BIBLE' LA )S IN WO T I, THE FOURTH SERMON OF DR. TAL MAGE'S ITINERARY SERIES. The Brook of Chvrit1h, the Good Saain%ri #ain, the Ramn's H1ornA of Jericlho, an(I Ma1t y Other Inspiring Scenes ul Themes.-The Fountain of Elisha. BhooKLYN, OCt. 19.-The widespread and absorbing interest in Dr. Tal mage's courie uf sermons on the Holy c Land and adjo'ning countries is de- I monstrated by the thousands who are turned away from the doors of the C Brooklyn Academy of Music on Sun- I day mornings, and The Christian eir- 3 ald services in the New York Acadeiiy of Music on Sunday eveniLgs, unable to gain even standing room in those r iminense auditoriums. To-day the i fourth sermon of t.he series was preach ad as before, in this city in the morn- t ing and in New York at night. Ilav- d ing announced as his text Luke x. 30: e t ''A certain wan went down from Jeruialeni to Jericho," Dr. Talmage v said: a It Is the morning of December 5 In s -Jerusalemn, and we take stirrups for . the road along which the wayfarer of old fell amiong, t hieves who left him : wounded at;di half dead. Joh's picttire ' of the hore in the orient as having r neck "clothed with thunder" is riot true of most horses now in Palestine. , There is no thuinder onl their neeks, hough t hei is some lightning in their heels. Poorly fed and unmercifully y whacked, they sometimes retort. 'I'o Americans aind English, who are ac Custoied to guide horses by I lie bridle, these horses of the orient, glidd only by foot arid vier, imake equtestrianisin art uncertaint., and the pull On the bridle that you Inten( for slowing up of the pace rmay be mistaken for a hint P that you want to outgallop the wind or wheel in %vift eireh-s I kv the hawk. But they ean elimb steps aid descend a precipices with skilled foot, and the i one I choso for our journey in Pales tine shall have the praise ot going for weeks without one stumbling step ( anid rocky steeps, where an ordinary t hoise would not for an lur maintain a! surefootedness. There were eighteen k of our part\, nid twenty-two beasts of hurden carried our camp equipment. We are led by m, Arab sheik, with his black Nubian servant carrying a load- ' ed gun in full -ight, but it is the fact " that this sheik represents the Turkish government which assures the safety 1 of the caravan. t < "11E TELL AMONO TIIIEIEs." 1 We cross the Jehoshaphat valley, which, if it had not been memorablein i history and were only now discovered, would excite the admiration of all who look upon it. It is like the gorges of the Yosemite or the cha4ns of the Yel- t lowstone park. The sides of this Jehos- 2 haphat valley Are tunneled with graves and overlooked by Jertusalem walls-an eternity of depths overshadowed by an P eternity of arclitecture. Within sight P of J\Iount Oiivut and Gethsenane and P with the heavens and the earth full of el sunshine, we start out on the very road mentioned in the text when it says : "A certain majn went down from Jeru salem to Jericho and fell among ti thieves." No road that I ever saw was 8 so well constructed for brigandage- 01 dbep gulleys, sharp turns, caves on ti either side. There are fifty places on h1 this road where a highwayman might t surprise and overpower an unarmed 80 pilgrim. Ilis cry for help, his shriek L of pain, his death groan would be ans- a wered only by the echoes. On this road s to-day we met groups of men who i jud ging from their countenances have in their veinsthe blood of many genera-s tions of Rob. Roys. Josephus says that Ilerod at one time discharged from the' service of the temple forty thousandl t! mlen, andl t hat the great part of them a became robbers. So late as 1820 Sir u Frederick Ihenniker, an English tour- " ists, was attacd on this very road h from ,Jeruir:dem to .Jericho arid shot ti arid almost slain. TIhmere has never Si becen any saercity of bandita airing the l( road we travel to-day:g With the fresh memory of some re a cent violence In their miindIs Clhrist tells a the people of the good Samaritan who s' came along that way and( too0k care of 'I a poor fellow that had been set upon1 s by v'illainous Arabs and robbed and (1 pioundled andl (it. We encarutped tor il lunch that noon close by an old stone a building, said to lbe the tavern where the scene spoken of in thle Bible culmi nated(. ''Tumle. I in the (dust. and ghast- u ly with wounds the victimo of this high--t way robbery lay in ihe milddle of the j' road-a fact of which I am~ certain be-. u catuse the Bible says the pe'ople p)assed el