Saturday night the Austin dummy coming east ran into a Bolt Line train. Capt, Dickey of Austin, an old citizen of the place, was killed; the other passengers and the train-men escaped. The fault of the accident is said to rest on Leonard Graves, the engineer of the dummy train, wbo was negligent about giving tbe signal to put on the brakes. The body of a man about S5 years old, live feet eiirtit inches in bight, was found un der the sidewalk between Nos. 73 and 73 West Kiuzlu street.

As the propeller Lawrence was euterin. the barbor yesterday a cry of " help!" was beard. A smalt capsized sailboat was seen drifting out to sea with two men clinging to the bottom. They were about two miles from shore. Capt. Thorp sent a boat to pick them up. They bad been in the water nearly an hour and were almost exhausted. Both refused to give their names, but one was recog nized as Mervin Cady, a glass-cutter. Tbo life- saving crew brought their boat in. HIDING OS SHOTGUNS. Herman Colbatb, Joseph Leech, Thomas O'laugblin, William Haag, and Arthur Conley, youths whose ages range from IS to 18 years. went to a piece of woods west of the city Satur day night to shoot birds. They started for the city yesterday morning in a one-horse wagon owned by Paul Haag of No. 1113 West Madison street. Conley aad O'Lauirhlln in the seat and the other three lounging in tbe box of the wagon on top of nve shotguns. Uolbath rolled on the trigger of one of the guns, and its contents tore through the back of the seat and into the lert hip of Coniey, making a dangerous wound. He was taken to the County Hospital. The wounded boy has no relatives in Chicago, having come from Canada six weeks ago. The other boys were locked up at the West Madison Street Station pending tbe result of Conley's injuries. TRADE AND LABOR. . At the meeting of the Trade and ilabor Assembly yesterday Thomas Randall offered a resolution indorsing tne Democratic State ticket because the Democratic Convention had incorporated the demands or the State Labor Convention while the Republicans had not. An animated discussion ensued, Altssrs. A. C. CaDien.-u, J. B. Murphy, John Foley, William K. Johnson, and George Foster opposing the resolution on the ground, mainly, that it was in coucravention of tbe spirit of the constitution of me assembly, which provides that " the merits or demerits of any political party or as-eociHtioo shall not be discussed at the meetings of this ksfnubl." It was also contended that if passeu the resolution would tend to create a great deal of dissatisfaction and dissension among the trade organizations or the city. Mr. V. F. eib supported tn resolution, and ultimately, on motion of Mr. George Rogers, the Hole matter was referred to the State Kxecu-tite Committee, with instructions to take immediate action. Mr. Seib then offered a resolution indorsing Leo P. Dwyer as a candidate for the Legislature In tbe Fifth District, which wa3 tabled. Mr. George Rogers from the Iron Molders' Union reported that bad feeling still existed with reference to the Cribben Sexton strike, which bad lasted six months. Many of the strikers were In sore distress, and as a means of partially affording them assistance, a ball would be given at Chlich's Had the 27th lust, for their benefit. LABOR'S VOICE. IT GETS AS AIRIKO OS THE LAKE-FROST. I have worked thirty years," said Samuel Fielding at the Lake-Front yesterday, " and to-aay I haven't a cent to show for it. Where have all those earnings gone? A voice: Down your throat. Into the pockets of such men as Potter Palmer and Pullman. The Bible ays, 'Consider the birds of the air; they toil not, neither do they spin, and yet they are clothed.' You fellows Just loaf around and rou may get rich too." The speaker also stated that the Democratic and Republican parties bad forced tbe laborer down till, if he elevated bimseir at all, he must pull himself up by his boot-straps. Thereupon s blear-eyed man, roosting on a " keep-off-the-grass" sign, shouted, "Hooray for Butler." "To with Bin Butler," responded a volco on tbe other side" of the crowd. "'Rah for Bel-vy Lockwood." During the remarks of A. W. Herr a rampant Cleveland man began to shout the praises of his candidate. The disturbance was allayed, however, by the removal of "tbo tool of monopolies," as Mr. Herr styled the uproarious Democrat. J. P. Dusey held that laborers were cutting each other's throats in their competition for employment, and that the bosses were taking advantage of tho carnage to stuff theirown pockets. All the Chicago papers hud joined in this conspiracy of capital ugainst labor. At the close of tbe meeting a largo number of inflammatory papers were distributed among the crowd. JOURNEYMEN PLCMUEItS. The journeyman plumbers at their regular meeting yesterday at the corner of Adams and La Salle streets reported an extraordinarily busy season for the trade owing to the erection of many new buildings, some ranking with the 11 not structures in the United States. The contract for the plumbing work of the new Insurance Exchange building, recently let, is considered as tbo largest job ever given to one plumbing firm in Chicago, and ttie plumbing on tne uew Board of Trade Building and the Home and Royal Insurance Buildintrs was let out in contracts of almost equal magnitude, giving work to many that paid them well. The union Journeymen have now no dealings with the masters' association, and