REVOLT IS NOT
t ( rt' "! v O 11
FOREIGN SPEAKING MINERS
The Reported Meeting for the Fur
pose of Lining Up the Revolution
ists Fails' to Materialise Polish
Miners Meet in South Scranton
and Declare They Are with the
Union to the End Bishop Hoban
Speaks Briefly on the Strike Try
ing to Prevent Local Famine.
If theto Is u revolt ot any appreciable
extent among ihe foreign-speaking
members of the mine workers' union,
said revolt has thus far succeeded in
preventing Itself from being uneurthed.
Thut three men, purporting to repre
sent 3,000, published a card Friday,
saying they and those they lepresent'ed
Intended to revolt, Is true. It Is also
true thut they gave It out that n big
meeting would be held on the South
Side, Saturday, to line up the revolu
tionists. If It is true thut thero are
more than three men In the movement,
nnd that even these three had n meet
ing Saturday, the fact remains to be
Saturday It was given out that a
meeting was to be held in the Inde
pendent Polish church, last night, and
supposition would have It that ut last
something tangible was to come out of
the stories of the foreign-speaking
miners' revolution against the union.
It developed that the meeting was
called for the purpose of celebrating
the one hundred and eleventh anniver
sary ot the Polish constitution,' and
that the strike question only came up
Incidentally. After the meeting got
through with the strike question, how
ever, thero was no guessing us to
where the Poles of this congregation
stood. Speeches were made by Rev.
Frank Hodur, pastor of the church;
Editor Dangel Langowsky.ot the Straz:
Rev. F. Aieiek, of Plymouth; Anthony
Schlosser, of Duryea, district commit
teeman Of the United Mine Workers,
and Rev. A. Scsitnoski, of Wilkes-Iiarre.
Each spoke In denunciatory terms ot
the "stray sheep" who had circulated
the report that the Poles intended to
desert the union, and each speaker was
cheered to the echo. The meeting unani
mously and enthusiastically adopted
resolutions directing Committeeman
Schlosser to bear a message to Jolin
Mitchell that tho Poles were with him
and the union to the bitter end.
BISHOP HOBAN SPEAKS.
At the conclusion of the pontifical
high mass at the Cathedral, yesterday
morning. Bishop Hoban spoke briefly
regarding the strike in an advisory
way. He said:
Whether or not the miners sited for the best
is not for ine to judge. At all cirnH a stiike
ha been declared and it is feared it uill be a
long btiuggle. 1 deem'' it pioper to appeal to
j on, a Catholics, to be on the tide of law and
older, no matter Thaf conlingemy may arine.
t am not a piophet and un not attempt to tell
how long this strike mil last, but unless Hip un
fomecn happens it will likely be a long and a
bitter stmggle. )'nc or nix men seated about a
table in N'cw- Yolk aie capable of dictating poll
ties wliitli may giievously affect all o I'enns; !
nnia, and other stales as well. They arc power
ful, and united. They !e considered well the
consequences of a niiijers' i-triKc and probably
luie prepared to fight to the bitter end.
Consequently it teema that a long stiike is
incwlRbtc, and if theio i a long strike there
will bo hardships and suffering. When mn aie
hungry and ece tl.eir wlven and children liiin-ii,
they are the more susceptible to the prompting
of demagogue?! who would nige Hieni to deeds of
violence. There arc in this and the other mining
illstikU sociaJisM of (he lowest type who fpig"t
God and inytlu.jp is no hereafter, who imarialily
endeavor on occasions of thifl kind, to pro;oka
disorder. I idinonlnh jou to lieed them not, but
be on the hide of law and order.'
1, an well as .Ton, hope the impels will win,
though I lute mv doubts as to their winning.
Iloweiei I sincerely trut and pr.ij lliey will (,ain
I ak yu who :ue thiowu out of woik, lot
only niiiieis, but .ill others lailioidmeii, shop
hands and the like not to rest ipu'elly at home
waiting for tiie fnke to end.. He up and doing.
Seek wiiic iinplojinent. P not lit jouisilf be
forced to eat the be.ul ot ihaut.i, fioni the
hands of llio-c who may cast it up liter to jou
and jour thildieu. l.ip economiiall. If the
.strike should last for six or h?cn months, low
many of Ihe mlneis could stand il?
In concluding, the bishop asked all
who were thrown out of employment to
take the total abstinence pledge at least
while the strike Is on, and uyged nil
Catholics to pray that the Holy' Ghost,
whose feast was being celebrated,
Should direct the hearts of both em
ploye! s and employed to do all things
for the best, that the day might soon,
come when we would all live together
MERCHANTS TO MEET.
The wholesale and retail merchants
are to have meetings tomorrow to dis
cuss the question of suspending cred
its during the strike. The wholesalers
will mept In the afternoon and tie re

Large numbers foreign miners are
going back to their native lands to

Impressed with the Idea the strike will

arranged to be away that long. Net a

is estimated that fully C.00O Poles. Hun

Sosthones Lodge Celebrates Fifty
seventh Anniversary of Grand
United Order Yesterday.
The members of Sosthones lodge,
annul United Order of O'dd Fellows,
the colored organization, celebrated the
fifty-seventh anniversary of the or
der's formation yesterday afternoon
In Guernsey hull.
Sosthones" lpde comprises among Its
members nearly all the representative
colored men of the city nnd tHey turn
ed out in large numbers yesterduy af
ternoon. The majority of, them were
clad in black coats and wore high hats.
They marched to the Delaware nnd
Hudson railroad station where they
met '"Rev. Mr. Bumury, pu'stor of the
'African Methodist church at Wllkef
Barre, who was the giiest of honor urid
(he speaker of the day.
A procession was formed and Rev.
Mr. Bumury was escorted to Guernsey
hall wheie a large number of other In
terested colored' people and' members
of the 'Household of Ruth, the femuje
branch, had gathered. Worshipful
Master M. B. Howard presided and
there was some exceedingly good sing
ing by a special chorus, tle membeis
of which occupied seats on the s'tape.
Rev. Mr. Bumary, who is a speaker
of more than ordinary ability, made an
address on fraternal organizations In
general and the Grand United Order
In particular. The' latter organization,
he said, is the first fraternal and ben
eficial organization ever formed among
colored men and is tlie only organiza
tion which lepiesents in Its member
ship the very best that is in the Amer
ican pegro today both Intellectually
He based his remarks largely on the
quotation from the book of Genesis,
"Am 1 my brother's keeper?" and de
elated most emphatically that every
man's life has an effect on other men's
life and that Odd Fellqwshjp is based
upon the laws of nature In that It seeks
men to become useful and of assistance
not alone to themselves but io other
The government, he said, guarantees
men certain rights among others, the
pursuit of happiness, but It does not
guarantee happiness. "Odd Fellow
ship," said he, "gives a man happiness
because it touches the benevolent, so
cial and moral nature of its members."
He exhorted the Odd Fellows present
to be true to the principles of the ol
der. "Theie are a whole lot. of peo
ple," said he, "who think that when
once they're in Jesus they can never
get out no matter what they do and
there's a whole lot of Odd Fellows who
think when opce they get Initiated that
they'll always he Odd Fellows regard
less of what they may say or do or fall
Prayer was offered by Rev. Dr. D. S.
Bentley, pastor of the Howard Place
Methodist Episcopal church, who also
made a few remarks.
