Yesterday was observed as "Maine Me
morial day" at the First Presbyterian
church. The church , which had been taste
fully decorated with flags under the direc
tion of Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Orr , was crowded
nt the morning service. The music was ap
propriate to the patriotic character of the
special services and the pastor , Rev. W. S.
Barnes , preached a remarkably forceful ser
mon , taking as his subject "Tho National
Spirit Tested , " and his text from I Chroni
cles , xxl , 15. Mr. Barnes said In part :
"The destroying angel was commanded to
cease his severity against Jerusalem when
the purpose of his errand was accomplished.
'It Is enough ; stay cow thlno hand. Go not
beyond what Is necessary In the awful work
of destruction. In the execution of Justice ,
remember mercy. Be not carried awny wlt h
the passlonlor blood. As thou art tne fn-
Etrumcnt and agent of God keep thyself In
the spirit and temper of God. ' Thus God
spoke to the angel and undoubtedly therein
declared His will for all time , In similar
circumstances. We us a nation have felt
ourselves called upon to Interfere In God's
name In the affairs of another nation and
nfiwvo find ourselves In the midst of what
Dean Swift has called 'war , that mad game
the world so loves to play. ' Already we
have had our national spirit exalted by a
taste of victory and It may be well for us
Just now to listen while the duke of Welling
ton , the hero of Waterloo , tells us that
'nothing except a battle lost can be half so
melancholy as a battle won. ' The awful
sadness even of winning a battle may It not
escape our serious attention.
"And now on this Sabbath designated as
'Maine Memorial day' It may be well for us
to tlx our minds quietly upon the signifi
cance of the present war from the Christian
standpoint. The destruction of the Maine
filled us with horror and with an Indigna
tion from which wo shall not soon recover ,
and It Is prefectly proper to erect an endur
ing tribute to the memory of those who fell
the Innocent victims of a most diabolical
plot. But beyond that the event Itself has
a larger significance ; It marks the turning
point , the arousing point for us as a nation
In the matter of Cuban relief. It brought
us to our feet to demand what In recent
years we have been Insisting that other
Christian nations should demand , namely ,
that In this late age of the Christian era the
nations of the earth must all conduct their
government of their subjects In harmony
with the principles of civilization.
Will End llnil Government.
"It Is well then to mark and remember
that calamity which did so much to rouse
our tardy energies to engage In this hu
manitarian war. And the war Itself , we
may venture to say , Is destined to have a
largo significance In the history of the world ,
In that It will set an example and establish
a precedent among the nations , In the matter
of the strong coming to the rescue of the
weak and delivering the oppressed with ab
solutely no selfish purpose. There are good
Indications that the time Is near at hand
when no human being will be the helpless
subject of a bad government. We are com
ing to see that national boundary lines arc
only artificial , not divine. The doctrine 01
the brotherhood of man is making the worli
feel a measure of responsibility for its
brother man wherever he may live ant
closely after this follows that other great
Idea of the brotherhood of nations. No na
tion Is to bo permitted to bo entirely arbi
trary and supreme , even In the management
of Its own affairs. It must remember thai
It Is ono of the great family of nations anc
must keep Itself In harmony with the gen
eral family spirit. The Individual nation is
to bo regarded no longer aa absolute in Its
sovereignty , but must hold Itself subject. In
Its turn to supreme sovereignty of the earth
the consensus of all the nations , to which
ultimately every human being shall have
the Bright of apcal.
'This new doctrine is being rapidly de
veloped by the recent demand for Interven
tion in American affairs which , however
failed of execution , and by the intervention
In Cuban affairs which is now being exe
cuted. This war Is very different from the
ordinary wars of the world's history. It Is
different oven from the religious wars In
which men have fought for their own relig
ion , which is only ono form of fighting for
their own nation's supremacy. Into this war
religious questions have not entered. We
have laid precious lives upon the altar o
sacrifice and are voluntarily going to an
expense of hundreds of millions , almost en
tirely for a philanthropic purpose , with no
considerable material gain to como to us
but chiefly to discharge our duty as a mem
her of the great family of nations.
Good Time to Keep Cool.
