IRDLY THE CHOIR INVISIBLE Director Kellj'i Organization Ablest from " Tint Metuodirt 8erTlces. COMMENTS ARE IN SHARPS AND FLATS Caavreaatlaa Coltili Itself? with Fpw standard Hymns aid taa Aavll C horns m Postlade. 'lth the exception of a few bymn tung by the conurbation, lea by Mr. Will Ste vcns, with E. H. Packard aa organist, the First Methodist church, usually so opulent in melody and aound, had no music yea terday morning. True to his word, MuBlcal Director Kelly and hla choir failed to ap pear and the big loft held only a large collection of empty chairs. Whether be cause of the light snow and gray sky or because of the absence of Mr. Kelly's choir was Impossible to tell, but the atteudance was somewhat less than usual. After the services groups of the more prominent men and women of the church stood for a long time conversing on a single topic the absence of the regular music service and tba dictum of Musical Director Kelly, that either the janitor or himself must go. Two general sentiments were expressed that Mr. Kelly and the choir must be retained, even though Janitor Innea be forced out, and that the director deserved a lot of censure for leaving the church without music. To an extent most of the congregation has taken sides, but only to a comparative degree, both holding the tenet that Kelly is too precious to lose, even though he Is a man of "moods." Expert HcnaeIllatlon. When asked If the absence of the vested choir had been seriously missed yesterday morning various members of the church replied: "No, I think we got along very nicely. Don't youT Still, It would be hardly the thing every Sunday. But t think the whole affair will be smoothed over and there will be no change." One of the women ealdi "I don't blame Mr. Kelly a bit. Supposing the board of trustees had become displeased with blm. Do you think they would have given him a hearing before relieving him? Well, I should say not. There Isn't any question but that the Janitor exceeded his author ity." Another member of the church, a man who Is otre of the leading supports, de clared: "Mr. Kelly must remain and the Janitor must go. It Is no more than right that be should be discharged. The ma jority of the board of trustees thinks so now, and there will be a meeting this week to decide the matter." The pastor, Rev. E. Combte Smith, was Inclined to view the whole affair rather humorously and said he felt sure that mat ters would be adjusted to the satisfaction of all concerned. Some few of the leading churchmen are decidedly sore, but one of them said: "This thing has happened be fore, and may happen again. I don't ap prehend very much from the present crisis." KImS OX SCOPE OP RELIGIOX. t , Says Salvation ia Given I'nder Grace, Not Thronah Compulsion. Rev. Luther M. Kuhns spoke on the "Scope of Religion" at Grace Lutheran church yesterday morning. Taking for his text the verse, "Through His name, who soever belleveth In Him ehall receive re mission of sins," Acts x, 43, he said that God had provided for universal salvation. "The purpose of all religion, that believes In Christ, Is the follqwlng out of this di vine decree of God which grant remission of tin through I)is namo," averred the speaker. "To every one the choice of ac cepting this decree la free. The Idea U that salvation la given under grace and not through compulsion. "God cornea to the heart as a potter to, the clay and If be finds It susceptible to the touch he moulds It and makes It over in the light of his own grace. If your heart or my heart contains a non-reslstlng nature when God comes In touch with It, He in stills In It a divine feeling. "God has made provision for the at tainment of sanctity through his name. To many the cross Is a symbol that Is being relegated to the past, but sanctity Is given through the CbrlBt end by the way of the cross. It is the secramental pledge of mercy. Through it the blood of Jesus Christ is sprinkled on the hearts of man kind and, as In the days when the children of Israel sprinkled blood on the doorposts that the destroying angel iilght pass them by,, so this blood of the Savior now causes sin to pass by the hearts it is sprinkled on as It is a pledge of grace-meaning mercy. "Men reach heaven on common ground through common means, through the way of Jesus Christ and the naerlflce of the Father. Through the sorrows and tribu lations of this world the heart Is cleansed. If grace were not effected In the hearts of mankind on earth there would be no saints In heaven garbed In white robes. When we realise that the blood of Jesus Christ washes away tho sins of man, then faith brings tho means of attaining sanctiBca tlon." EILOGIZKS BISHOP WOHTHIXC.TOX. Rev. Uartdsoa Talks of DlKaltarr'a Past Work. At St. Matthias church Rev. Philip Dav idson took for his subject "The Mother Church," from the gospel for Mid-Lent 8unday. In speaking of St. Matthias' church, he said: "Let me speak again of our beloved bishop who built this church. It stands here today as a witness of his unselfish ness, of his love, for the church of God, of bla