Re. Newman Hall Burdlck preached at
tha Second Preabytertan church Sunday
tight OB tha relation of the laborlnamen
d tha church. "It la not my Intention to
at tempt to defend alt the labor unions have
moo." saM Mr. Burdlck. "or what spirit
th ermroa fcaa manifested on occasions. It
la any purpose to show the church and
labor have Interests In common. Many j
Votoaa are being raised In the land today
fend aorne are discordant, hut harmony Is
benettk It all. I am aorry the topic of the
renewal of the Interest the church has
taken la the labor movement has been left
frora the program of speakers on the pro
(rams' for the coming week.
Tm church end labor have many In
tercet In common. The main principles
which underlie -the labor movement can
be endorsed by all Christians." Mr. Bur
tok read the pledge of the Federation of
There la not a single clause to which a
Christian could not subscribe. The church
fiaa always stood for all of these. Both
atan4 for the betterment of the Industrial
aad social conditions and both have ac
eampllahed much In this respect. Both
tand for better homes, better cities, better
government nd a better country.
-t bare little use for a religion which
dee sjot deal with the present condition of
ma well as his condition In the life to
coma. The church goes farther than the
labor anions and talks of the life beyond.
Both stand for Justice or as President
UnnscicTt puts It, 'for a square deal.' Labor
undertakes to nee men are not discrtmi
Bated against and .the church preaches the
game thing. Both stand for high morality
and respect for womanhood and to be con
siderate for widows and orphans. In some
eoantrtes the women are treated aa cattle.
1BoUi claim a leader In Jesua Christ. If
won read addresses of labor leaders you
amnld see reference to Jesus Christ, the
laboring man's champion. If there Is any
on thing the church standa for It la Jesus
' breaad for Co-ooeratloa.
"""On . these principles there Is sufficient
to warrant a closer sympathy and co-operation
between the church and labor. The
church needs every laboring man and the
laboring men need the church. One cannot
get along without the other.
"Objection has been raised against the
church that It Is dominated by the rich
tnen who use the church against the poor
man's Interest- This fancied fault is one
reason why he church and labor have not
been closer In times past. I deny the church
la being dominated by the rich men. Rich
men arc sometimes In authority In the
eharch but this la no reason why they should
be disloyal to the church. It Is not necee
eerily because of wealth that a man la tin.
faithful, to hla trust. It Is the character of
the man. The poor man contributes more
In proportion to hla wealth than the rich.
The larger bequests of the rich do not
support the church. It Is the continual
giving of the poorer men which keep the
church moving. Fitness and ability should
rule In a church.
"Another objection Is raised that the
church stands for the present Industrial
conditions. The church haa never made an
official utterance of the kind. The church
standa for what Is good In any and every
Industrial system, Another objection l that
tko ministry ! a ploaed shop, and therefore
fc.ve ne right to preach against a' closes,
hop. , That la not true. Men who were not
snembcra of any ministerial association
have been great preachers. It ' Is for the
people to. say whether they will listen to
them. The church never limits Its appren.
tloea for fear of competition but is oontlnu
ally urging young men to enter the
' ministry. . No association of ministers tries
to enforce a uniform scale of wages.
have nothing to, say concerning the closed
Mr, Burdlck, read letters from John
Mitchell. John B. Lennon. Homer D. Call
and P. J. Polan, labor leadera, saying they
thought the church and labor ahould get
closer together, .
.'The church and the laboring men should
get together,", added Mr. Burdlck. "The
church opens her doors and Invites them
In, saying It will help to Improve their con
dltion.. Ood hasten the nuptial . day of
labor and the church."

