Yesterday Forenoon He Held
a Salvation Army
People's Church Crowded
With People Interested
in Him.
Psople's Church Thronged
With the First Citizens
of St. Paul.
Gen. Booth arrived in St. Paul yester
day morning at 10 o'clock. Before noon
he held an executive '"consecration"
service at the People's church, which,
of course, was attended exclusively by
the half thousand Salvationists now in
the city. At the close of tha meeting
both Geu. Booth and his private secre
tary. Ciipt. Malau, of Italy, were tak«n
to the residence of Col. R. M. Newport,
whose guests they will be during the
general's visit.
Greeted by a l.artfo Audience— His
The afternoon Booth meeting at tho
People's at 2:30 yesterday brought to
gether all the people that the church
could accommodate. 'I he Salvation
Army was well represented, yet it was
chiefly confined to the front seats.
Many of the best citizens were to be
seen. In the choir loft was an appar
ent rfi'lecatiou from the army of her
Brittanic majesty. The red coats be
longed, however, to the vigorous band
of forty-five pieces, most of whom
hailed from Minneapolis. Upon the
platform sat a large number of officers.
The men's red jackets were frequently
hidden by more somber coats, but the
girls relieved their dark-blue costumes
by a broad band of red silk ribbon across
their Hallelujah bonnets, inscribed, in
Kilt, " Welcome to Our General."
Upon th? bosoms of both sexes
were Dinned likewise a gorgeous
silk badge, white for the staff
officers, red for Uie others, reading,
"Souvenir. '1 he World for God. Gen.
Booth Jubilee. 1844 1894," together with
a portrait ot the general, the United
States Hag and the army crest, with the
motto "blood and fire." The. youthful
beauty of the cadet girls was augmented
by their pretty opauUUs of silken cord in
yellow, red and blue combined. At
best. 500 Salvation Army soldiers were
present, of whom one-half were officers.
The latter had come from Michigan,
from Nebraska and from the whole
Northwest. The general's immediate
traveling party consists of Col. Lawiey,
A. D. C, London; Staff Capt. Malan.
private secretary, Italy; Capt. Taylor,
special correspondent for the English
War Cry. London; Maj. Hatpin, Phila
delphia: Maj. and Mrs. Still well, divis
ional officers, Minneapolis.
The genera!, when he appeared, was
givi-ied with wild applause from the
army, especially the lasses. His tali
twin bends only at intervals under his
advancing years, nor are his aristocratic
features as withered as the cheap por
traits would indicate. The lonz, nar
row face-, tho aquiline nose, the earnest
eyes, the concentrated expression, set off
by the louk gray hair, the pointed gray
beard, gave the countenance of the re
former of the enthusiast. The general's
voice, however, is pot that ot an orator,
it rs, and doubtless has always been,
thin, without much power, and full of
the nasal quality which sometimes con
fuses the Englishman of a certain shire
with thelJowu Easter of America.
In Ins speech he accented his con
clusions with decided nods of the head.
His gestures «*ere few. aud he seem*tt
to suppoit himself upon the reading
desk. He wore a long clerical coat of
black,with military frogs,the red jacket
showing beneath.
He began with a request for tho sing
ing of one of the special jubilee songs,
"Cleansing for Me." This was executed
with the army's usual zeal.the members
holding their arms aloft aud keeping
time. Later the general repioved some
timid soldiers for neglecting this en
thusiastic attitude.
Then Maj. Halpitt led in prayer, inter
rupted by the
Curious ManlfeMtatlons of the
meetings—manifestations which reveal
undoubted sincerely, but are singular
violations of conventional religious eti
quette—shouts of "Praise the LordlLord
Jesus!" long-drawn, plaintive cries of
"Fea-a! O Lord, A-a-men!"
Cot. Lawley prayed in turn, and in
creasine spirit was thrown into the next
hymn. "To Save a Poor Sinner Like
Me." Not a soldier's hand failed to go
Col. Lawley and Car/t. Taylor led iv
the singing, while Maj. Halpiu with an
English concertina lent valuable assist
ance from his seat iv the first row on the
The general began his address, taking
St. Paul to the Romans as his text:
"There is no condemnation to them that
are in Christ Jesus, nnd that walk not
after the Mesh, but after the spirit." He
asked for especial quiet in the church
on account of his hoarseness. He hoped
that the righteousness of the Lord
tuiifhi not b« talked about, sunir about,
but fulfilled-not in the futute, but now
—in London, in New York, iv St. PauJ.
