BATTLE OF THE RACE TRACKS.
The fight between the St Aaph and
Alexander Island race tracks promises
to be a very lively and interesting one
A, slated in yesterday's Times the former
has determined to wipe out tlie latter, and
for that purpose its financial aid will be
given to Capt George A. Mushbach, so
that he may be renominated aud re-elected
to tlie Virginia State Senate
Capt Mushbach is the author of si law
passed ostensibly to minimize or abolish
the evils of gambling, but at the same lime
to perpetuate tracks then in existence.
TJuder it, however, all forms of wrong
doing have flourished In Alexandria county.
For St Asaph's track it must be said that
its methods of conducting racing are as
clean as those in operation on tlie majority
of oourees It is regulated by jockey
club rules, and makes similar punishments
for their infraction.
But when It uses its profits to corrupt
politics, to buy legislators, aud to abridge
the rights of a decent community it ought
to be visited by the heavy hand of a
law that is not of its own making
The principal disgrace to Virginia is the
track at Alexander Island. It is an
outlaw track in every Fenso of the word.
It is an abode pt crookedness, a den of
rampant vice, and a standing and running
Xieuace to the welfare of communities
for many miles around.
But the St. Asaph people do not want to
r.holish Alexander Island because ot it$
euperlaUvTs wickedness, but becausR It la
barrier to their financial gain.

Whatever may have been its faults, Tim

result, for which labor organizations and
workiugpeoplegcnerally should be thankful.
Until recently the newspapers of Washing

Their editoiial criticisms, paragraphs and
comment sou strikesaud other labor troubles
were intensely aggravating in face of the
fact that almost invariably working people

inflicted by corporate influence. And were

they have abused workrtig people, accused

labor as a menace to society. Instead of

lessly attacking the abuses that injure

the cause of employers or sueeringly alluded
to labor organizations.
But The Times has shown themsometliing

this change ol sentiment properly belongs
to its thousands of readers. In supporting a
newspaper that dared defend wage-earners

temporaries to udopt the same policy. It
is a victory lor which the public .should be
grateful. Tor when the piess taken up the
cause of labor there will be less contention
between employer and employed.
Organized labor perhaps can afford to
blot out the past records or newspapers,
ir by so doing it can be guaranteed that
such sudden conversion to the cause of
labor is more than skin deep. Out it's hard
to forget the incalculable injury that has
been caused by their misleading publica

APOSTLE l'AUL'S COMPANIONS.
Dr. Stakely Accords Lnko Firt Place
In Importance to Christianity.
The sixth or the series of sermons by
Rev Charles A. Stokely on the "Com
panions of the Apostle Paul" was deliv
ered last evening before a large congrega
tion at First Baptist Church.
The subject of his discourse was "Luke,
"The history of the life and work of
Luke," said Rev. Dr Stokely, "contains
more of interest than that of any other of
Paul's companions, and was of more value
and force in the dissemination of the word
of truth than the others. Although this Is
an historical fact. Luke is mentioned only
three times in the New Testament. It is
not stated in the Bible that he is the author
of the two books attributed to him. From
this source all that can be learned Is that
he was a native of Antioch and a Gentile;
the only Gentile contributing to the New
Testament, and all he wrote had special
reference to the Gentiles.
"By p"rofesion he was a physician, and
they during Ids time were generally not
Christians. His calling at thetlme was
not considered an honorable one. as it
was generally taken and followed by slaves
and persons of the lower class. When we
recall that he dedicated all his writings to
Theophilus, supposed to be a wealthy lord
or baron of Antioch. it creates the belief
that at one time 'Luke' was a slave and his
name contracted from Lucamus to Lucas

