Not illustrated. 1886 edition. Excerpt: ...different churches with their clergy are found committed to the interests of the laboring class. On Friday evening the first anniversary of the White Cross Army filled Association Hall with young men and others practically interested in this splendid uprising in the cause of modesty and purity among men. There is a much needed chivalric element in the organi zation which cherishes a finer reverence for woman. The liveliest interest prevailed throughout the evening, and the growing crusade against fleshly lusts which war against the soul, in the heart of a great city with its countless allurements to profligacy, moves forward with promise of larger growth. The secretary reported that the membership of the army in New York City had reached 700; and that during the year 15,000 copies of the statement explaining the purpose of the organization and 10,000 pledges had been distributed. The several speakers were warmly applauded, and the deep interest in the occasion was shown from the fact that at the close of the meeting 120 applications for membership were handed to the secretary. The assistant-bishop held an ordination in the Church of the Annunciation on Friday, the 26th. The sermon was preached by the Rev. Henry L. Ziegenfuss, rector of Christ church. Poughkeepsie. Among the clergy in attendance and asisting in the service were the Rev. Dr. Seabury, rector of the church; Dean Hoffman and Professor Richey of the seminary; Dr. Douglas, of Trinity; the Rev. A. C. Kimber, of St. Augustine's chapel; the Rev. T. J. Taylor, of Philadelphia; the Rev. John Anketell and the Rev. Arthur Mason. Priests Orders were conferred upon the Rev. M. K. Schermerhorn, now in charge of the Irving Memorial church, of Tarrytown, and the Reverends Robert E. Wright, more
