Most of the churches of tho city
yesterday at sjoio point in their ser
vices touched upon the sadness that
has befallen the nation. There was
general display about the altars of
the national colors hung in mourning,
while in many cases pictures of the
martyred president draped in crepe
hung in view of the congregation.
A number of the ministers chose
their subject In keeping with the oo
cauoa, ana inose who am not do so
found occasion ti make feeling refer
ence to what was uppermost in the
minds of all. In several cases the
music reflected patriotic sorrow,
Everywhere at public worship un
usually large congregations were
present, indicating the one good that
springs Irom such a tragedy
the broadening and deepening .of
"Tho Nation's Lom."
Rev. George B. Simons, of the First
Baptist church, took for bis morning
subisct "Tne Nation's Loss'. After
a abort introduction Riv. Simons
compared the calamity of the present
with that which has twice before be
fallen the nation, contending that, as
this country is now of vastly greater
proportions, more intricate iu itself
and of more far-reaching import now
than when it previously suffered the
tracric loss of its chief executive, so
the present instance is the gravest by
fir that has come to pass. A one of
the most evident of the results of Mo
Kinley's wisdom as a chief executive
the closer union of the north and
south was pointed out, as shown by
the present tone of the southern
The loss. Rev. Simons said, was
universal in that all nations were con
cerned in the workings of America'
policy and irreparable in that the in
dividuality of the late president wa
such that no man can duplicate it
In the speaker's mind McKiniey was a
genius in the capacity he mampa
lated for overcoming seemingly in
surmountable obstacles and in bring
ing to accord the inharmonious ele
ments in his first administration
From the lowest to the highest round
of the ladder he climbed he filled
every position well. He was great in
his friendships, both in the character
of the men to whom he was drawn
and in the fidelity he manifested to
ward them. He was great, too, in hi
devotion to hi' wife. Rev. Simon
closed with a touching reference to
the position in which the latter has
been placed by the loss of her sale
support in life.
"Oar Martyred President"
Rev. C. O. McCullocb, pastor of the
rirst Methodist church, at the morn
ing service spoke of "Oar Martyred
rresiaent." me sermon was one
which deeply moved all who heard it
The dead statesman, in bis home life
in his political life, in his christian
life, and as a man. was shown in the
colors in which he was known to hi
people ever true, wise, generous and
brave. The tribute came from the
heart of the pastor and it went to the
heart of the hearts of his bearers
Rev. McCulloch, repeating the words
of McKin'ey when struck the fatal
blow, "Do no violence to the man,'
urged the suppression of the desire of
the American people for vengeance in
accordance with the chiefs wish
pointing out the futility of violence
and the unchristian part it shows
when duly weighed.
At tho Ohrtatlsa Charch.
At the Memorial Christian church
Rev. Thomas J. Shuey supplemented
his regular subject with a few words
relative to the death of the president
feeling that it were better not to fore-
stall any future public demonstration
A reference was made to the lessons
to be drawn from the life of McKin
ley in its purity and christian charac
ter. In ail things Rev. Shuey felt
that he had been a great man. In the
reconciliation ef contending factions
that tended to disturb his adminis
tration and in the ability he mani
fested in dealing with other nations
he was especially great. The story
of the manner of his death shows the
highest degree of christian fortitude
and will live among the cherished
annala of the nation. The work of
the assassin, in the opinion of the
speaker, was the inspiration of Satan
Such demonstrations, he contended,
should lead publio speakers to tern
per their remarks in times of political
excitement when morbid minds are
apt to acquire the taint which leads
to desperate deeds.
At tho Broadway Charch.
Rev. W. S. Marqois. pastor cf the
Broadway Presbyterian church, took
for his subject the last words of the
dying president, "God's will, not
ours, be done." Rev. Marquis
said: "The tolling bells which rang
forth their doleful message through
the night's shadows sent a thrill of
pain to millions of waiting and anx
ious hearts. Few presidents more
completely won the hearts of the
whole people than did William Mc
Kiniey. Men of all political parties
honored and trusted him however
much tbev differed from his views.
They knew him as a good man, a
genial gentleman, a pure patriot and
conscientious statesman. There is
now no north nor south, east nor
west, capitalist nor laborer, rich nor
poor, but all mourn as American
citizens. McKiniey was a good man.
pure in his motives and honest in his
deeds, and a christian in his public
life. Born of Sc6tch-Irish ancestry
be had both the depth of religious
conviction and strength ef purposo
which characterize that indomitable
race. He was honored by kings as a
royal man; he was trusted by diplo
mats for simple and sincere straight
forwardness, and all the great leaders
of commerco and finance recognized
in him one of the master minds of
"The crime of the assassin was not
simply a blow at William McKiniey;
it was a blow at the presidency and
all that the name implies. It was a
blow at the sacred nijjsty of the law
under which no one can bacons trained
by the will or whims of individuals
The blow was aimed at liberty, at all
free institutions and at the very life
of the nation. It is time the heel of
the law was put upon the head of an
archy. And here it may be said that
lynching is anarchy. Let us be
thankful that the assassin was not
lynched on the spot and let us also
cultivate the respect of law and for
the ofiices of the government It is
the way to meet anarchy on Its own
At Contra! Praabytcrlao.
Said Rev. William Torrence at the
Central Presbyterian church:
If President McKiniey had been a
bad man. as some rulers have been,
or if be had been sacking to take away
the rights of any clas of men; or if
be had bee a violating the law and
constitution of his country or tyran
nising over the people, while there
would have been no excuse for the
manner of his taking off there might
have been some slight mitigation of
so heinous a crime But he was the
opposite of all this. In personal

add to the high esiimate iu- whica
he is held by his countrymen.
"But what a cruel and untimely tak
iog off this has been, enough to rouse
the people to a white heat of righteous
indignation against the vile perpetra

deed. But let us beat in mind that
as a nation we ar not entirely goili

is on our hands. We have boasted of
our free tpaech and have allowed it
to degenerate into license. We have
allowed irresponsible men to hurl
without hindrance their murderous
doctrines and these catching in the
feeble brains and dry and withered
emotions of assassins have kindled
them to their deeds of murder. Nor
is the press of our country altogether
guiltless, la our political campaigns.

even the omcials ol the nation are
often held up to scorn and cmtempt
by the opposition papers v ith those
who understand these campaign tac
tics no great harm will ensue, but
with certain weak minds who accept
as infallible truth all that their pipers
say. the assassination of such mon

crime, but a brave and patriotic duty.
As a nation we have passed the period

At Trinity Charch.
At Trinity Episcopal church yes
terday there was rtquiem service
for the soui of the departed president
with commendatory prayers for the
family and the communion ofiioe with
the co lects. epistle and gotpel. Rev.
George II Kaltenbach said in part
"After the attempted assassination of
the president of tne United States the
hearts of a united people went up to
God in prayer that in li s infiaite
goodness and mercy He would, yet
vouchsafe to him complete recovery.
In the interval it seemed that the
