian morality
and Bhould be imitated. She is not an
ordinary means of grace, such as the
sacraments, but her bounteous stores
of merciful intercession rendur her an
object that Is it worth our while to
honor. The speaker went on and de
scribed the life of Mary, her humility
above nil, and her deeply religious con
duct on this world. God Is. pleased to
Bee women imitate her und Is most
generous to those who ore devoted to
the mother of His only Divine Son,
The hymn, "Hull Holy Virgin," wn3
sung and next came the reception of
the postulants, 'over sixty of them.
This was a most Impressive ceremony
as they filed to the altar rail and re
ceived the badge of the sodullty. Be
sides the postulunts nearly eighty mem
bers were udmitted to full membership
in the society. They received their
badgus and the bleBtslng of the priest.
Following the reception the hymn,
There Is No Heart Like Thine Dear
Lord," was sung. Miss Mary Canavan
played the accompaniment , on the
organ. Then came benediction of the
blessed Bucramcnt, the chanting of the
Te Deum and. blessing of religious ar
ticles. HERO KING OF SWEDEN.
Ills Three Hundredth Anniversary Cele
brated by Lutherans.
Unusual Interest was attached to the
services at the Trinity English Lu
theran church yesterday when the three
hundreth anniversary of the birth of
Gustavas Adolphus, the hero king of

testantism, was celebrated.

Major Warren then described with
much eloquence the savage cruelty of

RESCUE MISSION WORK.
A Plea Made for Its Continuance in This
Yesterday largely attended meetings
were held In the city to further the
work of the Rescue mission on Frank
lin avenue. In the morning Samuel F.
Jones, of St. Stephen's Episcopal mis
sion, Boston, and others addressed a
large audience at Penn Avenue Baptist
church and in the evening Mr. Jones
spoke at the Elm Park church, where
he related his drunken career and his
conversion through the means of the
Rescue mission In Naw York city. He
concluded by making an eloquent ap
peal on behalf of the local mission in
which he said:
"It rests with this congregation if this
little lighthouse shall continue to shine
out a flight or not. It costs $500 a year
for a grog ahop, It only costs $3,600 to
conduct the mission, and yet there la in

ception of Sundays. It Is the only

MONEY FOR THE HOSPITAL
State Board of Charities Kill Rec
ommend That It Receive $75,000.
NEW BlILDIXG TO BE ERECTED
Present Women's Ward Altogether Unfit
for Purpose-It Will Be Replaced and
Later an Administration Build
ing Is to Bo Erected.
The State Board of Charities at Us
recent session decided to recommend
that the legislature of this state appro
priate $75,000 to the Lackawanna hos
pital. If this amount is allowed by the
law makers, and It is altogether prob
able that It will be, an addition to the
hospital will be constructed as soon as
the appropriation Is received. Speak
ing of the plans of the hospital authori
ties with regard to a new building
James Dickson, president of the board
of directors, said yesterday:
'The new building will be a women's
ward and will be erected on the north
erly side of the present old building,
after which the old building will be de
molished and an administration wing
erected on the site between the two
wards of the hospital." Speaking of
the present state of the hospital, Mr.
Dickson pointed out that the "women's
ward had been overcrowded for two
years, and that twenty-seven appli
cants for admisson had to be refused
lust month. At present two cots are
used rather than refuse the cases. The
present women's ward is one of the
oldest buildings in the city and en
tirely unBuitcd for the purpose, as it Is
continually getting out of repair, ren
deling the place uncomfortable for pa
Merits and nurses; -
No Accommodations for Nurses.
"There is no accommodation for
nurses In the building," continued Mr.
Dickson, "and we are compelled to send
them elsewhere. Thanks tothe liberality
of the Delaware and Hudson company
they are quartered at present in the old
office building at the foot of Franklin
avenue. The arrangement Is detri
mental to the success of the hospital
as the nurses should always be at hand.
"Not only are we In want of an ad
ministration building, but we have no
ward for contagious diseases, cases of
delirium tremens and others for which
an isolated ward Is essential. The hos
pltal also needs a suitable place for
stabling horses, as at present we are
compelled to pay $2 each time the am
bulance Is called out. Citizens of Scran-
ton can from this estimate to some ex
tent the disadvantages we are working
under and the difficulties that have to
be encountered dally."
Incidentally Mr. Dickson remarked
that the general public is not aware of
the enormous amount of work accom
plished In the hospital.
During the past twelve months pa
tients had been treated on a total of
18,000 days, adding together the number
of days devoted to each patient. This
had been accomplished at a cost of less
than $1 per day per patient. In add!
tlon to this a large number of outdoor
patients had been attended to. , Taking
the number of In-patients the ration of
cost, he believed, would be found lower
than any other similar institution In

said, had been endeavoring to Unpress

statitly In need of articles of every

cle we receive Is acceptable and can be
utilized. When the time comes to carry
out the alterations, we have figured the
matter so moderately that we must ask
the aid of our friends in completing the
structure, and Scranton will then, we
hope, have one of the best emergency
hospitals In the state.
BOARD OF CHARITIES WORK.
Colonel Boles Outlines What Was Done
at the Kcccnt Meeting.
Colonel II. M.'Boles, who attended the
recent meeting of the State Board of
Charities, of which he is a member
yesterday outlined the work done by
the board for a Tribune reporter. He
said that applications had been re
celved for state aid from 300 institutions
and that the board would ask the legls
lature to make appropriations to churl
ties amounting to $0,000,000.
One great feature during the hearing
of the cases was the question of ac
commodatlon for the Insane. The past
year showed a great Increase in the
number of insane, 530 persons having
been placed in various institutions as
compared with the average annual in
crease of 250. This, the colonel pre
sumed, could to some extent, be ac
counted for by the depression In trade
and the consequent Inability of people
to maintain their Insane relatives. The
question of the proper detention o
criminal and dangerous lunatics had
absorbed some portion of the time and
a new hospital would, In all probability
be erected In a central part of the state
and another hospital for the chronic
insane will be erected in the western
end of the state. Thirty-three Insane
criminal prisoners escaped, during the
lust three years because detained In
