BISHOP AGAIN WAITED UPON.
Polish Catholics' .Hake Another Ap
peal for Removal of Pastor.
The end of the' trouble in the Polish
Catholic congregation of the South
Side has not come yet.
Last night a committee consisting of
the oldest members of the congregation
again waited .upon Rt. Rev. Bishop
O'Hara to urge him to remove the
pastor. Rev, Richard Aust and compel
him to account for the money paid
Into his hands, during recent years to
sustain the church. The bishop prom
ised to make known his determination
Friday evening. The members of the
committee who waited on the bishop
last night were:' A." Sheverkowskl, J.
Narodzonek. J Krecherskl, L. F. Ols
hefskl and G. Griywrenskl.
They allege that the congregation ap
pointed a committee and Instructed it
to collect all moneys In the church
hereafter and take general charge of
the financial affialrs of the congrega
tion but that Father Aust last Sunday
refused to allow It to act. The feeling
against' the pastor appears to he grow

Tf there was any nml of domn
stratlnu the eentlmunt of the Republi
can of this community towards tholr
national ticket last nlrrht's natiilcation
supplied that need in tho fullest meas
ure. Despite the fact tliut people do
tint enter Into torr-h light processions
aiid the like, with as much zest as they
did In ye olden tlmi it was one of' the
blirgest polltcal demonstrations the city
There vere between four and five
thousand men in line and the streets
over which the procession passed were
literally jammed with spectators. Is
olations were profuse ami all along the
line of march there was an almost
continuous blaze of colored lights, set
oft' by the enthusiastic Itt-publlcan busi
ness men nnd residents.
The parade In addition toMts Rise was
very picturesque and contained many
new and Interesting features. There
were twenty-two clubs In line, in addi
tion to the wheelmen, and all wore the
regulation McKinley-Hobart white
yachting cap, with gold buttons on the
side, ond carried a lanterh of one de
scription nr another. Each club also
carried one or more transparencies
hearing some very catchy sentiment,
the most commented on being one car
ried by the Keystone Colored Republi
can club, "A Boy Orator is O. K., but a
Boy President Is N. O."
Stations for supplying fireworks were
established at regular Intervals along
the route and the marchers were thus
enabled to keep up an Incessant fusil
lade of Roman candles and the like.
Wherever they "moved the air was fair
ly afire and the sight presented on the
avenues where the prooesslon marched,
for a long distance, was magnificent.
The parade started at 8:20 and was
In motion until after 10 o'clock. The
four divisions formed', on the streets
running at right angles with Franklin
avenue and at the word of command
from the chief marshal. F. L. Hitch
cock, moved out Franklin to Lacka
wanna and thence over the following
route: l'j Lackawanna to Adams ave
nue, to Spruce street, to Jefferson ave
nue, to Olive street, to Washington ave
nue, to Mulberry street, to Penn ave
nue, to 8pruce street, to Adams avenue,
to Linden street, breaking ranks In
front of court house, where the mas3
meeting was held.
First came the bicyclists' division an
escort to Colonel Hitchcock and his
staff numbering, 25 aides, with J. W.
Oakford as chief. There were 600 wheel
men in line and each' wheel carried
Japanese lanterns HUHiended from the
handle-bars, forming a most beautiful
picture. Some of the. wheels also bore
other decorations and not a few were
MANY WOMEN IN LTNE.
There were also a number of women
among the cyclists. One girl wore a
bicycle costume made of American flaas
und was applauded all along the line.
The clubs represented In the division
were the West Sde Wheelmen, th
Green Ridge Wheelmen, the South SluV
Wheelmen, the Suburban Wheelmen of
Olyphant and the Scranton Bicycle
club. Coming up Lackawanna avenu
they rode four abreast and occupied the
entire stretch of street between Adams
and Franklin avenues. JJolph B. Ath
eiton was marshal and organizer of this
division and he had good reason to be
proud of It. His aides were Charles
Kerr. John Atheiton. Herbert Hall.
William Woelker, Harry Lucas and
One of the most applauded transpar
encies carried by the wheelmen was
"All the World's Awhoel and all the
Wheelmen ore for McKinley."
After the marshal and his aides, all
mounted, came the Luvrenee band and
then the first division, which was mar
shaled by T. Hunt Brock, with Alfred
Shoplnnd and Fred Widmayer aa aides.
The Dr. Throop McKinley club of the
Sixteenth ward had the light of line and
as far as novel display gneg deserved It.
Their torches were decidedly fin (le

