THE PHILADELPHIA TIMES. MONDAY JfOTlNTNG. . FEBRUARY 26. 1804. FATHER SHARP OH SOCIETY AN INTERESTING DISCODRSE BY THE RECTOR OF ST. CLEMENT'S ITS STANDARD A ItOW ONE Blitaop Thompaon. of MUstiatppl, Dr-llvere a 8rnion tn tbo Charon of the Saviour aud lit St. Amkrew'a Rtb-Sellatlc Service Rev. Alexander Chiles' Sermon on a Royal Htchvrtiy. At St. Clement's Epbcopal Church, Twentieth- and Cherry streets, tho rector, Rev. A. B. Sharp, preached last evening on " Society." "Society," ho said, 'was the handing together of men for one another's good, such as upholding tho laws of the country, customs, etc ''According to the generally accepted meaning of the term, however, society is thought to be au exclusive class, made up of persons a little better than ordinary. As a matter of fact, it may embrace not the best, but the worst, people. In society the best and the worst are seen alike. " Society people do not strive for the highest good. Their aim is lower things, not necessarily the lowest things, but things that do not relate to their spiritual welfare, such as the pursuit of pleasure. Tho pleasure in itself may be innocent and devoid of real harm, but it cannot do good to any one's fouI. Marrying tor money is another thing countenanced by society, but which is in direct violation of the law of God. "Many allow themselves to he guided by the laws of society, paying little attention to the laws of God. While the opinion of men is worth something the opioion of God is worth a great deal mere, Jt is all right to seek to ber well thought of by men, but it is much better for our luiure welfare to seek to have God think well of us. SOCIETY'S STANDARD A LOW ONE. "We are often concerned about what others will think of us. We ask: 'Is this the custom?' 'Is this the proper thing to do?' 'What will my set say if I do this?' Instead, wo should ask: 'Is this right in the eyes of God ?'. "There are certain things which society does not take into account, such as character, the kind of livrs men lead, etc. Lifeisdoeper than society's ideal. There isa higherstand-nrd of life than society's standard. There is a higher judgment than the judgment of Bocieiy. A person may ho popular iu soriety and well thought of by men, aud yet he wrong before God. 'He mny prosper in this world aud have people look upon him with respect, but at the last great day tho judgmt-nt will be reversed if he has oieyed the law of society and paid lie attention to the laws of God." A ROYAL HIGHWAY. Rev. Alexander CIi lies' Sermon In Kbe-nexcr ItaptUt Church. The sermon lust evening at theEbonezer Colored Baptist Church, Mount Vernon street, below Broad, was preached by the pastor. Rev. Alexander Chiles, who took for bis text the eighth verse of the thlrty-nitn chapter of Isaiah : "And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it snail be called the way of noil ness." MBe It remembered," said Rev. Chiles, "that whatever Ihls prophecy may have to do with the return ot the tribes Jroni Is evident that all of It, Interesting and beautiful In description, can only bo fully realized In the Gospel dispensation. But we intend to consider It (Spiritually and as referring to the d'ospei way of salvation. Flrht'wo Iiava the way aud lu dUtlncultiing characteristics.

