lie began his address by saying that
though books ami libraries existed
thousands and thousands of years ago,
nevertheless the library, In Its modern
sense, Is an entirely now institution.
"In this country." he said, "the libraries
have two or three eras of growth. The
ill st movement al'mg this line was
made In 1G3.H, when ilnivard university
"Part of the mental equipment of the
university was a library, and this is
the first library of a. public nature that
we have any record of. A furtherance
of the movement between 1638 and 1776
was tho foundation of Yale college. A
meeting of eleven or twelve clergymen
was held, and the results of tho with
ering was that each contributed a
number of books and this library was
part of the nucleus of the great New
"In 1731 Henjamln Franklin organ
ized the Philadelphia Library company,
and within a few months like organ
izations weie started all over the states
and twenty more library companies
wete in full blast. Then came the
l evolution and another lull in the
library work. Hut In about 1S30 there
was a renewed activity and the organ
ization began of young men's mercan
tile libraries, of which wo still have
several line Instances, among which
may be mentioned the New York citv
and tit. Louis Mercantile libraries. In
1".10 New York state began organizing
school libraries and was followed by
Massachusetts and other states.
"All throughout the New Knglnnd
Mates have led in tho number of li
braries, but of late there has been a
wonderful growth In the middle west
and gieal interest is there manifested
In the public lioraries. In the south
the peculiar mixed population some
what Interferes with the library work,
as there Is u deep-seated repugnance
among the members of old southern
families towanls lining up at the same
counter and asking for books side by
siib; with colored men or women.
(1KOHOIA IN THK LEAD.
"However, there has been no trouble
otter the libraries were started and
Ihti hereditary antipathy was In n way
overcome. Oeorgla takes the leatl
among, southern states In activity In
the movement and, Carnegie's gift of a
library to Atlanta has been productive
of many good results.
"Now, regarding .the value of a li
brary to the ("immunity ut large. An
Institution of this nature Is of mate
rial value, of social and political value
and intellectual and spiritual value.
It provides entertainment us well as
imparts information nod occupies a
general Held of usefulness."
Librarian Carr then passed into a
general description of library buildings.
He told of tho handsome Peabody In
stitute, at llaltlmore, tho gift of the
late George Peadbody, and also brielly
mentioned the Uoston library. Tho
great cnngicsslonal library at Wash
ington, he Mild, Is a building of which
the nation may well be proud. Ills
address was an .iuteiesting and In
structive one, and at Its close a vote
of thanks was tendered him by the

WANTED FOR MURDER
IN FAR OFF POLAND
Important Arrest Made Last Night
in Plymouth by Deputy Mar
shal Lowry and Detec
An Important arrest was made last
night In Plymouth by Deputy United
States Marshal Clark Lowry and Se
cret Service Officer Wilson. They Suc
ceeded In capturing Stanislas Uar
tochevitsch, who Is wanted by the
Hiisntan government for tho murder of
a woman In Poland a ycarvgn.
After the killing he lied to this coun
try and a short time nftcrwaids his
wife and child followed him here. The
KtisHlan authorities did not know to
what part of this country Rartoche
vltseh had lied, but they learned that
the wife and child had gone to Ply
mouth. This fact ivoh communicated to the
authorities al Washington and Deputy
Marshal Lowry and Detective Wilson
were put on the case. They went to
Plymouth yesterday afternoon their
only working clue being a description
of the man. Mr. Lowry wan standing
on one of the street corners early In
the evening when ho saw a man ap
proaching who closely resembled this
He stopped him mid asked him If his
name, was Stanislas Bartochevitsch
and the man replied that it was. He
was immediately placed under arrest
and brought to this city where he was
lodged in the county jail over night.
He will be taken to New York today

