My negative reply then is my negative reply now. The Bible statement agrees with ail physicians, and all physiologists, and all scientists, In saying that the blood is the life, and In the Christian religion It means simply that Christ's life was given for our life. Hence all this talk of men who say the Bible story of blood is disgusting, and that they don't want what they call a "slaughter house religion," only shows their incapacity or unwillingness to look through the figure of speech toward the thing signified. The blood that, on the darkest Friday the world ever,saw, oozed,-or trickled, or poured from the brow, and the side, and the hands, and the feet of tbe illustrious sufferer, back of Jerusalem, In a few liours coagulated and dried up, and forever disappeared; and if men had depended on the application of the literal blood of Christ, there would not have been a soul saved for the last eighteen centuries. Iii order to understand this red word of my text, We only have to exercise as much common sense In religion as we do in everything else. Pang for pang, hunger for hunger, fatigue for fatigue, tear for tear, blood for blood, life for life, We see every day illustrated. The act of substitution Is no novelty, although I hear men tulle as though the Idea of Christ's suffering substituted for our suffering were something abnormal, something disti-essingly odd, something wildly eccentric, a solitary episode in. the world's history; when I could take you out in this city, and before sundown point you to five hundred cases of substitution and voluntary suffering of behalf of another. At 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon go among the places-of business or toll. It will be no difficult thing for you to find men who, by their looks, show you that they are overworked. They are prematurely old. They are hastening rapidly toward their decease. They have gone through crises in business that shattered their nervous system and pulled on the brain. They have a shortness of breath and a pain in the back of the head, and at night an insomnia that alarms them. Why are they drudging at business early and late?' For fun? No; it would be difficult 'to extract any amusement out of that exhaustion. Because they are avaricious? In many cases no,. Because their own personal expenses are lavish? No;' a few hundred dollars would meet all their wants. The simple fact is, tho man is enduring all that fatigue and exasperation, and wear and toar.-to.lteep. his home prosperous. There is an.invisible li«e reaching that store, from that bank, from that shop, from that scaffolding, to a quiet scene a few.blocks away, a few miles away, and there is the secret of that business endurance. He is simply the champion of a homestead, for which he wins bread, and wardrobe,, and education, and prosperity, and in such battle ten thousand men fall. Of ten ibusiness faen wh'om.1 bury, nine die of overwork for others. Some sudden disease, finds them with no power of resistance, and they are gone. L,ife for Jlfe, Blood for blood. Substitution! At 1 o'clock tomorrow morning, the hour when slumber is most uninterrupted, and most profound,' walk amid the flweUIng'houses of the cjty. Here' and there you will (jnd a dim light, he-' cause it is the household custom to Keep » subdued light burning; but most of the houses from base to top are as dark' as though, uninhabited. A merciful God has sent fprth the archangel of sleep, and ho puts his wings ;oyer. the city. But yonder is-a* clear- outside on the win-casement is a glass or pitcher containing food tgv a sick child; the food is set i» the fresh air- Tbii is the sixth nJgh't that'roother h«s sat up with that sufferer. She has to' the last point obeyed tho phj'sJpiau.'s prescription, MO| giving % drop too much or top jit- tje,;* gv, a moment too soon Pi' too late, leMa/yery'Anxious, for she'has chilflrw ; w}th tbe-same prays Slid weeps, each prayer endjflg with a kiss pf the pale JJy %t gt kindness she gets, tbeonJea},' Of perhaps the mother lingers long enough to see a son get on the wrong road, and his foMrter kindness becomes rough reply when she expresses anxiety about him. But she goes right on, looking carefully after his apparel, remembering his birthday with some memento, and when lie is brought home worn out with dissipation, nurses him till he gets well and stai is him again, and hopes, and expects, and prays, and counsels, and suffers, until her strength gives out and she fails. She is going, and attendants, behdihg ovef her pillow, ask her if she has any message to leave, and she makes great effort to say something, but out of three or four minutes of. indistinct utterance they caii catch but three words: "My poor boyl" The simple fact is she died for him. Life for life. Substitution! About thirty-six ycnrs ago there went forth froni our northern and southern homes hundreds of thousands of men to do battle for their country. All the poetry of war soon vanished, and left them nothing but the terrible prose. They waded knee-deep in mud. They slept in snow-banks. They marched till their cut feet tracked the earth. They were swindled out of their honest rations, and lived ott meat not fit for a dog. They had jaws all .fractured, and eyes extinguished, and limbs shot away. Thousands of them cried for water as they lay dying on