Industry, art, commerce and the military were represented in the procession, and in the afwrnoon the celebration was mppleniented by military and band coiitesU, aud by a display of the water works. To the pluck, energy and ability of th Hon. John 1. Martin, whose portrait I given above, Xenia owes her admirable sjstem of water wprks. Mr. Martin, who, by the way, is a brother of ilr. iugh Martin, yard master of the Bee I,lue at Sprlng-licl.I. i. the most enterprising citizen X.enia has ami he deserve all the praise and credit that can be beatowed on him for the manner in which he has fullilled his contract with the city.

Notwithstanding that fact, however, the Tittsburg linn made a blull by orTerlnr verbally to put In the works at an annua! rental of 31.000 loss than the home coin-paio's bid- This stirred up their friends and a great howl went out a:3hist John 1.

Mr. Martin had man) friends, however, and thev stood by him. and notwithstanding the great obstacles with which he was confronted, he can led t.l;p ),? To-lay all the how)s ot tage are changed to shouts of acclaim and praise of Mr. Martinis heard on every side. Wherever lie appe.ued on Saturday men took off their liats to him aud ladies bowed and smiled. His portrait adoiijotl banners stretched across the streets and he was the hero of the celebration. Mr. Martju richly deserves all the praUe he received, for he i n veritahlu prince of good feiioAs, a man of sterling ability, great courage aid never-failing perseverance.

Itev. James V. Mills Addres.es I.Hri;.. AiiiUmr. oil s,Und Commendation of the "Itppiihlif." ifev. James P. Mills, of Cleveland, one of the district secretaries ot the National Reform association, sjicnt Sabbath In the city, and discussed the principles of the society which he represents at three of our leading churches. At the First Lutheran church at lo.:w a '" Mr. Mills sike from the. Mh, 'th and Tth verses of the 07th psalm, "Let the people praise Thee, oh God; Let all the people praise Thee. Then shall the earth jield her increase; and God. ewn our (toil, shall bless us. Gud shall bless ns and all the ends of the earth shall fear Hun." Bev. J. B. llelwlg, D.D, pastor of this church, is a vice president of the N. I J. A., and it was he wh'i had arranged for Mr. Mills's meetings. A large congregation was present, and the audience evidently enjoyed the address which advanced these leading thoughts; The blessing of God is the chief factor in the great problem of national destinv and national perpetuity, as is the spiritual character and Christian activities. So are the environments of any people. The blessings God bestows upon a people whom he loves, who worship anil obey him, are spiritual and temporal. God gives it to suli a people, first to discover and utalize the resources of the domain which they Inhabit: second to discover and utilize the laws of nature. "The secrets of th Almighty are with them' that fear him;" third to discover and develop whit is in man, and especially what is woman, man's epial and entitled b) voice to coiiu- ' and by vote to to help divide great moral ipiestions at tip; ballot box. At 3::10 a snmwl(it smaller audience, owing to til" unusual ho'ir of tho service, satliereifrin the Central M, E. church. Mr. Mills spoke from the Uth verse of thenid Psalm: "B'essed is that nition whose God is the Lord." The leading tlnughts were j Nations have divinities, rr.e as heathen nations have lords in my. Blessed Is that nation whose G.kI Is the G1 of Israel, the Christian's God. Gol Almighty claims sovereign authority over the nations of the earth. He is referred to as "king of nations." "governor amongst the nations." n the ideal go erunjeitt. lpune, i:ith chapter, the pow ers that Imi are declared to be the ministers ofG'd. Other passages were cite!. Christ is presented as "king of nations.' All authority is given unto, hlnj. He is the head of all jirincipulity and power. All things are put under his feet. Unto him every knee shall bow. He is king of kings aud Lord of Lords. The second Phalli waa quoted and cnupqentei upon. The nuestinn was raised whether this nation is a Christian nation in tho sense of the text, one whose God is the Lord. A four-fold msas-ure was Instituted. In suub a novern-meiit. first the misses of the people must believe in God. in Christ, in the Bible and the Christian church! seoomi the iieople in their unrestricted activities mustoonferm goneraliy with the law of God; third the statutory laws must largely conform with the law of Gud in moral legislation; fourth the constitutional or fundamental law must recognise as a bisjsof