regular ses ion Monday night Some matters o minor importance were transacted and then the fixing o the tax levy for this was gone into It was found that the total of assessed property had fallen off about 78 003 from last years and a committee was appointed to look into the whys and wherefores They found that the falling off was caused by the settlement made by sev eral guardians the winding up of some estates and the distribution among oreign heirs of the money Property generally had been listed at its usual rate save the Opera House lot which was given in at 3103 by Messrs Ows ley Shanks This lot was listed last year at 3 000 The running expenses of the town are the same as has been or several years passed but owing to the falling off in the assessment and the fact that the town has put 8830 in to the new Work House it was nec essory for the Council to fix the rate at 50 cents A stated above this raise U not caused by increased expenses but from the falling off in amount assessed

thing of newspaper work can appre ciate the difficult task of publishing a newspaper in Lancaster In the last twenty years ten different publishers some of them old and experienced men have tackeld and given up the job The question is often asked why it is thus The reason is simply because the job and commercial work which should be given the home paper is sent to foreign concerns A drummer came here a few weeks since and took orders for enough job work to almost pay the running expenses of Tim REcoRD for a month Of course these have a perfect right to send their orders to Halifax if they choose to do so but the rub comes in when they bring their axes to our office to be ground Let some of their relatives die and TIn RECORD must spend half a day studying up good things to say about

hen is on again low long she will continue to set is conjecture It s reported that so important are the negotiations about to be opened that nothing will be heard from the Presi dent until Monday It is believed now that the early statements from the White House that the President was waiting for Lee and the Americans to 1 a corn Presidents get out of Havana was that he was really awaiting a dispatch from Woodford who cabled last night it is learned that he would have an important communication to make about midday and not let the message go to Congress until he was heard from On the Senate side it is claim ed by members who are in the of the President that no more negotiations lire on Lut the postpone ment of the message is due to advices from Gen Lee relating to the depart ure of Americans from Havana This statement is insisted upon by several administration Senators who deny that the Quean Regent wants to make concessions MARKSBURY Mrs J B Haselden sold to T L Herring

about 15 minutes long according to the ordinary rate of speech a sermon on the Mount of Olives the preacher sitting while lie spoke according to the ancient mode of oratory the people were given to understand that the same yardstick that they employed upon others would be employed upon themselves Meas ure others by a harsh rule and you wilfc be measured by a harsh rule Measure others by a charitable rule and you will be measured by a char itable rule Give no mercy to others and no mercy will be given to you With what measure ye mete it shall be measured to you again There is a great deal of unfairness in criticism in human conduct It was to smite that unfairness that Christ ut tered tine words of the text and my sermon will be a reecho of the divine sentiment In estimating the of others we must take into consideration the pressure of circum stances It is never right to do wrong hut there are degrees of culpability When men misbehave or commit some atrocious wickedness we are disposed indiscriminately to tumble them all over the bank of condemnation Suf fer they ought and suffer they must but in difference of degree In the first place in estimating the misdoing of others we must take into calculation the hereditary tendency There is such a thing as good blood and there is such a thing as bad blood There are families that have had a moral twist in them for a hundred years back They have not been careful to keep the family record in that regard There have been escapades and maraudings and scoundrelisms and moral deficits all the way back whether you call it kleptomania or pyromania or 1 4 I Matthew eda misbehavior dipsomania or whether it be a milder form and amount to no mania at all Time strong probability is that the present criminal started life with nerve muscle and bone contaminated As some start life with a natural to nobility and generosity and kindness and truthfulness there are others who start life with just the op posite tendency and they are born liars or born malcontents or born outlaws or born swindlers There is in England a school that is called the Princess Mary school All the children in that school are the children of convicts The school is under highpatronage I had the pleas ure of being presented at one of their anniversaries presided over by the earl of Kintore I5y a wise law in England after parents have a cirtain number of crimes and thereby shown themselves incompetent rightly to bring up their children the little ones are taken from under per nicious influences and put in schools where all gracious and kindly