ed on poles and supplied toy a machine

them as they marched. A big steam
boiler and stationary engine, also car
ried on the wagon, supplied the power
for the electric light machine. Threi?
ear splltlng steam gongs were also part
of their paraphernalia. The club had
one hundred men in line, and were led
by Eugene Strong. Dr. Throop rode at

road lanterns. Georgo Geary was mar
fhil. "There Is Nothing to Worry
About. McKinley Is ihe Engineer," was
the very appropriate legend which the
railroad men bore.
The South Side clubs were assembled

shaled by Hon. Alex. T. Cornell, who
had for his aides Philip Wlrth, Charles
Stone. J.tmes McGuInness, Fred Miller,

Camp 430 drum corps headed the line.
Then came the Ezra Ripple Republican
club of the Twentieth ward, numbering
120 men and captained by Thomas Grif
fiths. "Protect the Man Who Protects
l's." and "Oratory Does Not Increase
the Value of Silver" were among the
behests und declarations on their trans
parencies. The Nineteenth ward McKinley club
numbered 100 men and was led by
The Eleventh ward Republican club
carrying the significant banner "The
Solid South Is Broken" marched 110
men behind Philip Wlrth, who gave the
banner the peculiar significance by
carrying that ward In the eounellmanlo

THE FOURTH DIVISION.
Colonel E. H. Ripple marshaled the
fourth division which contained the
Dunmore delegation, the colored clubs,
the Ninth ward club and the Central
Republican club und.T whose auspices
the demonstration was held.
First came a carriage drawn by four
horses containing the officers of the
colored clubs. William Simpson. H. A.
Patterson. John A. Walker and George
W. Brown. Then followed the Key
stone Republican club numbering 73
men, officered hv G. W. Brown, Frank
Thomas, and W. H. Johnson. One of
their banners read "Only one Choice for
Congress" and the other was the one
above referred to "A Boy Orator Is O.
K., hut a Roy President Is N. G."
The Central Republican club headed
by Bauer's Band nnd captained by Mil
ton W. Lowry came next. They num-'
bered 150 men, Including many of
Scranton's most prominent citizens.
Then came the Ninth ward Republi
can club led by George Marshall and
numbering CO men.
The Dunmore delegation under the
leadership of Charles Savage followed
200 strong, being one of the strongest
clubs In line. They carried a trans
parency reading "Major McKinley now,
but President McKinley next March."
The left of the line was brought up
by the William Connell McKinley club
composed of 43 colored men. led by John
W. Muse. "There Is No Collor Like
Mine" was one of the legends
which caused people to take a second
look. Another read "Honest Vote,
Honest Count, Honest Money."
AT THE COURT HOUSE.
Whatever there was of red fire, shouts
ond enthusiasm during the march, all
those things were several times multi
plied at court house square, around
which the parade wound Itself and came
to n close. Here was located the speak
ers' stand, on the lawn facing Linden
street, and here was let loose till the
pent-up noise, fireworks and hurrah
that had been reserved since the pro
cession stalled. The speakers' stand,
made conspicuous by the constant burn
ing within it of colored fire, was the re
minder or the encouragement for a ver
itable river of fireworks, wave of c heers
and outburst of music which encircled
the whole square. The paratlers and
their lanterns and torches, the Immense
crowd occupying the big lawn and the
streets that encircled it combined to
niuke the scene an auspicious and en
thusiastic, curtain-rsiser to the now
present campaign. The campaign cer
tainly began with n vehemence which
argued well for a stiff and earnest flht
Ttte long line of bicycles which head
ed the parade halted and arranged Itself
In two lines, one along each curb from
Spruce street and Adams avenue, along
the latter thoroughfare and through
Linden street to Washington avenue.
Between the two lines thus formed the
main body of the paraders passed, this
movement, together with the fireworks
and music which encircled the square,
making a lively picture which will not
soon be forgotten by the thousands of
BEFORE PARADE ARRIVED.
In the speakers' stand only a few Re
publican notables were gathered before
the parade was ended. They entered
later and while the crowd was gather
ing on the lawn. This crowd, by the
way, contained a sprinkling of Demo
crats, as evidenced by their noise at in
tervals during the speech-making, but
their minority was so apparent and
their efforts so fruitless that the Re
publican listeners received the Interfer
ence with good nature and as one of the
natural features of a campaign nnd
drowned the Democratic Interruptions
with such lusty yells for McKinley, for
protection and for gold that the oppo
sition ceased to make Itself heard after
the speech-making was fairly begun.
Thomas H. Dale was chairman. The
speuker of the evening was Mahlon
Chance, formerly a congressman from
McKlnley's district in Ohio and a per
sonal friend of the Republican candi
date, but for twelve years a resident of
New York city and a leading member of
the American Protective Tariff league
of that city. District Attorney John R.'
Jones read a set of ringing Republican
resolutions which were endorsed by the
crowd, and A. J. Colborn made the con
cluding speech of the evening.

