UUION BELIGIOUS SEEVICE HELD
Sermon la Preached by Presbyterian
Clerg-yman, Who Declares Home
Rule BUI U Aimed at
BELFAST, Ireland,' Sept 28.-SIr Ed-
ward Carson today wrote his name as the
flm to sign the solemn covenant of the
Ulster men which forever binds them to
use all the means that may be found
necessary to defeat the present conspiracy
to set up Dome rule In Ireland," and also
to refuse to recognize the authority of an
Irish parliament. He was followed by
thousands of the rank and file of the
Orangemen and unionists In the northern
province of Ireland.
Ulster day, the Orangemen's culminat
ing day of protest against home rule,
opened with an absolute calmness that
rendered unionists and home rulers alike
apprehensive as to what might happen
The people of Ireland, even those re
sponsible for today's signature of the
formidable "league and covenant," had
looked forward to the day's happenings
The weather was doubtful early In the
day, but before the Uuster men had begun
to gather for the religious services which
preceded the signing of the covenant,
sunshine flooded the streets.
The town was gaily decorated, the
union Jack being everywhere predomi
nant, one huge national flag enveloping
the facade of Ulster hall, the center of
Shopa and Factories Cloae.
Most of the shops and all the big In
dustrial works were closed, so that every
man desiring to do so might be able to
participate In the manifestation.
The spirit of unity prevailing among
the Protestant denomination was Illus
trated by the selection of the officiating
vlergyman. Rev. W. McLean, formerly
Presbyterian moderator, preached the ser
mon, and he was assisted in the services
by ministers belonging to the Anglican,
Methodist, Baptist and Congregational
churches. Sir Edward Carson sat at the
right of Mr. McLean and the lord mayor
of Belfast at his left.
A semi-military aspect was not lacking In
the meeting, as 200 picked stalwart mem
bers of the unionist clubs and Orange
lodges, wearing bright sashes, acted as
a guard of honor, standing around the
pulpit, while BOO of what is known as the
"reserve guard" occupied seats In the
The great congregation waa unable to
restrain Itself as notable personages can
Into the hall. Among the first was Lord
Charles Berseford, who was greeted with
a loud cheer. Captain James Craig, the
unionist member for East Down, reminded
the audience that the service was a re
ligious one and said 61r Edward Carson
wished it to be -looked upon as such in the
real sense of the word.
When Sir Edward Carson and Frederics:
EL- Smith arrived, however, the people
forgetful of the appeal that bad been
made, again broke into cheers, which
continued as the two leaders proceeded ti
the platform behind the Orange flag of
the Battle of the tioyne, presented to oil
Edward Canon In such a dramatic man
ner last evening.
Cheers for Sermon.
The service opened with the hymn, "O,
God, Our Help In Ages Past," after
which a short praper was offered and an
appeal made to the Almighty to "Stretch
forth Thy arms and help us In this time
of national danger." The first lesson was
taken from Isaiah xxvi, 1-9, "We have
a strong city," etc.
Rev. W. McLean's sermon roused the
audience to another burst of cheering,
which was surpressed from the pulpit
Dr. McLean declared the Irish question
at bottom was a war against Protestant
ism and an attempt to establish Roman
Catholic ascendancy In Ireland and begin
the disintegration of the British empire
by securing a second parliament in Dub.
lln. Ulster men were ready, he said, to
accept almost any program of social and
political reform, but they would not have
The service concluded with the singing
of the National anthem.
