A Preacher fit' That Fnltli
Ammitf the many churches in Omaha there
Is none whord the doctrines of Univcrsnllsm
are taught or where the members of that
persuasion may worship , but yesterday the
first stops were taken towards orfianl7lng
one. The Hov. Dr. Shinn , who has been
visiting this city for the past few days , had
his attention called to the fact , and during n
hurried investigation received the signatures
of about two hundred persons as the nucleus
of n congregation. Ho leaves for Chicago
to-day , and will proceed to Cleveland , from
whence a district organizer will bc > sent to
complete the work he has inaugurated. Yes
terday ho preached both morning and after
noon nt lloyd's opera house , and for the af
ternoon text chose the words found In I Cor
inthians , lit ! ) - ! ( ) . "For wo know In part , and
we prophesy In part , but when that which is
perfect to cntnu , then that which is In part
shall be clone UAVH.V. "
Touching upon the very limited knowl
edge that man is possessed of in comparison
with what wo know to bo still unrcveal"d , he
said the universe we see suggests a greater
one Unit is hidden from sight. Science Is
doing much to enlarge the realm of knowl
edge. but some religious teachers have been
unfriendly to its revelations , fearing that the
foundations of their faith will be broken up.
In answer to them tieorge Kipley says : "A
host of minds , of profoundest thought , find
nothing in the disclosures of scion-jo to shake
their faith in the verities of reason and re
ligion. ' ' How welcome should these words
bo to every teacher who comes to make
clearer the footprints of the Almighty (
Such teachers have been sent , inspired of
IILMVCII , to interpret the meanings of lifo and
to foretell its purpose and end. Wo have two
classes of these interpreters and prophets.
The ono teaches by reason , the other by
faith. Thu one reports actual facts , gives
tlic results of all knowledge that has been
ntt.imcd , all that is mastered in the different
fields of nature , interprets not only the great
bible that is open to all , but thu bible
of human experience us well. Those
who teach by prophetic power are inspired
to look into thu future , and , reasoning from
the known to the unknown , point out things
that , will come to p.iss , things that will pro
mote the higher good of the race. Their
mission is to speak words of promise and
hope , arouse ambition , encourage every
toiler for truth , and it is through their
teachings that all great moral and spiritual
reforms are achieved , because they are men
of faith who have these visions of the future.
Many men speak and act as if we have per
fect knowledge , but nothing is so fatal to
progress IIB for one to think that lie knows
in full all thu truth. The words of thu text
say that wo only "know in part. " We do
not see from thu summit yet. The mountain
of truth towers far above us. and we only
see a small portion of the sunlit
summit where wo may yet have visions
of the perfect day. Some men
are narrow , one-hided and egotistic. Some
arc bigoted and conceited , bccausu ol partial
knowledge. Some think they know every
thing , but It is a fatal delusion that chills
progress mid palsies human effort. JCMIS
characterized such people us "Pharisees , "
and there are political as well as religious
Pharisees to-day. Mombersof some churches
refuse to hear the doctrines of another ,
think nil other churches are wrong , and all
doctrines except these held by them false.
Why I They refuse to investigate the beliefs
and principles held by others. Why ! Ho-
cnusc tliev think their church is the church ,
and that they have all the truth. They have
not. Kvery branch of the Christian church
is "chosen1 and no branch or sect should set
itself up as "tttu" church. All are doing
good in the world according to their faithful
ness to the truth they have. Sonic
people are afraid to investigate the
Universalist faith , afraid to attend its incut-
mg , afraid to rend its books or study its
doctrines. How blind for n man to refuse to
investigate the honest beliefs of his fellow
man , for the wisest know only in part.
What ho needs to Know is a gre.it deal he
docs not know. The deseiples of Christ were
in confusion respecting the kingdom their
master was to establish. They did not un
derstand its spiritual power or how it could
subdue all things and save all men. They
did not understand the character of God as
taught by Christ , and yet they knew vastly
more than the kings and rulers of remoter
years. The Jowisli religion was a great im
provement on that of thu heathen , but it con-
lined the mercy of God to its own people.
Peter typed the limitation of the present day
before ho got his vision from heaven , for
until then he restricted the benefits
of the gospel to his own people.
Hut this partmlism and exclusivencss is to bo
done away with and will melt away in the
dawning of the perfect knowledge. There
are many practical benefits derived from the
growth of knowledge , and wo have also a
larger freedom to think. Coleridge says ,
"For what is freedom but the unfettered use
of all the powers which God for use hath
given. " The mission of Christ is becoming
clear not to appease or placate deity , not to
change God , but to change men. Wo are
learning more as to the purpose of God ; wo
nro in his great school , and all his laws are to
perfect us. All the partial knowledge , the
prophecy , the promises will be supplemented
at last with the perfect knowledge and wo
shall rlso from lower to higher realms , while
the steps by which we have climea shall fall
and fade away. God is good , and under him
everything Is working towards fulfillment.
Ho will do for his children , the weak and
misguided as well as the strong and faithful ,
even better than the greatest optimist has
dared to hope.
In closing the speaker said , "I bolicvo
there will bo compensation for all the Irregu
larities of this life , " and then wound up his
discourse with un eloquent peroration.
Where there is nothing the king has
lost his right. When you have lost your

