LINCOLN, Sept, aX-(Speclal.)-BIshop
F. M. Bristol today sharply reprimanded
preachers who deal In real estate as a
side line. He was addressing tho twenty
young candidates for tho ministry before
"A preacher cannot do In the business
world what a business man can do get
the better of a bargain. Tho state con
siders it legal for the business man to
win a fortune from another man and
give him nothing in return; bankors and
men of high standing In the commercial
world consider It legitimate to play the
Board of Trade or trado horses, but the
preacher cannot do these things."
Then followed tho questions, "Are you
resolved to devote yoursolf wholly to
God and His work?" and, "Are you de
termined to employ all your time In the
employ of God?" In consenting to which
these young men bound themseivea to

The second question whlchj the bishop
dwelt on was: "Will you diligently In

not, you will be a total, failure- as a
preacher," he said. "In this age, we

Houso to houso visiting was empha
sized by tho Bishop as tho 'most impbr-

"I'eopjo are tired, of preaching today,"
he said. "Thoy want somebody to visit
with, them in their hbmbs", to know" their

to help them hold -to tho broader visions

Objects to Tobacco.
Bishop Bristol said that although
leniency was being permitted In the use
of tobacco In many circles that as lonJr
as he Is in office, he
will require all
prooaticmng preachers to promise as
gentlemen and Methodist preachers, to
wholly refrain from the uso of tobacco.
"I will not ask you young men If you
are using tobacco now or If you havo ever
used It, but If you have, go out now and
turn 'the hoso on your mouth and your

j you feel that you can appropriately kneel

commenting on the termination of htfl en
gagements announced that ha would con
tinue to lecture as long as hp remained
secretary of state, whenovcr he felt there
was proper occaslort and a desire to do so.
Mr. Bryan Issued this statement:
"This evening Is the last of the chau
tauqua" lectures for this season. Tho
total Income from Chautauqua lectures
this year Is a little over 17,000. The net
receipts after taking out the necessary
expenses are something over 30.600, The
number of whole week days which has
been used for lectures Is, according to my
recollection, seven. The remainder of tho
lectures have been delivered at places
near enough to this city to leave In the
afternoon, sometimes as late as 3:08
o'clbck. I would not assumo that tho
publlo was Interested' in these details
wero It not for the fact that representa
tives of a few newspapers'have regarded
It as a matter of great Importance."
Will, Continue to Lecture.
When Mr. Bryan waa asked It he would
lecture any more during his connection
with the State department, he replied:
"I expect to lecturo whenever I' deem It
desirable or necessary to do so, and have
not In the least altered the plans which
were made at the time I assumed the
duties of the office. The criticism that
has been directed against my lecturing
Is no more bitter than the criticism 1
havo undergone at otlier times and for
other things during my connection with
"A part of this criticism Is malicious,
a part of Jt Is partisan and a part of
It Is based upon misinformation. Thftt
which Is malicious will answer Itself,
that which Is partisan will bo accepted
as such, that which Is based on misin
formation will cease when tho critics are
Not Afraid of Criticism.
