The Chapter House of the Chl Psl fraternity on' College avenue " caught fire about 4.30 Saturday afternoon, a six-year-old grandson of the janitor having developed an over-curiosity in matches which resulted in his touching off a curtain. A telephone call was sent to Liberty Hose Company, which responded at once. Later an alarm was rung In from Box 96 and other companies came. In some of the engine houses the alarm rang 95 instead of 96, which resulted in some of the companies going up Easton avenue instead of College avenue. A report started that there were two fires, which was erroneous. The fire was soon put out, only the woodwork around the window being burned. The students In the house had quite a scare, some of them starting to empty their belongings out of thu windows.- '- t ' . The charges were delivered by Rev. Dr. Searle and Rev. Dr. Corwin, of this city. At the close of the services the new pastor pronounced benediction. The musical program included a solo by H. Nevlus, H.

Mr. Meeker said In part: "St Paul, an apostolic preacher, in writing to the church at Corinth, finds it txpedient to explain somewhat the methods employed by him and hia co-laborers, and to give his testimony to the value of preaching if that preach ing has for its object the exaltation of Jesus Christ. "Talented ttachers among the Jews, wise philosophers among the Greeks, could see nothing remarkable or even praiseworthy in the preaching of the apostles. "There was no display of oratory, no eoreeous ritual, even the leader whom constantly claimed as their model, was apparently an unsuccessful Jew, who (Continued on page 2.) OBITUARY. WALTER M.

Blind. Deaf and Daub. She Enjoy the Call of Thene Wh Come to See Her. During a visit that Miss Helen Keller, the blind deaf mute, made to the Metuchen home of Mr. Henry M. Al-den, editor of Harper's Magazine, Miss Keller astonished her friend, Miss Annie Alden, by suddenly rising from her seat on the porch and' saying inher peculiar, artificially produced twnes, "There goes a railroad train!" Now the home of the Aldens is at least three-quarters of a mile from the Metuchen station of the Pennsylvania railroad, and not one of the little party with all their faculties, who had been asked to meet Miss Keller, had heard the train, nor could it possibly be seen. So Miss Alden asked with wonderment: "Why, Helen, how could you tell? You can't see it; you can't hear It? How do you know?" As soon as the words had been read by Miss Keller with her thumb on Miss Alden's throat for the stroke of the glottis, and her first and second fingers tracing the lip articulation, she replied with peculiarly sweet smile: "Why, don't you know, I smell the smoke." When the children who had been invited especially to meet her were Introduced, Miss Alden's guest passed her Intelligent hands on their little faces. She ended by saying to one, "I believe you look like my Jittie sister." Then-she showed them her watch, made with raised hands which register the time on the outer surface in such a manner that they may be read by the fingers. - One of the guests, who had almost declined the invitation, earing that it might be sad to meet a young girl whose life Is so shadowed, learned a lesson in cheerfulness by her visit. It would be hard to find a-sunnler, sweet er countenance than Mifis Helen Kelr ler's. BOH 1 SOUTH AMBDY.

The annual message of President Roosevelt was read as soon as the regular session of Congress began. The message was about 17,000 words in length. The chief interest centered upon the Isthmian canal question. To this subject not less than a quarter of the message was devoted, and the position taken is one of vneQuivoeal defense of every act of the administration. The President declares that under the enabling act of last year it has not been necessary for him to consider the alternate Nicaragua route and that the question Is not by which of two routes shall the canal be built, for this Is settled. It is simply shall we have the Isthmian canal. ' The message places the onus for the Columbian fiasco squarely upon the Columbian government and Columbia's efforts to conciliate the ITnlted States with an-offer to ratify the canal treaty is dismissed with the statement that It merely furnishes proof that the government really had control of the situation at the time the treaty was repudiated, but did not choose to exercise It. The mesage, in extenso, will found on pages 6 and 7. be GOOD COLLECTION MADE AT MT. ZION CHURCH Yesterday was rally day at the Mt Zion A. M. E.

The constable had Just locked a man up and he did not care to have any more dealing with bad men for a whole day. So he ignored the men who wanted to 'race. He sized them up as highwaymen. , After a while, he declares, that the men ordered him to stop, threatening to shoot him if he did not slacken up. The Marshal shot a couple of bullets into the air, so as to be In on the ground floor as far as shooting went. The alleged highwaymen fled. The story Is not as good as it would have been If the officer of the law had permitted the men to rob him, so as to get evidence against them, and had then arrested them both and brought them back to town in his wagon, holding them In check with a revolver. But then Marshal Offenberger's specialty is not burglars. C. B. STOCT MEMORIAL SERVICE. Memorial service for the late Charles B. Stout will be held in the First Baptist Church, this Monday evening.

Phone, 2131. 270 Burnet street. tt Nine members of New Brunswick Lodge, No. 324, B. P. O. E., have passed away since the institution of the lodge and In accordance with the universal custom of the order a memorial service was held yesterday afternoon to perpetuate their memory, to again express the esteem in which they were held and to give words of comfort to their families. The First Methodist Church was completely filled with Elks and their friends yesterday afternoon. Every seat in the place was occupied and standing room was at a premium. Admission was by invitation until 2.45 o'clock, after which the doors were thrown open. A number of Elks acted as ushers. Members of the families of the departed Elka were present. The Elks occupied seats together in the body of the church. After Chopin's, solemn "Funeral March" by organ and 'cello and "Tarry With Me, O My Savior," by Baldwin, rendered by the quartet.

Wheeler made the prayer, after whicn the quartet- sang "Yea Though I Walk, and George E. Clauder rendered a 'cello "Largo," by Handel. The oration was delivered by William H. Friday, of Brooklyn, whose subject was "Our Tribute on Life's Journey." He spoke for forty-five minutes,-in which he made clear the aims of the order, its duties to its fellow men, and paid a tribute to the memory of. the departed. He is a pleasant speaker, his delivery being smooth and even with no oratorical effects, his voice soft and mellow, yet easily heard in all parts of the church. He clothed his thoughts in beautiful language. He showed how in the present state of society the dead are soon forgotten and how the Elks have changed that order of things, rendering unto their dead their just mead of praise, speaking of them as they were known to the members. Mr. Friday dwelt at some length on ' the growth of the order, tracing its remarkable growth from a few lodges a few years ago to 900 lodges and 200,000 members to-day. During the past year the order dispensed for charity alone $200,000. Re told of the erection . of the National Elka' Home at Bedford City, Va., for the aged and indigent of the order.
