The doctor explained the significance of
Memorial day , suyinp : "Wcro it not for the

Memorial day is unwarranted nnd ought not
to bo repeated. But 1 think wo would
do well to remember our civil war.
Vfo should remember Memorial day , the
temple and the house of Uod.
"That war was necessary. It wrought for
u n long peace , and If i > caco can only ba

and sound the war cry- The civil war was
in the interest of peace , but nt what an

"Man , when ho began , was but llttlo nbovo

the angels ; ho was not self controlling and
when ho saw anything that ho wanted , ho

Bolzod the weaker ono by the throat and

bo was stronger.

spirit of war. Had this continued there
would have been no ono on the narth today ,
because the strong would havn exterminated
the weak , and so It would have gone on until
tbo strong would have died off. But It was
not so Intended , for tbcro was someone there
to take off the strong before they could
destroy tbo weak.
"The strong arm of the parent will not

"WJth civilization came thinkers , and

Ho said the nations should have nn umpire ,

George Crook post , Grand Army of the
Kepubllc , anil George Crook cauip , Sons of
Veterans , attended dlvino service in a body
nt Sownrd street Methodist church yesterday
monimg. About twonty.flvo members of
each organization were present. The church
had boon appropriately decorated with large
flags suspended from the rafters and the
altar was prottlly draped with the stars and
Btrlpos and ( lowers.
Uov. H. A. Crnno preached the sermon , the
text cbosen bolnc Deuteronomy lv. , 33 : "Did
over people hear the volco of God speaking ,
out of the midst of tbo fire , as thou hast
board , and live ! "
The speaker began by quoting the words
of Maslllon nt tbo funeral of Prince do Condo :
' There Is none great but God. " Ho contin
ued by referring to the fact that
a notion once moro bowed in alnccro sorrow
over her great sepulchre. -
"With honest pride's worthy gratitude she t
rehearsed the horoio deeds of her long (1st ( of
great names , and her longer list of unknown
but not uuhonorcd sons. Tbo bravo men
who fought for their country's liberty must
close up ttclr serried ranks nnd draw closer
together today , binco you last called the roll ,
Sherman , with whom some of you inarched
to the sea , has led a great army of bluecoaU
down to the river whore strife , ceases and
earthly honors are naught. "
lioforrlng to the array of empty sleeves and
crippled forms before bun , the reverend
speaker asked : "What of the restl What
of your comrades wno fought by your sides 1"
The desolate homes , peopled by widows who
mount the long lost husbands and the orphans
'who cry for the ( ton tbnt will novcr return
were pictured , nnjl the speaker dwelt briefly
upon the awful carnage of war nod the death-
brooding prisons In n hlch thousands had
given up their lives.
Ho continued : "And then I turn ma to a
nation , the most prosperous under the tun
to nrlslntr generation , falling heir to an In-
bcrltanco of freedom , unencumbered by tbo
prlco of a ilngta slave1 , and exclaim. 'Did ever
people hcnr the volco of Uod speaking out of
tliu inldit of the flro. aa thou host heard and
live ! "
Aftar instancing tbo nny In which Uod
has spoken to nations , both ancient nnd
modern , lie said that God hud spoken to us
as pcuplo In a manner as peculiar as Ho
spake to the Jews.
"It was from the last fires of persecution ,
ni from n burning bush , that Ho called us
to a fair land where religion should flourish ,
xvhoro liberty should dwell In safety nnd
whore the great problem of republican gov
ernment uould bo cuternally solved. "

whcro God had spoken to this nation from
the fire , In the case of tbo revolutionary war ,
the savage warfare and later the war of the
Slavery had gone , ho said , but what of the
wrongs which remain I Of these ho instanced
Moruiouiim and the sooial agitations which
uro threatening iho land. Ho referred to the
sacrifice which the defenders of the country
had made , ana wnnieil tbo people th t If
they did not continue the institutions which
had been established through that sacrifice

potcd In them aud false to the memory of
In conclusion ho said : "Tho Union which

