Pavilion Was Crowded.
The great pavilion was crowded and
the audience Joined heartily In singing
"America." under the direction of Tallle
Morgan, W. H. Stanton playing the
cornet.' The Bcranton Young Men's
Christian association Glee club sang
a number of selections, which were en
thusiastically applauded. W. C. Weed
en, of New York, sang a number of se
lections,! and his fine baritone voice
never showed up to a better advantage,
Ml.oa Elsie Vandervoort, of New York,
sang a number of songs In a rich con
tralto voice. She Is by far one of the
finest singers that has ever appearea in
these reunions.

h anpaker of the day. was expected
on the noon train, but his non-arrival
caused the manager no end or anxiety.
A train was due from New York at 1.50,
on, i it was confidently expected he
would appear on that train. While
waiting for this train, Charles L. Haw
ley, of Bcranton, was called upon, and
he delivered a ringing address on the
need and power of the news
paper press In Prohibition work. His
practical remarks were frequently ap
Mr. llnsaa Had the Floor.
t, i Kft tmln arrived and Woolley
was not on board. Tallle .Morgan, the
manager, said he would telegraph to
different points In the hope of locating
him. Rev. J. C. Hogan was caiieu uiiu.i
and the well-known Prohibition flre
aaiiPd into the old party preach
ers and church members without
gloves. Several persons arose In the
audience with the purpose of contra
dicting some of the statements made
by Mr. Hogan. but it was or no uue.
Mr. Hogan had the floor and he was
permitted to proceed until Mr. Morgan
entered and announced that he had suc
ceeded in locating Mr. Woolley in
Wllkes-Barre and that he had made ar
rangements to have him brought to the
park on a special engine. Tne run rrom
Wllkes-Barre to Mountain park was
made In less than fifteen minutes, and
the appearance of Mr. Woolley was the
signal for tremendous cheering.
Mr. Woolley Is a man of medium
height, dark hair and eyes, with a face
that expresses Intense feeling and un
flinching determination. He speaks
without a single scrap of paper before
him, and for one and a half hours he
swayed this great audience like a reed
before the wind. His theme was "Pow
ers," and the manner he showed the
position of the individual Christians of
the land on the liquor question was
such as carried the deepest conviction
Into every heart. He said that truth
was truth under all circumstances and
In every place. There was no such a
thing as township truth, Presbyterian
truth or Methodist truth.
Spoke of tho Business Man.
Among the many practical illustra
tions used by the speaker was one com
paring the demands made on the Chris
tian' man in the business world.
"In the commercial world," said Mr.
Woolley, "the man who does not or
can not pay his financial obligation, Is
an Insolvent, no matter how good his
Intentions may be. For instance, I
hold a note for $100 and demand my
own. The business man tells me that
It Is Inconvenient to pay that note to
day, that a bad Democrat across the
way would not pay his $100, and it Is
not fair to ask me to take out of my
business in these poor times $100, which
wJlt only give an advantage to the bad
man across the street No, no; he must
pay If he has any regard for his own
"The Christian church is just like
that. Every church has signed a note
to the Lord Jesus Christ on this ac
cursed rum traffic and It Is due on elec
tion day. It Is none of your concern If
the bad man across the street is going
to vote the 'Democratic ticket; It is your
business as a Christian to make good
your pledge. The great curse of the
Christian church today Is Christian in
solvency. The pledges made in gen
eral conferences and general assem
blies must be paid, or the church must
stand, before the world a bankrupt."
; HI speech throughout was intensely
ear tnl and such logic, such oratory,
sr Impressloned entreaties was never
heard at any of these former meetings.
Mr. Woolley will speak In this city in
December next.

Taylor Batcher.
Joseph Doyle, of Taylor, alleges that
he went Into the meat market of Robert
Llewellyn, In that borough, on Satur
day, July 27, to purchase chops for his
family's breakfast, and the butcher's
dog attacked him, selecting a large

John J. Godwin, of 304 Breck court, a
well built young man, apparently 27
years old, and a stone mason by trade,
was struck by the express from Wllkes

The train stopped and the uncon

only through the name, "J. 3. Godwin,"
stamped on a white satin hat lining
having iM. P. McCann's trade mark.
In his coat pocket was found a blue
print diagram of the fifth floor of the
Mears building. He had scraps of pa

Street Commissioner Kinsley has so far
proven a success.
Two men. for a iweek past, have taken
care of seven blocks of asphalt on
Adams avenue, and no complaints nave
been heard from the property holders
or the workmen. Upper Washington
avenue Is also being experimented
upon, two men taking care of the upper
six blocks. .
if this ratio will hold good through

