The Rev. -ilhur F. Crafts, Ph. D., of
New York -it .occupied the pulpit at the
Tirst Presbyierian Church last evenin;.
In the pulpit with Dr. Cralts wore the
Rev. Dr. Byion Sunderland, on his right,
and dhc Rev. -Dr. Talmag- on his lert.
His subject wai the "Kinship or Christ, '
and "ils "text wis rroiu Matthew, -i,2;
"Where is he that Is born king."
Dr. Sunderland, in presenting Dr. Crafts
to the cotigreeatioii, referred to him as he
champion of reforn., one who was en
deavoring to do all in his power Tor the
uplirtun of luiihariity.
In hi-opening remarks Dr. Crafts spoke
particularly ol three bills now pending be
fore Congress, the enactment of which
the residents, of the District are directly
interested in. The bills referred to are
the Sunday ob-ervance law, the Brodench
bill, to raise theagft of protection for
girls in the Distiift to eighteen years,
and the- Uhlettaidll to brak up divorce
colonies in the Territories.

CHRIST NO AFTERTHOUGHT
Says Bishop Cranston, at Metropol
Argues TImt God limit
"World Knowing Eli-. Plan
Rev. Bishop EarlCranston.D.U.. preached
the xermon ar the Metropolitan M. E.
Church yesterday. President McKinley
was present at the service.
Bishop Cranston took for his text the
verse from Genesis: "God saw all that
He had made, and It was 'ery good'
He said that God did not need to con
vince himself that His -work had been
perfect, and that these words were put
into the heart of the inttplred writer for
'They mean that we are to know that
from the beginning God kn-; w what he was
building, and built with tho -whole plan of
the world's history before Him, and kno-v-ing
that the whole plan Is perfect,' aaid
He said that It was necessary to per
fect man that he have rrcedom of will.
Some men called this the fatal gift. x It
was the glorious gift.
Bishop Cranston continued: "Here we
are In the presence of the chamber or
mystery, the reason or the presence of
evil. It Is unthinkable that the ominlsceat
should learn by evl e.-ience. II Is blaspLcity
to think of the Almighty as an adventurer
in his creation. The plan and construc
tion of a niechanim determine its us. The
type is ti.ed by the design. God can have
no richt to ask of man anything that he
did not put into the plans and specifica
tions of ids being.
"God made man and placed him in
dominion. He made him to love, grow,
aspire, have dominion and worship. Man
in the beginning must have been made
Hilly equipped for his high destiny.
"The fall of man was no surprise to God.
The advent of the Son of God was no
afterthought. From the beginning He
measured the limit of the possibility of
the power of evil, and of the ruin to be
wrought by sin. He compassed the ut
most of the power of the wicked one.
"God's lew is c&ristitutional law, not
statutory- -Hi, plan is not a patchwork
design. Redemption was the reserve pil
lar of this design. Man mu-t know evil,
and thtough God'o abundant means of
grace conquer it." '1

The sermon of Dr. Talmagu.at the First
rresbyttrwn Church jesterday morning,
was In the iiaLuie of a Christmas dis
cours;, his subject being ''Christ, the
Boy," and was based upon the text from
Luke, xi,40; "And the child grew and
.waxed strong in spirit, filled with -niridoni:
and the face of God was upon him."
Concerning what 1 minded the boyhood
of Christ, the preacher said, we have

leries or Canvas and scripture, but pen
and pencil and chisel have withdrew ex

as accural; ::u idea of what Christ -v-i.t as
a iwy as of what Chri-o. wa. as a man.
"First, we have the Eihlc account of
His hojhood- Then -we ha-ve the' pro

thirty jeart, of age. We have wside-1
an uninspiied hook, that was for the lirst

ami whicl. gives a prolonged account of
"The S( -called apotrvphal Gospel, in
which the boy haul or Christ is dwelt
upon, 1 do not believe to be divinely
inspired, and jet it may preent r.'uth

represents the boy Christ as performing
miracles, Sutne havt overthrown that whole
apocryidin bk. But -what right have
uu to saj that Christ did not psr'ortn
miracles at ten ears -if age, as well as
at thirtj? I!- was in boyhood as rer

"while a lad He iixn-t have had the po.vvr

manhood. Christ turned water into wme,
that was -said to be the beginning of

wah the beginning ol that serie- of in.ni
huod ir iracles.
'In a vorii, I think that the New Testa

Christ reanimated the dead again and again
without going where they were or even ice
"Frou. the naturalness, the sipiplicity

know that He had been a boy of the fields
and had bathed in the streams and heard
the ni-rhtiiigale's call, and broken through
the rioweiy hedge and looked out of the
embrasures of the fortressr and drank
from the wells and ehaed the butter

carpenter's Lraoe by His father, Joseph
"His haiumci pounding, His saw vacillat

Then said the preacher; "I show jou .1
more marvelous scene Christ, the smooth
browed lad, among the long -bear led,
white-haired, high-foreheaded ecclesiis.

