All of tlie law halls of the structure were
srowdi'd, Hiid the deliverances of the vari
ous eminent men that figured upon the
programme were listened to with rapt at
tention. On., of the most interesting nd
flresse was that of Rev. Alfred W.
Jlomerie, a inemlier of the Anglican com
Jtmnioa of the ''Uroiid" church party, of
London, who spoke upnn the hilosopliioal
and moral evidences of God. Ho took the
ground tha! science hud proved not that
there was a lack of purpo.su in the crea

and intense purpose.
Alunlant fcviilenre of a Creator.
There were evidences in abundance of
the world's d;-p ndence upon one Rreat
luiuii, .;nd Vij-oi: tlie uni-eusiii activity of
an infinite thinker. The most certain
tiling in science was evolution, nnd this
demonstrated that uiiliculties of civiliza

Much in the same line was tlie address
of K.-.bbi Isaac X. Wise, who discussed the
question from the standpoint of Judaism.
Heaumitrecl t hat philosophyhad not proven
the existence of a liod, yet there were dog
mas in tin; human n.ind that had existed
therefrom the beKinninR, and one was
that there existed a supreme being of in
finite power. Keason could not reach these
dogma-, yet they were transcendent truthH
and existed in spite of all. Professor M.
Valentine regarded Judaism as the early
stages of unfolding Christianity, and em
phasized the fact that ail the historic faiths,
save lluddhism, which bordered on the
nthei -tic, were based on the belief in the
existence of a supreme being.

In the meetings where particular lieliefs
were considered the Hon an Catholics led
in the distinction of their speakers. Arch
bishop Ireland said the church of Kome
adapted herself to all epochs, but she was
the selfsame church teaching the same
truths nnd doctrines in the essential
elements of her administration. There
were two sources of knowledge man's
reason and God's reelation but there
was no contiadiction between them, the
same God being author of both. X'either
was there a contest between the church
Archbi.diop Chappelle, of Asia Minor,
spoke on the divine constitution of the
church of Home. From tho beginning she
had been full of grace and truth. She be
came all things to all men, but ever pre
sented the same gospel. The testimony of
", years would bear him out in saying
thitt th'; church was a good tree which
brought forth good fruit. The dry
branches and rotten fruit did not belong
to her. lie expounded the doctrine of the
ininiacuiatuconception and of infallibility.
The history of the Catholic church had
been in the past and would be in the future
the history of the truth.
The history of the Lutheran church, the
liberty it allows, and its educational feat
ures, were tlie principal topics dealt upou
in the hall assigned to that denomination.
A "home symposium" was the feature of
the day session of the Congregational
church congress, tho proceedings being
inaugurated by the singing of "Home,
Sweet Home" by a band of little ones.
Only ladies figured upon the programme.
They discussed the elfect of a Christian,

and reasoned it out that as the stale was
