NEW YORK. Nov. 4— Rev. Dr. Robert
B. MacArthur, pastor of Cavalry Bap
tist Church, preached to-nlg-ht on "Es
sentials to National Perpetuity and Spir
itual Prosperity." Alluding to the elec
tion. I>r. MacArthur said:
"Recently a candidate for the high of
fice of President and hi? chief lieutenant
have virtually incited the lawless ele
ment to rioting on election day. This ad
vice is the inspiration of the candidate,
and It is the utterance of his lieutenant.
The great body of voters Js law abiding,
hut there is an element in every commun
ity ready to take advantage of encour
agement and to violate wholesome • law
Already there has been an outbreak of
violence alons the line traveled by this
verbose candidate. Speakers following
him have been Insulted and mobbed. This
candidate arcusos the passions of discon
tent and envy. Mob law at the polls is
the logical outcome of preaching the
tzne pel of hatred.
"A Senator who Is the titular head of
the candidate's party Indorses the ap-,
peal to riot uttered by the bellicose lieu
tenant in New York. Who Is this in
