SHOOTING BIRDS A BAD EXAMPLE

I of Rellalone Instruction
In his discourse at t'nlty church yr,tor-
I day morning, Rev. Neton M. Mann took
j occasion to refer, In deprecatory manner,
1 to the experiences of a loeal Kpls opnl
1 minister, who was arrested neir The Iford,
' Neb., recently for shooting meadow Ijrks.
I Rev. Mann said:
"The church has not always been the
( tame thing In lta Ideas and constitution;
1 consequently It has not always had the
j lima purposes. I am asked to Inquire
t what Its purposes were In other days, as
i a preliminary to the more practical con-
1 ((deration of the mission of the church In
j eur own time. I am not sure but that a
dead past mlnht better be left to Its In
evitable task of burying Itself; at all events
we must not expect this Inquiry to furnish
dark background against which to set
forth our own better enlightenment, our
higher alma, our more brilliant successes.
"Man haa always been man and espe
cially atable haa been his religious nature.
'Trobably every theological vagary, every
Superstitious motive that ever controlled a
mortal may be found active and dominant
In the minds and hearts of living people.
The present Is In a hand-to-band struggle
, with the past.
V "By a reversion to conceptions which
'' have at least a atandlng In the gospel, an
' Increasing number are stoutly contending
! that the mission of the church la to cure
. the sick; others are preaching as earnestly
j as did Paul himself. Justification by faith
j In the efficacy of atoning blood; others
j again are repeating a far echo of the pbilo
; aophlc mysticism by which Jesus was ex
I Sited to the godhead.
i "Still the old delusion of the guilt cf
I error la hugged to the pious breast, and
I to multitudes the great goal to be attained
Is uniformity of belief and of worship, an
end which they blindly hope to further by
ystematlo dlsfellowshlp of all noncon
formists. Through Insistence upon one
and another of these antiquated fallacies
the sorry spectacle Is kept up of a piety
which has no necessary affiliation with
morality a service of God without obliga
tion of kindness to his creatures.
"What more melancholy illustration of
this than a prominent Omaha minister's
own atory of administering sacraments and
christening babies out In the middle of
the state the other day, amusing himself
on the way back, by shooting song birds,
bringing Into town aa trophies twenty-two
slaughtered meadow larks a proceeding
In which, even after being arrested and
fined $110, he Is unable to see any Impro
priety, and only regrets the personal In
convenience to which be was subject.
"What must the children whom we have
taught In the public schools to say:
" 'He prayeth well who loveth well.
' Both, man and bird and beast.'
"Think of a Christian like that!
These are of the things which show how
the ahadows of the dark ages reach far
down Into the present and fall among us
without much disturbing our equanimity.
We owe a great 'deal to the past, but a
part of Its legacy, and a most peralstent
part, la hideous. Our first duty la to put
this part under our feet."

At Kountie Memorial church Sunday
morning Rev. A. J. Rudtslll of Mount Car
mel, Pa., preached the sermon. Mr. Rudl
III will be with the Omaha congregation
two weeks, concluding his service next Sun
day. His text Sunday morning was taken
from Exodus, 31:24, "And Moses wist not
that his face shone," the theme being "Tbe
Power of Silent Influence."
The speaker aaid that some trees cast
a shadow which Is deadly to all other
forms of vegetation, tbe grasB and brush
dying where lta shade falls, while under
other trees of apparently the same depth
of shade the vegetation will be luxuriant
and thla finds analogy In the life of men,
aome bringing gloom with their presence
and others seeming to radiate sunlight and
Joy. "Twas thus with Moses when, after
forty daya and forty nlghta In the moun
tain, where he had seen tbe Lord face to
face, he returned to his people to find them
turned away from God In Idolatry. His
Influence caused them to return, and when
Ood again called him away to the mountain
to stay for forty days and forty nights
again, to ahow the people that tbey must
be true to Ood after Moses had finally left
them, they again fell away and worshiped
the serpent. But they were brought again
to the true faith through Mosea.
