JEALOUSY THE DANGEROUS TENDENCY
sjaptlst nivlae Moved to a Plain Dl
cassloa of Knir by llesrlna
Hrrt Orator' naaaeroas
Rev. Thomas Anderson of Calvary Bap
tist church preached yesterday morning
from the text. Proverbs, twenty-second
chapter and second verse, "The rlcli and
poor ahall meet together. God Is the maker
of them all." He Raid In pirt:
"The temptation la strong to overlook or
minimise the one thousand encouraging
signs of tho present time We talk of the
good old times.' The Inference la that the
present Is bad. I will adn.lt that things are
rot all perfect. The end.-n y Is to frll
down and worship wealth rather Mian mnn
hood. Yet never was them n time when
the right of the poorest van better pro
tected and conceded. ThJ rich are called
grasping. Yet never wis t'.erc a time
when the rich more rega-lfd th'r wealth
as a stewardship than it present. Labor
Is not the degrading menl il thlrjt it once
was. Machinery has done more to benefit
the poor than the rich. !. lies put more
IntJ the pockets and heads of the lowly
than to the rich. It has taken away pliy
alcal drudgery. The poorest Is almost
quel In opportunity to the rich. The poor
man may now enjoy the luxuries of liter
ature and art. through the wonderful evo
lution of the printing press and photog
raphy. They have brought the master
pieces of literature and art to the homes
of the lowly. The poor and the rich have
advanced. Borne of the tendencies of the
times should be checked. Yet mankind
has advanced, both rich and poor, for mu
tual good and helpfulness. The poor re
as essential to human life and society as
are the rich. All men are equal before
God. Yet all men wer? not crented equal.
If all the wealth of the world were placed
right here and distributed pro rata, some
body would In a few d:iys legitimately
have my share. The poor ye shall have
always with you. Mod made no mistake
when he made the difference In classes.
These things were necessary to keep up the
stream of life, of helpful relationship be
tween the rich and the poor, the high and
the low. God made them nil.
Jealousy the Danger.
"The dangerous tendency of the' times Is
Jealousy. Those less favored than others
nvy their more fortunate and prudent
neighbors. I heard a speech the other day
In this city on one of the streets. It was
full of all manner of abuse, and If Its
doctrines were put to a practical test we
would have a Paris commune here Iwlth all
Its attendant horrors. It was the effect
of such a speech that sent a bullet Into
the breast of McKinley. And yet there are
some Christians who, for motives of policy,
would endorse such a speech. If these
sentiments , were to prevail unchecked It
would result In the death of not you alone,
but of all classes.
"The Paris revolution grew from the tree
of hatred and envy. Woe betide the day
when one forgets that as blue blood courses
In the veins of the poor as of the rich. Wo
are all one common family. The leaders
of literature, art and statesmanship come
from the huta of the lowly,
a Christ the Example.
"The greatest of these waa Christ, and
ha never hesitated to acknowledge the
debt he owed to the rich. Among some the
Idea prevails that the rich are murderers,
robbers and thieves. There arc honest rich
man a there are honest poor men.- We
have no business to condemn a man off
hand because he Is rich. There ara those
whose riches ara founded In blood and
bankruptcy. I am not speaking- of them
Nor of the aristocracy of wealth or pov
erty. Let us aeek f"r the man behind the
wealth or poverty. There are miseries and
perplexities In all classes of life. Let us
all, rich and poor, recognize that there Is
but one common God, and He Is over all.
Let us come to believe In and love more
and more one another. Man may toll with
his brains or his hands. Let us pray for
the coming day when It shall be 'A man
a man for 'a that.' "
cast our seed Into the country through the
missionary and receive It bark again as
we drain the country churches for our
city membership, which provides Isrgely
for that moral tone that gives stability and
pomer to our city's business establishments.
"The mission church is not very grand
in the frontier town, but It stands for the
things that are righteous snd will endure.
