found that Washington had contributed

me letters asking for subscriptions, was
gratifying to the committee, and the
members last night were confident the
amount needed would be raised
Larger contributions are expected to
day, as Mr. White last night placed in
the mall about 1,000 more letters.
Another step toward the consummation
of plans was taken yesterday afternoon

During the singing of "O Come, All Te
Faithful." the shepherds, wise men, and
others will be shown. This tableau will
be staged on the other side of the steps.
The next hymn will be "Hark, the Herald
Angels Sing," and It will be Illustrated
ij a number of white-robed figures that
irlll form a tableau between the pillars
tt the top of the steps, while the fourth
