cially to the grammar schools of the
county, and a prize was given to the
school having the highest percentage
of their attendance present, which
prize was secured by the Pala school,
of which a young lady of the United
Presbyterian congregation. Miss Ruby
Anderson, is principal.
Special evenings were given to stu
dents of the High School, the State
Normal School and of the College of
the Pacific.
Patriotic Day was appropriately
celebrated, and Dr. Biederwolf gave
two of the strongest temperance ad
dresses San Jose has ever listened to.
As a partial rsult. at least, the county
of Santa Clara voted dry in the re
cent election.
The choir social and the sacred con
cert were very enjoyable and events
long to be remembered. The people
of San Jose have certainly been re
freshed and revived mentally, mor
ally and spiritually through the in
strumentality ot' the Biederwolf meet
ings. The singing was grand. The
choir was highly commended and ap
preciated for its devotion and effi
ciency, the faithfulness of which was
spoken of as a factor in the success
of the meetings. The orchestra was
also quite a feature. Many walked
the sawdust aisles to shake hands with
Mr. Biederwolf. Pledge cards were
given them to sign.
While the Biederwolf party conced
ed that a meeting of great power had
been held and a great work had been
accomplished, they realized that local
hindrances prevented the results from
being as great as they might have
been. They have been accustomed to
larger and better results in other

The number of converts is esti
mated to be about one thousand. The
expenses of the entire meeting were
about $ 15,000, whereas similar meet
ings usually* cost about $13,000.
The evangelists realized that San
Jose is a hard place to work in and
said they had much sympathy for
the pastors in their difficult field of
A high standard for the churches
was emphasized. Mr. Biederwolf is
worthy of commendation for speaking
strongly against the introduction into
the churches of anything of a worldly
nature; he said that the Church is
bringing too much of the world into
it and stooping too much to the things
of the world.
In general the work was very sat
isfactory; it was not all that we could
have hoped for, but it was well worth
the effort and expense, and the moral
and spiritual life of the city lias re
ceived a decided uplift. ? United Pres
