filled thopiilpit at All Souls' Church, curner
of Fourteenth and L streets, jestcr.lay
and the services liotli iimrning and evinlng
were attended by large cougregalions.
Uev. Dr. Sprague Is an eloquent, logical
n.,.inri.iitnrntatlrpsoiaktr. whose nnguage
carries with it the force of the convictions
which prompts It.
His text lJst evening was taken rrom
Mitthew, xxvl.r,7. "He hath tpoVcn
blasphemy: wliat, therefore, need wrh.lve
of witnesses," and his sublet. "Classes
and kinds of Atheists and Atheism."
There arc people, even today, he said, who
would undertake to say where God is
and where lie Is not. Some contend that
He is rar away and that He only remained
on earth long enough to make the world
ami linn relumed to a world e.f His own.
Others co'itmd that He Isappinnt In all
the forces of nature but Is not a part and
parcel of the soul of man, while there are
others who maintain the re-verse.
Thelsls teach that God Is the essence
of love, beauty, justice, intellect, force,
energy, and righteousness, but religion
tenches that God is that He Is the em
lKKllmcnl of all that moves and has being
and that has or ever will lie.
Kev. Dr. Sprague will remain In the

the tyiitiuiilng sue cess or the undertaking.
Nothing could be simpler or ct moro

Around the front of the stage
were jardinieres fllle'd with white and

Tlio special souvenir progrninmt s which

one hundred years, nnd also the mimes of
all the pastors or this church from 10!

of the antique, one being tho little

carpenters and builders who were work

Dr Sunderland's sermon was termed a
centennial dlscoarse It was rich aud In-
lere-sliug and told well, and nt times with
great force and pathos M iny of the con
gregation wept at certain passages. The
very appropriate text was Ps.ilui 87.3
Glirious things arc spoken of thee, arity
of God "
"This city," he beiran, "Is the heart of
the world, as It Is with the great capitals
of all uallons Piety and latrlotlsni for-orc-r
liud their seat of government, lioth in
church and state. It Is so with us loduy,

Dr. bundrrUnil spoke here of Washlng

WASHINGTON" IN" 1703.
Dr Siirderlaud then drew a charming
picture of the lamlscape from Capitol Hill
in 17'J5 and an equally .lnlmaltil picture
of the ln re-asing life of the capital. He
traced the original Presbyte-rlans of Wash
ington to the churches of M.ik.imie, the
sjnodot which wasorganlzed in 1788. The
local Pre-bjlcrians obtained tho use of
the carp.-nter shop at the White House.
Then they went to a frame building ou F
street, near the corner of Tenth street
In leOll the Covenanters withdrew and
organized the F street church, their
pastor being tl"' Kev. Dr. James Lowrie.
This bfiildlng is now known as Willard's
H.tll. Tlio rest of the congregation suhse
(lueiitly moved to the "Academy Hast,"
neartbeXavv rard.wherethej worshipped
in the Capitol, and later on the church of
loll! was dedicated, the first spadeful of
earth lwlng rcmovcil by John Coyle, one of
tlio first elders. The church organization
w as perfected in 1 61 1, as the Firt Presby
terian Church, with Kev. John Bracke-n-rielge
as pastor. In 127 the present build
ing, enlarged lnrlG, was built, the
dedication sermon being by Kev. Dr.
Gnrde-ncrsprlng of Xcw York. The church
was renovated in lfet'2,thepr sent building
being the result.
GENF.SI.S OF PKF.SBYT1:RI.VXISM.
Dr. Sunderland next spoke of the genesis
of Pre-lmerian!sn!, nnd its Republicanism
being the basis of the American Protestant
Church. The rirst Presbytery was form
ed In Philadelphia in 1705, the first s-nod
In 1710. He next elaborated the effect tho
slavery question had ou the councils of the
church, until It ended In the secession In
1S.-.7 of the Soutl era from the Northern
Church, the Presbvtcry of the Fob mac ad
hering to the Xorthe rn w nig.
it.. n..tt Riinko of the effect of the local
church on tho growth of the city, Presby
tcriauism has Ix-on charges! llh holding the
most repugnant Mews and yet no church
has been practically more Tree or broad
or liberal. It needs not the pity or charity
of posterity. It has stood for the Bible,
for the divine sovereignty and human ac
countability, for the covenant of grace,
executed by Christ, for the Christian Sali
li'ath, for the parity of the clergy, for the
right and necessity of universal education:
for free Investigation, free speech and
private judgment, individual conscience, the
llbertv of the press, purity In politics and
public morals, reformation of human society
The closing part of the sermon was a
graphic contrast of the early with the
present life of the republic and the many
chan-es It and Its national neighbors have
undergone. He referred eomplimentarily to
D r. Talmage and the new era for the church
Ihu': , , , . .
"It seems to mc like a vision let down
from heaven to cheer us as we close the
present century and enter on the vast
career or the years. It is to me persomlly
tbe final sunburst of my evening sky and
I feel like saying with Simon: 'Lord, no,v
lettest thy servant nep ire m -leu-.---, mi .u.o.

This evening the subject will be "Prcs

being Rev. Charles L. Thompson, D. !.,

THC two characteristic fu
tures that have given tho
Ivers & Pond l'lano Its
enviable position In the piano
world are the beauty of its tons
and Its remarkable durability.
Tone quality, the adaptability to
express musical thought, Is the
distinguishing feature between the
artistic and the commercial piano.
The richness, the purity, the In
finite shades of expression In the
Ivers & Poml tone attract and
fascinate musicians the world over.
Combine with this the absolute
evenness of scale, crip, re
sponsive action, and simple ele
gance of design and finish, and
the reasons for the popularity of
the Ivors & Poml Piano are
as plain as day.
