Elder, of Trinity Methodist Episcopal Church, have interested themselves in Murderer George Hettrick, and with Mrs. Seville Howard and Miss Laura Pierce, two religious workers, are preparing a petition to Governor Murphy, asking for a respite of thirty days, in which to enable the petitioners to present arguments to show that a commission should be appointed to inquire into the pris oner's mental condition. The Rev. Mr. Elder said: I think Hettrick is cither a most consum mate actor and fraud; or that he is mentally unbalanced. I saw him in his cell before his trial, and my opinion is that ho was in sane then, and is now. I am going to do all I can to have the commission appointed. Hettrick has given up hope of securing a stay of sentence, and apparently realizes that his life will pay the forfeit of his crime on April 4. He has already shown considerable religious fervor, and looks forward with pleasure to the daily visits of the Rev. Aloy sius Fish, of the Church of the Immaculate Conception, who is also Catholic chaplain of the stale Prison. Yesterday Hettrick wrote a letter to Letitia Smith, who was with him at the time of the tragedy In it he accused her of being the cause of the troubles, and told her that he did not want to speak to her or lay eyes on her again, lie threatened to make a statement from the .scaffold on the day of bis execution that she would not forget as long as she lives. lie learned that she was here last weoek to see him, and that Sheriff Atchiey has promised her an interview with him a week from to-morrow. He says he will refuse to see her. AMUSEMENTS. GRAND OPERA HOUSE. COR SIC PAYTON COMEDY CO.

Ojr»ler« IN GRACE i Ui In point of attendance at the regular services and the Sunday school sessions, yesterday was a banner day at Graci Methodist Episcopal Church At the Sunday school in the after noon .*.»o persons were present, which was very gratifying to the superin tendent, John S. Mullin. Jr. At the worship in the morning and evening the congregations were large, all the sealings being occupied at the night service. Miss Elda Idle, who is to manage and direct the new choir, sang at both services, and made a very pleas ing impression with her line voice and her accomplished handling of lier solos. Her enunciation is clear and her rich voice is full and strong, even to the highest notes. She sings with drainaticetTect, and her ability was manifest in her singing ''The Ninety and Nine, " by Campion, at the morning service. Following the sermon by the Rev. Dr. William Wirt King. Miss Idle sang "Come Home," an old Methodist hymn, and her interpretation of It was line. At the evening service, George N. Maris, organist, preceded the regular worship with an organ recital for lil'teen minutes, in which the mastery of the instrument was displayed. Miss Idle's solo was *•(>, Divine Redeemer, " by Gtionad, and follow ing the sermon, who is to be a member of the new choir, sang "Just For To-day," in splendid manner. Dr. King in the evening preached on "Faying the Fare," his text being from Jonah 1. .'5: "And lie paid the fare thereof." Dr. King related the biblical incident on which the text was based, and pointed out that although the fare was paid, some people might regard it as insignilicent while it was very important. He said that much life is made more of pedant l ies than of principes. Many a person may have a beautiful voice, but lack a good sou!, and many a person may have pleasing character istics, yet lack a solid character, Every person gets what he pays for, Dr. King said, or pays for what lie gets, The tiist statement may not always seem to he true, but it is the fault of the person who pays if lie does not get. what lie pays for. The second statement is certainly true. The Lord issues no complimen tary tickets, nor does lie conduct a bargain counter, for nothing furnishes a tield for all kinds of confidence men, gamblersand Miss May Taylor, Getting s 'thing t liieves. That new fever, recently out and dignified under that euphoni ous name of kleptomania is but another way of trying to gel: some thing for nothing. and is what, in the old-fashioned language, would be called stealing. Dr. King dec ared that persons could not get a Christian character unless they pay tho fare. Some go the Lord's counter and try to strike a bargain. T cheap counter. They are willing to pay, hut not pay enough. They arc willing to pray, but not pray long enough.
