Tho Christian minister Is a watchman not only on the walls of Zlon but tho walls of society, and his duty Is to err aloud and spare not, not as n partisan, but as a religious tcachor.ns n defondor of right eousness, and In this sense you can no more separate politics and rolislon than you can sep arate the pattern of a carpet from tho threads which go to form its beauty.

Nor Is this confllct'ono be tween political parties, and In nothing that I iy to-night do I refer to that party which, though not tho one of my choice (perhaps from my early education), lias written many a trand pace in our Anferlcan history nnd can boast of illustrious names nmong its leaders of tho past and names honored In trado and at tho bar nmonc us to-day, lint It In tho eld conflict which lias arisen often in this city between corruption and morality, between vice and truth thu conflict which nrrayed all cood citizens on one side tour years ago. and now, as then, tho enemies of society are marshalled I under n Hob to whoso honored name they have no rlcht. "Look at It. friends, candidly with mo for a moment. Consider our relation as American citizens to tho Government of our country, for the plea that this election has to do only with , the State and not with thn nation is so ridicu lous as to be laughable.

Tho plea is only an at Umpted excuse for cowardice: it Is n very thin veil to hide n spirit or opposition to the Ad ministration nt Washington. The events of the past lew months will read in history as unparalleled in tho annals ot any country for masterly planning and grnnd results, and the story will tw tho military marvel of this cen tury. In the short spaea of 100 days an army of a rjunrtcrof a million of men was organized and enulpped, transportation was provided, campaigns were conducted separated ny 10.000 miles of land nnd water, tho enemy was con quered without a slnglo reverse on our side, anil the actual loss of life by war and sickness was nut a little over 1 per eont.

Tho financial question, upon which wo waged tho conflict of two yoars ago. this iiues tlon which iHonootmornlsaswollasof llnance, of simple honesty as woli as of business pros perity. Is Involved in this election, for tho silver heresy Is not dead. It ls only sleeping, and tho representatives of Congress to bo elected will bo called upon to voto on this fundamental Issue, whoso Importance cannot bo overesti mated. But upon this question tho platform ot one of tho pnrtles in this election Is absolutely silent, nnd this sllonco means onlv consont to what Is both n finan cial error and ii erlmo. It In useless to scok to conceal this sympnthy under an intense In terest In tho canal question In ourown Htnto, n matter which our honored Governor months ngo took stops to Investigate, for nothing can bo plainer than the fact thnt tho framcrs of this platform did not darn toavownn allegiance to high prlnclplo on this subject, and It is a logical conclusion that this sumo cownnllco will characterise, the men'whom they hnvo se lected as their representatives In office. I would far rather trust a bold advocate of tho silver heresy than the man who ls nfrnld to declare Ills opinion. You have a rospect for the one. but you have n contempt for tho other. "There Is another question which has been forced upon us In this contllct. nnd it ls mo mentous nnd solemn: it Is the purity of our Judges, and in this question you nnd I nnd evory man. womnn nnd child in this Htato have tho most profound lntorost. for tho question affects our prODorty. our homos nnd ovory right which Is onrs as frocnicn in this country. Tb net ot the corrupt lender of this party, falsely called Democratic, in seeking to drive from tho Bupremo bench an upright Judgo be cnuso ho refused toi bow to tho dictates of a political organization, has thrilled this community with alnrm and Indignation, for. when th ermlnoof justice lis dclllod.tho very foundations of social ordor nro shaken. Tho Issue is far higher than one of tho com parative merits of candidates. It Is tho question whether our judges nro on tho bench to rendor justlco or to render services, it is not a party question, forjudge Daly Is n Democrat: it is not a sectarian question, for Judgo Daly Inn prominent member of tho ltoman Catholic Church, but for twenty-eight years ho lias won tho respectandconlldcncuof nil honest citizens by tho impartial and consclentlousdischarge