SPECIAL MUSICAL PROGRAM RENDERED

B . John , Ike DUclplc.
The titular feast ot Bt. John's Collegiate
church was celebrated yesterday morning at
10 o'clock with solemn high mass. The cel
ebrant was Hcv. M. M. Bronsgcest , assisted
by Bishop Scnnncll. The Acolytlcnl society
was out In full body , the priests and mem
bers marching to the church from the college
Lulldlng and back at the conclusion of the
mass , under direction of Rev. O. Mcdovern ,
the master of ceremonies. The feast was
celebrated with great solemnity.
A special musical program was rendered
during the mass , the choir of the church fur
nishing the music. The Kyrlc , the Gloria ,
the Credo nnd the Angus Del from Paclnl's
"Mcssa Bolemnls" was sung , the solo parts
being taken by Mrs. Uethge. The Sanctus
and Bcncdlctus from Gounod's "Messe Sol-
cmncllc" were also rendered , the solo parts
being sung by Mrs. Edward Cudahy. Jo
Barton sang as a solo Monti's "Venl Crea
tor , " and the offertory , Emllto Plzzl's "Avo
Maria , " was sung by Miss Rose Hclllg , with
violin obllgnto by Robert Cuscaden and or
gan by John A. Schenk.
The sermon , a panegyric of St. John , was
preached by Rev. Thomas D. Finn. He gave
an outline of the disciple's life. He dwelt
upon his twenty-three years' Intimacy with
the virgin , and of his supreme activity In
spreading the gospel during the rest of
his life after the death of the Savior. The
priest gave to the apostle the proud distinc
tion of having labored longer than the
other disciples In this work , being engaged
In It for over seventy ycnrs. At the tlmo
of his death he was over 90 years of age.
The lesson that the priest pointed out
In the life of the saint was his great zeal
In working for Jesus , nnd the Importance of
It. He declared that zeal Is preferable to
martyrdom , but ho Insisted that It should
not bo confined to apostles or priests or
bishops ; It Is Incumbent upon every member
of the faith to exercise zeal In the saving
of souls and In the driving nway of sin
from himself , hU family , his friends nnd
from the church.
Continuing In his relation of the life of
the apostle , the priest spoke of the many
churches nnd missions ho founded , of his
great preaching and teaching. All the other
npostles had died of violent deaths when
the "meanest of all the Caesars , " Domltlan ,
was ruling the world , and In the second per
secution of the Christians dragged St.
John to Rome. The apostle was condemned
to death and outside of a gate of the city
was thrown Into a vat of boiling oil. By
a miracle he escaped without Injury , but
ns he was placed In the torture he spoke out
The priest pointed out another lesson In
this crisis In the apostle's life. Ho said that
people of this day could not expect to suffer
martyrdom , but they are called upon to
suffer Insults for their faith. He asserted
that they could show n martyr spirit by
bearing such Insults with fortitude and by
displaying courage In holding fast to their

The pulpit of Westminster Presbyterian
church was occupied yesterday by Rev. C.
W. Klnney of St. Johnsvlllo , N.Y. , , who
preached two excellent sermons , and was
greeted by large , well pleased congrega
tions. Preceding the morning sermon Miss
Elna Williams sang "Jerusalem. "
Rev. Klnney chose as a subject for his
morning discourse the stormy passage ol
the disciples across the sea ot Galileo , and
Christ's subduing of the tempest nnd quiet
ing of the disciples' fears. Ho likened our
lives to n voyage besot with storms , and
pointed out the true guide for our life
"To accept Christ , " said Rev. Klnnay ,
"the heart must put nway obstacle * which
stand In the way of Consistent Christian
life and any person who has not taken
Christ as his' savior is offering oppo
sition to God's call. People advance many
reasons for not becoming Christians , fiomi
say It Is because their friends are not
Christians and some do not follow Jcsm
because He does not come as a great In
tellectual leader who will have to do only
with the educated few. Ho must be taken
just as He Is , the lowly Kazarene , the man
ot sorrows , and Ho cannot bo changed tc
fit the fancy of any person of earth. He
is the humble Galilean to the world , bu ;
an everlasting father and prluco of peuci
to the soul. ,
"Sorrows come to tempt falthCul on a-
from belief In God , and skepticism comes
llko a bright-eyed , entrancing snake whlcl
calls Christians from the ranks of the be
liever , but If the heart Is properly guardci
such temptations will have no effect , tt
all sorrows and reverses there Is no com
forter llko Jesus , and those who trust ii
Him will bo guided through all storms am
will anchor In a harbor where storms art
unknown nnd sorrows are never heard of. '
FROM HIS oi.n PUI.PIT
Rev. S. n. McCurmtulc VUIt the Fir *
Rev. S. B. McCormlck , D. D. , formcrl ;
pastor of the First Presbyterian church o
this city , and now president of Coo collegi
at Cedar Rapids , la. , occupied his old pulp !
at both services yesterday. The visit of thel
former pastor was sufficient to bring ou
the full congregation , and the church \sa
well filled nt both services.
Rev. McCormlck's morning discourse deal
with the subject , "Helping with the Cross.1
It was based on the Incidents attending th
Journey of the Saviour to Calvary whci
Blraon helped him to carry the Instrumcn
of His crucifixion , while the rabble gathcrc
to hinder and annoy him.
In commenting on this scene the spcake

