ALL. QROCERS AND DRUfJdlSTS
SOCIAL EVIL TO BE OUSTED r
Ministerial Union Decides to Enter on a
Crusade Against Vice.
MATTER DISCUSSED AT MONTHLY SESSION
Uembere Who Ilitt Walked Through
rrooerlbed District Tell of the
Coadltlona They Observed
' It Is possible that Omaha church people
may declare a special blockade of the
tenderloin. Such a thing waa done In Los
Angeles, where the people arose with mob
violence and camped in the streets of sin,
praying and singing, and by the very
power of numbers and the force of en
durance discouraged the people ot inc
half world and their friends, and In the
end made possible legal measures which
wiped out the flaunting headquarters ol
Action along this line was brought up
for consideration Monday at the monthly
meeting of the Omaha Ministerial union
by the receipt of a letter from Dr. C.
Kendall, general secretary of the National
Purity conference, who Is planning a trip
through the cities of this part of the
country during May, and who wishes to
come to Omaha and meet tbe local divines
la a brotherly conference which will lead
to a series of meetings aimed at the socinl
evil. After a long discussion a committee
of five ministers wus named to consider
the advisability of opening such a cum
palgn at this time.
Dr. T. V. Moore's Conclusions.
"Butte is generally considered the worst
town in the United States," said llev.
T. V. Moore of Westminster Presbyterian
church, "but Butte does not approach
Omaha. We have here one of the most
shameful exhibitions anywhere. Young
boys are In the habit of riding through
the streets on their wheels where they may
litfurn In this flaring school. I am not one
o? those who think that sin Is better when
It covered up. A young man in the rail
way headquarters. In speaking of It, said
we should take shotguns and clean the
place out, lie was extreme, of course, but
we should take some action."
Dr. Moore explained how he had hap
pened to pass through the streets of the
burnt district one cold winter night to
learn for himself the truth of these stories.
He said he was accosted at least fourteen
times. He said the women were in the
evening dress of social life, or In a worse
Dr. Hubert C. Herring of the First Con
gregational church endorsed these senti
ments. He told of the campaign in
Los Angles where "they had the 'crib'
systsji, more of it, but no worse than we
have here Id Omaha." He said the effort
there had ridded the California city of its
open flaunting disgrace.
Re. A. 8. C. Clarke of Lowe Avenue
Presbyterian church said he had never
seen any of these things, did not go to
that part of the city. He said the vice
was located In a district to which the evil
persons are forced to go.
A Council Bluffs delegate said It was not
necessary to go to the burnt district to see.
He said any one riding back and forth
on the Council Bluffs cars as he did could
see any day women running about the
streets In a half-naked condition.
Dr. Herring took exception to the remark
of Dr. Clarke about not visiting the part
of town under discussion, as In some man
ner reflecting en himself and Dr. Moore.
He said it was the business of the ministers
to know about this source of pollution so
as to rotect the boys and cover it up.
Dr. Dntcher Knows It Too.
"I, too, have passed through these
abominable streets," said Dr. S. D. Dutcher
of the First Christian church.. "I can
bear testimony to the accuracy of every
thing that has been said about these
things; and much worse could be said too.
Then there are the men who hang around
the borders of this part of town commer
cial travellers or pimps who often look
fairly respectable to the eye of the unwise
boy, whom they entice Into the haunts
of sin. Before I came to this city I heard
about It through a brother who had been
here In evangellstlo work. He said to
me. 'the immorality there. is the worst
th'ng I ever saw.' "
Rev. B. F. Fellman of Grace Paptlst
church ventured the remark that the mem
bers of . the union are subject to these
attacks about every three years. He said
they create some commotion In the papers
and end by forgetting it all. He moved
that a committee of five be appointed to
consider the advisability of making a sus
Dr. Herring thought the bluster of the
ministers had had a good deal of effect.
"We often accuse ourselves of bluster and
accomplishing nothing by It," he said. "This
Is, I think, too much modesty on our part.
I think our bluster accomplishes something.
I see by the morning papers that a personal
liberty league has been formed to fight the
blggots and cranks who are making this
town so deadly moral that they are hurting
business. Our bluster has had enough ef
fect to make them think It worth while
