MEN ON SALOON PETITION
MADE DEFENDANTS IN SUIT
New Fea era Introduced la Petition
for filO.OOQ Dan ages Filed
by Widow.
AUBURN, Neb., Jan M.-(Speelal.)-
Mollie Peery, for herself, and as mother
and next friend of her minor children,
Donle, Gladys, Madge and Teddy Peery,
Bernlce Peery, Marion, Peery and Ruth
Peery. ranging In age from 1 years to
I months, today filed suit against Walter
M. Ramsey and Lee Toung, saloon keep
ers at Johnson, In this county, and the
Lion Bonding Company, the surety on each
of the bonds of said saloon keepers, for
the sum of $20,000 damages on account of
the death of James peery, tha husband
and father of plaintiffs. It Is alleged
In the petition that Jamea Peery on Sep
tember 23 obtained liquor In the saloons of
defendants Ramsey and Toung to such
amount and quantities that he drank tr'
stuplftcation and wandered from aald sa
loons to tha Chicago, Burlington ft Qulncy
railroad right-of-way and lay down In an
Insensible condition on the track of said
railroad, and was there struck by a moving
train and had one arm torn off and his
head crushed, from which he immediately
died.
A novel feature of the suit Is that the
sigmrs of the petitlgn for the licenses
Insued to Ramsey and Toung are mads
defendants, and judgment ' asked against
them, It being alleged that they were the
moving parties In obtaining the license
under which the liquor was sold which
prod used tha Intoxication which caused
and contributed to the death of Peery, and
the consequent damage to the plaintiffs.

Ban" Johnson, whoever he Is, was called
several times for a speech, and finally
told that the Insurgent movement which
had been started by the band of thirty In
Lincoln had' extended to Kansas, from
which atate he had recently returned, and
that It was sweeping over the Stubbltes
like a prairie fire. This was cause for
great applause.
Dr. Finney Wnnts New Party
Judge Cosgravs. who has the congres
sional bee In his own bonnet. Insisted that
the band of thirty should not rest content
vt'.h beating Burkett and Brown, but
should defeat all the congressmen In the
state who did not get into the bandwagon
quickly. But while Corgrave wanted all
the senators and congressmen beaten. Dr.
Ftrney demanded that the tall should go
with the hide and a new party be organlr?d
right then and there. Others were content
with merely beating Burkett and Brown
and forcing Taft to resign.
Joe Johnson, who was somewhat promt
nent In a bunch of "fake reformers" soma
mcnths ago, kinder put a kink in the chttu
tatiqua speakers and grandstandors when
he told of his visit to Washington. The
late food commissioner said he found Sena
tor Aldiioh the hardest working man In
the city. He had not time even to visit,
He represented his constituents. When
he wanted anything he demanded It In
the name of his people and he got It. The
matter with Nebraska, he said, was that It
had not sent big men to Washington. If
the state would send a' man of the ability
of the odious Aldrich, he said, the people
would get recognition. He blamed thou
present at the meeting for this condition.
Though the Insurgents have used tha
name of Congressman Norrls aa .well as
that of Mr. Whedon to work up Interest
In the movement as soon as Mr. Whedou
announced his candidacy their official
organ, D. E. Thompson's Lincoln Star,
erased the name of Judge Norrls from tha
senatorial blackboard and today asks the
democrats to endorse Mr. Norrls for con'
greas in the Fifth district and nominate
no candidate against him, in order to givs
him an unopposed re-election.

