TIIE MORNING OREGOXIAN, FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER ,24, 1909.
IS SADLY LACKING
Methodist Conference Finds
That Ministry Does Not Ap
peal to Young Men.
COMMERCIALISM THE CAUSE
Bishop Atkins and Pr. W. E. Vaughn
Speak of Great Opportunities of
the West and Present Needs
of the Church.
The great West and its opportunities,
and the tendency of young men to turn
to commercial pursuits, instead of'en
tering the ministry, was the keynote of
the remarks of Bishop Atkins and Dr.
TV. E. Vaughan. editor of the Pacific
'Methodist Advocate, at the opening of
the forty-four'h sessions of Columbia
Conference. Methodist Church South,
yesterday morning In the First Church.
Union avenue and Multnomah street.
Lengthy comment was made on the op
portunities offered on the great Pacific
Coast, and the fact that the church
had not the men to handle the work
Bishop Atkins said that the Methodist
Church South was not the only one in
this situation. Dr. C. E. Cline asked
the speaker if this situation was not
the result of the commercial spirit,
and cited the fact that a presiding
elder in Oregon had recently resigned
to go Into business.
Bishop Atkins replied that the com
mercial spirit was the cause of the
lack of ministerial material and that
It was the same complaint all over the
whole country and affected all de
nominations alike. In speaking of the
Pacific Coast Bishop Atkins declared
that the advantages and opportunity
were beyond estimation, beyond those
of the East, and remarked sarcastically,
"The great West is even too good for
the set that is in it." asked if he re
ferred to the preachers Ire said he re
ferred to all classes, his idea being
that the people of the West' did not
appreciate Its advantages.
Takes Cp Religious Literature.
Dr. Vaughan delivered an eloquent
address, in the course of which he said
that in 1902 when he stood with Rev.
E. H. Mowre. pastor of the Portland
Church, in Arizona, he did not expect
to be in the splendid new Portland
church in 1909. He devoted himself to
the discussion "of religious literature,
. declaring that to this literature the
minister and Christian must look for
mental food. He pointed out that there
were publications for best stock, for
mines, and even for the raising of
valuable cats widely read, while re-
.' liglous publications were the first to
The conference was organized by
election of the following officers: C
H. Cleaves, secretary; J. E. Walbeck,
statistical secretary: W. T. Goulder, as
sistant secretary. Time of sessions was
fixed in the forenoon between 9 and
11:45. Bishop Atkins announced the
transfer of K. N. Meares from Okla
homa Conference, and W. A. Ore and
J. H. Dills, of the East -Columbia Con
ference, to Columbia Conference, and
their names were enrolled. Rev. H. A.
Deck, of United Evangelical; Dr. C. E.
Cllne, Methodist; Rev. John Flinn, pi
oneer Methodist; Rev. J. T. Abbett. city
Methodist missionary; Rev. J. L Larson,
Danish Methodist, were introduced to
the conference. .
Reports Are Submitted.
Bishop Atkins filed the report of Dr.
J. B. Hamilton on the educational work
of the Methodist Church South, show
ing great progress. It set forth that
Columbia Conference was assessed 160.
The report was referred to the com
mittee on education. The report of Dr.
J. B. Cunningham, on the correspond
ence 'school of the church, was also
submitted. The bishop remarked that
he regarded this department one of the
most' Important of the Methodist
Church South, as most of the ministers
received their literary education
E. B. Jones, presiding elder, submit
ted his report, in which he said that
membership throughout the conference
had increased. He said that the minis
ters were hardworking and faithful
men. C. L. McCausland, of Seattle, re
ported that the membership there had
Increased from "0 to 110 during the
year. It was Intended, he announced,
to sell the present property and secure
another site, and erect a modern church
Bishop Atkins, commenting on the
work inr general, declared that the or
ganized Bible class would solve many
of the problems of the inactive church,
and would also help out the Epworth
League. The bishop declared that he
had no. use for a minister-or church
that did not do something, and a church
that did not have a struggle never
amounted" to anything. He cited the
Portland Church and Rev. Mowre. "You
cannot raise a healthy baby on the
hothouse plan," declared the bishop,
"and a church raised that way Is ready
to be burled."

