"M" Sun day stepped Into the record breaking class herself Isst night when she made her official Tabernacl "come back"after four weeks Illness In all the ten weeks of the world beat ing revival there has been no such crowd as Jammed and fought and pushed Its waS Into the great pine meeting house, nor In the two months and a half has there been sui h a complete and unstinted outpouring of spplause as "Ma" received when she tripped up to the green topped plat form. Her cheeks were rosy with blushes at the demonstration, and when Itodey handed her a great bouquet of red flowers that the choir had sent down to her she could only smile, then some one started singing -Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow," and that led to more cheering. Flnal- 1. when the applause liad sof:ened, she said in a few words the thing that was in her heart. "I'm most grateful to God that He has let me come back to this dear old Taber nacle and again look Into the faces of the hundreds of thousands of my friends. Oh. I thank you all." Offering Grows Rapidly. There's another record that's about to be smashed at the Tabernacle In fact In another day It will probably go by lie boards, and then New York will have a chance to hang up a bright new one for the rest of the towns In the world to shoot at for generations to come. That's the per sonal free will offerings for Billy, which up to his coming to New York was around 100.000. Probably to morrow at this time this will be an ex-record, for last night A. M.

"As to Germany the United States does not find Itself situated either like England or any of our other European enemies. For the American nation's war is, in the last analysis, only a sort of colonial war, to con duct which energetically against such a mighty antagonist as Germahy a sum total of national sacrifice and a measure of warlike passion will be required for which thus far there has been no tangible Impetus whatever." 5,000REMAINFREE BY AMNESTY ORDER FIRST CONGREGATIONAL. -God On a oolng Errand" Is the subject of the 11 o'clock sermon to morrow at the First Congregational Church by the Rev.

The Cologne Gazette declares It Is "to combat this German Influence that Lord N'orthcllffe and concludes as follows: "It la our Interest to promote as much as possible tne process of re covering their senses which, even ac cording to English witnesses. Is no taklpg place among the Americana to an extent that can no longer be con cealed. If we show them we cannot be bluffed and simply shrug our shoulders over blustering reports about preparations from the United States, American respect for -us will only be Increased. In addition, to such an extent as the system of communi cations permits, there must be simul taneously a campaign of political propaganda. "Any American who is convinced that Germany is conducting a war of aerense and does not think of .nter ferlng with the independence of SJth America or the political Inti'ota rf the United States In Central Ame-i-a is lost for the purpose of the entente. Germany's -Best Allies." The English correspondents at Washington admit that the greatest danger for a decisive conduct of the war In America Ilea In the German propaganda. Our best allies will continue to be, as hitherto, German Americans, their services to the Oerman cause can only be underesti mated by people grossly Ignorant of American conditions by no means seldom the case In Germany. "As good Americana our compatri ots have hitherto not pursued a pol icy of political separation. They therefore do not constitute any na tional group of their own In the po litical life of the ..nlon which Is not a constellation of nationalities. 'J'nelr direct Influence, on the other hand, is all the greater, inasmuch as all classes, professions, political clrclea and other sections of American so ciety are permeated to highest de gree with German-Americans. They Inject Into American public opinion an element of restraint and circum spection which already has often been the cause of embarrassment to Herr Wilson and his English friends. We may be certain they also at this hour are at their post." The article begins aa follows: 'The Imperialistic and capitalistic Interests, which stake all their hopes on a victory for England, naturally are heart and soul In the war and will do everything to whip up the people and popularize the war. One should not underestimate their power. They rule the press and wield a gi gantic Influence at the Capital. The rresldent himself Is whole-heartedly on their side. Enormous Koreen of Resistance. "One must slo not forget, however. that they are confronted by enormous forces of resistance. The American people are Inspired by a deep rooted prejudice sgalnst precisely those capi talists who are the real war zealots. For j ears the people fee! they have been exploited by these classes and only elevated President Wilson and the Democratic Party to power In order to paralyze their Influence. "As soon as the people realize that the war Into which they have been seduced with catch phrases of moral ity is rea'ly a war of these big Inter ests their awakening Is likely to be even more thorough than It already Is. "It is true that the more sensible and broad mssses of the American people have also approved the war, but by no means In order to accom plish the purpose of the American money powers. Proclamation of President Saves 47 in Washington. Forty-seven persons kept from Fed eral prisons by reason of suspended sentences Imposed in the District Supreme Court prior to June 23, 1910, receive the benefit of President Wil son's proclamation granting "full am nesty and pardon' to nearly 0,000 In dividuals throughout the United States whose sentences have not been served. Under a mandate by the United States Supreme Court Issued In De cember last, in the Wllllts case all persons whose sentence had been aus pended by Federal judges would have been sent to penitentiaries today had not the President Intervened. The upper court held that a Federal Judge had no right to suspend sentences. A probation law went Into effect in the District of Columbia on June S5, 1010, so that suspensions of sentences In this Jurisdiction since that date were not affected by the Supreme Court decision. However, from 1907 to 1910 there were forty-seven cases In which there were Illegal stays of executions by the local Justices under the Supreme Court ruling. United States Attorney John E. L-askey furnished a list of the cases and defendanta concerned to the De partment of Justice on February 2 last. In accordance with a request from the Attorney General. Each .case has been Investigated, and each defendant will be permitted to re main at liberty. For obvious reasons the names of the Washlngtonlans will not be made public, but It was said today that no Important cases are Involved In the matter. It was also said that most of the persons receiving leniency have became useful citizens, and that It would be an Injustice to drag their names Into publicity at this late date. President Wilson points out In his proclamation that the Individuals af fected In most Instances have reform ed and become factors In the national life. BANK CLERKS MAKE MERRY Overcast Skies Falls to Affect River Excursionists. Despite the unfavorable weather, the bank clerks excursion to Mar shall Hall yesterday was a great aue cess, more than Mto Junior bankers and their friends participating, and all reported when they returned to the city last night that the day had been one of geunlne enjoyment and recreation. The first boat left the wharf at 10 oclock yesterday morning, but by far the greatest number of clerks went down on a boat which left at 0 o'clock in the evening. This was be cause of the tremendous amount of clerical work in connection with han dling Liberty bond sales In the vari ous banks, clerks were unable to leave their work for the entire day.

