Easter, the queen of festivals of the
Christian church, waa celebrated in the
Cathollo churchea of Omaha with ait of
the ceremony which accompanies the ob
servance of days of high festival In that
' church. Tha principal mass of the day was
t a o'clock at St. I'hllomena'a cathedral,
where Bishop Bcannell officiated at solemn
high mass, twisted by a number of priests.
Tha bishop preached the sermon, in which
Tha mystery which we commemorate
this mornlim. namely, the resurrection of
our Lcrd from the dead, is the foundation
the hiatorlc foundation, as It wereon
which are baaed the proofs of all the other
mysteries of religion. "If Christ be not
risen again," rays St. Paul, "your fUh is
vain." Wut Christ rose from the dead as
He had foretold; and therefoie lie was
Ood and His teaching was the word of
' Ood. And through the all-wise providence
of Ood this fundamental fact of the resur
rection Is proved by human testimony the
most complete and the most convincing.
And yet our certitude of the truth of the
resurrection of Christ from the dead does
not coma to us from human testimony, per
fect as that testimony may be, but from
faith. We believe this mystery because It
la an article of our faith, and because faith
teaches it our belief in It Is unquestioning
and secure. Nor does this belief do any
violence to our reason or to our moral na
ture, but on the contrary It meets with the
approval of both. It satisfies the demands
of our reason and It falls in with fhe long
ings of our hearts.
What faith Requires.
An act of faith requires the assent of the
understanding and the consent of the will.
To know requires only an act of the under
standing, but to believe requires an act of
the understanding and an act of the will.
And this is true of human faith, as well of
the faith that la divine; It is true whether
we accept the testimony of mn or the
testimony of Ood. Without an honest and
a well-disposed will man may know, but
he will not believe. "If I speak the truth
to you why do you not beileve me?" said
our Saviour to the Jews. And lie Himself
answers the question: "Ha that Is of Ood
heareth tho words of Ood: wherefore you
hear them not because you are not of
It Is popularly supposed that men find
aomo Intrinsic difficulty In accepting re
ligious doctrines that the acceptance of
mysteries of religion is Incompatible with
freedom of reason and of conscience. Hut
nothing could bo further from the truth.
On the contrary man is disposed by his
very nature to believe In the mysterious
and the supernatural. He Is by nature re
ligious and he has a longing after tha
supernatural. He will embrace even super
stitious or grotesque beliefs rather than be
without any belief at all. And this Is true
of the so-called educated classes as It Is of
the simple and unlettered. Man In the ag
gregate must have a religion of some kind
and that religion will necessarily partake
of the supernatural. Men may boast of
their mental independence and of the fact
that they always Judge for themselves and
never assent to any doctrine without hav
ing first submitted It to the test of reason.
tut as a matter of fact they do nothing of
the kind; they only think they do. Such
nun no more reason out the grounds of
ttielr belief than does the simplest peasant.
Illogie of I nbellef. ,
When a man says that he believes In the
Blessed Trinity but not In the Incarnation,
or in the Incarnation but not In the Heal
Preaonce, or in the Keal Presence but not
In the Infallibility of the Church he Is but
I.'peatlng a lesson which he learned from
others from parents or teachers. He is il
logical without adverting to It; for the doc
trines which he accepts are as much be
yond his reason and his experience as those
k rejects. And yet, Illogical as It Is, this
mental attitude toward revelation la fast
becoming tho fashion of the day with cer
tain classes, and Is bringing about tho
most momentous changes in the religious
world. All around us men aro breaking
away from the old beliefs and the old tra
ditions and are formulating for themselves
new systems from which the supernatural
Is entirely eliminated. In countless publi
cations In books, periodicals and news
papers the supernatural is attacked or ex
plained away, and naturalism, or nature. Is
held up .to ua as the only subject worthy
of our study. And we are now becoming
so naDituaiea to this spirit tnat It no
longer shocks us. To the wise and the ob
servant, however, it Is a spectacle which
can be viewed only with grave foreboding.
It is a spectacle that menaces the welfare
of human society and the best Interests of
marjdnd: for human society cannot exist
Irreligious Are Immoral.
Now, If man be disposed by his nature to
be religious and to believe in the super
natural, why is It that so many persons
are striving to reason themselves out of
this spiritual habit of mind and to per
suadeAthers to do so likewise? The answer
that must be given to this question Is the
answer given to the Jews long ago. "He
that Is of Ood heareth the words of Ood;
wherefore you hear them not because you
are not of Ood." It is either the nonob
servance of the moral law or the difficulty
that la experienced In observing it that Is
at the bottom of all the Infidelity of the
world. The ten commandments are In
some way, directly or Indirectly, the rea
son why men refuse to accept the teach
Inga of tho Christian religion, and whv
other men, having once accepted those
teachings, afterward ceased to hold them,
or at least to regulate their conduct by
them. If the church were to abolish the
ten commandments tomorrow assuming
such a thing to be possible few would ob
ject to her dogmas. In saying this I do
not for a moment Imply that each In
dividual who attacks supernatural religion
Is morally bad. What I mean is that the
observance of the moral law Is today, as It
f as been In the past, man's chief difficulty
n accepting the religion of Jesus Christ
and 'hat It la to the moral law. and not to
arlleUs of belief, that he in reality, con
sciously or unconsciously, objects.
Mysteries Easy to Moral.
Now. every one admits, the believer and
the unbeliever alike, that we ought to ob
serve the moral law. No decent. Intelli
gent man holds the contrary. But he who
observes the moral law. who keeps the

