Addressee-An Appropriate
The first day's celebration of the fiftieth
anniversary of the founding of Waugh
Methodist Episcopal Church, 3d and A
streets northeast, was held in that edifice
yesterday. Three services-morning, after
noon and evening--consisting of an appro
priate musical program and addresses by
present and former pastors, were attended
by unusually large numbers of the mem
bers of the church and their friends.
In his sermon at the morning services,
Rev. George E. Maydwell, pastor, gave a
brief history of the organization of the
church. He took for his text, 'A Jubilee
Shall That Fiftieth Year .B Unto You."
He- said the text was a law of God unto
the people of Israel, and that every fiftieth
year was a universal obligation upon the
Jews to be observed in the release of
debtors from their dues in the liberation of
bondsmen and the pardoning of certain of
fenses. Under the Jewish law, said the
pastor, every one was a brother, and the
result was a manifestation of friendship to
Continuing, he said:
"This is the fiftieth year of the found
ing of our church. It is well for us to re
joice. As the great race of Israel grew
out of the taking of Joseph a captive in
Egypt, so a strong church has grown out
of an organization founded under very
unauspicious circumstances. Fifty years
ago the church had a humble beginning in
a small one-story house ol Massachusetts
avenue between 3d and 4th street north
east, and a Sunday school was started with
only seven members. Twelve were taken
into the church then; today the member
ship is 600. Five times the place of wor
ship was changed, and at last a commo
dious home has been secured."
Exhibit of Church Work.
Mr. Maydwell cited figures showing the
amount of money the church had contrib
uted to missionary and benevolent enter
prises and toward the support of aged min
isters, declaring that these acts were but
a return in a measure for the blessing of
God. He spoke of the holy purpose the
founders of the church had in the effort to
save precious souls and of their sacrifices
to that end. He declared that they were
not men who despised small things, and be
cause of them and their worthy successors
the church had grown to be a power for
God. The pastor admonished the members
not to be intoxicated with the joy of suc
cess, but that they must apply themselves
to the problems of today and provide
against disintegration. That they must
keep the spirit of God .In their hearts and
their altars burning with the fire of love.
Reunion Exercises.
The exercises of the afternoon included a
reunion of former pastors and the members
of the church. Rev. G.V. Leech, who was
pastor of the church in 1865, addressed the
meeting, and, in part, said: "In March,
1865, I became your pastor. It was just
after the commencement of my ministry
that that great and good man, President
Lincoln, was assassinated. Those were in
tense times and were not fruitful for re
ligious matters. However; I recall with
pleasure the inspiring, associations which
I had with some of your noble men, such
as 'Mr. Middleton, Mr. Dyer and Mr.
Hayghe. Since my pastorate you have en
joyed prosperity, and you have gone for
ward. There are three things for which I
am grateful: First, that I had pious par
ents; secondly, that I gave my heart to
God very early in life; thirdly, that I join
ed the' Methodist Churli. . love other de
nominations, but I love the church of my
choice the best."
A short address wa# dade by Rev. W. C.
Mullen and brief talks' by Mr. Asker of
Brightwood, Mr. W. B. Williamson of the
Douglas Memorial Church, Mr. James Dyer
of Trinity Church, Mr. E. H. Ripiey, Mr.
0. F. Edgar, Mrs. Mary Laycock and Mr.
J. It. Zimmerma n of the Metropolitan Pres
byterian Church.
The Evening Program.
The evening service consisted of excellent
musical selections and an addrtss by Mr.
Maydwell, the pastor, who spoke on "The
House of God."
The necessi;y. of erecting a new parsonage
was called to attention during the day's
celebration, and subscriptions were asked
for. Almost one-half of the desired amount
was subscribed at the morning services, and
before the close of the evening's exercises
sufficient money had been raised to insure
the beginning of the work at an early day.
The Waugh Church had Its beginning in
a small structure on Magsachusetts avenue,
between 3d and 4th streets northwest,
March 16, 1853, whe,n a Sunday school was
organized by Mr. Charles Lane. Later in
the same year itev. James H. Brown, pas
tor of the Wesley Chapel, formed the first
class consisting of twelve members. This
was the commencement of the church or
ganizatIon. Through Mr. Hanson Brown,
Waugh Church was enabled to obtain ihr e
of the five structures which have housed 1i
lie offered the house on Massachusetts ave
nue first . Next he gave a front room in his
house on C street. IDre long more room was
necessary, and during the summer the meet
ings were held in a tebt. But when winter
came on they were obliged to return to Mr.
Brown's house. in May, 1835, the little so
city of forty-three members removed to a
small church on the site of the present one,
which was named in honor of a prominent
Methodist bishop.
The membership gradually grew, and in
October. 1874, the present church was dedi
cated. For a number of years there was a
mortgaged indebtedness to worry over, but
the church is now frene from financial in