stand were: Major Everett Warren.

The Republicans of Lackawanna coun:y
assembled In muss meeting for the pur
pose, of ratifying the nominations or the
party nt fit. Louis, representing not only
the several clubs and organizations of (liu
party, but also the people generally who
are In sympathy with the cause of Repub
licanism, desire to impress upon the citi
zens of Lackawanna the exceptional Im
portance of the'natlonal canvass this year.
We believe It Is the most momentous In
its effects of any since WW; not only Is
the prosperity of the people deeply con
certed and menaced, but the national
honor Is at Slake. We" assert In the moat
positive manner our abhorrence of those
who, In carrying out tlielr schemes, trail
the spotless honor of the nation through
the mire of ilisEiace. Euuully reprehen
sible are thos who are seeking to an
tagonize the sections against each other
in the spirit or envy and hate, and to cre
ate prejudices antagonistic to the rights
of the people and the constitution.
We heartily endorse the action of the
convention In St. Louis und the platform
there adopted. We believe in a protec
tive tariff; we are convinced thut pro
tection is the key note to prosperity.
Wo desire a protective tariff that really
protects, that offers eiiqal reward to labor.-
and capital that all may enjoy in
the best sense the fruit of their labor. We
not only, advocate a tariff that furnishes
revenue for all the government's needs,
but Ruch ns Is an ubsihite safeguard
against every line of foreign 'competition,
protecting fully our labor In whateverllel.l
It Is from competition with foreign pauper
labor. A protection that Insures to our
people a better life, brighter hopes, higher
education, more comfort and refinement.
The goal of the poorly paiil foreign la
borer "the alms house," must not be the
result and reward of a life of toil and In
dustry. RECIPROCITY POLICY.
We believe In the reciprocity policy In
augurated by that wisest of American
(atatesmtMV. James O. Blaine. We be
lieve In America and In a vigorous Amer
ican policy. We are In favor of resisting
any and all aggressions of foreign powers
and of any attempt on their part to en
croach on this nation or to 4mlnat the
Western Hemisphere. The American ptft
lcy we believe Is synonymous with pa
triotism. Aside from the protective policy of the
Republican party which we believe- to be
the key note to national prosperity, the
most Important Issue this full Is the ques
tion of the currency. The mutter is most
momentous and serious. The honor of
the nation and incidentally of every' Indi
vidual Is gt .stake make no mistake
"whom the Gods would destroy they first
make mad." A wild hysterical frenzy
seems to. have come upon a section of our
ralr Union. A party Is striving to dis
honor us before the world In advocating
a policy that will inevitably depreciate
our currency und place this greut and all
powerful nation upon the footing of small
and comparatively inconsequential coun
tries and overthrowing onr standard of
money which Is acknowledged by all the
most enl!i;htened notions of the world to
be the real stundurd of value and on which
basis we have Incurred Immense obliga
tions Mit we cannot dishonor.
Ws wish to state most emphatically
that we are' for and uphold the present
gold .standard. The American dollar must
be und shall be what It purports to be and
Intrinsically worth 100 cents all over the
world. We emphasize thut we believe
the luborer Is worthy of his hire rnd that
an houe?t dollar must and shall be paid
and received Tor a dollar's worth of work.
That no 'nation can fool with Its money
standard which is acknowledged to be the
standard of the world, any more than they
can play around a powder mill with
matches without dangsr of an explosion.
No nation on earth can make- a thing
worth more than what Its market value
Is In the commercial centers of the world,
