Dr. Ttdmage, of llrooklyn. preached to a vast
audience yesterday morning In tho Third
Presbyterian Church, one of tbo largest re
ligious edifices In Chicago. The ordinary seat
ing capacity of tbo church, when comfortably
lull. Is about ",f>oo. Kvery seat was taken yes
terday morning on tho main Hour and In tho
pottery, while tho aisles around tho sides of
both, and portions cf thu aisles leading down to
the pulpit, were packed with Her* of people
xvho were perforce* content with standing-room,
since sitting-room was altogether out of tho
question. Tho door* of tho andloneo-rooni,
opening on tho vestibule and tbo gallery step*,
were loft open, nnd both vcstlbulo and stairs
were packed and jammed with hundreds on
hundreds of other patient one*, glad enough,
apparently, oven to he within hearing distance.
Thu whole scene was a forcible reminder of tho
similar reception accorded tho Hey. Henry Ward
llecchor some two or three year* ago at Plym
outh Congregational Church on tho South
Hide. When It Is added tbat fully a thousand
people—perhaps more —surged up against iho
Irani door long after tho house wa* full, unable
to get even ono fool inside, tho reader will Imvo
some Idea of tbo sizo ol Hie crowd which massed
yesterday morning from all section* of the city
lor tho purpose of hearing tho famous llrooklyn
divine. Those who failed In tholr purpose wero
uf course greatly disappointed, out that disap
pointment will be pomewhnl tempered with sat
isfaction when thoy look Into Tim TitinuNß this
morning and read what they wero unable yes
terday to hour.
Tin: OHKAT PULPIT ORATOIt
from tho City of Churches has not grown per
ceptibly older since lie was last In Chicago. Tho
pi eminent nose, tho bald forehead, the sbuul
dcr-of-mutton side-whiskers, and tho cleanly
shaven chin and upper lip have not changed,
hut nre as prominent facial ehamtlcrlstles ns
ever. If anybody looked lor any/-degree of
special animation or gestlculnUou yesterday
morning he must have been greatly disap
pointed. lloyond a deal of walking aerusa thu
Imlplt platform and twice or thrlco clapping
ils minds to enforce u bit of emphasis on some
. especially prominent point in thu discourse,
there was nothing in the ilrooklyu preacher s
actions to distinguish him from thu average
earnest mid Intensu expounder of thu
Gospel, There has lieon an ap
parent tonlng-down of late years, mid
tdl that remains is tho now somewhat harsh ami
now melting peculiarities of voice, tho sumo old
ilmuS'igor and earnestness, the same abhorrence
mid detestation of .byiioerlti.v and sham, thu

the venerable Dr. William llecehur marched up
tho pulpit stops and was given u chair at Tal
mage’s right. Tho well-known black sknll-ean
was soon adjusted to the equally well-known
bald head, mid tho Chicago member of tho
Lcechor family sat hack In his chair the picture
of content. Whether he chanced his mind, how
ever, and longed lor a seat on Iho iiUwh-rovered
sofa, the fact remains that he bmi not nut still
very long before ho. gut up. shoved
tho chair along tho platform, ami. with
nioro noise than grace, handed It over tho rail
ing tun lady in corkscrew curls who was stand
ing below, whereupon, amidst tho andlhio smiles
of the audience, he sat down alongside of Tal
mage, where ho remained during iho rest of tho
services.
TIIB ONLY UNUSUAL t'KATl’ltti

of three little children—a ceremony which Till

the prayer, Dr. Talmagu stepped to the desk,

My text speaks uf a great metropolis, tho ex
istence uf which many have doubted. There
ban been a vast migration into tbut city, but no
emigration from It mi far as onr natural uye
sight can descry. ” Thoro is no such city,” says
the unduvoutastronomer. “I have stood In a
high tower, and with u mighty telescope 1 have
swept thu heavens, ami 1 have seen spout on tho
sun and caverns In thu mmm, hut no massive
walls, no shining street, no palaces have arisen
on mv vision. Thoro is no such city.” A great
many people have nearly Joined in this theory
by saylug that all the lllble descriptions of
Heaven aratlgurotlvc, that Heaven Isnotu Place
of physical organisms, but a great fact
—nothing but a spiritual taut. Tuey may be
right, and they may be wrung, lit opposition
to the theory 1 often hear presented. I ipudo
tho words of Christ, un i lie ought to know:
“I uo to prepare”—a theory? No. “1 go to

condition? No. “ 1 go to prepare a i»laee for

implies this. If my foot Is to Ikj resurrected irom

my hand Is to be reformed In the Hcsurrccllon,
it must have something to handle, if my eye

at. Your opposing theory scouts to Imply that
thu resurrected body is to be hung cm

