SERVICES IN NEWARK CHURCHES
LOW SUNDAY SERVICES IN NEWARK CHURCHES Clerical Interest Deepens in the Work of Social Service in VievV'of the Convention to Be Held Here in May—New Mis sion Methods in Presbyterian Churches. T OMORROW, Low Sunday, or the Sunday next after Easter, the musio in the churches of Newark will be sung in a key an octave lower than that of thy Easter services. This a custom which hus obtained im niemorialiy in Catholic and Episcopal churches. In the churches which have come to realize the importance of social ser vice In connection with church work much interest is taken in the forth coming social service convention which will he held in the First Presbyterian Church on May 4, 3 and 6. The proper attitude of the church towards such a movement, the part that it should take in It, the time that the pastors of Individual churches should devote to it, are still unsettled problems. In Newark, where the question of unemployment is a burning one, there is rriuch for the church to do. It is felt that it cannot shirk its responsibility or leave entirely to charitable organizations the work of relief that Is neces sary. To refer all applicants for help, the worthy and the unworthy, to the “Society for the Suppression of Vice and Mendicant Imposture,” as some churches have done, would seem to be a cruel and un-Christlike method. To the humane It appears a cruel ahd blasting act to enroll all unfortunates in the criminal or derelict clusses. Hut the alternative, what should it be? This is the problem to be solved. And then questions among Fresby tarians is that of missions, to be car ried on under a new system, as the Evening Star announced In these col umns some months ago anil as Was admirably explained by the Rev. Dr, Lusk at the recent meeting of the Newark Presbytery in this city.

Pastor of the ,4Old First," Draws Crowds Success in Newark of a Preacher Who Believes in Institu tional Work and Has Proved Its Value in a His toric Field. The lte\. William 3. Dawson, D. D., pastor of tho Kirst Presbyterian Church, Is a man whose face bears tho stamp of intellectual power. He Is, perhaps, in appearance, rather the author than the. cleric, and his writ ings prove that literary strength and gru.ee of diction are natural to him. And, certainly, such gifts in no way detract from Ids power and influence as a minister of tho gospel. Dr. Dawson lias written much upon literature, and his judgments upon such writers a« Burke and Coleridc, and Scott, among the novelists of England, arc profound in their dis cernment and eloquent in I heir ex pression. When such a man de votes his talents to the spread of the Kingdom of Christ It is certain that the flock to whom he ministers will receive not only tho true Water of Life, but will be uplifted mentally above the mass of men. Dr. Dawson was born In Towcester, England, III 1854; educated a4 Kines wood College, Bath, and at Dldsbury College, Manchester, Engla rid. He was for fifteen years a Wesleyan minister, for a part of the time at Wesley s Chapel, London. The Incumbency here of Dr. Daw son attracted great crowds, and he rapidly achieved national fame. In Glasgow, .Scotland, his ministry was a success In a wonderful degree. At his concluding service, more than four thousand persons were present and an equal number failed to gain admittance. For twelve 3renrs he was pastor of the Highborn Quadrant Congrega tional Church in London. During that lime the congregation increased from five hundred to two thousand. It was there that Dr. Dawson inaugurated the institutional work which has been one of the agencies of his success in Newark. In 1994 Dr. Dawson came to visit Dr. Newell Dwight II lilts, in Brook lyn, ostensibly f< r a rest, but in* soon became interested in a scheme of public work. He traveled from Bos ton to Seattle, preaching and lectur ing all the way. In the first few weeks of Ids tour he addressed nearly 70,000 persons. The warm welcome which Dr. Daw son received in America so impressed him that when he returned to Eng land he resigned his London church and came back to the United States with his family. Dr. Dawson’s work in Newark has been blessed with a wonderful de gree of success. Mis desire is to have a headquarters for his institutional plans and doubtless, In time*, he will get it. His desire is that the First. Presbyterian Church, a part of the very life not only of Newark, but of the State, shall do the centre of so cial :-k for the benefit of the peo ple Oii the city. Church’s Sixty-fourth Year The sixty-fourth anniversary of the founding of the South Baptist Church was observed on Thursday afternoon and evening in the church by a Bo 1 Call Service and business meeting. The afternoon service, commencing at 3:30 o’clock, assumed the form of a covenant meeting. An address was delivered by Itev. S. A. Perrlnc, pas tor of the Fifth Baptist Church, of this city. This was followed by an opportunity for personal response from those who attended, and the reading of communications from ab sent members. Between the after noon and evening services a social hour was enjoyed, at which refresh ments were served by the Dorcas So ciety. The annual business meeting con vened at 7:30 o'clock. At this meeting all the officers and organisations of the church presented reports of their work. Officers for the forthcoming year were elected and the new mem tars attending enrolled. The services were concluded by an address by itev. l.r Artnur 1'. Fowler, pastor of the North Baptist Church, Orange. Bet ters were then read from the only liv ing former pastors of the church, itev. Dr. Fennell, and Rev. Dr. Vassar, now of Elizabeth. The pastor of the South Baptist Church, Rev. Dr. Clark T. Brownell, will preach the annua) anniversary sermon at the morning services to morrow. . . ., Dr. Brownell, in a letter to his con gregation, has this to say: “A survey of the past year affords abundant cause for rejoicing. An ex cellent spirit of courage and unanim ity has prevailed. The regular wor ship and services of the church have been well sustained, and its organ izations have been wise and zealous in their labors. A renewed emphasis lias been placed upon the work of our Bible school, and a closei* union es tablished between the church and tie school by tiie permanent change «»f the school sessions to the morning hour. Tiie Men’s League hns indorsed the effort by merging its forces with the men’s Bible class In an inde pendent organization. The interests i 1 the young have been conserved by the recent organization of clubs and societies under competent leaders. “Our resources have been mat' riully increased through the generosity of Dr. J. Ackerman Coles and Mis JOm ily Coles, of New York, who have given a substantial sum as a perma nent endowment in memory of their father, the late Dr. Abram Boles, for many years a faithful member of our church Tn the support of regular beneficence we have led the Baptist churches of the city. An every iri' in ber canvass recently conducted with gratifying results secures for the coming year more efficient and united support of the church and ill its be - neficence. “The pastor also desires to express his appreciation of the sympartiy and kindness he has received in personal relations with the members, of the cordial welcome ho has enjoyed in their homes, and of the support he has been given through their efforts mid prayers. Ife sends his personal greetings to ouch member with m ap I eal to join in the social and spiritual enjoyment of this annual gathering of our beloved church.” Church Building Record The year's record of Presbyterian church building astonished Ihe New ark Presbytery when It met the other day.

