C, 1 KBW PASTOR OF FIRST PRESBY TERIAN CHURCH, REV. THOMAS J. GRAHAM, GREETED BY LAR&IT CROWDS BOTH MORNING A2TD EVENING YESTERDAY. Record breaking attendance at all services marked the first appearance of Rev. Thomas J. Graham as pastor of the First Presbyterian church in this city yesterday. At the morning service the main auditorium and the Sunday school room were completely filled while the evening service called out several times the usual attendance. Mr. Graham preached two fine ser mons his morning topic was Growth in Grace, the text being from Second Peter and the sermon was prefaced by a short statement by Mr. Graham in which he thanked the people of his congregation for the warmth of their reception, for the whole-hearted hospi tality which has been extended on ev ery hand and for the magnificent aud ience which was present to greet him at his opening sermon. The evening sermon was from the text "Blessed is He that Cometh in tho Name of the Lord," taken from that passage in Mathew which tells of the Saviour's entry Into Jerusalem, the inci dent upon which Palm 191i. $• day is founded and Mr. Graham built upon this inci dent an attractive word picture of what he termed one of tho rare gala days in the earthly ministry of Christ. Mr. Graham is a speaker of splendid power and his eloquent periods wera much appreciated. In his morning ser mon he spoke of growth as one of thd most interesting phases of life and de picted the possibilities of growth in spiritual as well as physical life. The parent, doting on his little child still finds his greatest hopes based upon what it will grow to be the sower lov ing his vocation of tilling the soil still finds his greatest interest in what is zo sowing. Such is the development of christian character it broadens and deepens the best that is in humanity and brings man nearer to the pattern which God has furnished in his son Jesus Christ. The evening sermon was especially attractive as it presented the Saviour l.i a phase of life which is little consider, cd. The speaker told of the multitude which had gathered to do honor to Jesus, o£ the joy which must have fill ed his heart when he received the hom age of those who gathered to welcome him to the holy city and who paved his way with their garments and the branches of palm treest while hosannas rang from the throats of hundreds, echoitig and re-echoing down through the ages to the present time. Mr. Graham urged his hearers to let Palm Sunday have a new meaning to their hearts, to mark a new step in their spiritual progress and to do hom age to the man who while heir to all the glories of his heavenly father yet became the most humble that He might exemplify to mankind that Christianity church quartet consisting of Mrs. II. Wheelock, Mrs. Jessie Haselton Aske gard. Paul Bunce and A. W. McNair sang several special numbers at each service.

THE NEW U. S. MARSHAL FOR NORTH DAKOTA K/ A i sift. ir'' 1 STEPHEN JOSEPH DOYLE, The prominent democratic house floor leader in the last few sessions of the State legislature, who has been appointed by President Wilson as U»ited States marshal for the district of North Dakota and confirmed by the sen ate after a hard fight made on him by the state organization said to have been led by Slate Chairman McArthur and, National Committeeman Brueg ger. NEW YORK LETTER To The Forum: The late Willis C. Boyce, one of the best insurance men of the Dakotas, had a humorous way of greeting news, ostensibly of bad omen. When greeted by a brother in surance solicitor with, "Say, Boyce, did you know that no account, trifling insurance company, with home office in Iowa, has been given license to work in this state?" he would seri ously reply: "Good. Let "em come. The more the merrier." His philoso phy, which proved to be a good work ing one, too, was that for his busi ness a plethora of rivals was to be preferred to monopoly and stagnation, Bold and by inconsequential rivals would ulti mately benefit tho staunch concerns, the best of which he represented. It is to be presumed the ladies of the Anti-suffrage league have never taken a psychological review of their posi tion or it is hardly possible that they would work so ardently for equal suffrage. In the good old days of Susan B. Anthony (of blessed mem ory!) "ladies" didn't discuss suffrage. The subject was left to the province of freaks—at least, so they were nam ed—but real "ladies" allowed the mat ter to fail in that state made famous by President Cleveland—"innocuous desuetude." As long as suffrage stay