S.T. Jackson Makes An
louncement In Methodist
Church Last Night.
^?r*on Preached By Pastor Made Great
laprestion? In Twenty-Five Years Lo
cal Methodists Have Been Exceedingly
Liberal? Interesting Discourse Listen
To By Large Congregation |
At the conclusion of his sermon,
nring which he recited the history
if Methodism in Perth Ambjy, Rev.
T. Jaokson made an announcement
btch greatly surprised a large con
egation in the Simpson M. E.
hnrch last night. He said that
100,000 had b4en ariven by them in
he last twenty-fire years for church
?ark. This, he said, was a very oon
irvative figure and did by no means
elude all the money contributed by
e different societies in the chnroh.
The service, which marked the last
irmon of the castor before Confer
ence, which begins Wednesday of this
week, was opened with prayer by S.
Reohnitzer. ? The pastor announced
?hat arrangements had been made for
all the meetings as usual this week.
Mr. Jaokson will also be away next
Sunday. In beginning his sermon the
pastor said; "The hardest thing for
me tonight, is to know what not to
?ay. "
The subject of his sermon was taken
from the twenty-third chapter of the
book of Numbers. "What hath God
wrought?" In dwelling upon the
historv of Methodism and its Ohurch
in this city he divided it into three
periods. The first, that of organiza
tion, the second of growth and expan
I - sion and the third of reconstruction.
Regarding the first period he said:
"As early as 1772 Bishop Asbury
oamc to this city at that time, bnt a
very small town, and preached to a
handful of Methodists. It is true
there was no ohuroh, but in 178U there
was a Methodist Society organized
which grew bo that in time tijey built
the first Methodist Ohurch on the
corner of Gommeroe and High streets.
As time went on they saw the need
of a new ohuroh and finally bouaht
the lot where this church stands. "
Mr. Jaokson dwelt largely on the
grit, "gumption," and determination
of those members, some of whom are
still living, and were at the time oalT
ed crazy in their efforts to build the
present edifice. The sacrifice they
made, he said, will go down in history
and he hoped to come back and live
to see the time when the debt of the
ohuroh will be wiped out and the
edifice completely renovated. Mr.
Jaokson claimed there was an error in
history in determining the time when
the Methodists first came to Perth
Contract For New Vault.

I contract from the Perth Ambov Trust

Masons and carpenters were at work
last Friday preparing the foundation
for the heavy vanlt.
This vanlt, which the Trnst Com
pany is putting in, is something which
the citizens of Perth Amboy have
long needed. It is absolutely fire
nroof and burslar "proof and contains
a number of compartments of different
sizes which can be rented at very
reasonable prices. Some of these
compartments are large enough for
the storage silverware, etc.

Continue Early Closing For a Time At
At the last meeting of the members
of Retail Clerks Union, Local No. 00,
it was decided to disband the organ
ization. Two years ago this April, a
number of the retail clerks got to
gether, held meetings in Union Hall,
Smith street, and the organization
was fhe result The clerks all over
town, and maqy of the merchants
were in favor of it, and the nnion
prospered under that old motto ' ' In
Union there is Strength. "
Until a short time ago everything
went well, the clerks attended all the
meetings regularly, there was hardly
a card that was not paid at least two
weeks ahead. Finally the olerks be
gan to stay away from the meetings.
One by one they forgot to pay their
dnes. At the meeting Wednesday
night, out of all the nnion olerkB
in town, only fonr were present and
they were officers. It was then decid
ed to disband. Todav the last of the
large cards, which have been in the
show windows of several stores, are
being gathered by the clerks. They
will be stored away nntil the early
closing movement is again revived.
A number of the merchants say that,
although the olerks union is no more,
that they will continue to olose as
usual for at least a while yet.
