Effort to Induce Men to Make It Part
of Daily Life Well Attended
That the Interest In the "Men and
Religion Forward Movement" is in
creasing was evidenced last night fcy
the large and enthusiastic attendance
at the meeting held in the Flrw
Methodist church. There were 50 ;
men there, including delegations ;
from Davenport and Mollne, and ;
representatives of most of the !
churches in Rock Island, which are j
Interested in the cooperative move-;
roent. W. E. Williams, executive
secretary of the movement in Chi- '
cago. explained the undertaking, j
dwelling particularly upon the five j
objectives. Prefacing his lecture on j
the subject, the speaker expressed a
desire that prayer by men might be- j
eqne a fixed custom and that the i
business man would acquire it and ,
use it in his business life as well as
'home life. j
WORK FOR A YEAR.
The international committee has !
asked that the men in religion get
together now end work for a year !
to attract others. In order to Col
this there must be unity. A com
mittee 01 irom to iuu in a com- i
munity should be organized and car
. v . v- , . r- , . . '
men s brotherhoods, Sunday schools
, . , ... . , ,,. , .
ana tne x. -i. a. eoouiu ibuu tu-
gether for the purpose of drawing
the attention of men to their relig
ion. This band should be known by
numerical designation, which shall
depend on the number, so that it may
transact any business under any
head. There are five objectives and
fhey Include bible study, boy's work,
evangelism missions and social ser
vice. Mr. Williams advieed that there ,
be a subcommittee for each of these j
objectives, as well as corum!tree on 1
publicity, auxiliary towna and fi
nances. Each subcommittee should '
work in conjunction with the main
committee. The chief thing Is for
the men to realize that they must I
work now to make the movement j
successful and must not slight the j
tlne between now and the end of '.
the year. He advised that the tri- ;
cities work as a unit, and that the ;
' benefits enjoyed by one should be ;
passed on to the other. To end with '
there will be an eight-day campaign I
and specialists from other cities must ;
be secured to carry on evangelistic ;
work through meetings and personal i
work. He advised that the trl-cities
unite in this as well. !
SEPT. 24 HAI.I.T IAV.
Sept. 24 Is rally day of the move-;
ment and the object is to get as many
men as possible Into Sunday school
classes and church meetings on that
date. This does not mean that they
are not wanted there every Sunday
before that time. Mr. Williarus ad
vised that classes be organized now
so that the spirit of the enterprise
will be impressed on everyone before
rally day. April 28 is tq be eon
Bervat'on day and then there is to
be a decision day.
The scope for social service in the
organization is possibly greater in
most communities than any other of ;cam b-v penr.ttang it to be announc

SECOND HEARING UNLIKELY
Fifty-six Hours Spent In Unavailing
Attempt to Arrive at a
Reporting that it could not agree on
a verdict, the jury in the case of Ru
dolph Brandenburg, 22 years old, in
dicted for the murder of his stepfather.
Otto Muenter, was discharged in the
district court, Davenport, at 11 o'clock
last night by Judge F, D. LettB. The

urday afternoon, stood nine for acquit
tal and three for conviction. Branden
burg, it was announced today, would
be released on bond, pending another
trial of the case. Tle second hearing
will be set for the September term of
Owing to the pressure of public sen
timent in favor of the defendant, there
is likelihood that Brandenburg will
never be placed on trial again. While
the young man was indicted for mur
der in the first degree, Fred Vollmer,
the county prosecutor, told the Jury in
his closing argument that the state
would be satisfied with a conviction of
the charge of manslaughter.
IIKKICMJS HIS MOTHER.
Brandenburg killed Muenter in de
fending his mother. Brandenburg con
tinued to live with his mother after
her second marriage. Muenter was a
i heavy drinker. He was abusive to
wards his wife. One night Muenter re
turned to his home in a drunken con
dition. Brandenburg was in the house.
He interfered to protect his mother,
but Muenter would not desist, also-turn
ing on Brandenburg. The latter, when
he realized that lives of his mother and
himself were in danger, as he claimed,
drew a revolver and fired six shots at
Muenter. Four of the bullets entered
Muente's body and killed him instantly.
