In the spacious armory of the Thurston
TtlllcH several hundred members of the
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints
assembled yesterday morning to participate
In the second of the scries of services which
const'ltuto the Mormon conference. Besides
the ciders there was an unusually largo
number of visitors present , many of them
coming from out of town , but nearly all '
were worshipers , and those who attended
the nervlce , attracted by the novelty of a
Mormon conference , were few In number.
A slight change was made In the program ,
enabling the lecture In which tbu Interest
of the gathering curmlnntcd to be delivered
at the morning session. Elder L. A.
KcrBch , president of the Northern States
mission , who was to have spoken last
night , exchanged placeu with Elder George
Ileynolds , formerly secretary of President
Woodruff and Ilrlgham Young , and the lec
ture on "The Book of Mormon" was made
a feature of the morning service.
After singing a hymn of praise , In which
both choir and congregation Joined , Elder
Reynolds commenced bis discourse. He
said In part :
I once heard n promln ° nt theologian , In
speaking of the bible and other sacred hooks ,
tell of the dKlnctlons between them He
said that In the Instance of the sacred books
of sects olher limn Iho Christians It Is true
that they worn w Hit en for a people who
lived In a single nge , and suitable to those
people alone. On Ihe olher hnnd Ihe bible
was wrlllen for n universal people , nnd Its
teachings were applicable ns well to those
of the pre"cnt day as to the people who
lived In the time of Christ He added an
other argument to point another distinction
Ho nnld that the hvtnns nml psalms of the
blhlo were devoted to the praise of on Im
mortal God. while Iho hvmns anil psalmi of
the sacred book of Iho Hindoos nnd these
of other religions extolled only the virtues
of heroes. Instead of glorifying men the
blblo showed the weaknesses of God's fol
lowers , sparing neither Abraham nor David ,
nor nny other great In the land , whenever
weaknesses overcame them. As I sat and
listened to the speaker I made up my mind
that e\cry argument he advanced atlesllng
to the superiority of the blhlo over other
Barred books was true of Iho Hook of Mor
mon.
CI.I-M with ( he Illlile.
Many have said that Iho Book of Mormon
was Intended to surplnnt the bible , but till1 *
la not true. We accept the bible We be
lieve lhat It Is the history of God's dealings
with men from the beginning of the world
till the dealh of Chrisl. It Is n history more
particularly of God's deillngs with people
of the east Its teachings are universal In
their application being especially adapted lethe
the Jew A But the Book of Mormon Is also
n hlstorv of God's dealings with mankind.
It Is n hlslory of his dealings wllh Ihe an
cient people of America The race whleh
first spread o\cr the two cnnllnents of North
nnd South America was placed on this side
of the seas from their brethren bv n dis
pensation of God. They were the Jarldltc ,
and their history Is told In our sacred book.
Among Ihe prophels , according to Iho Book
of Mormon , was one named Lehl , contem
poraneous with Jercralnh. who taught In
Jerusalem. After the crucifixion and ascen-
elon ofChrist , , there came to this continent
nmong the Jnrldltes n descendant of the
prophet Lehl named Ncphl. Ho came ad
ministering the Pamo teachings and univer
sal truths that Christ taught. From his
visit wo have many traditions still existing
concerning this man. They differ widely In
matter of detail , but all go back to the ono
great teacher.
It has been sold by those who are not
Mormons that the Book of Mormon was
written by ono of our prophets , Joseph
Smith : that he wrote It with the assistance
of several elders. The truth of the matter
Is that e\cry evidence goes to show lhat
Joseph Smith never saw the men who nro
said to have been his assistants until long
after the hook was published. It certainly
would he n great wonder If an Inexperienced
youth , as Joseph Smith wag when ho began
the translation of thin work In 1837. could
have wrlllfn such a book. I am told that
whllo engaged In the Iranslatlon ho came to
that passage which tells of the walls around
Jerusalem , and having never seen a city lhal
vas compassed by walls he Ihought that n
mistake had been made , refusing to go on
with the work until he had verified the
statement bv reference to the bible. And so
I sny that It requires a man mote credulous
to bcllevo that It Is n forgery and n fraud
than to believe that It Is of dlvlno origin.
Joseph Smith performed only those * tasks
which God placed upon his shoulders He
ivas called as a prophet by God. nnd In
choosing Joseph Smith nbovo nil others God
had a purpose. He had a similar purpose
vhcn ho called John Taj lor. the Into Presi
dent Woodruff nnd the present presldcnl ,
Lorln Snow , all of whom believe In the dl
vlno mission of Morrnonlsm which will bring
about the regeneration of Ihe carlh and pre
pare It for the second coming of the Lord
Jesus , who Is to reign In person upon the
earth.
The , service was closed by singing the
Doxology.
.Afternoon mid n\enliitf.
The afternoon conference met at 2 o'clock ,
being opened by the customary singing nnd
prayer. Elder F. A. Waller spoke Inter
estingly on the relation of the prophet lo
God nnd man , frequently alluding to pas
sages of the scripture to lend weight to
arguments for present revelation
The speaker who follow til Elder Waller
vas Elder Joseph Summerhnys. Ills thcma
was , "Blchslngs of Iho Ministry. " "Apos
tasy" was Ihe subject of a discourse by P.
J Williams , after whleh the conference was
adjourned until evening.
The laiscst attendance was reserved for
this final meeting and the armory was taxed
to Its utmost capacity to accommodate those
who were present. After a. prayer by Elder
Mortcnxcn , Elder L. A. Kclsch , president of
Iho Nebraska conference , spoke on "Tho
Mormon's Faith. " The other speakers of
the evening were Elder Thomas Layrd , presi
dent of the Missouri conference and Elder
Neldcr of Salt Lake. The conference was
closed with the benediction.

