Rov. W. H. W. Reca preached at
Broadway Methodiht church yesterday
upon ' 'The Duty of the Hour , " from the
text : "Woo to him that buildeth n
town with blood and establisheth a city
by iniquity. " In opening ho referred
to tlie contest in the coining election
and the moral interests involved in the
supremacy of the two parties and their
candidates. Continuing ho said :
"I como to plead this morning for
your support of a great principle in har
mony witli God and man's highest good ;
u principle underlying nil human great-
iiu--i and inwrought into all character ;
u principle which if violated hero works
ruin to tlie body hero and to both body
and soul hereafter ; a principle which if
not obeyed threatens the body politic ,
and will sooner or later engulf the na
tion in n fearful ruin , yi . : that of so
briety and temperance. * '
Ho reviewed the contest by which
prohibition became the law of the state
and the elTcct being made to make it in
operative and rc-cr.tablisli the saloon by
legal processes. Hi1 did not believe th'o
people of the state were ready to "go
into parlner.ship with the saloon aris
tocracy and build their cities with
blood , etc. " "The duty of Christians , of
every denomination , in view of the pend
ing issues , whatever your politics may
bo , is , I take it , to vote as you pray. You
cannot vote for the saloon and at the
same time consistently pray 'Thy king
dom come , ' for the saloon is opposed to
Christ's kingdom. " The speaker dwelt
at length upon and eloquently described
the work of the saloon , and -tho incon
sistency in a Christian man voting for
its continuance. "A vote for the saloon
is a vote against the church , the home
and native land ; against the fair fame
of our state , its morals , its prosperity
and its perpetuity. . . . The saloon
provides nothing useful ; no garment to
wear ; no food to cat ; no employment of
industry ; no books ; no article for the
homo ; no pillow for the aching head ;
no joy for the breaking heart. . . .
Shall wo transmit to our children a her
itage of distilleries , breweries and sa
loons , with liquor interests dominating
in business , in politics , in the state and
nation ? I answer , throttle it on Tues
day next. Give it the death stab. Lot
its heart's blood out on the street , as its
allies did that of the lamented and
bravo George C. Haddock at Sioux Cityt
The Christians of Iowa are on their
knees to-day. Can they ask God's bless
ing on the liquor trulHcV Can they
pray that the saloon may bo restored to
town'/ Nay , verily , they cannot. "
The speaker hero referred to the
sltions of the two political parties upon
the question , and quoted from their
platforms. Ho then said : "I should not
think it would take aehristian very long
to decide which way to vote in the prcs'
once of these two declarations. Wha1
does that clause meann : 'Opposed to ill.
sumptuary legislation'/ ' " The speaker
defined the word sumptuary and wild
no one wished legislation that would re
strict one in his expenses for apparel ,
food , furniture and the like , us applied
to prohibition was a senseless bugbear.
Nobody proposes any such limitations
on citizens. One party asks us to sub
stitute a license law for our present lav
and places the maximum license lit $ -500
Summarized , the proposition stand :
thus : Money vs character , money vs
property , money vs happiness , vs homo ,
hope , heaven , vs the salvation of the
soul , vs principle ; or thus , if you please :
The saloon vs a mother's prayers , vs a
mother's tears , a mother's hope ; the sa
loon vs the home , native land , against
God on the throne. What side will you
What a spectacle Council Bluffs pre
sents to-day. Law defied , men sworn
with the solemnity of an oath to guard
and uphold the sanctity of the law in
league with law-breakers. The open
saloon , in defiance of law , selling liq
uors in broad daylight and the otllcers
of the force powerless to prevent it. I
tell you what's the matter. The fathers
of Council Bluffs nro asleep ; eo are the
mothers. The rum power will bo out
en masse on Tuesday to intimidate and
buy men. Let every patriot , every
lover of his country , every person inter
ested in the name of our city and its fu
ture men and women bo out on Tues
day to aid and encourage men in their
struggle for a great and grand princi
ple , and may the Lord God thwart the
enemy of the homo and give victory to
the cause of the right , "

