WILKES-BARRE JOTS.
Interesting Items from the Land
of Coal.
WiLkes-Barre, Jaly 9.
Last Sunday was Children’s Day
at the A. M. E. Bethel Church, Fell
street. At the close of the Sunday
school at 3 o'clock I’. M., the epa-
cious church was fillea nearly to com
pletion. The altar was beautifully
decorated with flowers. The exer
ciges were interesting. Singing,
“Rally children, let us rally,” by the
school. Miss Susie Woadsin presided
at the organ. lutroductory remarks
were made by Rev. Add. R. Palmer,
pastor of the oliurch. An essay on
the importance and relations to the
future church, was ably produced by
Robert T. Throckmorton. ° Singing,
“Then away, then away.” Appro
priate remarks were made by the Su
perintendent, Samuel J. TPatterson.
An essay, subject, “The meaning and
value of our Wather's church,” was
read by Rev. Robert MeCarty. Sing
ing, Childrer’s Hymn. An address
on the Sunday school Union snd its
claims, was made by Alonzo Church,
of Lincoln University, in an eloquent
and eflicient manner. At the close
of his remarks he was followed by
John Logan, in his usual sound re
marke, which never fail to deeply im
press his audience. The closing
address was made by Rev. A. k.
Palmer, in a very suitable manner.
Then the grand march took place,
throngh the aisles, directed by the
superintendent and teachers. Singing,
“Shout, O Shount, we are Coming,”
which was rendered with the sweetest
strains. Mrs. A. I&. Palmer presided
at the organ. The exercises through
out reflect much credit upon those
having the same in charge. We
hope to meet again on many more
guch pleasant and instructive ccea-
BIONSs.
On tho 26th ultimo a number of
our young men assembled at the resi
dence of Israel Howes, 115 Jackson
street, to organize a cornet band.
Daniel Arnett was clected president;
Thomas 11. Irvingz, vice president;
Samuel Welcome, secretary; John
Lyles, assistant secretary: Lewis
Parks, treasurer. Subsequently 18
names-were enrolled. They adjourned
to meet at said place on the following
Monday evening, at which time they
collected $14.47 towards the purchase
of instruments. Their next meeting
will be held on Monday evening next,
7th inst., at which time they expect
to secure the desired amount. Much
enthusiasm prevails. 'We are proud
of this movement made by our young
men to form a band, and trust their
efforts will prove successful.
A gsurprise party was held at the
residence of David Wil-on, 34 Wright
street, on Monday afternoon last, for
Mrs. Wilson’s mother, Mrs. Rebececa
Carl, the occasion being her 65th
birthday. Quite a number of ladies
assembled and presented her with
presents which were many and useful
as well as ornamental.
The Ladies’ Aid Society (Church
of the Covenant) is in ample working
order, and since its formation, August
14, 1883, it has proven itself to be a
spiritual blessing as well as a financial
success to the church. Its weekly
meetings have been attended with
punctuality and the utmost harmony.
The next meeting will be held at the
residence of O. T. Hazen, 279 South
Main street, on Tuesday evening
next (Bth inst.). Refreshments wili
be on hand. A general attendance
is cordially solicited.
The Sabbath-school of the above
church is progressing finely, the de
portment of which ils commendable.
The average attendance for the month
of June was 55 echolars. A deep
interest is shown on the part of its
management. With John Logan as
its superintendent, with five associate
teachers, viz.: Rev. Horace G. Miller,
Misses Lizzi: Andrew, Ella Andrew,
Jennie Brown and Mrs. Amanda
Thompson, whose abilities to instruct
the “young ideas,” are unquestioned.
The scholars are thoroughly drilled
in the catechism. Among those who
have passed through the shorter
catechism, we mnote Miss IHattie
Logan, Lula Andrew, Charies An
drew and Daniel Andrew. We hope
to make a better report at the close
of this month.
Three notable ladies in the persons
of Mrs. Jacob T. Cumpton, Mrs. Kate
Shaw and Mrs. Priscilla Gordon, of
Harrisburg, have been sojourning
briefly among friends in our city. ‘
Among the places which they were
entertained, we note Mr. and Mrs. |
John Logan’s, Mr. and Mrs. Decatur
Blues, Mr. and Mrs. Edward Gates',
and Mr. and Mrs. Bowman M. ITazen
(at the latter place with John Buargess
and Miss Josie Prime, of this place).