Rev. T. V. Moore was Installed yesterday
as pastor of the Wcstuilnslcr Presbyterian
church. At the communion service In the
morning fifteen new members were taken
In. The Installation service was held In
the afternoon. Ilcv. Dr Moore comes from
a pastorate of fifteen years at Helena , Mont.
For the communion service he choose hla
text from I Corinthian ? , II , 23. During Iho
course of his Introductory remarks he said
that what Is meant to worthily partake of
the Lord's Supper depends more on the
humble spirit than tbo personal worthiness
of Iho communicant. He cited the parable
of the Pharisee and publican , saying that
Christ chose rather the man who came to
the temple penitently praying and smiting
his breast than the Pharisee who was puffed
up wllh his own sell-righteousness.
At the Installation service In the after

Rev. Dr W W. Harsha , Rev. John Gonftrt

During the progress of the Transmlssls-
slppl Library congress a very Interesting
collection of old and rare books has 'been
displayed at the library building for the In-
upccUou of visiting delegates and the gen
eral public. The volumes are without ex
ception of local ownership , nnd valuable
books have been brought to light whose
presence Inthe city was not suspected even
by Director Paul Charllon , to whoso ciforts
the collection Is due. There are more than
50 volumes on exhibition In a well-lighted
oem on the third Moor , and today will belie
lie lost opportunity given for their Inspec-
lon.
Probably the most priceless work on cx-
Ibltlon Is the Locwo manuscript , one of
wo Hebrew bibles of world-wide reputation ,
t Is owned by the heirs of Dr. Louis Loewc ,
ccretary of Sir Moses Moutefiorc , a famous
Condon banker and orientalist. One of the
iclrs li Fre < l L. Loowe , manager of the Boson -
on store , from whom the loan of the volume
was obtained. The manuscript was executed
u 1496 and Is unrivaled for perfection of
ext. The notes and annotations are done
\lth microscopic perfecllon nnd In lls mc-
haulcal execullon Iho manuscript Is far su-
erlor to Its more ancient rival In the yrlt-
sh museum. The manuscript Is bound In
ortolsc shell and silver and on the co\er
s a Hebrew Inscription done In gold and
liver nails.
Another work of enormous value was ob-
nlned from General Charles F. Mandcrson ,
\ho has owned It for many years nnd has
efuscd many tempting offers for It from
astern libraries. It Is a collection of ancient
maps , collected separately under dates of
publication from 1625 to 1700 and bound In
a largo \olutm . They cover all the known
geography of that time and are of great hls-
orlcal and general value. The map of Vene-
uela shows the Orinoco river as the eastern
> oundary nnd this point was ono of the
; rounds of contention In the dispute of
, 'enezucla with England.
of the Untied StntrM.
The map of the United States presents nn
nterstlng study. The Interior nnd western
portions are left blank and the different
mouths of the Mississippi river arc shown as
separate streams flowing from different Im
aginary sources. California Is represented
as an Island nnd the Aleutian Islands are
shown to be the main coast of Alaska , An
other Interesting fact Is In the knowledge
shown IdO jears ago of the course of the
e , which was clearly traced to two lakes
jelow the equator. This bit of Information
t Is generally supposed was only acquired
within the Inst twenty years. There Is a
map of England under William IV. , and a
number of war maps of French and other
European cities. General Mnnderson also
ins on exhibit the plates of the German
[ conographlc encyclopedia In two large vol
umes. The original surfaces from which the
: ilateas were struck were brought to Aincr-
ca for duplication here but were lost In u
storm ait sea. Other valuable contributions
from General Manderson are a rare edition
of Burns , an txlltlon of John Qulncy Adams'
oration on LaFayette , printed for the per
