At Unity church Sunday morning the
pastor, Rev. N. M. Mann, preached from
tbe text, "Tbe true light which llghteth
every man that cometh Into tbe world,'
John 1. 9.
"This text seems to teach that the hu
man being, whoever he may be, whenever
and wherever he was born, has an Innate
Intuitive power of moral discrimination
that from the first ths race hss had a con
science," said he. "Such a notion, at least,
fcaa been verv wldelv received. We sre
accustomed to assume that every person
without Instruction, knows in a general
way wbat la right. And. confining the sd
olicatlon to clvlllied communities, as most
of ua who speak from observstlon must
necessarily do. It seems to be true In gen
eral tbat man has by nature and Inheritance
a certain light within him, a certain aense
of moral obligation. A recognition of thli
tact determlnea the peculiar province of
preaching In the civilised world. Preach
ing la sharply distinguished from lecturing
or other form of publlo Instruction, In this.
that the typical preacher does not teach
ha exhorts. The moral principled for which
Be stand are assumed to ba self-evident:
he has no need to defend or erpound them.
Hla builnei. In short, Is to bring men up
to tha observance of precepts which are
alrsady sufficiently understood. This Is one
of the reasons why preaching la proverbially
so dull and dismal. To be reminded of
duties Is almost alwaya disagreeable. To
have them urged with endless iteration is
an experience which stir no other than
a more or leas painful Interest. If ths
nrlnclDles of morals were something to be
acquired by study, like the principles of
geology or of arithmetic; It they were
something to be discussed and aettled. like
tne doctrines of pathology, or of political
economy, there would be afforded a mental
pleasures in in pursuit which Is now
wanting. Simply because the preacher, as
a preacher, has nothing new to tell, and
osn only remind the people of their short
comings, and urge them to act un to tha
light within them, hla effort baa become
tbe symbol of all tbat la most wearisome
and soporific In human speech.
"I make thla reflection at the expense of
tne preacher's calling only to Indicate how
decidedly the ground Is taken that on auea
tlons of morale there Is ordinarily no room
for two opinions. It is held aa a matter
of course that in respect of plain mstters
or duty everyone knows Intuitively what Is
right. How fsr, and In what sense this
view la correct, are questions of very great
practical and theoretical interest. Is It
true tbat the moral aense is a universal
human characteristic T With what authority
doea it speak T Are Its dictates on a given
question of conduct everywhere coincident?
When we have considered these points ws
may be better prepared tor the further
question concerning tbe origin and nature
of conscience.
"To one accustomed to regard the con
science as an Inborn, universal .faculty,
making everywhere and at all tlmea the
aame response touching the duties of life,
it gives no slight shock to find that this
Is after all an error. ' Choose wbat com
pend of duty you pleass, the ten command
ments or any other, and It Is quite pos
sible to name some race of human beings
to disallow In turn each one of your rules.
In some quarters tha relations of the eexes
afford not even a hint of the restrictions
Imposed by our society, and any restrictions
that do exist may be such aa we do not
at all observe.

world over Is born with tbe same con
science, or the came elements of conscience,
la not tenable. There is no one light which

ternoon Meeting.
Rev. Charlea W. Savidge held religious
services Sunday afternoon In the rooms of
tbe Six Day Plt&3ur club over Levy's
place at Eleventh street avid Capitol ave
nue. The room was filled, though very few
were pressnt from ths under world. Ths
services consisted of a short talk by Rev.
Savidge, testimony from those present and
songs and prayers. Rev. Savidge took for
hla aubject "Riding tha Black Horse."
Likening tbe "black horse" to sin, he spoks
briefly of the sin of dancing, gambling,
profanity and drinking V was listened
to attentively. At tbe conclusion of bis
talk he thanked the proprietor of the place
for allowing him tha use of the roots and
thanked Ood for putting Into the man a
heart large enough to want to give right
eousness an equal fight with sin.
Rev. Savidge atated that more preach
ers ware needed east of Fifteenth street
to carry on the work of Ood. "If we bad
100 preachers scattered through here," he
aald, "we would give the devil a hard tus
sle. We want to show to psople that God
la tha real thing; that He glvea us longer
lite, gives ua more pleasure In life, and
that the pleasure derived from sin Is not
pleasure. There la a lake ef fire for those
who sin and a Ufa of eternal peace and
happiness for those who follow tbe teach
ings of the Lord. I believe It because the
Bible teaches It. Though do not despair
If you have gone to tha depths of sin; He
can save you If you will only ask Him."
Tuesday night Rev. Savidge expects to
make a tour of tbe aaloona of the town,
with tbe permission of the proprietors.

