Be It Hereby Resolved for the In-coming New Year:
From he Governor of Nebraska
T HOPE to sco tho reforms reco memndeel iu ray messngo to the
A last legislature worked out during ..the coming year. Tho
time intervening since the adjournment of the legislature has
been too short to permit the erection of the reformatory, for
which an appropriation has been made, and the demands upon
the time of the new board of control nave been
too numerous to permit tho carrying out of all tho
reform measures for which provision was made.
But it is my intention to see that these reforms
are carried to completion during tho year 191-L
"With the hearty co-operation of tho other offi
ciate of the state, tho support of a lively public
sentiment and a generous, enterprising press, T
believe this will be possible.
Bishop Williams on the New Year
SO FAR as our own contribution to good cltlzonshlp during tho year 1914 Is
concerned, It can bo truo In lta dogrco only as wo cherish nnd prnctlco
those moral Ideals which aro to bo traced In tho history and traditions of
our beloved land. If wo aro wise, and will profit by tho mistakes of tho past,
and the many grave and unsatisfactory conditions of tho present, thero may be
wrought out with our help the best and most representative government
mankind has ever known. To bring this ideal condition to paBs means tho
Bpeedy overthrow of every form of oppression and wrong; tho affording to
every man, woman and child tho fullest opportunity for tho legitimate pursuit
of life, liberty and happiness; tho restoration of a bellof In tho sanctity of nitir
riago; obedience to tho moral law of God, Christian homes, detlnlto bollet In
tho principles of revealed religion, honesty in business, lore
of tho brotherhood, tho abolition of existing falso and arti
ficial class distinctions, the abolition of child labor, awcat
shops and tho sacrifice of lnnocont victims to solflshness and
lust. When thero shall bo industrial workers, but no longor
Industrial slaves, and whoro there shall bo found, as nowher0
else on this earth, tho truest womanhood, tho noblest man
hood and tho sweetest childhood. Thcso things I bollovo to
bo embodied in tho futuro, to bo gradually unfolded ns our
people learn to far God, and to work righteousness.
Bishop of Nebraska.
Live On the Sunny Slope
I RESOLVE to meet the Now Year with a smile and not with
a grouch; to live on tho sunny slope of tho mountain and to
porsuado as many others as possible to move over to tho opti
mistic sido of life; to walk smd work by faith and not by doubt;
to look through humanity up to humanity's God, nnd look
through God up to God's humanity; to lovo tho
flowers, and tho stars, and tho birds, and tho chil
dren, and folks generally; to read tho best books,
hear tho finest music, seo tho highest art; to lend
a hand in mnkiug other follows' burdens lighter;
to get moro of tho Christ spirit into all I think
and say and do; to bo ready for any duty, nnd
thus for any world at any time of day; to make
fewor resolutions, but to keep them better.
Bishop of tho Mothodist Episcopal Church.
Patience, Help and Forgiveness
I SHALL be patient with all of thoso I am called on to doal with,
give a helping hand wherever I can; will try and forgive those of
my enemies that aro "worth forgiving, and do everything as my con

More Consideration for Fellowmen
I AM resolved that during tho year to come I will strive to treat my fel
low men with moro consideration; that I will tako more time to learn
and know their good qualities as well as their shortcomings; that I
may learn to practlco tho rule "Love thy neighbor as thyself." With this
aim In the foreground, I believe that the inevitable result will be the bet

become better fitted to discharge tho position' of trust which has been

Message for the New Year.
You request a message for the now
year- What shall it beT A hundred
thoughts crowd the mind. Just now,
however. I am thinking and naturally
so. at this Juncture of the year ot the
grace of forgetfulness and of the grace
of remembrance; remembrance ot what
ought to be remembered; forgetfulness
of what ought to be forgotten. What a
desirable goal for the new year the at
tainment of these graces.
But how shall one attain? I wonder If
fidelity to fcome such rubrlos as these will
not bring victory?

and holiest of persons, Jesus Christ
