The stone was raised by the attending
workmen and as it ascended the bund played
an impressive air.
The foreman then spread red nnd whlto

At the conclusion of the ceremony Rev. T.
S. Fltrgarald , S. J. . president of Crelghton
college , spoke as follows :
' The occasion on which wo nro assembled
scarcely calls forany spoken tribute of praise.
The occasion itself Is lU own best eulogy.
The work in which wo nro engaged stands
not In need of the horowcd ctmrmof eloquence
( eveu had 1 It to offer ) cither to enlist your
sympathy or to awaken in you feelings of ap
preciation and support. This event , in which
wo are participating , speaks for Itself and un-
penl * In its own native worth , stronger than
utiy clo < j ucnce , to the purest and noblest Im
pulses of the human heart.
"lint though words of mine can add nothing
to the merit or excellence of the enterprise
which wo inaugurate today , they must not on
this account remain unspoken. The public
acknowledgment of a blosslnp is often neces
sary. On tbo present occasion it scorns n motl
nacrod duty , a compliance with which my own
heart urgei aud you 1-3,1 feel , exact.
"As a text for my remarks I can turn to
nothing more appropriate or suggestive than
the silent legend Inscribed on the cornerstone
which wo are placing today. It is the best
panegyric of tno spirit which you have como
forth lo honor : it is the truest eulogy of the
name which is adding ono more glory to your
fair city of Omaha. The corner stone of a
Crelghton Memorial and a St. Joseph's ' Hos
pital of the Franciscan Sisterhood could have
no more fitting epitaph than the Christly leg
end which Inspired It : 'Blessed are the mer
ciful for they shall obtain morcy.1 Thcso
words died away centuries ago on the blllsldo
of Palestine , but the spirit which prompted
them came to nbldo in the world and to live
among men In order to make the world bright
er and men better by lust such monuments
as Chreighton Charity and Franciscan
Sacrillco are rearing in our midst.
This Btono Indeed His legend fittingly con
secrates , whoso beatitude it is that Inspired
tbo charity of your saintly townswoman ,
Mr.-i. Emma Crcightou , and her generous
husband to create this memorial , und that
will prompt and sustain the sacrifice of the
daughters of St. Francis In carrying it to a
complete and crowning success.
"In your name , then , and iu tbo nntno of
every resident of Omaha , Irrespective of race
or class or creed , I bespeak grateful tribute
to the authors of the noble Institution , which
Is soon to grace our city. Hero class distinc
tions nnd race prejudices have no place , nnd
hero warring sects may rest in the truce of a
common blessing. Neither race nor class
can withhold their tribute no moro than they
can Ignore the ills to which humanity Is heir ,
nnd to the relief of which this structure Is
reared. No creed need scruple or hesitate to
offer Its meed of praise , for the corner-stone ,
which wo nro placing today , Is as broad ns
our common humanity nnd affords a platform
on which Jew and Gentile , saint unit sinner ,
tbcist and atheist alike , may stand. Hero
belief nnd unbelief may accent a common
religion und kneel iu the profession of a com
mon faith. In a ccrtuln sense , or in different
senses , wo nil profess a religion of humanity
aud espouse a creed , whoso evangel is hu
manity's weal. ,
"Tho building , whoso inception wo nro
commemorating , is this religious temple , and
the corner-stone wo uro laying this religion's
altar , where ull mnv come and offer the com
mon worship of gratitude and praise to these
whom Christ's beatitude inspired to bless
our community with this majestic monument
of their love of humanity and pity of human
J'Thorc are these , I am aware , who profess
a religion of humanity nnd who boost that its
shrine is the only ono at which they kneel ,
but who , by a strange Inconsistency , affect to
sneer at a worship whoso prerogative
It Is nnd whoso timo-nttestcd privilege it
has been to Inspire sous and daughters
to found just such temples of huuianiiy as
this Croigbtou memorial and Franciscan hos
To such religionists the temple which wo
nro erecting will always bo a silent rebuke.
It will , perhaps , suggest to them that If there
bo such a thing ns a true religion of human
ity. Ho must have been its founder whoso
beatitude of mercy Is inscribed on today's
corner stone nnd whoso spirit , in every land
nnd clime , in every ago from His to ours has
created refuges for every species of human
sulTorlntr. It will , probably , suggest to them
that if a true religion of humanity exists in
the world , none hold stronger presumptive
evidence of its possession than tbo noble and
generous souls , who , nt the instance of
Chiist's Beatitude , are leaving this splendid
heritage to the poor and unfortunate of our
common raco. That our race needs a religion
whoso profession creates institutions like
this , few , I think , will venture or care to
deny. The true religionists of humanity , cer
tainly , have many occasions for the exercise
nnd practice of their creed. In the llorco
struggle which men nro waging for existence
and in their still wilder rush for prominence
aud superiority , wo meet alasl with too
many Instances of what bus been aptly styled
"Man's inhumanity to man1"
The atrocities which the selfishness of our
nature cither perpetrates or permits uro often
fearful indeed nud almost sufficient at times
to make us aoubt if after nil. there bo any
such thing as innate nobility of the human
heart. In the race for wealth and position
are we not seemingly at the mercy of a ruth
less nnd relentless law , elsewhere known as
"Survival of the llttoat , " which like the
fabled cat of the Hindoos , crushes and man
gles thousands for the few it carries to tbo
poallTbo quality of mercy1 often
iudeail seems 'strained , ' nnd its quantity In
many places sadly stinted. When
wo witness the ever-recurring in
stances of man's Inhumanity to man ,
when we sco In bis pitiless quest of gain tbo
perpetration or almost every cruelty to his
fellow beings , the belief all but forces itself
upon ns that the religion of humanity has
long ilnco passed with the masses into the
idolatry of self. This Idolatry wo know
obtained the world over before Christ came
upon earth. It obtains today wherever
Christ Is ignored or rejected. It Is fated al
ways to lw the issue of every religion of hu
manity which Is neb founded on Christ and
Insplred by Christ's benutltudes.
Omaha , doubtless , mourns her share of this
wretched und cruel Idolatry. Ttmt this
blight , however , Is neither universal nor
widespread wo need no better assurance than
the happy event In which we nro participat
ing. Wo are bora today at the instance not
of an Idolatry which Immolates fellow beings
to the idols of wealth and pleisure : , but of o
religion tlio true religion of humanity
which prompts the sacriilco of fortune and
InsDlrca the immolation of self on the ultar
of Christ's beatitude , for thn weal nud wel
fare of Christ's suffering members. Hero In
this Creigbtou memorial und St , Joseph's
hospital , Christ's true religion of humanity
will jnako large atonements for tbo atrocities
of n pagan idolatry of self.
"I need not delay to speak a panegyric of
the lady and her husband whoso names
henceforth will be associated with this torn-
plo of Humanity. Better , fur bettor than in
words of mine will their eulogy bo told In the
silent tears of gratitude , in the holy prayers
of thankfulness and blessing which In after
yours the victims of sickness und disease will
offer hero to their memory. Why should I
linger to pay them the poor , passing tribute
of human praise , which t know they do not
covet when they possess in this memorial
the sweeter und thrice dearer assurance of
His blessing aud rccompcneo whoso