any differences that arise between them are ignored by both bodies. When changing places tbe journeymen refuse to present tbeir discharge papers to their new employers, as a flat on the books of the masters' association provides. Help being scarce, ttie man usually gels the place he seeks, and this is regardod by the union as a great victory. At present plumbers are getting good wages. SHE TRIED TO ELOPE. FAILING IS THIS, SHE ATTEMPTED BCICIDE. A domestic tragedy In threo acts and innumerable tableaux was performed last week in a fashionable boarding-house on Calumet avenue, near Twentieth street, the leading characters being a runaway wife and a deserted husband. The minor characters were an excited landlady, a confused expressman, and an exceedingly interested crowd or boarders. A very estimable young business-man got married in Boston some three years airo and came to Chicago to make his fortune in the dry-goods trade, opening a store here. He was about 25 j-ears old, good-looktng and intelligent, aad bis wire was a pretty blonde about live years His junior. Moreover, be was desperately in love with his wife, and as for her. sh likorl bim well enough to marrr him. at lenat But in less than two short years vain bickcr- FREE FLOWERS. THE SOUTH PARK CLEARING FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE PUBLIC The work of clearing" out the flower-beds in tbe South Park system will begin this morning on the Drexel boulevard, and, during its progress, which will extend over two or three days, the generous custom of giving away to tbe first comers all plants not needed for seed ing will be observed. There are altogether some 250,000 flowering and foliage plants, com prising innumerable varieties, in the Drexel boulevard, Fifty-brst street, and in Jackson and East Park. Of these not above one-tenth will be removed to the green-houses, so that tho distribution to the publio will be very liberal. Although tne worn or uprooting them begins three or lour weeks later than last year. to the ordinary observer it appears that it might be deterred anotber week or two. Very many of the plants are still in flower, as radiant and fragrant as in midsummer. The genial sunshine and warm winds of tne ast lew weeks, from which their unwonted hardiness lias been derived, are causes that are accountable also for tbe absence of autumn tints from the tree foliage. Except tbe creeper family, tne leaves or wnicu ai-ea vivid crimson. the leaves or hardly a tree in the pans have yet been touched by tne pencil or trout. They are. in fact, a second growth forced by tbe unsea sonably warm weather, ami, in the opinion of the park gardener, will not in gorgeous col ors give notice that their time has come to fall. but win simply turn biacK, curl up, and rot in less than the usual time.. THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE: MONDAY, OCTOBER 2U, 1834 TEX PAGES logs and recriminations took tbe place of affectionate speeches. Tbe little blonde was as a "mourner clothed with regret," and pined within the prison walls of her boarding-bouso for the gayeties of tbe Hub. She went off on a visit to her relatives at the East, and did not want to come back, though ber husband waited ber return with much impatience. Finally tho husband went after bis wife, and she came back. Within a very short period there was war once more in Arcadia. They were not ex actly lovers' quarrels cither. Ihey were the quarrels of husband and wife quite a diff erent thing. The result was that two weeks ago the blonde had all her plans laid to run away. She bad ber trunk packed and roped, and ordered an expressman to call for it. But the expressman called for it before she got back to the bouse, and tbe landlady, strenuodsly deny ing that there was anyone leaving, ordered the expressman from the house as a thief. The rattled expressman, not knowing the delicate nature of the job he had undertaken, raised a row, and the tin a I result of tbe matter was that tbe husband got borne before tbe trunk bad left the house and discovered the whole busi ness. Then that husband and wife held a little stance in their private room, the proceedings of which were beard pretty plainly from basement to mansard roof. Next day a panic was created and tbe whole household paralyzed by the wife's attempt to commit suicide: she swallowed, so far as the facts can be sifted, somewhere about an ounce of laudanum, but where the drug was procured is a mystery. With great presence of mind the distracted husband, aided by tbe no less distracted landlady and many sympathizing fellow-boarders, applied 6trong emetics, clutching his wife by the throat all the time to make ber kep her mouth open. and eventually death lost the battle and tbe lady the laudanum. According to a servant's story tt. was by no means a romantic episod " they emptied Quarts of melted butther into her." she said. But this was probably an ex aggeration. Tbe wife went to bed sick and sorry, but not defeated. A week later, when the husband got home from his day's work. the bird had flown. She and her trunks and all thereto appertaining had been taken to the depot durtntr the day and were then on their way eastwards. It would ill become the reporter to attempt "to picture the husband's sorrow and despair or the lively manner in which the boarders consumed tbeir supper. The husband now shuns oil social intercourse. cries all night, walks