" Dr H. J. Talbott, who lias held th
' pastorate of the First Methodist Kpia-
copal fhurch in this city for the past
,' two and a half years, preached his last
sermon before his Portland congregation
idlest evening. Pr. Talbott leaves this
evening with his wife and daughter
i'!Mis Mary Talbott. for his new Held in
' - rtah, whore he goes as state superin
tendent of the Methodist Episcopal ml-
aions. This is an Important charge, und
teftne for whleb Dr. Talbott is eminently
fitted. The Utah state board of mit-
sions endeavored to secure Dr. Talbott
ti ns their superintendent before lie came
to Portland. His departure is greatly
regretted by hip congregation, which has
been fcrefttly augmented under Dr. Tal-
bolt's charge. In ills farewell, Mr. Tal
bott said, in part, taking his text from
' John vi:9 "There is a lad here with five
barley loaves and two small fishes, but
' what are they among the many?"
? "A sloping hill; a wide plain, upon
'.. which are hundreds of people discussing
the wonders which, they have seen, talk
ing of -the new doctrines which have
been proclaimed; filled with new, strange
thoughts recently awakened--this is the
'. nicture presented.
, "Human resources are Inadequate for,
human needs. Here are more than 5,000
weary, hungry persons with nothing pro-;
vlded against hunger; and they are In
a desert.' In reply to Jesus' question
they can only muster 6 poor, thin barley
cakes and two small -dried fishes. No
wonder Andrew, his own appetite whet
ted by fasting, 'said 'what are these
" among so many?" No wonder the dis
ciples said 'send, the multitude away
that they may buy bread.'
Thls .Inadequacy Is. painfully empha-
v;; sized when one -looks to the spiritual
betterment of .mankind. Upon the bnu
hand is this world sunken In vice, de
voured with Bin, wretchedly desolate,
bound Jn chains, driven under the task
masters of . passion. Over against It Is
the church of God,' weakened by di
visions, hindered by human frailties, im
peded by human weakness, blinded by
'. human ignorance. - Here la a city sod
den in unbelief, reeking with sin, peril
ous to the young aa a battlefield would
be, given up to pleasure and a mad race
for gold, with crime rampant and law-
. lessness but little restrained. Here on
' the other hand are the. comparatively
few Christian people, looking at the
awful task upon the one hand and the
alight resources upon the other.
"It makes a vast difference Into whose
hands anything of power or usefulness
goes. , The microscope capable of re
, veallng a world otherwise Invisible to
human eyes In the hands of science Is
only a toy less valuable than a rattle
in the hands of A child. The surgeon's
knife, designed to be a blessing in the
handstf skill, becomes--; dangerous
weapon In the hands of malice. The
; rulershlp of a nation In the hands of
f i Integrity becomes a means of blessing,
'enlargement and worthy history. But
f tn the hands of conceit and selfish ambi
tion It becomes a grief to all good peo
ple. . The Judge's bench, ' occupied by a
firm, just man, Is a bulwark to right
eousnese. But when a wavering, con
" ; sclenceless politician has wormed his
way to this throne of power, what a
menace is this!
"The pulpit, filled by' a man clear of
head, warm of heart, caring most of all
,- for his master's work, and set upon de
. liverlng his master's message, will be a
i voice against sin. But filled by a petti
. fogger, chiefly occupied with the explolta
, tion of himself and his small, and un
important theories what a travesty
upon ministerial fidelity!
- ! "Here we have the difference strongly
- marked. The spokesman of the dtscl
; pies Andrew hss taken an Inventory
of their resources and he calls' It over
-t to iesus: 'Five loaves j and two small
fishes.' Strange that the disciples have
forgotten Jesus! , But not more. strange
than that we should forget Almlghtt-
- ness, Christ says: 'Bring them to me.'
,:. With, a blessing he breaks and sends out
under the disciples' hands until every
,:: stomach is satisfied.
"How Impotent are our civil institu
tions unless, through men of integrity,
; God has laid His hand upon them! How
Inadequate are our reform measures un-
' less . the Spirit,, of Christ breathes in
.them! What are our schools, churches.
, Bibles, examples, prayers, if left In our
own hands! How useless the brightest
and most) entertaining talk , In classes,
miscslled Bible teaching; the most flu
ent words addressed to , human ears,
j miscalled praying; the most ornate and
- patronising service, miscalled worship;
the most pharlsaio living, miscalled
piety; the most ostentatious giving, mis
called charity; 'the most splendid ora
tlons, miscalled sermons how useless
. s and pitiful all these, unless Christ's
: hands have been laid In blessing upon
J them! But brought to him they become
; '- powerful in , the renovation of human
lives. Human 'resources are of little
moment, alone; 'but the power back of
i; them is everything."
' XJYB AS A BACE.
. Rev.'E.'L. House at the First Congre
gational church yesterday morning took
for his theme, "Life as a Race." In part
"Paul says this world is a racetrack.
It is ' not a grandstand, where we can
: stt down and enjoy the show. Nor is
: it a promenade, where people may pass
up and down and to see and be seen.
Nor Is it a comfortable Inn, where the
chief concern is shelter, food and sleep.
No, it is a racetrack, a place for pro-
, gression, toward an inspiring goal.
"Our age marks the supremacy of na
ture by man. He has pushed out his
steamers to distant shores, united the
nations by his wires, commanded the
lightning to illuminate his towns, em
ployed ihe sun to paint his pictures, and
drawn from the earth vegetables and
minerals to tonic his weakness and re
lieve his pain.

