ROW IX STATE BALL LEAGUE.
Secretary Diddlcbock Dances Out of the
Meeting in High Dudgeon-Zerr Will
Tight the Organization.
By the United Press.
Reading, Pa., Dec. 12. A stormy meet
ing of the base ball magnates of the
Pennsylvania State league clubs was
held at the Central house, this city, this
afternoon and evening. It was said to
be a special conference meeting, the
special object being to form a circuit
for next season.
President John J. Hanlon, of Hazle
ton, occupied the chair und Secretary
Dlddlebock, of Philadelphia, was on
hand with the minutes. After he had
proceeded to read them. President Han
lon said that this was the animal meet
ing. Secretary Dlddlebock denied this.
He snld that it was a special meeting
and that the constitution provided that
the annual meeting should be held In
January. A lively war of words fol
lowed In which harsh language was
used, accusations being made thuA some
one was not telllng'the truth.
It ended by Dlddlebock saying, "Well,
I'm done with you," as he took up his
papers and walked out.of the room.
Manager Randall, of the Philadelphia
club, coincided with him and marched
out also. The meeting then proceeded
with its regular business. President
John J. Hanlon was then elected secre
tary and treasurer In addition to his
present position and tils annual salary
fixed at $1,000. Allentown was admitted
as a member In place of Philadelphia.
The other clubs recognized as mem
bers of the league are: Pdttsvllle, Lan
caster, Hazleton, Harrisburg, Shenan
doah, Ashland and Reading.
It was decided to usk the National
league protection and a telegram to
that effect waa sent to President
Young. Just before adjournment Oar-
bondale and Easton were admitted
making It a league of ten clubs. Mann-
ger Zerr, of Reading, was very much
chagrined over his loss of the Reading
franchise which was given to W. A.
Whitman, and as he walked out of the
room gave notice that he was going to
light t'hls league.
Manuger Randall stated that today
meeting was a gross violation of the
constitution. A meeting will be hold at
the regular time the first Monday In
January in Philadelphia nnd a league
will be organized composed of Philadel
phia and the best base ball cities In
Manager Zerr will organize a rival
club in this city, but whether it will be
a mpmber of the proposed Interstate
league, or the new Schuylkill Valley
league, is not known. At certain stages
of today's meeting considerable bad
blood wus developed.

William Connell Speaks of the Work
' Done Forty Years ago. .
CONTRASTED WITH TRESENT
Added Responsibilities Huvc Come with
the Great Increase of the Church in
Numbers and Influence-Other Ad
dresses Heard Lust Night.
An enthusiastic meeting was held last
night In the Elm Park church lecture
hall to celebrate the first anniversary
of the church. Rev. Dr. Pearce con
ducted the opening services and called
upon Mr. Davlea, one of the oldest mem
bers of the church, to offer prayer. The
pastor then explained that to make
themselves happier and remove the re
straint of set speeches the meeting
would be Informal, with brief addresses
from the church officers. He called upon
William Connell, president of the board
f trustees, to uddress them upon "The
Yesterday and Today of Methodism In
Mr. Connell, after congratulating them
upon the auspicious occasion which
they were celebrating after the sad
recollections of the difficulties in the
past, said: "The 'yesterdays' of Meth
odism of forty years ago were very
different to the 'today' of Methodism In
many respects. While those of today
are Indebted to a great extent to the
thodlsts of forty years ago, there are
many who have a ihablt of saying that
the latter days are better than those
early days. The men of the early days
were heroes who made sacrifices the
younger portion of our churches today
oannot properly appreciate and know
very little of. I could, with a pretty
distinct recollection, go back sixty
years In the history of the Methodist
ause, but of thirty-eight years I am
able to speak with clearness.
Methodism of the Past.
"It is thirty-eight years since I came
into the Lackawanna valley and lo
cated at Taylor, then called Lacka-
wunna, where I worshipped in the little
hurch which was known as the Union
chapel. The Methodist churches of
Hyde Park, Taylor nnd the Hiirk church
were then served by one minister who
preached to us at Taylor alternately
with the other churches. These mem
ories bring to my mind that we had to
walk a mile to attend service, and on
one occasion, -when we Iliad praer
meeting In the forenoon, there were
only two of us present, and I said to
my friend, 'Well, there are enough of
us to claim the promise,' and we ac
cordingly held a prayer mooting, and I
well recollect what a good time we had.'
