"Our anti-trust legislation In absurd, from
the (act that It Is based upon th Idea cf
turning things backward," said Rev. H. C.
Herring In the course of his sermon at the
First Congregational church yesterday
morning; and those words, although by
Bo means constituting a complete Index
to his discourse, may fairly be said to be
Indicative of its tenor. Lr. Herring took
(or his text Micah. vl:8 and said that the
words of the prophet might be construed
s Indicating how easy It Is and yet how
difficult to be a gocd man. This suggestion
the preacher applied particularly to In
dustrial work. The Industrial world he
Spoke of as the great world of today, and
Steadily coming to transcend In Impor
tance those three great forces of society,
the borne, the state and the church. There
fore It was of the greatest Importance
that men should deal Justly with one an
other. The tendency of society toward con
centration In all branches he discussed
rather from an economic than a theological
standpoint, arguing that the present or
ganization of capital on the one hand and
labor on the other was a natural evolution
and tbo result of conditions a step away
from individualism toward mutualism and
that It would be a great mistake to at
tempt to stay the progress of that evolu
tion in an effort to disintegrate the two
(treat forces and return to the Individual
ism of the past. The tendency of society,
he believed to be toward unification as a
till further evolution of the present con
dition of duality of interests.
POWER KKEDKU II V THE (HtlKII.
Fire of True Christianity Says Her,
D. K. Tlndall.
In his sermon of last evening Rev. D. K.
Tlndall of Trinity Methodist Episcopal
church preached from Acts 1, 8, the text
being: "Ye shall receive power; after
that the Holy Ghost Is come upon you."
Bo said: "The greatest need of the church
Is not numbers. Half the world's Inhab
itants are nominally Christians, and more
than one-fourth are members of the Chris
tian church. It can no longer be said,
Tear not, little flock.' It is quality more
than quantity that is required to capture
the world for Christ. Gideon, with 300
men and the sword of the Lord, was more
than a match for the hosts of Mldianltes.
Abraham, with 318 picked men, was too
much for all the kings of the valley of
Sodom. It Is not the power of social In
fluence. The real aristocrats and the elite
cf tha world arc. Christians. It Is no longer
a disgrace to be called a Christian. Chris
tian nations are at the front; not heathen
China or Infidel Turkey, but Christian Eng
land and America lead the world today.
Most of the great rulers and statesmen
of the world are church members or be
lievers in the Christian religion. There
are few Pllates, Herods or Caesars todsy
with which Christ has to contend. It is not
the power of wealth. The wealth of the
world is chiefly in the hands of, or is con
trolled by Christians. China Is poor, Tur
key la virtually bankrupt, and those na
tions which are only nominally Christians,
or which have not the power of vital Chris
tianity, ss Italy, Greece and Spain, are
having a financial struggle to exist, while
Christian America and England and other
thoroughly Christian nations abound in
wealth. Vanderbllts, Goulds, Rockefellers,
Studebakers and other multi-millionaires
krs numerous In the Christian church of to
day. Nor is It political power. The
branches of the Christian church which
have dabbled most in partisan politics
have been of late making the least prog
ress. Christianity In politics is quite nec
essary, but the less of partisan politics In
Christianity the better. It Is not the power
of learning. The Christian church has al
ways stood for colleges, scholarship and
culture, as witness the church fathers snd
Paul, Luke, Luther, Wesley, Calvin and
thousands of other bright lights in church
history. Its colleges are numbered by the
hundreds, and its pulpits and pews sbound
In learning. It is not the power of ora
tory, for I doubt not that the church has
been cursed with much of the atudled and
formal oratory of the schools. What cared
a Wesley or Moody or Myer for oratory?
"The power the church needs Is that of
the Holy Spirit; this hsa always been its
power. A cannon may be great and
perfect, and the powder and ball properly
and carefully placed, but without a spark
of fire, all is powerless to do execution;
hut once a spark of fire touches the powder,
Instantly that powder Is a flash of light
ning and that ball a thunderbolt, in whose
path are destruction and death. The
church may be large and perfectly organ
lsed and equipped, but without Holy Ghost
firs It la powerless to destroy the wicked
ness of tbs world; but on fire with the
Holy Ohost, the powers of darkness can
not long withstand Its blazing and tri
umphant march. One hundred and twenty
spirit-filled Christians on the day of Pen
tecost won 3,000 stubborn souls to Christ.