All about them at
Raid that the Intcnio desire of the Jews to
encompass the death of Christ teemed to us
almost Incomprehensible. The Jews of that
day who looked back over the centuries to
call Abraham father were wrapped up In
the history of the glorious cast of their pee
ple. They were waiting for a Messiah to
come to lead Israel back to Its former splen
dor , and It seemed ! nct dlble that they
would tear from the sky the rainbow that
promised them hope.
Coming to the practical applications of the
subject , Hev. McCormlck said that as those
Who stood by could not know the weight of
the cross that Christ was carrying , so wo
cannot know what Is In the hearts of others.
Like those who stood by the road to Calvary
we can either help or hinder , and It was
generally easier to hinder than to help. The
people who helped Christ , and those who
stood by and Jeered , were no nearer the
Incident than those who lived thousands of
years before , or those who live now. Now
as then all who sinned added to the burden
that Christ must bear.
The speaker declared that thcro xvas a
practical as well as a sentimental side to
the subject. As long as a burden lay on any
human heart so long there was work to do.
It frequently occurred that we were Im
pressed unwillingly Into service that re
sulted In great good to us. It was not to bo
oxDccted that men would ecek those duties
that were most difficult to perform , but
when the burden seemed heavy It was a
Eource of consolation to know that some of
the happiest moments In every life resulted
from the performance of a duty that we
anxious to avoid.
In conclusion the speaker emphasized the
'act that while others helped Christ to carry
Is cross , Ho still bore the heaviest end
Imself. This was still true. However heavy
ho burden might seem to us , Christ was
tilt carrying the heaviest burden of all.

> r. Slmioii Itcinembcrn the Men Who
Died In lliivnua Harbor.
Special services jwere held last night at
Innscom Park MqthoJIst church In honor of
i'i jailors and officers who went down with
he Malno In Havana harbor. Songs prals-
ng the bravo who give up their lives for
ountry were sung and after Hev. Dr. Sls-
on had finished his sermon the congregation
urst lute patriotic applause. Dn Slsson's
ennon was a resume of our nation's hls-
ory from the" landing , of the flrst colonists
p the present condition of war.
"War Is a tlmo for retrospection , " said
ho preacher , "and by looking back It can
30 seen that all history Is the history ot
ar. It has been written with the cannon
, nd the saber and wo cannot tell how much
ongcr It will be thus. The history of tbo
ulted States Is brief , yet forty-four years
if It is war. "
Dr. Slsson then followed our forefathers
hrough their strife with Indians and their
rials In establishing a home in a coun-
: ry where they might have religious and
Ivll liberty. Then came the Revolution
.hat dragged on for seven years and cost
is 10,000 men. Next , In 1812 , the United
tales found It necessary to go to naval
, var in order to secure protection for Its
Itlzcns on the high seas and In foreign
iotmtrles. The war with Mexico was
romptcd by greed and was unholy In its
nccptlon , yet In the end It added much
o the development of the United States
nd Increased Its power for good. Next
: amo the struggle which resulted from
ilavery , planted In the south by early colon-
stu and thoroughly repugnant to the north.
Right triumphed and at this time , when
he two parts of the union are so closely
united we are engaging In a war for hu
manity's sake , In a war In which we have
o personal Interest and are standing before
.ho world as the champions ot justice and
After this war la ended , said Dr. Slsson ,
humanity will have a voice before the court
t nations. Scoffers at our navy have
ihangcd their minds slnco Dewey's magnifi
cat victory. "Remember the Maine" was
.ho battle cry which spurred Dewey and bis
irave men to this victory nnd thus Indirectly
he Malno victims were the inspiration for
pain's crushing defeat. Monuments may
be erected to these boys , but the monuments
ments which will endure for all time Is the
history of these thrilling events.
In conclusion Dr. Slsson prophesied that
.ho result of this struggle will be the closer
union ot the two nations who speak the
same language , who stand as the exponents
of liberty and have so many things in com
mon. Intertwined , the Union Jack and tbo
Stars and Stripes will appear on land and

