An Electrical Device That May Be
Adopted by the Scranton Rail
way Company.
For tho past several days the man
agement of the Scranton Railway com
pany have been experimenting with a
new brake known as a. "Magnetic
Brake." This brake Is placed on a car
which is operated on the Petersburg
line, as this is considered one of the
severest, lines on brakes that is oper
ated by the Street Railway company.
The new brake appears to be better
adapted for conti oiling cars than any
thing ever used for this purpose In the
city. The brake is so constructed that
not only does it retard the wheels un
der the car but also brakes on the rail.
The track brake and wheel brake is
entirely Independent of the hand brake
which stlH lemalns on the car.
The brake is operated by electricity,
nnd when It is applied with full force
the rail brakes are attracted to the
rail at a force of about two thousand
pounds. The power for the application
of the brakes is obtained from the mo
tois of the car Itself, and not from the
trolley wire, and, therefore, the brakes
work as well with the power off of the
line as when it is on. The retarding
power is so distributed between the
rail and the wheels that It makes a
sudden stop possible without skidding
the wheels, and for this leason it Is
particularly valuable in doing away
with Hat wheels. A car going at the
rate of fifteen miles per hour can be
stopped in Its own length. Ice on the
rail or slippery rail do not affect the
application of the brake.
The shoes will seize and cling to the
rail legardless of Its condition, and as
the track shoes are between the wheels
of the motor ttuck they will clear the
rail effectively for the hind, wheels and
enable the whole braking system to be
effective. The sutplus power used in
connection with this brake is sufficient
to furnish heat for the tar. These
brakes are used extensively in Pitts
biug, where there are only two cars
in tho entire city that are not equipped
with magnetic brakes. They nre re
potted to give very good satisfaction In
the "smoky city."
A Tribune man in discussing the mat
ter with Mr. SUllman learned fiom that
gentleman that if the brake worked as
successful in Scranton ns it lins been
teportid to have done In other cities,
large numbeis of the Scranton Rail
way company's cars will bo equipped
with this brake. Mr. SUllman also stat
ed that he expected to have a number
of new cars in service next spring.
Republican City Committee.
Notice is hereby given that a meet

His Subject Will Be "Why I Became
a Baptist" His First Charge Af
ter Entering tho Ministry Was n
Presbyterian Church in Phlladcl.
phla Fob. 1, 1000, Dr. Petors
Stirred tho Religious World by
Entering tho Baptist Church Ij
in Great Demand a3 a Lecturer.
Mndlsou C. Paters, who Is to deliver
n free lecture at the Penn Avenue Hap.
list church Monday evening on "Why
I Bccnmo a Baptist," wirs born In Lc
high county, Pennsylvania, forty-thrca
years ago. His ancestors came front
Germany about ISO years ngo. Dr.
Peters has made his own way In tho
wot Id since ho was S years of age. At
15 ho taught school. After a your 'tit
Muhlenberg college, nt Allentown, Pa.,
ho spent two years at Franklin nnd
Marshall college, at Lancaster, Pa, At
18 lie entered the theological depart
ment of Heidelberg university. Tiffin,
O. He worked his own way through
school, doing odd jobs about the town,
working on the forms during vacation,
preacling and lecturing as opportun
ity afforded.
While other young men swung Indian
clubs, Madison C. Peters sawed wood
for his daily bread. It was this sys
tem of athletics which has given this
preacher such toughness of fibre and
superb power of endurance. He began
his ministry in Indiana. Next wo find
him at Ottawa, HI., opening a. church
which had been closed for several
years. So great were the crowds who
came to listen to him that timing the
warm weather he conducted his ser
vices, in the public park, wheio in a
town of 12,000 people, frequently 4.000
people gatheted to hear him. People
came thirty miles..
Wont to Philadelphia.
His fame soon reached Philadelphia,
and at 21 years of age liOAbecame pas
tor of one of the oldest Presbyterian
churches In Philadelphia, where ho ac
complished results that mystified thote
who watched him: for 11 vo years Dr.
Peters preached to the largest Pro
testant audiences lu Philadelphia.
Thirteen yeais ago when Dr. Peters
was but 29 years of age, he was called
to the Bloonilngdale church, on Broad
way and Sixty-eighth street, New
Inherited wealth enabled n small
congregation to build one of tho hand
somest church edifices in that city of
magnificent churches, costing neatly
half a million dollars. Beginning with
less than 100 the Bloonilngdale chinch
became one of the most Influential In
the metropolis. Dr. Peters' congrega
tion represent eleven diffetent denomi
nations. On Feb. 1, 1900, Dr. Petors stirred the
religious world by resigning his posi
tion of power and influence and laying

avc b spruce stv
down one of tho most successful pas
torates any man over enjoyed, bceum-e
ho had come to the conclusion that the
Biblo taught baptism for believers
only nnd that ho would practice Iniunt
baptism no longer. Dr. 1'eters thus
stepped fiom the heights to begin life
over nguln its a Baptist minister. Ho
did not watt for f-oinothlng to turn up,
but wont over to Brooklyn, took bold
of a church which was almost aban
doned and which on nccouut of Its
great debt Boomed doomed to die.
Took on Now Life.
llaptlstB generally had feared that
tho Summer Avenue church would
liiivo to go under the hummer. With
Dr. Peters' coming to tho church now
life entered It. Tho crowds began to
gather, and In eighteen months n $37,
000 debt was paid, whllo thousands
more wore rnlred for Improvements'.
The membership Increased from 100 to
42fi, whllo the congregation was doublo
the membership. Dr. Peters did not
expect to become tho settled pastor In
this church, as ho preferred to have a
church more centrally located for tho
purpose of reaching the masses. After
a supply of six months, however, he
felt It wise for tho snkn or tho church
to become installed as pastor.
Numerous ovcrtuies wore made to
Dr. Peters to leave tho Brooklyn
church, which Is In n purolyrcslden
tlal section of Brooklyn, but nothing
could Induce him to leave this church
until the call came to Baltimore. Dr.
Peters felt that because of the stra
tegic, location of tho Tabernacle ho
could reach the great ciowds, which
ho wns accustomed to gather In New
York. In this Dr. Peters has not been
disappointed. The spacious Taber
nacle at St. Pnul street and North
avenue, Id already crowded tn over
flowing at both services, and plans aio
now considered for the building of a
new structuro which will hold tho
thousands who are thronging to hear
this earnest preacher.
In Great Demand.
Dr. Peters Is In great demand ns a
lecturer, preacher on special occasions,
while as nn utter-dinner speaker he hits
been considered for years one of the
most popular In Now York. He knows
how to dress his thoughts In attractive
form, his wit is charming, while few
can tell a story better than he.
Dr. Peteis is the author of twenty
two books, among which his "Justice to
the Jew," "The Wit and Wisdom of
the Talmud," and "The Jew as a
Patriot" are the most famous.
