Rev. Robert Tost, now pastor of the

the pastorate of the St. Mary's Avenue Con
gregational church of this city from the
recently appointed committee on supply
and selection of a pastor. Mr. Tost will
accept the call, aud although absolute con
firmation rests with the action of the con
gregation at a meeting to be held next
Wednesday evening this action will be of a
purely formal character, there being no op
position to the action of the committee.
Mr. Yost will not. be able to change from
Ills present location for about two months,
this being. In some measure, due to the fart
that his name has been under consideration
for only ten days. His appearance In the
pulpit yesterday was the first opportunity
the congregation had to see and bear him.
8t. Mary's Avenue Congregational church
baa the largest memberrhip of the churches
f that denomination In Nebraska. The
alary paid former pastors hss never been
lesa than $2,600. Dr. 8. Wright Butler, at
one time pastor of St. Mary's church, now
of Poughkeepste, N. T., will fill the pulpit
for several Sundays until Mr. Tost assumes
charge. t ' '
Only Thirty-Three Yeara Old.
Mr. Yost Is a young man, 33 years old; a
graduate of Monmouth (III.) college, and
of the Allegheny Theological seminary of
the United Presbyterian church. ' Ula first
charge was the First United Presbyterian
church In St. Louis In 1897, where he re-
tnalned about two and one-half years. He

tional church of Cortland, N. Y., where be

has earned a reputation for energetic and
successful 8unday school work. . He al
ways preaches without notes. .
Mr. Yost last evening preached, on the
theme, "Honesty and Deflniteness of Pur
pose." The sermon and the speaker's de
livery left an excellent Impression upon
the congregation, and wers received as evi
dences of Mr. Yost's character as a man
and his conception of the duties and respon
sibilities of a pastor. - -
Mr. Yost will leave for home this morn
CRONK WITHOUT OPPOSITION
Other Candidate for Oraad Exalted
Ruler of the Elks With
Following the great success of the Elka
fair, comes the gratifying assurance that
George P. Cronk, the man In whose Interest
the fair waa projected, as the money raised
ra to ba used partly to advance his candi
dacy for the office of grand exalted ruler,
Bow baa no opposition for that place.
' Until a few days ago there waa quite a
contest In prospect between Mr. Cronk and
Judge J nines Nethaway of Stillwater, Minn.
Judge Nethaway'a friends made a hard fight
for their candidate and while Mr. Cronk
baa had all the best of the running from
the start, the Minnesota man promised, a
contest In the grand lodge which would have
been Interesting, if not close. Judge Neth
away ha a withdrawn from the race, leaving
the field clear at this time for the man
from Omaha, and from the action of the
lodges throughout the country It Is .hardly
probably that any other candidate will ba
mentioned who will have anything Ilka a
chanca before the grand lodge. This Is due
to two causes, aside from the popularity ot
Mr. Cronk. who as the mover of the plan
which reunited the Elks when Internal dls
aentlons threatened the dissolution of the
order, haa many friends in all parts of the
country.. To this personal popularity Is dus
tha act of the lodges In the principal cities
of the south and west In indorsing his can
didacy. The, other reasons are that on ao
count of the location of tha grand lodge In
Salt Lake City and the great growth of the
order In the west, the western delegates
will ba In a majority at the grand lodge.
Omaha lodge Is making active prepara
tions for the meeting of the grand lodge in
August. Saturday night Lew Raber and
Goodley Bruoker left for Salt Lake City to
make arrangements for quarter for 100
people who will go to that city from Omaha.
They will also arrange' for opening head

The receipts of the Nebraska McKlnley
Memorial association up to Sunday aggre
gated $1,612.01. When tha erection of a
monument to tha late president by popular
subscription was first prelected Nebraska
was counted upon to raise $5,000 for the
fund, but from present appearances work
will have to ba dona by all Interested In
the matter In order to reach that figure
by the time the money Is needed.
E. Roeewster, the secretary-treasurer of
the Nebraska association, has received In
structions to make a report of the work
so tar accompliahed, ao that It may be
presented to tha national association, which
will meet In Washington February 28. This
report will show the total receipts to the
time it is made out, and at the national
meeting the condition of tha general fund
will ba ascertained. Tha fact that the
report is being prepared does not mean
that the work ot raising subscriptions will
cease; but It will continue until the amount
required has been raised.
In the report published last Monday there
was an error In acknowledging the receipt
of money from A. F. Williams, postmaster
at St. Edwards. Tha amount a published
was $2.25, when It should hare been $17.27.

