The Eloquent Infidel Ingcrsoll's ' Talk
The Bolieiless Bob Tolls What Ho
Knows About "Orthodoxy , "
A L'asclnntlnR Fimltiulo Foment
Our Faith ,
The largest lecture audience over as
semblcd in the Boyd greeted the priuc
of orators nnd the master of Englishstylo
the lion. Robert G. Ingorsoll , last orcn
ing. The people assembled there were thi
leading minds ot the city nnd thonpplauao
returned to the orator's keen thrusts a
orthodoxy was lone nnd frequent.
At twenty minutes to nine the speaker
appeared upon the platform. Ho was
greeted by prolonged nnd continued clap
ping of hands , and without any formal
ntroduction began Ins lecture entitled
"Orthodoxy. "
Most people imagine that what they bo
iovo is going to last forever. They
.hink they have found the absolute truth.
This is n world of perpetual change ol
jirth nnd deaths of
Only n few years ngo the people bo-
iovcd in the supernatural. Only ashorl
inio ngo the astrologer existed , now in
iis place wo find the aatronomornnd the
world has lest nothing by the change.
There was n time when the prophol
could road the leaves of the future , in
IliaKtend [ wo now have the philosopher
who rends the things of the past , and the
world nas not lost by the exchange. The
preacher will sooner or later bo sup
ilantcd by the teacher and the world
will loose nothing by the exchange. This
a a world of change : the planets nre dy
ng , greater nations thnn ours have gone
down to decay. Even language dies. On
ono aide wo see the cradle of n word nnd
on the other its cemetery. Wo all re
member the dear old doctor , the bleeder
and blistoror , who took on the end of n
ancot his patient to the verge of oterni
y and then spent his time in bringing
lim back. There is only one thing thai
will keep the mind from thinking , and
: hnt is fear. Fear is
; ho bastilo of the soul. "I am , " snid
, ho speaker , "doinc' what I can to kill
the jVlor. " Religion dies hard , but that
s because intelligence is a creature ol
alow growth. Oiio great reason why
Protestantism does not die is because the
ircachera do not toll their doubts. " I
wish , " said the orator , " that ministers
would tell their doubts. I think doubt
s the bud of nn idea , nnd let it blossom
and it will fill your brain with the per
fume of sense. Doubts are the smartest
things about you. They nro the wincja
of the intellectual eagle ; lot her fly. "
Ministers are taught to sit under the tree
> f knowledge and pluck off every green
eaf to keep the tree dead ,
s dying of two things softening of the
irnin and ossification of the heart. They
) cgin to believe as as did of the dogma of
loll , which ho would fight as long as there
ras a flame , a coal and oven as long as
lie nahes were warm. This doctrine has
mriicd the world fora thousand years in-
.0 a very hell. No good man or woman
liould give a dollar toward teaching this
erriblo end. There is enough trouble
n this world without borrowing from an
ther. Ho had uovor talked
with a minister about his
eligion who wna not ashamed .
f it. A few years ago the Congregation-
lists conluded that their creed needed u
ovialon , and some old superannuated
musters , upon the backs of whose
dens moss had crown , and from whoso >
irains could bo blown the dust of the
liddlo nges , were appointed to do the
work. Mr. Ingorsoll here took up the
evised creed and analyzed some of its
alient points.
From the very nature of God It would
> o impossible to plensohim. He hoped
lero were a million of Gods for he al-
vays thought ono vrould bo BO lonesome
lone. Everyone who lias a God has
Jvery man who believes in n devil has n
nvil factory. Every man makes his
wn God or devil. There is only ono
eligion , nnd that is , to help humanity ,
lulp some one whom you can do good ,
Ho then road from the creed's doscrip-
un of God , being without body , parts
r passions which ho said was the best
ion picture of nothing ho over road. Ho
ind been told he must have faith. Hu
niiot believe ho could pnrform no mental
.rick , to make himself believe it would
> e so much easier to hnvo a fact first.
What is there to show that this earth
ms boon governed by an all iriso Godl
low do you account for the fact that
> abes were sold from their mother's
rins , that the industrious have not been
ownrded and vice travels bedizened
? ith jewels and crowns , that the bravest
icarts h vo languished in dungeons
hained to the floor with the iron eating
o the core ! They toll us wo should
THANK 001) . WHAT FOIl ?
