AN INTERESTING PROPOSITION FROM
He Suggests in" International Jubilee to
Celebrate the NlnotCPn tluudredtli ltlrllj

Bry An Interestlni-Scnn.on.
BnooKum, Sept. 24,-rAt Ihe Brookh n
'.(Tabernacle, this iorencxjn. Etov. Dr. Tnl
mago ,ipreacbpd a sermon of unusual in
terest to a ,vast audience, the subject
being "Tho Nineteen Hundredth Anni
versary. A Proposition. Concerning It."
Tho text was taken ,from Isaiah ix, 0.
"To na,acnild is born."
Thatis n rpmendous hoar in tho his
tory of any family "when nn immortal
Bpirit,ia incarnated. Out of av,yery dark
cloud, there descends a very bright morn
inpt. Qpo life spared, anianother given.
All tho bells' of gladness ring over tho
cradle. I know not why any one should
doubt that of old a star pointed down to
tho Saviour's birthplace, for a star of joy
points down to every honorablo nativity.
A new eternity dates from that hour,
Beautiful and appropriate is the cus
tom of celebrating the anniversary of
such an event, and clear on into tho
eighties and tho nineties tho recurrence of
that day of the year in an old man's lifo
causes recognition and moro or less con
gratulation. So also nations aro ac
customed to celebrate the anniversary
of their birth and tho anniversary of
flirt Vilrth at flipir OTAflf. htrnnfl nr fln-
liverers or benefactors. Tho 22d of Feb
ruary and tho 4th of July are never
allowed to pass in our land without
banquet and oration and bell ringing
and cannonade. But all other birthday
anniversaries are tamo compared with
tho Christmas festivity, which celebrates
the birthday described in my text.
Protestant and Catholic and Greek
churches, with all tho power of music
and, garland and procession and doxol
ogy, put the words of my text into na
tional and continental and hemispheric
chorus, "To us a child is born." On
the 25tH of December each year that is
tho themo in St. Paul's and St. Peter's
and St. Mark's and St. Isaac's and all
tho dedicated cathedrals, chapels, meet
ing houses and churches clear round the
Wo shall soon reach, the nineteen
hundreth anniversary of that happiest
event of all time. This century is dy
ing. Only seven moro pulsations, and
its heart will ceaso to beat. The fingers
of many of you will writo it at the head
of your letters and the foot of your im
portant documents, "1000." It will be
a physical and moral sensation unlike
anything elso you havo before experi
enced. Not one hand that wroto "1801"
at the induction of this century will
havo cunning left to writo "1001" at the
induction of another.
The death of ono century and tho birth
of another century will bo sublimo and
suggestive and stupendous beyond all
estimate. To stand by tho grave of ono
century and by the cradle of another
will bo an opportunity such as whole
generations of the world's inhabitants
never experienced. I pray God that there
may be no sickness or casualty to hinder
your arrival at that goal or to hinder
your taking part in tho veledictory of
the departing century and tho salutation
of the new.
But as that season will bo the nine
teen hundredth anniversary of a Sav
iour's birth, I now nominate that a great
international jubilee or exposition be
opened in this cluster of cities by the
seacoast on Christmas day, tho 25th of
December, 1000, to be continued for at
least ono month into the year 1001. This
century 'closing Dec. 81, 1000, and the
now century beginning Jan. 1, 1001,
will it not be time for all nations to
turn aside for a few weeks or months
from everything else and emphasize tho
birth of the greatest being who ever
touched our planet, and could there bo
aiinore appropriate time for tfuch com
memoration than Jhis culmination of
tho centuries which aro dated from his
nativity? You know that all history
dates either from before Christ or after
Christ, from B. C. or A. D. It will be
the year of our Lord 1000 passing into
the year 1001.
We havo had tho Centennial at Phila
delphia, celobrativo of the one hundredth
anniversary of our nation's birth. We
have had the magnificent expositions at
New Orleans and Atlanta ana Augusta
and St. Louis. Wo have tho present
of tho four hundredth anniversary of this
continent's emergence, and thero aro
at least two other great celebrations
promised for this country, and oth
er countries will havo their historic
events to commemorate, but the one
event that has most to do with the wel
fare of all nations ia tho arrival of Jesus
Christ on this planet, and all the enthu
siasm ever witnessed at London or Vien
na or Paris or any(of our American cities
would be eclipsed'by the enthusiam that
would celebrate the ransom of al na
tions, tha first step toward the accom
plishing of it being taken by an infan
tile foot oua winter's night about five
miles from Jerusalem, when the clouds
dropped the angelio cantata, "Glory to
God in tho highest, and on earth peace,
good will to men."
