IN THEIR NEW HOME.
Westminster People Hold Services
in the New Church.
Westminster Presbyterian church, for the
first time in a year and a half, last evening
held services in their own house. Since
Sept. 5, 1595, the date of the burning of the
old church, in which children had grown to
maturity, and pastors become hoary in
Christian service, Westminster congregation
have been church wanderers. For a time
after the fire they united in service with
First Baptist church. Then they leased the
old Grand opera house building, and when
the Grand was converted tnto a storage room,
Westminster people sought and found shelter
at Lyceum theater. Here for the past year,
at both morning and evening service, large
audiences have collected of men and women
anxious to hear and gather in the wisdom
which fell from the lips of Rev. Pleasant
Hunter, pastor of the church. During all this
time, however, the church has felt the loss
of its building, and looked eagerly forward
to the time when its services should again
be held beneath Its own roof. That wish
lias at last been realized.
Only the parlors of the church are yet en
closed, but a special effort on the part of the
contractors has completed these rooms, which
will hereafter hold the prayer meetings, the
Sunday school and the young people's society
meetings. The most important work of the
church will thus be allowed to go along with
out hindrance, while the Sunday services will
as yet be held at the Lyceum. The rooms
now ready for use are most beautiful in de
sign and arrangement, giving an ida of the
magnificence of the entire edifice when com
pleted. It will be without doubt the most
perfect church building in the West.
LOOKS LIKE A GO.
Believed Tlint the Theater Censor-
ship Proposition Will I'iinh.
The theater censorship proposition is a "go."
Tinder Maj. Pratt's direction, a motion has
been drawn up and will be introduced at
the meeting of the city council tonight, pro
viding for the appointment of an official to
be known as an inspector of pifbLc amuse
ments, whose duties will be such as already
outlined in the Glob c. He will be empow
ered to visit all questionable forms of amuse
ment in the theaters, concert haKs, etc.,
and to exercise his discretion in either clos
ing them up or requiring the removal of ob
jectionable features. A certain sum of money
will be appropriated out of which his en
trance fees and incidental expenses are to be
paid, so that the city will be in no way under
obligations to the theaters for free admission.
No nient.on of the salary to be allowed the
inspector is made in the motion. That will
b<> derided later. There seems reason to be
lieve that the motion will prevail.
COILD NOT FINISH.
Too Much Criminal Work on Hnnd
for the JuilKfi.
The hope that all the criminal cases would
be disposed of this term has been dashed to
the ground, after a meeting of the judges
of the district court yesterday, and the result
was that several cases went over the term.
It wa.s finally decided that two judges would
take care of criminal cases at the beginning
of the April term, for the purpose of complet
ing the work, as it was not the intention
of continuing the December term much longer.
A case against Andrew Bowers was no lied,
as he is now serving time for who-at steal
ing. The case of Charles Sparks and others,
charged with stealing wheat, went over the
term. The cases against George Deitz. Wil
liam Lofnis. Burt White, William Blackner,
Robert Shafer will all probably go over the
term, as they were passed for that purpose.

San Francisco Man Looks for a Joib
at the Cycle Show.
Carl Zomwitz, of San Francisco, has writ
ten to the management of the Minneapolis
Cyjcle show offering for a consideration to
exnibit here what he refer* to as ( 'the only
perfected flying machine in the world." The
inventor offers to make two or three des
cents a day during the show from the top of
the exposition building, or, as he puts it,
"from any monument or high building in
Minneapolis is a little shy on monuments,
but the management of the show is rather
inclined to accept the offer of the Callfornian
flying man and introduce a novelty that is
certain to prove attractive.
It it, not yet settled that the flying ma
chine will be added to the show, but It ought
to be a very good attraction. Zomwitz
could be persuaded doubtless to do his hov

