Little Sisters Secure Another
Pittsburg Girl.
Kellie Sullivan Will Renounce the
World for Holy Life.
How Noricea Are Subjected to Severe Trials
of Patience.
Another Pittsburg girl has decided to
enter the convent of the Little Sisters of the
Poor in France. Thia makes the third
young lady from this city to join this order
since it has been established.
The young lady in question is Miss Nellie
P. Sullivan, oJ 2o. 312 Boss street She is
a daughter of the late J. E. Sullivan, a
former -well-known iron dealer, who died
three years ago. She is engaged at present
as stenographer and typewriter in the office
of W. D. "Wood & Co., on Water street
She will be 19 years old on Thursday, and
has chosen her birthday to begin a religious
lire. She will enter the house ot the Little
Sisters on Penn avenue, East End, and
there receive her preliminary instructions.
Miss Sullivan is tall, slender and quite
good looting. She is thoroughly educated
and proficient in music She has a sister
who is also quite a musician, and there are
few homes in the city made as pleasant as
the one she is leaving. She was educated
in the best Catholic schools, but is of an in
dependent nature, and for the past year or
more has been earning her own living.
She is an expert stenographer and type
writer, and received a good salary. On
this account many people wonder at her
leaving a pleasant home for the hard life
led by the Little Sisters. Some of her
friends tried to talk her out of her purpose,
but she was determined to lead a holy life.
For a number ot years she has expressed
a desire to be a nun. She was a member of
the Young Ladies Sodality at St Paul's
Cathedral, and js well known about the
church. She had no preference at first, and
carefully studied each order. Sbe spent
considerable time personally investigating
the different enclosed orders in this city and
Allegheny, and finally chose the Little
Sisters. This is the hardest one of the lot
Miss Sullivan will probably remain at
the Eat Liberty house about four or five
mouths. "While there her habits and man
ners will be carefully watched by the nuns.
This is the hardest part of a novice's life.
They are tried and humiliated in every pos
sible way. They are assigned to do numer
ous things which would try he patience of
a saint. If they demur or show in any man
ner that they are displeased with anything
they are ask'ed to do, they will not be re
ceived at the mother house. Their patience
is tried by being ordered to scrub a floor
until it is as white as marble.
Then an older nun comes along and acci
dentally spills a bucket of soap or grease on
the floor The novice then has to perform
her labor all over again. Another way was
to order them to carry a bucket of coal np
five or six flights of stairs and then tell them
it was not wanted and to carry it down
If Miss Sullivan successfully passes the
forms she will be sent to Latour, France,
where the mother honse of the order is lo
cated. There she will be "received." This
ceremony is about the same as in the Mercy
order in this city. The young novice will
be given the white veil and will be assigned
to work in the house. The latter is in a
small town near Paris and close by the sea.
The house is surrounded by acres of
farming land, kept by the Sisters. The
house accommodates nearly 1,000 people
and is filled with novices from all parts of
the world. After remaining in the home
for about two and a half years and if she is
still determined to enter the order, she is
professed. The profession consists of taking
the final vows of faith and obedience. The
ceremonies are abont the same as those in
other enclosed orders. After being pro
fessed the young nun is assigned to duty
somewhere thousands of miles from home.
It is customary to keep them away from
home so as to prohibit any outside interfer
ence or influences over them in their hum
ble position.
The object of the order is to care for and
sunnort helpless old and infirm persons.
This is done by soliciting alms by the sis
ters. In Paris and Brussels the Sisters go
from hotel to restaurant, wheeling barrows
and begging food for the persons under their
charge. In the latter city they drive large
Newfoundland dogs hitched to a small cart,
which the dogs have been trained to haul
about. They have small tin boxes strapped
around their necks for the reception of
money given them.
In this city the Sisters go from door to
door soliciting money or food. They have
a wagon, to which is hitched an old horse
who has been in the service for years. All
ot the money is spent to maintain the old
folks in the institution. They are taken in
regardless of creed or sect, and kept until
they die when they are given a decent
burial. The Sisters do all the work about
the institution, in addition to feeding, dress
ing andjearing for their charges. The order
has houses established in every large city in
the world. They have also erected homes
in India and Asia.