He continued:
'•I speak today of the Christianity of
Christ. People ask. how am I to serve
the Lord? I'll begin with an illustration.
Suppose two inquiring strangers come
from Mars to learn about Christianity.
Should we refer them to the libraries—
to the million books upon theology?
No, surely. Should we send them to
the theological schools'.' It would take
too lout; for them to learn anything.
To the pulpits? The results would be
the same. To the homes of professed
Christians? I don't really think we
should. I say. no to Jesus Christ Him
self. Watch His life, His death. This
is the Christianity of Christ. If you
wish to learn this religion—(here the re
porter for a irToruirig journal came
softly down the aisle. He made no
noise, but the general, whose age and
responsibilities have made him a trifle
irritable, turned fiercely upon the
meek young man with the very
English exclamation: ■ "The press
of this country thinks it can
interrupt, interfere and meddle
with anything:") He then resumed his
statement of true Christianity. "There
is a plan that a child can follow. Bo a
Clsrist-maii, a Christ-woman. Have
first the spirit of Christ: next, his char
acter. Work from the loner to the
outer man. Every man's guiding pas
sion controls all his other sentiments,
like the sheaf in Joseph's dream. In
stead of pleasure, love of gain, let your
guiding passion be devotion to Christ.
[•"Allelulia" from Capt. Taylor. There
must be self-sacrifice. Imagine Christ
sending one of the arch-angels to sutler
and die in his place! Are you a tigher,
a worker? Do you listen meiely to the
word of God, or do you obey it?"
The meeting then closed with prayers
by the general auct by Capt. M&lau.

Christian Instruction, lie styled Gen.
Booth one of the greatest men of the
age, and the Army the greatest army
the world has evor seen. He then in
troduced the general, whose topic was
"The-Origin and Work of the Salvation
Army and the Darkest England
"Twenty -nine years ago," said Gen.
Booth, "I stood in East London. Within
one mite of me 1,000,000 people lived,
of whom X per cent knew nothing of
Christianity. There 1 consecrated my
self, there began the Salvation Army.
At first there were but three of us -a
doorkeeper, a collector and myself.
After twenty-nine yearsour flag Hies in
over forty countries. We have 11,000
officers, nearly 2,000,000 members and
27 newspauers. The circulation of our
papers and periodicals exceeds 50,000,

work in the streets. The soldiers re
belled. [Amen! from oue of the choir
Kills.] The army organization came
naturally upon us. We do not con
sider it essen tial."
Referring to the people among whom
the army works, he mentioned the
hungry people of whom America has no
conception—of the slums, where a lurtre.
family is born, lives, eats and sleeps in
one small room.
As to the work of the women soldiers,
whom Cardinal Manning had called the
"slum angels," he gave a dramatic
account of a family rescued by the
army—the woman a match seller, the
husband a drunkard. "The drunkard
in general." he said, "is the helpless
victim of the boa constrictor ot habit.
The poor lost woman of the streets is
generally forced into her position. The.
criminal out of jail has but tour courses
— first, suicide; second, starvation;
third, work, which uo one will give
him, or fourth, stealing, into which he
Is pushed once more.*'
The general's great scheme of reform
includes: 1. The deliverance, not the
amelioration,of the individual. 8. Di
rect grappling with the unfortunates.
3. Right classification of poverty—not
into the deserving and the undeserving,
but the recognition that all must be
helped that are in need. 4. The neces
sity that all that are able should either
pay, or work for what they receive
from the army. 5. Colonization on
farms. Of unfortunate girls in Loirdon
he stated that it costs but $16 to rescue
oue, and 'J5 per cent are permanently
reformed. The army had received
£170,000, and expended £2-20.000.
The exercises ended with a French
hymn by Capt. Malan, accompanied by
Maj. Halpiu, and on motion of Rev. Mr.
Wile.ox a risiug vote of thanks was
awarded to Attorney General Childs.
There will b« an officers' meeting to
day at 10:30 a. m. at the People's church.

Though the Hostelriea Were Pull
of Guests.
