JOHNSTON OFFICIATES And Preaches an Appropriate Ser mon to the Newly Con- tinued. • A class of thirty-eight boys and girls received the sacrament yesterday morning at the annual confirmation exercises of the First Swedish Luther- an Evangelical church.corner of Wood- ward avenue and John street. The congregation, one of the largest in the city, was joined by many strangers, and every pew and every aisle was filled. Nearly 2,000 persons were pres ent. The church was decorated with palms, potted plants and cut flowers. The choir of twenty was led by Prof. Wold, while Peter Johnson presided at the organ. The candidates for c:n- frrmation included 16 boys and 22 girls, all "about fourteen or fifteen years of age. The boys were attired in black, and the girls wore pretty gowns of delicate white fabrics, with corsage bouquets. The class sat in a circle about the pulpit. The services thai followed were conducted in Swedish After a hymn by the entire congre gation the pastor, Rev. L. A. John- ston, read the twenty-sixth chapter of the Song of Solomon, beginning, "Judge me, O Lord, for I have walked in mine integrity." The confirmation class next rose to their feet and replied in unison to the pastor's questions upon the Lutheran catechism. Their answers came read- ily, for during the past six months they have been receiving weekly in- struction in the catechism and collat eral Bible history. Before any child can ba confirmed in the Lutheran church he must be able to both read and write. Thus it is that so few Scandinavian immigrants to America are ever found illiterate. Six of the thirty-eight children examined yester- day, although Swedish, had become such good Americans that they were not proficient in their fathers' tongue. They gave their answers in English, and were examined individually. A hymn was sung by the choir. Still standing, the class was next con- firmed. They were asked if they un- derstood the nature of the renounce ment that they must make, and of the burdens they must assume. They were - agreed. to take up the duties of the true Christian. They knelt and the pastor prayed for and with them. Then he led the congregation in a prayer for the children, that the latter might be sustained in the sacrifice that they had taken upon themselves. While all remained upon their knees the pastor stretched forth his hands and invoked the benediction, saying:, "Herren wal- signe eder. oeh beware eder: Herren upplysfe sitt ansigte ofwer eder, och ware eder nadig: Herren wande sitt ansigte till eder, och gifwe eder en ewig frid, i Guds, Fadrens och Sonons : och helige Andes, namen. Amen." — "The Lord bless thee and keep thee. The Lord make His face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee. The Lord lift His countenance upon thee, and give thee peace." Each member of the class was here- upon presented with a copy of the Bible and with a book of holy reading. The latter was a present from the pas- tor, and its contents were of a nature peculiarly suited to the situation of one newly confirmed. Following a hymn sung by the whole congregation, the pastor delivered a brief sermon upon the text from Mat- thew xi., 28, 29: "Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I •- will give you rest: take my yoke upon you and learn of me, for I am meek and lowly in heart, and ye shall find rest unto your souls." . 7 ",'•?'. Mr. Johnston spoke of the Import- ance of the time spent in the confirma tion school; and then, dividing his text into three divisions, based upon the words, "come," "take" and "find," he continued: I "Consider the word 'come.' There are three ways by which you can come to Christ. First, there is the Word of God, which points out the path. Second, . there is self-examina tion. Peering down into our souls, we can detect the impediments to a per- feet communion with the Savior. Once discovered, they may be removed by conscientious and continued - effort. Third, there is the path of humble prayer. What one cannot do by his own unaided efforts, he can usually accomplish with the aid of the Father. "Consider the word 'take.' You should take Christ as your teacher, as your Savior, and as your King. Take the yoke of His doctrine, the yoke of obedience, and the yoke of confession. To take the yoke of Christ is to oast away the yoke of pride, of penurious- ness, of v.-crldliness. You * will find that it will cost you something to take up the yoke of Christ, but it will cost still more to take up the yoke of sin. "And what ■* as to 'find?' You will find peace for your souls. How great . is this promise, and how infinite its blessing! The cares of business, of do- mestic life, the sorrow and pain of ill- ness, and the heart-breaks of bereave- ment—these, all these are to be soft- ened and obliterated, for to your souls Is promised peace, and that, by the Prince of Peace, the Savior, the Com- forter!" The confirmation class sang a beautiful song setting forth the safety of the refuge that they had just found within the "church. Then, as they kneeled in a circle about him, they re | ceived from the pastor their first sac- rament. He placed in the mouth of each the consecrated wafer, and, re- turning, he gave to each the sacred wine to drink. .'.•.'. vy,?: -7 There was a hymn sung by the con- gregation, and thirty-eight more souls g had been joined to the body of Christ's "• church. -•:' y7 /?/>* 77 - The children confirmed were: Eliza- beth Noren, Ruth Peterson, Tilda An . derson, Mary Anderson, Gerda Person, Elsa Johnson, Hulda Johnson,.