The three or four questions that would
be asked mo concerning this nomination
of time and place I proceed to answer.
Wliat practical use would come of such
international celebration? Answer-Tbe
biggest stride the world overtook to
ward the evangelizatiou of all nations.
That is a grand and wonderful convoca-
11 .U l!mnna rmpTPAS at CuiC&KO.
It will put intelligently before the world
the nature of false religions which have
been Ucutalixing tha nations, tramping
womanhood into the dust, enacting the
horrors of infanticide, kindling funeral
pyrea for ahrieking victims, and rolling
juggernaut across the mangled bodies
ot their worshipers.
Bat no on appose that any one. will
be converted to ChrUt by bearing Con
fnfJnIH or Buddhism or any form of
bMtfeMlmt eulofiwd. That U to be
done afterward. And how can it so well
be dono as by n celebpition of many
weeks of tho birth and character and
achievements of tho wondrous and un
precedented Christ? To such an exposi
tion the kings and queens of the earth
would not send their representatives
they would come themselves.
Tho story of ti Saviour's advent could
not be told without telling the story of
his mission. All the world would say,
"Why this ado, this universal demon
stration?" What a vivid presentation it
Would be, whon at such a convocation
tho physicians of tho world should tell
what Christ had dono for hospitals and
tho assuagement of human pain, and
when Christian lawyers declare what
Christ has done for the establishment of
good laws, and Christian conquerors
should tell what Christ had dono in tho
conquest of nations, and Christian rulers
of the earth would tell what Christ had
dono in the government of earthly do
minions! Thirty days of such celebration would
do moro to tell the world who Christ is
than any 80 years. Not a land on earth
but would hear of it and discuss it. Not
an eyo so dimmed by the superstition of
ages but would see the illumination.
Tho difference of Christ's religion from
all others is that its one way of dissemi
nation is by a simple "telling," not ar
gument, not skillful exegetists, polemics
or the science of theological fisticuffs,
but "telling." "Tell ye the daughter of
Zion, Behold, thy King cometh." "Go
quickly and tell his disciples that he has
rison from tho dead." "Go home to thy
friends and tell them how great things
the Lord hath donu for thee." "When
ho is come, he will tell us all things." A
religion of "telling."
And in what way could all nations so
well bo told that Christ had come as by
such an international emphasizing of his
nativity? All India would cry out about
such an affair, for you know they have
their railroads and telegraphs. "What
is going on in America?" All China
would cry out, "What is that great ex
citement in America?" All the islands
of tho sea would come down to the gang
planks of tho arriving ships and ask,
"What is that they aro celobrating in
America?" It would bo the mightiest
missionary movement the world has ever
seen. It would bo tho turning point in
tho world's destiny. It .would waken
tho slumbering nations with one touch.
Question the Second How would you
have such an international jubilee con
ducted? Answer All arts should be
marshaled, and art in its most attract
ive and impressive shape. First, archi
tecture. While all academies of music,
and all churches, and all great halls
would bo needed, thero should be ono
great auditorium erected to hold Buch
an audience as has never been seen on
any sacred occasion in America.
If Scribonius Curio, at tho cost of a
kingdom, could build the first two vast
amphitheaters, placing them back to
back, holding great audiences for dra
matic representation, and then by won
derful machinery could turn tnem
round with all their audiences in them,
making tho two auditoriums ono amphi
theater, to witness a gladitorial contest,
and Vespasian could construct the Col
iseum with its 80 columns, and its tri
umphs in three orders of Greek archi
tecture, and a capacity to hold 87,000
people seated and 15,000 standing, and
all for purposes of cruelty and sin, can
not our glorious Christianity rear in
honor of our glorious Christ a structure
large enough to hold 50,000 of its wor
shipers? If wo go groping now among t $
ruined amphitheaters of Verona auu
Pompeii and Capua and Puzzuoliaud
Tarraco, and then stand transfixed with
amazement at their immense sweop that
held from 60,000 to 100,000 spectators
gathered for carousal and moral degra
dation, could not Christianity afford
one architectural achievement that
would hold and enthrall its 60,000
Christian disciples? Do you say no
human voice could bo heard throughout
such a building? Ah! then you were
not present when at tho Boston peace
jubilee Parepa easily with her voico en
chanted 60,000 auditors.
