CRITICISMS OP "TEN VIRGINS" RE
VIEWED BT nil. BCLGIN. ,
Christian Character Declared Main Line
to Heaven Temperance Lecture
" Set for Tonight.
Evangelist Bulgin spoke 'on "The
Parable of the Ten Virgins" last night
in the tabernacle on the East Side.
There was a large audience. Professor
Rose conducted an interesting service
of songs by the large choir. Dr. Bul
gin said that the "Parable of the Ten
Virgins" had been the object of more
destructive criticism than almost any
parable in the Bible. It had been, he
said, the target for many a hot shot.
"These girls all slumbered, said the
evangelist, "and slept, and Russell in
Mmenlal Dawn' deviltry tells us to
come yet out from among them, for
all the church is asleep and going to
hell. Do these girls represent the
church? Yes. but the five wise slept,
as well as the foolish, and so there
could have been no sin in taking a
nap, else these five wise ones were
foolish, too. Jt is no sin for me to go
to sleep tonight after preaching the
gospel, but It's a sin for you to go to
sleep for one minute unprepared to
Gsa this parable teaches
human selfishness. Why did not the
wise virgins divide their oil 'ne
foolish in their hour of need? Be
cause the oil represents something that
cannot be divided. Ingersoll said.
Vhat outlandieh fools those girls were
who had no oil. What a clumsy story
The vessel In which oil was carried was
an open one, and they were on a Jour
ney requiring oil and should , have
known that they had no oil That is
what Christ said about them. They
were fools, but no bigger fools than
Tome church members. The o. rep
?eents you and me for the coming of
the Savior. Downright Christian char
acter is the main line to heaven u for
without holiness no man can see God.
Dr. Bulgin will deliver his lecture
on "Temperance" tonight.

VIADUCT PLAN IS OPPOSED
Property Owners Protest Against
Proposed Holgate Structure.
First opposition to the proposed con
struction of a viaduct over the South

Holgate street appeared yesteraay in
the form of a remonstrance signed by
the owners of 17 per cent of the prop
erty affected by the proposed change

strance will go-before the City Council
at its next meeting.
The opposition is based on the propo