The last young lady to join the Little
Sisters from this city was Miss Jennie Hop
per, of Center avenue, sister of Hopper
Bros., the furniture dealers. She was pro
fessed on June 22, and is now known as Sis
ter Angelina. She was sent to Macy, in the
northern part of France, where she is now
located. Miss Mamie Howe, of the South
sid", preceded Miss Hopper. The latter was
a well-known young society belle, and sur
prised her friends by a sudden determina
tion to join the Little Sisters.
One of the rules of the order is that every
personal possession of a novice must be
turned over to the community when she en
ters. Even the smallest trifle of wearing
anparel or jewelry must be taken along and
turned over to the mother of the bouse.

Tributes of Respect.
The funeral of the late William Bow

"Washington street, yesterday afternoon.
The deceased was a member of numerous
isecret and social organizations, and his
lluneraliwis.very large.
Mr. Reynolds Explains How Chnrchea Were
Led to Adopt the Same Lessons The In
ternational Medina.
William Eeynolds, a leading officer of the
International Sabbath School Association,
addressed a large audience of workers in the
North avenue M. E. Church, Allegheny,
yesterday. He is a millionaire and a great
philanthropist He is a very genial, so-,
ciable gentleman to meet, and inspires all
those connected with Sunday schools to
greater and more determined effort in behalf
of their work. His visitto Pittsburg is to in
vestigate the possibility and the feasibility of
holding the international convention in
this city next June. The convention will
call together over 1,000 delegates from the
United States and Canada, besides repre
sentatives from England, France and Ger
many, Avho will attend to compare notes and
gain new ideas regarding Sunday school
work. In an interview with Mr. Reynolds
yesterday he said:
"The plan of international study of the
Bible in our Sunday schools was proposed
to the international convention in Indianap
olis by B. F. Jacobs, of Chicago, in 1872.
His proposal met with great opposition,
Bishop Vincent being one of the most de
cided in saying it would be an impossibility
to get the churche's of all denominations to
join in the uniform study of the Bible.
Mr. Jacobs, however, made a speech
that carried conviction to his hearers, and
the adoption of his proposal made America
peer of the world in Sunday school work.
Shortly after Canada joined, and England
now in her afternoon Sabbath schools uses
the same lessons taught in America.
"The association meets once in three
years and elects officers. The committee of
which Bishop Vincent is chairman, who do
the blocking out of the Sabbath school les
sons, are elected for six years. They meet
once a year and prepare a course of lessons
for the ensuing year, and by the uniform
use ot these lessons superintendents and
teachers in Sunday schools are enabled to
read the opinions of all the leading divines
on the lessons before teaching them, as every
religious paper in the land makes a special
point of discussing the texts in advance."
Controllor Morrow presided at the meet
ing in the church. In his address, Mr.
Eeynolds said that the Sunday school is a
great evangelizing power, and he told how
they can easily be started in city and coun
try. He stated there are 11,000,000 children
in the world who do not attend Sunday
school, and they will become a destructive
element unless watched. About 83 per
cent of the membership of churches come
from the Sabbath school.
A letter was read from B. F. Jacobs,
President of the International Association,
recommending that the association meet in
Pittsburg next June.
Mr. Eeynolds addressed another large
meeting last night in the Second IT. P.
Church on the needs and ways and means
of Sabbath school work. He said it was
the cheapest police system to educate the
children and this could be done in the
Sunday school. What is needed is teachers
and workers. To-day there are 120,000
schools in the United States with 1,300,000
teachers and 10,000,000 children.
An Effort to be Made to Get Stella Weir Oat
of a Columbus Home Alderman Hart
man and a Priest Slay be Sued.
W. L. Bird, Esq., is arranging the pre
liminaries for several suits which it is con
ditionally concluded to enter against Al
derman Hartman, of the Twenty-seventh
ward, Father Bernard, pastor of St Mich
ael's Roman Catholic Church, South Fif
teenth street, and possibly other persons.
The substance of the complaint is that they
participated in the forcible removal of Stella
Weir to the Catholic Home of the Little
Sisters of the Good Shepherd, at Columbus.
The prosecution may include Mrs. Lizzie
Weir, the girl's mother.
