cannot retain your uneven quoting just so much of leave in your hands all tht authority, glory, honor, and an ut I.tnce into the heavenly while you leave to us the heavy work—subjection and salvation by the sain of our teeth! Let us see whether this same literal translation of Scripture will suit our church brethren Read their curse—it is very plain, and it is not -aid that it is limited to Christ’s coming: •*(. ursed is tile ground for thy sake. m sorrow shalt thou eat. of it all the day s of thy life, and thou shalt eat the herb of the Held, in the sweat of thy face -halt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground, for out of it wast thou taken, for dust thou art, and unto I dust thou shalt return.” Now on the principle o literal interpretation, without regard to times, places, customs, or tile redemptive work of Christ, why is not every man shouldering Ids curse in spite of its discomforts? Let every man Oi them go to work in the ground, and subdue a- far as they can the thorns and ; thistles their sin brought. Then too, 1 their diet wa- to be of “herbs.'’ Men j don t enjo\ “herbs,” and the Creator : adds: “In the sweat of thy face shalt j thou eat bread, evidently meaning that they should do the cooking. This explains why I have always found men-cooks to excel tile women. They were I in their God-ordained sphere. Their -in | and appetite tits them for it. My sisters ; our curse is heavy enough. It is evident I trum God - word- -the word of a greater than Paul—that the perspiring business * is not ours, let u- do a- little a- pos-ible I of it, lest i nhappuy we lie found tight-! ing against <Iud.
j Now .-ast a Hasty glance at our position I on a single mission tie,d. When I went J to China in lsP2, imagine my surprise to I bud a corner in each church latticed ; off, -• • that no one could see in ; it from th*- audience, and no native women in th*- , ougregatiou. When I inquired the u-e of this place. I was informed thai women, heathen aud Christian, were in this -mail room listening to the gospel through til*- lait im s, and that as yet this wa- necessary out of def.-r-etice to the customs of the country. Thank God. ere we left we saw Christianity so lirmh established that every “wall of partition" was broken down, and our Chinese -isters could -it in the public congregation, but O', what deprav- I ity must I -till confess, for our modest little ( hinese sisters, following their custom-, -it there with uncovered head-and unveiled faces. It was under such circumstances that I learned th*- luxury of silt ng in church w 'hosta burden-! .-••me bonnet on my head.
But <h ye sti k,ers for Paul's instruction- to th** ancient church being followed in this age. what will ye do with your Chinese brethren, the Revs. Hus, Sias, lung- , and others, all blessed, good men. and, I thought, very stir*- of the kingdom, but ala-! ala-! they have long hair: even longer than our honored , Washington's: and not only very long, but, worse still, braided, and, worst of all MU how can I tell it ? i, -ilk. sometime- r*-d or white, but generally black. is braided into the -ame long hair, finishing off with a tas-el Surely here is work serious indeed for the general conference. 'Tis a desperaate case, for St. Paul expressed himself most strongly on the point. Iii I Cor. ix, 14, he -ay*: “Doth not even
nature itself tea' ’n you that if a man have long iiair it is a shame unto him?” No. Brother Paul, “Natur* ” teaches no such thing in China, and some of our grand ministers in that country, in spite , of their “long hair,"can duplicate Paul’s j recital of afflictions for Christ'- sake ; ■ given in 2 Cor. ii. 25-51—nay, more: one j of them, who we doubt not is entered into “the rest that reinaineth,” could say I that he had received not “forty stripes -ave one,” but two thousand not lacking one. But what do all these* sufferings for Christ'- -ake amount to against, tile long-hair sin?
Brethren, suffer a word of exhortation from one of the weako-t. but who nevertheless loves the Lord Christ and Iii-kingdom, and who believes in Hi- full redemptive work even for l,*-r. Don I brethren. I pray you, hide any longer behind that miserable, weak, absurd scriptural argument, but let Dr. 'I. A.

“I do not believe that, the result of tile election in Indiana will affect the presidential nomination in ’n? us Treasurer Huston affects to believe.

I was too much for a democratic house to : withstand. Then again the Alabama j democratic cane growers threatened to bolt the Mills bill if sugar was free listed. The sugar n-tiner-' trust and the ex-confederate cane growers bought upandbull-dosed the last democratic house of representatives to deny the people of the country free sugar. It took a republican congress to resist these powerful influences, and what is more, it, took th** staunch and determined purpose of such men as John H.

Free sugar was defeated in the senate amendments to the house bill, and was again secured in the conference committee only by the determined purpose of such men a- Gear, Burrows and Laffolette.

