PALM IIJAY OlISERVED BY ALL
Christ' Triumphal Fnirr Commem
orated by All Churches.
Palm Sunday, the beginning of hoVy week,
the last Sunday In Lent, tho Sunday before
Aaster, was marked -In Omaha yesterday
by special services In all Christian
churches. The beauty 'of the weather
helped to bring the people out and the
churches were generally well filled and In
some Instances were crowded.
The - week Just opened Is the greatest
week of-the Christian year. It Is the week
during which are commemorated those
tragic events which marked the ilast agony
of Christ, Ills betrayal. His. death on the
cross. His burial. It is a week which will
be observed In Omaha churches with a
solemnity befitting its tragic character and
a sympathy which shall be a fitting pre
paration for Easter Sunday, the day of
greatest rejoicing In the Christian world.
Palm Sunday marks the 'anniversary of
Christ's entry Into Jerusalem, 1,874 years
ago. If the Christian chronology be correct.
That event marked the beginning of the
end, and upon It followed quickly the tragic
events which led to Ills crucifixion. This
trlumphul entry was In fulfillment of the
prophesy contained In Zechartah Ix. 9, "Re
joice greatly. Oh daughter of Zion; shout,
Oh daughter of Jerusalem; behold they
King cometh unto thee lowly and riding
upon an ass and upon a colt, the foal of an
si." The palm Is the symbol of triumph.
At the Prottstant churches the day was
marked by sieclal music and In many of
tl:i:i the confirmation of young people,
baptisms and receptions of new members
into the church. The altars were decked
wi'li flowers und palms, the latter being
eeryw!iere In evidence as specially sym
bolic of the day.
The eetvlces at the Catholic churches
were very elaborate. At 8t. John's church
there were tour masses, with a hifc'h mass
ut 11 o'clock. At the latter service the
history of the Paysloii, according to St.
jMuttht-w. was chanted In Latin by three
rriests, assisted by the male mfmbers of
the choir und a chorus of boys. The same
w..s read to the people In English at the
eirller musses of the day.
The blessing of the palms preceded the
Uh mass, and In all the Catholic churches
tilru)S of palm were given to the members
alter the service.
The week Just begun will be marked by

Haas of Bayu and Klrls Confirmed at
Holy week services began Sunday morn
ing at Kountxo Memorial Lutheran church
with Interesting confirmation services. In
which the holy vows were taken 'by a
class of twenty-six boys and girls. The
girls were dressed In white and comprised
about half the class. The altar was taste
fully arranged with palms and flowers,
commemorative of Palm Sunday. The con
firmation services were preceded by a
musical program ,by'tho choir. The sub
ject of Rev. J. E. Kummon's address was
"The Confirmation Vow."
"It Is not my purpose to undertake at
this time a theological discussion upon the
purpose and nature of the confirmation
vow. It Is merely a rate or ordlance of
the church and Is not especially com
manded by the Lorn" Jemis Christ," Bald
he. "The early church used It u a rite
to bring men and women Into the church.
Its Bignldcanc means that these young
men and women make a public confession
of their faith and their enlistment for ser
vice under the banner of the Christian
religion und the cross of Jesus Ci;rlst and
shall forever be their hope and Joy. There
are different conceptions as to what the
confirmation certificate Is for. Some are
prone to look upon It as a free passport
Into heaven. Others look upon It. with
Indifference and simply seek the rite of
confirmation with Borne chum or friend
with whom they desire to enter the
churclf. Bettet for them that they would
never take this vow of enlistment under
God If they accept It only for a service
of six months, a year or for Just one cam
paign. Us true meaning la to enter the
service of the Lord Jesus Christ for life."
Then followed the administering of the
confirmation vow to the clasB und the lay
ing on of hands.

