GOODNESS THE AIM
Dr. Francis J. Van Horn Says
It Is Best of Life.
SERMONS IN THE CHURCHES
Pastors and Visiting Clergymen Dis
cuss Topics of Interest to Their
Hearers in Many Houses
Old men and young filled the Toung
Men's Christian Association rooms at
Fourth and Yamhill streets to overflow
ing: yesterday afternoon to listen to
Dr. Francis J. Van Horn, pastor of the
First Congregational Church, of "Wor
cester, Mass. Dr. Van Horn's address
was a stirring appeal to men .to live
a clean, straightforward life. His sub
ject was "There's a Boy in Your Eye."
The speech was preceded by two vocal
solos by Mrs. J. S. Hamilton.
In explaining his rather unusual sub
ject, the speaker said: "Every boy
has looked into the face of his father
and beheld his own image mirrored in
his father's eye. He sees the outward
reflection but falls to realize, perhaps,
that his very self Is burled deep in
that father's life and form a part of
his being. There Is not a father who
is worthy the name, who does not have
his boy's interest vitally at heart, and
hopes and believes that some day he
will become a noble, upright man.
Youth Comes to Its Own.
"And so I say that the boy. the young
man, Is In his father's eye; and he is in
his mother's eye; and he is coming
more and more to be In the eye of the
whole world. Youth has come Into Its
own within the last contury. We are
beginning to appreciate young man
hood. Never was there a time when
young men were doing so large a
share of the world's work. They are in
the saddle riding at a gait never known
before; whether they ride for a fall
or not depends upon themselves. The
world is looking at them anxiously,
and' it Is for them to prove their
Continuing Dr. Van Horn said: "We
are beginning to appreciate the worth
of character as never before. The busi
ness world, which is interested only in
'dollars and cents, is seeking young
men of good character because It pays.
And in this search It is found that the
best material is among our Christian
young people. It Is an actual fact that
Christianity has a market value.
Just Simple Goodness.
"But it is not a matter of money
that I want to present to you today.
The pros of things material makes it
seem at times that the measure of a
man today is a measure of stocks and
bonds; and yet we know it is not so.
The groat thing In life is just simple
goodness. That is the measure of a
man today as it has been through the
ages. We do not need to ask what
goodness is. I am tired of all these
sophistries and questions as to where
lies the line between good and evil.
When excuses are swept aside; .whan
disguises are put away; when our
naked souls deal with .naked facts,
each one knows what goodness is.
"The appeal I wish to make to you
I can best Illustrate with an incident.
An excursion boat on a mountain river
landed at & lonely spot and a coffin
was taken from It and placed at the
feet of an old man standing on the
bank. It contained a son who had gone
forth years before to work In a large
city. He had not gained wealth or
power, and the passengers upon the
boat, knowing the simple story, saw
only failure. But a business man, the
owner of groat industries had left the
boat, and told the father the story of
his son's life.
"Although he had not been brilliant
in his business career, he had been a
faithful worker and had come back
pure and clean as when he loft, a boy.
It was a case of success, not of failure.
Each one of us must meet that test; we
must end life as we bogan it. pure and
clean. We shall have succeeded if each
day we know that we are right In the
eye of the world, in the eye of our
father. In the eye of God.
CHILD LABOR HIS THEME.
Professor Lindsay Says Youths
Should Be Protected by Public.
Professor Samuel McCune Lindsay, of
the University of Pennsylvania, and sec
retary of the National Child-Labor Com
mittee, with headquarters in New York
City, spoke on the subject of "Child La
bor" at the morning service In the First
"Unitarian Church. Dr. Lindsay said that
among the great advances In the humani
tarian movement for which the nineteenth
century stands out unique in history, none
was more significant to consider in these
opening years of the twentieth century
than the work done for children, the
greater opportunities guaranteed to the
young, and the greater reverence for the
rights of childhood.
In no work does the call for social
service In this day and generation im
pose upon men greater obligations to
continue and strengthen that which has
been accomplished in the past. The es
tablishment of the free public school and
allied educational facilities make it Im
perative that all the children of the land
are protected In the free and equal en
joyment of these aids to development of
sound bodies, trained hands and Intelli
gent minds. The history and causes of
child-labor In England and the United
States were pointed out. Not only the
mechanical changes in modern industry
and the greed for gain and the indiffer
ence and sometimes cruelty of employers,
but today in even greater degree poverty
which the community should help to re