They: departed for their homes on
Saturday last with the best wishes of
their many friends. L
At the Church of the Covenant on
Sunday last Rev. lorace G. Miller,
pastor, preached two able sermons,
which were listened to with marked
attention. Wilkes-Barre will cele
brate the glorious Fourth of July.
As it comes in our line to report
the news, we would have it thor
oughly understood by all that we have
no “ring in our nose,” to be guided
by any sect, creed or denominstion,
neither do we write items for a paper
for the purpose of casting reproach
upon any person. We have the u
most regard for the peoplr of our city,
and as In the past so we shall in the
future endeavor to give the news
“with malice toward none, good will
to all.” Gorp Pen.
MECHANICSBURG
An Interesting Meeting of the A
M. BE. Zion Church.
MECHANICSEURG, Pa., July 2. -
The quarterly meeting of the A.
M. E. Zion Church, was held in the
town hall on June 29th. The morn
ing was pleasant and the sky was
clear. While the church bells were
ringing the little birds were singing.
This reminded me of what David
said: ‘Let everything that has breath
praise the Lord.” At 10 A. M. the
people were crowding their way to
their churches to worship God. At
9:30 A. M. Rev. B. J. Daniel entered
the town hall and opened the quar
terly love feast, by reading and sing
ing the hymn,
“Come ge%hat love the Lord.”
After which the Scripture lessons
were read and the throne of Grace
addressed. The members then united
in breaking bread; in this their souls
were filled with the spirit of God. At
11 A. M. Deacon James Stokes as
cended the pulpit, and selected for
his text John, 15:5, *I am the vine;
ye are the branches.” Theme—The
believers union with Christ. The
young man mastered the subject well.
At 2 P, M. the Sabbath-school con
vened. At 3 1. M. Rev.'B. J. Daniel
addressed the school, and selected the
Book of Numbers, 10:29, and preached
to the congregation, his theme being
“Thé Christian’s Invitation.” This
was well received by all present. At
7:30 Rev. R. J. Daniel preached the
Sacramentad Sermon, and adminls
tered the Lord’s Supper. There was
a wonderful manifestation of God's
divine presence with his people. The
collections were good during the day.
The services closed and the people
returned to their homes, feeiing that
they had a good time in Mechanics
burg, Pa.
BALTIMORE NEWS.
Church and Sunday-school Work
—Baltimore City Guards. .
On Sunday morning, at the First
Baptist churck, corner of Carolina
and Elderry streets, of which Rev. J.
C. Allen has charge, he notified the
congregation that in the afternoon
he purposed to preach a Fourth of
July sermon. Owingto one of the
missionary ministers coming in and
preaching for Dr. Allen the sermon
was postponed uctil evening. At 8
o'clock a hymn was given out by
John Wye, a local preacher, and the
oldest member of the church, who is
always on hand. Ile is known as
the old Maryland Daptist war horse.
He has been a Baptist for abont fifty
years.
Rev. J. C. Allen is an able man,
and when he preaches he gives able
instruction, and when he turns aside
and takes part in the political issues,
he is a second James G. Blaine. He
can master the rostrum manly; he
knows how to say, what to say and
when to say it. We must say that
he has done great good in Baltimore
since he has been here, in bringing
our people up to that high stand of
citizenship. His heart is warm for
young men who try to make them
selves men. And just let me say
that anyone coming to Baltimore call
at the First Baptist Church, and you
will find that the Rev. J. C. Allen is
an able man as stated. Sunday
school is conducted by T. B. Johnson,
who is known all over the city and
State as the children’s friend. He is
a great worker in the school. He
took hold of tha school one year ago,
with three or four teachers and offi
cers and forty or fifty scholars, and
now the school numbers about three
or four hundred, and thirty teachers
and officers; and he says that he is
going to have one thousand this year
if he lives. I think he will do it. Ie
has good teachers and officers by his
side; his assistant is C. Smith, who is
always on hand and prompt to duty.
D. Noel, the librarian, is always ready
to accommodate the children with
books. William Hopkins, the organ
ist, is always on hand and gives good
music. The punctual teachers are
Mrs. Templeman, Mrs. Reynolds, Mrs.