Christian mora) legislation, lod's S,'Veiel?ntf, OhrsUj kingly character and the Bible as the basis of all moral legislation. It was found that in the first throe particulars tho nation nioasitres fairly up to the staudard, though there be many glaring inconsistencies and divergencies, but as to the fourth, tho constitution Is purely a secu lar document and Is no efficient basis for our Christian. laws. The secular character of oar constitution was the suggestive cause of the organization ot the national iiiDera Leagno. Grjin:.ul to overtnrow all our CiiristUu laws and usages, through the promulgation of tlielitratiir.of this league the character of immigration had changed during the ten years since its organization. John l. Newman. D. I) , of the Metropolitan church. Washington, and Channcey M. I)-pew were quoted in supporting this proposition. Mr. Mills closed by calling attention to the widespread Svbbath desecration, lax divorce laws, the Bible put out of the public schools, and the increasing and organized efforts of the National Liberal lesgue. the socialistic league, the brewers' and distillers' league, all aiming to overthrow our Christian institutions and urged imjted erjort to ovcrcoma them. In tho evening a large an lience greeted Mr. Mills in the First Presbyterian church, and the hour and occasion cilied out 3D. Mills's best etort. His text was Isaiah CO: 1-J. "For tha Nation an! Kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted." Mr. Stills again presented Christ as King of nations and in an address which the Rev. Mr. Falconer, pastor of the church, eulog.zes very highly as a misterly effort, he supported his proposition by arguments drawn from th" nature of governments, the history of nations, in which mention was, made of many nationslong ago overthrown, and France was Used as a niodern illustra tion who. rejeoting God, turning against Christ, having burned the Bible and changed the seventh day of sacred rest and worship into a tenth day ror pleasure, i,od turned her Into the hell of nations anarchy. The history of our otii nation was traced, showing the hand nt God in our ups and downs of natural life. But no brief outline can do justice to the argument. Mr. Mills, in all his addresses, in olo,hig paid a glowing tribute to the marvelous m-owtli and character of the N. W. C. T. V., and presenting tiie claims of the National H'form As-oc'ation upon tho people for support, asked for free-will offering, which being handod to lilm attheclosoof the sen ices, airgreirated over Si, during the day. Speaking of the Sunday newspaper In the afternoon Mr. Mills warmly commended the Uei'I'iii.ic for its position on that line, refusing to publish a Sunday Is-ue. This seutiiueut was heartily applauded in a wav which showed the favi r in which tiie Kkpi hi.ic is held by the better class of the people.

Mrs. Knse Hamilton Makrs an t'nsuccessi fill Attempt to Tak Her Uwn Life. About It o'clock on Saturday night Mrs. lt'ise Hamilton, who lives lu tht third story of Sharp's building on east Main street, at tempted to commit suicide with a razor, Dr. T. M. lleailo was hastily summoned and when he arrived he found the woman I) ing on her bed, raving like a maniac, aid with a cut about two Inches long across her right wrist, from which the blood was Honing profusel). An examination showed that the tendons of the wrist had not been seveied and that only one or two of the small arteries had been cut Officers McAulilTe and Grea-ney arrived sunn after Dr. Ueade. and they held the half crazed woman while the doctor dressed the wound. After the wound had been stitched and the bandages put on Mrs. Hamilton mado a desperate endeavor to tear off the bandagi s. biting at them fiercely. She repeatedly called for the razor with which she had cut herself, declar ing that she wanted to end her life. Sne had frequently told the people in the house that she intended to commit suicide, but they gave little heed to the declaration. Officer McAulirTe was detailed to n rosin In the hou-o Saturday night to see that she did not again attempt to do herself violence. She is reported lunch better today and expresses her sorrow for her rash act. Mrs. Hamilton is about :SC )ears of age and is the mother of four children. She said she wanted to die because she could not support her children, but others in the house said that jealousy of her husband prompted her to attempt her life. Her husband is now working in Kenton and comes home about every ten ways. Four Thousand Tons. Yesterday the Ohio Southern did a lively business and brought in four thousand tons of Jackson coal.

