The members of tho New Knglimd
Society of Northeastern Pennsylvania
believe that tonight's annual banquet,

cessful dinner in the history of the or
ganization, which was the one held last
year.
Forefather's day is really tomorrow,
but it was deemed unadvisable to hold
the banquet on Saturday night. The

American flags and the tables will bo
arranged in the form of a hollow
square. Covers for 150 guests will be
set.
There will be a reception In the board
of trade committee rooms from C.30 to
7 o'clock. Promptly at the latter hour
the banquet will be served. President
W. H. Richmond will preside and will

Boies, Homor Groeno and Rev. Dr.
James McLood.
"Old Nassau" was lust night toast
ed, sung, poenied and praised as only
a crowd of reverential sons can thus
pay homage to a good mother. The
occasion was tho fifteenth annual din
ner of the Princeton Alumni asso
ciation of Northeastorn Pennsylvania,
ono of the largest and most loyal of
the many branches of thu great fam
ily of tho famous old Jersey Institu
tion of learning. The dinner was
served In tho Scranton club last night.
If "by their fruits yo shall know
them" Is to extend to a college, Old
Nassau need not fear for her reputa
tion on account of her Northeastern
Pennsylvania progeny. A glance nt
tho names of those who were about
tho festal board last night doing her
honor and Incidentally having a good
time Is a sulllelent guarantee of this:

MEMBER OF FACULTi.
The dinner was made especially
prominent by the presence, ns one of
the guests of honor, of Prof. Walter
A. WyckofT, of the Princeton faculty,
who Is known tho world over as rt
loader of thought In the science of
sociology. It was Prof. Wyckoff, It
will be remembered, who made a tour
of tho country In the guise of a la
borer, that he might make a closer
study of Ihe conditions of tho working
classes. His article.-? describing his
experiences, observations nnd conclu
sions comprl.se an accepted text hook
for all modern sociologists.
The other guests of honor in their
respective spheres wore scarcely, If
any, less prominent. They wore Colo
nel Henry M. Boles and Homer
Greene. To ray to u lcoal newspaper
reader who or what these men are Is
superfluous. Colonel Boles was present
as the representative of Yale and Mr.
Greene of tho smaller colleges.
The dinner was served by Steward
O'Nell and ns he had practically carte
blanche, It may be believed it was
about all that Epicurias himself
could demand. Here Is tho menu:
Cine Cod Oysters.
SOUP.
Mot It Turtle a la Anglaise.
Olives, Stuffed. Celery. Itadislie.

Ueilcd Kenuebeo Salmon,

It was served in the main dining
room and was extremely tasteful In all
Its appointments. Bauer's orchestra
furnished music during tho dining and
also accompanied tho singing of tho
college songs and popular airs, which
helped enliven tho occasion in no small
degree. The singing was led by Dr.
Woodcock.
TOASTMASTER HARRIS.
President Harris acted as toastmas
ter and acquitted himself In his usual
exemplary manner. In his Introductory
remarks he referred enthusiastically to
tho evidences of the broadening of
spirit on tho part of the governing body
of Princeton, as evidenced by the re
cent decision to give the nlumni a rep
resentation on the board of trustees.
Prof. Wyckoff was Introduced', with
many complimentary references, to re
spond to the toast "Princeton Univer
sity." In a prefatory way, Prof.
Wyckoff made some happy allusions to
his eighteen months' experience as a
common day laborer, and related a
number of humorous Incidents connect
ed therewith.
Alumni representation on the board
of trustees was mudo the chief topic
of Prof. Wyckoffs remarks. Ho re
garded it as a concession which can not
help but work to tho betterment of
Princeton. It will bring the alumni In
more direct contact with tho govern
ment of the university and tend to a
broadening of unverstty life and edu
cation. He would not characterize it
as a reform, but rather as a new form,
and was confident It will bring irood
fruit.
The more rapid development of the
graduate school Is ono of the things
which, In Prof. Wyckort's opinion, will
come with the entrance of alumni iuto
Follow
the Crowd

