I A striking evidence of the military spirit now rampant amo-ne all classes '. was shown by wildlv enthusiastic ap plause with which the troops nnd the floats illustrating Lord Kichenor's vic tory In the Soudan were greeted all alons the route. Another spectacular feature of the procession which came in for much applause, was the float nl legorieally representing the much dis cussed Ansrlo-Saxon union Brittannia and Columbia, the central figures, being surrounded by the British colo nies. At the law courts Sir Faudel Philips, the retiring Lord Mayor extended greet inar to his successor, who. attired in full civic robes, preceded by the recor der and other civic functionaries, pro ceeded to the court of the Lord Chief Justice, where he was received by the judces. attired in scarlet robes and cocked hats. There the usual pre scriled courtesies were exchanged, fol lowing which the procession wended its way to the court of appeals to be received by the master of the rolls and the appeal judges. The return to theOuildhnll was via the strand. Charing Cross, the Victoria Embankment and Queen Victoria St. This portion of the route was elabo rated decorated with flags, bunting. and Venetian masts from trwiny of which floated the Stars and Stripes. Another noticeable fact was the en thusiasm displayed by the crowds whenever the bands played the pop ular American airs.

A Star special from Wilmington, North Carolina, says: "Events have moved rapidly in Wil mington this morning, while people have made good their threats to take vengeance upon the nesrro newspaper which published an editorial deroso ttry to white women. "At 7:30 o'clock the negroes not hav ing responded to the demand of the re moval of the press of the Record, the nesro newspaper. ex-Representative Waddell. chairman of the white com mute of twenty-five, repaired to" the light infantry armory where he was to meet the citizens by appointment. Eight o'clock was the last hour of grace for the nesrroes to reply and that hour passed without an answer being received. The citizens then waited half an hour for reinforcements. Meantime armed men had begun to gather in the wide street in front of the armory. They carried rifles, shotguns and am munition and the assemblage included some of the most solid citizens of the town. At 8:30 o'clock the procession. headed by ex-Representative Waddell and the committee of twenty-five mov ed in the direction of the Record print ing shop. All along the line of march the procession was joined by armed citizens and when the nesrro quarter was reached negroes could be seen a few block away running Into their houses. When the crowd arrived In front of the Record office, a two-story frame building, picket lines were thrown out across the streets and squads of men went to squares in the neighborhood. Leader Waddell, with a rifle on his shoulder, went to the door of the building and knocked, but there being no response the door was burst open. The citizens surged into the place and commenced the work of destruction. The furniture was smash ed and thrown into the streets, the floors were gutted of movables and the building was fired and destroyed." W -TTT... jri eoT DISARMING NEGROES. Washington. Nov. 10. The preserva tion of order is practically vested in the committee of twenty-five, who are now trying to restore order, quiet the situation and hold in check the reck less element among the whites. A rr.pid-fire machine gun on a "waaron. manned by a crew armed with Win chesters, was brought down:in front of the postoffice but on advice of the leaders was halted there. Soon after 11 o'clock word was brought that re inforcements were needed In the negro sections of Brooklyn. The men were sent. Twenty minutes later the new? came that there had been a collison be tween the whites and blacks and thai blood had been shed. As a result of the trouble at Brooklyn, it Is believed that the number of negroes who had been killed will number four. A whiti man named Mayo, who was shot li the stomach, has since died. Anothei white man' was hurt. The situation is quiet at the scene of trouble now. The iicfrroes have gone into their houses Squads of men are now halting all th negroes on the streets and taking thc-ii pistols from them wherever found. WILL CARE FOR EGYPT. London, Nov. 9.

Ferguson, last Sunday Night in the Christian Church. The theme at the Christian church. Lord's day evening, was. "Responsi bilitr Individually and Municipal." On this subject . the pastor said in part: "As -the preface to this address I shall announce some principles that have appeared in the government of Gcd:" "Firstt. God holds men individually and co'llccti rely responsible for eviJs which they were either directly or In directly the cause of. Second: God holds men individually and collectively responsible for the continuanice of evils which they have not done their best to stop and eradi cate. Third God holds men responsible, both individually and collectively, for the d.rwnfall of oiihers by conditions which they couid have removed and did not. Fourth. God holds the minority res ponsible for the conditions and insti tutions of ev:l unless they publicly and repeatedly denounce those conditions and institutions and use their utmost endeavor to eradicate and change them. Fifth. God does not regard a man as innocent of sin because he had no hand in doing the evil. He must exert himself to prevent evil before he can I claim mnocency in the presence of God and man. Sixth. From the foregoing it is clear that it is a principle in the government of God. that I am my brother's keeper that no man liveth to himself, and that I am to consider the interest, charac ter and iiife of my brother as equal to and sacred as my own. and that I am to deny myself for him as readily as I do for myself. The question now is. do we recog nize the government and consider our selves as amenable to him? The history of the dealing of God with the Hebrew people abundantly proves these propositions. As evi dence the case of Achaan. the in troduction of idolatry into Israel, and the final overthrow of the nation, may be cited. Also the answer of Jehovah to Cain when he asked if ha were the keeper of his brother, and the teaching of Paul in Romans 14. Now, in the government of God principles never change; the formulary of principles may he changed to suit the dispensa tion , but the principles themselves remain the same. ' Now, I come to pily these condi tions to existing conditions of to-day. And I single out the liquor traffic, and the forces that produced it and that perpetuate it in our midst It is in this city by the authority of Terri tory and municipality. Not onlv the legislators, but the electors are respon sible for its presence here to-day. And not only these but every citizen who has not raised his voice against it. and done his best to overthrow it. and those who placed it there. It Is nnt enough to say you did not vote for the men who legalized and made Its pres ence here possible, but to acquit your self in the presence of God. you must out and up and work against It as you would the Bubonic plague. Is it any the less dangerous? Testis said. "Fear not them who can destroy the body, but fear him who can destroy both soul and body." This plague, terrible as it is, can only destroy the bodies of our sons, but the saloon will destroy both soul and body. And yet tills trap! this plague, has been legalized in ourj midst. Should any one come into our Bubontc plague, t health officers and' ed in a pest house, but mayspread desolation in' e ana l can get no redress. Aud I say here to-night that our pre sent system of laws that license and" protect the saloons fn entrapping the youth of our 3and and destroying them would disgraiee any age of the world. They wonld disgrace a Nero', a Jezebel or a" Pontius Pilate. You see that jury of gray haired and' bald headed men? They are listening to the evfdence In the case of a ycrang man who committed murder while he was drunk. And they were voters, everv one of them when he was bornV and have been vcwb ever since to per petuate the very IJ&titutlon that made him a murderer amr now they sit with wise heads to condemn him to death for bolns caught in the net that they spread in his pathway. And I want to say here to-night, that every man who votes to perpetuate the saloon, can never consistently -become a Jnror to try anv for-a crime that Inebriety had any hand In causing. Why? Be cause be. too, is involved in the crime. And the Judtre. In selecting the jury, instead of asking them If they read the papers should ask thorn, Have yon, and do you favor the saloon? Oh, thou wise headed Judge, and ye sanc timonious jurors, who sit to try that victim of old Bacchus, and who came up through the pits and slums of death- that your votes placed in bl'5 vou dare to 1t and condH!r aeath?
