SEE THE COMET?
HERE AT LAST
Halley's Sky Vis;tor Visible to
Bock Islanders First Time
This Morning. -
LONG OBSCURED BY CLOUDS
Remained in Sight from 8 to 4:30 a.
m. Looks Like Fuzzy Star
With a Long Tall.
Rock Island . astronomers, ama
teur and otherwise, who remained in
their warm beds this morning neg
lected . a fine opportunity to make
bay while the comet -was shining.
Mr. Halley's great discovery was vis
ible here to the unaided eye for the
first time in 75 years at about 3 a.
in. and remained in sight till day
light threw it into obscurity, some
thing like an hour and a half later.
There was not a cloud In sight, the
first time in about two. weeks that
such conditions have prevailed at
that time in the morning.
The comet was strong enough to
stand out plainly in spite of the fact
that its light was pitted against that
of the moon, now in its last quarter.
The comet rose at 2:48 with the
moon a minute ahead of it aa& about
20 degrees south. The comet rose
almost due east. Tomorrow morning
the' moon will.. rise later than the
comet and the chance to see the lat
ter will be much improved.
Like a Fn7 Star.
As viewed this morning the comet
appeared very much like a fuzzy
star, hardly of first magnitude, qnd
shining with a rather reddish or yel
lowish light. The tail stretched off
into the southeastern sky for a dis
tance of about 10 degrees, or per
haps the width of " three or four
moons placed side by side, and was
almost as bright as the main body
of the sky tramp. -
Comet viewing parties are expect
ed to be popular in Rock Island for
the next two weeks. -During .that
time Halley's will rapidly approach
the earth, growing in volume daily,
till its tail, the astronomers tell us,
will extend one-third of the distance
across the sky.,

Professor J. A. Udden of Augustana
college responded to an invitation to
speak to the club in the absence of
the bishop, and though he received
the request at a late hour in the after
noon, nevertheless he had ready a very
interesting talk on the subject of earth
quakes. He had gathered considerable
data regarding, the light shock which
was felt in this city and vicinity May
26 last year ana the story ne wove
around his data was very interesting
to the members of the club. After the
conclusion of, his talk, A. D. Welch
was called upon for a short talk and
several others also spoke before the
meeting adjourned. Preceding the
speeches, an excellent . supper was
rerved. It was the monthly meeting

Bishop Anderson Points Out Waste
in Present Methods of Spread
ing the Gospel.
Chicago, May 4 Today's session of
the Mn'x National Missionary con
gress opened with a general meeting
attended by all delegates. "World.
Wide Evangelization in the Present
Generation" was the cry of the dele
gates. , Work for VTlty.
Chicago, May 4. With "unity" as
the keynote of what is said to be the
most remarkable gathering of Prot
estant churchmen of all denomina
tions ever held in this country, the
Men's National Missionary society
convened at 3 o'clock yesterday after
noon at the Auditorium.
Methodist sat beside Episcopalian,
Lutheran beside Dunkard, neither
knowing, asking nor caring the de
nomination of the other. While on
the printed program the speakers
were designated by the rank held in
their denominations, anything to In
dicate that more than one church
exists in all the world apparently
was carefully avoided.
Bishop Anderson Heard.
Bishop Charles P. Anderson of the
Chicago diocese of the Protestant
Episcopal church, delivered the first
address on "The Will of Christ for
"What Christ purposes for one
part of the-world, he purposes for
all parts," he said. "Christ belongs
not to one nation, but to all nations;
not to one age, but to all ages. Christ
has no competition'; he has no rivals.
There is no other way in which man
can be saved . except through Jesus
'"We hold that Christianity is the
logical and inevitable outcome of all
religions. The universality of the
Christian religion is based, among
other things, also upon its proven fit
ness. The Christian nations make
much greater progress than all other,
"Civilization is but bumanization
and what is humanlzation but the
work of the teachings of Christ?"
Calls .tfOverlapplaa;'' Wasteful .
Bishop Anderson then devoted his
talk to a plea for uni(y and laying
stress on the wastefulness of "over
lapping," which he said is not wise
nor Christian. He did net advocate
anyone giving up his convictions for
the- sake of unity, and- said no one
had. a right to do so, but said it was
not necessary. - !
