' Dr. Williamson's Address. -
The principal address of the morning;
aesslon was that of Rev. W. J. William
son, D. D.. pastor of the Third church,
St. Louts, Mo. The subject of Dr. Will
iamson's address was "The Price avid Com
pensation of Spiritual Power." He aaid
"Power romes to ua at the moment of
action. Men who have conquered the
world have come down from the hills.
The great victories of the World have
been won by men who have forgotten
themselves. The question of the hour
Is the evangelisation of our home land.
The price of power is the surrender of
life, the completion Of the life beautiful.
May we go forward from this place nlld
with the power of God to do, to seek for
the betterment of mankind everywhere
Let ua forget self in the evangelisation
of the world. What we want la workers
for God's cause, and more workers. The
field ia vast, the harvest Is ripe and work
ers are wanted. There la no nobler vo
cation than that of working for Christ,
working for the betterment of your .fellow
men. It is an inspiration to do great
and better things and the reward is In
calculable. It Ilea with you young people
to do much. To you ia entruated the
great work of the future. God will give
yon the power, and He wanta you to en
list in Ills cause, that mankind may be
come better and your mission be fulfilled.'

to conquer the world through us. There
are enough young people In this gathering
to help the Baptist Young People's union
out of Its present financial atralts. There
has been too much of our holding meetings
In the east heretofore. I Want you to ac
cept the invitation to meet with us at
Spokane next year, and then I am going
to mnke a motion to change the name of
the the organisation to the Baptist Young
People's I'nion of the World. Whatever
our future may be, we must be dependent
upon God. We must hold on to the power
of God, which Is easy to obtain. So long
as that power la unhindered It is omnipo
tent. If we would succeed we' must ex
amine ourselves and remove the obstaclea
out of the way ot God's power, that It may
prevail. Hla power has been shown In the
paat by the martyrs -who had convictions,
believed things, and died for them. Christ
said:' T am the wsy, the life; no man
cometh to the Father but tHrough Me.'
A multitude of people are living too much

Klowa Indian Quartet.
Rev. H. H. Clouse, miaslonary to thi
Kiowa Indians, at Mountain View, Okl.,
waa Introduced and presented four Klowa
IndUns, three men and one woman, con
verts of that mission. They sang a song
in the Indian language entitled, "Whj.n
Pld the Father Bend Down to Save ua?"
The song waa extremely Interesting be
cause of Its slow musical cadence that Is
so weirdly characteristic of the Indian
music. These Indiana will sing frequently
throughout the convention.
A telegram was read from Rev. Len O.
Broughton of Atlanta, stating that he had.
missed his train connections and would be
unable to reach Omaha for the afternoon
meetin. Rev. Mr. Celselwest of Chicago
waa then designated to take charge ot the
afternoon devotional meeting. He spoke
from the text Psalma 84:11. He aaid In
part: "Too many people take the Bible, as
a book of magic. There is a vast, differ
ence In asking of God a thing, rather than
telling Him ot It. We aOhere too much to
the kindergarten experience In religion. The
apirtt knowa that we cannot pray right be
cause of our Infirmities. Let no man say
that 'I am kinder than my heavenly
father.' Let your prayer be, 'Lord, he
whom Thou lovest Is sick.' God simply
wanta to be told. There la too much of
this clamoring for what we call the bless
ing of God. What we want is a closjr
communion with God. Do not storm God
out with yuur petitions, Just afck Him, and
He will answer our needs as we need
With the close of Pr. Geiselwest'a address
the afternoon meeting adjourned.
KVEM6 IESSIO FILL OF LIFE
Banners Awarded and Addreasea
Madg- at Aodllorlom.
At the evening aesslon ot the convention
the Auditorium waa comfortably filled.
The program embraced three featurea of
unuaual Interest, a strong addreaa by Rev.
R. M. West of St. Paul, Minn.; the annual
address of the president, John H. Chap
man, and the presentation of the Interna
tional prise banners for efficiency In work
outlined for the Baptist Young People's
I'nion of America.
The session opened at T SO with a praise
service. In which the chorus took the prom
inent part, singing the songs of the new
Alexander-Towner book. The choir proved
to be a great attraction, and later, at th
cloae of the meeting, when Prof. Towner
sang "Evening Bella" and the- Immense
choir hummed the refrain, the audience
seemed enraptured with the melody.
After the praise service the chairman of
the evening, Rev. George A. Miller of
Baltimore, created no little amusement, and
moved many hundrede of women to action,
by asking them to remove their hats.
Nebraska Wine a Banner.
Rev. E. B. Chlvers. D. P., of New York
read a passage of scripture. Then followed
the presentation of the International ban
ners by Prof. Ira M. Price of Chicago,
chairman of the executive committee of
the union. The sacred literature banner
went to the province of Ontario and Que
bec and became their permanent property,
as this makes the fourth time they have
won It. The conquest mission banner waa
awarded to Nebraska and for the third time
to the society at Grand Island collage.
At the name of Nebraska the voice of the
apVakar waa drowned la the cheer of the
multitude, and when Grand Island was
named, a group of student from that col

