John Gordon, D, D.. and Rev. Russell H. Conwcll, D. S., of Philadelphia Graceful Address of Rev. C. M. Qlflln, D. D., of Elm Park Church Others Who Partici pated in the Exercises An In formal Reception Followed. Probably the most impressive and in teresting recognition service which ever took place in this city was that of last evenlng.when Rev. Robert F. Y. Pierce, tho brilliant divine recently called to the Penn Avenue Baptist church, was formally installed pastor of that great congregation. On the platform were clergymen not only of enviable local importance, but of world-wide fame. A vast throng of people, representing many denominations, was present. The decorations of flags, rlch-hued llowera and many tropical plants were most elaborate. A largo chorus choir under tho direction of Professor Haydn Evans provided fine music. Dr. L. M, Gates, the moderator, ad Interlum, of the church, presided. Rev. F. S. Mathews, of the Scranton Street Baptist church, read the fourth chap ter of II Corinthians. Rev. Mr. Har ris, of Calvary church, Taylor, offered the invocation. Rev. Thomas De Gruchy, pastor of tho Jackson Street Baptist church, made a graceful ad dress of welcome in extending the hand of fellowship fiom the Baptist Brother hood of Scranton. "A Message to the Church" was given by Rev. John Gordon, D. D., pastor of the Second Baptist church, of Phila delphia. Dr. Gordon is a man of dis tinguished personal appearance and possesses a rloh, melodious voice. He stated that ho had known Rev. Mr. Pierce for many years and congratu lated the church on securing him. The speaker gave a word of loving admon ition to tho congregation. He believed there was a danger In the modern nge of great things. We all want great churches, such as Dr. Conwell has. ot 3,000 members, nnd are likely to lose sight of the Individual and his respon sibility. He urged united and personal service of love In the church. Rooted In the love of Christ, pastor and people will be bound together Irrevocably. DR. GIFFIN'S REMARKS. Mrs. B. T. Jaync sang a soprano solo, after which Rev. Dr. C. M. Glffln, of Elm Park Methodist Episcopal church, presented fraternal greetings of the churches in his own inimitably happy way. He said that he came from a sect that was not at first greeted In this fashion. It had to wait a long time for a welcome, but it came to stay, and had grown a little and was now re spectable in numbers if nothing else. From the other side of ever lowering fences he was glad to give the now pastor a good greeting. He represented the churches, and was not one who said he came from "a" church or "the" church, and that he was "It." Ho wished It understood that we have fellowship In the churches In this town. He never was In a place where so much concord was found. If the new pastor could save souls he would find no Jealous animosity. He hoped Brother Pierce would "get there," and could assure him that he would have no unkind epithets bestowed on him by the other clergymen of the city. Dr. Gates announced that a number of telegrams of congratulation and also of regret that absence was unavoid able had been received, among them messages from the secretary of the Baptist Young People's union and the president of the Sunday Breakfast as sociation. General Secretary F. W. Pearsall, of the Railroad Young Men's Christian association, gave a welcome to Scran ton as a field for Christian service. He spoke earnestly of the problems of for eign emigration, of the social evil and of the great army of unconverted which the 'churches of God must solve. In the name of the workers who were trying to bring about the salvation of men ho gave a hearty welcomo to the new pastor. DR. CONWELL INTRODUCED. Dr. Gates then gracefully' introduced the famous divine, litterateur and lec turer. Rev. Russell H. Conwell. D. D., pastor of Grace church, Philadelphia, who delivered the address of the eve ning, 11 brilliant and most magnetic address Indeed, He began by Illustrating the imper ious utterance "Go!" in a vivid de scription of a Yale boat race starting at the magic word. This church has reached the place where the best woid to be said to It was "Go!" The difference between a church and a club Is that a club says "Come," the church says "Go," The accuse.tlu'i that the church Is a religious club, is a mistake except In rare cases. When a man is called as a pastor it means that he Is called of God to serve the church. In the Baptist denomina tion it is believed that the minister is the servant of the church, ns long as the directions are in accordance with his conscience. This church has not called Brother Pierce to be a governess or a nurse, as In some instances a pastor is seemingly desired. "He Is not called to visit you per sonally. You have called a man to go," said the speaker. "A church mem ber who can't stay In the church un less the pastor visits him would better be kicked out at once. There are plenty of hyprocrltes and sinners in the world who need visiting, unless jou belong In this category you don't want It. The church of Jesus Christ is not meant for jou to pat each other on the back, and for a mutual admira tion society. You have not called a man to entertain you, to bo a circus clown, nor a theatrical manager. WHAT A CALL MEANS. You have called a man to go. You may have a man In your number who Is as much called to carry on his mines as Brother Pierce is called to preach ti For Headache) I don't believe there ever was so good a pill as Aycr's. I have been a victim of ter rible headaches, and never found anything to relieve me so quickly as AVER'S PILLS 9 C. L. NEWMAN, Duj; Sptw, Vi ,L(he Gospel.

