The Second Baptist church raised over
SW.OOO oa Sunday toward, the erection o£
a. handsome new Louse of worship on
Its splendid lot at Franklin and Adams
gDrects. Jt is expected that the amount
. .will be largely increased, when the sub
scriptions of members .who were not pres
ent Sunday are reported.
A nLass-moeting- In the interest of tho
building fund was held in lieu of the
usual morning service. The attendance
v. as large and the meeting was charac
;i_nzed by deep interest and earnestness
of purpose. It was the expressed desire
of the leaders of the church to raise
$•{9,000, and more than that amount was
subscribed. Addresses lull of earnest
ness and setting' forth the expediency
of erecting a new house of worship were
made by, Hey. ~\\". li. L,. Smith, D. D.,
the pastor; Hon. J. Taylor Ellysbii; Dr.
George B. Steele, Mr. W- J. Morrissetle,
md ilr. William Ellyson. The collection
was taken alter these stirring talks.
Mr. Frank T. Orump, clerk of the church,
v.-ho was acting secretary of the meeting,
announced at the close of the session
that something more than $10,000 had been
realized. Three members of the church
gave ■ 53,00C»-* each; three members gave
S-.OiM each, and fix. members gave §1,000
tiich, and quite a number gave ?ouo and
Mnailer amounts. It was stated yester
day that" only about two thirds of the
members were present Sunday, and that
a large proportion of the abseu.t ones
would certainly give something, swelling
the aggregate. The money is payable in
"lie, two, and three years. It is ex
pected that :l building committee will
soon be appointed, and it will not be long
iiofor-e actual work on the church will
be begun,
. There was general rejoicing yesterday
over the result of Sunday's' meeting. The
amount raised was perhaps the largest
ever subscribed at any meeting here of
like character.

K'.-v. S. It. Maxwell, pastor of the Third
CluJftian church, preached a". very in
tttesUng 1 sermon Sunday morning on the
"i'tbaiable and L'noebatable in Religion."
Hi* toxt was: "Lfc\ every man be lully
persuaded in his owifemind." The speaker
U.at in the realms of thought and con
tii;<-t in mattors of religion there, was un
debaii.ble and debatable ground. On the
facts and truths of religion there
v- ■■■■-: in-rUict agreement amongst Chris
tens, but in the nature of these facts
ami truths there was room' lor endless
eemroverHy. To illustrate this proposition
tit- ix-lerred to the Bible. He said that
>t was; undt.batable that the Bible was a
itvtlation "from God, but the nature of
frspiratloh of the authors of the various
<ioii merits composing the* Bible was a
*-vijtct for debute. The existence of
•iod is a simple, nndebatable truth, but
'•'■■■■ nature of Deity is a subject for con
trovtrsy. He .said it wag impossible to
'•• - f ii!ii "God; and the human creeds of the
tc:Uuries were an exhibition of the pow
criejJKness of iho human mind to solve
tin : ■ mystery of Deity. He said it was a
■■I'laln, undebatabie truth, sustained by
■i answerable factF, that Jesus was the
Christ, the Son of tho Uving God, but
1i"1 i"- analyses of the nature of Christ's
jKisoa had rent the Church with the war
'■i controversy. The conditions of salva-
V"' a were plain and simple and not iv
«i>yute, but the analysis of the nature
" -i relations of these conditions belonged
l <> the malm of speculation. JTo argued
''■"■'■ a man's salvation depended on. his
•'-'■'•nuance of the undeba table, and. that'
. l"'-'l "'-' ck-batuWe wer<> unessential; and he
aswrtea that the division in Protesiantism
v-<-i'.'v -<-i. the result of controversy over the
flcbai.ablc, and since the; debatable were
■■«:it>>:c-mlal Rectarianism. reduced -to- its
ultimate analysis was pure nonsence. The
I" B/Uon of the Disciples,. he said, was this:
v'nity on the undoba table, liberty on the
abatable, and chariiy in all things. . - .
, J-<;v.J -<;v. G. 33. B. Smith, nf tlie - Epworth
•'UlhodiKt church, preached a lorceful .
f'.-inon Sunday night- in defence .of the
e»n w!jo works for. nor bread. He said:

Professor Hamill, the great Sunday
school worker, addressed two mass-meet
ings on Sunday— one at the. Third Presby
terian church in the afternoon and one at
Gz-aco-Street- Baptist church at night.
The attendance at both was large, despite
the unfavorable weather. The addresses
were of a high order, and calculated to
increase interest in this great and im
portant work.
Dr. Hawthorne's sermon at Grove-Ave
nue church Sunday morning on "Power
of the Press for Good or Evil" was a
strong plea for pure literature. He warn
ed his hearers, especially parents and the
young, against the evils of impure books
and sensational newspapers. In conclusion
he said: :.
