Christ" Mission on F.arth.
One of the most Interesting talks waa
that by Mrs. J. I. McLaughlin, superln-
tendent of the hospital and Deaconesses'
home. In the morning at the Hanscom Park
church. Mrs. Mclaughlin gave a simple
and graphic account of the career of the
Omaha hospital and the prlvationa and
hnrrishlna ' endured bv those ' having the
work In hand. She said:
"Christ came to earth for three great
purposes to preach, to teach and to help
the sick and suffering. To be a genuine
Christian a person must be Interested
actively !n nil three of these things. The
salvation of aoula Is of the first importance.
but not always first in order. Christ
showed very plainly His conalderatlon for
the sick and hungry and emphasized His
esteem of these offices! and the same rules
that applied then are In force today.
Methodists always have done' greut work
in the saving of souls und in charitable
enterprises but they, and In fact the whole
Protestant denomination, has been asleep
In the matter of eating for the sick and
"The Good Samaritan stands out as a
great example. We are bidden to go and
do likewise and we should try to fulfill
"We can scarcely realise that eighteen
years ago there were only two Mothodlst
hospitals In the entire United States. Our
church had almost wholly neglected one
of the great purposes for which Christ
came. Now we have twenty hospitals
throughout the country and yet these
should be and I trust they are only a be
Hospital Here Fifteen Tears.
"In Omaha Methodists have had a hos
pital for nearly fifteen years. It Is duly
within the last few months that we have
let the public know anything of what we
, havs endured something of the privations
and struggles, that, had we known them In
advance, we never would have been able
to face. Three nurses, of which I was one,
came from Chicago to start the work.
The others broke down becuuse they did
not have enough to eat and from overwork.
I waa stronger than they and did not break
down, too. We were ashamed to let the
trustees know that we were giving very
nearly everything' to our patients.
"Our rented building has become a shack.
By using the aisles and corridors we have
made room for forty-two beds. They are
always filled and applicants are waiting
for admission. Sometimes people wait four
months to get in. In one year eight persons
died while waiting. Of late years the pub
lic has come to the rescue and the nuraes
are now enabled to live In a fairly satis
factory manner. But they have gono with
out many meals In' order to save a quarter
here and a quarter there. They still have
many burdens to bear of, which most peo
plo know nothing , about and concerning
which I have not the courage to go into
Seeing la Knowing.
To understand the real conditions one
must come ,to the hospital and Investigate
It for himself; We are able to take good
care of the patients, but only by the hard
est kind of work and putting up with many
Inconveniences end hardship. One-third
of our patient are treated fre that Is,
the hospital doe not receive one penny
for the services rendered. Beside the ma
terial akl we give, the hospital I used ns a
great missionary field and many con
versions to a Christian life are made there.
The nurse, any one of whom might l
earning 135 a week, labor for It S a wee
and try to save money to give toward
the much-needed new building. There are
no endowment. The support cnm from
the people of the state. For several years
one man has furnished aJt the flout used,
something like lo.onn pounds a year."

Declares Great Merchant lealeeted
IH a heat Doty In Getting Wealth.
"One wonders on what ocean we are
drifting when such colossal talent and
material success aa Marshall Field's had
such a pitiful outcome," said Rev. II.' C.
Herring at the First Congregational church
Sunday morning. "Ills would have been a
notable life back In the time of Caesar,
or of TjouIb XIV perhaps, but ' not aa
measured by the higher standards of this
Dr. Herring paid a tribute to Mr. Field
as a man who stood without a rival In a
class by hlmsMf, the greatest merchant of
the age, not only because he did the most
business, but because he did it by honest
method. He was not a speculator, not a
juggler of finance, not a eorruptor of public
officials, not the secret beneficiary of
rotten syndicate. Besides, he never put
an advertisement In a Sunday newspaper
and he kept his blinds down on the Sab
bath. He Is pointed to by the world as a
great merchant and an upright man.
"Yet." said Dr. Herring. "I am obliged to
say his life was one of deepest pathos; I
cannot help but sny It was a pathetic fail
ure. He did not succeed In averting from
his own home that ruin which will inevit
ably come unless the home Is fortified
with Christ. Out of his home was driven
love, sympathy and purity and for many
yeHrs he lived a lonely life. Whether
money ruined his home or not, it is bound
to ruin his grandchildren, to whom he left
practically his whole fortune. If we did
not know him so well It would seem that
he merely wanted to keep his great fortune
Intact, as a monument to himself. He left
a one-thuusaodth part of his fortune to
alleviate human suffering; he left nothing
to those great remedial agencies which
savo men a aoults.
