Speaker ias agreed to rcc- ognlze Chalrm an vor or tho house committee on agriculture on Monday for the purpose of calling up under suspen sion of the rules the bill to aid In the prevention of hog cholera, which has passed the senate earrylnk a toOO.000 ap propriation, and recommended by the house agricultural committee, with an amendment appropriating $100,000 to combat detourlne In western horses. The jeport on the bill was prepared by Chairman Icver. assisted "by Con gressman Sloan of Nebraska, who is ex pected to speak on the bill Monday when It Is brought up.. Inasmuch as hoar cholera, according to reports from the great packing centers, causes the taking of about 11 per cent of the hogs passed through anto-morten Inspection to be condemned after post mortem Inspection, the enormous Importance of this meas ure can bo understood. Nebraska and Iowa being the great hog feeding states of the union, are perhaps more deeply Interested In the pending measure than any other commonwealths. Widows May Complete Entries. Homesteaders will be deeply Interested in a ruling by Secretary T,ane of the In terlor department, which In a measure reverses a ruling In previous effect, It relates to homestead entries by entrymen who died before the six months of the period during which they must reside upon the lands expired. The ruling di rectly affects two entries in Congress man ICInkald's district, that of two wid ows, one, Mrs. Maggie Johnson, of Sco tia, and the other Mrs. Jessie I". Hodder of Garden county. Both are widows of men who took up homesteads and who died before they were able to file their second papers. Under the old ruling these deaths would have made It Impossible for the widows to carry out tho demands of the home stead law and eventually to file final proof. The Injustice of this Is seen by the secretary, and inasmuch as the wid ows in question have shown every Indi cation of a determination to comply strictly with the requirements of tho ! ,,onle8tcad act they ar entitled ' to prove "i' J""t as ii meir husbands had con tinued to live. Judge Klnkald today no tified tho two widows of the decision, which Is an Important one to homestead ers eveiy where. Laboratory to la.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 16.-Representa-tlvo Burnett of Alabama, chairman of the house committee on Immigration, predicted tonight that bj a compromise on the Pacific! coast fight to exclude Japanese and all other Asiatics, congress at this session would enact legislation to bar out the Hindus. "Whether the Immigration committee will go further than that I do not know," Mr. Burnett said, "but there is no gen tlemen's agreement or favored nation ar rangement with Great Britain, so far as the Hindus are concerned. There ought to bo prompt legislation to nip In the bud any steamship arrangements to bring on an extraordinary number of tho Hindus, a project which the immigration bureau once discovered and foiled." Representative Baker of California and other Pacific coast representatives still insist upon legislation for general ex clusion of Asiatics. Representative Church of California, who on Thursday will mge the Immigration committee to report his bill to exclude the Hindu la borers, said tonight ho believed the com mittee would favorably report the meas ure and that there was no question as to the house passing It. Chairman Burnett said he was confi dent the president would not veto his general immigration bill, now beforo tho senate committee, because of the literacy test. He asserted that stories of a possl blo veto hod bcon started for the purpose or Influencing the vote on tho measure In the senate.

It must give off an inspirational Influence that shall find Its way Intu every channel of life and help to make mep and society rlgtietous. When the church duos this better than H Is doing It today there will be less aoccaslon for trying to folat upon It the functions that belong to other agencies and not to the church; less cause for no milch com plaint of civic failure and social and In dustrial unrighteousness." Thcso' pungent statements were made by Rev. Nathaniel. McOlf fin In the course of a perm on at iywe-Avenue Presby terian church yesterday morning on "Tho Church of Today." , Ills toxt was Mathew IBilS "Andvl say unto thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against It," "A little while before Poter had de' fined Je,sus Christ aa the. Son of the llv lug Ood," sold Dr. McfJIffln, "therefore II waa upon this rock, the rock of Peter's conception of Christ as the Di vine Son of flod, equal In power with the Father, that He built His church. It was, of course, not upon Peter, th man or apostle, that He built His church, but, I say, upon Peter's concep tion of Christ." As to the somewhat common belief that the church Is losing Its hold on the world and therefore falling, Dr. McGlf fln railed the pople to remember Christ's words that the church would never fall, never surrender "and the gates of hell shall not prevail against It." ' "When we fall Into the error of think ing thai, tho church Is apt to fail, we are losing sight of the fact that the church as established , hy Jestm-Chrlst Is Inde structible. Of course, then, the church must lay hold of and teach the truth as It Is In Christ Jesus. It must be His church, if It Is not to fall. And above all. It must teach the divinity of Jesus Christ, as Its cardinal doctrine. "Perhaps the reason why the world often feels that the church Is falling Is that It sees so many Individuals In tho church falling. That Is not a proper estimate. I admit that the conduct of the Individual churchman must count, must be taken Into account, but It must not be reckoned In the final analysis as the bails of Judging whether or not the church, this Institution established by Christ, the Divine Son of oOd, Is fall ing, for we have the promise that It cannot fall-'the gates of hell shall not prevail against It.' "I repeat that the mission of the church Is, not to police or prosecute the world, but to Inspire It with the truth of the gospel, which It shall preach and teach and live with suoh persuasion and consistency as by Its very power of er. ample to draw the world unto Christ. The church cannot find In the civil or official affairs of the world any power or Instrument of persuasion to com pare with tho power of a dynamic gos pel thus promulgated, "The men of the hurch can get no where by preaching or teaching anything less than Christ bade them to set forth, all of which Is wrapped up In the fa t of the divinity of Christ, to which we must hold eternally " NEW ORGANIZATION PLANNED TO GET RID OF LOAI SHARK EVIL Industrial Finance Corporation with Six Million Capital Stook Files Articles in Virginia.
