BISHOP WILLIAMS HOLDS
INTERSTING SERVICES AT
THE ST. LUKE'S CHURCH
From Monday's Daily.
There was a large . crowd of
worshippers present yesterday
morning at St. Luxe's church to
attend the services, which were
in charge of lit. Rev- Arthur il-
liams. bishop of Nebraska. Th
services were in keeping with the
impressive form of the Kpiscopal
church, the bishop being assisted
by the Rev. Allan (1. Wilson in
conducting them. The sermon
was one of the finest ever heard
in the city and was delivered in
the bishop's usual able manner,
and as he is one of the most elo
quent pulpit orators in the state
his sermon was full of much
good to I lie members of the par
ish in attendance and highly ap
preciated by them, as the bishop
is very popular in tins city.
where he has been a visitor so
often. The choir of the church,
under te leadersip of Prof. II. S.
Austin, rendered a number of very
fine selections from the impres
sive church music The bishop on
this occasion conferred the sacra
ment of holy baptism on the fol
lowing: John Henry and William
Stewart Peters, sons of Mr. and
Mrs. Joseph Peters; Susanna
Elizabeth Falter, daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. (Jeorge H. Falter; Her
bert Rae Patterson, son of Mr.
ami Mrs. R- F. Pallerson; Ruth
McMaken, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. (iuv McMaken; Carl John
Cnrmack. son of Mr. and Mrs.

throughout were highly pleasing
to the members of the parish and

The Following Particulars of the
Exercises Will No Doubt Be
Read With Much Interest.
Last Saturday, the i8th of No
vember, witnessed the dedication
of the building that now crowns
one of the hills upon which our
cily is built, and which proclaims
itself by the inscription over its
portals, as the Plattsmouth High
school. For a year past our eyes
have been directed to the piles of
brick and mortar which we were
told would take shape under skil
ful workmen's hands, and form
at last a temple, where our chil
dren might sit al the feet of their
instructors, and learn wisdom
anl understanding. Al last the
promise is fulfilled, and our peo
ple may exult over the immense
acquisition which has been made
to their city. For if the build
ing, which we may consider typi
cal of the physical education we
should give our children, is
equalled by the system of in
struction carried on within its
walls, the type of the moral ami
mental, our children will enjoy
advantages hardly excelled any
where in flie Union.
The Teachers and Scholars
assembled at ten o'clock, for the
purpose of assigning them to
their several rooms, and perfect
ing arrangements by which iney
might be ready for their work on
Monday. Al one o'clock
began to assemble and soon the
building was thronged, from
basement, lo belfry with an in
terested assemblage, commenting
upon the perfect finish, the many
conveniences and the general
beauty of the building. At two
all collected in one of the large
rooms in the first story and the
exerciees were opened with pray
er by the Rev. Mr. McKelvey, who,
in a most lilting manner implor
ed the blessing of Almighty OSod
upon the school, without winch,
it could never prosper.
Songs and Addresses.
A chorus by a number of young
ladies and gentlemen succeeded,
entitled "Medication Song."
Following this Major Living
ston announced a few remarks
from Mr. Ross, the principal of
the High school, and the gentle
man in question very happily
gave some practical suggestions,
prominent among which he en
larged upon the necessity of
parents visiting the schools. His
earnestness in whatever he said
afforded cheering evidence of
what will be done by him, in the
Song, "Happy (".reeling to All,"
Miss Nellie lilack presiding at
Mr. Marquelt was then called
unon. and although he protested
against our reporting his speech,
we cannot refrain from a few
words on the subject. His com
pliment to the ladies in regard to
their forming the majority of the
audience was very neatly put,
and we have no doubt that when
the ladies of Platlsmouth do vole,
Mr. Marquelt may successfully
run for any office in I heir power
lo give him. He enlarged upon
the value of a school which
houbl have excluded from its
curriculum anything tending to
bias the mind of the child either
religiously, politically, or other
wise, a school essentially free.
A song followed "The Morning
Hreaks." Mr. Ross informed us
that but a short time had been
given for preparation, out
withstanding the music
Prof. Wise, our city and
our county superintendent.
followed in some most pertinent
emarks He enlarged upon the
zealous efforts of the previous
and present City Council; in
building the High school, ami
kindly admonished his hearers
lo be: charitable in their judg
ment of anything that had been
done which they might consider
amiss, in consideration of the
:reat good which had certainly
esulfed from their labors. In
retting out of the ruts of the old
vstem. he said, there must in
evitably be some jolting and jar-
ing, and the only way to over
ome them was by the exercise of
patience and forbearance on the
part Of both parties.
Mr. (leo. Smith succeeded him,
and echoed the feeling of all
hearts when lie told -how proud
he was of so handsome an orna
ment to our city, and how Platts
mouth ought to rejoice that
whereas she had heretofore felt
the lack of proper scoool privi
leges for her children, now she
had taken a step which would
place her among the foremost
ranks of the cities of the stale
in. that respect. We think poor
George has fully expiated his
"gray hairs" offense, so we will
omit all mention of that subject.
Mr. Sam Chapman, although
suffering from a severe cold,
gave us a few words of happy
gneeting and congratulation, as
suring us of his sympathy in
common with the rest, in this
He was followed by Mayor Liv
ingston, who, although he had
modestly put every one else for
ward, was not suffered to remain
silent to the end. The Mayor
look a bold and commendable
stand upon the subject of the
Bible in public schools. We do
not say commendable only be
cause it coincides with our views,
but because we like l see a man
stand up bravely in defense of
what he considers right regard
less of consequences to himself.
His remarks upon the fourfold
education of man, the physical,
moral, mental and spiritual, al
though probably not new to many
of his hearers, are deserving of
greater attention than has here
tofore been accorded that sub
ject. The inspiring strains of the
Hattle Hymn of the Republic then
greeted us, and with a few most
excellent remarks from Rev. Mr.
McKelvey, of which, for lack of
space, we must omit further
mention, the exercises were
Arrangements had been made
for the presence of several prom
inent gentlemen from abroad,
among whom we may mention
Gen. Morgan, of the State Nor
mal school; but they unfortun
ately were not able to attend.
We regret that lack of space
prevents our giving a fuller re
port of the exercises. Much that
was interesting we have been
obliged to omit very reluctantly.
however, we cannot omit some
slight mention of. It consists of
three stories beside the basement

