Clil Didn't Know that Cradle cf
American Liberty Was Built
With Money Made In the Cra
tile of American Slavery.
A llttlo scrap from Tho Now York
World put mo to thinking. A certain
Englishman named Hobson lectured
:nda night In rhllido.lphla on ethics
l askod If It right to accept
Parity fruin 111 gotten gains or from
fuch mea as Carnegie, Rockefeller ana
Rhodes, who made their fortunes by
uonopollea and trusts and crushing
cut tho small dealers.
The editor of The World answers,
"If charity money is to bo scanned and
disinfected whore fchall the process
stop. Shall we boycott Faneull hall,
tfc cradle of liberty, because It was
cftllt from tho profits, tho blood money
op Peter Faneull's slaves? 'The Jolly
Cacholor' and from his slave trade ana
foiling beads and watered runi3 to the
Indiana? These were tne bases oi
many New England fortunes now be
Ing used for generous purposes. We
aro Inclined to 6ay let charity have
what It can get. Tho more sinful the
channel through which fortunes havJ
rme the better It Is that It should now
f diverted to good uses. Luther Bald
s4 was folly to let the devil have all
ti'.e good tunes." That Is good doctrine.
"'God sent It, but the devil brought It,"
has good foundation. But I didn't
know that the cradle of American lib
erty waa built with money made in the
cradle of American slavery. Appleton
says that prior to 1776 New England
had brought from Africa over 300,000
slaves and sold them further south,
fiT 11 for awhile they were in such do
wdnd that tho negro traders in Massa
chusetts seized and sbld the young In
dians who had strayed too far from
their wigwams and actually stole and
carried away and sold the eon of King
Philip, an Indian chief, who was at
peace with the whites. But what
would not a people do who would burn
or drown women as witches as they
did at Salem?
VMy friend from Oregon seems anx
ioito handle my book and sell it, but
liysts that I shall make more proof
that General Grant was a slave owner
and hired them out until the surrender.
I referred him to Grant's biography,
written by General James Grant Wil
son, who was chosen by Grant to write
it. If his people will not believe him,
neither would they believe if one rose
frcoYthe dead. The trouble is that
most pX his people are either foreign
ers or of foreign birth and don't know
anything of American history. The
truth is our people are profoundly ig
norant of the history of their fathers
and forefathers. Not one in a hundred
know that Georgia was the first state
tfiaX prohibited the African slave trade,
rsylvanla sold negro slaves at sher
iff's sales as late as 1843. New Eng
land abolished slavery long before, but
continued the Importation from Africa
on the sly until 1861. Our people
bought them because they were profit
able In the cotton fields and In the cul
ture of rice and sugar cane. For twen
ty yafl before the war our best people
wish t.6 abolish slavery, not as an act
of humanity, but because they were
increasing so fast and were In the way
of poor white men and were demoraliz
ing to the sons of the rich, and their
amalgamation with the whites was a
visible curse in many families. And so
Joseph Henry Lumpkin, our chief jus
tice, began a correspondence with Hen
ryClay about hi3 Bcheme of gradual
emancipation. My father and many
other co-operated with the plan, bat,
the nAlignant threats of the abolition
ists smothered it in its birth.' The
other day I had a social call from some
northern gentlemen, and as the sub
ject qf the war incidentally came up
a soli'i veteran happened to mention
something about Fremont and said he
knew Lim very well, for he was the
first man he ever voted for and that he
served under him during the war.
Well, said I. do vou know where he
was bora? No, he did notrup north

Geor,'ariDorn in Savannah, educated
In Charleston. His father was a
Eret'chman, his mother a Virginia

tor in mathematics, was appointed lieu
tenant of engineers and with NIcola3

My northern friend was "amazed. No,
we don't know very much until we
got too old to make our knowledge
useful. Fremont waa a very remark

Ho was too !:! b-hH to wait f r orders,
but, like Andrew Jitckaon, just went
ahual. Ho anion. led tho thu highest
peak of tho Kucky Mountains. It in
named Fremont's poak and is 15,500
feet hluh. Ho uuarreled with I'hil
Kearney and Kearney had Lira arrett
ed and Rent to Washington, where ho
was tried and found guilty, but Fro,!
dent Folk pardoned h!m. Boon after
thia numerous friends bosan to groom
L'ln an a candidate for president. Ho
accepted tho abolition platform and
waa beaten. When our civil war carao
ou he waa made a brigadier general
and put in charge of tho Missouri ter
ritory. Ono of his first acta was to
abolish slavery in that state. This
made General Grant mad and every
body else who lived there and owned
slaves, so he waa reported to Mr. Lin
coln, who annulled his proclamation
and ordered him to Washington. He
was offered other commands, but re
fused them and waa retired from ac
tive service. After the war ho con
cluded to build a railroad from Toxav
arkana to El Paso and got tho state of
Texas to give him a liberal grant of
land along the entire route of 800
miles. Ho went to Paris with this
grant and agreed to come back and is
sue bonds on it and get the United
States government to indorso tho
bonds. He got the money and built
the road, but failed to get tho United
States government to lndorca tho
bond3. Th French bondholders never
found this out until their money was
all spent. Then they had him arrested
and bound over to court to bo tried for
fraud. When the court came on ho
did not appear, but forfeited his bond.
How it was finally settled ihe record
does not tell. He wa3 a wonderful
man and never got tired of the excite
ment that nourished him, and his wife
stuck all the closer to him during his
trials. She was a wonderful woman,
and w-aa beloved and admired by all
who knew her. Chauncey Depew said
he know of ono school where twenty
seven girls were named for her.
On the whole am obliged to admire
Fremont's character and he was r

