"The Church of the Living God" was
ihe subject of the sermon by Rov. H. C.
Herring at the First Congregational church
yesterday morning. In part he said:
'The living God referred to In the passage
was, of course, the God revealed through
Jesus Christ and the church of the living
;ol waa the Hum of those organisations
that represented God before the eye of
nie.ii. Anything that makes for Itself lnrge
thing la subject to large criticisms and
the church has had Its share of these.
There Is no lie, no Impostor, no super
stition that has not at some time found
a place In the church. If any proof of the
truth of the living God Is needed It Is found
In the. fact that Its church has survived
all of these. Any human Institution would
have perished. .
The history of the church has been sad I
at times, but sadder still Is the history
of th world In which the church existed.
However dark the history of the church
has been at times, even at Its darkest It
has been the brightest thing In the world.
The light of the church hns never been
utterly extinguished and Ita light has al
ways been brighter than the lights of men.
"The central function of the church is to
support the great gospel of love and truth
as revealed through Christ. It cannot do
this by mechanical means. It cannot up
hold the truth by merely administering the
sacrament or by preserving It In the rigid
form of theological statements. This error
Is still In the world. It can do It only by
championing the truth with all Us ran
somed powers. Many would have us preach
only the simple form of the gospel of com
fort without relation to. the collateral In
terests of the kingdom. This Is demanded
by those who wish to conform decently to
the form' of religion and seek pleasures
at the same time. Thai Is not enough.
Wo must uphold In our lives the truth In
all forms and activities which this mani
fold life takes on."

"Does a man have to plant his feet in the
dust of a town, live, grow and perish there
In order to attain the rights of cltlsenship.'
asked Rev. Clyde Clay C'lssell of the Hans
com Park Methodist church Sunday morn
Ing In his sermon on "The Preacher's Com
mission." Mr. Ciscell was objecting that
when a local preacher spoke not long since
on the subject of civic righteousness, a
newspaper should have taken occasion to
remind him that he was a citizen but for a
little while, and" that soon he would pass
on to another place,
"I know there are many people today
who regard the preacher as a superfluous
number," he went on. "Borne of them ac-
tually think the time will com when he not
only will he a superfluity, but will be rele-
gated to the social dump pile. lt him keep
to himself, says society, and devote himself
to prayers for women and children, leaving
other things alone, and for the present we
will tolerate him.
"But for all that the preacher has a com
mission and he Is bound to fulfill It. Gd
needs the preacher and he Is the only man
necessary to the divine plan. Every man.
woman and child is In a larger sense and a
simple way a preacher of the gospel. I
should not like to think I was the only
prencher In this church, prenehlng some-
thing like Iro sermons a year, but that the
church consists of S75 preachers, who preach
every day In the year, making In all 140,009
"It Is an age when there is great danger
of forgetting that the first duty of the
Christian minister Is the preaching of tho
gospel. I know of churches where the gos-
pel Is a secondary consideration; they are
looking for a man who has great executive
power, ability to gather money and build
churches, social graces, evangelical powers
to attract tie masses. While It Is desirable
that he should possess all these good qual- At the gospel meeting yesterday after

"Wherefore come out from among them

was ths text of a sermon of "Good Di

of the Kountze Memorial church Sunday
"Considerable discussion Is being In
dulged in over the question of evil di

been heU In Washington to consider these
matters to see if some remedy could be

"Society should rise en matse against the
evil, and all who believe In the sanctity
of the home should strive to force the

It was never Intended that the good and
the evil should mix, for' the good soon will
swallow tha evil or the evil will soon de
stroy the good. Religion and rum were
never intended to mix, aa was shown by
the failure of Bishop Potter's subway
scheme. 'Do evil that good may come' Is a
vicious principle. A Christian business man
has more power for righteousness and God
than a minister."

