8 THE OMAHA DAILY BEE : FRIDAY , MAY 7 , 1880.
THE LOCAL CORNUCOPIA , Filled to Repletion With a Wealth of Varied Happenings. FOUR GOOD HORSES BURNED. Vnndnllflin in the I'tibllc Library The Work of tlio Grand Jury Driving Out All the Cypri ans A VnnilnlUm In tlio Public Library. For seine time buck tlio periodicals of Hie nubile library have boon placet ! upon the tables in tlio book-room iloor for the use of the public. In numbers of cases tlio choicest have cither been stolen or de stroyed. Harpers , Scribncrs , Frank Leslies nuil other leading magazines anil weeklies have been taken from the roomer or 1cfaced by tlio cutting out of choicest pictures anil articles. Tlio librarian and assistants luivo generally been too busy to detect the vandals , and tlio board has never- appropriated money to pay a perbon to detect tlio thieves. It lias accordingly boon decided to keep all these valuable publications within the bar , and require partial desiring to read to make personal application for them , at tlio same time giving his or her name and residence and tlio work de sired. Printed blanks for this purpose have been procured and in a few day.-i will bo placed within the reach of read ers The periodical will bo inspected when returned , and if in any manner injuredmust be paid for by the oll'uiuling party. Ifono.is not returned , it , or Its equivalent , will bo recovered after the manner used In the case of other urop- erty of the library. This system has been in practice in Chicago since tlio library at that place wiH opened , and has been found to bean an excellent check upon those who : ire disposed to bodishonest. The board lias also had prepared printed slips , which interested people may procure , by which they may suggest to tlio same the name of any work which the subscriber may think il would bo advisable to secure for the library. There are blanks for the nnino of the parly making the recom mendation , his residence and the date , together with a place for the name of the work , author , publisher , place of publi cation , number ot volumes , and the cost , if known , of the work. This blank is prepared in deference to the wishes of the best patrons of the library and will doubtless bo appreciated. The librarian reports the largcat num ber of books ever drawn from the library in one month was during hu > t March , when 8,083 were borrowoiK An invoice of books valued at $1.000 was recently added to the library , wliilo another , costing about $3,000 has been ordered and will bo hero soon. Many books of tlio latter are of foreign publica tion and very valuable. While the percentage of fiction remains at about 78 per cent , the librarian notes that there has recently been a gratifying increase in the demand for mechanical works which comes in the main from the employes in our various manufacturing institutions. _ United States Court. A. G. Barber of Elmwood was con victed of forgery and is out on bail await ing sentence. Tlio case of John I. lllair against the city of Wqftt Point lo test the validity of certain bonds has been taken under ad- visoinont by the court. A decision will bo rendered in a day or two. The case of Van Iluson vs. Tiernoj' , involving the proprietorship of the Tier- oey house at Tccuinseh , Nob. , is on trial before Judge Brewer. The petit jury was discharged yes terday until next'July. John Picrson was brought before the grand jury yesterday and remained clos eted with them for a long ; time. Whtn ho was taken back to jail his features seemed as composed as wlicu behind the bars of his cage. There is little doubt that ho adhered to his denial ot any and all knowledge of the murder of Watson B. Smith , the great crime of which ho is suspected. Nellie Nugent , mistress of Jack Nugent , formerly of this city and now of Chicago , was also before the jury , but failed to impart any information as regards tlio perpetrator of the crime. The grand jury will bo discharged this morning. They found but ono indict ment and that is against-tho convict , Mc Carthy , who is now serving a term in the Iowa penitentiary. Ho has been indicted fof inducing the woman Swan to swear falsely in a case in which he was inter ested. JJlncty Noble licit Men ami Women. .Joseph Teahon , of the Wabash route , returned yesterday from St. Louis , whither ho had escorted some of the re cent accessions to Bufl'alo Bill's Wild West. The party consisted of fifty-two Ogalalhi Sioux Indians , from 1'iuo Itidgo , Dakota. Of the number , six were women. Among the