School & Co. Not Disposed to Wait
Any Longer for Their Money
The new llussoll road roller purchased
by tho city from School & Co., of New"
York, six weeks ago, Is likely to ho
seized and taken buck because ot the
city's failure to pay the $2,500 owing
on It.
The appropriation ordinance con
tained an Item of J2.D00 for the purchase
of a road roller, but the estltnatca com
mlttee at oho nf Its later meetings cut
it out. In the meantime a resolution
was passed by councils authorizing the
recorder nnd director of public works
to give tho old road roller nnd $2,500
for a new ono of the Improved Russell
When the now roller wns delivered
Director Roche thought to make a pay
ment of $1,000, on It by applying tho
money Appropriated for repairs of nnd
supplies for the road roller. City Con
troller Costello refused to view tho re
placing of tho old road roller by a now
ono as "repairs" and declined to coun
terslgn tho warrant.
The consequence Is School & Co. can
not got any money until after the next
appropriations In April, and not being
content to wait this long nre threaten
ing to seize the roller.
Their agent, Herbert Glvln, nfter an
Interview with Chairman Oliver, of
select council Frldny night, started out
with tho determination of taking pos
session of the roller. He Is looked for
at city hall, today.
How Various Interests View the Re
sult of the Action of the In
dianapolis Convention.
On all sides It Is agreed that the ac
tion of tho Indianapolis convention will
prolong tho strike, but opinion Is very
much divided as to whether or not It
will eventually win the strike for tho
On the companies' side It Is asserted
that neither this nor anything else can
make the operators budge a hair's
breadth from their present position.
The miners' leaders declare that with
enough money to give the strikers a
bare living, the fight can be prolonged
until the operators are forced to give In.
Superintendent C. C. Rose, of the
Delaware and Hudson mining depart
ment, said: "The relief fund will pro
long the strike, of course, but not to
any considerable extent. According to
the leaders' own calculations, the pro
posed fund will give each striker only
$2 a week. Men who were earning $4 a
day will not be long content with not
much more than twice that much a
Another superintendent, who declined
to bo quoted, expressed the opinion
that this new move would prove ns big
n fizzle as did the attempt to Hood the
mines by calling out the steam men.
"The anthracite miners," he said,
"were told that the calling out of the
engineers, firemen and pumprunners
would bring the operators to their
knees. This terrible bolt was hurled
against the companies and It proved a
boomerang. This was a big disappoint
ment to the strikers. Next they were
led to believe that even more heroic
measures would be taken to break
down the operators' solid front a gen
eral strike was to be ordered. After a
month of this hope the strikers were
doomed to another disappointment. The
substitute plan of relief looks nice on
paper, but when it comes to be put into
practice It will be found to be still an
other disappointment. When this third
disappointment comes, you can look for
a break.- Tho strike leaders have played
their last card. It has no show of win
ning, and when It is generally seen that
It is not a winner the rank nnd flic will
cry quits. The termination of the strike
depends on how long It will take the
rank nnd file to see the Impracticabil
ity of supporting half n million people
by weekly subscriptions."
Executive Commltteeninn Henry J.
Collins, at present In charge of District
No. 1, declares the relief scheme to be
the one and only thing to win the
strike. "Enough money will be sub
scribed," said he, "to give every striker
a living, and that Is all they are ask
ing in the way of outside help. They
can be counted upon to stay out till the
strike is won, if It takes all summer
and winter."
William Corless, one of tho prominent
members of the Central Labor union,
gave It ns his opinion that, the miners
have their strike practically won. "This
relief," said he, "will at least keep tho
strikers In line until the end of Sep
tember, nnd It is a certainty) to my
mind, that with the approach of winter
the operators will be disposed to open
negotiations for a settlement. '.lie de
mands of their wholesale customc. . for
an opportunity to muko big stakes out
of empty coal bins, with unthraclte
commanding a fancy price, will force
them to a settlement, oven though their
own desire to cut off losses nnd make
big stnkes for themselves should not
move them to surrender."
Mr. Corless represents tho Typo
graphical union In tho Central Labor
union. Tho printers voted a contri
bution of $1 a week each to tho miners'
light. Mr, Corless asserts that all
classes of tradesmen will respond lib
erally to tho miners' call tor aid, and
that the fund will be even larger than
the most sanguine now count upon.

Good Sized Audience Listened to tho
Pastor of All Souls' Unlversalist
Church in Guernsey Hall Yesterday
Afternoon Number of Local Labor
Leaders Occupied Seats on the Plat
formSpoke of a Number of Fal
lacies In People's Minds About tho
Labor Question.
