Of course every sensible person knows that the present Oon Dillon of affairs in Europe is such As to make War s certainty in the future the fighting will have to begin before the aver age american will give his attention to the cablegram. Blaine meets the Bluff. The rapture in the diplomatic relations Between this government and Italy under Tbs old regime would have been regarded As s most serious matter now it looked upon Asl Talian Baron fava the italian minister at Washington for the alleged reason that his a legitimate action was a was ordered by his government to withdraw from diplomatic relations with the United states and leave his Secretary of legation in charge of current business. In his letter of withdrawal Baron fava says that the reparation demanded was 1 a a the official Assurance by the Federal gov eminent that the guilty parties should be brought to in Stine a and 2 a the recognition in principle that an indemnity is due the relatives of the victims a that As a a the Federal government did not think that it would take this View of the Case it declined to take the aforesaid demand into or. Blaine in Hie reply says that the demand was changed in phrase and that Baron fava is a a assuredly under a grave when he declares that the United government declined to take this these Pond demand under Oona iteration a a a that the United states so far from refusing has distinctly recognized the principle of indemnity to those italian subjects who May have been wronged by violation of the rights secured to them on Der the treaty and the original presentation of the matter was merely the declaration of Premier de Bandini that Italy a right to demand and obtain punishment of the Borderers end indemnity for the victims or.

That or. Blaine has the beet of the Oon tas Dion end has mat the Banff made is apparent to everybody. Or. Talmage a masterly contrast of the effects of christianity and agnosticism. The glorious results of n living Faith. What has infidelity done new Yolk april 5. A continuing Bis course of sermons on a the ten plague of the cities a Rev. Or. Talmage today took for his subject Quot the plague of the discourse was delivered to Large and appreciative audiences at the Brooklyn Academy of music in the Forenoon and the new York Academy of music in the evening. The text was romans Iii 4, Quot it god be True every Man a that is if god says one thing and the whole human race says the opposite Panl would accept the divine veracity. But there Are Many in our time who have dared arraign the almighty for falsehood. Infidelity is not Only a plague it is the Mother of plagues. It seems from what we Bear on All sides that the Christian religion is a huge Blunder that the mosaic account of the creation is an Absurdity Large enough to throw All nations into rollicking Guffaw that Adam and eve never existed that the ancient flood and Noah Sark were impossibilities Fiat there never was a Miracle that the Bible is the Friend of cruelty of murder of polygamy of All forms of base crime that the Christian religion is woman a tyrant and Many a Boulti flotation that the Bible from lid to lid is a fable a cruelty a Humbug a Sham a lie that the martyrs who died for its truth were miserable dupes that the Church of Jesus Christ is properly gazetted As a fool that when Thomas Carlyle the septic said a the Bible is a Noble Book a he was dropping into imbecility that when Theodore Parker declared in music Hall Boston a never a boy or girl in All Christendom was profited by that great Book a be was becoming very weak minded that it is some thing to bring a Blush to the Cheek of every Patriot that John Adams the father of american Independence declared a the Bible is the Best Book in All the world a and that lion hearted Andrew Jackson turned into a snivelling Coward when he said a that Book sir is the Rock on which our Republic rests a and that Daniel Webster abdicated the throne of Bis intellectual Power and resigned his logic and from being the great expounded of the Constitution and the great lawyer of his age turned into an idiot when he said a my heart As surfs and reassures me that the gospel of jeans Christ must be a divine reality. From the time that at my mothers feet or on my fathers knee i first Learned to Lisp verses from the sacred writings they have been my daily study and vigilant contemplation and if there is anything in my style or thought to be commended the credit is due to my kind parents in instilling into my mind an Early love of the scriptures a and that William h. Seward the Diplomatist of the Century Only showed Hia puerile to when he declared a the whole Hope of human Progress is suspended on the Ever growing influences of the Bible a and that it is Wisest for us to take that Book from the throne in the affections of uncounted multitudes and put it under feet to be trampled upon by hatred and hissing contempt and that your old father was hoodwinked and cajoled and cheated and be fooled when he leaned on this As a staff