SERMONS ABOUT WASHINGTON
Brrerl Ojnaba Preacher! Talk of Lift o
the First President
GIVE MANY REASONS FOR HIS SUCCESS
M. Rom S"7 Control Was
Mont lmportn Elfnmt
la Washington's Great
The elements that combined In Georgo
Washington to make him an almost per
fect man were manured and discussed by
Rev. John M. float at Central Inlted Pres
byterian church Runday morning In his
aermon on "The Making; of Washington."
He placed gTeat emphasis on the self-control
of the first president, and said In part:
"This quality was due largely to the
strong-willed mother who trained Wash
ington aa a boy. It was chiefly by her ef
forts that the lad ws taught the value and
bject of all discipline self-control. When
be gave up a career In the navy, though
passionately fond of the sea, at the plead
ings of his mother, he showed the begin
ning of the self-government that stood him
In good stead during the remainder of his
life. He was able to control and Influence
ethers because be bad complete mastery
"Washington was a man of strong body,
of atrong will and of strong pension, all
of which he learned to govern well befoio
be left the parental roof. It la true that
Waahlngton was not a man learned In
books, but bis education of tbe will and the
beart was almost Ideal. His powers of
Observation were well developed young, and
be learned out of doors what roost men
absorb In libraries and in achoola. In the
things that go to make a man Washington
was well educated.
"Providence always seemed to be es
pecially kind to Washington and he was
protected and shielded from physical
dangers in a way that was almost mar
velous. He seemed to bear a charmed
life, and he could ascribe his good fortune
only to the hand of Ood. A man of atrong
religious nature, as evidenced In his ad
dresses, state papers and orders to bis
army, he was a devout worshiper In the
Episcopal church. He avowee Christianity
in an Infldel ago when our chief friend
was Infldel France.
"These things helped to shape the grand,
herolo figure of the Waahlngton we know.
They are the same Influence that go to
ward shaping any man. The end may not
be as glorious In the eyes of mankind aa
, that achieved by Washington, but the re
sults will be the same In a smaller sphere."
Dr. Tlndall Trlls . of Qualities that
"Lessons From the Life of George Wash
ington" was the theme of Dr. D. K. Tln
dall at Trinity Methodist church. Taking
bis text from tbe words, "But be that Is
tbe greatest among you shall be your serv
ant," he said In part:
"Washington, by doing more for tbe peo
ple of the country than any other mao, be
came the greatest American citizen. He
was well born. When Ood desires a man
for a particular place he begins to prepare
blm a hundred years before he is born, and
ao it was with Washington. He was by
bis birth and environment peculiarly fitted
for tbe position he was to create and main
tain. Ha was In a degree an aristocrat, a
member of the gentry, a cavalier, posses
sing the virtues of that people, and came
from a rank which Inspired confidence, aa
It was a rank which bad produced great
man, both In this country and In England.
I am glad that In this couptry there Is an
opportunity for tbe poor and lowly porn
that a n.an mar leave the shoemakers'
bench and become a aenator; that another
man may lay aside tbe rall-spllttcr's maul
and become president, but I am also glad
that a man possessing money and advan
tages from his youth may receive the high
est honor In the gift of the people, and
such a man was Washington.
"Washington was not onlr a man of great
mental and physical powers, but be was a
man of spirituality, of, splendid attain
ments. . He conquered an Irritable disposi
tion while yet a young mtn, and in doing
ao won the greatest victory of bis life.
When I look upon his picture I seem to
aee a similarity between bis placid face and
what must have been the appearance of the
aea of Galilee after the Saviour had caused
It to be still the greatest peace with
atrong force In Its depths.
"Washington waa not a specialist. He
was not a statesman like Jefferson or Ham
ilton; not an orator like the elder Adams
or Webster; not a philosopher nor a gmius
like Benjamin Franklin, but be was a safe
man a man of rare common sense and
good Judgment, who could bo trusted to do
about the right thing in any place. He
possessed more than any one man those
qualities which the American people con-'
alder typical of the race."
Bl.KS STATIONS UP TUB CROSS,
Foarteen Beaatlful Figure at Church
' of Snered Heart.
At the Sacred Heart church Sunday even
Ing the new stations of the cro were
bleaaed. Father Theobald, O. F. M., offlc!
atlng priest. The new stations are beau
tlful works of art presented to the church
by fourteen families of tbe parUh. Father
Theobald preached tbe sermon, In which
he said that meditation upon the paasion
and death of the Saviour, aa shown In the
stations, will give one a greater love for
hla neighbor aa be contemplates tha sacri
fices of Jesus for all men, and will give
one a greater hatred of sin as he sees tbe
severe penalty exacted by God. The church
was filled with people from all parts ot the
city. The assisting priests were Father
John Jeanett, Father Charles Mugan, Fa

