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 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.

The World Grows Hotter.
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 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.

"scs strengthened. He would bo able

The City'H Financial Policy.
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. "

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

iii their midst , they would doubtless

making some good resolutions at least.
