SOME MYSTERY SURROUNDING THE AFFAIR lUlleved to llnve Itnrn Aiteop nt the Time of the Aconlent Story of the WHtclimnti ol the MIMrnnkee. Js'Ight Watchman Ed Martin of the Mil naukco yards found James Hughes , n switchman for the Burlington railway , lying between that company's iracks where they cross Sixth street at G o'clock yesterday moriilnR. Hughes wns unconscious nt the timo. His head and face wcro covered with blood and his left arm was lying by his side , mangled and torn by the wheels which had passed over him. The patrol wagon was rum ; up ixnd ho wns tnkcn to St ; Bernard's hospital , whcro medical nld was given him. Ho wa * found to bo In such a precarious con dition that the physicians did not think It advisable to pcrfotmany surglral operation upon him , but merely applied such restor atives ns they could with a vlow of bringing him buck to consciousness. All efforts wore fruitless , and shortly after 115 oYlock ho died. An examination of the body disclosed the fuel that his skull was fractured in the rear. His fnco and head wore badl.v cut up , but It wns probably ttio fracture Unit cau.scd.dcath. Hughes was 4U years of ago and lived with his wlfo nniHlvo children on South eighth Rticet Just below the Kock Island tracks. Ho was formerly employed by Wlckhum Bros. , but lately has bcoti a section hand on the Burlington. How ho met his death it Is Impossible to say positively. Ho quit work nt 0 o'clock Friday night and no one knows whcro ho went , although there Is n rumor to the effect that ho drank some before leaving to go homo. There was no train passed the spot whcro bo wus found lying after 11 : ! iJ ( o'clock at night , so that ho could not have boon struck later than that time. Ho must have been walking along the truck or else lying asleep upon the track when the train hit him. The general opinion Is that he was asleep. Before fore 11:30 : o'clock there were three trains that passed thespot , but-nono of thcircrews admit.ttmt they saw him or know that any thing had taken place. There will probably bo no inquest. Mi : . MOOIIK'S NUW LIFE. How n AVrll Known Omaha Mnn Was Olvou n > uw Ijeimn on Hupplne * * . In the Morse Dry Goods company's passenger elevator , the .gilded cage that carries the busy thousands upand down from the basement to the roof of the bis building in Omaha , there is a man who is more than an object of in terest to hundreds in the daily multi tudes.Mr. . Moore is well known in Omaha , and has seen bettor daye , days when ho was the employer of hundreds of men , but.failinghcalth brought finan cial reverses and his friends and ac- .quaintances saw him gradually suc cumbing to what appeared to bo the in evitable. They witnessed the brave , manly but hopeless struggle ho was making , watched him grow frailer day by day , until the time came when his thin hands had scarcely strength enough loft to work the lover in the elevator , and many of the moro thoughtless in the multitude of regular customers idly wondered if ho would bo able to hold his place another week. Suddenly they noticed a great improvement in his condition. His fin gers 'ceased to tremble. The little stool beside the lever was not occupied us con stantly as formerly , and the sense of hopeless weariness so nearly akin to de spair that had been stamped upon his countenance had given place to the joy ous expression of confidence that comes from sudden relief from pain and hope for the future. "What caused the change Mr. Moore told to a reporter yesterday between the halts of the elevator. "It can all be told in ono sentence , " said ho. "It is the Sweetland Remedies that people are talking about BO much now. But it would require many sen tences to express my gratitude or toll the fearful condition 30 years of suffer ing had brought mo to. I feel a deli cacy , naturally , in talking about myself , but for the sake of ethers I feel it a duty to do so in this case. Moro than 30 years ago the physicians pronounced mo'to bo suffering from kidney troubles , a low form of chronic inflammation that slowly extended to .all the urinary organs. The first and most unpleasant complication was a troublesome stricture , fol lowed by serious enlargement of the prostrate gland. I spent thou sands of dollars and t9ok gallons of medicines , but in , spite of the physicians these complaints became chronic , and for 30 years , until a short time ago , I have not known what it waste to to free from pain. In all of this time I cannot recollect of having experienced oven a temporary relief from any of the expensive and elaborate courses of treat ment I received from the physicians. I continued to got worse steadily. Dur ing the lust your it was only with an ef fort that few can appreciate that I hold to my work. I finally reached a point where I realized that I was on my last week of work , that I could keep up no longer. My attention was called "to the Swcotland specific remedies and I consulted the doctors. "My confidence was gained at the start by being told ex actly what was the matter with mo. Al most with the first dose of medicine I was helped , and uftor the first few days treatment I experienced the first relief in thirty years. My troubles disap peared and I was given a now lease of life. Although I have not followed the treatment as I should , I can stimd hero nil day at my work without fatigue and I am growing stronger every day. "I regard the Swcptlund remedies as much moro than ronmrkublo ; they are wonderful , rind I cannot say enough to express my faith and gratitude. " O. C. Finloy , long connected with S. M.

