PRES BYTERIAN CHIRCH FROM A SMALL BEGINNING It Is Norv on Firm Uasis and Doin^ Good Work — Addresses by Pastor and Mem bers. The fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the Central Presbyterian church was celebrated last night with elaborate cer emonies. Several of the older members of the congregation took part in the pro gramme, and recalled the times when the prosperous church was but a struggling little socity in a pioneer town. Dr. Mel drum, pastor of the church, read a pa per prepared by T. D. Simontin, who is the oldest member of the church. It took up the early history of the church from the time of its organization until the present day. The following is an extract: "The church had its real beginning In the coming to St. Paul of Dr. John G. Ryaldaffer. This was in the fall of 1851. At that time the territory of Minnesota had but 7,000 people within her borders, and the city of St. Paul was but a town of 1,500. There was a Presbyterian church In the town, but it was of the 'Old School.' Some of the people felt there was need for another society. Accord ingly shortly after Mr. Ryaldaffer ar rived the Central church was organized with but seven members. There was no church building, but the society met in different places in the city. Some of its meetings were held In the court house, some in the supreme court room o-f the capitoi, and finally the Baptist church on Baptist hill. The meetings in the church were held under conditions that no children were t<? be sprinkled in the building. In ISSI Hie new church building was dedicated. It was built on the site now occupied by the church, the ground being given by Louis Robert, one of the early pioneers of the city. This building was occuped until the present structure was erected a few years ago. Mr. B. H. J?chriber, superintendent of the Sunday school, spoke upon the mission of the Central church. He pointed out the different classes of work which tha church is able to do because of its favor able location. In speaking of the work which lies before the church, Mr. Sehri ber said that the time is almost at hand when a manual training department must be added. He thinks thera is a great need of work of this class, and that it "Will add to the Influence and power of the church. Addresses were delivered by Robert P. Lewis, Prof. Thomas Shaw and Dr. Meldrum. The celebration will be completed with a social in the church parlors this evening. MUD ON ALL SIDES !ST. i* VI"I/S STREETS WEKE ALMOST IMPASSABLE YESTERDAY. Mud, the consistency of which was only equaled b}' the tenacity with which it clung to everything it came in contact ■with, held sway throughout St. Paul yes terday and made promenading iar from a pleasure. The sky was fair and the warmth un usual for February, but these inviting features were lost in the contemplation of skirts and shoes, whose mud-be- Bprinkled aspect brought down anything l)ut blessings on those supposed to take car^ of St. Paul's highways. For the past three days the crossings and streets have been covered with more than their usual covering of nasty, sticky mud, and in consequence complaint is general. Wihere the street cars make fre quent stop?, the condition is frightful. In the vicinity of the Rvan hotel, where the interurban cars stop, the mud yesterday was slightly relieved with the aid of a shovel and broom in the hands of a street car employe, but the relief was not very lasting. Complaints are going up that the engineering- department seems to have suddenly gon^ out of existence. The wretched condition of the crossings has been brought to Mr. Clausscn's at tention several times, but ho has not yet apparently taken any steps to make ihe streets more presentable or the crossings less frt-e from mud. l'raiie for Piontcr L.imitca.