the streets all day, and refuses to bo comforted. It is stated that tbe husband has taken the preliminary steps towards securing a divorce, and if a tithe of the rumors in the neighborhood are true be has many serious grounds for complaint which are not touched upon here. SANDWICH SERVICES. PASTOR KIRKLANO MORALIZES ON THE LOSS OF HIS PANTS. The services yesterday at the Church of the Holy Sandwich, of which the Rev. A H. Klrk- land is the pastor, and which worships in what is now called the Adelphi Gospel Theatre, located over a livery-stable on Canal street. near Madison, were of an unusually interesting character. This seems to have been fore seen as early as Saturday evening by tbe Evil One, wbo endeavored to put a damper on them by sending one of his emissaries to go through the ante-rooms of tbe sanctuary and steal all the janitor's clothes, except the very few that he bad on when be went out, and also the only $10 pair of Sunday pants of the pastor himself. Mr. Kirkland's parishioners consist entirely of tbe patrons of the cheap lodging-bouses of this vicinity, long since admitted to be the worst in tne city, and the main feature of tbe services is the free break fast which is served in connection with them every Sunday morning. This breakfast usually consists of a very large, honest sandwich and a pint of good coffee. But a placard displayed at the front door yesterday announcing that a piece of pumpkin pie was to be added to tbe bill of fare brought out a somewhat larger and more devcut-leokmg congregation. Mr. Klrk- land is a good talker, but believes that talk is cheap, and talks very little at these meetings. There is a great deal of good singing, interspersed with prayer, then a chapter in tbe Scriptures is read, with a brief comment, and then every one frees bis mind. After that comes tne breakfast. During his Scripture lesson ys4wd!r oraraiog llx. .td Biade a feeling reference ft bis misting pants. He said he b 4 seen rue time when he would have mel lowed tbe head of tbe thief that stole bis clothes. But since he became a Christian he bad cherished no resentments toward bis enemies. He didn't know but the man might be in the congregation tben : and if be was he wanted to assure him of his forgiveness. He couldn t exactly offer bim bis "cloak also, as he was destitute of such a garment, but he would promise him that, if be would make him self known, be would have the pants cut to fit him and endeavor to get bim a job so that he could live without stealing. In tbe course of the meeting the janitor also spoke and ex pressed tbe same forgiving feelings toward the sneak. He said that tbe loss was a heavy one to him, but that in the providence of God it bad already been more than made up to bim from an entirely unexpected source. The oreakfast was an interesting scene. About 160 men received a meal, which, com pared with tbeir usual diet, was sumptuous. The pies were uncommonly good, and the con gregation evidently enjoyed them almost as' much as they did the prayers and hymns. Iso one need suppose that because Mr. Klrk- land feeds his flock with sandwiches and pies that the attention of bis congregation is di verted from spiritual things by It. The meeting yesterday morning was ona of deep solemnity. It is doubtful whether there was another church in tbe city where there was more ten der feeling, more sorrow for sin, and more real longings for a better life than there were yes terday at the Church of tbe Holy Sandwlcb. THE CHURCHES. Biahorj McLaren Preaches at the Consecration of Grace Episcopal Church. A JAPANESE DIN NEK IX LONDOX. One of the latest additions to the attractions of the Health Exhibition is tbe Japanese restaurant, where a real Japanese dinner, prepared by native cooks, and served in Japancso fashion, is to bo bad lor four shillings. Tho Japanese cuisine has no strange meats to offer. comparable to bird's-nest soup or becbe de mer, and the menu is calculated to satisfy the curiosity rather than the appetite of a hungry Briton. The first soup there are two, one at the beginning and one at the end is delicious; not unlike tbe stock of Julienne or gravy soup. but with an added Savor worth knowing. The little bowl of rice is very much what a teacup-ful of plain rice, well boiled, would be at any English table; but the wine of the country. men one is invitea to tae with it. is ratner uite cowsup mixed with in different Sauterne. The small platter of salmon and prawns Is tasty enough. and the cucumber, with shredded shrimps, or something like tbem, in a separate bowL needs no Improvement, but tbe whole does not go well with -a cupful of substance looking like haricot beans beautifully boiled and well sugared. A nice piece ot fried fish, sole or wliitins have they soles in Japan? served with exquisit sauce, is followed by the second Soup, which completes the repast. There is a novel sensation in finding oue's food served on porcelain or papier macbe, which looks as if it cume from the drawing-room rather than tbe Ititcben, and there is the pleasing perplexity of rylng to eat with chopsticks, and finding one a self as clumsy as one's neighbors, until hunirer compels a demand for a fork. It may be added that the cosmopolitan champagne goes admira bly with the dinuer, and that during the later hours of tbe evening the tables are crowded: but we must repeal that it is curiosity rather than hunger which is satisiicd.

