'Value of Man," His Theme.
Rev. 1 F. Young, pastor of St. John's
Methodist Church, spoke yesterday morn
ing on the "Value of the Man." as dis
tinguished from every other creation. The
speaker placed him above every other
living thing and said that he was dis
tinguished from mere animals by his fac
ulty to weep, make sacrifice and think.
and yet was the only living creature that
was disobedient to the will of his
"I object to everything that cheapens
our estimates of the man. said Rev-
Young, "and for this reason I object to
the haste that Is made at funerals. The
casket Is hurried to the grave and the
body is hastily buried, and then the
carriages drive away with great rapidity.
It cheapens the estimate of man. and
drives out sentiment. Man is little lower
than the angels.
"I object to the cremations of the hu
man body. There will come a time when
ever' house will have an oven for cre
mation to avoid the cost of an under
taker, and the ashes of the departed
will be kept In an urn, or vase on the
shelf until lost In moving about from
place to place. All this lowers our value
or man and reduces us to the material
lstlc view. It Is the mother who thinks
and plans for her sons and daughters,
and not the animal mother, it is the
mother who throws around her daughter
all the-love and protection she can, an
not the animal.

GOD OF INFINITE TRUTH
Declares That ThU Deity Abhors
"What Is False and That All
Creeds Cannot Be True
In His Sight.
Rev. Father George Thompson spoke on
the subject of religious Indifference at
St. Mary's Cathedral last evening. In part
"One or the Illogical and baneful the
ories generally diffused at the present
day consists In the absurd and pernicious
notion that It is a nutter or small Im
port what creed a man. professes. If only
he be honest In his dealings and faith
ful to the dictates of conventional mor-
llty. This theory Is known as Indiffer
entism. and means simply, that God looks
upon all forms of belief with equal favor.
and that a man Is privileged to study
Christianity as he would a menu card,
selecting that brand of faith best suited
to his taste.
The men who take this comfortabla
view or Christianity and are prepared to
bestow an approving smile upon all tho
variegated forms In which it has been
remolded, must never have carefully an
alyzed the reasoning which led them to
so preposterous a conclusion. Indifferent-
Ism Is absolutely void of reason, and Is
anathematized on every page or sacred
God or Infinite Truth.
"If God Is God at all he is of necessity
the personification of Infinite truth. By
reason of his very essence he loves what
Is true and abhors what is false. The
prophet understood this deduction when
he taught that lying lips are an abomi
nation to the Lord. To say therefore
that God regards all forms of Chris
tianity with equal favor is equivalent to
saying that he Is Indifferent whether a
man's mind bs a storehouse of religious
truth or a slnkttole for pernicious false
hood. For as everybody knows, the pre
tended exponents of revealed religion are
preaching contradictory doctrines. And
the contradictions are concerned sot
merely with the unimportant but with
the very fundamental of Christian faith.
Lutheianism stands for the doctrine or
original sin. and the historical and dog
matic fact or redemption: Unitarians, on
the contrary, reject original sin ax a
myth, and likewise all belief In a divine
redeemer. Many Episcopalians look upon
Christ a the rounder or an external, vis
ible, authoritative. undying church.
whereas the great majority of Protest
ants repudiate all such understanding or
Christ's words and works. Clearly
enough these matters have to do with
the very essence or Christianity. The
creed which assents and the creed which
denies can not "both be true.
All Creeds Not Good.
"Now to assert that this condition of
denial and contradiction, which has char
acterized Christianity since the Sixteenth
century, is a condition acceptable to God,
would be the height or Sroplety. God
could not leave men free to embrace
truth or falsehood, any more than he
could leave men free to keep the com
mandments or to Ignore them. The man
who understands the essential truthful
ness of God must appreciate the fact that
all creeds are not good In the sight or
God. and that it does make some differ
ence which creed one accepts.
"Sacred Scripture condemns Indiffer
entism as emphatically as It forbids
stealing and lying. After his resurrection
Christ gave his apostles the explicit com
mission which has procured to a part or
the world at least the fruits of his life
and death. 'Going, he said to them.
'teach ye all nations, baptizing them In
the name or the rather and or the son
and or the holy ghost. Teaching them
to observe all things whatsoever I havo
commanded you. And behold I am with
you all days, even to the consummation
of the world. According to the terms of
their commission, the apostles were au
thorized, not to promulgate fanciful laws
and theories of their own Invention, but
to t berore Jthclr hearers the very
truths and precepts which they had
learned from the lips or Christ hlmscir.
Christ did not commission his apostles
to make new creeds: he sent them forth
to preach what they had already received
from him, and they knew full well that
they were, by divine appointment, the
custodian or an undying and Immutable
"The notion that one religion is as
good as another has come to mean prac
tically that one religion Is as bad as an
other, and consequently many men re
gard religion as largely a human Inven
tion and consequently deserving or little
serious consideration. The step from in
different! rcn to Infidelity Is easy and
many are the men who have taken the
step. The 111 repute Into which revealed
religion has fallen with many men Is at
tributable to the logical break-down or
sectarian systems which have for three
centuries weighted true religion with the
burden of their own inconsistencies and
absurdities. Counterfeit coin passes at
times because there Is good coin in cir
culatlon. It Is the same with creeds.
The wise banker will examine creeds as
well as currency."