after his hair grew Gray and his hands were tremulous Aud his Steps shortened of he came up to the verge of the grave and that your Mother sat with a pack of lies on her Lap while Reading of the better country and of the ending of All her aches Aud pains and reunion not Only with those of you who stood around her with the children she had buried with infinite heart ache so that she could read no More until she took off her spectacles and Wigt de from them the heavy Mist of Many tears. Alas that for forty and fifty years they should have walked under this delusion and had it under their Pillow when they Lay a dying in the Back room and asked that some words from the vile Page might be cat upon the Tombstone under the Shadow of the old country meeting House where they sleep today waiting for a resurrection that will never Home. This Book having deceived them and having deceived the mighty intellects of Tbs past must not be allowed to deceive our larger mightier vaster More stupendous intellects. And so out with the Book from the court room where it is used in the solemnization of testimony. Out with it from under the foundation of Church and Asylum. Out with it from the Domestic Circle. Gather together ail the bibles the children a bibles the family bibles those newly bound and those with lid nearly worn out and pages almost obliterated by the fingers Long ago turned to dust bring them All together and let us a a Bonfire of them and by it warm our cold criticism and after that turn under with the Plo share of Public indignation the polluted ashes of that loathsome adulterous obscene cruel and death Ful Book which is so antagonistic to Many a Liberty and woman a Honor and the worlds happiness. Agnostics attack the Skuy live. Now that is the substance of what infidelity proposes and declares and the attack on the Bible is accompanied by great Joco sity and there is hardly any subject a bout which More mirth is kindled than about the Bible. I like fun no Man was Ever built with a Keener appreciation of it. There is health in laughter instead of harm a physical health in extol health moral health spiritual health a provided you laugh at the right thing. The morning is Jocund. The Indian with its own Mist baptizes the Cataract Minnehaha or laughing water. You have not kept your eyes open or your ears Alert if you have not seen the smile or heard the forests clap their Shmiria or the Orchards in Blossom week Aglee with re Dolence. But there is a laugh ter which is death Ful then la a laughter which has the rebound of despair. It not healthy to Giggle about god or chuckle about eternity or Smirk about the things of the immortal soul. You know what caused the Accident Yean ago on the Hudson River Railroad. It was an intoxicated Man who Lor a joke pulled the string of the air Brake and stopped the train at the most dangerous Point of the journey. But the lightning train not knowing there was any impediment in the Way came Down crushing out of the victims the immortal souls that went speeding instantly to god and judgment it was Only a joke. He thought it would be such fan to Stop the train. He stopped it. And so infidelity is chiefly anxious to atop the Long train of the Bible and the Long train of the churches and the Long train of Christian influences while coming Down upon us Are death judgment and eternity coming a thousand Miles minute cosning with More Force than All the avalanches that Ever slipped from the Alps coming with More strength than All express trains that Ever whistled or shrieked or thundered across the continent. Now in this jocularity of infidel thinkers i cannot join and i propose to give you some reasons Why i cannot be an infidel and so i will try to help out of this present condition any who May have been struck with the awful plague of scepticism. First i cannot be an infidel because infidelity has no Good substitute for the Consolation it proposes to take away. You know the a Are millions of people who get their chief Consolation from this Hook. What would you think of a crusade of this sort suppose a Man should seso Ive that be would organise a conspiracy to destroy All the medicines from All the apothecaries and from All the hospitals of the Earth. The work is Dona the medicines Are taken and they Are thrown into the River or the Lake or the sea. Gang Renoa mob amputated. He says till for Ether i of for chloroform in the doctors say a Why they Are All destroyed we done to have any More chloroform or Ether Cut i have got something a great Deal better. Ill read you a pamphlet against James y. Simpson the discoverer of chloroform As an Alucs tactic and against drs. Agnew and Hamilton and Hosack and Mott and Harvey and a a says the Man a i must have some Quot no Quot say the doctors a they Are All destroyed we have got something a great Deal a what is that a fun about medicines. Lie Down Allye patients in Bellevue Hospital and Stop your groaning Allye broken hearted of All the cities and quit your crying we have the