may be that he is somewhat to blame

but, anyhow, he is far from being a

THREE NEW CHURCHES
Formally Dedicated in One
Day in the Midway
A Catholic Edifice Impressive

copal House of Worship,
The Last Child of Plymouth
Congregation al Formal
Thoiuost imposing church edifice of
the midway district is St. Mark's Cath
olic church at Merriam Park, which was
dedicated yesterday morning with ap
propriate exercises. The church is
situated in the southern part of Mer
riam Park, near St. Thomas seminary,
whose professors and students have
ben largely instrumental in the erec
tion of this new sanctuary. The local
ity is an exceedingly srood one as it will
accommodate, this seminary and the
scattered Catholic population of these
midway parks. With such inducements
as the church and seminary there will
probably be a great increase of the
Catholic population in this district.
Archbishop Ireland, Arehbisliop Grace,
Key. Father J. J. Keane. rector of St.
Thomss seminary; Hon. D. M. Sullivan,
alderman, and Edward Hamiltou are
tlie lueorporators. The church is a
frame structure and is situated on Day
ton avenue and Monroe street. Its cost
is about flO.iHjo. The inside of the
structure is very attractive. The audi
ence room, which is K)ox43 foet, is fre«
from pillars and has au elliptical ceiling.
The seating capacity ot this room is 600.
The sanctuary and sacristy are of good
size. The pews are of polished oak. and
the interior woodwork and the altar are
of a mahogany finish, Father Keane,of
the Seminary, is expected to officiate at
this church for the present. The dedi
catory services were commenced yester
day at 10:30 a. m. 'lhe first exercises
were very imposing, and c .insisted in
the blessing of the church by Arch
bishop Grace. The procession which
inarched about the ehuren was headed
by twenty-four theological students.
Following' them were Archbishop
Grace and Fathers Keane, Welch,
Jacobs and Fitzgerald in their clerical
robes. Upon entering the church, which
was filled to tlie doors, the litany of the
saints was sung. This was followed by
high mass. Father Keane officiating.
The choir was composed mostly
of St. Paul parties. They were
J. H. Donahue, director; Mrs.
J. H. Donahue, organist; Mrs. J. R.
King, soprano: Miss Emily Haggarty,
alto: E. I. Donohue, tenor; J. P. Chris
topher and A. J. Nelson, baritone, and
J. F. Geltau, basso. The fust number
of the musical programme sung was
Fanner's mass. Other numbers were
"Veoni Creator?,'* Millarl: offertory.
"Salve Mundi Domino," Karst, solo
sung by Mr. Gchan.
The sermon was preached by Father
O'Gormau, professor of theology in the
St. Thomas seminary, and a man who is
considered one of tne greatest Catholic
orators of this state. His sermon was
partly historic^ud was very appropri
ate for this occasion. The speaker is a
liberal man, and he touched upon some
of the interesting subjects of the day.
In his discourse ho said:

Thisehmiu dedicated this morning
to the service of God, under the invoca
tion of tiie Evangelist St. Mark is the
nineteenth Catholic church within the
limits of the city of .St. Paul. If we
count Me eleven churches iv the city of
Minneapolis -our midway position en
titles us to be considered as the central
point iv which the twain are made one
—this is the thirtieth Catholic church
within the Twin Cities. Now the time
is uot beyond the memory of some of us,
when within these same limits there
was only one ouilding doing sprvice as
a church, and not doing exclusively
such service, the old brick school house
on Wabasha street, now gone. And it
was the only building used for that
purpose from the Mississippi to the
Rocky mountains, from the town line to
the international boundary lino north
of us. Within that vast territory less
than torty years ago. there was one
church, one bishop, three or four
priest? and a small flock ot Catholics.
A few days hence theie will be a
very solemn ceremony in the cathedral,
and there you will see the outgrowth
from that one church, that one bishop,
those few priests; the growth is summed
up anU realized before our ey^s more
vividly than statistics could tell iv the
presence of a metropolitan and five suf
fragan bishops. And those who were at
the beginning of those things are but in
middle age to-day. A month ago in tho
city of Baltimore there was exhibited to
the country a spectacle that made it
pause a niomeut in its pursuit after
earthly interests, and cave it matter for
thought, nay for absolute astonishment.
What was it? It was au exhibition of
the growth of the Catholic church in
the United States during the past cen
tury, its firsr century of organized ex
istence on this soil. My dear brethren,
look at our local progress here in this
marvelous dual city, look at our territo
rial progress in the Northwest, look at
our national progress in the United
States and tell me whether we can be
too thankful for the past, and too san
guine of the future, whether the real
ized facts behind us do not justify tue
highest hopes before us.
GROWTH OF THE CHUBCIL
Considerations sucn as these have at
tracted the attention of thinking men.
and in some few eases ha c awakened
the prejudices of unthinking men. The
thinking man is lie who from effects rises
to the cause and from phenomena goes to
the- inner substance and force. In the
presence of (he vitality and progress of
the Catholic church, under conditions
new to her in her life of 1,000 years,
serious men ask themselves the why
and wherefore— what may be the cause
oj this striking phenomenon. They
agree very readily to assign as the
cause our splendid organization. Parish,
dioceses. K»»me; priests, bishops, pope.
Ah. yes. there it is; graduated subordi
nation, perfect in every detail, mighty
in the bond. Nothing succeeds without
organization; the more thorough the
organization the surer, the greater the
success. Do wo not know ~it instinc
tively, we, a republican people, used to
all the contrivances by which govern
ment is carried on and large masses are
managed.l Beholding, then, the success
of the church, naturally they account
for it by organization.
Now, to a certain extent, they are
right. Organization is one of the ele
ments of our success. We do not, can
not deny it. But while admitting this
we say that the whole account of the
matter is not in ttiat one word "organi
zation." Other religions are organized,
yet they do nut excite wonder as we do.
Other religions may be organized if
they wish, on our line, yet if they did
copy us most faithfully we doubt they
would keep out pace. The Anglican,
and still more the Greek churches,
which are nearest to us in outward like
ness, arc furthest behind us in the race.
Organization alone is not the full ac
count What, then, Is there in our or
ganization that makes it so singular in
its permanency, its power aud success?
It is this, brethren, ana 1 l>eg you to at
tend to tlie statement,
THE ORGAN-IZATIOS IS DIVIKEJ
Divine organization is the full account
of the matter, the cause of our vitality
and prom-ess, the source of our power.
I insist, the organization of the Catholic
churcti is not of human but of divine
make; it is not an evolution of time or

of man's mind, but the Immediate and
direct creation of .the mind of . God.
Plainly, Jesus Christ, who is God, 1 as
sume we all agree on that point, has
embodied his religion in an organized
form, in a government, The grand out
lines of the church; hearers and teach
ers and within the body of teachers
the pope, the bishop, the priest; these,
grand outlines were laid down by Christ
himself in the charter and constitution
of the church. Without any difficulty
we admit that many incidental and sec
ondary details in the. practical working
of that organization in various
ages and countries and civiliza
tions, details that fill up and
round out and tit into this surround
ings the Rand outlines, are the out
come of human ingenuity, development
and self-evolution under thr. Intluenco
of environing conditions, we admit
that such details have changed and
varied, and will continue to change and
vary with the conditions and environ
ment'that brought them forth; and
moreover it is precisely in virtue of this
variableness in details, this elasticity in
practical working, that the. constitution
of the church can accommodate itself to
all times and peoples, and harmonize
with air civilizations, and make its
home and flourish equally in the au
tocracy of Russia and the democracy of
America. \\ hat we assert then is that
the main outlines, the fundamental
points— such points as the constitution
and charter of a nation deal with, leav
ing minor points to current legislation
and the .special needs of states pr simi
lar partitions of a people— the funda
mentals. 1 say, of the organization of
the. church are of divine institution, and
therefore unchangeable and
LA.DES WITH FINAL SUCCESS.
Before 1 proceed to show this let me
state that there is need to do so Many
thinking men suppose that the organiz
ation of the church. like that of other
corporations, is a contrivance of man, or
a natural growth, development, self-evo
lution and embodiment iv the course of
time of the religious ideal. Henry
Ward Beecher, who was the best repre
sentative of non-Catholic (bought in his
day. likened religion to education, the
chinch to the school, and said that as
education naturally, from the necessity
of the case, in time evolved itself into
school systems, so also religion neces
sarily and naturally evolved itself into
church systems, all of which are equally
true, equally good as long as they
tended to the bettering of man; that no
cue is justified in calling itseif exclu
sively the church of God, as having been
instituted directly to him.
The speaker then considers the prob
ability of this theory. Uevealed relig
ion, he states, is beyond the power of
man abandoned to himself to discover
and preserve, but it is a check and con
trol on his passions. The evidence of
God's religion is found in certain his
torical records, known as the Gospels.
Christ taught a set of doctrines to be
believed and put into practice, but he
em "Odie.i those doctrines in a society
fully constituted. ;.- - ,
The speak r after speaking further
on this subject, concluded with the
grayer that i lie day would soon come
when all nations, united under one
Shepherd, would take up their tri
umphant march and proceed to the gates
of eternity to the feet of the King of

