Renewed Energy Arouses Loyalty of
Many Business Men
By Associated Press.
ST. PETERSBURG, Dec. 16, via
Eydtkuhnen, Dec. 17.— 1t is expected
that the government will immediately
promulgate a law of associations mod
eled on the French stntute as part of
Us fight against proletariat organiza
tions. The nhow of energy by the gov
ernment certainly has aroused con
siderable public sympathy, especially
of the business interests, which wel
come the slightest prospect of the
restoration of order.
The Bourse today responded to the
action of the government, imperial 4's
gaining a full point, closing. at 79 1-2.
The government is making a special
effort to secure the support of the
peasants in the coming elections, so as
to counteract the effect of the revolu
tionary proganda among the troops. It
Is also trying to improve the condition
of the railroad men and the post and
telegraph employes with a view to the
removal of material grievances.
Rev. Phelps Says a Christian Must
Be Held Down to Burn
"Where were the other nine? That'fc
the question our churches are asking
of modern converts. It is the question
that talent ulwayn aßks of mediocrity.
Bad company pulled one down, per
haps, and general indifference — who
commands more followers than any
other general— chilled the second. The
third was a sponge, one of those fel
lows who are always looking for some
thing for nothing. The fourth had no
go to him, anyhow. The neglect of
private devotion, indifference to the
rescue of those In Bin, and the engross
ing cares of business choked off Hit
gratitude of three more. Perhaps a
foolish Bense of Inability reduced the
ninth to a nonentity. The fewer the
talents, the more reason for making
the most of them. Shall a man throw
away a dollar because it is his last?
When shall we learn that God saves
this world by average men?" said Hey.
Arthur S. Phelps, pastor of the Central
liaptUt church, yesterday morning.
"This question is Jesus' comment on
the ten lepers whom he had Just
cleansed. New converts, like birds In
the nest with their bills open, all look
alike. An onlooker could not have told
which of the ten virgins were wise, and
which foolish. The crowds that
thronged Jesus could not have prophe
sied which of the disciples would revo
lutionize the world's thinking and
which would betray him.
"The true convert Is an independent
fellow. One against nine, their tuunta
are only like so much wind blowing
against his sails. The blind man, who
even did not know ills savior's name,
faced down the leaders of the orthodox
church of his day, when they called
upon him to denounce hi» healer in
fuvor of their traditions.
"lie was as humble In heart as lit.
was exuberant in expression. IK
threw himself at the feet of Jesus. Un
like the professed atheist who uses the
reasoning powers with which God has
endowed him to deny God'a existence,
he was man enough to thank his Cre
ator for his goodness, and that In deep
humility. A Christian, like a match,
must be held down to burn brightly."

Exalted Before Kings

Official Unable to Obtain Suitable Lo.
cation at Reasonable Rental.
Will Cost $10,000 to
Effect Change
"Happy New Year. Do you happen to
have that first month's rent of $600 in
your clothes."
Such are the seasonable greetings
that the city council will extend to the
library board January 1, as no effort
has been made so far to move the li
brary out of the city hall.
Librarian Lummis is doing what he
can to secure bids from owners, of
large buildings to accommodate the li
brary, but not many are willing to pro
vide the room required by the depart
ment at the. rental which the library
feel 3 that it can pay.
There are now but eleven working
days left in which the library board
can secure proposals for new quarters
and move the institution before rental
must be paid for the third floor which
it now occupies. On account of this
fact it seems practically impossible for
the library board to avoid paying at
least one month's rent into the city
treasury. The thousands of volumes
cannot be moved In leBS than several
weeks and members of the board have
estimated that it will cost $10,000 to ef
fect the change in location.
The cost of removal is one that the
library has not provided for and the
expenses for rent is another item that
the board had not expected would come
out of its appropriation.
"Thero are only two places where
this money can come from," said Mr.
Lummis. "one is out of the fund for
the purchase of new books and. the
other from the salaries of. the girls,
and I'll never consent to a reduction of
salaries to the . old scale, so: it must
come out of the fund for the books."

