able people, who in
the retirement of Lent worried ovsrdress
makers.aud milleners audsometimes over
their pocket books were out in numbers.
The annual display of finery was equal to
that of former Easters, and was all that
the most inveterate Easter day sight seer
could desire.
Long before the church bells began to
ring the sidewalks were Riled with peo
ple in spring dresses and new spring
suits. Light derbys and flower-decked
oonnets sat jauntily on oit-nodded heads.
Winter wraps were wholly discarded and
sprinii oven-eats were worn ou the arm.
Hull stiet-:, hall an hour before church
time, was a passing show. Everybody
went early to church to see bow every
body looked. The newest tiling in hats,
the latest colors in gloves and the fashion
nble cut in trousers were ail out, aud
everybody wore Easter flowers. Richly
dressed ladies displayed corsage bou
quets that betokened a oad havoc in flower
garden and florists’ shop.
“What a blessing It’s a fine day,’’ re
marked a gentleman who as watching
Nile people as they passed along, eyeing
each otuer wllb feelings shaded all the
way from admiration to envy. “’Spose

J Everybody wanted to see the deoora
iyps ol course, aud young ladies in
iretty new bonnets sweetly begged the
kshers for tront seats so that they could
ice, “you know.” Young men stood up
irouud the doors for tear of wrinkling
heir new pantaloons, and held their new
lerbys as if they thought somebody was
[olng to snatch them out ot their hands.
After the morning services ware over,
instead of closing the doors immediately,
is usual, toey were left open to enable
people who wished to see the flowers
n other churches besides their own, and
lundreds took advantage of the oppor
tunity that was offered.
All of the ohurohes where Easter ser
vices were held were crowded. The dec
orations everywhere were elaborate.
Roses, ol course, predominated, but the
beautiful lily scarce tnougb it ie, shed
its iragrance here and there trom torn
and altar and pulpit. In the Episcopal,
Lutheran and Roman Catholic churches
•be floral displays wire greater than
auywbereelse. More attention was given
to musio than on former Easters and elab
choral programmes were rendered
'u of the churches.
St. John’s Church.
Long before Bt. John’s chimes had
ceased ringing for the morning service
the church was thronged. The floral
decorations were superb. The rich altar
vestments in themselves formed a beauti
ful decoration. A magnificent Frontal,
Fupenrontal and Dossei, with arab-squo
decorations, the Easter gift of a lady
member ol the obuioh, vested the altar
and reredoe. Rising from the superaliar
was a magnificent cross ot wnlie roses.
The chancel rail was trimmed with ever
greens, studded with red and white roses
and rare flowers wore scattered through
the chancel wherever it was possible to
arrange them. Tue pulpit and leoturn
■were built up with beautuul XTadeils. The
baptismal font was almost buried under
S bed ol roses. From the basin tall lilies
waved gracefully and mingled their
tweet peruana with that of the (vagrant
Marectial Neils. The decorations, al
though perhaps not so elaborate as some,
were among the finest ever seen iu the
'J lie music was by St. John’s quartette
choir, Mr. P. H. Ward, director; Mrs. L.
Haynes, soprano; Mrs. I*. H. Ward, alto,
and Mr.W. C. King, basso. The anthem,
•’Christ, Our i’assover,” and Holden’s
effertory anthem, “The Risen Lord,”
were grandly rendered. 'J'ne (estiva!

