BECOMES SECRETARY LUTHERAN LEAGUE After Fifteen Turi (ontlmom er Ire lie I,eavea Charge Here Free f Debt to Take t'p More Important Work, After a pastorate which had been con tinuous for fiftem year. Rev. Luther M. Kuhna of Grace Lutheran church announced with deep regret to his congregation Sun day morning his Intention of leaving Omaha to accept a new and Important work which had been thrust upon him. Rev. Kuhns was recently elected general secre tary of the Lutheran League of America, which be was partially Instrumental In founding und with which he has been closely Identified as a member of the executive committee, and felt It his duty to accept. In resigning his pastorate Mr. Kuhns tated that he expected to leave for New York by January 30 to assume the duties of his new position and that his quarters would be In that city. His field will be from ocean to ocean. He will have the honor of delivering addresses at large con tentions which will be held In New York, Philadelphia and Boston during the. next few weeks. His letter of resignation was given to the council of the church and will be acted upon at the annual meeting next Sunday. Much regret was expressed by the mem bers of the congregation In the loss of the beloved pastor, whose work haa been un ceasing and with excellent success, aa through hla efforts the present edifice, free from all debt or obligations, haa grown from a mere mission. .Aa a fitting discourse the pastor preached upon the subject, "The New Year's Mes aage," In which he admonished hla congre gation and members of the church to live la the future and not the past; not to be come Christian fossils, but active workers; so that their Uvea shall not have been la rain. answer It. We must work aa Christ worked and show by our Uvea In a measure aa He showed that there la no other way to be manly." OWKH TO TAKK l.OSO VIKWS. Iter.

'J?eus found a sustaining power In Hla vision of events to come." be said. "He took long views of life. We need to catch Hla spirit. On this first Babbath of the new year let us consider bow wa, too, may take "long views.' We have the power to do it. It Is quite true that we cannot read the future. It Is a sealed book. And yet. In another view of the ase, we are able to say what life wilt be, given certain conditions. And these conditions rest with us. . "There are two sources from which light streams upon the shadowed future. One Is human experience. It would be strange after all these ages if humanity had gotten no clue to the course of human ltfe. If it haa learned nothing else It haa at least learned the law of the harvest. Fruit Is seen to follow seed and to follow like In kind. Evil begets evil and evil begets sor row. This one fact la full of prophesy for your life and mine. The other source la the revelation of Ood in Chrlat. There the will of Ood, the plana of Ood and the hope Ood haa for us are written In light. He who believes In the revelation knowa what his career will be If he puta himself In the line of Ood'a thought for him; So to him who drifts blindly on we say. You need not. You have the power to take long vlewa of life.' To him who declares himself an agnostic we say, 'It la of your own choosing. You have needful light to take long views.' " HEW RESOIATIOXS HIS 91BJECT. Dr. Mann "aye They Indicate Con arlonaness of Imperfection. Having In the earlier part of the serv ice read Longfellow'a poem. "The Two Rivera," Rev. Newton M. Mann preached upon the subject of new resolutions, choos ing hie text from the Revelation of St. John: "And another book was opened, which Is the book of life. I am the alpha and omega the beginning and the ending, aalth the Lord, which is and which was and which Is to come." To put the book of Revelation before his hearers In the true light Dr. Mann re called the conditions which Inspired It, staling that that portion of the east out of which the book came was convulsed at the time by a concurrence of most dis tressing events earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and destruction of cities by the Romana, which the people of that day In their state of enlightenment could only ex plain on the theory that the end of all thlnga earthly was at hand. Tbey, In their belief that the world was then some 4,000 yeara old, considered It to be very old, and In their expectation of a quickly coming Chrlat looked upon the events of those times aa unmistakably foretelling the end of the world. . In thla enlightened' age of 1,800 years later men's Ideas of the span of the be ginning and end of the world had been ex tended and It had been accepted that the day of Judgment would not be deferred until the end of time. He presented the thought that if each day in Itself la not a day of. Judgment there must be In the cycle of each one'a life certain periods which fulfill that purpose. A year, ho said, la the period occupied by the earth complet ing the circle of Ita orbit around the sun, and a year must be an Important epoch In the life of any person, aa It la not given to many of ua to make the Journey more than fifty tlmea. Dr. Mann counseled his hearers not to look lightly upon the resolution of the new' year even though they are all too often broken and disregarded for at least they Indicate a consciousness of Imperfec tion and a disposition to strive for some thing better. He commended resolutions to form new habits and overcome old ones that had been recognized aa undesirable and to more completely perform one'a duty. He suggested a resolution to attend church with the aame regularity and punc tuality aa business, and expressed regret that such exhortations should usually oc cur at tlmea when those whom It la par ' tlcularly desired to reach are abaent.

