Bey. McLaughlin Says Disaster
Could Have Been Averted.
SHf Smy It Was lHllo af ;!'
Wrath and Other Vmr the
Blame the Fallibility
al Maa.
A blind dlre fur gain on the part of
Managing Director lsmay of the White
Star steam-hip line wa the causa of
over lew deaths, it the charge made
h.- tv M O. McLauahlln In a sermon
delivered Sunday at Harford Memorial
chtinh. Criticisms sounded from nearly
every other pulpit In tha city yesterday.
A few ivators said the wreck of the Ti
tanic was a Judgment of God. but other
took op the Issue and laid It to man's
fallibility. Rev. Mr. McLaughlin eald:
"For all practical punores time Is now
no longer, and th seas will soon be no
more! Through modern Inventions the
world has come to be a great whliperlnt
gallery and distance haa almost disap
peared. a While rial Raise.
"Thousands have gone down in tlma of
war? with colors flying and bands play,
lni;. rather than to raise tha while flag,
but here In ..tha twentieth century. In
time of peace, the greatest exhibition of
ship building skill sinks wtlh hundred
f great and noble cltlsens on board.
While tha world admire ttie death cour
age of these brave men who gave their
lives for the women and children, the
world also mourns deeply for these cour
ageous men and feels that the awful
dlastrr could have been avoided.
It is an easy mttter to criticise, and
Khlle 1 am the last person usually to
venture ciilk'lnn. I believe In this case
that a proud, blind desire on the part of
Managing Director Isinajr and other offl
- icvi of the White Star Una led to the
sacrifice vf these hundreds of souls. I
; io not believe, as some ieople are wont
' to assume at such times, that this was
a lesson or a Judgment sent from OoO.
tlod does not destroy.
"Clod's purpose towsrd mankind Is to
save and conserve. Feople tn places of
responsibility bring calamities upon them
selves and others, through their own
carelessness. God baa given men the
compass, and barometer, and a knowledge
of the seas and the seasons, and men
themselves are lo blame for colliding with
Icebergs In lha spring of the year 111
Uwae Oat af Tkls Disaster.
"Two kinds of erroneous remarks have
been heard made by lha selfish few In
comment of this disaster. I hsve heard
tome say that the death of so many tlch
men was good riddance, but the base.
Ignorant fellows who make such remirka
place themselves below the beauts of the
field and the reptiles of the dust. Boms
others nuve said It was a mistake for
men like Aator and Brandels and Guggen
heim and others lo give place to women
and children of steerage passage. This
error la Just as serious. Men of great
sffalrs like these men are Just as chiv
alrous as any others under the sun, aid
to deny them the privilege of showing
their courage and valor and the true
manhood Inherent In their breasts would
b,- to do them a great wrong.
"But referring again to the causa of this
disaster. Captain Smith said when th
Titanic set sail, 'th ship was unstnka.
ble.' This was th first great mistake
vf Mm and hi company. The beat vrwl
t man can make I but a tor In th hands
of nature s elements. The strongest steel
skyscraper man ran construct Is but
paper before the winds of th 'Prlnao
of the power of th air. The heaviest
steel rails are but willow wisp In th
bands of nature's floods. Therefor no
man-made security should encourage
those In charge of any ship or train to
-oml; any possible precaution for th
). safety of those who entrust their lire
. to their car.
"Manager la may and Vhe President
Franklin wera assuming that this vessel
was unslnkahle and were urging the
captain to make the hlghret possible
' speed, though they knew that they were
la th rigors of Icebergs. These great Ice
bergs formed as glacier on frosen hill
. side of the north, slide Into the seas, and
many of them art so large that they art
only dissolved by th equatorial asters.
At this time of th year th northern
seas are full ot them. V esse la thst pre
ceded the Titanic by a few hour picked
their way carefully through this lan of
Icebergs, and even wired th Titanic to
beware. Hut th Titanic, assuming that
It a ss unalnkable, was plowing carelessly
through these Icebergs at twenty-two
- knot an hour, with S of it crew asleep
la the kold of the vessel.
. "But what lessons can th world learn
from this awful dlaaterT
"First We can learn that man at his
best la but finite and all his achievement
. art finite. Cod has left th bar threads
of unseen powers projecting everywhere
. that man may discover them and use
them. In recent year thee threads
have been unravtled .and message are
whispering round the world. The aea
skirted, the continents are belted, th air
and th water Is harnessed, and even th
mind la read.
"Let no ship be launched and no
throttle bt opened without Him who
know th hearts of man as well as the
Y path of the sea and land.
Wealth I "at th .
"Die fsct that some ot thee men were
" millionaire does not Increase or decrease
.. th horror of this disaster an lota. Tbe
. great tosa Is their lives and not their
means. It Is their untimely death
. that we deplore. Bom of then were aa
brave and good men aa can be found
.anywhere. Their last message and last
mi-XM a how them to be truly great and
good men.
"In the second plac the world must
learn that people's Uvea cannot
entrusted wholly to the keeping of private
corporations. These private corporations
will not. provide the necessary safety
appliance and equipment unless the
public demanded It This disaster will re-
. suit tn the changing of the lanes of
travel to lower latitude, and will also
lead to government Inspection ot th llfe-
, boat and preservers ot every ship that
leave every port. The world will Dot
agate see a similar horrid accident.
"Finally, this disaster should cause the
. world to pea in Its and rush, and
realise that this Hfe Is but a shadow at
beat; that death by disease or accident
nay befall a at any moment. "

moderately priced,; and we call especial attention to it during
this great exposition. Be sure to see the upholstered furniture
on our second floor.
It was only a year ago that a
customer returned to our store
and requested that we duplicate
an order for chairs which he had
given before. He insisted that
he wanted the same make he had
bought two years before. These
chairs were made by K. II. Conants
Sons, and this customer pro
nounced them the best he had ever
bought. Many others have paid
Conants the same compliment.
We consider them among the
best chairs that are made any
where. The patterns are beautiful, the workmanship unequal
led anywhere, and the quality by far the liest. The chairs are
made in all varieties and in all finishes. They are so beautiful
and so well constructed that they add extreme beauty to a
room and they last for years. They are finely finished in
every detail, and we are anxious to show them to yon, for you
immediately will recognize their great worth. We cousider
them among the best In the world as a combination of beauty, quality and

Original Gustave Sticldey's Craftsman Furniture
Gu stave Stickley
makes the best Crafts
man in the world it
has no equal anywhere.
This furniture has continued to
s-ow in the esteem and favor of our
patrons from year to year since it
was first introduced in (miaha by
us in 1901.
Since bringing out this style of
furniture Mr. Stickley has found
that he planned so well from the be
ginning that very little improve-
meut could be made in the models
themselves so he naturally directed
his energy to improving the work
manship and finish,' which he has
brought to its present degree of perfection.
The kind you. have
heard about is Gus
tave Stickley's, and this
is the only store in
Omaha at which it can
Craftsman furniture is made for
every room in the house; it is simple
looks honest, and many folks de
clare it extremely beautiful.
It has a rugged, Bturdy, refined
apearaice, and looks as honest, as
solid and as durable as a sturdy
rugged woodsman.
