during the services they kept up a con

solemn moments one of the bluls

Bishop Harvey began by congraui
latlng the membeis of the i-ongi-egiitlon
and the pastor for their Christian zeal
in erecting such u magnificent temple
to the glory and honor of Rod.
"There are many dioceses," said he
"which nrp richer than this diocese of
Scranton, but there are few which can
boast or such beautitul and Imposing
churches as it can. I loiiieniiim- i,..o

which stood near this spot ami which
was at that time the only place or

iiounsmiig tiee lu which even tho birds
or tho air find shelter."
Tho Sacilflces Made.
The bishop refeired to the huerlllces
which must have been made In order to
build the church, and of the fidelity and
devotion to the Christian faith which
prompted the making or these sacri
fices. "This whole building," said he "Is
redolent with the sweet perfume of
fcelf-sacrlllce, that beautiful offspring of
taith and love."
Bishop Ciarvey then went on to ex
plain nt some length the fundamental
doctrine of the Roman Catholic ehiiKli

the power to teach the truth to the
apostles, he said, and only their right

of the Catholic church, have that power
"Catholics believe," said lie, "that

Tho fundamental belief of the
separatists private Judgment, the right
of every man to find his own religion In
the Bible has been the fruitful source 1
or divisions and sects differing widely
on questions of faith."
The bishop declared that It Is no
wonder that since the leformatlon the
conversion of all the nations of the
earth has lagged. When Catholicism
held undisputed sway, he said, the na
tions or the earth came one by one to
know Chi 1st and to bend at His feel.
In the three hundred yeais that have
elapsed since the Reformation, millions
of Bibles have been distributed among
the heathen, ho said, but how little real
good has been accomplished as coin
pared with that accomplished before.
Number of Interpretations.
"Christ said at the Last Supper," said
he. " 'This Is my body and this is my
blood.' No Icfs than sixty separate and
distinct interpretations of this lenmrk
exist outside the Catholic church, while
within her Told there Is only one. What

permitted to be his own interpreter.
Then the criminal could find a' hundred

The bishop likened the Catholic church
to tlie courts, inasmuch as it speaks
witli authority and interprets God's
laws for Ills people.
"But a strange thing has come to pass
in the Piotestant church," said he.
"The average Protestant bases his
hopes upon the Inspiration of the Scrip-tine.-,
which he considers as tin- idol of
Ills heart, but these Scrlptiues have
lately been assailed In the house of
its friends. The higher critics have
a-saulted them until it seemed as if
they were about to topple over, and It
remained lor the Catholic- chinch to
come to the rescue and to ptoclaim to
.ill the world its belief In the divine
inspiration ol' the entire Bible. The
Catholic church existed with the full
est authority before the New Testaniflit
was written. Instead of being the en
emy of the Scriptures, as has been
charged, It gathered together the scat
tered pages, sirted out the- wheat from
the chaff and has always proclaimed
its belief in their divine inspiration.
The bishop closed with n somewhat
exhaustive discussion of the doctrine of
papal Infallibility, which has prevented
contradictions during the last nineteen
hundred years and which has prevented
a conformance on the part of the church
to the varying moods and speculations
of tho human mind.

Rt. Rev. Rlshop Hoban made a few
remarks, following Bishop Garvey. He

A very large amount of paving Is In

majority of.the properly owners on Ca
pou.se avenue between Ash and New
York streets to a petition asking for 11
vitrified brick pavement, and It is ex
pected tbut an ordinance providing for
the construction of this strip of pave

Thirteenth ward, Is very anxious to
have Green Rldgc street paved from
North Main avenue to the Dunmoro

along this street. A petition Is soon to
Certain property owners along Pitts
ton avenue are desirous of having that
thoroughfare paved for its entire length
and a petition may be circulated dur
ing the next few months. The only
pave in Soutli Scranton at the present
time Is that along Cedar avenue.
An ordinance Is ut present pending In
councils piovidlng for the paving of
Linden street, between Monroe avenue
Und Arthur avenue. The signatures of
a majority of tho property owners
could not be secuied to a petition, and
It Is proposed to have the ordlnanoe
passed by a three-fourths vote as pro
vided by law in such case.
The ordinance provides that the ad
vertisements shall call for bids for as
phalt, brick and bituminous macadam
pave. The purpose of this is to secure
a comparative idea of the cost of the
bituminous macadam pave and the
The Delaware, Lackawanna and
Western and tho Lackawannu and
Wyoming Valley Railroad companies
have practically agreed to pave Mattes
stieet between the Cedar avenue bridge
and Lackawanna avenue. It was at
llrst thought that an .arrangement
could be perfected for-straightening out,
the street, but the Lackawanna com
pany decided that it could not afford
to give up the land which it would
require to do this. The stieet is to be
paved with brick, and the co.-t to each
company will be about $3,L00. The
Scranton Railway company will pay
about one-half this amount.

Director of Public Woiks Roche, who
is at present engaged In preparing his
estimates for the coming fiscal year, hi
accordance with tho request or City
Controller Costello, has decided to ask
councils for the sum of $50,000 to per
manently Improve a large number of

Last year Director Roche inserted an
Item of $3S,000 In his estimate for per
manently improving a number of
streets by macadamizing them, but It
was struck out nt a conference of the
recorder and his cabinet, and was not
considered at all by councils.
Director Roche's idea is to macadam
ize the unpaved streets in nil parts of
the city which are used as general ar
teries of travel and on which there is
much traflic. He seems convinced that
if macadam is once given a fair trial it
will prove to the satisfaction or every

The mutter of putting up a labor can
didate for recoider has been quietly
discussed among the prominent labor
leaders of the city for some weeks past,
out tho Tact was not generally known,
and yesterday's decision of the central
body was received with no little sur

It was decided to appoint a special
committee with power to call a conven

the purpose of nominating a candidate.

It was decided to have each union In
the city, whether afflllated with the
Central Labor union or not, elect two
delegates to this convention. As the
constitutions of some of tho national
organizations distinctly forbid any mix

the committee will suggest to such
unions that they form a temporary
organization as a branch of the Eco

The motion to have this convention
called was opposed by only one lone
delegate, whose words of disapproval
had not the slightest effect on the other
delegates. The committee which has
been appointed to call the convention is
composed of the following members:
Peter F. Holton, P. J. Slic-a, Daniel
Laverty, J. F. Hammes, Hugh Frayne,
George Gothler, E. C. Patterson. B. U.