Dr. Plielpn Dencrlbcn ClirUt'a Affec
tion for the World.
On account of the absence of the pastor ,
Rev. Frank A. Warficld , who Is now enjoy-
ng his annual vacation among the hills ol
Now England , yesterday morning the pulpll
of the First Congregational church was oc
cupied by Dr. Stephen A. Phelps , who se
lected for his text portions of the Dook ol
Revelations , I , 6-6 :
"Unto Him that loved us , and washed ui
from our sins , in His own blood.
"And hath made us kings and priest :
unto God and His Father ; to Him bo glorj
and dominion forever and ever. Amen. "
The words of the text , the speaker said
were uttered by a man almost 100 yean
old ; a man who bad passed the mcrldlar
of life ; a man who was the last surviving
apostle. The man was the gcntlo John , whc
bad been banished by the Romans to the
Island of Patmoa and had- been left then
to starve. Sitting upon a rock overlooking
the sea , John heard a voice behind him
which brought back the memories of Hlxtj
years prior to'that date. The voice In Iti
gentleness sounded familiar and looktnj
around John saw and recognized , Jesus , whc
Immediately reached .out His hand and llftec
him from his Bitting posture , after whlct
He dictated the letter that John was to present -
sent to the seven churches of Asia.
John was then caught up into heaven nni
given Instructions to write a description o
what he saw. There he saw the throne am
the city whose walls were of jaspar , bulll
upon foundations of pearls. Inside tlicsi
walls he saw buildings constructed of sollc
gold , In and about which were hundreds o
millions of angels. Again John saw the sur
clothed In black and the moon turned t <
blood , after which he found himself agalt
sitting upon the rock by the seaside ir
lonely Patmos. There and at that time I
was that ho wrote and saluted the sever
churches , overwhelmed with the glories o
what he bad seen.
It was then that the words of the tex
were fully realized and it was then that 1
became apparent to John that Jesus o
Dethlohem loved the people of the eartl
as no parent could and that Ho was ti

SUNDAY AT CAMP SAUNDERS
Omaha Soldiers Entertain Many Visitor * from
Home During the Day ,
THOUSANDS CALL ON THE VOLUNTEERS
Friend * nnil ItelntircH of the fin- *

