SUNDAY WITH THE ADVENTS. A Tremendous Crowd at the Camp of the Seventh-Day Adventists. SYNOPSIS 01 SESK0HB .PBEA0HED, Which Commenced at an Early Hour In tbe Morafos aad Terariulis at Might Pleasant Weather; �sit At* Beet or Order The during Service* To-TMy-Tke Baptism of aKaaibnlntheCreek Ta-Day. Sunday dawned olear and pleasant but much cooler. EverytUngtender} to make it pleasant - for the tenters and T those who came to hear. : At ttkv-esrlf hour of half past five a. fn. Dr. J. H. Kellogg, of Battle Creek, Hlqb., spoke upon the, subject of "Medical Mmikmary Wash*!,' teaching people to care for"their phyaasatnature in a way to preserve health, w*f .practiced by Moses. Christ spent mjash time in healing the sio�< Great fieluar* opening in all pari* of the world foi^raiaaiODary work of this'kind,. The work of tbjia people Is maoh more extensive than we had supposed. -Is- is being, eai i led Into nearly all part* of tbe world. They, believing as they-Uot that ttme^ia short, and that they hare an important work to do, are laying plans to enlarge |ha, work in every direction.- Publishing, houses are being established in many \ part* of the world and missionaries are being sent out' preparing for more in the near future. In the forenoon Elder Van Horne, by a request sent up, preached upon the subject of tbe Sabbath, introdsaiag^iiis remarks by reading Mark 2an,38.,/.There axe two things^ noticed In the*it verse*. First, the Son of man. Second, the Sabbath was made. J Now, If it was made, who made it ? . All agree that the Son of man or Chriat made the world.. We find that stated plainly In John,Jst Chapt., and aiao in Hob., 1st Chapt. � We can read of Chriat in every nook in the Bible. He was with the Father before the world was. Chriat says he Is the Lord of lbs Sabbath. Tbe Sabbath was made atoreation. It was kept by Christ, and by the Apostles. Tbe Sabbath was and ever will -be, the Seventh day. Tie Roman church changed It. Tbey say they did it and that it is a badge of honor and power to them. Textaof scripture were read and also extracts from Catholic work* to show that these thinga are true. In the afternoon the large tent wis Utterly filled to its utmost seating capacity and a Urge number stood on the outside while Elder Jones spoke for over one hour and half upon tbe subject of Church and State. There ia a great effort on the part of many in our country to have religion taught in the public schools. Bill* have been before oongr*** during tbe last two years and millions of names baoking them np, praying Congress to legislate upon measures that will unite State and Church as surely as it wss in the fourth century. We oppose this measure btoanae it is wicked. It ia trying to compel men to be Christians. They ask to have religion taught in the public schools by law then somebody will bars to decide what religion. It is said the Christian religion; very well, shall it be aa tbe Methodists or tbe Baptists teach, or shall it be a* the Catbo-lioa teach it? Mr. Blair, Senator from New Hampshire, who Introduced the measure into Congress, says a textbook csn be made defining what shall bounder-stood to be tbe principles of the Christian religion tbat can harmonize with the views of Protestants, Catholics and those who do not act with either. That is, those who sre denominated infldels. You oau judge wbat kind of a religion we will have when set forth and defined to agree with all these. After the meeting a petition was circulated praylog Congress to make no changes in tbe constitution as regards any religious question, but leave all the civil right, now guaranteed to worship God a* tbey may please. The recent decision of the Wisconsin court that the Protestant version of the Bible was sectarian and should not be read In the public schools wss correct. It was not that the Bible wss sectarian, but one version of it. If the Protestant Bible can bo read In tbe public schools, then if the Catholics were in tbe majority in any locality should tbey not bare the right to introduce their's? Certainly. 'It is" no more right "to tax Csthollosto support Protestsnt religion than it is to tsx Protestants to support Cstholio religion. The speaker's.argnment* were so .eon-vincina that it must have been olear to all that he was right. Elder Jones oontinned tbe subject In the evening. He first showed that those who are praying to have re-, llglon taught by law have left the true souroe of power to make men religious. The troe power is in the gospel; Roman ! :10. Men should be left free to choose for themselves. Then they are men. Those who ask for the law to compel men to be religions propose to remove all temptation. This ia not what Is iutended by-God. The Bible says, "Blessed is the man that endureth temptation." And again, "My brethren oount it all Joy when retail into divers temptations." Christ was tempted.. When temptations come to the christian he takes Christ by faith ado In his strength overcomes and comes out of the conflict stronger for tbe warfare before him. Aa we have said before, this people preach Christ a* we never have heard others, In the afternoon it might have been thought that it was more of a political tenor then was expected, but it was seen in the evening that It was only a prelude to what he wished to show, when contrasting the work to be done by the gospel end that proposed' to be done by these so-called National Reformers. We must not omit to speak of the order that waa maintained, notwithstanding there were so many on the grounds during all day Sunday and evening. We think the tenter* had no reason to complain st the de portment of those who came on the grounds, All wss oivil snd harmonious. Knots of people could be seen here and there, after the services closed, discussing tbe merits of the truth presented. To-day lathe Isst day of the camp meeting. This evening will be the last preaching service. To-day,at 10 o'clock, preaching upon theaubjeet of baptism after which a large number were baptized in the creek near by. Upon the whole, we are gl ad they came and can bnt be sorry their stay has been so brief. They have aome views tbat are not in harmony with the popular theology, It is trne, hat all who have heard must see thst they take no position without giving Bible troth to substantiate it. From their book aland has been sold many of their works treating directly upon the viewa they hold. Wbyahould any think it strange thst there should be an aggressive people coming np teaching obedience to God in all he has commanded ? It does look strange to us to see people keeping the seventh dsy for the Sabbath. But what says the Bible. Let Christian* search carefully and sot as God directs. We were startled when the speaker said yesterday that a Catholio priest had offered one thousand dollars to the one who would show one passage where any command whatever ia given in the Bible for Buuday or Brat day keeping. Bnt upon reflection and inquiry we find they (the Catholics) do olalm tbat It ia purely a church ordioanee. Of course, all in honesty and desire to know the truth we inquire by what authority did they do it? We, aa Protestants, profess to take the Bible aa our guide. There ia one thing certain, a people with the zeal and knowledge these appear to have, and certainly manifest, will be heard snd none ean binder it. We shall endeavor to watch their work in tbe future and see what the development* sre. Observer. Funerals.