whites were Major Jack Burke , "Broncho Bill" and "Squaw Man" Jack Nelson. Among the Indians wore several chiefs of lordly proper tions. Tlio aborigines were dressed in an entirely now outfit , which Mr. Tea hon pronounced the finest and rich est ho had over seen. At every largo station along the line the red men attracted the greatest atten tion , and at several , a colored man or two wore innoconty introduced into the cars , and , when made to confront the In dians , almost turned pale with fear , and lied prceipatoly from the oar. The party reached fat. Louis Tuesday niirht , as did also another batch of thirty-live Pawnees from Arkanhas City. Both parties run- do7.voused at Bullalo Bill's camp. Cote Brillianto , three miles from the city. The show will open on Sunday next , and the first parade take place on Saturday. There are now about ninety Indians in the party , the largest number which over appeared in Cody's enterprise. Driving Out Cyprians , . Some time ago , Councilman Ford di rected the attention of the council to the ' ; disorderly row of dens on the north side of Capitol avcnuo , botwenn Ninth and Tenth streets. The council directed Marshal - , shal Cummings 10 hayo the inmates , , mostly colored prostitutes , to move to other localities , The marshal according ly notified the erring ones. Some of them lett , but others were refused houses wherever they npnlicd , Yesterday , ono of those , Maud MJllor , colored , with sev en of her employes , named respectively . Jlattio Payne , Mary Wilson , Maggie Cooper , Ida Jones , Bell Smith , Fannie Price , and Belle Sanford , were arrested. They will bo arraigned to-day , but us tlioy have paid their fines regularly , the marshal docs not know in what manner | their present oUonco may bo punished. I- * Wrlgltt Stoiio. I' * JIarry Wright , distributing clerk in the f/i pobtolllco , has just returned from Deni- If son , Iowa , bearing with him his bride , r"neo Blanche Stone , whom ho married at It * her parents' residence on last Wednesday , lf Tlio brulo was the leading lady in the v society of her native place , and the wed- tlliig was attended with the happy fea tures which such prominence and alma- bihty generally evoko. The train which bore the groom to the homo of his bride also carried about fifty postal cards' , each containing the well wishes.of an employe I the postofllco ut this place. TIIK COtiOXBfVS DUCATS. TwontyFlvo Dollars of Thorn Disrtp- ponr With a Hold , Swift- Httnnlng Thief. Last night at about 0 o'clock , Fred Wood , the bartender in Colonot Floyd's saloon , on Fifteenth street , opposite the opera house , waited uponjtwo customers. Ho then stood for n moment in the door way , between the saloon and card-room , watching the game being played in the latter. Ho turned lo walk toward the front entrance , outsldo the bar , when ho noticed a man with a stiff hat creeping stealthily behind llio bar and go ing toward the front door. Wood immediately ran to head him oil' , but the fellow shot out the Fifteenth street entrance , followed by the former. A ehaso took place up the alley toward Sixteenth street. The rob ber darted from the alley through a passage between the Chase building and tlio frame store on the corner oi Six teenth street , toward Douglas street- Wood sought to head him off on Six. teonth and the hitter thoroughfare , but by that llmo the fellow had disappeared. It was subsequently ascertained that ho run through the second store of Bush man's building , knocked ( town n couple of triangular sign boards and left for parts unknown. Wood did not know how much money ho had in the till. When ho got back , his silver was un touched but his bills amounting to about $ 2 ? had been stolen. There is no clue to the robber. Ii'OUK HOIISKS nUJINKD. A .Destructive l < 'lro Ijiiat Nl lit at the Union Stock VurilH. Last night , about 10 o'clock , fire was discovered in a barn on the Kennelly place , owned by the South Omaha Land syndicate , and about half a mlle from the slock exchange. When discovered tlio flames had gotlon beyond reach of being extinguished. A number of people from the surrounding country rushed to the scene. John Corcoran , the party renting the place , was in the lead , but ho could not open the door , as the side was envel oped in llamcs. As a consequence , the contents , consisting of two tons of hay , two sets of harness and four horses were burned. In his attempts to save his property , John Corcoran was very pain fully blistered , and will not be able