CHURCH CROWDED BEYOND CAPACITY
Rev. Jaaaes O'May Preaches Opening
Sermon and Will Have Charge
Darlag the Remainder of
the Present Week.
The attendance last night at the opening
service of the union revival meetings at
the First Presbyterian church la considered
by those In charge to Indicate that possibly
overflow meetings will have to be held as
the revival progresses. Every seat was oc
cupted, while many had to be content with
standing room, and It Is said that quite a
number, falling to secure seats, went away,
Rev. James O' May, pastor of Broadway
Methodist church, la In charge of the even
Ing services for the week, and Rev. W. B.
Clemmer. pastor of the First Christian
church, will assume charge next week. Rev,
O. O. Smith, D. D., pastor of the First
Congregational church. Is to take charge
the third week. This Is as far as arrange
ments have been made.
Afternoon meetings, beginning at I o'clock,
will be started Tuesday, and for the first
week will be In charge of Rev. G. W. Sny
der, pastor of St. John's English Lutheran
church. The evening meetings will be held
dally, except Saturdays. A meeting of the
Pastors' association will be held this morn
ing at the public library to discuss and ar
range details of the revival services.
The meeting of the young people of the
several churches participating In the re
vival service, held last evening at St. John's
Lutheran church prior to the general meet
ing at the Presbyterian church, was largely
attended and proved a great success under
the leadership of J. W. Hoagland of the
Flret Presbyterian church. There was some
excellent singing under the direction of
Prof. Cart F. Stough, and the young people
were evidently much Interested In the meet
ing. A pleasing feature of the opening service
at the First Presbyterian church last even
ing, and what promises to continue so dur
ing the revival, was the singing of Rev.
Mott Mitchell, the "singing evangelist"
from Coin, Ia. Rev. Mitchell Is gifted with
a splendid high tenor voice, which was
heard to advantage last evening In the solo,
"Lead Mo Gently Home." Rev. Mr. Mitch
ell Is assisted by a chorus choir made up
from the choirs of the several churches
participating In the revival. It was found
last evening that the space alloted for the
choir was Inadequate and an additional
platform will be erected today.
Opening: Sermon of Series.
'. For the opening sermon last evening Rev.
James 0May took as his text, "He Loved
Us." saying. In part:
' The preachers and churches who are en-
J raged in these meetings have but one ob
ect in view and that Is to present Jesus
Christ. We will not engage In any extend -d
argument. We will not endeavor to foist
any particular creed. We will not oppose
or dispute any denominational Ideas. We
will endeavor not to over plead or Inde
corously persuade. Before we claimed
church membership we claimed to be gen
tlemen and as such we desire to remain
after these meetlnga are closed. These
meetings are not for the purpose of dis
playing mental acropaUcs, or personal ec
clesiastical views, but. simply to magnify
the-religion of the Man of Galilee. When
John the Rantlst was asked what he waj.
prophet or. Messiah, he replied that he
was only a voice. When Isaiah met the
Lord he hid himself In his humility. I
believe that every one connected with- this
movement should emulate these characters
in the elimination of self from this move
ment. In accordance with this Idea of personal
elimination I have chosen a Simple text. It
has little of argument in It 'and yet It Is
the final appeal of all argument. There are
no males of logic In Its lines and yet It
sh the logical conclusion ot tne entire gos
pel. . It Is a representation rather tnan a
thing to be demonstrated. It is a picture
rather than a debate. The words are. "He
loved us." In its entirety It reads, "the
love with which He first loved us." but I
frefer to use the last three words. "He
Divine love finally will conquer this
world. Divine love finds Its answer In the
love of the human breast. Link God's love
to man's love and the problem of the hu
man race Is solved.
' If man's love is resistless, God's love Is
omnipotent. The old nations rejected this
love but It Is winning In spite of rejec
tion. The modern world is trying to freeze
tt away but an Iceberg might just as well
try to freese a sunbeam. God's love Is
resistlessly omnipotent snd It will ulti
mately prevail. The old Jewish world
would not hear the prophets but God still
loved on. The chosen people went off again
and again Into lustful Idolatry, but God
still loved on and on again. The early
churches quarreled until It seemed as If
God would be out of patience but He loved
ieenVso Indifferent' to God that It woud
seem that He would go off snd make an
other world and give this over to another
chaos of destruction, but He don't, he loves
It. loves it with mighty fervor. And listen.
friends, that love Is going to win out.
It was because of this love these preach-
ers and these churches sre here working
In this union effort. It Is no play day af
fair. It ia serious and Important. It Is
no plan for entertainment nor mutual ap
preciation. It ia far the suhllmest of pur
poses; to help men to meet their Christ.
For this we will toll snd for this we will
pray and God grant that with this we will
go again to our several homes.

