Pnymrnt Ordered for n Ilallrond Destroyed by ltebrl Forres. Washington'. Vee. 20. On Friday last the house passed a bill to pay theilcMin ville ami Manchester railroad in Tenne-ee S'J40,SS0outof the treasury for damages sustained by that road during the war. The claim Is not only fraudulent, but the pas sage of the bill establishes a precedent for the payment nf many other similar claims that are pending before conrress or may be presented. It Is alleged that the road was destroyed by the Union army during the war, but there are in n ashington old sold iers who say that when the Union troops reached It they found that the rebels had torn up the track and taken away the rails. Sherman's army rebuilt it and it was afterward torn up a second time by General Wheeler, now in congress. General Gros venor, of Ohio, now in congress, was in the advance of the Union array when the road was reached, and in a speech in the house declared that destruction had preceded them aud they had to rebuild the whole track. Judge Geddes, a democrat, and the chair man of the committee on war claims, said in a speech Friday that the payment of this claim would open the way for others like it. winch would amount to more than the national debt at the closo of the war. Thirty-nine republicans voted in favor of the bill, w hich was passed by one majority. Ttie passage of the bill creates much sur prise and comment AN ACT OF HUMANITY. Establishment of a Night Lodging and Cof fee House In Washington. Washington, Dec. 20. The approach of the holidays and the glowing hearthstones of the wealthy people of Washington have moved them to a few uncommon acts ot hu manity. Among the most charitable act is that of the establishment of the night lodg ing house, and upon a much better scale than those In other sections of the country. A building has been secured, and very com- fortaole, clean apartments have been ar ranged for the accommodation of over 100 ' lodgers. It is known as the Light Lodging House, andievery class of distressed people I Ls received and no questions asked. It is j customary in most plares for the keepers of free lodging houses to put applicants through such a catechism as to make faTors ' extended almost unwelcome. When a man asks for a bed to sleep on and a cup of coffee in the morning he does not like to have to give a history of his career, and the system Inaugurated here of permitting a distressed man or woman to go to his or her bed In Ieace without having to rehear) his or her misery may be a cue worth the taking by other cities, when it Is ascertained that many more people are relieved by such a coure. OEATH OF AN OLD TIMER At the Alleged Age of One Hundred and Thlrly-FIre Tears. St. Louis, Dec 20. A letter from Sas-. sakawa, Indian territory, gives an account of the death there on the Stli InsL of Mrs. Susanna Warren, perhaps the oldest per son in the United States, If not the world. She was born In .the old town of SL Au gustine. Fla., in 1750, fifteen years before the Americans conceived the idea of na tional independence. She was born a slave and was the property of Spanish masters until ISIS, when she. with other Spanish slaves, lied from the town of Pensacola when it was taken by General Jackson. She lived in the Seminole country from then un til the second treaty of ieace with tbeScm lnoles, when she was regaided as their common property, and was removed with tliem to their Indiau territory. She leaves one daughter living, who resides in Austin, Texas, and is in her ninety-seventh year. She leaves many grandchildren here, some of them nearly seventy years of age. COOD ADVICE Givrnby Cardinal Gibbons to a Bohemian Congregation. Baltimore. Dec 20. The new Catholic church, St Wenceslaus, was dedicated Sunday by Cardinal Gibbons, who made an address to tboe present The congregation ls composed almost entirely of Bohemians, and in the course of his remarks the cardi nal said the people owed a duty to the coun try, and in serving the country they served God. He spoke of the relations between the employer and the employed, and said their interests were mutual. He warned them to avoid engaging In anything that might lead to anarchy, but by industry and thrift make for themselves a name and a standing among their fellow-citizens. He also spoke against any socialistic movement as a wrong to the country and to religion. An address In German was made by Rev. Father Shaner. and one In Bohemian by Key. Father Jeutsche.

