The mother cherch of the English Luther an bodies in the District of Columbia-St. Paul'q. at the corner of 11th and H streets northwest-will tomorrow celebrate the six tieth anniversary of its organization with appropriate services. It is also proposed to make this occasion a "home-coming day," when all the people in the city who in the past have been connected with the church or Sunday school, but who are now mem bers of other congregations, may visit St. Paul's and participate in the anniversary observance. The program for the exercises tomorrow provides for the celebration of the sacrament of the Lord's supper at hoth morning and evening services. In the even ing the pastor, tev. F. W. Moot, will de liver the anniversary sermon, reviewing the history of the church and its progress of development during the past sixty years. The large chorus choir, under direction of Mr. Willam J. Palmer, has prepared spe cial mustc for the occasion. The interior of the edifice will be handsomely- decorated and the occasion promises to be a notable one in the life of the congregation. St. Paul's is the oldest English Lutheran Church in Washington, having been organ ised January 2, 1843. Concordia German Lutheran Church was organized In 1763; but ~t:' At 8T. PAUL'S ENGLISH fte services were and have been conducted for the most part in the German language. The organization of St. Paul's was due to the desire of English-speaking Lutherans to have a church whose services were conduct ad In English. The congregation held Its Arst service January 8, 1843, In Odd Fellows' Hall, then located on Pennsylvania avenue. Rev. Dr. A. H. Muller was the first pastor of the church, and officiated at the first service. The lot upon which the church and par sonage now stand was donated by Gen. John P. Van Ness., On June 18, 1844. the corner stone of the church was laid. Among those present on this occasion were ex President John Quincy Adams. Gen. Van Ness, Rev. Septimus Tustin, chaplain of the United States Senate; Rev. Dr. J. G. Morris and Rev. Dr. Benjamin Kurts. The Ma sonic fraternity of the city was also present at this time and the laying of the corner stone was attended with the ceremonies of that order. Rev. Dr. Muller terminated his relations se pastor of the congregation in June. 1846. and was succeeded by Rev. J. E. Graeff. The new edifice was dedicated October 1, 1848, during the pastorate of the latter minister. Owing to ill-health Rev. Mr. Graeff was obliged to resign his position the 2d of July. 1849. From this time on there ensued a series of long-termed pas torates. Rev. Dr. I. M. Butler, at present pastor of the Luther Place Memorial Church. was elected to succeed Mr. Graeff, July 16, 1848, and for twenty-four years he continued hils ministrations to the congre gatlon of St. Paul's. The pastor and people during this time, it is said, were compelled to undergo many trials, among which were the payment of a large debt Incurred by the erection of the church, the dissensions arising because of the civil war and the formation period following. The trying time, however, was passed successfully and the church continued to develop. In 1in6 the lot on which the Memorial Luth eran Church today stands was purchased, a ehapei erected and a Sunday school or ganised. For seven years Dr. Butler and t1io congregation of St. Paul's cared for this mission. In 1873 the Memorial congre gation was organised, and Dr. Butler re signed as pastor of St. Paul's and became the pastor of the Memorial Church. The vacancy was filled for a short period byRev. H. B. Belmer, and in November, 11,the late Rev. Dr. Samuel Domer took charge of the congregation. Dr. Domer served the church as its pastor for twenty six years. He was greatly esteemed by his congregation and also by a wide circle of friends and acquaintances outside the church. The house of worship was ex tensively repaired during Dr. Domer's period of service, find the congregation and the membership increased notably. In AprIl, 1893, the semi-centennial anniversary of the church's existence was celebrated with a roprit services, which were par ciainby many local and visiting erymn. Dr. Domer resigned the pastor ate 31, 1900. His death occurred June Rtev. Frederick W. Moot, the present pas tar, began his duties here October 15, 1900, in resbonse to the unanimous call of the congr'egation. He is a young man and Is regarded as very popular, not only with the members of his own church, but also amnong his acquaintances throughout the city. He was born in New York state, and reosved his theological training at Hart wiek narey, New York. He entered the ministry 4n 18W2. Before coming to Wash ington he served as pastor of the Lutheran Chumch at Stone Arabia, N. Y., and of St. Marks Lutheran Church, in Johnstown, N. T., becoming the pastor of the latter con grgton on the date of its organization. He served this church as pastor for four ?ear~s, and his efforts were considered as emientiy successful. While Mr. Moot was patrthere the congregation purcase=d a eot and erected a handsome brick church, logt a pasnage, increased Its member ~ito 81, and the Sunday school had an ontfme of over 500. Duighis pastorate at St. Paul's Church ?. othas received about seventy mea asinto the church. A debt of 1,800 Against the property has been paid, and the audiences have been doubled. All branches et the churds are said to be enthusiastically aggessve. 