It is that organization *.v:.i< ?? is supporting ".he Association (workers iu the* Philippines, and not any one member of it, as hua been erroneously reported. There being most to he done th? iv at this time, the auxiliary is assisting the army and navy department, not alone in helping to sup? port secretaries, bat?, also, in the distil, bution of literature. At present ii is devoting its attention to the furnishing of the siew NlivliI Ji,?me? Lit the ?New York navy-yard. This home, lis is already known, is similar to naval homes an Eng land.

A rs.)i-.?;'?i>n work in Porto Rico is just now being extended t?> ihi^ pot-ts throughout ili?' island. For some lime there has Ibecn a permanent .Association building in San Juan. 1; has the usual appointments of suri*, building, but the court-yii.rd is c t rcdwitih a tent, and her? ?meetings are hel i. very - > G :.- p crowded to their fullest capacity. There r.re about 1,600 enlisted men scattered throughout the island, and associations are organizing :??? fcisi ns possible among them'. These? are supplied with traveling libraries, the latter a feature of the* new Woman's Auxiliary work. For a year past the Association has maintained in Cuba fourteen rpading rooms, nine of them under direct super? vision r?f secretaries. The largest of these ?iu;irters has been in ? rented house at Camp Columbia eight jniles from Havana. Within a few days* there have been shipped somc/portable houses, mad?: com. plctc in this country, and capable of being set u;> and taken down at will. Those? are to 1??? put inlr? the different camps as needed. Throughout the inte rim? of Cuba, wherever troops are located, associations arc? forming. No small part of the Association Phil? ippine work is done on the transports. Fifty -cinys are sometimes rer?uircd in transit. One secretary, before the traps port reached the Indian Ocean, had CCO out of a total of 1,000, belonging to the Association. AVhile going through the Mediterranean S?a the lives of St. Peter and St. Paul were studied in regular Bible class work. In Manila the Govern? ment has given buildings near the Bridge of Spain, and in .the suburb of Cavit?, Which havo been fitted up in complete shape., .lust now the principal one, in the city itself, is being provint?! with a ?gymnasium. The latter is beneath a tent, which covers a large -court. Religious meetings are held in this building, almost always well attended. REACHING OFT. Within the past few weeks the .?Vsso cdation has extended its work in other parts of the Philippines, especially in the South. Secretaiies have been despatched to lloilo, to Par.ay, and to other points, and" Lilso to posts throughout Luzon. Efforts are making to maintain Associa? tion organizations at all of the posts, ami shipments of .?correspondence sup? plies, of literature, of gramophones, and of games have recently been made, in BISHOP CHARL1CS B. GALLOWAY. (One of the Southern Delegates.) ; order that these new stations may be | well equipped. In this latter work much : assistance has been afforded by the new i auxiliary. i All Association work in these new polit ! ical possessions has been, and still is, for ? thi soldiers ::::d sailors, an.l for young ! men of American parentage who may be s resi lent in them. No attempt has be?;n ? made to do anything for the natives. There are, indeed, two popular miscon i copiions ?"Concarning Association work. One is that Ui?Associ?tipn is not a pio i nccr. lt does not take the place of the j missionary, nor does it seek to plant churches. It follows the missionaries and I the churches, and goes to new fields only ? when workers in those fields make the ; demand. It ?cannot, therefore. begin p< rmanent ?work in Havana, in Manila, until there Is a Protestant Church" life in those cities, and young men belonging to the different churches ?to be reached and helped. The other misconception is that Asso? ciation secretaries take the place of chap. ;??? . The fact is that if every regiment and every war-vessel were provided' with a chaplain there would still be need ior Association workers. For the most part, and not by design, the workers for .the Association in our new political terri? tory Lire laymen. The instructions to them arc not to supplant, but supple? ment, the chaplain. They arc (provided ?????? equipments ti.at regular chaplains REV. DR. JOHN F. CANNON. .(Moderator of the. Presbyterian 'General Assembly.)

ENDOWMENT OF $1,000,000.' The International Committee of the Association has just started in upon the task of securing a permanent endow? ment. This endowment is to be known as the jubilee fund, to consist, if possible, of 51,000,000, and to be in hand by the time the convention is held in Boston next year, which convention is to make the 'fiftieth anniovrsary of the organiza? tion of Association -work in America. Associations in this country now spend $2,5O0.00O a year, and possess endowment funds and ct'ier permanent property worth $20,000,000. Practically all of this vast growth has been made since the organi. zation of the International Committee, in 1SG?;. This committee hns required for its support each year between live anel six per icenL c>f the amount expended by the associations themselves. Now it is purposed to raise Sl.000,000 for the support of this International Com? mittee* and its work. It Is not expected that it will furnish the entire support, but merely supplement contributions, for the demands upon the committee for enkcrgements of its scope and field are great in number, and far-reaching in extent. Funds are being secured for the maintenance of different branches of the work, "?s the educational, the army and navy, and' also for the general adminis? tration. A start has also been mad? toward the funds for the erection of a permanent International headquarters building, to be located in New Y'ork, and to provide rooms for the general adminis? tration of ?Association work in all North America. The delegates to tho Ecumenical Con? ference on Foreign Missions, to be held in Now Y'ork, April 21st to May 1st. are sent by the various societies having mis. sioriary work in foreign countries, ami' j by individual churches. By far the larger number come from the societies, but to date about 500 churches, of -all religious bodies, some of them as far west as Col? orado, have signified their intention to send delegates, charged with the duty e*f reporting the conference to their churches upon their return. Ample provision is to be made for all such delegates. .Men who will represent the societies are among the ?most prominent in the religious movements of America and of Kurope. There are about 2.000 of them, but a few from each of the principal bod ?es will serve to show what a represen? tative body of missionary supporters the BISHOP GEORGE W. PETERKIN.