Rev. T. B. Payne, of tho All Souls'
Unlversalist church, delivered a strong
address yesterday afternoon at Guern
sey hull, on the. subject of capital and
labor. The audience which heard him,
while not overly large, on account of
the threatening weather, was represen
tative ot tho city. i
The meeting of the Central Labor
Union wns adjourned nt 4 o'clock, In
order that Its members might attend
the services and a large number of
them filed Into the hull, shortly after
wards. The executive board was asked
to sit on the platform nnd did so. Tho
members who compiled with Rev.
Payne's request were: President John
H. Devlne, Vice President Daniel Cole
man, Recording Secretary E. C. Pat
terson, Financial Secretary George II,
Gothler and President William H. Cor-'
less, of the Typographical union. Na
tional Representative C. O, Pratt, of
the Street Railway Employes' union,
was seated with them.
Secretary C. S, Seamnns, of the board
of trade, was an Interested member of
the audience, In which could be seen a
number of other men prominent In lo
cal Industrial circles. The services
were opened by the singing of "Nearer,
My God, to Thee." Rev. Payne then
It Is a source of satisfaction, my
friends, to welcome so many of you hero
this afternoon, to consider with me, at
this time, one of the great question that,
at the beginning of the Twentieth cen
tury, arc so profoundly commanding the
attention of mankind tho present uni
versal conflict between capital and labor.
I am not here to Inveigh against cnpl
tal, nor to make a special plea for labor,
except as the facts shall condemn the
one nnd plead for the other. I make no
prentcntlons , to superior wisdom or
knowledge. I trust that every word I
may utter may be Indicative of Intelli
gence, fairness, calmness, fearlessness,
honesty. So far ns I may be In sympa
thy wllh ihe one side or the other, I
trust I shall be able to conceal that sym
pathy. Such sympathy, I, of course,
have. No matter to which side that
sympathy inclines, I honpstly believe It Is
the logical result of my thought. Instead
of my thought being the outcome of my
I am not here to tickle you with any of
the tricks of tho orator. To oratory I
make no clnlms. I am not here to np
peal to your prejudice, your selfishness,
your hatreds, or your passions. I am
hero solely, today, to do a bit of think
ing with you. And, certainly, If any
question engaging man's nought In the
present hours needs sucn dealing, It is
tho question of capital and labor.
It Is not my purpose, this afternoon,
except Incidentally, to speak of tho pres
ent contest being waged In theso valleys.
Neither can I hope. In the short time at
my command, to speak of many phnses
of the problem thnt interest you individ
ually. Rut, before I have finished, I
trust I may have helped some of yuu, at
least, to see tho matter a llttlo more
Now, to do this, T want, first of all, to
clear away from the problem a thick
web of fallacies that we have spun
around it by our Ignorance, prejudice,
selfishness, haired. Tills web has already
becomo'so thick thnt many honest, Intel
ligent, broad-minded Christian people to
day are absolutely, it seems to me. un
able to i-eo tho real problem at all. Now,
what arc these fallacies?
1. The-first ot these fallacies to which
I desire to call you attention Is this:
"Has not a man a right to do with his
property ns lie is a mind to?" My an
swer K "No." The law grants to every
man tho privilege of using his own as ho
Is a mind to, up to tho point where, by
its abuse, mlsuso or non-use, he Invades
tho lights of the majority, makes against
public policy or public morals. Not for
Insurance, but out of pure cussedness,
you set Ilro to your uninsured house and
burn It to tho ground. You huvo done
with your own as you were a mind to.
Tho law steps In and punishes you fe
vercly. Another Illustration: Suppose all
tho farmers of tho world tomorrow agreo
to sow no mnro wheat for five year?.
They will do with their own as they were
a mind to. At tho end of a year, men,
women and children In every land begin
to cry for bread, yes, stnrvo for Its lack.
What would be the result? Why, up to a
certain point, the governments of tho
world would do nothing; beyond that
point they would take possession of tho
world's wheat flcltli and till them them
selves, If the farmers would not, slneo
It is against public policy of tho nations
that Us people shall dlo of starvation.
Now, suppose, Instead of "farmers," you
use tho wolds "coal operators."
2. Another common fallacy running
through tho thought of many pcoplo who
dlscusi capital nnd labor takes this fom:
Tho fault, sin nnd crimes of a small
minority, they Impute to all of tho snmo
class or organization, or people, Jf this
is fallacious nnd Illogical when dealing
with merchants, lawyers, doctors, clergy
men, teachers. It Is no less fallacious and
Illogical when dealing with "labor,"
3. Still a third fallacy Is thh: Thnt
labor bus no right to say to cnpltal any
thing about tho conditions under which
It will work.
