wero knocked violently to tho floor on

Chicago, Sept. 12. A processional In
which the u-llglons of tho world were rep
resented signalized tho opening of tliu
World's Parliament of Bellglons at the
Art institute. It wns a processional that
line! n world of mennlni! in it: one that
would lmvo been impossible not many I
years ago, Jew marched with Gentile
and Roman Catholic wjth Protestant.
The religious beliefs of India, of China,
and of Japan were represented, ns well ns
those of tho English-speaking nations.
All attired in their priestly robes and
wearing tho insignia of their ofllco
marched in peace nnd fellowship to tho
platform, whilo the nudlcnco roso nnd j
cheered nt tho sight. First camo Cardinal
Gibbons escorted by President Bonnoy.
Then camo Mrs. Potter Palmer and Mrs.
Charles Hcnrotin, representing tho board
of lady manngcrs.
Homo lMciuoiit of the l'niccailnn.
Thero wero following In tho procession
an archbishop of Zaute, Greece; a Metho
dist minister from Chlcnco; a Roman
Catholic archbishop of Chicago; several
Lutherans from Germanv and Sweden;
two or threo East Indian lirahmlus and
Buddhists; a Chicago Presbyterian clergy
man; a Chinese Buddhist; s Chicago Israel
ite; a couple of Bombay theologians, and,
In fact, the most heterodox line of religion
ists ever seen slnco the world begun. As
this remarkable parado reached tho hall
the nudlcnco rose and joined In singing
"Praise God from Whom All Blessings
Flow," a hymn that, as it acknowledges
tho Chrlstnln doctrines of the Trinity, was
hardly appropriate In such n gathering.
The I'rayerof All Who Uollcve In Clol.
The next thing on tho programme was
more universal than tho hymn. Cardinal
Gibbous led tho heterodox gathering In
prayer and tho petition he put up wns tho
"lord's Prayer," and theru was not one
of those pieseut who could not, whether
ho did or no, join in tho prayer. For the
Mohammedan, tho Buddhist, tho Brah
min, all of whom wero present, bcllovo In
a supreme being. Tho scene was a novel
one, for many of tho visitors from tho Ori
ent were clad in their native costumes,
the prelates in some instances in their
robes of ofllce. There was not a vacant
scat in tho hall nnd many were standing
ngaiust tho walls nnd in other plnces
whero a view of the platform could be
The Vcrintllo I'resldent llonney.
Thero is one man connected with these
World's fair congresses who has hardly
had the credit that ho deserves, and thnt
It President Bouncy. Being tho head of
these gatherings to this gentleman has
fallen the duty of welcoming tho various
bodies which have met under the auspices
of tho World's Auxiliary. Ho has had
to speak to woman suffragists, spirit
ualists, civil engineers, social reformers
of all kinds, nnd in fact to thu believers In
or ngitntors of everything that Is current
in tho world of progress. And lio has
shown a versatility of speech tuat has
enabled him to gpctiK to them nil in such
a manner as to tell them "what they wero
thero for" without mnklng n singlo mis
take. Every one, of his brief addresses has
been felicitous and just what tho occasion
How Ho Tnlkcil to Heterodoxy.
And In addressing this congress prob
ably tho ono in addressing which it was
tho easiest to say something thnt would
rankle ho was especially happy. He said
in brief that they should all give thanks
for being nolo to take part in so grand a
congress, ono that so lully exemplified
peace and progress, and which would have
so great nn intlucnce on the world. After
reviewing the programme of tho congress,
ho welcomed all In tho name of tho
brotherhood of religion.
Rev. John Henry Burrows, chairman of
tho committee on organization, then ad
dressed tho congress. He said that never
before had such a congress been under
taken, nnd not long ago it would lmvo
been deemed impossible to carry It to suc
ROMAN CATHOLIC WELCOME.
Fcchan and Gibbons Greet the lU'llgion
1st of All tho World.
Archbishop Fcehan folloxvcd, welcoming
