FIGHT O\ THE SALOON.
National l.ertnwr .Jackson Tells of
Its Progre*» and Prospects.
Dr. ■$. C. Jackson, of Ohio, national lec
turer of the American Anti-Saloon league,
lectured yesterday afternoon at Central
Presbyterian church to a large audience
on the work of the league. Incidentally
he pointed ont the work that has been
accomplished by the organization, and
told of it« methods. The lecturer was in
troduced by Rev. Richard H. Battey, of
Minneapolis, state superintendent of the
"The saloon is a moral monster," said
Pr. Jackson. "H lives, moves and has
its being out of a Batanle impulse for
makins money. No argument is needed
for you to bo aware of the truth of this
assertion. Instead, I am going to try and
explain how the open saloons can be ef
fort fully' antagonised.
•In order to do effective work we must
work together. The Anti-Saloon federa
tion is a combination of churches and
temperance organisations working out a
single purposie and accomplishing results.
It is not a total abstinence society in the
strict sense of the word, ond it is not de
nominational. Protestants and Catholics
are working together on the common
ground of oppostlon to the open saloon."
Pr. Jackson outlined in a general way
the principles and methods of the organi
zation and 6«otaxed that results had been
attained that presen^ decided encourage

league's methods of reaching the end de-
Blred, tie said, are by agitation, legislation
and law enforcement. - ■

Easter Sunday: The church has oilier
festal days, but of all such none has the
peculiar "sanctity of Easter. It is distin
guished from all others; It may be the
spring time, it may be the music, the
Bowers, or the central theme of many
sermons, but it has become the day of
days of Christian observance and com
memorates the greatest event In church
history, the resurrection of the Christ.
The celebration of the birth of spring
was the primary expression of Easter,
and is a natural and irresistible accom
paniment 6f it's observance, and in this
era of the Christian religion has ac
quired a signiticance of broader conse
quence. The Jews adopted it a» the time
of the celebration of the feast of the pas
sover, and at the present time Easter
day. as commemorating the central fact
of our religion, is the chief festival of the
Christian year, and is observed In all
churches with a stately and elaborate
ceremonial, and on such days the world
bows before its one example of perfect
love. an<l absolute self-sacrifice.
In the city churches yesterday the day
was observed with fitting exercises, the
larger churches especially vying with
each other in the elaboration of their

Rev. Father Gibbons Preaches an In

All the seats in St. Mary's were filled
long before the service began, and the
largt- number of those who stood in the
aisles and at the rear of the church
The decorations of the main altar were
very elaborate. The large, rich and mas
sive golden candelabra, the bed of lilies
and deep background of palms, the golden
angels over the tabernacle, the artistic
display of American Beauties, together
with the 500 lighted waxen tapers, tha
golden vestments of the minister, made
the altar and chancel of St. Mary's most
impressive. Perhaps in no church in the I
city is there so rich a display of candel- I
abra and vestments, and all these ara
used in the Easter celebration.
T'se music was under the direction of
Miss Elsie M. Shawe. Birdman's mass