It is charged that Miss Weir was arrested
at her mother's instance, and taken before
Alderman Hartman on a warrant accusing
her of incorrigibility, and, after four hear
ings, transported to Columbus at the advice
of Father Bernard. The only incorrigibil
ity for which the girl was thus treated was,
according to Mr. Bird's side of the case, her
refusal to dismiss Mr. Sam Ensell, of
Washington avenje, Allentown, who has
for a considerable period been mnch in her
Mr. Bird states that he was requested to
look up the case by a committee from the
American Mechanics, and he is considering
ths advisability of entering civil suit. He
claims Alderman Hartman had no right to
send the girl to the Columbus school, as her
character is most excellent
Alderman Hartman said that be had a
right to send Stella to Morganza, but out of
mercy he refrained, and the girl's mother
consigned her to the Columbus Home. Mr.
Ensell is determined to get Stella out, so he
says, but he has not laid the matter before
the American Mechanics.

District Assembly flo. 3 is Increasing
in Membership Every Day.
Local Reports Will Show About 2,500 Men
in Good Standing.
Secretary-Treasurer Miss Laura Powell
on Saturday sent out notices for the regular
quarterly convention of District Assembly
No. 3, Knights of Labor, to be held at Labor
Hall next week. The meeting will be called
to order Wednesday morning, October 16,
by Master Workman Boss, and will con
tinue in session three days.
Master Workman Boss stated yesterday
that the resports from the local assemblies
would show a large increase in the member
ship of the district since the last meeting in
July. The convention will be entitled to
between 65 and 70 delegates. One delegate
is allowed each local assembly. When
there are more than 100 members in the as
sembly it is entitled to two delegates, and
one for a fraction of a majority of 100. A
local having 151 members would be allowed
three delegates.
It is estimated that there will be about
2,500 Knights in the district when the con
vention is called to order. Nearly every
local assembly is initiating new members at
every meeting. L. A. 2126, Penn avenue
traction employes, has almost doubled within
the past ten weeks. The theatrical em
ployes, L. A. 1064, met yesterday and took
in about half a dozen. Slaters' Assembly
491 at its last meeting took in about a dozen,
some of whom had been members of the
Marble and Slateworkers' and Tileiayers'
Union, which is attached to the Federation
of Labor. Other assemblies receiving new
members almost every meeting are Sales
men's 4907, Teamsters' 1577 and 834 mixed.
In speaking of the change taking placein
the order, Master Workman Boss said,
"We have now turned the corner" and
despite the reports that the Knights of
Labor is going to pieces we are growing
stronger each week. There is scarcely a
meeting of a local assembly that new mem
bers are not initiated. At the last meeting
of the slaters, I had to turn my office over to
the crowd of men who were waiting to be
initiated. The growth of the order is steady
and there is no boom about it. At the last
quarterly meeting we had to throw over
a lot of dead timber. These re
tarded the work of building up the
organization to what it was three years ago.
We are now rid of them, and the increased
membership is the result. The kind of men
we are getting in now are not enthusiasts.
Some of them are former members of the
order who dropped out on account of a lack of
interest They now find that itis a good
thing to maintain their organizations even
if they have received all they want
"A great many men dropped out of the
order when they obtained what they wanted.
"The most striking instance of this kind,
is the street car men. They organized them
selves in good shape, and then Joy reason of
being organized they got their hours of
work reduced from 15 and 16 to 12 per day.
After they got their wishes they thought
there was no more need of an organization,
and many of them dropped out by non
payment of dues. These men are now com
ing baok again."
At the last quarterly meeting ten local
assemblies were dropped for non-payment of
dues. At the coming meeting one local
will be expelled. This is the Tinners'
assembly, which has lapsed. At the meet
ing Master Workman Boss, who is the
Pittsburg delegate to the General Assembly
next month, will be instructed in regard to
the business to come before that body. In
the fight between L. A. 1583, musicians, and
the M. M. P. TJ he will will request that
the former be allowed to retain their char
ter, if the General Executive Board does
not settle the matter in the meantime.
L. A. 1SC2 Will Continue the Boycott
Attains! HI. C. Dolan.
The negotiations between M. C. Dolan,
the Southside cooler, and L. A. 1862 have
been declared off. The latter will now push
the fight against Dolan's goods until he
signs their scale. While conferring with
Master Workman Boss, he stated that he
could buy his material cheaper than he
could last year, and was getting the same
price for his barrels as other manufactur
ers. The boycott committee succeeded in
inducing a number of glass manufacturers
not to buy any more barrels from the shop
until Dolan became a union man.
