Rev. F.dwln Hart Jenks. D. L.. paator ,
of the First Presbyterian churcli. gave an .
Interesting exposition yesterday morning
of the pre-eminence of Christ. Dr. Jenks
said there was abundant proof that Jestta
Chrlat was pre-eminent among the emi
nent personalities of the world and U
today, more than any time since His ap-1
pea ranee on earth, close to men who may
look to Him as an Ideal character of a
"At Carvary." said the minister. , "there
was a drama, with Christ In the dignity
of hla manhood, saying. 'Father, forgive
them, for they know not what they do';
and, on the other hand, the mob.
"That picture showed the heights and
deptha of human character and It com
mands us to look on the matchless charac
ter of Jesus Christ and draws some estimate
of Him. The passing centuries have
given us a clear perpostlve and have
dissipated ' the shadows cast around
Hla character. God said. 'Behold! Thla
Is my beloved Son, In whom I am well
pleased; hear ye Him. Ood conceived
the Ideal of a perfect man to walk among
us as an example and none of the world's
great philosopher's have sounded the
depths of life as Christ did. We should
not think that Christ la too high for us.
He la close enough to men to walk with
them, and I believe that If He were to
come to earth today He would even re
ceive vthe harlot who came in repentance.
There Is nothing better In life for men
than to Imitate Christ. The character of
Christ Is the best manifestation of God
'God's great sacrifice for sin waa Christ.
who waa an atonement for us. He is
with lis an a reflection of the glory of
God. A we look at Jesus Christ we will
become like Him."

Speaks at First Methodist.
rtev. K. 8. Chapman of California, who Is
conducting a crusade for the total elimina
tion of the legalised saloon, lectured yester
day afternoon at the First Methodist
hurci. His subject w'aa "A Stainless
Flag." and he took the position the opera
tion of a "higher law'' than human enact
ment would force the courts to deny tha
right of civil government to license saloons.
"I'm going to publish this address." ha
said, "and publish It gratuitously, and I
am going to distribute 100,000 in Omaha. I
think It will take that many here. When

where the First Mathodlst church was

when our supreme court will render a deci

is coming, it l predicted by the trend of
things for years. It wfll not do everything

"The apostle says civil government ls a
minister of Ood for good and if It consent

young people to ruin It Is not such. Every
law book that Is ' worth the paper It Is
written on tells us government Is forme
to prevent evil and promote good. Any
'.aw that allows the licensed saloon to exist
la In violation of the eternal law of right,"
and the supreme court will some time rec

will be rendered.''

Kev. T. V. Moore preached at Weet
inlnater Presbyterian church yesterday
morning since the return of himself and
Mrs. , Moore from Europe. The subject
chosen, "Life," pathetically recalled the
death of Dr. Moore's daughter. Miss Grace,
In Scotland, a few weeks ago.
-y"What is life and what doea life mean

Moore. "All definitions of life are vague.

TAX-DODGING BY' RAILROADS
Chlcaao Makes m Move to Collect
What Is Its Dae froaa the
Corporation Counsel J. Hamilton Lewis
of Chicago has written a letter to the
Illinois State Board of Equalisation In
sisting on a revision of assessments of
railroad property, so that these corpora
tions shall pay their Just proportion of
taxes. The letter asserts that Cook county
and the city of Chicago have, been cheated
out of hundreds ,of thousands of dollars
of taxes each year through undervalua
tions of railroad capital stock, .
The vital point of the argument of the
corporation counsel Is his assertion that
the railroads are permitted to .make re
turns pot In accordance with law., and are
assessed on such returns rather than in
accordance with the law. This condition
of things, the corporation counsel aays, re
sulted In the loss of 1367,365 to the city
of Chicago on the assessments for 1906.
'As the corporation counsel of - the city
of Chicago," says Mr. Lewis, at the be
ginning of his letter, "and having as a
part of my honorable duty the aiding of
the county officials In securing to the city
of Chicago the greatest amount of the
tax fund due it. I take the liberty to bring
to the attention of the board that after
Investigation I have reached the conclu
sion that your honorable board, through
a misconstruction of the law, has for the
single year of 1906 alone permitted the
railroads of the state of Illinois, particu
larly those entering the city of Chicago,
to deprive the city of many thousands of
"As an Illustration of the position which
I respectfully take by this memorial, I call
to your attention that by the procea-- of
your honorable board the six principal roads
entering the city of Chicago and having- fa
cilities at this point, towit: The Chicago
at Indiana, the Chicago A Eastern Illi
nois, the Chicago, Burlington sV Qulncy,
the Chicago Terminal Tranafer company,
he Chicago ft Northwestern and the Chi
cago 4e Alton, have been permitted to es
cape aaaeaaments upon their property.
"Had the assessment been laid as I re
spectfully Insist under the law It should.
for the year 1906 the city of Chicago would
have realized for Itself, apart from the
county or the state, the sum of S230.MS."
Proceeding, the corporation counsel calls
attention to the forty roads running- out ol
Chicago. Assessment of them roads on the
basis laid down for the six roads named
would mean STGO.HW more taxes for the
city, according to Mr. Lewie, for the year
1906. For 1906 the corporation counsel asks
aseesnments not only In accordance with
hla Interpretation of the law.' but also back
assessments to the year 1877.
After quoting- the law requiring sworn
reports from railroads, disclosing the stock
paid up and the valuation of tangible prop
erty. Including franchises, and the penalty
for violation tl.0"0 to tlo.000 for each of
fensethe corporation counsel continues:
'The railroads were aseessed upon their
capital stock for 1873 at tM.OU,000; In 1874
at sui.ooo.aoo; la iat&. at ra.ooo.ooo. in tat,
at 110.000.000 tspraklng In round figures).
' You will notice that as the state In
creased In population and the railroads In
created In slxe. In earnings, and In value,
the sssessments decreased In proportion."

