time , having been delayed for that length
of time by an accident In Mexico. Tho.party
traveled In a special train of Wagner cars ,
having three sleepers , a diner , a tourist car
end ft baggage car. Thcro were eighty-six

After greetings had been exchanged the

waiting and were quickly carried to the
exposition grounds. The main court wan v.'s-
Itod tlrst and as the full beauty of the
buildings burst upon the visitors there were
many exclamations of astonishment and de
light. They declared with great emphasis
that the sight far surpassed their expecta
tions and piled the escorting committee
with questions. President Wattles explained
the names of the buildings and the general
plan of the -grounds to all and then the

The Milwaukee Sentinel of February 17
prints the following interesting reference to
the recent effort to secure a photograph oC
Lamprecht's painting , "Mnrquotto Discover
Ing the Soured of tbo Mississippi , ! ' which Is
to form the subject for the dcalgn on the
1-ccnt stamp of the special scries to be
ibfiued by the Postofllco department :
"Onuba's Transmlssisalppl fair Is to be
commemorated by a special series of postage
etamps resembling In a general way the
Columbian icmio which was engraved In
honor of the World's fair. As this latter
ccrles was composed of a number of typical
tableaux celebrating the discovery of America ,
BO the former is to embrace scones charac
teristic of the exploration , settlement and
development of the great northwest. Among
those thus chosen Is Lamprecht's famous
painting , "Father Marquette Discovering tCio
Source of the Mississippi , " of which a graphic
sketch may be found on the flrsj page of this
Issue. The faculty and students of Mar-
quctto college are now treasuring this beau
tiful canvas with Increased Interest and
prldo. This picture forms the only ornament
of the austerely simple llttlo reeeptlcii room
nt the college , and next to the few relics of
Father Marquette himself , It la the tiller
treasure of the Institution.
"Tho picture was pointed by an ortlnt
named Lamprecht , who lived In Covlngton ,
Ky. , at the time , about 1S09 or 1870. The
coirnilsslon wes given him uy the Peter
Claver society of Cincinnati , which Is In
terested In the education of colored people ,
the donor being a wealthy resident of that
city. From the Peter Claver society It passed
into the possession of tbo late Father La-
lumlrro of St. Gall's ejmrch of Milwaukee ,
to whom it was given for the now Jesuit
college which hnd not then been established
F&ther Laltimhro , In his turn , gave the
painting Into the keeping of the father rector
and the faculty of the college.
"A si do from the historical Interest at
tached to It , the picture la a noteworthy
otic , for the artist. It Is said , painted the
scenery from sketches made by himself at
I'ralrlo dtt Chlen. The colors are soft and
rich and the poses of the Indians and of
the missionary priest spirited ones. It is
a rather Interesting bit of gossip that the
model for Pero Marquette was Hev. Father
Wonlngcr , n well known Jesuit priest of
Cincinnati. The Marquette fathers are not
* "A-o sure of this , but they are ready to
neaort positively that tbo cloak and , hat put
into the picture were certainly Father Wen-
ingcr's very own.
"Tho relics of Father Marquette ere ev i
more Interesting , both to devout Catholics
nml to students ot history , though Father
lluschart of the college is very careful
about not claiming their entire authentic
ity , only offering certain letters us proof.
The relies are not oil public exhibition ,
though forming ono of the chief features
of the college museum.
"They consist of bits of .bone . and pieces
of wood and Iron gathered from the ruins
of the log chapel of St. Ignaco by Father
Juckcr , who , wishing to ensure their safe

Conalderlntr the uncertainly of life , I
would like to plnco my collection of mt-
morlnlB from Father Mnrquetto'd grave In
good hnndH , nnd knowing of no other plnco
where they would be better appreciated lhan
In your collcse. I offer them , through you ,
to that Institution.
My Intention In taking thcBC memorials
with me In leaving St. Ignnco two years
ago wan to keep them unfo ( whatever I left
behind me there has disappeared ) until such
time when nn appropriate monument would
bo erected on the spot where they were
found and then to deposit them there. lut )
now It appears that the form of the monument
ment already ordered to bo erected by my
successor In St. Ignnco Father Klllnn la
such that whatever may be deposited therein
will have to bo burled In the ground. Hence ,
when that oo'J father Insisted on my de
livering up to him what I possessed of
Father Mnrntiettc'H ( reputed ) remains I sent
him but one-fourth of the fragments of
bones , together with a small collection from
the divers articles ( pieces of evidence , ns
wo might call them , ) round In the cellar nnd
In the grave. I thought It a pity that the
whole collection should bo withdrawn from
sight , perhaps forever , nntl partly to pre
vent further molestation , but principally to
secure Its preservation In a more appropri
ate miinncr , I made up my mind to dlspono
of the greater part of the collection an said
Will your reverence then please let mo
know whether the reverend father rector and
the faculty of your college are willing to
receive that collection as a sacred deposit ,
to be preserved In that Institution ?
Should circumstances (1. ( e. , tlmo and
money ) allow mo to go to Milwaukee , I
would prefer to bring that treasure thither
personally , nnd might on that occasion an
swer any questions about the significance
of the several articles contained In the
collection , aa far an my ability goes.
Very respect fully nntl sincerely , your rev
erence's humble servant ,

