r h f 1fruhv 0 K9n1 Herbort Spencer and tucky Louisville Post Apropos of the situation In this State it will bo well for every Ken tuckian to rerend the interview of Herbert Spencer In which after lila visit to this country 1 ho states his opinion of our institutions and people It is from one of the greatest thinkers of the century and is prophetic These are pertinent parts Beyond question said Mr Spencer in respect of mechanical appli ances the American are ahead of all nations If along with your ma terial progress there went equal progress of a higher kind there would remain nothing to be wished That is an ambiguous qualifica itII tell you what I was thinking the other day After pondering over what I have seen of your vast manufacturing and trading establishments the rush of traffic in your street cars and ele vated railways I was suddenly re minded of the Julian republics of tho middle ages and recalled the fact that wliilo there was growing up in them great commercial activl tjiya development of the arts which mane them the envy of Europe and a building of princely mansions which continue to be the admiration of travelers their people were gradually losing their freedom Do you mean this as a suggestion tha ro doing the like ns tQ me jrnu arc You rcIta forms of freedom but so far as in gather there has been a rlrnblo loss of tho substance Utlcal machinery ns It is now has little resemblance to that contemplated at the outset of your political life America exem plifies at tho other end of the social scale a Change analogous to that which has taken place under sundry despotisms You know that in Japan before the recent revolution the thyme ruler the Mikado nominally supreme was practically a puppet in the hands of lila chief minister tho Shogun Hero it seems to me thntii tho sovereign people is fast becom- Ing a puppet which moves and speaks as wirepullers determine If Mr Spencer had foreseen the enactment of tho Goebel election law and tho overthrow of the real liberties of Kentuckians under the forms of law which have been 6etiup to cover the frauds upon ballot and sovereignty and to subject them to a government of politicians for politicians he could not have more exactly described our situation He continues Within the forms of your constitution there has grown up this organization of profes sional politicians altogether uncon templated at the outset which luis become In large measure the ruling powerIdiffusion of political knowledge fit men for free institutions No It is essentially a question of character and only in a secondary degreo a question of knowledge Not lack of information but lack of cer taut moral elements Is tho worst of the mean that people have not a sufficient sense of public duty Well that is ono way of putting- it but there is a more specific way Probably It will surprise you If I SlYI that the American has not I think a sufficiently quick sense of his own claims and at tho samo time rs a necessary consequence not a sufllc ently quick sense of tho claims of othersfor tho two traits are organ ically related I observe that you tolerate various small interferences and dictations which Englishmen are prono to resist It Is this easygoing readiness to permit small tres passes because it would bo trouble some or profitless or unpopular to oppose which leads to the habit of acquiesenco In wrong and the decay of free institutions Free institutions can bo maintained only by citizens each of whom is instant to oppose every illegitimate act every assumption of supremacy every officialcx cess of power however trivial it may seem If as you say of the Amen can ho pauses to consider whether he can afford the time and trouble whether it will pay corruption is sure to creep in As one of your early statesmen

it by ambuscade en iloshtia has two divisions in his army The title division the battleworn com mander will lead himself the other di ision he sends oil to encamp in an am bush on time west side of the cityimf Ait torches no lanterns no sound of heavy battalions hut noWO swarthy warriors moving in silence speaking only in a whisper no clicking of swords against shields lest time watch men of discover it and time stratagem be a failure If time roistering soldier in the Israelitish af iy forgets himself all along time line the word isIIusli Joshua takes the other division tIlt one with which he is to murcli mill puts it on tIme north side of tIn city of Ai and then spends the night in re connoitering in time valley There be is thinking user the fortunes of time coming tiny with something of time feel ings of Wellington the night before Waterloo or of Meatle anti lee the night before Gettysburg There ho stands in the night antI says to himself Yon der is the division in ambush on tIll west side of Ai Here is till division have under my special command on the north side of Ai There is the old city slumbering in its sin Tomorrow Will be the battle Look The morn ing already begins to tip the hills The military officers of Ai look out in tilt morning very early and while they do not see the division in ambush they behold the other divisions of lohna and the er To arms To arms rings through nil time streets of tbe old town maid every sword whether hacked and bent or newly welded is brought out anti all the inhabitants of the city of Ai pour through time gates an infuriated torrent and their cry is Come wen snake quick work with Joshua and his troops So sooner haul these people of Ai come out against the troops of Joshua than Joshua gave such a command as he seldom gaveFulh back Why they could not believe their own ears Is Joshuas courage failing him The retreat is beaten and the Israelites are flying throwing blankets and canteens on every side under this worse than Dull Itun defeat And you ought to hear the soldiers of Ai cheer and cheer But they huzza too soon The men lying in ambush are straining theiryision to get some signal from Joshua that thev may kno v what tirne todfojTIipon time city Joshua takes his burnished spear glittering in the sun like a shaft of doom and points it toward the city and when the nien 1I1 olllltr in the am bush see it with hawklike wool they drop upon Ai maid without stroke of sword or stab of spear tale the city and put it to the torch So much for tbe division that was in ambush How about the division tinder Joshuas command Xo sooner does Joshua stop in the flight than all his men Stop with him and us he wheels they wheel for in a voice of thunder he crietlhHalt one strong arm driving back a torrent of flying troops Anti then as he points hislcllr through the golden light toward that fated city his troops know that they are to start for it What a scene it was when the division in ambush which had taken time city marched down against the men of Ai on tilt one side and the troops under Joshua doubled up their enemies from time other side and the men of Ai were caught between these two hurricanes of Israelitish courage thrust before and behind stabbed in breast and back ground between time upper and the nether mill stones of Gods indignation Woe to the city of Ai Cheer for Israel Lesson the first There is such a timing as victorious retreat Joshuas falling back was tIme first chapter in his successful besiegement And there are times in your life when the best timing you can do is to Fop You were once the victim of strong drink The demijohn and the decanter were your fierce foes They came down upon you with greater fury than the men of Ai upon the men of Joshua Your only safety is to get away from them Your dissipating companions will conic around you for vour overthrow Hun for your life Fall buick Fall back Irons the drinking saloon Fall back from time wine patty

