Dr. Taimage Draws Lessens
Frrm Paul's Activity.
Ot Usetu:nsss Not Yet Fu?iy
Occupied. Need of More
Workers. The Church
as a Lifeboat.
- * - tv m_ i
In the following sermon uc. i
points to fields of usefulness that are )
not yet thoroughly cultivated and shows
the need of more activity. The te^c is
Romans xv, 20. "Last I should build !
upon another man's foundation."
In laying out the plan of his missionary
tour Paul sought out towns and j
cities which had not yet b?en preached
to. He goes to Corinth, a city famous
for splendor and vioe, and Jerusalem,
where the priesthood and the sanhedrin
were ready to leap with both feet upon
the Christian religion. He feels he j
has especial work to do, and he means
to do it. What was the result? The i
grandest life of usefulness that a man
ever lived We modern Christian work
ers are not apt to imitate Paul. We
build on other people's foundations. If
we erect a church, we prefer to have it
filled with families all of whom have
been pious. Do we gather a Sabbath
school class, we wa:at good bovs and
girls, hair combed, faces washed, manners
attractive. So a church in this
day is apt to be built out of other
chrcuhes Some minister spend- all
their time in fishing in other people's
ponds, and they throw the line into I
that church pond, and they jerk out a
Methodist, and throw the line into an
nmi Krino rttlf. ft

Presbyterian, or there is a religious
row in some neighboring chnrch, and a
whole school of fi3h swim off from that
pond, and we take them all in with one
sweep of the net. What is gained?
Absolutely nothing for the cause of
Christ. What strengthens an army is
new recruits. Wh'le courteous to
those coming from other flocks, we
should build our churches not out of
other churches, but out of the world,
lest we build on another man's fcunda
ja fJiia ie a Viic world.

When in our schoolboy days, we learned
the diameter and circumference of this
planet, we did not learn half. It is
the latitude and longitude and diameter
and circumference of want and woe
and sin that no figures can calculate.
This one spiritual continent of wretchedness
reaches across all zones, and if I
were called to give its sreorgraphical
boundary I wouid say it was bounded
on the north and south ana ease and
west by the great heart of God's syni
pathy and love. Oh, it is a great ^orlo!
Sinoe 6 o'clock this morning 60 800
persons have been born, and all these
multiplied populations are to oe reacnea
by the gospel. InEogIan~> or in our
eastern American cities we are being
much crowded, and an acre of ground
is of great value, but in western America
500 acres is a smsll farm and 20,000
acres is no unusual possession. There
iz z. vast field here and everywhere unoccupied,
plenty of roGm mo;e, not
? building on another man's foundation.
We need as churches to stop bom
barding the old. ironciaa sinners tnat
have been proof against 30 years of
Christian assault. Alas for that church
which lacks the spirit of evangelism,
spending on one chandelier enough to
light 500 souls to glory, andiD one
carved pillar enough to have made a
thousand men "pillars in the house of
our God forever" and doiDg less good
than many a log cabin meeting hou3e
with tallow candles stuck in wooden
sockets and a minister who has never
seen a college and does not know the
* ~ ? . n i i m l
amerence Detween threes ana v>aoctaw.
We need as churches to get into sympathy
with the great outside world and
let them know that none are so broken
hearted or hardly bestead that they
will not be welcomed. ''No!" says
some fastidious Christian. "I don't
like to be crowded in church. Don't
put anyone in my pew."
My brother, what will you do in heaven?
When a great multitude that no
man can number assembles, they will
put 50 in your pew. What are the
' - f - vi.j .v.
select iew locay asseuioieu xu me
Christian churches compared with the
mightier millions outside of ihem?
Many of the churches are like a hospical
that should advertise that its patients
must have nothing worse than toothache
or "runrounds," but no broken
heads, no crashed ankles, no fracturcd
thighs. Give us for treatment moderate
sinners, velvet coated sinners and
sinners with a gloss on. It is as though