Dr. West's Address.'
Then came the principal address of the
evening on ' I'ses of a Life of Power." by
Rev. R. M. West. p. p., 0f St. Paul. Minn.,
' The home of Philip, the evangelist, wn
once the scene of a tragic event. Paul
and Ms sttendants were going up to Jeru
salem and stopped n few days to virlt
Philip st Caesarea. While they wee the'o
the prophet Agahus came from Jerusalem.
He knew well the disposition of the Jews
at Jerusalem towards Paul, that It w:is
bitter. Taking Pauls girdle he bound his
own hsnds and feet. While the whole
company watched him In wonder he ex
plained his conduct: go 'shall the Jews
at Jerusalem hind the man that owncth
this girdle and shall deliver him into the
hands of the Gentiles." Not doubting the
accuracy nf the Information of Agnhus, sll
at once commenced to dlii!tl Paul from
his purposed vlstt to Jerusnlrm, but he
silencing them said: "What do ye weeping
and breaking my heart? For 1 im readv
Jot to be hound onlv, hut aleo to die at
eruaalem for the name of the Lord Jesu."
He was tnking a look at life from the
fiolnt of view of a servint of Jesus Christ,
lis viewpoint did not niter the things which
awaited him In life, but it altered his atti
tude toward them, saving him from tears
and cowardice, snd. better still, making
him the master rather thnn the creature
of circumstance. Because Paul entered Into
his career as a Christian to do the will of
od therefore he was able ss he looked
Into the future 0 say, "None of these
things move me." and. Is he looked bnck
upon his career completed to sav. "I have
fought a good fight; l j,nve finished my
course; I have kept the faith."
affords ua a splendid Illustration of
the life of power put to appropriate, uses.
He explained his active ministry Ss the
result of God working In him mightily and
derlared that the grace of God Was not
bestowed upon him In vain, for he labored
more abundantly than they all,
Pnnl gent foe n Purpose.
One historian writing of Paul sftvs: "It
Is Impossible to studv the life of Paul with
out receiving the impression thst he was
ent Into the world to do a work required
by the Juncture of history on which he
fell. At the moment of Paul's appearance
upon, the stage the Christian movement
was In the utmost need of a man of extra
ordinary endowments, who, becoming pos
sessed with its genius, should incorporate
it with the general hlntoy of the world."
I want to help -you realise tonight that
America Is at a Juncture 6f hlstorv which
calls for men nnd women possessed with
the genius of Christianity who shall meet
and master the problem of the time In the
spirit and power of Jesus Christ. From
the position of young Christians I wsnt you
lo look Into life and consider the problems
presented In ita stream of events upon the
solution of which depends the weal or woe
of America and mankind. In the matters
to which I shall direct your attention to
night life will compel you to tako a par',
nnd Christ depends upon you . to take the
part which is dear to Him.
The part In life which you may perform
requlrea that you he filled with might br
Hla spirit in the Inner life, that you put
on the whole armor of God and having
done all things stand in Hla strength.
In International affairs there are two
movements that are progressing side br

manifest In the standing armies and bris

provisions for peace manifest in the fre

Of which many keen minds are devoted.
The provision for peace Is alo manifest In
the Interparliamentary union with Its more
than 2.000 members, representing the parlia

Manifestly these two forces cannot con

II Matters pertaining to our national life.
There are certain matters pertaining o
cur American life which are presenting
Crohloms, a solution to which will doubtless
e found, must be found, during the half
century of active life which Is before ydxt.
Materialism nn Issne.
1. The question of msterlalism. Our gov
ernment has passed successfully the diffi
culties arising In the time of construction.
We have a constitution which binds a vast
territory and a numerous people, a credit
which permits large and successful com
merce with the world. Constitution, credit
and union all have been menaced and all
stand unscathed. The reasonableness of
our constitution, the stability of our credit,
the Inseparabieness of our union, theso are
matters which are well established; but a
new and greater trial awaits the American
people, the trial of materialism. In no
other country has woslth developed so
rapidly and to such an extent, and probahly
nowhere ese does vast wealth fluctunte
so rapidly. We make and unmake million
aires in a day. The dream of wealth Hits
across every pillow, and In hope of Its
realisation some are already risking honor,
reputation, conscience and everything ele
In earth and heaven. We have been made
to realise that the problem of municipal
reform la not so hard pressed by any other
consideration aa by that of the "ledger."
The majority of people know that the
existing condltlona In ninny cities are evil
and unjust, unlawful, hut the conditions
bring profit to many. They would rather
see the Iniquity and Injustice than lose
their profit. Many others do not. gain by
the system, but they would lose If thev
staunchly advocated a chnnge. They would
rather see the conditions continue than
suffer material loss consequent upon the
change. If the question of reform could
be separated from that of profit and loss
the reforma would soon come. Reforms

