STIRRING APPEALS MADE TO HELP CAUSE
In Addition te This Pastors In Prac
tically All Protestant Churches
Preach Sermons Along
Sunday was Young Men's Christian asso
ciation day In Council Bluffs. Supplement
ing the mass meeting In the afternoon at
the New. theater, where a large audience
was entertained with an exceptionally fine
musical program and eloquent addresses
on behalf of the asictatlon building project,
the pastors of the several churches took
the Young Men's Christian association as
tho topic for their mornng sermons.
The gathering at the New theater was a
thoroughly representative one and filled
the lower portion and the balcony of the
house as well as the boxes. On the stage.
In the center of which was an Immense
cluster of Easter lilies, were grouped the
speakers, -severs! ministers, the officers of
the Young Men's Christian association and
a number of leading business and profes
sional men. F. J. Day, president of the
association acted as chairman.
The meeting opened with the singing by
the audience of "All Hall Young Men's
Christian Association," an original adapta
tion by Rev. O. tV. Crofts, former pastor
of the First Congregational church of this
city, to the tone of "America."
The musical numbers were of exceptional
excellence, those assisting In the pleasing
feature of the program being Miss Ulllan
Price, Mrs. W. W. Sherman, Mrs. RoBert
Mullls, Miss Grace Barr, Mrs. L. It.
Hypes, Will Rigdon, Charles Haverstock,
Mr. Oerke, Dr., Claude Lewis, Lynn Brown
and Kenneth Sherman. Rarely has a meet
ing such as yesterday's been Interspersed
with musical numbers by the foremost
singers of the city and the appreciation of
the large audience was evidenced by the
Debt Owed to Yonnar Men.
The first speaker was Hon. Emmet Tinley,
who took as his subject "What This Com
munity Owes to the Young Man." He
classified his . topic Into three thoughts.
First, a Young Men's Christian association
was a debt which the adult members; of
the community owed to the rising genera
tion; second, It was a loan which would
be repaid back, and third. It was an In
vestment which would produce good re
turns. It was an obligation, he said, which
the eldeis owed to the young, for while
the public schools would train the youth
along educational lines, the Young Men's
Christian association would give the young
man that moral education which he needed.
"I appeal to the people of Council Bluffs
that the $40,000 needed be subscribed so that
a proper environment may be thrown about
their chtldre and their children's children,"
urged Congressman W. I. Smith In closing
his address, his subject being "Environ
ment." Mr. Smith said the greatest prob
lem of the human race was how to convert
the raw product of boys and glrla Into the
polished man and woman of the world.
There was in the present day, he contended,
but little of tho old-time rigor In the home
and the school, which was to be In some re
spects regretted. "What right has the
mother who does not make the home pleas
ant, or what right hits the man who does
not help establish a place where his and
other boys can find suitable and legitimate
enjoyment to go moaning around and cry
ing, 'Where Is my wandering boy tonight?' "
He declared that young men would far
more likely graduate from' the Young Men's
Christian association to the church than
they would from the saloon to the church.
In closing he made an urgent and eloquent
appeal that the citizens contribute the
money needed to build a Young Mtn's Chris
tian association building.
Halley Makes Strong; Plea.
J. P. Bulley, secretary of the-Young
Men's Christian association In Nebraska,
proved himself a veritable whirlwind. He
appeared to be at his best and kept the
large audience entertained for nearly half
an hour. He explained the benefits a com
munity derives from an institution such as
the Young Men's Christian association, and
sold that no sacrifice should be too great to
establish one In Council Bluffs.
. Mr. Bailey's theme was "Reasons Why I
Believe In the Young Men's Christian As
sociation Work." In brief, these were the
reasons given by him:
1. Because Its name Indicates its pur
pose, the practical demonstration of ap
plied Christianity. Its highest aim Is well
rounded Christian manh od.
2. Because of th power which young
men have to let. In the first In
stance, financial power. It is estimated
that the average young mun Is worth t
per year to the productive forces of tho
community. The next Instance, physical
power Whtre shall the strength be spent T
In building up or in dissipation? The power
of Influence Ia also a vital force. In con
sidering the influence of an old man you
are dealing In addition, but with the young
man you are dealing In multiplication.
S. Because It Is upon young men and
boys that the forces which tend to weakxn
and blast thetr character are prlimirily
centered. Are these forces weury In their
efforts? Are they admitting that they are
beaten by us? Are they careful to pick
certain young men? Are they . weak In
their power and have they lost their In
fluence? 4. Because of the record the Young Men's
Christian association has made. For sixty
three years it has been carrying on its
work, and now stands stronger than ever.