accompanied the relics when Father Jacker
found that ho could not overcome "clrcum-
fitrciccs" sufficiently to permit his taking the

Here are. all the bonoa left , after sending
similar fragments to Father Klllan of St.
Ignnco. lie Insists upon having them all ,
but I shall refer him to you , but I would
think It n pity to have them burled again.

will be devoted exclusively to the use of
ladles. At the four corners of the building
nro to bo situated four court yards , each
23x23 feet , 'n. ivvhlch 'will ' , be growing Colorado
Work on the building will bo commenced

"Tho trip to Honolulu la ono ot the raos
delightful that car be taken at this eeaaon
ot the year , " cald Fred A. Nash , genera
wMtcrn agent of the Chicago , Milwaukee &
St. Paul railway to a IJeo reporter yesterday
after a'olx weeks' sojourn there. Mr. Nash
line returned to Omaha an enthusiastic be
Hover In the arnexatlon of Hawaii by the
Unted States , and docs not liosltato to de
clare that within a very few years those
felanda will form one of the strongest com
mercial centers In the world. Mr. Nash
was accompanied on this trip by hie niece
Mies Adeline Nash , who received marked at
tentlcii from the American colony at Hone
Speaking of the delights ot Honolulu , Mr
Nash said : "If I had had my boreea over
there I don't suppose I should haVO' been
homo yet. There la no need for a good roads
movement over there. The roads are the
finest I o\cr traveled over. For miles atli !
miles they are built ot solid macadam , ntul
It's a real delight to drIVe over them. It Is
a great country for fine bicycling , too. The
excellent roads have been built by the gov-
elilmcnt. and It kccpa them In good condition
all the time. There ore not' many good
hortca over there , although some of 'tho
Americans have brought over some from Cal
ifornia. But most of the horses are llttlo
things , something llko Indian ponies. A
grotesque picture la presented by some ol
the tall natives riding the 5 little ponlca
through the streets at top speed.
"The courtesy and hospitality of the Hon
olulu people Is piovciftlal and the reputation
Is fully merited. The natives are moat po
lite , and the Americans , Germans and Brit
ons who have settled thcro have to a con
siderable extent adopted the manners of the
natives. They have a number of pretty cus
toms. For example , nt a dinner party there
Is always seated bdhlnd n bower of plants
a natlvo orchestra , the music of which Is
something very much like that of nn Ameri
can mandolin and guitar club. During the
entlro ' .meal the musicians not only play
but sing soft and sweet airs with charming
effect. Another pretty custom Is that of
decorating guests nt the dinner with floral
wreaths ; they do the some when a guest
leaves the Island. Before the steamer leaves
'thcro ly a largo assemblage about the wharf ,
the native band plays a number ot selections
and each departing guest Is well nlh cov
ered with pretty wreaths ot the fairest
"The Hawallans are not an Ignorant people
ple , as they arc sometimes represented to bo.
The beet way to secure a good opinion of the
Islands and their Inhabitants Is to visit there.
While I believe the native race there Is fasi
becoming extinct tCicough Intermarriage with
the other racw now there and other causes ,
the natives are not such bad folks. They nro
an easy-going lot. It a man has $1 , he will
npcnd 75 cents for a _ carriage to rldo a short
distance. He will prefer to walk tomorrow.
But they are becoming educated. Englhli
Is taught In the schools , and contact with the
Americans , Germans and English Is doing
much to elevate tbem. To me It ccenis their
lot Is analogous to that or the American In-
dlcn. It's a case of the survival of the
fittest , and In the due course of tlmo the
pure natlvo of Hawaii will have completely
"A trip to the Islands and some personal
Investigation of the conditions there will con
vince most any reasonable person of the wis
dom of annexing the Islands. They are valu
able , and they are going to be taken timlcs
the wing ot some great power ooancc or later.
The people there largely favor annexation
by the United States , but If tuey cannot bo
annexed to the United States they will bo
to sonic othcf nation. Japan ntands quite
ready to annex the Islands today , and when
one eays Japan he should not think of a
weak power. It's a sorry fact , but It's true ,
that Japan has a stronger navy today than
the United States. United Stateo naval of
ficers arc not decrying our own navy , but
several oC them who crossed on the same
ship with me admitted Japan's superiority
In naval resources. The United States nceJn
a coaling station In tbo Pacific ocean , and to
my mind thcro U none better than Hawaii.
The cruisers of today ccanot go long with
out coal , and the chance to obtain a valuable
coaling station Is too Important to bo over
looked. But the trade of the islands -Is the
principal argument In favor ot annexation
Commerce that amounts to over $20,000,000
per year at present and U bound < o be rapidly
Increased la certainly worthy of some con
Fiflj-Srcoiul Aniiuul Ilt-jiort.
There are two Intereatlng topics discussed
In the .fifty-second annual ropwt of the Con
necticut Mutual Life Insurance company ,
printed today the Interest standard and the
taxation of life insurance. Both will claim
the attention of all who arc concerned with
this Insurance question. Sixteen years ago
this company became convinced that 3 per
cent was as high a rate for calculating pre
miums and reserve an could bo safely as
sumed , and It adopted that rate , ul'lio < igu
other companies criticised this action aa a
confession of weakness. Now many other
great companion are adopting the same policy.
This Illustrates the wisdom , conservatism ana
protective policy of the Connecticut Mutual
company , three strong features of the com
pany's methods. The president also dtact'v&cs
the question of taxation of life Insurance at
considerable length. The figures of the buil-
neflB results of last year arc highly catls-
ractory , while the condensed statement of
ttjo company's business for Iftv-two yenrs Is
Instructive and Illustrative of .ts superior
business methods , which ccrtiln'y excel those
of any other life Insurance company.

