THE PITTSBTTHQ DISPATCH, MONDAY, JANUARY 14, 1889.
MaA OBE PROLIFIC TEXT. Several Preachers Take Up the Work of the-Wind in Pittsburg, DRAWING ITS DIVERSE LESSORS. Dr. Holland on the Whirlwind of Bible Times and What It Was Like. OTHER SEEMOXS IX A SIMILAR VEIN The recent disaster in Diamond and "Wood streets furnished an interesting text for several sermons yesterday. Among them cone was more instructive than the one preached at the Bellefield Presbyterian 'Church last evening by Rev. Dr. W. J. Holland, whose text was: "Behold the whirlwind of the Lord; even his fury is gone forth, a sweeping tempest," from Jeremiah xxx, 23. On this subject he discoursed, in substance, as follows: In the scriptures of the Old Testament mo whirlwind is frequently mentioned as a mes senger of violent and sweepinc destruction. Palestine is subject to fiorce Binds, sweepins from the east and southeast, and charced with igrcat power of destruction. The meteoric con "ditions are such as to favor cjeatly the pro ductions of cyclonic movements in tho air. The hot, arid wastes of the Arabian deserts lying to the east ind south, the cold tablelands and snowy mountain tops of Asia Minor to tho north; the one recion encendenne hot currents of air, which, meeting the cooler currents blow ing from the opposite direction, produce ro tary storms of more or less severity. Of the power resident in the air when in mo tion as a storm, we have had impressive illus tntions during the rast week. Two of the cities of this Commonwealth, our own one of them, arc full of mourning to-night, because of the ruin and death wrought by tho winds in their might a rEAitruL rowEE. "As thin as air," we say, and imagine that it is impossible to conceive anything thinner and less substantial, and therefore devoid of power. But this fluid which we call air, made up of about one part of oxygen to four of nitrogen, when set in motion by cosmic forces has a fearful power. The gale which Dlew down that building in our city, and wrecked a great manufactory in Reading and swept away a suspension bridee at Niagara Falls, was a se vere one, no doubt and made memorable be cause there lav in its path structures -which had not strength enough to resist its fury, carrying down to their death a great number of men, women and children and destroyine a vast amount of invested capital. But it furnished no comparison with other gales which havo blown even recentlj; it was not the terrible air motion which the ruin wroucnt would suggest that it was. I: was not a whirlwind or a cyclone in the strict sense of the wcrds. Had it been a cyclone, such as sweep across the Western prairies, the ruin and wrecK wouia nave aouut les been greater. It Is almost impossible to convey in words a scene ot the awful grandeur and ilestroing power which resides in the true cyclone. At the time the village of Irving. Kan., was sw ept away, such was the force of the wind that shingles were driven throngh boards by the blast as bullets are driven into wood by the dis charge of a gun. It is this destroying and deathdealing power of the whirlwind, which causes it to be em ployed b the prophets and psalmists as a typo and emblem of the anger of God against sin. It is the prevalent doctrine of the scriptures that God is angry against sin. and pitted with a hot mdignatiun against iniquity. God is not Imliffeieut to violation of His most holy laws. Men often sink into carelessness because pun ishment is delated: but, sooner or later, they arc doomed TO BE EUDELT AWAKENED from their dream of carnal security. They can not violate God's will with impunity neither the phvsical laws of His universe nor His moral laws. The Bible likens the vengeance of God against sin to the whirlwind. Aro j nu to infer from what I have said that the awful calamity which has befallen some of our lellow-citizens is a revelation of God's aocer against those who have suffered because of the iniquity found in them? By no means! That was the follv of the Jews who came to Pilate; who told him of the Galileans who mingled blood with their sacrifices. Christ re buked them, saung that they were not sinners -above all the Galileans because they suffered such tilings, and added tha words, '"Except ye things come alike to all to the wicked, to the good and to the clean. Dr. Fulton did not believe that God in tended the disaster as a punishment for sins committed by the victims. The acci dent showed the sympathy which is in the human heart, as was indicated by the labors of the people, who worked day and night to alleviate the sufferings ofUhe injured and of many others who contributed money for the assistance of the families of the dead. Hev. MANY LESSONS DRAWN. I.ltchlllcr Delivers n Sermon on the Wood Street Accident. Rev. M. D. Litchliter, of the Liberty Street M. E. Church, delivered an address last evening oh the subject of "Falling AValls, or Mistaken Ideas of Providence." He chose as the text for his address the tail ing of the tower in Siloam. He stated that he wished to