In Overalls, Her. 3. W. Waldron
Preaches Labor Sermon.
Standing Room Not Let at Meth
odist Church.
Says Capital and Labor Are Both
"NeedMoreStones andBristows,"
Declares Pastor.
In overalls, preaching in a church
from which many had to be turned
away because of lack of even standing
room, Rev. J. W. Waldron. pastor of
the Kansas Avenue Methodist church,
last night gave a talk to and for the
laboring men. A quartet also dressed
In work clothes sang.
The minister said that he wished
that there were more Bristows and
Stones in politics, and declared 'hat
the strife between labor and capital
which dated at least from the time of
the Pharaohs would not be settled un
til some leader arose from labor en- ;
vironment and showed his people the
best solution for all concerned. I
His sermon in part follows: !
"In the revolving period of time's
busy march, with its gisrantic ac
complishments, we have this great
question of 'man's inhumanity to man'
unsettled. It is not a modern question
alone, when the pioneer statesman of
history (Moses) looked down upon the
Injustice of an ancient Pharaoh, and
Fmote one of the leaders and drivers
with his strore arm and buried him ,
In the sand, till now we have been
battling: with this great issue and it ;
Is vet unsolved. j
"The worker declares in glaring
laneuaee that his rights are trampled
tinder foot and that no sufficient , re-'
ward is received for his toil. The em
ployer denies the charge. declaring
that the toiler is unjust, unreasonable j
and dissatisfied. j
"We can not afford to sit down and I
fold our arms, for the problem I have ;
spoken of can not be brushed aside.
Tn- masses will not allow men who
are siinposed to be leaders smile and
wink at the proposition any longer.
"Wrong on I?oth Sides.
"In the past justice has suffered
both from the working man and the
rich man and all because whenever
opportunity presented itseif they have
erected ereat God. and called upon
their followers to worship it. and the
name of that God is Selfishiness.
There never was a time when the lead
er of labor needed to rightly interpret
the Golden Rule as today. The suc
cess of their cause demands it.
"Great problems can not be solved
in a few hours or years. They re
quire the sacrifice, patience and strug
gle of decades. Xineteen hundred
years ago Jesus Christ touched the
world's heart with the thought of re
demption. It was a question of para
mount importance in the discussions
of the fliy, and many a despot trem
bled on his throne.
"Today the question that is forcing
Itself to the forefront is that of social
reform. It means that some man, cra
dled in the home of the laboring masses
must be selected to lead the world's
labor army out from the land of Mono
polistic bondage, into the land of jus
tice and liberty.
"Xo rear, need to be ashamed that
he is a workman. The worst and most
thriftless classes of human kind are
found at the extreme swings of the
pendulum, the ranging. worthless
tramp, and the arrogant aristocrat who
Idly rolls around in luxury, through
monev obtained by speculation, extor
tion or inheritance.
"A certain doctor was called to see
what could be done for a rich woman
who complained of insomnia without
any really affliction until the doctor
losing patience exclaimed: 'Madam, if
you would have a good night's rest you
must live on ten cents a day and earn
"eetl Men Like Stone and Bristow.
'What we need is more men in our
legislature who are in sympathy with
the labor vorld. in particular do we
need to send to Washington individuals
who s.re interested in the masses and
not in the clasets. I wish we had a
few more Bristows and a few more
Stones who think that there is a com
pensation coming to the laboring man
and work to get it.
Brothers mine take this legacy and
ppell it for Ihe afes to come: 'Whatso
ever ye would that men should do unto
you, so do ye also unto them.' Put
tills for a slogan on your banners:
'Make tae mission of my life felt in
every industry, drive out self.shness
and graft, justice and hypocrisy.' "

Drooping shoulders, hoop skirts, and a
dependent latitude for ,vomen have all
gone out of style, and the woman who
goes about "making a noise like a
Clinging v-ne" is now the one who
is conspicuous among a sisterhood of
straight-frort, clear-thinking, free
speaking wemen. A visitor of the new
order from Down East spent Saturday
and Sunday In Topeka, and Saturday
afternoon she made an address to about
a hundred women who were guests of

was born in Lynn county, and was ed

took her doctor's degree. She married
a Kansas man, who was also a gradu

She is the second woman, and the last

matics depai tn-.ent of Cornell, and the
second and last woman to finish the

that the amendment for the enfran
chisement cf the women of Kansas
would be voted on next fall, she offered
her help in the campaign, and she has
come to spend six or eight weeks in
the work without charge in this state.
She left Sunday night for Kingman,
and will spend a large part of her time
In the west and south parts of the
state. In her address to the women
at Mrs. ojhnstcn's party Saturday, she
spoke of the justice and expediency
of the measure granting the ballot to :
women, and emphasized the fact that
the men of Kansas were committed to I
suffrage by former acts granting wo
men the ballot in school, bond, and
