DEATH OP MRS. SARAH L. PECK WAS THE WIDOW OF REV. OEOBOE L. PECK. He Was for Many Years One of the Host Prominent Clergymen in the Wyoming Conference Came Into This Region When It Was Almost a Wilderness Mrs. Peck Was the Mother of William H. Peck and Luther W. Peck, of This City A Sketch of Her Life. Mrs. Snrnh Louisa Peck died yester day at her home In Green nidge, aged S3 years. Mrs. Peck was the widow of Itev. George M. Peck, and wos born at Pompey, Onondaga county, N. Y., April 24, 1819. Thnt community, settled by enter prising New Englanders, has the double honor of being one of the oldest settle ments of the attractive lake regions of Central Now York older by several years than Syracuse and. of being the natal place of several people prominent In state and national life. Hon. Horn tlo Seymore, the distinguished governor of his state and candidate for the na tional presidency, and Mr. Wells, the founder of the well-known Wells, Fargo Express company, being among them. Mrs. Peck's -randparents, Jesse and Louisa Soprr 'Jutlpr, were pioneer set tlers of Potrr ;. Married In Connecti cut, their mi .-.c "late, in 1786, they emi grated to whit was then "The West," the beautiful lake region of Central New Yoik. taking with them their three children, among whom was Mrs. Peck's fath r. then three years old. Their next child, a son named Orange, was the fl-ft Fon born of white par ents In that community. He afterward came to pioniinence as a lawyer and died In Michigan. Mis. Pei k's parents, Merit and Sa bln.i HicMow Hutler, were married In 18l:i. TlTlr six children, now all de ceased but two, were the following: Joslah Rlgclow, Sarah Louisa, Mrs. Peck: I ''In. now Mrs. Baird, of Pom pey: Amelia, Ebenezer, for many years principal of schools 'in Syracuse and later at Whitehall. N. Y.; and Wells M., who served in the Civil War under General Custer, and for a long time postmaster of his native town, where he still resides. Her grand-parents were 92 at death. Her parents were nearlng their nineties, and most of their children reached an advanced age. The schools of her childhood home were supplemented for her education by a course in Cazenovia Seminary, an institution still noted for its wide cul ture and deep religious influence. It wun tlion under the able management of Rev. George Peck, D. D., and his son George M. Feck was among me students. From the pleasant associa tions of school life the president's son and Mies Sarah Butler drifted Into matrimonial attachments, and were married In July, 1839. Their wedding tour was a carriage drive to Forty Fort, Luzerne county, where they settled on a farm owned by Dr. Peck. But farming was not to be their life Tvnrit a rnvivnl of creat nower. con ducted by Rev. William Roddy, swept over the community, anu cnangcu mnnv nlnns. .Tnnnthan K. Peck was converted, and set his face toward the ministry. George M. Peck, the young husband, was aroused to missionary aggressiveness; -who, though a Chris tian from his youth, could not make the necessary sacrifice before. Mrs. Sarah Peck was led into the trans formed life and given such an expe rience as made her a consecrated and capable co-worker with her husband through the trials andt triumphs of a long life in the ministry. In tho unrlncr nf 1845 thev lotltcd the itinerant ranks, Brother Peck's first appointment being Salem, Wayne coun ty, whore twenty-five years earlier his parents had carried him an Infant child. Mrs. Peck's practical mind, en gaging manners, and educntlon, unu anoi tn timsp pnrlv duvs. made her life on the new field one of great value. Like a true wife, she not only rejoiceu iv. bur Viimhnnd'fl victories, but gave mind and heart to supporting him In battle. The pressure or revival worn foil ,mnn Vir.r snlrlt in common with his: the' shadow of death, in the loss of members and helpers: the lapses of Christians into worldllness; the bicker ings among contentious members; ute financial, the educational and other problems of the household; all these ,..o-o nindiv Hhared bv this noble wife and mother along with her husband on the series of charges to wnicn nis con ference appointed hint. Following is the list: Salem, two pastorates; Canaan; Beach Pond; Plensant Mount; Pittston, two pastor ates; Wyoming, Providence, two pas torates; Owego; Carbondale; presiding elder of Lackawanna district; Una dllla; Berkshire; Cherry Ridge; Clif ford, Park Place and Green Ridge. In the early years of their Itinerating five little boys joined the home circle as sons. The honored places'whlch some of their number afterward filled In tho church and business world Is a priceless trlbuto to the judgment and piety of both parents. There names were Merit B.

