RecordHerald thus describes II the effect 01 Gen Grosvenors speech J I I I This speech has elicited widespread comment in Washington It has been the talk of the day It served to emphasize a fact which is gradually drawing I i upon the consciousness of the Republi can leaders that they have blundered i sadly in not revising at least someof 1 the high schedules during the present session of congress At least the leaders jj are beginning to appreciate that the people of the Middle West arb inJ I J J earnest in their desire for a reform ofii1 the altitndinous rates on which big InII dustrial combinations thrive and wax fat by means of unreasonably high I prices extorted from the consumers I Already there is talk among the Re publican leaders of trying to do some thing in the way of taiitt revision be fore the next presidential campaign They have been rather slow in realiz ing the situation in reaching an understanding of the danger which menaces them and some of them do not see it even now But those who have had their eyes opened say it would be suicidal to go into the campaign of 1901 platformThesible to carry through a tariff revision in the short session of congress such IjI as next winters session will be Hut 4 there is talk of trying it j i President Roosevelt has told a nnm I her of callers recently that he very earnestly believed that the tariff should be revised before the next presidential campaign and hinted that he might cnlla special session of congress for that purpose the Republicans are in a genuine scare about the next house OASF r8 R I have largest selected

Louts tlopsch N Y- In J the following discourse prepared by Dr Talmage before his illness the folly and danger of postponing the acceptance of the Gospel invitation are exposed on the text Luke 1418 And they all with one consent began to make excuse After the invitations to a levee ar sent out the regrets come in One ma apologizes for nonattendance on one ground another on another ground 1 The most of the regrets are founded on prior engagements So in my tex f a great banquet was spread the in vitations were circulated and now the regrets conic in The one gives an agricultural reason the other a stock dealers reason the other a domestic reason All poor reasons The fact was they did not want to go And they all wth one consent began to make excuse So now God spreads n great banquet It is the Gospel feast and the table reaches across the hemisphere nn the invitations go out and multitudes come and sit down and drink out of the chalices of Gods love while other mum titudes decline coming the one this hpology and the othergiving that apology and they all with one con sent began to make excuse I propose so far as God may help me to examine the apologies which men make Sop not entering the Christian life Apology the first I am not sure there is anything valuable in the Chris tim religion It is pleaded that there are so many impositions in this day so many things that scenic to be real arc sham A gilded outside may have a hollow inside There isso much quack t politicst ulity and after awhile they allow that incredulity to collide with our holy religion But my friends I think religion las made a pretty good record in the world How many wounds it liar salved How ninny pillars of fire vit has lifted in the midnight wilder ness How many simoom struck des crts it hath turned into the gardens of the Lord How it hath stilled the chopped sea What rosy light it hath sent streaming through the rift of the stbrmcloud What pools of cool wa tcr it hath gathered for thirsty Hngar and Ishmael What maium whiter than coriander seed it hath dropped nll around the camp of hardly bostod pilgrims What Iromises it hath sent r out like holy watchers to keep the lamps burning around deathbeds through the darkness that lowers into the sepulcher What lashes of resur rection norn Besides that this religion has made 4 4soninny heroes It brought Summer l field the Methodist across the Atlan tic pjpean with his silver trumpet to oJ blohtle acceptable year of the Lord until it second as if all our American cities would take tile kingdom of heaven by violence It sent Jehudi Ashman into Africa a we in a continent of naked barbarians to lift the standard of civilization and Christian ity It made John Milton among poets Raphael among painters Christo pher Wren among architects Thor waldsen among sculptors Handel among musicians Dupont among mil itnry eommanders and to give new wings to the imagination and better balance to the judgment and more determination to the will and greater usefulness to the life and grander nobility to the soul there is nothing in all the earth like our Christian religion IVotlyng in religion Why then alp thosejChriatianR were deceived when in th4r dying moment they thought they saw the castles of the blessed and your child that with unutterable graveyouhis sweet voice nor feel the throb of his young heart There is nothing in religion Sickness will come upon you lloll and turn on your pillow no relief The medicine may be bitter the night may be dark the pain may be sharp no relief Christ newer comes to the sickroom Let the pain stab let the fever burn curse it nnd die There is nothing in religion After awhile death will come You will hear the pawing of time pale horse on the threshold The spirit will be breaking

for whom I have a warmer sym pathy than for skeptics We do not know prow to treat them We deride them we caricature them We instead of taking them by the soft hand of Christian love clutch them with the iron pinchers of ccclesiasticism Oh if you knew how those men had fallen away from Christianity and become skeptics you would not be so rough on them Some were brought up in homes where religion was over done The most wretched day in the week was Sunday lieligion was driven into them with n triphammer They hinda surfeit of payer meetings They were stuffed and choked with catechisms They were told by their parents that they were the worst chil dren that ewer lived because they liked to ride down hill better than to read Pilgrims Progress They never heard their parents talk of religion but with the corners of the mouth drawn down and the eyes rolled up f Others went into skepticism through xazvltrcatrncnt on Uc part of some 4- j f j who professed religion There is a man who says My partner In buai ness was conspicuous lu prayer meet ing and he was officious in all religious circles but he cheated me out of 3000 and I dont want any of that religioi + jThen there are others who get into skepticism by n natural per sistence in asking questions why or how How can God be one being in three persons They cannot under stand it Neither can L How can God be a complete sovereign and