FEET SAYS WHEN CRUSHED IT MAKES AN IDEAL MA TERIAL MUCH USED IN THE EAST experiments Have Convinced Chair man' of Good Roads Committee of Commercial Bodies! That It Should Be I seel. E. W. Peet, chairman of the committee on good roads of the consolidated com mittee of the commercial bodies of St. Paul, is one of the ardent supporters of the movement for the improvement of the roadways of the state. He has thor oughly investigated the different kinds of paving- that can be used in the state and has done this with a view to ob taining data as to cost, supply and dura bility. He expresses himself as being well sat isfled with some of these experiments, especially those with crushed slate which has proven satisfactory in Pennsylvania and certain parts of Europe. Of the suit' ability of using slate for paving purposes, Mr. Peet says: "J. have recently thoroughly invests gated a new material, crushed slate, for making a good pavement in cities and vil lages, and for coating country roads, par ticularly in thickly settled portions. Al though new to this section of the country, crushed slate as a pavement and a ma terial for good roads is not an experiment. It is and has been used extensively in Europe, where there are the best roads in the world, and in Eastern Pennsyl vania, where the slate is abundant. It has been used in making roads which are noted for their good Qualities. It makes a smooth, elastic roadway and is one ot the cheapest and best materials that can be secured. That it is not more generally used is due, no doubt, to the fact that slate quarries are not found in all parts of the country. "Minnesota has an inexhaustible sup. ply. At Caxleton, in Carleton county, there are immense slate quarries and there is now completed and in operation a large mill or manufactory run by water power, the St. Louis river, for crushing and grinding the material as well as for making the best quality of brick, which is unexcelled for paving as well as for building purposes. "The material can be furnished at a very low price and, as favorable arrange ments can be made with the railroads for transporting it, and as it costs very little to lay it, it is a very economical pavement. The cost of constructing road ways or pavements of this material, in cluding cost of transportation and ex pense of laying is less than half of that of macadam. The great economy in the use of this material arises from the fact that it can be laid upon dirt wIHTout any foundation of stone. The surface of the street or road is smoothed and rounded and from two to five inches of this crushed slate spread upon the dirt and covered with a coating of powdered slate and rolled, or where there is a good deal of travel, rolling is not necessary. It packs and binds, does not crack, does not cut through and forms a smooth, hard surface, impervious to water, does not wash out and can be easily kept in repair. It never is muddy and requires no more sprinkling or care to prevent it* being dusty than macadam or asphalt. "It is particularly well adapted to resi dence streets in large cities and to all the streets of the smaller cities and vil lages. A coating of this material two or three inches thick on a country road will make a fine, smooth, hard roadway that is unexcelled by any other, as shown by the actual experiences in Europe and in Pennsylvania, and in Carleton and Co quet, and the roadways in that vicinity, where it has been used for some time, gives entire satisfaction. "A small section of pavement of this new material has been constructed in St. Paul and in Minneapolis on residence streets and on business streets and It is proving eminently satisfactory. ' This material is certainly worthy of investlga. tion by all interested in the subject, both on account of its excellence and its econ omy." TOO MUCH GONLEY PATH Oli MA IV MOSi:s ZIMMER jIAV HAS EXPEJRIEiM'FJ OP HIS LIFE LAST XIGHT STRENUOUS FILIAL DEVOTION While Endeavoring to Adjust Sonic Family Difference* '" He Is At iaelced by Eight Stnrdy Young Children. ; Patrolman Moses Zimmerman encoun tered filial affection in large quantities last nrfght that nearly caused him the loss of several sections of facial epidermis j to say nothing of many tufts of valuablel hair. When he and Officer Swanson werej patroling their beats last evening they! were approached by a woman in a state of hyper-agitation over the conduct of her husband, one William Conley. who resides on L'Orient street near Glencoe. Mrs.. Conley managed, after some effort, being a'oout half cut of breath after a six blocks' sprint, to say that her husband had been misbehaving himself, both as to language and deeds and ehe added entreaties that the officers should go to j her home and assist in the quieting of her spouse. Officer Zimmerman started out on his task of reconciliation and so*>n ifound; paternal affection in the Conley domicile' was of the strenuous character. Mrs. | Conle3 r is the mother of eight children of varying ages and, physical ability, which they apparently syndicated for che time being on Officer Zimmerman to good effect. While he endeavored to arbitrate! the matter with the large ones in front! of him, the smaller and more agile mem-; bers of the family made a nank move-; ment and attacked him from the rearJ They clambered up the official back, and; twined their arms around the official: neciv, while the larger ones began charg ing the official breastworks irom the front. The result of the dashing onslaught was that Officer Zimmerman was stretched! prone in the Conley front yard, with the younger generation of Conleys endeavor ing with their concentrated might to get at him. For a time it appeared as if the Conley household would be able to resist the at tack, but reinforcements in <.ne shape of Officer Swanson appeared on the scene, and the Oonley forces withdrew and of fered to parley. The united forces of the law were in no mood -or an armistice, however, and they gathered up Mr. Conley, senior, and departed with him for the station, while his loyal little family made the neighbor hood resonant witn their expressive lan guage conveying eight different impres sions each held of the police department in general, and the two representatives present in particular. Officer Zimmerman did not sustain any serious injuries as the resuit of his experience, but he gave it out to his fenow officer last night that hereafter when he goes to bring peace into a discordant household he will first inquire as to the number of inmates and as to their disposition, pugnacious or otherwise.