McPherson Describes Forms of Christian Slavery Other Sermons. the the GRACE EPISCOPAL FORMAL CONSECRATION OP THE CIICRCH SER MON BY BISHOP M'LAREN. Grace Episcopal Church, of which tbe Key. Dr. Clinton Locke has been rector tor twenty-five years, was consecrated by BishojJ McLaren yesterday morning in tho presence of a large congregation. The altar, reading-desk. and candelabra were tastefully decorated for th nerKlnn with flowera and festOOOS of evergreens. Tbe Bishop was met at tbe en trance of tbo church by the rector, clergy, church-wardens, and vestrymen, who marched in procession down the aisle to the chancel. repeating the Twenty-fourth Psalm. A. Tracv T.av. on the nart of the vestry, read the articles of donation and endowment, which he presented to the Bishop. The Bishop then rend the service for the conse cration of churches, in the course of which the Rev. Dr. Clinton Locke read the Sentence of Consecration, which the Bishop laid on the altar. The words of consecration were then pronounced bv the Bishop, who thereafter went through the order for morning prayer. assisted by the Rev. Dr. Clinton Locke, Rev. George Todd, and the Rev. Dr. Stone. Bishop McLaren then preached an appro priate sermon from the text: Then Samuel took a stone and set it between Mizpeh and Mien, and called the name of It Kbeu- ezer, saying. Hitherto hath the Lord helped I. Sam., rii., 13. "Though this church," said the preacher, "Is for the first time consecrated today, it has for many years been dedicated to sacred purposes. It has not been vour own until now, but nevertheless it is surrounded with the tenderest associations of which Christian feeling is capable. This is not a formal service but tbo suitable culmination of long years of earnest work and usefulness. When Grace Church first started it was the day of small things it was but a tender and fragile sprout, for which no man could have predicted such a remarkable growth and prosperity. The Bishop tnen referred at length to the various agencies by which tbe church bad been exerting its influence on tbe community around. Grace Church, like the Anglo-Ameri can Church in general, had not voiced itseir with scenes of fanatical excitement and Quixotism, but had quietly and silently done a work which he could not begin to measure. The Analo-Americao Episcopal Church, bad good grounds for hopefulness at the present day. It did not make emotion tho test of salvation, and consequently bad not to resort to ususual means to keep up the ferment of excitement. It produoed none of that kind of religion which made a man appear to be soaring to the seventh heaven yesterday. and then groveling in immorality today. Their church looked to the objective as well as the subjective in religion, and while on the one hand it did to depreciate religious leeltnirs. it did not, on the other, attach too much import- ancj to forms and ceremonies. Men were not asked in their church to give assent to a mass of man-made theology, but directed to the great historic truths of Christianity and the duties to which these truths predicated. There was little of the evanescent that makes a noise in the world and tbe sensation that is only temporary. Their progress was of that true kind which did not register itself in tbe papers. nor live by blowing its own trumpet. The Bishop in closing referred to the rector as a man, who, during his twenty-five years' incumbrance, had gained the respect, con fidence, and affections of tbe people. It was no light work for a man to be pastor of the same flock for twenty-five years in Chicago, where there was so much migration from one parish to another, and so much of that strange faculty for usurping the function of teacher and exhorter. He trusted that tbe church which had been consecrated today would never be devoted to other than 6acred purposes. THE FAITH LIFE. DR. THOMAS DISCUSSES QrESTIOXS OP BELIEF AND DOUBT. Dr. Thomas preached yesterday at tho Peo ple's Church on: " Questions About the Religi ous Faith Life." in some 01 its many tonus, witn various re sults, the subject of religion came to alb Many were troubled with doubts, often with a posi tive unbelief. It was hardly to be supposed that these doubts arose from a mental per-verseness or lrom any happiness that could arise from such a state of mind, for in other things these people were ready to believe upon evidence even where the facts presented were not pleasant. That fact went to show that in other things tbe mind was made for truth: truth lor the mind. People used to believe upon authority, being told that certain things were so the statements were on that ground accepted. What the priest said was final. Today thoughtful people were willing to respect tbe learning of the clergy and the voice of the church so far as they were worthy of respect, but the age of authority had gone lorever. Now men appealed not to men but to tbe truth itself, tbe truth as it com mends itself to the Individual conscience. Tbe mistake of the present generation was in supposing that the old conceptions of religious faith were the real, tho only foundations of faith; that to deny them is to deny religion. It was anotber mistake to suppose that all the mysteries of religion must be explained. It was proper to have the faith in which a man Is to walk made plain, but there must be some of the unattainable and unknowable in religion as in everything else about us. To know how sweet It is to be free one must stand in the place of the learner and witness the unfolding of the law of love. With tbe little that we know religion should be trusted as everything else is. tbe man with a purpose to live bis religion. leaving off the wrong and turning earnestly to the right, exalting all be has of truth and set ting an example of kindness in the borne and society. Tbe trustful soul would see all tbe darkness melting in tbe daylight ot God. GOOD AND EVIL. PROF. SWING FISDS THAT THE WORLD IS GROW ING BETTER. Prof. David Swing preached at the Central Church yesterday morning on "Good and Evil." He said that from the time the world began there bad been an incessant warfare be tween the two, and it was a mystery that the 1,200,000,000 of people of the earth were still engaged in tbis same contest. The good was always opposed by tho evil, the evil by tbe good. Tbe missionaries were ing the lessons oi Christ in but whisky and revolvers were ing the religion. The cat and theology of the bast Indian might pass preach- India, follow- borse away. but drunkenness was making Calcutta like New York. The natives were abandoning their old philosophy, but in tbe new age of reason tbe native brain was vexed with such new questions as bow to raise more wheat than is grown in the L nited States, bow to be a rail road official or a merchant