RECEPTION TO THE
Y. M. C. A. WORKERS
Large Crowd Gathered at the Rooms
Last Night to Attend the Roll
Call of "Workers Band."
A live crowd of religious workers
gathered at the Young Men's Chris
tian association, rooms last night. The
occasion was tho roll call of the
"Workers' Band," and a reception to
twenty young men who have been
converted during the month through
The roll call showed a tull attend
ance and In the testimony meeting,
which followed, a large number of
men spoke earnestly ,ot the goo.l
which they had received from tho
Workers' Hand. Tho Interesting fact
bi ought out by this feature of the
meeting was that most of the seventy
or eighty men present had either
been converted or led out of indiffer
ence and careless living in tho Young
Men's Christian association rooms
during the past two years. Frequent
mention was mnde of the secretary's
Hlbl" training class as n great agency
for helping the various speakers.
Secretary Mahy closed the first part
of tho meeting with a short descrip
tion of. the llrst steps in Christina
living, for the benefit of the young
converts present, These, he said,
were1 First, prayer; fecond, HlbU
study; third, confession; and by eon
lesslon. thu speaker said, he meant
joining some church.
It wouldn't do to simply join tha
Young Men's Christian association,
for It Is the church, and not the Young
Men's Christian association, that Is
God'H divinely nppnlntcd agency for
receiving men's vows and confessions
and administering the sacraments of
baptism and the Lnrd' pupper, which
Jems ordained as the signs and seals
of a true confession.
In fact, no man can join tho Young
Men'b Cluistlan association as an ac
tive member who does not llrst join
the church, for only church members:
are received into active membership.
The Voting Men's Christian associa
tion exists only as an expression ot
the chinch's Interest In young men,
and Is an agent of the church for spec
Jul work among men, as the Sunday
school Is an agent for special work
The fourth step In Christian living,
Mr, Mahy said, was service, or seek
ing to get other men saved, When a
young Christian gets to work s-eeklng
to lead other men to Christ, he Is safe
from hack-nlldlng. A social hour fol
lowed the regular meeting and wns
mado enjoyable by light rofreshmenls,
served by Caterer William llanloy.

SCHOOL BOABD ACTS ON VAC
Health Officer Allen Pointed Out the
Necessity of a Strict Enforcement
of the Vaccination Law and a Spe
cial Committee Was Immediately
Appointed to Confer with the
Board of Health Board Offers
$3,000 for Seeley Property Bids
for Addition to No. 35 Rejected.
Tho board of control Inst night took
prompt action on tho vaccination
ilticstlon, after listening to Health Of
ficer Allen, who appeared ns the representative-
of the board of health, and
who Impressed upon the members the
urgent necessity of taking Immediate
action to enforce the provisions of tho
Tr. Allen stntcd that, in his opinion,
not one-half ot the children In tho
public schools al present nre vaccin
ated, as required by law. He told of
the present smallpox epidemic in Now
York and enlarged upon the fact that
Scranton Is In closer communication
with that city than any other place
In this part of tho country. Ho told
of the epidemic of the disease some,
nineteen years ago, when f-ome $-'3,-000
had to bo expended by the city In
stamping It out.
Ills views were concurred In by Dr.
O'Malley. "Smallpox," said he,
"comes In cycles. It mny strike us
one dny and find us unprepared. If
it does, It will be because councils and
tho school board have been derelict In
their duty. This is 'a matter of great
moment; a matter of tho very great
est Importance and prompt action
should bo taken."
It was decided to nppolr.t a special
committee of three, with Dr. O'Mal
ley as chairman, to confer with the
board of health and the attorney of
the hoard, for the purpose of devising
ways and means of enforcing the lav..
It was also decided to give the com
mittee full power to act for the board
in the matter. Chairman Jayne
named ns members of the committee.
Dr. O'Malley and Messrs. Barker and
For a number of years there has been
trouble over a lot In the rear of No. 10
school, owned by William H. Seeley.
Mr. Seeley contended that the water
from the school property ran onto his
lot. Then ho threatened to put up a
building which would shut off the light
from the roar of the school, when he
found that the board would do nothing.
Ho llnally decided to sell the property
for $3,800, but his attorney, H. C. Rey
nolds, last night stated to the board
that he would take $3,150. It jvas unani
mously decided to offer him $3,000 for
tho property, and if he refused to ac
cept that amount to break off all ne
gotiations. Mr. Shires wns on hand last night
with a resolution requesting the build
ing committee to report at the next
meeting upon the necessity of erecting
an eight-room building In the First
ward, In response to the request of
over 200 petitioners living In that part
of ' the city. The resolution was re
ferred to the building committee, as
was also one introduced by Mr. Golden,
dliectiug Architect Feeney to prepare
plans and specifications, for a new
twelve-room building in the rMxth
The building committee reported that
a number of bids had been received for
tho addition to No. 35, but recommend
ed that all be rejected and that the
secretary be directed to te-advertlse
for now bids. This recommendation
was adopted, as was also a recommen
dation that $."0 be paid to each of the
owners of the live annexes rented while
No. 2 school was being built, the money
to defray the expense of putting the
buildings back in their original con
dition. HOLIDAY VACATION.
The teachers' committee recommend
ed that the schools be closed for the

tary was instructed to correspond
