Preliminary Addresses World's Fair
Chicago, Sept. 12. A processional in
which the religions of the 'world were rep
resented signalized the opening of the
World's Parliament of Religions at the
Art institute. It was a processional that
had a world of meaning in it; one that
would have been impossible not many
years ago. Jew marched with Gentile
and Roman Catholic with Protestant.
The religious beliefs of India, of China,
and of Japan were represented, as well as
those of the .English-speaking nations.
All attired in their priestly robe and
wearing the insignia of their office
marched in peace and fellowship to the
platform, while the audience rose and
cheered at the sight. First came Cardinal
Gibbons escorted by President Bonney.
Then came Mrs. Potter Palmer and Mrs.
Charles Henrotin, representing the board
of lady managers.
Some Elements of the Procession.
There were following in the procession
an archbishop of Zantc, Greece; a Metho
dist minister from Chicago; a Roman
Catholic archbishop of Chicago; several
Lutherans from Germany and Sweden;
two or three East Indian Brahmins and
Buddhists; a Chicago Presbyterian clergy
man; a Chinese Buddhist; s Chicago Israel
ite; a couple of Bombay theologians, and,
in fact, the most heterodox line of religion
ists ever seen since the world begun. As
this remarkable parade reached the hall
the audience rose and joined in singing
"Praise God from Whom All Blessings
Flow," a hymn that, as it acknowledges
the Christain doctrines of the Trinity, was
hardly appropriate in such a gathering.
The Prayer of All Who ltoliove in God.
The next thing on the programme was
more universal than the hymn. Cardinal
Gibbons led the heterodox gathering in
prayer and the petition he put up was the
"Lord's Prayer," and there was not one
of those present who could not, whether
he did or no, join in the prayer. For the
Mohammedan, the Buddhist, the Brah
min, all of whom were present, believe in
a supreme being. The scene was a novel
one, for many of the visitors from the Ori
ent were clad in their native costumes,
the. prelates in some instances in their
robe of office. There was not a vacant
seat in the hall and many '"Wcrestandlng
against the walls and in other places
where a view of the platform could be
, The Versatile President Uonney.
There is one man connected with these
World's fair congresses who has hardly
had the credit that he deserves, and that
is President Bonney. Beiug the head of
these gatherings to this gentleman has
fallen the duty of welcoming the various
bodies which have met under the auspices
of the World's Auxiliary. He has Lad
to speuk to vrovi.-in suffragists, spirit
ualists, civil rnyineers, social reformers
of nil kinds, r.iul in fact to the believers in
or agitators of everything that is current
in the world of progress. And he has
shown a versatility of speech tnat has
enabled him to ppeuK to them all in such
a manner as to tell them "what they were
there for" without .making a single mis
take. Every one of his brief addresses has
been felicitous and just what the occasion
How Re Talked to Heterodoxy.
And in addressing this congress prob
ably the one in addressing which it was
the easiest to say something that would
rankle he was especially happy. He said
In brief that they should all give thanks
for being able to take part in so grand a
congress, one that so lully exemplified
peace and progress, and which would have
so great an influence on the world. After
reviewing the programme of the congress,
he welcomed all in the name of the
brotherhood of religion.
Iter. John Henry Burrows, chairman of
the committee on organization, then ad
dressed the congress. He said that never
before had such a congress been under
taken, and not long ago it would have
been deemed impossible to carry it to suc
ROMAN CATHOLIC WELCOME.
Feehan and Gibbons Greet the Religion
ists of All the World.
Archbishop Feeli.m followed, welcoming
the delegates on behalf of the Roman
Catholic church. He said that the as
sembly was cne unique in the history of
the world. Learned men had come from
all countries to speak and to tell us of
those things that were of the greatest in
terest to all of God, of his truth and
justice, of his worship, of peace, and of
mercy. No matter how we might differ
in religion there was one thing that was
common to us all, and that was our com
mon humanity. The archbishop wel
comed the delegates in his own name and
in all that he represented.
Cardinal Gibbons had to leave early, so
his response to the addresses of welcome
was called for out of its order. He said
that though all did not agree on matters
of faith, there was one platform on which
all were united, that was charity, human
ity and benevolence. He spoke of the
Good Samaritan who bound up the wounds
of a man who was his enemy in religion