PROMISES OF GREAT PROSPERITY ,
Tlicino Which Moved HMiop AVnrrcn

mon The New Methodist
Bishop Warren of Denver preached at the
First Methodist church yesterday morning
o an audience that filled every seat in the
Bishop Newman , Dr. Tiffany of Minneap
olis , Uev. T. M. House , Kev. P. S. Merrill
and Kldcr Clcndcnnlng occupied scats on the
latform. Tbo discourse by Bishop Warren
ivns scholarly , earnest and eloquent. It was
nearly an bour ID length , but the largo and
cultured audlcnco listened attentively to the
i-cry last word with evident appreciation.
The learned speaker read a part of the
fifty-eighth chapter of Isaiah as an introduc
tion to the ccntril thought of the text which
ho found In the sixtieth chapter nnd seven-
eenth verso ot the same book. Tbo verso
read * as follows : "For brass I will bring
gold , and for Iron I will bring silver , and for
wooj , urn s , and for stones , irori. I will also
make thy officers peace und thlno exactors
The central thought was the promises of
God , and bow Ho repays these who seek
after His truth and righteousness.
God's promises of earthly happiness and
prosperity for these who servo Him are both
incomprehensible and incredible to us. Like
many things done by God they p.iss our com
prehension. It would appear that such lav
ish giving would bring bankruptcy to the
giver. But when you consider the millions
upon millions of tons of water which the sun
lifts I out of the ocean and carries over the
mountains , to bo poured out upon the fertile
jt fields , it Is easy tn understand that tbo boun
teous rains do not exhaust the source. The
ocean it not aUcctcd by tbo gift of rain to the
land. 1 The scriptural text is true. "With
holding 1 doth not enrich Thee , neither
doth giving impoverish Thee. "
God ( has and is always giving
the 1 best in exchange for the poorest.
1I God gave light where there was darkness.
Ho I created life whcro all wtu bleak and
cheerless. Ho made man with a mind to
understand"nnd i a heart to love His migbty
works. Ho has put within the linker's touch
of c man better things than man has ever yet
1i taken 1 Into bis possession. God always
wanted man to have dominion over nature.
There has been sUam in every drop of water
that over fell from hcnvon or leaped In the
cradle of the deep , and Goa wanted man to
know it and use it. Today steam docs twenty
times ns much work as all the people on
narth. Electricity has always been within
the reach of man. God rondcd the trees nnd
rocks , and spoke in the pealing
thunder with this mighty force , but man was
too dull and stupid to reach out hU hand nnd
lay hold of this wonderful force and convert
it to his uso. God has n better world than
this , to which Ho Is calling His children , but
how slow they are to prepare for that upper
and brighter world. Ho has a world where
the stieots are paved with gold , and the
glittering stones that wo pruo as being pre
cious hero ho uses there for exterior walls.
Man in bis present state is not fit
for such an nbode as that. Ho would bo
down on his knees digging at the gold pave-
mnnt. But God is calling Ills loved ones
thither , and by slow degrees the children of
men are learning the desire of the Almighty
Father. They are beginning to hear God
and to sco the blessings Ho Is placing in their
Man has a trading instinct. Boys swap
Knives and tops and when they become men
they exchange lots and lands and
certificates of value and of no
value with the Intention all the tlmo of get
ting something bettor. Sticky cluv is changed
into bricks with which houses and tomplcs of
glory are built. Useless ere Is dug from the
hills nnd mountains and converted into iron
nnd steel. The poorest is changed Into the
best by the gift of God reason and knowl
edge. Out of the Iron ere dug from the hills
iho steel wire is mad almost as flexible and
elnstlo as thought Itself , and Is
stretched around the world. Through
It the thoughts of men travel with tbo speed
of the lightning. We can not begin to see
or understand all of God's mighty works.
A gentleman once said to Mr. Turner , the
great landscape painter : "I cannot see such
colors in the sky ns you putupou canvas. "
"Don't wish could 1"
you you replied Mr.
Turner. "As for mo , I confess I cannot be
gin to put upon canvas a tenth part of the
glorious things that uod shows mo in the
Oed wants every man to have the best
within his reach. Ho wants man to bo
strong. Ho says , "Bo wise. " Ho puts the
blooming plant In the window and says , "Sco
my handiwork. " Some souls are dull nnd
stupid , and others are sensitive. The
spiritual life of some people U nothing but a
dull pain. They realize that they are netlike
like God , and that Is aboutall. . Some are
stupid In Intellect , some ate weak and
rheumatic of body and mind , whllo others
are strong and vivacious. In spltltualllfu
some men are like Peter , changeable.
At ono time the mild insinuation of
a servant set Peter to lying and
swearing. A few hours later he faced the
whole city of Jerusalem and told them they
wcro murderers. God wants to change every
man's life into something bettor. Ho no't
only blesses the prodigal when he returns ,
but Ho presses out to bless the more worthy
non-prodigal who bus never wandered nwav.
Ho says : "For brass I will give you gold. "
Ho docs not deal in legacies , but distributes
HU blessings where they may bo
acquired rather than merely accepted. God
has always wanted great men , but Ho has
taken time to develope them. The speaker
then showed how Abraham aud Moses and
tbo human side of Chnst Himself were de
veloped , and tried in the crucial test before
they wcro ready and nblo for the flual
triumph. Abraham was a liar at first ,
Moses was imperious and had to bo
sent to the country to keep
sheep , where ho learned meekness.
But God then gave gold for their brass.
Hod Abraham refused to give up his kin
dred and his inheritance , ns God commanded
him to do , bo would uever have boon heard
of by succeeding generations.
Cnrist surrendered iho hosannas anil
praises of the heavenly throne and became
poor. Ho suffered persecution and death.
but what glory. Is His today 1 Ho received
greater glory than Ho surrendered. And
lie left the way open to all mankind.
K wo could only see God's heights of
grcatnois that He wishes us to occupv wo
would step down from our little mole hills of
conspicuoiisncss and accept God's invitation
to walk In ways of truth and righteousness ,
The speaker closed by calling attention to
tbo benefits of a splendid church building in
educating public thought and teaching the
grandeur of nature and of God. The build
ing of beautiful temples of worship , the
siicakcr said , taught the people to devote
that which they thought valuable , their
means , to that which was higher and nobler
than the tbinir > aud thoughts of men. Such
efforts enlarged the hearts of men
and opened the windows of heaven
Those apparent sacrifices changed Httletas
Into greatness , and that which was low ant
transient Into that which was high and otor
Bishop Newman then presented the finan
cial problem again and said that there vc
remained J7.000 to bo raised. Ho proceedei
to take subscriptions , end in about three
quarters of uu hour $1,000 had been secured
Ho then announced that the dedicator ;