put all his work on one aero. He may
raise never so large ears of corn, never
so big heads of wheat he would remain
The church of God has bestowed its
chief care on one acre, and has raised
splendid men and women in that small
inolosure, but the field is the world.
That means North and South America,
Europe, Asia and Africa, and all the
islands of the sea. it is as though
after a great battle there were left 50,000
wounded and dying on the field,
and three surgeons gave all their time
to three patients under their charge.
The major general comes in and says to j
the doctors, "Come out here and see
50,000 dying for lack of surgical atten
dance." "No," say the three doctors,
standing there fanning their patienxs:
4'we have three important cases here,
and we are attending to them, and when
we are not positively busy with their
wounds it takes all our time to keep the
flies off." In this awful battle of sin
and sorrow, where millions have fallen
on millions, do not let us spend all our
time in taking care of a few people,
and when the command comes, "Go
into the world,say practically; "No,
I cannot go; I have here a few choice
cases, and I am busy keeping off the
flies." There are multitudes today who
have never had any Christian worker
look them in the eye and with earnestness
in the accentuation say "come,"'

tb.e kiDgdozn. My friends, religion is J
either a sham or a great reality. If it j
bs a sham, let us disband our churches i
and Christian associations. If it be a j
reality, then great populations are cn j
the way to the bar of God unfitted for
the ordeal. And what are we doing?
In order to reach the multitude of
outsiders we must drop aU technical:
ties out of cur religion. When we talk j
to people about the hypostatic anion [
ana French encyclopedianism and Er-i=tinianism
and Ccmplutensianism, we
are impolitic, and as little understood
as if a physician should talk to an ordi
nary patient about the pericardium and
intercostal muscle and scorbutic symptoms.
Many of us come out of the
theological seminaries so loaded up that
we take the first ten years to show our
people ho* much we know, and the ]
nest ten years to get oar people to s
kn"?w as much as we know, and at the i
end 5cd that neither of us koowr. anything
as we ought to know. Here are :
hundreds of thousands of 3inmng, struggling
and dying people who need to
realize just one thing?that Jesus
Christ came to save them and will save
them now. Bat wegotinto a profound
and ehborate definition of what jaeti
fication is. and after all the work there
are cot outside of the learned profession?,
10,000 people who can teil what
justification is. I will read you the
definitions: "Justification is purely a
forensic act; the act of a judge siting
in toe for-im. in which the Supreme
Ruler aca Judge, who is accountable to
none, and who alone knows the manner
* ? l i* ?r.TT
written over me second aoor, j. .a.u.
mittance;" and, if he goes in, all over
the pew doors seems written. "No Admittance,"
while the minister stands in
the pulpit, hammering out h:3 little
niceties of belief, pounding eut the
technicalities of religion, making pins.
In the most practical, common sense
way, and laying aside the nonessentials
and the hard definitions of religion, go
out on the God given mission, telling
the people what they used and when
and how they can get it.
Comparatively little effort as yet hi?
been made to save that large class of
* - i
J persons m our miast oanea esepuca,
and be" who goes to work here will not
be building upon another man's foundation.
There is a large number of
them They are afraid of us and our
churches, for the reason we do not
know how to treat them. One of this
class met Christ. And hear with wba;
tenderness and pathos and beauty aud
success Christ dealt with him: "Thou
shalt love the Lord thy God with all
thy heart and with all thy soul and
with all thv mind and with all thy
strength. This is the first and great
commandment, and the second is like
UDto it?namely, thou shalt love thy
neighbor as thyself. There is none
other commandment greater than
these." And the scribe said to him.
"Well, master, thou hast said the
truth, for there is one God, and to love
him with all the heart and all the un
derstanding and all the soul and all the
strength is more than whole burnt offerings
and sacrifices." And when
Jesus saw that he answered discreetly
he said unts him, "Thou art not far
from the kingdom of God." So a
skeptic was saved in ene interview.
But few Christian people treat the
skeptic in that way. Instead of taking
hold of him with the gentle hand of
love, we are apt to take him with the
pinchers of ecclesiastioism.
You would not be so rough on that
man if you knew how he lost his faith
in Christianity. I have known m:n
skeptical from the fact that they grew
up in houses where religion was overdone.
Sunday was the most awlul day
in the week. They had religion driven
into them with a trip hammer. They
were surfeited with prayer meetings.
They were stuffed aid choked with
catechisms. They were oftea told t'aat
they were the worst boys the parents
* * Til. ? 3
ever Knew, Decause they used :o riae
down hill better than to read Banyan's
"Pilgrim's Progress." Whenever father
and mother talked of religion, they
drew down the corners of their mouth
and rolled up their eyes. If any one
thiDg will send a boy or girl to ruin^
sooner than another, that is it. If I
had such a father and mother I fear I
ihould have been an infidel.
Others were tripped up by skepticism
from being grievously wronged by some
; man who professed to be a Christian.
| They had a partner in business who
turned out to be a first class scoundrel,
though a professed Christian. Many
years ago they lest all faith by what hap
peced in an oil company which, was
formed amid the petroleum excitement.
The company owned no land, or if they
did there was no sign of oil produced;
but the president of the company was a
Presbyterian elder, and the treasurer
was an Episcopalian vestryman, and one
director was a Methodist class leader
and the other directors prominent mem
hers of Baptist and Congregational
churches. Circulars were gotten out
telling what fabulous prospects opened
before this company. Innocent men and
women who had a little money to invest,
aod that little their all, said, "I
do cot know anything about this com
pany, but so many good men are at the
head of it that it must be excellent,
and taking stock in it must be almost
as good 'a1? joining the church." So
they bought the stock and perhaps re
ceived one dividenea so as to keep tnern
still, bat after a while they found that
the company had reorganized and had a
different president and different treasurer
and different direotors. Other engagements
or ill health had caused the
former officers of the company, with
many regrets, to resign. And all that
the subsciibers of that stock had to
show for their investment was a beautifully
ornamented certificate. Sometimes
that man, looking over his old
papers, comes across that certificate,
and it is so suggestive that he vows he
wants none of the religion that the
president %nd trustees and directors of
that oil company professed.
Of course, their rejection of religion
on such grounds was unphilosophioal
and unwise. I am told that many of
the United State3 army desert every
year, and there are many court martials
every year. Is that anything against
ihe United States government that
swore them in? Ana if a soldier of
Christ deserts, is that anything against
the Christianity which he swore to support
and defend? Kow do you judge
of the currency of a oountry? Ky a
counterfeit bill? Now, you must have
patience with those who have been
swindled by religious pretenders. Live
in the presence of others a grand, honest,
earnest Christian life, that they
may be attracted to the same Saviour
upon whom your hopes depend.
Again, there is a field of usefulness
but little touched, occupied by those J
who are astray in their habits. All |
northern nations, like tnose of 2sorth
Ameri is and England and Scotland?
that is, in the colder climates?are de- 1
vastatcdby alcoholism. They take the
fire to keep up the warmth. In southern
countries, like Arabia and Spain,
the blood is so warm they are not i
tempted to fiery iiquids. The great

