The Weather To-day.
Fair; slightly cooler: variable winds.
THEKOONAND THE COMMISSIONERS.
The CommfeetoDors of the District of Co
lumbia have wisely decided that the moon is
an inconstant quantity, better fitted to shed a
soft sheen over lovers on park seats than to
light the pedestrian homeward on his weary
way. And so, paraphrasing Borneo, they

Heretofore the honorable triumvirate that
untanpiofi our municipal snarls has sworn by
the moon and saved gas. But the moon was
fickle. She would not play her scheduled en
gagements. On the least provocation she
would soeare a physician's certificate and
stay away. The almanac managers have long
"been used to this sort of thing, but it was
new to the Commissioners, and it took some
time for them to make up their minds to dis
pense with the services of the celestial prima
In fact, the moon seemed to stand in with
footpads and highwaymen. At 4. o'clock in
the afternoon ebe would seem in perfect
health and would give every indication of her
appearance as per the almanac advance no
tices. The Honorable Commissioners would
then order no sas, Rnd go home in company
with a large economical feeling.
But, oh, what a difference in the evening!
The moon promptly got behind some cloud"!,
the footpads got behind some tree, and the
pedestrian got behind a week's wages.
The astronomers will now be vindicated in
discovering a green haze on the moon. The
Commissioners have jilted her and she is
PRECEDENT TOE POLICY SHARKS.
The ease of William A. norbaeh will stand
as a valuable precedent to the smooth gentle
men who wish to conduct policy gambling in
this city, but who are afraid of the rigorous
laws which apply to such business onter-
Mr. Horbach has been repeatedly identified
as a backer of the policy game, and he has
repeatedly paid fines and promised to abstain
from holding out the seductive inducements
of 411 H and other "gigs." Nevertheless,
Mr. Horbach walked into the police court
Saturday of his own accord and got off with
a fine of $160.
Prosecuting Attorney Mullowney was oither
charmed wtth the theatric self-rendition of
Mr. Horbach. or really believed that "some
business men had interested themselvos in
him" and would see that he got a chance to
engage in honorable pursuits. At any rate, it
was recommended to Judge Miller that tho
prisoner be sot free on the payment of a fine.
Judge Miller was surprised and reluctantly
followed the recommendation. No wonder.
The respectable citizens of "Washington aro
also surprised, and would prefer a little more
law and a little less leniency in the prosecution
of repeated -violations of the gambling laws.
A MUNICIPAL INCONSISTENCY.
In another column is published this morn
ing the remarkable result of an investigation
which The Timbb has made regarding the
street location of electric wires in the District
It is shown that the Commissioners are ob
liged to violate one of the laws which they
are required to enforce, and yet kcop a close
watch for any other violators of the same
This anomalous situation is the direct re
sult of some brilliant legislating engineered
in the two Congressional committees on the
District of Columbia. Upon the reassembling
of Congress The Times will do its part in agi
tating for the correction of the absurd diffi
culty. Not only is it a municipal disgrace
that the city should be obliged to violate its
own laws (or rather the laws that are made
for ft), but It is a humiliation that the Com
missioners should be forced to beg favors for
the District from the corporations.
The case is parallel to a recent situation in
the Treasury Department. Secretary Foster
issued a strictly prohibitive order against tho
sale of intoxicants in Alaska. About a year
after It was found that a revenue officer of
the Treasury Department was still in that
territory ooWeeting the regular internal reve
nue tax. The collector was discharged.