A flro alarm -wa3 turned in from the
transfer about 2 o'clock yesterday morn
ing. The department hastened to the
scene and found the center of the Union [
Pacific repair building in llnmes. The
railroad omployps had their hose laid
Bnd vrntcr on as the firemen took their
places and soon had the fire under con
trol without laying any of the city hose.
The fire originated in n box of oily
waste that is usually emptied every
night , but was overlooked Saturday
evening. The cause was undoubtedly
spontaneous combustion , as the benzine
and oil render it very combustible. The
lire was confined to the lamp room ,
where it started , BO the loss from that
MHlree was not extensive. Considera
ble damage was done by water ,
but the main loss was caused
by the heavy black smoke
from the burning oil and waste.
Every room in the building was com
pletely filled with it. and everything
was covered by it with a thick black
coat. One end of the building wa used
as a store room for Pullman sleeping car
furnishings , and over 8,000 pieces of
linen and GOO bed blankets received the
same inky coating. The total loss is
variously estimated at from $2,000 to
5.000 , but cannot bo exactly told , until
it is known whether or not the stains of
the smoke can bo removed from the
textile fabrics. A black stripe across
them would ruin them for their present
use , and aa the blankets cost $6.00 apiece
the loss on them alone would bo consid
erable. The company's lire equipment
prevented n much greater loss as the
situation is so remote from the center
of the city that considerable valuable
time must necessarily bo consumed by
the city department in getting there.

Don't "Want Itrlck Paving-
A short time ago the city council
granted \Vickham Bros , leave to put in
brick paving in front of their property
on Fourth street. The property owners
on the other side of the street imme
diately raised objections to it on the
ground that the brick paving would
soon bo full of holes and the travel
would all be on their side of the treet ,
thus wearing out their block paving
much faster and aiiojccting thorn to
extra expense. The dispute culminated
Saturday afternoon by un injunction
being obtained against them by John
Limit , temporarily forbidding the use
of the bricks.
Wickham Bros and the brickmakcrs
are very anxious for the bricks to bo
laid and the majority of the citizens
want to see n fair test of it. The use of
brick as a paving material would result
in the keeping at home of a great deal
of money that now goes to outsiders , as
the main expense of the work now
being done in thin line is for the ma
terial shipped in here from other sec
tions of the country. Much interest is
manifested as to the liiuil adjustment of

1'nviiiK on Sunday.
It was a surprise to many yesterday to
see a largo force of men at
work laying the block pavement
on Fifth avenue between Fourth and
Main streets. There was an oven larger
crowd of lookers on than of workmen.
It is well known that Council Bluffs is
pushing improvements this season , but
It has generally been thought that
the rush was not so great but that all
the needful progress could be made by
working six days a week. The revela
tion that it was necessary for public
work to go on Sundays also was indeed
a surprise. The men said the purpose
was to get the job done by night.
Further than that there seemed no rea
son for the special haste. The incident
will form a tnemo for the pulpits , and
these batteries will doubtless be aimed
at the offenders at no late date.
THE OlllENTAIiIX NEW YG11K.
The Life of n Chinese AVoinsii of the
Nellie Ely , who recently feigned in
sanity so successfully in the metropolis
writes : So far as known there are
only fourteen Chinese women in Now
York city. Of course these nine are
married , ono is a widow , one an un
married girl , ono a nurse and two
anonyma. Although residents of the
United States , they obey to the very let
ter the strange system of law and cus
tom which obtains in the flowery king
dom , n system which strangly resembles
the treatment of the qnoon bee in an
apiary by her drones and workers. Five
of those little women celebrated
their marriage vows in China ,
two in San Francisco and two in Now
York. The moment she marries , the
mongolian damsel becomes the property
of her husband n little more so than
they do in America. Her spouse has
the i privilege , as all husbands the world I
over , to chide , scold and chastise her
for her faults , and they assort that in
cases of grave crime ho has the right to
kill her. In his punishment ho may
put her on what wo would call bread I
and water diet , keep her locked up in a
bed-room , closet or cellar , or beat her
with his hand or n bamboo rod. In this
respect the Chinese law is almost a fac
simile of the common law which pre
vailed In England and this country
until about 1803 , and which allowed the
husband to "correct" his wife "tho open
hand or a light rod , " but not with "tho
clenched fist nor n club. " Under this
custom the average almond-eyed woman
expects to be beaten with a regularity
proportional to her queued lord H affec
tion , and , like the wives of English
"nuvvics , " regards the omission of
corporal punishment as a sure evidence
I of the loss of his love.
I In New York the Chlnc&e famllv lives
in the same flat or building ai thalir
which the pator ftimilla.s does bushies1" .
To the wife is allofori ono , two or three
rooms uceording to lib wealth. From
these she pratieally noor stirs , lilt hoi *
her husband or servant does all the
marketing and shopping. Still \u > r o ,
she must not receive calls from the
other sex o.xceptiiig in rare eases when
the husband proents1 an intimate
friend. On such an occasion tlio visitor
bows repeatedly , shnkes Ills own hand
vigorously for a minute or two , titters
the usual utereotyped remarks about
the health of herself , family , cousin
and friends , aud departs without having
oneo looked at her nice.
Where is the American who would do
that ? She goes to no place of amuse
ment and never walks upon the street.
She reads but little , and that love
stories , love poems and religious books.

