Y. M. C. A. SAVES TAFT lM
The splendid influence of Y.M.C.A. was never better proven tharis
in the moral regeneration of Taft. Not Taft, his excellent^. But
Taft, Mont. A year ago this camp was one of "the toughest places
imaginable, in fact, men of experience in that line said it was easily
the toughest place on earth." A year ago it had one store, 26 sa*
Joons atad an undertaking establishment. This showed the apparent
needs of the population. Two years ago Taft did not exist but game
into being as the result of the construction of a great tunnel on the
C.M. & St.Paul R.R. with a population of a thousand men. This Home
Herald, Chicago, gives the story of its redemption as follows:
"The Y. M. C. A. has attacked, similar problems in other places
with success,but even those who knew its work discouraged any attempt
at Tatf. The town they said, was too tough. In the face of this well
meant advice Mr. Morrison, a secretary of the company established
pleasant and attractive Y.M.CA. rooms. Up to this time the men had
been cashing their pay* checks at the saloon, there being no other place
to cash them. Mr. Morrison arranged with a banker in a nearby town
to undertake this business. On the next day, the money was shipped
into Taft,and Mr.Morrison, armed with a revolver, rode with it from
the train to the camp. There he cashed the checks, encouraging the
•men to leave over all surplus funds with him for deposit in the bank.
The result Was that over $2,000 was left with him,all of which,
in the regular "course of events, would have gone over the bars. Opi
position grew hot against him, of course, and on two occasions the sa
loon keepers caused his arrest on the charge of carrying concealed
weapons. At other times they threatened his life, and a threat „is no
idle thing in Taft, where the melting of the snow each spring discloses
the skeletons of men killed during the winter. None of these things
deterred him. however he continued to fight the liquor element and
urge the strict enforcement of the laws. With the aid of the sheriff,
who stood at his side with drawn revolver, he gathered a company and
held .meetings before the most notorious resort. In spite of the piano
inside and the jeering crowds in the windows, the Gospel finally con
quered men and women were drawn out of the houses to gather about
the cart which served as a pulpit,and more than one found eternal life.
"The great test came on Christmas of last year, when the camp
was given its first birthday. So certain was the foreman that the ma
jority of his workmen would be incapacitated for labor thru drink,that
he took the precaution of ordering 200 extra men to start work on the
twenty-sixth. Gamblers, prostitutes, and boot leggers flocked into
town in anticipation of the day. But Mr. Morrison was ready for
them. On the night before Christmas he held a meeting in the camp,
and talked the matter over with the boys. Then, after prayer and a
brief speech, they pledged themselves to fool the whole crowd of dev
ils by boycotting the town on Christmas. A tree was arranged in the
camp, a phonograph played during the day,and Mr. Morrison showed
pictures in the afternoon and evening. The result—wonderful to
every one from the superintendent down—was that only two men out
of the whole number were unable to report for work next day, and
the gamblers declared in diBgust that 'there was not enuf money spent
in Taft to pay for calling a quorum.'
'•Those who approved the experiment said,'Don't preach religion
just make yourselves useful to the men.' But it was preaching which
the men wanted. They said to Mr. Morrison time and again, 'Don't
close your meeting, partner,until you pray for us.' It was the dis
tinctly religious element in the work which made its success pos
sible. Taft has proved again what needed no proof, that there is "no
other name under heaven by which men can be saved.'
The success of the work in Taft and in other construction camps is
causing the Y. M. C. A. to spread the movement to all the camps in
the country. Contractors recognize the value of the results.in sobriety
ahd fitness, and better work that thgy are liberally contributing to this
end. '.'i-
Which means that Watertown would he immeasurably benefitted
by a Y. M. C. A. And we nee&f§ Vr
Why can't we have it?
In spite of appearances the world IS growing better The fact that
evils are brot to light proves that the moral consciousness is getting
sensitive to evils that have existed right along, all the more virulent
because hidden. It does seem sometimes that much of the work of
reformers is in vain. Mere reform always has failed.to accomplish
vital results. The reform must be so far reaching and sink so deep
into the heart and action of things as to become revolutionary, before
there is anything doing. That's the kind of reform the world needs,
a complete revolution in religion, industry and all else. Religion and
industry are at the base of things, and the time is not distant when we
shall see a wonderful difference in the handling of industrial world
problems, as a consequence of this impending change. They will be
handed from the point of view of reciprocal co-operation. Production
will not be for profit alone, as it now is,but for the benefit of the race,
to supply all men's needs, not to create profits for a few. Men will
not ruin their fellows for profit in those days, because the element of
profit will be largely if not altogether eliminated and it will not pay
to damn men's souls, as it does today. The true profit is in doing good
and, the highest joy comes from service. These are high ideals, but
the world is growing be+ter. In the knowledge of this We can take
courage and keep on. We heard a man, and a minister at that,say the
other day that the world was growing worse right along. Shucks!
There's more scum coming to the surface, true, because the gopd stuff
is at work beneath and will surely complete its work. There's more
real good in the world right now, than there ever was at any period of
its history, and it is growing better all the time.
The judge made jokes, the witnesses looked weary, the counsel
declaimed and cross examined, the tewlve good men and tru« twid
dled their thumbs and the usher ushed whenever necessary. Altogether
it as a model court.
"Now, ma'am, cried the cross examining C," was the defend
ant's air when, as you allege, he promised to marry yon perfectly ser
ious or was it, on the Contrary, jocular and full of evity?"
"It was all ruffled, replied the plaintiff, "with *im runnin' 'is

Wonder what god they worship at at St. John's, Washington? Judg
ing by the price, it seems that Mammon is It. The golden rule has
little chance for exercise under the rule of gold. But there's one
consolation for the poor man, mofley can't purchase entrance into the
Kingdom, of God.