One more week of labor and th** battle will be won. There will be exactly seventeen republican majority in the next house of representatives. Of course, after the contested election eases have been settled, t he majority will be greater. But the house will organize with jtu-t seventeen republican majority. Meantime, there will be four more republicans added to the republican majority iii the senate, and the country will be safe from the democratic party for some tune to come. Morrison, with the horizontal reduction tariff bill, is still on earth drawing a salary as an interstate commerce commissioner; but he will be an argumentive angel, and Roger Mills a forensic angel practicing before the bar of heaven many years before this country will ever again be endangered by a democratic majority in congress to unsettle our business and destroy our trade relations with the world, by-surrendering the principle of protection under which our country ha- developed.

There will be an extra session of congress. Tlie president will call the extra session mainly for the purpose of giving sufficient time to th** senate for the passage of th*- federal election bill. It ought not to require an extra -e—ion to do thi-thing. The republican majority in the senate ought to pass that bill under suspension of the rule-. There is neither rhyme nor reason in til** submission of a majority to a minority, 'lh*- republican house settled that question for all time, and the senate ought not to be slow in following suit. The majority should rule, and the time is rapidly coming when th** people will compel the senate to talk less and work more, or else elect senators by direct vote of the people; or, pos-ibly. a-some parliamentarians hope, abolish th*--enate altogether. Thor** is nothing in the argument of tile far-seeing political coward- who -ay “tlie democrats might return to power some time, and then they would carry things with a high band and we d he gored by our own bull,' If that time comes, and the majority ol our people elect democrats to manage their business for them, the minority, be they whigs, republicans, prohibitionists or grangers, ought to let the representatives of the majority of the people go on and legislate for them. It matters not which party i- in power, so far a- the principle i- concerned, the majority should rule.

The race problem must be solved, and th*- way to commence its solution is to give to every colored man, and every white man, of every nationality, a right to have his ballot ca-i as he pleases and to have it counted. Education will fol low, and it will be education of the higher sort too. The republican majority in the senate now stands confronted with a great public duty. There should be no wavering, nor shirking. The republican house honestly representing the majority bv which elected, has placed the problem before the republican majority in the senate. If there beany republican senators too cowardly, or too politic to do their duty in the matter, th** people should send fair men to take their places. There must be no mincing of matters, no shirking, and no dodging. The issue is before the senate, and it 6MITU D. Fry.
tion to the railroad power that made ii im president by a hostility to the Hennepin canal, so pronounced that its friend-were hopeless of securing an appropriation for its actual construction during the Cleveland administration, but kept at work for it inst the same; it was only when a republican president anda republican congress were secured together that there was really hope for the Hennepin, and that hop** became an assured reality the first year of republican rule. The Cable work i- now to break the power of the republican party in the house so a-to create a legislative deadlock, and every friend of popular government, every friend of home interests should array himself in solid opposition to this project.
The Cable interests did not succeed in getting the Rock Island postoffice for their candidate, -imply because they were less influential with Congressman Bill Neeee than Boss Danforth of the Rock Islander. They have had it in for N**ece ever since, and as for Danforth, they are biding their time and meanwhile simply using him.
Past experience serves to show that the Cables, though grasping the organized power of moii'-y, cannot do precis, ly as they wish either in the congressional district or the city alone. A democratic nomination may be secured by manipulation, but when it comes to election day the people speak.
The people recognize Gest as their champion and Cable as their enemy and their votes will be for representative self-government and against monopoly rule.

If there be a .-licht arid it will only be temporary increase in the cost of woolen goods, cutlery and a very few other articles, owing to an increase in the tariff duties., would it not be fair to give republica!;- credit for reducing the tariff on -near, on binding twine and on other article- which the last democratic congre*.- did not reduce'.’ Binding twine wa- reduced from two and one-half cents per pound to -even tenths of a rent per pound. Thi- wa- in deference to the demand of the farmers of the northwest. It was resisted by such free trade democrats as Flower, of New York city, who i- a free trader only when interests in which hi- constituent- are not concerned, are considered. Congressman Flower i- one of th** leading fr.-e traders of congress. He ha- even been mentioned by hi- party a-au available candidate for the presidency. But when tile republicans in congress, in obedience to the wi-hc- of the farmers of til** country. propo>ed and effected a reduction of almost j two cents ;* pound upon binding twine, Mr. Free-trade Flower flew in the face of this tariff revision proposition because, forsooth, three thou>and employes in a binding twine factory in the city of New York, would be thrown out of employment. This i*. about the average consistency of free traders so-called. A free trad** congress led by Mills, of Texas, would not take th** tariff off of sugar: a republican . on-dress led by McKinley, did take the tariff off of sugar. A democratic congress refused to take the tariff off of twine, a republican protection congress did take it off in obedience to the demands of the farmer-of the northwest.
A republican congress- has increased the articles upon the free list, judiciously selecting such as we are unable to produce at all. or at least rot profitably, in this country, until now- one half of our importations come in duty free. Republicans revise the tariff in the interest of American production and labor, not in the interest of English manufacturer-and American importers. Foreign influences do not control in the revision of the tariff by republicans. Foreign trade i- alarmed, foreign papers ‘are beside themselves with denunciation of the McKinley bill. The same papers praised the Mills’ bill. Republicans revise the tariff in the interest of the people of this country, while democrats revise it in the interest of The British Cobden club.