Astoria Gains Ten Citizens.
ASTORIA Sept. r.-(Speclal.)-Y ester
day afternoon was citizenship day in the
Circuit Court, and ten applicant for ad
mission were passed upon favorably. One
applicant was denied admission without
prejudice, for the reason that his wit
nesses were keepers of saloons in the
lower end of the- town, who had -been
found guilty of selling liquor on Sunday.
Special Agent Hazard, of the Federal
Immigration Bureau, who 'conducted the
examinations, held that these men were
not competent witnesses as to the good
moral character of the applicant, and for
that reason the application was denied,
with the understanding that it might
come up again at a future session of the
court with other witnesses.
Hunts Bat to Death;
Xante at Good Samaritan Recall
Old Superstition, and Now Finds
It Hard to Sleep.
WHAT is the precise penalty super-
stition has attached to seeing a
bat? Is it any worse to' kill the bat;
but above all what may be looked
forward to if the little ceature be
chased to death In a hospital ward?
This Is the series of questions for
which Miss Carrie Joseph, a pretty
nurse on night duty at the Good
Samaritan Hospital, vainly seeks an
answer. Every night at the midnight
supper table she propounds the ques
tion to her associates, for she is really
superstitious and now lives In dally
flread of the horrors her heedlessness
may have invonea.
Monday night a tiny bat flitted into
the entrance hall of the hospital and,
being spied by the nurse there on duty,
flew up the stairs. On the second
floor the chase was taken up b Night
Superintendent Owen, who pursued so
vigorously the flying little animal that
in terror it dashed over the various
floors of the hospital. Patients and
nurses alike screamed In horror as the
uncanny thing touched their faces in
the half-twilight that prevails at night
In the wards.
Attracted by the screams of several
other nurses. MIsb Joseph took up the
pursuit on the floor of the lofty fifth
floor ward. She endeavored to reach
the bat with a mop where it had taken
refuge high up in the corner of a win
dow, andsucceeded. Then she literally
chased it along passage after passage
until she had raced right around the
building. , The bat had scarcely reached
the ward again when it fell dead from
Seeing the result of her chase, Miss
Joseph became horror-stricken. Some
where, she said, she had read of the
dire penalty attached to slaying a bat.
"Of, course, I'm not superstitious, 1 but
do you think there Is really anything
In It?" she queried. Although It is now
three days ago she still puzzles, wor
ries and begs an answer to the ques
tion, "Is there anything In- it, for I
did not really kill the bat?"
LENIENCY SHOWN TO BOTH
Youth and Age Plead Guilty to First
Sentences of one year each were im
posed upon George L. Baird, a youth, and
Charles Liendstrom. whose hair Is begin
ning to be streaked with gray, by Judge
Bennett In the Municipal Court Wednes
day. Both were charged with larceny,
the complainants being different In each
Baird. who is barely more than 21
years old. is the son of a respectable
railroad employe living' at Astoria.
Through evil associates he got Into bad
ways in the city and at the time of his
arrest several charges were filed, against
him by the police. He pleaded guilty
to burglarizing the rooms of Carrie Wren
In the Helnze Apartments, where he
stole J20 in money. The other cases
against him were dropped.
Leindstrom is a logger who stole a
cheap watch and J200 in money from
John Peterson, another logger. Leind
strom and Peterson, when they came
from the logging camp, occupied a room
together at Third and Flanders streets.
Peterson wanted to send his savings to
his home by a postal money order; Being
a newcomer front his native land and
fearing that he would be unable to ex
plain what he wanted to the Postoffice
clerks he entrusted. the money to Leind
strom, who started for- the Postoffice but
Leindstrom had $160 of the money
.when -caught by the officers in a camp in
Washington County. He returned this
amount to Peterson and admitted his
guilt. In consideration of great penitence
the Judge permuted a charge of. simple
larceny Instead of grand larceny to be
placed against him, which saved him
from a term In the penitentiary. His
sentence will be served In the County
MEN'S MEETINGS TO BEGIN