king. Thus the warfare went on continually, and whenever one evil was mastered a new one sprang up. It was like the war with tne dragon seen in St. John's vision of the clouds. Tbe dragon was a beast invented to personify the essence of evil, and poetry bad also invented the Angel Michael to represent tbe good or moral influence by which his progress is opposed. The western nations had found the light of art and the light of manufactures, but their gains must pass through the hands of gamblers. The cabins of tbe beautiful steamships are filled with men who bet on the daily progress of the magnificent instrument, The railway coaches of this golden age are often filled with men who belong to the age of Nero. Paris was said to he at once tbe heaven and tbe bell. Thus with one lame foot progress bad ever made her way. The dark ages had to go without the Bible, but they also went without whisky. In the railroad trains or today one man carried his book and another bis flask. The country was made and injured by the railroads. An English publication had not long since con tained the statement that only one railroad in tne imteo states bad bad an honorable life from the start, and the glory of almost every flying train is tarnished by its history. As modern vioe wore no cloak it needed no Doetnr to speak about it. The Btory of Adam and Eve is the historv of the race. We were alt in tbe garden and could choose between the rood and evil. Others passed out when our generation filed into tha garden. It was formerly held that onlv Adam and Eve bad lived in tbe garden, and that we had inherited their sin- Better than such a theory is tbe one that we are all in the garden. It would be a pity to charge upon Eve the sin of our lives. We bad tbe same right to make the choice of good or evil that she had, and the millions of church people had long enough laid tbe 6in upon Adam. They were too ready to seek some antideluvian excuse for their own wrongs. It Is an emblematic story, and tbe gall of bitterness which came of their misdeeds was tbe same that awaits other transgressors today. The garden was full today or human beiugs, some sitting, some standing, some dying, and some moving on towards eternal life, every heart having the ' right to choose Its own course. The story of Adam and Eve in the beginning of the Bible, and the vision of John, reported at the close, were one. Men once discussed tbe question how God had ever permitted evil to get into the world, but tbis led to tbo other question as to how he had permitted tbe good to exist, and tbe inquiry was abandoned, it being agreed to accept tbe world as it is, with its beauty and deformity. Its laughter and its tears. In tho long wandaringsof futurity the drag on might dwindle and . leave tne worm au bright in its millennial . glory, for the world was unquestionably growing better, rnuan-thropists continue to rise up like palm-trees in the desert. After Socrates and Pluto bad come Jesus Christ. Iu the dark age iu which He came Herod and Pilate had feared and Felix trembled when He taught "Blessed are the pure in heart," and " The soul that sin- netb, it shall die." While in the remote ages there were always men of virtue whose songs and voices had risen above the din of battle, mankind had steadily refused to have a good or beautnul world. Art in perieci oeuuiy must flsrht aeainst art in low sensuality, and for every canvas of beauty the dragon had set up a canvas of low sensuality, For every pure , - Virgil there was a Horace with a black page, lor every 1 nomas a Kenipis a Rabelais. A man in a good bus ness in a new country would steal more than anotber in a bad business in an old country. Give him the right to vote and he studs the ballot-box. It was a clear case of knowing the better and selecting the worse. The majority of the followers crow less every year, so one could imaarine a colden asre some time to come. There was anotber side to the picture. No tongue could tell tne virtue of the world or count the multitude in pursuit of good. Tho good would be preserved and the evil winnowed out. While the end must come witn a tnumpn for tne Sou of God, the evidence of His person al return was wanting. 1 ? CHRISTIAN. SLAVERY. - . - - ITS VARIOUS PHASES SET FORTH By THE BET, 8. J. M'PHSRSON. The Rev. S. J. McPherson preached last even ing in the Second Presbyterian Church tbe third of a series of 6ermons on "Some Neg lected Points for Christian Voters." hi? subject being " Existing Slaveries in the United States.' The text was; If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disci pies indeed; and ye shaH know the troth, and the truth shall make you free. John, nil., !H3. Slavery, said the speaker, which was the un warrantable subjection of one to another, bad always been an anomaly in our country. It bad not prmarily been derived from the sanction of law. but from the selfishness of human nature. which always played its tattoo. It arose from tho ambition of mastery and tbe desire to live through the sweat of another's brow. One al most Inevitable tendency that retarded the spread of civilization arose from the peculiar mixtures of race in our country. Blood was thicker than water, and nationality was only an enlarged love of self, it was not strange that the different nationalities and races in our country should develop some forms of slavery, but ' rather - that . we should be so free from slavery as we are. Who could harmonize tbe aborigines. tne Mongolians, ana tne Africans into one harmonious Christian system? Tbe Indians numbered 41,000 In I860, and yet they were 811 herded on reservations, which they never chose, deprived of the rights of civil law, and pauperized by a system of 6t ate relief. The Mongolians in 1380 numbered 105,000, of whom three-fourths were in one State. , They had increased by 42,000 in ton, years and 71,000 in twenty years. Some said that large numbers of them sold out tbeir freedom before coming by contracting out to companies. Our Government bad been Intimidated by a hood lum mob to declare the Golden Gates closed for ten years, while no other port in the Union was shut to even dynamite plotters; and Gov ernment paupers lrom other countries. He pitied the Christianity that bulwarked itself behind tyrannical law. Such despotism was better for Turkey than America, and more characteristic of Mahomet than Jesus Christ. There were seven bullions of Africans in tbe United States, of whom seventy-five out of every 100 were the absolute slaves of illiteracy. , Since emancipation tbe negroes had degenerated in morality: Every seventh man in tbe population was an African, and that race was increasing out of all proportion to other races here. Class slavery, as shown In the worship of Mammon, was auotner menace to our civilization. Even