They Will Present Their Scale to tbe Em
ployers To-Morrovr,
The committee of molders appointed to
formulate a wage scale, asking for an ad
vance of 10 per cent in wages, which was
appointed at the general meeting Saturday
evening, will meet to-night.
The scale will be drawn up and presented
to the employers to-morrow. The new scale
will take effect next Monday, and if it is
not signed a general strike will result.
Another meeting for molders only will be
held Saturday night
Director George I. Whitney Says Rapid
Transit by November 1.
The CentralTraction Company is working
very vigorously to get into operation by
November first The delay has principally
been due to the slowness with which the
power house has been forced to contend.
The trusses for the roof were jiut into posi
tion Saturday, however, and it is expected
that a few days will see the roof com
pleted. Director George L Whitney said yester
day: "We have had our patience tried very
severely by the delays that have retarded
progress far beyond the original time fixed
for a commencement of operations. Tho
power house is nearly ready for the recep
tion of the massive machinery, and the lat
ter is now upon the road and will arrive
within ten days. The cables, have been
ordered, also, and will be ready when
wanted. As for the roadway only a few
isolated spots remain incomplete, and two
weeks' work will finish all that remains to
be done. The cars are completed and will
be shipped within a few days, and I do not
think that it will be mnch beyond Novem
ber first before rapid transit up the 'Hill'
will be an assured fact"
When Two Women Diet They Fell on Each
Other nnd Polled Hair.
A fight took place last night between Mrs.
Hanney and Mrs. Hadow in an alley at the

Detectives Eichenlaub and McClnre found
the women rolling over and over on the
floor and snatching out big handfulsof hair.
The women were arrested, bnt their friends
put up bail for them. The meeting had been
intended to effect a reconciliation between
the pair, after a 15-years' estrangement

Great Crowds of Hnlffbts Pass Through
Pittsburg A Biff Harvest for Hotels and
Union depot, its corps of employes in
cluded, was enlivened to a considerable
extent yesterday as the long lines of specials
pulled in and disembarked their loads of
gaily costumed Knights .Templar and their
Iadyea fayre' for a brief interval of refresh
ment on their way to the annual celebra
tions at Washington.
From an early hour in the morning until
late at night the bright facings of the uni
forms of the Sir Knights, intermingling with
the many-colored wraps and extemporized
head coverings of the "dames" and "damo
sels " lighted up the platform and ap
proaches of the old depot in a manner that
was good to see. Stirring music from the
bands that accompanied each delegation
spoke out in pleasing phrase of the antici
pated pleasure of tbe gathering and sent the
merry echoes rebounding nlong tho vault
overhead until they reached the old-time
employe, whohaslived past surprises, causing
him to don his glasses and inquire into the
unusual innovation on his unwearying
Each train load as it formed up In line,
of more or less accuracy, was ushered either
into the restaurant or along Smithfield street
to Caterer Hogan's and the Duquesne; just
as the exigencies of the moment permitted,
and at each place an excellent meal was
straight away placed before the 'voyageurs.'
At times two sections of the specials would
haul in together, and while one party would
more than occupy the depot restaurant the
others were promptly taken up to the places
The earlier delegations that came forward
over the Fort Wayne road weTe from
Indiana and Iowa, followed at a later stage
by contingents from various sections ot
Illinois and Ohio, the Chicago Commandery
being especially strong in numbers. During
the day more than 18 trains of six'coaches
each passed through over the Fort
Wavne road, supplemented by eight
others over the Panhandle and sev
eral special coaches attached to the
ordinary trains. Altogether, some
4,000 people must have been accommodated
at the hotels and restaurants, in addition to
the number who had meals on the cars, pro
vided by individual parties. One feature of
the day was the excellent playing of the
band of 52 pieces, Second Begiment, Chi
cago, and the capital rendering by a quartet
of the musicians of "Tom, Tom, the Piper's
Son;" and a word must be said for the fin
ished playing of the band of the Thirteenth
Volunteer Militia, of Hamilton.
After the confinement in the cars the dig
nified and uniformed Sir Knights were glad
of an opportunity of stretching their limbs,
and many were the antics indulgedin. One
company of about 60 single chevaliers were
formed in fours and put through a drill
that caused much merriment One half the
company was faced toward the other half,
and the order given to march. One pace
in advance brought them in close proximity,
and the scrimmage that followed was pro
ductive of mnch fan. Every party had a
man or more who were inexpressible. One
had an Indian war club, with which ho
proceeded to look for "John," but "John"
was always out of the way. And so, out
for a holiday, and bent on making the best
of it, the K's T. passed the time "shooting
folly as it flies," and making the most of
the fleeting moments.