The lamentations and doubta of the
prophet, Habakkuk. and his faith In God.
despite the unavenged wrongs he saw
about him were given modern application
by Rer. H. C. Herring at the First Con

eald In part: ...
"The whole problem before the prophet

DEAN BEECHER REBUKES DOUBTER
aye Faolt-Fladera Are Rot Striving
for God. '
Dean Beecher s sermon at Trinity eathe-
dral Sunday morning was a rebuk to the I
challenging Questions of doubters aa to
the truth of some of the apparently unex-
plalnable statements of the scripture.
Who waa Adam 7 ,
Why did Adam fall?"
Vfho was Cain's wlfoT"
"How csn you explain the sun standing I
still on Gideon ?'
If God is merciful and all powerful, how
about the existence of pain?"
These are some of the current questions
mentioned by Peaa Beecher. The text
was from the 19th chapter of Luke, In
which a certain lawyer, having questioned
Jesus aa to the way to Inherit eternal life,
and having been told among other things
lO 1DV. aim hcikiiuvi ., mm uihwvim wmvu
'and who la my neighbor!" ,
It waa with a spirit of patronising su
periority that the Jawyer asked tbjs ques
tion." ssld the speaker. "And la It with a
spirit of self-essutped Intellectual super
iority that men whose, thought and habits
arc foreign to spiritually presume today
to challenge th apparently , unexplalnsble
mysteries , of the Christian faith? W
squabble over technicalities until we lose
grasp on the fundamentals. ' The church
Is falling in the task set before It because
so few are. vitally Interested In Its success.
"The men who ask these questions you
do not see working for God. and you never
hesr of them as consistently doing any
thing for - the cause of the Christian re
ligion. Toif never hear busy people argu
ing about technicalities. God aaya act.
make yourself true, and you will not be
bothered about technicalities. It Is Idle to
squsbble on these questions simply to try
to make the law conform to your opinion
and my opinion agree with yours."

Waero Ho Quickly- Weat
The visit of th Cow Puncher. Hal Reld'a
plav, to the Krug theater laat week recalled
to Ted Well, a Mlasourlan at th Mer
chants, that Hal Reld had been a auccess
other than as actor and author. Hs told
Bom years ago Hal Reld got stranded
In a little Missouri town, I think Salis
bury, down on the Wabash. He landed
In the place absolutely on his uppers, his
company having gone to pieces a few day
before. Reld had played 'A Paughter of
th Confederacy.' In Salisbury, and wss ac
quslnted with Pel Willis, an old actor who
lived in the village and, therefore, when
he went bsoke In tha,t county hs headed for
Salisbury. He began at oace to organise
a homo talent company to put on the
"Paughter of the Confederacy, giving
Willis one of the leading parts.
"Of course It took several weeks to whip
the amateurs Into line, and Reld couldn't
be Idle during thst period. There was one
splendid reason why. His first stunt that
attracted the villagers was when he hyp
notizedone of the natives. Thst waa a
feat seldom heard of and never witnessed
In Salisbury. It made a decided hit. The
next day Reld went a little farther and
after hypnotising his victim ran a needle
through his face and lips.
"It didn't take news of these stunts long
to travel over th county and soon farmers
were coming to town to see the wonderful
man. One day an old man, who had been
an Invalid for years, waa wheeled up to the
hotel where Reld was stopping.
" 'I heard you could hypnotise people,
the old man said upon being presented to
Has Saperhfcmaa Powers.
" Tes sir, my good friend, replied Reld
'I have certain powers with which God
haa endowed me.'
' 'I 'low you might help me git rid of
this here rheumatis, then,' ssld the Invalid,
" 'Rheumatism? Well you have come to
the. right place, . my man,' said Reid.
'Rheumatism Is my specialty.'
"With that he made a few gyrations in
front of the invalid and then, pointing his
fingers straight at him, 'he aald: 'Oct up
and walk; get up, I soy.'
"The old man hesitated and then, to -the
surprise of his neighbors and those who
had known him for years, he got up and
"This spread Ilka wildfire, and It Is the
honest truth, before the week was out Hal
Reld was curing chronic Invalids who
hsdn't walked for years. Men brought their
Invalid wives twenty miles to town and
women brought their husbands in to see
the healer. It la needless to say when the
'Daughter of the Confederacy' . waa pre
sented at. the opera house a crowd was ln
attendance. So great an Impression did
Reld make, the clthtens prevailed upon him
to remain another month and give another
show. He went out of Salisbury like a
millionaire, and he left there $168, a nucleus
for a fund to buy a hose cart and fire
engine for the town."