' Mr. Homan died early Thursday morning

unexpected except to those watching at the
bedside. All the members cf the Immedi

"If I can't shoot the fish or the tree
I'll, Just shoot you." After delivering him
self of that remark John Krenier, aged
If), leveled his S-aliber rifle at Calvin
Emmett, aged 14. yesterday afternoon and
fired. The bullet struck Emmett in the
right shoulder. Inflicting a painful, though
not serious wound. The boys were out to
Cut-Off lake shooting with other boys,
and Krenzer saw a dead fish In the water
and said he was going to take a shot at
it, to which ' Emmett protested, as he
also later protested against Krenzer wait

then that Calvin made the above remark
and fired. He was badjy scared after he
found he had shot Emmett, and said he
didn't think the rifle was cocked. There
had been no trouble between the boys and
all the circumstances point that the

Emmett lives with his parents at 2638

The1 first of the regular services In the
new home of the Young Men's Christian
association at Seventeenth and Harney
streets were held yesterday afternoon and
the new assembly room was dedicated with
an address by Dr. A. A. Wllllts of Phila
delphia and Dayton, O., who Is better
known throughout the entire country as
the "Apostle of Sunshine."
The main entrance to the new building
was used for the first time, as well aa the
spacious and artistically decorated as
sembly room, and the dedication exercises
were attended by an overflow assemblage.
After a tenor solo by Lucius Pryor, so
loist at the First Congregational church.
Dr. Wllllts delivered what was regarded
aa the mast eloquent and forceful address
cf its character ever heard In Omaha, and
his auditors were enthusiastic In their
praise of the "Apostle of Sunshine,"
"I am delighted to have the privilege of
consecrating this hall," said Dr. Wllllts.
"In It I see such a grand opportunity for
advancing the klndom of God by the con
set ration of young and noble men.
"I am trying to preach the goapel of Joy
and that Christianity Is a blessing here
and not in the hereafter, as some misguided
persons would have us believe. A man be
comes sick sometimes but refuses to have
a minister until nigh unto death, thinking,
wrongfully, that he does not need Christian
aid until he approaches the great Iron gates.
That man Is trying to use Christianity as a
Program for B very day Life.
"What we should do In our everyday life
Is, first, to make our peace with God and,
second, to count our blessings. Lots of
Christians are too gloomy. They make
Christianity look so much like a dose of
castor oil that no one wants to take It. Men
are studying and hunting for Joy, and God
provides It for us. My Bible teaches me
that troubles are sent as discipline, neces
sary and wholesome; so count your bles
sings and dont' put on a sour face through
life, for God doesn't put a bitter drop In
our cup that Isn't, wholesome and neces
sary. "I like that good, Christian Methodist
woman that said, 'Brothers and slaters, I've

you would be happy help to make others
happy, for selfishness Is blind and la the
great stupidity of humanity. The selfish
man says: 'The greatest good to the great
est number provided that number Is Num
ber One.' Hut he's fooled, for the two great
words In Christ's kingdom are, 'giving and
serving." The two words of the devil's
kingdom are, 'getting and keeping getting
all you can and canning all you get.
"Let us go forth today Imbued with the
Idea of helping others; nf bringing sunshine
Into the hearts and souls of those that are
In need or despair."
The Interesting services closed with

Tax Shirkers. Tax SharU a.
OMAHA. March 23. To the Editor of The
Bee: I have been requested to write a few
lines pertaining to H. R. 271, the same be
ing an amendment to the present so-called
scavenger law. A great deal has been said
about the tax sharks as regards this bill,
but up to the present time I have not heard
or seen in print anything about the tax
shirkers. Some of the friends of this bill
clussed all people who were fortunate or
unfortunate enough to buy any property un
der this law as of one kind, "tax sharks."
It has occurred In a great many Instances
that people who bought under this law were
not regular tax buyers, and as to the reg
ular tax buyer, permit me to ask the ques
tion: If we did not have tax buyers of what
use Is a tax sale law? And again, you can
not expect these people to give their tuna
and money to the business of making tax
shirkers pay up and then abuse them at
every turn on account of their business.
This bill, 11. R. J71, If adopted, will stop all
competition at the Bale and spoil the effects
of the law. It will also prevent the city
and county from getting the full amount of
the taxes, which they have done in hun
dreds of cases.
The scavenger law haa collected thousands
of dollars for the city of Omaha and county
of Douglas that ww uld not be paid at this
time If we did not havs this law and a few
so-called tax sharks, I do not think that
we ought to say to the man who hod not
paid his taxes foe years, '!W will make
special provisions for you and1 give you a
premium for not paying your taxes all these
years." If yu do this, why not say. to
the prompt taxpayer, "You are foolish."
Personally I hope to see IL R. 271 defeated
In the Interest of the city of Omaha and
county of Douglas, as I am satisfied It will
destroy the effect at all future sales, and I
believe I am in a position to know, having
gone through this scavenger law sale In
this county from the beginning up to the
present Urn. J. W. BA-RNETT.
Question for Mayor.
OMAHA, March H.-To ths Editor of The
Bee: Our mayor's plea. In a late number
of your pp r, for Improving our city Is
certainly a move In the right direction, but
how can the owners of homes make their
premises "a thing of beauty and a Joy
forever" aa long as the grocers' boys and
milkmen run up over our terraces and
over our lawns In spite of frequent re
quests to the contrary?