The Onialm I'lniit Likely to Uc Fur
The promoters of the natural gas project
in Omaha assert that they have in no way
abandoned the enterprise. A pipe iViU feet in
length , extending from the tank to the inter
section of Sixteenth and liurdctto streets ,
has been laid , ana the fluid burns brightly
after being convoyed that distance. A new
movement Is now on foot to further Investi
gate the supply by sinking a hole 2,000 feet
beneath the surface. Several parties in the
east hnvo been communicated with and the
lowest proposition for sinking the hole and
removing the core Is f 10,1100. This the stock
holders regard as being too great to warrant
the undertaking. Should they conclude ,
however , to do this they will receive support
from well known capitalists in this city , and
already the names of Joe Her , John Mi-
Shane , W. A , Paxton , John A. Crcighton
and several others have put down their
mimes for $ ' , ' 00 each in case such u project is
carried out. The object of removing the
core is to ascertain matters in connection
witn a coal bed. U is generally believed that
cither substance can bo found in this locality.

Two Women Who Were Drun U.
Stella Emerson and Mrs. Burgess were ar
rested on Cuinlng street last evening by
Officer Godolu , in an intoxicated condition ,
Mrs. Hurgess Is a well known confidence
woman , and when arrested was very much
under the influence of liquor. Last winter
she was arrested lor collecting funds for the
relief of the blizzard sufferers , which she ap
propriated and escaped from Jail. Two large
bottles of whisky were taken from the couple
which hod not been sampled. The Emerson
woman wept copiously in her cell. A mar
came to the station and gave his name as
llrowcr , claiming to bo the father of Stella.
He said that Ids wife bad been doing Ella
Hurgess1 washing , and that the liurgess
woman had enticed his daughter away. Ellr
Hurgess Is known to the police as a drunkard
and an altogether dissolute woman. Stella
Hrcwor hns had the reputation of being a
respectable and virtuous girl until she came
within the influence of the Hurgess woman. .
Brewer says he will push the cau against
Ella to .he limit.

FMJATS ON THU TIIIUTIUTII.
The Committee Tells the Merchants
Whnt It WnntH.
There has not as yet been much outward
work done toward making arrangements for
the trades' display on the occasion of the
opening of the Omaha and Council Uluffs
bridge , but privately a host of our mer
chants has been engaged In making designs
mid dressing floats for the great event.
Many of the latter will bo very elaborate , In
fact n great advance on those that were used
on "Drummers1 Day'1 of the late Omaha
fair. The same work is progressing In the
Illuffs and It is expected that these features
if the procession will be a couple of miles in
length. The danger Unit the procession mav
bo too unwlcldly Is now being apprehended ,
md lor the purpose of guarding against this
Lhc committee has addressed the following
letter to every wholesale merchant of the
OMUU , Oct. 20. Dear Sir : The commit

dedication to the public n Tuesday , October

imposed celebration and to nsk your aid in
Halting It an event which will bo remembered
'or a generation.
On account of the large number of appli
cations already in from Council Hluffs for
ilnccs in the line the committee finds it nec
essary to request that you will confine your
lisplay , if possible , to ono wagon. It is not
the length of the procession but the charac
ter of the display that is most attractive ;
md wo trust you will co-operate with the
committee to this end.
Fifteen thousand (15,000) ( ) lithographed invitations -
vitations have been sent out to merchants in
: he adjoining states , both east and west , and
the railroads are co-operating with the com
mittee by offering low rates , and advertising
To make this a grand success In every par
ticular It will bo necessary that every mer
chant In town make as good n display as
nosslble , and they are requested to send In
their applications for positions in the line by

