STATE COUNCIL MEETING
Delegates of Senior Order of Ameri
can Mechanics in Session. '
THEIR WELCOME TO THIS CITY
After Transacting a Gront Deal of Bunt'
ncss During tho Day tho Visitors
Were Entertained with a Concert
and Banquet at Night.' ,
Questions of the greatest Importance
were dicussed at yesterday's sessions
of the stale council of the order of
Senior Aemrzlcan Mechanics. The re
ports of the stuto council officers and
committees were submitted und re
forred to specially appointed commit'
tees, who will present their reports
upon the same In due course.
The report of the state councillor was
a most complete and ably written
article und doult In a very satisfactory
STATE COUNCILLOR R. M. JOHNSTON
manner with the Innumerable matters
which hnd engaged his attention during
his term of office.
The whole of the reports, which are
very comprehensive, were favorably
commented upon, as Indicating a steady
growth In the numbers and Influence of
This morning the session will open nt
8 o'clock, and the mont Important fea
ture will be the election of officers. J.
M. Hornbaker, of this city, Is a candi
date for the office of state vice coun
cillor, and his election was unanimously
predicted last night.
P.occodings of the Business Sessions of
Mayor Connell was unable, owing to
Illness, to deliver the address of wel
come to the delegates attending the
fottty-ninth annual session of the
Senior Order of United American
Mechanics, which held its first business
meeting yesterday morning at the An
cient Order United Workmen hall, on
Lackawanna avenue. In the mayor's
absence, M. K. Kdgar, his private secre
tary, welcomed the delegates In felici
tous terms, and expressed a hope that
their visit Ito the city would be attended
with much pleasure to them individu
ally and with great benefit to the order.
A. B. Saybolt, the stt organizer,
delivered an excellent response as fol
lows: "Mr. Chairmen and Gentlemen rep
resenting the city of Scranton: As the
representative of the State Council of
Pennsylvania, O. V. A. M., it affords
me much gratification to extend to the
citizens of Scranton, through you, our
hearty thanks for the kind and cour
teous treatment that our members have
received on every hand since coming
Into your bustling city. They have
seemed to vie with one another In mak
ing us welcome. Our order, while known
by the name of .Mechanics, Is not, as
that name may imply to many, an or
ganization composed exclusively of me
chanics and artisans. Men of all pro
fessions, vocations and business life are
found In our council rooms. The man
who labors with his brain as well as
with his hands finds welcome. We have
come among you as an order whose
membership Is composed exclusively of
men of native birth but we desire to
Impress upon your citizens that while
our order limits Its membership to one
nationality that there Is nothing In the
work or objects of our order that
teaches us to prosoribe the man of for
eign birth. We welcome with oppn
arms the man who, fleeing from oppres
sion and misrule in his mother country,
and with a desire to better his condi
tion and enjoy the Blessings of civil
liberty, comes among us with the in
tention of becoming one of us, of adopt
ing our language, our customs, and
living In consonance with our laws.
All Should Ho Welcomed.
Here Is room for the countless mil
lions, and the people of every clime
should be welcomed In order that our
country, with Its immensity of area,
should be properly developed. But we
are unalterably opposed to that class
of emmlgration that comes among us,
whose sole object is mercenary gain,
who, believing that liberty Is license
to do as they please, have no regard for
our laws, or the sanctity of the Amer
ican Sabbath that class whose low and
degraded condition and habits of life
tend to lessen the dignity of labor, and
destroy the remunerative value of the
labor of the American worklngman.
And although our membership Is com
posed entirely of native Americans we
desire to emphatically Impress upon
your citizens this fact that the Senior
Order of United American Mechanics
Is neither sectarian.' nor political.
Men of all shades of religious
and political opinion meet in our
council rooms, and transact the busi
ness of the order without discussion of
either of these subjects. We are taught
to believe that every man has the right
to worship God according to the dic
tates of his own conscience, but we
do teach the principle that church and
state Bhould ever be divorced, believing
that a union of both Is Inimical to the
interests and the perpetuity of our
blood-bought institutions. We feel that
the man born upon our soil who has
been rocked, as lit were, In the cradle
of independence who knows hl8 coun
try as none other can know her, who
loves his country as none other can love
her, and who has an Interest In her fu
ture welfare, that is nearer, truer, and
far more deeper than all mankind be
side, is best fitted to assume the reins
of government and legislate for the
Interests of his fellow American citi
zens. We teach our members to be in
terested in each other's welfare, to se
cure each other employment, to en
courage each other In business, to care
for the sick and afflicted, and care for
their widows and orphans. These, gen
tlemen, are the primary objects of our
order. And again, in conclusion, let me
reiterate the thanks of this state coun
cil for your kind welcome and the priv
ileges of the city you have bo kindly
At the conclusion . of .Mr. Saybolt'

The time was approaching. Sept. 10,
1X96. when the celebration of the fiftieth

DIVERSION OF EVENING.