Kvery palace, every lordly park, has an orna

Inscribed beautiful sentiments upon tlio gales.
, The Muslim in-cribed a beautiful sentiment
from tho Koran on the mites. Toeplo In old
times had beautiful inscriptions upon the
gates, but all the miles -of earth are
nothing ns compared with the gates
of Heaven. Christ set . Ills hand to
tho work. With Iho imll of Ills own eross He
cut upon it wonderful traceries—stories of past
nntlenng* ami of glories to eomc. O the mite,

Onu step Hits side of Ihu gate we are paupers,

one side of the gale put tho splendors of earthly
beauty: against tbo other Hide of tbo gate put
tho surges of eternal glory. Tho sorrow-struck
of earth, going through that gate, will
find all tears crystallized into this great
pearl. I tmvo sometimes seen chemists
try to analyze a tear, nnd they think
thoy have successfully analyzed a tear when

Oh Heaven Is not u thill place. Heaven Is not
n contracted place. Heaven Is not a stupid
place. There were twelve Kates mm there were
twelve pearls; and they are so near this morn*
lug If von put your hand out you can much
(hem. Vua, they are iieareritian that. Vim can
touch them with your heart-throbs. Oh the
Kate, the uatel I cry upward, mid I tret answer,
••Are you overweary there?”
A voice comes buck saying, "This Is the ever
lasting rest.” . .
•• Are you over sick there?”
Avoicecumes hack saying, “Tito Inhabitant
hero never says, • I am sick.’ ”
•* Have you to toll hard for n livelihood
there?” , , .
A voice comes back Raving, "»o never
hunger, ami we never thirst.”
Oh how near iho place Ist lam not surprised
that tho Christian In his lust moments, catching
n glimpse of tho gale. Is thrilled with It. The
Christian comes down to thu water of death, amt
he wades Into the water of death until tho wave
comes to the ankle, and ho says, “Lord Jesus,
Is this rleath?”
••No,” says Christ, “this is tint.'
And ho still wades down to tho Jordan or
dealii until tho wavu comes to tho knee, and he
says, ” Lord Jesus, Is this death?”
••No." says Christ, "this is not."
And ho wades deeper down into tho Jordan of
. death until tho wave comes to the girdle: and
ho says, ••Lord Jesus, Is this death? lathis
death?”
•• No,” says Christ, ”11119 is not.”
And hu wades down deeper into the wave until
thu billow reaches tho lip, and hu cries, "Lord
tcMis. Is Iliie dentil?”
•• No.” says Christ, ” this is not death.’ ’
lluttthen Christ had seated that soul on a
throne of triumph, and all tho Joy and pmiin of
heaven earno surging to bis feet, then Christ
said: ••This, oh trembling sinner, tills, this is
death.”
Hut I want you, in tho next place, to consider
the number of gates. 1 have noticed that, while
great parks amt King’s estates have one orna
mental gateway—that la about all—tlio others
are very ant to he very ordinary gates. How Is
It with this City of Heaven? Count them. One,
two, throe, four, live, six, seven, eight, nine, ten,
eleven, twelve. Hear It all tho earth and all Iho

