The water committee states that  the recent shortness of water from  Lind creek was caused by the  bursting oi the mains and the  waste of aqua pura caused by people leaving their taps open. The  committee asserts that Lind creek  did not go dry and that the Providence reservoir is an auxiliary that  will have water pumped into it  from Boundary creek when the  city becomes large enough to demand it.  < Since Chief Bunbury came to  the district busiuess seems to be  improving in police circles.

Naden, member of the  legislatnre for Greenwood'riding.  ������������-nteri in the house that '"The  government agent in Greenwood is  above reproach, but the majority  of the civil servants were not only  election agents during the campaign, but all the year." '  Had  Mr. Naden  been  in a particularly veracious  mood that day  he might have said : "I have been  informed by a person said to be a  gentleman that the officials.iu the  Greenwood government offices are  gentlemen,  and  attend  strictly to  their official duties.    As to the former of. these assertions,   owing to  heredity and  early associations, I  am not in a position  to  judge ; in  regard to the latter, I have always  foundjthese officials courteous,attentive and efficient when doing business with them. They do not "mix"-  in politics.    Our federal  civil servants in  the  Boundary  are more  np to date.    In the provincial campaign fn which I was tbe triumphant exponent of Liberal principles,  the  services of some of the  federal .civil servants were, of inestimable   value  in disseminating  useful   information and   "conclusive"  arguments among those of  the electors who had not arrived  at a definite opinion  on questions  political.    We even had a member  of the federal  parliament in  our  midst during the campaign ; also a  large    number   of   Molson   Bank  notes.    The  federal  member  and  the-Moleon- Bank  notes  appeared  to be contemporaneous.    On election  day a driver of a team received  a $20 Molson bill for hauling  one of our  workers from the  railway  station   to   the   Imperiai  hotel, a distance of nearly half a  mile.    We hunted in packs.    Our  most prominent workers  and Molson bills visited all  the  outlying  towns.    Those who were indifferent    were   induced   to put away  their indifference : those who were  iu doubt had their doubts removed  with Molson oil ; those  who  were  fond of intoxicants ��������� had no obstacles placed in  the way of their do-  sires ;   those   who   could   be. ap-  nault.  M. A. Salo, Teacher.  Mayor Bunting, Alderman Johnson and F. W. McLaine are police  commissioners, and Mayor Bunting, Alderman Johnson aird W. B.  Fleming, the license commissioners for the city this year. The  recommendations for theso appointments should have been left  until the annual meeting of the  Conservative association. The commissioners can easily prove a  benefit or injury to business interests, and persons should not be  recommended to the government  for qppointraetit except at a fully  representative meeting of -the association. The gentlemen appointed will doubtless perform their  duties . satisfactorily to the public,  but under our form of government,  where citizenship, legal age and  residence aro the only 'qualifications for voters, the rank and file  of the association should be consulted when recommendations for  such appointments aro being mado.

Some  of the federal civil servants attended public meetings apparently  for the purpose of raising a disturbance while Conservative speakers were addressing the electors.  We promised a bridge across the  Kettle at nearly every ranch from  Rocsk Creek to Midway. One of the  most enthusing speeches delivered  iu ou.-committee rooms was by a  gentleman who had just been appointed to a provincial judgeship.  We told the electors that our candidate was going to continue a  resident of the district, although  he had made arrangements to move  to another part of the province.  In reference to the needs of Greenwood riding I am not in a position  to give an intelligent opinion, as I  have only been in the district a  few days in the past two years. I  I know it is the wish of 90 per  cent of the Liberals in Greenwood  riding that I should resign, but���������  well, that $1200 per.

