THE RICII3IOND PALL.ADIU3I AND SUX TELEGRAM, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 18, 19lO. ORYAII WILL FACE A HOSTILE CROWD No Cordial Welcome Waits the Peerless One at Capital on Wednesday. MEETS "SHOW ME" PEOPLE IN HIS CAMPAIGN THROUGH RUR AL INDIANA WHERE PROSPERI TY J S EVIDENT ON EVERY HAND IS CAUTIOUS. r Palladium Special! Indianapolis, Oct 18. Met during the first few dayi of bis campaigning In Indiana with conditions which gave the laugh to hla arguments and with uapicioua attitude upon the part of that section of democracy which is supposed to stand by him, William Jennings Hryan comes Wednesday in to the heart of his enemies' country when he enters Indianapolis. It was expected he would get the warm hand and a good old-fashioned welcome in the smaller towns where he made hit campaign debut He "has thus far drawn fairly large crowds but of a pestiferously InquUltlvo character. When on Wednesday evening he mounts the same atand In front of the English opera house which Col. Roose velt graced with, hia presence, Bryan will confront the city democracy, the materialistic, organization type which has generally ostracised him. He will confront the democracy of big busi ness and the Interests which has no use for the ethereal, the theorizing far-western democracy. Farmer Cam In Autos. W. J. Bryan has been traveling through a land of milk and honey. Last week h found nothing but pros perity along the route. He found bursting barna and well-fed stock. At nuriingion n aaaressea a iour county meeting Saturday and a hundred farm ers were there In automobiles, some of them big touring cars. His arguments on how to aid the poor farmer were taken as an unconscious touch of hu mor and many a farmer smiled to hear them. Whether Bryan will yet make good hla latest Intention to defy Taggart and mention county option, remains to b heard la tb rest of his speeches. However hla heart failed him when he struck Indiana Friday and his attitude since has been on of extreme servil ity to the democratic boas. He has carefully avoided all reference to bri bery, jackpotlam and local option. When he spoke at Auburn Friday his main option speech in Nebraska wai circulated In the audience and was read, whll the oratory flowed. Hundred of women wore white badg es with the words "We are for tem perance" on them. And In that aame speech Bryan made a strong appeal for the election of Cyrus Cline, Steph en Fleming's man, and a wet man, as a candidate for congress In the twelfth district At Lebanon on Saturday he spoke to a crowded opera house. In Boone county the democratic candidates for the legislature are pledged to aupport county option. Several times his speech led up to the point where It was the most natural thing In the world for him to take up county op tion, and again to the point where It appeared Inevitable that he could mention the Kern bribery char aes. yet he spoke not of them. The memory of one night In the Denlson hotel when a gray-haired man tucked a thumb In hla buttonhole and pulled him Into a corner for a three minute whlaper was apparently sufficient to Iron out of the convultlons of his brain very wrinkle which auggested option or. bribery. Ha Net Btn Popular. . Th attitude of the Nebraskan In atn tacking the sincerity of Col. RooBevelt and Senator Beveridge In their oppo sition to corruption in politics has not been a particularly popular argument not only because of the people a un shaken confidence In these two men, but also because of the ludicrous light In which the argument appeared with Bryan stooping low to kiss the sandals of boss Taggart Bryan was chal lenged at Lebanon by a young man In the audience who reminded him of 8nator Beverldge'a unswerving oppo sition to the methods of the steel trust the tobacco trust and the cotton combine. At the beginning of the campaign when Stokes Jackson, chairman of the democratic state committee, fell into the trap laid by the publicity depart' ment of the republican state commit tee, and was induced to invite Bryan into the atate la the hone of stopping the talk of democratic Inconsistency, democrats generally commented upon the fact in every preceding campaign In which he has taken part in Indiana Bryan has been the prize vote loser. BY LEVI T. PENNINGTON. It Is not strange that the "conserv ation movement" should have reached this body; and this question is as much more Important than the con servation movement of Roosevelt and Plnchot as spiritual things are more Important than coal and forests and water power. The religious life of any community is its most valuable asset even though commercial clubs and improvement societies may not recognise the fact And the conserva tion of this religious life is a matter of vast moment to any community. How may the religious life of the community be conserved? Well In the first place, as any other possession is conserved, by avoiding waste by see ing to it that the religious life is not dissipated. How the church of God In the world has failed here, time out of .mind! What volumes of religious life have been wasted in interdenominational rivalry! The Methodist proselytes from the Quaker, . and the Quaker makes reprisal on the Congregation alist, and he in turn reaches over ti the Presbyterian or the . Baptist or the Lutheran, and enriches himself at their expense. ' And none seem to realize that we are all. if worthy the name of Christians, but workers in the vineyard of the Lord, and that If we could tear from Its place one of His planta and make It grow in the part of the vineyard that we are tend ing, there would be no real gain to the Master of the vineyard, whereas the tearing up and transplanting of the vine cannot fall of doing it, and therefore the vineyard, real harm.

