lb In the course of his Wednesday
afternoon' sermon. Btlly Sunday im
plied that Omaha has been ' hied by
the throat and choked to death by
saloons and breweries." It was his
first direct concrete statement re
garding local saloon influence, pis
exact words were:
"If any community has been held
by the throat and choked to death
by saloons and breweries, it is
At the close of his sermon, people
thought that Mr. Sunday was going j
to start afternoon trail-hitting lor
he called ont:
"I go out with the cross of the J
Son ot God. Who will gather be
neath this standard? All who will,
stand up." '
Practically everybody stood up.
But no further pledge or evidence
of faith was called for.
Mr. Sunday's frequent and vigorous
criticism of preacher and' church mem
bers were repeated tn yesterday's after
noon sermon, which was baaed upon
the story of the loavea and fishes. After
whipping his stinging- lash at ministers,
church members and various religious
and other beliefs and activities not to
his liking, which the revivalist labeled
"Jack-aas nonsense," he made his re
mark about saloons In Omaha, and then
"took a fall" out of downtown churches
which move out to the suburbs and re
build, when the congregations become
large and outgrow their old popertles.
Religions Club Houses. '
Dubbing scmh edifices "gorgeous reli
gious clubhouses." Mr. Sunday asserted
that instead of singing hymns in them,
the church members "ought to be down
town, shooting tha skunks, digging up
, the gophers and killing the rattlesnakes

"They think they " have discharged
their responsibilities,, to the messes left
behind," he continued, "when they go
downtowa once a year and squirt a little

Btlly Sunday mentioned no particular
churches in this connection, but his
auditors recalled that several Omaha
congregations have recently moved from
their old downtown locations to the west
part of the city.
Saadaylarus ia Sentences.
Such a policy, Mr. Sunday asserted,
amounted to "retreating before - the
saloons and the other instruments of the,

"The church has been on the defen-1