Tho other night 1 lind- n dream  about him. 1 dreamed that he was  swelling arouud the house and finding  fault and raising Cain generally, and  the flrst thing in tbe morning, being a  believer in dreams, 1 packed my satchel nnd started for the depot. I arrived  at Mr. Bowser's house about an hour  before he was due for dinner and  found my daughter in bed sick with  headache. She was also worrying over  what her husband would say when he  came home and found the routine of  the house interrupted.  "Mary, you Just cease to worry about  him,"   says   1   as  tears   stood   In   her  ���������      HE   WAS    ' LEANINO     AGAINST   AN     IRON  ' FliNCE.  eyes. "Your mother is here to look out  for you, and if Samuel comes home  aud goes to cavorting around he'll  hear something drop. If he comes  home with a 'spell' on there'll be a  Bhlndy that'll make his hair curl."  The hired girl-had-been posted before Mr., Bowser reached home, and he  didn't get a hint of my presence.  When he entered the house and failed  to find his poor victim in the hall to  greet him he banged the front door  and stamped around until he was told  - that Mrs. Bowser was lying down with  a headache.  "She   is.   eh!"   he  shouted.    "Lying  down with a headache, is she?   Who  brought on the headache?" i  ''-'"   The   girl: Informed   him   that   she  didn't know.  "But 1 do!" he blustered. "She's  been eating pickles and oranges, and  bananas and a lot of other truck  Don't tell me she hasn't, for I know  better. Headache, and the house all  . trpset! Nice old ranch this for a man  to come home to! It's no wonder that  ten thousand husbands in the United  States are driven to drink every year  We'll see about that headache."  With that he came tramping upstairs, and I hid in the clothes closet.  , _ He made more noise than a horse  coming up, and he had no sooner entered tho room than he almost yelled  out:  "Well, this is the last of you!   I've  ���������warned you  a   thousand  times over,  but it has done no good.    It's'no use  ��������� In going for the doctor.   Any one can  see that your days are numbered."  "It's only a headache," said Mrs.  Bowser as she tried to smile.  "Only! Only a headache! And what  Is that headache going to lead to? Woman, if you have brought about your  own death don't blame me. You can't  hog down a dozen bananas, skins and  all, and expect to live more than a  tew hours."  "I haven't eaten a banana In two  months."  "Th'cn it's raw cabbage or some  such thing. Well, don't look to me  for any sympathy. I shall bury you,  of course, but don't expect anything  more."  Some of His Actions.  Then he tipped over a chair, walked  over to the bureau and opened the  drawers nnd slammed thein shut and  had begun to whistle as loud as he  could when my daughter asked:  "Mr.   Bowser,   won't  you   send   for  mother?"  -       "Send  for  your  mother!"  he fairly  "'howled as he whirled around on her,  "Send for that old bat!   Never!   Never  In this world!"  "But If I nm going to die I should  like her with me."  "Sho <*nn't come. If she was hero I  know Jnst what she would do.  Slio'd"-  "So do I know!"

"There's n heap of it. Samuel, and I  "want you to come along."  He shut his Jaw and stuck out for  awhile,   but   eventually   followed   me  downstairs.   Then he tried to grab his  hat und overcoat and make a sneak  for It\but I had nn eye on him nnd  prevented It. i finally got him down to  the dining room aud the table, but he  refused to eat.   That made no difference In tho programme, however.    1  began to talk to lilm like���������a mother-in-  law.   I am nn elderly woman of pro-  ��������� nounced opinions.

I. went upstairs to see my daughter and had scarcely got there when  I heard hiui rattling 'and banging at  the furnace In the cellar. I descended  part way and stopped him by threats  of the crowbar. Then ho took a notion to fix a door iu the kitchen, arid I  had to make some blood ' curdling  threats before he would cease hammering and sawing. Then he came up  into the sitting room and got out an  old harp and began strumming ou it  and singing. I didn't have to waste  words on' him on this occasion. As  soon as he saw me corning he cuddled'  down, and I left him playing solitaire  with a pack of cards as I went up  again.  Then Mr. Bowser sneaked on me.  Half an hour later I came down to  make some fresh tea and found him  gone. 1 am that sort of woman that  when I strike a son-in-law's trail I  never leave it until ho is my mutton.  I put on my tilings and went looking  for Mr, Bowser. I hoard of hi in on  several corners, but it was nearly an  hour before I overhauled lilm. Etc  was loaning against nn iron fence with  his hands in his pockets and his hat  pulled down, but I knew him at once.  He started off as I grabbed for his  ear. but a kind hearted little boy,  whom I shall certainly remember in  my will, ran ahead of me arrd-seized  him by the coattails and hung on until  I could come up.  "Come home, Samuel," I said as 1  got a good hold.  How He Was Bluffed.  He said he'd die right then and  there first, but he didn't. A policeman  came along and advised him to trot,  and thus I got him home. Then I sat  down and took a chair in front of him  and labored with him���������that is, I began  a monologue that lasted for three  hours, and every time he pretended to  doze off I gave him the toe of my shoe  and roused liim up. I waded into the  Bowsers for a hundred years back. I  compared him to an owl, a polecat, a  toad, a gobbler and a hundred other  things. I hurled threats at him that  brought shivers to my own spine  Whenever he tried to protest I menaced him. Whenever he tried to get  up to go I threatened his life.  Three hours did_t.be trick. The bluffer was bluffed. I wore him right  down. His - wife could have done  it years ago if she had only had  tlie grit and the pertinacity, If she  had gone for him the first time he ever  yelled "Woman!" at her he would have  -been as humble as a rabbit tlie rest of  liis days. After the first hour I saw  that I was gaining on it, and I never"  let up for a minute until" the bells  struck 1 o'clock. Then Mr. Bowser  suddenly collapsed in a heap, and after  I had rubbed a wet rag over his face  and revived him he rose up and put his ,  arms around me and murmured:  "Oh. you dear old thing, but I'm so  thankful that you came and that we  have had this delightful falk together!"  At the present writing he is following mc about the house and wishing  lie could die for me, and I think I have  him bluffed for as much as two weeks  ahead.

