to effect the success of the movement At Indianapolis the American Bicy cle Co is reported as agreeing to the demands but refusing to sign the agreement The sauce condition ex ists at several other points and the matter is being left to the local organization to settle Mr OConnell said Thursday night that he could not understand this policy on the part of the employers but was not disposedi to haggle over a minor issue and if necessary he would not insists n the men staying out on account of that technicality He said the organiza tion of the men is sufficient to enforce their demands Washington May 25 President Tarsus OConnell of the International Association of Machinists announced that he would recommend to the next annual convention of machinists at Toronto beginning June 3 that a date be set for a ninehour day without reduction of wages on all the railroads of the country On railroads which fail to comply with this demand n strike will be ordered This recommendation will be made in Mr OConneHs annual report Mr OConnell says that Mich a strike would involve probably 100000 men including 10000 machinists the others being boiler makers pattern makers and semiskilled workmen who work with the machinists in the various shops The policy will be to enforce the demand by tying up practically the entire mechanical service of the roads Mr OConnell says the convention doubtless will fix a dato when the ninehour day must be In operation on all roads and he believes this dato should be sonic day in the autumn Mr OConnell says the outlook of the present strike was gratifying A report from Memphis Penn an nounced the signature of six estab lishments there to the agreement The headquarters of the strike has been shifted from Washington to Toronto for which city

the num her of settlements made The adjustments reported during the day show a gain in New England of 1500 in the number of men returned to work with the demands granted of 500 to 600 in Ohio and probably 100 in Pennsylvania About 1000 men struck Thursday There are some additions in Philadelphia and some in the Sea Board Air Line shops at Americus Ga Our policy is to discourage bringing out any more men than is absolutely necessary to effect the success of the movement At Indianapolis the American Bicycle Co is reported as agreeing to the demands but refusing to sign the agreement The same condition ex ists at several other points and the matter is being left to the local or ganization to settle Mr OConnell said Thursdaj night that he could not understand this policy on the part o the employers but was not disposed to haggle over a minor issue and if necessary he would not insists on the men staying out on account of that technicality He said the orgnniza tion of the men is sufficient to enforce their demands Washington May 25 President James OConncll of the International Association of Machinists announced that he would recommend to the noxt annual convention of machinists at Toronto beginning June 3 that a date be set for a ninehour day without reduction of wages on nil the railroads of the country On railroads which fail to comply with this demand a strike will be ordered This recommendation will be made in Mr OConnells annual report Mr OConnell says that such a strike would involve probably 100000 men including 10000 machinists the othcn being boiler makers pattern makers and semiskilled workmen who work with the machinists in the various shops The policy will be to enforce the demand by tying up practically the entire mechanical service of th roads Mr OConnell says the convention doubtless will fix a date when tIle operatiorn on all roads and he believes this dato should be some day in the autumn Mr OConnell says the outlook of the present strike was gratifying A report from Memphis Tenn an nounced the signature of six estab lishments there to the agreement The headquarters of the strike has been shifted from Washington to To ronto for

next case it further decided that when Congress passed a Revenue Act for Porto Rico that it clearly had the right to d and that the constitution did not ap ply or in other words that Congress govern

decisions in the Porto Rico cases which probably are too most important decisions ever rendered by that august tribunal The court is divided the Judges not dividing on political party lines either In plain English the court holds that Porto Rico became a territory of the United States when tho of the United States ratified the Peace Treaty with Spain and that the Constitution extended over it there and then and that tariff taxes then collected were illegal and must bo refunded This decision was made Justices for and 3 against In the nes case it further decided that when Con gress passed a Revenue Act for Porto Rico that it clearly had the right to d so und that the constitution did not apply or in other words that Congress could govern the territory without regard to the limitations of the onstitu iron This decision was reached with 5 Justices for and 4 against How these great Judges learned in the law thoroughly independent in their action can arrive at such widely differing opinions 1 passes the understanding of tho average citizen The Constitution created th Congress and now tho creature has become greater than its creator HutI such is the decision and a great loyal

