made by Mayor John So Branaford thus
far but I f expected that aeftral more
will be made this wek Harry Mercer
now a clerk In the city treasurers of
fice has been named aa humane officer
for next year and Dr S G Paul will
b the next health commissioner i place
of Dr M R Stewart
And in the passing of Dr Stewart one
of the most picturesque health boards In
the history JctUlu w become a

Some Changes
I is believed by Mayor Brausford and
a few others however that with Dr S
G Paul at the helm things will change
Thf appointments of J T Raleigh as
street suprvr Tom Hobday as su
perintendent of waterworks and Frank
Matthews as land and water commis
sioner will probably be made this week
by the mayor
Councilmen T R Black and Lorln J
Wood have been two very busy officials
for a few years trying to detach the
scalp of Raleigh but Black f now out
of the way and the street supervisor
does not have much fear of Wood Not
a few little traps have been laid for Ra
leigh which he has refused to walk Into
I was rumored about election time
that Prank Matthews would resign as
land and water commissioner S several
others started after the job which il
rather a soft one for eleven months out
of the year But FVank said he had
been misunderstood and has talked over
ben weather several times since election
with the mayor winding up with an in
quiry regarding the land and water com
missioners Job Wherefore It appears
that Frank Is still keen for th job He
wli probably stay
Mayor Bransford has not dropped 1
hint as to the next city engineer but
there is every indication that it will be
A F Doremus and that the present
city engineer George O Chaney will
drop tack to principal assistant Cha

Frank Wiliard whom the police believe
of safecrackers
to be implicated with the gang
crackers that have been operating in Salt
Lake for some time and WhO rooms
were raided Saturday in which a lot
of burglars tools were found
The detectives are not ready to give out
any information regarding the finding
ay the tools and the arrest of John Phil
of tools and Phillips
lips The quantity tl PblUp
were found in a room somewhere in the
business district but the exact location
of which the police refuse t dIsclose
It 1f believed that the police have ev
idence which leads them to believe that
the room where Phillips Wa arrested was
the headquarters of an organized gang
hedquarin s
of safe crackers and yeggmen and until
they capture the other members of the I
gang are keeping its location secret

Commercial Club Committee
to Act After Circulation
As soon as committees composed of res
ident of the districts lying without the
city limits to the south have completed
a canvass now in progress and secured
the necessary signatures to petitions
seeking annexation they will meet in conference
ference with the promotion committee of
the Commercial club for the purpose of
perfecting the plan of action which will
bring these districts into the municipal
ity before th next census is taken
The Commercial club was asked for its
assistance in bringing about the exten
asslnc bring aut exen
sion of the city limits a short time ag
and the matter referred t the promotion
committee of which W P Cooper is
chairman After consulting with those
favoring the annexation ofr th outlying
districts it was decided that these resi
dents should first secure the necessary pe
titions before the club took up its part
of the definite work T petitions are
now nearly complete which ask fo the
extension of the city limits to at least
Twelfth South west of State street and
the joint meeting of the committees will
be held at an early date

