CHURCHES 4N UNISON Ti f H All Pay Tribnfe toj'Memory of Presi dent- Mc&inley. D1SC0DRSES BY FMMIKEBT DIVINES Immense Gaifiering of People Yes terday at ,Chase's Theater. AN OVERFLOW MEETING On the first Sabbath after the laying away of the body of William McKinley, the beloved President of the United States, thousands of people of Washington, his official home, gathered to give expression to their esteem and affection for the man and President, and to draw from his life a lesson of loyal devotion to country and mankind. No audience chamber within the bounds of the city was spacious enough to hold the immense concourse of men and women who devoted the day to the honor of the guiding spirit of the republic, and so it happened that an out-of-door over tlow meeting was held within sight of the White House, and the strains of music floating on the autumn air were wafted to the home of the head of the nation, so recently bereft of a tenant. There In the open the sweet, reverberating chords of the song, "Some Time We'll Understand," like the breath of a spirit and prophet, were heard on the evening air. The full volume of harmony of his favorite hymn sounded across the spacious lawn where so recently he had listened to the enchanting cadences of the national band, that now accompanied the words of the singers. Hid last words were re-echoed in a mighty chorus, thou sands of voices singing "Nearer, My God, to Thee." Washington's tribute to President Mc Kinley was given yesterday afternoon in Chase's Theater. "Lrong before the hour of meeting every seat and all available stand ing room were occupied and the doors were closed. Then the crowd, filling sidewalk and street, disappointed in not being able to participate in the services within, waited in the vain hope that the doors might again bs opened. But' it was impossible, and the line of uniformed officers at the entrance was maintained, and admission was refused to all who came. The ceremonies within were begun, and still thousands of people lingered without. Speakers were then provided for an open air meeting, and from the balcony on ir>th street the assemblage was addressed b>* those who had already appeared on the stage within. No more representative gathering of the people of the District of Columbia could have been arranged than that which filled and assembled outside the theater. All re ligious denominations were there represent ed in tlie audience and by the speakers. *y.en of all poli tical affiliations were asone in paying h tribute to the virtues of the Presi dent they had learned to trust and love as the head of the nation rather than as the leader of any party. There were pres ent as many women as men, and they had come early and wi?fyig)y stood on the side w;jik. l??ft\?%-ithe-K?lot)B9- w*-r? ?pei*-e?J in order to rtvwvfttSy witness the ctre mcflftes*" "v,i c -..-i. .y~.

There' were even hope and an appeal to the Almighty for mercy to the J6rfth1ttdf c^irt the nalipn ;tft.J9iPurni ing. There was counsel -for wise action in dealing'-wlth-tbe ii-rational fanaticism tttat had warped the ntlnd of a man so that the thought oT' assassination was possible. Above all, there was the narration of ths many manly virtues of the pure man who had served his country <so Well tn so many stations, and whose greatest achievement has been to live so that his memory will inspire the whole nation and be an in fluence for good in the generations yet un born. The service was necessarily a long one. That it was not tedious was evidenced by the hundreds who stood in the aisles and in the spaces In the rear of the fully oc cupied seats of the theater throughout the two and one-half hours of speech and song. While there was but one theme,'each or* ator 'brought forth new -beauties, as each told in turn of the character, the life and the death of William McKinley In elo tfUence which seemed to reach the climax of effectiveness. Throughout the whole ther? was woven a. 'thread of song which seemed to separate,'ye? sanctify,and con secrate into one grand whole, the. spoken words, the ^silent assent of thp "assembled multitude, the beauty of the flowers, the grandeur of the flag and the gloom of the crepe-draped likeness of the beloved dead. When the audience was permitted to re echo - the last words of the one they mourned the sound went up a mighty column of harmony. Every verse of the well-known hymn, "Nearer, My God, to Thee," was rendered, and every person In the theater joined in the song. ream far the Dead, Lesson* for Livieg Each tribute of mournful praise -for the dead President was leavened with lessons for the living. While each speaker repre sented a different creed of religious belief, each saw the good that might come from the chastening hand of God, and each breathed a prayer for President Roosevelt and expressed the. utmost confidence In him. Every seat In the houfce had been taken and ervery available place tp stand in was occupied when at tej? minutes to 2 o'clock the Marine. Band begykn ? prelude to the exercises by rendering-"Meditation." Mr. Southard Parker, jufichairman ot the me morial service" cpigmtUee. made a brief introduction of Commissioner H.. ,B. F. Macfarland.in. prtseniQff him as chairman for the occasion. . , Mr. Macfarland YfcfcJShded as follows: "A friend of Go0,%Tfrtend of man, the chief minister and-thfe ^hlef magistrate of the hatfon,'^illitfm'MCKlnley has passed on in-victory to Um,,(father's.house, amid the unparalleled .manrnlng of the whole earth.

