The Rollttlon of Count Tolstoi Dla- cuBBOd at St. Paul's. HOW THE PRESS HELf PASTORS. The World IN Growing Hotter The Clty'H Financial Policy Criticised Brief lilts of News and Personal Mention. What is ruble UcllRlon ? Last evening at St. Paul's Episcopal church Uio rector , T. J. .Mnckuy , de- livorctl the first of a scries of lectures \ im"Tho \ Coin tunnels of JCHUS Are They ObeyedV Why NotV" These lec tures uro bused upon Tolstoi's "My Pil grim , " and , judging from the ono hero given , will bo u practical exposition of the teachings of Christ. Ho opened with nn exhaustive review of the his tory of the church and its departures from the spirit of the commands of Christ. Ho demonstrated that religion SH not ereedism , nor a negative accept ance of scriptural doctrines. He referred to the attitude held by unbelievers toward the church and to their declara tions , bused upon the lives of professors of religion , that they are unworthy to boar the nnino "followers of Christ. " Ho referred to the prevailing religions of the world and bald : "Their teaching and doctrines are inspiring and grand. It is on the application of these teach ings to life that these religions fall short of the religion of Jesus. " The speaker continued : ' 'These pre cepts ( which form the groundwork of the religion of Christ ) the author of 'My Religion * condenses into live , viz. : ' T5e not angry. Do not commit adultery. Take no oaths. Resist not evil. Do not make war. ' His explanation of these principles is as follows : Jesus paid we are not to be angry and not to consider ourselves better than others. Tf wo were angry and otTond others so much the worse for us. Again Ho said wo were to avoid libertinism , and to that end choose one woman , to whom lie should remain faithful , and more , He said we should not bind our selves by promises or oaths to the ser vice of tho.se who may constrain us to commit acts of folly and wickedness. Then Ho said we were not to return evil for evil , lest the evil rebound upon ourselves with redoubled force ; finally , He said we were not to consider men as foreigners because they dwell in other countries and speak a language dilVer- ent from ours. The conclusion is , if we avoid doing any of these foolish thjngs wo shall bo happy. In brief declares that the sayings of Jesus ( sermon on the mount ) arc clear , precise and practical , and that Jesus could never have uttered them had He not thought they would , in some measure , bo lived up to. If these commandments ( wo call them precepts ) were intended , by Jesus , as a rule of Christian living wo must admit that the author's assertions are only too true. Christians do not regard these commands as having any weight in the conduct of the ordinary life of business or of society. From earliest childhood to old age they hear the beatitudes , the sermon on the mount and the golden rule read in the homo and in the church , enforced as they arc by the most solemn sanctities of relig ion , it rarely , or never , enters their minds that these precepts , which they arc taught to regard , as the highest , the purest expressions of their system of religion were intended as an actual rule of life and conduct. They are led by the associations ot thought and the teachings of their clergy to regard their commands as loftv principles of life to which all shouldnspiro , bill which human nature can never hope to attain. As Tolstoi declares " 'Christians decide n the first place that they arc imprao- icublo commands , and so high above lie best efforts of man that it is impos sible to follow them. " Even teachers of religion from their mlpits , and by means of learned com- nontaries assist in this work of destroy- ng the force of these special commands of their Master. * * * The sin of ingor ; the duty of self-denial ; the love of enemies ; the practice of the golden uleand dwelt upon und rules of life are aid down more suitable for a religious vindorgurten than for a body of adult loliovers in the religion of Jesus. When an earnest effort is made to cstab- ish the practical nature and the bulki ng force of the golden rule it is re garded as the ctTort of a fanatic and met vith the retort from Christians "to at- empt to follow such a command would csult in the destruction of all jusincss and chaos bo the re sult. " As Tolstoi says : l > Wo bp- iovo it all but only in the sense that it is the ideal toward which humanity night to move ; the ideal which is to bo ittaincd by prayer and by believing in .ho sacraments , in the redemption and in the resurrection of tiic dead. It is too true wo call ourselves Christians ; i. e. followers of Jesus , but wo take good care that our following of him shall not interfere with the duties of life us wo liavo made it , or with our following of the world with its varied interests. It is a fact that a man who tries seriously to carry into practice any of these com mands of Jesus would bo laughed at by not only his