" Now, everbody charget Da your bostl" shouted Commander Uooth-Tncker. Three hundred knives flashed In the nlr, three hundred months opened wide, nnd tbrco hun dred sets of teeth, more or less Impaired, " charged" as commnnded. It was nn Inspiring collection of appetites. Tho headquarters of the Salvation Array was full of llirm. Fifteen hundred Incarnated ap petites ready for action! The commander did not need to ropeit his lnjunotlon.to"chnrg." For weeks tho soldiers of the army hats been scouring thn ton n for provisions. First they put nut placards in front of headquarters an nouncing that "one hnndrea turkeys" were needed, then "sevcnty-flve turkeys" were nredod, and day by day the number dwindled until day before josterdnythe announcement read, " thirty turkeys needed." in tho mean time 1,800 tickets to the feast wr.ro distributed. Most at them went to the tinements. In spite of the 1,200 tickets Issued, there wero yet cot nearly enough to bo around. Hundreds of men applied for tickets which were not forthcoming. Yesterday morning the bin hall at the head quarters was full before 11 o'clock. There was to bee. welcomo meeting from 11 until IS, and a thousand men tat through It. It was a no ticeable thine that a large proportion of them were not bad-looking fellows. The old " round ers" were In a great minority. Many of tho men wore clothes which wore Indeed rusty and threadbare, but which epoko of hotter days. They wero hard upbut they were not toughs. The platform supplied a steady programme. The band played, and tho soldiers exhorted, and the drum applauded, boom I booml and everybody encored Adjutant Taylor when ho sang a song to the tuno of "Just Tell Them That You Saw Me." Just tell my desr old mother thst my nandertm day areoer. Just Ml Iit Hint my sins are all forgiven. Just tell lior that It ffu should chance oa earth to meet no more, . . . . Uy sln ant t ardone t anil wo 11 meet In heaven. That was the chorus, nnd It seemed to hit the fancy or touch the heart-of tho audience. They were In a melting mood when Commander EootL-Tucker gut up nnd made a fifteen minute talk w liich helped the hands of the clock to got over tho last quarter of nn hour. '1 hen Major Wlnchell, who had charge of tho dining room, announced that thoy were, ready to seat about S00 people for tho first relay, and ho asked all the women In tho hnll to cntno forward and go down thentnlrcuse to which he pointed For once In '.hi lr live, n thousand nnd more men wished thnt the) wero women. Mnjor H Inchell Introduced Mr. Duffy to help him invite. This wns quite unnecessary. One invitation was enough for tho whole crowd. However, the) ltstcnid patientl) to another ' one. Mr. Ititt de-erved their distinguished I consideration. Ho Is n commission merchant. nd ntijlxid) Intending to give adluuor party to a thousand mult will And him Hu .ilunble. For Instance, when tho smoke cleared away after the first attack on the entables.lt wan found thnt '.lie potato brigade bad suffered heavy losses. It Is In such crises ns these that tlie commission merchant pro es his usefulness. Tho broken rnnks of llm potato column hnd scarce!) tieen lined up whin the voice of Duffy ssus heard up-speaking. " Glvu men cord!" said the noble commission merchant, and. amid tho breathless Interest of the bystanders he ent the message ringing (it went by bicjclei down toward the Ilattery: "bend another regiment of potatoes to the 9 front!" However, this occurred an hour after ho and 1 Major Wlnchcll Invited the guests to descend. I 'J he Inciting was a great success. The women I and babies fir it went down, not more than a H hundred soul all told (counting two bnbles " to II a piece" ns they count handkerchiefs In family J washing). The petticoat of tho lost woman was I atill trailing down the stairs when the men were I asked to follow. And did they I Well, you 1 ought to have Keen them! Tho whole thousand tt or moro surged with ono movement toward the I head of tho narrow stairway. It made three burly policemen drip with the sweat of honest ' toll to keep any sort. of order. Hut they finally W. ? cot the men Into line and passed them down Wrmjg jOne by one. Hat1 ' Below stairs the hall presented a sight to ' M make even a well-fed man hungry. Ixing 1 k tables, covered with shining white paixr which M hung down at the sides like table cloths. i ! stretched In rows the length of the room. If B they didn't groan, they certainly sighed under H their burden. In the centre of the first table jB was a beautiful stuffed pig. and he was flanked JH by dishes of crisp, white celer), then cranberry JH sauce, then cresses, then baskets of sliced