And tho time is near at hand when in
theological seminaries, where our young
men are being trained for tho ministry,
the voice will bo developed, and instead
of the mumbling ministers, who speak
with so low a tono you cannot bear unless
you lean forward and hold your hand
behind your ear, and then aro able to
guess the general drift of tho subject and
decide quite well wneiner it uuuun
Moses or Paul or sonio one else instead
of that you will have coining from the
theological seminaries all over tho land
young ministers with voice enough to
command the attention of an audienco
of 60,000 people. That is the reason that
tho Lord gives us two lungs instead of
ono. It is tho Divine way of saying
physiologically, "Be heard!"
That is the reason that the Now Tea
tament in beginning the account of
Christ's sermon on the mount describes
our Lord's plain articulation and re
sound of utterance by saying, "He open
ed his mouth." In that mighty concert
hall and preaching place which I sug
gest for this nineteen hundredth anni
versary let music crown our Lord.
Bring all tho orchestras, all the orato
rios, all tho Philharmonio and Handel
and n&vdn societies.
Then give us iiayans oratorio oi mo
"Creation," for our Lord took part in
universe bnildJng and "without him,"
says John, 'wa not anything made that
was made," and Handel'a "Messiah" and
Beethoven's "Symphonies" and Mendels
sohn's "Elijah," the prophet that typi
fied our Christ and tho grandest compo
sitions of German and English and
American masters, living or dead. All
instruments that can hnm or roll or
whisper or harp or flute or clap or
trumpet or thunder the praise of the
Lord joined to all voices that can chant
or warble or precentor multitudinous
worshipers. What an arousing when
K000 join in "Antioch" or ''Coronation
or "Ariel." rising into halleluiah or .no

who spoke or wrought or Buttered by

vorite of all art"), this art of sculpture,
that it is not busier for Christ or that
its work is not better appreciated? Let
It come forth at that world's jubileo of
tho nativity. Wo want a second Phidias
to do for that new temple what tho first
Phidias did for the Parthenon. Let tho
marble of Carrara como to resurrection
to celebrate our Lord's resurrection. Let
sculptors set up in that auditorium of
Christ's celebration bas-relief and intaglio
descriptive of the battles won for our
holy religion. Where are tho Canovas
of tho nineteenth century? Wheroaro
the American Thorwaldsens and Chan
treys? Hidden somewhere, I warrant
Let sculpture turn that placo into an
other Acropolis, but moro glorious by as
much as our Christ is stronger than their
Hercules, and has moro to do with the
Bea than their Neptune, and raises great
er harvests than their Ceres, and rouses
more musio in the heart of the world
than their Apollo. "Tho gods of tho
heathen are nothing but dumb idols, but
our Lord made tho heavens." In marble
pure as snow celebrate him who came
to make us "whiter thatf snow." Let
tho chisel aa well as pencil and pen be
put down at tho feet of Jesus.
Yea, let painting do its best. Tho for
eign galleries will loan for such a jubileo1
their Madonnas, their Angelos, their
Rubens, their Raphaels, their "Christ
at the Jordan," or "Christ at tho Last
Supper," or "Christ Coming to Judg
ment," or "Christ on the Throne of Uni
versal Dominlou," and our own Morans
will put their pencils into, the nineteen
hundredth anniversary, and our Bier
stadts from sketching "Tho Domes of the
Yosemite" will ,como to present the
domes of tho world conquered for Ini
manueL Added to all this I would havo a floral
decoration on a scale never equaled. Tho
fields and open gardens could not fur
nish it, for it will bo winter, and that
season appropriately chosen, for it was
into tho frosts and desolations of winter
that Christ immigrated when ho camo
to our world. But while tho fields will
bo baro, tho conservatories and hot
houses within 200 miles would gladly
keep the sacred coliseum radiant and
aromatic during all the convocations.
