To say that" the leading scientists anti-Christian is as impertinent as to ntain that the church is generally licious of science," Rev. Ralph S. hman, D. D., stated in his sermon erday morning at the Asbury Sletho-Chureh on "The Modern Use of the le." The most pathetic controversy of mod-times has grown out of the dispute veen science and religion. It is pa-:ic because is is so unnecessary. Sci- and religion are allies in the great ch for truth and they ought to be ;ually respectful. As a matter of : they always have worked together. Nevertheless, the ignorance and nar--mlndedness of some present day col-professors ran only matched by churchmen of several centuries ago, ' persecuted Copernicus and Galileo their scientific discoveries. The at-pt of some college professors to parade r scepticism ami their contempt of Bible before their classes would be crous were it not so damaging to iui-ure students. It is important to recogniie that much lie controversy between science and rein has centered around the Bible. The ible has come from lack of understand-on both sides, of the real character purpose of the Jloly Scriptures. It lit to be remembered that the Scripts are not to be worshipped, hut are to sed as a divine means to help nient to Most of our young people come up king of the Bible as a hook written magic jn some distant heaven, and iled down to earth, just as the Mo-niedans think of the Koran, and the nions think of the Book of Mormon. if w are to save our young people i the w-epticism of ir elevent school hers, whose superficial knowledge of Bible goes only far enough to point discrepancies between the science cur- in the times of Moses and the time of is, or, more especially, between es' day and our own, then we must h our young people the modern inflation of the Bible."

The Rochester Gas and EleVtric Cor poration's Lawn street steam pla.it will be ready for operation, probably by October 1st, and will be ready to furnish steam at high and low pressures to an area within a R.OOO-foot radius of the plant company officials announced yesterday. Steam mains .will radiate from the plant as far as the river on the west, to Alexander street on the east. A block to a block and a half on each side of Slain street probably will be interlaced with conduits. , To Burn Powdered Csl. Two boilers will be: installed this year, each boiler being capable of supplying sixty tir.is of steam an hour at a pressure of 375 pounds. This is said to be tlie highest pressure maintained by any plart in Western New York. The boilers will burn powdered conl, pulverized to such a degree of fineness that 75 per cent, of the powder will pass through a 200-niesh screen. Each furnace will require six tous of fuel an hour when operatint! n,t full blast, and 33,000 cubic feet of eir will be supplied with the fuel so that combustion w ill be practically instantaneous and complete. This method of supplying coitl in powdered form not only gives a high efficiency, but practically eliminates s invalid soot. Powdered fuel boilers, o.i a smaller scale, have been in operation for about two years at the company's steam station in the river gorge, and have given satisfactory service. Great size of furnnct is required fur powdered fuel, each boiler requiring a combustion chamber 20 feet wide, IS feet ueep, and 30 feet high. As the steam comes from the boilers, it will be passed through a 3,000 kilowatt jon condensing turbine, before being distributed to the low pressure mains. After passing through the turbine, it will go through a rehcater to insure the dryness of the steam supplied. Underground mains will distribute the steam to the users. Steam at 100 pound pressure will be supplied for cookhg, industrial proeets work, and the like, while steam for nesting win tie sent out at five pounds pressure. Both mains will be carried in the same concrete duels. The heating mains will operate fr:n September 15th to May 15th. while the high-pmisure mains will carry steam throughout the year. It is expected that the station will be called on to furnish about 200.000,000 poinds of steam the first year. Provisions will be made for expansion of the boiler quipment as business increases. Fatally burned after its clothes had become ignited while playing with matches in its home yesterday morning, a three-old baby, Fraicis Dyer, son of Sir. and Sirs.

It scorns to me there cau be gait, 9n- outwaid-.-cauiiiiet facgaah ' To be let alone by the white man is the chief wish of nearly every American Indian, according to George P. Decker, of .Rochester, counsel for the Six Nations. Mr. Decker said last night that nearly all red men today would rather preserve their tiwn tribal life, lived in the days preceding the white man's invasion. Through hundreds of years the majority of this country's original inhabitants have held true to their fathers' teachings aa much as possible and yet the tremendous, preponderance of white peo pie over the Indinns to-day has made it impossible-for the Indian to preserve entirely a separate mode of life and thought. Some intermingling of white with red teachings has been unavoidable, even amongst the Indiana who most adhere to their primitive beliefs, the attorney pointed out. Keek Riches Through Claims. Drinking "lire water" was one of the first white man's customs to be adopted by Indians and one which affected thni seriously. Another ida which the whit invaders taught the red men is tbe love of money and it is such a matter that is causing considerable difference of opinion at the present time among the Six Nations. On April 1st there will be a conference of Indians on the Onondaga reservation near Syracuse, over land claims which, it has been claimed by certain Indiana, will mean millions of dollars of profits to their race with little work! the same old, alluring picture that has impoverished thousands of white, men anil which. In this instance, promises, accord Ing to Sir. Decker, to make many Indians poorer than they might be if they would refrain from playing with vain hope. For the past two or three yar many members of the Six Nations have been inspired with hopes of riches to be regained from New York lands that once belonged to the nations but which, over nearly 200 years, has been told or bartered by treaty into the hands of white men. Sir. Decker said. Several yars ago, Edward Everett, of Potsdam, then chairman of tbe Assembly Indian Committee, made an extended investigation of many Indian affairs and at its COSTINttBft ONPAOB TWESTT STATE RAILWAYS OUT TO CHANGE WAGE CONTRACT Separate Pacts Here and in Other Cities Will Be Sought at Meeting. Syracuse, March 22. (By the Associated Preaa)-r-T'he New York Stat Railways is planning to ask for a change in contracts with employee calling for separate agreements in Syracuse, Rochester and t'tica, when negotiations begin April 1st, it was understood here to-day. The men will ask for an Increase in wages of 7 rents an hour, with a demand for a guarantee of six hours' work a day for extra men instead of .the forty-two bours a week guarantee in effect since last April. The proposed demand of the railways management for separate agreements in ach city is believed to be a counter against claims of employees, which officials intimate tbey will oppose stubbornly, claiming living costs and conditions of the system do not warrant an advance in payrolls. , a .
