TTia preacher spoke of the proclamation
*a4 observance of a national day of
thanksgiving ax marking the essentially
religious nature of the nation, and it lts*df
* matter for thanksgiving. The special
reasons for thanksgiving In Seattle at thta
v™* Wm we,t "Pon aad at the same tine
the danger of a re#ard for material things
alone pointed out. Wealth was sometime*
a curse, like the hoard of the Nlbeiungs,
and the nations which had contributed
most to the cause of human progress had
not always been great In wealth or ex
tent. The first Thanksgiving was cele
brated over a harvest r> aped from the
graves of the dead, and the harvest of
American history was mor» in the llvaa <;
those who had sacrificed wealth and blood
than In those who have heaped treasure
together. The saint* and heroes and rrl
ants of our land Were not so much the
millionaires, the capitalists and the mo
nopolists aa the men who had spent their
treasure and shed their blood and died in
defense of righteousness and purity and
truth. This principle was then applied to
the Individual life and men were bidden
to recognise a harvest of the soul eveu
where only adversity had been their lot.
Thus thanksgiving might be the privi
lege of all, the speaker maintained, and.
although doubtless many would he" the
days of weeping, tha days of waiting and
the days of warring, yet praise would rise
triumphant over all. Thanksgiving would
conquer sorrow and praise would conquer
pain, and
"Our days of praise shall ne'er be past,
While life and thought and being last,
And immortality endures."
The offertory after the sermon was sung
by Miss Tester and Mr. Williams most
pleasingly, and the collection having been
taken up for the "fund for aged and infirm
clergy/' the service was closed with the
benediction by the rector of St. Mark's and
the singing of the recessional "Ancient of
Days."
Tbe union services of the Grace M. E.,
Calvary Presbyterian. Market Street Bap
tist and Third Cumberland churches were
held at the Third CumlM-rland Presbyte
rian church on Twenty-second avenue at
11 o'clock a. m. The church wae very
neatly and artlatlcally deoorated with ivy
and autumn leaves Intermingled with mot
toes on the walla and potted plants around
the rostrum. The church was comfort
ably filled, and.the musk* was chiefly con
gregational except a well rendered an
them by a quartette. The pastors present
were Rev. W. H. Selieck, of Grace M. E.;
Rev. Donald Rosa, of Cslvary Presbyte
rian; Rev. R. F. Powell, Cumberland Pres
byterian. and Rev. Thomas D. Baldwin,
of Market Street Baptist, by whom the
sermon was delivered, which was unique,
grkphlc and enjoyable. In a style thor
oughly his own and had a good effect upon
tha audlsace, ahowing the loving kindness
of God through silent forcea to this nation,
taking tbe hfatory of Moses aa a basis. Th«
speaker showed that God's kindness was
shown to the Jews sa a people In silent
rather than In great manifest or outward
things, as symbolic of what he was doing
for mankind.
An offering was taken for the benefit of
the poor, to be turned over to the charity
organisation of the city. The entire ser
vice was a very enjoyable one. The prayer
offered by Rev. Mr. Selieck was a soul
stirring effort and touched all hearts.

Thanksgiving day was generally ob
served in Ballard, all tbe mills hcjng closed

LONDON, Nov. 16.—Over 309 American
men and women and a few English per
sonages celebrated Thanksgiving day by
a dinner at the Ho'el Cecil today. The par
ty included John Hay, the United States
atnbaaaxdor. and his wife and daughter;
Henry White, secretary of the United
Suites embassy; J. R. Carter, second sec
retary of the embassy; Archdeacon Sin-
clair; Louis Astor Chandler, and William
Fuieh, United States minister to Uruguay.
The menu, which was es;>ee tally designed
for the occasion, was ornamented With
American and British flags, and over the
•eat of the chairman was an enormous
eagle.
