Mayor and CityConncll.
At the entrance to the church the
line opened and tbe mayor and council
entered with the police and others in
regular ord r seats being reserved for
all in the cc ntre aisle, which was com
pletely filled by the various societies.
Tbe church was elegantly draped with
United States flags great and small,
in profusion; thirteen shields of red,
white and Hue in stripes with the thir
teen stars aid name, of original ttilr
teeu states 'vere on the walls with por
traits of Wsshington, Lincoln and H&r

After the society had their places the
service began with singing the hymn.
"O, Come, Loved Anthems, Let us
Sing." etc., followed by the sentences,
Lord's prayor and versicles, the anthem,
the 118 Psalm responsively by the entire
congregation. The lesson was Duet.

Tbe rectcr, Mr. Sweet, then made a
short address with reference to tbe relig
ious elements which underlay the organi
sation of thu government, quoting from
Washington's inaugural and farewell ad
dresses on this subject.
The by ma "God Bless our Native
Land," was '.hen sung, after which Oliver
Olson, Esq., made a most eloquent ad
dress, comparing tbe condition of society
one hundred years ago with the present,
touching on prison reform, tbe condition of
women and our courts of justice, and dwel
ling on tbe remarkable progress of civ
ilization. The address was In most ex
cellent taste, with many classic allusions,
and bis reference to Grant and Lincoln
was especially thrilling and praiseworthy.
No mere outline can do justice to tbe ad
dress, which claimed the closest attention
throughout from the immense audi
ence. After Mr. Olson's remarks, the
drum corps executed a stirring strain
r'b excellent taste and execution. Then
came the Lymn, "God of Our Father by
Whose Hand." etc., followed by prsyer
and benediction. The whole audience
joined in singing 'The Star Spangled
Banner," af tar which the immense con

rector, Mr. Sweet, whose unsparing ef

pressive, appropriate and interesting.
The church was exquisitely beautified
with flower , and the altar beautiful in

Rev. Mr. M irquis, tbe pastor, in the ab

prevented by illness from doing so. made
a few brief tut fitting remark. Lie said
that one but dred year, ego this morning

