ALTON B PARK ERS ADDRESS OF AC CEPTANCE AUGUST 10TH 1904 IIt seems desirable to call atten to the fact that the people in whom all power resides have seen fit through the medium ofthe Coo stitutiun to limit the government al power conferred and to say to departments created by it Thus far shalt thou go landno farther To secure the ends sought the peo ple have by the Constitution sepa rated and distributed among the three departments of government the executive legislative and judi cialceartain powers and it is tIt duty of those administering eath department so to act as to preserve rather than to destroy the potency of the coordinate branches of the government and thus secure the exercise of all the powers conferred by the people Thomas Jefferson in a letter William C Jarvis touching the perpetuity of our institutions writ ten many year after he had retired to private life said If the three powers of our government maintain their mutual independence o each other it may last long but not so if either can assume the au thority of the other It must be confessed that in the course of our history executives have employed powers not belonging to them statutes have been passed that were expressly forbidden by the Constitution and statutes have been set aside as unconstitutional when it was difficult to point out the prc visions said to be offended against in their enactment all this has beei- done witha good purpose no doubt but in disregard neverthe less of the fact that ours is a gov ernment of laws not of men deriv ing its just powers from the con sent of the governed If we would have our government to continue during the ages to come for the ben efit of those who shall succeed us we must ever be on our guard against the dangers of usurpation of that authority which resides in the whole people DAVID B HILL announces that he will retire from politics on Jan uary ist and will accept no posi tion if Judge Parker is elected Mr Hill has not been of a very retiring

here Elijah is 1the question God often has to ask us God Became the Teacher The Christian often snakes a long journey of It to Gods schooleven as did Elijah But it is a blessed place to come John 1426 1613 1 Cor 212 God sought to turn Elijahs thoughts away from self It took the rockrending winds the mountainmoving earthquake and the fierce fire to turn Elijahs thoughts tc God Oh how hard it Is to bring the soul to listen to God How God has to almost strip us naked and afflict us sore before we wilt turn from self to Him It Was the Place of Encouragement It was humiliating to Elijah to realize that bisboast of standing alone for Goc was 7000 below the true number but surely he was rejoiced and encouragfc to know how many faithful ones there were Do you ever feel you stand alone for God Get away in His school and let Him give you the correct census Alone Never for Jesus is ever present Matt 2820 He is ever working with us Mark 1620 by His Holy Spirit John 16711 It Was the Place of Fresh Commission When Elijah fled from Jezebel he lost his commission He needed It re newed The runaway servant of God generally loses his commission and it it only as we get alone with Gcd that we may receive reappointment in the Lords work Gods first word to Elijah was Go return on thy way Elijah must be submissive to Gods rill Obedient to His command God made Elijah retrace his steps and many a Christian has to do this very thing be fore he can do Godswork It tales submission and consecration and obedience to do this And when Elijah was read to go back when his spirit of self Im portance had been subdued when be was wholly given to Gods will when he was eager to obey then God revealed His plans for him THE GOLDEN TEXT Fear thou not for I am with thee Immanuel God with us Matt 123