space enough in it to permit of some elab

VIEWED BY THOUSANDS.
When the head of the parade came
in sight of the thousands lining tho
way to the capitol, the magnificent
stretch of broad asphalt of Pennsyl
vania avenue was swept as clean of in
truders as though the whole town was
deserted for behind the wire rope a
steady patrol of police had forced a
hundred thousand persons.
Ahead of everything in the line of pa
rade rode Maj. William G. Moore, chief
of police of Washington, and with him,
Capt. Austin, both in full uniform.
They were not scheduled for this po
sition in the official programme, and
the majority of the crowd cheered the
police chief lustily under the impres
sion it was doing honor to Gen. Hor
ace Porter, grand marshal of the pa
Behind this advance guard came a
dozen mounted policemen and next th<-
Governor's IsJand band, in the blue and
white uniform of the infantry, their sil
ver instruments shining in the sunlight,
and the strains of their martial music
floating up clear and resonant above
the broken hurrahs of the crowd.
Then, in an apparently endless vista,
down the avenue, stretched the mag
nificent array of the first grand mil
itary division, twenty files across, and
platoon after platoon in close order:
it marched like a great machine, glit
tering brass helmets, flashing side
arms, the sunlight glinting on hun
dreds of bayonets that stretched from
side to side of the avenue. Viewed
as a whole, the procession presented
the appearance of a series of immense
squares, each square a regiment ami
between each the brilliant group, the
commanding officer and his mounted
staff. As far as the eye could reach,
they stretched, infantry in blue an 1
white, the artillery with its dash of
crimson, the marines conspicuous in
their blue storm coats, with the crim
son linings, the golden striped hussars
on their black steeds, while over the
whole floated hundreds of flags, regi
mental banners and fluttering guidons.
Behind Gen. Porter and his immedi
ate military staff, there were 200 special
mounted aides, each with high silk
hat, yellow gauntlets and a broad
white sash from the left shoulder to
the right side. Of all the glittering
staff, Col. H. C. Corbin, adjutant gen
eral of the army, was the only man
who wore his sash from right to left.
THE SAINT PAtTL GLOBE. FRIDAY, MARCH g. 1897.
This waa one of the unique and inter
esting features of the parade and was
much commented upon.
•Another interesting feature of the
special mounted aides, which did not
appear except to those familiar with
the arrangements, was that in the ag
gregation there were flve sons of ex
presidents of the United States. They
were U. S. Grant, Webb C. Hayes.
Harry A. Garfield, Chester A. Arthur
and Russel Harrison.
Immediately "behind the group of
special aides came the escort to the
president, the black horse troop of
Cleveland, O. If they had looked bril
liant in the morning during their ride
to the capitol, they were now imposing.
The coal black horses danced to the
music, and the golden gridiron fronts
of the hussar Jackets flashed as they
rose and fell in the bright sunlight.
The white gauntlet gloves threw a
point of high light into the picture
and the red-topped shakos nodded as
the escort swept up ahead of the car
VOLLEY OF CHEERS.
Then all up and down the avenue
rose great cheers, that rolled through
and echoed back, and was taken up
and repeated again as the carriage of
the president and ex-president rolled
into view. President McKJnley with
a white silk handkerchief around his
neck, held his hat in his hand, raising
it now and then to right or left in re
sponse to some particularly enthu
siastic cheer. He still looked pale, but
he was smiling as he neared the end of
his triumphal pilgrimmage. Ex-Presi
dent Cleveland, now seated on the left
of President McKinley, was smiling,
In contrast to the stolid expression he
bcre most of the day.
Behind the carriage of the president
and ex-president marched a little band,
perhaps a hundred in number, in the
plain, dark blue coats and slouch hats
of the G. A. R. They were not young
men like the ether marchers, for every
head was gray, and they stepped proud
ly bearing blue pennons blazoned with
"Twenty-third Ohio"in gold. They were
veterans of the old regiment in whose
battles the president had won the title
of major, and fittingly they were given
the place of honor directly behind their
old time comrade.
Then in full array swept down the
head of the first grand military di
vision, led by Gen. Granville M. Dodge,
chief marshal, with his gold trapped
staff on prancing horses scattered out
at regular intervals over the great
expanse of the avenue, like an immense
chess-board set all with knights. Be
hind them again came a smaller troop
of mounted officers headed by
Gen. Wesley Merritt, U. S. A.,
marshal of the First brigade, arid be
hind this, Col. Poland, oommander of
thf- vorps of United States engineers
and staff. Thus the whole great body
of military officers lested like a gigantic
wedge with its apex against the broad
front of the dismounted forces that
followed, leading these were the engi
neers with their castle banner, white
on a scarlet field, mingled its folds with
the stars and stripes that floated at
its side. .
Rank after rank the dismounted
square swept by, then a break, and
another mounted staff, that of Maj.
Tracy, commanding the Seventeenth
United States infantry, whoEe full dress
helmets g-littered as they swung in an
oblique to gain the center of the ave
nue, and the white facings of thousands
of legs moved with machine-like regu
larity, leg overlapping leg like the
ba.s relief of Egyptian sculpture appar
ently without perspective.
Behind them came a dismounted
regiment of United States artillery,
under Col. F. L. Gunther. Like a great
thousand-legged monster, the regiment
wound by, its arms at a carry. Then
there was a cheer that started with the
Washingtonians, who knew them, and
was taken up by the remainder of the
crowd. It was the United States
Marine band, fifty pieces strong, with
their drum major in scarlet and gold
at Its head swinging his baton In a
blurred but glittering spiral back and
forth, up and down, and then tossing
it high in the air, as the band brokf
out into the familiar strains of "Colum
bia, the Gem of the Ocean." This red
coated, gald-s=.pla.shed section of the
parade was one of the m«»st striking
pictures in the whole of the brilliant
military division. Behind the marines
followed the light battery, under com
mand of Maj. James Lancaster, and
then with a ringing clash of hoofs, the
Indian fighting troopers of the good
old Sixth cavalry, Col. Sumner com
manding, rode by, sitting their horses
Their orange plumes waved and
tossed in the wind, and their sword 3
flashed from hip to shoulder, while
their horses, used to the circus fun of
the riding hall at the fort, danced to
the music of the mounted regimental
band, and seemed to enjoy the pageant
as much, or rather more than their
riders. Following this section of the
regular forces came a detachment ol
1,200 of the District of Columbia na
tional guard, under command of Col.
STATE SOLDIER BOYS.
The second division of the parade
consisted of troops of the national
guard of the several states. At their
head in many instances rode the gov
ernor of the state. Commanding this
division was Gov. Asa S. Bushnell,
marshal, with Gen. Axline as adjutant.
It comprised three brigades. In the
first were troops from Pennsylvania,
New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts
and Maryland. Gov. Bushnell received
an ovation, as he headed the most
gorgeously attired staff in the whole
line. The first organization in this
lire was the Washington infantry, of
Philadelphia. The New Jersey organiz
ations and Connecticut followed. Mary
land probably earned the distinction of
mustering more men in line than any
other state, and very proud looked