Addod to all let there be banquets,
not liko tho drunken bout at tho Metro
politan Opera Houso, New York, celo
brating tho centennial of Washington's
inauguration, where tho rivers of wine
drowned tho sobriety of 60 many sen
ators and governors apd generals, but a
banquot for tho poor, tho feeding of
scores of thousands of people of a world
in which the majority of tho inhabitant
havo never yet had enough to eat, not
a banquet at which a few favored men
and women of social or political fortune
Bhall sit, but such a banquet as Christ
ordered when he told his servants to "go
out into tho highways and hedges and
compel them to como in." Let tho may
ors of cities and tho governors of states
and tho president of tho United States
proclaim a whole week of legal holiday
at least from Christmas day to New
Added to this let thero ba at that in
ternational moral and religious exposi
tion a mammoth distribution of sacred
literature. Let tho leading ministers of
religion from England, Scotland, Ire
land, Franco, Germany and the world
tako tho pulpits of all those cities and
tell what they know of him whoso birth
wo celobrato. At those convocations lot
vaBt auras of money be raised for
churches, for asylums, for schools, for
colleges, all of which institutions wero
born in tho heart of Christ. On that
day and in that 6oason when Christ gave
himself to the world let tho world givo
itsolf to him.
Why do I proposo Amorica as tho coun
try for this convocation? Because most
Other lands havo a state religion, and
while all forms of religion may bo toler
atod in many landa America is tho only
country on earth whero all evangelical
denominations stand onnn oven footing,
and all would havo equal hearing in 6ucb
an international exposition. Why do I
select this cluster of seacoast cities?
Answer By that time Dec, 23, 1000
theso four citfcs of New York, Brook
lyn, Jersey City and Hoboken, by
bridges and tunnols, will bo practically
ono and with an aggregate population
of about 0,000,000, Consequently no
other part of America will havo such
immensity of population.
Why do I now mako this nomination
of time and place? AnswerBecauso
such a stupendous movement cannot be
extemporized. It will tako seven years
to get ready for such an ovcrtowering
celebration, and the work ought to begin
speedily in churches, in colleges, in leg
islatures, in congresses, in parliaments,
In all styles of national assemblages, and
wo havo no timo to lose. It would tako
threo years to mako o prograramo wor
thy of such a comfng together.
Why do I tako it upon myself to mako
such a nomination of time and place?
Answer Because it eo happens that jn
the mysterious providence of God, born
in a fannhonso and of no royal pr prince
ly descent, tho doors of communication
are open to me every week by the sec
ular and religious printing presses and
have been open to mo every week for
many year, with all the citiea and
towns and neighborhood of Christen
dom, and Indeed in iano uumuo i
Christendom, where printing presses
have been establUhed, and I feel that if
there is anything worthy in thi proposi
tion it will be heeded and adopted. On
thcrtther hand, if it be too sanguino, or
too hopofal. or too impractical, I am euro
i win do no harm that 1 have expressed
it will do no harm that
mv wish for sucii an inwnuinuu.1 jubi
lee, celebraUva of tho birth of our Im-
mMy friends, each a birthday celebra
tion at the Uow of ono century and
reaching into a new century would bo
something in winch heaven and earth
could join. It would not only bo inter
national, but interplanetary, lnterstel
hu,interconstftllation. If you remem
ber what occurred on tho first ChrUtma
night, yon know that It w not a Joy
confined to our world. The choir abo
Bethlehem wu jmportxl fromanotnw
world; nnd when the star left its usual
sphere to designate the birthplace all
astronomy folt tho thrill. If thoro bo
anything true about our religion, it Is
that other world aro sympathetic with
this world and in communication with
it. Tho glorified of heaven would join
In such n celebration. The generations
that todlod to havo tho world for Christ
would tako part in such jubilation and
Tho uppor galleries of God's universe
would applaud tho scene, whether we
Hard u.o clap or their wings and the
f'iont of their voices or uid not hear
them. Prophets t ho predicted tho Mes
li.ih. and apostles who talked with him,
and martyrs who died for him would
tako part in tho Bcono, though tq our
poor eyesight they might bo invisible.