The Pittsburg and Allegheny com
manderies will start for Washington over
the Baltimore and Ohio this morning.
Strangled to Death With a Cord and
Thrown Into tbe River-Nicely Dressed
In Fluo Linen.
While a man named S. Cochran was out
in a boat on the Ohio river, off the lower
nart of Allegheny, shortly after noon yes
terday, he saw a bundle floating in the
water. He lifted it out, The bundle wis
wrapped with a dark cloth and bound
around with a small rope like a clothesline.
Cochran opened his pocketknife, cut the
rope and carefully removed the wrappings,
which he threw back into the water. He
was horrified when he saw a pretty baby
clad in fine raiment He landed .and car
ried the dead infant to the livery stable of
Taggart 8s Fairman, at No. 234 Beaver
Word was sent to Coroner McDowell,
who went to Allegheny and carefully
examined the child. He said last evening:
"The infant was undoubtedly strangled to
death. Aronnd its neck was tightly
wrapped three times a stout linen strip
about an inch wide. This was tied at the
back of the neck in a hard knot The
baby's tongue protrnded half an inch from
its mouth. The work had evidently been
done with horrible deliberation.
"The child was about 5 weeks old. It is
a pretty girl, with a round, plump face and
finely developed body and limbs. The hair
on the head is plentiful and dark. The
body had not been in the water any longer
than since yesterday.
"The infant came from the hands of some
well-to-do person. It was dressed throughout
in fine white linen. It wore a linen shirt,
and its long linen dress was bordered at the
wrists and at the bottom of the skirt with
lace over an inch wide. It did not come
from any of the poor people who live in side
streets or alleys. On all the clothing there
was not an initial or a mark to give a clew.
I am sorry that I have not been able to see
the outer cloth in which the baby was
wrapped. Jt might be of value it it could
be recovered. I shall hold an inqnest to
morrow, but it does not seem likely that I
will discover the perpetrator of this mur

A Sad Sample of tbe Life to be Seen
Among the-Pvoor.at the Point,
Left Hungry and Almost Naked hy Their
Bibulous Parents.
Early yesterday afternoon Mrs. , Jane
Bobinson, a poorly dressed, middle-aged
resident of tho Point, walked into the Cen
tral police station with a baby in her arms.
The infant was but 4 weeks old. It was
wrapped in a thin, little shawl. Its bare feet
were exposed and blue with the cold. Its
face was pinched and dirty, and its wailings
pierced the hearts of the blue-coated officers.
Mrs. Kobinson's steps were not too steady,
Inspector McAleese observed, but she told
him a coherent story.
She said that her niece, Mrs. Essie Dom
ing, was the mother of the baby. "She
gets drunk," she said, "and so does Will
iam, her husband. She neglects the
children terribly. This day she came into
my house, threw the baby here on the table,
and said she was going to get drunk, and
she's drunk now at borne. I want a police
man to go down and get her, and Billy, too,
but I take care of the child."
t-The Inspector did not consider Mrs. Bob
inson the best person in the world to care
for the infant, as she had carried it all the
way from the Point with its bare feet ex
posed to the chilling air. In spite of her
protests, which were vigorous, he took the
child away and placed it in the care of
Matron Brennan. That good lady washed
the little one, and made it as comfortable as
possible by the warm fire. Bnt it cried dur
ing the better part of tho evening, and its
voice was stilled only when it sank into an
exhausted sleep.
Officer Patrick Farrell was sent to No. 7
Port street, the domicile of the Dorning's,
to look for the father and mother. He
found the woman, and with her a little girl
of only IB mouths. The mother was
maudlin drunk, and as happy in her intoxi
cation as an oyster at high tide. Tie child
wore only one old ragged garment, and her
face was so dirty that Mr. Farrell could not
certainly have said whether she were white
or black. Mother and child were conveyed
tn the station house, where the mother was
laid in a cell and the little girl given to
the tender eare of Mrs. Brennan. When
the child's face was washed the officers were
surprised to see what a pretty and bright
little thing she was.