The hotels ot the city were very quiet
yesterday. Of course all furnished
splendid bills of fare. Globe readers
need not be told that, as the menu cards
of the leading hostelriea published yes
terday morning, showing tho choice
edibles with which they tickled the pal
ateß of patrons,were proof positive. Even
the politicians and those seeking to pull
atrings for soft snaps in the coming leg
islature were conspicuous by their ab
sence. It was evident they were not
bent on "wandering from their own
fireside," but were at home attending
to the dismemberment ot turkey. Of
course there were a lot of transients
who were too far away from their own
vine and tiir tree to leave the city, who
staid over. They knew a acoon thing
when they saw it, and so spent the day
here, thankful tor good fare.
Col. Welz, of the Ityan, and his part
ner, Dr. Fry, had a Rental look about
them that made all feel at home. Col.
Jeff Carson, of the Merchants', was even
more friendly than usual, if that be
possible. Col. Monfort. at the Wind
sor, who is a tpyical Boniface, had a
glow of hospitality about him that made
every one feel comfortable. Mine Host
Banker, of the Hotel Metropolitan, was
even more cordial than it is his wont to
be—hard as it is to say it. Landlords

the arrangement of the figures was such
that each time the gentlemen non only
changed partners but the couples
dancing opposite also changed, which
gave the ieader several assistant?. The
last figure was the most novel. The
young ladies wheeled in a huge turkey,
made of paper <»ache, and under her
wings the favors were concealed, dainty

200 Feet Wide on the Mississippi
* Itivcr 100.
The track committee of the Capital
City Driving club staked off a straight
track 200 feet wide oil the river above
AY abash* street bridge yesterday after
noon. The ice was not by any menus
safe, varying from one to four inches,
and parts not frozen over. Messrs.
Bruggeman. Schroeder and Price, with
three assistants, took the chances of a
cold bath in order to secure the truck,
but provided themselves with sundry
floats and other paraphernalia in case
or such happening, and also attached
themselves, Alpine fashion, with a rope
to prevent losing the body or any of the
membra by submersion, dsath from
fright, shock or drowning- Rescuing
parties were stationed along the banks
with opera glasses, prepared to telo
phoub the hook and ladder company in
case or necessity. Mr. BruggemAu se
cured an empty keg as a life preserver.
The rest of the party kicked on account
or it not being filled, but Mr. B. argued
that such might cause blind staggers
and endanger the safety of the members
when staking near open .spaces. The >
excuse was accepted, but warning was
given not to rep.-at the offense on any
future occasion. Th? work proved hard
and arduous. Overcoats were removed,
and the risk added zest 10 the task.
The only one not appreciating it was
the horse used to convey the wagon
containing the necessary stakes, who,
considering himself neglected, wan
dered off among the willow bushes,
where the committee found him wedged
fast, necessitating unhitching and giv
ing the members the pleasure of back
ing fie -wagon out, which proved no
easy task. Refresh me nts were served
by Mr. Bruggeman, when the party
It Meets Today to Consider the
The capitol commission meets this
forenoon to examiue the report of the
expert architects upon the capitol plans
submitted. Chatming Seubury, mem
ber and secretary of the commission,
gives it out that it is not likeiy that the
commission will at this meeting decide
definitely upon the plan for the new
capitol. He predicts that it will take
several meetings of the commission to
settle the mutter.
However, it may turn out that the
matter is scaled at this session. The
architects from outside cities who have

Gratitude Becoming to the
Soul — Disasters Have
Been Abundant.;
There Has Been a Marvelous
Demonstration of Di
vine Laws. A-
Dr. Egbert's Thanksgiving sermon
yesterday forenoon was in pact as fol
Gratitude is as becoming 10 the soul
as beauty is becoming to the soul; is as
becoming to the soul as perfume is to
the violet; is as becoming to th» soul as
perfectness is becoming to God. It is a
part or every tru»» nature, and the man
who is not thankful, who is not habitu
ally thankful, whose very soul is nut
robed in thankfulness, loses not only
the. mightiest inspiration for this life,
but loses the sure hope of the everlast
ing lire. Be yo thankful.
lint the sorrows and disasters! Every
y»ar has enough. But this year! It is
a great pain and a great sorrow for any
of us, by a violation of the laws of na
ture, to suffer a defeat or a deformity;
but are we not thankful for the surgery,
especially the skillful surgery, that can
come in and make a remedy? The pain
is here— of the mightiest powers on
earth; sorrow is here—one of the most
absolutely necessary things we know of
to make man meat. Even the Master
was made perfect through suffering.