to bo about for some days. When first noticed , the llamcs w'oro bursting from the loft. Nobody is known to have been in the loft , and no accidental means can bo suggested as a cause for the lire. The impression prevails , there fore , that it was the work of an incen diary. The loss will reach about $800 , but it is not known that it was protected by insurance. Tlio City Attorney's Dockets , A reporter of the BKE yesterday was shown the first docket used by a city at torney for Omaha. It was opened in 1857 , and remained in use until 1883. During that time it recorded the court work of City Attorneys Gilbert , Ambrose , Bartlett - lott , Donna , Thurston , Mandcrson , anil Howe , and yet had pages to spare. In the latter year , Mr. Coi'mell assumed the duties of the position , and opened "Docket B. " The rush of cases soon necessitated "Docket C , " and these wore successively opened by the present city attorney. In the twenty-six years the original docket was used it recorded 570 cases against the city. In the three years Mr. Council has tilled his present position , 340 eases have been entered , of which but 1-18 are now pending. The increase of cases has been oven in advance of that of the city. "Where ItlclicR arc Oincloscd. vThe Omaha and Grant Smelting com pany are comtcmplatins additions to their present works which will involve an out- iav of $75,000. The principal of these will bo an engine and machine bouse 70x 52 feet ; a furnace house 100x50 , and thrco stories in height ; a roasting furnace , 105x00 ; a stamping room 75x50 , and a boiler room 30x50 ; They have now in course of erection a brick building which will do away with the present separating works , and is now being built over and around them , the dimensions being 150x 50. These improvements will increase two-fold the capacity of the works and give employment to ono-forlh moro men. The plans will bo ready in a few days , and if llio labor troubles are brought to a close work will bo commenced upon this year. _ Pence Cutting in Onmbn. Mr. and Mrs. M. C. Ha'tton , residing on the Hats near the water works , for a long time back have been accustomed tote to tlio open unfenccd property which there prevails. Lately the water works company undertook to enclose with a wire fence Homo of the property over which the Ilattnns have crossed with im punity. They demurred at Uio fencing and cmpha.si7.ed their hostility by de liberately cutting it in many places. A. B. Hunt , in behalf of the company , had them arrested on a warrant charging them with maliciously destroying per sonal property. They wore released at a late hour last night and will bo arraigned this morning. fl. Herustoln. The struggle for the possession and re tention of a piece of property on Jack son , near Fifteenth street , by Peter Goes and A. M. Bernstein , respectively , was continued yesterday. Bernstein was re inforced by a man named McDonnell. When GODS' men endeavored to dispose of a piece of Bernstein's goods , they were driven oil' by the latter and his assistant. Gees then filed complaint against both for assault and battery. The case will bo hoard on the Mth inst. Ho also brought suit before Judge Anderson to cause Bernstein - stein to keep the peace. This suit will bo tried this morning. Yesterday afternoon the charge of trospabs by liurnstcin against Gees was dismissed ut the former's request , after the jury lied been drawn to hear it , Ijook Out for Tramps. Some of the advance wagons of the Nickel Plato circus came over from the Binds at an early this morning. They wore followed by a number of tramps , some of whom no sooner .sawsomo of our restaurants than they "struck" them for a meal. The impression prevails that there is a goodly number of worthless and dangerous people following this show whom it will bo advisable for people to prepare with a little attention to their pockets and homes wliilo they go to see the circus. _ Men of Nerve , The Onuiha Gun club held its regular weeKly shoot yesterday afternoon at Ath letic park , The contest for the diamond pin and Parker gun , both prizes of the club , was continued. Out of a possible PCOI-O of 20 "Pcoria blackbirds , " W. II. II. Kennedy lilt 18 , thus loading in the match. In a sweepstakes which was af terwards shot , between Kay , Kennedy , Worly , Parmlco , Lceder and others , Ken- ncdy made two 10 scores , taking lirat money , A Fright from a Mat Pallar. Mathew Hoover , foreman of repairs for the Board of Education , was thrown from his buggy on Wednesday