"NEARER, MY GOD,"
Cardinal Gibbons Comments on
Subject at St. Stephen's
In praotjcally every church of Wash
ington clergymen and congregations to
day held commemorative services for
the victims of the Titanic.
, Prayers were offere for the souls of
the departed and from a hundred pul
I pits preachers commented on the dis
aster and the bravery of the Washing
ton men who lost their lives a week ago.
It -was a day of church going for
i President Taft, who attende St. Paul's
Episcopal Church at 9 o'clock, and
AH Souls' Unitarian Church at 11
o'clock, and announced his intention to
attend a third service at St. John's
Church this afternoon. At the nrst of
these In particular the memorial scr
I iee related to the death of Major Butt,
who was an attendant there.
In another pulpit Cardinal Gibbons
commented on the disaster, the prelate
6peaklng at St. Stephen's Church, where
he confirmed a largo class.
At St. Paul's, Prcaldent Taft arrived
flvo minutes before the service began,
'Mrs. Taft accompanying him. Secre
'tarles MacVcagh and Stlmson entered
a few minutes later. Many members of
the diplomatic service were also in the
Just before the rector, the Rev. Frank
Talbot, entered the pulpit Hymn No. 301
was announced. This Is. "Near, My
Ood, to Thee," and the singing of this
nymn, which the Tltanlc's bandsmen
played as the ship sank, moved every
ono In tho church. All present Jolndd
with the choir.
Church Militant Prayer.
Unusually significant too seemed the
words of the "Prayer for the church
militant," which says:
"And we also bless The Holy Name
for all Thy servants departed this life
In Thy faith and fear, beseeching Thee
to give us grace so to follow their good
examples that with them wo may be
partakers of Thy heavenly kingdom."
The universal text today was the
words "Greater love hath no man' thnn
that he lay down hln life for his broth
"It Is not my purpose," said tno
Rev. Mr. Talbot, "to dwell at length
this morning on the life, character and
i death of the gallant soldier who sacrl
ced his life for his brother man. This
'is not the place to speak nor to listen
toi human words, though we are here
together in this little church where our
beloved friend was accustomed, as he
said, to slip in from time to time, to
attend early communion servtce with
which his duties did not interfere. But
i we are here to listen to the words of
that Man of Nazareth who centuries
n$o died that man might live."
The Ttev. Mr. Talbot went on to in
dorse the proposition that a monument
be erected here In the National Caoltnl
1 1 commemorate the death of the Tl
I tanlc's victims.
"After all," he said. In concluding his
iermon, "length of days does not count
I anion. It seems to me had our de-
I cased friend lived to a ripe old ace.
i hia influence for bravery and for nn
I fcjllty of character In others could not
have been greater than It Is todav.
His name and his valiant death will be
treasured up in song and storv for
I centuries to come."
President Taft was accompanied bv
Secretary HUles to All Bouls' Church
1 which was crowded at the 11 oYlrwif
I eerylce. Mr. and Mrs. John Hays Ham
! mond were in a pew near the President.
and various members of the House and
1 Senate were also at this service.
Nation's Flag Draped.
As In many other churches today, the
American flag draped with crepe was In
evidence, and floral tributes were nu
merous. The Rev. U. G. B. Pierce, pas
tor of the church, preached a sermon
on "Faith." Mr. Pierce referred lem
specifically to the Titanic disaster than
did many other pastors. He said:
"Thl3 Is a memorial service, but dur
ing the past week our hearts have bw
so taxed we have been strained with so
mapy and so contrary emotions that
the virtue of this service must be the
virtue of self-restraint. We have heard
enough. We have felt too much, and
we are here now to drink anew at th
fountain of life and to fan Into flame
the flickering torch of our faith. We
need strength today In the face of this
In a prayer before the sermon Mr
Pierce said: "Thou has seen fit, oh!
God, to visit us with this terrible af
fliction. Give us grace to say it Is well
because God hath done It."
Masses of Requiem.
In nearly all the Catholic churches of
the city announcements were made of
requiem masses to bo sung tomorrow
or Tuesday, and there was no pastor or
visiting priest preaching today who did
not speak of the Titanic and of the
heroism of the men who died. Practi
cally all called attention to the fact that
tho self-sacrlflce was general, even
though some figures stood forth particu
larly. The prayers of the congregations were
asked for the souls of the departed and
these prayers were said with a fervor
and an earnestness which betokened

"The Hand of God In Affliction," and

The clothing and furnishings store of
K. Goldsmith, King and Leo streets,
was entered early this morning. The
thief calmly outfitted himself from head
to foot, selected several other suits of
clothes, three pairs of shoes, a set of
gold cuff buttons, besides a quantity of
mlscellencous men's wear, and then
took his departure through a side door.
In tho rear of tho store a largq travel
ing case had been opened, apparently
to be used In carrying away some of the
stuff. Tho thief ate a quart of peanuts
during his stay, the shells being found
on the floor.
This Is the Bccond time this store has
been robbed within a year. Tho total
value of the goods taken this time Is
between $60 and $76.
