How to have a revival of re l i g i o n is here set f o r d i . T h i s i.s ol great importance. The I n s t i l l i n g to have a strong c o n v i c t i o n t h a t revival is needed. W i t h o u t such c o n v i c t i o n no great concern will be manifested. According to the felt need w i l l be tho practical concern for a r e v i v a l of religion. Thero is always need for such. There is great need n o w . As we look abroad lawlessness is prevailing' in the l a u d . Vice and criino are bolder in their manifestations aud more daring along the highways of social i n t e r course, commerce and travel. Very few men are w i l l i n g and s u f f i c i e n t l y brave to speak out against popular sins. Bad politics is d e m o r a l m n the public conscience and c o r r u p t - ing the a d m i n i s t r a t i o n of civil affairs. P u b l i c officials o f t e n are rb creant to t h e i r trust, and wholesome laws are rendered non-effective because of a f a i l u r e to measure up to well-known obligations. Sometime* professed followers of Jesus Christ for gain or office do as sinners do. Even among the officials of our churches are sometimes those who lower the standard of Christian morality and, bring reproach u p o n tho church. Crimes and vices are w i n k ed at and apologized for. In our towu m u l t i t u d e s are in sin. Many are forming habits r u i n o u s aud damning. _Boys and young men are'fast g'oiug to t h e i r t u i n -- as fast as t i m e can carry them. Older ones are becoming hardened iu sin or i n d i f f e r - ent to their soul's salvation. We bave' women who are careless, a n d , instead of l i f t i n g up h u m a n i t y nearer God, lend t h e i r aid toward pluup- iug their fellow-mortals deeper in sin. D r u n k e n n e s s abounds. Homes are made s;id w i t h b i t t e r experiences. Wives, mothers and daughters nrJ crushed into the d u s t . Shame d a u n t s lier rags before the p u b l i c eye and urazen-faced guilt walks at % liberty. Men arc dying in t h e i r sins, going to Christless grave and Christless eternity. M u l t i t u d e s are on tho road o hell. Surely it is t i m e for a revival.

Let us r u n th!c plowshare of God's word through tho leavt a n d life. M a n y are g u i l t y di 1 sins of bmission and commission'. Some have failed ."to attend [the uieaus of grace. Time which sjionld lave been given to God's service has een idled away in foolish aud nu-' irofitable associations. Trifling ex- uses have prevented the perforin- v n c e o f d u l y . Some have failed to ove t h e i r f e l l o w - m e n , for they have suffered t h e m to go right d o w n to icll and didn't seem to care. Amou'g he weeds and thorns to be gotten out of the heart is' worldly-miuded- icss, loving the world too m u c h , aying up treasures on earth in preference to laying them up in Heaven; ilso slander and evil speaking, dc- ieit, lying, cheating or t a k i n g u n due a d v a n t a g e , and hypocrisy ; sometimes robbing God by misspetid- ng time in unprofitable amusements uid conversations, and also spend-' ng God's money for tobacco arfcl- other unnecessary aud h u r t f u l in-; lulgenccs.

THE LATEST SENATORSHIP BALLOT Ucli'H.iU 1 Todd '.Vnntsu liridirr .it Uilpin I'oint. The sessions ol the Lcgislatur this week h a v e been o l ' l i t t l e genera interest outside of t h e contest fo: U n i t e d Stales Senator now in pro grcss. The v o t i n g began in the t w o houses separately on T u e s d a y , a n c t h e candidates were as n u m e r o u s as could be wished by all e l e m e n t s of the d o m i n a n t p a r t y ; t h a t is, n u m e r - ous enough to a l l o w each section of the State a choice. The Baltimore city membeis, part of t h e m , at least, voted for Major Alexander Shaw, of t h a t city; t h e Eastern Shore Republicans gave Congressman Barber a h a l f - h e a r t e d support; the Southern Maryland R e p u b l i c a n s put up ex- State Senator Parran; ex-State Senator Miltou G. Urneiyof Fredeuck, Gen. Thomas J. Shryock, of Baltimore city, Cot. James C. M u l l i k i u , of Easton, and Governor Lowndes were each voted for. But the big gun of tho Republicans is Judge Louis E. McComas. To his standard have rallied more than two- t h i r d s of the Republican members, and behind h i m , it is said, are all the forces the Wellington-Lowudes combine can marshal, as well as the Federal administration. Ou the Democratic side the vote was practically solid for the caucus nominee, Senator Gorrnau, one vote only was cast for Judge H e n r y Pago, of Somerset county. The voting ou Wednesday and Thursday did not i n d i - cate an early solution of the question, shotting- a gain for the leaders, McComas and Shaw, on t h e Rcpuli- ean side, and a f u l l vote for Senator G o r m a n . Congressman. Barber's votes were transferred to Major Shaw on some of t h e ballots on Thursday t h u s n a r r o w i n g the tight to a contest between Baltimore city aud the Sixtli district combine--a fight hopeless for cither faction as loug as the large Democratic m i n o r i t y stands firmly together. Rumors of a willingness on the part of the Demo erats to help the Republicans to settle t h e i r family squabble have been flyiug thick aud fast about our State capital, aud spread" broadcast over [he c o n u t r y by the correspondence of the daily press- Such rumors appear to be w i t h o u t foundation. The :wo ballots ou Friday leave the re- s u l t p r a c t i c a l l y as it was in the bei n n i u g , the alternating votes of the Shaw and Barber forces being a, bit of coquetry that cannot affect the outcome. Tho lasl ballot gave Gor- ·11 an 46, McComas 44, Findlay 2, Shryock 2, Barber 17, and Shaw 1, he two votes of Colonel Mullikiu joing to'McComas. · It is said that Delegate Charles H. Todd will introduce iu the House a )ill a u t h o r i z i n g the counties of Tal- ot and Caroline to construct a Bridge across the Choptank river at 3ilpin's Point. It is said that the ·iver at this point is two h u n d r e d may bo built for $5,000. Quite a number of taxpayers in the two counties, it is said, have signed pcti- lous asking for tho i m p r o v e m e n t . The point t h o u g h t most feasible is ibout half-way between Dover Bridge and D o n t o n , and would, it is aimed, be of great c o n v e n i e n c e to uany people in the sections far re- noved from the bridge ou either side.

