RELIGION IS WORTH Cl'LTIVATING
Rev. nr. Potter rleads for More Con
sideration of the Fntore 1,1 fe.
Greater rare and painstaking In matters
Of the spirit as opposed to things of the
world was urged by Rev. O. F. Potter In
his farewell sermon at St. Paul's Kplscopa
church Sunday morning. He has resigned
to take a larger charge, but his new piwt
has not been definitely settled. The para
ble of the rich man and the unjust steward
was used In his discourse.
"The conclusion to be drawn from the
words of the preacher Is somewhat start
Ifng." said he. "It Is to the effect that If
persona professing religion only gave as
much care and diligence to religious mat
ters as worldly men give to business af
rairs all would be well with them In thlh
life and hereafter. The prudence, foresight
and effort of the business man In his af
fairs la held up as an example for Chris
Uans In their affairs.
"Men rise early In the morning' and
itudy matters of temporal concern to the
last Item, but they never stop to read the
two greatest books In the world, the Bible
and the book 6f common prayer. Women
lose alght of more Important things In the
desire to break Into society, to hobnob
with persons of wealth and Influence and
to get Into a higher social class.
"In the atory the name of the steward
Is not given, so that you may write your
name In the Wank. Ood Is the rich man,
Whatever talents and goods you have came
from Him. You are Ills steward and
you da not use all you have to the glory
of Ood and the welfare of man you are
wasteful. You may say that Ood has
given you nothing to be steward of, but
this Is Idle talk. Your bodily health and
strength, your mental faculties, everything
you have, la given to you for a purpose. N
one can escape having an Influence upon
someone else, particularly by example."
TALE FROM AN OMAHA LODGING
Wlerd Story of a llnldap nrakeman
Who (lobbed a Victim Off
Clarence Smedley Thompson tells In Pub
c Opinion some of his tramp expcrVncrs
as Illustrating the attitude of western rntl
roads and towns toward the "hobo." This
story which he tells has In It the germ of a
At the Salv.itlon Army lodging house In
Omaha I on-e chanced to meet a fellow who
had Just come out of nn extreme case of
clubbing at the hands of a brakemnn. The
vagabond was a young Swede of good un-
lcrstamlftig who had been working In the
Kansas harvest fields. Ills clothes and his
manner lifted him out of the ordinary run
if "stakemen." In fact, he showed me let
ters nnd papers that gave him a claim to
some respectability In Chicago, where ne
was going at the time of our meetlnij. He
hud been traveling east with a companion,
but they had lost one another, nnd It was
In relntlng this experience that he men
tioned the subject of clubbing.
'We got on a train In western Kansas."
said the Swede, "where all the brakemen
carried clubs. They were holding tip every
one that had been working In the fields, de
manding $1 n division from each man. We
paid our mnn tl and when he went away I
climbed Into an empty boxcar, while my
chum remained on the bumpers. Pretty
soon the brakemafi came running back and
locking the little end door through which 1
had crnwled he began demanding another ft
from Tom. The fellow evidently got the
idea we were coming away .with a good
sized stake, and he Intended to share In It.
Hut Tom refused to give up, and what do
you suppose the brakeman did then? He
hauled out a club, and, standing above
Tom, said he'd have the money or know
the reason why. At that he hit Tom a clip
over the head. I tried to break open the
little end door, but that was Impossible
without any bar to work with, and there
was none within reach. There waa noth
ing, either, to permit my climbing to the
top of the car out of the open side door
and so I Just had to stand and look on
through a split In the end door. Tom
grabbed at the fellow's legs to pull him
down on the bumpers, but he couldn't reach
far enough, and, besides, every time he put
up his hands, the brakemnn clubbed his
fingers and knuckles. Then the brute aimed
for Tom's head, and cursing him for re
sistance, struck a savage blow. Tom made
another break to get on top of the car. but
the club smashed his fingers, and then,
dizzy, I guess, from the blow on his head,
he Jumped, for all that I could see, to his
own death. I went back looking for him at
the next stop, a distance of some twenty
miles, but I couldn't get any trace of him,
and since then I've been waiting for him
here; but he hasn't shown up, and I haven't
heard any word from him, either."
CONFERENCE ON ESTATE TAX
First of Iti Kind in Nebraska Will Be
Held on Tuesday.
VINSONHALER TO ACT AS APPRAISER
Shonlrf Derision Re Against Appoint
ment of Men to Valne Estates
the Coonty Attorney
Tuesday of this week la the day set for
the holding of the conference on the In
heritance tax law between Judge Vinson
baler, County Attorney Slabaugh and the
executors and attorneys of the estates In
Douglas county which might be liable to
the tax. The matter comes up In this
form because the county attorney has ap
plied to' the county court for the appoint
ment of, appraisers 'of the various estates
subject to the tax under the state law.
This will be the first conference of the
kind ever held In Nebraska and the out
come will be awaited with Interest-
In the case of the estate of Ben B.
Wood, Judge Vlnsonhaler has, as hereto
fore noted In The Bee, declared the state
Inheritance tax law unconstitutional for
the reaaon that It Is not uniform In Its
provisions for taxing Inheritances, collat
eral and otherwise. It Is rather expected
because of this decision that the court will
deny the application for appraisers made
by the county attorney. If this Is done
the latter will then take further measures
to have the point settled, probably by ap
peal to the district court. Should the
county Judge's decision be sustained by
the district court the fight Is certain to
be carried to the state supreme court, and
It may eventually reach the supreme court
of the t'nlted States. This august tribunal
as heretofore sustained an Inheritance
tax Inw enacted in Illinois, but Judge Vln
sonhaler, In his decision, said that the
constitutions of the two states differ on
the matter in Issue.
In Douglas county there are nearly two
score estates that would be taxable, some
for very large amounts. The tax derived
from estates probated since July 1 of this
ear would be at the disposal of the Board
of County Commissioners for the construe

