Tbero was a. large congregation at Trinity
Methodist church yesterday morning to lis
ten to the new pastor , Itev. J" . H. Sander
son , D.D.who preached his first sermon to
lil Omaha , congregation. lr. ) SanOerson Is
a speaker of more than local repute , and ho
received a. warm greeting In his new field
of labor. He Is the eon of one of the most
dUtlnirulshed Canadian divines nnd has for
the past twelve years occupied some ol the
leading pulpits of Iowa. During that time
ho lias been In great demand as an orator on
national occasions , and has delivered numer
ous lectures before the Cliautauqua Institutes
and other educational societies ,
Desliles these , duties and his pastoral work ,
ho has teen for nine years secretary of the
Northwest Iowa conference , and -was also
president of the npworth League of Iowa
and chaplain of the Sixth regiment of Iowa
National guards. Previous to his entrance
to the pulpit ho was a. printer and editor
and brought to Ills pastoral work that keen
judgment of human nature which Is at once
the first and last lesson In the school of
practical Journalism ,
Mr. Sanderson's remarks Yesterday were
on "Unfurling Our Manners. " Hy way
o * Introduction , he directed attention to the
tact that a banner had a martial significance.
It was an Incentive to action , and this was
equally true of the banner of Christ. For
many years during the monkish ages every
thing was chaotic , with no premonition of the
coming dawn , but when the glad light of the
gofpel penetrated the gathering gloom of
BEOS the people turned to find rest and conli-
dcnco under the banner of the Saviour of
The cross of Christ was the banner of the
gospel , and In these days of varying creeds
and disputed theories It was the only signal
under which nil could meet on common
ground. Just as the little flags of Indi
vidual opinion were lifted above the great
banner of Chrtt and as ) churchlsm was ele
vated above the broad teachings of the gos
pel , EO was the Christian belittled and ren
dered an Ineffective soldier. All could not
bow to the dictates of bishop and conferences ,
but they could all agree under the banner
of Christ. As the white plume of Henry
of Navarre rallied his knights to victory
when the standards were down , so the sol
diers of the cross should rally around their
banner and follow It through evil and
through good report ,
Ono mission cf a flag was to reanimate
fading hopes and revive waning courage. A
thousand times on the Held of battle It had
Inspired to deeds of heroism , and there were
even now multitudes of people who would
die before they would sce > their nag dis
honored. Although this was not the heroic
age. the same fire still burned In human
hearts that animated tlio martyrs ot the
darker ages.
The banner of Christ was not for those who
Bought to shelter themselves behind Its silken
folds Instead of going forward to battle. It
Was to lead soldiers to victory and not to
shelter poltroons and cowards. It was not
tp be folded carefully and put away , but to
bo displayed before the people , and It was an
undisputed fact that whenever an attempt
had been made to fetter nnd conceal It It
had gone out nnd Impressed Itself more
deeply than ever on tlio hearts of the people.

Uev. C. W. Savldge of the People's church
pre-ached yesterday morning on "The Model
Mayor , " taking for his text : "And It came
to pass , when I heard these words , that I
sat down and wept , and mourned certain
days , and . .fasted and prayed before the God
of heaven. " "Mr. Savldge substantially odd ;
I do- not reler to noted men -who have held
I hla ofllco In our great modern cities , like
William II , Hotvland of Toronto , who did Itea
work for that city that will bo remembered
aa long as lime lasts. He hung up his scrip
ture Just back of the official desk : "Except
the Lord keep the city , the watchman
wakoth but In vain. " Nor do I refer to Mr. '
Plngreo , the solid business man of Detroit ,
who was elected to the offlco nnd who did a
mighty work in the line of truth and right
eousness , I refer to Nehemlah , a man lethe
often spoken of and but little- known by the
men who liold the office now.
Who was. he ? A Jew -who lived 440 years
be ( oreChrist. . He was of roynl.descent ; was
now a captive and an exile. Ho was cup
bearer to Artaxerxes , The Longhanded. ipe
was not elected by men , but wa& appointed
by Ood. Ho was not out of a job , but was
then filling a good position. He did not seek
the place because he lacked money , but be
cause he loved his city and his country. We
need a truer patriotism today , A man who
BoekD the olllco for the spoils Is not worthy hoof
tlie place. Nehemlah was twice- appointed to
this position by God Himself 'and filled the
place for the long perlocl of twenty-seven
years. He himself says that ho did not eat
the bread of the governor. He says hen
former governors were chargeable to the people
ple and took of them bread and wine and
40 shekels ol silver , but ho d l not , for he
feared God.