"And so, just as tho politicians sometimes
lead the President ardund by the nose, they
forced the King by his own decree to put
Daniel in the lion's den.
"When they put Daniel into tho pit tho King
said: "Daniel, call ujon thy God, He will

OUR WILL IS OUR OWN.
Rev. Dr. Stafford's Sermon Under the Aus
pices of the Sodality of St. Patrick's.
Thero was a large congregation of devout
worshipers at Sr Patrick's Church at the 11
o'elock mass yesterday.
An interesting sermon was delivered by tho
Rev. Dr. D. J. Stafford, assistant pastor of tho
church, under tho auspices of the sodality.
Dr. Stafford's sermon was specially dedi
cated to the Holy Mother, and ho made an
eloquent and graceful plea for purity of lifo
and consecration to tho work of the Divino
"There is ono thing God cannot take from
us," 6ald tho reverend father, "and that is our
will. If we give it to Him, Ho accepts it; if
we withhold it, He respects our freedom. Ho
created us free, and free we are.
"When advised of the great mission she was
expected to fulfill Marv hesitated, and God
respected her liberty. But sho finally yielded
obedience. Sho was absolutely free from the
taint of original sin. No other person can
take up her work. Under the providence of
God her position was unique, and no other
creature cau succeed to it.
"God's name is incommunicable, and He
alone can bear it no other can share it. To
one of His creatures only an Jncommunicablo
name was givenu which no other can bear nor
share that given to Mary, tho virgin mother,
or mother of God."
The learned clergyman's closing words
comprised an earnest and eloquent invocation
for tho favor of God and tho blessings "of the
Church's beautiful, immaculate queen."
Tho service was a "Missa Cantata;" cele

of the church. The musical programme was

THE CHURCH FOR THE TIMES.
Key. J. Russell Vcrbcyckc Tells His People
Whnt Its essentials .Must Be.
"And unto tho nngol of tho church in
Smyrna write" was tho text from which Rev.
J. Russoll Yerboycke, of Gurley- Memorial
Church, took his thomo yestorday morning.
It was "Tho Church for tho times," and tho
largo audienco listened attentively to tho les
sons drawn from tho account by St. John of
tho second Asiatic church.
"It is to tho Hvo, act! vo Christian in Smyrna
that I would call your attention.'' said'Mr.
Ycrboycko. "rather than to tho literal words
of the toxt. It was a living church, full of
vital power and energy. Its poopio woro
undismayed by flro or oiirthquako, or other
calamities; but after each, seemed to riso with
now vigor to do a greater work.
"So to-day thero are live churches and
dead churches; tho ono class filled with tho
power of the lively spirit, the other a more
lifeless existenco. Tho church" of tho times
must bo a Jiving church; not only up to, but
'in advance of tho times. I do not mean with
new forms or worship or novel articles of be
lief, but pre-eminently pure and faithful in
doctriuo and full of energy.
"Wo find there aro to-day churches for tho
rich, where tho poor are not wanted and daro
hardly go. And thero aro Salvation Army
barracks and mission churches for tho Door,
where the rich do not deign to Haunt their
line clothing The church for the times must
ignoro this casto and class feeling and preach
u pure Gospel and havo a warm welcome for
rich and poor alike.
"Tko church for tho times must bo a har
monious church. Too often churches aro