WASHINGTON. May 4. 1 F. Hallock
of Boston. Mass., formerly a sergeant and
before a private In Company E, Twenty
sixth volunteer Infantry, testified be
fore the senate committee on the Tblllp
pines concerning the practice ot tbe water
cure In the Philippine archipelago.
Mr. Hallock told of the Infliction ot the
water cure upon a dozen native at the town
of Leon, province of Pansy. He said they
were cantured and tortured In, order to
secure Information of the murder of Prlvsta
O'Herne of Compaay I. who bad been not
only roaated, but otberwlso tortured be
fore death eniued.
Captain Glenn, In charge of a scouting
party, bad first secured a confession of
participation in this crime by one native
wbo had Implicated twelve others. These
were, the witness said, taken to Leon
where hla company, under command of
Captain Gregg, waa atatloned, sjd there
on the 21st and again on the 23d of August,
iv w, the cure waa administered.

"Who administered the cure?"
"Members of Company I."
"Were thev ordered to do soT"
"They were; by First Sergeant Jalurnua
Manning, who Is now In Boston."
Hallock added that ba had vltnaai ttia
torture, but bad not participated In tt, and
tbat while It was In progress Captain Gregg
was at company headquarters, less than
loo yards distant..
"Did the captain know of the torture?"
senator Rawlins asked.

In reply to a question from Mr. Burrowa,
Mr. Hallock said he bad seen the bodies
of four of the native prisoners who had
been shot by tbs soldiers while trying to
make their escspe, but tbat he bad not
seen the actual shooting. Hs also aald
that ha had seen the bones of O'Herne

of determining thst they were his, beyond
the confession of the natives, waa a pe

wss recognized as O'Herne's. The com

The committee decided not to request ths
appearance of Major Gardener pending the

The War department today received a

Soata Omaha to Be lees of Opera
tions with Johnnie Richie
as Star.
After ly!nrdormant for two months the
boxing game is to be revive! locally once
more. Tbe summer spasm of lsst year,
wben there were matches at regular In
tervals of about a month throughout the
silly season, Is apparently to be duplicated
and It Is now likely that the scene of most
of the sport will be where It was then, ia
South Omaha.
The same organization of men wbo con
ducted tbe mills in Koutsky's ball In
South Omaha last fall and winter have se
cured Blum's ball, known as the Red Light
theater, this year, t and expect to give
some good matches there. The place baa
alwaye given good satisfaction aa a loca
tion tor fights. Its situation in the center
of South Omsha and on a ear line.
A feature In connection with thla revival
will be the action of Johnnie Richie in re
entering tbe ring. Since hla victory over
Oscar Gardner last summer Johnnie has
steadfastly abjured tbe aquared circle,
though be haa been Importuned by his
friends and by challenges many tlmea to
take up tbe game again. He has now de
elded to go back to it and will be one of
tbe principals In the main event of tbe
first card to be pulled off at Blum's thla
The date set tor this affair Is May 16.
Richie's opponent Is not yet definitely de

