• A class of thirty-eight boys and
girls received the sacrament yesterday
morning at the annual confirmation
exercises of the First Swedish Luther-
an Evangelical church.corner of Wood-
ward avenue and John street. The
congregation, one of the largest in
the city, was joined by many strangers,
and every pew and every aisle was
filled. Nearly 2,000 persons were pres
ent. The church was decorated with
palms, potted plants and cut flowers.
The choir of twenty was led by Prof.
Wold, while Peter Johnson presided
at the organ. The candidates for c:n-
frrmation included 16 boys and 22 girls,
all "about fourteen or fifteen years of
age. The boys were attired in black,
and the girls wore pretty gowns of
delicate white fabrics, with corsage
bouquets. The class sat in a circle
about the pulpit. The services thai
followed were conducted in Swedish
After a hymn by the entire congre
gation the pastor, Rev. L. A. John-
ston, read the twenty-sixth chapter of
the Song of Solomon, beginning,
"Judge me, O Lord, for I have walked
in mine integrity."
The confirmation class next rose to
their feet and replied in unison to the
pastor's questions upon the Lutheran
catechism. Their answers came read-
ily, for during the past six months
they have been receiving weekly in-
struction in the catechism and collat
eral Bible history. Before any child
can ba confirmed in the Lutheran
church he must be able to both read
and write. Thus it is that so few
Scandinavian immigrants to America
are ever found illiterate. Six of the
thirty-eight children examined yester-
day, although Swedish, had become
such good Americans that they were
not proficient in their fathers' tongue.
They gave their answers in English,
and were examined individually.
A hymn was sung by the choir. Still
standing, the class was next con-
firmed. They were asked if they un-
derstood the nature of the renounce
ment that they must make, and of the
burdens they must assume. They were
- agreed. to take up the duties of the
true Christian. They knelt and the
pastor prayed for and with them. Then
he led the congregation in a prayer
for the children, that the latter might
be sustained in the sacrifice that they
had taken upon themselves. While all
remained upon their knees the pastor
stretched forth his hands and invoked
the benediction, saying:, "Herren wal-
signe eder. oeh beware eder: Herren
upplysfe sitt ansigte ofwer eder, och
ware eder nadig: Herren wande sitt
ansigte till eder, och gifwe eder en
ewig frid, i Guds, Fadrens och Sonons
: och helige Andes, namen. Amen." —
"The Lord bless thee and keep thee.
The Lord make His face shine upon
thee, and be gracious unto thee. The
Lord lift His countenance upon thee,
and give thee peace."
Each member of the class was here-
upon presented with a copy of the
Bible and with a book of holy reading.
The latter was a present from the pas-
tor, and its contents were of a nature
peculiarly suited to the situation of
one newly confirmed.
Following a hymn sung by the whole
congregation, the pastor delivered a
brief sermon upon the text from Mat-
thew xi., 28, 29: "Come unto me all ye
that labor and are heavy laden, and I
•- will give you rest: take my yoke upon
you and learn of me, for I am meek
and lowly in heart, and ye shall find
rest unto your souls." . 7 ",'•?'.
Mr. Johnston spoke of the Import-
ance of the time spent in the confirma
tion school; and then, dividing his
text into three divisions, based upon
the words, "come," "take" and "find,"
he continued: I
"Consider the word 'come.' There
are three ways by which you can
come to Christ. First, there is the
Word of God, which points out the
path. Second, . there is self-examina
tion. Peering down into our souls, we
can detect the impediments to a per-
feet communion with the Savior. Once
discovered, they may be removed by
conscientious and continued - effort.
Third, there is the path of humble
prayer. What one cannot do by his
own unaided efforts, he can usually
accomplish with the aid of the Father.
"Consider the word 'take.' You
should take Christ as your teacher, as
your Savior, and as your King. Take
the yoke of His doctrine, the yoke of
obedience, and the yoke of confession.
To take the yoke of Christ is to oast
away the yoke of pride, of penurious-
ness, of v.-crldliness. You * will find
that it will cost you something to take
up the yoke of Christ, but it will cost
still more to take up the yoke of sin.
"And what ■* as to 'find?' You will
find peace for your souls. How great
. is this promise, and how infinite its
blessing! The cares of business, of do-
mestic life, the sorrow and pain of ill-
ness, and the heart-breaks of bereave-
ment—these, all these are to be soft-
ened and obliterated, for to your souls
Is promised peace, and that, by the
Prince of Peace, the Savior, the Com-
The confirmation class sang a
beautiful song setting forth the safety
of the refuge that they had just found
within the "church. Then, as they
kneeled in a circle about him, they re
| ceived from the pastor their first sac-
rament. He placed in the mouth of
each the consecrated wafer, and, re-
turning, he gave to each the sacred
wine to drink. .'.•.'. vy,?: -7

cellent quality. Francis Jenkins gave
some comic songs in full costume, a

the house, and kept ths singer on his
feet. R. D. Saplne rendered two or
three ballads in splendid voice, and met
with a hearty encore. Mr. Convery, a
member of Webster, also assisted ably,
while Brother Sam Whitney gave his
experiences in a recitation, showing
how he accumulated much gold in Cal
ifornia, how he lost it, and acquired in
its stead a great thirst— for more!

Fatalities on La Dourgogne—
Steamer in Distress.
NEW YORK, June 2.— The French
line steamer La Bourgogne, Capt.
Leboeuf, from Havre May 25, came in-
to port this morning with all her flags
at half-mast on account of the death
of Secretary Gresham. Her officers
reported two accidents during the voy-
age. Shortly before the . Bourgogne
sailed from Havre two saloon cabin
passengers came on board. Their
names do not appear on the ship's
printed passenger list. Both were
young men named -Lawrence. On the
morning of the 27th John Lawrence,
aged twenty-six, was promenading the
saloon deck on the port side. . He
leaned over the rail and his hat fell
overboard. In attempting to regain it
he lost his balance and fell into the
sea. An alarm was given and the ship's
engines were stopped. A boat, was
lowered and proceeded in search the
man, but he was never seen again.
He probably got foul of the propeller.
j and was killed. The accident cast a
gloom over the saloon passengers dur-
ing the remainder of the voyage. Mr.
Lawrence's brother would not see .any-
one on his arrival at quarantine.., His
fellow passengers stated that he was
greatly grieved over the loss of his
brother. Flushing, ' L. 1., is believed
to be the home of the young man.
The loss of Mr. Lawrence was soon
followed by another fatality. On the
morning of May 31 a seaman named
August Guillard, while attending to
his duties on the hurricane deck, fell
from the rail." The cry, "Man over
board," was promptly given by. a pas
senger to the officer on the bridge.
The engines were again stopped, and
a lifeboat was quickly manned and
lowered. Every effort was made to
locate the man, but nothing of him
was seen except his cap, which was
picked up by one of the boat's crew.
For the third \ time La Bourgogne
was stopped on the Ist inst. at 7:40 p.
m., when off the Davis South Shoal
(Nantucket), the lookout having sight
ed a steamer flying signals of distress.
The course of the steamship .was im
mediately altered and she bore down
to the vessel, which was found to be
the British steamship ; Enchantress,
Capt. Ritchie, from Mediterranean
ports for New York. .7 The . captain . re
ported that the cylinder head was
broken, and that the 7 accident^ which
was beyond repair, happened in the
early, morning hours. 7? He requested
the commander lot' the La Bourgogne
to send Immediate assistance on reach
ing port.' The disabled steamer was in
no' danger. She had her sails set, and
was heading to the southward, -with a
light breeze, from •south-southwest.
The' Enchantress sailed "■ from "Triste
April 26, : via Palermo, May 10. ". She

ELDER FIFIELD, OF THE AD-
VENTISTS DENOUNCES «-*
'.yy PAGAN IDEA."
RECONCILE MAN TO GOD,
SAYS HE, RATHER THAN AT-
TEMPT TO RECONCILE GOD ;
; TO MAN.
MAN, THE MASTER CREATION,
Was Dr. Paulson's Subject—
eral Strong; Sermons by Oth-

"And almost all things are by the
law purged with blood; and without
shedding of blood is no remission"
were the words of the text an
nounced by Elder Fifield at the Ad
ventists' camp yesterday at 10:30 a.
m. The speaker protested against the
Pagan idea that has become well-nigh
universal, viz.: That Christ died to
reconcile the Father to us. The re
ligious world today, with but few ex
ceptions, teaches that God was very
angry with us because of sin, and but
for the intercession of His Son, would
have destroyed man, whereas, in
truth, "God so loved the world that
He gave His only begotten Son that
whosoever believed in Him should
not perish, but have everlasting life."
The sufferings and death of Christ
were not a manifestation of the wrath
of God, but rather an amazing illus
tration of His infinite boundless love
for fallen man. Says Jesus: - "The
Father loveth you." God does not
need to be reconciled to us, for His
great loving heart yearns for His
erring children. But we need to be
"reconciled to God." -And this 'is
done for us "by the death of His Son"
when we are crucified with Him. We
must be "crucified with Him" not be
cause God is angry with us and wants
to kill us, but because He loves us,
and wants us to live eternally. Monk
ery separates itself from the world
and isolates itself in convents
and monasteries, for fear of contam
ination, seeking thus to become holy,
and so miserably fails that Draper
says that "the degree of degradation
from the dignity of a man became the
measure of the merit of the monk."
But Christ left the shining courts
of heaven where all was glory, peace,
righteousness and joy, with no dan
ger or possibility of contamination,
and descended into this dark world
reeking with sin and pollution, to up
lift and save poor, degraded, fallen
man. And true Christianity does the
same thing now. It seeks the lost,
the fallen and the outcast "for by so
doing, thou shalt both save thyself
and them that hear thee." **/' ;'_*
. MAN THE MASTERPIECE.
At 2:30 p. m. Dr. Paulson continued
his series of lessons, taking as his sub
ject "Man, the Masterpiece of the Cre
ation of God." Man, as he came from
the hand of his Creator, was symmet
rical, beautiful and faultless in form,
and perfect In his entire . being-^the
Image and the likeness ..of God, and
notwithstanding' the ravages ,; that
centuries of violation of the laws of
his being have wrought, he yet stands
forth as the crowning work of the
Great Creator. The marvelous work
of God is nowhere more wonderfully
displayed than. In the human body.
The Psalmist truly says, "I am fear
fully and wonderfully made; great and
marvelous are Thy works." .., ,
At 4 p. m., after an intermission of
only a few minutes, the services were
continued,- with Elder Shultz, of Ne
braska, in the desk. "Thou Shalt Love
Thy Neighbor as Thyself," were the
words of his text. ' Love is the very
atmosphere of heaven. Love is the
principle that actuates the sinless
dwellers there, "God is love," and His
every act is but the outworking of this
attribute of His nature. To be like
Himself is God's requirement of man. .
God wants our love, and so He first
loves us, thus begetting in our hearts
love for Himself, for love is of God.
How may we learn to love God? Not
by trying as many are doing. How
does one learn to love his father,
mother, husband, wife, brother or sis
ter? By trying? No! To know them
is to love them. So it is with God.
To know Him is to love Him. "Ac
quaint now thyself with Him and be
at peace." JlS'Sy
But how may one love his neighbor,
who may be absolutely depraved and
utterly unlovable? How may one love
his enemies? Not by trying, but,
rather, by receiving into the heart
Him who does love His enemies— Jesus
Christ, the friend and lover of sinners.
was the subject of Elder Flfleld's dis
course at 7:30 p. m. "Proclaim liberty
throughout all the land, unto all the
Inhabitants thereof" (Lev. 25, 10), were
the thrilling, inspiring and appropriate
words of his text. -After, paying a
touching and eloquent tribute to the
emblem of American freedom and lib
erty, and the noble men who gave it to
the breeze, and who have kept It
waving by many a hard-fought and .
dearly-won battle, he proceeded to de
fine the terms, "Liberty and freedom."
He briefly sketched the terrible exper
iences by which our ancestors learned
what freedom and liberty really are,
and how to appreciate and prize them.
Liberty embraces the right to worship, j
or not to worship, the true God or any
false god. The framers of the consti
tution recognized this inherent right of
man, and prohibited congress from
legislating on religious matters.

Frank Woodward, alias Tefft, Hil
ton, Tilton, and half a dozen other
names, is still held a prisoner at Cm
cinnati police headquarters. He is act
ing badly, according to reports from
Cincinnati, no doubt feeling that there
are enough charges hanging over him,
and all in shape to be brought home,
to keep him in prison until long after
a ' new century dawns.
:: Immediately. after being arrested as
stated in the Globe of Friday (ex
clusively), Woodward . assumed a -
surly manner and has been as dis
agreeable as a man in his circum-
stances can be. He sits in his cell
with his head down and hat pulled
over "his eyes. The police say he- is
the meanest-looking fellow that has
been locked up in many a day. He '
refuses to talk to any one. He was
before Chief " Deltsch Friday morning,
but he would not say a word.
It is evident that the gang of which
he is a member expected to get in its
work good and strong, because other
"business letters" have turned up. ..
Samuel' Wells, of Wells & Co., No. 67
Vine street, called at police headquar- ,
ters and said that he was to have been •
one of the victims. He said that on
May 18 he received the following letter:
"Chicago, May 17, 1895.
"Samuel Wells & Co.: You have evl- j
dently heard of country editors. taking
cordwood for subscription. I am an.
M. D., and have taken thirty-seven
pounds of goosefeathers for profes- :
sional services. Would like to sell
them if you will pay a reasonable
price. Truly yours, !
"G. B. B. ELLIOTT."
Wells answered the letter. . A few .
days later another letter was received
containing a money order for $12. This
was followed by another letter, saying ■
that the order had been sent by mis-
take, and to please mall check for the
amount. Wells did so, and a few days
ago a young man walked into the
store and had the check cashed. Wells \
saw." Woodward, and thinks he is the
man who was In the store.
The police are now of the opinion
that one man did the forging, and that
"Dr. Elliott" is the man. Woodward
is simply the man who was to pass the
checks, or, as they are called in police *
circles, the "layer down." ;
Another intended victim was the firm,
of Joseph. Maguire & Co., dealers in
tailors' trimmings to Cincinnati. The
other day a well-dressed man called at
the store and introduced himself as:
Dr. Elliott, of the Orphans' Home. He
looked at some goods, and then pulled
out a money ; order and asked J. P.
Carbery if he would not give him a..
check for it, as he did not want to go j
to • the postoffice.- Carbery gave *-' him 7
cash > instead-; of ;• the j check, and the 1

large audience of attentive and in
terested listeners, by the president, Dr.
George H. Bridgman. The chapel was
elegantly decorated and the pulpit was
occupied by the faculty and honored
guests, among them. the venerable Dr.
Brooks, who led in prayer. ;,7', ?
i The theme of the sermon. was self
renunciation, the law of self-preserva
tion, and the secret of usefulness. The
text was from John, 12:24, "Except a
grain of wheat fall into the ground
and die it remaineth alone, but if it
die it bringeth forth much- fruit." -> 7 7-
"These words,", said the preacher,
"seem to have been a quotation from
the Greek philosopher of that day. It
is always of the greatest -importance
to be conversant with the environ
ments of the Savior when we wish to
ponder on His sayings. On one of
the few gala days of His life on earth;
when the multitude crowded around
Him and sang hosannas. His disciples
informed Him that certain Greeks
were seeking Him. Jesus, in making
Himself known to them, did so in lan
guage familiar to them. Thus bring
ing Himself to the region of their own
belief, He could place His great life
in the midst Of their great thinkings.
It is a comforting thought that Jesus
should thus come to the thoughts and
life of all classes of people.
The Savior compares Himself to the
grain of wheat. His humiliation, suf
ferings, and death . He likens to the
grain sown. in the ground, which de
composes and brings forth abundant
fruit. He would teach that for us the
law of spiritual life and power and
fruition is the same. "If a man choose
to come after 'Me let him deny himself
and. take -up hi 3 cross and follow Me:
for whosoever shall choose to save him
self, shall lose himself for My sake,
shall find himself."- In other words,
as another has said, Christ would have
us understand, that while: the- most
glorious consequences for. Himself and
others would come from abjuring, His
own will in favor of that of His Father,
like tremendous issues hang upon our
refusal, or consent to tread in His
steps. ;,The world's great need today

who are willing to make sacrifices-

We have- plenty today who can spin
fine theories about ethics, and far too

"My rights and your duties" -must be
changed before men get the blessings
that are desirable for humanity's chil

and your duties, but rather my duties
and your rights. Secular history? is
full of illustrations in point. The con-
quering nations have always -been
those recognizing this law of sacrifice,
and the pages of Christian history are
covered with - the najnes of men : and
.women who counted not their lives
dear ,unto themselves that thus they
might be workers together with God
and instuments in His hands in the
salvation of their fellow men.
To give one's life for his fellow
men Is not necessarily to die for- them,
but to be willing to die if need be. -
-Those noble veterans who lived
through the civil war, and who still

AS MAN AND WIFE
They Entered Prison, but Leave
It to Slurry Other People.
COLUMBUS, 0., June 2.— Luther A.
Stephens, a counterfeiter, has been re-
leased from the penitentiary under
somewhat romantic circumstances.
With his wife, he was brought to the
penitentiary Jan. 28, 1892, from Ala-
bama. He was sentenced to five years,
while his wife received one year for
complicity In his crime. After Mrs.
Stephens was released, by the expira
tion of her sentence, she called fre
quently upon her husband, and the
pair seemed very affectionate. She
told the officials that she was remain-
ing in Columbus, so as to be near her
husband during the remainder of his
Incarceration. About a year ago Mrs.
Stephens ceased her visits. It was as-
certained by her husband that she had
become Infatuated with another man.
Finally she paid another visit to Ste
phens and told him she intended to se-
cure a divorce. This was an easy mat-
ter, inasmuch as the fact that her
husband was a convict was sufficient
grounds. She married again soon after
securing a divorce. In the meantime
Stephens opened up a correspondence
with an old flame in Alabama, who is
a woman of considerable wealth, and
he is to marry her as soon as he ar-
rives at his old home. ■-*' •*,""

place of execution. It was soon found.
In the rear of Horst's house stands a
large tree with
A CONVENIENT LIMB
at the proper height. The negro was
dragged towards the tree and the rope
was hastily thrown over the limb.
There was no opportunity for prayer.
It is doubtful if the negro would have
taken advantage of it anyway. He
was too scared to pray. He had no
time to pray. He was too busy think-
ing. In an instant more half a dozen
pairs of hands grasped the slack end
of the rope and Osborne dangled In the
air. His body began to twitch convul
sively. At this instant a woman fell
on her kneas and pleaded with the
men to spare the fellow's life. Re-
luctantly the men listened, and then
lowered the half-dead negro to the
ground. He suffered a dozen deaths In
that brief instant he dangled around
In the atmosphere. When he was able
to stand he was tied securely and led
down the middle of the road to the
Rondo station and given into the hands
■of Capt. Lowell. When Ketchell and
Mr. Thompson had related the affair,
Capt. Lowell got Osborne in his pri
vate office and ran him down the in-
terrogation line. Tha fellow was thin
and wiry, and stands apparently at
five feet ten Inches and weighs 150
•pounds. He was dressed .in a dirty
pair of overalls . and a ragged blus
shirt. He had two coats on before
he started on that mad run over the
fields, but shed them en route. He
admitted plainly to Capt. Lowell and
the Globe that he had entered the
- house for the purpose of assault, and
denied- any other intention. He had
not recovered from his fright, and was
very nervous and fidgety while being
questioned. -No firearms or knives
i were found *-■- upon his person. The
marks of the rope were still • plainly
visible on his throat" and wrists, and
he rubbad his neck carefully while he
stcod there. There was the faintest
shadow of a smile on his face when
Ire turned to the Globe reporter,
.who asked him if his neck worried him.
' He talked in good English and had
very little of the dialect of the South-
crn negro. He said he had come from
Tennessee, and had served time in
the state's prison there

"What was your business?" asked

."What! Did you wait on the table
with those clothes?" asked Capt.
Lowell, pointing to his dirty overalls
and torn shirt.
"I tent mah best clothes to Chicago,"
he answered, glibly," "an' was a tryin'
ter get money enough te.r follow 'em."
When told that he was lying he only
grinned and said nothing. He said
; he had been in Minnesota for about
five weeks, but this was his first day in
St. Paul. During Saturday night, he
said, he had slept in a vacant house
near the scene of his attempted crime,
and was walking in to the city to ob-
tain breakfast when the little cottage
caught his eye and the idea of entering
it entered his head.
"You are a bold kind of a villain,"
said the captain. The negro only
smiled. - He was led back to his cell.
He tells an untruth when he says yes-
terday was his first day in St. Paul.
Emmett Thompson, the fifteen-year-
I old son, of A. M. Thompson, saw the
j negro hanging around the neighbor
| hood on Friday and Saturday. He had
! been seen by others in that neighbor
j hood, and undoubtedly acquainted
i himself with the habits and movements
of the Ketchell sisters. The way he
went at his attempted crime is proof
sufficient of that.
On his person Capt. Lowell found a
t bunch of keys with a skeleton key at-
I tached; a black skull cap and a pair
of raised eyeglasses, or goggles, often
used for a disguise. He is medium
black in color, has a smooth face,- is
I tall and angular and very glib. with
his tongue. He is a badly frightened
man, in spite of his assumption -of
good humor and sang froid. He ran. all
of a mile and a half before he was
caught. Ketchell's feet were somewhat
cut and torn, but he says he can stand
it. -.- ?yy/-?

Bethlehem church, at the corner of
Bethlehem church, at the corner of
Pleasant avenue and Ramsey street,
last evening was filled to the doors,
not only with parishioners and friends,
but also with a large number of mem-
bers, of socialistic societies and others
interested in the social question. Rev.
Niclaus Bolt's sermon was well ad-
vertised, throughout the city, and in
deed if eloquence counts for anything
the young minister exceeded all his
previous efforts. He no doubt has de-
voted much of his time to the study
of the socialistic problems; he is deep
ly interested in the welfare and the
future of the workingmen; his words
are of consolation and of solace to
them, and therefore, it is decidedly
interesting to listen to one of his talks
of the present position of those who
earn their livelihood by the sweat of
Last evening's sermon, "Socialism
In the Fervor of a Pentecostal Spirit,"
was based on the text. Acts ii., 44 and
45, "And sold their possessions, ids.
and parted them to all men as every
man had need." He said:
"Pentecost, this grand day, is the
birthday of the Christian church.
Jesus came to kindle the fire of Chris
tianity, and on this day succeeded in
his purpose. The entire Christian
world celebrates today that sublime
anniversary. The power and the Holy
Ghost descended unto the disciples,
and mark the result; it is truly won
derful. In the aomplishments sub-
sequently only can the power which
came among those simple, humble
men be known. One of the

we can readily recognize in the text.
When we follow tlje origin of the
church we cannot fall to perceive in
wonderful beauty the pentecostal con
gregation. It is a natural event. The
more thoughtfulness there is expended
on the subject the more realistic does
it appear before our eyes."
Rev. Bolt at great length discussed
the periods which have elapsed be-
tween the birthday of the Christian era
and the reformation; the achievements
of Christianity in a social way; the
work of Martin Luther, in the direc
tion of reforming the standing of re
ligion and its relation to socialism,
until our own time. He feared that
the importance of this question had
little; if ever, occupied the minds of
thinkers until about twenty years
ago. .Pulpit and other orators devoted
very little of their time to learning
; the true position and condition of the
"In view of thi3 fact," said he, "it is
quite impossible to conceive that many
claim that the social question should
not be discussed from the pulpit; or
that the church lias positively nothing
to. do with tbe solving of the social
question. When we look at this so
cialism of today it must fill us with
shame, while considering and study
ing the lesson of this day, that Chris-
tianity had not before taken up the
social question. At all times has the
church been accused, and with the
greatest bitterness, and treated with
the severest contempt by members of
the ranks of workingmen, because It
is asserted that brotherhood as taught
by the Christian church is only a sham.
only on the lips of the Christian and
not in his heart. These are, I assure
you, hard words, but they are never-
theless true. The workingmen claim
that the church strives to .content a
hungry man with consoling him and
assuring him of relief in the life to
come. More an the reproaches cf
others and outsiders does the spirit of
the Holy Ghost punish us, and in the
church today many are becoming con
scious of the neglect; and a fresh spir-
it, a new life, begins to make itself
manifest. • The church should be more
considerate, bscause in devoting itself
to the interests of the laborers it will
move in that direction which the Say-
ior has pointed out for it to follow.
A movement is being born which
teaches us that humanity generally,
and its conditions, should be more
thoroughly studied. The workingmen
today are beginning to realize what
power in furthering their cause the
Christian religion really is. The great-
est of all American labor representa
tives, Henry Lloyd, took part in a con
vention of socialists held in Washing
ton last fall. He had been especially
invited by the Brotherhood of St. An-
drews" In an address he delivered upon
that occasion he exclaimed: 'I wish
. I could show the working people of this
of a bishop, a learned divine, a capi
talist, an employer and a labor agita-
tor seated on the same platform. All
here but for one purpose— the improve-
ment of the condition of the working
man. . In the course of ids address he
stated how he had met in England
great leaders of the social movement
inside the churches, fighting the great
battle within the walls of the church.
"What made the dock strike in Lon-
don some years ago so effective as to
move the grand old man, Gladstone,
to say that that strike had done more
for the workingmen than 100 years of !
earnest legislation? Only the fact that j
such men as Cardinal Manning and
Canon Farrar identified themselves j
with the strikers, and took up their !
cause and fought it so grandly with j
the only too well known result, j
Henry Lloyd does not hesitate in call- i
Ing the social movement a religious ;
one, and, indeed, so it is. Religion Is J
not a matter of mere privacy, but of i
construction. It aims to the advance- !
ment of brotherhood, and its ultimate [
success. No more, no less.;7/y
"The workingmen cannot conquer ;
with outward means. I refer to the j
law. The settling of all disputes, the
progress to be instilled into the move-
ment must be with a principle. For i
one grand example think of the days :
of slavery. Slavery -appealed to feel
ings and convictions, and . under such \
circumstances it was finally abol- |
"It Is, however, a remarkable fact j
that many capitalists and employers
begin ,to "realize what the true situa
tion Is, and the power the church mu
ses into the movement. Let it con- ,
tlnue to do It; and I tell you. It will;
the more socialism is spoken of the
more it will be spoken of. It is new;
the ideas of the church embodied in
the question cannot fail to make it
successful. Fifty years hence the
world will be different. The church is
working slowly but steadily, and it
will continue to do so. And you never
yet experienced a motive the church,
the Christian religion, may have bad,
but that It succeeded so admirably.
The Influence, of Jesus has virtually
changed the views of workingmen.
He at all times said, 'Follow mc and
you will succeed,' and this heralding
and admonishing command I make
here, 'Follow the Christian church and

INDIANAPOLIS, June 2.-A largo
mound standing near Lynn, in Ran
dolph county, -just at present is en
gaging much attention from archae
ologists. It was first supposed to be
artificial, but the contrary was shown
when the village began carting away
gravel for use on the streets a nd roads.
The removal of gravel disclosed that
the mound wa.3 of natural formation,
as shown by its stratified condition,
and the interesting fact also developed
that It had been used as a burying
ground by people of prehistoric age.
Thus far 100 and more graves have
been opened, and human remains of
all agea and both sexes have been ex
humed. Ornamental pieces, with arrow
heads and the remains of lower ani
mals have also in-, found. The shape
of the skulls and the high check bones
Indicate that the people burled there
were Indiana of the mound-building
age. Near this burying ground are a
number of artificial mounds, with
earthworks, still further away.
The graves in the first-named mound
range from three to eighteen feet In
depth, and are so made that a. man
could scarcely work therein. The po
sition in which the skeletons were
found lead to the supposition that the
bodies were lowered by their bands,
and were permitted to settle in any
position they might naturally take.
In many Instances the head wis found
between the knees, with th.- hands
resting on or near the bead. A skele
ton exhumed yesterday v.-as found at
the depth of nine feet Lying in the
same grave was a quantity of burnt
bone, having the appearance of human
bone. The skeleton had no marks of
flre. In another grave, but a Dhort
distance ..wax*, the remains had been
burned, and it. is the supposition that
they were the remains of some cap
tive who was made to perish by fire.
.Wood charcoal Is also frequently
found. Many of the findings in thi3
mound have been forwarded to the
museum of Karlham college for preser
vation, and others have been cent to
Washington. The tolerations are to
be continued Indefinitely.
