Bishop Donahue Offi ciated, nnd the Exercises Were Attended by a Large Crowd, | Including Nearly All the Catholic Men’s Societies in the City—The Remarks of Bishop Donahue. The laying of the corner stone of the new St. Mary's parochial school, yesterday, was a notable event in local Catholic circles. The ceremonies were successfully carried out and were wit nessed by several thousand people, in cluding all the local Catholic societies. Among the societies present were the Parke, Mullen and Benwood divisions of the A. O. H., the Knights of St. George. St. Alphonsus Society, Young Men’s Sodality of St. Alphonsus con gregation. the St. Ladilas Polish So ciety of the Church of the Immaculate Conception and the Young Men's So dality of the same church. The up-town organizations marched down, headed by the Grand Opera House band, while the South Wheeling and Benwood societies had the Lib erty band. Immediately after the so cieties had arrived, the procession of the Bishop and the members of the clergy started from the episcopal resi dence. After Bishop Donahue had blessed the corner stone it was moved into place, a box containing copies or | the Wheeling daily papers, Church Calendar, list of names of national and State officers and Mayor of the city, coins of various denominations, hav ing been previously put in a receptacle in the stone. The foundation of the school building has been completed, and also the walls on each side of the hall-way have been erected to the height of one story. A temporary platform was laid across these walls, on which stood the clergymen, stand ard bearers, altar boys and others. Dressed in his gorgeous clerical robes. Bishop Donahue delivered a I splendid address from this platform to j the several thousand people gathered around and below. The Bishop s ad dress was exceedingly forceful and at times elicited applause. The Right Rev. Bishop spoke in part as follows: We are assembled here this after noon, dear friends, to participate in a ceremony second only in importance to the dedication of a house of worship to Almighty God—the laying of the corner stone of a school devoted to the great cause of Christian education. In deed the proximity of this building to the Immaculate Conception Church suggests the closeness of the lelation i between the education of the young and the worship of God. 1 he ob ject of a Christian school is a contin uation of the church s work, or wuhoi i a novitiate for that work. In both the j worship of the Supreme Being is the > uppermost thought, the principle of all life and activity. We are gathered here to-day to lay this corner stone, not in any spirit of hostility to our fellow citizens, hut in obedience to the dictates of our own consciences. It is a basic principle of our holy faith that all education de serving the name must be founded on religion. It is not for me to decry or . attempt to depreciate the schools of this region. I am one of the first to admit their excellence as tar as the> pretend to go. Neither shall I attempt to belittle the public school teachers of this city of ours. I am personally ac quainted with some of them, and know them to be devoted to their work. Our sole objection is to the system, and this even is a negative objection, which here we shall endeavor to obviate. In this fair building religion will be the basis as surely as these solid granite blocks will constitute the. stable and lasting foundation of the material building. Here devoted Sisters, bound for life to the teachers’s self sacrifice, and not till some one shall seek their hands in marriage, will instruct the little ones of this parish in the truths of tlicit hole faith. They will educate the little ones in the full, and broad, and literal, and only logical sense of that word by drawing out and perfecting their moral as well as their intellectual beings. They have given their whole lives to j the work: and however meanly some, of my auditors may think of them this is known perfectly by those acquainted with their lives and aims. This ceremony may lie regarded by, some unthinking and foolish men as a constructive act of treason to the re public. Well, we cannot help that: you may do as you please, but 1 am not one of those in the habit of apologiz ing for my own existence and begging toleration and indulgence for my relig ious views. I only know that I and all those with me are citizens of this re public. entitled to life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and that we have as good a right to stand here as any other citizen of whatever rank or persuasion between the shores of the Atlantic and Pacific. Neither do we flount our patriotism before the eyes of our fellow citizens, or like the lady i.i the play, “protest too much." nor do we make, or sopk to make, of the stars and stripes an advertising medi um or an emblem of narrowness or prescription. We love them so well that we are rejoiced that others love them too. and in the proper time in some dark hour or crisis of our coun try’s history we shall in the future be found rallying round them as we have in the past, there to fight, to bleed, and if need be, die in their defense. Mean while we decline to be considered as here on sufferance. It was a member of our holy faith, four hundred years ago. who sailing unknown seas, dis covered this fair land, and nothing that since has happened has tended to weaken or cast a cloud upon our right, but rather the reverse. For us, there- j fore, it is as unnecessary to pretest and whine about our loyalty as it is for an honest man to put a placard on his hat while going through the ^public streets informing passers-by that he is honest. Only let the dark hour, the hour of need, come to this glorious re- | public and these assembled here and j those to be educated here, will show i without prating what a loyal citizen is! Every brick laid, or to be laid, in this school building is a proof of conscience and of sacrifice! Every joist and win dow frame is eloquent of sacrifice and the spirit of sacrifice. The Catholics of this district first pay into the com mon fund for the general purposes of education, and go down into their pock ets once again to secure the kind of education which their conscience tells them is the best for their children! Your devoted and beloved pastor has brought this event of to-day about by sacrifice of effort, and zeal, and money. You know what he is to you without my enlarging upon that topic. This school will be built and maintained by private contributions, every dollar of which represents the spirit of sacrifice and the ennobling strength of a right conscience. The lives of the teaching body here are lives of constant sacri fice. They will give up everything