If I were to detain you longer it would ho
to speak nword personally to J'ou who are
- here , and through you , to every Christian
and every sincere friend of humanity In
Omaha. It would bo to venture the thought
that the glory of this institution ought not
to be loft to the Crelghtoiu alone , or to the
Franciscan Sisterhood alono. livery human-
Itv-lovlng resident of Oumtm this Institution
- has a right to claim us a iwtron uud a friond.
These walls are roared to shelter the victims
of misfortune , which recognizes no distinc

bcntitudo to the merciful unqualified or un

" \Vhllolt appeals for support It Is true , in n
special manner to the Catholics of Oinnhn , it
foregoes not its valid , and just claim on
Christians of other denominations who must
recognize In It the spirit of Christ whom they
profess to worship.
"It appeals also to tboso who know not , or
pretend to know not , God or Ills CbrUt ,
but who profess u religion that be

"In behalf , therefore , of our common hu
manity ; In behalf of tbo human suffering to
the relief of which this memorial is erected ;
In the name of tbo Christly spirit which
originated it , ana the dlvlno sncrlllco which'
will sustain and perfect It , I call on all lovers
and friends of humanity to give their aid to
the good cause. "
"Tlio burden of an institution which re
flects honor upon our city , ought not to bo
left unrelieved on the shoulders of a few
oven though they were willing to assume It.
No citizen of Omaha who is concerned for
his city's honor , who Is proud of his city's
growth , who is Jealous of his city's ' Christian
nnd huumiio repute , can refuse his substan
tial and practical support to an Institution by
which all these interests are subserved. "
Governor John M. Thayerbeingmtroduccd
with a few appropriate words spoke substan
tially as follows :
"Fellowcitizenslam : taken by surprise
In belt ? asked to say anything on this occa
sion and I only appear now to acknowledge
tbo most friendly call of the bishop. I WM
denied the pleasure of being hero at the com
mencement of your exercises , having on en
gagement at another plao to attend a meet
ing called for the purpose of making an ap
peal in behalf of the destitute people in the
western part of this state. After sneaking
there the mayor nnd myself hurried here to
show our appreciation of this most interest
ing occasion and to show by our presence
that wo feel a deep interest in the Institution

