Mr. Biggs' sermons. Qecem
mences by calling your atten
tion to the fact that bo had
objected at first to having his
sermon on temperance printed,
for the reason that it was writ
ten in haste and onworihy or

with him on this point, as I
consider bis objection to the
printing kas well taken.. He
says that be is sorry that it his
brought upon Uiri the necesei
ty of a controversy with' a
neighbor, whioh is unpleasant,
and out of bfs fine,' I will say
neither it it in my line, but it

fiiis sounds very innocent, in

case they were the attacking

how lelore I am done. For,
be it known that during ' the
crusade last winter 1 received
hree several notes at sundry
limep, written by the hand ol
Mr. Johnson requesting me to
meet tlie 'Temperance League
lor lite purpose.ni an interview.
in one' 0 wlncn notes, tiierp
was an intiniMtion that unless I
complied with . said request
there might be an interview
sought by: apublic deinonstra"
tion, to which notes 1' gave
heed, and three several times
a pledge was presented, to me
to sign, wnich in effect would
have bound me to neither selT
nor give away any wine ' to be
used in McArthur, except lor
strictly medicinal ' purposes,
'which pledge I refused to sign.
On the third Occasion alter be
ing pressed with ' much impbr
.(unity by the League, to 'sign
said pledge, being always read.t
to give a reason for the laith

that is in me, I arose to explain.
1 told the members of ibe
League that I did not keep a
saloon, nor a tippling house;
that 1 did not sell wine by the
drink at all; that 1 .had never
sold any one a drink of wine in
my life; that ray wine was pure
grape juice of -my own make;
that I soid it by the barrel, keg
or bottle to suit ilie conveni

Mr. Biees in some instances
Looted the very, words 'that I
used when being interviewed

remrk'in bis 'sermon, bSome
of those wine men plad for tn
is'e lor their business that
the Savior made. and used wine,
and that ' they .have a right to
follow his example; but he add
ed that the Savior never made
nor used fermented wine; that
fermented wine was a production-
of the devil, that it was
blasphemy to say the Savior
made or used fermented wine,
or words to that effect. But
I happened to know that in
time past, that on more than
one Occasion, ReVTMff' Biggs

I . . j..S i 1 J. a 1 , !.i : i

supper to the society to which
he was then preaching, as the
wine bad been obtained from
me for that purpose. Uere is
Mr, Biggs in preaching, vs. Mr
Biggs in practice. But this
was not the first time that the
works of the Savior were at
mbutedto Belzebub. , So it
occurred to my mind that it
must be quite refreshing to
the communicants of that soci
ty to be inlormed that be bad
used a production ot the devi
at the Lord's table, when ad
ministering their splritua
wants. Davihg made the above
statement, I. will leave it Co
the reader to decide who )s the
at lack ing; party. J.: felt '.that
was attacked, and to use Mr
Johiidon's words, '-Ii.have the
nstinct 1 of self preservation
and when I am attacked' must
defend myself." Nothing si ort
of this principle ot self preser
vation would have induced me.
with my small ability, and lim
ited opportunity, to presume
to contend with the great and
learned Revs Biggs and John
1, wno nave naa such rare
opportunities, and by life long
study, have acquired such vast
knowledge of theology and
classic lore; that others thouah
great, beneath their argument

But when Paul says it is good
neither to eat flesh nor- driok
wine, he does ' not put the doc-1
trine ot total abstinence in the
form of a mandate to be ob
. 1
served by all men throughout
all time, but, for certain indi
viduals, undnr peculiar circum
stances, as a matter ot expedi
ency, to be practiced at the
discretion of the individual.
The Savior did not practice to
tal abstinence. Why does not
Mr. J. preach total abstinence
regard to eating flesh also?
for surely flesh and wine both
stand in the same connection
in the text. The one Is pro
hibited as much as the other,
Whydoes he insist upon the text
being, binding as regards the
wine, but of nOn-efT-ctas re
gards the mealf With- what
fiohsistehcy can' he-by the ail
ihority of that text impope to
tal abstinence upon me. in re-
gardto wine; while he indul

against which there te a direct
command.' "And the 'swine,
though he divide the hoof, and
be cloven footed, yet be chew-
eth not his cud; he is unclean
uno you. ( Of his flesh shall
ye not eat, and their carcass
shall you not loach; they-are
unclean unto you." Lev. xi, 7, 8.
How much would Mr. Johnson
or Biggs give if they could
find as .strong a text as., this
against the use of wine in the
Bible?.- How men, will 'strain
at a griat and swallow a camel,
vea, worse; swallow' a swine."
Why does not Mr. Johnson on
the same principle preach also
against ' matrimony as well, for
in the seventh chapter of first
Corinthians, Paul teaches the
doctrine that.it is good not to
marry. But does he mean by
that, thai '.slf meu and, women
too, must live in $ state pf eel
ibacv? I trow, not. ,:It is good
no dolibt In some cases to ab
stain from the use of wine, but
in other parses It ; is belter to
use tt, as Paul advised Timothy
to, do. Wht I contend for is
personal liberty in the matter.

