CITY AND DISTRICT.
OPEN-AIR SERVICE HELD.
Cathedral Committee Report Dis
tributed at Mount St. Albans.
The first open-air service of the sum
mer was held at Mount St. Albans yes
terday afternoon. The service was con
ducted by Rev. George F. Dudley, rector
of St. Stephen's. The boy choir furnish
ed the musical part of the service, ac
companied by members of the Marine
Band.
The report of the committee on the
cathedral was distributed during the serv
ice. It stated, in part:
"The efTort last spring for raiding the
fund for the construction of the crypt
chapel of the cathedral was successful,
the diocese responding eagerly to this at
tempt to erect a fitting memorial to its
beloved first bishop, and enough was
quickly obtained to assure Its completion.
The foundation builders' service at the
breaking of the ground for the chapel?
the Bethlehem Chapel of the Nativity
has been the only special service of im
portance that has taken place this year.
It was held Af?cension day, May 28. 1008,
in the presence of several thousand peo
ple.
"Besides the endeavor to obtain a suffi
cient sum to build the Bethlehem chapel,
it was further decided, a year ago, to
try to raise the amount necessary for
laying the whole foundation of the cathe
dral, this, rather than the building of a
single part only, being the next step in
the process of construction. Tt was
thought by the architects that the foun
dation should be entirely finished at one
time, so that it should be well bonded
together* to insure the greatest possible
f-tability.
"The various committees In different
parts of the country for helping the cathe
dral are being revived. Meetings are to
be held in Philadelphia and Pittsburg and
in time we may hope to have the com
mittees distributed widely over the coun
*r>"- ^e hope our own committee may
be enlarged and may perhaps be made
more active In the near future, and that
a general meeting of delegates from the
various committees lie held next y?ar."

While playing in front of his home, 022

Setback for "Near Beer."
/'Near l>eer" has received a setback In
Kansas under the pure food law. There
has been considerable discussion as to
whether "near beer." containing a low
percentage of alcohol, could be sold in
the prohibition states. The Department
of Agriculture did not stop to bother with
the technical question whether this "near
beer" was a violation of the prohibition
jiw. but analyzed some of the beer and
iOiind that It all ran over 4 per cent in
alcohol, which was about what would he
expected of any full-grown beer. The
whole lot was confiscated as misbranded

Automobile and Sheds Burn Up in
South Washington?Gas
Plant in Danger.
Absence of water service along Doug
lass avenue, Kenilworth, this morning,
contributed to the destruction by fire of
the homes of Augustus Moten and

what they could to fight the fire. Unable
to accomplish much, the alarm was sent

bors.
The damape is estimated at ?1 350. Both
houses were insured.

"FINDER" NOT "KEEPER."
When He Is a Policeman Ring
Goes to General Fund.
"Finders keepers" was not written for
the members of the Washington police
department, and is not true so far as they
are concerned.
Policeman Beauregard of the sixth pre
cinct recently made application to Police
Chief Richard Sylvester to have returned
to him a diamond ring which he found
in July, 1008. and which is In the hands
of the property clerk and still unclaimed.
Reporting on the matter. Corporation
Counsel E. H. Thomas said to the Com
missioners:
"Ordinarily the finder of property has
a srood title to the article found as against
all the world except the true owner.
"As to lost property found by members
of the police department, however, the
rule of the common law has been changed
by sections 410, 41t? and 417 of the Re
vised Statutes relating to the District of
Columbia. By sections 410 and 41tf, po
licemen are required to turn over such ar
ticles to the property clerk of the police
department, and by section 417 the prop
erty clerk is required to hold them for a
period of six months and then to sell
them, 'and the proceeds of such sale
shall be paid into the policemen's fund.' "
SERVICE OF HUMANITY.
Baccalaureate Sermon Delivered to
Howard University Students.
Continuing the annual commencement
ceremonies at Howard University, tne
baccalaureate sermon was preached yes
terday afternoon at 4 o'clock in Rankin
Memorial Hall by Dr. W. P. Thirkield,
president of the university.
The students assembled in the main hall
of the university, under the direction of
Dr. W. V. Tunnelle, and marched to the
chapel, led by the choir. Prayer was
offered by Dr. George O. little and a
liberal collection was taken for the Col
ored Social Settlement House, which is in
charge of Miss Florence Bibb, a grad
uate of the university.
Dr. Thirkield took as the text for his
sermon Luke, x:27?"Thou slialt love the
Liord, thy God, and thy neighbor as thy
self." It was a plea for the service of
humanity, under the inspiration of the
love of God.
Dr. Thirkield said that love is the basis
of all moral excellence and is the hignest
quality of the moral life. God al>ove all
is a holy loving will. The center of per
sonality is the will. The basis of a holy
life is not mere emotion and sentiment,
but unity with the ethical will of God.
This is the foundation of character.
"In the midst of trials and wrongs?re
verses and discouragements?get the atti
tude of Jesus, who seemed to look on the
world from above, with optimism, cour
age, vision, hope."
Addressing the class he said:
"Great problems await you. We are not
here required to solve problems. We are
here to do our duty?to serve our genera
tion?to do justly, love mercy and walk
humbly with our G*?d. Jesus was the
great problem solver. He does it not by
proposing patent nostrums for present
ills. He did It first by His life of love, gen
tleness and sacrifice, and then He set
great principles in motion and let them
work their way into the thought and con
science of mankind.. He forgot self. He
gave His life. Keep ever in thought our
motto: 'Culture for Service.'
"Be grounded in the doctrine of the
essential nobility of exaltation of service.
Let your sympathy and service be as
broad as humanity."
The class day exercises of the graduat
ing class of the College of Arts and
Scinece and Teachers' College were begun
this afternoon at 3 o'clock.
PREPARING FOR CRABBING.
Season Will Begin at Rock Point,
Md., Late This Week.
At Rock Point, Md., in the Wicomico
river and at other points along the Poto
mac and its tributaries the men who en
gage in crabbing have been busily em
ployed a week or longer in overhauling the
boats, lines and other paraphernalia used
in the industry in preparation for the
starting of the crabbing season this week.
During the warm weather of last week
quite a number of fine big crabs were
caught in the lower river, but the com
ing of the cool rainy spell put a stop to
,the crab fishing for the time. In tlie lat
ter part of this week the crabbers will<
set their lines and the crabbing season
will be on. If the coming season i* as
successful as was that of last year, many
thousand hard-shelled crabs will be caught
and shipped to th;s market. I.ast year
from Rock Point alone it was not un
common for the steamers coming to this
city to take aboard a hundred or more
barrels of the shell fish. Soft crabs were
being caught In good numbers In the Po
tomac before the recent northeaster, and
it is expected that the shipments of the
delicacy to this city will be resumed
within the next few days.

