Westbrook september 25. Ouk xat10xal policy. The Bov. Or. Dalton preached a striking Sermon thereon. Lie fear the Fate of Rome and opposes the ideas of the expansionist at st. Stephens Church yesterday morning the Bov. Or. Asa Dalton preached upon questions arising from the late War his text he took from the 21st chapter of st. Luke a gospel the 25th and 26th verses Quot and there shall be signs in the Sun and in the Moon and in the stats and upon the Earth distress of nations with sea and the Waves roaring menus hearts failing them for fear and for looking after those thl ogs which Are coming on the Earth for the Powers of heaven will be he also read from the psalter for the Day verses which had an even More intimate connection with his Sermon since they referred to the time when it broomes necessary for a Choice to be made when a parting of the ways is reached. Or. Dalton introduced Tys subject in a singular Way by an anecdote of a former much beloved Clergyman of this pity whose sea faring friends brought him Home As tokens of remembrance so Many cigars that he smoked until his health was impaired and his phys Lolan bade him Stop. He had reached the parting of the ways. The idea suggested was that such times come to nations. Such a time Larue to new England at the Date of the Groat Temperance reformation in the first half of the Century. Then was a crisis. Farming communities and citizens alike were on the downward Road but the people in the words of the psalmist turned their feet testimonies of god. With a Brief reference to the results of the Victory of Israel Over the canaanite or. Dalton took up the illuminating history of borne which he made the real foundation of his discourse. A simple sturdy people gradually enlarged its territories by successive victories. It outgrew its habits of Economy and morality and became infatuated with the to list for Power. They improved Italy and they conquered Spain which they looked upon much As we do upon Cuba. Other nations in succession fell under their Oon tool and while their riches Lnor eased the lust for Power also grew until their own military resources were exhausted and they fell Back upon mercenaries. While riches poured into borne they were not the gain of the people who grew poorer and poorer. The corruption which marked the latter Days of the roman Empire was the natural result of a career of Conquest for the Sake of spoils. Borne went Down. In a similar Way he briefly reviewed the history of the nations which succeeded the Empire. Spain for instance at one time had in the new world which was practically All her Rio her Empire than Romo Ever possessed. But it was no Wiser than Rome was. The stories of Italy and Germany and France were not unlike. They corrupted their own people while ambitious to crush others. Ail failed. All have found the Pursuit of schemes of foreign Conquest ruinous with the single Exoe Tiou of England. She saw her error committed in dealing with us in the last Century and now so deals with her colonies that it is often said they arc mute English than England. In Spain a colonies As to know her civil and military officials have fleeced the people Over whom they were placed. England has Learned to Send her Best and Wisest men to Rule her colonies. She does not put men in such positions because they Are the sons of great politicians living or dead. Then the speaker referred to existing european conditions. All the nations of the continent Are jealous of each other while they unite in hating Englund. They keep no great armies and go As far As they dare in their manifestations of hostility Russia in China France in slam and Germany and also France in Africa Bat they All feel there is a Point which Mast not be passed. Germany Learned this when the famous lying Squadron was so speedily got together two or three years ago. So Long As England keeps her Navy in its present place of predominance she is sate and she needs no urging to do this. The reverend speaker said if he was an englishman As he is an Amo loan he should be willing to give hl6 last shilling to keep that Navy no to the Mark. Europe said the preacher is at the parting of the ways. He spoke in a most interesting Way of the changes the last few years Bavo brought. One modern butt Eshop could sink All the navies in existence a Century ago. There can never again be dts Luys of bravery like that of Pickett a charge at Gettysburg. Smokeless powder and rapid lure guns have put an end to Ucb things. It is a wonder to him that our own country allowed itself to fall 60 far behind As it did. On soldiers in Cuba armed with a old fashioned Springfields wore not Able to Cope on equal terms with the Spanish Mauser using smokeless powder. Why should we have been so far behind a nation like Spain. It was Folly which must not be repeated. Either we must follow a policy of peace of one of preparedness for War. Bat these european nations cannot always stand the Burden under which they now groan. The system of immense armaments will break Down. From it comes the hint of anarchy and evils More pressing though less imposing. These nations cannot Cope with the Rich people of England. Their Wise men must consider their ways. Now the russian statesmen Are far a. Eng and patriotic it is a great nation. Russia with its 135,000,000 of people to our 75,000,0c0 but the Czar Young and enthusiastic though to is recognizes the fact thut his people Are on the wrong Road Lien co his suggestion of u partial disarmament of Europe which shall Lessen the burdens under which the Ordinary Man staggers. The emperor of Germany had seen the same thing and proposed to move in this direction but his Thunder was stolen. All Tho nations would disarm except France. She is insane and is ruled by her army. Eranos is nominally a Republic but to was borne. General War Between the Powers of Europe now with the improvements in arms and munitions would mean simply entire desolation. No responsible Man dares take the Lead in bringing it about. England is getting ahead of these nations As Well As we Are and though there la no Alliance Between us there would be one if it Ever became necessary. And european statesmen know this. There Aro Good As Well a6 great men among them. We have been on the right Road. They