CONCRESS. Second Session Korty-Nlnth Congress. Washington, Dec 18. House. On motion of Mr. Ward (Ind.), Senate amend ments to the house bill authorizing the employment of mall messengers in the pos tal service were non-concurred in, and a conference ordered. Mr. Dibble (S. C.) asked unanimous con sent to put upon its passage a bill appro priating $500,000 for a public building at Charleston, S. C. Mr. Hepburn (la.) objected on the ground that, in view of the recent experi ence of that city, this not the time to ap propriate 5500,000 for the erection of a new building. Mr. Dibble remarked that if the bill were not passed tho government would have to transact1 its business in the open air. In the morning hour Mr. Hill (O.) on be half of the committee on territories, called up the bill providing for an additional as sociate judge of the supreme court for the territory of Xew Mexico. The house then went into committee of the whole. Mr. Crip (Ga.) in the chair in the Oklahoma bill. Instantly a hush fell over the house, and the noise in the galleries ceased. All eves were turned upon Mr. Morrison, who. aris ing in his seat, said: "Mr. Speaker, I move that the house resolve itself into a committee of the whole on the state of the union for the purpose of considering reve nue bills."' Mr. MfhTmley (O.l And on that I de mand the yeas and nays. During the roll-call absolute silence reigned in the houe, and many members with pencil in hand were figuring up ttie vote Messrs. Morrison and Handall were apparently among the least Interested mem bers, each leaning back in his chair within a few feet of the other, while now and then a pleasant remark was exchanged between them. The motion was lost yeas H9, nays 154. The announcement was received with some applause on the republican side, but It was quickly suppressed. Owing to the deaths of Messrs. Dowd- ney, Arnot and l'nce, the membership of the house Is reduced to 322. There were 303 votes cast and seven pairs announce!, showing that live members wtre absent without pairs. These were Messrs. Aiken (S. C.) who has never qualified as a mem ber of the house, Ellsberry (O.), King (La.). Keagan (Tex.), Keed (X. C). Twenty-six democrats voted In the nega tive. Of these New ork contributed live Messrs. Bliss. Merriman, MuIIer, Spriggs and btahlneeken rennsylvanla hve Messrs. Boyle, Ourtin. Ennentrout, Kan dall and Sowden; Olils seven Messrs. Foran, Geddes. LaFevre, Seney, Warner. Wilkins and Campbell: Louisiana four Messrs. Gay, Irion, St- Martin and Wal lace; Xew Jersey two Messrs. Green and McAdoo; Illinois two Messrs. Lawler and Ward; Alabama one Mr. Martin. The only republican votes in favor of Mr. Morrison's motion came from Massa chusetts and Minnesota Messrs. Hayden and Stone of the former state, and Messrs. Xelson, Strait, Wakefield and White of the latter. Messrs. T. J. Campbell, Pinder, Vide, (X. Y.), Findlay (Md.), Stone and Haydeu (Mass.), who last year voted against the consideration of the bill, today voted in the affirmative Mr. James (X. V.), who last year voted to consider, today reversed his vote. Mr. Herbert (Ala.) attempted to call up the naval reorganization bill, but was an tagonized by Mr. Crisp, with the Pacific railroad funding bill, and the speaker ruled that the Question must first be taken on calling up the latter measure, as it was a prior special order. Mr. Springer opposed the measure. He wished its consideration to be postponed until after the holidays, at which time he hoped to have the privilege of submitting some remarks upon the bill and perhaps some amendments to iL If its considera tion was pressed at this time he would re sort to all parliamentary methods to defeat It. On a standing vote there was a ma jority ot 117 to 40 in favor of its considera tion. Mr. Holman demanded the yeas and nays, pending which Mr. Springer made a fili bustering motion to adjourn, which at 2:15 was carried, its opponents not having suf ficient force to order the yeas and navs. A REMARKABLE BOOK. Written by the Illtml Major of Vonngs town.O. Washington', Dec 20. A rather re markable book has made its appearance here at a most opportune time, while the question of the regulation of corporations by congress is under discussion. It is a curious production, written in the stylo of Pope and Dryden, and presents the politi cal situation in a very truthful, although novel way. The author is Walter Camp bell, the mayor of Youngstown, O., and not only the contents of the book, but the character of the author makes it attractive. He is a man who lias been blind from child hood, gained a college education and graduated with the highest honors in his class. He never used the books that are manufactured for the blind, but his lessons and all tiie knowledge of literature lie has gained was acquired by having peo ple read to him. The book is an allegory, representing the struggle between capital and labor, and concludes with a prophetic announcement of a reconciliation of the contending forces. The hero ft Civitas, a young man, who marries Libertas, hat tiring of her, takes up with a harlot named An archia, by whom he has a son called Pluto crat and the two, mother and sou. so con trol Civitas that everything is rapidly going to the dogs. The situation is described as follows: 'Where'er welook we see but rings, Afsociatlons. corners, union pools. Or simply corporations make the rules Which run the markets and prescribes the price We pay for fooit, for furniture, for Ice: For everything e eat, or drink, or wear; Kor berths In sleepers, or for railroad fare; ForcoHns. cradles everything ne use. From grandma's nightcap to the baby's shoes. We do an errand, telegram dispatch. Kxpress a package, or but strike a match; We ring a