REV. THOMAS DIXON'S SERMON OK
WORLD'S .FAIR PROPHECIES.
Mutterings of Discontent and Despair In
an Age of Progress-The Social Disease.
Menaces In Europe and America-The
Gulf Between the Classes.
Nsw YOKK, Dec 31.-Kev. Thomas
Dixon, Jr., preached at Association hall
, this morning. the last of the series of ser?
mons on ** The Propbeci<?s of the World's
Fair.'* The text chosen was from Jere?
miah vi, 14: ''Saying, Peace, peace:
when lhere is no peace. *'
It had been planned that the last day
of the great Colombian exposition
should be a day of supreme triumph.
It was f?t that it should he so. Its man?
agement had been a magnificent sac
cess. The people of America had join?
ed in making it a sac cess. They had
opened it in unprecedented splendor.
They had given* their hearts' enthusi?
asm to it They had gi ven their money.
AndMthey: rejoiced in its success. Its
magnificent achievement in art and in
architecture and in the celebration of
the progress of the world was the attain?
ment of a victory for which the nation
rejoiced with a peculiar national pride..
It was a sad and tragic disappointment
which met them on the day of the close.
Instead of a day of festivity, of merri?
ment, of grand music, of rejoicing, it
was a day of gloom, sadness, silence,
foreboding. The flags on the buildings
were all at half mast. The mayor of
the city of Chicago had been stricken
down by the hand of an assassin. In?
stead of music, there was silence. In?
stead cf laughter, there were tears. And
the nation felt it. It was as if in the
midst of our rejoicing we were brought
sharply and suddenly face to face with
the fact that there was a skeleton in
the closet, a skeleton of grim and terri?
ble mien-one that could not he down?
ed at the bidding of any man or any
It is perhaps as well that this grand
world's exposition should have closed
with the flags at half mast. It would
not have been a world's fair had we not
in some way celebrated the exposition
of oar social disease. No celebration
in the closing days of the nineteenth
century that shall recite its achieve?
ment, its progress, its present position
and its promise would be completo with?
out these dark lines drawn in the pic?
T?E WORLD'S DISEASE.
* We are brought tiras face to face
with tile fact of a world's disease in the
midst of our celebrating a world's tri?
umph and progress. Restlessness, an?
archy and social disoider are facts of
which we would like to remain uncon?
scious, were it possible, but it is no
longer possible. The mob that surged
through Haymarket square and explod?
ed their bombs some years ago, the
grim monument that marks the spot
today, the mob that swayed through
the streets of New Orleans and held
the city in its grasp until i ts'deeds of
murder were wrought, the lynchings
that have disgraced the south and the
west and the north of late, the noto?
rious lawlessness and mob rule and slam
government of our cities-all these are
- sharp reminders ci the fact, that we, '
too, of late, must enroll our nation
among these that suffer from this social
In Europe there is not a nation that
does not shiver today at the thought
of possible social revolution. Anarchy
is rampant throughout the civilized
Spain attempted to crush the wretch
that had made an effort io kill one of
her great men. What was the result?
The result was that in Barcelona, while
a great theater was packed with help?
less and innocent and unoffending men,
women and children, from line top gal?
lery a fiend hurled a dynamite bomb
into the orchestra.. If both the bombs
hurled had exploded, tile entire theater
woold have been demolished, and per?
haps thousands would have been man?
gled to pieces. As it was, the horror
was enough. ? Thirty lives were lost,
and hrm?reds were wounded; The
depth of deviltry and fiendishness to
which a man must descend to be capa?
ble of audi a crime may be said to open
a new chapter in the histor}' of our civ?
France is reminded within the past
few weeks of the same great disease. A
bomb is exploded in the chamber of
deputies, with the evident dramatic in?
tention of emphasizing the irrepressi?
ble conflict between law and lawless?
ness, between anarchy and government.
It was only the merest accident that
prevented this bomb from doing the
terrible work intended'by its thrower.
Officials in Germany have recently
received mysterious packages which
contained explosives sufficient to kill.
Russia has been in a condition of
chronic anarchy for a generation.
England is reminded from day to day
of the fact of this disease in her social
The government of Italy now faces
the possibility of a social revolution
which threatens to destroy the empire
itself. The recent accession of Crispi to
power again has done little to allay the
feeling of uneasiness and uncertainty.
Crispi is the avowed enemy of the
Vatican, and yet a nigh ecclesiastic, in
commenting on his return to power, ex
habited little concern, saving by way of
parenthesis that, though Crispi was an
open enemy of the Vatican, they would
scarcely expect a hostile movement upon
his part, when the empire itself was
threatened with possible dissolution in
a social upheaval.
AN AWFUL FACT.