"I congratulate the city of Omaha upon the
erection of a building hero which will indeed
prove to bo a homo for the poor and unfor
tunate and ufillcted. I have iu in years past
learned and appreciated the benefits of St.
Joseph's hospital. I have felt that wo nil b ad
reason to thank God that ho put It into the
hearts of these good women and others in
charge for establishing and building up that
great institution.
"It required a now odlflco and through the
mumflccnco of tbo noble Crelgbton family
this institution has been inngurated : In the
future all who may be nfllicteu will find nn
asylum hero whotbor tkov are able to pay or
"I dcslro to publicly pay this tribute to the
noble women and men who have aided In
maintaining St. Joseph's ' hospital iu the past ,
nnd I bid them God speed. In their work of
humanity'and of mercy. Their ambition is a
noble ono to lessen thosufferingand increase
the happiness of their fellow-beings , doing
what our Savior commanded his followers
to do.
"I wns not at all prepared to address you ,
but in the interests of humanity I was willIng -

A David City Man Makes
Regarding English Manufacturers.
DAVID Cur , Neb. , Kov. 23. To the Editor
of THE BCE : Recent cablegrams from Eng
land , announcing that representatives from
the leading slhc plush linn of Lister & Co. ,
Bradford , had sailed for New York with the
ibjcct in view to look up a site for building
mills to manufacture their line of goods in
the United States , recalls to my mind a visit
f a few weeks to Bradford during July last
md the conversations I had with' leading
manufacturers In that vicinity.
Leeds , Bradford , Halifax , Manchester and
ShcRlcld are located in the very center of the
district of manufactories in England , and al
most connected with smaller manufacturing
owns and settlements. It wns quite in
keeping with the vast industrial interests of
this district that the McKluloy bill should
produce a stuto of feverish excitement nnd
great anxiety , because the main markets for
their manufactured products are iu the
United States.
It wns expected that these men should express -
press great hostility towards measures that
threatened to paralyze their business in
which their millions were invested , but on
quietly reasoning with these men I found
them to take a practical view of the matter
und talk very sensibly in a business way
after ventilating their free trade opiuions
quite freely nt first. The manufacturers differ -
for greatly from tbo notions Americans , generally -
orally form from tbo expressions of English
politicians nnd free trade agitators. An
English manufacturer is somewhat similar
to the typical westera man of America ;
creator of his own fortune and gen
erally springing from an humble
origin , but with industry , energy , push nnd
enterprise they have nil achieved remarkable
success and gained wealth. They are moro
practical in their ways of thinking than theo
retical , nnd would assimilate quito readily
with western Ideas and the progressive con
ditions. To solve the now problem confront
ing them in the McKlnloy bill many hnvo ar
rived at the sensible conclusion that the best
way out of tbo entire difficulty- to locate
their factories in the United States. I never
lost nn opportunity to direct their attention
to Omaha us a most suitable place to locate.
Doing near the center of the continent , with
railroad lines radiating to all parts of the
compass , and main through lines nt that , and
bidding fair to bo a great center of population
in the near future. All these matters they
took into serious consideration , but they are
similar to nil other men and will try to make
the most of their opportunities , and will be
pleased to consider Inducements offered by
the different localities. It will bo well for
Omaha business men and property owners to
bowldouwuko nnd secure some of the very
first to locate nt Omaha. The moral effect
of having tlio first factories located at Omaha
on the others remaining abroad will bo very
great nnd bear good fruit in drawing them
also to this eamo center when their time
comes to move. Hcprcscntativcs of Omaha
should bo placed at once in active communi
cation for these enterprises with the repre
sentatives of Lister & Co. , as well as other
leading firms throughout the manufacturing
districts. Tbo Munningham mills employ
about a thousand bands alone , and there are
many other establishments at and around
Bradford nearly as important.
My interest in Omaha's prosperity and
welfare nlono prompts mo to call attention to
these important matters. Any aid in my
power I can give will bo most cheerfully ren
dered. Wbatevoris done must boilono with
out delay in this direction.