" 'Moses wist not that his face ahone
and this shows to us that the power of
silent Influence Is unconscious Influence"
aid the speaker. "When the Apostle Peter
walked the streets of Jerusalem the peo
pie placed the sick, the lame and tbe blind
where hla shadow would fall upon thorn
and they were cured by the unconscious
Influence of this man of God. The life of
the humblest Christian by his example will
bring men to the church and these humble
Christiana may never know of the fact
The silent Influence of parents upon chil
dren Is what controls their lives. The
parent may deceive the public as to his
real character, but he will never deceive
the child, for It la hla unconscious actlonr
and hla Influence In unconscious moments
which moulds the future life of the child
and makes him what he Is. There Is a
time when a smile may be a sin and i
time when a amlle may aave a soul. After
all. It la not what a man says that gives
him influence, but what he la and what he

Rev. L. St. Stellck entered upon his new
pastorate at Oraie Luihersn ihtirrh. No.
1325 South Twenty-sixth street, yesterday
morning. Ho took for his text Trowrbs
x, 31, and Daniel xil. 3: "He that win
neth noiils shall thrive, and they that
turneth may souls to righteousness shall
l:ev. Slellrk said In part: "The world
says he that winneth health Is wise and
that he can buy worldly honor and house.
And some verily believe ;hat snlva'ion
can be bought. The" world says that they
who can win the minds and affections
of their fellow men shall thrive and shine
In society and statesmanship. The mind
that wrote the Proverbs was not that of a
fanatic. The words of Solomon written
then are the foundations of wisdom to this
day. He was a business man and gained
great wealth. Daniel was the chief ex
ponent of wisdom In the Babylonian courts
In the day when Babylon ruled the .world.
The value of the soul Is found In Its pur
chasing price. The value of an article Is
based upon what people will pay for It.
Ho who made the soul knew Its value.
He was anxious for Its redemption by His
own blood. Should a cruel foe take away
your child, what would you be willing to
pay for its return? The value of the soul
Is found In the preparation that God has
made for It In heaven. Whenever we tnrn
our eyes toward heaven and see the glories
of the clouds and the stars and the firma
ment, we are looking at only the bottom
of the Poor on high. God gave us this
beautiful earth for iho entertainment and
delight of our bodies. What must be the
beauties of heaven, that He haa prepared for
the entertainment, of the soul? The value
of the soul Is what It can suffer or enjoy
by being mortal. The body and soul have
diverse Interests; ono Is for that which Is
earthly and the other for that which Is
"The soul Is like the caged bird. It
ongs for the freedom or me oounoiess
air. It Is like tbe eaglet of the Rocky
mountains, whose wings were clipped. It
could see but not soar. Finally Its wings
grew out again and it found that It could
rise higher and higher and at last Joined
ts mates In the aeries of the mountains.
We have our bodies and souls to care for.
Let us not neglect either. Men win souls
by the Influence that comes from the foot
of the cross of Christ. In the midst of the
Roeky mountains Is that great and beau
tiful spectacle towering In tta nigged
grandeur above Its 'fellows, the Mount of
the Holy Cross. A vertical and horizontal
cleft In the mountain of vast proportions,
filled with everlasting snow, constitutes
the cross that gives the mountain Its
name. From the foot of this cross Issues
the clear, pure water that at last, finds
Its way to Denver to supply Its people with
God's pure nectar. From tbe foot of the
Cross of Calvary comes the Influence that
must save souls to God."
DUTY AID DE9TIHY OP AMERICA.
Rev, Hill Rays it Should riace Godli
ness First to Save It.
Sunday morning Rev. Harry G. Hill
preached at the First Christian church on
"The Duties and Destiny of America." It
was "home mission" day and he dwelt
particularly upon the faults and vices of
the country and tbe means of laving It
from these things.