"If by any chance the laws of society

God's government. "The sauie conditions

result Is that this attraction has made
splendid success and Is entitled to a place
In the front rank. The fact that Johnny

WORKMAN IS KILLED BY FALL
Frank Sholta a Victim of Accident
la Tearing Dovru V. M. C. A.
Bui lain a:.
The work being done for J. K Brandels
& Sons on Douglas, between Sixteenth
nd Seventeenth streets, claimed another
victim yesterday when Frank Sholtz, aged
about 36 years, stumbling over . a . brick
lying on a window cap on the second floor
of the old Toung Men's Christian asso
ciation building, fell to the .- floor, then
out through the window and landed on his
head and shoulders on the hard pavement,
dying about an hour afterwards at the
Methodist Episcopal hospital.
Sholtz was employed by Walter S. Jar-
dine In the demolition of the association
building and was removing stones over a
second story window in tearing down the
walls. He had cleared a window cap, but
on Its upper surface lay a -brick which
proved the means of throwing Sholts to
the ground. Just at the same moment tho
parade, of the Colored Knights of Pythias
was passing up Sixteenth street, and It
waa asserted by some of the other work
men Sholts was attracted by th music
of the band, relaxing his vigilance for his
own safety, and possibly even attempting
to cut a caper to the tune of the melody
on his lofty perch. In falling he first
struck' about seven feet below, then slid
out of the window. ' He waa rendered tin
conscious by the blow and shock.
Dr. W. 8. Glbbs was fortunately near at
hand and Dr. Fitzgerald waa also sum
moned. Sholts remained In a comatose
state until sent to the Methodist hospital
by Dr. Gibbs. He did not live long after
his arrival, tha great shock and conges
tion of th chest with the other Injuries
causing death about 1:30 o'clock.
Sholts had roomed recently at 603 South
Thirteenth street and had also spent some
nights with a friend at the Stat hotel
1312 Douglas street. He had been em
ployed a number of years as teamster for
Walter Jardlne, proprietor of th Omaha
Merchants' Express and Transfer company,
and had lived in Omaha Intermittently for
nearly twenty years. H was married
about five years ago to -en Omaha dress
nmker, but the two did not live long to
gether. Where the wife is now has not
been learned. Little is known concerning
the dead man among his associates. The
only known relative Is a sinter, who resides
In a small town In Nebraska. '
Coroner Bratley will swear In a Jury a
the scene of the accident at 7 o'clock thi
morning, before the workmen begin tear
Ing down more of the building.
In order to have the building demolished
and removed on contract time the con
tractors worked their men yesterdsy, al
though it was the Sabbath. Further ope
rations sere concluded for the day, how
cvr, after the accident.

Of those who are Satisfied only by the
artistic. Valerie Bergere. long ago estab
lished ss an artist ef the truest type, Is
holding forth with her condensed version
Of "Carmen." Miss Marie Doro Is credited
with having dramatised the opera for Miss
Bergere, and she has done nn excellent
Job. Into the one act slle bus not only
compressed the story i but has remitted Its
intensity of dramatic action, and sustains
Its Interest perfectly f mm Its opening to
Its tragic close. Don Jose loves Carmen
madly, but she tires of him. and seeks to
cast him off for the toreador, Kex-anil!lo.
Jose, mad with Jealousy, and stung by
her floutlnga and brazen acknowledgment
.that she Is tired of him. stabs her to
death. In no other character "jf the many
she has been seen In here does Miss Ber
gere show to such splendid effect her
qualifies as an actress. ' She is an Ideal
Carmen In appearance and manner, and
the cold, calculating, sordid nature of the
Gypsy cigarette maker Is given fullest
expression. 8he Is Selfish, capricious, re-
pellant In her -manner. Her fickleness in
love la but a. part of her untamed nature,
and her death at the hands of Jose seems
most ' logical. The company with Miss
Bergere Is very good, the work of Henry
Keane as Don Jnse' being excellent, and
that of Miss Maude Turner Gordon as Zara
in' a measure equalling that of the star.
Tho stage setting for the act Is a beautiful
scene In the Spanish mountains.
Charles R. . Sweet, ,"The Burglar," keeps
his auditors laughing' for twenty minutes,
and Bonnie Gaylord Is almost as successful
with her "girl from Posey county." The
Grants made a tremendous hit for their
first appearance. They sing several sonrn
very well, and their dancing Is excellent.
The LrPages do a Jumping act that must
be seen to be . understood. It is far and
away the best single athletic feat offered
here this . season. Paul Kkist has his
spectacular novelty , working better than
ever, and his effects are really startling,
while the whole thing is productive- of
much laughter. Mme. Ktnmy has a flue
lot of well trained. little dogs, who do a
number of very pleasing stunts. The pic
tures are also worth looking at.
"The Rivals" at the Boyd.
Two very small audiences were at the
Boyd theater yesterday to we Joseph Jef
ferson and William W. Jefferson in Rich
ard Brinsley. Sheridan's fine comedy. "Tue
Rivals." Those who did take the trouble
to attend were richly repaid, for a delight-
til . performance was given. William W.
Jefferson appears as Bob Acres, and is a
most sprightly and unctions aspirant for
the hand. of Lydia Languish. Ills concep
tion' of the role Is broad and comprehensive.
nd his interpretation Is intelligent and
satisfactory. Joseph Jefferson as Sir Lucius
O'Trigger abandons, some of the tradition
connected with the role, but In the main
makes It one of. the features of the place.
John Jack, incomparable John Jack, is still
doing Sir Anthony Absolute , ns only he
can. Rosa Rand's.. Mrs. Malaprop is a
classic and Mlsa Render's Lydia Languish
Is also well done. The whole company Is
good, and, the only, regret connected with