of his high duties, and no higher encomium can bo rendered him than tho fact that ho 1ms in curred tho enmity of this unprincipled poli tician who confessed, in tin unguarded moment, thnt the reason of his opposition was that this Judgo refused to consont to tho ap pointment of ono whom he judged to bo unwor thy. Why. consldor for a moment what tho success of this baso conspiracy would infant It would mean that every Judgo on th bench would know that his purity nnd tho adminis tration of justlco mado htm llablo to lose his Sosltlon. nnd It would lead to tho election of udges who were corrupt, llko those who mauy years ngo in tills city wero driven from olllco bynn enraged and determined public opinion. "Let mo glvo you a few passages from tho lllblo on tills subject. In Job. ix 24, wo read: 'The earth Is given into tho hand of tho wick ed: he covereth the faces ot tho Judges there of.' In Zeph, ill., 3. corrupt Judgos ore de scribed as ovoning wolves.' In Mlcah, vll.. 3. following tho, words ' the good man Is porlshed out of tho earth.' wo read 'that they may do evil with botli hands; earnestly tho prince ask eth and tho Judao nsKcth for a reward.' And there is another passage which reads an it it wus written for this very battle with wlckodness; it is in II. Chronicles, xlx.: 'And ho set Judges in tho land through out all the fenced cities of Judah. cltr by city, nnd said to tho Judges: "Take heed what yo do ; tor yo judge not for man, but forthol.ord.who is with you Inthn judgment.'" It Is therefore tho duty of every honest cltiren not only to voto against this iniquitous attack upon tho purity of tho judicial bench of our Mate, but, becauso of this flagrant crlmo. to voto ngninsi inirusung mo interests oi our ue lovcd tstato to tho organization which is con trolled by such an unprincipled leader. " There is ono more feature of this elootlon in which you and 1 have tho doopest Interest, and it Is the question of the morals ot our poo ple lu this city and Htate. It certainly needs no argument to prove to you tho fallacy of seeking as a Church tho overthrow of sin nnd the redemption of man from Immorality, and nt tho same time cast our ballots for those who. for political reasons, will encourago vlco and crime, thus dofeatlns; tha very purpoeK for which all Christian effort Is'put forth. It is, therefore, u self-evident truth thnt just so far as fiolitlcs affect morals, every Christian man and every pulpit bus an interest which can not be ignored, and that silence can mean only moral cowardice. This Is not saying that tho Church looks to tho civil power for moral reclamation, thus shirking hor own responsi bility, nor is it demanding that the law should I prevent sin and by its execution compel tho citizen to be mornl. for this ls not the purpose ot the civil government or tho duty of otirpo lice force. Thore is n personal liberty which cannot be questioned, a liberty oven to do wrong, in which tho individual is responsible only to his God. and becauso you and I believe in a high morality, as wo define it. we must bo very careful, in a great community Ilkoour own, not to infringe upon 'truo individual rights,' our duty being to seek to win others to the knowledconnil iovoofGod.andso to a person al choice ot a righteous llfo. But while this is true and cannot bo too strongly cmphasbeii. the law has a solemn relation to tho morals of a community in protecting virtue, in restrain ing vice, in guarding tho young from evil de signs, nnd In punishing crime und lawlessness. The law ls a policeman, and when it is faith fully executed it ls tho terror of evildoers and the hope and moral strength of a community. "Fouryears ago this city was a carnival of crime four police forco were in open league with tho Immoral and disorderly classes, who, for sums paid to tho officers of the city, were prorated In their violation of the law: and then an outraged people swept our corrupt ofll- ciulH from powor and established in their places men known nnd honored. Wo did not get tho millennium under that reform adminis tration, and wo did not expect It, but we did secure not only cleau streets, but a cleaner city morally. Illegal protection of vice was destroyed, law breakers were driven into their holes, open gambling and iicentiousness ceased to a great extent and our city became safe for onr wives and children to walk Its Btreets. Hut to-day