Oh , for the fear of God on the part of
public officials !
This would revolutionize our general state
and city governments. Ho not only served
without pay , but kept a big boarding house
ntuhlch there eat down dally at the mayor's
expense 150 Jews and a number of heathen
besides. Tha bill of fare each day was an
ox , six sheep , fowls and provisions of all
Ry reading his book , you find how he came
to take up hla work. He asked some of : heIrs
brethren who came to GCO him how affairs
were going on at Jerusalem. "Sad enough. "
they answered. "Tho Jews who live there
are In afillctlon and reproach , the walls are
broken down and the gates burned with lire. "
Nehemlah felt this deeply ; he sat Oo\ui.
wept , fn'sted nnd prayed lor days. He not
only felt bad , but he talked to God about It
for days together. Hero Is a real love for
the work ot God. He lived in n palace nnd i
worked lor a king , but his heart was with
his people In Jerusalem. It la not enough
that we feel deeply and even fast and pray
\Va must act.
The next time he appeared before the king
Iila countenance was sad , "You must , have
Ejonio great heart trouble. " said the king.
NeJicmlah told him what II was. and asked
permission to BO to Jerusalem. It was
crnnted and ho set out with official letters
and : a bodyguard. He was religious , but he
was business-like as well. He was wise ,
Arriving at Jerusalem he rode out on horse
back at night to BCD the ruin of the city.
No doubt he was tired after Iila long Jour
ney , tut ho could 'not sleep , Ills heart
was filled with a .great purpose. Ho en-
Ilitcd the people to aid him In rebuilding the
walls nnd restoring the city. The people
rallied to htm. What men ot every age
want U leadership. Oh I how these , men
worked ! They wrought with gne hand , and
held n tpear In the other. They only
chanced their clothes for washing. They
put In long hours , working from sunrise till
the etars appeared. Every man built er ,
asralnst hla own houte. That's what we've >
got to do. If we can't build a trail against
aln In Omaha , wo ought not to think nstof
going to Africa. Such a man as this had :
his eneullos. - There were three noted poli
ticians who led the opposition. The Hi
Sanballotvns the flrit of these , They de
clared that If a fox should run against that
wall , ha would break it down , < Mayor
Nehemlah was enough lor them every lime.
Sao \Oiat this man accomplished ! It me.U
wonderful what ona man can do , God
worki through men , elngly. He rebuilt
Jerusalem nni\ \ made her prosperous , He
worked great moral and spiritual reforma
tions. The people stood In the streets and
read the blbla for half b day at a time. He
reitored Ilia sanctity of the Sabbath. He was
mayor , policeman and judge , all In one.
Head his olllclai record and you -will see that
tbtt It true.
Officer * el Omaha , do rour duty ud the
people will back you and God will honor you
as He did Nehcmlnh.
No wonder a. great revival of religion fol
lowed. The people confessed and turned
from their fclns and the mayor of Jerusalem

Crane on Tuinwrnuco Reform.
As a prelude to bit sermon last evening
Her. Frank Crane At the First Methodist
church discu s d "The Present Situation of
the Temperance lUIorm. "
Ho reviewed what has been done In the
last generatldn In the way of Icsienlng the
drink evil , referring to the prohibition laws
of several states , the national prohibition
party , Iho local option system In the south ,
the dispensary experiment In South Carolina
lina , the mulct law of Iowa , the Norwegian
and Gothenburg plans and to the license
methods. He quoted Senators Frye and
Hale , James a , Illalne and Hannibal Hamlln
to show the satisfactory working of the pro
hibition law In Maine , and salJ ho was pre
pared to prove that the like laws In Dakota
and Kansas were better enforced than the
license law In Nebraska , which he condemned
without reservation.
Publ c sentiment against the public drinkIng -
Ing place he contenJcd was Increasing. He
talked at some length on the recent hostility
to the saloon phown by the Catholic church
In America , as ihown by the utterances of
Mgr. Satolll and Dlehop Watterson. Said
Mi- . Crane :
"If these prelates mean what they say and
shall carry on the war until the great Catho
lic church shall put Itself squarely against
the saloon business-It will be the greatest
no church so well equipped to deal the death
blow to the American saloon as the Catholic
chuich , May God speed It in Ibis direc
tion. "
He concluded by saying :
"It seemj to me that the duty of every
patriot Ib to work lor the prohibition of
the open saloon , and to use for this end that
means which he thinks to be the most effec
tive. The strength of the liquor traffic is
In the cities. Jts strength is there because
there the execution of law Is the most cor
rupt. This corruption exists largely be-
cauco the municipal elections are held upon
wrong Issues. The infusion of national
party politics Into city elections Is the great
handle which the saloon traffic uses to con
trol and corrupt the government of cltlee.
