THE AMERICAN KING.
Rev. R. F. Y. Fierce, D. D., Dis
courses on His Greatness Before
an Audience of Templars.
Coeiir di: Lion and Mellta command
cries of the Knights Templar sent a
largo number of their members to the
Ponn Avenue Baptist church last night,
where they iheard a sermon dealing
mine or less with their order preached
by the pastor, Itev. Dr. K. b Y. Pierce.
"Modern Crusaders and Their floldon
Deeds" was Us title and. delivered with
the long rows of uniformed knights
seated In front of him. tUielr white
plumed hats by their sides and with a
large emus, u blaze of electric light
above him, the address was given avIUi
a genuine martial ring and fervor.
Dr. Pierce argued that, great, as were
the achievements of undent knights
and crusaders, there are every-day
modern actions just as high and noble.
Jn the course of bis remarks ho em
phasised the fact thai in Uhls country
merit is sure of prompt, recognition,
and narrated a. brief anecdote of King
Kdward of ICngland. in which bis ma
jesty, then Prince of Wales, was quot
ed as making the stalemenL that cer
tain persons waiting to he ushered into
his presence wearing unconventional
Prlncj Albert coats should be informed
that none but those garbed in full
dress suits would henceforth be grant
ed an audience. Said Dr. Pierce: "lie
made a very foolish remark, for lie
added with a sneer after giving the
full dress order: 'This Is not it re
public' I would like to face King Kd
ward and toll him that that word 're
public' is never to be said with a sneer.
"America's king is public sentiment.
Public sentiment speaks in America.
When the tinseled admiral tells the
gunner he cannot come among the offi
cers' ranks, the American king1 says:
'Admiral Sampson, you have lost your
prestige, any man in the navy, though
ho conies from the ditch, is entitled
to the highest gift in tile service.'
"And when the brave lcttnston,
after penertatlng the mountain thick
nesses, encountering constant peril,
leads back his captive, the American
king says: 'Make him a brigadier
general.' And when a few men with
gold braid on their shoulder said: 'Xo,
Kunston hasn't graduated from West
Point; he can't be a brigadier,' great
McKinley nevertheless said: 'He shall.'
The American king said lie should ht
and while his reign lasts America need
never fear for its future."
Dr. Pierce spoke of the tendency
among some ecclesiastics to speak bit
terly against the order of Templars
and wonderlngly demanded what re
proach could be uttered against an or
ganization sworn to defend women and
ohildren and champion untight but
goodness and truth.

Topic Discussed by Rev. Rogers
Israel, D. D., in St. Luke's
Church Last Night.
Rev. Rogers Israel, D, U., In St.
Luke's church finished a series of Sun
day evening Lenten discourses on
"Everlasting Life." Among other
things, the doctor said:
"There are many who speak of eter
nal life as being something Avhlch be
gins after death. This not tho teaching
of the Holy Scriptures, for they tell us
that eternal life begins here on earth
Avhen a mutt's spirit becomes Idled with
the Holy Ghost. The Lord hath said:
'lie who belleveth in me hath everlast
ing life.' lie docs not say avIII have,
The doctor told how life after death
In paradise is a life of continual pro
gression, n broadening and extension
of the spiritual life. The final full
ness of the soul's fruition cannot be
imagined or estimated, he said.
"Beller in life everlasting," he con
tinued, "Is necessary lo deter men from
sin. If there Avas no prospect of a
future development of the individual;
if there Avas nothing but uncertainty
or extinction ahead, 11 Avoultl be hope
less to exhort men to lead a higher,
nobler and purer life When Ave think
of this we can thank God that He has
given rewards in order that men may
be excited to a sense of their duty.
"A belief In the life everlasting Is
necessary in order that men may weigh
the pleasures and accumulated wealth
of this world with eternity. When thiK
is done they Avill begin to realize the
insignificant part which they play In
tho great scheme of the universe. They
avIII begin to understand that their
life is but a mere cloud, a breath, a
smoke that rises and is instantly dis
sipated. "The belief In the life evei lasting
encourages us to follow Christ and take
up His cross, the symbol of His suffering-,
in order that Ave may become heirs
of the Kingdom which He In Ills avoii
derful goodness has prepared for us.
Let us all with devout hearts say
again and again: '1 believe iu the Holy
Ghost stud in the life everlasting.' "
ST. PETER'S CATHEDRAL.
Pontifical High Mass Was Celebrated

the doors yesterday morning at 10.!!0
o'clock hen the celebration of a sol
emn high pontifical mass avus begun
by Right Rev. Bishop M. ,L Hoban,
The altar was mostelaborately decor
ated and presented an indescribably
beautiful appearance. It Avas banked
Avlth Easter lilies from the bottom to

ovenhung from the very highest point
and poured In riotous profusion over
the top of the tabernacle, There were
over two hundred lighted caudles on