our churches were not clear of it. for the best as well as tbe worst of us could not leave our sinful natures outside tbe church door. Ecclesiastical slavery was far too abundant. , The Roman Catholic Church was growing enormously rich here, while exercising the most absolute despotism known in our tree country. A similar despot ism was found in the newer hierarchy of Mor- monism, which claimed, like Roman Cathol icism, the most absolute power over all its votaries, both in this world and the next. Slavery, too, was no less unknown among the Protestant sects. What an affront to the lov ing Savior and a delight to the grinning Devil it was to see Protestant Christianity drawn and Quartered among contesting sects. It was no remedy to pass ' from one sect to another, and it one stepped from all sects, be only added another to the list. Seceders tried to extract the mote from each others' eyes by mustard plasters and vitriol lotions. We should remember that positive convictions and charitable temper were not incompatible. The preacher closed with a brief reference to moral slaveries. He rejoiced in the agitation against the curse of strong drink, while deprecating many of tbe methods adopted by temperance reformers as erroneous in principle and hurtful to other moral interests. The emancipation of criminals and the subject of discharged convicts was an impor tant subject which was receiving only fitful and sentimental consideration. Tbe most dead ly slavery of all was lust. It ruined not only tbe character and health, but tbe eternal hopes of its victims. To neglect this vice while point ing out others was mere prudery. The fundamental cause of all these slaveries lay in sin against God. The remedy lay not on moral reform, but was to be reached through Jesus and His Gospel the Universal emancipation for all mankind. FAST TRAVEL. THE REV. T. B. GREEN TAKES THE RAILROAD WAR ON WHICH TO POINT A MORAL. ' At the Eighth Presbyterian Church last night the Rev. Thomas E. Green preached on " Cut Rates to All Points West," His text was: So be paid the fare thereof and went. Jonah t, S. This verse, Mr. Green said, gave the only evidence to the people of the nineteenth century that 3,000 years ago transportation com panies exacted a tariff from all passen gers over their . lines. The 6acred writer should also, have stated in this connection to what extent it was then customary to water stock. Jonah had taken the Journey indicated in tbe text In op position to God's will, and he found it event ually the most expensive trio of his life. In like manner a young man had gone to Omana a lew days since on a cut rate, but when that young man had paid $20 to return where be paid l going, he learned to his sorrow that he should look before be leaped that be should count tbe cost before be took the cheap road in his journey of life. . The majority of men in this world were trav eling on cut rates to the objects of their am- oitions. on bicycles. , wheelbarrows, veloci pedes, and railway trains, men were dolmr their best to get at tbe foot of the spiritual mount. Right was the un-erade and wrong was the down-grade of this hill. The men wbo paid the most for traveling went the farth est and accomplished the most. The men who sowed most in this life would reap most bountifully in tbe life to come. The short cuts which genius was supposed to make in attaining success were generally dishonest, only the long, steady work tbe lonir passaire and ton full fare was the means bv which the honest man got the object of bis ambition. Under the guise of genius many men were trylug to steal the . rewards of ' perseverance. In the wilderness Christ was offered a cut rate bv the DeviL but He chose tbe long, bard, costly journey, which tootsore and weary He pursued for three vearo. Today tbe Devil was offering a cut rate to every amoitious mau. Thousands of young men were giving their birthrights of honor and purity for tbe Devil's mess of pottage. Sin was the great nromisor of cut rates. F.vprr youth, however, should remember, if he accept one ot mose rates, that tbe young man who went to Omaha for $1 paid $20 to get back. The awful expense of the eut rate would be shown on the books of the Judgment-Day. Then the nours, tne days, the months, tbe rears, tbe de cades of wasted time and lost opportunities would be 00 the debtor's side of tbe account. A SERMON TO YOUNG MEN. BV THE REV. M. M. PARKHCRST FULL OF GOOD ADVICE. The Rev. M. M. Parkhurst, pastor of Grant Place Methodist Episcopal Churcb, last even-. ing preached to young men, selecting for his subject, "Take Your Choice." He chose for his text: : 4 Ask what I shall give thee. L. Kings,, Hi., 5. The preacher opened his discourse with a word-picture of the view of Jerusalem from the spot where was deposited the " memorial pillars" of tbe pilgrims visiting the Holyi City. It was to tbis spot that Solomon came to offer ' sacrifices to Jehovah. Tbis was Gibeon. One night. while asleep, the Lord appeared to bim in a dream and put to him tbe question in tbo text. Thus God came to us all. Every noble impulse was the act of God. Thus hunger was an impulse, and told us what to do. Prayer to God was an inspiration from God. Our souls lay dormant until by the inspiration of God they were incited to speak. Every hope of the soul was a direct blessing from God. Solomon seemed to have boon ready, even as he went to sleep thinking of bis weakness and God's greatness, to ask tor that which he most needed, yet be was bumble, for be responded, " I am but a . little child." So be asked God to give bim an understanding heart to judge bis people, that he might discern between good and bad. He asked for wisdom, in fact, not knowledge. Wisdom was not knowledge, but the use of it. Solomon knew all nature, yet what be most desired was the power to see right from wrong, and God gave it to bim. Most men tailed through Hie from want of courage and perseverance. The difficulty was in the outset. Such men should seek God to help tbein. There were very few men but wbo might make a success if they would only exercise the judgment God had given them, for He gave every man a choice. As a child the choice has to be made between God and the world, and if he chooses right be will succeed. In bis future career he has only to respond to tbe Great Master's interrogation, "Ask what I 6hall give thee," and so surely would God belp bim; that is, if the choice was one that God could prosper. If be asked for wisdom God would give it to bim ; and not only so, but do as be did with Solomon bestow riches upon him. The right choice will tben have been made. To so succeed let every young man make bis peace with God and gain tne prize of a worthy, good, and faithful servant. A FOOL AT FLINT. tVJgr no Studebaker Bros.'