the field the night after the.battle, and got it not. They were homesick, and received no message from their loved ones. -They died in barns, in bushes, in ditches, the buzzards of the summer heat the only attendants on their obsequies. No one but the infinite God who knows everything, knows the ten thousandth part of the length, and breadth, and depth, and height of the anguish of the Northern and Southern battlefields. Why did these fathers leave their children and go to the front, and why did these young men, postponing the marriage day, start out into the probabilities of never coming back? For the country they died. Life for .life. Blood for blood. Substitution! But we need not go so far. What is that monument in Greenwood? It is to the doctors who fell }u the Southern epidemics. Why go? Were there not enough sick'to be attended in these Northern latitudes? Oh, yes; but the doctor puts a few medical books in his valise, and some phials of medicine, and leaves his patients here in the hands of other physicians, and takes the rail-train. Before he gets to the infected regions lie passes crowded rail-trains, regular and extra, taking the Hying and affrighted populations. He arrives in a city over which a great horror is brooding. He goes from couch to couch, feeling of the pulse and studying symptoms, and prescribing day after day, night after night, until a fellow-physician says, "Doctor, you had better go home and rest; you look miserable." But he cannot rest while so many are suffering. On and on, until some morning finds him in a delirium; in which he talks of home, and then rises and says he must go and look after those patients. He is told to He clown; but he fights his attendants until he falls back, and is weaker and weaker, and dies for people with whom he had no kinship, and far away from his own family, and is hastily put away in a stranger's tomb, and only tho fifth part of a newspaper lino tells us of his sacrifice—his name just mentioned among five. Yet he has touched the _furthest height of sublimity in that three weeks of humanitarian service. He goes straight as an arrow to the bosom of him who said: "I was sick and ye visited me." Life for life. Blood for blood. Substitution! What an exalting principle ' this which leads one to suffer for another! Nothing so -kindles enthusiasm or awakens eloquence, or chimes, poetic canto', or moves .nations, Tho principle is the dominant one in qur religion—Christ the Martyr, Christ the celestial Hero, • Christ the Defender, Christ tho Substitute. No new principle, for it w:is as old as human nature; but, now on a grander, 'wider, higher, .deeper and more world-resounding spale! The shepherd boy as a-. chain* 'plon for Israel with a sling topplod the giant of Philistine braggadocio in the dust; but here is another David who, for all the armies of churches militant and triumphant, hurls the Goliath of perdition .into defeat, the crash of his brazen armor like an explosion at Hell Gate, Abraham had at God's command agreed to sacrifice his son Isaac, aud the same God Just in time had provided u ram of the thicket as a substitute; but here js another Isaac bound to the altar, and no hand arrests the sharp edges of laceration and death, and the universe shivers and quakes and recoils and groans at the horror, AU 5900 men have for centuries been trying tp toll whom thig substitute wa,s like, and every comparison;, in* 8pir«4 and uninspired, evangelistic, prophetic, apostolic, and hunian, falls short, fpr Christ was the Great Unjike.

He came from the top of glory to the bottom of hit* millation, and changed, a circumfer- ehce seraphic for a circumference diabolic: Once waited on by atogels, notf hissed at by brigands. From afar and high tip he came down; past meteors swifter than they; by starry thrones, himself more lustrous; past largef worlds to smaller worlds; down stair! of firmaments, and front cloud to cloud, and through tree-tops and into the camel's stall, to thrust 'his shoulder under our burdens and fake the lances of pain throtlgh his Vitals, and wrapped himself in all the agotiiea which we deserve for our misdoings, and stood on the splitting decks of a foundering vessel, amid the drenching surf of the sea, and passed midnights on the mountains amid wild beasts of prey, and stood at the point where all earthly and Infernal hostilities charged on him at once with their keen sabres ^-our Substitute! * * * The most exciting and overpowering day of one summer was the day I spent on the battlefield of Waterloo. Starting out with, the morning train from Brussels, Belgium, we arrived in about an hour on that famous spot. A son of one who was in the battle, and who had heard from hie father a thousand times the whole scene recited, accompanied us over the field. There stood the old Hougomont Chateau, the walls dented, and scratched, and broken, and shattered by grape-shot and cannon-ball. There Is the well in which three hundred dying and dead were pitched. There is the chapel with the head of the infant Christ shot off. There are the gates at which, for many hours, English and French armies wrestled. Yonder were the one hundred and sixty guns of the English, and the two hundred and'fifty guns of the French. Yonder the Hanoverian Hussars fled for the woods. Yonder was the ravine of Ohaiu, where the French