Christ. Church.
The services at Christ church were at
tended by an unusually large congrega
tion. While the decorations were not
elaborate they were tasty and beautiful.
The chief piece was a floral bed of red
wed white roses suspended across the
east window at the back of the chance!.
In the middle of ihe design wrs the sym-
I olioal monogram, I. U. S„ and a crosu
At either end were trian
gular figures in green with
smaller designs pendant from them.
The font was oiled with white roans,and a
large white cross stood near the front of
♦be ehaocel. A buautltui floral harp was
ihe only other important design audit
was a memorial.
The music was grandly rendered, the
soprano, tenor and buss (icing in excellent
voice. The most conspicuous feature ot
the ptogratiiLW' was the singing ot the
‘‘King all Glorious” by the double quar
tette choir. In tbe other selections the
singers also acquitted themselves bril
liantly; certainly all sang intelligently
and well. The singing of the trio bv
.Nicolao as an oliertory was artistic in the
highest degree. The parts were sus
tained by Mrs. Postell, Messrs. Huuler
and V alter. For tunal beauty, accuracy
at intonation aud retinsd expression It
was conspicuous. During the finely
modulated anu sonorous voicing of this
Inspiring piece all Ptlt the devotional en
thusiasm of the hour.
Kev. Thomas Uoone, the rector, read for
his text M. Duke XXIV, and 7: “Hein
not here but is risen; remember pow be
spuko unto you when tic was yet in
tiaiih e. saying the Hon ol man must lie
delivered int i the bands of sinful men,
ond lie crucified and the third dav rise
audio,” "I he resurrection of Jesua Christ
was entirely ddlsi. m from anything tbat
bad ever nappeneu before,’’said the rector,
‘Though It has been doubted. It is an hie#
toiksi fact. Christ was even to cat aid
1 drink aud made himself manifest alter
the resurrection, and these facts were
testified to by over 500 people who saw
him at one time. < bust’s resurrection
was a glorious victory, it gave certainty
to our faith, and through the resurrection
came tho gilt of justification.
“The resnrreuiion,” he continued,
i “carries on to completion tno
work of salvation, the first
part of wbxli, redemption, had
been purchased on the cross. If man will
co-operate with the work of God tlua vic
tory of Christ’s wili be repeated. As
Christ toso again from the dead,
so shall wo rise agaiu. First
wo must rise with him spiritually.
We must riso aud walk iu the new life,
toe greatest help towaid which is the
blessed and holy oommuuion. 7he church
desires all who are worthy to participate
in the communion—those who cun do so
with repentance and faith in the promise
of God. The profane man must break off
his profanity, the drunkard uis excessive
drinking, the impure uiau his impurity,
for only t-fii. pure in heart oan set* God.”
The holy communion was celebrated at
the close of lire sermon.
The Cathedral,
At tho Cathedral of Our Lady of Per
petual Help the services were magnifi
cently given. Crowds were at the early
masses. The tapers glimmered in golden
candelabra among wreaths and bouquets
of rich flowers upon the iace of the beau
tiful marble altar and about the taberna
cle. The altar ol the Blessed Virgin was
bedded in roses, and tall lilies waved
gracefully above tlio sacred shrine. I’ho
services be-.:an with early mass at 0:30
o'clock. At tf :3t> another was said, and
at 10:30 o’clock tue solemn pontifical
mass was celebrated by liisnop Beefier.
The caorus choir, under direction o- Air.
H. J. Winkers, aud l'rot. L. Mehrteus,
organist, with lull orchestral accompa
niment, rendered Le Hrevost’a “lUesse
Solenuelie.” T his work is La I’revost’s
chief de ouvre, but Is not a generally
popular composition. The most etleoiive
effort was tho singing of the “Gloria in
Excelsis,” in which ail the parts were
well sustained. The excellent singing of
tne offertory “Veni Creator,” by Jlrs.
Tyuau, added au element of beauty to
the choral service.
Thu choruses wore particularly
fine. Mrs. McArthur, Mrs. Ty
nan, Airs. Gaudry, the Aliases
Nolan and Messrs. Sulns, Gay and
Nolan wero the soloists. Air. H. J. Winfi
ers occupied the post ol director, and
discharged the important duties very
satisfactorily. Ai 4o’ Tools vespers wero
sung. Tne groat Cathedral was thronged
at ali the services. In tue morning Vicar
General Cafferty preached a forcible ser
mon upon the resurrection of our Lord.
St, PiUriolt’H Church.
At St. I’atrick’s early masses were said,
and at 10 o’clock high mass was cele
brated by Her. Father Bazin, assisted by
Rev. Father Quinlan. The ohoir, under
the direction of Maj. J. F. Brooks, con
sisted of the Misses O’Byrne and Cooley,
Mre. J. F. Qronan, and Messrs. Rebarer,
O’Byrne and Daniels, with Miss 11 arty
tejeal’s mass was sung. The produc
tion throughout was well rendered,
notably the solo pans, the dust
by Messrs. liebarer and M. A.
O’Byrae, being especially well ren
dered. Father Bazin officiated and
Father Quinlan preached the sermon. At
4 o’clock, Rose wig’s Vespeis were given
by the same choir. Holden’s O Salt: tar is
was sung by Mr. liebarer in excellent
style, as wus also the solo In Burges
Tautum Krgo by Ma.j. Brooks. Altogether
the music rendered was of a quality and
selection rarely exoelled In this church.
The beaulitui marble altar uud the side
altars were decked with llowers, and
during the ceiebi anon of the mass they
were brilliantly lighted. Rev. Father
Quinlan preached an elective sermon. /
The Lutheran Church.
Ho place of divine worship was more
thronged than the Evaugeiicat Lutheran
Cburoh of the Ascension. Easter at this
church is always marked by large at
tendance and striking floral decorations.
Yesterday was no exception.
The chancel was a beautiful picture,
which instantly won the admiration of
the spectator. In the foreground was an
immeusc arch of green, trimmed with
wulte and roses. Lookiug through it one
saw a lull-rigged ship on a storm-tossed
sea. Faint rajs oi light wore breaking
through the clouds, and the storm seemed
to have passed, leaving the sea still tem
pestuous and the waves white-capped.
The ship’s hull was of pure, white roses,
with the water Hue, the ports and bow
sprit of red roses. White and red roses
were combined in the masts. Toe snip
looked to be o leet or more In length, and
was a handsome piece in cut flowers. On
the arch wero the words “Hallelujah and
Christ.” At the base ot one column was
an anchor and at the base of tne other a
cross in cut roses. The tout was a
mass of roses and a large
cross stood upon the altar rail,
which was lestooned with green, the loops
beiug caught up with knots of roses. The
whole made a most beautilul and artistic