The New Congregational Edifice
Appropriately iiedieatecl. J ."
Services which marked the opening
of the new Congregational church of
Merriani Park were held yesterday aft
ernoou at 3:30 o'clock. The chapel,
which is a modest, but pretty and at
tractive one, was tilled to its utmost ca
pacity. Rev. Herbert . Maey, the pastor
in charge, was assisted iv the services
by a number of the city pastors. The
opening prayer was - made by Rev. Air.
Snepard, or "Atlantic cliurcli. An an
ttieiu by the choir was followed by a
second urayer of thanks, made by Key.
C. W.Hackett, of St. Anthony church.
The prayer was followed by a short nis
tory of the Congregational union, which
had donated: " the -'. lot -■on" winch'
this new edifice had oeeu erected.
He could see that there were great
things in store for his new organiza
tion, its. position between tile two
cities would make it strong. Rev. Air.
Money, superintendent of Minneapolis
missions, next made a short address.
Every church, he said, had ita period
of infancy, but as the boy is father of
the man so the infant cnurcli is father
of the future churc i. lie. believed that
often a church takes on permanently
the character which it had in its in
fancy. He believed in training up a
cnurch in the way it should go, and
when it becomes old it will not depart
from it. He hoped that financial mat
ters would no. crowd out of their minds
the true aim of the church. After fui
ther music from tlie choir. Key. Mr.
.Benedict made a short congratulatory
address. The new church, with tne
Pacific, Park and Atlantic churches,
was a daughter of the old Piymoutn, of
this city. Key. Mr. Snepard, of the
Atlantic Congregational church, gave
his experience in promoting religious
work under difficulties, and urged upon
the members the necessity of strength
ening the church with earnest work.
After Key. Mr. Nutting had made a few
remarks the services were closed by the
pastor, Rev. Herbert Macy.

Erect and Dedicate St. Matthew's
— lheir Sew Church.
The Episcopalians of St. Anthony
Park opened their new and beautiiul
little chapel — St. Matthew's— yesterday
afternoon. It was an occasion of con
siderable interest to the. communicants
of that church. For the past few years
these people have been holding their
services in a small room, but finally
they saw their way clear to build a very
pretty and modest chapel. The build
ing is a white frame one. and exceeded
in cost very 1 tile over $1,5u0. It will
seat about 150 persons. The opening
exercises were held yesterday after
noon at 4 o'clock. There were present
to conduct the exercises Bishop Gilbert,
Key. C. 1). Andrews, of Christ church;
Rev. John Wright, of St. Paul's church;
Rev. W. C. Pope, of the Church of the
Good Shepherd; Rev. John White, of
St. Joint's church; Dr. Bell and Rev.
Mr. Haupt, oassistant rector at Christ
church, and pastor in charge of St.
Matthew's, the newly opeued church.
In the opening part of the services the
music was furhislvd by a quartette
choir of Mrs. J. H. Siuthall. alto; Miss
Kuissley, soprano; Mr. Newson, tenor;
Mr. Clark, basso. This first meeting in
a new edifice, was solemnized with con
firmation services, iv which B. Weeks
and Herbert George were confirmed.
Short addresses were made by Bishop
Gilbert and Rev. C. D. Andrews. The.
bishop called upon Mr. Andrews, a?
rector of the mother Episcopal church
in St. Paul, to make the first address.
His remarks were few, but to the point.
He expressed bis gratitude upon the
birth of a new c .urch. All the Episco
pal clergy of St. Paul, he said, were out
to give thanks for the new building.
He spoke of the need of the church as a
means of turning men to God. As the
people of St. Anthony Park bad built a
house for God. so God would build
them houses, which would be immortal.
Bishop Gilbert followed with a short
address.' He said that the build
ing of —the church had been a
work of faith, the parties had erected
it not knowing whence the funds for it
were coming. The plan, although it
I did not display good business qualities,
he thought was a good one, as God had
need for such a church, and their faith
in believing that it would be paid for
! would be answered. He urged the peo
pie to prepare themselves for , worship^
ing in such a house, and the necessity
of working together with God for the
advancement of His kingdom. This
was followed with an appeal for money,
and *B JO was suscribed towards paying
the debt of the new church. • The