tnoiTow wandur away &o far from Hun ih
to ma1a jrrievoun nniitukes. The whole of
the Old Testament is a ory to those who
have wandered away from God to return.
In their wanderings we get our Icmsoiih,
and in (Jod's cry we have certain evidence
that though we may have sinned, yet He
in always ready to put our sum away from
liim and from us.
One of the best illuntratioris in tho Old
Testament, to my mind, i.1 that of Saul,
lie made a splendid appearance nn a king.
When the people demanded a king God
gent Sainnel to look one out, and he found I
Saul, who.-ie appearance was kingly. If
nothing else recommended him to the
throne this did. The first thing Samuel
did was to pour the anointing oil upon his
head, which was an indication that Go4
waj takini: him for His own, and thus
separating him from the world. A little
later we read that the Spirit of the Lord
rains upon Saul, ami it looks as if he must
have been liiied with His presence, and
must have fulfilled the highest expecta
tions of the people. A little further on in
his history the man of God appears to'
him. waving: "God is with thee, thou
mighty man." And we have come to the
conclusion, as we look upon him, that it is
indeed true, and when the people crv out
for the king and Saul is called forth, he
stands head and shoulders above the men
gathered about him, and involuntarily the
people, when they look upon him, are
stirred to such enthusiasm that they shout,
"GOD SAVE THE KING."
Afterward, when he went to Gibeah.
there gathered around him "a band of
men whose hearts God had touched."
Thus the story gnos on, with Saul rising
ever higher and liigjier in the popular es
teem and favor. et in the end, and in
the face of it all, he blackened the pages
of the Old Testament, made the ruling oi
hia kingdom a failure, ond died by his own
hand really, in the sight of God, a mur
derer. One cannot read such story as this
without trembling, and it is for each one
of us to-day that the Bible was written,
that we might know God, ond that we
iniffht know ourselves.
I have learned from this story of SauL
the king, that it k possible for one to be
bom of the Spirit, really to be saved, and
to be saved forever, and yet
MISERABLY FAIL . .
in the sight of God.
I remember preaching in one of the
cities of Indiana. For four days the church
waa crowded, but a crowd is not an indi
cation of a blessing. Not infrequently the
presence of a crowd is an indication of
defeat, for preachers ore apt under such
circumstances to put their confidence in
men, rather than in God. During all the
four days not a hand was lifted for prayer,
nor a single indication given that there
might be an awakening on the part of the
Christian people. The field I was next to
labor in' seemed quite ready for the bar
vest, and in the preparatory services many
people were being saved. I called the min
isters of the Indiana city together and
asked them to give me the privilege of
closing my engagement with them, that
there waa some barrier in the way of the
working of God's Spirit and that I felt
when I preached as if I was bound with
chains, After a little conference one of
the ministers requested that the decision
be withheld for a little, that he felt sure
that he knew where the difficulty was. As
the leader of our force of personal work
era we had one of the members of this
minister's church, a man well known
throughout his own State, and a judge of
one of the highest couru. Somehow it
leemed that when this man passed through
the audience he sent a cold wave over the
people. From the conference of ministers
the pastor of this church went into the
Diliee of this old judge and said to him:
''I hare been hearing rumors on the
streeta for a long time that your life is not
Dlean, and I have come to say that if these
rumors are untrue I desire to take some
none stanu witn yxu to contradict them,
ut I have also come to sav that if thev
are true I will stand nearer to you than a
brother, and help you to got free from the
power of your besetting sin."
The old judge looked a moment at hum,
and then put his head on his arms on the
desk and sobbed out:
"They aro all true, and more."
In a moment they were on their knees
in prayer, and it waa but a moment mora
before the old judge rose a delivered man,
free from tbe power of his sin.
I waa iust lifting my. hands to pronounce
the 'LeneujcTTon at Tie cTdscoTan cTternoon
service when the church door opened and
the old judge came in. Having lifted his
hand to ask permission to speuk he made
''My friends, I have been known for
years as one of tho members of the church
and as an officer of the church, but for a
long time my life has been robbed of its
power and my soul of its peace. I have
lost my influence in my home, and I fear
almost altogether in my city. But I have
gotten right with my minister, and right
with God. and I have come to ask -your for
giveness. The, confession was made with sobs.
There was no benediction pronounced that
afternoon. The people ail filed out one
way. Some took the hand of the judge to
Ray "God bless you," gome to say nothing,
but to pass with tear-wet cheeks and burn
ing hearts. But when the evening service
came, and the sermon had been preached
there was a remarkable change. The at
mosphere seemed like heaven. Fully fifty
people pressed their way to the. front tc
accept Chxiat as their Saviour. The first
man to come was the old judge, with hi
arm around a poor lost miin, who was
hopefully saved. In lees than six dayi
more than 500 people came pressing theii
way into the kingdom.
1 here were eoveral reasons why Saul fell.
In the' first place, lie waa jealous of Da
vid; itjiroused all the hatred in hia sou
to see David beloved and honored, while
these thintrs hd been denied to him. But
it is not the end of his sin. It really seemf
as if jealousy must have been born m
hell; if one lia the seed of it in hia na
ture he ia somehow compelled by a force

