the ways in Avhich we make better boor than
rdtul xw they make in the East or the West

The editorial Pas as follows
You may fancy that I march up
to this point In my career with con
siderable eagerness The past weight
ed with the memory of rather rough
traveling over partially unblazed
trails Is receding ami n futuro radi
antly bright looms Into view The
church to which I go is rich In his
torte heritage and richer still In the
burning desire to stamp the coming
day with the Impress of Its superb
Christian ideals
And yet I do not go eagerly For
here In Ogden my three babies wore
born Here was my first church
Here I touched the hands of hun
dreds of cloanllvod clearvlsloned
young men and women for whoso
earnestness and enthusiasm the
world Is patiently waiting Their
high standards have boon to me a
source of constant encouragement
The new age has nothing to fear If
all Its leaders are to bo fashioned in
their mould I hope the years will
not rob me of their names or of the
happy memory of our association to
Here too In the midst of ceaseless
struggle for what 1 thought was right
and best I caught the light that shone
In the eyes of mon and women who
had seen tho vision find had breathed
the air of the newer worldnow
truly Gods and more justly mans
those who dreamed of bringing moral
order out of disconsolate chaos
Hero from week to week I have
had the rarest of fellowship with my
brother ministers We have differed
In many ways But we were all
struggling to make men understand
the royal privilege of service That
has bound us together And In this
church I have found life that was
life Indeed life that would be
strength and hope to even worthy
Tonight I am standing in this pul
pit for the last time The years have
slipped away all too swiftly Perhaps
1 have made my message sufficiently
plain Yet there are some things I
want to say In this closing editorial
My chief work in these five years
has not been that of an agitator or
a reformer In xpUu of my reputation
My chief contention has been that re
ligion is something real something
that vitalizes life something which
inspirits something which makes
men hate evil as well as love good
something which rives mankind a
vision of the better world
The better world In the vision Is
free from all thuUmars and weakens
human life Thi ipresent world then
in order to become the better world
must be rid of Die institutions which
mar and weakcnuhuman life So It
is one comes ton program Involving
hitler antagonism to all weakening In
stitutions There aro some things
honest men cannot hand down lo suc
ceeding generations
I have no quarrel with other denom
nations save agl they exalt the lesser
to the greater place To teach the In
dhidual that his own souls welfare
or his own bodys welfare Is of para
mount importance is to mo thin
rent cirme of modern paganize
Christianity All the philosophies
that have had their day and ceased
to he lingered on that unholy ground
We have no right to sacrifice Chris
tianity to that ideal
I have not sought to justify the sins
of society but to reprove them I
have tried to say that upheaval can
not come with platitude that conven
tional Christianity was only pretty to
look at that the liberalism which Is
mostly a matter of wordy boasting
Is as bad as the orthodoxy which
does the same thing that the temper
ature of onos enlhuslasm need not
be taken every ten minutes
I have Insisted that in the last
analysis manhood alone counts that
life was more than a drinking bout I
that no man has a right to fritter It
away I
I have pleaded for a new frontage
toward man and toward the universe I I
and toward God I have stressed the I
supreme things of lifeGod Christ
hope love service righteousness jus
tice I have emphasised the oppor
tunities of the privileged and have
tried to make those who had the abil
ity and the slrcngth want to serve
with their ability and strength I
nave tried to point out the path which
shall lead more and more unto the
lerlect day
1 have endeavored to tell men they
must be forever searching their souls
that it is no great thing to say we
have come to minister unless we
have something to minister
I have earnestly pleaded with men
not to offer their Integrity or their
honesty or their morality in the open
market not to sacrifice courage and
independence for gain of money
I have protested that we were to
irould the times and not the times us
There is a warrior spirit In the
Kingdom of God There Is an heroic
aspect to the Christian life It has
been purpose to exalt them
We cannot thank God for what I
makes life easy and comfortable but
we do thank Him for what makes It I
difficult and great
The world slands most In need of I
high hope and a deeper longing after
the things of God

I have not changed one detail In
the program
The highwaymen whoso activities
Saturday evening started a small
sized panic among many who had I
yet to tcturn to their outlying homes
have been captured and have con
SUBsoil to their crimes
Ono of the men Is a Cherokee In
I dian by the name of Bill Rio and his
companion id Frank Bell a negro
The arrests wore made by Patrolmau
Bell was the first man arrested and I
ho was then under tho influence 01
Iquor having hastened to the near
est saloon as soon ns a division of
the loot Irom their first victim had
been mode
The Cherokee evidently startd out
on a lone hunt lor moro plunder aft
er separating from Bell and within a
I few minutes encountered a young man
i ear Twentyfourth street who pluck
lly snatched away his revolver ana
H gan snapping It at his retroatlnt
form It was not bag bofore the In
I dian was gathered in and within an
hour ho had made a confession He
was also anxious to make arrange
ments for returning the money to his
ictlms with a view of being released
I as soon as restitution had boon
I The gun which the young man se
cured from the highwayman was ex
I hibited at the poiice station and
jTovod to bo about the poorest ox
1 cuse for a deadly weapon that has
I turned up In Ogden lor man a day
lit Is a small HZcallbur single action
and so rusted that It could not only
be loaded but would baffle the most
expert gun man to discharge It Why
the fellow ran away from the harm
less weapon can only be explained on
tho supposition that his wouldbp vic
tim might throw It at him
Bell and Rio claimed to be broth
ers Immediately after their arrest but
after the police had gotten them thor I
ouxhly angered at each other the truth
was soon forthcoming The Cherokee
uas told that his partner Bell had I
said that he was a common blanket
Indian from the reservation and could
hardly speak English This so en
raged thc follow that he immediate I
ly denied that they were brothers and I
admitted a number ol things whlcn
the police were anxious to learn II
Bell was then told that the Chero
kee had informed them that he was
nothing but a no count nigger and I
that he had tried to cop the entire
amount of money taken from the vic
tims him colored highwaymen Im
mediately became Incensed at his
former pal and declared that he had
riven the Indian 7out of the 0 I
which they had secured from Lough
gren the Insurance man whom thev
robbed at the Utah National bank I
Tho men will bo kept apart until
their arraignment on the charge of
highway robbery
Much credit Is due Patrolman Her
rick for his lucky capture of both I
men They were apprehended In
Electric alley about an hour apart
each evidently having made for a sa
loon as soon as they Had obtained a
few dollars for drink The police
state that they saw both men In a
Twentyfifth street saloon about an
hour before the first holdup and that
one of them was slightly intoxicated
at the time Thdy advised the fellow
to go home and requested his pal to I
see that he followed the advice They
left tho saloon and were not peen
again until the first holdup i I