business associates , but by his fellow Christians. How true is the statement ' 'When wo ask a Cath olic or Protestant or Orthodox believer why ho leads an existence contrary to the doctrines of Jesus instead of udircct reply ho begins to speak of the melan choly state of scepticism , characteristic of this generation , but he will not tell you why ho does not act in conformity to the commands of the religion he pro fesses. The average man , when wo ask him why he continues to load a life thut ho condemns , without making any effort towards its amelioration , makes no di rect reply , but begins ut once to talk about tilings in genernl. If lie bo a member of the police , or a prosecuting attorney , lie asks , "What would become of the state if 1 were to cease to servo it ? " "What would become of com merce , " is his demand if ho be a mer chant. His response will always bo in this form , as if the duty of his life was not to geek the good con formable to his nature , but to serve commerce , the state of civilization. " # * * "Tho doclrlno they follow Is the doc- trlno of self Interest , " suybToltsoi. ' 'The distinctive trait of civilr/.ed man is to obey what the majority of men regard science. " "I as iniquitous , contrary to seek in vain , " he says , "in civilized so ciety as It exibts to-day for some clearly formulated moral basis of life. There is none. On the contrary , wo find the extraordinary conviction that theao uro superfluous. That religion is nothing more than a few words about God and n future Hfo , and a few cgromonlcs very useful for the hnlvatton of the souls of some , and good for nothing according to others , but that life happens of itself and has no need of any fundamental rule , and that wo huvo only to do what wo .are told to .do. The majority of civilized people have nothing to regulate fife but faith In the police. " * * * See Jesus ns he refuses to meet violence with violence and bows meekly to the unjust sentence of an unjustcourt and meets his cruel death as if the tit- ting end of such a life of self-dcnlnl ; no thoughtful man can sec and hear all this without the conviction creeping over him that If that earnest , graiui , devoted life was intended as u model for all life , Christians of to-dav have never realized that fact. * * * There are men who believe - liovo that the precepts of Christ are practical and can bo carried out if wo arc only in earnest.

At the C'ongregtttionul church yester day morning the pastor , , Rov. G. W. Crofts , preached an excellent sermon on the query , "Is the world growing bet ter':1' : ' He chose as his text a portion of the Lord's prayer. "Thy kingdom come , thy will 4 ° done in earth as it is in heaven. " The speaker took the optimistic view of the mutter , In answering the query. Ho believed the world was growing much better , despite the grcut evils , the presence of which could not bo denied. He quoted from some of those who took the opposite view , and declared that if ho held such gloomy views of this world ho would feel like asking God to let him die. Ho thought it was akin to infidelity. Christ hud taught his followers to pray tot the coming of his kingdom , for the tlmo when his will would bo done on earth as it is in heaven. It would bo usclc.ss to offer such a prayer if it could never bo an swered. It would bo answered , and if earth was over like heaven , it would certainly be a happy place in which to live. He believed that the world was getting better , and he cited numerous features of progress. Among these was the growing of religious liberty. There was also an advance in Christian unity. In speaking along this line of progress he paid a glowing tribute to the press for the part it was taking in making the world better. Ho thought the news- pupors were doing a grand work in en lightening the people. Ho had no sym pathy with those who , like Dr. Parker , denounced it as the ' 'Satanic Press. " He called attention to the one fact alone that every Monday morning , sermons , which had perhaps been delivered to small audiences. were taken up and carried to audiences of thousands. The pulpit was given by the press many times a larger hearing. and much mpro influence than they could otherwise got. The press also gave a great amount of religious infer mation. It showed ii ] ) wrong and worked for good in many ways. It was unjust , for the pulpit , especially , to in dulge in scathing , bitter denunciations of the press. The speaker , after reciting various causes for believing the world was growing better , spoke of the effect of such a belief on the life of a Christian. lie should have his faith in God's prom- "scs strengthened. He would bo able , o look fonyurd to a glorious future life , mt in leaving for a better world , would 'eel that he was leaving behind him a ivorld that was better than when he 011- .ered it. _ On the market for over twenty years. still the most reliable and the moil [ > opular sowing machine made.

