Colonel Chlperfield. big, power

tions on "Business and Govern
Brsat" with the force of a legal
mind. He left no question In the
Binds of his hearers, being plainly
spoken. He made numerous start
ling assertions as to the probable
consequences of mis-government
aad the sacrificing of community
thought to the attainment of
wealth and of what rule by right
Of wealth may bring unless ten
dencies in that direction are
checked, and checked soon.
Community Personality.
Colonel Chlperfield sought to im
press upon the minds of bis hear
ers the sacred duty of a chamber
of- commerce to promote community
cooperation in not only business but
social lines as well. A commun
ity should acquire a distinct per
sonality as a community, he as
serted, and the people therein
should work on and on to an unat
tainable goal. It a letup occurs,
then business becomes a failure,
he declared.
Anytime a person or community
settles down to a state of self
satlsfactlon and feels there is no
longer any necessity for going on,
then it constitutes a step backward,
the speaker declared.
"In days to come communities are
going to be judged as communities,"
. ho spoke. "Communities must then
attain a high standard or be Judged
failures, Just as an individual is
oftlmes regarded as a failure by
his tellowmen.
"These are reasons why cham
bers of commerce are being formed.
Organisation gives all minds a
chance to work as one towards
progress for a community."
Government and Wealth.
The speaker delved into the sub
ject of wealth as related to govern
ment He declared that wealth he
hind any government makes that
government a failure. He expressed
the hope that sometime the poor
man will have as much chance to
attain political prominence as the
man of wealth, and chambers of
commerce, working not for wealth,
but for the masses, will be the med
ium through which this is brought
The present period of unrest
among certain classes came in for
a touch of the speaker's oratory.
He declared this rumbling beneath
the surface is caused by those who
believe they are not getting a fair
hare of the good things of the
world. He forecast that it depends
upon the patriotic men and women
to submerge their own selfish de
mands to save the country.
The time has gone by for pussy
footing. Colonel Chlperfield de
clared. He doesn't anticipate that
a dreadful calamity is going to
overtake this country but spoke
that it is to prevent any such possi
bility that chambers of commerce
work against He declared that the
chamber forms the bulwark of the
"The chamber of commerce
should be the eye that sees: the
mind that Initiates and the hand
that executes or restrains," he said.

said. "When I hear the Tolces of

Oh, God, we thank Thee for this
universe, our great home; for its
vastness and its riches, awl tor
the manifoldness of the life which
teems upon it and of which we are
part We praise Thee for the arch
ing sky and the blessed winds, for
the driving clouds and the constel
lations on high. We praise Thee
tor the salt sea and the running
water, for the everlasting hills, for
the trees aad for the grace under
onr feet
We thank Thee for the sense by
which we can see the splendor of
the morning, aad hear the Jubilant
songs of love, and smell the
"breath of the springtime.
Grant us, we pray Thee, a heart
wide open to all this Joy and beau
ty, and save our souls from being
so steeped in care or so darkened
by passion that we pass heedless
and unseeing when even the thorn
bush by the wayside is aflame with
the glory of God.
Enlarge within us the sense of
fellowship with all the living
things, onr little brothers, to whom
Thou hast given this earth as their
home in common with us. We re
member with shame that in the
past we have exercised the high
dominion of man with ruthless
cruelty, so that the voice of the
earth, which should hare gone up
to Thee in song, has been a groan
of travail. May we realise that
they lire, not for Thee alone, but
for themselves and for Thee, and
that they lore the sweetness of
life, even as we, and serve Thee In
their place better than we in ours.
When our use of this world is
over and we make room for others.
may we not leave anything ravish
ed by onr greed or spoiled by our
Ignorance, bnt may we hand on
onr common heritage fairer and
sweeter through oar use of it, un
diminished in fertility and joy,
that oar bodies may return in
peace to the great mother who
nourished them, and our spirits
mar round the circle of a perfect