A dinner with MoKco , u leading im
porter and baker at No. 8 Mott street .or
with Fuong Hong Long , at No. fi , is an
event which wilfrbcar comparison with
a banquet at Dolmonleo's or tno HotT-
inun house. The wife will take a doz

Most of her culinary genius is expended
onstowband made dishes. JTero Mio
uses every article known the Pnri-iau
chef and President Blackford of the
Ich theophagous club and a host of
food substances , spices and eodi-
mcnts for which there are no
names in any city of tlio European
languages. Her skill in weaving and
embroidering silk is equally great.
With a needle no finer than which her
Occidental sister uses she will construct
a dragon an inch long and a half inch
high , of which not only the teeth , o\es
and claws are perfect , but oven the
pupil , iris and cornea , , and the diller-
enco between the inciborsand canines
are clearly and natunilly defined. An
ulUir-clolh of dragons in the JOSH hou-o

are good illustrations of this marvellous
workmanship , aud probably could not

Lee Chick San Chong , a merchant at
20 Mott street , captured by my smiles ,
consented to introduce me to his wife
and her boudoir , , \\liich I supposed
would bo as interesting US the woman.
His store was in tlio" basement and bib
wife lived on the Ihvt Moor above. I fol
lowed my guide through a dirt v , nncar
peted hall to a door at the fnrtiio.it end.
lie rapped rather vigorously with his
UnueKles on tlie portal , which had
no outside knob or latch. After
a while it was unlocked on tbe
inside , ho pu-hed it open
and wo stood , on the in
side. Almost in tho. rear of flu :
room , with some sowing in her hand ,
blood the woman 1 had come to sue. She
smiled at her husband and looked at
me without fear or * urprise. but as u
babe looks at u now object hold before
iN eyes. Lee Chick San Chong hpoKo
to me in his peculiar language and then
turning to mo wiid : "My wife. " An
other moment and the little brown lin
gers covered with rings were Hasped in
my gloved hand and we were looking at
each other as only two women can.
What she saw is left to the imagination ,
but this is what 1 gazed upon with in
A little woman , not more than five
feet high , with the blackest of eyes ,
which were larger and more open than
the average Chinaman. She had the
typical Mongolian face with a comnlox-
tiou that , from the exclusion of sunlight ,
resembled bleached golden wax. Her
blue black hair was combed back with
out a part , dressed over the ears liljo an
oyster shell and down the back
of the head in u long oblong puff
Gold rings kept it all in place , but it
had the appearance of being souped to
make it smooth and stiff. The forehead
was extremely high and the eyebrows
had a habitually surprised curve. The
cheeks were round , dotted with charm
ing dimples , the nose a little inclined
to flatness but withal piquante , the
teeth exquisitely white _ and beuuti fully
shaped , and the lips either artificially
dyed or naturally a rich carmine.
With the air and look of childish inno
cence , Mrs. Sang Chong was not bad to
"la yourwifo .satisfied ? " I asked Leo
Chick. ' 'No , she is not. She is per
fectly happy in her homo lifo , having
no other desire , but she is childless , the
greatest affliction that can befall a
Chinese wifo. Leo Chick is also very
much disbatlblled at the rate bib family
refuses to increase. After trying un
successfully to adopt borne American
child , ho has decided to take his wife
back to China , and leave her there. lie
will then procure himself another. Ho
has already one wife in China and two
children , but she refuses to come t <
America. Lee Chick wantb an Ameri
can for number three , and ho made tlio
writer u proposal. He was told thai
men outbido of Utah were allowed bul
ono wife , and that if they were found U :
have ono in Brooklyn and another in
Harlem they would got into serious
trouble. "Two wives in one room ii
China no trouble , " was his reply. This
is inconceivable , but it is true. Wit !
all their addition in wives , divorce mil
infidelity are very rare. The wife most
appreciated is she who finds use for the
most personal names. Wo drank a
social cup of tea from china cups about
twice the size of a thimble , and aftei
wishing ono another a "Kung He Fu
Toi , " the equivalent of "I wish yoi
great prosperity , " the interview wab
over. It would so cm that women novel
wear the breeches in the Celestial empire
piro , but when 1 asked Leo Chick , ho
sighed and wild that there wore just ah
many hen-pocked husbands in the
Orient "allee same Amelika. "