When the monls of'saloamcn ore being dis
cussed , how frequently wo hear the criticism ,
'Gcorgo ' Is a peed salesman , but a miserable
collector. ' ' It is /act that tbo ninn who hns
the qualities to make friends of merchants
and sell them the Roods U seldom a passably
Rood collector. Tills is because , says th'o
Columbus Journal , it requires a complete
inctnmornhoso of the individual to emiblo him
to succeed In the two c.iiwcltlps. * Mnn has
two potent factors in his nicntul unatotnv.
The liret Is styled attractive force , which Is
not otily able to draw men to hltn , but to
hold them in sympathy with Ids will. This
Is not nn npRrosslvo quality , but yurcly gym.
pathetic. The other is known us the
repollaut force , which forbids familiarity
nnd frequently friendships. This last quality
is void of sympathy anil Is the forceful elo-
incut in a good collector : hut the exhibition
of It in attempting to Bell poods would be fatal
to the enterprise. Another reason why a
Rood salesman is a poor collector is that by
frequently associating with hU customers ho
is very opt to get to looking at matters from
tholr standpoint , and the oftcner bo sees bis
trade the less likely he Is to notice any stuns
of disintegration in or about the premises ,
which , to a loss frequent and unprejudiced
observer , would bo apparent the moment ho
entered the door. Perhaps the stock has
been running down , but It has been so
gradual as to nave escaped the notice of the
semi-monthly visitor , yet to ouowho had not
seen tbo stock for perhaps six months it
would bo in such shape as at least to arouse a
spirit of inquiry , if not apprehension.
The financial man writes : "John
Thompson requests ma to hold our
draft for bill duo on the 10th , and
as this Is the third request of this nature
within the past six mouths , wo would ask
that you would look him up very carefully
when there next. " How natural It is for a
salesman to edge around John with , "How
are your collections nowadays , Johnl" mid
accept any explanation mauo as a good and
sufllcleut reason why the house should ex
tend his time and help John through the
tight places.
The small dealers may not bo aware of the
fact that the friend who stands between him
nnd the ragccd edge is almost invariably the
salesman. The standing he has in the trade ,
the credit ho enjoys , nnd tbo favors ho re
ceives in the way of little extensions , en
abling him to do business on a limited
capital with comparative comfort , nro In
most cases the fruits of a personal appeal on
the part of the salesman made to his llrm in
bcnnlf of his customer. A small merchant
with a limited capital wants to bo the stead
fast friend of the salesman who visits him.
for if ho gets hard up that salesman will
stand between him and his firm , elton to his
own serious disadvantage. While the pros
pective loss stares him m the face , ho stands
as between the living and the dead : when
the prospective has crystallized into the
actual ho Is "between the devil and the deep
blue sea. "
The UoiiHO Pays Tor It.
Wo bad finished our lunch of eggs , biscuit ,
cold chicken and coffee at the lunch stand ,
says a writer in an eastern paper , and asked
the man across the counter how much wo
owed the establishment , nnd ho answered by
asking a question himself , and that was ,
"Arc you a railroad man ? " Of coursawo
said no , when ho meekly replied , " 75 cents. "
Now , suppose wo wore railroad men , how
much would this same food have cost us )
After glancing over the empty plates ho re
plied 40 cents. Tbo same day wo wore In a
barber shop getting shaved und were handed
a 15-ccut check , when a man living in the
same city nnd shavcd'ht the. same chair onlj'
paid 10 cents. It was the writer's privilege
to overbear a conversation between two
liverymen who had been consulted by a
traveling man that day about taking him
eight miles , when ouo said , "Charge him
Sl.50 , for ho's a traveling man and his
house pays for It. " The man who wanted to
make the drive % vas posted nnd another more
enterprising nnd less mercenary innn took
him for ? , ' . Now in this-connection wo want
to ask why nro the traveling men discrimin
ated against nt every point } Why do hotels
charge him from 20 to 60 per cent more than
they do other people who eat as much"or
more } Have the hotels , bus men , restaurant
men , livery men , barbers and the public gen
erally combined to rob the traveling sales
men nnd charge them moro for the same ac
commodations than they do others and then
ease their consciences , if they have any , with
the statement that his house Is rich nnd pays
the bills ) If so , it Is unfair , mean and unjust ,
and deserves the condemnation of all fair-
minded people.
If those same pirates who stand with
ono hand oa the traveling man's throat
and the other In his pocket , would only stop
lo think and bo fair , they would sea that in
stead of taking It from his "rich house" they
are taking It from the poor salesman , they
might bo mnro lenient , wo say they might bo
moro leniout. Every salcsmanno matterwhnt
his Hue , has his salary based on the goods ho
sells and the cost it is to sell them. Tobacco
manufacturers count cost per pound , soap
men cost per box , iron men cost per ton ,
starch men cost per pound , and many others
on the net proiit of the salesman's labors. If ,
for instance , a salesman had passes over
every railway , for board at every hotel , and
luul no expense account at all ho would bo a
desirable man for any house , and they would
pay him a larger salary than otherwise , because -
cause ho would cost them nothing
to travel. So , on the same principle ,
his house figures expenses salary nnd
net proiit , and if his profits ere light
at the end of the year ho gets no increase of
salary , If indeed ho retains his position.And
you wuo have charged him in excess of others
on the supposition ttiat his house pays for it
are the cause of his discharge. As a class
wo nro willing to pay for what wo tret , but
want what wo pay for. Wp wan t no farmer's
rates at hotels , no theatrical rates on bag
gage , no passes on railways , but wo want
just the same as others pay for like accommo
dation , and it's only fair wo should have it.
Every man has his hand In the traveling
man's pocket and ho pets no favors or special
rates from anybody. Ills customer expects a
dinner , theatre or good cigar , "because the
liouso pays for it ; " the waiter on extra
quarter , "because the house pays for it ; " and
to go along pleasantly with his friends nnd
tnulo there nro a hundred llttlo expenses in
curred , and the house don't and won't pay for
it. Woean'tcutdown expenses if trade is dull ,
ns railways , hotels nnd our houses do , for on
wo must go , huntingbegging , scheming for
business , and at the p -'round-up" ' our
employers tell us our expenses aru too great
for the condition of trade and are laid oft to
further retrench their.pxponses.
\Vo inako the statement hero , and wo can
almost substantiate it by dozens of men , that
there Is not ono man initltty who docs not use
a part of his salary fou-oxpenscs of his house :
nnd this is partly atleast , duo to the laol
that , as wo before staled , every man wants a
whack nt the money ho thinks belongs to the
house , when It really , Belongs to the sales-
man. Place us on an equal footing witli
other of your patrons -and share us the chlllj %
cheerless look of our employers at the cud o

