e is only a black messenger who
omes to tell us it is time to move; to
11 us to get out of this hut and go up
ito the palace. The Christian owns
I beaven. "All are yours." Its pala.
-s of beauty, its towers of strength. I
s castles of love. He will not walk
the eternal city as a foreigner in a
range city, but as a farmer walks
er his own premises.
"All are yours." All the mansions a
urs. Angels your companions. Trees
life your shade. Hills of glory your C
okout. Thrones of heaven the place t
here you will shout the triumph. i
esus is yours. God is yours. You
)ok up into tho taco of God and say,
LNy father." You look up into the I
ice of Jesus and say, "My brother."
Valk out on the battlements of heav
n and look ofT upon the city of the
ni. No tears. No sorrow. No death. 1
to smoke of tolling warehouse curling
n the air. No voice of blasphemy
brilling through that bright,clear Sab
iath morning. No din of strife jarring
he air. Then take out your deed. and
emember that from throne to throne,
mid from wall to wall, and from hori
.i): to horizon, "All are yours."
Then get up into the temple of the
mn worshipers in white, each with a
alm branch, and from high gallery of
.hat temple look down upon the thous
tnds of thousands, and the ten thousand
Limes ten thousand, and the one hun
.ired and forty and four thousand, and
the great "multitude that no man can
nuiiber," and louder than the rush of
the wheels, louder than the tramp of
the redeemed, hear a voice saying, "All
are yours!" See the great procession
marching around the throne of God.
Martyrs who went up on wings of
Il:mne. Invalids who went up from
couches of (listress. l'oilers who went
iii) from the workhouse and the factory
,fnd the mine. All the suiffering and
the bruised children of God. See the
clUiots of SAlvation; in them those.
who were iore than conqierors. See
theim marching around about the
throne of G(d forever and forever, and
know t1it "all are yours."
0 ye who lia%ve pains of body that ex
ba1st your strengi and wear out your
1at ivie, I hold before you this morn
inz (lie lanl of eternal health and of
imperishable beauty and "all is yours!"
0 ye who have hard work to get your
daily bread, hard work to shelter your
children Froni the storm, I lift before
you the vision of that land where they
never hunger, ana they never thirst,
and God feeds then, and robes cover
Ihtrm, and the warimth of eternal love
ilis them. and all that is yours!
0 ye whose hearts are buried in the
ineLVC of your dead--0 ye whose happi
ios went, y long ago -( 0ye who mourn
or comiteniiee.s that never will light
ip and for vyvs closed forever--sit no
ointer among the tornbs, but look here!
A\ home that shall never be broken up.
reen fi'lds never cleft of the grave.
Nansomed one from yot parted long
ig,) now radiant with joy that shall
mever cease, and a love that simall nover
row cold, and wearing garments that
Oitl never wither, and know all that
is yours. Yours the love. Yours the
welaiim. Yours the transport. Yours
Ie cry (if the four and twenty eiders.
Yours the choiring of cherubim. Yours
Lhe lamb that was slain.
In the vision of that glorious con
iimiation I almost lose my foothold,
ind have t.o hold fast lest I be over
borne by i hi' glory. The vision rose be
fore St. John on 'atmos, and he saw
Uhrist in a blood red garment, riding
on a white horse, and all hieaven follow
ing himn on white horses. What a pro
cession' L4et J1esus ride, iIe walked
the way footsore, weary and faint. Now
let him ride. White horse of v'ictory,

DIBBLE TO IRBY.
a Letter in Reply to One PublInhed Last
COLUMBIA, S. C., July 18th, 1892.
Ion. John L. M. Irby, Chairman State
Democratic Committee of South Caro
lina, Washington, D. C.
Sin-1 read in a newspa per on Satur -
ay. and have since received your letter
f l3th inst., in reply to my communica
ion of 4th inst., i.% which I requested,
a behalf of the Cohservative Demo
racy, that the State Democratic Com
nittel take into consideration, and ex
licitly declare, what is to be done at
.he August primary in regard to Third
party men w ho ol'er to vote, and whether
3urollment in a Democratic club Is
uccessary to entitle one to vote. I'stated
that you had bvcn reported in the press,
in favor of allowing' Third party men to
vote, and in favor of allowing Demo
crats not enrollLd to vote; and that your
published views had evoked ditcussion,
and that opinicus differed as to their
correctness; addiu that it was necessary
to a fair election that all doubts should
be set at rest on these important points
by the State Democratic committee at
jts next meeting, when we desire to sub
mit our views, as the representatives of
our wing of the Democracy of the State.
In 3our reply you state that you
"know of no- Third party in South Caro.
lina," and that you "therefore conclude

ject of the colored population of the

shows that the total colored population,
as returned tinder the census of 1890, is

persons of African descent, 107,475 are
Chinese, 2,039 are Japanese and 58,806
ate civilized Indians. Considering per

The abnormal Increase of the colored
population of the south during the de
cale ending in 1880, led to the popular
belief that the negroes were increasing
at a much greater rate than the white
population. The present census has
shown, however, that the high rate of
increase in the colored population as
showni by the census of 1880, was alp
parent only and was due to the imper

There has been an increase in the

outcome of the unwarranted arrest of
strangers yesterday. The Homestead
locked out men are not e,ntirely pleased
over the threatened strike to day at the

general opinion among the 1IIomestead
men that more assistance can be given
t,hem if the men remain at work than by
coming out. There are to-day ht uin

but whether they are non-union work
