The tirst of the mwtinjrs in the in

nork in this city under the leader
ship of Rev. Frank Husscll. 1). 1)., of
New York, was held last evening in
the Christian church, with a large
audience present. lr. Russell sjoke
eloquently on the subject, "The Un
reached. " In substance he sai 1:
In discussing the religious condi
tion of the community, thei e arc
only twi, classes ln-fore us. There
are no high or low. no learned or ir
norant. there arc ml v those w in are
unreached of the gospel living with
out its hope and mainly in jra erless
homes, and the church people who
have the gospel and are trying to
realize it in their lives.
The I ii reached .
First The unreached. -the liinst ap
palling feature of this clas i.v their
utter separation from us; we cata
logue their children with our o-vn for
the public school, seeking that they
may be ti!lel by a common edu.-ation
for common American citi.ensl io; in
commercial relations we desire to
trade with all daises: in political re
lations we are dialing after everv
possible oter that he may vol.? with
our party: but when that day comes
but once in seven that emid aies
our religious life, the chasm opens
and the unreached go their wa with
out the gospel, while we go 10 the
churches of Christ for our son-'. ami
worship and instruction.
Another severe feature which de
mands our attention is their great
numbers: the unreached out co int us
and out vote us. Still in this natter
we have great encouragement. In
1S:) we had one nominal member of
a nominal church of Christ to everv
1-1 of the population: in 1S.VJ v e had
one to every seven; in 1 s7 one to
every six; in 1SSJ we had fne to
every live; in lstf;) we had one to al
most every four. In lTyO whei Tim
othy Dwight became president of
Yale, there were but 11 'J students,
only two of them were prof 'ssins;
christians, among these 110 there
were two organizations, each of them
named a Tom l'ayne society; things
have changed since then and vast
ly, for the better, still not over
10 or 15 per cent of the young
men of cur land are members of
Christian churches; there are over Go
per cent of the college men if our
land that are members of the Chris
tian churches; with one nominal
member of a nominal chur.h of
Christ we have three who arc not.
this one is set with his class of three
to bring them into the kindot l. Is
he so charged with responsibility
and with evangelistic etlicienc that
he will probably succeed? In 1J of
our largest cities it is not o'ie in
three, but one in 13 or 14. enough
for everyone to have a goodly bible
class". Is this average one lik'dv to
succeed in bringing the 13 or 1 1 into
the kingdom ?
In 1X90 it took more tlu n l."
church members on the average,
throughout our land, a straight 1:
months to win another: that kind of
warfare must surely be unutirf: ctory
to everyone of us.
When we look at this unreached
mass with something like an : naly
sis we find between i'O and . ) per
cent of them on the average, who
should be in our church pews imme
diately; they would come for th ask
ing and a little opening of the way;
they are accustomed, or once were,
to prayer-meeting ways, to Sunday
nchool instruction, and, likely, to the
communion of the church.
Keaaons for Lapulu.
The doctor spoke at some length
on the reasons for lapsing, ht lding
that Satan could do more by putting
a straw in the way than a astor
could do with a crow bar; soim- be