fall to connect, Richie baa Sam Summerfield

There will be many preliminaries, Includ

In EUcht and a Half
LOUISVILLE. May 4.-After eight and
a half rounds of terrific fighting Marvin
Hart of Louisville knocked out "Kid" Car
ter of Brooklyn before the Southern Ath
letic club last night. It waa a slugging
match up to the alxth round, but the pace
had been so swift that during the last four
rounds both men were staggering around
the ring, hardly able to stand and neither
seemed able to land an effective blow. It
was merely a contest of endurance and the
knockout blow, a left to the Jaw, waa de
livered when Hart himself seemed almost
ready to fall.
Both men were severely punished. Car
ter's right eye was closed, his Up was
cut and his face wa bloody, while Hart's
right eye was badly swollen and the blood
was flowing freely from hla nose and
mouth when the bout ended. Until the
decisive blow was struck it seemed either
man's fight, though Hart appeared to bo a
little faster and stronger than his op
ponent. Though both boys were so severely pun
ished, neither was down until the ninth
round. This round opened with both stag
gering around the ring for a few sec
onds, until Hart landed on Carter's Jaw
and pushed him to the floor. He arose,
however, but Hart landed on him again
and he wont down and was unable to arise
until after Referee Tim Hurst had counted

At a meeting at the Millard Saturday
night of the amateur horsemen of Omaha,
South Omaha and Council Bluffs a per
manent organisation was effected, officers
elected and a constitution incorporated.
The committee on constitution reported
two model constitutions, one the constitu
tion of the Cleveland (O.) Amateur club
and the other the one used by the Omaha
Amateur club nine years ago. The two
were considered Jointly.
The name given the association waa the
Trl-Clty Amateur Driving club, and its
put pose "to maintain meetings, matinees
and contests of speed for the Improvement
of harness horses used for road or driving
purposes and to provide outdoor exercise,
pleasure and entertainment for the ownere
of such horses."
The membership fee was placed at $5,
which entitles al! holders to a season ticket
and all attending privileges. The dues are
to be derided at a later meeting.
The affairs of the club will be under the
control of a board of directors, who shall
have charge of all races and have the
power of appointing committees to classify
the horses. Judge the races, etc. The board
of directors will also have the power to
provide for special races, exhibitions, con
tests for speed, etc.
A lengthy discussion ensued on the ques
tion of the driver. Mr. Crofoot, the tem
porary chairman, had corresponded with
the leading membera of ths amateur cluts
of Denver, Cleveland. Detroit, Dubugue
and Kansas City. The custom prevailing
In those cities was not to compel the own
ers to drive, but to urge them to do so.
The Tri-Clty club adopted the aame rule.
The regular events were limited to horses
used only as road drlvfers. All racea ahall
be half-mile heata, the board of directors
having the power to make them dashes or
two in three races. Ths races will be
under the rules of the American Trotting
association when ths same do not conflict
with the rules of the local association.
A lengthy discussion came up over
vehicles. A number desired that the horses
be compelled to pull the average 260-pound
two-man road wagon. The practical horse,
men declared thst In the two In three beat
races such a road wagon would be two
heavy for horsea to pull at fast speed. Not
wishing the members to go V the expense
of buying light racing wagons it waa de
cided after two votes that the regular
events should be to carts and provide ape
rial events for wagons. Hobbled horsea
were barred from regular events.
After the discussion of constitution and
by-laws the following were elected as a
board of directors: L. F. Crofoot, T. C
Byrne. A. N. Wymsn of Council Bluffs, c'
C. Kendall. H. E. Tagg of South Omaha.

There s Nothing So
Bad for a Cough
as Coughing
The poorest doctor in
town will tell vou that. The
best one will tell you he prescribes
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral for all
throat and lung troubles. We send
doctors the formula for this medi
cine. They know it's a splendid
prescription for colds, bronchitis,
hoarseness, and even for con
sumption itself.
X coeahed terribly after baying a hard attack of la
ppa. If It had not been for Avert Cherry Pectoral, I
not believe I could possibly have palled throagh."