sonal distribution of the author , a collec
tion of vignettes of the national presidents
and government designs.
William H. Wyman , a Shakespearean
scholar of national reputation , has contrib
uted a number of volumes from his library
which Is especially good In the line of his
favorite pursuit. The most rare and curious
volume loaned by him Is the Book of Hours ,
done In an exquisite fashion on vellum with
miniatures of wonderful coloring. There IB
a large extra Illustrated volume of Shakespeare
spearo rebound by Mr. Wyman with lllus
tratlons of private collection. Another
Shakespeare treasure Is Allots' English
Parnassus , published during the poet's life
and conta'ftlnc references to him and ex
tracts from his poems. An ancient bible
with no colophon or title page shows a fine
example of early printing. Its date Is sup
posed to be 1480. One of the celebrated
"Breeches" bibles Is In this collection , pub
lished In 1620. There Is also a bound vol
ume of tltlo pages and prints taken from
old books which were afteryard destroyed
and which came Into Mr. Wyman's posses
sion during a popular enthusiasm for col
lecting that sort of curiosity.
Some KcclcMliiHtlcnl TrcimureH.
The collection of ecclesiastical literature
offered by the Crclghton college and from
Iho private library of Bishop Scannell is
especially Interesting. There Is a Gaelic
blblo with a genealogical tree from Adam
to the Virgin Mary , a translation of the
new testament Into Japanese , and a rare
Latin blblo of Immense size bound In colld
oak and printed In Cologne In 1478. Other
rare volumes of n similar sort make up
a most creditable display.
A priceless contribution b y Mrs. Lucy
Savage is the original Shakespeare folios ,
four In number , with dates of 1C23 , 1632 and
later. The second folio , dated 1632 , Is now
almost Inaccessible. Mrs. Savage also has
on exhibition a rare edition of Hackbluyt's
Voyages.
In the space net apart for Richard Hall
are three notable volumes from the press
of Elzevir , 1630 , nnd are the best exnmplts
of the printing of tliRt famous workman ,
the detail work bolus done with the per
fection of present day preuscs. The Ser
mons of Mnyrom , Venice , 1491 , are executed
In Gothic typo , Illumined arabesque borders ,
with a curious and rare portrait of the
author In an illumined Initial letter. It Is
supposed to be ono ot the largo number
of volumes stolen by a famous state libra
rian from the Trench royal library and
hopelessly scattered over Europe. In con
trast to the ancient volumes In his exhibit
Mr , Hall has loaned one of the recent ac
complishments of the Kelmscott press , The
Water of the Wondrous Isles , by William
Morris , showing the triumph of the modern
printers' and book binders' art.
Mrs. W. W. Kejsor has on exhibit-ion a
first edition of the New England primer ,
a quaint and curious volume. An Inter
esting portion ot her collection also is
Friar Jerome's Book , a poem by Aldrlch ,
executed by band and In water colors by
a friend of Mrs. Keyaor. The manuscript
Is variously Illumined and bound tastefully
In bark. Mrs. Underwood displays a num
ber of books and relics of historical value
which have passed down In her family
from Nathan Underwood , connected with
Harvard college In 17SO.
There Is a good display of Illustrations
and literature peculiar to the Pacific coast
made by the Los Angeles public library.
The Boston Book Binding company has a
good exhibit of modern methods In the line
of Its work.
Around the library walls are hung "a col

lowed by the Omahans. The sacred edifice
was crowded to Its full capacity by the
congregation. The services began about 10

the pastor of the church , who also preached
the sermon. Ho was assisted by Father
Broz of Dodge , la. , and Father Adolph , n
Franciscan friar. Bishop Scannell was
present during the services. Father Vra-
nek's sermon was suitable to the occasion.
His remarks were devoted mainly to the
future policy of the Catholic union.
