Rt. Jthn CreMwell of Wyoming Preaches
Tw Bermotn in Omaha.
v. Dr. K. R. t nrr , nironrlni on
"Seeriaee," Asserts Ihf strength
of Maa Rests in Ilia
Rev. John Cresswell, th cowboy preacher
of Arvada, Wyo, preahd Sunday morn
ing and evening at the People's church.
A large congregation was present both
times to hear the man who " renverted
by Rev. Charles W. Kagldge five years ago
when he came to Omaha with a loud of rat
tle and accidentally happened Into the
Feople's church while on a spree.
The "cowboy preacher," a griy-halred
man. has spent his life punching cattle
In the Panhandle of Texas and on the
plains of Kansas and Wyurr.lng. He Is
still strong and vigorous and expects to
live a good many years to spread the
gospel among his old camp-mates. His
territory embraces a stretch of WO miles
along the Powder river in Wyoming and
Montana, one of the biggest cattle districts
of the west. Hi every town saloons and
gambling houses are In evidence, but there
are no churches. Mr. Cresswell Is the
only preacher along the river. He has
no regularly organized churches and asks
no money of the people to whom he
The reformed cowboy Is a great religious
power in the cattle country. Not long ngo
he Instituted a revival at Clenrmont, W'yo.,
and aout half the people in the town pro
fessed religion. The report as It first came
to Omaha said that the whole town was
convened, but upon wr'tlng to the "cowboy
preacher." Mr. Savldgn learned that the
story had been exaggerated "by 10" per cent.
Mr. Cresswell finds his way to the heart
of the uncouth cowpuncher where an
Omahu preacher would fail, fnpollshed In
manner, himself, and lacking In education
on the fine points of grammar, rhetoric
and logic, to a congregation of cowboys
he seems like one of themselves. At the
same time he has a good voice and an
earnestness of manner which carries con
viction with every word. It Is said that
the cowboys frequently ride fifty miles to
hear '.t'.m.
In the sermons yesterday, Mr. Cress
well declined to talk of himself. In the
morning sermon he tulked of the Kplrit
of God and what It does for man. After
telling of the struggle with sin and the
triumph of the Spirit In taking from the
heart carnality and love of worldly pleas
ures, he summed up the works of the
Spirit by saying:
"And when the love of worldly pleasures
is gone, and when the attention Is no longer
bent continually on the attainment of
worldly riches, then in the heart is es
tablished peace, the peace that passclh
all understanding, peace that Hows like
a river."
Speaks of "Mural Cripples" at llan
fiiiii Park Church.
Judge I.ouls A. Herka was the speaker
at the fifth o' the scries of "lay sermons"
given at the Hanscom Park Methodist
church last night under the auspices of the
Brotherhood During his experience us a
police magistrate Judge Hersa bus acquired
a knowledge of the submerged classes
which perhaps fits him better to speak on
his chosen subject than any other man in
Omaha. His subject was "Moral Crip
ples." His talk showed that he has made a
thorough study of the different types of
men and women, not only those who
habitually are before the bar of Juatlce In
police court, but be has u knowledge of
human nature In all of Its classes.
"I have Heen wives pleading with their
husbands not to do things which would
bring them before, the police court, and I
have seen mothers and sisters l-gglng a
brother and a son to keep away from the
paths of wrong-doing, and that brother
and son would listen to the pleading and
promise to do better, but as soon as he was
out of hearing of his mother and sister he
would go straight hack to bis former life
and perhaps In a day or two he would be
brought back to be tried on a similar
charge, or, perhaps, a worse one.
"There are professionals in crime as well
as In any other lines. There are men who
confine themselves to petit thievery, and
there are those who make a practice of
committing crime on a larger scale, and
there are those who make a practice of
robbing houses and confine themselves to
this work alone. All these have to be dealt
with according to the law and punished
according to the gravity of their offenses.
"It has often been said that publicity is
a preventative of crime, and In some in
stances It Is, hut In a great many cases
the men before the court prefer u great
deal of publicity rather than not. And it
Is not the severity of punishment that de
ters many from commltcng ureater crimes,
but It is the certainty of the punishment
which will make them think more than
ones before committing a graver offense."
Her. Dr. Curry Dwells on Need of
Sacrifice In Nervier.
"Let no man offer to Clod that which
costs him nothing," whs the theme of a dis
course on "Sacrifice" delivered by Rev.
E. R. Curry at the Calvary Baptist church
Bunday .morning. The beautiful church
was well filled In spite of the heat, a
quartet taking the place of the chorus
"God judges man not by what he says,
but by the spirit that lies behind his
deeds. A man Is not saved by his might,
but the strength of a man Is In his Uod.
Iavld made a great mistake when he
numbered the people of Israel. David had
left God out of the count and was rely
ing upon human resources. The Iird re
sented this and sent a pestilence that car
ried away 70,000 of the people of Israel.
David saw the folly of his ways when he
aw so many of his people wiped out In
such a short space of time.
"David tried to Inculcate In his people thst
broad doctrine that no offering Is an offer
ing unless accompanied by a saninVe.
None are good unless they are costly. Ab
raham gave the most costly possession that
he had when he offered his son."
Pr. Curry gave numerous Instances that
tie had known of splendid sacrifices on the
part of good people. He said that there
should be no Christian effort unless ac
companied by sacrifices.