"It is simply impossible for us to build
pun? and noble characters for ourselves,
or to elevate the moral condition o"f thoso
aiouhd us. if we keep . company with a
corrupt literature. It is related of a
celebrated painter that he could not look
upon an unsightly object when engaged
in his professional work without receiv
ing impressions from it that would creep
into the pictures which he painted. Mozart
cpu.d never havo written his immortal
anthems and oratorios if he had been
familiar with Irish ballads and negro
minstrol songs. Fathers and mothers, I
solemnly admonish you that it is-impos
sible to k<?ep home pure, peaceful, and
happy, and send out from it sons and
daughters who will be loyal to . truth,
duly, and honor if you permit unclean
hooks and newspapers to ,be read in your
households." -""

zer resolution ■ to investigate Secretary;
Gage, which the Committee on Rules re
commended should be sent to the Ways
and Means Committee, as the latter com
mittee, has the response of the Secretary
in its possession.
There was no opposition to the proposed
action," but Mr. Richardson, of Tennessee,
and Mr. Sulzer, of New York, used it as a
text for renewing their attacks upon the
Mr. Gage- was defended by Mr. Hopkins,
of Illinois; Mr. Hill, of Connecticut, and
Mr. Dalzell, of Pennsylvania.
Mr. Richardson, of Tennessee, leader of
the. minority, while not opposed, to the
reference, said he was decjdedly of the
opinion that an investigation should' be
made. The government had taken a paper
credit for- $3,215,000 for . the custom-houso
property, which left the Pitiful sum of
150,000, still due the government. Why
could the credit not have been for the
full amount?
He insif?ted that, the reason had de
veloped. It had been the intention of the
Secretary of the Treasury, he said, -to re
lieve the bank of its tax obligation to the
State and city of New York by retaining
the title in the government. The govern
ment has agreed to pay rent. for the pro
perty, yet the bank was not to pay taxes
upon it. He called- attention to the letter
of the Secretary of the Treasury, asking
the Congress to appropriate §10,000 for the
Property sold in the manner he had de
scribed, to prevent the bank from being
liable for taxes, ".ir that was. the. Secre
tary's motive," said Mr. Richardson, em
phatically, "I am here to condemn it, and
to insist that it ill-becomes the Secretary
of the Treasury to go into partnership
with a -private- corporation. 1 ' „ x s.
With the interest on' its nominal pay
ment to the government and its deposited
bonds, and .with the rental charge upon
the government, the rental being 4 per
cent, of the purchase price; this! juggling
had enabled the bank to mako $337,000 tip
to date."
Mr. Sulzer, of New York, the author
of the resolution, said tho Republican
party dared neither to smother nor ignore
the resolution. Ever since .the present
Secretary had been in office, Mr. Sulzer
said, he- had been aiding the National City
Bank at the expense of other national
banks. It had been making millions,
"coming and going." He declared that
the people of the? country recognized that
the Secretary of the Treasury was unfit
and incompetent to hold tho purse-string's.
The United States Treasury was made the
instrument of the Standard Oil Trust.
Ay, more, the people believed that the
Secretary should be impeached. .
Mr. Hopkins, of Illinois, in reply, said
that all this discussion was premature and
out of place.
"If. simply rise," said he, "to protest
against the unfounded, unwarranted, and
■untrue charges made by the gentleman
from. Tennessee . .(Richardson). What
right has he to impute false and frauda
lent motives to the Secretary of the
"Why did the ?r>o,ooo remain unpaid?"
interrupted Mr. Richardson. :
"I'll come to that," replied Mr. Hopkins,
proceeding. He said fc Mr. Richardson had
charged -that the Secretary had entered
into a fraudulent' contract: VI aflinn," he
said," "that there Is no support whatever
for the charge. The custom-house property
v/as sold, to the National City' Bank. It
took possession and made; a lease. I
claim that the city and State of New. York
now proceed, to the collection of : taxes
just as if ; the. paper title had passed.
Under ; the law,' the Secretary of the Trea
sury sold the property to the highest
bidder.- The National, City Bank bid $190,000
more. than any. other "bidder. What is
the ■;• next offlence 1 ? That the purchase
price 'was, deposited • with the National
City Bank. That bank is a government
depository, ' selected by a Democratic ; ad
minstration because of its | financial stand
ing, and a deposit in' that bank' was the
same as-if it had 'been in ; the Sub-Trea
sury or. in the Treasury Itself."
Mr. Hill, of V Connecticut, '; declared that
the resolution for. an investigation was
pure buncombe, being intended for political
purposes, as a; similar resolution ; directed
against the -Democratic Secretary, in the
last administration,, was. As to holding
back $30,000, Mr./Hill' replied that' the law;
under.iwhieh the property was sold; com
pelled.,the( payment of only $750,000 cash,,
the .remainder: from time to time. '.The
Secretary -was compelled to receive any
cash payment in excess of $750,000. Further
more, the city -:- could not lose th© taxes
upon the property. He proceeded to ex
plain the tax laws of New York relative
to national banks. ■
MTherefore," said. he; in conclusion, "the
disreputable :■ charge "that the Secretary, of
the' Treasury, did anything; with, fraudu
lent" intent .-falls:; to the ground." . (Ap

«lcht — Consolidation tlucstlon. . ;
'(Staff Special— Washington Star.)