PILLING, 1403 Eye St. I jgSLwCjOCXXjuutAAj Editorial from N. Y. Mail of June 12 NO TOTAL PROHIBITION From the movement for war prohibition beer should be omitted. Even if the change is limited to the prohibition of distilled liquors, the result will be de moralizing to great values. If beer also is prohibited, disastrous results will follow, for which the expected benefits cannoCpossibly compensate. " In the brewing industry in 1909, the last year for which we have" official census figures, there were em ployed 62,363 persons, paid over $64,000,000 in wages. Over $670,000,000 capital was invested, in the. industry. Total prohibition would not only do great harm to this capital and these men but would work a small revolution in real estate values. The dependence of national and local bodies on liquor taxes for revenues is well kown. Revenue to be derived from the manufacture and sale of liquor in the coming year, according to the taxes devised in the House, would total $484,000,000. This includes State and local revenues from licenses. These license reve nues in 1913 amounted to $109,000,000. This is not the time when new sources of revenue are easily dis covered. If whisky is prohibited the distilleries can turn to making alcohol. If the breweries are closed there is no recompense to them. If whisky sale stops the dis turbance in tax revenues vypuld be large but not irrep arable. If beer also is prohibited all excise and license revenue stops. If distilled liquors are prohibited 95 per cent of all drunkenness will cease; alcohol in beer can be reduced to 4 per cent. The majority of the people in this country do not want malt liquors prohibited. The intellectuals have no right to force the measure upon the workingmen. Strong opposition to such forcing will develop in Con gress. The workingman's fare is a dull one; beer adds a needed element of flavor and piquancy. It has a definite food value. It is so established in the work ing classes that its prohibition would work real hard ship and cause real discontent. In the brewing industry last year were used 52,000,000 bushels of barley, 15,000,000 bushels of corn and 2,000,000 bushels of ricei Of this total, 35 per cent was returned to the farmers as fodder for cattle. Barley in this country is little used as food for human beings. In so far as its use can be developed, we should use it to eat. But we produce 3,000,000,000 bushels of com, mostly fed to hogs. It takes six bushels of corn thus used to create meat with the food value of one bushel of com used directly. By a very slight decrease in our meat consumption we can set free vast quantities of corn to eat. One of Hoover's first acts will surely be to thus curtail our overcon sumption of meat. The European belligerents, though much harder pressed for grain than we, have not stopped producing beer. There is no economic justification for beer pro hibition here. Against it are strong reasons of public finance and social justice. The world was not made in a year. Human nature cannot be changed overnight. We can sometimes accomplish more by wisely direct ing it than by attempting to dam and thwart it. ifSSli ,&-. .
