Lessons from the crime and confessions of the dynamiters, the Mc- Naniara brothers, were drawn in lola pulpits yesterday." The ministers who announced tliey would speak on the celebrated cases were heard by unusually large congregations. 'The most disgusting and surprising feature of the case,' said Rev. Carl W. Nau, rector of St. Timothy's Episcopal church, in his morning sermon, "is iliat the motive for tliis cold blooded murder of tweuty-one innocent workment should have been attributed to a principle—the uplift and rights of the working man. Truly, this is a most realistic picture of the wolf in sheep's clothir.g." The minister scored Attorney Clarence Darrow for accepting an enormous fee from the wages of the union laborers of the country to defend men whom he knew to be guilty of an atrocious crime. "Capital," said the preacher, "may have committed many crimes but what results can be gain ed by violent, revengeful methods? It Is Inconceivable that apparently in telligent men coul.d deliberately plot nKalnat the lives of fellow m<.-n and ^pliin (he destruction of property and expect Hurh action to bo of good ef- f «!ct. Two wrongs cannot make right. One preHUiiins that the McNa iimraH were taking up, as they claim (he cause of poverty. Poverty bos been called the mother of crime. Ko, then the want of sense is the fa thcr. And the want of sense Is most apparent in this case. There was absolutely no reason to bopytor any good result out of such a o»nne." The minister applied the lesson to all walks of life, showing the futility of doing evil with the expectation of good results to follow. Rev. C. F. Johnson, pastor of Trinity Methodist Church, in his evening sermon reviewed the crime and confession of the McNamaras and pointed out the forceful lessons contained This sermon will be published as the Saturday sermon in the Register this week, it being Rev. Johnson's turn to supply the same. 2 white Kansas CltyLIrestocl^ Kansas City. Dec. ' 11.—CATTLE receipts 15,0i(M>.

One of Uie clasHlest shows In Kansas for 5 and 10 cen^i- Thanking you •again we will endeavor In the future, as wn liave In the past, to merit your appreciation. We remain, yuurs truly, M.UESTir and ELITE, J. G. TlBdale, Tttgr. If any person aside from yourself, is receiving gas through your meter you are responsible for the wliole bill and you'll have to look to the consumers on your line to pay you. If they will not pay a fair proportion of the bill you lose and there's no way out of It Yon cannot compel the city to Install meters for each'one of your tenants either in home or office build ing. This Is the decision of the state Supreme eourt as handed down In the case of R. M. Cunnlgham, et al., vs. the city of Tola, Mr. Cunninghiun and associates own the old court house building at Madison and Jefferson avenue. Ilie ground floor is occupied by a drug store and Uie upper floor Is utilized for offices by lawyers, doctors, real estate and abstract men. Gas was served to each tenant through the meter belonging to the biflldlng. For a time, things ran along smoothly. Then Mr. Cunningham concluded that it was notfiing more than fair that each tenant should be individullay liable for and settle his own gas bill. It was troublesome to attempt to prorate the gas bill 'for so many offices. One man believed he used much less gas than the others and the^other man was convinced that his neighbor received a great deal more gas than be did and paid less for It It was up to Mr. Cunningham to pay the gas bill every month and then make the rounds of the tenants to collect This process grew so unsatisfactory that he refused to pay for gas used by any person other than himself and when the city, upon his refusal to pay. attempted to shut off the gas, ho brought injunction proceedings prohibiting the city from discontinuing his service, lie furnlstlcd bond to secure the payment of the gas bill in case he lost the suit and the matter was tried out in the courts. Judge Oscar Foust, in the district court, held that Mr. Cunningham' and associates were liable for all gas used through their metter and that it was not obll gatory upon the city to require the installation of meters for each consumer. Mr. Cunningham appealed the case to the Supreme court where a decls ion was-rendered late Saturday afternoon. The appellant lost in the high est court in the state and must pay the bill which has accumulated during the year or more that the case has been In court. The decision means that owners of buildings occupied by more than one party and served through the meter belonging to the building will have to fix their rental charge high entfugh to cover gas bills or accept the alter native of paying the bill each month and then making the fairest proportionate charge that he can devise for each individual tenant We have felt all along," said Com missloner of Finance Frank E. Smith this morning .commenting on the decision, "that we would win. It Is Im practical to place a dozen or more meters In one building, one for each consunier. Again suppose one consumer should fall to pay. If we shut off the gas for non-payment, we would have to shut off every consumer in the building to get action on the one delinquent. There's the two ex!- tremes. Neither of them practical or satlcfactory. The only feasible thing to do is to chorge the owner of the building with the gos, permitting hint to make whatever arrangements he may see fit and satisfactory." The outcome of the case was awaited with much Interest as numerous owners of buildings found themselves In the same position as Mr. Cunningham. A decision adverse to the city would have meant the Installation of many meters In of^ces around town. As It Is the same old trouble will remain—Inability to pro-rate gas bills among, tenants satisfactorily. In all our experience we have never been so well prepared to serve the Christmas buyer as at this time. We are doing a tremendous business, is absolutely necessary that we should. We are bound to keep it up. We are detei^iiied to make this ihe best month in our history and to be sure of success we are making bargains that are ^positively compelling by reason of the quality and low prices. tio-$io~$io-- Sends a Piano Home Sends a Piano Home Sends a Piano Home Sends a Piano Home Victor-Victrol —The Harlow Mercantile Companj- bought a store at Sapulpa Okla., last week. PTOMAIXE POISOX FATAL. Xrs. WiUlam Jackson, Colored, Sne- cnmbed This Morning.