Ecclea Wants to Eradicate the Liquor Evil. At Immanuel Baptist church Rer. Rob ert Kerr Ecclea preached, taking aa hla theme the new year and hla text Oeneaia xxiv., 21. He said In part: "The messenger of Abraham came to the home of Rachel and was welcome aa the blessed of the Lord. So should we greet the new year, aa each of the '365 daya which will come with It have been given by the Lord, and will carry with them Hla especial blessing to all true believers. The messenger came to carry back with him tbe greatest gift of the household, the fair and lovely daughter, and so should we each day be prepared to return to the Lord some gift, some sacrifice. Let ua give to the Lord our best. There la much that we can do. Take the newspapers of the city today and we find whole pages devoted to the work of hell and damnation In the advertisements of applications of persons who operate houses jwhere the downfall of men are accomplished.

ALL READY FOR CATTLEMEN Kansas City Has Made Great Prepara, tlons for Their Enter talament. ABOUT RELIGIOIS SELFISHNESS Dr. Loner Says "Don't Re Thlnklaa; of Eternal Mansions.' Dr. M. DeWltt Long preached at the Knox Presbyterian church yesterday morn ing, from the text, "And he that reapeth recelveth wages." Dr. Long pointed out that tbe wages were the only thing that Incited many Christiana to effort. "There la perhaps no selfishness," said he, "In All the world like religious selfishness. The Christian la heard to aay, 'What a glorious thing la thla aavlng of the aoul; how mag alfloent It will be to have a mansion in the sky; I want thoae thlnga for myself. To. have thoae thlnga la what I will live for. Thoae are the objecta for which I will aim.' The man who Uvea hla life to be prepared to die la not prepared to live. Don't be thinking constantly about eternal laanslons. "Why Is a man made? Why la a man ijvtDg! What la hla purpose? Or, to better reach the answer, take the highest type of man. Ask why was Christ here? That He might secure a aeat In the eternal man sions? That He might live a life above reproach? You aay no! Those things are all desirable enough, but they are not the object of life. Living a life of aimple service, and of glad service to the world. That la lite. "The majority of people are mistaken aa to what life la as to what religion Is. People outside of the church are asking loe, 'Can the Christian religion with all ita high pretensions do for man what they eel have done? They have a right to ask that of any and of every Christian.

The local com mltteea having In charge the entertain ment of the National Livestock conven tlon, which meets here on the 13th, have announced that everything la' In readiness for the big meeting. The leading hotela have already booked reservations for something over 1,000 dele gates and visitors, but accommodatlona are ample, so there will be no difficulty In se curing rooms. Information bureaua will be established at the Midland and Coatea house, from where visitors can be directed to hotels, boarding houses or any place they desire to visit. The business of the convention, which will be held in the Century, theate.-, will he of vital Importance to those engaged in the Industry. Speaking of this meeting to day, the secretary said: "The officers of the association hope that the delegates are coming here aolely to at tend to business during the dsy and will forego all amuaement until evening. We will earnestly request them to attend every session of the contention, being In their seata promptly at 9:30 a. m. and remaining until evening adjournment." Tho entertalnmenta provided for by the various committees surpass anything of the kind ever given the association. They will all be held in Convention hall. Thla will be handsomely decorated and all features of tho program hae been arranged for the pedal entertainment of the vlsltora. At the grand ball on Wednesday night It is expected that the grand march will be led by Governor A. B. Cummins of Iowa; Governor A. M. Dockery, Missouri; Gov ernor Richard Yates, Illinois; ex-Oovernor E. P. Savage, Nebraska; Governor J. W. Bailey and ex-Governor W. E. 8tanley, Kansas, and Hon. C. H. Groavenor, con gressman from Ohio. In addition to the social functions and bualness of the association there will be aeveral aales of pure-bred atock during the week. Several of these are from the finest herds In the country. On Saturday following the adjournment of the National association the annual meeting of the National Wool Growers' as sociation will be held in the Century the ater. Senator Francis E.