It Makes the Use of Money In Elea

Speeial Correspondence of . 1vening Star.
RICHMOND, Va., March 15, 1905.
- The concurrence of the house yesterday
in the action of the senate, passing the
B!drkadale pure elections bill, means
a good deal more to the state than
would appear on. the surface. Here
after no person who uses money to
further his poltical ambitions by un
dertaking to influence support in his be
half can hold office. Nor can any friend
of such candidate use money. Not that
alone, but no promise of reward or "loan'
of money will be recognized or coun
tenanced. The Barksdale bill is very strict.
Its provisions, in brief, are:
1. No candidate is to spend any money,
loan, promise any valuable thing or to al
low it to be done by his friends for the
purpose of influencing voters In his behalf.
2. Thirty days after an election for any
office all candidates are to file a written
statement, sworn to, showing what money,
if any, was used in said election by the
candidate, the amount thereof, to whom
and when paid, which shall embrace all
knowledge of money used by any friend
or adherent and for what purpose.
8. No certificate of election shall issue to
any candidate until such statement, duly
attested and sworn to, shall- be filed.
4. Such sworn statement is to be on file
at all times and open to public inspection;
candidates shall not enter upon office or
receive pay or emoluments thereof until
such notice is filed; violations of the law
shall make such persons as violate the same
liable for a fine of from $.500 to $5,000 and
imprisonment from one month to a year; if,
in cases of contest, it shall be shown that
contestant shall have complied with the
law, and it shall be proven that contestee
has violated the law, then such office is to
go to contestant.
The law is the most rigid as regards elec
tions that has ever been proposed, and is
far more stringent than those at present
on the subject. The bill will go to the gov
ernor, and there is no question that he will
sign it promptly.
There is a deep interest in the law. The
present party plans of the dominant party
provide for a state primary to nominate
candidates, and some believe that the use
of money might have been contemplated.
The new law will make it impossible to use
money in the campaign. It will be a great
factor in the coming campaign, and will, it
is believed, put a stop to the reports that
offices in the state have gone to the high
est bidder. In view of the fact that the
number of candidates for governor are at
present large, and the election of a suc
cessor to Senator Martin is to be held in
1905, the effect of the law on the candi
dates is being discussed in all sections. The
demand for the law is broadcast. The
chief fight in the house against the meas
ure was by Col. R. E. Lee, Jr., member of
the house from Fairfax.
The general assembly has agreed upon the
causes for removal of Judge Campbell, the
gentleman who chastised the Rev. C. H.
Crawford last summer, and notice that the
charges will be taken up by both houses
will be served on the defendant at once.
The case will probably come up the first
week in April. There is considerable doubt
as to whether the necessary majority of
both branches of the general assembly will
be recorded against the judge.
A movement is on foot to have the gen
eral assembly take a recess about the last
of June, refer the code revision to a com
mission, and to reassemble here the last of
September to complete the work.

Eealth Officer's Report Relative to
Proposed Location.
Dr. W. C. Woodward, the health officer,
has submitted a report to the Commis
sloners relative to the proposed location
of the new quarantine station authorized
In the last appropriation act to be erected
>n the grounds of the Washington asylum.
Dr. Woodward says:
'An inspection of the grounds shows but
:ne location thit can be regarded as even
reasonably satisfactory, viz., a location to
the north of E street extended, on a part
3f the land now used as a nursery. This
site is, however, in rather close proximity,
especially when the relation~s between the
proposed quarantine station and the small
pox hospital are considered, to a brick
residence, now occupied, it is understood,
by an employe of the District government
sonnected with the nursery, sometimes
lesignated as the gunner's house, having
been erected for the use of the gunner
in charge of the powder magazine formerly
ocated on this reservation. It seems de
sirable, therefore, to have this residence
rnade a part of the proposed quarantine
station, and this can be done with advan
:age. The plans of such station will have

