President Taft, while "swinging
around the circle" in his western trip,
has found time to dedicate and lay
cornerstones for a number of new
buildings for the Y. M. C. A- At La
Crosss. Wis., there was a magnificent
hew building erected at a cost of $100,
000 waiting for him to give the dedi
catory address. He said, in the course
"of hla earnest speech: "When I am
invited to testify to the advantages of
the Young Men's Christian association
to the community, i feel that I should
be neglecting my duty as a man if I
old not bear witness to the great work
Df this association as I have seen it, in
Aiding young men and making them
Valuable members of the communitv,
"In Omaha, in Seattle, in Shanghai, in
Hongkong and Manila, as well as In
many other places around the world,
they have associations where I have
"seen tffis good work. On the Isthmus
of Panama we are using today four
of their trained general secretaries to
Organize oar associations there to help
the young men who are working In the
ropics and to protect them from the
dangers and temptations that beset
Recovery at Son Francisco.
At San Francisco, President Taft
!laid the cornerstone of the new $500,
(000 building now in process of con
struction. At the time of the great
earthquake the San Francisco associa
tion was left homeless and almost
penniless, but now there is one of the
finest association buildings in the
world bbiug erected there.. One re
mark by President Taft at this corner
stone laying is noteworthy. "It Is
about as hard to put money where it
can do gome good as it was to make
that money," he said. "You can put
I all you choose In the Young Men's
Christian association and get the value
of every dollar.'? ,
i Last week the president turned a
golden key in the lock of the new
building at Memphis and opened the
t doors of the place to young men. and
i carried the key home with him. Here-
after, the building will be open night
J and day for its services to men.
Just beforo leaving Beverly, Mass.,
I on . his western trip, the president,
without solicitation, sent his check for
5100 to the comniiuee for the associa-
j tlon building fund. In his letter to
! the chairman of the committee, he
Matins Tnrfaloraa Permanent.
"I have had occasion at a number
of places, half way around the world,
including- the Orient, to emphasize my j
Lvery high opinion of the work which I
t Young Men's Christian association
does, cot only at homo, but abroad,
and the erection of substantial, hand-
.sorne, useful and valuable buildings Is
a long step in making this usefulness
permanent. As I expect to be a resi
dent of Beverly next summer and vo
.'. have: something more than mere gen
eral interest in the progress of mat
ters In the city. I besr you to allow
me to contribute to the building by
Boston, without the aid of the presi
dent, tas just raised a fund of half a
million dollars in -15 days for a new
building and equipment.
Started with Gift of 840,000.
On Oct. 14 trie campaign started
with a gift of $00,090 from the presi
dent of the Boston association, and one
of $20,000 from the vice president of
the association. Other gifts, large and
small, poured In, until more than $500,
000 has been raised for what will be
one of the finest association buildings
in the world.
Pueblo, Colo., one of the few remain
ing large cities without an associa
tion, started a campaign for $100,000
Oct 1L Just 15 days later the cam
paign closed with $112,000 pledged.
The gifts for new buildings for asso
ciations during the present year will
amount to at least three million dol
lars by the end of December.

FORMER COLORED PASTOR HERE AIRS
HIS VIEWS OF RUMPUS IN CHURCH
Rev. R. A. Broyles, formerly pastor
of the Second Baptist church, colored,
who gave up his charge here recently
after p. factional rumpus' had gotten
some of the parties to the controversy
into the police court, hands .The Argus
the following i communication, which
he entitles J;Higher Ground' for pub
lication: ' " ' -". ' - - .y
Rock Island, 111., Nov. 6, 1909? Edi
tor Argus: Our experience, as pastor
of tho Second Baptist church for tho
past two and one-half years has been
fraught with Joy and Borrow,, ; ... Out
motto is : "Purity to purpose - every
where and hi everything," and If .there
has been, a hand uplifted against us,
it ha3 been .because of ignorance and
superstition. L .
The child will cry if. you prevent it
from putting its hand on the blazing
lamp; the lunatic will fight you if you
do not allow him to jump Into - the
river; . the mad man will slay you if
you get between him and his opponent.
In other words, the one who need3
your help most, will least appreciate
it when it Is done. , " -
; "Because thou hast rejected, knowl
edge, I will also reject thee, saitS" the
Lord" Hosea. ' Christ died to save the
world, but the world' hatesVhiml '
r It; will:je Remembered that ' .when
"ws came here April 11907, the Second
Baptlit church was divided into two
factions; one headed by B. F. Crush
shon and the other by; Mrs. Mattie
prury. By. much coaxing, we managed
to get them together.. :; .
Slno that time, by a very hard
struggle on our part, the debtvof the
church has been reduced from $3,621
to $1,650. .'-.
As is natural for a gospel "minister,
now and then -we would touch on civic
righteousness from the pulpit, t About
the middle of January, 1908, we made
a few remarks touching local option.
Feb. 10, S. W. Lu Vann, who had just
resigned the ofUce of . deacon, - too$
Bose Wilson and John Griffin and
wrote a statement to the pastor, , in
which they threatened to destroy the
peace and harmony .".or the" church.
They. Bent." thfs' message to William
Gordon arid Moses T. Grady, who
were trustees of the church at that
time. After a brief discussion, Gor
don and Grady decided that t was
illegal and did not, present it-to the
church. Vann, Wilson and Gf if3n left
the church, t
We defy any man or woman to say
that we, as their leader, permitted a
single jtep to be taken that waa net
tn harmony with the teachings of the
flew testament- and our church discl
i'line Hiscox church manual. , '
June 25, 1909, an illegal meeting was
held by .William Gordon fnd Mrs.
Evelina Bassett, with three or four
others with a number of police, and
we are told that they had a lawyer
also, but we are loath to believe that
a lawyer would use such poor judg
ment, ' .
. But It is a fact that our church rec
ords were mutilated and changed. The
question that confronts us is: Out nf
the half dozen more persons In the
churon at the time, was there not one
who was able to advise the rest
against committing a sin? or were
they all sinners? This is a sarioas
matter with us.- Something ought to
be done to help such people.
But, friends, if we don't hold up our
own heads, we need not expect others
to hold them tp for us. I . have no
right to push myself Jnto your society
when my life is questionable. You
have h perfect right to know whether
my wife and I are legally wedded cr
not. You should begin to think on
these things! You are responsible for
the 8afety of your children, and yet
by the action of about one-half dozen
people, nearly 40 children are cut off
from the study of the bible in the
Sunday school. Read the following
chapters: Ps. C4; Is. 41 and 59; Prov.
6; Second Peter i.
We have tried in every possible way
to get them to agree to have the whole
truth known an. they have rebelled
against it. They refuse to be helped.
A couple of prominent Christiau gen
tlemen went to the church house ol
the request of the members and they
were refused admittance by those who
say they want' the truth known. Th!j
shows that they want the pub'ic to
know the whole truth, doesn't it?
