Adams, Calhoun, Clay, George Bancroft, Edward Everett Hale on Roster, BELL IN CHURCH STEEPLE WAS CAST BY PAUL REVERE. All Souls' Church, iu Wash ington, of which Mr, Taft is a momber, was ostabhshod in 1812 aud has occupied its present home at Fourteenth and L. StreetB, Northwest, since 1877, The structure is not imposing, but roomy and comfortable and covered heavily with clinging ivy, aud has a restful appearance in the midst of the bustle of the city. From its steeple, in brazon tones, a bell cast by Paul Re verehe of tho "midnight ride" fame in his New Eugland foun dry, summons the people to worship, just as in earlier days it sounded the fire alarm. The membership roll of the church has contained the names of many well known persons. jj rt, n in. ..i. j V-Si uutiu j. vjumuuu whh an itbtonu ant there, as were also Daniel Weba.er, John Quincy Adams,1 Justice Morrill, John D. LongwL. and George Bancroft, the his torian, Rear-Admiral Evans is now a member,' as is tho Rev Dr. Edward Everett Hale, who frequently occupies the pulpit. Among its membership aro per sons who were previously Metho dists, Baptists, Roman Catholics, Presbyterians, etc. Dr. Pierce, in this counection. exnlainad that'the church would no mor$ - -I usuun. ui luvjuiwuK iuiu iuu re ligion of an applicant for mem bership than it would busy itself with his political views. The church stood for freedom and tho doiug of good things in a practical manner, he said. It maintains, for instance, a visit ing nurse, paying all expenses, being the ouly church of any de nomination in Washington which does this. As to the pastor of this church, Rev. Ulysses S. G. Pierce, he is .a native of Providence, R. I., a young man who was roared a Baptist. Ho went to school as a boy in Boston and took a post graduate course at Harvard. He was called to All Souls' eight years ago, aud since then has bo come one of the best known pastors in the city. Mr. Taft had been in Washing ton a very short time when his name was added to tho members' list of All Soul's Church, and since that time ho has been u regular attendant. Mrs. Taft occasionally accompanies him to worship there, but her own church is St. John's Episcopal "the church of tho Presidents" opposito Lafayetto Square, which Mrs. Roosovelt also attonds. Mr. Taft is a pretty active member of All Souls', and iu February, 1000, on tho occasion of tho cen teuary of Joseph Priestly, tho eminent Unitarian chemist, he delivered an address. For tho benefit of the curious it may bo said that tho creed of tho Unitarian church is summed up in in Article II of the Con stitution, which says: The church deolaros itself to bo in affiliation with the body of liberal Christians organized as 'The American Uuitarian As sociation,' aud subscribes to the following declaration of princi pies embodied in the constitution adopted by the National Confer ence of Unitarian aud Other Christian Churches in 1801: "Tlieso churches accept the religion of Jesua, holding in ac cordance with Hi8 teaching that practical religion is summed qp in lovo to God and love to man , ....aud wo invite to our w.ork iug fellowship any who. wluK- .differing from ua. in-buhef, ur m uuuriu uympuiuy wjm our spirit and onr pracioul aiwe," $1 , rri ij;rjrtE:?fk wl petfWfif'- Govunntj.nnrVtC 0.
