FATHER QUINN TO PEOPLE
ntroductory Sermon in SL Joseph's
Church Yesterday Morning Re
lations of Priest and Parish.
"The best gift to a nation or any or
ranlzation Is an upright, honest man.
md the nation or church that has not
ipright, honest men in charge of its
iffairs is poor indeed." said Rev.
7athcr James J Quinn. new
lomaa Catholic dean of Rock
-Eland, in his introductory sermon to
.he people of St. Joseph's parish yes
erday morning. "One of the first sigiis
)f decay is in the character of the men
at the head of an institution, and when
i nation or church has backslidden the
first sign is a loss of Integrity of its
Prtrait nod ( hurt-k.
With this introduction. Father Quinn
.poke cf the work of the priest of a
church. "On the personality of its
priest does the church rely," he said.
He holds that the teachings of a piiest
is in his life, and a priest's orthodoxy
should be in his disposition. No man
s sreat by reason of his faculties, but
a man is great by rea.on of the results
he produces. A pries: is not strong
because of his strength in orthodoxy,
but because of the sympathy between
himself and the church congregation.
"If any man should be the friend of
man. it is the Catholic priest. lie has
ihe noblest mission among men. Hz
is looked upon as a synonym of vlrtua
and enlightenment. Hut men of en
iightenment without influence are the
worst kind of rubbish. It is the duty
of a Catholic priest to lend his influ
ence to every movement tending to the
uplifting of a community."
Speaking directly of his association
with the Sr. Joseph's church, he said:
"I can not but believe that there is a
srand future here, not only for the city
of Kock Island, but for its oldest par
ish. St. Joseph's. May we be united in
the golden bonds of faith and charity.
I was told that to accept this charge
would be foolish, but I believe I was
wise to do so. I am a practical man.
and a bulldtr, and in this work I will
find obstacles worth overcoming. I
expect obstacles, but was ever good
accomplished without them? It is in
doing things difficult that there Is
glory and honor."
In conclusion, he said: "Ist Mon
day when I came to Rock Island I ded
icated the rest of my life, all my ener
gies, and abilities, to the people of
Rock Island and to the members of St.
Joseph's parish especially."
The new dean asked the aid. confi
dence and cooperation of his people.

POWER OF HABITS
Discussed at Y. M. C. A. Yester
day Afternoon by Marion Ste
venson, of Btoomington.
TALK ON PERSONAL CONDUCT
Comparison of Church cf Corinth with
Church of Today William
Marion Stevenson, superintendent of
the state bible school of the Christian
church at Blooniington. addressed the
men's meeting at the Y. M. C. A. yester
day afternoon on "Personal Limitations
of Personal Liberties." "No church to
day of the prominence of the Corinth
church would for a moment toleratt
the condition of unclean'.iness allowed
and apologized for there, and which led
to the letter being written to regulate
their christian conduct," said the speak
er in his introduction.
He spoke of the questions of persona'
conduct which arise today, and of th.
settlement of these questions. The
easy way, he said, is to watch the
crowd, and do as the rest do. This
question is considered in three way-;
in the text, as individual questions, ao
related to others, and in relation t-
Sliivrry t llattll.
First it must be determined whether
ihe act will be lawful then whether it
is worth while, and thea whether it will
enslave one to a habit. Cm the last
proposition he spoke to some length.
emphasizing the power of habits. "Do
ing some things that church members
do is ridiculous and shameful, and yet
there may be no harm in the acts
themselves. We should remember that
our bodies are the dwelling place of
the Holy Spirit, and consider what kind
of a dwelling place we keep," said the
In conclusion he urged that the idea
of "no harm in it," be discarded, and
the questions of personal conduct be
considered more along the lines of the
three propositions taken up in the epis
tle to the Corinthians.
The boys' meeting was addressed by
William Lavender of this city, on the
subject of "Friendship." He pointed
out to the boys the fact that a realiza
tion of the meaning of many words can
not be had without personal experi
ence. He concluded by pointing out
the value of a friendship between the
young man and Christ.