Therefore It seems to be that the first duty
of every citizen would be to exert himself to
the utmost to divorce municipal elections from
stale issues. This having been done
municipal government , hand In band , with
local option , can accomplish tha abolition
of the saloon. Hut whatever method may be
used. It la only a question of lime until the
liquor traffic , the chief Instrument of the
corruption of the American people and of all
other peoples , shall he driven out. Re
forms never turn backward , "

l.mi-.Mnklnff lloily ,
The question of n radical change In the
make-up of the city council which was sug
gested to the charter amendment commit
tee by Mr. John D. Howe , the other day hns
attracted considerably attention , and hns
been freely discussed both In nnd out of
official circles. The history of municipal leg
islation has been such as to develop a strong
sentiment among the larger property owners
In favor ot some Improvement In the pres
ent system , and the Ideas promulgated by
Mr. Howe are received with marked appro-
It IB claimed that much of the unfair leg-
Islntlon of the Omaha city council has grown
out of the fact that politics nnd personal
advancement have been the most powerful
motives that liavo controlled the official ac
tions of a majority of the members of the
council. The corporations have , always .been
active In municipal politics , and the fact
that a largo class of the best citizens take
but little Interest In the election of city offi
cials has operated to give the rings and com
bines in the various wards a. practical con
trol of the situation. The result has been
that many ot the councilman elected lmvo
gone Into ofllce handicapped by pledges nnd
tie-ups that they have been compelled to
make In order to secure election , and oven
when their Intentions have been honest they
often found .It difficult to reconcile their
Idea of their duty to the people with their
own Interests and ambitions.
The recent bitter flght over the union depot
ordinance has furnished a marked example
of this condition. It Is well known that the
councllmen who voted against tfie ordinance
were ; compelled to do it In the face of a po
litical pressure that It was almost Impossible
toma withstand , and that their position on the
mntter has cost them the support of Interests
est that will bo a powerful factor In their
ra-eJectlon or defeat. It is the general opin
lento that some measure should be adopted
to remedy this condition of affairs , and It Is
admitted that Mr. Howe has furnished a clew-
to what might bo a very salutary Innovation.
Some of the Ideas presented vary , ln some
particulars t from the original proposition In
detail , but agree In general conclusions.
Some declare that the abolition of the coun-
cllmen-at-largo would
amount to little more
the to reduce the expense of the city govern
me . These suggest that the best method
would be to take the council out of politics
entirely , and make It nn Independent body ,
appointed by the governor or the judges of
the district court. These various Ideas will
be presented to the amendment committee ,
wliero they will no doubt he vigorously corn-
batted by the members who ha\e corporation
tendencies * ,
Tn discussing his proposition Mr. Howe
said that he believed the records of the past
furnished sufficient evidence that the pres
ent system was unsatisfactory In many re
spects , and was far from being the best that
could be devised to protect public and pri
vate Interests. Up to a few years ago the
council had consisted of ona member from
each . ward , whoso especial business It was to
tools after4 the Interests , of hla own ward.
This ; system led to such abuses as to sug
gest the addition of nn equal number of
councllmen at large , -who would make It
their business to look after the Interests qf
the city at large , without reference to the
wishes of any particular locality. The re
sult had been thatthe representation of each
ward , had 6nly been practically Increased
from one councilman to two , and the evils
which It was expected to remove hud rather
been Increased than remedied , nnd the ex
pense of government very largely Increased.
"In my opinion , " continued Mr , Howe , "we
should cither abolish the office of'council -
man-at-Iarge altogether
or separate them
Into a new and Independent body which
thould have power to pass tfn all Important
matters before they went to the mayor. In
this manner we would hovea double fclieck ,
and It would be much more difficult for in
terested parties to railroad a measure
through the council than under the present
"The suggestion In regard to talcing tha
council out of politics Is a good one , and
probably the best Hint has been made. I
would favor n combination of the two Ideas.
