Abo Sahm, tho Director of tho De partment of Publicity of the Soml Contcnnial Association, Circulates Among tho Merchants nnd Stirs 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 uveiy respect. 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 birthday annlveisniy. 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 the Jubilee. 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 like The guests will Include national labor leaders and others conspicuous In labor circles. The picnic will be held next month, the date to be decided on at the next meeting of the Central Labor Union. To tho Pan-American. Trie Train Dispatcher John J.