ful Sermon on Faith at Opening of
New Edifice at Twenty.Seventh
•nd Paloma Streets
Over $2000 was raised yesterday al
the Haven Methodist church, corner
Twenty-seventh and Paloma streets; at.
the dedicatory services of the new
church building, which were concluded
at the evening service.
The sermon preached at the morn-
Ing service was delivered by Ilev. A.
W. Adklnson, presiding elder of the
Los Angeles district, who said In part:
"We are living In the midst of a
universe of the visible and the In
visible, and we believe In the visible
by our sight and the Invisible by our
faith. We neo in our thoughts many
changes. The eastern forests change
their leaven to the autumn hues and
we know that in the spring the foliage
will be fresh and green. We see these
changes but we can not nee the power
behind them, which often lends us to
ask where It la In Its supremacy. You
say that moisture and various other
attributes cause the grasses! to grow,
but where is the power that produces
the growth. We have seen the de
struction of huge forests, but we can
not comprehend the unseen power that
caused It.
"Varied conditions wo see in life.
We enter into a flne residence In which
there ia serious illness, but there is a
tenderness and Godlike spirit prevail
ing. We enter another home, equally
beautiful, where there Is also illness,
and there is altogether a different at
mosphere. We may go to a home of
poverty and see therein harmony,
peace and love.
Should Be Worthy of Appreciation
"When we see the strangers on the
streets we say that there is a whole
world of ambition nnd burden and
there Is the visible and invisible In the
various conditions, and here the
apostle says that the things that are
seen are temporal, but the things un
seen are eternal.
"It 1b well said that we should ap
preciate what others think of our good
character, but übove all there should
be the assurance that we are worthy
of the appreciation. No man can pull
down our good character without our
consent, but a person who thrustn his
vile stories and vulgar songs upon
others should be imprisoned. The
■very essence of their vulgarity is con
taminating and hard to be eliminated.
Often some passage of scripture is
confounded with a silly thing and It
falls of its rightful purpose.
"We are writing history every day.
We may write It on marble, but that
will soon crumble. We are writing a.
history for all eternity. If good or had
works have been done, they will come
up before us again.
"Love wonderfully exists. The love
of a mother for her wandering son
never dies. The love of Jesus went out
to the disciples nnd love shines more
brightly where there is hatred. We
can almost see the soul of a friend
by his eye and hearty handshake.
They cause a thrill from the glowing
aoul of love. The soul will live and
shine more as the body falls into
decay.". . . .
Salvation Is Through Affliction
The presiding elder here gave a
word picture of the closing scene of
the life of Bishop Merrill and a heart
felt eulogy of the departed divine.
"We are not worshiping a dead but
a live Christ,", continued the. speaker.
"The apostle does not attempt to
soften our afflictions, but says that our
light afflictions are for the working
out of our salvation. There is glory
in this life and the life of the re
deemed soul.
"The things that are seen influence
those that are not seen, and much de
pends upon the environments for the
future. Let- us ask God for the tem
poral things that will mould our souls
for all eternity."

Charles J. Notter Broods Over Real or
Fancied Wrongs and Yields to
Impulse to End His
Troubles ■• '
Jealousy, money troubles and tem
peramental tnoroseness were the rea
sons given by Mrs. Charles J. Notter
for the suicide of her husband yester
day afternoon.
The reason for the Jealousy is the
most apparent of the three, according
to the opinion expressed by the police
men who were placed in charge of the
Mrs. Notter had, against the will of
her husband, gone out riding with a
friend of the family. Notter remained
at home and brooded over his, wife's
disregard of his wishes. When the
man's body was found it was propped
up on a sofa, and from the position It
Is believed that he had lain there think
ing of the real or fancied wrong done
him until he could endure it no longer,
when he fired the shot into his heart.
13. Baker of 826 South Hope street
was the man with whom Mrs. Notter
went out riding. He asserted that Not.
ter had suffered heavy financial losses
In mines in Nogales, Mexico, and thut
since he had the losses he has been
morose. I
Mrs. Notter declined to make any

statement in regard to the affair, as
she was prostrated by the terrible sight
which met her eyes when she stepped
into the room after her return from tho
pleasure trip.
Notter was employed by the Maler
Packing company of this city in the
capacity of adjuster and seemed to
nave a good position with the company,
which makes the assertion that he was
worrying over financial troubles when
he killed himself seem rather unlikely.
It Is mild by some of the neighbors
that Mrs. Notter Is not a domestic
woman, and the appearance' of the flat
in which the couple lived would bear
out that assertion, . as there were no
little feminine touches that distinguish
the home of the domestically Inclined
woman. .
The walls wero bare of adornment,
and although the flat was nicely fur
nished It might have been the room of
a pair of bachelors who only used the
rooms for the purpose of sleeping . In
Mrs. Notter Finds Body
Nothing whatever Is known concern
ing Baker save that' he was In Nogales
when the Notters were there and was
very friendly with Mrs. Notter.
The first intimation that Mrs. Notter
had- that anything was wrong., was
when she stepped into . the room and
saw tln» body ■of her husband lying
dead on the sofa before her. \ The
woman screamed and fell to the floor
ir. a faint; and Baker, who was with
her, rushed to see, what the trouble
was. He took her to a rooming house
close by and telephoned to the police,
who notified tliu coroner.
It Is believed that' Notter left a letter
telling the reason for his self-destruc
tion, but his wife refused to state
whether he did or. not. The body of
the suicide wan taken to Pierce Uros.'
morgue, and an Inquest will be held to>
duy, at which It is believed that addi
tional details will be brought out, .
