lienor: of Natioanl Convention.
Thi nresldine officer announced that
throueh the courtesy or M. u. uoianu,
of Scranton, who was' a delegate from
th Scranton union to the last national
convention at St. Paul, Minn., enough
of copies of the proceedings of the
national assemblage had been securea
to distribute among- the delegates. A
delegate made a motion to the effct
that an order be drawn on tne union
treasury to reinburse Mr. Boland for
the expense attendant upon the pur
chase and shipment of the copies, but
Mr. Boland arose and refused the oner.
J. Washington Logue, of Phlladel
phla, first vice president of the national
union, sent a telegram conveying the
information that he would reach the
convention this morning. Messrs,
O'Toole, of 6cranton, Carroll, of Car
bondale, and Mahon, of Scranton, were
appointed to receive him.
Secretary Mack read the minutes of
the various meetings of the board of
government held during the year, and
then read his own report. It set forth
that there are 4,930 adult male mem
bers representing 47 societies; 2,819
boys, representing 35 cadet societies;
and 165 members representing 4 ladles
societies, a total of 7,914 members In
The treasurer's report contained these
figures: Balance in the exchequer on
May 17, 1894, (851.24; receipts for the
year, $143.55; expenditures, $729.90; bal
ance now In treasurer's hands, $264.89.
Both reports were referred to the audit
President Devlne's annual address
was the next order of business. He
spoke off-hand and impromptu, and
withal be acquitted himself with
marked credit. After the usual open
ln remarks he impressed upon his
hearers one fact In relation to the
standing of the Scranton Diocesan
union. The speaker aald he has
traveled from Mauch Chunk to Forest
City among the temperance societies
embraced in that district and knows
that the movement la proceeding along
successful lines. The union is stronger
than any other embodiment of societies
in the Scranton diocese.
A desired tribute wus paid to Father
Melley for the goqd work he has done
during the two years of his spiritual
directorship. Mr. Devlne concluded by
urging the delegates to follow the ad
vice of Father Melley and not separate
temperance from religion.
That Old Trophy Troubles.
The matter of the trophies that the
St. Aloyslus slclety, of Plttston, re
fuse to give up, was taken up. A few
years ago the union purchased sets of
trophies valued at (150, which were set

Wllkes-Barro, and the Father Whltty
Pioneer corps, of Scranton, at a com
petltlve drill won the trophies, or at

Judges; the other Judge thought that
Plttston won, and on the strength of
the position held by the minority Judge
the Plttston society refused to urn the
trophy over to the Father Whltty so

the union upon the offlcers or the Pitts

society still refusing, the board of gov

C. G. Boland threw a lighted match
into the powder magazine when heasked
If the action of the board of govern
ment was constitutional in doing this
without the ratification of a two-thirds
vote. Air. Uoland was quite emphatic
when he said that the Plttston society
has been guilty of an act of Insubordl
nation that deserves to suspend it, In
fact to expel it If it does not recede
from its position of defiance.
Mr. Hurko on Constitution.
M. T. Burke, of Carbondale, read
from the constitution, showing that the
suspension of a society must be ordered
by a two-thirds vote of the convention,
The vote was put and the suspension
of the Plttston society was sanctioned
by the vote 51 In favor of and 4 against.
Although the Plttston society has
been suspended, It still retains posses-
slon of the trophies, and some of the
delegates favored entering proceedings
In court compelling the Pittstontans to
hand over the trophies.
No sooner had the storm cleared
away than the clouclB darkened again,
and ex-Mayor John Kelley, of Carbon-
dale, wa3 the mischief maker. He of
fered the following resolution:
'Resolved by the Catholic Total Ab
stinence union of the diocese of Scran
ton, In convention assembled In Car
bondale, May 15, 1896, that the expenses
of delegates to the national convention
of America to be paid by said diocesan
union shall be $2 a day for each dele
gate for no longer than five days, to
gether with car fare to and from home
on the cheapest route to destination."
Mr. Kelley preceded his resolution
with a speech about the extortionate
prices charged by certain delegates
who went under the pay of the union
and along with acting delegates they
had the pleasure of a Junketing tour,
as well, and charged It all up to the
account of the union. The resolution
was laid on the table by a vote 63 for
and 23 against.

Mr. McLean, of Scranton, suggested
that the pay of delegates be fixed at $2
per day and 2 per day for hotel fare.
together with car fare to and from
destination. This was amended and
finally amended that the bills of dele
gates be paid the same as under the
present custom. The way the delegates
are paid now they Itemize their car
fare, hotel fare and wages per diem,
and the bill is usually paid without a
It was against this custom that ex-
Mayor Kelley railed. A vote was taken
and the amendment was lost. A vote

conventions hereafter. It was carried
by a vote of la r ere proportions.