His daughters uro none of thorn able to help him , ns they arc all poor and troubled with sickness in the family.

Rov. Ix0 ! Franklin lectured upon the sub ject "What Is Theism ? " at Temple Israel last Friday evening. Ho rebuked atheism nnd paid his respects to Colonel Ingersoll. The lecturo. In part , was as follows : "Ono of the most dlflicult tasks that con fronts the preacher in his work Is the selec tion of subjects that shall at once Interest and at the same time bo instructive and in telligible to the great masses of tils people. So various , indeed , are the tastes and the dispositions of various people , to Bay nothing of the vast differences In degree that must of necessity exist in education and In cul ture among them , that no minister can hope to reach all his people in the samolccUiio. If u popular subject bo tils tlicmo It is too light for the thitikcr , and If ho cheese to spoakon a philosophical tlicmo It will usually hare a soporific effect upon the average con gregation. Thus , the poor preacher is placed m a.pecullnr position , and it is only when , by fortunate chanco. tip Is nblo to hit upon a subject midway between tlio popular and ttio philosophic ttmt ho may entertain tlio hope of carrying with him all tils hearers. "Tonight , friends , I am fortunate enough to have selected a subject that will fill the need , for though nhllosophlo in its nature , wo shall treat It In a popular wny. Still I must ask of jou to kindly bestow your earnest attention , as a single argument lost may break tlio entire chain of thought. The subject which we shall treat tonight is this : 'What Do Wo Understand by the Term Theism1 ? In other words , whnt do wo mean by acknowledging a belief in God ? DIM'cront Method of Treatment. "At the outset it may bo well to state candidly why wo have selected this subject for discussion tonight. Many of jou will no doubt have gucbsed ttio reason readily. Those of you who heard the nrch-lnfldel , tlio man of perverted loelcnnd of no philosophy , speak at the opera house this week , will surely understand thnt what I say .tonight shall in a scnso bo to counteract the effect of what ho was pleased to say. But this n'so I would say In my method of treating this subject I , ns a reasonable man , differ so widely from him that I almost feel constrained to apolo gize to myself for taking up the gauntlet against him. Ingersoll wins tils nudicnco for the moment by ridiculing the views of his opponents. Wo hope to gain ours by ad vancing reasonable arguments in support of our position. Still , let us not bo too hard on this tioor inildel. He ridicules God and ttio world , not because ho has any great grudge against cither , but because ho makes quite a respectable living .by doing so. Defeated for political pfllco through the machinations of a religious body , , ho was driven to his present platform , and he has so often re peated what he says that I sometimes bo- , llcvo that ho has persuaded himself that in what lie says tbero ls some degree of truth. For this , of course. I am not prepared to vouch , however. J'But this is aside from our present subject. , Inour , next discourse wo shall examine the possibility of atheism. To night" we wish ton investigate the thclstlc belief , or , in other words , belief in God. "In order that womay ( clearly understand any arguments advanced in support of a proposition it is essential that first .ind fore most wo have a clear conception of the prop osition Itself , nnd'for this reason wo start out by stating briefly the thclstiu position , 'namely : ! beliovoIn ono God , the creator of the universe , Who is the Supreme Being , self-conscious and. perfect. ' With us the root excellence of God , is perfection though In thauges past and historically considered the place of this virtue was usurped by the Idea of power. TKIs. ' however was quite natural. Whcii men saw'tho workings of aGed God , who nt will , could call into oxlstcnco a universe , and at will wipe out whole nations nnd peoples , what wonder Is It that they shuddered and stood In terror before this majestic power ? That this idea should have appeared first is as wo have said , perfectly natural , but that it should have persisted to the present day is not so easily explained , except , perhaps , for the fact that the idea of power , of strength and of force , appeals moro strongly to the sensual nature of man than the ideas of holiness una virtue and love. ItnsU of Proof. "But taking it for granted now that wo understand the position assumed by the ttieist. we nsk. "Can ho prove his proposi tion" thnt there exists u God who is n supreme being , self-conscious and perfect ? Before attempting to do so , let us have a clear understanding of the nature of proof. Proof is not demonstration in the same sensn that we may demonstrate that one nud one are two. All proof finds Its basis in similarHhisor resemblances. Because such and sucti an offeci has , always In the paste resulted from such and such a cause , \vj infer the universal proposition that in the future whenever the came