POVERTY AND SIN TO CEASE
The largest afternoon audience of j
ue campaign bo far, heard mny
Qnnita trastfirrfav nrAnch on "The
uuuun j . v - - - -
Second Coming of Christ." the same
sermon being repeated In the even
ing. It is a subject, it is asserted, that
many ministers avoid, and the Bible
facts that the evangelist stated held
the audience in rapt attention.
"The world will wake up some
morning and find all the Christians
gone," Mr. Sunday asserted at the aft
ernoon meeting. "Christ at His sec
ond coming, will catch them all up to
KIui in the air. But there will be
inauy church members left on earth
and many an orthodox minister, be
cause they are not real members of
the spiritual church." j
' The time of the second coming Is not
known. Mr. Sunday quoted scripture,
l "Of that day knoweth no man, neither
" the Son." Then he asked, "llow does old
Russell know thenT"
Hy traced events following this second
Coming a prophesied In the Blble.

After that Christ will return toearth with
Ills saints for the millennial reign of 1.000
years. He will establish His kingdom In
Jerusalem. Thither will come also anti
christ and will deceive the people.
"The millenalum will be a grand period.
Our bodies won't grow old or tired or dis
eased and we will have faculties to enjoy
a thousand-fold more. Poverty, war, pes
tilence and sin will be unknown.
"At, Christ's second coming the dead la
Christ will be raised and wUl be caught
up to Him In the air along with those
still living. Many will see Christ without
first tasting death. . It makes no differ
ence te me whether I see death first or
not. 'I know I shall. see Him.
"Those who are members of the body of
Christ shall reign with Him through the
mlllenlum. I don't know. where I'll reign,
nor what Job God's going to give me.
But I am coming back to Omaha then
and I'm going to' look right at this lot
where the tabernacle stands and live over
those days once more."

Mr. Sunday referred to the belief ex

It was and that the. superabundance of
evil la fulfilling prophesy. The mlllenlum
will not bring Christ, he said, but the
coming of Christ will mark the dawn of
I the mlllenlum as the coming of the sun
marks the dawning of day.
Mr. Sunday named many signs of the
times that indicate that the day of
Christ's second coming Is not far off.
-Among these, he said, is the radical
tendency to depart from Christian faith
and subscribe to various false doctrines.
'Also, the return already of many Jews to
Jerusalem. "Many of the metal parts for
the rebuilding of the temple at Jerusaleum
are already on the ground," he asserted.
Emphasising the Importance of the sec-

Wireless Talk from
New York to Japan
is Now Possible
NEW YORK, Oct. . 1. Wireless tele
phone conversation between New York
and Yokohama, Japan, now Is possible
in the opinion of Bancroft Oherardl, en
gineer of the local plant of the American
Telephone and Telegraph company, who
added that he believed it possible to
peak around the world by this method.
Mr. Gherardl said this means that the
leading capitals of Europe and probably
Rio Ie Janeiro in South America, will
be brought within talking distance ' of
New York. ,
"This would be accomplished," he said,
"by a series of wire and wireless con
nections . wherever possible and wlrelfs
across the gaps. . In spite of the rapidity
of the transmission of electrical waves,
the delay for such a distance would be
appreciable, so that ttva speaker's voice
would return to him lagging, like an
echo. We have made testa of this phe
nomenon." , " ,

Of the fighting on the western front, the
Lokal Anseiger says:
"It cannot b denied that the new of
fensive of the enemy is of the greatest
Importance. The enemy obviously is
making repeated efforts to gain at least
a decisive success. How long he will be
able to maintain his efforts is uncer
tain, but we must expect that the heavy
fighting will continue."
The Vossische Ze tung says:
"The severe fighting has reached the
sixth day without slackening..
"Ia view of the bitterness and Inde
fatigable severity at the dally repeated I
attack we must come to the conclusion
that these offensives surpass all previous
operations of the pal. It is methodical
and a careful preparation wh.ch can on'y

Creek was against the resolution, but
it pasaed, anyway. Wooster. declared
he would not say whether he was
for or against woman suffrage, but
that the subject was not a proper one
for the farm congress to consider.
"I thank the women are a very vital
psrt of farm life," said George P. Hoy,
a confirmed bachelor, who has farmed In

Nevertheless, the bachelor'e comment
was sufficiently pointed to carry the
resolution, and. woman suffrage carried

In further resolutions, the congress re
affirmed its stand on temperance, on
the restriction of Immigration, and Its
stand for the postallzatlon of the tele
phone and telegraph lines. It advocated
that the parcel poat service should be
extended to cover full express service.
The congress reaffirmed its stand for
good roads, and took a etand for a fed

ducing the more common farm products.
A resolution to oppose the reopening
of the western freight rase by the rail

The congress adopted a resolution
favoring an adequate system of rural

fact that one-half the farmers are ten

HcHff, senior member ef the firm, so as
serted today In the first formal statement

The attitude of Kuhn, Loeb A Co., has

that the firm will not participate as such.
The decision of Kuhn, Ixeb & Co., not
