Rev. W. S. Amout, who stopped
over from tho steamer Ohiua last
week, is an Amorioau missionary
who has labored iu Ohiua for
twenty years. He is on his way
homo npon furlough. Mr. Amont
addressed the congregation of
Central Union ohuroh yestorday
morning,and that of tho Christian
church in the evening. In the
latter ohnroh Rev. J. M. Monroe
introduced him as a college mate
of his at Oberlin 29 years ago.
Mi. Amont on coming forward
spoke in praise of missionaries of
tho Christian chnrch he had met
in China, and then proceeded in
an attractive conversational style
to rolato incidents of his mission
ary work in that country, together
with impressions of the political
and Bocial conditions of the vast
empire. There was a great op
portunity for presenting the gos
pel to the thousands of Chinese in
tho Hawaiian Islands. Most of
tlieso were from tho southern
parts of the empire. His own
work had been in the north, whero
the race he considered was supe
rior. Tho northern tribes were
pure Mongolians, the strain that
produced Confucius. An impres
sion was abroad that tho Chinese
people were so bound up iu an
cient superstitions that thoir con
version to Christianity was im
possible That this was errone
ous was proved by the fact that
thorp were today 75,000 native
Christians in full church mem
bership in China. And there
were no more earnest, devoted,
faithful and lovable church mem
bers in tho world. While it gave
him pain to part from a church
iu Ohio after a pastorate of three
years, tho chords of his heart
were more wrung in bidding
good by to his Chinese congrega
tion iu Peking.
Mr. Amont, referring to the
passago of scripturo read, said
China was the only great modern
nation that wob montioned in the
Bible. It wna there called Siuim.
The Chineso were a learned and a
skilled race before the dawn of
modorn civilization. They were
alone among aboriginal races in
the role of creators. From them
Japan had got all tho literature it
possessed, and (Jlnna had given
letters also to Corea, Anara and
other countries. When China
awakened to a sonso of its latent
powers, even Europe would have
to look out for its safety. And it
would not be the first tirao, for
the Mongolian hordes struck ter
ror through northeastern Europe,
knooking even at the doors of
Vieuna, and at this day many
, names in Austria boro witness to
the invasion of Zonghis Khan.
Boforo tho awakening came it
would bo well for Europe iE China
wore transformed into a Christian
Any who concluded from tho
easy success of the Japanese in
tho late war that the Chinese wero
a weak and imbecile race made a
great mistake. Thore was not an
abler race on tho face of tho earth
than tho Chinese If they hud
been properly led, equipped aud
fed, they would havo given a
diiforout account of tliemt-olves in
fighting tho Japaueso. Tho Chi
neso wero furnished with muskets
of obsoleto pattern and cartridges
that wouldn't fit tho muskets.
Their allowance of food was on
a starvation scale. It was observ
ed that their wounded scut buck
had boon all shot in tho buck.
Whon asked how this was so, they
said they had never even soon the
Japanese. The Japanese would
open fire upon them at long
rango, and thoir generals would
order them to fire off thoir guns
beforo they saw tho onomy. They
fired in the air and then ran for
thoir lives. Many of their gonorals !
wero killed, but it was by their
own men, who thus had their
revenge for ill treatment. It
might bo thought that the lessons
of tho war would havo causod a
roform in military matters. This i
was not the case. All Unit tho I
great Li Hung Chang had to re- .
commend was a change of the god ,
of war, who happens to bo a living
man. Accordingly a big butcher,
of line physical appearance, was
chosen to replace tho war doity who '
had proved so impotent in tho I
conflict with Japan. After Li
Hung Chang had returned from
his tour of the world, in which ho
had been received with the highest
honors by tho great rulers of
Christendom, ho publicly worship
ed a little snako that did duty as
the sacred dragon in a temple.
This is the man who named Bis
marck, Gladstone and himself as
tho three groatest men of the age.
