For City Secretary JOHN B. HINES. BRYAN, TEXAS, FEBRUARY 9, 190'J. Don't Blame the Legislature. Those legislators who are crying "A subsidized press" and making bold the ascertions that the country papers ara under the thumbs a corporations and illegitimate business enterprises, are surely suffering from diseased minds. With such reaks In the law making body, it Is perfectly plain the insane asylums ought to be made larger. Nacogdoches Sentinel. It is unfr.lr to blame tbe legislators. One of them, Hon. Roger Eyrne, used the language you object to, but he was quoting Governor Compbell. Since the governor has not denied saying it, it is fair to hold him responsible. It was an insult to every country paper in the state and seme of these which have been strong supporters of the governor are resenting it as it d serves. True religion is of God, sectarian ism i3 of the devil.. The secret service is one busines that 'does not advertise. In the interest of good morals let us have no more laws that encourage perjury and hypocrisy. A good many people regard the cock lebur as totally depraved and can never be converted. A LESSON FROM THE TRUSTS. The trusts are responsible for much evil but, whether they intended it or not, they have done great good in dem onstrating to the world the power of co-operation on a large scale. They have shown how by means of organi zation waste can 'be eliminated and the highest degree of effectiveness de veloped. Scientists have taken the hint and by means of better equipment and a division of labor, secured through co-operntlon, have in the last ten years made more discoveries than had been accomplished in all the preceding cen turies. The churches and other relig ious and moral Institutions have ceased to fight each other and are now making common cause for the uplift ing of humanity over all the earth. And, most Important of all, statesmen have learned the folly of wars, by which even the victor is a loser, and are laboring to perfect a system of in ternational co-operation which has al ready progressed so far that no nation goes to war without the consent of others. The trusts have demonstrated that great things can be accomplished by co-operation and in no other way. The town where the people are organized and all worklnng together for the com mon good never fails to prosper. whereas the reverse is true of the I .fuMf place wheie faction is rife. If lioral Club people of this city want a greater and! it Is Morn a Deuer ani a mere oeaumui Bryan they must get together and work sys tematically. He who allows petty prejudice or spite or any private grouch to stand in the way of any effort or enterprise for the common good is a public enemy.

Duffy, rector at St Andrew's Episcopal church; Rev. J. A. Chal lenner, paster of the Christian church; Rev. S. W. Kendrick, State evange list; and Rev. A. B. Wait, assoclational misstonary. The music for the occasion was un der the direction of .Mrs. H. O. Boat wright, and was a magnificent pro gram, faultlessly rendered. Dr. T. H. Morris invoked the divine blessing, thanking God for the great gift of His son, for His precious prom ises and for the church. He asked a blessing upon the speaker, and that he may speak with a tongue of flame and that the people may bear as'for eternity. x Dr. Truett read for the scripture lesson tne 9th chtpter of Luke, and his brief comments as he read were gems of great beauty and prepared the congregation for the masterful ser mon that was to follow. Bfeore an nouncing the text, he took occasion to express his joy in being present to worship with the church and re ferred to the meeting he assisted in holding here several years ago. His theme was "Self Sacrifice" and the Jext was from the 16th verse of fhe 17th chapter of 2nd Chronicles "And Amasiah willingly offered him self unto the Lord."

It was the greatest day i:i its history. It was a day of the great basic niinoinles that nil Ka,.. great things, a day of great sacrifices and withal a day of rejoicing. Since the new churcu was erected the congregation has labored under a burden of debt, and soon after the new pastor. Dr. Weaver, came, it was resolved by him and the leaders of his congregation, that this debt should rifices 'must be made willingly, and that God's business must be the chief aim and purpose of redeemed nn and women. Around these two granite pillars he builded a message tat breathed the Inspiration of Heaven itself, and was beyond question one of the grandest flights of pulpit elo- an.

"Mrs. Temple's Telegram" the fam ous farce comedy which had such a record breaking run In New York City and Chicago is one of the pleasing an nouncements for the near furture. As a healthy, fun provoking farce, bubbl ing over with laughable situations at every turn, the play Is proving to be on this, having purchased a beautiful j even in greater popular favor thi and prominent lot on Coleman Street, with a frontage of 1C6 feet, extending back 208 feet. It is central and has a south front. Plans are now under special work, and they will goon be perfected, and then bids for the build ing will be submitted. Rev. I. F. Betts, the pastor, Is greatly encouraged and feels sure that the enterprise will go right through to completion. His peo ple have advanced his salary three hundred dollars over previous years, now fixing it at $1800. We congratu late the pastor and his people on their purpose to go forward in that impor tant community, and Marlin will take her place as one of the best Churches in the Texas Conference.
