' The controversy between Administra

Clergymen nnd church members who are
seeking wealthy and socially prominent
person? for membership In their congrega
tions in prefcirncc to "ordinary folk"
came In for a verbal lashing from "Hilly"
Sunday In the tnbernaclo this afternoon.
The evangelist declared his belief that
one-half of tho church members have
never been converted and that tho great
est need of the church was for thoso
within her to "get right with God" and
then become active In saving others for
"You make mo tired." he snooted Into
tho faces of tho multitude that crowded
tho great wooden temple, "trying to get
tho rich ducks Into the church and pass
ing up the ordinary people. You're the
biggest fool living' If yotr'sny you love
God and do not believe In Christ as Ills
Son. You must have fellowship with tho
Loid to bo born again. Onc-hnlf of tho
people In the chinches don't havo any
religious experience. I believe one-half
of them have never been conveitcd. The
first evidence of ClulHtlnnity Is the leach
ing out for tho unsaved, not for some
person with wealth nnd social Inllucncc,
but for the ordinary people who make up
the masses of the country. If you give
tho best that Is In you for God He will
glvo you more. If you don't do any
thing jou will lovo what ou have."
Tho evangelist said that ho wns led to
preach this sermon, which was on "Com
passion," because of the remark a certain
pastor made when a family of six persons
was admitted into his congregation." Tho
pastor said, "They will add numbers, but
not wealth and Influence, to my church."
THE WITHERED HAND.
Billy" compared many of tho people in
the church to tho man with the witheied
hand, and said they should follow the
examplo of that man In order to become
of service and undergo real religious ex
perience. "Suppose that ninu had wrapped his
withered hand In a napkin and never tried
to use It. Ho never would have been
privileged to do so," the cvnngellst de
clared. Then, continuing, ho said: "That's
tho trouble with tho people in tho church.
They have wrlgglo-talls In their experi
ence. They get a little religious experi
ence and then wrap It up until Sunday,
going to card parties, drinking beer, wlno
and champagne during tho week. God
doesn't care for rummage sales, oyster
suppers and tho'so things that occupy so
much of your time. Ho doesn't need
money. lie needs men and women who
aro willing to- go out nnd win every man
and woman with whom they come In con
tact for Christ.
"Ho needs men and women who have
been truly convened to do Ills work. A
mistake Is made in putting unconverted
people to work. You can seo them as
teachers In the Sunday schools, as trus
tees and In tho cholis. One-half of the
church scraps start In the choir lofts.
Lots of people sing for money, for Bhow
or for compliments. They sing for almost
anything except for the kingdom of God."

President Samuel Rea, of the Pennsyl

the stockholders of the company, urges
that the Interstate Commerce Commission
bo given greater powers through the
amendment of Federal laws and that the
commission, by specific provisions In

done, ho holds, It would encourago the

"The commission should be enlarged and
so organised as to be able to deal

That tho Interstate Commerco Commis

by President Rea.
