Royal Arch Chapter, 7:10.
From the published correspon
dence on the subject of Chinese im
migration wo lenrn that some GOO
laborers are to be allowed to land
here within a period of three months
by steamers of the P. M. S. S. and
O. & 0. Cos. lines, facts that were
made public six days previously
from other sources, like the Protest.
We do not learu how many wo
men arc to accompany the males ;
we do not loarn why any other good
line of steamers, which, though un
known here, may be well-known in
China, should not be allowed to
carry them ; we do not learn why
the members of the Board of Immi
gration were not consulted in the
matter ; we do not learn why Chi
nese, with their small number of
females, should be preferred to Por
tuguese, with their families, who arc
the most desirable class of laborers
for the count.-y generally ; we do not
learn why the planters, who are ex
pected to absorb the labor, were not,
as a matter of courtesy, informed of
this proposed immigration two
months ago; we do not learn if
seventy-five per cent of this immi
gration is to be paid in Government
bonds ; and Ave do not learn any
thing further or anything definite
about that Five Dollar business. In
short we only learn what we knew
before ; and the people will not be
content until tliey know everything.
It is only a question of time and the
information, now withheld, will be

Notes From Mr. Cruzan's Sunday Evening
Text: 10th chapter and 7th verse of Ec
clesiattos: Say not thou, What is the cause
that the former days were better
than these ! for thou dost not en
quire wisely concerning this."
Man possesses a natural instinct
which prompts him to seek heights,
and from there view his surroundings
and the world below him. He who
possesses this instinct never ceases,
until he has set foot on the highest
point, but having reached it the
grandeurs of the scenery above,
around and below him will make
him more fully realize his nothing
ness. So there are .moral heights within ;
1800 years ago Christ called upon
all humanity to come up higher:
have we obeyed? Men with long,
doleful faces ask what is the cause
tliat former days were better than
these and point to a newspaper ol
the blackest kind werein is chronicled
a list of murders, defalcations and
defamations, and consider this crim
inal record, a photograph of society.
It is true that some men hold it their
duty to publish these incidents, pro
ducing sheets which are not allowed
in respectable homes, and can be
printed and read only under cover oi
secrecy. Let us compare the litera
ture of to-day with tlmf; of olden
times. Homer and Virgil abound
with passages which would mantel
the cheek of every pure woman oi
to-day with a blush, yet such litera
ture was read by the highest society
in the ancient days of Rome. I do
not believe that the world is growing
worse, if so, Christianity would bo a
failure. I believe we are steadily
improving and that our literature
Let us uow look at the state of
Society. Paul writes of the Ro
mans :Being filled with all unright
cousness, fornication, wickedness,
covetousness, maliciousness, full ol
.nvy, murder, debate, deceit,
malignity 5 whisperers, backbiters,
haters' ol' God ; despiteful proud,
boasters, disobedient to parents.
"Which is t'e darker picture, Paul's
epistle or the? chronicle of to-day ?
The Roman SenVvte was full of cor
ruption but what OS the rule then
is an exception to-day. JVow honesty
and nprightuess is clemaiuteV' oi an
official, not that wo have dn'yen
stealing from our public offices bai
every community demands purity,
integrity and straight forwardness
and when an official is detected in
cheating, deceit lying or stealing he
is branded hunted down and driven
from among us and behind the doors
of the penitentiary and prison he wil'
luul his only safely. The days of
might, with strong arm and iron
hand, is right, are no more. Go
vernment in made for man and not
manor Government. This is not
the age of divine right, he who
would exercise it will perish unless
he change. Take Christianity in
Christ's church, it supplies more
fully the wants of humanity than
over before, we arc surely moving
Christward, Heavenward. Because
you who stand low and can not sec
things do not doubt their existence
but come up higher and you will see
the same things in the same light
as they are seen by men and women
who are on an eminence. You
would like to be a Christian but the
humility, self-denial and sacrifice arc
too great, yet God is with the man
who undertakes this road upward.
The royal road to true spiritual
greatness lies .through humility
and must bo traveled in humility.
Wc must bow at the foot of the cross
and he who overcomes sin and
temptation will be raised to the