A FEW CORRECTIONS
IN THE STATEMENT
ABOUT ALBERT GARDNER
From Monday's Dally.
The Journal has received a
communication from Mrs. W. R.
Gardner in regard to the matter
of her son, who was recently sent
to the state school at Kearney,
and she requests a correction be
made in regard to the statement
as to the family being in "poor
circumstances," as they are in
poor health, but otherwise have
plenty in the way of financial sup
port, and have a good home. The
letter from Mrs. Gardner is as
"Plattsmouth, Sept. 17, 1913.
"To the Plattsmouth Journal:
"Owing to the public comment,
and wishing only the truth to be
told, and the truth is bad enough,
at the best- My boy, Albert Gardn
er, seemed, when quite small, to
have a self-willed nature, which
his mother tried very hard to talk
out of him and to impress only
good upon his young mind, but
owing to other and larger boys,
whom he would make his friends,
and what he did not know they
did. so this all made it very hard
for mc or anyone to teach him
things that were good. His run
ning with bad companions made
my good advice in vain. I was
raised by parents who reared
eight children up to manhood and
womanhood, ami all were truthful
ami honorable men and women,
as I tried to raise my boy. By
being in good hands at present, I
know he will be taught all that is
good and taught to serve God and
lo obey his parents, so I am look
ing forward and trusting in God
that my only son may return to
us in our old age a truer and
better boy and be useful to him
self and lo others ami be a noble
man, is the wish of his mother.