Catholic on at last Here is a dose of wit Here is a strengthening plaster of sarcasm Here is a bottle of rib Aldry that you Are to keep Well shaken up and take a spoonful of it after each meal and if that does not cure you Here is solution of blasphemy in which Yon May Bathe and Here is a tincture of derision. Tickle the Skeleton of death with a repartee i make the King of terrors cackle i for All the agonies of All the Ages a joke millions of people willing with uplifted hand toward heaven to affirm that the Goepel of Jesus Christ is full of Consolation for them and yet infidelity proposes to take it away giving nothing absolutely nothing except fun. Is there any greater height or depth or length or breadth or immensity of meanness in All gods universe infidelity is a religion of a a done to is there a god done to knowl is the soul immortal done to knowl if we a bold meet each other in the future world will we recognize each other done to knowl a religion of a a done to know for the religion of i know a a i know in whom i have believed a a i know that my redeemer infidelity proposes to Sanbe Tintea religion of awful negatives for oar religion of glorious positives showing right before us a world of reunion and ecstasy and High companionship and glorious worship and san tendons Victory the mightiest Joy of Earth not High enough to reach to the base of the Himalaya of uplifted splendor awaiting All those who on Wing of Christian Faith will soar toward it. Have you heard of the conspiracy to put ont All the lighthouses on the coast do you know that on a certain night of next month Eddystone Lighthouse Bell Rock Lighthouse Sherry Ore Lighthouse Mon tank Lighthouse Hatteras Lighthouse new London Lighthouse Barnegat Lighthouse and the 640 lighthouses on the Atlantic and Pacific coasts Are to be extinguished a ooh a you say a what will become of the ships on that night what will be the Fate of the one million sailors following the sea what will be the doom of the millions of passengers who will arise to put Down such a conspiracy a every Man woman and child in America and the world. Bat that is Only a fable. That is what infidelity is trying to do put out All the lighthouses on the coast of eternity letting the soul go up the Quot Narrows of death with no Light no Comfort no peace All that coast covered with the blackness of darkness. Instead of the great Lighthouse a Glowworm of wit a firefly of Joco sity. Which do you like the better o voyager for eternity the firefly or the Lighthouse what a Mission infidelity has started on Tho extinguish ment of lighthouses the breaking up of lifeboats the dismissal of All the pilots the turning of the inscription on your child a grave into a farce and lie. Walter Scott so old mortality a chisel in hand went through the Laud to Cut out into plainer letters the half obliterated inscriptions on the tombstones and it was a Beautiful Mission infidelity spends its time with Hammer and chisel trying to Cut out from the tombstones of your Lead All the Story of resurrection and heaven. It is the iconoclast of every Village graveyard and of every City cemetery and of Westminster Abbey. Instead of Christian Consolation for the dying a freezing sneer. Instead of prayer a Grimace. Instead of Paul a triumphant Defiance of death a going out you know not where to Stop you know not when to do you know not what. That is infidelity. Tub false left i of infidelity. Furthermore 1 cannot be an infidel because of the false charges in Fidelity is All the time making against the Bible. Perhaps the slander that has made the most impression and that some christians have not been intelligent enough to deny is that the Bible favors polygamy. Does the god of the Bible uphold polygamy or did he How Many wives did god make for Adam he made one wife. Does not your common sense Tell you when god started the marriage institution he started it As he wanted it to continue if god had favored polygamy he could have created for Adam five wives or Tea wives or Twenty wives just As easily of he made one. At the very first of the Bible god shows himself in favor of monogamy and antagonistic to polygamy. Genesis ii 24, a therefore shall a Man leave his father and Mother and shall Cleave unto his not Hia wives Ida wife. How Many wives did god spare for Noah in the Ark two and two the Birds two and two the attle two and two the Lions two and two he human race. If the god of the Bible bad favored a multiplicity of wives he would have spared a plurality of wives. When god first launched the human race he gave Adam one wife. At the second launching of the human race be spares for Noah one wife for Ham one wife for Shem one wife for Japhet one wife. Does that look As though god favored polygamy in Leviticus vill 10, god thunders Hia prohibition of More than one wife. God permitted polygamy. Yes just As he permits today a murder and theft and arson and All kinds of crime. He permits these things As you Well know he does not Sanction them. Who would