telephone, our lamp e light, Wha'e'er we do, bi day, by night. Some combination, somewhere, tribute takes. And what we pay ls Just the price It makes. Orow larger, fewer, factories and mills. And mechanism more men's places nils. Till In vast corporations men are lost. Mechanics for machines aside are tossed." After awhile Plutocrat and Anarchia, having grown lusty aud reckless in the free dom Clvitis had shown them, came into col lisionriots, murder, fraud prevail. The kingdom is shaken wit liconf usion, and it is a question whether Anarchia or Plutocrat will rule, when Libertas, who has been watching the proceedings with tearful ejes and an anxious heart, comes forward again, and recovering Civitas from the clutches of his two enemies, smites right and left until both the contending elements are subdued and laws are passed to regulate them. A Labor Ticket to be Presented. Cincinnati. Dec 20. Workmen's hall was tilled to overflowing yesterday after noon, the occasion being a mass meeting to decide whether there should be a labor ticket in the field in the municipal election next April. The matter was thoroughly ili-cussed and finally resolutions were adopted declaring it expedient to nominate a separate ticket for local officers. Four committees of five men each were appoint ed from the I'uiteil Ijibor union, the Henry George club and the meeting. These com mittees will mfet and arrange the prelimi naries for a labor convention. Hoodwinked the Police. Dnii.iN. Dec 20. Joseph Ilichard Cox, Jeremiah Jordan, and Joseph Edward Ken ny, Parneillte members for east and west Clare and south Cork, respectively, succeed ed yesterday in totally hoodwinking the ivollee and collecting anil escaping with all the rents duo from tenants oil the Yandc- lour estates In County Clare. Don't forget Dr. Helwig's lecture Tues day evening at the First Engllsk Lutheran church at 8 o'clock. THE PAYNE INVESTIGATION. A Ilroadslde fioui Heprrseiitatlte George C. Itnwllii. on the Preparation or the Committee's Kruort. The following appears In the Cincinnati Commcrchil Odirtfc, of the 19th, as a sje cial from this city: Si'itiNoriELK, O.. Dec IS. I called on Hon. George C. Hawlins this evening and asked: "Mr. ItawIIns, hare you seen the Inter view In which Mr. Hall seems to admit the authorship of the Payne Investigating re port and also to suggest that the failure of the report to be more pronounced w as due to the tear that you could not be Induced to sign the report?" Mr. ItawIIns said: "I have read the inter view, and as to whether Mr. Hall, assisted by Mr. Cowgill, was the author of the re port, or Mr. Cowgill, assisted by Mr. Hall, 1 am unable to state. I observe, however, that Mr. Hall not only allows hlmslf to be considered the framer of the report, but intimates that he would even have ran sacked the vitals of the Payne crowd with far more terrible vigor had I not on ac count of my 'peculiar constitution,' cud geled him into moderation. The manner in which he would have driven every per son connected with that Senatorial deal from the face of the earth, had he been al lowed his way, would have perhaps been after the style of the following paragraph In his interesting Interview: "YVe'I, I be gan the work by carefully reading and studying the testimony, and made notes as I progressed. When through with making notes ami references, a general consulta tion was had. All realized that bribery had not been actually proven, and could not be with the limited jurisdiction of the com mittee' Is it because, this last sentence was not incoiporated in the report that he refuses to be comforted? 1 admit that it would have tx-en a thunderbolt. If this confession of his be true, may 1 not fairly ask why he should attempt to masquerade behind the pretext of my conservatism? What actually occurred at the private and strictly confidential interview that Mr. Hall sieaks of as having taken place between Mr. Cowgill and himself 1 have no means of knowing, except as now revealed. Indeed, this Is my first positive Information that they had any dark seances at all. That there was any lack of harmony, however, between myself and my republican colleagues, or that Mr. Hall was called in on account of any difference between us, or that on any occasion I re fused to meet or objected to meeting with them, or neglected to meet with them as often as invited, or that I was solicted to write the report, ls wholly untrue. It is true that on one occasion I said to Mr. Cow gill. that when he and Mr. Tompkins had the report ready. 