Hon. John J. tngalls Lectures
in Rock Island.
THE SECOUD OENTURT PROBLEM.
Th. San Flower Slat. Orator Speaks of the
Iodlfferrue. of American. Citizenships
th. Most Formidable Question of the
Day Sowing What W. Boap. '
A splendid audience greeted the
renowned orator, ex-Senator John J.
Ingall, of Kansas, at the chapel of
Augustana college last evening. Af
ter two excellent songs by the Apollo
quartet the lecturer was introduced
by the president of the Lyceum.
Emil G. Cbindlund. Mr. Ingalls pre
faced bis address with a few choice
nnmorons pyrotechnics, which, ex
ploding, created a storm At applause
which did not subside until the
speaker had slipped into his great
subject, '-Problems of Our Second
Century,'" after which the andience
was kept spell-bound for more than
an hour and 30 minutes.
At the outset of his observations
and in the vestibule of his remarks
be spoke of what he considered to be
the most serious and formidable
prooiem that is threatening oar
American society and civilization to
day, and that is the indifference, the
inattention and neglect, the igno'
ranee of the educated, upright, moral
and Christian classes in our society
to the discharge of their political
rights and duties as citizens of this
republic. Because every question
under this system in which we -live
is a political question to be decided
ov the mn and women who are
growing up to manhood and woman
hood. Ihey are to be decided bv
them at the ballot box.
Complaint of th. Times.
"The complaint of the times in
which we live,'" said Mr. Ingalls,
and the reproach is bad government
and corruption in modern society
We hear constant denunciations from
the pulpit, in the press and from the
platform, of degredation and corrup
tion in the government; p utocracy,
or the government by millionaire's;
oossism, or corruption in municipal
affairs; boodlism in great cities, the'
sale of franchises by legislatures, de
fulcation of high officials in the dis
charge of their duties; and there is
no better place than this platform.
no better auspices under which to
say that for the evils, corruptions
and mal-administrations of our soci
ety and government, the best people
are responsible. The people of this
country in every community and
locality have exactly as good govern
ment as they deserve to have. The
government in every city, town and
state is what the best people saw fit
to make; and, if your taxes are ex
cessive, if your revenues are squan
dered, and if evil and designing
rogues ana knaves mount to power.
it is not the fault of the institutions
of society, but of the men and women
who lorm that soctetv, because they
neglect their political and social
duties. If congress errs in its duties
it is not the fault of congress, but
the fault ot the people who sent the
Should Tajr Mora Attention to Politics.
It is necessary, he held, for
the upright, religious and edu
cated classes to pay greater at
tention to their political du
ties. In other words they should
be politicians; not in the sense of be
ing seekers after office, but in a more
patriotic sense, by taking constant
interest in public affairs. In speak
ing of the rights and privileges of
American citizenship, the speaker
saiu some legislation should be en
acted that will prevent any man
from setting foot on board a sh
which is about to sail for these
shores, unless be has affirmatively
established the fact to the officer for
that purpose appointed that he is
able and willing to be a selfsupport
ing, patriotic American citizen. "And
I believe nothing could so far con
tribute to the preservation of this
great franchise and to the maintain
ing 01 ennai rights lor all," con
tinued Mr, Ingalls, "than for.
every community, no matter where
it might be, to p'ace in its law
1 . ' . . . . . . .
declaration mat no man should per
icrm me last act 01 American citi
zenship unless able to read and
write and speak the English tongue
which is upon the ballot which be
deposits in the box."
In conclusion the distinguished
orator said that to solve the great
problems presented to the American
people the true remedy will be found
not in legislation or enactment, bnt
in the faithful, conscientious and
patriotic discharge of the political
and social dnties of every American
citizen. In this way shall we be eu
abled to make this, as our fathers in
tended it should be, a government of
laws and not a government of men
"And do not forget." he said, "in theJ
great struggles that are before you
and to whch yon are committed
that there is one inexorable
universal law, to which we
are are all subject; a law as
high as heaven and as deep as hell;
law irom which none are exempt, to
wnicn even tne weakest are subiect,
and that is the divine law of com pen
ration. id it is as true now as
when written, for nations as well as
for men that -We do not gather
grapes from thorns nor figs from
thistles;' that virtue, intelligence
and industry will have their reward,
and ignorance and fmmorality will
have their punishment. And that
which was true in the beginning is
now and will be nntil time shall be
no more, that 'Whatsoever a man
oweth, that shall he also reap.' "

Tomorrow will be Thanksgiving
day, an occasion set aside by na
tional and state executive for the of.
fering of expressions of gratitude to
the Giver of all Good for the bounte
ous blessings that have been received
at His hands. The protestant
churches of the city, in accordance
with a custom for some years ob
served, will hold a union service in
the morning which will also afford
an opportunity for gifts to the poor.
The service will be held at
the First Baptist church at 10 o'clock
in the morning. Rev. Ira W. Allen,
of the Central Presbyterian church,
will preach the sermon. The Ladies'
Industrial Relief society is to make
the time one of doing good for the
poor of the city, when it is antici
pated that all having contributions
of clothing will take them to that
service. It is hoped the offering
will be 01 such a nature as will en
able the ladies to prosecute their no
ble work among the needy of the
community as they are desirous of
doing and have planned to do.
At Trinity church there will be
services at 10 a. m. and 7:30 p. m.
At the morning service Rt. Rev.
William Stevens Pe'rrv, bishop of
Iowa, will preach.
Thanksgiving being essentially a
home day, there will be the usual
family gatherings and reunions about
the festive board, where, mingled
with the thanksgiving, homage will
be paid the distinguished martyr of
the poultry kingdom, over which
there is so much particular discus
sion at this season. Business gen.
erally will be suspended. All the
