This church was never dedicated because
it was sold bofore the debt of the church
was raised. Ninety thousand dollars was
paid for the site and 'the church began a
third structure where the cornerstone for
a, new building was laid yesterday.
Atcr the rea(ng of the history the cor

box was first Inserted. This contained pto
tures of the church officers, religious pub
lications, copies of the Omaha dally papers,
some coins and programs of religious serv
ices. "The pastor then addressed the con
gregation, lie auid the laying of the cor
nerstone was an epoch In the history of
Same Old Faith.
"It is true," he said, "the personnel of the
church today is dlffet t than It was in
18C1, when the first cornerstone was laid,
but the members have the same denomina
tional sentiments and faith. It has passed
through many trials, but it still lives. It
has grown and flourished and exerts a defi

It Is located."
Rev. Prank D. Altman, D. D., president

churches so they may do the work of
Christ. We fmind churches as a source of
primitive evangelistic power. We must
have organised eltort. Our method Is to
find a place where, the gospel Is needed and
there prosecute the work. If the church
has any mission at alt It has what It re

That was enough."
BISHOP ADMOMSHES MINISTERS
Dr. Grant Preaches Sermon Directly
Bishop Abram Grant of Indianapolis of
the African Methodist Episcopal church oc
cupied the pulpit at the church of that
denomination at Eighteenth and Webster
streets yesterday morning. He preached
from the text, James 1, 22: "But be ye
doers of the word and not hearers only."
The sermon was directed ostensibly to
the new candidates for ordination as minis
ters, and the ministers in general attending
the conference which closes today.
"James had oversight of the church at
Jerusalem," said Bishop Grant, "and the
care of those who had fallen away from
the church. It Is very necessary that every
minister or candidate for the ministry
should be able to control his tongue. Jesus
was the first In sincerity among men. Con
version without sincerity is an awful thing.
To believe that a minister is capable of
telling lies destroys his efficiency. Harken
to the word of the Lord. Keep aloof from
covetousness. Do the work you have to do
In the field where you are placed. Seek
not to better your purse with the thought
that you can bettor your condition In the
way In which God has assigned you.
"Do not enter the ministry with the pur
pose of making money out of it. Religion
Is not a money making enterprise. Worship
God without the thought of solf. He will
take care of that When a man has failed
to make a home for himself after fifty
years he cannot fool me any longer. If
he was deserving of a better place he would
have got it before that.
"Let me hope that at our next year's
conference there will not be so many re
ports of 'no souls saved.' As ministers of
God It la your duty to love every one lu
your enure'-. Read, see, walk with God.
Talk with Jesus."
President Vernon of the Wesleyanunl.
verslty at Quindaro, Kan., lectured yester
day afternoon at the church, and Rev.
Lewis Parks preached to a large congrega
tion last evening. The conference will close
this morning and the conference appoint
ments for the ensuing year will be an
nounced. M'CABE BEARS ITS NEW PASTOR
West End Methodist Pulpit Filled by
Rev. J. M. McDonald.
Rev. J. M. McDonald, the conference ap
pointee to the McCabe Methodist church,
preached his first sermon under his new
pastorate yesterday morning. His text was
from Matthew xly:18, 18. The theme of
the sermon was Christ as the corner
stone of the church, the sure foundation
and one to be relied upon.
"Some claim," said Mr. McDonald, "that
the true church is founded upon Peter,
others that it la based on the apostles, the
existence of a great truth and on the
Christ Himself. There are scores and
scores of religions and beliefs, but wo
know the the real church Is that one
of which Christ Is the cornerstone, and
we know that it is a safe and enduring
foundation against which even the gates
of hell shall not prevail. It has even been
useless to attempt to stifle the growth
and advancement of the true religion.
Martin Luther, from his dungeon, sent
forth the German translation of the Bible
and aided greatly the reformation. Paul,
from his prison, wrote his marvelous epis
tles and B'-myan's 'Pilgrim's Progress,' also
written within the walls of a Jail, where
it was hoped the author would be silenced,
ha taught many a one the way to the
true religion. It is our blessed privilege
to approach the throne of God through
the Intercession of Christ and plead for
His mercy. Through Him we shall gain
admittance to heaven and of knowing God."
