In Memory of Mr. McKinley
New York Universalist Club’s Regular Meeting Made an Occasion
to Honor Dead President.
The New York Universalist Club’s one hundred
and thirtieth regular meeting, held last night at the St. Denis Hotel, was made
a memorial occasion in honor of the dead President, William McKinley. After
dinner the Rev. Henry R. Ross, President of the club, introduced the speaker
of the evening, the Rev. Dr. Robert S. MacArthur of Calvary Baptist Church,
who made an eloquent address on the subject, “William McKinley; An Appreciation.”
Dr. MacArthur ranked President McKinley with Washington and Lincoln, and paid him fervent tribute as a dutiful son, a heroic soldier, a thoughtful and patient statesman, a devoted, noble husband, and a patriotic American.
C. W. De Lyon Nichols, Ph. D., who was a chaplain on Blackwell’s Island and assistant rector of St. Luke’s, and who became a Catholic, made an address on “The Dusk of Nations.” It treated of social conditions in Paris, Rome, London, and New York.
