TWO AT TRINITY EPISCOPAL
Talks at Men's Meeting at Y. M. C. A.
in Afternoon Relates Experien
ces of His Conversion.
Speaking yesterday mornlns and
f veninjj at Trinity Episcopal church,
and In the afternoon at the Y. M. C. A.,
Mark Levy of Indon, the Hebrew
Christian evangelist, had many inter
f sting experiences to relate in refer
ence to his own conversion from Juda
J: m to Christianity and to the customs
-f Israel. In part he snokc as follows:
"There Is no conflict between the
I1 and new testaments, which were
written by loyal sons of Israel. The
iinclent Hebrews numbered every let
ter and the middle letter of every word
cf the Scriptures. The orthodox Jews
today have a great reverence for the
vord of God: when the Torah is car
ried In the synaRogue many ro forward
to kiss it; if the rabbi mispronounces
rne word the congregation interrupts
One of the names of the Messiah
is Ma in re (word), illustrating St.
John's statement. 'In the beginning
was the word." Jesus snid. 'Not the
smallest hook of the smallest Hebrew
word shall past away till all be ful
filled.' Worship Snmr :!.
"In synagogue and church the same
me God. is worshipped by Jews and
Christians, under the thrco identical
names, Avlnu (oer Heavenly Father).
Afeshcach (Christ), and Ruach Hako
desh (the Holy Spirit). The Hebrew's
word "one," echad, used In the text,
"Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the
Lord is One," denotes duality or plur
ality in unity, as is proved by many
scriptures. The supernatural birth
of Christ la referred to many times
in the old ; testament and proved
especially ' hy the Scriptures. The
Lord himself will give -you a sign:
'Behold a virgin shall conceive and
bear a son, and shall call his name
Immanue!, which is 'God is with us.'
The Hebrew word used to describe the
blessed virgin is Hoalmoh, which
word Is also used to describe Rebekah
before she met our father Isaac, and
Miriam, the sister of Moses, when she
watched the cradle of bulrushes, and
other Hebrew virgins.
' IJo Not ( to H Jews.
"Jews who accept the Messiahship
of Jesus do not cease to be Jews. St.
Paul, many years after his conversion
said. "I am a Jew'; 'I am a Roman":
'My citizenship is in heaven.' He did
not despise his Jewish birthright, nor
undervalue his position as a full born
Roman, but used them to the glory of
God and the blessing of his fellow
men. The church makes a great mis
take In telling Jewish Christians that
they must not observe circumcision
and the customs of Moses, which are
dear to the heart of Israel, and were
observed by Jesus Christ and his He
brew followers till the 5th century.
When St. Paul Paid. 'In Christ Jesus
there is neither Jew nor Gentile, bond
or free, male nor female,' it is obvious
that he no more intended to un-Jew the
Jew, than he did to unsex the Gentile.'
The Jew who believes in Jesus remains
a Jew; the Gentile remains a Gentile."
RECEIVE ONE BID
Contractors Not Anxious to Take

"I suffered for months from sore
throat. Ecleetric Oil cured me in 24
hours." M. S. Gist, Hawesvillc, Ky.
Only one bid was received at the
local office of the corps of engineers
on the construction of the Moline lock.
that by the Dravo Contracting com
pany of Pittsbnrg, Pa., which was
1107,817. Owing to the fact that there
is but the one bid, the corps of engin
eers will itself make a quotation on
the work, and when this is completed,
the recommendation of Maj. C. S.
Riche, who is in charge, will be for
warded V the chief engineer. The bid
is regarded as a reasonable one, hut
is slightly above the estimate placed
on the work in advance by the engin
eers. The engineers will not under
take the work unless the difference in
the figures is a material one. The
Pittsburg firm Is a large and reliable
one, and favorably known to the engin
One Out of 82.1.
The fact that only one bid was made
is regarded as a commentary on the
unusually large amount of work that
the contractors of the country now
have on hand. It is so great that the
contractors are not anxious to secure
other work. The office sent out infor
mation to 323 contractors, with re
quests for bids. Another feature of
the contract which had its effect In
lowering the number of bids was the
condition of the payments. Only $UK),
000 has been appropriated to this time
for the work, and a part of this has
been expended in preparation for the
actual construction. The contract eon
tains a- provision that should further
appropriations be delayed the amounts
due for the work finished shall be paid,
but the contractor must take a risk oi
further appropriations. It is confi
dently expected that the appropriations
for the completion of the work will be
made promptly, but the responsibility
of a delay is provided for in the con
tract. The work is the largest which the
local engineers' office will be called
on to undertake for many years, and
is one of the largest for a number of
years past. The work will be under
the general direction of Maj. C. S.

IOWA BILL FOR LEGAL
MURDERS WAS A JOKE
Absence of Dr. Gregory, Supposed
Sponsor of Measure, from House
Nearly Spoiled Hoax.
Des Moines, March 12. The intro
duction in the house yesterday after
noon of the so-called "Gregory bill"
for the "removal" of incurables was a
joke which came near miscarrying.
Dr. Gregory and some of the other
medical men In the legislature had dis
cussed the matter In a spirit of pleas
antry, and, without the knowledge of
any except possibly Dr. Gregory, the
j jokers prepared the billand nearly ev
ery big newspaper in the country was
furnished with "advance copy" of the
story, to be used yesterday morning.
The measure was ' patterned after a
similar bill which has been before the
Ohio legislature in recent years.

RAINEY FOR CHAIR
Democratic Majority Rule League
of Illinois Lays Plans for m
MEETING HELD AT CHICAGO
Evidences of Contest Between Hearst
and Bryan Supporters Are
Chicago, March 12. Plans to oust
John' P.' Hopkins asd to seat Congress
man Henry T. Rainey as temporary
chairman of the democratic state con
vention were perfected at a meeting of
the Majority Rule League of Illinois,
which met yesterday in the Palmer
house. Incidentally the Hearst lieuten
ants claim a big victory over the Bryan
contingent in the league, and declared
they had launched a machine that
would wrest the control of state demo
cratic politics from the Hopkins-Sullivan
I ? County Convention.
The machinery which the Hearst
people decided to use to seat Congress
man Rainey is the county conventions.
A long set of resolutions was adopted
with but two dissenting votes, denounc
ing gavel rule, reviewing the delibera
tions of the last state convention, de
nouncing the present state managers
as "having used the party machinery
to promote the interest of the Ogden
Gas company" and calling on all true
democrats to aid in placiag the party
machinery in "worthy hands." The
concluding paragraph is:
"Resolved, That this league recom
mends to its members and to all demo
crats in favor of majority rule that
they have presented and adopted at
their coiinty conventions a resolution
instructing the delegates to the state
convention to vote for Congressman
Henry T. Rainey for temporary chair
man of the next democratic state con
vention at Springfield, May 11, 190G."
