TITE OMAITA DAILY BEE: MONDAY. FEflTlUATJY Z2. WASHINGTON AND LINCOLN ToitoM at Tillay Torgt, Latter at Gettyt bnrg Form American Ideals- DR. JENKS PREACHES NATAL DAY SERMON Pee I are a So Other Tno Men In llla torr I'nrm o lllnh Political 4 Moral Composites aa TfcMf, The Flmt Preshytr Dun church wm radi ant yesterday In Its beautiful interior adornment with Arnerlrnn tings and from th front of the nrr;in was Hiisrcnilerl a picture of Clportrp Washington, surrounded With neatly draped miKS. The. services were held In special reference to the approach Of Washington's birthday and the, music iras of a patriotic nnture. The T. K. quartette Mng a special, number, "Where Arm the Boys of the Old nrlgiide?" Rev. Edwin Hurt Jenks spoke upon the ubject, "Ideal American, nnd Amerlran Ideals." lie said In pert: "Two men, both horn In the. month of February, Meorge Washington and Abra ham Lincoln. No two men of our national history represent In themselves or form no high a political and moral composite aa Washington and Lincoln. That W why we hold up theee men ua our true American ideal. Only one thing Is great on thla earth ind that Ih man. man and his soul. That finest proof that earth shows up to God Is the finished man. Christ was sent to represent Clod's Ideal among men. America offers to men an opportunity. The spirit of man Is unchanged. That man shall have that opportunity under the Stars and Stripes Is unqualifiedly true. Man's opportunity Is his capacity, his fidelity and his character. Nothing can land In the way of these. The figure that would most clearly represent the true American If placed on a pedestal would be that of a man habited In the coarse garments of toll. That, to my mind, would represent the true American cltlen. It does not matter at what we toil, but how. People Who Can Bo Taught. "The American ideal Is a people who can be educated, that hand and heart can diffuse the intelligence of their concen trated powers. Every Amerloan Is a sov ereign. No man Is better than I be cause he wore a crown. The great educat ing force of the newspaper diffuses Itself throughout the land and none is so poor but that he can get a good paper In his home. "There is one place where we are weak and that Is along the lines of the develop ment of moral character. Whatever Is thought of President Roosevelt today, the 'one paramount belief Is that he Is honest. If ho does represent what I think and what millions of men think he represents, no name will stsnB above his In the list of our great prexldonts. What a fall there will -be In our Ideals If the time shall ever come that we are Indifferent to cor ruption in high places, and where culprits may be whitewashed by Insincere Investi gations. Let us hope that' the commer cial spirit has not fastened Its fangs on man's soul. Even the laborer who Is worthy of Ms hire has no right to take ' pay for labor, he does not perform. In so doing he Is as dishonest as the corrupt trusts. "The greatest epochs In the lives of our great American IdealB were Washington at Valley Forge and Lincoln at Gettys burg." BALOOX STORM CENTER OF SIN. Rev. H. C. Ilerrlna Ar raisins Omaha as Wicked City. Rev. Robert C. Herring of the First Con gregational church chose for Cie subject vt his discourse "The Public Morals of Omaha." ' 'There art two ways of handling this Subject," aa4 Re. Mr. Herrln. "on ll to treat this city as the plague spot of the world and the other Is to whitewash the facta. Both are wrong. Consequently, I will speak to you this morning simply, candidly, quietly of the evils that exist. "The chief evil is saloons. Their power has grown from year to year on account of their control passing Into the hands of a few brewers. These men can more easily wield the Influence of the saloons against the welfare of the community. There Is danger of massing power In a few hands when those hands are unclean. The opera tlon of gambling dens, of Indecent dance halls and of other evils Is due directly to the saloons. In short, the saloon Is the storm center of uncteanliness. The sale of Intoxicants Is not the only evil that surrounds It. ''It requires courage to stand up against the saloon power at any point. One of the worst forms In which wickedness breaks ut In a community Is the Indecent theater There ts one within three blocks of this church which runs day and night. Ths .saloons ara at the bottom of these. "If for some reason the group of man who ara responsible for these evils w to summoned to the publlo bar we should be forced to summon the brewers. They