Mr. Deane's Letter.
Richmond, Va., May 22, '04.
This is to certify tbat tbe use of my

Mr. Be atc rs' Letter.
Rhhmonp, Va., May 23, '94.
To the Voters of Jackson Ward :
This is to certify that
I do not care to be placed in the atti?

der Christian.
In the meantime Mr. John G. Smith,
who had been regularly nominated on
the true Republican ticket withdrew
tnerefrom and strong efforts were made
to get him to allow his name to go on
tbe bogus ticket. He refused to allow
it to be done.
The legular Republican Convention
was called to order again Monday night
and the name of Mr. J. R. Griffin unani?
mously substituted for that of Mr.
Smith.
Messrs. A. P. Quarles, R. Banks Ran?
dolph, John W. Madison made desperate
efforts to induce others to take their
places and finally had to resort to the
remarkable procedure of keeping on the
ticket men who had withdrawn.
They substituted Isaac W. Carter for
Board of Aldermen. Royal White for
Common Council, W. H. Robinson for
Justice of the Peace.
Mr. James T. White bad the remarka?
ble good sense not to allow his name to
be used on tbe ticket and that of Mr.

made and Alderman John Mitchell, Jr.,

Address by Prof. D. B. Williams.
Opening of e New Colored Catholic
Chnreh?Installation of Its First
Paster.
Last Sunday, May 20, was a red let?
ter day tor the colored catholics ot Nor?
folk, Va., when their first pastor, Rev.
Wiersma was installed with appropriate
solemnity. The large, handsome build?
ing on Queen St., near Brewer, was fin?
ished just one year ago. The first floor
is the school containing lour large class
rooms while the upper story forms a
very attractive chapel, seating about
803. The beautiful stone altar is tbe
gift of the Rev. J. Dougherty, the pastor
of 8t. Mary's. With such a tine buildings
?? the colored catholics of Norfolk had rea
fl son to be proud. But what is the nae of
^ having a church without a priest ? So
h far the pastor of St. Joseph's Richmond
s had conducted a monthly service with
?. which the people could hardly be expect
n ed to be satisfied. Ix>ng and earnestly
f did they pray to get a priest to stay
a with them. After many disappoint
Beets their wishee were fulfilled at last,
and there were no happier people in Nor?
folk last Sunday than tbe members of
tbe new St. Joseph's Chuieh.
The solemn High mass at 10 o'clock
was celebrated by tbe new pastor, the
Rev. F. Leinagb, chaplain of the Hospi?
tal acting as deacon and Rev. L. J. Wel?
bers as eubdeacoti. Rev. J. R. Slattery
preached the sermon. He explained tbe
meaning and purpose of churches. At
all times, he said in part, special places
were set apart for the worship of tbe Al?
mighty, thus we read that Jacob dedi?
cated a special place for prayer, and it
wes there be saw that ladder reaching
from earth to beaven and angels ascend?
ing and descending. Ascending to carry
men's prayers to the throne of God. D*>
Bcendip_T to bring graces from God to
*j_an. Later on, the people at Godjt
E annand worshipped in the tabernacle
id when peace reigned everywhere Sol?
omon built a magnificent temple. The
first christians conducted their worship
mostly in private bouses. Whenever and
wherever sufficient liberty was given,
eh arches sprung pp every where.
Bat eau we not pray as weil at home ?
why have churches ? To pray in secret
le very good and necessary. But we are
ot mere individuals ; we are members
f society and consequently in a body
id as a society we are bound to public
testify to our belief in God and offer
m oar homage and petitions.
la conclusion he declared the church
rrnanently open and exhorted his
arers to love their church and above
iive up to their faith and thus spread
?out them the good order of Christ,
oe happy day was fitly concluded by
benediction of the lil. Sacrament at 8 P.