Archbishop Ireland Points Ont the Dsn-grr of Mixing Politics and Rolls ton. Bt. Pauu February 25. Archbishop Ireland preached to-day In tbe Cathedral of Bt. Paul on the CathollcChurch In America. lie said the Church had under the Constitution all the rights and privileges which she desired. The common liberty of the country was hern, and that was all sufficient. ' The great mass of the people of America, he added, were loyal to the letter and spirit of the Constitution, and allowed the rights of Catholics. Those who refused them their rights were fulse and should not be heeded. Borne Catholics do barm to the Catholic Church by their Imprudent methods of defending her. The opposition of an existing anti-Catholic party to-day would soon die out If It were not noticed. Catholic papers In crj'-tug out loudly against It give to it Importance and tire tbe country. It looks as if Catholics were glad to have a fight on their hands. Politics have much to io, no less with tbe defense than with tbe attack, and a supreme effort must be made by all devoted Catholics to keep tbe Church from entangling alliances with auy political party. Catholics individually are most free In their political alliances, but they must not bring the Church with them to this or that party. No oue political party in the country to-day owosorcau lay claim to alliance with tbe i'hurcb, ami it was a great misfortune for the Church were she the ally ofone special party. Catholics belong to all parties and it In well thut this Is the ease. When American citizens vote, their basis of decision must be not the religion of the candidate, but his citizenship and his personal fitness for office. To put in office a man because he Is a Protestant is wrong; to put a man to office because he is u Catholic Is wrong. The Constitution, which gives the suftraireydoen not consider a man's religion, but a man's honesty and ability. Tlie Archbishop opposed the custom of some Catholic papors to boast when a Catholic receives political honors. We should rejoice when a good man receives honor. Protestants and Catholics must all become tbor-ovough Americans In their political act aud their civil relations, nnrt there will be more religious discord in the laud. There Is no opposition In America to tbp political and social rights of Catholics that Catholics need to notice, and. there never will be. , CUILDS MEMORIAL SERVICE. Promluetit Phtlmlelpbtans Honor the Dead Publisher's Name. The service tn memory of Georgo W. Cbtlds, held last night In Temple Keneseth Israel, was a most impressive ceremony. Not only were tbe speakers eloquent, but the music-rendered was cf the finest. Dr. H. Berkowitz opened the services with prayer. John C, Bullitt presided. In an Introductory Rddress ho said: "We praise such men after they are dead, not because tney aro dead, but because they have lived so as to deserve tho praise we bestow upon tbem. Wheu a man has spent a lifetimo in setting an example to thoso around him; when, by the efficient exercise of his mental power, be has conferred everlasting benefits upon his fellow men, bis acts should be commended and praised, and we are here tor tbat purpose." 'J he topic, "George W. "hi Ids ua Kditor, was assigned to Charles Kmory iSmllh, who contrasted old-time Journalism with tbatoi the present day, speaking of Mr. Cbilds as foundlasr a school of his own. 'He seized tne helm, righted the ship and steered It to success. His distinction is the marvelous huccpss of his Individual creation. He aimed to reflect Philadelphia rather than the nation und he stamped upon his publication the accuracy ot care, purity and public approbation." To Dr. James MacAllster was given tbe task of speaking upon Mr. Cbilds as an educator. He said of him: " He took un interest in schools of every kind. He believed In the higher learning, as well as the niot practical form it ts now assuming. He bad an abiding Interest In the public school system and he was constant in seeking opportunities to assist Individuals wiio bad Ideas ot higher learning. He held Btronely to the opinion that women should have tbe same opportunity lor lea mine as men." The achievements of Mr. Child as a Pbita-delphlan were touched nport by Ituinpton I. Can-on, who said: "Philadelphia's Interests wore always nt hie bear', no matter where he was or what other things engrossed his thoughts." J. i. Rosen gart en gave Instances of tho good tate Mr. chtlds ever showed an host, while Dr. Joseph Krauskopf epoke eloquently of 1hcdad man's philanthropy, A. Louden snowdon spoke of the esteem tn wtiicn Mr. Child: was held at home and abroud and mild: "His Ufeot unselfishness t the lesson of the hour."

Colonel Graham, In tnrn, ftc-euxed Young of conspiring against tbe discipline of the pout and bad htm lucked up.