re the arch criminals, no matter how re spectable they may appear. . "There Is-no earnest desire on the part of our public officials to correct these evils. Bo far as I can sea these disorderly ele ments have nothing to fear from the lew, I reallie their powers are limited, though they have the luw to back them, they can not close the saloons. But the license of very saloon In this city could be revoked today on the charge of openly breaking the law. Our city officials could close the Indocent theaters, but I do not see them .doing it I do not know, personally, of official dishonesty in our city government, but you and I could easily agree upon many points bearing upon publlo morals In our city administration. I would suggest for the correction of the current evils that the people organise for self-protection. We already have three organisations with this object In view, and I believe they can cover the ground thor oughly If they receive the proper amount of support from our cltlaens. I believe. also, that we shov'd have a monthly bul Jetln published Ir, the Interest of morals. I should like to know what Is at the bot , torn of the rece it fir engine deal which has been made by our city government. would like to know If our city administra tion Is controlled by a paving monopoly, aa nme people charge. But. you say, don't we nave the newspapers, We do have ' them, that Is ths trouble. We feel quite s much In the dark after we have read them aa we did before. We are In the dark when they tell the truth as much as when they do not, for wo have grown skeptical. "We need a toning up all along the line. W'e must make an effort to get the right men Into office, and then we must make an effort to get them to do their duty." CALLS OMAHA STKSICH TO WORLD Rev. K. Coauble Smith Rays Vice Is Rampant. "A city wide open with vice and a stench In the nostrils of men everywhere." what Rev. R. Combte Smith said of Omaha In a sermon at the First Methodist church yesterday morning. After contrasting city Ufa with that in the country, he declared reforms are necessary In thla municipality and pleaded for co-operation with th league formed recently with the avowed purpoes of reforming the rlty. . boC permit ft maaa of filth, to stsnd In the streets," said the minister. "Then why do you allow masses of moral filth to gather within the confines of your city? Your home upon the avenue, you ray. Is In an atmosphere of culture and refinement, but you overlook the fact that the same avenue runs to the river and that It runs through sones of filth and slime and moral corruption. Why have you al lowed the red-llghf district to make In roads upon the residence portion of your rlty and afford a menace to the virtue of your children? Why do you permit the nnnenforcement of the Hlocumb law and allow saloons to be open all day Sunday and twenty-four hours out of every day In the seven to spread their contamination and evil? "Do you know that the advancement of the retail district Is Just now threatened by the questionable character of houses on Howard street and on Sixteenth street? Do you know that every nigra r store In the city Is'a kindergarten for gambling places where your boy may be Initiated to the gambling habit through the slot machine?" P1,KAD! FOR LIVES OF PTRITY. Rev. Mr. "jaTfdsre Warns Asralnst t'n equal loklna. In the People's church Rev. Chsrles W. Savldge preached from II. Corinthians, vl:14 "Re ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers." "What did the Lord mean by yoke?" asked Mr. Savldge. "He was talking to Christians: and God meant the yoke He has for believers. When we become real children of Ood we wear a yoke. The Bible rays: 'It Is good for a man to bear the yoke while he Is young.' Jesus said, Take my yoke upon you and you shall have rest.' There Is no rest like the rest that comes In the bow with Jesus. It Is the genius and plan of the Lord to yoke us up in the gospel. The time to be yoked Is In youth and we will never lay It off. Jesus gets Into the yoke first. He came for no sham. Ho came to take our burdens from us. Blessed be that person who hears His voice calling us to come and who goes under the yoke with Him. I have told you of the true yoke fellow Jesus. "But I see the devil In the yoke, too. I see his horns; he calls to us to enter and thousands go under his yoke. At first there are followers along the way and nice food and the yoked-wlth-the-devll sees us toll ing In the sun with Christ snd Is pleased at first. Christ's yoke is hard at first. The first unequal yoke