It Is a protest against the saloon and In
temperance, against the loosely held mar
riage tie and against Sabbath desecration.
It continually reminds us of the better
things of spiritual value. This gospel has
to be preached to have force. Good does
not sprlr.g up of Itself. It Is the result of
painstaking, self-sacrificing planting by
the humble missionary.
"We are asking today, not for charity
for the poor, but an Investment In moral
undertaking which Is to make the land
better and Is to raise the standard of citizenship."
MISSIONS MERELY INVESTMENTS.
Rev. Jenka Itelleves the Return
From Such Mowing; are) Large.
"Cast thy bread upon the watera, for
thou shalt find it after many days." was
the text from which Rev. Jenks preached
a sermon on home missions at the First
Presbyterian church yesterday morning.
"The word seed should be substituted
for the word bread," he said, "making the
figure one of sowing and reaping. Home
missions was the seed time of the church.
Missions Is not a sentiment, but a business.
The branch of the Presbyterian body which
we represent contributes a round million
of dollars a year to the laying of moral
foundations In our land.
"Along with the will, axe and plow has
rome the home missionary to lay a moral
basis for today's material, mental and
moral greatness. Home missions Is a ques
tlon of real statesmanship. The city has
Its own problems to solve, but the welfare
of the country is one of kin. The city Is
the child of the country. A city without
a country back of It could not exist .and
would be an anomaly. The city draws
from the country the brightest and best
of the boys and girls to recruit Its ranks
of business and here Is where the work of
the home missionary counts the largest.
The character of the men and women who
compose a city la of the aupremest value.
In the country town and rural districts the
foundatlona of moral power are laid. We
FAVORS PREACHING t Rl CIFIXION.
Iter. Worst Says It Is Plvlao Method
of Savins; Men.
At the Seward Street Methodist church
Sunday morning Rev. William Oorst, the
pastor, preached upon "The Necessity for
Preaching the Crucifixion of Christ," tak
ing as his text I Cor. 1-22:24. He briefly
reviewed the history of the three mission
ary trips of St. Paul and referred to tha
condition of the church at Corinth at the
time the epistle was written. He said In
"The members of the church at Corinth
had fallen Into vice and partisanship; soma
claimed to oe Christians according to the
rule of Paul, some according to the rule of
Cephas, some according to one apostle, and
some according to another, but few claimed
to be Christians according to Christ. Wa
have some of these people on earth today,
and you will remember what a bombshell
was burst not far from here when a young
preacher charged a certain people with
being followers of a man rather than of
'There Is great difficulty In overcoming
prejudice and the Christian religion has to
encounter thlr prejudice. The Jews asked
for a sign; they iad been led by Moses,
and he had seen the bush; Elijah and Ell
sha had given signs; they desired miracles
although they denied them when they were
given, but they asked for a perpetual mira
cle, and were not satisfied. The Greeks
sought after wisdom. They desired to grasp
some earthly truth and by that reason
themselves to heaven. We have descend
ants of both at the present day and both
give somo trouble. But the preaching of
the crucifixion Is the divine method of
bringing men to Christ. It Is a stumbling
block to the Jews and foolishness to the
Greeks, but It Is the method that will con
quer. It Is the way In which God has or
dained thi message and the messenger. It
Is the duty of men to preach and the duty
of men to hear. Tou may read papers and
books, nay, even the Bible and you will
not satisfy the conditions of salvation, for
the message and the messenger is the dl
vlnely ordained plan."
REV. LONG PLEADS WOMAN'S CAl'SE.
Gives Christian Association Balldlns
Project a Help.
Rev. De Witt Long at the Knox Presby
terian church spoke Sunday morning ot
the working woman, taking as his subject
the text "Help these women." He spoke
In connection with the work that the Young
Women's Christian association Is doing In
the securing of a new home and begged
that aid be given the association In every
manner possible by whomsoever could. Tin
said In part: .
"Woman Is America's natural aristocracy.
We have no other. Man always looks up
to her and guards and watches after her
welfare without regard to whether sha
does her own work In the world or not.