a member of a certain church J
was expelled irom' communion
for making and selling wire,
the effect of . which ' resulted
practically in the exclusion of
his whole family. Thus, in their
seal to forward what J'they
fl AAfTI tn Ka m. nrri aonnii
they caused some to stumble.
to become weak, and to offend
strange to tell, that same soci
ety bad been in the habit (or

member's make erery quarter,
for sacramental purposes. Only
ten days after the expulsion of
aid member, jlhat church pro

same Wine which be fur
uished ; them without t money
nd without price, which wine
they osed in celebrating the
Lord's supper, while the donor
looked wistfully -on but dare
not partake.- Verily they
"muzzled the muuth of the ox
that treadetir out the' corn."
But that is not all; that ex
eluded member, in' the mean
time took an appeal from the
decision referred to, and had a
hetring. on the day following
the event alluded to.' when it
was decided by those' high m
in the case, that the defendant
should not be permitted to ap
peal to the Bible in bis defense
to justify the act of making
and telling wine. That he was
not being tried by the Bible
but by the laws of that church
while at the same time one of
the' articles of religion pf that
church says that' "whatsoever
19 fno1 read , V' ,tre UoV :8Crl
lures nor may be proved there
bX. noto be, required of any
man " Why this, ruling out o
the BiP,e in thelrial ol thla
particular case, when it is , ap
pealed to, in the trial of al
other .classes of eases! Why
this going back on the article
of religion quoted above? si m
ply because the Bible did hot
read as : they would have it to
on the" wine question.1
ThiH
judge in his zeal adopted the
maxim that the end would jus
tify the means. He further de
cided that fermented wine was
an intoxicating liquor, after
having used it 'the day before
for sacrament; that it was a vi'
olalion of the laws of that
church to sell or drink 'such
wine, and that the decision ol
the court below must be sua
tained. It must needs be that
the church bavd wine to repre
sent the blood or the bleeding
Savior.' but woe to! hiin'bv
whom it is produced. It was
tersely remarked about 'that
time by one who comprehended
the situation that said mem
ber's wine was in better repu te
in that cbuth .tha'aA was
himself: as thev took bis wine
in(0 ,he cLorch and iu -ea fiJm'
out; both at the' same meeting,
"It wasVritten the leal of thy
house bain eateu me up." May
we- not - reasonably conclude
that such efforts at reformation,
will prove abortive, .fnd
that snch inconsistent dealing
may cause some to stumble, to
become weak and to offend.1
, Again, I know another party
who a lew months ago was al
most , persuaded .to apply lor
membership In another society
-of professed Christians, but it
turned out that before the par

My theory is, look well to our
motives, follow the example ol
Christ and his word so far as
we can understand It,' and "fret
not thyself on account of . evil
doers,' and let the influence
take care of itself. A good in
fluence is a spontaneous pro
duction, not governed by pub'
io opinion; it is nomanufac
tured article gotten up to order,
in the interest of some pre
tended reformation In the form
of a crusade or persecution for
opinion's sake. ' Such excite
ments are like a sudden freshet
that will swell ' a river Ont bf
banks, which will catch a large
amount t)f driftwood, and carry
lots of scum upon its surface!
while the pare gold, if there be
any, will lie quietly at Che bot"
torn unmoved. When the Sa.
vior taught bis disciples to let
their light shine he did not
mean that they shootd Hg'ht
their -candle at both ends a't
once, but Tather that tney
should not put-it out. He did
not say, mafo your 'light shine
ether,- but it shihe,' He
did not mean tor his followers
to flo anything merely 1or 'ef
fect; he was not a sensational
ist, hence be Jaugbt them when
they gavealma.jiot5to sound a
trompet before them as the by
pocrites did, but to bide ihe
aot from 'men, and trust their
Father In secret for their re
ward. n' ' " '' '
( Also, in regard to prayer "be
not as. the hypocrites for , tkey
love, , to : pray standing in the
synagogue and in the. corners
of the streets .to beu seep, ol
raen." Also, in, regard , to. fast
ifig, f was. to be done secretly)
His. pwn example t?ught the
same principle, x Almost. Inva
riably when be wrought a cure,
he enjoined upon them that'
were healed Toot to tell a man of
it. The idea of reforming socie
ty or individuals permanently
by means of an artificially man,,
ufactured, influence is not in ac
cordance with the gospel plan,
hence those, who attempt to
make their light shine, instead
of being content to let it shine
often commit blunders that re
sult in lasting damage to many,
which the efforts of a. lifetime
may not repair. Mucn - ial
without . experimental knowl
edge is a dangerous element,
instance Saul of Tarsus, who
was a 'man 'of great learning
and power, with wonderful zeal.
