May iinil Col. 1 JL. Hitchcock
Chosen Delegates to the National
Uonrtt ol Trnde.
Last night's regular meeting of tho
board of trade wns not as largely at
tended as usual but those present)
were prlvllesed to participate In sonic
Interesting business. President May
Mr. Kemmerer, chairman ot tho
transportation committee, presented a
report on the discrepancies In freight
rates to and from this city na com
pared with rates and distances of
other cltlJB. The report was as fol
lows: On Oct. 12 I sent out to the varied
manufactures and Jobbers of this city
tho following retiuest: "There Is com
plnlnts that our freight rates to and
from this city are not s favorablo as
many competitive points enjoy, which
works against our manufacturers and
Jobbers, I want as many facts and sug
gestions as I can get (will not use any
names) for a report to board of trado
next Monday evening."
1 havo received several letters and a
few havo called to see me, but have
learned very little, and I therefore con
clude that most of us are satisfied. I
believe that we are as well taken earn
of as many other cities, but not as well
as wo aro entitled to, considering our
railroad competition to this city from
every section of the country. I believe
this board should have a rate from New
York and Philadelphia for Scranton
alone, und not be. grouped with New
York or Philadelphia on freights wo re
ceive from the West, as wo have HO
miles less hauling. We should have a
joint rate of say to per car for transferr--ing
car loads in our city instead of
paying 2 cents ier 100 pounds. We should
have attractive passenger tariff from New
Mtlford, Montrose and Intermediate
points, and bring that trade to Scranton
which now goes north. It belongs to us.
Wo purchase all their products.
Our newspapers should assist in tlds by
placing as many papers In tho towns,
villages and country as possible all
through Susquehanna. Bradford and
Wyoming counties, giving their adver
tising patrons nn opportunity of solicit
ing this trade, which now goes to other
towns. Our merchants and manufac.
Hirers should have tho opportunity of
purchasing ten-ttip tickets to New York
and return for J.V). Much of this could
be accomplished by united action of this
board. Place power behind your trans
portation committee by giving your unit
ed business In their hands, so they can
go out on .a squeezing expedition, offer
ing our entire business to the corpora
tion that will give us best rates and
most satisfactory service.
J. M. Kemmerer,
Chairman Transportation Committee.
The report was referred back to com
mittee with Instructions to obtain fur
ther Information and to recommend a
definite plan for securing better rates.
President May and Colonel F. L.
Hitchcock were elected delegates, and
Luther Keller and Secretary Atherton
alternates to the meeting of the na
tional board of trade in Washington,
Colonel Hitchcock presented a num
ber of resolutions which the board ap
proved for presentation to the national
board. The resolutions provide: That
the board recommend the creation of
a tariff commission: that the Torrey
bankruptcy bill be approved: that the
board ask congress to create the pro
posed department of commerce and
manufactures; that the national bank
ing laws be amended.
Secretary Atherton read a brief state
ment regarding fake advertising
schemes and recommended that the
board adopt a plan for the protection
of its members. Mr. Atherton criticiz
ed certain alleged directory publica
tions from out of town, directories that
were never published; unauthorized
solicitors for labor union programmes
and similar mediums for hoodwinking
liberal advertisers. He recommended
that the board members express their
determination to advertise in only the
newspapers of the city and other trust
worthy publications and the board of
ficers be authorized to Issue certificates
to approved temporary mediums of ad
vertising. The matter was favorably discussed
at length and referred to the publica
A letter was read from W. Irving
Chambers, lieutenant and recorder of
the navy department acknowledging

ST. LUKE'S ANNIVERSARY:
Wns Fittingly Observed Yesterdny by
The organization of St. Luke's Epis
copal church forty-five years ago, was
fittingly commemorated yesterday with
services morning, afternoon and even
ing. At 10 a. m. there was a celebra
tion of the holy communion and in the
afternoon from' 3 to 5 o'clock Rev.
Rogers Israel and wife and Rev. E.
J. Haughton, the curate, and wife, held
an Informal reception at the rectory.
The Needloworkcrs' display in the
afternoon was most successful. In the
evening tho main meeting of the day
took place in the church. After a
brief service In which the full vested
choir participated the annual reports
of the several church guilds were
heard. The following societies re
sponded: Womans', Junior Auxiliary,
St. Hilda, Men's, Elphphaltha, Brother
of St. Andrew and the Girls' Friendly
society. Each report told of prosper
ity and good cheer for the future.
After the meeting the Womans' Guild
elected the following officers: Mrs. B,
H. Throop, president; Mrs. E, S. Mof
fat, secretary and Mrs. George L, Dick
son, treasurer. A final reception last
night at the rectory ended tho ob
servance of St. Luke's day.

Judge Gunslcr Hands Down Opinions in
the Alooslc Crossing and Wlnton
Borough Building Cases.
Two opinions wero handed down yes
terday by Judge aunster. tho one re
straining Mulherln & Judge from erect
ing the Wlnlon borough building; tho
other legalizing the nctlon of the Del
aware and Hudson company in remov
ing tho street car tracks at the fam
ous Mooslc grade crossing.
Tho Wlnton case grows out of the
councllmanlc muddle up there. Mul
herln & Judge wero awaided tho con
tract for building a town hall an a lot
bought for this specific purpose from
the Hllsido Coal nnd Iron company.
As the contractors were proceeding
with the erection of the building an
other resolution was passed ordering
the work to be discontinued. There
was a cessation In the building opera
tions but later upon the order ot one
faction of the board, which feared that
the other wns Intent upon erecting tho
town hall at nnother place In the bor
ough, the contractors resumed work.
An Injunction was sought to prevent
the work being continued and yester
day tho Injunction wns granted. In
his opinion Judge Gunster says that
tho contractors have the right possibly
to sue for brench of contract but not
to go ahead with the building In tho
face of the orders to the contrary from
the council. The defendants are mulct
ed for the costs.
The decision In the Mooslc crossing
case Is possibly the last step In the
long and vigorously fought battle be
tween the Delaware and Hudson rail
road company and the PIttston Trac
tion company. Tho Traction people,
alleged that the supreme court did not
direct them to remove their tracks
from the crossing but simply to e'easo
cperatlng a railway on and over tho
ciosslng. Tho Delaware and Hudson
company filed a petition for a mandate
compelling the removal of the tracks
and then, a few days later, removed
them by force, themselves. Court was
petitioned for permission to withdraw
the petition but the Traction company
objected. Judge Gunster allowes the
withdrawal of the petition.

GROUND WAS BROKEN.
Tor the Ilnptist .Illusion in the -Vay
That was a touching ceremony early
yesterday morning when Isaac L. Post,
the oldest member In point of yeais ot
tho Penn Avenue Baptist church, and
Mrs. Lemuel Amerman, widow of tho
recently deceased superintendent of tho
Nay Aug Mission Sabbath school, as
sisted in breaking ground for the new
mission building on Prescott avenue,
north of Mulberry street. The cere
mony occurred at S o'clock in order, to
permit the attendance of the members
of the mission who are also pupils of
the public schools.
After the doxology was sung, Ilov.
Dr. Joseph K. Dixon, pastor ot the
Penn Avenue Baptist church, offered
prayer. Ttemurks were mado by tho
venerable Mr. Post, who then proceed
ed to displace tho first shovelful of
turf on the mission site.
The onlookers could conjecture the
loving remembrance and tender feel
ings with which Mrs. Amerman re
moved a shovelful of earth In an en
terprise with which her husband had
been for many years such an interested
promoter as superintendent of tho pres
ent mission at 13:'0 Mulberry street.