tho delegates on behalf of tho Romnn
Catholic church. Ho said that tho as
sembly xvas cno unliiuo in the history of
tho xvorld. Learned men had como from
all countries to speak and to tell us of
those things that xvero of the greatest in
terest to nil of God, of his truth and
justice, of his worship, of peace, nnd of
mercy. No matter how wo might differ
in religion there xvas one thing that xvas
common to us all, and that xvas our com
mon humanity. The archbishop wel
comed the delegntes in his oxvn name and
iu all that ho represented.
Cardinal Gibbous had to lenx'o early, so
his response to tho addresses of xvelconie
was called for out of its order. He suld
that though all did not Hgree on matters
of faith, thero xvas ono platform on which
nil were united, that xvas charity, human
ity and benevolence. He spoke of tho
Good Samaritan who bound up thuxvounds
of n man xvho xvas his enemy in religion
and in social life, and said that that xvas
the example we ought to follow. Hesald
that ho could not Impress too strongly ou
cx-ory one that each xvas his brother's keep
er. That xvas the xvliolo theory ot human
ity. It Christ had cried xvith Cain, "Am
1 my brother's keeper!" we xvould still bu
xvalkiug in darkness.
Rex. Augusta J. Chapin welcomed the
congress on behalf of xvonian. Tho par
liament of religious, she said, xvas the
grandest and most significant Gathering
that had ever been assembled on this
earth. President Hlgiubotliaiii, ot tho
Columbian exposition, next xvelcomed the
delegates ou behalf ot the World's fair.
Ho said it was a source of great satisfac
tion that a now city in n far part of tho
xvorld should be accorded tho honor of
these congresses. They were the greatest
honor of tho World's fair year.
Rex', Alexander McKenzle, tho next
speaker, said that he supposed that every
one xvho spoko stood for sumething and
he. stood for tho old settlers, tho Puritans.
Thero xvas one. thing that xve could show
the foreigners that could bo seen nowhreo
else In the world, ami that xvas a repub
lic that xvas in the proccss-of making by
Christian forces. Thero xvas a religious
motive in thu founding or it, ana it xvas
that, to thought, that made it proper to
upeuk of It at this time. The parliament
of nliglous, ho said, xvas really begun on
Plymouth rock and had been growing in
Importance ever since until now every re
ligion on earth was rcpicsctited in tho
oo tin try.
The speaker on tho programmn was
greeted with such npplniiso as was Pung
Qtiaug Yu, secretary of thu Chinese lega
tion at Washington. In Introducing him
Mr. Bouncy spoko of the treatment
that some of his countrymen hud r eel veil
In this country, but in spite of whtrh the
emperor of China had sent nilelegato In
a Christian spirit to this congress. Near

VERY DISTINGUISHED BABY.
Tim First Ono Horn to a I'resldent In
WasiiinotoS, Sept. 11. Tho birth of a
child to tho president of tho United States
is a matter ot no more moment to the peo
ple of this republic, except to "the friends
of tho family," than the birth of any other
baby. But there is ono difference to bo
noted in such n matter, nnd that is that
the president has moro friends than any
other man in tho country. So In that way
moro people aro interested in his joys and
sorrows. Consequently xvhen ou Satur
day morning n littlu girl came to put Miss
Ruth's nose out of joint about till tho men

sorry in sympathy xvith thu probable feel
ings of tho president, that it xvasn't a boy.

happy enough anyhoxv.for mothernud child
are both d mg well nnd the little xvoman
Is healthy and sound. But this samo little
worn in has been honored xvith a distinc
tion that up to her appearance no child
ever possessed. She is tho first child of n
president born iu tho White House,.
Others lmvo drawn their first breath in
that historic mansion, but they xvero not
children of the president. Since the event
letters and telegrams of congratulation
have been pouring in upon the prrsldcut,