At Immanuel Baptist church Rev, Rob

"February !2; Ita Memories and Lessons."
Despite the generic title Dr. Series drew all
hie thought a and deductions directly from
tbe being of George Waahlngton as a foun
ts luhead, and aaid In part:
"Tbe Influence of thla man over thla
nation from that day to this bas been re
markable. Hla name alone, bis mere face,
la possessed of a vast power over us all,
from tbe children up. In thla way the

tion Is made by the past heroes It looks
back to. No other country la the world
has In Its past sue1! a man as Washing
ton. All the leaders pale in comparison.
Think what a grand Influence It la for our
boys when they look at that calm, large,
strong face, sweet and beautiful. They can
not do better than to take the father of
their country for a model.
"Washington was the savior of bis coun
try, peculiarly fitted by birth, by education
and by natural Inherent ability to accom
plish what he did. But there Is One
greater. He who loved us and gave His
life to save us. By the love and rever

A meeting of the Railway Clerks' union
was held at Labor Temple yesterday aft

were enrolled on the list of members. This
union Is holding Its sessions quietly at
present. It being tbe desire of the local
and national officers to secure as large a
membership as possible before any demon
stration Is made by the union. In regard
to the reported discharge of persons be
cause of membership in the union the In
terested pa-tles would say nothing, all
questions being answered by the statement
that the headquarters of the national union
had been informed of tbe Omaha sl'.uatlon
and that pending a report from tbe national
local officers and members would eay noth-
ng for publication. For the same reason
the names of the officers elected would not
be made public.

ers. When the latter union applied for

team driver, no matter how many teams he
may own and that they are as much en
titled to representation In 'he Central
Labor onion aa the team drivers.
DOCTOR STONE ON CREMATION
gays He Believes Living? Suffer
Harm Because of Earth I
At the regular meeting of the Philo
sophical society Sunday afternoon Robert M.
Stone, A. M., M. D., read by special re
quest a paper on "Cremation," wnlca ne
presented to tbe section on state medicine
at the fifteenth annual meeting of tbe
American Medican association, held at Col
umbus, O., June 8-9, 1899.
The paper waa a complete exposition of
the subject, treating It from all its sides,
telling of tbe history of cremation and of
Ita advantages, rehearsing the objections to
It, Including the sentimental, and detail
ing lta performance and the good it ac
complishes. It treated of the problems
of whether It waa best to bury the dead.
whether the living suffer barm because of
earth burial, whether there waa any good
reason for a custom so long and unlver
sally established and whether there were
any good reasons why some other method
should be adopted, denying the first, affirm
ing the second, denying the third and af
firming the last. Regarding the sentimental
feature. Dr. Stone said:
"I am firmly convinced that this substi
tution of sentiment, from tbe grave to the
urn, thla recognition that the urn with its
ashes renders Its home tacred, will sooner
or later be accepted and will reeult in the
transfer of our holy regard from tbe grave
to tbe urn, also, beautified with constantly
changed flowers, and result In the adoption
of cremation by thinking, cultured people
ot all communities."