bread, H then big round pans of balled pork and beam, m and soon tn the end. At each place was a plate H heaped with turkey and "stuffing" nnd pota- H toes. Alsotrcre was a good big cup for coffee H or tea, nnd a round red apple. H As soon as the women arrived they promptly H oat down and begin to eat. They were re- B quested tu wait awhile, which they ruefully T did. bo It was with the first lot of men. H9r They were In the flrst beat of combat when H? they, too, were interrupted with a request to wait. They contented themselves with devnur- Ing everything In sight with their eyes. When everybody who cnulrl tie accommodated was In his place Commander Itoolh 1 ucker asked them to rise and sing "Praise God from whom all blessings flow," nnd tho) did it with a will which made up for the liicic of harmony. Then It was ttial tho Commuuder shouted: "Now, even bod) charge' Do our best!" Whoopee! What nn onslaught' Tho turkey was routed, foot, horse, nnd dragoons. The pork and beans wero disordered aid put to flight. The cranberries were made prisoners in largo numbers, und the bread rcgluunts were cut to pieces. The marine forces, the tea and coffee reinforcements wero annihilated. Ono man. wlthablood-stnlnid bandage swath ing a broken head, had almost missed connec tions wim tho first table. He hud run wildly from chair to chair, only to bo forestalled by Bomebod) else. Finally ho did succ el In worm ing himself into n place, nnd then he fell to with a vim. To Ills great Joy. he had a "drum stick " for his portion of turkey, and ho could not hnvo been moro appropriate!) provide I, for he net tno pace for his whole tableful. Hn de-erves a place among thoilrummsr hcroosof hlsiory. Meanwnlle, up stairs there were more speech es, moro songs, und morn additions to the crowd of walling guests, so that, to all appearances, thodlnnir part) bade fair to go on and becomo i a supper part), if only the provisions would hold out that long. At Inst, down stairs, tho signal was given to Jcae the tnble, as the Kngllsh novel of high so- Bk clety alwn)ssas. Hut this time tho men did yLBi not stay for their clears. They uccompnnled tho lHi loilles to the drawing room, which win tho a roomy pavement of fourteenth street. When k ,t3 they hnd disappeared und the forty workers & ' could pause to tuke a look nt thn si ene of enr m ' rage and desolation. It alinot struck terror to their hearts. Hut tbey remembered thn thou- W Bund pounds of meat, the barrels of apples nnd ' potatoes, tho quarts and quarts of cranbcrrlis, I and the fact that Mr. Dutty was behind them.

"All ready!" "Let 'cm cornel" to the officer at the head of the stairs. And they came. And then they came again, nnd yet again and again, until tho afternoon had worn away and the potatoes from down town had been boiled and gone the way of their forerunners, nnd the pig bognn to look bored, and the beans to say. " We nevali saw anything like thin In liontnn!" and the pollce- I men wero carried out exhausted. And still thoy onme. ixiiREV cavhf.s rot: oisATZivnr. Why Patriot. Ittielnen Mnn, d a Cbrletlua ribould Olva lbiitil.a. There was a large attendance at the Central Pretbyttrlan Church on West Kifty-soventh treet, near Ilroadway, yesterday. Addrossos wero made by the pastor, the He v. Dr. Wilton Merle bmlth. and by John G. II, Meyers nnd Warner Vun Morden, Mr, Meyers spuku on "A Patriot's Ileason for Thank fulness." Ho said that In the expansion of tho country anil ijrowili cf tho social and political systems cerUiU principles aioeo that threatened tho stability of the government and tho prosperity of the nation. Certain an tagonisms wero bred by men advocating changes In commercial and political principles that had obtained for i cars, nnd w Mch lis.il proved to be for the host Imerccts of the majoilty. Dee of those dangerous Ideas was exploited at the recent election, when class was itrrnyid a.'ttlnst olass nnd orators aud writers sought to create a spirit of discontent, nnd a belief that one part of the community was strlWug to en rloh and aggrandize Itself al the expense of the other. The goolene of the people prevailed, however, and tbey reftmd to he led astray, and the danger of class warfuru was hupplly averted. Mr, Van Nordcn spokoou "A llusluess Mau'a Jleaoon for'lhftUkfulue s." "The business nun has more reason than any other." he said,' to feel thntikful to-day, lie feels u spirit of cralliude moving him for the outcome of the recent election. il is grateful not that thepurtieular lorm of politics he he lleied In triumphed at the polls, but that tho .outcome of tho election was a victory for a ( found and healthy business principle."