devotion to the welfare of his dioceso and of his faith in God. Generations to come will be nourished by tbe bread of life from this altar, which he erected after the pattern of that altar upon which the spot jess tamb Is offered before the throne of Ood. His good works will bless the gen erations to come. Is It not a thought to arouse our affection and reverence, that this Inheritance of sacred beauty has been provided for us and our children by that man, through God's grace. "What Is to be the future of this church? I mesn of this parish of our Holy Catholic church. That depends to considerable ex tent upon oursolves. In after years our grand. unselOxh Bishop Worthlngton, who gave hla time and money toward the erect ing and maintaining of this church, will bav passed away. Those others who through his Influence contributed to the building, those who toiled In Its erection, those whose holy lips spake Ha eonseera- Not a Soap, but it Cleanses GORHAM Silver Polish The finest polish known Clcir s u well ai polishes All r..poMlble u , package tlon to God's service, will have passed away. The worshipers who first knelt at !fs s.!'tr le nrt in O"'" , wm I r -Ing the resurrection. Their children, and our children, will follow them In loving service here and so pans on to their re ward. Think of the holy association of this place that echoes with the praises and prayers of generations. It Is the meeting place of loved ones. Here soul leans upon soul and men are brethren from the high est to the lowest. Here sorrows are com forted. Here sins are pardoned. Here enemies are reconciled. Here children are taught the holy word of God. From this building light, life, hope, faith and Im mortality are poured forth upon a dark and sinning world." SHOILD KEEP IN THE I.OVE OF GOD. Iter. Hatch ftelterates that Favorite Teat from Jade. At Tlymouth Congregational church Sun day morning Rev. F. A. Harehi the pastor, preached, taking his text from the twentieth chapter of Jude: "Keep yourselves In the love of Ood." He said in part: "This writer, like Peter In his second epistle, cautioned the people against the preachers of false doctrines, but here he draws tbo contrast between the faithful and those who taught error. Tou can live on the miasmatic plains until you have acquired fevers, and can only be cured by going to the mountains. In the plains of life tho soul Is affected by evil, which can be thrown off only by recourse to the mount of Ood'a love. Our opinion of men will change. Those we trusted will be found unworthy and those In whom we have no confidence will prove themselves the noblest types. We can know no man until we can tell how he loves. Love ia the best groundwork for a knowledge of the world, and love Is the best ground work for a knowledge of God. If we have not known God's love we are Ignorant, In deed. God's love always brings a desire for self-communion; God'a love is the at mosphere of life. Tho atmosphere In which a child Is reared has much to do with his disposition, and how few of us have a continuous feeling of Ood'a presence and love? In the universe there Is law, but above and beyond the law Is the power of the love of Ood. Jesus prays that His disciples have a knowledge of the love of God. Self-seeking and deceptive Jacob was changed by the presence of Ood, and In the burning bush the presence of Ood made Moses a hero for all time. The critics have tried to prove that two persons wrote the book of Isaiah, but one part was written through ordinary inspiration of prophesy, while the other was written after Isaiah knew Ood and His love. "Ood asks from us the love of the peni tent, the love of the child and the love of the bride. The love of Ood Is the sure Joy of declining years, and the best refuge for the dismayed aoul. We cannot say we love God unless we. love humanity and are willing to show that love by our work for our fellows." WILLIAMS, SATS TO GIVE FREELY. Foreign Missions Secretary Pleads at Grace Baptist. Rev. Henry Williams of Des Moines, dis trict secretary for foreign missions, occu pied the pulpit of Grace Baptist church, i.t Tenth and Arbor streets, yesterday morn ing by special appointment. The Initial services were conducted by Rev. B. W. Fellman, the regular pastor of the church. Rev. Williams took for his-text: Exodus 13:31, "A pillar of cloud leads us." He said: "The successful churches are tho missionary churches. It was the Inspira tion they received from doing missionary work, especially foreign missionary work, that brought tbe grace of God to them. For did not Christ say to His disciples, 'Go ye Into all tbe world and preach the gospel to every creature?' He did not aay preach the 'law,' but preach the gospel. That is the pillar of cloud that leads us. If we believe tbe text as we read it we are thrilled with delight. It was with Infinite confidence that the Israelites followed the pillar of cloud that led them out of Egyp tian bondage. It God be for us, who can be against us? God is the same today that He was at the dawn of man's history. God Is today leading