The first of the Fall and Winter Sun.
dav afternoon meetings for men will be
heid in the new building of the Portland
Young Men's Christian- Association build
ing. Sixth and Taylor streets, next Sun
day at 3 o'clock. As the auditorium .is
not yet completed for use, the 'meetlrtg
will be held in the gymnasium on the sec
ond floor of the new building, where a
very large audience can be accommo
dated. W. M. Ladd, president of the Y. M. C.
A., will preside at this meeting and the
entire faculty of the educational depart
ment is expected to attend and occupy
seats on the platform. H. W. Stone, who
has been general secretary of the asso

llngworth and X. L. Bowman. This is
the regular Y. M. C. A. quartet, but Sun
day will be its first appearance at an
association meeting. It sang at the Ore
gon City Chautauqua the past Summer
and was highly praised.
As this Is to be the first meeting In
the new building, an unusually large at

and of other men who are interested In
the- association work. The building, although-
much of the interior Is not yet
completed, will be oen for inspection.
Mechanical, Architectural, Freehand
Drawing haa been called the "universal
language." It is at the basis of all the
mechanic arts. A machinist, electrician,
carpenter or anyone engaged tn any of
the Industrial callings, cannot advance
without being able both to read and to
make drawings. The Y. M. C. A. school
m its practical work clearly understands
this and has made large provision in the
new building to have thorough and prac
tical courses in the various lines of draft
ing and sketching.

"The evil of postal cards is very great.

I Can't Cure
I treat for real and lasting cures. Every
remedy I employ has itrf part in bringing
positive and permanent results. Under my
treatment the patient who notes improve
ment in his condition can feel assured that
real benefit and not a temporary drug effect
has been obtained, and can continue with
confidence that a thorough cure Is being ac
complished. Mv success as a specialist is
due to the fact that I accept no Incurable dis
ease and always treat with a cure jn view,
never resorting to the use of a remedy that
brings but temporary emmragement to the
I cure dis

Choose the Right
The most important thing for you
to do, if you are an ailing man, Is to
seek the services of THE RIGHT
DOOTOIi. Don't go to the first one
you see, simply because he happens
to be a physician. Choose the physi
cian who makes a specialty of cur
ing the kind of ailments from which
YOU suffer. The ordinary medical
man really knows but little about
curing the diseases peculiar to men.
He merely has a general knowledge
of such diseases because Ills prac
tice is spread out over the whole
range of diseases to which flesh Is
heir. He therefore knows a little
about all diseases and not a great
deal about any. If you should go to
him he may conscientiously try to
cure you, but, not knowing how, he
would have to experiment upon you.
In brief, he is a medical "jack of all
trades and master of none." Know
ing these facts, would you want to
trust your life in his' hands? If
your watch were to break or get out
of order, you wouldn't take it to a
machinist to have it repaired. . No,
von would know better. You would
take it to the very best WATCH
MAKER you could find. Then why
should you not use the same kind
of good, sound Judgment when you
need a doctor? Your health is cer
tainly as Important as your timepiece.

Afflicted Men Cured Forever
REASON FOR MY UNQUALIFIED SUCCESS
It is not so much in knowing
a great deal about many things,
as In knowing all about a few
things- When a doctor graduates
. from a medical college It Is after
the various professors have tried
to impart t li e I r . knowledge to
him. and It takes about 12 or 15
professors in' the various lines of
studv four years to qualify a
student for the practice of medi
cine, and then he Is simply
licensed not qualified.
Does a sane man expect a medi
cal student to go forth from a
college as thorough In knowledge
in each branch as the individual
professor who finds it necessary
to devote his entire time to a
single subject, such as anatomy
or chemistry, and who Is then far
from perfect? It is a poor rule
that won't work both ways if
one professor is not competent to
teach a student all about anat
omv, chemistry, physiology, his
tology, obstetrics, surgery, path
ology, bacteriology and the many
other branches too numerous to
mention, that he is expected to
he thorough in. how must the
raw recruit of a medical student
be expected to retain what the
combined efforts of 12 or 15 men
have tried to crowd into him? It
never has been done and never
will he. The doctor who Is suc
cessful is the doctor who spe
cializes in some particular line.
He does not have to be a hypo
crite about advertising, and de
votes all his time to his special
line of work, and Is therefore
a-onAT-n llv a man nrnflclent
enough to have something worth advertising and willing to pay the
market price, instead of sponging it in a hundred different ways.
I don't mean, however, that every doctor' who advertises Is alright
any more than every doctor who don't advertise. There are good and
bad on both sides of the fence.
My offices .have been established 31 years, are incorporated under
state laws and furnish best bank and personal references.

Bladder Ailments, Ulcers, Sores, Painful NTvelling, Hurnlng. Itching