ment must come or disasier will. Whether

supreme consideration in matters of finance
and government will be decided during the
half century In which you are actively
engaged in life. Your career la sure to
Influence the decision of this matter. If
the decision goes to the side of materialism,
inevitable wreck will follow hard upon. If
It goes to the side of righteousness, at any
cost, success and stability will be Insured,
though its coming may be a long and tedi
. Shall the great gianta. capital and
trades union come to conflict or co-operation
Two Giant Combinations.
There are two very conspicuous features
In our industrial life today. First, there
Is the great combination of capital. In
whluh the wealth ot the many has learned
to act as a unit. In which the word of a
single man determines the Industrlnl move
ment not of a few thousand or hundreds
of thousands of dollars, but of hundreds
of millions, even billions of dollars. It Is
conservatively estimated that nine billions
of capital is directed in the United States
bv one little group of flnanclera wliow
center Is in New York. This concentration
of wealth represents a power more vast
than that held by ancient klngB. Just what
its' Influence will b depends n9t upon
wealth aa an abstraction nor upon .wealth
as a concretion of value, but upon the
character of the men who control it. The
presence of this kingly power of money Jn
society would present a problem sufflcientiy
serious if It stood alone, but this power
does not stand alone. Over against this
tinllath of capital stsnds the Uolleth of
lubor, the tradea union. These are the two
heavyweights of Industry. Shall they pre
sent to us co-operation or combat? That
Is the question. If these two giants Join
in mortal combat anything from a man td
a nation may perish. Whether they will
each exercise toward each the cardinal
virtues with God, Justice, mercy and truth
or cast aside all restraint nnd fiv at each
other's throat, is not yet positively settled.
It will be, however. In the next (Hty years
of tlme You will be a factor in that set
tlement. What you say and do will tend
to cool or heat the passions of men on one
side or the other of this question.
The doctrine of the Trinity has ita place
In theology, and any unsoundness on that
subject is looked upon with alarm. It Is
not at all a difficult matter to And men
whose belief In the Trinity is sll right,
but their practice of fraternity is all wrong.
How long shall we believe that God la
more concerned with creed than wtlh con
duct? It is entirely possible thst the sig
nificant and spectsl message of God to oitr
day Is. "1 will have mercy and not creeds.
let It be the purpose of yur lives of power
to make merciful and fraternal the eco
nomic relations of men.
8. The sanctity of the home. '
The home is quite generally considered
the unit of society by sociologists. If a
nation be looked upon as an organic whole,
then a home mav be regarded ns a life
cell. Cpon the purity and healthfulness
of these life cells depend the vigor anil
permanence of the natlunal life. It Is an
alarming fact that the American home Is
menaced by the evil of divorce. Plvorccs
sre more numerous In the t'nltcd States
than in anv other country where record
are kept, and the number of divorces Is
on the Increase. In 1870 3 B-10 per cent of
the marriages ended In divorce. In I"
the marriages ended In divorce. In 1X90
the percentage of divorces to marriaaes
waa one-half of 1 per cent. In lf It was
seven-tenths of 1 per cent. Desertion of
wife and children by the husbnnd, and of
the husband and children by the wife Is
becoming a Common crime with which the
charity officials of our cities hsve to deal.
This, too, Is the most frequent and the
must easily sbused legal ground for divorce.
Bevond any doubt the sanctity of the
home In America Is menaced by the spirit
In marriage which fosters and makes possi
ble divorce. The union, the home and Its
sanctitv, becomes of greHter vr!ue than
either party In the marriage relation. Many,
however, regard the relation as a conveni
ence to the individual to be thrown aside
like a garment when the tsate changes.
This spirit must be met and defeated or
everything that is good and pure In earth
will be struck with blight. In the followers
of Jesus Christ this divorce evil must find
its strongest opponents.

