YORK , Neb , Sept. 18 ( Special Tele
gram ) The subject of the address given by
John G Woolloy jestertlay afternoon nt the
Methodist conftrcnco was "Christian Citizen-
ship" Ills principal thoughts wore on the
duty of the Christian at the ballot box and
of his giving tostlmon } of the faith nml
power ultliln him. lie laid down the state
ment that the liquor quest'on ' Is about the
most one-sided question before the people.
Nearly all sides of n question Imve their ad
vocates i\cu sla\cry hid Its advocates ,
and many of them were honest In their opin
ions Hut the saloon Is without an excuse.
"If that's so , why docs not It die ? " he said
"Tho reason Is It does not want to die and
} ou Christian \oters have not the poncr to
kill It. There are 6,000,000 or 7,000,000 of
church voters , but they ha\o no power
Power Is what you ticcd. The bible saja
that ho has power who lus the Holy Ghost
within him , but I 1m o seen preachers who
talk long and loud of the Holy Ghost , who
pri ch It and teach It and pray It , but wlio ,
on election day , nro never suspected , of hav
ing any such a spirit within them when It
comes to the ballot box. The church move
ment for better citizenship has been side
tracked while the saloon train goes by. The
saloon keepers ha\o the road and the cnurch
members are hustling out of the way. Theru
Is one thing about the saloon keeper that
commands my admiration He always know 3
how to vote. He votes just one way and
that way Is In the lutorcsts of his own busi
ness. Ho has more respect for his business
than the church member has for doing right.
Tbo excuse the chinch member has for not
voting the way his conscience tells him Is
that his vote will bo of no avail. Hut It
Is Important that the Christian vote right ,
not so much for carrying ; an election , but to
glvo testimony of the faith that Is In htm. "
In the evening the church extension so
ciety anniversary was celebrated Dr Hal-
stead of Lincoln , Rov. Mr. ICemper of Seward -
ard and Dr. W A. Spencer of Philadelphia
spoke Dr Spencer's address was the prin
cipal event of the evening. Dr. Spencer Is
the corresponding secretary of the national
organization. His address was full of In for
mation as to the great work the society la
carrj Ing on. The object of this society , as
Its name Indicates , Is to establish churches
In new and unsettled portions of the country
During thlrt-ono years , up to Julj 1 , 1897 ,
the board of church extmslon has received
and disbursed over $5,857,000. About two-
thirds of this amount passed through the
general fund , available for donations to
churches , anil one-third through the main
fund , of which over $1,017,000 Is permanent
capital , for use onlj by loans With this
amount the board has aided over 10,000
churches scattered throughout the United
States aril territories. The receipts have
steadily Increased until the last four jears ,
but the demands foi aid have grown more
On the first day of July of this jear there
worn on file granted applications , promising
donations of $42,000 , on conditions with
which the churches to be aided must first
comply , mak tig the completion of the
enterprise a reasonable certainty. Hut July
1 , 1897 , the general fund was overdrawn
$1,000 , requiring to meet promises already
made on additional $4r > ,000 There were on
fllo at that date appllcst'ons not yet consid
ered , asking donations cf $14,000. The board
of extension Is behind the present need of
funds for donations to the amount of $59 000.
Dr. Spuicer said that the Nebraska confer
ence had given to the board over $12000 ,
Imt had received In donations over $100,000.
A meeting of the local corps of the Grand

jy many of those present
The principal feiture of this morning's
session of the conference was the address
delivered b > Bishop Nlndo 'before ' the candi
dates for admittance In full connection
There were five admitted to deaconshlp Tour
others , who had already been admitted to
leaconshlp were admitted to the conference
In full connection. Their characters were
passed The words of the bishop were lis
tened to with clone attention by all He
spoke on the rcsponslbillt } of the mlnlstrj
and of the necessity of fellowship and com
panionship in and oni of the conference
Great care should ho exercised , thought the
speaker , In chocs i g the ministry as a life
work. No man should he In the
Methodist ministry who did not he-
long there and \ - ho did not adhere to
all Its tenets The bishop further touched
on the work of the minister. He should
preach Instructively , Impressively nnd per-
inaslvely. Whrti a minister falls to keep his
audience awake It Is because he is not
preaching to them In the right way. Give
the congregations new Ideas , get them to
thinking as to pastoral work , bo companion
able , but be discreet " .cry pastor ought to

question of chopping down the rotten motor
poles on Twentj-fourth street. Some tlmo
ago Superintendent Holland was directed , by
resolution of the council , to Inspect all of
the poles sustaining motor wires ou Twenty-
fourth street and make a report. Before
Holland had a chance to Inspect the poles
Superintendent Tucker of the street car com
pany showed up and agreed to remove the
decayed poles In a short time , substituting
iron poles In the Business part of the city ,
and wooden ones In the residence portion
Color was given to this statement fiom
the fact that workman were at that time
engaged In replacing docajed poles on Six
teenth street just north of Vlntoa street.
Yesterday several of the councilmen
learned that the street car company was
stringing a heavy feed wire along the poles
on Twenty-fourth straet , thus adding to
the weight the po\es \ were already sustain
ing This caused a meeting of the com
mittee on streets and allejs and fire and
water , and Superintendent Holland was In
structed to go ahead with the inspection
of the poles on Monday moinlng. He was
furthei Instructed not 'to allow nnj statement
the street car people might make Interfere
with the performance of this dut > . Some
of the councilmen said that unless tbo de-
cajcd poles were replaced at once thej
would be chopped down and the motor com
pany would then be compelled to put up
good , substantial poles

The Eastside Improvement club Is greatly
gratified at the Interest manifested in the
proposed now street car line. At the meet
ing of the club , which was held Friday
night , there was a largo attendance of out
siders as well as membeis of the organ
ization. Letters were read by the secretary
from "well known capitalists assuring the
promoters an abundance of money as soon
as the franchise was granted. Picparatlons
are balng made to lequcst tho-city council
to submit the question of another franchise
to the voters at the election to bo held on
November 2.
Dr. Kerr of the Bellcvue college- attended
the meeting , and assured the club of the
hearty support of the educational Institu
tion of which ho Is the head. The doctor
said that with a car line between South
Omaha and Bellevue the attendance at the
college would be more than doubled. He
figured that at least fifty students would
come down from Omaha In the morning and
retuin in the afternoon. Besides this there
would bo considerable going back and forth
by the residents of Bellevue , which would
"sslst materially in paying the expenses of
the propose 1 line.
President Breen of the Improvement club
Hajs that he Is receiving encouragement
dally from citizens hero who desire better
street car service , and slnco all the money
needed has been pledged ho Intends to work
from now on for the franchise. This can
only bo obtained by a vote of the paoplo , and
on account of the desire for additional street
car service by a majority of the residents
It Is not thought that the council will re
fuse to submit the proposition to tbo voters.
