The pulpit of the Eastern Presbyterian Church wnsoccupiedjesterday by thepastor, Rtv. Thomas Cbalmers Ea6ton, D. D. He took as his theme for the evening discounse, "The Christian's Race." Among other things Dr. Easton eaid: The figure employed is excellent. The racing idea applied to the Christian's life carries us in imagination back to the ancient days when the Olympic games were a prominent feature in the institutions of the then known world. Unlike other races where only one can be victor, in the Christian race every one who touches the goal receives the laurel crown. The starting point is conversion and until wc touch the golden gate we are speeding along tho course. The prize is eternal life in heaven, the canopy of the saints and joy forcvermore. The first thought suggested by my theme is the necessity of always being in training, rigid and seiere. Many break down from lack of training and a greater number are drawn aside from the pursuit of the palm by distracting influences. From this wo must learn to keep holy the body and to preserve it intact as a piece of God's handi work should be kept. The aim of the Oljmpic sprinter was to secure the bubble reputation, and, if successful, Tiis name was chanted, he was brought in honor to his native citj through a break in the wall md the laurel wreath placed upon his brow. All of this is earthly and fleeting. It nu6t of necessity pass away with the march of time, but the Christian runner competes for a seat m the heavenly home and never djing fame. In athletic sports nothing Is worn that wjll impede the use of the limbs The Christian should not tarry any weight of sin, but as free as the morning lot him fly oier the course. You cannot fail Jf you run as the Master directs in His blessed word. You will be sure to gain the toal at last and the crown will be placed on jourboadbytbeplercedhandot theSaviour.

Eianiple4 This Century Furnishes of Cruelty to Dogs and Birds Nn, poh'on Compared TJ nfuA orably. The humanitarians. antl-viisoctlonlsts, and, in fact, almost all of the friends of dumb animals in the District, Terc present yesterday morning at the Vermont Avenue Christian Church to hear tha Rev. r. D. Fotvcj, preach on "God's Glory in the Beastsof the Field." Tills is a subject dear to the heart of the able pastor, and he waxed more elo quent than usual. Tho Fermon was an nounced to be for the benefit of the Hu mane Society of the city. He said in part: "Could tberc be an j thing more cruel, shameful or unjust than Uie ill-treatment of the noble horse or the affectionate dog, such as is been in the streets of our elty every daj? It was once feared in a Euro pean city that all of the dogs in the vicinity would go mad, and tuedreadedhjdrophobiu. become broadcast among the citizens. By the enactment of an ordinance the citizens were empowered to carry large pointed sticks with which they were to impale every dog thoy met. "On the banks of the Danube a peasant threw this weapon at a dog, but with pooraim.and the heavy wooden spear went Into the water. The animal, true to Its training and iustinct, plunged in, brought it back and laid it at the man's feet. EVEN IN OUR CENTURY. "Theinhuman monster immediate! j seized it and dashed out the poor creature's brains. This was even in our eentury. "What would the Athenians luwe done with this man, when they disgraced and imprisoned one of their magistrates who dabtied down a little bird that had sought refuge In hisbosom? "Can any man be cruel to animals who goes out in the fields in, the morning and hears the birds singing sweetly, the cows musically lowing, and a thousand minute creatures chirping in the grass at his feet? One day a lad and his sister while walking in the woods found a nest of joung birds, and In spite of the girl's tears and entreaties, the boy dasiied out the brains of the little feathered beings on the stones. Some jears after that sister sat by her brother's side crjing and prajmg, and every momeut expect ing the coming of the procession which was to lead the joung man forth to the scaffold. He said to the girl: 'Sister, do jou remember the time I killed those joung birds? I think from that hour God deserted me and Iert me to my own In clinations, and if I had spared them I am certain that I would not be to-day a con demned man ' Is it not true ol overy man standing in the presence of his God that be have mercy on all dumb animals ? """" There was a great discussion in the six teenth century about a certain man who was leading a pig by a rope as to whether the leading or the led animal was the hog. I do not know to what conclusion they ar rived, but I am certain to-day that they are animals full of bristlps which exhibit more human traits than some men and that some animals w 1th