How an Accidental Discovery by an
American evrsp:iiicr Correspond
ent Made Tlilnm Knuy For the Jap

Special Correspondence.
San Francisco, Oct. 2G. Walter G.
Smith, who is one of the editors of the
San Francisco Chronicle, is about to
leave for Honolulu, where he will take
charge 'of the leading daily newspaper.
Mr. Smith formerly resided in the Ha
waiian Islands and for two years was
very prominent in political affairs.
In China during the war with Japan
and while representing The Chronicle
Mr. Smith won his greatest fame. He
went throneh the final campaign and
witnessed six battles and was present
at the surrender of the Chinese fleet.
At Wei -Hai-Wei Mr. Smith happened to
be in the company of some newspaper
men, and they started out for the wa
terfront with the intention of reaching
a certain point of laud where a good
view of the ships could be secured.
There were 10,000 Japanese soldiers
surrounding the city. Mr. Smith and
his friends as they walked along the
nhore were soon discovered by a Chinese
gunboat. She came up and surveyed
tho littlo party of newspaper men and
concluded to fire. The ball struck Borne
mules near by, and they started to run.
Mr. Smith and his fellow journalists
continued on their walk. The eiinboat

was then a thonsand yards away, when
suddenly a company of Japanese soldiers
was spied on a nearby hill. The gun
boat turned around and from a distance
of 300 feet tried to kill the Japs with
her rapid firs machine guns. The Japs,
instead of retiring, picked off the sail
ors on the vessel. A fight for ten min
utes followed, and tho gunboat then de
cided to sail away.
During this contest the newspaper
men were standing on a levee, and un
der it had been placed n ton of dyna
mite. They started back for the hill
and entered a largo Chinese house which
had been looted by the troops. The
newspaper men were hungry, so they
searched for food. A can of molded rai
sins was all that could be found. Mr,
Smith wns looking down on the floor
when he taw an old Chinese geography
and picked it up as a souvenir. It was
a fortunate moment for him.
The house had been occupied by an
English officer, Colonel Theodore Snell
by name, who had been the instructor
to the Chinese navy. He was at that
moment with the fleet in tho harbor.
Mr. Smith and his companions went
out of the house and eat on a stone wall
to eat their raisins. A quarter of a mile
away were tho Chin Chen Yen and oth
er boats, and when they saw the hungry
crowd on the stone wall the Chinamen
opened fire. Shells soon began to drop,
and the war vessels were covered with
smoke. All the newspaper men lay flat
on the ground except one man, who
stood erect and unmoved. He had a
camera and took pictures dnring the
ctorm of shells. Mr. Smith declares that
the act of this photographer was one of
the bravest deeds he ever saw.
Later the party started back for the
city, but one of the gunboats, discern
ing their intention, attempted to head
them off. This compelled the corre
spondents to seek shelter until the dan
ger had passed. While a dozen or more
shells were whistling over their heads
and bullets were dropping on all sides
the newspaper men felt that it was a
good time to keep quiet. Pretty soon
the thing became monotonous, and Mr..
Smith began to be restless. He hap
pened to think of his geography and as
an amusement decided to take the vol
ume out of his pocket and look over its
pages. As he did so a piece of paper fell
out and fluttered on the ground. He
had enough curiosity to pick up the
fallen paper. Upon examination it
proved to be a most valuable document
It was the official map of tho city and
harbor of Woi-Hai-Wei. It had been
drawn by Colonel Snell and was his
personal property. All the important
fortifications around the city, the loca
tion of the different guns and the posi
tion of the obstructions in the water
were clearly shown. As soo:i as the Chi
nese boat got tired of firing her guns
she steamed away.
Mr. Smith, realizing the importance
of his discovery, hurried at onco with
the other newspaper men and soon
reached tha Japanese lines. He then
went to the army headquarters and in
formed the authorities of his find. In
handing in the map he requeued that
it should be returned to him after use.
That same evening the map was for
warded to the commander of tho Japa
nese blockading squadron. He was the
famous Admiral Ito and decided to
make use of his latest information. He
realized that he held the key to tho sit
uation and only waited for the coming
of daylight to put his newly formed
plans into execution. When the next
morning arrived, Admiral Ito sent his