He cannot go, so he pays of his substance that his pastor may go in his stead. Rev. W. J. Ford offered prayer after Dr. Conwell's address and the congre gation sang "Blest Be the Tie." Tho benediction was pronounced by Rov. Mr. Pierce. Many telegrams nnd letters of con gratulation were received by Mr. Plcice. Among the telegrams was the following from Lewis U. Bean, pres ident of the Sunday Breakfast asso ciation ot Philadelphia. It read as fol lows: "I congratulate you, I also congratu late your congregation. They have done well." The following was one of the letters received: Chicago, Sept. l'J, 1S5S. To the Members of tho Penn Avenue Uap. tlst Church, Scranton, Pa. Dear Brethren; It would glo mo groat pleasure to be present at the tecognltlon services In which aformal wclcom to tlio church and tho community Is extended to your pastor. Rev. R. F. V. Pleico. As I am denied this privilege, allow me In this way to join In tho general con gratulations and to express the hope that the relations Into which you havo mu tually entered may be fraught with rlcn. est blessings for the spiritual life of the church nnd the quickening of the com munity. Your pastor has rendered and is still rendering to tho cause of the Bap tist Young Pcople'B unlen of America an Invaluable service by the consecrated use of his fertile Imagination and his facile pen. Thousands of our young people have, therefore, a personal Interest In him and In his work, and on behalf of tho great organization Into which they uro banded 1 send you this message of greet ing. May your fellowship bo a fellowship In light and love, end the ministry of the Word among you be a ministry of power which shall find a response in all hearts and exert an influence upon all lives. Yturs fraternally, E. 13. Chlvers, General Secretary B. Y. I. U. of A. Dr. Conwell then gave a scathing denunciation of tho Idea that a min ister must be able to draw a crowd illustrating by the well-known book "In His Steps." He said that a pro fessional visitor was not the main qual ification of a pastor. At the conclusion of the services an informal reception was held In the parlors when the greetings nnd Inter change of courtesies occupied an hour or more. HON M. F. SANDO NAMED. He Is Not Inclined, However, to Ac cept the Congressional Nomina tion Which Has Been Tender ed Him by the Committee, Hon. M. F. Sando i? the Democratic candidate for congress. He was chosen by the county com mittee last night to fill the vacancy caused by tho declination of Ira. II. Burns. Assurances were also given the committee that M. F. Sando would ac cept. At the meeting of the committee last Saturday nlgnt a committee consisting of P. J. Nealls, John J. Fahey and George S. Horn were named to suggest a suitable candidate for congress at last night's meeting. The suggestion was made by Mr. Nealls who named Mr. Sando. He had nn Interview with that, gentleman ho said and could soy to the committee that If nominated he would accept. He made tho nomin ation of Mr. Sando and the motion pre vailed. A committee consisting of Mr. Nealls. Mr. Fahey, .Mr. Horn and the chair man of tho county committee. Colonel Frank J, Fltzslmmons, was named to formally notify Mr. Sando of his nom ination. M. J. Cadden, R, J. Beamish and John J. Durkln was directed to secure suitable headquarters for the county committee for the campaign. From an interview with Mr. Sando last night It Is evident that Mr. Nealls took too much for granted when he as sured tho committee that Mr. Sando would accept. Mr. Sando returned from a trip to Hnrrlsburg nt 9.01 o'clock last night and knew nothing of the committee's action until a Tribune reporter waited upon him and asked If he Intended to accept the nomination. Ho declined to say whether or not he would accept the nomination, desir ing to await official notification from the committee, but from the trend ot a lengthy conversation on the matter it was very evident that Mr. Sando is not inclined to accept. FUNERAL OF D. C. DRIESBACH. It Was in Charge of Coeur de Lion Commandery of Templars. Tho funeral of the late D. G. Dries bach wus held yesterday afternoon irom the residence, 309 South Main avenue. The attendance of friends was vry large, many coming from out of town. Several societies were well rep rensented. The floral tributes were numerous and beautiful. The services wero conducted by Rev.