An unusually large number of the mem bers of the Philosophical society were present at tbe regular meeting yesterday afternoon at 2:30 in parlor B of the Paxton hotel. The speaker of the afternoon was Edward Rosewater, who delivered an ad- dresa on the aubject of "Electricity aa a Vital Force." He aald: 'About three years ago I called upon Thomaa Edison at hla laboratory In South Orange and found him at work In experi menting upon a new storage battery which he haa since perfected. Iij the courae of our conversation I asked the great elec trician, 'What Is electricity?' To this question the wliard of Menlo park re sponded: 'Ytu know aa much about It aa 1 do.' That Is not literally true. I am sure Edison has forgotten more about elec tricity than ever I can possibly hope to learn, but for all that hla answer wsa sug gestive and significant. What Edison doubtless intended to say waa that with all our marvelous progress In electrical acl ence we have not been able to determine the constituent elements of electricity. All we know about electricity Is that It is one of the correlative forma of en ergy. In fact, scientific tests have demon strated that heat, light, electricity and magnetism are Interconvertible. Light Is convertible into heat, heat Into electricity and electricity into magnetism, and either of these forms of energy can again be con verted Into each other. All of these forms of force In reality are eymptoma of motion In matter. That brings us to several fun damental truths: "Flret That all matter la Indestructible and all change of form In matter la pro duced through energy. "Second That energy Is as Indestructi ble aa matter and energy permeates all matter under all conditions. That energy cannot be separate from matter la a truth that la being demonstrated every hour of the day. Take, for example, the form of energy known as heat and you will find that no known substance la without aome heat at any stage. Liquid air, reduced by thermometrical measurement to 400 de grees below xero, still retains an Infini tesimal quantity of heat and consequently of energy. Matter, whether In a gaseous, liquid or solid state, being permeated with energy In some form and energy never be ing at rest, It follows as a sequence that all matter la in constant motion. Only a. Symptom of Motion. "Another fundamental truth that under llea electricity aa a vital force la that en ergy is only an expression or symptom of motion, and all energy and matter being Inseparable, It follows that all matter la In constant motion and change la the uni versal law. The basalt rocka that under lie giant mountains have boen presumed to be absolutely stable, but experimenta and experience have demonstrated that they are in constant motion. Every atom of their granite masses Is changing placea with other atoms, and that change, Im perceptible to us during the courae of myr iads of yeara, la one of the aourcea of phys ical evolution of thla globe. "The most potential form of energy, aa manifested through visible motion In com bination with crganio matter, constitutes what la called life and Ita abstraction from tbe living tody la called death. But there is no death; there la constant and eternal change. "Astronomical science teachea ua that the earth la a planet; tbe aolar system and myriads of systems In the constellations of the heavena rotate In Infinite apace through the eternal procession of the cen turies. New worlds ar being born and old worlds are dying, or rather changing. From the collisions of meteoric matter and from the impact of larger cold and dead world masses, derelicts In the ocean of space, nebulae are forming and In the process of evolution become suns or planets "No part of the cosmos is stable, but the law of conservation of energy and In destructibility of matter proves the per sistence of the universal substance. Men, planeta, suns and stars live their time an paas to other, forms, but the universe Is an Indestructible substance and - perpetual motion contlnuea without decline. The sue cession Is complete. New suns and worlds take the place of the old and any day -la aa much a day of creation aa any other. An Electrical Reservoir. "The earth la a reservoir of electric and magnetlo energy, generated by Ita diurnal revolution around its axis, while gravita tion represents the force that propela the earth within Ita planetary orbit around the