From ike Wilmington Every Keening. "Who w i l l be appointed presiding elder of W i l m i n g t o n district of the W i l m i n g t o n Methodist Episcopalcon - fcrence?" "Who will bo assigned to t h e p r e s i d i n g eldership of the Dover district?" These questions arc fre- q u e n t l y asked in Methodist circles and will often be repeated during the next two months. They will be officially answered during the" later part of March by Bishop John P. Newman, at the a n n u a l session of ' t h e conference, w h i c h will be held at Lewes. The replies made meanwhile will be purely speculative.. For the W i l m i n g t o n d i s t r i c t , the general opinion is t h a t Rev. Ezra Tinker, LL. D., pastor of Asbury C h u r c h , or the Rev. W. L. S. Murray, D. D., pastor of St. Paul's Church, will be chosen; for the Dover district, the Rev. Vaughn S. Coll i n s of Georgetown and the Rev. S. M. Morgan of Snow Hill are classed foremost as posibilities. Should Dr. Tinker bo selected for^ the Wilmington district, his opponents assert, there will be a "hot time in the old town." By this they mean that his appointment would uot give complete satisfaction, and that trouble would result. The objections to him, it is stated, are: "He is a 'transfer,' he has not been on tho district long enough to become conversant with its needs or become acquainted with the people and he could not obtain for indigent churches the financial afd they, should receive." He is exceedingly popular as a pastor, but, it is said he would encounter much opposition as a presiding elder. In behalf of Dr. Murray, it is claimed that, having recently held the position of presiding elder of the Wilmington district, he is thoroughly conversant, with its needs and acquainted with the people. It is added that nobody is better qualified to obtain financial aid for indigent churches than he, aud that he is the almost unanimous choice not only of the ministers and laymen of the Wilmington district but of the other districts. Besides his fitness for the office, it is urged that the appointment of Mr. Collins to the Dover district would create at Georgetown, a desirable pastorate, a vacancy that the Rev. Adam Stengle, whose term at Smyrna is expiring aud who, it is said, is at sea as to where he will be stationed nest conference year, might be asked to fill. Presiding Elder Barrett having recommended Mr. Morgan for the Salisbury district when th'e Rev. "Walter E. Avery, D. D., resigned its presiding eldership. it is averred, will recommend htm for the Dover district. Notwithstanding Bishop Newman's alleged intimation that be might make a change ou the Salisbury district, it is_eEpeqtcd'-that the Rev'. Thomr;i will be reappoiuted to its presiding eldership, to which he was recently assigned. It is highly probable that the Rev. Wilbur F. Corkran, D. D., will be reappointed to the presiding eldership of the Easton district. Dr. Avery's health is improving, and he expects to, attend the session of the conference. Ho has" returned from Long Island, will spend the nest two months at Elkton. The Peninsula Methodist mentions the fact that Dr.' Barrett preached at Trinity Church, Chester, last Sunday, and adds:. "That invisible but insuperable division, a conference boundary, is the only hindrance to Dr. Barrett's call to Trinity as pastor." Lakesville circuit and the Wyoming and Greensboro churches, respectively, have invited the Revs. Joseph A. Bucksou, J. E. Graham aud Aloycyis Green to return to their pastorate. The church at Pocomoke City has- decided uot to select at present a successor to the Rov. E. C. Macnichol, D. D., whose term is expiring, but will send to the conference session a committee authorized to make the selection. The committee will,possibly submit the proposition that the Rev. J. ,W. Easley and Dr. Macnichol, the former of Centreville, exchange places. Vlck'H Gimlcu Hiiil Floral iulde.