The county commissioners met today in their room in the east county building and passed several bills and transacted other minor business. Thev sold 812,500 worth of Clark county bonds at 6 per cent, running for five years, at a premium of 183, j to the Springfield Savings bank. The Ksv. Samuel P. Dunlap, rpastor of the First Congregational church, delivered last (Sunda)) evening the third of his series of sermons on the general subject, "Springfield 1-nborers." The subject of the discourse was "Aims and Method of Organized Labor, with incidental allusion to strike, lockouts and boycotts." The congregation was so large as completely to fill the comfortable auditorium of the church, and in the congregation were many men locally prominent In the ranks of or. ganized labor. Mr. Dunlap delivered the discourse in an easy, oiT-haud manner, and, at tho same time, with so much earnestness and effect that he, commanded the closest attention of his ai ditors. Since vye looked into each other's eye lastS.inday evening, we have read in the newspapers of things which cause the heat ot every true friend of organiied labor to be tilled with sorrow. would feel almost as if must apolugize for some of these rloiugE, but have never yet met a single thoughtful member of any labor organization who did not. in no uncertain tones, denounce the anarchists and their tendei.cies. Today, the anarchist Is striving to attach himself to organiied labor, snd if he suoeeeda he will certainly prove a dead weight to It a weight that will cause It to stagger If not to fall. As many as three prominent knights ot this city have said to me that they realise this impending dirli -nlty ami were doing all in their power to ward It off. Anarchists are demanding impossibilities and Impracticabilities and threaten to turn over our entire social anil governmental system unless their demands are acceded to immediately. T'uey refuse to take that which, is good, because, they .say, it Is not, perfect. should have little use for a physician who would abandon, all the good in my ptivsicaj bnd,y merely because he femnd. , Utile disease in it. The anarchist magnifies the slight 'disease he finds to enormous pm onions, but he see no go Ml in anything that is not In ac-oorJanoe witli his method, and principles. He is the foe of almost every principle of our social aud governmental sj stems and hope to compel the abandonment of those principles. Perhaps hu Is the foe of these prinoiplea because he is a foe to God. Shcilil the anarchist make common cause with you. friends of organized labor, he would bo to our order as Is the heavy stone to the small skiff both, yvoV.d kurely sink. I Itaye hen told on many hands by the frio.uK of organized labor that they have no belief in tho anarchistical destructlonlst, or iu the doctrine which he promulgate. They believe. I am assured. In society. In the pre.-'. In the government and in the church. Every believer In organized labor should start out wi:h the linn determination of being true to himself, to his fellow man aud to his God 1et him be true to hhnelf and to his fellow man am', he will De true to ood. ror nrotnernaoi among men must rise from the fatherhood of God. Tlie-e anarchist want a new start and expect immediate results, but governmental institutions cannot be built like houses. There is the sam.e different, between the bniidlng of a house and the constructing of a system of government as there is between a wooden man and a man. T.ie one is turned out in an hour and Is still only a block of wood, while the other is the result of years of evolution and gradual development and is a vital principle in the affairs of the world. So is e ery goo,! law and rule of government ma.de. It is a natural and gradual grqwth to which man and God are partners In contributing. I shall not take time now to illustrate bow the laws and governmental institutions of this country havisadvauoed. That they have advanced is apparent to all. Changes so radicl as many of tlie.se hive been, naturally change the conditions under which we live. The fairest and clearest headed men among organized laborers arc willing to agree that, as a rule, the capitalist tries, from his standpoint and circumstances, to be fair in all his dealings, and the capitalist Is willing to concede that the laborer Is fair and just, from his point at view. Both stand side by aide, and it I only those changes that have niturally been brought abojt by time that cauios them to