Swarm nt Will Over the
Cam * > at Lincoln.
The Omaha boys In blue , comprising the
membership of the Omaha Guards'and of
the Thurston Rifles , who left home ten days' '
ago cheered by a wonderfuly enthusiastic
farewell ? were again happily reminded of
the esteem and affection entertained for
them by the folks at home yesterday. The
soldiers could not very well cat Sunday din
ner nt home because they were detained by
duty at Camp Alvln Saunders , Lincoln , so
their relatives and friends ran down to the
capital city and spent the day with them.
Not less than 1,600 , possibly 2,000 , Omahans ,
availed themselves of the opportunity , to
spend Sunday with the Omaha soldiers , and
the regular nnd special trains of the Bur-
Ington nnd the Rock Island railroads did
a profitable business In handling the ex-
The Omaha crowd took an early start.
Shortly after 8 o'clock , which comes around ,
earlier than usual on Sunday morning , the
treet cars leading to the twin depots on
South Tenth street began to bo crowded
with excursionists. By 8:30 : o'clock the crowd
bound southward over the Tenth street via
duct had swollen so that the street cars
could not carry all the people. The scones
about the passenger stations were enlivened
by the competition between the Burlington
and the Rock Island railroads. Both roads
wore running special trains to Lincoln , nnd
each wanted all the traffic In sight. A young
man with the voice of on auctioneer met all
street cars on their stop at the first flight
ot steps and Informed the excursionists
hat they had better get off there to take
the excursion train for Lincoln. But many
kept on the street cars nnd went to the second
end flight of steps , which by the by did not
seem one-tenth as long going down In the
n. m. as they did coming up In the p. m.
The excursion trains of both roads pulled
out about 8:40 : o'clock. The Burlington had
eight cars loaded to the guards in charge
of Yardmaster Robinson. The Rock Island
train consisted of six coaches , which were
partly filled. A third train followed on the
Burlington at 9:30 : n. m. , and It , too , was
made to carry a largo number of cxcurslon-
sts. The three trains arrived at the old
state fair grounds at Lincoln , surnamed
Camp Alvln Saundcrs , between 10 and 11
o'clock a. m.
Oinahmi * Stay at the Cnmp.
A goodly representation of the Guards and
the Rlllcs were at the platform to meet their
relatives and friends as they stepped from
the train , and It was not long before n nu
merous colony of Omahans had taken pos
session of the parts of the camp occupied by
the boys from the exposition city. Very few
Omahans went Into the city , nnd It was
Just ns well for the hotels nnd restaurants
were taxed beyond their capacity by visit
ors from other points In the state. The ma
jority of the Omaha'excursionists spent the
day nt the camp with their military hosts ,
nnd took the returning evening trains at
the camp station , a couple of miles out of
The Omaha contingent of the vast crowd
of visitors was at once multitudinous and
multifarious , and the same might bo said
of the parcels nnd packages that they car
ried down to "Brother Joe" or "Dear Will. "
Among all those who came to the camp
during the day the fair women had more
than a working majority ; they were pretty
nearly strong enough to adopt any order
of the day unanimously. There were the
mothers of the Omaha boys In blue and
once In a while they were accompanied by
the parent of the sterner sex. Now if there
was one of these fond mothers that did not
take her dutiful son and his tent mate a
chocolate cake , a homemade pic , a spring
chicken or some other delicacy from the
kitchen at homo she was so much in the
minority as not to be In evidence. The
fathers looked wise , told their sons not to
play poker and to otherwise adopt the hab
its of the Sunday school exemplar , and ex
pressed the opinion that the boys would
get sick If they ate too much of that "sweet
stuff. " But the boys had been kept on camp
rations too long to be deterred from getting
quick action on the homemade victuals with
out delay. The fair young maidens who In
sisted on upsetting the regular mess rules
by waiting on the soldier boys were cither
sisters of the militiamen or bound to them
by stronger ties. It may be possible that
the Omaha soldier boys might , at some time
enjoy a Sunday dinner more than they did
the one of yesterday , but certain It is that
they never have , at least that's what they
all said between mouthtuls.
' What the Hey * Answered.
The tents _ had to bo duly Inspected by
the fair visitors and the comments passed
on the manner of living as reflected in the
condition of the tent < wcre amusing and oven
ludicrous. "Is this your tent , Will ? How
many sleep in here ? All three in that one
bundle of straw ? Oh , goodness graclousl
Did you hear that , Mag ? Who sleeps with
you ? Did you ever know him before ? You
don't have far to fall when you roll out ol
bed , do you ? Can't you even have a looking-
glass In hero ? Where's your bible ? Did
you forget It ? " These and a score of que
ries along the same line were fired at the
meek young soldier nnd plainly disconcerted
him more than the harder tasks of military
All the details of camp life were explained
to the visitors at some length. To show
the young women what happened to a sol
dier \\ho offended his comrades by getting
a haircut or wearlng _ a robe do null a few
of the recruits were tossed high In the blan
ket by their oldest and strongest "follows.
At flrst It was purposed to toss every sol
dier who should get shaved , but this rule
had to be w ithdrawn oa account of the large
number of youths who resolutely declined
to let their beards grow. J
The weather on the whole was satisfactory.
The morning sun shone bright and warm
when the start from Omaha was made.
Then It hid Itself about noon , nnd early
in the afternoon a few drops of rain fell.
But that only drove the visitors under
cover , and the boys didn't kick a little bit.
It looked for awhile as though the battalion
drill , which had been called for 2 o'clock ,
might bo interrupted by the rain , and a re
call bugle was sounded. Then the clouds
cleared nway again , nnd not only the bat
talion drill was held In a highly successful
manner , but the dress parade and review
of the troops by Adjutant General Patrick
Henry Barry took place amid the enthusi
astic plaudits of the greatest crowd that has
gathered IB er bkMt the capital city la
many a long day. Trie battalion drill was
witnessed by * lawswcrowd , but the grand
dress parade at 6 < f tak was observed by an
enormous concoumnol people.