the devil tries to put on us ts a bad church one with bad theories and doctrines. Look out for a church with no Bible doctrine or Bible practice. Another unequul yoke that he has Is in business. The devil Is pleased If he can yoke us in bad business. Some men are working Sundays, some keeping books In liquor houses and hating It, some are gambling for grain. I pray to Ood to give us light and strength. "But the unequal yoke does not apply so strongly to the church life, nor to the business life, as to the marriage relation Be not unequally yoked together with un believers. I have married a thousand couples In my ministry and some of the greatest troubles are those we cannot cor rect. Pray to God when you are thinking of entering Into marriage for His direction. I have sn those who have made two alliances, and are worse tangled up. They have tried to be useful In the church but the ghost of the past rises up to hoot at them. In the church, the buslnees, and the family relations let us seek the council and the direction of God." LAIIS CHARACTER OF WASHINGTON. Rev. J. E. II n mm on Says His Life Is Bnsed on Bible Principles. , Rev. J. E. Hummon'a sermon at the Kountse Memorial church last evening was apropos jt the coming anniversary of the birth of Washington and presented many unique and helpful suggestions toward a better balanced and 'more comforting everyday existence as exemplified In the career of the great American. The preacher laid great atress upon the fact that had Washington's life not been lived on the basic principles of the Bible and an emulation of Christ himself, Wash ington would not have been "the father of his country" nor would his name have held the revered and honored place that It doea today. Mr. Hummon made a quotation from the scripture, Proverbs, xll:J, "A good man ob talneth favor of the Lord." the nucleus of his remarks and noted the truth of the Psalm cxl!:: "The righteous shall be In everlasting remembrance." 'To stand In favor with the Lord and be held In everlasting remembrance ought to be and Is. he said, the supreme desire and the highest ambition of every . man who Is In the possession of good common sense, and who knows what Is his highest good. Gorge Washington was one of the grand est characters In the history of the world. His fame Is eternity and his residence cre ation. George William Curtis, one of our notest Journalists and authors, made the sweeping statement that 'the value of Washington to his country transcends that of any other man to any other land." In the study and contemplation of such char acters we feel a stimulation, an Inspiration to a nobler and a better life, a peculiar force which lays hold on us when we read of the achievements of such men and we are led to Inquire into the secret of their peculiar power and personal popularity. These questions naturally come to us In the consideration of the character of Wash ington. His success was based upon char acter, the foundation of which was the Imperishable and Immovable rock Jesus Christ. He stood In favor with God. He was clothed In the white and pure robe of righteousness." Announcements of the Theaters.

Interment at Hoi acpujoae SAYS CZAR WILL CRUSH JAPAN Vies Chancellor Beaiej of University Fre ' dioti BuoceM of Btusia SPEAKS OF EXCELLENCE OF ITS RAILROADS After Tonr of Them He is Convinced They Are Snperlor to the Rail roads of the lalted States. "I am not expressing hope for Russia, but I believe, from what I know of the two nations, that when the time for dealing the blow comes Russia will crush Japan," declared Vice Chancellor Bessey of the t'nlverslty of Nebraska. Dr. Bessey and his son, Ernest, spent some time touring Russia and paid es pecial attention to the railroads of that country. Dr. Bessey was once employed as a machinist in a railroad shop in the United States and therefore has some prac tical knowledge of railroading. Regarding the railroads he said: "The railroads of Russia, apart from the rolling stock, are superior to the railroads of the United States, with the possible ex ception of the Pennsylvania road. When I read accounts to the effect that the rail roads of Russia are inferior to the rail roads of any country I am constrained to believe that the Individual who gives out such Information Is not Informed of the facts. "Aa fsr as the transslbertan railroad Is concerned." said Dr. Bessey, "I did not make a thorough examination of its road bed. I crossed It at several points and from a casual observation that road is built as are other roads In