Cliurch.of this tity, thecereinniiy of accept

meeting of Washington Prcsbjtcry In the
W.irner Miiimrl.il Cliurth, Kensington.
1 reporter for The Times li.nl a tall; villi
Dr. Talmage last night at the Arlington.
In ojieniiig ll.e Interview he said:
'I wish first to I haul: tho editor of
The Times for l.ls kindness to rue. Your
paper has been enl to me and I lake this
opportunity or impressing lny obligation for
tho manner in vhh.li my coming heio has
licen treated. The whole pres.s has, in
fact, FiMikeli iff the change of my ministry
Jere in kind terms forwhlih ireelgraterul."
"1 have coiitluiltd," he s.ild, -to make
the Arlington my permanent pLitv of abndc-
and 1 liavo Just made arniiigemeiiu for
ooms on Sunnier Row, which commands
two of the hc.iiltirul streets.
"Of course. It is well known now that all
arrangements have been nrfetliil lu re
lation to the accentancc or the call. I can
only say now that I sh.iilconccntralcallmy
energies in the work before me. 1 shall
'retain nlitorl.il, control of the Christian
Herald, as the work will not Interfere
villi my duties to theihureli."
Dr. T.ilmagi; Mild that then- was no
truth in the reiiort that he would letture
regularly at Coinenlioii Hall, which was
one of the rejiorts lu circulati'jn prior to
his coming here.
"Well, 1 believe that Providence has
been the inspiration of the ihauge. I
confess that 1 have ulwajs had a de-sire
to lio here and when the npjioriuniiy
was so providentially olfered, I gladly
accepted. I hare come here excry jcar
for twenty years and the more I taw of
he ln-.iutiru! tity the more it pledged me
and now it is to be my home and that of
my family."
Dr. Talmage then withdrew to receive
officers and memliers of the First Fres
btcri.in C'hurihi who had called ou him.
Dr. Talmage is accompanied by his Iwo
daughters, who received quite a number
of callers in the evening.
The plans of llieinjiuent divine are that
he shall deliver one sermon ui Ilrooklyn.
one in New York and one in Pittsburg.
.Yew York and llmoklju sermons will be
farewells to his friends there.
The other matters of interest 111 relation
to Dr Talmage and the Washington Pres
bytery took place at the meeting of lh.it
body yelenlay morning at Kensington.
Rev A dolus 'Allen was moderator of the
Dr. Talmage occupied a quiet corner of
the Uiurch, and sat til the same ew with
CiII Service Commissioner Lyman. He
said but half a dozen words In llienuellng,
and thci' were ofn necessary nature. When
the offni.ll call to the new- nanor.ile hnil
been read by Dr. Biltlnger. the stated
clerk of the ni'-etlng. Dr. T.ilmnge said
simply, and in rather a low-, quiet voire.
"I accept the tall."
The next time Ire opened his .mouth it
was to ask that lie be eveusid. as he had
to catch a train then about due. Permis
sion was given him to withdraw. Dr.
Talmage maJe a favorable Impression
on the ministers with whom he was
thrown in lontact during the brief period
that lie was with them, and it was verv
evident that the tninMirs of this presby
tery are glad that they are to have so
great a fellow-worker, and have extended
to him the right hand of fellowship.
The programme ror the Installation of
Dr. Talmage was drawn up and approved
by the meeting. The ceremony or In
stallation, whlth will be of the most im
pressive nature, will take place at the
First Presbyterian Chinch on Wednesday,
October 1, at T':i0 p. m.
When tl.c presbytery had been formally
opened and prayers had been pronounced
Statnl Clerk Ilittiuger called the roll,

The mailer or ihe call of Rev. Dr. T.
De Witt Talmage, D. J)., to the pastorate
of the Tlrst Church, was then introduced
by the reading of the following Presby
terian dismission of a minisier-
Thls Is to certify that Hie Rev. T. De
Witt Tahnage, D. D., is a member in good
standing In this presbytery, mid, is now,
at his own reiniest, dismissed to unite
with the presbjtery ot Washington, to
whose fraternal nrriction mul fellowship
he Is hereby cordially recommended.
"The Rev. Dr. Talmage was oidalued by
the classes ot Bergen (lt.-formed Dutch
Church) In 1850." "Altest. .Vcwcll Wool-
sey Wells, stated clerk ot the presbjtcry of
Moderator Alln, Dr. Ta'.maee and Elder
Whyle were appointed a committee on In
stallation. Their report was that the ex
ercises of installation should take place
at the First Church on Wednesday, October
23. at T:H0 p. in. The programme of In
stallation adopted is as follows:
The moderator 6hall preside and put the
constitutional questions. Rev. Teunis 8.
Hani! in to have charge of the devotional
exercises, with Rev. 0. 11. Ramsdill, D. D.,
as alternate.
Tho eeruion ot installation will be
preached by Rev. David Gregg, D. D., of
Brooklyn, and the charge to the people
will lie made by Rev. B. r Biltlnger, D. D.,
with Rev. W. C. Alexander, I). I)., as alter
nate. Kev. Wallace Radclirfe, D. D will ren
der the charge to the pactor, with Kev.
Teunis S. Hamlin. D D., as alternate. The
prayer of installation will be rendered by
Rev. T. C. EnEton. U. I)., with Rev. O, O,
Luccock, D. Il.t as alternate.
A discussion of the correctness of the
phrase prayer of installation as used In
the foregoing report took up considerable
time. Dr. Hamlin made the point that
there was no such prayer known to the
church government as a prayer of instal
lation. In this he was sustained by Itev.
Dr. Allen and Dr. Hettinger. The phrase
was moillfled to "the closing prajcr."
Rev. Mr. Noarse thought that the nutter
of the call of Dr. Tahnage ought to be first
referred to a bpeclal committee, and that
it would then be time enough to consider It
after thai committee had reported.
He did not make very clear Ids reason
for desiring that a committee should be
appointed for the- consideration of this
call unless it was that in approving It
as It stood, the Presbytery was to a certain
extent Tendering itself liable for the pay
ment of Dr. Talmage's services
He thought that If the matter were

