AT THE TENT.
The Work of Saving Souls Goes
. The largest congregation. t??A hns yet
assembled at the morning services greet?
ed Dr. White at the Baptist tent yester?
day morning. Tho services were opened
by singing "Showersof Blessings-" xTfee
opening services were'eonductod by Rev.
"William Liunstord and the opening prayer
was offered by Dr. L. G. Broughtoo.
Dr. White then arose and after reading
a list of persons w!ho Teqsested the rpray
era of the church read a scripture 'lesson
from Hebrews, 11th 'chapter, beginning
with the 34th verse.
The swtojectof his discourse was "The
Heroes of F-adth" or "Self Denial,"
teaching that without lalth nothing
could be done, in nur religious, social,
business or political world. The success
of every undertaking depended upon
lH.lth. In part he said:
"This," said he, "is tho catalogue of
faith. There is no great deed without
great faltb. True of business iw well as
religion. Moses was a hero of -self-denial.
The first step in 'his public -life was to
deny himself The throne?refused to be
called the son of Pharoah's daughter.
Out of this, howbver, came Che greatest
blessing ol' bis life. It's so to-day. Can't
serve both the world and the'Lord at the
"This is the weak point in our
churches. Allowing members to go with
the world, dancing, playing cards and
such things; you say you go -with them
to save them. It's not so. I tell you you
can't go with so-cnlled society 'to day and
be a child of Christ. Yonr pnnch bowl
business is of bell. You society folks can
"ctt&s" some of those preaofacrs;*>ou may
"cuss" me if you want to, but this thing
is ot hei' and the church member who
does it is going there.
"If your religion don't >raake you will?
ing to give money withoat having it
pullei out ot you, you are not right.
Your work for God is not a willing ser?
vice. Wealth iis effervescent. Some peo?
ple wfoo have >bullt fine homes in this city
can't ?et money enough to 4jet back to
"Pieaaure isithe devil's net. Some of
yoi mothers are era zy to get your daugh?
ters into so-called 'society.' You think it
the meridian of life when she gets there.
Oh, shame upon such matters! God have
mercy on you'!
"Religion is'no -reproach today except
from those little upstarts who walk
around in the garb of a dude. The y say
it's fogy to be a Christian. They laugh
at consistent Christianity. I tell you
what it reminds mo of?a pap barking
at an elephant. -Sensible people attach
no reproach to a follower of Christ.
"Think of it! Joy in religion! They
more tb.au pay for what we give up.
What joy thore will be In meeting of old
heroes of tbe oross afterj a while. Oh,
think of it, Christians! Get ready for
that day of reunion'! I've never known
God to speak so plainly as He 'has in the
last few days :n Roauoke; first, the me?
chanic, then the babe, then last, one of
the leadinir-citizens of your city. Oh,
friends, get ready for Jesus!"
Tbe opening set vices at. tna Bnptist
tent last night wer? conducted by Rev.
Win. Lunsford, and the singing was led
by J. P. Fllppo.
Ae usual the tout was filled to over?
flowing and the intercut seemed 'to ibe
unabated. The opening prayer was made
by Rev. J. B. Taylor, of Salem.
Dr. White then announced [services for
10 a. m. and 8 p. m. ta-day, but no ser-.
vices Sunday morning: also a special ser- j
mon to railroad men Sunday .afternoon at
3:30 o'clock. . j
? Dr. White prefaced fads remarks with a
reference to the attack made ou him by
the mayor of Macon and spoke of the
corruptness of that city's government.
He selected his text from Job, 27iAi chap?
ter and 13th ver*e: "This in the portion
.of the wicked man."
"The uncorrupted man i* spiritually .

how ?*>ml or upright he may be. There
are *b*t two masters, nud you cannot serve
both ?of them. 'He that ?a not for Me Is
against Me,'said Christ, and if you are
not for Christ in tho fight against sin,
you nre agniust Him and tor the devil.
You ate in the army ot tho devil end un
?enomy ol Christ's and God will destroy
all his enemies. You uro also the enomy
of the church, and of yourself. You spend'
all your time looking after the things
that concern the had and neglect those
that concern the soul. Without Christ
you are your own worst enemy. You are
also a dangerous man.
"I am not afraid of a sot; but the busi?
ness man who can take his three drinks
per day is of far more danger to the ris?
ing generation tban the ?ot. Boys fol?
low their father, and unless you set them
a good example it is hard to lead them
He tnen closed his discourse by extend?
ing" an invitation to come '.to Christ and
twenty-five persons ^professed their fa'th
and came forward. The benediction was
pronounced by Rev. T. J. Shipuian.

SPEAKER REED IS FIRM.
He Refuses to Deviate From the Course
Laid Out Regarding Committees.
Washington, .Tune 11.?.Speaker Reed
has recently been urged by .many Repub?
lican Congressmen to appoint a commit?
tee on foreign affairs to consider the Cu?
ban (iuer>ti"n; also a committee on bank?
ing and currency to consider the bank?
ruptcy bill. The Speaker declines to ap?
point thest#bommittees for the reason that
a single deviation from the course out?
lined by him would result in immediate
autl insistent demands for the appoint?
ment of other committees.
The Speaker-is determined that there
shall he ro geneial legislation at this,ses?
sion of Congress if he can prevent it. He
is particularly opposed to indiscriminate
prlTate pension legislation. THe says that
every Northern member of the House has
private pension bills which he wants to
have passed, nniL.he might as well ap?
point a committee on pensions Jos a com?
mittee ou foreign affairs. Moreover,
there are many membersTasking .for the
appoint incut of ji committee on-coinage,
weights and measures because I hey want
to bring up hills looking to the agitation
of the silver question. Consequently,
the Speaker says that be will not deviate
from the course which he is pursuing.
