At thu quarterly convention of the

Rev. Father Curran advised the dele
Rates present to do all In their power
to Ret the societies they represented
out of tho rut in which they appeared
to have got settled and to arouso more
enthusiasm In the temperance move
ment than Is now displayed. He
pointed to 'the labor organizations,
especially tho United Mine Winkers,
who recently won a big MrugKle for'
higher wages, and urged tho temper
ance workers to pattern themselves
after such organizations.
It was decided after n groat deal of
discussion to conduct on entertainment
In St. Thomas college hall some time
within the next few weeks for tho
purpose of replenishing the dlsttlet
treasury. Tho arrangements for this
affair were left in tho hands of the
board of officers and a committee of
two members from each society.
It was decided to have pledge cards
printed and distributed In all the Cath
olic churches In the city just before
Lent, which oon begins. These cards
contain a pledge to abstain from thn
ue of Intoxicating liquors during tho
season of Lent and It was stated yes

them are led to forsake drink for all
The board of directors was Instruct

Tho following resolutions were unan

AWieiciis We, tho iMrgates of the Second dis

in bringing our societies up to the standard.
Itcsohcd, That it would be bencflciil to the

Outraged Public Crying Out "Give
Back the Transfers" to the Mana
ger of ft Corporation Which Has
Robbed Men of Honor nnd Their
Position in Society; Which Itsues
an Order That Is an Insult in the
Face of the People Upon Whom It
Has Lived.
Rev. Dr. Robert F. V. Pierce, pas
tor of the Penn Avenue Haptlst church,
preached n stirring sermon Inst night,
taking for his theme "Tho Cry of the
Oppressed." Ho spoke upon tho les
sons to bo drawn frorh King Davld'8
cry when ho heard of the death of his
eon Absalom: "Oh, my son Absalom,
my son, my son Absalom; would God
I had died for thcol Oh, Absalom, my
son, my son!"
The doctor opened his remarks by
describing at length the thoroughly un
principled character of Absalom, who
plotted against his father; had him
self proclaimed king, and who, while
leading his nrmy against the body
guard of King David, was caught by
tho hair In a trco and put to death by
one of David's armor-bearers as ho
hung helpless.
"Tho history of this wayward ton of
King David," said he, "bilngs to tho
young people of today the sad lesson
that as the way of tho transgressor
was hard In that day, so surely Is It
hard today. If wo live lives devoid of
honor and principle, wc shall die as
did Absalom, utteily unprepaied to
moot our God.
"The world says the wicked are suc
cessful, and It says let us plunge Into
this avenue of vice and that and
wo shall be happy and successful. The
success of the wicked, mark me, Is but
a short lived success. Sin, though It
seems to some attractive, is In the
end, death. Wo speak of failures, but
there Is no failure llko the falluto of a
human life. We speak of ruined tem
ples and of ruined castles, but there Is
no ruined temple that speaks oa sadly
na the ruined temple of the soul.
"There Is no ruin llko tho ruin of a
human soul. David's cry of 'My son,
myson,' has been the lament of fathers
for all tho centuries. It has sounded
and resounded, echoed and re-echoed
down the corridors of the world. It Is
the sorrowful wait of broken-hearted
mothers, who weep for the sons who
are lost to them.
"There are today fathers and moth
ers who are weeping for their boys
and girls and sounding the cry of David
of old. There arc some who weep over
the children when God calls them
home. To them I say: 'Ho still, weep
not for, far better Is It to weep over ton
dead children than over ono living one.'
"The city's cry at present is glvo
back the tiansfors. It Is the cry of an
outraged public and It speaks to tho
manager of a corporation which has
robbed them of their honor nnd of their
position In society; a corpoiatlon which
ibsues an order which It thtows na an
Insult in the face of tho people upon
whom It has lived.
"Hut thero is a greater cry that
should go up. Scranton Is robbed of
things far more precious than a few
tninfers. Reforc tho clock shall strlk
at the close of this present year more
than a hundred of tho boys of tho
city of Scranton will havo tinned tow
ard the drunkard's life and will lose
their better manhood and over fifty
girls will havo gone Into tho eternal
night of sin.
"Wo raise a hue ami cry about a few
tranfers and we let our boys and ghls
go down to an awful hell. What of
the cry, 'Give us back our sons, glvo
us back our daughters, glvo us back
our manhood, glvo us back our honor,
give us back our toul.' The cry come
again and ngnln, 'Oh, my child, my
"Theie Is another cry that comes
hounding over tho battlementst heav
en. It Is tha cry of Jesus Christ,
whose heart Is rent when Ho sees Ills
children drifting further and further
away from Him.
"He cries: 'Oh, world, glvo me back
tho men who In the prime of their
lives havo left tho flock and wandered
far away. Give mo back tho boys and
girls. Give mo back tho women. Give,
oh give, mo back those for whom I
died.' "