correct the impression that a great loss of life is a special judgment of God, visited upon the victims for their wickedness. "We are not to infer from a calamity that the sufferers are guilty above all others. If God was seeking Tor the most guilty in Pittsburg, he would not have de stroyed the lives ol honest workingnien and gentlemanly clerks, but would havestricken down those who are too indolent to work. Continuing, the reverend gentleman said: This world is not a place of retribution. God extends mercy now, but will Impose pun ishment in the future, if we reject the mercy extended. The first lesson to be drawn Is that there is a God. Men give a scientific analysis of the accident; but, after all, above and aronnd it is God. Men need to be impressed with this fact The second lesson to be drawn is what God can do and what He has done, when people are disobedient. Men laugh at religion, yet it is the good people In this world that are saving it from destruction. This was illustrated before the destruction of Sodom. Another lesson is the recklessness and care lessness with which lives as well as other structures are built Men build on sand, and not on the solid rock. They build on sunshine, so that when the storm comes the house is de stroyed. Mis taken idtas of Divine Providencfiareheld. There are two things that the speaker cannot understand. One is the doctrine tbatwhatever is directed will happen, andthe otheris, "what ever is is right" The Divino law and the human law will work together In harmony, but whenever the latter opposes tho former confusion will result. The concluding lesson was the uncertainty of life It was not only the old, but tho young, who were suddenly cut off by this accident RAILROADS AND XAWIERS Interested In n Case Tbat Has Been Do clded Afainst the State.

FOUKD A LONG-LOST FATHER. After a Separation of Over Thirty Years They Will Meet Agnln. rSrECIAL TELEGKAM TO THE DISPATCH. "Washington, January 13. A gentle man who is a well-known resident of this city and a practicing attorney before the several departments of the Government, called upon the chief of the army and navy survivors' division of the pension bureau. Friday last, and asked that the records might be searched for the postoffice address of his father, who had served during the war, first in the Third Ohio volunteers, afterward in the Thirty-third Ohio volun teers. The father and son had met last in 1857, but had kept up a correspondence until 1801, when the father was taken sick and sent to the hospital. The Son, upon application to the "War Department, learned that his father had been mustered out with hisregiment in 1805. After listening to his statement the chief of the division, Major Butts, sent for the files of the Thirty-third Ohio volunteers and found not only the full record Of the father's service, but, to the great joy of the son, his present postoffice address, which is "Warm Springs, Ark. It is to be hoped that a pleasant meeting between father and con will soon take place. THE NEW BISHOPS, repent, ye shall all yet be punished." The Doctor concluded by urging upon his hearers the necessitv of repentance and faith. ONE ABSOLUTE INDEMNITY, And Thnt Penning Alone to the Soul in nn Eternity Wilbont Accidents. Eev. "V. H. Pearee, pastor of the Butler Street Methodist Episcopal Church, preached last evening on "The Calamity and its Lessons." The reverend gentleman, alter referring to the sad accident of last Wednesday, said: Some very unwise and morbid people are saying that this is one of God's judgments, but I don't believe it There are some important lessons which we should give heed to: There is no absolute indemnity from the destrnctivn forces of nature. They arc oftentimes mightier than human invention, and so irresist ible that nothing that man's hands ever erected can stand against them. Then there is no absolute indemnity against the loss of property. A wind, flood, nre, a bad bareain, an unwise or rascally part ner, ur bad habits would sneep all away and leave one penniless. There is likewise no ab solute indemnitv from phvsical danger. Every step taken nuts ns in physical periL My friends, look back at the deaths of those 15 men who lost their lives and those who were injured in the awful crash of Wednesday. When they went out in the morning thev had no more thought of accident than you or I have at this moment There is, however, positive indemnity from the ultimate loss of the soul, and, moreover, ,we leam the power and depth of human sym pathy by this dread calamity. Still further, here we learn of a land without accident or death. A collection amounting to Letween 540 and 550 was taktn up for the benefit of the sufferers. Southern Ohio Episcopalians Anxious to Greet Hev. Dr. Boyd Vincent. rsrrciAi. telegram to tub dispatch.! Columbus, O., January 13. Friday next, at Trinity Church, this city, Rev. Dr. J. M. Kendrick will be consecrated Episco pal Bishop of Arizona and New Mexico. Eight Rev. Bishop Tuttle, of Missouri, will be the consecrating