^ar, bat under o ir cothern climate th*
temptation to healing srimuian^s is
most mighty, a^d millions succumb.
When a man's habits go wrotg, the
church drops him. the social circle
drops him, good influences drop him,
we ail drop him. Of a!l the men who
get off the track b it fe w ever get on
again. Near my summer residence
there is a life baviag station oa trie
baaeh. There are ali the ropes aad
rockets, the boats, the machinery for
gettTDg people eff shipwrecks. Oae
summer I saw there 15 or 20 men who
were breakfasting after haviog just
escaped with their lives and nothing
more. Up aad down our coast3 are
built these usefui structures, and the
mariners know it, and they feel that if
they are driven into the breakers there
wi:l be apt from shore to come a rescue.
The ohurches of God ought to be so
many life saving stations, not so much
to help those who are ia smjoth waters,
but those who have been shipwrecked.
Come, let u3 run out the lifeboats! Aod
who will maa them? We do not preach
enough to such men; we hive not
enough faioh in their release. Alaa,
if when they come to hear ua we are
laboriouisly trying to show the differ
eQca between sublaparianism and
supralapsarianism, while they have a
hundred vipers of remorse and despair
ooiling around and biting their im mortal
spirits. The ohureh is not chiefly for
goodish sort of men, whose proclivities
are all right and who could get to
heaven praying and eingiag in their
own homes, it is on the beach to help
the drowning. -Those bad cases are
the cases that Goi likes to take hold
of. He can save a big sinner a? well
as a small sinner, and when a man

