Government ownership of tlie instmiiients of production Is the chief demand advocated byDauielDe Leon, n KnlghtofLalior, editor of the People, iiationalorgaiiofthcSociallst Labor parly. Sir. De Leon came lo Wash ington on a fljlng tripniid u number of his friends here-, learning ho was to conic, arraiigcilaineetlJlftforhiiuatTji'ogmpliic-al Temple Saturday night. He left the city for New York immediately after the meetin?. ilr. De Leon is a Span'sh-American, in appearance a laboring man, speaks with a foreign accent, bjt Iseiairelynthoineonthe platform, and tells easily and plainly his principles and their basis. He said his party uses the word Socialist In the strict sUcmiric sense. Their puriiose is topat t he men ns of p rod tit tlon.dlst ribulioii and transportation in the hands of the people. He told how man, i merged from the savage stale, first formed a coinmunit where every mnn helped toproduee whatall need. There was a central directive force, lint this was genuinely a working force, helping toproduee thegooilstolieused by all. GOVERNMENT A SACKED TRUST. It was not a usrful appilcalion of energy merely on tlie lips or foresworn politicians, hut in fait. The government wan not a mu red trust in high sounding words only, but actually. From this communal condition man passed to the present Irdlvldual sjslein up on whlih has sprung up tbe State. The chief purpose or the State is lo prc-Nent the masses rrom getting possession of the best means of producing value anil so ki-ep them in slavery to the classes who own them. A Unit etl Slates Senator said here re cently that 98 per cent of the government revenues are spent for the protection of property. For this the armies and navies are maintained. The protection of life no longer requires muib effort in civilized communities. The socialist wants a central power to direct the efforts of all, but he does not want the c-ollectlve energy directed to keeping the control of the means of pro ductlon in the hands of a few. He leates noliody for the central authority to op press. He makes this authority a worker wilti all tho rest in the production of values for tho use of all. To the anarchist, who claims to havo also the purpose to free the laboring mil lions of the world from oppression, be says: "Are you, a musician? Very welL Take jour fiddle aud you can have good music without a director. Bui It jou want an orchestra it Is no longer possible to get along without some central author ity." Now, tbe man who makes everything for himscir makes each thing at a cost of a dollar where by division of labor it may be produced for a cent. DIVISION OF LABOR. Civilization demands division of labor, and this demands organization and a cen tral authority. Without a director musi cians Mould have a Salvation Army pow wow, not an orchestra; without central directive power labor would have a pande monium. The methods of producing the goods we need have on every hand become collect ive, and It Is necessary that the people should own the machinery of production or see a few seize and bold all the excess of value produced. The wav to bring about the reform isbv tbe ballot" It is by this means that all advance has been accomplished since Charles I was beheaded. Men tee the wars and toy these have brought progress, but in fact the ballot preceded the French revo lution, tbe American revolution, the late civil war. By it the reformers got tho guns in their hands and turned them upon the rebels, who refused lo submit to the verdict of the majority. All tbe old parties ha e some right Ideas, but f o far as the liberation and uplifting of tbe masses are concerned their steps are not in advance, but simply movements up and down In the tame place. Republicans want protection for the people, but to long as machines are lobe owned by the few I hey are building their walls with the people outside. The Democrats want free trade, which is right, but they leave theclasses in controls-o that while the workingman can buy now with HO cents whathe formerly paid $1 ror, he has oulv 50 cents to buy with. His master, the capitalist, puts the other EO cents into bis own pocket. WORKINGMEN'S WAGES. Tbe Fopulist wunts money plentiful, but It it becomes so it is only to go Into tho bands of the capitalist. The working man's wages continue to bo the margin of starvation. He only gets or tho in crease enough to keep Iiim alive, nothing to lay by. At the panic time the Increase in money hurts the small owner, who is tbe lalxirer's best friend. The day of socialism is coming. The na tions of Europe are now in the van be cause they rcail more carefully and thor oughly than do the Americans. When American bonds were offered the capital ists, foaght for a chance to bay. Tl.ey do not fight for bonds of European nations. They see that the backs of European workingmen are becoming dangerous places to sit. They see that when Queen Victoria wants to collect her revenues from Pullman the American soldier is at her command, so with revenues for Mrs. Hammersley, Consuelo Vandcrbllt Marlborotigh and the Frlccc of Haltzfeldt. But the American -workingman votes every year, and when once he awakes he will quickly take his place in the lead of the socialist movement. THOSE CEHJIAX EVFOHMEKS.

