At the Exposition Dulldlnff.
Tlio announcement tlmt the llcv. Dr.
Smith , of llaltiniorc , Mil , , would preach
at the exposition building on Sunday
morning drew a largo crowd to tlmt
building. Dr. Smith is the minister upon
whom has boon conferred the honor
of moderator of the assem
bly. There wore upwards of
2,000 people assembled. After tlio
organ voluntary the quartette choir
Bang the anthnra , "Groat and Marvel
lous. " Dr. L. Merrill Miller , of Oirdons-
burg , N. Y. . invoked the blessing and
Ir. W. E. Moore , permanent secretary
of the assembly , roiul the bible lesson
Irom Dout. xxxiii and part of Hov. xxi.
Prayer followed by Dr. J. G. Monfort , of
Cincinnati , O. The congregation joined
the choir in singing "Guide Me , Oh
Thou Great Jehovah ; " and while a col
lection was being taken up the choir sang
the anthem , "Sing Hallelujah. "
Dr. Smith arose and gave as his text ,
Deut. xxxiiiilO/'Tho good will of Him that
dwelt in the bush. " Tlio speaker nar
rated the story of Moses' talk with God
appearing in the burning bush , tracing
to God all the blessings that the people
of the present ago enjoy , as did the people
ple of Israel enjoy. Tho'etoctor's similes
nnd figures of speech were beautiful and
his discourse sparkled with gems of
thought. Ho spoke of the wonders
of nature the electrical currents of the
ethereal sea the rainbow , the clouds ,
the panorama of the sky , as the unco-
less gifts of the Almighty ; of the uow
"tho baptism of the clonus ; " of the para
dox scon in tlio operation of nature the
parable of the dew and the dec ) ) ; of the
glorious gifts to man of the fruits of the
earth "the golden children of the
sun ; * ' of the influence of the
moon "tho precious things brought
fortli by the sun and nurtured by the
moon ; " of the countless stores of riches
In the earth the gold and silver and
Iron "tho continents of coal nnd the
oceans of oil1' the quarries of limestone
and marble "tho wealth of the lasting
lulls and the everlasting mountains" of
the earth and the fullness thereof the
"ever burning candles 01 the sky , "
and the unfailing supply of
earth's treasures ; the riches of the
sea and the treasures of the deep. The
consummation of all things was the
"good will of Him who dwelt in the
bush. " Love was moro thaa precious
stones. What were all things of the earth ,
earthy , compared to the good will of the
Father ? The presenceof God could
lonfy a bramble bush , could turn the
§ csolatlon of the desert or the sollludo
of a wilderness into the heritage of thn
saints. The love of God was the choicest
treasure of the human heart. Happiness
was a thing of the earth. Friends parsed
nway , hopes faded , plans failed. Uless-
cdncss was from above. The benediction
of Him above was the only lasting herit
age of the good. The blessings of the
lather seemed to rest on this land in its
growth , development and prosperity.
it appeared as if the Lord had kept
America hidden from the peoples of the
earth until lln should have raised up a
race to inhabit it. God's mercies to this
land of ours were beyond computation
in the dovevelopments of its resources ,
the discovering of now riches , the
strengthening of its powers. AY hat was
all this without the good will of "Him
who dwelt in the bush ? "
Southwest Presbyterian Chnrch.
Roy. Thomas C. Hall , formerly pastor
of this church and now of Chicago ,
preached last evening in the pulpit
which he had raised himself , taking his
text from Exodus xxx:15 : , "If Thy pres
ence go not up with us , carry us not up
When the church is flattered and pros
perous , when the world is inclined
to gently patronize her , wo must bu on
our guard. Church lifo must bo a lifo of
contest. Her very existence is a protest ,
and only in three ways may that protest
bo stilied. The world may put the foot
on the church's ncck.and the voice may bo
stilled in deaththo church may sleepand ,
sleeping , die ; or the world mity and must
perish m tlio contest with tin army led by
our triumphant Redeemer. This is the
only peace God can .sanction. The
Christian temple of Janus must never bo
closed. The weapons chacga from age
to age , but I thank God for every chal
lenge to the church , for God lias never
failed to raise a champion to war for
righteousness nnd truth. Wo go up to
the contest , pray to God wo go not alone.
