Iter. J. Mlnot ravage Speaks on Hnes
Wlon of the Federation of
NKW YORK. Oct. ST. Rev. J. Mlnot Sav
ase preached today In the Church of the
Messiah on the "Federation of Churches
and the Universities." Dr. Savage prefaced
his seYnion with: "It seems to me fitting
that we should know and help others to
know whom the federation of churches Is
willing to associate with." and after enum
erating the names of many famous men
and women who have been adherents of the
Unitarian doctrine, continued: "These men,
who have been famous In every department
of human service and human life, are not
to be allowed to be presented In the na
tional conference of the federation of
churches. This Is not a new move. For
four or flveyears there' has existed In New
York a city, and I think also a state, fed
eration of churches, and the Unitarian
churches have been cordially welcomed and
fellowshipped In all these movements and
meetings. I have been asked to contribute
money, and I have done It every year. A
gentleman in Boston, a Unitarian, con
tributed $30,000. which wa used here in
New York to build an Episcopal church. I
have no fault to find with that provided
there Is enough cordial fellowship, and co
operation to go found. It does not seam
to me that It 1 1. quite fair to have It all
one-sided. I the federation to take the
position hereafter that haa been occupied

What Is that? They are persistent beggars,
they are ready to take our money on all
occasions, get- It all If they can, but the

thing whatever to do with their , manage

MOSCOW. Oct. 22 Traffic on seven of the
nine main trunk arteries of commerce ra
diating from Moscow waa completely par
alysed today by the railroad strike and the
commercial heart of Russia has been hut
off from all communication with the rest
of the empire except the narrow lection to
the northwestward. Including St. Peters
burg and the Baltic provinces. Though the
government has ordered the railroad battal
ion of the army to proceed to Moscow and
take the places of the strikers for the pur
pose of restoring traffic, the revolutionists,
by a sudden and unexpected blow, have
shown their ability to lay their hand on
the throats of the nation' commercial life.
The employes of four railroads struck to
day and only the lines running over the
Nlcholal road to St. Petersburg and over
the Wlnduu tc Rybinsk road to Riga and
other Baltic ports are open. Traffic Is at a
standstill on the Kazan line and the line to
Yaroslav and Archangel. The strikers to

An Important development today was the
strike on the Brest-Lltovsk road, which
runs to Smolensk, Minsk and Warsaw, and
carries International traffic from Moscow to
Germany, Austria and other part of Eu
rope. Though the worker In the shop of
this road struck yesterday, the trains con
tinued to run until S o'clock this afternoon
when the engineer and firemen drew the
fires and deserted the engines. Communi
cation with point abroad, however, ia still
open by way of St. Petersburg and Pakoff,
During the morning a crowd of strikers
proceeded to the freight station of the
Kursk road and let off the steam of eight
engines, drove away the guards and forced
the employe to cease work. Traffic over
the road thereupon stopped. Later tlie
strikers were attacked by a crowd com
posed of the rougher elements of the popu
lation, but order was finally restored by
Cossacks. Otherwise no special disorders
have been reported.
Impede Grain Movement.
The strike, coming at this tite. 1 apt to
seriously' cripple the work of relief in the
famine stricken provinces and also to im
pede the movement of this year's grain
crop as the railroads, even under normal
conditions, are not able to -keep the grain
crop moving promptly. Official reports
show that 10,284 loaded tars were awaiting
removal , on October in various Motions
and that the' grain and coal handling dis
tricts are dally increasing" their accumula
tions at the railroad stations. .
Great suffering Is certain If the requisite
supplies of grain and other provisions can
not be forwarded Into the famine-stricken
districts where up to the present the work
of relief ha not been carried out successfully.