Why? Because It, has made good from
every standpoint br proving a friend to
young men t.y instilling In them high Ideal
In tlielr personal character, by directing
their energies toward useful channels, bv
preserving their vHallltes and discovering
the talents In their makeup and pushing
Mr. Bailey's appeal to t.he audience re
sulted In 11,573 being subscribed at the
meeting. Announcement was made that
H. L. Shugart had signed for 11,000, with
the promise of .00 more If O,0O0 was raised.
The Women's Christian Temperance union
and the Elks' quartet each donated $26, as
did Mrs. Strock's Sunday school class of
the First Congregational church. The class
consists of six boys.- The building fund
has now reached 124.316.
The committee having the mass meeting
In charge desires to express Its deep ap
preciation of the services rendered by those
taking part In the splendid trunkal pro
gram and of all who assisted to make the
meeting the success It was.
First Presbyterian Charrh.
Rev. Marcus P. McCluro of the First
Presbyterian church took "The Value of a
Man" for the topic of lit a.isx-latlon
sermon, and his text, II Kings v, T, "Je.
hovan. I pray thee, open his eyes, that he
may see." saying In rart:
This prayer of Kllsha was born of a lung
ing that his companion, a yonug nun,
might be led to seo the Infinite isoune
back of him and at his cuinmund. Tn
Young Men's Christian association Is one
of the voice offering this prayer for the
young men of our generation.

Is yet the appeal our city should make to
our young men through this young men s
organization. The development of men
strong physically, S'icIhIIv. Intellectually
and spiritually will add Infinitely to their
power as they enter more and more fuih
into life's opportunities and will enrich
eed of the Y. M. C. A.
Rev. II W. Btarr, rector of St. Paul's
Episcopal church, said In part:
In my Judgment a branch of the Young
Men's Christian association should be at
once established In Council Bluffs, for the
It Is the nature, of the young to seek
amusement and recreation. It Is an In
herent law of life thnt the potentlsl activ
ity of boys and young men shall find out
If sutable opportunity Is given, this
expression will be had in normal and Inno
cent form. In the lack of such opportunity,
this pent up activity of the young will In
evitably find expression In harmful or sin
ful form, or In an unhelpful and Immoral
Adequate opportunity of this kind Is not
now provided for the youth of Counrll
Bluffs, but opportunities for the wrong
kind of recreation and amusement are
abundantly in evidence.
Kach church might do this work for the
benefit of Its own members. If each church
hud the necessary means and the necessary
assistance at command. But such Is rot
the case, and, almost without exception,
the churches of Council Bluffs are doing
this work Inadequately or else leaving it
undone altogether. This Is not so much
due to the indifference of the chim-hes. or
their ministers as It is to their Inability to
secure the necessary means.
The Young Men's Christian association
is an organisation which has been proved
by practical experience to he well adapted
for such service. The defects In Its sys
tem which have sometimes aroused criti
cism are not essential or Irrenedlable, but
tire largely local In nature and can be
overcome. It becomes the duty of both
clergy and laity. In the spirit of an un
selfish public service, to devote time,
thought, labor and means to perfecting the
details of the local management so that
the organization may best accomplish Its
Dnya Xecd night Environment.
Rev. Ottcrheln O. Smith of the First Con
gregational church said:
We think often that because boys do not
wnnt to come Into the drawing room they
do not want company, but they do, and
because It Is not supplied them they get
together, for there Is a fellow sympathy
among these rapidly growing boys. This is
what is called the "gang period" among
hoys. Of what Immeasurable benefit to
such boys Is a Young Men's Christian asso
ciation, where they can carry out the gang
instinct under proper conditions and en
vironments. At about 18 the physical form rounds
out and begins to show plumpness and the
mind and heart become more normal and
more steady and the boy begins to return
to society and passes to young manhood.
Now he stands before us a splendid spool
men of manly strength. His whole being
Is afire with an overmastering energy and
It must have an outlet somewhere. What
are the dominant qualities of the average
young Vnan? They are strength, hope, en
thusiasm, energy and audacity. These are
all commendable virtues, but without Judg
ment, which Is absent from the lives of
most young men, these commendable vir
tues may lead the young man into all
sorts of trouble. With his boundless
strength and enthusiasm the young man
Is sure to follow persistently what he Is
attracted to till he has overcome It or
mastered It. How Important It Is that he
has right Ideals and that his life is sur
rounded with such environment as will
start It right. Nothing cat) be of greater
value to him than the Young Men's Chris
Purpose of Y. M. C. A.
