A large share of the Jewish population of Chi
cago will unite this afternoon in the interesting
and impressive ceremonies connected with lay
ing the comer-stone of a new temple dedicated
to their faith. At 3 o’clock to-day the corner
stone of the new church of the Jewish Congre
gation Sinai will be laid iu accordance with
the rites and belief of the Jewish religion. The
event, in the minds of the large number of
people wbo adhere to this form of belief
is regarded with much Interest, and all of the
most prominent followers of the Jewish faith
will participate in the ceremonies.
is one of the most flourishing among Chicago
Jewish churches, and embraces the beat-known
Chicago Jewish people. It is one of the oldest
prominent churches organized in this city, al
though there are a number of minor congrega
tions of Israelites which claim a longer exist
ence. It was organized in 1861, under the
charge of Dr. D. FelsenthoL one of the Zion
congregation in tho West Division. After a
formation bad first been made, the members
composing tbe Society mob in a building on
Monroe street, near Clark. They worshiped
there for two years, and, in 1863, purchased
a church then located at tbe comer of Van Bu
renstreetandThirdavenue, In 1865, the minister
under whose charge tbe Society bad been formed
departed for other fields of labor, and Dr. Cbron
ick was called to tbe pastorate. He officiated up
to tbe time of tbe fire. Tbe building then occu
pied by the congregation was destroyed in the
conflagration of 1371, bat tbe Society maintained
an existence, and shortly afterwards rented the
Olivet Baptist Chutch, comer of Wabash aven te
and Fourteenth street, where they worshiped
until about a year ago under tbo ministry of Dr.
Kohler, the present clergyman of the church.
Tno congregation was composed of business
men, many ot whom were prominent in Chicago
mercantile and commercial circles, and all pos
sessed of very liberal religious ideas. They
were not disposed to adhere to the Jewish cus
tom of worshiping upon Saturday, and many
of them determined to concede to tbe oilier de
nominations and attend to their religions duties
on the usually-recognized Sabbath. As the
chorch was occupied by the usual con
gregation on that day it coold not
bo procured by the Society for Sunday
worship, and they determined to seek quarters
elsewhere. They did so, and leased, in Janu
ary. 1371, Martice’s Hall, at tho comer of Indi
ana avenue and Twenty-second street, where
they new meet. Kecently tney purchased the
ground at the comer of Indiana avenue and
Twenty-first street, uhero their new temple is in
process of erection.
The congregation has grown considerably in
recent years, and now omhracesllO heads of
families. They are actuated by very liberal
tendencies, and have departed largely from
many of tiiolr old national customs.
iM X .
which is in process of construction, ana the
coroer-utone of which will be laid to day, is
located at the southeast corner of Indiana ave
nue and Twenty-first etieet, diagonally opposite
the First Presbyterian CLmich. It will h«?o a
ground area of 92 by 119 feet, and an altitude at
the eaves of 51 feet, and at the peak of the roof
or Si foot. The top of the centra) dome, which
will crown the structure, will be 130 leet above
the eidowalk. Tbo basement, which fronts on
Indiana avenue, is approached by a vestilmle 13
feet m width, which extends across tbs entire
front. From it are two stairways leading to the
auditorium above, each feet in width. There

nottb!e instance thereof occurs in the translation
of the Greek word “parskletoa,"
This word is found hat firs times In the Greek
New Testament, and is used only by John. It
ie rendered in John's Gospel by •* comforter,"
as follows:
And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you
another Comforter, that he may abide with you for
ever. *
£ven the Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot
receive, because it aeeth him not, neither knoweth
him. but ye know him, for he dwelleth with yon, and
ah&ll be in you.
But tu» Comforter, which !• tbs Holy Ohort, whom
the Father will aend in my name, he shall you
all thing*, and bring all things to your
whatsoever l have said unto you. r
But when the Comforter ia come, whom I win send
unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of Truth,
which proceedeth from the Father, he wh*Tj testify of
mo.