Prof J E Talmage Reviews
History of Name Given to
Origin and right t the title o the
Church ofsr sus Christ of featterday
Saints was the general subject of an ad
dress given by Professor J K Talmage
at the afternoon session of the Salt Lake
stake conference at the Tabernacle yes
terday afternoon Special Christmas mu
sic was given by the choir and C W
Klbley presiding bishop spoke briefly on
the Mormon belief In Christ and the im
portance attached to his mission on
Professor Talmage began by outlining
the form of organization maintained by
the church in its division into stages and
subdivisions of wards with the various
officers in charge of the work These
officers he said including the president
of th church held their positions t
which they were appointed according to
divine revelation only at the acceptance
of the people of the church and they
might b rejected by the people who
would then take the consequences This
the sneaker said constituted an organiza
tion founded on true principles of democracy
racy a illustrated by its nam The
Church Saints of Jesus Christ of Latterday
At the time of h resurrection Profes
sor Talmage said Christ appeared to the
people on the western continent and es
tablished his church and made known
his wish that inasmuch as I was his
church i should oe known by his name
Again in the nineteenth century when i
the night of the great apostasy was
over the question of a name fo the
church came up again when I was founded
e by Joseph Smith There were other
churches at that time b said which bore
the names of Luther Calvin Wesley and
others and these churches were named
after great and worthy men who were
in every sense servants of G Then
he said there were other churches such
as the Presbyterian Methodist and episcopal
copl which were named for some tea
ture of their organizations
Did you ever stop to think that until
th advent of Joseph Smith there was
not a church on earth bearing the name
of Jesus Christ asked Professor T
Question of Names
He said if the church be Luthers
church Luther should not b robbed of I
the rightful honor and the same with
rihtful the Uesleys if the churches
were theirs they should bar their names
but if the church b Christs i should
bear his name In the same manner he
sid all those who followed Wesley Cal
vin or Luther should b with their i
churcnes but those who followed Jesus i
Christ should align themselves with his
church He said if his church was the
church of Joseph Smith i should be called
by his name o if it were Brigham
Youngs church i should bear the name
of Bsigham Young
I Profesor Talmage said there was lit
tie mystery about the theology of the
Mormon church for its members believed
that G was just as tangible 8 any on <
in th congregation possessed of a body
a real a any one earth and one from
which the body of man was patterned
a perfected being of the same race as
that to which b and his hearers be
longed He said the Mormons did not
believe in the metaphysical force which
some c led God The Mormon belief h
said was that man was more than mini
and matter for he also possessed a spirit
and I was the purpose of the church
to develop ard improve mankind along the
three lines physical mental and spiritual
He spoke of the bodies of men 8 the
graduation robes of the school of life
which would b assumed I the after life
As to heaven and hell Professor Tal
mage said no Intelligent mind could accept
cept the belief that there were only two
divisTtnn Tor classes unto which mankind
couTa be divided and when th accounts
were run dvie the divisions mde
sm with a small margin either way
some would b consigned to eternal punIshment
sme con81
ishment and others to eternal reward T
fact that God never made two human
beings alike he said bore out the claims
of the church regarding different degrees
of exaltation in after life
Reverence for Master
C W Nibley said he thought the name
of Jesus Christ was one which the Mor
mons more than any other people re
vered and adored and th people of the
church believed implicitly that Jesus
Christ rose from the dead and that he
shall reign king of kings anil lord of
lords forever and ever He said th Mor
mons more than any other people used
the name of Christ in opening all meet
ings with prayer in his name Children
were blessed and the sick administered
to and morning and evening prayers were
all offered in his name Although bap
tism ofer the name of the Trinity M
Nibley said nearly all of th ordinances
church were performed
of the Mormon wee prormd
in I the name of Christ He said the Mor
mons revered all of the prophets both
ancient and modern Esekiel Isaiah
Abraham and Moses were named And
the Monnone
so in latter days he said Monol
revered Joseph Smith a a great prophet
perhaps the greatest of all Brigham
Young and other leaders o th church
he said were held In reverence but when
i came to comparing them with Jesua
Christ he said the other prophet were i
if not insignificant of far less importance i
than Jesus Christ
The choir sang the anthem caNing
Star and Hallelujah the Lord Omnipo I
tent Reigns The opening prayer was
by William Asper and th benediction was
pronounced by D L Davis

Salvation Army Providing Ne
cessities to Many Families
in Actual Want
The want and privation of the poor and
destitute has been intensified with the
chill of the winter and the charitable la
bors of the Salvation Army have been
materially increased during the last wek
From two to four and five destitute fam
ilies have been given some measure of
relief from their pitiable condition each
day of the week and some of the In
stances coming td the attention of the
Army officers have been of a unusually
serious nature
In one case both the father and mother
were lying upon the sick cot lacking nec
essary care and nourishment while the
family of little children sat around the
bare room shivering from the chill and
crying in their hunger The distress of
the family waj relieved by the provision
of fuel food medicines and comfortable
clothing The suspension of some of the
laboring work on account of the cold
weather has caused suffering among the
poorer families dependent gn the wage
earners dally income for subsistence In
several of these cases th Army workers
have been able to procure other employ
ment for the men while giving temporary
assistance to the families
Te Salvation Army will mark the corn
ing Christmas with a mammoth tree
which Santa Claus has agreed to pay
special attention to age Yuletide
visit to Salt Lake Ensign Thomas Pits
has already prepared a list of more than
600 children of poor families who will
b invited to the tree which will b given
at the Army hall on East Second South
street Christmas night The admission
will b by ticket and those will he dis
tributed among the children during th
present week Each day the kettles
will be on the prominent street corners
for the purpose of receiving the contri
butions of the passing citizens who wish
to see Christmas cheer brought to the
noor children
Fifty children twentyfive boys and
twentyfive girls to he slectd by the
Officers of the Salvation Army from
among the more destitute fmirs will la

