Scored by Rev. Joseph Spcera In hi? Sunday Discourse. MANY STRANGE THINGS NOTED KB resulting from the influence of the gospel. whose freachino does not admit of change to suit popular tastes - p r o v i dence. not circumstances. THE CAUSE OF SANTIAGO'S FALL-SECOND PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH CONTRIBUTION TO RED CROSS WORK. A splendid sermon was delivered by the pastor, Rev. Joseph Speers, at the Second Presbyterian church yesterday morning. It was a thoughtful and logical discourse on "The Gospel Brings About 8trange Things," and In Its argument for more dependence- on the gospel contained appropriate and timely references to the war with Spain. During the service a silver offering was , taken for th* benefit of the v\ heeling: auxiliary of the Red Cross Society, and til 05 was received. The sermon delivered by Rev. Mr. 8peers Is well worth reading and It is given below, in substance. His text was as follows: Luke 5:26: "And they were all amazed and were filled with fear; saying, we have seen strange things to-day." The speaker explained the connection of the text and context, showing from Mark's gospel, second chapter, that Jesus was In Capernaum,tcachlngthe peo pie, and a multitude nau gamereu 10 listen to the words of life and light. To the Pharisees and scribes His teaching was profane and when Jesus said to the man with the palay, "Thy Bins are forgiven thee," they looked at each other In holy horror and began to reason,saying "Who Is this which speaketh blasphemies?" But when they saw the sick man at a word rise up and go toward his own house, "they were all amazed." And no wonder, for the word and work of the Lord Jesus Christ was strange to them, who lived and moved ...1 tkalo holnrr nnltf tnr Ihpm Miu iiau wtii wvi.in selves, forgetting what their prophets had foretold, concerning Him who was . to come. These divines had studied the law and the prophets; Abraham was their father; Moses their lawgiver, Aaron their ideal priest, yet none of these had ever dared to forgive sins! No, nor had they been able by a word to heal the sick. While they had studied they had' only looked upon the one side of the question, that which touched Israel alone. God had chosen Israel out of the nations for a purpose. Israel did not fulfill the purpose of God Their captivity In God's purpose In the bondage of Egypt, the Babylonish captivity and their subjugation by the Romans did rot teach them -to know that they were God's husbandmen. They held themselves aloof, wrapping themselves up In the worn out grandeur of a past hls tory. And when a greater than Moses or Aaron or David came they would not or could not understand that God had ? - 1 ? tU,. ruiMnn r\f Toaill PhrlKf. far CUU1C III mo J":*""" v? ?? "?" ~ the fulfillment of prophecy and the turning of the nations of the earth's . righteousness. The Son of God was called a glutton and a wine bibber, a blasphemer, the friend of publicans and sinners, vet when the Pharisees and doctors of the law saw what He did In Capernaum. "They were all smased and glorified God. and were filled with fear, saying, we have seen strange things to-day." Strange only because their eyes were blinded by n sectarianism which could not grasp the length and breadth and height and depth, of the love of God. The law was their delight; their pro vhets. priests and kirns were supreme In their sight, ret here was a Prophet. Priest and King, who spnke as never any spake, who needed not to slaughter bulls and goats to forgive sin, whose power as a physician was supreme, at whose word the sick were made well the blind received their sight, the leprosy disappeared, the lame walked, and the dead arose, and who subdued men to himself and Ailed them as a king by the law of Iovo. 11 was because of these things the Pharisees and doctors of law accused him of blasphemy, nevertheless they were forced by the evl deuce of their owo. eyes ana senses 10 declaro. "We have seen strange things to-day." Is It not true that in this year of our Lord, 1898, there is a tendency to the same disposition, on the part of doctor.* of divinity? And there are n great many so-called doctors who doubt the truth of the gospel, deny the divinity of Christ and who would cast aside about two-thirds of the Bible as unworthy the consideration of their doctorshlps. Sects limiting the mind, will and love of God to themselves on account of some pet scheme on the part or tneir patron aoctor, forgetting what Cod has said, by his servant of old: "By grace are ye saved through faith and that not of yourself It Is the gift of God;" and how they can reconcile their narrow view to the word5 of the seer of Pntmos, where he describes the general assembly and church of the first born, redeemed out of every kindred and nation and tongue and people in more than we can understand. for the love of Clod Is broader than the measure of man's mind; and Jesus said: "I come to seek and save that which was lost." We sing "the whole world was lost In the darkness of sin and for the life of me I cannot see how any man or sect can limit the love <>f fhrUt nmt the mprcv of fiod to one little circle of believers. This in one of the strange things we see to-dny. when the meaning of the gospel Is limited to the creed of ft single sect. This is not whnt the Tllble teaches nor what the majority bellove. and the few seekers after theological notoriety cannot mnke the great mass , of Christians Relieve that Jesus Is not divine or the sacrament of the Lord's