Dr. Sawhlll said In part:
"We are too often confronted with the

SAVATIO ARMY WORK EFFECTIVE
OOleer of Ueneral Booth's Fore
Preaches to Methodists.
Lieutenant Colonel 8cott of the Salvation
Army occupied the pulpit of the Seward
streeet Methodist church Sunday morning
and with koine of his associates led the
service In true Salvation Army style.
Choosing that part of the first verse of
ths 11th chapter of the acts of the Apostles.
"Ys men of Uollllee, why stand you here
gazing Into heaven. This same Jesus will
gain corns to you as you have seen Him
go from you."
"People art wont to say of the Salvation
Army, Why don't they go to work?" If
soma of these people would go the rounds
with the Salvation Army workers for a
short time they would see the work ac
complished and not be heard to make that
remark again. The harvest field Is here
and the door of opportunity open. Go forth
and do something.
"We are not In the same position as the

MAN WAS 1 UNDULY ANXIOUS
Thonaht a Voting; Woman Waa Victim
of Fool Play and Gave Police
A man giving his name as B. F. Johnson
elephoned police headquarters Sunday that
tie entertained grave fears for the safety
of one Miss Goodhart of Twenty-fourth
treet and the city limits. Mr. Johnson
confided to the police his suspicions that
foul play might have figured In the dls
appearance of the young woman. Detec
tives Mitchell and Dunn were detailed on
the case and located Miss Goodhart under
her father's roof.
According to the story telephoned by
Johnson, the parents of the young woman
have wished that she marry the man of
their choice, while the woman entertains
certain well-defined notions on the subject
and. In an unguarded moment, told John
son she would not marry the man in the
case. At least, so Johnson's story goes.
Now, when It came to pass that Johnson
did not see Miss Goodhart for several days
he donned a pair of gum boots and went on
still hunt for the woman, without say
Ing a word to her parents or anyone else
In the north precincts of the city. The
longer the matter pressed on Johnson's
mind the more he thought that foul play
was in the air; so he called up the police
Detectives ifltchell and Dunn started on
the case with a bunch of clues, alt of
which led to a stone wall or up a blind
alley. The Goodhart house was finally lo
cated and It was learned the young woman
had been tome right along.
Johnson said he saw a hack moving at
a rapid rate on North Twenty-fourth street
at an early hour Sunday morning, with a
pair of feet sticking out of the door of
the vehicle; hence he Just concluded there
must have been foul play somewhere, so
It Is reported.