'  Candid Little Boy-No'm; the other j  boy stayed  home.-  liiiiill  mkm������mm  Pere 'Lachaise Is the largest and  quite the most Interesting of the Paris  cemeteries and named after the Jesuit  confessor of Louis XIV., whose country seat occupied the site of the present  chapel until the ground was-made'a  cemetery In 1S0-1. It covers 110 acies  of ground, Is picturesque, but quite unlovely. Hare wrote about the. tombs  that "weight was their chief peculiarity aud that all the monuments looked  as if each family had tried to pile as  much marble as possible ou to their  deceased relatives."  Pere Lachaise has a stormy history.  In 1814 the Russians fought the French  there ind gave them a beating. During the commune the Versaillals and  Communards fought several pitched  battles among the tombstones and did  considerable damage. But It Is not  so much witli the history of t' cemetery as with tho people buried In it'  that we have to deal.- A volume might  be fllicd with the mere list of all tho  celebrated men and women buried in  it, for, ns Victor Hugo wrote, "being  buried In Pere Lachaise Is like haying  mahogany furniture���������a sign of elegance."  In Pere Lachaise the monument  which attracts most visitors is that of  Abeiard and Heloise, the two most famous lovers in tbe world. The monument was flrst erected 037 years after  their death and brought to Pere Lachaise in 1S17 from the museum where  it had been during the revolution. An-"  other famous lover, Alfred de Mu.iset,  lies buried not far from the two willows over the graves of Heloise and  Abeiard. David, the painter; Rachel,  the actress; Balzac, Scribe, Michelet  and many other well known folk lie  near at hand. Admiral Sir Sydney  Smith, Lord Seymour and other veil  known Englishmen are to be found in  other portions of the cemetery, while  literature is represented not only by  great authors, twt by Lesurques the  victim of Dubosc in the famous legal  Lyons Mail imbroglio.  But Pere Lachaise has more romn&ce  than In its tombstones. Chatting one  day with one of the old soldiers who  are the keepers of this grim park, I  learned some curious facts about it  "We never have a dull moment," the  man said. "You may think that our  time here is monotonous, but you are  quite wrong If you do so. To begin  with, there are the burglars. The  cemetery is overrun with them. There  are "three kinds of burglars.. There  are the connoisseurs who often get  away with valuable prizes, for you  will be surprised at the works of art  of small size which people put in their  chapels. ' The window is broken, a  stick slipped through the hole, and all  sorts of things worth having are flshed  out; then the bronze stealers, who  take away as much as they can' carry  In their special pockets and make from  15 lo 20 francs a day at the game until  we catch them.  "A little "while ago a bust weighing  forty pounds was taken out of the  cemetery over one of the walls. But  the most curious form of robbery Is,  perhaps, that of the pearl wreaths.  Women are the principal offenders.  They select the new ones, which are  not weather stained, flatten them with  their backs against the tombstone,  slip them under their dresses, and  when they have, got away with them  (we have no right to search even suspicious looking customers) sell them  to dealers, to whom they tell the well  worn story of a poor workwoman who  has need of food.  "Yuu would hardly believe it, but  Pere Lachaise," said the keeper, "13 a  favorite meeting place for lovers. We  get lovers of all ages, and perhaps-  more schoolboys and schoolgirls than  anything else. But the three most  curious things we see here in the cemetery are the forlorn widows, the letter  boxes and the cafe." "The cafe?" 1  asked. "Yes. There are hundreds of  people In Taris who refuse to believe  that their dead do not enjoy after  death the good things thoy used, to Ilka  when they were alive. Mothers bring  apples and sweets and leave them on  the tombstones ot their children. People bring wine and glassqs, and there  is one old gentleman who leaves a  potato salad on his son's tombstone  regularly every Sunday. Of course  tho children soon And out these things,  and wo have never been able to convince the people who bring them of  the absurdity of doing so. It Is a very  harmless superstition, after all."  "And the letter boxes?" I asked.  "Lovers' letter boxes?" said the guard  Inn. "There are dozens of them In  all parts of Pore Lachaise. Sometimes  they are holes hi.the trunks-of trees;  sometimes they nre little hollows under stones.  "The Inconsolable widow is a frequent visitor. She Is a pretty woman,  and black suits her.

