MR. POWDERLVS ADDRESS.
Delivered Last Night la Wood's Collet
Before a Largo Audience.
Hon. T. V. Powderly lectured last
night at Wood's college for one hour
and a half to a very large audience,
comKsed of the faculty and students
of the college, together with their
friends and the public generally. "La
bor and Christianity" whs the subject
of the lecturer's discourse.
It was the snme able and eloquent
address which he delivered at Vandling
three months ago, but so simplified as
to bring it within the comprehension of
the average school boy. The speaker
Wc live In a rapid world. This Is
the age of electricity and machinery.
In politics, education and religion we
move just as rapidly. The thories of
today are practical operations tomor
row, or they give way to new theories.
The subjects of arbitration, commun
ism, socialism, co-operution, protit-
sharing, free trade and protection have
been discussed, tried repeatedly, pro
nounced failures, for the reason that
man Is imperfect. Yet they are very
much alive again, today. Since their
failures are due to man's imperfections,
why not give our attention to man?"
Mr. Powderly followed out this line
of thought elaborately and advocated
pre-nat:il culture as the remedy In the
case of the nation, as well as the fami
ly und Individual.
THK CAl'SKS CONSIDERED.
The Industrial and financial depres
sion of the country at present was de
scribed very graphically by the speak
er, nnd Its causes very forcibly consid
ered by him. To the extensive emigra
tion of the past decade he attributes
the present poor industrial condition of
the I'nitru States. The methods used
In Importing foreigners to our shores,
their condition as to cleanliness, mor
als nnd wealth, their Ignorance of our
laws and customs, their dim and ob
ject In life were recited In detail; but
one illustration will suffice to show the
injurious effects to our country of un
restricted emigration as now carried

ine result was mat they took the

earned J1.50, and removed 53 cents from

statistics of the lubor savins; machinery

GLIMPSE OF THE FUTURE.
From these evidences we can Infer the
possibilities of the future in the work

set In motion the countless machines
of the industrial world while man. poor

t obe content with looking on. The
convict labor contracts and Its detri
mental results to the wage earner was
outlined in a logical manner. The II-.
literacy t the emigrant and a large
percentage even of native Americans
in the mining regions as proved by the
lecturer, was a surprise to his aud
ience. "The little red school house on
the hill about which you have heard
so much," Bald he, "is the panacea for
illiteracy" providing we fill' them and
talk less about them."
Me advocated the enforcement of the
fnctory laws which forbid any child

money should not be sent abroad to

This year which Is destined to be
ever memorable In the annals of Scran
ton ' Christian Endeavorers will prob
ably have no day to which they will
look back with more pleasure than yes
terday when the first gun of the state
convention was fired by the committee
Rev. Dr. F. K. Clark, founder ci the
Christian Endeavor society, was
brought here to stir up the enthusiasm
that Is so necessary to the success of
the coming convention. That he suc
ceeded will be attested by the success
which awaits the fall gathering.
Dr. Clark arrived in the city at 3
o'clock in the afternoon and was quar
tered at the Jermyn. After a short rest
he wus escorted about the city by the
committee of ' who rode In carriages
gaily decorated with the special flags
of this year's convention. In the even
ing he addressed a large audience at
the Frothlngham and at the close of
this meeting wus tendered a reception
ut the Young Men's Christian associa
tion, where he added hundreds to the
almost liTnltless list of people whom he
has personally met throughout the
Had he been a lesser personage than
Dr. Clark, he would be In danger of
being considered an Incident of the
evening meeting because of Us magni
tude and Importance. For the first
time the choir of 150 voices which Is In
training for the convention made Its
appearance In :ublic, and for the first
time the Endeavorers were given an
opportunity of seeing the flags specially
designed lor 'H6. The choir is led by C.
II. (.'handler and is alreudy singing
with admirable power and unity. The
Hag is a very appropriate creation. - It
has two wide bars, the top one red.
and the lower, white. In the upper cor
ner, next tu the staff. Is a keystone
containing the Christian Endeavor
monogram. Across the full length of
the white bar la printed in blue letters.
"Scrnnton '!!." The colors, red, white