The list of toasts was long. The health
of Queen Victoria was proposed by the
chairman, who read a letter dated Wind
sor Castle from Sir Arthur John Biggs,
private secretary to her majesty, saying:
"The queen desires me to beg that the
American embassy will be so 3«»od as to
convey to the members of the American
Society tn London the expression of her
majesty's sincere thanks for iue beauti
fully illuminated address of congratulation
she received frcm that body. 1 have fur
ther to assure your excellency Uov deeply
tha queen was touched by the sentiments
of sympathy with the enthusiasm of her
own subjects on the 60th anniversary of
her accession to the throne. v nlc:i was
contained in this address from the citizens
! of the United States."
Mr. Hay responded to a toast as to his
health with a bright speech, He dwelt on
the origin of the day. He said:
"In that pathetic thank offering of our
forefathers, when they were kee;»i ig alight
the spttrk of freedom which was destined
to kindle into such a beacon blase, en
lightening and admonishing the world,
some of our peculiar institutions, thank
heaven, we have lost. The worst p«A»sed
away In the temper of the war it caused,
but this, unquestionably the most peculiar
of all, we can trust to abide with us for
ever. This in one of the few things that
we can do that offend* nobody, threatens
no one. and competes with no one. There
can never be too much gratitude in the
world. _ ,
"Seventy millions of voices praising God
together would not justify the addition of
one ironclad to any navy on earth. To
night we can hardly be said to be in a for
eign land. A French statesman s«>id the
otner day; "Where there Is one French
man, there is France.' So we uave SCO good
reason* here to believe we are in America
tonight, and may be pardoned for speak
ing of some little things that we care
about."
Mr. Hay then paid an eloquent tribute
to the "unknown, nameless artists, who in
the days of early New England, first
brought to perfection the pumpkin pie."
He indorsed Benjamin Franklin's sugges
tion that the turkey should be the na
tional emblem instead of the eagle, who.
with aristocratic protile. loud voice and
predatory disposition, hardly commends
himself as the emblem of modeist. indus
trious and conscientious democracy, while
the turkey, like a true altruist, exists only
for the good of others and perishes by
thousands yearly for the public welfare.
In conclusion. Mr. Hay enumerated the
causes for thankfulness, and said:
"We are thankful that we speak Eng
lish, or If our friends on this side of the
ocean think that is boasting, that we talk
United State* which anawers equally as
well for telling the truth."
Lord Strathcome and Mount Royal, of
Canada, responded to the toaat. "Our Next
Door Neighbors."
Hon. Sir John Garell Barnes, Justice of
tho high court of Justice, proposed the
i health of Ambassador Hay. dwelling upon
the great friendliness that he believes ex
ists between England and the United
| States, saying:
"if the two countries only will put their
forces together they can rule the destinies
of the world."
Mr. Hay, upon closing his reply to the
| tortst of his health, said:
"Tho great body of the people of the two
countries are fri- nds. We are the fortun
ate heirs to Enclish law and liberty, which
both naiions respect."
Celebrated at Berlin.

Robert H. CaHigan, who a few years ago
*as superintendent of the city water
works, is home from Sunrise City. Alas
ka. He is a member of the United States
Mercantile Company, which operates the
Stella Erland and does a mercantile busi
ness at Sunrise. Calligan is looked upon
as the pioneer of Sunrise. When be went
there in May, 18 K. there waa no Sunrise
City, only a cabin or two. He made it his
headquarters and announced that he waa
there to stay. Many miners and pros
pectors who had located further down the
river concluded that Sunrise was u> bo
the city of that part of the Cook Inlet
country, and in a very ehort time they
had changed their quarters.
Sunrl?e is cm Six-Mile creek, which is
on Turnagain arm, and is probably the
ideal mining camp of the great Alaskan
country. The town Las fine, good frame
houses and many splendid log cabins.
"We are a peaceable and happy people
up there." said Calllgaji to a Post-Intel
ligencer reporter yefterday afternoon.
