The mutto' f the mi.-don. taken from the hook of ho.'ks, inti: ites its purpose better perhaps than would a more effusive state ment from its fi lends. The motto is, "Thi Son of ai in is come to seek and to save that wich was lost." To rescue fallen num-inity and restore It to its pristine purity; to let the light and cheer r,f l'hristi:inity enter into s n-dark ened li is tIhe oa'n ilbject of the Peo ple'- Misiton. its oficers and its workers.

The board of trus tees includes, besides the officers named. Messrs. R. L. Pile, J. H. Barnes. Sigel Brown and Thomas Bridge. Services are held In the auditorium every evening and three times on Sunday. At the Sunday night meetings the full People's Mission Orchestra gives sacred concerth and furnishes orchestral accompanimentg for the singing. These volunteer musicians are assisted by volunteer organists and pianists. including Miss Mary Weigman, Mrs. Dessie G. Phelps.- Miss May Mc Michael and Mrs. Lucy Havell. The organ ists at the other meetings are Miss Sadie Taylor, Miss Etnma Troup, Master Roy Crowe. Was Tracey. Miss Henry. Miss Molle Lewis and Mr. James McCurdy. Services are held at the gospel hall branch, 11th and F streets southwest, the birthplace of the mission. Monday and George W. Havell, Evangelist. Friday evenings. The committee in charge of thse meetings is composed of Mrs. M. E. ('rroll. superintendeht; Mr. J. H. Barnes, Mr. John Gray and Mr. Walter Rice. It is the hope of the officers and members of the People's Mission that the Institution will have a home of its own-a modern mission building suitable for purposes of evangelistic work. The nucleus of a building fund has al ready been contributed by a lady who says she was attracted by the good work the mission is aceomplishing among citizens of Washington who have fallen Into ways of sin and dissipation. Her contribution will be placed in bank to be added to as the ways and means may justify. Sources of Revenue. Among the mission's sources of revenue Is the Mite Society, which was formed by Mrs. J. H. Barnes. In addition to raising funds for the work, this society has been a factor in bringing the workers and converts together in social gatherings and instilling unity and harmony in the work. The orchestra is composed of young Christian men, all of them volunteers, and their Sunday night concerts always attract large audiences. Many men prominent In the affairs of the District and nation have been secured to address the meetings. This was especially the case last winter when the Sunday night meetings were held In the Bijou Theater. The auditorium is open all day, and many weary wayfarers drop in to rest or pray. The interior is cool and inviting and a quiet retreat in which to while away an idle hour indoors from the heat and bustle of the besy avenue. Many sin oppressed people go there for counsel and advice from Evangelist McMichael, who is always at his post of duty, and who of late has been called upon to officiate at funerals and to visit the bedside of the sick and dying. Recently an old lady, weak from the effects of the intense heat and her efforts to get about. entered the auditorium, sank upon her knees, clutching one of the iron pillars, and uttered a fervent prayer. Mr. McMichael asked her if she was in trouble. "Oh, no." was her reply. "I saw this was a house of worship and I just drop ped in to say a quiet prayer and thank our Heavenly Father for his mercy and kindness to a poor old soul like me." In the recent reorganization of the Peo ple's Mission it was proposed to improve and enlarge the Evangelist, the little mis sion paper published every Thursday from the mission printery. Capt. Thomas H.. Mc Kee and Evangelist W. C. McMichael com prise the committee In charge of the publi cation, with Mr. Thomas C. Npyes as ad visory member or counselor. Personal Sketches. Mr. W. C. McMichael, the evangelist, was born in the little village of Washington Borough, Lancaster county, Pa., onl the banks of the Susquehanna river, September 10, 185i7. He was reared under religious in fluences, and at an early age he started tc learn the trade of printing In Wrightsville, York county. After finishing his time, or "graduating from the case,"' he finally drifted to Washington. While here he took up the study of infidelity. He also pub lished a monthly magazine and engaged In practice before the pension office as an at torney. -Again he took to drifting and went south. He became addicted to the drink habit and things went from bad to worse, as he ex presses It. Returning to Washington after more than three years' absence and after having been on a protracted spree for sev eral months, he stood one Sunday after noon at 7th street and Pennsylvania avenue contemplating suicide. At that moment, he says, a singer at a, mission open-air meeting near the corner sang a song which arrested his attention, and within a few moments he lived his life over again. He became a Christian and is now working in the cause with the man who sang the song, Mr. George W. Havell, one of his associate evangelists. Mr. McMichael has his offiee in the auditorium at 910 Pennsylvanin ave nue. In the Front ank1r Mr. George W. Havell is In the front rank of mission workers and Christian singers. He was born in England, but came to this country when a youth with his widowed mother, sister and brother, and went to work on a farm on the prairies of Illinois, Some of his friends refer to him as "t~he song and story evangelist." He has been engaged in active church and mission worg in this city for about twenty-five years. Two of his sons, bright young men, are members of the People's Mission orchestra. Mr. Havell holds a responsible position in the pension bureau. Rev. E. D. Bailey, the second assoeiate evangelist, is pastor of a prosperous church in New York. He has been closely identified with the People's Mission since its conception, and assists in the present work in an advisory capacity. Mr. Bailey has long been an active mission worker in Washington. and when he visits this elty can always be heard from the platform of the People's Mission. Mrs. Margaret U. Carroll, the missionary, who Is referred to s "Mother Carroll" by members of the mission and its converts, was born in Dorchester county, Md. She has led a Christian life ever since her girl hood. She came to Washington with her husband about fourteen years ago, and has since been engaged in missionary work, in which she has been very successfuL. Mrs. Carroll has also accomplhe great goed in her works of charity and from house-to house visitations. Anmong the werkers who are and have been associated witha her Hru,Mrs. U. D. Bailey and Mrs. W.

