Capt. Austin's Daughter and a Kavnl Officer's "Wife Unptized. An unusual baptismal ceremony, -which was alike interesting and impressive, with Police Captain Alanville A. Austin as im merser, and Inspector Louis II. Hollin bcrger, chier of detectives, as preacher, was . solemnized Friday evening in the Clnis tadelphian Church, in Eighth street, be tween F and G streets northeast. The baptism had been set for today,- but as one of the converts to the Chribtadelphian. faith, had recelveda summons to leave town vesterdav for the "West, it was decided to immerse thethree candidatesatonce. 'i'hey -ivcrc Mrs. Rosa T. Phillips, Miss Emma 0. Austin, daughter of Capt. Austin, and Mrs. Caroline Butts, who left Washington a few hours af tar her baptism to Join her husband, a naval attache, a t Ios Angelas, Cal. The cosy little church was well-filled , with Chifstadelphliins and visitors when thethree ladies who were to become mem-' hereof the ChristadclphianChurchappeared on the platform ready for immersion. They were clad in loose black gowns, and after- being seated near the pool, the services were commenced by singing, in which the congregation joined with the choir. . After the singing Inspector Hollinberger delivered an impressive address on the subject of "Baptism," which was listened to attentively b three candidates and the congregation. Capt. Austin then made his' appearance, clad in a clo.'i -fitting suit of, rubber to immerse the ladies. The pool is al.out six feet in length and is four feet deep. The captain descended into the pool by means of small stairs. While tile congregation arose and sang thcClm.stndclphlan baptismal hymn Cnpt.( Austin dipped the ladles under the water one by one, In a manner similar to that) employed in the Baptist Church. The can didates were then received into the Chris ' tadclphian faith and pioi:ounced members, of the church by Inspector Jlollinburger. After ren ovingthc black baptismal gowns' the ladies appeared among the members, or the congregation i n their streetdress and were warmly greeted at an impromptu ie-' cept'on, during which they were the re cipients of many lieartj handshakes. An other hymn and the eeremonj wasover. In his address to the converts', Inspector Hollinberger said the attention or thinking1 minds is being attracted to the Christa-. delphian belief. "The creed of the Christadelphians," he1 added, "is the Bible which they believe to be divinely inspired, that Is, "holy men or old spake as they were moved by the Holy Spirit." The creation, trial, and fall of man is lecordcd in the second and th:rdchaptersof Genesis, which shows that the sentence imposed for transgression was death, "Dust thou art and unto dust shalt thou return,' this sentence consigned the first man to annihilation, and as the race was yet In his loins when the penalty; was imposed, his condemnation rell upon his posterity. " ' "The Tir.st promise of a deliverer was, made at the same time that the sentence of death was imposed, and that was, 'that the seed of the woman should bruise the serpent's head.' That seed they in com mon with all denominations of Christians believe to be Ulnist. "As Christ died, was buried, and rose again to redeem man from the dominion of death, it becomes necessary for man to symbolically pass through the death state by being buried in the waters of baptism. When the individual comes up' out or tho water his past offenses have been obliterated, and he has a clear record." Inspector Hollinberger will preach at the church, Eighth street, between F and G streets northeast, at 3;30 o'clock, this afternoon. GOIXG TO FIGHT FOlt CUHA. A Company of Volunteers lleing Or ganized in Tills City. Mr Harry Matchett, a member of Troop A, of the District National Guard, is organizing a company of volunteers to go to Cuba to assist the insurgents in their struggle for independence. Mr. Matchett is working under a commission from L. W Colby, of Nebraska, who is at the head of the American Volunteer Legion. He has, so far, twelve names on his enroll ment papers, but hopes, witnm the next thirty days, to have increased this number to one hundred Any able-bodied man, tietwccn the ages of eighteen and fifty years, is eligible for enlistment. The recruit is rcoulredto swear allegiance to the republic or Cuba and to support the constitution thereof, but there is a proviso that such action shall not lie In conflict with his right and duty as a citizen of the United States. The term of enlist ment is for four months. No salary Is stipulated, but it is understood that the insurgents have plenty of money and that the men receive the same pay as do soldiers in the regular army. They are also given their equipment, unirorm, and transportation. The men will not I cave Washington as an organized company, but will go the same as auy tourists, and will tie armed after they reach the field. Mr. Matchett, if he concludes to accompany the men, will be given a commission in tho Cuban army, ne has traveled extensively through the island and is peculiarly fitted for active field service. His headquarters are at No. 310 Tenth street northwest, where applications for enlistment may be had. UK AT..L.EGKS 13X.TRAYAGANCE. Kqnity Suit liegan Against a Life Insurance Company. John J. Shipmau filed a bill in equity yesterday against the Massachusetts Bene fit Life Association to restrain that or ganization from enforcing the payment of a certain assessment on two policies. The plaintiff alleges that he was insured for" $10,000 in the Security Mutual Benefit Society, in August, 1889. He was later transferred to the defendant company with an understanding that his assessments should not be iucreascd. At the time he went into the first company he was fifty five years old, but he iu now seventy-five. He claims that about the first of the present- month he received a notice from the company of an assessment payable February 1, naming the premium' due $57.03 on each policy, or $115.90 in all, which is, lie say., an increase of $71.85. This call, he states, is excessive and unjust, and Is not based upon his age, but is imposed for replacing of funds squan dered. 1.23 To Baltimore und He- $1.25 turn via Pennsylvania Hailrond.

