The congregation of Calvary Baptist
Church held Sunday service for the' last
time vesterdav In the Sundai-school room,
at least for a lung time to come.
The main building of the. church has Tor

and elaborate nnprovctnents which Inter
rupted lor tne time worsuip iu iuc cuutvu
proper. These have been completed anu
on next Sunday the congregation will re
sume worship in their uanusomo anu prac
tically new eunice.
The improvements have been expensive as
well as extensive, and the once plain au
ditorium of the church has been transformed
into a really beautiful place of worship.
The entrance has been, remodeled and Un
proved aud on either side, wmiin, stair
ways rise to the grand auditorium. Over
the chancel has been placed a magulficent
new organ, which cost $0,230.
On enterlug the auditorium the organ
and the new pulpit, standing out conspicu
ously, at mite attract attention. Tbenul
pit is -slightly raised above the floor aud
Is burnished with lour handsomely carved
oak chairs, destined fur the accommodation
of vHltlng clergy.
COSTLY BAPTISMAL FONT.
Perhaps, though, the handsomest feature
ot the new ornamentation is the beautiful
Sienna marble baplinn.i! ont, which has
been constructed in the middle of the pulpit.
Connected with the baptistry are robing

The Ulterior ot the church has been fres
coed, and decorated, commodious galleries
have beeu built and the seating cajucity
more limn doubled. The old pewa ha,e
been replaced bjinew aud comfortable ones
of carved oak.
After the morning service yesterday the

for the first lime since It has neared com
pletion. The Inspection was a pleasure
aud a turprise, for it was found to be hand
somer thau described and the gratification
they felt in having had some part in this
beautiful work was plainly dlscernable In
The services wereconducted by thepastor,
Rev. Samuel II. Green, and the sermon was
by Rev.T. A. Chambers, pastor of the First
itnnrut. Phiireh. Saratoga. X. Y. His dis
course was eloquent, argumentative, and
scholarly, and was an earnest appeal for
man to reform and conform to the will of
Uev. Mr. Chambers took his text flfty
sliati Psalm, part ot the tweirth verse, "Thy
vows are upon me, 0 God, I will render
thank offerings to Thee." In discussing
his text he likened the life of the true
Christian to that or tne tnigncsor oiu, wuo
sacrificed their all In defense ot the faith
and their vows. Those were the days, he
said, when men were tried and proven be
fore they had the honor of knights conferred
upon them, and thcu It was that they laid
their swords upon the altar and swore
fidelity and ralth.
He had made his vows aud there was
no faltering, he faced and preferred death
Itself to the slightest deviation from the
teachings of the Master.
Bo il should be w4th all good Christians,
they should face the battle for Christ aud
welcome death rather than deviate from

be a hard word, bat It Is ueverthcles.true.
There Is no doubt what our course should
be, for Christ demands Christian love.
We caunot be Christians mid idolize self or
pander to' the wants of the -world, for
If any man love the world the love of, the
Father Is not I nlilm. Nor Is It he who
respects the Father In name only, but he
who doeth the -will and bends all In all
to the comraauds of Christ, who responds
to the will ot the Lord.
Man, he said. Is afraid to come face to
face -with God because he has not been
actively ergaged In serving Christ. These
arc the despised bofli by God and man.
We are too apt to lorget our 'religion

of Congress, Is reviving the Interest In the
many items of District legislation, and es
pecially are thedesired public buildings kept

the early future resin-cling District nceds.lt
Is believixl to be reasonably sure that the
statesmen at the Capitol will, at the next
beksion, provide for the construction of three
public buildings, the Government Printing
Office, a new Patent Office, ami tne mu
nicipal building and courthouse. There Is,

pediment to the pasagi' of the bills.
For the municipal bullijlng the Com
missioners have renewed to the Secretary
of the Treabury their estimate of last
year for appropriation or $100,000, and
as it then passed through to Congress
with Mr. Carlisle's indorsement. It is
not believed there will be any objection
unontilipart tothe present recommendation.
It will have the unanimous indorsement,
it is understoodnof the Board of Trade
and other strong organized influence.
JUST THE BEGINNING.
This sum of $100,000 will not com
plete the building, as Is well known,
but ltwill be the nucleus, if approved by
Congrs, of an aggregate that is exacted
to provide a structure capabe of accom
modating the offices of the entire District
government and all of the local courts.
With respect to the other two buildings
it may be said that every possible in
fluence will be brought to bear iu their
favor, and au equally strong influence
to prevent real estate speculatioiyi from
entering into the Consideration of either.
Several members of both Houses of Con
gress, whose position In the leglslatlc
couucIH will iu the very nature of things
be prominent, are known to bo throrougldy
iu sympathy with the effort to secure the.
three buildings named, and are determined
that conflicting- Interests shall not inter
fere. Their prouounced interest iu the
matter Is accepted as a guarantee of
systematized, disinterested efrort.
i!p,Mit discussion of these projects has
revived the question ot location for the
structures." The latest idea advanced is In
line with the suggestion made to The
Times nearly a jear ago by a gentleman,
who, until recently,- held a prominent
local position under the United States gov
The plan proposed is to place the new
buildings on the 6outh side" of Pennsyl
vania avenue In the vicinity of the new
'ALONG PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE.
This, it is said. Is advocated by nut a
few, tbcobject being to dl-plac by so much
the old-time structures with handsome
government buildings, and thus lay the
frtnn.int.,n for the gradual auiironriatlon
of the 6outh side territory from the Peace
Monument to the Treasury ror government
This, it is argued, will concentrate the
government business and at the same time
line the Pennsylvania avenue of the future
with a class of buildings that will be in
every sens a credit to ihc Capital, the idea
being that all future government buildings
would be naturally placed there.
There Is, however, another class whose
views are that thebul'dlngs should beplaced
on ground already owned and occupied by
thc government. These believe the munic
ipal building should occupy the site of the
present city hall. In Judiciary bquare, auu
that equally desirable locations can and
should be obtained for any other govern
ment structure now In view.
There Beems to be great unanimity upon
the main Issue, that of Becurlng the appro