and in social life, and said that that was
the example we ought to follow. He said
that he could not impress too strongly on
every one that each was his brother's keep
er. That was the whole theory of 'human
ity. If Christ had cried with Cain, "Am
I my brother's keeper?" we would still be
walking in darkness.
Rev., Augusta J. Chapin welcomed the
congress on behalf of woman. The par
liament of religions, she said, waa the
grandest and most significant gatheriug
that had ever been assembled on this
.irth. President Higinbotham, of the
Columbian exposition, jjiext welcomed the
delegates ou beTialf o the- World's fair.
He said it was a source of great satisfac
tion that a new city in a far part of the
world should be accorded the honor of
these congresses. They were the greatest
honor of the World's fair year.
Kev. Alexander McKenzie, the next
speaker, said that he supposed that every
one who spoke stood for something and
he stood for the old settlers, the Puritans.
There was one thing that we could show
the foreigners that could be seen nowhere
else in the world, and that was a repub
lic that was in the process of making by
Christian forces. There was a religious
motive in the founding of it, and it was
that, he thought, that made it proper to
speak of it at this time. The parliament
of religions, he said, was really begun on
Plymouth rock and had been growing in
importance ever since until now every re
ligion on earth was represented in the
The speaker on the programme was
greeted with such applause as was Pung
Qunng Yu, secretary of the Chinese lega
tion at Washington. Iu introducing him
Mr. Bonney spoke of the treatment
that some of his countrymen had received
in this country, but in spite of which the
emperor of China had sent a delegate in
a Christian spirit to this congress. Near
ly half of the people in the hall rose and
cheered and waved their handkerchiefs
as the delegate advanced to the front ol
Prince Wolhousky, of Russia, followed
with a tribute to the congresses. He
spoke of a Roman Catholic prelate ad
dressing the Jews and said that it was a
magnificent scene that could be seen only
in this age.
Other addresses were made during the
day by Rt. Rev. Reucbe Shibata, of Japan:
Rev. Pr. Burrows, of this city; Archbishop
Redwood, of Xew Zealand: H. Dharma
pala, of India; V. A. Shandi, of Bombay,
a "Janist;" Minas Scherez, an Amenian
editor; Professor Chakravazti.Theosophist,
of India; Miss Jeanne Saralbi, of Bombay,
and Bishop Arnett. All the addresses
were of the same tenor as those the point
of which has been given.
AT THE WORLD'S FAIR GROUNDS.
Kansas, the Silver Men, Colorado and
Maryland at the Park.
Chicago, Sept. 12. There was a slight
falling off in attendance at the fair yester
day from that of a week before, the total
paid admissions reaching 100,010, more
than 1,000 less than Sept. 4. But the at
tractions of the week should succeed in
more than rivaling in admissions those ol
last week. Kansas has this whole week
for her celebration, but did only prelimi
nary work yesterday.
Silver day was duly inaugurated yester
day at Music hall at Jackson park, and
was a success, and the day will be long re
membered ar one of the most pleasing in
cidents of the great exposition. Rev. Dr.
Prince, of Xew Mexico, who delivered the
opening address, touched bnt gingerly on
the financial problem with which the
name of the white metal is so inseparably
connected. He alluded, indeed, more to
the position it assumed in the industrial
arts, and warmly welcomed the delegates
present in a speech which was a singularly
happy diplomatic effort. He was followed
by A. J. W arner, of Washington; C. S.
Dougherty, of Texas; Charles S. Thomas,
of Colorado; Governor Waite, and several
other silver men.
Today Colorado is celebrating and it is
Army of the Tennessee day. The formal
exercises in the Kansas building took
plnce, aud Governor Leweliing responded
to the welcoming address. This afternoon
there is a concert by the Modoc club. At
the Colorado celebration Governor Waite
made u speech. Governor Brown, of Mary
iand, was the lion of Maryland day, the
formal exercises being held at Music hall
At noon the final ceremony of turning
over to the World's fair directory the

tertained at lunch and escorted to the
train that takes them to Xew York.
Hereafter press passes to the fair will be
issued only to those adjudged entitled to
them by President Higinbotham, President
Palmer and Director General Davis.
Complimentaries will only go to
official personages or very prominent
civilians, and this matter is left to the

school board, explains that the Roman
Catholics insisted on having all Roman
Catholics for teaehers in the parochial
building, and the board decided to have
but two Roman Catholic teachers there, so

cancelled and no public school will be
