York at Rische s opera House last sunday on the above subject was very Best one i have yet had the pleasure of hearing him deliver. The doctor said he Felt pious and for that reason took his text from the Bible of that memorable subject where the Jailer being frightened by the earthquake asked his prisoners Paul and Silas what shall i do to be the do Tor explained and expounded the matter according to his own ideas and the principles of reason and common sense. We said very truly that if his adversaries in this e to had their Way they would hang him at 10 o clock on the Morrow. In my opinion the Man or woman who can not Bear to have their ideas Aud beliefs sifted to the Bottom generally have a very weak foun Dation for the Structure of their beliefs. Truth will always Shine no matter where it May be found either among liberals or christians some people cannot Bear tie South it makes them angry Aud desperate for it knocks their paper houses to to Aud among All Ages and people there have been those formed who were ready to die Tor their ideals of Faith. At the close of the lecture there was a business meet ing Aud our genial Friend John h. Copeland was elected president of the society. I have heard and been twisted about it that the liberals composing or. York s audience were Burns and but it was ouly necessary to hear the names of the committees appointed yesterday to see Trie falsity of the accusation. Why some of the most Brainy and influential men in town and some big financial gang comprise the society men who look upon life As real and not a dream. It is proposed and intended to build a Large hand some three Story building for the Liberal element of this City the lower floor to be used f r stores the second to be kept forever As a Hall for free thought Atid Liberal ism Aud the third Story to rent for offices so that tue building would Fina scially be a paying one. Or. York has great Faith As to the future of our Beautiful City. He says she is just Awakening to the of what she is May become. I heartily wish and Hope the building will be a Success Aud if it is pushed ahead now it will Hoo ii become a reality. Evolution teaches the doctrine of immortality. Nature teaches there is no death for All seeming death in nature is but the resurrection to a newer Aud More Beautiful existence in another sphere of life. There is no death the stars go Down to Rise upon a firmer Shore and Safe in heavens jewelled Crown May Shine forever Jan. 12 1891. Magnolia american fruits of the Tariff Lor wages. Now York press.
