Traction Company and Boulevard Com
pany Have Come to an Agreement About
Grading of Mulberry Street.
Today an important contract will
be signed between the Scranton Trac
tion company and the Elmhurst Boule
vard company whereby the former is
to extend its Nay Aug Falls line out
Mulberry street and along the Boule
vard to within 200 feet of the new
bridge over Roaring Brook.
During the Archer regime the Trac
tion company formed an agreement
with the Lackawanna Iron and Coal
company which bound the Traction
company to open and grade Mulberry
street to Arthur avenue for the privi
lege of laying its tracks on Mulberry
street and Arthur avenue to Its present
terminus at Nay Aug Falls. Mulberry
street is the only desirable approach to
the Boulevard and during the building
af that thoroughfare nd since its com
pletion efforts to Induce the Traction
company to put Mulberry street in pass
able condition have failed until now.
The Traction company under its agree
ment with the Lackawanna Iron and
Coal company had two years to do the
work and the hitter's request added to
that of the Boulevard people that the
company open the street were without
effect. In the meanwhile, access to the
Boulevard was obtained only over the
roundabout route through Petersburg
and over the roadbed of the old gravity
The present agreement provides that
the Traction company shall put Mul
berry street In condition for vehicle
trafllc at once. Tracks will not be laid
until open weather next spring, al
though the Traction company will bind
Itself to erect poles and wires at once
and maintain electric arc lights at fre
quent intervals to the bridge and a
cluster of lights at each end of the
structure. It is expected that the
lighted approach will ilnduce a large
sleighing traffic over the Boulevard at
night during the winter.

Event This Keck.
WHAT HAS BEEN DONE IX FAST
Congregation lias Been Steadily In
creased Since the New Church Was
Dcdlcnted-Thoso Who Will Take
Part in the Services.
An event In the religious history of
Scranton will be the celebration this
week of the first anniversary of the
dedication of Elm Park church, an edi
fice which has been JUHlly termed the
'pride of Scranton." Standing as it
does in the foremost ranks of church
architecture in the city it has much
which endears it to the people of Scran
ton and the story of its erection and
destruction by fire upon two occasions
forms an Interesting chapter in the his
tory of our city.
The history of the church from Its
organization Is deeply interesting. The
original church of the congregation
stood on Adams nvenue and was built
in 1S42 at a cost of $500. At the time
it was called "Tho Village Chapel," and
while under the supervision of the
Methodists was used by other evun
gellcal denominations as a place of
worship. The ministers who otlicluted
In the "Village chapel were Revs. Will
iam RoVd, E. Owens, Ira Wilcox, John
D. Staf Vd, John Mulkey, O. F. Morse
and 11. ? Williams.
A More Imposing Church.
In 1855 work was begun on the brick
church un Adams avenue, nnd in about
a year the basement was completed.
Since that date the following ministers
have served the church In the order
mimed: Revs. A. II. Schoonmaker, Dr.
(leorge Peck, B. W. Gorham, George C.
Bancroft, J. V. Newell, J. A. Wood, N.
W. Everett, B. D. Sturdevunt, J. C.
Nobles, Philip Krohn, George P. Porter,
J. T. Walker, L. C. Floyd, J. G. Eckman,
Dr. J. K. Smith, C. P. Masdon, L. C,
Mullor, Dr. J. E. Price, C. C. McLean
and Dr. W'. 11. Pearco. Four hundred
dollars and a donation worth at least
$100 was the lowest salary paid since
1854 and $3,000 the highest. In 1879 the
Adams avenue brick church was en
larged and beautified at a cost uf about
$12,000 and the reconstructed edifice
dedicated In Junuary, 1880.
The Elm Park plot was purchased in
March, 1891, as the site for the present
church, ait a cost of $30,000, and the Inci
dents of the fires by which the church
was twice destroyed are so fresh upon
the public mind that a repltltlon is un
A total of $:10C,000 have been spent
upon the present church and the two
buildings which were destroyed. The
dedicatory services were held on Dec. 7
to 17, 1893, since when the regular set''
vices have been conducted with marvel
ous success. The congregation is eon
Membership of the Church.
The church has at present a member
ship of over 800, a Sunday school of 700
scholars and an Epworth league with
an aittendunce of 500. The Women's
Home Missionary society with a mem
bership of 110 does excellent and noble
work among the poor and the Women's
Foreign Missionary society of 150 strong
is instrumental in raising a substantial
offering annually to further the work of
missions aibroad. The organization of
tha King's Duughters, which has 12
members, each one of whom Is pledged
to render Christian service, is doing very
effectual work in a quiet manner. The
Literary and Scientific society with
membership of forty young men is also
of great value as being the means of
affording instruction to the younger
members of the church.
During the past year 250 new mem
bers have been admitted into the
church, the Sunday school has doubled
its membership and the revenue of the
church has Increased two-fold within
the short period of twelve months.
The anniversary services will com
prise many functions of a social as well
as a religious nature. Tomorrow even
ing meeting of the members and their
friends will be held, when William Con-
nell, president of the board of trustees;
W. A. May, secretary of official board:
O. F. Reynolds, secretary of board of
trustees, and William H. Peck, treas
urer of church funds, will deliver brief
addresses on the following subjects:
"Th Yesterday and Today of Method
ism in Our Midst," "Lights and Shad
ows In Elm Park Life," "The Possibili
ties of Elm Park Church" and "The

ary dinner will be served and supper
