tho completion of the beautiful struc
ture, lie said that theie is nothing
tlmt sqieuks hotter for a community
nnd town than good churches- and
schools. This has been a year of
'hitrch building nnd wo are Just over
the border. Thcie Is more than this
the coming generation of men and wo
men will look upon this building with a
pleasute. I have sometimes felt that
r was surrounded with the same pleas
ant circumstances as our brothers. I
trust that In the coming year this
work will bo prosecuted as It is pro
ceeding now. 1 extend my heartiest
I!ev. Dr. WhaliMt, of the Ilorean,
linptlst church, of this city, said In
patt: "I regard this as one of the
most pleasant duties connected with
my ministry to bear to tho rector, the
wardens and vestrymen of Trinity
church the congratulations of Berean
church. In these times of unbelief,
when the wot Id Is disposed to say
that the element ot Christianity la
lacking, this Is a most emphatic de
nial. J bear to you the sincere con
gratulations of my people, who twelve
years ago were receiving 'the congratu
lations of tha Pioneer City by the
completion of a better clement, of
church structure. I bear to you tho
congratulations of fellowship, that rec
ognizes the unity of purpose, the unity
of our common Lord. I bear to you
the sliioeiu fellowship of a people
that love you. We are all delighted
In the completion of this church. The
families names that ate associated
with thesB beautiful windows, nltnr
and other furnishings will be names
that will bo mora associated with this
church In after years. More beautiful
than the church even Is the spirit of
sweet sacrifice for which this all
'stand. 'More bsautlful than the tern
..pie of Mono, more beautiful-than tho
lights which come streaming is on us
Is tho spirit of fcttcrlflce which has
erected this temple. May It be said, of
everything and. of this church that the
Lo(-tl is'ln His holy temple."
"-Rev. Churles Lee. of the First Pros
byterlun church of this city, was the
next speaker. He reltcruted tho ex
pressions of congratulations that hud
gone beforu and salu he was very surn
that they hnd come from the hearts
. ot the speakers. "We heartily wish
"that God'u blessing will gteot you
every time you come Into this sanc
tuary. Wo heurd rend tor the llrst les
son the words of Solomon." Ho spoke
of the wonderful transformation that
Solomon's temple made In tho deserted

address of tho nfternoon. Ho said,
among other things: "Let mo express
to tho bishop, these clcigymcu and this
congregation tho very deep sense of
my delight. If I were In perfect physi
cal condition It would bo a pleasure
for mo to express my feelings. And I
beg you, my dear brethren of Trinity
church, to believe me when I say that
tho fact of my presonco Is tho token
of my feelings. Nothing elso could
have moved me from my sick room."
Dr. Sawyer expressed his appreciation
bm a Presbyterian clergyman of tho
things, that had been done hete. As n
member of tho church universal ho ex
ptcssed his Joy that tho Trinity par
Ishloncra have n true Idea of tho wor
ship of Ood, He praised them for de
fining and defending tho chancel iih
representing tho imminence of God.
His speech was devoted latgely to
eulogies of tho appropriateness ot tho
fittings of the chancel. Ho praised tho
Kplscopal clergy for maintaining the
dignity of tho ministry by their np
parcl, by their observances of tho can
onical laws, und closed nn eloquent
appeal by saying that ono of the sweet
est prayers he had ever listened to in
a Presbyterian church was one com
mitted to memory by a young clergy
man from tho prayer book of the Kpls
How Dr. Israel, rector of St. Kuke'H
church, Scrnnton, was next announced.
Ho opened his remarks by baying that
he brought heartiest greetings from a
sister parish. Ho then referrod to an
epoch In tho history of St. Luke's
chutch, when a sheriff's notice wits
nailed on the church doors, and of
how tho worldly sneered and of tho
sore distress the parish was In; how
a man came to tho rescue, bade' defi
ance to tho sheriff! how that deliverer
way a Caibondale man, and for that
icason St. Luke's church toduy sends
grateful greeting. He told of the many
who have, on their departure from this
city, afllllnted themselves with St.
Luke's, and of how they have been
made welcome. Ho compared tho
church with the home, nnd with a
pathos that brought team to many
eyes, told of the family assemblies, of
tho empty chairs both at homo and In
the church, of the loved ones that had
gathered In both places day after day,
but will not come again, nnd said that
the church was the true home, because
round and In It centres the love of a
lifetime. "You have bulldcd better
than you knew. .Thls Is verily the
houso of God."
Hew Dr. Jones, rector of St. Clem
ent's church, Wllkes-Dnrre, also ex
tended congratulations and said that
he had recently passed through a work
of this kind and was therefore better
enabled to appreciate the Joys of the
rector and his parishioners, lie likened
the building of a church to the build
ing of the temple on Mount Ulon.
Itt. How Dr. Talbot, bishop of tho
Central Diocese of Pennsylvania, made
the concluding rematks. He opened by
reminding His hcatcis of his piopile
tary Interests In this church, for the
reason that the bishop of n. diocese
was trustee of all the churches. He
drew out smiles by saying that the
rector of St. Luke's should bo careful
not to appear too gruteful to Carbon