upper a divine Institution. That the Itlble Is the revelation of Qod to man for the future la as certain us that the book exist*. There I* a book. "The Aire of Treason," written b** ??no called Payne. That he existed we believe, ulthouffh we never saw him. The book Is the evidence of his existence. You hear men praise the book for Its liberality, and verily Klorlfy him, yet Is th*r* anything In . the work to benefit mankind or uplift humanity? VcrlJy, no! His was the testimony of the writer himself. If It were used as a text book, think you that there would have been n war for humanity'* aake, between the 1'nlted States and Spain? Would you ape a fcoflpltal Kitting on yonder hill, aupported l?y the glfta of our Christian cltlr.eoa?? Would you look for thnt higher education and civilisation which organised the Red Crow Society ivlth lt? manifold blesalnff In tlmen of pence aa well ?b In time of war? Would It encourage u* to take up nn offering today for thin grand and noble work? The gogpel brlnga about atrange things. And we have wi n and heard atrange thing* through the medium of the ffoapel. Yet you have heard people aay In theao day a: "The ffoapel Is very tJreaome and we want eomethlmc new; aomethkig aenaatlonal. entertaining, amualng; and this demand la being ac qulesced In by doctors of divinity, making a new theology In which you cao believe what you like and what you do not like you can cant aside as ao much rubbish, for the literary "crematory." The preacher puta aside the goapel because the people do not want it. although they need It, and he dwells upon the architecture and art of Greece and Rome, or the "new philosophy." and this suits a great many people becauae It does not touch the disease which Is undermining the moral and spiritual life of the world to-day! Yet when sorrow or trouble comes to these same people they turn to the gospel preacher, for the word in all its truth, simplicity, purity and comfort, and thla disposition verifies the truth of our subject for to-day, that "the goepcl brings ahAii* ifranffA thlnura." Cast your mind over the world to-day and mark the Influence of the gospel* of our Lord. It is bringing about strangs things. No longer does the funereal pyre in India smoke with Its widowed victim. Womanhood in the East is being recognized at its true worth, and in all lands the gospel Is being recognized as the power of God unto salvation and no stranger sight la to be seen than the ralvatlon of a man or woman who has been under the power of sin, and by the grace of God. saved through faith in the merits of the Lord Jesus Christ. In all that science or art or literature can show there is no stranger thing seen than the regeneration of a sinner. He is a small edition of the nation to which he belongs, and his life and character affects that nation. He becomes a tower of strength and a great blessing to his country. He has In him the power of the gospel and It is two-fold in Its influence; first, upon his own life and character, and second, upon the life and character of his fellow man. Ia it not amaaing to ua when we read of the converaion and regeneration of Jerry McAuley, the New York thief and Jai! bird; of John B. Goff, the drunken aot, whose name la a household tvord and whose memory a blessing where he labored in the cause of temperance. Aye, these are strange things, but stranger still when the Holy Spirit takes hold upon our own souls and quickena them into a new li?e. Old thinga become diatasteful and we seek only the advancement of Chrlat'a kingdom. We have deplored the war In which we are engaged, but not in all history is there anything like the results which are being brought about. We entered upon the war with the claim "that it was on the principle of civil J 1 lllukpft* In iiTiu reiiBiuuB iiucit/i ii?.ui>.ihw? i? Christian teaching," and which is the ruling spirit of thla great nation, and who can doubt but that it waa the gospel which brought about the surrender of Santiago? Our President, a Christian statesman, asked the people of these United States to pray for the success of our arm*', and the hastening of peace on lost Lord's day. When the people were assembled In their respective places for divine worship, a nation whose God. Is the Lord, lifted up its soul in prayer, and who to-day, after the bloodless victory', can deny the power of prayer? It Is an old saying that prayer is the power that moves the arm that moves the universe, and the prayer of the righteous have availed much and whether men may sor it was "circumstances" which forced the surrender, I believe it was the providence of God which Is bringing about so many strange things to-day, uniting Clirlstlandom In a closer bond, breaking down the oppressor's power, opening the prison doors of nations and preparing the way for the spread of that kinordam whose ruler is Kinir of Klnas and Lord of Lords. Many and great are the strange things which the gospel is bringing about; are they not amaring. brethren? Do they not awaken the spirit of praise to glorify God? Should they not All our souls with fear, lest we, turning away from the truth,should be so blinded that we cannot see the wonderful love and power of God, In saving men for his eternal kingdom? PRESIDENT'S PROCLAMATION Responded to in Services at Catholic Churches Yesterday. At al! the services at the Cathedral yesterday a circular was read, requesting th?k rnnwrvmn.1 Innir tn nffpr nrnvpr* for the American victories recently gained, and- for a prosperous peace.