cans earnestly iu vxuu iur uoiy uc
will go out to deliver such a one. If
it were uocessary, God would coma
down from the sky, followed b? all the
artillery of Leaven and a million angels
with drawn swords. Get one hundred
auch redeemed men in your ohurches
and nothing could stand before them,
for suoh men are generally warm
hearted and enthusiasdo. No form?l

then. No cold conventionalisms then.

Decision Not to Nominate a
Ticket for State
The State Republican convention met
Wednesday in the hall of the heuse of
representatives. For three days prior
to the convention a hot fight has been
waged a3 to the State chairmanship.
Deas, always one of Webster's right
hand men, a colored man led, the fight
and he is on top. He has been made
State chairman, being the first to hold
the place since Robt. Eiliott. The convention
was nearly three hours late in
assembling owing to the fight going on.
^When it was called to order Deas stated
that he had won his battle and the
convention would amount to nothing
more than a ratification of what had
been aacomplished. bach proved to be
the case, and Webster, Tolbert and
other white leaders step aside so far as
this convention and the State organization
are concerned, Small defeating
Wheeler, a white man, for vice chairman.
At 2:20 o'clock the convention was
called to order by State Chairman R
R. Tolbert and the proceedings were
opened with prayer by the Rsv. W. W.
Beckett of the Charleston district.
While the convention cali was being
read by Secretary Johnson, Gran.
Robert Smalls and E. W. Screven

There were in the convention about
twe .ty white men. J. H. Fordham, of
Orangeburg, was made temporary
chairman, and Rev, J. H. Johnson was
eleoted temporay secretary. Tiie tem
porary organ'zation was maae permanent.
Smalls wanted to nominate a
S:aie ticket, but this was not acted on,
and the convention proceeded to nominate
a chairman. Deas was elected by
acclamation, as Smalls said he ought to
be. The white delegates took their
medicine like little men.
J. W. Wheeler of Charleston, a white
man, was nominated for vice chairman,
with quite a blow of eloquence.
Sherman Taylor of Aiken, after walking
up and down for quite a while and
workicg himself up to the proper pitch,
began a speech that was the greatest
ever heard in the old hall. He finally
'"shouted" in his excitement and ran a
foot race with himself up and down the
floor. He nominated llobt. Smalls and '
sank, some say, into uncoD3ciouaes3
from over exhaustion. Hs pointed to the
portrait of Ben Tillman and fairly
screamed. None could understand wha*
he said.
A roil call vote was taken and Sma'ils
was elected by a vote of 58 to 47.
The election was about to be made '
unanimous, but there being opposition,
Geo. 1 Cunningham wanting the vote
to stand as it was, Smalls said he appreciated
this vote more than any ho
had ever received in this State.
The con7ention then proceeded to 1
elect nominees for two members of the
State executive committee from the
State at large.
D?as nominated R. R. Tolbert and
E. A. Webster and they were elected. <
Then there was a great racket, many
protesting against the way the members
from the State-at-large were elect
ed. Smalls said "that wont't do, I believe
we can whip Webster, and I want
to *kin hicc aiive."
Dead got a nntion rushed through
then to L.Ave the convention divide into
districts and select other members?
three from e3ch district. This was
done, while Smalls, Paiv's and others
w<~e vigorously k'ckiDg against the
election of Tolbert and Webster.