More and more Is woman being thrown
Into the commercialism of this world. In
Omaha there are more than 8,000 women
earning their own living. This Is more
than one-third of all the women In the
city. But do not let any more of them
touch commercialism than necessary. I
do not think It blunts the fineness of their
lives but It does not seem entirely right
that all women should work In life.
"As women are our aristocracy we want
them to be self-reliant and frank. Are
they so nowT I would not care to answer
It. I ask It as a question. If our aris
tocracy must be. and I am glad that It Is,
woman must do all In her power to merit.
"The Young Women's Christian associa
tion Is doing this work in a large way.
Every day Its members come In contact
with and do something for 900 women. This
Is a great work. What we want to do is
to aid them In their work and we can do
so now by helping them toward the con
summation of their building scheme."

Homer P. Lewis, for thirteen years
Identified with the public schools of
Omaha, first as principal of n grammar
school and later of the high school, has
just been elected superintendent of schools
at Worcester, Mass., to which place he
removed from Omaha In 1s16 to become
principal of a grammar school.
The Worcester Telegram of May 8 relates
that the school board there stood fifteen for
Mr. Lewis and nine for other eandldatei
for the place, but that after the former
Omahan showed his majority the minority
felt so kindly toward him that his election
was made unanimous. Incidentally the
paper makes many favorable comments
concerning his service In Worcester.

Will Gather at r'anulngioa
AFFAIRS AT SOUTH OMAHA
Oitr Oonnoil is to Have Three Meeting!
BOND ORDINANCES ARE COMING UP
Will Be Introdaced Tonight and Re
ferred for Immediate Report of
Judiciary Committee Second
Three, If not more meetings of the rlty
council will be held this week. Tonight,
at the regularly adjourned meeting, or
dinances for the issuing of bond for an
extension of the sewer sytem, for a city
hall and for "hi overlip will be intro
duced. When the ordinance on city hall
bonds gets to the ludlciary committee the
total will be changed from $40,000 to $60,000.
The sewer bonds will call for $36,000 and
the overlap $70,000.
These ordinances will be Introduced In
the council tonight and referred to the
Judiciary committee. An Immediate report
will be made and then an adjournment
until Tuesday afternoon will be' taken. At
the meeting Tuesday the ordinances will
be read the second time and then on
Wednesday afternoon there will be another
meeting for the purpose of passing the
three ordinances mentioned. Wednesday
night the council meets to listen to remon
strances In liquor license cases.
After the ordinances for the special elec
tion for bonds are passed and signed by
the mayor a date for the special election
will be set. It will be necessary to name
a date for the revision of registration and
this will be done at the same time the date
Is named for the election. As there was
no election here this spring there was no
revision of the registration books. A re
vision will (therefore be necessary In case
a special election Is held. This special elec
tion will cost the city not less than $."i00.
There Is another question to consider and
that Is the voting of bonds for a high
school building. Should the members of
the Board of Education desire to hare the
bond proposition come up at this time It
will be necessary to have the papers pre
pared at once. In case the high school
proposition Is voted on at this time a por
tion of the expense of the special election
will be paid by the school district.
Some taxpayers are afraid that the prop
osition to Issue $255,000 In bonds will scare
the people but assurance has been given
that these bonds can be floated at 4H per
cent. Heretofore the city has paid 5, 6
and even 7 per cent for money. There
seems to be a general Impression that the
city should have some public improve
ments at this time and It Is Inferred from
street talk that the bond proposition will
Board Meets Tonlsrht.
A meeting of the Board of Education Is
scheduled for tonight. The result of the
mass meeting of Friday night will be com
municated to the board and it Is expected
that steps will be taken to secure the
Immediate Issuance of $100,000 In bonds for
the construction of a suitable high school
building. There waa a rumor on the streets
last night to the effect that teachers will
be named tonight, but some members of
the board Inclined to the opinion that the
election of teachers would go over until
the first regular meeting In June. The
new board la expected to pay some bills
and to reject some. Among the bills to be
rejected, It Is reported, is the bill for $450
for planting trees about school buildings.