said, he, we can point triumphantly to
the eleven apparitions. If diversity of time
be demanded we can reply that he ap
peared in the. morning at the seat of
Tiberias; appeared at noon on Mount
Thabor. and He appeared at evening to the
apostles in the upper chamber room In
Jerusalem. If diversity of place be re
quired, we point to His appearance at the
sepulchre, then on the road to Emmons;
again on Thabor and Olivet He ap
peared to individuals —to Magdalen, to
Peter, to the two women on the way to
the tomb and to the two disciples; to the
ten and to the eleven disciples, and finally
to 400 men on Mount Olivet. Surely this
is ample testimony to witness a fact, and
the resurrection is a fact.
Incredulity is never more weak than
In its attack on the resurrection of Christ.
After 1900 years not one new historic ar
gument has been adduced. Infidels are
forced back to rely on the weak hypoth
esis put forth in the first century by Colse
and Porphyrus, viz: that Christ was not
dead and that the apostles came in the
night and stole his body away.
Scientists have patiently studied the na
ture of Christ's death and the intensity of
his suffering; they have numbered the
wounds in the hands and feet and In his
side: they have counted the strokes of the
lash, they have estimated the loss of his
blood In the garden of agony, at the pillar
and at the crucifixion and come to the
conclusion that he certainly was dead.
They have followed carefully the details
of his funeral; measured the sepulchre,
weighed the atone and considered the
number of men it would take to roll It
away from before the door of the sepul
chre. They sounded the ground around
Calvary and established the impossibility
of a subterranean passage; they consid
ered the possibility of bribes and the ina
bility of the apostles to bribe the soldiers.
They took into account the triple crime,
the crime of base desertion of the army,
the crime of treason against the Roman
emperor and the crime of sacrilege for a
Jew to touch a dead body; and after
weighing all they accepted with one ac
cord the evangelist's narrative that "A
soldier came down to Jerusalem and told
the ancients and the people; and they
agreed to pay large sums of money to the
soldiers to say that the apostles came in
the night and stole him away."
But setting aside these proofs we can
take another, the testimony of the apos
tles, which they sealed with their blood.
The apostles were weak and illiterate
men. Those who saw them were aston
ished to find them in the company of Je
sus; and their rude speech and manner
seemed to Justify that astonishment. And
vet these men, devoid of the world's
wealth. unskilled in the world's
learning, went forth to conquer the world,
and they conquered It. They teft their
mark on civilization and this mark is
Ineffaceable. They preached the risen
Christ and they sealed their teaching with
a martyr's blood.
The resurrection of Christ renews the
pledge of future resurrection and Inspires
men with hope that they may stand in
the blessed presence of their Master.
AT CHRIST CHIRCH.
Beautiful Flower* and Glorious
Music \<lf*i n.-.l the Service.
Easter day was beautifully celebrated
at Christ church yesterday morning. The
chancel was handsomely decorated. On
one side was a large cross of Easter
lilies, with a. background of palms; on
the other side the font was filled with
a huge bunch of hydrangeas. In the
center of the altar was a cross of Ameri
can Beauty roses, flanked on either hand
with masses of lilies. Lilies were every
where, and, together with palms, filled the
pulpit and almost hid the lecturn from
view. The music, too, was elaborate
and had been carefully selected and pre
pared. There were sung the festal choral
service by Tallls; Te Deum in F. Jouetf
anthem. "Break Forth Into Joy," Barn
by; anthem. "He Is Risen.'' Claire; Holy
Communion in E and D, "Woodward. The
services were conduc*eti by the ■Rev. ~C.

day we come together in multitudes, and
our hearts rejoice and are glad, for we
are here to realize the blessedness of the
life to come. There is much In this life
to make us happy— tho beautiful flowers
and music— but Easter day tells us of
the glorious hope when vie veil shall be
lifted. These is something joyous and
beautiful about it. and our lives are spent
in breaking through all obstacles and get
ting up into the sunlight."
The sermon was preached by the Rt.
Rev. Bishop M. N. Gilbert and was ;i
most eloquent and powerful effort. He
said in part: "No text is needed today,
for the whole, world is full of the one
thought, the resurrection, of Christ. One
of the significant truths of the resurrec
tion is that it is the center of the cir
cumference of. all the world, which is the
inevitable thought of every logical mind,
and through it the Scriptures become
plain and all things become understanda
ble. It tells us what we are apt to forget,
that the power ruling the world is a spir
itual and moral power, hi all the things the
eye rests upon— the trees, the tlowera- are
symbols of the resurrection, in which we
find the full force of the spiritual and
moral power of man. We also learn that
the greatest thing in the world is the
soul of man. You and T shall die and rise