HONORS TO OISHOP GALLOWAY
METHODISTS PAY TRIBUTE TO
DEAD PRELATE.
Ministers and Laymen at Memorial
Meeting Unite in Praise of
Great Churchman.
Ministers and laymen united at the
Mount Vernon Place M. B. Church South
jesterday afternoon In paying tribute to
the memory of the late Bishop Charles B.
Galloway of Mississippi. Included in the
large audience of Methodists was a large
delegation of the Mississippi Society of
Washington.
In speaking of the dead prelate, Harry
Peyton, formerly assistant to the Attor-1
ney General, said: "He was a powerful,
militant, cavalier bishop, and I often
think that had he lived in the days of the
X rusaders what a magnificent knight he
would have made. Like Henry of
Navvarre, his white plume would have
waved at the forefront of battle for his
God. It was so in his own day in a
modern way."
Mr. Peyton declared that in his esti
mation no man possessed more compelling
oratory and more magnetism than Gal
loway?chosen to the episcopacy from the
editorial chair of a newspaper.
Rev. J. Howard Wells, pastor of Mount
\ ernon Church, spoke at some length, and
during his remarks declared that no man
was more influential in welding the bonds
of understanding and comity between the
two branches of the Methodist Kpiscopal
family than the late bishop.
Rev. J. W. R. Snmwalt, District su
perintendent of Methodist Kpiscopal
churches, also spoke of the Intiuenc<v the
deceased prelate exercised to bring the
two branches of Methodism together.
"All Methodism knew and loved and
honored him." said Dr. Sumwalt. "Since
the news of his death came the Methodist
Episcopal Church has mourned with as
sincere, genuine and profound a sorrow
as the members of the church he chose
to serve. Methodism has lost one of her
leaders in his soing from us. He was
one of those who. after the separation
and the strife, reached out his hand,
seeking for a common ground on which
we all might stand, and now across that
ever-narrowing gulf he is one of the
stoutest bridges.
"He was a man; and what a privilege
and a help it Is to know such a one!?
a man whom office cannot deflect, whom
the spoils of office cannot buy, who can
look a demagogue in the eye' and damn
his flatteries without a flicker of fear!"
Rov. Dr. W. V. Tudor, first pastor of
Mount Vernon Church, said Bishop Gal
loway was the youngest prelate In the
Methodist Episcopal Church South, hav
intr been elected in his thirty-seventh
year. "Clergymen have been known to
aspire to high office as a gratification
? o their ambitions." said Dr. Tudor, "but
such ambition rould not grasp, and did
not grasp. Dr. Galloway."
A quartet composed of Mrs. Charles
Baylev, Miss Marjorle Folin, Miss Flor
ence Keen and Mrs. Salome W. Sanders
sang "Into the Silent Lands" and "Abide
With Me." A contralto solo, "There Is

WRECKED AND DESOLATE.
Dnce Popular Excursion Buildings at
Lower Cedar Point Disappearing.
The buildings on the old excursion
ground at Lower Cedar Point, years
ago one of the popular points on the
Potomac, are slowly disappearing, and
it is but a question of a few years be
fore they will all be gone. During one
of the spring gales that have swept
over the river with unusual violence this
year, the old dining pavilion, where the
excursion parties from this city were
served oysters, soft shell crabs, fish and
other products of the water, was blown
down, and it now lies on the ground, a
mass of broken beams and twisted Iron.
The dancing pavilion has been under
mined by the water, and looka as if it
would float away on any high tide With
in the past few years the river has made
great inroads upon tiie land at Cedar
point, in spite of the building of water
breaks and other efforts to stop It.
Cedar point has the largest and finest
wharf on the river, and is a stopping
place for the river steamers, but no ex
cursionists have gone there in the past
fifteen years.