LENTEN PASTORAL LETTER
Bishop So nnell Addresses People of Catholic
Church on Their Duties.
DISCUSSES PRESENT SOCIAL CONDITIONS
Rrarrrta that o Many Persons Are
Relying Altogether on lntelleetnal
t'nltnre to Make Human
In the Catholic churches of the diocese
of Omaha Sunday morning at each eervice
was read the Lenten pastoral letter of
Bishop Scannell, In which the bishop dwells
at length upon the observance of Sunday
and holy days of obligation, the sacrament
of matrimony and social progress.
On the first subject he says in part:
The aesietlng at mass on the days ap
pointed Is for Catholics a public profession
of faith. Kvery outward act of religion is
Indeed a profesfion of faith, but many acts
of religion need have no witnesses, and
some of them bind only at considerable
Intervals of time; whereas assleting at
Diana Is always a public act and It la of
obligation at least once a week. In truth.
It Is the one act that notably distinguishes
Catnollcs from non-Catholics. To say of
a man that he never misses mass does not
Indeed mean everything, but It means a
great deal, for It means this much, that he
makes public profession of his faith. On
the other hand, to say of a man that he
Is careless about hearing mass Is to say
that he attaches little Importance to re
ligion; while to say of him that he no
longer goes to mass means In the public
mind that he Is no longer a Catholic.
Only weighty reasons, therefore, will ex
cuse from an obligation that Is so grave
in the sight of Ood and that means so
much In the eyes of men.
Sacrament of Matrimony.
On the second subject be says in part:
I beg to call your attention to the great
Importance of observing all the laws which
regard the sacrament of matrimony. These
laws have for their Immediate purpose the
safeguarding the sanctity of Christian
marriage, and the unity and stability of
the Christian family. The family Is the
foundation of civil society and they who
Ignore the sanctity of the marriage rela
tion, or deny the stability of the marriage
bond, strike at the very foundation of
society Itself. We live at a time when
very lax views prevail regarding the na
ture of the marriage contract and the ob
ligations which It creates, while the prac
tice of many persons Is still worse even
than their views.
The laws of the church In the matter of
marriage were made both for the good of
society and for the good ot the individual,
and they should be faithfully observed. It
Is true that the church can, like any other
lawmaking authority, dispense from her
own laws; but her children should not ask
her to do so, except In very rare and ex
ceptional cases and for the very gravest
reasons. Marriages between Catholics and
non-Catholics, marriages between relative
whether they be related by blood or by
a former marriage and other marriages
which It Is not neceasary to mention here,
are forbidden by the church. All good
Catholics will, aa a general rule, avoid
such marriages; they will not even dis
cuss with themselves the possibility of
such a marriage in their own case, I need
not remind you that, while the church can
dispense from her own laws, she cannot
dispense from the divine law. She cannot,
therefore, break the bond of a perfect
Christian marriage, which the divine law
declares to be Indissoluble.
On Intellectual Cnltore.
Or) the subject of socialism and social
conditions be says. In part:
It has always been the professed aim of
statesmen, philanthropists and educators to
make men good, so that they may be law
abiding and happy.
It Is much to ba regretted, however, that
so many persons are now relying alto
gether on Intellectual culture for thla pur
pose. They advocate intellectual culture as
an Infallible means, and the on'.y means,
of making people good and happy. In
deed, it may be said that this advocacy
has assumed In our day the character of a
craze, and therefore, we need not be sur
prised to find that it is doing mora harm
than good to a good cause.
The morality of the poor la usually of a
higher order than that of the rich. In
tellectual culture, leading to religious scep
ticism and wealth, leading to high living
and to an Impatience of moral restraint,
makes 'difficult for men and women to be
simple and obedient and faithful In the
alght of Ood. Scepticism and unbelief al
ways take their rise among the cultured
classes and gradually find their way down
among the people who are prone to imitate
those above them. And as the people care
nothing for that conventional decorum,
which constitutes the respectability of the
cultured classes, they follow nut . their
. DrlnclDlea to their lOKlcal conclusions. They
are now doing tbia in many countries, where
socialistic movements menace tne estab
lished orler of thlnars. And It Is a sig
nificant fact that these movements have for
one of their chief alms tne destruction or
those very upper claasea whose teaching
and example nave teen main.iv instrumental
In producing the movements In question.
Mission of the Church.
Tha church ha been condemned by some
because it does not consider It Its primary
duty to point out to men the way that
leads to amuence ana woriaiy success, it
is not the mission of the cnurch to form
business men. but to form good men, and
that a good man is of more value In the
eyes of Ood than all the rich m?n that
have ever lived, who were not good. And
a second answer to the charite Is that mod
erh progress Is not all progress, for If it
were the congress of the United States
and the legislatures of many of the states
would not now be aeeklng to destroy by
legislation some of Its most salient leatures,
on the ground mat tney are injurious to me
best Interest ot manaina. Alter an, rest
assured that no one will ever De an e to
find a better way of making men contented
and happy than by teaching them to "seek
first the kingdom of Ood and His Justice.

