Yejlerdiy will always be msrkrd with a
white slone by the rrcibteriins of this city.
For them it was the culmination of their
eflorls anil the termination of their labors Ihe
celebration of a victory as it were In tli
dedication of a new church edifice entirely
free from debt. This church the Madison
squire Presbyterian Is a Gothic slone build-
ln substantial and neat and is both an orna-
ment to the city and a monument to the pious
labors and tireless devotion of Its members as
well as to the liberality of our cititens gene-
rally. It has a seating cipacity of about 6oo
and is comfortably furnished.
Promptly at 3 o'clock the cserciies began.
Every seat in the pews was occupied while
some chairs were arranged in the aides for
those who came someuhat later. The audi-
ence was composed of people of various
religious denominations besidet that of
the PreibylciUn. They were a Htll-to-do
comfortable looking class of people in attend
ance whose Sunday clothes would stem to
them any day in the week. They were a
people evidently who enjoyed good sermons
ppreciatcd a picked choir and who brought
their religion with them from' the counting
house and store as something of supreme im-
portance and of vital consequence. The fol-
lowing was Ihe order of excrciies :
Organ voluntary; invocation by Ker. V. II
Dodson; first scripture lesson Rev. V. How
ell Muchanan; anthem by the choir; second
ripture lesion Rev. V. S. Falkcnburg;
prayer by Kev. W. 11. Preston; hymn No. 30S
read by the pastor; sermon by Rev. J W.
Neil D. I).; solo Milt Schleining; reading
list of subscribers and historical sketch by
Rev. Mr Ruchsnan the paitor; hymn 310
and benediction by the paitor.
The sermon by Rer. Neil was a Tine effort
lie took for the basis of bit discourse John
xvil 30-Jt : "Neither pray I for thee alone
but for them also which shall believe on me
through their word. That they may all be
one as thou Father art in me and I in thee
that they alto may be one In cs that the
world may believe that thou hast sent me."
The reverend gentleman spoke without note
or manuscript yet hit discourse was fluent
and brilliant his language was unstudied yet
always appropriate and elegant. It charmed
every ear it reached.
lie began by saying that he proposed to
show what Is the church of (lod from a Pres
byterian standpoint It seemed to him sin
gular that the question had not been answered
long ago. During the third and fourth cen-
turies controversy was rife and discussion
heated over the doctrine of the trinity
The high water marks the creeds
were then being formulated. The neat
w centuries foundthc scholastics and theolo'
giant discussing anthropology and kindred
ubjectt till reaching the days of Calvin
Lutber Zuinglius and Melancthon the science
o' salvation how to be saved aroused an
unircrsil attention nnd consequent Investlga'
tion. lie did not believe that a unity cf form
ritutt or declaration of faith would ever be
reached. lie did not apprehend that it was
desirable. Christ in the text ipeaks of the
unity of Ihe ideal church Ihe church trium
phant of those who have passed over th
(bod of those living and of those unborn
who were ransomed by the blood of the lamb
Christ did not here allude to the unity of the
visible church. Tim: and space contained to
many obstacles to Ihe accomplishment of this
Calvin and Luther and Cranmer thought
hardly a century would elapse till the question
of ecclesiastical unity would be stilled. Hut
almost seemed more helpless now
than ever. lie maintained that
all for whom Christ had prayed belonged to
the church from the time of Abel the first to
enter the heavenly courts down among the
latest to be received in the mansions of the
elect. At a Presbyterian he believed th
doctrine of predestination dominated th
whole field of the plan of salvation. Christ
taw no unity in this world lie taw as John
a iw a great multitude and to observing he
here prays for a unity of spirit a unity which
hid its origin In heaven that deep profound
uiily when all are one with God where It has
both Its image and model.
The reverend doctor alluded to the infidel
ity of the past decade. He characterized it
as twaddle. It prated of the brotherhood of
man in ornate rhapsody but it discarded the
fatherhood of God which made that frater-
nity possible and it is likely lo give us trouble
It was the reproach of Protestantism ad-
vanced by the Catholic church that there wat
no unity that the tendency of Protestantism
was towards disintegration that denomina-
tions are ceaselessly multiplying etc. For
his pait he did not believe in a dead uniform-
ity. I: would be a curse to coerce tarn to
live after the same form or by a single plan.
It would lit moral and intellectual ilavcrv.
It was true the speaker admitted that in
tome of the division! of churches the pinions
and folly of men have only been too compicu-
out. But In this God has made the wrath of
man to praise him. While the Council of
Trent was sitting and fulminating Archbishop
Cranmer wrote to Calvin Inviting him and
Melancthon and Lilher to come to Lambeth
psltce Hngland and hold a conference tn
order to effect a basis of union for all
the reformed churches. "I will come.
I would gladly cross loco scat
to accomplish this." Hot storms on the
oceans aad war prevented his going yet It
thowt how near to his heart was this desired
After all he concluded there is more unity
la ibis variety fn this diversity than some
suppose. Three years ago at Edinburgh
30.000 congregations wete represented there
at the Evangelical alliance all recognising at
lean the Calvlnistic system of theolrgy wliha
Presbyterian government and it told strongly
for unity when a committee of that body re
ported how narrow were thebarrlettof separa-
tion between thoie trained up In the school of
Knox those who were taught the Heidelberg
citechiim or thoie who adopted the Augsburg
confession. The approximation was wonder-
ful. P.ev. Mr. Buchanan the pastor read Ihe
list of subscribers contributing to Ihe erection
of the building among whom was one from
the New York board of 54000. It was re-
marked by many at the reading of the list was
concluded that our Jewish cl'ltens here had
almost to a msn subscribed liberally.
The pastor's review of the efforts made to
erect the Madison Square church wat brief
but interesttrg. lie ssid that two years ago
to-day he first reached San Antonio. On that
day he had lor a congregation only one wor
shippera gentlemen then recently arrived
from Chicago and who with his family were
now members of his congregation. He con
fessed he brgan his work that ol orgtnuipg
a congregation and building a church with
tome trepidation. Hut he relied on a guiding
and bountiful band lo aid him and hit work
had prospered. Gathrriog a few members
about him they first worshiped publicly in
Odd Fellows hall. On February 19 lS32
this church wat first organised. On Ihe 26ih
of March of the tame year trustees were ap
pointed and elders ordained which placed hit
young charge in working order. Shortly
after a Sunday school began its existence and
has continued to grow and prosper ever since
Then the Ladles' Aid society wat formed
meant were raited to erect a chapel adjolnlrg
the church which they had just dedicated
Thlt building wat finlihed and furnished In
two weeks' time. He felt that their work bad
been singularly blessed. The building which
they now occupied had cost the turn of $15'
700. This had ail been liquidated except tbe
sum of $200.
At the conclusion of Kev. Buchanan's ic
marks a collection was taken up and we feel
satisfied from the number of checks thrown In
the basket and the liberality of the audience
generally that Madison Squsre Presbyterian
church does not now owe a dollir. "And -of
tuch it the kirgdora" of religious progress
and enterprise in San Antonio.

many encores last evening rather disfigured
the harmony of the play making It appear
like a collection of odds and ends rather than
a unified whole. Our Strategists Is one of Ihe
best hits of the season and should be seen
