night, .vas most onturuging to the ot

Mr Grunt L-t., the nexvly elected presi

The proceedings were preceded by tlie
ubiwl dex'olioual exercises, after which Re
ports of the several committees were read.
The lookout cotnii'lttee for the year end
ing September 1. 1897. reported-
There were five new EocMles added
Ui the Union during; their term of
office, nimely: The Third Christian So

their e.vecullvt committee having reported
tlwUalUiough many of their membershave
left the city oa account of expiration ot
enllstiwnt, Changs ot station and for other
reaso.li-. the Membership has increased
fiom sisLcen to twonty-four.
The rejwrt of the missionary committee,
which was next rend, stated that as ti
result of the committee's work nearly all
of the societies have missionary com
mittees. Of tho eighty-six societies in
the union, lorty-four hnve adopted the
2-ceuts-a-week plan for raising money for
missions; nine s-oelelies follow some other
plan; elcon have not adopted any plan
of regular giving; and twenty-two have
not reported on this subjett. There are
probably sixty societies that have adopted
some plan of systematic-giving.
The swJ f Jtlronship committee reported,
among other things, tt-at the work of the
reform bureau before Congress, under the
dtrccikm of Rev. "Wilbur F. Crafts, appealed
to therommittee asrommendablcaaditbad

and expedient. The report continues. "It
is to be regretted that object so worthy
ab these and bo necessary for the welfare
of the people should have met with so
small a degree of success or have failed
so miserably. Several measures failed,
we were told, because of a lack of sup
port fmi'i the moral agencies or the city.
In order that such supiwrc might be :ia
suied in the future, we have taken the
initiatory steps looking to the formation
or a simple organization of the limusteia
ot V.'aanington for this purpose. The in
t.Tost they have manifested in the project
is gratifying, and we believe the work
ot the con.miUee for the coming year will
be greatly benefited by Mich an organiza

A new feature of the work this year has
been tle two social gatherings, one given
by the executive committee to the officers
of the societies and the other in connection
with the 'an Francico echo meeting.
You hiv' heard of the work of tlie union
committees Trom their chairmen, so that I
will not repeat here what they have said
so much better themselves.
'The eoasMtutinn of the union .md the
by-laws of the executive committee have
both been amended in very important par

'The by laws have been amended so as

'The union has had for its headquarters
a room in the Y. M. C. A. building, and
there the secretary and his aistanc have
kept regular office hours twice a week.

that the figures for additions to the

Thn Marine Band concert at the While
Houe thlb afternoon will be devoted eu
tirely to the production or music written
by Waanlngtoniaus. It will be a field day
for the local musicians, and the interest
that has been manifested at the rehearsals
duTing the past week has augured exceed
ingly well for the success of the under
taking. Tnc concert that will be given today
originated in the mind of Prof. Fanclulll,
the pont'lar leader or the famous band. He
not only thought that a local proirram
would be a novelty in the line of Satur
day afternoon concerts, but he knew that
such a concert would enable American
comoo.sers residing at the nation's capital
to show what they can do.
Fanclulll as a thorough musician has
ever been willing to do what he can to
promote his art, and several weeke ago
lit extended an invitation tolocal composers
to send in their compositions. He does
not now regret that he did so for he has
received a large number of compositions,
many or which, he says, show a knowledge
or melody and orchestration far ubovo
Pnr. Fanclulli isliighly pleased with the
coir.poMtions he has received. The se

that show clever originality. The concert

And bore her soul away.
