The holiday trade has reached the
stage where the stores, big and little,
cannot handle it in the usual number
of hours and, commencing tomorrow
evening, they Mill remain open each
evening until Christmas. The an
nouncement was made today through
the daily bulletin of the Business Men's
association that tomorrow evening has
been settled on as the time for com-
4mencing the practice of keeping the
stores open during the evening hours.
Most of them will remain open until
10:30 or 11 o'clock, which will give the
holiday shoppers all the time they
need to buy Christmas presents.

The Second Baptist church (colored)
cf Rock Island has selected Rev. Frank
Durden as pastor, and the church has
new spirit and the members are now
at work and loving and friendly to-
warrfa each other. We believe the
right man Is In the right place, for he
is a leader and Christian preacher. He
is highly recommended to us, and we
feel now a great deal of good will be
done In the Christian work. We hope
peace and harmony will prevail, trust
ing in God.
Officers of the Church.
"The dove of peace once more hov
ers over our flock," Rev. Durden said
today. "The white flag has been hoist
ed, and all is harmony among the peo
ple of the congregation, as is stated in
the official notice of the church board."
Hub Bern Stormy Year.
This cheering announcement comes
after a stormy year in the Second
Baptist congregation, having had as its
climax suits and counter suits in the
local courts by the dismissed .pastor,
Rev. Robert A. Broyles, in his effort
to prevent the board from denying him
the pulpit of the church, and the mem
bers of the board. However, it is now
stated that Mr. Broyles has stepped
down and out and made way for his
The church is located at Sixth ave
nue and Tenth street. It was built
during the pastorate of Rev. George
Washington, and he had it christened
McKinley chapel after the now mar
tyred president. Since then the name
has been changed to the Second Bap
tist. Pnntor Stand Pat.
Rev. Broyles, it appears, did not
hitch with several of the officials of
the church, and they held a meeting
and passed a resolution asking for his
resignation. The pastor stood pat. He
notified the . board that he would not
step aside ton the action that had been
taken, inasmuch, in h!s opinion, it did
not represent the sentiment of the
congregation nor of the majority of
. Thereupon the key was turned In tne
door and the pastor requested not to
try to enter the church. Mr. Broyles
was not to be turned down thusly. He
said he was doing God's work and that
he would answer the divine call to
speak to his people on Sunday. When
Sunday came he found the door locked.
kicked it open, and occupied the pul
pit, even though he did not have a con
Pint Sermon Heart Sunday.
Then the real storm broke. It has
been raging since. The arrival of
Rev. Durden appears to have effected
the needed adjustment of the differ
ences. He preached to the congrega
tion last Sunday, but will not give the
first sermon of his new pastorate un
til next Sunday. Mr. Durden comes
from Des Moines.
