Edward Hart Jenka preached on "The
Memories of the Brave."
"One of the greatest things of the na
tion," he said, "la that It haa auch a his
tory ef Ita defenders that it may and doea
honor them In Ita most sacred hours and In
Its moat aacred way. We Americans have
memories as right and as blessed of those
who- have been our defenders on land and

which la written down In this sacred book.

world up to thts very hour and His arm

I believe has made and will continue to
make one of the most sacred and Important
chapters In . the' world's progress. Right
baa marked our conquests and we can aee
that 'God haa led our republic Just aa He
led Israel In the old days, and I think this
country Is even more dear to Him than
wsa Israel. - The more we think of our his
tory the firmer must we become convinced
that the hand ot God . haa been specially
and potentially revealed.

Its .defenders,, both the surviving and the

gravures upon the tablets of the American
mind and the American heart. Tou should
read the history of our warriors as you do
your bible, for It has been the history of
liberty, of progress and of Christian ad
vancement. ,"In these days of dissension and conten
tion concerning vital matters of our na
tional life we 6f ten ' tremble ' and wonder
whether or not, after all, this republic Is
destined to live and to prosper. ' But I say
to you that any nation that has among
Ita peoples a body of veterans ouch as we
hava- need never despair nor become dis
couraged. They met difficulties that were
much greater than confront us today and
they met them before the nation had gath
ered the strength and the wealth and the
resources that It now possesses; and, beset
, by every physical condition that should
make them loao, they won the victory and
preserved the union.

There are phases of it that are as evil

Intelligent peace. Labor is learning that It

of Jesus Christ .' Standing on Mount Morlah
we' behold the flowing blood of birds and
beasts, 'the type of a more precious blood

.'.'All great, achievements are costly. The
abolition of slavery was expensive. Just
before his execution John Brown said he
ohce thought .hat slavery might be abol
ished: without' bloodshed, yut that he had
changed' his mind. In a year and a half
from that time the north and south were
engaged In a bloody war over negro slavery,
which cost the country 15,000,000,000 and
1.00C.0OO human lives, besides hardship and
Buffeting - which could not be counted,

"Great and brave soul's are not easily

"What a striking example of courage
and perseverance we have In our federal
soldiers In putting down the rebellion; for
no number of battles, no' amount of suf
fering, no stretch of time and no stubborn

not keep you from pressing on to Rich

"It Is on this same line that life's bat

death Christ reconciled offending man and
offended God. Ha bridged tha chasm with
His own body and sealed the union with
His own blood. His mission was peace
on earth to men of good will. All the
north wanted of the south In the time of
rebellion was that It lay down Its arms
and come back Into the union. Grant voiced
the feeling ef the north when he skid: 'Let

URGES GOVERNMENT TO . INTERFERE
Selects I. W. Carpenter to Convey K
preaaloa Russian Atrocity to
ot Rational Capital.
Rev. Thomas Anderson of Calvary Bap
tist .church took for hla text yesterduy
morning Romans, eleventh chapter and first
verse: "1 say, then. Hath God cast away
His people? Uod forbid. For 1 also am an
Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of tae
tribe of Benjamin." Rev. Anderson said,
'There are many Interesting features con
nected with the history of the Jews, as
there are many forgotten facta concerning
them. . It Is true that they are not our
brethren and kinsmen in the flesh, but they
are our brethren in the kingdom of God. It
la believed in England to this day that the
Anglo-Saxon race Is the lost ten tribes of
Israel. The world and civilization owes a
vast debt to the Jews. The fiendish perse
cutions of the sons of Abraham In Russia,
and the cruelties Inflicted upon them re
cently equal and even surpass In flendlsh-
ness anything that transpired In the per
secutions of the Protestants under. Bloody
Mary, or the Christiana under Nero. Would
to God that Gladstone were now alive to
raise his mighty voice and express hla In
dignation over, these persecutions of the
Jews In Russia, as hp denounced tha Ar
menian atrocities by the unspeakable Turk.
These Russian atrocities far surpass any
thing done by the Turk, yet Russia gets
the credit of being a Christian nation and
one of the great civilised powers of earth.
We should blush that such things' are pos
sible In this early dawn of the twentieth
century, not alone ' for . ourselves, but for
Russia. , : . i
Rnasla Not Alone.
'But then Russia la not alone in this bit
terness of feeling and persecution , of that
race that gave to us the religion of God. In
Germany, France, Austria and Roumanla
these persecutions exist In but a milder
form. There In, oo, .some lingering hatred
In England and in our own great republto
of the United States against this people.
We all . remember the brutal attack
upon tha funeral of the , leading
Jewish rabbi In New . .York a year
or so ago. In many of pur American
Cartoonists and humorists utilise the Jew i
for .their most brutal cartoons and wit
Uclsma. It Is but the outcropping of spite!
and hatred here against this race that finds
Its outlet in murder and massacre In phleg
matic Russia. I am thankful for one thing
and that Is, however much the Jew may be
derided and persecuted, you have to get up
very early In the morning to get ahead of
him. . . . ' i
"The stories of the tragic career of the
Jew find their ' best expression In the
'Wandering Jew' and Wallace's 'Prince of
India.' Their race history has been one
of unutterable agony. They are companions
of sorrow and grief.- In the tragedy of the
cross It was the Jews who cried' out 'His
blood be on us and our children.' And
how truly haa this' prophecy been fulfilled
In the ages since then. But this does not
Justify the world's persecution of them.
They have been denied the justice of their
fellow men, yet they . are entitled to the
lasting gratitude and love of the world.
The world owes more to the Jew than to
all ' other races of mankind combined.
America particularly owes much to them.
It was. a Spanish Jew whose aid to Isabella
made It possible to give a new continent
to the world. It was a Jew who gave the
money out of his own pocket for the equip
ment of the ships of Columbus, It was a
Jew who made the maps and charts that
indicated his way across the ocean. It
waa these Jews who aided Providence in
finding this new world. It was a Jew whose
liberally given means enabled the Puritan
fathers to cross the ocean and establish an
empire here. It was a Jew whose means
enabled the Impoverished American' con
gress to carry on the American revolution,
and not one farthing of this money ever
has been restored to him or his descend
ants. They were loyal and faithful patriots
during our civil war. They have done more
toward the liberation of the world than all
other races of history." ;
Charrh Votes m Protest.
Upon the conclusion of Rev. Anderson's
sermon, he stated that he believed It very
proper that some expression should be
had relative to the sentiments of this com
munity over the atrocities committed , by
Russia against the Jews, and he read the
following resolution which was passed by
an unanimous rising vote of the very large
congregation present: . -
Whereas, God hath made of one blood
all nations of men to dwell on all the face
Of the earth and
Whereas, The fiendish massacre of Jews
at Klschlneft Is a gross outrage ot truth,
and the Inherent right of every man to life
and liberty and pursuit Of happiness, fur
which our fathers in the United States
freely gave their blood and lives, there