KMGHTS OF MALTA.
They Attended Service at the First
Special services were held in the First
Baptist church yesterday afternoon by
the pastor. Rev. EL F. Stilwell, and Rev.
W. W. Newall for the Twin City com
ma nderies of the Knights of Malta. Eight
cc.mmandpries were present, and they
filled the body of the church, marching
in with military precision.
The banners of the commanderles were
placed in the front of the church, and
with the handsome flowers on the altar
made a pretty sight. The choir, con
sisting of Miss Eva H. Alcott. Miss Nellie
A. Hope, Paul Floyd and Edward
Kueritz, assisted by A. C. Koerner, the
organist, sang several selections with
On the. banner of the Knights was em
blazoned a cross and this, perhaps led
Mr. Stilwell to the subject of his ser
mon, "The Sign of the Cross." He took
his text from the twenty-third verso of
the twelfth chapter of John: "If I be
lifted up from earth I shall draw all
men unto me."
Mr. StilweU spoke of Napoleon In
Egypt and his soldiers gazing at the
pyramids and realizing that twenty cen
turies of soldiers were looking down upon
them. He thought that instilled a mili
tary spirit into their minds and made
them better warriors. It was the same
with the Knights.
"I congratulate you," said he, "be
cause you represent an order so ancient.
I congratulate you that you bear on your
escutcheon an unsullied emblem. I honor
you for the ensign on your banner."
Then Mr. Stilwell spoke of the power
of the cross and Its history, and repeat
ed tho story of Christ and the two
thieves at Calvary. It showed that the
sign of the cross was suffering— the suf
fering of the innocent, of the repentant
and of the guilty. The cross was also
a sign of sacrifice and a sign of victory.
"But," he continued, "the cross must
be worn In the heart. The battle flag
In war, the glorious Stars and Stripes, is
an inspiration, but amid the din and
carnage of battle the flag must be worn
In the heart. The American flag Is
spread In our church today and I want
to say that there is no place too holy
for it. Under the cross great things will
be accomplished by the Stars and Stripes.

Saturday afternoon on the line of the
interurban electric line, near the city lim
its, a car going at full speed struck an
express wagon driven by James McDow-
I ell, a teamster in the employ of the Col
onnade Express company. The shock of
the collision threw the driver from his
seat to the ground. He fell with great
force, striking on the top of his head and
receiving a concussion of the brain.
The injured man was picked up by the
conductor and motorman of the car and
brought to the city. He was turned over
to the Rondo station officers, who sum
moned the ambulance and had him taken
to the city hospital, where he now lies,
hovering between life and death. An ex
amination of his injury disclosed the fact
that it was more severe than at first sup
posed and that his chances of ultimate
recovery would be slight. Early Sunday
morning, it was reported from the hos
pital that his chances of life were very
slight, but he rallied during the day and
a report last night gave some hope. His