differ in their opinions. The ainvsof organized labor are numerous and eminently proper. First, there Is social enjoyment the fel lowship of kindred minis. That aim n legitiuivte and worthy. Seconlly, might be mentioned mental improvement. The best and most thoughtful among the organizer of labor work particularly to attain that end. But these very organ izers have serious ditnculties to contend with, not from within the ranks of organ ized labor, but from such persons, for example, as George Francis Train, who moved in a meeting of laborers that Powder- ly aud George be no longer recognized and that Htrr Most be placed at the head of labor's friend. Train's notion is that influence is an accident, but the organizer of labor realizes that inftuenco comes from the capability of being intluentiai. Mr. Powderiy said in a rec-nt address : "Our order numbers 600,000, and that COO.000 may mean much and it may mean nothing. If each one among that tiOO.000 works for honor aud has high aspirations the Influence of the Knights will be very great." In tile tegular meetings of organiied laUneisi they are improved by the reading, recitations and discussions of economic questions which they have, and they are thus being fitted to be fail, to be just and to De poweiiui. The third aim of organized labor is era. bodied In an address delivered a short while ago. and briefly stated, it is the "devotion of the order to our government." lu the address I sneak of. patriotisra was the key note. Said the speaker: "Our cause will I . . i. . l .. .l.t.,1. ,.-. f.M I Win, Otll liouotiy niusb mum mat wc suaii use either dynami'e or the sword." This means the fostering in the ranks of organized labor of true doctrines. President Mark Hopkins was once asked what trait In man he most admired and he replied that In man he most admired manliness, and In woman, wouianliues--. Manliness and patriotism must govern the actions of men in tins country or our government cannot survive. The fourth aim of organized labor Is to better the condition of its member and to enlarge their opportunities for social and pecuniary advancement. I his is natural and It is right. I would think that there was something wrong with a horse that would not go from his pasture into a better pasture, and he would b-a strange capitalist who. when his money was earning 8 per cent, would not have it earn 10 per cent, when he could have the ten for the asking. In the earlier history of orzanizod laoor. the readiest plan was often adopted instead of the best. In th way some detects crept Into the organizations, but they are being eliminated as ranidlv as possible. Mr. Powderiy savs that the strike is a last resort that it is a war, not a peace, measure. Mr. Litchman, whose address I referred to but a moment ago. says that if the lockout Is made a criminal offense, or ganized labor will be willing to have the strike and the boycott also made criminal nffpnspfi. The strike, the lockout, the boycott ought never to be used oecause they are war measures, and war measures are always costly. Could our late civil war have been averted by arbitration or otherwise thou- tens of thousand! ox men wm were cut off In their early manhood would now be contributing to the success of the country, but through the operation of war measures their usefulness was taken from the great, broad laud. I once knew of a man who had acquired a snug fortune by honest toil with his hands. He finally went Into a business in which lie employed a large numl.er ot men. He and his empIo)es had a difference of opinion and the emploves struck. The strike was successful in one respect for the employer failed in business because of it but iu other and greater respects It was a failure, for the men were thrown out of good employment anda capitalist w as ruined who contributed largely to the success and prosperity of his coyini'inity. The bloody methods of the lockout, the strike and the boycott cannot be tooVeverely condemned Let the good sense and true theories of the more intelligent men have sway, mid at some not far distant day )ou will see organized labor and capital sitting down together discussing their differences as peers and an adjustment will surelv he n-srlit-ii Make our men intelligent and skillful and a happy and satisfactory settlement of differences now existing will be effected. A knight recently told me that the order was now in the hands of the bst men in the organization. This Is well and as it should be.