"And now that the war Is on , it is 1m
portant that we keep our feelings undc
control and our heads clear , lest victory in
battle carry us Into a frenzy of excltemcn
and we forget the high motives that have
prompted us. We ought to be listening
eagerly for the voice that shall say 'It I
enough , stay now thine hand. ' We hea
fears openly expressed in many quarter
that the war may not be serious , that the
great preparations made and making may
not bo needed , that Spain may be persuadec
to yield without giving us the opportunity
for another so-called glorious victory. A
a people , wo are fond of excitement , ant
are waiting dally , hourly , to hear that every
war ship Is speeding away on an errant
of destruction and the army moving rapidly
forward to victorious conflict. Are we not
developing a thirst for blood , with our con
fidence in our superior strength ? And la
I there not something of the barbarous In
that , something of the tyranny of brute
force against which we have need to been
on our guard ? Then , pause a moment.
This is a humanitarian war , and shall wo
forget to maintain the humanitarian spirit
toward the enemy ? What does It mean for
them ? They are undoubtedly already In sore
plight , both abroad and at home. It was
perfectly right and our plain duty to say
to Spain , 'You must withdraw from Cuba , '
and It was undoubtedly right for us to load
our guna to show that we meant It , and to
fire as many of them as may be absolutely
necessary. Their refusal at first was per
fectly natural , but If brought to a better
mind by the Influence of good friends , or
under the smart of the first stroke of the
uplifted hand they shall speedily say , 'We
comply , ' shall we then be disappointed be
cause they did not by persistent stubborn
ness , give us the opportunity to whip them
severely by destroying their property and
blowing their men into eternity ? Nay , we
ought to rejoice It we can be spared from
Inflicting the awful stroke. If the voice of
Providence should now say , 'It Is enough ,
Uy now thine handaught to U the
happiest people In the world to hear that i
"Our nation U In danger of falling Into
A grave error right here. It Is easy for a
nan In the heat of conflict to lose his better
udgmcnt , and the spirit of a nation Is
mrclor to control than ono man's spirit ,
Vhat are wo fichtlng for ? la It to avenge the
oss of the Maine and her men ? If It Is ,
hen God forgive us , for the righteousness
of our cause la largely departed. Nay , even
low wo may hear the voice of God speaking
n tones of thunder out of a clear sky : 'Von-
; canco Is mine. I will repay , salth the
x > rd. ' H may be that the Spaniards deserve
punishment for their unchristian govern
ment , but arc we qulto sure that we' have
een commissioned by heaven to chastise
hem ? We may only say In the words of
ox-Prcsldent Harrison that 'wo have as a
nation toward Cuba the same high commls-
lon which every brave hearted man has to
trlkc down the ruffian who beats a woman
or a child , and will not desist. ' For what ,
f not for this , does God make a man or
nation strong ? Wo have risen In our might
and stepped forth to set free 1,500,000 of
oppressed human beings and may God help
us not to fire a single gun more than may
io necessary to accomplish this benevolent
Tremcndonn Ilc i > oii l1illl < > ' .
"A nation In declaring war should bo
Iftcd above Its passions by the tearfulness
and solemnity of the act. It should appeal
with unfeigned confidence to heaven and
earth for Its uprightness of purpose. By
nothing does a people Incur such tremendous
deus responsibility as by war. These things
are more solemnly true than over In these
lays of the awfully destructive modern In-
sjrurnents of wajj Let us not fall to appre
ciate the tiecp solemnity of 611 * r situation.
What though It might bo disappointing to
our enlisted soldiers to bo discharged wlth-
ut once smelling powder , and to our splen
did navy to settle down again without an
other opportunity to display Its terrible
skill ? That Is a small matter indeed. Let ,
us remember that the real spirit of our na-
lon Is now to bo tested. We entered upon
ho war for a humanitarian purpose ; shall
we now bo found sufficiently self-masterful
and sufficiently magnanimous to maintain
a humane spirit In the actual conduct of
.ho war and the earliest possible termina
tion of It ?
"Let It be remembered that we arc making
ilstory , and that this history will be read
after the heat of the present excitement Is
over , and we shall be Judged In the light
of our exalted position among the nations
of the earth. We have a high mission among
the nations as a peace-loving and peace-
maintaining people. Wo have opportunity
o teach the world a great lesson In the line
of high and unselfish motives In warfare.