Peck; tho latter and Luther, both well known business men of this city, being tho only survivors. Impaired health necessitated Brother Peck's retirement from the Itinerant ranks In 1SS4. But he repudiated the suggestions of old age embodied In the term "superannuated," and insisted on hplnir rnrnlncrllprl with "HUnemUtner- ary" preachers of his conference. The same youthful spirit animating her hus band was equally characteristic oi jurs. Peck. Their beautiful home life in this com munity, where sons had come to honor; wjipm inniii nlinrnli tifws would natur ally float about them; where church papers would inform them of the con quests of God's battalions at largo; where a breathing spell before life's sunset enabled them to read choice classics, which both enjoyed, but tne pressure of earlier years prevented their fully enjoying; and above all, the reading of God's word and the rcstful ness of His presence, made the closing norind nf tliolr mnrrlpd life one of pe culiar charm. In this quiet retreat their golden wedding came ana went. Seven years more they were spared together, and the eighth year was near ly gone, when the call came to Brother Peck to change homes. Leaning more heavily now on her sons, and looking more longingly to heavenly fields which her husband had so often described when he would comfort the sorrowing, she lingered on till the recent Illness summoned her to a place by his side. Who that has seen that venerated couple In their parsonage dwellings, or visiting together in homes of their parish, or here In this quiet retreat, always so at ease with each other, can doubt that they are now reunited in glory! Providence Methodist Episcopal church, where two delightful pastorates were spent, was honored with their membership, when retirement became necessary. Shadowed by blindness in the closing months of life, he was led by his son Luther to the pulpit of that church, In August, 1893, and preached his semi-centennial sermon. Dele gations from the membership of thnt church have often visited Mrs. Peck In her home, and she hits lovingly and generously supported the church in all its interests. m DROWNED IN GRAVEL POND.

COURSEN ill THESE MEN WILL GO OUT. Engineers, Firemen and Pumprun- ners of N. Y., O. & W. Company Endorse the Strike Order. The only important development In the local mine strike situation here abouts yesterday was tlie decision of a majority of the engineers, firemen and pumprunneis employed by the New York, Ontario and Western Coal com pany to obey the strike order next Mon dav. ' , One hundred and four of the men met in St. David's hall, in West Scranton, and were addressed at length by Presi dent T. D. Nlcholls, of District No. 1, Who pleaded with them to obey tho strike order and assist the mine work ers to win their fight for better condi tions. He said that some of the fire men seemed to think that the mine workers' organization should have stood by them last fall, when they struck for eight hours. At that time, he said, the mine work ers had a tacit agreement with the op erators which was to continue In force until April 1, and under these condi tions it was deemed inadvisable to call them out jn sympathy. The mine work ers, he said, will now support the fire men, the engineers and the pumprun ners to the bitter end, if they go out on Monday. A secret ballot was taken on the ques tloon of going out on strike and a count showed that G8 were for a strike and -16 against. A motion was then made to have tho meeting unanimously indorse the strike, and it was carried by a viva voce vote. The men at the meet ing represented the following collieries: Briggs, Richmond, Pine Brook, Pan coast, Blue Ridge, Johnson No. 1, Ray mond and Ontario. The engineers, pumpruunors and fire men of the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western company will meet again this morning in St. David's hall, to heur the report' of the committee appointed to wait on President Nlcholls with a re quest that the strike order be with drawn. It is probable that a direct vote on the question of sttike or no strike will be taken. President Nlcholls leaves this m.orn ing for Wilkes-Barre, where he will confer with President Mitchell, who will be at headquarters today. With reference to the story that has appeared in the papers with reference to the St. Clair Coal company, of St. Clair, Pa,, having gi anted the demands of the. engineers, firemen and pumprun ners, W. H. Taylor, the president of the company, who resides in this city, said yesterday: "The story published In several news papers throughout Pennsylvania, to the effect that the St. Clair Coal company had acceded to tho demands of the en gineers, firemen and pumprunners, is untrue. The St. Clair Coal company Is in the same position with reference to its employes as all other big coal com panies in the anthracite region." Tho colliery of A. D. and F. M. Spen cer, at Dunmore, shut down yesterday for an Indefinite period. The mine pumps were boarded up and fires drawn from ull the boilers, thus doing away with the necessity of having engineers, firemen or pumprunners. The mules were taken to Salem, where they wilt spend the summer months among the clover. The closing of the colliery was prob ably due to tho demand of the union that the men engaged In sinking a new shaft on the property should stop work.

Lancaster made runs when they wanted to and put the ball just where they pleased. Wiltse was knocked out of the box, and Zimmerman, one of Lawson's new pitchers, was substituted for him. He did somewhat better, but even he was unable to stem the tide of victory. The feature of the game was the great run ning catch of Blakey. Lancaster played good ball. The score: SCRANTON. R. H.