The early church, with this same power.
conquered the Roman empire in less than
three centuries. Let us wait In prayer
for this power; expect it, receive It, and
take the world for Christ."
Appeal for Their Support Made hy
At Bt. Mary's Avenue Congregational
church Sunday Rev. Robert Yost delivered
a strong and telling appeal for foreign
missions and at the conclusion of his ser
mon an unusual shower of coins rained Into
the contribution boxes. In all the church

much remained to be dnos. Referring then
to the immense preponderance of souls
In the world thst bsve never known Christ
the pastor said:
"One thought burns Into my brsln. I
tuke out my watch and gaze at the second
hand while It makes Just one revolution,
covering the sixty seconds, one minute. In
that time thirty Uvea have passed out of
the world. By some strsnge power I am

"You happy people sit In God's house
and feast at bis board. Remember the
many millions who would be glad to get
the mere crumbs from that table. You have
been taught to go to Ood in trouble; they
can but look Into deeper darkness."
KCRKT OP TRIE GREATNESS,
Rev. C. C. CI. .ell Preaches I'poa that
"God's greatest problem Is man; His
greatest work Is In the interest of man; His
revelations are In behalf of man; and though
man Is the supreme apex of what Ood has
made, man is the only one of God's crea
tions that has caused Him trouble."
So said Rev. C. C. Clssell at tha Hanscom
Park Methodist church Sunday morning. Dr.
Ciesell told of the creation of the world for
man and of the creation of things on it for
him, snd of God's way for the ultimate sal
vation of man.
He told the story of how Moses led the
children out of the wilderness, of how God
had caused the child to be saved when the
order had been Issued to put to death the
Hebrew children; of how the child bad been
educated In the household of the king and
had later saved his people. He told of the
time when the church was full of hypocrisy
and when people lived by the will of the
pope; of how Martin Luther kindled the Are
of revelation, and of other Incidents of the
awakening of man by God.
'Man's secret of greatness is Independ
ence," said Rev. Clssell. "Tell him be is
ot independent snd he becomes angry. But
greatness is not independence; there is no
such thing as independence in this world or
the celestial world. The grass of the
elds is dependent on the earth for life, the
oxen on the grass and man Is strengthened
by the ox, and everything has some Influ
ence over something else. Communion and
fellowship with God Is greatness. The high
est honor to man Is to talk with God."
We can communicate with Ood today. We
can talk to Him face to face if we follow His
teachings. God bas done all for us and we
should do something for Him. We can only
get greatness in serving God.
Severe Attack of Diarrhoea Quickly

AUTUMNAL EQUINOX IS HERE
Scientists Bar It Accoants for Rain.
bat They Promise Immediate
Omaha people who are waiting In sus
pense to see that old Sol does not upsot
things terrestrial today as bs makes bit
autumnal trip through the equator and
thus bring bavoe to the Ak-Bar-Ben festiv
ities, which are to be rendered specially
notable this year by the visit of the pres
ident, will be glad to learn that men who
can speak scientifically upon the subject
predict fair and pleasant weather immedi
ately following the present cloudy spell.
Weather Forecaster , Welsh is one who
takes this cheerful view.
The present disturbance In the elements
Mr. Welsh and others attribute to the au
tumnal equinox naturally, but the former
believes that bright weather is In store
and will prevail during the festival week.
The fact that the low barometer, which
has caused the rainy, cloudy spell of the
last day or two, is attended by no vio
lence is taken as especially encouraging.
The only serious question is as. to the
durstlon of this ugly period. But no re
markable equinoctial disturbances being
on 'the docket, weather prophets say there
is no special cause for alarm over the fear
ot spontaneous phenomena.
Today the night and day cut up the time
evenly between them for the first time
since March II, when the vernal equinox
rolled around and effected amicable rela
tions between them. Old Sol takes advan
tage of the occasion of sweet harmony and
equity and formally ushers into existence
the fall or autumn season. Astronomers,
sptsklng of the equal division which the
equinoxes make between day and night,
volunteer the Information that this spirit
of equality la limited. For this reason no
one must run away with the Idea that
while day and night are equal all over the
world this condition of affairs divides the
year into portions of equal length at all.
