THAT PECULIAR SPEECH.
Rev. Graft n Preaches on the May
or's Atlack on Christianity.
Taking a VI arltable View ot the Slc-
on or hie Doctrine and Vefead
las HI a Faith From the
Mir tare Assertions.
Rev. T. VT. Grafton, pastor o the
Christian chuxh, preached from the top
ic, "Does Christianity Poster TyrannjT"
last eyening, taking as his text the words
"Ye ehall kno-r the truth, and the truth 'shall
make you free."
In commencing his discourse the
preacher qu ted this paseasce from the
BRDsational address of Mayor McConochie
in welcoming the head officers ef the
Modern Woodmen to Rock Island at the
Harper's thea re meeting in honor of their
"I am sorrj to say, but it is a fact
nevertheless, and the history of the world
will prove the truth of my assertion, that
Christianity t.nd tyranny have always
marched hand in hand down through all
the ages in til! their efforts to suppress
the spreading of universal liberty and
Mr. Grafton took & charitable view of
the intent of the mayor's remarks and
said that whila they had been construed
into an attack on our churches, he did
not believe the author so intended it.
Nevertheless t s understood, it is an in
justice to the cause of Christ that needs
resentment. If he had said, ''Romanism
and tyranny tad marched hand in hand
down the ageti," said Mr. Grafton, the
candid student of history would be com
pelled to assent . But there is a wide
difference befveen the "man of sin" and
the sinless man, between meiseval

saying: "I grant you that Romanism be

ing 20.000 victims. Such is the voice of
history. But, to charge that dark chap
ter of crime against Christianity is to be
willfully ignorant of the teaching of its
founder, and of the grand moral of
After this srraigDment ot the Roman
church Mr. Grafton said:
Christianity has always been the friend
of liberty. It has been unreserved in its
championship of human rights. Take
its constitution as announced in the ser
mon on the mount and the declaration of
independence is not more outspoken
against oppression. It proscribes not
only the open violation of the rights of
man, but also the cherishing of evil pas
sions wbich Rive rise to tyranny. The
citizen of the kingdom as described in
the Bealitudes can never be a tyrant
ween Jesus said, "Love your enemies,
bless them tha', curse you. do good to
them that hate you, prav for them that
despitefully use you." He inaugurated a
revolution that means the ultimate over
throw of every enemy of human rights.
The golden rule never has and never can
Take the teaching of the apostles
to whom he committed his cause.
They attacked king-craft and priest
craft when they said "ye are kings
and priests unto God." They under
mined the institution of slavery, where
they taught tho common fatherhood of
God and bro'.hernood of man. They
have banished the curse of polgamy by
the pure ideal of the marriage relation
wbich they presented. Indeed the un
answerable ey dence of the genuinenees
of Christianity s that it should have orig
inated in such an age of tyranny and
breathed such a spirit of liberty .
Then take the influence of the church
that cherishes an open bible. After
dark centuries cf oppression in which the
bible was encbikined it again became the
pissession of the people, and with the
first ray of ligh: from its pages the strug
gle for liberty tegan. In England, after
centuries of nost terrible oppression
Wickliffe lightei the torch by his transla
tion of the gospel. Hugs caught it from
the dying hand of Wick 1 fie and hurled it
across - the f.fteenth century. Lu
ther made the morning of the sixteenth
century luminc us with the light of its
truth and paved the way to the triumphs
of the nineteent i century . These cham
pions of liberty were men of christian
faith. Nor enn we forget the Pilgrim
Fathers, who caught the fire brand of
truth and planted it in our American for
ests, and by its light laying the founda
tion of our free institutions. Have we
forgotten the in luence of the pulpit and
christain patriotism on American slavery?
Are we blind to the effort of the church
to break a worse- bondage today, the tyr
anny of alcohol, a tryanny fostered not
by Christianity, but by its enemies? No,
no, the triumph of Christianity means the
downfall of tyranny. Religious liberty,
intellectual freedom, political liberty have
always found a champion in the Christ ot
the gospel, in the truths proclaimed by
his inspired messengers and by the
churches that traly represent his teach
ings. The hit tory of the world proves
the truth of this declaration.

PROPERTY HOLDERS PROTEST
They Sue the City Officials for Treat -
wi for Re-saoTlBK the Twenty
fonrth Street Dam Result ef the
The removal by the city of the Twenty
fourth street dam and the subsequent in
junction secured by the city, preventing
the property holders from reconstructing
it, has resulted in a praecipe being filed
by Judge Wilkinson in the office of the
clerk of the circuit court, en behalf of the
property holders for a suit for trespass
against Mayor McConochie, Street Su
perintendent Blaisdell. Marshal Miller, a
number of policemen and several work
men. The real purpose of the proceed
ings is to see if the measures which have
been adopted will hold water in law as
well as the obstruction removed
did, in fact and reality. The
lot on which the dam - was
constructed is in the new addition of the
Schnell syndicate and is owned by David
L. Rowe, a non-resident, and in his bes
half R. J. McGee enters the proceedings.
In view ot the fact that the suit is filed in
Mr. McGee's name, the Union seizes upon
the idea of making political capital by
lauding the mayor and abusing Mr. Mc
Gee, whereas the case is simply one of
the legal rights of a number of property
holders on the one hand and right of city
officials on the other. The Union is hard
up for argument to further the mayor's
political ambition when it goes so far out
of its way as not only to pounce upon
Mr. McGee, but also the defeated candi
date for alderman in the Third ward.
The significance it attempts to attach
to Mr. Lloyd's candidacy is about as in
significant as the paper Itself, and its re
flection upon a number of our best citN
zens who are interested in the Schnell
syndicate, whom it accuses ot attempting
to pack the council as baseless a slander
as could possibly be. The Union will
make about as much headway in creating
popularity for the mayor sb he did for
himself in bis recent Harper's theatre
speech. The property holders in
Schnell's addition are not following the
course of the defeated congressman whose
place the mayor would love so dearly to
fill, and demanding money from the city's
treasury; they are simply seeking to
know who is right they or the city offi
cials as individuals they lay no claim on