A DUMB FRIEND'S RETCRX. -Myrtle: In the early summer Eddie Howard had a present of a starling. It was a young bird when it was given bim. The mother had been accidentally killed, leaving three little fledglings in the nest. Eddie accepted his present on tbe condition that be was to be very kind to the little motherless bird and do the best he could to keep it alive. It took a great deal of care at first, but Eddie was very fond of pets and he was quite willing to give all needed attention. The bird lived, grew, and became very interesting. Eddie kept it - at first in a cage, but it became so tame and so fond of Its master that be allowed it to follow him all over tbe bouse, and afterward he ventured to let it go with him in the open air. lor a long time tbe bird never wandered away from the vicinity of the house, and seemed en tirely happy with its human companions. But to the surprise and grief of the entire family. wuen ids wua Diras went away southward in the autumn Eddie's starling was m!ssin. and they knew that he must have been killed or bad gone with the migrating birds to some Southern home. Eddie grieved for bis loss, and It was many weeks before he could look at the empty cage without a pang of sorrow. One day after tbe winter snows came, Eddie, sitting at the window, saw something buttering in the bushes close to the wait He ran out to see what it was, and to bis delight found his own dear bttle starling nearly perished witb the cold. To whatever summer reoions it had mi grated its little heart bad pined for the old places and its old friends, and the homesickness bad brought it all the long iournev back to its master's arms once more. Eddie was a happier boy than he had been for many weeks when be carried his pet triumphantly into tbe house and exhibited him to the family circle. ' Pretty Women.

Special Correspondence. An Illustration of the sublimity of Bourbon cheek has come to iignt in me Demoeratio attemnt to bulldoze the Oliver Chilled-Plow Works and the Studebaker Bros.' Manufacturing Company of tbis city. Jerome Eddy ol Flint, Mich., is the Chairman of the Democratic State Central Committee of that State. Recently be addressed the following impertinent letter to both, these prominent manufacturing establishments: A CHEEK OF FLINT. Flint. Mich., Oct. 11. Wiper ChOled-Plow Worfes, South Bend, Ind. Messrs.; We have received from your city complaints from Democratic voters that you attempt to influence tbeir action upon election-day. A member of our committee was througb South Bend a short time ago. and made careful inquiries into tbis charge, and from what ho learned, the impression certainly exists that the charge Is well founded. To make it more dednit. it is stated that your employes are given to understand that any man late to work or absent election-day will forfeit bis position, and that after they go to work, influence is brought to bear upon them to vote the Republican ticket, and that those who intend to vote that ticket and work for it are permitted to get off and go to tbe polls. This charge has even been made to our puDlic press; and we nave witn aimcuny suppressed it until we bear from you. 1 ou have thousands of customers in this State, many of whom, sympathize with tbe Demo cratic cause. It seems to me that it such a charge . as that is getting abroad, especially among laboringmen, it would have a very serious effect . upon your standing . as employers. and upon your business, It it be untrue, a - wise action, to disarm all suspicions and calumny. would be to shut down for a half-day, or day. in order to permit all your employes to vote freely and deliberately; and to also issue to your men a short address, to tbe effect that they are at perfect liberty to vote as they see fit. I should think such a course would be dic tated by policy, as well as by fairness; for, as you know, four years ago the Democrats of Indiana, and Michigan especially, were very indignant at several South Bend concerns for in fluencing their employes. Whether you did or not, I am of course unable to say personally; but from what we beard in your city it would seem as though a certain amount of influence bad been brought to bear upon them.- Cer tainly a feeling of indignation exists. If you adopt my suggestions as to closing down and issuing an address, kindly let me bear from you at once, and we will take the greatest pains to have all unpleasant charges and items suppressed in our Michigan press. I certainly tbink some assurance is due tbe Democrats of South Bend and Indiana, and that you will not attempt in any way to influence your employes, and that it is due your friends and customers in this State, as South Bend is so close to the border, that its effect reaches us. An immediate reply Will greatly oblige yours very respectfuby, Jerome uddt the retort courteous. To this impudent letter the Oliver Chilled Plow Works immediately mailed the following reply: - South Bend. Ind., Oct. 12. Jerome Eddy, Esq., Flint, Mich. Dear Sir: We beg to acknowledge tbe receipt of your communica tion 11th in St., and, in replying to tbe same. please understand that we do so in accordance with that rule of courtesy which dictates proper attention to all communications