THE BAPTISM OF FIRE.
Sermon by Rev. T. DeWitt Tal
mage, D. D.
He Discourses About the Destruction of
the Brooklyn Tabernacle-The Church
to be Rebuilt-What Fire Does
Toward Kenining Men.
Dr. Talmage chose as the subject of
his recent sermon, "The Baptism of
Fire," taking as his text: Acts xx., 24.
"None of these- things move me." He
But, Paul. have you not enough afflic
tion to move you? Are you not an exile
from your native land? With the most
genial and loving nature. have you not,
.in order to be free for missionary jour
neys, given yourself to celibacy? Have
you not turned away from the inagnifi
cent worldly successes that would have
crowned your illustrious genius? Have
-you not endured the sharp and stinging
houralgias. like a thorn in the flesh?2
Have you not been mobbed on the land,
and shipwrecked on the sea; the sanhe
drim against you. the Roman govern
ment against you. all the world and all
hell against you?
"What of that?" says Paul. "None
of these things move me:" It was not
because he was a hard nature. Gentlest
woman was never more easily moved in
to tears. lie could not even bear to see
anybody cry. for in the midst of his s. r
mon when he saw some one weeping her
sobs aloud, "WhAt mean ye to weep and
bre' ifiine heart?'for I am ready not to
be bound'only but also to die at'Jerusa
lem for the name of the Lord Jesus."
What then did Paul mean wh n he said.
"None of these things move me." lie
meant, "I will not be diverted from the
work to which I have been called by any
and all the adversities and calamities."
. I think this morning I express not
only my own feelings but that of every
man, woman and little child belonging
to Broolyn Tabernacle, or that was
converted there, or comforted there, or
blessed there. when I look toward the
blackened ruins of the dear and conse
crated spot and with an aroused faith in
y loving God. cry out:
"None of. these things move me."
When I say that, I do not mean that
we have no feeling about it. Instead of
standing here to-day in this brilliant
auditorium, it would be more consonant
with my feelings to sit down among the
ruins and weep at the words of David:
"If I forget thee, 0 Jerusalem. let my
right hand forget her cunning." Why,
let me say to the strangers here to-day
in explanation of the deep emotion of
my flock, we had there in that building
sixteen years of religious revival. I be
lieve that a hundred thousand souls
were born there. They came from all
parts of the earth and we shall never
see them again until the books are
opened. Why. sirs! our children were
there baptized. and at those altars our
young men and maidens took the mar
riage vow, and out of those gates we car
ried our dead. When from the roof of
my house last Sunday morning at three
o'clock I saw our church in flames, I
said: "That is the last of the building
from which we buried our De Witt on
that cold December day when it seemed
all Brooklyn wept with my household."
And it was just as hard for you to give
up your loved ones as for us to give up
ours.. Why. like the beautiful .vines
that still cover some of the fallen walls,
our affections are clambering all over
the ruins, and I could kiss the ashes
that mark the placewhere it-once stood.
Why, now that I think of it. I can not
think of it as an inanimate pile. but as
a soul, a mighty soul, an indestructible
soul. I an sure that majestic organ had
a soul, for we have often heard it speak
and sing, and shout and wail, and when
the soul of that organ entered Heaven,
.I think Handel, and Haydn. and Mozarti
-and Mendelssohn, and Beethoven were
to the gates to welcome it. So I do not
use the words of my text in a heartless
way, but in the sense that we must not
and will not be diverted from cur work
by the appalling disasters which have
befallen us. We will not turn aside one
inch from our determination to do all we
can for the present and everlasting hap
piness of all the people whom we may
bable to meet. "None of these things
move me. None of these things move
When I looked out through the dismal
rain from the roof of my house and saw
the church crumbling bricic by brick and
timber by timber, I said to myself: Does
this mean that my work in Brooklyn is
ended? Does this terminate my asso
ciation with this city, where I have
been more than twentyv years, glad in
all its prosperities, and sad in all its
misfortunes? And a still small voice
camo to me, a voice that is no longer
still or small but most emphatic and
commanding, through pressure of hand,
and newspaper column, and telegram
and letter and contributions, saying.
I have made and I now make appeal
to all Christendom to help us. We want
all Christendom to help, and I will ac
knowledge the recept of every contribu
tion, great or small, with my own hand.
We want to build larger and better. We
want it a national church, in which peo
plec of- all creeds and all nations -may
$nd a home. The contributions already
sent in make a small hear ted church for
ever impossible. Would not I be a
sorry spectacle for angels and men if, in
a church built by Israelites and Catho
lies, as well as all the styles of people
commonly called evangelical, I should.
instead of the banner of the Lord God
Almighty, raise a fluttering rag of small
sectarianism? If we had $300,000,000 we
would put them all in one great monu
ment to the mere-y of God. People ask
on all sides about what we shall build.
I answer, it all depends on the contribu
tions sent in from here and from the
tistory. I say to all Episcopalians, we
shall have in our services as heretofore
at our communion table portions of the
Liturgy. I say to the Catholics, we
shall have a cross over the pulpit and
probably on the tower: I say to the
biethodists, we mean to sing there like
the voices of mighty thunderings. I
say to all denominations, we mean to
preach a religion as wide as Heaven and
as good as God. We have said we had :
total loss. 'lut there was one r-xcep
tion. Trho only things we saved were
the silver communion chalices, for they
happened to be in another building,
and I took that fact as typical that' we
are to be in communion wi ch all Christ
endom. "I believe in "the communion

