Executive Committee Has Been Em powered to Secure Suitable Quar ters for n Club House Benefits Are to Be Paid Only to Active Eire men All Applicants for Places ill Reorganized Department Have Now Taken Both Examinations. Other News. 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 organizations. "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." a it .. Dr. W. G. Fulton has completed tho physical examination or the men who tire applicants for places under the re organized lire department and, to use a slang expression, It is now "up lo" Director of Public Safety Hitchcock, Ho has tin- names of all who have successfully passed bolh the mental nnd physical examinations and their fate rests In his bands. The colonel will not divulge Just when ho intends to make the appoint ment and parries all inquiries along this Hue by slating that ho will an nounce the appointments Just "as soon as things are in shape." Ho is known to be considering the advisability ot appointing only tlio permanent men first ami waiting to appoint the niuu until such "time as a sufficient num ber of persons pass the required ex amination or making no appointments at all until enough men to nil all va cancies are secured. V V No provision whatever" has been n ade in the appropriation ordinance tor th purchase of boots, rubber coals or helmets for tho hunk or cull men. It Is claimed that by the lime a bunk or call man flls himself out iwilh these requisites that u great big parts of his first lx months salary will ho gone. Not only this, but no provision is made in tho appropriation ordinance for tho purchase of beds for the bunk men and additional permanent men, The beds now In use In the several hoso houses, with the exception of those used by the majority of ihe per manent men, are tiv property of tho company, who may be exported to, and who will, move them out just as soon as the volunteer force Is disband ed, lu fact, when the companies move out overjlhlng they own them will be very little left In the firo houses ex cept the apparatus.

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. Deans. 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 nnd mentally. 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. HOSPITAL WAS REMEMBERED.

WARING LAST NIGHT. He Told of the Early Establishment of the Lutheran Church in This Country; of the Persecutions It Suffered in Its Early Days ami of Its Rapid Progress to Third Place in tho List of Protestant Denomina tions in the United States Some Interesting Statistics. 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; I'M, 6.S14. 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.
