teacher and many years ago Superintendent of the county He does not like the new school law and intimates that its adoption is a step toward mixed schools The law is objectionable that is some features of it but there is nothing in it to lead a person to believe that we will have mixed schools it is a fact that the present law does not provide for colored children though the colored people are taxed for school purposes For that reason we believe the law will be declared unconstitutional The dwelling house and nearly all its contents the home of Mr Austin Loy in the Fairplay country were

expenditure of large sums of mon ey In the meantime projects increase for the erection of memorials in honor of heroes and statesmen One of the subjects that will be brought before congress early in the next session will be a proposition to provide a suitable tame of George Washington for the east front of the capitol in view of the removal from the plaza to the Smith Ionian institution of the much ridi culed Greenough statue representing the Father of His Country in the scant and unnatural attire of a Roman sen ator Representative McCall of Massa chusetts chairman of the house com mittee on the library introduced in the last congress a bill providing for a replica of the J Q A Ward statue of Washington which stands in front of the subtreasury building in Wall street New York and isone of the best sculptural portrayals of the first presi dent in existence He proposes to place this replica on the staircase on the east front of the capitol so that presidents in delivering their inau gural addresses will stand at the feet of the great man who first sat in the presidential chair Some members of the senate and house take the view however that the country cotild afford to provide a new statue instead of a replica for this important place Those who advance this idea hold that Presi dent Washington should be represented in such a statue as delivering his Inaugural address With the removal of the Greenough statue there will be no effigy of Washington in the immedi EQUESTRIAN STATUE Olf WASHINGTON ON PENNSYLVANIA AVKNUE WASHINGTON ate vicinity of the capitol except a plaster replica of Houdons work which stands in statuary hall the orig inal being at Richmond On Pennsyl vania avenue there is an equestrian statue of Washington as general in command of the Continental army It is the work of Clark Mills The nations capital would be rich in monuments if half the bills introduced for their erection were to be passed Mr Sulzer of New York proposed in the last congress an expenditure of 50000 for a bronze statue of Samuel J Tilden Democratic candidate for the presidency in 1876 Representative Chaney of Indiana thinks that there should be a statue of Pocahontas and has offered a bill to provide it There Is a national association for the pur pose of erecting a suitable monument to Alexander Hamilton The officers and members of this association are trying to raise the necessary money by private subscription evidently having despaired of ever inducing congress to act In the matter Scores of the most prominent men in America belong to this association President Roosevelt has given the movement his in dorsement having written that il is a shame that no monument has ever been erected to the memory of Hamil ton There is no statue or monument of General Grant in Washington but it is proposed to have a statue as soon as the dispute can be settled as to whether some historic trees shall be felled in the botanic gardens of the government to make room for it There are two so called monuments of Presi dent Lincoln in Washington The first is in front of the building used by the courts of the District of Columbia It was erected shortly after the civil war by negroes Itlsa poor excuse for a monument but It was the best the recently emancipated slaves could do The other is In Lincoln park on Cap itol hill A statue of the great Polish patriot Kosciusko Is to be located in Lafay ette park The model of the monument as a whole represents Kosciusko as a hero of both hemispheres as he Is usually called by thePolesAtthe front of the pedestal laR hemisphere

Jesse Coe who was killed by Sheriff J E Bryant of Monroe county Ky and his body brought to this city for idenification and reward was a party to the killing of Coe and had received 600 of the 1500 reward the negroes on the West Side became very much excited and on several occasions the police were compelled to employ threats to prevent trouble in the crowds that gathered about the morgue where Coes body lay The excitement increased when Coes sister called and identified the body and asked the privilege of giving it burial In the crowds of negroes that gathered on the streets and dis cussed the killing of Coe and the events leading to it there were many angry expressions against Andrews and not a few covert threats and suggestions that he ought to be killed The police thought Andrews discreet enough to keep out of the way of trouble but late in the evening he went to visit a relative at Nora street and Senate avenue right in the heart of the negro settlements His presence in the house be came known immediately and negros began to gather from all directions Andrews was a prisoner in the house for a few moments and the mob was on the point of forcing the doors when Patrolman Morgan arrived on the scene So excited Vas the mob that he could do nothing with its members and he tele phoned for help Two other patrolmen reached the scene in time to prevent an assault on the house and Andrews was taken to the police station for protection The followa edat a short distance breathing vengeance but other arrivals of officers saved Andrews from the vengeance of his race The negroes say he cannot re main in this city and if they find him outside the protection of the police they will kill him They do not seem so much to resent the killing of Coe as they do the fact that Andrews got money for his part in it Andrews accompanied Sheriff J E Bryant and his deputy Granger Conkin to Indianapolis with the body of Coe The party arrived shortly after 11 oclock last night and more than 1 000 persons were waiting at police headquarters to see the body The body of the dead negro was positively identified by several persons who had been summoned to the police depart ment The body of the murderer in a coffin was seen by thous ands of people today They passed at the rate of ninety a minute for several hours begin ningat 8 oclock this morning At noon it was estimated that

