ASSERTS CHURCH INDIFFERENT Christians See People All Around Going to Hell and Never Try ' to Stop Them. J KEEPS COAT ON IN HOT BUILDING The first weekday afternoon j meeting In the Sunday tabernacle saw the auditorium of the building a little more than half filled and no one on the platform except a num-! ber of ministers and their wives and I less than fifty In the choir chairs. The audience was estimated at 8,600. j But this was no disappointment to j those in charge. In fact, It was said . to be a good showing for a weekday afternoon when most people are at work. In Des Moines the weekday afternoon meetings were not nearly so well attended, especially at the start of the campaign. The choir Is never used at the afternoon meetings except on Sundays. The sun beating down on the vast low roof of the building made the temperature high Inside. Most of the men In the audience took off their coats. Keeps oa Ills Coat. "Billy" didn't take off his coat, though the perspiration rolled from his face and soaked through the back of his ooat from shoulder to shoulder before he had fin ished his aermon. The audience sang several hymns, led by It. C. Brewster, who sang a solo also. Mr. Sunday atood at hla pulpit all through the singing, and then sailed Into his ser mon with a vigor that defied tha heat It was a defense of religious revivals and an attack on those who don't believe In them or aneer at them. Such he called 'fools" and "mutta" and "chumps." The church needs a revival, he said, beeause of Its Indifference to the evil of the world. 'T am amazed as I go up and down In the world and see the utter Indifference of the Christian people," ha declared. "They see people all around them that are going to hell and never try to stop them." Ho delivered straight, shots at" the church people and attacked their short comings. . , . Sv ? A Prayer lacgMtloa, "Don't Job-lot your sins In praying," ha ! said. - ."Make a list of thorn and Pray God to deliver you from them on fey one." . , He was especially bitter and contemptu ous against the proud and the envious. Drawing himself up and with a lordly gesture of the hand, he haughtily ex- I claimed: I "(Jet out of my way, Ford, j drive a Packard." Then he laughed and shook his head. "My, my, it's a good thing for some folks that I'm not God for about fifteen minutes," he chuckled. "You're envious, lots of you, because your neighbor can pay $20 for a hat and you only S3.4K. If 13.4S suits the slso of your pile. It's more honorable to wear that hat than to buy the 130 one and go Into debt. Bean soup Is better than por terhouse steak If beau soup suits the sise i of your pile. Patches are more honorable j than pawn tickets." Promptly at 3 o'clock Mr. Sunday closed his sermon with a prayer, beginning, "Well. Uod, we thank You for this splen did meeting." . . Carranza to Help Put Down Bandjts WASHINGTON. Bept. T.

Further Needs of Religious Revival Arc Given by Sunday "Pllljr" Sunday, at the tabornnclo Tiirs day evening, speaking on the need of rellirlous revivals, said: "Listen to me. In the economy of nature Ood provides for an occasional copious downpour of rain. You would be a fool to growl because it didn't rain all the time. Ood hn arrnned his spir itual kingdom so that he haa a copious downpour of 4ritual blraalniia. Ood Is rolling In spiritual wealth as well aa material. It la not thoiwht unwise to have a revival In business, oh, no every town has Its Commercial oiub. It is not thiuiKhl unwlao to Itava a revival In politics oh, no, ' Some ihiH'Io are scared to death that somebody mUht bo saved from hell by out-of-lhe-ordlnary method. "Political leaders wilt hire loaders, newspapw etiltors, publishers and will spnd money for (voters In order to get thoao who are indifferent to the pollilfil situation intereated that la nothing un der heaven but a political revival and you don't hear anybody growl about it. "in tho business world, listen. In the business world man must make tha Mar ket as well as the goods for the market He must make the goods, then he goes Into the market. He's got to do both. You've got all these institutions to create a demand for tho products these are bus iness revivals you have auto showa, they are auto revivals you have country fairs which sre nothing but revivals where they show cows, pigs, chickens, broad, butter, homes and all tha producta of the tnrm. Then what the revival la to business, what the election Is to poli tics, tho revival Is to reunion; what health Is to the Individual tho revival is to rollsion. Martin Luther saved Eu roo from spiritual death a spiritual revival under Martin Luther waa the caum of tho Reformation, nothing but a revival, and why any Lutheran will snap, snarl, growl about a revival when his church was born of a revival, 1 don't know. Saved from Herniation. "Wesley and Whltefleld saved Knulind from tho French Revolution. Kdwards, Finney and Moody lifted America from degradation by revivals of their day. The i prophets were all evangcliHts; John tho Baptist, the greatest man ever born of , woman, wna an vangellHt The church of Pentecost was born In religion In a time of revival. You turn up your nosns at a revival, when the very religion whloh you love wsa born In a time of revival. I wonder Ood don't knock you over. Taul was an evangelist, and when ever Paul was to preach or wherever he went they had to call out the police to protect him: he had a revival or a riot everywhere he went. You cut tho day of Pentecost out of history; you out Peter, James and Paul out of history, and what you have left would not make a decent rummage sale. "Any boy can throw a stone and break a stained glaas window, but it takes an artist to make one; any fool can build a fire and burn a building, but It takea a skilled mechanic to reconstruct It; a mob crucified Christ, but It took Ood to raise Him from the dead; any fool oan sneer at a revival; any fool can do that, and you are a fool If you do. "But you say by and through a revival we acknowledge we have backslidden. Mayor's Attorney Says Prosecution Is a Political Move INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.. Sept. 7. The trial of Mayor Joseph E.

