The Wie Man knew of to if a a words. When other men had spoken he had listened when they i used he had connived with them until he hid gone into Tjie same excesses. The fear of Man Bron it Solomon into a snare to fear not to do what others did wove about him numerous evils. It is Good that he ims Given us the suits of his experience Strung the pearls if Wisdom whose Luster is still Undi mined. Is proverbs abound in antitheses which show that he knew both sides of life. Would that we might profit by his experience. He Here declares against a prevalent evil the fear of Man. Widespread was this evil in his Day and also is it in oars. He does not refer to All kinds of timidity in the bold statement of the text. No life has Ever been harmed by its reverence for god and Man. Then too there is a fear of Man which is positively a helpful. It is that deference and respect which the individual ought to have for the just of Inion of the Public. In the present discussion in behalf of Good government in this City it is the chief demand that a wholesome same respect be shown to just popular opinion. There must be this whole fear of Man in order to a Good effect from popular criticism. He who rejects criticism and repudiates advice is fit for no uplifting above his own contracted sphere. On the other hand respect for just of Union of others appears Beautiful in any person in any rank and condition of life. 1 herein lies the Power and profit of a Republican form of government. The Choice of the people is shown in the endorsement of men and measures which thus become representative. At least this is the theory. The True representative will consult the opinion of his constituency. In the recent Illinois contest upon the subject of High License which resulted in a Complete Victory for a better restriction of the traffic lasting contempt is hurled upon those representatives who did not respect the petitions and resolutions offered by their con bit talents and so should every representative of the people be held in contempt who does not defer in All right things to the wishes of those whom he represents. If this is not done oaths Are blasphemous and Laws fire abortive. But while this respectful fear for just Public opinion is commendable there is a fear of Man which bring eth a snare. To this is Especial emphasis to be Given. To define this is not difficult. I would say it is the fear of doing right lest we lose favor with a Loose popular majority or minority which we fear there is a popular opinion which is the product of Good conscience loyalty and morality when it Speaks whosoever hears and heeds is profited. There is a popular opinion which is the product of depravity disloyalty and immorality when it Speaks whosoever hears and heeds is prostituted. The one makes the voice of the people the voice of virtue the other makes the voice of the people the voice of vice. To fear the one brings safety to fear the other bring eth a snare. Some Are afraid of losing this evil favor of Mankind. Let me define More closely 1. The fear of Man in seeking to gratify personal ambition bring eth a snare. Jealous Are the eyes which behold Success in others. Fearful the hearts where Pride prevails. Nervous the hand which pulls the wires for a political Elevation. Disastrous to any Community Are the selfish. Proud and i persistent workers for personal triumphs. The City which has the most of such Personis fares worst. They abound in this City their name is legion. They Are found in business circles. Men who to make Money fear honest Competition in week Day business. Their personal ambition is to build up their own Fortune on the wrecks of others. They Are swayed by their patronage. Loss of a customer is More feared than loss of Good principles there is not a Trade profession or calling that does not furnish recruits to this army of cowards. In proof you have but to Analyse the spirit of Sabbath desecration which abounds in this City. There Are grocers who sell their manhood along with their merchandise to Sabbath customers. There Are druggists who Jake Healing nostrums of soda water and cigars dealt out to Sabbath idlers. There Are merchants who measure their own cowardice along with their Sabbath sales. There Are ministers who Mouth the truth which they should utter in Thunder tones. There Are physicians who sacrifice their sabbaths to simpering stingy patients who put off their physic till the lord s Jay. And Why is it thus Why this cringing tickling deference to widespread evil i because of personal ambit it. Which fears the loss of How Many business men Are avoiding defined positions dodging important issues for fear of Man and Money. And so it has been going on until our sabbaths Are destroyed and Many characters Are dwarfed into imbecility and weakness. The snare which such a fear of Man brings is Pride. Pride which fears lest a competitor s sales will be larger his Home finer his Power greater. The love of i it Ower. The desires of personal ambition joined to this weak deference to i Public patronage bring a snare from which it is difficult to free one s self. Only by a return to courageous princ ittle and bold sacrifice of evil gains can a Rescue be made. Another definition of tie fear which bring eth a snare. A a. The fear of Man in courting popular majorities. There Are multitudes of peo i be who Are led by human influence. The chains by which the Prince of darkness binds men to his Yoke and Banner Are not always the coarser ones of vice and lust. He makes sure of thousands by binding them with the cords of some tender effect tion to others who declare themselves the enemies of god and his Christ. He uses the voice of evil majorities to command his victims. The courting of i it simlar majorities works havoc in our churches. The number of Earnest godly christians is Small. The vast majority of Church members is associated with the unrighteousness of relations and influences which Are unchristian. We Are told to be in the world but not of the world. We Are commanded to come out and be separate but it is hard to maintain such a position in business social and moral relations of life. This difficulty often makes the unstable Christian a slave of Man. The world s majorities hold him in leading strings and Ere the poor self sold victim is aware the spirit of Independence is quite extinct. Snares