cause shall oxis , the same result will Inevitably be the out come. To use a concrete example propounded by ono of my revered teachers. Because In the past'nll men who have lived have died , we make a universal statement that all men are mortal. That all men will die none of us will ever have the opportunity of demonstrating , but because of the similar ities in the nature of men , we believe it to bo absolutely true nnd proved. And now in tlio same sense when wo ask "Can theism bo pro veil i" wo are not asking can it bo demonstrated , for to do so it would bo ncccs- sujy foi1 man to como face to face with God and already In the earliest written parts ot the old Testament It says 'no man shall sec mo and live , ' Those who ask us to demonstrate God nsk of us as much of an impossibility as those who would nsk us to demonstrate for them the force of gravity , or the other with which wo fully believe all possible space is ntlnd. "In attempting to prove God' from the standpoint of philosophy there is yet another truth thnt wo must carefully consider. Before wo can argue about anything we must know all that can bo known about the subject. Ono who has no musio In his soul and one who has had uo musical training is not the proper person to pass judgment on n musical composition. JJUI-UUBU jnuui rcaia on similarities , and us ho has not the knowl edge of excellencies in past productions , ho cannot compare whnt lie now hears with whnt wus produced in the past and , there fore , his judgment is worthless and counts forrwuRht. Andso , too , in Judging of spir itual truths , onqmust bo able to fool cto bo dura venture an opinion. "This is amply proven by the foot that all thourgumonts all Winced by atheists , agnostics tics , Inlidels and nntr-tholsts against the ex istence of God , coia'j not from7 the side of perplexed Intelligence that ciinnot concolvo a God , but rathctffrom the side of the emo tions. What soauiB to puzzle tie ! unbeliever Is the strong convkUon of what ought to bo done by a perfect , being , und tliosu who on this ground JudgoiUiat there is no God , dose so plainly becuuhi ) . thulr intellect Is not largo enough M feel und to know the wisdom of thoiwnys-of God. They waste many words tolling us what they would do If they occuplcdikiie throne of the unlvorso nnd try to nppe/ihao / ttio emotions of the people by tolling uai ttmt thai God Is cruel who allows purcuUito sacrifice their children in His honor or who permits those who uro zealous in worshipping Him to suffer the tortures of an inquisition. Sympathy 'or Ignorance. "Now thcss goiitlomen. or whoso Ignor ance and luck of logic I grant them my sin cere sympathy , overlook ttio jact that no God whom wo worship ever demanded such things , or ever wanted thorn. An.v Jew whoever over mot the martyr's death < liclso not ho- cuuso ho thought that God would bo es pecially pleased with hl % sucntico , but as u hero ho died lighting for some grand principle. Judaism teaches life , love , nappmuss uud joy. Already ttio psalmist has told Us 'Tlio dead shall not pralso God , * Lot the atheists como to us und learn what true religion Is before thuy poito their ridicule or utter their slanders ugalnst us. The great pity Is this , that when men of this slump are gifted with a llttlo eloquence and Imvo tlio power of awakening the risi bilities of tlio people by n few patented jokes that they carry the masses away by their beautiful language , as it i termed , though nine people out of ton who bcllove thnt the agnostic bns converted thorn to his own wny of thinking cannot show a single argument advanced by him. And therefore , friends , public lectures by so-called atheists and In- fldols , even the greatest of them , carry with them but little danger of winning any people ple from their old methods of tnoueht and of action. But this Is somewhat apart from our subject. Lot us return. From the standpoint of science and philosophy wo wish to ascertain now whnt facts in experi ence , If any , point to ttio existence ot n di vine being. "First , wo look to hbtorr , for it is to his tory that science lirstofnllmustalwayslook. Throughout the ngcs , and as far back ns man may possibly follow the tracks of history - tory , wo rind deeply Inherent in the nature of man a belief In something higher , nobler and better than man himself. Even the rudest tribes have had their goda to which they pointed ns something of great magni tude and power. Now , however great nml numerous bo the arguments to the contrary , science nml philosophy must ngrco to this , that ttio very universality of a recognition of some deity points to the fact that In man there Is the lunate Instinct of a higher being. Men felt tlio want of something higher than themselves and. because they could not rise to the conception of a spirit ual God unseen , except in the manifesta tion of His works , they had to make some material .symbol for the idea , of wood or stone , or gold. The idol , lot It bo remotn- bcrcd , did not nt first stand ns God , but it stood simply In the place of a symbol for