CROP OUTLOOK FINE In All Section* Penetrated l»y the Northern Pacific. **//". The crop bulletin issued by the Northern Pacific for the week 7 just ended reports crops of all* kinds in the most thriving condition in all sections penetrated by the road and." its branches. The following* is -taken from the bulletin:;.-.. . .7, -.; ?- Minnesota -Division.— The- .warm weather of the oast few days, together with the numerous fine showers, has stimulated the growth of all kinds of grain wonderfully.- ' • ' -'..7 ? '. Little Falls and Dakota Branch— The outlook for good crops. along this branch is very promising. All kinds of cereals are growing splendidly, and the recent warm weather is bringing up potatoes and corn rapidly. Nor them Pacific, Fergus and Black Hills Branch— Reports from this ter ritory could not be of a much more encouraging tenor. Warm weather and plenty of rain have restored grain and vegetation to about the top notch of perfection, wheat in particular. which farmers say has not looked as well for five years, and is considerably in advance of last year. Manitoba Division, South of Boun dary—Prospects for good crops in the Red river valley remain favorable. During the past week copious rains fell, invigorating growing grain ma- terially, after the recent cold snap, and It now presents a remarkably healthy appearance. Fargo and Southwestern Branch- All kinds of grain are doing well, and developments show that more benefit than harm has resulted from the cold wave of ten days ago. Dakota Division— The last three or four days have been all that could be Pythian Social Session. On Monday evening last Capitol Lodge No. 51, K. of P., held the sec- ond of the social sessions which are becoming a great feature in * Pythian circles. The Cattle hall was well filled, and a most enjoyable evening spent. The music rendered by Ryder's Man- dolin orchestra was, as- usual, of ex- cellent quality. Francis Jenkins gave some comic songs in full costume, a la Bill Hoey, which brought down the house, and kept ths singer on his feet. R. D. Saplne rendered two or three ballads in splendid voice, and met with a hearty encore. Mr. Convery, a member of Webster, also assisted ably, while Brother Sam Whitney gave his experiences in a recitation, showing how he accumulated much gold in Cal ifornia, how he lost it, and acquired in its stead a great thirst— for more! Next Monday there will be work in the first rank. Mad Dog Captured in Time. Dr. Stone reported last night that another mad dog was discovered at 1077 Reaney street. The animal be- longs to John L.

