The Installation service of Rev. T. De
Witt Talmage as co-pastor of the First
rresbjlcrian Church, as ordered by the
Presbytery of Washington, was ob.ercd
The. palpi t was so thickly planted with
palms that their rollige cump'elcly shaded
the crimson carpel. Chrytantheiuums and
other fall flowers were banked against
the pulpit and shed their soft perfume
tbroaghouttho church. Everything seemed
to harmonize, did harmonize, with the
golden legend that arched the pulpit with
a semi circle of gilt: " Holy, Holy, Holy,
Lord God Almighty."
By 6:30 o'clotk a mass of people pressed
against the doors of the church and reach
ed nearly to Louisiana avenue. As the mo
menta iiassed this throng increased. Mem
bers of the church were admitted first, but
everybody who came found a seat. As
the public filed in ttie organ begun and
after a few soft bars of the prelude had
floated through the Church Rev. Dr. Tal
mage entered, and passing down the aujth
aisle w as -ushered Into the pastor's study.
As the last murmur of the prelude faded
away all the cleetrioIfghUi -were turned On
and the chai.deliers and wall bulbs never
he-emed to glow so brightly.
feCENE TO REMEMBER.
Thescctie was a picturesque one. A forest
of potted plants rustled and swajed, a
multitude of fans fluttered and hundreds
programmes rattled in the hands of the
Alter organist Gat-Iel F. Johnson had
translated one of the music pnijers of
Haydn, Dr. Talniageentered from thestudy
and took a seat at the end of the second
pew of the right section. Mr. Talmage w.is
not much apparent In the proceedings of
Installation except by reference, and the
only time his Aoice was heard was when
making response to the constitutional ques
tions put by Rev. Adolos Allen, moderator
of the presbjtery or Washington, and the
brier and formal benediction which brought
the senice or Installation to an end.
Rev. Dr. Allen, as presiding officer, re
view ed the history of the call of Dr. Tal
mage, and his acceptance of it. The offi
cers of installation were seated in the pul
pit. Rev. David Gregg occupjing the cen
ter. Rev. Dr. Easton on his left, and Rev.
Dr. Bittinger on his right.
Rev. Dr. Hamlin made the prajer of in
vocation, closing with the Lord's Prajer,
in which all presentjoined. Rev. Dr.Patch,
pastor of Guutou Temple Memorial Church,
announced himn No. 01G, "Elect from the
nation. Ye One on all the earth, her char
ter of salvation, one Lord, onefnlth, one
birth." The concourse of people sang this
almost as a unit, and with considerable im.
Psalm CVH was read rcsponshcly by
the ministers and people. After the con
clusion of the last sentence, "Because of
the house of the Lord, nur God, I will
seek Thy good," the congregation sang
"Gloria Patria." Rev. Dr. Hamlin rolloweil
with the reading of a Scripture lesson and
offered a devout prayer. In which he
asked that Divine help would be given
Dr. Talmage in his administering of the
word of God and In his usefulness in lead
Jng men to Christian dlscipleshlp.
PRAYED FOR THE PASTORS.
The prayer embraced Kev. Dr. Sunder
land and Rev. Dr Allen. Ooui.od's "Re
demption" was rendered magnificently by
the ehoir, Mrs. W. L. Wilson, soprano,
being the soloist.
Rev. Dr. Gregg, pastor of Lafayette
Avenue Presbyteriau Church. Brooklyn,
then arose to delher the sermon of the
evening. He Is an oratorical-looking
clergyman, with a clean slucii face. long
hair, and spoke cry rapidn from manu
script, though lie did not confine himself
to the written pages. The title of his
was "The Future Minister- snail
He Be, and What Shall He BcT"
He first dwell on the relations that
should exist between pastor and people.
There was no interest felt in the Chris
tian mi Ulster like that fell by the Christian
people. They were the arbiters of his
ministership. The people filled the pulpit.
Individual readers were responsible for
the policy or their newspaper; individual
voters in a Congressional district were re
sponsible lor the character or their reprc
sentatles, and the individual members
of a congregation, were responsible for
It wat good for the Christian pulpit to
have let before It the Ideal consecrated
Chrittian minister. They should insist
that their niiniiters should be men who
represented God. He gave a series of
reaions lor his belief in the perpetuity of
the religious ministry The church was
not a human device. Detlre to worship
was an element In human nature; It -was a
part of the ttruclure of the soul. As men
needed ikilled Instructors in oilier things.
to they needed them in the church.
AH men couldnotgice especial study to tho
word of God There were heights which
it required labor to climb.
QUALIFICATIONS OF A MINISTER.
He told what. In tilt opinion, the minister
of the future should be. He should only
become a minister at the call of God.