Rev. J. . McKenzle, pastor of the First
The Young Men's Christian association
has a three-fold purpose. The develop,
ment of body, mind and spirit. It- stands
for cleanliness of body and purity of life.
It Is my honest Judgment that no one can
be truly happy who is not living in com
plete Iiarmony with the highest laws of
God. Sin may abound for a time but re
morse Is certain to follow. It Is a delight
ful privilege to lend all our efforts to help
save the boys and young men of our city,
to turn them from sin unto God and from
darkness unto the marvelous light of the
gospel of Jesus Christ our Lord. Some
years ago the late Horace Mann, the
eminent editor, delivered an address at the
opening of some reformatory Instituted for
boys, during which he remarked that If
only one boy was saved from ruin It
would pay for all the cost and care and
labor of establishing such an Institution
as that. It Is worth the toil of a lifetime
and the lavished wealth of a world to save
"my boy" from temporal ard eternal ruin.
'He would go the world around to save
him from peril, and would bless every
friendly hand stretched out to give him
help and welcome. And yet every lost man
Is one whom some fond mother has called
"my boy." Shall we shrink trom labor,
shall we hesitate nt cost, when the work
before us Is the salvation of a soul? Not
if It Is "my boy," not If we have the
love of Him who gave His life to save the
Rev. James O'May, pastor of the Broad
way Methodist church:
The waywardness of any young man la
a pitiful spectacle, and that Is the rationale
of the Young Men's Christian association.
The loss of a young man to the moral wel.
fare of the community Is a dead loss that
tannot be compensated. If each succeed
In generation Is not better than the one
pieceding it, then the problem of biology
is a failure when looked at as a whole.
If my children are not greater factors for
this world's welfare than I have been then
my contribution to the world's progression
has failed. There are enough young men
going to the bud every year In our city
to make economic wealth enough to run
and equip a Young Men's Christian asso
ciation, if not to build one as well. I have
known enough of young men to have fallen
away from the paths of righteousness In
the few years I have labored in your m!dnt
to compensate for all the expense that Is
entailed with this project so far.
The Young Men's Christian association
Is especially fitted to do this work, for It
Is Interdenominational and approaches the
men from an angle such as the church
cannot approach them were It to have the
means and workers. Personally I have an
experience of over seven years In which
the only religious approaches that were
mado to me were, with one exception, by
such workers as these. Council Bluffs Is
the wrong city to set up the cry that there
sre churches enough to do tho work. With
the thousands of persons in our city who
never darken the church doors and with
the other thousands who are Indifferent
In that relationship, it is the wrong situa
tion to say that the churches can tend
to this thing. The churches are not doing
It, and in the opinion of many Judges ore
not fixed to do It. "The churches have had
a long time to try It and have not wrought
out the problem. Then, It will be a good
exierinient to tern the work over to these
specialists In the, business of handling
young men and see if they can save the

that not even porters were to be allowed In
saloons during Sundays for the purpose of
cleaning up. The notice took many of the
saloonmen by surprise ana many of them
expressed themselves as thoroughly dis
satisfied with the order, as saloons being
closed on Sunday, the day was taken ad
vantage of to give them a good cleaning
after the week's business.
It Is said that the order resulted from

JURY ACQUITS SANDERSON
Defense of the ' In writ ten Law Lets
Slayer of Doctor Go
CARTHAGE, Mo., March 24. The Jury
In the case of Arthur Sanderson, charged
with the murder of Dr. Solomon D. Mere
dith in Carthage on 'January 2, last, brought
In a verdict this evening of not guilty, after
being out twenty-live hours.
Mrs. Sanderson, in defense of her hus
band, testified that Dr. Meredith, who had
buun. their family, physician, had made love
to her when she went to his office, to con
sult him. Later, when one of the Sanderson
children was 111 and Sanderson wanted to
send for Meredith, Mrs. Sanderson had de
murred and said that some other physician
should be called In. Sanderson insisted
upon knowing why she objected to Mere
dith, and Mrs. Sanderson related her ex
periences with him. Sanderson immediately
left the house and soon returned with Dr.
Meredith. 'Before Mrs. Sanderson he ac
cused the physician of ruining his home
and shot and killed him.
In the arguments of counsel for the de
fense a parallel with the Thaw case was
drawn and the unwritten law was brought
out. Attorney Shannon said there was evi
dence of an exaggerated ego In that the
defendant thought himself providentially
called upon to avenge the Insult to his wife.
