PROMINENT DIVINES WERE IN
Rev. Albert Hatcher Sivritli Formal
ly Assumes the Pastorate of the
North Main Avenue Baptist
Church Address by Rev. R. H.
Conwell, D. D., of Philadelphia;
Rev. J. H. Haslam, A. M., of Wil
Hamsport, and Rev. W. J. Ford, of
If a man Is to be Judged by the com
pany ho keeps, tho North Alain Ave
nue Haptlst church has a rich find
In Its new pastor, ttev. Albert Hatcher
Smith. Ho was Installed lasl night
with formal exercises In the Audi
torium, the participants In these ex
ercises were close personal friends, the
main features of tho exercises were
three addresses, and these addresses,
of their character, were three of the
best, It Is no extravagance to say,
tluil a Scranton audience has ever list
ened to In one night.
A mention of the speakers' names Is
nn earnest of this. They were ltev.
Russell H. Conwell. IX D., Philadel
phia's eminent divine, author mid lec
turer: Rev. J. H. Haslam, A. M pas
tor of the First Baptist church of
AVIlllamsport, and Rev. AV. J. Ford.
A. AI.. pastor of the Oreen Ridge Hap
tlst church. Rev. Jlr. Smith was for
years n member of Dr. Conwell's con
giegatlon and wrote his biography. Ho
was a school friend of Ilev. Air. Ford,
and a life long friend of Rev. Air.
It was well that the Idea of conduct
ing tho exorcises In the church was
given up. The Auditorium Is one of
the most capacious meetings rooms In
the cty. but Its capacity was taxed
last night. In the audience were
churchmen from all over the city and
nearly every Raptist congregation was
represented by Its pastor and several
On the platform were seated tho
speakers Rev. Air. Smith, Professor
Elkanah Hulley, principal of Keystone
academy: Rev. G. K. Guild, of the
Providence Presbyterian church: Dea
con Giles L. Clark, of tho North Alain
Avenue Raptist church, tho two solo
ists. Airs. Albert Hnteher Smith and
Airs. It. S. Smith, and Allss Kllzabeth
DR. GFILD OFFICUKD PRAYKR.
After tlie church choir, under the
direction of Hugh Williams, had ren
dered the anthem, "Rejoice Ye Daugh
ters of .ion," prayer was offered by
Rev. Dr. Guild and Deacon Clark then
introduced Professor llnlley as chair
man. The first speaker was Rev. Air. Ford,
lie had as his theme "Scranton as a
Field for Christian Work."
The need of longer pastorates was
one of the things ho dwelt upon. In
the thirty Raptist churches comprising
tlie Abington association, lie said,
there have been ninety-nine different
pastors in nine years. Long pastor
ates are possibly not an unmixed
blessing, he argued, but the highest
efficiency in church work cannot bo
obtained ) frequent changes. That
the Baptists are not the only sinners
In this respect, lie cited the fact that
of all the English-speaking Protest
ant pastors who were In Scranton
when he came here nine years ago,
only two are j-et in the city.
The corruption disclosed in city hall,
the thirty-two divorce cases on one
week's argument court list and the
large cosmopolitan population evi
denced by the fact that twenty-one
different nationalities were represent
ed in applications for citizenship lust
year were mentioned ns indicative of
some of the fields for missionary work.
Scranton has been given a bad repu
tation, he said, but lie wanted it un
derstood it was not nn evil city. In
no other city in the country, ho de
clared, were the churches better at
tended; no set of newspapers gave
comparatively more space to religious
news that the press of Scranton; Scran
ton nion of wealth are especially gen
erous givers in their contributions to
charity and Scranton pastors are uni
formly well treated.
"Tho Demands of the 'I'wcntlelh Cen
tury Upon Our' Churches" was the
subject of Rev. Dr. Conwell's address.
It would not be a Conwell address if
it had anything nf the hackneyed or
commonplace about it. Ho made his
argunientuni "Strive less to get to
heaven and more to bring heaven on
AVhen Christ prayed, Dr. Conwell
went on to say, Ho did not pray that
we should go to heaven. The Savior
prayed, "Thy kingdom come."
RKVKRSIXG R1BLI0 DOCTRINK.
During the last century wo have been
reversing the whole Bible doctrine. We
have been too anxious to get to heaven.
Ours has been a sort of Chinese
church; we have been going at things
backwards. Tho church of the new
century Is going to bring heaven on
Clergymen are dally called to preporo
persons for death. Tho Savior bids us
get him ready to live and ho will be lit
to dlo any time. '
Evolutionists of the lasl century held
that nuin was descended from some
Imperfection, Ho had origin In somu
sort of a protoplasm and passed from
one state to nnother till he attained
the present perfection of his awfully
sinful Imperfection. At the last ses
sion of tho world's congress of scien
tists, the chairman declared that ho
was ready to believe that God mado
everything: that everything was made
perfect at tlrst and thaU evolution Is
progress towards perfection that was
lost. Tho next scientific congress can
be expected to have Its chairman de
clare that evolution Is tending towards
another Paradise on earth.
Some of the means of bringing heaven
on earth were interestingly pointed out
by Dr. Conwell. and Illustrated In that
Impressive style of which he Is a mas.
