11 THK NORFOLK NEWS : FRIDAY MARCH 80,15)00. ) WOMAN'3 CLUO STARTING MOVE MENT TO THAT END. WILL DEQIN SMALL AND GROW With a Small Fund on Hand Now and Volumes to be Secured From a Dook Social , It Is Delleved the Club Will be Able to Start May 1. The Norfolk's Woman's dub lining- wntetl movement nt tliolr mooting this week which has for Its attainment the establishment of a llhrury for Nor- folk. Every person Interested In the city will hope Mmi nothing miiy occur which will In mi. way Interfere with the worthy object , ami the ladles will lie given every assistance possible. II IH not expected to Htart on a largo Nealo but the Woman's club plan to es tablish the nucloiiH of what In hopuil will grow Into a well patronized free public library In the near future As a preliminary to the project It HPOIUH that the club IHIH for BOIUO tlmo liwn accumulating n fund , which IB called the library fund , and which now contains about $100 In CHHI. ! ThlH In the nest egg of the plan. It will ho remembered that Homo yours ago Col. .1. 1C. Simpson , now deceased , ralnod Quito a fund toward u lllirnry , and It was one of hlH fondoHt dreams that lie might bequeath through bin offortH mich a puhllo ItiHtltutlon to the town which ho loved. An aHHOclalUm wan formed at that tlmo and the old Cath olic church was purchased an a library Imlldlng , but a aovoro wind Hlorm dam- ngod the building BO badly that the nssoclatlon was forced to dispose of it nt a IOHB. The trustees of that as sociation were Dr. IF. .T. Cole , .T. 13. BimpHon , 0. A. Lulhart and Prof. O'Connor. Mr. O'Connor has gouo to the Canal /ono , Mr. Simpson and Mr. Lulltart are both deceased , leaving Dr. Cole as the nolo olllclal ropreHontatlvo of the association. At the tlmo of closing up the affairs of the associa tion there wan n cash balance on hand of about $180. As the money was rulnod for library purposes , Dr. Cole IB disposed to place thin balance In the hands of the Womau'H club to Hid lu their efforts In again trying to establish a library , and as It was raised for that purpose by Col. Simpson this plan moots with general approval. ThuR with $180 ! at their command , the members of the club feel that they are now ready to nmko a start. Their plan contemplates the llrst move on April 19 , when they will give a book social at the parlors of the First Con gregational church. A musical and literary program will bo provided as imtortalnmont , and the priceof ad mission will be ono book suitable to find a place in a general library. In this way It Is believed the women will Kccnro a start of at least ono hundred Htandard volumes , and the amount of money on hand will also bo Invested In l > ooks , making a very respectable beginning , The ladles have gene so far with their project aa to partially secure a room In the Bishop block where the library will bo Installed. This will bo comfortably lighted and heated , and nt the outset will bo kept open one day n week , probably Saturday , the mem bers of the club taking turns In keep ing the room open to exchange books nnd attend to the business of the II- lirarv. The project further contemplates so liciting memberships for which It IB planned to collect a fee of $1.00 a year , the money to be used In defraying ex penses of rout , etc. , and the balance ( o bo Invested in now hooka. It IB hoped now to have the library ready to open by May 1. As to the need of a public library In Norfolk there is no question. Although several efforts have been made lu the past to establish a library , all of them liavo met with failure , and It Is be lieved that the only practical manner in which U ) bring results Is to star in a modest way , as the Woman's clul proposes to do. It Is their ambltloi to got the movement started and se euro public interest In It until such i time as the city council , perhaps , wll take hold of the matter and make I a free public library. Many other tous have started It n similar manner In fact it Is asserl ed that there Is scarcely a public 1 forary in existence that did not hav its beginning In a small way and gro\ as the public demand Increased. Th Woman's club Is certainly undertaking ing a worthy project and should hav the hearty support and co-oporatlon o every person in town. WILL MOVE TO NORFOLK. Frank H.