A Remarkable Man Who Was Actor. Writer. Artist aud Playwright. Steele Mackaye was one of the most remarkable men of his period.' It cun truly be satd of him that he was a genius, and that be was not really what tbe world calls a great man was simply owing to the fact that be was entirely too human. He throbbed so violently with natural Impulses that he was unable to control himself, und an a result his life wag one long series of grand Ideas, masterful plans, brilliant schemes, Inspired work, from all of wbich others achieved success. MucKayewas born fifty years ago In Buffalo,- N. Y. His fattier was it lawyer, with marked eccentricities of intellect, and from him Steele that part or his namo was us-sumed, his real coguomon being James Morton Mackaye inherited a mental energy of singular force but uncertain direction. As a lad he exhibited all the trails of the true scholar. Bfore he was fifteen years of age be was learned In Latin and Greek, a well-equipped engineer und surveyor and well versed in the higher scientific problems. A8 A BOY IN PARIS. When not yet M years of age he went to Paris to study art, his ambition then soaring in the heaven of Uuphacl, and so varied were the phases or his Intellect that he accomplished some measure of success as a painter. I 'or a long time he was the prince royal in the s indents' quarter of the gay French capital ; n member of every mystic organization ; the leader In every mad adventure; the creator of a thousand daring uuconventionalitles. Then and ever afterwards he had a sincere, abiding hatred of forms and conventions. He could possibly bo best described as a social Anarchist. For the opinion of the world he had notcoii tempt, b an utter disregard. There was a trilling episode at, this time in his career which, while unimportant in Itself, well illustrates the thorough sentimentality oftbe man, and the manner in which be nar- ' rated it. tn the wciter Is tvnical nf hix i-barni lug romanticism, .tie told it lu thiswise: A PABISIAK LOVE STORY. "When quite a young man I for some years studied art In Paris. Uno day while walking along a narrow street In the Faubourg HU Antolne, I saw In the doorway of ft little charcoal shop the sweetest vision of feminine loveliness and 'youthful grace my eyes have ever feasted upon. "I crossed the street, and lifting my hat, addressed my princess as respectfully as ever subject soolte to bis queen. I can't tell you what 1 said, but that evening I was received by ber father and presented to htm. 'Iam an American, I said, 'and come from New York.' He answered eagerly, 'Then you mnst know ft friend of mine who Uvea In Venezuela.' The acquaintance thus begun resulted 1n my becoming almost one of tlie family. The devotion existing between the father aud daughter was absolutely Ideal. 11 Is name wns Adolph Lagnerre. lift was a dealer In objects of arl. After 1 had known him Home time he told me biH story. Whileon a sketcbitifr tour through Saxony he had mot aud fallen tn love with a yonng girl, a German princess, who was being educated In a convent. "(she eloped with htm and wan promptly discarded by her family. Iheir married life was n dream of happinettv. Hut soon after the little girl came the yottnc mother died. It was onimI blow to lheartlt and aced hlin orfmaturely. Ho had but one motive nnw in Hi to bring his daughter u to do credit to the princely blood winch flowed in her veins and to elvehera dowry at which the noble family w bleb had disowned ber mother could not sneer. A BARE TREASrtlE. For this ht pinched and marred and toiled. When he had told me this ranch, perhaps be read lu my face that, Judging from his surroundings, tbe day of the aocompllHhment of this laAt desire would ba long deferred, for be spoke In rather a vague and mysterious way of having wenred poeaesslou of ft work of art Valued at HilMUl rrnncw.

II was .rrruiin, thai .aa brilliant and noble and srrand, but never an actor. He could, better than any other mati In this country, show men bow to act, but could not act himself. In one of his latest and greatest plays, "Anarchy," the title ot which was afterward changed to "Paul Kuuvar," he instructed Joseph Ha-worth In what was tbe best performance of that young actor's career. Yet when, during the New York run of that most remarluible play, it became uecessary to supply Huwortb's place and Mackaye Insisted upon personating tbe hero his genius had created, his performance grieved those who held him dear. Mackaye returned to this country from Paris aud London in 173, and at once began givimr mem hers of the dramatic profession au tuKiirbt Into the mysteries and ben titles of the Uelsurte sywtem. For years be In bored as a dramatic Instructor and playwright-. The amount of labor as a dramatist be accomplished from this time until his death can be Judced from the foPowtng list of plays, which are the children of bis brain and which were produced in the years Indicated: 173, Marriage ;" 176, Rose M Ichel ;" 1875, "Queen and Woman;" 1877, "Won at Hast ;" 1K7S, " Tnrousrh tne Dark 1S79, "Au Iron Will;" ttvO, "Hazel Klrke ;" 1K81, "A Fool's Errand;" 1XS4, "Dnkolar;" 185, "In Spite or All;" lfiSfi.