Clerk of the Unsi :n.<*-.s Court. It can be truly said that the people of Richmond <_e> not lightly or thought? lessly dismiss tii.'ir publie servants. When an office-holder offers for re-election, the first questions asketl are these: "is he honest? Is he capable? Is he faithful?" And' if tho answer is yes, it has come- to be a sort of unwritten municipal law with us to re-elect him. Even a slight acquaintance -with local political history wlll furnish numerous illustrations' of this. And it ought to be so. It is a pleas? ing evidence of the sense of justice, the conservatism, ?and the poise and balance of character of our people. It is confidently Relieved that the peo p?o o?- Richmond will once more .vindicate . their claim to those qualities by return? ing to the clerkship ot tho Hustings Court the present Clerk, Mr. Walter Christian. No man can give a single rea? son why it should not be done. lie is the choice of the Judge of the court; he is an experienced, competent and' fearless officer; he is honest, ceipable, faithful and sober; he is a man of great simplicity of character?a manly, straight-forward. true-hearted gentleman, without fear and without reproach. Such men in ?pub!/, office arc the jewels in the crown of the community. Let us keep them there. This card is written and published without the knowledge of Mr. Christian. It is not intended as a gratification to him. but rather as a duty to the public which is due from THOSE WHO KNOW HIM. ' HAVE VOU HELPED THE STREET FAIR? If not do not let tho time pass without your being able to say that you have at least contributed to an enterprise which lias the advancement ' of your city and the business interests of your merchants at heart. If you have sub-, scribed you should nromptly mail your ! check to Mr. O. Herbert Funsten, treas? urer, and thus save the gentlemen, who give their time to so thankless an under? taking, unnecessary loss of time. YORK RIVER LINi?:? DAILY SER ? ir v.

Freeman Holds a Unique Record. WAITED ON MANY COUPLES, He Has Had Amusing and Pathetic Incidents Commingle in His Career He is Also ? Well-Known Ama? teur Comedian. ' Some people are destined to hold unique positions in the community; some seek suca positions, and some have them, thrust upon them. The.latter iposition is that held by Mr. Wilklo G. Freeman, one of the best known aud most popular young men of this city. The position held by Mr. Free? man is indeed a unique one, and he prob? ably carries the palm so far as Richmond is concern?e}, and probably so far as any other city '-anywhere is concerned. . In short, Mr. Freeman Is known among his friends, and from now on will be known by the public, as the champion "best man" in the country, in other words, Mr. Freeman has taken part In ' twenty-nine marriages, at ten of which ho was best man. This record, so far as I am informed, has -never been equal? led. ; Mr. Freeman has, in this exceptional and pleasant experience, had many amus ? ing incidents happen, and he has been placed in a ludicrous position several times. THOUGHT HIM THE. GROOM. "I remember, upon one occasion," said he." "that 1 was taken for the. groom. ?and in driving us off in the carriage we were taken to the depot. by the driver through a misapprehension. MR. W. G. FREEMAN. "At another time the same mistake happened, and somebody hit me With, an old shoe, and a lot of rice was. thrown down my collar. "These, however, are small things. I was invited to act as best man by a gen? tleman triend. In sending me the Invi? tation he failed to give the number of the residence of the bride, where the cer? emony was to be performed, and think? ing that I knew tho place, I started out. When I reached the number that 1 sup? posed to bo the right one, 1 rang the bell and was ushered into the parlor by a servant. "Everything there seemed to be in read? iness for the marriage ceremony. Palms and tlowers were placed around the room and a little altar had been erected. No one was around, but I heard many fe? male voices in the other part of the house. '"Finally a young lady came in. after I had been sitting there for some time, ami when she saw me she expressed some surprise, ami it turned out, after expla? nation liad been made, tli_t I had gone to the wrong house, and it was something of a coincidence that I should have gone to another wedding, instead of the one that 1 started out to attend." HIS YEARLY AVERAGE. Mr. Freeman is just thirty-one years old. The lirst couple that he waited upon was in the month of November, 1SSS. and he has averaged more than two a year ever since. Ho waited upon one imin twice, and ?was best man at two mar? riages within a week. Ie has seen his frien seen their families grow, but up to date his heart has remained his own. But when the time does come for him to cast his lot with that of some fair creature he? will not need a rehearsal. He knows the marriage service of all denominations by heart, and it ia just as easy for him? to march down tho centre aisle of a church as it is for the birds to fly through the free air of heaven. His ca? reer as best man has had Its sail fea? tures, for he acted as pall-bearer once at the funeral of the wife of a friend, for whom he had acted as best man. Mr. Freeman is nephew of the, late James A. Gi'ntry. who was known as "Truthful Jeems." He is employed at the Southern Railway Shops in Manches? ter as air-brake inspector, where he has been for eighteen years. He is an amateur comedian and has been, for a number of years one of the well-known team of Freeman and Wil? son. In this capacity he has enjoyeid much distinction, and has amused many audiences.