aun. In Ita dally rotation on ita axla within an atmospheric envelope the earth ia simply a colloaal dynamo 8,000 miles In diameter. In which the polea sustain the relation of a magnetic cylinder. The atmosphere that surrounds the earth la sat urated with gases and vapors. The terrific speed of tho terrestrial dynamo, rotating within thla atmosphere, generates the elec tricity concentrated In the terrestrial globe, and the friction of the earth with the vapors, or clouds, that surround It gen erates the lightning and atmospheric elec tric phenomenon, which repeat themaelvea from day to day ar.d year to year. "These views relative to the earth's function aa the reservoir of terreatrlal elec tricity have aa yet not been concurred In by a majority of aclentlstr. They are, how ever, conclusions that have Impressed them selves upon me after many yeara of ex perlence In tbe domain of telegraphy. Forty years ago telegraphera and electrical scien tists generally held the belief that the earth waa the conductor, or medium, for conduct ing the return circuit from the end of the battery attached to a telegraph Una to tbe battery attached at Ita terminus. "In other words, the ground-wire con nected with the electric generating battery at Omaha would carry the current of dec trlclty Into the earth, and that current passing through the earth would reach tha battery at Chicago by way of the ground wire In tho Chicago office, making a com plete circuit between Omaha and Chicago. Rejecting a Theory. "Thla theory I rejected within a few montha after I had become a practical tel egrapher. I could not make myself believe that the current generated from our bat tery and passing down tbe ground-wire Into the earth wss endowed with an intel ligence and precision of Impulse that would lesd It straight on to Chicago, St. Louis or Denver and find Ita way under streets to the particular building where the telegraph office waa located, and then climb up through the ground-wire Into the battery in the frurtb atory without coming In con flict with any other current that wss trav ellng In the same direction. "As a matter of fact, ground-wires of commercial offices In all large cities con nect anywhare from five to 100 wires, and all thse currents psss down the one wire Into the earth and then are presumed to subdivide and strike out Into tha various airections, enner norta, soutn. east or west, through the earth and land at tha eaact spot where eonaecllon Is made through underground wire with tbe respec tive battery. "Thla theory, ao repugnant to common sense, I rejected and formed the conclusion that the earth was aimply a great reservoir of electricity Into which the various cur rents generated by chemical batterlea were passing and out of which an equivalent wai returned at tbe other end, balancing the general quantity of electric energy within the reaervolr. In other words, when the qusntlty of electric energy forced Its wsy by a ground-wire Into the earth an equiv alent forced Its way up out of the earth at the point where the circuit was completed. "Having become convinced that the earth waa a reservoir of electricity, my next de duction waa that a constant supply of en ergy muat be generated from some source, and that aource, in my Judgment, Is to be found In the propulsion of the esith around Its own axla, which, aa we know, must gen erate a vatt amount of electrlo energy, and that energy being part of the earth, la ab aorbed by the earth. Aa a Motive Power. "The general public haa not kept track of the wonderful progress that haa been made In the application of electricity as a motive power. The most stupendous power plant waa Installed last year by the Man hattan Elevated Railway company In New York. At the time of Ita completion it waa the largest power plant In the world and had the largest engines ever built. It has sixty-four boilers of 600-horse power each. There are eight enginea of 8,000 rated horse power each and 12,600-horso power maximum. This makes the plant 100,000-horse power. The high pressure cylinders are forty-four inches In dlamet?r, and the low pressure eighty-eight Inches. The foundation plate for the alternator is cast In a solid piece, ten feet three Inches by forty-three feet, while the alternator cast steel hub weighs twenty-five tons In one piece. The alternator complete weighs 445H tons. The application of electricity as a motive