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

Congregational church yesterday morning.

the Joys set before them endured tbv cross,
despising the shame."
'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.' "
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.

Rev. 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. Are we not go
ing to strike a blew at this evil?
'Let us do radical work work wltj the
Individual and aee these things drop off,
believe In tho taxation Of this evil; taxa
tion until they are driven out of business.
Is there not aome one under the power of
depraved appetite to whom you can ap
peal? Oo to him aa a brother, not as a re
former. A reformer looka with cold eye
upon the victim of evil, while the brother
looka with an eye of love and sympathy,
He goea down to the poor drunkard and
elevatca him. You can eradicate this
plague, but not by lawa. You must get
down aide by side with the victim. Let
ua be up and doing In this matter."

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

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
"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
"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
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.
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

Next Tuesday week "The ' Prince of
Pilsen" will open at Boyd'a for an engage
ment of three performances. The announce
ment that Henry W. Savage Is the sponsor
of the new opera is a sufficient guarantee
that It Is of a high class, for Mr. Savage
has n -ver presented any attraction to the
play-going public that has been a (allure.
It was uudor his dlrectiuu that "Tbe Sultan
of Sulu." "King Dodo" and the Castle
Square Grand Opera company achieved such
distinct success. As lu the cane of tha
other operas directed by ' Mr. Savage, no
expense has been spared in securing tbe

embellishments are gorgi-nus.
