THE FACTS OF THE CASE.
Those friends (?) of Ihe Times who do

neighbors that the paper is nothing hut

cially busy iu their self-imposed duty of
damning the'paper and pruislutr them?
For more than a year before the Chi?
cago convention [The Times was advocat?

faith of a new and reinvigorated Democ?

now sit in judgment on The Times' De?

either from want of courage to speak
their convictions, or want of intelligence
to possess opinions continued in a semi
comatose state of innocuous desuetude
until the Chicago convention struck a
match and dispelled the darkness that
encompassed them. They discovered by
the light from Chicago that The Times
instead of being au enemy to Democracy
bad been its friend and advocate when it
needed friends and when the little band
of ofiice seekers that now assumes to

develop courage enough [to take a manly

enough to make a man a Democrat, and
that the true and cnly test of a man's
Democracy is a vote for 'every candidate
for constable, d-uuk or sober, the "boys"
may trot out. They boldly proclaim that
Democracy is not a school of doctrino to
believe iu and that a man can entertain
any theory of go\eminent and still be a
Democrat provided he votes for the can?
didate for constable put out by the ma?
chine. While many good men and friends
of The" Times will vote for the Salem
ticket they will have no tears to shed if
it is defeated. For the sake of party reg?

may, within its own ranks, orgaui/.o a

The worst enemies of Democracy are
those within its ranks who are willing to
besmirch its name in order to promote
schemes for personal aggrandizement.
When such men can put their puppets
in office they arc accomplishing what
they conceive to be the main purpose ot
party organization. Against such meu
and such methods The 'limes protests,
and if not in the name of the Democratic,
organization of Roanoke surely in the
name of all thai is Democratic, and it will
continue to protest.
The temple of Democracy iu Itoanoke
has been invaded by the party's worst
enemies. The ambitious and hungry
band that now [musters *in its halls must
be driven out before it can be made fit lor
the uses for which it was constructed.

and in too many instances no conscience.
They are for the offices and for the inter?

faith that promises them the jobs. If

Is there some mysterious relationship
between hard times and tiro losses, or is
it merely a coincidence that those losses
are greatest when business is dull and
lowest'when trade is prosperous? The
inquiry is suggested by a comparison of
the returns for the last three years. The
fire losses for the first eight months of
1S97 amounted to 171,031,700, as against
$81,588,050 for the corresponding period
of 18'JG anil $85,011,000 for the same pe?
riod in 1895. Thus it appears that these
losses touched the highest level during
the bustDess depression of 1895, and have
since steadily declined as trade has Im?
proved, f.These can hardly be regarded as
the results ot chance, hut are more likely
attributable to definite causes. The show?