Nevertheless I ten you the truth. It to expedient
for you that I go away; for if Igo not away, the
Comforter win not coxae unto you; but If I depart, £
will send him onto you.
Id ifie first Epistla of John, ill, it fparakle
toa) is translated “ advocate." The Terse tesds
thus?
Uy little children, three Ihlnge write I onto yon that
ye am not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate
with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.
It (parakietoa) should be translated by the
same English word in each instance. If it is
correctly translated comforter in the Gospel. it
should also be translated comforter in the
Epistle, This is undeniable. The English word
advocate elves the original, concise, and cor
rect meaning of the Greek word 4 * parakietos.”
It signifies “ one who is called or summoned to
aid another," and more especially ** to advocate
the cause of another before a court of Justice
•* ao advocate," “ a pleader,'* “ one who appears
as counsel for a defendant." The office of the
parakletos in John's Gospel, os described and
defined therein, agrees with the definitions of
the word above given. John, xvi. 8, reads:
And when he (viz: the parakletos] to come, he will
reprove the world of sin and of riguteouaueua and of
judgment.
This is an emphatic and forcible statement ot
the office of the paraklofcos. The word ** re
prove ” in this verse fails to give the full force of
the original Greek word, which is 44 ©legchi.” It
is somewhat difficult to express the foil meaning
of the original by one English word. 44 Convince n
expresses the meaning better than 44 reprove.’*
A. translation of 44 parakletos ” by the same
English word furnishes strong proof of the doc
trine of the Trinity, for in the Gospel John save
that the parakletos is the Holy Spirit, and m the
Epistle he says that it (the parakletos) is Ados
Const, which proves that Jesus Christamrtbe
Holy Spirit are one and tbo same.
Another remarkable instance occurs in Mat
thew xxv. 16, which reads iu the Common Ver
sion thus: ,
And these shall go away Into everlasting punish
ment ; bat the righteous into Ufo eternal.
The words 44 everlasting ” and 41 eternal ” are
translated from the same Greek word, viz:
44 amnios." The same English word should bo
used in both clauses, viz; 44 eternal.”

A SIO,OOO CHALLENGE.
THE REFORMED EPISCOPALIANS r.AT.T.ym OX.
Chicago, June 13.— T0 ihe £ev. William if.
FosUethicaiie: The writer of ibis article listened
to your sermon In Christ Church Sunday last,
and also found it spread before him in the Tunes
of tbe next day. The thanks of the public are
due to you for having boldly stepped out into
the lyceam of the public newspaper, where your
beliefs and statements may be challenged as to
their truth and soundness/and tested at the bar
of public opinion.
You spoke of the miraculous birth of John, by
which it appears that* you also are a believer in
supernatural religion, a religion not of facts and
truths already established, but, on the contrary,
a religion of unostablished and constantly shift
ing fancies and delusions, worshiping gods
which are purely human criticisms, as I will en
deavor faithfully to ahowyou. It appears from
the New Testament that an 41 angel” appeared
to Zacfi arias and prophesied the birth of John ;
that 44 angels ” appeared wMary and prophesied
the birth of Jeaus; and. later, that the same or
other 14 acgela " appeared to the shep
herds and (in tho current language of
those ancient times) announced His birth,
etc. Now, 1 claim that those stories aro
not, true stories. In our day angels, fairies,
genii, and such other intangibles, ore shown to
be purely and only creations of ignorant, imagi
native, or disorders J brains, and to have no ex
istence in fact, either in this or any past
age of tbe world’s history. It is also further
most plainly shown that beliefs concerning them
have varied widely, and are constantly varying
according to tbe superstition or intelligence of
the people among whom such visionary ideas
have gained a foothold. Even tbe Catholics,
with all tneir dogmatic statements, have not
ventured to define the qualities and characterist
ics of “angels.”
