burg. The Peninsular Emery Wheel Co.,
of Detroit, Michigan, for years owned
and managed by James McConville, has
been sold to Byron E. Hamlin, president

who was a former resident of Sterling

Tho muck discussed dearth of can
didates for the ministry seems not to be
felt in tho Central Pennsylvania Con
ference of the M. E, church. Last Fri
tday, Bishop Hamilton, in his address to
the newly ordained ministers said : "If
you young men are not satisfied with the
polity of our church, you have the priv-;
llego to go to some other denomination
where there is plenty of room, for -wo
have difficulty to find places for the men,
being overcrowded with ministers and
students In our theological seminaries.,"
In speaking of the prevalent evils of the
day, tho Bishop sounded a marked warn
ing against the increased worldliness of
tho times. Said he : "Bridge whist is
wrecking the homes of our country. Ex
travagance and hypocrisy play promi
nent parte in this country. As long as
we maintain our hypocrisy tho world
will not advance"
"The Citizen" is offering smoll
prizes to the pupils of the Honesdale
schools for essays on the grading and
arrangement of the school property
grounds. Some papers havo been
handed in, but not as many as it was
thought probable would have been sub
'mitlecf. However, as the competition
doesnotcloseuntil Thursday, April 15th,
there is still ample time for the boys
and girls to put their ideas and prefer
ences in writing, with theassurance that
all will have fair consideration and be
judged solely on their merits. An article
in anothercolumn gives full information
as to the requirements to be observed
in submitting manuscripts.
In his report to the M. E. confer
ence at Plymouth, Uev. Austin Griffin,
Superintendent of the Oneonta district,
mentioned the return to the Moravian
ministry of Kev. Robert E. Clewell, who
a year ago at Carbondale was received
into the Wyoming conference and as
signed to the church at Westford, N. Y,
Mr. Clewell for a couple years previously
had been a reporter for the Scranton
Tribune, Honesdalc Citizen, and other
papers,' coming to newspaper work from
ministerial duticsln the Moravian church.
Ho did not go to thechargu to which lie
was assigned, the Moravian church again
calling him, iimlhu returned to a pastor
ate therein. In panning the Westford
charge, the defection of Mr. Clewell was
again noted by Dr. Griflln, and Bishop
Moore, in commenting thereon, said :
"1 thank the Lord these boys are glad
to return to their mother." Which was
a very pretty and generous remark.