Bishop, and Eight Eev. Nelson S. Rulison.ol Central Pennsylvania, will preach the serriion. Friday of next week, at St Paul's Church, Cincinnati, Eev. Dr. Boyd Vincent, of Pittsburg, will be consecrated assistant Bishop ot this Episcopal diocese. The Episcopal people of Southern Ohio are greetly interested in the coming of their new Bishop. Bishop Jaggar has been ill so long that the need of a permanent head of the church has been sadly felt in this field. Company and the Northeastern Ohio Railroad Company, and the issue of bonds and stocks in accordance with the terms of the reorganiza tion and consolidation agreement to re strain -which a preliminary injunction was granted by the Court of Common Pleas of Dauphin county, at the request of the Attorney General, three weeks ago, came on for hearing before an examiner at Harrisbnrg on Thursday last The Common wealth was represented by Attorney General Killpatrick, assisted by Lyman Gilbert and Robert Snodgrass, Deputy Attorney Generals. The railroad cnmnuivvu TpTresnted bv Hon. Franklin B. Gowan, of Philadelphia, and Edward S. Templeton and Colonel Lewis Walker. attornes. The evidence submitted showed conclusively that the company had complied with all the requirements of the law, except the formal filing of a certificate, and that the value of the property acquired by re organization and Several consolidations was greatly in excess of the proposed issue of bonds and stock, and that no fictitious issue of either stock or bonds had been made, intended nor contemplated. The testimony was so conclusive on the part of the company that the Attorney General stated to the court tbat he was thoroughly sat isfied from the evidence that the company had fully complied with all the requirements of law and aBked the court to dissolve the pre liminaryinjunctions and to dismiss the case, which the court at once ordered. A. H. Steele. President and P. E. McCray, Secretary, at once filed in the office of the Secretaiy of the Commonwealth the formal certificate of the capitalization under the reorganization and consolidation agreements, in addition to the agreements themselves, which were filed at the date of the several meetings, which counsel deemed as full compliance with the acts of consolidation and laws of the States of Penn sylvania and Ohio. This case attracted much attention in rail road and legal circles, as it involved construc tions of lines about which eminent counsel dif fered, and its result would apply to and affect many other roads reorganized since the passage of the act of May 7, 1E77. It is understood that this action affirms the right of the reorgan ized company to issue bonds and stock only to the extent of the indebtedness of its prede cessors and the necessary legal expenses of re organization, and that the actual value for rail' road purposes, as ascertained by competent, disinterested persons, is the proper measure for the issue of bonds and stock for property ac quired under the provisions of the new Consti tution and existing laws.

Lcnk Last Night. The North Avenue M. E. Church in Al legheny was crammed last evening when Dr. T. J. Leak preached a sermon on "The Danger Signal." His text was Ezeklel, xxsiii.: 7, 8 and 9. The substance of which is: "I have set a watchman unto the house of Israel; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand." Dr. Leak spoke of the danger signals from ancient times to the present day, and concluded his sermon by referring to the Wood street disaster. He did not attach any blame to the contractor ot theWilley building, as the text might indicate, but advised his hearers to be prepared for death at all times. THE MOEAL SIDE OP IT.

Calamities are bere for moral ends and moral purposes; apart of God and His divine covem ment. At first clance itappcars harsh, bnt closer in spection will develop its goodness.

Eev. .Tames M. Fulton, of the,Fourth TJ. P. Church, Allegheny, also preached on the great disaster, taking his text from Eccle siastes ix.:l-2. the substance of whirli is that the righteous and the wise and their I works are in the hands of God; that all I Impure Blood Is the cause of Boils, Carbuncles, Pimples, Eczema, and cutaneous erup tions of all kinds. There can be no per manent cure for these complaints until the poison is eliminated from the sys tem. To do this thoroughly, the safest and most effective medicine is Ayer's Sarsaparilla. Give it a trial. "For the past twenty-five years I have sold Ayer's Sarsaparilla. In my opinion, the best remedial agencies for the cure of all diseases arising from im purities of the blood are contaiued in this medicine." .G. C. Brock, Drug gist, Lowell, Mass. "My wife was for a long time a suf ferer from tumors on the neck. Noth ing did her any good until she tried Ayer's Sarsaparilla, two bottles of which made a complete cure." W. S. Martin, Burning Springs, W. Va. "We have sold Ayer's Sarsaparilla here for over thirty years and always recommend it when asked to name the best blood-purifier." W. T.