Almighty God Made all right by the Savioucs grace this man goes to work to make t f 1 the world right ITe says to himself I God launched this world and He never launched a failure The Garden of Eden was a useless morass compared with what the whole world will be when it blossoms and leaves and flashes und resounds with its coming glory God will save it anyhow with me or without me but I want to do my share I knee some equipment not as much as some others but what I have I will user have power to frown and I will frown upon iniquity I have power to smile and I will smile encourage ment upon all the struggling I have a vocabulary not so opulent as the vocabulary of some others but I have a storehouse of good words and I mean to scatter them in help fulness I will ascribe right motives to others when it is possible If I can say anything good about others I will say it If I can say nothing hut vile of them I will keep my lips shut as tight as the lips of the sphinx which for 3000 years has looked o f upon tin sands of the desert and uttered not one word about the desolation The scheme of reconstruct ing this world is too great for me to manage but I am not expected to boss this job I have faith to believe that the plan iit well laid out and will be wclIlexecuted Give me a brick and a trowel und I will begin now to help build the wall I am not a soloist but I can sing Rock of Ages to a sick pauper I cannot write a great book but Itun pick a cinder out of a childs eye or a splinter from under his thumb nail I now nlist in this army that is going to take the world for God and I defy all the evil powers human and satan ic to discourage me Count me into the service 1 cannot play upon n musical instrument but I can polish a cornet or string a harp or applaud the orchestra All through that mans experience there runs a faith that will keep him cheerful and busy and triumphant I like the watchword of Crou veils Ironsides the men who feared 110thI hag and dared everything going into battle with the shout The Lord of hosts is with us the God of lacob is on refuge Selah No balance that human brain ever planned or human hand ever constructed is worthyof weighing sucha spirit Gold and precious stones are measured by the carat which is four grains The dealer puts the diamond or the pearl on one side of the scales and the carat on tits other side and tells you the weight Hut we need something more delicately constructed to weigh that wonderful quality of faith which I am glad to know will be recognized and rewarded for all time and all eternity The earthly weighman counterpoises on metallic balances the iron the coal the articles of hu man food the solids of earthly merchandise but he cannot test or an nounce the amount of things spiritual Here is something which the Attic and Babylonian weighing systems of the past and the weighing system of the metricII not manage The Lord spirits Put also into those royal scales the ambitious spirit Every healthy man and woman has ambition The lack of it is a sure sign of idiocy or immorality The only question is what shall be the style of our ambition To stack up a stupendous fortune to acquire a resounding name to sweep everything we can reach into the whirlpool of our own selfishness that is debasing vinous and deathful If in such a spirit we get what we start for we only secure gigantic discon tent No man was ever made happy by what he got It all depends upon the spirit with which we get it andII the spirit with which we keep it the spirit with which we andII Not since the world stood has there been any instance of complete happi ness from the amount of accumula tion Give the man of worldly ambi tion GO years of brilliant successes He sought for renown and the nations speak his name He sought for afflu ence and he is put to his wits erl to find out the best stocks and bonds in which he may make his investments He is director in banks enough and trustee in enough institutions and president of enough companies to bring on paresis of which he is now dying The royal balances arc lifted to weigh the ambition which has con trolled a lifetime What wns the worth of that ambition How much lid it yield for usefulness and Heaven Less than a scruple less than a grain of sand less than an atom less than nothing Have a funeral a mile long with carriages let the richest robes of ecclesiastics rustle about the cas ket caricature the scene bchoirs which chant Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord That mans life is a failure and if his heirs scuttle in the surrogates court about the incapacity of the testator to make a last will and testament it will only be a prolongation of the failure The son through dissipation spent his share of the fortune before the father died and so was cut off with a dol Iar Time daughter married against his will and she is disinherited Relatives whom he could never bear the sight of will put in their claim and after years of litigation so much of the estate as the lawyers have not appropriated to themselves will go into hands which the testator never once thought of when in his last days he bade tearful farewells to the houses and lands and government securities he couldnot take along with him into the sepulcher But look into the dream of that schoolboy who without saying anything about it is planning his lifetime career From an old book partly written in Hebrew and partly written in Greek but both Hebrew and Greek translated into good English he reads of a great farmer like Amos a great mechanic like Aholiab a great lawyer- like Moses a great soldier like Joshua a great king like Uczckiab a great poet like David a grrat gleaner like liuth a great physic au like Luke a greatChristHeaven because the SUPl for of all be ings terrestrial or celestial He has learned by heart the Ten yjininand ments und time sermon on Uie mount and has splendid theories I everythingand the achievement of what he t

