Says Ilov. C. is. Austin.
EXALTED PLACE FOR AMERICA
lAJTER HID CONCLUSION OF THU
WAR, AND. THE WOULD WILL
RECEIVE A NEW IMPETU8
?FROM TIIH FOUNT OP LIBERTY.
?X CLOSER ALLIANCE WITH THE
^ MOTHER COUNTRY?BUT WHEN
CHRISTIANITY IS SUPREME THE
WORD WILL RUST IN' THE
'At the Vanco Memorial church lad
evening, the pastor, Rev. C, B. Austin,
delivered a timely discourse, hla themo
being, "Hub \Vur Any .Blessings?"
The reverend speaker maintained that
war was followed by certain,beneficial
results to mankind, owing to the chang
ing and betterment of conditions, but
ho discountenanced war except us a last
resort, and hoped for the time when it
would be a lost art..
Rev. Mr. Austin termed war one of
the greatest evils of society, one which
wo would remove if we could. War Is
a last and ilnal necessity, and accepted
^aB;thi last and unavoidable condition.
The shock of arms, however, purifies
the atmosphere, so to speak, of moral
and national degeneration. War Is
made on sin, a man making war on his
soul or self, and If a man can make
war on himself why can he not make
It on Ms neighbor?
Ib these latter days war Is the result
of commercial rivalry. One nation
strives to outdo the other in the acqui
sition of new territory. In thlu manner
they have expended millions and mil
lions ot dollars, building cruisers, torpe
do boats and torpedo destroyers-, until
w?rvhas become an art, and none can
tell where the improved warfare, as to
its deadliness, will end. The European
power? cast jealous and glaring eyes on
each other, and spare no expense to fit
their navies nnd armies with the most
deadly of weapons. I
Bev. Mr. Austin in saying tha\ war
made heroes, remarked that such was
no reasom why nations should war, as
heroes could be developed In times of
pease. Among the excuses given for
war, he said, some one has said that
there are worse calamities than that
"Which come from war, which Is neces
jsary to let shine out occasionally the
growth and vigor of a people.
The United States didn't need any
war at present for its own sake. The
civil war was a dark chapter, but the !
country was beginning to forget it.
There- was a field for men to show their
sterner qualities. New territory*, dis
coveries in science, inventions, and les
sons In beneficence were arousing and
engaging the attention of the people.
The nation wasn't degenerating, but go
ing gradually ahead. But the sense of
humanity was awakened to a condition
of affairs in a neighboring Island, and
the ? national sense of consciousness
burst forth In the effort to give the
light of freedom to an oppressed people,
and Providence was evidently showing
The good results that flow from war
were shown in those which followed the
civil war, which taught the united col
onies that' they were set for human
light, liberty and progress, a nation set
between two oceans, whose time has
come when the purpose of God's eter
nity has been shown for this favored
Jand. And the only misfortune that
: followed the revolutionary war was the
estrangement, or misunderstanding
that came to exist between the daughter
and the mother country, but happily,
En-gland and the United States are
showing a disposition to come back to
gether on the platform they should oc
There would be blessings follow from
: this war with Spain. There will come
a time when they will be shown. Not
the least will be the blessings of lib
erty, and the opportunity will show this
country a truly great nation before the
rest of the world. It will be a prophetic
sight even in the immediate future to
see the Red Cross Society nurses on tho
battlefield, attending the wants of tho
wounded, no matter of which army, a
spectacle which Is prophetic of the time
when there will be no battlefields.
The time will come when there will ,
be no battlefields. It will be when
Christianity rises supreme. Not now, j
while cach nation is training Immense'j
armies, building magnificent fleets, and
costly forts, adopting every invention
to.perfect an invincible army and navy. I
But the time will1 come when the na
tions are keyed to the highest pitch, as
to warring facilities. What then?
Christianity with Its doctrine of peafli^
and righteousness will wipe away all
the armies and navies and bring about
the true and only victory for mankind.

In spit* of the unfavorable weather
Wheeling Park was complimented yes
terday with a, large attendance, many
of the visitors being from abroad, and
all of whom enjoyed the delights that
this resort always affords?rain or
shine. The Opera House, band figured
In Its first park concert of the season,
playing with great fervor and feeling,
and there was, only one number miss
ing, one that would have been so- ap
propriate to the "dewey" occasion,
"Walt Til* the Clouds Roll By.". For
the past two Sundays Manager Rolf
consulted the wcather,craclc? and was
promised the brightest kind of May
sunshine, but" somehow, the .weather
clerk got mixed on his dates; "connon
adlng was hefird off the coast," or the
"Whole Fteet was Sunk," and with the
"Cables Cut'' communication with the
proper meteorological service of the
park was seriously interrupted.
The majority of the excursionists who
arrived in the. city yesterday over the
Ohio River and' Baltimore & Ohio rail
roads braved the clouds and went out
to the park, and well were they repaid.
A better concert has never been given
by the Opera. House organization, un
der the leadership of Prof. Spiel, than
the delightful Instrumentation they
gave from the Casino vferanda yester
day afternoon. Cloudy. skies had no
effect on the*reed and' wind harmony
that was evolved. The following pro
gramme wet? rendered1:

Altogether it was a most enjoyable
afternoon despite the .depressing effect
of the weather. Arrangements are now
making to have the "cut cable" with

absolutely sound. It wus the opinion of
the physicians that ho might have llfed to

THIS IS THE ONLY FORT THAT GAVE DEWEY A FIGHT.'
. This Is a photograph taken before the bombardment of Manila and shows the fort that did the most fighting against
Commodore Dewey. It was this fort that caused his ships' withdrawal for repairs during the engagement. Upon their
return to tlie fight Dewey gave orders that thla fort must be silenced first, and a combined attack upon it was mode
by the squadron. In five minutes there was not a stone left on top of another or one cannon that could be fired. The
destruction of the fort was complete, and the loss of life among the Spanish gunners was terrible, as shell after shell
burst In their midst.