after only six months of the reign of tho organ ization which was defeated lour years ago. wo find an honest Chief of Police removed to glvo place to ono whoso very name revives tho mem ories of former lawlessnes. w And the old system of protectod vice reestablished, we find liousos for Illegal crimes wide open without pollen Interference and a steady increase of liold immorality, and wo are asked by our votes to extend this mlsgovcrnment to our entire Htate, nnd to this ond the criminal classes havo been assessed for money to accomplish this result. " Havo you and I no responsibility In such nn hour, facing such n crisis in tho history of our grand imperial State? Let me glvo to you tho circular published this past week by twelve clergymen on the oast Bide of our city, men representing every sect and whose testimony ought to have convincing wolght with all hon est cltlzenB. One of these clergymen is tho Vfenr of tho ltoman Catholic cathedral, one a Jewish rabbi, and tho otliors are ot Protostant denominations. No sane person can aftlrm that these men wero seeking, for any political reasons, tho triumph of this or that partisan ticket. They say, over their own signatures and from personal Investigation: "According to our observation, the moral 'condition of this section of tho city has boon growing steadily worse during tho last six months. All kinds of vice have been on the In crease, nnd thoso who Druetleo vice uro doluir so flagrantly and openly. Thlscondltlon exists not only at night, when much evil conduct may claim to bo covered by tho cloak of darkness, but goes ou equally unchecked In btoail day light. Wo motest ngulnst tho continued Inactivity of the police authorities, and appeal to tho good citizens of this city to join us In urging upon tho public authorities prompt nnd vigorous action to suppress the evils now dominant In this community. Wo believe that thlscondltlon gives an emphasis to the need of a puro and upright judiciary, whoso members will have no obligation but thnlr high oath of olllco and theirown unrestricted sense of moral obligation. . . ... "I havo thus frankly stated to you somoof tho reasons why this election U of Brent mo ment in Its result to ovory citizen who loves ids city und Btate nnd nation. nnd who desires, nbovo all personolcomfort or gain, tho right eousness and truest prosperity of tho people. Let us cease praying ono way and voting nn othur way. I,ot us be more loyal n the right than to party: lot us always he Chfistlans. acknowledging mi yoke but the yoke of Christ and His prlnclp us. Then on Tuesday wo shall cast our ballot for tho ticket which mfans nn honest htute government, n puio and Independent Judiciary, u stable currency upon which to build up n prosperous trade, n patriotic! Indorsement of our noblo President and of tho hcroibm of our army ami navy nnd an impartial administration of our civil and criminal laws, free from tho shadow oven ot n suspicion of corruption. "May God bloHyou In voting and so bless all of His professed children, thnt instead nf divorcing tho secular life from the religious, they shall in evryact do faithfully Ills will, tho golden thread nf u glnit obedience running through tho entire life of thought, of purpose, and ot outward expression.

Dr. Thompson said in part: "It fa four yenrs since the terrible revela tions of tho Lexow committee. Have wo for gotten that revelation of wickedness and awful Immorality In that great city?

The unblushing and open wickedness of Now York is to-day nothing but sharon and disgrace to ovory mnn living In It. Crokerlsm Is to blnino tor it. Preachers nro not politicians, so wo nro told, hut they nt least ought to bo Prophets, nnd they should cry aloud nnd denounce this shnmo and dishonesty. Thoy should not censo In their work until righteousness takes tho plneoof wickedness nnd virtue and purity put to shame vice and dishonesty. This can only bo dono by dlllgont nnd honest citizens daring to do what Is right, boat what It may. " It Is wrong tooxtend tho reign of Crokerlsm to tho entire Htato of New York. It would bo n shamo nnd a dlsgraco to tho very namo of Americans to hnvo tho roan who turned down Justlco Daly because ho did not. show propor considerations seated In tho Catittol at Albany either in person or hy proxy. It would also bo n crying shnmo nnd n disgrace to extend tho reign ot Croker to our whole publlollfe.