cavalry, not knowing there was a hollow in the ground, rolled over and down, troop after troop, tumbling Into one awful mass of suffering, hoof of kick- Ing horses against brow and breast of captains and colonels and private soldiers, the human and the beastly groan kept up until, the day after, all was shoveled under because of the malodor arising in that hot month of June. "There," said our guide, "the Highland regiments lay down on their faces waiting for the moment to spring upon the foe. In that orchard twenty-five hundred men were cut to pieces. Here stood Wellington with white lips, and up that knoll rode Marshal Ney on lils eixtli horse, five having been shot under him. Here the ranks of the French broke, and Marshal Ney, with hia boot slashed of a sword, and his hat off, and his face covered .with powder and blood, tried to rally his troops as ho cried: 'Come and see how a marshal of France dies on the battle-field.' From yonder direction Grouchy Was expected for the French re-enforcement, but he came not. Around those woods Blucher was looked for to re- enforce the English, and just in time he came up. Yonder is the field where Napoleon stood, his arm through the reins of a horse's bridle, dazed and insane, trying to' go buck." Scene from a battle that went on from twenty-five minutes to twelve o'clock, on the eighteenth of June, until four o'clock, when the English seemed defeated! and their commander cried out: "Boys| can you think of giving way ? Remember old England!" and the tide turned, and at eight o'clock in the evening the man of destiny, who was called by his troops Old Two Hundred Thousand, turned away with broken heart, and the fate of centuries was decided. No wonder a great mound has been reared there, hundreds of feet high— a mound at the expense of millions, of. dollars and many years in rising, and oil tho top is the great Belgian lion of bronze, and a grand old " lion It, is. But our great Waterloo was in Palestine. There came a day when all hell rode np, led by Apollyon, and the Captain of our salvation xjonfronted them alone. The Rider on the white horse of the Apocalypse going- nut against the black horse cavalry of death, and the battalions of the do- monlnc, and the myrmidons of darkness. From twelve o'clock at noon to three o'clock Jn the afternoon the greatest battle of the universe went on. Eternal destinies were being decided. All the arrows of hell pierced our Chieftain, and the battle-axes struck him, until brow and cheek and shoulder and hand and foot were incarnadined with oozing life; but he fought pn until he gave a final stroke and th* ciomjnander-ln-chief of hell an$ all his forces fell back in everlasting' ruin, and jLhe victory }s ours,.

Although the proceedings were perfunctory, the scene was a brilliant otte. The most striking feature of the scene on the floor was the number of new faces. As the hands of the clock pointed to 12 Major McDowell, the clerk of the house, rapped the house to order. The Rev. Mr. Couden, the blind chaplin of the house, then delivered the invocation, appealing to the throne for God's blessing on the work of the new congress and the new administration. The clerk of the house then read the president's proclamation convening congress, after which the roll was called. The vote on speaker resulted: Reed (rep.), 199; Bailey, (dem.), 114; Bell (pop.), 21, and Newlands (silverite) 1. Speaker Reed was enthusiastically received on his appearance in the house after his re-election, and made a graceful and dryly humorous speech in assuming the gavel. According to time- honored custom, the oldest member in continuous service, Mr. Helmer (rep., Pa.), administered "the oath to the speaker. When Mr. Henderson (rep., Iowa) offered the usual resolution for the adoption temporarily of the rules of the last house an ineffectual attempt was made under the leadership of Mr. Hepburn, an Iowa republican, to limit the operation of the rules of the last congress which were adopted temporarily to thirty days. The democrats, populists and fourteen republicans supported him, but they were defeated 183 to 152. The president's message was applauded vigorously. It was read in both houses of congress at the same time and was as follows: "To the Congress of the United States: Regretting tho necessity which has required me to call you together, I feel that your assembling' in extraordinary session is indispensable because of the condition in which we find the revent|es of the government. It is conceded that Us current expenditures are greater than its receipts, and that such a condition has existed for now more than three, years. With unlimited means at our command, we are present- Ing the remarkable spectacle of Increasing- our public debt by borrowing money to meet the ordinary outlays Incident upon even an economical and prudent administration of the government. An examination of the subject discloses this fact in every detail and leads Inevitably to the conclusion that the condition of the revenue which allows It Is unjustifiable and should be corrected. "We find by the reports of the' secretary of the treasury that the revenues for the fiscal year ended June 30, 1892, from all sources, were $425,868,200.22, and the expenditures for all purposes were $415,953,806.56, leaving an excess of receipts over expenditures of $9,014,453.66. During the fiscal year $40,570,467.98 was paid upon Oe public debt, which has been reduced since March 1, 1889, $259,076,890, and the annual interest charge decreased $11,684,576.60. The receipts of the government from all sources during the fiscal year ended June 30, 1893, amounted to $461,716,561.94, and its expenditures to $459,374,887.65, showing an excess of receipts over expenditures of 12,341,674.29. "Since that time the receipts of no fiscal year, and with but few exceptions of no month of any fiscal year, have exceeded the expenditures. The receipts of the government from all sources during the fiscal year ended June 30, 1894, were $372,892,498.29, and its expenditures $442,605,758,87,'leaving a deficit, the first since the, resumption of specie payments, of $69,803,260.58. Notwithstanding there was a decrease of $16,769,128.78 in the ordinary expenses of the government as compared with the previous fiscal year, its income was still not sufficient to provide for its daily necessities, and the gold reserve in the treasury for the redemption of greenbacks was -drawn upon to meet them. But this did not sufllce, and the government then resorted to loans to replenish the reserve. "In February, 1894, $50,000,000 in bonds were issued, and in November following a second issue of $50,000,000 was deemed necessary. The sum of $117,171,795 was realized by the sale of these bonds, but the reserve was steadily decreased until on Feb. 8, 1895, a third sale of $62 - 315.40Q jn bonds for $65,116,244 was announced to congress. "The receipts of the government for the fiscal year ended June 30, 1896 we re J39Q,87.3,aoa.30, and tho expenditure* «8?,}78,426.48, showing a deficit of $£ 805,223.18, A' further Joan '-9f '$10Q,00,i) 000 was negotiated by the • government' In February, 1896, the sale netting $m 166,240, and swelling the. aggregate of bonds issued within three years to $'63 *• ?16,4QO For the fiscal year ended JUn'e SO, 1890, the revenues of the government from all sources amounted to $409,1.75,408,78, while its expenditures were $434,678,654.48, or an expes."^ ex! pondituves over receipts pf> $25 203 24570 Jn other words, the total receipts for the three, flscal years ended June 30 1896 wer?

"It may be urged that even if the revenues of the government had been sufficient to meet all its ordinary ex- peiises during the last three years the gold reserve would still have been insufficient to meet the demands upon it, and that bonds would necessarily have been issued for Its repletion. Be this as it may, it is clearly manifest, without denying or affirming the correctness of such a conclusion, that the debt Would have been decreased in at least the amount of the deficiency, and business confidence immeasurably strengthened throughout the country. "Congress should promptly correct the existing condition. Ample revenues must be supplied, hot only for the ordinary expenses of the government, but for the prompt payment of liberal pensions and the liquidation of the principal and interest of thl public debt. In rising revenue duties should be So levied upon foreign products as to preserve the home market so far as possible to our own producers; to revive and increase manufactures; to relieve and encourage agriculture; to increase our domestic and foreign commerce; to aid and develop mining and building, and to tender to labor in every field of useful occupation the liberal wages and adequate rewards to which skill and industry are Justly entitled. The necessity of the passage of a tariff law which shall provide ample revenue need not be further urged. The imperative demand of the hour is the prompt enactment of such a measure, and to this object I earnestly recommend that congress shall-make every endeavof. "Before other business is transacted let us first provide sufficient revenue to faithfully administer the government, without the contracting of further debt or the continued disturbance of' our finances. William McKinley. "Executive Mansion, March 15, 1837." Mr. Dlngley was applauded when he introduced the new tariff bill. The speaker appointed the republican members of the old committe on the new ways and means committee and added Mr. Bailey of Texas, Mr. Robertson of Louisiana and Mr. Swanson of Virginia to the democratic membership. In view of the action of the democratic caucus Mr. McMillin, who was at the head of the minority of- the committee, was superseded by Mr. Bailey, although Mr. McMillin was left on the committee. The republican members of the committee are Dingley of Maine, Payne of New York, Dalzell of Pennsylvania, Hopkins of Illinois, Grosvenor of Ohio, Russell of Connecticut, Dolliver of Iowa, Steele of Indiana, Johnson of North Dakota, Evans of Kentucky and Tawney of Minnesota. The ways and means committee secured leave to sit during the sessions of the house after which, at 4 o'clock, the house on Mr. Dingley's motion adjourned until Thursday next. • -. The senate began its work in extra session with eighty-seven senators present and with galleries packed to their full limit. The business of the day was confined to the reading of the president's message, the seating of the new senator from Kansas, Mr. Harris, and the reference of the credentials of Mr. Corbett as senator from Oregon to the committee on privileges ' and elections.

