that lie had carried from New York
and, as II was becoming burdensome,
he wished to unbosom and get It off
his mind. He said he had n feeling
toward one of the party, but It was
of a friendly character, nntl he desired
every one present to share It with
him. Ooorga A. Cullen was sum
moned to appear In the center of the
party and Sir. Ta'ylor in n, very neat
and appropriate speech presented him
with a beautiful watch fob with solid
gold settings and engravings appropri
ate to the occasion, and also a beau
tiful solid silver match sale with his

testify to the grateful feeling of the

given him, but earnestly thanked the
gentlemen about him for the evidences
of good feeling and regard which the
gifts brought him.

Reorganized Department Have
Now Taken Both Examinations.
One of tho ortlecrs of the Firemen's
Relief association explained to n Trib
une man yesterday Just what plans
that organization had under way for
continuing in existence after tho re
organization of the fire department.
"A great many mistaken notions
concerning this matter liavu got
abroad," said he. "and I think that
It is nbout time our position wns set
forth clearly and correctly. The Fire
men's Relief association ls'n chartered
organization ami will continue In c.x'
lslence after tin re-organlzatlon ot
tho lire department the same as nl
present. It will Include In its mem
bership both the volunteers who will
be disbanded and the members of the
re-organlzed department, including
permanent, bunk and call men.
"We shall "pxtlnue In control of the
funds now lit V treasury and of the
money now rt Ived from Ihe city,
this being the city's share of the lax
on foreign lire insurance companies.
This money wnl be expended as here
tofore In paying benefits to active llre
nien who may bo hurt while respond
ing to an alarm or working al a. lire.
"Many people have got the Impres
sion that sick benefits will be paid to
ex-volunteers out of this fund. Noth
ing could be further from tlio truth.
Benefits will be paid only to active
firemen actually injured while engaged
In active service.
"The ex-volunteers will, we believe,
remain members of tho relief associa
tion merely for old time sake. Tho
volunteer companies will be practi
cally disbanded, but theoretically they
will not be. Kach company has a
charter or its own nnd all will bo
amalgamated Into the one associa
tion. In case or a parade or re-union
the companies can parade as separata
"The board of directors of the as
sociation has been instructed to look
around for suitable rooms for the lo
cation of a club house and have prac
tically decided upon a building in the.
central part of tho city. It Is a. four
story building and three floors are for
rent. It is very probable that these
three floors will be rented and occu
pied by the association Just as soon as
the department is re-organized.
"It Is planned to lit the rooms up
as a regular club house and to fur
nish them with the furniture at pres
ent In the sixteen lire houses, nil of
which Is owned by the volunteer or
ganizations. Thej-e is more than suf-
iicituii gymnastic apparatus scattered I
among me sixteen companies to lit
up a gymnasium and it is probable
that one floor will be so fitted up.
"Bat lis will be provided and also a
reading room. In fact, the place will
be transformed into as cozy and as
comfortable quarters as are possessed
by any club in the city. There are sev
eral hundred men now members of the
volunteer department who spend the
best part of their idle time in the days
and their nights in and around tho
lire houses. The tlisbandment of tlio
volunteer department will mean the
throwing of these men out on the
streets, and we feel some place should
be provided for them.
"The active members of the re-organized
department will, of course, be
accorded tho privileges of the rooms
miring their Idle hours and will really
be the principal benefactors by the
(.nliiiua...-o of the relief association
We f(.el confident that no citizen or
the city who thoroughly understands
our position and plans will for a mo
ment object to the continuance of the
existence of the organization."