A dispatch from New York last night says: The democratic national executive committee was in session five hours today. and upon adjournment gave out the follow -ing statement: "At the meeting of the executive com 'mittee of the democratic national commit tee all the members were present except CoL. James M. Guffey of Pennsylvania, who is Ill; also Chairman Taggart, Vice Cl air man Nicol, Treasurer Peabody and Secre tary Woodson. "The location of national headquarters was fixed at 1 West 34th street, c,nslsting of the second and third floors and the base ment of the Century building. "It was determined not to open branch headquarters in the west or to name addi tional committees for the present. "Plans of organization were taken up and thoroughly nmapped out. "Chairman Cowherd of the congressional committee was in conference with the ex ecutive committee during the afternoon." No Western Branch Headquarters. - This epitome of give hours' work, author ised by Chairman Sheehan, does not go into any details of the meeting, and members of the committee were also very reticent, al though the statement was made that the session was harmonious and the conclusions were reached without discord. Chairman Taggart denied that the decision not to es fablish branch headquarterA in tne west at present was due to any differen::es about location or because he had suggested In diananpolis in preference to Chicago Every member of the committee said that the existing differences between Pi-trick H. McCarren and Charles T. Murpay in Greater New York were not taken up. There was a general intercha..ge of views concerning conditions in states whiah the democrats deem essential to democratic suc cess. The general conditions n New York, New Jersey, West Virginia, Indiana and Wisconsin were discussed, and men from these states gave the committee such infor mation as they had. Chicago's Fight for Branch Quarters. A dispatch from Chicago last night says: The democratic national leaders here made a final stand today in defense of their con tention in favor of the location of head quarters in Chicago. Former Mayor John P. Hopkins and National Committeeman Roger C. Sullivan communicated with the eastern managers, in conference at the Hoffman House in New York, after sub mitting a final argument. It was represented that even if the na tional committee should decide that Illinois is not worth fighting for in the presidential contest, the Indiana campaign can be hap died more effectively from Chicago than from Indianapolis, the home of Chairman Taggart, where, they are satisfied, there is a strong pull at work to locate the center of democratic action. Taggart Second to Sheehan. It seems to be understood as a result of the meeting of the democratic executive committee today, and conferences which were held after the committee at ed that the executive committee will lave act ive charge of the presidential campaign, and is, in fact, a campaign committee. This will mean that the Important work of management will devolve upon William F. Sheehan and the men selected by Chair man Taggart as his associates. All matters of policy and procedure will be determined by the executive committee. As announced by Chairman Taggart at the time he appointed the executive committee, Senator Gorman will act in an advisory capacity to the executive committee. This accounts for the frequent conferences and exchanges of messages between the sen ator and members of the committee today. After Mr. Sheehan and Mr. Gorman had been in conference this evening Mr. Shee han sent for Mr. Taggart and held a con ference lasting late into the night, in which the general policy and management of the campaign were discussed. Lamont's Boom for Governor. Whenever the Question of a candidate for governor of New York state this fall was disc~ussed, Daniel S. Lamont was the man under consideration. In fact, there is lit tle doubt among the lesser leaders in the party in the interior of the state and among the independenjts in this city that President Cleveland's Secretary of War will be the choice of the state convention. Local leaders discussed with considerable interest the result of the pool made by the Herald of the democratic county chairmen in the interior of the state, and they made no secret of their pleasure Qver the pro nounced lead of Mr. Lamont over all others. So strong has the sentiment in favor of Mr. Lamont's nomination become that sev eral of the prospective candidates from this section of the city have gIven up all hope of obtaining the nomination and have told their friends to stop -talking of their "booms." Hill's Barrel for Tamont. Incidentally it was learned that James J. Hill, the head of the Great Northern Rail road Company, of which Mr. Lament is vice president, was taking an active Inter est in the nomination of his business col league, and that he had given the New York managers of the democratic organiza tion his word that if Mr. Lamont is nomI nated he will have a large campaign fund. Lamont is the strongest man to be named as the head of the state ticket this year. Mr. Lament is favored also by the national leaders of the party who met him in Wash ington during President Cleveland's admin istrations, and who are desirous that every thing possible shall be done here to place the thirty-nine votes of New York state in the Parker column in the electoral college. McClellan Not a Candidate. It was announced at the Hoffman House that Mayor McClellan would not be a candi date. One of the state leaders said that he had talked with Mr. Murphy recently and had expressed a preference for Mayor Mc Clellan's nomination, whereupon the Tam many leader exclaimed: "What, take George B. McClellan out of the mayors offce at this time. It is not to be consid ered for a moment. His service to the city and to the democratic organization of New York city is too Important to consider. his retirement until his term is finished under any consideration." Cleveland for Jersey Governor. A dispatch from Trenton last night says: It leaked out In peoitical eircles today that James Smith, member of the national dems ocratic committee, is anxious to have Grover Cleveland accept the neoemlao for governor. To his intimate friends Smith has said that he believee the carrying of New Jersey for Parker and Dayts depends upon the acceptance of the nominatiem for governor by Cleveland Mr. Cleveand is at his snmmer home in New Hammsire. He .mas never said that be would not accept the nomination for the chdef eimeeutive ofie eof the state, and it is believed that he would not decline it.

