PRESCOTT, ARIZONA, WEDNESDAY. MARCH 4, 1903.
Celebration in New York of
Anniversary of Bir;h ot
President Roosevelt's Address on Method
ism Which Was Delivered Yester
day in Carnegie Hail.
New York, Feb. 27. The bi-ceuten-uia!
meeting of the birth of Johu
Wesley was celebrated here at Car
negie hall last night. Amougthe speak
ers of the occasion was President
Roosevelt. whoM' address follows :
Mr. Chairman. Ladies and gentle
1 am glad of the chauce of address
ing this repres. H alive body of the
greaUcburcb which Wesley founded,
on the occasion of the commemoration
of the two hundreth anniversary of
his birth. America, moreover, has a
jeculiar proprietary claim on Wes
ley's memory, for it is on our conti
nent that the Methodist church has
received its greatest development.
In the days of our colonial life Meth
odism was not on the whole a great
factor in the religious and social life
of the people. The Congregational
ists were supreme throughout most of
New England : the Episcopalians on
the seaboard irom New York south
ward; while the Presbyterian congre
gations weit- numerous all along what
was then the entire western frontier
and the Quaker. Catholic, and Dutch
Reformed church each had develoo-I
menus in special places. The great
growth of the Methodist church, like
the great growth of the Baptist
church, began at about the time of
the Revolutionary war. Today my
theme is purely Methodism.
Since the days of the revolution not
only has the Methodist church in
creased greatly in the old communi
ties of the thirteen original states,
but it has played a peculiar and
prominent part in the pioneer growth
of our country and has in consequence
assumed a position of immense in
nortance throughout the vast region !
west of the Alleuhenies which has
been added to our nation since the!ana sympathy for. aud under
days when the Continental Congress l
For a ceutury after the declaration
of independence t he greatest work of j
our people, with the exception only
of the work of sell preservation under
Lincoln, was the work of the pioneers
as they took pos.-e.-. ion of this conti
nent. During t hat century we push
ed westward from the Alleghenies to ,
the Pacific, southward to the gulf and
the Kio (Grande, aud also took posses
sion of Ala-ka. T! rk ot advanc
ing our Ix.undarv. ui rushing the
frontier across forest and desert and
mountain chain, was the great tvpical ;
work of our nation: and the men who
did it the frontiersmen, the pion-
the backwoodsmen, the plains-
men. mountain men formed a class
by themselves. It was an irou task,
which none but men of iron soul and
iron liody could do. The meu who
carried it to a successful conclusion
had characters strong alike for good
and for evil. Their rugged natures
made them poers who served light
or darkness with tierce intensity:
and together with heroic traits they
had those evil and dreadful tendencies
which are but too apt to be fouud in
characters of hero;c possibilities.
Such men make the most efficient ser
vants of the Lord if their abounding
vitality aud energy are directed
aright : aud if misdirected their in
fluence is equally potent against the
cause of Christianity and true civili
zation. In the bard and cruel life of
the iorder. with its grim struggle
agiust the forbidding forces of wild
nature and wilder meu. there was
much to pull the frontiersman down.
If left to himself, without 'moral
teaching and moral guidance, without
any of the influences that tend toward
the uplifting of man and the subduing
of the brute within him. sad would
have tjeeu his. aud therefore our. fate.
From this fate we have been largely
rescued by the fact that together with
the rest of the pioneers went the pion
eer preachers: and all honor be given
to the Methodists for the great pro
portion of these pioneer preachers
whom thev furnished.
These preachers were of the stamp
of old Pe'er Cartwright meu who
.nn.-ouir nr.. uaiusui
in common wnn tneir nock, and wno
in addition tamed the wild aud fierce i
spirits of their fellow pioneers. It
was uot a task that could have been
accomplished by men desirous to live
in the soil places of the earth and to
walk easily on life's journey. They
had to possess the spirit of the martyr.-:
but not of martyrs who could
merely surfer, not of martyrs who
could oppose only assive endurance
to wrong. The pioneer preachers
warred against the forces of spiritual
evil with tiie sauie fiery zeal auden
ergy that they and theirfellows show
ed in the coutpiertt of the rugged con
tinent They had iu them the heroic
spirit that scorn ease if it must le
purchased by failure to do duty, the
spirit that courts" risk and a life of j
hard endeavor if the goal to Ik- reach- 1
ed is really wort h aitaiuiug. (Jreat is-)
our debt to the-e men aud scant tde i
patience we need show toward their !
critics. At times they seemed hard
aud narrow to th..-.- whose training
aud surroundings had saved them
from similar temptations: and they
have leen criticised, as all men.
whether missionaries, soldiers, explor
ers, or frontier settlers, are criticised
when they go forth to do the rough
work that must inevitably Ik- doue by
those who act as the first harbingers,
the first heralds, of civilization iu the
-world's dark places. It is easy for
those who stay at home in comfort,
who never have to see humanity iu the
raw. or to strive against tbe dread
fnl naked forces which appeal- cloth
ed. hidden, and subdued iu civilized
life it is easy for such to criticise the
men who. in rough fashion, and amid
grim surroundings, make ready the
way for the higher life that is to come
afterv -irds: but let us all rememlter j
that the MUtempte.l ami the effortless !
should be cautious in paxsiug too I
heavy judgment upon their brethren
who may show hardness, who may be
guilty of shortcomings, but who
nevertheless do the great .lee.!- by
which mankind advance.-. These
pioneers of Methodism had the strong,
militant virtues which go to the ac
complishment of such great deeds
Now and then they liet rayed the
shortcomings natural to men of their
type; but their shortcomings seem
small indeed when we place Ix-side
them the magnitude of the work they
And now friends, in celebrating the
wonderful growth of Methodism, in
rejoicing at the good it has done the
country and to mankind. 1 need hardly
ask a body like this to remember that
the greatness of the fathers becomes
to the children a shameful thing if
tbey use it only as an excuse for inac
tion instead of as a spur to effort for
noble aims. I speak to you not only
as Methodists I speak to you a.-
American citizens. The pioneer days
are over. We now all of us form parts
of a groat civilized nation, with a
complex industrial and social life and
. i , , . . f . i ,
infinite possibilities both for good and
for evil. The instruments with
which, and the surroundings in which,
we work, have changed immeasurably
from what they were in the days when
the rough backwoods preachers minis-
tered to the moral and spiritual needs
of their rough backwoods congrega-
tions. But if we are to succeed, the
spirit in which we do our work must
be the same as the spirit in which they
did theirs. These men drove forward.
and fought their way upward, to sue
cess, because their sense of duty was
in their hearts, in the very marrow of
their bones. It was not with them