breeches deserve the name of tho hog. "Tii" man. Napoleon Bonaparte, who now fills our magazine and shares, with Trilby, the admiration and worship of a host of people, commonly thought to be sane, comes within this category. He was a vile brutal butcher of men. One, who, as a French historian tells us, was pompous when he tried to be proud and vulgar when he tried to be silly. Macauley in comparing Caesar and Napoleon says that Caesar, m one respect was pre-eminently superior to the Corsican in that he was a perfect gentleman. NAPOLEON'S EVIL CAREER. Talleyrand laments that so great a man as Napoleon showed such bad training and evil bringing-up. The great aguostlc and anthropologist, Huxley, in his dissertations upon the Darwinian theory admits that there is a great gulf between man and the lower ani mals. Yet the baser formsofcreation have a eort of consciousness, a sense of right and wrong. They exhibit a certain sense of con trivance and can adopt means to an end, while of their loe, devotion and fidelity we have all seen samples. The elephants in Ceylon are taught to build walls. The horse knows enough to turn to the meeting house on Sunday and to the road which leads to the place of business on the other six days of the week. "When I was a preacher in the country I had a little pony who never failed to stop beforo a church, while a saloon he fairly shunned. The only trouble was that he did not have a sense of discernment of the denomina tions. "Many great philosophers and theologians, even "Wesley himself, have firmly believed in the immortality of the souls of animals. Thousands of the feathered songsters of our forests aro yearly slaughtered to adorn the hats of luxurious women, while dogs, cats and guinea-pigs arc daily made to undergo tortures in comparison with which those of tho Inquisition fall and are as nothing. This is done by human mon sters in tho name of science. Along our Etreet you can see thcnoble beast of burden goaded and driven todeath by heartless human beings, who deserve the name of devils. If jou desire to honor and please your Maker be kind and considerate of the beasts of the field, for in these does God glory." e SICKNESS IS A BLESSING. Rev. Dr. Todd Describes the Mission of Pnin to IHh Consrregntlon. "The Mission of Sickness" was thesubject of "Rev. E. S. Todd's discourse at the Ham line M. E. Church jesterday morning. He spoke from the ninth chapter of John, the first threo verses, saying in part: "One of tho ways in which sickness is made a blessing is that it is a kind of police officer to warn us against doing wrong. It is constantly saying, if you do wrong you will very likely be sick. The restraining Influence of a fear of sickness is great. "In sickness men think of God and eternal things, as Payson once said, men are put on their backs so that they may look up. Sickness furnishes the condition by -which God can show his great power. To keep a man patient in a long sickness is a mir acle of grace. Many have been convinced of the truth of religion by seeing how Chris tians have been kept. "The care of the sick is a great blessing to those who aro well. It makes them patient and sympathetic. The hospitals and homes for the sick help those who main tain them as much as they do the inmates." FEAST OF ST. ALOYSIUS. Imposing: Celebration of the Day nt the Church. The feast of the patron saint was cele brated at St. Alojsius Church yesterday. The church was tastefully decorated and every inch of space was filled at high mas3. The celebrant was Rev. James Becker, of Georgetown College, with Rev. M. J Burns and Rev. F M Council, b)th or St Aloysius, as deacon and sub-deacon, respectfully. The panegyric of the Faint was de livered by Rev. Father Spencer, of the Order of St. Dominic, who eloquently sketched the life and teachings and in fluence of Aloysius. The music was by the full choir under the direction of Mr. James J Nolan. La Hoebe's Kyrie and Gloria and Lelos' Credo, sanctus, BenedictuB and Agnus Dei, were sung. Offertory was Bung by Mesdamei Anna Craig Hills, Kitty Thompson Berry, H. H Mills and Miss Pauline Whitaker. The solo parts were taken by Mrs. Berry, Miss TVhitaker and Mr. M. W. Handlin. He AVus a Department Clerk and Studied Law hut nt Last Entered . tho Ministry. Rev. Arnold S. Yantis, an eloquent joung licentiate of ttie TJnlversalist denomina tion, occupied the pulpit at the Chuich of Our Tather jesterday morning in the ab sence of the pastor, Dr. Rogers It was Mr. Yantis' first regular sermon bince he formally entered the ministry, and at the close ho was warmly congratulated by the congregation. The speaker selected as the basis for his discourse tho Incident noted in the fourth chapter of St. Mark's Gospel when the Savior was awakened from his