On his father's sido he is of English

tho sturdy qualities of John Bull.
On tho mot hov',i sido, ho is Irish, and
in some dogrco has fallon heir to tho
famous Irish Bull flashes of wit and

AB a preacher, Brothor Neville is
always instructivo, nover entering
the pulpit without beaten oil. Ho is
thoroughly Calvanistio, and no ono
con listen to him without discovering
the impress of the lamented Girar
deau. Ho is an intensely practical
preacher, but his exhortations, Uko
those in tho Paulino epistles, aro
founded upon doctrine. With a
clear voico and pleasant manner,
thoroughly proparcd and deoply in
earnest, it is literally true of Novillo
"While in the pulpit he fears not the
face of man."
Whilo Brother Neville is deeply
concerned in all that adds to tho
material and moral good of his State,
yet her spiritual interest is the bur
den of his heart. For years he has
devoted his time, labor and money
to tho causo of domestic missions.
With a largo pastorate and a cul
tured audience to greet him eacl
Sabbath, he will yet ride miles in thc
afternoon to preach in destitute
placets, and at any cost to himself 'nc
is over ready to heed tho cry, "Come
over and help ns." For years his
'guiding hand has been upon the home
missionary work of Bethel Presby
tery, and very muc'.i of thc success
of that work is due to his wisdom,
zeal and energy. At present he is
chairman of tho evangelistic commit
tee, and hjs fine administrative abil
ity, courteous bearing, force of will
and knowledge of tho field has
already placed thc work upon a sure
basis. Ile is pre-eminently fitted
for home missionary work.
While like the apostlo Paul, his
heart's desire and prayer for Israel is
th nt they might be saved, like the
apostle, tho claims of tho heathen
world also presses heavy upon his
heart. Under his leadership tho

Thero was littlo fighting on South

Less Idqor Drinking.
Tho bullotin for tho Federal De
partment of Labor for July gives
figures to show that there hua been
a large decrease in tho consumption
of intoxicating liquors by tho peoplo
of this country. In 1880 tho con
sumption of distilled spirits in tho
United States was 2? gallons for
ovory man, woman and child ; in 1890
it was less than one gallon.
Such a ?ecreaso in thc uso of strong
drink probably never occurred before
among any people
Thoro has also been a decroaso in
tho uso of wino in this country. Thc
per capita of consumption of wino in
1880 was .29 of a gallon, and in 189G
it was .20 of a gallon.
But while there has boon some
decrease in thc uso of wino and a very
groat decrease in tho uso of whiskey,
brandy, gin and othor spirits, thc
consumption of hoer has increased
In 1890 no less than 1,170,870,448
gallons of beer wore used in this
country. The beer used for medi
cines, in cooking and for other pur
poses except drinking, is compara
tively very small. Tho great hull
of thc beer consumed in 1890 wai
drunk. Tho per capita consump
tion of beor in 1880 was only 1.8f
gallons. By 1890 it had increased
to 15.10 gallons.
In spite of this fact there ie good
reason to believo that there has heoi
a great growth of temperance amour,