NEW PASTOR AT SEWARD STREET
Rev. J. D. Priest Preaches Ills Initial
Rev. J. D. Priest, the new pastor at
Seward Street Methodist church, preached
his first sermon there Sunday morning. Ills
discourse was an exhortation for Chris
Uans to present their bodies and minds as
living sacrifices to God, not hesitating to
give the best gifts and talents for the
cause of Christ
"Consider the tolls and sacrifices of
Jesus, said Rev. Mr. Priest. "Undoubt
edly His palms were calloused with labor
and He was In a position to sympathize
with all those who labor. In giving us
His body as a sacrifice He demands as
much from us In turn. No matter what
our station in life, we can always find
some way of making our bodies do the Lord
a service. Within a block of many of our
homes there may be some sorrow, distress
or desolation waiting for us to bring a
message of help and cheer.
"In sacrlnclng the best gifts within us
we do what God demands. If we have a
special talent It should be laid on God's
altar and the best possible use of It made
for Him. This Is a world of skepticism,
doubt and ignorance, and the best trained
and keenest Intellects are required to com
bat these obstaclea There la need of the
Christian intellect everywhere.
"Our devotion should be whole hearted
and our sacrifice should have no reserva
tion. We should be willing to give all
we have for Ood and In His service in such
a manner ij we are called upon to do."

FEES TO GRAIN ELEVATORS
Case f Competing Lines Against Union
Pacifio Before Commerce. Commission.
VERDICT IS NO LAW WAS VIOLATED
Allowances to Peavey A Co. of One
and One-Fourth Cents a Hun
dred Transfer Held
It Is not the office of the Interstate Com
merce commission to destroy competition.
If a railroad suffers through the sharp
competition of a rival line. It has no re
dreFs except to overcome the situation by
meeting the unfavorable conditions created
by the competitor.
This in substance is the position takm
by the commission In Its report upon the
qucntlon of allowances to grain elevators.
In a complaint against the t'nlon Pacific
Railroad company it was charged by com
petitors of the lino that the road paid li
cents per hundred pounds for having grain,
which It hauls Into Omaha, transferred
through the elevators controlled by Peavey
& Co. The competitors of the Union Pacllia
also complain that the rate is excessive
and too high to permit successful competi
tion nnd the" matter was brought to the
attjntlon of the commission, which has de
cided the price paid by the company la not
The Union Pacific entered Into contracts
with Peavey & Co. under which the firm
erected grain elevators at Council Bluffs
and Kansas City for tho transfer of grain,
to be paid for at the rate named. Peavsj
& Co. are large buyers and shippers of
grain and control a large number of coun
try elevators. The commission takes the
position that In entering into a contract
with the elevator company the railroad
acted in good faith and that the facts in
dicate the charge of 1 cents per'hundred
is not excessive for the service of trans
ferring grain from its cars to other roads.
The complainants held that If the arrange
ments with the Union PaclSc were not de
clared illegal they would be compelled to
make similar allowances at transfer points
en their lines.
Compensation Not I'nreavaonable.
The commission held the compensation
for the service Is not unreasonable, that
the Union Paclflc Is entitled to perform the
work of transfer or hire It done by others,
and that it Is not guilty of wrong doing
if those employed to do the work are aided
In another line of business as the buying
and selling of grain. It further held that
any injury or detriment resulting to rival
carriers under the arrangement with the
elevator company is something which the
law does not seek to prevent.