They did not have one kind of con
science for one side of their lives and
another for another.
Well, if we are to succeed as a na
tion we must have the same spirit m
us. We must lie absolutely practical,
of course, and must face facts as they
are. The pioneer preachers of .Metho
dism could not have held their own
for a fortnight if they had not shown
an intense practicality of spirit, if
thev had not
lossessed the broadest
standing ot. their tellow men. tint
in addition to the bard. practical com-
mou sense needed by each oi us in
life, we must have a lift toward lofty
things or we shall be lost, individu
ally, and collectively as a nation.
Life is uot easy, and least of all is it
easy for either the man or the na'ion
that aspires to do great deeds. In ! lie

itelv far reaching forces and tenden

all the multiplication of the physical

and our civilization will welcome a

to do as I believe we shall and will
do. if we are to advance iu broad hi I-
manity, in kindliness, iu the spirit of
brotherhood, exactly as we advance iu
our conquest over the hidden forces of
nature, it must lie by developing
strength in virtue aud vinue in

men who shall lie both good and

who scorn wrongdoing, and who at the

the strength to strive mightily for the

to leave all the good tunes to the ser
vice of the devil. He accomplished
so much for mankind aaaanae he also

At this stage of the proceedings
Mayor Burke took up the matter of
his apiK.iutmeuts which the council
bad refused to confirm at the last
meeting. He stated that he realized
that there should be harmony exist
ing between the council aud the mayor
iu order to transact the business of

the taxpayers. This condition he said j
he sincerely wished for. He theu in
formed the members of the council
that he would withdraw the uomiua-

j. .-tions to this nomination aud no
action was taken iu the matter of con-

had evidently lieen anticipated as the
mayor had a private clerk ready and
instructed him to address a communi

The report of the city a or aud
tax collector showed unpaid water
bills for 1H01 to the amount to
J $157.77 ; for 1!2, -lliTr., while no wa-
ter bills h id been collected for the
mouths of January and February of
this year, leaving
the city from thi
nearly 85O0O due
urce. He was
instructed to collect these bills at
once and to shut off water to cousiim
ers who did uot settle as soon as their ;
bills were presented.
The report of the city eugiueer was
quite exhaustive and contained some:
very important if not pleasant, infor-
mat ion. He reported the pipe line'
between Prescott aud Del Rio iu very
bad coudition for about eight miles
aud said it was necessary to keep men
at work along the line continually re- I
pairing the line where the lead joints
were blowing out every day. The res-
ervoir in the city is also in a deplor- 1
able conditiou. it Iteing impossible to j
keep more than about nine feet of wa
ter in it when there should I sixteen
feet. This was on account of leakage.
His report brought out a lengthy!
discussion on the water works prob- (
lem. Mr. Mulvenon. who had lieeii
the chairman of the water committee
in the old council aud who is un
doubtedly the best posted man on the!
water works coudition iu Ih-escott. I
gave the new council some very val-1
uable pointers ou tbe situation. Hei
said in his opinion it would he ueces-
the line could lie relaid for the di
tauce of about five miles where it is
in such bad condition in about ten
days time. But this would cost -e -
eral thousand dollars, itie re.-ervoir
would also have to be repaired and !
enlarged, and it was his experience
that this would cost several more
thousands and then could not be
made to give good satisfaction and he
recommended that m-tead of more
money being spent trying to repair
and enlarge tbe old reservoir that a
million and a half gallou steel tauk
be put in. which would stop the repair
business for many years to come. The
proposed tank would cost $10.ut0 to
$15,000. Another thing, he under
stood it was the intent iou of the gov- :
eminent to statiou at least three com
panies at Whipple iu tbe near future
which would increase the consump- '
tiou of water at the xst to 100.U1;
gallons per day which together with
the rapid growth of the city would
soon demand about U.tH gallons of
water per day. The present .- tpacity
for funrisbiug water is short of ."pUi.ihhi
gallons so it was absolutely necessary
to increase the capacity of the present
plaut. He suggested that au auxil
iary plant he put in near Smith's
lane. This would reduce the pressure
at the Del Rio plant so that the en-
gine could lie speeded up to meet the
required ueeds. and the auxiliary
plant could pump the water into the
city reservoir. These needs, he .le
clare-l were not fancies but faced the
city in fearful reality aud must be
met. The matter of calling aanaaW
election for the issuance of bonds to
meet these needs w is discussed an t
Mulvenon was asked what amount
would lie needed. He replied that it
would take every dollar of K0,000 aud
possibly more to put the water system
in a place where it would meet all de
mands of the city for years to come
and also to extend the sewer out let
to the distance required by the war
for a special bond election, and to
have this report ready to submit to
the council at 3 o'clock this after
noon. After granting H. B. Norris the
privilege of running a lunch wagon
on the streets between the hours of t
o'clock p. m. and 6 o'clock a. m. , the
council adjourned till 3 p.m. today.