Tho old mise'ouanes who died in the
malarial evci.. of Africa, or were
struck down ly Egyptian typhus, or
wero butchered at Lucknow, or were
slain by BOrnesian cannibals would como
down from their thrones to rejoico that
at last Christ bad been heard of. and so
speedily in all nations. At tho first, roll
of the first overture of tho first day of
that meeting all heaven would cry:
Ayot Aye! I think myself such a vast
procedure as that might hasten our
Lord's coming, nnd that the expectation
of many millions of Christians who be
lieve in the second advent might bo
realized thon at that conjunction of the
nineteenth and twentieth centuries. I
do not Bay it would be, yet who knows
but that our blessed and adored Master,
pleased with such a plan of worldwido
observance, might say concerning this
wandering and rebellious planet, "That
world at last shows a disposition to ap
preciate what I havo dono for it, nnd
with onowavo of my scarred hand I will
bless nnd reclaim and save it,"
That such a celebration of our Lord'
birth, kept up for days nnd months,
would pleaso all tho good of earth and
mightily epoed on the gospel chariot
and pleaso nil the hoavons, saintly,
cherubic, seraphic, nrchangello and di
vine, is beyond question. Oh, get roady
for tho world's greatest festivity! Tuno
your voices for tho world's greatest an
them. Lift tho arches for tho world's
mightiest procession. Let the advancing
standard of tho army of years, which
has luacribed on ono side of it "1000"
and on tho other sido I'IPOJ," linvo also
inscribed on it tho most charming name
of nil tho uuiverso tho namo of Jesus.
Whother this suggestion of n world's
celebration of tho nativity bo taken or
not, it has allowed mo an opportunity in
a somewhat unusual way of expressing
my lovo for tho gTeat central character
of all time and all eternity. Ho, is tho
infinite nonesuch. Tio armies of heaven
drop pn their knees before him. After
Bourdalouo, before overwhelmed au
diences, has preached him, and Milton
in immortal blank Verso has Bung him,
nnd Michael Angelo has glorified tho ceil
ing of tho Vatican with his second com
ing, and martyrs whilo girdled and
canopied with tho flames of tho stako
havo with burning lips Kissed Ms mem
ory, and In tho "hundred and forty and
four thousand" of heaven with feet on
eeas of glnss intcrahot with sunriso, havo
with uplifted and downswung baton,
and sounding cornets, and waving ban
ners, and heaven capturing doxologics
celebrated him, tho story of his loveli
ness, nnd his might, and his beauty, and
Ida grandeur, and his graco, and his in
tercession, and his sacrifice, and of his
birth, and his death will remain untold.
Bo his namo on our lips whilo wo livo,
and when wo dlo after wo havo nppkon
farewell to father and mother and wif,
and child let us speak that name which
is the lullaby of earth and tho transport
Before tho crossing of timo on tho
midnight between Dec, 81, 1000, and tho
1st of January, 1001, mnny of us will bo
gone. Somo of you will hear tho clock
strlko 13 of ono century and an hour
after it hear it Btriko 1 of another cen
tury, "but many of you vill not that
midnight hear either tho stroko of tho
old city clock or of tho old tlmopioco In
tho hallway of tho homestead. Sevon
years cut a wldo swath through tho
churches and communities nnd nations.
But thoso who cross from world to
world before Old Timo in this world
crosses that midnight from century to
century will talk among tho thrones of
tho coming earthly jubileo, and on tho
river bank and in tho houso of many
mansions, uutil all heaven will Ttnow of
tho coming of that celobration, that will
fill the earthly nations with joy and
help augment the nations of heaven.
But whother hero or thero wo will tako
part in the musio and tho banquotiug if
wo havo mado tho Lord our ortlon.
Oh, how I would liko to stand ut my
front door some morning or noon or
night and seo tho sky part and the blessed
Lord descend in person, not ns bo will
como in tho last judgment, with firo and
hail and earthquake, but in aweot ten
derness to pardon all sin, and heal all
wounds, and wipo away all tears, and
feed all hunger, and right all wrongs,
and illuinino all darkness, nnd break all
bondage, and harmonizo all discord.
Some think he will thus come, but about
that coming I make no prophecy, for I
nm not enoughlearncd in thoBcriptnrea,
as Bozno of my friends are, to announce
a very posltlvo opinion.
But thi I do know, that It would be
well for u to have an international and
aniuterworld celebration of the anni
versary of his birthday about the timo of
the birth of the new century, and that it
will le wie beyond all others' wisdom