influences shall be brought upon them Of course the experiment is young and it has got to be demon strated how large a percentage of the children of convicts may be brought up to respectability and usefulness But we all know that it is more diffi cult for children of bad parentage to do right than for children of good parentageIn we are taught by the declaration of American independence that all people are born equal There never was a greater misrepresentation put in one sentence than in that which implies that we are born equal You may as well say that flow ers are born equal or animals are born equal Why does one horse cost and another horse cost 5000 Why does one sheep cost 10 and another sheep cost Difference in blood We are wise enough to recognize it in horses in cattle in sheep but we are not wise enough to make allow ances for the difference in the human blood Now I demand by the law of eternal fairness that you be more lenient in your criticism of those who were born wrong in whose ancestral line there was a hangmans knot or who came from a tree the fruit of which for centuries has been gnarled and wormeaten in tendency committed reformatory 100 500 sentence a gave some marvelous statistics in his story of a woman he called Margaret the mother of criminals Ninety years ago she lived in a village in upper New York state She was not only poor but she was vicious She was not well somewhat looked after her but chiefly scoffed at her and derided her and pushed her further down in crime That was 90 years ago There have been C23 persons in that ancestral line SOO of them criminals In one branch of that family there were 20 and nine of them have been in state prison and nearly all of the others have turned out badly It is estimated that that family cost the county and state 100000 to say nothing of the property they Are you not willing as sensible fair people to acknowledge that it is a fearful disaster to be born in such an ancestral line Does it not make a great difference whether one descends from Margaret the mother of crimi nals or from some mother in Israel Whether you are the son of Ahab or the son of Joshua It is a very different thing to swim with the current from what it is to swim against the current as some of you have no doubt found in your sum mer recreation If a man finds him self in an ancestral current where not a great credit to him if he turn out honest and pure and noble He could hardly help it But suppose he is born in an ancestral line in an hered itary line where the influences have been bad and there has been a coming down over a moral declivity if the man surrenders to the influences he will go down under the overmastering gravitation unless some supernatural aid be afforded him Now such a deserves not your excoriation but your pity Do not sit with the lip curled in scorn and with an assumed air of angelic innocence looking down upon such moral precipitation You bad better get down on your knees and first pray Almighty God for your rw Dr Harris reformer almshouses destroyed smoothlyfrom goodand w t person and next thank the Lord that you have not been thrown under the wheels of that juggernaut In Grrnt Britain and in the United States in every generation there are tens of thousands of persons who are fully developed criminals and incar tvraUd I say in every generation Then I suppose there are tens of thousands of persons not found out in their criminality In addition to these there are tens of thou sands of persons who not posi tively becoming criminals neverthe less have a criminal tendency Anyone of all those thousands by the grace of God may become Christian and resist the ancestral influence and open chapter of behavior but the vast ma jority of them win not and it becomes all men professional ministers of religion judges of courts philan thropists and Christian workrs to recognize the fact that there are these Atlantic and Pacific surges of hereditary evil rolling on through the centuries I say of course a man can resist this tendency just as in the ancestral line mentioned in the first chapter of Matthew You see in the same line in which there was a wicked Kchoboam and a desperate Manzisses there afterward came a pious Josiah and a glorious Christ But my friends you must recognize the fact that these influences go on from generation to generation I am glad to know however that a river which has nothing but miasma for a miles may after awhile turn the wheels of factories and help support industrious and virtuous populations and there are lines which were poisoned that arc a benediction now At the last day it will be found out tbat there are men who have gone clear over into all forms of iniquity and plunged into utter abandonment who before they yielded to the first temptation resisted more evil than a man who has been moral and all his life But supposing now that in this age when there are so many good people that I come down into this audience and select the very best man in it I do not mean the man who would style himself the best for probably he is a hypocrite but I mean the man who before God is really the best I will take you out from all your Christian surroundings I will put you in a praved home I will put you in cradle of iniquity Who is bending over that cradle An intoxicated mother Who is that swearing in the next room