The new system of Sunday mall delivery
which was Inaugurated at the postofllco yes

the old plan the party after mall stepped
up to ono of the carrier's "windows and gave

brought all the mall to the window , where
It was delivered. The new1 plan required
each Inquirer after mall to wrlto down Ms

nished at the window of the superintend
ent of carriers. Ho was. given a card , upon
which ho was told at what carrier's window
ho was to apply for hla mall. The card
and the slip ho left behind him were num

carrier upon whoso route the address was

was called ho stepped to the window and
received his letters and papers. The chief
object of this new plan was to prevent any

In a tcrmon on "Some Practical Trutha
and Applications ot the Sunday Question'
Hev. Howard MacAyeal of the Plymouth
Congregational church yesterday morn'i.g
spoke in strong advocacy ot the closing o
the exposition gates ca the Sabbath. Ho
strongly Intimated that If moral suasion was
not sudlclcnt to Induce the exposition di
rectory to clcso the gate * on Suulays the
law would be- Invoked to compel them to do
EO , presumably by the minsters of the city
According to the preacher such legal action
can bo brought under the Sabbath law of the
ntate. He admitted that this at the prescn
time Is almost a dead letter , but he strongly
Insisted that It Is uncnforccd solely througl
careloEfciowi , arid not because It Is void or be
cause the people really desire to have It taken
off the statute books. Moreover , he said that
ho had taken the trouble to learn the opinion
of lawyers on the matter and had fouad thorn
to bo of the oplnlca that without a shadow
of n doubt the exposition directory \vouU
bo violating the law If It opens the gates on
Sunday , charges admission to the grounds
and keeps people nt work on the grounds
on that day. Ho ild that If It was necessary
nctlctn would be brought under this law to
prevent such vlolatlen. While speaking on
this matter the preacher ssld that he had
written to The Dec for Its opinion as to
whether the opening of the expedition would
bo within the limits of the law. He took
occasion to publicly thank The Bee for the
courtesy with which the qiicatlcn had been
answered hi the editorial columrs , but In
sisted that his porltlcri wn3 well supported
from the fact that It did not say whether or
not the matter carao within the Intention ol
the law. but stated that the question would
have to bo decided from the bench.
THUSTS TO THE DIUECTOUY.
The preacher thought that the directory
would hardly dare to act Illegally , but ha
laid even greater hopes upon the Christian
characters of the members. Ho said that
after flu Investigation he found that fully
thirty of the directors were officers of evan
gelical churches deacons , elders or trustees.
They had been ordained under an oath to
obey the laws of their churches , one of which
Is common to nil. That provides that they
shall exclude from church membership Sab
bath breakers. The preacher did not uelluvc
that these directors would break this oath ,
but that they would rise up In nrilJ.i If any
attempt was made to break the Sabbath by
keeping the exposition opca on Sunday. If
they did not , he paid their names ought to
bo published ta all church papers and they
should bo diJchargcd from their offices. Ho
stated that If they were thirty ministers and
voted for the opening they would' ' bo dis
missed within thirty days from their pulpits
by their congregations
The preacher also answered the argument
that the exposition should bo kept open In
order to allow worlclngmcn to see the show.
Ho said that It had been widely advertised
that the exposition Is not to bo an Omaha
show , but a broad transmlsslsslppl pxposl-
tlon. How many laborers In the transmlssls- .
stppl region will bo prevented from seeing
the exposition by having the gates closed ,
on Sunday , he asked. Only a very few
those located In Omaha and yet It was
contended that tho. exposition Is not to be
an Omaha show.
These remarks concluded a sermon which
exhaustively covered the Sabbath question ,
considered from a standpoint other than re
ligious. The preacher said In the first place
that it has become the unanimous opinion
of physicians in this city and elsewhere
that a day of rest is essential to the phys
ical well-being of man. He then proceeded