FOOD HEADQUARTERS AT
TWO WATER WORKS PROPOSALS
One Is to Purchase Present Plant If
Price Is Within Reach.
Exactly what recommendations wiuld
be made to the city council at its meet
ing tonicht had not been definitely de
cided yesterday by the special water
works committee, it was stated. The
committee Is scheduled for another meet
ing, at whl"h Mr. Kiersted, the expert
hydraulic engineer, will be present, this
afternoon In the office of City Solicitor
Kimball, At this conference. It Is under
stood, the committee will come to some
final conclusion and the report to be made
to the city council will be formulated at
Chairman Wallace or the members of
the special committee are not Inclined to
take the public Into their confidence, but
from another and an authoritative source.
It Is said that the committee will make
two recommendations to the city council.
One will recommend municipal ownership,
the price to be offered the water works
company for Its plant, however, ript to
exceed the amount to which the city can
Increase Its bonded Indebtedness for this
purpose. The other recommendation will
be the granting of a new franchise to the
water works company on certain con
ditions. One of the principal conditions. It Is
stated, on which a new franchise will be
granted the company Is that It will enter
Into a contract with the city to carry out
the Improvements In its sen-Ice suggested
by Expert Kiersted In his report to the
special water works committee. These
Improvements, as estimated by Mr. Kier
sted, will entail an expenditure by the
company of over f 100,000,' and are as fol

Reinforcing mains In business dis
New pumping engine and piping.. 28,175
Extensions and improvements of

Brick building at Thirty-seventh
street pumping station 6,760
Regarding the schedule of rates pro
vided a new franchise was decided upon,
the city official from whom the above In
formation was obtained, stated that Mr.
Kiersted had submitted a schedule In his
report and this probably would be taken
as a basis upon which U come to some
agreement with the water works com
pany on this phase of the question. "Once
It Is decided to grant the water works
company a new franchise, I do not ex
pect there will be much trouble In com
ing to an agreement relative to rates,"
said the official.
While it Is understood that certain
members of the city council are still In
favor of municipal ownership. It Is be
lieved that a majority of the council Is
opposed to this proposition. Those op
posing the purchase by the city of the
water works plant are, of the opinion
that the more economic proposition would
be to allow the present company to con
tinue to operate the . plant. Not. only
would the latter course undoubtedly re
lieve the city from what would likely
prove costly and lengthy litigation, but
It would save the city from Incurring a
heavy Indebtedness, which. If the plant
under municipal ownerships failed to
prove a paying Investment, would prove
an expensive experiment.
, In his report Mr. Kiersted placed his es
timate of the present value of the water
works plant at 2480.190. to which he added
a "going" value ot 120,743, making the total
value (500, $48. To reproduce the present
plant, however, Mr. Kiersted estimated the
cost at 1534.445, to which would have to be
added his estimate of 2107.182 for the needed
extensions and Improvements. While some
of the members of the special water works
committee are optimistic enough to declare
that In the event of the water works de
clining to accept the offer for purchase by
the city, should municipal ownership be
decided upon, the city could proceed to
construct a new plant, by others this Is
not considered feasible.
While the members of the special water
works committee are uncommunicative and
other members of the city council are not
In a position to express any opinion until
they receive the report from the special
committee, present Indications are that an
agreement will probably be reached between
i the city council and the management of
I th WBter company whereby the
company will be granted a new franchise
of a sufficient term to warrant It making
the expenditure In carrying out the exten
sions and Improvements In the service sug-
gested by Mr. Kiersted. In the event of
the city council deciding on the latter solu
tion of ths matter, the question of grant
ing a franchise would have to be submitted
to the people at a special election for their
Manager Hart declined to discuss the mat
ter until some action one way or the other
Is taken by the city council.