GOD THE FOUNTAIN HOM WHICH IT FLOWS
Relare of lam Theme f First of Sevea
Dlaeearsea to Re Delivered
at Crelahtea talverstty
Rev. Thrmias Kwlng Shetmau, S. J., of
Chicago, son of the lafe General W. T.
Sherman, Sunday night delivered the first
of seven lecture to non-Catholics whlh
he Is to deliver at Crelghton university
hall. He had a large audience. Choos
ing for his theme, "The Reign of Law."
he showed iiow all laws must of neces
sity come from the same fountain head,
which of course was the Maker.
"Although the existence of a personal
God Is the first principle of all religion,
still I And many people in doubt of this."
said Father Sherman, "and I will attempt'
to prove by this lecture that where there
Is law there must be a lawmaker and when
ynu see the action of these laws you know
some mnster mind must have framrd them.
The reign of law Is transparent as well
as the lawmaker and the foremost virtue
of the human heart is religion.
"Take the mineral world, the world
which Is dead. Take Ice, for Instance.
Why Is It fhat every drop of water takes
the shape of a hexagonal prism when II
reaches thirty-two degrees? They are
obeying a command. Every form of min
eral hss Its yaws of crystallization. Thus
the mineral world preaches of the great
Creator, for the reign of the lawmaker
Is seen on all sides.
"In the vegetable world, consider all the
green surface of mother earth and think
how you have life out of death. You have
springing up the blade, the plant, the tree.
How is it the little seed has the power of
penetrating the dead world and whirling
forth a tree in life? What gave the
power to the srd to make life from death?
You say the law of vegetable life. Did
the plant give to Its own seed the power
to make another seed? These all show
the glory of the great Lawmaker.
Look at the Animate.
"Let us look at animate life, which, aa
It were, drinks In all the other life. Sight,
hearing doea not make itself. Take
the egg you ate for breakfast. Warmth
and tlnto would have made a thing of life
of that. How? No one knows. It Is
ons of the laws of Uod. The wisdom of
the maker is shown at all times In animal
life. The reign of law In ths reign' of the
lawmaker. God Is clearly known to us
In the moral law which Is our own con
science. "Think what conscience is. Conscience Is
not merely a knowledge of right and
wrong. Conscience is not sentiment be
cause sentiment conies and goes. Con
science works within and Ita voice rings
within. Here la a power which makes for
all good. It fights for the Just, It Judges
and condemns and punishes. It knows noth
ing higher. It Judges the supreme court of
the land. . Conscience Is the voice of God
within the human soul.
"Both by the physical laws of the world
and by the laws of conscience we are sure
of existence of a personal, God, and our
first duty Is to that God. As he Is perfect
we owe Him perpetual praise and the only
reaaonable attitude Is to rely on God."

Boyd last night. The play has been en
tirely recast, but It has lost none of Its
attractiveness Irt the change. Will 'J.
Block, who presents.lt this year, has se
lected a very capable and popular trio for
the principal comedy parts, namely: Eltic
Fay as The Chorus GUI, Neil McNeil as
Welch Rarebit and Knox Wilson as April

nie and Adele Oswald Is well fitted in
every way for the part of the Jack of
Hearts. Allan Steel's voice was In bad
condition, making It hard for him to measure-up
to the standard In several catchy
musical numbers. The remainder of tha
cast Is good and tho chorus fulfills all the
requirements aa to beauty and voice.
It was Elfle Kay who won the ilrst real
demonstration last night In her Introduc
tory song. "The Belle of Baldhcad Row."
Then came Rarebit with "The Wedding of
the Chafing Dish and the Alcohol Lamp."
and April Fool In "April Fool Dfttles"

Neil McNeil and Knox Wlls-on are a

The bill, which Is a very good one,
opened yesterday to two packed houses,
suggesting that, carnival week la not yet
over. Carter nd Bluford start It off
with a spectacular act that was well re
ceived. Gardiner-and Maddern, Georgia
and Joseph, respectively, are among the
topllners, presenting; a little farce comedy
bit, "Too Many Darlings." They produce
several unusually clever things. James
F. Kelly and Aorta M. Kent, not at all
strangers to vaudeville admirers, are
there with some excellent Jokes and
pranks. Their work, like that of Miss
Gardiner and Mr. Maddern, Is quite re
freshing and Interesting. Miss Kent dis
plays superior imitative qualities in her
mimic of the bowery maid, on which It
would be difficult to improve. Vernon,
the ventriloquist with his family of dum
mies, claims a big place on the program.
He has half a dosen "dead ones" Into
whom he Infuses the Illusive talk with
great skill and to the utmost delight of
the audience. Hla acts are interesting
and comical. The Wilson brothers, Ger
man comedians and singers, and the Re Iff
brothers, dancers and singers, lit Into
their places with unerring precision. The
Wilsons are exceedingly funny and the
Ret fTs so clever at dancing that their
superiors are not easily discovered. Their
dancing is of the very highest order.
Jules Relff waa unable yesterday to do
his part of the singing, because of a
j throat affection which. It Is hoped, will
be overcome before tonight. His brother,
George, however, did not alkw the duo'a
work to lag on that account.

Intense pnsxlons of which the heart Is ca- '

though fome of the scenes are very tense.
The principal roles nre assigned to Mr.
Albert Morrison and to Miss Lorna Klllott.
whose lives have been linked In the bond
of matrimony under the most peculiar cir
