Representative Lodge Is monoirm-
inttc on the subject of a Federal elec
tion law. He wants he says, if nec-
ee&sary, a file of federal soldiers at
every polling place in his district."
He has made the Federal election
idea the sole object of his thoughts
throughout this session, and will at
tempt to crowd out any other impor
tant business in its favor. He was
the first member to arrive in Wash
ington, and promptly attached his
fortune to that of Mr. Reed, while he
was a candidate for the speakership
of the House. He came here
before any other of the Mas
sachusetts delegation, and when
they arrived, they learned, as they
did two years before, that Mr. Lodge
had his committee places picked out
in advance of any of them.
There is a great pressure at present
in republican circles to have the
Lodge bill pass. Of course the acjt'ual
reason is that millions have been giv
en away through subsidies and tariff,
public buildings and in many other
extravagant ways, and it is admitted
by those in authority that the U. S.
Treasury is nearly bankrupted. To
avoid a deflict the republican major
ity proposes that the government shall
commit a colossal breach of trust. To
be brief: On the 14th day of next
August the silver coinage act be
comes operative. Upou that day the
amount held by the U. S. Treasurer
for the redemption of the circulating
notes, in the hands of public of dis
continued national banks, according
to the terms of the act, are turned

Representative Yoder, of Ohio,
who is a member of the Democratic
Congressional committee, says that
the democrats will gain several Rep
resentatives at the coming election,
as the result of the gerrymander of
the state. Mr. McKinley has been
thrown into a district that will have
a majority of 2,000 against him. His
friends will make a desperate effort
to secure his election ; but Mr. Yoder
says that nothing short of a million
dollars will accomplish that result.
The other gains which the commit
tee is confident of making, are three
in Missouri, one in Kentucky, two
in Maryland, oneeach in Louisiana
and Pennsylvania, and others possi
bly in Iowa and Massachusetts.

He Will Not Support a Man Who Be
smirches His Priestly Robe With
Prohibitionist" in Slielby ville Gazette.
The gubernatorial campaign has
already opened, the first gun has
been fired. The Issue publishes
what it calls Dr. Kelley's great
speech. I neither controvert nor
criticise its estimate of it. The Doc
tor himself clearly enough defines
the relation of the church to the Gov
ernment, when in that speech he
raises this question and answers it:
'You ask if he (God) intends to have
the church run the Government? I
answer no! a thousand times no. As
an organization the church has no
rights, as related to the Government,
but those of teaching right moral
principles and petitioning for right
aws comformable thereto. The
church indorses no party, nominates
no candidates, but she must stand by
principles in her teaching, and her
members must vote their principles
at the ballot-box or else ' deny that
the Lord has bought us w ith his
blood." Further on he asks another
question; the answer to which is not
so satisfactory. "But ought a preach
er to take part in politics? In ordina
ry cases, no! for he has more import
ant work to do. But in our revolu
tionary struggle the question of hu
man liberty became an issue so great
proportions that the Presbyterian and
Baptist preachers were found fore
most in propagating the principles
and foremost in the fight. When,
in the recent war, it became evident
that the country demanded every
man, the preachers were found with
the foremost." I must be permitted
to say that, to my mind, the refer
euces furnish neither parol lei nor
precedent. In times of revolution,
when the foundations are being over
turned, when the land and when the
pastoral relations and work are virt
ually destroyed, public judgment will
much more readly excuse preachers
for entering an army, when there is
nothing else left for them to do, than
for accepting a nomination lor a po
litical office when the current of
things is not unusually disturbed;
besides, they gave up. their old pas
toral relations and eharges when they
entered into the new relations.
I want to lay down my convictions
here and now as an honest man, a
preacher of the gospel, and a prohi
bitionist. By a sort of universal con
census a man called of God to the
ministry and set apart to that sacred
office by fasting and prayer and im
position of hands, with the voluntary
assumption of such vows as the ordi
nation service of the Methodist
Church imposes, so long as he has
freedom of choice, is bound to that
work for which he has been conse
crated, ljct that man maintain, in
spirit and form, the sacred dignity of
his office and even wicked men will
reverence and fear him, as Herod
intipas did John the Baptist. But
let him by any act of his admit that
any other work is equally important
to him, or let him be drawn into the
field of political struggle, and not
only will ne suffer in his ministerial
character and influence, but the
whole church will suffer, and the
loss sustained In one direction will
be greater than the gain secured in
I have not talked with a Metho
dist preacher yet but felt some
doubts or misgivings as to tho pro
priety of nominating the pastor of a
church for a political office. There
is a universal feeling that it is not
just right. These preachers will tell
us from the pulpit that when a thing
is doubtful we must avoid it to be
safe, Yet many of them by their
votes will indorse a thing of doubt
ful propriety, and thereby establish a
precedent which is likely to work
untold detriment to the pastoral re
lation and the church, and which In
the end will hurt the cause they seek
to advance. This prohibition move
ment is one of vast importance, and
while L believe it will finally suc
ceed, and that through a prohibition
party, there are yet many years of
struggle before it; and if, in the in
fancy of the party, extraordinary
cases are found which require pastors
to turn away from "more important
work," who can assure us that the
growth of the party will not develop
many still more extraordinary cases,
which will call for many more pas
tors, and where will the mischief
It is unwisely and unnecessarily
involving ministerial character and
the pastoral relation that makes me
pause, and that will forever prevent
me from indorsing any such action,
and establishing any such precedent,
unless my convictions be revolution

ized. Our pastor may just as well be
nominated by the Prohibition party
as another, and if one may accept a
nomination why may he not volun
tarily offer himself as a candidate?
Surely the party will become strong
enough after awhile to elect some of
its candidates. Think of a dozen
pastors of churches elected to the
Legislature and leaving their pastor
al charges two or three months dur
ing the year, drawing their salaries
as preachers and legislators, and at
the same time feedinz the flock of
God over which the Holy Ghost has
made them overseers.
You laugh at the absurdity of the
supposition. Yet this is nothing
more than the logical outcome of
this first movement. The relations
between, pastor and people is the
most sacred in the world. You want
your pastor to be as far as possible
removed from all worldly entangle
ments, as closely as possible allied to
virtue and truth, to goodness and to
God. You want him to stand forth
singly as God's messenger and the
representative of holiness and truth,
above all parties, above all policies.
You want him to be so Christ-like
that in his compassionate sympathy
be will touch every man within
reach, and draw every man he
touches that by the purity of his
life as well as his words he will re
buke every sin. This cannot be
when pastors are politicians, and the
conservatism of the church must put
the seal of condemnation upon this
first movement to avoid trouble and
disaster hereafter. I have voted the
Prohibition ticket heretofore ; wish I
could vote it this time entire.