FYom present Indications there Is likely
to be a hitch In the launching of the new
Colored Presbyterian church of Omaha.
At least tinder the administration of Rev.
John Andrew Pope. A.B. B.D. Such are
the natural deductions from the proceed
ings held at Iwe Avenue Presbyterlar
church Sunday afternoon.
Immediately following the regular devo
tional exercises of the afternoon, at which
Rev. Dr. Pope preached, from the text
of John iii:6. Mr. W. J. Johnson, one ol
the best known and highly esteemed col
ored men of Omaha, and one of the leaders
In the, movement for the organisation of
the cfiurrh, stated that he had, from the
start, been deeply Interested In the new
movement and had hoped to see It succeed,
but from recent developments he was satis
fled It could not succeed under the leader
ship of Rev. Dr. Tope. He said:
"What I am about to say pains me very
much, but my duty an a Christian and a
Presbyterian impels me to speak very
Wrons Man Xow Present.
"There Is one person connected with this
organization whom I am satisfied from my
own knowledge and information is not
the right man for this work. He is present
at this time and what I have to say I wish
to say In his presence."
Rev. Dr. Pope here Interrupted Mr.
Johnson with the remark:
"Go on, Mr. Johnson, and say what you
Intend to say. Speak out so that the people
here will undeiguuul you."
"That is exactly what I Intend to do," re
sponded Mr. Johnson. "You, Mr. Pope,
are the man to whom I refer. Several days
ago a social was to be held at the home
of one of our members In the Interest of
this organization. It had been formally
announced, and you were, I. believe, to
be present. However, nobody came. At
the time, 1 was sick In bed. A short while
after, my son came to me and told me he
was on a Twenty-fourth street car and
saw you on that car and that you were
intoxicated. I asked him it he could not
be mistaken, and he Insisted that he was
not, that he knew you quite well, and he
repeated a maudlin conversation you had
with the conductor about being put off at
p. certain street, long after you had passed
the street The following morning 1 again
asked my son if he was not mistaken, but
he still Insisted he was .not. It has also
come to the knowledge of some of our
members that you have abruptly entered
their homes, showing them scant courtesy,
and that the women of those homes have
been alarmed by your actions, which were
not at all consistent with the actions of a
Christian minister.
Twice Attempted Suicide.
"I also have learned fioin unquestioned
sources that you have, at least twice, at
tempted suicide since you have been In
the city. That at one time the services
of a doctor had to be invoked and a stom
ach pump was used to pump the poison
from your stomach.
"At another time you went down to
Bellevue and slept out on the iiellevue
campus all night.
"The natural deduction Is that If you are
not strong enough to bear your troubles
without resort to suicide you are hardly
the man to undertake the leadership of a
church and I, fy,r one, cannot countenance
your leadership and must decline to have
anything further to do with you In this
Pope Makes a Heply.
Rev. Dr. Pope in reply to Mr. Johnson
"This Is a personal matter and I have
the right to bear my troubles ill any
iiiunner 1 see ;1t. I have met with many
discouragements, but I am a minister of
the gospel and an ordained minister of
the Presbyterian church and have the
Presbyterian organization back of ma. I
do not deny that 1 was tempted to take
my own life while under great discourage
ment, but even this would not hinder me
from doing God's work. 1 have done
nothing wrong, us God Is my Judge, done
nothing InconslHent with my duty as a
minister. 1 have been Invited Into the
homes of our people freely and have
availed myself of that Invitation."
Dr. J. II. Hutton, the leading colored
physician of the city, also was present
and he confirmed In a general way the
remarks of Mr. Johnson, and said:
Agrees Pope Is Inflt to Lead.
"I am a Presbyterian, have been edu
cated In a Presbyterian school and believe
in the high Ideals of the Presbyterian doc
trine. And while It has been my prayer
and wish since in Omaha to see a Presby
terian church of out race organized here,
I am fully satisfied that you, Mr. Pope,
are not the man to do that work. You
are too weak and vacillating. Personally
I have nothing against you, but as for
assisting In the organization of a Presby
terian church here, I can have nothing to
do with It so long as you are to be its
leader. So 1 am of the opinion that this
matter had best be drop'ed here and now."
Several colored women present spoke In
liko terms and in a measure confirmed re
ports of the discourteous manner in which
Mr. Pope entered their homes.
The Janitor of Lowe Avenue church,
also a colored man, when called upon for
remarks, stated that he had nothing to
' say except that, "as matters had come
to tills head all 1 can say Is that there
will e no more meetings of this organiza
tion held tn this church."
The controversy throughout was carried
on earnestly, but with very little acri
mony. Rev. Dr. Pope had but little to
say In conclusion other than to ask all
the congregation to speak, calling out each
one individually. There were about fifteen
persons present.