The lines competing with the Union Pa
clflc In Nebraska are the Burlington, the
Rock Island and the Northwestern. These
roads have lines extending east from
Omaha to Cicago. The Burlington and tho
Northwestern have also lines connecting
Nebraska points with Chicago which do not
pass through Omaha. The Milwaukee, Wa
bash and Great Western have eastern lines
extending to Chicago which do not go west
of the river. A large amount of the grain
destined for eastern markets is brought
into Omaha by the Union Paclflc. From
the river the grain has to be carried to its
dlstlnallon by connecting- lines. If the
grain Is nottransferred at this point, the
company must relinquish possession of its
cars at the river and can get them back
again only after prolonged and indefinite
absence. In this way the railroad would
be deprived of the use of euch ears and
could not know when they would again be
available for its own shippers. For this
and other reasons It Is highly Important
for the Union Paclflc to provide for the
transfer of the grain to other cars at the
Missouri river terminal, to secure the
prompt release of Its equipment.
To Meet This Requirement.
To meet this requirement the company
had to arrange to have the transfer of
grain made by its own employes or con
tract with others to perform the service.
The latter course was 'adopted and an ar
rangement was entered Into with Frank
H. Peavey of Minneapolis, who was to
construct an elevator, for which the com
pany provided the land. The railroad was
also to provide necessary yard room and
maintain a system of side tracks. All
grain originating upon the lines of the
Union Paclflc company was to be consigned
to the Peavey elevators and the elevator
company was to charge not over 1 cents
per 100 pounds for transferring the grain.
After ten years it was .to charge not to
exceed 1 cent per 100. The -railroad was
to do all switching free of charge. The
railroad was also to receive and deliver
cars of connecting lines as cheaply as It
handled the work for other local elevators,
the cost not to exceed -6 per cent of Its
Investment in any one year, the total cost
to be apportioned between the several lines
on the wheelage basis.
The elevator company agreed to transfer
through its elevators grain delivered by
the railroad, the grain tendered by the
company to have first consideration and the
cars to be promptly released. The com.
pany was also to store grain received
from the railroad for twenty-four hours
free of charge. Similar contracts were en
tered into at Kansas City, where the com
pany conducts a grain elevator. The Inter
ests of Peavey & Co. were assigned to the
Omaha Elevator company before the Coun
cil Bluffs elevator was finished, but the
conditions, of the contract with the rail
road company were not affected by this
What the Contention Was.
The contention was that undue prefer
ence Is secured by the elevator company.
which works to the disadvantage and
prejudice of the other roads. It was shown
by the testimony before the commission
that Peavey & Co. have some 4S0 country
elevators in the states of North and South
Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska and
Kansas. They control the elevators at
Council Bluffs and Kansas City and are
large buyers of grain upon the Union Pa
cific system. The firm handles fully 60
per cent of the grain shipped from Union
Paclflc stations, which Is transferred
through the Peavey elevators and for
which service the company receives 1U
cents per 100 pounds from the railroad com
pany. There are some shovel transfers
for shipments not controlled by the eleT
vator firm and which are accommodated
without the necessity of passing through
the elevators. While the amount of grain
varies greatly in different years, some ides
of the amount transferred was shown In a
statement furnished the commission at the
hearing. Between July, 1898, and May,
19u3, 12,829,3il bushels were transferred at
Kansas City by the elevators, and 28,839.631
bushels were transferred st Council Bluffs
between July, 1K'J6. and May, 190S.
Charge ot Unlawful Relation.
In view of these and other facts brought
out at the hearing it was charged that ths
Union Paclflo arrangement with the eleva
tor companies Is preferential and unlawful.
This charge is finally based upon the claim
that the contract price for transferring the
grain Is exorbitant and unreasonable, that
It Is much greater than the necessary cost
for performing the service and that there
fore It has actual but Indirect effect of a
prohibited concession or rebate to Peavey
& Co., because they are the shippers of the
grain thus transferred at a profit through
their own elevators.
It was shown by the books of the elevator
company that tho total earnings of the
company at Council Bluffs for the .transfer ,
of grain from July, 1S99, to June, 1903. were
1157.639.96, while the expenses of operating.
Including taxes, insurance and repairs,
were 1110.468.30. The aggregate profit was
$47,171.68. or a yearly average of tl 1.792 91.
