the cars were overcrowded and It was im

Fourteenth aud U has greatly Increased
the numbers using the lines of the Traction
Company, and It has been found Impractic

cars to the needs of travel.
There was much crowding and hurry
ycterday In the efforts to carry passen

destination. In some cases It happened
that the sightseer was treated to a double
disappointment. He was crowded and
uncomfortable In the cars and after all
was not allowed a sight of the lions.

The niotormen and conductors were as

possible under the circumstances. But at
two or three points there were Inevitable
jams, aud as a result there was some
friction. In some cacs l-nsscngers pre

fare in order to sale themselves from in
convenience and discomfort. At the over
crowded points conductors sometimes be
came hurried and arbitrary.
An example of this occurred at Seventh
and U streets yesterday arternoon. Tho

great crowds for the country, and its cars
were arrivlrg regularly and rapidly. The
Chevy Chase cars were less frequent and

At tho same moment two negro boys
crowded in from the other end if the seat
and the gentleman aud his family gave up
their trip In disgust. The conductorapolo
gized by saying that he was on the wrong
side of the car to get on.
Tho ikiUils where the congested traffic
was worse were ou the U street crossings
in the city and at the Park station aud
Chevy Chase circle.
As passengers were ready toconie in from
the park they found the cars bound for the
city were overcrowded and passed without
stopping. At the same time cars going
out were stopping with plenty of room. It
was clear that the way to go to Washington
was to start in the other direction, which
very many did.
All the way out It was evident that to
get off was to run the risk ot waiting,
justnsnt the park. At Clievy Chase circle
there was often a great- crowd. Rather
than lose his place the passenger might
readily pay another double fare, and so
come back to Washington from the park

After this sort of thing had gone on for
some time, and it wasev ident that a number
of vMtors at the park did not intend to
take the long trip to Chevy Chase at double
cost, an extra car was run out to bring
them in. It left the park station in a
drizzling rain after dark.
Several cars came in later with women

been broken down. Contracts, Just re

The principal service of the day was
that which began nt 11 o'clock and lasted

church and overflowed Into the i-arlsli hall,
which adjoins on the east-. While the wor

which they had displayed In bearing the
discomforts incident to the erection of
the new church without a sign of disap

BISHOP PA RETS SERMON.
Bishop Parct then entered the pulpit
He asked that the blessing or heaven might
rest uion the worthy congregation and
their faithful pastor. He was happy that
their years ot arduous toll had be-en so
well requited and that their rosy hopes
had been so vvelL fulfilled. He congratu
lated the people on the elegance and com
pleteness of their new house of worship.
He hoped that the day would never come
when the stanch tie which bound people
and pastor would be weakened. It was a
union or Joyful strength which should never
be disturbed. He said that as long as he
touched upon the subject of the relations
or pastor and people he would make that
theme the burden of his remarks. He
liked to talk along those lines. The re
lations tietwen pastor and people were
seldom 'adequately understood. To the
averaire nilndi the only significance which
I the word "pastor" possesi.ed was that It
meant some sort of a clergyman.
The duty of a pactor was to feed, to
protect and to gul)le his flock. The word
itrelf suggested pastoral things. Words
w ere frequently "uncertain and unsatisfac
tory vehicles of thought. They were un
reliable for the reason that their mcauing
was mutable. They often lost their primi
tive meaning in which they were usually
most pregnantly suggestive, and assumed
PASTOR IS THE SHEPHERD.
A word which at one time possessed a
wealth, a rlchnera of meaning, by use and
repetition, lost Its lmpresslveness and be
came commonplace. The exact f orra of tnc
word partor occurs, said Bishop Paret, but
once in the New Testament, and there It
meaus the feeder, the shepherd. The pas
tor thould make tt his life work to feed, to
lead and to protect his flock.
The bishop touched lightly upon the word
sacrifice. Some men had distorted Its
meaning. Hedld not believe that they ever
repeated the sacrifice on Calvary. It could
not be repeated. The language of the New
Testament was explicit on that score.
In conclusion he rejoiced with them In
the completion of their great work. He
asked a proper and prayerful recognition
of the relations of pastor and people.
The choir sang Gilchrist's anthem, "Ex
cept the Lord Build the House." Then
followed the recessional and the congre
gation passed out.
The new structure Is of Gothic architec
ture, and Is constructed of Seneca quarry
redface sandstone and red brick. The
aisles and transcepts are marked by gables,
and at their Intersection a lantern tower,
thirty-four feet square, rises out. The
flnlal ot this tower is 100 feet above grade.
The architects of the church were Charles

And his wife are of a quiet, retiring

been regular disturbances ut the Carroll

sound or oaths and the loud tones ot an

"It is all on account ot whisky," said
Mrs. Carroll last night. "John, who Is

by me. I have be-en clothing and let-ding

went through the house and Into the rear

yard he is 6a Id to have continued to threaten
his parent unless he got the money, nnd Mr.
Carroll alleges his son seized a tall pole
In the yard and threatened to hit him with It.
"I have put up with it as long as I pos

never done tiny work, and I have not asked
that he should. If he had only behaved

In the opening ltev. Dr. Hamlin related
the manner ot lliu conversion of Paul

It was not fear, rorhe knewnosuch reeling,
for he was mad aud his heart hardened aud

What was it, then, that brocght this
miraculous change? It was a vision, not .1

Mr Jernlgan urges the establishment ot an
American bank at Shanghai. At present
the trade between the United 8tates and
China Is through the medium or eschange
negotiated through British banks In China
The institution's profits on exchange could
be made as wellby an American bank. In
conclutlon the report fays:
"In the value ot manufactured products
and banking power the United States have
no superior and no equal In the world. In
1893 the manufactured products of Great
Britain were valued at $4,20O,000,0GO.
and those of the United States at SS.100,
000,000, which, compared with the In
dustrial statistics or European nations,
discloses the fact that the Joint German
and French manufactured products will
hot much more than make up the differ
ence between the values ot American and
With such a balance sheet placed by the
side of the three principal manufacturing
countries or Europe, why should Amer
icans fear competition, nnd why should
they not dominate the commerce of Asian
lands and seas?
The supremacy o the United States In
banking power Is no less marked.
The total banking power of the world is
csUmated at $20,000,000,000. Of this
"s'orth America, mainly the United States,
controls $0,000,000,000, while all Europe.
Including Great Britain, controls the bal
ance, showing that the United States holds
about half as much of the world's banking
power aa all Europe combined, and greatly
more Uian any single country In Europe or
the world. The country then- which con
trols the world's finance should hold the
mastery of the world's commerce, and the
chief share of the world's wealth. This is
the problem which the business men of the
United States should solve, and, by well
directed efforts, in their favor."

panels of rancy work In high relief. Below

three arches with blue ground crossed by
bands ot brown. To the right and left of
the stage the walls are of gold color, re