His people to work in foreign lands. How wonderful God leads. He always leads the right way. Never can we get a man to a sorrowing brother until we get man to a suffering Christ. The blood of the martyrs Is the seed of the church. We love only as we give. True love always sacrifices. It your church is poor and struggling, tbe greater Is your need to give to foreign evangelization. You will receive a reflex benefit from it. It Is God's way to show His works, that by sacrifice must you show your sincerity, and then Ood In His good time will re ward you the greater for the sacrifice. Such Is the history of struggling churches such as yours, and, though you now have a big work on your handa in building your new church, you should not neglect your foreign mission obligations. If you will trust Ood, God will trust you." SOCIALISTS' JAL QUORUM Party's State Central Committee Meets Today to Make Ip Its Membership.

MANUFACTURING IN THE WEST Industries Follow Where ths Star of Empire Leads. ABUNDANT RAW MATERIAL TO WORK ON t'neqaalled Ooportanltlea for Prosit able Investment of Capital, Rhlll ad Energy What Has Been Done. Bonds and Mortgages, a Chicago monthly, discusses In the March number the growth of manufacturing Industries In the middle west and presents Instructive statistics showing what has been done and what may be done with capital and skill Intelli gently directed. The abundance of raw material now shipped to other points dis tant from the source to be converted Into manufacturing products Justifies the as sertion that the west today affords un equalled opportunities for the upbuilding of profitable Industries. The paper, quoted editorially, says: While the west has been developing In population and bas been endeavoring to Inaugurate new methods of agriculture, that It mlgbt be more certain of Ita crop returns, It haa said little of its progress In the art of making things. The manu facturing Impulse that has accompanied the production of raw material has worked Its way ao quietly that It haa been ap parently one of the minor evidences of tbe progress in the western and northwestern states. Yet 4t Is doubtful If there la to day any one thing that Is of more Import ance In the west's development than this. The fact that It Is able to enter the manu facturing lists and to keep Its people em ployed at other things than the raising of crops Is of vast value to Its ultimate growth and the permanency of its business conditions. . Growth of the Manufacturing; Instinct. The reasons for tbe west's movement In this direction are found In the coming of men accustomed to this life.' The towns are filling up as well as the country and the men who are making their bomea therein are those with the manufacturing instinct. Then there Is an Investment fund In tho west that Is at the disposal of th business men who are capable of handling It and of utilizing the raw material that Is so abundant. It Is ridiculous that the ranch man of Dakota should send his hides to Massachusetts and then pay freight on them back again in the. form of shoes. - It has been so proved, for one of the most successful shoe factories In tbe nation is In Minnesota while others are being lo cated in other parts of the prairie region. The breakfast food industry has been cen tered In Michigan for several years; now it is also becoming prominent In Minneap olis, Omaha and Kansas City, where new factories are probable this year. The wheat and oats are grown at their door and can be utilized cheaply. . The northwest Is particularly Independ ent In this. The fuel suppiy of the states along the northern border la abundant, for tbe furnishing of vast power; the rivers of the atatea near the mountains are ready to give the power to many mills; the tim ber of the states farther west Is of such quantity and quality as to make the de velopment of the lumber Industry In all Its forms of most profitable Investment. Al ready these factors are being utilized and tbe people are making themselves the arbi ters of the new prosperity that bas come to their section. Money In Slant. There Is plenty of money for this de velopment. Not all of It la' In the west, but a large portion is there. The cer tainty of the large demand, all the time growing larger as 4he population advances by leapa and bounds through tbe constant Influx of settlers, gives assurance that there will be a market for the products and the people who Invest. In the new plants are tbe ones most familiar with the conditions. In every town of any size In the west some Industry Is taking root. It may be nothing more than a broom fac tory or a brickworks,, but it la aiding to sorno extent In the new movement that Is making tbe west rich and Is also making it a rival to the east's long time supremacy In such things. How many realize that there are In tbe western states, meaning those between tbe Mississippi and the Rockies. 