Sertnons Heard in Washington Churches Yesterday Rev. Wm. 0. Roome Praises "Go-to-Church" Editor ial in Herald. "Propheciea of the Old Testament' and the New are being fulfilled in our day, in Turkey and the Holy lyaad." the Rev. William O. Roome, it.. de clared yesterday, speaking on "The Eastern Question and the Future Armageddon." at the Emmanuel Episcopal Church. "We do not have to go back to the Old Testament to And prophecies which daily are being fulfilled." Dr. Roome said. "In the Book of Revela tion it is prophesied that the River Euphrates would be dried up at the approach of Armageddon By the Euphrates, I believe, is meant the Ottoman Empire. The late war has been instrumental in bringing about the fulfillment of the prophecy, for God has brought down the great an tagonistic power, arrayed against righteousness and order, and . the Turkish Empire has dried up." Dr. Roome pointed out that no ef fort on the part of man to thwart the will of God was ever successful, and had not triumphed in this instance. "Anything is liable to happen' now, when prophecies relating to the end of the world daily are being revealed." asserted Dr. Roome. "I call upon all Christians to take heed of what is happening in the East today, for. using the words of Christ. 'Ye know not at what hour the Son of Man cometh.'" Dr. Roome concluded his sermon with a commendation of the editorial. "Let** Go to Church Sunday," which appeared in The Washington Hegald Saturday. He said that the article was one which would be appreciated for its value by every pastor in Wash ington. and that the attendance at his church had been materially benefited by it. ARMOUR ASSAILS SENATORS' BILLS Brands Kenyon and Ken drick Measures "Against American Ideals. Stamping the Kenyon and Ken drick bills. proposing licensing of all persons engaged in the meat parking business, as "contrary and out of harmony with American idrals." J. Ogden Armour, president of Armour & Co.. has sent letters to each member of Congress pro tecting against such legislation. Mr. Armour's original letter was addressed to Senator A. J. Gronna. He points out that he believes legis lation of this character is fraught with the gravest injustice and dan ger to the packing industry. The packer makes a point of a recent decision of the minister of agri culture. W. D. S. MacDonald, of Australia, who denied Armour & Co. a license to do business in that country simply because he had pe rused a summary report on the company issued by the Federal Trade Commission. In this ease packers were com pelled to tear down a/foundation laid in Australia for an extensive business, according to Mr. Armour, through "the caprice of a govern ment official holding a temporary appointment." || ALEXANDRIA | THE IlERALD BT'BEAC.