OMAHA, MONDAY, JANUARY
YI1Y ARE THE PEWS EMPTU
Rev. J. W. Conley Incisively Analyses
Various Reasons Given.
SUNDAY DIVERSIONS BIG CAUSE
Met Room F.nangih la Omaha Ch arches
for Two-Third of the Profeaalna;
Christiana Dr. MeBrlds
on Sin Atnaesneat.
Empty Pews, Causes and Remedies,"
was the subject of the discourse of Rev.
W. Conley at the First Baptist church
Sunday morning.
'I had Intended," said Dr. Conley, "to
talk upon the subject of 'Safe Investments'
this morning, but recognising the proba
bility of empty pews at the evening service,
decided to transpose 'the theme rather than
to talk on "Empty Pews' to empty pews."
His text was from Hebrews ;K. Not
forsaking the assembling of ourselves to
gether, as tha manner of some Is; but
exhorting one another; and so much the
more, as ye see the day approaching."
Dlsousslng the seriousness of the quea
tlon aa to why so many people remain
away from church, and why so many empty
pews, particularly at the evening services,
Dr. Conley said in part;
"Many causes are given. . We are told
that there art too many churches, hence
too many pews to fill. Let us see about
this in Omaha, With Its 150,000 population,
Tha seating capacity of the Protestant
churches of Omaha la about 10,000, and the
Baptist churches have, capacity for about
2,000. There are possibly 60.000 professing
Christians In the city, and should 0, 000 of
these attend the churches, possibly 20,000
would not be able to get In. There are not
too many churches.
"Then again we are told that In holding
two services In the week, Sunday and mid
week, it is asking too much In thus giving
approximately five hours to church services.
"There are not too many services. Men
are not less religious today than they were
In times of old, but religion Is more of a
personal element in this modern day than
In the external elements of the religion of
the olden times. I believe that there Is an
Increased spiritual feeling today, more than
formerly, and that the lack of church at
tendance is not indicative of a lack of
religious feeling.
"In our church services, the minds ' of
most men turn toward the pulpit. For this
reason we should have . a better pulpit
service, and one less given, as Is held, to
thJ discussion of worn-out doctrines.
Agreed, that there should be a better Inter
pretation of the mors practical energies of
life. Ths pllplt Is not a scholastlo Institu
tion. It Is a wonder to-me when a preacher
has to stand twice each Sunday and speak
to the same people that we do as well as
we do. It Is a difficult thing to firs at
Ibng range over empty pews.
"One great fault ot Protestantism Is the
magnlfyliyg of the pulpit. AVe ought to
come to church to worship; to feel the In
spiratlon of God In our songs of praise
and our prayers, protestantism has laid
great tasks upon, pMrt, .
"We are told In' some of the magaalnes
that the church Is hot what it ought to
be; that there is too- much hypocrisy In it.
I waht to say that , this Is a dishonest de
ductlon. The dishonest or hypocritical
elder or deacon Is largely a fiction of ths
brain that Is not borne out by ths facts.
Rarely in my ministry have I met such an
ens. ., ..
'There Is far more hypocrisy outside
than In the church. We are again told
that there Is a laek-of sociability, trot dnly
Sunday, bet 'during-: th week -day i An
other cause Is given "t bat church members
are Indifferent themselves. Another cause
given for empty pews Is that tha church Is
everlastingly appealing for money, and
that unless a man is a liberal giver he Is
not recognised. Yet after all ths money
belongs to God. In the lodge or olub If we
pay our dues regularly and promptly we
are all right. If not we quit. Persons can
be members In good standing In the church
If they are unable .to, pay their mltn. It
trey be true that sometimes we unduly
pledge means beyond, the ability to pay
and I do know that many pledges are mad
and paid at a great sacrifice.
"We are again told that It Is because
wc are behind the times that there are so
mai y empty pews .In our churches. The
church has been always potent In stlmu
lailrg tha. vital forces of our social and
civic life. Men whose souls are fired by
civic reform are Invariably men who are
oensecrated to the sen-ice of the living
God. The me nand essayists who contro
vert this are the ones that ars behind the
times.
"The highest work of the Christian mis
sions has been In bringing the heathen
Into the Hen and practice of human prog'
ress. . .
"Never has there been a time In the
history of the church when the pulpits ot
the land are ranging higher with all the
elements of human progress than now.
'Another cause for empty pews is tliad
men are so absorbed with business thai
they can find no place nor time for the
work of the living God. The world hits
toe great a grip upon-them. Temptation
and Immorllty hns crowded out the better
Instincts. Men know that they are wrong,
but do not want to eb troubled byjjietr
corsclences.
"A most potent factor In contributing to
enpty pews is the craving for Sunday
amusements, for Sport and recreation, the
abomination of the Sunday theaters. Yet
I venture to say that the great body ot
actors want Sunday for rest, but they are
driven like slaves to their work to amuse
and entertain for the mercenary advantage
ot their employers. Taking the Sabbath
for amusements Is not for recreation and
rest, but for the mercenary advantage ot
those who profit from It."

Conditions Are Fulfilling
Prophecy.
ST. JOSEPH, Mo.. Jan. 16--(8peclal.)-
Representatlves of St. Joseph's commercial
organisations yesterday formally welcomed
to the city seventy delegates and about
twenty visitors to ths fourth biennial ses
sion of the Central Union conference of
the Seventh Day Adventlsts, whleh began
ten-day session In ths Young Men s
Christian association music hall Thursday.
A drtegatlon of twelve, the last to Come,
headed by Elder E. E. Kite of Denver,
president of the Colorado stats conference,

Reports of work done in the seven con
ferences represented In the Central union
were submitted by the following presi
dents! E. E. Kite, Denver, eastern
Colorado; W. F. Kennedy, Grand Junction,
western Colorado; E. A. Curtis, Crawford,
Wyo.; A. T. Robinson, Hastings, Neb.;
W. H. Thurston," Topeka, Kan.; A. R.
Ogden, Utlca, north Missouri; D., U. Hale,
Springfield, south Missouri.
In an address outllnglng the doctrines of
adventlsts, President E. T. Russell ot Lin
coin, Neb., Indicated that the members of
his sect believe the end of the world la
not far distant. "That the end of the
world is oomlng in our generation, is at
tested by the unrest and agitation all
over Ihe earth during the last two years,"
he said. "The people of foreign countries
have been deposing their rulers; there has
been devastation on land and sea and
capital Is at its flet-otst. There have been
great disturbances in the financial world
and there Is only perfunctory peace be
tween ths nations. These are my reasons
for holding that we will live to see ths
second coming of Christ.