After a hard day's work In discussing
reports of various departments and
other routine business the delegates
were glad to avail themselves of the
Invitation to attend the vocal and In
strumental concert which was held in
the Young Men's Christian Association
hall by the Columbian Mandolin, Banjo
and Guitar club, under the direction of
R. W. Neubauer. The club, which Is
rapidly advancing In public favor, gave
the following selections: "Fantasia,"
by Chenet; "Belle of New Tork," and
Miss Llda Garagnn, the popular so
prano, sang "La FloraJI," and, with
Ernest Croft, gave the duet "I Pesca-
torl." Miss Mame Jordan, who has a
sweet contralto voice, sang "O Promise
Me" to the delight of the crowded
house. Instrumental selections were
also given by members of the club, all
of which were accorded the heartiest
plaudits of the audience Miss Jemima
C. Jones recited various selections with
great cleverness and was rewarded by
The principal event of th evening,
however, was an address by A. B. Soy
bolt, ex-state councillor, v. ho, in hu
merous terms, apdogizcl . that upon
such a warm nb;ht and In the midst of
such a fine programme, ho should be
compelled to lnflbt an address upon
them. He was, however, glad of the
opportunity to present to them the ob
ject, alms and purposes of the Order
of United American Mechanics. The
objects were, not only in the interest
of the men, but of their wives and chil
dren also, and affected the future desti
nies of ithe orphans of their members.
Mr. Saybolt drew a brilliant ploture of
the love of country which permeated
the breast of every man, and illustrat
ed the love of the Irishman for the
Green Isle, the Frenchman for his gay
Paris, but Americans loved their coun
try because they had been rocked,
metaphorically speaking, In the very
cradle of independence, and here they
found men from every clime enjoying
the blessings of liberty. After de
scribing in most eloquent terms the
sentiment of a patriotic American, he
said that H was with those feelings
that the Mechanics represented the native-born
of this country end banded
together for the perpetuity of the insti
tutions of the country.
First Ohjeet of the Socloty.
The first object of the society was to
secure employment for each member,
and to establish a sick and funeral
fund. They also Endeavored to aid
the Incapacitated member. The society
also endeavored to protect the Indus
tries of tho country as far as possible
from foreign competition. They also
gave similar benefit as other similar
secret beneficial socltles, and they were
careful In establishing entrance fees
and weekly dues as low as possible, and
yet grant as much support to members
as was consistent.
. In Pennsylvania, however, their order
hnd suffered considerably, as In the
time of the rebellion many members
offered their lives upon the altur of
duty to their country.
Speaking of the name of the order
he explained that it was not confined
to mechnnlcB, and wag not aflilluted