In the course of his perambulations about toun the BEE man gets a very ; orrect idea of the public mind in re gard to the administration of the city's iffnirs , and the method pursued in con ducting the municipal business. Yes- ; erday u prominent citizen expressed nimsclf fts follows : "During the past week much complaint has been made concerning the policy now in vogue of turning over the city's bonds to the con tractors for work performed in public improvements. The ill effect s of such u. course tire very obvious. When placed in the hands of the contractor , who almost invariably has paid out largo sums of monoj for labor during the progress of the work , the bondb prove to be a load that must bo immediately turned into cash to ena ble him to meet his obligations at the banks , whore ho was compelled to got his money. For this reason he is com pelled to hawk about hero * and there paper that ought to bo at a premium. The very method in itself is suspicious and casts discredit on the city , while the bonds uro at a discount ami a drug in the market. Such is the case in Council Bluffs , and if this policy is pursued it will bo but a short time until it will bo impossible to find a responsi ble contractor who will undertake to do any work for the city. The reason is not because the city is poor , nor because it is too much in debt to readily redeem its paper , for the condition of its finances , as published in the BEI : a short time ago , prove exnclusivoly that the pres ent financial standing of Council Bluffs will compare favorably with any city of like si/.o and improvements in the coun try. The city warrants issued monthly uro sold at a heavy discount , and with no results save increasing discredit. Such a state of affairs is needless and unwarranted. In other pjuecs , whore the city negotiates its own paper , the result is much different. The city has better credit , and pays its contractors in ready cash. The adoption of such a policy in this city would meet with the hearty approval of its citizens and in crease its credit and standing to an in calculable degree.

Oncco-ltiiKslniiB Have a Holiday In Hun I'rniieUco. San Francisco Chronicle , January 14 : San Frnncisco saw another Now Year's celebration yesterday. Those who hon ored the occasion made little parade or display. Gathered together in their houses in different parts of the city , erin in their ono church on Powell street , near Montgomery avenue , they greeted the newcomer with praise and bestowed a blessing on parting. Through tears they B.IW the old year totter to his grave , the nil-receiving past ; with smiles nndcongrutulatfions fought quick favor with new-born time. Russians , Greeks , Slavonians ono pcoplo for a day around a common altar were the celebrants. They observed the occasion witli a rigor unknown to those who have diseased with Julian reckoning. The llrst hours of their now year were spent in prayer , and before the sun hud culled to labor on the Kith of the month the observers of Gregory's time , the Griuco-Russinns and Slavon- iuns were again in their cathe dral lifting their voices in songs of praise to the power that lius wntched over them in the past , and en treating a similar regard in the future. Their urehpriest and priests led in the services , not unlike those witnessed nt their cclebrution of Christmns. the only difference being that the exercises were morojn the nature of thanksgiving. But the sumo solemnitythe same imprcssivo- ncss of form and ceremony and rite , dis tinguished them und made them of inter esteven toone unversed in the lunguugc that chanted praise or supplication. The day was observed as a civic holi day , and the celebrants refrained from nil labor. The children wore kept from school , and , clad in gala-duy attire und with flowers or love-tokens in their hands , called on their companions and wished them a ' 'Happy New Year , " much us their Gregoriun'schoolmiites had done a couple of week's ago. Chil dren's pnrties were largely attended in many parts of the city , an the little folks , although hardly understanding how two New Year's days came so close together , were inelinded to make the most of the lust one and vote it the palm us having the greatest number of enjoyments to offer. The other chil dren told their brothers and sisters stories of the country they had left , and if politics , religion or hatred of barbaric outrages were alleged as causes that drove pupu from fatherland , wistful eyes would fill with tears , and little ' Ji'stH would clench revengefully and in impotent anger agiiinst ono who would raise an autocracy on the ruins of a na tion's rights. For a day the games of he old world were transferred to the lew , and the songs that were sung in ar-uwuy Russia yesterday had an echo u many homes'in cosmopolitan San 'ran cisco. So to the elders the day was ono of est , und may bo of resolve , a,1 though he munv broken promises with which the path of time bus been cumbered iiuce January l.may have pointed a Cbson to the later celebrants. The Mbit among many Russians of casting up accounts on New Year's day was ulhered to. and doubtless some mer chants decided to do business a little icurcr the cash drawer during the present ycur. The evening was spent n social enjoyments , and the theatres received a fair share of the patronage if those who made of the occasion a liolidny. The urehpricst und his associates in the cathedral , accompanied by others connected with the church , after ser vices visited the Rgssiun consul at his "ionic in Alumuda , where the afternoon ivasspent in the pleasures peculiar to : heir country. The weather proved tinder to the Gricco-Russians than to those who hud their New Year a fort- nightugo , und if the people of this city tuul known of the celebration going on iii their midst , they would doubtless iiuve participated in "it to the extent of making some good resolutions at least. There were lynched during the year 1887 in these United States no fewer than 1215 persons. Of the various states and territories Texas lends the list with fifteen lynchlngs , und Mississippi is on- Litled to second place with fourteen to her credit. All the victims were mule , eighty of tnem being negroes. SPECIALNOTICES. _ NOTICE. SPECIAL advertisements , sueh as T.ostFound , To Loan , For Sale.