Half a dozen back country Boers had
come to Pretoxia to see the wonders of

and later ou during the day he showed
them over the government buildings.
In ono of tho rooms an electric lamp
was burning, and as they were passing
out tho president, with his hand on
the switch or button, asked them to
blow out the light from where they
stood. One after the other drew a
deep breath, blew out his cheeks. and
sent forth a tremendous puff, but all in
vain, the light burning steadily as be

and. blowing out his cheeks, he slyly
turned the switch, blew, and out went

Two hnndred and forty-eight time
3oes the Bible refer to the angels, yet I
never heard or read a sermon on angel
ology. The whole subject is relegated
to the realm mythical, weird, spectral
and unknown. Such adjournment is
nn-Scriptnral and wicked. Of their life,
their character, their habits their ac
tions, their velocities, the Bible gives
us full length portraits, and why this
prolonged and absolute silence concern
ing them ? Angelology is my theme.
There are two nations of angels, and
they are hostile to each other the na
tion of good angels and the nation of
bad angels. Of the former I chiefly
speak today. Their capital, their head
quarters, their grand rendezvous, is
heaven, but their empire is the uni
verse They are a distinct race of crea
tures. No human being can over join
their confraternity. The little child
who in tho Sabbath school sings, "I
want to be an angel," will never have
her wish gratified They are superhu
man, but they are of different grades
and ranks, not all on the same level or
tho same height. They have their su
periors and inferiors and equals. I pro
pose no guessing ou this subject, but
take the Bible for my only authority.
Plato, tho philosopher, guessed and di
vided angels into snpercelestial, celes
tial and snbcelestial. Dionysius, the
Areopagite, guessed and divided them
into threo classes, tho supreme, tho
middle and the last, and each of these
into threo other classes, making nine in
all. Philo said that the angels wero re
lated to God. as tho rays to the sun.
Fulgentius said that they were com
posed of body and spirit. Clement said
they were incorporeal. Augustine said
that they had been in danger of falling,
but now are beyond being tempted.
But tho only authority on this subject
that I respect says they are divided into
cherubim, seraphim, thrones, domina
tions, principalities, powers. Their com
mander in chief is Michael. Daniel
called him Michael. St. John called
him Michael. These supernal beings are
more tnorougniy organized mail any
army that ever marched. They arc
swifter than any cyclone that ever
swept the pea. Tbey are more radiant
than any morning that ever came down
tho sky. They have more to do'with
your destiny and mine than any being

