Dunkirk, with between fourteen and fifteen thousand population, has about a dozen and a! half; churches at the present time, many of them bting- the substantial outgrowths of houses of worship started In trouble and travail, when the city was struggling in hfi- early days tor a bare existence. The First Baptist Church was the first church estab lished, the year 1830 recording the g-ath- ering together of the devout little band 1 which wished for devotional meetings I m those days. The Rev. Joy Handy j was the first nracher of the ilock, and i the ronerreeations whuh he addiessed was forced to meet in the schoolhouse, and after that over Parson's wagon j shop, which was one of the best build- jngs in the city. For twenty-six years the congregation struggled along, gaining- in strength year at'ur year, and in IS06 it built what was then regarded as one of the architectural ornaments cf the eounty. the fin;- old brick church, in which the congregation continues to i hold its gatherings. A very short time after Mr. Handy started his church ten persons, proclaiming adherence to the Presbyterian faith, banded together i'nd a.-ked tho Presbytery at Bu)f alo to organize them, and they started the' First Presoyter-tan Church, holding meetings alternately in the schoolhouse and Parson's Wapon .run with the- tUntist congregation. The Rev. Timothy till-man of Yale ar.d Auburn w.ts the first leader of the fleck, coming, in the spring of 1S30 at an annual salary of $400, which was rather large, considering the times and the poverty of the congregation. Many ministers followed Dr.-StiHm.an and the church throve. IrTTFSO Dr. E. P. Edwards was the pas-Tor. He was deemed unorthodox by the Presbytery and forced to resign his charge, and when he lelt the churcjj so many followed him that he formed The City Congregational Church a ncn-uctarion church, which held its meetings in the City Hall. .The First Methodist Church was established in 1S35 and it followed the worthy examples laid down by predecessors and held meetings in the public school building and above Parson's wr.gon shop. The Rev. Mr. Tobblts was the first pastor and he remained for a number of years, the congregation becoming sufficiently wealthy in TS58 to erect a handsome building at 3d and Center Streets. In 1853 the St. John's Episcopal Church was organized and under the direction of the Rev. Charles Arey. It erected a church edifice at Eagle and 4th streets in lSST, when the Rev. P. I'. Kidder was the pastor. Then came in quick succession the St. John's German Evangelical Church, organized in 1858 by the Rev. Voight, the St. Peter's Eagle Street Church and the St. Peter's Fourth Street Lutheran Church. In the year 1851 the Rt. Rev. John Tlmon, the Roman Catholic bishop of the diocese of Buffalo, began sending missionary priests here to give religious teaching to the scattered families of the Roman Catholic faith, and as the orening of the Erie Railroad to Dunkirk that year augmented the numbers greatly a frame structure was soon built and the Rev. Father Lannon was placed in charge. An addition was soon needed and in 1851: a splendid site was selected and the corner stone for a fine house of worship was laid by Bishop Tlmon. The church was opened on March 17. 1854, and the Rt. Rev. Bishop Young of Erie' dedicated it in November of the same year under the invocation of the Seven Dolors of Mary. The Roman Catholic Church grew in strength in the fruitful field first seiz-eJupon us by Bishop Timon and in due season me t. .Mary s Lyceum was formed, the Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus was organized in 1R77 and the St. Hyacinth's Roman Catholic Polish Church followed in due season. At the present time there are in Dunkirk nineteen churches, the names of the pastors being as follows: The Rev. W. V. Rafter, the Rev. G. Churchill Rafter, St. John's Episcopal Church. The Rev. J. T. Bargeley, First Presbyterian Church. - Ttte ev, Jianion ti. JJay, l lrst Baptist Church. The Rev. Dr. Horace G. Dodds, First Methodist Church. The Rev. G. L. Sprague, Independent Congregation.

The Interstate Baseball League closed its season this week. It was a six-league team and they closed in the following order: Coudersport won 649 per cent, of its games; Erie. 585: Olean, 500; Bradford, 449: Kane, 443; DuBoise, 385. It is said that the teams all finished in fairly good financial condition, and steps have already been taken for continuing the league, with the possible addition of two other clubs next season. Jamestown was In the league at tlv opening of the season, hut owing to '. k of patronage the team was transferred to DuBois before the sew son w a s nail over.

When speaking of the Brooks Locomotive Works and 'doing well-merited honor to the memory of Horatio G. Brooks as the man to whom Dunkirk is mainly indebted for the Brooks Locomotive Works, honor should also be paid to another man and he a living man Marshall L. Hinham, who deserves to be recorded as the one who held up the hands of II. (j. Brooks as the darkness of fliiunehiil depression gathered thick around the great enterprise for the success of which the two men struggled with united eitorts for several ve.irs. Without If. G. Brooks Dunkirk would have been without a locomotive plant today, and when the history of those eurly years of trial for the existence of the works is conned, it is equally apparent that without the comradeliko co-operation' of Marshall L. Hinman with Mr. Brooks, there would have been no Brooks Locomotive Works. When the Brooks Locomotive "Works were incorporated upon November 1st-, Ih9, Mr. Brooks was elected president and superintendent, and Mr. Hinman, secretary and treasurer. One locomotive was the output for that first month of November, and one locomotive for December. Only twenty-seven locomotives were built during the first year of Incorporation. The next ye;ir forty-five locomotives were made. In the year ending December, 1ST-, seventy-three were building, making an average of six a month.' This prosperous condition continued till the following September, the time of the great financial panic. During the year 1X74 only made. What would have been the stae of mind of the two men. if they could have looked forward to tills .year of 1M5 and seen the works grown tcj its present lna n-moth proportions and turning out three locomotives a day? Following the year 1S73, the business fluctuated with advance at times, sufficient to stimulate hopes of success and PEOPLE PRIDE THEMSELVES THEPHETJY-CITY Manufacturing Concerns, Clubs, Beauty Spots and Civic Institutions Which Make Dunkirk an Attractive Place.

A general sizing up of Dunkirk, made by a visitor who .had dropped in to look the place over, would bring about something like the following: A splendid Academy building, a dozen and a half churches, reflecting credit on the goodness of the community, some broad and well shaded streets, an orphan asylum, three big manufacturing Industries and a small number of infinitely smaller ones, some bad wharves and piers, and 'some especially nice homes, a cozy . little City Hall. a hotel building that is more imposing exteriorly than interiorly, good telephone service, a fine water supply and a good eewer system, two national banks that are solid and substantial, a beautiful library building under course of construction, and the usual complement of bakers and butchers and barbers and booksellers, fire and life insurance agents, grocers, some cigar factories, a couple of newspapers which never become excited, and fifty saloons.