brother, if you don't pet in H will he your own
fault, (lod will not keep yon out. Von keep
yourself mil. Now mine Into Iho puiu—eouie
inio any one ol thn twelve pales.
it Is a generous (Jospel—von must admit It—a
penerous (lespel. Christ Is ready to tuko all
who will have Him. On one of the pmil West
ern lakes there was something evil beUdlmra
ship, and U must in' down. There was outboard
a lather—a husband—hud a wife, and a child.
And the ship was soon to sink. And Dm father
said. "Now I will jump overboard, and then you
two will jump after me, and Imn a good,si rung
swimmer, mid I will take yen to the shore."
Ii was a loop way to thu shore. Tho father
leaped Into tho waves, and tho wife and child
leaped niter him; the nne at this shoulder ami
the other at that shoulder, lie was a mlphty
swimmer, am) he pushed out for thnbeaeb. Hut.
oh It was a loop pull; and after a while he round
Ids strenpth failmp. lie found ho could not pet
them all to shore, amt he came to (ho
awful conclusion that ho must leave nne In the
deep, lie fell that his tlrst duty was to uis wife,
and so ho said. "My little child, pood-by. 1
emmet tuko yon. wo will all po down together,
If wo attempt to pot ashore topetner.” So he
pently pushed her away, and, with thu other
burden,—thu wile—clinging to thu other shoul
der, ho swam until he pot Into thu breakers, and
tainted dead away: and ftmn thu shore they
came out ami picked thorn up and brought thuiii
safely to the bunch, It was a pterions thing ho
could save his wife: It was an awful thlnp ho
could not rave his child. Hut mir Christ Is an
J-ilmighiy swimmer, Herat; take to shore father,
mother, husband, wife, son, and danphler. All
thu world he can lake ashore. Lay on Ills

cate, or live pates, or ten pales, but twelve
pates. Oh conic Into tho (Joanel. Vcnr pmit

a man must pet ready (o become a Christian.
That Is not so nr all. .lust as well ho saved this

years alter it may bo too late.
Then them Is a grunt consolation for all peo

that thu departed an* not dead. We aro tho
dead. Wo who toil, wo who weep, wo who sin—
wo aro thu dead. Our departed ones aro
net dead. They havu pnnu throuah

eneo there Is In Heaven from what
U is on earth when a Christian dies. Whoa a
Christian dies, we say on earth, "Close tho eyes.''
In Heaven they say, "(Jive him a palm.'' On
earth wo say, " Let thorn down Into tho pnmml."
In Heaven they say. " Heist thorn ou a throne.”
On earth wo say, " Farewell." In Heaven they
say, "Welcome, woleome."

you,and will Ho not know you? Tho Lord

know that tbvy would know their child. They
said; "After years have passed—a lung while—
wo won't kmw hor. oven If wo should sue her."
Hu, before they loft their enumry—perhaps
for tun years, perhaps furover—tho father
drew UU sword nud made a deep mu
lit tho wrist of tho child, it was n bard thing
fora father to do. Years passed on, and whoa
tho husband and the wife had an opportunity to
go hack to Fniaoe, the one thought was, "Whuru
Is our child?" Tho father wandered up and
down tho laud and examined the wrists of tho
maidens, and alter awhile hu found thu sour and
hu know his child. And oh! what a timo of Joy
It was, and wbut a reunion. And i tell you, my
dour friends,

Umov what mercy Is. Suppose a man wanders

peer man from the Far West camn In amt sat
down sadly and torlorti. At tlio close ho went to
this man and asked him If they could do any
thing for him. Thu man sadly replied no; that
ho had sacrificed his beautiful family to thu
(hirst for strntftr drink, and ho feared (hut his
ease was hopeless. Ho (Hr. Tannage) took (ho
man Into Ids vestry-mom and talked with him,
mid ilnallv went with him to a drug-store and
got him n prescription which would assist him
In hi* paroxysms, in which there was no alcohol,
(living him tho prescription and telling him to
put his trust In tho Lord, ho parted from him.
A tew weeks ago he received a letter from Huston
from (his man, who was now preaching tbo
(lo«pel and temperance to thousands of people.
The Uiispel was right In Its effects. Put It
Into the hands ot a serious soul who had read
the indictment of ten counts—-tho Ten Com
umndmeniH—ho pleaded guilty. Wc wero nut
Jiistliled by works. “Cum • unto mo nil yo that
tabor, and ( will give you rest.” Put it into iho
hand of tho sorrowing. Von thought It was
death that took your child, but it was only tho
Divine Shepherd taking a lamb nut of tho cold.
“Of such Is tho. Kingdom of Heaven." As some
times tho sweetest hurries wore found
on tho sharpest thorns, so some of
tho sweetest consolations of the (Dispel
grow out or Iho sorest atlllutlons. " Put tho
Hllde Into the hands of tho merchant mid hanker.
Ho reads that riches got by fraud u man shall