4. Shall the next epoch In the affairs of
ChrlMlanlty be sscendant or decsdent?
There are condltlona existing in the
realm of Christianity which none of us
can overlook. The attitude of the common
mind toward the Bible snd the church Is
not Jut what It used to be half n century
ago. Bcriptural utterances which were re
cently unchallenged are quite seriously
challenged now. There sr those who fed
that the authority of the Klble la gone.
There are others who believe thst it re
mains Just what it alwavs was. There are
still others mho believe that If the Bible
Is to retain its due snd valuable authority
over the minds and consciences of men
there will be need of change In some direc
tions. The Bible Is not the only reality
with which men hsve to deal. They have
to deal with the material worlj and the
facta concerning it which science is bring
ing more and more Into the strong llsht
of the foreground. They have to deal with
the facta of experience as they are pre
sented to us In the accredited history of
the past and as they appear before us In
the palpable events of today. Whether the
Plhle shall be repudisted by the best edu
cated and best trained minds of our land
for non-ennformlty to fsct and well-tes'l-fisd
eiperlence. or whether Its deathless
truths shall be regnant lit the advancing
order of things, will denend largely on the
wsy in which those who love this Plhle
present It and represent' It In ths next fl'ty
yeara. There are theories about the Bible
ahich men have established snd rlrrulsted.
There are Interpretations which hsve been
humanly and faillbly made, some of which
theories and Interpretations stand In rro
tesque rontradtctlon to established facts
of science and history. The effort to main
tain thst contradiction Is hopeless effort.
The truths of the Bible ran easily maintain
themselves against the enmity of men, but
theories and interpretations cannot main
tain themselves agslnst the undenled and
undeniable fsrts either ot sclsnc or his
tory. Any thsory and any luttruretatiua

which men have claimed to be a part of
the Bible, If found In contradiction to fact
will have to be carefully Investigated. The
Bible, rightly understood and rightly in
terpreted, cannot possibly be out of hnr
motiy with the ordered universe nor with
the course of humsn events as seen in the
past. Your service to the epoch which shall
follow you will be a great one ff you shall
succeed in co-ordinating the deathless
truths of Uod'a word with the undeniable
faots of-'flod's world of matter and of
events In this sge of science and history.
Conclusion Here In relation to these mnt
tera which humanity will have to struggle
wltliMn the next fifty years, you. young
Christians, will And your life work. It
cannot be performed In weakness, It ran
only be performed In power.- He who de
votes himself -simply to a mercantile or
professional career and turn his mind
away from these matters and leaves them
to take their course Is abandoning the
purposes for which God put him Into his
tory. The right thing In International re
lations, the right thing In the Industrial
world, the right thing In economy, the
right thing wtih respect to home and re
ligion, must be done. '
There are two soenes In history which will
help us to appreciate this matter. One Is
the burning if Rome, ,the sight of which
Nero chartled his hwn compositions to an
accompaniment -upon !t!s lyre - The ether
Is the crnclflxion of Jesus Christ, bencnth
whose dripping blood the soldiers snt and
cast dice for Hla garments. In both incl
dents the great event, full of world e!gn!fi
cance, was. absolutely forgotten by those
who groveled Ignobly In the consideration
of less worthy things. Not less Ignoble Is
the man who allows the desire for personal
wealth or honor or power to become his
ruling passion while he lives In a society
In which principles of Justice, mercy and
truth are yet to be wrought out and ap
plied. May It come to pass In your genera
tion that the full God-given power of 'e.
deemed lives shall be brought to bear upod
the questions which are disturbing the
national, municipal and social life. Mo will
you usher In the kingdom for which nine
teen centuries have praved Thy kingdom
come, Thy will be done, In earth aa it Is in
( haotanqua Satate for Chapman.
President John H. Chapman waa Intro
duced as "the optJmlRt of .the, society." he
was greeted by the fluttering of many
handkerchiefs In a Chautauqua salute, and
he responded With the same salute to his
audience. His address waa of a denomina
tional nature, dwelling on the spirit of the
Baptist church and' Its power to do, and
especially on the possibilities of the Baptist
Young People's union. Since each conven
tion has the key word,' he sMd, t was not
out of place td. suggest ia. motto, and quoted
for the convention' motto the word of
the spirit to fcerubabbel. 'Not by might,
nor by power, but by my spirit, salth the
Lord of Hosts." Then he told some of the
things that had been done by the church
with the help ot .the spirit. There never
was a time, he said,- wheji loyalty to the
truth was aa necessary as now, when the
nations ot the. earth are assuming new
political relations to. each . other, and it Is
the duty of the Baptist young people to be
loyal to the truth. I'nlty of state Is an
assured fact in America; the next thing
ought to be the tinlty of purpose of Chris
tian young men and women. .
