LARGEST CIRCULATION Op AfoV PAPER PUBLISHED IN WARftEN COUNf Y Evening Democrat IT PRIffTS THE NEWS. VOL. 8. NO. 10. A Chicago Minister Preaches a Sensational Sermon. THE UNITED STATES SHOULD ACT. PEARY'S TRIP A FAILURE. TEXAS. The Time Has Come For America in Say That Oppression of Must Declares the Are Not fcebelf but Ftetrlota. CHICAGO, Sept. Rev. Dr. H. W. Thomas caused somewhat of a sen- sation Sunday by declaring from his pulpit that the time has come for Amer- ica to say that the oppression of Cuba by Spain must come to an end. There was a large attendance, of the best peo- ple in the city, and the speaker was frequently interrupted by ootbnrts of applause. Dr. Thomas said in part: "Among the modern nations of the earth Spain is old. She was ouco in the foreground, one of the greatest and proudest and most prosperous of na- tions. But she was always on the Hide of royalty and ecclesiasticism. She be- longed to the old order of government and religion. Other countries have ad- vanced, have heard the call and caught the inspiration of a now light, while Spain has stood still, has gone back- ward. She has not absorbed other peo- ple of the earth and caught inspiration from them. Her religion is Roman Catholic, and is supported by the state. No fault can be found with that. She has a right to her religion, which is one of the great wings or powers of the church. The Protestant religion is tolerated, but worship must be in secret and no notice of meetings may be given. There are protostauts in the country, and an attendance at worship of 8.000 in a population of less than there are men and women who cannot read and write. Education flourishes in Eng- land, Germany, France and Italy, and. I therefore argue that mor- ibund nation that has failed to get mto line with the practice of this great age forfei.fel the right to be a dicta- tor, much les? a luler among the na- tions of the earth. It has the right to exist in ignorance and superstition and to manage its own affairs, but not the right to cruelly oppress its own subjects. "The time has come for America to say that this oppression of Cuba mnst come to an end and that very soon. All our memories are on the side of freedom. When we straggled France held out a helping hand and Russia sent her warships to cruise off New York. Can we supinely stand still and let Spain crush the life out of these struggling patriots I don't call them rebels. They are patriots, as brave as men ever were, and are struggling for the rights of men as we onoe struggled. [Applause. J Governments move slowly; but there is no need to delay the ex- pression of our sympathy. It is fitting that the voice of the pulpit, the press and the people of this great city, the center of the country, should hw heard first." The Belief Expedition Found Him and Companions Starving. ST. JOHNS, N. P., Sept. ant Penry and Hugh J. Lee, with his colored servant Henson, have arrived 011 the steamer Kite. They were found at Whalo sound on Aug. 8 waiting for the Kite and had only ten days pre- viously returned from a great overland expedition, which proved a comparative faftnrojt Independence bay, the most northern part of Greenland was reached early in June, but they were deterred from any great undertaking by insuf- ficiency of food. They were obliged on tins account to abandon the attempt to make further progress, nearly all the dogs perished and the remainder had to be shot, owing to the inability to provide them with anything to eat. Kite met with splendid weather north and started to explore the west of Smith Sound, and traversed the whole coast, visiting Jones Sound, Cape Sa- bine and Littleton Island. Two me- teorites of almost pure iron were taken aboard the Kite, but another weighing about 40 tons they could not get on board. Many sensational stories are current among the crew of the extrem- ities to which Peary, Lee and Henson were reduced. According to the stories, which tho explorers decline to deny, they v ore almost starved and were forced to oat seal and other refuse to keep ahvo. To Free Mrs. Maybrioh. LONDON, Sept.

NASHVILLE, Sept. attempts have been made by mob? to capture Harrison Fuller and Frank Simpson, both negroes, who were the cause of an attack upon the Lexington jail some nights ago. At Lexington a mob of citizens held up a train bound for Cam- den, where it was supposed the negroes had been taken for safekeeping, and forced the conductor to carry them to Hollow Rock. Here they attempted to bulldoze a Nashville, Chattanooga and St. Louis conductor to take them to Camden, but he bluffed them, threat- ened them with the consequence of holding up a mail train, and the mob got off. Some, however, paid their way to Camden and found the negroes were not there, and attempted to hold up a freight train and make the conductor carry them without pay. But they did not succeed and have not yet located the prisoners. These are the same negroes who were attempted to be lynched at Lexington early last week and who fired on the attacking mob, killing and wounding several members. The negroes have been brought to this city for protection. TWO SENSATIONAL MURDERS. Wont Say Anything Except Be Will Do His Best. NEW YORK, Sept.