NEW YORK, June 2.— The French line steamer La Bourgogne, Capt. Leboeuf, from Havre May 25, came in- to port this morning with all her flags at half-mast on account of the death of Secretary Gresham. Her officers reported two accidents during the voy- age. Shortly before the . Bourgogne sailed from Havre two saloon cabin passengers came on board. Their names do not appear on the ship's printed passenger list. Both were young men named -Lawrence. On the morning of the 27th John Lawrence, aged twenty-six, was promenading the saloon deck on the port side. . He leaned over the rail and his hat fell overboard. In attempting to regain it he lost his balance and fell into the sea. An alarm was given and the ship's engines were stopped. A boat, was lowered and proceeded in search the man, but he was never seen again. He probably got foul of the propeller. j and was killed. The accident cast a gloom over the saloon passengers dur- ing the remainder of the voyage. Mr. Lawrence's brother would not see .any- one on his arrival at quarantine.., His fellow passengers stated that he was greatly grieved over the loss of his brother. Flushing, ' L. 1., is believed to be the home of the young man. The loss of Mr. Lawrence was soon followed by another fatality. On the morning of May 31 a seaman named August Guillard, while attending to his duties on the hurricane deck, fell from the rail." The cry, "Man over board," was promptly given by. a pas senger to the officer on the bridge. The engines were again stopped, and a lifeboat was quickly manned and lowered. Every effort was made to locate the man, but nothing of him was seen except his cap, which was picked up by one of the boat's crew. For the third \ time La Bourgogne was stopped on the Ist inst. at 7:40 p. m., when off the Davis South Shoal (Nantucket), the lookout having sight ed a steamer flying signals of distress. The course of the steamship .was im mediately altered and she bore down to the vessel, which was found to be the British steamship ; Enchantress, Capt. Ritchie, from Mediterranean ports for New York. .7 The . captain . re ported that the cylinder head was broken, and that the 7 accident^ which was beyond repair, happened in the early, morning hours. 7? He requested the commander lot' the La Bourgogne to send Immediate assistance on reach ing port.' The disabled steamer was in no' danger. She had her sails set, and was heading to the southward, -with a light breeze, from •south-southwest. The' Enchantress sailed "■ from "Triste April 26, : via Palermo, May 10. ". She registers 1*699 tons. THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: MONDAY MORNING, JUNE 3. 1895; LOVE, HOT WHL ELDER FIFIELD, OF THE AD- VENTISTS DENOUNCES «-* '.yy PAGAN IDEA." RECONCILE MAN TO GOD, SAYS HE, RATHER THAN AT- TEMPT TO RECONCILE GOD ; ; TO MAN. MAN, THE MASTER CREATION, Was Dr. Paulson's Subject— eral Strong; Sermons by Oth- eral Strong- Sermon** by Oth er Men. "And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission" were the words of the text an nounced by Elder Fifield at the Ad ventists' camp yesterday at 10:30 a. m. The speaker protested against the Pagan idea that has become well-nigh universal, viz.: That Christ died to reconcile the Father to us. The re ligious world today, with but few ex ceptions, teaches that God was very angry with us because of sin, and but for the intercession of His Son, would have destroyed man, whereas, in truth, "God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believed in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." The sufferings and death of Christ were not a manifestation of the wrath of God, but rather an amazing illus tration of His infinite boundless love for fallen man. Says Jesus: - "The Father loveth you." God does not need to be reconciled to us, for His great loving heart yearns for His erring children. But we need to be "reconciled to God." -And this 'is done for us "by the death of His Son" when we are crucified with Him. We must be "crucified with Him" not be cause God is angry with us and wants to kill us, but because He loves us, and wants us to live eternally. Monk ery separates itself from the world and isolates itself in convents and monasteries, for fear of contam ination, seeking thus to become holy, and so miserably fails that Draper says that "the degree of degradation from the dignity of a man became the measure of the merit of the monk." But Christ left the shining courts of heaven where all was glory, peace, righteousness and joy, with no dan ger or possibility of contamination, and descended into this dark world reeking with sin and pollution, to up lift and save poor, degraded, fallen man. And true Christianity does the same thing now. It seeks the lost, the fallen and the outcast "for by so doing, thou shalt both save thyself and them that hear thee." **/' ;'_* . MAN THE MASTERPIECE. At 2:30 p. m. Dr. Paulson continued his series of lessons, taking as his sub ject "Man, the Masterpiece of the Cre ation of God." Man, as he came from the hand of his Creator, was symmet rical, beautiful and faultless in form, and perfect In his entire . being-^the Image and the likeness ..of God, and notwithstanding' the ravages ,; that centuries of violation of the laws of his being have wrought, he yet stands