"Too Troad to Beer" mt Krusj'a.
The season at the Knig theater was
opened yesterday with two performances
of Lincoln J. Carter's scenic melodrama,
"Too Proud to Beg " In spite of the hot
weather, both afternoon and evening were
marked by n attendance which Indicates
that the people are ready and anxious
to start on a new round of theater going
The theater Is beautiful In Its new ap
pointments, the whole Interior having been
repainted and artistically decorated. New
carpets also are laid In. the aisles. "Too
Proud to Res;" Is a story full of tragic
situations well enough known In Omaha
to need no special Introduction now. It
gives abundant satisfaction both to those
who love to slfth and those who love to
laugh. The Inst curtain still goes down
with the heroine In the arms of the heco
and all are happy except the villains, of
which there are several. Fred Eckert snd
Mrs. Rogers, as husband and wife, natur
ally were of chief Interest In the cast
and are clever In their line. Inspector
Sharp, though not a favorite with the au
dience, was good as a villain. The play
will be given Monday. Tuesday and Wed

Woodward Stork Company Opens.
KANSAS CITY, Aug. U. (Special Tele
gram.) The new Woodward stock company
which is to be the permanent attraction In
the Bur wood theater, Omaha, gave lta first
performances today at the Auditorium
theater to audiences that completely packed
the big Woodward A Burgess Kansas City
playhouse. The stock company's initial pro
duction was Belasco and Fyles' "The Girl
I left Behind Me," which will also probably
be the company's first production at the
Burwood theater. The players In the new
company, most of whom were strangers In
Kansas City, were given an enthusiastic
reception, while the work of Eva Lang,
tho leading woman; Albert Morrison, the
new leading man; Cecil Owen, Dollle Davis,
Frederick Fulton, Harry Long and Grant
Simpson was of the very highest order.
The stock company's opening at the
Auditorium Inaugurated the regular theat
rical season In Kansas City and while the
thermometer registered close to the 9j
mark, standing room was at a premium.
It has been several seasons since Woodward
& Burgess have had a regular stock or
ganization In this city and there was much
curiosity as to . the quality of the new
company. The unanimous opinion was that
the present organzatlon compares favorably
with Its predecessors.
Albert Morrison, playing the leads, was
seen last season In IJebler & Company's
production of "The Christian." He cre
ated a very favorable impression and In
the role of Lieutenant Hawkesworth, re
ceived numerous curtain calls. Cecil Owen
was secured by Manager Woodward In
NeW York. He was in the original Broad
way production of "Old Hledelberg," and
his work In tonight's performance was an
artistic effort as Is seldom seen In stock
work. The play lias been given an elab
orate stage mounting and the battle scene
In the third act evoked the wildest en
thusiasm. The Star will say: "The new Woodward
Stock company scored a big success In Its
Initial performance this afternoon. The
company Is evenly balanced and made up
of capable actors. The production Is mag
nificent and the Indlun attack on an army
post In the third act Is the most thrilling
and reullstlc bit of stage work ever seen
on a local stae.
The Journal says:
"It Is the best acting stock company
ever seen In Kansas City and congratu
lates Omaha In having such an organization
with it for an entire season."
Manager Woodward announced tonight
that the Burwood In Omaha would be
opened September. !!. Either "The Girl I
Left Behind Me" or "A Royal Family"
will be the bill. The company's engage
ment In Kansas City is limited to two
Judge Cooler on Carivaa.
Catherine M. Carlisle, a local artist of
some repute, has given new distinction to
Judge Julius S Cooley by a portrait now
on exhibition in the window of the Beaton
Drug company. Miss Carlisle is decidedly
clever with her brush, and the distinguished
subject of her latest effort has certainly
lost nothing at her hands. The perennial
smile of the well known man of law Is
hinted at rather than limned, yet there Is
no difficulty in finding It lurking In every
lineament of the debonair countenance. In
the prime of life, with many of the Induce
ments that appeal to genius, Judge Cooley
has attracted the enthusiasm of the ar
tistic spirit to make him live again on
canvas as he lives In his dally walks, cour
teous and of exceeding politeness, the
"glass of fashion and the mold of form."
Array Pistol Competition.

crowd was taken around the city In trolley

to which number three were added for the
local committee escorting the visitors. A
number of the easterners enjoyed the city