ONLY A SMALL ATTENDANCE Tlionubt to Be Duo to the He-out ment Cherished by tho Students of How ard diversity on Account 'of tho Dhsniissiil of l'rof. Gn-Rory fSrlov unces AlleKCd liy the l'uplli. President Rankin, of Howard University, preached a fpecial tcrmon. on "The Im provement of opportunities" at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon in the college chapel. It was tbe first of a series of sermons to be delivered by Dr. Kankln at the beginning of tlie academical year. IJr. Itankin read as bis text a part of the tenth ver6cofthesixlhchapteroIUaIlalIans: "As we have opportunity " He began his remarks by saying that man's career de pends both upon himself and upon circum stances. Providence places most young people amid opportunities and these must lie improved. The tide must be taken at the flood. OPPORTUNITIES TO BE IMPROVED. The word opportunity implied thatits duration is limited, am; hence one must seize It while it is here. The Improvement of bis surrounding is what makes a man. The hand of God isgiveu to man just as the opportunity warrants. Tlie exigencies are arranged and prepared by God blni seir. The great rciret of school life, said the president, Islhe Improvement of oppor tunities. A student may multiply his own In such a manner as to open new ones for himself and cause bis teachers to place still others In his way. Failures In life often come from tbe slighting of a single class, the neglect of an opportunity. In Heaven men will be Judged as they have madeusc of the ihaiices thrown by God in thelrway. President Rankin was listened to by an audience of about 150 persons, the ma jority of whom were students. The audi ence filled the cosy Utile chupel to hardly a fourth Its siatlng capacity. There are over 500 students enrolled this year, and ordinarily. It is said, when tlie announce ment has been made that Dr. Rankin would preach a special sermon the chapel would be filled. PROF. GREGORY'S DISMISSAL. Whether this decrease In attendance was due to the feeling that has arisen between the head of the faculty nnd the students over the dropping of Prof. Greg ory, the Latin teacher, is not known. The students treat the president with every mark of deference and respect, but it is apparent that there is a silent feeling lurking in the b'reasts of many. Prof. Gregory is apparently bclovedbyall. He and Prof. Kelly Miller, instructor In mathematics, were the early teachers in the preparatory and college departments, it Is said.wlioareniembersofllowardUniversity alumnae. For this reason above all others theyweredcartothestudenls'hcartsbccause they feel that their preceptors are "of their kidney." Prof. Miller Is still In the university. Before Prof. Gregory was dropped from the faculty Prof. Brownbough was let goata meeting of tho board of trustees last May. He was teacher of elocution and is this year occupying a chair in a Western college. THEIR AFFECTIONUNCHANGED. Trof. Moore, of the University of Penn sylvania, is teaching some of tbe classes taught last year by the two teachers now dropped from tlielist, it issaid. Thestudents conslderhlmagoodLatlnprofeesor.thcysay, but that fact does not diminish their love for Prof. Gregory and the desire to see him reinstated. Some of the students say that the reason Messrs. Gregory and Brownbough were dropped is because they dared oppose at times the orders of President Rankin, who, it Is said, is regarded as oftentimes tyrannical. It Is related that last spring the Eureka Debating Society desired to temporarily change its name to the Doug las Debating Society, in memory of the late distinguished statesman. When the announcement of a meeting of the society was given to tbe president to be read at chapel, it Is said, he told the students that only under tbe old name could tbe society bold Its entertainment. The students say that President Rankin also vigorously opposes a gymnasium, and that the only athletic exercise the stu dents get Is baseball and football In the limited autumn season. THWARTED BY THE PRESIDENT. It ia claimed by some of the students that a petition was circulated among themselves during the summer months with a view to having' Prof, Gregory reinstated. This pe tition was sent to each member of each class affected or to bo affected, at his home and bis or her signature was ob tained. It was then their object to address the petition to the board of trustees at the opening of the school year. It is asserted, though, that there was no meeting then but that Prcfldcnt Rankin haB called for a special meeting ot tbe board in November. The boys say that some of tlie trustees wanted a meeting, bat that I 9 These Cold Mornings What ismore delicious than a cup of Java and Mocha Coffee.

HTMIOATIOX TO GI.OIIY. Rev. Dr. Stnkely's Sermon on tho Experiences of a Christian. "From humiliation to glory," was the theme of Rev. Dr. Stakely's sermon at the First Baptist Church yesterday morn ing. The discourse was divided into three parts, and for each the pastor selected a text from the book of Ephesians, as follows: The past experience ot a Chris tian. "Even when we are dead In sins;" the present experience of a Christian. "He hath quickened us together with Christ, and bath raised nsup together a ndmaketli us sit together with Christ Jesus;" ths future experience ot a Christian, "That in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in Bis kind ness toward us." Among other things. Dr. Stakely said: "Christians are these who have passed out or death Into lire and out of darkness into light. The state, of the soul outside ot Christ is tne state oiiueatn, ana tne axlcctlon and purpose ore away iroru God. There came a time of quickening, when our death was brought in contact with divine life through His whole love and proceeding upon the grounds of His own mercy. God quickened us and took us by the hand and lined us up. Lifting ns up He caused us to sit together in heavenlv grace In Christ. "By this we are to understand that there Is an intimate association between Christ and His people. His life Is their lire. His kingdom is their kingdom. His service is their service, and His glory Is their glory. ...... "The heavenly places do not refer to the future, but to the real present expe rience of a Christian.