ATTEMPT WAS MADE TO COMPRO MISE DEPOT PROBLEM. OPEN STREET TO PEDESTRIANS A Proposition Wan Made to Rcmon- strators Yesterday , Granting a Side walk Through the Street , Thus OpenIng - Ing Trains Is Turned Down. Another effort , made on the part of Itlzons Interested In accepting the s'orthwestern railroad's proposition to ulld a $15,000 depot In Norfolk , to oinpromlso the problem with those vho have Issued an Injunction against lie city council , restraining that body nun passing the ordinance providing or the closing of Philip avenue , was uulo ycHtorday afternoon , but failed. The ground upon which this attempt I a compromise was made , was to the ffoct that Philip avenue should bo ept open for pedestrians with a side- Milk running along the street and this alk to be maintained , but closing the venue to vehicles. U Is reliably stated that the North- ostern company would accept a prop- sltlon of this sort , and It Is said that , ' such a compromise were made , keep- ng the street open for pedestrians , ils would do away with the objections resented by remonstrators aa to rains blocking the thoroughfare and ot being cut In two. It was argued by these In favor of uiklng this compromise that , inas- inch as the main argument of the re- lonstrators against closing the street as that the school children could not et through the street , this might do way with that objection and solve the roblem. But these who are leading the lovoment to prevent the closing of 10 street , were unwilling to compro- ilso In this way and the Injunction till stands.

Otto Tappert had friends not only n Norfolk but ho could count them the hundreds all ever north No- raska , where ho has been traveling or the Standard Oil company for uiny years , having covered the torrl- ory oven before there were railroads ud when ho had to make his trips ) y stage.

Members of the United Commercial Travelers and Elks met at the Elks club rooms at 2 o'clock , and sent a lolegatlon of more than eighty to the 1'apport homo to act as an escort.

The capacity of the church was en tirely Inadequate to seat the large crowd of people present. Seats were reserved for the Elks and traveling nen on ono side of the room. The Episcopal funeral service was conduct ed by Mr. Wollls and at Its close Judge lobcrtson , representing the Elks and n response to request , pronounced a icautiful eulogy over the remains of the brother who was always present it roll call.

Following is the text of Judge Rob ertson's address , delivered aa repre sentative of the Elks at the funera of Mr. Tapport : My Friends : Wo have met here upon this solemn occasion to pay our last tribute of love and respect to thq memory of our brother who has gen < before. But yesterday as it were , ho was ono of us In the full vigor of life and health , loving and beloved , toda > nothing remains to remind us of hln except his lifeless clay nnd the re mcmbranco of the wealth of affection ho had for his kindred and friends Wo say that ho is dead , therefore wo can do no moro for him now than to place flowers upon the casket which contains his mortal remains , pay our feeble tribute , and when wo have con signed him to Mother Earth , strew ( lowers over his grave and keep green In our memories his deeds of kindness and of love. This then being true , my friends mr duty IH rather to the living than to the dead. No man can pass through this life without leaving behind him the lin- liress of his character to a greater or ess extent upon those with whom ho was associated. I do not mean to say dial our brother had no faults ho wan mortal like all of us , therefore ho was not faultless there are none of IB perfect Above and beyond all of bis shortcomings , however , he was losseHsed of UIOKO characteristics that ; o to make up the qualities In a man , which endearfl him to his family anil ils friends. It remains for us to em- Male bis virtues and his goodness , to write his faults upon the sand , and iresei'Ne his virtues upon the tablets > f our love and memory. llrothor Otto F. Tappert was born n Germany on the 2th ( ! day of Octo ber , 1852 , and came to this country In ISliti , At the ago of eighteen he on- orod the service of the Standard Oil company and remained with the one employer In various capacities till the line of hla death. He waa one of the ) Ioneor traveling salesmen of his com- mny , as loyal to hla employers aa he was to hla adopted country. In such ilgh esteem was ho held by his fellow traveling men that at the time of his lemlso ho waa holding the highest illlcc In the gift of the United Com- norelal Travelers In this state , that ) f grand counselor. And right hero et mo say of Brother Titppert and the nen of his craft , the commercial trav elers , that I can only compare theme o a soldier. When on duty they are inder orders ; In sunshine and In storm , In good times and In bad times , vherover you may go , In the sunny southland , or In the northern climes , in the rock bound coast of the Allan- Ic , or on the wave washed shores of ho Pacific , on the mountain side or n the valley , you will find the