mons and also gave an Illustrated talk to
children and young people In the afternoon.
Quito a number have been added to the

congregation Is w > well pleased with the
services of Ilev. 'Mr. Venting that the
church baa extended a call to him to act
as Its regular raster. In tha last few years
ho has been occupied In evangelistic work ,
but ho had acted in tha capacity ot regular

good reasons to expect that , tha call will b
Ills sermon yesterday morning was on th
subject , "Thfco Links In a Golden Chain ,
Ills text was taken from Psalm xxvll , '
"One thing have I desired of the Lord , tha
will I seek after , that I may dwell In th
house of the Lord all the days of my lift
to behold the beauty ot the Lord and to In
quire In Ills temple. "
"Happiness Is the most desirable thing It
the world , " said the minister , "but ther
nrn many who seek after but do not obtat
It. Why do not all find happiness ? Becaus
flu Is in the world and hundreds and tlioti
sands of people arc blinded by It. Thcr
may bo a tinge of happiness In the picas
ures of sin , but < taic happiness is know
only to those who have learned to lov
Christ and enjoy , as ho desires , the bless
Ings of thlH world. I admit that there I
much pleasure to be gained by the thing
of this world , but where does It end ? Dark
ness Is all that can be expected and how ca
cnie bo truly happy with this prospec
"Some people conceive the Idea that the
can live perfect lives In this world , but m
own experience teaches me differently. Ther
Is a sort of supernatural light known b
the real Christian , and the nearer to Chris
he lives the brighter It shine ? , and his ow
Imperfections show plainer than ever be
fore. As little specks of dust appear 1
the pure sunlight , so shine the faults of
life of this world In the light of Christ.
"There are two desires In every bear
and by these desires the character can b
truly tested. Ho who , on being asked ho\
ho progresses In the Christian life , rcplle
that he Is advancing well and Is well satis
fled with his Christian experience , declare
very plainly that ho Is not progressing a
all and that he Is being satisfied with same
thing different from true Chrlstllness. H
who replies with tears and sobs that hi
life may bo some better than It was , but I
not what It should be , shows a sign of tru
progress , and wo can be sure that his ef
forts will not bo In vain.
RIGHT DESIRE HELPS US.
"A right deslro Is the chief ttny ot every
ipereon's life. If the desire Is right and
strong enough , the life will be right. Al
other qualities are connected with this prin
clplo trait , and it Is this particular part o
our mind that we should be the most par
ticular In educating correctly. It shoulc
bo our chief aim in life to learn to desire
that which Is good and If we make It eo
we are sure to succeed. It Is the one thlnj
In our nature , that cannot be counterfeited
Wo may make our outer lives to deceive , bu
the true desire manifests Itself In a way
that cannot be covered up. A desire tha
Is given of God for the good and pure things
of life is sure to return to him In some form
and our lives are better for It.
"Effort Is essential to a healthy Christian
life , and It will bo manifested In proportion
with our desire. During the time of ou
revolutionary war there was an Intense de
slro for freedom and the accomplishments
were great and lasting. Columbus had a
great deslro to discover a new route to
Asia , and facing the death that threatened
him from his crew , ho pushed on across
the trackless waters until ho accompllshei
something , a. | arently what he desired. I
Is the Inner life , or desire , that promotes
outward effort , and the life with ono deslro
cannot bo denied Its purpose. God never
answers prayers that we can answer for our
selves , and we can answer most of them 1
wo very greatly desire the thing prayed for
and put forth the effort te obtain It. Go ,
helps him who helps himself , and will crown
his every effort with success.
"The purpose of the psalmist , as shown by
the text , was one of the grandest possible
for human to attain to dwell In the houae
of God End behold his beauty. Through
faith wo see the beauty of God , and wo can
feel his presence. God gives beauty and wo
can see It on every side. How we arc drawr
to the beauties of nature. The birds singing ,
thu flowers blooming , the brooks wparkllnf
In the sunlight and the grand , majestic
sweep of the mighty rivers , all fill us with
m awe and inspiration Indescribable. God's
light , love and presence as" manifested In tbo
world ore exquisitely beautiful. When wo
behold man , by sin dragged to the depths ol
degradation and shame , restored to an hon
est , upright life by his grace , we gee God-
given beauty In a grander form. His grace
can beautify the best of our lives , and none
are so distorted and 111 Khapcn by sin but thai
they can bo restored by him. Let it bo the
purpose of our lives to acquire the highest
[ iegreo of godly beauty In our lives. May it
bo the deulro of every heart to dwell In the
liauao of the Lord , to behold lilt beauty and
to inquire in bis temple. "

