LINCOLN A SECOND MOSES.
SO SAYS JUDGE M'DOUGAL, ADDRESS
ING GRAND ARMY I0STS.
Anniversary of the 3Iartyr President's
Birth Fhtlnsly Observed In Kan
sas City Professor Green
Trood Talks ot Lincoln.
Tho eighty-eighth anniversary of the
birth of Abraham Lincoln was celebrated
last night by the Grand Army posts at
Strope'a hall. Ninth and Wyandotte
streets. At tho Temple, corner of Elev
enth and Oak streets. Rabbi Schulman de
livered an address on thevllfe and charac
ter of Lincoln.
Strope's hall was filled to overflowing
with members of the McPherson, George
H. Thomas and Farragut posts. Slany
members of the ex-Confederates associa
tion, and colored people were also pres
ent. J. W. Jenkins presided. He was In
troduced by .Major Ross Guffln, who called
the assemblage to order. Judge Jenkins
used a gavel mado from a tree which
sheltered the cabin In which Abraham Lin
coln was born in Hardin, county, Ky.
During tho celebration the following reso
lution of sympathy for General Shelby was
adopted by a rising vote:
"The Grand Army posts of Kansas City
and a largo assembly of their friends, In
open meeting assembled, on this, the an
niversay of the birth of Abraham Lincoln,
desire to express our sympathy for the
gallant, courageous and generous General
Jo O. Shelby and those who are now and
have for many days past been, gathered
In tearful anxiety about the bedside of
that grand old hero, and we hope his life
may be spared for many years to bless his
home and country."
After a song by Captain "W. F. Henry,
Superintendent J. M. Greenwood recounted
a number of very Interesting reminiscences
of Lincoln. Professor Greenwood's father
was an Intimate personal friend of Lin
coln and Professor Greenwood himself oft
en saw tho great emancipator In Spring
Held, 111. Professor Greenwood told many
interesting and quaint stcrles of Lincoln
as he appeared between the years 1S47 and
Professor W. II. Lelb sang a, song, after
which Judge H. C. SIcDougal, city coun
selor, delivered an address on the subject:
"Egyptian and American Slavery, a Com
parison; Moses and Lincoln, a Parallel."
Judge McDougal gave an extended history
of both Egyptian and American slavery,
declaring that the latter was a hundred
fold more galling than the bondage of the
children of Israel.
In his opening remarks Judge McDougal
said that the prayers of the Union soldiers
went up for the recovery of General Jo O.
Shelby. In comparing Moses and Lincoln
Judge McDougal said, among other things:
"Some of those who should have been
ir.cst loyal, earnest and zealous in their
surport of Moses, often murmured, com
plained and even revolted against tho
great lawgiver. So with Lincoln. 'In tnat
fierce light which beats upon a throne,'
the central figure of the war stood amid
a shower of envious shafts, heard tho cruel
criticism and the curses of enemies North
and South, at home and abroad, yet
through all remained he, like a god of old,
calm, unmoved and immovable.
"Our war was u mighty cataract poured
out of heaven In answer to the human
cry for justice and freedom. Its waters
ciimsoned with a nation's blood of atone
ment; the colossal shadow of Lincoln was
cast athwart its every part. The only
American who upon the Instant compre
hended every proposition relating to war
and freedom, he was long reviled for his
silence and Inaction; yet when, at the right
moment, through his immortal emancipa
tion, he did speak, the world heard, and
no words spoken in all history have prov
en so potential for good, or have so calmed
the waters' of discontent, since upon ths
troubled sea of Galilee the Master stood
forth and said: 'Peace, be still.'
"Like Moses, Lincoln was permitted to
view the promised land; Le had surren
dered, the war was nearing its close; with
his prophetic eye he saw In tho near fut
ure the old flag floating free from sea to
sea; saw the Union saved and restored;
saw the shackles of every American slave
lying broken at his feet: but the splendid
army of Johnston and tho Armv of the
Southwest were still in the field. But. like
Moses. Lincoln was not permitted to set
foot in that land of perfect freedom for
which his sad soul yearned. For each' It
was only a little way off just across tho