BUSY HOUR FOR THE COUNCIL
Several Important Matters Are Slated

Several Important matters will come be
fore the city council In committee of the
whole this afternoon. One matter slated
for today Is an amendment to the recent
sign ordinance. It Is proposed to allow
signs as well as merchandise on walks
within three feet from lot line. Council
man Zlmmah will fight for four feet. In
stead of three. Enforcement of this or
dinance was suspended for a week that
the council might make some modification.
Councilman Bridges' ordinance provid
ing for the sale of six street car tickets
for 25 cents will be discussed. Mayor Dahl
man will present his scheme to convert
the old market house on Capitol avenue
Into a public bath house, rather than sell
the building for scrap. An ordinance to
regulate the sale of liquor In drug stores
will also be brought up and talked over.
This ordinance prohibits the display of
liquors by druggists or serving Intoxicating
drinks in drug stores. '
MORE SENSATIONS EXPECTED
San Francisco Still Has Its Rye on
Grand Jury Which la Probing
SAfJ FRANCISCO, Cal., March 24. The
coming week promises to be as productive
as the past one In sensations relating to
the Investigation of municipal corruption
that Is being prosec"uted by the grand Jury.
It Is expected that the decision will be ren
dered tomorrow by the United States su
preme court on the petition of Abraham
Ruef for a writ of error. If Ruef's peti
tion is refused the' prosecution will pro
ceed In Superior Judge Dunne's court
Tuesday to ImpaneS a jury to try Ruef on
the charge of extoVtion In what Is known
as the French restaurant cases. If It Is
granted the trial of. Ruef will be postponed
for a while. , ' 1 '
Tomorrow afternoon the grand Jury will
resume its probing Into the alleged brib
ing of the Board 'of Supervisors by the
telephone and other public service corpora
tions. It Is announced that the prosecution has
retained an attorney io proceed to Hono
lulu and Intercept Theodore V. Halsey, who
has been Indicted on eleven counts on the
charge of bribery, for the purpose of en-
deavorlng to persuade Halsey to appear be
fore the grand Jury ' on his arrival here. !
Halsey la now enroute from Manila In
charge of a detective.
The prosecution Is momentarily expect
ing to hear of the arrest of I-ouls Glass,
former manager of the Pacific States Tele
phone Telegraph company, and Abraham
K. Detwller of Toledo, O., against whom
indictments for bribery were returned yes
In addition to the revelations coming
from the grand Jury room, public Interest
Is directed toward the regeneration of the
city In view of the alleged confessions of
corruption by the members of the Board
of Supervisors. One story Is to the effect
that the supervisors before appearing be
fore the grand Jury, secured pledges from
the prosecuting officials that they would
neither be prosecuted nor removed from
office In return for their evidence. An
Intimation that those back of the prosecu
tion were planning to assume control of
municipal affairs by virtue of their power
over the supervisors if strongly denied at
the district attorney's office. Assistant
District Attorney Heney said:
All that we Intend to do Is to see that
the supervisors behave themselves prop
erly In their official positions.
'We do not Intend to try to legislate
through them for any purpose. We shall
simply force them to be good and to dis
charge the functions of their office to the'
best Interests of the people. Personally, I
believe It Is right to give men a chance
to rehabilitate themselves If possible, and
I think that If the supervisors wish to be
come better men, as they have expressed
a desire to be, they should have a chance."
As to the' prosecution controlling the
municipal commissions and other depart
ments of the government through ths
finance committee of the Board of Super
visors, Heney declared that there will ba
no attempt to do this. Those who favor
a reorganisation of the municipal govern
ment recognise that It would be a lengthy
process to bring It about through the
courts, but are hopeful that public opinion
will force wholesale resignations, thus
solving an embarrassing question.
