Lnrgc Audience nt tho Lyceum
Lnst Night with ft Scholarly Re
sume of tho Essential. Things in
Real Success Only the Few Ai-o
Truly Successful, He Said.
lit, Ifuv. Bishop John Lancaster
Spalding, of I'eorht, III., one of the
most Intellectual unci forceful person
alities In the Itomnn Catholic church
of America, delivered a lecture on
"Success" lnst night In thn Lyceum
theater, nnd held the very closest at
tention of a large und thoroughly rep
resentative nudlencc by the surpassing
clearness of his rensonlng nnd tho
choice diction In which he clothed his
Bishop Spalding's follow members of
the board of arbitration, now engaged
In Investigating the causes leading up
to the recent coal strike, attended the
lecture In a body nnd occupied tho two
lower boxes on the left hand side ot
the stage. Judge George Gray, General
Wilson and Recorder Can oil D. Wright
occupied Hie box nearest tho stage,
while Commissioners Parker and Clark
sat In the box behind. Thomas If.
AVatklns was also present In the the
ater. John Mitchell, president of the
United Mine Workers, and a party ot
friends sat In tho front upper box on
the left hand side of the stage.
Prior to and Immediately following
Bishop Spalding's lecture tho Catholic
Choral society, under the leadership ot
Prof. John T. AVatklns, rendered selec
tions In 11 remurkably eillelent man
ner which elicited much applause. Tho
first number sung was "Daybreak."
and the second the beautiful "Inflam
mattis Est," from Rossini's "Stabat
Mater." The accompaniments were
played by Bauer's orchestra.
The Speaker Introduced.
Bishop Spalding was briefly Intro
duced by Rt. Hev. Bishop M. J. Hoban,
who referred to the work being accom
plished at the House or the Good Shep
herd, for the benefit of which the lec
ture was given. There arc at present
thirty-three women at the home who
have consecrated their lives to penance,
as did that other sinful but repentant
woman, Mary Magdalen, nnd seventy
five others who are learning how to
lend a better life. There are also thirty-four
children, the offspring of un
fortunate parents, who are being
trained up in the way of righteous liv
ing, ho said. Ho Introduced Bishop
Spalding as "a man who Is a success
himself; a success as an essayist: a
success ns a bishop; a success as a
poet; a success as an American."
No report of Bishop Spalding's lec
ture can convey to the render even tho
rainiest idea of tho whole-souled ear
nestness or the man nor can what he
said, when set down, carry with it the
conviction that it carried when em
phasized by tho varying modulations
of his mellow voice or illuminated by
the changing lights and shadows that
passed across his mobile and expres
JIc treated bis subject entirely from
the viewpoint of the cultured scholar
and uf the religious teacher. Success
implies to him the cultivation of the
intelligence and the quickening of the
moral sense. This kind of success, he
held. Is attainable by every man and
woman, but he voiced the pessimism
of the day as regards the future as far
as success for Ihc muny along tho lines
of mental improvement is concerned.
A Special Application.
He began by asserting that success
has n special application to America,
because In this country It fs easier for
the individual man to succeed than
elsewhere on the earth. As the thought
of success implies failure, and as tho
predominant eharacler or life In this
age Is commercial, the bishop discussed
llrst at sonic length the causes of busi
ness failure. These ho divided Into
two great classes, those duo to tho per
son who fail, and those due to outside
Influences. Tho very largo proportion
of business failures are due to tho per
sons who fail and are therefore caused
by moral faults, he said.
All persons, he said, are striving af
ter the attainment ot somo Ideal wheth
er consciously or unconsciously. All
men may be divided in this connection
Into two grout classes, those who are
Influenced by the Ideal of pleasure and
thoso who are Influenced by the Ideal
of power and virtue. The many are
striving after pleasure either directly
or indirectly, the few after power and
virtue. The bishop's undisguised dis
like of wealth, display nnd ostentntlou
merely as such, found vent several
times, ns when ho said:
"Life Itseir is the only wealth, the
only prosperity, the only success, Of
little lmportunce, Indeed, nro rich man
sions and line equipages and nil tho
pomp and barbarous ostentation of
riches. Tell me not ubout a mini's clr
eumstiinces, Tell mo about himself.
Tell mc what there Is most God-like In
him that will render him altogether
happy In poverty, In exile, or In prison.
Tell mo If there is In him that dtvlim
something which now and then breaks
out in saints and men of genius,"
An Important Element.
One very essential and very Import
ant clement in real success, ho said, Is
tho development of tho body, the trans
forming of It Into u perfect organism
capablo of enduring toll nnd continuous
Success on tho physical side Is com
mon enough, he said, but intellectual
success Is rare. As u crlllcul scholar,
the bishop cannot be said to be ttlto
gether pleased nt the avidity with
which tho great American pttblhi Is Im
proving Its mind, Tho great multitude
can read, he said, but It rends nothing
but papers, magazines nnd novels, nnd
neglects the books which count, ' Tho
ordinary American s lacking In the
best cultured mind because the prac
tical life ho lives lias driven all
thoughts, except ,mateilal success, out
uf his mliid,
He then dwelt ut length ttpun Aris
totle's ideal of work for the sake of
leisure; of work for tho sake of having
time for self-Improvement or contem
plation. The attainment of this hind of
success, the bishop said, means the upbuilding-
of one's own being und causes
one to look In a different mood at os
tentation and show, "Work." said he,
")s the price set on all excellence,"
Then the religious side of the man
began to reveal Itself, us he drew near
the end of his remarks.
"We should not' strive simply that we
inuy live in fut homes, and that we
may bo well fed, Wd should rather
strive to nltnln to that moral climate
where bouIb thrive, nnd minds grow,
and consciences nro Illumined,"
A. Utopian Dream.
The outlook, ho admitted, Is not a
very glorious one. The' ntlnlnmcnt ot
real success by tho many Is npparontly
a Utopian dream. All men are eciunl
In natural endowments, he sold, nnd
Inequality begins only In the will. Men
have no desire to attain rent success
nnd so they become moral failures.
"As we look nt the nice und this
little nnl-henp which It Inhabits," said
ho In conclusion, "we are forced to the
conclusion thnt 11 were all failure ull
emptiness, were It not for the love n
God shining upon us through religious
faith. w'o are but a little breed
of microbes here below, lighting and
wrestling and doing little things In a
little space called history. Without
that love of God, without that faith J'
speak of, all would be a mockery, nnd
who would enre whether ho succeeded
or failed? It would be all the same.
Therefore, I hove no hesitancy In say
ing that In the end religion Is the deep
est thought In this question of success;
It is the mightiest impulse for the
building of man's body nnd soul."
And so ended one of the few really
Intellectual lectures given In this city,
nnd a lecturer who had not told a single
funny story, nor permitted himself to
use any of tho tricks of the ordinary
platform speaker, left the stage In nn
outburst of tumultuous applause.
ANOTHER SILK MILL
to cone to this city
Local Capitalists Have Formed a
Company Which Will Operate
Plant in Green Ridge.
A company has been organized by
local capitalists for the purpose of
weaving silks and within a month or
two the Industry will be permanently

