NOT KIDNAPING BUT
MERELY AN ELOPEKENT
OPPOSES INFIDEL THEORIES
Services for Children He!d Yesterday
Afternoon Will Gather Again
In his sermon last evening Dr. Bie
derwolf played on the minds of hi.;
hearers by picturing the awfulness oi
a death without Christ. "What peace
can a dying man have other than the
1 peace of Jesus Christ?" he asked. Jle
urgeii thai the acceptance of Chtisi he
not Utlaye.l until Hie iii.tint ui oi' l-s-'pair,
when lift1 is going out, and ai!
other hope is gone, saying. "If I'.u.
Christian religion i-t a g.:.l thing
fli hy. as ail se.-iii to a;-r e. ii en
taiuly is u far b tier thing to I i v by."
Tin- -.!-sl ion of what sluil! If ilom
with J:i!s Ciiri-t. lie said is ciu lhal ii
n question of tin; present inonuut, and
the decision must be made now. "If
ycu leave this build. ng without ac
cepting Christ," he raid, "your steps
will be but echoes of your rifusal to
receive the greatest Messing for man."
In. the course of his sermon Or. Bie
eierwolf devoted himself to a discus
sion of the intidel theory that Chris
was not the ton of God. He took up
various InKdcls cf note, and their par
ticular theories as to Christ. "The iu-
Iidel. he said, does all in nis pr.ver
to try to rid man of the necessity of
answering what he will do with Christ,
but in vain." He took up each of the
theor.es. that Christ was a mythologi
cal character: that he was the creation
.f some man of wonderful intellect;
that he was merely a good, hones:
man; and that Robert Ingersoll. wh )
held that Chri.-t was a mere man. good,
honest, and earnest, but .self-deceived.
In this connection the speaker men
tioned John Alexander IVr.vie as the
present day example of the self-deceived
man. Concluding his discussion cf
the infidel theories. Dr. Biedtrwolf
said, "You must decide then, which
Christ was an impostor, a lunatic, or
the son of Cod he claimed himself to
be. The first two are preposterous,
jet j'oa hesitate to accept the third."

The trouble created by the elope

were refused a marriage license here

Among other matters before the
board was the petition presented by
residents of the first and second
wards at (he last meeting, regarding
I he erection of a new school building
in the Grant school district. Facts re
lating to the enrollment and .attend
ance of the schools in the western
part of the city were presented and
considered by the board. Superintend
ent Hayden was instructed to secure
figures on the probable enrollment at.
the Grant, school next year at the open
ing of the fall term, as well as at the
other schools in the lower end of the
city. The matter was then laid over
until a later meeting, when these fig
ures can be presented.
Principal H. E. Brown of the high
school was authorized to prepare and
issue a new high school catalog and
course of study, the one issued in J902
being inadequate on account of the
many changes made in the force of
teachers and the course of study since

The members cf the board were giv
en an opportunity to witness the oper
ation of the new wireless telegraphy
apparatus recently added to the high
school physics department. Mr. Hall,
the instructor, was present and demon
strated the working of the apparatus.
While cf very simple construction, the
apparatus embodies the essential
principals discovered by Marconi, and
with the transmitting key in one room
calls made on an ord'narj- telegraph

to by the receiving key in an adja

On Account of the Earthquake and Fire
were Compelled to Cancel Their Orders for
HPHE merchants of San Francisco who had placed their orders for Men's Negligee Shirts
with Rauh & Mack, of Cincinnati, Ohio, one of the largest shirt manufacturers in the
county, with the view of having an immense sale this Spring for a popular shirt that retails
for $1 00 had to cancel all orders with the above named firm. Messrs. Rauh & Mack natur
ally had these shirts on their hands, In order to dispose of them even at a loss they sug
gested that they be distributed among the merchants of the east.
A lucky strike for us just at this time of the season when you will want to renew your
supply of shirts for the summer. We bought our share 50 dozen at a loss to the manuf ac
turer, and we are going to sell them to you at a great saving of just one-half. They were
made to retail at $1.00 and they are excellent values at the price, but tomorrow and balance
of the week we are going to sell them at 50c. Ask yourself the question, "Where can I get
a shirt like this for 50c." These shirts comprise all the very latest shades of blues, tans,
grays, black and white effects, some with cuffs others with detachable cuffs, some with collars,
a varietj seldom seen in one collection for the money we ask.
