Christ's Kingdom a Great Force.
- Governor John II. Mickey delivered an
address on "The Tower of the Word of
"The teaching of the word of G-d has
been nourished and extended from small
beginnings until today the Bible Is only
necond In power to God Himself," said
Governor Mickey. "It required many cen
turies to fit man for the establishment of
the church; It required the teachings of a
long series af prophets. The greatest and
hardest thing of Hit for the people to learn
waa that Christ's kingdom Is spiritual
rather than temporal. Tet today the word
lias grown In Influence so that to measure
Its power by the things It lias done would
tto to measure It by everything noble and
grand that has been accomplished by civili
zation. No great reforms, no great pur
poses have been accomplished except by
Christian nations; no fruitful laws have
been made except they have been based on
the decalogue. The greatest nations are
those which most generally recognise God
and the power of His church. Why are
the Africans and Chinese and Turks so
f ir behind pther r.atlcins in civilization? It
is because the word of God has been a
closed book to them.
"Passions and luxury tore down ancient
civilization, because the church was not
present to warn them against that which
saps the life of nations. The Influence of
the church Is for react, sobriety, correct
habits, scholarly attainments, meekness,
humanity and brotherly love. That the
world needs the church goes without say
ing. To Imply otherwise would be to im
pugn tha wisdom of God."
Governor Mickey was followed by short
addresses by John L. Kennedy and Rev.
George W. Isham, field secretary for Ne
braska Weeleyan university.
WUh r you' rest i the teachings, "of your
church," said Mr. Kennedy, addressing the
church members. "Your lives and the
examples you set must be square and true,
lis this cornerstone is. They exert an
Influence not only on this city and this
state, but on the nation. , There are those
among the children of the church who
will makn their mark In the affairs of the
nation. In order to have a church of power
every Individual must rise to a high stand

BEE'S SIGN IS A BEAUTY
Only On F.lectrlo Illumination In the
City That Compares With
A recent presentation of a magnificent
hall clock to a prominent politician In Mis
souri has started an item on the rounds
of the press about a clock owned by a
man at Olencoe, Kan., made In Kentucky
100 years ago. This Kansas cjock Is now
regarded as a family relic, which money
8. S. Peters of 672 South Twenty-eighth
street, Omaha. Is the owner of a calendar
clock which is 194 years old. and still
running. It has come down in direct line
of descent from the original purchaser
through the oldest male member of the
Peters family through the two centuries
, of Its existence. There is no flaw Ih Us
pedigree. The clock" was built by Folix
Owen In the famous town of Tork, Eng
land, In 1711, and was purchased by New
ton Peters. Seven years afterward New
ton Peters came to America, settling at
Jamestown, Va. A few years later he,
with William Byrd founded the town of
Petersburg. Va. On the death of Newton
Peters, In 1715. the clock became the prop
erty of his son, Absalom, and on his death.
In 1760, Absalom's son, Zachariah, came Into
possession. Zach Peters was an officer In
the American navy and wh$n he died, his
son, Turds evidently named In memory of
the scene of actual naval service got the
timepiece. In 1787 Tunis Peters became
a member of a colony moving to Ohio and
brought the clock with him to that then
new country. On his death. In 1802, his
son, also Tunis, became the owner of the
old clock. He was one of the pioneers
of Ross county, Ohio, where he lived until
1856. His successor In the ownership was
Jonathan L. Peters of Columbus, O., who
died in 1883. The clock then became the
property of Jonathan's only surviving son,
Samuel 8. Peters, now on The Bee staff.
Has Served Seven Generations.
It will thus be seen that the Peters
clock has counted the hours of seven long
lived generations of the Peters family. It
was keeping time when Lexington and Con
cord came into Imperishable history as
battlefields; heard the cannons' roar pre
ceding the close of the revolution of York
town, and has been the silent witness of
scenes which, if It could talk, would thrill
J the dullest mind and stir the most apa-

OFFICIAL TEAM FIELDlVQ.
The feature cf the meeting of the city
council meeting tonight will be the sate of
170.000 refunding general Indebtedness bonds.
Four bids for these bonds were received by
mall yesterday by City Clerk Oillln and
others lire expected today. The bids al
ready received are from eastern bankers
who are frequent bidders for South Omaha
securities. This Issue of bonds has been
drawing 8 per cent Interest for five years
and advantage is taken of the option to re
deem at the expiration of that time. TBese
bonds are to be refunded at 4H per cent In
terest, thus saving the city $1,550 annually
In Interest on this issue. The last sale of
bonds for $70,000 at 44 pel" cent brought a
premium of m per cent and It Is expected
that the refunding Issue will bring about
the same amount of a premium.
Salaries of the city officials and the fire
and pollco departments for October will be
paid. The salaries of the officials amount to
$2,100, the police department $1,820 and the
fire department $820. In allowing these
salaries at this time the city clerk wilt be
given an opportunity of Issuing the war
rants before election. In order to give him
more time to attend to his election duties
Tho first estimate on the new fire halt
will most likely be presented and allowed.
Excavating for this building is completed
and the foundation walls are up to a level
with the surface. An 'estimate on the Six
teenth street grading will also be allowed.
Most of the routine matter will most likely
go over until the first regular meeting In
Error In Sldevrnlk Ordinance,
An ordinance wns passed by the city
council some weeks ngo directing that per
manent walks be laid on the west side of
Thirtieth street from Madison to Monroe
street, .on the south Bide of Monroe from
Thirtieth to Thirty-Mist street and on the
west side of TTilrty-flrst street from Mon
roe to Jackson street. When City Claim
Agent Barrett started out to serve notices
on property owners he found the territory
to be acre property, located south of the
Jetter brewery. There Is only one house
within several blocks of the proposed per
manent walks. Just how the error oc
curred none of the councllmen seem to
know, but It was passed and Is copied In
the Journal. Very likely the ordinance will
be repealed at an early date.
Snpreme Court tares.
City Attorney Lambert has prepared briefs
In two canes and will file them with the
state supreme court early next month. One
is the case of George M. Nicholson, who se
cured a Judgment against the city for $500
for being assaulted and" beaten In a saloon
at Thirteenth and Missouri avenue. The
other Is the case of James Beger against
George Westcott. Seger obtained Judgment
for $550 for the use of a private road to the
river used by Oarbagemaster Westcott.
This suit Is being defended by the city be
cause the road right had been purchased by
the city prior to the time suit was brought.
Republican Meeting; Tonight.
A rally of republicans is to be held at
Workman temple. Twenty-fifth and M
streets, this evening. Several well known
speakers, including Congressman John L.
Kennedy, will be present and deliver ad
dresses. In addition to the speakers who
have promised to attend It Is expected that
quite a number of the candidates will be
present and speak a few words. Interest
In the coming election Is on the Increase
and the expectation is that the temple will
be well filled tonight.
Inntrnctlnar Election Officials.
' The custodians of the voting machines
will be kept busy this week instructing
election officers In the election laws and
the handling of the voting machines. Elec
tion officers will be Instructed at the voting

is the Intention to have a general school
of Instruction at the council chamber.
Forty-flv of the sixty election officers have
never served on election boards or else
have never been Instructed In tho use of
voting machines, so that the custodians