225,287 manu factories with an aggregate capital of $3,447,587,249 and an annual product of 15,252.311,029? This Includes borne of the largest mills in the world, the packing houses that are the wonder of this age and other vast enterprises as well as many that are of lesser account. In famed New England, the borne of manufacturing, there are only one-fourth as many establishments aa In the west, with less than half the capital invested and an annual product of only two-fifths. Two decades ago the west had practically none of thla vast manu facturing Industry. What Haa Been Done. These are the states that have made tip this splendid record: Iowa. 14,189 establishments, $102,733,103 capital, $204,716,877 product. Missouri. 18,764 establishments, $249, 888,581 capital. $385,493,784 product. Minnesota, 11,112 establishments,. $86,827, 362 capital, $173,129,398 product. Nebraska, 6.114 establishments, $71,982,187 capital, $143,990,000 product. . South Dakota, 1,639 establishments, $7, 578,985 capital, $12,231,239 product. Colorado, 3,570 establishments, $62,822,473 capital. $102,830,137 product. North Dakota, 1,130 establishments, $5, 396.490' capital, $9,138,114 product Magnificent as these figures are, they are yet more Interesting when It Is remembered that they show an Increase over the reports of a decade ago of 50 to 200 per cent, and the population has Increased In no such large ratio. In other words, the people have learned to make things and are doing so to a larger extent than ever in their history. It means that they will prove more independent of the conditions else where. Markets la the Orient. Of course, this growing tendency brings Into tbe west some new elements, such as the complications of the labor movement and the proper marketing of products. The former is not yet great except In the rail way circles and the latter will take care of Itself so long aa the aettlement Is Increas ing by hundreds of thousanda each year. The opening of the Pacific coast to new markets through the Orient la as yet more In promise than in performance, but the future will doubtless be fraught with greater meaning and a larger scope for the business growth and the Industrial devel opment. The farmers and ranchmen will get higher prices aa the cost of transpor tation Is decreased and the worth of the lands will Increase because of the proxim ity of tbe farmer to a market. Ths manu facturing west is not a dream; It la with ta and. in the language of the country news paper. Is "here to stay."

A member of the Real Estate exchange's tax committee, who wss a prime mover last year when the County Board of Equal ization was In session, now expresses him self as favorable to a low county ssscs ment for 1903 and a consequently high levy as a means of squaring accounts with tbe railroads as . nearly as possible. "The only obstacle to this," he said, "Is that If the assessment la made low the board may be forced to go over the 15-mlll levy to raise money enough, and thereby transgress the fifth section of Article Ix of the constitution, which specifically says that county authorities never shall assess taxes the aggregate of which shall exceed $1.60 per $100 valuation, unless authorized by a vote of the people of the county. They are Ignoring this stipulation in many counties, but some time someone will start a general fight on taxes, comprehended by a greater levy than this, and then there will be trouble." COUNTY LOSES THE QUARTERS Clerk Drexel Thinks Mate Should Pay for I Be of Real on Manilas Licenses. County Clerk Drexel is of the opinion that the state Is getting the better of the county In the matter of revenue derived from tho sale of hunting licenses. A license to a resident sells for $1 and to a nonresident for $10. Last year more than 800 licenses were Issued by the clerk of Douglas county, yet the county received no part of the money, though it was neces sary for, the clerk's staff to Issue triplicate receipts In each instance and stamp tbe license with the clerk's seal. Clerk Drexrl says there Is a provision of law that 25 centa must be charged for every paper on which tbe seal Is used, and he Is wondering why the state should not be obliged to pay as others do. Had 25 cents been deducted from the county's remittance to the stata for every hunjLlng license issued last year the county would have been gainer by $200. A Convincing Answer, Sickness la discouraging, and it Is not surprising that persons who have been more or less ailing with rheumatism for several years, and who have failed to find anything that would give permanent relief, hesitate about trying a new remedy, how ever highly it may be recommended. Then is one argument, however, that often car ries conviction -with It, viz: "If Chamber lain's Pain Balm does not cure, you need not pay for It." That is what Mr. E. P. Origsby of Grigsby, Va., said to Mr. Trip lett, one of bis customers who was troubled with rheumatism in tbe small of his back. The next weelt Mr. Trlplett was In and said If he could not get another he would not take $5.00 for that bottle of Chamber lain's Pain Balm. The quick relief from pain which this liniment affords Is alone worth many times its cost. Announcements of the Theaters.