MX I O US loyalty will be exposed, as we do or the whole people and this is a point Life of The City of Richmond ing campaign lor ue nuvancemcni oi great store of religious life that ought to be conserved and developed into power of which the church today is not in possession. Religious life may be conserved, then, as any other thing is conserved, by stopping its waste and preventing the dissipation of it. But in another way, a different way. spiritual life must be conserved and developed into power of which the church of today la not like a material store. If I could preserve my store-of water as I cross the desert, I put it into a water-tight air-tight receptacle, that I may not lose by leakage or evaporation; but. you cannot thus preserve life. . If I would preserve the heat of. the mix ture, I put it into a Thermos bottle, that it may not lose that heat by con duction or radiation. But the relig ious life, is not like the heat of the coffee in the Thermos bottle, but like the fire that Bunyan saw at the House of the Interpreter, fed with oil by the Christ within the wall, so that the devil could not put it out try as he would." - It is life, not material, thai we are ceeking to conserve. Jesus came that we might' have life, and that we might have it abundantly. And how does abundant life come to pass? Where do you find it? Intellectual life .in abundance is found where men think and study, and use their mental pow ers. And intellectual idleness is the greatest dissipater of intellectual life and power. Where do you find the abundant physical life? Why, where athletes congregate. You see it on the football field as ' Rome saw it at the gladiatorial combats and Greece at the religious life of this or any other I the Olympian games. It 13 where community Is to be conserved, the leaders of the church of God, under whatever name, must put aside all thought of one denomination profiting at the expense of another, and all must labor for the common cause. In terdenominational rivalry is a terri ble dissipater of religious life. Worldliness is another great cause of the loss of spiritual life. When a body Is charged with electricity it is necessary if It is to retain that charge, that is should be Insulated. And if we are to hold our spiritual life we must be spiritually insulated Trom the kingdom of evil. The teachings of the entire word are that we are not to be of the world, even though for long time we are to be in the world. We are to come out from among the world and be separte, for God desires a peculiar people, a people from His own possession, because like Himself. How the religious life of the church has been dissipated by worldliness 1 The dance, the card table, the theater, the billiard room, the Sunday spin in the auto at the expense of the church service, the use of tobacco, careless ness in speech, these things and oth ers of like character break down the moral and spiritual insulation of the church, and the electrical charge of spiritual power- Is dissipated. And not only do these things break the spiritual insulation but eventually they cut the wire that connects with the great power house, and the moral and spiritual life are gone. Some times the church, Samson-like, does not recognize this loss of power, but says, "I will arise and shake myself, as at other times, only to find that the Lord has departed. This great leak of worldliness must be stopped. If the spiritual life and power of the church is to be conserv- the physical powers are exercised to the full that you find the fullness of physical life and power. The natural law holds in the spiritual world. If we are to conserve spiritual power we must use it to develop it. Spiritual lethargy and Inaction will paralyze and atrophy spiritual power as surely as the Indian faker's arm is atrophied by inaction. If then we are to conserve the re ligious life of the city, we'must have an abundance of religious activity. Family worship must be kept up, class meetings and prayer meetings must not be neglected. Christian Endeavor societies, Epworth leagues. Baptist Young People's unions, Luther leagues Brotherhoods, etc., must be maintain' ed and made really religious. And above all those definite spiritual ac tivities must " be . maintained which minister directly to the needy. Char ities, home and foreign missions, act and evangelism, etc., will fail if the religious life is not maintained, and convers'-y the religious life will fail if these are not maintained.' One thing more. It is life that we are to conserve. I have no dou" . that some day I shall die. If there fore I am to preserve my life, I must propagate it. Unless I leave offspring the line will die and life will fail, so far as I am concerned. Still more emphatically is it true that if we would conserve the religious life, we must propagate ' it. . Evangelism is the heart of Christianity. That church which is not evangelistic in spirit will die, and will deserve to die. That church which in the spirit of the Mas ter, seeks to advance the kingdom not the individual denomination pri marily, but the kingdom will live, and will deserve to live. The religious life of Richmond is the spiritual life of the community.

He thinks it would be well for the school board to sit up and take a little more notice of what the city council and the patrons of the school really want. After a more or less general dis cuEsion in which it was developed that the council feels that it get 3 scant courtesy at the hands of the school board, it was decided the coun cil should put itself formally on rec ord in reference to the objectionable rule by passing a resolution at a sub sequent meeting and sending a copy of the same to the school board. The council elects the members of the school board and after this is done, the municipal fathers have nothing more to do with it, although they hold it would be nothing more than fair if more attention were given council's suggestions and more information were furnished for the benefit of the public as to the conduct of school af fairs. It was . asserted that there is too little publicity connected with the affairs of the school management. Members of council strongly intim ated that if the council is to elect the members of the school board, which is in compliance with the state law, a naw plan may be followed in the fu ture in order to bring the relationship to the city government a little closer and that is to elect from the member ship of council.

And we who are ministers must i not at flood tide, if I read the' signs stand to the truth, and far on the safe side, if we are to be true "con servationists." Worldliness does' not come upon the church at once. Like Israel of old, we begin to desire to be like the nations round about. In speech, in dress, in business attitude. in amusements, in one thing after an other we become, contrary to the word, "conformed to this world," till if God Himself knows that we are not of the world, certainly the world does not recognize it. Worldliness on the part of the church must be pre vented It we are not to lose our re ligious life. Again, wrong emphasis is a great dissipataer or religious life. The ap proval of men, good as it is, is often exalted, till it becomes a god, and the religious life dies as loyalty to Jesus Christ is replaced by desire for the approval of men. The club replaces the church; the secret order, with Us alms that are good In part, takes the place of the church, the best or ganization in the world; the moral life is emphasised above the religious, which being greater Includes the mor al; money Is made the thing to be de sired, and the dollar is placed so close to the eye that it shuts out the light of the sun and all the stars. Wrong emphasis, and the spiritual life is wasted. . Another great source of waste in religious life is the . failure in our work with the children. The child Is naturally religious and the Man of Galilee understood the child heart when He said, "Of such is the king dom of heaven." The church of God, however, in spite of . the Quaker "birthright membership" and. the in fant baptism of other dnominations, has failed to conserve the religious life of the young, to such an extent that even among ministers those can be found who thnk that it is inevita ble that the young man shall sow his "wild oats." God never intends it so. Among the children of our churches and church communities there is a aright. We are none too rich in spir itual life and power. If we would conserve our present power, we must add to it.