LINCOLN. Oct. !. (Special.) Delegates
to the National Prison association heard the
annual sermon this morning delivered iiy
Rev. H. C. Swearlngen at the First Pies-
byterlan church, attended services at the
penitentiary chapel this afternoon and to
night listened to short talks by prominent
ciUxena and visitor at St. Paul's Metho
dist church. Several of the visitor this
morning occupied pulpits In the various
churche and spoke of the alms of the as
sociation and Its work. So successful has
been the meeting so far that at the conclu
sion of the day' proceedings National Sec
retary Milligan said:
The meeting 1 starting out fine and 1
believe we will have one of the most suc
cessful and beneficial meetings w have
ever held.. Not a single hitch has occurred
we nave never had a bettor beginning."
A number of delegates arrived during the
night and this morning, among whom was
President Garvin of Wethei field, Conn., who
was tied up for four days owing to wash
outs on the railroads, and who has spent
the last four or five nights In a berth on
the train. The president was about tired
out when he reached Lincoln, but he was
able to attend the service this morning,
and he wears a "smile that won't wear off."
When asked for a statement regarding the
association and its work he said:
1 Level Heads Wanted.
I am too tired to talk at all, but I do
want to say a few things. I want to say
that I have no sympathy with hypocrloy
and sentlmentallsm, which is noticed a
great deal In charity workers. Men are
needed In this kind of work who cannot be
stampeded. Your own governor, Mr.
Mickey, Is that kind of a man. He uses
good, hard sense In dealing with such mat
ters. I have noticed his utterance and ho
is right. Men are wanted whoe hearts are
In their work and who are not carried away
witn every Ism that comes along.
There probably will be considerable op
position to the statements In my annual
report and I hope I have succeeded In stir
ring up the members of the association.
A good Btlrrlng up won't hurt anybody, but
will result In -good. I am absolutely op-
posed to the Indeterminate sentence laws
that have been enacted. They have proven
failures and have not resulfed In the good
that waa expected of them. There Is no
question but what the theory Is sound and
righteous, but a a matter of fact It prac
tical working haa proven far short of
what was expected of It. In introducing
the system we have to contend with the
opposition of the prosecuting attorneys, as
well as a hostile court and a legislature
which Is usually afraid to enact the proper
kind of a law.
"The. only way the Indeterminate sen
tence system can be made to accomplish
good t for ino m'MMMrntlrift attorney and
the courts to co-operate with the legisla
tures and with the exercise of caution and
good sense by the pardoning powers. With
out these it 1 bound to be only a partial

District Judge Day of Omaha, who 1 In
attendance at the meeting, when asked
concerning President Garvin' statement
about the indeterminate sentence law. said:
"I have not made a sufficient study of

thing radically wrong with the present
system. In my two year on the criminal
bench I have sentenced three persons to
the penitentiary twice. There Is something
wrong when a person who get out of the
penitentiary starts anew on a career of
crime. I take it that It Is because there
Is no one to look after the convict when
he ts released and hold him up until he
secure a position. He Is given a suit of
clothe and 5 and having been irt prison
tt.. lost track of how things are done out
tn the world. It 1 a nara maner iur mm
to secure employment. He tries It prob
ably till his money Is gone and then he
return to stealing. I have no doubt that
a great many criminals Inherit their ten
dencies and thi raise another great qttes
v,irh will have to be settled."
A number of the delegate take Issue with
President Garvin over the attitude on the
Indeterminate sentence law. and before the
convention Is over there probably will be
a general discussion of the subject.

While this Is the fifth consecutive day
on which no deaths of yellow fever were
reported, which In Itself was a cause for
much general satisfaction, the most grati
fying Information came In the shape of
a telegram from the state health office
of Mississippi that on Monday evening all
Mississippi quarantines would be raised.
Another source of congratulation was a
telegram from Dr. Tabor of Texas to the
effect that Texas would admit people from
Louisiana who would make an affidavit
that they had not been near an Infected
point for six days previously. It Is be
lieved that the Texas restriction will be
entirely removed in a short time and that
Alabama will also remove all restrictions
In a short time. The removal of the

secured by mortgage on their .cattle. With
