NIGHT OF FItiiKDMEX'3 DAY.
Addressps by 10-rouiX!suHUiL.yaeli
mid Dr. Webb.
Emancipation Day was observed last
evening at tne First Baptist Church, cor
ner or Twenty-seventh stteetand Dumbar
ton avenue, with an excellently rendered
program ol putrlotic music and addresses
by ex-Congressman John II. Lynch of Mis
sissippi and Dr Frank J. Webb, of Texas,
und the leading of the proclamation of
emancipation by Miss Carrie Lewis.
The exercises were under the auspices
of the Emancipation Association of George
town and were conducted by the president,
Joseph L. Turner. The members of the
McKinley and Uobart Club were thespecial
guests of the evening and wercseatcdlu a
body In the front pews.
The first number was an organ recital
by Prof. Sandy Alexander.i(after which
the audience, led by the choir, sang ','ily
Country'' with mqph spirit and in splendid
President Tunicrlttn. presenting Hon. Mr.
Lynch to the audience referred to him as
the most highly honored, man of his race,
he having, in 188,-lneen,chosen chairman
ot the National Republican Convention,
which nominated, jjuucsG lilnine for the
Presidency of thoUiuted Suites.
Mr. Lynch's remarks, .for the most part,
were of the reniluiscout order, aud re
lated principally fi his boyhood, in slavery,
In Louisiana, and the exciting scenes of
the last days or the war in Mississippi and
his native State. ;
After telling many hiteneiting and amus
ing incidents of .the .days of reconstruc
tion, he advised the.pooplu to look seriously
to the future. Ue .recounted thu great
difficulties they hadj. overcome and the
progress ihey had made. lie told them
of the possibilities to be attained which
were before them, but assured them they
could never be gained without steadfast
perseverance. In speaking of the talk of
the colored people leaving this country he
advised them all to stay, especially the
colored people of the South. The great
majority of the white people of this
country, he said, were the friends of the
colored race. This would readily be
seen, he said, when It is remembered
that a white man signed the emancipation
proclamation, white men introduced the
fourteenth, rilteenth and sixteenth amend-,
ments to the Constitution in Congress, and
a majority of the legislatures in the States
which ratified these amendments were com
posed of white men.
Piesidcnt Turner presented Dr. Webb to
the audience as a blight example of what
energy, integrity and Intelligence will do
forthecolorediace. Dr-Webb tenor twelve
years ago, it was stated, was a bootblnck
in Texas, now a graduate of two .ollegcs,
is an honor and credit to his people.
Dr. Webb spoke on "American Citizen
Ship," and claimed that the freedom of the
colored race was written in the Declara
tion of Independence, and that its terms
were fulfilled by the sword of Washington.
In conclusion he referred to the heroism
of the colored soldiers both in the war for
American Independence and in the civil

wasread in a clear, fulj voice by Miss Lewis,
was enthusiastically applauded.

AIuhIc aud SermouH.
Tho Catholic Church commemorated yes
terday the crucifixion of Christ with la
mentations and pcnlteutial prayer. So
flowers or tapers were seen on her altars,
which were desolately bare of ornament
and shrouded hi purple, the ecclesiastical
emblem of woe. Statuary, paintings, and
even the windows were muffled with the
same u:ouriirul color.
In the early morning the "Mass ofthePre
sanctificd' was solemnized In every church
in the Catholic world. This was followed
by the Tenebrae services at night. At St.
Aloyslus Church "The Seven Last Words''
were commemorated in a service thutcom
menccd at noon und continued until 3
o'clock, In memory of the three hours
that the Christ hung in agony on the
CI03S. The choir, with orrheslra accom
paniment, sang in English Mercadantit's
"Seven Last Words,' and o Miurt sermon,
demonstraUng their meaning, was deliv
ered by Rev. Aloysius Brosnau, S. J. Ad
mission to the service was by card, and
despite its length the vast church was
not only crowded, but hundreds were un
able even to secure seats in the aisles and
were compelled to go away. The sermon
at the Tenebrae was preached by Hev.
John O'Rourke, S. J.
At St. Patrick's Church "The Seven
Last Words" were recited lait night at 7
o'clock. Merca Dante's music was sung
by the choir with an orchestral accom
paniment, and the entire church was
shrouded in gloom except for the light
which gleamed from an electric cross sus
pended over the central altar. The ser
mon was delivered by Rev. Father Mc
Gee. The day was one of mourning in churches
of the Episcopal faith. Bishop Satterlee
conducted the three hours' prayer service
held at St. Mark's Church, from 12 to 3,
and at Trinity Church at ll.oVIork an anti
communion service was solctwiUed by a
sermon upon "The Last Words," by Rev.
R. P. Williams, rector of the church.

At the Columbia yeMerdny afternoon a
few over a hair hundred people heard Mr.
Walkin Mills, the eminent ballad and ora
torio singer, In a recitar. The British am
bassador, with Lady Pauncefotc. and party
occupied one box, and In another were
Mrs. Cushmnn K. Davis and party. Mr.
Mills is a delightful singer, and the few
present felt well repaid for their presence,
although there is small congeniality in an
empty houe. He divided his program into
three parts, and artcr having sung sixteen
numbers his voice was almost if not quite
ti fresh as when he began.
Tho rirst portion was given to the more
exacting selections from grand opera and
oratorios. Nearly all were familiar to mu
sicians. They lncluded"Honor and Arms,"
from Handel's "Samson;" the exqnisite
"She Alone Charmeth My Sadness,' from
Gounod's "Queen of Shcba-," and selec
tions from Mendelssohn and Mozart, and
"Bear Me, 1'e Waves and Wind,"' by Han