TWO PARAGRAPHS?TWO WHOP?
The Kiucastle I-ferald prints the follow?
Roamke, Va., Scpt.*4.?The" fall cam?
paign opened here yesterday "when the
announcement was made that the Dem?
ocratic convention tor this legislative dis?
trict had nominated R. Randolph Hicks,
of this city, and .lohn P. Caldwell, of
Craig county, for the house of delegates.
This result was"reached after a careful
survey of the field anil all Democrats are
enthusiastically falling in Mine and en?
dorsing the convention's work. The elec?
tion here will be, "closely contested from
State Senator M. H." Clay tor, who de?
feated .1. Allen Watts, the Democratic
nominee for the Senate two years ago, is
the editor and owner of the Roanoke
Daily Timers, and his paper .has already
indicated that it will not support the
Democratic nominees. *Mr. Clay tor sets
himself up as the exponent of true De?
mocracy and it is said will ask to be ad?
mitted to the Democratic caucus of the
next legislature, though he will aid in the
effort to help defeat Messrs. Hicks and
continued from first pngo
And tirst let me invite you to an analysis !
of the text.
It may ho divided into three parts.
The first including the whole of the first
verse, und urging the obligation of a de?
cisive sacrifice of self. The second cov?
ering the first half of 'the second verse
and illustrating thisself crucifixion from
the worldward, not an a non-con forma
tiou with the world, but *a complete
transformation from It, and this trans?
formation effected by an internal work
entitled the "renewing ot the mind."
Thirilly, ?the last half of the second
verso, which" sets forth tho relation of
this'act of Consecration to the demon
stiation of .God's perfect will; it being
necessary in that good and acceptable
and perfect will of God.
Here, then, is the brief ol the subjects
as compared by their texts:
1. The Christian believer is most
unjustly entreated to the precipitation
of an act of sacrifice "which we, for con?
venience, call Consecration.
3. The natura of this sacrifice is
shown to invite a complete outward
transformation or crueilixiou 'accom?
panying an inward renewal of the mind.
3. The necessity of this sacrifice in
order to this perfect revelation of Cod's
will iu soul is plainly indicated.
Hence, we submit that Consecration
is noi an end, but rather .'a means iu or?
der to an end. In this respect it is anal
agous to, though never identical with,
repentance. As every evangelical
preacher will teach that repentance is ab?
solutely necessary in order lo a free jus?
tification unto life, so we declare into
you that Consecration is equally neces?
sary to a full salvation, or the experi?
mental knowledge of God's perfect will.
The so-called consecration of many do
not result in the .incoming of a higher
revelation, nor are they tendered with
that expectancy; but .only with the
sense of a duty performed, or with a
desire of dcotment to some ^special
service. To many Consecration mean*
nothing more than a ratification or a le
newal of repentance. To many others it
means simply a dedication to some ser?
vice in Gu'"s word But it means some?
thing more: yes, sometlr ng"different|from
this in the texts and all Scriptural
teachings -pon this subject. The snb
tance of repentance is quite different
from tho substance of Consecration.
That is deail trespasses and sins. This
is a living body?a body quickened or
made alive by the regenerating grace of
God. Dedication to God s work is, as
compared with Consecration to God, like
a housekeeper's contract to serve a man
in that capacity with a wife's covenant
of love and devotion to himself, of
IVhich housekeeping or any othet service
is but the merest incident, and which
covenant and union remain still in lov?
ing force, even when circumstances and
disabilities render housekeeping out of
the question. No, my brother; what we
watt of you, what Paul wauts of you
iu the text, what God is inciting you to,
is not a mere dedication to this or that
particular service, even to service in gen?
eral as to the ministry or to missions,
etc. Not a dedication which, tike the
housekeeper's contract, expires and the
relations ceaso when service is at an
end; but a cnicifb Ion of the world and
of self, and a covenant with Go?' him?
self that will last as long as eternity.
Not something you see that is to te re?
peated and, indeed, never fully consum?
mated, but something rather which,
like .Tesus' crucifixion, is once for all.
For Ccusecration is not a process, but ar
Look at the tense of this verb
'?present." Think of the analogy sug?
gested by the word ^"sacrifice" and see
whether you can even imagine the old
worshipper render ceremonies, types
and symbols, presenting 'and ^presenting
his sacrifice and never wholly getting it
on the altar and being done with it'.
Nor can roil conceive of his having to
present it an-1 re-present it. every '.day
or every month as sotno persons talk of
consecrating and re-consecrating, etc.
As it would have been sacrilage punisha?
ble, perhaps, with death for the old lew
to have taken back his oilVriug ".from oil"
God's altar' and appropriating it to
himself again, so he that I or felts this in?
junction concerning the Christian's
supreme act of worship has'nothing left
any more lo consecrate. And JJrightly
understood it is no more nbsurd^to ta'k
of getting married every day'than it Is
to talk about everlastingly consecrating
one's self, as if there was so much of .him
thai it took a life long process to make
the transfer, or as if the act of Conse?
cration was a mere playing of worship
and sacrifice, in which the worshipper
puts and takes his offering at will.
True, there is a process of preparation
leading up to the act of presentation,"and
many of the things which we have
heard Christians talk about consecrating
are like the hide and horns "and hoofs of
the animal?tobe left out side." the camp
while the clean meat offering ..nly, well
washed In the laver, is to be brought to
the altar of God. Hence, the language of
the text descriptive of the condition of
this sacrifice. '"Holy and acceptable."
Hut this preparation (which will be ex?
pect! d in proportion to the soul's inten?
sity to prove what God's perfect will) is
to Im distinguished from the presenta?
tion which is a final act of * the will
whereby the soul voluntarily, sincerely
and actually makes an irrevocable sacri?
fice of being and belonging unto
Consecration is a culmination and a
crisis and properly named crucifixion.
One in whom it is actualized is never apt
to forget it, though the ?lory that fol?
lows pales the sufferings and the sacri?
fice into Insignificance. No transfer of
property by deed is a more actual consum?
mation than this act, which counts
things that even gain love for Christ, No
wonder many are perplexed, confused
and mystified about God's will concern?
ing them. No wonder many have till
this day been unable to ascertain either
God's will concerning ?heir place and
work in life, oi God's will in Christ
Jesus concerning their complete salva?
tion. The difficulties in the way of ap?
prehending the subject of entire sancti
fication are not for the most part intel?
lectual difficulties. They are difficulties
which grow out of the self life which
must be nailed to the cross in order to
the demonstration of God's peifectwill
in the heart.
Hut I must close with a few thoughts
germane to this subject.
None but Christian worshippers,
brethren, are either called to or capable
of this sacrifice.
Some idea of the hold the natural
affections have upon the will to
prevent this act. may be sained both
from Paul s use of the word "sacrifice,"
and from the strong word ''beseech,"
which he employs to entreat them.
This is not a work of supernatural,

results of the great met ting must be sat?
isfactory to the xood men who have
labored zealously night and day for the
conversion of souls, especially to Evnu
pe'ist Clnrence[B. Strouse, nresident of
the Association, through whose elTorls
the meeting became a reality. Tho?e
conducting the meetings are authority
for the statement [that there have been
approximately many more than one hun?
dred so notifications, among the number
being two Baptist and three Methodist
ministers, and more than one hundred
conversions. The meetings have been
marked by the absence of anything like
fanaticism, and universal satisfaction
has been expressed by all who have at?
tended. We will also state for the bene
fit of those who seen* to think that the
doctrine here taught has been that of sin?
less perfection, that no such doctrine was
I taught or even mentioned. It would
j have been well lor people who denounce
the doctrines taught by the Holiness peo?
ple to have attended nt least often
enough to he sure of their surmises that
the doctrine is*unorthodox[nnd opposed to
the scriptures. Walle a distinction is
made by the Holiness people between
conversion and the gift ot the Holy
Ghost, the burdens of the p'endings of
the Rev. Joseph Smith has been, the
"higher life" consecration, sancciflcation
and purity of heart. As an outsider we
have no hesitancy In saying that Mr.
hmith Is a remarknhlo and powerful
preacher. We have an idea that it would
hardly b 3 unsafe to follow the teachings
of a man, who after twenty years of
preaching, says, tlu.it the only ambition of
his life is "to open the Bible in the nower
of the Holy Ghost." Mr. Smith has en?
deared himself to all classes of people,
and if Christianity may be summed up as
meaning "blumeness love" then he must
be a man of God, for in all of his preach?
ing nothing fell from his lips to offend:
nothing Mke satire against any denomi?
national sect, nothing against any of the
churches, nothing but the simple doc?
trine of purity of heart and that "the