Realms unreached., by railways ' are
doubted. - The existence snd nearness of
it personal God are lost in the rattle of
machinery and 'cars. Surely, this is
ominous. Should It become universal,

"Paul gives- us great Incentive,' ? It
is this: 'We are compassed about with
a great cloud of witnesses,' We must
take their places and keep up the order
of the ages. Every man wlo refuses to
run the race is doing his share for the
undoing of the world. ;
"To run this race we must prepare
ourselves thoroughly,, , We Are to lay
aside every weight. Christian weights
are extremely difficult to deal with, - .The

discover what are weights to me is for j

"And there is the weight which doth

preparations have been made for suc

by the runner keeping his eyes on

A MESSAGE TO KB.
"The Vision of Responsibility That
Came to an Aristocrat Vp a Tree" was
Rev. William E.- Randall's subject last
evening at the Central Baptist church.
his text was: "This day Is salvation
come to this house."
"Zacchaeus, the man who niched un
der the cover Of law, was the last con
vert but one that the Man of Nasareth
made during his public ministry, A
man who filled iis coffers by wringing
revenue from the unfortunate. Away
down in the man's soul' there was some
thing better. Be hopeful for those that
the world calls fallen.' Charles Dick
ens wrote, 'Away tip a great many pair
of stairs," in a very remote corner, easily
passed by. there is a door, -snd on that
door is written 'woman.' Blurred - and
hidden, inan'-ls written upon many that
we tnougntiessiy pass by. -
"Doubtless the crowd jeered when the
aristocrat climbed into a tree. 'He Is
trying to get a reserved seat without
investing the price Jesus' right to 1
caiiea the--Great Commoner" is illus
trated by his relation to Zacchaeus, snd
the fraternal "message. "Make haste, and
come down; for today J. must abide at
thy house.' ,
"The genuineness of the aristocrat's
repentance was attested by his conduct:
The half of my goods I give to the
poor.' A so-called revival that falls to
make men honest' and generous, Is spu
. "Heretofore Zacchaeus' dwelling place
naa been a 'house.' Doubtless when the
master departed ' he wished blessings
upon a Tiome.' Heartaches crowd into
luxurious places. Luxury and loneliness
are not strangers. Many burdened
hearta would be glad to begin over again
in a three-room cottage, if vanished fel
lowship and love could be recalled.
Too many men try to do with re
ligion as some do with property hold it
in the wife's name! I am not blind to
the fact that for men the strain and
stress of life is Intense. Business has
become the keenest competition. The
problem of a' living Is more complex.
We have luxuries at the expense of
nerves and spirit. To successfully wsge
persistent moral battles Is a task for
heroes. "With a full recognition of life's
burdens and battles, I take the hand of
father and husband and say, 'It Is not
fair to thrust upon the wife and mother
responsibility for the religious welfare
of the home.'
"Blessings will come into the home
through a good mother's heart. What
is the sublimest picture that comes to
mortal vision? A mother with her
children about her, helping the buds to
open Godwsrd! A mother, catching the
sunshine of heaven In her soul and face
and reflecting It Into other lives! Wo
men can make a community morally
what they will to make it.
"Tell me what the homes and home
life will be during the next 60 yeara and
I will tell you how the country will end.
There are parents that put moral twists
into families. Why does on horse sell
for 11.660 and another sell for S16.60?
Blood! There is just aa much difference
in human blood. Tou can give your
child a destiny, or a damnation!"

"Sons are - urged to enter the most
lucrative professions of life," declareJ
Rev. J. Whltcomb Brougher of the First
Baptist church, tn his sermon laat night
on "How to Get Rich." The shortest
road to fortune Is the motto given
them. With this thought In mind, they
place more value upon cash than they
do upon character, and end their lives in
The minister declared that the cove
tous man was a slave to the almighty
dollar. "Jesus pronounced the selfish,
greedy, grasping millionaire a fool,"
said the speaker. "Well did he call him
one, for it takea more than money to
make a man."
Rev. Mr. Brougher asked what was
to be gained by the accumulation of
great wealth. He took his text from
Matthew xli:1S, "Take heed and be
ware of covetousness, for a man's life
conslsteth not . in the abundance of
the things which he possesseth.'"
On condition the congregation of the
Centenary Methodist Episcopal church
raises the sum of 110,000 before Jan
uary 1, 1905, the Methodist Episcopal
Church Extension society has agreed to
donate (11.165. S3, and thus clear away
the debt against the church. Rev. W. I
Holllngshead, pastor of the church,'
urged the members of his congregation
yesterday morning to strive to raise the
110,000. This will mean 11,000 per month
during the remainder of 1904. -
The pastor of the church is confident
that, the debt will be wiped out, and he
declares that within 'five years Cente
nary church will be the center of Meth
odism in Portland. The debt against
the church was, caused by litigation
over the estate of James Abraham. Mr.
Abraham . when the church was built
agreed to assume, all responsibility of
the debt, but arter his death his estate
was dissipated through litigation: The
gift from the-church extension society

It is thought probable that the trans
port Buford will complete loading her
cargo this afternoon, and leave down to
morrow. On account of the excessive
rain and high wind yesterday it was
impossible for the men to work, or she
would have been ready to leave today.
The Buford is not taking out so large
a cargo as it was at first expected she
would carry. It will not amoifint to
much more than 600,000 feet, about half
the amount Jt was estimated that she
would take upon her arrival. The ves
sel had never been loaded with lumber,
and no one had much of an idea of her
carrying capacity " for ; this ' kind Of
freight. Heretofore she had been used
exclusively as a troopship, and- the gov
ernment made no alterations in her be
fore sending her north. . For that rea
son she has not been 'properly fitted UP
for lumber carrying, and the small
available space in the hold has soon been
filled. Some of the bunks for the use
of marines "id soldiers have been re
moved during the past few days, and
a little extra space has been provided.
From here the Buford will, go direct
to San Francisco, where she is sched
uled to arrive by March 10. If no dif
ficulty Is experienced at the bar she will
arrive almost a week ahead of schedule
time. At the bay city 600 marines will
be taken aboard, and the transport will
then sail for the Philippines.

government lumber . remaining. at-Port-land
Unshipped will amount to 1.610,000
feet. It Is said at the quartermaster's
office that this can be easily taken out
by the steamship Inverness, which was
chartered by the government, last week,
In addition to the grain cargo she will
carry. Hence there has been no particu
lar inconvenience caused by the limited
shipment which will go out on the
It is announced at the united Stales
engineer's office that the bar dredge

to undergo repairs to her boilers. There
was talk of sending her to San Fran

was thought to be a waste of time to
send her so far No very extensive re
pairs are needed, it is explained, and

The Portland flreboat, George H

day afternoon, was towed from the foot
of Gibbs street to the boiler shops of
the Willamette Iron works this morn

ately. "The flreboat will now be rushed
through to completion," said W. H. Cor
bett, of the Willamette Iron works, to
day. "The boilers and the remainder of
the machinery, including the pumps,
will be placed at once."-
"How soon, will the boat be ready
for commission?" was asked.
"I presume she will be ready by the
middle of April, or possibly May 1. I
think she ought to be ready that soon,
providing no ill luck is encountered."
The launching was a complete suc
cess. The vessel is in first-class condi

IN OLD MARION
(Journal Special Service.)
Salem, Or., Feb. 29. The Republican
and Democratic county central commit
tees met In this city Saturday afternoon
and fixed the1 time for holding the pri
maries and county conventions for the
spring campaign. . '
The Retmbl can committee met in tne
city -hall at 1:30 o'clock, . with nearly
every precinct represented by the pre
cinct committeemen, and those absent
had representatives in the shape of prox
ies there. The committee at once got
down to business, and a committee on
apportionment was appointed to appor
tion the delegates. This was a difficult
matter, owing t the re-arrangement of
the precinct boundaries since the last
election, caused by the' addition to this
city of three wards, cut out of several
of the precincts lying near this city,
and the consequent re-arrangement of
the outside precincts.
A committee was also appointed to de
cide the dates for the convention and.
the primaries. This committee soon re
entered the meeting and reported, tne
report being adopted. The dates fixed
Primaries Monday, March 28.
County convention Thursday, March
SI. at 11 a. m.

them, In the majority of cases, from
1 to -p. m.; In others the time is
shorter. In those holding open primar
iesIn thfe country jre,clncts -the time
was ilxed for 2 p. in.
An effort was ' made by some of the
committeemen from some of the out
side precincts to have a longer time In
tervene between the primaries and the
convention, as it takes two days for
some of the delegates from the moun
tain precincts to reach Salem for the
convention, but this failed. This ef
fort seemed to be fathered by those
of the candidates who do not desire to
fight out the battles at the primaries,
but wish a long time to Intervene be
tween the primaries and the convention
within which to see the delegates
The apportionment committee at 3:15
o'clock brought in a report providing
for 264 delegates to the county conven
tion, and this was adopted without de
bate. This makes the largest county
convention ever held in Marlon county.

The Democratic committee, in ses
sion at the same time, decided to hold

day, April 14. The apportionment was
made on the vote cast at the last state

199 members to be held here April 14. .

HELPING BOYS TO
BECOME USEFUL MEN
This week the Y. M. C A, Inaugurates
a system of manual training which will
enable the children of the public schools
to VJo . home work. This is the first
time that anything of tbe kind has ever
been tried In this city. The Federated
Women', clubs ars also, working with
this special object in vlew.
Kvery progressive city of the United
States has excellent manual training sys
tems in their schools. Seattle for some
years past has given this instruction in
its schools. It was begun in the high
school and was gradually extended to the
higher grades,and finally industrial work
was taught in the kindergarten. San
Francisco also has an excellent system
which covers the ground very well.
W. J. Standley,, in speaking of intro
ducing the system into the Portland pub
lic schools ssys: "Some cities have
started with very small expense and
then have worked on broader lines, but if
anything Is done In Portland along this
line, I think that it should be done in a,
way that will be a oredit to the city,
because the work is no experiment. 'The
experience so far has shown that truancy
has been done away with to a considera
ble extent. Truants are a class of bova
to whom school work does not appeal.
However, this class is Interested in the
practical work of the manual training
workshop. Without manual training the
boy la not afforded to gain the practical
application of many of his arithmetical
rules. He may not be able to apply his
rules in the ordinary way, but when he
gets a chance to apply them In a prac
tical way, he soon begins to enjoy the
work. I had an example of this not long
ago. A boy was going to cut an open
ing - in a board. The dimensions were
one-half by four and one-half Inches.
He worked it out by the rules and found
the ' result to be eight and one-half
inches.' By having to demonstrate it he
understood ' where his mistake was.
"Statistics given in the past have
shown that the number attending the
manual ' training schools have passed
their regular examinations -at a much
higher percentage than those pupils re
maining the full period at their regular
"An ' experiment has been tried In
France by an Industrial school. Chil
dren of the public schools were given
the privilege of attending this school
one-half of each day and these were the
most successful pupils at the regular
school examinations. .
'Two boys, verj( warm friends, were
attending the workshop. One was bright
and studious and the other careless and
indifferent in regard to his studies. I
wish to mention hers that the system of
Instruction in the Y. M. C. A. is strictly
Individual, so that each pupil progresses
as rapidly as he is sble or wishes to do.
The bright public school pupil was ab
normally" deficient in the use of his
hands. His friend, ths dull student,
seized upon his tools and their applica
tion with avidity and in two weeks was
three months ahead of his chum. Ob
servations later, developed the fact that
the f tool work had strengthened ths
bright boy in his general physique, pre
paring him better for his studies. His
chum, discovering the practical side of
his school work, went at it with a differ
ent spirit and became interested and apt
in the common school branches." ' -
"A great misunderstanding among pa
trons of tool work consists in the fact
that they are under the, Impression that
manual training consists in an attempt
to , make, meahanlcs out of boys. ' That
in Itself is a valuable factor in the work,
but a better one, In the sight of ths
manual training teacher, is using the
tools as a medium for rounding out