slum bers by Ids frightened disciples to quiet the stotm that had arisen at sea, and which threatened their boat with de struction. "This event," lie said, "has been the wonder of theologians and the admiration of the Christian church. It is notable as the only occasion when Christ is mentioned as having slept. Ho was weary with Ills labors, and sought rest in refreshing bleep, exemplifying Ills human nature. "It was for another purpose, however. He b that act allowed that He was tho Master of the seas and could quiet the storming elements. "Jesus slept. The storm raged, and the vessel was filling with water. Tho disciples wondered that He could re main in repose while the great danger threatened. They finally called Him, and He spoke the magic word: 'Peace, be still. " The analogy drawn was between the power exercised oer the raging tempest and Christ's influence, nlwajs exerted, for His people in the midst of life's tempest. Tile words "Pence, be still," he bald, are just as patent now as when they calmed the wata that threatened to enguir His disciples. Mr. Yantis has preached a trial sermon before each of four congregations, one being at Scranton, Pa., and immediately received a call from each. He accepted the last one tendered, from n congrtgation in Miuden, N. Y., and will leave with his wife for that place on "Wednesday to formally assume the duties. He was for several jears employed as a clerk in the Postoffice Department, and afterwards for a time in the Census Office. He studied law and was admitted to the bar, but afterwards, from a benso of duty, reconsidered his choice of a pro fession aud adopted the ministerial calling. AMERICAN BISHOPS SILENT. Denial of the Report That They Have Protested Ajjulnst Stitolll. An eminent Catholic ecclesiastic s.ijs of the recent Rome cable to the London Standard that Cardinal Gibbons had pre sented to the Pope a protestation of the American bishops against tho continuance of Mgr. Satolh's mission in the United States "The American bishops have made no such protest, and tho statement that Car dinal Gibbons or anjone else is itb bearer is an unqualified falsehood. Having an intimate acquaintance with the purposes of the Cardinal's visit to Rome, I can as sure jou it had no reference to any question of really great importance. He had not been in Rome in ten years, and as it is usual to make a decennial visit, the present tme was choisen as op portune. Naturallj being with the Pope for the first time In so many years, the whole range of church affalrsJn America will be gono over, including, no doubt, the success of the Pope's bpecial mission in America. "But this will not be from the standpoint of any protest from the American bishops. Tho time for that hns gone by. Further more, Cardinal Gibbons is known as one of the most politic men in the American hierarchy, and he is the last one to be drawn into a prote&t or other internal dissension. This would be the more true in a matter concerning Mgr. Satolli, which has been show a to be very near to the Pope's heart. "Tho only pending questions of any im portonce are as to the appointment or bishops at San Antonia, Sacramento and Sioux Falls. Tho nominations have been sent to Rome and the appointments are expected daily. Three names ajo under considera tion in each case. "Cardinal Gibbons may be consulted on these and any other pending questions, none of which, however, inoles a considera tion of tho tenure of Mgr. Satolli." CHRISTIAN BROTHERLY LOVE. Rev. Dr. Grnhnni, of St. Mnrk'n "Utters Some Pointed Admonitions. The sermon of Rev. A. II. Graham at St. Mark's Church jesterday morning made no direct reference to the recent dispute over the election of a vestry, but it gave some very pertinent Christian admonition in view of the events in that parish during the past three months. He pointed out the high ideal of Chris tian lo e and fellowship which 6hould mark the intercourse of all bclleversand especially of members of the same church. That ideal he could not himself hope to reach and probably niauj of his hearers would agree that it was difficult of attainment for men and women hindered by the weak nesses of human nature. But borne things at least, all could do. It is possible alwajs to btrive to state facts as they occur, to give our neighbors, even if they differ with ub radically and with some asperity, the benefit of a fair and candid representation of what occurs between us and thegj. This much all are bound to do. None is fit for communion who do less. "Love thinketh no evil." If that plane of living cannot be reached, j'et every one can refuse to tell a lie or to injure his lellowman purposely. It would be well if the church had a fixed code of love, if all would remember that cerj soul has itsownbattlesto