Yesterday's Hyperborean Weather Deci

A Scottish Church Service- -Notes
From the Many Minneapolis
Houses of God.
Yesterday was not an ideal church Sun
day. In most of the churches the array of
empty pews glared menacingly at the pul
pit. Comparatively few were those whose
religious impulses prompted them to brave
the intensely cold weather, and the infer
ence is that the Bible was read in more
Minneapolis houses yesterday than for
many a Sunday. It is a discouraging task
for a minister to grow eloquent before a
congregation of only one-fourth its usual
dimensions, but the promise that '-when
one or two are gathered together in Thy
name. Thou wilt grant their requests," in
spired the men ot God, and the result was
a number of unusually fine sermons. Those
who were unavoidably detained at home
will read with interest the following
Destroy Nothing Until You Fiiid
Something That is Better.
Dr. 11. M. Simmons, of the First Uni
tarian church, preached on the precept,
"Do Not Destroy Anything Till You Have
Something Better to Take its Place." The
first half of the discourse was in defense of
this precept. He said religions growth is
what we want, and only so much destruc
tion as will aid the growth. But he said
every tiling that opposes the growth of
humanity and reverence should be de
stroyed. When a farmer finds a thistle
going 10 seed in his garden, he does not
say. "I must love this till 1 can get a peach
tree and plant there," or when he finds a
rattle-snake on his porch he does not say,
"1 must protect this reptile till I can get a
canary bird and put in its place. He de
stroys both at once, knowing that their
place is better than they are. So those the
ological dogmas which are more detrimental
to reverence than thistles to a field, and
spirit of bigotry and injustice which has
damaged society more than serpents, ought
to be destroyed without delay, for their
room is more religious than they are. And
nature sends better thoughts and sentiments
to take their place, just as she sends her
grass into the cleaned swamp without arti
ficial sowing. Even if we do not have a
perfect system of theology to plant, it is
•well to clear out the dark thickets of
thought, malarious bogs of sentiment, and
let in God's natural life and light. For
light, which is another religious symbol,
tills the universe, and the best way to get it
is to remove what shuts it out. Theology
is too often like a Gothic church with nar
row and stained windows, and where the
preacher stands by his caudles at the alter
on a sunny Sunday and says, "Do not de
stroy our little light till you can get a bet
ter." There is a better waiting outside,
and lighting up a revelation there, too. For
God's revelation is not confined to one
book, but is written everywhere in lasting
skies and living seed, in fair flowers and
fairer faces, in human lives, and loves and
hopes. And whenever any church walls
out all of this requisite revelation, excepts
the Bible, and then read that grand old
book in such dim light as to arrive only at
the gospel of God's wrath and man's de
pravity, then it is better to destroy the
darkness and let in the natural, but not
less divine, light, which is waiting to fill
the temple of religion with sunshine and
MAU FAILURES JN LIFE.
Rev. Van. Andsi Discourses of the
General Want of Devotion*
Rev. Charles A. Van Anda, of the Cen
tenary c-luifeh, preached yesterday morning
from 11. Cor. \ J i., IT-IS. lie said that
many failures in life were caused by want
of devotion. Great labor was the price of
success, and those who would not pay the
price must not expect the prize. Dickens
declared he had no genius except for hard
work. The same law holds in religious
matters. A man fails to live a holy life be
cause he does not fully devote himself to
God. Too many overlook the fact that
God will not allow of any compromise with
sin. Neither property, friends, nor life it
self must come between us and Christ. To
be a follower of Jesus a man must forsake
all that he hath. This condition implies
reformation when conduct is in violation of
God's commandments. This applies to
what many are pleased to wink at as mere
irregularities no less than gross vices. Sin
in the germ i.-. as truly sin as in the ripe
fruit. This separation from sin has refer
ence to a corrupt heart as well as a wicked
life. When the evil dispositions of our
hearts are shown us by the Spirit, and we
refuse to accept Christ as a Savior from
these as well as from guilt, we then become
guilty of inbred sin. When we follow the
Spirit and accept Jesus, God receives us
into His favor and He becomes our father.
This relation insures us first the special love
of God. protection from all evil and an
abundant provision for all necessities. All
that God demands of us is not worth men
tioning when compared with that blessed
portion secured by our compliance.
HEM 1 SOLVES THE PROBLEM.
Rev. Thwiiisr Discourses on the
Daily Christian Life.
Rev. Charles F. Thwing, the pastor of
Plymouth church, preached from John
xvii., 15: "I pray not that thou shouldest
take them out of the world, but that thou
bhouldest keep them from the evil." He
said: The pious life and the secular are
supposed to be foes. The monastic idea
.•■till lives. The pulpit, it is thought, ought
to be holier than the pews. The world is
frequently conceived as so evil that if you
do not get out of it it will get a hold on you.
The problem, therefore, is how to keep the
highest ideals, the deepest Christian faith
in healthy and wholesome relations, how to
be not slothful in business, yet ever serving
the Lord. This problem is not solved by
doing business in a half-hearted way, nor
by lowering the standard of holiness. Help
in the solution of this problem may be had
by (1) transfiguring our worldly interests
through the power of a great affection for
Christ;- (2) by knowing that a high type of
piety permits the doing of the com
mon duties; (".) by knowing that the
performance of life's common duties gives
substance to piety and steadiness to its
progress; and (4) by knowing that God's
regard for our work is measured by its
Christian influence rather fhan by its ma
terial and visible importance. In a word,
the daily life and the Chistian life may be
maintained in a right selection by devotion
to Jesus Christ as the ideal of all living and
the motive for its attainment.
THE TEMI'TATIOS OF JESUS.
Extracts From the Sermon of Rev.
Shutter, Church of the itedceuier.
Rev. M. D. Shutter, of the Church of the
Redeemer, preached from Mark 1-13. Fol
lowing are some extracts from the sermon:
It is only as we transfer the scene from
the desert to the soul that we get any true
idea of this mighty transaction. The out
•ward incidents must be transformed into
spiritual facts. To follow the letter is to
be led into absurdities.
Those who have themselves had strug
gles within can appreciate something of the
nature and power of that conflict. We
anrue backward from ourselves. We inter
pret His temptation under the light of our
own. That wilderness of Judea is in every
heart to-day. In your soul and mine the
wrestling between Christ and satan goes
forever on. We need not explore the Holy
Laud to find exact localities. We need not
speculate about the Mount of Temptation.
Every fact of the moral universe is within
u:j God is there, the tables of the law are
there, and there we still find the seducing
tempter and the resisting Christ.
To every one who is tossed and tempted
conies a voice from that ancient battle fields
"Be of good cheer. I have overcome tiie
world." No storm beats upon our head
that did not break over him; no waves dash
our life-barks that did not heap themselves
around his vessel: no .foe leaps into the
arena that he has not wounded unto the
death, and his conquest lights the battle for
us with the possibility of victory.
We are not the creatures* of circum
stances, nor the products of heredity, nor
the foot-balls of late. We are flung " help
less upon a sea of iniquity to be swept by
resistless billows to certain doom. Each
one has a self-determining and self-direct
ing power, over-ruled uy no iron fate. We
make our own choices. Temptation has
no coercive force. It is solicitation, not
compulsou. It cannot stand before the
aroused majesty of a determined will.
Were it in my power 1 would place
where his influence could no longer be ex-
I erted every corruptor of youth, but I would,
j on the other hand, have every youth know
that it is his business not to be corrupted.
COD'S CALL TO ISEVeKTKIWCE
As Elaborated by Rev. J. J. SSall,
Fret! Simplest I'hurcli.
The theme of Rev. J. J. Hall, First Free
Baptist church, was "God's Call to Re
"The Lord is not slack concerning His
promises as some men count slackness, but
is loug-suffering to us-ward, not willing
j that any should perish, but that all should
J come to repentence." II Peter 3-9.
Mr. Hall said: As the lonely wife
anxiously awaits for the hours to pass away
and the one to hasten in which her husband
will return so did the church in her early
days ardently desire the return to this earth
of the Lord Jesus. As believers expressed j
their convictions they were met with ridi- 1
cule, and the people said: "What are the !
signs of His coming? Behold: all things
remain as they were." To correct erroneous
views concerning the second advent ot our
Lord and to encourage Christians were the
objects of Peter in writing this epistle.
Herein he shows that God never works in a
hurry; that we must not measure God's
eternity by our hour-glass of time, and that i
: objections similar to those offered against I
the return of Jesus Christ and the final j
overthrow of the present state of things j
might have been raised with equal force
asainst the destruction of the world by
water in the days of Noah. We are in
formed that upon approaching a city for
conquest Alexander the Great would have
a great light erected and all who surrendered
while that light was burning had mercy ex
tended them. God is no tyrant, bat' He
knows the direful effects of sin and
warns men in the tenderest manner
possible to come to repentance. He is long
suffering, not willing that any should
perish. "Perish" is a forcible word. It
means destruction. But it includes not
only the result, but the process also; not
only the loss which is total, but that which
is partial, such as '"to mar," to corrupt, to
decay. This is what sin is doing. You
may as weii put a bullet through your brain
and expect to live, as to love evil and con
tinue in sin and promise yourself heaven at
last. God can not look upon this self
destructive work without entreating His
creatures to cease from doing evil, and
learn to do well. He is the source of life
and love, and would bestow the fullest
blessings thereof upon all His children. To
save them from perishing He sent His
only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, into the
world, and Christ has power to save the
soul from perishing, and to restore into it
the glory and image of God Himself. I
look upon an old painting. The work of
time has so injured it that I know not its
value, nor can I discern the subject of the
painting, but a skillful artist takes it in
hand. He not only saves it from further
perishing, but brings back to it its former
beauty. When lo! it is seen to be an
original of a master mind. My hearers,
bring yourselves with all your defects to
Christ, He can bring unto yon pardon,
light, peace, strength and" everlasting
TIIE U'Oi\Di;KFUL REPORT
Concerning- the Coming; of Christ,
Preached by Rev. J. J. Hall.
Rev. 11. Uovey, D. D.. preached in the
Second Congregational church, from Isaiah
38:1: "Who hath believed our report.";
Faith and uubelief are moral opposite*, j
Unbelief has been the great sin of all ages, 1
and it begets all the rest. Men would not
lie, steal and murder, if they believed God's
word. Unbelief is the curse of the world
and the bane of the church. Why do men,
whom we would so gladly see saved, reject
the facts of religion? The ancient prophet
brought such a wonderful report concern
ing the coining of Christ that men would
not believe it. And so now, the remarkable
nature of religious facts is made an objec- !
tion. We are told that God is almighty;
yet men break his laws. He is just, yet
pardons rebels. Merciful, yet mill ions suffer
and die. Wise, yet made this globe on i
which we dwell, knowing that it would be
full of sin, shame and sorrow. Lord of all,
yet makes it a condition of His blessing that
we should bring in tithes. He is immutable.
yet answers prayer. lie is supremely
glorious, yet was made manifest in the flesh
and hung on the cross. lie promises to
give the victory to his church, yet puts in
visible weapons in its hands. He lets the
righteous pass through deep waters and
fiery trials, but assures them that heaven
shall be their final home. Try to demon
strate facts like these by mathematics, and
it will be a failure. But apply experimental
proofs and they will stand the
closest scrutiny. Million's have found the
promises of God true, and declare that the
Chistian faith is a good thins to live by and
blessed to die by. Men take other remark
able statements as a matter of course. Tell
them about a cascade of lire from the towers
of an ice palace: or about an eclipse of the
sun, and they will not think of doubting
what is said. Why will they then push
aside the mighty facts of religion? The
reason is that those facts are at war with
men's prejudices. False convictions get
hold of them and will not let go. One of
these is that God is far off and takes no
particular notice of what they do or say.
No amount of testimony as to divine judg
ments or answers to prayer, seems to satisfy
some people. Many professing Christians
would live better than they do, did they
remember that God sees them. Things above
reason are not necessarily contrary to it
Religion is always harmed by narrow,
bigoted, illiberal notions; and pure reason
should walk hand in hand with pure faith,
for they are sisters. The main reason why
sinners reject religion is because they love
sin. They wish the Bible were false, and
hence they persuade themselves that it is
so. . Errors of the heart are worse than er
rors of the head. Wonderful as the facts
of religion are, they must be taught, and
God will reveal his will to those that love
his service. No good can ever come from
sacrificing the truth at the kidding of pas
sion, prejudice or pride. Repent of known
sin, trust in your crucified Redeemer, and,
in heaven at last, you will forever rejoice
that you believed the wonderful report.

DIRT AND DEPHAvrri
The Essential Elements iv the Cel
ebrated ;'!<ioiicy Divorce Case.
The noted and sensational Mooney di
voice case, begun in the district court be
fore Judge Rea some weeks ago, was con
cluded Saturday afternoon at the law
library parlors, Judge Kea not being able to
hear it at the court house. After the evi
dence was all in the matter was taken
under advisement. Argument will be made
in the case some time this week. The case
has been a most revolting one, and was
extremely sensational in all its details.
Much of the testimony introduced was of a
character totally unfit for publication. This
was especially the case Saturday, when
even a sphinx would have blushed. Nu
merous witnesses swore that they went to
the Mooney farm last summer and there
found Mrs. Mooney at work in the fields,
clad only in a garment made of a bran sack,
with a string tied around the waist. It
was also stated that Mooney frequently
made his wife clean out the stable with her
hands, as he considered shovels an unneces
sary expense. As there were numerous
cows in these stables the work can better be
imagined than described. Three or four
persons who were recently visitors at the
farm were next called to the stand. They
told a story almost too horrible for belief,

exist in a civilized community. These wit
nesses said they found the house entirely
without ventilation, being surrounded by
outbuildings on three sides, and the win
dows on the open side nailed down so that
not a breath of fresh air could enter. A
terrible stench greeted them, they said, and
on investigating they found that* it emana
ted from several large pots of swill, which
Mr. Moouey had gathered and placed on
the stove on which he did his cooking.
This they found was a common practice at
the house, and to cap the climax Mr.
Mooney slept in the same room. It was
further shown that pigs were allowed to
run about the house and sleep under Mr.
Mooney's bed, and in fact a litter of little
pigs was recently born behind the kitchen
stove. Over the kitchen a large Hock of
chickens had their quarters, and
the noise and odor was far from
pleasant. Another witness stated that
on the bed in which Mr. Mooney slept
there were no bed clothes. Three or four
horse-blankets, several old grain sacks and
bundles of rags took their place. These
articles were dirty and emitted a terrible
smell. This bed was occupied jointly by
Mooney and his oldest daughter. 12 years of
age. and from some of the testimony intro
duced it would seem to be a dangerous
place for the child. A large amount of
testimony like the above was introduced
and sworn to be competent.
In her plea for a divorce Mrs. Mooney
asks for alimony and the custody of the two
children, both girls, one G and the other 12
years of age, Mooney denies that he has
any money, but it is generally believed that
he has about $15,000 in money put away
somewhere. The farm is worth about $40,"
--000. •, Mooney was for sixteen years a po
liceman' in 1 the old country. About a year
ago he tried to have his wife sent to the
insane asylum. The case came into the pro
bate court, and was dismissed when a hear
ing was had. He also has-a suit pending
against her in the district court, in which
he asks to have all her interest in the prop
erty set aside. This matter will come up
for hearing some time the present week.
Ancnl the Grand Jury.
The grand ' jury will convene again this
morning, and, unless all rumors are wrong
several indictments of a somewhat sensa
tional:.character will be returned. The
question of indicting the men who rent
rooms in business blocks to women of bad
character has been considered by the jury,
but just whether any further action will be
taken is not known. Said one of the gen
tlemen composing the jury, when ques
tioued in relation to the matter: "There is
nothing that I can say in relation to the
matter any further than that we have con
sidered several of those cases.*' If the
owners of these buildings are indicted there
will be music . in the air, as it is claimed
that no evidence can be produced by the
jury to show, that the women are using the
rooms for immoral purposes. The saloon
men are still uneasy, aud considerable anx
iety is manifested as to the outcome of the
recent indictments. At the meeting held
by the Saloonkeepers' association Saturday
it was decided that all places should be
closed the day following. Sunday. Those
who have been indicted declare' that they
will not plead guilty under any considera

Interesting developments have been

THE HISTORIC DESK.
An Attorney in the Case Talks of
"Hellish Do rail utls For Sloney"
To the Editor of the Globe.
Had Josiah Jones manifested ordinary pru
dence I should not feel called upon to write
this. But inasmuch as he has seen tit to pub
lish a card in your paper in which he assumes
the role of martyr, and ba<ely allud?s to the
"champions" of Jennie Coolin, and to "their
hellish demands for money," "forbearance
cea3es to be a virtue." Hud he paid the girl
her just claim his desk su:d papers never
would have been taken. They were taken
contrary to ray advice, as siie stated frankly
to the court. After her arrest, belioviiur she
meant no crime, 1 volunteered in her behalf,
without expectation 01 reward. Thank God,
whatever other failings 1 may have. lam
ever ready to "champion" the cause of a
poor working: <rirl.
Mr. Jones succeeded in having her inear- I
ccrated iv jail to await the action or the
grand jury. He procured a search warrant
and searched the house of a reputable citizen
on no other evidence 1 than that the desk
was carried off in a sleigh and
he found a place where there were s'eiirli
tracks. He secured the services of regular
and special detectives without securing his
desk. Replevin papers were issued, bur. the
sheriff returned the same "not found." Ho
offered a "liberal reward" iv the papers, but
no one claimed it. He visited the jail with
Detective Doyle and offered to settle with tlio
girl, but she would not settle while charges
were held over her. He spent a day in at
tendance on the grand jury and another in
waiting for her trial, supposing she hud
been indicted. He retained able counsel and
they have labored diligently in his behalf.
He has declared that ho would send the jprl
to Stiilwater or St. Peter, and he didn't care
a damn which, and now, after all bis efforts
and the necessary large outla\s of money, he
tries to make it appear that he '-bus not paid
and will not pay one cent lor their recovery."
If there is a man, woman or child in the
city who believes that Jennie Coulin, after
takinp all tho chances there were
to take, and after she had been discharged
from criminal prosecution, would be apt to
deliver up the desk and papers without beinsr
recompensed — or that I would advise her so to
do — he, she or it can command a good salary
at the dime museum. Yet it is notorious that
the desk and contents are lit the police sta
tion subject to Mr. .lones' order, with no
charges thereon save for expresaagre. If he
did not want them why did he go to so much
trouble to recover them? If he does want
them, and has not paid a cent why does he
not go and get them?
The facts are that there never has been any
"hellish demand lor money." There has
never been a time, except while she was in
jail, when the missing articles could not have
been secured by paying the girl's claim, and
her claim has been for §9.25 for service as a
domestic, and interest thereon lor eleven
years. No demand has ever been made or
suggested for attorney's fees, or for any
other purpose. The girl's cluiiii
has been settled; it was . settled
through me, and she has received every
cent. Not only was no demand ever made,
but the amount paid was proposed by one
acting 1 by the authority of Mr. Jones and was
accepted by me. It is idle for Mr. Jones to
higgle longer about the matter if he does
other witnesses will be put upon the stand.
The item that Mrs. Conlin claims to have re
ceived $200, besides attorneys' fees, is a mis
take; she makes no such claim, but does be
lieve, as do many others, that the fruitless
search for the desk that wus not wanted cost
him that amount.
In conclusion, I have to say that I car.sed
the desk to be left at police headquarters in
accordance with terras of settlement; that if
Mr. Joues fails to take it away soon— being
in the way — 1 will conclude that he means
what he says in refusing to accept it. and see
that it is returned to where I got it, to be re
tained until called lor. And after so return
ing- it I shall have nothing further to do wltn
the matter. "A word to the wise is sufficient."

Now that Col. Hicks has been promised the
judgeship, under certain conditions, it is
amusing to recall his pronunciamento at the
conference at which Judge Bea was nomi
nated. The Democrats unanimously ac
quiesced in the nomination, for the purpose
of keeping- the judiciary out of politics, but
at the same time it was suggested that if a
fourth judge be appointed it should be a
Democrat. CoL Hiaks spoke for tho Repub
licans in reply, and agreed to this, adding':
"And if the Democrats shall name such a
man as that honored Democrat [Loehren] now
on the bench, I pledge myself to secure the
unanimous acquiescence of the Republican
members of ■ the bar." This was at the Al
gonquin club rooms last fait. And yet Co!,
Hicks is now seeking that very position.
It seems the legal firm of Cross, Hicks &
Cnrieton is to be well provided for at the pub
lic crib, and it will be a "proud" day when
every member holds down an office. Capt. .1 .
M. Cross is city attorney and F. H. Carl ''ton
is assistant city attorney. Col. H. G. Hicks
has been promised a judgeship, limited by
conditions. There was a move to nominate
him for county attorney, but Col. F. F. Davis
nipped that in the bud. If there are any
loose legal students in that office, now is the
time for them to form clubs aud name their
choice of offices.
John Norton, the coal dealer, cornea back
at Rufus Roberts, the man who made com
plaint against him, and cleans him out very
thoroughly. Norton has won the first step in
the suit, and in relation to the remainder only
asks the public to suspend judgment until all
the facts come out. He has written a letter
to the Globe In which he claims to be the
victim of a conspiracy organized by the man
ager of a furl company which he several
times beat in securing city contracts. Roberts,
he said, is merely the minion of this fuel
company, and he refers to Roberts as the ex
dog-catcher and charges him with dishonest
practices in ..be coal line. Norton is an old
citizen and has once and again fulfilled va

It is reported that the names of Charles M.

A great many people do not know that the
mention of the name of Al Sc- liefer as alder
man from the Sixth ward is merely a joke. It
is just such a joke as Col. Glean perpetrated
at the last county convention. On the ballot
for sheriff 13V votes were cast, of which
Schefer received 6 and Swcnson 151. When
this was told by the tellers to Col. Glenn, be
said: "Well, now Al is a pretty good fellow,
and we'll encourage him a little. Don't give
this away." Going to the front he announced :
"Whole number of votes cast 157, of which j

were east in the township, each one being-