In the Calvary Daptljl; Churoh, West Fifty, seventh street, the Iter. Dr. It. 8. MaoArthur yesterday morning spoke about "The Responsi bilities of the Political Victory." A large American flag waved In front of the church and one on either side of and above the pulpit. Dr. MacAr'hursald In pnrt: " Great responsibilities rest upon the lnoom lng Administration. Tho victory achieved brings with It many sober realizations. Care must he git en ntonce to tho continuance aud Improvement of civil service In all govern mental relations. No truly Intelligent and patriotic Government can afford to give ofilces simply ni a reward for political service'. This country has btoa frequently misrepre sented by men It has soul to foreign courts. "The Government must also see that all churches stand on an equnllty before the law. We have no American church In this country. In the nature of tho case we cannot have an American church. Hvery true American pa triot must oppose the granting of special privi leges to any one church on tho military reserva tion at West Point. I oppose the granting of permission to the Koman Church to erect a house of worship for Us excluslvo use on Gov ernment property not elmplv because It Is the Human Churoh that asks that privilege. I would oppose It In the case of Haptlsts, Presby terians. Methodists, or any other church. "The Roman Church met with a severe de feat In the recent election. It was bonsted that not more than one paper under tho direction of thnt Church favored the candidate who was elected, and that a paper of comparatively little Influence. " Kven Archblshon Ireland s own diocesan organ, the A'otlhiiMierii Chronicle of St, Paul, was on the side of the defeated candidate. Judging by papers of the lloman Church It Is fair tn assume that nearli the solid vote of that Church went for the defeated candidate. Ac cording to present Indications Archbishop Ire land is likely to be known as the Apostle of Heresy for bis religious as well as for his politi cal v tewB. "The Incoming Administration will probably Inherit a troublesome legacy in the Cuban question. This Government will have to take a very decided stand before long regarding that Island. Spain lias been a cruel ts rant religious ly and politically toward Cuba, bpaln is still In tho middle ages In religion nnd politics. "(rent responsibility will come upon the Ad ministration In theadjus'ment of an equitable tariff We shall also before many years discuss tho whole question of Improved methods of electing our Presldi nts.

Dr. nr' Advice to tbr Tlpbrenr Orphan New Aeytum AVIdbm Opened. The President and Board of trustees of the Hebrew Orphan Asylum gave n reception to their friends yesterday, the occasion being the opening of the new wings of tho asjlura at 130th street and Amsterdam avenue. The first ceremony was the service tn the sjnagogue at 11 o'clock, where Dr. Herman Baar, the aged superintendent, delivered tho sermon to 740 children and a number of guests. " To our children." snld Dr. Boar, " this last campaign will teach a soand and beneficial lesson. The voung and the Ignorant aro easily captured and carried away by glittering phrases and flow of eloquent language. A talker of some brilliancy and tire can often In half an hour upset or unhinge the stsady minds of numbers of unthinking men. When you get older, and arrive nt that period In which you will exorcise your political rights, then place yourselves always on the side of that party where ou And common sense coupled with real patriotism, and national honor blended with natural Integrity. It Is by the loftiest and high est standard of public hoDor that you serve best your country and jouraelf. In the afternoon Mr. Theodore Sellgman of the Building Committee turned over the koys of the new wings to President Emanuel Lehman. Mr. I-hman accepted the keii In a short ad dress, and then Commodore Klbrldge T. Gerry spoke to the children. ..... The eveut of the afternoon was the drill of the cadets on tho parnde ground.