He should not preach for the sake of
money, the love of apjilauie, and the love
of fame Dr. Gregg denounced what he
called n certain irreverent iplrlt in sorno
later day clergymen to ridicule the clergj
rucn of the patt The ministers of the
past had laid the foundation of our present
greatness, and the minister of to-day who
sought to undervalue the service to the
world of the devout men of the past, was
simply Injing the foundation for his own
He congratulated the Christians of Wash
ington on having secured Dr. Talmage.
Dr. Talmage was a preacher of the present
and of the future. Dr. Gregg referred to
Dr. SunderlanJ as a great man whose
twilight eclipses some men's noon. The
people of the First Church, had taken from
Brooklyn its brightest slctlit, but they had
ghen It a more central location. He re
ferred at considerable length to the "onli
ness" of Dr. .Talmage, and paid particular
attention to the dlstinguisliiM divine's
"rhetorical pause-." which, he said, flooded
his sermons with flashes of golden silence.
Hev. Dr Bltttnger announced Hymu 619
and then Dr. Allen put the formal constitu
tional questions to which Dr. Talmage, from
bis seat In the pew responded in a firm
voice: "I am,""Iam,"'Ido and will." Tho

The meeting was called to order by
Clialrmau Hinkley, of the Democratic State
Committee, who introduced tho chair
nun of the evening, Frederick R. Coudert.
Mr. Coudert made a short speech in which
he said he favored partisanship but wished
it to be understood that the Democratic
party was In the majority and should rule.
He then Introduced Senator Hill, who
received an ovation lasting several min
utes. When the cheering and band-elap-ping
'hail subsided sufficiently to allow
his voice to be heard. Senator Hill began
Senator Hill In opening his address paid
his respects to Senator Miller and the Re
publican party. He traced Us history
In its -various national platforms. He
claimed that the party had been equally
inconsistent In btate affairs.
"It has declared In a general way for
local self-government, and then Its legis
lation lias centered power at Albany.
I: lias been for home rule for cities and
then against it usually against it. It
has advocated non-partisan municipal ad
ministration In Democratic citiesand main
tained partisan ones In Republican
In speaking of the tariff he said. "The
la riff bill enacted in 1 894 by the Democratic
party went into effect on August 2S, 1694.
and thus has been In operatiouonly a little
rear. That time-has not been
ample to determine lis value and useful
ness. It is to be regretted that it has not
met Hie full expectations or Us friends In
realizing sufficient revenues to prevent
deficiencies, but this consolation exists,
that even It thercunust be some deficiencies
for a brief period, there-has been no unnec
essary and extravagant, taxation Imposed
under Its provisions.
. "No new tariff Iawcan demonstrate its
capacity within a sirgle year's trials and
no sensible man should expect otherwise.
Thedlfflculty is that the country has not yet
recovered from the far reaching injurious
effects or the terrible panic of IS93, caused
by tbc Republican Sherman silver act of
1890, passed by Republicans over the votp
of every Democrat in Congress.
"This fact, however, cannot escape obser
vation, and thatls, that the moment theMc
Kinley law was repealed and the new tariff
law enacted August 2S, 1894 the times
began to improve, and have continued t
improve ever since slowly it may be, but
surely, safely and satisfactorily.
"The national Democratic administration
is giving to the country a well administered
government. The various departments are
being Iioncslly, economically and wisely
conducted. No scandals have disgrace!
them, no irregularities have occurred; no
abuses of power have been tolerated, no
extreme partisanship has characterized
them. With honor, dignity and diligence
they are dicharglng their duties as public
trusts ror the weirare of the whole people."
In siieaklng of the "personal liberty" Is
sue, he said: "The Democratic party has
always been the consistent champion of
pcrspual liberty. It will not chance Its at
titude by reason of misrepresentations or
the threats or the boasts of Puritanism.
"The Democrats, tn the revision of
1892, did not change the Sunday prer
viilcins of 1837, but left them as the Re
publicans originally enacted them save
and except that they liberalized those
provltions In one Important particular.
"But thenew police commit sIonccsorNcw
York, Immediately npon-their ai sumption
of their offlccf. adopted a strict, narrow
and arbitrary Interpretation of tliete Sun
day laws, and vociferously and ostenta
tloutly proclaimed that they were to bo
relentletsly enforced. In that spirit they
opened their warfare upon the citizens of
New York and arouted a spirit of in
dignation on the part of all decent men,
which only awaits an opportunity to ex
prets itseir at the ballot box."
When the Senator bad concluded his
speech he announced that he was going
out to Ohio to give his services to Governor
Campbell in the latter's campaign. He
will remain In Ohio three or four days