"The Citizenship orJfisus" was the subject of tho Bcrmon which tho Ilev. Dr. David 3. Burrcll preached In tho marblo Collegiate Church yesterday morning. "Looking at tho llfo of Jesus," he said, "let us seo In what wo should believe. First wo should bo In accord with tho underlying principles of government. Jesus was no anarchist, and wo should strtvo to bring the Government within tho parallol lines of our religion. To-night them Is to bo a meeting in one of onr vaudovlllo houses nlmost within a stono's throw of this church, at which all the disreputable eloments ot society nil tho grog-shop keepers nro to bo gathered for tho purpose ot influencing tho coming election. "Are we going to stand asldo and let opinion bo manufactured In such places. Macaulay says that tho worst Government England over had was In tha time of tho Btuarts. when public opinion was manufactured In tho coffee houses, and Dr. Johnson said then that lio would an soon that a, man break ono of his bones an to talk politics to htm. It is men's business to bo Interested In public otTalrs. While such things nre going ou in the vnudevllio houses and In the grug shops, It Is for us to seo to it that thn best possible influenco goes forth' from the sanctuary of tho Lord. "Again we nro to bo In subjection to tha civil authorities. If over there was n man wronged it was Jesus Christ, but He did not resist. For us tho point of resistance to civil law only comes when the civil law conflicts with thn higher law. In tho meantime sub jection and reverence should be yielded to tbo powers that be. And again to co-operato properly with the Government wo must feol ourselves essential factors in it "The throwing of thnt anarchist bomb in Chicago Is not nenrly so ominous ns the fact thnt good citizens sit still while tho laws am being ononlr violated. Your dutv Is to cast your ballot. Jesus could not for Ho belonged tonconquered race, but if He wero hore now Ho would say vote and vote right. You havo only ono voto. but one vote made Cromwell dictator of England, ono voto brought on thu battle of Marathon, ono voto stripped Bpnrtuof all her cherished privileges, one voto elected John Adams President of the United States, ono voto saved Andrew Johnson from impeachment, and one voto snved this country from having Aaron Burr ns President. "There is not only tho direct voto but tho In direct voto to bo considered. Tho unit of citi zenship in this eoAintryls tho household.

District Attornoy Asa Bird Gardiner and other Tnmmony leaders soon domnndod thnt tho warrant bo eAeuUtod Imrr.cllatolr.so as to seo what evidence tho proseoution had. They threatened- Mr. McCullagh with Indlctmont It lie did not executo tho papers at onco. Last Thursday two mon who had registered from tho almshouse wore arrested and held in the Yorkvillo Police Court for trial. This was what tho Tammany men wanted, nnd thoy pre pared to get out a writ ot habeas corpus In be half of tho prisoners In the Sunromn Court. Tho prisoners had boon released on ball, how over, so ft haboas corpus writ could not bn ob tained. Tammany's Law Committee then de cided to take tho case Into tho Supremo Court on certiorari proceedings, and, after the law yore had prepared their case, they notified r.llliu Hoot, who was to appear in behalf of tho prosecution. Whothcrthe Bupromo Court Justice refused toissuotliewtiton tho ovldonco presented by Tammany, or the Tammany lawyers realized tho weakness of their case, is not known to outsiders, but no writ was Issuod. Tho 'Wigwam lawyers than dotormlnod on another plan. It was to have the floater ar rested and hustlo tha complaints before tho Grnnd Jury, in tho expectation that tho mon would bo liberated in tlmotovoto. Thoynp prcclatod tho opportunity when on Saturday Superintendent McCullagh sent several hun dred warrants to Chief of Polleo Devory. Among tho warrants were nbout 1150 for mon who had illegally registered from cheap lodg ing houses nnd from city institutions. Orders wero sent out from Police Head quarters on Saturday night to Capt. lfnsslacher of tho East