The Lectures

An audience which filled every seat in the Columbia Theatre listened for almost two hours yesterday afternoon (Sunday, January 28) to a lecture on Christian Science, delivered by Hon. William G. Ewing, one of Chicago's most distinguished jurists. The vast audience, which was made up for the most part of Washington's representative citizens, included many Senators and Representatives. They applauded the speaker at the close, and not a few advanced to the stage and greeted him. The lecture was given under the auspices of First Church of Christ, Scientist, of Washington, and was under the personal supervision of John Freeman Linscott, who, in a brief address, introduced the lecturer of the afternoon. Judge Ewing is a forceful speaker. His long career at the bar in the state of Illinois, as a judge of the Superior Court, and as United States district attorney has thoroughly equipped him as a public speaker.

Judge Ewing was greeted with hearty applause, led by a number of people from his native state.