His Marvelous Feat of Pluck, Strength  and' Endurance That Won the Pennant For Providence In 1884���������A Record In Games Won.'  , Pitchcre may come and pitchers may  go, but the name of "Old Hoss" Radbourne goes on forever. I have talked  to many great ball players who have  lamented to me the fact that baseball  fame is so ephemeral that it was not  worth the gaining, and, while no doubt  this is in a great measure true, there  is one pitcher who has left a name  that promises to roll on for many,  many years.  Each yearliundreds of pitchers claim  attention of'the world, and each year  thoy are promptly forgotten. But rill-  ,nois produced a man who, although  now years deceased, has a brighter  name than any of the great multitude.  In tlie great campaign of 18S4, wlien  the Providence club, then a member of  Ihe National league, was fighting a bitter game with Philadelphia, a catastrophe occurred that seemingly would  disrupt Its chances of winning tbe pennant. A player named Sweeney, who  was pitching, was ordered to go into  right field-to change places with "Cy  clone"' Sillier. At that time it was not,  permissible to take a pitcher out of the  game. Whereupon Sweeney promptly  walked out of the game, leaving the  team with only eight men aud with  one pitcher, Charles Radbourne.  Two men tried to cover the field,  witli the result that Providence was  completely snowed under. A meeting  of tbe directors was held to decide  whether or uot the club should be disbanded. Certainly a professional team  was never in a sorrier pligl't.  Iladbourne was approached and the  proposition put to him. "I can win it  all right," said lie quietly and in a  ma I ter of fact tone.  Aud thou followed the most remarkable battle for a pennant that tbe  world lias-ever seen. Radbourne established a record that has uever been  equaled, one that will live when n-ore  expensive contests will have been  blissfully forgotten. Of twenty-se^en  consecutive games Radbourne won  twcidy-six. In four games with Boston l.e* had throe shutouts, only one  run was scored and only seventeen  hits were made." This defeat was suffered at the hands of Buffalo by n  score of 2 to 0, and even then only  Cvc hits wore made off him, showing  that the defeat was not due to poor  pitching. Needless to say, Providence  won tlie pennant, or. rather, Radbourne won the pennant.  But thc-gre.it player had to pay the  price. No arm could stand the awful,  strain without great agony. Morning  after morniug wlien Radbourne arose  he could not lift his arm as high as  his waist. lie had to brush his hair  with Iris left hand. But he did not  give up the game, fie would slip out  to the park about two hours before  the rest of tbe team put in an appearance and would begin the excruciating process of limbering up. rie  would pitch the ball only a few feet  when be would first go out, but he  would keep on trying time after time,  rubbing his arm with his left hand.  Sometimes his face would be drawn  up into contortions, but uever a word  of complaint left his lips.  Half an hour before the game was  to begin the players would slip out to  see how "Old Hoss" was getting along.  ' They would sit silently ou the bench,  waiting for his arm to get into condition. When he was able to throw  from second to home base a rousing  cheer would go up, for they knew  that meant tho winning of the game  for them.  Radbourne claimed for his hom6  Bloomlngton, In. After his great season with Providence managers all over  tbe country weie upon his heels. Flattering offers poured in, aud be was not  ur.der contract with Providence for the  nevt season either. When the contest  was over the late Ned Allen, president  of the team that season, sent for Radbourne. He laid tlio release before  him and close beside It a blank contract. Radbourne looked at them both  for several minutes and -then slowly  took up a pen and filled the blank out  for a sum only $2,000 higher than he  had been getting and tore up tho re-  tease. Allcu almost foil on his neck  and wept for Joy.  Radbourne's last year In baseball was  with Cincinnati hi 1801, but It was a  sad year. : It seems a pity that the career of so great a bail "player should  end so sadly. That year his work  showed grcnt deterioration, for the awful strain, made in 1881 was beginning  to tell on his arm. At the end of the  season ho was too proud to go Into  minor league baseball and so entirely  withdrew from the game. He returned to Bloomlngton, where he opened a  billiard hall. He had little to say and  In unwinking silence would sit in a  corner and wntch the young men laugh  ns they played. He would talk about  himself only when cornered, and then  but for a few short words. lie had always been an ardent fisherman, hunter  nnd sportsman, but be gave up the  opeii .life.'