The threat of social disorder can no
longer be laughed out of court. It can
no longer be placed to the overland
imagination of a certain classof writers.
It is a solemn and an awful fact with
which government today stands face
to face; with which the conservative
forces of society ?land face to face.
Crime has become an epidemic. An?
archy has become a disease, and the dis?
ease mast be declared a -world epidem?
ic. The method of infection is through
ojir.debauched daily press, and it has
spread to the uttermost limits of 1
.world. The criminal who finds hi
self in prison nowadays finds that I
life is paraded in double leads, ]
achievement made the topic of conv
sation throughout the world, his mel
ods the subject of a thousand illust]
ri ons in the sensational press, his da:
life transformed from the vulgarity a
dread of crime iuto the romance of t
world rf adventure. He only regr<
that hemd not make a greater crin
nal while he was about it. The otl
young devils who are in the backgrour
waiting for an opportunity, when th
read these exploits resolve to outdo tb*
when their opportunity comes, and
soon comes, and if it does not coi
they will make it come.
In former days the brutal publici
of punishment was a great source
criminal contagion. In our time, t
sensational newspaper is the most coi
mon medium for the transfer of this h
silisk of crime. An anarchistic ou
break in one nation is sure to produ
through this means an outbreak in a
ft would be idle to suppose that a
archy is itself a separate phenomeno:
Anarchy is a criminal insanity. It is ?
insanity which is the product of a di
ease. Insanity usually comes from tl
same organic disturbance of the const
tution of the patient. In this case,
is produced by organic disturbance. '.
we seek to cure anarchy by killing a
the anarchists, we have undertaken 1
cure a disease by ministering simply 1
the surface. I do not believe that ai
archists should be spared, nor won]
any rational man advocate our sparix:
them. They should be removed freo
society as wild beasts are removed fro]
a crowded street, and by the same metl
ods that wild beasts are removed. Sue
men have no right to exist in a civilize
society. But if they should all be r<
moved by violence tomorrow the nea
day there would be anarchists, and th
next year there would be practically i
many to deal with as the year befon
Anarchy cannot be exterminated by ea
terminating anarchists, for the simp]
reason that it does, not produce itsel
primarily. It is the result of a socia
disorder. It is the madness of despai
and crime coming from a social di soi
der which must be remedied first.
It is useless for men to cry, '.'Peace

social world. It is useless to strengthe

INDUSTRY OP WAR.
What is the leal status of our indus
trial world today? As a matter of fact
it is arrayed into two grand hostile ar
mies. On the one hand are.arrayed cap
ital and conservatism in governmen
and society. Capital and conservatisn
are organized and powerful, and they ar<
not only organized, but they are mili
tant in their organization. The spirii
by which capital is continually being
strengthened in its organization is i
spirit of deep hostility against tho?
who are not within the organization,
Business has alain sentiment. Laboi
becomes more and more strictly a com?
modity, from the point of view of these
men. Humanity is relegated to the
sphere of sickly sentiments. 4 ' I will nu
my business to suit myself, or I will
not run it at all," is the motto of the
capital king of today. * * I will shut down
my business when it snits me, and il
does not matter what may become of the
. people dependent upon it. If they starve,
it is their lookout. I am running my
own business." lt is needless to say that
th is position is one of war. It is need?
less to say that it is tantamount to a
declaration of war.4
Upon the other hand, labor is organ?
izing in hostile camp some hostile
groups. The. farming ek-ment hitherto
has been a bulwark of conservatism, but
now has become the stronghold of rad?
icalism. We have groups of radical la?
bor -onions. We have gronps of radical
socialists.. And we have groups of mad?
men called anarchists. But they are all
haunted by a spirit of deep seated hos?
tility against the capitalistic and con?
servative classes of society. They are
extending and perfecting their organi?
zation, and they have shown their tre?
mendous power in the past 10 years.
They have organized strikes that have
paralyzed trade, costing millions of dol?
lars, precipitating chaos in more than
one nation in the business world. In
the spirit and mightiness and demands
of some of these organizations there is
much that is brutal and unreasonable.
They refuse to allow a man to earn a
living who will not work in their way
and through their union. They would
force him to starve, and if he attempts
to work they would murder him in his
attempt It is needless to say that this
is an act of war. It is needless to say
that the position assumed by the men
who lead these forces is tantamount to
a declaration of war in society. The
weapons they use are the weapons of
war. Boycotts and strikes and violence
are used to supplement when deemed
IS THE WAR JUSTICIABLE?
We need not .ask is this right, either
apon the part of the capitalists or upon
the part of the radicals. If war is right,
it is right. Falsehood and violence and
homicide are the elements of war. If
war is right, these things are justified.
