The mission at the St. Luke's Epis
copal church in this city was com
menced last evening1, and despite the
stormy and cold weather, a large num
ber of the members of the parish were
present to take part in the first of
these great meeting:? which will be
held in every parish of the American
church and which is tended to awaken
in the church a clearer conception of
this church and its mission as the
standard bearer of Christ's teachings
in the new world. Father V. S. Leete,
rector of the church in this city, will
serve as missioner at the services dur
ing tne coming week, and a growing
interest has already been felt among
the parishioners that the church was
calling with its stirring message to
the American people. A nation-wide
preaching mission is designed, not to
revive for a brief space a gospel min
istry; it is designed to place a fresh
and permanent accent upon the lofty
ministry of the pulpit. If it is to be
effective in revivincr th- snrritual life
of the church and through it the! Halton Powell's "For the Love of

The sermon last evening was one
filled with the deepest meaning on
"The Greatness of God," and its in.
spiring words found an echo in the
hearts of the members of the parish.
The instruction given was on
"Prayer," which gave the church's
position in regard to this part of the
religious structure. The missioner
will have a question box during the
mission when different questions per
taining to the teachings of the church
will be taken up and explained.
The general committee of advisors
who will assist in the work of the mis
sion and to help the missioner in the
general work will be: Dr. J. S. Liv

"The constitutional amendment.
adopted a few years ago, providing ;Pose lt accept my position as being
tne initiative as a means of submit
ting questions to the people, had for
its purpose the eliminating of all
rrv-ral questions from politics. The
3tilature that convened following
the adoption of the amendment, en
acted a law which specifically stated
that no political party should endorse
any matter submitted under the initi
ative. The law further provided that
any qustion submitted under the
initiative, should appear on a separate
LaUot. It is apparent that the people
in adopting the constitutional amend
ment and the legislation in providing
the machinery for carrying it into ef
fect, safeguarded the initiative in
every way against political interfer
ence. I believe that a man who aspires
to become governor of the state
ought to have the highest regard for
r-t only the letter, but the spirit of
the law. In this instance it clearly
estops him from becoming active
either in support of or opposition to
right. In fact, the only position a con
scientious man can take. During the
three or four days I have just spent
in Omaha, I find that among certain
business men who are handling many
of the great industrial enterprises of
the city, and for the most part, tem
perance men in their private life, are
insisting that a candidate for governor
to be acceptable must oppose prohibi
tion. This simply mean? that a candi
date for governor who is acceptable to
ti.ein must be a person who will
onnose the carrying out of the will of
the people should prohibition carry.
"It is well known that the governor
has no voice in the adoption of the
amendment. That question is to be
settled by the people at the November
election. The governor can neither
approve nor veto the will of the people
as expressed in the election. A man's
views on the temperance question
ought not to be material to the op
ponents or proponents of prohibition,
because he has nothing to do with it.

Washington, D. C, Jan. 2!. Th
house of representatives has passed
the Ferris grazing-homestead bill
which would permit one person to
homestead 640 acres of land whiel
shall have been designed by the sec
retary of the interior as stock rais
ing lands. The designation will be
based on his opinion that the surface
is chiefly valuable for grazing and
raising forage crops, does not con
tain merchantable timber, is not sus
ceptible of irrigation from any known
source of water supplv, and is of
such a character that 040 acres are
reasonably required for the support
of a family.
Congressman P. D. Norton of North
Dakota tried to obtain amendment of
the bill that aformer homestead entry
of agricultural land shall not be a bar
to entering enough to make up G40
acres in all.
The bill is promised a stormy pass