We knew that lie was wbi^hy ef our loye: aid respect, itid va gave them- without stint, as hsgare his friendship- to the District, which never had a better friend. ,.We that he was obeying eveifr dsy a Tolfee -tfcatsiiid: "'lore thyself test: cherish thoea hearts that * hate tbekt- T ' t -Yl ' 3orwtaios wtks net more tbes -hoaeety;' StiH la tby right haStf carry netl* I*ew*. ro silence eaalapa -tongata W jet ttH fear not; bet all the eowthon aln??< it, M tny coaatry's, Ihy God's ud <rnth*f, then if thOo fall*at, Choa faU'st a Messed martyr.' "A?ld now, at the very helghf of that path of duty which became for him the path of glory, he has found the crown yt life that Is laid up for those who are faithful uato death. In the supreme mo ment he achieved his last success and his chief desire, in uniting the hearts of all the people, as he showed the whole world how Christian living ends in Christian dy ing. He has gone on ahead. But like the light of a vanished star his life will still shine upon us with Its great bequest of an inspiring example, which shall lift us nearer to God. Our best tribute to his memory will be to follow him as he iol lowed Christ." The Invocation. An invocation was pronounced by R?v. George P. Wilson of Assembly'.-! Presby terian Church. "Under the shadow of a great sorrow we bow our heads before Thee," prayed Dr. Wilson. "We had hoped tint the great aeart which had grown so sweet, so tear and so strong, might be saved to us and to the nation. But in his own linel words wo say, 'Thy will be done.' "Bless today Ins widow In her loneliness and make her well ngain. "Bless the President of the United States under such difficult circumstances corning to the seat of power. May ail the splendid promises of his past career be more than realised In the days to come." Dr. Wilson prayed for the nation and for the assassin. "We would not stay swift and ready justice, but give him the better mind and stay the increasa of his kind. Chopin's funeral march by the jvlar.ne Band followed the prayar. Patriotism of McKinley. Rev. George Buckler of the Methodist Episcopal Church was introduced by Com missioner Macfftrland and spoke most elo o.uently of the virtues of William Ale Kin ley. He placed patnotism at the hoad of tnese virtues, saying that the martyred President loved nis Hag not only because of Its beauty, buc becaiw? of the princi ples It represented: because of the I'berly it stood for, and because he hdd fought lor it. He asked a blessing on the new Fi esident and on "thj woman wno weeps today and with wnom th; wor.d weeps over the grave of h^r belov?d dead, where liest the tenderest of husbands, the truest of lovers, the mosT. faithful of iriends. \\ e ask it in the name of.the President of toe greater republic, thd chief executive of the United States, of the world, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords." Rev. J. G. Butler of the Lutheran Church began his tribute with the sentiment that silence was more befitting the occasion than speech. The vocabulary of the nation had been exhausted, he said, both in de nouncing the crime and in praise f(jr the heroic life and death of the martyr. "Pres ident McKinley needs no eulogy," he con tinued. "His whole iife from boyhood to the morning of his translation, when God's angel came and took him, stands as his best eulogy. A united, peaceful, prosper ous. happy country rises up to bless him. The world gathered at this new-made grave, and with uncovered head sheds tears of sympathy. The hearts of rulers and the hearts of the people have been made better for the life and death of William McKin ley. He was God's benediction to this land. But we must turn away from the grave. We may not live In the gloom. It Is for you and me, with manly faith and courage, to take up the burdens of life and enter with better equipment into Its battles." Lessons of fortitude and faith were to be learned from the life and death of the mourned President, said the speaker. H6 predicted a great spiritual uplifting among all the people of the earth as the result of the martyrdom of "this greatest man in American history." Dr. Stafford's Address. Rev. D. J. Stafford of St. Patrick's Ro man Catholic Church was the next speaker. He said: "Over seventy millions of people bow down by the grave In the little church yard at Canton, shedding tears of real affection and real love, while all the world stops to look on with sympathy, aye, and shed tears of sympathy, with us. And out beyond the light of civilization, into the dark places of barbarism, as the message is wafted around the world, men stop and think, and all the world la sad, for William McKinley Is dead. "Was ever man so mourned? "Did ever man so deserve the mourning? "What was it in the life of this man that, won the love of the people? What was It that won the love of the world? He was so patient. He