It gave.
He urged thoyoung men present who had a
mother’s lllble In their trunks to go home and
take It out. amt get on tholr knees, and not
arise until God Inal pardoned thorn for time and
eternity.
He made an earnest appeal to all tho unsaved
to seek Jesus while there was time, and to urge
their <>ss lelales to come. One night, us he stood
listening to tlio strokes of u church clock strik
ing tho Hour, ho thought to himself. •• How Ilia*

With some it was now l o’clock, mid with others
thu bell was fust approaching thu stroke of hi.
God lit His mercy grant thut 12 might not
strike until they had all entered Into (ho hope
of the Gospel!
Dr. Talmago concluded by impressively relat
ing an Incident or a man who had been per
minded by his Christian wlfu to stay in meeting
mid talk about his soul, but who concluded to
opt It off till iniiuhor time. In going homo their
norsu look fright, their buggy was upset, ami
(he nun thrown mu. Ills wife called to him,
"Jehu, urn you hurt?" Afteru pause, ho gasped
out, M Vcs. Mary: Hint was my last chance."
At (ho eomdiision of tho address there was a
brief praise service.
Major Whittle addressed nn earnest appeal
to thu young men present to procrastinate no
longer, but to give ttiolr hearts at once to God.
Twenty-imo years ago, he said, he was a young
mirti ui -h, engaged in an express olliccoiitho
corner of Dearborn ami Lake streets,
mid It hud many times occurred to him
tunc he might to be a Christian, but from
pride, love of sin, or some other cause,
Im had pot come to a decision, when ho received
a letter from n young friend In Ohio stating that
he hail accepted Christ as His Savior, and be
seeching him to do so 100. He rend the letter us
he trim busy receiving money packages, and,
getting off Ids stool, ho went Into the vault with
(ears In his eyes, and prayed to God for grneo to
becoineaChrlsihin. Thai was the bcgliinlogor
his Christian life, mid for twenty-one yodrs
Christ had been very preelonsto him. Tim time
would come In all their lives when they would
have to deelde whether (hoy would combine to
serve (ho Devil unv longer. Ho appealed to
them to make that decision now.
Mr. and Mrs. MeGratml.ua then sung, " Where
Is My imdnrlng Hoy Tonight?"
Dr. Talimigu said tho words of that song had n
wonderful pathos to his soul. When lie was in
thisidty a year ago. ho had with him his buy,
not uuiiu twenty years ago. The Lord took
him wllhmit a second of warning; and all Gin
(Imohehiut been in the elty on tinsoueitHlmi
the memory or that K<n visit Inal always been
present with him. His tiny then said to blm,
on Tuesday night. "I’aim, lain going to give
my soul again to God." He lay down In what
seemed an Inslgnltieant sickness, but on Thurs
day he died. Hu felt what It would Imvo been
lo him IT he had not had Gils assurance Imm
his liny, and also others which' ho round
among Ida papers afterwards, of thu state
of his soul. Ho hoped nod • believed
Ids boy was In Heaven. Hut ibero was one thing
to bo done to cuter Into Heaven, it was what
Gio prodigal son did when he said, •* I will arise
mid go to my father.’* It was not enough to
arise, hut they must go. They must t:ii;o somo
step before they could get Gmro, mid If they did
so God would givo thorn lllsiparilmiing mercy.
A largo number stood up for prayers, ami tlio
proceedings wore brought tu a close with prayer
by Dr. Talmugo.

