ber dying within the past year.

Scrantoninn Speaks
Opening ceremonies by the lodge
officers were followed by Miss Ken
nedy's playing of "Entritt," frofn
the "Suite in Walde." Lodge officers
participated in solemn memorial ex
ercises in memory of the deceased
members of the order. Following
these exercises. Miss Kanders sang
"Morning Hymn."
In an eloquent memorial oration,
Frank Loughran, member of Scran
ton Lodge No. 123, outlined the prin
ciples and Jhe service of the order.
He said:
"The B. P. O. E., since its incep
tion, has set aside a period of com
memoration for their dead. Some
one ljas called the period in which
we live the golden age of fraternity.
Here in the United States there are
more than 300 fraternal organiza
tions. It is said one out of every
four of the adult population is a
fraternal member of some such fra
ternal body. This desire in men to
associate themselves together is not
a development of recent days, or
years, or centuries, but dates back
to* the very dawn of antiquity.
"The primary, object was protec
tion. Early in human history man's
immunity to man began to assert
Itse'f. In union men found first a
feeling of safety that later developed
into strength and power. The avowed
purpose of the B. P. O. E. is in ad
ministering to those who are weak
ened in body and distressed in mind:
to aid by charity those who are
I worthy and whom the hand of fate
| has pressed back to the wall to de
velop in men love of country; to
I quielten ttie patriotic pulse of the
nation and to cultivate tho social side
of life. These aims and purposes are
substantially set forth in what the
order terms its constitution.
"What, then, is Elkdom?" the
speaker asked. In answer he stated:
; "The Benevolent and Protective Or
. der of Elks rests its arch upon the
eternal principles that man never
|dies. And this principle divides itself
into dual channels. First, in the
sublime belief that an Omnipotent
i rules the universe and that it is the
destiny of man to win happiness in
the realms of never-ending day.
"Second, in namely, that man
never dies in the hearts of those who
love him. And in the last hour of
each passing day, at the chimes' toll
of eleven, we turn from life's pur
suits and life's pleasures to drink the
silent toast to our departed brothers.
So in the last month of each year,
we assemb'e in formal session be
neath the draped antlers and beside
the flag-covered altar now eclipsed
in roll of black, to attest that death
is not tho end."
Closing Ceremonies
At tho close of the address. Miss
Kennedv p'ayed with grace and skill
Handel's beautiful "T.argo." She
was followed by Miss Kanders. who
sang "These Are Tliey Which Came,"
from Gaul's "Holy City." Miss Kan
ders has a gloriously beautiful voice
—pure, sweet and clear in all regis
ters. Tho many musiclovers present
were highly pleased with her sing
I Closing ceremonies, in which lodge
I officers participated, were followed
by the singing of "Auld Lang Syne."
Mr. Opperman played the closing
number, "Coronation March."
The committee in charge of yester
dav's memorial services included the
following: Abner W. ITartman, es
teemed leading knight, as chairman;
James J. Carroll, representative:
Clarence H. Sig'er, treasurer, and

"the work the em
; teteßßßte -* ploye was engaged
in at the very time of his accident,
without regard to any artificial ref
> erence to subsequent employment"
' according to an opinion handed down
[ today by Chairman Harry A. Mackey
i of the State Compensation Board, ln
i dismissing objections of the Phila
, delphia and Reading to the award of
compensation for Ruth L, Frye, of
I Marysvilie, whose husband Preston
i Martin Frye, was killed in Ruther
; ford yards in August. The man's
I duties were to "drop" cars in a clas
sification, yard and he had reported
for work. There were no cars to hg
"dropped" and while waiting orders.
Frye was killed. The company
1 raised the claim that the man was I
engaged in furthering inter-state I
commerce work. The referreo held
1 he was not.
Mr. Mackey discusses the trend of
decisions and says that while laws
are liberal and constructions equally
so "now It is quite natural and
proper that the same object should
restrict the terms of (compensation)
acts to as narrow a compass as pos
sible in order to widen the oppor
tunities of workmen's compensation
laws and to include within its terms
a large class of beneficiaries who
otherwise would be cut off with no
compensation for injuries suffered
in tho course of employment if. ad-
Judged an inter-state activity with
out the negligencA of the employer."
In conclusion Mr. Mackey says':
"Inter-state commerce is a question
of fact and not intention, and, until
a man actually performs some work
we can not classify him merely upon
the probility that had he not met
with an accident there would have
been no order intervening between
his intention and the actual under
taking. "Decisions referred to are
held by Mr. Mackey to "indicate that
the real test is the work the em
ploye was engaged in." He quotps
from a court decision that "He who
waits, also serves."
Deer Season. Pennsylvania's
deer season opened today with hun
dreds of men in the Woods, accord
ing to reports of the State Game
Commission. Many of these men are
camping on sites for which permits
were grapted by the State Forestry
Reservation Commission for hunting

that over a quarter of a million
Pennsylvanians are in the army the
number of hunters licensed this year
is about the same as previous years
and reports indicate that the deer
hunters are dut in force. Many are
bound for the South Mountain region
and the Juniata valley have passed
through here the last few days.

tomobile license tags were, sent early
today frofh the new quarters of the

Ida Yocum Received
Attention From Nurses
A statement was issued to-day by
Miss Mary W. Miller, of the Visiting
Nurse Association, in which denials
are made concerning the treatment of
Ids Yocum, 2249 Jefferson street,
whose case was cited in the local
papers recently. Th* statement is
signed by Mary W. Miller, and states
that the visiting nurse bathed her,
changed her clothing and gave her
other attention from November, 1917,
to June, 1918, a period of eight
months. Later she was admitted to
the Harrisburg Hospital for special
treatment, and was there for forty
three days. The superintendent then
adds: "She was then under our care
until she was able to take care of
herself. She is now able to bathe
herself and clean her room, but she
needs institutional care. The directors
of the poor refused an application to
admit her to the County Home last
June" ' • I