fight of whlchothers know nothing; if each would try to forgethimeelf in his brother's or sister's need. But when this is bejond the reach, at least each man and woman who has aught against a brother or sister can go direct to the supposed offender with the griev ance Instead of talking it to others. By telling some one else of it the story may gd through fiftj' minds before it reaches its destination and each one of the fifty may be injured by it. SUFFER AND HE STRONG. Rev. Dr. McKlm Telln How St. Faul Show ed tho "Way. Dr. J. Randolph McKhn preached at Epiphany Church last night from the second chapter of Second Timothy. The words were outlined, he eaid, by Paul wheu lu prison at Rome for the second" time and just before he was togoforthtomartjTdom. They came with comfort and strength for the joung bishop of Ephesus who had been with the great apostle to the Geutiles in eo many parts of the world and so they have come to the Christian world ever since. The lesson shows how Paul labored, how he suffered and how patiently he bore his cross. It puts upon us shame for im patience, for idleness, for neglect of duty and shrinking from the burden of duty. Even In this nineteenth century If a man would be faithful he must endure perse cution. But if we Buffer we 6hall also reign. If we are not faithful, If we practically deny Christ by our false living, by worldliness, by selfishness, by Bin, we can not receive the blessings of his teachings. If a man have not the spirit of Christ he i6 in darkness and sin. Let all ask for grace, for fidelity, for courage, for Etrength to live honestly.and faithfully. A Moderm Demosthenes. She Is Mr. Rumbler such an eloquent man? He He is Indeed. He once persuaded a cable car conductor to ring the bell to stop-Life. Professor Dar.win speaks .about the time in his youth when with perfect health, "mere existence was a blight." How Tew people hao had such an experience. How many people w ho' rpad this cun say that it Ib happiness simply to live. To many life means dreary days and waking nights; drowsy, languid, jired w itb a dis position of the mind to wander. All these belong to the symptoms pr the debilitated person. No wonder Pro Darvv in became one ot the leaders of the thought of the world. Ills nervous and phjslcal powers had quite as much to do with his suc cess. The moral is, regain jour health and nerve vigorif they have been lost. Dr. "Walker is certainly the leading special ist in the treatment of all disorders of the brain and nervous system, diseases or the skin and blood, bexual weakness, and all chronic or long standing troubles affect ing the lungs, throat, heart, stomach, liver, kidnejs, bladder, bowels, or any other organ. Young or middle-aged men Buf fering from the results of their own follies, vices, orexcesses; men about to marry, who are conscious of any impediment or diH qualification to a happy marriage, or those who feel their strength and vigor declining, should consult Dr. "Walker To reach and reclaim such unfortunates has been one of his aims, and be has been the means of restoring hundreds of such cases to health, strength and happiness. He ib constantly receiving flattering tes timonials from grateful patients he has cured, and large files of them can be seen at his ofUce by anjone who desires to in vestigate.

GOOD FEELING PREVAILED Univerpallsts, Unitarians, Jews, In dependent, and Orthodox Churches were Repiesented Delegates Not Yet Prepared for a UnlonLooltlnsr to SurrfMidorofDeiioiiihiuJtionalTeneu. l:' A report from the American Congress of Liberal Religions occupied the attention ot tho People's Church at Tj pographlcal Tem ple jebterdaj morning. It was made by the pastor, Rev. Alexander Kent, who has just returned from tho uifnuJl meeting at Chicago. Hosawsome ten general organiza tions of Univer3allsts, Unitarians, and Jews, with twenty liberol and independent churches and three orthodox churches, were represented in the gathering ot 100 dele gates, -j ' As he had foiesecn, the"" proposed con sideration ot the varipus liberal forces ot America in a formal way'waB not accom plishrd. Good feeling and interchange of the friendliest sentiment prevailed through out, but the sects represented were not prepnred for a closer union that might look to Ufcurrenderoftheirdpnominational tenets. DELEGATES ALL AT SEA. Dr. Kent himself urged the proposition made by Rabbi Hlrsh for a chair of scien tific sociology upon a basis independent of existing economic theories. But the congress was unprepared to act upon this suggestion for definite work. The dele gates were all at sea as to the practical application of the general principles of ethics and religion. They distrusted the nationalist and socialist solutions of the industrial problem. This