dare to say he sanctions them because the presidents of the United states have permitted polygamy in Utah you Are not therefore to conclude that they patronised it that they approved it when on the contrary they denounced it. Ail of gods ancient Israel knew that the god of the Bible was against polygamy for in the four Hundred and thirty years of their stay in Egypt there is Only one Case of polygamy recorded Only one. All the mighty men of the Bible stood aloof from polygamy except those who falling into the crime were eds Stison within an Inch of their lives. Adam Aaron Noah Joseph Joshua Samuel Monog mists. But you say a did no to David and Solomon favor polygamy a yes and did they not get Well punished for it read the lives of those two men and you will come to the conclusion that All the attributes of gods nature were against their behaviour. David suffered for his crimes in the caverns of Dullam and Mas Sada in the wilderness of Maha aim in the bereavement of Zik lag. The bedouins after him sickness after him Absalom after him Ahithophel after him Adonijah after him the edomite after him the syrians after him the Moabite after him death after him the lord god almighty after him. The poorest peasant in All the Empire married to the plainest jewess was happier than the King in his marital Misbehaviour. How did Solomon get along with polygamy read his warnings in proverbs read his self disgust in Ecclesiastes. He throws up his hands in loathing and cries out a vanity of vanities All is vanity a his seven Hundred wives nearly pestered the life ont of him. 8ok>-omon got Well paid for his crimes Well paid. I repeat that All the mighty men of the scriptures were aloof from polygamy save As they were pounded and flailed and Cut to pieces for to bpm insult to holy marriage. If the Bible is the Friend of polygamy Why is it that in All the lands where the Bible predominates polygamy is forbidden and in the lands where there is no Bible it is favored. Polygamy All Over China All Over India All Over Africa All Over Persia All Over Heathen Dom save of the missionaries have done their work while polygamy does not exist in England and the United states except in Defiance of Law. The Bible abroad god honoured monogamy. Pictures Are the More honoured nere la eve a perfect woman As perfect a woman As could be made by a perfect god. Here is Deborah with her womanly Arm hurling a Host into Battle. Here is Miriam leading the israeli Tish orchestra on the Banks of the red sea. Herein Motherly Hannah with her own Loving hand replenishing the wardrobe of her son Samuel the Prophet. Here is Abigail kneeling at the foot of the Mountain until the four Hundred wrathful men at the sight of her Beauty and prowess halt halt a Hurricane stopped at the sight of a water Lily a Dew drop dashing Back Niagara. Here is Ruth putting to shame All the modern Slang about mothers in Law As she turns her Back on her Home and her country and faces wild beasts and exile and death that she May be with Naomi her husbands Mother. Ruth the Queen of the Harvest Fields. Ruth the grandmother of David. Ruth the Anc Estress of Jesus Christ. The Story of her Virtues and her life sacrifice is the most Beautiful pastoral Ever written. Here is Vashti defying the bacchanal of a thousand Drunken lords and Esther willing to throw her life away that she May deliver her people. And Here is Dorcas the sunlight of eternal Fame gilding her philanthropic Needle and the woman with perfume in a Box made from the Hills of Alabastro pouring the holy chrism on the head of Christ the Aroma lingering All Down the corridor of the centuries. Here is Lydia the Mercha teas of Tyrian purple immortalized for her Christian behaviour. Here is the widow with two mites More famous than the pea Bod is and the Lenores of All the Ages while Here comes in slow of gait and with careful attendants and with Especial Honor and High favor leaning on the Arm of inspiration one who is the Joy and Pride of any Home so rarely fortunate As to have one an old Christian grandmother grandmother Lois. Who has More worshippers today than any being that Ever lived on Earth except Jesus Christ Mary. For what purpose did Christ perform his first Miracle upon Earth to relieve the embarrassment of a womanly housekeeper at the falling Short of a beverage. Why did Christ break up the silence of the Tomb and tear off the shroud and rip no the rocks it was to Stop the bereavement of the two Bethany Sisters. For whose Comfort was Christ most anxious in the Hoar of dying Ecru citation for a woman an old woman a wrinkle faced woman a woman who in other Days had held him in her arms his first Friend his last Friend of it is very Apt to be his Mother. All the pathos of the Ages compressed into one utterance a behold thy does the Bible antagonize woman a Call Fob the witnesses. If the Bible is so antagonistic to woman How do Yon account for the difference in woman a condition in China and Central Africa and her condition in England and America