THEN COMETH THE END.
The day of awards is k great day. It is
really the judgment seat of ChriHt, when
we are to receive the reward of the deeds f
done through the body. It is not a time
when we are judged for sin, for the sin
question was all nettled at the cro. for
those who accept Jesus Chrint. It is not to
be confused with the day of judgment spo
ken of in the twenty-fifth chapter of Mat
thew; and certainly it is not identical with
the rfreat white throne judgment presented
in the twentieth chapter of Kevelation. It
is simply the day when the Master, before
wliom the records of our lives are laid
bare, shall give to us the reward for our
faithfulness, or express His estimate of
I can see the Master, with His people
fathered before Him. A name is called
that is familiar, and I see that one stand
ing, beiore Uinx with great expectancy.
Then the Master speaks with that voice
that John tells us sounds l'ke the flow of
many waters, that voice that stilled the
temefit tossed sea, and caused Lazarus to
break the bonds of death. I hear Him
speak. The crowns are being lifted up,
and the first one is the crown of life. I
hear Him say:
"This is given to the one who has done
little things well for My plory, or to the
one who has suffered for Mv sake. You
might have had it, but you failed in your
own home. You had no testimony for your
own circle of friends. A kind word you
might have spoken, but you left it unsaid.
Tlie cup of cold water was never given.
You might have had the crown of life, but
it has been taken by another."
I see Him hold aloft the second crown.
"Thia," Ho says, "is given to the one
who has done hard wtrk for Me. I suf
fered the pains ot Gefhsemane ana tne
mockings of the crowd, and the stripes of
the ltoman flagellator, and the pains of
hell upon the croas. This crown is for the
one who has endured all things if only My
cause might have been advanced. But
alasl when there came a time when the
church seemed about to move forward you
opposed it. When , thousands of souls
might have been converted your prejudice
ogainst the work of the Holv Ghost
BLOCKED THE BLESSING.
You might have had the crown, but an
other has taken it."
I see Him hold aloft the third crown,
resplendent with jewels. All the angely
"Thia is the soul-winner's crown."
There has always been ioy in the pres
ence of the angels of God over those re
deemed from -sia.
"You might have had this crown, but
alasl your culture, your intellectual
strength and your social, position never
won a soul for Me. The members of your
own household were led into My kingdom
by others. The people in your own store
did not know you were Mine."
I remember once holding a series of
meetings in Taris, Illinois. In walking
down tne street with one of my assistants
I heard him talking with a young -man,
asking him to be a Christian, but he made
no impression upon him. I heard him say,
"Your mother wants you to become a
Christian, does she not?" And the young
man began to cry. Then I heard him ask,
"Your father wants you to become a
Christian, does he not?" And there was
no answer. But soon I heard him make
thia statement: "My father is an officer in
the ehurch and my mother is a leader in
the work of the women's society in the
church, but neither of them has ever spo
ken to me about my soul."
I believe many a father and mother will
stand before the Judge on the great day of
awards and hear tne words:
"You are crownless. Your children were
not saved, or if they were, in their salva
tion you have had no part. You mi?ht
have had this crown, but another has
I can see Him holding aloft the fourth
crown, the crown of glory. I can hear Him
picture how one came into the church
from great depths of sin; how his constitu
tion had been undermined by the power of
an evil life; how he had been saved by
the power of God and cheered bv the
warm hand clasp and the sympathizing
word, and a brother's sympathy to hold
out to the end. And I can almost hear
"Such ah one sat beside you in church
and walked with you in the streets, or
in tbo store, or possibly lived with you in
your home( and you said never a word.
You let him siip away from fellowship
with Christ and when he wandered you
exclaimed in surprise: 'I expected no
I can catch the tones of His voice, as
"You might have had thia crown, but
another has taken it."
I see nim hold aloft the fifth and last
crown the crown of righteousness. I
hear ffim 6ay:
"Did I not promise that I would come
ogain? Had not I written it over ond over
again in tho book? Was not Jine added to
line, statement added to statement, that
it like manner as I went awoy I should
come back? Were not oil the propheciea
of My coming fulfilled, even to the last de
tails pf Mr Rfe, My suffering ond My
death? Did you rot have faith that if one
prophecy was fulfilled the others might
have been fulfilled also?"
And then that crowp which is to me
the most beautiful, the brightest ond tho
best, is held aloft for a moment, dazzling
in its glory, and I hear Him say:
"You might have had thia crown, but
another haa taken it."
We may miss the five crowns by our un
faithfulness, yet we may be saved, "so as
by fire." But one thing must be: we must
6ee Him faee to face.
