ner. WAY THEY ARE SUPPORTED.
Mrs. Hackley supports the Archbald,
West Side, Adams avenue chapel and
Illdge schools; Simpson & Watkins the
Northwest school, the Central Kinder
garten, training school and. Jewluh
synagogue school are' maintained by
the association and about all of them
owe their creation to the association.
As Indicated by President Holland,
who presided, the well-to-do city
churches, excepting St. Luke's Episco
pal church, the Jewish synagogue and
the Second Presbyterian church, have
done nothing toward aiding the work,
although the promoters had expected
long ago that the more prominent
churches would at least tender tho use
of school rooms If nothing rriore. St.
Luke's Episcopal church was not only
among the first to realize the value of
the kindergarten as an Ideal charttcter
bullder for the young, but it has estab
lished and conducts several Independ
ent kindergarten schools. The Jewish
people give the use of a school room In
the synagogue on Linden street and are
by subscription and by Individual aid
among the most hearty supporters of
the association. The Second Presby
terian church gave the use of Its Ad
ams avenue chapel.
The paper of Miss Underwood was
quite an exhaustive one and reviewed
the work of all the schools. It revealed
the cosmopolitan and In many cases
non-English speaking elements reached
by tho kindergartens and their influ
ence for good npt only upon little chil
dren, but through them to their pa
rents. Tho six schools operated by
the association had an average dally
attendance of 244 during the year.
The assembly hall wherein tho meet
ing was held was splendidly decorated
with cut and potted flowers and con
tained an Interesting display of the
work ot kindergarten pupils;
Addressed by Mr. Crlitenton.
Charles N. Crlttenton addressed the
Pastors' union at their meeting In
Young Men's Christian association hall
yesterday morning. He urged their co-
operation In the work he l engaged Iri
here. The union will not hold another
meeting until September.

CALLED FINN A LIAR.
Select Councilman C P. Wagner Pays
Ills Respects to the Member
from tbe Second.
There wns an exceedingly lively tilt
at last night's meeting of the auditing
committtee between C. F. Wagner, the
select councilman from tho Tenth ward
and AVade Finn, the smooth-tongued
senator from the Second. The trouble
nro3o over an article that appeared In'
Saturdays Republican purporting to
b a report of a caucus held by the
Republican select councllmen in the
county commissioners' ofllce last
Thursday night. The report in ques
tion contained a malicious attack on
Colonel E. H. Ripple.
Mr. Wagner charged Mr. Finn with
having Inspired the article which ho
said was a gross perversion ot the
truth. Not only had he (Finn) vio
lated confidence by disclosing what
had been decided upon at the caucus
but to gratify a personal spite ho had
Invented falsehoods and supplemented
them with a gross distortion of tho
This drew forth a spirited denial
from Finn who had become much ex
cited under Wagner's scathing denun
ciation of his conduct. In his dilem
ma Finn said that If anyone Inspired
the article In question It was Wagner
and that the latter displayed a good
deal of nerve In accusing him, ond
Wade actually looked offended. This
was so droll that the committee men
laughed and Morgan Sweeney almost
fell out of his chair.
"You're a liar" was the prompt reply
of Wagner when Finn hud finished his
protest and he added that the ability
of the gentleman from the Second to
pervert the truth amounted to a posi
Thl3 Finn denleJ, more harsh words
followed on both sldos and then mem
bers of the committee Interfered and
peace wa restored for the time being.
The auditing committee passed upon
a number of bills, among them some
for the Twelfth ward contest. They
were In several amounts with no grand
total and were passed without ques
tion. The bill of J200 for the electric
wiring of the new Nay Aug Hose
house was laid over. It Is claim
ed that W. P. Conncll & Son, the con
tractors, have not completed tho work.
The switch which' connects tho house
clock Is Imperfect.

