firm. riiu ww -
ward In answer to the revivalist's
Invitations and pledged themselves
to lead better lives.
Mr .Culpepper again chose one of
the old revival texts for his dis
course: "The way of the transgres
sor Is hard.-' He appeared to throw
more earnestness Into his remarks
and sent- his mesnaue home with an
effectiveness that got results.
He launched his sermon with a re
cital of the first transgressions In the
garden of Kden and depicted In
graphic words the effort of father
Adam and mother Kve lo hide from
(iod when He eoiiRht them after
they had sinned.
"Yon Can't Kool iot!."
"You can '00J your wife, you run
fun your children, you can fool your
neighbors, you can double-cross the
world, but you can t get away from
Ood," he exclaimed
Adam, he declared, was the first
woman suffragist. He hid behind
a woman s skirts to avoid respond
ulIU for hta sin. "I don t Ilka these
LlixJe-Julla-Mlnnle kind of women
who try to us a woman aa an ex-
cuss foe their . transgressions," said
he. "If I had been Adam I would
have stepped up and taken my medi
cine like a man."
Hcllcvcs In Old-Tlmc llcll.
Although he discarded the old
time "crying repentance" Hunday
night, the evangelist a atlll a 100 per
tent believer In the old-time hell
with Its "bottomless pit" am) Its
"burning lake of fire and brimstone'
and he brought It Into action last
night to give his appeal more effect.
Ity way of explanation rather than
apology he declared that he could
not sacrifice the favor of Ood for the
favor of men, and' while he wanted
ni. nr t,iI. .... n
rate the teaching of the Wble In or
der lo get It. Bo he proceeded to
give 'em hell! '
Tonight's sermon, he announced
Inst night, has been one of the most
effective he carries In his repertoire
and another great crowd la expected.

Senator Chamberlain of Oregon,
author of the measure, announced
later that in view of the president's
attitude be would not press the bill
and that further hearings on It by
the military committee would be
postponed indefinitely. Itefore the
letter reached Sem4,4r Overman.
Senator Hrandegee of Connecticut,
Kepubllcan. hud bronchi the subject
before the senate with u resolution
Instructing the Judiciary committee
to give a formal opinion upon the
legality of the bill, which he de
nounced as unconstitutional and
containing "heinous" proposals. The
Connecticut senator declared his In
tention of culling the resolution up
for a vote tomorrow and If he does
there probably will be a lively dis
cussion In spite of the fact that con
gressional leaders generally consider
the Chumberlnln hill dead.
Another feature of the day's de
velopment was the publication nf a
letter from Attorney-General Greg
ory to Itepresentatlve Gordon of
Ohio repudlatlnK the action of for

Charles Warren of 'Hoston, who
drafted the Chamberlain bill and
urged Ite passage. Mr. Gregory said
Mr. 1 Warren acted without his
knowledge and that If he had known
anything uhoiit the bill he would not
have permitted It to go to congress
from his department.
Mr. Warren resigned last week
soon after the attorney-general
lisnird about his activities In connec
tion with the proposed legislation.
