WARM DAY FOR
OPENING SESSION OF THEIR
Dr. George W. Phillips, City Super
intendent of Schools, Gave a Short
Address in Calling the Teachers to
Order An Address Was Also De
livered by President John Gibbons.
Prof. E. L. Kemp and Dr. George
E. Groff Were the Instructors Pro
gramme for Today's Sessions.
Nearly everybody but the teachers
had a holiday yesterday. They spent
tho sweltering afternoon In the High
school auditorium nnd heard us well ns
circumstances would permit, nil that
the lenrned speakers had to say at the
oily Institute. AVhlle It was rather
more comfortable there than might
have been expected, It was by no
means the summer resort most of the
teachers had left In order to be pres
ent. It was an exceptionally attractive as
semblage, for the faces were not worn
nnd tired and they wore light, pretty
frocks, and there were many llutter
ings of ribbons and glimpses of rosy
cheeks. Of course, there were men, In
groups more or less morose In hue, but
Dr. George W. Phillips was greeted
with much enthusiasm on the occasion
of his first appearance In an otllclal
capacity ns superintendent since his
cledtlon. In his own pleasant way, he
greeted the teachers, but with a cer
tain nervousness, ho said, because of
tho novelty of the situation. He re
ferred to tho unintentional fixing of the
institute on Labor Day as Its beginning
and tentatively suggested that if the
teachers preferred to come on Friday
afternoon, instead of the present occa
sion, they might but at this everyone
having already come on the present oc
casion, laughed outright.
OPENED WITH MUSIC.
The institute began with music, led
by Prof. C. B. Derman, nnd as if the
halo of the summer girl still lingered,
over those In attendance, the song .of
"JuariHa" was one asked for and the
refrain of "Ask thy sould If we should
part," ending with "Lean thou on my
heart," was sung with apparent re
gard for the sentiment.
Dr. Phillips Introduced President
John Gibbons, of the board of control,
who gave ono of his characteristic
speeches, brimful of good nature and
kindly expressions of regard for the
teachers. He spoke of tho salaries, nnd
declared tnat while tho board had
hoped to Increase them $10 this year, it
had been impossible, but that the
teachers would receive the missing $5
next year, and that the term would
also be reduced. The limit of salaries,
as regards length of service, has been
reduced from thirteen years to nine
Mr. Gibbons was greeted with a
storm of applause on his appearance
and it was evident that he is very
popular with the teachers. Dr. John
O'Malloy was the only other member of
the board on the platform during the
Prof. E. L. Kemp, principal of the
Stroudsburg Normal school, began a
series of talks, which he will give, tak
ing as his subject, "Geography," but in
Its relation to history. He said that
the history of the United States is
learning to know what sort of national
life we have and how we came to have
it. Physical features of the land Is one
of tho factors used In the development
of national life.
He spoke of Talne's history of Eng
lish literature, and that It began by
stating that the north of Germany is
the cradle of the English race. Much
of the English character can be ac
counted for because of that struggle
for life in the low countries, TJliere
the land had to be wrested from the
sea. There could be no history of the
Sahara Desert, no history of Green
land, because people had not lived
there to make history. The wonderful
wealth of America, is due to her extent
and natural resources. Rockefeller
could endow Chicago university and
plan to give away $284,000,000, because
the foundation of his wealth was in 'the
depths of the earth. No Spaniard
could endow a university with so much
money, because he had not the cash.
The Spaniards had no such resources as
Prof. Kemp then detailed his applica
tion of tho Introduction by showing
an easy method of teaching history.
The Revolutionary war, he said, is al
ways a hard proposition for tho stu
dent. If he would recall the fact that
Boston, New York, Philadelphia,
Charleston and Savnnnah were the only
points of conflict, because they were the
desired keys to the situation, it would
bo nn easy matter to gather incidents
ebout these centers.
.After an Intermission, Miss Louise
Connelly, of Newark, wns Introduced
and gave a charming talk, She Is con
sidered ono of the best Instructors at
Institutes in America, and is always
heard with vivid Interest, She Illus
trated In a graphic way the kind of
literature that the High school children
of Boston read, She urged tho teach
ers to learn .to know good literature
and teach tho children to know It. This
cannot be done by selecting an nuthor,
for the' man who wrote about Mrs.
Haukshec and her kind, wrote nlso
"Tho Recessional." It does not do to
rely upon the Judgment of Sunday
school library committees. She favored
correlation, but not overdoing It, and

DR. GltOFF'S ADDRESS.
Dr. George E. Groff, of Bucknell uni
versity, gave one of the most Interest
ing addresses possible. He knocked
down a few more Idols nnd destroyed
the popular notion that this state was
settled by Penn. When he began by
stating that Pennsylvania had a very
mixed population, nobody was aston
ished, but when he proceeded to assert
that this state had a most heterogen
eous variety of settlers, and that we
had all nationalities from the begin
ning, his .audience sat up and listened
more attentively. He said that the
Dutch were here from ancient days, so
long Indeed, that no record can be
found of the date. In 1594 thoy had
families living on the Delaware. Then
there were also Germans, French,
Spanish, Portuguese, Poles, Finns, Ital
ians, Welsh, English, Irish and Scotch.