s or is not to be used. It is respectfully

Growth Marked-Many Evils Attribut
ed to It.
From the London Speaker.
Even the most casual of newspaper read
era must have noticed how many have beet
the cases of cocaine poisoning during th<
last few years. Either the drug has beei
prescribed in the first instarce by a phy
sician or-what is more common-has beet
an ingredient in some patent medicine to
relieve nerve pain. Its value as a loca
anaesthetic and its immediate tonic effec
upon the nervous system are so markec
that the patient grows more and more to
depend on it for relief; the cocaine habi
is induced, and the _victim soon becomes t
physical and mental wreck. The danger
attaching to the indiscriminate use of thii
alkaloid of the cocoa plant, its fascinatior
for neurotic subjects, are now well recog
nized among physicians of repute, but I
forms a too frequernt constituent in man3
popular medicines. for it is a cheap drug
and, unhappily, there are (at least, so fai
as America is concerned) no restrictions e
laws regulating the sale. It is difficult ti
exaggerate the subtle and pernicious influ
enice of this drug. The absence of thos<
unpleasant after effects which attend in
diulgence in morphia or chloral, the sens
of physical well being and mental exhilara
tion consequent, makes the drug more fas
dnating to the jaded worker, wtio is firmi
possessed of the belief that he can dds
continue its use wher he pleases. Cocain
ism remarks Dr. T. D. Crothers (in his nea
book on "Morphinism and Narcomaniaf
From Other Drugs") is a new disease of
civilization. Its prevalence is certainly r
grim commentary upon existing social con
ditions, for it seems to fall most heavill
upon the extremes of society-the pich an
the impoverished classes. Like other so
cial sores, its real cure cannot be effectec
permanently by any legislative act, for the
drug habit is merely another aspect of tha1
big social problem which long ago frettei
the soul of Ruskin and still confronts so,

may and should be done in rendering moen

German Chemists Make a Substitute
for Indigo.
From the Pittsburg Gazette.
Probably the oldest dyestuff known tc
men is indigo. It might be too much to sa)
that Noah's garments were colored witt
it when he took his historic cruise, but 11
is hardly to be doubted that Joseph's coal
of many colors owed at least a good pari
of its brilliance to the use of this commor
article. Indigo has been found in the Egyp
tian pyramids, in the ruined cities of Baby
lonia and in the shops and the houses of
Pompeii. It is the product of many differ
ent plants, is found in nearly all countries
and has for untold ages been used by the
savage and the enlightened alike.
And yet at the present time indigo is pro
duced in commercially important quantities
in but two sections of the globe-Centra)
America and India. in the neighborhood
of Bengal. These are the last strongholds
of an industry that was once worldwide.
The chemist has succeeded in improving or
the roundabout process of nature to suct
an extent that the indigo farmer, like the
cochineal raiser, has been almost driver
from the business. That it still survives it
India and Central America is due in bott
cases rather to the demand of native tribes
who will accept no substitute, however ex
cellent, than to the requirements of,civili
zation, although a considerable quantity ih
still exported for special purposes to the
United States and Europe. It is said tha
there are 150 species of indigo-producing
plants known to the botanists. Only one ii
cultivated in Central America. and that is
known scientifically as "Isatis tinctora,'
but popularly as giquislete.
It Is a shrubbery annual, growing two or
three feet in height, with pinnate leaves oi
a dull bluish green. It produces long,
beautiful recemes of pale red flowers, which
in turn give way to hundreds of tiny seeds.
The Indigo planter sows his seed about
April 1 in drills one foot apart. From thai
time forward constant weeding and hoeing
are necessary to keep down the growth of
ginger, reeds, ferns and grasses that would
otherwise retard the growth of the crop
and further injure it by the necessity of be
ing cut with it. By the last of June or the
1st of July the plants begin to bloom and
the first crop is harvested. The plants are
cut off close to the ground with a short,
sharp machete, tied in bundles and carried
to the steeping vats.
* Facts About the Congressmen.
The Congressional Directory prepared for
the special session of the Senate shows
that the law is the prevailing profession of
the members of the u.pper house of Con
gress. For the first time in several years
all of the states in the Union are repre

the members are lawyers. Out of the bal

others are bankers, miners, business men
and politician. The average age Is found
to be fifty-six, with Senator Pettus of Ala
bama the oldest, 82, and Bailey of Texas
the youngest, 40.- Senator Pettus is a sur

members fought in the civil war. Of college
graduates there are fifty-five, and seven
of the members are foreign born. Kearns