Tbe Interval from the vernal to the au
tumnal equinox Is greater than from the
autumnal to the vernal. Or to put It dif
ferently, the sun continues longer on the
northern side than on tbe southern side of
tbe equator, because It Is mora dlstsnt
from ths earth In our summer than In the
winter, and Its angular motion In its orbit
Is consequently slower between Msrch and
September than between September and
March, or In simple vernacular, the earth
moves faster in winter than In summer.

GO TO CIVIC LEAGUE MEETING
lodge and Mrs. Slabauah to Attend
Convention In Minneapolis
When Judge and Mrs. Slabnugh go to
Minneapolis this week to attend the meet
ing of the National Civic league, they will
carry with them statements from the offi
cial and unofficial bodies, which have made
and are contemplating Improvements ln
Omaha which tend to make the city beau
tiful. The National Civic league Is rather
aesthetic than political In Its nature and
more time Is given to the consideration of
parks and boulevards and ths planting ot
trees and shrubbery than to those ques
tions which are more prominently before
the economists who devote time to the
consideration of municipal affairs of Amer
ica. Judge Slabaugh has, upon the request of
the officers of the league, prepared to se
cure from the park board, the county
commissioners, the mayor of the city, the
Improvement clubs, the Real Estate ex
change and other organizations, statements
of what they have done and hope to do In
the way of Improving the city from an
Omaha has some laws on the subject
which are worthy of adoption by cltiea of
larger size. These laws will be laid before
tbe league by Judge Slabaugh and he will
endeavor to secure suggestions from other
cities, which he will recommend for adop
tion by Omaha people.
One phase of the league's work Is the
offering of premiums ln the different cities
for the most artistic arrangement of lawns
and flower gardens, for the parking of
streets and the planting of ornamental
trees. This has been done to a greater
extent ln the east, although prizes have
been awarded in Kansas City aud a few
other cities of the west. Omaha has had
no active representative of the league to
push the work ln this city, but It Is ex
pected that active work will be Btarted
before next spring, so that some effect of
the agitation may be seen In Improved
lawns and flower gardens next summer.
At the Crelghton-Orphenm.
Old friends greeted each other at the
Crelghton-Orpheum last night and congrat
ulated themselves and Manager Relter on
the successful opening of another vaude
ville season. Other old friends didn't waste
any time on preliminaries, but hurried to
tbe seats, and still others climbed the gal
lery stairs and packed that place of "heav
enly" rest full of eager, anxious humanity,
ready to burst Into a chorus of whistles and
catcalls at every opportunity, and several
times rather Inopportunely. Every seat ln
the house was sold, the orchestra was
crowded into halt Its space and aisles and
lobby were crowded by the patrons of va
riety, who held gladsome reunion last night.
The bill for the opening week is a well ar
ranged affair, calculated to please all sorts
of patrons. It opens with a "hurrah" song
and dance act and closes with an exhibition
of rifle shooting, with singing Instrumental
music, comedy and buffonery stretched be-
itii lii qu&iititic to suit. Fisher and
Clark to a song and dance turn in which the
bulk of the singing and dancing falls to the
lot of the feminine portion, while tho male
end of the pair contributes a remarkable ex
hibition of gymnastics. Ths Meredith sis
ters sing well and dance fairly. Smith and
Fuller play well on some novel Instruments,
and Miss Fuller sings excellently, accom
panying herself on the harp, on which she Is
an accomplished. -performer. Hal Godfrey
and his company present a funny one-act
kit which Is wfll acted and well received.
Barry and Halvln furnish a lot of eccentric
fun, and Harry Thomas, "The Mayor of the
Bowery," contributes a monologue with
many new things in it. Lorls and Altlna
contribute the sensational feature of the
bill, using rifles In a way that seems reck
less to the observer, yet producing only the
marvellous results that marksmen intend.
Mr. Albln Huster played a violin solo, which
was very well received.
"A Jolly American Tramp" received the
uproarious approbation of two large audi
ences at the Boyd yesterday afternoon. The
piece is a cross between a melodrama and
a farce-comedy. Just enough of a plot ex
isting to hold the thing together, and
enough specialties being introduced almost
to constitute a vaudeville bill. Competent
people have the several parts In charge and
they managed to amuse the crowds at both
matinee and evening performances Sunday.
Still Keeps It t'p.