Mr. Hewitt, in his latest contribution   to  this   interesting   branch   of  natural  science, deals with  some  of  tho   more   interesting   rarities    found  in    Sarawak.

It  is an  arboreal  insectivorous mammal about the size  of    the   common1 squirrel;   and   its  peculiarity lies in its long tail, which  is  bare and scaly  like that of a rat  for about the iirst half, but lias tlie  extremity thickly covered at the sides  with  long hair  after the  manner oi  the  barbs "of  a feather.

Mr. Asqulth was the Junior counsel  to Sir Charles Russell, afterward  lord chief justice as Lord Russell of  Killowcn, In the famous ParnelI commission. For nine months be was  immersed In tho intricacies of that  celebrated case. Ono day while snatching a hasty lunch Sir Charles told Asqulth that ho would have to cross examine the next witness.  "This Is most absurd!" exclaimed the  astonished junior. "Mr. MacDonald Is  the next witness, and he Is one of the  moat Important. Of course you will  cross exumiue hlra!"  "No," replied Sir Charles; "I am  tired.   You will do It well enough."  It was no use to protest. Asqulth  was dismayed. He wns totally unprepared. MacDonald was supposed to  be a shrewd, intelligent Scotchman who  would prove more than n match for  the ablest cross examiner.  When Mr. Asqulth rose In the court  he was at bis wits' end.

And then 1 looked across  the court to the arcade that lay beyond, and  I saw the exquisite "love  color" of the_ marvelous tiles that give  this mosque Its name.  The huge pillars of this arcade are  striped and  ugly,  but  between  them  shone wilh an Ineffable luster n wall of  purple and blue, of purple and bine so  strong nnd yet so delicate that It held  the eyes nnd drew tlio body forward.  If ever color calls, it calls In the "blue  mosque" of Ibrahim Aga.   And when I  had crossed  the court,  when I stood  beside  tbe  pulpit.   wJtb   Its  delicious  wooden folding doors, nnd studied the  riles of which this wonderful  wall is  composed, I found them as lovely near  ns they nre lovely far off.

It Is^n little weekly journal,  consisting of due double sheet of printed matter. It Is ostensibly run by  thieves nnd vagabonds for the benefit  of thieves nnd vagabonds. The bulk of  Its contents consists of contributions  from burglars nnd other folk who prey  upon society, In which they describe  their successful exploits. Its tone Is  humorous nnd racy. The text is enlivened with comic sketches, some of  which nre well done. Unless the police  suppress It It bids fair to have a pros  porous career.       ���������:."...-  It Is not lacking In advertisements,  most of them of a decidedly unique  character.

So privileged is the king of England  In his' exemption from any and every  law that one would naturally expect  his children might do pretty much as  they like. But Englishmen have always been very jealous of royal personages, and the fact is that prince3  eujoy very few privileges indeed. A  prince of the royal blood may be fined,  like any ordinary mortal, if his motor  car exceeds the legal limit of speed.  The Prince of Wales cannot be sued  personally for debt. If tbe debt is not  paid the creditor may take out a summons, but he must summon the treasurer, not the prince. If the case goes  against the treasurer the money is paid  out of the prince's assets.  No child of the king who Is under  twenty-five can marry without the  king's consent. Supposing, however, a  'prince over twenty-five desired to marry  and the king refused bis consent, then  the prince could give notice of his intention to the privy council. After that  he would have to restrain bis patience  for a whole year. If during that time'  either the house of Iord3 or the house  of commons disapproved of tbe marriage It could not take place. But if  both houses of parliament were satis-  tied the prince could marry the woman  of his choice.  A prince has not even the right to educate his own children, for it wns long  ago laid down that the king hns the  care and education of his grandchildren while they .are'minors.���������London  Telegraph. ^^^^_^  The New York Idea.

