LAST MEETING TOMORROW
Nebraska Congregationalista Will

SPEAKS ON THE PILGRIMS
Iter. J. II. Andreas of Sheridan, Wyo.
Delivers Strongest Adi1re of
the Session on the Faith's
Tlie four-day conference of Nebraska
Congregational tnlnlsters held the second
meeting yesterday morning In St Mary's
Avenue Congregational church. The meet
ings will' closo Monday mornlnir. One
of tho strongest addresses so far In be
half of Congregationalism was delivered
by Rev. J. H. Andress of Sheridan, Wyo.
Rev. Mr. Andreas Is retiring moderator.
Ho was formerly pastor of a church In
Weeping Water. Neb. Rev M. A. Poulson
of Lincoln succeeds him. Tho Rev. Mr.
Poulson was elected Friday morning to
fill tho vacancy. The Rev. Mr. Andreas
spoke on "The Pilgrim's Conscience,"
which address. struck tho ministers so
favorably thatthey have ordered the
speech to be printed.
Tnlka an Plltrrlms.
The Rev. Mr. Andrcss traced the wan
derings of the Pilgrims from England
to Holland, and from there to America.
The Pilgrims, he said, were the origina
tors of the Congregational sect.
"Tho Pilgrims left England to go where
they might worship as they wished,"
Rev. Mr. Andreas said In part. "From
England they went to Holland, and from
there to America. One of the first things
they " did upon landing in America was
to educate their children In their relig
"Statistics show that Juvenile crime has
advanced at the astonishing rate of two,
and one-half times greater than' the pro
portional Increase In population. Outside
teaching and listening to others Is re
sponsible for this increase. In the old
days the father of the family taught the
children obedience, and the scripture. In
the old days the children received en
lightenment from the Bible. Too much
Is left to others these days.
Need Morn Grace.
"The present-day minister needs not less
Greek, but more grace; not less socio-
logy, but more spiritual discernment; not
less philosophy, but more faith in the
gospel; not less Hebrew and Sanserif, but
n better working knowledge of the Eng-
ltsli Bible; not less polish In the pulpit,
but" mora eloquence In tho closet- What
matters It that a minister is able to read
the Bible In five languages If he cannot
assist some one In one single language?
"Tho Pilgrim spirit Is just as strong
today as It ever was. We do not stek
to trample on the rights of others. The
Ba)pon muat De ftbo,Uhe(, we mak
this a nation whoso God Is the Lord from
Plymouth Rock to the Golden pate.' Our
iui iwiaj is o live os our vQI-
,c?no6 Rnd t0 m
others see the true light
".When our conscience .has. ceased to be
its, strong vtower and duty and Its wall
of: strength) our national structures will
fait kh'd cfumble !n-'the dust,, the-story of
the Pilgrim Will be a,, forgotten legend,
and- the restless sea, as It sobs and moans
against the New England coast, will
sound the idlrge of hope departed, -vision
lost, faith forsaken, glory faded,"
The conference Is attended by ministers"
rrom all parts of Nebraska. The con
ventlon was begun Friday. It concludes
uiuuuuj morning. xne cnurch was
crowded to capacity. The devotional
hour was led by Rev. J. J. "Parker of
Against Favor for
WASHINGTON. Oct. lS.-Germany to
day added Its protest to those of the
other powers against any discrimination
adverse to commerce under the E per
cent differential section of the tariff act.
Although Solicitor Folk of the State de
partment, has expressed the opinion that
differential could not be claimed by any
of the German states outside of Prussia,
Mecklooburg-.Schwerln and the Hanse
atlo stafes, -the German government will
resist any such limitation.
The protest Is based on the claim that
there must be jnutuallty In International
Intercourse and as Germany has accorded
to the United States all the commercial
privileges covered by the treaty with
Prussia, It cannot be contended that the
remainder of Germany can be excluded
from reciprocal benefits accorded by the
United States to Prussia.