ed there, it was doomed. But suf frage discussed becomes an issue, and now anti-suffrage leaders are working in season and out to have the sub ject discussed. In a cause So emi nently just discussion of antagonist as well as protagonist is progress and suffrage women know it and are slyly laughing in their sleevwt, putting up rnock flght occasionally that the good work may go on. But the busy bees! They* are an -''J .! iik#-'' V inadequate comparison for the suf frage workers here in New York. If work waa the test for a voter, the women of the suffrage societies would he entitled to a multiple vote, as ob tains in some parts of Europe. No day in the week but what you may help by your presence at some suffrage function. Last week the New York City forces held a grand cosmopolitan fete for three days at the Seventy first regiment armory, Thirty-fourth street and Park avenue. When you wandered into the huge hall, your first greeting came from the official pro gram placed in your hand, whereon a twentieth century woman (who any one would say was pretty, wise and witty—no freak that!) with arm up lifted, was represented at singing: "All hail to thee, who e'er thou art. If friend we greet thee hand and heart If stranger, such no longer be If foe, our lovo shall conquer thee.'* Then you began your tour and amid the booths, representing the occidental and oriental sides of woman's life. As you noted the decorations carried out so true to type, you pondered on the amount of work that had be»n done here. If there is a suspicion of lazi ness in your make up, the. arranging, planning of such a show as this would not appeal to you for as work and prevision it is Ossa piled on Pelion. A list of patronesses of the fete is in dicative of the all-embracing cosmo politan status of suffrage. Repre sentatives of science, schools, arts, crafts, stage, social service, business, leisure, labor, Irish, English, French, Italian, Scandinavian—all there and then some. Many of the booths were in charge of prominent society women and the pure food friends much to the front, a quarter constituting you a member of the Pure Food alliance. The college people seemed especially active. But of even greater. interest to North Dakotans was the campaign rally under the auspices of the Na tional American Woman Suffrage as sociation, held ih Carnegie hall, Mon- We want to supply you with your Spring Wrap and solicit your inspection.

The rally united the talent of Chicago, New York and Boston in the aid of tho states now in the whirl of campaigns and the addresses of Dr. Anna How ard Shaw, Mrs. Carrio Chapman Catt, Mrs. Stanley McCormick, Mrs. Harriet Laidlaw, J. L. Laidlaw and Mrs. Me dili McCormick justified the praiso that has been commonly bestowed upon these well known workers and speakers but to tho North Dakotans in the audience tho interest centered about Mrs. Alary Ware Dennett and a real Fargo boy. On tho huge stage of Carnegie hall beamed (per stere opticon) the farms, the fields of North Dakota, the streets of Fargo, tho cheerful smile of Dr. Darrow, Mrs. Darrow. Mrs. Weible, Mrs. Ernest Wright, the Darrow boys, Mrs. Ami don. Mrs. Bo]ley and Mrs. Hildreth. while a running comment by Mrs. Dennett mado the audicnce acquaint ed with what good people these were that upheld the suffrage banner in North Dakota. The Darrows figured as tho typical suffrage family—each, and all—everyone interested and work ing. The big word in suit rage is work. Mrs. Wright was the sweet singer for the cause, and so on until she reached the proud mother, whoso son was our next speaker. In intro ducing Melvin Davis Hildreth (o the audicnce, Dr. Shaw touched upon Mr. Hildreth's successful efforts in cam paigning in New York last fall for our reform mayor and expressed the hope that his summer vacation would be spent in his home state campaign ing for suffrage. His speech wan short, fluent, but well rounded out ami given in superb voice. The older speakers might well envy him his ftne delivery and the audience's delight In the clear enunciation, and measured pace with which he spoke. From tho circumscribed confines of Fargo col lege chapel to the wide stage, and generous auditorium of Carnegie halt in the second largest city in the world seems a far cry—but it can bo done. Everyone who succeeds by earnest ef fort blazes the way—Fargo college send on some more, New York needs them. The rally was successful in raisingr over $1,000 for the cause all they asked—and one-half of this is to as sist the states now conducting cam paigns.
