THE DALLES, OREGON, FRIDAY. JULY 9. 1897
First Formal Gathering: of
MECHANICS' PAVILION IS CROWDED
Delegate Welcomed on Behalf of City
State and Committee--Meeting
at Woodward's l'STlllon.
San Francisco, July 8. At daylight
this morning began the prayer meeting
of the Christian Endeavorers. The 6er
vices were held in all the principal
churches of the city, the subject being
the same in each, "Prayer for the Con
vention." Among the leaders of these
meetings B. W. Wilcox, of Spokane; H.
J. Fries, of Tacoma, Wash., and H. S.
Gile, of Salem, Oregon.
Long before the hoar appointed for the
opening of the convention every seat in
the vast pavilion, which accommodates
over 10,000 people, was occupied, women
predominating, and from the. stage the
sight was one never to be forgotten.
Seldom has an audience equal in - num
bers and appearance been assembled
within the walls of a building in Cal
ifornia. At 9:30 the great gatheripg was called
to order by Rev. E. R. Dille, of this city,
and after a musical welcome by the
choir, brief devotional exercises were
conducted by Rev. Phil p F. King, of
Bolton, Tex. Then the welcome of the
committee of '97 was delivered by Rolla
V. Watt, who said :
"This morning our dreams are real
ized, our hopes are fulfilled, our prayers
are answered, for we witness the as
sembling of an international Christian I
Endeavor convention for the first time
on the shores of the mighty Pacific.
God bless you ! We are glad your are
here; welcome, thrice welcome 1
"We welcome you first and above all fon
the sake of our Master, whose banner of
love is over all, and whose servants you
are. He has said if we lift him np he
will draw all men unto himself; and
just as we represent him in our thoughts,
our words, our deeds, in our daily lives,
so will men see him. He holds In his
hands the solution of all our problems,
social, political and spiritual. It is the
part of Christian endeavor to take these
proffered gifts and offer them to man
king. "We welcome you, therefore, knowing
you are seeking to present the Savior- of
mankind to the world, that the world
may be made better. We cannot offer
you the historic sittings of Boston com
mon, nor the beauties of the national
capital; we are too young for such
thingB ; but we are proud of oar city, set
on more hills than Rome boasted, and of
our state, with its varied and unequaled

than the dark ones ; ascertain for your
selves what we are doing on the west
coast along the lines you have chosen
for your activities. Note the evidence
of material, moral and religious progress,
and in so doing, remember that not 50
, years ago, on this little peninsula, Yerba

was then scarcely' a hamlet, and was not
incorporated into a town until three

Alter the applause which followed the
remarks of Watt had subsided, the wel
come oi tne ixoiden uate pastors was
given by Rev. John Hemphill, who
"Several centuries ago a monk . of Pi
cardy, named Peter the Hermit, went np
and down Europe preaching the - firey
crnsade against those who held the sep
ulchre wherein the Savior of the world
was laid, and he inspired the people
wherever he went with his own wild,
weird enthusiasm. All Europe flew to
arms. The watchword, 'Deus vult,'
burst from ten thousand times ten thou
sand lips, and tbe armies of Christendom
precipitated themselves upon the holy
land with the awful war cry 'God wills
it,' echoing from rank to rank.
"Francis E. Clark the Peter the Her
mit.of the 19th century has for several
years been going up and down our own
land and other lands,, preaching a far
holier crusade, kindling the fires of
Christian zeal and loye on the altar of
young hearts ; and now, with a few bat
talions of bis mighty army, he has in

Spanish Forces are Preparing to Evac
Nkw York, July 8. A Herald die
patch from Havana says :
Captain-General Weyler has at last
decided it wise to evacuate Bavamo.
He has already ordered tbe inhabitants
to betake themselves to Manzanillo, and
has asked the war department in Spain
to authorize the withdrawal of troops
and the burning of the town. The ex
penses of maintaining the garrison there
have always been very heavy and one
which the end gained did not justify.
Much sickness prevails. The insur
gents are looking out for the landing of
artillery along the coast of Mataozas.
Tbe Spanish army bas never been so
weakened by sickness before. An offi
cial estimate of the number of Spanish
soldiers in hospitals throughout the
island is 2500. Not long ago the Luch

strong; today the battalion numbers

With the close of tbe Presidential Campaign THE TRIBUNE recognizes the
fact that the American people are now anxious to give their attention to home and
business interests. To meet this condition, politics will have far less space and
prominence, until another State or National occasion demands a renewal of the
fight for the principles for which THE TRIBUNE has labored from its inception
to tbe present dav. and won its greatest victories.
Everv possible effort will be put forth, and money freely spent, to make THE