Similar services to those at the Cathedral were held at the other Cathollo churches In this city, and were la response to the suggestions contained la President McKinley's late Thanksgiving proclamation. GAMBL1NG DENOUNCED. Rev. B. B. Evans, pastor of the Zane street M. E. church, preached to a large audience last evening, on the subject of - uamojing, ana ne uescnoea gamming ?what It is and what it will lead a person to. He said that the first description of gambling recorded In the Bible took place at the crucifixion of Christ, when the crowd took his raiment and ca6t lots for It for the purpose of gain. He said that Rambling was the worst curse that acounrry or nation could have as there was a fascination at the gaming tables that was almost InpOMtble for a person to break away from, and that a gambler never made a good citizen, farmer, mechanic or professional man, as he was doad to everything In the world except the gambling table. Nearly $80,000,000 changed hands every day In this country In gambling In some manner, and ninety-five per cent of the gamblers dltvl In poverty and fill a pauper's grave. ?m WrvTinmtT CUDtlW Al riyuitiii uiuuui.

They mentioned the fact to the Inmates that chicken coops, spring: houses and cellars had been depleted very much of late, and the committee felt that an investigation of the house might solve the mystery. After some parleying the visitors were admitted. . Hess then proceeded to search a cupboard, and bad just opened the door when a revolver sent a bullet Into his hip. None of the searching party saw the shot fired, but they suspected Kennedy's son, Harvey, who Is a young man.

THE CAPITULATION Of Santiago?Tha Si In# Articles Agreed to by the American and Spanish Commissioner!?A Heartbroken Commander. (Copyright, 183S, by the Associated Press.) On Board the Associated Press Dispatch Boat Wanda, OFF JURAGUA, (or Siboney), Saturday, July 16, 7 p. m? via Port Antonio, Jamaica, Sunday, July 17, 5 a. m., and Kingston, 7:15 a. m.?The formal sanction by the Madrid government of the terms of capitulation to-day unravelled the tangled skein of demands and counter demands between the opposing: commanders which threatened yesterday to end the negotiations and compel a return to arms. After numerous conference had resulted in the agreement, already sanctioned by General Blanco, General Toral dediced that the aproval of the Madrid government was necessary before'he would leave the city. General Shafter matntalned that no such aprpoval was necessary;that when General Toral agreed to surrender the province of Santiago and General Blanco sanctioned it, the agreement of surrender became an accomplished fact. He instlsted that General Toral had either surrendered Thursday or acted In bad faith, but documentary evidence bore out the fact that General Toral mentioned' that ho only capitulated subject to his government's approval and the six commissioners 'by whom the articles were signed at 2:10 o'clock yesterday afternoon, so ruled. Articles of Capitulation. The whole matter was cleared up this morning, however, when General Toral received the necessary sanction from Madrid. The agreement consists of nine articles. The first declares that all hostilities shall cease pending: the agreement of final capitulation.Second?That the capitulation Includes all the Spanish forces and the surrender of all war material within the prescribed illmts. Third?The transportation of the troops to Spain at the earliest possible moment, eacfo force to be embarked at the nearest port. Fourth?That the Spanish officers shall retain their side arms, and the enlisted men their personal property. Fifth?That after the final capitulation t hft Srinnlfih forrwi shall assist In the re moval of all obstructions to navigation In Santiago harbor. Sixth?That after the final capitulation the commanding officers shall furnish a complete Inventory of all arms and munitions of war and a roster of all the soldiers in the district. Seventh?That the Spanish general shall be permitted to "take the military archives and rectxrds with him. Wight?'That all guerrillas and Spanish Irregulars shall he permitted to remain in Cuba if they so elect, giving a parole that they will not again take up arms against the United States, unleew properly released from parole. Ninth?That the Spanish forces shall he permitted to march out with all the honors of war. depositing their arms to be disposed of by the United States, in the future, the American commissioners . ? thnla irnvarnmonf fhnf the arms of th* soldiera be returned to those "who so bravely defended them." TJhe articles were signed yewterday afternoon after a four hours session of the commissioners, who agreed that the terms of capitulation should await the sanction of the Madrid government. A Heartbroken t'ommniift?r. General Toral. the wMte-halred commander of the Spanish force? was present throughout the session and appeared to be utterly heart-bn?ken. He spoke bitterly of the fate which compelled him to fitie for peace, but had no word to nay against tho gallant men who had conquered his army. He declared he had little chance to win. "I would not desire to see my worst enemy play with the cards I held," he said to one of the comntfwlonera "Every one of my general* was killed or wounded. I have not a single colonel left and am surrounded by a powerful enemy. We have counted sixty-seven ships off this port. "And besides," he concluded, wearily waving his hand* towards the city, "I have secret troubles there." Speaking of the battle of the 24th of Juno, in which the "Rough Riders" and a part of General Young's command participated. General Toral said that !? ? * than 2.000 Spanish troops were engaged, his loss being 265. He would not say now many ?paniarn? were kuicu ai r?? Caney and before ^Santiago.