"We all have," he said, "a great pride
In our country. When we are aay from
home the great things and the fine things
that the other peoples take pride In are
made the subjects of a comparison In our
own minds and we think that we have
things so much greater and so much Oner
at home. This pride Is natural, and yet,
If we knew it, a veritable heathen coming
into our country would look with surprise
upon us and our manners of living and
"Our cities are the centers of corrup
tion; there Is drunkenness, lewdness, thiev
ing and killing. We cannot legislate
against It. We must make the minds of
the people purer; we must teach them
to live clean Uvea.
"Our Ideas of liberty are being sub
served by many of the emigrants. They
think that license Is liberty and no re
straint Is placed upon their license. Cap
ital and labor are engaged In a war of
dlBtrust and unfriendliness. The two can
npt believe In each other and they sub
serve their own Interests and desires to
the detriment of the rest of the citizens.
"Within a decade the crisis must come
to this country. It will either leap for
ward and take that place among the na
tions of the world that its founders meant
It to take, or else the Idea of a govern
ment -of liberty will have, proved a delu
sion. But whichever way It goes, we will
find that the period of stress that this
country passes through will leave an In
delible mark upon the affairs of the en
tire world. What we must do Is to purify
the country. Make Godliness first and
have liberty without license, brotherly love
and not malicious distrust."

GOSSIP OF CITY CAMPAIGN
Democrat? Make No Secret that Benson
Leaden Will Tote for HoweiL
HOW THAT FIFTH .V.tD POLL WAS TAKEN
Women Were Asked to ate for Their
Husbands anil When They Ilefaaed
the ote Were Marked
With the Hoell campaign managers
boldly announcing that everything has
teen "fixed" ao that as much of the Benson
support bs can be controlled will be swung
Into line for tbe democratic nominee on
election day the Benson boom leaders are
concocting all kinds cf desperate schemes
to keep the credulous republicans from
voting for Moores. The credulous repub
licans are those to whose eyes the scales
still adhere and who believe that Benaor.
Is a real candidate.
One of the samples of how the Benson
campaigners are attempting to deceive tbe
public Into believing that the boomer can
didate lias a following is the announced re
sult of a poll of the Fifth ward. This, as
set forth in the red and yellow Benson
organ, showed that out of 1,308 voters 632
were for Benson, 314 for Moores, 301 for
Howell and 61 for W. H. Moore, with only
142 refusing to vote. This poll was certified
to not sworn to by such patriots as Hugh
A. Myers and Billie Saunders. It was stated ,
at length that the poll was taken by the
Toledo method, this being a secret method j
similar to voting by the Australian system,
each participator marking his ballot
secretly and casting It In a box.
One example of how this vote was taken
will suffice to show what a fraud and
mockery It Is. At the home of H. A. Has
kell, mechanical superintendent of The Bee
neither be nor hie son was at home. Mrs.
Haskell appeared at the ring of the poll
takers and when told wMat they wanted In
formed them that Mr. Haskell and her son
were not at home.
"Oh, well," waa the reply, "you know
how they stand and you might Just as well
vote for them. You go ahead and mark
these ballots as you think they would."
Mrs. Haskell, however, flatly declined,
saying that the political views and affilia
tions of the members of her family had no
right to find expression through her.
Then the painstaking, careful and con
scientious ascertalners of the public pulse
calmly marked two ballots for Erastus A.
Benson and cast them as In though In good
By such ballot box stuffing methods as
these was the false poll of the Fifth ward
arrived at, and It Is by schemes equally
adroit and fraudulent that all of the high
sounding Benson straw votes have been
taken. So common has become the talk
concerning the falsity of such counts that
they have not been given any weight what
ever, and are laughed at whenever an
nounced. The Eighth ward republicans will hold
a meeting at Wolfe hall. Twenty-second
and Cuming streets at 7:80 tonight. All
voters are invited to attend, and an In
teresting discussion of the Issues of tbe
campaign Is promised them. The meeting
will be addressed by Mayor Moores, City
Engineer Andrew Rosewater, City Attorney
Connell, Councilman Hoye and others.