and so bruised as to. bo compelled to remain at homo. His horse , a spirited animal , took fright at a pedlar with mats strungovcr his houhlcr , dashed away , throwing liim ou before ho could .bring it uudur con trol. The buggy was greatly injured but before the horse was caught Mr. Hoover was carried to his homo , the accident having occurred on Dodge near four teenth street , in its immediate vicinity. IS rOWDBUIjY A "DEMAGOGUE ? " The Opinion of a Mechanic Who llns Known Him From Childhood. To the Editor : 1 noticed in yesterday morning's issue oi tlio Herald an article headed "Powderly a Demagogue , " pur porting to have been the title which John I. Blair , a railroad magnate from Now Jersey , gave the grand master workman of the Knights of Labor. .Everybody who knows Mr. Powderly , personally or by reputation , knows that Blair was de ceived when ho made that statement , and the paper containing the interview pol luted its columns in publishing it. This great magnate claims , among other things , to have known Mr. Pow derly when ho worked in Ills ( Blair's ) shops in Scranton tor sfl.JJS a day. Now to show you how unreliable this Is , 1 have only to say that Powderly has been a machinist since the closing of the late war , having finished Ills apprenticeship about that time. Ho has been considered a lirst class mechanic by coveryono who knows him. Have you over known a lirst class mechinist to work for $1.125 a day since the closing of the \\arv lam sure Powdcrly is not a man that would work for lets'wages than was paid other men. 1 have known him from childhood and 1 can say emphatically ho did network work as a mechanic for fl.'Jfl in the shops at Scranton or any where else. Blair further claims that Powderly is holding his place in the order for the money there is in it. This is niiotncr falsehood. For ho has been tendered on more * than one occasion the loreiuanship of one of the largest machine shops at % , > QQ a year. He is now getting $ liiOO from llio order , working almost invariably twenty out of the twenty-four hours of the day. He is classed by , Blair as being an illiter ate man. I will wager Sir. Blair that T. , V. Powderly will dictate two letters and write one while he ( Blair ) is dictating ono , and that Powderly's will bo the bet ter literary production. Evidently Mr. Blair is not a great reader , or ho could have read Mr. Powdorly in the "North American Ueviow , " wlicro the product of his mind and pen his appeared during the past ten years. 1 could go over every line of Mr. Blair's printed interview and prove to the pub lic that lie did not know what ho was talking about , from the commencement to the end of his interview. 1 will , however - over , close by saying that 1 have known Mr. Powdcrly from liis infancy and Jiiy long residence in this city will entitle my opinion of a man to as much weight as a biassed railroad magnate. If the country were filled with such advocates as Powderly , there would bo no blood shed in it in the attempt to right the wrongs of labor. Yours truly , THOMAS N. CLAUK , 1418 Douglas street. THE PEELER COAT OP BLUE. The Style of Which Is a Question Bc- tweeii the Police mid Couiioilmcu. At the mooting of the council Wednes day night , Councilman Kaspcr intro duced an ordinance purporting to cotno from the committee on police , defining the style of coat to bo worn during the fcummer as a double breasted dark blue , with sixteen buttons in front , three on each sleeve , and two on each back poc ket. Mr. Goodman claims he never saw the ordinance , and , further , that the kind of coat suggested would bo too warm for summer wear , and prevent the men from doing effective service. This is one of the reasons which more than two-thirds of the noliccmon advance against tlio in troduction of the garment ; besides it is too costly , costing not less than about § 10 , while blue blouses with stars and buttons , and with hat and numbers would uniform them , they claim , sufliciontly well for all practical purposes. These objections are set forth to the council , and comofrom by far the larger number of the police. The Nickel Plato Circus. The W. H. Harris Nickel Plate shows will reach Omaha to-day , and exhibit on the grounds at Eigliteeth street and St. Mary's avenue. The show has re ceived the highest prniso from the press of every locality in which it has exhib ited. The performance is said to bo one of the best ring performances in America , and special pains have been taken to make it as thoroughly