Him. Gradually , however , tlio signifi cance was lost and In the eyes of thu. barbarians the wood and stotto Itsotf because a God. Now what I wish to show Is tills : Instincts correspond to some thing ttmt exists and are never purposeless. Now because the Instinct of worship ntiaxva itself in the lowest of the human species as well ns in the highest , science must admit that there Is something In tbo universe to satisfy the yearnings of that Instinct call It what you will ; wo call it God. "Again , let us take the scientists on their own grounds , and if they are at all open to conviction they must admit that an Im portant link is' lacking in their chain of arguments. At tlio Idea of God or a creative power they scotT. Science Is their God ; nature is their God ; energy is their God ; force Is their God ; evolution is their God. Look , they say , and bo reasonable. The earth with Its stratifications and varying layers shows nlaltilv that it is not the orn.i. tlon of six days , but rather of numberless neons. Yes , gentlemen , wo say , wo admit that you are right , but the fact that tlio llrst. stories In Genesis nro to bo Interpreted not literally , but in the form of allegories , docs not In the remotest shako our faith in God. Wo tell them tlin' . wo can bo ns truly religious without bcllcvii. any of tlio myths or miracles of the bible literally as wo can If wo believed any or all of them. Orlclu of Mniiklnil. "But they say that Is all very well. But wherefore do you need God , \t till ? Is Ho not altogether useless ? They say , 'Man is but a higher evolution of a lower species , this lower of a still lower , and this again ofa lower yet , and so on until the first life is the evolution from the lifeless particles from which all these have sprung. Gentlemen , wo follow you , wo say ; but tcl * us. If you please , whence came these firs . particles , who created them and who put life Into them ? O never mind , they say , wo don't care about that. But I say that science , that philosophy , that reason , that thought cannot nnd dare not stop here. Beyond the lifeless , soulless particles of matter there must bo a first cause that , brought them into oxlstcnco and gave thorn life. To say that they are self-created Is nonsense , for that would be to say that nothing created Irom nothing and uothinir added to nothing gives nothing. Friends , wn can understand how by the force of inertia a ball will continue rolling in a straight line for ever after it has once boon set in motion , unless stopped by some opposing force , but without that first force to start it , mo tion is impossible. And now , so with the universe. Wo need n flrst cause. After that flrst causa has clvcn life to the lifeless particles , then wn can conciovohow , through evolution , the universe may have como to what it Is. That first cause scientists call nature , force or energy wo call it God. "But yet a single reference , nnd wo shall have concluded for to-night. Science has made w'onderful strides in the last century , generation and decade. It has light ened the work of man ; it has added to nis comforts ; it has re moved many of his disabilities ; it tins straightened crooked limbs and done much else for which wo must be vrateful. But one thing it has not done and never will do , It cannot give life ; it cannot give thought ; it cannot give feeling. "Lot science como to that pitch wherein it can give life , thought , hope , love and pltv unto a man. a beast , a bird , aye , even to a spider or n fly , and in reverence 1 will call it God. But that day will never come. Science may advance to that height wherein it may make a figure so exactly like a man as to deceive usall. . and with electricity or other powers endow it with the power of locomo tion , but it will never succeed in creating a spul that shall live , a brain that shall think , or a heart that shall feel , sympathize and Ity. For these things we need God. Shall ? nsk you , dare I ask you , which is the nobler of these sentiments , which is the grander , which is the moro sublime , which is the moro reasonable ? " AXSO UXVUMEXTS. "A Nutmeg Match , " which , opens a four nights engagement this afternoon at the Fifteenth Street theater , is said to bo a most artistically constructed comedy of Now Kugland life and one which has been received everywhere with great favor. While It Is not of an essentially jolly nature , it affords muclvgratlfleation to tuoso who love to laugh and the theme 2s entirely novel. Unlike Its predecessors plucked from the same soil , "A Nutmeg Match" is rational and its characters are living , breathing characters and ttioir prototypes are seen every day. The showing of a great pile driver in operation is perhaps the strongest feature of the play , and the public will marvel nt the fact that to produce this re markable realistic effect it is nccossury to carry a huge atcam engine and a competent engineer , Manager Burgess has booked for three nights , commencing next Thursday night , nt the Fifteenth Street theater , the great railroad melodrama , Lincoln J.