It hud been truly said of Li
Hung Chang that, while no hon
ors were too great for him abroad,
none was so despised and hated
in his own country. Ho was
without a particlo of patriotism.
With a fortune estimated at 45,-
000,000 taels, amassod in his olli- '
ciai career, no was a contomptioio
miser. When solicited for a con
tribution toward a polytechnic
institute at Peking, which would
be of inestimable bonufit to the
people and nation, he promised to
help the schotno after the foreign
ers had raised 45,000. All that j
ho would do, howovor, whon that
oppunuuuy urnveu wuuiu ue u
.. - .- 1111
recommoud tho board of works to
give somo assistance. Not a dol
lar would como out of his pocket.
As an instanco of the extent to
which superstition rules Chinese
affairs, Mr. Amont told of the de
parture of tho now Chinese Min
ister to Washington. When it
snows at Peking tho roads are
made next to impassable, yet the
Minister took his departure in the
midst of the worst snowstorm ex
perienced for a long time. This
he did bocauso the tune was fixed
for him by the goomancer, an ora
cle that is consulted in all import
ant mattors of stato.
Several instunces wore givou of
notable conversions iu tho speak
er's mission. Ouo was that of a
largo opium doulor, who had
himself been a user of opium for
moro than thirty years. Ho not
only sold out his opium establish
ments at a sacrifice, but, at tho
cost of a fearful struggle with the
habit iu hospital, ho abandoned
the indulgence. Auothor case
was that of a terraugaut wifo,
whoso curiosity about the now ro
ligiou was aroused by its effect on
her husbaud, shown strikingly by
his ceasing to thrash her when
she acted in her usual ugly wuu
ner. Thore was a large congregation
that listened with intense interest
to Mr. Ament's graphic discourse.

of the armies of the union, calm
aud coufidout as president of a
reunited and strengthened nation,
which his gonitis had boen instru
mental in achieving, he has our
homago aud that of tho world; but
brilliant as was his public charac
ter, we lovo him all tho more for
his homo lifo and homely virtues,
his individuality, his beariug aud
speech; his simple ways had a
flavor of rare and unique distinc
tion, aud his Americanism was so
truo and uncompromising that
his namo will stand for all timo
as tho embodiment of liberty,
loyalty and national unity.
Victorious iu tho work which
under divino providonco ho was
called upon to do, clothed with
almost limitless power, ho was yot
ouo of the peoplo patiout, patrio
tic and just. Success did not dis
turb the ovon balanco nf his mind,
whilo famo was poworloss to
swerve him from tho path of duty.
Great as ho was iu war, he loved
Eouco aud told tho world that
ouorablo arbitration of differ
ences was the best hopo of civili
zation. With Washington and Lincoln,
Grant has an oxnlted place iu tho
history and affections of tho poople.
Today his memory is hold in
oqual esteem by those whom ho
led to victory aud by those who
accepted his generous terms of
peaco. Tho veteran leaders of
tho bluo and tho gray hero meet
not only to honor tho memory '
and namo of tho departed Grant,
but to testify to a living reality,
tho fraternal national spirit which
has triumphed over the differences
of the past and tiausceuded the
limitations of sectional lines. Its
completion, which wo pray God
sp-ed, will bo tho nation's greatest
glory. It is right thon that Gen
eral Grant should havo a memor
ial coinmousurato with his great
ness and that his Inst resting
pluco should bo tho city of his
choice to which he was so attached
iu life and of whoso ties ho was
not forgotful even iu death. Fit
ting, too, is it that tho great
soldior should sleep beside his
native river, on whoso banks ho
first learned the art of war aud of
which he bocatno tho master and
leador without a rival. But
let us not forget the glorious
distinction with which tho metro
polis among tho fair sisterhood of
American cities bus honored his
life and memory. With all that
riches aud sculpture can do to
render tho edifico worthy of tho
man, upon a sito unsurpassed for

been reured by Now York as a