GILLESPIE CHARGES FRAUD 1 Madron. County Resident is f irbting Bait "BL0NDIE" CLARK MAY BE INVOLVED Attorney for Defendant Is Try Ins; to Hare F.x-f aaatahle Arrested on Charge of Impersonating an Officer. Attorney Duffle of Madison. Neb., has promised to secure within the next thirty days evidence to prove that fraud has been perpetrated, or Is to be perpetrated, upon residents of Madison county, and Attorney Alexander Altschuler of Omaha has prom ised to secure In the same time evidence to prove that the specific case cited by Attorney Duffle Is without foundation an 1 that Duffle's client is merely seeking lo avoid payment of a Just debt. The promises were made In Justice rot ter's court at Dundee,, Saturday, when Alt schuler asked and secured a thirty days' continuance of the hearing In the suit of J. W. Dorsey to collect on a $125 note held against James Gillespie of Madison county. He made tho request when Olllesple filed an affidavit that the note was a fraud. If Attorney Duffle can prove to the court the truth of all be haa alleged he may Cre ate something of a sensation. It Is bis story that some time ago a Dr. Sullivan visited Madison county, Introduced him self as an eminent physician representing an extensive medical firm, and persuaded some men afflicted with money and other ailments to enter Into contracts for treat ment. The bottom of the contracts. At torney Duffle avers, were worded as prom issory notes for $100 or more, and these notes were detached and placed In the hands of supposedly Innocent purchasers, who were to collect them, the contracts being allowed to go by the board. Involves "Blondle" Clark. - Fearing to attempt collection In Madison county, Attorney Duffle ventures to de clare, a conspiracy was entered into in the case of Gillespie's note to make it pos sible to bring the suit in Douglas county. The namo of R. J. Thompson of Benson was placed on the Gillespie note as that of an endorser and Thompson made a de fendant. As suit may be brought against either of two defendants and the other de fendant forced to appear where the hearing Is, tbe result of this was to oblige Glllre ple to come to 'Douglas county to defend. In substantiation of his allegation that this was a conspiracy, Attorney Duffle de clares that there Is no R. J. Thompson and that the name was a fictitious one chosen for the purpose of the suit. In this connection he brings "Biondie" Clark Into the suit because Clark made a return of having secured service of sum mons on R. J. Thompson at Benson. DufTe says he has an affidavit from County Clerk Drexel to prove that Clark's term of office as constable expired the 81 h of last Janu ary, or some time prior to the date he swore he served the summons. The Co lumbus attorney has been to County At torney English and asked tn latter to look Into the matter with a view m prose cuting Clark for impersonating an officer. The prosecutor has done nothing In the matter as yet, but feels some Interest in the case in a general way because he haa heard rumors of similar procedures In Adams county and elsewhere over the state. 'The hearing Saturday in Justice Potter's court, to which the case went on Duffle's motion for a change of venue from Justice Kubat's, did - not advance far before the continuance was asked, but there was on file the deposition of Gillespie's wife In which ehe stated she had algned "a sheet of paper longer than a note." Olllesple denied ever having signed such a contract with a knowledge of Its contents. Neither Dorsey, the plaintiff nor R. J. Thompson, the endorser, who haa been made a de fendant, was In court, but Attorney Alt- schuler said both were among the living Inhabitants of tbe earth and that If nec essary they would be present at the hear ing thirty days hence.