Memorial services, in the form of a patriotic programme, were held last night in the Park Avenue Congregational church, under the auspices of the choral association. Chaplain Leslie R. Groves, of the Fourteenth United States infantry, presided over the meeting, in the ab sence of the pastor, who wa; anaM^ to ■attend on account of illness. Chaplain Groves delivered a short address on the "Life of Washington." His address was in part as follows: "Patriotism in this country is a sub ject from which God is not excluded, but intimately included, and for this •«ea sori it is appropriate that lessons of pa triotism should be taught in the church. "From the life of Washington there are many lessons to be learned, but the one that stands out most strongly is that of disinterested patriotism, for Washington was disinterested in all his actions. He was no practical politician, serving his country only in so far as his services tended to benefit himself, but as the servant of the people. Among ali the great names of this country, I think with but one exception there is to be said which in a measure lessens the greatness, but not so with Washing^ ton, and his true greatness has brought to his name honor and devotion exceed ing all others. "The question arises, To what extent may patriotism develop without embrac ing Christianity? Experience has taught us that morality without religion soon fades, and finally disappears, and this is the great danger America has to contend with today. We are each year becoming a little more lax, and losing the firm grip that our ancestors so vacom,promis ingly held in earlier days. Little by lit tle we exact more of others on Sunday, until it is no longer a sacred day of rest and prayer for a great number, but rather a day on which their efforts have to be doubled. What has been the re sult? If you knew the young man of today as I know him, you would see cause for alarm. If you ltnew the moral tone of many that we are sending into our newly acquired lands, you would feel deeply pained, for you would readily see that instead of civilizing the people, their moral status will be lowered. The* reme dy for all this is the inculcation of the lesson of the life of Washington into the youth of the present day."

The - establishment of a hos- j. pital, he saiu, he had always considered one of the noblest forms of charity and i consideration for our fellow men, and j he took great pleasure in, congratulating : the Norwegian people and the Lutheran i church, and thanking them in the name ' of the city for this contribution toward ! the facilities for the care of the stck and ! disabled.