first-class as money and talent - ont can make it. The moiuigorio is small but embraces some rare and costly ani mals. The parade takes place at 1050 : ! o'clock to-morrow morning , but there is no pretension made to anything extensive sivo or elaborate in parade features. The camel girl is to bo on exhibition in the main canvas , and is pronounced by St. Paul newspapers to bo the most wonder ful freak of nature over exhibited in that city. Heralding the Festival. The Exposition association has already gotten out a number of thousands of throe-shoot posters , advertising the Juno festival. Some of them are decorating llio bill boards on the building , and others r.ro being sent abroad to be dis played in the railway stations and prom inent places in both this state and Iowa. The printer's art has ingeniously told the story of the operatic and histrionic at tractions of the festival in red , blue and black , and made the bills an attractive and consequently an excellent advertis ing medium.

The plaintiff al leges that on November 5 , 1885 , she mort gaged her household coeds to the defendant - fondant for .50 and that the defendant kept out $0.00 as interest on the $ 50 for ono month. The phiintift returned the money on November 0 , having kept it but ono day , and asked a discharge of the mortgage , which the defendant did and does yet refuse.

Fresh Green Spots. The directors of the Exposition have fenced the green plot on the south side ot the Exposition building. The grass now presents n vary pretty appearance , and it is understood that the directors will prosecute any person who attempts to injure either it or the fence which sur rounds it , IDE CITY IS PHOTOGRAPHED Into a Number of PrashIntcresting , and Newsy Pictures. WESTERN BRAKEMEN'S STRIKE. An Irish Iiorcl Entertaining Work of Crclghton College Chemists The Work of Oonrcrslou Nebraska Khlfchts. The Brnkcntcn'HStrike. - . Yesterday Superintendent Smith of the Union Pacific sent out telegrams to the different division superintendents along the line ordering tlio following notice to bo posted at all stations on the line : XOT1CK OP WA11N1NO. All persons not now In the employ of the Union 1'ncitlc railway company and not hav ing business nt its stations , aio hereby noti fied to keep away from Its depots , tiacks , yaius , switches , property mid structures of every kind and In no icspoct to tiespass thereon. All persons foiiiul Interfering with , Injur ing or claimigliiK Its stations , tracks , cars , lo comotives , or property of any kind , will bo punished to the full extent of the law. S. T. SMITH. This manfesto is intended for the bone- lit of those strikers who have shown an in clination to use violence in attempting to carry their point. Thus far. however , there has been very little of this kind of work and what has been done , has had but trilling effect on the movement , of the company's ] trains.tLWednesday however , at Butte , Montana some of tho'br.ikomen amused themselves bv dumping freight cars off the track , "killing" locomotives , etc. Gen. .Stipt. Smith says that ho is determined to put a stop to this kind of work , at any cost. So far il must bo confessed , the com pany has decidedly the best of the light. I ho strike extends only between North Phitto and Uawlins , and it is now believed that it will bo confined between these points The hundred deputies who passed through Omaha the other night have been sworn in to protect the property of the company and the men working for it. They ; will furthermore act as brakoiucn , and it is believed that the freight trains ou the troubled til visions will soon bo running on schedule lime. The Union Pa cific , as one official expressed itycsterday cannot afford to declare a truce or com promise on Half way ground. It has de termined to push the light , and rid itselt of the obnoxious characters and dema gogues who have long run things with a ilirh hand on the western divisions. The feeling of the railroad men both biakemen and conductors on this tli- vi.