was so gentle. He was so kind. He was so considerate, so affable, so condescending, so devoted In guiding the ship of state through perilous storms to the clear beyond that men came to the conclusion that his character seem ed-to be so perfect that it could not b* genuine. And I doubt not there are men listening to me today who have thought William McKinley was an actor. "Oh, misery of life, that we cannot rec ognize and appreciate the good qualities of a man at their full value until they are dead. ? "What was the motive power from which all these things sprang? It was not his exalted position, though that was high. It was not his great success as a political man. It was not even the great events in which he took part. No. There was some thing greater than all this. And when everything else had failed it turned the most dreadful disaster Into the greatest possible triumph, and saved the nation from a frenzy of madness. When merlcine could do no more. When science wept by his bedside because she was Impotent. When all the wealth of the nation. If it had been asked, would have come out or every individual home and would have heap ed up mountains high. When all had failed, this man William McKinley arose In the magnificence of his character and In his su blime Christian conviction and Christian faith, superior to the great disaster, and infused hope into the heart o/ the nation by his religion. "It was the faith and character of the man which stood out so great and so strong in that supreme hour. "Let his memory live, and let every man profit by his example. Let every man re view in his heart his loyalty and love for the principles for which McKinley stood. "When the memorial bridge. In which he took so great an interest is thrown across the Potomac, place him on a pinnacle with Washington and Lincoln, nnd on the bot tom of that pinnacle write these words:-Wil liam McKinley, President of the United States, shot in Buffalo by an enemy of civilization where he died a heroic death in sublime Christian faith, speaking th^se, his last words?It is God's way. His will be done. Nearer, My God. to Thee, Near er to Thee.'?and all the nation, and every man that thinks and every man that has a human heart In his breast will be matle better and drawn nearer to God by that sublime example." Draws a Parallel. "Face to Face" was touchlngly rendered as a solo by little Miss May Bucker, after which Rev. J. M. Schick, President Roose velt's pastor, was Introduced. Dr. Schick spoke remlnlscently of an occasion ten years ago when President McKinley. who was then governor of Ohio, spoke at a memo rial service to General Gibson. What Gov ernor McKinley had said of General Gib son was applicable now, said Dr. Schick, and that was that the most enduring memo rial that could be erected would be the per petuation of the characteristics of the man who was mourned. While the activities of life might crowd the memories of thte oc casion from the memory, the necessity for the virtues which made McKinley so sin cerely mourned would be ever fresh. These briefly, were patriotism, piety and purity. Greater than to be loved, continued Dr. Schick, is to be Worthy to be loved, and an emulation of the life of the martyred Presi dent would gain this greater end. Dr. Merrill E. Gates, former president of Amherst College, was the next speaker. Dr. Gates believed there were many signifi cant things to be observed in the catas trophe mourned. The life of the man whe had been taken was typical of the nation h% had represented. Continuing, he said: A Contract. "President McKinley represented not only our nation, bpt our civilisation. His as sassin represented that piteous disease of our civilisation and our time?murderous anarchy. McKinley stood for love and light and law and. order. His assassin stood for hatred and ignorance and law lessness and chaos. These two principles met. One Of the men died. Which con quered t To doubt that light and love shall conquer, that ear beloved government shall be saved-from the Insane disease of an archy, would be to doubt God himself. . "But the conquest of good government over anarchy will not be won by severity of penalties or by laws of. exclusion or repression, necessary as are those measures of precaution and self-preservation. Hatred can be overcome only by love. Insane and misjudging hatred of .the authority or God In the soefsl' life-of men* can be Overcome only by tbe mighty tlluminlag missionary power of the love of Christ- In the hearts of men who shall get hold of the hearts of those anarchists with Christian truth. The only force that is sane enough to cure the Insanity of anarchy, and mighty enough to drive out from hearts possessed by ft the devil of murder and anarchy. Is the love of the risen Christ." a quartet from the choir of St. Patrick'* Church sang "Lead, Kindly Light." More Eloquent Thmm