BILLY'S BUGLE BLASTS. When you lift your hand against a revival you're a fol. I don't rare who you are or where you came from. Vou haven't Rot sense enough to pound sand In a rat bole. You can't saw wood with a hammer. 'It isn't Ood's Intention that the saloon shall triumph over the church.. To hell with the saloon. I'll gt them the lst scrap for (their money they ever had. . Thls Is a time when you'll have to show whether you are yellow or white, a man or a mutt, whether you side with decency or with the sneering gang of thugs that mock at Ood. , "You may say, 'Mr. Hunday, you don't conduct a revival the way I would.' No, and If I did I wouldn't be worth any njore than you are. . "If I had come to Omaha a souse or with a string of race horses they wouldn't have tried to peddle a .bunch .of black-hearted lies against me, as they have. And I'll hurl tt Into their dirty teeth. . A woman said to me, 'Mr. Sun day, I know I often lose my .tem per, but I get over it In a minute. Ho does a galling gun. Well, you don't put the community In possession of any Information they have not already got. You say It Is temporary; so was the war, but the slaves are free today. You say It Is temporary; bo Is rain, yet nature feels Ite refreshing power for weeka afterward. Exalt tha evangelist; it does nothing of the kind. Tiie evan gelist haa his place In Ood's economy aa much as the preacher. Ood has special men to do special work In special times. Many a man who la a success as a i preacher would be the worst failure you ever looked at as an evangelist. The preacher has hla place In Ood's economy and I have got mine. I believe Ood Al mluhty calls me to do what I am doing aa much as Dr. Ilaya or any other preacher. I could not be a pastor. I have received several Invltatlona and have had some flattering offers of salary, but if I accepted a pastorate I would buy a round-trip ticket A revival Is a convto tion of sin, a conviction of sin on the part of the church. "If they wish to begin anew with their responsibilities and obligations to Ood, they must begin at tha door of the ohurch of Ood, at the house of Ood, not at the saloons and not by the breweries and groggtiriea and red-light and stinking dance halls. Ashamed of Yoaraelvea. "You men are ashamed of youraelvea even now to think that you have not done mora for Jeaus Christ than you did. You Just beat a path to the store or of fice and iioma, went to church on Sun. day and back to tha store, and that la all you did, and you call that serving the Lord. "When Is a revival heeded T A preacher said to me In Iowa, 'I thought I had done my duty when I held up the bleeding form of Jesus Christ and dilated upon His precepts, but I find that I must talk upon sin.' You bet you mtist; many an old sinner Isn't fit for the balm of Ollead until he Is given a good, old fashioned fly blister and the currycomb of the law. And some old pachyrems will 'sit In their pews and, one shake, like a flat-tailed aheep In the rain, on shake, and they're dry. "The spirit of Ood flies from the scenes of strife and discord. You might aa well expect a mummy to speak and bear chil dren; you might as well expect hell to sing the doxology. You might as well try to batter down Gibraltar sheeting green peas with a popgun as to expect that. "If there Is a woman I pity, It la the society woman who lives for a few empty-headed, beer-soaked grass-widowers, Jilted Jays with cracked reputations. When Revival la Needed. "A revival Is needed when the worldly spirit la In the church of Ood. It Isn't necessary to do something Inconsistent. A ship s all right In the sea, but all wrong when the sea la In It. Tho church of Ood Is all right in the world, but all wrong when the world la in the church. Some people come to church on Sunday morning and on Monday morning they take a header Into the world, and the church never sees'them again until Sun day morning. They squat and taks up a littlo spaoe In the pew. and stay there j and put a little money en the plate, but.

The lmae diate objective of the Austro-German coiupalgn In Russia becomes clearer with the growing Indications that th Invaders need the Baltic port of Riga, not only as a base for present opera tions In the direction of Petrograd, but as winter quarters In case the at tempt to reach the Russian capital should be postponed .until next spring. Field Marshal Von Hlndenburg is experionclng great difficulty In bridg ing the portions of the Dvlna held by the Germans. The current of tho river is too swift for the construction of pontoon bridges under the Rus sian artillery fire. As the rainy sea son comes on It will be more diffi cult for the Invaders to bring up sup plies for their advancing forces, and consequently Riga as a base becomes more vital to the success of Von Hln denburg's plana.