' Thirty-Fifth Annual Convention Held Yesterday In Red Men's Hall West Scranton At Present There Aro But Two Subordinate Lodges Attached to tho Grand Lodge Ob jects ot the Order Are Set Forth In Brief New Lease of Life Is Hoped for the Organization. The thirty-fifth annunl convention of tho grand lodge of tho Loyal Knights of America convened In regular session in Red Men's hall. West Scranton, yes terday at 10 a. m. Tho attendance was small, owing to tho fact that but two lodges of the order are working under the above title. The convention was presided over by National Grand Master JoBeph H. Da vis, and the customary opening ex ercises were gone through with. Rep lesentatlves present were: James Ley shon, Thomas J. Reynolds, William A. Phillips, Walter Wllklns nnd David R. Jones, No. 21: David S. Reese, Wil liam Gray, Thomas J, Williams and Isaac Harris, No. 37. Besides the fol lowing a large number of past masters were also In attendance. The past official degree was conferred upon applicants and the credentials re ferred to committee. Grand Secretary Joseph Oliver then read tho minutes of tho regular session held at Olyphant and the special session at Taylor. Tho finance committee made Its report, which showed a financial gain. Pre vious to tho present year tho grand lodge of the Loyal Knights of America had been badly handicapped by an enoimous debt, caused through legal trouble with dissenting lodges. At present, however, the grand body is better situated, financially, than ever before. ATTEMPT UNSUCCESSFUL. One year ago when the order con cned nt Olyphant It numbered 1.9S9 members. At that session legislation was attempted that would result In the dissolution of the order. This move on the part of tho dissatisfied lodges was defeated. However, they succeed ed In passing a resolution to the effect that lodges anxious to withdraw should do so by paying a pro rata share of the Indebtedness. These lodges took advantage of this opening and at once paid their share and withdrew. Lodge after lodge took that course until today the order, as said hereto fore, consists only of two lodges, En terprise, with 20G members, and Key stone, with 183 members, both of the West Side. The report of the finance committee showed receipts of the past year to be ?834.2.: expenditures, $69S.15; leaving a balance after all bills are paid of $241.64. Again the dissolution matter was broached, but action was deferred until the afternoon session. In the afternoon the resolution of dissolution was brought up and dis cussion was Indulged In for over an hour. The same was lost and once more the Loyal Knights of America rroceeds along the course previously laid down. It seems that the bone of contention to the order In general was the enor mous expenses attached to the grand lodge. At this session, however, all expenditures that could be necessarily s"t nclde were done away with, and In he future the subordinate lodges will not In nny way be hampered In this respect. There being a vacancy in tho offices of treasurer and worthy deputy master elections were mnde, and resulted In the selection of Thomas J. Reynolds ai worthy deputy master and William Gray as treasurer. OFFICERS INSTALLED. Th officers-elect were then Installed as follows: National grand master, Isaac Harris; grand deputy, Thomas J. Reynolds; recording secretary, Jo seph Oliver; treasurer, William Gray; board of directors, William A, Phillips, Walter Wllklns and William G. Phil lips. The officers having been seated the grand master appointed the various committees for the ensuing year, after which the membership went Into com mittee of the whole to consider changes to be made in the laws In conformity with conditions under which the order at present exists. Why such a society should ever prove a failure Is remark able to a certain degree, for as regards Its object and principles they may bo compared with those of any organiza tion in existence. It, however, has not as yet failed and there may yet some day arise a flourishing organization. The objects of the Loyal Knights of America are as follows: "Tho Loyal Knights of America is if fil Great variety of Medium aud High Class Goods, Latest Styles, Lowest Prices, iu the following weaves: Ben galiues, Poplins, Coverts, Tailor Serges, French Broad cloths, Cheviots, Chudah Cloths, etc. Black Goods.

