being turned out and orders for the completion of vessels under way and under repair are rush ed Men are enlisting in the navy List as they can be examined Forts are garrisoned and while the Wash

hostilities will be declared against Spain would weigh anchor and leave for other ports While no true American would harm the vessel yet some crank or Cuban extremist will possibly the boat if she remais there Then we would be in a sweet mess Spain would have us where we now have the middle of an embarass ing position If Uncle Sam would on ly whisper a word of caution into the ear of the

religious addresses so that I have for many years been allowed the privilege of preaching the Gospel every week to jjyery neighborhood in Christendom uud u iiaf y uls Pte c Christen dom Many huve wondered at the pro cess by which it liar come to pass and for the first time in public piece 1 state the three causes Many years ago a young ujau vljp lifts siG become eminent in his profession was then studying law in a distant city Tic came to me and said that for lack of funds he must hte sUrlying through stenography I wpuld give him sketches of smnqns tlnvt lIe might by time sole of them secure means for the completion of his education 1 declined bccaus it saeiuid to ins an impossibility but after some months hqd passed and I had reflected upon the great sadness for such a bril linnt young man to be defeated in his amb lioi for the legal profession I undertook to servo him of course free of charge Within three wyeUs therj came a request for those stenographic reports from many pur to of the Time passed on and some gentlemen of my own profession evi dently thinking that there wai hardly room for them as l ffjr myself in this continent began to sissjH me Uj4 be came so violent in their usiault that the chjcif newspapers of America put special correspondents in my church Sabbsth by Sabbath to tft e down such reply as I might make 1 never made reply except once lot about three minutes but those could not ttfiste their time and so they telegraphed the sermons to their particular papers After a while Dr Louis Klops ih of New York the work into a syndicate until through that and other cates he has put the discourses woek by week before more than 20000000 on both sides the sea There have been so many guesses on this subject many of them inaccurate that 1 now tell the true story I have not im proved the opportunity as I ought but I feel the time has ppjije when of common justice to the newspa per press should make a sermon commemorative of the two thousandth full publication of sermons and religious addresses saying notti fragmentary reports which would run up into many thousands moreThere was one incident that I might mention in this connection showing how an insignificant event might us for ji lifetime Many years ago on a Sabbath morning on my way to church in Brooklyn a of a prominent newspaper met me and said Are you going to give us any points today I said What do you mean by points lIe replied Anything we can remember I said to myself we ought to be making points all the timg jn our pulpits and not deal in platitudes and inanities That one interrogation put to me that morning started in me the desire of points all the time and noth ing but points And now how can I more appropri ately commemorate the two thousandth publication than by speaking of the newspaper press as an ally of the pul pit and mentioning some of the trials of newspaper men The newspaper is the great educator of the nineteenth century There is no force compared with it It is book pulpit platform forum all in one And there is not an interest religr ious literary commercial scientific agricultural or mechanical that is not within its grasp All our churches and schools and colleges and asylums and art galleries feel the quaking of the printing press The institution of newspapers arose in Italy In Venice the nrt newspaper was published and monthly during the time Venice was warring against Solyman the second in Dalinatia it was printed for the purpose of giving military and commercial information to the Venetians The first newspaper published in England was in 15S8 and called the English Mercury Who can estimate the political scientific and religious revolutions roused up in England for many years past by the press The first attempt at this institution- In France was in 1631 by a physician who published the News for the and health of his patients The French nation understood fully how to appreciate this power So early us in there were in Paris hit journals in the United States the newspaper come to unlimited sway Though in 1775 there were but 37 in the whole epuntry the number of published jour nals is now counted by thousands and well acknowledge it as not the religious and secular newspapers are the great educators of the country But alas through what struggle the newspaper has come to its present de velopment Just as soon as it began demoustrate its power superstition and tyranny shackled it There is that despotism so much fears and as the printing press A great writer in the south of Europe declared the King of Naples had made it unsafe for him to write on any subject save natural history Austria could not bear Kossuths journalistic pen pleading for the redemption- of Hungary Napoleon I wanting- to keep his iron heel on the neck of nations said that the newspaper was regent of kings and the only safe to keep an editor was in prison the great battle for the freedom of the press was fought in the courtrooms of

profession has made in influence and power since the day when Peter Siihaefter invented cast metal type because two books were found just alike they wcro ascribed to work of the devil and books were printed on strips of and Rev Jesse Glover originated the first American printing press and the common council of New York in solemn resolution offered 200 to any printer who woull come there and live and when the speaker of the house of parliament in nounced with indignation that the public prints had recognized some of their doings until in this day when wehave in this country many thou sands of skilled stenographers and newspapers sending out copies by the billion The press and the telegraph have gone down into the same great harvest field to reap and time telegraph says to the newspaper Ill rake while you bind and the iron teeth of the telegraph are set down at one end of the harvest field and drawn clean across and the newspaper gathers up the sheaves setting down one sheaf on the breakfast table in the shape of a morning newspaper and putting down another sheaf on the tea table in the shape of an evening news paper and that man who neither reads nor takes a newspaper would be a curi osity What vast progress since the days when Cardinal Wolscy declared that either the printing press must go down or the Church of God must go down to this time when the printing press and the pulpit are In glorious combination and alliance One of the great trials of this profession is the fact that they are compelled to see more of the shams of the world than any other profes sion Through