4. Hero Is nnnthcr fallacy pervading
tho thought of many people: Thnt labor
Is moro dependent upon cnpltal thnn capi
tal Is upon labor, wny, mess you tins
can't possibly bo truo. It Is capital that
Is the dependent partner, Whenever It
seems to be otherwise, It Is becuure

Look nt It. There was a day when man

my friends, It Is capital that Is moro de
pendent upon man than man is upon
6. Still nnother fallacy controls the
minds of a good many good people, and
It Is this: It Is nl right for tho mer
chant, doctor, lawyer, teacher, clergy
man tho well-to-do classes to desire and
strive to Increase their dally and yearly
Income, but tho less well-to-do class
those who receive the least dolly nnd
yearly Income, and who do tho world's
dirtiest, hnrdest and "extra hnzardous"
work ought to bo satisfied with whnt
they get: It Is so much moro than their
fathers got. Ah, consistency, thou art a
Jewell I would to God moro men pos
sessed thee.
C. A sixth fallacy rolls Itself up In this
form: Cnpltal In furnishing men work,
food, clothing, shelter. Is a philanthropist.
Somo say It Is so especially through tho
"company store." About this I do not
know, never having had an experiences
with such stores. Leaving them out of
the account, therefore, let us look at this.
Whnt do men go Into business for? Where
men go into business, I have always un
derstood It Is because they think they see
reputation, fame, power or money to bo
mndo In It, or, possibly all four. Now, 1
may bo wrong; If so, I shall bo too glad
to be corrected. If my undci standing Is
true, then It Is for self, first that cap
Ital goes Into business. "
Hut, somo one says, "sec all tho labor
capital employs." Yes, but capital can't
make, reputation, fame, power, money
only through men, so of course It must
have them. Though absolutely necessary
to capital, Judged by the main purpose,
labor and what It gets ore but Incidentals.
When cnpltal makes all the reputation,
fame, power, money It can or wants to
with flfty men. It never employs very long
a hundred, What nro so many Industries
turned into trusts for? Why. be
cause capital Is thereby enabled to
pile moro work onto Individual men
and cut down expenses, by tho dis
charge of hundreds nnd thousands,
no matter how much they need
work, money, food, clothing, and shelter.
Some capitalists arc philanthropists; but
capital ns such Is far from being a phil
anthropist. I wish It were. I believe tho
day will come, when men will take more
pride in dealing generously with lnbor
than In piling up vast fortunes to give or
leave to churches colleges, hospitals and
libraries; when that day comes then, but
not- till then, has capital a right to ba
called a philanthropist.
Thero are many more of these fallacies,
dear friends, which I should like to pur
sue and show to you, at this time, though
some of them are most subtle and Illusive.
Time forbids.
The A, It, C of the "Cnpltnl and Labor"
problem, dear friends, Is right here: In
the sight of God, In the sight of man,
which should be moro highly thought
of, recelvo tho greater Interest, sym
pathy, help, the man or tho dollar? Cap
ital commits mistakes. Is selfish and ty
rannical; labor commits mistakes, is sel
fish nnd tyrannical; now I nsk you as
honest and humane and Christian men
nnd women, In splto of It nil, which
docs God think the most of, In spite of
nil their faults, tho man or the dollar?
The one you honestly believe God thinks
tho most of. In spite of all his faults,
you ought to think tho most of.
Now, In a sort of unconscious way,
all men agree to this, and yet, tho mo
ment many people Iwgln discussing tho
question, and think of tho "Ignorance,
selfishness, passion, sins of this or that
individual laborer," they loo sight of
tho fact that that 'very Individual has a
vnluo in tho sight of God Infinitely nbovo
tho value of all tho dollars in the world,
sinner ns he Is.
Hut this Is tho problem In outline only,
nfter all. Let us cut through tho skin
and get Into tho very heart of It. Pos.
slbly, wo can do this better In this way.
This Is it wonderful world In which wo
dwell. Who made It? "God," wo say.
Which Is the greater and moro wonder
ful? God or the world Ho has made?
Of course we say, "God." But, tho as
tronomer tells us thnt tho most powerful
telescope rovenls nnd counts 'JOO.OOO.OOO
worlds, the vast number of them larger
than this earth. Now put those worlds
all together over here, and God over
there, aro not nil thoso worlds plainly
greater than God? "Why, no," you say.
A God that can make so. many worlds Is
simply declared still greater than all ot
His works combined. Yes, that must bo
I bold In my haid a watch. It Is ono
of tho Wnltham company's best, that
some friends of mlno onco thought I do
served, ns I wns about to Icavo them.
Who mndo this watch? A man, a watch
maker. A watch Is a wonderful thing; it
Is most delicately constructed; it Is ot
great value to tho world. Wo could not
get along without them wo say. Which
Is of tho most valun to tho world, watch
es or tho men who can mako lyatches?
Which is tho greater of tho two, tho
watch, or tho man who mndo tho watch?