"At last there came from Jeruaalem one
night one of these shepherds. Word was
sent to the others that he had come back
with a strange tale, and soon they were
all gathered together.: He tells them the
story. He had been up to Jerusalem
about some business matter, and had
gone into the temple, and there, off in
one corner, he had seen a strange, un
usual sight. In the midst of a group
of scribes, Pharisees, doctors and lawyers
was a boy. As the shepherd drew nearer
he could hear them discussing certain
abstruse themes, and the boy answering
and asking questions. As the shepherd
say that bright, beautiful face he said
to himself: 'Ah, I wonder if It could be.
Let me see; how many years ago Is It?
Ah, it is eleven— no, it is twelve years
twelve years since that night, and this
Boy is just about twelve years old ' He
advanced yet nearer. . He Is now just
back of where the Boy ts sitting. He
knew a test he could apply. Creeping
close to him he whispered Into his ear:
'Glory to God in the highest." Instant
ly the Boy turns. His face meets the
answering glow In the shepherd's eye,
and without a moment's hesitation the
Boy has added the .rest of the song, 'and
on earth peace, good will to men.' Ah,
it was He! The shepherd hastens back
to Bethlehem with the news, and the
next day, you carl' well believe, all the
shepherds took the road to Jerusalem.
But the Boy had gonei ..
"Eighteen years, mope the shepherds
waited. They had grown to be old men.
Then comes a rumor- from the banks
of the Jordan that a strange prophet had
arisen there. 'It must be He once more.'
They drew lots and sent two of their
number by the short . cut across the
mountains to the valley of the Jordan
with instructions to see this new prophet
and find out who he was. They find a
queer individual, with long hair, shaggy
garments and uncouth ways; they find
j him preaching and baptizing in the Jor-
I dan valley. They approach and they try I
with him the old test. 'Glory tc God in I
the highest,' they say. John the Baptist
turns to th»m and says: 'What do you
know about God's glory?' They put to
him the plain question, 'Art thou the
Christ?' He answered, 'No, but the
Christ is coming very soon." The shep
herds hurry back to their Bethlehem
home, and in a few days the story comes
of a new prophet, greater than any pre
vious prophet, and now at last they know
the Messiah Is at work.
"You can imagine how eagerly those
shepherds listened for every new tale.
You can Imagine how, when they met the
Lord, they fairly hung upon His words.
You can readily understand how they
loved Ills miracles and how they appre
ciated His teaching. They knew that the
Master belonged to. them. Had not the
message of Ills birth come to them first?
Had not the angels singled them out to be
the recipients of this heavenly message
and to hear that angelic music? Oh, how
eagerly they followed all tho details of
the Master's career! And at last when
word came, after three- ryears of waiting,
that the Master had entered Jerusalem
In triumph, oh. hqw pleased they were
and how anxiously thejy' were expecting
further development. Ire
"Six days more ■ pass. The shepherds
are together Rt thefr accustomed place- of
meeting. It is late' at hight. Still they
are waiting. Finally they hear the ap
proach of rapid footsteps. Their comrade
bursts into the room. But, oh, they hard
ly knew him. Who-' is this uncouth stran
ger? Was it really^thelr comrade Joseph,
the shepherd? Yes\" it/, was he; but, oh,
how changed ! He was an old man before,
but he seems to be twenty years older
now. His garments are spattered with
mud. His hair looks as if he had torn
it out by handfuls: Hts cheeks are fur
rowed by tears. His limbs hardly sup
port him, and he Is spent with rapid run
ning. It is a long time, between his sobs,
before he is able to tel! the story, and at
last they gather this: He had finished I
his business at the shepherd market, and
was making his way homeward, skirting
the edge of tho city to reach the Hebron
Bethlefrem road. ' Suddenly he saw out
lined against the sky; at the place called
I Golgotha three crosseW 'Strange time,' j
he muttered to himself, 'for the Romans
to execute (heir criminals.' But then
he saw other than Romans there. There
were Pharisees and scribes in the throng.
The Romiin sentinel was near. He touch
ed him liJimii the shoulder and asked,
'"Who is that?' The rough Roman turned
and answered, 'It is the King of the
•Jews.' Oh! Thu shepherd remembered
that that was the name that some of them
were fond of giving to the Messiah. There
was a Pharisee near and he turned to
him and said, 'Who is hanging yonder?'
The Pharisee answered, 'It Is the Gal
ilean prophet.' Ah! Could it be? The
poor, stricken man draws nearer. Ah,
yes, it is He, It Is He! There was no mis
take. And tlfere at the foot of the cross
—yes, It was John, the disciple. The
woman— yes, it was Mary. There could
be no mistake. And so the poor shepherd
waited on. He waited until he heard
those last words, 'It is finished.' He
waited until ho saw the Roman spear
do its cruel work. He waited until he
saw the little funeral procession on its
way to the tomb. He waited until he
saw the great stone rolled to the mouth.
And then? Ah, the poor man never knew
quite how he reached Bethlehem that
night. The sheplierds listened. It was
all over, evidently. They had been mis
taken. 'We had trusted,' they said one
to another, 'that this was He who would
redeem Israel. But now He is dead, now
fie is buried in the tomb.'
"There was revelry that night in the
camp of the enemies of Christ. There
were the Jews. They said, 'Oh, we have
killed Him at last, and In the very best
way, for we have scattered His followers
by seizing their chief.' Rome said, 'Ah,
one more humiliation we have heaped
upon Jewish heads.' Philosophy said, 'I
have crushed another error.' History said,
'One more ambitious aspirant I have
trampled In the dust.' Pride said, 'Add
another to my trophies.' Wealth- said,
'Count another of my victims.' The Ro
man warrior said, 'This man preached of
peace and love, but the world was not
made for peace and love,' and then the
soldier rattled his sword in his scabbard
and shook his spear on high. And the
world said, 'I have killed Him, I have
ourled Him, and now I will forget Him.'
Mr. Paxton then traced the history of
Christianity from this point. In Rome
Christians, men and women, were tortur
ed; some were thrown to the wild beasts;
others, covered with tar or pitch, were
set on fire to illuminate the pathway of
Nero the tyrant.
"What a transformation there has been!
Everything has changed. When the Jews
moved that stono to the mouth of the
sepulchre of Christ it was the beginning
of their own doom. The Roman said,
'I have crucified the king of the Jews,'
and in a few centuries the crucified's rep
resentative is seated upon the Roman
"Philosophy said, 'I have crushed an
other error,' and just a few years pass
on and philosophy is kneeling at the feet
of the Galilean prophet. Kloquence and
art have both become His servants. Art
has been busy all through many cen
turies with one problem, how to paint a
perfect picture of the Master, and at last
art gave up the problem and said: 'We
will content ourselves with painting pic
tures of His mother and making Him
only a child; it is the best that we can
do.' The cross, which was the old symbol
of shame and ignominy, you know what
a proud symbol it is now.
"Today the cross' victory Is more won
derful than ever. Today more than ever
do knees bow at the mention of Jesus'
name. Today more wealth is offered to
His will, and today there are more Chris
tiana than ever devoted to His service.
History was wrong. The Jews were
wrong. Rome was wrong. That tomb
was not built to hold, longer than He
chose, the King of Kings, the Lord of
Lords. And so I say to you that you
must take the resurrection of the Lord
out of the category of your belief and
you must put it among the proven facts.
The only way to explain history is by
the resurrection. I can tell you why It
was that Mohammedanism became so
strong. Mohammed was a succesa while
he lived, and he put into his religion the
very things that would please men. He
gave to them a great deal and he asked
from them very little. I can explain to
you the rise and progress of Buddhism
and Brahmanism. The were designed for
the ignorant and the degraded of the com^
munlty. But the only way in which I can
explain to you the rise and the progress
of Christianity is by the one single faot
of the resurrection. Christianity has
come against men's wishes, it has been
at variance with their ambitions, their
hopes, their designs, and, in spite of all,
it has succeeded, and the explanation you
find on this Easter morning. O centurion,
thou wast right! This is the Son of Ood.
O Paul of Tarsus, thou hast given us
history's countersign, 'The Lord Is risen.'
O thou Nazarene, we thank Thee for Thy
words: 'Because I live thou shalt live

