END OFTHE WORLD
CALAMITIES MEANINGFUL TO
They Believe That the Prince of the
i Powers of Darkness, Knowing His
Sway Soon to Be Doomed, Is Making
the Most of His Time Yet Remaining.
The days will come in which there

upon another that shall not be

famines and pestilences and there

Deaths from tornados, murders,
wrecks and suicides which have
startled the world for the past week
are but an evidence of efforts of the
prince of the power of darkness to
make the most of his allotted time be
fore the end of the world. So say the
Seventh Day Adventists.
"The Bible teaches us," said E. W.
Catlin, elder of the Adventist church,

day, "that as the end of the world
draws near Satan tries to make his

them as it once did. Altho I would
not say that there is any direct authori

are a warning from God that people
should repent. I believe that this is so.
The calamities are signs of the times,

before it is too late. It is very prob
able that the subject will be taken up

LOGAL BAPTISTS APPROYE
AGREE TO HOLD JOINT MEETING
WITH EASTERN MINNESOTA AS-
SOCIATION NEXT YEAR.
The Minneapolis and Eastern Min
nesota Baptist associations will unite
in their first joint meeting next year
in Anoka. The Eastern Minnesota as
sociation voted in the affirmative on
the proposal last week, and today the
matter was settled by vote of the Min
neapolis^ association. The Minneapolis
association has twenty-one churches
and the Eastern association twelve. A
new church was admittedLoyalty
church Northeast Minneapolis, with
eighty-five members. The totai mem
bership of the Minneapolis association
is 5,040. The total expenditures of
the churches were $56,200.74 on them
selves and $16,204.69 for beneficences.
Rev. F. R. Leach reported for the
committee on state of religion Rev.
D. L. Babcoek reported thirty-five .h,
deaths. Mrs. W. S. Barrett reported
"Church Evangelism" was discussed
by Rev. W. G. Clark, who spoke on
"The Pastor's Relation," and by Rev.
F. R. Leach on "The Relation of the
Laity." Under the topic "The Minis
try of Today," Dr. A. T. Fowler dis
cussed "The Training," pointing out
that an educated ministry was never
more needed, and there should be a
teaching ministry as the forerunner of
evangelistic work. Rev. G. H. Gamble
spoke on How This Needed Training
Should Be Secured."
The larger work of the church was
taken up this afternoon. Rev. J. E.
Conant made an address on the way it
is carried on thru the American Baptist
Missionary union. Rev. G. F. Holt for
the home missionary society spoke on
Some Present Day Problems Confront
ing American Christians and How to
Meet Them." The Woman's Baptist
Foreign Missionary society of the west
was represented by Mrs. Salquist of
China and the Woman's Home Mission
ary society by Miss Finley of St. Paul.
Tonight the meeting will close with a
young people's rally, at whicft Rev. R.
N. Martin will make an address.
The Minneapolis Baptist association
yesterday discussed earnestly the ques
tion of the church receiving money re
puted to be dishonestly acquired by the
donor. The topic was stated in general
terms, but the name of the oil king was
used frequently by the speakers and
his methods severely scored.
Professor George D. Shepardson up
held the receiving of such money, tak
ing the ground that the church may
accept money from any source for
beneficent uses. He was supported by
A. F. Gale and Rev. C. J. Triggerson.
Judge John Day Smith, for the nega
tive, made a plea for a higher standard
of morality in the church. He said:
I would rather not carry the gospel
to the heathen than be a worshiper
of the golden calf at home." Dr. A. J.
Frost praised the attitude of the secu
lar press opposing the acceptance of
the gifts and cited the instance of the
Church of England refusing the offer
of a large gift from a rich brewer.
The following officers of the associa
tion were elected: Moderator, W. E.
Clark clerk, J. F. Holt trustees of the
widows' and orphans' fund, M. M.
Lund, E. J. Wilcox and F. T. Barnum.
The annual sermon was preached by
Rev. J. E. Conant on "Fellowship in
Christ's Sufferings." A Sunday school
session was conducted in the afternoon
by Rev. E. R. Pope. Tn the evening the
song service was conducted by Rev.
Theodore Hevsham and Rev. R. M.
West delivered an address on
Salt of the Earth."

