TESTING FAME OF FIDE
erv. J. Wesley Hill Takes For H1i
Subject "For Whom Shall
The Prince of Peace and the
Prince of Darkness, the
seen of a Great Eleetloneerlan Contest
eanturles Are and the Trial
Bt. Paul's church was crowded again last
night and the aisles were filled with chairs
and the entrances were blocked. Rev. Mr.
Hill said, in part: Centuries ago. the sum
mit of Carmel was the eceneof a great eleo
tioneering contest between two candidates.
Basl was nominated by the idolotrous
priests, Jehovah by Elijah, the electioneer
ing agent of Reformation. Each party had
a platform, one built out of ignorance, su
perstition and immorality, stained with the
tears and blood of idol worslip, the other
founded upon truth and righteousness, its
altar gleaming with the vestal fire of purity
and peace. When this contest was called,
the Bael party was in power and as a result
of "free trade" in sin and a "high tariff"
levied upon righteousness the furnace fites
of fidelity were extinguished, the wheels of
tuth ceased to whirl, the factories of faith
and manufaotursie of morality were "shut
down," a great famine hovered over the
land, the cry of "hard times" went up from
the people and the shadows of dis
tress encircled the royal palace. So
when Elil. h called for that "mass
meeting" on the brow of Carmel
and "opened the campaign" with the ring
ing challenge, "If the Lord be God, follow
him; if Basl, then fol:ow him," the con
stituents of both parties ahouted back. "It
is well!" and the whole country was stirred
and the multitudes rallied to witness that
religio-political contest and electioneer for
their favorite candidates. That was no
"still campaign;" Elijah. though in the
minority, was on the aggressive, because
he was on the ride of truth; the truth is
always aggressive; and so he proposed that
altars be erected, and that the candidate
who answered by fire in response to the
prayer of the people be elected by acclama
tion. What a test! And the advantage
was all on the she of Bael, for he was the
god of fire, and all of his politicians
laughed in their sleeves and winked signifi
cantly; fraud showed its deformed face.
But never mind, "truth is mighty and will
prevail;" if "crushed to earth it will arise
I wonder which of the political parties
could stand the test of fire to-day, could
climb the elevation of publio vision, bind
its principles to the altar of patriotism and
pray for the God of nations to pour a tor
rent flash of fire upon it to test its hon
esty, its sterling qualities and allegiance
to the truth? "Fire! Fire! Fire!" cried
the Baelites. And my prayer to God to
night is for fire to burn political knavery
into askes, melt the fetters of political
bondsmen, purify the precincts of political
corruption, and with its white flame burn
out the political poison that is permeating
the reins of the government, pVrying upon
the vitals of virtue and sending its cur
rents of death to the nation's heart. In
other words, let the party triumph that can
stand in the sunlight, the princirples pre
dominate that can survive the o uoble and
the candidate be elected who can stand the
testing flame of f:e. Now I wish to call
your attention to a mightier contest than
the one to which we have referred,
one of a spiritual character which
has been raging from Eden down
to this moment between two great
parties, one representing light, the other
darkness; one led on by the prince of t eace,
the other marching beneath the black ban
nor of the "prince of the power of the air."
Now, in the politioal world three great
questions decide the vote of every honest.
Intelligent and patriotic citizen, viz:
"What has the party represented by this
canaidarte done for my country, what is it
doing for my country, and if continued in
power what will it do for the country? Any
man governed by motives beneathn the good
of country, who sets business or religion
before the flag, or casts his vote in any
other name than that of an American eiti
zen is a disgrace to citizenshipaud a traitor
to the government which, iin allegiance, he
is bound to protect with his ballot or defend
with his blood. If it is right to ask these
questions in the political world, they well
may be introduced into this spiritual con
What have these two spiritual candidates
done for humanity, what are they doing ior
humanity. what do they propoce to do in
the future? Lot us for a few minutes ex
amine these candidate. First look at the
leader of the side of sin, "Who goeth iibout
like a roaring lion." What did he do lor