difficulty In accepting all the mysteries of
the t hristian religion; and should he fail
in anything he will fall through a want of
accurate knowledge rather than through
any Inherent difficulty in the mysteries
themselves. And when the necessary
knowledge la attained auch a man will
with the grace of Ood. believe readily and
cheerfully, and will continue to believe;
and In this belief he will find wisdom
strength id consolation. On the other
hand he who la unwilling to observe tha
moral lav In all things will not accept the
supernatural doctrines of revelation for
his will, which is turned away from Ood.

MRS. HANCHETT DIGS DEEP
l ncovera Works of Prehistoric Exca
vators for Benefit of Philo
"Prehistoric Excavations" was the Sub
ject of a lecture delivered before the Phil
osophical club by Mrs. W. H. Hanchett
Sunday afternoon at the Paxton cafe. The
speaker based her remarks on Egyptian
civilization and preceded the lecture
proper by a talk on the civilization of the
people of the Tigris and Euphrates coun
try. "Until the last three or four years," said
Mrs. Hanchett, "no authentic record of the
people of these valley has been given.
"Menetho, the Egyptian priest, says that
ten klnga reigned before Mep.es and that
Menes founded Memphis, dammed the Nile
and built tho famous temple, and that those
kings came from This, a few miles from
Thebes, the center of Egyptian civiliza
tion. Historians of the present time have
been disposed to treat the story of Menetho
as legendary. Petrle, who, since writing
his first volume of the history of- Egypt
in IS! 7, has completely changed the thoughts
of the Egyptian archaeologist regarding the
first dynasty and has Menes and other kings
of that dynasty men of flesh and blood. He
has thrown authentic history a long way
back of the first king."
Mrs, Hanchett stated that the Investi
gation of the origin of man in the Nile
valley was a complex undertaking, but that
during the last three years work at Negada
and elsewhere had been so scientifically
comprehensive that one can now form a
complete chain of developments down to
Petrio's and DeMorgan's find of the tombs
of the early kings of the first dynasty, In
cluding that of Menea himself
In the course of extended remarks on
the early tombs of the ancients, she said
that the explorations In these burial places
furnish abundant proof of the transition
from the neollthe (stone) worker to the
The modes of burial, the said, were
three In number. The first was to cut the
body Into parts, another to acrape the
flesh from the bones and the third to lay
the body on its left side, double up ' the
lega, thrust the forearms out In front and
place the hands oVer each other In front of
the face. She told also of the ornament
usually placed on the body.

