Important Kewi in Connection with
LmiUnia Caie Received by
DELIVERED ON SPECIAL TRAIN
WASHINGTON. Feb. 4. !
pitches on the Lusltanta situation
from Colonel E. M. House, now on
special mission in Europe for
President Wilson, are believed to
hare been delivered to the president
today on his spctal train.
Colonel House discussed the sltu
atlon with high German officials, In
forming them ot the position of the
United States and receiving In re
tarn first hand Information of their
viewpoint. Details are not disclosed
in anjr such dispatches as have been
received here, but they reported
Colonel House found it unnecessary
to remain In Berlin as long as he
originally had Intended.
I.aslfaala Dle)ae4 Chiefly.
It I said Colonel Houm probably dls
t'ussed other subjects than the Luaitania
rae with the Oermen officials, but that
the I.usltanla situation occupied the, ma
jor portion of hi dispatch to the presi
dent. The semi-official statement of the for
eign office, forwarded to this country,
that there waa "reasonable" hope that a
communication which had been started
to Count von Hemstorff would prove
llrfartory to Ire t'nlted State, la taken
In official and dlplomatlo quarters to
mean that Uernieiiy has net accepted the
tentative form of proposal exactly as It
was submitted. The opinion and hope
waa expressed by tilplomat In a position
to be familiar with the status. of the ne
gotiation that the cardinal points sot
forth In the tentative form approved by
Secretary Lansing remained.
It was said here that there were cer-1
tain words which the Berlin officials be
lieve could not be Included in the final
settlement of the controversy because of
concern for German public opinion. It
waa thought certain that this phase has
been explained to Colonel House, and that
he in turn has conveyed the explanation
ta Present Wilson.
Is Kevtaeal Considerably.
It was said tonight that the language
In the tentative form of proposal sub
mitted to Hecretsry ' Lansing last week
in regard to Germany' expressed hope
that the t'nlted Htate do everything
possible toward securing freedom of the
ia had befn revised considerably, bo
cause it waa said that the words used
mlMht have conveyed the Impression that
Oermany . was making that question a
condition of lettlemoit. This it was ex
plained1, was In nowise the Intention of
the Herman government. '
The latest communication to Count
von Bernwtorff had not. It was said, nl

"If revivals did nothing else they

Bristol in bis talk to a full house
of men and women, in the Methodist
forward movement rally at the First
Methodist church last night. "Re
vivals would be worth while ' for
that alone, for during the lona; win-1
ler evenings the young people would I
lie there instead of In other gather- j
ings where they should not be. There
is no time so fruitful for the works
of the devil as during the long win-
ter evenings. That is the time when
young people get together. What is
the time when, down in the country, j
they have their dances and their
card parties, and the devil makes
Bishop BYlstol made a plea for re
vivals, but admonished those who seek
to lesd other to Christ, first to get the
power of the Holy Ohost In their own
Converted by John Dale.
The bishop incidentally told some in
teresting reminiscences about the late
John Hale of Hanscom Park liethodlat
church. He declared that John bale
wa the man who first brought him to
Christ, during a revival back east many
years ago, when he waa a small boy.
II said John Dale was so good and
kind, and made auch a friend of him a
a boy that he was willing to do anything
Mr. Dale said, and when Mr. Dale cam
down the aisle In a big revival where
young Bristol had cone to scpff and
giggle, and placed his arm around Bris
tol shoulder and anked him to give him
self to Christ, he just could not resist
"There comes a picking time on the
farm In the cherry season, or In the ap
ple season." said the bishop. ."There
come a picking time In the work of the
church. And It waa during one of the
big revlvajs that John Dale came down
the aisle and picked me.
"Yes, and I can count at least a doien
minister today who came to Jesus ChrlAt
through the Influence of that great, good
man, John Dale."

Bishop Theodore H. Henderson of
Chattanooga, urged personal work by the
members of the church, but admonished
th ministers to supplement the cam
paign with their own work on Sunday.
He urged the minister to ask their
congt'eitation to write the name of all
men of their acquaintance who would
be better men if Jeaua Christ were In
their live. He told them that then these
should be tabulated. "If you have but
thirty-five men in the church and you
find you have 100 namea passed In," h
said, "divide them up and give each
member three or four of them to aee.
Let them have definite ones upon which
to work, and let them go to them per
sonally and earnestly."
