Capt Mabee Saya That Salvation
Army Has to Do Work of
Many of thos(? who heard Capt. W.
B. Mabce of the Salvation Army,
speak at the court house last night,
said that the effort was ono of the
strongest and the address one of tin
most pleasing, that they hud ever
heard. C&jit. Milbee made a groat Im
pression upon his hearers and he
gave them a clearer Insight and a
better understanding of what the Sal
vation Army han done, ia doing and
hopes to do, ?han any ol' thfOn had
over had before, lt was a magnificent
Th?' speaker said that when tho
present plan of 'work was first con
ceived no one thought of what, im
mense proportions it might ultimately
attain. Ile Raid that 4.*i years ago
the entire Salvation Anny plan was
under thc hat of one man and that
man was working in the famous
Whlto-chtypel neiglt?borhood of Lon
don. He soon found it necessary to
feed the men who flocked to him for
asHlBtauce and for giving ansi.- tanca

tries 'id officers to the number af
10.000 are located in all parta of tba
world. The local officers of the army
who correspond to the officials ot a
church, reach a sum total of ovar
50,000. The Salvation Army has 25,=
OOO bands, which give their time free
for furnishing music to aid the or
der and the soldiers, recrulta and ad
herent? of the order must reach well
up into the millions, although Capt.
Ivihbee said that he did not have any
dfinlte figures at hand
!He then took up the question of
tho great difficulties encountered In
tho work, referring to the fact that
the great body of workers come from
the saloons and other kmiy walks of
life, though there are many recruits
in the ranks from the cultured clas
ses. Another difficulty which .baa
been encountered, according to Capt.
Mabee, is the slowness with which the
officers and leaders of tho work grasp
the Ideas and Heads of the work. He i
said that much more if ould be. oc
oomplhmed In a much shorter length
of tune If lt were possible to make an
wouid, but said tnat the churches