Lord Jesus, open our eyes and touch
our tongue and rouse cur soul while we
speak of their deathlessness, their in
telligence, their numbers, their strength,
their achievements.
A Criullc. but Xo Grave.
Yes, deathless. They had a cradle,
but will never have a grave. The Lord
remembers when they were born, bnt
no one shall ever see their eye extin
guished cr their momentum slow up or
their existence terminate. The oldest
of them has not a wrinkle or a decrepi
tude or a hindrance, as young alter
6,000 years as at the close of their first
hour. Christ said of the good in heav
en, "Neither can they dio any more, for
they are equal unto the angels." Yes,
deathless are these wonderful creatures
of whom I speak. They will see world
after world go out, but there shall be
no fading of their own brilliance. Yea,
after the last world has taken its last
flight they will io ready for tho widest
circuit through immensity, taking a
quadrillion of miles in one sweep as
easy as a pigeon circles a dovecot. They
are never sick They are never exhaust
ed They need no sleep, for they are
never tired At God's command they
smote with death in one night 185,000
of Sennacherib's host, but no fatality
can smite them Awake, agile, multi
potent, denthless, immortal I
A further characteristic of these ra
diant folk is intelligence. The woman
of Teko?h was right when she spoke to
King David of the wisdom of an angel.
We mortal take in what littlo we know
through eye and car and nostril and
touch, but thoso beings have no physic
al encasement, and hence they are all
senses. A wall five feet thick is not
solid to them. Through it they go with
out disturbing flake of mortar or crystal
of sand Knowledge! It flashes on them.
They take it in at all points. They ab
sorb it They gather it up without any
hindermeut. No need of literature for
them The letters of their books aro
stars. Tho dashes of their books are
meteors. The words of their books are
constellations'! The paragraphs of their
books are galaxies The pictures of
their books are sunrises and sunsets and
midnight auroras and the Conqueror on
the white horse with the moon under
his feet. Their library is an open uni
verse. No need of telescope to see some
thing milliuis of miles away, for in
stantly they aro there to inspect and
explore it All astronomies, all geol
ogies, all botanies, all philosophies, at
their feet What an opportunity for in
telligence is theirs I What facilities for
knowing everything and knowing it
right away!
There 'o only one thing that put!
them to their wits' end. and the Bible
says they Imvo to study that. They
have been studying it all through the
ages, and yet I warrant they have not
fully grasped it the wonders of re
demption. Theso wonders are s-o high,
to deep, t-o grand, s-o stupendous, so
magnificent, that even the intelligence
of angelhood is confounded before it.
Tho apostlo says, "Which things the
angels desire to look into." That is a
inbject that excites inquisitiveness on
their part. That is a theme that strains
their faculties to tho utmost. That is
higher than they can climb, deeper
than they can dive. They have a desire
for something too big for their compre
hension "Which tilings the angels de
sire to look into. " But that does not
discredit their intelligence. No ono but
God himself can fully understand the
wonders of redemption. If all heaven
should study it for 50 eternities, they
would get no further than the ABC
of that inexhaustible subject. But near
ly all other realms of knowledge they
have ransacked and explored and com
pared. . No one bnt God can tell them
anything they do not know. They have
read to the last word of the last line of
tlie last page of the last volmne of in
vestigation, and what delights me most
is that all their intelligence is to be at
our disposal, and, coming into their
presence, they will tell us in five min
utes more than we can learn by 100
years of earthly snrmUing.
Velocity of Immortals.
A further characteristic of these im
mortals is their velocity. This the Bible
puts - sometimes under tiie figure of
wings, sometimes under the figure of a
flowing garment, t-oiuetimea nnder the
figure of naked feet. As these superhu-
mans ate without liodies, these expres
sions are of course figurative and mean
swiftness. The Bible tells us that Daniel
was praying and Gabriel flew from
heaven and tonched him before he got
up from his knees. How far, then, did
the Angel Gabriel have to fly in those
moments of Daniel's prayer? He'aven is
thoueht to be the center of the uni
verse, our sun and its planets only tho
rim of the wheel of worlds. In a mo
ment the Angel Gabriel flew from that
center to this periphery. Jesus told
Peter ho could instantly have 00,000
angels present if he called for them.