lby on1 either sidet. Thiere were 12,000 C, priests living at ,Jericeho, arid they had si .to go to Jerusalem to ofliciate at tihe o temple. Anad one of t hiese miisters of 0 religion, I suplpose', was on his way to ti thme teniple service, and lie is startled as a lie sees this bleedinag v'ictimIi in the mid. ii dlIe of the road. "Oh," he says, "here is ti a man that has beeni att acked of thieves, a Why don't you go hiomie?" says the i-S miniister.The man, in a comatosem state, il makesano answer, or, with a half daz/ed a look, puts his wounided hand to hiIs ii gashed forehead and( dIrawls out u' "What?" "Well," says the minister, "i tl must hurry on to my (duties at ,Ieriusat- I lemn. I have to kill ia lamb and two b pigeons in snei ifice to-day. I canniot ' spend any more time .vit.h this unfor- V tunate. 1 guess somri one else will take t -care of him. But this is one of theb thlings that canmot be helped, anyhow, 'l Besice that, mybusiness is with souls t and not with bodies. Good morning! e WVhen you get wvell enough to sit tip 1 n -i'll be glad to see you at the temple." .a 'FIlE NEOLECTFUL PRIEST.i And the minister curves his way outI towardl the overhanging sides of the a -roaud and passes. You hypocrite! One ti of the chief zillees of religion is to heal tl wouinds. 'T ou might have (lone here a f' k'udness that would have been more e eptable to God than all the incense a .tat will smoke tip from your censor d for the next three weeks, and you miss- nl ed the chance. Go on your way--exe- ti cratedl by the centuries. Soon after ward a LeyIte came upon n thie scenie. Thle Levites looked after ti the music or the temple and waited v upon01 the pr ests and providled the sup- ti lplies of the temple. This Levite, pass- al lng along this road where we are today g took a look at the mass of bruises and n aceration inl tne milit or te road. My! my!" says the Levite, "this man s awfully hurt and he ought to be ielped. But my business is to sing in he choir at the temple. If I am not here no one will carry my part. Be ides that there. may not Le enough rankincense for the censors and the vine or oil may have given out, and vhat a fearful balk in the service that vould make. Then one of the priests aight get his breastplate on crooked. 3ut it seems too bad to leave this man n this condition. Perhaps I had bet er try to stanch this >lefdingand give in a little stimulant. But no! The ereioiiy at Jerusalem is of more im ortance than taking care of the wounds f a man who will probably soon be ead anyhow. This highway robbery tight to be stopped, for it binders us ,rvites on our way up to the temple. 'here, I have lost live minutes already! o along, you beast!" he shouts as he trikes his heels into the sides of the nimal carrying him, and the dust ising from the road soon hides the ard hearted olicial. A CIIRISTIAN IN PRACTIOE. But a third person is coming along his road. You cannot expect him to o anything by way of alleviation, be ause he and the wounded man belong .) different nations, which have abom mted each other for centuries. The rounded man is an Israelite, and the tranger now coming on this scene of affering is a Sanaritan. They belong ) nations which hated inch other with it objurgation and malediction dia olit. They had opposition temples ne on Mount Gerizim and the other on lount Moriah-and I guess this Sama tan, when he cons ip, will give the llen Israelite another clip and say: 3ood for youl I will just finish the 'ork these bandits began, and give you ,e more kick that will put you out of :)ur misery. And here is a rag of )ur coat that they did not steal, and I 'ill take that. What! Do you dare to pqeal to for mercy? 11ush up! Why, ur ancestors worshiped at Jerusalem hen they ought, to have worshiped at erizim. Now take that! and that! id that !" will say the Samaritan as he )tunds the fallen Israelite. No; the Samaritan rides up to the :ene of suffering, gets off the beast id steps down and looks into the face the wounded man and says: "This )or fellow does not belong to my Ition, and our ancestors worshiped in fferent places, but he is a man, and iat makes us brothers. God pity him, I do." And he gets down on his nees and begins to examine his ounds and straighten out his limbs to e if any of his bones are broken, and Lys: "My dear fellow, cheer up; you ned have no more care about yourself. )r I am oing to take care of you. Let ke feel of your pulsel Let me listen > your breathing! I have in these ottles two liquids that