"Tho .president earnestly desires that bloodshed ceaso and that the people of the Philippines at an early date enjoy the largcat measure of compatible with peace and order." Wamun.oton, May 23. Thc report from Manila that a form of government has been proposed to the l'lllp uos, Including a governor general, cabinet and advisory council, is confirmed at thu statu department, where it is said this is thu general lino of action on which the authorities here and at Manila tire proceeding. The plat) Is tho outgrowth of numerous cables and mall exchanges belw ecu President Schurman, of the Philippine commission, and Secretary Hay, and as well as advices from Gen. Otis and Adm. Dewey. The proposition to have a governor general and cabinet appointed by the president Is subntau-ally the same as thc system now In operation iu Cuba. Like thc Cuban system, thc administration would be military in character, for thc time being at least, while conditions wera unsettled. The authorities here arc acting on tho theory that as, iu thc case of Porto llico, it will be for congress to establish thc permanent form of government tot thc island. It was understood at thc time Maj. tSen. Lawton went to Manila that Gen. Otis would become governor general, while Gen. Lawton assumed active direction of military alfalrs. It is not improbable that this plan might be carried out if the Filipinos accept the plan now proHel. thus making Gen. Otis tho first governor general, with (ion. Lawton and Gen. occupying positions similar to Ludlow and Wood In thoic of . Cuba. Tluf proposed "ndvlnory council Is also similar to that in ub.i. where Gov. Gen. Hrooko has tho advico of a native council as well as that of the military t Ulcers under him.

Weighed In the balances fount wnnt-lu1 g. There has been n great deal of cheating in our country with false weights nnd measures and balances, nnd the government, to change that Ktutc of things, appointed commissioners w hose business it wns to stump weight and measures and balances, and a great deal of the wrong has been corrected. Hut itlll, nf.- -r nil, there is no such thing ns a perfect mlance on earth. The chain mny break, or somo of the mctnl may bo clipped, or In some way the equipoise may lie disturbed. You cannot nl ways depend upon earthly balances. A pound is not nlwnysn pound, and you may pay for one thing and get unothcr, font in the bnlancu which Is suspended to the throne of G(.Jn pound it u pound, and right is right, and w rong Is w rong. nnd n Mini Is is soul, mid eternity Is eternity. God has a perfect bushel and a perfect peck and u perfect gallon. When merchant!) weigh their goods in the wrong way. then the Lord weighs tho rp:ods again. If from the imperfect think If God put on one side of tho balances suspended from the throne the Alps and the Pyrenees mid tho Mount Washington and nil tho cities of the earth they would crush it. No, not The time will come when God will sit down on the white throne to bmj the world weighed, and on one side will be the world's opportunities and on the other side the world's sins. Down will go the sins, and away will go the oportuuitles, and God will say to the messengers with the torch: "llurit that worldl Weighed nnd found winning!" So God will weigh churches. He takes u great church. That church, great according to the worldly estimate, must bo weighed. He puts it on one side the balances and the minister nnd the choir nnd the building that cost its hundred of thousands of dollars, lie puts them on one side tho balances. On the other hide of the Kcnlo He puts what thnt church ought to be, what Its consreia-tlo- n ought to be, whntitssympnthy for the jwor ought to be, whnt ita dctotlou to till good ought to be. That is on one side. That side comes down, nnd the church, not being able to stand the test, rises in the balance. It does not mnke any 'difference about your magnificent machinery. A church is built for one thing to save souls. If it faxes a few soul when It might wive a multi-tud- u of Minis, God will spew it out of His mouth Weighed nnd found wanting! So we perceive thntGod estlnintcs nations. How many times He hns put the Spanish monarchy Into the scales and fo'ind It instilliclcut nnd condemned it! The Trench empire was placed on one side of the scales, nnd God weighed th" riench empire, nnd Nnpolcon snld: "Hate I not enlarged the iKiuletnrtls? Did I not kindle tho glories of the Champs Klynees? atn I not adorned the Tullerics? Hnte I not built the gilded opera house?" Then God weighed the nation, nnd H put on one side tho scnles the emperor, and the bouletards, and the Tullerics, and the Champs Klysces, nnd the gilded opera hnuc, nnd on the other side he puU that man's nboinlnntions, thnt man's libertinism, thnt man's selfishness, that man's godless nmbitlnti. This last came down, anil all the brilliancy of the scene tniilshcd. What is that tolco coming tip from Sedan? Wrighed nnd found wanting! Hut I must become more individual nnd morepcrsonnlln my nddrcss. Some people say they do not think clergymen ought to bo personal In their religious address, but ought to deal with subjects In tho abstract. I do not think that way. What would you think of n hunter who should go to the Adirondack to shoot deer in the abstract ? Ah, no! He loads his guy; ho puts tho butt of It ngalnst his breast, ho runs his eye nlon,7 the barrel, he taken sine aim, and then crash go the antlers on the rockHl And so, if we wnnt to be hunters for the Lord, wc must take sure aim nnd lire. Not In the nbstrnct are wc toticnt things In religious discussions. If n physician conies Into a sick room, does he treat disease in the abstract? No; he feels the pulse, makes the diagnosis, then he wiites the prescription. And, if we want to heal souls for this life and the life to como, wedo not wnnt to treat them in the nbstnicU The fact Is, you nnd I hnte a malady which. If uueured by grace, will kill us forever.