Beats In the gnat stand which faces
the parade grouM r/were'at a premium
one hour before itU dress parade was
started , and arounH the entire field the
spectators were roast * three and four deep.
From the hill tfcat. overlooks the drill
grounds a crowd oBXBDO , many In carriages ,
saw the concluding prent ot the day. All
of the 10,000 or MOM visitors to Lincoln
were on hand to Me-tho dress parade , and
almost as many * more were on hand from
Lincoln Itself. It Was a gala day for the
capital city , and the electric cars and the
dinky horse cars of Brad Slaughter's com
pany did not a thing but make money. It
required Hfty minutes for the procession ot
carriages and wagons on the camp grounds
in the afternoon to drive out two abreast ,
At the conclusion ot the dress parade , In
which the Thurston Rifles as the second
company of the flrst battalion , First regi
ment , nnd the Omaha Guards as the flrst
company of the flrst battalion , Second regi
ment , made particularly good showings , the
crowd of Omahans rapidly found Us way
toward the railroad platforms. The Rock
Island's excursion train- was the flrst to
leave , and Its six cars carried more.people
to Omaha than they bad to Lincoln. The
Burlington's excursion train of nine cars
'was ' well filled , and some of the visitors
waited for the midnight train. A tow came
back to the city on the afternoon train.
The excursionists reached the city between
8 and 9 o'clock , and they were all so well
handled by the transportation companies
that no accidents occurred to mar the pleas
ure of the day.

The Omaha Guards were yesterday sere

of this city. Messrs. Morrison and Purvis of
the Guards and Shears and Clarksoit , vis
itors , sang "We'll Never See Her Face

Far Away" with very good effect.
The entlro camp was thrown into a high
state of excitement yesterday afternoon by
the rumor that the First regiment was to
bo sent to Chlckamauga Park and th ) Second
end to the Philippine Islands. As this
would send the Thurston Rifles to the south
and the Omaha Guards on a long sea voyage ,
it may bo imagined where the rumor was
most cordially received.
An Idea of the throng which visited the
grounds yesterday may bo formed from the
statement of labors performed by one motor
car passing between Lincoln and the camp.
The register of the conductor recorded as
his day's work the receipts of over 1,200
passengers. His car was only one of many
others which passed and rcpasscd during the
day with every foot of floor space occupied.
All of the twenty-five recruits wtro phys
ically examined on Sunday by the medical
staff and It is a noteworthy fact that twenty-
three oat of the twenty-five passed the hard
examination that waa required of them.
This Is a most unusual showing for a lot
of recruits new to military service and
speaks well for the men who picked out the
recruits before sending them before the
buard of examiners.
The Omaha boya are Just waiting until
they shall bo called to do guard duty and
when they do company D , balling from
Falrbruy , Nob. , Is apt to know it. The lat

Pictures of the Navy and Cuba
The Bee has arranged to supply its readers with a Bet of
Portfolios which answer many important questions they
have been asking themselves and their friends for sometime
past. The Bee prints the news concerning Cuba , the Ha
waiian Islands and the American Navy , but where is
the reader that would not like to see these things as they
really are. The set will comprise
Ten Portfolios of Photographic Reproductions v
presenting 130 views , accompanied by concise explanatory text.
They furnish much valuable information about
HAWAII , CUBA ,
Countries where America has largo interests to be protected , and
THE AMERICAN NAVY
which will figure prominently in the protecting. Naturally every American
wants to know what sort of ships Uncle Bam uses in arguing nautical ques
tions , and The Boa's offer affords the moans of knowing the strength of Ills
loplo in heated disputes.