Twenty-second street station to arrest tho noxt morning the men at Bellevuo Hospital, the .Municipal Lodging House, nnd nt tho Ollvo Tree Inn lodging houso in East Twenty-third strcot. Capt. Dolnney of tho Fifth street stntlon wns ordered to send fifty men to helnCnnt. Hnsslaeher. Cnnt. Ktnin nf tho East I'ifty-tlrst. street station was ordered to arrest tho men in the institutions on Black well's Island. The police of tho East Thirty fifth street station got orders to look after some of tho men at llellev ue Hospital. Tho arrests, for tho most iirt. were quietly mr.de. In ono Instance, however, a short-lived riot followed an attempt to rescue a prisonor. While Policeman Poster of tho Fifth street station vta.s haling n prisoner yesturdnv morn ing from Bellevuo Hospital to the r.nstTweuty second street station, a man named EinilNcu man. apparently mistaking the policeman, who was In plain clothes, for one of JIct'iillagh'H deputies, tried to take tho prisoner mvny from lilm. Tho policeman seized Neumnn and tho two had a tight, during which tho prisoner dodged around tho corner and made his escnpe. Adolph Nouninn. tho rescuer's brother, joined in the light, and thoy were getting the hetterof the cop when Police men Clark and Hill of tho Fifth street station camo along from llullovue with n prisonor each. Thoy let go their prisoners and went to the assistance of Foster. A crowd collected, and some of them took part In the light, whicli dually became, it riot. Tho threo policemen finally got tho Neumnn brothers to tho station houso and later took them to tho Yorkvillo Court. Senator Thomas V. Grady appeared In court as counsel for tho Neumans. nnd Sfngistrate SteadH fined them $5 each. They were unuble to pay and were going downstairs, when Charles P. Dillon. Tammany candidate, for-Assombly In tho Eigh teenth district, paid thoir flnos and told them to go home. The ordinary court penwns unable to hold tno prisoners nrrested for violation ot tho Elec tion law. so they wero distributed about tho va rious anterooms. When theordlnary batch was disposed of these cases were called. The pris oners were brought into the courtroom, and. with a policeman to each man. filled it from tho Magistrate's bench to tho door, while others were still kept in the anterooms. Former Assistant District Attorney Stephon J. O'Haro stepped up bofore Magistrate Mcado on the prlowrH' nrrnignment. Ho was joined by James P. Keating, Coi. mlssioner of High ways and Tammany leader of tho Twentieth Assembly district. Senator Thomas F. Grady and his brother. Assistant District Attorney Grady.and Maurleo F. Holahan, President of the Board of Public Improvements and Tam many leader in tho Twenty-fourth Assembly district, followed. Commissioner of Correction Francis Lantry, Tnmmnny lenderln the Twenty-socond Assem bly district, and Charles P. Dillon, Tammany candidate for Assonibly in tho Eiglitcofh dis trict, triod to get ou tho platform before tho Judge, but thoro wasn't room for all. Superintendent SlcCifilagh.consldorably'flus tored. entered court, and. on getting n chnnco to speak, informed tho Magistrate that tho first intimation ho got of the arrests wnsntU o'clock, when ho was notified to nppoar in court with Ids ovidenco ngninst tho prisoners. Ho said ho had hastened to call up tho depu ties who had procured tho evidence on which tho warrants had boon issued, und thoy wore on thoir way to court and would be there lu a short time. " I will waivo examination and go down town." i esponded Lawyer O'Hnre. " Do you appear for all of the prisoners ?" the Magistrate asked. " Nearly all." was the answer, " Thoro are porno more prisoners coming," said Mr. McCullagh, ' " Let mo consult with Keating," put In 5rr. O'Haro when he heard this. " An ordinary ad ministration would not havo made theso ar rests." After a whispered conversation with Mr. Keating, ho said ho did not think tho com plaints against tho prisoners amounted to much, and that he was confident. tho Grand Jury would dismiss thorn. "The complaints say tho mon were nrrested becauso they were not in