"Marshall Field failed to contribute any
thing to the social question. While others
were experimenting with profit-sharing,
fighting against child labor, throwing safe
guards around women workers, striving
I to ahollHh sweat shops, he was busy piling
I up his mammoth fortune, apparently with

Among Youth of Omaha.
E. M. Robinson of New York City, inter
national secretary for boya' work In the
Young Men's Christian association, ad
dressed about 100 boys ut the association
rooms yesterday afternoon. The meeting
was especially for boys over 14 years old.
Mr. Robinson har the faculty of putting his
Ideas in language that can easily be under
stood by the boys and he was given close
attention. The meeting marks the begin
ning of a campaign to be madn by the
association among the youth of the city.
"Becoming men," he said, "does not
merely mean that we are growing older
and larger. There are changes much more
Important than age and size. For Instance,
a man's religion Is different from a child's.
We expert a man to take the reins In his
own hands. As you become older you be
come responsible for your own acts. One
test of manhood la a courageous personal
standard in religion. Another is a willing
ness to be of service to our fellow man.
The child thinks of himself only, but a
man must look at the Interests of others
aa welt. If he does not he la not a man
In the true sense of the world."
Mr. Robinson spoke last night' at the
First Congregational church, his address
being a discussion of problems of boy
hood. "The period of adolescense when the boy
la In hla 'teens Is the critical period In his
life. He Is all setlvlty and this activity
must be directed aright or he will direct
them In the wrong direction. It la known
that nine-tenths of tha habits that last
through life are formed In thla period and
the general line his thoughts will follow la
determined largely then. The great accel
eration to the ranks of criminals la during
boyhood.. The average of convicts In pris
ons Is only It snd when we consider that
most of them are not convicted of their
first offense we can see that they took up
a criminal career earlv in life. Urnnrim
show half of the murders in the country
are committed by boys and not by seasoned
of perxuns. He was fair with his em
ployes, yet he never fairly . faced tha
questions moHt vital to them nnd to labor
"It was nothing short of unfaithfulness
to his highest duty that he left the solu
tion of these burning questions to you
and ine, when he had such great intellect,
will and wealth and power to solve them."

In the verdict that the Jury in that cae
rendered," declared Rev. John Williams,
rector of St. Barnabas Kplscopal church. In
the course of hla sermon yesterday morn
ing, referring to the outcome of the Pat
Crowe case. Father Williams said th
Jury made the mistake of Ignoring the
main Issue and the' Crowe letter of con
fession and addressing Itself to the ques
tion. "Who Is the greater criminal, Cudahy
or Crowe?" Several other-Omaha ministers
took occasion In their Sunday discourses to
condemn the verdict. Continuing, Father
"Had tho Jurors' considered the evidence
alone i had their mind been free from
every consideration ave the one question
which they were sworn' to determine:
Did Pat Crowe rob Edward Cudahy of
$26,oW by compelling him under fear of
bodily hsrm to- his son, or did he not?
They could not have acquitted him. There
was his own confession. In a letter to a
priest, not under the sacred seal of sacra
mental confession In any sense. He ac
knoweldged the act. He offered to restore
$21,000, not because he was penitent and
wished to make good his lawless act as
far as lay In him; not because he wished
to submit himself to ..the .direction of his
former pastor ; not that. He offered to
restore, but on condition that Mr. Cudahy
should compound a felony. There was that
tell-tale letter! That confession of the
crime! Yet one of the Jurors declares they
paid little. If any, attention to that con
fession. They spent seventeen hours de
bating the evidence and their verdict, but
they, paid no serious heod to Crowe's own
confession. Now, why? Was tt not be
cause the' chlefest issue before the minds
of that Jury was not,. 'Is Crowe guilty or
not guilty of the crime charged?' but. 'Is
It Just or equitable to send Crowe to the
penitential. v for twenty years for taking
fcS,000 from Edward Cudahy, when the lut
ter, together with the other wealthy mem
bers of tho packing trust, stand before the
har. of JumiIw to answer for
law to an extent that makes Crowe's crime
veiilal In comparison. They stand befurc
the bar of Justice, represented by some of
tho most subtle, able niemlx-rs of the bar,
fightlngi the admission of their own con
fession of violation of law. JuhI aa Crowe's
lawyer fought the admlsxlon of his con
fession. They stand confessed, uf .viola
tion of law, a violation that was Intended
to enrich themselves at the expense of the
Reasoning; of the Jury.