Words. Rev. Teunis 8. Fninlin of the Presby terian Church was the next speaker. Dr. Hamlin said the presence of the Immense audience in the theater and the gathering of the thousands on the outside was a more eloquent tribute than words to the memory " of the late President. The un paralleled grief of the civilised world had been a mighty testimonial that above all men President McKinley had the capacity not only to love, but to inspire love in re turn. He spoke of the farewell address at Buffalo, and said its sentiments would never die. Dr. Hamlin said there was nothing which spoke so eloquently for the self-command of the American people as the fact that the man who was responsible for the death of the President would suffer the penalty of the law as other murderers. Dr. Hamlin uttered a caution that in the impulse of our sorrow and just anger we should enact too harsh measures to strike at anarchy. Such laws would only react in the end, he said. "America still stands for a free press and free speech. America is still the home of the oppressed, as It has been from the days of Plymouth Rock. Only we may restrain the incendiarism and the madness of speech. We may exclude from our shores moral as we exclude phys ical pestilence. This we may still do and be what we have always been, a free na tion and the asylum of the world." Rev. J. J. Muir of the Baptist Church followed Dr. Hamlin. Dr. Mulr called at tention to the fact that the first year of the new century has been written with the blood of our chief magistrate as a gruesome contribution to the world's his tory. It was, he said, the most sacrileg ious murder of the age. In its mourning the nation had forgotten creed and sect. Dr. Mulr drew the lesson of duty from the pathetic heroism with which the late Pres ident bore his suffering and met the end. We could follow this example In loyalty to the new President and In our own lives. Spiritual Uplifting. "Nearer, My God, to Thee," was sung by the entire audience, led by the Marine Band, at the conclusion of Dr. Muir's ad dress. A great spiritual uplifting as the result of the manner of President McKlnley's death was predicted by Rev. E. B.. Bagby of the Christian Church, who was the next speaker. This was to be an illustration of how God could change a curse to a blessing and bring good out of ?vil. The tears which fill our eyes become telescopes through which brighter things are viewed. He be lieved if the silent lips of him who was mourned could speak he would counsel re newed zeal in spiritual things, a getting closer to God and to each other. Rev. U. G. B. Pierce of the Unitarian Church quoted Gladstone's first essential of a eulogy?"a good man." "So large and manifold was the character of William McKinley," continued Dr. Pierce, "that the task is easy, and becomes one of repression rather than expression. He was In many respects a typical American. He possessed the sagacity of the east and the large mindedness of the west; shrewdness of the north and the noble impulsiveness of the south. He was brave without being auda cious; childlike, but not childish. He knew the difference between diplomacy and du plicity. He was dignified, but not haughty; tender as a woman, but not effeminate. These (Qualities made William McKinley great while living and endear him to us now he is dead." Harmony Lodge Quartet of the Masonic choir sang "Jesus, Lover of My Soul" (Ref uge). In introducing Rev. Herbert S. Smith of the Episcopal Church Mr. Mac farland told the audience of the overflow meeting which was in progress on the out side. Dr. Smith detailed the events of the past two weeks, and said that some time we would understand God*s reason. The deed of the assassin was l.ike the kiss of Judas. It had left the ship of state torn and bruised, wounded by a derelict which had slipped its moorings from the anchorage of hate. "But he Who 'sought for crime's chief distinction shall be called the prince of fools," declared the speaker. Poorer, Yet Richer. Rev. John Van Shaick, Jr., pastor of the Church of Our Father, spoke In part as follows: - "As we have listened to the words spoken In memory of William McKinley I am very sure that there has come to us all not so much hopelessness as hope; not the sorrow and the tears which paralyze, but the sor row which nerves and strengthens the soul for the duty ahead. ' Words of greatest tribute have been laid at his feet r words of eloquent warning ad dressed to his country; tender voices have chanted the national affliction. WTiat I would have you remember this afternoon more than the darkness and gloom of tragedy is the strength of our republic, the patriotism of our people, the tender sympathy of the nations of the world and the higher, purer civilizaitlon for every tribe and tongue made possible by the Ufe and the death of him whom we mourn. "We are poorer, but we are richer