The Supposed ltepreMenta:ive ot the J.S.K.
Road Not rieaied Witti the Impression
He Made Here.
According to a .Davenport paper,
A. Henry, who spent some time in
Uoek Island last summer, sup
posedly in the interests of the Jack
sonville Southeastern road, has writ
ten a letter to V. C. Wadsworth, of
that city, in which reply is made to
a proposition to co-operate in the
Uoek Island terminal project. Mr.
Henry goes on to say that in his
estimation the J. S. K. will not go
into the terminal scheme, "but I
think." savs he "if the city of Rock
Island would grant them the fran
chisethey askedlast spring they would
build as then stated. Otherwise I
understand they will build up Rock
river to I'ort Byron Junction. The
Rock Island people have not kept me
posted in their moves, have heard
nothing from them since last July,
and we look on this terminal scheme as
a scheme to keep the J. S. K. out of
Rock Island. The majority of the
frontage was signed but the Im
provement association never present
ed it to the council to have ordinance
passed. A city with so little enter
prize about it as this deserves to
have a railroad give it the go-bv. I
have no more time to fool away with
the people of Rock Island. Ii they
want the road they will now have to
do the work themselves.
Hmv Henry i)iet KusineHs.
In reply to Mr. Henry's howl about
Rock Island, written so considerately
to a gentleman in Davenport, it may
be said that if the licople of Rock Isl
and had taken up the matter them
selves in the iirst place, they might
have hail the road by this time. In
stead, Mr. Henry attempted a still
hunt here for what he wanted,
until he found his mvsterious way
of doing had aroused suspic
ion and caused a reaction against
him. and then he went before
the Improvement association, and
asked that body to help him out.
Notwithstanding, however, that Mr
Henry's own course had handicapped
any work in the behalf of the J. S. E.,
the association took hold of the mat
ter and diil what it could for the pro
ject. It may be said for Mr.Hcnry's
benefit, too. that Rock Island needs
no advice from him as to what shall
constitute enterprise, and it is a haj
py thought to know that he has no
more time to "fool" away with the
people of Rock Island. It would
have been better for the J, S. E.road,
had he had no time to fool" away
here iu the first place. This "fool"'
business of Henry's has placed the
road where he claims it is in its re
lations to Rock Island.
Rock Island desires the J. S. E.
road. It will welcome it most heart
ily and do all possible to secure its
entry into the city. We can but be
lieve that when moved by any de
gree of seriousness the road will send
a different kind of a representative
than Mr. Henry to advance its interests.
A IMeusant Time at i A. K. Hall Lat.t
The entertainment given by John
Buford post, G. A. R., and the
Women's Relief Corps at its hall last
evening was a very enjoyable affair.
The programme was opened by the
singing of "Marching Through
Georgia"1 by the audience, led by
Prof. L. C. Dougherty, Mrs. Dough
erty accompanying on the piano. A
nuartctte composed of L. C. Dough
erty. J. T. Noftsker. J. A. Johnson
aud J. V. Robinson then rendered
"The Soldier's Farewell," after which
Master Milton Jones recited "The
Nigger and the Bee."' This was fol
lowed by a piano solo by Miss Ethel
Dougherty, after which the
Misses Coyne and Wilcox and
Messrs. Johnson and Ehiners ren
dered "Come Where the Lillies
Bloom,"1 in a very creditable manner.
Miss Emma Battles then gave a read
ing from the Pickwick papers, after
which Mrs. H. C. Marshall rendered
a charming piano solo in an artistic
manner. Little Mattie Jones then
captivated the audience with two
pleasing selections. A. C. Woodyatt
rendered a pleasing solo, accom
panied by Miss Clara Deisenroth on
the piano. The evening's entertain
ment was closed with a 10-minute
talk by S. W. Masterson, which was
followed by the delicious spread
served in royal style. A neat sum
was netted bv the entertainment.

Yesterday Afternoon's Fire on Forty-Third
Street More Protection Needed.
An alarm of fire at 4.55 yesterday
afternoon from box 72 at the corner
of Forty-fourth street and Fifth ave
nue gave the central companies a
long and hard run. They made ex
cellent time for the long distance,
but before their arrival the roof of
the building had ' fallen in and

auything to save it. It was a 2
story frame dwelling located at 430
Forty-third street, owned by James
McCann and occupied by W. J. Bled
soe, a conduc tor on the Rock Island.
The fire was caused by a defective
flue, the roof being all ablaze before
the family and neighbors discovered
it. It w as at once seen that it would be
impossible to do anything with buck
ets, and the attention of the neigh
bors was turned to getting out the
household goods. All the goods down
stairs were gotten out. but on the
second floor the work had to be aban
doned, as the roof icll in with a crash
A I.nng Delay.
It was about 25 minutes after the
lire w as discovered before the depart
ment arrived, the delay being caused
by the turning in of the alarm and
the 2-mile run of the trucks. In the
meantime the lire had burned with
unabated furv, the house being
almost a total loss. Streams were
turned on and adjoining property
protected which was being endan
gered bv the high wind that was
blowing. The house was valued at
$1,000 and the furniture, upon which
there is no insurance, represents a
loss of $300.
More Fire Protection Needed.
