Great God, we come with grateful hearts,
To offer up our thanks to Thee;
For all Ihy mercies, all Thy care
, Of us, Thy children, on the sea.
Oh! bear us safely to the shore;
With one united voice we pray;
To Thee we look Thee we adore
To Thee our heartfelt homage pay.
"Watch' o'er us evermore, and guide
Our footbteps wheresoe'er we be;
In storm, or sunMiine, oh! abide
With us. Thy children, on the sea.
Then shall we feci no dread alarm;
Our souls will rest in peace on Thee;
Our trust sincere: aJe from nil harm;
Behold Thy children on the sea.
.After the bermon the 6ecortu hymn was
ung to original mubic. It runs' th us:
Father of Light and Love,
High on Thy throne above,
Give us Thine ear.
All weak and powerless, we,
Thyciuldren on the sea.
Would turn our thoughts to Thee,
And nothing fear.
O God, in Thee we trust;
On Jesus" bosom must
Our safety bo;
Then would we ever rest
Our heads upon His breast
The haven e'er the best.
On land or sea
Oh, take us safe to shore;
Thy guidance wc Implore
From day to day;
To Thee our thnnks we bring;
Give us oil hearts to sing
The praises of our King
His will obey. 3"

Charles Cnrter Refused to Pay Fare
and Then Became Violent.
Charles Carter, alias "Colonel," a burly
young negro, was arrested jesterday aft
ernoon by Policeman Kramer and Special
Officer Horsey for disorderly conduct in a
street car at the corner of Fourteenth and
G streets. Carter refused to pay his fare
and was ordered to get off, but refused.
When Special Officer Dorsey attempted
to eject him Carter assaulted him with his
fist and created a lively scene In the car.
Several ladies were badly frightened and
attempted to Jump off while the car was in
When Policeman Kramer came to the
officer'sassistanccCarterdrew a knife and
made a desperate lunge at his captor, but
fortunately was prevented from doing him

The Weulthy Sausage Manufacturer
Fighting for His Life.
Chicago, May 22 Adolph L Luctgort,
the wealthy sausage manufacturer,
was brought into court today for a pre
liminary hearing, on the charge of .nur
dering his wife, Louise.
The hearing begun with a protest by
the defendant's counsel, who alleged that
no corpse had been produced as evidence
that a murder had been committed. Justice
Kerbteu overruled the motion to dlschaigc
the accused, and allowed a pieliruinary
hearing to proceed on the theory that tie
corpse, or portions of it, would be pro
duced The State also scored a point In
the practical deduction of the btory that
Mrs. Luetgert had been seen alive at
Kenosha, Wis. The defense gained one
point in the court proceedings and one on
the outside. Dietrich lickner, brother of
the mibsing woman, and a leadingwltness
for the prosecution, failed to identify the
rings found in the vat.
August Rlchmann, a former employe of
Luetgert, gave a plausible explanation of
the character of the fluid in the vats, the
finding of bones and flesh, and or Luet
gcrt's alleged prebence in the basement
on the night of May 1.
The pioccedlngs abounded in wrangles
between counsel Sensations were con
stantly threatened, but nothing resnled.
The hearing was adjourned until Monday.