Will Land
at
COUPSEN'S
429 Lackawanna Avenue,
Fancy Groceries, Fruits,
Confections and Cigars,
tho board of trustees, He also dwelt
for a tlino on the great heed of a gradu
ate Rchool. Young men Who feel In
clined to pursue a course of special' re
search now go to foreign schools, prin
cipally tho German universities. As an
Instance of tho tendency of specializ
ing, he told that because of the fact
that economical scholars aro so do
voted to special lines of Inquiry that
there Is not a standard text book which
treats generally of economics.
Tho centralization und organization
of inbor and capital, and the possibility
of tho elimination of the friction which
results from their coming Into oppo
sition, Is ono of the special studies that
are dally growing more and more ex
acting In tho branch of education to
which .he Is allied.
PRINCETON'S ACHIEVEMENTS.
Professor Wyckoff also spoke proudly
of some of Princeton's more Important
achievements of late, touching partic
ularly on the ratagonlan and Syrian
expeditions, which have added, or will
shortly add, so much of value to the
world's knowledge of pacncontology,
geology and archaeology.
A "locomotive" cheer and" tho hearti
est applause greeted Professor Wyckoff
and followed the conclusion of his ad
dress. Colonel Boles was similarly greeted
when ho arose to respond to the toast
"Yale." Tho colonel said he accepted
tho Invitation to attend tho dinner with
not a little hesitancy. He feared that,
In the llBht of the recent event on the
gridiron, the presence of a Yale man
would have a tendency to dampen tho
spirits of a crowd of Princeton diners.
"Never! Never!" came from all sides ot
the table.
"Possibly I was selected among all
tho Yalo men In this region because It
is known to your committee that I am
a member of the state board of chari
ties and that I would comport myself
In keeping with charity, which 'vaunt
eth not Itself and Is not puffed up.' "
After a brief reference to tho friend
ship and close bond of union which has
existed between Yale and Princeton
from tho beginning, Colonel Boles es
sayed to explain it on tho ground that
both had been founded by clergymen
for tho education of Christian citizen
ship and that they have always stood
for uniform and, co-ordinate physical,
mental and moral education.
A great deal Is said now, the speaker
then went on to say, about the Immor
ality nnd vice In our cities and the
corruption in public life, betokening a
lowering of the moral plane nnd indi
cating a peril to our country. The
malversation of our government's poli
cy of separation of church and stale
has effected tho almost complete oblit
eration of moral education In our public
schools. This means a mental educa
tion solely for the great mass of tho
people at large and It results In ari ab
normal development of character.
OAT1. LIGHTLY REGARDED.
The sanctity of an oath has come to
be held in the lightest regard. In the
recent bribery cases, tho speaker said,
his blood was made to run cold by
hearing men, generally regarded us re
spectable citizens, perjure themselves
in tho most flagrant manner. Juries
have become unreliable because they
are "fixed" beforehand nnd, "all in all,
that upon which our great system of
jurisprudence rests is rotting.
Tho perpetuity of American institu
tions depends on the common people.
We must have moral education in tho
public schools. The reform cannot
originate from thu masses themselves.
The masses do not know what they
want.
In the same manner and for thj
same reason that we must force. civil
ization in the Philippines and a k'nowi-r-de
of Enllsli on tho Potto Rlcuns, we
must force moral education on the
common people. College men with a
full, well-rounded education, such as
is provided at Princeton and Yale,
must see to it that the American peo
ple are properly educated. Because of
their peculiar fitness, resulting from
their policy of training alike the phy
sique, tho mind and the morals, these
two groat Institutions must accept tho
greatest burden of this responsibility.
Homer Greene was next Introduced
to respond to "The Smaller College."
No banquet hereabouts! is complete
without Mr. Greene. Ho is eagerly
sought by committees for about every
prominent dinner that occurs and, al
though his stress of professional du
ties Is extremely exacting, his readi
ness of wit and easy command ot
language saves him from any great
amount of labor In the way of pre
paration and consequently ho can af
ford to accept a more than senil-occa-slonal
Invitation.
In referring to the controversy as
to tho elllcacy of largo and small col
leges, Mr. Greene nptly said, "It Is not
fo much what college a man gets into
as to what a college gets Into him. rt
does not necessarily follow that the
big men all come from tho big col
leges. Rome of the biggest men our
country has produced are from the
smaller colleges. Tho college does not
create; it simply developcs.
THE SMALL COLLEGES.
"I yield to no man In my admiration
for tho great Institutions of learning
and tho power they exert In the world's
advancement. Yet If It were not for
tho small" colleges, nearer to their
homes and moro within their means,
thousands or tho brightest men would
havo thirsted In vain for the education
which so largely contributed to their
brilliancy."
George G. Joyne, '07, of WHkC3
Barre, who was to respond to the toast
"Princeton Spirit," could not attend,
nnd Rev. Dr, MoLeod was called upon
to make tho response. Ho contented
himself with a few happy remarks,
Referring to tho recent foot ball game,
ho provoked a long and hearty laugh
by Instancing It as un occasion when
"tho spirit was willing, though the flesh
was weak,"
The dinner was conoluded with the
singing of tho soulful "Old Nassau."
Preceding tho dinner there was a
business meeting, at which ofllccrs were
elected as follows: President, Benja
min F. Dorrance, 'OS, AVilkes-Barre;
vice-presidents, H, W. Dunning, '83,
AVilkes-Barre; W. 13. Gunster, '37,

place for the next dinner.