will help you. he one is oil, and that will soothe the sin of these wounds, and the other is ine, and your pulse is feeble and you sel faint, and that will stimulate you. ow I must get you to the nearest ivern." "Oh, no," says the man, "I n't walk; let me stay here and die." -onsense!" says the Samaritan. "You e not going to (lie. I am going tM At you on this beast and I will hold >t on till I get you io a place where it can have a soft mattress and an isy pillow." Now the Samaritan has got the otinded man on his feet, and with uch tugging and lifting puts him on ,e beast, for it is astonishing how rong the spirit of kindness will make ie, as you have seen a mother after tree weeks of sleepless watching of Lr boy, down with scarlet fever, lift tat half grown boy, heavier than her f, from couch to lounge. And so is sympathetic Samaritan has un (led put the wounded man in the iddle, and at slow pace the extempo zed ambulance is moving towards the wvern. "You feel better no w, I think," tys the Samaritan to the Hebrew. YTes," he says, "I (do feel better." [lalloo, youi landlord! help me carry uis man in aad make him comfort ble." That night the Samaritan sat p with the JTew, giving him water 'henever he felt thirsty and turning is pillow whenever it got hot, and in eo morning before the Samaritan arted on his journey he saidi, "Land-. rd now I am obliged to go. Take nod care of this man, and I will be long here soon again and pay yelu for .1 youl do for him. Meanwhile here is mneet hing to meet present expenses." lhe "two peceI" he gave the landlord mlilds smnali, buit it was as much as ten ollars hero and now, considering what would there and then buly of food id lodging. (10O1 MEN IN ALL COMMUNIONs. As (on that DeQcemlber noon wve sat nder the shadow of the tavern where uis scene of me(rcy had occurredl, and ist having passed along the road 'here the tragedly had happened, I tl, as plainly as I now see the near tt inan to tis platform, see that Bible ory re-eniacted, and I said aloud to, *tr group uinder the tenit: "One drop If pactical Christuinity Is worth more ian a templeful of ecclesi, st,icism, t(d that good Samaritan had more re gion inl live mtiites than that minis er anid t hat Levite had in a lifetinme Id thie most accursed thing on earth national prejuice, and I bless God int I lve in A merica, where Gentile '1d ,Jew, Protestant and Catholic can To together without quarrel, and 'here in thle great national crucible me (lifferenices of sect and tribe and Pople are being molded into a great rothlerhood, and that the quiestion 'hiich the lawyer flung at Christ, andt -hieh brought, fortht this inlcidlent of ae good Samarit an- -'Whmo is my neigh or?' is bringing forth tile answer, dly neighboir is tile first man I meet in nmble,' and a woutn close at hand ills Ioude~r thanl a t,emple seventeen lilles off, though it covers nineteen ON TIIE SITE OF JEIICO. On the evening of Dec. 6i we walked mid the brick and morter or that shat ired city, and I said to myself: All i1s done by poor music blest of Goed, >r it was not a harp, or a flute, or ai apping cymbal, or an organ played, t the sound of which the city suirrenl ered to (destruction, bitt a rude instru uent making rudle music blest of God, the demolition of that wicked place hich had for centuiries dlelled the Al ighty. And I said, if all this was by lue blessing of (God on poor music, 'hat mightier things couild be done by is bllessing of Goed on good music, Cillful music, gospel music. If all the ood that has alreadly been done by7 tnsie were suhtracted from the wor.. I believe three-fourths of its religion would be gone. The lullabys of ioth ers which keep sounding on, though the lips that sang then forty years ago became ashes; the old hymns in log cabin churches and country meeting houses, and psalms in Rouse's version in Scotch kirks; the anthem in English cathedrals; the roll of organs that. will never let IIandel or Ilaydn or Beet!o von die; the thrum of harps, sweep of the bow across bass viols, the song of Sabbath schools storming the heavens, the doxology of great assemblages why, a thousand .Xerichos of sin have by them all been brought (town. Seated by the warmth of our camp fires that evening of Dec. 6, amid the bricks and debris of Jericho, and think ing what poor music has done and what mightier things could be accom plished by the blessings of God on good mnusc, J said to myself: Ministers have been doing a grand work, an( sermons have been blessed, but would it