Labor parly. Sir. De Leon came lo Wash
ington on a fljlng tripniid u number of his
friends here-, learning ho was to conic,
Temple Saturday night. He left the city
for New York immediately after the
ilr. De Leon is a Span'sh-American, in
appearance a laboring man, speaks with a
foreign accent, bjt Iseiairelynthoineonthe
platform, and tells easily and plainly
his principles and their basis.
He said his party uses the word Socialist
In the strict sUcmiric sense. Their puriiose

and transportation in the hands of the
people. He told how man, i merged from the
savage stale, first formed a coinmunit
where every mnn helped toproduee whatall
need. There was a central directive force,
lint this was genuinely a working force,
helping toproduee thegooilstolieused by all.
GOVERNMENT A SACKED TRUST.
It was not a usrful appilcalion of energy
merely on tlie lips or foresworn politicians,
hut in fait. The government wan not a
mu red trust in high sounding words only,
From this communal condition man
passed to the present Irdlvldual sjslein up
on whlih has sprung up tbe State. The
chief purpose or the State is lo prc-Nent the
masses rrom getting possession of the best
means of producing value anil so ki-ep them
in slavery to the classes who own them.
A Unit etl Slates Senator said here re
cently that 98 per cent of the government
revenues are spent for the protection of
property. For this the armies and navies
are maintained. The protection of life no
longer requires muib effort in civilized
The socialist wants a central power to
direct the efforts of all, but he does not
want the c-ollectlve energy directed to
keeping the control of the means of pro
ductlon in the hands of a few. He leates
noliody for the central authority to op
press. He makes this authority a worker
wilti all tho rest in the production of
values for tho use of all.
To the anarchist, who claims to havo
also the purpose to free the laboring mil

Take jour fiddle aud you can have good
music without a director. Bui It jou
want an orchestra it Is no longer possible
to get along without some central author

for himscir makes each thing at a cost of
a dollar where by division of labor it may
be produced for a cent.
DIVISION OF LABOR.
Civilization demands division of labor,
and this demands organization and a cen
tral authority. Without a director musi
cians Mould have a Salvation Army pow
wow, not an orchestra; without central
directive power labor would have a pande
monium. The methods of producing the goods we
need have on every hand become collect
ive, and It Is necessary that the people
should own the machinery of production
or see a few seize and bold all the excess of
The wav to bring about the reform isbv
tbe ballot" It is by this means that all
advance has been accomplished since
Charles I was beheaded. Men tee the wars
and toy these have brought progress, but
in fact the ballot preceded the French revo
lution, tbe American revolution, the late
civil war. By it the reformers got tho
guns in their hands and turned them upon
the rebels, who refused lo submit to the
verdict of the majority.
All tbe old parties ha e some right Ideas,
but f o far as the liberation and uplifting of
tbe masses are concerned their steps are
not in advance, but simply movements up
and down In the tame place. Republicans
want protection for the people, but to long
as machines are lobe owned by the few I hey
are building their walls with the people
The Democrats want free trade, which is
right, but they leave theclasses in controls-o
that while the workingman can buy now
with HO cents whathe formerly paid $1 ror,
he has oulv 50 cents to buy with. His
master, the capitalist, puts the other EO
cents into bis own pocket.
Tbe Fopulist wunts money plentiful,
but It it becomes so it is only to go Into
tho bands of the capitalist. The working
man's wages continue to bo the margin
of starvation. He only gets or tho in
crease enough to keep Iiim alive, nothing
to lay by. At the panic time the Increase
in money hurts the small owner, who is
tbe lalxirer's best friend.
The day of socialism is coming. The na
tions of Europe are now in the van be
cause they rcail more carefully and thor
oughly than do the Americans. When
American bonds were offered the capital
ists, foaght for a chance to bay. Tl.ey do
not fight for bonds of European nations.
They see that the backs of European
workingmen are becoming dangerous
places to sit. They see that when Queen
Victoria wants to collect her revenues
from Pullman the American soldier is
at her command, so with revenues for
Mrs. Hammersley, Consuelo Vandcrbllt
Marlborotigh and the Frlccc of Haltzfeldt.
But the American -workingman votes
every year, and when once he awakes he
will quickly take his place in the lead of
the socialist movement.