Bryanlsm will triumph In 1000. Ito asserted that multiplying trusts and monopolies. In which bands of capital Join wealth to wealth to buy up Industries and to control the markets, are organized conspiracies for publio plunder. Wheat speculation, the hlghprkeof coal, aud the proposed consotlua tlon f New York gas companies were bitterly denounced. ... "Our whole system of doing business needs reforming." he asserted. He thought that the hope of the future of the American Government lay in the Individual voter, nnd he expressed its convictions that the refusal of the nation; to So Into voluntary bankruptcy und to discharge Is obligations on the basis of C I cents on a dol lar, was a reason for profound thankfulness. nn. nix's TiiA.vKsairiNO.

The contest between the Rapid Transit Rail road Company and the Stolen Island Klcctrlc Railroad Company over the right of the Elec tric oompany to a five-cent ferry faro for Its passengers began )osterday. The trolley com pany's bridge from Joy street to thn new ferry house at St, George was completed yesterday morning, nnd al noon a car containing about fifteen citizens, among them several ofllclnls of the electric company, run Into tho ferry house. The party attempted to pass Into the ferry house, but all were stoppod by tho tlekot takers. Each of the party hail paid ten cents fare on the trolley car. and the ferry ticket takers wore informed of thnt fact, but they Insisted that they must have tickets. Ooneral Tralllc Agent Pollock of the Rapid Trnnslt Company was appealed to. and he upheld the ticket takers and declared that ho had no evidence that ten cents each had been paid to the trolley con ductor. When asked If ho was acting under or ders In refusing to pass tho trolle) company's passengers ho replied that ho was buuerlutendcnt (julge purchased ferry tickets for the entire part) under protest, pa) Ing ten cents additional fare for each, lhe trolley company then purchased 1.000 tickets at ten cents each and all the afternoon Kipplled them to passengers who asked for tickets to New York aud paid tun cents. Cousequenlly tbo trolley company curried all New ,urK passen gers free. Tho Rapid Transit Ferry Company on Saturday was served with nn order to show cause. Tho ferrv lompany which for merly was entirely under tho control of the Rnpid transit Railroad Company has always sold New YoJk tickets for ten cents at the railroad stations. The tickets wero de posited at the slattous and passengers passed without hindrance to the boats, 'iho company has paid Its percentage to lhe city of Now York on the basts of a five-cent ferry fare und five cents for railroad fare. Ihls system was changed yesterday to overcome the order of tho court. No tickets were taken up In any of tho Rapid transit Railroad stations but all tickets were collected as the passengers entered the ferry house at Si. (leorgo from the trnlns Con sequently It was possible for pctsons to ride free betw een stations on tho Rapid '1 rnnslt Railroad cars. The fight between these companies began when the Staten Island ferry franchise was sold two years ago by Comptroller Fitch.

Tlilnklna the Oilv Could be Jollied He Oisve Her the Mnrble Heart. When Annie Walton apuonrcd on tho dancing floor at Suiter's Harlem River Park lat Satur day night she created a sensotlon. Annlo Is young and protty, but It was her costumo which won her tho admtrntlon of the observers and caused tho joung mon who hadn't hnd nn op portunity to got their names down on her cord to Blgh regretfully and wish they wero Max Schmidt. Max Schmidt Is Annie's "gentleman friend." IIo was what tho other )outl.s called hlmon Pnturdny night, "tho main guy," and equally apt was the reference to Annlo ns the " peach of tho push." Annie's costume consisted of a blond wig with long, wavy curls, n ballot skirt which came nlmost down to hor knees, pink tights, pink slippers, a crown wonderfully wrought out of pipler niacin, and enough crisp, wavy flounces to keep the boys guessing. Annie Is a halrdrosser, and lives In West Farms. Max Is a machinist, and lives at Forty seventh street nnd Lexington nvenue. Annle'a elaborate mako-up was tho result of a consplr acv between herself and Max. "I want yer to crtiBh them chips out er sight," sold Max. meaning the othor young women who wero to nttcnd the ball. "If I had tho dough I could do It," replied An nie, and she forthwith told of a wondrous cos tume which flho had socu In tho window of n costumcr'n In Third avonue, and which, she said, could bo rented for Sr.0. 