PREACHES SERMON" TO ADMEX
Dr. Short Emphasizes Necessity for
Honesty In Buslnos Life.
The admen of Portland were Invited to
the Taylor-Street Methodist Church last
night to hear a sermon prepared espe
cially for them by Dr. F. Burgctte
Short, on "dements of Success." Dr.
Short took for his text Romans XII. 17
"Provide things honest in the sight of
all men." and based his remarks on the
necessity of a foundation of honesty for
a successful career.
"The real measure of life Is being, and
not getting." he said. "God proposed that
every man should work and there Is

In conclusion. Dr. Short applied tho

An audience of men crowded the main
floor, balcony and gallery of the Mar

pacity yesterday afternoon to listen to
an address by Fred B. Smith, of Chicago.
International secretary of the Young
Men's Christian Association. His subject
waj "Sins That Kill." and the discourse
was given In connection with the. Inter
state convention of the Y. M. C A.,
which held its closing session last night.
Among all the audiences that have
packed the Marquam Grand. It Is seldom
that one has shown such Intense, ear
nest Interest as- was manifested yester
day. Jt is the fourth visit Mr. Smith has
paid Portland, and upon each occasion
vast audiences of men have gathered to
bear him. He Is one of the most elo
quent and direct religious speakers of the
country "at the present time, and his re
marks usually, meet with Immediate re

the stage of the theater, signifying their
Intention to accept Christianity.
Evils of Impurity.
Mr. Smith confined his remarks almost
exclusively to the consideration of the
evil of social Impurity, ne characterized
It as the most Insidious form of vice.
and said that Its prevalence throughout
America was alarming. His discourse
upon the subject was divided Into a dis
cussion of the cause, the results and the
In opening his remarks, Mr. Smith
called attention that the meeting was
probably one of the very last of any
character that would be held In the Mar
quam Grand. "I do not care very much
for playhouses." he said. 'Tmt I feel
rather sorry to sec the Marquam close.
This is the fourth time I have spoken
here, and I regret that It must be the
last. However much I may differ from
others as to the morality of theater
going. T want to express my appreciation
of the fact that the. owners of this thea
ter have never allowed It to be open upon
the Sabbath. Sunday desecration and
profantty, although not germane to my
discourse today, are two ot the greatest
evils that this country has to face, and I
never allow an opportunity to pass with

whom I speak a warning against them.
Three Sins Which Ruin.
Continuing Mr. Smith took up the main
theme of his speech. "Three alns are ris

America." he said, "which have worked
the downfall of every nation that has
gone down In disgrace. They are Intern

first I think it Is unnecessary to speak.
Men are fully educated against Its awful
results. "When we look around and see
all the woe. sorrow and death It has
caused. I marvel that a word needs to
be said on the subject of Intemperance.
To the young man who Is cursed with a
thirst for whisky through heredity. I ex
tend my hearty sympathy, but for the
young, man who deliberately drinks I
have little or none. He Is an unmitigated
fool with sawdust where he ought to
have brains. They may make the saloon
beautiful and attractive, but he knows
well the dangers that lurk there. They
may call It a cafe, buffet or rathskeller.