forth as the crowning work of the Great Creator. The marvelous work of God is nowhere more wonderfully displayed than. In the human body. The Psalmist truly says, "I am fear fully and wonderfully made; great and marvelous are Thy works." .., , At 4 p. m., after an intermission of only a few minutes, the services were continued,- with Elder Shultz, of Ne braska, in the desk. "Thou Shalt Love Thy Neighbor as Thyself," were the words of his text. ' Love is the very atmosphere of heaven. Love is the principle that actuates the sinless dwellers there, "God is love," and His every act is but the outworking of this attribute of His nature. To be like Himself is God's requirement of man. . God wants our love, and so He first loves us, thus begetting in our hearts love for Himself, for love is of God. How may we learn to love God? Not by trying as many are doing. How does one learn to love his father, mother, husband, wife, brother or sis ter? By trying? No! To know them is to love them. So it is with God. To know Him is to love Him. "Ac quaint now thyself with Him and be at peace." JlS'Sy But how may one love his neighbor, who may be absolutely depraved and utterly unlovable? How may one love his enemies? Not by trying, but, rather, by receiving into the heart Him who does love His enemies— Jesus Christ, the friend and lover of sinners. - "TRUE AMERICANISM" "TRUE AMERICANISM" was the subject of Elder Flfleld's dis course at 7:30 p. m. "Proclaim liberty throughout all the land, unto all the Inhabitants thereof" (Lev. 25, 10), were the thrilling, inspiring and appropriate words of his text. -After, paying a touching and eloquent tribute to the emblem of American freedom and lib erty, and the noble men who gave it to the breeze, and who have kept It waving by many a hard-fought and . dearly-won battle, he proceeded to de fine the terms, "Liberty and freedom." He briefly sketched the terrible exper iences by which our ancestors learned what freedom and liberty really are, and how to appreciate and prize them. Liberty embraces the right to worship, j or not to worship, the true God or any false god. The framers of the consti tution recognized this inherent right of man, and prohibited congress from legislating on religious matters. CHILIANS TALK WAR. T CHILIANS TALK WAR. Relations With Argentine Becom- ing- Seriously Strained. - WASHINGTON, June 2. — Reports from the Argentine Republic show that there is a. very active war party which Is agitating tho prospect of a war with Chile. The Argentine boundary com missioners have returned from Chile i and reported satisfactory progress.but the Argentine press keeps up the talk of war, and the j report received here adds: "In the present critical state of feel ing any such efforts on the part of our press, or of our public men,' are to be sincerely deplored, some street row in a border town, some petty insult to either, of the national flags, and we would see the experience of a quarter of a century ago repeated." The \ Ar gentine government ' seems . to regard . hostilities as possible, and is taking every step of precaution.

He is act ing badly, according to reports from Cincinnati, no doubt feeling that there are enough charges hanging over him, and all in shape to be brought home, to keep him in prison until long after a ' new century dawns. :: Immediately. after being arrested as stated in the Globe of Friday (ex clusively), Woodward . assumed a - surly manner and has been as dis agreeable as a man in his circum- stances can be. He sits in his cell with his head down and hat pulled over "his eyes. The police say he- is the meanest-looking fellow that has been locked up in many a day. He ' refuses to talk to any one. He was before Chief " Deltsch Friday morning, but he would not say a word. It is evident that the gang of which he is a member expected to get in its work good and strong, because other "business letters" have turned up. .. Samuel' Wells, of Wells & Co., No. 67 Vine street, called at police headquar- , ters and said that he was to have been • one of the victims. He said that on May 18 he received the following letter: "Chicago, May 17, 1895. "Samuel Wells & Co.: You have evl- j dently heard of country editors. taking cordwood for subscription. I am an. M. D., and have taken thirty-seven pounds of goosefeathers for profes- : sional services. Would like to sell them if you will pay a reasonable price. Truly yours, ! "G. B. B. ELLIOTT." Wells answered the letter. . A few . days later another letter was received containing a money order for $12. This was followed by another letter, saying ■ that the order had been sent by mis- take, and to please mall check for the amount. Wells did so, and a few days ago a young man walked into the store and had the check cashed. Wells \ saw." Woodward, and thinks he is the man who was In the store. The police are now of the opinion that one man did the forging, and that "Dr. Elliott" is the man. Woodward is simply the man who was to pass the checks, or, as they are called in police * circles, the "layer down." ; Another intended victim was the firm, of Joseph. Maguire & Co., dealers in tailors' trimmings to Cincinnati. The other day a well-dressed man called at the store and introduced himself as: Dr. Elliott, of the Orphans' Home.