In a general way, business of Importance
to the school district will be transacted.
Schedule Answer Delayed.
Owing to the absence of E. A. Cudahy In
the south, the packers have not had an
opportunity to meet and talk over the
Schedule presented to them a few days ago
by Mr. Vail, who represents the labor In
terests here. Mr. Cudahy will not return
before Wednesday night or Thursday morn
ing and it la possible that the answer of
the packers will be held back until the
latter part of the week or the first of
next week. President Donnelly is not push
ing the packers any and the Inference Is
that an amicable agreement will be ar
rived at, so that the work In the plants
here will go on the same as usual.
Troop May Party.
Tonight at the armory the South Omaha
cavalry troop will give its annual May
party. The armory will be handsomely
decorated with flags and bunting and an
enjoyable evening Is expected by those who
have received Invitations. There will be

an exhibition drill will precede the dancing.

"The Belle of Richmond" at the Boyd.
In "The Belle of Richmond." a four-act
comedy drama of southern life, the Ferris
summer stock company began the second
week of Its engagement at the Boyd yes
terday to crowds that flllel every available
bit of room In the theater. Those who
could see and hear were given a decided
treat. The play' itself Is new to Omaha,
and Is one of the kind that everybody
enjoys. It tells an Interesting love story
In an Interesting way, mixing enough of
comedy and the dramatic features to add
test to Its nentlmental aspect. It served
yesterday to Introduce to Omaha Mr. C.
Scott Slddons, the new leading nrin of
the company. Mr. Slddons made a most
favorable Impression by his work In the
role of Gerald Gordon, the manly hero.
He Is a well built, handsome man, of
good manners and with a nleaslng voice,
and has evidently been well schooled In
his profession. Others of the company are
happily cast, and do their work with the
additional finish that comes from a mori
Intimate acquaintance with each other's
methods. In every way the company Is
working smoothly now. and its popularity
is well established. Mr. Harry Long, tho
stage manager, has shown himself a mas
ter of his craft, and the setting he has
given the present piece Is both ample and
adequate. The stage during the first
act Is as pretty a picture as one wants
to see. "The Belle of Richmond" will
be the bill until sfter Wednesday.
CAUGHT IN H0TEL LOBBIES
Travelers at Omaha Hotels Tell of
Their Observations la Vari
M. Campion of Seward. Neb., is In the
city, a guest at the Her Grand. Of the
condition of affairs around Seward he
speaks most hopefully. He said:
"The fruit crop Is not Irreparably dam
aged In Seward county, though the storm
of last week gave it a very severe Jolt.
The first fruit buds were badly Injured but
the trees, especially cherry trees, are again
In full bloom and we expect a good crop
notwithstanding the freese. Apple trees
are not injured at all according to my ob
servation. The farmers are beginning to
plant corn and the ground Is In the finest
condition. Probably more corn will be
planted in Seward county this season than
ever before In Its history. The good prices
obtained for last season's crop has stimu
lated our people to paying more attention
to this great Nebraska staple, and no
county of the state can produce a higher
grade of corn than Seward county. There
will be also a big acreage of oats planted.
The wheat has come through the winter
In the best shape and, taking it all around,
the prospects for Seward county for the
coming year Is most encouraging."
J. R. McKim of Pittsburg, Kan., was an
Omaha visitor yesterday. He is engaged
in the milling business there and says of
affairs in that section:
'Pittsburg is practically a mining town,
although it Is surrounded by as fine an
agricultural country as exists anywhere.