and all insurance c-ompanies should
search among those ruins on Schernmer

SThe two words that I utter now as
most expressive of my feelings in thi:
our first service after the baptism oj
fire, are Hallelujah! MAnen! "None o:

We are also reinforced by the increased
consolation that comes from confratern
ity of sorrow. The people who. during
the last sixteen years sat on the other
side of the aisle, whose faces were fa
miliar to you. but to whom you had
never spoken-you greeted them this
week with smiles and tears as you said:
"Well, the old plac. is gone." You did
not want to seem to cry. and so you
swept the sleeve near the corner of the
eye, and pretended it was the sharp wind
made your eyes weak. Ah: there was
nothing the matter with your eyes: it
was your soul bubbling over. I tell you
that it is impossible to sit for years
around the same church fireside and not
have sympathies in common. Souehow
you feel that you would like those peo
ple on the other side of the aisle, about
whom you know but little, prospered,
and pardoned, and blessed, and saved.
You feel as :f you are in the same boat.
and you want to giide up the same liar

and when this church sorrow started it

"I expected from those altars to be

supported and confident in this time by
the cross of Christ.
That is used to the fire. On the dark
day when Jesus died. tie l ightning

hell dashed up against it front benLath.
That tearful, painful, tender. blessed'
cross still stands. On it we Lang all our

of such a sacrifice. who can feel lie has

not be told on earth. or in hell, or in
Heaven, that three llehrew children had
the Son of God beside them in the fire,
and that a whole church was forsaken
by the Lord when they went through a
furnace about two hundred feet wide.

We are also reinforced by the catho
licity that I have already referred to.
We are in the Academy te-day, not be
cause we have no other place to go. Last
Sabbath morning at nine o'clock wye had
but one church: now; M a have about
thirty, all at o'w- disposal. Their pas
'tois and their trust."-2 say: "You may
take our main audiee roms, you may
take our lecture roomns, you may take
our church parlors, you may baptize in
our baptisteri's, and sit on our anxious
seats." 0! if there be any larger hearted
ministers or larger hearted churches
anywvlhere than in Brooklyn., tell me
where they arn, that I may go and see
them before 1 die. Trhe millenuium has
come. People keep wenderin.;'vben it
is coming. It has come. The hon and
the lamb lie down to;:ether, and the
tiger eats straw like an ox. I should
like to have seen two of the old-time
bigots. with their swo-ds, fighting
through that great fire on Schermerhorn
sreet last Sabbath. I anm su r, the swords
would have mel']ted, and they whowielded
them wvoul have learne'd war no more.
I can never say a word against any
other denomninamtion of Christians. 1
thank God 1 never have been tempted to
do it. I can net be a sectarian. I have
been told I ouget to b~e. andI I have tried
to be, tsut I have not enough material in

is gone. The angels of God shake ot

Ahi: that is a good land. Why, they
tell me that in that land they never
have a heartache. They tell me that a
man might walk five hundred years in
that land and never see a tear or hear a
sigh. They tell me that our friends who
have left us and gone there, their feet
are radiant as the sun. and that they
take hold of the hand of Jesus fa
miliarly. and that they open that hand
and see in the palm of it a healed wound
that must have been very cruel before
it was healed. And they tell that there
is no winter there. and that they never
get hungry or cold, and that the sewing

twelve for the day.

