ovibrs,K tim0 since the Register cx
usod the opinion that Mr. Cleveland
' not deilre a fourth nomination and
'third term, and in due time would
limself say so. This was merely an
opinion, and we are griovod to have to
Btate that tho signs of tho times are not
favorablo to its soundness.?Dmville.
To nuK tho electric lamps of the city
by a moonlight schedule may bo more
economical; but it will certainly be far
leBS convenient and comfortable to the
average citizen whose business or pleas?
ures necessitates traveling over the
muddy streetB and dilapidated board?
walks after dark. Ttarn, too, the chances
under such conditions for heavy damago
suits against the city will bo materially
increased. In view of theBo facts, un?
less the margins in tho relative cost of
tbe old and the new plan be consider?
ably in favor of tbe latter, it would ap?
pear that in making Buch an arrange?
ment Council will be standing very
much in its own (moon) light.
Mit E*:kd, of Maine, is said to regard
the acceptance of the speakershlp of
the Houao of Representatives somewhat
bb a sacrifices of his chances for the
Presidency, because of the cumbersome
majority of his party in Congress and
the many conflicting interests with
which he would have to deal. He had,
however, better take the chances and
keop prominently before tho people as
speaker, or else Governor McKinley
might come out far ahead of him in the
race for tho Republican nomination for
President next year. In fact, just now
the Oaio man seems far In the lead, and
with the tariff as tho main issuobotwoen
the two great parties the man from
Malno would almost certainly be com?
palled to take a back seat, so far as the
nomination for President is concernod.
Theke: seems littlo probability, Bays
a Washington dispatch, that Russell,
the pos'.oftloe robbar, who Is now under
arrest at Bruges, Belgium, can be
brought back to Illinois for trial. This
is duo to the f&c*. that our troaty with
Belgium do^a not recognizi as an ex
tradit&blo offansa the erimo for which
Killoran, Allen and Russell now stand
indicted in tho federal court for tho
Springfield, III , district, namoly,
"breaking Into a postoflice with the in?
tention to commit burglary or other de?
predation." Tho Postoflice Department
has no doubt that the man held at
Bruges is Russell, the postofflce robber,
who escaped from tho Ludlow street
jail, in New York.
Secretary Mouton, in his annual re?
port, will take up tbe system of gov?
ernment inspection of meats and will
point out some of tho defects in it as it
now exists. Tbe law permits tho fedoral
authorities to condemn, but not to
destroy, and thus stands in tho way of
any effectual interference on tho part of
the government to Drevent the con?
sumption of diseased meat in this coun?
try. Mr. Morton says, however, that
there is a remedy for tho dofect, wbich
is to bo found in appeallug to tho owners
of diseased stock, or to act in co-opnra
Aion with State governments, and he
urges that steps he taken looking to tho I
extension ot tho national government's
prerogative in this dlrectlou.
THIRTY-SIX thousand New Jersey
Democrats refused to go to tho polls at
the late election, 1S7.000 ot those in
Pennsylvania did tho same thine, and
155,000 of those in Now York did like?
wise, though the Democratic platform
in each of these States endorsed the
President's principles and policies. And
yet the cuckoos say the Democratic de?
feat In all those States was a robuke to
the bosses and an endorsement of the
President. The true reason of the de?
feat was the faot that all tho enthusiam
and iovo of Democracy has been taken
out of the Democratic party by tho two
national administrations it has had since
the war, and its success or defeat has
become of little or no interest to thous?
ands of men who formerly devoted much
of their time, monoy and work to Becure

General Milks, in his annual report,
calls special attention to the defenceless
condition of the seaooast cities of the
United States, and urges that tho neces?
sary appropriations ba mado to securo
an effective resistance to the armored
cruisers of any first-class power with
which tuis country might in the course i
of time be r.t war. He says that a tor?
pedo system as perfect as could bo mado
would not be a sufficient protection
against heavily armored cruisers, owirg
to the depth of water and width of the
channels of many of the harbors of tho
eoacoast cities of tho United States, and
he estimates the cost of such fortifica?
tions at $125,000,000. This is an im?
mense sum, but Uanoral Miles' plan of
selling Western army posts would go far
towards furnishing the required amount, |
while the work to be done would fur?
nish employment to a largo number of
men and be the means of distributing a
great deal of money among the people
of tho United States. Tho recommends
tlon cf tho commander- in-chief of tho
army deaerves tho serious attention of
Congress, as a wa- with such a power as
England, in tho destruction of wealth
and property aiong the seaboard and on
the great lakes, might oost in a few
months several times the estimated cost
of protecting thorn.

