THE FORMAL OPENING.
Charley's Aaat Produced Before a Largs
Audience at the Frothiagham.

the love affairs of 'two uinlur-graduates.

ranged to give a dinner party In Ches

woven into the farce.
It was a clever and competent com

last night, and Its good work was fre

Arthur Lai kin's impersonation of the

Father Cullen preached the Rermon
at St. John's churoh last night on the
subject of temperance. The religious
Instruction was given by Father O'Cal
lan on purgatory. He reminded them
that the churoh teaches the doctrine
of penance. 'Sins much be atoned In
this world or In the next. If the sin
ner dies unrepenltant he will suffer
everlasting torments of hell, and If a
person dies forgiven by God, but the
sins not atoned for, there Is a purga
tory, which is a place of fire that
cleanses and purities the soul for the
sight of God. A soul In purgatory can
not shorten Its suffering by prayer, but
the prayers in this world directed for
the benefit of suffering souls cut off
days and years from the term that a
soul Is detained to spend there. Father
Cullen said in beginning his sermon
that he did not want to preach on tem
perance to 'the women for the reason
that he felt they needed remonstrating
with on this point. He wished to make
them advocates so that theln Influence
would go out over their husbands, sons,
and brothers. For the drunkard shall
not inherit the kingdom of heaven.
The ushers handed around to each one
present a' tottall nibntilnenoe promise,
which et forth that the signer would,