Rev. Jenks Rays It Turned Failure
The theme of Rev. Edwin Hart Jenks at
the First Presbyterian church Sunday
morning was "The Power of the Resurrec
tion." the text being taken from the epistle
to the Phllllplans. The speaker said, in
Dart: "I suooose there never waa a
gloomier morning to the Christians than
that first Easter morning. No man had a
worse record for failure. In the eyea of
the world, than bad Jesus at that time;
but when the women,, going to the grave
with sweet solces. were convinced that
Jesus had risen from the grave all this
gloom was changed, the feeling revolu
tionized and the hope of humanity came
with growing force across the world. By
death was Jesus Christ discredited, but
through His resurrection came a reaction
which established Him in the hearts and
minds of the world until He la invincible.
If It be true that Jesua Christ died, went
to the grave and rose again, it proves the
irr maculate conception of the Virgin Mary,
the miraculous birth of Christ and every
dogma of the Christian faith which Is de
bateable. It proves Him to be. In fact, the
Ron of God. This fact has been proved
as well as any fact of history. He died
alone. His disciples were scattered In
fear; they denied Him. Only the women
stood afar off and viewed the sacrifice.
They met to converse together in secret.
with the room closed because of fear of
the Jews, but Jesus came and stood among
them. Thomas put his hand In His aide
and bis finger in the . holes made by the
natla in His hands. Then He drew around
Him a band of men convinced of His di
vinity, of His power; men who were will
ing to die knowing that they had seen their
Lord alive after His death and burial. In
evidence of this truth they sacrificed their
lives and the noble army of martyrs who in
countless numbers gave up their Uvea in
the 'years which followed until Constantlne
went forth to conquer in the sign of the
cross bear wltnesa to the truth ot the
"Aa men have looked upon the fact of
the resurrection It has had power to estab
Ush them in Christianity, and they have
gone forth In newness of life. The resur
rection has had power to set the theory
of the Immortality ot the soul sure In our
hearts.1 Philosophers of every age have
tried to demonstrate' the theory of im
mortality, but it is only at the tomb of
Jesus that this has been done."
At the conclusion ot the sermon Dr. W.
O. Henry addressed the congregation on
the sublect ot an indebtedness of about
$3,000 that the church has been carrying
since 1894. He said the time seemed pro
pitious for lifting this debt and made an
appeal for subscriptions. Within a few
minutes the total sum of $3,000 was sub
scribed, to be paid within thirty days. This
money will be sufficient to entirely clear
the First Presbyterian church of debt.
TALKS OF LIFE BEYOD VALLEY.
Rev. Knhns Declares There la No
. Doubt of Future.
At Grace Lutheran church Sunday morn
ing Rev. Luther M. Kuhns preached on the
subject, "The Life Beyond the Valley ot
the Shadow." He found his text in verses
62 and 53 of the xxvllth chapter of Mat
thew, "And graves were opened, and many
bodies of saints which slept arose and came
out of the graves after His resurrection
and went into the holy city and appeared
unto many." The pastor aaid In part:
"This question of the future life con
cerns us far more than we are disposed
to admit. We are in reality intensely in.
terested In what awaits ua. All, we know
of It we glean from the scriptures.
"Christiana believe In a new life. In the
resurrection. But the doubters say that no
one has over come back to tell ua about
It, so how do we know. I maintain that
If the historical demonstration of any tact
la possible that of this resurrection Is. It
was not an Isolated fact, for there were
simultaneous occurrences ot a almllar na
ture recorded. This fact makes assurance
doubly sure. It waa not only Christ who
rose, but all theae holy men who had died
in Christ. The graves gave up those who
had been aaleep In Jesus, and they went
Into Jerusalem and appeared before their
loved ones. Meanwhile Christ also had
"What doubt need we have, therefore, of
the actuality of a future life? All those
dying In Christ shall live by the power
of God. We are not celebrating today the
death ot a dead Chrtat, but the life ot a
living one; these flowers are not witnesses
to the annihilation ot Christ by death, but
to His Immortality through God; theae
hymns we sing are not tributes to a de
parted Savior, but to one ever present."

