has received a letter from her husband,
announcing that he Is In JJew York

sudden departure from this city.
He complained to his wife last Tues

the United Mine Workers by the mem

Brook colliery, at which he was cm
ployed. Ho had no money to pay his
initiation fee or dues, he said, and ho
was fearful that If ho tried to work ho

heard of him until Saturday, when his

Seldom does It fall to the lot of one
clergyman to minister unto the spiritual
needs of ono church for thirty years.
Rev. Dr. It. S. Jones, pastor of the
Providence Welsh Congregational
church passed tho thirtieth milestone
yesterday and gives every promise of
being able to continue for many years
in active service for tho Master.
In commemoration of this happy
event special services were conducted
yesterday in honor of Dr. Jones In the
old church on West Market street.
There were services In tho morning and
nfternoon and nt night. All were con
ducted In the Welsh language and tho
extremely large attendance at each was
a splendid testimonial of the high es
teem and great respect In which Dr.
Jones Is held not only by his own par
ishioners but also by the members of
other churches and by people of Welsh
blood all over the city.
A handsome picture of the clergyman
hung behind the pulpit and above nnd
below it nppeatcd the dates "1872" and
"1002." Tho pulpit itself was banked
with flowers and massive iffrlms.
Henry Jenkins presided at the morn
room seating 200 persons was added to
the church property.
The membership kept gradually In
creasing until somo thirteen years ago,
the Puritan English Congregational
church was formed from the older
church and was given a splendid start
oy me congregation of the latter. A
mission Sunday school at Dutch Gap
has been established under tho auspices
of tho churches and a great work Is
being accomplished through Its ngency.
One of tho characteristic features ot
the church is that its membership has
been recruited solely and entirely from
the working classes. Not a single man
of means has ever been connected with
it in any way nnd yet the church has
done more than the average church
every year In the way of raising funds
for missionary works. The Christian
Endeavor society has become Imbued
with the missionary spirit also and has
undertaken the support of a native
mislonary in tho Moduro district in
The present church building is In
rather a bad .state of renalr having
been in usp for so many years but tho
congrcgation has purchased a lot on the
corner of Williams street and Wayne
avenue and as soon as this is paid for
the work of erecting a now church
building on It will bo begun. The
church has a membership of about 2G0
at the present time.

these were Thomas Eynon, John D.

THE EVENING SESSION.
The evening session was largely at

Rev. Dr. It. S. Jones comes of fine
Welsh ancestry. Ho was born in Cir

From there he came to this city in
response to a call he had received from
tho Providence Welsh Congregational
church and began his ministry on April

of 12S at that time and was in a fairly
flourishing condition. Within the course
of a few years the church building was

OFFICERS THIRTY YEARS.
Tho oflicers of the church thirty years
ago were as follows:
Deacons, Thomas Hopkins, Thomas
L. Davles, David Jenkins, Henry
Christmas and Thomas R. Williams;
trustees, John M. Edwards, Grldlth J.
Roberts, Morgan Powell, Charles
Davles and Thomas R. Williams.
The present oflicers of the church are:

Thomas R. Willams, Evan Gabriel,
Luther Edwards, Henry H. Hitchings.
John Hobbs, Thomas J. Evans, Robert
R. Williams and Thomas E. Thomas.
Rev. Dr. Jones, the recipient of yes
terday's honors, is a remarkably well
preserved man, who though over 60
years old, has all the vigor and vitality
of a man twenty years younger. It re
quires something more than ability
to preach to enable a pastor
to hold the pastoral reins of
a church for over a quarter of
a century nnd Dr. Jones possesses in
no ordinary degree those characteristics
which bind a man to his fellow-men
in bonds of friendship and love. Stern
to rebuke the defiant sinner he is kind
and gentle with the contrite wanderer
from the paths of rlghteousnes. His
beautiful Christian lite has been a shin
ing example to the community in which
ho has lived and which Iras received
so much incalculable benelll from his
teaching and influence.
At 3 o'clock this afternoon there will
be a service for the clergymen from
outside the city who may desire to at
tend. This will be presided over by
John Grler. The clergymen of Welsh
connection from the churches of all de
nominations In this city will participate
In a service to be conducted tonight at
George W. Bovven, the well-known
writer of music, composed a poem In
commemoration of Dr. Jones' anniver
sary, which he read at the morning ses
sion. It was ns follows:
Oh maa of God scholar rofound,
And sermoncr of saered skill,
For thirty jears thy words resound
On holy Kion's templed bill.
Last evening, Rev. Thomas B. Payne,
pastor of All Souls' UnlVersallBt church,
gave the third sermon of his present
course on "What Unlversnllsts Be
lieve," taking for his theme "A Com
mon Sense View of the Blblci"
Air. Payno beffim by quoting from
Washington's Qluddcn's "Who Wrote
tho Bible?" where ho says, "Some good
people scorn to Imnglno the Bible must
have originated iir a manner purely
miraculous; and, though they know
very little about Its origin, they con
ceive of It as a book that was written
In heaven In the English toiiKUe. divid
ed thero Into chnpters and versos, with
headlines and reference marks, printed
in small pica, bound In culf, and sent
down to earth by angels In Its present
The Bible, ot course, was produced
In no such way. Human hands alone
wrote It, printed it, bound It. Llko
everything else made by the same
hands, we should examine It with tho
ripest wisdom wo possess, tho largest
experience wo can command, if wo
would determine Its real value.
Among tho many matters of Instruc
tion advanced concerning tire Bible, the
following salient polrrts were empha
1. Tho Bible Is not one book, but a
collection of sb.tyslx different books:
written by a great many different men.
through widely-separated Intervals of
2. It does not claim to be infallible,
and no such claim can be successfully
maintained for It; but certain of its
books arts absolutely trustworthy as
moral and religious instructors.
3. Its moral and religious instruction.
Is not all of equal value. Certain of
the old Testament books teach the law
of retaliation and vengeance. To mako
them of poual value with Jesus' law
of love and non-resistance is to con
fuse all moral distinctions.
4. Thero are a great many errors in
these books, as why should there not
be when we remember their authors?
They were not written to teach geology
F. They are the history of a race,
struggling morally and religiously on
ward and upward. In these books,
therefore, God speaks to men as he has
spoken in the history of no other peo
ple. 6. Just as my common sense tells mo
certain of the Old Testament books had
better have been left out of this col
lection called the Bible, so It also tells
mo that certain others of these books
record the hayings and lives of men
who wore certainly inspired by tire
Spirit of tire living God. Not every
one of these books is a revelation from
God; but others of them are unmis
takably revelations from God.
No wise man in this or any other in
stance will throw away good wheat
simply because he llnds it in the midst
of worthless -chaff. In these sixty-six
books will be found the loftiest moral
and religious teaching ever given to the
world. Every man ouglrt, therefore, to
search the Scriptures for that message.
The one who llnds it and lives by it will
be a nobler and diviner man than he
who tries to live without it.

Discoveries of Dr. Moreno
South American Graves.
Kroru tlie New Vcuk fcun.
Less attention on the whole has been
paid to the study of prehistoric races in
South America than in other parts of
the world, A paper recently prepared
by Dr. Francisco P. Moreno, the distin
guished geographer and anthropologist
of Argentina, who for years has been
studying relies of the ancient inhabi
tants, throws some curious light upon
the early history of man In that region.
The facts he has collected show that
man has existed from a very remote
perlo in South America and that inter
continental antl even inter-oceanic com
munications were maintained In prehis
toric times. Geological studies have
also shown that the conditions in pre
historic Argentina afforded unlimited
hunting grounds, arable lands arrd
homes to vanished races of men.
In 1873 Dr. Moreno was .struck by a
number of human types which he found
in tire graves of the old Indian encamp
ments In the valley of the Itlo Negro,
Patagonia. It t,eemed to him that lieio
was a general burial place of many
American races during their forced mi
grations to the extreirre south of the
American continent. Later, In the Ar
gentine territory further notth, he dis
covered .some of the races that were
represented In tlrebe graves. He has
proved that even men of the Can Iheair
type such as Columbus found Iir the
West Indies, traveled clear to the south
ern part of South America, where they
lhed and died. Another remarkable
discovery has been made with regard
to some of the prehistoric peoples.
There was undoubtedly 11 connection
between the South Americuns and peo
ples of Polynesian origin. This Is ex
plainable only ou the theory that n land
connection existed In soma previous
age between what Is now tiro Island
world and South America. In tho
graves of the Itlo Negro there are hu
man remains that cannot be referred to
nny living race of South America, but
only to those of Polynesia. Some of
the skulls fiom the Wo Negro am of
tho Pupuan type. Maori stone Imple
ments, have been dlsi'oeied at Cuacii

Islands have been br ouglrt fiom the
ruins of Truxlllo in Peiu and fiom

covered In Colombia, Ucuador aird oth
er places in Peru.
Tho remains of men who lived befoio
the continent acquired Its preterit relief
nnd contour have been found. Proof
has been obtained that a later rnco ap
peared at tho end of glacial epoch ami
that tho curlier people were pushed to
the south, whero today their descend