settled directly there would ngver arise
any Miggestioii of a coiiipi.ilni Ho put
It in the form of a motion that themalter
of the call of Dr. Tjlm.ige should be
rirst referred to a committee, but tho
motion found no second Dr. Biltlnger
thought that this n-rcrence was uttt-ily
unntcessnry nnd moved that the tall Ik
plared directly by the 1'rcHiylt-ry Into the
hands or Dr. Tahnage This motion was
put and carried without dissent.
Then the tall ronu of Dr Talmage
loomed up irom the obscure pew in which
he sm, he said, "I accept the call," nnd
moving toward the inodurnlor and Inking
from him Ihe document wlilcli he held lit
his cxttnded hand, tald, "I lli.-nk you"
With this Dr Talmage inclined his Isody
as with a Imiw, iind quickly receded lo
bis seat He straightened up, placed
the call In the left breast pocket of his
black Princ- Albert coat, and buttoned
that garment.
At this iiolnt Dr. Talmage arose and
asked that he lie exejsed from further at
tendance at tin- presbjtery. He then hai!
so few minutes to spare In which to catch
his train that he started down to the board
walk at n brisk run toward the railroad
nation, a third of a mile away.
Dr. Tahnage Is more of a prcni-her than
a sprluter, and when he readied the sta
tion Just In time to lmard the train for
Washington he was badly winded, but gate
Tlie Times a real strong grasp of ihe liand
as he mounted the platform. Then he
waed adieu.
After the departure of Dr. Talmage the
reading of the manual of government was
taken up and considered nt length. It
ras determined to hold the fall meeting of
the pre-bylery at one of our suburban
thurches. and that the spring meeting
should be held lu the illy.
It was also voted to pay a permanent
ilerk Slin per annum for taking tbi- min
utes, said ilerk to hold office for three
yea rs.
Revr Mr. Edwards, pastor of the church
at Vienna, Vn., resigned his pastorate
because he felt that a new pastor might
Infuse new life into that field, and because
the pastor who administers lo that church
should live at Vienna.
Rev. Thomas W. Moore, of Kensington
M. E. Church, was present, and was in
vited to sit as a lorresjionding member.
Rev. Dr. Rathbnrn reported on the organ
ization of the thiirch at Ikirlslon, Vn.,
and Dr. Little moved that a committee
be appointed to see al-jut dcaconn 'sses,
as proUdcd in the report.
John II. Sti'miril'i. Will Turns rjp
A caEe parallel in many instances lo tho
famous Holt will case came lo the atten
tion of the register ot wills yesterday In the
submission for probate of what is asserted
to be the last will of John II. Steward.
The pnper was dated May S, 1871,
a Utile more than a year after the Holt
will was written and its ireuseil seams
show the tatters of frequent refolding.
Everything is left lo the widow, Mary
Steward, by the terms of the will, and she
is also named as ccciutrix. The paper.
In .111 old ytllow envelope, was left
with the register by Jiinnet Colton, a sister
or Mrs steward. It is said.
Mr. Steward died on the 4th of last
month. Ills wifo died In 180.1. Assuming
that the deceased died intestate the heirs-at-law
applied for the appointment of an
administrator nnd the granting of letters
of administration.
Three admlnlEtrators were appointed.
They were Messrs. James Forsythe, Leon
ard II. Riewanl and Charles II. Hcsler.
The estate of Mr. Steward, all told, is
reckoned to lie worth about $20,000.
The administrators liegan by the collec
tion of monies, and had between SI, 500
and $2,000 in liank, when it was reiHirleil
that a will would lie offered. Luckily,
no expendltuns were made, so that affairs
are not in a badly complicated form.
The administrators have employed Mr.
Leon Tobrincr lo In estlgate tbe case.
Promotion in the G. A. It.
Chief or Staff William II. Dpohttle, of the
Department of the rotomac, G. A. R., was
yesterday promoted to be department in