"The miners have supreme control of the
city. Of course we follow the established
cwde in governing mining matters, but the
business of the town is in the hands of
three trustees, who carry out the wishes
of the miners. The Utter are peaceable
and honest and in all (natters are strict
and straight and just. You can't say that
of every mining city, but you can in
•peaking of Sunrise, and no one will come
forward to challenge the statement. We
Insist on improvements. A miner Is al
lowed a lot but to hold !t he must make
certain tmprovi ments within a specified
time. If he faile he loses it.
"There ha* been much said about the
future of the Cook Inlet country. Every
man has his own views. I have mine.
The men who are developing the country
are satisfied wi'h it. True. It Is not as rich
lis the Klondike, but then we have many
advaniagt-s that the Klondike does not
and never will possess. With very few
exceptions the miners In our country have
done well. They go to work along in
July and are not interfered with by the
elements until October. Sometimes they
have two and three weeks in October,
during which time they make as much
progress as in the summer time.
"Of course there is some chance In pla
cer mining. Tour claim may be a good
one. it may be a bad one; you cannot tell
anything about it until you get down to
bedrock. If your bedrock Is found to be
smooth, then you know better than words
can tell you that your work has been
fruitless. In such cases the men who have
claims below you are the Ones who reap
the harvest. Many miners who come into
the country buy claims on what is known
as a bedrock price. The purHiaaer is al
lowed so much a day for developing the
claim and he pays his purchase price ac
cording to the amount he takes out. A
man may work for some time making on
ly a bare living, while others near him are
cleaning up good money every day.
"I recall the case of H. F. Stratton. a
brother of Judge Btratton, of this city.
He and several others came along there
last summer and purchased a claim from
several men who had worked it the pre
vious summer. Anything but success had
accompanied their efforts. They had not
made a good living. Stratton and his men
took hold of the claim and marvelous was
the change that followed. I have been
told by men who know that Stratton and
his partners took out from WO to 1100 a day
each. The claim Is one of the best in
the country,
"Just before I left Sunrise I went to
make a call on A. L. Mills, of Seattle,
who with Erlckson and Heddy. two Seat
tle men. own a fine claim. Mills told me
to go out on the claim and gather a lit
tle gold. In a very short time I had a
small bottle filled wirh the precious stuff.
As Is well known. W. W. Price and H. C.
Pierce, of the Polly Mining Company, are
two Seattle men who are making money.
They have probably as fine a claim as
will be fnund in the <y>untry. Price was
at one time on the Seattle police force.
"We all have faith in the country. I do
not advise any man to go there, because
If I should and he failed to win out I
might come In for some criticism. But wo
sr* satisfied with our country. Andrew
Williamson, en old California and Mon
tana miner, who was In the Cook Inlet
country last summer, told me that In hie
Judgment not six claims in the entire
country have been developed. He said
that we did not appreciate the richness of
the country. Perhaps not, but we are
satis lied."

Sidney Grundy's three-act comedy, "Tt»e
T,a»e Mr. Castillo," was produced at the
Seattle theater last nigh? by a company
headed hy Mi*s Rachel Ford, a young wo
man who enjoy# a certain social distinc
tion on Pacific coast and who with e*-
may become a capable leading
woman, especially aa aha baa aspiration*
of that character and 5 s endowed with
much determination. This particular
qualification is •bn<~k' > d up by a. fine tiguro
and a f ice of much beauty.
"The Late Mr. Caate-llo" did not receive
the Interpretation at thf hands of this spe
cUUy organised company that might have
hoped when the author and the long
run ne piece enjoyed in New York, at the
l.yo um theater, are considered. There Is
much in the Hnes that emphatically
good Tr.d it demands reading of the rtn>?t
»h*d:ng and appreciation. This was not
accorded to the piece list nieht, although
the audience grasped the situations and
applauded the unique plat.
There was a fine crv wd present, the the
ater being completely and when the
cur'ain rose on the one-act farce, "A Pair
of Lunatics" which precedes the comedy
thfre was little ataodln* room left. "The
I-ate Mr. Castclio'' wUI oe repeated to-