BACCALAUREATE SERMON ON THE NEED FOR SELF-SAC- RIFICING CITIZENS. CONSECRATED MEN AND WOMEN. Advice and Congratulations to the. Students Who Are Abont to Graduate. r : Commencement week at Hamiine university has always been an inter esting event, and is more so this year than ever. S*. yr The baccalaureate sermon was de livered yesterday morning to a very large audience of attentive and in terested listeners, by the president, Dr. George H. Bridgman. The chapel was elegantly decorated and the pulpit was occupied by the faculty and honored guests, among them. the venerable Dr. Brooks, who led in prayer. ;,7', ? i The theme of the sermon. was self renunciation, the law of self-preserva tion, and the secret of usefulness. The text was from John, 12:24, "Except a grain of wheat fall into the ground and die it remaineth alone, but if it die it bringeth forth much- fruit." -> 7 7- "These words,", said the preacher, "seem to have been a quotation from the Greek philosopher of that day. It is always of the greatest -importance to be conversant with the environ ments of the Savior when we wish to ponder on His sayings. On one of the few gala days of His life on earth; when the multitude crowded around Him and sang hosannas. His disciples informed Him that certain Greeks were seeking Him. Jesus, in making Himself known to them, did so in lan guage familiar to them. Thus bring ing Himself to the region of their own belief, He could place His great life in the midst Of their great thinkings. It is a comforting thought that Jesus should thus come to the thoughts and life of all classes of people. The Savior compares Himself to the grain of wheat. His humiliation, suf ferings, and death . He likens to the grain sown. in the ground, which de composes and brings forth abundant fruit. He would teach that for us the law of spiritual life and power and fruition is the same. "If a man choose to come after 'Me let him deny himself and. take -up hi 3 cross and follow Me: for whosoever shall choose to save him self, shall lose himself for My sake, shall find himself."- In other words, as another has said, Christ would have us understand, that while: the- most glorious consequences for. Himself and others would come from abjuring, His own will in favor of that of His Father, like tremendous issues hang upon our refusal, or consent to tread in His steps. ;,The world's great need today is cultured, consecrated men and wor n who are willing to live * '. <■ yy :-.- UNSELFISH LIVES, 'SSi, I who are willing to make sacrifices- order that the burdens of their fellow men may not fall so heavy upon them. We have- plenty today who can spin fine theories about ethics, and far too few who are willing to imitate the example of Christ in their daily lives, j The marr who lives only , for . him- self, who' struts through ; the world de- manding rights and declaring his in- dependence, will soon hw» no rights to demand and will s*--**r hav-3 to con- fess his dependence upon all. 1., tell you : that this * modern * cry of "My rights and your duties" -must be changed before men get the blessings that are desirable for humanity's chil dren. Our cry should be not my rights and your duties, but rather my duties and your rights. Secular history? is full of illustrations in point. The con- quering nations have always -been those recognizing this law of sacrifice, and the pages of Christian history are covered with - the najnes of men : and .women who counted not their lives dear ,unto themselves that thus they might be workers together with God and instuments in His hands in the salvation of their fellow men. To give one's life for his fellow men Is not necessarily to die for- them, but to be willing to die if need be. - -Those noble veterans who lived through the civil war, and who still live to tell of battles fought and vie- tories won, just as truly laid down their lives for their country as did those who actually lost their lives and whose graves a grateful nation has so recently covered with flowers.

