MEN PRIME NEED OF CHURCH MD? S5UAHi

So Asserts J. E. McAfee at the Prcs .
MODERATOR STONE'S ADDRESS
Xnn Whoup Klectlnn nt Atlanta Wnn
a Rebuke to nccleslnstlcnl I'ol
. Klcs Staler the Key
Joieph Ernest McAfee of Jvew York,
nrcrotAry of the home mission boanl of
the Presbyterian church, told the synod
of Nebraska at North church that there
tren today 2,000 of the 10,O churches of t
thta denomination In America without
paitora and that I, SCO of them stand with
closed doors on a glvrn Sunday.
"Tho prime need Is for men." ho de
clared. He said the lriilcnhln In th
home mission churches was deficient as '
leadership, though ronal qualities werb
high. He attributed this deflclcnoy larfiely I
to the transitory character of the pas- '
torate. The avcrnso homo mission pas
torate, he said, was less than two years,
lis told of a home missionary who had
been on his field seven years and was
the senior pastor there, where tho per
sonnel of pastoratcn had undergone four
changes In his period.
"tASt year." said Mr. McAfee, "we lost
by death and other causes ST Presby
terian preachers. We ordained 2K to take
their places, and so It goes. I say the
crying need Is for men to man the church
of Christ and push forward under effi
cient and large leadership this great en
terprise of home missions."
"ChUrch on Its Job," was a slogan Ml.
MoAfee said had been ndopted by the
forward homo mlrslon agencies. Unity
of 'action, both as to spirit and execution,
was the impelling force. And the need
neit to that of men, he said, was organ
isation. Mr. McAfee's address followed the re
port of Rev. Nathaniel McCilffln, chair
man of the committee of home missions
and Sabbath school work In Nebraska,
which both showed was n leader among
the states. Tho New York man highly
Commended tho report and work here.
Iter. W. II. Kearns, synodlcal superln-
Undent, and Ilev. It, H. Houseman, edu
cational superintendent, also made Im
portant reports that evoked flattering
Nebraska n Lender.
Dr. Mcdlffln's report showed Nebraska
gaining ground In .all its missionary
agencies and that It devoted more money
per child for Sunday echool work than
any other state. It recommended u
sweeping evqngelUtlc (campaign this
autumn and winter throughout the etato
Tha chief feature of thja .report was to
recommend ft continuance of the home
mlatlon pel I elm pursued In Nebraska un
der the present regime and also the con
tinuance of the field leadership of Ilev.
IV. H. Kcarn. The synod now has that
report, which, with the motter of
synodlcal college, form tho crux of In
terest In this session. Both are on tho
docket for disposition this afternoon. It
was freely predicted that tho opposition
to tho home missions policy would not be
vigorous, but that tho, college question
would entail a nharp contest. Bellevue'a
friends are extremely anxious for equal
recognition with Hastings.
Moderator Stone Talk.
Or. John Timothy Stone, moderator of
tha general assembly, addressed the
synod t night. Ho is making tho rounds
of several western synods. rp Stone Is
paMor of tha large Fourth Presbyterian
church of Chicago, a young, vlgoroun
man of magnetic force, who goes by the
title of "a man's man."
His election as moderator at Atlanta
Wet May, It Is recalled, was spontane
ous, and after the pips were set for one
of four other men. Wlthoui, Dr. Stone's
knowledge a protest agalna'. "ecclesiasti
cal politics" arose and culminated In ht
nomination, lie protested, but was elected,

ACTED BEYOND AUTHORITY

SHOULD ACT WITHIN THE LAW
I'olUe Department pbjets to Man
ner In Which Prisoners Are
Treated While Waiting- a
Chance to Appeal.
City Corporation oounsel Ben S. Baker.
In a written opinion submitted to Chief
ot Police Henry W. Dunn today, holds
that Police Judge Charles Foster acted
without legal authority when he In
structed a police sergeant to Incarcerate
Kdward Bexton. a druggist. In the "bull
pen" at the city Jail pending the prepara
tion of an appeal bond.
Chlot of Detectives 8teve Maloney asked
Chief Dunn tor assurance of "decent
treatment" for men arrested by detectives
and police and fined In police court.
Bexton was fined UOO. His brother, con
nected with a national bank here, asked
that the druggist be not confined V jail
"with burns," but allowed to go free for
an hour or so until an appeal bond could
be prepared. Judge Foster Insisted on
throwing the drvgglst Into the "bull per"
Judge Baker told Chief Dunn, "It Is not
within the power of the police judge to
designate In which part ot the Jail such
person shall be confined, The court ex
hausts Its power when it orders and
directs that such person be. confined in
JalL" Informally the Judge declared that
the appearance bond held good until
committment was Issued. The appeal
bond would have been prepared boforo
such commitment was Issued, the latter
usually being issued after court adjourns.
Chief Dunn said:
"This department does not want to get
Into any row with the police Judge, but
It Is time we had some assurance that
respectable and established citizens would
be given the privileges to which they aro
entitled by law. Bexton was convicted of
selling cocaine. Whether he sold it or
not he was ready to give bond and there
waa no Just reason why he should have
tion of the bond. There is too much pc-r-aonal
feeling shown In dealing with
police court cases."