In President McKinwy's death. Men realize as never before the foundation principles of his life. They know that he was a pa triot; so true a patriot thsut he rose above sectionalism and partisanship. Only a short time ago. addressing the men of the south, so powerfully did this northern vet eran appeal to them that one in his enthu siasm pinned a confederate badge upon his breast?not as a symbol that the President Indorsed southern policies forty years ago, but that he had understood southern man hood and had come close to the southern heart. There were those, with shame let It be said, who would have had him tear that badge from his coat and trample It under his feet. Let us thank God that he was infinitely above that. Splendid as he was in young manhood, facing shot and shell, striking blows for the cause he served, more splendid was he in these later years, teaching what another martyr taught umid the storm of civil war, 'We are not enemies, but friends.' " "Sometime We'll Understand." At the conclusion of the address of Rev. Mr. Van Schalck Mrs. Thomas C. Noyes sang, with splendid effect, "Sometime We'll Understand," sung at the funeral services over the body of President McKinley in the rotunda of the Capitol. Mr. Macfarland then read a letter from Rabbi Stern of the Hebrew Congregation of this city, In which Mr. Stern expressed his regret upon being unable to attend the service. "It is well," said Rabbi Stern, "that all classes and creeds should unite in honoring the memory of one who loved his fellow men without distinction to race or creed, and whose beautiful and noble life, repre senting the highest type of American man hood, taught the world that true-religious ness and broad, liberal views are not only reconcilahle, but inseparable." The chairman announced that Rev. Dr. Prettyman of the Methodist Episcopal Church South was to have been present and make an address, but he did not return to the city in time to do so. Rev. Luclen Clarke of the Methodist Epis copal Church spoke feelingly of the person al characteristics of the late President -and of his power In reconciling men of all par ties, of all sections and of all faiths. Beautiful Christian Character. "He was a man of beautiful, sympathetic, Christian character," he said. "He bullded on the everlasting foundation; he bullded his life for all ages. His foundation was the eternal God. He believed with all his heart in God, the Father Almighty, and In Jesus Christ, His Son. Him he trusted Im plicitly and served constantly. The ele ments of his character were truth, right eousness. love and patriotism. The stress and strain of .political campaigns, the temptations of office and the tremendous burdens of a great government were not able to crush him." ?Rev. M. Ross Fishburn of the First Con gregational Church dwelt upon, the fea ture of the llfe'pf th<s martyred President which made him so magnificent in death. 4*The secret of his victorious death," said Mr. Fishburn. "was in getting ready."' The beauty of character shown In the death of Wlliam McKinley was the result of his preparation during his almost three icqrfr y6&?s? In closing the meeting Mr. Macfarkuid spoke of President Roosevelt, and ex plained that his absence 'from the meeting was because he had been obliged to de cline invitations of a similar character in other cities. The. audience then sang "America," the great volume of melody from 2,000 voices giving rent to.the partlotic sentiments of the assemblage. The benedlcttsn was pronounced by Rev. Kr. Thotoas ot Epiphany Church. These Present. On the tags and te the large audience there were many government officials and prominent representatives of the .llplo-. matte corps and civil life.

The Children's Country Home. As the years go on the little girls who once formed the sets that went regularly to the children's country home become grown young women, but their love for the home and desire for the good times en joyed there grow as they do, and they are genuinely sorry when told they must be denied the pleasure In favor of the younger ones. This explains a plan Miss Gordon thought of for the "old girls," as they are always called. It was thought that these girls might spend the ten days of their vacation from the shop or places of work, and make up a special set at the country home -tor the iast weeks of the season. Some friends wsre found who helped with money for the amusement of these girls, giving them recently the benefit of ten days In the sweet- country air to refresh them for the rest of the year. Mr. Droop lent a piano. 4an<i. as, seme ..of. the girls could play and sing, music and dancing were the order every day. , ... One afternoon Cabin John bridge was visited and *l**??rsdny pt*!** pa the Zoo was made, and then came an evening ex cursion to Chsvp Obase-iaksr when a car was sent to the Grant foad to meet the party.