Dias then stated that the convention
had been in sefsion de facto since the
last evening at 7 o'clock. He thoreupon
moved to leave the selection of the nine
presidential electors to the State executive
Gen. Smalls hoped that the motion
would not prevail. They had 124 men
here who had come here to name these
electors. Were they incompetent? Did
they have to leave it to 25 creatures of
the conveniionb. Who could they ex
pect to vote for a ticket they could
not nominate? He regretted that the
motion came from the State chairman.
They should nominate the ticket themselves.
There were men all over the
country who were willing to vote for
the ticket. He would advocate the
nomination of an entire State ticket.
(Applause ) Put them up and let them
down if they would. They had on the
statute books the most infamou3 1 iw
ever known and the administration of
it was wor-e than the law. Ic was best
to show the people of the north and
east that they were being counted out.
Tillman would say, if they named no
ticket that the people were satitfi ,'d
with the law. _ The Democratic pavtv
don't respect a quiescent Republican.
There were plenty in the party to say
on the outside "I'm a southern Demo

right. Gen. Smalls said ha had called
the first gathering of the Republicans
ever held in the State. He did cot
want the partv disbanded in this way.
Couldn't they find nine men out ef office
for elector. He had spoken a
week ago of the disfranchisement on
the same platform with Roosevelt. Hid
they hired Ben Tillman and sent him
out they could not have done the Rspulicaa
party more good. If South
Carolina continued to defraud them of
their^vote the day would soon come
when South Carolina would have one
instead of seven congressmen. No
man loved his State better than he did.
He came to the^ State aeainst his will.
(Applause.) When McKinley is elected
there will be white men by the huadreds
knocking at the door of the party
to pet in.
A motion to table the motion of Deas
The convention then proceeded to
elect electors. Dickerson impressed^
upon them the necessity for putting
out a strong electoral ticket. They
wanted a ticket that would get the
A committee cf nine to select elec
tors and report them to the convention
was aked for.
Murray wanted the convention to
elect the two members at large and the
delegations from the districts get to
gether and name the others. Murray^s
idea prevailed.
Chirman Dea* then nominated Dr.
Crum and L. W. C. Blalock as the two
electors at large. They were elected
The other electors were named as follows:
First?Geo. Holmes, Beaufort.
Second?T A. OJom, EdgeSeld.
Third?J. W. Tolberfc, Ninety-Six.
Fourth?H H. Felton, (ffhite )
Fifth?11 P. Roberts, Cherokee.
Sixth?M. K. Holloway, Marion.
Seventh?Geo. W. Murray, Samter.
Gen. Smalls then moved to proceed
with the nomination of a full State
Deas moved to lay the motion on the
table as a piece "of absolute foolishcess/'
but later withdrew the motion.
Gen. Smalls then moved that a oofumictee
be appointed io name a full
State ticket or report the reasons why
it should not be namedBoykin
moved that Smalls be nominated
governor, and moved to lay the
motion on the table.

Dickerson wanted a few words sent
to the people of the north. He said
some colored man north bad said that
Republican success meant no more
than Democratic success. In the north
they had gone to the Democratic party.
All these had been sent back to the
Republican party by the race trouble
rccectly in JSew York. He would ad
vise them to go to McKinley. Bryan
represented a certain class of men in
this State from whom they had nothinctn
pvnpnt Those who were in the

north should vote for McKinley.
The committee on nominations then
reported 33 follows through Gen.
"The committee on nominations for
a Srate ticket beg leave to report that
they have considered the expediency of
placiDg a State ticket in the field, and
after careful consideration, they are
unanimously of the opinion that it
would be impracticable and inadvisable
at this time to make nominations
for State officers in view of the fact
that the present unjast and unfair registration
and election laws practically
disfranchise nine-tenths of the Republican
voters of this State."
The convention then adopted the
u3ual resolution of thanks to its officers,
and the new list of county chair> *-???

in the New York Times, Gen, Butler is
quoted as follows:
"The Southhas never been so pros-perous
at any times since the civil war
as it is today, and I thick that this
gratifying condition of affairs is due
principally to the high prices at present
being paid for cotton. I believe, fur

continue it will only be a short time ]
till the South is throughly on her feet
again. In saying this Idonot epeak (

which are dui to the domination of j

rebuked by the people south of Mason