secretary of the missionary publication
department of ths general conference, and

REPUBLICANS PASS THEM UP
Many Who Attended First Insnra-eatl
Session Not Present at
Second
(From a Staff Correspondent.).
LINCOLN, Jan.-!. (Special Telegram.)
The hardest Mow yet received by the self
styled Insurgent republicans of Lincoln was
dealt to them today, when their object
was repudiated by Attorney General Thomp
son and by Jasper L. McBrlen by their re
fusal to attend a meeting tonight Both
Mr. Thompson and Mr. McBrlen flatly re
fused to go and Mr. Thompson announced
that he would go with the Insurgents no
farther, while McBrlen wrote a withdrawal
from the commute to which he had been
appointed in his absence.
George Tobey also failed to attend the
meeting tonight But the insurgents In
surged just the same. Expecting a . big
crowd, they paid $10 for the Walsh hall
and drummed the streets for their friends
and fellow sufferers and secured an at
tendance of thirty-two. But they Insurged
to the "queen's taste" and they not only
announced their purpose to get the scalp
of Senator Burkett but the head of Senator
Norrls Brown is next to follow into the
basket. Senator Brown came In for the
same kind of scoring that Burkett was
given.
So fierce was the denunciation of Presl
dent Taft by C. C. Flansburg that Colonel
Boydson, a democrat, In a stage whisper,
said to his seatmate, "John, aren't you
glad you didn't vote for him?"
Whr-dnn endorsement Pnt Off.
It was anticipated that the meeting was
to endorse the candidacy of C. O. Whedon.
whose announcement had been made during
the afternoon, but the crowd was so small
that this waa left to a more auspicious
time. Mr. Whedon was eulogised by Count
Judge CoHgrave as a second Henry Cabot
Lodge and also compared to a few ot the
postmasters in statesmanship. Judge Cos
grave waxed so wrathy at the awful condi
tions of the country that in a great burst
of eloquence he exclaimed, as the tears
marred hla cheeks, "It almost makes my
blood whirl to think ot ths conditions as
they exist now."
The judge covered the history of the
world from 600 yeara before the landing
of ths Pilgrims and never were the people
in suoh bondage as today.
It remained for George Adams, however,
to clear the Nebraska senators of the
charge of preventing the reappointment ot
Charles A. Gobs as United States district
attorney. Mr. Adams Said Mr. Goss had
been appointed first by Roosevelt and that
waa why he had been refused a second
terra by Preeldent Taft Adams Insisted
on denouncing practically all of the-jnem-
bers of the preuetit cabinet
Reformer C. C Flansburg was elected
chairman of the meeting and Reformer'
John C. Fremont McKesson was elected
Secretary, while Reformer Paul Clark waa
the master of ceremonies.

Can an Individual who has been deaf for
a number of years be made to hear again
The anawer to the above question would
seem to be sn emphatlo "NO," yet ths
Cooper "stomach man," who Is now In
Omaha Introducing the preparations which
havs made him famous throughout the
United States, says, "Under oertaln condi
tions, yes."
Reports from eastern cities stats that
Cooper gave demonstrations In which he
agreed to make deaf people hear again In
thiee minutes with ons of his preparations,
and It Is claimed he was suocessrul In
many cases.
When asked about these seeming mlraoles
yesterday the "stomach man" said:
"In cases where deafness has been pro
duced by catarrhal trouble I havs a prepa
ration that will bring relief In a few mo
ments' time, but only In cases of this char
acter. In the east I have given publlo
demonstrations with my medicine tha( wars
really astonishing, but the reports of what
I accomplished became greatly exaggerated.
and It was claimed I could restore ths
nesting of any deaf person In a fsw mo
ments' time. This Is not trus, by any
mesne, and these false reports edused
many people great disappointment. For
Instanos, ons man came all ths way from
On-aha to New York when I was there
last year, who had been stone deaf from
birth. He was almost broken-hearted when
I refused to even try to help him. Such an
experience as this makes tne very cautious,
as It Is a terrible thing to witness the de
spair of an Individual such as this man,
who had been led to believe there was
hope for him.
'1 shall give some of these demonstra
tions In Omaha and will attempt to relieve
sufferers from catarrhal deafness In three
minutes. If I am successful I will bs mors
ready to discuss it I, of course, charge
nothing- for these demonstrations.
"I shall bs at ths drug department of
the Brandela stores from 10 o'clock In ths
morning to S in the evening each day dur
ing my stay here. Saturday night tbs
hour will be extended to S o'clock. . I cams
here to convince the half-sick people of this
city that the only .thing tha matter with
them was an overworked, worn-out stom
ach. I have convinced thousands of per
sons here already, and shall. convert many
mors to my new health theories before I
leave."
Don't be afraid to give Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy to your children. It Is per
fectly safe.