We are bothered there somewhat Just now
with the strike question, though not to
so serious an extent as Omaha. There is
a considerable stagnation of business there
on account of the strike among the miners,
but there Is a very fair prospect of a
speedy adjustment of the troubles. We
are looking for a big boom in the oil pro
ducing industry, too. The field is prac
tically boundless, as are the possibilities
for the production of natural gas. The
proximity of Pjttsburg to the great lead
and sine fields "ot southeastern Kansas and
southwestern Missouri Is the best assurance
of the great future of the town. It Is at
present one of the most thrifty towns In
the state and Is growing rapidly. There
are many buildings there now that would
be a credit to .Omaha."
H. C. Green of Miller, Buffalo county, Is
an Omaha visitor and la stopping at the
Merchants a few days. "The storm of
several days ago has practically killed all
the fruit up In Dawson and Buffalo coun
ties," said he, "and I doubt whether we
will have any fruit to speak of at all.
The farmers are, however. In the midst of
corn planting and we will have a bigger
acreage up there this year than for many
years. The Platte valley west of Kearney
Is becoming one of the great alfalfa re
gions of the state, and more attention Is
now being paid to dairy farming than ever
before. An Increased acreage of alfalfa Is
being planted each year, and nowhere In
the state does this great forage crop thrive
better than In the Platte valley. We are
not particularly" dependent upon irrigation
In the valley, hence we can depend on a
sure crop at all times. There was a rreit
number of cattle fed in the valley during
the season and the prospect Is for many
more being fed the coming season. There
are practically no sheep In that section
as there Is no range for them. A con
siderable number of cattle are pastured
on the highland ranges, but as a whole
both counties are being gradually given
over to miscellaneous farming."
MUSIC OVERPOWERS RAIN
Festival Draws Enthusiastic Audiences De
spite Bad Weather.
CHICAGO ARTISTS' WORK IS DONE
Sunday Afternoon Concert at ' roll
seam Concludes the Festival Ex
cept far tha Great Brest of
Sunday sfternoon's concert was the last
of the musical festival series In which the
Chicago musicians take part. There re
mains only the jvnt of Friday evening--the
greatest of the festival, but In which
the festival choir has but one number to le
sung with Madame Nordlca. The re
nowned artists Nordlca and DeResxke nd
the Metropolitan Opera House orchestra
render the program.
The concert of yesterday. If It brought
out any new fact, made plnln that a large
number of the people of Omaha entoy
music and will go to considerable trouble
to hear It. The miserable rain did not
prevent a large audlenco, perhaps the best
of the festival, from reaching the Coli
seum. The program waa a concession to
the day and as printed was In the greater
part sacred. For Handel's largo, however,
the "Irish Rhapsody No. 1" of Stanford,
which was played Thursday evening, wss
Mr. Seeboeck followed with three selec
tions and an encore on the piano and was
warmly applauded notwithstanding that the
pianist labors under a considerable disad
vantage when Immediately succeeding the
orchestra with Its rich tone variety. His
"Rustles of Spring" was given with a
tender grace of touch most pleasing, and
the "Caprice" which followed, while not a
showy piece, was of much difficulty.
Mr. Hamlin sang again two songs and for
an encore Clay's "I Sing the Songs of
Araby." In "Deeper, Deeper- Still," and
In his encore, his vole of the pure tenor
quality, displayed Its large sympathetic
possibilities. He made a lasting Impres
sion on his hearers.
A Tonch of Sacrvdness.
Rossini's "The Stabat Mater," a Latin
hymn, breathed the sanctified atmosphere
of the dim cathedral find satisfied the Sun
day audience. If there can be said to be
any portion of Mr. Rosenbecker's orchestra
which surpasses the others it Is the violin
section which Is most excellent.
The second part of tha program consisted
of an Interlude from the "Messiah" of
Handel, the pastoral symphony "The
Plains of Bethlehem," with solo and quar
tette parts fort the Chicago singers, tha
festival choir and the orchestral- accom
paniment, Mesdames Wilson and Furbeck
and Messrs. Hamlin and Beresford de
lighted the audience by their art. The
chorus did well indeed, with the noble
music, singing In passages without accom
paniment and rising to the climaxes handsomely.
