people who are fighting life's battles.
Since my return from Europe I have
been studying the social question with
a new enthusiasm. I was formerly In

changed my outlook."
"What do you mean?" asked Allan
"In Europe, to my surprise, I found
the leading thinkers and scholars turn
ing their attention more and more to
the matter of social reform. In such
matters Europe is far in advance of
America. Some of the recent legisla
tion in Germany and England would
be called rank socialism with us."
"You mean the laws giving the gov
ernments control of monopolies and
the legislation providing for state in
surance, old age pensions, minimum
wage and such like?"
"Yes," answered Mr. Townley. "I did
not know you were Interested In these
things at all. I am delighted to know

"'Here are the facts about the big

dividends. These enormous profits are
in part possible because more than
half of the*© workers toil twelve hours
a day, most of these working seven
days in the week. Over 30 per cent of
these men earn less than $1.68 for this
long day of labor. Three men protest

day labor. They were at once dis
chaKged, and this caused the strike.
The wage scale makes the herding of
men together the only method of living
possible for them. Under such condi

nothing of Christianity.'

Townley, "gives rise to serious

said Allan Rutledge, with determina

"What is your plan?" he asked.
"Bronson needs new men more than
it needs anything else," responded Al
lan, with decision. "Otherwise we
need an old fashioned revival of real
religion. The first thing for us to do
is to unite our Protestant churches in
a genuine religious campaign. If you
can get the other churches in Bronson
to co-operate with the People's church
and the Central church I will guaran
tee a regeneration. Do you think you
can gain the co-operation of the other
Protestant churches?"
"Explain your plan further," said
Mr. Townley, with a perplexed look.
"If we do succeed in getting our Bron
son Protestantism united what do you
then propose?"
"Here is what I propose," said Allan
Rutledge. "We will build a tabernacle
capable of seating 10,000 people. We
will not build this tabernacle on the
top of any mount but right down in
.the valley among the common people.
Then we shall have a strong, capable
leader take charge of the situation for
five or six weeks, holding meetings in
the great tabernacle night after night,

there will be a new atmosphere in

"Whom do you mean?" asked the
"The Rev. William A. Sunday, bet

Albert Townley Jumped to his feet.
"It. will never do, Rutledge. 1 have
read of some of this man's campaigns
and of their success, but it Is absurd
to think of bringing him to Bronson.
This is a peculiar community. Do you
think Messrs. Graham and March
mount would indorse such a move
"Listen to me, my brother," began
Allan Rutledge. in earnest tones. "In
planning out this campaign I never
thought for a moment whether Graham
or Marchmount or any one else would
Indorse it except God Almighty. Did
you not assert yourself in your diagno
sis that the very fact that such men

without vital religion, controlled the
religious organizations of Bronson. was
the most damning fact in our church
"You know something about Billy
Sunday, I expect?" asked Allan.
"I have never met him personally,"
said the other, "but I have often heard
him condemned by ministers and oth
ers. They say his methods and lan
guage are vulgar in the extreme."
"I have known Mr. Sunday since he
was one of our national baseball stars,"
said Allan Rutledge, seating himself
and turning to his companion. "1 was
only a boy then, but 1 remember how
proud we were of our Iowa baseball
champion. After bis conversion I lost
sight of him for some years, but when
he entered the religious held I hailed
him as a winner, for I knew that he