Officer Farrell returned to the Point to
discover the wayward William. Searching
around in the rear of No. 7 Fort street, he
heard loud noises coming from the shanty
occupied by Mrs. Griffin, on what is called
Cavey court Thinking he might find
Doming there, he walked in, and found
himself in a speak-easy. Besides Mrs.
Griffin, eight or ten men were there, drink
ing and roistering. On the entrance of the
handsome officer there was confusion.
Men darted through all possible doors and
np stairways, but William Doming did not
get away. He was too drunk, and Mr. Far
rell took him to the Central.
It was learned that there is a third child,
a boy 3 years old, who is rnnning around
the streets somewhere in his bare feet
Father and mother were charged with

given into his charge to-day, and he says
that he will endeavor strennously to find

the little boy. He will prefer against the
parents charges of cruelty and neglect of
their children.
Rev. C. E. Locke's Ablo Discourse on the
Problem of the Fntnre.
Bev. C. E. Locke, pastor of the Smith-
field Street M. E. Church, preached an in
structive sermon last evening upon the sub
iect: "Are we near the end of the world?"
His text was Matthew xxiv., 36: "But of
that day and honr no man knoweih." His
introductory wat as follows:
"Like that flower of incomparable beauty
which only bursts its petals and diffuses its
fragrance in the late eventide, so there are
some lives which only reach their consum
mation amid darkness and shadows. This
is thrillinglv and touchmgly illustrated in
the life of Jesus Christ."
The speaker drew a historical sketch of
the early belief that the Messiah would
come to reign over a temporal kingdom,
and brought out the fact that the Book of
Bevelations was written 60 years after the
death of Christ, to correct erroneous sup
positions. Coming to modern times he
traced the history of the Millerites, who
snrang into life in 1843. and who have since
then been waiting with exemplary patience
for the end of the world. He then attacked
the doctrine of the millenium, claiming
that it depressed missionary work and deteri
orated morals. The famous "Dart? Day"
of New England, May 14, 1780, and the
"day the tars fell," November 20, 1833,
were also described. Bev. Mr. Locke laid
down the belief that no mathematical com
putation or trnstworthy prognostication
could be adduced to prove a fixed date
for the millennium. What the speaker con
sidered irrefutable evidence that the world
was not ready for the transition implied in
the day of judgment was that the undevel
oped resources and indistinct forces of the
world were practically unrevealed, and
were yet to be -utilized. Within a quarter
of a century natural gas and electricity had
arisen as new forces, and the electrical
era may be 10,000 years being developed.
The inevitable dednction was that .the pur
pose of these almost daily discoveries was to
elevate the world to the standard of Christ's
kingdom. Science and truth were hand in
hand in the task of metamorphosing the
world in order to conduce to the betterment
of humanity.
The lesson drawn was that although the
end of the world might be long delayed, the
end of individual life was a reasonably
fixed fact, and that it behooved individuals
to do good unceasingly in order to make the
world better by their existence.

Bev. Gideon E. Chase Goes Deeply Into the.
Religious Future Draft on a Powerful
Ber. Gideon E. Chase" Is staying with
friends on the,Southside ilr, Chase hails
from TJsselby.'Lincolhshire; England. He
claims to have conceived an idea by which
all the creeds and religions of the world can
be fused into one church.
His religion is as yet in embryo, bnt he
expects to give it to the world in about two
years. Mr. Chase delares that a fusing of
the more harmonious doctrines of all men
who worship a Supreme deity, from Catho
lics to Mahommedans, is not bnly possible,
but highly practicable. If the best points
be taken from every church, and a great
commonwealth of religion be created, with
an elected ruler, or Pope, at its head, the
world will at, least be void of creed, war
and sectarian bigolry, says he. The idea is.
in fact, a sort of federation of creeds; and
Mr. Chase says his church isjnodeled upon
the political system o? the United States.
Each religion will be as the States in the
Union. Every ne religion springing np
must remain as a "territory," till a suf
ficient following elevates it to a high posi
tion, like that of a State. Christ made St
Peter and his successors heads of His
church, but He did not say that only
Catholic Cardinals were to elect them.
Why should not every man have a vote In
the election of a universal Pope?
"But," it was objected, "would it not be
impossible to fuse even in the partial manner
mentioned such antagonistic creed as, say
those of the Catholics and Presbyterians?"