been engaged in the business of silk
manufacture In this country for the
last fifty years and was the man who
has been largely Instrumental in or
ganizing the new company.
The company has purchased the large
three story brick building nt Monsey
avenue and Larch street, which was

to nccommoelate about 200 looms.
The company proposes to manufac

will employ at the outset not less than
JoO hands. A very large percentage of
theso will be women, though there will
bo a considerable number of men also
employed. Weaving only will be done
and the prevailing rate of wages paid
for this class of work is much higher
than tho rale paid in throwing mills,
of which there are several In this city
An application for a charter has al
ready been made nnd it Is expected
that one will be granted in the near fu

Explains Her Disappearance from
Home by Saying Thnt Italians
The poeple ot Mayfield were thrown
into a state of excitement Saturday
night through the sudden disappear
ance of a fourteen-year-old girl, Ger
trude Shoah, who resides with her pa
rents just north ot the Glenwood
The girl was just opposite her homo
on a vacant lot adjoining Dr. Jackson's
residence, picking clover for her rab
,blts, at a quarter to 5 o'clock, and a
lfew minutes Inter disappeared. As the
evening wore on and the girl failed to
return, her parents got alarmed and
searching parties were organized and
tho woods were searched all night
without any trace of the missing girl.
She was Anally discovered by Dr.
Jackson about 0 o'clock yesterday
morning at the liome of Mrs. Carey,
above tho toll gate on tho Scott road.
The girl tolls a very strange story ns
to her disappearance, and says while
picking the clover two men, presumably
Italians, who were standing on the On
tario and Western railroad, called her
and as she stepped upon the track they
tried to get hold of her. She ran along
the track with the men In pursuit and
when nearly exhausted found herself
beyond Chapman lake, four miles away
from hot- home. She went to the farm
house of Mrs. Mcrrltt, who upon hear
ing the girl's tale allowed her to re
main there during the night. Rarly
yesterday morning she ndvlsed tho girl
to return to her home, and as a milk
wagon, driven by Kdgar Burton, usual
ly passes on Its way to Jermyn at 0
o'clock In the morning, she gave tho
girl her breakfast and when tho wagon
nppenred asked the driver to take her
to Jermyn, which he willingly did and
sho got off at Rushbronk street. She
says ft moment or two later she wns
again accosted by the same two men
and she once more fled In tho direction
of Scott, finally reaching the homo of
Mr, nnd Mrs. Carey, above the toll gate,
where she was later found by Dr. Jack
son, The girl's story Is a 'peculiar ono
nnd many doubt the truthfulness of It,