The truth of the miraculous birth of John and
Ghost rests most-decidedly upon the truth of
those stories. If not true, then Christ was tbe
Sou of God only In tbe sense that all mankind
are the sons of God. It also follows that His
mother was not a virgin any more Xhan His
grandmother, which latter truth (?) tbe Catholics
have boldly proclaimed in tbe dogma of 44 The
Immaculate Concepcion of tbe Virgin Mary.” It
still further follow*) chat the idea of Christ’s
Atonement is the work of man’s minds, and un
true, and, in fact, you?whole system of religion
falls to tbe ground, and has falsehood, and not
truth, for its foundation.
Now, for any labor you mav bo pat to to show
v'uit tb* stories in the Kew Testament concern
ing the '““ K n and Christ ore true, and
not the troditiona of a legen
dary and mythological age, x til pay you tbo
sum of SIO,OOO. the-proof you furnish to belaid
before and accepted by a committee made up of
intelligent men. For instance, one astronomer,
one ancroscoptst. one geologist, one chemist,
oue civil engineer, ouo principal in a pabUo
school, oue uroauaent bookseller, one mathema
tician, one traveler, aod oue electrician, or chos
en from and other occupations that require toe
constant dealing with facts and the throwing oat
of oil humbugs and delation*.
Yoa say, “ Take the idea' of Christ dying for
the sms of mau out of the Church, aod oar
leligioa becomes but an empty sham.” fiat,
suppose it U dearly shown to Vo a that the dog
ma is a human invention only, and that it rests
entirely upon the ignorance and unsound edu
cation of the neople who put their trust in it.
Will you still continue to ding to it ? Is it of
more importance that your particular form of
religion should continue to exist than that the
truen icgardiug it should prevail ?
Go with mo back through the centuries for a
little while. V/a stand . irt the summit cl a
Temple m Mexico. Ahnud it is gathered a
vast multitude to witoesesf religions ceremony.
Up the steep side* of the vast structure toils a
pioce-aion. chanting religions anthems, beating
drums, and carrying bunueis inscribed with mot
toes which are the central ideas of thoxr faith.
A victim, one of God's own children, is borne in
the procession dretsed for the coraiug sacrifice.
He is thrust forward, and. notwithstanding bis
straggles and appeals' for mercy, u finally bound
to the reeking altar. ~Tho priest performs the
nsc&l incantations, ami then, seizinglu* glittering
knife, plunges it into the ehnnking breast and
side of Lis shrieking victim: iueeruhg nia
bloody hands, he tears out the heart
and holds it up. still bleeding and quiv
enmr. to the gaze of the cowed aod
frightened multitude. Another victim is brought
forward, and the scene is again to be repeated.
Wo spring forward and stay the arm of the bigot
ed and besotted priest. Wo implore him for
sweet charity’s sake to desist from farther each
useless and brutalizing ceromouies,—for the
sake of present aud future geueranons, and for
the sake ot the pleading wife aod little children
of the victim.
But he say© to ns in reply: “Takeaway tbo
idea that the sacrifice of Human beings is cot
necessary for the religions good of Uls m ilti
tnde and onr religion becomes but an empty
sham.” “Let it become so, then,** wo cay.
“It is not true. It is a human inven
tion, and the people would be happier
and better if they were not under the iulluecce
of such bloody teachings.**. We put lain UU
hands tbe microscope and telescope, and show
him God’s wonderful creation, front the; infi
nitely small to tbe infinitely great, and the loving
care the Great Father has shown to tbo most in
significant of his creations, We open his mind
to the conception of some of the oeautifnl and
harmonious laws with Vhich God governs H;s
universe. Instead of tbe tyrant he becomes a
scholar, and, toiling patiently thereafter to die
cover new troths, teaches his people what he. has
learned from ns. They are disenthralled and
freed, and the chains of a galling religious des
potism have dropped from off their xamds, &o£
