Tho polnsant weather of, tho afternoon
and tho half holiday attracted a great
throng to the tabernacle, and tho musto
was again an inspiration to all who were
there, nnd "Itodoy" kopt everybody
happy until "Billy" appeared by guiding
thorn through those beautiful revival
Tho advance guard of today's nudlence
at tho "Billy" Sunday tabcrnaclo sought
to amuse thomselvcs by whistling and
singing N'It's a Long, Long Way to Tlp
perary." Albert Peterson, of tho ovnn
gellst's party, found a copy of tho song
under tho piano and started to experiment
with It on tho Instrument. Tho first row
of tho audlenco helped him out by whis
tling. Then tho second and third rows;
finally nil present were whistling and
humming tho song.
As many proved that they wore not
familiar with the air, Peterson loft the
piano. He was coaxed to try it again, nnd
alt wentwell until some old men, mistak
ing tho Borfg for a hymn, burst into it.
Peterson vainly tried to stop them.
"Checso It, 'Billy's' coming," someone
shouted, nnd that ended tho concert.
"Groat! Great! Great! Groat!" was tho
way Billy Sunday described tho meet
ing, when he nroso this morning. And,
while ho smiled and talked to "Ma" Sun
day and other members of his party and
newspaper men, he wrung his hands In
joy over Its success.
Nothing elso was discussed nround tho
breakfast table In tho Sunday home, at
19H Spring Garden street, for tho party
had never before seen anything like last
Although ho had seemed to wear himself
out when ho fought tho devil and all tho
sins that are flouting into tho fnces of tho
students of the pountry, ho was feeling
"Immense," as he put it, when ho had
finished hid morning's mall and started
to meet his workers In a conference.
Tho pollco told members of the Sunday
party that tho crowd Inside the tnber
nacle and tho mob trying to beat Its way
In from tho four walls would havo num
bered 63,000 men and women at ono time
during the evening.
Following tho conference with his as
sistants. Billy planned his topics for
tomorrow's meetings. Ho anticipates that
great throngs will bo unnble to gain ad
mission at each of tho services, and plans
have been made to have members of the
Sunday party address overflow meetings
In nearby churches.
Tomorrow morning, at 10:30 o'clock, air.
Sunday wllj preach on tho subject, "In
the Beginning, God." His afternoon toplo
at 2 o'clock will be "The Hour Is Come,"
and In the evening 'he will repeat tho ser
mon of the afternoon.
At tho overflow meeting In the Spring
Garden Street Methodist Episcopal
Church tho Rev. John Wallace Welch will
preach; In the Spring Garden Street Bap
tist Church, William Stover is to speak,
and in the Arch Streot Presbyterian
Church an address will be made by Will
Other members of the Sunday party will
speak in churches throughout the city.
Mrs. Sunday Is to talk In-tho Prankford

Monte will be at the Falls of tho Schuyl
kill Baptist Church, Miss Frances1 Miller
Is scheduled to talk In the Oak Lana
Methodist Church, tho BevMr. Welch

party havo been assigned as follows:

Church, Mrs. William Asher; Beacon
Presbyterian Church, Miss Alice M. Gam
lln; Seventh United Presbyterian Church,
Miss Florence Kinney, and Dutch Re
formed Church, Miss Rose Petterolf."
Never In the history of Philadelphia has
there been such a religious service as that
held In the tabernacle last night. While
10,000 or more men and women were Btorm-
ing the outside of tho big structure trying
to gain admittance, more than 20,000 of
the young men and women of Philadel
phia educational institutions were in
spired, interested, amused, enthused, en
couraged or were made to feel ashamed
that thoy had been foolish, or sinned.
It was a magnificent tribute to the
thrilling work of the evangelist. That
great "bunch"-as "Billy" delights to call
tho University of Pennsylvania students
led In the demonstration. But there -was
not an Institution of higher education In
tho city or for many miles around that
did not hav its representatives In the
AN INSPIRING SCENE.
Banners of all colors were waved high
Into the air. college musical clubs, the
University of Pennsylvania Afe and drum
corps and the gleo clubs of many schools
and colleges played and sang stirring mu
to and songs that made the rough rafterg
n .tronr pillars in the tabemaclo
Cheer after cheer rote up ft om the art -titudo
of happy youths and drifts out
through tho ventilators and could bo
heard, as far away as City Hall.
Timo after time tho cheer leaders from
Penn aroused the 9000 or. more men to
m Mdestflnest yells, and .always they
.ruled with a loud boom of "Sunday, Sun
day Sundayl" just aa though he had car
ried the Plgtkjn across tho goal line, or
had clouted the sphere far over the fenc
of FranKUn Fi.14 In U last half of a
ninth inning when tho score was tied.
"Billy" Sunday felt the grip of tna
wonderful tribute these young men and
women paid him. When bo arrived upon
the platform there was a mighty roar,
and as he greeted the cheery faces of
the? throng his strong Jaws came open and
he grated them with one of its broadest
