Washington June JO. Further
aensatlons .in the senate's lobby in
vestigation were foreshadowed, to
day when it became known that a
subpoena bad been served upon Mar
tin M. Mulball of Baltimore, re
ported to have been for many years
the active "field agent" and lobby
1st of the National Association of
Manufacturers. The subpoena was
ordered by Chairman Overman of
the lobby committee after represen
tations bad been made to blm that
Mr. Mulhall was willing and able
to give the committee Important
facts regarding attempts to influ
ence legislation, to elect or defeat
candidates for congress and to con
trol the makeup of committee in
congress. A sergeant-at-arms of
the senate served the subpoena up
on Mr. Mulhall late last night in
The nature and extent of disclos

of the National Association of Man
ufacturers and bristles with the
names of congressmen whom he al
leges were "subservant" or who
-were punished for their opposition
to legislation favored by the asso
ciation. The allegations that he had help
ed to defeat congressmen who op
posed the interests of the manufac
turers that this organization bad
spent thousands of dollars' to elect
congressmen expected to be sympa
thetic to their Influences; that he
&ad aided in getting favorable mem
bers on committees that handled la-
tor legislation; , and that his asso
ciates had used great efforts to ef
fect the . establishment of a federal
tariff commission in 1908 as a
means of delaying tariff revision,
re contained in the long article
voder Mr. Mulhall's name.
The writer said he had spent more
than 1200,000 in lobbying; that he
2bd conducted state and congression
al campaigns; helped to break up
labor 'unions and had personal
knowledge of the extent to which
influence exerted by bis associates
-Jnad swayed legislators and legisla
tion. . '-, '.:'.'.
"The lobby Investigation has gone
far beyond its original, scope,", said
Chairman Overman, "and I do not
see any course for us to pursue but
to ask more power from the senate
-and to go into every phase of the. re
markable situation that has been
developed. Many others will be
subpoenaed." -

Topeka, June 26. Governor
Hodges is defending his duty toward
paroling the prisoners from the Lan-
elng penitentiary by declaring that it
Is the only way a convict, under the
Kansas law, can get out of a prison.

severely recently for liberating so
many of the state prisoners. He
belH-es that the figure recently
secured from Lansing, to the effect
that the indeterminate sentence in
Kansas has Increased the average
prison term one year and eight
months, proves that the parole pow

sed Injudiciously. He expects to

Topeka, June 27. A general fight
against the Missouri' ft Kansas, tele
phone company and alleged Increases
in rates was started before tbe Kan
sas public utility board today. The
first complaint was filed by Wichita,
and it is asserted that every city
where the Bell has purchased the
Independent company and now. has
a monopoly of tbe business, will file
intervening petitions, in. a general
plan to force ' a reduction of the
rates and the establishment of a
general uniform basis for 'all the
cities of the state.
The. Wichita independent ' plant
was one of the first purchased by
the Bell interests. The independent
business rate bad been $2.50
month while the Bell rate had been
$3 when the two lines were In op

same class of telephone Is $4
month. In Topeka the party line
residence rates is sixty cents higher
than In Wichita, with "about the
same number of telephones in serv

TKXT "Have He roell th Holy'
Ghost since r bUvfdT" AcU XIX. 1
Paul met per-,
tain disciples In
Epbesus whom at
first be supposed
to. be Christian
disciples, but In.
whose testimony
there was that
which led to the
. . i.T T A
. inquiry, ni j
received the Holy
Ghost since ye
believed T" It la
evident, therefore,
from these words
and from the se-
- quel that It Is one
thing to be a dis
ciple, and another
thing to "receive the Holy Ghost
This brings up the whole question a
to the relation of the Holy Spirit to
the disciple, or the believer , la
1. The personality of tbe Holy
Spirit We should keep In mind that
the Holy Spirit Is a divine person.
Personality consists In self-consciousness
and free will, and that the Holy
Spirit possesses personality in thia
sense is evident from three things:
(a) He has the attributes pf person-.
ality; (b) He does the works of a per
sonality; (c) 1 He has the, names of
a personality. . Speaking of his at
tributes, there is one which, , more
than any other, helps to a realization
of his personality. His attribute of
love, which is referred to only in
Romans 15:30. Do you know that the
Holy Spirit loves you, as a believer la
Christ, with a love In some sense dis
tinct from that either of the Father
or the Son 7 How marvelously near
that brings him to our hearts! The
Father's love manifested Itself In the
giving of his Son; the Son's love In
the offering of himself upon the cross,
and the Holy Spirit's love In taking up
his abode in us. ,
2. The Indwelling of the Holy Spirit
This brings us to the second thought
vis., tbe indwelling of the Holy Spirit
That Indwelling was promised in John
14:16-17. He had dwelt "with" the dis
ciples therefore, but he was to dwell
"in them" by and by. He had been
ajpowr acting pn them,rpni wilh-v,
but but thereafter he was .to influ
ence them from within. The prom
ise was ' renewed again In Act
1:4-5, where the indwelling waa
spoken of as the, "baptism" . of the
Holy Spirit The realisation came on
the day of Pentecost, when the dis
ciples were Indwelt baptised and In
filled with the Holy Spirit at one and
the same time.
This transaction, however, as far
as the first two terms are concern
ed, waa not limited to the church as
sembled on that day, but applies to
the whole church since. Such would
seem to be suggested . by L Corin
thians, 12:12-14, where 20 years. after
Pentecost we are taught that as be
lievers "we- were all baptized by one
Spirit Into one body." What 'body'
is means if not the body, or Christ, the
church t And what "baptism" If not
that "one baptism" on the day of Pen
tecost? -; , ' . ; ' f !. ,
3. The filing of the Holy . Spirit
But while the first two terms of that
transaction' on the day of Pentecost,
the Indwelling and the baptism (which
are one) were for the whole church
potentially, and for all time, yet the
same does not apply to the third, the
filling of , the Holy Spirit There la
but one indwelling, but many fillings.
We gather this from Act 6:31, where
the same persona who were "filled"
on the day of Pentecost were re
filled on a subsequent occasion. And
Again, in Acts 6, when men are to
be chosen to the offl.ee of deacpo. it
mL-rfbe" By nnose yno are -"full, cf
the Holy Spirit" as If some were thua
spiritually equipped while others were
not It Is something corresponding
to this, therefore, which Paul has .in
mind In onr text when he aaidr "Have,.
ye received the Holy Ghost since y
believed r .The reception of the Holy
Ghost on their part resulted In an en-
duement of power, but in other place
of the Acta, notably the fourth chap-
ter. lt is seen to have resulted not
only, In the spirit of power,- but or
unity and love. It is this that we min- .
later, evangelists and Christian' work
ers need and that the whole church,
needs in order to accomplish her mis
sion toe Jesoa Christ on earth.
How may the fillings of the Holy "
Spirit be received by the believer on
tbe Lord Jesus Christ T t Prayer, obe
dience and faith seem to be the only
conditions. If they may be called con- .
dltlon. Speaking of faith, there Is a
sense in which the gift of the Holy
Spirit L eu, the filling of the Holy
nite an act on our part as that
by which we laid hold of , salvation
through Jesus Christ; but this faith
the Holy Ghost to them that obey
him," Pter says (Acts V.), and thi
agrees perfectly with the teaching cf
the Old Testament In Proverb? I.: '