'llio Happy Molhci-l.nnd.
There Is something In this gathering
that reminds me that forty-seven years uso
tonight I was on the ocean crossing to
America and as I have never been back,
you can easily imagine that I do not know
much, personally, about Wales. But
though I have not been back In the body
I am very fond of going there in my mind.
Sometimes, as I gaze upon the map, I im
at; I no myself taking a tramp over Its
hills and through its valleys. I take a
roundabout Journey from Holyhead to
Cardiff, from thero to Llancarvan, and
thence straight up over Mt. Epyut, over
the highest point In Wales at Llanidloes,
then through the Bala, until I reach Llan
dudwn, in the extreme north. It has been
very unpleasant, thlB mental Journey, for
I fancied myself chanting with the Bhep
herd on the hillside, watching the men as
they held the plows and guided the teams
going with the quarrymen to dig for
slate in the mountains, and with tlie
miners to dig for iron, coal and gold In
the bowels of -the earth. I have entered
Into the churches and listened to the ferv
ent prayer and song of praise as they as
cended In unison to the throne of the Most
High. I did some eavesdropping at the
homes and I hoard the mothers sing the
children to Bleep with the dear old Welsh
melodies. I have stood entranced as my
ears have caught the sound of Cambria's
sons and daughters as they chanted tho
songs of piety and patriotism until the
echo rebounded from crag to crag, re
verberated ovorMhe mountains of Brcck-
cnshlre, leaped from the top of Plumllmon
to the top of Coder Idrls and ascended
over the highest peaks of Snowden to
swell In majestic cadence through the
vale of Clwyd In the north, to the Rhond-
da valley in the south. Was It any wonder
that I asked myself when I got through,
under the Impulso of a thrill of affection:
"Pa wlad wedl 'r slarad, sydd
Mar lan a Chymru lanydd?"
Following Mr. Lewis, R. H. Richards
delivered an address of welcome which
was full of reeling. He, In turn, was
followed by D. W. Meredith, who, in
excellent voice, sang "The Land of My
Fathers." air. Meredith's singing
elicited much applause. After a num
ber of addresses and songs, William 'R,
Lewis, of Scranton, was Introduced. He
spoke as follows:
Attorney Lewis' Address.
"These exercises are held, I understand
In connection with the session of the Grand
lodge of Ivorltes In this city. It Is us
Welshmen we meet here tonight to honor
tho chief officers of an organization com
posed of Wolshmen, an organization
founded for the purpose of charity; an
organization that cherishes thoughts of
that land where rest the remains of our
ancestors; an organization that inculcates
into the hearts of Its members a feeling of
deep veneration for that land of legend
and story, that land of song and poetry,
They want us to know Wales, and by
Knowing ii to love it.
"The history-making nations of the
earth have much to be proud of, but their
greatness has not been sufficient to ob
scure the dark and meretricious methods
adopted to secure their greatness. We
hear their people tell of their great mil
Itary achievements, their strategy, their
victories and their conquests, but not of
cities sacked and countries devastated
without Just cause. The methods of con
quering nations are seldom to be com
mended, and In their desire for glory and
conquest they detract much from their
claims to greatness and Justice.
Virtuous and Liberty -Loving.
"Seldom, If ever, the greed of conaunst
took possession of tho Welsh. While no
successful wars of any Importance were
waged by them, their history Is nevertho
less glorious and worthy of the attention
and study of Its people. From the glimpses
we catch of tho Welsh people's early hlu
tory we find them virtuous and liberty-
loving; w find them not levying tribute
whero no tribute Is due, waging war
against weak and defonseless nations to
rob thorn of their lands, nor hurrying
blindly and Impetuously at the call of
some haughty lord to resent some fancied
nsult. We find them resolutely and cour
ageously defending their ancient domains
against the relentless encroachments of
the Invader, fighting nobly in defense of
that greatest of human Institutions, their
homes. While Intensely religious, no St.
Bartholomew's Eve nor 800,000 massacre
blots the fair pages of their history, and
wherever civilisation spreads, becoming
more universal year by year, and driving
bigotry before It, that great and glorious
principle, "That every man has a right
to worship God according to the dictates
of his own conscience," was declared, and
fittingly so here on American soil, by thnt
great and good Welshman, Roger Will
iams. "The difficulty In procuring a hlstorv of
the Welsh has led many of our people to
bolleve that Wales provides In hor past
no material wormy or tne pen of the his
torian. It Is true that the Welsh fought
none of the decisive battles of the world.