The Dutch came rlrst. There was a
Dutch settlement above Stroudsburg
twenty years after tho English settled
in Philadelphia, which was so old that
nobody knew when or where it began.
It disappeared, and Dr. Groff calls it
"The Lost Colony of the Delaware."
The Peter Corseltus Plockhoy colony
was the first on the continent to ex
plicitly state that there should be 110
slavery within Its bounds. "Neither
lord nor slave," said its constitution.
It had a most interesting history,
thirty years of which Is obliterated.
The Aeadlans, to the number of 600,
were put on shore at Philadelphia and
forsaken by the English. From these
sprang many families which still have
French blood. The Quakers were here
before William Penn, and the Germans,
whom Franklin called ignorant, were
not Ignorant, but had books and educa
tion. In closing, Dr. Groff said that
Porto Rico has much the same hetero
geneous population as Pennsylvania

TREATED HIM RUDELY.
Park Policeman Callahan Roughly
Handled by Reckless Driver.
Park Policeman William Callahan
had troubles of his own yesterday In
arresting a very surly and slightly In
toxicated young man, who was driving
through the park at a breakneck rate
of speed. Callahan was almost ridden
down, and was then thrown out of the
buggy, but finally managed to land his
man at the central police station.
About 6.30 o'clock the youth In ques
tion drove through the grounds, and
heeded not Callahan's mild order to
slacken up. A few minutes later he re
turned, still driving furiously. "Whoa,
there!" yelled the policeman, and
"Fudge," responded the driver coldly.
"Look out or I'll run you down," he
then remarked sweetly, but finally
drew rein and heard Callahan inform
him that he wus under arrest. "I am,
am I?" he remurked, "Well, go ahead,
my merry bucko, and arrest me." Cal
lahan climbed Into the buggy, and un
Instant later was thrown out of it. His
Ire wns somewhat aroused by this time,
nnd he made an angry grab at the bel
ligerent and pulled him from the buggy.
"Now, since you won't ride, you can
walk," said he, and after a little forc
ible persuasion had been used, his cap
tive meekly accompanied him to the
central station. His rig was later
brought down by Purk Policeman Mc
Manamun. Tho horse had been over
worked and abused, and was In a
rather pltluble state. Tho driver re
mained surly at tho station nnd refused
to give his name, but declared that the
horse was beyond his control, He Is

LUZERNE TEAM WON3
Issue Was in Doubt Until the Last
Scranton Batter Was Retired.
Brennan's Star Play.
Scrnnton's semi-professional team
met defeat yesterday afternoon before
a big Labor day crowd, at the hands of
the fast Luzerne team. The game was
gingery and exciting, and the Issue In
doubt until the last Scranton batter
was retired In the ninth Inning.
Grlflln and Slmmerman opposed each
other In the box. Each gave the same
number of hits. Grlflln struck out five
of the visitors, while the Luzernite
was unable to cause any of the locals
to fan. He was steady as a clock, how
ever, and did not give a single base on
balls. Grlflln only gave one, but this
resulted In a run.
The features of the game were the
swift fielding of Pughe, Brennan and
Cross, of the visitors, and the splendid
batting of Madenspacher, of the locals.
The' latter secured a double and three
singles, in five times up. The scoring
began early In the game. In the first
Inning Luzerne gathered four unearned
runs. Fahy, the first man up, made
his base on Owens' error, after suc
cessive chnnces had been given both
Owens and Wlrth to retire him on easy
The following two batters were dis
posed of, and the side would have been
retired, had it not been for the mis
plays on Fahy. As It was, safe drives
were made by Dougherty, Brennan,
Robbins and Cross, and four runs re
sulted, Madenspacher opened for Scran
ton by beating out an infield hit, and
stealing second. Touhlll took first
when Pughe Juggled his drive, and
both men scored on Ferris' out, and
Tho locals took a brace more of runs
in the third. Griffin's single. Maden-
spacher's double, and an error by Rob
bins being productive of the tielng
tallies. Pughe singled in the fifth for
Wllkes-Barre and by excellent base
running stole second nnd third and
scored on an infield out. In the same
inning, singles by Grlflln, Maden
spacher and Frantz, and TouhlU's fly
to Cross, gave Scranton two more runs.
In the seventh, Luzerne won the
game. Dougherty's single, Wirth's
passed ball, and singles by Robbins
and Cross brought in two more tallies.
Scranton made a desperate attempt to
win in the ninth. Fahy's error gave
Wlrth his buse. Griffin tried hard to
advance him, but his long fly fell in the
glove of Cross.