Roaring Brook Bridge Is Also Up ia

Central City Approach Is as Vapraetleable
as the Swetland Street Approach to
v Linden Street Bridge-Ten Per
Cent. Grade on the Hill.
City Engineer Phillips' plans for the
approaches to Roaring Brook bridge.
which have been turned over to Peter
Stlpp, the contractor, show that the
bridge has a balloon landing, not quite
as bad as Its mate at Linden street, but
a balloon landing, nevertheless.
Figure as they would the engineer's
corps could not get anything better
than a 10 per cent, grade over the
Spruce street approach, a grade only 1
per cent, less than the steepest part of
West Lackawanna avenue hill and one
that Is likely never to be used by
teamsters In preference to the Adams
avenue route to Cedar avenue.
What One Contractor Said.
"There have been many mistakes in
the building of that bridge," asald a
well-known contractor who was view
lng the work yesterday, "but the great'
est mistake was in anchoring the cen
tral city end of It up among the clouds.
The Spruce street approach is too steep
for ordinary trafflce, and will make the
bridge Impracticable. About the only
use I can see for It Is that it will make
an excellent roosting place for the
goats of Shanty Mill."
The bridge itself will be what bridge
builders call a "camel back." There
will be a hump In the center which Is
climbed by a 2 per cent, grade on one
side and a 4Vi per cent, grade on the
other. This will not cause any serious
inconvenience to traffic that will all
be done by the approach but In order
to contribute something to the general
unsatisfactory nature of the bridge, It
had to take upon Itself this unsightly
hump for fear It might be a thing of
ueauiy noi a joy forever.
Directors of New Board of Trodo Build lng
n in .Meet Today.
This afternoon at 2 o'clock the board
of directors of the proposed board of
trade building will meet for general
business. It consists of the following
stocknoiders: c. Parker Davidson,
president; D. B. Atherton, secretary;
A. D. Dean, treasurer; Major Everett
Warren, E. B. Sturgcs, Dr. D. B. Hand,
Dr. L. M. Gates, W. A. May, J. W.
Oakford, T. H. Watklns. Secretary
Atherton Is not a director elected by
the stockholders, but was elected for
that position by the nine directors.
The treasurer has collected 10 per
cent, of the capital stock and tomorrow
the notice of the Intention to apply for
a charter will be published In the dally
papers. That will be chiefly the object
of the meeting, though building plans
will be looked over with a view to select
the best. It Is the Intention of the com
pany to pass on no plans but those of
9cranton architects. The secretary has
so notified the hundred or more foreign
architects who wrote on for particulars.
In about a week a force of men will
be eet to work excavating for the foun
dation. The oompany was organized
on Thursday, July 25, and the building,
It Is expected, will be finished and ready
for occupancy on April 1, 189S.
Only the Full Board Can Hereafter Grant
Miners' Certlfloates-And It Must Be
Bone at the Monthly Meeting.
William P. Griffiths, William D. Mor
ris and MUes Gibbons, the miners' ex
amining board for this district, met In
the court house yesterday for the pur
pose of granting certificates to those
who Intend to follow, the occupation
of mining and have passed a satisfac
tory examination. Fourteen applica
tions were granted.
According to law the board meets at
the court house on the first Monday of
every month. In the six years since
the board has been created, it has been
customary for the board to grant cer
tificates between meetings. If a man
who moved here from another district
happened to be anxious to get work In
this dlstrlot he could go to the homes
of the three examiners and present the
necessary proof; upon doing this the
secretary of the board would grant him
a certificate.
But court has Instructed the board
that certificates are not valid unless
given out at the regular meeting on the
flnst Monday of each month. Those
who hereafter desire certificates must
govern themselves according to the
new departure.

Merchants Can Use the Sidewalks With-
ont Let or Hindrance,
Street Commlslsoner Kinsley, when
asked yesterday If he was in receipt of
many complaints about the blockading
of sidewalks by wholesale and produce
merchants on Lackawanna and Penn
avenues, said that he Is almost daily
In receipt of complaints, but not a sin
gle remedy has been suggested.
The merchants, he says, have a right
to load and unload goods In front of
their stores. They have no right to al-

.strict letter of the law they would
cause a greater nuisance than they do.
now, as the sidewalk would be contin
ually blocked by goods being carried in
and out of the stores. By making a
concession to the merchants and allow
ing them to use the outer edge of the
sidewalk much Inconvenience to pedes
trians Is done away with and much
trouble Is saved the merchants.
"A market place," concluded Mr.
Kinsley, "is the only way out of the
difficulty. The merchants have rights
which have got to be respected and the
pedestrians also have rights, but as
the rights conflict the only thing to do
until we get a market Is to keep an even
temper and go by the golden rule."

The fishing In the upper waters of
the Delaware is said to be remarkably
good this year and It Is a favorite place
for the fishermen of this section. On
Saturday Conductor Bedell, of the On
tario and Western railroad, caught a
wall-eyed pike weighing four and one
half pounds In the river at Hancock.
Yepteirday the Pennsylvania Railroad
company employed divers to examine
the abutments of the railroad bridge
between Nantlcoke and West Nantl

number of years, and In order to see
that it Is perfectly safe the divers
were sent beneath the water to Investi

of the Order of Railroad Conductors,
was present at Sunday's union meeting
at Elmlra, vhere he Instructed those
present In the new "lectures' and other
secret work of the order. Another
meeting will be held In New York dur

pose. Many conductors from this city
attended Sunday's meeting In Elmlra
and many others will attend the com

The announcement Is made that the
Chicago and Eastern Illinois railroad
will make a raise in the wages of about
1,000 men who were cut In 1893. The
raise of wages will be the same as the
cut, which will average about 10 per
cent. None of the trainmen are affect
ed, as their pay was not cut In 1893. It
is also reported that the Big Four rail
road has the question of the restoration
of former rates of pay of trainmen un
der advisement and has promised an
early decision. Other roads are also
said to be considering the question.
Freight cars are still In great de
mand, large orders having recently
been placed by many of the larger
roads. This is made necessary by the
fact that many of the small roads hav
ing a meagre equipment fall td return
to the big companies the cars which
came on their lines, preferring to pay
mileage on their neighbors' cars rather
than build cars of their own. As a
consequence the big companies are al
ways In need of cars. The Pennsylva

$1,000 new box cars, estimates that It
would never feel the want of a car If
Its cars were returned to It In due