How to be a Happy Wife.
"How many a young wife , if she spoke the absolute truth , would say : ' While I love my
husband , my marriage is a great mistake , for I am brought in close contact with people with
whom I have no thought in common , and who make me wretchedly unhappy. ' A homely
old proverb says : 'For the want of company , welcome trumpery. ' The girl who accepts Ned
because no one else has asked her , and she docs not want to bu the only old maid in her set ,
turns hex marriage into a make
shift. She is conscious at times
that-she deserves a better fate ,
but her friends have teased her ,
about him , and almost before
she knows it she is his , by the
appropriation of public opinion , " .

"When I first began on the road I used to
carry the stones In a chamois bolt lined with
sills around my waist next to the slcln. This
was not only uncomfortable , but troublesome
to got nt when I arrived at n hotel und wished
to deposit the stones In a safe. Now iry
tnllor always Hues iny vests after a peculiar
fashion of. his own , " continued ho , opening
his vest and showing four larpo pockets at
tached to the lining of the front of the vest.
"You see the lining is of very strong material
nnd sowed to the first lining of the vest with
the best of thread. The four pockets are
simply the two usual pockets with double
scam in the middle dividing them. Of course
they nro made somewhat larger so that the |
poclcotbooks holding the diamonds will ex
actly fit them. The pocketboolcs are hooked
with a spring to n closely-woven , fitiely-totn-
pored stool chain that Is attached to a light
but strong belt around the waist. Even if a
pickpocket succeeded in getting hold of ono
of the books be could not go ofl with it on ac
count of the cbaln. Some mt > u have pockets
put In the lusldo of the front waistband of
their trousers , but I prefer these in my vest
Tlio whole secret Is to get the books ns near
the person ns possible , so you can feel thorn
all the tlmo.
"Now for the pocketbooks that hold the
papers of diamonds. Hero Is ono. You sco
It is two pieces of close grained , rntbor stiff
leather , Joined by a more pliable piece of
leather , so ns to admit of doubling one over
the other. These two thlu strips ot steel
across the back , nsvo will call
them , nro finished 'In the front of the hook
with two holes to admit of the hook on the
steel chain catching through them nnd so
holding them strong nnd safe. The inside is
of Uusslan leather , twice as long ns the back
of the book , so ns to double over tbo papers
of diamonds. Each side of the pocketbook
will usually hold four papers , but 1 have mine
made so that they will hold slx.ns I frequent

"Now , last but not least , " said the sales
man , opening ono of the pawn of diamonds

then lifting the last fold off of the third fold ,
on which rested the ilinraonus , in much the
sumo way us n druggist folds papers for pro

paper is , as you BOO , of the very boat quality
of linen paper , but not too stiff , nnd an eighth

"Tlio regulation sbo for the outside sheet Is