A dispatch from New York says: The fight between the La Follette and Spooner factions in Wisconsin, besides endangering the success of the republican national ticket, Is believed by democrats to have al ready cost the party a United States sena torship through the strife it has engen det'ed. nI SEIZUBE WAS LEGAL. Venezuela Claims She Did Not Trans gress the Law. The official action and attitude of the Vernezuelan government in the asphalt eon troversy, in which United States interests are endangered, is set out very briefly in the following .cablegram received- here by Senor Pulildo, the -Venezuelan .charge -d'af faires, from the minister of foreign affairs at. Caracas: - "The government of Venezuela requested 3 competent court to declare forfeited- Ham, ilton's concession because of non-fulfl ment of obligations. "The property Was seized as a precaution ary measure in conformity with law." Hamilton's concession, as the grant orig inally made by the Venezuelan government was known, is now the property of the New York and Bermudez Company, which, ac cording to recent information received at the State Department, by decree of the Venezuela courts, has been put into the hands of a receiver. It appears the com pany was required to construct certain public works in connection with the conces sion, and the failure to meet its alleged ob ligations'in these respects was, according to Mr. Pulido's understanding, the reason for the course taken by the Venezuelan govern ment. The action taken by Venezuela, Mr. 9 Pulido says, is"one d'e'igned entirely to pro tect Its own irftereste, and is such as would 3 be adopted under similar circumstances by any private c6rporation or individual. Con trary to the idfipressibn which prevails, that the asphalt cbntroversy was settled by the decree of the Supreme Court a year or more ago, Mr. Pulido says the decision of the court at that tine simply determined the question f ownership of the concession between two rival American companies, viz., the New 'York a,nd Bermudez Company and the Warrint-Qui#lan syndidhte. It had nothing to dq with'the present condition, 3 viz., the repdrted failure of the company to meet its obi gations. Mr. Pulido aismissps as trivial and un worthy of serkbus coisideration statements which have appee,red of alleged unfriend liness on the art:Of Venezuelans towards citizens of thh',.nited States. In that con nection he ba received, a letter recently from the mI7t ' foreign affairs, in cloSing clip frq'1 t*ro~f the promineht papers of VeBiWTa epressinig warm sym pathy with this country and its institutions. The basis of the 'editorial comment along these lines is found in the recent act of President Castro, placing a wreath of laurels, entwined with the American. and Venezuelan colors, at the foot of the monu ment erected in Caracas to george Wash ington. This occurred on the 4th of July, at which time the president made an ad dress in which the strongest expressions of friendship were made for the sister republic in North America. To Examine Enlisted Men. A board of officers has been appointed to meet at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. Septem ber 1 next, for the -competitive examina tion of such enlisted men as may he ordered before it to determine their fitness for promotion to the grade of second lieu tenant in the army. T. he detail for the board is as follows:. Captain J. C. W. Brooks. Artiliery Corps; Captain Rober-t3 A. Brown. 4th Cavalry; Captain Jbbri B. Stone. assistant surgeon; Captain Guy G.

Navy 'Becruiiting Parties, In a short time the Navy Department will send out recruiting parties, and in order to meet the Treasury Department's decision that the expenses of these par ties could not be paid by the government the officers will be ordered to large cities3 for permanent duty and will make brief excursions from those centers. United States Beats Germany. "Germany yields the first place in beer production to the United States," declares Frank Mason. consul general at Berlin, in a report to the Department of Commerce and Labor.