Amor- can traveling man with hla grip. He a one of the best types of our citizenship - ship , he carries the gospel of com- nerco and of trade to the remotest corners of the world. Ho Is loyal , constant and true , to his family , his country , and his employer. Ono of hose waa he whoso remains now lie icfore us. Ills length of service with such an exacting employer speaks vol- lines for his ability , zeal and Integ rity. And in a worldly sense , the best rlliuto I can pay him la to say , that 10 was an American traveling man , which In Itself IB and should bo a jadgo of honor. I know naught of his enemies , hut 1 do know his friends ire legion. As an Instance of his loyalty and lovotlon : Brother Tappert was elect ed tyler of Norfolk lodge , number (153 ( , llonovolent and Protective Order of Elks at the time of Us organization In January , 1901 , and served In that ca pacity up to the tlmo of his decease. He never missed but one meeting of the ledge up to two weeks ago , and that was on account of being snowed In at Oakdale , and then ho called up an officer of the lodge by telephone to explain his absence. I do not know how others may view the matter , but It seemed to mo peculiarly character istic of htm that It so happened that his last moments on this earth should bo spent where he loved so well to be , that he should , In that place , where ho knew ho had loyal and devoted friends , calmly and peacefully drop Into his last Bleep. I might. If I would , go Into detail as to the good and kindly qualities of our brother , and the social side of his nature , but enough has been said to Indicate the kind of man he was. Wo can not heal the wounda his depar ture has caused , but we can be to his family , In a measure , a source of com fort , by reminding them that we as well as they loved him , and that wo will cherish his memory as a sweet remembrance. Their remembrance of him as a loving husband , a kind and Indulgent parent and an affectionate brother will bo a lasting solace In the years to come. To his friends I need say nothing , for they know him as a man and neigh bor , n true and devoted friend. The members of the several orders to which ho belonged , will always bear him In mind as one of tholr efficient and zealous co-workers. Last night was the first tlmo since our ledge was organized that we have met with the office of tyler vacant , and just before the session com menced I was standing In the middle of the room talking to a traveling man , who Is a member of our order. Wo were talking about filling Brother Tapport's place. This traveling man Is well known by all of you , ho lives hero among us , and Is a man whom we have all learned to admire and re spect. While wo stood looking each other In the fact , I noticed tears glis tening in his eyes , and ho said to me : "Wo can't get anybody to fill Otto's place. Why , my dear Mr. Robertson you people don't know Otto as we traveling men know him. Wo know of his deeds of kindness , his generous impulses and uniform courtesy. I don't know nor care what other people may say about Otto Tapport , but 1 know ho was a prince among men ono of nature's noblemen. " It struck me as an eloquent testimonial from ono of his brethren. Although I have chosen to make this tribute brief , it is not that I did not love our brother , for I did , but It is rather that I would not harrow up the feelings of these who loved him in life , and mourn him in his death. And now. my friends and brothers of Norfolk lodge , number C53 , Benev olent and Protective Order of Elks , so far as this our brother Is concerned , "Tho parting has come , " and let us Indulge the hope that his spirit is now dwelling in the realms of the blest on the other side , and when wo are called to go up on high , wo shall clasp glad [ lands with our departed brother on that shining shore , Mr. Welds' Address. The following sermon delivered by Rov. J. C. S. Wellls at Trinity Eplsco- ml church yesterday morning , Is pub- Ished by request : St. Luke VI. , : iG-t7 : : Bo ye there fore merciful ; as your Father also la merciful. Judge not that ye bo not liidged. Condemn not and ye shall not be condemned ; forglvu nnd ye shall he forgiven. These are among the closing words of the Sermon on the Mount. They ire very full of practical religion. They net forth the spirit of the ro- talon taught by our Blessed Lord. In another part of Holy Scripture wo ire taught that the highest Christian virtue Is charity and that being desti tute of It the professing follower be comes as sounding brass and as a Inkling cymbal. The teaching Is that n proportion aa wo become Imbued with true piety , wo become broad , lib eral and charitable In our judgments ) f others. That wo become tender , ompaaslouate and merciful to the err- ng and the unfortunate , that wo com- nlserate with the erring and the fall en. The psalmist says of God that le Is good to all and that His tender norcles are over all Hla works. That le careth for all , that He scndoth rain upon the unjust and upon the uat. uat.The The average cast of human nature s quite otherwise disposed. There