It la said that tha Committee baa assur
ance from tha majority of tha council that
when the tax la levied provision will ba

A member of tba committee aald: "At

tha question of tba rata la Omaha with
the companies. They have Jiiat suffered a
loss of about $5,000,000 In Pateraon, N. J.,

the United States waa aomethlng like $17,-
000,000, more than one-half ot which will
have to ba borne ' by the Insurance com

concession that wa demand, and that It
may ba in our Interest to stand upon the

B0K IS CIBRALTAft OF CHRISTIANITY
Tknuh Attacked Throach Ceatarles
by F.Terr Form of ladta-alty.
Haired aad Rivalry It Stands
A large and representative audience was
at the First Methodist church . Sunday
morning to hear the reply of the pastor.
Rev. Dr. A. C. Hirst, to the recent utter
ances of Prof. Pearson of the Northwestern
university. The cream of tha bench and
bar, many representatives of other profes
sions and of tha business Interests of the
city were present. The sermon was fre
quently Interrupted by bursts of applause.
Dr. Hirst spoke from the theme, "Have the
Ministers Lost the Message." He began
by asserting that the act of Prof. Pearson
waa ungracious, disloyal and cowardly, be
cause the professor wss a member of the
Methodist church, which believes In the
inspiration of the bible and In miracles.
"The remarkable statement be made,"
said Dr. Hirst, "have aroused prompt and
serious comment Just atu severe criticism.
This Is not to be wondered at, because his
statements are so utterly revolutionary,
and. If true, take away the very founda
tions, not only of the Methodist Episcopal
church, but of evangelical Christianity.
"Here Is an excerpt from his published
views, which will give some Idea as to the
position he takes:
"'Very many of our religious teachers
are today making the so-called word ot
God of no effect because of the manner in
which they present It. Modern preaching
lacka truth and power because so many
churches cling to an utterly untenable
tradition that the bible Is an Infallible
book. This dogma Is their besetting sin.
It Is the golden calf of their Idolatrous
worship. It Is the palpable lie that gives
the ring of Insincerity to all their moral
exhortations. It theologians wish to re
gain lost leadership, or even to possess
an Influence In the thoughtfu,l part of the
community co-ordinate with that of poets,
philosophers and men of science, they must
completely throw aside the dogma of an
"He then goea on - to deny the human
mission and character of Christ, of course
denying Hi supernatural birth and pro
nouncing Hia resurrection a myth. He also
repudiates the miracles ot the bid and
"The bible Is primarily, secondarily and
fundamentally the will and testament of
Ood, tha everlasting Father, by which He
bequeathed His children a marvelous in
heritance. For example, there is no such
language of promise in the koran of the
Mohammedans, or In the' vedas of the
Hindoos, or In the mythology of the Greeks
and Romans, or In tba hieroglyphics or
myths of the Phoenician's, or tn the legends
of tha North American Indian.
"We believe In miracles because we be
lieve In the bible, not In the bible because
w believe In miracles.' We believe in
miracles which attest tba genuineness of tha
eal, because w believe in the authority of
the book aa tha revealed word of Ood.
"These are daya " of the struggle of
thought From schools of philosophy, from
circle of skepticism and from coteries of
trembling doubters comes tha grave an
nouncement that our la a transition time,
and hence the implied fact that somewhere
there Is being gathered some intellectual
dynamite that .Will send tha citadel of
Christianity forever crashing to ruins.
"A this hew century opens these things
are mora Intense, and hence It is evident
that - we are passing from era to era,
frdm age to age, through crises In the lite
of the. Intellect, through revolutions In tha
life of the heart, through new experlencea
In the life. of the conscience.
"The genuineness and authenticity of the
bible Is emphasised by the fact that It gives
the promise of pardon to the wrongdoer
and removes 'the burden ot sin and re
morse of conscience. It gives the promise
of victory over death, and the assurance
of a glorious immortality. It Is the Gibral
tar of the Christian's faith and though at
tacked through centuries by every form of
Indignity and hatred, criticism and reviling.
It stands undisturbed, mightier 'than ever
before In the .world's history."
DR. TREFZ ' CHALLENGES COJIWELL
Defends Honesty . of Poverty and
Scores Tax Dodgers.
Rev. Trefs's Sunday morning sermon at
Kountse Memorial church waa In the na
ture of a reply to the assertion credited
to Rev. Russell Conwell of Philadelphia In
hia recent lecture before tha Omaha Young
Men's Christian association to ths " effect
that In tbta present age, aa a rule, the poor
people are tha dishonest and tha rich peo
ple the honest members of society.
"Such a statement," declared Rer.Trf?.
"1 Just as falsa as to say that all poor
people ara honest and all rich people dis
honest. If It is the general nils of this
country that tha rich are honest, then ara
not we to admit that tha great corpora
tions,, trusts and monopolies of this country
with watered atock ara owned by the poor
people? Costly things purchased in for
eign countries are brought hither by means
of deception and lying, but I have not beard
of any dollar-a-day workmen filling their
homes with such Imported treasures.
.' '"Just now our city is making an effort
to force tha corporations to bear a Just
share of tha tax burden, but I baven't
learned that tha poor people ara tha owners
of such corporations, and a glance at the
personal tax list also might disclose that
tha poor have not a monopoly on dis
honesty. A millionaire gave $2,600 aa 40
per cent of the actual value of bis property,
yet he haa cut glass In his sideboard worth
tour times that much, a rug In his hall
worth nearly as much and an abundance of
such other belonging as fine furniture, fine
pictures and fin stock.

