REV. J. SUMNER STONE"
And His Remarkable Worlc In the Slums of New York. A FORMER, WHEELING MAN Wlioso liifc Is Consecrated to Lining Up tlio Fallon?C'nrloits Opou Air Services?Footl For (lie Hungry ami IIclpForthe Sick?Assisted liy His Wife in tlio Work. Tlio New York Horning Adrtrtiscr, of Sunday, contains a lengthy-description of tlio remarkable work which is being done ill Iho slums of the Brent metropolis by Hov. J. Sumner Stone, so well known In Wheeling. The article k illustrated and contains an excellent portrait ot Mr. Stone. Tlio following description of the man and his work, as given by the Adtcr(uer, will be rend with interest by hi* hundreds of friends and Acquaintances in Wheeling: #An odd, interesting mid impressive ucoue is enacted even' evening in the opon air nt the east sick! of Washington Square and Washington plpco. Ileproduoed on a canvas it would make a wonderful picture in its conglomeration of colore, of types of Immunity and the mixture of races and nationalities, it would be impressive lor its religious elements, and interesting for its depiction of quaint types and novel characters. In the background of the scene are the dark, Gothic urclies of the Aabury Methodist Episcopal Church, tho place of worship oi some of New York's aristocratic families before the tide of | fashion swept them northward from their historic old mansions. The I church in those halcyon duys had the tenots of tho Dutch Reformed uenomi-1 nation held forth from its carven pulpit, and had for its stanchost pillar, old j Cornelius Vanderbilt. But with the i migration from the square of the rich j ana influential it lost its prestige and declined until the membership dwin- j died down to a metaphorical handful. ! Its career since lias been unnoteworthy, until a little more than a year ago, when thejiev. J. 8. Stone, who had just returned from seven years of arduous missionary work in Iniiia, took hold of it. It is this young clergyman who forms tho central figure in the background of the picture. With him are his wife, a gray-haired cornet player and three or four other auxiliaries. In tho foreground, in tho street and on the edge of the square, is a motly assemblage of people of all classes, ages, types and nationalities. It is the lower element, liowevor, which predominates?the denizens of the slums, the poor, the depraved, the homeless, the godless. There are picturesque Italians, decked out in gorgeous colors, workinL'men still dusty and begrimed from the day's toil, mothers witlibabes at their breasts, jJale-faced girls of ten or twelve years of ORO. staggering under the burden of a little brother or sister, rum-sodden tramps, and smart youths recking with blasphemy and cigarettes. The setting sun is shedding a glorious flood of golden light over the square as Dr. Stone, his wife and assistants take their places on the steps of the church and. begin their zealous work of teaching the Gospel to a class rarely, if ever, found inside church walls. They commence by singing a hymn, to the accompaniment of a tiny organ and the cornet, whoso far-reaching strains bring from the dizzy southward-lying streets a.crowd which soon swells to many hundreds. It is true most of the Italians among them understand few, if any, of the preacher's words, yet his earnestness and a nameless something in his personality seem to attract them, for they coiye again and again to theso meetings. Of course, many in the an dience are drawn thither simply through curiosity. There are loafers and scoffers, who hang around in groups, indulging in jeering and blasphemous remarks, and criticising in their coarse vernacular tho proceedings in general and tho various speakers who address them. But at the first sound of Dr. Stono's voice the most unruly become silent and often attentive. Whethor it is the quiet dignity of his mannor, or the fact that these keonwitted sons of the slums recognize intuitively the friendship and sympathy, which this man feels for their kind, it is certain that he exercises a singularly magnetic influence upon them. Tie speaks in a language that the humblest who know English can understand, and he knows how .Jo win and hold their attention, and illustrate bv homely anecdotes truths which would otherwise be beyond their comprehension. Dr. Stone begins these outdoor meetings in the springtime, and continues them as late in the fall as the weather permits. He has succeeded in bringing into tho work many prominent citizens interested in reaching the poorer people, and receives material support from them, his principal patron being S. W. Bowon, of No. 138 South Fifth avenue. Every Sunday evening, at (5.30 o'clock, a special service is held in the basement of tlie church for the "Army of Despair," as the tramps, the homeless and poor unemployed are called. immediately afterwards a large cup of hot coflbo and two huge sandwiches are served to these forlorn, half-starved wretches. Fully ten thousand persons have been assisted in this way during the past year. The good done is incalculaldc. Many came at lirst hardened and degraded, listening unwillingly to the prayers for the sake of the food thov would receive. Finding themselves to" their surprise not received as miserable outcasts, and reminded that hell alone awaited them, but treated as unfortunate fellow creatures who had but to ask to he- forgiven, great numbers of them have been won over to a new and honest life. It wan not more cold charity that Was extended to them, but a systematic brotherly love. Dr. Stone and the members of his congregation soon found themselves pitiably besieged with prayers for a night's*lodging. Here is another problem. To discriminate between the worthy and unworthy was impossible. To jjive thorn money was inadvisable. ? 