"The use of the word 'asleep' Is not en

"but la used as best expressive of the Idea

awful details. It should be a comfort to
go to sleep and rest In the Lord Jrsus and

view of death that can stay our tesrs, but
there Is in the open tomb the power to

REV. TYKDALL O RESt RRECTIO.
Says Jesus Made Death the Gate to
"The Empty Grave" was the subject of
Rev. D. K. Tynlall's sermon at Trinity
Methodist Episcopal church yesterday
morning. He said In part:
"I find my text In Matthew xxvlil, .
which tells of the risen Christ and the
empty grave. Everything depends upon the
resurrection of Jesus. The forgiveness of
sins rests upon It, for If the deed rise not
we are yet in our sins. If the dead rise
not our preaching is vain and our hope is
gone, and we are of all men most miserable.
If the dead rise not hope sees no star nor
any bow of promise over arching our moral
sky. Thauk Ood for an empty grave!
"In the resurrection Jesus showed Him
self master of death, man's last enemy.
Herod the Great could not entrap Jesus, the
Sadducees eould not entangle Him and Satan
could not tempt Hltn to sin; nor could dea'h
and the grave hold Him. He waa the
Prince of Peace and the Lamb of Ood. but
also the Lion of the tribe of Juda, robbing
death of Its sting and the grave of its vic
tory. "The resurrection of Jesus was no sham
or deception. It was rot tho surviving of
suspended animation, coming out of a
trance or recovering from a swoon, but the
coming to life after death! He rose and
burst the band of death and triumphed o'er
the grave. He was the first to master
death. Samson could carry off the galea of
Gaia, but not of death. Julius Caesar
could cross the Rubicon, but could not re
turn across the Rubicon of death. Jesus
made death but the gate to eternal life and
"I am not surprised that Jesus crowned
a miraculous life by the greatest of all
miracles that of the resurrection. Samson
slew more In his death than In his life;
Paul's eventful life ended with a bright
vision of his eternal crowning glory. Christ
crowned. His matchless life by rising from
the dead. Just as He said and as we might
expect. How happy the two Marys when
they went to His grave and saw the empty
tomb! How happy we would be today to
behold the tombs of our deceased loved ones
empty and to see them In their resurrec
tion beauty and eternal glory! We shall so
do some glad day."
SEW MEMBERS ESTER THE CHIRCH.
Fifty-Six Take Their First Communion
at Westminster Presbyterian.
Special communion service was held at
the Westminster Presbyterian church Sun
day night and fifty-six new members re
ceived into the fellowship. For the Easter
sermon, delivered in the morning, the pas
tor. Rev. T. V. Moore, took as hla thm.
the-significance of the resurrection of
Lnnst. from tho text. "Christ bein ral.eH
from the dead, died no more; death hath no
more dominion over Him."
He aald in part: ""We will atudy the sub
Ject under three subdivisions: First, the
fact of the resurrection. The statement
that Jesua was resurrected Is an unique
fact. It la not equivalent that He was
raised from the dead and returned to
earthly life, but raised to a region above
death. Others have been brought to life,
but none have been removed from the
power of death and all are obliged to again
pass through the grave of dissolution. Death
has no more dominion over Jesus.
"Second. Jesua claimed to be divine In
origin, character., destiny, the son of God,
and the Judge of men. These claims could
only be authenticated by being submitted
to the obloquy of the grave. He sub
mitted Himself and came forth, not subject
to the power of death, but to the deathless
"Third, the motive for a practical life.
If Jesua has risen Into the world of God
and we are to follow Him, then We should
begin in this life to live' according to the
principals or the life that Is to be eternal.
The Apostle says; 'If ye are risen with Christ
seek these things that are above, where
Christ Is aeated on the right hand of God.'
Thus In this we are afforded a strong mo
tive to live above not only sin, but even
above also mere worldly Interests."
Special Easter musio by Yhe choir and a
beautiful solo by Mrs. Teal added greatly
to the service.
KNIGHTS TEMPLAR AT CHIRCH.
Aanunl Service Attended at Dr. Hirst's
Church Last Murht.
As la their Easter custom, the members
ot Mount Calvary commandery, Knights
Templar, attended church last night In a
body and fully uniformed, the entertain
ing congregation being that of the First
Methodist, and the pastor. Dr. A. C. Hirst
delivered the sermon.
Because of a cold and consequent hoarse
ness be waa obliged to abbreviate hla re
marks somewhat. The question, "What Is
Truth T" asked Jesua by Pilate In the course
of their most memorable meeting furnished
the theme ot the discourse and Dr. Hirst
reiterated, as the answer, that Christ Him
self Is truth personified. The speaker said
that until Jeaus came the philosophers of
the world bad tried In vain to give the
real answer to the great question, but that
since His coming the answer had been
He spoke, too, of the imperishable quality
of the truth so defined, remarking that
Christ lives oh forever as the guide and
strength ot His followers, while mortal
leaders, auch as Wellington and Napoleon,
are appealed to In vain by their nations
in time of distress.
The profusely decorated church was
crowded and the time resigned by the pas
tor was fully occupied by the choir and
congregation In an exceptionally elaborate