Open violence , sin , drunkenness ,
gamblinc must bo fought , belt-interest ,
passion , lust are all on that side. 'Wo
cannot standalone. We cannot change
Bum's hearts. Have you a struggle ?
Struggle not alone. You cannot con
quer alone. If God go not with you ,
pray Ho carry you not up lionco.
I am never afraid of an open combat ,
I am , of a dying church. Do not believe
that the danger is without. It is within.

We uro all going up into the battle of
life. Do you go alone ? Are you facing
that battle of life without the cross ? Why
call it the battle of lifo ? It is the
battle of lifo , of death and of

children alone into that contest ? You
oannot go with them. The grave alone
makes that impossible , but oven hero

ono power can keep them. The memory of

find all that you need. In Him , you will

Dr. Marquis , the late moderator
preached at this church , whoso text was ;
"And when Jesus saw that ho answered
discretely , Ho said unto him : Thou art
not far from the kingdom of God' . '
Mark xii , 84.
Jesus was standing between two liros ,
The Pharisees were plying him will
questions on the ono baud , and the Sad <
ducces on the other. The first Ho s l
: v enccd by that remarkable utterance defining
fining Christian duty toward human EOV *
rV crnment : "Render to Ciusar the thing :
t i. that are Ca'sar's , and to God the thing :
I. t that are God's. " The latter Ho silencet
with an answer that exposed both theii
ignorance and their unbelief.
An interested listener to these discus
sions was a fair-minded unprojiulicci
Scribe , with a question of hU own whicl ;
led him to asK : "Which is the lirst com
uiandmout of all ? " The man though
that Jesus would probably niiswui
tbo question in snob a way a !
to prore lumsnlf a sectarian
lint the answer of Jesus showed such ar
insltiht Into the deeper spirits of the law
that the Scribe didn't hesitate for a mo
nicnt In giving his hcartv approval.
Like an honest man ho confessed the
truth and also that his intellect partly
understood the real bible religion. Jesus
at once recognized ono whoso mind was
enlightened and judgment convinced ,
while nothing was lacking but the sur
render of the licart , and said. "Thou are
not far from the kingdom of God. "
There arc some hi every generation
who live upon the bordor. incii who
have been educated in bible knowledge
and have learned to look deeper than the
mere outward routine of religious duty.
Men who extol the beauty of the bible ;
who confess its obligations ; who sin
cerely dcsiro to see true gospel obcdionco
m.i'lo ' practical in the lives of all. Of
such , it may bo said : "Thou are not far
from the kingdom of God. "
The character Is not imaginary. I
don't mean the man who constantly
measures the'short-comings of Christians ,
I am not speaking of the man or woman ,
who dreams over the Christian religion
as a Kind of moral Utopia beautiful to
think about , but never yet realized.
Hut I mean that man who has a sincere1
appreciation of the excellence of the
religion of the biblo. He has nodoubl of
its divine origin , llo admires its spirit.
Ha tries to rcgulato his lifo by its moral
precepts. He believes that a genuine pro
fession of Christianity must involve lov-
ingGod supremely and loving one's neigh
bor as himself. Hut ho knows that ho
doesn't love God supremely , and there
fore he won't make the profession. That
is the man who is treading the border
laud , neglecting to take the one stop iuto
the kingdom , ills knowledge is correct.
