Ter!slon a to Tbls Was Ileached
Wednesday In Conference Be
tween Mrs, Gallagher, Pick
ens, Paiton, Kimball.
It has been decided to Increase materially
the scope of the Improvements to the ware
houses of Paxton ft Gallagher by tearing
down the four-story brick building iidjoln
Ing the six-story building on th east,
which was recently damaged by collapso,
and erect a modern eight-story brick ware
house 99x132 feet on the Rite instead of
only a building 6tixl32, as originally contem
plated. The new building will cost about
1136,000 and will be finished by next No
vember, as plans are now being prepared
by the newly selected achltect, Thomas R.
The decision to tear down the four-story
building adjoining the damaged building
was made Wednesday afternoon at a con
ference between W. A. Taxton, Mrs. Galla
gher, Manager Pickens and Architect Kim
ball. When the six-story building at Ninth and
Jones streets collapsed last week, causing
damage to the extent of about (VO.OCO, It
was decided to rebuild on the site, which IS
Wxl32 feet, but it was decided Wednesday
that the new building of such- size would
prove Inadequate- Bnd the tearing down of
the four-story building adjoining Is deemed
to be better policy.
The four-story building, which I to. be
demolished, Is now occupied by the manu
facturing departments -of the wholesale
firm, being devoted to the spice,, baking
powder and laboratory departments, with
the lower floors used for the storage ol
' heavy stock. '
' Manager Pickens Is endeavoring to se
cure storage room with trackage facilities
for the storage of the heavy stock In the
building on the Tenth street side, which
will be removed and the manufacturing de
partments moved to the space thus 'made
The new eight-story warehouse will be
constructed In record time, as It has been
expressly stipulated by the members of
the firm that it be completed by next No
vember, and the plans will be submitted
for bids on construction as soon as it Is
possible for Architect Kimball to prepare

BoleDeiire o f Copple Murderer is to Cay
' Goodby to Her.
Still Says lie Does Nut Know What,
Iaipelled lllm and Thinks
lie Mast Have Been
Resigned to the fate he feela Is Inevitable
Fred Burke or L. R. Illgglns, the murderer
of Mr. and Mrs. W. L. Copple of Pender,
Is making but one request of the officers.
He wants to remain In the Douglas county
Jail until his mother, Mrs. Cora. Higgins
of Denver arrives. After that he does not
are much what becomes of him.
"I realise the enormity of the crime I
have committed," he repeated Thursday
morning in his cell at the county Jail," and
I realise there is no use making a fight.
I haven't any doubt but they would lynch
me If I were taken to Thurston county. I
expect to die, but I would rather be hung
legally than lynched. I think more of those
little children and the two lives I have
taken than about mvself. I am perfectly
resigned to my fate."
While talking Burke was lflng In his
bunk, his sore toe being too bnd to all&w
his moving around. While he expresses
deep grief at what he has done, he does
not give any evidence of emotion. His
Voice did not break nor did he shed any
tears when talking about the ease. He
still says he wnts to plead guilty. He
showed some signs of weakening on this
proposition, however, and once or twice
asked his visitors If they thought there
would be any use of his securing an at
torney to represent him.
IiOtf Story Pnre Fiction.
Burke denied emphatically that love for
13-year-old Blanche Copple had anything
to do with the murder.
"I liked all the children," he said, "Just
as any man would like a family of nice
children; but a man would be crazy to
fall In love with a 13-year-old girl. It also
Is not true that I told Sumner that I did
not like his father and that I would get
even with him. Mr. Copple and I never
had any words and he was a very nice
man to work for. I simply have no idea
why I did this terrible thing. I must have
been drunk."
Concerning the report that the gun with
which he did the shooting Is missing,
Burke said he does not remember of having
It after the shooting was done. He is sure
he did not carry It away with him.
So far he has received no word frrjni
his mother as to when she will arrive. He
is sure she will come, however, and he ex
presses a great desire to see her.