In 1880, as a result of Mackaye's labor and genius, the Madison Square Theatre, In New York, with Its famous double stage, was opened. It stands to-day a perfect little gem among the playhouses of America. Mack-aye's financial associates were two brothel's named Mnllory, who were Episcopal preachers and who consented to enter the field of dramatic management by reason of the high plane upon which Mackaye was to conduct the new venture. The opening play was Maokaye's own work ot "Hazel Klrke." It ran In the Madison Square Theatre for sixteen months without a break. Atone time five companies played It simultaneously throughout the country. It has been produced more than 5.U00 times. Hut mark the lamentable sequel. When "Hazel Klrke " had become a richly paying property Steele Mackaye had lost every penny of interest in it, and wben ihe Madison Square Tbetttre became free of debt the Mallorvs were iw sole proprietors and lis orlgluutor was Bhiverlug outside. He next created the Lyceum Theatre aud the l.vceura Sobool of Acting, and It whs opeued iu 1885. It was the name old story, l-'robman, the practical business man, aud Mackaye, the Impulsive erratic, did not blend, aud as a result tbe Lyceum Is to-day one of the best paying theatres In New York, with Frohman in full control. In 1801 Mackaye for a time abandoned acting and dramatic authorship aud determined to enter Ihe held of literature, AN L'KP17ItMHIfBD TOVKI He wrote a novel of such a daring character that no American publisher would print It. Robert E. lngersol, who was one of the few men who was permitted losee the manuscript, pronounced It one of tho most remarkable words he had ever read. It was entitled, "The Revelations of May!), 1868." Mackaye : claimed for ft that It announced a new era. 1 It audacity may be judved from Die preface, which the writer was permitted to copy. H was heuded " Warnioe," und reads its follows : "Let weak hearts or timid minds beware of this book. The menial food which it affords mH.v prove dangerously dyspeptic to such intellectual pigmies as the formalist, prig or prude, while the celibate, or tbe libertine will Hud naught but poisou In theso pages. "This volume dares to attack delusions that are licur, and sentimentalities tbat are sacred to a large multitude, ou whom the curse of conventionalism bas faHtened views of nature's noblest fuuctloutn. li rebels, with unhesitating audacity of expression, aeainst the teuehlut! of that antichrist Christianity which forces Christian mothers to aHsoeiate Mlmnie and humiliation wlih maternity an Infamy utterly revolting to an tmpo limed mind, and a crime which the holy spirit of the great Master, who loved the Magdalen, denounces with a merciless scorn. "These revelations seek to rebuke, with an equal fairness, the dogmatism ol science or hu restitution, tbe bigotries of mystlclain or materialism, the foul new of asceticism and sensualism, the subtle egotism of skepticism, and the deadly spiritual Indolence of credulity. "In a word, this hook Is a Voice crying aloud In the wilderness of modern world U-nes, for the truth that cleanso und sets free, and for tbe advent of au era lu which love, unfettered and uuopposed, will drive all low lustsoutof bumun lile. " . HIS LAST KXTERPRIHK. " In Jnly, .Hid, Mackaye went to London tp secure the publication of bis book there. While In the British metropolis he thought 1 of or happened across the grand Idea which I proved his ultimate downfall, and ubnndon-j lng his book which remains unpnb- llsbed bo rushed back to this country and injecting capitalist with his enthusiasm began the building of the Spectntorlum. the large opera house and theatre be attempted to erect Just outside ot the World's Fair grounds at Chicago.

Special Telegram to Thk Times. ' Harbisbubo, February 25. The annual report of Thomas J. Stewart, Secretary of Internal Attain, soys that the total passenger earnings of tbe steam rail roads reporting to his department fur the year ending June SO, MO, was $U'.i,211,087.K); total freight earnings, S2W,471,8.40; other earnings, '8,427,872.42, making a grand total of $277,587,303.1)0, as against !2li,858,5o5.80 tbe previous year. The total Income from other sources, Including Interest on bonds, dlvidendB on stock owned by the companies, rentals, etc., was 111,086,162.67. This makes tho amount received from eleven sources $317,223,406.57, as against S3G5,6S0,351.2O tbe previous year. The amount of passenger earnings for tbe year ended June 1W-', was 866,1011,281, and of trolght earnings HlOll,522,S02.85, an Increase of nearly 5,OCO,000 as compared with the previous year. Over 181)1 the Increase was about S17,000,000. Tho total Income lor tbe past year exceeded that of the year before 111,543,115.37. These figures Indicate u fair degree of prosperity and yet the results are not as favorable as they were tbe previous year, wben tlio In-dense was JhV27,774.7ti over the preceding year. " "In considering these statistics regarding the earnings of railways," says the Secretary, "It mnst be understood that our fiscal year ends June SO, aud, therefore, tbe depression aud stagnation of business, not only In our own Htute, but throughout the country, wtll not be us apparent as they will be In tbe report of ueit year. Undoubtedly the great ds- presslon lu business has materially affected . alt tn roads, and this, we mini:, is cteany shown lo some Instances by the reduction In income from transportation and in others by the absence of that Increase reasonably ex pected In the current of railway business. In other words, where tnere has been a decrease In the receipts for transportation there bus been a decrease lu tho percentage of Increase." BATES Of TRANSPORTATION. The following table shows tbe rates charged per ton per mile by the companies named for the years 1890, 1891, 1802 and 189:. It Indicates a geueral and quite uniform decrease lu tbe rates of transportation and would seem to indicate also thut the lowest possible figures bud been reached at wbich railroad companies could transport the products of the country: Namis or Company. 1S90 19 ism isra Pennsylvania wil .68 Ml .020 Philadelphia and Kejliling l.M U:j .877 .1118 ButtiUo, UuuhesUT and Fltts- blire (Ht .5(1.1 .591 .531 Ctimberlnud Vsllt-y 1.1D9 l.IUl .-& .Uwi ueiavHre. ickawaaua aaa Western 79 ,H .83 .1(38 New York.