His conception is true. Let it become
Love cannot bn forced , it cannot bo
bought or sold. I might bo a poor pen
niless outcast , helpless , wretched , down
in the gutter and perishing in shame. If
the C/nr of all the Russias should then
say , "I command you to love mo , " I
could not do it. 'I ho heir of all the
Rothschilds might say , "All my wealth
will I give if you will but love me : " nnd 1
could not do it. But some good Samari
tan who would tuka my baud and call mo
brother , might bind mo to him with such
cords of love that I would die for him.
Aud should ho prove a prince , who de
scended to my level that ho might lift mo
up , no command would bo necessary. I
would bo the veriest ingruto if 1 did not
love him. Here , then , is the motive to
surrender. God commendeth his love
toward us in that while wo were yet sin
ners Christ died for us.
in all the Presbyterian pulpits of the
city yesterday strange speakers took the
place ot the regular pastors , aud in every
instance were listened to by largo and
First U. I * . Church.
A medium-sized audience was present
nt this church on Eighteenth street , of
which the Rev. E. li. Graham is pastor ,
during the morning services. The Rov.
Dr. R. 11. Richardson , of Trenton , N. J. ,
preached. He chose for his text Mathew
xxv : 29 : "For to everyone that hath
shall bo giyon , and ho shall have abund
The central idea of the speaker's re
marks was that use and exercise promote
prosperity , no mattcc. in what laudable
channel they wore. His sermon was re
plete with apt illustrations. Ho said that
the exorcise of the functions of the body
produced health and strength ;
the use of money produced wealth ;
the use of the mind produced
mental power and the exercises of God-
given graces produced mental strength.
The apt illustrations of Rov. Dr. Richard
son completely captivated his : mdiencc.
llo cannot be called an eloquent man ,
bftt is excelled by few ulpit speakers for
keen and pithy language. In the evening
Rev. A. Mitchell preached to a largo
audience at this church.
C'astollar Street Chnrch.
The Rov. H. D. Ganso , of Chicago , secretary -
rotary of the board of aid for colleges ,
occupied the pulpit in this church during
the morning services. He is one of the
most eloquent of all the Presbyterian
divines now visiting the city. In addi
tion to his regular sermon ho made a
short and exceedingly happy address to
the children. His text was from Matthew
xxv : 15. "Straightway took his journey
The speaker said that , after God had
imparted to men tlio talents they possess
Ho , in a manner , withdrew Himself
from thorn and gave them an oppor
tunity to work out thpir own career. Ho
did not withdraw His counsel nor His
spirit , but left them the bible and His
holy spirit to guide their weak natures
and protect thorn from temptation. The
reverend speaker showed that man would
in realiiy , bo a moro machine of God ,
stayed with him and governed him in
every way and meted out punishment on
the commission of crime , llo said there
were two kinds of employers in this
world , those who watched over their
clerks with suspicion and distrust and
who wore constantly treating them like
machines , so that they could not net or
think for themselves. The others are
the men who toll their employes just
what they want or expect of them , de
pending on their honesty and manhood
to carry out their plans. This was tbo
way God treated man. Man was left to act
in a manner according to his own free
will having , of course , to take the
consequences of his own evil acts. The
only proper course was loyalty to God.
This freedom gave an oppor
tunity for God to worR out
His plan of redemption. The
rovorcnd speaker indulged in several
strong illustrations from mechanical and
phjHical sources , and closed with words of
encouragement to those who are already
Christians to stand by the cross and
words of appeal to these not already in
the fold to como to Christ. Among these
present were the Rov. Mr. Rankin. of the
Presbyterian assembly , and wife , al
though the former took no part in the
services. Rov. I. N. Hays had been se
lected for the evening discourse , but the
Rov. Dr. Irvine , secretary of the board of
Missions , was substituted for him. , The
latter delivered an eloquent and instruct
ive sermon on "Homo Missions. "
First M. K. Chnrch ?
Rev. W. A. Barr , of Detroit , preached
at this church , taking his test from Hebrews -
brows xii : 9.