Stephens, a counterfeiter, has been re- leased from the penitentiary under somewhat romantic circumstances. With his wife, he was brought to the penitentiary Jan. 28, 1892, from Ala- bama. He was sentenced to five years, while his wife received one year for complicity In his crime. After Mrs. Stephens was released, by the expira tion of her sentence, she called fre quently upon her husband, and the pair seemed very affectionate. She told the officials that she was remain- ing in Columbus, so as to be near her husband during the remainder of his Incarceration. About a year ago Mrs. Stephens ceased her visits. It was as- certained by her husband that she had become Infatuated with another man. Finally she paid another visit to Ste phens and told him she intended to se- cure a divorce. This was an easy mat- ter, inasmuch as the fact that her husband was a convict was sufficient grounds. She married again soon after securing a divorce. In the meantime Stephens opened up a correspondence with an old flame in Alabama, who is a woman of considerable wealth, and he is to marry her as soon as he ar- rives at his old home. ■-*' •*,"" HIS JIEGK PEHIIi.

The negro was dragged towards the tree and the rope was hastily thrown over the limb. There was no opportunity for prayer. It is doubtful if the negro would have taken advantage of it anyway. He was too scared to pray. He had no time to pray. He was too busy think- ing. In an instant more half a dozen pairs of hands grasped the slack end of the rope and Osborne dangled In the air. His body began to twitch convul sively. At this instant a woman fell on her kneas and pleaded with the men to spare the fellow's life. Re- luctantly the men listened, and then lowered the half-dead negro to the ground. He suffered a dozen deaths In that brief instant he dangled around In the atmosphere. When he was able to stand he was tied securely and led down the middle of the road to the Rondo station and given into the hands ■of Capt. Lowell. When Ketchell and Mr. Thompson had related the affair, Capt. Lowell got Osborne in his pri vate office and ran him down the in- terrogation line. Tha fellow was thin and wiry, and stands apparently at five feet ten Inches and weighs 150 •pounds. He was dressed .in a dirty pair of overalls . and a ragged blus shirt. He had two coats on before he started on that mad run over the fields, but shed them en route. He admitted plainly to Capt. Lowell and the Globe that he had entered the - house for the purpose of assault, and denied- any other intention. He had not recovered from his fright, and was very nervous and fidgety while being questioned. -No firearms or knives i were found *-■- upon his person. The marks of the rope were still • plainly visible on his throat" and wrists, and he rubbad his neck carefully while he stcod there. There was the faintest shadow of a smile on his face when Ire turned to the Globe reporter, .who asked him if his neck worried him. ' He talked in good English and had very little of the dialect of the South- crn negro. He said he had come from Tennessee, and had served time in the state's prison there j JJ. FOR BURGLARY. "What was your business?" asked Capt. Lowell. • "I am a waiter by profession," he re- plied. . sSyi A "Where did you work ast?" "The last two weeks I was extra waitah at de West hotel in Minneap olis." /?: 7 ."What! Did you wait on the table with those clothes?" asked Capt. Lowell, pointing to his dirty overalls and torn shirt. "I tent mah best clothes to Chicago," he answered, glibly," "an' was a tryin' ter get money enough te.r follow 'em." When told that he was lying he only grinned and said nothing. He said ; he had been in Minnesota for about five weeks, but this was his first day in St. Paul. During Saturday night, he said, he had slept in a vacant house near the scene of his attempted crime, and was walking in to the city to ob- tain breakfast when the little cottage caught his eye and the idea of entering it entered his head. "You are a bold kind of a villain," said the captain. The negro only smiled. - He was led back to his cell. He tells an untruth when he says yes- terday was his first day in St. Paul. Emmett Thompson, the fifteen-year- I old son, of A. M. Thompson, saw the j negro hanging around the neighbor | hood on Friday and Saturday. He had ! been seen by others in that neighbor j hood, and undoubtedly acquainted i himself with the habits and movements of the Ketchell sisters. The way he went at his attempted crime is proof sufficient of that. On his person Capt. Lowell found a t bunch of keys with a skeleton key at- I tached; a black skull cap and a pair of raised eyeglasses, or goggles, often used for a disguise. He is medium black in color, has a smooth face,- is I tall and angular and very glib. with his tongue. He is a badly frightened man, in spite of his assumption -of good humor and sang froid. He ran. all of a mile and a half before he was caught. Ketchell's feet were somewhat cut and torn, but he says he can stand it. -.- ?yy/-?