only tho rings whore family and neighbor
hood feuds aro fought to a Dnish. No out
pouring of tho spirit can como to a church of
"Tho church for tho times must havo ox
tornal beauty as well as inward grace. The
idea has been exploded long ago that 'becuuso
Christ ivas born in a tnnngor it is lilting that
God suould bo worshiped in a barn.' Then,
too, satan is so busy gilding tho palaces of
siu. that tho churches must bo reuderod at
tractive to eyo and ear.
"An attractive service is another essential.
Good music, led by a good organ and choir,
not monopo'ized by them. A service which
tho congregation can enjoy because it can
take part. Many a sinner has been won for
Christ by tho power of music, sol think that
is if poor economy to economize in music
"It must bo a working church, with its
business affairs conducted by business men,
so consecrnted that they will bo as faithful in
tho business of tho church as in their own
business. Aud with this activo, consecrated
working official board, tho members must
also bo active, consecrated work
"And above nil, it must bo a soul-saving
church ono whoso people will go out int,o
the blghwnys and byways and hedges and
bring the sinners in to sit at meat at tho
Lord's table. Thero aro many other things,
but these aro tho essentials to' the church lor
tho times. So let us work a little harder and
pray with greater constancy and faith that
this church may be a veritable gateway to
heaven for many sinners in our city."
ON THE EVE OF A NEW YEAR.
Beautiful Prayer and Song Scrylco at the
Tho opening services of Rosh Hashana
were hold last night at tho synagogue of tho
Washington Hebrew Congregation, on Eighth
street, between II and I streets. The hand
some edifice was crowded to its fullest cap
pacity. Rabbi St ern preached no sermon, as that
phase of tho New Year celebration will be at
9:30 o'clock this morning, but tho service was
solemn and impressive. Tho special evening
ritual was sung by a choir of llfteen voices,
led by a quartet, consisting of Miss Mao
Whitesell. soprano; Mrs. Martin, nlto; Mr.
MacFarlnnd, tenor, and Mr. Nolan, basso. Dr.
W. G. Walter was tho organist.
Tho prelude to tho service was by Kitzlger.
Guilmant's beautiful hymn, "From Thy
Throno." was sung, nnd tho ancient "Adou
Olone, or "Sovereign Lord," which doubt
loss was sung by tho sons of Irnel in tho
temple on the Holy Mount, marked the close
of the servlco. Tho arrangement was by
Rabbi Stern departed somewhat from tho
ritual boforo tho "Adon Olone" by offering an
extemporaneous prayer. His languago was
simple but majestic, as in well-rounded
Eoriods he implored tho divino blessing upon
is people, upon this city, nnd upon tho na
tion in this now year 5G55. His words of
thanks and praise for tho bl ssing3 of tho
past wero not less eloquent.
Services will be hold to-day at 9:30 a. m.,
when a sermon will be preached, nnd tho
blowing of tho trumpet will herald the new
year nnd call tho children of Israel to re
pentance. At Adas Israel Orthodox Synagogue, cor
ner of Sixth and G streets, the initiatory new
year service was held at G o'clock. Mr. Isa
dora Samuels chanted tho ritual and read tho
prayers of tho simple evening service, which
diners widely from that of tho reformed con
gregation. Services will be hold to-day at 7
a, m., lasting until about noon; nt 4 p. m.,
and at G p. m. Two additional services will
bo held to-morrow.

