The Coffin Lowered Anhd
ST. PETERSBURG , Nov. 20.-A thick
fog enveloped the city today , but
the podulace was astir early , for all
were anxious to witness the last
ceremonies in honor of the late czar ,
Alexander III. At the same time the
troops detailed to take part in the
funeral ceremonies began moving to
the places assigned to them.
In the cathedral of St Peter and St.
Paul were representatives of all the
imperial and royal families of Europe ,
and a vast crowd of notables. The
metropolitan of St. Petersburg conducted -
ducted the czarina to her place
near the coffin , which reposed' in
state in the center of the cathedral.
The czar and the grand dukes and the
members of the thirty royal families
of Europe with their suites took up
positions on the right of the coffin ,
and the many military officers in attendance -
tendance were grouped behind the
bier. On the left were the foreign
ambassadors and ministers and their
staffs , while grouped around in lifter-
ent parts of the cathedral were countless -
less delegations from Russian cities
and elsewhere , including numerous
delegations from France.
Enormous crowds of people gathered -
ered on both sides of the Neva , long
before the ceremonies ' '
czar , the imperial family and the
royal mourners were received at the
door of the cathedral by the metropolitan -
politan of St. Petersburg and by all
the members of the holy synod bearing -
ing crosses and holy water. The imperial -
perial party formed in procession and
marched up the aisle until the czar
and other mourners reached their appointed -
THE SERVICES 3IOST IMh'nhSSIVE.
At 10:30 o'clock the funeral service
began while three cannon shots were
fired. Tapers were handed to all the
mourners , and the high priest , with a
burning torch , lighted the czar's
taper , and afterwards did the
same with those held by the members
of the imperial family , after which
other priests lighted time tapers of all
the other mourners in turn according
to rank , until eveiybody was kneeling -
ing and holding lighted tapers in
their right hands , ] rich , with clouds
of incense and the solemn chanting
of the priests , nave a most weird effect -
fect to the whole scene.
At the conclusion of the funeral
service the mourners of the imperial
familyincluding the czarina and Czar
Nicholas , paid their last respects to
the dead czar , kissing the icon lying
on his breast. The czar assisted the
czarina , who was terribly affected.
Eight generals then removed the
pall and carried the coffin to the altar
while eight other generals bore the
casket. The czar then placed his
father's imperial mantel within the
coffin , which was then finally closed ,
and the procession to the tomb was
formed. It was headed by time metropolitan -
politan of St. Petersburg and the
clergy intoning a solemn chant. The
coffin borne by the czar , the grand
dukes , the princes and the most distinguished -
tinguished generals followed.
LAID AWAY IN THE VAULT.
The mostimpressivc portion of the
ceremony was at the lowering of the
czar's body into the vault by high
civil officers of the government. As
the coffin disappeared from view the
loud booming of .cannon and the salvos -
vos fired by platoons of infantry from
the adjoining fortress reverberated'
through the church , mingling with
the words of the burial service , and
the lowering of the mourning flag
and the hoisting of the ordinary imperial -
perial standard on the fortress tower
proclaimed to the world outside that
the last rites had been concluded.
The czar bore the ordeal with fortitude -
tude , but many among the group of
imperial and royal personages clustered -
tered around the open grave were
visibly affected. Time czar remained
in the church until the tomb was
After this last ceremony the imper
ial insignia were carried back , is
state , in a number of carriages to
the winter palace and were there deposited -
posited in their accustomed place in
St. George's hail.
Since the first clay of the lying in
state there luau been no diminution
in the number of those seeking to
take a last loom at the face of Russia's
dead ruler , and so great were the
crowds that the police were unable
to control the masses , and so violent
was the pressure at times that lampposts -
posts and trees were knocked down
and many persons bally : hurt.

. DR. BR tGGS' WORK.
The Messiah of the Gospel Msde
Public. i I
' NEW YORK , Nov. 19.-The Com- F
mercial Advertiser publishes'a synop"r
sis of the latest work of Professor r ,
Charles ABriggs of the Union Theo ,
logical seminary , who was declared a. , ;
heretic by the Presbyterian general- , l
assembly. The book , "The Messiah. . , dl
of the Gospels , " is intended to follow 1
"Messianic Prophecy , " which caused.
so much comment when published in. rte ,
1886. It was the intention of Dr. +
Briggs to publish the ' Messiah of the = +
Gospels in 1867 , but the charges of
heresy were brought about that time'
and he was compellyd to defer the'
publication until now.
The dedication runs as follows : ; 1
"To Henry Preserved Smith , tru ©
scholar , faithful friend and brave-
companion in holy warfare this book. ,
is dedicated in sympathy and love. "
In his latest book Dr. Briggs has'
entered minutely into a discussion of :
the second advent. He is convinced. f
that the faith of the church of the /
day is defective in its lack of apprehension -
hension of the reigning Christ and is
its neglect of the second advent of
the Lord. The chapters upon fm- -
maculate conception will perhaps call
for the most criticism. Be says :
"The blessed virgin was residing in' i
Nazareth of Galilee , betrothed to
Joseph of the royal line of David , the
heir of the Messianic promises of the . '
old testament. The time for marriage
had not yet come. God had a higher
appointment for her to fulfill as the
virgin mother of the Messiah. The r
virgin conception of Jesus , as announced - ' )
nounced by the archangelis not to be
interpreted as if it were a miracle in
violation of the laws of nature , but
lather as brought about by God himself -
self present in theopany. The words
of the angel imply a theopanic pres-
ence. Though it might be urged ,
that time coming of the Spirit upon
her was an invisible coming after the
analogy of many passages of the old
testament , yet the parallel statement
that the divine power overshadowed
her cannot be so interpreted. .
"This annunciation represents the
conception of Jesus as due to a
tlreophany. It does not rotate the
doctrine of of His pre-existence , although -
though that doctrine is a legitimate '
inference. It represents an early
stage of New Testament christology.
It does not go a step beyond time Paul-
ism of the epistle to the Corinthians. 1
It implies nothing more than the
sending in birth taught by time epis
ties to time Gallatians and to the
Romans. It is really more primitive
and more simple christology of con- I
Dr. Brings makes a special study of I
the second advent of Christ , discussing -
ing it as a matter of greater importance -
ance than most theologians have
deemed necessary. He says :
"The hour of the resurrection is
coming. It can not be said of it that
now is' or that 'it is at hand. ' However -
ever , there is the prediction of three
resurrections , the first spiritual , time
last universal : time intermediate one ,
distinct from the first and the last
and impending , being connected with
the resurrection of the Messiah Him-
self. Christ first predicts time impartation -
tation of everlasting life to all who
lmear time word of the Messiah and believe -
lieve in God. All such have passed.
outof death unto life. Tlmey will no .
more die. They will ndt come to
judgment It is a spiritual
resurrection imparted by the
word of time Messiah to all be-
licvcrs during the physical 'life in
this world. It is also predictell that
an hoar is coming and now is when
the dead will hear the quickening
voice of the son of God and live. Time
hour coming points to the future , and.
therefore , indicates a different resurrection -
rection from the spiritual resurrection -
tion of the previous sectionwhich ,
was already enjoyed by all wh&h card
the Messiah's words and believed.
Christ also predicts a universal resurrection -
rection of time dead at the ultimatum
judgment in which some will rise to
life and others to condemnation. "