Did Not Wake Up tho "Watchman.
Editor Times- In an account published in
Saturday morning's Times, of the fire which
occurred ut tbe MacFarland residence, at
12 o'clock Friday night, i notice tnc toi
lowing "An unavailing effort was made to
nrmten fh -wntc!iniau In the Windsor build
ing on the corner of Seventeenth and F
streets who had the koy to the fire box, by
pounding ou the door; finally one of tha
young men, residing in the neighborhood,
climbed through a window and woke up
the sleeper." '
The facts are: There arc two reliefs of
two men each on night duty at the Windsor
building; one from 4 p. m. to 12, and the
other from 12 (midnight) till 8 a. m. Each
watchman has three stories of tho building
under his care, and. is required to patrol all
the corridors and ring in electric
registers ptacecLat tho ends of each, besides
others that arciplaced in tho engine-room,
carpenter shop.etct, every hour.
My relief is fr,om, midnight to 8 a. m. I
had relieved tho other guard and reporter
by telephone to the lieutenant of the watch
at tho Treasury building, aud started
promptly at 12 o'clock to make my first
round I had traversed the corridors of
the two upper Iloors and was in the far
end of the basement when I heard the
knocking ht the door. Supposing it was
the guard I had just relieved returned for
something he had forgotten, 1 concluded to
finish ringing in uc icgiaic-io uu "'
back to the door, whicn, however, did not
delay me more than one minute.
As the fire nlarm was turned in at 12:08 ,1
submit that It would require a lightning
sprinter and sleeper to patrol four corridors,
ring in eight bells, get back to tho door
and fall so fast asleep in those eight min
utes that it" would require one to break
through tho window in order to wake him
It 1b fortunate for me, as -well as the
reputation of watchmen in general, that
the fire occurred at the hour it did. If it
had been two or three hours later, and this
modern Jack Falstaff bad told the same
6tory to your reporter, perhaps Capt. Con
nelly or somo of the Treasury officials
might havo thought thatl had been recreant
to duty and had alien to sleep. As it is,
they know the kind of man he is and what
credence to give his story.
RELIGION IS NOT A DREAM
Dr. Kent Continues His Analysis of
the Lord's Prayer.
Tho Ultima! o Reality of tho TTnlvorso
Is Full of lloneflcont Purpose und
Rev. Dr. Alexander Kent, ot the People's
Church, yesterday morulng delivered the
second or his series ot discourses on the
Lord's Prayer. His text was Jn the
prayer's second clause, ''Hallowed be
"Worship is reverence, confidence is
love," began Dr. Kent. "It implies
that there is something In this universe
that Is worthy of reverence, of confidence
and of love. If there is not, all that
Is called worship Is superstition, and re
ligion is only such stuff as dreams are
"If the so-called atheist is a man of
education and culture, even he i-ecs some
thing in this universe to admire and revere,
and Miniething, in a sense, to love. This
something the religionist calls God, or
some equivalent term. To him It is not
blind and senseless and purposeless. It
Is all-seeing, all conscious, all-powerful.
It is the moving , energizing and vitalizing
reality back of all manifestations.
"To Jesus this ultimute reality of the
universe seemed so full of beneficent pur
pose, so wise in its economy, so firm and
iflt so tender in its government, that He
called it 'Our Father In the Heavens.'
There is no thought of sex in this word any
more than there is in the word man; where
th ancient writer says that God made imn
in His own image and adds 'Male and rc
male cieated He them.'
"Such was HiB thought of 'Our Father
in the Heavens. ' not ofsome father who was,
but who art; who is now and forever will
b, the same jeaterday, to-day, and for
ever. " Wll might Hesay, with such a conception
of God, 'Hallowed be Thy name.' This
petition is a blending ol adoration and
prayer, worship in the highest meaning of
tho word. It is the spontaneous outbreath
ing of a soul filled with a sense of the
"Hallowing of God's name as rather in

of the needy old surviving ConMIerates.who
are without a rich government at theirback
to pension them, or commodious and well-
equipped Soldiers' Homes, where they can j
pas the rest of their declining yeara in
peace and comfort, and free from want.