the keystone Is representative of the
state; the lettering is indicative of the
city, and the monogram denotes the
MR. DANIELS' ADDRESS.
Chairman C. E. Daniels, of the com
mittee of ', presided over the meeting
and made a short explanatory address
In displaying the flags, which was one
of the numbers of the programme. Rev.
Dr. James McLeod opened the meeting
with an invocation and two selections
were rendered by the choir. Rev. Dr.
Clark was then introduced In fitting
words by Mr. Daniels. As the speaker
came to the front of the stage he was
greeted the Chautauqua salute and
He began by recounting his former
visit to this city ten years ago, when
a state convention of the Endeavorers
was held here. The vestry of the Sec
olid Presbyterian churitfi was large
enough to hold all the delegates and
spectators and left room to spare. Now
It requires two or three large buildings
to accommodate the average state con
vention. Then there were only a few
hundred societies, now there are 46.000
scattered over the whole- world. The
United States Is, of course, the strong
hold, and Pennsylvania Is the banner
state of the Union In point or member
ship. These statements, he said, were
not made by way of boasting, but were
merely a contrast prefatory to his sub
sequent remarks. Continuing he said:
"What is God's purpose in this work?
No one can claim to be resiwnslble for
It. No one could have hindered It God
Is In it all. It Is of little consequence
what you or I or our critics more or
less kind may think of the Christian
Endeavor society. The question Is,
what Is God's purpose In It? It Is found
in the Book of Acts and the Book of
Joel: "Your sons and daughters shall
propheslze: young men shall see vis
Ions, and old men shall dream dreams."
By prophecy here Is meant In homely
phrase, to stand un for Jesus. In four
times ten thousand churches through
out the whole world are young
prophets. In their modesty they would
not claim to be prophets but In the sense
of the text they are prophets, stand
ing up fearlessly and without timidity
HE PITIES THEM.
"Your young men shall see visions.
I pity the young man who never
dreams, who never sees a vision. Many
of the glorious visions of better days
to come have come to our young peo
ple through the medium of the Chris
tian Endeavor society. First Is the
vision of better citizenship. If the
snirlt of true patriotism should die in
this country, then would our doomsday
be at hand. In Japan, I found that by
appealing to the patriotism of the
young man I could make the best im
pression. Do It for Japan's sake was
my cry, and their eyes would sparkle
and their faces kindle with a light which
told me plainly that they would do it.
In China, I could not reach the young
man with any such appeal. They had
no love of country. The government
at Pekin was to them only a succession
of rotton and tyrannical dynasties.
They owed their country nothing. What
was the result when the test or patriot
ism came? Japan was placed among
the foremost nations of the world and
China was beaten Into the dust.
"The time has come for the arousing
of patriotism in America. I realized
this in my travels and had It forcibly
brought to my mind In continental Eu
rope, where an American would have
to remain dumb when they would soy
that our moral stock was low and point
out the 10,000 murders, 200 lynchings,
riots, bloodshed and political corruption
that disgraced last year. There has
come to Americans a desire to throw off
this deplorable condition. An instance
of it was the uprising that overthrew
Tammany under 50.000 white ballots
and which is overthrowing Tammany
Ites throughout the whole country. Now
we are beginning to realize that these
were but sores on the body politic and
we find thnt there Is a sound suhstra
turn beneath. Christian Endeavorers
can truthfully contend that they, by
the influence of their young men, had
a share in this healing.
"Another vision is world-wide mis
stons. It used to be 'Our State for
Christ.' Now it Is 'The World for
Christ.' At a state convention last
yeur in lona, Michigan, when the lead
er of the closing meeting asked thnt
any who would be willing to go to the
end of the world to carry the gospel of
love, should stand up. Forty young
people were counted on their feet. In
the state convention at Tennessee sixty
young people expressed a like willing
ness. You will see this thought exem
pllfied next fall In your convention.
THE THIRD VISION.
"World-wide fellowship is a third
vision. Our society is Interdenomlnu
tlonal as well as international. We do
not break down the barriers of differ
er.cu between the various denomina
tions., but. as- some one has tritely re
marked, we take the barbs off the wire
fences so that we can shake hands with
our neighbors. In your convention you
w 111 come to understand this better,
You will not know or Inquire whether
the person sitting next to you is a
Presbyterian or a Aietnomst or a Bap
tist. AH you know or will care to know
Is that he or she Is a Christian. 'Blest
Be the Tie that Binds Our Hearts In
Christian Love' and 'God Be with You
Till We Meet Again are the two most
popular songs. In. the, world. This
blessed. God-given, world-wide fellow
ship Is delightful. We can not agree
In creed and polity, but we can array
ourselves in love and loyalty against
the common enemy . In this common
fight. This is a splendid vision, this
world-wide fellowship of those who love
Then there is the vision of splendid
heroism, the vision of those who have
overcome their timidity andbashful
ness, who have crucified their feelings
for love of Christ. We have examples
of young men In the west walking
miles to keep their promise to attend
the meetings. In these piping times of
peace there Is no opportunity given
for the exereme test of heroism. But
go to Armenia, where our Endeavorers
are giving up their lives sooner than
deny their God. In Tarsus, the birth
place of Paul, which he declared was
no mean city, but which, under the
Turkish rule, has greatly degenerated,
there is a school. St. Paul's college, es
tablished by the late Elliot F. Shep
herd, and In this school I found two
societies of Christian Endeavor. The
spirit of splendid heroism Is ripe in this
audience. You have seen this vision.
You have not been asked to die, but
you would under such circumstances.
DEEPER 8PI RITUAL LIFE.
"Then there Is the vision of a deeper
spiritual life. This will be the keynote
of the coming international conven
tion in Washington. If we get this
vision of spiritual power we have every
thing, it abounds In plenty and Is
within our reach. It Is possible to all
of you. The greatest thought that I
can bring to you Is thnt with this
power you can look Into the face of God.
You can have this vision. You can
cause it to permeate your convention.
You can give it to your visiting dele
gates. You must have this vision. You
must see God. We may say, and truly,
too, that we have enough machinery
and organization. What we want now
la the power. My message to you Is.
never say no to God. Whatever he
saith unto you, do It.".
At the close of the meeting the en
tire audience went across- the way to
the Young Men's Christian association
building where they were given an op
portunity of meeting Dr. Clark, also II.
Itaymore, of Erie, state treasurer.
and J. C. Manning, of Pittstnn, state
transportation agent. During the re
ception Conrad's orchestra rendered
several selections. Dr. Clark left for
Buffulo on the midnight train.