PREACHES HOPE TO WORKMEN
Rot. Craig; Bases His Special Sermon
ea a Principle of tho
' A large congregation was assembled at
Trinity cathedra) last evening to enjoy the
excellent sermon delivered by Rev. Robert
E. I Craig, rector of the cathedral, espe
cially to the Ancient Order of United Work
men and their friends. The members of
the order met first at their hall, and then
marched In a body to the cathedral. The
local lodges represented were Nos. 17, IS,
M, 159 and S22, and numbered about sixty
In uniform. The front seats of the church
were reserved for them.
' Rev. Mr. Craig took for his text He
brews vl. It: "Which hope we have as an
anchor of the soul, both sure and s ted fast,
and which entereth Into that within the
vail." He said, In part:
"It gives me a great deal of plessure to
meet the Ancient Order of United Work
men here this evening, and I would be
pleased and glad to have you meet with us
at any and all times. One of your members
requested me to preach to you on a aubject
which Is one of the greet principles of your
honorable order, the gospel of hope. In
every sphere and department of human
life hope excels and la a. prominent part.
Hope Is like the mainspring of a watch. It
Is the mainspring of human Ufa. It Is no
wlll-'o-the-wtsp. It holds up the rewards
and truths of the future. It stimulates
the student to burn the midnight oil in
anticipation of the fruition of commence
ment day, when -friends will strew the
flowers of reward at bis feet for his
achievements, and even now scatters roses
along bis pathway. It is the stimulus of
the lawyer in hla atudy of the codex of
natlona; the life of Invention; the mainstay
of ganlus; the battle flsg of the brave; the
Inspiration of the discoverer a he traverses
seas and deserts. It brought Columbus to
America; sent LJvlncstone Into the heart
of darkest Africa; it gives courage to the
plowman, in seed time and In harvest; it
mskes the mother rock the cradle and
tunes her heart to the lullaby song, and
Illumes the future of her loved offspring.
When heavy clouds beset us 'tis hope that
teaches that their sombre edges have a
silver lining and draws the rainbow of
promise, though seen through tears. Tet
every tear drop In a prism whose rays are
tinged In celestial glory. It lightens sor
row, cheers the downcast' and raises the
fallen. Without it what would human
love, achievement or aspiration be?"
WISH FEWER RECITATIONS
Omaha Teachers Bnroarune Board to
Redaee Number ot Periods
At the next meeting of the Board of
Educstlon the high school committee prob
ably will report a resolution for a change
In the study hours at the high school to
restore the recitation time to five periods
In place of six, as at present.
The" committee recently held a meeting
with the heads of the departments and
the teachers it the high school for the
purpose of . ascertaining their opinion of
the proposed change, and the result was
thst .every person connected with teaching
at the high school favored the five-recitation
periods. The principal objection to
the six periods is that It gives the teachers
insufficient time between the periods. Each
period of recitation takes forty-flve minutes,
which, under Ihe six-period system, keeps
the teacher In the recitation room for four
hours and thirty minutes out of the total
of six hours of school, while under the
five-period system they would be In the
recitation room three hours and forty-five
minutes. The teachers before the commit
tee sold they' find It Impossible to do the
work as It should be done when they are
compelled to hear classes without having
enough .time' between to give the teacher
an opportunity to recover' from the strain
of the preceding recitation; that In order
to secure the best results they must attract
and hold the attention of the olass during
the entire time of recitation and that after
the morning hburs this Is ' Impossible he
cause of the weariness occasioned by the
strain of frequent recitations.
The six-period system has been In vogue
In the high school but a comparatively
short time, . and the change would be but
a return to the method which obtained for
There is some question aa to the' fate of
the resolution in the meeting of the board.
The high school committee Is not absolutely
unanimous on the resolution at this time
and It is expected' that It will meet with
some lively opposition when It Is called up
for consideration:'" The president of the
board, Theodore Johnson, favors the fewer
periods, because of the expression of the
teachers. ' He said yesterday that these
teachers and heads of departments, all
being In favor of the change, demonstrated
to him that : they would do better work
under . that' plan than under the present
one, and that the heads of the departments
should have their Ideas carried-out as far
as' possible, as they are held responsible
for the results obtained In tho school and
were more familiar with the conditions
than the most attentive member of , the
Board of Education could be. -
POINTS PLEADS FOR PEACE
Tell Philosophical Society of tho Bad
Peateres.aad Bad Effects
. ot War.
J. J. Points, at the meeting ot the Phi
osophlcal society Sunday afternoon, de
livered an address on "Peace, and War."
He said that all of the progress of which
the world can boast Is the result of peace,
during which alone can exist these har
monious relations between men which pro
duce advancement ' In' art, philosophy' and
science; that commerce, the great pacifier,
is the one thing to which the people now
can look to make wars Impossible; that
aa people become acquainted they realise
the brotherhood of man and hold In higher
respect those who 'are not Identical with
them In manner of life and thought. He
said' that while some progress has been
made by nations while at war, It was only
during a foreign war which made pos
sible 'conditions, of peace at home, under
which . this progress waa made.
He disagreed with Tolstoi and other,
writers who preach the doctrine of non
resistance and aald that under one con
dition at least war' la Justifiable, and that
la when after . exhausting all attempts at
peaceable arbitration, a nation ' Is invaded
and threatened with loss of power and
WYrltory, and the people denied opportunity
for. evolution. On this basis the wars of
the- revolution and of the rebellion in the
United States could be justified.
In conclusion, he said that he Is op
posed to war on the grounds, first that It
substitutes might for right in the settle
ment of questions; second, that war Is
alwaya destructive and never constructive;
third, because of the evil effects upon those
engsged In' it especially the common sol
dier from whom Is taken all responsibility
for his actions, he being supposed to obey
Instructions without caring why; the ' ef
fects of this lack of responsibility and
blind adherence to orders is reflected tin
the opinion of the common soldier In the
minds of the people of all countries, who
have aa a rule little respect for him;
fourth,' because It destroys the home and
gives the aoldler a poor Idea of woman
hood; marriage being discouraged by of