"During a period of poor health some time
ago I got a trial bottle ot DeWitt's Little
Early Risers," says Justice of tho Peace
Adam Shook of New Lisbon, Ind. "I took
them and they did me so much good I
have used tbeio ever since." Safe, reliable
and gentle, DeWitt's Little Early Risers
neither gripe nor distress, but stimulate tbe
liver and promote regular and easy action
of tbe bowels.

"This strike Is getting pretty close to
home," said a Union Pacific subordinate
official Saturday evening as he came out
of the headquarters building. "It's a
blamed serious thing, snd for my part I
wouldn't care how soon It was settled.
At any rate, I hope tbe thing will wind up
There Is much more significance to the
gentleman's remarks than la apparent upon
the surface. The effect of tbe strike bas
extended to the headquarters building and
therefore Is Indeed "getting pretty close
to home." Tbe new channel through which
the strike has projected presents
a serio-comic aspect. The boilers in the
engine room from which the headquarters
building is heated required repairing; new
flues had to be put In and It was necessary
to get real boiler makers to do the work.
Heretofore It has been the custom of the
company to send down to the local shops
end get one of tbe boiler makers there
to make what repairs were necessary on
the headquarters boilers, but this year this
custom was not observed for some rea
son. It was planned to have the
work done by outside help, but
when one of President Burt's subordinates
went to a contract shop to hire a boiler
maker, ho found himself, in the terms of
street parlance, "up against It."
Contract Shops Refuse.
Every contract shop and every quarter
where boiler makers were to "be found was
visited, but it is said that up to Saturday
night no boiler maker had been engaged
for the work. They all refuse to do the
Job so long as the strike lasted, on tbe
grounds that to do It would be Indirectly
opposing the strikers, their brothers ln the
unions, and aiding the company in its fight
against the strikers.
Strikers naturally claim that tbe com
pany doea not go to the shops after boiler
makers to do this work, for the obvious
reason that it has no man there to whom
It cares to commit this work.
The importation yesterday of forty-five
men from the east brings the total number
of strike breakers Imported by the Union
Pacific since the beginning of the present
difficulty up to 1,763, according to a re
port said to be reliable. This of course
includes the number of men who have been
taken through Omaha to other strike cen
ters and not merely those who have been
placed in the shops here.
Only a moderate proportion of this num
ber Is said to be now at work ln the vari
ous shops. As the company refuses to
give out the exact figures as to the quota
of men ln its shops it is not possible to
obtain this Information precisely. From the
first, however, the tide of nonunion men
has ebbed and flowed, so that migration
from the shops has been ln progress as well
ss to them, not on as large a scale, of
course, though in tbe long run the defec
tions have been heavy.
Forty-Five New Men.
The forty-five men said to have been
shipped Into the local shops yesterday came
from Boston, New York and some from Du
luth. Tbey came In over the Illinois Cen
tral road. Strikers were Informed that but
few skilled mechanics were among them.
The company Is said to have had a plan to
send a good many of the older strike
breakers from the Omaha shops to Arm
strong, Kan., upon the arrival of the new
recruits yesterday. Strikers were figuring
on meeting some of this number as they
came out last evening and trying to per
suade them to desert the company. The
pickets were on the watch for the exodus
A company official made the statement
Saturday that not a picket could be seen
anywhere near the shops; that "you could
not find one with a fine comb." But In
vestigations yesterday certainly proved the
contrary. If any difference, there aro
more strikers on the lines now than at
any time since the strike began. They
are scattered over a larger area than be
fore. President Burt mado a visit to the
picket lines one day last week after tho
Issuance of the Baldwin Injunction and
found a number of strikers "present." He
pointed out a squad to one of the police
officers who was patrolling his beat, say
ing: "There are some pickets." Imme
diately the men were requested to "move
on," which they did, but soon returned.
It Is the purpose ot the strikers, as has
been stated, to maintain their picket line
with more diligence than ever unless pre
vented by the Injunction, which contingency
they do not think will come about.
Two Coming Events.
Two Important events now consuming
much of tbe strikers' attention are the
hearing of the Injunction September 25 and
the antl-lnjunctlon mass meeting tonight
In Washington hall, to which attention has
already been drawn. The men hope to de
feat the provisions of the injunction,
which they consider too mandatory and
sweeping, and expect to derive good from
the exposition of their fight with the com
pany at tonight's meeting.