FAREWELL TO HIS FLOCK.
Rev. William F. Doty Will Leave To-day

Rov. William F. Doty, who has for a num

Faith .Presbyterian Church, on M stroot

Sixth streets, preached his farewell sormon
before a large audienco last night, and will

Mr. Doty has taken an activo interest in tho
affairs in the Christian Endeavor Society of

evening Miss Estella Foster, in behalf of tho
society, presented him with a copy of tho
Homiletio Encyclopedia in token of tho
members' appreciation of bis faithful serv

Johnson's Good LUck.
A True Story of the Present
"Hollo, Johnson; glad to soo you back.
Hopo you huvo entirely recovered your
"Thank you; but I havo not. Candidly, I
foel worse than I did when I wont away. Tho
doctor told me I needed absolute rest for
awhile, and I took two weeks, which was as
long as I could afford to stay away from my
desk. It did mo no good. I have como back
totally unfit for work, and am terribly dis
couarged and wretched."
"Nonsonse, old man; don't givo way to
such thoughts. All you need is a llttlo moro
pluck. Shall I see you at tho club this even
ing? No! Well, I'll seo you to-morrow,
then. Good day."
Tho above conversation took placo in the
rotunda of Willnrd's Hotel. As Johnson's
friend walked away, in company with a chum,
"Poor Johnson! Did you over soo such a
change in a man? Ho looks ten years older
than ho did a year ago. I fear he is not long
for this world."
In the meantimo Johnson, who had not
moved from tho hotel chair In which h was
sitting, was aroused from tho gloomy reverie
into which ho hud fallon by hearing himself
"I beg pardon, sir, but I accidentally over
heard the conversation between you ana
your friend just now. I don't want to be im
pertinent, but I know that I can be of service
A. hnndbomo, well-dressed man of fine
physique and tho unmistakable bearing of a
gentleman had sat down beside him. Before
Johnson, in his surprise, could speak, tho
man wont on:
'I heard what you'said about tho condition
of your health, and I at onco rocognizod the
nature of your trouble. As 1 said before, I
know that I can bo of sorvico to yon. I trust
you will lot that bo my apology for speaking"
"You'ro a doctor, I suppose," said John
"Not at all," laughed tho stranger, as ho
produced his card. "I am a New York
broker, nnd my name, as you see, is D. B.
Rndraus. Your case interests mo simply bo
causo I was once in tho samo condition that
you aro now oniy worse."
"You!" Johnson straightened up and
looked incrcdulouslyat tho magnificent phys
ical proportions of tho man.
"Yes," said Mr. Radmus; "two years ago I
was a physical and mental wreck. Overwork
nnd anxiety over business affairs completed
tho work of breaking down my nervous sys
tem, which I prosumo had been previously
weakened by my irregular habits and ox
cesses. My strength and energy loft me; I be
came weak and languid, with a worn out
feeling that I was unable to overcome. I lost
confidence in myself, had gloomy forebod
ings, hated company, was wakeful at night and
roso unrefreshod In the morning. My mem
ory and all my special senses wero deranged;
I shrank from all physical or mental effort,
"became palo and emaciated, and was tor
tured by dyspepsia and neuralgia. My doc
tor advised rest and change of air, but, al
though I took a threo months' vacation, it
did not benefit mo. At last, however, I met
a man who told mo how I could be cured."
By this time Johnson was listening with
tho deepest interest.
"This man told mo of some wonderful
cures that had been performed by Dr. R. A.
Walker, tho European specialist, in the treat
ment of diseases of the brain and nervous
system. He gavo mo Dr. Walker's address,
and I wrote to him. It was a most fortunate
circumstance for mo, for I am suro that I
could not hnve lived much longer. As a re
sult of Dr. Walker's treatment, which, by tho
way, was entirely by correspondence, I got
better right away. My nerves grow as strong
and steady as Iron, and my mind, which I had
feared was wrecked, became clear, bright,
and happy. I was soon in better health than
1 had over been beforo; in fact, as you seo mo
now. strong and sound and vigorous."
'"Fortunntely for you." continued Mr. Rad
mus, "this samo Dr. Walker is now located in
Washington, nnd you can consult him per
sonally. Indeod, his rooms are next door to
this hotel, nt No. 1411 Pennsylvania avenue,
and I f-eo that his oflice hours are from 10 a.
m. to 5 p. in. Ho charges nothing for con
sultation, nnd I advise you to see him at onco
ubout your case."
Johnson did so. This was five days ago.
and tho young man is already on the high
road to completo recovery. His step is be
coming dally moro buoyant, his mind clearer,
and his genera' health better, and he has ro
sumed his interest in life, ne regards his
meeting with Mr. Radmus, of New York, as a
very fortunate circumstance.
Many men are sufferers from norvous ex
haustion, nervous dobility, impaired memory,
low spirits, irritable temper, nnd tho
thousand and ono derangements of mind and
body that reiult from unnatural, pernicious
habits contracted in youth through ignorance,
or from later oxcesses, culminating in a loss
of manly power, wrecked constitutions, and
not infrequently In softening of the brain, epi
lepsy, paralysis, or insnnity. To rench ncd
reclaim such cases Is ono'of Dr. Walker's
aims, and hundreds of unfortunates have,
through him. been restored to health and hap
piness. Dr. Waikpr's charges in all cases are
reasonable and within tho reach of all.
