One of the most rcm-'trknldi' Rccnos ever enacted took iilacc ai tin- Hiipiist cliurcb last night. It was a church fllk-d with men in altiiiJjuic;' upon re llgious sorvlco. Tht-re may have been, a similar occurrence in tl ia city in days gone by but this wr lor nr>vir —Witnessed it. Everyono k lov.s how unusual it is to sc.? the pews of a church filled with men, miners not how reluctantly it may bo''ii<Iiiiiit»*d. and the service in the Ilaptist church last night was unique and particularly inspiring In this respect although there were many other impressive features. Aside from the fact that men—a lot of them—were prcsi>nt to Indicate their interest in religious affairs, the preachers who addrvsscd the meeting discarded all the theories of doctrine and preached the plain gospel that men like to hear. Tl>\: S. S. Hllscher. pastor of tho First Prec- byterian church, never got closer to men's hearts than he did last ntght. • He never took a better way to do it. There are times when ecclesiastical tenets must be expounded and when they are helpful in many ways but -for the most part, sermons like the laymen beard last nipht are the srr- Tnon's that speed straight lo the lis- Tener's heart. There wasn't any confusing of churchly issues, it was a plain open and shut i)roposition, on wfaich side are you? Men understood that and realized their responsibility. There wasn't a single chance to shift the issue off into a mnzc of fch- nJcal argument or fault findin.E; with this fellow's idea of tb? work of the -Gospel or that of the other one. Dr. HilscUer spoke of the need Df .aj ^^irlend in human life. He told how Tery necessary it Was to be particular about what kind of a friend one has. A vicious friend may give vicious advice and bring rtfin into the lives In which he gives counsel. A friend whose ideals ore high and whose life is clean Biay give good ad- vice and keep one in the paths of rlghteouBncss and life. The mlnlBtrr Illustrated his address by rcfi-rrnce -to Biblical characters that had trusted to unworthy friends. In forceful, convincing manner he told of tho ter- r rlble result. Drnwing the line when tln' carihly friend must part from thos" whom he loves best. Ur. Hilscher told of. -the Friend who steps In where the finite must Itaivc off and li-ads thr- way. Jn a stirring appeal, the minister pleaded with men to accept that Friend who would ketp them to the end. Dr. HH8cb «r was followed by Rev. _ Shapard. pastor of the Baptist church. He followed the thought suggested by tht? speaker who preceded him but emphasized the happiness which comes from the selection of proper friends. There is no chance to err if .men will but follow the guid>^ posts •which the Saviour sets along the'Xvay. It is by refusing to. heed these directions that men faSTlnto error. The speaker tfrew attention to the . influence which ievery man holds in ,the community: how he may be holding others back from accepting the Foriiier lolan In Controrersy irlUi liorinfftou (ity TotanclL- .lohn W. Knlso, the contractor, was before the city council Monday,night to adjust dlffer.euces over the payment of the final estimatb on the sow•T coniracf.

Chicago. 111., Jan. 16.—The promotion of Prof. Frederick Starr of the University of Chicago to the rank of commander in the Order ol> Leopold II is said to have been due chiefly to his researches in the Congo Free State: Tbe-Jjonor, conferred by King Albert of Belgium, was suggested by the Belgihn-minister of foreign affairs J. Davignon. The decoration, a large gold crdaa surmounted by a crown, was delivered to Prof. Starr through E. Havemik, Belgian minister at the City of Washington together with a printed letter of commendation and the official commission, signed by King Albert The Pathetic and Dramatic Tale of p fJBnne Plan's StmgKle Against j Great Odds. tVashington, Jan. 13.—Senator Lorl- nier (Ills.) in his testimony today before the Senate committee Investigating his election, was dramatic in the extreme. He told the story of his life, not quite in the way he told it In hla speech in the Senate and with many homely details. The man under fire was the coolest man In the room while he told the story. His voice was unshaken, except when he spoke of his mother —two years dead. Then his eyes glistened and his words Ivere a bit hoarse. The ticking of thd clock was audible between the sentences. "Why did Charles A. White vote for yon as senator?" was one of the ques tlons asked today. "He came to me and v''-.«nteered his vote." said Senator I.iOrlnier. "It was about ten days before my .election. I did not solicit his vote "Did White suggest he ought to have something for his vote?" "He never mentioned such a thing. "Why didn't you testify in your own behalf at the former Investigation, Mr. Hanecy, counsel for Lorimer, Inquired. , That question was asked in the Senate when I^orlmer's case was being voted on. The fact that he did not testify Is said to havie had much weight In Influencing the Senate's decision to.Qrder the preoent rehearing "Why. in the first place, counsel for the Chicago Tribune were prosecuting the case," Mr. Lorimer replied, and they stated they did not intend to connect me personally with .iny bribery or corruption; I felt that It was below the office 1 was holding to go on the stand to deny a charge which had not been made against nie and that It would establish a preced- B.