The  Lender says:  Meagre-1 details of a shooting  scrape drifted into Molson yesterday from tho country near Ha-  villah, telling the old, old story of  "blood spilt for another's love,"  Although we fail to connect with  anyone who can give a firsthand  account of the affray, the different  reports seem to jibe to the fact that  Bill Newman looked with longinc  eyes ��������� upon a young girl who has  made her home with the Free-  mans about a mile below 0. R.  Adams' ranch. Tho couple went;  to'a dance Monday evening, and  upon returning to ' the Freeman  home the girl was informed that  she must quit Newman or find another stopping place. Newman  decided for the girl, taking her to  Mrs. Younie's. The following  morning Newman and his pal, B"'i  Hurt, went back to Freeman's a I'-  (or the girl's belongings, when  trouble began. Knives, it is said,  were first brought into^ play, but  when Hart made a gun play the  ���������iced man and bis son secured a  shot gun and 30.30 rifle and  opened up on the pair. Hart  seemed tho center of attraction at  this stage of the game, and got on**  cheek badly powder burned arid  slightly peppered with shot. ' On0  bullet from the rifle also found its  way through his hat and another  through his saddle. They beat, a  liirj-fcy retreat, and as yet no arrests have been made.  Just as we go to press the Free-  mans have come to town, and we  are told that the case lias not  Droven quite so serious as first reported, nnd that the matter will  very likely be. settled without  trouble.

Robert Stevenson,   au   old-timer  of the Similkameen, is in  the city  soliciting   sympathy   and support  for tbe construction   of a wagmi  road through the Hope  mountoiis  to   Princeton.    This road   was "*u-  gun many years ago  and  twenty-  four miles of it was completed l*e-  foro   a   hot-headed  governor  discovered that the  people  were  ���������;)-  posed to a  toll road  and  stop;- -d  the work.    What is built is, b > v-  ever, almost as good as the day it  was   laid   down.     Tbe Dewdicy  trail extends from  the  end  of ��������� iio  road to Princeton over thesummit-.  Mr. Stevenson  proposes thai ihe  government   build   a   road   al rig  another trail, no longer than   Hie  Dewdney   trail,   and   thus, bi ing  communication   tc scores of g *od  prospects which are being developed  under great handicaps.    Mr. Si- v-  enson   estimates   the   cost   of   54  miles at a thousand dollars a mile.  The construction of the road would  give the only means of wagon c*in-  rnunicatiou  to the interior wl. on  this province has had since the destruction of the old Yale-Cariboo  road.    A good  road now runs to  Hope and all   that is needed  to  give wagon  communication to the  Nicola and Similkameen is a li ik  of   fifty-four   miles.     That   link  would  be an inestimable boon to  the Similkameen.   It would,  lie-  sides giving communication  to a  largo number of important niies  on Bearjjreek.aud Tulameen ci cck,  develop'a large trado   with   ihe  town of Hope, which is now g������ing  over   the   border.

A writer in tne Kaslo Koote-  naian telling about his boyhood  days in that town has this to say  about the Comiquo:  At that time it was hard for "a  small boy to locate any definite information as to what went on in  the Comique, for most youngsters  were forbidden by their parents to  go near the place or associate with  any one who did. I once asked a  Sunday school superintendent what  went on in that place and he  looked me up and down for a while  and proceeded to deliver the following in a deep, impressive voice,  husky with emotion and soda  water:  "The Comique, my boy, is a  place you should never go. They  have bull fights in there and barbecues and Christmas trees. That is  the place where public weddings  are celebrated and the devil is the  guest of honor at all banquets.  There is much dancing of cows,  and swilling of beer by swine, and  burning of bum cigars by all. The  place is the favorite resort of the  local royalty and nobility, and is  so respectable that many prominent citizens attend regularly who  would not bd seen going to church.
