OLA1[ PREOENM TE FOUND -* 800IETY DE LIV WFAXIAMMM Toeici Bhompes by the Bvera -p-akers-PrawWon for Beereta ris to Forelgn XImsonaries. The Sunday school house of Calvary Bap tist Church was the scene last night of an enthusiastic gathering of Christian Endeav orers of the District, and the eeries of meet ings which began at 3 o'clock in the after noon and closed at -1 o4lock at night wai regarded as among the most important ever held here by the society since the greal Christian Endeavor convention of 1LE, Tho speakers for the occasin were Rev. Dr. Francis E. Clark, the founder of the so ciety, and president of the United Society, Christian Endeavor; Rev. Clarence E. Eber man, field secretary of the united society; Mr. William Shaw, treasurer of the united society, and Mr. George B. Graft, publica tion agent. The auditorium of the Sunday school house was crowded with young people and a great many pastors of local churches were also noticed in the throng attending the rally meeting. On the wall behind the platform in the south side of the room was a banner bearing the -inscription, "For Christ and the Church." while across the west and east ends of the room, suspended from the balcony, were banners containing the words, "The World. for Christ" and "Christ for the Woid." Hanging from the pillars supporting the.balcony were numer os small convention banners bearing ap propriate inscriptions, while the letters "C. E." were displayed everywhere about the hall. The Opening Services. Mr. Owen P. Kellar, president of the Dis trict Union, presided at the mass meeting and introduced the speakers, and Rev. F. W. Moot of St. .Paul's Lutheran Church offered the prayer. A short service of song was held, beginning at 8 o'clock, led by Mr. Page L. 2immerman, after which Rev. Mr. Eberman spoke on "Christian Endeav or at Home." The speaker said that his wanderings about the United States duping .the past year had brought him into contact twlth as heroic a set of young -people as ever in habited the eartlk. "I have just come in from Oklahoma,' said Mr. Eh-"nan, "a country only thirteen years old, , d yet the woods are full of Christian Endeavorers, who, in addition to, striving for material prospertly, are seeking to save souls and striving to build up the kingdom of Christ." He mentioned m _g marshal In one of the new towns, a member of the society. "On h e beside his official star," said the "this young mar shal wore the C, . pn. He was a dead shot and a terrorA ey4 doers in that part of the country." . In South Dakot thq field secretary said he met a young xn. wZ had 'driven eighty miles in order toj attend a Christian En deavor convention,- an' still he made no mention of the pain i bis back because of the long ride. "And yet you hear talk that the old-time ent**as of Christian work ers has gone to seed." exclaimed the speak er. "Don't believe it, young people. There Is a wonderful andgrowing spirit of brotherhood throughout the land. Be hope ful, be constructive Christians,-and never speak disparagingly of anything that is linked with -the cause of Chirist. Jesus Christ is going to-win America for Himself, and if you want a pant in the work you must get in step, wlthyour brothers and sisters In the onward.march." Dr. Clark Greited With Applause, When Dr. Clark arose to speak on "Chris tian Endeavor Abroad" he was greeted with great applause by the audience, and many handkerchiefs were waved In salute to the founder of Christian Endeavor. He began his address by paying a glowing tribute to Washington. "When I think of Washington," said Dr. Clark, "I always associate it with the Ecene on the east steps of the Capitol in 1896, when between 50,000 and 75,000 young people gathered and sang songs of praise that could be heard for a mile around. The picture of that inspiring scene has been placed in the Christian Endeavor almanac, which will be sent broadcast over the world. The convention in Washington was one of the greatest ever held in the history of the society. You have leaders here who are known all over the country, and we feel that Washington is a Christian Endeavor stronghold, where there is an atmospher of wonderful spirituality." He urged that the niembers of the society should adopt the strenuous optimistic spirit of the chief executive, for with such a spirit it was sure to win in the crusade against evil. Continuing, he said in part: "The belt of fellowship of the Christian Endeavor reaches around the world. I sup pose you can go to no land, e:lcept possibly Thibet, without finding Christian Endeavor societies. In China. Japan, India. Africa, and even in the very heart of Lapiand, in the frozen north where the electric lights of the icy regions continually glimmer dur ing the night, there is a Christian Endeavor society. In the Island of Molokal, where lepers abound, the only Protestant religious body is a Christian Endeavor society. Not only a girdle of fellowship, but there is also a girdle of prayer reaching around the world. There are no less than 62,000 socie ties now from which ,prayer is offered for the salva on of souls.' Dr. Cla said a belt of praise and of service also girdled the earth by means of this organization. He mentioned a num ber of incidents connected with the work in foreign lands, and said that already there were martyrs on the rolls of the Christian Endeavor Society. Men and women, mem bers of the society, in .the northern part of China had given up their live, for their faith. He also spoke of the interdenomina tional fellowship which was emphasized by the society, and told of some of the benefits that the world- is receiving from Its work. In closing he urged every member of the society to join in the movement to increase the membership of the organisation one tenth In the coming year. Treasurer Shaws Address. Mr. Shaw, the treasurer, spoke in a Ihappy vein and was frequently interrupted by applause. Hend4clared that from the time he began to'doiresocieties he had been made treasurer* I f bodies, and ex. pressed the hope iint ~there were a treas urer in heaven h?'M I4get the position. "You will pard6hli'&~ from Boston,' said Mr. Shaw, "if be-gays there are sonme things the people of Washington ought te know."
