THE FIRST LENTEN SERMON
Delivered at St. Peter's Cathedral by
Rev. J. A. McHanh.
EMPHASIZES GOOD EXAMPLE
The Only Evil la tbe World Is When Man
Turns Ills Hack on God for the Vani
ties of Thia World-Fasting and
Prayer Necessary for Salvation.
Rev. J. A. Mc-IIugh preached the first
sermon of the Lenten devotions at the
cathedral last evening. The church
was crowded and the large congrega
tion was highly edltled by the Impres
sive nnd eloquent discourse of the
speaker. The text was from the Lam
entation of Jeremlus. and was: "Be
astonished, O ye heavens! for my peo
ple hnve done two evils. They have
forsaken me, the fountain of living;
waters, and have digged to themselves
cisterns, broken cisterns which hold no
Father McHugh gave a very scholar
ly sermon on this subject. He held that
the only evil is the one deplored by the
prophet, where people turn their back
on the Lord and forsake Him to busy
themselves with the vanities of the
We are all sinners and must do pen
ance or shall all likewise perish. There
is 110 getting' around this fact. Ooil
pluced us in the world; He thought ot
us from nil eternity and has creuted
11s. After creating us He has given life
by coming down trom heaven and dying;
011 the cross of Calvary.
Tile glories of the world are like a
skyrocket: it goes .up In the air and
breaks forth Into many beautiful colors,
but it returns to the earth in nothing
ness. The object of our creation is to reach
the end that tiod has destined us for
and every means Is given that we may
reach that end; what does it profit a
man -to gain everything but the object
of his creation ? ,
SEASON OF PKNANCE.
Therefore, to overcome the tempta
tions of the world, in this season of
penance, we must fust and pray. Kv
ery sin that is committed is a cruci
fixion over again of the divine Pavlor
we turn our buck upon Him and we are
cruel and ungratelm as the Jews have
We do not realize It nor can we real
ize it until we depart from this world
nnd come face to fuce with our Father.
Wlui t have we done here? Have we
gone on for tbe purpose of acquiring;
riches and weulth .' Js that the ciki rur
which we were created? If so, well and
good, go on; but if we are here to save,
our souls we must feed the soul with
prayer and with the good works that
are within our reach.
The speaker dwelt upon the idea that
some people have of the way they think
clod will be satlslleuV Some think that
it is all right If they say a few prayers
in the morning: and go to mass every
Sunday and in an outward way appear
as good Catholics.
This will not do; God Is Jealous and
wants the first fruits of the day, but
even when we turn our back upon Him
the mercy He extends Invites us back
while we are in the net of offending
St. Augustine says that we were cre
ated without our own consent, but we
will not be saved without our consent.
To be saved we must adopt the means
furnished to us, and the most clticuulous
OS GOOD EXAMPLK.
The speaker laid stress on the neces
sity of being of good life not only for
our own good, but also for the example
shown lo others. The person who leads
a bad life has an awful responsibility
on his soul; he is not only sending- his
own Immortal soul to eternal punish
ment, but a number of others who have
been led away by the force of example.
On the last clay, when mankind ap
pears to be Judged for the actions of
this life. Cod will then appear in the
light of justice; mercy will no longer he
extended and there will be an accounting-
for every moment of our life.
The Judge will not then appear as Tie
does now In robes of forgiveness. Fa
ther McHugh exhorted his hearers to
hasten to the Savior in the present time,
not to delay It until too late.
After the sermon the reverend speak
er imparted benediction of the blessed
"Pelmon loo's at 6," by Glen MacDon
ough will be the attraction at the
Frothlngham Friday and Saturday
evenings and Saturday afternoon. This
attraction has been recently secured by
J. M. Wnrd from C. B. JefTerson, Klaw
& Erlanger, and the reception of the
play no doubt will be a cordial one.
