Saturday, May 30, 1908. FIRST CLASS MUSIC AT CHURCH CONCERT FREE ENTERTAINMENT PROVES AN ARTISTIC SUCCESS. Reasons for Not Charging Admission to Any Christian Church Affair Plainly Given by Dr. Shepherd — What He Hopes to do With the Building Fund. ' An excellent concert was given last Wednesday night in the Holt Opera House for the benefit of the building fund of the Christian Church. No ad mtadon fee was charged, but a mib xtantial sum was added to the fund by voluntary contributions from the audience. Dr. Shepherd explained his reasons for objecting to a charge for admission to any entertainment connected with the work of the church, and he made them very plain. The church, ho said, should give freely to the social life of the community, and not enact the role of an organized beggar. It should do nothing that He whom it serves would not have done. "Can you ima gine," he asked, "Jesus! giving an en tertainment for his own benefit and pending oat Peter and John to . sell tickets?" ...

Skinner Described as Social Outcast and as Hero Who "Fit" and Bled— Retorts That Opponents are Slimy Fish—Big Cry and Little Wool In Land Fraud Sensation. A few weeks ngo the I^os Angeles papers were throwing yellow typo graphical fits over "stupendous land frauds in Imperial Vailoy," and pre dicting the Indictment of two or three brigades of "prominent citizens*' hy the Federal grand jury then tn session.

Tho grand jury was to have made Its 'report week before last, but not .a word about the nature of its report has been said by the able, alert...
