MR. LELAJJD 1IAKKS A REPLY.
The Flrat Baptist Paator iee
yhe (Mial Evil" question, and
States HI Post tlon More Folly.
At the opening of the services at the
First Baptist church last evening, Rev.
Mr. Leland took up the articles that have
appeared in the local press relative to his
sermon of last Sunday morning, in which
he bitterly assailed some of the most pop
ular of the social oijovroents of the day.
He wished to be understood at the outset
that nnthlnff had it his ODiniOD SO far
arisen to Indicate a controversy between
the clergy and the press. The report
appearing in the Abocs of his sermon
was fair and stated bis position just as it
was. And the position taken by the pa
pera was a clearly defined one. He had
few things to say of the concessions
made by the paper in reply to his ser
mon in demonstrttion of tbe fact that
there was no controversy. The Union
had alluded to the amusement which had
been taken up in bis Sunday morning re
marks, as "frivolois." That was his po
sition. He bad net been talking of tbe
attitude of tbe people generally toward
these modes of amuseinunt, but of the at
titude of the christian people. The s.-ll
log of chances at fairs and other places
was a means of educating children in
gambling and to violate law. Therefore
christian people could but oppose it.
The A RODS and Union had both pub
lished the discourses of Mr. Swing, the
Chicago divine, on tbe subjects of which
he had dwelt. He bad do reflations to
make upon Mr. Swing, but he expressed
surprise that the v ews of Mr. Talmadge,
Dr. Brooks, Bishop Potter, and others of
the leading olergy c f the country, bad not
been taken. Mr. Hiving was not a man
whose religious ideas were in accord with
those of the orthodox clergy. He was an
excommunicated Presbjterian, whose
denominational ctanee was not due to
Immorality, however, but because of
difference in line of doctrine.
In reply to Mr. Leland's inquiry, it is
but fair to tbe Aitoua to state that Mr.
Swing's remarks were given simply be
cause they were so apropos of the subject
under discussion and because they bad
been made just at this time the very
Sunday that the sermons were preached
in Rock Inland, tbo fact being considered.
of course, that he is one of the leading
preachers of the country
Referring to the editorial appearing in
Tuesday evening' issue of tbe Arocs,
Mr. Leland took exception at the outset
to tbe expression, "the flat has gone
forth," and asserted that no fiat bad gone
forth. Ministers don't put forth flats;
they can't do so, they don't wish to
do so. He alluded to the term
"social evils," a term used by tbe Arocs
in an attempted sarcastic way, and said
he was glad tbe. newspapers had the
proper conception of these amusements
Taking up the statement that "from time
immemorial pulpit jrators bate expatiated
on tbe ungodliness of the dance, and it
will probably always be a prolific theme
for criticism and reproach." Mr. Leland
said this was reasonable and true and it
always would be. Then he paid atten
tion to the lines, "the average minister,
of late however, h is been rather prone
to allow the members of hts flock to fol
low their own inclinations in regard to
worshipping at tho throne of terpsichore
during tbe week, if tbey faced him in
their pews on the holy Sabbath." It was
the speaker's obfervance that just in
proportion to tlte extent of indulgence
in worldly pleasures such as are alluded
to, was the irregularity of church at
It was a true statement that the min
isters as a unit bad declared against the
"charity ball." Tjere are 100,000 min
isters in the United States, and it is but
fair to consider tbs t they possess average
Intelligence and culture and standing as
a unit on a particilar policy it is not
probable that as a unit they should be
warped in their prejudices.
There was no dcubt but that the char
ity ball would le continued, but the
question is, will it be so continued out
side or inside of tin church? St Luke's
hospital is an objtct, than which there
are none more worthy and one that should
be dear to all in Rock Island. The
point is, shall it bo supported by means
tbat compromise christian character or
outside of tbe church. He had no objec
tions whatever to the hospital being con
ducted in a manner that seemed most
profitable to those in charge, but if the
churches are askeJ to contribute to it,
they should be able to do so in a manner
tbat would not coi flict with christianit-.
