NEW BUILDING FOR
CHISTIAN UNION AS
CROSBY MEMORIAL?
' 'Aunt Fanny's Hymn,' ' Res
cue the Perishing," May Be
Exemplified In. Project j,
In his funeral address yesterday af
ternoon Dr. Brown mentioned the
deep inteVest of Aunt Fanny Crosby
in. the' work of rescuing those who
had gotten far from God- In days
agone she spent much time in the
missions in New York city talking to
"her boys." Many times since the
j opening of tne .Bridgeport tnrisuau
. Unipn five years ago has she been to
I the services with her word of hope
! and cheer. A great many times has
she assured Mr. Simpson superintend
ent of the Christian Union . that un
able to sleep in the wee hours of the
morning, she was remembering and
praying . for the work, and for the
men who were making such heroic
efforts to "come back to their own,"'
many of whom she kne'y personally.
' At 5:30 in he- afternoon a number
of interested men gathered in the
north 'sun parlor of the Hotel Strat
Seld and started a movement for the
Fanny Crosby: .Memorial Building,
which should be used by the Bridge
port: Christian Union as a soul saving
station on Bank street. It was moved
that a committee of five be appointed
by the chairman, George H. Edwards,
who should secure a. permanent corn-!
mittee of from 15 to 2 5 leaders of re
ligious and philanthropic iwork, which,
committee should have entire charge
of 'the Memorial Fund. ' ' . 1
; A meeting of the' Board of Direc-,
tors of : the Bridgeport Christian ; Un
ion is called tb meet, at. the Christian,
Union "at "5 this afternoon to accept
and indorse' the action taken yes
terriay at the Stratrield mAottng
' Kanny Crosby' loved Bridgeport, -and
desired the , very. testYthtngs : for her
home city. Tier relatives heartily
approve of this 'project, and Mrs.
Booth said, "I .know of - nothinjr. that
would give. Aunt .Fanny more pleasure.-than
such a memorial."
Of neeessity -such a memorial .can
not ,be a vlocal or; eyen.,a national af
fair, but must .be international in its
scope; , Her-' hymns have been trans
lated into -all the tongues of the earth,
and 'have brought: courage and inspir
ation .to .uncounted (multitudes.. The
desire . is that individuals,-, churches,
young people's societies and organi
zations,'withih thev . churches every
where shall have their part no matter
how small "it' maybe; in the-ralsing
of the- fund which .' will, honor this
great woman. ' ';'.' r ,.i ,
- It has ; been suggested that gifts
may' be made at once and that until
the treasurer of - the .' Fanny - Crosby
Memorial, Fund is named such contri
butions: be -sent to . Egbert . :5 Marsh,
treasurer of the Christian Union, Care
of the Bridgeport ' Land r& Title, Co.;
i who will furnish a' temporary' receipt
j which- later will , be replaced by the
ssemonai tuna reoeipi. .. .
All of those : who have thus far
been conferred withYabout the matter
agree that it. is a splendid, iden. Mr.
Sankey son of the. singing evangelist
Sankeyi' heartily -'indorsed the ; lro
ject, as did - one or two otoora of
Aunt Fanny'jS ld friends who attend
ed the service. ;.'.'"
A Vear -ago the' issue of "Human
Salvage"- contained proposed plans for
a new building, that would be espe
ciallv constructed - with ' the idea of
putting .men upon their feet, and
bringing : Jthem back to God. , From
thirtv to fifty small private rooms
would give , the men who have made
good in the dormitory the opportunity
of having, a clean, wholesome, suitable
place to live without going into some
of the - questionable boarding houses.
Two grades of dormitories would en
able the management to build up the
men as they came along for aid.. The
right kind of detention room would
make it possible to , take in the poor
tellow who was the worse for drink,
and give him medicine and ; food the
next'-inorning, insteiad -of sending him
to, the . police station. . Industrial fea
tures would 'also be incorporated,
which would : largely solve the prob
lem of hard financial times,' men could
be given work that would pay thern
and bring a profit to the Union. With
such abuilding the Work can be made
almost, if not wholly, self-sustaining.
Best of all, the old Gospel-which Fan-
ry . Crosby so dearly loved, might be
preached nightly - and out from the
doors . and -windows might go ' the
strains of "Rescue the' Perishing," and
others, of ' tbe beautiful hymns written
by her. - . ' ' ' .v
Without doubt the secular and re
ligious publications all over the world
will make this project known; and at
memorial services ' in thousands of
churches offerings will , be : taken . for
the "Fanny Crosby .Memorial Building.
Furthermore, Rescue Missions-all over
the world will desire to have a part in
the project. '"-' '' . .
One of the ' striking features of the
funeral services at the First M. E.
church yesterday, was: the reading of
a poem written irt memory of Fanny
Crosby by Eliza Edmunds- Hewitt, of
Philadelphia, on receipt of the news
of Miss . Crosby's demise.. She haa
penned many sacred songs, including
"Will There Be Any Stars in My
Crown?" - 'Her tribute to Miss Crosby
follows: '

JUPITER PLUVIUS
WITH LYRIC FIRST
tllGHTERS AS USUAL
Again the rain Tas a prominent
tout unwelcome - guest .with the first
nightera of the C alburn Stock com
pany and indeed but once in the past
two months haa this lachrymose old
visitor missed a Monday night. How
ever, the house was substantial and
its enthusiasm for the play abundant
which, in spite of conditions, . made
the performance of "The Only Son,"
an entirely successful one.
The play, a three act one, while
dramatic, is not too heavily so as a
spirit of optimism permeates its
deeper , parts. It deals with the only
son of -wealthy parents, who has
wasted his time and money in vicious
living and whose manliness is sudden
ly brought out by the revelation of
his mother's -moral fall, and 'by the
t-dst of a pure and earnest young
girl.
, We thought Miss Violet Barney a
few years too young in appearance
to be the, mother of such a grown
up son, but could find nothing but
praise - for her acting, especially in
the dramatic moment of the revela
tion of her" guilt and later in the
attentive mothering of her son who
has done iso much for her and has
made good at his work.
Of , course Lowell Sherman is the
son and as such his work is earnest
and praiTOWorthy. Miss Suzane
Jackson has a lighter but charming
part as Anne Lester,- the girl in the
case, wnich is particularly fitted to
her.' We were glad to see John
T. Dwyer .in so good a part as the
husband and father," to which he Cid
full justice. ' Bernard Thornton seems
ueiign(. fm -appearing . in. a very
different part each week, and in this
play he is Henry . Thompson, a man
from Denver ,of the -cowboy typ e. . It
only can be said that he is equally
good' in each part. r ' : Y '' -- " ,
: Other . members ; of the company
who give splendid support to the prin
cipals this week are Fred Roland,
who is again the English lord, . Miss
Emma DieWeale. who is-, Mrs. John
Lloyd-Roach, Miss '. Beverly - West,