years. Thoir larger usc of 'mild
drinks is more than compensated foi

THE PRESIDENT S REPLY
To Spain's Peace Proposa!--No Money
lt Demands the Absolute Surrender of Porto Rico* and the Island*
Adjacent to that Island and Cuba, to ?he Untied States, th?
Absolute Independence o? Cuba and Coaling Stations
in the Philippines and Ladrono Islands.
WASHINGTON, D. C., July 29.-Tho Cabinot disouBBod tho Presi
dent's answer to Spain's ponco proposal to-day and roaohod tho follow
ing conclusion :
Tho absolute surrender of Porto Rico to tho United ?Staion and
tho cossion of sovoral small islands adjacent to Cuba and Porto Rico
to tho Unitod States.
Recognition of tho indopondenco of Cuba.
Cession of ono of tho Ladrona Islands to tho Unitod States aa
coaling stat ion and the cession to tho United Statos of at least a coal
ing station in thc Philippines.
Tho question undecided ?B, what disposition shall bo mndo of tho
Philippine Islands as a whole. It oan bo stated that th oro is practically
no difforouco of opinion in the Cabinot on tho quoation of tho roton
tion of the Philippines Islands ns a wholo, all tho membors hoing op
posed to our acquisition of theso islands. There has been no dociflion,
howovor, ns yet on tho oxtont to which tho govornment will go in its v
decision respecting the futuro of theso islands, but it is probablo that
tho answor to tho Prosidont will oxpresatho willingness of thisgovorn
mont to loavc thc matter of tho futuro government of tho Philippines
ontiroly in tho hands of a joint commission to bo appointed by this
govornment and tho govornmont of Spain, Tho probability is that
tho United States will insist upon a guarantee of certain reforms in
govornmont in tho Philippine Islands.
Our answor will moko no mention of tho money indemnity.
Noithor will thoro ho any armistice at all. Tho answor will bo in tho
nature of an ultimatum, and if Spain does not ncoopt it BIIO will faro
worso in thc future. The noto from Spain, it is said, was a vory
adroit and equivocal dooumont, from reading which ono would think
tho only question involved was Spain.
Appnrontly Spain might not ronlly havo intended getting a direct
answer from us, but only to opon diplomat ic correspondence. This
govornmont will not have any such correspondono, but will mako a
straightforward statement of its present poaco terms for Spain's nc
ceptanco or rejection, naming conditions that uudor tho circumstances
aro reasonable and oven generous.

W. I., July 28.-Tho Port of Ponce surrendered to Commander C. II.
Davis, of tho auxiliary gunboat Di Aa yesterday. Thoro was no resist
ance, and tho Amoricans wore wolcorned with enthusiasm.
Major Gen. Milos arrived hero this morning at dnybrcnk with Gen.
Ernst's brigade and immediately started for tho town of Ponce, throe
milos inland, which capitulated this nftornoon.
Tho American troops aro pushing towards tho mount sins and will
join Gen. Henry with hip brigade at Guanica, which hns hoon captured
by our troops.
A light beforo tho lattor placo on Tuesday last was won by tho
American volunteers. Tho Spaniards ambushed eight companies of
thc Sixth Massachusetts and Sixth Illinois regiments, but tho enemy
was rcpusled and driven back a mile to a ridge, whoro tho Spanish
cavalry charged and were routed by our infantry.
Gen. Garrotson led tho fight with tho mon from Illinois and Mas
sachusetts and tho enemy retreated to Yanco, leaving four dead on tho
hold and several wounded. None of our mon woro killed and only
three were slightly wounded.
The Porto Ricans are glad the American troops have landod and
say they aro all Americans and will join our army.
The roads arc c(ood for military purposes. Our troop^aro healthy
and Gen. Miles Bays tho campaign will be short and vigorous.
Gen. Miles lias issued thc following proclamation :
"In tho prosecution of tho war against tho Kingdom of ?Spain by
the people of the United Statos, in tho cause of .liborty, justice and
humanity, its military forces havo como to occupy tho Island of Porto
Rico. They come homing tho banners of freedom, inspired by a noblo
purpose to Beek tho enemies of our government, of yours, and to destroy
or capture all in armed resistance Thoy bring you tho fostering arms
of a freo people, whoso greatest power is justico and humanity to all
living within their fold. Hence thoy release you from your former
political relations, and, it is hoped, insure your cheerful acceptnnco of
tho government of tho United States.
"Tho chief object of tho America), military forces will ho to ovor
throw the armed authority of Spain and givo tho people of your beau
tiful island tho largest measure of liberty coneistont with this military
occupation. Thoy havo not como to mako war on the pcoplo of tho
country, who for centuries havo been oppressed, but, on tho contrary,
they bring protection, not only to yourselves, but to your property,
promote your prospetity and bestow tho immunities and blessings of
our enlightenment and liberal constitution and govornmont.
"It is not their purpose to intorfero with tho oxisting laws and
customs, which are wholesome and beneficial to tho people, BO long as
they conform to tho rules of tho military administration, order and
juslico. This is not a war of devastation and desolation, but ono to
givo all within tho control of tho military and naval forces tho ad
vantages and blessings of onlightcd civilisation."
Adrice to Candidates,
An astuto politician in giving ad
vico to candidates says : "Don't stay
too long in ono place-keep moving.
Always be in a hurry. Five minutes
