IN THE CHURCHES.
Dr. C. E. Taylor Treaches on Repentance.
His Hfimta at the Mrat Baptist Last
Xlcst the Fimt of a N-ile
At the Y. M. C.A.
A very large audience assembled in the
First Baptist church last evening to
near tne sermon on "Repentance" by the
pastor, Rev. C. E . Taylor. It was the
first of a series of four on the fundamen
tal requirements of the christian religion.
The text was from Acts XX 21.
"Tettifying both to the Jew, and also to the
Greek, repentance toward tiod and faith in the
lord, Jetnt chriet.'
ThiB is Paul's statement as to what was
the aim and purpose of his preaching durs
ing his three years' work in Epheeus.
There are many misconceptions of scrip
tural repentance; as confounding it with
penance, with penitence, with reforma
tion. It has been taught that it was
wholly a work of God, in which man was
passive a doctrine derived from oriental
fatalism and not the bible.
True repentance is really the second
thought after thought, implying that
epon rtileciion one has discovered that be
was wrong wrong in opinion, feeling
and actions, including also the idea of a
change of purpose. A reversal of the
moral determinations and intentions, is
accompanied by penitence and sorrow for
the sins of the past is followed by re
formation making right that which was
wrong, toward man and toward God.
Repentance toward God signifies that
one has upon reflection confessed
to himself that he has sinned against
God and neglected his obligations
toward Him and has proposed to confess
the wrong before Dim, and to henceforth
live in faithful obedience. While man
has the ability to repent, he has the abil
ity only by the aid of 'the Holy Spirit.
But the Spirit, as scripture clearly teaches,
convinces a!l of sin, of the necessity of
righteousness and of the necessity of
All mrst repent, either truly in this
life or by compulsion in the world to
come, but a repentance that is not volun
tary, is not true repentance and is un
availing. God's great persuasion to men
to repent is bis love in giving his son.
The ordinance of baptism was admin
istcred to a number at the closi of the
sermon. Others are still awaiting the
T3E Y. M. C. A. SERIES.
The lecture at the Y. M. C. A. rooms
was largely attended yesterday. Dr.
Taylor continued the subject of the work
of the Holy Spirit. Taking up the sub
ject of "Regeneration," he showed the
spirits' work in making a new creation,
not a remodeling or transformation, but
a new creation, renewed in the image of
God and having a capacity to understand
the truth. This is followed by the work
of the spirit in the btliever in cleansing
and strengthening and producing his on
fruits in the life of the believer. The
closing part of tbe lecture was taken up
with a consideration of the Bins against
the spirit which were mentioned and com
mented on and explained. With next
Sunday Dr. Tajbr finishes his lectures in
the course and will take for his subject
the "Enduement With Power."
at the sotrrn park chapel.
The regular Sunday night meeting at
South Park chapel conducted by the Y.
M. C. A. was well attended last evening,
and a number of young men in the neighs
borhood professed the Christian faith.
Next Sunday night there will be special
music by a quartette of young men.

The Modern Woodmen of America set

for medical services. Order 2,210 was is

Moline Dispatch says that "a private let

McEinnie here. Indicating that the doctor
and some friends will in all probability
institute a new insurance order, to oper

river. It is piomise i that it will be an
improvement on any order now in the
field in many ways " McEinnie is e video i

ins ftfter the progress of the electric

was as a whole progressing nicely, and
he expected that ; by April 1 tbe entire
electric system would be in full opera
tion. "We may get to going before that
time," he said, "but I feel confident that
April 1 will witness electric cars running
on all our lines. We have been delayed
longer than we expected in getting started,
but we have the satisfaction of knowing
that when we do get to running there
will be no hitch or delay."

WILL TBE COUNCIL INQUIRE?
Llkllhaod ef aa IavratigMie m ta

The Rck Island city council will in
all probability be called upon tonight to
designate a committee to make ioqu ry
as to the unbecoarng conduct of one of
its members, to-wit: in disturbing the
peace and dignity he is sworn and ex
pected to preserve and maintain. Aid.
Wm. Eer nedy . of the Sixth ward, is the
accused. That he is guilty of disturbing
the peace in bis attack upon Emil II .
Schmitten at the entrance to Masonic
temple Friday evening last he cannot
deny, but tbe further accusation is to be
preferred that Eennedy was then and
there aimed with a revolver, with which
it is said he was prepared to do great
bodily in jary if occasion so required.'
Between Eennedy and Schmitten,
who are both fellow har
ness rxakers at Rxrk Island
arsenal, b)tb brother Masons and both
leading members of the order known as
the American Protective association,
there had been ill feeling for some time
which of late has grown into bitter en
mity. Eennedy is said to have come
down town Friday night for the avowed
purpose of "doing" Schmitten and when
he met him at the door of the Masonic
temple, be struck him, knocked him
down and kicked him in the face. What
would then have followed but for the in
terfererce of that always existing guar
dian of peace and law the press wi 1
never be kaown.
The difficulty between Eennedy and
Schmitten has created great dissension in
the local assembly of the American Protec
tive association, and some members of that
organization are particularly indignant at
the proceedings described. Many citi
zens have demanded that tbe council
make an investigation of their members'
conduct and hence the probability of an
inquiry in te council chamber tonight.
THE MYSTIC SHRINE.

He Tell Abont it.
A great dtal has been said and written
of late about the Nob!es of the Mystic
Shrine an or Jer of Masanary which a man
must be c-o'hed with knight-hood before
he can enter. There are already a great
many Shriners in tbe three cities, but pro
bably all do aotknow to whom America
owes tbe introduction of this most mys
terious of n the various degrees of the
ancient fraternity. Nearly everyone,
howtyer, knDWs or has seen or heard of
the actor, W. J. Florence, w'uo is respon
sible for the existence of the Shrine in
America. Ecre is something he told the
San Francisco Call the other dy that
will be of interest here:
"It is true," admitted Mr. Florence,
"that 1 am the father of the Order of the
Mystic Serine in this country. The order
dates from the time of Mohammed, six
centuries after Christ. The sultan of
Turkey is no v at the head of the order,
and the precepts of tbe order are from the
Eorao, and ae to day the unwritten laws
of tbe Mohammedan tribes. While travel
leg through southern France in 1ST0 I
met at Marse.lles an old friend in the per
son of Yusef Cheere. tbe famous and re
cently deceased orientalist. Cheere was
by birih a Syrian, born at Mount Leban-
non, who had gained bis first acquain
tance with the Europeans at tbe English
consulate at Iseyrout.and was a high of
ficial in tbe Order of Mystic Shrine,
which be eiplained. I went with
Cheere to Cairo, and there, in an
Egyptian temple of tbe order, surround
ed by dusky Orientals, tbe only white man
in the solemn conclave, I received the
rites which mb.de me a member of the or
der. I then bad tbe ceremonies and
other formulae, translated from Arab c
into French and then into English, and
upon my return to this country the same,
explained the order to Dr. Walter Flem
ing, who soon afterward established the
Mecca Temple in New York City, th
first lodge of the Mystic Shrine in Amer
ica. One of this prerequisites to member
ship is that the applicant must be a 321
decree Mason or a Knight Templar.
which constitutes its only connection with
Masonry. There are now about fifty
temples of the order in tbe United States.
I bave. as a gift from tbe sultan the
bead of the order the decoratin of Os
mai a green sash with a narrow strip
of red down each outer edge, and a 7
pointed star of silver, with tbe sultan's
own signature engraved on a gold plate
in tne center.