and In poverty; so was Lincoln. Yet in his
own country and among his own people,
each attained the highest station. AVhen
Moses died, "his eye was not dim, nor his
natural force abated," and the same was
true of Lincoln. From the standpoint of
the human, each seems to have been called

to rise as high as he did: enabled him to

What Was it? It was. fn,one word, char

in my opinion. He did justice and he loved
mercy. 111s heart went out to pain and
suffering. He walked In humility with
God. He had that deep religion of the
heart and of the conscience. As, to any
other kind of religion, it must be said that
Lincoln had not. Mr. Lincoln could in nn

a tendency to-day to denounce politicians.

What has all tho earmarks of a scheme
to swindle working glris out of various
sums of money camo to light yesterday
when Barbara Norris, a young girl, of 522
Campbell street, swore out a warrant In
Justice Krueger's court, charging Mrs. M.
J. Williams, of 16.. East Twelfth street,
with obtaining money under false pretenses.
Miss Norris said that she was only one of
about'twenty-five girls who had been swin
dled out of sums ranging from $4 to $23.
A few weeks ago Miss Norris read an ad
vertisement in a paper to the effect that
"ladies can secure permanent and remun
erative work by calling on Mrs. M. J. Will
iams, 1G4 East Twelfth street." She went
to that number and was told that if she
would pay $1 for a certain number of Ics
sons in fancy embroidery work she could
make big wages by selling her work, after
finishing one piece, to Mrs. Williams, the
instructor. She paid the money and en
tered upon the course of lessons. She says
she was given just half as many lessons
as was agreed upon, and instead of being
furnished the material free, as Mrs. Will
iams had promised her, she had to pay for
all material she used. Mrs. Williams had
a class of nearly thirty girls, who had paid
$1 and $5 each, according to the number of
lessons they were to receive. Besides the
fee for the lessons Mrs. Williams required
from each of the girls, according to Miss
Norris, sums ranging from 50 cents to Jl
for material to work upon. When the girls
had each finished' one piece of work, In
stead of buying It and "thus give the les
sons practically free," as she had promised.
Miss Norris says she told them to wait a
few days until she had secured the cus
tomers .for them. During the past week
Miss" Norris says the" girls received no les
sons from Mrs. Williams, who claimed that
she would resume her class as soon as she
could secure customers for their work.
About tho middle' of last week Miss Nor
ris told Mrs. Williams that she would have
to secure employment, as she wanted to
help her father, who is a mechanic, sup
port tho family. Mrs. Williams told her
that, she would tako her into Diirtnershlii
with her and give her halt tho Income re
ceived from giving lessons and selling the
cmbioldery made by the girls. She was to
par half the rent and elve 125 for her hair
of the "concern," which included as stock
in trade "the exclusive right to give les
sons in fancy embroidery work in Kansas
City. Mo and Kansas City. ICas." MUs
Noirls had no money, but, under the prom
ises of securing half of the Income from
teaching the lessons, she pawned her gold
watch, which had been given her by her
father several years ago, for $20. She
paid Mrs. Williams the money, and was
told .that sho could pay the balance when
she was able. She also borrowed money to
nav hnr hnlf nf Thn rpnt. nt lfilt Knj?r

A few days ago she learned that Mrs.

and each was to raise the money to "buy

It transpired yesterday that Curtis Wal

whose true name is Peacock, went to no-
Iico headquarters yesterday after seeing
the account of the alleged holdun in the
morning papers, and denied having tele
phoned In the report that he had been held
up. Ho told Inspector Flahive that Thurs
day evening Ed Dougherty, a friend, re
ceived $6 from his father to pay rent. Tho
money was to be paid to Peacock's mother,
Mrs. Waller, who Is married a second time,
but Instead of doing this, Do'gherty took
Peacock out for a good time, spent the
money, and then telephoned the police the
holdup story to make it appear that ho
had paid Peacock tho money and then the
footpads got It. Tho police did not be