tho district thirty days preceding election day." went on Sir. O'Haro. " We hold that those thirty days don't expire until Nov. H. and if thoro was a crime it wouldn't bo committed until Nov. rt. That is. the men nro arrested before the alleged crime Is consummated. I nm sure tho Grand Jury will throw out the caa.es. The evidence lain- Klin1rint " "I believe It Is sufllclont. nnd will hold tho prisoners," answerodthe JIngistrnte. " Well, we'll go downtown then," Sir. 0'IIare said. The Mnglstratn fixed ball In $1,000 for each man. but lowered it to ffiOO nt tho lawyer's re quest, who also asked that tho names ot all the witnesses bo given to lllm. This was dono. " I want thoso cases ready to be presented to tho Grand Jury before 11 o'clock to-morrow morning," Sir. O'Hare continued. " Woil make tho point of insufficient evidence, I want to ask another favor. Will tho papers bo sont down to the District Attorney's ofllce the Hrst thing lu tho morning ?" Tho Magistrate said they would, nnd Mrt Mo Cullngh said he would bu ready with his wit nesses'. Ho wanted to know it ho could have counsel before the Grnnd Jury when the cases wore taken up, sons to explain the evidence. Sir. O'Hare said ha didn't know, but he thought not : tlmt tho only lawyer admitted to theOmml Jury room would be Assistant Dis trict Attorney Grady or somn other assistant. " I'll be rosiionsiblo for tho bondsmen," spoko up Keating. "I'll go ball VlO.OOO worth." voluntoored formor Aldorman Jacob 0. Wund of tho Twen tieth district. "I'll bo nnother bondsman." chimed in Ed ward Chapman of flat) Fast Twenty-eighth street, n Tummanv election district Captain. "Bo will I," put in John Dorr, tho Twenty fourth street liveryman. Bovural other Tammany mon offored to go sureties for tlio prisoners, and tho work of making out tha formal compluiuts and bail bonds began. Keating and O'Hnre watched this work very closely, tor they heard tho court clerk ask a prisoner where he resided and how long he had lived thoro and where he had lived previously, and thoy apparently didn't want the prisoners caught forgottlng how long they had lived in the places thoy hud registered from. Sir, O'Haro warned them to givo only thoir present address, and how long they had lived there. Keating and O'Hnre took care of the prisoners from Bellevuo Hospital, for that is in tho Twentieth Assembly district, Dillon and Lawyer F'rank Dunn took ciro of the prisoners from the Municipal Lodging House and tho other lodging houses In tho Klthteonth dis trict.

The Republicans in Brooklyn will eo to the polls to-morrow with the same solid front as they had two years niro when McKlnluy scored a plurality of nearly 33.000. Bonis of tho cold Democrats, including the raclllatliie Edward II. Shepard and Charles J.

Tho Itepub Ilnan manaeers In Brooklyn havo ovory roason to bo confident that a large part of tho defunct Bhepardlto organization will not only support tho Ilepubllcnn candidate-) for Concrfss. but will also vote for Col. Roosovolt. so as to con tribute a cmshlnc blow to the Cnlkcr-Jre-Lauehlin combination. So substantlpl argu ment, it is generally admitted, has been ad vanced by either Shepard or Patterson to con vinco any fair-minded Independent Democrat that thero Is less peril In tho triumph of this combination this year than In nnyot the threo preceding campaigns. It isicasonablysafo to prodlct that riulte one-halt of tho 11.000 odd Democrats who votod or Shepard for Slayor In lfcS!)5 will bo found marching to tho polls to morrow with tho triumphant Hcpublican forces. As for the 37.000 who stood by Gen. Tracy lost year, thero is not a man among them who is not supporting Col. lloosevelt. To this surn column can be added tha vast mnjorityof the 05,000 supportors ot Setli Low. Tho most ex perienced and observant politicians in Brook lyn, both In the Republican and Democratio camps, believe that Col. Roosevelt will get at least 80 per cent, of tho Low vote, which, added to tho Tracy voto nnd tho Independent Demo cratio vote, would safely placo Kings county In the Republican column. Col.