Are constantly set in the pathway of christians and Many Are speedily entwined in the meshes of worldly associations. Be weak pliant souls would that you Felt but one influence More of him who says Quot be Are bought with a Price be be not the servants of the Christian society of this City cowers before the world s majorities. If the passports to what is considered desirable society Are cards wine and the dance Church members Are not wanting who to give their Public endorsement of these evils. Their Homes Are invaded their sons and daughters become victims to dissipation which Stul tidies conscience and Fosters irreligion. Christianity is made a hollow mask to be worn by Many upon solemn occasions and at other times to be cast aside As an ill fitting cloak. A review of this feature of the Christian world is enough to make every True Christian shudder. Such is the sad plight into which the religion of any Community Falls when the fear of the world s evil majorities brings piety into the snare which is set for it on every hand. I Ain not despondent. I remember the times of old the of god. And the prayers of the faithful. We Are in an Era of Christian successes As Well As religious . The Felt in of god brings the one the fear of Man bring the other. But not alone does the Church suffer from her fear of the worlds majorities. The greatest peril belongs to the state. God has preserved his Church in All and through All. Nations have perished governments decayed and empires have fallen but the pure Stream of christianity has been Ever blowing from the Wells of salvation. The Structure of True religion has been a growing Temple whose builder and maker is god. I have no fear for the Church though Many of her members do Pierce themselves through with Many sorrows and fall into the snares of the wicket. But i do fear for the state. No government now existing upon t in Earth has the divine Promise of permanency. Our Only safeguard is a Wise upholding of a government based upon principles which god has declared in his word. No nation can divine ordinances and Prosper. No Sabbatise irreligion and the cry for personal Liberty will wreck the fairest civilization on Earth. Behold then the dangers which imperil your safety. The fear of Man in courting pop it ular majorities has become the science of politics. Politicians Fawn and cringe before classes whom in their soul they despise and of All majorities which make them tremble most the liquor organizations Are the mightiest. There Are 400 1 such organizations in this country. Last year the Brewer s association appropriated to the destruction of Home morals and Good government the following sums of Money a too to Kansas 5000 to Michigan 3000 to Indiana a it Kkt to Iowa and 4 k>0 for publications i Ioco to Aid in the defeat of prohibition in Maryland and $4 k>0 More for literature for general circulation. They also had an an item of expenses $4,5110 for agitation. The Brewers claim to represent a capital of 3.w,000,000.they have 2.71� breweries and ,000,000gallons o Beer each the liquor traffic has become the balance of Power in All political contests. Pm i Tea Eai a mates candidates and polls majorities it laughs at government and despises Law. Our cities know the Power of this element. Representatives Are elected to fill the various offices who Are not the real Choice of the peole but Are the creation of this traffic. Did not the mayor of this City receive the strongest endorsement for his election from a caucus held in a Saloon on fourth Street and Vas not that caucus held in the interests of the i Fluor traffic let he deny it he is one of Many who listen to the demands of popular majorities. And we Are unfortunate enough to have allowed that met Jority in this instance to be on the Side of liquor and licentiousness. And so All Over our land the voice of pop mar majorities is generally the voice of evil because it comes from an evil minority manufactured into a majority by the Purchase and Sale of the liquor Intel ests. Sometimes this evil voice Speaks through one party sometimes through the other but generally through both. It Speaks and office seekers trembling by stoop to listen and obey. The Choice of candidates is no longer the result of Public a it precis Ilion but comes from packed primaries and purchased conventions. Thus is the state imperilled and her citizens ensnared. We need bold men of principle in both parties to arise and unite in the overthrow of whisky government placing at the head of our cities officers who do not sell themselves to the defeat of Law and order. We must seek candidates from among those who not seek candidacy. We must Hae executive of fliers who do not fear the voice of evil majorities who do not fear Many for the fear of Man bring eth a snare. The snare of courting popular majorities is presum2>tion. In the Church the presuming to serve both god and mammon in the world the presuming to gain wordly i promotion by resort to evil majorities which wreck Home and human happiness. Vain , snares Are they both of them and woe to him whose Craven fear brings their meshes of evil around his life. Still another definition of the fear which bring eth a snare. 3. The fear of Man in upholding moral principles bring eth a snare. A Good conscience gives moral courage an evil conscience brings moral cowardice. Obedience to god and love toward Man makes a life a Gibraltar impregnable fortified. But omitting these Pivotal principles a life becomes the House built upon the Sand trembling in its insecurity hopeless in its destiny. Of for a revival of godly principles in our midst. Then there would not be wanting men who would lift this City out of the morass into which it has fallen. The sad pestilential breath of moral malaria is upon us the Poison of whose presence makes us supine and listless come pfc of god o breath of god and thy heavenly breezes. Brio but health glow of moral manhood by human Hood to our enervated lives. O Light of god s Counte Nance in a. Give us peace. How Long shall to by of Man keep us from up holding he moral principles How Long Filion straggle in its Nare. I need not Axil Bis form of fear. The Burren Der of Aib principles is the Cruie of City Iii Bill stores in shops m treets. In still Bre have sounded the re rent. The a i but Ling lit is a rallying cry it comes a More lips than mine.