Following other events recorded in the
apocrypla. the preacher aked it t'uy
were more wonderful than -.events recorded
in the New Te--tament.
"K Christ were divine was He not abie
attenor twelve years to descriln; the huunn
system as welt as though He had been
fifty yeais standing at an operating 'aide
or in a dissecting room? In other words,
while I do not believe that any part
of the se-called apocryphal New Testa

true, just as I believe a thousand bo iks,
none of which is divinely inspired."

referred to the fact that when, as .1

New Church Enterprise.

soiis in Xlis Sermons.
Bishop S&tterlee preached a .sermon In
keeping with the thoughts of the Christ
mas season, at St. Thomas's Episcopal
Church, yesterday morning. Preparatory
to his sermon proper he made a few ie
marks relative to the construction of the
handsome new edifice of the congre-ion
which has been under way for he past
few years. He said that he was iiruck
with the faith shown by the parish n the
building ol the new structure. The mem
bers should look above themselves, and
their weaknesses, and faith in God would
overcome eveiy obstacle In the cud, said
Bishop Satteriee's sermon was based c.n
the text, St. Luke, ii:0; "And o, the
angel of the Lord tame upon them."' Be
said that it was a wonderrul thing how
the festival or Christmas had been pro
longed throughout the ages Christmas, ho
said, had coiiip and gone, hut -JhrStmas-tide

shined with brighter radiance. To the
outside world, Christmas had come ai.d

"Why is Christmas the happiest day 111
the year, and growing moie and more so?"
asked the divine. 'Because it belongs to
us, and because His presence seems nearer
to the Christian than any material pis
ence. Any other person's birthday is
outside of us, because their person ility
is outside of jis, but Christ's per-0.11.1ty
Is overshadowing, and we are drawn to
How passing stiange," continued HishoP
Sattcrlee, "the beginnings of Chnstritilty
weie! How many people of Judea were
looking out for the coming of the Messiah?
Pause and think whether the favofd o&es
were those to yhoni the glad tidings were
sent. 'Zacliariab, Elizabeth, Joseph, and
Mary, to whom the angel announced the
virgin- birth rpf Christ. They were the
first to know of the coming or Christ,
and when the king of kings came to the
earth, He squsht to move among those
who loved thLoid.
"There-is oneicharacter still which shines
out like a spark, in those who gathered
around the manger at Bethlehem. The
fear of the Lord was particularly mani
fest in that time. The highest effort of
every Christian life is always to do the
will of God. Men are unwilling to do
God's will because they are self-willed.
What is seir-wlll? It is siu. What is sin?
Sin is transgression of the law in the old
version, and the revised version we read,
'Sin Is lawlessness.' It's setting up human
will against the will of God. We all
recognire our own imperfections in doing
God's work. The spirit of seir-rising in
our inmost souls against God's will makes
us afraid oC God's will, and that which
seems most wrong is accepted as right. Wo
surrendei self unconditionally to God.
The fear of the Lord, ever abject and irra
tional, is this beginning of it! The rirst
step is to know and to realize. The
dread of God is a signal that the will or
God has entered the soul.
"If we fear to do the will of God, we
fear iroie and more to do our own will.
Much as we fear God's will we rear hMH

Dr. Chappell Takes This View of

Dean of tire Theological Scho-l
Tofcio Treadle rtt Fifteenth.
Street M. E. Church.
Rev. E. Chappell, dean of the School
of Theology at Tokio, Japan, last night
occupied the pulpit of the Fifteenth Street
Meth'.dist Episcopal Church, lie took his
text from the second chapter of the epistle
to the Ephesians: "At that time they were
aliens Horn Christ," and drew a parallel
between Ephesus and Tokio.
In Epht-sus- there were Tour classes of
people: those who were idolaters, those
who disilained all religions, Jews, aad a
In Ephesus today is desolation and ruin.
The same conditions that existed in tint 1
ancient city prevailed in the great citj- j
of Tokio todav. There was no central
shrine. Japar. was a country or shrines.
They stood in gardens, on the hilltops, .md 1
by the roadsides. The great mass of the
peopie were concent 10 oner up pri.. -n
to divers deities, and had no true e De
ception of the everlasting life. "What a
privilege it is." said the missionary, "to
point out the truth to these people!"
He told of the philosophers in Japn,
who looked down on all religions and
