Mr. Holmes, who makes no cret of the
fact that h intends to vote for Col. fiooo
velt, particularly on account ot thu Pro
j;rc3ivo platform ndoplwl by Iho second
f 'hicngo convention, has miiclo a practice
of iimaching a political sermon on thu
Sunday before election day. This practice
lie followed yesterday, and the whole
servlco was arranged lo correspond,
with "America" as ono of the hymn mini
heis. He began his sermon by saying (hat
hi hid boon watahing tli9 campaign
"sey and had Iwnn reading the speeches
or all tho candidate. It was evident, ho
f.wd. that the country was entering upon
i new K)Utical era. Thon ho elaborated
upon tho moral significance of the chang

try What has America stood for in the
eyes of the world and or her own citizens?"
He answered this question with three
things tin country ha btood for. It
hai been, ho said, as no other, country,
ihe land of oconomlo opportunity for
every man; it liaa offered political free
lioni. Tree political Institutions which
oflcr equality to all mankind; and, third,
it has given the promise of bringing into
the world u new and truer civilization,
n Hung Tor which the whole world has
"en uriving and waiting.
'I h most remarkable phase of Amerl-
ii life until now, ho said, has been tho
"Imd. unbounded, sublime faith which
I'lierieain havo had in tho destiny or

nothing could or would interfere with

Things went smoothly enough until