encouragement and disappoint triuniplibutword conic true that boy who willsleep tonight nine hours without wakin will be final victor 1 do not know the intermediate chapters of the volume of that young mans life but 1 know the first chapter and the last chap highri last chapter is filled with the rewards of a noble ambition As his obsequies pass out to the cemetery the poor will weep because they will lose their best friend Many in whose temporal welfare 1 and eternal salvation he bore a part will hear of it in various places and eulogize his memory und God will any to the ascending spirit To him that ovcrioireth will 1 give to eat of the tree of life which is in the midst of the paradise of God In the hour of that souls release and enthronement there will be Heavenly acclamation as in the royal balances the Lord weigheth the spirits In the same thyme scales the spirit of nations and civilizations is weighed Egyptian civilization did its work but it was cruel and superstitious and AlmightyIttourist finds his chief interest not in the generation that now inhabits the regions watered by time Nile and sprinkled by her cascades but in the temples that are the skeletons of an cient pride and pomp and power her obelisks her catacombs her mosques the colossus of llameses the deadcit ies of Memphis and Karnak the museum containing the mummified forms of the pharaoh It is not time Egypt of today that we go to see but the Egypt of many centuries ago Her spirit has departed Her doom was sealed The Lord weighed her spirit And so the spirit of our American nation is put into the royal balance and it will be weighed as certainly as all the nations of the past were weighed and as all the nations of the present are being weighed When we go to estimate the wealth of this na tion we weigh its sold and silver and coal and iron and copper aud lend and nil the steelyards and nil the balances are kept busy So ninny tons of this Iud so ninny tons of that a moun tainful of this metal nnd another moimtainful of another metal That is well We want u know our mining wealth our manufacturing wealth our busllelIis a Divine weighing in this country all the time going on and I win tell you our countrys destiny if you will tell me whether it shall be a God honoring nation reverential to the only book of Ills authorship observing the shall note of the law of right given on Mount

harm Lincolns in the future quite equal to those of the past And the last day of the worlds existence will findour fret American institutions permanent as the mountains before they begin to fall and glorious as the seas before they begin to die What a world this will be when it is weighed after its regeneration shall have taken place Scientists now guess at the number of tons our world weighs and they put the Appe nines and the Sierra Nevadas and Chimborazo and the Himalayas in the scales limit if weighed as to its mpr royalbalancethe wars the international hatreds the crimes mountain high the moral disasters that stagger time hemispheres on their way through Im immensity But when the Gospel has gardcnicd the earth as it will yet gardenize it and the atmosphere shall be universal balm and the soil will produce universal harvest and fruitage and the last cavalry horse shall be unsaddeled and the last gun carriage unwheeled and the last for tress turned into a museum to show nations in peace what a horrid thing war once was then the world will be weighed and as the opposite side of the scales lift as though it was light as a feather the right side of the scales will come down