blessing upon tbe inauguration of George
Washington as first president of tbe
United State u .' At soon upon this day
one bundre 1 : year, ago, Washington
tanding upon tbe balcony of the Federal
hall in the city of New fork in the pres
ence of a multitude of his admiring fel
low citizens, laid his band upon the bible
and took the solemn oath:
"I do solemnly swear that I will faith
fully execute the office of President of
tbe United States, and will to the best of
my ability, protect and defend and pre
serve tbe constitution of tbe United
Then stooping, said Mr. Marquis, be
reverently kissed the sacred book and
fervently exclaimed "so help me God."
Chancellor Livingston turning to the peo
pie proclaimed "long live George Wash
ington tbe president of tbe United
States," while the people responded
"OOD BLESS OUR WASHINGTON,"
long live our beloved president. Thus
did this nation conceived by the declara
tion of independence amid tbe throes of
the revolution, schooled in the troubu
lou. times of tbe continental congress
and constitutional convention, step forth
at last and take Its place among tbe
nations of the earth. This thirtieth day
of April is therefore one of tbe most im
portant anniversaries in our history. It
wss a day of great joy one hundred years
go, yet a joy commingled with fear; for
that civil government -which was at that
time set in operation was then unique,
untried. Mr. Marquis then mentioned
some of the dangers and obstacles that
beset the way of the founder, and pro
moters of the new republic, some of
which were no money, no credit, no
national spirit, savages and a wilderness
to the west, tbe ridicule and powerful
nations of tbe old world on tbe east, but,
worse than all, enemies to tbe constitution
in every one of the states, ready to criti
cize and obstruct every measure looking
toward the least centralization of power
or the upbuilding of a national spirit.
No one realized these obstacles in a
keener sense than did tbe brave man who
that day took the oath of office and
shouldered the responsibility of putting
this ew government to the test.
We are assembled today to give thanks
to the God in whom our fathers trusted
for the success of tbe experiment tbey set
in operation, to rejoice in the continued
possession of the liberties and Institu
tions they secured for us, and to renew
our vows to be loyal to the nation and to
the God who gave us the goodly heritage.
The reasons Mr. Marquis assigned for
the government being such a glorious
success were: 1. The richness of our
resources and the natural advantage of
our position. 2. The sterling worth of
tbe people and their leaders. 8. The
noble charter of our government the
constitution. 4. The hand of a merci
ful God so manifest in our history.
Finally, said Mr. Marquis, if we are to
retain this goodly heritage we must be
Pure and patriotic in character.
Coursgeous in facing tbe problems of
Loyal to our constitution and our flag,
and trust in God.
Then came the renditiou of tbe pat
riotic bymn "Hail Columbia" by Bleuer's
band and tbe audience, followed by the
presentation of souvenirs to the children
badges and flags. "Columbia.the Gem
of the Ocean" was rendered, as was an
anthem by tbe chorus choir of tbe
Broadway church. The benediction
closed the exercises.
AT THE U. K CHURCH.
Impressive and patriotic services were
beld in the First M . E. church which were
attended by a large congregation . The
pastor. Rev. G. W: Gue, chose bis text
from Prov. 14:34:
RighteoaftncM exalteth a nation, bat tn 1 a
raproucn to any people.
This thirtieth day of April. 1889, said
Mr. Gue. will be forever memorable in
our national historv and in the annals of
the human race, marking as it does, tbe
greatest acbieyement ever made in the
science of civil government and demon
strating the capacity of mankind to
For a century we have lived and pros
pered under these institutions and today
we are the happiest, tbe freest and most
prosperous people in tbe world.
No nation ever bad greater cause for
rejoicing and for thanksgiving than our
own, and none ever beld a more sacred
trust than tbe American people. We
stand today in tbe midst of grand historic
memories, tbe inheritors of a goodly land
and a glorious history; the progeny of a
race of heroes famed in every land and
honored wherever known.
Look in st back through all tbe hundred
years of our national life, calling to mind
tbe heroism, tbe loyalty, tbe unselfish de
votion to country ef Washington and
a host of others, may we not catch a
lofty inspiration which shall increase tbe
fervor of our zeal for our country', wel
fare. Our fathers, when they laid tbe founda
tion of this republic, set themselves to tbe
establishment of the ideal republic of
history. The first foundation stone,
were laid while the crack of tbe musketry
still tarried in the air and the blood of
patriots was still wet upon tbe sod. One
of tbe first foundation stones was religious
liberty; a boon most precious to every
freeman. America was tbe fulfillment
of prophecy. "A land where every men
could sit under hi. own vine and fig tree
with none to make him afraid." Not
only doe. our federal constitution provide
that every man shall have liberty to wor
ship God according to tbe dictates of his
own conscience, but also that no religious
test shall ever be required as a qualifica
tion to office or public trust. The first
amendment to tbe constitution prohibits
the making of laws respecting the estab
lishment of religion. Tbe people were
to be left unfettered; men bad fled from
tbe old to the new world for religious
liberty, and when once here they were
determined never to give it up All men
bond and free, Barbarian and Greek, Jew
and Gentile, Romanist and Protestant,
were to stand on a level and if in tbe pro
cess of history the lean kin swallow up
the fat, so much tbe worse for the fat.
Experience has proven this to be a wise
rule and we may well oppose any move
ment, direct or indirect, which looks to
wards tbe diversion of tbl. prinoiple.
Another foundation of atone was laid
by tbe faithful one. of old; that was,
there should be no taxation without rep
resentation. To this principle we tena
ciously adhere with this .ingle exception
that our women are relieved from the
burden of voting, but .till enjoy the priv
ilege of taxation. Passing on to scruti
nize tbe building and tbe builders of tbe
past and immediate present, we find no
reason to lose confidence in the ultimate
glorious consummation of this ideal re
public. It is .a fact in history
tnat no age ascribe the inn measure
of praise and gratitude wblcb is due to
its own great men.
When Caesar's dead body.mangled and
bloody, appealed to tbe Roman sympa
thies they then acknowledged hi great
ness. Macau lay tell, us tnat England
never fairly realised tbe greatness of Oli
ver Cromwell till it compared that great
man with the smallnes. of the second
Charles. Then men everywhere ac
knowledged bis valor, patriotism and
genius. If we come nearer nome we
know that be, whom we love to style
tbe Father of Our Country, was often
vilified and abused by men of bis own
day. But vilifiers are short lived. They
are gone, and Washington lives lives
in the hearts of bis countrymen like a
finished and faultless piece of painting. I
Tbe more his life is studied tbe more 1
will he be admired and the brighter will
his virtues shine. He is one of the few
men whose fame and influence constitute
tb e common inheritance of tbe race and
will live through all time. Webster
said: "Washington was a fixed star in
tbe firmament of great names shining
without twinkling or obscurity, with
clear, steady, beneficient light." Thomas
Jefferson said of him that "never did
nature and fortune combine more per
fectly to make a great man hi integ
rity was the most pure, his justice the
most inflexible !I have ever known." This
republic will die, only when
the principles and spirit im
pressed upon it by Washing
ton shall have ceased to animate
it. It will live in purity and vigor in
proportion as tbey are applied and trans
fused through the civil institutions of the
nation. Every stone in our national
structure was laid in principles entirely
christian. The opening of the Conti
nental congress was with prayer, by Rev.
M. Duche, the 7th day of September,
Prayer was offered during the framing
of the constitution of the United States;
although the name of God is not in that
document, tbe great majority of men in
the convention were christian men. That
document contains nothing but christian
principle. The christian churches have
been the jealous defenders of the consti
tution from the beginning. When tbis
nation forsakes the old landmarks, tram
ples on the principles that are christian,
discards the bible, the power ot prayer
and the holy Sibbath, then across her
ralr name will be written, "I-cha-bob,
the glory is departed."
IN ST. JOSEPH'S CATHOLIC CHURCH
high mass was celebrated at 9 o'clock,
when Rev. Father Thomas Mackin de
livered a patriotic discourse, which wss
in tbe nature of a retrospect of the con
dition of society st the time of Washing
ton; a retrospect of the government of
Europe at that time, the whole tending to
show the difficulties of Washington's
undertaking, the difficulties that sur
rounded the father of bis country on
every band and what be accomplished,