Is nuch generous and kind feeling dls- ilayeil In men's treatment of each ither , hut there la an equal , If not a argor share of a contrary sort. It ins been said , and truthfully no doubt , hat "man's regard for man , apart from pelllsh Interests , Is not exces sively large. " Certain It Is that his generous sympathy and sworn friend ship are often found wanting when ested by conflicting Interests. Many warm friendships havct when thus ested , been found to grow cold. Aa we are to be merciful and com- msslonatc In our treatment so are we to be lenient and loving , that Is , 'nil of charity In our judgments. In- urles , censures and unkind words the Christian can forego , knowing that 'This Is thankworthy , if a man for conscience toward God endure grief , suffering wrongfully. " Charitable judgments , lenient treat- uent , free and full forgiveness are the ilalnly written requirements of a true Christianity. . Hard judgment , an eye for evil rath er than for good , a strained severity ire thorns that prick and hurt those who use them. They alienate the neart and mind from the tenderer phases of social life , beget a restless uneasiness which robs of true peace ind quietness of life. The happy heart Is the one that Is full of meekness and of gentleness , not given to criticism , or unpleasant comparisons , not ready to see a slight or formulate a motive for hypocrisy In speech or act. There la a dignity .ind a composure in an honest , frank , open , forbearing , forgiving spirit which sets at naught the assaults and wrongs that are put upon It. The world Is full of opportunity for the exercise of charity. There are fallen ones to bo lifted up , erring ones to bo recovered , injured ones to bo defended and all manner of wrongs to be righted. And all by those who have the power , and social standing and strength of character to bestow the needed support to these In trou ble. We are not to forgot either that wo ourselves are not already perfect when seeking opportunity to supply the deficiencies of others. The Savior reminds us that we may possibly over look greater faults in ourselves than we find In our neighbors. A spirit not given to magnifying defects , not censorious serious , not prying after the evil abounding In the walk of another is ono worthy of the highest commenda tion. True piety Is more concerned to bo right Itself than to seek to bring to light the fallings and faults of another. It is an easy thing to sit In judgment upon another much of the zeal expended in setting others aright might be expended with great propriety and profit upon those who manifest It. There Is a zeal which fattens on the flesh of its fellows , that loves to feed on others' fallings , ever on the lookout for other people's faults and wrongdoing and blunders , and never slow to spread and magnify them. They see the motes In the eyes of their fellow travelers , their own massive beams being held In shadow. All such zeal the Savior calls hypoc risy. True piety remembers Its own shortcomings and is not given to swift judgment. It is most concerned about Its own standing before God and it deals gently with the faults of by standers. It Is well also to remember that it Is not an evidence of virtue , holiness or salntllness for men to bo facile In discovering defects In others. A zeal for censure may exist without a zeal for tmth or right or God. It is best ordinarily that our criti cism of the shortcomings of others should bo kept nt homo and that our charity bo sent abroad. Most blessed are they of whom It can bo said , as It sometimes truthfully can bo , "They woro. never heard to speak an ill word of anyone. " All such have heard nnd kept many of the sayings of the Master - tor and are far on the way that ends In the kingdom of heaven they have moro than faith , moro than knowl edge. They have charity. When wo are minded to talk about the faults and wrong-doings of our neighbors and are tempted to pass judgment upon tholr errors , and mistakes , and sins , then ought wo to recall the gold en words of the Master spoken from the mount , "Judge not that ye bo not judged , condemn not and ye shall not bo condemned , " or these other words spoken later In His ministry , "Ho that Is without sin among you , let him cast a stone. " It IB to be regretted that the Phar isee still lives. The "I-am-hollor-than- thou" man is still abroad In the land. Forgetful Is he that God's love is not limited to the perfect , the holy and the good. Forgetful that the sin- flecked ono Is precious In His sight In God's Bight the difference between a saint and the greatest sinner can be but small. Surely his love and Ills mercy la bounded by no such limited variations. The God of the rose Is the God of the bramble as well. Ho gives bloom to the thorn tree. Ills temples In human hearts nro con structed upon former ruins. There is not a nolsomo marsh or stagnant pool on the face of the earth but that Hln sun shines on It. A bruised reed shall Ho not break. May the thought that God loves each of His children comfort and strength en us when we need comfort nnd sua- tnlnlng power.