Ceremony Wltnex-ed by Thousands.
of People ClmrclicK ltepre-seiited.
The cornerstone of Hie new Fifteenth
Street M. E. Churib, on Hie corner or
Fifteenth and R streets, was laid yes
terday afternoon.
The cercmoines were beautiful and im
pressive and witnessed by an Immense
number of Jiieitators. Besides the mem
liers of the congregation, a large numln-r
of representatives from all Ihe Methodist
and other iburchcs In the city, the members
of the Grand Lodge of F.AA.M.and the
Master Masons of nil the subordinate
lodges ot the District were present. The
members of the P. A. A. Jl. were in full
regalia nnd took a very Important part
in the ceremony.
The exercises preceding the laying of
Ihe corner stone look -place on n plat
form. tcniorarily laid on the first floor
of the building. Of thfs siuie every
avail.ible foot was occupied and the pave
ments nnd tbe Mreels adjacent were
"nwded. The ueonle began lo gather
about 3 o'clock, and when the exercises
opened, several thousand were on the
On the north side or the platform -was
raised a stage on which were seated
Bishop Hurst, Revs. Lntlier B. Wilson,
presiding elder of the District; W. AV.
Van Arsdnle, pastor of the new church;
A. niclosVl. or Union M. E. Church; E. S.
Todd, of Ilamllnu M. E. Church; Albert
Oaborn, register of the American Univer
sity; A. O. Brown, of Foundry Church; L.

Charles A. Btakeley, ot the rirst Baptist
Church; A. S3. Rudgers, of the Church of
Our Father; C. W. Baldwin, C II. Miliu
ger, and tho members of the Grand Lodge,
I. O. O. M., of the District.
Immediately in front of the singe were
the children, uumbering over 100, of the
Fifteenth Street Church Sunday-school,
who led in the congregational Ringing.
The organ was presided over by Mrs. F.
J. Metcalf.
The exercises were opened with congre
gational song, followed Will prajcr by
Presiding Elder Wilson. XeWt followed the
reading of psalm 122 by Rev. Dr. Hugh
Johnson, and the Jfew Testament lesson
by Rev. Dr. E. S. Todd.
Bishop Hurst was then introduced by
Presiding Elder Wilson. r
All ought to be thankful, jie said, for
the beautiful weather which tblcssed the
occasion. When he nwokedn .the morning
it was raining hard and with every evi
dence of continuing, but now there was
the sunshine. This orrfy goes to show, ho
said, what Wonderful changes may take
Jlace between the rising and setting of
the sun. Bishop Hurst briefly reviewed
the history of the first establishment of
the first church on that -spot twenty-one
years ago. It was In the beginning a branch
of Foundry Church, and received very
materlal help a ml muih encmiragcm-T.t
from Hamline Chinch Ittook twocliu--ches
to make it, hut it is a good one. At first
It had the scriptural name of Mount Zion,
but In years it outgrew that name nnd
became plain Fllleenth street JL E. Church.
Bishop Hurst referred to the imperative
need ot a church In that section of the
city. The church, he sold, is the center or
all humane Influence and opens up a new
fountain for good wherever established.
It Is the foundation for the spiritual In
struction of the young, without which life
Is very doubtful.
In closing he cougratulalcd Ihe pastor
and the congregation on Ihe success of
the worthy work thoy had undertaken,
'lid concluded by asking Uie divine bli.ising
upon all the churches in the-city.
Rev. John II. DashicU formerly pastor
of Ihe church, made- a isbort address, in
which he spoke flatteringly of the push
and progn-sslveness ot the congregation.
It would take a great deal of money, lie
said, to complete this beauUful building,
1 . 1 Washington and Jlonroo sts., Anacostio. A
but from what be knew or the members
or the church he was sure it would be
forthcoming at the right time.
Rev. L. F. Widerinau,otAl"Kendree, rjho
followed, thought enough had been already
tald for every one inu rested to feel the
importance of the task undertaken. He
knew that they sill realized their duty
and would do it. He said $10,000 had
already been snb-eribed. but $10,000 more
A-cre necess-ary lo complete the chunh.
Subscriptions were then asked for and
nearly s-200 were collected.
Presiding Elder Wil-on then announced
.hat everything was In readiness for the
laying of ihe corner stone, and the officiat
ing ministers, led bv itisimn n,irvf .....t
Ihe members of Ihe grand lodge, proci -.!ed
ni- iioriuensi; corner of the building,
where the stone was to belaid.
All being In readiness. Architect Joseph
". Johnson, on addressing Grand Jljstcr
D. G. DKon said:
"Worthy JIasten The necessary prepara
tions having been made for lajing Ihe
Toundatlou stone or this edifice, I present
you the square, level and plumb, those use
ful Implements of the craft bv which von
may be able to ascertain that the ma
terial, which is to constitute the chk-r
corner-stone or the future edifice, and
which jou are aliout to lay In Its proper
place. Is well formed, true nnd Irnsty."
The square was then applied to theblock
or stone by Deputy Grand Master George
W. Heard, Uielevel by Senior Grand Warden
Matthew Trimble nnd tho plumb by Junior
Uraiid Warden J. II. Small.
Thestone was then lowered by Contractor
Klmmcll,and a metallic box containing the
following articles were placed In it by
Grand Jlster Dixon.
Tiie articles were a copy of the Bible,
cop of the discipline, metal pUte upon
which is engraved the name of the builder.
