Contcnnial Association, Circulates

Up Intorost and Incidontally Gath
ers Up Some Good-Sized Contribu
tions More Plani of Celebration.
The booming of the semi-centennial
celebration was well started ycateida,
when Abe I. Sahm cdculatcd among
the stoies of the town, stirred up new
Intel est nnd enthusiasm In the plans of
the city's Jubilee, and Incidentally
gatheied up stibscilptlons to the
amount of $300.
Mr. Sahm Is ddector of the puhlbltv
depaitnu'iit. as It weie. of tin mmi.i
centonnlul association and he hn i. . 11
wisely cunson, for there Is no man .11
all the town who Is so well fitted for
the position. Mr. Sahm has Ideas. 1 x
chock full of them, of the sound st
kind; he hns the ability to expiees him
self tn winds that cany lone with
them, and he luiri an abundant e of pei -seveiance
which Is sine to win out In
any aigument or debate. Mi bahni
started to woik with a will yesteiday
morning, and by evening his lugh and
his talk and his wit showed lcsults. tm
he had stibscilptlons for the sum men
tioned befoie. $300, besides setting have
the pent-up enthusiasm of the business
men over tho celebration, which the
piojectois hope to make a big one In
Mr. Suhm was well pleased with how
he nnd Fiank llonunclmeyei', who was
n ready second In the work of ycsterda,
weie iccelved. Hut the business men
aie only a patt of the population of the
town, and the celebration ! one that
should nppeal to the ptlde of every
resident of tho city; hence Mi Sahm
and his co-woikeis will aim to Interest
every poison In the city In the Jubilee
plans. They will seek to disabuse the
minds of the people of the Idea that it
is only the latger subset Iptlons that
count; and they stilve to obtain a con
tilbutlon from eveiy peison, according
to his means. No one, they believe, who
has the least pilde. will pass by with
out ronti Uniting to the fund, no matter
how small the amount. The dollar, and
even smallei, fiom the one whose cir
cumstances will not permit a laiger
offeiing, will be as acceptable as tho
big contilbutlons, for these small
amounts fiom thousands of peisons will
make a sum that will assuie a cele
bration which will be creditable In the
highest ilegieo to the town's Inhabit
ants on the occasion of Its littleth
To encouiage these small subsci Ip
tlons, .Mr. Sahm will designate business
places wheie they will be iccelved, and
where ceitlflcates of mcmbeiship will
be given in letuin for tho offerings.
Tho names of these glveis, iiiespecllve
of amounts, will appear also In the
ofllciol tecoid that will be published of
My. Sahm pioposc.s to have a souvenir
button inauufactmcd and sold, and
hopes theieby to iippieclahly augment
the general fund. He has adopted a
happy Idea in the selection of an em
blem. It will be the pictute of the
three biciliei hoys who aie astraddle
tho b.uk ,11 a mule, such as has hap
pened on the i,ind,ii of a Scranton
bank and vvhlih will hoicadlly icealled.
The legend "Scnil-Centennial. 1S31
1101," will Hud a place on the button.
The price of the buttons will bo ica-
sonahle. and the sale, It Is believed, will
leach into the thousands.
Open-air meetings will also be ai
ranged for by Mr. Sahm, at which the
piomlnent men of tho town will be
pieseni to speak on the why, how and
whciefoio of the centennial celebia
tlon. The labor, f internal and beneficial 01 -ganlzatlons
of the town have aheady
taken a deep Interest In the celebration,
but It t. Mr. Sahm's puipose to Increase
this Intciest and awaken an enthusi
asm that will sweep like a wave over
the united bodies of the town.
The Central Labor Union has begun
to piepare for Labor day, which will
occur on the second day of the semi-
centennial celehratlon. The demon
stration on that day will be the most
Imposing ever attempted In Carbon
dale. and among the ways and means
for the event will be a picnic at Kil
leen's grove, which It Is expected will
icallzo an acceptable sum to meet
the expenses of the day, the reception
and entertainment of visitors and the

labor leaders and others conspicuous In
The picnic will be held next month,