CONFESSED BIGAMIST TOO BIG A PERSON
Abandoned Omaha Bride of a Day
but Kot the Groom She
After all, it seems. Christian C. Nelson,
the self-confeesed bigamist under arrest at
St. Joseph, la not the husband of Mrs. Alice
T. Coffey of Omaha. At least, she says
so. and she ought to know, even if she did
live with blm less than twenty-four hours.
On the afternoon of March 20 Mrs. Coffey,
f40 South Twenty-aecond street, read In
an Omaha paper that her truant bride
groom bad run amuck with the police in
the Missouri city, and thst he wss being
held there until his thirteen wives could
get tab on him. She, Mrs; Coffey, the
paper said, was wife No. 13. The alleged
portrait the paper printed of him showed
a supercilious young man with thin hair,
pious nose turning toward heaven, rim
less eyeglasses, a weak chin and a volun
teer blonde mustache. It didn't look much
like her Christian, but then, she wasn't
very well acquainted with Christian, the
time vouchsafed her In which to study
his lineaments having been so brief. Any
how, It would be worth the price of a
ticket to St. Joseph to And out, she thought,
so she bought the ticket.
Heart's Yearnlngr Inrrnariird.
"I hope It la he," she mused, as Chief
Frans went back to the cellroom to produce
the Mormon maverick.
But what chance has wife No. 13 to make
good her claim? Thirteen is an unlucky
The chief marched out a tall, humpbacked,
cadaverous , specimen of a man with a
bilious complexion and popeyes.
'Is this the man you're looking for?"
asked the chief.
Mrs. Coffey looked at him steadfastly, but
couldn't be sure. Then she took a position
at his side and gazed up Into his face. That
was the way she had looked at him while
he was leading her to the altar, and, in
fact, that was the only time she had had
a real good look at him. They had met
for the first time only three hours before
"No, that's not he," waa her comment.
"You're right sure?" aaked the chief.
"He may have shaved off his beard, you
know. One can't be too careful in identi
fying husbands these days."
Kot Enough of Him.
"No, it Isn't that." she sighed. "As I
remember my husband he wss fat weighed
about 220 pounds and he wasn't quite as
tall as I."
"But be might have lost flesh."
"Yes, but be couldn't have grown a head
and a half In a month and a half."
This ended the Interview, and the man
with the comprehensive heart was led back
to his cell. So it will be seen that Mrs.
Coffey has no hold on Nelson not even a
The circumstances of Mrs. Coffey's spec
tacular courtship, marriage and desertion
are still fresh in the public mind, since
these events were compassed as recently
as last January. An advertisement In a
matrimonial Journal was responsible for It
all. McKawn advertised for a wife; she
answered the advertisement, and they be
came engaged. Then one day he came to
Omaha from some town In Ohio to claim his
bride. It was one Friday. That evening
at the Millard hotel they were married
by Rev. Charles W. Savldge. The cere
mony was celebrated under' what seemed
like auspicious conditions, but alast Mrs,
Coffey and her bridegroom didn't Mocha
and Java worth a cent. They weren't to
gether long enough to thoroughly assiint
late. Ho deserted her the next day, tak
ing with him her gold watch and chain
and a diamond sunburst, and absconded to
parts best known to himself.