has courage, determination, manhood
and dynamic energy. His so called
vulgarity Is only the vernacular of the
baseball diamond, and it is the every
day language of millions of Americans.
He does not need to use this language,
but he humbles himself to it in order
to reach the masses and save them.
His astounding success is proof of his
divine commission."
After a good deal of argument and
persuasion Albert Townley finally
agreed to visit the other ministers in
Bronson. with whom be had a large
influence, and seek to unite Bronson
Protestantism in a Billy Sunday cam
paign. Mr. Townley was surprised to
find that almost unanimously the other
ministers agreed that such a campaign
would be supported by them.
The result was that a meeting of the
ministers and some of the most spir
itual men in the churches was called.
The Central church was represented
at this meeting by Mr. Cameron. Mr.
Cameron had heard Billy Sunday and
was enthusiastic in favor of the plan.
"It will be just as Dr. Rutledge
says," he exclaimed. "If we arrange
for a big tabernacle and Invite Billy
Sunday to Bronson we will shake this
town from center to circumference,
and we need such a shaking.'*
Other laymen spoke in the same
strain. It was planned to present the
matter to the different churches the
following Sabbath. The proposed un
ion of the Protestant forces in a spir
itual campaign appealed to the individ
ual churches of all denominations, and
the ministers were astonished and
pleased to find out the amount of real
religious Interest which had been la
tent in their congregations.
Allan Rutledge made a visit to a
neighboring state, where Mr. Sunday
was conducting a campaign, and pre
vailed upon him to arrange for a meet
ing in Bronson.
"We need you in Bronson, Billy,"
said Allan Rutledge, with intense ear
nestness, "and God needs you."
"All right," was the ex-baseball
champion's characteristic remark. "Go
ahead and get up the tablernacle. I'm
ready to buck the gang in Bronson or
anywhere else. I have never back
pedaled for the devil yet, and I never
As time went on and the prepara
tions for the building of the immense
tabernacle were begun there were
signs of anxiety among, certain of
Branson's citizens.
"Is this grafter, Billy Sunday, com
ing to Bronson?" said Bud McCrea to
Mr. Graham one day in the law office
of Millman & Graham. Bud McCrea
was the uncrowned king of Bronson.
He was the political boss. The man
seemed to feel a sense of injured dig
nity that it was proposed to inau
gurate a spiritual campaign without
first obtaining his consent
There was a scowl la his face* ,.
"Don't be afraid,'*' be replied Joking
!y. "Sunday is nothing but a clown,
and his circus performances here will
not amount to anything."
"I don't know about that," mid the
other seriously. "I have reports from
some places where he has been, and he
is a dangerous man. After his cam
paigns cities begin to 'clean up,* as
they call It, and we want none of that
kind of Sunday school business in

"I never liked that fellow, Rutledge,"
said McCrea. "He is one of those con
founded preachers who think they
ought to be Interfering with every
body's business."
"He did preach a strong temperance
sermon lately, I understand," said the
lawyer, "and spoke somewhat severely
about our saloon regulations, but he
will soon get tired of that kind of
thing. These new men need to be giv
en a little liberty, you know."
"I'll see the council and try to head"
the thing off," said McCrea as he arose'
to go. "The visit of such a grafter as"
Billy Sunday to Bronson is a disgrace.'*

of holding the balance of power in
1916, even if they know they can't
elect a President.
The ending of a full year of war
has brought out in the newspapers
summaries that stagger the human
mind. With the roll of the dead made
up of 2,225,000 names and 8,770,000
men wounded in the twelve months,
and with 115,500,000,000 spent to prp
-duce such results, the cost of war in
lives and money is seen to be too great
to permit any one to think lightly ot
America becoming involved,
The published reviews coincide In
admitting that Germany has made
such progress that it should win, but
they go on to say that Germany can't
win, because England can't permit it.
But more will depend on England's
power than on her wishes, as is now
realized, judging from dispatches from
the British capital. The outcome will
certainly depend upon whether the Al
lies stick together, and latest develop
ments in Poland have raised a large
doubt as to how long Russia will per
sist in a losing war.
Several distinct shocks were pro
duced by the execution of Becker, the
police lieutenant who was convicted
of instigating the murder of Rosen

whole underworld was shocked," for
what safety can there be for buyers
of "protection" if police sellers of
that commodity can be electrocuted.
The shock to "the system", that, com

law-abiding citizens were shocked,

satisfied of Becker's guilt, nor was it
reconciled to the propriety of his ap

captain refused to stop when hailed
by the submarine commander, and
three Americans in the crew went
down. They had put themselves vol
untarily in danger, and, even though
the President refuses to warn Ameri
cans to keep off British boats, as Sec
retary Bryan advised, there is no thot
of making an issue of this incident.
Of course it is a principle with the
President to guard Americans wher
ever they may be except in Mexico,
but in practice principles are subject
to modification. And it is to be re
membered that England did not get
into any fuss in the time of the Russo
Japanese war when her subjects went
poking their noses into trouble.

There is keen disappointment over

Th creation of an American mer

was brought to naught. Now Great
Britain is planning a line through the
