BATTLESHIP WISCONSIN ORDERED IN READINESS TO PROCEED TO PANAMA LUTHERAN SYNOD DISCUSSES SOCIALISM The Rev Katt of Terre Haute Delivers a Scholarly Argument Against It Thursday's session oC the Lutheran synod meeting at St Paul's church opened with a prayer service followed by hymns by the congregation There a full attendance of delegates The chief feature of the day's gram was the paper read by the Rev Katt of Torre Haute on the subject of This paper dealt at length on the question and was gether a comprehensive and scholarly definition of socialism as it exists In the course of his address the Rev Katt Socialism is essentially ism Socialists all have this in com- mon that they are all opposed to the individual ownership of property It their ideas of revolutionizing affairs were carried out we would have a new state and the classes be ar- rayed against each other The danger of socialism not so much therein that they seek to the ings of two poor labor but in this that they tell him to abolish and destroy the present order of things They ad- vocate little work and few hours of work more games and more ments Yet reason tells us that labor is necessary yea almost a condition of life Socialism carried out in tice would not only destroy labor but also and regard for the scriptures and the government The second paint of tho Rev argument was show that the of socialism could not be carried out Men are not equal but unequal therefore there is no greater difficulty than that ol making unequal things equal This might do if all men were exemplary Christians but they would needs be exemplary without passions or human nature claim to be better Christians than most orthodox believers They appeal to the Bible Yet thei question with them i snot whether their tion be just or right but whether it is profitable They call Jesus a great socialist and claim that the first ehurch in Jerusalem was a istic society but on looking closer we find these statements to be a great perversion of facts When Christ speaks ot the poor He does not mean those j poor in worldly goods but those poor For His gospel is for all creatures Socialists say Thine is mine Christ says Mine is thine The afternoon session was taken up report from the Rev H of Cleveland a member of tho mission commission of tho souri synod for the middle west In i general the report showed that the I

ROBBERS CAUGHT SAN FRANCISCO Aug Seymour of the local detective force has disclosed the identity of the man whom the police department has in custody on suspicion of being im- plicated in the robbery of worth ot gold bullion from the Selby Smelter works at Vallejo Junction The suspect is John Winters 37 old a former employe of the smelting company Captain Seymour also out- lined the evidence on which Winters Is being held as A man's cap which was found in the railroad tunnel last Tuesday morning has been positively identified as a head covering worn by Winters and to strengthen this fact there is the further one that the suspect has been wearing a new cap ever since of the robbery He his loss of the old one by saying that it blew away Tho cover of the tunnel excavated by tho thieves was constructed of laths upon which some cloth was tened with tacks of a peculiar pattern and tacks similar to these were found to-day In Winters cabin Portions of lath similar to those composing tho framework oC the cover have been found at the same place A pistol owned by Winters found In his cabin In covered with mild which corresponds exactly with the earth taken from the tunnel In the tunnel cubes of peculiar chalk which evidently been used to smother thB grinding sound made by the drill by which the floor of the vault hail been bored and pieces of chalk ex- like them were discovered In Winters residence In the cabin was also found a new implement designed to cut gas A small electric battery and a tiny electric bulb the latter being ered with dirt similar that in the tunnel under the vault was found in tha cabin Winters had boon seen late at night in the vicinity of the railroad tunnel six or seven times by penons who had occasion to pass that stoutly claims he knows nothing whatever about the robbery The theory upon which tho ives are now working U that tho was executed by one man only It is thought that the two bars of gold found on the edge were placed there designed for the of creating the impression that the gold had been carried away In a boat On this hypothesis a strict search is be- ing made near the vicinity ot the bery for the stolen gold