'The church now has a member ship of over 150, and the enrollment in the Bunday school numbers about 406. During the past year the Sunday school tas raised 1,OS.46, of which $868.88 were devoted to ~bbenevolences of the church. In the last tkyyears the school has raised $22,56.06 for various objects connected with religious work. St. Paul's Is appropriately characterized, as stated, as the mother church of English Ludieranism in the District. She claim. three daughter., the Memorial Church, the Churcb of the Reformation and St. Mark's. Ner uraadduirhters are Zion's Church, the Church of Our Redeemer and the Keller EsimoriaL. Ybe eal relaxationin strictly religious in chrchesincident to the holi ie en eperieaeed is Wssh 8%saa fewweeks, but the seelal burcbetl features of the religious organizations have been more prominently emphasized. This -phase of church work is regarded as a very essential element, and the pastors and teachers in the Sunday schools, as well as members of the churches, have been de voting a great deal of their time to provid-, ing social pleasures for the pupils in the schools and the members of the congrega tions. The active evangelistic work will be resumed again now that the holiday ob servances.are over, and several meetings will soon be commenced along lines of spe cial religious effort.

GOES TO GREENVILLE MAT INTENDED FOR THE PEO PLE OF INDIANOLA, MISS. Action of the President in the Case of Mrs. Cox, the Colored Postmaster. The administration has taken'Iuick Anbd effective action to punish the people of In dianola, Miss., for failure to protect the postmaster there, Minnib M. Cox, colored. The matter was 4tculsed at the cabinet meeting yesterday, an&jagain in the after noon, when the Pr hident had conferences with Postmaster o1iejl Payne and other cabinet officials. I addition to closing the office until the peo e dve willing to accept Mrs.rCox, the Presidentlhas referred all.the papgra to,#ttorney1enral KnoX, who will attempt to begin prosecutions. The- following rtmal' statement -Iandhe 'Ptlebewt weqan-ade ,ghfic _P& gffary Cortelyca late yesterday afternoon: "The posimaste- atl Indgi'nuole.' Miss., is Mrs. Minnie M. 4x a colored woman. She served three years as postmaster un der President Hari' .n.I When President McKinley came in ahe was again appointed, in 18D7, nearly sixf'yeads ago. Her char acter and standingoi. the:community are indorsed by the best and most reputable people in the town. AmAng, those on' her bond is the presdat demooitio state sen ator from the district, together with the leading banker of Indianola, and an ex state senator from the district, also a democrat. The postmaster and her hus band own from $10,000 to 115,000 worth of property in Sunflower county. The reports of post office inspectors who have investi gated the office from time to time show that she has given the utmost salidsaction to all -the patrons of the office, that Ashe is at all time, courteous, faithful, competent and honest in the discharge of her' duties. Her moral standing in the community is of the 'highest. Her reputation is of the best. Few offices of this grade in any state are conducted better. "The postmaster recently forwarded her resignation to take effect on January 1, but the report of Inspectors and informa tion received from various reputable white citizens of the town andt neighborhood show that the resignation was forced by a brutal and lawless element purely upon the ground of her' color and was obtained un er terror of threats of physical violence. '"Phe mnay'or of the town and the sheriff of the county both told the post office inspector that if she refused to resign thxey could not be answerable for her safety, althoughi at the same time not one word was said against her management of the office. On January 1 the bondsmen of the postmaster telegraphed that the post office was closed, that the postmaster claimed that her resig nation was in the President's hands to take effect January 1, and that there had been no adivice af the appointment of her suc cessor. The telegram closed with this state ment: 'Pronmpt action necessary for relief of business interests.' Jn the view of the President the relief of 'the business inter ests, which are being ifiuredi solely by the action of the lawless element of the tows, Is wholly secondary- to the preservation of law and order, and-'the assertion of the fundamental principle that this government will not connive at or tolerate wrong and outrage of such flagrant character. "By direction of the Preaident the follow ing telegram was sent by the Postmiaster General to the bondsmen: 'The postmaster's resignation has been received but not accepted. In view of the fact that the office at Indianola Is closed all mall addressed to that office will be for warded to Greenville."a 'The papers In the case have been sent to the Attorney General for action." - Neciprocity as a Confidence Game. rom the Chicago Record-Herald.