present day; men of all vocations, me
chanics of the brain and mechanics of
the hand, gathered in their councils,
and whllo it was confined to those of
Amerlcnn birth no sectarian or politi
cal Influences were tolerated. Men of
all political parties gathered In their
councils, but they restricted the mem
bership to men born on the soil, ns they
believed that Buch men, filled with the
love for their country, were best adapt
ed to hold the reins of government.
They Welcome tho Immigrant.
As an organization they welcomed
the foreign immigrant who was pre
pared to uphold the best Interests of
this great country, but they objected to
those who were the outpourings of tho
jails, almshoiiHes and pauper houses of
Europe, who were forced upon this
country; men who could not speak the
language of the country and had un
pronounceable names, and were called
by numbers to be distinguished. They
were men who brought over large fami
lies and herded them together In small
rooms like cattle and sheep, nnd yet
such were the men who came over to
enter Into competition with the Ameri
can workman, and whom the order
strenuously objected to.
In conclusion Mr. Saybolt drew atten
tion to the advantages of the order In
its military department, the daughters
of liberty and their system of benefit
insurance, and In eloquent language
urged those of native birth to take ad
vantage of the facilities offered.
The following were the committee of
arrangements who made the prepara
tions for the concert: John M. Horn
baker, chairman; William H. Coons,
secretary; John W. Warner, Ira O. Ives,
Joseph Compton, S. M. Sloat, H. M.
Beam, J. W. Adams, F. L. Swartz. B. O.
Alt, John T. Wldenor and John W. Ed
Inger. At the conclusion of the concert the
delegates adjourned to Caryl's restaur
ant, on Linden Btreet, where covers
were laid for 130 guests. An excellent
and choice menu was laid and the
guests enjoyed themselves thoroughly
at the well-loaded tables. Rare flowers
and Easter lilies were placed In profu
sion nn the tables.
After supper A. B. Saybolt was called
upon to preside and an Informal pro
gramme was arranged, which was
opened by Edward Noppel, who gave a
humorous recitation of a French inci
dent, which caused roars oflaughter.
W. H. Coons, as representing the local
councils, made an excellent speech. In
which he referred to the pleasure af
forded the local councils In entertain
ing such an honored body as the state
The Mechanics of Scranton had been
fully alive to the honor conferred by
them In selecting this city for the con
vention of 1S95, and they had all striven
to make their guests comfortable, and
to render their visit pleasant and one
which would, he hoped, be brimful of
reminiscences of a happy time. Such a
gathering of experienced and intelli
gent men would conduce to greater
energy and consequent success In the
local councils, so that the result of
their vlst would be lasting. Recitations
were delivered by Walter Graham and
Edward Pastorlus, and the proceedings
terminated with a speech by J. M.

BEEN TRIED SUCCESSPULIY
Appeal That Is Mode to the Public to
Assist In Carrying Out This Plan
of Furnishing Work for
A meeting of the Board of Associated
Charities last night decided to put In
operation the New York plan for the
"Cultivation flf Vacant Lots by the Un
employed." The following open letter
signed by Colonel E. H. Ripple, presi
dent, and Rev. Hogers Israel, secretary,
Indicates the appeal for vacant lots nnd
funds necessary to carry on the work:
To the public:
The bonrd of associated charities, In
response to the needs of the day, and
In accordance with the experience of
many other cities, is prepared to take
the Initiative in providing work for the
unemployed by means of the cultivation
of vacant lots. iMany ftVedy have been
made Independent, taxes reducted and
benevolent Individuals saved expense
nnd a weeding out of unworthy appli
cants have been accomplished by this
The bonrd therefore appeals for the
use of vacant lots In and upon the
outskirts of tho city, and for money to
purchase implements, seeds, etc., for
this purpose. Itesponses In money mny
be made to W. T. Smith, treasurer;
communications giving size nnd loca
tion of lots to itev. Uogers Israel, secre
tary. We nlso deslro those who will avail
themselves of this opportunity to pro
vide provisions for the coming fall and
winter, to attend in person and make
application for the use of such lots at
the ollloe of the board of associated
charities, municipal building, . any
morning from !) to 12 o'clock. Imme
diate notion Is urged, ns tho work of
planting must be begun at once to be
successful. K. II. nipple, president.
Uev. Uogers Israel, secretury.
Details of the Plan.
A recent Issue of Tho Tribune con
tained a detailed description of the
vacant lot plan. Briefly, It Is for the
purpose of helping the unemployed to
sustain themselves; t abates the tramp
nuisance, relieves charitable institu
tions, reduceB taxes and aids many
needy and deserving persons who do not
ask for money. In New York the cost
of the plan has been less than $3,000.
It Is claimed that families can provide
enough vegetables for fall and winter,
and In many cases garden stuff may be
raised for sale.
The plan was brought to the nttentlon
of the board by' a letter received by
Mayor Council from Bolton Hall, secre
tary of the committee which last year
adopted and put In successful operation
the plan In New York. This letter, and
an accompanying explanatory circular,
was read by Secretary Israel last night.
President Hippie briefly spoke of the
Importance of tho matter and snld the
plan seemed likely to solve a diffi
culty which had attended the efforts of
the board for a long period. It was
upon tho motion of R. J. Lynctt that the
foregoing appeal was Issued.
Following a discussion of some length
It was decided to try to bring the move
ment to nn issue at once" owing to the
proximity of the close of the planting
season. It was stated that crops plant
ed by or soon after June 1 will yield
satisfactorily. The small amount of
funds In the board's treasury make It
Inexpedient to use them for the vacant
lot plan, hence the public appeal.