His Efforts to Secure Better Postal
Facilities for the West
Side.
Wlmtllo Hum to Say About I’ollt,
leal Alatloi'H hi Wash.
ioKtou.
Congressman George It. Davis returned to bli
homo in this cllv Saturday from Washington
and was scon that night by n Tut uune reporter,
to whom he hud something of interest to say re
garding affairs at tho National Capital. As u
well known by tho West-Sldera, Mr. Davie hn
been laboring very assiduously of lute to seem*
A.V ADDITIONAL POSTAL STATION
for tholr uecomimnlailon. Tho only exalting
West Hide station, at tho corner of Washington
ami Hnhied streets. Is. ns Mr. Davis states, two
miles and over from thu reach of tons of thuit.
minds of citizens who live west of tho river, and
ho wants another station established somowttert
hi tho neighborhood nl Madison street and
Itnvno avenuo.
First of all that night tho reported asked Mr.
Duvls what tho prospects were for a sitccessiul
Issue to Ins tabors In this matter of a now pint*!
million. Thu gentleman answered that tbo prm*
peels wero ilia best to Iho world. Said he: ••{
took a petition to Washington that was signed
with mimes enough to reach across the muj,
and this petition I presented to Gin Fust muster*
Gem-nil. He referred It tu Mr. Smith, an aeotit
of tho free delivery system. Now, all of tin-$e
agents are known to bo opposed to increasing
thu number ot stations; they want all tho curd
money put into tho Carrier Department. Mr.
Smith name to Chicago, drove about th«
West Hide a little In a buggy, and
Gum, 41s I supposed he would, reported
that tfu station was wanted. Then I went
to the I’oSliminter-Ueiiernl myself, mid told him
that I wonted tbo petition ivferml tu a mao
who knew something about Chicago and Chica*
go's needs, mid tho result was that the petition
was referred to Special Inspector Stuart of this
city; ami Mr. Stuart will, 1 tun BttihiHcd, report
favorably in the promises."
" Havo you talked with Mr. Stuart yet about
tho 111(11(01'?"
•• 1 have not: but t fed sure that it will all
come out right now."
“ AND AU TO 'IT IK POMTICAL SITUATION
nl Washington—what tin you kaow about
taut?"
•• l know nothing particularly new. Every*
thing delliilt lias been telegraphed to tho papers,
ami so. too, have surmises from nil rpiarters."
“ Then you arc not prepared to suggest names
for n new Cabinet?”
"I certainly anf not. I bad n abort talk with
the President u few days ago. but be bad noth*
nig to say ou politics. Mr. Arthur Is a man who
asks advice when ho wauls It.”
•• Who do you think ho la getting his ml vie#
from Just at present?”
•• 1 don’t know that ho Is getting It from any
one. Ho Is In every way capable of advising
himself. Ho thoroughly understand* the re*
fpnnsihilily of his position and the duties of ids
mllcc, ami It Is my belief that he will discharge
those duties In u maunor satisfactory to lilt
puny and to the people of tho Nation.”
“WHAT AIMMJT CONKLINO
and tho netv Administration?"
••Mr. Moulding and Hen. firant are, without
doubt, as warm frlonds of Mr. Arthur us they
ever were. Hut Mr. Arthur wilt bo the Press
dent—there will be no power behind tho throne.
Crinkling certainly will not go into the Cabinet."
•When rpieslloned as to tho coming orgunlza*
Honor too Senate, Mr. Davis said: "The Uc*
publicans will not consent to a permanent or*
ganlaaihm of the Senate until after Ithode
Island and New Vork arc fairly represented.
They will Insist that a President pro tempura
he chosen tor tho sole purpose of swearing
In tho Senators from Uhmlu island una
New Vork, und that the permanent
organization follow only niter such
action has been taken. There Is precedent far
Kich a proceeding. ami thu Constitution Ucclaroi
that umlur no circumstances shall a Statu be da*
priced of Its fair representation in the Senate.
I bellovc that there are Democrats und hide*
pendents in thu Senate wim take the same view
of the matter, and who will see that thin plan is
carried oat. I believe, 100, that these sumo
reasonable Democrats and Independents will
consent to the election of ullopunllonn tor tho
possible successor of President Arthur and a
Democratic Secretary."
” Have you talked with any of tho Democratic
Senators about It
•• 1 have not, hut I nm satisfied that there are
some of them who will nut In u reasonable man*
tier about tho organization, and It wilt not re*
i)Ulru many.”