The faith of the gospel is a personal
faith , i. o. ; it is , at its heart , a transaction
between persons. It is exorcised by a
person and towards a person , distinct
ttnd definite. To lose sight of this idea is
always to weaken the gospel. Faith ,
whether considered as a belief in God's
fatherhood , a realisation of the invisible ,
confidence in God's care , etc. , finds its
meaning only in the personal Christ.
The Christian faith , considered as an
objective reality , has Christ for its beginning -
ginning and and , for its sum and sub-
Christ is faith's argument. Infidelity
may talk about the course of nature , the
impossibility of miracles ; may quibble
about the authorship of the sacred books
etc. , but above all this the voice of Jesti :
falls on the ear with the same peacofu
power , "Como unto Mo and I will give
you rest. " Christ is Himself the perfect ,
real miracle. The so-called order of na
ture has bcon violated since a perfect
man has lived on the earth. The moro
wo study this character , which is not ono
frva from sin , but from all traces of a
sinful consciousness or sense of mistake
aud failure , the more certain wo become
that His explanation' of it aU is the only
possible ono namely , that Ho came clown
Christ is faith's object Emerson corn
plains that historic Christianity "dwells
with noxious exaggeration aboutthe , per
on of Jesus.11 Yes , and just this explains
ts progress and power. Woo bo to the
church when she ceases to dwell on the
person of Jesus , for then she will bo
horn of her power.
Christ is the pledge of the final triumph
> f the faith. Our conviction does not lie
n the adaptation of this faith to human
iced , though wo deem that perfect , but
Christ has said it and tlmt is enough.
May wo stand with Him in Zlon ut last
and share in that blessed victory.

A large audience greeted the Rev. T.
' \ Cortelyou at the morning soryloo at
his church. Ho is from Montgomery ,
Jhlo , and quito an eloquent speaker.
The pastor , Rov. J. A. Henderson , was
n attendance. The reverend speaker
ook his text from Hebrews vii : 25.
' \Vhorcforo ho is able also to save to the
uttermost all thorn that como unto God ,
etc. " The main points of the sermon
wore the subject of salvation as a deliverance -
anco from condemnation , from the cor
ruption of sin , from physical death by
resurrection. "Salvation to the utter
most" signified salvation to all classes of
nen , to men of all ages , mon of all na-
ions and of all times. The speaker dwelt
mrlicularly on the manner in which porous
ous gained salvation by coining to God ,
vho was a living and not a dead Savior ,
ilon who saw the errors of their ways
ind came to Him never dio. Mr.
Cortelyou is a lino-appearing
; entloman and for twenty-live years has

The persons who worn in the residence
of J. Walker , No. 1111 Chicago street , at
5 o'clock yesterday afternoon wore
startled by a pistol shot. In his room ,
oil the ( Irst lloor of the house , sitting
n a chair and with his head against the
side of an open window , a .voting man
was found with a bullet hole in the very
center of his forehead , from which blood
was gushing and spurting upon the wood
work and running down to a gory pool
upon the floor. At his side , dropped
[ rom a nerveless hand , was a pistol of
thirty-eight calibre , ouo chamber empty
uid the barrel warm.
Dra. Simons , Brown and Webber were
called by the observers of the tragedy
and gnvo tlio wounded man such attori-
; ion as was possible. They did not probe
for the bullet , as it was conceded by all
to bo unnecessary. The shot was fatal ,
and whllo the victim might maintain ani
mation for two hours or twenty-four
hours , death was inevitable.
Henortorial inquiry , r short time alter
the shooting , developed the following in
formation : The young man was August
Young , twenty-three years old , a horse
collar maker , employed by the Omaha
Saddle company , a native of Louisville ,
Ivy. , and a resident of Omaha since Feb
ruary 1 , 1887. Ho had a love affair in St.
Joseph , from which city ho carao
hero. The name of tin young
woman was Mary VVingestcr. They
had been engaged to bo married.