That snare Iesley. Policy in Rohl. No god to enrich vhf in denying his Laws to favor i a enemies. The snare of policy stretches along ail time and now shapes who do not Shrive its mesh Esau the sword of the spirit which is the mid of god. In the fear of god let a a of spirit of Independence heave and the anon body think that Thyl Uthal in to it is City sleep does in Ifni Mulk Forth boldly is alcohol King Aalph baath his Bacchanalia.

My Outlook is wider than this City the world is my Home and humanity my Kin. Confucius taught that heaven Means principle. So far As he Hadj Light he was right.

The nations of the Earth shall be free from sin s tyranny and in that Day perfect love to god and Man will cast out fear. Shall we take courage and go Forward governor Porter interviewed. Monday afternoon an Indianapolis journal reporter dropped in upon governor Porter and the following interview resulted Quot you have been subject to considerable criticism governor Quot on account a of the location of the two new he Pinals for tie Quot yes Valparaiso Laporte. Elki. At. South Bend Plymouth Warsaw. I it Wayne Peru Logan port. Rich i Cid. Hagerstown Connersville Madison did two or three other places were applicants for asylums and there were but two to be located by the commissioners. The commissioners would have been glad to oblige each town but More than a dozen towns had necessarily to be Distaj pointed. The people of each with a very natural partiality persuaded themselves that their town possessed advantages Over All others. The selection of Richmond and logans port consequently has been followed by violent expressions of disapproval by most of the disappointed places. I am one of the commissioners appointed to be such by the legislature much against my will the other four commissioners two of them democrats and two Republic Rev Are commissioners from Choice having kindly accepted appointments from me. Now it would seem in All fairness that the member upon whom the Choice was forced should be judged the most gently but i have got largely the greatest share of the abuse. Well i take it All so patiently that i feel almost like Horatio who took Quot Fortune s buffets and rewards with equal of coarse i know perfectly Well that the people of the state will soon come to understand the whole matter rightly and that none will be More willing to be just than those who Are now the most excited. Quot the norther n part of the state seems to i e quite suggested the reporter. Quot yes and it Amu a me to be myself assaulted in that Quarter As from the first to last i advocated establishing one of the a i plums in the extreme Northern part of the state. I argued that so Many railroads pointing to Chicago traversed and would Travise that part of the state that it a would soon be the Mot a populous part of Quot vere you oppo de to Logansport r Quot not in the sense of having any unkind feeling towards it. It is an important Railroad Center and a highly flourishing place and i like the people there. I like the a ostentatious Way in which the town grows. Quot the fort Wayne Sentinel tries to put on you the blame for the failure of fort Wayne to get one of the asylums Quot Quot of yes that s ail on account of a difference in politics. Our democratic friends there feel i v. Ill not say whether justly or not that their representatives in the legislature committed a serious Blunder when after they had put fort Wayne in the Asylum Bill alongside of Evansville they withdrew fort Wayne and allowed Evansville to remain and draw a prize. The republicans there have worried them Over it. And they now wish to retrieve their Blunder by charging that a Republican governor is responsible for their failing to get an Asylum. The % ote of the commissioners on establishing an Asylum at Richmond stood two democrats and two republicans for it the governor being the chairman and there being no tie not voting. For establishing an Asylum at Logansport the vote stood two democrats and one Republican for it. And one Republican against it the governor again not voting As there was no a Koa How free there was no vote Tipon fort Wayne at to or indeed upon any other places than Logansport and Richmond. Every commissioner Felt most Friendly to fort Wayne where the commissioners were treated with great kindness and hospitality but in the discharge of their Public duty they those two other places in preference i will not say that they May not have erred but i will say that they acted a the fort Wayne Sentinel says you admitted a rabble into the room when the fort Wayne committee was to be heard Quot a the Comini Tecc Madison and h p it tvs a he in Luy office at that to .

Senator Bell the chief spokesman of fort Wayne did not object to this but closed his argument by thanking the commissioners for the patient and courteous hearing Given to the fort Wayne co col. D. M.