that life holds dear in the great cause of enlightening others unto justifica tion. It may be objected by some tnai you can have too much religion in the schools, and that the proper instrument for religious training is the Sunday school, with its half hour or more of purely religious instruction. That is exactly the point of departure between ourselves and our brethren who differ from us. What! Treat religion, man’s highest and noblest interest as we treat our Sunday clothes? Array our selves in them for one brief day and then consign them to the oblivion of the wardrobe or the trunk! Who ever heard of bringing a beautiful flower to perfection by exposing it to the action cf the sun for half an hour once a week? Or of developing a child into a stalwart man by giving it one good meal on Sunday? No. my friends, be lieve me there must be an atmosphere of religion in which to breathe all the hours of all the week in order to pro duce stalwart Christians, i he child to grow to the perfect man must he saturated with the principles of the gospel, the maxims of Jesus Christ, the examples of the saints, the beauty of holiness, the fleeting nature of this poor world and the eternity to come. These things are of the essence of true Christian training. Without them there is no real education, but they can co-exist with, or rather tend to pro duce, excellence of Intellectual train ing. If those principles were instilled in to the hearts of all our little ones and youths, what a transformation would they not produce! Then we should have less of the mad race after wealth _’ess of the discontent of the lowly and the poor. Our newspapers would not he annals of dark crimes, our lit erature saturated with filth. Then would the spirit of Christ he abroad in the land, and this fair republic would not hold such numbers of highly intel lectual scoundrels. The heart would count for something and the brain would not monopolize the efforts of teachers of youth. Yes. my friends, the old ways and ideas are true, and have not only produced the greatest heroes, but developed the mightiest in tellects of all time. irivnlcinp the benediction of heaven upon the new school, its teachers and its pupils. He hoped for the spirit of harmony and toleration among all classes of citizens, even in the midst of radical differences as to religious belief, which difference? have never been found to be removed by acrimonious contro versy. “We should all.” he exclaimed, “recognize the brotherhood of Christ and the fatherhood of God. and with one accord uphold the purity of home, the elevation of the standard of morals and devotion to our country and our God.” The Mullen Division of t.ie A 0 h. had a beautiful new American banner which the Bish op intended to bless, but as the color bearer was not present at the specified moment this interesting ceremony was deferred. The clergymen from out of town present were Fathers McMenl mcn. of Benwood: Meigand, of Bridge port, and Paquin. of Elm Grove. FEAST OK sll ABOUTII. IVntecost Sunday Fittingly Observed at the Synneogne. There was a very large congregation at the Synagogue, yesterday, on the oc casion of the Feast of Shabuoth, (Pen tecost). when the confirmations took place. ’ Many gentiles were among those present, and the services were very interesting. The programme was as follows: choir Trio "Ibnr Our Prayer.-...Abbot Regular Servic ol the Shabuoth Continual..1< Pronounce the lien-diction ovi-r the Torah. Choir. Soprano Solo.

Conclusion Prayer. Choir, Quartette—"Hear Us O Father” Buinhach Presentation of Confirmation Certificates by t.1. President "t‘ the Congregatldn, Mr. Samuel Kraft. Benediction. The interior of the Synagogue was a scene of beauty, and the discourse of Rabbi Bonheim was a most powerful and convincing one. No more eloquent pulpit effort has ever been heard in this city. There was a special choir, numbering, among others, Mrs. Rihel daffer and Mrs. Margaret Harvey, un der the direction of Prof. Schofield, with Mrs. Cora Watson Hamilton as organist. Rabbi Bonnheim took for his text Exodus xix., 6: "He shall be unto me a kingdom of Priests and the holy nation,” and upon this he based an exceptionally strong and eloquent ser mon. Among other ideas advanced, he said: “If Israel wishes to fulfill its mis sion as a kingdom of priests, it must do so by correct deeds and actions and by dealings with their fellow men, and if this Confirmation feast is to have a lasting effect in the minds and hearts of the children, depends upon the parents, upon the congregation, and upon the good example of the whole congregation. If we confirm our children and allow them to take upon themselves solemn vows, and ex pect them to remain steadfast in ti e tents of religion, the parents, and the congregation and the trustees of the congregation must aid them, and by precept and example afford a stand ard of right living and right doing. Otherwise, these sanctifying vows be come rather a desecration, and will ne of no avail. * * * You may say that Judaism contains a great many ceremonies, but Judaism is not rabbin ism. The essence c.in he given in a few words, “Do unto others as you would wish others to do unto you,” and love your fellowmen as yourself. Carry this out, and the word 'Jew,' sometimes used as a word of reproach, will become a compliment and will mean right living, a regard for the solemn truths of religion, and justice from man to mau." The part taken in the programme by the children was altogether creditable, and the services as a whole were very interesting. PENTECOST SUNDAY Ohsorvod in a Fitting Manner in St. Pentecost Sunday was observed yes terday in St. Alphonsus church, and large congregations were the rule dur ing the day. At 10 a. m. solemn high mass was celebrated. The celebrant was the Rev. Father Anastasias- dea con. Rev. Father Mark; suj-deason. Rev. Father Clement. The sermon was preached by the Rev.

Sunday forenoon was a “reception I day” at the North Street M. E. church. The music was appropriate to the oc • casion. The pastor, Rev. C. B Gra ham. delivered a charge to the new members on “Christian manhood," giving the defensive position of the Christian, his steadfast character and his aggressive attitude, as essential to perfect Christian manhood. Twelve adults bowed at the altar, which had been profusely adorned by the King's Daughters of the church, and received baptism. A circle of thirty-eight then took upon themselves the covenants of the church and received a grand welcome. It was a scene of great joy and one that will linger in the walls of memory during the entire lives of many. Judge and Mrs. McWhorter took an active part in the services, and their presence was enjoyed. GOING TO DETROIT.