not be well for us to put ,moro emphasis on mudic? Oh, for a campaign of "Old Hundred!" Oh, for a brigade of Mount Pisgahs! Oh, for a cavalry charge or "Coronations!" Oh for an arny of Antiochn and St. Niartins and Ariels! Oh, for enough orchestral batons lift ed to marshal all nations! As Jericho was surrounded by poor mtisic for sev en days, And was conquered, so let our earth be surrounded seven days by good gospel inusic, and the round planet will be taken- for God. Not a wall of opposition, not a throne of tyranny, not a palace of sin, not an en terprise of unrighteousn Ass,(oul(l stand( the inighty throb of such atmospheric pulsation. Music! It sounded at the laying of creation's corner stone when the morning stars sang together, Mit sic! It will be the last reverberation, when the archangel's trumpet shall wake the dead. Music! Let its full power be now tested to comfort and bless and arouse and save. SOUNDINO THE TI3PET FOlt SALVA TION. The region round about the cit.y walls seemed to ic white with cotton such as Thenius describes as once growing there, and sweet with sugar cane, and lucious with orange and figs and pomegranates, and redolent with such flora as can only grow where a tropical -suit kisses the earth. And the hour came back to me when in the midst of all that splendor Ilerod died, commanding his sister Salome i minnodi ately after his death to secure the as sassination of all the chief Jews whom he had brought to the city and shut up i a circus for that purpose, and the news came to the audience in the theatre as some one took the stage and announced to the excited multitude: "Ilerod is (lead! Ierod is dead! Then in my dream all the pomp of Jericho vanished, and gloom was added to gloom, and desolation to des,)latioi and woe to woe, until, perhaps the rip pling waters of the Fountain of Elisha suggesting it-as sounds will some times give direction to a dream-I thought that the waters of Christ's sal vation and the fountains "open for -in and uncleanness" were rolling through that plain and across that continent, and rolling round the earth, until on either side of their banks all the thorns became flowers, and all the deserts gardens, and all the hovels mansions, and all the funerals bridal processions, and all the blood of war was turned into dahlias, and all the groans became anthems, Dante's "Inferno" became Dante's "Divina Comnedia," and "Par adise Lost" was submerged by "Para dise Regained," and tears became crys tals, and cruel swords came out of foundries glistening plowshares, and in my dream at the blast of a trumpet the prostrated walls of Jericho rose again. And some one told me that as these walls in Joshua's time at the sounding trumpets of doomi went lown, now at the sounding trumpet of the gospel they come up again. And I thought a man appeared at the (door or my tent, andl I said, "WVho are you andl from whence have you come ?" and he said, "I am the Samaritan you heard of at the tavern on the road fromt Jerusalem to Jericho as taking care of the man wvho fell among thieveq, and I have just come from healing the last wound of the last unfortunate In all the earth." And 1 rose irom my p)illow in the tent to greet him, and my dream broke and I realized It was only a direami, but a diream wvhich shall become a glorious reality as surely as God is trute andl Christ's gospel is the world's Cathoii con.

There is no longer room for doubt that thle inuirdeir of Chief' lenniessy was the deliberately phl ed Work of an organized hand of Italians. Tho crime is the lat(,st. in a series of crimes which have calused many deaths. In Juno a gang of Italian bravos lay in wait at minight for aiother party of Italians, Matrangas, who had offended them in some way or t her', and riddled the en tire party with bullets. The aithori ties determined to put an end to this veidetta business, which has resulted in forty or moro murders and assassit tions, and vigerous efforts were made to track and captire the criminals. Six men were arrested for the crime and tried. )tiring the trial one of the prin cipal Wit nesses,an Italian,was assassina ted. 'lhe trial resulted inl a conviction, but there Was so much perjury that, t lie Judge granted a now trial, which is yet to come off Chief of Police IIennessy, who was a witness inl the first case, set to Work to collect all the evidence about tle Mafia, theStopalingieriand other Italian assas sinat ion societ ies, and about the nutmller os v.endett as and inurders connnit ted by them.