and Suggesta an Innovation.
The People's church was well filled
last evening by au audience composed
largely of the retail salesmen nnd sales
women of the city, with also a fair rep
resentation of employers. Au able ad
dress was delivered by Rev. S. O. Smith
on the subject of early closine of the
retail hou-es of the city. Leisure, he
said, was absolutely necessary to the
proper development of man or woman.
No human being could continuously
work at the same sort of employment
from 7 in the morning until 10 at night
and be all that his maker intended ho
"The most disastrous results." he
snid. "are produced by the intermin
able following of a routine employment.
The entire energy and force of tne mind
is taken up in the use of a few of the
many faculties God lias provided for our
use. These faculties are, as a result,
overworked, while hundreds of others
remain in perfect inactivity. This Is
nn unnatural and ruinous state of af
fairs. There should l>e a time for re-cre
ation, a time for work— but a gwid deal
less time than is at present expected of
the clerks of this city— a time for the
study of the science of life, a study
which, by the way, receives
much less attention than it
should. I am glad of this
early closing movement. I was glad
when the carpenters organized, when
the bricklayers and all the trade organ
ized. lam glad to see these organiza
tions because 1 believe that by their
combination and association with each
other each sviil discover and respect the
needs and wishes of the other aud great
results will be achieved. There is no
doubt that those employers who have
signed their names to the early closing
roll to go into effect on Jan. 1 will find
the plan to be as greatly to their bene
fit eventually as to the benefit of
their employes. I understand that the
proposal is to close every day but Satur
day. Now 1 don't want to aim at too
much at once, but 1 will say that if the
choice were with me, I should say close
Saturday above any night in the week.
1 believe in this early closing as much
because it will serve to keep the people

except closing six nights, which will, of
course, come eventually, and the effect
on the saloon will be to compel its non

also, because it is the only reasonable,
rational, and more than ail. tlie only
humane solution of tne question placed
before, the world by tlie.se slaves to an