DEATH WAS NEAR.
Elmer Giitman Whirled Around a
Shafting Sovero Injuries.
ICtmcr Grltman, 17 years old, son of
Mr. and Mrs. Samuel S. Grltman, at
IS Hlchtnond avenue, had a mervclloUH
escape from death yesterday morning
whllo at his work nt the Empire silk
mill nt Simpson. Ah It Is, ho lies ul
his homo with a broken leg, raised
from head to foot, nnd perhaps In
Klincr Is employed to look nttcr the
machinery In the mill, which Is all un
der the main flooring, to provide
against Just such accidents to the
help as he met with yesterday. In tho
course ot his duties he has to clean
tho shafting. About 10 o'clock yes
terday morning, while engaged In pol
ishing tho shafting, he felt n sudden
tug at the coiner of his tightly-buttoned
blouse, and beforo ho realized
hit predicament, ho was drawn up by
the belting and set rapidly rovolving.
Ho Is a lad that weighs about 175
pounds in spite of his years, nnd tho
space between tho top of tho shafting
und the floor beams Is but fourteen
incites. The machinery was whirling
away at the rate ot 120 revolutions a
minute, nnd It was fully half a mlnuto
before the machinery could bo stop
pod, so he must have been dragged
Into that narrow hole nnd out again
about sixty times. Tils clothes did
not give wny under the tenillu strain,
but when he was released they wro
found to 1mj cut Into ribbons all the
wny through to the skin.
As soon as ho had boon released,
Superintendent Krleder telephoned for
n. sleigh to take him to his home nnd
ulso telephoned for Dr. Lowry to go
to Gtitnuin's house to bo In readiness
to attend him at once. Dr. Lowry
found that his leg was broken nnd ,
that he was bruised as described. Tho
leg was so greatly swollen that It
could not bo determined whether both
bones were broken. His head win
also badly marked at tho brow by I
coming In contact with tho beam
above the shafting, his eyes were both '
discolored, his chest had the skin
torn from It, nnd he fiequently ex
pectorated blood. .s he went around
the top of the shaft, his head would
strike, then his leg, nnd It Is a won
der that his skull Is not fractured. HU
underclothes, new yesterday, wer"
torn to tatters.
When seen by a Tribune man yes
terday ufternoon young Mr. Ctitman
was lying on a cot In tho parlor of
his home. He was able to tell of his
terrible experience with full detail,
und seemed not to have suffered much,

THE OPENING NIOHT.
Columbia. Fire Laddies Fair n Scene
of Exqulslto Beauty.
Columbia Hoso company's fair, which
will bo tho city's chief attraction dur
ing: tho coming week, opened In tho
Hurko building last night, and It tho
attendance was any criterion of tho
support tho fire laddies will recclvo
during the week to como tho carnival
will be a great success. Iletween 7
und 8 o'clock the threo local flro com
panies, headed by tho Mozart band,
paraded tho principal streets and at
tracted th,e attention of tho public to
the hall. For over a week tho lire
men's committees havo worked lnde
fatlgably arranging tho many details
for the fair, und their work has cul
minated most successfully. Tho hall
htiH been neatly decorated. In the rear
of tho loom arc four booths, screened
front tho rest of the room by an ar
tistic lattice wotk of blue, white nnd
yellow ribbons. In these ato sold
candy, cigars, soft drinks nnd fancy
work. They nro attended by a corp
of pretty young lady friends of the
firemen. In one corner, Just nt tho und
of the platform, Is a recess for tho
performers. It Is screened off by hand
some curtains. Tho platform, also, Is
adorned with plants nnd palms.
Foreman John Loftus was ehulnu.in
of the evening. He Introduced Hon. J.
J. O'Neill, who made tho opening ad
dles. Tho ex-mayor Is a staunch
friend of tho volunteer lit omen, und he
lauded them in must Ilattetlng terms.
Ho exhorted tho people to give tho
company tholr hearty support In this
venture, not nlone because it was the
Columblns' fair, but nlso because It
really is tho first public action taken
to arrange means to carry on tho
great clvlo demonstration which will
soon take place here In honor ot the
city's semi-centennial. He stated that
one of the most Important features of
that celebration will be fireman's day,
nnd It Is for this the Columblas ato
endeavoring to mlso funds by tho
present fnlr. And there is no body nf
men who deserve greater ptnlse than
do the volunteer firemen. They ato
the first to be called upon when there
Is urgent need of help, or when any
public demonstration Is to be held.
And so, I ask you to be generous with
them this' week: to mnkn this fair a
success. Hy so doing you will havo
the satisfaction of having done a. good