Your father The neigh bors come in to talk and their jokes are unclean There is not in the house a Bible or a moral treatise but only a few scraps of an old pictorial After awhile you are old enough to get out of the cradle and you are struck across the head for naughtiness but never in any kindly manner repri manded After awhile you are old enough to go abroad and you are sent out with a basket to steal If you come homo without any spoil you are ped until the blood comes At 15 of age you go out to fight your own battles in this world which seems to care no more for you than the dog that has died of a fit under the fence You are kicked and cuffed and Some day rallying your cour age you resent some wrong A man says Who are you I know who you are Your father had free lodgings at Sing Sing You mother she was up for drunkenness at the criminal court III j T erie a new produced hundred family upright buffeted Get out of the way von lowlivei Ju de- L whipS wretch My brother suppose that had been the history of your advent and the history of your earlier surround ings would you have been the Chris tian man you are today seated in this outlaw a murderer on the scaffold atoning for your crime All these con siderations ought to make us merciful in our dealings with the wandering and the lost Again I have to remark that in our estimation the misdoing of people who have fallen from and usefulness we must take into con sideration the conjunction of circum stances In nine cases out of ten the man who goes astray does not intend any positive wrong He has trust funds He risks a part of these funds in investment He says Now if I should lose that investment I have of my own property five times as much and if this investment should go wrong I could easily make it up I could five times make it up With that wrong reasoning he goes on and makes an investment and it does not turn out quite as well as he expected and he makes another investment and strange to say at the same time all his other affairs get entangled and all his nayYou highrespectability other resources fail and his hands are tied Now he wants to extricate him self lie goes a little further on in the wife and children he wants to save his home he wants to save his member ship in the church He takes one more plunge and all is lost Some morning at 10 oclock the bank door is not opened and there is a card on the door signed by an officer of the bank indicating there is trouble and the name of the defaulter or the de frauder heads the newspaper column and hundreds of men say Good for hundreds of other men say Just as I told you hundreds of other men say We couldnt possibly have been tempted to do conjunction of circumstances could ever have over thrown me and there is a superabund ance of indignation but no pity The heavens full of lightning but not one drop of dew If God treated us as so ciety treats that man we would all agoWait circum stances Perhaps he may have been the dupe of others Before you let all the hounds out from their kennel to maul and tear that man find out if he has not been brought up in a commer cial establishment where there was a wrong system bf ethics taught find out whether that man has not an ex extravagant wife who is not satisfied with his honest earnings and in the men have and by the same temptation to make a procession of many miles Perhaps some sudden sickness may have touched his brain and his judgment may be unbalanced He is wrong he is awfully wrong and under the same temptation you might have fallen The reason some men do not steal

to whom the credit of that bank was a matter of pride Yes I am sorry also for that man who brought all the distres sorry that he sac rificed body mind soul Deputation Heaven and went into of darkness forever You defiantly say I could not be tempted in that way Perhaps you may be tested after awhile God has a very good memory and He sometimes seems to say This man feels so strong in his innate power and goodness he shall be tested he is so full of bitter invective against that unfortunate it shall be shown now whether he has the power tostandFifteen years go by The wheel of fortune turns several times and you are in a crisis that you never could have anticipated Now all the powers of darkness come around and they chuckle and they chatter and they say Aha here is the old fellow who was so proud of his integrity and who bragged he couldnt be overthrown by temptation and was so uproarious in his demonstrations of indignation at the defalcation 15 years ago Let ua seeGod lets the man go God who had kept that man under Ilis protecting care lets the man go and try for him self the majesty of his integrity God letting the man go the powers of dark ness pounce upon him I see you some day in your office in great excitement One of two things you can do Bo honest and be pauperized and have your children brought home from school your family dethroned in social influence The other thing is you can step a little aside from that which is right you can only just go half an inch out of the proper path you can only tako a little risk and then you have all your finances fair and right You will have a large property You can leave fortune for your chil dren and endow a college and build a public library in your nativj town You halt and wait anl halt and wath until your lips get