Madenspacher came to the rescue
with a safe smash for one base, but all
Frantz could do was to give Fahy an
easy fly. It was up to Touhlll to win
the game. The University of Michigan
player hadn't batted safely all day,
and fans concluded that he was just
about due for a hit. He caught one of
Simmerman's slow ones on the end of
his bat, and the ball sailed far into left
field. Cross was after It like a deer,
however, and wound up the game by a
Hoth Owens and Frantz, of the home
team, batted in the hardest kind of
luck. In the sixth Inning, Pughe re
tired Owens by making a magnificent
jumping catch of his hot liner, and in
the seventh Brennan brought the spec
tators to their feet by a remarkable
catch of Frantz's long drive to right.
The third baseman had banged a
long, hard fly over the Luzerne man's
head, and It looked like a sure three
bagger. "Make a home run out of It,
Hein,le," nn enthusiastic rooter yelled,
and just then the lanky Mr. Brennan,
who had beeen doing a backward run
which would put to shame a Jesse
Burkett or Elmer Flick, sprang Into the
nir, grabbed the ball nonchalantly with
one hand, and trotted Into the diamond
as complacently as though such plays
were everyday occurrences with him.

DIED OP BURNS
CLOTHING CAUGHT FIRE FROM
Miss Mary Mawn, of Irving Avenue,
Accidentally Set Fire to Her Dress,
and Before the Flames Could Be
Extinguished Received Terrible
Burns Which Proved Fatal Can
dle Dropped to the Floor and the
Flame Ignited the Bottom of Her'
Skirt Died at 11.30.
Mies Maggie Mawn, tho lS-year-old
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Pntrlck
Mawn, of 212 Irving avenue, met a ter
rible death yesterday, as a result of her
dress being set ablaze by the llame
of a candle.
The accident which proved so fatal
In Its results, occurred about 5 o'clock
yesterday afternoon. Miss Mawn had
lit a small cnndle In order to brighten
up the Interior of a clothes closet. As
she moved towards the door of the
room, the candle suddenly slipped from
her hand and fell to the floor. She
stooped hurriedly to pick It up and her
skirt caught the blaze.
She wore a dress of flimsy, Inflam
mable material, which in nn Instant
was a sheet of llame. The unfortu
nate girl shrieked for aid, n;id her cries
brought members of the family to her
assistance. They found her enveloped
In fire, and Immediately bent their
energies on saving her.
She wus enveloped !i a blanket, nnd
thrown on a couch, where desperate
tfforts were made to extinguish the
flames., This was quickly done, but It
was readily seen that the burns Miss
Mawn had sustained were of a fright
ful nature. The clothes had been
burned from her body, and the flesh of
her face and body singed and scorched
Into a clnder-Iike mass, which almost
An alarm of fire had been sounded,
but the South Scranton companies, on
their arrival, found that the blaze had
been nlready extinguished. Drs. John
P. O'Mnlley and Henry HalDert were
summoned to attend to the young wo
man and recommend her removal to
the Lackawanna hospital.
Dr. Sallady, the resident house sur
eon, responded with tho ambulance,
nnd removed Miss Mawn to the hos
pital. Soothing remedies were admin
istered to soften the pain, but from
the first little hope was entertained of
saving her life. She died at 11.30
BUTTONS AWED HIM NOT.
Five-Year-Old Was Perfectly at
Home at Police Headquarters.
A large number of small boys were
lost In the crowd which watched the
parade yesterday, and were taken to
the central police station, where they
were held until anxious parents called
for them. One little urchin proved the
least daunted by blue coats and brass
buttons of any of tho countless young
sters Vho have found their way into
the station at divers times.
He must have been all of five years
old, and claimed to cpme from West
Scranton. He was a barefoot boy, but
there was none of the sweet, cleanly
air of childish simplicity about him,
which would Induce anyone to quote
Whlttier and remark, "Blessings on
thee, little man, barefoot boy with
cheek of tan."
In fact, If truth must be told, he was
an exceptionally dirty little boy, whose
clothes were full of rents and whoso
features were covered with grime. He
sat In the corridor with a group of
patrolmen for awhile, calmly wiggling
ten dirty little toes. He then suddenly
produced a large and ragged looking
cigar butt, and proceeded to light and
"A precocious boy, indeed," remarked
one of the patrolmen, and just then the
remarkable child arose, stretched him
self In a blase manner, and remarked
he thought he'd run In and see the
chief. He entered the sergeant's office
and climbing under the chain barrier,
took a seat and grinned amiably at
Superintendent Day. The latter looked
at the bad looking cigar and the small
boy, and remarked gently: "Better
throw that away, son. It won't agree
"Aw g'wan," remarked tho angel
child, with a merry ha! ha!
"You'd better do It, and not be Im
pertinent," said Day, making a strong
effort to be real stern and judicial.
"You know we've got cells in here for
bad little boys."
"Say," said the small youth confi
dentially, "you make me tired. I'm
goin' to quit you." With which he
joined the patrolmen In the corridor,
with whom he remained until his