John aiettson, S, J,, professor of elides
at Fordham college, X. Y. lie dwelt
upon the lesson lo be drnAvn from
Christ's resurrect Ion and what It meant
to tho Christian world. Christ's vic
tory over death, he said, differed from
Iho victories of other men In tho
world's history, Inasmuch us from
death he brotighl forth life.
To properly emulato Christ, ho said,
man must be victorious over his ilcsh
and over his intellect, ilo must have
complete subjection over these, for
there Is no victory without complete

for the lin'oilnitloii of the leadeit of 'flic
Tribune, many of whom ate my supporteri, 1
beg leave to submit. I In: following repot t, cover
ing my that yeat's ivotk In this district: The
Anti-Saloon league is a federation of the Cliiis
t Lin cliiin.li against the saloon. Pnparllian and
undenominational, with a stale organisation in
tlihty-Mieti stales of the United States and 11
national organization toetlng Its woik ' a
whole. I have thru brandies of work, agita
tion, law enforcement and legislation. In a
Moid the league stands for the enforcerncnL of
tin! law as we lion' li.it It ami git bctlrr laws
ai fail as we tan.
On lliu line of agitation I bate turnled most
Ctlcmively within Ihe bounds of the distiiit,

heaiing in Hie l.iige-.t church or Hie smallest
si huol houw. the people bale lieuid mc gladly

The lei iii8 upon which f hate gone are that a
hit will ofterings lie given me for the woik of
the league. Upon these terms I will gladly re
Snd lo any call for an addtcs,s in any school
licii'e or ilmrcli within the bounds of my dUtikt.
Pining Ihe pa.t year I h.ive delivered 301 tctu
pirame addics.-C5 In at leat an nvciaiie run
((legation of ;HHJ persons and thus I luve tpoken
lo ul. least otl.OeO peinons on ihe subject ot tem
perance in the Scranton district alone.
Besides the uliove nddrcssiM 1 have made eight
temperance uddies--es outside of the Siranton
distrifl. namely: One at Moiristown, Ji. J.
four at Philadelphia, and three at WiHI.nu-port.
in connection with my temperance work I have
conducted siv special revival meetings, of fmni
one to two weeks' duration in which l."fl per.
mils have pinfei-ed convulsion and joined the sev
ci.il i-litirihed whcie the meetings were held.
In (oinpiny with the pastors duting these
mieliugs i have made JM pastoral vislLs lo the
homes of Uie people where we have prayed with
them and cNhoilcd them peisonailv to a belter
Ill some of these homes I found Hie father or
son under the p.lvv of the tiger and addicted
to the drink habit, and by the help of Ihe Mas.
ter J have been able to lead a lew of the.-e to
Hie feel, of the Cniclllrd One and today they
are rejoicing iu a sober life.
Along the line of agitation several thousand
copies of the Keystone fHlizeu have been dis
tiihutcd. It. is an eight-page monthly tem
perance pajr piloted and sent out by our cen
tral committee from our home office in Ham's
burg. This paper dimes every month lo those,
who subscribe any amount for the suppoit of
our work and will continue lo come, filled full
of led hot temperance mailer as relating lo our
vvmk in the old Keystone, stale.
STOOD NOMA" IIV HIM
I ivMi to say for the pies-s of my ilUlmt that
it ha.s stood nobly hy me ill all my woik and it
1 have been able to accnmplMi any good in
defence of the hunie, chinch and stale, the pre-s
has been a Aery great factor in the woik for
they way they have helped mc in reporting my
woik and keeping- the meetings befoic the people,
fn all the public meelings held I lave passed
an enrollment caid against the saloon and have
thus far enrolled between siv and seven thou
K.u.d people against the saloon iu tho Scianlon
dediict. We hope lo continue this eniolliuent
until we have the last man, woman and ihlld
pledged against the saloon.
Iu all the public meetings held we luve aiso
i undated a subscription card asking for j ear
ly suUscliptions to tins woik, of the league. The
date of (he snb-i rijilion begins with the dale of
Hie meeting held. This money goes for the Nip
pon of the work of the league,
l-'ioin siiih pledges alieady taken we have col
pried or had lolleited f l,l.10.5.i, which has been
paid out as follows: 1 forvvanled to llariisbuig
io the home office S.!."i7.(i1 lo as-ist ill paving the
expense of printing and sending out Hie Key
stone citiVen and other printed matter, which we
are continually sending to the people iu differ
ent pails of the slate. Soma of tliia money
was usid by the icntral committee iu its woik
bcfuie the pieseut leglslattue at flauisburg.
I expended SolO.S:! within Hie bounds of Ilia
S'li'.iuton district for dclccllve service and ex-pin.-es
connected with the prosecution of pel
sons for the illegal sale of llniior and my ovn
liaveling expenses iu doing Ihe woik of Hie
district. This leaves a balance of $,iLSf! lo ap
ply on my salary wlilili Is all the money 1 have
received to pay inn peisoually for the woik
done as district superintendent.
Don't cliaigu me thin with being In this vvoil;

Many a Headache
Comes from the Constant slraitiinu of the eyes by studying
or reading by a poor light. This can be avoided by a tem
porary outlay of $3.50, by buying one of our Perfection
btudent Lamps. We say, temporary outlay, as you will
soon save the price of the lamp in oil, as the candle power
is greater with less consumption, so necessarily a saving.