there is no difference except that which the Bible makes. In lands where there is no Bible she is hitched like a beast of Burden to the plows she carries the Hod she submits to indescribable indignities. She must be kept in a private apartment and if she come Forth she must to carefully hooded and religiously veiled As though it were a shame to be a woman. you not know that the very first thing the Bible does when it comes into a new country is to strike off the shackles of woman a serfdom o woman where Are your chains today hold up both your arms and let us see your Handcuffs. Of we see the Handcuffs. They Are bracelets of Gold bestowed by husbandry or fatherly or brotherly or sisterly or loverly affection. A loosen the warm Robe from your neck o woman and let us see the Yoke of your bondage. Of i find the Yoke a Carcanet of Silver or a string of carnelian or Cluster of pearls that must Gall you very much. How bad you must All have it. Binge you put the Bible on your stand in the sitting room has the Bible been to you o woman a curse or a Blessing Why is it that a woman when she is troubled will go to her worst enemy the Bible Why do you not go for Comfort to some of the great infidel books Spinoza so ethics a or in me so natural history of religion a or Paine s Quot age of reason a or Dedrow a pose Yon count them on your Teh Foffi Flers. Quot of a you say a not quite no ranch As Well then count them on the fingers of one hand. A ooh a you aay a we done to want quite so much room As in phase then you halt and count on one Finger the name of any institution founded by infidelity supported entirely by infidelity pronounced against god and the Christian religion yet toiling to make the world better. Not one not Onel is infidelity so poor so starve Ling so mean so useless get out you miserable pauper of the universe crawl into some rat Hole of everlasting nothingness. Infidelity standing today amid the suffering groaning dying nations and yet doing absolutely nothing save trying to impede those who Are toiling until they fall exhausted into their Graves in trying to make the world better. Gather up All the work All the merciful work that infidelity has Ever done add it All together and there is not so much nobility in it As in the smallest Bead of that sister of Charity who last night went up the dark Alley of the town put a Jar of Jelly for an invalid appetite on a broken stand and then Knelt on the bars floor praying the mercy of Christ upon the dying soul. Infidelity scrapes no lint for the wounded bakes to bread for the hungry shakes up no Pillow for the sick rouses no Comfort for the bereft gilds no grave for the dead. While Christ our Christ our wounded Christ our risen Christ the Christ of this old fashioned Bible blessed be his glorious name forever our Christ stands this Hoar pointing to the Hospital or to the Asylum saying a i was sick and be gave me a Couch i was lame Audye gave me a Crutch i was Blind and be pay so caned my Eye Igov i was orphaned and be mothered my soul i was lost on the mountains and be brought me Home Lana Smuch Asye did it to one of the Leas tot these be did it to i thank god that this plague of infidelity will be stayed. Many of thoe who hear me now by the holy ghost upon their hearts will Faaee to be scoffers and will become disciples and the Day will arrive when All nations will accept the scriptures. The Book is going to keep right on until the fires of the last Day Are kindled. Some of them will begin on one aids Aud some on the other Side of the old Book. They will not find a bundle of Loose manuscripts easily consumed like tinder thrown into the fire. When the free of the last Day Are kindled some will on this dict from genesis toward revelation and others will Burn on this Side from revelation toward genesis and in ail their Way they will not find a single chapter or a single verse out of place. That will be the first time we can afford to do without the Bible what will be the use of the Book of genesis descriptive of How the world was made when the world is destroyed what will be the use of the prophecies when they Are All fulfilled what will be the to self the evangelistic or Pauline description of Jesus Christ when we see him face to free what will be the use of his photograph when we have met him in glory what will be the use of the Lido of revelation standing As you will with your foot on the Glassy sea and your hand on the ringing Harp and your forehead Cuba plated with eternal Coronation amid the Ameth Stine and twelve gated glories of heaven the Emerald dashing its Green against the Beryl and the Beryl dashing its Bine again the Sapphire and Che Sapphire throwing its Light on the Jacinth and the Jacinth dashing its fire against the Chry Sopriana and you and i standing in the glories of ten thousand sunsets. A patient wakes up at Midnight in a paroxysm of distress and wants an Anodyne. The Mil not abroad god abhorred poly a ooh a says the nurse a the Anodyne Are i destroyed we have no