MEMORIAL SERVICE HELD
Eulogies Pronounced on the Late
James B. Nicholson, Grand Secre
tary of Grand Lodge of State.
Odd Fellows from all th lodges in
Scranton and vicinity attended thj
memorial service and eighty-second
anniversary of the establishment of
the order in America, which wns held
in Odd Fellows' hall, on "Wyoming
avenue, yesterday afternoon. The
memorial service was in honor of the
lato James B. Nicholson, grand secre
tary of the Grand lodge of Pennsyl
vania, who died In Philadelphia re
cently. Hon. James Molr presided over the
meeting and delivered an eulogistic
address on tho life and character or
the deceased brother, and prayer was
offered by Rev. It. F. Y. Pierce, of the
Penn Avenue Baptist, church. Tho
Silurian Lodge Glee club sang several
selections, David Jenkins rendered a
solo, and addresses were delivered by
Past Grand Master V. Gayloril
Thomas, Past Grand Master Piereo
and Past Grand Patriarch Edward C.
Mr. Thomas' address was an able
effort in behalf of the life ot an able
man. He said that Mr. Nicholson was
a giant among men In every sense of
the word. He measured up to the
highest type of elevated manhood. De
ceased entered into the work in Penn
sylvania In IS.","., having been initiated
Into the order in IS45. Thus he was
for over fifty-six years an Odd Fel
low. In fSGil he was elected secretary
of the grand lodge, -which office he
held up to the time of his death.
There was no man In the order bet
ter qualified than he was In the teach
ings and principles of Odd Fellowship.
His reputation was not conllned to
Pennsylvania alone, but as far as Odd
Fellowship extends his influence is
felt. No man was ever niorc loved,
esteemed and respected and no de
parture will be more regretted than
that of James B. Nicholson. He was
a. splendid specimen of man, morally
After a song by David Jenkins, Rev.
Pierce spoke on Odd Fellowship ana
its uplifting influences, also paying a
worthy tribute to the deceased, lu
whose honor the meeting was held.
Incidentally, Dr. Pierce remarked that
he himself has been an Odd Fellow for
twenty-live years and he felt that lie
shared with all Odd Fellows a sense
of per.ional bereavemen.t In the loss of
Air. Nicholson. All had lost a true
friend and tho order a wise counsellor,
He gave a beautiful word picture of
the relationship of man to man and
spoko with an earnestness that be
tokened a deep regard for the princi
ples of the order. Ho said that a
great procession of a million men are
marching to the silent tomb and wo
should all so live that we shall enter
Into immortality, and so llvo that wo
leave an Impress on other lives.
Tho closing address was made by
General Edward C. Deans, past grand
patriarch and representative to thu
sovereign grand lodge. He dwelt more
particularly nn tin accomplishments of
the order nnd Its founders, naming
Mr. Nicholson as one of the architects
and builders of the order In Pennsyl
vania. The meeting was closed with a
selection by tho glee club.

in tho List of Protestant Denomina
tions in the United States Some
lUiv. Luther Hess Waring, pastor of
Graco F.viingollcul Lutheran church,
gave un Interesting account before his
congregation last night of the growth
of the Lutheran church In tills coun
try. IIo told interestingly or tho first
Dutch Lutherans who came to this
country In 1621 nnd established them
selves in New Amsterdam, now Now
York city, but then a Dutch colony.
Tlio established church In Now Am
sterdam at that time was the Reform
ed church and for years, ho said, tho
Lutherans were compelled to submit to
what he termed "Infamous and cruel
persecutions." Heavy lines were Im
posed' upon Lutheran clergymen for
preaching the gospel and upon those
who attended Lutheran services.
In IGC-1 the English came Into pos
session of New Amsterdam nnd relig
ious toleration and freedom ot con
science took the plnco ol bigotry and
persecution. In 1C3S tho Swedish Luth
erans, lie said, begnn to emigrate to
this country and first settled In Dela
ware. Here the first Evangelical Luth
eran church erected on the continent
was built. The first translation of tho
Bible into u. heathen tongue was, made
by these Swedish Lutherans who
translated the Scriptures into the lan
guage spokeir by the Delaware Indians.
Though Protestantism had Us birth
in Germany, he said, It was not until
the early part of tho eighteenth cen
tury that tiny German Lutherans set
tled in this country. Though they
were the last to come thoy ue now
the strongest in numbers. They first
landed in 1701! in Georgia and largo
parties kept coming at frequent inter
vals after that.
Bey. Mr. Waring told of the growth
ot the Lutheran church throughout tho
world. He said that it is tho largest
denomination of the Protestant church,
numbering tiO.000,000 communicants.
The growth of the church in this coun
try has been marvelous, he said. The
number of Lutheran pastors In this
country since 17S0 he said was as fol
lows: 17S0, 70; 1S20, 170; 1830, f!00;
1S-I0, 100; 1S50, S00; 1S60, 1,200: 1870,
1.900; 1SS0, li.OOO; 1S90. 3.000; 1000. C.763;
The number of communicants of the
Lutheran church in this country in
1S00 was about 20,000, ho said. At the
present time there are 1,674,173 Luth
erans In the United States. In eighty
years the church has multiplied its
membership forty times over, he said,
and in the last ten years It has gained
500,000 members. It stands third in
the list of Protestant churches In this
country In point of membership out
stripping the Presbyterian church
which stands fourth.
"Wo are forging ahead at a surpris
ingly rapid rate." said Air. Waring In
conclusion, "and there is no telling
what God has In store for this part
of His zion."