of the militia from six states, headed by

Gov. Black. Little Rhode Island
showed up well. Gov. Grout, of Ver

of a splendid battalion. Gov. Tanner,
of Illinois, made a notable figure. He
was spendidly mounted and was cheer
ed to the echo.

was any criterion. About forty men

with rapturous applause. This wound

parade and while there have been more

that in point of quaJity this display
left nothing to be desired.

WASHINGTON, March 4— The senate
chamber was the center of attraction,
and early in the day the galleries pre
sented a picture to which an artist's
pallette alone could do Justice. The
senate proceedings were brief inter
ims between recesses, for the time had
gone by for anything beyond the vital
legislation of appropriation bills.
Mme. Yang Yu, wife of the Chinese
minister, accompanied by Mr. Sze and
a number of ladies, was one of the
early arivals. She was richly gowned
in lavender silk of Oriental pattern,
with a head dress of bright red roses,
and in a front seat she was a center
of interest to the waiting crowds.
The galleries were startled shortly
after 11 o'clock when former Queen L.U
iukalani entered the diplomatic gal
lery, accompanied by her secretary,
Mr, Palmer. She stood momentarily
within the doors while the officials hes
itated as though in doubt what to do.

Her kindly face was framed in rolls
of gray hair, like those in old prints.
She was two seats from Mrs. McKin
ley, Jr., and the two bent forward