analyses of their own states for
many weeks before the traveling
reporter arrives. Sometimes, for
local reasons, the resident news
papermen do not print all that they
feel about their own states. The
political wayfarer usually agrees
not to disclose the source of his in
formation and thus picks np in
valuable information. This is the
season of the year when many re
porters will travel extensively to
find out how other sections of the
country are politically inclined
and if one has built up a string of
friends in every Important city
from coast to coast and knows the
personal equation of each man and
his ability in the past to Judge his
own state, the task of analysis is
bound to be reasonably accurate.
Minnesota Is Hardlntr'g.
Take Minnesota, tor instance.
Both Democratic and Republican
newspapermen will confide to yon
that aa things look now Senator
Harding will carry the state by a
good majority. The third party
movement failed to materialise
and the only question In dispute
among observers is whether the
state will go for Harding by 100,
000 or, as some conservatives put
it by 25,000. Anyway no Demo
crat of standing is claiming Min
nesota is as close aa it was in 1916
when Wilson almost won the elec
toral rote.
The reasons for Harding's
strength here are quite simple.
Much of the electorate is Scandin
avian and German. The Germans
are bitter against Wilson for his
war record. They voted for the
"he-kept-us-out-of-war" slogan in
1916 because they wanted to be
kept out of a war with their fath
erland. They cherish resentment
and will show it at the polls.
Scandinavians Against Leagae.
The Scandinavians are very
much impressed by pacifist doc
trine and many have been persuad
ed to believe the Republican cam
paign idea that the League of Na
tions means war Instead of peace.
Even though Norway and Sweden
have Joined the league, the Scan
dinavians here are against the
league. Their opposition has been
carefully cultivated by a Republi
can press. With only one or two
excentions. all the influential news
papers of Minnesota are Republi
can and nave been feeding the peo
ple Hiram Johnson doctrine. Even
those who lavor tne league uuce
their stand behind Senator Kel
logg, who voted for the Lodge res
ervations, and the number who
want the league as brought back
by President Wilson is negiigtniy
Oppose G. 0. P. Management
This territory is so friendly to
Harding that it even draws a dis
tinction between the managers of
the Republican candidate and the
nominee himself. For instance, the
writer encountered considerable
dissatisfaction here among Repub
licans with the course of the Re
publican national committee In
handling the senatorial investiga
tion of campaign funds. It ia a
matter of common gossip that Gov
ernor Cox's figures of a $100,000
quota here were correct and that
the Republican leaders made a big
mistake when they failed to ex
plain it Hereabouts, they don't
think it is sinful to contribute
$100,000 to run a campaign, and
they would have preferred an ad
mission of the quotas coupled with
a demand that Cox prove that any
of the money was used or would
be used tor corrupt purposes.
They think, too, that It waa unwise
to fall into Cox's trap by permit
ting; the diversion of the nubile
interest tram the league issue to I

The first chnrch council was

Wendt Mr. Wendt is still in the
ranks of the active members to
day. The Sunday school was then
organised. Rev. Theodore Krue
ger of Cumberland, Ind.. was ap
pointed minister of the new
church. He assumed his duties in
April, 1896, but from January to
April of that year the pulpit was
filled by Rev. F. Rasche.
During the pastorate of Rev. Mr.
Krueger the church became affili

of America and purchased the
church of the English Methodist
congregation, located on Ninth

Rolf, present pastor of the church,
took the pulpit In July. 1908. Rev.
J. Jans of Muscatine came to Rock
laland every other Sunday after
noon and preached.
By this time the congregation of
the church had grown considerably
and the church quarters on Ninth
street was not meeting with the
growth of the church activities. So
on March 21, 1912. the building waa
sold to the B'nal Jacob synagogue
for $3,000. The building commit
tee to figure on a new church was
composed of George Waldmann,
Carl Krueger, Gustsv Krueger,
Henry Faust, C. H. Seidel. Robert
Mogler, E. F. Born. Albert Red
man and Walter Lena. Two lots
on Twelfth street and Twelfth ar
enue were purchased for $1,900.
The cornerstone of the new church
was laid on Sunday afternoon, July
18. 1912, with Rot. J. Jans of Mus
catine officiating. Until the time
of dedication of the church on
Sunday, March 30, services were
held in the old Y. M. C. A. build
ing. The total cost of the new

Adolph H. Levin, popular window
trimmer for Young ft McComb and
one of Rock Island's most active
Christian workers, enters Eureka
college next week to prepare him
self for the ministry. Mr. Levin is
well known in "Y" work. Boy Scout
activities and other organizations
for religious work, especially
among young people.
His most definite and outstand
ing service has been with the Fif
teenth Avenue Christian church
where he is an elder and a recog
nized leader In several activities of
the church and Endeavor work.
Under his superintendency the
Sunday school has grown till some
of the classes have been compelled
to find rooms outside the church
building. For the last several
months he has been teacher of the
Comrades clan which has had a
phenomenal growth in numbers and
activities. This summer this class
with Mr. Levin arranged and
financed a two weeks' camp at
which time they entertained a group
of 10 boys (Chicago fresh-air chil
dren) besides putting over other big
His talented young wffe is indeed
a loyal companion in Christian
service, being president of the
Loyal Daughters class and church
pianist, besides being identified
with other lines of religious work.
The little church is proud of its
contribution of these consecrated
young people to the larger service
though their going will leave vacan
cies that will be exceedingly bard
to fill.
That Mr. and Mrs. Levin may
know of the appreciation of the
work they have done and that their
friends wish for them unlimited
success in their chosen work the
evening service Sunday will be
given over to a farewell with a spe
cial program of music followed by
short addresses by those who have
been associated with Mr. Levin in
religious work and a cordial invi
tation is extended to any and all
who would honor the couple. The
program will begin at 7:30 and the
pastor, Rev. Guy B. Williamson,
will have charge.