General Solicitor Manderson of the B. A
M. denies that he ever authorized nv nf
his subordinates to offer Mayor Moores
tne nomination for congress provided he
would assist the B. & M. in keeping its
monopoly on trackage facilities In the loh.
blng district. Nevertheless Mayor Moores
Insists that such an offer was made to him
by one of the B. M. lawyers.

AT THE PLAYHOUSES
"Heart ami Smird" at the lloyai.
If there had been any doubt In the mind
of Dick Ferris or his friends as to his
popularity In Omaha, the experience of
yesterday must have dispelled It. Last
season the Ferris Summer Stock company
opened at the Boyd theater to the largest
attendance that had ever been packed Into
the house. It was put down In the books
as. a record, and stood as such until yes
terday. At the two performances yestenlfy
exactly 740 more people paid to get In than
did nne year ago. Where they all got to j
In the house Is a mystery to both mnn- !
agement and ushers; but the box ofilee
receipts cannot be denied. This Is cer- j
talnly a flattering reception to Mr. Ferris,
and one of which he may well feel proud.
The company which gave Its first per
formance yesterday Is a much stronger
one than he had here last summer, and Its
work won much merited applause. Robert
Blaylock, who was very popular last sea
son for his conscientious work, ts the only
member of tbe company known here, but
there are several others who will win for
themselves many friends If their work of
yesterday is a criterion of their ability.
Mr. Ferris, who took the role of Trlnce
Victor of Helnalt, the rollicking hero of
"Heart and Sword." gives us an excellent
conception of the man who can make love
or fight for his life with the same smile
on his face, and who Is yet true to the
best In his nature at all times. Miss Marie
Pavey, the leading lady of the rompany.
is both graceful and clever, with a good
stage presence and a sweet voice. The
piece Is well staged and competently acted.
It will continue until after Wednesday.
Vaudeville at the Oritheotn.
t hi elodinv week of the Orpheum's
season of vaudeville. Miss Elizabeth Mur
ray has come to us with her ragtime walk,
her distinctly better coon songs, her well
told Irish Ptorles and her all-pervading,
all-Infectious humor. If Omaha makes any
complaint about Miss Elizabeth it win De
nniv that she hasn't come more often. At
yesterday's performances she "took" like
a dude at a country dance and the audience
imnlv couldn't aet enougn or ner. one
had six recalls and could have had more If
she had gratified the last one. Her of
ferings are not particularly new mu vuey
are accepted as such because her way of
presenting them is so distinctly different
from the Impossible, loping, shouting, wig
wagging methods of the average coon
comedian of feminine persuasion. She Is
actually dainty about It and that Is saying
a rare thing of a ragtime artiste.
But Miss Murray has to ao exceptionally
well to keep pace with the company she
is in this week. As a whole, the bill has
not been excelled. If, Indeed, equalled In

Bohemian Dramatic Clab.
The last play for the season to be given
by the Bohemian-American Dramatic club
was witnessed by an audience that filled
the New Turner hall at Thirteenth and
Dorcas streets to overflowing last night.
The production waa that of the four-act
melodrama, " 'Twlxt Love and Law; or,
The Finger of Scorn." With the experi
ence gained by the work of the season in
other plays the amateur actors excelled in
the final effort, the movement of the play
being smooth and uniform and the dra
matic and elocutionary expression of a kind
that merited only the most favorable criti
cism. All of the participants had. an op
portunity to display ability in roles that
suited them. Their efforts to entertain met
with liberal and well-deserved applause.
Next winter the members of the club will
resume the study of other plays, presenting
one each month. Tbe season which clotted
last night was. a success, both from an ar
tistic and a financial standpoint.
