THE WASHINGTON TIMES. SATURDAY, APRIL IS, 1914.
Efficiency in Christianity
Is Motto of "Billy" Sunday
The Evangelist Applies Business
Methods to Religion and His
Revivals Are Scientifically
Here is a story of how the
wheels go around in a Billy Sun
Nothing so carefully planned and
svstematically worked out in the
way of a revival has yet been at
tempted. Efficiency has been ap
plied to religion.
This article goes behind the
scenes of the great mass meeting.
and likewise relates the dozens of
simultaneous gatherings in smaller
groups during Sunday's campaigns.
A study of Sunday's methods is
a study in organization. Each
phase of his work is in charge of
an expert. The whole is as per
fectly dove-tailed and as smooth
running as the operation of a big
A perfect religious machine. Effi
ciency applied to Christianity. Evan
gelism reduced to an exact science.
These are phrases by which Billy
Sunday's campaigns most frequently
Taks the old-fashioned revival. It
came into town, having been adver
tised fiom pulpits, among the church
goers, whom It was not intended to
teach, gathered interest as it went
along, and left with the loose ends
X Its xesults for ministers to gather
trp as best they might.
IX Billy Sunday were engaged to
come to Washington one year from,
this month, advance men would be
here as soon as he accepted the ln
Yitaticn to look over the ground. X
tort of stock company would be
formed, and enough pledges obtain
ed to guarantee the expenses of
erecting a tabernacle, of paying the
Sunday party's fare here, and of pro
viding them Quarters.
Needed $18,000 Is Scranton.
In Scranton $18,000 was needed for
this purpose. In many places the
sum has been less. These pledges
are not paid. They only serve as a
guarantee fund, so that churches are
aot assessed In case the revival falls
to pay Its own way. Collections are
taken from the first meeting to de
fray these expenses. And never yet
has Sunday been compelled to call
upon the guarantors to cover any
part of theexpenses of his meetings.
Washington, would be divided Into
districts. In Scranton there were
nine districts. Here there probably
would be twice that many. For a
month before Sunday's arrival pray
er meetings for the success of his
campaign are held In each of these
districts nightly. District commit
tees are organized. A religious cen
sus of each district is taken. The
meetings are thoroughly advertised
among all classes of citizens, with
emphasis on those the church does
not normally reach. Newspapers
are used as the main publicity
Meanwhile personal workers are
being solicited and trained. Com
mittees on building, ushering, enter
tainment, nursery, decorations, and
numerous other phases of the work
. are organized. They not only are
formed but their members are coach
ed thoroughly In the work they are
A Matter of Salesmanship.
Sunday believes in making his
meetings fit the needs of the par
ticular community in which he is
working. He does not appear with
a "free for all" invitation, and a
"let come -who will" message. Sal
vation, In his opinion, is a matter of
salesmanship. It must not only be
be offered to obstinate holders-out
against Its influence.
"Go ye into all the world." lie will
tell you, applies Just as much to the
fellow next door, or in your office,
pr in your club, as the benighted
heathen. The former, he will re
mind you. is often as far removed
from personal contact with the
fhurch as the Zululander.

but five cents apiece for luncheon
and afterwards they are invited up
stairs to hear Miss .Miller give a
talk which she repeats for each
succeeding group as they come in.
Attendance at these luncheons
ranged from five, in the earlypart
of the campaign In Scranton, to
1,500 after the first week.
Goes Into Factories.
In manufacturing communities
Mrs. William Asher nas charge of
the work in factories. In Pittsburgh
she succeeded in organizing flout -ichlng
Bible classes in Fcventy-nino
factories. She also is qualified to
deal with reformed women, and it is
she who lends a helping hand to
those who forsake the red light
districts to climb hack into the
walks of decent living.