to show at some length that such a rest
day Is as essential and beneficial to the
BEAUTY OF SUNDAY CLOSING.
He said that In the first place the Sunday
or day of rest advances the Intellectual and
moral health of the people. Ho pointed out
Lhat the greatest students of the social
problems of the day arc admitting that the
jxistlng Intellectual and moral tone of the
republic Is the dlrrct outgrowth of the strict
observance of the Sabbath by the Puritans.
Again , ho asserted that the prosperity In
abor and business is based largely upon
.ho observance of a day of rest. In support
if this assertion ho quoted from reports of
'orelgn commissions sent to Investigate the
causes of the prosperity of this country and
hey all pointed out that the rest day or
Sabbath had much to do with It. A third
benefit Is found in the advancement of
moral virtue and character. The minister
quoted from Dlackstone and Do Tocquevlllo
o support him in th's assertion. He said ,
too , that the observance of the Sabbath Is
moro effective police protection than officers
of the law. Finally , the preacher said that
ho observance of the Sabbath benefited civil
Iberty and free Institutions to a large do-
free and read from Adam Smith and Jeffer-
lon to sustain the statement.
The preacher continued to the effect that
the rest day has become a natural right of
nan from custom , having been observed by
all countries In all ages. Being a natural
right , It to a natural law and It devolves
upon the Htoto to see that Its people enjoy
the right. It was in this that the speaker
'ound ' reason for the Sabbath laws that
exist on the statute books of the state.
In the course of his remarks Mr. 'MacAyeal
referred to the Maine disaster , saying that
f It was finally discovered that It had been
connived at by the Spanish government , Ii
could bo traced as a resurt ol the Spanish
nonotsorvanco of the Sabbatli or day
ot rest. He said that when the Spanish
were at their height they wore a noble people
ple , but that they declined and obtained
heir reputation for treachery after the rest
day was practically abolished and given
over to amusement.
COMMON SKXS13 IN IlEMGIOV.
Hev/Dr. Mnnn UUcotirncn on One of
( lie WenUiU'HHcH of tlic Church.
At the First Unitarian church yesterday
morning Rev. Newton M. Mann preached tea
a largo congregation , his subject being "Tho
feed of Common Scnso in Heligion. "
Ho said that predominant sentiment
n all ancient religions had been fear. Ter
rorized for uncounted thousands of years
) y dlro conceptions of the superhuman pow
ers , this sentiment had become a fixed char
acteristic , persisting * In the race long after
letter conceptions had been reached. Thus
ho work of every founder of a better faith
lad been overswept1 by a tldo of inherent
endenclcs , perpetuating certain barbaric
ancles Into an age-nvhcro they did not 0)0-
ong. In this way Christianity had been
corrupted by an infusion of pagan Ideas
and customs , and these In modified form
still persisted in creed and ritual. Thla
lad notably happened with the Idea of God ,
ho old pagan fancy predominating , that Ho
a a terrible being -Into whoso hands it Is a
errlblo thing to lull. All misfortunes
ho death of a frlond , a fire , a wreck , a
destructive storm or an earthquake , people
commonly take as Indicating his animus
oward them. These dreadful calamities are
so eteadlly referred to as "dispensations of
'rovldenco" that wo have come instlnct-
vely to fee ) that ot all events a dispensa
tion of Providence' was the worst. One
would like to escape from auch a power ;
but 'there ' 1s no escape. Ono was sure ul-
Itnitcly to "fall into His hands ; " all that
was left ono was to have recourse to tbo
saints and tbo holy virgin , who were said
o bavo had scuie Influence wltb Him , and
o His Son , who , like Pocahontas , had
brown Himself between the great Avenger
and His victim , "but , unlike Pocahontaa , to
receive a folow which even a _ Powbatan
would not deliver. Here wag a notion of
God descended from conditions more prlml-
.Ivo than that In which the Virginia Indiana
were found by the first white sottlen.
It la In the picture presented ot "tbo
other world" that a terrorlim ot the Al
mighty U chiefly exerclied. There the great
majority U to Buffer continuously cud epd |
Icsily extremities of which hero they only
got a taite now and then. Thli In A no