their heads but through their hearts When these men really theydbe worth far more to the cause of Christ than those who never exam ined the evidence of Christianity skepticyChristmas Evans once a skeptic but when they did lay hold of the Gospel chariot how they made it speed ahead If therefore I address men and wom en who have drifted away into skepticism I throw out no scoff I rather im plead you by the memory of those good old times when you knelt at your mothers knee and said your evening prayer and those other days of sickness when she watched all night and gave you the medicine at just the right time and turned the pillow when it was hot and with hand lung ago turned to dust Soothed Jour pain and with that yoke you will never hear again unless you join her in the bet ter country told you never mind you would be better by and by and by that dying couch where she talked so slowly I catching her breath between the words by all those memories I ask you to come and take the same

The wildest horse that ever trod Arabian sands has been broken to bit and trace The maddest torrent tumbling from mountain shelving has been harnessed to the mill wheel and the factory band setting a thousand shuttles all Abuzz and aclatter And the wildest the haughtiest the most ungovernable man ever created by the grace of God may be subdued and sent out on ministry of kindness as God sends an August thunderstorm to water the wild flowers down in the grass Peter with nature tempestu ous as time sea that he once tried to walk at one look from Christ went out and wept bitterly Kich harvests

pestiferous lanes of the city met the lamplight her guilt with the words Thy sins are forgiven go and sin no more For scarlet sin a scarlet atonement Other persons apologize for not en tering the Christian life because of the inconsistencies of those who profess religion There are thousands of poor farmers They do not know the nature of soils or the proper rotation of crops Their corn is

this man Christmas was siren lating between Copenhagen the Danish West Indies and Washington He was reported an hinting at negotiations fur the sale of the islands and he was said at that ttime to be in conference with sour of those whose names are given in his official report Everybody in authority in both countries disclaimed any con nection with Christmas or knowledge of his mission It was also denied from wellinformed sources that negotiations for thus purchase of the Danish West Indies had been re resumed Then it was suddenly announced that negotiations hud been opened mad an agreement reached on all but one point Shortly after a treaty for the purchase of the islands at a jtriee of 5000000 was sent to the aenate Almost eoineidentally the mysterious Christmas presented to the Danish government his brokerage claim of 500000 and said he ought to be paid the full sum bemuse of his heavy outlays in the United States to get time deal through Mr Christmas mny be a bluffer or a plucked pigeon and it is prob able that he is one or the other but he has started a scandal that can only be disposed of by a prompt and thorough investigation At the jjmc time it is hardly to be expected that deelopedfran congressmen from interi or districts are much disturbed at the prospect of having to explain to their constituents why they voted for the ship subsidy bill if action is forced upon it at this session and in that way their constituents will be benefited Glittering generalities about the restoration of our mer chant marine will not suffice The question will at once follow How will it do it1 and How will it bene fit the western producer Such questions arc not easily answered in a way to convince Therefore the probability is thnt the bill trill be pigeonholed until after the congres sional elections in November when its fate will depend on the way the elections go Cleveland Plain Dealer Speaker Henderson may be able to convince the people of Iris district that he is all right on the tariff question and that they are all wrong but some of them show a disposition to argue a bit before the case is closed There ia some danger how ever so far as Speaker Hendersons seat is

made by some advocate of the shipping grab bill time total annual COAt of our ocean mail ervico under the provisions of the bill will be 4700000 and the an nual receipts from all ocean postage will be 3000000 leaving tin annual deficit of 1700000 on this account The amount to be paid for general subsidies estimated on the basis of the number of vessels in the foreign trade in 1JOO is plated at 1072000 and the amount of the deeprrai tih cries bounty at 47VHiO This would maka total ovprmli ture of 2947000 in execs of tlu postal receipts This may be a fair estimate of the cost at time outset Let us not forpret however that the avowed object of time bill is to bring into existence a great merchant marine If it fails to accomplish this object its advo cates must admit that it is a failure Before the marine can become great under its provisions the cost will be enormous This is virtuallyj admitted by the friends of the bill in the senate when they voted down the Pettus amendment limiting the total expenditure under both its branches to 9000000 a year and when they left the expenditure under the general subsidy absolutely unlimited Nor should we forget that this bill is merely an entering wedge Its purpose in to commit the country to a policy as the London Times has I pointed out Our own history shows that when a policy of aid to any industry has once IMMMI entered upon more and more aid iin demanded and granted and that it iis next to impossible to scrape off the industrial barnacles Time advocates of the subsidy grab I understand this perfectly They have no idea of resting content with the hill as it left the senate It will not he long before theywill appear with the plea that the measure hums not been successful because congress has been too stingy More will have to be granted before we eau have that oversea merchant marine which is supposed to he so essvnfial to the na tional welfare- If at last enough should be grunted to secure such a marine the bounty