A largely attended and enthusiastic meeting of the Smith and Ries club was held last evening at Eureka hall, Uni versity avenue, .near Western, and ad dresses \«ere delivered in German and English, a'hd ift'some cases in both lan guages, by a number of the best known Democrats of that portion of the city. Burkhardt" Phillips presided over the meeting. John S. Grode, who was the first speaker, spoke in German, reviewed the present Democratic administration of city affairs, contrasting it with the preced ing Republican administrations, greatly to the disadvantage of the latter. He spoke in high terms of praise of Robert A. Smith, and also of Andrew J. Ries, candidate for nomination on the Demo cratic ticket for the office of alderman of the Eighth ward. O. H. O'Neill, assistant county attor ney, and candidate for nomination for the office of municipal judge, who fol lowed Mr. Grode, spoke in English, and explained the method of voting under the new primary law. This law, he said, he considered an improvement over the former system of nominating by conven tion, but still it was not entirely fair, as under some circumstances its provisions worked to the partial disfranchisement of some of the voters. He considered it a violation of the secrecy of the bal lot to make a man declare before the election board at a primary election what ticket he had voted at a previous elec tion, or what one he intended to vote, and he felt sure that provision would at certain times keep many from voting at the primary elections. Francois Martin, of the Volkszeitung, the next speaker, delivered his address in German, com mending in high terms the present admin istration and the official record of Rob ert A. Smith in particular. Frank Ford, candidate for nomination for the office o£ municipal judge, spoke in English, declaring his fealty to the Democratic party and his desire to see Robert A. Smith re-elected. A. J. Ries brie&y addressed the meeting first in German and then in English, con cisely stating his principles. He said it had been said that he had been induced to run by certain Democrats who were going to furnish $2,500 for his campaign, and also that the street railway company was going to furnish $2,000 for his cam paign, but' both of those, reports were false. He was not going to make a money campaign for two reasons—in the first place he had no money to spend, and beside that he considered it wrong to buy votes, and did not want those that had to be secured in that way. T. J. McDermo-tt, in a dispassionate manner, censured the official career of Matthew Buntz, present alderman from the Eighth ward, and candidate for re nomination. He characterized Mr. Bantz's conduct in the matter of the election of city attorney and county commissioner as traitorous to the party which had elected him and which looked to him for faithful service in return. If he found that he could not do as his Democratic constituency he should have re signed. T Nic Hertges, candidate for nomination on the Democratic ticket for the assem bly, and F. I;. McGhee also s>poke. TO SPREAD THE CAUSE SPIRITUALISTS ORDAIN -; MISSIO.V ARIES AT YESTERDAY'S SEIS-SIOX.

DAVID MORGAN SURPRISES SOCIALISTS BY HIS A DDK ESS THEY CANNOT BE ABOLISHED America's Industrial Supremacy line to Gigantic Corporations Reduc ing Expenses of Production- Government Control Needed. Rev. David Morgan delivered an ad dress yesterday afternoon before the So cialists' club in Pfeifer's hall on the sub ject of "Trusts." Mr. Morgan's address was something of a surprise to a great many of the members of the club, for he failed to condemn them. Mr. Morgan took up the history of the trusts from their earliest organization and said they were the resul* of an ex amination started by a socialist of New York. This man raised a cry against the number of drummers employed by the different wholesale houses in the city, saying expenses of keeping these men on the road must be paid by the consumer. His cry against the drummer was taken up by people all over the country and by the manufacturers and wholesalers as well. in order to save this expense large commercial interests were combined to save this expense. "The first trust formed," said Mr. Mor gan, "was the whisky trust. The differ ent distilleries were combined under one management, and each one was assigned a certain territory into which it should ship its products. All the drummers were taken from the road, and the ex pense of placing liquor on the market was greatly reduced. While expenses were reduced, the price of the product was not in the least affected, and the profits of the distiller was materially in creased. "The success of the whisky trust was so satisfactory that the different branches of commercial industry took up the idea and formed trusts. The Stand ard Oil company was the next corpora, tion formed under the idea. It was per haps the most successful one that has been organized, and introduced methods that compelled those concerns which le fused to enter the combine to close up buisness. It started the idea among railroads of discriminating among indi viduals. "Since the formation of the Standard Oil trust almost every other industry in the country has fo.ilow*d the idea, and trusts have been formed in every branch i of trade. There is now a steel trust an iron trust, a cracker trust, and so on embracing every branch of trade. "These trusts are a good thing for the country, and have resulted in making this the greatest commercial nation in tne world. The trust simply means the majcimum production at the minimum expense. This enables the country to take Its place at the head of all the na tions of the earth, for it can produce the goods needed at a lower expense than can the other countries of the world "It is folly for us to talk of doing away with the trust. One might as well say to the city: 'Do away with the elec tric car and use the mule again;' or to the farmer: 'Throw away your self-bincU err.nd get out she old cradle,' Trust Is but the idea of concentration in its hig-h. est and most practical sense. "But the time is coming when the cap italist will have to learn that this is a country wherein it is better to be the servant of the people and have their love and honor than to be the ruler of them and surfer their hate. The government will have to assume the control of all these large institutions such as the rail roads, and not do away with the trusts but simply to conduct them in the in terest of the people." have a card party, as will also Evening Star Rebekah decree team.