drops to give Olott of Christian womanhood. Another false charge which infidelity has made against the Bible a that it is antagonistic to woman that it enjoins her degradation and belittles her Mission. Under this impression Many woman have been overcome of this plague of infidelity. Is the Bible the enemy of woman come Inte the picture gallery the louvre the Roo instead of that ill read you a Book on the absurdities of morphine and on the absurdities of All the Man continues to writhe in pain and the none says a a in la continue to read you he discourses on Anodyne the cruelties of Anodyne the indecency is of Anodyne the absurdities of Anodyne. For Yoor Annm of to aim Vou a i Ray a la the Ramas or any one of the 260 volumes off Tater Jno the silly Deinabo woman persists in hang my about the Bible verses a let not your heart be troubled a a fall things work together for Good a a sweeping May endure for a night a a i am the resurrection a a peace furthermore rather than invite i resist this plague of infidelity because it has wrought no positive Good for the world and is always a hindrance. I ask Yon to mention the names of the merciful and the educational institutions which infidelity founded and is supporting and has sap ported All the Way through institutions pronounced against god and the Christian religion and yet pronounced in behalf of suffering humanity. What Are the names of them certainly not the United states Christian commission or the sanitary com Mission for Christian George h. Stuart was the president of the one and Christian Henry w. Bellows was the president of the other. Compare fib hospitals and colleges. Where Are the asylums and merciful institutions founded by infidelity and supported by infidelity pronounced against god and the Bible and yet doing work for the alleviation of suffering infidelity is so very loud in its Braggadocio it must have some to mention. Certainly if you come to speak of educational institutions it is not Yale it a not Harvard it is not Princeton it is not Middletown it is not Cam Bridge or Oxford it is not any institution from which a diploma would not be a disgrace. you Point to the German universities As exceptions i have to Tell you that All the German universities to Day Are under positive Christian influences except the University of Heidelberg where Thi Ruffi anly students Cut and Maul and mangle and murder each other As a matter of Pride instead of infamy. Yon mention Girard College Philadelphia As an exception that College established by the will of or. Girard which forbade religions instruction and the Entrance of clergymen within its Gates. My reply is that i lived for seven years near that College and knew Many of its professors to be Christian instructors and no better Christian influences Are to be found in any College than in Girard College. There stands christianity. There stands infidelity. Compare what they have done. Compare their resources. There is christianity a prayer on her lip a Benediction on her brow both hands full of help for All who want help the Mother of thou Sands of colleges the Mother of thousands of asylums for the oppressed the Blind the sick the lame the imbecile the Mother of missions for the bringing Back of the outcast the Mother of thousands of reformatory institutions for the saving of the lost the Mother of innumerable Sabbath schools bringing millions of children under a Drill to prepare them for respectability and usefulness to say nothing of the great future. That is christianity. Here is infidelity no prayer on her lips no Benediction on her brow both hands clenched what for to fight Christian Ltd. That is the entire business. The Oom Piete Mission of infidelity to fight christianity. Where Are her schools her col Leges her asylums of mercy let me throw you Down a whole Ream of foolscap paper that you May fill All of it with the names of her Beneficent institutions the colleges and the asylums the institutions of mercy and of learning founded by in Fidelity and supported alone by infidelity pronounced against god and the Christian religion and yet in favor of making the world better. A ooh a you say a a Ream of paper is too much for the names of those Well then i throw you a quire of paper. Fill it All up now. I will wait until Yon get All the names Down a ooh a you say Quot that is too Well then i will just hand you a Sheet of letter payer. Just fill up the four sides while we Are talking of this matter with the names of the merciful institutions and the educational institutions founded by infidelity and supported All along by infidelity pronounces against god and the Christian religion yet in favor of humanity. Where Abe tour fruits agnostics a ooh a you say a that is too much room. We done to want a whole Sheet of paper to write Down the perhaps i had better tear out one Leaf from my memorandum Book and ask you fill up both sides of it with the names of such in Stith Ioas. A ooh a Yon say Quot that would too much room. I wont the markets.