ROBBERS NOT FOUND
POLICE HA.YE NO CLITE VBT TO
THE ASSAIL-ABiTS OJP MI
HIS INJURY IS NOT SERIOUS
Police Have Been Bn»r oh th« ('Me,
but n* Vet Have Hot Made Any
Important Discovert** Bearing;
on tlie Identity of the Robbers
Wl.o So Quickly Disappeared
Sir. iroacv Improving;.
The proverbial shrewdness of the detec
tive and the sturdy patrolman have made
no noticeable inroads yet on the mystery
surrounding the assault and robbery Sat
urday evening, in which Michael Treacy,
of the firm of Brown, Treacy & Co., was
knocked down and robbed of $493.20 in his
own place of business, 140-146 Eaat Third
street. The city detective force havt>
been at work on the case ever since it
occurred, but have found no clewa which
give promise of placing the responsibility
for the deed.
The unusual features of the occurrence
have made it more than ordinarily dif
ficult to bring the offenders to justice.
1 As previously stated in The Globe, the
robbery was witnessed by no one, even
Mr. Treacy being unable to give the
slightest information which would iden
tify the men. At the time it occurred
there were 120 men In the building, the
office force were at work not a dozen feet
from the staircase down which the men
descended after the robbery, and on the
corner, half a block from the building,
stood Officer Barney Ryan, of the city
Detectives were stationed at the depots
immediately after the robbery, with im
perative instructions to arrest suspicious
characters. The entire city police depart
ment was notified and every officer was
on the alert. Yet -the night passed with
no arrests and yesterday morning but
little progress had been made. A sys
tematic inquiry was made yesterday aft
ernoon among the merchants having
places of business near the Brown-Treacy
establishment in hopes that the mis
creants might have been seen entering
or leaving- the building. Joseph Lorenga, i
an Italian fruit and confectionery store I
proprietor, having a place of business at
139 East Third, said:
"I was In the store at the time. I saw
several people passing back and forth on
the other side of the street, but saw no
one go Into the building. Soon a crowd
gathered and they told me some one had
Joseph Debarberl. another confectionery
store proprietor, at 166 Eaßt Third, was
able to make a more accurate statement.
"There were people on the street," said
he, "and I saw two men walking to
gether. I did not see them enter tho
Brown-Treaty building, but when I
looked again they were gone. I cannot
tell what they looked like. They were
young men. I was in the front of the
store when the crowd gathered, but ?m.w
no one running."
Several other residents of the locality
were Interviewed with the same result.
The fact that many people were on the
street, it being 6 o'clock when the Third
street business houses close, would have
made It nothing unusual for men to have
been seen entering and leaving the bulld
-Ins. It is supposed that the robbers
walked quietly down the street and
escaped In the crowd.
Regarding the discovery of the robbery
1 and the finding of Mr. Treacy on the
stairway, Guiteau Geisenheimer, an em
ploye of the bindery, stated that at the |
time he had heard a noise on the stairs |
and the sound of footsteps. He opened j
tho door and, looking out, found Mr. j
Treacy lying on the stairs. He carried j
him into the room and rushed down to
the outside door. He (poked. up and down I
the street, but saw nrt one but the ordi
nary numbering p*HJestrians. Then he
went to DenJflTflf -8. ■" Bn*rry, Junior mem-.

