THE TOPEKA DAILY STATU JOURITAL SATURDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 11,1911. ii I IDA! LJ- SEE THE I a 11 ii1 Weighed and Wanting. The International Sunday School Les son for November 12 Is "Belshazzar's Feast and Fate." Daniel 5. BY WILLIAM T. ELLIS. . " 11 1 1 nni4 ij,H1S is one oi me uiuoi . Tr- most frequently quoted stories In literature. Paint ers and poets and novelists and descriptive writers have oil dnns their utmost to re produce the dramatic scene In the ancient court of Babylon, when a mys tic hand upon the wall wrote the doom of a kingdom. And yet' the last word has not been said. So true to life In all Its larger meanings is this graphic episode that "weighed in the balance and found wanting" Is one of the com monest allusions of cultivated speech. No artistic reproduction of the scene has ever made the facts so real to me as my own recent visit to Babylon. "Sic transit gloria mundi" "So passes tht glory of the world" my mind kept repeating, as I stood on the very spot in the palace of Nebuchadnezzar where rested the throne of Belshazzar, son of IS'abonidus, the usurper to the throne. The German archaeologists at Babylon have excavated the palace and the throne room. Pointing me to an al cove or recess at one side or me freai room, my German friend said. "There la where stood the throne of Belshaz rar. and It was opposite that he saw the handwriting on the wall." Now all is ruin. Even the name of Belshazzar does not remain upon any of the bricks although there are thousands Inscribed with the stamp of Nebuchadnezzar. It is a wonderful spot In which to muse upon the transltoriness of earthly glory. Tender by the temple of Mar duk stood the Tower of Babel, man's vain effort to outwit God. Along the eacred way leading past the temple of Isthar, great triumphal processions passed. Now the archaeologists have to conjecture who was who among gods and kings on this highway of earthly glory. A Drama Well Staged. The episode of the handwriting on the wall came amid psychological sur roundings and at the psychological moment. It was the climax of the kingdom of Babylon. Persia was at the city's gate. Defiant King Belshaz zar held a great carnival of opulence and luxury to which he invited his generals and leading men. All that the extravagance and florid taste of the East could devise to please the senses was there In abundance. It was pleas ure to the point of satiety. To stimulate the Jadedness of the over-indulged appetites of the drunken revellers, the king had brought into the banqueting room the vessels from the temple of the God of the Jews at Jerusalem. There, they praised the mul titudinous gods of Babylonia In con trast with the one God called Jehovah. It was as if the mad carousers would defy this unknown God. He accepted the challenge. Komanee fnder Ground. There are aspects of the story that are difficult for the scholar. Some day we may dig up a further chapter upon It. All over Babylonia the Arabs are finding cuneiform tablets reciting his tory, and the seals which all men were obliged to carry as a signature. As syrioloirists are able to read these. Who knows but that we may one day find t'ie seal of Daniel? Perhaps it is one of those which I have in my possession at the moment! This Is the alluring possibility about the romantic discov eries that are being made in Baby lonia. : God has stored away in the safe de posit vault of mother earth, beneath a perfectly dry climate, these records which should lie idle for thousands of years until. In a fullness of time which eeems now to be coming, they should he brought to the light to attest the truth of the sacred Scriptures. Wise men have learned not to be positive in saving that anything Is untrue in Scripture, when there is a possibility of corroboration from these vaults of history so long and wonderfully sealed. Shocking the Superstitious. A superstitious people were these Babylonians. They were peculiarly susceptible to omens and portents. So when Into the midst of the grandeur of the great feast was projected a spectral hand, writing unknown characters upon the wall, there was a consterna tion which sobered the drunken and the abandoned. Out of nowhere it had come. Before their dazed eyes it traced upon the wall its message. If Jehovah wished to write a warn ing upon the hearts of men he could not do it better than here. Babylon, he It remembered, was the capital of the known world. That throne room, the center of the palace which was the center of the capital, was more nearly the hub of the universe than any spot we can point to at the present day. Whatever happened here would be re ported to the uttermost confines of the existing civilization. The warning of the banqueting hall would be in the possession of all Babylon within a few hours. It was a timely and appro priate place for the admonition of an outraged Jehovah. The king w-as panic stricken. Like a modern European monarch who fled from his capital at the first outbreak of revolution, Belshazzar did not show himself the self-possessed heir of royal character. He was overwhelmed by the handwriting upon the wall. The goet Heine has depicted the scene amid which Belshazzar found himself: "The yelling laughter was hushed, and all Was still as death in the royal hall. And see! And see! on the white wall high The form of a hand went slowly by, And wrote, and wrote, on the broad wall white. Letters of fire, and vanished in night." A Woman to the liescue. Like the self-respecting queen Vashtl, in the story of Esther, the real queen mother of Babylon was absent from these carousals. It lay beneath; her queenly dignity to countenance such dissipation by her presence. Womanlike, when trouble befell, her first thought was to help. The news of the strange horror th'at had come to i l . .- V.all -o .1 liba i 1 . 1 7 .