KIMniLL LECTORS OX CHRIS. Til AX SCIENCE IX GRAXD OPERA HOUSE EVERY SEAT WAS TAKEN Scientists Do Not Believe in Per sonal Devil or an Infinite Hell—Tfticliinxs of Christ. E. A. Kimball, of Chicago, a lecturer of the_ First Church of Christ Scientist o£ Boston, spoke before an audience in the Grand opera house yesterday afternoon that completely filled the structure. Every seat down stairs was filled, tha balcony was in a like condition, and the gallery held its quota. Those that ar rived late in the afternoon were obliged to stand in the aisles and many had to leave owing to the lack o£ room. The lecture wa3 under the auspices, of the First Church of Christ Scientist of this city. Mr. Kimball did not take up the scien tific reasonings for his creed, but con tented himself with a statement of as sumed facts concerning the ills of man kind and the futility of the reliance of drugs for a cure. He also spoke against the belief svf a personal devil and an in finite hell, maintaining that such were the depraved imaginings of a barbarous and a pagan time. His address was in part as follows: "I ask you to lay aside all differences of creed, politics and other beliefs that you may all stand on one common ground without bias or prejudice and that you may consider whether or not there may be some new methods of relieving the ills of mankind. Having all respect for your mental integrity I shall not indulge in any deep sopihistry, but leave you to farm your own judgments concerning Christian science. "What is the justification for your in vitation here? Why, because Christian Science is drying the tears, reforming the drunkard and curing ills that are commonly called incurable or fatal. Christian Science purports to teach tha science of Godl, and we do not yet know all concerning God, or even common man It does not purport to be anything new, but rather a more eomiplete and compre hensive teaching of the life of Jesus Christ. "This society is trying to do just what Jesus Christ told hi 3 disciples they must do. There are some people who practice one-half of the life of Jesus Christ, ana what So they do? They spend much ot their time in assailing us who try to practice all he taught. " 'Go thou and do likewise,' said Jesus Christ to his apostles, and for 300 years they healed the sick and dying until poli tics with its baneful influence stopped the work. We have resumed this practice ot curing according to God's law. Is God less good, less generous, less willing to help the afflicted than he was 1.900 years ago? Has God changed? I ask you as Christians for an answer and you cannot say that he has. Why then are you warned against us as being dangerous? "Christian Science is revolutionary i:i a certain sense, because it casts down so many idols of superstition that have pre vailed for so long, most of which have come down to ua from the times of pa ganism. Personal Devil Theory. One of the olde that we have to contend with is i £ personal devil. Now. where and what is this personal devil? The only reasonable answer that can be given is that sin Is the devil. But then sin reduced to its fundamental basis is in the thought, and should peo ple cease to sin tonight, at that time the devil would pass away. They tell you the devil fell from heaven. Do they make devils there? If so, you had bet ter stay away. With the Christian Scien tists the devil Is merely cvl!. Many re ligions require a devil as a prime neces sity for the theological foundation of their belief. The eternal hell is another. Idea that must be done away with, as there never was a grosser piece of ignorant imag ination than this fallacy. It's absurd. Evil is finite, and cannot become infinite! It is a finite misconception of that which is right and proper. Hell is simply the finite punishment that is inflicted on him who sins. What is the use of bell? You scare a man into heaven. The only im mortal thing is the infinite goodness of 3od. and rest assured that this will never i>rook the companionship of a personal ievil and an infinite hell. Arother ideal is that man is naturally bad. Christian Science comes to main tain the rights of man, and that he is lot a worm of iniquity, and a mere bub ale on the sea of destiny. .Likewise it :omes to dispel the belief that the sci ence of medicine is a cure for the ills^ >f humanity. Man has no business to be' sick. It is unlike and contrary to God; t is not necessary that you should be =ick and suffer to go to heaven. Did nedicine originate, in a Christian age? NTo. Its history shows that it