CINCINNATI, a, January 2!).— Mr. • M. :
E. Ingalls, president of the Chesapeake
and Ohio and Big Four railway compa
nies, who was in. Washington several days
last .week, in conference with other prom
inent, rail way men on matters of . interest
to the New York Central, Pennsylvania,
and Chesapeake and Ohio railway, com
panies, returned to this city last evening.
./To a - Star reporter who called on him
Mr. Ingall3' said: "I have just returned
from my last trip over tho Chesapeake
and Ohio as the president of the corpora
tion. The ownership of the property hav
ing passed Into the hands of partie3 with
whose policy of management I do not
agree, I will, February Ist, retire from
the office I now hold with the company,
and Mr. George W. Stevens, now general
manager 'of the: road, will become my
successor," „
.; Asked as to tho truth of the report that
the Pennsylvania and New York Central
railway companies have recently acquired
a' large amount of stock in the ;Chesa
peake; and , Ohio, Mr.. Ingalls answered:
"I do not know whether it is the Penn
sylvania railroad as a company,* or
whether the persons: who bought that
block' of stock mado the purchase as in
dividuals. As to the New York Centra, a
interest in the Chesapeake and Ohio, all
I can say is that the Vanderbiltshave
parted with all their holdings, in tho
Chesapeake and I Ohio."
Mr. Ingalls : was questioned as to
whether the holdings secured by the two
interests mentioned amounted to a ma
jority of the stock, and he replied in the
negative, adding that he could not co
incide with the views as to various mat
ters o£ operation held by the new, pur
chasers, and even if .they did not control
a majority of.the stock in their own right;
they would have enough Influence to have
their wishes carried out.:
: Mr. Ingalls was further asked if there
is any probability that the Pennsylvania,
Baltimore and Ohio, and Chesapeake and
>Ohio:will be consolidated into one system
. and^under ono management, as has been
■ reported In some quarters, and to^this ho
"Speaking only for the Chesapeake and
Ohio (I know nothing about Baltimore
and Ohio affairs), I am sure they will not.
The only changes, that will be made
among the employees of tha Chesapeake
and Ohio will be, as I have already
stated, that I will retire and Mr. Stevens
■will take my place. I am, o£ course, .to
remain at the head or the Big Four."
The suggestion .was made to Mr. Ingalls
that if th© Pennsylvania Railroad Com
pany, or. the individuals connected with it
so desired, they could dictate the future
policy of the Chesapeake and Ohio, and
that this seemed to be the natural se
quence of the purchase.
"Ask me something easier than that,"
was the reply.
Mr. Ingalls further said. In answer to
questions, that there has been, so far as
he is aware, no agreement, either, verbal
or written, between the owners of the
va-rious trunk linos as to the maintenance
of' freight and passenger rates. .
"To follow any other course at this
time would," he said, "be nonsensical, as
the roads havo all the traffic they can
carry, and no one is asking- for any reduc
tion of the present tariffs o'£ tha several
Speaking of various rumors as to whole
sale discharges as a result of the new
conditions about to be put into effect, Mr.
-ingaii3 saiu:
"A meeting' of the Board of Directors
of the Chesapeake and Ohio Company has
been called to take place in New York
Thursday next,, v/hen the change I have
stated will be made. At the same meet
ing Mr. Decatur C. Axtell, of Richmond,
Va.. now second vice-president, will be
made iirst "vice-president in place of Mr,
George T. Bliss,. of New York, v.-ho, hav
ing sold his holdings in tha company, is
no longer connected with it. .There will
bo no changes o ther than . those I : have
stated, and there Is no necessity for any
employee of the Chesapeake and Ohio,
from the highest to tha lowest, to f?ar
that the change of ownership o'£ the road
■Win cause him to lose his position. '
"But for jealousy of the success of: the
Chesapeake and Ohio those who have re
cently made the large purchases of stock
already mentioned would never have in
vested.-■-'■- . ■/.•.■.:.. ■■■■■':'. .. :.,-■-.
"I noticed in many papers a few. days
apo that Mr. Chauncey M. Depew. whose:
official connection with , the New York
Central road is chairman of the Execu
tive Board, remarked that the Chesapeake
end Ohio had been a disturber .ot rates.
Whoever told Mr. Defew that gave him
misinformation. The Chesapeake . and
Ohio has never been a disturber of rates,
and has- simply followed other trunk
lines." ■ :. '■; J. T.:i1..:;