Gave Ireland to King Henry II. by Bull Life of English Pontiff, Nicholas Breakspear, Who Crowned Frederick Barbarossa. Nicholas Breakspear, Pope Adrian IV,, the only English pontiff, has at last found a biographer worthy of hint. This is Rev. Dr. Horace K. Mann, who is writing the history of the mediaeval papacy. This volume, containing the life of Adrian IV., is the tenth volume of Dr. Mann's la borious undertaking. Adrian reigned from 1154 to 1159. Dr. Mann In this volume deals with the attitude of the Eastern Emperors and Patriarchs to wards the Bee of Rome. But the chief Interest In the vol ume is the part relating to the bull, "I.anda VUIter.” That Adrian IV. did make some sort of grant of Ire land to Henry II, is. no doubt, now generally admitted and Dr. Mann is disposed to accept the bull itself as undoubtedly genuine. ills Jroveriy in louiit. Adrian IV., Cardinal Bishop of SI. Albans, and low In estate and ob scure in the Homan heirarchy, was, as it were, snatched from the lowest degree of poverty by Divine Provi dence to be placed on the throne of St. Peter. He was the son of a vil lage clerk, hu r>oor and so miserable that after the death of his wife, hav ing no home, he asked for aid of the Abbey of St. AI bans. There he served the monks so well that he was soon made a monk and was al lotted the task of domestic service. He was called Brother Robert. His son was of a tender age and he often visited tlie monastery when alms Were bestowed upon him. The father of Nicho’as was full of shame when he saw that his son was nothing more than n mendicant and he forbade him, finally, even to come to the Abbey again. Nicholas then sought to retrieve his fortunes In France. At first he nearly starved, and lie made his way to Florence and stopped at the Abbey of Saint Huf, the famous momistery of the Canons Regular, very near Avignon. With assiduity he applied himself to gain the good will of the brother hood, and he w'hs bo gentle and hum ble, so gay In nature at the same time, and so obedient and careful In all the commissions entrusted to him by the monks that in a very short time he was honored by the bestowal of the habit of the order. TIuMilojciie and Orator. Thus Nicholas lived many years at Saint Huf. He applied himself to reading and severe study. As his mind was penetrating and as he was very receptive, he soon made himself a master In theology and a preacher of eloquence and power. After some years he was made prior of the monastery, the brotherhood deciding that he was eminently fitted for the office by ids religious and temporal influence and bearing. After the death of the Abbot, William II., he was made the successor of the latter In the supreme rule, not alone of the monastery, but of the whole order throughout the continent. But Nicholas Breakspear was, above all, a moral man, and when he sawr abuses he attempted to reform them. The canons, of a nature lltt e conformable to the character of I servants of God, soon complained tu i Pope TfJugenlus, who removed the of fending abbot.

Advocates of the development of churches in the rurul districts main tain that the words "as soon as prac ticable'' permitted the department to continue as long as there was need for urging pastors In country dis tricts to become closely related to the every-day life of the rural dis tricts instead of their living in towns miles uway from their rural cong; gatlons.