lieve rather than permitting it to engulf
the innocent and helpless victims of ten
der years, and the greed of shortsighted
and poorly educated parents contribute
to augment the army of Infant tollers.
In spite of more than a decade of agi
tation in the United States, official statis
tics show that the number of girls be
tween 10 and 15 years of age employed in
manufacturing and mechanical pursuits,
precisely where the dangers to health,
morals and normal development are
greatest. Increased 150 per cent, and" the
number of boys similarly employed more
than doubled, and this within a single
decade ending In 1900. The industrial
advance within the last five years, leads
to the belief that in spite of all the feeble
efforts at legislation to the contrary, a
similarly startling increase In child-employment
in mechanical Industry and per
haps also In trade and transportation,
has continued. Yet this is a period of
expanding opportunities in education and
"The question of the hour," continued
Profej-sor Lindsay, "is whether we can
democratize these opportunities or wheth
er we are willing to see a growing army
of children deprived of their birthright
through no wilful act of their own. We
need a national sentiment on this ques
tion, a national standard, solidly em
bedded in -public opinion, even If it can
not be put pn the national statute book
by reason of the limitation of Federal
powers. States like Oregon, which stands
at the front in advanced legislation on
this subject, must do missionary work
in less favored communities and lend a
helping hand to the forward movement
in sister states, until there Is no child
in all America who has not the chance to
grow, to play and to be Intelligently pre
paredthat Is, educated before it Is
asked, to assume the serious burdens of
our modern Industrialism."
The speaker also dwelt upon the dan
gers morally of certain trades especial
ly street trading for young children, and
described the methods of regulating It
that have been successfully adopted In
England. He also told of the organiza
tion and work of the National Child
Labor Committee, and of the recent de
feats of. legislation In the South, out of
which he confidently predicted would
come greater victories.
The South Is no less mindful of the wel
fare of Its children than we are in the
North and West," the speaker said. "Its
problems are harder to solve and we
should stand shoulder to shoulder with
the noble men and womon in these
Southern States who are fighting for the
right in this matter and tictory will be
theirs and ours."
CHURCH AD WORKIXGSIEN
Rev. A. J. Montgomery Says Gap
Between Them Is Closing Up.
"The Church and Workingmen" was
the subject of the sermon of Rev. Andrew
J. Montgomery yesterday morning at the
Third Presbyterian Church, East Pine
and Thirteenth streets. Mr. Montgomery
announced his text as "Christ was a car
enter," and from that deduced the con
clusion that the church was for the work-,
ingmon as well as for the rich.
"There are ideal propositions made,"
said the speaker, "to harmonize the rela
tions of labor and capital, and to cure all
evils In the human family, but let us
throw these aside and consider this sub
ject purely from a practical basis. Christ
was a carpenter. For IS j-oars he worked
In a carpenter shop, fashioning agricul
tural Implements, and then spent three
years in his ministry. The 18 years of
service as a worklngman Is a significant
fact with the church. All his disci pies
were laborers, except Paul, who was the
accomplished theological scholar, and he
became a tentmakfsr, partly to get in sym
pathy with men who worked and partly
to earn his living. So we And" the found
ers of the Christian religion wore men
who worked with their hands. Is net this
a significant fact?"
"The tendency of the present time is to
bring the church and the workingmen to
gether. At the last General Assembly
of the Presbyterian Church a department
of church work was established under
the head of 'church and workingmen,'
and at its head was placed a capable man.
And so the gap. real and Imaginary, be
tween the church and the workingmen. Is
being closed up they are getting closer
together. It had been a custom for some
ministers to spend months at common
labor to get in sympathy and touch with
laboring men. And now here In Portland
we sent our ministerial delegate to the
Portland Federated Trades Union, and we
received a delegate from that body in our
ministerial association. And so there is a
getting together of church and laboring
men. This will help solve all the vexed
questions of the day. Christianity will
solve the problems that cause contention
in the economic field. And we should
cultivate the worklngman and make the
church his home, and as established by
Jesus Christ, the carpenter, for him and
the salvation of the world."
HpLD DEDICATORY SERVICES
Impressive Sermons at the German
Evangelical House of Worship.
Appropriate dedicatory services were
held In the new German EvangoKcal
Church, Tonth and Clay streets, yeater
day morning, afternoon and evening.