There is a strong probability that Burke
will have to have his toe amputnted. Slgng
of blood poisoning set In Thursday, and
while County Physician Van Camp was
dressing It Burke fainted.
(Continued from First Page.)
Dr. Landrlth recalled the fuct that most
appropriately the last general assembly
before the unlor was essentially a for
eign missionary meeting, and he thought
this first union assembly might be so prop
erly a home missionary meeting. "Then,
therefore," he proceeded, "he who un
worthily litters the opening message cf this
historic day speaks a heart plea for an
aggressive going ot our united denomina
tion into Judea and Samaria; does not
feci that he Is saying nught that would be
out of accord with the sentiment of the
veteran and beloved mlsatonnry moderator
of this body who Is not forgetting to talk
with God In our behalf, tne while that In
our stead Is preaching vne goBpel In the
uttermost parts of the earth.
Call to Possess West and South.
With ninety-five per cent of tho mem
bership of the former Cumberland Presby
terian Church living west and south of the
mld-populatlon city In which this assem
bly is meejlng, shall we not interpret the
voice of the recently effected Union as a
call from God to the .united church to pos
sess that west and south?"
After showing that, although as a re
sult of the civil war the taxable values at
tho south were lees than hrilf as large In
1870 as they were ten years eirller, many
lines of manufacturing Mid agricultural In
dustry have been multiplied from two to
tenfold during the last ten years, and that
even the value of the south's staple, the
cotton crop, has increased loo per cent,
the speaker asked if such a section does
not offer irresistible Inducements to any
church that wants to do Its duty, and at
the same time plant Itself In strategic
places, whence In the coming years It can
go forth to greater achievements for the
Master? Especially attractive to church
and educational enterprises Is the "greater
half of the south," Texas, Arkansas, Okla
homa and beyond, where both the now
united churches have mnde some begin
ning and where opportunities of church
growth and greatness are us abundant as
continued Industrial advancement Is sure.
The material development of a country Is
purchased at the price of faith and courage
and money and qualified men; permanent
church extension cannot be had at a lesser
The sentiment sometimes expressed that
the American Presbyterian church should
leave the south to the Southern Presby
terian church was combatted with the facta
about that church, which Is now numer
ically weaker than Is the united church In
the southern states of Arkansas, Kentucky,
Missouri. Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas,
and 43 per cent of whose strength ta In tha
Carollnas and Virginia, "Southern Pres
byterlanlsm, without our co-operation, can
never overtake the Presbyterian possibili
ties and demands of the south In general,
and of the southwest In particular. That
this co-operatlor. will be welcomed nobody
acquainted with the liberal leadership of
the southern church need ontertaln a doubt,
and, that this same co-operation shall never
degenerate Into unfraternal rivalry, but
Instead that it shall hasten a consummation
so devoutly to be wished the ultimate orr
ganic union ct the two churches, it is the
plain duty of all concerned to strive to
New Doctrine Ontalos.
Claiming that the religious needs of the
south are not proportionately greater than
are those of other sections, and rejoicing
in the recent revivals of educational In
terest and civic integrity. Dr. Landrlth re
minded his bearers that "the old south
Inherited the institutions and traditions of
human slavery," and by natural process of
environment came to believe that tvl to
be good. But the new south has accepted
the true doctrine that all slavery la wrong
and has made a matchless h-ginnir.g In
freeing Itself from that other galling
bondage' of the ages, the rule of the
licensed liquor traffic, in comparison with
the worst forms of which, the severest
phases of human slavery were akin to
btuevolence. This church must henceforth
wield its mighty Influence for evident
righteousness and against plain wrong
doing, no mmtr what political or other
agencies may favor or condemn the
church's attitude. That way lies prosper-
I'v for the cause of the salvation of souls.
True courage and dependable character
always make baste to accept the overtures
J of uniformly mora! and uncompromis
ingly militant church, a church that has
no weapons to wield against the Jtr-d and
no olive branches to offer to tha bad."