-ion , appears to be decidedly in favor of the company. The sentiment expressed - pressed on all sides is that the brakemen on the western divisions have made a mistake in acting as tho. > did. Certain it is that the lirakcmen's Brotherhood and the Knights of Labor are not in sympathy with the movement. TIIK STIEIKHIiS WEAKENING. Since the organization of the strike the Union Pncilio have sent nearly 200 men west to take tlio places1 oft the striking brakemen. These men wore Sent out in squads of fifty , and were- gathered at Kansas City , Detroit and Omaha. The last delegation arrived in Cheyenne yes terday atlernoon. The strikers made an attempt to pick a row with the recruits , but were unsuccessful. Yesterday morn ing train No. 17-was taken from North Phitto to Chpycniio in the charge of freight conductors. Twenty of the btrik- ing brakemen have been discharged at Cheyenne , Sidney and North Pintle. The presence of the rcciiritlng brakemen and the discharge of tlio leading strikers had a bciu-licial cflV'cfc upon the loc-kout braKemen , antPthe entire force at Cheyenne reported to Superintendent Deuel and asked to be put to work. Trains have been sent out from Chey enne , south and cast , and no further trouble is expected at that point. The strikers have caused the company a great deal of annoyance on the Idaho division by damagjngcars , cutting water p.ipos , and committing other depreda tions. There are no trains out ot Lara- mio. Some of the leaders among tho. strikers at Laramie have been arrested for damaging the company's property. The company has acted determinedly in the fight , and the result promises to be a victory for them. The concession of the Cheyenne strikers is a great point gained , and is likely to be followed by a general return of the brakemen all along the line. NOTES AND I'KKSONAI.S. Gen. Traffic Manager Kimball , of the Union Pacific , received yesterday some fine samples of salt from Salt Lake City. D. C. Adams , the well known railroad man of Salt Lake City is in Omaha. A. R. Nowton. traveling passenger agent of the Fort Scott road is in Omaha. J. H. Diiggan of Creston * In. , superin tcmlcnt of the C. B. & ( J. , is in the city. The assistant chief clerk , A. P. Connor , of the Superintendent Smith's office , has resigned and taken a position in the of fice of the Omaha National bank. CUKIG1ITON CJIKKimS. They Oive a Choice Insight Into the Jlcautiful DlHcovericH of the Chemist's Laboratory. A very pleasant evening was spent Wednesday in Crcighton College hall at a lecture given by the members of the chemical circle of the institution. This circle consists of all students belonging to the sciontillc class , ono of them being accustomed to give a private lecture on some given subject , or rather take the place of the professor once m every two weeks , thus giving practice in preparing addresses , and also enabling them to more easily give a public exhibition of their labin'tory practice. The introduc tory address was irivcn by Michael Me- Gnory , who delivered his oration in a manner which was elegant and pleasing , and which did him great credit , Jos. McCardlo , assisted by Chas. Nenicc , then gave his lecture , his subject being "Chemical Atllnity , " Ho explained by numerous experiments , that sugar contains charcoal , that a solid can be made from two gases and that gas lias weight. Ho also made several other beautiful as well ns successful experi ments relating to the subject ho had chosen. John Whaleu , assisted by Charles Frenzor , then took the plat form for the purpose , of explain ing the reaction of chemicals. Ho proved , by experiments that the well known soda water ; has no soda at all in it , but is only a gas which , mixed with water and flavored is sold under the meaningless name of soda water. Dur ing this lecture , the magio lantern was brought into use , in < order to moro thoroughly illustrate the experiments. The subject of orystalization was next taken up by John 15.1'uray , jr. Ho gave a splendid illustration of the magnesium light , which is oven stronger than that of the electric light. The combining of tin in a solution , to copper wire , forming what is called the tin tree , was beautifully illustrated with the aid of the magic Inn. torn and magnifying glass. A lead tree was likewise formed. The assistant in this lecture was Edward Smith. The fourth and last lecture was given by Win. P. Dorau , assisted by Henry Ma- Jono , The young man ehoso for his subject "Group Reagents. " Ho explained why silver , which is in constant use , be comes blackened , and also why men la boring in white lead works become poi soned. This lecture was accompanied by many successful experiments , which proved that the subject was well under stood. Diflercnt songs , which greatly pleased the large and attentive audience , wore given nt intervals , by the College Glee Club. On the whole tlio lecture was a great success , and should show to the people ot Omaha what well instructed boys can do. do.TIIK TIIK