Lct our money and the lives of our men bo
spent phllanthroplcally If necessary , and
for no other purpose until wo shall hear
God himself say 'It Is enough ; stay now
thine hand. ' And may God grant that the
war be brief and the carnage small. "

DBS MOINES , May 8. ( Special. ) It Is
beginning to look as though at least 15
per cent of the Iowa troops will be turned
own by the physical examination and that
00 or more recruits will bo needed to take
ho places of those who will be dropped ,
lost of those who fall to pass the examlua-
lon are men who have worked for years In
tores and business offices , and having led
edcntary lives do not meet the require
ments In weight. All such men are gaining
apldly In flesh and strength whtlo In camp ,
however , and should the examination bo held
a month later very few would fall to tip
he scales at the required point. The men
who arc turned down Include some of the
most efficient officers and men In the Na
tional Guard , and there has been consider
able grumbling , but all realize that Uncle
Sam fs very strict about his fighters , and
they have decided to accept the Inevitable
with good grace , 50 h.ome , build up In flesh ,
raise companies to be held as a reserve force
and be Ijj readiness for the next call. The

Brigade drills are being held each after
noon from 2:30 : till 5 o'clock. General Lin
coln , who Is In command of the camp and
Is likely to bo appointed brigadier general
to have command of the Iowa troops when
they go to the front , Is well pleased with
the drills and says that there are no four
regiments In the country which can beat
Iowa's. He served as an officer In the con
federate army throughout the civil war and
knows good soldiers when he sees them.
Each afternoon during the brigade drill a
battle line Is formed and the men arc put
through the evolutions they would be called
upon to make if In real action. The battle
lines formed arc over a half mile long , and
when the order to advance Is made the
troops move forward In a solid and formid
able line , with perfect alignment and with
rapidity. The regular tinny7 officers here say
that the Iowa troops are a finely drilled lot

generals , ex-colonels of the regular army ,
have been assigned to the volunteer army
hero : General A. S. Burt , late of the Twen
ty-fifth Infantry ; General Sumncr , late col
onel Third cavalry ; General Snyder , colonel
Nineteenth Infantry. Other assignments can
bo expected at any moment.
The first Installment of equipments for
recruits arrived today and wcro distributed.
Recruits arc now coming In rapidly. Ono
hundred reached hero today , and Information
from recruiting officers Is to the effect that
all the recruits required nlll be obtained
In a comparatively short time.
It has been decided to locate the camp of
the volunteer army on the west side of the
Lafayette road near Chlckamauga creek ,
and a force of men has been put to work
preparing the grounds and getting them In
readiness for occupancy.
Fred Clayton , Ed Hill and John Lane ,
\hp were arrested Satyrdny ajtcrncon for
attempting To flimflam Thomas Norsuog. es-
aped from the city Jail at an early hour
Sunday morning and are still at large. No
one around police headquarters appeared to
know much about the escape , but It was
asserted by the day force that the men
gained their liberty while the night force
was still on duty. Just how the birds es
caped U a mystery , but It Is elated that the
ron door to the corridor was sprung open
at the top far enough to allow those Inside
o get out. Not long ago the Jail was all
Ixcd up Inside at nn expense of nearly $50 ,
he locks on the cells being protected by
icavy wire netting. Why the prisoners were
not locked in the cells Is a question for
the jailer or chief of police to answer. Only
a day or two ago Mayor Ensor made the
statement that his Idea of appointing a day
and night Jailer was to prevent escapes and
nsuro the attendance of an officer at the
prison all of the time. Whllo he did not say
so , he Intimated that the first time an es
cape occurred the police officer responsible
vould lose his Job. This time Is probably
an exception , for persons who frequent the
lall assert that the mayor called on the
: hree prisoners Saturday night and had
quite a talk with them. Not a half hour
after the mayor had left the Jail a well
known sport ventured the assertion that
not one of the prisoners would bo brought
to trial.
Ono of the officers on duty at the Jail yes
terday afternoon tried to show how the es
cape was effected and managed to spring
the door fully two Inches. The mouths of
the police have been closed so far as talkIng -
Ing about the occurrence is concerned , but
the truth will come out before long. The
most-probable solution of the problem Is that
the prisoners were released on orders Is
sued by the mayor. Investigation shows
that not a door or window at the Jail has
been tampered with. The lock on the big
outside door IB of Yale manufacture and
made1 expressly for Jail purposes.
At the request of Police Judge Babcock ,
Norskog , the complaining witness , was taken
to the county Jail in Omaha late Saturday
night by Deputy Sheriff Mitchell. A couple
of hours later Clayto'n , Hill and Lane were
seen boarding a street car for Omaha , and
they were not In custody either. It is un
derstood that County Attorney Baldrlgo
sent for Norskog In order to prevent friends
of the prisoners from squaring the matter ,
and ho intended filing'state complaints
against the confidence men this morning.