There was no other sickness on board during the voyage. Deputy Health Officer Sanborn boarded the steamer,. and, on Investigation, deemed it prudent to detain her for disinfect- ing and cleansing.

Bethlehem church, at the corner of Bethlehem church, at the corner of Pleasant avenue and Ramsey street, last evening was filled to the doors, not only with parishioners and friends, but also with a large number of mem- bers, of socialistic societies and others interested in the social question. Rev. Niclaus Bolt's sermon was well ad- vertised, throughout the city, and in deed if eloquence counts for anything the young minister exceeded all his previous efforts. He no doubt has de- voted much of his time to the study of the socialistic problems; he is deep ly interested in the welfare and the future of the workingmen; his words are of consolation and of solace to them, and therefore, it is decidedly interesting to listen to one of his talks of the present position of those who earn their livelihood by the sweat of their brows. Last evening's sermon, "Socialism In the Fervor of a Pentecostal Spirit," was based on the text. Acts ii., 44 and 45, "And sold their possessions, ids. and parted them to all men as every man had need." He said: "Pentecost, this grand day, is the birthday of the Christian church. Jesus came to kindle the fire of Chris tianity, and on this day succeeded in his purpose. The entire Christian world celebrates today that sublime anniversary. The power and the Holy Ghost descended unto the disciples, and mark the result; it is truly won derful. In the aomplishments sub- sequently only can the power which came among those simple, humble men be known. One of the POWERS OF THE PENTECOST POWERS OF THE PENTECOST we can readily recognize in the text. When we follow tlje origin of the church we cannot fall to perceive in wonderful beauty the pentecostal con gregation. It is a natural event. The more thoughtfulness there is expended on the subject the more realistic does it appear before our eyes." Rev. Bolt at great length discussed the periods which have elapsed be- tween the birthday of the Christian era and the reformation; the achievements of Christianity in a social way; the work of Martin Luther, in the direc tion of reforming the standing of re ligion and its relation to socialism, until our own time. He feared that the importance of this question had little; if ever, occupied the minds of thinkers until about twenty years ago. .Pulpit and other orators devoted very little of their time to learning ; the true position and condition of the workingman. "In view of thi3 fact," said he, "it is quite impossible to conceive that many claim that the social question should not be discussed from the pulpit; or that the church lias positively nothing to. do with tbe solving of the social question. When we look at this so cialism of today it must fill us with shame, while considering and study ing the lesson of this day, that Chris- tianity had not before taken up the social question. At all times has the church been accused, and with the greatest bitterness, and treated with the severest contempt by members of the ranks of workingmen, because It is asserted that brotherhood as taught by the Christian church is only a sham. only on the lips of the Christian and not in his heart. These are, I assure you, hard words, but they are never- theless true. The workingmen claim that the church strives to .content a hungry man with consoling him and assuring him of relief in the life to come. More an the reproaches cf others and outsiders does the spirit of the Holy Ghost punish us, and in the church today many are becoming con scious of the neglect; and a fresh spir- it, a new life, begins to make itself manifest. • The church should be more considerate, bscause in devoting itself to the interests of the laborers it will move in that direction which the Say- ior has pointed out for it to follow. A movement is being born which teaches us that humanity generally, and its conditions, should be more thoroughly studied. The workingmen today are beginning to realize what power in furthering their cause the Christian religion really is. The great- est of all American labor representa tives, Henry Lloyd, took part in a con vention of socialists held in Washing ton last fall. He had been especially invited by the Brotherhood of St. An- drews" In an address he delivered upon that occasion he exclaimed: 'I wish . I could show the working people of this country this WONDERFUL SPECTACLE WONDERFUL SPECTACLE of a bishop, a learned divine, a capi talist, an employer and a labor agita- tor seated on the same platform. All here but for one purpose— the