While the history of a nation that waves
no foreign wars and seclks no conquests
Is but little known, It may be glorious.
We watch and admire the rose as it Is un
folded In Its beauty, but once It begins to
decay It ceases to interest us. So It Is
with nations. It Is the nation that ex
pands, that extends Its domains and makes
the history Of other nations a part of Its
own that excites the zeal of the historian.
The history of the conquered Is absorbed
In the history of the conqueror. Chaldean.
Babylonian, Macedonian and Roman his
tory successively became of minor Im
portance as the monarchies decayed. The
Welsh fought to retain, not to gain. Cen
tury after century they fought with vary
ing success; Inch by Inch they relinquish
ed their lands, until finally, after valiantly
resisting tne onsiaugnts or Roman, Saxon,
Dane, Norman and Englishmen, they suc
cumbed, but retained their Identity as a
nation. They fought so stubbornly that
their victors called them a brave nation.
"Territorial aggrandizement had no
charms for them. They fought for their
homes. The pursuits of peace had a
greater attraction for them. During the
Middle Ages, when the rest of Europe was
buried In Ignorance and darkness, there
flourished In Wales the eisteddfod, an In
stitution that has had a most salutary
and benlflcent effect upon us, producing,
as It has, a nation that acknowledges no
peer In the world of music, and It Is
much to our credit that we seek and have
sought for centuries our national recrea
tion, not In the debasing spectacle of the
tourney of old and the prize ring of the
present, but In oratorical contests, musi
cal competitions and m literature. Our
love of song has become proverbial. We
always loved and do love to sing. It Is as
natural to the Welsh as wit is to the
Irish. It bubbles out upon all occuslons
and in all places. Like Banquo's ghost,
it will not down. Our songs tell us of the
beautiful hills and valleys, our murmuring
brooks and wild torrents of Wales. They
breathe with the culm spirit of peace. Our
hymns fill us with a great and sublime de
votion. Our music Is of the heart.
"We know the past. What will the fu
ture unfold? Can tho future of a nation
with a past so glorious, so pure and Just,
be In doubt? With our ancestors remains
the past, with us and our progeny rests
the future. Inheriting, as we do, a love
of fair play, a love of home, a delight In
poetry and music, we ought to be found
up and doing. If our ancestors have re
tained so much of the past that is good and
noble, have accomplished no much with
tho limited opportunities of a conquered
people, how much more ought wo and can
we do. If not In Wales here In America,
with Its free Institutions, with the oppor
tunities it affords those that strive? Ev
erywhere signs are vlslblo among the
Weum of their recognition of the need of
education. They see that
lis education forms the common mind
Just as the twig Is bent, the tree's In
'No nation can be great unless it
schools and trains Its people. Educate
nd you will produce a nation worthy of
all praise. Educate not only the mind, but
the heart. Produce not only bright men
and women, but good men and women.
Little do we dream of tho possibilities in
men until the seed of knowledge Is sown,
The Need of Education.
I know and you know many men, and
there aro doubtless many here tonight,
blessed with remarkuble minds, men of
wisdom, of keen penetration and calm
Judgment, working for a mere pittance in
our coal mines, that, had they had an
early education, might have been a Lin
coln, a Mozart, a Kepler or a. Bacon. The
Welsh havo given to the world Robert
Morris, that financial and generous friend
of the American Revolutionists; Roger
Williams, the founder of religious liberty
In America; the Adamses, Chrixtmas
Evans and many others. Little Greece
produced her Aristotle, her Phoclon, her
Arlstldes, her Socrates, her l'hldias and
her Solon. Here In America, with its col
leges that Invite all who will to enter In,
and In Wales tho Welsh will awake from
their lethargy and with their aptitude for
the sciences and the art will produce a
galaxy of men who will reflect everlasting
lustre on the Welsh nation. With envy,
that curse of the Welsh, crushed, with a
desire to move onward and upward, our
future Is assured. Let our people give the
attention to education In future that they
have given to music In the past and they,
In the future, will give to the world a na
tion rrce, intelligent and-independent, a
nation prolific of great men, a nation that
will be found standing firmly and cour

Thy true sons In prose and rhyme.

With the spirit of the dead.

Barriers open; time has fled
And athwart my vision streaking.

Dreaded foe of tyrant Romo
Proud in heart, and still a Cymro
Though exiled from love and home.
Oh, Essyliwg! whence thy Borrow,
Tribulations deep and sore?
Thou, the robe of death muBt borrow;