Bishop S. C Breyfogel, of Philadelphia,
preached in the morning and afternoon.
His discourse in the morning was deliv
ered in German from the text. "Alt Is
Yours." In the afternoon he chose the
subject, "The Power of Christ's Resur
rection." This sermon, given In English,
was a careful study of the fundamental
doctrines of Christianity. The speaker
showed by reference to Scripture how
Christ had overcome all worldly power in
Its different forms, and finally 'conquered
death Itself. He showed that Christ's
life only proved what men might do. and
that hy following his example all things"
All Gtrman pastors in the city united in
the evening service. Among the speak
ers were Rev. John Hopp, of the German
Congregational Church; Rev. Mr. See
becker, of Spokane, and Rev. Mr. Maurer.

the German Methodist Episcopal Church.
The speeches were given partly in Ger
man and partly in English.

And that well-known society bookmak
er smiled smiled because he won enough
from his frtend to buy a fur-lined over
coat, a pair of yel!ow spats and a pea
greon necktie. The sooloty bookmaker
took his smile home with him, because he
wants to use It today when he collects.
He's not making any excuses for Port
land's failure to win the game after beat
ing the barrier and getting off two lengths
la the load. He will leave the explana
tion for that very young person who
doubles in society and writes baseball
criticisms and says, "McHale. made a
clean-cut home run."
Funny how differently some persons will
persist In seeing things. Now there were
people present at yesterday's matinee
who would have bet their eyes out that
the Giants, with Garvin in the box, would
defeat Oakland. Some of them .were right
noisy like. Just as noisy and even more
willing to hot were a host of Oakland ad
mirers, and from the frequent exchange
of "Uncle Sam's legal tender, some one
beside our hero, the society bookmaker,
must have cleaned up a little Labor day
money. The brains of some people are
like the brains of some critics. If it were
dynamite that they carried underneath
their skypioces, and should It explode. It
would not blow on their hats.
All this has little to dQ with the game.
It is just mentioned here in passing to
show that a critic can get lame and fall
down. It is belter to write about the
game, however, than to dwell any more
upon Irresponsible young persons. To be
gin with, there were no "perfect home
runs," although the Giants fell upon
Oscar Graham In the opening Inning and
trounced him for two doubles and a sin
gle. Jakey Atz led off with a single, and
Van Burcn died sending him to second.
Mike Mitchell fell against one that earned
him two bases. Atz scored, and when
Schlafiy hit the fence in rightfieW for
another two-base hit, Mitchell came
It looked like curtains for Oakland.
They were slow to begin, but they fin
ished with a rush, and the absence of
"perfect home runs" did the rest. In the
third inning. Richards, who is romping
around in Brick Devereaux's brogans at
third, sneaked in a blnglc. With Byrnes
and Graham tucked away. Garvin fed
Van Haltren one that he kited for two
sacks, scoring Richards. This looked bad.
It looked worse in the fourth, when Dun
leavy's single hooked up with Mosklman's
two-ply swat, sent In the run that tied
It was a pitchers battle after this, with
the two "G.'s" fighting it out. Twice
Garvin pulled out of a tight hole. The
third Urne was a charm. In the ninth.
Moskiman, whose fair friends applauded
him with great glee when his drive tied
up the score, wanted some more of the
same kind of applause, and he poked out
a single. Richards dumped him down to
second, and he scored on the drive of
Jimmy Byrnes' that bounded and hit
Sweeney on the shoulder. This won the
game, for a double play, from Byrnes to
Kolly, ruthlessly slaughtered Portland's
chances In their half.
There will be two gamos today. The
morning game will be called at le:39. and
the afternoon one at S. This will be
Oakland's last appearance here, so a big
crowd should be on hand to bid them

JEFFRIES DOES NOT RESPOND
Offered $1000 to Referee the Brltl
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept 3. Manager
Coffroth. of jthe Colma Club, has not yet
received a response from James Jeffries
regarding the proposal of the champion
acting as referee in the Britt-Nolson fight
next Saturday. Jeffries a few days ago
was notified by telegraph that the sum
of 5KM would be paid him for his ser
vices In the ring, but no Intimation has
as yet come from Catalina Island, where
Jeffries is staying, that the offer was
satisfactory or othorwise.
Crowds of visitors attended the Britt
and Nelson training camps today and the,
favored ones were permitted to see the
pugilists at work. Britt Is doing the
lightest kind of exercise. He Is a few
pounds oyer weight and will keep himself
at that point until a day or two before
the match. He makes weight easily and
considers himself in good condition. Satis
factory reports come also from Nelson's
Wavcrly Golf Tournament.
The Waverly Golf Club has arranged for
a men's open handicap tournament to be
held today, both morning and afternoon.
The links are in perfect condition and this
event practically opens the Fall season.
The club Is now in a flourishing condition.
Its membership list has been growing
rapidly during the last year and con
tains in the neighborhood of 40) names.
It is expected that the coming Fall will
be the most successful reason yet exper
ienced. A bungalow has been constructed
during the Summer, which will provide
ample accommodations for the members
and their guests.

WIND FAILS TO BLOW
Synamox Is Blown on Sandsplt and
Bends Rudder, hut the Entire
.Regatta Fleet Gets
Many of the Portland yacht-owners
who took part in the races at Astoria
returned yesterday from the city by
the sea. Ther all made good time up
and all used a novel method to hasten
their speed when becalmed. Only one
accident marred the trip, which, how
ever, did but little damage.
The Zephyr was the first to get away
leaving- Astoria on Friday at 2 P. M.
She was soon followed by the Gadfly
Albatross, Naiad and Synamox. A
strong northwest wind was blowing:
when they left, which Increased almost
to a gale. All of the yachts made
Tongue Point without m!3hap except
the Synamox, which was blown ashore
on the spit and bent its rudder so as to
be helpless. A passing- gasoline fish
boat pulled her off and towed her to a
nearby dock, where, with the aid of a
blacksmith, the rudder was soon back
In Its place almost as good as new and
the Synamox hastened to overtake her
companions. When off Stella all the
yachts were becalmed and. in order to
hasten their speed, they all paddled
alongside a "raft of logs In tow of the
steamer Vulcan and by quick work
were able to make fast. This was at
7 P. M. Saturday night, and all went
to sleep on board their yachts. The
next morning-, a good breeze having