When Young came hero it was with the
intention of earning money enough to
rent a house , buy furniture and pay the
expenses of a wedding. Ho worked
faithfully until three weeks ago. Just
before that ho told Mrs. Walker that ho
would soon got married , and asked her
If she would attend his wedding. About
this time , or on April 20 , ho received a
letter from Mary Wingester which was
substantially as follows , and introduced
"I bcliovo you , of course , when you
say you don't know any girl there to
speak to. I have gone to work and
haven't seen any , of , the folks for along
time. I don't want , to , cither , because
every time I go home they have so much
talk to ranke. 1 vVuut you to come back
hero. I am lonesome without you. You
ought to bo here now and see how all the
young folks are getting married. 1 send
you my best love. " ' '
Yet. after such a letter as that , which
one blind could scq .through , the man
who is lyjng stark nn < l still' in the collin
to-day with the brand of suicide upon his
brow permitted something to come be
tween him and ttiftt girl ; for , but a
few days later , ho was missed at the work
shop and was found to be drinking
heavily. Ho would i appear at his lodg
ing house very late at night or not at all.
\Vnen he did come-in it was to arise early
in the morning ant ! go out before any
one , except his room mate , saw him.
During- the first week of his spree
ho Trent to Mrs. Walker , apologized
for his conduct , and told'her that every
thing was off between him and his sweet
heart , that he would never marry her
now , and that ho had become diacouraged
and was drinking on that account. He
announced that no would sober up and
did so for a day ; and then he wont at it
During the past week he told his room
companion , Reginald Hurry , that hehad ;
bought a revolver and expected to meet
the brother ofahis intended , and if he did
see him hero in Omaha ho would kill
him , as he had separated them.
On Saturday night Young oamo in late.
Yesterday morning ho rose early but did
not , as usual , go out to drink. Ho re
mained about the house until noon and ,
with his companion , then went out
and drank several glasses of beer.
Ho did not drink heavily , however , and
at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon returned
to the house , speaking very pleasantly to
Mrs. Walker whom ho met in the hall.
The next that was known of him was
when he was found just after the shot
A largo crowd gathered nround the
house , 1411 Chicago street , last evening.
Among them were soveial Knights of
Labor , and when it was learned that the
dying man was a member of that order
they took an interest in his affairs , tele
graphing to his people in Louisville and
seeing that he received proper attend-
Young died at 0:30 : o'clock. Acting
Coroner Maul impanneled as jurymen J.
H. Standevcn , Moses Sturman , W. K.
Wittinghani , Albert K Church and C. W.
Baker. The witnesses were J. Walker ,
J. M. Baker , A. C. Cross , Theodore
Wagoner , Dr. H. K.Webber and Reginald
The testimony developed nothing of
material nature in addition to the in
formation presented above. A package
of letters was , however , taken possession
of by the coroner , which showed that the
girl 'in St.Joscph.because of whom Young
became despondent , was just like any
other girl who was in Jove , a little
jealous and inclined to chldo him with
being attentive to another girl. But the
fact that she had loft her homo and gone
to work and that sue wanted him to re
turn to St. Joseph , ought to have shown
him that all ho had to do was to write
her to como and she would have been in
Omaha on the firat .train. There were
letters , too , from "Annio , " a young
lady of St. Josephron Ronick street ,
between Fifth and ; Sixth streets , south
of the union dopotwho addressed him as
"dear Gns' ' and declared herself his
"until death , " and n'rom Miss Mary
Ooort , on Ohio strcot , between Ninth
and Tenth streets , Qmney , 111. , who had
indited him numerous and tender mis
sives. It is quite apparent that Augustus
was something of a.lady catcher , despite
the fact that he waSloolish enough to go
on a three weeks' high lonesome and end
it by taking the pistol route to the un
knowable and vaguely dreaded future.

