Gardner Green Hubbard.

Washington, Dec. 12. -

The funeral of the late Gardner Green Hubbard will be held at the Church of the Covenant at 2 o'clock Monday afternoon. The services will be simple and brief and will be conducted by the Rev. Dr. Hallin.

Mr. Hubbard was president of the board of trustees of that church from the time it was organized, and gave the construction of the present house of worship his personal attention.

Before the sermon this morning Dr. Hallin paid an eloquent tribute to Mr. Hubbard's high character and eminent services and spoke with particular reference to his connection with the church.

The burial at Rock Creek cemetery will be private.
