Fire Tears of h area's
The special services Sunday at the First
1'resbytcrlsn church in celebration of the
fiftieth anniversary of the organisation of ,
the cnngnegatlnn attracted congregations
which completely filled the edifice morning,
afternoon and evening. An interesting
and likewise the principal feature of the '
morning service ws the arldres of Rev.
Thomas H. Clcland, D. D., who was pas
tor of th church from August, lSt, to
June. 1(2. Mis topic. "The First Twenty
five Years ot the History of the Church,"
was mainly historical, his sddres being In
part as follows:
A review of s lislf rer,tury- history of
sn Individual church affords us an oppor
tunity to estimate somewhat the value and
Influence of this Imperitim In lrnprio. The
founder of Chrlstlsnltv dscrlbes It as the
"salt of tha earth." the "light of the
world," thus, fixing the Itidienensableness
to the world. Eliminate the silent but con
tinuous impact of Christian tiiouarht and
godly llvlna: from the body politic and you
crale a Sodom on whose chief business
corner no Insurstice company would take
a risk, and within whose precincts no wise
man would think of rearing a household
any more than he would choose Sodom in
the days of Abraham, or Paris during the
French revolution. Fifty years history
of thla church. If It has been true to its
mission and Master mesna that Christ has
ben living and shining and leavening the
life of this city and commnwealth.
What is true then In theory has become
history. Fifty-two years ago two men met
on a steamer ascending the Missouri. The
one, Thomas Officer, was to establish a
businesa here, the other, James B. Rue, to
form a school for the training of the Pres-
oyeenan cnurcn. . rney induced a brother-in-law
of Mr. Rue, Rev. John H. Hancock,
to come out front Kentucky under the
board of domestic missions to collect the
scattered flock of God in this frontier town
and set up the banner of the cross. To
help In building the state, and in extend
ing the kingdom of Ood. After o
months' labor It was decided to organize
a church. Accordingly the veteran mis
sionary. Rev. I., a. Bell, organised this
corporation Into a church on the 12th of
October. 1S56, In the third story of the Em
pire block on Broadway, over the store of
Mr. Snow, and placed It under the care of
Des Moines presbytery. The thirteen
charter members m-ere Narclssa Beck. Mi

J. Hancock. Henry P. Warren. Hannah L,.
Warren, James B. Rue, Thomas and Elia
aheth M. Officer and Susan l.ee, a mute.
Thomaa Officer and James B. Rue were
chosen ruling elders and C. W. Boyers dea
Flrat Foaadatloa Laid.
The foundation of a permanent brick house
of worship was laid In 1K67, on the site of
the present edifice, but owing to the
stringency of the times and the civil mar.
the foundation remained a promise until
1, when the superstructure waa erected,
tho congregation worshiping In the base
ment lecture room until November, 1st.
A chain of circumstances brought ' the
speaker. Just out of Princeton, to become
the pastor of the church, which ha did
Aitrnat 1, 18. Ho came expecting to re
main a few weeks and remained sixteen
years. The church was worshiping In the
lecture room and had a roll of seventy
five resident members, earnest and deter
mined. , is..-. . t -. .1 .-, 1 .
On November IS of tht year, or In !
than tnree mouths, the main audience room
was completed and dedicated free of debt,
the whole coat. Including furniture and lot,
$17,270. Tho sealous ladies of the church
htid a large part In raising the funds.
When your speaker left the church In -lsxj
it had a membership of 360. live hundred
and one were added during the sixteen
years' pastorate. On one occasion we re
ceived seventy-four on profession. The
Sabbath school wa always flourishing, and
the prayer meeting the liest I have avrr
known. The church had a young peo
ple's meeting of 100 members in the dsy
before the Christ is n Endeavor.
The church has been fortunate In II
pastors. It 1 due to history to tell how
pivotal this church has been In establish
ing the wider kingdom of Ood. In ld7.
whan your speaker waa 24 years of age,
he was ordained, and on the same d.iy
lie was made chairman of tlie committee
of missions for tho Presbytery of the Mis
souri river, whose territory extended from
Wintersot. la., to Sacramento, Cel., and
from the Canadian to the Mexican borders.
There were less than six ministers on
either side of the river of the Presbyterian
faith. The development of this vast region
hinged for a time m this churoh. The
congregation cheerfully loaned money for
the organisation and dedication of churches
in Iowa and Nebraska and made frequent
contributions to heln the struggling
churches on the prairie. In the. establish
ment of what now comprises Ave synods,
twenty-seven presbyteries, iu churches and
over 70.0UO communicants, this congregation
has had no small part.
Wide laaaeare of Cawrch
The Influence this church has had only
the recording angel knows. Some have
grown up who are called millionaire, who
were poor boys among us. They are using
their wealth wisely, one such supporting
a college and mission from his own fortune.
Others adorn the judicial bench and legis
lative halls and as such have been potent
factors In the nation. Nut a few of the
women of the church have become trarhet
and havo ministered to the establishment
of the hospitals for the e4''k and of homes
for the friendless. Some have gone to
preach the gospel and others to learn
commercial lite with honor and social Ufa
with sobriety and cleaaliness. They have
all been Imperfect - men and have done
less than they tulght, but Council Bluffs
as a city. Iowa aa a state, and this nation
has felt the heart throb of true souls, who
have gone out from you, and many atill
remain who have done what they could
for God and the race.
What story thla church shall tall, what
history it ahall make In the next semi
centennial, no one can predict, but all can
believe and. pray that It ahall be a larger,
truer, and greater history.

