frit m!s. this will all end in smoke, unless
you are honest! Honesty is the best pol?

dishonest man was ever blessed. God
wants honest people, if you are not will?

you to hold your peace and never ask (!o<l
for this life, for it is simply a mockery.
Have a definite transaction with (Jod:
do not [day with God or mock Him.
When (ioil speaks to you, he honest with
Him: let Him tleal with you. Do not be
afraid of His touching your heart; ao not

The I.old Jesus Christ can put his linger
on the right spot at once to make you
smart. Oh. Iriends, be honest with God
about, your condition. ?~.od finds compar?
atively few people who are honest with
Ulm, nnd that Is why thousands of peo?
ple go to conferences and return home as
bad as they went. The reason Is?not.
because the Lord did not speak to them
?not because the preacher.] were not
plain with them?but because they did
iiot want to be honest with God. They
wanted to ybld something, and keep back
(something, when Ho told them to yield
2. Expect great things only from (Jod.
".My soul, wait thou only upon God;
for my expectation is from Him." (Psalm
Expectation must bo only from God?
not fron, any tnau. Do not see your
preacher,- -do not praise a man,?do uot
talk much about n lunu,- do uot call a
man wonderful. You will be sadly dis?
appoint! <1: you ore to Miave your expecta?
tions only from Him. My friends, 1 wnnt
you to give, very good attention to this
point. If you expect any thin a from a
man, you will ha disappointed, and it
will serve you tight. Don't praise man,
but expect great things only from God.
? k Obedience. This Ja a most important
point if you want to find the life more
abundant. "And we are His witnesses
of these tbings; and so is also the Holy
Ghost, whom God bath given to them
that, obey Him." ( Acts f>:S-2.)
Oh, would you like to obey God:- Yen
must come down ? prido of life, position,
strength, wealth and reputation?all
must close down. Obey in all these
points. "Obedience is better thai: ?acrl
iice." If you don't like tu obey.' it is
belter for you to blame yourself and not
God. No disobedient child will ever get
a blessing from God.
Do not think you know much, but
know enough to obey. On'wbat twig are
you perching? Come down from your
twig. You may be a clergyman, you may
belong to lbs laity- -you may be a leach
er, evuUfxelist, preacher,?whoever you
may be, listen to God. ami come down ?
obey, if you dc not obey, you arc tdmply
The Lord knows all the nooks and cor?

thing from Him. If you are not obedient,
do uot blame anybody else afterwards if
you do not get a blessing; you have to
blame yourself Go-t has spoken to thou?
sands Mid thousands of people in-fore
this, but thev have not found any bless?
ing, .lecause they did not obey.
Kncoheua was lodging himself upon a
twig, and Christ said, "Zacchens, "take
hasto Mid comedown." He obeyed; be
made haste and came down, and found
life eternal?and life more al umlaut,too.
"And when Jesus came to the place, be
looked up and saw him, and said unto
him, Zacchens, make, haste and come
down; for to-day I most abide at thy
house." "And he made haste, and came

ANNEXATION OF HAWAII.
Former Minister Thurston Speaks of
This Country's Policy.
Mew York, Dec. 11.?At the meeting of
the i'atria Club,atOeltnonico'slast night
Lorin A. Thurston, formerly minister
from Han-ait to thi* country, made an
address on tne annexation "f the islands
to this country.
Mr. Thurston first treated the subject
historically, showing that every adminis?
tration from Tyler, in 18-12, to McKinley
had taKen the stand that no foreign na
tion should control theis(nds,and quoted
documents from three secretaries of
State, Lcgarc, Webster and Clay, which
recommended war with France rather
than let that power laku possession of
Mr. Thurston treated exhaustively the
subject of Hawaii being the strategic key
-if the Pacific, and. as such, being of In?
calculable Importance to this country.

Turning then to the tenth chapter of
Luke he read the parable of the man who
went from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell
among thieves, and was succoied by the
gootl Samaritan. He thought it would
be well for every one to read [it regularly
every lew days, so that they might bo
able to answer the question, "Aud who
is my neighbor?" It is an Important
"Do not talk," he said, "about loving
your neighboi as yourself. You do not
come within a thousand miles of it. Sup?
pose I ask you whether you dc or not. 1
will begin right here on this platform
(turning to the clergymen). We have been
a long while finding out who our neigh?
bor is. 1 belleve^if the principles of that
pat able were carried out for twelve

This country is full of priests and Le?
"I tlo not know that we are much bet?
ter. 1 have :;u t a great many men who
did not believe a black man had any soul.
That is just, what the Jews believed i>f
the Samaritans. In California they do
not believe a Chinaman has any soul. An
orthodox Jew would not have anything
to do with a Samaritan.
"I see that Samaritan with a shining
face. 1 like to see a good Samaritan: they
are very scarce. He heard the wounded
man aud saw that he was a Jew.
.'1 "The Samaritan gave Ulm a little oil
and put it in Iiis wounds. Where he uot
Iiis bandage I do not know, but probably
he tore up the sleeve <">f his own gown;
and when ho saw the poor fellow was
ffliLttng nwav he gave htm a little wine.
There'was more prejudice taken Jotit of
that Jew- in thirty minutes- than by years
of argument There was no philosopher
in the world that, could have made that
Jew believo'there^was any good in a Sa?
maritan. How are you going to disabuse
men <.f such impressions but by kindness!
Put. your work along with your talk.
"I get a great many Inquricn asking

churches wont is some drawing churih

pulpit snd put a lot of crabs down in the
pews, mil be could .'accomplish noth'ug.
They do not want, strangers in their pew.
They have hired it. and paid for it. Von
have not trot to say to a man, 'What did
you come into my pen- for?1 You can look
him out, or look him all over, and look
at his rusty coat. If his clothes are not
tip to the mark, speak to the sexton and
say, 'M hat did you put that man in my
pew for!-' D ev?ry durch in Philadel?
phia nad ten gootl Samaritans they would
(ill that church full. Do the ministers
say that is right? Then say so. The
common people tiro not wanted in mir
rich and aristocratic chinches. I wi.-h
that word could be swept out of exist?
ence. I wish to Cod that there was not
a rented pew n the whole United States.
I Applause. I Why don't you tight it out
then? If you say so, why don't, you get
it:- \V* want free pews, and let ns have
them.' Wo want a revolution in the
church of God tit litis time. 1t is a pity
to sie ihe millions of money locked up in
bur line churches, And the churcht s lock?
ed up except for a few hours each week.
I.id these line churches be opened Sun

i come on other nights. Let them take
your seals. Hut some of you will say.
'They will carry oil* the hymn books and
wear out. the carpets.' Let them do it.
I would iike to see one church worn out.
if you have some gcod Samnritnns you
mi'.rht wear it ou:
"How many are there in Ibis audience
that have spent one night watching over
a poor drunkard, the son o. some pnor
mother, whose all he is' Who evei
thought of [taking such a fellow and
upending the whn'e night with him,pray?
ing with him, and trying to lend him
bacic to ways of duty and usefulness!1 I
notice that there'Is a kind at coldness
coming over you; 'you do'not respond to
that. That, is wuat the Samaritan did,
and he has been doiiur that for the last
1800 VHirs. That is the old theology.
"Fill up your pews: that is the way to
get drawing ministers. Almost any man
can preach well if tlie pews tire full. No
man can preach to a few men scattered
beie and there, that tlo not want any one
to come in and disturb them."
Such principles well laid to heart by
the Christians of Ronnnkc would be
worth all the scimons to be preached in
our city pulpits"to-day. W. II. M.