The Rev Mr Paden Draws a
Lesson From a Practical
Subject Text
The Rev William M Paden in his dis
course at the First Presbyterian church
yesterday chose an unique subject for his
sermon The Spirit of the living Crea
ture to the Wheels The following ex
cerpts show how the subject was made to i
teach a lesson I
< This I an age of wheels or machinery
We carry wore wheels in our vest pock i
ets than the ancients carried in all the I
pockets of their civilization There la
more mechanism in a sewing machine
harvester or locomotive than in all the I
laborsaving appliances of antiquity This I
is also a day of organization The or i
ganization of our republic is as com I
pared with tl at of ancient Rome as that
of on of our locomotives compared with
that of one of Caesars chariots of war
and the organization of one of our great
mission boards is to the aggressive ma
chinery used by St Paul as one of the
coasters on which he sailed when com
pared with one of our great ocean steam
ers 01 as his postal facilities compared I
with our great international system
As I believe in the superiority of our
age a compared with all preceding ages
I believe in the value of wheels and or
ganizations They are one of the indica
tions St a high type of life As a man Is
more highly organized than an earth
worm his very frame being a combina
tion of cords and pulleys and lev rs so
ideal society must be more highly organ
ized than mudeating savagery The day
of individualism is past the day of col
lectivism ha come We cannot make tb >
most of our opportunities in any othr
way When gold was to be picked up in
the streams individual gold seekers
might make good wages each going h
own way but the day of placer mining is
wellnigh past In these latter days the
richest results must be mind and crushed
out of the mountains and to get thse
results we must have organized com
panies with expensive and powerful
plants we must have combinations of
men and machinery And this is more or
less true of the church especially In th
great centers of population To gt the
best results we must have efficient church
plants matter = d y strong communions
Spirit In the Wheels
But wheis and organizations are not
enough Tiiv spirit of the living creature
must be In the whe l otherwise the best
organization may be as inefficient a a
dead ttigin an incubus in the way instead
stead of a thing of life to help us on We
must have life s well a organization I
we do anything worth doing with our
wheels And Wi do well to watch the life
element most carefully The defective
work of a society or organism Is often
due to this vital deficiency The fault I
not In the machine but in our lack of
power to U I Dont break up your en

We must not mistake wheels and or
ganization for spirit sometimes thy in
dicate the very dpposite Theres an
mgnliant gibe at Philadelphia which is

townsman while contesting with a Bos
loiiiaii as to the comparative merits of
he two cities clinched his plea with the
imiiipliant assertion But you must ac

HId han Boston
Huh exclaimed the Bostonian just
wait till Boston is as dead as Philadelphia
and wv will lay It out just as beautifully
Now I have known churches in which
the t work was laid out like a cemetery
vin > 1ay schools which rattled through
riiK lime with the precision of Yankee
lucks and Endeavor societies which were
at once as lifeless and lively as a puppet
how You could find no fauit with the
rganizatlon but the spirit o th living
creature was not in the wheels
Real Work Count
I doesnt take much power to make
the wheels go round as long as you do
rut gear them down to real work You
may make your social meetings ast lively
as I case of St Vitus dance or a merry
goround or make the wheels spin like
an oldfashioned thresher fed with wisps
but hr > v much cornea of it You may
make your union meeting as brilliant as
a Christmas tree or your anniversary as
showy a an exhibition of tissue paper
posies and yet deceive no one a to the
utter saplessness and lack of vigor The
main thing the one thing needful life
is wanting The form being empty there
is no power Our verv activities declare
our weakness our fellowship degenerates
to so much chatter Newness of life is
the only hope But once Gods spirit is
pulsing through the souls of a community
once the spirit of life is in the wheels
slier will palpitate with power
the very Ile wi wih pwer
Yet you v t not be too hard or ar
tificial or wooden meetings The con
ventionalities of society have their own
LIttle place in your fellowship I is
someitmes necessary to give your wheels
a turn to find out that your machine is
a in working order An order of service
is worth what it cost as a fly wheel to
set or keep things going a rollcall may
limber up joints even though it some
times seems like a game of perfunctory
leap frog And I is sometimes necessary
to brighten d devotional meeting by
sowing i over with shining texts or fas
tening good fruit to its various branches
by stirring up men to their duty by pww
tals or coaxing good people to teach m
give Such an exhibition of life shows
good spirit somewhere but its blossoms
and fruit have usually but little relation
to the twigs thy art tied to
Must Keep in Order
The very complexity and efficiency of
a machine or organization only makes it
the more Ineffective when it gets out of
order or the power runs low An engine
may be crippled to uselessness by one
broken cog a whole mill may come to
a standstill through trouble with the en
gine a whole community may b left
unprotected through failure of courts and
executives a whole church may suffer

becomes if it get away A runaway
wheelbarrow would hardly be accounted
clangorous but a runaway locomotive is
apt to play smash Some of you may
recall the old magician machine in

instrument of church distraction than

Christ church the moment the good

Spirit in E Everything

with the most primitive means without

we can do little worth doing
most approved methods and strongest as

with a poor organization than poverty
of life with a good organization A strong
soul will do more with the body of a
dwarf than a weak soul with the body

declaration Few ministers do better
work however much better their kit of
tools Good tools do not make a me
chanic or superior method of church
work a superior church worker A poor
method well worked often brings better
results that a good method worked poorly
We depend after all not upon the wheels
but upon the spirit of the living creature
in and over them
You have my message or rather the
message of the Inspired prophet Your
various societies and social circles are
cogs in a great and good organization
Such organizations as th Sunday school
the womens societies and the various as
sociations of the young people n r effi
cient helps to the church We rejoice in
the thought of their widereaching deeD
reaching growth Such associations If
wisely guided and kept full of the spirit
of life make the church of Christ a com
munion of saints they make the visible
church a visible communion of visible
saints But with your mighty opportu
ames you must look to the Lord of Life
otherwise instead of wheels strong as