Should the idiot thank him for being
n idiot , the lunatic for being n lunatic
r the deformed for his condition. Jt is
aid "how can God forgive man ? " but ho
would say "how can man forgive Godl1'
wish I could govern this country for
while , 'Iho first time n man struck her
whom he had sworn to cherish and pro-
ect there would bo u case of paralysis ;
ho firat man who sent the leaden bullet
.o its destination would bo another caso.
'ho present condition would last only
hreo weeks , just long enough for the
news to spread.
The idea of special providence is rapid *
y being done uw y with. "Just think , "
aid thn orator , "only last week the
fomig Men's Christian Association room
n Washington wore struck by lightning ,
while my oflioo is in the same block , "
Man is an imperfect being , There is
only ono right way and many wrong
ones. They say we are alienated from
God Every man who fills the out
stretched hind of honest want gives the
ie to that idea.
Every man that has done a good deed
s to the extent of his influence the sa
vior of this world. Ho hud
on another man's credit. Ho did not
wish to bo n winged pauper of the air.
All joy comes from the consciousness e

The speaker hero took up the subjoc
of miracles nnd discussed thoirnttributcs
"What is a miracle , " said the speaker
"it is something that never Impptnod
Fraud is always n silent partner of r
miracle. The now testament is ns mucl
worse thnn the old ns hell is worao thai
slavery. In the old , when n man WM
dead his troubles had ended , but in the
now they have just begun. "
Ho then analyzed the three miracles ,
the conception of Christ , his crucifixion ,
nnd the resurrection.
There in ono thing worse thnn to bo
eternally lost , and that is to be eternally
saved without a heart for thooo who
loved you. The boat men this nation
over hnd nro in hell. Franklin , Jolfor-
son nnd Payne nro thoro. The men who
loosened the shackles from 4uOO,000
nouls are wearing their 'chains in hell.
Diderot , who attempted to compile
knowledge so that the peasant could bo
on nn intellootunl level with the prince ,
has been in hell for more than 100 years
crying for water ]
n fiend nnd the nlnvo of God. He ob
jected to the bible because it denied
human love. If there is to bo n resur
rection , ntid ho could not see those who
had lovnd him here , ho would say
" Gabriel , lot mo nlono. " Ho would
rather be in hell with those ho loved than
in heaven without them.
"In conclusion , " said the speaker ,
" wo read that Orpheus went down into
hell nftcr Euridyco , where ho played so
beautifully with his harp that Sysephus
stopped rolling the stone , nnd Tantalus
ceased for the time to pursue the over-
fleeing waters. The gods had promised
him if ho could
to the sunlight without looking back , eho
should again bo his. After repeated
trials ho abandoned his efforts , nnd so
truth iacontinunly ) clipping away from
us , but sooner or later this fickle goddess
will bo brought to the sunlight , whore il
will remain forever.

Lnat night about 12:30 : the alumboraoE
Oouornl Lowe were disturbed by foot
falls in hii dining-room , and the Bound
of dishes dropping upon the floor. Ho
rose from his bed quietly , nnd , in
forming hia hired man that aomothing
waa wrong below , told him to stand by
; ho window of the dining-room on tha
outside. Mr. Lnwo then wont into the
apartment whcro the noiaca were hoard
with pistol iii hand. The room waa dark
nnd nobody wns coon. Thinking aorao-
ono might bo there ho commanded him
o hold up h'is hands nnd the reply came
rom n man in the darknosa hia
innda were nlrendy up. Mr. Lowe then
old him to open the window and got out.
So noon ns the burglar hnd put his head
hrough the window ho was seized by the
lired man aud'n doapcrato otrugglo on-
niod. The burghr wna finally secured
mud nnd foot by the two men. The cries
of the women who heard the encounter
were hoard by Policemen Bellamy nnd
iVhitmaok on the corner of Dodge and
Sixteenth nnd by Ofllcor Conuiolc in the
) olico atutiou , who ran to Mr. Lowo'a aa-
liatnnco nnd afterward brought the burg-
nr to the jail , where hu gave the name o
James Hng4u ,
The burghr ia ono of the tramp spo-
iioa , nnd when caught had on nothing
) ut shirt and breeches. Ilia face wns
) lccding considerably from cuts received
n the struggle. The jailor says hia f.ico-
a familiar and that ho has served a term
or vagrancy iu tliii county jail.
The burglar , to tflect an entrance , had
> rokon out a pane of glass , and unlocked
> ho door from the inside. After entering
10 raised a window aa n moans of exit iu
CIIBO of nn emergency , but wna tnken by
Rurpriao nnd could not mnko his cscapo.
When caught ho waa loading himself