1 ho rosnlt of this conference was that on Sot urda) morning Annlo called on Max Matthias o( '.'UT.I Third avenue, nnd hi rod the costume for the evening. "Toko good core of It," said Matthias, as An nie started away with the bundle under her arm. "It's tho prlreof my lot." "Oh. I'll look out for It all right," said Annie as she went nwny. Matthias heard of Annie's conquest at the boll, and his clust stuck out with pride. IIo heme) how even the football gome with women pluvers had failed to draw attention away from Annlo and ills costumo, and ho resolvod to gtvo Miss Wnlton a rebato of fifty cents when she brought the costume back for the advertising she gave him. Hut, unfortunately for him, Annie didn't bring the costume back, Monday and Tuosday passed, and still no costume, 'Mie'K going to steal It on me," cried Matthias to his chief assistant, nnd ho forth with hustled out his entire staff to look up the girl. They came back with tho news that the address Annie had given was an open lot, then Matthias went to the station house and poured out his woes. " We'll do w hat we can for you," said the Sergeant, "hut. In the meantime, go to all the masquerades in Harlem and bee If you can't find her yourself. Mic'll be wearing tho cos tume, euro thing " Now, as n mutter of fact, Annlo had not stolen the ro-tume. 'lhe grand annual ball of tbe Chewing dum ( lub wns down for ednesday night at the Hurlem River Park, and Annie and Max were golug together. "1 can't glvu up five more plunks." soict Annie. 'Hang on to the costume, said Max "1 would," faltered Annie," "on'y I'm afraid I might git Pinched." "Pinched nnrthln'." exclaimed Mr. Schmidt, " Jes' tako the whole bundle back on Thursday and throw a Joll) inter tbe guy " lhe result wns that Annie blossomed forth on Wcdncsda) night, radiant in ballet skirt, pink tights, nnd the rest of the paraphernalia thnt had nppcreut the gang at i-aturda) night's function. Above the chorus of "Ah'a" that greeted her appearance nnd made Mux quiver ail over with pride, however, thero was one ejaculation which seemed foreign. It was " Himmel 1" in a long drawn out, walling voice, which Annie and Mnt might have done well lo heed. For themau w ho uttered It was Matthias, the customer. On the tip of the Sergeant, he had strolled Into the Chewing (turn ball, and just reached tho ball-' room In lime to see tils precious costume float oulon tbo floor, covering the graceful, shapely form of Annie Wnlton. Like tho wind. Matthias rushed to the East I','th street station house, and, 10 minutes later, he was bock again accompanied by De tectives Hollahun and Colllgan. "There she Is!" shouted tho costumer, point ing at Annie, and out on the floor sailed the two detectives. The) grabbed the dancer and ran herotT the floor. Max following and threaten ing dire vengeance. Once out of the ballroom Max peeled off his coat. "Now I'll sew a button on all of youse mugs," be said, but when two shields flashed in the electric light he started back, "Coppers!" he exclaimed. "Annie, yer pinched I" A sob from Annie was the only response. Then Max spotted the costumer. "Oho'." he said, "bo you're the guv what's makln' nil the row." and he aimed a blow thnt would havn made Matthias forget home, mother, costumo. ann ever) thing, hnd It landed. But It didn't. Mntthias dodged, und one of tbe detec tives grabbed Max and ran htm off to tho sta tion house. The other followid with Annie, wnlle behind came n crowd of about "00. They mode comments on Annie's legs, which nre shapel) . If a trifle slender, and it w as on!) w hen tiie door of the stntlon house shut out the view tnat they went hack to the ball. Annie wns arraigned In the Horlem Conrt vohlerdu) morning. Mio explained, between ner sobs, that it was onl) to get her money's worth out of the costume that she had worn It twice. " I meant to roturn It to-day," she sold. "Isthstwhv sou cavoo ilctitlous name and address -" nsked the Magistrate Annie couldn't make an) answer to this, so the ( ourl held her in S50O ball for trial, and she wasleduwu) weeping.