charier members, but three survive. Mrs.
Sarah E. Pusey, Mrs.- Hsnna I.. Warren

organisation, 1.4) members have been re
ceived Into tho church" ami Its membership

service was held, at which Dr. Cleland and
Vr. Stephen Phelps officiated. ., and new
members wero received. The address was
made by th pastor. Rev. Marcus P. He
Clnr. who lock a hi subject "Each One's
Record." There waa special music at each
of the three services.

Rev. Stephen Phelps, pastor of the chureh
from February, 17. to July, ISM, delivered
th address at the evening service, taking
"Memorial" a his theme. Dr. Phelps told
of what the First Presbyterian church had
accomplished In Council Bluffs, of how the
money was raised for the erection ot the
present edlfto and the addition containing
the parlors and Sunday school rooms. In
concluding bis address he urgxj the con
gregation to erect a manse for its pastor
as a memorial to the semi-centennial an
niversary or falling that, to support a mis
sionary either at horn or In the foreign
field. The congregation was fully able to
do both, erect a mans and support a mis
sionary. It said. If It cared to do so.

A case will be submitted to the supreme
court at the sitting this week which In
volves the question of whether or not It Is
obtaining money under false pretenses for
a man to borrow money from a woman on
the promise that aa soon as he is estab
lished In a business by the aid of her funds,
they will get married. If he failed to marry
her. In the Polk county district court
Judge W. H. -Mcllenry sustained a demurrer
i to an Indictment In the case of the stale
against J. W. Holllrursworth, the demurrer,
being on the ground that the facts stated
did not constitute the offense of obtaining
money under false pretenses and further
that the facts. If true, did not constitute an
offense punishable by law.
In the argument of the attorney general,
filed with the clerk of tho supreme court,
it Is claimed, in substance, that such rul
ings are one of the reasons why the ad
ministration of justice at times falls Into
lllrepute. ' . .,...
Holllngsworth was. indicted by the Polk
county district court two years ago. The
charge against him was that he induced
Mrs. Vella W. Rockwood, a widow of Des
Moines, living at 600 East Grand avenue.
to part with $801) of her money on a promise
of marriage. It was charged on the part
of the state that Holllugn worth waa mar
ried to another woman three days before
he obtained the money from Mrs. Rock
wood, or on June 38. 1903. and that he pre
tended that he would go to Sioux Falls,
South Dakota, and establlah himself In
business by use of the widow's money snd
that they would then get married, the
wedding day being set for July 15, 19"3.
Statistics on Tr nancy.
The statistics on truancy In the state of
Iowa, that will make up one of the' main
features of the report of State Superin
tendent Riggs, which is now being pre
pared, show that in a large number of in
stanoes the fact that a child is a truant is
to be laid to the door of the parent. This
Is a surprise to many educators of the
state, and In a surprising number of case
the school officials have had to resort to
punishing the parents by Imprisonment be
fore they could induce them to obey the
law and allow the children to attend school.
The reports now are nearly all In. The
county and city superintendents have beep
asked to file reports for this feature of the
report. The county superintendents give
the results of tha prosecutions In all the
schools of the county, snd the city superin
tendents are asked especially concerning
the law in the city, both aa to the compul
sory attendance law and tho child labor
law. The main feature of the comments of
the superintendents and principals Is that
the lsw has worked to cause pupils who
had a tendency to be Irregular In their at-
t str :j n - t ,- I. ruiilu. O-- . . 1.
iions agkea ny tne state superintendent Is
whether the law for compulsory attendance
is operating to make the required sixteen
week' attendance a sort of standard length
of attendance, after which the bulk of the
scholar would drop out. The rerpom-es