HOW BILLY SUNDAY
RUNS A CAMPAIGN
His advance agents form a stock company in the city to be visited,
a year prior to revival. They obtain pledges to cover costs of
erecting a tabernacle and paying expenses of the evangelist's

Workers are trained to take charge of the building, nursery, decora

Bible class meetings are held in workships, factories, stores, and
schools under the direction of Miss Grace Saxe, Miss Frances
Miller, Mrs. William Asher, the Rev. L. K. Peacock, and othr
aides of the evangelist.
The ministers and church societies co-operate with the evangelist
and continue the work inaugurated by him during the campaign.
and almost always have received the
warm support of employers.
Another phase of Mrs. Asher's
work Is the training of personal
wcrkers. Her meetings include the
hospitals, where some of the most
sturdy Bible classes have been or
ganized among nurses, who cannot
leave to attend outside meetings.
Mr. Peacock also attends minis
ters" meetings, and he acts as a sort
of clearing house for the business of
the revival as It touches the work
of churches. He also works among
the lodges, all of which in Scranton
have attended the meetings In dele
gations. The Masons marched. 2,500
strong, to one meeting. Special res
ervations are made for these bodies
of lodge men. as well as delegations
that attend from factories. These
are the only reservations of any sort
made at the Sunday meetings.

Sunday's meeting is the music Ho

In Scranton it numbered 1,000 voices.
But long before his coming a local
conductor is engaged, and the choir
is trained In singing militant, stir

Work of handling mall during a

Though Jt Is Impossibly for Mr. Sun
day to give personal attention to the
letters that pour in. running from
203 to 700 a day, Mr. Ackley reads
all of them.
Many of these are begging letters.

IN CLEANUP WEEK
Washington's third annual "clean
city" campaign ended today.
Results show it to have been a decided
With less dirt to deal with, more was
removed during the week than in either
of the previous crusades.
Hundreds of tons of refuse, gathered
from cellar and garret, back yard and
vacant lot, have been carted to the
city dumps. The exact' number will not
be known until the reports of the con
tractors are received next week. Last
year 6.600 tons of refuse were removed
during "city cleaning" week. The num
ber this year, according to Dr. Arthur
L. Murray, secretary of the committee,
will iargel oxcd last year's record.
Co-operation Brings Success.
"The success of the campaign." said
W. II. Richardson, chairman, today,
"is due not only to the members of
the clean-city committee, but to the
citizens' associations the pupils of
the public schools, the Boy Scout f.
and the thousandb of householders
who have labored so zealously in the
"Without the hearty co-operation of
these agencies.the work of the com
mittee would have amounted to lltt'o.
i Housekeepers are realizing more and
! more everv year that the 'clean-city
' campaign' is conducted primarily In
' their interests, and each year they are
. contributing more to its success. The
1 thanks of the committee are due also
to the Street Cleaning. Health, and Po
lice Departments, all of which have ren
dered bplendid service."

N. Y. MARKET DULL
NEW YORK. April 18,-Tho stock
market opened active and lower. Sup
port was again lacking, and as many
actlvo stocks struck new low records,
sentiment was decidedly depressed. Le
high Valley was off Y. and Reading lost
l'i during the first few minutes. Th
lower price level established since the
beginning of the week, coupled with
fresh liquidations, was responsible for
tho general weak tone.
Missouri Pacific, which declined 6
points yesterday on heavy selling from
some mysterious source, began at 19U.
for a gain of . but at the end of twen
ty minutes this advance had been lost.
The low point touched by this issue
Friday. 18H. was the first time ia twen
ty years that it had sold at this price.,
Toward the end of the first hour more
spirit was shown, and the technical po
sition of stocks appeared to be good.
The market closed steady.
Among the initial declines 'were: Unit
ed States Steel) : American Can, 1;
Union Pacific, i: southern Pacific, :
Amalgamated Copper, H: Anaconda, ;
Chesapeake and Ohio, T4; -Erie, ; Le
high Valley, M. and Eroctt-
The curb was heavy.
Americana in London were heavy on
lack of British support and- on selling
orders cabled from New York. Weak
ness of Americans In London was at
tributed to the Mexican situation.
