At Mrs. Asher's meeting the reporter and the organist made up the male part of the congregation in Its entirety.

The personal workers upon her solici tation went around among those pres ent while every one sang hymns. "I feel no burdened tonight," said Mrs. Asher at one point.

Every saloon service Is different. Asher springs a new "gag," as he w-ould put it, some new slang anyway, every time. Just as last night there may be present some man with a par ticularly well developed case of black eye or cut lip. It all makes a religious service more out of the ordinary. 'Mrs. Asher conducted a good part of the service last evening till she had to hurry away to the Church of the Redeemer to help there. But she was not the only one to take a prominent part other than Mr. Asher. The other was Henry G. N'ichols, secretary of the Musicians' union, who volunteered to play the little dress-suit-case organ given the Ashers by the saloonkeepers of t. Paul. The evangelist announced his coming meetings for the rest of the week to be: To-night at the Congress hotel, corner of Congress avenue and Temple street, and Friday at Jean Swift's bowling alleys, over the Western Union on Orange street. He also urged "the boys" to go to Poll's "theayter" any noon and hear Dr. Chapman. "See If . he Isn't all to the good," hi Bald, "and ' be sure to take the wife along too, boys." Mrs. Asher sang "O, Where Is My Wandering Boy To-night," arJd the j men joined in on the choru in a creditable manner. One man had a shrill tenor voice that was plainly to : be heard above them all. Between the; two verses Mrs. Asher said a few 1 words In which she urged such of the i men as had not written to their moth- ers In some time to do so rnd make them glad again. "Think of the old mother who stood by you, men," she I said. "O, men, be a man to-night and be the man your mother loves. You i will at least write mother a line." There were many heads bowed In deep recollcctlve thought as the fln- ished. 1 Mrs. Asher followcS tho song with ! a simple prayer. ! "Don't let that felloiv go out," spoke ; up the evangelist at the close of the j prayer, pointing vigorously toward ithe door. The man In question turn : ed towards him and began to smile, i "What's the matter, Bud? Did you think we were going to work the col lection game on you now?" The man j remained. Mr. Asher then gave a j straight forward talk to them, in the course of which he told a story about ia man who had once graduated as a ; doctor from a university, but whom he found In Utica after he had "been hitting the booze pretty strong." He had been a "woman chaser and ev- cjiiimg vise mat is :oui. The man them to the service of Cod.

Remem ber, it is a vital question with you th question of where you will spend eternity and you alone must answer. With the Episcopal mission now on in Xew Haven it seems to me that the very air Is permeated with the spirit of righteousness. It seems to me that It must be so easy to say 'Yes.' " Prayers ware called for from the la dies in th3 congregation and a number responded. Some of them spoke so quietly that they could scarcely be heard. Mrs. Asher closed the meetins with a short account of the work she and her husband are doing among the sa loons. "May we all make a final deci-i sion for the right to-day on this Church Day," she said in conclusion, "and make this ono of the greatest days that this city has ever seen." PAY or REJOICING. Tuesday next will be observed as a "Day of Rejoicing."

It Is purposed to make everybody feel happy on this day and in connection with the plans now being arranged, the poor and needy of the city w ill receive practical expression of Christian sym pathy. Coal, wood and clothing will be furnished to many deserving people of tho city. The center for the distri bution of gifts will be the Organized Charities building on Orange street.

" The sermon was per haps the most impressive that he has delivered, and at Its end a number of the pledge cards were handed In. Mr. and Mrs. Asher were presmt at the services. Mr. Asher made a brief address in which he explained his work in the saloons. Ho exhorted his hearers-to use a kind attitude toward the' fallen, and to use every effort to re claim them. -.

At the Pilgrim Congregational church and at the Grand Avchue Congrega tional church yesterday t- id.lresses on the Holy Spirit were ..ered by Dr. Ostrom. ' In the address at Pilgrim church he said, "You will never help this world by cry'iig out against the swift move ment of the railway trains, and the push and rush of business. Personally, I hope that our methods of travel will be made swifter rather than slower. In my pastorate In Milwaukee years ago, when the street car company changed from mules to electricity many of the old Inhabitants refused to ride tho flre-spittiig things until after a while theytdeelded that It would he better to ride tban to walk. I plead for greater men rather than for less speed." Dr. Ostrom wag speaking on the Il lustration given by Jesus when he rep resented man ;s a fountain out of PROBABLY RE-ELECT., Itend the Jenrnnl-Courler for full re- p'ortn of all Chapman mectlnmn. I, ' William Asher is Voting a, reliable i following. There are certain men who1' 1 a're following him from saloon to saloon M every night and they are not the re- 1 porters alone, either. The deacon he who passed tho hymn sheets to the" ladies so gallantly the night before on j Etate street, was at Branciers last night on George street. He Is getting to be one of the pillars of Asher's saloon church. One thing that pleased Asher greatly was the fact that the deacon had had a shave and looked last even ing less "down-and-outist." There was a policeman present, too, but whether he was the same one as the j? night before could not be said with j certainty because, to pervert a popular ' song title, all policemen look alike. The barkeeper helped the deacon "distrib- : was an atheist, and had never given a wh,oh Eho,lI(1 fl"w rlvor!' of 1,V'K wa- in, inn 11113 ne quoted to prove that Christ redeemed men to live a great overflowing life.