St. Luke's hospral in Chicago had re
cently refused about $2,000, the proceeds
of a charltv ball, while the Englewood
Baptist church, a short time since, de
clined to receive 8350, the proceeds of an
entertainment held in a skating rink.
This is christian se.tin.eQt and tbe speak
er hoped it would continue to r-e so.
The prediction that tho ball may
eclipse all others in point of success if
the "war" is kept up, may be verified,
because it is usually the case where tho
christian spirit takas a stand, the world
rallies on tbe oppoiition side. True, this
ball may eclipse al. others in point of suc
coss.but will that b) attributable to church
contributions. Popular opinion outside
of the church may endorse the ball, but
sentiment inside tie church could not do
si. It was a matter before the christian
public; to them the speaker had ad
dressed himself. He bad nothing to say
to those outside. Christian people might
and should support the hospital, but tbey
should not do it in a manner that com
promised their christian character.

A SAD WARNING.
A Boy 1 Thrown from a Flat Car,
and Fatally Mangled While Doing
as he Had Right.
A sad and terrible death occurred in
the upper C , R. I . & P. yards about 8
o'clock last evening, which carries with
it an awful warning to beys who are in
tbe habit of mounting flat cars of coal,
and often times throwing off coal, to be
subsequently carried away and consumed
by the families of the boys so doing. The
occasion in question. Theodore Blixt,
fourteen years of age, was on a loaded
flat car, just above the Sylvan water
bridge, and immediately in tbe rear of bis
parents' home which faces on Third
ayenue and is No. 2503. The exact de
tails of the oat as trophy are not known to
any one, but there is good ground for the
belief that the regular switching was be
ing done under the supervision of
Night Yard Master Fry, and that the
car was struck by another flat car
pushed by switch engine 823, T. D.
Eagle, engineer, and the jar threw tbe
boy from the car aBd beneath the wheels,
two cars passing over him. He was
taken out as soon as the accident was
known, a shocking and pitiable sight,
both legs being ground and mangled to
the hips and one of the crushed limbs
bung only by a thin particle of flesh.
As soon as possible tbe little sufferer
was removed to his home, where tbe Drs.
Plummer and Dr. Barth attended him
and who at once saw that nothing could
be done but to administer chloroform to
deaden the sense of agony, aud the poor
boy lay in a semi-conscious state,
realizing however his condition until
t0:45, when he was released by death.

The following special from Washington
to the Chicago Tribune will be read with
"Congressman Gest hopes to add $35,
00 j to the appropriations in the sundry
civil service bill for the street railway
viaduct at the south end of the approach
to tbe Rock Island city bridge." He
says "tbe government owns and control
the bridge and approach leading from
Rock Island to the island. Tbe governs
meol owns tbe islaudon which is situated
the arsenal. Tbe commandant at Rock
Island arsenal, the city officials, and tbe
people in general of the city request the
United States to provide for the safety of
tbe people by raising tbe bridge at tbe
Illinois side and conducting a viaduct
over which wagons, carriages, etc., may
pass, and under which trains can pass.
The cost as estimated will be about $33,
000. Judge Gest says that it is an abso
lute necessity to the safety of tbe officers
and employes of the government and of
the cilitens at Rock Island that this via
duct be constructed. Tbe sundry civil
bill passed the house Tuesday without
the provision, but Mr. Gest will seek for
tbe appropriation in the senate."
A tpecial dispatch trom Washington
appearing in to-day's Chicago Timet
notes the receipt of resolutions from tbe
Rock Island city council and the Cili
zn' Improvement association, of Rock
Island, pertaining to the proposed via
duct and places the estimated cost at
35,384. Ihe dispatch also says that
Gen. Benet, chief of ordnances, has ex
pressed himself in favor of tbe viaduct
and deems it it an absolute necessity.