PHILADELPHIA , > Feh,27. William M.
Slngcrly died suddenlyat lijs residence , 1701
Locust street , this afternoon. Heart ills-
ease was the Immediate cause of death ,
( Mr. Slngcrly had been suffcrlnR for about
ten days from a cold , and had remained at
home since last "Wednesday , although his
Indisposition was In no way serious. While
sitting In his bedroom smoking a cigar ho
was seized with a violent fit of coughing ,
and Immediately afterwards fell over dead.
In the room at the time were Mr. SltiEerly's
granddaughter , Miss 'Mabel ' Gingerly Mere
dith , and two servants , Ills son-in-law ,
James S. McCartney , had left a few mo
ments before the sudden end came , leaving
Mr. Slngcrly apparently in good health ,
apart from his slight cold.
The phjslclans say they had frequently
cautioned Mr. Slngcrly that his heart was
weak as a result of excessive smoking , and
ot late his custom was to take a "dry
smoke. " Today , however , his cigar was
lighted , and It Is thought that the smoke
brought on the coughing spoil , the severity
of which ruptured n vessel of the heart.

was one of the originators of the street rail

ORGANIZES A DANK.
In 1SS7 , upon the retirement of Governor
Pattlson from office , Mr. Slngerly took an
active part In establishing the CUcatnut
Street National bank , of which the ex-gov
ernor became the Aral president. Upon Me
Pattlson being called for a second time to
the governorship of Pennsylvania , Mr
Shigorly succeeded him as president of tbt
bank , and also became president of the Chest
nut Street Trust and Savings Fund company.
In seeking relaxation from the cares w
business , Mr. Slngcrly had for many years
taken a keeu Interest .In farming and ntock-
raising. Ills herds of Holstcln cattle at his
largo farm at Gwynodd , In Montgomery
county , were ft mous for years , and he was
also owner of the Elkton stock farm , near
Elkton , Cecil county.
Mr. Slngerly was always an active demo
crat. In 1894 he was mnanimoiu'ly ' made the
democratic candidate 'for ' governor of Penn
sylvania and entered -with great energy Into
the canvass , speaking > ln nearly every county
In the state. In all ho made over seventy
speeches In upholding the cause of democ
racy. The natural republican majority of
Pennsylvania was tooi great to be overcome ,
however , and his competitor , General Hast
ings , carried off the prlzo. .
During the last national campaign ho sup
ported the Palmer and Duckncr ticket , mak
ing a number of speeches In Its behalf In
Pennsylvania , Delaware and Maryland and
organizing a local association In aid of the
movement. Ho also took an .active part In
forming the Pennsylvania Bankers' asso

trust company and managers of a plan lookIng -
Ing to the liquidation of the affairs of both
institutions. Mr. Slngerly promptly turned
over to them every personal asset ho pos
sessed , including his Interest In the Ilecord.
Slnco then a receiver has been oppolntd
for the bank and the affairs of It and the
trust company are in process ot settlement.