County Committee and other friends Republicans as well as Democrats Mr Patter sons close kinship to a well known family allied to the minor ity section of the Republican party is by some of his friends expected to win him votes But the main reliance of the candi date is confessedly on his own merits andenergy He declares that he will visit every county in the District that he is ready to meet Mr Edwards on the stump at anytime or place He indorses the Denver platform and the candi dacy of William Jennings Bryan lie favors tha improvement of the Cumberland River and the development of the District gen erally While in favor of the utmost economy in Government alexpenses he urges liberality theiIjwidowspronouncces against machine politics in both parties and invited all opposed to machine methods no matterI what their affiliation to support hinj He will later on announce the time and place of hiscamI hisfng g Local Democrats proclaim Mr Patterson an ideal candiate andare enthusiastically fer him For a man on the side of the political fence he isI we cheerfully admit a very good fellow personally Lindsay For Bryan At an enthusiastic meeting of Democrats at Frankfort August 29th former United States Sena tor William Lindsay who op posed Bryan in both of his former races came out stromgly forI him and the Democratic ticket in a powerful address Senator Lindsay vigorously scored the president for attempting to dictate the appointment of his successor declaring that it was the height of indelicacy on the part of the President He commended the Democrat ic party for the prominence given to demands for tariff revision in its platform and urged that the Democracy strongly op pose all trend toward centralize tiin of power in the Federal Government which he declared to be the fundamental fault o f the Republican party Allowing Railroads To Obey The Law If the government is going to run the railroads of the bounty lit must run them on business principles or accept the respon bandruptcyIruin This has come to be pretty well understood at last in govern ment as well as railroad circles An illustration of it is the general recognition of the nec essity of bringing the Sherman antitrust law and the laws fo special and direct regulation o railroads into harmony Thais necessary merely to allow the railroads to obey the law As it stands now they violate the law against combination if they uni formly obey the law regulation rates If they obey the Sherman law by keeping out of combination some of them fall inevitably into violation of some of the various laws regulating rates theImous and so complicated that it is simply impossible for railroads to obey the laws regulating sep arate ly and independently They can do so only by combination of competing as well as connecting lines and the establishment of joint and uniform rates for cer tain fields of traffic This combination to make joint and uniform rates was held by the courts to be violation of the Sherman antitrust act some ten years ago That ruling never has been changed though every possible effort has been made to soften it Now it is recognized that the thing to do is to change the Sheman law itself The subject comes up freshly- in the Souther states where the railroans are suffering most from loss of earnings and financial weakness and where the state commissions seemed de termined so enforce the lettepof both the rate law and the anti trust law Examination of conditions in Texas and in the territory of the Southern Railway have com pletely convinced the interstate commission that the only salvation of the railroads is the power to make joint rates under super vision A strong effort will be made to give them this power at the next seseion of Congress

while going through a strip of woods the officers came upon Coe in com pany with a negro named Claud Anders They were squirrel hunting and when first seen Coe was in the act of shooting a squirrel Coe had a Winchester rifle at his shoulder pointing at the top of a tree The snapping of a twig attracted his attentio- and he turned and faced the deputiesf tbut instead was bringing his gun on a level with the Sheriff when one of the deputies and the Sheriff fired almost simultaneously and the negro fell dying in stantlyNo case in recent years has attracted such widespread atten tion as did the killing of the Indianapolis officers by Coe A negro George Williams a rela tive of Coe and who was with him at the time was arrested tried and hanged for killing Pat rolman Fetticord at the same time A large reward was offere ed for Coe but he managed to get back to his nome on Pea Ridge where his parents and relatives live The Coe negroes some twenty in mumber have been a terror to that section for years They have been mixed up in a dozen killings and have gone free with a few exceptions no one daring to arrest them The reward of 1500 has been a great temptation and many detectives have tried to capture the fugitive SHERIFF BIDED HIS TIME Sheriff Bryant has believed all along that Coe was hiding on Pea Ridge and that his capture was only a question of time Many believe that Jess Coe had never returned and those who knew the Coes best asserted that he would never be taken alive For Bryan J Sherman Porter managing editor of the Lexington Herald and formerly the deitor of an Ohio

formation of future machines in the State He says that no man however able he may tie to fill any office need aspire to office in the Buck eye State unless he has the necessary scads to put up a boodle campaign and unless he stands in with the machine Taft which succeeded the oldt ForakerDick gang in control of political matters in the State He believes that the only thing that will bring

the woman She has been mar ried fourteen times within the fifnty years of life This is believed to be the record from the time when marriages were keptat least in this j county On the subject of howrto manage a husband Mrs Townsend says Although I lost so many husbands it is no fault if of mine I was a good wife to each of them I guess its a matter of luck I know how to manage husband You mustnt love him too much That is not for your own good And it is not good for him It spoils him Youshould conceal some of your affections so that you may keep him in hopes of winning more You mustnt let him know that youre managing him That will never do If he has any obstinacy and most men have a good deal he will fight Youve goffto lead him Some of my bands were very obstinate But I generally managed to get them to do what I wanted them to do Of course I couldnt make them faithful and I couldnt give them good dispositions if they didnt have them You can change a man somewhat but you would be a fool to think you could make him over Ive had too much experience to believe that I tell you a woman must have a good deal of hope in hereto marry a man at all I guess Im of a hopeful disposition Im not mean I dont think Im selfish But I know my rights There are some things I cant stand I just had the hard luck to get men who didnt appreciate me Affection isnt all a manfwants Some of them just want a servant Even a woman who is married to a goodman will find that the best of them are selfish I suppose women are too in certain ways Maybe its matter of luck whether married Ia can get along

yet t living I go to see him once a year ifI possible and greatly enjoy meeting with him because he has al ways been my friend and be cause he and I are the only per sons now living who attended that school so far as we know When I went to the free schools any one who could read write and cipher was qualified to teach school I remember when I was going to school I was very anxious tbecome a teacher and inIformationschools and had gone some to higher schools I got the promise of a school down on Caseys Fork of Marrowbone and I went to our Commissioner Mr Nat Gai ther a young lawyer in Columbia to get a certificate I went into his office and sat down and after awhile I gathered up courage enough to ell him I had come to get a certificate to teach school in the country Well said he Matthew what do you know I told him I could read a littler write a little and cipher a little He then pushed writing paper j en and ink to the end of the table where I was and told me to write my name I did so the best I could He asked no fur ther question but took the paper looked at my name and then picked his pen and wrote some thing like this I have this day examined Matthew Taylor touch ing his qualifications to teach in the common schools of Adair county and find him qualified to read a little write a little and cipher a little Given under my hand etc Then I took it and stepped down an1out with the pomposity of a Vanderbilt arm I ed and equipped as the law direct ed I then went to my school and commenced teaching and followed teaching for fifteen or twenty years I found a firm consistent course the best to apply in the schoolroom among pupils They all need our sympathy and re spect and it must be bestowed as much as possible without partiality The fact is I meet up with some of my Pupils oc r casion ally whom I have forgotten as pupils and the very moment Iam reminded of it they feel nearer anddearer to me because f J feel that I may in some way fbe responsible for their desti llY I would advise all teachers in addition to obtaining sufficient qualifications to cultivate a spirit of kindness not only with your pupils but with all withwhom they come in contact for all have their influence in some way at f some time and consequently t slightest neglect on the part o cientilr ly kind disposition may deprive it them of a school wljen least ex- pected1i v During the last few years the ifree schools Jiave J ecn extended Ii1f 4afcix insteadof three monthsse tscI t b year as they were former ely teacherdhas been advanced to such an extent that all parents can if they will give their children a better education at home in the common schopls than those of my age were able to obtain un der the most favorable circumstances and yet we know from different causes that a large majority of the rising g nera tion will never receive more than a slight knowledge of the branches now required to be taught in our common school- sNotwithstanding this is true under the late law all males over twentyone years of age are taxed to build up one or two public high schools in each county of the State and I suppose we will have to build two one for white and one for colored students when we know not one fourth of either the white or colored race will ever be able to avail themselves of the benefits of either In my judgment if the late law is en forced and carried out it willre suIt in taxing a large majority for the benefit ofa very small minority and in building up by taxation a pauper educational ar ristocracy which will have for its aim the encouragement of a system of taxation for the employment of a class of professors who are otherwise a burden to society and thereby create a prejudice against them in the minds of those who pay taxes to keep them employed but are not in condition to avail themselves of the benefits if any to be de rivedKnowing as I do the advanced qualification of teachers of the present day over my own and those of a few years ago I was sorry to see that the teachers of our county in County Institute as sembled had endorsed a law calculated to bring about such conditions as above named andalso t o compell the colored race against its will to vote with the white race i n electing school trustees and forcing the whiteI trustee to enroll the colored children and make report of same to the School Commis sioner against his will Any law that taxes the people to buildup institutions from which they re ceive none of the benefits is equivalent o taxation without representationI Legislature had y passed a law giving the people of each county the right to tax themselves to buildup public high schools without making it compulsory and without compell ing a nearer association with the white and colored races an the affairs of public education that the friends of advanced educa tion could have aroused in the minds of farmers and laboring people of all classes a substan cial interest in the advancement of education in the rural districts throughout the State and that the cause would have continued to grow But under existing circumstances it appears that the enforcement of existing law can only have a tendency on one hand to bring about a closer association with the white and col tofhand to create ar prejudice in the mindof all classes against the law that enforces such conditions and the institution its claims to uphold and thereby clog tiewheels of progress and suppress all hope of immediate dywice ment ffY 2 f t It Builds Force 21 ShortStops Women with small feet all like the short

original condition The sculptor who is to do the work is in Frankfort looking at pictures of Boone and studying the history of scenes and incidents in the life of the Kentucky pioneer It will be several months be fore the work is finished and the monument restored but when the sculptor gets through it is expected that the Boone monu ment will be as it was many years ago The Legislature of 1906 appro priated 2000 for the restora tion of the monument but this has never been used On each side of the monument was depicted in marble an act in the life of Boone One side showed the pioneer killing an In dian and another showed him and a bear fighting A third side depicted Boones wife milk ing a cow while the fourth side showed him sitting under his own vine and fig tree All these have been ruined by the souvenir collector and the monument is now stripped of almost everY- thing that would show to whom it was erected Clock Ticks Inside Fish Recently George Harris late Assistant Warfmaster caught a catfish that weighed only forty five pounds but upon dressing it found a clock in its maw says the Carrollton News Of course the catfishs mouth was large enough to have swallowed the clock but why it should have kept running as it was ticking when the fish was caught is beyond conception as we learn that the timepiece was dropped over boardfrom the steamer Helen M Gould by one of Purser Shirley Bradley cabin boys three days The only explanation be1ingof electricity known that the fish supplied the electricity from its body and conducted by the cur i ofttheof the timepiece T

Prnicef of Peace Famous Lecture Delivered by William Jennings Bryan at Numerous Chautauquas and Y M C sand at Tokyo Manila Bombay Cairo Jerusalem j I offer no apology for speaking upon a religious theme for it is tIle most universal of all themes If I addressed you upon the subject of law I might Interest the lawyers If I discussed the science of medicine I might Interest the physicians In like manner merchants might be Interested in a talk on commerce and farmers in a discussion of agriculture But none of these subjects appeals to all Even the science of government though broader than any profession or occupation does not embrace the whole sum of life and those who think upon it differ CO among themselves that I could not peak upon the subject so as to please a part without offending others While to me the science of government is in tensely absorbing I recognize that the most important things in life lie out side of the realm of government and that more depends upon what the individual does for himself than upon What the government does or can do for him Men can be miserable under the best government and they can be happy under the worst government Government affects but a part of the life which we live here and does not touch at all the life beyond while rell gion touches the infinite circle of ex istence as well as the small arc of that circle which we spend on earth No greater theme therefore can engage our attentionIMan is a religious being The heart Instinctively seeks for a God Man is essentially devout There are honest doubters whose sincerity we recognize and respect but occasionally I find young men who think it smart to be skeptical They talk as if It were an evidence of larger intelligence to scoff at creeds and refuse to connect themselves with churches They call themselves lib eralas if a Christian were narrow- minded To these young men I desire ta address myself Religion the Basis of Morality Even some older people profess to regard religion as a superstition par donable in the ignorant but unworthy of the educated a mental state which one can and should outgrow Those who hold this view look down with mndcpntemptJupon such as give to religion a definite place in their- thoughts and lives They assume an intellectual superiority and often take little pains tO conceal the assumption- Religion has been defined as the re lation which man fixes between himI self and his God and morality as the outward manifestation of this relation Every one by the time he reaches ma turity has fixed some relation between himself and God and no material change in this relation can take place without a revolution in the man for this relation is the most potent influ ence that acts upon a human life Religion Is the basis pf morality in the Individual and in the group of in dividuals Materialists have attempted to build up a system of morality upon the basis of enlightened self Interest They would have man figure out by mathematics that it pays him to abstain from wrongdoing they would even inject an element of selfishness Into altruism But the moral system elaborated by the materialists has sev eral defects First its virtues are borrowed from moral systems based upon f religion Second as it rests upon argu ment rather than upon authority it does not appeal to the young and by the time the young are able to follow their reason they have already become set in their ways Our laws do not permit a young man to dispose of real i estate until he is twentyone Why this restraint Because his reason is Tnot mature And yet a mans life is largely molded by the environment of his youth Third one never knows Just how much of his decision Is due- to reason and how much is due to passion or to selfish interest We rec ogulze the bias of self interest when we exclude from the jury every man r 110 matter how reasonable or upright j he may be who has a pecuniary inter est In the result of the trial And fourth one

In the young mans life It Is i whenhels just come into possession- lthis powers when he feels stronger thin he ever feels afterward and tthlnks he knows more than he ever ioes know l 5I lib 1lJitffY J4 Iwas at this period that 1 was con the different theories of crea tionBut I examined these theories and found that jilcyall a sum d some tllinpto begin with The nebular hy potliesis for instance assumes that maJteIlnIing on matter according to this hypothesis creates a universe Well I have a right to assume and I prefer to assume a Designer back of the de sign a Creator back of creation and no matter how long you draw out the process of creation so long as God stands back of it you cannot shake my faith in Jehovah In Genesis it is written that in the beginning GoQ created the heavens and the earth and I can stand on that proposition until I find some theory of creation that goes further bask than the beginning- I do not carry the doctrine of evo lution as far as some do I have not yet been able to convince myself that man is a lineal descendant of the low eranimals I do not mean to find fault with you if you want to accept it All I mean to say is that while you may trace your ancestry back to the mon key if you find pleasure or pride In do Ing so you shall not connect me with your family tree without more evi dence than has yet been produced It Is true that man in some physical qualities resembles the beast but man has a mind as well as a body and a foul as well as a mind The mind is greater than the body and the soul is greater than the mind and I object to having mans pedigree traced on one third of him only and that the lowest third One does not escape from mystery however by accepting this theory for It does not explain the origin of life When the follower of Darwin has traced the germ of life back to the lowest form In which It appears and to follow him one must exercise more faith than religion calls for he finds that scientists differ Some believe that the first germ of life came from another planet and others hold that It was the result of spontaneous generation If I were compelled to accept one of these theories I would prefer the first for If we can chase the germ of life off this planet and get it out Into space we can guess the rest of the way and no one can contradict us but If we ac cept the doctrine of spontaneous gen eration Ve cannot explain why sponta neous generation ceased to act after the first germ was created G6 back as far as we may we can not escape from the creative act and it is just as easy for me to believe that God created man as he is as to believe that millions of years ago he created a germ of life and endowed it with power to develop into all that we see today But I object to the Darwinian theory until more conclusive proof is produced because I fear we shall lose the consciousness of Gods presence In our daily life if we must assume that through all the ages no spiritual force has touched the life of man or shaped the destiny of nations But there Isi another objection The Darwinian theory represents man as reaching his present perfection by the operation of the law of hatethe merciless law by which the strong crowd out ana kin off the weak If this is the law of our development then if there is any logic that can bind the human mind we shall turn backward toward the beast In proportion as we substitute the law of love How can hatred be the law of development when nations have advanced in proportion as they have de parted from that law and adopted the law of love But while I do not accept the Dar winian theory I shall not quarrel with you about it I refer to it only to remind you that it does not solve the mystery of life or explain human prog ress I fear that some have accepted It In the hope of escaping from the miracle but why should the miracle frighten us It bothered me once and I am inclined to think that It is one of the test questions with the Christian Why Shouldnt Miracles Be Performed Christ cannot be separated from tie miraculous His birth his ministra tions and his resurrection all involve the miraculous and the change which his religion works In the human heart is a continuing miracle Eliminate the miracles and Christ becomes merely a human being and his gospel Is stripped of divine authority The miracle raises two questions Can God perform a miracle and Would he wantto The first is easy to answer A God who can make a world can do anything he wants to do with it The power to perform mlra des Is necessarily Implied in the powI er to create But would God want to qUetljtionble The more I have considered It the less inclined I am to answer in the negative To say that God would not perform a miracle is to assume a more intimate knowledge of Gods plans and purposes than I can claim to have I will not deny that God does perform a miracle or may perform one merely because I do not know how or why he does it The fact that we are constant ly learning of the existence of new forces suggests the possibility that God may operate through forces yet j ealevQrydayarJiI1I Wlid would have credited a century ago the stories that are now told of

the things with ZJ yi i J p f j t ilf t 4 tt LLt which man now deals tis simply different It is sometimes said that God could not suspend ono of his laws without stopping the universe but do we not suspend overcome the law of grav itatiou every day Every time we mpve a foot or lift a weight we temporarily interfere with the operation lawsIandScience has taught us so many things that we are tempted to conclude that we know everything but there is really a great unknown which- is still unexplored and that which we have learned ought to Increase our reverence rather than our egotism Science has disclosed some of the machinery of the universe but science has not yet revealed to us the great secretthe secret of life It is to be found in every blade of grass in every Insect in every bIrd and in every ani mal as well as in man Six thousand years of recorded history and yet we know no more about the secret of life than they knew in the beginning We live we plan we have our hopes our fears and yet Ina moment a change may come over any one of us and this body will become a mass of lifeless clay What is it that having we live and having not we are as the clod We know not and yet the progress of the race and the civilization which we now behold are the work of men and women who have not solved the mystery of their own lives And our food must we understand It before we eat it If we refused to eat anything until we could under stand the mystery of its growth we mysteryIan I was eating a piece of watermelon some months ago and was struck with Its beauty I took some of the seed and dried them and weighed them and found that it would require some five thousand seed to weigh a pound And then I applied mathematics to that forty pound melon One of these seeds put into the ground when warmed by the sun and moistened by the rain goes to work It gathers from somewhere two hundred thousand times its own weight and forcing this raw material through a tiny stem constructs a watermelon It covers the outside with a coating of green Inside of the green it puts a layer of white and within the white a core of red and all through the red it scatters seeds each one capable of continuing the work of reproduction Where did that little seed get its tremendous power Where did It find its coloring matter How did It collect its flavoring extract How did It build a watermelon Until you can explain a watermelon do not be too sure that you can set limits to the power of the Almighty or say just what he would do or how he would do it 1 cannot explain the watermelon but I eat it and enjoy it r Power That Is Infinite and Divine Everything that grows tells a like story of infinite power Why should I deny that a divine hand fed a multi bide with a few loaves and fishes when I see hundreds of millions fed every year by a hand which converts the seeds scattered over the field Into an abundant harvest We know that food can be multiplied ina few months time Shall we deny the pow er of the Creator to eliminate the element of time when we have gone so far In eliminating the element of space But there Is something even more wonderful still the mysterious change that takes place in the human heart when the man begins tlhatetheIthings he loved and to love the things he hated the marvelous transformation that takes place In the man who before the Change would have sacrificed the world for his own advancement but who after the change would give his life for a principle and esteem it a privilege to make sacrifice for his con victions What greater miracle than this that converts a selfish self centered human being into a center from which good influences flow out in every direction And yet this miracle has been wrought in the heart of each one of us or may be wrought and we have seen It wrought In the hearts of those about us No living in the midst of mystery and miracles I shall not allow either to deprive me of the bene fits of tile Christian religion Some of those who question the mir acle also question the theory of atone ment They assert that It does not ac cord with their idea of justice for one to die for others Let each one bear his own sins and the punishments due for them they say The doctrine of vicarious suffering is not a new one It Is as old as the race That one should suffer for others is one of the most familiar of principles and we see the principle illustrated every day ofj our livesSI find proof that man was made in the image of his Creator In the fact that throughout the centuries man has j been willing to die that blessings denied to him might be enjoyed by his children his childrens children and world i theI The seeming paradox He that eth his life shall lose it and he that loseth his life for my sake shall

points just as we are and yet was without sin Christ as an Example jof Humility Humility Is a rare virtue If one Is rich he is apt to be proud of his riches If he has distinguished ancestry he is apt to be proud of his lineage If he is well educated he is apt to be proud of his learning Some one has suggested that if one becomes humble he soon becomes proud of his humility Christ- however

and In that Incomparable prayer which he left as a model for our petitions he made out willingness to forgive thee measure by which we may claim forgiveness He not only taught forgiveness but he exemplified his teachings in his life When those who persecuted him brought him to the most disgraceful of all deaths his spirit of forgiveness rose above his sufferings and he prayed Father forgive them for they know not what they doftWhat conclusion is to be drawn from the life the teachings and the death of this historic figure Reared inacarpenters shop with no knowledge of literature save Bible literature with no acquaintance with philosophers living or with the writings of sages dead this young man gathered disciples about him promulgated a higher code of morals than the world had ever known before and proclaimed himself the Messiah He taught and perform ed miracles for a few brief months and then was crucified His disciples were scattered and many of them put to death His claims were disputed his resurrection denied and his follow ers persecuted and yet from this beginning I1s religIon has spread until millions take his name with reverence upon their lips and thousands have been willing to die rather than surrender the faith which h put into their hearts How shall we account for him What think ye of Christ It Is easier to believe him divine than to explain in any other way what he said and did and was I have selected this theme that I may present some of the reasons which lead me tot believe that Christ has fully earned the title the Prince of Peace and that In the years to come it will be more and more applied to him Faith in him brings peace to the heart and his teachings when applied will bring peace between man and man And If he can bring peace to each heart and If his creed will bring peace throughout the artftwho will deny his right to be called the Prince of Peace All tile world Is In search of peace Every heart that ever beat has sought for peace and many have been the method employed to secure it Some rlchfeswealth hoping to find peace when they were able to go where they pleased and buy what they liked Of those who have endeavored to purchase peace with money the large majority have failed to secure the money But what has been the experience of those who have been successful in accumu lating money They all tell the same story viz that they spent the first half of their lives trying to get money from others and the last half trying to keep others from getting their mon ey and that they found peace in neither half Some have even reached the point where they find difficulty in getting people to accept their money and I know of no better indication of the ethical awakening In this country than the Increasing tendency to scrutinize the methods of money making A long step In advance will have been taken when religious educational and charitable InstItutions refuse to con done immoral methods In business and leave the possessor of gotten gains to learn the loneliness of life when one prefers money to morals Some have sought peace in spciaf dls Unction but whether they have been within the charmed circle and fearful lest they might fall Out or outside and hopeful that they might get In they have not found peace Some have thought vain thoughtto find peace In political prominence but whether office comes by birth as in monarchies or by election as In republics It does not bring peace An office is conspicuous only when few can occupyitx Only when few in a genera tIon can hope to enjoy an honor dp we call It a great honor I am glad that OUT Heavenly Father did not maRe the peace of the human heart depend upon the accumulation of wealth or upon the Becuring of social or political distinct tion for In either

troubled hearts by the hour of prayer Proof of Immortality And immortality Who will estimate the peace which a belief in a future life has brought tothe sorrowing You may talk to the young about death end- Ing all for life is full and hope is strong but preach not this doctrine to the mother who stands by the deathbed of her babe or to one who is within affiictIonIand yet it would hardly seem necessary that one should rise from the dead to convince us that the grave is not the end To every created thing God has given a tongue that proclaims a resurrection If the Father deigns to touch with dl vine power the cold and pulseless heart of the buried acorn and to make it burst forth from its prison walls will he leave neglected in the earth the soul of man made In the image of his Creator If he stoops to give to the rosebush whose withred blossoms float upon the autumn breeze the sweet assurance of another springtime will he refuse the words of hope to the sons of men when the frosts of winter come It matter mute and inanimate though changed by the forces of nature into a- multitude of forms can never die will the spirit of man suffer annihilation when it has paid a brief visit like a royal guest to this tenement of clay No I am as sure that there is another life as I am that I live toda- yIln Cairo I secured a few grains of that had slumbered for more three thousand years in an Egyptian tomb As I looked at them this thought came Into my mind If one of those grains had been planted on the banks of the Nile the year after it grew and all its lineal descendants planted and replanted from that time unfIl now its progeny would today be sufficiently numerous to feed the teem ing millions of the world If this in visible germ of life in the grain of wheat can thus pass unimpaired through three thousand resurrections I shall not doubt that my soul has poe to clothe Itself with a body suited to Its new existence when this earthly frame has crumbled Into dust A belief in Immortality not only con spies the individual but it exerts a powerful influence in bringing peace between individuals If one really thinks that man dies as the brute dies he may yield to the temptation to do injustice to his neighbor when the circumstances are such as to promise se curity from detection But If one really expects to meet again and live eter nally with those whom he knows today he Is restrained from evil deeds by the fear of endless remorse Again Christ deserves to be called the Prince of Peac because he has given us 3 measure of greatness which promotes peacA When his disciples disputed among themselves as to which should be greatest in the kingdom of heaven he rebuked them and said Let him who would be chlefest among you be the servant of all Service Is the measure of greatness It always has been true It Is true today and it always will be true that he is greatest who does the most of good And yet what a revolution it Will work in this old world when this standard becomes the standard of life Nearly all of our controversies and combats arise from the fact that we are trying to get something from each other There will be peace when our aim Is to do something for each other Our enmities and animosities arise from our efforts to get as much as possible out of the world There will be peace when our endeavor is to put as much as possible into the world Society will take an Immeasurable step toward peace when It estimates a citi zen by his output rather than by his income and gives the crown of its ap proval to the one who makes the lar gest contribution to the welfare of all Christ has also led the way to peace by giving us a formula for the propa gation of good Not all of those who have really desired to do good have employed the Christian method npt all Christians even In all the history of the human race but two methods have been employed The first is the forcible method The other Is the Bible planbe not overcome of evil but overcome evil wayIof overcoming evil I am not muchotja farmer I get more credit farming than I deserve and my little farm receives more advertising than it Is entitled to But I am farmer enough to know that If I cut down weeds they will spring up again and I know that if I plant something there which has more vitality than the weeds I shall not only get rid of the constant cutting but have the benefit of the crop besides In orderthat there might be no mistake about his plan of propagating good Christ went into detail and laid emphasis upon the value of example So live that others seeing your good wprks may be constrained to glorify four Father which is In heaven There Is no human influence so potent for good as that which goes out from 4n upright life I t The Worlds Only Hope It may be a slow ess this conversion of the worldly the silent Influence of a noble example but It is the only sure oneand the doctrine applies to nations as well as to individuals The gospel pf the Prince of Peace gives us the only hope that the world has fand it Is an increasing jhope of the substitution pf reason for arbitra ment of force In the ettimento in ternational 4ispotes But Chrt has given usa platfprm more fundamental than any political party more farremching and more comprehensive than anyrplatfprm rJ t t2 f 1t 4 cf it 4 written by the convention of any party condensedI 1 ibis fellows und enjoined upon us the rule Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself he presented a plan for the solution of all the problems that now vex society or may hereafter arise Other remedies may palliate or post pone the day of settlement but this is nil sufficient and the reconciliation which it effects Is a permanent one If I were to attempt to apply this thought to various questions which are at Issue I might be accused of enter ing the domain of partisan politics but I may safely apply It to two great problems First let us consider the question of capital and labor This is not a transient issue or a local one It engages the attention of the people InIthis country is arbitration for neither side to the controversy can be trusted to deal with absolute justice If allowed undisputed control But arbitration like a court is a last resort It would be better If the relations between em ployer and employee were such as to make arbitration unnecessary Just In proportion as men recognize their kin ship to each other and deal with each other In the spirit of brotherhood will friendship and harmony be secured Both employer and employee need to cultivate the spirit which follows from obedience to the great commandment Ethics of Money Making P- The second problem to which I would apply this platform of peace Is that which relates to the accumulation of wealth We cannot much longer delay consideration of the ethics of money making That many of the enormous fortunes which have been accumulated in the last quarter of a centnr are now held by men who have given to society no adequate service Iii return for the money secured is now general ly recognized While legislatio can and should protect the public from predatory wealth a more effective remedy will be found in the cultivation of ia public opinion which will substitute a higher ideal than the one which tolerates the enjoyment of tmearn j knowstihalbadvantage of his neighbor and conscience when not seared will theI monish against injustice My faltWi the future rests upon the belief tiaat Christs teachings are being m restudied today than ever before and that with this larger study will come an application of those teachings to the everyday life of the world In former times men read that Christ- came to bring life and Immortality to light and placed the emphasis upon Immortality npw they are studying Christs relation to human life In former to lifeff1tihave It more abundantly The world Is learning that Christ came not to narrow life but to enlarge It But this Prince of Peace promises not only peace but strength flpift have thought his teachings fit only the weak and the timid and unsuIted to men of visor energy and ambition Nothing could be further from the truth Only the man of faith can be courageous Confident that he tights on the side of Jehovah he doubts not the success of his cause What mat ters it whether he shares In the shouts of triumph If every word spoken la behalf of truth has its Influence and every deed done for the right weighs 1ln the final account It is Immaterial to the Christian whether his eyes behold victory or whether he dies in the midst of the conflict Only those who believe attempt the bYllttenptia thousand and two can put ten thou sand to flight I can Imagine that the early Christians who were carried into the arena Jcmaie a spectacle for those more savage than the beasts were entreated by their doubting com panions not to endanger their lives But kneeling in the center of the arena they prayed and sang until they were devoured How helpless they seemed and measured by every hu man rule how Hopeless was their cause And yet within a few decades the power which they Invoked proved mightier than the legions of the em peror and the faith In which they died was triumphant oer all that land It is said that those who went to mock at their sufferings returned asking themselves What Is it that can enter Into the heart of man and make him die as these dleThey were greater conquerors In their death than they could have been had they purchased life by a surrender of their faith What would have been the fate of the church if the early Christians had had as little faith as many of our ChrIstians now have And on the other hand if the Christians of today had the faith of the martyrs how long would it be before tfulfillment of the prophecy that every knee shall bow and every tongue confess Our faith should be even stronger than the faith of those who lived 2000 years ago for we see our religion spreading and supplanting the philosophies and creeds of the orient As the Christian ifrows older he ap predates more and more the completeness with which Christ fills the requirements oft the heart and grateful for the peace which he enjoys and for the strength which he has received he repeats the words of the great ichoiar Sir William Jones Before tnjrinystli kitari hVenly truth I ln el In mAnhooda5I knelt In youth