ber of the firm, and reported. An officer

The theory has been advanced tnat the
men might have escaped upstairs into
the stock room on the third floor, which
is rarely occupied, and from there down
the fire escape In the rear. An examina
tion'of the building was made yesterday
with the result that there was no evi
dence of such an occurrence. There was
no other way of escape through the buiM
ing, as all the rooms upstairs, with the
exception of the stock room, were filled
with employe* watting for their pay.
Chief Schweitzer said yesterday regard
ing the robbery: "It was a bold attemp-,
and well carried out, either through luck
ov design. I am confident that the work
was done by local talent, since outsidn
parties would not have known so well
the customs of the members of the firm
and the Interior arrangement of the
building. It may have been the work
of some local thief, aided by an accom
plice In the employ of the company.
There has been a dearth of clues so far,
but I am by no means assured that we
will not locate the responsibility for the
work. It rarely happens that such a
Job is done without something leaking:
out, and though justice may not follow
at once, it will not be long delayed."
The money in the bag which Mr.
Treacy carried was enclosed In heavy en
velopes for the individual employes. With
the exception of change, It was all in
$6 gold pieces, and weighed In the neigh
borhood of sixteen pounds. From the fact
that ordinary people do not possess a su
perfluity o* gold, it is more than possible
that this fact may lead to further clues.
The chiefs of the two branches of the
city's protective service agree that no
blame attaches to the officers on tha
beats in the vicinity of the robbery. 'Che
absence of the ordinary features of such,
a crime would have made it Impossible to
have fixed the responsibility at the time
the men escaped. Mr. Treacy spent the
greater part of the day at his home, and
is recovering from the shock of the blow
which he received, though he stated that
his wound was more painful than it was

the burglars went to the cellar and hid
the small portion of the booty secured
which still remained in their hands. In
j the chase which ensued as they were ob

dropped ten pieces of goods, and it was
thought at first that the entire lot taken
had been recovered.
While walking his beat Officer Knrlßht,
of the Rondo station, was accosted by a
couple of small boys, who stated to him
that, while playing in the cellar of the oM
street car barn, they had found hid away
seven bundles of cloth. The barn was
burned some time ago and the ruins of
fered an excellent place of concealment
for stolen property.
In company with the two boys Officer
Enright visited the place and secured the
missing cloth. It was taken to the Rondo
station, and, after being Identified as a
part of that taken on Friday night, waa
turned over to the owner. The place
where the cloth was hidden was watched
on the night of the discovery and the. fol
lowing night, In hopes that the thieves
might be caught when they returned for
the property. They had evidently heard
of the discovery, however, and did not
appear. There is no clew to their identity
so far, but the police department think
that they will be located in a short time.