Mr. Chase said: "Let me give yon a case
in point where antagonistic creeds were
happily fused. The patriarchs and priests
wished to become followers of the Church of
Borne, but could not accept the doctrine of
celibacy. To compromise the Pope of the
day permitted them to marry under certain
restrictions, as to time and place. To this
day the Asia Minor Catholic priests are
allowed to marry, while all'otber priests of
the church are forbidden."
Mr. Chase went on to state that he has
come to America to study Mormonism, with
a view to bringing that belief into line. He
added that when he has completed the
groundwork of his big plan he will submit
it to the world for amendment or adoption.
Some Extra Touches Bclns Fat on the Car
nesloProo Library.
Chairman J. B. Scott, of the Carnegie
Free Library Commission, states that the
workmen now engaged in putting the finish
ing tonches upon the building are very
mnch annoyed and retarded by the stream

the public to patiently await the completion
of the building when the opportunities for
inspection will be nfnch superior to the
present time.
The original plans have been virtually
completed and nothing now remains but the
beantifying tonches considered necessary in
the adequate decoration of the building,
which are all extra but nevertheless will
prove of great value. If it were not for
these extras, Mr. Scott states that the build
ing conld be opened inside of a fortnight

The KeHcioaa Part of tbe Sr. PhHomeaa
Goldea Jnbllee Ended A Series of
Masses and a Banquet.
The'iWice8f al St. Philomenaf Church,
yesterday concluded the religious part of
the golden jubilee and of the foundlngof
the order of the Bedemptorists in this conn
try. From 5'A.TL one mass. quickly fol
lowed another up to 10 A. m.; when a pe-'
tifical high mass was sung.
At 9ai3 A. M. a procession was formed at
the St Charles rooms onPenn avenue, com
posed of 65 boys and 65 girls. She boys
were dressed alike in black trousers, white
waists; a golden band was looped from the
right shoulder and fastened under the arm.
The girls were arrayed In white costume,'
carrying choice bouquets of flowers, and their
heads were crowned with a wreath of roses.
Each child carried a small silk banner, with
1839 and 1889 inscribed upon it The pro
cession marched up Penn avenue, along
Fifteenth street, and down Liberty street,
halting at the clergy honse, 'Where they
were joined by the altar "boys, priests and
Bishop. ,The procession then moved down
to the main entrance of the church, on Lib
erty street As soon .as , the first of this
beautiful throng entered the church the
orchestra, made up of 30 of the best musi
cians of the, eityj played Meyerbeer's pro
cessional march. Thechildren toot posi
tions on either side of the middle aisle. The
clergy and Bishop proceeded to. the altar
hetween this colnmn. After tho Bishop re
cited a few prayers before the altar, he.was
conducted to his throne and robed in the
glittering Vestments appertaining to his
high office. While he was robing the band
played "An Evening on the Alps."
Whenr the 3ishop stood before , the
altar with his assistants, in elaborately
worked garments, a gorgeous spectacle was
seen, une aitar was aoiaze witn iignts.
From golden censors clonds of in
cense ascended, which filled the vast
church with its fragrance. The tabernacle
with its cold plate studded with jewels,
shoned brilliantly.
The mass was begun by the Bishop's
chanting tbe first words of the "Kyrie
Eleison," which was immediately followed
by the orchestra and choir of 60 filling the
auditorium with the strains of Hay den's
coronation mass. The execntion of, this most
difficult mass, under the direction of Prof.
J. S. Vogel, was a credit to the church and
the city. Each, number was rendered in
its entirety.
During the celebration of the mass the
band played the "Shepherd Boy," and Miss
Vogel sang "Begina Terra" and the "Venf,
Sanctus Spiritus," by Frey. The sermon
was preached by the Bey. Father Keitz,
who took for his text: "As the Father
sends Me, so send I you." The reverend
gentleman said: . "This church is ths
parental home of all German-Catholic con
gregations in America, She has sent ont
into other communities people who have
grown vigorous and have erected churches
to worship in the same ancient faith.
From the little factory which this order
bought 0 years ago on this ground, these
great results have been accomplished.
Every part of this land where this order has
a home sends its greeting to its mother.
After the conclusion of themassabanquet
was served in the hall of the church. The
tables were laid in horseshoe fashion, and
were loaded with the choicest delicacies
in season. Bishop Phelan presided. The
priests in attendance were:
