Outline of the Addremt mn4 Also or the
Work AtcMplkki Uariag Uie Pa-t
Year Proaalaeat Members ef tae Aaso
A fitting tribute to the work of the
Yaung Men's Christian Association
was given yesterday morning in the
numerous church services and In the
large audience at the Association
building in the afternoon. The first
year in the completed building has
demonstrated the fact that as an in
vestment the institntion is paying
large returns already. With ade
quate support the coming year a
mucn Droaaer work can be done.
The treasurer reports that although
all bills are paid to date, there are
additional subscriptions ' to the
amount of $1,400 to carry on
the work for the remainder
of the year, a sum which surely
should be subscribed this week.
During the past year the senior
membership has been increased from
150 to 259; the junior from 33 to 55,
making the total May 1, 1895, 314
against 188 a year ago." Since Janu
ary 1 the average daily attendance at
the building has been over 100.
Evening classes in vocal music, me
chanical drawing and penmanship
have been added .to the educational
facilities, with a total enrollment of
38 different students, and have made
sullieient progress to become a per
manent feature, and one of the most
satisfactory departments of effort.
For the money expended nothing has
yielded larger returns. The physi
cal director, W. 1. Lavender,
entered on his duties Oct. 15, and
the gymnasium was opened Thanks
giving day with an exhibition which
was largely attended. Nine gymnas
ium classes have been conducted
each week with an average daily at
tendance of 45. A junior exhibition
was given March 2, and an exhibi
tion by the senior classes March 8,'
both o'f which were largely attended.
The classes have also taken part in
other receptions. A bicycle club
has been organized with 25 members,
storage room provided and club
rooms and other attractions ar
ranged. Receptions have had a
prominent place, holidays being
especially observed, including Hal
low K'en, 'Christmas, New Year's,
Washington's birthday and April
Fools' dav. On election night the
association kept open house with
special returns on its own wires.
These, with coffee and sandwiches.
brought in 290 men. The average
attendance at the young men's
meetings Sunday afternoon for the
year has been 48, a gain of four over
last year. Special Sundays were

day June 3, with out of town speak
ers. The 50th anniversary of the
establishment of the Y. M. C. A. was
fittingly observed June 6, F. II.
Burt, college secretary for Illinois
speaking. A register or desirable
loarding houses is kept at the
office, and during the past year S6
persons have been directed to them.
Among the improvements made has
been a greatly enlarged plant for
tarnishing our excellent bath rooms
with hot water. The appreciation is
shown by the fact that 2.800 baths
have been taken. Three receptions
have been given to the juniors.
These are the facts gleaned from
the report of Secretary Blakslee.
which was read in the various city
churches in the morning.
At the Broadway Presbyterian
church F. II. Burt, college secretary
for Illinois, set forth clearly and ably
some exceedingly interesting facts
concerning this work. The speaker
first congratulated the association
upon the report just read, for the
good showing made; but most of all
upon the generous public spirit
which these results showed in our
citizens. Familiarity breeds not
always contempt, but frequently
carelessness, and it is often from that
we give but slight attention to some
very important facts because they
are so familiar to us. It scarcely
seems possible that the centennial
anniversary of the founding f Sab.
bath schools has but very recently
been celebrated, yet such is the case,
and the magnitieent results which
have crowned that work are the
Achievements of a single century.
Missions are comparatively new, aie
thought of by us as often as though
they had always existed. We won
der now how the church' got along
without organized effort among her
young people, and it is but a dozen
years since Father Clarke, as
we are pleased to call him.
got together the first band of
young people for a regular
work in the church, and so founded
an almost world-wide movement,
the Young People's Society of Chris
tian Endeavor. The importance of
the young man as a factor in the lire
of the nations makes imperative the
demand for a specially rrganised and
equipped institntion which shall pnt
forth' strong and constant efforts for
the upbuilding of a manly, christian
character in the young men of every
community. The day has gone by
when a young man who failed as a
preacher or business man was con
sidered a fit man to be general secre
tary of an association, and the de
mand now is for strong, earnest men
who command the respect of the bus
iness community. Don't cripple the
work either by a niggardly support.
A business don't pay if it has no
capital to work npon, and neither can
the loung Men s Christian Associa
tion show large dividends unless
properly supported. So give hearti
ly and assist earnestlv this institu
tion which has at work a network of
influences connecting the oountry
and city, where so many young men
are gravitating from the rural dis
tricts. Orient and Occident alike
call for this grand organization
among the young men, this world
wide brotherhood at work for Christ,
and no institution promises more for
the purity of the home and civic life
than the 'Young Men's Christian As
sociation. At the Ceatral.
At the Centra! Presbyterian church
Arthur D. Wheeler, of Chicago, de
livered the addres". The speaker
showed the great influence which
the young men of today would have
in a few vears; bovs ' now in our
schools in a dozen years would be
the leading professional and com
mercial men in this and every other
city of the land. The fntnre wel
fare of the country demanded that
these men have proper principles.
Young men get their principles
largely from -their associates, and in
the Y. M. C A. provision is made to
touch bovs on the social side of their
nature, and thus encourage them to
develop the nobler side of their char
acter. The importance of the Y. M.
C. A. work has been recognized by
me Dest men in this ana other coun.
tries. Queen Victoria on the - 50th
anniversary of the Y. M. C. A. con
ferred knighthood on George Wil
liams, it J founder. The great rail
way magnates of this country appre
ciate the value of the work among
their employes, as it has been
proved that the number of accidents
caused by carelessness had been very
much diminished wherever the Y.
M. C. A. had secured a good foot
hold, and sound business policy, if
nothing better, prompted them to
expend company funds for its sup
port. At tbe Christian.
A. M. Bruner, assistant state sec.
retary, made the address at the
Christian church. If ever a time
ras when the great need of the world
for the work done by the Y. M. C. A.
was felt by an audience, it was the
one that sat and listened to Mr. Bru
ner. It was a masterly effort upon
Mr. Bruner's prt, taking for a text
the 6th verse of the 10th chapter of
Joshua. He pictured very vividly
the great evils which confront the
young men of our dav, who are leav
ing the villages and farms and flock
ing to the greater cities, and unless
some influence can be brought to bear
upon tbeni they will surely drift with
the great arm y of sin. As the watch
is made np of many pieces, so the
church is made to run by the help of
fliuerent societies, lho x. M. U. A.
is not least of all them as an adjunct
to the church. The great evils that
tbe Y. M. C. A. is endeavoring to
counteract by making a pleasant and
welcome place for young men to
spend their spare time. Here they
can h na good literature to road, in
nocont games and a gymnasium by
which they can' overcome physical
weakness, under the direction of
trained men. Tbe Y. M. C. A. is do
ing much against idleness by supplv
ing young men with work as much
as possible, and running evening
classes, and educating young men in
different branches of stndv. All the
Y. M. C. A. needs is the hearty sup
port, good friendly criticism and the
prayers or all christian people. vY ith
out this the work will drag.
At the Flrat M. E.
N. G. Van Sant, of Sterling, spoke
at the iirst 01. church or the good
work done bv the Rock Island Y. M.
C. A. This is an age when
we are caning ior the young people,
and expecting great things of them.
and we find them in the front ranks
doing noble work. The Y. M. C. A
has a strong point in always keeping
open house; also in looking after the
neglected, which is the true Christ
spirit of work. A young man trav.
eling even in Africa, or China, can
find comrades in this society.
At the United Presbyterian church
Mr. Burt spoke of the association"
The men's 'meeting in the after
noon was largely attended, the
chapel or the x. M. c. A. being filled
to overflowing. Five young men
professed converson as a result of
the appeal made. In the evening
several meetings were held in the
down town churches, which were all
At the Baptist church General Sec
retary Blakslee spoke in the unex
pected absence or Mr. Kegan, who
had missed railway connection. Mr.
Blakslee took for his theme, ""For
mative Influences." showing how
young men he "had known had been
led into the association through its
various attractions and then into ac
tive church 1 fe through its religeous
influence. " "

that his mission was merely one of
cooperation with the w. u. I. if.,
and that he is anxious and deter
mined to render it all possible as
sistance in enforcing the law to the
letter. He is not acting in behalf of
the W. C. T. U. he says, but he be

on the grandest work ever undertaken
in Rock Island, and since other men,
professing temperance, have failed

a temperance man, but an absolutely