1 would sign It If it suited me. and if it aid not I would not This occurred some days after the taking of tes timony had been closed. Nothlng.had been said to me about the matter, and I was un der the erroneous Impression that without permitting in to share In theirdeliberations, they were engaged in the preparation of the report It appears now that this silencs was only due to the waiting of Mr. Cowgill until the coming of Mr. Hall. I wrote no part of the report. nor do I think that Mr. Tompkins wrote any part It was read to me from time to time by Mr. Cowgill, 1 think ex clusively, from the proof slips. Mr. Cow gill showed me some manuscript which had been prepared by Mr. Tompkins, but for some reason no part of it 1 think, was In corporated in the report The statement of Mr. Hall that I objected to two or three points, or any point in the report, as not sufficiently conservative. Is untrue. It was the concurrent agreement of all three of the republican members that the report should state no conclusion not fairly sustained by the evidence. "In regard to the ex-Govemor Foster matter mentioned I know nothing what ever. I never met Mr. Hall until he had been In Columbus some days in response to Mr. towgiirs invitation. He did not come at my request, nor do I think in pursuance of any wish of Mr. Tompkins. We con sented to it however. For my part. I wish to add that I considered the duty, burden, privilege and main responsibility of prepar ing the report to be witli Chairman Cowgill. 1 made no objection to its preparation by him, with such clerical assistance as he might see fit to select 1 concurred in the report." STREET CAR ACCIDENT VICTIMS. Miss Cllne Suffering From an Abscess on Her Arm Condltlou of Mis. Gibson. Miss Erminlf Cllne, who was injured in the street car accident, now nearly two weeks ago, has agaii taken a turn for the worse. An abscess has begun to' fonu on the back part of her arm, and Dr. Itusscll sajs that it will be necessary to make a cut in the ami about four inches long. It seems that the glass which was imbedded in her arm, cut the bone as well as the flesh, thus forming the abscess. It was thought at first that the ami would have to be amputated, and the danger of having to perform such an operation is not yet passed, but it Is hoixsl that the arm can yet be saved. Miss Cline, who has already suf fered terribly witti her arm, has yet many weeks of trouble before her, as her physi cian says that the abscess will result in a running sore, which will be troublesome for a long time. Miss Edith Gibson, who was Injured In the same accident is also reported to be not so well. She Is still confined to her bed. her chief trouble being a spinal diflicuiy. Yesterday afternoon, when the fire occurred at the residence of C. E. Winters, where Miss (ilbson is, she was carried to the house of a neighbor, and the consequent shock to her nervous system brought out symptons for the worse. It is thought however, that she will entirely recover from her injuries in a few weeks. JAILED FOR BURGLARS. fames nnd Mike llray In Hoc for Hreaklnf; Into aStablennd Stealing Chickens. Between 2 and 4 o'clock yesterday morn ing burglars entered the stable of C. F. McGilvray, at 4S5 east Main street and stole therefrom eleven out of fourteen chickens. Mr. McGilvray discovered his loss when he arose yesterday morning and at once reported the matter to Officer Wil son. It was discovered that the thieves had forced the lock off the door of the stable, thus making their offense burglary. A rail road man saw the men as they were leaving the stable with the chickens and followed them as far as Sycamore street where he called to them to drop the chickens. They dropped them and started to run, but changed their minds, ami turning around, made the railroad man rlee. Yesterday morning Officer Wilson inves tigated the case, and on Sycamore strevt found the chicken tracks In the snow lead into Bray's house. He entered the house with Mr. McGilvray. found all the stolen chickens, and arrested James and Mike Bray as the burglars. A Sleigh Smashed. Yesterday morning about 11 o'clock Dr. Russell was called to see Michael Clifford who had his leg broken so badly on Satur day evening. The doctor was accompanied by Elmore Grim and while the latter was holding the horse near Forrest avenue the animal became frightened at something and ran away. The running away of Dr. Hus- sell s horses Is an awfully mouldy chestnut, but this time the sleigh to which the horse was attached was smashed all to pieces. The animal was captured near the corner of East and Pleasant streets. Corn Stolen. On Saturday night about 0 o'clook James Lannon, residing on Southern avenue, stopped in Stelnman's grocery, Xo. aoj south Center street to purchase some gro ceries. He left his horse and wagon stand ing In front of the grocery, and after mak ing his purchases and returning to tho wagon, lie discovered that seme sneak th'ef had walked off with a bushel of corn whioh he had left in the wagon. The ease was re ported to officer Wilson. DEDICATED TO GOD. Appropriate and Impressive Dedicatory Services at the Second Lutheran . Church Yesterday. AnAble ermnn by Kev. Dr. Helwlg An Immense Congregation Present 2,fiOO SecuredInteresting Sunday School EierrlHesItnptlsm of Children. In Saturday's Gi-ohk-Kkithmc was pub lished a very full anil accurate description of the beautiful new building of the Second English Lutheran church, in anticipation of its public dedication yesterday. Truly It is a model church edifice and Its erection re flects great credit upon both the church membership and the city. But yesterday was the great day in the Lutheran