You say tho man. Hut, over here In a
warehouse nro a billion gold watches.
Over hero In a factory aro a few thou
sand men who made thoso watches.
Which Is tho greater, which Is of moro
value to the world, that billion of
watches or tho few men who mndo them?
You hnvo no hesitancy In saying "tho
men nro greater, aro of moro value to
tho world," Lot ua go a atep further.
Over on the other sldo aro 100 men who
own that billion of watches; over on
tho other'sldo nro tho 2,000 men who mudo
tho watches. They get Into n quarrel, a
contest; tho 100 men nnd the 2,000 men,
both do foolish, unwise, Hellish, unjustl
llublo nets, Which Is worth to tho world
tho most, tho 100 men and their billion of
watches, or tho 2,000 men who can mako
another billion of watches?
I hold In my hand a five-dollar gold
pleco. I got It at tho bank tho other
day. It seemed to bo tho largest pleco
of gold I could get there, for somo rea
son. How did this live-dollar gold pleco
get hero, You say "men mudo It." Which
Is tho greater thing. In nnd of Itself, this
gold piece, or men who enn mako gold
pieces? Your answer, nf course, "why,
men who can mako gold pieces." Hut,
over there In somebody's vault thero
nro n billion gold pieces, Are not a
billion gold pieces worth moro to tha
world and greater, thrrofore, than the
few thousnnd of men It takes to mako
them? Now, somo pcoplo think they nie.
Hut If a man who can mako ono gold
pleco Is greater than tho ttilnur ho 'has
made, then, that ono man, though ho
icmaln only one, Is greutor than a mill
ion billion gold pieces a billion times tho
vnluo of this ono In my hand. And If,,
that million billion gold pieces nnd that
ono man get to lighting between them
selves, because tho man Is greater In
his nnturo and rapacity than all that
gold, then to tho end of time ho should
hnvo your Interest, sympathy, help,
though he sometimes "drinks," though
he sometimes Is solflsh, though ho some
times commits great wrongs.
That million billion gold pieces may all
bo destroyed tomorrow, but If the men
who made them nro saved, they will
muko for tho world another million bill
ion such gold pieces; but onco destroy
tho men who can mako thoso greatly

knocking tho hopes nnd anticipations
of the First Lancers, in camp at
Luke Lodorc. Saturday, the down
pour of rain disturbed the day's
programme, and yesterday the show
ery weather that was served kcot,
perhaps, G.00O excursionists away
from the lake's shores; and the rain
made the camp and the camp ap
proaches so mucky and rivery that the
soldiers were greatly hampered In their
drilling, and the visitors were filled
with rebukes for the weather man.
Yesterday was looked forward- to ns
the big day In camp. It was the day
of tho military mass, which has been
celebrated but twice in this section. It
would have been an eventful day, but
for the unklndness of the elements. In
stead of the 7,000 looked for, perhaps
from 1,509 to 2,000 were present. The
mass, however, was not lacking in any
of Its solemnity or impressiyeness. In
some respects It was 'more impressive
than If celebrated In the open air. The
pavilion was chosen as the place for
services, when the morning came with
its rain and heavy clouds, that por
tended a day of moisture. The altar
was erected on the balcony of the
orchestra. It was In nowise decorated,
but overhead, round the balcony, circled
two rows of bunting of small American
At 10.30 the Lancers, with their glist
ening lances, left the camp, under com
mand of Colonel Phillips, and proceeded
across the ball field and through the
thick grove to the pavilion. Here they
formed In a hollow square, directly In
front of the altar. In the midst of tho
square was the color-bearer with an
Immense silken American flag.
At 11.30, mass was commenced. Rev.
J. V. Moylnn, chaplain of the regiment,
was celebrant; Rev. P. J. McMunus, of
St. Paul's church, Green Ridge, was
deacon, and Rev. Thomas Handley, of
St. John's church, Honesdale, sub
deacon. Thomns White, of Honesdale,
a student at St. Bonavcnture's college,
Alleghany, was master of ceremonies,
and James Murphy, of South Scranton,
was acolyte,
Tho choir of Holy Rosary church,
North Scranton, rendered the music,
singing Welgand's mass In G. The solo
parts wero sung by William Lynott,
Miss Margaret Thornton and Mrs.
John Lynch. As the offertory, Mr. Ly
nott sang splendidly an Ave Maria.
Miss Libble Ncary was organist.
Just as mnss commenced, a rainfall
like a small-sized cloudburst came
down. As the rain swept through the
grove, the noise drowning the sound of
tho sacred music, it gave a spirit ot
awo to the feelings awakened by the
solemn service, with its military as
pect, contrasting so strangely with the
religious and devotional spirit of the
ceremonies. The spectacle and the feel
ing produced will hold a lusting Im
pression on the multitude, that almost