iitisii hcmn. A Scion of Ancient Nobility to bo Shipped to Ireland. Pat Murphy is the name of a youne ; man well known in police circles as the "Irish Lord. " Ho was arrested yesterday in an intoxicated condition and locked up for safe keeping. Murphy comes fiom n long line of an cestors , and it is said lias noble relations still living in the old country. Ho came to America several years ago to embark in business , but his love for whiskey has dragged him down so that ho is little better , nt present , than a sot. Ho has repeatedly been arrested for drunkenness , and has many tlmoi been discharged upon signing the pledge. But though ho has repeatedly tried to shako oil the liquor hub It ho has never succeeded , and after a short season of abstinence would plunge anew into his excesses. His relatives in Ireland IUIVP for years sent him an allowance of money , vUh wbfch ho has been able to fcuiiport himself. Wednesday County Superintendent Pierce purchased Murphy a ticket to Ireland and rigged him out in a new suit of clothes intending to send him to the old country. Everything was ready to start him off when suddenly ho disap peared. Search was made for him high and low , but not until yesterday did the po lice succeed in finding him. They final ly ran acr.033 him so drunk that no was hardly able to .stand up. His ticket was gone and It developed that ho had pawn ed his now clot lies. Olllcor Whalen , after considerable trouble found that the tick et had been taken possession of by John McClelland , the Fifteenth street saloon man safe keeping. Ollicer Whalen is now looking for llio pawned clothes , and ' an effort' will bo made to ship the "Irish Lord" to the old country to-morrow. MKI3KING OONVldllTS. The Revival Services at the Christian Church. The storm Wednesday prevented many regular attendants from attending the services , but these who wore present were treated to a very interesting cxcgct- ical discourse. The theme of the speak er , Hcv. R. C. Burrow , was the tempta tion of Jesus as recorded in the fourth chapter of Matthew. Although Jesus was divine , his earthly life was an in tensely human life ; and he met its duties , responsibilities and trials just as wo are required to meet them , a\ailhig himself of no means of defense or guidance , not made accessible to us. He wrought mir acles for other , never for hini'-clf , After his baptism he fasted forty days. Skej- ) tics used to sneer at this portion of this in spired narrative until Dr. Tanner demon strated the possibility of fasting for tlia length of time , without special divine aid. So ho a pcrfcctexamplo to humanity , to bo " tempted in all points as we arc , and yet without sin , " Jesus must reach the extremity of suffering from hunger. When called upn lo relief his hunger by commanding the stones to bo made bread , something his followers should not do , ho evolves nothing from his divine nature , but goes for guidance to the written word , where all his followers can go. When asked to throw himself Irom a pinnacle of the temple relying upon a prophecy that the angels would bear him up , he replies by quoting the passage , "thou shall not tempt the Lord thy God , ' ' that is you shall not put God to the proof. No experiments are needed to demonstrate the truth of the word of God. When the multitude on the day of Pentecost were pricked in their hearts , and asked what to do to bo saved or par doned , and Peter told them , Acts 2 and D3 , to ' 'repent and be baptised in the name of Jesus Christ ; , for the remission of sins , " it was not an experiment to sco if God would pardon them , but an abso lute certainty , and every ono who com plied with the conditions , then as _ now , were pardoned , beyond the possibility of a doubt. No ono who has complied with the conditions of pardon found in Acts 5 and ! ! 8 can doubt the forgiveness of their past sins until they doiibt the word of God. The s peakor attributed the reign of terror in Franco and the present anarchist troubles in this country , larccly to a lack of regard for the word of God. When Jesus was offered all the kingdoms of the world if ho would fall down and worship Satan , his only reply was a quo tation from the written wonf , torbidding the act. What a lesson of reliance upon what is written rather than upon our wisdom , experience or emotions ! The speaker closed with a touching allusion to the tender bonds of mutual suffering that bindh the souls of afllicted humanity to the great and loving heart of the Son of Gou.