cnsuimed, and the flames will fling their
long arms into the skies: but all the
terrors of a burning world will do no
mnore harm to that heavenly temple than
the fires of the setting sun which kindle
up the window glass of the house on
yonder hill top. 0. blessed land! But I
do not want to go there until I see the
Brooklyn Tabernacle rebuilt. You say,
'Will it be?' You might as well ask me
if the sun will rise to-morrow morning,
or if the next spring will put garlands
on its head. You and I may not do it
you and I may not live to see it; but the
Church of Gol does not stand on two legs
nor on a thousand legs.
How did the Israelits get through the

through such a sea as that? How did
they get through it? Did they go backr
No. Did they go to the right? No. Did
they go to the left? No. They went,
forward in the strength of the Lord Al
mighty: and that is the way we me:an to
get through the Red Sea. By going
forward. But, says some one: "If we
shoild build a larger church, would you
be able with your voice to fill it?" Why.

MEXICAN SOCIETY REPORTING.
The Tropical Descriptive Style of the Land

The society reporters in the City of

tropical style that makes the discreet I

mere cold catalogues in comparison.
Here is the translation as made by a cor

the particulars of the attendance at a

her debut in the spring of life, full of

the first blush of a May morning, blue I
with white flowers; the Seioritas Quin

and forms like waving palms, blue and
rose colored silk.

smiles of a child, more candid and pure
than the break of duly, white; the Seno

them in speaking of the ball at the Na

colored satin; both Senoritas Saunter,

of the splendid sun of the middle ages

CHICAGO, October 30.-At the openinL
of the court in the Cronin trial thi:
morning, State's Attorney Longenecket
asked for an atachment against Ed
ward Speliman of Peoria, Ill., a distric
officer of the Clan-na-Gael. Mr. Longe
necker said Speliman had been served
with a subpo'fna, and had agreed t<
come when called for. Two telegram;
had been sent to him, but he had no
responded. An attachment was ordere<
The first witness sworn was Denni:
O'Connor. He testified that he was
member of Camp 20. At a meeting o0
the camp on February S last, witnes
said he neard Thomas O'Connor statt
that he had heard read in Dr. Cronin'
camp the minority r, port of the com
mittee to try the executive body of ti
order. The name:-s of the members o
the executive body were not mentionec
and witness said he never knew whi
composed the triangle. Then it wa:
voted to appoint a committee to go ti
to Cronin's camp and investigate th<
matter of the minority report whicl
Cronin had read. The cross-exanina.
tion elicited nothing new.
Stephen Colleran, who was on th(
stand at the time of the adjourunent q)
court last evening, was recalled, and
after answering a few unimportan1
questions from the Stile was turnet
over to the defense for cross examina
tion. It developed nothing of interest
Patrick Nolan, financial secretary of
Camp 20, produced his record book and
from it testified as to the numbers born(
by Coughlin, Cooney, O'Sullivan, Begg
and Burke, all of whom except Cooney
are now on trial. Witness further testi
fled that he was present at the meetint
of the camp on the night, of May 3, th(
day preceding Dr. Cronin's death; thal
Beggs presided; that there was a call foi
a report of the secret cmmittece ap
pointed on February 8, and that Begg:
replied that the committee was to report
to him alone. Witness said that on tht
Sunday following Cronin's disappear
ance he met Burke and Cooney, about 5
o'clock in the afternoon, in a saloon.
This was before witness knew of Cro
Din's disappearance. They went to an
other -saloon and played cards for o
couple of hours.
The next witness was Captain Thomas
F. O'Connor, the man who created ex
citement in Camp 20 on the night of
February 8 by saying he had heard read
in Cronin's camp th< report of the com
mittee - that had tried the triangle.
O'Connor said that Andrew Foy was the
first man to speak that night. Foy arosc
in his place in the camp and addressed
the senior guardian, and stated that he
arose under a terrible strain; that aftei
the disclosures of LeCaron in London,
the organization, as an organization,
was no more; that there were fout
British spies in the organization, rad
that it should be reorganized; and every
one that was in the organization who
had the slightest taint or suspicion
attached to him should be expelled.
When he got through I arose to my feet,
and I stated that I was not at all sur
prised at hearing the gentleman
talk as he had done; that I knew
by positive information that the organ
iz'ation was run by a parcl of rogrues
known as our executive body; that they
ad squandered our funds,; even to thet
extent ot $100,000; and not alone that.
but they sent our best me~n across to
England to have them put behind the
bars; and now, I state positively, thfat
LeCaron was an agent of our executive
board and received pay from them. At
that nioment I waLs interruplted by two
or three brothers with a dlemandl to tell
where 1 got my information. I did not
like the first brother who spoke to me,.
and I said: ''You demand nothing.
Then there were two or three other
brothers that demantded to know where
I gt my inforimation, and there wa:
a general uproar at the time. &e
1 turnied around to the senior
uardian and said to him: "If the senior
laardian demands of me where I got
y initcrmation I will gll him." Het
did not say anything. ihen there was
some more uproar. I turned the second
time and the third time, and said if the
senior guardian would demand of ne
where 1 got my information, I would
tell him. Then I stated I had heard
terrible report of the entire t
mit tee in Buffalo, and had alk
seen a writt of 300 pages o0
elosel . .en og-hand about the trial
and tha~t 1 was pisitive of my statement.
At that instant Daniel Coughlin, a mem
her of the camp. arose to his feet and
said: "Mr. Guardian, 1 move that
secret comumi'rec of three b~e ap
poined to find out the sonrce o1
Captain O'Connor's information." Thesi
were his word(s. Then there was somn
one else on his feet, and the senio:
guardian wrapped the camp to order, as
i was such a tumultuous time, such tur.
nioil. somebody spoke, and the senior
guardian said: "I will hear no more 0r