The chief traffic officer of the Chicago
Great Western stated that elevators were
operated by that road at Kansas City and
St. Joseph at a cost, not including taxes
nor expenses of general management, of
1 1-s cents per hundred pounds, and that he
would be very willing, for reasons which he
gave to the commission, to pay an inde
pendent company 14 cents for the same
service. Other facts were disclosed to show
the allowance paid to Peavey & Co. is not
unreasonable. It was shown that the
Transmlsslssippl Grain company leases nnd
operates the elevator at Council HlufTs,
owned by the Union Elevator company.
The stockholders of the company are the
Union Paclflc, Northwestern, Burlington,
Rock Island, Milwaukee and the Wabash.
Each has only a sixth Interest In the ven
ture, and the price the Elevator company
receives Is the same compensation as the
Teaveys, a fact which was regarded as
showing that the rate paid by the Union
Paclflc is not excessive.
Not More Tbnn Others.
It also was shown that Peavey & Co. do
not pay more for grain than other com
panies. It was shown no complaint had
been made against the firm by rival dealers
although there are shippers of grain from
Union Paclflc stations other than Peavey &
Co. Of the 202 country elevators on the
Union Pacific In Nebraska only seventy
one are operated by Peavey & Co. The full
ure of the competing companies to make
known their grievances to the commission
was regarded as evidence that they did not
consider the transfer charges paid by the
Union Pacific as an undue preference for
Peavey Sc Co. In Its report the commission
Taking Into account the whole evidence
bearing upon the question and giving due
consideration to all the factB disclosed, wa
are unable to And that the amount paid
Peavey Co., for, transferring grain, Is
unreasonable under the circumstances sur
rounding the Union Pacific. No reason Is
suggested why the arrangement should not
be presumed to be Just and fair, and noth
ing has been shown In our Judgment to
overcome that presumption. It may be
that the needs of the Union Paclflc do not
require such large and expensive elevators
and that the necessary transfers could be
effected by other means and with a smaller
expenditure. Even if that be so, and at
most It Is quite uncertain, we would not
be warranted in finding the carrier guilty
of wrongdoing unless something substan
tial "appeared, which we do not perceive,
tb Impeach the honesty of the transaction.
So far aa we can see these transfer con
tracts were made In good faith for the
legitimate protection of the Union Pacific,
and there la failure of proof of any un
lawful purpose connected with the arrange
ment. The Burlington says It would be
willing to make the transfer without charge
but that, of course, would be upon condi
tion that it secured the carriage of the
transferred grain. To obtain the traffic
and consequent earnings It might very
likely afford to stand by Its offer, but that
Is far from proving that the price paid to
Peavey & Co. exceeds the actual or rea
sonable cost of performing the service.
Expense of Shovel Transfer.
Some testimony waa given as to the fea
sibility and expense of what Is termed the
shovel transfer. The commission holds this
method may appear cheaper under favor
able conditions and for a limited volume
of business, but for the extensive grain
traffic of the Union Paclflc It Is doubtful
economy and unsatisfactory. The report of
the commission then points out that the
complainants In the case are competitors
of tho Union Paclflc and are operating In
the same general ' territory. These com
petitors charge the compensation paid to
Peavey & Co. Is excessive and unreason
able and that It has the effect of an illegal
discrimination in favor of that firm and
against other shippers of grain.
With' reference to this aspect of the case
the commission calls attention to the fact
that the conditions at Kanfas City are un
like those at Council Bluffs. Kansas City
is a grain market-A large portion of the
grain carried to that point Is sold there.
It actually changes ownership there after
the manner of a grain market, although
most of It Is then taken on to other des
tinations. For this reason the grain at
Kansas City becomes subject to competi
tion between all the lines leading easterly
and southerly from that pulnt. Some, of
these lines do not extend west of the Mis
souri river. On this account It Is said the
roads bringing grain to Kansas City lose
control of It, so to speak, at that point
and the transportation Js continued by
connecting lines. The originating rpads
which may have lines extending to Chi
cago have no advantage over roads which
terminate at Kansas City for this reason:
Because of the general buying and selling
which takes place there and because
through rates to the east are the same as
the combined rates in and out of Kansas
City. It was testified by offlcluls of Atchi
son, Burlington and Missouri PacUlc, whose
lines go clear through, that the amount
of grain taken out of Kansas City was
small compared to the amount which they
carry to Kansas City In the first Instance.