KANSAS CITY STORY SAID TO BE UNTRUE
Omaha Jobber Days that Retailers ot
This City Are Not sending; Their
Baslness to Mlsaosirl
Sunday waa a "day of rest" for the local
strikers. The eltuatton waa unchanged.
Only two meetings were held during the
day, those by the waiters and laundry
workers, and both were uneventful. The
waiters received Fred C. Hobby of Cleve
land, an International organizer, who will
be in the city for a few days. The laundry
workers expected T. C. Wilson, one ot their
International officers, but he wired from
Chicago that he could not be here on
time. He has just concluded a final set
tlement of the strike In Chicago In which
the laundry, workers were active partici
pants. He probably will get here today.
The report that Omaha retailers are
patronising . Kansas City wholesalers,
which comes from the city on the Kaw In
a press dispatch, arouses nothing- but dis
gust In Omaha, where It is pronounced
absolutely false. This statement Is made
In connection with the report that the
freight handlers ot Kansas City are to
strike In sympathy with those of Omaha,
who left their work In sympathy with the
teamsters and have since been advised
that they could not return to work If
Trade Sticks to Omaha.
Speaking of the report as to the Omaha
retailers dealing In Kansas City, Charles
II. Pickens ot Paxton A Gallagher com
"There is no vestige of truth in the
story. It la unreasonable and foolish on
the face of It. The only Inquiry to the
wholesalers of Omaha that has arisen from
thla labor trouble came from the reDorts
circulated by outside traveling men at the
nrst tnst Omaha was unable to supply Its
trade. Omaha retailers are patronising
home markets Just the same aa ever."
No confirmation of the report relating
to the sympathetic strike of the freight
handlers can be obtained in Omaha. The
freight handlers here, who struck at the
Burlington and . Union Pacific and also
at some of the wholesale houses, were
soon succeeded by new men and their for
mer employera have said that the old men
wouio not oe taken back even If they
wanted to come