For tho purpose or havJug tho school, removed to another location, Senator Lodc recently proposed an amendment to the Dlstrlecanproprintion ' bill- providing1 - thj sale of the "Force School, property,.", and the question as presented was submitted to the Commissioners!

The title to the. ground is in the United Stales and 'the CbiiuiiisslonCin have no' right to dispose 'of it except .Congress, shall authorize it, and the board is In doubt as to the authority to be conferred' by the proposed amendment The Commissioners submitted the ques tion to Attorney Job 'Barnard, who is a member of the board of .school trustees, and his report accompanies the letter of the. Commissioners to the Senate committee. Mr. Barnard believes the amendment should be more specific, and authorize some otie to "make the sale and convey ance of tile title at a price to be determined ,in.somoiv.aj-,p.iy.iovec thopurchase-money , to the Treasury, and then appropriate a sufficient Sum" U accomplish- theend'de-'' sired." He adds: "Doesthe proposed amcndinentmean that the United States now serves notice on the Commissioners, as tenants at sufferance, to quit the possession and use of said grbund, and remove the said school building, or does it mean that the Commissioners shall sell and convey the snid'lUts ami the'build ing they constituting together 'the Force School property' and with the money to be realized therefrom? buy ground and build elsewhere? "If the first of these propositions is correct,, titeu where is thd money to come from to buy and build with? The build ing that is now there and which Is worth $3G,Q00 to the .District for school pur poses, -would bring only a small sum, ir sold to be taken down and nsinovctl. 'It the second proposition i& the. correct one, then the amendment is vague and uncer tain." "If the proposed amendment should pre vail, -what would you be authorized to -sell, -nnd -who would' determine "the price you would be justified In receiving? If you are only to sell the building, -would you be, doing fairly-, by .the District to.tlispose of it for less than its value to the District for school purposes? If such'is the iif teiit.ntliuu there ought.to bo a condition, authorizing such sale, provided you can sell it for at least" $30,000'. The ground and,.building together ought, to .bring at least $100,000, as the ground is valued at $3 a square foot." - '. "I beg leave to suggest that the best localities in the city, with beautiful, safe, and sanitary surroundings,- pirreair,, pleas ant approaches, and wide streets, are not too good for tho location of our public school- houses, -flihe board or-truBtees.un their last report to you concerning the Washington public schools, state that they are '.object lessons for the school teachers of the nation, and-for this reason should be the best equipped, best taught, and'best .regulated and .supervised of any public schools anywhere.' 1 supplement this by saying, 'that' the school iiouses',siiauld be the best located of any of our public build ings, convenient toi our homes as may be practicable, and' made pleasant in ovory way for the occupancy of the children." Mr. Barnard can'sce no reason for dis turbing the Force Schoob because kIcbs valuable ground cau be had, nor docs ho consider the claim that the building mars the beauty of Massachusetts avenue as a sufficient reason for the. change. The Commissioners estimate that an eligible site and. a. suitable building, -to oe substituted for the Force School, would cost not lessthan $05,000, mid 'they sug"- gestthat in case the amendment is adopted there should be an appropriation of a sum sufficient to 'replace the-site and build ing, and that provision shall be made for a retention of the Force building until the substitute structure shall be provided.