COLORED PEOPLE'S NEED.
Prof. Lawson Favors Moral and
Social Development.
"The Vacant Chair in Our Educational
System" was the principal topic discussed
before a special session of the Interde
nominational Bible College at the Ply
mouth Congregational Church yesterday
afternoon.
Prof. Jesse Lawson said: "The great
need of the colored people Is moral and
social development, and so far as their
immediate education is concerned, the
emphasis* should be placed on morality
rather than upon intellectuality. Under
our present system we are producing
smart men, and I fear at the expense of
great man."
L. M. Hershaw said that greater eco
nomic and social efficiency should be de
veloped In the education" of the colored
people.
.Rev. Sterling N. Brown thought that
greater familiarity with the Bible was
a source of strength, and he urged a
searching of the scriptures.

the attention of the District Commission
ers for local application by Commissioner
Macfarland.
The president of the District board
found in the discussions many arguments
for improvement which have been urged
before Congress, along the line of con
verting alleys into minor streets, the
reclamation of the Anacostia flats, the
development of the park system in the
newer sections of the city and the im
provement of the water front.
Will Try to Apply Ideas.
"I followed closely the addresses and
discussions at the city planning confer
ence sessions," said Commissioner Mac
farland today, "with a view .to getting all
the practicable suggestions possible for
the improvement of our conditions here.
"A number of practical suggestions
were made, which, either by act of Con
gress or by amendment of building,
health, police or other regulations, could,
I think, be put in force here with ad
vantage. I shall have those suggestions
tabulated and take them up with the
Commissioners with a view to such action
as will be most profitable.
"The recent decision of the Supreme
Court of the United States to which ref
erence was frequently made upheld the
validity of the law providing different
limits of heights for buildings in different
sections of the city, sustains the difference
made here between the height of build
ings on resident streets and the height of
buildings on business streets and may be
used still further to regulate the height
of buildings by sections instead of streets.
Police Power Invoked.
"It is clear also that much can be
done under the general police power
for the improvement of sanitary and
other conditions. Of course, what we
want immediately here is a new law
that will meet the decision of the Su
preme Court of the United States in
the Brandenburg case, so as to perfect
the conversion of alleys into minor
streets, together with a better provi
sion for houses with low rents for
those who have been living in ? the
cheap alley houses and elsewhere
which have been condemned under the
insanitary buildings law. The work
under that act is hound to go on and
already something less than '-',000 peo
ple have been displaced.
"The President's homes commission
has suggested that provision be made
for a loan of money by Congress to
building associations organized for the
purpose of building sanitary houses,
for such low rentals as will bring them
within the reach of unskilled labor,
since private philanthropic effort has
not sufficed for this purpose.
"Of course, our general plans for the
improvement of the park system, in
cluding the treatment of the Rock
Creek valley and of the Anacostia ba
sin, and the wharf.front, will be press
ed before Congress. Every citizen
ought to see the exhibit of city plans
now being shown at the Raleigh Ho
tel."

Playgrounds Around Churches.

study committee. Mr. Boville said (he
committee wanted to establish play
grounds on the open spaces surrounding

TESTING MINE EXPLOSIVES.
Twenty-Nine Different Samples
Tried by Geological Survey.
The peolojfioal survey has been testing
different explosives for use in coal mines.
It has tried out twenty-nine different sam
ples at the experiment station outside
Pittsburg: and has put seventeen of them
on the permissible list. Other specimens
will be tested as rapidly as possible.
The explosives are tired in a pteel gal
lery in the presence of fire damp, air
damp and coal dust and of mixtures of the
three. Each explosive is tried ten times
before being declared safe. One of the
chief features o fthe explosive that is
noted is the dnration of its flame. This
with safe explosives is much shorter than
the flame of black powder, which is com
monly used in the mines and which has
been adopted as a unit of measure.
Proposed Confederate Memorial.
The Confederate Veterans in the Dis
trict are manifesting much interest in the
memorial building it is proposed to erect
in Richmond. According to Capt. J. M.
Hickey of the lo^al association of Con
federates, the executive committee of the
[Confederate Memorial Association has ob
taind a site in Richmond for the erection
of a memorial building. The site, valued
at $25,000, is on Monument avenue, near
the monument of Jefferson Davis, and it
is proposed by the committee to begin the
erection of the building at once. This
building, to cost no less than $'JH0.<iOO, will
contain a large auditorium and museum,
where relics, books and historical matter
pertaining to the south and the war will
be kept.
The site was donated by the city of
Richmond.