That wa none . of the Jurors' business.
It Is true. They were. not called upon to
determine' whether Crowe or Cudahy w.ts
the greater, criminal. .The latter' guilt of
violated Jaw Is yet Judicially undetermined
and neither that Jurx nor we have tho
rUht to prejudge the members of the pack
ing trust. And if Jhe Jury did have tho
right that was not, the issue. But If the
secrets of that long Uiacusslou In the Jury
shall ever be dlscJosqd It will be found that
the verdict turnod ,;upon the question as to
whether. Crowe or Kdward Cudahy were
the greater criminal. .
Their answer was given. From their
point of view they rendered rough and
readv iiiHtlce. Pat
behind the bars pf penitentiary for tak
ing tS.ooo of the many, many millions
which the packing .trust took and Is tak
ing from the people at large, while Mr.
Cudahy, a member or that trust, walks
and will walk thecarth free. That Is the
lesson of the. verdict, and it Is only a very
small part of the lesson which men In high
station ought to take to heart In their In
satiable pursuit of . great wealth at all
hazards. The Jury's verdict In.ilcate the
cleavage that is going on today between
the wealthy and the poor. Tt Is a peril to
he faced. The laboring men compose our
Juries. The wealthy will not serve. They
have neither time nor disposition to sit on
Juries. What reason have they to object
to a verdict against tliom, when they them
selves do not hesitate to violate or evade
the laws, or at all events the Justice, which
poor men are required to obey? The Crowe
verdict Is that so far as robbery Is con
cerned Edward Cudahy la the greater crim
inal. Crowe, therefore, ahall not wear the
criminal's stripes and" stand behind the
steel bars 'of a criminal's cage, while the
former walks the. land free, clothed In
broadcloth. That is the bare, naked mean
ing of the verdict. And It is not wholly
without reason behind It. however much
sny of us may be offended or outraged by
thus putting Mr. Cudahy and the proved
felon, Pat Crowe. In the same category of
violators of the law, to the wrong and In
Jury of their fellows. Whether we con
sent or not to that, the thing will be done.
Today It Is the setting free of a confessed
villain; tomorrow. If we heed not the sign
of the times, It will be something in
finitely worse for the men of great for
tunes, doubtfully obtained."
Savidare Fears Mob Rule.
Rev, C. W. Savidge In hia sermon on
"The Country Saloon" at the People's
church Sunday night referred to tha Pat
Crowe verdict. He said:
"I think this verdict of acquittal is in
swful thing. It sometimes looks ss though
our Jury system has become a farce. If
our courts and lawmakers cannot And a
remedy for such excesses ss this our com
munities . will he f ortd to do what the
early settler did; thst is, to have a vigi
lance committee. -We cannot keep down
mob rule If things go on like this. The
feeling of the people Is too Intense. The
people feel far worse about this verdict
than la generally known. Whose child la
safe? they are asking. If men who commit
crimes like this go free. I sm no advocate
of mob law, hut it will be Impossible to
hinder it If we have much more of the Pat
Crowe kind of verdicts. I have hesrd It
suggested by a number that there should
be a meeting lb give voice to the public
Indignation about the matter. I believe
such a meeting should be held. The ver
dict should not be allowed to go unre
buked. As the matter stands now It Is a
disgrace to our city."
Opinions af Other Ministers.
A number of other . ministers took occa
sion to refer to the verdict of the Jury In
the Crowe case at 'either the morning or
evening services yesterday, and with few
exceptions their reference conveyed a more
or less strongly expressed Impression thdt
a miscarriage of Justice of lasting dis
grace to Omaha had been perpetrated.
. Rev. John W. Conley of the First Bap
tist church brought up the subject Inci
dentally in his sermon on "Men's Disposi
tlon to Dm; Sin," speaking In the strong
est terms against the verdict. He charac
terised the action of the Jury In acquitting
the man after his confession and after
such evidence as most astonishing.
The result of the Crowe trial came iu
for mention by Rev. Newman H. Burdlrk
of the Second Presbyterian ehurch In his
talk on the need of a revival of religion
He said: "When a verdict can be returned