reading Bolingbroke An drew Jackson Davis tracts Tyndals Glasgow university address Drop them and run You will be an infidel be fore you die unless you quit that These men of Ai will be too much for you Turn your back on the rank anti file of unbelief Fly before they cut you with their swords and transfix you with their javelins There are people who have been welluigh ruined because they risked a foolhardy expedi tion in the presence of mighty anti overwhelming temptations and the men of Ai made a morning meal of themSo also there is victorious retreat in the religious world Thousands of times

time direful overthrow of hell and our Io hulls eternal victory On his head be all the crowns his hands be all the scepters At his feet be all the human hearts and here Lord is one of them Lesson the Fccond The triumph of time wicked is short Did you ever see an army in a panic There is nothing so uncontrollable If you bail stood at Long bridge Washington during the opening of our civil war you would know what it is to see an army run And when those men of Ai looked out tmrpedescent of the men of Ai upon tIme men t Joshua Hilt their exhilaration w brief for the tide of battle turned all

ate the roll of bad men who prospered and I see how short was their prosperity For awhile like the men of Ai they went from conquest to conquest but after awhile disaster rolled back upon them and they were divided into three parts Misfortune took their property the grave took their body and the lost world took their soul 1 am always in terested in the building of palaces of dissipation I like to have them built of the best granite anti leave the rooms made large and lo have time pillars made very firm God is going to con quer them and they will lie turned into asylums and art galleries and churches The stores in which fraudulent men do business the splendid banking institu tions where the president ami cashier nut all their property in their wives hounds and then fail for 503000 mill these Institutions are to become tIme places where honest Christian morn do business Lesson time third How much may be accomplished by lying in ambush for opportunities Are you hypercritical of Joshuas maneuver Do you say that it was cheating for him to take that city by ambuscade Was it wrong for Washington to kindle camptires on Jersey heights giving the impression to the opposing force that a great army was encamped therewhen there was none at all 1 answer if the war was right then Joshua was right in luis stratagem lie violated no flag of truce He broke no treaty but by a lawful ambuscade captured the city of Ai Oh that we nil kncvr how to lie in nmbush for opportunities to serve God The best of our opportunities do not lie on the surface but are secreted By tact by stratagcti by Christian ambuscade you tony take almost any castle of sin for Christ Come up toward men with a regular hesiegement of argument and you will be defeated but just wait until the door of their hearts is set ajar or they are off their guard or their severe caution is jiway from home and then drop in 1r them from a Christian ambuscade There has been ninny a man up to his chin in

icicle You can take man lor Christ if you know how to get at him Do not send word lo him that tomorrow at ten oclock you propose to open your iiat cries upon him lint come on him by a rkillfnl persevering God directed am hIlHnolt Lesson the fourth The importance of taking good aim There is Joshua but bow mire those people in ambush up yonder to know when they are to drop on the city utah how mire these men around Joshua to know when they are tostop their flight nnd advance There must be some signal a signal to stop the one division and lo start the other Joshua with a spear on which were ordinarily hung the colors of battle points toward the city He stands in such a conspicuous position anti there is so much of tIme morning light drip ping from that spear tip that all around tIme horion they see it It was as much as to say There is tilt city Tltle it God knows and we know that a great deal of Christian attack amounts to nothing simply because we do not take good aim Nobody knows noel we do not know ourselves which point we want to take when we ought to make up our minds what God will us to do and point our spear in that direc tion and then hurl our body mind soul time eternity at that one target In our pulpits pews and Sunday School and prayer meetings we want to get a reputation for saying pretty things ntl so we point our spear to ward time flowers or we want a reputa lion for saying sublime things and we point our spear toward tIme stars or we went to get II reputation for his torical knowledge and we point our spiar toward the past or we want to- got a reputation for great liberality so we wing our spear all around while there is the old world proud rebellious and armed against all righteousness mad instead of running any farther away from its pursuit we ought to turn around plant our foot in time strength of the eternal God lift the old cross and point it in the direction of the worlds conquest till time redeemed of earth marching up from

as far aa the people are concerned Our fr rying k cause of their oneness in all mat theIIwere in terested We have for years charged that Democrats and Republicans began and ended with the activity of a campaign just preceding every election Democratic and Republi can fights have been born of greed campal2nfunds promisee people may be robbed There does not today exist in the Government a single evil the responsibility for which is not directly chargeable to both Democratic and Republican parties class legislation with its Trconsequent incubating autocratic wealth favoritism to corporations with its centralization of wealth and power given to trusts and monopolies Does any sane mazi believe that any monetary reform would follow Democratic success Would banks of issue be abolished Read the history of Democratic legislation in Congress for the last S twenty years Would trusts and monopolies be repressed Demo crats and Republicans are alike re 1 sponsible for their existence The campaign funds of each are sup plied from the coffers of their licensed extortions There are as many trust and monopoly nabobs professing allegiance to the Dem ocrutic party us are to be found in the Republican party Both parties profess platform hostility to these vampires Would the shadow of Tammany grow Itsi Would Hill Gorman Whitney and others be FpeechlessWould ol Bryans fouryear term own a mile of railroad a foot of telegraph Would the Referendum prevail anywhere Would there be one dollar of irredeemable paper money on this continent If none of thee things are to be accomplished then what interest has any Populist in Mr Bryans election Suppose our people should take Mr Bryan and Bryan should be defeated what have we gained The only vital element of reform in the nation would be