John Howard had to suffer in prison
before he became beautiful in his char
acter as the reformer of prison life.
The Netherlands had to suffer < untold
sorrow and pain, even unto death, to
make faithfulness, truth, riglitousuess,
freedom, liberty, trust in God a
part of heroism and true life.
Sorrow has done too much of good
in the earth tor us to be hasty in
our condemnation.' But we are not
ofttu thankful for sorrow. Sorrow will
coins-, God or no God. faith or no faith;
bin ask the Christian father, the Chris
tian husband, the Christian child, the
Christian wife, the Christian mother,
whose tenderest feelings are so often
touched so keenly, whether there be
thankfulness in the midst of sorrow.
They will tell you that now the grave
is to them Hie window of heaven, that
all of these things are not in the hands
of a grasping fate, a remorseless law—a
thins that would be sorrow without
hope— that ail things are within the
presence of a Father, with the love of a
Father, with the pity of a Father, with
in the infinite helpfulness of a Father,
and that Father with His wisdom, skill
and infinite love surely has a plan, a
power, a method, by which out of it all
He will brine ihe.soul in divinest beauty
because of it.
Tiic Li 'SkouNOf the Year.
But this year! There are two or three
suggestions 1 want to make of thank
fulness even lor this disastrous year.
And 1 thin* to some minds this year has
hail more suggestion* for tbaniuulne&s
than any year for many. There has
been a : marvelous demonstration of
some divine laws and ■ very plain sug
gestion of some certain consequences.
"Whatsoever a man sowetn that shall
he reap was never more certainly
demonstrated thin during the last eight
een months. And tiicre is no law which
a man needs to le.-'.rn vvim greater cer
tainly and greater accuracy than that—
In know that every seed "be plants in
his feelings, in I;is thought, in his work
ing. in his business, in political life, in
religious lift", everywhere, is just as ab
solutely certain to bear its own harvest
as that the sun is to shine iiuits appro
priate time. We have learned that
law. And we hove learned a little more
— that the righteousness which exalteth
a nation is righteousness in all the busi
ness, in all the promises of government,
in all the political administration of
government, la every department of
life, aud the man who learns not that
during this time of testing and of illus
tration deserves not the name of man.
The man who gets out of this year only
money, only safety from failure, who
gets out of it with merely a clean Repu
tation, fails of its richest power and
greatest gift. The man who does not
take incroase of moral life out of his
business fa. in business, however
much money he make?. It is God's
method of educating him, it is God's
method of moral development; and the
business of our land has more to do with
the moral character of it than any other
power that is at work in it.
A L«-***oii for Business Men.
It is a {rreat sift from God if our busi
ness men will learn that there can be
no unrighteousness of method in busi
ness without danger. And that lesson
has been very vividly illustrated. Many
a rotten institution has been cast down.
Many a wild speculation has been over
thrown. Many a man has been halted
and made to face the question. "What
is the cause of this?" Disaster comes
not alone. It comes from preceding
sowiues. It does not spring out of the
earth or the heavens. It springs out of
man's doing, man's thinking and man's
desiring. And blessed is the man who
has learned the lesson or it in these
days, and the man who has not learned
it, However much ho may have gotten
together cf "'tilings," is like the man
who was felting forests and mounting
cannon and preparing ships for the pro
tection of his life and then found there
was no man left to use. them, lie is
losing his life while gaining the sub
1 think that one of the greatest rea
sons for thankfulness in our land this
year is the fact that men are seeking as
never before to find the cause of evil
and corruption, and how they may be
removed, and as never before the moral
sense of this nation has been aroused to
tako hold of the problems, it has nut
been long since there were only a few
who believed that th« greatest spot of
corruption in our land could not be de
feated and overthrown. The moral
sense of our greatest city was aroused,
it took hold of the- problem, and the
moral convictions of the best stood In
battle array against the merclnary in
tmesis of the worst, and righteousness
won. It was not a political battle, ex
cept as politics were the weapons of
righteousness, and the whole laud
triumphed in that tight. And the man
who does not give thanks to God tor that
victory is ueither a patriot nor a Chris
