about 10 o'clock the church services will
Want Everything Strictly Private.
The fnneral services here will undoubted'
ly be held in the East room. This is the
largest room in the White House, and in
fact the only one at all adapted to the hold
ing of -services even as private as those
which the family desire. And it is the spe
cial wisn or tne family that the services
shall be as private as possible. The funeral
will be a personal and not a public one. As
far as the official position of the president
will permit the services will be the same as
those customary in the case of a member of
a private family. Invitations will lie strict
ly limited in number, and no person will
be allowed to be present without them.
Messages of Snurpmthy.
Among the first messages of sympathy
received at the White House yesterday
and there were hundreds of them received
during the day was one from Queen Vic
toria, who said: "I have heard with the
deepest regret of your sad loss, and sincere
ly sympathize with you 4n your grief.
The telegram was signed "Victoria R. I.
Another early message was from ex Secre
tary Blaine and wife. It was contained in
an envelope, directed by Blaine himself,
but its'contents at this writing have not
been given out. Through Cardinal Gib
bons and Cardinal Rampollo the pope of
Rome also sent his "heartfelt condolence in
your present affliction." Mr. and Mrs.
Cleveland also sent condolence; also Vice
President Morton, Governor Chase; Judge
Martindnle, of Indianapolis; Governor Mc-
Klnley and a host of others.
Returned an Obligation in Kind.
Of course there were numerous callers at
the White House yesterday. Rey. Dr.
Hamlin was one, and he spent some time
with the president. Attorney General Mil
ler also called, and so did Secretary Tracy.
The secretary has never recovered from the
affliction be suffered in tne tragic death of
his wife and he knew well the feelings of
the grief -stricken man to whom he came to
tender condolences, as the president and
Mrs. Harrison bad done to him so tenderly
and thoughtfully in his own great bereave
ment. The president is bearing up re
markably well in bis deep affliction. He
and the other members of the family are
bravely enduring the strain on them, and
their grief, though painfully evident, is
Took "Old Glory" Down. .
! The Hag-stair on the v hlt-e House was
bare yesterday morning. The familiar
stars and stripes which waved over the
president's house Monday had been lowered
at sunset, furled and placed aside. Yester
day morning the ahsence or the flag was
noticed. Halford explained that the presi
dent was averse to having it placed at half
mast, so it waseletermined, rather than have
It flying as nsuul.to refrain from displaying
It at all nntil after the body shall have
been taken away from here, when it will
again be raised. The public buildings are
open and the flags at half mast are the
only public indications of the death in the

At the request, of Ir. Hamlin, Rev. Dr.
Bartlett, of the New York Avenue Presby
terian churrh, will assist in the services at
the White House tomorrow morning. Dr.
Bartlett was pastor of the Second Presby
terian church. Indianapolis, previous to
coming t Washington, and a neighbor of
the president's family. At the funeral of
the wife and daughter of Secretory Tracy
in the White House Mrs, Harrison was
much impressed by the singing of Cardinal
Newman's hymn " Iead Kindly Light" by
the choir of St. John s church, and often
fipoke of it. The choir will tie present at
the services and repeat the hymn.

Baltimore, Oct. 26. The most satis

Protestant Episcopal church, because of
its results, adjourned last night after a
three week's session. The last day of the
convention was spent ' in clearing up mis
cellaneous business Two of the bishops
who were appointed to missionary jurisdic
tions last : Friday Rev. Dr. Jas. H. John
son, of Detroit, for Northern Michigan, and
Rev. Dr. J. R. Hoyt, of Iowa, for China
declined, and others were appointed. These
were Rev. Dr. Wru. Heed Thomas, of New
York, for Northern Michigan, and Rev.
Dr. F. P. Graves, of Woo Chang, for
China. Dr. Thomas has been rector of
Holy Inuocent's chtfroh;-' Highland Falls.
X. Y., for twVnty years, and is archdeacon
of Orange county. Dr. Graves is .now and
has been for many years missionary to
China. The:ie men were elected by the
bishops and their election was confirmed
by the deputi.-s.
Sent a Message of Sympathy.
The tirst business of the deputies was to
instruct President Dix to send a message of
sympathy to President Harrison. Rev. Dr.
R. II. McKira, of Washington, submitted
the resolution providing "That the presi
dent of this house be requested to convey to
the president of the United States, in such
manner as he may deem most fitting, the
expression of our sincere and respectful
sympathy in the bereavement which has
darkened his home and his heart." This
was adopted by a unanimous rising vote.
Rev. Herman C. Dunham, secretary of the
Christian Unity commission, submitted
the commission's report to the deputies.
Much progress was reported and the com
mission was continued to conferwith all sim
ilar commissions for the restoration of the
unity of the church.
Closing Business of the Session.
A conference committee agreed to
and the two houses adopted a resolution to
change the title of assistant bishop to bish
op coadjutor. At the meeting of the board
of missions Bishop Coxe, of western New
l ork, made an appeal for the support of
church work in Greece. Rev. Mr. Gailor,
of the committee on conference on the di
vision of Tennessee, reported that the bish
ops would not agree to the division of that
diocese, and that the whole matter had
fallen to the ground. He thanked the
deputies for the interest they had taken in
the matter and for their vote in favor of di
vision. On motiou of Judge Bennett, of
Massachsetts, the proposed new canons on
marriage and divorce were referred to the
next convention, together with all matters
upon which action had not been had. Nu
merous resolutions of thanks for courte
sies, etc., were adopted and the business
PASTORAL OF,Tfl BISHOPS.
The Revised Prayer '. Book Approved-
Ordination and Marriage.
The pastoral letter, read by Bishop
Thompson, of Mississippi, at last night's
thanksgiving service gives a resume of the
work accomplished by the convention and
enters largely into recommendations for the
conduct of church work pending the meet
ing of the next general convention three
years hence. The pastoral letter is in part
as follows: "We ask you to join us in
thanksgiving to our gracious God that a
great and serious work which has engaged
the church for many years has been com
pleted and closed in the convention of 1992,
and that the Book of Common Praver, re
vised, amended and enriched by the labors
of learned and godly men, has now, after
awful consideration by liotb houses of
this convection, been constitutionally set
forth for the use of the church. It would
le idle to claim perfection for the prayer
book. Xo human work is perfect.
The I'nit.v of Christendom.
"For many years the thoughts and pray
ers of your bishops .have been greatly occu
pied with the unhappy divisions among
hnstian people. The evils of these divis
ions are becoming daily more apparent.
The church stands for unity. Let her chil
dren banish all narrowness and prejudices,
-all pride and coneeit. Unity will come as
a crown of victory; hot to--theological strife
but Christian love. We have very gravely
considered the canons concerning ordina
tion and the due preparation of candidates
for the sacred ministry. The door of the
priesthood should Ik? eveu more carefully
guarded in the time to come than hereto
fore. The Sanctity of Marriage.
'Our brethren of the clergy should re
member that the foremost and most bind
ing of all their duties is to 'preach the gos
pel.' the tirnt command in our commission.
A living church must be a preaching and
teaching church. It is with sad foreboding
that all Christian people must see how the
sanctify and iernianeney of the marriage
bond has lieen outraged and broken by the
lawless legislation of so many of our states.
The church of God can have no regard for
i-uch legislation; it has no more respect
or validity in her consciousness than the
legislation ou the same subject of Turkey
or the customs of Dahomey."
