Dr. Warren Tells His Parishion ers How They Stand. By May 1 next the Church of the Holy Trinity, on Hoboken avenue, between Central' and Oakland avenues, will cease to he an independent church, and will he turned over to Bishop Starkey to hereafter he conducted as a mission church, under the supervision of the Bishopric. The church was organized forty years ago, when the Hill was almost a complete forest, by a few enthusiastic Episcopalians. They immediately secured enough sub scriptions to lease a plot of ground on St. Paul’s avenue, near the corner of Central avenue. They broke ground directly, aiul in a short time a modest little church was erected,, which had a large attendance from the day of its dedication. About teu years after a Sunday school was started in con nection with the church. Other improve ments have been made, and in Li'S- or thereabouts the church was removed to its present site, where it has been highly prosperous until a few years ago. For some time the church has been run ning into debt, with no chance of paying it. Last Friday the vestry held a meet ing, and by a 'unanimous vote they re solved to sell all the fittings of the church, and turn the church over to the bishop. Kev. Dr. Warren, pastor of the church, instead of the sermon Sunday, delivered an address. He said that he had prepared a statement of the circumstances for the vestry, and that he thought it only his duty to give the information to the whole congregation also. In all his experience as a minister, he said, he had never had a more unsatisfactory pastorate. Constant jealousies and bad fueling among the congregation had kept him iu eternal turmoil and had decimat ed the attendance in no small degree. A number of the more proniinent members were far behind in their pew rents, some of them owing rent for a year. When he took charge many of his friends told him that it was impossible to succeed, but he did not believe it, and began with a firm determination to further the inter ests of his parish. He had finally to suc cumb, however. He then proceeded to make a statement of the financial con CM HULL Ul LUC CilUU/U, ftiiu uinuup, bills mentioned one of $1,200 to Mr. Mackey, of the Jersey City Coal Com pany, and the rent for a year of the ground on which the church stands to Judge Beach. He stated that the sale of all the furnishings of the church and Sun day school would bring quite a sum, and with the addition of the pew rents out standing would go far toward paying off the debt. While he did not like to speak of it, yet it was his duty to state that he had not received any salary for eight months. During his remarks Dr. War ren’s voice failed him several times, and a number of the congregation were also affected to tears. Mr. Mackey, Mr. D. V. N. Williams and Mr. William Fields, three of the ves trymen, have been untiring in their efforts to keep the church alive, but even they finally had to give it up. There is talk of reorganizing under a different name, and a site on Summit ave nue, not far from the Five Corners, will in that case probably be selected. AT THE POSTOFFICE.

John F. Kelly, Postmaster. “Judge, your honor, this is the first time X have been drunk in seventeen years,’> said James Nesbitt in Justice Woodman’s court tills morning. As the prisoner walked into the dock he looked like the prophets of old. His long gray beard fell upon his breast, and his "hair, which was white under the cares of eighty winters, touched his shoulders. “I live in McDonald county, and just came down to Chicago to sec the sights. I took a little bit of Chicago whiskey and it laid me out,” said Nesbitt. The officer told how lie had found him on the sidewalk dead drunk with a bottle of wiiiskey in his pocket. “What are you going to do?” asked the Court. “I just waut, a chance to get home to my old wife, and I will be satisfied to spend the rest of my days on the farm and stay away from Chicago. It’s no place for an old codger like me.” “Well, go home. Discharged.”—Ex chamje. A Bettor Fortune for a Better Price. Young girl (at fortune teller’s)—What ?