TALE OF BOLTING D0LL1VER

U Elect Cummini Senator.
NOT LOVE fOR HIM, BUT TO SPITE FORMER
Roth Houses Expect to Organise ana
Have the Committees Karnes
on the First Day of
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, Jan. 13.-(Speclal.) One
thing Is lacking. In the opinion of many, to
elect Governor Cummins senator Instead
of Dolllver. That one thing Is a leader to
organise the movement and get the votes,
and It begins to look every day as though
a leader was more likely to appear. The
leader must be a stand-patter. The Cum
mins followers could organise the move
ment and Governor Cummins could himself
start the movement by simply saying that
he would accept the election, but he will not
do that and his followers will not start the
movement to organise the votes for tho rea
son that the people of the state would con
elder It playing a trick on Dolllver and It
would make a martyr of Dolllver. More
than twenty stand-patters stand ready to
vote for Cummins and have made overtures
to the Cummins leaders, but they have not
done It In the open. They are not suffi
cient In number, either, to turn the trick.
If one stand-patter would actively take the
field and organize the stand-pntters enough
votes. It la alleged, could quickly be secured
to elect Cummlna The anomaly of stand
patters voting for Cummins scms odd, but It
Is simply a case of where they are more op
posed to Dolllver than they are to Cum,
mlns. The candidacy of Chase and ToWn
for district attorney rf northern Iowa, and
their threat against Dolllver If he does not
commit himself on their appointment. Is
keeping the situation In such a feverish
state that no one can forecast the results.
Governor Cummins personally believes that
Dolllver will be elected and that there Is
not the slightest danger of his being de
feated. But Cummins' friends believe that
the defeat of Dolllver would be the easiest
thing that ever happened.
Thirty-second General Assembly.
The Thirty-second general assembly of
oTf-y. will convene at 10 o'clock tomorrow,
morning. Each house will meet In Its re
spective chamber. The temporary organiza
tion will be formed In the forenoon and the
permanent organization In the afternoon.
Then both houses will' adjourn till the next
day, when they will meet to hear the gov
ernor deliver his message to the legisla
ture. The committees In the house will be
announced by Speaker Kendall Monday aft
ernoon. The committees In the senate will
not be announced till Thursday or Friday,
after the Inaugural. This year there will
be two additional committees In the house.
One will be a committee on public accounts.
The proposed bill to subject county accounts
to state Inspection will be referred to that
committee, with other bills of the kind.
The other committee will be a committee
on educational Institutions and all bills,
such as the bill to consolidate the Institu
tions under one board, wilt be submitted to
that committee. With the reading of, the
message and the Inangural and other for
malities of organization, the end of the
week will be reachedf berore any real work

Mrs Layman Dismissed.
Mrs. Henry LayrnAR. one of the wealthy
society women of, Dea Moines., who was
arrested for cruelty to her horse in neg
lecting It and allowing It nearly starve to
death In the road, .was released by the
Justice court. The prosecution was based
on a mistake In the ownership of the
Democrats Caucus Monday. -
A smoker of the democratic members of
the legislature who had reached the city
was held last night at the Savery. It had
been Intended that It should be In the
form of a caucus, but It developed that
only eight senators and twenty-two repre
sentatives were in the city, which was fif
teen short of the total number. It was
therefore decided to set Monday at 8:30
In oommtltee room No. 1 of the house as
the date snd place for the caucus. Old
members do not take an Interest In giving
an empty honor to one of their number
by naming him for speaker. It Is possible
though that General Weaver may be nom
inated for senator.
Jailed By Mistake.
Mrs. J. B. Dillingham, wife of the man
brought from Kansas City for larceny, went
to the Jail In this city and asked to see her
husband. No. officer being handy, to stand

with her husband and forgotten for several
hours. She waa unable to make the Jailer

No new ideas will be sprung on the legis

George Van Houtrn of Taylor county. Mr.
Van Houten was a member of the Twenty
sixth general assembly., "I introduced a
bill that was a new Idea. I was cartooned
from one end of the country to' the other
nd ridiculed and held up as a horrible
example of freak legislation. What was the
bill? Oh, It was a
pure food bill. But
the country wasn't ready for it then. It I
Is very popular now. But I learned a j
lesson not to advocate new Ideas till the
country Is ripe for them."
Lobbyists on Gronnd.
The first lobbyists to reach the city came
Saturday. They are railroad lobbyists. It
has been supposed that the railroads would
not oppose the 2-cent fare Mil. but the
lobbyists soon disputed this Idea. There
will be opposition to' every railroad measure

to fix up a slate failed, was a tame affair.

THE BLIGHTING EFFECTS OF DISEASES :
Weakness Is a malady that robs a man of his spirit, am
bition and force. The nerve, self-assertion and stamina are
killed by it. The cqurage that leads manly men to smile
at fate and continue to fight Is destroyed. Thousands of
ypung men, middle-aged and old men can look back to their
boyhood days or early manhood with a sigh of remorse.
The Ignorance of early youth has sown the seeds of future

violation. When she Is outraged she will have her penalty,

Immutable laws In early life, man wastes away his neive
and bodily vigor, he is then compelled to struggle under the
disadvantages which impede his progress and defeat his.
ends. He can scarcely hope to compete wth those of his
fellows whp, possessing equal opportunities, have all thlr
faculties unimpaired and bodily energies at their best. When
a man Is in a weakened condition, which Is Inconsistent with
health, strength and vigor, and which renders him unlit for
the sctlve duties and pleasures ot life, he is nearlng the
danger point and should secure Immediate attention.
Millions of men have been wrecked through ignorance and
negloct. The trouble Is not ao much that they have di
gressed from nature's Immutable law, but that they have
permitted the trouble to insidiously progress and become
more aggravated. They allow It to progress, all the time bn
coming more chronic and deeply seated. This fact Is usually
responsible for ahput nine-tenths of the suffering. .You should
remember that most diseases are progressive In their nature.