have been on the wrong. Now shall we Start out on a career of Conquest or. Dalton believed Cuba was an exceptional Case. Our statesmen from Jefferson Down have believed that if it do do not become oars it must at last come under our controlling influence in some Way. Our Leal danger lies in the East. He opposed the acquisition of the Philippines while believing that Coaling stations there As Well As in Hawaii should properly be secured. The Zeal of some religious papers for the acquisition of this extensive territory for missionary purposes did not strike him As based upon Good sense. If we were to acquire the islands it would necessitate Tho formation of a great army and where Are the men to come from voluntary enlistments would probably be exceedingly slow. To get and Send ont there tens of thousands of men would be very expensive business. And if we do get this new Possession we shall Send men out there some of whom will come Back with All run Down dyspepsia and liver troubles now better than for two years. A a i was All run Down with liver trouble and dyspepsia. Prescriptions and other preparations gave no Benefit. I have taken three bottles of hoods Sarsaparilla and i have not Felt As Well for two years As now and i firmly believe in hoods Mas. U. Bra Don Sorrento Maine. Remember hoods Sarsaparilla is the bests in fact the one True blood purifier. Hoods pills Druggis a. 25c. Immense fortunes and a reign of corrupt Quot Tion can be confidently looked for. Why should we undertake to hold and Rule this Distant land or. Dolton referred to or. Reed saying be was glad to be Able to believe that one representative in Congress will favor no such scheme. The desire of Tho preacher was that this country May be saved from entering upon any such career of Conquest and Corr Netlon tending towards its own ruin As some people would advocate. He denounced the Rule of political Bosses Here at Home which would be intensified under this new policy saying the politicians now do just what they please with us and referred to the role of a course and ignorant Boss like Croker Over new York City As a disgrace to the country. If be were to die another would step in his place. The whole system which would be strengthened by securing the Philippines must be changed else we shall go Rome s Way. Or. Dalton dosed by expressing his gratification that the papers of this City so fur As he knows have without any partisanship but from Bulgher motives United in opposing the so called policy of new lieutenant for co. B. Mervyn a. Rioe who was second lieutenant of co. A 1st Maine volunteers and acted As assistant quartermaster and assistant comm ussury at Chickamauga has been promoted to co. A of Portland. Lieut. Rice is a Rockland Man son of Hon. Albert Rice Anda member of Knox county bar and was democratic candidate for mayor of Rook and several years ago. He is a Bowdoin. Graduate and about 30 years of age. Changes at fort Preble. It a reported that Battery a 7th artillery capt Harrison will be sent to fort Slocum and that Battery a 7th artillery will remain at fort Puebla a detachment of 20 men under a non Onia mass loved officer will to kept at Portland head and they will be taken from the Battery station at fort Preble. Second Parish Church. Mrs. Leonora Lako delivers a spiritual address. A Large and interested audience gathered at second Parish thu or last evening to listen to mrs. Leonora Lake Vito president of the Catholic total abstinence society. The meeting was Given under the auspices of the local w. C t. U. Mrs. N. Stevens president of the Maine Branch presided and expressed regret at the enforced absence of the Rev. Or. Taok but spoke a few fitting words in introducing a representative of a society working for the same end As the women a Christian Tempe Range Union. Mrs. Lake spoke most reverently in her opening a words of the sacredness of the Day set aside for the worship of our father and she begged her hearers to put away All their prejudice and listen to her Appeal on the great question of Temperance. The speaker has an Earnest convincing Way of patting bar plea and she spoke first for the safeguard of the Home and the children because the vice of intemperance had robbed children of their rights the right of being Well born. This right is not that of an aristocrat to heritage but of being a Well born of healthy sound she Drew a very forcible comparison Between the care of children and the care Given to Flowers asking if we would expose the Flowers to the Frost or to any blighting influence. From this the speaker Drew a very graphic picture of the horrible limitation into which so Many children Are born into the world. Quot the tests of civilization a Eald mrs. Lake Quot Are not Tho institutes of learning the results of Solence and the Best work of railroads but the share of happiness enjoyed by the greatest number of u people. In our country is this the Cate the love of Money is the god we worship and for the love of Money the liquor traffic has grown in Tho land. We Are the sculptors of character Ana although we Admire the work of the sculptor in Murbie we Are Given the Power to work and Mould another Power in but we do not exert ourselves to prevent the evil influences which surround the children whom we ought to Mould in the Best the speaker enforced this Point of responsibility very of Kolbly adding pertinently that although she was an Irish Catholic woman speaking in a protestant Church she Felt it was quite time there was a Union Between Tho representatives of the different religions because unfortunately the liquor habit has been no respecter of creeds and nationality. Mrs. Lake said that in her work among those of different creeds there was one thing non which All agreed that was the lords prayer yet sometimes she Felt that we did not wish the lords will to be done and did not seem to wish not to be led into temptation there was so Little concerted action among us. The plea Foi More of this concerted action was the closing words of mrs. Lakes address and was delivered with much Saru Estasa and conviction. A it mrs. Stevens thanked the an Lenoe for being there adding that she Felt sure they would All be better for having head the eloquent words of mrs. Lake. Pfr80nal. It or. Philip h.