"Dacota , " 'as ho registered atthePaxton ,
is the moat prominent. The commodore
has the privilege of spelling Dacota any
way he likes , as be } a one pf the
arriving pioneers into that great
wheat and corn growing timplrd
of agriculture fertility nnd wont from
north to south among the dangerous
snags of the Missouri river before a boat
load of provisions for the Black Hills
was ever landed at Pierre , and before Bis
marck was more than an Indian trading
point. Still the commodore looks young
and fat , and talks with as much lliicncy
as over. Ho said to a UKK reporter last
night tUat the objects Yankton had in
pushing this project were to got goods
from Omaha insteado ( Chicago ; and to
give southern Dakota a direct connection
with Galvcston nnd the gulf. Ho expa
tiated quite entertainingly upon the ad
vantages Omaha would receive by the
now artery , and owned up that Yankton
oxpccted a wagon brldgo to bo
built across the Missouri in connection
with the railroad structure , thereby giv
ing to Yankton a tributary local trade ,
which heretofore it could not reach.
It was stated by Major Hanson , of the
Yanktou delegation , that all the business
men they had seen yesterday wore favor
able to the protect and several had prom
ised to help It iinanclally.
Incidentally , Commodore Coulson
stated that boating was very active on
the lower Missouri , and all his steamers
are busily engaged. Ho regards boating
on the upper Missouri as ended.
The whole oulsido delegation will moot
with the board of trade to-morrow oven-

The patrol wagon was called to a build
ing in the middle of the Douglas street
jlocU between Twelfth and Thirteenth
streets last evening by a painter who
stated that Ids room mate intended to cut
liis throat with a razor. The supposedly
contemplative suicide was found sitting
at an open window complacently sucking
a cob pipe and was as much surprised as
a man could well bo at the ollicial visit
which was made him. The officers con
cluded that the man who said the other
one was crazy was crax.y himself and
threatened him with incarceration if he
played a like hick on them again.
Risks on the Road.
C. S. Higgins and his son had a nar
row escape from a serious accident yes
terday afternoon on Sherman avenue.
Just before reaching the pavement , as
the team were moving at a lively gait ,
the axle of one of the wheels broke.
Both were thrown out and the team ,
spirited bays , sprang away in fright.
Mr. Higgins was dragged some distance
holding to the roins. Ho succeeded in
stopping the horses but lost the skin from
one forearm and was somewhat bruised.
The boy was also hurt but not seriously.
There are many cheap cosmetics of

Mr. Evarts Got a Reply.
From the "Portfolio" of the American
Magazlno : A correspondent who has been
rending the anecdotes about senators In onr
last number was an eye witness to the fol
lowing occurrence :
At Now York City , in the fall of 180 , a
case was tried before Judge Sutherland , In
which the law firm o Evarts , Southmayd te
Cuoate appeared for the defense. Mr. Evarts
made tlio concluding argument , and the tame
of the eroat counselor secured for him a con-
slderaDle audience of lawyers trora nelch-
borlnx courts , In addition to many persons
who had more or less interest In the proceed-
Mr. Evarts had been spcakine for some
hours and was evidently Hearing his perora
tion , lie began to sum up his arguments
and asked impressively what answer could
be made to them. Aealn ho placed the
poInU In lucid army , and again asked a sim
ilar question. Tlion a third time ho restated
his case with vivid eloquence , and otice more
in louder tones , wound up with :
"What is their answer ? "
llo paused. You could have hoard a pin
drop. Suddenly the door of the court room
opened , and a peddler , sticking his head and
a feathur duster into the opomuf , cried out :
"Jlrooras ! "
In a moment the room was ringing with
uncontrollable- laughter , In which every
body Joined even the Judcoon the bench
and the orator himself. Mr. Evarts , Jtow-
erer kept on his feet , and was the Urst to re
cover composure. With his hand raised to
command attention , as the roar subsided , ho
said , solemnly : .
"That WM not , Indeed , tha raply which 1
expected , but yon may rest assured that
when you do set their answer you will Una
It equally frivolous ami Inconsistent. "