Just after Deputy Sheriff Mitchell left the
Jail with the complaining witness Bill John
son , the negro brought from Iowa by Chief
Brennan and who Is charged with grand
larceny , was securely locked In the steel
cage , but the three star boarders were al
lowed the liberty of the corridor.
When seen yesterday afternoon Mayor En
ser denied all knowledge of the escape and
stated that ho would ask the council com
mittee on police to hold an Investigation
tonight. The mayor Insists that the present
Jail Is not strong enough to hold desperate
criminals and declares that better protection
Is needed. It Is also stated that at the In
vestigation to be held tonight the mayor will
ask Police Judge Babcock to verify his
statement to the effect that a certain city
official turned the confidence men loose. The
last Investigation held by the police com
mittee of the council was a farce and there
is no reason to suppose that the one to be
called , wlll bo any different. It Is possible
that some information may bo made pub
lic at the Investigation which will reflect
upon the mayor and his appointees.
Municipal MuIitltiK Plant.
Mulclpal ownership of a lighting plant is
one of the questions In which the present
city officials are greatly Interested in and
without a doubt the proposition will bo voted
upon by the people at the election this fall.
The owning and operating of a water works
plant Is considered out of the question on
account of the expense and the compara
tively low rate charged by the Omaha Water
Works company. It Is true that some claim
the rate of $60 per year for a fire hydrant Is
too much , but when everything Is taken Into
consideration and a comparison with the
rates charged at other places of this size
Is made the rate Is not excessive. All of the
water used at the engine houses , the city
hall , police station and schoolhouses Is free ,
for the reason that while' the water com
pany has the right to charge for the water
used at those places , It has never done so.
Then the streets nro frequently flushed and
no account Is taken of the water u cd. Con
sidering thfxo donations It Is safe to say
that the hydrant rental Is annually reduced
several thousand dollars. There was a
scheme on foot hero once to erect water
works at the foot of O street and pump
water from artesian wells to the stock yards
and packing houses , but It had to bo given
up on account of the small supply of water.
Since that time the municipal ownership of
n water works plant has never been seriously
Mayor Ensor has taken the matter of
electric lighting In haud and has obtained
statistics from cities owning anil operat
ing their own plants. Whllo some cities
make a creditable showing In the saving
of cxpens'c this Is not the case In every
Instance. Where electric lighting and
water works are operated In conjunction
n saving Is noted because ono set of boil
ers will operate both plans , but where the
operation of these plants Is undertaken
singly It Is not always the success antici
pated. The mayor Is of the opinion that It
would bo a good scheme to vote bonds for
the purchase of the local electric light
plant. This plant now Includes the latest
Improved machinery and at least fifty miles
of street wiring. To purchase the plant
outright , Including the value of the unex-
plrcd franchise , would cost In the neighbor
hood of $90,000 , possibly more. Each arc
light Installed nt street Intersections costs
the city $12 per month , and Including the
lights used In the city offices , Jail and fire
halls the city pays monthly the sum of
$350. Whether the city would undertake to
supply private consumers with light Is a
question which has not been settled by
those Interested In this movement , but
moro than likely such would be the case.
Iloiiort oil Clty'n IloolCH.
Prof. Beck , who was selected by the
finnncc committee of the council to check
up the books of the city officials , has com
pleted his labors and will bo ready to make
n written report of the condition of the
city's finance at the next council meeting.
The books have been checked from April.
1SOG. up to and Including April , 1898. cov
ering n period of twenty-five months. Dur
ing this time the city treasurer has re
ceived , from all sources , the sum of $495-
000 , and Including the balance on hand at
the close of business the last day of April
the sum reaches a total of over $532,000.
In this sum the school funds are Included ,
but the amount received from liquor
licenses this year Is not counted. Very few
people here have any Idea of the amount
of business transacted at the treasurer's
office and the totals mentioned will bo a
surprise to many. In addition to the reg
ular report generally made by experts , Prof.
Beck will Include a statement showing the
receipts and disbursements In each fund
during the last two years. This Is some
thing which will be of great value and will
show Just where every cent received has
gone. The average shows that nearly
$250,000 are received and disbursed by the
city treasurer every twelve months. This
same showing cannot bo made for the
years prior to 1S96 for the reason that the
volume of business In this city has In
creased to a great extent within the last
twenty-four months. Taxes are coming In
a great deal faster than formerly and people
ple are paying back-taxes which have been
allowed to accumulate for years and this
of course adds greatly to the total.