brotherhood. The Second church was joined in its services by the First church, whose services were dispensed with for that purpose. Many likewise from other Christian churches, and still others without church connection, at tended and joined In the meetings of the day. MTfPAY SCHOOL. First In order came the Sunday school at 0 o'clock In their new room, which was crowded to its utmost capacity. This school has a history indeed. It was only orga nized three years ago next January with an enrollment of 130, and now numbers 400, being exceeded in membership but by few schools in the city. Xot ouiy that but with that veteran Sunday school man. Father P. A. Schindler, at its head, no school can make a better showing, in good work done, in proportion to its membership. At this first meeting in the new room yesterday the reg ular lessons were omitted and addresses of a dedicatory nature suitable to the occasion were made by Mr. Schindler, the pastor. Rev. Dr. L. A. Gotwald. Rev. Dr. Falco ner, pastor of the First Presbyterian church. Rev. Dr. Rust pastor of High street M. E. church. Rev. W. II. Warren, pastor of the Congregational church. The officers, teachers and scholars were perfectly de lighted with the appearance and arrange ment of the Sunday school room, and, to gether with the large number of visitors present enjoyed the addresses and singing very much. DEI1ICATOIIY SERVICES Long before the hour for church services, the people began gathering, and by the time of opening, both moms and gallery were crowded and jammed, and many were compelled to go away unable to gain admis sion. A number of other ministers occu pied the pulpit with the pastor, and Dr. Helwlg, who was to preach the sermon. The regular opening serv ices of the Lutheran liturgy were con ducted by the pastor, the choir and congre gation joining in the service, which was very Impressive. The pastor began by re peating "The Lord in his lib Holy temple, let all the earth keep silence before him." (tlona ratria was chanted by the choir. The "Confession of Sin," was joined in heartily by the congregation. Then came the "Kyrie" chanted by the choir and the Apostles' Creed repeated by the congrega tion. The choir aud congregation united in alnging "Gloria in Excelsls." Rev. u. . it. Peters read as the lesson of the morning the 2tth, 84th and 122d Psalms. Rev. C. Lepley announced as the first hymn, "Hefore Jehovah's Awful Throne," and never before was it sung to "Old Hundred" as It was by the 800 or 1,000 in the audience on this occasion. Rev. Prof. C. L. Ehrenfeld offered prayer and Rev. J. W. Rydetannounced the next hymn, Dlt. HELWIO'rt SEItMON. Rev. Dr. J. B. Helwlg, pastor of the First Lutheran church, preached an eloquent and forcible sermon, showing the necessity of uniting faith and work In ordersuccessfully to accomplish the work of the church. His text was found in the fourteenth chapter of Exodus and verses 13 and 14: "And Moses said unto the people, fear ye not stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord which he shall show to you this day. And the Iord said unto Moses, wherefore criest thou unto me? Speak unto the child ren of Israel, that they go forward." Tiie following is a brief abstract of the sermon. These two portions of scripture refer to the same transactions on the part of God with his ancient people. In the firt they were commanded to stand still. In order that they might see the hand of God in their behalf. In the other they are commanded to go forward for the same purpose In the second portions there is a seeming contra diction. But it is in the letter only and not in the spirit of the truth which is taught In the journey from Lgypt to Canaan, there was a time when they were to stand still, and a time also when they were to go forward. And it they had gone forward when they were command ed to stand still, they would have been overwhelmed In the sea, and had they stood still when they were commanded to go forward, they would have been destroyed by the Egyptians. And so also it is well for God's people to know when to wait and when to go forward. God still commands his people to wait on him with prayer and with faith, but he also commands them to go forward with benev olence and Christianity. And when they do go forward He still shows them His sal vation as before and how often also on the very day of their obedience. And we should never fall to remember that for the accomplishment of God's purposes in the earth, he usually employs human Instru mentality. Ail that we have and are, all that we may hope to have or to be, in this world or in the world to come, should be esteemed as the gift of God, and as such, also for his use and at his disposal. And the light in which we should regard all our earthly possessions, therefore, is that we are but the steward of them, and that hi the end we must also render an account for our stewardship. Every congregation of believers has its appropriate and proportionate part to do in order that all this may be realized. And these are expected to do that work In the place whloh they occupy, and in harmony