What foot of antelope or wing of al
batross could eqnal that velocity! Law
of gravitation, which grips all things
else, has no influence upon angelic mo
mentum. Immensities before them open
and shut like a fan. That they are here
is no reason why they should not be a
quintiilion of miles hence the next min
ute. Our bodies hinder us, bnt oar
minds can circle the earth in h minute.
Angelic beings are bodiless and have no
limitation. God may with his finger
point down to some world in trouble on
the outmost limits of creation, and in
stantly an angelic cohort is there to
help it, or some celestial may be stand
ing at the farthermost outpost of im
mensity, and God may say "Cornel"
and instantly it is in his bosom. Abra
ham, Elijah, Hagar, Joshua, Gideon,
Manoah, Paul, St. John, could tell of
their unhindered locomotion. The red
feet of summer lightning are slow com
pared with their hegiras. This doubles
up and compresses infinitudes into in
finitesimals. This puts nil the astro
nomical heavens into a space like the
balls of a child's rattle. This mingles
into ono the here and the there, the
now and tho then, the beyond and the
Another remark I have to make con
cerning these illustrious immortals is
that they are multitudinous. Their cen
sus has never been taken, and no one
but God knows how many they are,
but all the Bible accounts suggest their
immense numbers companies of them,
regiments of them, armies of them,
mountain tops haloed by them, skies
populous with them. John speaks of
angels and other beings round the
throne as ten thousand times ten thou
sand. Now, according to my calcula
tion, ten thonsand times ten thonsand
are 100,000,000. But these ore only the
000 of them rolling down the sky in
chariots. When God came away from
the riven rocks of Mount Sinai, the
Bible says he had the companionship of
1 0, 000 angels. I think they are in every
battle, in every exigency, at every
birth, at every pillow, at every hour,
at every moment, the earth full of
them, the heavens full of them.
Ontnatuber the Human Rnce.
They outnumber the human race in
this world. They outnumber ransomed
spirits in glory. When Abraham had
his knife uplifted to slay Isaac, it was
an angel who arre3ted the stroke, cry
in" "Abraham. Abraham!" It was a
stairway of angels that Jacob saw while
pillowed in the wilderness. We are told
an angel led the hosts of Israelites out
of Egyptian serfdom. It was an angel
that showed Hagar tho fountain where
she filled tho bottle for the lad. It was
an angel that took Lot out of doomed
Sodom It was an angel that shut up
the mouth of the hungry monsters when
Daniel was thrown into the caverns. It
was an angel that fed Elijah under tha
juniper tree. It was an angel that an
nounced to Mary the approaching na
tivity They were angels that chanted
when Christ was born. It was an angel
that strengthened our Saviour in his
agony It was an angel that encouraged
Paul in the Mediterranean shipwreck.
It was an angel that bnrst open the
prison, gate after gate, until Peter was
liberated. It was an angel that stirred
the pool of Siloain, where the sick were
healed. It was an angel that John saw
flying through the midst of heaven, and
an angel with foot planted on the 6ea,
and an angel that opened the book, and
an angel tlrst sounded the trumpet, and
an angel that thrust in the sickle, and
an angel that poured out the vials, and
an angel standing in the sun. It will
be an angel with uplifted hand swear
ing that time shall be no longer. In the
great final harvest of the world the
reapers are the angels. Yea. the Lord
shall be ravealed from heaven with
mighty angels. Oil. tho numbers and
the might and the glory of these sn
pernals fleets of them, squadrons of
them, host beyond host, rank above
rank, millions on millions, and all on
our side if wo will liavo them !
This leads me to speak of the offices
of these supernals. To defend, to cheer,
foresee, to escort, to givo victory to
the right and overthrow tho wrong
that is their business just as alert to
day and efficient as when in Bible times
they spread wing or unsheathed sword
or rocked down penitentiaries or filled
the mountains with horses of fire hitch
ed to chariots of fire and driven by
reiiismcu of fire.' They have turned
your steps a hundred times, and you
knew it not. You were on tho way to
do bonie wrong thing, and they changed
your course. They brought somo thonght
of Christian parentage or of loyalty to
your own home, and that arrested you.
They arranged that some one should
meet you at that crisis and propose
something honorable and elevating, or
they took from your pocket some ticket
to evil aimibement, a ticket that yon
never fonnd. It was nn angel of God,
and perhaps tho very ono that guided