He declared that Dr. Meredith deserved 'the
fate he met.
In a dying statement Dr. Meredith denied
that'hls relations with Mrs. Sanderson had
been criminal. He was prominent In

DE8 MOINES, March 24 -(Ppeclnl.)-Three
successive sessions' of the legislature
while a member of the house Senator
Frudden of Dubuque got through ft bill to
keep the Dubuque Fire and Marine Insur
ance company from moving out of the
state. At every session tho bill was killed
in me senate, so this year Frudden came
to the legislature as a senator and got the
bill through that body. It went to tho
house and passed and all looked well till
tho next day, when the Journal showed
that there had been a motion filed to re
consider the vote, and a fight Is yet to be
made to have the bill killed.
The Dubuque Fire and Marine Is one
of the biggest fire Insurance companies In
the state. It became big by absorbing the
German nf Frecport. III. When . It took
over the German It took on n great bulk
of Insurance that Is outside the state of
Iowa, but the Insurance laws of Iowa pro
vide that Insurance companies shall bo
taxed on all their business. The Dubuque
Fire and Mnrine thinks this Is an Injustice
and It wants a bill through providing thnt
It shall be taxed onlyon Its Iowa business.
If the bill Is finally killed In the house the
Dubuque company will In all probability
move to Freeport, III., the home of the old
German of Freeport. There Is, however,
yet nn opportunity for the house to refuse
to reconsider the vote. If It does It will
go to tho governor for his signature.
Slftlna; Committee Soon.
Sifting committees will be created some
time early this week. The senate has a
resolution before It providing for such a
committee and will act on It within a day
or two. The creation of a sifting commit
tee Is a sign that the end Is near. Debate
now on the day of final adjournment has
narrowed down to within a few days. The
adjournment will not be earlier than Fri
day, April 5, nor later thnn Saturday,
April 13. The latter date, however. Is an
extreme date and very few are expecting
that the legislature will hold on that long.
It Is much more likely that adjournment
will be April 6 or else early the next week,
April 8 to 10.
Wane Exemption Rill Dead.
The wage exemption bill Is dead again.
It has failed to get .out of committee In
either house and the predictions on the
part of the union labor men Is thnt It will
not be out in either house on any kind of
a report. Every year the attempts by the
Iowa Grocers' association are renewed to
get the wage exemption cut down. Every
session the union labor men fight It, and
so far have been successful. This year
Weeks, chairman of the Judiciary commit
tee of the house, was the author of a wage
exemption bill which went to his com
mittee and It looked for a time as though
something might be reported out. Now
It is admitted that the proposition Is dead
for another session.
For Permanent Highways.
Senator McManus has taken up the work
of getting through a bill to permit the
building of permanent highways In the
state. Under bis bill on petition of prop
erty owners a district will be set apart
through which a permanent roadway Is to
be built by contract, the board of super
visors to have charge of all details and
payment is to be made from the county
and township road funds and one-third by
the property adjacent and within a three
mile limit. It is. the plan to build good
macadamized roads by contract, and to
enable counties to enter upon this work
systematically, as in some other states.
State Support of Schools.
Every effort will be made at this session
to pas a bill Introduced In the house by
Miller of Bremer, providing for a state levy
of one-half mill for the benefit of the pub
lic schools of the state. The proposition Is
to divide the mcney among the public
schools on the ratio of the attendance, of
pupils, but the bill provides that no school
shall have any of the funds unless it has
an average attendance of at least six and
unless Its school year is at least eight
months. It Is believed that the operation
of the bill would result In many of the
small country schools consolidating and
thus saving great expense and resulting In
better schools. The Idea is also entertained
by the friends of the measure that wh.n
the state educational Institutions have no
further need of the special mlllage taxes
for their building purposes that mlllage tax
should be continued and also given to the
public schools, thus making a total of 1
mill. The half-mill levy will rate about
Corporation Tax Bill Dead.
The senate committee on Judiciary killed
off a bill that was expected and Intended to
add t2M,0u0 to the revenue of the state. The
bill was introduced by Erlcson of Boone
and provided that corporations should be
taxed oh their capital stock annually In
such a manner that the revenue of the state
would be increased by (250,000 a year. The
bill provided for annual reports to the sec
retary of state, with the payment of the
tax at the time of the report. The Judiciary
committee cut cut the tax, but left the re
port. Municipal Legislation Monday.
Municipal legislation will have Its Innings
In the house Monday and Tuesday. The
bills fathered by the League of Iowa Mu

ate, are 01: the calendar for special order