also with the requirements of the time or the age In which they live. Springfield, with 35,000 people, can sus tain two churches much more easily than Springfield with 5,000. The eye is dazzled and the mind becomes bewildered, and the heart pulsates between hope and fear when these contemplate the whirl and progress of the nations now. And now for the promotion of these Christian objects you have builded this church ami in which we are permitted to rejoice with you. God said to Ills ancient people "Let them make me a sanctuary, that I may dwell among them." This you have done. And as God is the great Master-builder of all. so have you also built here to Him and for Him a house upon which His divine ap proval may ever rest. It is beautiful for situation, commodious and orderly in its proportions, convenient and useful in its arrangements, artistic and beautiful in its finish. A church in w hich it is easy to speak, easy to hear.and which ls one of God's bless ings for any church. And as God's word shall endure forever, and as His church Is founded upon a rock, and against which the gates of hell shall not prevail, so have you also builded for him a sanctuary from the stone that lias been hardened by the ages, from the brick that has passed through the fire and these agreeing one with the other, then also united with the other material ot which this structure is composed, this house completes the ideal of that in spired one who said, "Put on thy strength, O Zion- Put on thy beautiful garment" You devote this house to the ifreat work of making humanity wiser and better, ho ller and happier, to the work of elevating and perfecting the human soul, and fitting it to dwell at last in the new heaven and in the new earth, wherein dwelleth righteous ness. My friends, your future prospects as a congregation, your future success as a church, largely depends upon this da and this hour. And which will lie a day and hour that will reach far Into the future. Make It an hour long to be remembered. Yea, never to be forgotten, for the great and the good work which is yet to be completed in this hour. Now may God help jou so to do. Be lib eral and God w ill bless you. Amen. At the close of the sermon I). It Hoster man, member of the church council and acting treasurer, in the absence of Itoss Mitchell, read the following IIISTOIIs optiirciiciicii: The Second English Lutheran church of Springfield was organized on the 13th of January, ISSt, by forty-Bye members from the First English Lutheran chuich, wh" were honorably dismissed from the parent church for the purpose of organizing a sec ond church. The chapel property at the corner of Clifton and Boler streets, formerly owned and occupied by the HaptisLs, had been bought and enlarged by tiie First church, with the money known as the Kookwaltei fund, with the Intention of donating It to the new organization, as soon as it should become organized and permanently estab lished. A mission Sunday school had been main tained in this chapel for several years, prior to the organization of the Second church as an afternoon school, by members of the first Lutheran church, hut on the next Sunday after the or ganization of the congregation it was changed to a morning school, and was reor ganized under the leadership of Iiro. Schindler as superintendent and became the Sunday school of the Second church. The attendance the first Sunday was 130. all told, but the Interest at once began to grow and the attendance to Increase utll the relatively large number of 354 have been recorded, being more than the old building could comfortably accommodate. Shortly after the organization of the church a ladies' missionary society was or ganized, as also a ladles' furnishing society, both of which have accomplished excellent work in their respective departments of church work. A prayer meeting and teachers' meeting has been conducted regularly on Wednesday evening of each week ever since our organi zation as a church, and a young people's praytr meeting soon toiiowed. conducting their service a half hour before the public service every Sunday evening. la addition to these, protracted services have been held in January each year fol lowing the week of praver. and catecheti cal instruction for the young. So that all the different features of church work have received consideration. Returning now to the history of the church proper, we state that from the or ganization of the church on to May 1884, the pulpit was supplied in the main by Pro- iessor .cnrenieia, ot w ittenDerg college. Rev. A. E. Wagner, who had been elected pastor, took charge of the congregation May I. 13S4, serving it faithfully and well until the time of his resignation in July, I!S3. For more than four months after that the pulpit was vacant and variously supplied until the first Sunday In December, when ltev. L. A. Uotwald, D. D.. of York. Pa- began his pastorate, having faithfully and efficiently labored with and for the congre gation irora mat time until, the present with a devotion seldom exceeded. The membership of the church has In creased in numbers