Gambling and Intemperance.
"Gambling ia in the same category as
Intemperance Both are talked of arfd
written of so much that anything I
might add would not emphasize their
evil results. But I am here to speak of
social Impurity, not because It Is an at
tractive subject, but because It must be
dealt with squarely. It Is the one sin
about which young men are not warned
sufficiently. Preachers keep silent upon
the subject and the press, which is the
other great rorce for morality, does not
discuss It with the same freedom It uses
In treating other subjects. But this evil
Is more widespread than all others. It
Is every man's battle, and It must be met.
There arc three stages of this evlL
call them the Ignorant, the vicious and
the hog degrees. At first young men do
not realize the sin which they are com
mitting. Later they find that the devil

fangs upon them. At last they sink to
all that Is lowest and basest In mankind.
Young man. with the stamp of immortal

respect, your honor and all that Is most
dear to you: It will take you lower than
the lowest dog.
All Sins Are Twins.
"Drummond said. 'All sins are twins.
and this Is especially true of the sin of
Impurity. In your search for companions
for you evil you will soon lose all regard
for virtue all respect for woman. And
while you are damning others you will
be damning yourself. Every sin makes a
picture of itself physically. Your dIsso-
lute life will soon be pictured on your
countenance, and your body will be
ruined. But worst of all Is the contami
nation or your moral nature. Tou will
lose your sense of responsibility. It will
make a liar of you.
"There Is but one remedy. You must
resolve to live the pure, the white life.
But a resolution Is not sufficient. If it
were every drunkard would be reformed
and every gambler would have quit the
game. You must ask God for strength.
The battle of life Is too severe for men to
face alone, but If you will ask for divine
help to live an upright Hie you will not

Rev. E. Xclson Allen Wants Local
Kev. E. Nelson Allen, pastor of the
Cumberland Presbyterian Church, In a
prelude to his sermon last night took
up several phases of the present polit

the standpoint of the Anti-Saloon
League. He asserted that It is tne
purpose of the wholesale Liquor ueat- i

against tho amendments to the local
option bill and thereby give a better
opportunity for the election of the
representatives -it desires to send to
the next Legislature.
"While temperance people are mar
shalling their forces against the
amendment." he said, "the liquor
forces are busy selecting; men for the
next Legislature. They are securing
the pledges of men to vote for another
Jayne bin In the event their amend

overlook the ract that the liquor In

law which was adopted by the people
of the state, and wherever applied has
brought about gratifying results..
"Second, we ought to re-elect Sheriff

of the duties of his office, and because
his dereat would mean a reinstatement
of the liquor forces.

The Doctor Named Them Correctly.
Some one said "Coffee never hurts any
one." Enquire of your friends and note
A Phlla. woman says:
"During the last 2 or 3 years I became
subject to what the doctor called 'coffee
Jags' and feh like I have heard men say
they feel who have drank too much rum.
It nauseated me. and I felt as though
there was nothing but coffee flowing
through my veins.
"Coffee agreed well enough for a time,
but tor a number of years r have known
that It was doing me great harm. but.
like the rum toper. I thought I could not
get along without It. It made me nervous,
disordered my digestion, destroyed my
sleep and brought on frequent and very
"When I got what the doctor called a
coffee Jag on. I would give up drinking
it for a rew days till my stomach re
gained a little strength, but I was always
fretful and worried and nervous till I
was able to resume the use of the drug.
"About a year ago. I was persuaded to
try Postum, but as I got It In restaurants
It was nothing but a sloppy mess, some
times cold, and always weak, and of
course I didn't like It- Finally I prepared
some myself at home, following th di
rections carefully, and found it delicious.
I persevered In Its use. quitting the old
coffee entirely, and feeling better and
better each day, till I found at last, to ray
great Joy, that my ailments had all disap
peared and my longing for ceffee had
come to an end.