Meeting at the People's Church.
If the siz<4 of the audience thnt was
gathered together in the People's
church yesti-rdny afternoon to hear
Capt. "Billy"' Whelan, the temperance
worker, can be taken as a test, there is
certainly a great deal of tem
perance .sentiment lyme around
loose in St. Paul that cannot
be reached by the ordinary temper
ance movements in a third party way.
r l he meeting yesterday afternoon was
besfun with Scripture reading and the
singitiK of one of the stirrir.tr old hymns
that have done service at revivals for
generations past, after which the re
doubtable captain beiran his address.
"I have found much here in St. Paul
to wonder at," he eaid. "but mucn as 1
have sounded the depths of man's
meanness. I moat confess that 1 found
a revelation riitht here in St. Paul. The
Northwest has long been hearalded
a? the stronghold of legitimate
tempi:ranc<\ ' and people from
other sections expect to find
here all tnat is good iv temperance.
Men are Kniog uhont the country shout-
Inx about temperance til St. Paul. God
forgive these self-sufficient individuals
who carry expediency in their hands
and Kood'intent hidden deep in their
huarts. God never made a drunkard or
The captain then described at jenfrtii
a "grand oyeninn 15 which he noticed in
St. Paul Saturday night, and deilared
that the greater number of those, who
visited the "grand opening 0 duriue the
evening were laboring people. "The
drunken man has no opening any
where except In the six feet of
earth which buries him. There
la just as much intemperance In St.
Paul »•? iv nuy city 1 haye ever been In.
There are twenty saloons to every
church, and there's no public sentiment
to pirveut the ratio becoming even
greater. Stripped of its veneer.how pit
iful Is the cry, 'We have temperance in
the Northwest.' "
At tne conclusion of Capt. Whelan's
address temperauce pledges wero dis
tributed through the audience, and
mauy signers obtained, after which the
meeting closed with singing and tho
benediction by I>r. Smith.
]n the evening the captain talked to
the congregation of tho Central Presby
terian church in the Y. M. C. A. build
ing, and did much good in teaching the
lesson that the most dangerous man on
enrih to young men who are weak is
the respectable tippler.
When one reads of as many aa fifty
persons coming forward at once and
•wrtering the altar" at a revival meet
ing} one is forced to the conclusion that
the "altar" at a modern evangelistic
service Is something very different from
the solid structurt ot wood or marble
whicu forms the most prominent feat
nrW in a Catholic place of worship. The
"anxious inquirers" at the "mercy seat"
evidently mean an enclosure of some
kind when the speak of an "altar;" and
this reminds me of a story which was
told with much enjoyment by a distin
guished bishop of the P. K. church, who
attended tho Pan-Anglican conference
iv England. In describing a solemn
function which too place within the
historic walls of Canterbury cathedral,
tlie reporter stated that "no less than
torty-live bishops marched slowly up
the aisle, and took their seats upon the
altar;" adding tnat the "incident made
a marked impression"— as it probably
did— upon the altar!
111 the face of the many tremendous
social and religious proolems which are
engaging the attention of thoughtful
men and women of all shades of opin
ion, it is astonishing how ministers can
waste valuable time over the discussion
ot uneiiifying and even frivolous ques
tions. 1 have more than once heard a
preacher consume much time and paper
iv proving that "one drop of a Savior's
blood was surhcieut to atone for the sins
of the universe." Not to speak of the
absurd uselessn^ss of such controver
sies, time is something distressingly
painful to a renned ear in the familiar
style, bordering on irreverence, in
which momentous sacred subjects are
often hand led. '1 he schoolmen of the
miiidle ages were not wont to
spend any more time over practi
cal questions than do many of
their modern successors. A favorite
subject for uebaie in medieval times
was whether au angel, who is supposed
to be without corporeal parts, can pass
from one point <o auotln-r in tlie uni
verse without passing through any or
ail of the int rvening points. Another
••iMtrnvng question" of the &*y, over
which the schoolmen wrangled pro
digiously, was: "How many angels
can uance on the point of a needle?"
After many mighty intellects had re
duced themselves to a state of mental
exhaustion, the question was finally set
tled by the proiluctiou of the following
profound syllogism: "A point is that
which hath neither length, breadth nor
thickness; an augel, being a spiritual
essence, hath neither length, breadth
nor thickness; ?rgo— any number of
angels cau dance upou the point of a

t Considering the fact that "no revival"
services were ever deemed complete
which did not include an unmerciful on
stausilit on fie Episcopal church, it is
very interesting to learn that Sam Small
has. applied for orders iv that com
iminionl The truth is, Sain Small al
ways was very much super. or to 'tis en
vironments in the evangelistic busi
ness. He i« naturally ageiitleinan; and
[in.additio.li to being a good deal of a
scholar, he is an original tuinker and
I.iilliant speaker. Altogether, the
iEJaiseopal church may be congratulated

I>r. Mag«e, bishop ot Peterborough,
. i.U the most eloquent prelaw in Eng
isnd, is not afraid to denounce the sins
and hypocrisies of those, in high olaces.
As tlie uishop is a distinguished mem
ber of the house of lords, and many of
the chief sinners in Great Britain arc
hereditary ornaments of that august
assembly, Dr. Magi-e's plaiivspokeii ut
terances often have a chance to reach
tin* ears of those to whom they are most
applicable. Speaking of local option
the other day, he advised the house of
commons to make a beginning with
their refreshment bars, and he drew a
vivid picture of legislators iiastily swal
lowing a "hraudy-and-soda," and then
rushing into the lobbies at division
time to vote in favor of measures to
force their neighbors to drink cold
water. Good tor Bishop Magee!
The same prelate is noted for his
ready wit and quickness of repartee.
Once, when he had occasion to take a
train from a country station, he reached
the platform just as a great local mag
nate of his acquaintance drove up.- The .
train was about due. the noble lord was
flustered and nervous and swore roundly
I at one of tie servants for his awkward
ness in managing the luggage. Turn
ing suddenly round, lie encountered the
ml ft ill Irish eyes of Bishop Magee.
'1 he earl apologized for giving way to
profanity within earshot of a dignitary
of the church, adding: "You know, my
Ion!, I am a plain man, and always call
a spade a spade." The bishop quickly
replied, "1 am glad to have your lord
ship's assurance that you. always call a
spade a spade, as, judging from what I
have just heard. 1 should have supposed
you would call it *a damned old shovel.' "