so that at present we can count on about 175 faithful and active workers. This congregation in its short history of three years, has had its share of trials and discouragements, but with a de votion that knew no failure, it has stead fastly gone forward in the work of the mas ter, and has achieved a large measure of success. In April, 1S85, the church council decided to proceed to erect a new church edifice, if suitable grounds could be secured and suffi cient subscriptions could be raised for that purpose, and a committee was appointed to canvass the congregation and community to see wnetner sumcient pledges could be se cured to Justify further action. That com mittee soon reported about five thousand dollars raised, aud a worthy member of the church council pledged himself for half as much more as might be received from all other pledges. Next a committee was appointed to re ceive and submit propositions to the church council for the sale of properties suitable for our church site. Several propositions were received and considered, and at a con gregational meeting held May 20, 18S4, it was decided to purchase the Lupfer and Greene lots, at the southwest comer of Clifton and Pearl streets, at a price not to exceed $5,500. In June following a committee was ap pointed, composed of Brothers Startzman, Mitchell and Ulrick, with instructions to procure and submit plans for the new church. The services of C. A. Cregar as architect were secured, and the plans pre- pareu oy nun were accepted. In January, ISSd, less than a year age, the building committee was instructed to advertise for bids for the erection of the new church building, and on the 28th of the same month the contract on the building proper was awarded to Fish A Crist at S10.G70. The comer-stone was laid Sunday, May urn, witn appropriate exercises, and now in less than eight mouths after we are assem bled in the new and completed building in thLs special service of dedicating same to the worship of God. The sub-contractors under Fish A Crist for the separate parts of the work are as follows: Brick work. Azel B. Smith: carpenter work. Win. Mllholland; plasterlg, Wra. Hulllnger: galvanized iron. Peet A Co.; slate work, T. C. Ackerson Jfc Bro.: paint ing, J. T. Ridgely. The stone walls and dressed stone work were put up by the orig inal contractors. Fish & Crist In addition to the foregoing, council awarded the contract of furnishing the pews and pulpit and altar furniture to Grant & Swain, of Richmoud, Ind. The contract for one new furnace and the removal of the old furnace and setting It up. was awarded to the Patric Furnace company. The contract for stained and plain glass was awarded to the Carter-Davis company, of Cleveland. The chandeliers and other gas fixtures were furnished by the Spring field Gas company. The chairs In the main Suuday school and Infant rooms, were fur nished by Andrews, Wise A Putnam, and the carpet by A. C. Black. The basement room is now being finished by W. S. Glad felter. and an organ will need to be pur chased in the near future, leaving a bell for the tower and the papering or frescoing of the walls to a more distant day. The entire cost of our church property, including the lot the bulldlngcompleteand the furniture will reach in round numbers 520,000, ami the amount we can fairly hope to realize out of our subscriptions, and from the sale of the chapel property, and the amount already realized from socials and from Sunday school collections is about 813,000, leaving a present indebtedness of about 37,000, a part of .which we hope to reduce by ttie effort to be made on this oc casion. It will be seen from the foregoing that all the contracts were given to Spring field men and firms, as far as it was possible to do so, the glass and pew contracts being the only ones to non-residents, there being no Springfield parties engaged in manufacturing pews or glass. And now we feel that our sketch would be Incomplete did we fall to mention, that our beautiful memorial window Inscribed In Memory of ' """"', Rev. Ezxi Killib. D. D. Is the gift of Prof. Maurice Kirby, in grate ful remembrance nf him who was a friend to him hi his childhood, and whose memory be desires in this fitting way to honor and perpetuate, 1IA1SINO FUNDS. The pastor then made an appeal to the congregation, stating that the members had already given liberally, but It was desirable that at least Sr.000 ot the 37000 indebtedness be raised today. Eight solicitors were ap pointed to circulate among the audience to secure pledges and cash to that end. During the time the solicitors were at work Rev. Dr. W. H. Singley. of Bellefontalne, presi dent or Wittenberg Synod, with which tht congregation and pastor are Identified, ad- dressed the congregation, impressing the blessedness of giving, and kept the audi ence in continued good humor. A generous member of the congregation (supposed to be Ross Mitchell, who has ai ready given a large aiuount towards the cnurcn piuiiiingi stands pledged to give si for every S 10 secured in cash and good pledges, so there was an additional incent ive towards