Albert Leon was introduced as the
man who belongs to a race which gets
the money. Mr. Leon laughingly re
plied and told a funny story witch
he said would illustrate how the race
to which he had the honor to belong
"got the money.” "The only thing
I could never understand,” said Mr.
Leon, “is, where you people get the
money that we take from you.”
Joseph B. Quick followed Mr. Leon
and spoke on the "Object of Organ
ization.” Mr. Quick spoke to the
point and told a number of interest
ing facts in regard to his subject.
"We are a body without factions,’1
said Mr. Quick, “and I think that in
'all organizations, factions should be
Judge Lyon a Speaker.
Judge Adrian Lyon was next intro
duced by Toastmaster Crowther, who
said the ex-assemblyman would speak
on the bar, "Not the Packer House
bar,” carefully added the doctor.
Judge Lyon told a number of facts,
and said that he had not chosen his
own subject, but would nevertheless
tell a few things about the bar. The
judge told a few stories to illustrate
some points, and was greeted with
much applause at the close of his
Toastmaster Crowther then made
a short address and told the members
that, one of their old comrades was
present and would talk to them. Dr
Crowther told of their members’ work
in this city at one time, and intro
duced Thomas Armstrong, of Phila
delphia, as one of the charter mem
bers of the Garfield Battery. Mr
Armstrong formerly lived in this city
and was a Schoolmate of Captain
Ferd Garretson. Later he went to
Philadelphia, where he became sue
cessful in business and politics tint1
president of the common council of
that city.
Mr. Armstrong s .vauress.
Cheering and applause greeted Mr.
Armstrong, and it was evident that
he had not been forgotten.
"Toastmaster, Captain Ferd, my
old girl, and fellow comrades,” said
Mr. Armstrong, after the applause
had subsided, "I want to thank you
for your kind greeting, and I am here
tonight, not because I had nothing
else to do, but becauso nothing could
keep me-away. I left this city a num
ber of years ago, but I did not forget
the place and my friends hero. 1
have said many times if there is a
garden of Eden it is my old home,
Perth Amboy. I have been success
ful in the city of brotherly love, in
fact every one is trying to give me
something. I am now president of
the common council in that city, and
while I have not always been success
ful in that work, I have always tried
to carry out my convictions.
'Things that are not morally good
can’t be politically right, and I have
tried to remember that motto. The
crown of success is not for the man
that does the most, but for the man
that does his be3t, and 1 always hope
every member of this organization
will do his best.
This afternoon I took a walk
around the town with Ferd and many
fond recollections were brought be
fore my eyes. We tool; a walk to
that little cemetery where we all
have departed treasures, and I want
to request that when I have passed
away that my hones will be brought
to this city for their final resting
place. I made a trip to Palestine last
year and in a number of places left
my card, with the address of Phila
delphia on it, but I want to tell you
that I also wrote the name of Perth
Amboy on the card. 1 tell you, com
rades, if there Is a garden of Eden in
existence, I never say a place that so
much resembled It as Perth Amboy.”
Mr. Armstrong told a number of
Rtories, and concluded his address
with a short poem.
Mr. Armstrong's speech closed the
ceremonies and the banquet broke up