At' St. Mary'a Avenue Congregational
church Sunday morning Rev. Robert Yost
of Cortland, N. Y., preached to a large con
gregation, taking for his subject, "Satisfied
in Life." Rev. Yost said It waa not In our
circumstances, but In ourselves, that we are
satisfied In life. It would be possible to
be satisfied and happy, though we lived
many years beyond the allotted time ot
life. He said there were grumblers who
looked backward and found nothing to ap
prove in their lives aad who consequently
had nothing satisfying to look forward to.
He spoke of Abraham, Iaaac, David, who
after their long life on earth were satisfied
and were ready to go when the summons

own characters shine like Ood's through

Blessing Wlthoat Thaaka.
At Trinity cathedral Sunday morning the
pulpit was supplied by Rev. Philip S. Smith,
who until the illness ot Desn Fair gave
most of hia attention to a mission church
near Florence. Ha preached from St. Luke,
xvll, 17, "Were there not ten cleansed.
Where are the nine?" The sermon dealt
with the company of leper who met Jesus
outside the gates of Jerusalem and were
cleansed by him.
"While they were the victims of this
loathsome disease," said the speaker, "they
no doubt thought to be healthy again would
be the greatest blessing that could pos
sibly ' be bestowed upon them, but when
once they saw the white scales falling off
and the glow of health come they seemed to
regard the change aa a matter of course.
They were not grateful. Now that they
were cleansed they were, enjoying only such
health aa waa tha rule. Why, they asked
themselves, should we be grateful for only
such blessings aa are vouchsafed the mul
titude, for even now that we are cleansed
we are no better off than they?
"We today are as deficient In gratitude as
were the lepers. We think It hardly worth
while to be grateful for the common bless
ings of life for existence, health, home,
friends, food and the like. We take them
aa a matter of course. If we recover from
an Illness we aay It was the change of air
that did It, or a change of weather, or the
kill of a physician, forgetting that all
these are secondary and that back of them
la the power and love of God."
Dean Campbell Fair was reported as still
confined to his bed. He sits up every day,

A quiet effort 1 being made by Inter
ested parties to have the proposition to vote
bonds for a High school building submitted
at the April election. The proposition, ' if
submitted, will be for $100,000. This sum.
It Is asserted, will be sufficient to con
struct the building as planned by Architect
In connection with this report a member
ot the School league said last evening that
a determined opposition to a bond Issue
would be made. "There la no objection,"
remarked the member, "to the construction
ot ward school buildings, for such build
ings would take the place of some ot the
outside rooms now being rented by the
school district. In my opinion, the people
will never submit to the voting of bond
at the coming election for the purpose men
tioned, and especially as the grand Jury
has found considerable fault with the man
agement of affairs by the present board.
The chances are that It will be a long
time before the High school, which baa
been talked about so much, will be built."
Others of the School league appear to be
of the same opinion, and It may be that
for this reason the present board will not
ask the voters to decide the question of
bonds at the coming election.
A large amount of school money has
already been expended for a sits for the
proposed building, and nearly $2,000 has
been paid In architects' fees. If the mat
ter goes over the board can. If it so de
sires, use a portion of the liquor license
money coming due on May 1 to erect one
or two ward school buildings, but the reve
nue will not be large enough to warrant
the expenditure of $100,000 for a High
school building. The school district haa

The prise $20.00 overcoat offered by Hayden Bros, for the best answer ta th
question: "Why are Hayden Bros, selling the most clothing In Omaha T" waa awarded
to O. D. Jones, S611 Sherman avenue. There were S3 answers and the Judge consisted
of one man from each ot the three dally papers In the city. The manner of deciding
adopted by these Judges wss aa follows: Ten marks wan to be scored for a perfect
answer; conciseness, reasonableness and applicability were to be the chief test:
each letter was given a number and was to be read to the Judges without th nam
being submitted to them; each Judge was to mark Independently of the others bow
many pointa he considered the answer deserved; at the conclusion of the reading ot
all the answers the results were tabulated and the number of points given each an
swer by the three Judges added together. The answer receiving the most points ws to
get the prise. 30 points was, of course, the highest obtainable under this method
On carefully checking up the results It waa found that letter No. 32 received 26
points, the highest received by sny answer submitted. This letter was then taken
from tha others. Identified and certified to by the Judges and fousd to be that of O. D.
Jones, 2612 Sherman avenue. It read simply:
"They sell highest quality at lowest price." a. D. JONES.
There were many other splendid answers in every respect, bat the scoring of
the Judges gave tha above the prlie. A few others that scored high were as follows:
"Hayden Bros, sell the most clothing in
Omaha for the reason that they carry tH
most complete, largest and most up-to-date
line'in the city, have courteous sales
men and their clothing never falls to give
the very best of satisfaction."
C. II. COREY.
"Because the most people buy there and
I'm one of them." V. J. JOHNSON.
"Because Hayden Bros, have the best
goods for the least money. I think I ought
to know, for I have traded with you almost
nine years. My husband Is wearing an
overcoat now that he bought from you six
winters ago and it Is all right for every
day now. Hoping he will be lucky enough
to get one for Sunday, I remain,