"Make men more healthy," was one
of his charges. Act tho Good Saniail
tan, It Is essential to tho spread of
the gospel that men should be healthy.
Religion s hi need of better digestions.
It Is the dyspeptics who will arltichse
tho new pastor. They are good, well
meaning touls. It Is not their fault.
The blame lies with bad biscuits.
A gymnasium was oiio thing above
all others a church should establish.
Dr, Conwell declared. "If God ever
called upon us to do anything, He
called upon us to establish a gym
nasium," ho said, and In Illustration of
this, told of the wonderful worth that
has been accomplished In muklng peo
ple healthier and happier and Inci
dentally attracting attendance to the
church, by the gymnasium he has had
established at his church, the largest
Protestant church In America.
We would give a thousand .years of
effort to be able lo think and write
ns beautifully as Longfellow. The
angels have greater nullity In this re
gard than Longfellow. When Christ
prayed "Thy Kingdom come." he
meant that wo should have minds like
the angels. Therefore establish ichooln
and help bring Paradise back to earth.
Some of our long, dry prayers In the
pulpits effect little more than the
prayer wheels In India wheel.i on
which prayers are Inscribed nnd which
prayers nre supposed to bo repeal oil
by tho owner of the wheel every time
wind, water or roiiio other such means
gives It n. revolution. Nothing practi
cal Is accomplished towards what the
church must tend, nothing to make a
Paradise on earth.
Do practical good, have a bro:idr,
deeper love, less sectarianism and more
real modern Christianity.
The address of Rev. Air. Haslam was
a scholarly and Interesting treatise of
the qualifications of, a good minister.
Kuthuslusui was a prime essential, ho
contended, unit he defined enthusiasm
ph "God within us." It Is necessary
that a minister should be a. scholar,
but more necessary was It that he
should be an enthusiastic herald of the
truth, having the genuine nllrulslli!
spirit, wholly abandoning himself to
Christ nnd looking welt to his own
heart-fellowship with his Savior.
All three speakers spoke warmest
encomiums of Rev. Afr, Smith and con
gratulated the church on having se
cured so able a pmtor.
The music by the choir and the solo
work of the new pastor's talented wlfo
and the oholi's regular soloist, Airs.
R. S. Smith, was will in keeping with
the general excellence of the pro
gramme of exercises.
On Alay 17 tho Scranton public will
have the tlrst opportunity of enjoying
a lent urn by Rev. Mr. Smith. Ho will
fcpaak at the Auditorium on "Some
Folks nnd Other Folks, or the Great
est Problem of the Ccutur.v."
HAS ASKED FOR OPINION
City Controller Howell Wants to
Protect Himself Before He Will
Countersign City Warrants.
City Controller Howell has refused to
countersign the salary warrants for
the month of April until such time as
City Solicitor W.itfon furnishes him
with a. written opinion setting forth,
among other things, whether or not tho
controller and the recorder would as
sume any liability in cis... JI.ese var
iants were countersigned and paid, at, t
thnt If. when this had been done, the
Supreme court should hand down an
opinion declaring tho ripper bill uncon
stitutional. Tho various clt.v employes have be.. n
crying so for their April salaries that
Just as soon as the appropriation ordi
nance was signed the city clerk loft.no
time in drawing the warrant and
sendlni;- them to the recorder for his
signature. The recorder signed them
and sent them os-er to the controller,
who, realizing that he was under heavy
bonds, decided not to countersign them
in a rush, but to wait until the citv
solicitor bad given him legal advice.
The controller in bis communication
to tlie city solicitor also asks that offi
cial to decide for him to just wliaL ac
count he shall transfer unexpended bal
ances from last j-car which are not
provided for in this year's appropria
tion ordinance, tlie section directing
that they be merged into the general
judgments Item, having been stricken
out by select council, reinserted by
conimon council and again stricken out
The controller also asks for some In
formation regarding tho legal status of
the auditing committee. The members
of that body have decided that they
will make a fight in council for the
continuance of their powers and pre
rogatives, and with this end in view a
resolution is to bo Introduced In coun
cil on Thursday night directing the
controller to refuse to countersign all
warrants, the bills for which have not
been passed by the auditing commit
tee. At Alonday night's meeting of the
committee the only bills which were
presented were contracted before April
1. None of the bills contracted since
thnt date or since Scranton organized
as a city of tho second class were pre
sented. This was because. It had been
decided at a meeting of the recorder
and bis cabinet, held on Alonday morn
ing, to have all heads of departments
ignore the auditing committee and send
their bills, after approval, directly to
In his communication to the solicitor
the controller asks If It will bo pos
sible for councils to curtail any of the
powers vested in him by 'Section 1 of
Article IX of tho Ant of lSSfl, govern
ing cities of the third class, which act,
It Is believed, is preserved by tho rip
per bill. Tho particular section of tho
act which the controller refers to In
prescribing his duties snys: "He shall
examine, audit and settle all accounts
whatsoever In which the city is con
cerned." During his term of office, which has
already extended over two years, the
controller has never heforo questioned
the right of tho auditing committee to
pass upon bills. Those who are going
to make the light for the resolution
directing him to refuse to countersign
warrants for hills not passed by tho
committee maintain that It will go
through councils with n lush.