From the London 1fxpress.
- Two curious Instances of doing good by
stealth have within the last week occurred
in London. and there is apparently no doubt
that the welldoer has been the same itdliA
ual in both cases.
As was reported, an elderly gentleman
walked into the Fkgewere road branch of .
1 the Church Army, put down a bank note
for tl.(sr). and, refu ling hIs name. walked
1 out. From inquiries it appears that the
f1.(0 which the Society for the Prepaga,.
tion of the Gospel in Foreign Parts wacs re
ported to have received arrived in precisel
a similar manner. Other societies have aiso
benefited largely from individuals of the
same disposition, and the anonymous <donog
of substantial sums is not so uncommon ari
might be imagined.
Tife secretary of the British and Foreign
Bible Society said that at one time a fsrm
er, with hay tied around his legs to protect
his trousers, used to walk in, put down a
note for f50 or so, and when he died left $
legacy. but not his name. Two more strik
ing instances are those of the Nattnal
Lifeboat Institution and the London Ilible
woman's Mission, whose otices are withira
a stone's throw of each other, the former in
John street, Adelphi, and the latter in the
Adelphi Terrace. Mr. Dibdin, the lifeboat
secretary, was going into his outer office
one day, when a tall man entered and saidi
"Is Mr. Dibdin In?" That gentleman re.
plied "Yes; do you wish to see him?" "Nol
if you'll give him this envelope into his owN
hands it will do as well," said the strangert
and he handed over an envelope and lef

entered and said: "Oh, as I happened to be
passing I saw the name, so I thought I
would just look in and see if you want anY
money." Mr. Di-hdin assured him they
wanted money badly-always did. The old
gentleman, however. instead of prodthting
his money, began talking politics and elicited
Mr. Dibdin's views on Mr. Balfour and
other politicians. It happened that the
visitor heartily approved of Mr. Dibdin's
principles, and soon he pulled a bank note
from his pocket and put it on the desk.
Still he kept up the political oonversati,rt
without a break, and soon out came another
bank note. Mr. Dibdin talked polities as
long as he could, and the old gentleman 4
put down note after ncte, until a pile worth
?2,000 lay on the desk. He would not give
his name, walked out. and was never seen
or heard of again by the society.
In the case of the Biblewoman's Missloi 4
an elderly gentleman for some years called
once a year, asked what the deficit was, put
down the money.and went away. On the
last occasion he gave i!.Ms) and in all M4,000.

Language in Diplomacy.

The czar, in briefly proposing the health
of the German crown prince at a compli

in French, while his illustrious guest, as
In duty bound, responded in the same Ian-,
guage. This may stem all the more sur
prising, as Nicholas II is a perfect master
of the mother language of his wife; but it
must be remembered that at the court of St.
Petersburg French is a tongue which is
more in use on state occasions than Rus
sian. For one thing. French is the usual
means of converse between the Polish and
Russian members of the nobility, so thatl
at court functions one might almost sup-.
pose one's self to be on the Seine instead of~
the Neva. Alexander II corresponded with
his uncle William I of Pru-ssia in Gernman;
but Alexander III c'ame to the throne with
a strong anti-Teutonic bias, and never
would pay his German visitors the comipli
men.t of speaking to them in their own lan
guage. In responding to his hea,lth, on the
occasion of his own first sovereign visit to'
Berlin, he used French. though the toast
had been proposed by the old empe:ror in
German; and Nicholas II continues the
custom of his father. ltismarck's own rule
at the foreign office was to reply in French
to the dispatches of other gov'ernments if:
written in French, but otherwise to reply in
German, as in the ease, for example. of

It is a theory common!y held that ani

writer in a weekly paper, who has observed
nature to some purpose, holds to the less
popular theory that the habit of hibernation
is rather to avoid the pangs and penalties'
of famine. But surely we have had warm'
enough winters during the past few years
to establish the soundness of this dioctrine,

and so many birds fly away from our Bar

larvae, worms and snails--all these are sel

famine of insect life in the fresh water of