through that mans experience there runs a faith that will keep him cheerful and busy and triumphan- tI like the watchword of Cromwell Ironsides the men who feared noth ing and dared everything going into battle with the shout The Lord of hosts is with us the God of Jacob is ou refuge Selahl No balance that human brain ever planned or human hand ever constructed is worthy of weighing such a spirit Gold and precious stones are measured by the carat which is four grains The dealer puts thcdiamond or the pearl on cne side of the scales and the carat on the other side and tells you the weight nut we need something more delicately constructed to weigh that wonderful quality of faith which I am glad to lknow will be recognized and rewarded for all time fwd all eternity The earthly wci hman counterpoises on metallic balances the iron the coal the articles cf hu man food the solids of earthly mer chandise but he cannot test or an nounce the amount of things slirit ual Here is something which the Attic and Babylonian weighing sys toms of the past and the metric weighing system of the present can not manage The Lord weigheth the spirits Put also into those royal scales the ambitious spirit Every healthy man and woman has ambition The lack of it is a sure sign of idiocy or immorality The only question is what shall be the style of our ambition To stack up a stupendous fortune to acquire a resounding name to sweep everything we can reach into the whirlpool of our own selfishness that is debasing Ruinous and deathful If in such a spirit we get what we start for we only secure gigantic discon tent No man was ever made happy by what he got It all depends upon the snirit with which we get it and the spirit with which we keep it ana the spirit with which we distribute it Not since the world stood has there been any instance of complete happi ness from the amount of accumulation Give the man of worldlyI ambi tion GO years of brilliant successes He sought for renown and the nations speak his name He sought for afflu ence and he is put to his wits end to find out the best stocks and bonds in which he may make his investments He is director in banks enough and trustee in enough institutions and president of enough companies to bring on paresis of which he is now dying The royal balances arc lifted to weigh the ambition which has con trolled a lifetime What was the worth of that ambition How much did it yield for usefulness and Heaven Less than a scruple less than a grain of sand less than an atom less than nothing Have a funeral a mile long with carriages let the richest robes of ecclesiastics rustle about the casket caricature the scene by choirs which chant Blessed arc the dead that die in the Lord That mans life 01 is a failure and if his heirs scuffle in the surrogates court about the incapacity of the testator to make a onlybeson through dissipation spent his share of the fortune before the father died and so was cut off with a dol lar The daughter married against his will and she is disinherited Relatives whom he could never bear the sight of will put in their claim and after years of litigation so much of the estate as the lawyers have not appropriated to themselves will go into hands which the testator never once thought of when in his last days he bade tearful farewells to the Rouses and lands and government securities he could not take alongwithhiminto the sepulcher But look into the dream of that schoolboy who without saying anything about it is planning his lifetime career From an old book partly written in Hebrew and partly written in Greek but both Hebrew and Greek translated into good English he reads of a great farmer like Amos a great ugreatHayerlikea great king like HezekIah a great W poet like David a great gleaner like Ruth a great physician like jUke a preacher like greatI isdall be ings terrestrial or celestial He has learned by heart the Ten Command and mountIaboutvery Between boycwants andIGod who is going to discipline him for heroics magnificent I powereexperiences of his encouragement and disappoint triumphbutHis wilhIccpIevokingi theIvolume knowtlastchap ter The first chapter is made of hih thelrewards of a noble ambition As his obsequies pass out to the cemetery the poor will weep because they will lose their best friend Many in whose temporal wel fare and eternal salvation he bore apart will hear of it in various places and eulogize his memory and God tvill say to the ascending spirit To him that overcometh will I give to cat of the tree of life which is in the midst of the paradise of God In the hourof that souls release and enthronement there will be Heavenly acclamation as in the royal balances the Lord weigheth the spirits- In the same divine scales the spirit of nations and civilizations is weighed Egyptian civilization did its work but it was cruel and superstitious and tbeAlmightIttourist finds his chief interest not in the generation that now inhabits the regions watered by the Nile and sprinkled by her cascades but in the temples that are the skeletons of ancient pride and pomp and power her obelisks her catacombs her mosques the colossus of Kameses time dead cit ies of Memphis and Karnak the mu seum containing the mummified forms of the pharaohs It is not the Egypt of today that we go to see but the Egypt of ninny centuries ago Her spirit has departed Her doom was sealed The Lord weighed her spirit And so the spirit of our American nation is put into the royal balance and it will be weighed as certainly as all the nations of the past were weighed and as all the nations of the present are being weighed When we go to estimate the wealth of this na tion we weigh its gold and silver and coal and iron and copper and lead and all the steelyards and all the balances are kept busy So many tons of this and so many tons of that a moun tainful of this metal and another mountuiuful of another metal That is well Wc avnttt1in yous miningi wealth ourmannfnetunngwealthour agricultural wealth and the bushel measure and the stole have an impor tant work But know right well there is a Divine weighing in this country all the time going on and I can tell you our countrys destiny if you will tell me whether it shall be a God honoring nation reverential to the only book of His authorship observing the shall nots of the law of right given on Mount Sinai and the law of love given on the Mount of Beati tudes one day out of the week ob served not in revelry but in holy convocation marriage honored in ceremony and in fact blasphemy silenced in all the streets high toped systems of morals in all parts of our land then our institutions will live and all the wondrous prosperities the present are only a faint hint of the greater prosperities to come Richer harvests will rustle in the fields a higher style of literature will turn its leaves in our libraries nobler men will adorn our state and nation legislature nail there will be Wash ingtons nnd Ilamlltons anti Patrick Henrys and John Marsha Us and Abra ham Lincolns in the future quite equal to those of the past And the last day of the worlds existence will find our free American institutions permanent as the mountains before they begin to fall and glorious as the seas before they begin to die What a world this will be when it is weighed after Its regeneration shall have taken place Scientists now guess at the number of tons our world weighs and they put the Appe nines and the Sierra Nevadas and Chimborazo and the Himalayas in the scales But if weighed as to its morals at the present time in the royal balance the heaviest things would beu the wars the international hatreu E the crimes mountain high the moral disasters that stagger the hemi spheres on their way through immensity But when the Gospel has gardcnicd the earth as it will yetI gardenize it and the atmosphere shall be universal balm and the soil will produce universal harvest and fruitage and the last cavalry horn shall be unsaddelcd and the last giiri carriage unwheeled and the last for tress turned into a museum to show nations in peace what a horrid thing war once was then the world will be weighed and as the opposite side of the scales lift as though it was light as a feather tIle right side of the scales will come down weighing more than all else those tremendous values that St Peter enumeratedfaith virtue knowledge temperance patience charityGodwritten concerning us as individuals Or communities nations as it was written on the wall of Belshazzara banqueting hall the four