-n Xne UitHVJUCHtJffi iMiu-.m-i through the palace. At once it was nnwn who showed the needed i presence of mind. Her superiority to that of the drunken Belshazzar is ap parent. It is the sober person who has wits for an emereency. There was another person beside the queen mother not present at the feast. This was the aged Daniel. The rich and the mighty may seem to be gath ered In a great carnival of pleasure at lesit JCewnort ergy, but it la to ba re membered that there is a far greater circle of true "good society" that is not enrolled "among those present." Dan iel was not at this feast. He and the young king had little in common so little, indeed, that Belshazzar seems to have forgotten him already; but when needed, he proved to be the man for the hour The Dignity of Daniel. Summoned, the Hebrew sage was implored to read the "Mene, mene, tekel, upharsin," which had come in ghostly letters upon the palace wall. He was promised royal gifts but, with the splendid dignity of a wise man and a patriot, he spurned the gifts, while offering his best service to his liege lord. Then, in kingly, prophetic words he spoke forth the truth for the time, fearing naught, and striving not to please with soft words. He recalled the greatness of Nebuchadnezzar, and how God had lifted him up; but when Nebuchadnezzar's heart had become hardened God, who sits above all thrones, had humbled him. Belshazzar had looked in vain upon the example of Nebuchadnezzar. With far less reason, he had given his heart to haughtiness. Now it was his turn to be admonished by Jehovah. Then came the messaare "Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found want ing." A Mystic Message. Incredibly patient is the Lord of Hosts, yet he must be God. What he permits and endures on the part of mortals almost passes belief. Never theless, he sits on his throne, Judging nations and individuals. There is no greater truth within the compass of man's mind than the sense of ultimate responsibility to the King of kings. History is read blindly unless the read er understands that behind all provi dences and all seeming accidents lie the rmmoses of the Most High. His tory is "His story." "If, drunk with sight of power, we loose Wiid tongues that have not Thee in awe. Such boasting as the Gentiles use; Or lesser breeds without the law Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet. Lest we forget lest we forget!" The echoes of the feasting in Bel shazzar's palace had scarcely ceased before the city fell. The hand that wrote was the hand that smote. Men may not with impunity defy the God of heaven. He still holds in his hands the balances that weigh the souls of men and of nations. The heart-searching message of this lesson is that of ac countability to the Lord Most High. A Shifting Battle-Front. Terse Comments for November 12, "The Case Against the Saloon." Isaiah 6:11-25. BY WILLIAM T. : LLIS. The social and moral welfare of the people has become a national passion. Whatever promises to make the lot of mankind freer, easier and happier, can get a majority vote nowadays. In this era of insurgency, hoary traditions and established institutions have small consideration w!.en they come into conflict with the common weal. With in the-past generation there has grown up a conviction in the minds of a great many persons, and not all of them total abstainers and "temperance cranks," either, that the liquor saloon is a baneful influence in the nation's life. The institution has lost "face." It has everywhere been put on the de fensive; and in many places it has been driven entirely out of business. The verdict of the people, it may in all fairness be written, has come to be that the saloon is a factor that hurts, and not a factor that helps. In our modern social life. The modern temperance battle cry is "The saloon must go!" Christian En deavor has raised the slogan. "A sal oonless nation by 1920!" This is no idle dreaming.or convention resolving. Nobody knows that better than the or ganized liquor interests of the country. But before these purposes can be real ized, there must come an immense growth of the total-abstinence ' senti ment among the people. So long as men want to drink they will find a way to drink. The desire for liquor must disappear before the sale of liquor can be ended. An old-time temperance lecturer used to say, "The first liquor business to be abolished is that which is con ducted about half way between a man's chin and nose." A well-known woman lawyer of Washington, celebrated for her opposi tion to the abolition of the canteen, and her general anti-temperance acti vities, has once more come to public attention. She was recently found living in miserable lodgings, and about to be dispossessed of these. To a reporter she complained bitterly that the brew ing Interests, with whom she had an agreement for a life-income, and whom she had served faithfully, had aband oned her in her old age. Now that she is no longer useful to them, being un able to influence public opinion, she has been cast off. It may be that all of the years of this woman's work for the saloon will be more than offset by her bitter revelation at the close of her life. Even the most biased opponent of the saloon will scarcely claim that it is a social center worthy of the com mon level of American life. Admitted ly, the man who seeks his social inter course In the saloon, steps down from his proper sphere. The Brewers' con vention itself would scarcely care to offer to the world, as typical of the American standard of society and fel lowship, the average saloon. The soda-water fountain Is an American institution the praises of which have not been adequately sung. The old world has nothing like it. American travelers abroad miss it so greatly that in London and Edinburgh, and a few other cities, soda fountains have been opened. There are few "temperance drinks" to be had on the