PERRY CARSON TABOOED MurkllummSuys Andy Is All night, Hut Give the Hlnelt Colonel tho Cold Shoulder Hlaine's Hurial Four Years Ago Recalled "With a Little I'nthos... "I am in no way connected or asso ciated with the fortunes of Perry Carson. That much should be "understood once for all by my friends." These were the words or the Kenial Andy "bleeson when discussing the story in The Times the other day whichftold how Mr. Mark Hanna had said that neither Glecson nor Carson could expect any position in the girt of President-elect McKinley. "I am not now ami never bhall be an applicant for any position, Federal or otherwise. I have got quite enough to do to look after my contracting business," said Mr. Glecson. Mr. Gleeson seemed to resent the idea that Mr. Hanna would rail at him he caue he failed to vote for Mr. McKinley's nomination In the St. Louis convention, when it was known to every one that he was committed to the candidacy of Tom Keed. A friend or Gleeson's said this: "I know of my own personal knowledge that Mark Hanna has the highest personal regard for Andrew Gleeson. He said so at the St. Louis convention, and he has re iterated it since. It Is different with Terry Carson. When one of Hanna's lieutenants called on Gleeson and Carbon to ascer tain if they could not 'see new light' touching the candidacy of McKinley a ml went back and reported to the Boss that neither man could be moved Hanna ripped out a blankety oath and said: 'Gleeson is all right. He is sincere in his advce-icy or Reed, but as Tor that black Carson he Is never sincere In anything. If McKin ley Is elected Carson will be tabooed He won't even get a smell at the spoils trough.' " Anyone who knows Andrew Gleeson knows that he is a loyal friend. For twenty years he was In the conhdence of James G . Blaine. He spent his money and his time to advance the political aspira tions of the Plumed Knight. It was a case of genuine affection between the high strung statesman and the rugged and honest contractor. It was not an unusual tiling to see Blaine and Gleeson arm in arm, walking through one of the thor oughfares of the city. It has always been a boast of Gleeson's that he was the friend of three of the greatest statesmen in history Stephen A. Douglas, James G. Blaine and Tom Reed. As a citizen of Virginia he cast his first vote for Douglas, and voted in national conventions twice Tor Blaine and once for Reed. Just rour years ago yesterday James G. Blaine was buried. It was on that day that Gleeson observed to a rrlend: "I have lost my idol. My idol and my candidate ror President of the United States Trom this time on is Tom Reed." How Gleeson kent his word as regards Reed is history. Even today he is a Reed man. Only a rortnight ago he said, "I am enlisted ror the campaign of 1900. I will be with Tom Reed." There was never a time during the In cumbency of Mr. Blaine as Secretary of State that he "was i.ot accessible to Gleeson. One day itwasdiplomatic day atthcState Department Mr. Glecton called on Mr. Blaine. The Secretary was busy and his secretary said it would be impossible to see him. "Oh, he'll see me," said Andy. "Just tell him I am on the outside." The message was taken in and the answer came back to let him in. The British ambas sador, the French ambassador and other foreign nabobs were in the -waiting-room. Gleeson with his big sombrero 'hat in his hand strolled through the line of dip lomats and was soon in the presence of the Secretary. "Glad tosee you, Andy,""wasMr.Blalne's salutation to his old friend. "And 1 you, Mr. Secretary. I am more than glad. 1 am tickled to death to know that the Trisli minister takes precedence over the English minister." Mr. Blaine saw the keen Irish wit of his visitor and chuckled so that he could be heard in the corridors. BUIUED AT ARLINGTON. Funeral of Col. Thomas H. McPar land, of the Army. The remainsof Col.

The entertainment committee of the Young People's Society or Christian En deavor of the Fifth Congregational Church gave a "crazy tociaL'-Iast night-in their hall, corner of Eighth and I streets north cast. The invitations und programs were unique in design. , There w.ere about one hundred present and all had a good time. The program oppned by a chorus of twenty voices. This was followed by a recitntion, "How We Caught the Mouse," by O. W. Goodwin. , Kext was a quartet by Mis Elsie Parkinson, Mrs. O. W. Good win, Miss Clara Tucker, and Arthur Raab, each singing a different tune. Another chorus closed the program. Each number was announced after it-had been rendered by Arthur Raab, who officiated as master of ceremonies. A prize was offered for the most fan tastic costumes. The women voted Tor the men and the men for the women. Mr O. W. Goodwin, the new superintendent of the Sunday-school, took the gentleman's prize, nnd the lady's prize was awarded to Mrs. O. W. Goodwin, but as she had originated the idea of prizes, she refused to accept it, and it went to Miss Cole, who received the next highest vote. After the program refreshments were served. The success of the entertainment was due, in a large degree, to the efrorts of Miss Clara Parkinson, chairman or the social committee.

One of the crew acted as the Imam, or priest, and supervised all the arrangements and conducted the service. Being one of the crew, he was located in the forecastle, and it was there that most or the services or the religion were conducted. One of the customs is that as soon as they are satisfied that the mahls deatfjone of the number lifts the body up nnd shakes it vigorously. It is then disrobed and the Imam dashes hot water over it. This done, the body Is then robed in a garment in scribed with quotations from the Koran. In the meantime the imam recites prayers. Just before 3 o'clock the imam conducted the funeral service over the dead, no Euro peans being admitted to the forecastle while this was going on. Then t,he casket was brought and the body placed in it. There, was a hearse provided, and a tally ho for the mourners, and then the cortei;e moved up to a cemetery in Carrollton. where there arc a number of Mohamme dans already buried. The mourners were nearly all attired in the"fantastic East In dian costume, with turban, .and presented quite an odd sight. At the cemetery ttic'iriiain again recited come prayers from the Koran and then the casket was lowered into the earth, the imam directing the operation, so that the face of the dead man shuuld be looking toward Mecca. It is a custom of the Mo hammedans that each body should be bur ied under a cypress tree, or one should be planted near the grave, so that Its branches should cover the grave. mmnmmmg- 709 7th St. 3 Men's Suits.
