fitting adieu to a couple who In their
relilglous and social life in Scranton
during the past five years have won a
great popularity among all denomina
tions. Beginning at 8 o'clock there was
a crush by hundreds of persons which
lasted several hours. A purse of $550
was divided between the pastor and
Captain Masland and Lieutenant
Green, of the Salvation Army corps,
left here Tuesday for New York where
on Wednesday they were present at
the welcome In honor of Commander
Booth-Tucker and wife. It is probable
that next week the corps will decide
whether or not to remain in the Salva
tion Army or to Join the American Vol
unteers. Though the matter has not
been considered at all, tlTt feeling
among the local members Is to remain
in the Army. They say that no good
reason has been shown why they should
leave, and that the principles taught
by Balllngton Booth for ten years have
been obedience to superior officers.
