Government und Law.
There was a- time when public asso
ciations like the Young Men's Chris
tian association wore content to offer
only one or two main features for the
benefit of members. In the old days
the gymnasium and library furnished
the nucleus of the organization's ad
vantages. Whil" these functions still
exist, but ill an expanded and more
complete form, there have been added
many new things for theinstriiotion and
bcnellt of thousands of young men.
In the last ten years business has
changed In methods, politicians have
adopted now arguments, finance has
changed everything ncirs a. different
color, and the inclination nowadays Is
toward the practical order. To hold its
great prestige and power, has the
Young lien's Christian association
kept pace with the World at large? It
seems :o. llight here in Scrauton the
local association has for several seasons
shown its up-to-dateness In the way of
high grado entertainments; and Just
now there are preparations afoot for

Dalton will long remember the
glorious nn-ctlng of last evening which
the members of the Itallroad Young
Men's Christian association conducted
with such fervor and enthusiasm. It is
not to be wondered that Invitations
are pouring In from ministers In the
neighborhood begging them to assist In
carrying on the good work.
Yesterday's meeting was acknowl
edged to be the greatest success of all.
Alter tho afternoon meeting tit the
association rooms the boys sit down toa
tea which was provided In the social
room and passed the time In singing
the favorite hymns until Secretary

Sung With l'cror.
It would be easy to Imagine that this
corps of men continually engaged In
religious work would present u long
visaged nnd sour-faced exhortors, but
what u sad mistake such a conclusion
would be. No Jollier set of men could
be nn-t, as In the crowded car they
lustily sang the hymns which they have
sang at their numerous meetings. The
destination wns soon reached nnd these
"Soldiers of the Cross" trooped Into the
pretty Methodist Kplscopul church ut
Dalton to find that It would he a matter
of difficulty to accommodate all with
seats. Willing hands, however, soon
provided chairs and benches which
were placed In thu aisles, and after
Homo- necessary delay the meeting
opened by singing, "Wc Are Journeying
on to Ion." The manner in which the
sturdy railroaders attacked the chorus
made one .think of the old saying "that
the roof was not In a, safe place."
The question was then submitted,
"Why should a railroader be a Chris
tian?" The following took part In the
dlsousslon: ThomHS Parrot, F. W.
Pearsnll, Conductor Masters, Fireman
JSYalcy, Frank Glover, llev. J. It. Angel,
and many striking arguments were ad
duced. After this the meeting was
thrown open to discuss the second ques
tion, "Is It possible for a railroad man
to be u, Christian?" Immediately It
was announced there was a contest
among those In the audience to relate
their experience. One related how, In
the days of not long ago, trainmen
kept whisky In the cabimso w'here the
Bible now occupied the place. Another
related how, not long ago, an engineer
in the Dolmwnre, Lackawanna and
Western depot was offered a bottle of
whisky by a passenger, and taking the
bottle smashed It on the ground and
threw his arms around the passenger,
exclaiming: "Ood bless you, sir, give it

giving Its educational department the
beuelit of talks upon civil government
and law matters of in'.erest 'to young
men. The men whose services have
been solicited and given are among tin;
bet't known in the city, and this fact Is
weighty evidence of the worth of the
association which Is 'to be benelltled
They Would lie Impossible.
It is said unite truthfully that the
enormous business done by such v.'eli
known lyevum bureaus as Hedpath's
and the Star would be Impossible but
for the patronage, they receive from
Young Men's Christian associations.
Approximately, 1,000 of the associations
have lecture and entertainment courses.
To this fact Is due In part the ere.uHon
of lyceum bureaus. It then follows
that they depend for support largely
upon Ihe associations.

tion arranged for a course of si:: enter
tainments this winter. Three have been
given as follows: John Thomas Con
cert company, Nov. li'; The Mechlem's
musical entertainment. Nov. SG, and the
Tableaux d' Art company, of I loston, Dec.
4. The three entertainments to folh.vv
are: Leland T. Powers, In Dickens'
Christmas carols, tomorrow night; Tem
ple quartette, of I'.uston, Feb. 14, and
II. II. Itagan, in "Footprints of Wash
ington," March ". Kach of these at
tractions costs the association from $15
to Si'.lit, and yet tickets for the course
have been sold for Jl'.,"ii, about 4o cents
each f ir witnessing some of the best
things In today's lyceum amusement
world. In tills the association cmtiha
sizes Its position that it Is not giving
an entcrtainmenlcoursc to make money,
up; It will kill you in this world and In
the next." Another new convert stuted
that six months ago, despite the earnest
pleading !' a heart-broken wife, he
drank each evening to excess, but now
he had the happiest home in Scranton.
I xperience of Others.
A machine simp man, who was an
infidel four months ago. made a striking
address, and was followed by one who,
after leading a dissolute life which led
him into heavy debt, reformed two
years ago and was now it he happy pos
sc.'sor of Moo. The next announced that
a short time ago he was "Hill Nobody,"
but now he was "Hill Somebody," with
money where there was debf, and happi
ness irr place of poverty.
Another followed by declaring that It
was the happiest day of Ills life, as he
was celebrating the Ilrst month of his
Christian life, which had been a veritable
month of pureand unadulterated happi
ness. Several others related similar ex
periences, and It was with 'dllliculty
that tho meeting was brought to a close
The engine attached to the special cat

party scurried to their seats for the re

The next undertaking that tho boys
are going to place on Secretary Pear
Rail's shoulders Is the formation of a
singing Instruction class. They never
seem tired of singing the sweet Oospel
hymns, but a little tuition would insure
a marvelous change. "Where there's a
will there's a way," and Frank Glover
has plenty of will and thera Is plonty
of material. Secretary Pearsall Is the
man to show the way.
The accounts of the Delaware, Lacka

Addresses of practical Value.
Recently there appeared in The Trlb
uiie some information concerning the
educational classes. Additional im
portance might have been attached to
the article If It had contained the In
formation that ex-Judge Alfred Hand,
Joseph A. Scranton, Major Kverett
Warren. City Solicitor James H. Torrey
and others had been asked to address
the educaitlonal classes on civil govern
ment and municipal law. The associa
tion believes that a proper knowledge
of civil matters Is Just ns essential to
good citizenship as book learning. For
that reason the assistance of the
gentlemen mentioned and others lias
Among tliesiibjicts for discussion are:
"l'oroiigh Township and County (lov
ernnients," "Municipalities," "The
Commonwealth." "The National fiov
ernmeiit," divided into 'three talks
which will include the executive, the
legislature and the judicial branches.
Stated even so brielly and without
coloring an idea may lie had nf only
two features which the Scranton Young
Men's Christian association has or will
put in practice. How it does such a
work, or when- it gets its pecuniary
means, are questions which may be
discussed at another time.
