Rev. Paul Waldschmidt of
Howells Fails to Convince
Judge Button of His
Schuyler, Neb., June 29. (Special
Telegram.) On May 20 last Judge
Frederick W. Button licensed Rev.
Paul Waldschmidt, a German Luth
eran minister, to preach at , Howells,
but admonished him to preatch in the
English language only. Rev. Wald
schmidt did not obey the court's
orders and preached his sermon in
German and th: local Council of De
fense received complaints concerning
the same and upon investigation the
charges were shown to be well found
ed. Senator John R. Henry, chairman
of the local Council of Defense, had
the pastor summoned to appear be
fore Judge Button today.
Rev. Waldschmidt pleaded guilty
to the charge, and upon promises
being made that it would not be re
peated, the court was about to excuse
the minister with a sort of reprimand
and a caution as to the future, but
Judge Button asked the minister a
further question as to what he
thought would happen to an American
preacher in Germany if he preached a
sermon in English after the govern
men had warned him not to. Rev.
Waldschmidt 'answered that he
thought the German government
would take into consideration the cir
cumstances and deal with the erring
minister in a humane and considerate
manner. Judge Button promptly told
the minister that his reply well told
that he was 100 per cent pro-German
and revoked his license. Judge But
ton stated that he will not tolerate
anything that smacks of disloyalty in
word or sentiment, a stand which all
people in this judicial district strongly
endorse and applaud.