The diplomatic corps entered the
chamber at 11:45, followed a moment
later by the chief justice and asso
ciate justices of the supreme court.
They filed slowly down the aisle in
gorgeous regalia and sl'ken robes, the!
crowds on the floor and in the gal- j
leries standing respectfully until they i
were seated. The members of the j
house of lepresentatltvs. headed by
Speaker Rted. Mr. Dingiey, the tariff
leader, near at hand, then entered the
STIR OF INTEREST.
There was a stir of interest when i
senate officials announced the vice- j
president-elect. Mr. Hobart entered i
the right door, bowed slightly to the |
standing senators and officials, and |
stepped to the seat near the presiding j
officer's desk. On the lapel of his coat !
was a large bunch of violets. All this |
was but accessory to the main scene, j
which had been so eagerly, waited— the
arrival of President Cleveland and
It was just 12:20 when they entered J
the main doors, facing the vice presi- I
dent, and attention was riveted at
once on these two central figures. As
they moved down the middle aisle, Mr.
Cleveland was a trifle in advance,
stepping haltingly and with a sugges
tion of* hio recent rheumatic trouble.
His face looked grave.
Mr. McKinley followed closely, step- ;
ping easily down the aisle, his poise j
being easy and dignified. He bowed
to the presiding officer, and, with Mr. I
Cleveland, was seated immediately in !
front of the presiding officer, facing
the senate and the crowd.
On the left sat Maj. Gen. Miles, com
manding officer of the army, and Ad
miral Brown, senior officer of the navy,
both in full uniform. To the right
was another blaze of rich uniforms and
decorations, the four ambassadors, Sir
Julian Pauncefote, M. Patenotre, Baron
yon Thielman and Baron Fava being
directly to the side of Mr. McKinley.
The members of the outgoing cabi
net were in a semi-circle to the left
facing the outgoing and incoming pres
idents. On the opposite side of the
center aisle, in a semi-circle, were
Chief Justice Fuller and the associate
justices, wearing thetr Jong silk robes,
the circle of silvered heads and strong
faces making a picture of dignity and
force. Near them were Gen. Porter and
Marshal Wilson, of the District of Co
lumbia. Back of the supreme court
judges were the ministers of foreign
countries, wearing their rich uniforms
of black and red, their breasts resplen
dent with gold embroidery, from which
hung many court decorations.
The members of trie hAuse of repre.
sentatives filled the entire body of tho
hall on the right side, and on the op
posite area of the chamber sat the
senators and senators-elect. As the
presidential party took their seats,
Vice President Stevenson rose and in
vited his successor to step forward
and take the oath of office.
Mr. Hobart advanced to the desk,

to advanc and take the oath of uflice.
At the presiding officer's suggestion,
Mr. Morrill, the patriarch of me sen

first to be sworn in.
As the new senators took the oath,
there was a hum of interest through

public political life were recognized,
when, with uplifted hand they swore
allegiance to the constitution.
No exact order was observed, the
oath being given to four senators at
one time. The names of Thomas Platt.
of New York, and Joseph Benson For

Platt came forward on the arm of
Senator Murphy, of New York, borh
smiling and exchanging pleasantries as
they went to the desk. Mr. Foraker
was on the arm of that notable vet

FRANKFORT, Ky., March 4.— Gov.
Bradley this afternoon wrote and filed
the following dispatch:
Hon. M. A. Hanna. Arlington Hotel, Wash
ington: I stated in the Commercial Tribune
more than two months ago that no session
! would be called until after March 4. I told !
I you that a session would be had immediately i
after that date, hence your dispatch of today
urging me to rail a session immediately is
unwarranted. The session will be called to-
I morrow, and that fact will ba influenced
alone by what I conscientiously believe to
be the best interest of the public service.
—William O. Bradley.
This telegram was the result of sev
eral dispatches received by the gov
ernor from Mr. Hanna ?in>ce the latter
has been In Washington. Bradley's
friends claim that E>r. Hunter anil
other anti-Bradley Kenturkyians in
Washington have made Hanna be
lieve that Brailey means to appoint
and fail to call a session, rather than
allow his o!d enemy. Hunter, to be
elected senator. They say that these

eend several telegrams here, one urg
ing him not to appoint the senator, A.
T. Wood, whom he will appoint tomor

extra session Immediately. Today
Hanna wired Bradley again, asking
when he would call an extra session,
and urging it to be done at once. Mr.

