in wealth and religious vitality the First

Stcno Church," as its home structure on

site of tho first Presbyterian church in
Cleveland. The present structure was
built in 1S55, and rebuilt three years
later. The architecture has many of
the characteristics of the late Norman
and early English periods, with heavily
buttressed walls and round headed
doors and windows. There are two
towers, the main ona of which at the
Ontario street corner rises in a spire 215

avenues, wnere a Deaunrui new stone
church has recently been dedicated, and
a chapel still further out in the East
End, on Bolton avenue. It may be called
the mother of Cleveland Presbyterian
ism, nearly every other society of that
church in the city having started as
chapels and missions of the old stone
church. It is the largest Presbyterian
church in northern Ohio, having over
1,000 members. The pastors are Rev.
H. C. Had.3-11, D. D and Rev. J. H.
The oldest and largest Methodist Epis
copal church in the city is the First
church, at the corner of Erie and Euclid
avenue. It is built of Sandusky lime
stone, is Gothic in design and is generally
considered one of the finest Metho&sfc
Episcopal church edifices in north
ern Ohio. The present building was
dedicated in 1874. The seating capacity
is about 1,500. The chapel is to the rear
and on the second floor.

REVOLUTIONARY RECORD OF SPANISH

Buenos Ayres The Bloody Annals of

Copyright by American Press Association.
The recent civil war in Buenos Ayres

side of the United States, Canada, British
Honduras and Guiana, and places it again

part of tho world this is bad enough per se.

prosperity injured, and its growth checked
for at least the next ten years.
The city of Buenos Ayres is a capital, a
1 metropolis and even more. On account of
the river system of the continent it com
mands not only the trade of its own land
j but also a goodly part of that of Uruguay,
Paraguay and Brazil. Whilo thoroughly
I Spanish it is almost as polyglot as New
I York. Its population contains heavy rep
! refutations from Italy, Portugal, Greece,
France, Gormany, England, Ireland, Scot
j land, Holland, Denmark and China, as well
as large numbers of negroes, Indians and
! half breeds. In the past decade it has re
ceived as many if not more Italian immi
grants as the entire United States. Along
side of it the other Argentine municipali
ties, such as Rosario and Cordovan, sink
into insignificance. Its relation to the na
tion is the same as would be that of New
York to the United States, were the latter
to have a population of 9,000,000, with Chi
cago and Philadelphia cut down to 500,000
The site of the city is admirable. It lies
I n.Pon tho west bank of the great La Plata
river, which at this point is a huge arm of

freshet or inundation, and almost so by
heavy storm or high tide. The land slopea
at a small angle upward toward the in
terior, being a part of the same geologic
formution as the famous pampas or plains
Inland. The soil is fertile, and contains
enough sand and gravel to give it a superb
natural drainage. As a consequence there
is but little marsh land and little or no
malaria orz3'tnotic diseases. As compared
with Montevideo, Rio de Janiero, Bahia
and Pernambuco, Buenos Ayres i3 cleaner,
drier, cooler and far more healthful.
The original architects of the city were
wiser than those of tho older North Amer
ican cities, and laid the place out upon
i' brojui and liberal lines. The streets are
wide, straight and handsome, and every
hero and thero parks and public squares
afford breathing spaces and lounging
places to the citizens. Tho two leading
i squares were lecently the entrenched
j camps of the governmont and the revolu
tionists. That of tho former, the Plaza
Victoria, or Victoria square, is situated at
tho east end. or oldest nart of the eitv.
almost on tho river's bank. It is a mass
' of fino trees and beautiful vegetation, well
lighted by gas and electricity, and contain
ing many fine works of art. Around it
are four liuea of large buildings, including
tho cathedral, archioniscopal palace, tho
Central National bank, city hall, custom !
house, government office building and
The government buildings aro large and
commodious, and about as ugly as tho
Now York postoffice. Their shelling by
the insurgent gunboats will therefore be
a blessing in disguise. The cathedral is a
very noble edifice. It is a massive pile, 15S
feet wide and 2S3 feet long. The front is a
perfect reproduction of a Corinthian templa
at tho best period of Greek art, and its ia-
terior is famous for its beauty and com
fort. Theonly drawback is a clumsy dome,
which suggests a monster rifle bullet, and
which is as ugly as the faoada i beautiful.

Masses, and enjoys popular respect and,
Twimt is more important, support. The

architectural feature of the city, and

The other great square which was held by
1 the insurgents is the Plana Lsvalle or Plaza

and a republic proclaimed, i3 not theibrst
in her Interesting: history". Her first in
surrection occurred as far back as 1577.
1'he second, which was a general rising
galnst a foreign and. despotic governmont,
occurred in 1625. Fifteen yeara later thero
was an abortive effort made to start aa in
dependent kingdom. In lS a revolt
broke oat which was suppressed after
great bloodshed, but which lasted off and
on for nine 'years. A brief insnrrecticn
marked the vear 1730 an echo, as it
wero, of the Arneriran war of independ
ence. Prom 1817 to 1SS0 four attempts to
create a republic were made, fcnt all
failed. The year 18S4 saw civil war in
one-half the provinces of the empire.
From the last date to 190 a wise and
liberal government kept the nation from
internecine difficulties. The lassxeveration

Uruguay, from the time of its independ
ence in 1S2S up to 1SG9, was the scene of
hundreds of mutinies, iatrigues and revo
lutions, not one of which seems to have
been identified with any principle, and all
of which wore apparently tho results of
quarrels among politicians, office holders
and office seekers.
Venezuela came into public notice in
1S10, when it began its war of independence
againstSpain under tho famous hero, Gen.
Bolivar. The war lasted elsven years,but tho
national autonomy was not recognized until
1S45 by tho mother country. From 1S49 to
1S70 there wero not lees than thirty civil
wars between the Unionists and Federal
ists, the two chief parties of the land.
Since that timo they have contented them
selves with two revolutions.
Colombia or New Grenada, as it is per
haps better known to American readers,
began its revolutionary career in 1811,
when it declared its independence of Spain.
In 183G a terrible civil war occurred, occa
sioned very much like the present one in
Buenos Ayres by quarrels over tho na
tional debt. It lasted five years and nearly
ruined the commonweaK'h. Between 1842
and 1S73 over sixty insurrections and wide
spread mutinies occurred. Sinccthat timo
the nation has been comparatively peace
ful and has enjoyed considerable pros
perity. Ecuador started the insurrection busi
ness in 1S09 and 1812 by an attempt to ob
tain self government. These failed, butin
1820 a third attempt succeeded. During

later. It reverse, matters tho following
year and became, independent. In 1623 it
indulged in a first class revolution, fol
lowed by eight smaller ones, , tho last one
being in 1830. A long period of peace and
thrift was closed by the insurrection of
1851 under Gen. Urnola, wince which time
there has been practically no homC.troubles
larger than riots.
Peru proclaimed independence in 1S14
without success. A second time, in 1821, it
did better, the war thus bmugarafced last
ing three years, and bringing as its reward
the sought for freedom. The prize proved
hardly worth the having, an it started a
series of civil wara which conrinnd until
1S5T. During this term of sixty-bree years
there were forty-seven rebellions.
Bolivia, the inland republic, was origi
nally a part of ana known as "Upper Peru.
It secured its independence inl25, and im
mediately thereupon began civil war, in
the following these years there being not
less than fifteen popular uprisings. In
1529 there was u sneesfesf ul rebellion under
Gen. Blanco, in lSSO a counter rebellion.
Five years after occurred a hard fought
war. From this time on to 1871 the his