ST. LOUIS. Feb. 27. Most of the magnates
who are expected to attcnj the annual meet
ing of the National league , which convene. ;
tomorrow at the Southern hotel , arp here ,
and the rest will arrive on tomorrow's early
President N. E. Young and tils son , Robert
II. Young , clerk of the national board , came
In tonight. The following league cities are
represented by their presidents Hoattn , A
H. Soden ; Hrooklyn , C. II. Ebbetts ; Washing
ton , George W. Wagner ; Philadelphia , A. J
Roach ; Chicago , James A. Hart ; Cincinnati ,
John T. Brush ; St. Louis. I ) , S. Muckcnfuaa
President Hanlon of Ilaltlniore , President
P. DoIIaas Robinson of Cleveland , President
H. C. Pulllan of Louisville and President W
H. Watklns of Plttuburg will bo here tomor
row. New York will not bo represented by
President Andrew Freedman , who has given
his nroxy to A. II. Sodcn of Beaton.
It Is the opinion of several ot the mem
bers that the bus I noes will keep the confcr-
< ncc In session for several das , and possibly
longer. The schedule , the drafting of uew
rules , especially abolishing rondy ball , the
appointment of a new chief of umpires and
the naming of a new staff of umpires are
a few of the Important matters that will
come up and be disposed ot during the pres
ent SCEi loM.
It Is expected that the rules abolish. ' * g
rowdy bait will cause a Img cad heated de
bate , and may lengthen the session. The
principal opponent of the proposed rule black
listing players for rowdy ball ploying is
Prcaldcnt Robinson of Cleveland , Ho has
been quoted as eay'ng that the magnates
r.cid not the players , were responsible for
rowdyism on the ball field. In a recent In
terview ho Is reported to have said :
iFor years we linvc'encournKttl plnyer.i to
adopt rough tactic * In our eagerness to win
Kiinies. OnO club bcfrnn It anil other * were
forced to follow. The lining by umpires ,
wns'but ' n .sham , as the club owners ii.ild
the lines. Now , after we have raised tlioo
players In this way , some of the leagui
magnates propose tliat , In order to weun
them lor their bait ImbltH , we give unijilre *
the pciAer to linve them blacklisted for a
violation of the now regulation ? . This Is
entirely unjust. The club owner should
share the punishment , because he Is moie
guilty than the plnyor.
I shall take the stand nt St. Louts that
for the llrst offense a player be 'suspended
thirty days without pay. That Is a severe
punishment for him , unil he would not CHIC
to take a chance 'on losing- another thirty
days' pay. At the same time It Is a punish
ment fort the owner , who loses the services
of a valuable player for thirty days.
1 believe that the rule placing1 so much
power In the umpires' hands Is extremely
ilnnRurous. They lire , Just as apt to 'go olt
the handle as a player ana vent their spite
on the players they do not like.
It lj also said to be President Robinson's
Intention to present a resolution requiring
each club president to sign a bond agreeing
to forfeit $5,000 If one ot his players Is
guilty of using foul language on iho ball
Ned Hanlon of Baltimore will be as
ardent a champion for the blacklist rule as
Robinson is an opponent.
President Young , who Is occupying Hit
room at the Southern hotel made historic
by Mark Hanna as his headquarters during
the republican national convention here In
1S90 , briefly outlined the work of the meet
ing. Ho said :
The board of 'arbitration will meet tomor
row morning nnd dispose of a large number
of minor matters 'coming' before It. The
regular meeting- the National league will
convene Monday evening- 8 o'clock , and
the llrst matter of Importance coming before -
fore it for action after the routine business
win ue inc playing sciiwiuie. inc IHVGUIIR
as usual will he held behind closed doors
and the proceedings will bo given out after
Following the schedule , the question of
now rules , the naming- the now chief of
umpires nnd bis assistants for the coming
season nnd the selection ofl a successor to
the late Charles H. Byrne , of Brooklyn on
the boanl of arbitration will be In order.
John T. 'Brush will present before the
meeting a proposition that the league aclop
some sort of a testimonial for Charles H
Byrne. Ho declined to say what this would

PHOENIX , Ariz , , Feb. 27. ( Special. ) The
Santa Fe , Prcscott & Phoenix Railroad com
puny has asked for bids for construction of
an extension of the line into the Big Bug
oynx district. The extension will be forty
miles In length , running from Prcscott to the
center of the Big Bug mining district. Tills
district Is very rich 'n all kinds of minerals ,
being especially noted for the hundreda cf
acres of oynx beds that are In It. This build
ing material has not gained much of a repu
tation throughout the country owing to the
fact that the wagon charges to get It out BO
Increase the price of It that It could not
compete with the other oynx In the market.