safety for ten years, think of the angels
by tiie throttle valve, angels by the
roaring furnace of the engine, angels
looking from the overhsnging crag,
angels bracing the racing wheels off
the precipice, angels when you mount
the thunderbolt of a train and angels
when yon dismount! Can yon not hear
them, louder than the jamming of the
car counting, louder than the bell at the
crossing, louder than the whistle that
sounds like the scream of a flying fiend,
the angelic voices saying, "You did it
well, you did it well?" If I often speak
of engineers, it is because I ride so
much with them. I always accept their
invitation to join them on their loco
motive, and among them are some of
tho grandest men alive.
Cnnrdcd by Angels.
Men and women of all circumstances,

ciated at all, never feel lonely again or
unregarded again I Angois an arounu,
angels to approve, angels to help, angels
to remembsr. Yea, while all the good
angels aro friends of the good, there is
one special angel your bodyguard. This
idea until this present study of angelolo
gy I supposed to be fanciful, but I find it
clearly stated in the Bible. When the
fliscinles were nraving for Peter's de
liverance from prison and he appeared
at the door of the prayer meeting, tney
C3uld not believe it was Peter. They
s.iid, "It is his angel. So these disci
ples, in special nearness to Christ, evi
dently behoved that every worthy soul
bis an angel. Jesus said of his follow
ers. "Their angels behold the face of
my Father." Elsewhere it is said, "He
shall givo "his angels charge over thee,
to keep thee in all thy ways." Angel
shielded, angel protected, angel guard
ed, angel canopied, art thou ! No won
der that Charles Wesley hymned these
Which of the petty kinss of earth
Can bout a guard like ours,
Knurclcd" from our second birth
With all Hie licaienly irawers?
Valerius and Rufinus were put to
death for Christ's sake in tho year 287,
and after the day when their bodies
had been whipped and pounded into a
jelly, in the night in prison and before
the next day when they were to bo ex
ecuted, they both thought thoy saw
angels standing witli two glittering
crowns, saying: "Be of good cheer,
valiant soldiers of Jesus Christ I A lit
tle more of battle, and then these crowns
are yours." And I am glad to know
that before many of those who have
passed through great sufferings in this
life some angel of God has held a blaz
ing coronet of eternal reward. Yea, w
are to have snch a guardian angel to
take us upward when our work is done
You know, we aro told an angel con
ducted Lazarus to Abraham's bosom.
That showB that none shall be so poor
in dying he cannot afford angelic escort.
It would he a long way to go alone,
and up paths we have never trod, and
amid blazing worlds swinging in un
imaginable momentum, out and u
through such distances and across such
infinitudes of spaco wo should shndder
at the thought of going nlone.
But the angelic escort will come to
your languishing pillow or tho place of
your fatal accident and say: "Hail, im
mortal ono! All is well. God hath sent
mo to take yon home." And without
tremor or slightest sense of peril you
will awav and upwaid, farther on and
farther 0 until after awhile heaven

heaves in sight and the rumble of char
iot wheels and the roll of mighty har
monies are heard in the distance, and
nearer you come, and nearer still, until
the brightness is like many mornings
suffused into one, and the gates lift,
and yon are inside the amethystino walls
and on the banks of the jasper sea, for
ever safe, forever free, forever well,
forever rested, forever united, forever
happy. Mothers, do not think yenr lit
tle children go alone when they quit
this world. Out of your arms into an
gelic arms, ont of sickness into health,
out of the cradle into a Savionr's bosom!
Not an instant will the darlings be
alone lietween tho two kisses- the last
kiss of earth and the first kiss of heav
en. "Now, angels, do your work!"

Yes, a guardian angel for each one
of you. Put yourself now in accord
with him When ho suggests the right,
follow it. When ho warns yon against
the wrong, t-huu it. Sent forth from
God to help you in this great battle
against Ein nnd death, accept his deliv
erance. When tempted to .1 feeling of
loneliness and disheartenment, appro
priate the promise, "The angel of the
Lord encampeth around about them
that fear him and delivcreth them."
Oh, I am so glad that the i-paces be
tween here and heaven aro thronged
with these supernaturals taking tidings
home, bringing messages here, rolling
hack obstacles from our path and giv
ing us defenses, for terrific are the
forces who dispute our way, and if the
nation of tho good angels is on our side
the nation of bad angels is on the other.
Paul had it right when he said, "We
wrestle not against flesh and.blood, bnt
against principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the darkness of
this world, against spiritual wickedness
in high places." In that awful fight
may God send us mighty angelic re-cii-forcement!
We want all their wings on
our side, all tneir swoids on onr side,
all their chariots on onr side.
Thank God that those who are for us
aro mightier than those who are against
us! And that thought makes me jubi
lant as to the final triumph. Belginm,
you know, was tho battleground of
England and France. Yea. Belginm
more than once was the battleground
of opposing nations. It so happens that
thi.3 world is the Belginm or battle

Many a skirmish have tho two armies
had, but the great and decisive battle
is yet to be fought. Either from our
earthly homes or down from onr .su
pernal residences may wo como in on
the right side, for on that tide are God
and heaven and victory. Meanwhile tho
battle is being set in array, and tho
forces celeatial and demoniacal are con
fronting each other. Hear the lioom of
the great cannonade already opened:
Cherubim, seraphim, thrones, domina
tions, principalities and powers are be
ginning to ride down their foes, and,
until the work is completed, "Sun,
stand thon still upon Gibeon, and thou,

In an interview with a representative
nf the London Daily Chiouicle Mr.
Dunne told a story about the evening
paper in which Mr. Dooley first made
his appearance an ill fated sheet
which the gods loved. One day. just
before the end, a funeral passed the
office with a band playing the dead
inarch from "Saul." The editor and
Mr. Dunne watched it with emotion
and fear.