1'resbyterinn Church, Providence.
Charles W. Crlttenton, the evangelist,
held tho first of the series of meet
ings he Is to conduct In this city In
the Simpson Methodist Episcopal
church on the West Side last night.
Tho large auditorium was crowded. A
selection by the church choir opened
tho meeting after which a collection
for the Florence mission, of this city,
was taken up. After another selec
tion by the choir, Frank Wallace, tho
gospel singer, who accompanies Mr.
Crlttenton, rendered a selection In a
pleasing tenor voice.
The evangelist was Introduced by
Rev. J. B. Sweet, pastor of the church.
Mr. Crlttenton began by offering a
short prayer. He said that the purpose
of his speaking was to draw their at
tention 16 the message of Christ for
his brethren giving as his Inspiration
the words of Paul recorded In the
eighth chapter of the second Epistle to
tho Corinthians, first and second
verses. His talk was based upon the
words of Matthew twenty-ninth chap
ter and part of the twenty-eighth
verse: "Go work today in my vine
yard." "You will notice," said he, "the very
frequent occurrence of the word 'come'
in the Word of God. It Is found there
in nineteen hundred times. Well, this
Is the message 'come.' Everywhere. God
says come. Come all ye that are weary
and are burdened, and I will give ye
rest. 'Come, ealth the Spirit; and to
night I bring you all the blessed In
vitation to come and enjoy the ful
ness of God's mercy nnd love. He does
not confine the call to any Individual.
He wants whole families and when a
heart does receive him wholly, He en
ters Into entire possession. These
changes are sudden and full. If you
really and truly deslro God, Just ask
Him to take you. Lift up your heart
to Him In prayer and how qulclky your
burden will go and great peace will
All your soul.
RECEIVED A LETTER.
"Why ten years ago I received a
letter from a woman, who resided In
the upper portion of New York city,
which said 'Come and see me." I had
been praying for that woman for three
years, and at last the change had come.
Today that woman Is doing great good.
She lives on Long Island, and with her
husband, converted through her ef
forts, labors for the blessed Lord, who
gave her peace.
"Now, there Is no locality, no person,
no separate condition to receive this
call. It Is world-wide. For you, for
me and for all. At any time, In any
place, under nny condition. Do not
forget that you cannot separate your
self from this word. It Is everywhere
and Is above, all things else. ! remem
ber going to a place where three Sal
vation Army lassies were speaking and
I shall never forget them as they ex
horted and told tho story of redemp
tion. These three Women had been ar
rested and while In Jail they had com
posed a hymn to the tune "I am a
Child of a King" and they Joined hands
and sang this song. I will sing It to
you, but you could never have forgot
ten the moment had you been there
and heard It as I did.
'"Then if you come to God, He will
show you how to occupy your new life
and will give strength and power. Come
and then go! Go work today In my
vineyard. He will never forsake His
own. 'Lo I am with you alwayl' Lis
ten to the value placed upon souls by
God. Men do business on a monetary
basis and profits and loss are consid
ered, but God says, 'what shall It profit
a man if he gain the whole yorld, and
lose his own 60ul.'
GIVEN A CLEAN HEART.
"In going Into the 'vineyard' you re
ceive all due preparation. You are
given a clean heart and you are to go
forth with a smiling countenance and
full of Joy. I never appear before an
audience with a long face, but feeling
as I do how good God has been to me
and knowing that He Is ever with me,
I feel like singing His praises and
telling His message In a pleasant way.
"Now, you all know of the great res
urrection made possible by the death of
Christ, The Lord was resurrected and
said I will come again. Are you pre
pared to meet Him? To you, who have
received the message, I would say do
not fall to be thankful. Ask your God
to protect and defend you. Every
morning jeturn praise for your protec
tion during the night and ask for care
In the daytime.
"Give of your time means and talents.
Do every service for the Master you
can and yours will not be like unto the
boy or girl whom I will picture to you.
They live and grow In the lap of lux
ury, nothing they desire is kept from
them. All pleasure Is theirs and at
thirty, forty or so, they come to a final
ed of all. Then a retrospect Is made
and what Is there to recall, nothing?
Oh! do not turn from the message for
It Is your and you cannot avoid it and
"I was given peace of bou! over four
teen years .ago and wouldn not go back
for the world's wealth. I was a busi
ness man of success, had everything I
wanted and yet I was tired, sick and
discouraged. The thirst of Increase,
gain was upon me. I always wanted
and I got more. Then, when death
would have been welcome, the thought
came to me, 'Get God!' and I got Him
and now I want every one who has not
found this blessed peace to come and
receive. 'Come' and then go work to
day In my vineyard."
At the close of Mr. Crlttenton's talk
a short revival and prayer service was
held. Mr. Crlttenton Is a man of com
manding figure and forceful manner of
speaking. His words, charged with a
depth of Intense emotion, flow forth
seemingly without effort. They force
conviction upon you, uttered as they
are, by a sincere man and for every
point in his talk ho has a Biblical ex
cerpt which he aptly brings Into play.
His change from one line of thought to
another Is rapid though fully connected
and It is almost impossible to fitly de
scribe his real ideas until the cllm.ujc,
so terse are his expressions.
The next meeting will be held at the
Providence Methodist Episcopal church

A YOUNQ TRICK RIDER.
Gnvo nn Exhibition Ilcforo n Largo
Crowd on Lncknwnnnn Avenue.
A small boy on. a bicycle so distin
guished himself on Lackawanna, ave
nue last night that It was necessary
for the police to talk to him.
The wheelman, age about U yeaTS,
did alt sorts of things on his bicycle.
f"i fr,,rilfr fnfl( U'na in tsinrl lilrt
wheel at full speed and when passing f
Wyoming avenue he would rise and,
stand on the saddle with Ms arms out
stretched In tho air. Flying along In
this manner the trickster rode several
times from the Wyoming corner to
Franklin avenue. The streetB were
crowded with vehicles at the time.
Tho sidewalks wero lined along the
route with spectators of the reckless
youngster and his tricks. Another
trick of the young rider was to sit
across the horizontal bar of the bicy
cle, his two legs on one side and his
aims swinging In the air on the other
and the wheel traveling at a scorch
ing speed. Another trick: He would
sit on the saddle, give the wheel a
good momentum ar.d then lift his body
In the air, feet upward nnd his weight
resting en his hands clutched to the
handle bars. The youngster seemed to
dcllgh't In the presence ot tho crowd.
The crowd became so troublesome
that finally at 10.30 o'clock Patrolman
Conrad Marker stopped the boy's per
formance. Who ho Is or where he
came from In not known.