1(11 I1IC VllilKIVICI IOIIV |'iwai|>viiioa this practical philanthropist set to work and established early lust winter a wood and coal yard at No. 15 Minctta street, where (or the price of a few hours work at sawing and splitting kindling wood, tiioso who through misfortune had become homeless, were enabled to secure a good, clritn bed and nourishing food. Tho wood was Bold to cover the expanses 01? the establishment. During the several winter months hundreds of inen of all trades and nationalities, who were "down on their luck," took advantago oi this opportunity, thus saving themselves from wandering hungry in the streets and haunting station-houses at night. During the greater part of tho day they could look for more remunerative employment and return toward evening its if to a home and oam again their supper and night's lodging by splitting the required eight sticks of cordwood. Other institutions of the Asbury Church are a free dispensary and an employment and information bureau. To the*former come the sick poor from the neighboring districts, who receive not only medical assistance* but invariably kind and sympathetic treatment. Those unable to come themselves are visited in their wretched homes by the doctors and deaconesses who aid in this work. Their cheerless rooms are mado as cleanlv and comfortable as possible, they are provided with suitable nourishment and the ereat gospel of Hope is lovingly and patientlv taught to them. It is i>r .1 \v rtnll i.f Ko. 200 Madison street, who freely lends his valuable medical services to this charitable work. The Kinployment Bureau has met with great success. About two hundred persons apply every month for work. Of these an average of twenty are supplied with permanent positions, while lor the majority temporary employment is found. Dr. Stone keeps in communication with farmers in several .States, and in tlu; spring a largo number of the applicants are sent to them atf laborers. I>r. Stone tries not to lose track of those whom he has helped, and often hears most satisfactory accounts of them' The mission has dnno some remarkable woik among fallon woMen, who often stop out of curiosity to listen to the street meetings, or in case of dire want drift to the employment bureau. Instead of preachingfto them of the Hoformatory and the itefuge, they are urged with infinite kiaidness to "come to Him who forgiveth all sins," ami are taught that the possibility of an honest life is still before them. Any cflort to retrieve the past meets with every help and encouragement. And in ' cases where the conversion is proved to bo sincere, employment and a home is found for them* where their past record is unknown. It is a notable fact that a woman of this type once converted, almost invariably succeeds in bringing others of her kind into the I fold. ^ CRIMINAL NOTIvS.

Major McKinley was the central figure of the day, and was received with terrific ovation when he arose to speak on "National Strength." lie said in part: Since 1870 this spot has enjoyed many notable celebrations. It gives me ureut pleasure to meet so many New England people here, and especially at one of Mr. Bowen's celebrations. 1"have known and liked Mr. Bowen /or forty vears, when he was a merchant in New York, | and hud for a motto: "My goods are for | sale, but not my principles?' It was in this split that "our forefathers said to England. "Our blood is more at your service than our principles." It was such sentiments as these that has kept the nation together for more than a hundred years. One-fourth of our national life has been spent in war. War both internal and external, which was to preserve the government of 1770. There has been three great events in our national life. The great triumph which lesulted in the independence of the American Colonies, an event without a parallel in the world's history. Twenty-five years after the formation of the federal union wo challenged Great Uritain because of her overt acts upon the high sens. Without army, navy or resources tho young giant challenged formidable England. lluving whipped her, we turned our attention to allairs at homo; we found slavery among us and that it was not a good tiling to have. After many email struggles the Missouri Compromise bill was passed. The second great event was the formation of a federal union undepa written constitution. Our enemies said it could not be done, for we had set up a lot of little nations, each with tariff laws of their own. We said we would uuite all these I governments under ono, and it was done. Sineo then there hue been no doubt oi tho perpetuity of the union. Tho third event was tho Rebellion, which resulted in tho Union's preservation after a struggle which cost moro men and money than any of tho wars of France and England. Our only thought win iirAsoct'n ITnimi nf mir fnttwru. As Lincoln said, "Wo will preserve the Union, with or without slavery." All I as a citizen ask is that the compart agreed to bv Grant and Lincoln shall bp the law of our country. More we have not asked; less we will not accept. We must not prove faithless to our trust, and while we forgive our enemies we must not forget the boys that fell. Some foreigners say we brag too much about our government. I say we don't. It is the best in the world, and the judgment of sixty million people is butter than that of a favored few who rule by heritage or accident. I am not going to make u tariff speech, as some thought, for it would nut be nroper. I am an American citizen, and uolicve that thev are better than any others because ol the American home and because of the laws we have made tor the American boy and girl. I have no objection to foreign products for home consumption, but 1 think more of home products. George Washington thought enough t6 wear a coat maiJe in Connecticut at his inauguration, and it (lmni in Inn illnrv. Some moil who want to bo inaugurated President would not think enough of home nroducts to do this, but I do not think we Khali inaugurate them. However, I wish to say that Senator Aldrich has done more far our industries than any other senator. We have had fifty years of prosperity, and we shall not overlook this to* form an alliance with people who have not always beon loyal to the. flag. Men of New England, stand by vour public schools, for schoolmasters nave done more for you than, anything else. Stand byyour priceless heritage. Cold, cough, coflin is what philosophers term "a logical seauonce."
