Offer of Owners of Land to Be
Crossed by Outlot of System.
According to Dr. E. F. Bartholomew,
professor of philosophy and English
literature at Augustana college, com
petition is the law of death and not
the law of life. In a lecture con
cluded before the sociology class yes
terday, Dr. Bartholomew held that Un
law of the survival of the fittest is
inhuman and must give way to the
law of humanity before the trouble
some social questions of the day will
be solved. Dr. Bartholomew's state
ments wero entirely from the sociolog
"These questions will never be
solved," said Dr. Bartholomew, "until
man is brought into the right relation
ship to man. Today we are almost '.n
the fatalistic grip of systems. The
man who crushes the lives of children
in the factories excuses his crime on
the basis that it is a part of the sys
tem. This is wrong. The individual
must be placed above the system. The
worth of a nation Is no more nor less
than the worth of the individuals com
"Men are selfish and not by nature
righteous, and to harmonize these up
righteous beings is the object of so
ciety. Man must be brought up to
the point where he loves not only Goi
of all his heart, but he must also cher
ish a true and abiding love for his fei
low man. Sociologists are more and
more coming to the conclusion that
the social question is dependent on the
moral question and that men must
flrst be taueht to love each other.
Tne bible, therefore, makes a veryi
good text book in sociology.
Itlblc an Text Book.
"This, therefore, invites the scholar
to study the plan of God in His gov
ernment. The teachings of the New
Testament throughout deal with so
cial questions.. The question, Am I
my brother's keeper?' is always ap
parent. We are all members of a
great family and as such we are
bound together by moral obligation-.
The same principles that dominate
heaven must also dominate the social
kingdom on earth. The law of th-?
survival of the fittest must give way
to a new law of fitting all to survive.
"There is no rest for man except ia
fellowship. Modern life is contrary in
the character and principles of human
nature. Humanity has been forced
info this deplorable condition of com
petition. Competition exists in every
ining in a struggle for supremacy, but
this competition leads to but one re
sult, namely, death.
"We need no more laws to remedy
the social evils; we have too many
now. There' is only one thing that
can save humanity and that is a great
tide of spiritual vitality. There is no
need of knowing more of what should
be done so much as to have the cour
age to do right. It is useless to preach
the doctrine of wealth and poverty i'
an age like this. Some men will be
come rich in spite of everything, and
others will be poor in spite of every
thing. IimIIvIiIiiuIn. Not MnnxeM.
"In dealing with sociological ques
tions we must apply them to the in
dividuals and not to the masses, for
individuality is the cornerstone of so
ciology. The subordination of the in
dividual to society is a false doctrine.
Man is a person, not a machine, and
as such he has a mind and will of his
own. Even as an agent of society he
is an individual personality and can
oppose the will of an association. A3
the atom retains it individuality in
the molecule, so man preserves his

The city council met in adjourned
regular session' yesterday afternoon at
3 o'clock for the purpose of inspecting
the new boilers at the waterworks
and the route of the proposed outle
of the Seventh ward sewer system.
The boilers were installed abou'
three weeks ago and were used fo:
the first time the first of this week.
They are the product of the Browne!!
company's boiler works of Dayto:
Ohio, and are of 125 horse power each
The boilers were found satisfactory
and up to the specifications of thj
contract and were accepted. The con
tract price of the boilers was $2,170.
Examine Sewer Route.
The aldermen went from the wate
works to the proposed sewer site ant
investigated the proposition as offerei
by the owners of the land involved, J.
L. Hagaman and J. F. Lewis, at tht
last regular meeting of the council.
The owners met the aldermen an
showed them over the land in ques
tlon. They ask the city to vacate th
portion' of Sixth avenue now openc
between Thirty-fifth and Thirty-sixt
streets, to release all rights to a pos
sible future opening of the avenu
between Thirty-sixth and Thirty
eighth streets, and to make a fillin:
of 20 feet on Thirty-sixth street. Fo
this consideration the owners will a!
low the city to lay the sewer in th.
present waterway running diagonal!
through their property.
Want too Much.
The aldermen and city officials a'.
most unanimously oppose the propo
sition. They figure that the lan
which, would be vacated, valued a'
$30 per foot, would amount to $1,800
and that the fill asked for would be i
big consideration itself. City Attor
ney Witter expressed the belief thi;
the right of way for the sewer can of
secured by condemnation proceeding;
for $400 at the outside, while the con
sideration asked amounts to severe
thousand dollars. Upon reassembline
at the council chamber the council
voted to lay the proposition over to
the next meeting.
Allow Sewer Hill.
The council authorized the mayoi
and clerk to issue vouchers in favoi
of the People's Construction companj
for $6,168.70, which is part of the ro
maining portion of the city's share oi
the cost of the No. 2 storm drain now
nearly completed by the company.
The balance due on the city's portior
has not been appropriated, the amoun
allowed taking the last of the appro
priation for the work.