Tal about 1IghtIng the MckIlly Act lin the Courts. WASHINUTON, October 23.-A nunu ber of newspapers this morning pub. lish articles foreshadowing attempts to contest the legality of the McKinley tariff upon various grounds, one being clerieal errors and omissions in the en rolment of the bill with the conference committee changes. Concerning these publications Secre tary Windom said this morning he knew nothing officially about protests aginst the legality of the McKinley tarihff bill. "I do not," he said "regard it as the province of an executive ofli cer to question the constitutionality of Acts of Congress. It is for him to en force the law as lie finds it and not to determine qlestions affecting its legali tY. I am therefore executing the Mc Inley Tariff Act as I find it-approv ed by the President of the United States and certified as correct by the 1'resitlent of the Senate and Speaker of the louse of Iepresentatives, and i shall continue to do so unless a compe Ivent. legal tribune, such as the Supreme Court, decides that the law is uncon stititional. It is not for me to lues tion tihe validit.v of any of the signa ttires to the bili as enrolled, neither is it for lie to detreint[e whether the bill signed by the President did or not, in fact, pass the lower house. Much less is it, for mne to determine whether omis sion of the tobacco drawback section or any other provision of the hill invali dat is t he law as a whole. As I itnder siati it the Act of October 1, 1890, is the law of the land. My duty, there fore, is plain arnid I shall execut,e its provisions to the best of my ability. Its constitutionality is a question for the Comrts and tinil they decide against it I shall be governed by it as it stands." Attorney General Miller positively deelined to diseliss the IIIestion in anMY of its hearings, saying it, would ho manifestly inproper for him to do so ,1,i1ess it caime to him in an official way. Tlhe cIIinissioner iof internal revenue, Mr. Mason, who is specially charged with the execution of the tobacco pro visions ot the law, confined his remarks in regard to the alleged illegality of the law to the following: "I will obey the law as certifled by tie Srcretary of' tate. It is not for me Io say whether or not the omnission of the tobacco rebate provisions vitiates the law. Heing nerely an executive oflic'r of the (sovernnent I inust en force it as I find it. AnVhow, tihe to bacco scli(duIle does not take effect un til danuary 1, so that if Congress dv sires to refund the two cents a pound (it all tobaveo on hiand when the law takes effect it has airiple time to legis late to that end." No alarm is felt here among the friends of the McKinley bill as to the legality of its enactment. An old and experienced employee of the louse said to-day: "Precedents of unnumbered years eave no doubt that ain error, whether of omission or commission, in the en rolment of a bill passed by Congress does not vitate any part of the measure except that part to which the error r lates. Errors ofesoio kind occur at every session of Congress in at least ono or iore important bills, and to hold that the omission or insertion of paragraph, word or punctuation nitark invalidates not only the part of the hill to which the error is relevant, but the entire invasire, woild estab lish chaos in the affairs of the Goyern nient and comipel Congress to remain constantly in session to correct iiii inediately on discovery errors In bills signed by the President in order that the operations of the Government inight be carried on. It is safe to say that an error occurs4 in at least one ap propriation hill dutring each Congress, urid yet there h is never been any djoiubt entertai ned I y the accouniting ofilicers ofi t hei Gzovern inent, or by anry one else, as toi t he vali idi ty of all the appiropria tionis except the Particular one affected by~ such errior.

