H. H. BALDRIGE CHIEF ORATOR OF DAY
Says Association la . l-ermaaeat Or.
aanlullon Rerasse Horn for
Definite Work and Kal
i Alls Its Mission,
Nature seemed In Its most, pleasing mood
Saturday afternoon on the occasion of the
laying of the cornerstone of the new Young
Men's Christian association building at the
southwest corner of Harney ami Seven
teenth streets. A throng was present to
witness tltc ceremonies, which were car
ried out on an Improvised platform. I. V.
Carpenter, president of the association,
acted as master of ceremonies. The pro
gram opened with a song, "I Will Life t'p
Mine Eyes," by the Kountze Male quartet,
consisting of R. J. Spoerrl, C. P. Daniels,
E. N. Bovell and A. L. Dick. Rev. D. K.
Jenkins delivered the Invocation, following
which Howard H. Baldrige, chairman of
tha cltlxens' .committee, delivered .the ora
tion. President Carpenter placed the stone In
position, making an address In which he
described the work of the association and
told the story of the building evolution.
Oration of Baldrige.
In his oration Mr. Baldrige said:
Recently, 1 believe, the association hat
more comprehensively grasped what ought
to be Its methods, means and mission.
It Is a permanent organisation, because It
was born' for a detinue nnd permanent
work. It Is not an ephemeral or fast pass
ing institution, for It deals with that which
Is permanent In meil. Jt Is here to stay
because it has work to do. It Is not hero
to do the work of the church or the home,
nor to supplant the church and the homo.
It is ancillary and supplementary and not
antagonistic to these. It deals with the
whole man In his three-fold powers. It
touches the physical, mental nnd moral
nature. Its business Is to develop the
whole man, the complex faculties of the
mind; to train them for definite specialized
work; to develop the physical man and
give him a strong, healthy body; to elo
vate the soul, and to surcharge It with
aspirations for a higher and better life.
Its business Is to ncourag growth and
furnish tha opportunity for It.
The law of growth Is the law of life.
No life Is stationary. Every day Is a day
of development or a day of deterioration.
We either know mora today than we did
yesterday or we know less. We are either
better today than yesterday or we are worse.
Hence the need of 'well directed meAtal.
physical and spiritual activity. We ara
like an engine on an up-grade plane we
must either go forward or we will go back
ward. It is so easy for men to let them
selves slide down grade. It requires no
effort. The movement seems Involuntary.
Just turn 'off the steam and release the
brake and they will soon be at the bot
tom. Persistent effort Is the only thing
that counts In life. If the young man drops
the oar he may pleasantly drift for awhile
on th placid sea of life, but he la sure
to land on the shoals nnd the bars. He
must have the stimulus for exertion. It
Is found in the association of other well
directed young men. He must have the
place and the opportunity for growth and
development. It will be found here. In the
beautiful building you are about to erect.
It will add much to the worth of the cllr.
We have false Ideiui of worth. A man's
worth consists not so much In what he has,
but in what he is. We ought not to meas
ure the greatness cf a city so much by the
beauty of Its streets, the magnificence of Its
buildings, the magnitude of its business
enterprises, as by the character of its
.citizenship. Whatever makes for the
character of Its citizens makes for the
greatness of the city. To the state, as to
the individual, morals are more than
money end principles moro than price, and
thla building will stand for the morals and
the manhood of this city. It must not be
a school to breed a weak, boneless, namby
pamby type of Christianity, nor of a wild
and unreasonable fanaticism, but a strong
virue nesn ana blood type of exalted
young manhood. It must not be a home
for milksops, but for men. It must not
be a sectarian temple. It must be open
to all creeds and denominations. Jew and
Gentile, Catholic and Protestant, must be
equally welcome to its portals and Its
privileges. It must be broad and catholic
in Its endeavor and comprehensive In the
sphere of Its Influence. Its constant aim
and ultimate purpose are and must be lo
make man better physically, mentally,
morully. To this end havo you wrought.