CARSON, Nev.. March 4.— Dr. John
Glnan, one of the leading physicians in
Nevada, waa very much surprised this
morning to receive a call to Shaw's
Springs, where Corbett is training:. The
messenger told him that the champion
himself wanted the doctor. Corbett
was very angry over a report sent out j
from here to the effect that he was
in poor health, because of an alleged I
affection of the liver. Corbett's repu
tation for good humor was shattered
when he heard of the reports. He
stormed about the place, using some
very strong language, and finally sent
for the doctor. The examination lasted
nearly three-quarters of an hour, and
was thorough in every particular. The
doctor then stated that there was ab
solutely no foundation for the rumor.
He said Corbett was the finest speci
men of physical manhood he had ever
seen. At Cor'bett's request the doctor
made a written statement, giving the
result of his examination. The cham
pion went through his day's work as
One of the sensational incidents at
the Fitzsimmons camp today was a
visit of the district attorney in com
pany with a deputy sheriff. The dis
trict attorney informed Fitzsimmons'
manager that unless a license was
taken out for the show which is given
every afternoon a complaint would
be sworn out tomorrow morning Which
would lead to the arrest, not only of
the fighter, but of his trainers. This
trouble grew out of the general dis
approbation of the citizens of Carson
over an arrangement Julian made with
the proprietor of a livery stable pro
viding for a charge of $1 to and froir-
Cook's ranch. This charge was not
deemed exorbitant, but the fact that
a customer was given a ticket ad
mitting him to Fitzsimmons' gymna
sium brought about this threat of ar
rest. The district attorney did not
insist on the license fee of tl.Om. but
asked for the usual theatrical license |
of $75 a year or $20 a month. There were
seme hot words between Julian and the
district attorney, and the former de
cided to pay the license.
Fitzsimmons did not think that any
further denial of the story published j
of his alleged dissipation was neces- j
sary. Fitzsimmons' appearance certain- I
ly does not in any way justify the re- !
port that he has been drinking. This ■
afternoon he punched the bag fifteen
rounds with only a half minute rest be
tween, and then boxed and wrestled
alternately for nearly an hour with
his three trainers.
Dan Stuart walked down to his of
fice this morning, but was warned by
his doctor that he was taking great '
risk and he soon returned to his room I
Martin Flaherty, «-ho i s to fight Haw
kins on the 18th, arrived on the after
noon train. Stuart this evening gave
out this statement:

this o.ty to all parts of the country affect
ing to deal with the illness of one and the i
dissipation of another of the principal to
the coming contest calls for some sort of
statement from me. There was not the
slightest foundation for the story. Corbett
r.ved. Fitzsimmons. naturally of an ab
stemious bent, has not touched a drop of
liquor other than the ordinary pugilist In
active training, with a slight 7old now and
then takes. If any one thing is more grati
fying than another to me. It Is the zealf sin
cerity and resoluteness displayed by the men
under contract to engage }n a battle for the
championship of the world hero on the 17th
of tins month. The sole annoyance caused
I publication lies in the fact that I
should be called upon to deny a story print
ed in great newspapers.
The first official statement of seating
arrangements was given to the Asso
ciated Press this morning. The arena
has twelve large sections, and is not
octagonal. There are 2,800 box seats
grouped from six to twelve in a box'
$40 seats; 5,436 reserve at $20; 5,728 at
$10 and 1,288 at $5 each, making a to.
tal seating capacity of 15,252. Should
all these seats be occupied at the Cor
bett-Fitzsimmons fight the receipt*
would amount to $284,000.
Space has been set aside for operat
ing the kinetoscope, also about 210
seats for members of the press in two
rows against and entirely surrounding
the ring. The ropes, posts and pad
ding for the ring, the same as used
for the Corbett-Sharkey fight, will be
here today. The platform for the rin~
is now up. The boxes will be complet
ed today. In fact the arena will pre
sent an almost finished appearance at
the close of today's work.

this morning, pleased with the mild
spring wteather. Fitzsimmons mad"

Corbett, who seldom is seen In town
took the opposite direction over tho
foot hills. Concerning charges of
drinking that had been made against
Fitzsimmons, the general opinion Beem3
to be that he is doing nothing to in

loon in his gymnasium gives ample op- j
portunky for Fttz to drink in private
if he desired. While he has been seen
in saloons with Julian and others, no
one has been found Who will assert
having seen the big lighter indulging
in liquor to an extent producing any
Bigms of intoxication.
Two! Billiard flam.-*.
PITTSBURG, Pa., March 4.-There were no
separate features In the two gamea played
in the billiard tournament today, except the
poor quality of work done. Sutton played
a good uphill game and defeated Catton, who

out of the race for a money prize. If he
wins from Spinks he still has a chance for
third money. Afternoon score: Sutton 400

highest run, 78; average, 13 17-21. Tonight's I