I would have a city counc 1 consisting , aa
formerly/ one councilman from each ward ,
nrvd then have an upper house composed of
cauncllmen-at-large , who should he appointed
by the governor , and without reference to
politics. If on amendment carrying out this
idea could be passed , I think It would b ? the
best solution of the present difficulties that
has yet been presented. "
Dr , George L. Miller said that the tines-
tlon which was suggested was too Important
to be decided hastily. The local government
was moro Important to the
citizens of Omaha
than even the an
Government at Washington ,
and he should dislike to p'asa nn opinion
on such a radical' change without ample >
consideration.u a general principle he did
not think that the stale''government ' had
properly anything .to do with shaping munlcl-
paj legislation.
In recant to , the ideaof a double coun
cil , Ur. Miller sold that he was in favor of
any measure that operated to put a check
on hasty and Impulsive legislation. The
House of Lords In
England , miserably con
stituted though It waa , had j > cen found to be
a most salutary check'on tlie .Commons , nd
without the two houses tlio'covcrnment at
Washington would be
a-most unsatisfactory
Institution. Tlie abuses pf .the present sys
tem were patent tonil , and any change that
promised real and
permanent benefit was to
be welcomed. Hut the
question was too Im
portant to be decided liny
hastily , and If any
notion was to be taken , it should only be
after It had receive { ho best Judgment beef
the ablest and most experienced men of the
Street Commissioner Balcombe said that he
was emphatically in favor
of some change
In the
present government of he
city. "I have no doubt , " said he , " at
tome measure would make a decided atn
provement In the management of city affairs
nnd result In material rsx
benefit to the tax
payers. My Iden Is that tha city council
ought to bo taken entirely out of politics.
U is politics more than afllclal corruption
that Is responsible for most of the bad gov
ernment that we have to endure.
"The general Idea that the councllmen
ceive money for their voles and Influence
In favor of certain measures has but little
foundation In fact. Of course there' will il-
ways be some men who are In ofllce for what
there Is in It , but these cases are not so
frequent as some people suppose. The IC-
tions of councllmen
are controlled more
largely by their political ambitions than
anything else , and they are often afraid to
vote Just us they believe they ought to for
fear that It will cost them votes. As a rule
the more Influential members of the council
regard their ofllce as a stepping stone , either
to a second term or to somethingbetter. .
Consequently their entire official conduct
shaped so as to best serve the end which
they have In. view. Tlio power which local
corporations wield In politics Is well known > ,
and In order to obtain the benefit of that In-
fluence many officials are willing to adopt >
a course that they \vquld * unhesitatingly
condemn 1C they had no ambition Co tfr\e
beyond that of representing the best Interests
of the people. When n councilman , does have
the stamina to break away and do just whit
he believes Is right. Independently of nny
political Influence that may be brought to
bear , ho Is usually promptly turned down
as EOOII as lie upp'ear [ or re-election. He Is
alluded to as a crank and a fanatic , and It Is
very seldom that the people vindicate hl IB
conduct by a re-election.
"For these reasons , in particular , , and some
others In general , I am In favor of so chang
ing the present ejBtem that a city 'council-
man shall be absolutely Independent of poli
tics , I would favor a reduction of the present
number of councllmen to fiveor seven , and
have them give their entire time to the city
business and receive a proportionate salary ,
would have them appointed by the gov
ernor , tha Bams a& Ilia members of the Klro
and Police Commission , and I am confident
that Miob a ej-stem would slve ua a beiur
government , and that ilia public Interests
would bo moro adcqinlttlt protected.
Mayor Dcmls remarked that at first thought
It wemed thai a moro- satisfactory system
might be nuggested byvlho Ideas advanced.
Ho believed that tli * plan of having two
houses was A good onon It-would afford an
additional I check , and intake It difficult for the
corporations to railroad * a mosuro through
the council , as they wwa sometimes able to
do , when they had onlytsingle body to deal
will . "As far as havlnrra council appointed
Jjj the 1 governor Is concerned , " ho added , "I
am not so sure. It wtxiM : certainly be a good
thing | | to remove the numbers aa far as possi
blc from political Influence , but perhaps there
would bo just as much Influence In It then AS
there i Is under the present system. If we
were always sure of having Just the right
sort of a governor , It would bo all right , but
thai le. uncertain , and It Tom Majors , for
Instance , were to be the appointing power , I
think the council would still be very much
In politics. | "