received by us, and not because we recognize your right to interfere in our business or make suggestions regard m tne conduct ot tne same. We notice by the printed beading of your letter thai you are Chairman of the Miohigan Democratic State Central Committee, and, al though your letter is not signed as such, tbe presumption is fair that you write in your official capacity. Acting upon : tbis presump tion, we shall endeavor to treat your com munication fairly and to meet the charges made against us. Permit us to say, first, that the Implied threat to have all unpleasant charges and items published In the columns of the Michigan press in case we do not accede to your request. will have no influence upon us whatever, and we shall continue to conduct our business in our own way, as we have for many years past. without regard to the wishes of any political party or its managers. the charges denied and the democrats AFRAID TO INVESTIGATE THEM. Tou say." we have received from your city complaints from Democratic voters that you wej attempt to influence their action upon election-day"; that "a member of our committee was through South Bend a short time ago and made careful inquiries into this charge. and from what be can learn the impression cer tainly exists that the charge is well founded." Allow us to remark that if your representative really wighed to arrive at the facts in tbe case it would have been only fair on bis part to have called upon us. He would have been allowed free and unrestricted access to our works, could have talked witb tbe men himself. and arrived at a conclusion without accepting er-parte testimony given uy interested parties. Once for all we say that this and timilar chargtt are utterly without foundation. Our men vote as they please, and we exercise or attempt to exercise no undue influence upon tbem. Two years ago these same charges were brought to the attention of the Democratic Legislature of our State and a great deal of bluster was indulged in, but when we respectfully asked for an official investigation the Republicans voted for and tbe Democrats voted against it, and there being a large Democratic majority our petition was tabled and never resurrected, showing conclusively that there was no foundation for tbe charges. Tbis ought to be satisfactory to our Democratic friends (yourself iu particular, who show such disinterested anxiety for our business success), but we do not indulge tbe hope that it will, and for some months we shall expect to bear the charges repeated and attempts made to injure our business in consequeuce. WHY THE PLOWMAKERS ARE REPUBLICANS. That there has been a change in tbe political affiliations of a great many of our men in the last tour years is a fact, and a large number who formerly voted the Democratic, ticket are now acting with tbe Republicans. Tbis has been largely brought about by the free-trade policy of tbe Democratic party, the tendency of which is to act against the best interests of the laboring classes, and this having become apparent to our men they have become earnest Republicans. . . As a further incentive to tbeir change of politics, the defalcation of our Democratic City Treasurer some years ago. with the attempt to cover up same by leading Democrats of this city, has bad an important influence. Possibly you may not assent to this view of tho case, but we believe it to be true nevertheless, and we hope you will accept our statement .with becoming resignation. . - As before stated, ,we do not recognize your right to suggest the conduct of our business, and to that part of your letter we shall make no reply. We fully and gratefully appreciate tbe favor shown us by tbe intelligent and progressive farmers of Michigan, and granting to them the right to vote as they please, we shall continue to furnish them tbe best goods we know bow to manufacture without in the least undertaking to dictate to tbem how they shall conduct their affairs or with what political party they shall act. Very respectfully, Oliver Chilled-Plow Works, short and tart. The Studebaker Bros." reply was short and tart. The officious Eddy was answered as follows: . Office Studebaker Bros.' Manufacturing Compant, Oct. 15 Jerome Eddy, Chairman Democratic Suite (Antral Committee, Flint, Mich. Dear Sir: Yours of the 11th is at hand. We note by yesterday's South Bend Tribune that the same letter was sent by you to tbe Oliver Chilled-Plow Works of this city. Their reply, also published, we heartily Indorse. We fully appreciate your position. You are working for political effect, and we realize that what ever our reply, however fair or Just from an independent or unbiased standpoint, short of compliance with your wishes would not satisfy you. We will only add that our employes are free men, in every sense or the word, and they vote as they please, without solicitude as to the influence tbeir vote will have on tbeir employment by us. Whoever asserts tbe contrary insults their manhood and bears false witness against the facts. Your thinly-disguised threat of boycotting has no force with us. We regard tbis portion of your letter as an Impertinence, - and win simply say in reply to it that about a matter so purely personal to . r....7.-- MARRIAGES.