Ho was teaching of the great, rich, helpful life of a redeemed man. thought to eternity and his soul since his boyhood. Mr. Asher told how he got 'the man finally on his knees praying "O, God, be merciful to me, a sinner." "That man later became one of our bfst helpers in Saratoga," said Mr. Asher, "and his case has been dupli cated a hundred time In my exper ience. I'll guarantee the same results with any of you who will make a stand. .Vow, how many of you want to do so? Don't hold up you hand to please me, for "it wont if you don't mean It." At least k dozen hands were shown. TWO-AFTER MEETINGS. Dr. Chnpmnn Talks to Men; Asher to Women. Mrs. has the the WEST HAVEN.

He has been urgod to take an other term, but he refuses to do so. However, there Is little doubt that he will be compcllel to resume the place again. Wherefore it cculd be seen that the old board will be selected, which will bo as follows: President Seymour S. Judd. Secretary Kdward P. Lyon. Treasuier John A. Hull.

The recently d's cussed reunion of the Redmondites and the O'Hrienltes is still far from con summation, judging from an occur rence to-day at the meeting of the Na tional Directory of tho United Irish league. Two nationalists from Cork, supporters of Mr. O'Brien and duly accredited delegates to the meeting, en tered the hall, but the league officials ordered that they be expelled. The delegates from Cork declined to obey ar.d, after a struggle, they were finally ejected by force. A resolution adopted welcomed "as a basis for attracting attention to the absurdity of the hereditary principle In legislation and the moral and political Imbecility of the Irish peeragj as a class, the candidature of Lord Curzon for the Irish representative peerage." GREAT RADICAL CONVENTION ON SOUTH AFRICA. The Chamberlain Company. "Comer Store" h -OUR MID-WINTER FURNITURE SALE Le1ure to be Given Before Caledonian Cluh. At the rooms of tho New Haven Cal edonian club, Saturday evening, at 8 o'clock, C. R, Robertson will deliver nn ilustrated lecture on South Africa.

He has studied close ly tWe manners and v.ays of the people, and is well able to give an Interesting and Intelligent lecture on the suhject. The pictures used were all taken by himself and the;- show very vividly -1 lfe and scenes throughout South Am erica. There will be no admission and every ono will be made welcome. I BAREFOOT Its Aeliou Mav Signify Not a Little In Hose Slates. , The great radical convention of 1 90S has been called to meet in St. Louis on April 2, to nominate a presidential ticket. Such convention purports to have been called by the People's par ty, the national provisional committee,- the Federated People's Party Clubs, the American Monetary League and other reform organizations. Tho movement looking to such convention of all the reform forces began In the spring of 1905. t It appears from the declaration of principles and purposes that there Is to be no union or fusion with either of tho old parties. "It means that the men with red blood of American patriot ism In their veins recognize that the machinery of the Republican and Democratic parties has been captured by the corporate money power of the country." reads the declaration. It Is further npserted as follows- That anarchy of corporate grfed reaches Into every nook and corner of our land. That law, Justice and equality has become a mockery and a sham. That our legislative bodies have he come the servile tools of frenzied financiers. That the taxing powers of govern ment have been given over to corpora tion tax farmers as under tho Louis of France. That the mocking query of Wall street to the American people Is, "Whnt ore you going to do about It?" We control both the great political parties. With other Inclosnres, there Is cir culated a blank sheet for voters to fill In with their choice of candidates for the presidency and vice-presidency. It provides for expressions for a flirt and a' second choice. It Is presumed that the nominations will be made In this wav. nlthough those attending the con vention will have their votes counted with the rest. President II. L. Bcntlcy of Abilene, who Is at the hrad of the National Federation of People's Party Clubs, joins in the call. President J. M. Mal lett of the National Reform Press As sociation, who resides at Cleburne, calls his organization to meet at the same time and place, to join with oth er reform orgnizptions Whether the "reformers" decide to join forces with either of the old par BOYS IN JANUARY.