began in Dagan times, and came from pagan srie^ts. Christian science will not sub mit to the supremacy of matter, but to :nat of mind, the greatest potentiality n the world. Drugs have destroyed more ives than all the pestilences and famines combined. They are purely experimental. [ would not entirely prohibit the use of irugs if I were able to do so. I was lealed of a fatal disease, and I know what it would mean to do away with irugs. Christian science is pleading for a right :oncep-tion of God, and if you turn away ;ne- inch from the fatal belief of death pou will find yourself with less fear and more strength. I FOR BETTER SCHOOLS STATE INSPECTION FOR COUNTRY DISTRICTS A NECESSARY AID EDITCATORS IN FAVOR OF IT Will Again Ask Legislature to Grant It—Views of County Superin tendent Freeman, of Blue Earth. Although the last session of the leg islature killed the bill providing for ru ral school inspectors, the Idea has not been killed but has been agitated more extensively than ever before, and ths county superintendents desiring it are preparing to bring it before the next ses- » sion of the legislature, when they feel sure that it will be passed. When tho bill was introduced last year the idea was a new one and it had never be^n discussed to any extent and there was no systematic effort to secure its favor able consideration. A number of county superintendents, who have been in St. Paul during the past week, express entire confidence that the next legislature will act favorably upon the proposition. County Superintendent W. IS. Freeman, of Blue Earth county, is among the most enthusiastic champions of the bill. He thinks that if the state high and graded schools need inspectors, much more do the normal schools. He says ru- „ ral schools are not what they should be and help is needed. Ha says: Those who have given the matter of state inspection of high and graded schools some consideration will not ques tion that the greatest good has oome from it. The inspectors of these schools go from one town or city to another, carrying with them the best ideas and method's of all the schools inspected. Ex cept in very extraordinary and highly justifiable cases; these inspectors do not attempt to dictate to the principals or superintendents of such city schools. A wise inspector will unite his authority with the influence of the principal or superintendent, and togther will secure through the board of education such building, suah apparatus and such teach ers as the conditions of the school may require. How many times have I, and how many times havo you, heard prtci pals and superintendents express a wish that the inspector would come in order that necessary changes might be made in teachers or school equipment? Before passing to tine real question at _ issue, it will be well to compare the con ditions governing the inspection and su pervision of the common schools of a county with those of the city. Far ths purpose I shall take the city of Mankato and the county o>£ Blue Birth. 1 select these two because of a personal knowl edge of each. I believe a perfectly paral lel case may be drawn from any county in the state. Some may say there are few counties in the state with as many teachers as Blue Earth. In answer to which I must say that there are few cities in the state with as many teachers as Mankato. Mankato has one superintendent, Blue Earth has one. Mankato has forty-one rooms to be visited. Blue Earth has one hundred forty-three, excluding live inde pendent districts. Mankato schools are confined to five buildings, no two or which are more than tw?> miles apart. Blue Rarth has one hundred forty-three buildings scattered over nine hundred square milea. Mankato has nine months school, during all of which time inspec tion and supervision may be carried on. Blue Earth has lesa than eight months school on the average. Mankato schools open, iiave their vacation, and close unl formily. Blue Earth schools open from the Ist of September to the 15th of No vember, and close at sundry times. Man kato has forty-one competent teachers. Blue Earth has one hundred forty-three teachers, 20 per cent of whom are profes sionally trained 1, 33 per cent are without any experience whatever, and many of tlwwn with no more than a very elementary education. Mankato lias few changes amnng its teaching force. Blue Earth changes ful ly one-third every year. By a similar comparison with some of the smaller towns of the county much greater differ ences would appear, but 1 consider the comparison a typical one.
