Last evening an admirable address
was deliveivd by Cornelius Kckhardt at
the Holy Trinity Lutheran church on
Adams uvenue to tho members of the
local Luther league. Mr. Kckhardt is
CORNELIl'S F.C'KHA ltDT.
a member of the staff of the Star news

known for his great services to the
Lutheran b'ague In the States. During
his address lie -ali.1:
To have and to hold tn. nihechlp In
the Lutheran church, the Church of
Christ, isto my mind an honor oftio Utile
moment. To know the Lutheran church
and her dts.-brltii.jt IhiM'otigMy Is Id
knw ih? very M.Jsencc of Chris tk'i.n My,
and to feed thtf vast membcryhip on
Mils cisenve I the constant aim of our
great church. It Is gratifying indeed
to note the great Interest manil'i'Sted
everywhere in our church and hew well
she lias In e.t bruitgll to the fiant dur
ins'the pa si few years. If 'it wvre n i't
for .the pU'i'e an l fipotless history she
has made lor 'hws. ll' this Interest
would die out. Her doctrines have
sto.j',1 the test these centutles an l re
main unch.inge.l. Th" Lutheran chu ell
will bt ir the cluswl investigation. This
is wh it we wa.nil and this is what we
have been ge'iig through w.lth for the
past ffW yeai'S and! that Is why .the in
terest is ever ell the llK-rcase.
If these Is any one thing an em
ployer Hpprc.-Htes more than another,
It is the uninterrupted attention to
buy! !.?. 5l.!itl intonst In his bit -dues
on the part of his .employes. Where
j'ltch a state of affairs exist, good ro

will all. no doubt, uvee with me. Why,
then, cannot this be a.pplied to the re

Just the thing to i!(h.u all of us, all

some trilling 1m ppcnintf, t ha t is not worth
a moment's coii-ide: jtion, und what
does all this lead to? A general dis
satisfaction; an 1 why'.' do you ask. Hc-cau.-ii
Mr. Hr.r.vu has a liitle grievance
and at the llrrft opportunity must go to
Mr. Jones, relate it and in turn h.-ar
one from him: th. n comes Mr. Smith
with another, and so on until the entire
membership has but cue object in com

one. Tills lis Jay activity, but, my
friends, tile wrong kind. Turn a de if

A (iood Choir Appreciated.
Having just spoken of the clmlr and
l.ft 1 should be inlsHini'derstood In that
dircclloti, 1 want to say ithat J appre
ciate the b rvlros of n good choir. I
was once a tucnih'eir of a choir myself,
and nolturtiMy (have a, kindly felling
toward them, but I do not bnlleve that
we .should be f'ltlsfled to let the choir
do all of the singing, i'.y .the older of

there is an abundance of time tillotied
tht in for yperlal winging, so that we
should not feel as though we were nn
croachlng m tin Ir rights when we take
part and hotp tli"m otrt. A return to
the times of Lulher Is iKrcwary and

In passing I want to say a few words
on the oyster supper and Ice cream fes
tival craze for raising money. This d
cldedly iinscrlptural and In many ways
(lestional)le manner of raising money
for church work should not claim n
moment of our time. The church Is not
a kitchen or an Ice cream saloon, but
a place set iipart and dedicated for the
worship of Almighty (tod, ami ns mioli
should be used and for no other pur
poses. Ab a good Lutheran friend of
mine, prominent in the church and In
public iifTalrs, the Hon. M. D. Hurler,
a representative from Ohio, In ft recent
address delivered In lialtlmore, well
said: "You would not come Into my
house and expect to- find the refrigera
tor In the parlor and the piano In the
cellar." Most certainly not, and yet
with tho chtiroh constantly advocated
bv some people for the holding of such
affairs will, In the course of time, give
rise to many a doubt ns to whether
this or that structure net apart for the
worship of God Is In reality a church
or an lee cream saloon or an oyster
They Dlsgmec the Church,
ltlsadlsgraceonus as members of the
church of Christ, and it makes no dif
ference w hether it is held in the church
or in some other place, so long as it is
held or given in the name of the church,
the evil still exists, although in not
quite so bad it form as when held In
the church. As tills great evil Is iil
most entirely in the control of the laity,
let us rise up und Fay No! these tilings
cannot be. (live as commanded by the
Sacred Word and do not draw forth
a clngle penny by an appeal to the appe
tite. Remember, "It !h more blessed to
give than to receive," and bear In mind
that when you pay -5 cents for an
oyster supper and receive full
value for your money you are
not supporting the gospel In the
proper manner. Then again they
are trouble breeders of the worst
kind, und the sooner we git rid of all
the better. I know the ladles will wel
come the day when these things are
no more, tlive, give freely, according to
your ability, only give.
To my mind uuotlier very serious
drawback to the work of our church
Is this continual prutter of the ex
tremely liberal clement In our church
for in tcr-denoiiiina llonal work, so-called,
und who bee! grieved to think that
very hiuny of our best and ablest min
isters will not unite with them In tills
work, und who refuse to lock arms
with every new comer In ids efforts to
spread the gospel. It has often been u
matter of great surprise to me that
.hese extremists never seem to realize
that to be so ready and willing to have
others do the work Is demonstrating
the fact ideally that they are not equal
to the work. It Is certainly a tacit ad
mission on their part of their Inability.
The great majority of our Lutheran
ministers, 1 am glad to say, are op
posed to such things, and in this they
need ' our hearty co-operation und
should . have It. Your place and my
place Is at the church to which we be
lon;.T, and If we do our duty there, we'll
never have time to think of going out
side, ami an long as we are members
of a church the membership or wnien
fur exceeds Unit of any other Protest
unt denomination in the world today,
and whose teachings ure so firmly
planted on the word of Cod, why look
for anything else to do.
Plenty of Work to Do.
There is any amount of work for us
to do all the time; the causes of home
missions und church extension alone
are now demanding more time and at
tention than we give to them and it
Keems to me, that ill so noble a cause,
we should (ill the more glory In our
own work and constantly push it for
This address would be Incomplete
should 1 not refer to the Sunday school
and societies connected with the church.
Without a doubt the most Important
of these Is the Sunday school. As lay
men we cannot give the pastor and
supoi lntendent too much support in
this line of the work. Mere tin- cnu
dren are moulded for life, and as they
eventually become the members of the
church, they should in addition to the
regular lesson be instructed thoroughly
In tin; use of a service. ..) nunuuy

forms has had its day. and those most
bitterly opposed to forms as laid down
bv the" church ure usually the greatest
sticklers for foi nis of their own, which
are at times narrow in the extreme. 11
docs not make anv diflerence whether
the pastor, church council, teacher and
o Ulcer of the school have decided opin
ions on these questions or not. The
very fact that they do agree and unite
in the adoption ot an order oi service
makes said order of service, no matter
how scriptural or simple, ritualism.

COAL ROYALTIES DISPUTE.
Mrs. Cathcrhio Winton Iirinus Suit
Kccovcr $1 A.:i()7.0'J.
A law suit involving a big sum of
money for coal royalties was Instituted
In court Saturday by Mrs. Catherln
Winton through her son, Attorney A.
II. Winton, against Coal Operator (). S.
Johnson. It arises from a dispute ns to
the amount to be paid. Between Mrs,
Winton's claim and Mr. Johnson's
stati ment tin re Is a difference of $1,(1,
ilto.OL', and that is the amount sued for
On Sept. 20, ISSi, Mrs. Winton leased
twenty acres and 152 perches uf coal
land In Green Ridge to L. A. Watres,
K. N. Willurd and O. R. Johnson, for
the sum of $1,000 annually. This amount
was payable in monthly instalments.
Again on Aug. 12, lss.'i. Mrs. Winton
leased to O. S. Johnson, Individually,
nil the. balance of the land in the same
tract, and the provisions of this lease
were that Mr. Johnson should pay u
royalty on 1.1,000 tons of coal, whether
that amount was mined or not. An ad
ditional provision was made in the
lease subsequently, whereby Mr. John-
Bon agreed to pay $C..r.00 annually while
operating under the two leases, because
then It was stated in the lease that
the Interests or 10. N. Wlllard nnd L. A
Watres hud been assigned to Mr. Joint'
son. Mrs. Winton ullegcs that under
tills lease she Is entitled to $:i2.r.00, whlcli
Is the total for live years at the rate
of Jti.MO annually.
On Jan. 12 of this year Mrs. Winton
received, says she received, u statement
from Mr. Johnson showing a balance In
her favor of $IO,i:i2.0S. On the strength
of this statement the suit Is brought.
