The Board of Associated Charities
held a meeting last night, which was
very Interesting. The treasurer's re
port shows a balance In the treasury at

resignation was read, but "further con

present, expecting that Mr. Moore may"
be persuaded to recoisider his deter

usefulness as a member of the board
could not be spared.

lectured in the Young Men's Christian

I wish to compliment the Scranton
Tribune for the very excellent report of
my address, and I must say that the" re

The Times said that I advocated the
abolition of outdoor relief, compelling all

That charity In such a case wore a wintry

Indeed present a wintry aspect, but I have

homes by such kindly methods as may
preserve their self-respect, but I think
such assistance can be better given by
benevolent societies than by county or

leal leaders, and seldom feel any deep Hi

My opinion Is not the result of prejudice
but of long and close observation; for I
am myself a city orllclal. The reporter'
misunderstanding of my position was
probably due to my using the phrase, "out

I did advocate the discontinuance of this
kind of relief, but only with a view of
substituting for It relief given by benevo

Attorneys Colborn and Watson, who