"This naturally brings me lo my sub
ject, the eaiily days of Methodism.
Many things were differently conduct
ed In those days. We had the delight
ful class meeting, which has now al
most gone out of date, although we
have other services which, to a large
extent, supplant It, but no other service
can supply the place of the old-
fashioned Methodist class meeting. It
was the family place of the church.
where all anxieties and cares were
made known. In our present day meet
ings, when men stand promiscuously,
we cannot understand each other so
well and receive the same sympathy
as In the old .days when we always
went home from the class meeting
huppy and glad.
People More I.lhcrul Now.
"I well remember the difficulties of
those days. We had great work to
collect the salary of the minister, who
received $300 altogether from the three
places. Today the members of our
churches are more liberal, more gen
erous; they see their duties to religion
more clearly than they were seen thirty
years ago. They have been taught to
give now. It was, however, the noble
sacrifice of those men who preached
the Gospel In the early days, that has
preserved and given us the Methodism
"Tho history of Methodism here
abouts has been one of steady and con
tinuous growth. The number of
churches when I came here was but
four, Including the Baptist church; now
within the same boundary we have
fifteen Methodist churches and eleven
ministers. Methodism has kept up
with the times, and maintained pace
with the growth of population. It has
more than Increased In wealth accord
ing to the Increase of population.
"Twenty-five years ago I came to
Scranton and Joined the old Adams
Avenue church. I am sure you will not
think I have any desire to belittle the
small place in which we worshipped,
but some of us can well remember
the dingy little room. We were very
democratic there, as we had no carpet
and very uncomfortable benches. How
ever, we progressed until carpet and
chairs adorned the room nnd, best of
all, the ladles Introduced the "soclula"
consisting of coffee and sandwiches as
refreshments, which, In Xthose days,
formed the Introduction to the delight
ful suppers and sumptuous feasts
which we enjoy In this church so fre
quently. Have Added Responsibilities.
Of the trials und difficulties from the
Adams church to the Elm Park church
I will not speak, us they are familiar to
so many of you, but in all the growth
It Is gratifying to see so many good
Methodists who always make good citi
zens, und here I wish to Impress a point
With this great growth comes great
responslbllltes. In the early days the
members and preachers were heroes
who struggled and battled, and as n
result of their energy and patience have
handed down to you a heritage and an
obligation. Think of It. The Mefhodlsts
of these days, with all the advantages
ought to accomplish more work.
"This church with Its young people's
associations and their auxiliaries have
a power which did not exist at all in
those days. With all these advantages
of the present day we ought to realize
our responsibilities to the fullest extent
Elm Park church, you may rest as
sured, will be expected to render ten
talents for the live which have been
given to her. Here Is the Epworth
league and other societies, which 'have
such great responsibilities. When much
Is given, much is required, -ana nod re

hath God wrought.' "
Mr. Connell concluded with practical
advice to the young people as to fheir
duties, and to prepare themselves to
carry on the work of the church when
they, were, called to supply the places
of the present leaders and officers.
Captain W. A. May spoke upon
"Lights' and Shadows In Elm Park
Life.", Among the lights were the hand
some donations given to them in their
difficulties, the shadows are the pen
nies in their collections. Another light
was the great cordiality In their church.
"Like preacher like pastor" and their
cordiality was soon accounted for. The
Epworth league, their . magnificent
church, their lurge congregation, their
splendid music, their grand organ were
Work of tho Voting People.
G. F. Reynolds, in ppeuking of the
"Possibilities of Elm Park Church,"
spoke of the social aspect and the work
of the young people's societies. The In
crease In the church membership dur
ing the past year had been phenomenal.
W. H. Peck gave very practical hints
in his address on "The Young Element
as a Factor of Power in the Church."
During the evening the Epworth
League chorus and also the male choir
under the direction of George F. Whlt
temore, sang some excellent choruses.
Mr. Wooler rendered suitable solos In
his well known style. Rev. Dr. Penrce
made several interesflng addresses dur
ing the evening, bearing especially upon
the incidents connected with the church
during his pasturute.