WORK Of TBE SPIRIT. j
The Ministry of Evangelist Htrouso in ;
Editok ok The Timeb:?A revival !
season inaugurated at the Bethel
Ghurob, Sinking Greek, Gralg county,on
Sunday morning, October 37, conducted
by Evangelist Clarence B. Scrouso, ter?
minated on November S, and resulted in
235 to 240 conversions, besides many re?
newals ot the aovenants among old
church members ot the several denom?
inations, members who after many yearB
of church membership confessed that
they lived in known Bins all the days of
their church membership and knew no
bettor until Mr Sirouse convinced them
by reading the Scripture on the subject.
It Is amazing how many aouls are de?
ceived on that subject, and though pro?
fessing Christ, and connected with ono
or other religious denominations, yet
never know wnat It was to have a con
Bcienco void of offense toward God and
man, having a "legal religion" of "my
duty," instead of a "religion of love,"
which rejoices in the privilege of doing
something for Christ's Baku and IUb
glory?saved from *in and kept by tho |
power of Iiis Holy Spirit, which sancti
tles the Boul and fits it tor Buch work as
tbe Father in His infinite love and wis?
dom calls for; and which aeals tho soul
unto His coming with power and glory.
About thirty souls professed the bap?
tism of His Holy Spirit unto Barctiflca
tion for a special work in His vineyard,
and prove their ability by grace to re
joioe at all times and in everything give
thanks, thus bearing a living testimony
to the Scriptural truth taught in the j
Bible, and as preached by Evangelist
Not oven the most experienced in 1
evangelistic work in this community
had ever seen such a powerful demon?
stration of tho Holy Spirit as pervaded
thlB community and arrested all claBses
ot sinners. Evon tho most hardened
who had been many times reproved and
beseechcd, molted down and bowed at
the foot of the oross with few excep?
tions (threo of those made their pro?
fession since), so that tho entire com?
munity is almost unanimous for Christ.
Tho work is permanent. The Holy
Spirit did not leave th-.i community, but
is Btill at work and will remain with
every loyal "Child of the King" and
will keep that which is committed unto
Him and continue to answer tho prayers
of the sanctified souls in behalf of the
very few rebellious ones remaining, and
bring bleaslnirs to the- faithful ones who
are "standing on the promises of God."
I dare say at least a tbousand hearts
beat In love toward the evangelist who
has endeared himself to them through
his fearless but faithful and loving
ministry, and their prayers of faith and
hoarts of love to him and to our preolous
Saviour cannot fail of bringing blessing
to him and support him in bis further
and possibly still moro efficient minis?
try, actuated by the Holy Spirit, upon
which alone ho depends in an his work.
I never saw an evangelist more simple
and practical in tho exposition of the
Scriptures, morn pointed and p >sitive in
his application, moro searching and
scathing In his arraignment ot tho sin?
ner at tho bar of his own conscience,
moro hold in taking his position against
sin without partim.ity aa to the class or
social Standing of tho sinner, and yet
more tender and loving, as well as
lovely, in his sympathetic representa?
tion of tbe character of tho blessed
Jesus as the Crucified Redeemer, the
Holy Spirit as tho comforter, teacher
and proBervor. yet so avo-BO to self
praise, or man's glory.
Tbe heart that does not yiell to tbe
appeals of Buch a sanctified minister
must be nigh Into perdition, indeed. I
would like to describe some of the
scones of the Holy Spirit's operations as
He manifested Himself in tho com?
munity during these meetings, but I
oould ecarcoly begin to describe so vast
and awful manifestations. Saint and
sinner alike acknowledged that it is Gcd
working in and among the people. May
God continue to bless Mr. Strouse and
his loader of song, Prof. W. E. Burnett