ACC1HE5TS. The Secretary continues: "As Pennsylva-nians wo feel a commendable pride in the superiority of our railways and railway service, which Is strikingly emphasized when our American lines are compared with those of Kurope, or, Indeed, with auy foreign country. In nearly alt the particulars we ure fur In the leud, but unfortunately in regurd lo the prevention of accident we are badly deficient. "Tb. returns to this department show tbat tbe total number of passengers killed during tbe year In this Slat was 711, as aratnst 42 for th. previous year; tbe number Injured, 770, against 6Vi8, making I killed out of every 1,U29,8K4 and 1 Injured out nf every 195,718, Tba returns for Isst year show that I was killed out of every M7,"71 carried, and 7 Injured out ot every 218,005.

Aef Tnorauuw leartvy Feine and f ltamd Tarsal ere arerrweae end by Dr. ft fayee Btpeneeaot-te gfty yean aa appreeed etaad wy twe all CaneM and In no previous year have we been so thoroughly well prepared for an active Spring business as we are THIS TEAK and at THIS DATE. Each department is replete with new goods representing the very best production of American and Foreign Manufacture. This condition of our business has only been made possible by the fact that LAST FALL WE PREPARED FOE THIS SPRING by placing orders at home and abroad and, therefore, we are now in daily receipt of new and exclusive Fabrics- -made to our express order. Our European Connections are such, that every Foreign Market is open to us and through our office in Paris and Lyona we are always informed as to the change in Style or Fabric. Wo have also the moot extensive connections with the leading American Manufacturers of the highest class of Silks and Dress Fabrics and are in a position to justify our claim of being one of the largest Importers and Dealers in High Class Merchandise. Notwithstanding the SENSATIONAL ADVERTISEMENTS which appear in the daily papers announcing every kind of Mercantile Confusion, Changes, and Conditions claiming to sell good3 without any regard to value or profit, we are firmly of the opinion that there is only one way for a merchant to conduct his business avoid all sensational announcements, and in a dignilled mercantile manner advertise his business, adhering strictly to the truth. When we make a statement regarding a fabric or price it can be IMPLICITLY RELIED UPON and be accepted as an AESOLUTE FACT. ' . . . . We do NOT claim to sell goods without a profit, nor do we claim to constantly and continually offer all kinds of goods below the-cost of manufacture, BUT WE DO CLAIM AND ASSERT in tho MOST POSITIVE . MANNER that we SELL EVERY CLASS OF MERCHANDISE in WHICH WE DEAL at THE VERY LOWEST PRICE Merchandise of Equal Value can be purchased elsewhere, either in PHILADELPHIA or NEW YORK. It is a mistaken idea that a firm who confines their transactions to only the highest class of merchandise, who conducts their business on strict business principles, who avoid all features of a sensational character, whose warehouse is a model of a mercantile building, whose organization is composed of the highest order of Brains, is obliged to ask excessive prices. THE TRUTH IS EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE; a business carefully and not extravagantly conducted ; every detail of the organization maintained upon the highest basis, with ample financial strength to command the markets of the world, is in a position to sell goods at the very lowest prices AND THIS WE CLAIM FOE OUR FIRM. Our Organization is Perfect Our Building is a Jlode! of a Mercantile Establishment Our Financial Strength Commands . the Markets of the World Our Stock Consists Only of Merchandise of the Highest Class OUR PRICES ARE AS REASONABLE AS THE LOWEST We are now prepared in every department to exhibit the Newest and Host Desirable Silks and Dress Fabrics for the Spring and Summer of '94.
