A mild sensation was created at yes

A Menzel In the course of his sermon,
aeverely arraigned the custom prevailing
among German societies uf holding so

before the beginning of Lent.
The sermon was in German, and many
members of the local German societies

Rev Dr Menzel Is the pastor.
In his sermon.. Dr Menzel severely critl-
Ised ' fools' sessions," particularly when
tbey are given In localities which have

Rev Dr Menzel said that the time short

TO CAPTURE S
Roosevelt Hears that Taft
Controls Through Fed
HAS HOPES OP TEXAS
New Tork. Feb lA-CoL Roosevelt re
celed word from Texas to-day that his
ardent supporter, Cecil Lyon, national
state committeeman, is winning out In his
fight to present a Taff delegation from
being sent to Chicago. It made, the
colonel chuckle when be heard that Presi
dent Taft had chosen H. F. Macrregor
to lead the Taft campaign In Texas, In-
stead of Lyon. The colonel has word
that Lyon has made such Inroads on the
administration strength In Texas that It
is almost a certainty that a solid Roose
elt delegation will march Into the Chi
cago convention ball.
While the reports from Texas are en
couraglng and Roosevelt has also heard
of gains for him In the western part of
South Carolina, and in Mississippi, It Is
known that he Is not counting too much
on the solid South for Chicago delegates.
Federal Appointees Control.
The colonel's workers beyond the Ma
son and Dixon line report that the Re
publican machines, almost without ex
ception, are under control of the admin
istration, through the Federal office ap
pointees'. Unless these appointees see a
chance of Roosevelt capturing a formid
able array of delegates from the North,
he Is Informed, they will not think of
flopping to him. The only hope Roose
elt has to get a fair croft of Southern
delegates Is to show that be is likely to
be nominated If he can develop suf
ficient strength to indicate this outcome,
he may hope, his managers In the South
tell him, to break down the Taft sup
port there. The colonel thus far has
been able to get only two delegates,
these from Alabama, out of the twenty
eight elected from the South In this con
rroirramme of Ohio lalt.
Roosev elt leaves here Tuesday for New
Tork In time to see some of his political
friends before he starts for Columbus
that night. He said to-dav that he will
not touch upon hfs candidacy In his
Columbus speech It will deal entirely
with a declaration of his latest revised
progressive principles, and may be re
garded as his platform In the ante-contention
fight. It Is possible the ex
President may speak from the rear of
the train as It passes Uiroogh Cleveland
on his return Wednesday night. He wilt
remain In New Tork after getting back
from Columbus, until Saturday night,
when he makes his four days' trip to
Mrs Roosevelt is to start next Satur
day on a prolonged trip to Panama. After
her departure, the colonel will -plunge Into

Col Rooseelt was asked to-day about
the story that he would eventually In
dorse James R. Garfield as the progressh e
candidate for the nomination
Ha. ha. ha'" laughed the colonel. "So
they'e put me down now as switching
from PInchot to Garfield That's funny.
"I suppose soon the) 11 have me sup

"All these stories are perfectly rldleu