other side; ginger ale, lemonade, which is a bottled drink; and "lemon squash," which is the American lemonade, al most complete the list. The variety and attractiveness of the harmless drinks to be had at the American soda fountain are a marvel to foreign travelers; and they are a real aid to the cause of tem perance. The time-worn argument for the saloon is the license it pays; men with this plea keep silent about tho cost it entails upon a community. All moral and social questions aside, the saloon exacts such a heavy toll for the sup port of police, jails, alms-houses, di vorce courts, orphanages and asylums, that as a business proposition It Is about as sensible as a merchant's re ceiving one dollar from a customer and returning him goods that cost three. The saloon is a mother of crimes and the silent partner of every existing social evil. Extravagance Is taught in the school kept by the saloon keeper. Men spend their money without return; the foolish and vicious "treating habit" is a real evil, learned at the bar, and it has led many men into careless prac tices that have spelled disaster. Thugs and criminals and dissolute persons do not congregate In public libraries, or in schools or lecture halls or homes. Their one universal rendez vous Is the saloon. The viciousness of the saloon aside, it is a prolific source of dissipated time. The evenings spent there are profitless, and reveal a debased con ception of what constitutes a good time. The conversational and social ideals of this "poor man's club" are low; they do not make for culture, Patriotism or righteousness. Home life in our time has many en emies; and one of the worst of them is the saloon. It steals the time and In terest and money of a man which be long to his wife and children.

The First District Federation of Women's Clubs which finished its meeting in Seneca Thursday of last week, enthusiastically declared for equal suffrage at their convention. A Topeka woman, Mrs. William Macfer ran, was elected second vice-president, of the organization for the coming year. Mrs. Harry DeCourcey, of Leav enworth, was made president; Mrs. Best, of Centralia, vice-president; Miss Martha Beck, of Horton, secretary and Mrs. Santer, of Holton, treasurer. The Educational Department of the Equal Suffrage League has arranged for a prize essay contest in the public schools and colleges of the state. The various contests will be open to the pupils of the grade schools, the high schools, and the colleges, and money prizes will be given of sufficient amounts to make the contest a keen one. Judges will select the best essays from each school, send them to county headquarters, where they will be judg ed again, and the best of that collec tion sent to the judges for the con gressional district, and there again, they will be sifted, and the best taken to be Judged for the state prize. The subject of the essays, of course, will be the granting of the elective fran chise to women. The purpose is to spread a knowledge of the suffrage question among the young people of the state, who in turn, will take that interest and information from the school to the fireside; thus "transferr ing the forum from the platform to the home." The plan of the Kansas women seems to be attracting the notice of suffrage workers elsewhere, and the arrangements for the essay contests have already called out a good many inquiries from pupils and parents, and letters have been received by the chair man of the educational committee, Miss Effie Graham, from students in other states, who ask if the contest might not be opened to them also. Mrs. Katherine Houghton Hepburn is conducting a department for be ginners in the Woman's Journal. In one of the recent issues of the paper she has provided a set of reasons why women need to vote. They are: To hedp get for themselves decent working conditions; to protect children from child labor; to get proper pure food laws; to secure better tenement house laws; to combat contagious diseases; to help put an end to the white slave traffic; to make it necessary for the government to consult the woman's point of view in making and enforcing laws; to make it necessary for the gov ernment to use the taxes paid by both men and women, for women's interests as well as men's. A hundred years ago the government of this country was ptimarily concerned with establishing its independence from other nations; today it is primarily concerned with social and Industrial problems which affect the lives of women and children. History proves that governments pay attention to the demands of the peo ple who keep the officials in power, and not the disfranchised class. Votes tor women is a natural and necessary re sult of present-day conditions. The Hutchinson News published an editorial on the California victory fr equal suffrage, which is, in part, as fol lows "The victory for woman suffrage in California means that it will not be long before the ballot will be given to women everywhere in the United States The five states which previous ly took this step were distinctly west ern and new. They were important, but they were not convincing. But here comes California, one of the oldest, richest and largest states of the Union and places the stamp of approval upon the principle which has been regarded as an innovation hardly yet , to be con sidered. No one can now say woman's suffrage is an experiment or that it is being used only in agricultural and frontier states. California is larger than Great Britain or France, includes big cities and varied interests, is not freakish or radical, ana nas a reputa tion ant!' standing throughout the world Whether you like it or not, woman suffrage is coming to pass. The women in six states next year will vote for president. No political party can afford to oppose votes for women with the women in those states casting their ballots.
