WRECKED AT SEA
Dr. II rougher Discussed Lessons to
Be Learned From Snch Disasters.
Irsssons t be learned from 1 sea
wrecks was the sermon taken last
night at the White Temple by Dr. J.
W'hltcomb Urouxher, when hs presented
the subject, "Wrecked at Bea." Tha re
cent disaster to the steamship Columbia
served to vividly present the subject to
the minds of the audience. For the text
the minister took Acts, 17:10, being in
part me DiDiicai story or Jraui s SnP
wreck. In closing his sermon Dr.
Broiis her made a atronc Dlea for rlxht
living. He aald: - - - --
'Life la a voysse upon the sea. where
some are saved and some are lost. It Is
sad to see upon the shore a vessel which
has failed to reach its destination. It
Is sad to hear of a vessel going down
out In many fathoms of water. It Is
saa pecause or tne rum it carries wun
it, but ssdder than ne vessel wrecked
upon the sea la las' wreck of a human
sou 1. . . .... ,
"No life can be Inst atone. We are
bound by ties of influence to every hu
man being that comes in touch witn us.

George W. Elder came to the rescue of
those who were struggling in the deep,
how -the loy of hope came to those who
were looking for someone to help. We
may enter Into fellowship with our fel
iowmen so as to help them in their life
struggle, or si may be ths occasion of
their ruin. . . ... .
"In life's great voyage let us build
characters on principle that they may
stand the storm and collisions of life
and finally oome under the direction of
the divine pilot safely to the harbor.
Let us build not only for our own
sakes, but for the. sake of humanity.
Let us help others to be what, they
should be. Then we shall receive wel

the rescued passengers into the Portland
harbo last week."
Uncrowned Queens of the World Are
- Foond In Kitchen, Says Ber. Hill.
- Rev. Everett M. Hill delivered an In
teresting sermon last night to a large
congregation at the Taylor-Btreet Meth
odist church on "The Toung Woman as
a Housekeeper." He used as his text
the story -from-Aha tenth chapter, of .
Luke about Martha who was bowed
down beneath the burdens of serving
while Mary sat at the feet of ChrlsUile
aid In part: ....... . ,
'The uncrowned aueene of ths world
are to be found in the kitchens of our
American hom'ea The creature comforts
that go to fill out and round out the
enjoyment of mortal existence come
mostly from the bands of the women,
God bless them. Now I know that
many of yon think that I mean that the
best way to a man's heart Is through his
stomach. -I deny that- as-a--base- slan
der. But I also affirm that if the stom
ach s made unhealthy by bad cookery
then the heart is liable to lose some of
Its Sweetness. As long as the race is as
it Is, hse Its treasure In earthen ves
sels,' there will need be those who shall
superintend the work of keeping the
vessels from breaking by repIC'Vihlng
the clay. And to such In their dltflcult
task, and to those who in any way min
ister to the needs of mankind in making
the home more homelike, this sermon is
addressed. s .
"Martita ts ths type of the careful
housekeeper. To her home was her
throne. There she reU-ned supreme.
When the guest came to her house
there wan nothing that could be done
that she was not willing to do In order
that he might be given the very best
that the house could afford. -I hare
beard much of the hospitality of the
southern -.gentleman of the old school.
I am sure that there waa and is great
hoapltvllty. But I have yet to find a
greater nospitaiity than is given by the
New .England woman of the old school."

"The apostle brings his letter to a

V ..RELIGIONS FLAYED
Evangelist Ross Delivers Sensational
' Address at Sunnysido Church. ;
B. N. Ross, a well-known evangelist,
occupied the pulpit at Bunnyslde Metho
dist cnurcn yesterday morning and our
tna- the course of one of the moet sen'
satlonal addresses ever delivered - la
Portland took occasion mercilessly to
flay the Tongues of Fire cult, secret
societies and incidentally all rellgiona
number of ministers occupied seats
en the cist form and it was aonarent
from their fervent "amens" that they
werrtieartlly in accord with, ths speak
er's remarks. s
Mr. Ross took for his text Acts
xvil tl: "And Psul stood In the midst
?f Mars hill snd said, Te men of Athens
perceive that in all things you are
too superstitious." The gifted speaker
held that there was an abundance of
religion in ths land but very little sal
vation. "Why hell has been enlarged to
accommodate the religious .people who
find quarters there. It is crowded with
religious people," said the evangelist.
"Why. all the men and women who have
gone to hell were very religious. They
were long on religion but short en sal
vation. . w ...
"Friends, there la a vast difference
between religion snd salvation. Tha
devtl does not oppose religion. He - is
s very religious person himself. I have
salvation and that Is what every man
snd woman must nave wno is savea.
Religion never saved any man."
After acorins the Toncuee of Firs and
calling attention to the fact that white
men and women are led by their ''one
eyed negro leader," Roes then pro
ceeded -to grill the secret soolaflea.
"I am not railing at the secret so
cieties,", he said. "They represent the
religion of tbe member but not their
salvation any more than does ths re
ligion of the worshippers of Idols.
"There are plenty of religious people
in this city but wnen you come to iook
for people who have salvation you find
It a bard job." The speaker pointed out
that San Francisco was the most re
ligious place on earth, but he said it
became so corrupt thst God Almighty
destroyed it. In conclusion he de
clared: "Friends, religion won't help a
man; nothing short of salvation will do
that. A relfirlous man is nothing more
than an enlightened heathen until the
Holy Ghost brings salvation to him ana
civilises aim." - v ., -
t 1 TALKED ON REFORM
Dr. Wilson Holds City Council la
"Rocking Nest of Corruption.'
Ths wicked walk on every band
when the vilest men are exalted."
These words taken from Psalms xll:,
was the text from which Dr. Clarence
True Wilson preached a powerful ser
mon at Grace Methodist church last
Dr. Wilson dwelt st length upon ths
reform movement now on in this city.
He described the many changes for the
better that Have taken place In the
past few months, but declared that the
movement had not yet reached that
"reeking nest of corruption which we
call our city council."
"When men set themselves up against
laws which, only a few ' weeks before,
they had sworn to enforce and uphold
In the letter snd spirit, (hey do so In
violation of their oaths of office," said
the speaker. " But the people are taking
notice and the next reform In Portland
la to bring to Justice thess men who
thus violated their oaths. The min
isters are arousing the people and tell
ing them they cannot be Christians snd
portess one thing at prayer-meeting snd
vote another thing on election day. May
God speed the day when every man who
names the name of Christ and enrolls
himself with the church militant shall
be an enemy of that In the city, state
or nation which degrades manhood, de
thrones womanhood and destroys little
children." . ,,-.... . , . .. .-