TO * DINGLEY ISXl'f,&INS THE Expects It to Yield 8112,000,000 More Revenue—Reciprocity. Washington, March 17.—Chairman Dingley.of the ways and means committee, in response to a request that he furnish a synopsis of the new tariff bill, makes the following statement: "The bill has two purposes—namely, to raise additional revenue and to encourage the industries of the United States. On the basis of the importations for the last flsca} year the bill would increase the revenues about $112,000,000, divided among the several schedules roughly as' follows: A, chemicals, $3,500,000; B, crockery and glassware, $4,000,000; C, metals, $4,000000; D, wood, $1,750,000; E, sugar $21,750,000; F, tobacco, $7,000,000; G, agricultural products, $6,300000- H liquors, $1,800,000; I, cottons, $1/700 000; J, jute, linen and hemp, $7,800000- K, wool, $17,500,000 and manufactures' of wool, $27,000,000; L, silks, f 1,500,000- M, pulp and paper, $58,000; N, sundries] "This estimate is on the supposition that the imports of each class of goods would be the same the next fiscal year as in the fiscal year ended last June Tho committee assumes that the excessive importation of wool would be largely reduced by the proposed bill although the fact'that our domestic production of wool has diminished 8,000,000.pounds since 1893 will sitate the importation of much wool now than j n the latter year As Burning that the-importatipns of' wool J» .W»''«J, at least oneHhM X those ot 1890 ojhaccount of antlcina-' tpry imports to avoid duties, we | J? e the increased revenue fro W this source at $11,000,000, Anticipating-iSS the imports of woplens wilj fan off nearly 50 per cent from the enormous imports of 1896, we estimate the °n- creased revenue from this source un a ei , the proposed rates at about $14,000 000 From sugar we estimate $?0,000,OQO art ; < dHUmal revenue.

Undoubtedly an? beyond May 1 In placing the bilfoYl the statute book would result in a I loss of revenue. '"This increase of revenue Is by transferring wool, lumber, cMi^ opium, argolsV paintings'and statti4^ r | straw ornaments, straw mattings, b&f.' laps and various other articles fromti^ free list of the present .law to the dtUU"f able list; by increasing the duty on: woolens to compensate the manufacturer for the duty placed on wool; by raising the duty of sugar about thtfefr- fourths of a cent a pound in order to encourage the production of sugar in this country, wihich, it is believed, can be done, and thus give our farmers a new crop, which we now import mainly from abroad; by increasing the duty on agricultural products affected by Canadian competition, and on the cotton goods, some advanced manufactures ot iron and eteel, manufactures of jute, flax and hemp, in order to encourage these and other Industries here, and especially by increasing taxes.on suck luxuries as liquors, tobacco, silks and laces. "As a rule the rates of duties proposed are between the rates of the tarH of 1890 and the tariff of 1894, such reduction of rates from the former la* and preservation of the protective principle being made feasible ,by changed conditions. "The iron and steel schedule is , changed very little from the schedule of the tariff of 1894, the damage being entirely in the more advanced articles. The same is true of the cotton schedule. - . ' "In the agricultural, wool and glass and earthenware schedules alone are the duties of the act of 1890 fully restored as a rule, and in a few cases increased, witih the view of amply protecting and encouraging our farming interests by 'every possible point While the duty on clothing wool is larger in proportion to the foreign value than on manufactured articles, yet It is thought desirable for the public interest and for our agriculture that we should produce this prime necessity for ourselves. The duty upon carpet wools, as well as upon many other articles, is imposed mainly for revenue. The irritation caused by the use of a few wools, heretofore classed as carpet wools, for clothing purposes has beea remedied by transferring such wools to the clothing-wool classes, but the duty on clothing wool has been restored by the rate of the act of 1890. "In framing this new tariff the aim has been to make the'duties specific, or at least partly specific, so far as possible, to protect the revenue and also to protect our own 'industries. This has been done in response to the .wishes of the better class of importers, as well as of the administrators of the law and of,our own producers. The very general substitution of specific duties, even where they are only the equivalent of existing ad valorems, will of itself increase the revenue and strengthen the protection afforded to our industries. "The reciprocity provisions of tho act of 1890 have not only been fully restored, but this policy has been extended by adding to sugar, tea, coffee and hides as articles on which to make reciprocal agreements, euch articles, as champagne, brandy, wines, artificial and natural mineral waters, argols and silk laces. In adding these articles the reciprocity provision is strengthened greatly by providing for a reduction oj duties to countries giving us similar concessions." Scott jHCkson Must Hang, ' !
