A Former Newberrian Returns After
Twenty-Five Years ---An
Elo iu?t Pr::. e-.
The Lutheran Church of the Re
demer was crowded yesterday morn
ing by an attentive audience. who
heard a strong address from Rev.
Luther M. Kuhns, general secretary of
the Luther League of America. The
pastor. Rev. W. L. Seabrook, con
ducted the liturgical service, and read
a letter of greeting from Mr. W. C.
Stoever, of Philadelphia, president of
Mr. Kuhns spoke as a Lutheran to
a Lutheran audience, of the greal
part taken by that branch of the
church in the history of otfr country;
of the persecutions endured for their
faith by the early Lutheran settlers;
of the massacre of the Huguenots in
Florida. in the sixteenth century, who
were slain." not as Frenchmen., but
as Lutherans:" of the loyalty of Luth.
erans in the revolution and of the
part played by pastor General Peter
Muhlenburg and his Lutheran sol
diers in the war for independence; of
the great host of L4theran immi
grants that have come to the coun
try in recent years; of the fact that
in eight of our principle cities the
Lutherans number more than all the
other protestant churches combined;
of the continued immigration to this
country of Lutherans, many of whom
are finding their way to the south; of
the great duty of every member of
the church as a patriotic citizen to
be active in the work of the church.
He spoke of the Luther League as
not a childrens' organization but as
an organization of the laymen and
lay-women of the church, at work
for God and the helping of their fel
low-men. He said that the Luther
League of America was organized at
a convention of young peoples' so
cieties of the Lutheran church, held
at Pittsburg, Penn., October 25, 1895,
with a present membership of 40,000,
of which number five thousand were
added during the past two years. He
said that the work of the league is
spiritual, social and educational, and
made an earnest plea for the organi
zation of a league in connection with
the Church cf the Redeemer.
Mr. Kuhns preached at the service
last night, from Ephesians 3:19, "That
ye might be filled with the fullness of
God." A strong, logical and elo
:uent speaker, he held the close at
tention of a large audience through
ut the entire sermon.
At the close of the night service
the pastor and the officers of the
:hurch held a meeting for conference
with Secretary Kuhns, and it was de
:ided to organize a Luther League in
the congregation. The members of
the church who are willing to join it
ar requested to give their names to
the pastor or any officer of the church

meeting preliminary to organization
will be held on Wednesday night,