making the amount rai-ed as Urge as possible. The sum realized in the morning was about 31.350. The members had already giv in just as liberally s could te expected, some ghin; out jf their very jwverty ai a sariuav no out eNe can tell. Hut they all resiHiiided again 'heerfully and generously, from their love fr the church. Many members of other churches, and . many out s'de the pale of any church, and etpeclally the members of the Firsi Lutheran church, gave liberally, for which pastor and people feel very grateful. Under the leadership of Father Schindh r a large orchestra and choir has been organ ized, and tilled the choir gallery in the rear 'if the pulpit overlooking the congregation They rendered good service yesterday am) were highly commended for their efficiency. The members of the orchestra are: Flutes. Charles Shindler and Charles Ehremeld: cornets, Elmer Billow and Pearl Welty: violins, tviinam .Mise and Charles Cly: vlollncello, Oscar Wait; organist, OraBost Mention should not be omitted of the fact that the fine memorial window in memory of Dr. Ezra Keller, first president of Wit tenberg college, which Is so much admired, was presented by Professor Maurice Kirby. of Louisville, Ky., as a grateful tribute to one who was his beloved benefactor and f i lend In the days of his youth and strug gles. The exercises of the morning were closed with the dedicatory services according to the bautlful and impressive liturgy ot the Lutheran church, by the pastor, the whole congregation joining with the pastor, re peating the Lord's prayer. The doxology was sung and benediction was pronounced by Rev. Dr. Richard. BAmsM OF CIIILniiES. At 3 p. m. a parent's and chlldrens' meet ing was held for the baptism of children. Addresses were made by Rev. Dr. Ehren feld, Rev. O. X. II. Peters and the pastor. A remarkable feature was the baptism of twenty children at one time, something that ls seldom met with In a pastor's experiences. IVESINO SERVICES. In the evening the church was again crowded to hear a very excellent semion from ht John iv: 23. 24, by the Rev. Dr. W. II. Singley. "But the hour cometh, and now is. when the true worshippers shall worship tiie Father In spirit and in truth; for the Father seeketh snch to worship him. God Is a spirit and they that worship him must wor ship him in spirit and in truth." After the sermon the pastor made another appeal, and ne.irlj S350 was raised, making with the 31,350 received In the morning nearly $1,700, and Mr. Mitchell's proposi tion raised the amount to 52,500. which will leave the Indebtedness on the church about 34,500, which the congregation feels per fectly capable of carrying for a few years. Before closing this article it should be remarked that yesterday's meetings demon strated the acoustic properties of the build ing to be admirable. Every speaker was heard distinctly through the church. Pas tor and people are more than charmed with their new church home. A BAD FiRi. Or. Hullck's Horse and II igT Tlurned In the St. Raphael's Church SLible Last -Sight. Last night exactly at 0:10 o'clock an alarm of fire was turned In from box 23 at the comer of High and Spring streets, the alarm being occasioned by a fire in the stable just back of St Raphael's church. The fire 'was discovered by Owen McBreen and was burning brightly at the time. The depart ment responded promptly, but It was found impossible to save the stable, the entire structure being enveloped in flames when the machinery arrived. The stable was a handsome frame build ing and was the property of the Rev. Sid ley, pastor of St Raphael's church. Dr. J. W. Hulick rented the stable and kept his horse and buggy there. When the fire was discovered it had pro gressed too far to make it possible to save either the horse or the buggy and Dr. Hullck's fine driving horse and a new buggy were destroyed. A strenuous effort was made to save the horse but it was un successful. The almost human cries of the perishing animal were most pitiful to hear. It is supposed that the stable was set on fire by tramps who were sleep ing there. Dr. Hulick's loss consists of a horse, buggy and feed that he had laid In for the winter, the whole amounting to about S600. The loss on the stable Is about S250, which is fully insured. BOLD TRESPASSERS. Two Men Enter It. J, Hums1 Residence and Get WrltThnmped. Sunday evening about 7 oclock two men entered R. J. Bums's house No. 260 east Main street and went upstairs. Mr. Bums's mother-in-law heard them and ran down stairs and informed Mr. Bums. Ue hurried up stairs and found there two men who had proba' ly intended to go through the house One of the fellows had taken off his hoots in order to make as little noise as possible. Mr. Bums tackled the fellows and thumped one of them badly, threatening to shoot them if they made a particle of resistance. After he had nearly hammered the llfo out of one of them he let them go, the one who had remakd his boots going in such a nurry tnai ue ten n:s boots bed ind him. This morning the fellow had the presump tion go to Jtr. isurns anil renue.t him to return the boots.