Address of the Day.
Rev. J. A. Bingaman spoke on "Love of
the Brotherhood . and Fear of God." He
said in part:-
"lou come here, as a body, of men be
lieving in a supreme being, and a society
that Ixilcves In and worships God and tho
Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. You believe
In the fatherhood of God and brotherhood
of men. You are brothers by a racial tic,
though we aro all descendants of Nonh,
nnd hence constitute a brotherhood of blood
from which sprang all races of men, bo
they blacks, reds or . whites. After the
dispersion of the races there arose a class
of - priests, philosophers and poets who ob
served their various codes' of ethics. The
priesthood as the heads of the religious
orders adopted. system of . secret and pub
lie worship. The secret worship was called
the mysteries,' the object of their mysteries
being to preserve; tho truth from corrup
tion, and from this system came the or
ganization of the secret societies and later
fraternal orders." .
Orlatn of Kntghrs of Pythias.
Tho speaker then went Into a history
of the organization of the Knights of
Pythias, th. origin of Its name and the
Inspiration . in the, .story ot Damon and
Pythias..' He told of , the .good resulting
from the , principle , of, tha order - when
faithfully carried . out by the members.
which stimulated them to loftter aims and
Instilled into them a . pride of unity and
devotion -to the principle of brotherly
"The white man .Is looking at you," he
continued, "and your destiny lies In your
own hands. There Is no other race of peo
ple that excels the negro In numbers on
this continent. There are 10,000,000 of them,
but of no other race. It Is up to you as
a religious brotherhood to solve the great
problem of tho negro question.
"T-her are two reasons why the !sck
man stands apart from his fellows as a
race. One Is he has been taught not to
associate with the other fellow and the
other Is because of the Inherited treachery
of the race, which Is not his fault. The
word. Ham. from whom he Is descended,
means treachery. It Is only by brother
hoods such as this that tho race can be
"Keep strong, you strong men, for we
don't know when we will need you. The
negro has suffered long. No race has suf
fered more than he. Yet no race has made
so rapid a progress ' in the last century
as the negro. I do not predict a conflict
between the two races. t Is only the low.
degraded whites and low, degraded negroes
who think of such a conflict and who would
foment such a strife. Make good citizens
of yourselves. Be a credit to your race
and carry out the principles of your or
der, and. above all, have the fear and
love of God In your souls. Tor whit
proflteth It a man if he gain the whole
world and lose his own soul?' " .
BIG HORN RIVER ON RAMPAGE
Bridge Taken Oat at Basin and More
Damage Likely to Be
CHEYENNE. Wyo., March 26. (Special
Telegram.) An ice gorge In the Big Horn
river carried out thf. flO.OOO bridge at Basin
this evening. The stream is three feet
above high water mark and Nowood and
Paint Rock rivers, the chief tributaries of
the Big Horn, are eight and nine feet above
high water waik. respectively. All streams
In the Big Horn country are rising rapidly,
the lowlands are flooded and ranchmen and
others are fleeing to higher ground. Many
valuable properties are inundated and tho
loss will be something enormous.
Three large ice gorges have formed in the
river above Basin and as the channel is
conmletely blocked, it is expected a disas
trous flood will occur there. During the last
two weeka more thsn two feet of snow fell,
cold weather prevented the snow melting
until four days ago, when a sudden thaw
set in. The flood rushing down the Big
Horn will swell the Missouri river and will
undoubtedly result In destructive floods In