"Delmonlco's at 6" is Glen MaeDon
ough's best work; It is full of action, ev
ery line of -it is bright, and in construc
tion Indicates the workmanship of a
skilled dramatist. This Is strictly a
farce and is wholly Intended for amuse
ment, but appeals as do his other plays
to the best taste. J. M. Ward has se
cured on excellent company of actors
of the best rank who canont fail to
give a delightful and artistic perform
ance. Many specialties will be Intro
duced. 'I I' 'I , .u .
We have convincing proofs that one
of the very best sensational plays on
the road this season will be "The (New)
Captain's Mate." by the Dittmur Uros..
and interpreted by that brilliant and
magnetic little star. Miss Florence
Bindley, and her excellent compuny.
It Is iiulte safe to say nothing more
elaborate In the way of scenic and me
chunical effects will be placed upon any
stage this season and truly no more
pleasing performance witnessed. Man
anger Itoberts assures us that the thea
ter can clean their stage of every piece
of their theater scenery, stage settings,
etc., as they cany everything with
which to give their entire performance.

James B. Mackie; the clever younsr
comedian who has scored such a great
success as "Hilly Grimes" In "Grimes'
Cellar Door" for the past five seasons,
will give a performance of the musical
farce comedy at the Academy on Mon
day evening. Mr. Mackie Is well and
favorably remembered for his clever
work as "Grimesey, Me Boy" in "A
Bunch of Keys." which part he played
successfully for five seasons, but his
present work as "Billy Grimes" in
"Orimes' Cellar Poor," is by far the
best he has ever done, and llrmly es
tablished him an original comedian of
Walte's famous comedy company will
open a two weeks' engagement at the
Frothlngham next Monday evening.
The Walte company is the strongest or
ganization of its kind now before the
public. It consists of thirty-two art
ists and concert orchestra and band.
The company carries a carload of scenic
effects. There will be twenty-three
performances In all. Dally matinees
will be given after the first Monday.
All who appreciate original and legiti
mate comedy should not fail to visit
Davis' theater during the next three
days and see Sam T. Jack's company
produce the bright, spicy and highly
amusing burlesque entitled "My Uncle
from New York." It was first staged
at Mr. Jack's opera house in Chicago,
during the World's fair, and has been a
continued success as a road attraction,
testing the seating capacity of the lam
est theaters. It will be presented here
by a competent cast of select comedy
and specialty performers, headed by
the original star duo. Miss Caroline

HOME TOR AiKD MEMBERS.
Scheme Is Oecopyiag the Attention of
Knbjhta of Pvlbias.
Knights ,f Pythias of this city and
vicinity are Interested in a scheme for
the creation of a home for its old and
indigent members. The plan is being
discussed quietly, but with energy. In
August the grand lodge meets lit
Gettysburg, when affirmative or nega
tive action will be taken In another
Pythian project, that or buildinir a $.100.
000 temple in Philadelphia. Aside from
the lodges of Philadelphia and vicinity
the temple project Is not generally ap
proved, and leading members of the or
der in this section of the state are anxi
ous to create a sentiment In favor of
the home idea before action is taken
on the temple plan at the meeting of
the grand lodge.
Agents representing several sections
ot the six counties comprising the
northeastern district of the state have
been in Scranton since Saturday. Tney
have succeeded in winning over to the
home Idea several lntluential members
of th order who had previously been
Interested in forwarding the temple
movement. Local knights, however,
are beginning to realize that a home
would be of great benefit In providing
for helpless members of the order In
this part of the state, while the temple
would directly benefit only the lodges
of Philadelphia and vicinity.
The work of the local men has pro
ceeded so favorably that a convention
will be called during the next few
months to forward their plans. This Is
thought to be necessary in order that
the temple element may be successfully
opposed before or during the grand
lodge session. The six-county conven
tion will probably be held In this city.
Aside from the immediate benefit to
lodges In this section of the state, the
home project, it Is thought, will Interest
others, especially In those cities where
the home might be located. Scranton.
Northumberland, Wllkes-Barre and
Wllliamsport have been prominently
mentioned as desirable locations or the
home, and if the movement assumes
proportions Indicative of success. It is
probable thut steps In each of these
cities will be taken by citizens generally
to secure the institution.