Garnder, Mrs. Armstrong, Miss Carrie
Barnes, J. H. Johnson, Miss. Doug
herty, Mr. Robinson, J. Mason, Jobn
Johnson, James Tates, Arthur Rich
ardson, William Sharpe and John
Reid. James I. Reid, the instructor
of schools, is on hand.
At the company meeting of the
Baltimbre City Guards, James 11.
Reid, the orderly sergeant, waselected
second lieutenant of that company.
Captain William Spencer was the
president of the meeting.

CHILDREN'S DAY.
Appropriate Exercises in the
Bethel A. M. E. Church.
Last Sunday was Children’s Day in
the Short St. A. M. E. Church and
was appropriately celebrated. An
interesting programme consisling of
vocal and instramental musie, ad
dresses and essays, was presented to
a large audience. Rev. Gould pre
sided assisted by Superintendent J.
8.-Sample. Miss Jennie Briscoe
read an interesting essay, as did also
Miss Fields. Discussion upon several
important subjects was indulged in
by a number of gentlemen. The ex
ercises closed with a grand rally.
Thrift and Enterprise
Jackson Eldridge, a colored farmer
of Baker county, gives his race an
example of thrift and enterprise that
they would do well to follow. He
not only raises corn suflicient to run
his farm, but raises his own meat.
Aund, still better, he has meat to
sell. He brought to Albany, yester
day, about one hundred pounds of
bacon which he sold to Mr. Morris
Mayer, and says he has already sold
this season $250 worth of meat. He
pays cash for all of his supplies, and
his credit is as good as any man’s,
white or black, up to the measure of
his property in the county. Such a
man deserves commendation.—Albany
Ga., News.
DERRIK'S WITHDRAWAL,
DECLINES TO BE AN ELECTOR
AT-LARGE.
The Rev. W. B. Derrick’'s Reasons
For His Action.
New Yorg, July 2.—The Rev. W.
B. Derrick, pastor of the Bethel Afri
can Methodist Episcopal Church; has
declined to serve as a candidate for
one of the Electors-at-Large on the
Republican ticket. Ie indignantly
repels the charge that his withdrawal
is on account of the charges that he
is not an American citizen. He says
that he was born in ITayti and came
to this country 24 years ago and took
out his naturalization papersin Boston
in 1867. Prior to becoming a citizen
he served daring the rebellion in one
of the Massachusetts colored regi
ments. His letter of declination is
as follows :
New York, July 1, 1884.
The Hon. C. Van Cott, Fire Com
missioner, New York City :
Dear Sik :—Your kind letter came
to hand informing me of your and
the committee’s actfon in selecting
me for the high position on the State
ticket as Elector at-Large. I would
have replied earlier, but owing to the
business in connection with our An
nual Conference at Brooklyn, which
is now in session, and has been for
the last five days, I have been pre
vented from doing so. I am under
lasting obligations to yourself and the
committee for the high honor con
ferred, but having been chosen by
my church and brethren to be the re
presentative to meet the Methodist
Episcopal Church to assist in arrang
ing the affairs for the Centennial cele
bration of American Methodism the
coming Fall, I find it will be impossi
ble to fill the high office. I must,
therefore, respecttully decline. Wish
ing the grand old party success, I am
yours, very respectfully,
W. B. DERricCK.
Mr. Derrick said that his letter
gave the actual reasons for his declin
ation. “I shall vote and work for
the ticket, and should do the same
no matter who the candidates were.
I bave recommended as my successor
Dr. Johnson, a noted colored physi
cian, and I hope he will be selected.”
At the National Committoe rooms
nothing was krown yesterday after—
noon of Dr. Derrick’s withdrawal.
The officer in charge said that no
steps would be taken to fill the va
cancy until the meeting of the State
Central Committee, which would be
held next week.

The grand rally in the court house
last Sanday, under the auspices of the
Mill Street A. M. E. Church, was a
grand success, both spiritually and
financially. It being Children’s Day,
and also set apart for the raising of
$500.00 to make the final -payment
on the new church lot, the cost of
which was $1,000.00. The Rev: J.
M. Palmer succeeded in raising about
$200.00 on Sunday last, and on Tues

who has touched elbows with the
world and its well-known men.