improve- ment of the condition of the working man. . In the course of ids address he stated how he had met in England great leaders of the social movement inside the churches, fighting the great battle within the walls of the church. "What made the dock strike in Lon- don some years ago so effective as to move the grand old man, Gladstone, to say that that strike had done more for the workingmen than 100 years of ! earnest legislation? Only the fact that j such men as Cardinal Manning and Canon Farrar identified themselves j with the strikers, and took up their ! cause and fought it so grandly with j the only too well known result, j Henry Lloyd does not hesitate in call- i Ing the social movement a religious ; one, and, indeed, so it is. Religion Is J not a matter of mere privacy, but of i construction. It aims to the advance- ! ment of brotherhood, and its ultimate [ success. No more, no less.;7/y "The workingmen cannot conquer ; with outward means. I refer to the j law. The settling of all disputes, the progress to be instilled into the move- ment must be with a principle. For i one grand example think of the days : of slavery. Slavery -appealed to feel ings and convictions, and . under such \ circumstances it was finally abol- | 'shed. -\ "It Is, however, a remarkable fact j that many capitalists and employers begin ,to "realize what the true situa tion Is, and the power the church mu ses into the movement. Let it con- , tlnue to do It; and I tell you. It will; the more socialism is spoken of the more it will be spoken of. It is new; the ideas of the church embodied in the question cannot fail to make it successful. Fifty years hence the world will be different. The church is working slowly but steadily, and it will continue to do so. And you never yet experienced a motive the church, the Christian religion, may have bad, but that It succeeded so admirably. The Influence, of Jesus has virtually changed the views of workingmen. He at all times said, 'Follow mc and you will succeed,' and this heralding and admonishing command I make here, 'Follow the Christian church and you will grasp success at no distant date.' " The services during the evening wero made all the more attractive by the beautiful music rendered by Messrs. Carl Heilmaler, Emil Straka and Louis Milch, and Miss Monfort. The andan tlno by S. Jadassohn and trio from op. 88, Schumann, were admirably given by the trio of piano,, 'cello and violin artists, while -Miss Monfort sang an aria from the "Pfingstcantate," by Bach. «Itpniovnl.» Monday, June 2, th,- offlce of North western Passenger Agent of the Michi gan Central Railroad will move from 170 East Third street to 13".

Evident-CM Are Pound in a 11 < mid at Lynn, O. INDIANAPOLIS, June 2.-A largo mound standing near Lynn, in Ran dolph county, -just at present is en gaging much attention from archae ologists. It was first supposed to be artificial, but the contrary was shown when the village began carting away gravel for use on the streets a nd roads. The removal of gravel disclosed that the mound wa.3 of natural formation, as shown by its stratified condition, and the interesting fact also developed that It had been used as a burying ground by people of prehistoric age. Thus far 100 and more graves have been opened, and human remains of all agea and both sexes have been ex humed. Ornamental pieces, with arrow heads and the remains of lower ani mals have also in-, found. The shape of the skulls and the high check bones Indicate that the people burled there were Indiana of the mound-building age. Near this burying ground are a number of artificial mounds, with earthworks, still further away. The graves in the first-named mound range from three to eighteen feet In depth, and are so made that a. man could scarcely work therein. The po sition in which the skeletons were found lead to the supposition that the bodies were lowered by their bands, and were permitted to settle in any position they might naturally take. In many Instances the head wis found between the knees, with th.- hands resting on or near the bead. A skele ton exhumed yesterday v.-as found at the depth of nine feet Lying in the same grave was a quantity of burnt bone, having the appearance of human bone. The skeleton had no marks of flre. In another grave, but a Dhort distance ..wax*, the remains had been burned, and it. is the supposition that they were the remains of some cap tive who was made to perish by fire. .Wood charcoal Is also frequently found. Many of the findings in thi3 mound have been forwarded to the museum of Karlham college for preser vation, and others have been cent to Washington. The tolerations are to be continued Indefinitely.