What Citizens Think of Its Chances
"All this talk of having an open board of
trade is sheer nonsense , with our present
elevator facilities , " said a prominent mem
ber of the board the other day. "There tone
no basis upon which to operate , no grain to
deal with. In order to conduct such business
there must bo at least an apparent supply of
grain on hand. "
"Hut did not the board recognize this fact
at thu time it took action in the matter of
establishing the open board C was asked.
" \\ell.roallynofoniml action was over
taken. It seemed to be the dcsiro of a largo
majority of the members to establish
such a board , and , indeed , about fifty
of them put their names to a paper which
provided that steps should be taken toward
this end , but the chairman of the grain com
mittee , who was delegated to make certain
inquiries concerning grain receipts , etc. , has
never made the required report to the board. "
"Why doesn't ho do soi"
"Well , it is his aim to squelch the matter
utterly , and for obvious reasons. "
Said another "Of the
: course practicabil
ity of instituting the operations at an open
board , under present conditions , Is not to bethought
thought of , but thu beneficial results flowing
from such an institution , could it bo estab
lished , arc undoubted. A number of months
ago we had a scheme fairly on foot by which
wo would have obtained an elevator of al
most unlimited enpacitv , but the newspapers ,
with their wonted alacrity and one-sided-
ness , hastened to present the public
with the obverse of all the proba
ble results of such an enterprise
and actually scared out the projectors by
citing some exceptional instances where ele
vator owners had merely kept up the form
of receiving and sending out gram , in order
to cater to the business interests of certain
' I can't tell what the board of trade lias

member of that body. "They are a set of
old women up there anyway , fooling away

never accomplishing anything. Yes , I'm In
favor of the open board. It would enhance
business in many ways , but where is the

Isaac Johnson Killed Ily nit Engine
nn the MisNourl Pacific.
Yesterday afternoon about 1 o'clock , Tsaao
Johnson ( colored ) received fatal injuries by
being struck by a locomotive on the Missouri
Pacific track , at the intersection of Grace
street. Jonnson was walking along the
track , and the weather being inclement , ho
sheltered himself with an umbrella. At this
point , an engine that was running to the
round-houso came along at a rapid rate , In
the same direction that Johnson was
moving , and without any warning ho was
hurled from the track a considerable dis
tance and died from the effects a few mo
ments afterward. The coroner was notified
and the remains were taken to Drcxel &
Maul's undertaking establishment , where an
inquest was held. The testimony given went
to show that at the time Johnson was struck
the engine w.is being propelled at the rate of
about fifteen miles per hour , and
that no signal , cither by bell ,
whistle or otherwise , was being sounded.
It was further developed that the engine was

tee of what may be expected of us.
Our hat department on the second floor of the now addition will be in working
order Wednesday morning. This department occupies the entire second floor of the ex
tension , and contains more hats than halfado/.en exclusive hat stores together. Wo
shall place some special lots on sale and will offer Hats at prices which will stir up the
Hat trade lively.
Wo will make some heavy sacrifices this week in Boys' Suits and Overcoats to
close out some broken lots in order to make room for some large invoices purchased es
pecially for our next week's opening.
In underwear we offer this week some matchless bargains. Wo will place on
sale to-morrow the following special drives :
100 dozen elegant Scotch Mixed Shirts and Drawers at U5c each. The regular

plicated in any other house for less than S5c to $1.00.
75 dozen fine Natural Wool Shirts and Drawers , the shirts trimmed with satin
fronts , regular makoat G5o each. These goods would bo a great bargain at $1.00 a piece.
