Stough Tells Ministers
This Morning That
He Will Not Urge
Matter Further

To-morrow Night Br&iness and
Professional Men to Speak
A. a conference between the Rev.
Dr. Henry W. Stough and the pastors
of co-operating churches neil rhis morn
ing a; the Market Square
church, rhe evangelist told the ministers
t 'in i>e would not urge further the .nat
ter. of dos-ng t lie churches Sunday
! mornings.
"You know wtiat my desires are iu '
this matter." he said. "In so far as co
operating churches keep *opeu Sumtav
aioriiiiiL-s. to taat extent will the} crip- ,
pie tins campaign. 1 underhand, how
eve.. t nat thts matter of Sunday cio. mg
was a bone of conteuticm with you be- :
fore I came here. I shall, therefore, •
drop the question for tcie p-eseut. so far
as I am concerned personally. I leave
it to you ministers to decide the mat
te- with yourselves and with your of
ficial boards."
Dr. Stough expressed the hope that
ail would be unison in the co-operating
::i.nisteriam throughout t.iie campaign,
an promise*! tliat to the ext«it of his
:oer he would endeavor to prevent
mis.tnde r standi»{w and resultant strife.
He outlined the pian of his campaign,
explaining what he ailed his'
"strategic points. These plans were'
endorsed by many ' • aniens.
Calls Election a "Fares"
, The evangelist made a brief but very
eniphat statement regarding vester
iay s election. He told how he bad .vis
ited polling placed aid found drunken
.es?. and mentioned the names of coun
ty officials whose actions he considered
itnpropc. Then he stamped on the floor
ami said:
••Yo.t- election here in this State |
vester.lay was a disgraceful farce. Why. '
I couid have had a jackass elected Unit
ed States Senator if I had had control
of rhe political machine you have here
; in Pennsylvania."
After the evangelist gave the minis
ters an earnest heart-to-heart talk on
- e : - v»a duties ajd responsibilities iu
".he present undertaking, the matter of
, ...ingiag tiie hour for Sunday afternoon
.;i.s meetings at the tabernacle from
2.30 to 0 o'ciock was taken up. several
tv.n sters holding the opinion that the
earlier hour would conflict with after
noon Sunday school services.
It wa< explained, however, that the
preaching wilt not begin until after 3
o'clock, aud inasmuch as Dr. Stough
hud -,iowu consideration for the min
sters n not urging morning closing, it
was v'eci led that the hour he his set
r r his meetings Sunday afternoon,
2.30 o'clock, should not be changed.
Last Night's Sermon
' Despite the fact that it was election
' night, nearly T.OOO persons heard
Evangelist Stoug'a at the tabernacle
last night. Among his striking asser
tions of the evening were, that persons
who must cough in the audience should
buy cough drops, that he had seen
"judges of election so soused they
could hardly count the votes." that
Jesus Christ was not a mtnister but an
evangelist, that the Devil is one of the
most faithful church attendants, anl
wears not horns but a high silk hat,
that there isn't anv church in the coun
try big enough to hokl both the Lord
and the Devil at the same time, that it
is the duty of every pastor to make his
••hurch as attractive a« the moving pic
ture show?, that the churches are dying
of dry rot to-dav, thaw the church I
which doesn't bring souls to Jesusij
Christ should be turned into a hay shed,
and that religion has gone to seed in
a lot of churches.

Rome, No. 4. 11.05 A. M.—The
(ieatii is announced of Mario Prince

Pari*. Nov. 4, 6.55 A. M.—What
tho Belgian official communication
designated as tho '' precipitate re
treat'' of the German* before the ad
vance of the allies oit the Yser river
in Belgium was pleasing news to Par
isians to-day, even though previous
developments had given the hope that
this soon would be the case.
The significance of the move is the
chief topic of discussion. Opinions dif
fer somewhat as to the import of the
withdrawal of the Germans who, in
falling back, it was stated, suffered
considerable losses.
There is also much speculation as
to the destination of the Germans as
tho Belgian communication merely
stated that they were retreating to
wards the east. The fact that the al
lies retained in this section tho posi
tions they occupied the day before
would seem to indicate the Germans
had not been pushed very far.
General Bert haut, the military
critic, in his comment on the news, did
not regard the retreat ns a well-de-
victory for the allies. To him it
appeared more like a falling back as
the result of exhaustion and because
the Germans found it impossible to
remain longer in the inundated conn
try. He poiuted out ttiat the Belgians
similarly had been obliged to with
draw to the railroad from Dixniude
to Nienport in consequence of the in
What appeared more important to
General Berthaut was the advance
south from Dixmude. This is the part
of the Belgian front already much dis
puted. which extends from Dixmude
to the east of Ypres.
Lieut. Colonel Roussot, the critic of
the "Petit Parisien," however, view
ed the retreat from the Yser in an
other light and said it was more than
a simple check. "The retreat in fact
is partial," he wrote, "but it is none
the less significant,"
Berlin, Nov. 4, via London, 5 P. M.
—An official communication was
given out at German army hcadquar
j ters to-day as follows:
! "Our attacks on Ypres to the north
j of Arras aud to the east of Soissons,
are progressing slowlv but successful

"South of Verdun and in the

j within ten miles of Ostend but he
! does not believe that the Germans are

The Senator estimates that the Ger