Mr. Gear was more influential than any other member of the waysand means committee, in securing free sugar. The -agar trust fought with the desperation of despair to defeat the free sugar policy of the house McKinley bill. The trust defeated it two years ago, when the house was democratic, and the Mills’ bill, with its tax on sugar, was then the glory of free traders, as the free sugar McKinley bill is now their despair.

Nor can we rely exclu-ively on tis** j patriotism of ti.** democratic party ami its adherence to the doctrine of >elf-| government.. As many of you heard t->
: day. one of the leading fundamenta I principles of the republican party | is equality of right before the j law; that all, high aud low, rich and ! poor. learned and unlearned, w hite and j black, shall have equal rights, civil and I political; and, a- a corollary to such j I proposition, that the majority of citizen- I must govern. A- we ar** not able to agree, as absolute unanimity is imp..—i- ; hie, it follows a- a necessary result, that the nut ority it a free country must govern. Now, I desire to -ay. in the second place, (hat the democratic party don’t exactly adhere to this doctrine, and they do not believe in a government by the majority. My first proof i- th*- result of the election of I-fit*. You all remember that in that presidential campaign, the republican party, early in the history of it- existence, insisted that we should have no more -lave territory. That was the fundamental doctrine of the party— non-interference with slavery in th.* states where it existed, but free territory where slavery did not exist. And the people endorsed this platform, aud elected a republican president and vice-president of the United States.
This appeal to the jury of our whole country ought to hav*- decided that question. The democratic party did not think so. Th** controlling element of the party, residing in the southern states, rebelled and attempted to go out of the union, and the Breckenridge .dement of the democratic party in the north sympathized and aided them a1! they could. The offense committed was that the people of th** I nit**d State-, being a majority of the presidential electors of the several -ta?*- of th** union, had decided, solemnly at the polls, by their votes, that we would have no more slave territory. This was the foundation of the rebellion that cost the government over six thousand millions

Not withstanding this presentation, however. the people of the United States for some rea-oti declined to accept their view of iii*- subject and elected the republican candidates for president and vice president. Now I will state a fact or two justifying the conclusion the people arrived at at that time First, allow me to say, that we all think that a tariff levied on good- brought to this country fur sale i- a tax, arid it i- levied, primarily, for trie purpose of aiding to defray the expense- of the government. The iota expenses of the government I -oppose for this current fiscal year and the suc-! ceding one will hardly fail -lion of four i hundred arui fifty millions of dollars.
As th** country t- constantly growing , it may be tha? th** national expenses may never come to much less at any time in I the future. H«.w snail we rai-** that I amount?

' how -iial! we raise this very .arg.* sum of j money ? We have ascertained according j to tile democratic argument and theory j that it should not be raised by a tax I levied on foreign good* brought here for j sale in our own country. Because surely I if what they < is true, that it j co-*- us rive ■ dollars to secure | one, it would be a very extrav-
: agant method of raising money. There ought surely to be a way of raising the money at less co-t. How shall it be raised ? That is the question. It is a question that propounded itself to the very fir-t congress of the country. They levied a tax on foreign goods brought I here for sale. and they have kept it up I year by year down to tile present year of jour Lord, I SPO. Now, is not that a I marvelous state of facts? if the demo-j cratic party is right and levying a tax on j foreign goods brought here for -ale costs : the people of the United Stat**- five
• times a- many dollars as they pay int** j the treasury of the United States, is it i not strange that ail the congresses that j ever convened in the last one hun-j dred year?, have rai.-ed the great
er dollars in the expenditure of money j **r part of the expenses of the nation.
