.Evangelist Offers to Give
Money Back to Those Not

CROWD IS ENTERTAINED
Portland Church Filled to Overflow-
in? to Hear" Former Baseball
j. Player Who Speaks on "Man-
hood'' for Charity's Sake.
As a vaudeville entertainer Billy
Sunday proved a popular headliner at
the First Methodist Church Wednesday
People paid 50 cents a head to hear
him and a crowd that packed the audi
torium seemed to get its money's worth.
Anyway, no one asked for the money
back. Billy invited all who were not
satisfied to step up and get their rour
bit piece. No one stepped.
"Manhood In Topic.
His lecture or sermon was deliv
ered for charity. "Manhood" was the
title of it. He got his inspiration from
Uavid's advice to youn? Solomon.
fiuoted in the book of Klntjs, "Be stron
end show thyself a man."
He used a lot of adjectives and an
abundance of suggestive bodily antics
In describing what a man is, but pave
more' words and more action to telling
what a man isn't.
"I know some lantern-Jawed, gimlet
eyed, peanut-headed, beetle-browed
piS-jowled, booze-soaked creatures that
rail themselves men. but I don t call
them men." he said by way of charac
terizins those humans whom he does
not place in his category of men.
He prefaced his more entertaining
utterances with a challenge to his ene
mies who. he said, have villified him.
Whole World In Defied.
"Xo man in America is more lied
about than I am." he began, "but
defy the dirty bunch to prove a word
of anything they are sayinpr about me."
He sailed right in then with his reg
ular lecture, parts of which he read
from prepared sheets. He took his
precedent for his generous attention to
the subject of "Manhood" from the
Bible, explaining that outside of SOO
words in Genesis all the Old Testament
Is devoted to "man."
rr "But there are men and men." he
continued. "I know a lot of things
that call themselves men that I pass
tip like a humming bird does a slaugh
' "You wouldn't call some of those
fellows men at all unless they had
whiskers and wore breeches."
v Man of Small Matnrc Landed.
Billy gave a lot of encouragement to
the men of small stature. He pointed
out all the great characters of history
who were small St. Paul, Julius
Caesar, Napoleon and some of the
Billy himself is small.
He grew particularly fond of
Kapoleon. "If I'd have Jived in
Napoleon's time." he asserted, "I'd have
followed him. sure, for he was one of
the boys who could hit the ball.
"There are a lot of men who try to
be like him. They spar well, their
wind is good, but they haven't got the
punch. You can find them on every
street corner. They sell for about a
nickel a bunch.
. "What we need is more men wno are
solid mahogany all the way through.
We have too many- veneered men.
Borne wear hats and shirts and pants,
and are men merely by brevet. But
they are no more like men than an
electric light is like the sun."
Speaker Keeps Active.
, All the -while he was speaking he
paced to and fro on the wide platform,
first pacing to and then pacing fro.
He waved his, fists wildly in the air.
rolled his eyes and thrust his protrud
ing Jaw before him.
: People who went to hear him, went
to be entertained. He succeeded in en
tertaining them. His lecture was
punctuated with frequent laushter
and repeated bursts of prolonged ap
plause. Billy seemed to know pre
cisely where the applause belonged
and invariably stopped talking at the
proper time to permit the people to
clap their hands or to burst out with
laughter as the occasion demanded.
He displayed a blissful disregard for
what orators call logical sequence In
his utterances, jumping from one line
f argument to another without warn
ing, but every time leading directly
Into an avenue of thought that would
permit him to wind up one of his
frenzied exhortations with a firm in
"Be a man."
He has developed since his last visit
to Portland a peculiar faculty, whether
unconsciously or otherwise, of conclud
ing some of his dramatic utterances
with a rising inflection of his voice.
IT to leave tne subject open to ques
tion. Sometimes he ends with a little
interrogative grunt that sounds some
thing like "Huh?"
Barld'a Combat Iircallnl.
' He never seemed to lose sight of
the fact that he was there to entertain.
He was excruciatingly funny In his
interpretation of David's combat with
- "I imagine how Dave's old man told
him to go out and look for his brothers
who were herding sheep," he explained.
"The old man told Dave that the
boys' ma was getting a little uneasy
about them, that, she had heard noth
ing of them, and that they had not
phoned her. So little Dave went with
his slingshot and his pouch where he
carried hi3 grub. When he got. out he
Kaw two hostile armies lined up against
one another. And a giant came out
dressed for battle.
' 'Who's that big stiff over there?"
asked little Dave.
" 'He's the main gazaboo around
here.' they told him, but little Dave
was a man. He wasn't afraid. He
went down to the stream, gathered up
five little pebbles, put one of them
In his sling and whirled away with
"He soaked old Goliath on the coco
between the lamps. Goliath went to
the mat, sprawled out and took the
count. Dave tc-ok his sword and
chopped off his block good night."
Andiraee In Convulsions.
Billy accompanied his explanation of
the Incident by desparate bodily ma
neuvers and timely facial contortions.
"When he reached the climax of Goli
ath's death he spread himself out at
full length on the floor and. groaned
a If in great agony. The audience
wont into convulsions.
The people doubled up with laughter
again when he paid his compliments
to the Darwinian theory.
"If you believe your ftrea t-preat-jrreat-grandfather
was a monkey. with
a prehensile tail wrapped around a
tree pitching cocoanuts at his neighbor
across the alley, you can take him and
go to the devil but don't mix me up
with that Kind or a mesa."
Another great round of applause
went ud when he drew a word picture
of the modern girl who devotes her
time to the frivolous affairs of society.
"How much a dosen would you give.
he asked, "for those blackened-eye-browed,
manicured-f ingered, gum
chewing, f izzled-beaded sissies who
can't do anything but go to the piano
and play, "Does the Spearmint Lose
Its Flavor After Darkr
"Say you." he shouted, pointing to a
young man near the front, "if you'd
kiss one of them you d die of painters
"If you want to hang your mug in
God's hall you'd better stay away from
that kind of calico."
But his lecture contained many seri
ous thoughts as well and brought fre
quent responses from the "Amen" cor
ner of the church, as, for instance.
when he said:
"To train up a boy the way he
should go, go that way yourself." or:
Every man is some boy s hero. If
every man lived right no ooy wouxa
go wrong." or again:
"Before you walk into the front door
of the saloon look at the poor rum
soaked fool staggering out the back
Whisky Barrel Dangerous.
"The whisky barrel Is more danger
ous than the gun barrel, also:
"I'd rather be a pastor of a cemetery
than of some churches in which I have

Mr. Sunday gave his services with
out cost for the benefit of the
Vancouver Avenue Norwegian-Danish

Church gave the use of the auditorium.
Many people who came to hear him
preach were not aware that an admis

John William Belcher, well-known
Portland tenor, has filed suit for
divorce from Kathleen Lawler Belcher,
soprano, who last week gave a concert
at the Heilig Theater. Estrangement,
due to Mrs. Belcher's desire to study
music in KuroDe, is given as the cause
of the suit. The simple charge of de
sertion is made in the complaint.
For many years Mr. Belcher was
director of the choir at the White
Temple Churcn. Miss Kathleen Lawler
was soprano soloist in the same choir.
Mr. Belcher also conducted a vocal
studio in the Columbia buildlntr. They
were n.arrled July 26, 190'J, and there
after joined forces In the management
of the vocal studio.
With money partly raised by giving
concerts, Airs. Belcher went to Paris
some time after her marriage to com
plete her musical education. After
passing a year there, she decided that
a six months' lontt- course was neces
sary, and. It is aii, she disagreed with
Mr. Belcher over this. After 18 months
in Paris, she returned to Portland.
Two concerts which she gave here at
that time are . said to have netted

Ordinance Restricting Purchases

Favored Before Counell.
"Vancouver is a murder factory, so
long as the unrestricted sale of flre
arms is permitted there, neutralizing
Oregon legislation. asserted John
H. Stevenson, Portland's Municipal
Judge, yesterday. In a conversation
with Judge Klwell, of Vancouver,
Wash., and obtained that jurist's
hearty indorsement to the suggestion
that a city ordinance conforming to
the Oregoa state law on the sale of
deadly weapons be introduced in Vancouver.
Judge Stevenson offered to advocate
such legislation before the Vancouver
City Council, if the members were of
mind to co-operate with the Port
land authorities in stamping out the
crime due to gun-wielders who have
bought their weapons In Vancouver.
"I believe that the only reason
nothing has been done before Is tha
the matter has not been brough
definitely before the councilmen, who
must realize that the Oregon law, so
far as Portland is concerned, is worth
less if guns may be purchased freely
at Vancouver. said Judge Stevenson
"The Tronson murder Is but one in
stance in which the commission of th
crime was due, in a measure, to th
ease with which the murderer pur
chased his weapon."
The ordinance suggested by Judge
Stevenson would permit only a perso
of authority in Vancouver to issue per

mlts would only be given out then
upon the presentation of an affidavit,
signed by two responsible persons.