Russia, the same material being used, and It has the ap pearance of the other roads. Russia has spent millions In the construction of rail roads. In my estimation the Immense amount of money has been well spent and each year the roadbeds are being con stantly Improved. Bridges Are Substantial. "The bridges along the roadbed, some of them with great stone arches a third of a mile in length, are not surpassed even by the bridges of the great Pennsylvania. The cuts along the road are protected with solid walls of masonry such aa are seen only in New York City. Russia Is constantly for saking the old for the new. A tunnel through the Caucasus mountains, a most wonderful piece of work, was abandoned and a new tunnel put through ths moun tains because a lower grade was secured. The roads are constructed and have the appearance of the best roads in this coun try, the Iron used being equally as heavy. In nearly every Instance, however, the roads appear more beautiful and show that careful attention is paid In keeping them In first-class condition. "American tourists In Russia get the Idea that the railroads of that country are in ferior because of the Inferiority of the roll ing stock. The rolling stock Is vastly In ferior to our own magnificent Pullmans. In all Prussia I failed to observe a aingle coach that would In any way compare with those of our ordinary trains. "Russian locomotives are not to be com pared with those of America, It is true I saw Baldwin locomotives, but they were of make of a generation ago. The laws of Russia, however, are responsible for the use of these out-of-date engines. The or dinary train does not travel mora than ten to thirteen miles an hour. Upon every en gine is a sign which designates at what rate of speed the train travels. "What Russia needs to make her rail roads equal to those of other countries ts rolling stock, and In my opinion Russia that somewhere. I cannot but feel weary when I hear people aay that Russia cannot get her troops-to the front because of the Inadequate railroad facilities. The entire country is cut up with magnificent military roads, many of whioh never will be used except In cases of emerrenov. From the terminal of a short line In the Caucasus mountains extend two stub lines, one goes to Turkey and one. to Persia and these will be used only In moving troops. in various parts of Russia are similar lines." Thinks Japan Will Lose. Dr. Bessey has an Idea of Russia and Russian civilisation considerably different from that entertained by many students of history, ahd while not expressing hope for Russian success in her present struggle wth Japan, he believes the smaller nation will be crushed. nen Russia Is ready to strike," said Dr. Bessey, "In my opinion the latest im proved locomotives will be put upon these magnificent roads, troops will be rushed to the front and a decisive blow will be struck." Of the treatment accorded travelers by Russian officials. Dr. Bessey spoke In the Highest terms. "I expected to see the Russian of the car toon, he said. "The man with a vlclou face and of uncouth appearance. Instead I round Just the opposite. A few of the offl clals I saw wore beards, but none of them had that vicious appearance for which I was looking. I found them on every occa sion most Obliging and ummmnHiHim Frequently we asked policemen on the street for Information and directions and not one of them but who gave me a re epectful answer. Once when I Inquired of a policeman the way to the American lea-a tlon he replied that he did not know where It was, but directed me a block away to the ponce neadquarters. where I might secure tne information. Before I reached the head quarters the policeman ran after me and pointed out the legation. He had made in quiry of a passerby. I had been under the Impression th the Russian men spent most of their time in orinklng and the Russian women In smoking, but after a personal observation I desire to deny thla My son and I spent mum lime at a watering place, where If anv place In the empire, these Dractlces would be Indulged In. During our entire stay In that place we did not sea a m Intoxicated snd saw only two women smok ing. From their appearance theae women I would Judge, belonged to the naaan class. On hoard ship we became acquainted aim tne daughter of a Russian Judge of m. i-etersnurg, a most hlrhiv ,,,.. woman, who had spent much time In travel in tne empire. She told me that the alrht of a woman smoking In Russia was a most unusual one. TRIES TO MISLEAD A GIRL rwptala Mostrn to Effect His Plot.