Then the State's Attorney sought to
introduce correspondence between Bcggs

a man calling himself J. B. Simonds a
bill of furniture which was taken to a
flat at 117 Clark street, -and was subse

point developed was the fact that Si
nonds said the furniture was "for tem
A fter Hlattield had identified the fur
uiture sold to Simonds as that subse
quently seen by him in the Carlson cot
tage, the trunk in which Cronins body
was carried away was brought into
court. Hatfield, after examining it,
testified that it was identical with the
one sold to Sinionds.
On cross-examination he said that lie
could not swear that it was the identical
trunk, because the firm keep such on
hand aiwavs, and perhaps other dealers
did also. It came out that Mr. Forrest,
of counsel for the defense, had bought
just such a trunk from witness. It
could not be sworn to positively that
t he furniture in the Carlson cottage was
the sanie furniture sold to Simonds. It
was prei.,ely like it, however.
A recess was then taken.
CHICAGo, Nov. 1.-Martin McHall, a
carpett layer, was the first witness in
the Cronin trial this morning. le tes
tified that the carpet bought by "J. B.
Simonds" in February last wAs laid by
him (witness) on the floor of a room at
117 Clark street. Witness was then
shown a piece of carpet, presunably
from the Carlson cottage, and lie iden
tified it as identical in pattern with that
which he laid in the Clark street room.
:after the shipping clerk, the delivery
man and other employees of Revels had
testified, the first important witness of
the dlay, Annie Carlson, was placed on
the stand. The young woman began
her testimony very timidly. After
several questions she became so nervous
that her replies were almost inaudible.
It frequently became necessary
for the court stenographer to repeat
aloud the barely uttered sentences
which fell from her lips. The audience
in the court room. assuming that revela
tions of a most startling character were
being made, craned their necks in the
direction of the witness stand, and the
excitement became intense as Mr. Mills
put the next question. Witness then
went on to state how, on the 20th of
March, while she was at Carlson's, a
man came to rent the cottage which
stood near the house. le said his sister
was to keep house for him, and that he
had some furniture he wanted to move
in at once. lie gave his name as Frank