Consequently, they say, they are under
as much compulsion to transfer grain at
Kansas City for the release of their equip
ment as is the Union Paclflc at Its eastern
terminals. Therefore they hold they must
make the same allowances and provide the
same facilities for grain transfer.
The report of the commission says
whether this be true to tho extent claimed
Is not altogether certain, but It may be
assumed to be so without affecting the
legal question involved, because in our view
of the law the materiality of the fact Is
Can Commission Interfere?
The report says that granted the allow
ance to Peavey A Co. places these other
carriers and grain dealers on their lines at
some commercial disadvantage and that it
Introduces an element of competition, on
what theory can the commission Interfere
so long as the obligations of the Union
Pacific to its own shippers are not disre
garded? It is urged by the other carriers
or through New Mexico.

claiming to be In the same position as the
Union Paclflc that refusal to condemn the
transfer charges paid by that company
will oblige them to make similar allowances
for like services. This apprehension, tho
commission holds, may be well founded.
but It Inquires to know how this fact alter.
or affects the legal rights of the respond
ent The commission In Its report holds
that no violation of the law has been
tablished and says In conclusion:
Under existing conditions the transfer of
grain through elevators at various points
seems to be a virtual necessity, both to
the rmln ear carrier and the srAln dealer
but we are not unmindful of the fact that
the persons to whom the elevator allow
ances are made apiear to control a very
large share of the grain business. As a
Dractlcal matter this may be unavoidable.
nor Is It necessarily unlawful, but the
methods aoopten ana now in vogue in tnis
regard are liable to abuse and therefore
not to be encouraged. In this case, how
ever, wo are persuaded upon the facts dis

statute have not been disregarded, and
that the respondent carrier entitled to a

REV. ANDERSON U1DS FAREWELL
Large Congresratlon at Calvary Bap
tist Greets Him.
At the Calvary Baptist church last even
ing a large congregation heard Rev.
Thomas Anderson preach his last sermon
In this field. His text was taken from the
First Epistle of Peter, "The Shepherd of
your souls." He said In part:
"It Is marvelous what a variety of needs
center around the Incarnate Christ. In
exhaustible are the titles by which He is
known and by which He describes Him
self in the Bible. Our love and enthusi
asm for Him has moved us to heap still
more titles upon Him. Orpheus. Orpheus,
with his matchless playing, charms the
most savage creature. Christ, with His
love, charms the world. Holiest among
the mighty and mightiest amcng the holy,
He turns the stream of the centuries out
of its channel and still governs the ages.
"Jesus Is the Invisible God, coming Into
the world and reducing Himself to the di
mensions of man. Ot all the names by
which He is known In the Bible, none Is
so wondrous and rich as this one of our
text. All the beauty, grace and truth of
the other terms are involved in this one.
In It Is centered the content of the world.
We miss some of the subllmest of Biblical
metaphor owing to our Ignorance of Ori
ental expression and thought. He lived
for Ills sheep and into His flock He takes
the whole world. He talks to His sheep
in their own way and they talk to Him.
He calls them by name. He does not drive;
He leads. He goes before, not behind.
"Man cannot rest with God an invisible
being, holding Himself aloof, inknown and
unknowable, so He comes to us as the
Shepherd. Ho comes not to destroy the
dreams, the hopes and the religions for
which man has yearned. Christ is not an
iconoclast. He comes to show the truth
of the things for which man has yearned
and dreamed. Man had erected temples,
but some of them had Imperfections and
Christ came to point them out. He re
moves from them the dust of the centuries
and opens the windows of men's souls.
Only eternity can tell how He did it. He
breathes love because he is love. Love
and gentleness are characteristics of tho
Shepherd. He points to heaven and says
to the world, 'I am the way, I am the
Shepherd.' He has given us a picture in
the flesh and blood that we may see Him.
From the cross of Calvary He looks down
upon the world and forgets His own suffer
ing In the longing to lift the world out of
Its sorrow and Its sin."