OPPORTUKiTBES SF LIFE
President Rankin Preaches Re
garding Their Improvement.
ONLY A SMALL ATTENDANCE
Tlionubt to Be Duo to the He-out ment
Cherished by tho Students of How
ard diversity on Account 'of tho
Dhsniissiil of l'rof. Gn-Rory fSrlov
unces AlleKCd liy the l'uplli.
President Rankin, of Howard University,
preached a fpecial tcrmon. on "The Im
provement of opportunities" at 4 o'clock
yesterday afternoon in the college chapel.
It was tbe first of a series of sermons to be
delivered by Dr. Kankln at the beginning
of tlie academical year.
IJr. Itankin read as bis text a part of the
"As we have opportunity " He began his
remarks by saying that man's career de
pends both upon himself and upon circum
stances. Providence places most young
people amid opportunities and these must
lie improved. The tide must be taken at
OPPORTUNITIES TO BE IMPROVED.
The word opportunity implied thatits
duration is limited, am; hence one must
seize It while it is here. The Improvement
of bis surrounding is what makes a man.
The hand of God isgiveu to man just as the
opportunity warrants. Tlie exigencies
are arranged and prepared by God blni
seir. The great rciret of school life, said the
president, Islhe Improvement of oppor
tunities. A student may multiply his own
In such a manner as to open new ones for
himself and cause bis teachers to place
still others In his way.
Failures In life often come from tbe
slighting of a single class, the neglect of
an opportunity. In Heaven men will be
Judged as they have madeusc of the ihaiices
thrown by God in thelrway.
President Rankin was listened to by an
audience of about 150 persons, the ma
jority of whom were students. The audi
ence filled the cosy Utile chupel to hardly
a fourth Its siatlng capacity. There are
over 500 students enrolled this year, and
ordinarily. It is said, when tlie announce
ment has been made that Dr. Rankin
would preach a special sermon the chapel
would be filled.
PROF. GREGORY'S DISMISSAL.
Whether this decrease In attendance
was due to the feeling that has arisen
between the head of the faculty nnd the
students over the dropping of Prof. Greg
ory, the Latin teacher, is not known.
The students treat the president with
every mark of deference and respect,
but it is apparent that there is a silent
feeling lurking in the b'reasts of many.
Prof. Gregory is apparently bclovedbyall.
He and Prof. Kelly Miller, instructor In
mathematics, were the early teachers in the
preparatory and college departments, it Is
alumnae. For this reason above all others
they feel that their preceptors are "of their
kidney." Prof. Miller Is still In the
Before Prof. Gregory was dropped from
the faculty Prof. Brownbough was let goata
meeting of tho board of trustees last May.
He was teacher of elocution and is this year
occupying a chair in a Western college.
Trof. Moore, of the University of Penn
sylvania, is teaching some of tbe classes
taught last year by the two teachers now
dropped from tlielist, it issaid. Thestudents
but that fact does not diminish their love
for Prof. Gregory and the desire to see him
Some of the students say that the reason
Messrs. Gregory and Brownbough were
dropped is because they dared oppose at
times the orders of President Rankin,
who, it Is said, is regarded as oftentimes
tyrannical. It Is related that last spring
the Eureka Debating Society desired to
temporarily change its name to the Doug
las Debating Society, in memory of the
late distinguished statesman. When the
announcement of a meeting of the society
was given to tbe president to be read at
chapel, it Is said, he told the students that
only under tbe old name could tbe society
bold Its entertainment.
The students say that President Rankin
also vigorously opposes a gymnasium, and
that the only athletic exercise the stu
dents get Is baseball and football In the
limited autumn season.
THWARTED BY THE PRESIDENT.
It ia claimed by some of the students that
a petition was circulated among themselves
during the summer months with a view to
having' Prof, Gregory reinstated. This pe
tition was sent to each member of each
class affected or to bo affected, at his
home and bis or her signature was ob
tained. It was then their object to address
the petition to the board of trustees at the
opening of the school year.
It is asserted, though, that there was no
meeting then but that Prcfldcnt Rankin
haB called for a special meeting ot tbe board
in November. The boys say that some of
tlie trustees wanted a meeting, bat that

"From humiliation to glory," was the
theme of Rev. Dr. Stakely's sermon at
the First Baptist Church yesterday morn
ing. The discourse was divided into three
parts, and for each the pastor selected a
text from the book of Ephesians, as
follows: The past experience ot a Chris
tian. "Even when we are dead In sins;"
the present experience of a Christian. "He
hath quickened us together with Christ,
and bath raised nsup together a ndmaketli
us sit together with Christ Jesus;" ths
future experience ot a Christian, "That
in the ages to come He might show the
exceeding riches of His grace in Bis kind
ness toward us."
Among other things. Dr. Stakely said:
"Christians are these who have passed
out or death Into lire and out of darkness
into light. The state, of the soul outside
ot Christ is tne state oiiueatn, ana tne
axlcctlon and purpose ore away iroru
God. There came a time of quickening,
when our death was brought in contact
with divine life through His whole love
and proceeding upon the grounds of His
own mercy. God quickened us and took
us by the hand and lined us up. Lifting
ns up He caused us to sit together in
heavenlv grace In Christ.
"By this we are to understand that
there Is an intimate association between
Christ and His people. His life Is their
lire. His kingdom is their kingdom. His
service is their service, and His glory Is
their glory. ......
"The heavenly places do not refer to
the future, but to the real present expe
rience of a Christian. God has not done
tMs for nothing. He had a purpose in
quickening us and associating us so closely
with His son. It is that throughout all
the ages to come He might display In
us anil through us His everlasting love
and glory. We may have some part of
heaven on earth, ror the heavenly places
begin on earth. Tho fuller glory will be
hereafter. God saves us because we are
worth saving. He sees in us capacities
and powers Jhat He can use in time and
In eternity. Me saves us with a view to
Ills own glory."
Dr. Stakely asked tho divine blessing
upon Dr. Talmage, who has accepted a
call to this city, though he did not mention