It is purely American in Its char acter and protestant in Its principles. It requires an unswerving support to the authority of the government and a strict obedience to its constitution and laws. Its alms ore to sustain right against the encroachment of wrong. Its teachings Inculcate the largest chnrlty. It enjoins upon all the prin ciples of probity, rectitude and virtue, nnd the members pledge themselves, as far in their power lies, to preserve Inviolate that most glorious privilege, 'Liberty of Conscience,' nnd to protect its members and all good citizens from violence, oppression and wrong. UPHOLDS PUBLIC SCHOOLS. "It upholds the public schools and tho reading of the Bible therein without note or comment, nnd Is opposed to any part of tho public funds being ured to foster or disseminate sectarian institutions or views, whether Protest ant, Roman Catholic or otherwise. "The order is not opposed to Immi gration provided the seekers for homes In this glorious republic leave behind them their foreign ideas, nnd are will ing to become American citizens and be governed by the laws and customs of our country, but in Its principles and teachings It opposes in unmeas ured terms the Immigration of anarch ists, socialists nnd others of their or other foreign Ideas, nnd is strictly op posed to the Importation of pauper la bor. It is also its purpose to create, in each of its subordinate lodges, a fund with which to aid worthy dis tressed brothers nnd their families in times of illness, distress and grief." Several other Important matters were brought before1 the body, and after re ceiving consideration adjournment was made In recess until such time as tho chair sees fit, or Is ordered to recon vene the session. ROEBER COULDN'T DO IT. His Opponent Last Night Was "At las," a Famous Wrestler They Will Meet Again Tonight in the Academy. Tho famous wrestler "Atlas" gave a gteat exhibition of defensive wrestling against Ernest Rocber, tho world's champion, at the Academy ot Music last night. Roeber was unable to throw him In fifteen minutes and as a result a special match wns mude for tonight. This agreement was not reached until after a long wrangle at the conclusion of last night's bout. The real name of "Atlas" Is James McGee. His home Is at Hamilton, Ont. On Thursday night of last week he wrestled Roeber at Albany and won a side bet and $50, according to Roeber's offer to give that amount to any man not thrown In fifteen minutes. McGee came to Scranton Saturday night with his wife and his manager. He met Jack Skelly here and asked Skelly to challenge Roeber from the audience. This was done Monday night. Considerable time was wasted last night In choosing a referee from the audience. Charles Waldron, manager ot the variety company now playing at the Gaiety theater, was finally agreed upon. McGee made no attempt to thow the champion, though he several times secured body holds on Roeber that In terfered with the lattei's wind. For nearly tho whole of the fifteen minutes Roeber pushed, pulled and tugged in an effort to secure holds on McGee, who lay on his stomach. At the conclusion of tho fifteen min utes McGee had not been thiown. He had wriggled himself out of many a tlckllFh situation, however. The audience was noisy throughout tho contest. Some one yelled "fake" at Its close, but the charge Is hardly borne out. No wrestler, certainly not one with McGee's reputation, Is willing to have his face battered and bruised ngalnst a mat twice or thee times a week as wns McGee's last night, for a nominal salary. Roeber explained to the audience who his opponent wns nnd charged him with being "unprofessional" In "follow lrjK the show" when It was generally ac cepted that Roeber's offer was particu larly fpr local men. McGee charged Roeber with doing the same thing when Muldoon was champion. Roeber did not deny It. After each had made several speeches Roeber agreed to forfeit $150 If he could not thow McGee In twenty-five min utes tonight. McGee accepted and a wager of $50 a side was made on the result. Roeber summoned his manager from the box office and posted $100. McGee furnished $30. Later at the Westminster hotel Roeber posted his remaining $100 and the two men signed articles for the match tonight. William Morris, of Morris Bros., the shoe merchants, was agreed upon for stakeholder. DRESS il COUNTY TEACHERS ORGANIZE. Candidates for Professional Certifi cates Form a Class. A training class for county tcacers who aro candidates for professional certificates has been organized under tho direction of Superintendent J. C. Taylor.