GOVERNOR MICEEY TO MEN
State's Chief Executive Addresses a Largs
Audience at Kountze Church.
CHRISTIAN CITIZENSHIP IS HIS TOPIC
Says There Is Mistaken Idea la the
Minds of Many that Liberty
and License Are the
Kountze Memorial church bad no vacant
seats to offer yesterday afternoon when
Governor Mickey spoke on "Christian Cit
izenship," at a patriotic meeting under the
auspices of tf Young Men's Christian as
sociation. The governor's address partook
largely of the nature of a patriotic ser
mon, held the audience, which waa com
posed exclusively of men, at close atten
tion and several times was Interrupted by
applause. It was preceded by a song and
prayer service. Special Invitations had been
issued to Grand Army men and members
of the Union Veteians' union, Millard and
Thurston Rifles, Omaha Guards and tbe
Loyal Legion, and each was well repre
sented. The old soldiers, however, made
the better showing.
After the benediction had been pro
nounced Governor Mickey stood at the
chancel rail and clasped hands with 200
men, Including Mayor Moores and many
ether well known citizens.
Speaks with Feel In a:.
There were times during the address when
the governor appeared to be much affected.
Particularly was this true when he was
describing that the highest service a man
can render to his brothers Is to be their
servant, and declared that the only way
a man In public office could do what was
right Is to try with all his might to gel
close to God, and to seek spiritual guld
ance with all earnestness. The voice ot
the speaker grew husky, and after he had
diverted the seriousness of his worla by
a well-turned bit of humor, many of the
I oiq soldiers covertly reached for their
handkerchiefs to dry their eyes. In part
the governor said:
"These are days which forcefully remind
us of patriotism and of the sacrifices which
have been made in securing and perpet
uating civil liberty In this nation of ours.
During the past four weeks we have ob
served the birthdays of Lincoln and Mc
Kinlcy and today our thoughts turn to
ward the Father of his Country and we
seek to gain some lessons from a life which
Is a conspicuous example of the loftiest
patriotism and whose most enduring monu
ment is the esteem and reverence existing
In the hearts of a liberty loving people.
"It was the Rev. Joseph Cook who said,
In 18S4: 'We will never have an Ideal re
public until every active citizen Is an ac
tive Christian and every active Christian la
an active citizen.' I believe that this prin
ciple is true. Every citizen should be a
man; should love God, and should try to
make this republic what God would have
It and not what the politicians would
"Patriotism Is love for country and devo
tion to Its institutions and principles. In
earthly affairs it Is considered one of the
highest traits of character. We strive to
inculcate It In our children and we cher
ish the memory of those who possessed H
In a marked degree. But there Is another
country toward which we are all fast has

become accepted citizens. In fact, the

Demand Spiritual Patriotism.
"This beavenly country demands of'us a
spiritual patriotism, the counterpart of
earthly patriotism. It would be of a
more Intense and consuming character even
as the Interests at stake are correspond
ingly more Important. This patriotism la
manifested by knowing and doing the will
of our Father, which la in heaven.
"There Is a mistaken Idea In the minds
of many that liberty and license are one
and the same thing that under the pretext
of personal liberty one may be Justified
in giving free rein to bis baser passions.
On this assumption is predicated the argu
ment in favor of the saloon, the open Sab
bath and all other forms of Iniquity. It la
simply a case where liberty la mistaken
for license. The only person who can en
Joy perfect liberty la the child ot God.
The true child of Ood has no desire to
do things which are Inconsistent with
Christ's teachings and hence hie liberty
of action la perfect and complete."
Where there used to be a feeling of un
easiness and wonry In tbe household when
a child showed symptoms of croup, there
la now perfect confidence. This Is owing to
the uniform success of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy in the treatment of that
disease. Mrs. M. I. Basford of Poolesvllle,
Md., in speaking of her experience in the
use of that remedy, says: "I have a world
of confidence In Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy, for I have used it with perfect
success. My child Garland is subject to
severe attacks of cfoup and It always gives
him prompt relief."
Tonight the long-looked-for and much-talked-of
entertainment and masquerade
ball of tbe Omaha Lodge of Elka will oc

public social event ever given In the den.

ples. Tbe jubilee singers will be there to
serenade everybody, and tbe children dan
cers will also give an exhibition. An or

sio for the dances and promenadea.
