riving nnd It was 1.30 before President
O'Hara rapped the convention to or
der. llev. E. J. Melley offered prayer
and new F. McGuckln, of St. Francis
church, formnlly welcomed the dele
gates to Nnntlcoko. He spoke in n
congratulatory strain to the delegates
advising them of their duty as repre
sentatives of tho total abstinence move
ment. Ho urged them to remain firm
ns tetotalers and ever be faithful to
the total abstinence, pledge. He told
of the work done In the Interest of no
license In Montrose by himself and oth
ers nnd how the Sabbath breaking In
cident to the drinking of liquor there
was wljied out. He said there was but
two saloonkeepers In Nantlcoke mem
bers of St. Francis church nnd caused
a ripple of merriment to pass over tho
gathering by telling how one comes to
devotion regularly nnd observes tho
law with regard to the selling of liquor
rapidly. He then mentioned the names
of tho pioneers in the Father Mathew
movement In Nantlcoke, relating mnny
of the amusing Instances which oc
curred during the formation and
growth of the society. In conclusion
ho urged the delegates to be aggres
sive In prohibiting the sale of liquor on
EXPULSION OF ST. JOHN'S.
The reading of the report of the com
mittee on credentials by D. A. Macklu,
of 'Wilkes-Bnrre, which omitted the
name of tho St. John's society, of the
South Side, precipitated the first de
bate of the convention. Delegate M. J.
O'Toole, of Scranton, stated that ho did
not believe the committee on creden
tials had any option but. to report the
credentials offered them when there
was no contest. Mr. Mackin explained'
that the objection of ltev. J. A.
O'Reilly, of Scranton, tho spiritual di
rector of the society, was filed with
them, as well as the adverse report of
the board of government ,and that they
felt justified under tho circumstances
to bring in such a report.
Mr. McGrath, of the St. John's socl
ty, asked why the society was denied
representation, but President O'Hara
said that the society was not entitled
to representation and went on to ex
plain that the board of government
made every reasonable effort to settle
matters. Mr. Judge wanted it referred
to a committee of five to settle It.
Delegate Kelly, of St. John's Cadets,
r.ald th'at the society was not given a
fair show and that while ' some said
they were given a year to settle it, that
it was not true. He further stated that
when tho former president of tho union,
John Devltie, was told by Father
O'ltellly to suspend the St. John's,
that he did not because he wanted
their four votes to elect him president.
Delegate Livelle, of the St. Patrick'n
society, said that ho believed the mem
bers would apologize If given a chance
but they had had no time to do It. Dele
gate McLean said the board of govern
ment should withdraw Its objections
and pee if tho matter could not bo fixed
up tomorrow. A call was made for
the question nnd tho report of tho com
mittee was adopted by almost a unan
Tho St. John's society representatives
and the representatives of the Cadets
then withdrew from tho hall.