There are some things that are worse
than war, we will agree-slavery, stag?
nation and despair.
The degradation of millions of people
leonid certainly be worse than the death
of a few thousand. LA our statesmen
and philanthropists and teachers see to it.
These are the facts cf our social re
gime today. The causes that originat- i
ed and produced this strife in the past,
and originates it, produces it, today, are
not far to seek. They are found in the
broadening of the gulf that separates
the two great classes from one another.
Farther and farther apart they are
driven each day. They know less of |
each other; they desire but tokncwl?ss j
of each other. With this alienation
nrasf grow, continuons misunderstand?
ings, and as the breach grows wider,
the clash must become more fatal at
the last. The selfishness of human na?
ture is of course a strong element in this
development. The capitalist looks out
for number one. He takes care of his
own interests. Labor has said hereto?
fore, We will look out for our organiza?
tion. If it comes in c ontact with capi?
tal, we will fight. If it comes in con?
tact with our weaker brethien, we will
crush them to death. Ignorance and
selfishness have thus crushed the weak
and have produced the despair which j
gives us a carnival of crime and suffer?
ing and want. What is to be gained to
either side as at present arrayed? Aft?
er victory, what? If capital gain a vic?
tory with its present mottoes, and labor
be made a slave, what has been accom?
plished? Capital has defeated its own
end, and in exterminating the soul of
labor it has killed the goose that laid
the golden egg. And with present fac?
tions and factional leaders if labor
gains the victory, what has been accom?
plished? The imperialism of capitalism
has been changed for the imperialism
of -torpidity and brutality, ignorance
A PROBLEM FOR SOLUTION*.
Let the chnrch of Ghrisfc see to it!
These two armies are moving toward a
clash, with all the horrors of such a war
as the world has never seen. Martial war
in the past has been brutal enough, and
yet it has its music, its fife, its drums,
its flags, its chivalry, its heroism. These
are eliminated when the weapons used
are the torch, the dagger, the highway?
man's revolver and the dynamite bomb
It is time the teacher and the preacher
and the statesman joined hands to solv?
this problem. It is time that nation
joined hands with nation to settle it.
Destroying Bank of England Notes.
With the Bank of England the de?
struction of "its notes takes place about
?-once a week, and at 7 p. m.
It used to be done in the daytime, but
made such a smell that the neighboring
stockbrokers petitioned the governors to
do it in the evening. The notes are pre?
viously canceled by punching a hole
through the "amount-in figures-and
tearing off the signature of the chief
cashier. The notes are burned in a
closed furnace, and the only agency
employed is shavings and bundles of
wood. They used to be burned in a
cage, the result of which was that once
a week the city was darkened with
burned fragments of notes. For future
purposes of reference, the notes are left
for five years before being burned. The
number of notes coming into the Bank
of England every day is about 50,000,
and 350,000 are destroyed every week,
or something like 18,000,000 every year.
The stock of paid notes for five years is
about 77,745,000 in number, and they
fill 13,400 boxes, which, if placed side
by side, would reach 2 1-3 miles. If
the notes were placed in a pile, they
would reach to a height of 5 2-3 miles;
or, if joined end to end, would form a
ribbon 12,455 miles long.-London Let- j
Over 9600 a Week For a Finger.
Zachariah A. Hubley, a prosperous
business man of Worcester, Mass., lost
a finger by the accidental discharge of
his gun while hunting in Nova Scotia
on Aug. 4 and now claims an aggre?
gate of over $600 a week from various
accident insurance companies. It was
said that he carried insurance to the
amount of over $100,000, but to The
World correspondent he said that $60,
000 would cover the amount placed in
good companies. He says he will have
no trouble in collecting the amount
claimed when he recovers.
Getting Beady For War.
All manner of points bearing upon
war are occupying the attention of the
government. There was a sharp debate
in the chamber on the subject of the
corn supply, which brought out the
fact that the government is taking pre?
cautions in this matter. Work will be?
gin at once on a series of new military
roads which are to run through the
southern districts around the city and
will have the effect of making Paris a
formidable intrenched camp in case of

President Grant is on record also for
the policy of free raw materials-the
policy of the Wilson bill. In 1874 he
wrote to Congress and said : "Those
articles which enter into our manufac?
tures and are not produced at home, it
seems to me, should be entered free. *
* I will instance fine wools, dyes,
etc." And President Grant clinched
his testimony in favor of the leading
feature of the Wilson bill, which is
free raw materials, by declaring that
"the introduction, free of duty, of j
such wools as we do not produce would j
stimulate the manufacturer of goods
requiring the use of those we do pro- j
dace, and therefore, would be a benefit j
to borne production." I
