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
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

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.

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.
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
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.

Engineers, Firemen and Pumprun-

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
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
"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
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.

Scranton and Lancaster Broke
Even Yesterday. ,
Scranton will today see her last game
of professional base ball for some time.

was over ho released all of the players
and paid them In full.
The Scranton players and the Lan
caster team will piny at the park this
afternoon at the usual hour. It will be
a benefit performance for the men and
there ought to be a generous attend
ance. While tho members of the Scran
ton team have been with us they have
proved themselves gentlemenly and re
liable and their going ought to be made
pleasant. Nenrly all of them have al
ready secured positions with other
clubs. Second Baseman Logan Is wanted

Manager Lawson has decided to get
together a strong amateur team and
play two games a week with the best
teams that can be obtained hereabouts.

Scranton played two games with Lan the park yesterday. The locals

The afternoon game was one of the
most loosely played games seen at the
park this' season. 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:
