NOYKMUKK is 1901 THE vote oi the American peopU in the election last weeK was virtually a vote of confidence in its Negro citizens and is the highest trib ute ever paid to them if the mag PresidentnRoosevelt iib accepted as an ample evidence Unfortunately the Race Problem was made the paramount issue by our Democratic friends and was it jected into the canvass with a vim that was really surpris ingtbut it seems to have been stripped of its usual virtue and the pople have announced th it it is no longer available as a politicalI issue The Negro has no desire to dominate in politics or amy thing else but simply asks for the same rights as are accorded other Ameri thecansame conditions This a reasonable aspiration and no good citizenshould complain that the Negro desires to t enjoy the rights to live and worship GoTaVSrr3Tng fb the dictates of his own conscience Now that the controversy is a thing of the past we hope it may never be resurrect ed again neither to disturb our over sensitive neighbors who are afraid of Negro domination nor make it necessary to again cause the Negro and his friends to defend a righteous cause TilE election of three Republi can Congressman from Kentucky was rather a surprise ar was the unprecedented majority given to Roosevelt and Fairbanks through out the country but the nttempt to cheat the republicans of this state out of the fruits of that victory is contemptable Yet that is exactly what is being done in the Ninth district where judge Bennett has been fairly elated by Democratic Election Boards throwing thc votn of two precincts upon purely tech nical grounds There is riotliin to be gained by this method as the courts oi the state have lime and time again decided that when dup licnif returns properly signed and certified are produced when bv neglect or carlessness the original1 returns have not been signed that the vote should he counted acr r dinghy Even if this should failifv epubican Congress would citin ly seat Judge Bennett who would under the circumstances make n contest Better have lair and hon est elections and have the votes counted as cast rather than resont defeatot e the will of the people

WVD4T NOVEMBER 18 1904 SUN DAY SCHOOL LESSON SUNDAY NOVEMBER 27 TEMPERANCE Isa 28113 Motto TextThey have also erred through wine and through strong drink are out of the way Isa 287 There is no lesson more needed in the world today than this in which Gods wrath against the drunkenness of Israel and Judah is told For unless there is a change and that a speedy one the civilized races will perish from the face of the earth seltdestroyed by alcohol and opium If there were no hell disclosed in the Bible all trueheart- ed men would feel there must be a hell when they read of the men who send millions of gallons of rum l to Africa from Boston Woe to the crown of pride to the drunkards of EphriamSa maria was a beautiful city situated on the top of an oval shaped hill surrounded by very fertile lands God had been very gracious to Ephraim in the portion of his in heritance Isaiah admits the beau ty of the luxurious city but pro nounced a woe upon it Amos gives a graphic description of the luxury in which the people lived He tells of their ivory palaces their beds of ivory the melody of viols in their leasts their wine in bowls etc luxurIionsthose days and one it is well for this generation to remember which has always been a precurser of a downfall in a nation The glorious beauty of such civilization ever a fading flower Samaria the capi tal rity was on a hill at the head of me tenile valleys of the country OJ them that are overcome with wine Drunkenness always ac companies the accumulation ofIIt wealthand the adoption of luxuri ous habits Overcome is vets expressive Men who begin with moderate drinking pride themselves on their power of resistance and I say wine willnever overcome enItirelvible many more might have suflfic ient power of resistance to stop short of drunkenness But is a poison which gets alcoholI blood and the brain and demands more of itself When the blood has a certain amount ofalcohol a man can no more prevent himself from drinking than he can keep awake by his will when sleeping to his death from a deadly amount of laudanum Behold the Lord hath a mighty and strong oneThe Assyrian king whose destruction of Samaria is graphically described in the following words God uses the wrath if min to praise Him and makes t i IK nations the instruments of lily vengeance Warnings prom ises blessings and chastisements had God tried for pears upon these ten tribes But His long suffering had come to an end To await repentance was to hope against hope for the crowning sin of this people was inebriety and inebriety crowds out of brain and heart the possibility of better things Eph raim was joined to his wine cup beyond hope of reformation Though God punished as a holy and right eous ruler ought to punish yet he mourned over a wicked and incor rigible son 0 Ephraim what shall I do unto thee I taught thee to go taking thee by the arms but thou knowest not that I healed thee 0 Epbraim how can i give thee U upThe crown ofpride the drunk ards oj Ephriam Ol the druuk ards of Ephriam Their beautiful capital It shows how general was the drunkenness when the prophet calls all the people the drunkards of Ephraim i Samaria was made a heapof ruins and the ten tribes car 0 11 ried away into captivity and lost among the nations Their country was so beautiful that it was a sweet morsel to the conqueror which 1 When he that looketh upon it seeth it while it is yet in his hand he eatcth it up- Epbraim in all his pride and prosperity had gone reeling to ruin I and the Lord turns to thejemannt of Abrahams seed the kingdom ot Judah with a great and glorious promise The reign of the good Hezekiah began three years before Samarria was destroyed If Judah will be reformed by its pious king willavoid the destructive sin of Israel drunkenness and walk in the paths of righteousness then the Lord will be to them a crown of glory and a diadem of beauty He would bless them spiritually and 1 temporallyII to him that sitteth in and for strength to judgmentI I the battle to the gate give wisdom and justice to their rulers strength to their soldiers the two great requisites in civil government These were national blessings promised Their soldiers should be able to carry their victorious arms even to the very gates of the enemy When we see the lack of wisdom and justice in the kings and congresses who rule today may we not consider it rightly a chastisement for the drunkenness of the nations Is not liquor in many ways the corrupter of governments But they also have erredthrough wine Despite the promises of God despite the stern warnings to be read in Ephraims fate udah too was given to intoxication What is the awful power of alcohol that it can make men forget the I fear of God and be careless of their own welfare There is no reason which can be addressed to intelli gent creatures which does not appeal to them to let wine and strong drink antirely alone 1 Thepriest and cite propnci have erred through strong drinkTer rible picture of the condition of the nation when those who ought to have been tne teachers and exam pies of righteousness were them selves drunkards Men not only err in dnnking themselves but this sin never stands alone Men will do things when under the influence lofot liquor they would never do when sober and yet knowing all this men Rill begin drinking will keep wine and cider in their hous es allow their children to drink and give it fo their neighbors Can neither love of God nor love of men restrain them II 1 They were swallowed up o- fwineV e r y expressive words I How much does not wine swallow up Men throw away earthand heaven all they have here and might have hereafter for strong I drink They err in vision they stumble in judgement The law I forbade the priests to drink while on duty But these drunken men paid no heed They reeledwhile they swung their censers at the golden altar they defiled the ta I I anvI rible Is not the wonder great that God bore with such grevious in sults in his worship so long as he did The priests were the rulers and judges of the people hence they were doubly bound in honor to be sober and God fearing They erred in vision as religious leaders they stumbled in judgment as evil rulersAnd the men of Juadh were in solent and defiant in their drunken nest Tbey answeierJ him with mockery I Whom shall he teach knowledgeAre w e children just wea ed that this prophets at tempts to instruct use And they mock him and his continued repc tition of warning He wearies us with his Ceaseless line upon 1 e precept upon precept here a little and there a little Is this not much the w the moderate drink er answers to this daywhen asked to sign the pledge Does he not declare himself no child to need such support to his resolution There is small hope for men even t i iii o 1 t though God be so mercifulwho ridicule the warnings He sends them Is there more hope for a nation which persists not only in its own drunkenness but in send rum to Africa to Alaska to the In dians If God spared not his own chosen people who was not as basely guilty in that they did not corrupt others will he spare us Isaiah replies to their mockery They had ridiculed him foi stammering that is for repeating what he said in a childish way He answers that God will exile them among a people whc will speak RI strange language What made their conduct the more repreheusi ble was they were the very ones to whom such gracious promises had bean made Isaiah takes up their mocking words and tells them the line upon Hoe which they had rid- iculedI was the word of the Lord I You have scored my instructions as monosyllabels fit for children By irritating monosyllables of grad ual penalty God shall instruc you a second time It would be well to end