A Mae Meeting to be l1el at the Court 11TNe on October 30 at Which Tillman, l1tgood and otlier Prominent Demo crat@ Will Speak. BAMnU(j, Oct. 20..-The Barnwell County )emocratic Executive commit tcc met to-(ay in the court houso to ar range for the coming campaign and elec .ion, with )r. W. B. Wice in the chair, and i). II. Witherspoon as secretary. It was unaninously (ecide(d that Thursday, October 30, should be the (lay for holding the County mass meet ing. The ironorable B. R. Tilluan has been invited to speak and has accepted. The other orators will be Honorable G. 1)uncan Rollinger, Colonel Robert Ald rich, and Generml Johnson I1agood. Oc tober 30 will be a red letter day with Barnwell County, and an immeuso crowd of Barnwell's true Democracy will be brought to the court house to par ticipate in the occasion. Chairman Rice issued the following strong and rousing a(ldress to the Demo cracy of the County to-day: Toc the Democratic Voters of Barnwell County: We are confronted by a grave condi tion of aflairs, unknown before in the political hist,ory ofSouth Carolino. Tho life of our party is threatened. White s.upreinacy is im danier and the civiliza tion of our people is the issue involved. What was predicted by some, but unex. pected by us, has happened. It was hoped that the counsel of moderation would prevail al'ter Lite meeting of your Convention im September. These hopes have been blasted. Au indepen dent movement has bee inaugurated 1111(l an independent ticket has be.n placed in the field, and, for its success, a coalition must be formed with the Re publican party. Aid must not be given it from the ranks of the I)emocracy. A meeting of citizens has been held, styling themselves Straightouts, repre senmg a defeated minority of the Democratic party of the State, and in opposition to the regularly constituted authorities of our party and in defiance of the I)enocratic conventions hold in August. and September have issued a proclamation of war against our Demo cratic nominces, and to lead them in this unnatural undertaking they have nomi nated a full State ticket with Judge IIaskell at its head. Their action has been such that they can be no longer considered a part of the Democratic party of South Carolina. They have abandoned the Democracy by calling on the negro vote to aid thei in their in famous scheme of overriding the will of the majority and placing South Carolina again in the hands of the alien opproaser an( thie servile and ignorant negro. While may of them are men of high social standing and once of great politi cal influence, men whom the State has honored with high political trust, it be comes our duty to use all the means in our power to defeat and stamp out this wanton act of independentism which is far worse than Radscallem. We owe it to ourselves and to our posterity never again to allow our State to be trampled under foot and ie prostrate at the feet of those who will dlespoil her. We should take no risk and listen to ino specious argument that there is no danger, but lhe on the alert and use all our influence in bringing to the polls every D)emocratilc voter and see that every ballot is prop erly deposited. It has b)een seught to deceive our peo ple by the unfounded argument that it is vain to say that the action of' a political piarty exempts the voter from responsi bility. Such doctrine is without founda tion and un-Demnocratic. If'such men bers of a ptarty is a law unto himself then no party could exist. Party fealty requires each member to vote for and sup~port the party nominees. I woul urge you by the hope of to future of' our State and the future of'our CTounity that you meet this issue on the dlay of electioni, and1( let it be saidl at the close of' the fourth day of November that we have again saved the civilization and honor of South Carolina. Your ballots must decide whether D)emocracy or Rtad icalism shall rule im South Carolina, and we conhidhently look to your fealty to the D emocratic party that the dlecision sha.1 lhe a tiriumpIh (of the DJemoraey and a i timl stamping out of all future attempts to mtdepenidentism in our Stete2and County. A Seanational Oase. In the Court of General Sessions for lierkeley County last Thursday a very sensational caise was tried. It was aigainst William 11. Bell, a young white mian chtargedl with bigamy. The State showed that in 1888 Hell marrIed Miss Mary IBurbidge. After lIving at the '~ house of the bride's father for two imonths Bell wvent off to get work, and in 1889 lie married Miss Grooms. The peculiar part of the transaction was that the first wife appeared In Court apparently on the best terms with the defendant, and in an utnollicial way clearly allowed it to be0 uinderstood that she wantedl him acquittedi. 'rho de fendant admitted the two marriages, but dleclared that his first wife, Miss Burbidge, although she allowed the service to be performed, refused point blank to live with hinm as mian and wife, and told him he could marry any body else ho pleased and she never wouild interfere with him. While not clearly brought out in the evidence it waIs fairly inferretd that the ease pre scuted an instance of uncontroilable aversion on the part of the bride to wards the husband. and( nothIng would indu1ce her to live with him as his wife. T1his conduct was all the more suirpris lng and inconsistent from the fact that the girl entered into the marriage free ly anid without any coercion. At any rate the jury thought It was a pretty hard case oi Dell, and returned a ver dhict of not guilty. Thlis verdict of course validates Blil's second marriage and legitimaitizes his issue by that marriage.