Approachlr.g the delicate race question,
with which, ho said, eveir church entering
the south must reckon. Dr. Landilth said:
"Forgetting the things that are behind,
so far as these things were better unre
cailed, let the American Presbyterian
church come bravely and generously up to
tho support of the Intelligent Caucos'an
Christianity of the south In behalf of what
politics. Ignorance, demagnguery and re
rellglous prejudice have conspired to render
so delicate and difficult the spiritual sal
vation and practical education of the south,
ern Afro-American. The fact will be
quickly discovered and the error promptly
corrected, if I misinterpret the wishes Of
the vast majority of the thoughtful In all
churches of the south, In saying that they
are as sincerely and unselfishly concerned
for the religious. Intellectual and industrial
well being of the negro race as the most
philanthropic northern benefactors of the
colored people ever were."
Regarding the effort to prejudice the
progress of the United Church tn the south
by calling It the "Northern" Presbyterian
church, the speaker asked, after noting
the growth of patriotic spirit and the. fra
ternal feeling existing today, even between
the old soldiers who once fought each
other: "Think you that this same south
land, cherishing no longer, where patriot
Ism or commercialism is conoerned. Its
half-century-old animosities, will now re
vive Its long slumbering sectional hate for
the pitiable purpose of denying to a church
for awhile mainly northern, the coveted
privilege of belni a blessing to a land
sanctified by the blood of American chlv
airy, and now so ready for -a baptism, of
the blood of the Lnmb that was slnln from
the foundations of the world? Who so
base as to credit the cruel slander?"
Interpreting the Confession. '
Mentioning among the hindrances to the
success of tho United Church the bitter
opposition engendered by misinformation
nmong the opponents of the union In thy
former Cumberland Presbyterian church.
Dr. Landrlth said:
"Ours Is the present duty of making
known with brotherly kindness that, as re
vised In 1!0S. the Wetmlnster Confession
of Faith admits of no fatalistic Interpreta
tion; that whatever, In any part of the
Confession of Faith, may appear to any
one as contradicting the genuine revision
made In 1303, by change of text, by de
claratory statement andTby added chapters.
Is henceforth to-be Interpreted In strict
accordance with this blessedly evangelical
revision; that we believe that all Infants
dying ln,lnfancy are saved through Christ;
that the war between sections of th)
United States should not be continued
among the Christian people of the re
United States; and that the Presbyterian
church was as sincere aa It was wise when
adequate and already effective arrange
ment was made for removing social and
racial friction at the sensitive points by
making constitutional provision for sep
arate preebyterles and synods for different
races, this provision being hedged about
by no condition that, before such separate
presbyteries can be had by either race, the
consent of the other must be secured."
In a vigorous declaration to the effect
that It has always been the published and
determined purpose of the union majority
to allow to the dissenting minority all prop
erty and other rights to which ethically
they are entitled, Dr. Landrlth said:
"There has never been uttered, even In
the privacy of , pastoral oversight com
mittee rooms or In the offices of solicitor
in chancery, any sentiment, design or de
sire out of harmony with the policy that,
If every superior court in the land shall
decide as we believe they will rlo, that
this union was .legally effected and that
all of the property of the former Cumber
land Presbyterian church goes by law with
the majority Into the American Presby
terian church, and shall further decree
that the union majority or minority In any
local church la legally entitled to the whole
property, the persistent opponents of union
In every local church ihall have every
penny to which they are morally entitled."
Report on Temperance.
The report of the permanent committee
on temperance contained tho following:
"The past rear has been one of great
activity and gratifying progress. The lines
of battle are becoming more clearly de
fined and the temperance forces are align
ing themselves for the impending conflict
and victory.
"There Is no other reform that Is mak
ing auch headway in recent months as' the
temperance-j-eform. The tide of opposition
against the liquor traffic Is rising higher
every day and Is registering Itself In many
practical ways.
"One-half of the area and more than ona
thlrd of the population of the United
States Is now under prohibitory law. The
attitude of science, industry, education,
religion, Journalism, sociology, law, labor,
capital, business, economics, art, litera
ture and general public sentiment all
prophesy the overthrow of the liquor traffic."
