Mr. Waner's contention wa-s that
the money paid her by her husband
was for her support during his life
and that after his death she expected
she would receive her share as allowed
by law from his estate. She did not
mean in signing the contract t hat she
should waive her widow's rights.
The contract was produced at the
hearing by W. J. Entrikin, executor of
the Warier estate. The court held that
Mrs. Waner must have known its im
port when slit; became a party to it.
and therefore she could not recover
further against the estate. There

Eighty-five men gathered last even
ing at the Broadway Presbyterian
church to attend the organization ban
quet of the Men's club of the church.
In the Sunday school, room of the
church 11 tables had been set. and
there a fitting banquet was served by
the ladies of the church. The tables
were tastefully decorated, and candles
supplemented the electric lights.
Following the banquet Phil Mitchell.
who presided, introduced the speaker
of the evening. Rev. Richard D. Har
lan, D. D.. president of Lake Forest
college. Dr. Harlan's subject was
"The Municipalization of Patriotism."
He made a very interesting address
calling attention to the need of local
izing patriotism. The keynote of Dr.
Harlan's remarks was the sentence:
"The best United States citizen in this
room is the best Rock Islander pres
ent." Double Standard of Moral.
In opening his address Rev. Harlan
spoke to some length on the double
standard of morals for men In public
life. This double standard is readily
admitted, and it is uot uncommon for
it to be said of a man that he is "per
sonally honest." when in public life it
is known that he has stolen franchises.
corrupted legislatures, and deprived
the people of the right to govern them
selves. "The man who is personally
honest in this way is personally dis
honest in the most dangerous way,"
said Rev. Harlan. The common thief
is labeled everyone knows where to
find him but the man who corrupts
legislatures is difficult to bring to jus
tice. "Too many men attempt to regulate
their morals by having a private com
partment to lock their consciences in
when in public life." said the speaker.
"We must demand the old-fashioned
principle of our public men, and not
:idmit of such a standard of honesty.
Call things by their right name.
"But the main point is that we must
have a new idea of practical patriot
ism. The common ideas of patriotism
is vague and sentimental; it is exhibi
ted in frothy Fourth of July sort of elo
quence, or in cases of emergency when
the country needs men for war. It is
not difficult to lind men to die for the
country, but to get men to live for
their country; that is the more diffi
cult and the more valuable mission.
Many men take a great interest in na
tional affairs, but are useless when lo
cal betterment is undertaken." Dr.
Harlan approved of such organizations
as the Men's club, saying that it wa.s
left to just such groups of men to bring
about a new standard of morals for
public and private life.
"Am ;mmI n Denrrved.
"We get just as good government as
we deserve," said Dr. Harlan. "We
get the government deserved by the
large class of men taking active inter
est in practical jKilifics. In the mis
government of our officials wo see our
own misgovernment. It is the bad cit
izenship of good men, not the bad cit
izenship of bad men, that works the
evil." Rev. Harlan ald that he would
substitute for the proverb, "A great
and glorious thing it is to die for one's
country," a proverb "A great and fit
ting thing it is to live for one's city."
If a man does not love his own city,
how can he love his country?
Rally 'Itounri llallot ll(U."
"Concentration is the keynote of the
new idea of patriotism. We need
larger navies and coast defenses, but
not as much as we need such groups
of young men as this, to battle against
the foes of their own community." It
should not be "Rally 'round the flag,"
but "Rally 'round the ballot boxes"

Principal H. K. Drown, of the high
school, responded to the toast. "The
Twins, the School and the Church.
Mr. Drown followed along the line of
Dr. Harlan's address, and ointed out
the advantages of a ik-w standard of
honesty in training the young to be
come gxl citizens. "How can we ex
pect to train young nu n to become good
citizens, when they can go on th
streets of the city any night and see
the laws allowed to bo violated and
cast aside?" Mr. Brown said the great
work of localizing patriotism is with
the school, the church, and the home.
Dr. J. W. Stewart responded to the
toast "Broadway Blue Points." He
mentioned the origin of the term
"blue," applied to Presbyterians in the
time of Cromwell. He recalled the ear
ly struggles of the church, and the fact
that it is just 30 years at this time
since the organization of Broadway
church was agitated. In closing his
remarks Dr. Stewart paid a fitting
tribute to the pastor. Rev. W. S. Mar
quia, who has guided the affairs of the
church for over 20 years.
The closing toast was "The Gospel
of Good Cheer," and wa3 rescinded to
in fitting terms by Messrs. C. J. Searle.
