AT OPENING OF

its Great Spiritual
DISCOURSE BY REV. SC.1WARM
At the First English Evangelical
Lutheran Church Last
At the First English Evangelical
Lutheran church on Sixteenth street,
last evening, the pastor, ftev._Samuel
Schwann, delivered an interesting ariil
timely discourse, taking for his theme, !
"The Christian's Duty on the Thresh- j
hold of a New Year and Century." Mr.
Schvarm eald In part:
"The night 1b far spent, the day is at I
hand; let us therefore cast off the works
of darkness, and let us put on the
armour of light. Let us walk honestly
as In the day; not In rioting and drunkenness,
not In chambering and wantonness,
not In strife and envying. But put
on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not
provision for the flesh, to fulfill the
lusts thereof, Romans 13:12-14.
The Christian's Duty.
"The Christian should take note ol
the demands of the times in which he
lives. He should'try and understand
his age, and know what Is appropriate
and what is not appropriate under existing
conditions. The Apostle Paul \\?i3
a gospel preacher. He was a bearer of
the light of the gospel of the Lord Jesus
Christ to a heathen world, a world
sunk.In gross moral and spiritual darkness,
a world, groping about after Cod
If happily they might find him. This
was true of the cultured Athenians and
also of the world conquering Romans.
They were morally and spiritually engulfed
in grosB ignorance and superstition.
Ileveling and drunkenness,
chambering and wantonness were prev
alent even In their religious life.
"Paul gives a picture of that heathen
world In the first chapter of his letter
to the church at Rome. He says.
When they knew Cod, they glorifled
lilm not as God. They changed the
?lory of the incorruptible God Into an .
Image made like to corruptible man, !
md to birds and four footed beasts,
ind creeping things. Wherefore God :
jave them up to uncleanness through
the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor
their own between themselves,' ,
"It was into this gross darkness of
icathen idolatry and sensuality that .
Paul carried the light of the Gospel of
Tnoiif r-V, , 11-1 Hi ..,,1,1 .1,
leard and believed, 'The night is far
;pent, the day ir. at hand; let us there- '
!ore cast off the works of darkness,*
itc. The r.lghl of that heathen dark- 1
less was far spent. The day soon '
jurst upon those heathen nations and
dolatry and sensuality were largely
Danished and Christ Jesus was put on
ind became King.
"This should give us Christians conId
ence. We should believe and reoice
in the fact that the night is far
ipcnl, that the day of gospel light is at
land, that the forces of evil will not nlvays
have the ascendency. That the
rend of the human race Is upward.
L'hat the human race is growing better
tnd nobler. There Is still much darkless,
after nineteen centuries of Chrisian
teaching, in some places even in
Jhrlstlan lands, and there are still
nany heathen lands, but the day is
>: caking everywhere'. There is no just
eason for gloom and despondency as to
he triumph of the Gospel of Jesus
"hrist Many bewail the persecutions
? Christians in Armenia and China,
>ut those very persecutions have shown
hat the light ha3 shone into those
nost benighted heathen lands and
nade many ready to die rather than
;lve up the light. It will prove there
is in the past history of the gospel ov- g
irywhere, that 'The blood of the mnryrs
Js the ceed of the church.' ?ru 1 that
nstead of suppressing the gospel, it
vlll be the means of making hundreds ^
i-iicl thousands of Christiana for every Q
>ne whose blood was shed. And then 0
3od will use the zeal and enthusiasm of
hose modem martyrs to stir up the
hurch in the Christian lands. The v
>iood of these martyrs cries to us, that e
Now It is high time to awake.'
Tho Day is at Hand. r
"These things show us that the day a
s at hand even for the most benighted d
anda. Tills should encourage Chris- a
ian8 ia Christian lands. They should ii
hrow aside their lethargy, rub their o
yea, and behold the sun of righteous- b
ioSh shining In the far east. This is no 7
ime for Christians to sleep. The day is t
lere; they should arise and take the rl
forhl for'Christ The gospel of Jesus a
Ihrlst has been steadily marching on. a
'here have been times when the light a
as burned obscurely, but it hns ever o
ic-en trimmed and burned more brightly II
han before. It was so In the rcforma- t!
Ion, In. the revivals under Spenor In n
i'ermany, the Wrsleys In England, nn-1 'J
Edwards, Finney, etc., In America, b
'here are sinners of another trimming ?
o\v, The night of sin's power Is pass- tl
rig. It Is far spent. God will not nl- \\
i-aye tolerate the works of the devil, a
Ie Is calling to his people to put off the li
forks of darkness, revellngs and d
runkcnnoRS, etc., and to live In the P
ght.. The many attempts to purify a
ur cities of these gross evils show that tl
lis people arc responding. They will tl
ct succeed. p
"The century drawing to a close has T
icon a wonderful one because of the f<
clentlfic and material advancement,
'he Gospel of Christ han advanced too,
>ut not so conspicuously an the materil.
But the century coming will be
oted for Its great spiritual advance- jj

ial will be most highly prized. The day tl

!To the Editor of tho Intelligencer. tfc
SIR:?I read your editorial on "An Pi
Impractical Move," with interest. It Is ca
not my Intention to discuss the wisdom aj?
the move made by tlie committee of b:
'One Hundred." That move was made nt
ivith an honest purpose, even if not ni
wisely. I. do not understand the pres- d(
jnt position of the Intelligencer, when
compared with its former. Is the Intel- si
ligencer consistent now, when it advo- Pi
:ates standing by the Republican nom- *vi
nees, without exception, with Its for- la
ner position, when it denounced Sun- o<]
lay base ball and "fake hotels," and ar
)ther evils? Does not the Intelligen- eti
:er know, of course it does, that among 1
;he nominees of the Republican party at
ire five or six of the very men who w!
/oted in the present city council against su
ivory resolution to do away with the i
ilot machine and with the "fake hotel?" gr
Vnd does it not know, of course It does,- F1
hat among those nominees Is the presint
chief of police, under whose term
>f olllce all of the above mentioned
ivlls have nourished unmolested? The
ormer position of the Intelligencer
rave many of the best members of the
Republican party hope and courage in
heir attempt to purify the party and
he city. Why docs not the Intelligen- J
er try now to save its party from such
nen, instead of trying to save It with
ucli men? The Intelligencer has advoated
a gTeater and better Wheeling,
I'hlch Is commendable, but can it not ^
iow, 'for the sake of that greater and sjc
letter Wheeling, advocate the election *ac