tion which had surprisingly wide currency
yet , considering that It had not the slightest
bvldcnco to rest on ,
TERROR'S SWAY IS WEAKENING.
Wo had tetter got rid ot superstitious
fear before ; wo can make much progress.
Fiunklln had tricked the lightning from the
clouds only when the old terror of tlio "bolt
ot Jovo" had been quieted. Steam power
Is fltlll a caged devil to most Chinamen ,
with which they wanted llttlo to Jo.
"Desponding fear , of feeble fancies full ,
\\enk nml unmanly , slackens every power. "
Terror of religious authority has kept re
ligious thought for centuries from making
any headway. People have simply been
afraid to Inquire. At length , however , this
fear gave way and then began the marvelous
progress of religious Ideas which Is among
the puprcmo distinctions of the century now
drawing to a close. Substantially the whole
of the wldo knowledge now reached con6crn-
Ing other religions than Christianity has
been gained by the generation to which wo
belong A knowledge which has revolution
ized our Ideas of the barls of religion In
general. In the same tlmo has been
achieved the wonderful triumphs In biblical
criticism which have shown us what the
blblo is , as well as what It Is not , made It
Intelligible from beginning to end as the
work of human hands , and giving It the In
terest ot a now book.
"Theso are great gains , " said Dr. Mann ,
"but lamentably , only a few s yet partici
pate In them. Wo boast much of the light
of affairs , and TYO boaet with reason , but as j
much cannot be said of the religions situa
tion. In the churches on Sunday the talk
Is mostly of n character that would seem
smitten with that form of insanity which
runs to childishness. It Is best described
as Insanity with the V left out. Its most
obtrusive feature Is Its lack of any feature
at all Its monotonous shallowness. Wo
miss altogether the virility that gave n cer
tain relish oven to the absurdities of the
fathers. Evangelical piety presents every
Indication of having passed Its prime-
dropped Into garrulous senility. Dvcn Its
sensationalism la effeminate. Such glory as
It had Is departed. This Is a bad spectacle ,
hut It Is the natural result of living up to
the theory that reason is not an authority
In religion. "
HOW TO ISSCAl'H AVItATIl TO UOMI3.
Ilr. riii'lits PoliitH Out < h - IVny for
.lien 1o Ksciiiic.
The men's meeting nt the Young Men's
Christian association rooms yesterday was
very largely attended , and deep Interest was
manifested In the address delivered by Dr.
Phelps of the Omaha Theological Seminary.
Ilia theme was "Him That Cometh to Me I
Will in No Wlso Cast Out. "
After Herod had beheaded John the Bap
tist , Dr. Phelps explained , Jesus and the
disciples crcsoed the Sea of Galilee , wlicro
they might mourn John's death in quiet , but
thousands of people followed Jesus , not wishIng -
Ing to let him out of their sight. It was then
that Jesus performed the miracle of feeding
this multitude with the few loaves and
flshea Filled with wonder at a man who
could perform such a marvelous deed , the
people threw themselves at Jesus' feet and
wanted to crown him king , but Jeaus re
buked them and escaped Into the mountains.
They had sought him with too low a motive
nd worshiped him not as the Son of God ,
but as a wonder-worker.
"Our coming to Christ cannot be a bodily
coining , " eald Dr. Phelps , "but must bo a
sprltual coming. The- offer of bclvatlon is
continually held out to us , and there la no
sot place where wo can receive It. Men find
Christ in all sorts of places. Frauds Mur
phy , the great tcrapemicc worker , found
Jiaus In prison at Portland , Mo. , and Jota
B. Gough bowe-J to him. on Mt. Blanc. "
Dr. Phelps urged that the reading of the
lilble and praying cannot save a man'o soul.
Such a course la an effort to get oalvatlon
without Chrlet's Intervention , rnd this is
mpcsslble. It a man desires to bo saved his
first step should be to accept Christ.
Tb condemnation of God , said Dr. Phelps ,
rests upon every man , and the only way
: o escape this condemnation Is to accept
forgiveness through God's sen. Many men
wait till some future time , thinking they will
be better prepared' ' to come to God , but they
are wrong no time is as good aa the present ,
nml such an Important step should not be
dcIayoJ , for life is uncertain.