THAT M1XE "STRIKE.
Tho Mt. Pleasant Mine Trouble lias llecn
The report that sixty miners In the
Mt. Pleasant mine, owned by W. T.
Smith, hud struck for higher wages, is
not correct. A dozen or fifteen miners
employed In the new shnft to the upper
vein stopped work Monduy morning.
The men. it Is understood, have some
Rrievunee about wages which has not
been fullv considered by Mr. Smith,
who was in New York until Tuesday.
The new vein Is not in absolutely work
able condition and the men at work in
it were being employed at an actual loss
to the owner. I'nder these circum
stances It Is not likely that work will
be at once resumed.

The ruff takes the form of a fichu, and

WILL BE A VAST THRONG
Thousands to Attend tbe Grand Com'
mandcry Conclave in May.
ALL THE HOTELS ARE ENGAGED
Sir knights and Their Lsdies Will Over
run tbe City from May 23 to 28.
To I'tillie tbe Frothlng
The fact that the grand commandery
of Knights Templar of the state will
meet here May 26 arid 27 does not really
suggest the peculiar Importance at
tached to the event. It Is said of these
grand commandery meetings that they
bring together a brainier and more In
fluential cluss of men than does any
other state gathering of a secret order.
Together with the foregoing should be.
observed the fact that the occasion will
bring to the city vast throngs of
strangers whose number is pre-estl-
mated at from 7.000 to 12.000 persons.
The grand commandery membership
Is made up of eminent commanders of
63 commaiiderles and past eminent
commanders. These number over 1.200,
and It is anticipated that half of them
will be In this city. The conclave will
also attract possibly S.OiH) Sir Knights,
the mujoiity or whom will be accom
panied by their wives. It being an tin
written Knights Templar custom to
share with the gentler sex the round of
festivities which always attend the
Grand commandery sessions. Add to
these figures the number of Masons
and others who will be attracted here
by the event, and the total number of
anticipated visitors will approach 9,000.
AFTER, HOTEL ACCOMMODATIONS.
The strife of the different visiting
commanderies to obtain hotel accom
modations Is Illustrated In their action
on the day that lust year's conclave In
Reading selected Scranton for this
year's gathering. That meeting was
no sooner adjourned than many tele
grams were hurried over the wires ad
dressed to Scranton hotels and engag
ing a certain number of rooms for cer
tain commanderies. The Wyoming
house was engaged from top to bottom
within three clays after the decision at
Reading and the same is almost true of
the Lackawanna Valley House, the
Westminster, the Hotel Terrace and
the St. Charles hotel. As soon as It be
came known that the ble Hotel Jer-
myn was being erected, that house was
completely engaged excepting only a
few rooms for boarders and other per
manent guests. This accounts for the
strenuous efforts to have the hotel open
and ready for business during the lat
ter part of April.
Although Tuesday and Wednesday,
the 26th and 27th of May, are the two
formal days of the conclave, Monday
and Thursday of that week will also
witness the presence of many strangers.
as on the former day, especially in the
afternoon and evening, many hundreds
of Sir Knights will reach here, and
during Thursday there will remain a
large number who will be housed with
friends and relatives. So almost the
whole week will be given over to the
great throng of plumed and uniformed
RECEPTION TUESDAY MORNING.
Tuesday morning In the Hotel Jer-
myn Right Eminent Grand Commander
Edward M. Spencer, of Philadelphia,'
will be given a reception. On the same
morning will occur the parade in which
will be seen about forty-live comman
deries and almost ns many friends and
which will Include the famous mounted
organization the Corinthian Chasseurs,
of Philadelphia. The parade will un
doubtedly be the most Imposing ever
seen In this city or region.
During Tuesday afternoon and all of
Wednesday will take place the business
meetings and Grand commandery elec
tion In the Frothlngham theater. On
Tuesday night the Knights Templar
ball will be given In the theater and on
Wednesday night the Installation of the
newly elected officers will take place.
The ball Is always un elaborate affair.
The Installation ceremony Is a very
impressive function and will be seml