McGhee's Address Indicates New
Point of Attack on State's

Anoka? Minn., May 12.New evi

will try to prove that there is a dis
crepancy in the state's evidence re

three were getting $2 a day when th/y

Kolb took the stand and again made
a good witness. His manner was much
better than at the first trial. He had,
not any of the flippancy that charac
terized his testimony then. He denied
emphatically that he was on any car
the night of the murder or that he had
ever been at Columbia Heights.
Kolb's father and mother attend
every session. Hammon'B father, a

A NEW SCHRAPS PROBLEM
MUCH ARGUED LICENSE QUES-
TION IS BROUGHT TO THE
John P. Nash today applied for a
warrant for the arrest of Charles R.
Schraps for selling liquor without a
license. Mayor D. P. Jones signed the
license yesterday afternoon, after a
conterence with City Attorney Frank
Healy, and shortly afterward liquor was
served to customers from a supply in
the basement of the cafe.
Evidence was obtained last evening
by Nash, and Judge J. H. Steele this
morning set out to make good his threat
to prosecute Mr. Scraps for selling
liquor without license, on the ground
that the law prohibiting more than' five
saloons in any single block facing the
patrol limits, was still the law, and that
the council has no righr to violate it.
Judge Steele immediately encountered
He found that the license stood in the
name of the Schraps Catering company.

liquor shall be issued only to individuals
and not to corporations or partnerships.
The controller explained that the
license was made out to the company
because it was the name certified to
by the city clerk as having been grant

reference to the official proceedings,

I The general sentiment seemed to be in
favor of having a central storage house in

SangarfestChoirs Already Drilling
on Numbers Selected for Program.
Sangarfests for church choirs are
somewhat unusual, but the Norwegian
Lutheran synod in America does not
hold them to be inappropriate, and is
arranging for a pretentious musical fes
tival of this sort, to be held at the
Auditorium Minneapolis, June 21 and
22. Rev. J. W. Preus of this city, chair
man of the executive committee, says
that the outlook is most encouraging
and predicts a big chorus of several
hundred voices organized from among
the church choirs of the synod. Thfe
twin cities will supply the largest part
of the chorus, having 200 voices, but
there will be valuable additions from
other parts of the state, from Iowa and
Wisconsin, and possibly other states.
Choirs from Decorah, Iowa, La Crosse
Kolb had worked five andji and Stoughton, Wis. Stillwater, and
Starbuck, Minn., have reported, but
many others are are also coming. Spe
cial excursion rates have been granted
by the railways reaching this city and
a large attendance is thus assured.
Among the many numbers which have
been prepared for the sangarfest are
the following: "Hosanna," Mozart
"Hallelujah Chorus" and "See the
Conquering Hero," Handel "The
Heavens Are Telling," Haydn "G.ioer
Portene Hoie," Wennerberg "Jubilate,
Amen," Kjerulf "Jubilee Cantata, No.

under the leadership of Carlo A. Sperati,
will assist. The choruses, both male and
mixed, will be under the direction of
John Dahle of St. Paul, a composer and
director of high standing.
The Synod sangerbund was organized
two years ago during 'the church's semi
centennial celebration at Decorah, and

Minneapolis in all probability will

Neither has made any definite an
nouncement and in either case the mat
ter of coming out as a*candidate will
depend entirely upon the "lay" of the
land when the time for action comes.
Mr. Jones, however, states that he, for
one, is out to see that Hennepin county
is not turned into a bloody battle
ground as it was last fall. He has been
out of the city most pf the time since
the legislature adjourned, and returned
a few days ago. When questioned in re
gard to the gubernatorial crop appear
ing in different parts of the state, he
said: "There will be plenty of candi
dates, no doubt, and they will all want
Hennepin county, I suppose, the same
as last year. I am willing to say, how
ever, that as soon as outsiders, or any
body else, try to come in here and start
the muss and discord we had last year,
I may decide to step into the ring my
self. Furthermore, I believe, wonderful
as it may seem, that Ramsey county will
stand back of me in such an action
rather than repeat the trouble it had
during the last campaign.''
Mr. Fletcher has not yet made any
statement. Some of his friends are do
ing the talking in his behalf.
The state senate will produce a crop
of candidates, but it is hardly thought
possible that they will carry a contest
among themselves further than a pre
liminary test. The senate is so well
organized that it would prefer to avoid
war within' the organization. Among
the senatorial eligibles who have been
talked of by their friends are Andrew