Independent Presbyterian Church.
In accordance with the customary
simplicity oi ritual in the Independent
Tresbyterian church, there was no at
tempt at decoration beyond a bright and
glowing plateau of flowers that filled and
overflowed the baptismal font. Beside
the hymus sung by ihe. whole congrega
tion, the old Easier hymn of Dr. Morgan
| was sung by a semi-chorus of soprauos
with “Hallelujah” in lull chorus.
Dr. Bacon’s sermon was Inunded on the
text in I. Corinthians iv, “If Christ be
not risen, your laith is vain, ye are yet in
your sins. If in this life only wo have
j hope in Christ, we are of all men most.

so beautiful or so conitoi ting; tbat if it is

Wesley MouuuiruUl Church.
Faster was celebrated at the Wesley
.Monumental churob. The pulpit and
altar were benutifully decorated with
flowers nnd the services were commemo
rative of tha resurrection. The pastor,
Rev. A. M. Wvnn, preached an im
pressive Easter sermon on the subject,
“Christ’s Resurrection, the Keystone of
the Christian Temple,” from the text,
“And If .Christ bo not raised your faith is
vain. Ye are yet Jn your sins,” etc. * *

“With rejoicing hearts and grateful
love vve greet this bright Easter morniug.
Eignteen hundred and tilty-four years
ago to-day was the gladdest day earth had
ever seen, as the day preceding was the
dnriceat. Earth and nature and all their
forces seem iu sympathetic harmony with
the glorious event, as they hurst forth in
bud and flower and vernal verdure. It
ought always to be a glad day, for ‘now
Is Christ rlson from the dead.’ The key
stone of our temple of hope and salva
tion is raised amidst exultant shouts.
On Christ’s resurrection all bingos—our
lalth in tho Bible, and its revela
tions, the great redemption plan,
and the tact that we are not ‘yet

Ctirlst verities and demonstrates all the
grand doctrines of Christianity; proves
and publishes tne truth and importanoe
of the religion of the Bible; accredits IDs
claim to the taitu and obedience of all;
removes lorever the shame, defeat anil
overthrow ol the Cross; proves Christ to
he Ruler and Judge; asserts the efficacy
and completeness ol Christ’s great atoiie
nioot, and renders certain our own resur

“St.l'aul was intensely conscious of the
magnitude of tbs interest at stake. Lear
not, he said, to meet tho issue boldly.
In tho presence of the crucifixion and its
attending marvels, with all tbs taots in
men’s minds fresh, he makes his grand
argument with masterly skill and effea
li’.eness, boldly challenging all enemies
ot the Cross to assail it, if they can, show
ing what must follow if this keystone of
the Gospel structure is destroyed, viz :
“Christ’s life, deatu, resurrection and

swept away If Christ was not ‘raised
according to the Scriptures,’ and there
was no prophetic ‘Messiah,’ no histori

iiis own resurrection to friends and toes,
and his enemies understood and tried to
make the sepulchre seoure. If Uis pre
diction tailed He was an impostor and
his claims false.
“His disciples preached boldly in the
presence of death a ‘risen Saviour,’ a-* a
lundaineutai fact, ol which tney were eye
witnesses. Now, ii Christ had not risen
they were publicly convicted as false wit
nesses and their whole scheme untrue.
“But.” asked the preacher, “did Christ
then rise from :lie dead? Is the tact cer
tainly attested ? That Ho lived and that
Ho died, all believe, all admit, friends
and ioes, tbsu and now. That the third
morning the grave was empty all testify.
That He was removed by iriends or ene
mies, or that He did by Divine power rtse
Irom the dead must one or the other lie
true. His iriends could not from the
very nature of the iacts have removed
Him. His enemies ould not. Then he
must have risen, as He said. Tuen, again,
030 living witnesses saw him alive
alter his resurrection who had known
him intimately and testified to the tact at
the peril of their lives. The world has
accepted it as a fact ever since, in spite
ot all the efforts ol infidels in their as
saults. Then Jesus rose again, ascended
to qcuven, atifl will come agaiu.
The preacher said in closing, “Let us
'tell it out, herald it to the uttermost
parts of the earth on this glad day. Tho
angels who came to w itness it said to the
wcaping, bewildered women, ‘He is not
here, he is risen as he said, go quickly
and tell his disciples.’ The risen Lord
said to them, ‘ali hail. Do not afraid, go
tell my brethreu.’ Then, iriends of Jesus,
let all this reconcile us to the afflictions
and sorrow and darkness of earth. Let
us live less in tombs. Let us recollect we
live and die in hope or our own resurrec
tion and heayenly home.”
St. Stephen's Church.
At St. Stephen’s church for colored
people the decorations were very band
some, and the music and services were
impressible. At the moralng service the
rector, Rev. J. J. Andrew, preached a
forcible Easter sermon, and the holy
..communion was celebrated. Last night
the Sunday school held its Easter festi

and singing “Welcome, liapny Morning.”
it was a beautiful sight as luuy marched
itowu through tbe aisles, their bright,
happy lacr-s wreathed in Easter smiles.
ihe church wus crowded long betore
the service began. The pews opening on
the main aisle were reserved, but even
then there was hardly room enough for the
school, ami tbe little ones were crowd, and
ami paused in su closely that they looked
almost as il they were grown together.
I he decorations were the same as ut tbo
