Thc Plnkerton Detective Agency and

that two men and a woman had

with more than $2000. They were

as George Hammond, E. H. Carpenter
and Kota Pierce Heim. Carpenter was
arrested in Los Angeles, and the Port

away. Then they came to Portland
with Carpenter, said the woman. The
men obtained blank checks and Mrs.
Heim helped them make them out and
"Hammond came home drunk one
night and taunted me," said Mrs. Heim.
" 'Why do you take a chance with

said. "He told me later, though, that

Hammond virtually forced her. the
prisoner said, to cash some of the
checks in Portland. She did not want
the money, she said, and turned It all
over to Hammond. Carpenter, also,
was clever at the business, but his
skill was nothing compared to that of

Rev. C. C. Rarick Declares We
Are Living in Millenium.
PROPHECY IS DISCUSSED
Methodist Episcopal Clergyman Is
of Opinion That Prediction or
Second Coming of Clirltat Whs
Fulfilled 1800 Years Ago.
'Christ's aecond coming was 1800
years ago. II tnls material world
ever comes to an ena. It will not be in
the fulfillment of prophecy." declared
Rev. C. C. Rarick. pustor of Central
Methodist Episcopal Church, in lilfc
sermon yesterday rrrorninir.
In view of the thronging predictions
of the end of the world and the second
coming of Christ that have sprung up
simultaneously wmi aim
rope, Mr. Rarlrk's view presented a
somewhat new and unusual conception
of the views of the end of the world
and the rallennium which are currently
Mr Rarick contended that the 'end
of the world" predicted hy Christ and
Ills apostles and the establishment of
the milennial period In which Christ
should come asaln to reifen over the
world has already been fulfilled and
that it is vain for people to look into
the future for a miraculous fulfillment
of the prophecies.
"With some today," he said, "Christ s
coming is to be pre-mllennial : with
others it is to be post-milennial: with
others It is an event to bo looked for
soon. I differ from all of these.
"When Christ speaks of his coniln
he does not always refer to a reincar
nation or to a visible coming and It Is
not to be assumed that hla-second com
ing necessarily implies a second in
"Christ's second coming was 1800
years ago. The Jewish dispensation
then came to an end. According to
the prophecy of Daniel, his kingdom
was then set up. And it l to last
forever. , .
"The world is not made to De oe
stroyed. but to be redeemed. It Is yet
to become the kingdom of the Lord and
his anointed. This world is to grow
better and better. More and more,
from age to age, It Is to be dominated
by the living Christ through the Eter
"It is far better for us to be expend
ing our energies in the work of saving
men and training them for life here and
hereafter than to spend our time antl
thought in cherishing the delusion and
dream of the bodily presence of Christ
as a reigning king in Jerusalem. We
may ever be with the Lord if we will
but open our hearta and lives to his in
coming. Christ's presence is here, not
there The world will see him as you
and I manifest him In our individual
lives. We shall never see him per
sonally on this earth, though we should
live here 10.000 times 10,000 years; but
we shall soon be 'over there' and see
him as he Is."