power for the New Tork Ele vated railway baa materially Improved the rapid transit, as compared with steam power. "The application of electricity to the operation of great railroad systems has also made rapid strides during the last twelve montha. It has grown beyond the suburban railroad? and Is no longer a doubtful experiment. "On New Year's day Edison gave out, among other statements: 'We are only In the Infancy of electricity. Ita possibilities no man can dream no more than a man fifty yeara ago could have foretold what we have today. Little dlacoveriea like the Roentgen and the Becquerel raya will lead to great things. What, cannot be told Just now.' Experiments Of Scotchman. Aa far back as 1844 James Bowman Lindsay, a Scotchman, projected wireless telegraphy and made aome experiments over moderate dlstancea, but hla experi menta were cut ahort by hla death. The biographer of Lindsay haa delivered a lea ture on theae early experimenta on wire lesa telegraphy and haa exhibited hla ap paratua and diagrams. The Scotch Inventor transmitted signala from Portsmouth across the Tar." At the conclusion of the address Mr. Rosewater answered a number of ques tions put by members of the society. Y. M. C. A. WORK FOR THE YEAR Twelve Million Dollars Raised and Expended In Ita Work Last Year. NEW YORK, Jan. 4. Twelve million dol lara represents In round figures tho amount shown on the records of the American Young Men's ' Christian associations, as ex pended and available in 1902 for its work, for the payment of bonded debta, for en dowment and tor the erection of new build inga. Thla aum includes In Instances the culminating work of two and three years. The membership list, with lapsed names eliminated, haa overtopped 300,000, and the number of associations exceeds 1,600. There haa been steady progress In num. bers, in efficiency and In service, but espe daily notable and significant is the com prehensive study of association problems and the apprehension of the needs of young men and the adaptation of the association to meet them. A movement for the 4,000,000 men engaged In manufacturing pursuits, which will reach skilled mechanics, turn bermen, miners, cotton mill operatives, etc., bas taken shape and will be devel oped under the International commlttee'a guidance. Street railway associations, sua talned by the traction companies at Brook lyn and Rochester, Inaugurated that new movement. The railroad association mem bershlp exceeds 60,000; student department, 40,000; boys' department, 50,000, and the army and navy, colored and Indian asso ciations show tncreasea. Nearly 30,000 young men are In the evening schools Working boya between 12 and 18 are drawn In large numbers Into the evening classes and given education aa well aa evening recreation. The 200 summer camps en listed fully 6,000 boys. The first permanent building for the Naval association, costing $450,000, baa .been opened and Is already crowded to Ita utmost limits. This has been followed by associations at Norfolk and Newport. , With the aanctlon of con gress, two new buildings are being erected for soldiers at army posts. Quarters are set apart at seventy-one army posts for soldiers' associations, with the approval of commanding officers, and work Is done on many battleships. The way haa been found to organize and help young men In Isolated country placea by county associations. The missionary spirit characterlzea tha move ment. Glfta for foreign work have Increased from $55,000 to $80,000. and twelve of the best secretaries have been sent out to for eign landa during the year, and association work has been extended to Mexico. Growth haa been most notable In the associations of the south, of the northwest and among railroad men. There are now 450 buildings owned, costing over 124,000.000; 1,700 paid officer on the list; the International com mittee has secured Ita first $1,000,000 of endowment, and the atate committees have made good progress In the same direction. There baa never been so deep an Interest and so large en attendance In Bible classes and religious services as In the last year; 78,000 men a Sunday for nine months are in evangelistic meetings, snd 43,000 men attend the- Bible classes. Tbe number of associations throughout the world la 7.:'07, with 620,721 members, owning snd occupy ing 737 buildings, valued at over $32,0O0,Ov0. Kew Kqnlpmeut for Grand Ialanal. 8T.