condition was itself a proof of the need of scientific teaching in sociology. The most encouraging thing about the congress was the report of the missionary committee, appointed at the last congress, showing how gladly the doctrines of a more liberal religion are received. Two new societies had been organized and are prosperous. Jenkin Llojd Jones, the inspirer of the movement, said the Congress "has come to staj not as a decoration, nor as an op portunity for rhetoric, but to apply prin ciples that have been so long inactive as to threaten impotence to those who hold them. Talk unapplied, words unutil ized, speech not harnessed to the work of the world, make for imbecility." TREND OF THE TIMES. A pleasant feature of the congress was that such men as Dr. Mornerie, of Lon don and the Church of England, anil Prof. Herron, of tho Congregational Church, felt free to take a place on the platform among the speakers. It shows the trend of the times. Dr. Mornerie's utterances would sound radical to an Episcopal con gregation, but they were mild to the ears of the audience he addressed. But while the congress generally was In advance of Dr. Mornerie theologicallj, It was "very far behind Dr. Herron on 6ocial questions. They had received the principles which Dr. Herron announced, but they had not jet porcoived the applications to which Dr. Herron called their attention. Dr. Kent will speak next Sunday of what ho saw in Chicago outside the congress, es pecially of tho Civic Federation, the Hull House settlement, where college-bred men and women have located down on Halsted street In the midst of the destitute to try by personal contact to lift them up to a decent oxistence, and of the board of trade which ho visited with a member who talked freely of tho operations. HaRRCd a Disorderly Crowd.

Ave. NATIONAL UNION MISSION Movement to Organize an Association with Washington as Headquarters Dr. Louis Klopcli Says Meetings That Ho Has Seen Hero "Would Bo Im- poeslblo in Now York. The air of "The Old Time Religion is Good Enough for lie" was caught up from the choir on the Gospel "Wagon of the Cen tral Union Mission jesterday afternoon by an unusually large crowd assembled at Seventh street and Louisiana avenue and swelled into a grand and beautiful chorus. "Washington has cause for congratulation in the fact that this Central Union Mission service in the open air and Its generally laudable work have attracted the atten tion of the larger cities of the Union, and It is now proposed to form a national as sociation, with the Central Union Mission as the type and head of the movement. Among those who were on the Gospel "Wagon jesterday when the services were In progress, was Dr. Louis Klopsch, the publisher of the Christian Herald of Xew York. He is also tho manager of the Bowery Mission of New York. Dr. Klopsch accompanied the expedition that went out from New York with tho flour ship for the Russians, and more recently went on the expedition in aid of tiie drouth suf ferers in the Northwest. He has directed in the past few years the distribution, through the Christian Herald and other agencies, of sums aggregating more than $600,000. He is quito a young man, but full of en ergy, and is a pleasing aud graceful talker. Ho bas been attracted by the great work of tho Central Union Mission here, and is in the city to study the sub ject practically. Ho is one of the fore most promoters in tho design of nation alizing the Union Mission This great bubject will be discussed at a meeting of the officers of the Central Union Mission, which will be held to-night at 7 30 o'clock in the directors' room of the mission, and It Is expected that Br. Klopsch and the following -visitors will attend Rev. S. C Mason, of Lor Angeles, Cal., Buperlntcudent of the Pacific Coast Mis sion: Mrs. E. M. "Whltlemore, the founder of tho "Door of Hope" Mission In New York city, for tlie rescue ot women; D. L Davis, of Cleveland, publisher of the Gospel News; MaJ. George A.

Dennett, whose mission eat ing houses extend from Boston to San Fran cisco; John Merril, of California, presi dent of tho Pacific Gospel Union. The Idea is to make "Washington the head quarters of tho National Union. Dr. Klopsch delivered a brief address last night in which he outlined his plan. He congratulated the people of "Washing ton on the orderly manner in which these exercises" were permitted to be held in public. He said that in New York such a thing would not be possible, either through police authorities or the sufferances of an unruly mob which would attend such open air exhibitions. He described what he saw at the open air meeting yesterday as the most grat ifying exhibition of order and practical results he had ever seen in all the coun tries ho had visited.