REFORM IN
THE CITIES
SUBJECT OF AN ADDRESS BE
FORE MEN'S UNION,
Tho Speaker Was tho Hon, Clinton
Rogoro Woodruff, of Philadelphia,
Who Has a National Reputation as
r Worker for Reform in tho Ad
ministration of tho Affairs of Cities,
Extension of tho Homo Rulo Idea
to tho Government of Cities Is
Nocessavy.
Tho Hon. Clinton Rogers AVoodruff,
of Philadelphia, gave un Interesting
talk on the subject of "Municipal Re
form," before tho Men's union last
night, In tho lecture room of the Green
Ridge Presbyterian church, and ably
advocated the necessity of electing good
men to responsible positions. Mr. Wood
ruff Is chulrmun ot tho union commit
tee for the promotion ot ballot reform
and the meidt system In Pennsylvania,
and secretary of tho National Munici
pal league. Four years ago he was
elected to the state legislature on the
Republican ticket und was re-elected
two years ago. Ho Is an ardent advo
cate ot reform, and hears u national
reputation for his work In that line.
Rev. Dr. I. J. Lansing, of tho Green
Ridge Presbyterian church. Introduced
Mr. AA'oodruft to tho audience, which
consisted of a very large number of
members of the league.
In the course of his remarks Mr.
Woodruff paid his compliments to the
political machine and declared that it
was simply the Incarnation of trusts In
politics, nnd an exemplification of the
same idea. He argued that It repre
sents tho consolidation ot political In
fluences in the hands ot a few.
"You know the evil that follows In
the wake of the ring," ho said, "and
you know that the ring itself keeps In
tho background and puts forward pup
pets. AVhlle A'un AVyck may be de
feated, Croker continues in authority.
If you aro going to have power con
centrated, put It Into the hands of tho
men In ofllce nnd you can hold them
responsible. As things now stand, we
have concentrated power, but it is in
uon-olllcal hands."
THE SPOILSMAN.
Ho then paid his respects to the
spoilsman, saying: "Ever since the
days of Andrew Jackson, the spoilsman
Itus existed with his luxurious and very
un-American ideus regarding public
otlice. I hold that It Is as Justifiable
for the cashier In a bank to pay per
sonal debts out of the bank's funds as
It Is that debts may be paid by the be
stowal of public olllce. There Is need
of extending the merit system in this
country, and have no men appointed to
public olllce unless perfectly qualified.
Men aro In ofllce to do the public will
nnd work and should bo elected with
no other purpose.
"In Philadelphia we have ten thou
sand officers who do the bidding of a
political boss and look to him for guid
ance and protection. Their test is
fidelity to the political interests of their
boss alone. This means a good deal In
districts where the policeman is the
only official with whom the people ever
come Into contact, and where he is a
potent factor."
Mr. AVoodruff declared that an ex
tension of the home rule Idea Is nec
essary nnd spoke against municipali
ties' action in continually looking to
the legislature for remedy und re
dross. This, he said begets indiffer
ence and laxness. "Home rule," he
said, "means that every municipality
shull determine its own destiny and
develop Itself free from the Interfer
ence of a legislature, largelymade up
of country members, Ignorant of mu
nicipal affairs."
In speaking of municipal corruption
ho remarked, "I will not say much
-about official corruption. You know
too much of it here in your own city,
where city officials have been found
seriously wanting. You havo passed
through a critical condition, and you
will go though another, if you are not
vigilant. Citizens leave loo much to
the legislature, too much to the law,
and do not do enough themselves.
FAIL TO REALTZE.ri
"AVe havo talked about the privi
leges of citizenship and failed toeal
lzii its duties. AVe must work just us
hard for civic righteousness as for
any other kind of righteousness."
He concluded his address by de
claring, "The great difficulty In mu
nicipal affairs is that we wait for
others to solve the great problem. It
Is our duty to do our share In tho
work whether other people do theirs
or not."
'A general discussion followed, In
the course of which Mr. AVoodruff
mentioned a number of Interesting
fuja regarding tho Philadelphia Mu
nicipal Leusuu. It now has u. mem
bership bf 33,000 voters, and Is recog
nized as a party by the Quaker City
authorltes. Several officials have al
ready boon elected by the league.

YOUNG SHOPLIFTER
TAKEN INTO CUSTODY
Fourteen Year Old James Campbell
of Fourth Street Arrested in
Jonas Long's Sons1 Store.
James Campbell, a 14-year-old boy,
living on Fourth street, was arrested
In Jonas Long's Sons' store last night,
where ho was caught in the act of
stealing some small sliver trinkets by
one of the special detectives employed
by the firm. A number ot these officers
attired in citizens' clothes aro scat
tered through tho store, and ono of
these noticed two small boys acting In
a peculiar way last night.
He followed them around and about
9.30 o'clock arrested young Campbell
on the first floor. The boy's compan
ion, who was about tha same age, es
caped. When searched a number of
s(nall articles taken from the basement
and first floor counters were found in
the lad's pockets.
Patrolman Malott was summoned and
the young shoplifter escorted to tho
Center street station. 'Mayor Molr will
give him a hearing this morning-. The
management of the store declares that
each of these shoplifting cases will bo