"WVili you point him out to the jury?"
"There he is"-[witness pointing to
-Do you mean Martin Burke--that
man?" continued Mr.- Mills. pointing to
Burke again. "Yes," replied witness;
and that ended her examination.
Mr. Forrest then cross-examiined the
witness at great length, going inito all
the details of her niovements and her
visits to Carlson's house. She testified
hat .she had never seeni Burke from the
day she entered the cottage until a few
days ago, when she came into tr~e court
room for the purpose of identifying him,
vet she recognized him immediately.
Iis eyes, hair and mouth and his peeu
liar wa.y of looking, she said, made a
grecat impressioni:oiu her, and she knew
him at oince. Mi-. Forrest mnade the wit
ness look away fi-om Bui-ke and at the
ur-y and then describe his features and
the color of his har. - This she dlid.
Mr. Forrest'. for the dlefense, raised
the qutestion as to whether this testi
mony was applicable to any other one
of the defendants except Bur-ke.
The eourit deculed that that was a
qulestioni which would have to be decided
by subsequeiit devclopments of the
Jonats Carlson, owner of the cottage,
was the next witness. He corroborated
thle testimony of his .daughter-in-law
-aboutt the stranger coniing to rent the
cottgi.e. Witness then said: He asked
iLn it was my house, as lie wanted to
e--nt a house. I told him y-es. I1e said,
Le mein sic the house,"- and we walked
oer- to thle house, and I took the k-eys

NEw Y nK, October 30.-The steamer
Kanawha. from Newport News; arrived
here this morning with the crew of the
steamer Cleopatra, twenty-six in nutn
ber, and the crew of thirteen of the
steamboat Crystal Wave, which were
both sunk in collision at 5:30 o'clock
yesterday morning off the capes of Dela
ware. All hands were saved.
The Cleopatra was an American screw
steamer of 523 tons register and was
built in 1S05. She was running in the
Old Dominion Line and was bound from
West Point. Va., for New York. The
Crystal Wave was a side-wheel river
steamer and was bound hence for a
Southern port. The boats came together
about 5:30 o'clock yesterday morning.
The Crystal Wave was cut down to the
water's edge and the Cleopatra coi
menced to break up, and as she was
sinking rapidly her officers and crew,
twetity-six in number, decided to aban
don her and were taken off by .the
steamer Kanawha, from Newport News
for New York. The Kanawha also took
off the officers anl crew of the Crystal
Wave. She attempted to tow the Cleo
patra, but was unable to do so, as the
latter vessel filled rapidly and became a
The Cleopatra had no passengers.
The crew of the Crystal Wave consisted
of thirteen all told. The Crystal Wave
was bound for Washington.
The Crystal Wave was purchased a
week ago for $45,000 from the Bridge
port Steamboat Company. by E. S. Ran

Dan Martin, one of the best known
steamboat men in this port, was placed
in command, and she left last Saturday
afternoon for Washington. The wea
ther was clear and the sea smooth until
the vessel reached the Horse Shoes.
There a slight storm came up and the
boat anchored until Monday night. At
7:30 that night the boat resumed her
voyage, proceeding without further in
terruption until a few minutes after 5
Tuesday morning. At this time the
darkness was intense. Captain Martin
was in the pilot house, and
he says the vessel's side
lights were brightly burning. Suddenly,
and without any previous warning, a
great black object loomed up. Before
he could signal the engine to slow down
the black object, that Captain Martin
now saw was the bow of a steamer,
eashed into the Crystal Wave. Her
captain just had time to make out the
name. "Cleopatra," on approaching the
vessel's bow when he was thrown to the
floor of the pilot house by the shock of
the collision. The Cleopatra struck the
Crystal Wave at right angles, between
the paddle box and the stern on the
starboard side. . The Crystal Wave was
cut clear through to the keel. The
Cleopatra's planks parted, and in an in
stant both vessels began to till.
It was not then known that any ves

A Fortune for a Man Who Keeps-Too
Drunk to Understand It.
Some few months ago, says the Nor
wich (Conn.) Bulletin, Mr. Fred. B.
Manning saw in a Chicago paper-an ad
vertisement inquiring for a lost printer,
for whom a fortune was waiting. He.,
recognized the name as that of a
drunken tramp printer who had turned
up in Norwich. Mr. Manning wrote
the family and received a letter from
the uncle of the young man, who asked'
him, if he ever came to Norwich again
to send him to his family. To pay the
fare of the printer to his destination.the :
uncle remitted $15. Two weeks ago the
printer, who was a lost son of a worthyI.
family, turned up in Norwich too intoxai
cated to understand the message a
Manning had for him. Before he coI
be sobered he had left the town. Inquiry;
was at once made for him, and he
traced to Putnam and sent back to Nor..

made to get him sober enough to know
there was good fortune awaiting-him;
but he raved and raged and again left
the city and went to Willimantic. In
quiry was again made for him, which
resulted in his being sent back again to;
Norwich. He was just as drunk as eve