To this end have the people of Omaha
generously contributed to your plans. To
this end will this structure be erected and
The people of Omaha have given liberally
of their substance to this building. They
kave a faculty of arising to the occasion
and meeting every public obligation as
they have met this one. They have almost
shown a genius for giving. They could
not make a better public investment. We
recognize their liberality and their open
handed benevolence which will make this
President Carpenter's Address.
President I. W. Carpenter said prior to
the ceremony of laying the cornerstone:
Before performing my duties with the
trowel 1 desire to make a brief statement
regarding the finances of the association.
We sold our old building at Sixteenth and
Douglas streets for l'JD,i cash. A mort
gage and other Indebtedness 'amounted to
about S7J.C0O, leaving $12t.uoft on hand. We
then bought the lots at Sixteenth and
Howard streets for 1115.000 and later sold
them for S12o,0u0, leaving 1131, ouO on hand.
We then bought this property of 142x171
feet for $.i,3fxi, leaving about I72.0HO on
hand. We raised by subscription I1U6.000,
making about tlTa.OnO In cash with which
to erect this building. The building will
cost, when equipped and furnished. In the
neighborhood of liSO.oort, so we will have
about tT&.oiO to raise thla 'winter If we dedi
cate it free of debt.
In behalf of the Board of Directors, I
desire to thank all contributors to the
association fur their donations. I desire
to thank our citizens as a community for
their generosity on the occasion ot our
canvass, and I In-speak for the present
canvass of the the association, which Is in
progiess at this moment, the same gener
osity which characterized the canvass for
this building. The laying of the corner
stone of this great building Is an evidence
of a marked advancement of this city
morally as well as materially. We should
pause here to praise the noble work that
was done by a similar committee of pro
gressive Christian men, who with your aid
erected the old Young Men's Christian as
sociation building nineteen years ago. That
was erected for a city of 75.WW Inhabitants.
We are erecting this for a city of 2jO,fW
people, and we must not fall to provide
for the future. The ready response of the
citizens of Omaha to our call for tlOO.OOU
last July has been far-reaching in its re
sults. 8t. Paul. Inspired by our example,
sent for the Onuiha cl ick and raised t-UJ.O'i.
Then came Duluth. Denver and Kansas
City, who S" nt far 'the clock and rsised
amounts sufficient for the building of as
sociation temples In their respective cities,
making a total of over a million dollars
raised for tills purpose through the ex
ample of Omah.t.
Do not think for the moment It was tho
Omaha clock that raised the money. Hut it
was first the merit of the cause ilself ami
then the same kind of organization of
btirlness men in conjunction with the Board
of Directors in these various cities which
created the enthusinsm for better thing
for moral advancement which awakened
tha civic pride of the public and they re
sponded most nobly In all those cities. Do
you regret for one moment what you have
helped us to do? Do you regret what you
have helped these other cities to do by the
inspiration of your example, and will you
not help our sixtera In their noble work of
building their building? And will you nut
help us when the time comes to dedicate
this building free of debt?

PENDER, Neb., March 30. To the Editor
Of The Bee: County Judge King announces
his Intention to dismiss without hearing the
cases of Father Schell against delinquent
guardians of Indian orphans and minors, if
bonds for costs are not filed, thus the laud
able efforts of Father Schell, who has spent
time and money to put the court In motion
to quell frauds reaching Into over IIOO.OuO, is
to come to an end.
But the public will be reminded that the
requirement to file cost bonds. Is to be the
loophole for an official to evade one of his
principal duties that of guarding the prop
erty Interests of orphans and minors
Before the coining of Father Schell one
of the worst evils lo be met with affecting
the Indians of the county was that of
throwing (under rolor of court proceedings)
the states of Indian minors Into the hands
of Irresponsible guardians with straw

associated with me in business for the last
sixteen years, and I should be able to give
a good Idea of him aft-T these years of
contact. I believe him to be an hunusL
