It was a Christmas sermon all the way
through. There v.'creJiniJi.raUons from
Dickeiib's"ChrstinasCan)ls," suggestions on
what th- day does not-m"an and good
advice on how to apply Christmas in daily
life. He said:
"I hrve been thinking? much for Hi
past few days hat a hnppy change would
come over this giand old world of curb
grand despite all the tiouble and sorrow
which a residence in it involvs if only
this spirit of Christmas which has been
bringing so much gladness into millions
or homes during the week that has just
passed could only be carried into all the
activities of our daily lire, and thiough all

the authority or ll.o Great A c-tle ror tay
ing that ir any man hae not tre spirit
of Clmst he is none of His. This places the
Chritt spirit sboe all dogmatic I elief , all
zeal for the church, allexternals of heno.o
Icnce. alnifgUiug and everything of the
sort, andpionounces the sentence ofeco u
munication upon eery man who, in the
daily concerns of life, is ruled by the spirit
of seirishuess, cf avarice, or gieed. And
this'accouls perfectly with that sjilen-lid
panegyric or Paul onthesupremaey oi'Jove.
Though one be gifted with eloquence that
is seemincly angelic and ha e not love he is
as sounding brass ir as clanging cymKil.
So one may be great as a teacher an-1 so
mighty in laith as to moe tl,e mount iln-,
and yet be count'-d aJTimthlng if he Ifa e
not love. He may give all his goods to -'ced
the poor and ccn give his body to Je
burned, ami vet ir leiris at tie ioct of it
all, if love is not the moving spirit, it
profitcth him nothing.
Dr. I ent talked of what this spirit
would dc iu ih3 business world. "It ,v uld
do away completely with all aiitngoi'-sni
and strife, ail the rierce competitions
and ungenerous rivalries or our present
social state No man will wish to "Cii.'olt
or despoil IiIr neighbor. No one will ne
willing to gain through another's los-'.
Under the present regime each has to pro

every other. He has no one to guar 1 pirn
against loe but hlms-lf. Under the regl ue
of the Christmas spirit there Is none to
"The business world is tcdaj moving
rapidly, though unconsciously, in the di
rection of the very methods which the
Chrhtmas spirit would adopt should it
come to the thione. The movement is not
due to tlie presence or power of this
spirit, but to a growing perception of the
destructive and dangerous .qua racier of
the competitive method, ami the absolute
nccc-sliy of pooling Issues aud acting to
gether -as a means of self protection. As
yet, self-interest on tlie purely material
plane Is the chief factor iu the move
ment toward co-operation. When men iu
the samr line of business rind themselves
hard pressed by competition, and railUc
that success is probable only to the fe w of
greatest ability and largest resources, and
that failure and ruin are as certain as
death to the many of less ability and
smaller means, self-lnteiest prompts at
once to some union of rorces with a -iew
ti augment the chances of success.
"Those combinations being foimed only
by sclt-lntctest and without any regard
even for otlieisin their line, only the few
who arc th2 stiongest and most formidable
rivals of each other aie invited to enter
the combination. This we may call class
co-operation. Despite the selfishness of
this plan, the knowledge that the inteie.st
of cacli is the interest of all cannot fail
In the long run to have some educ itioual
value In carrying tlie members of this
combination forward to a peiccption or
the necessity even fioni the standpoint
of sell -Intei est though not the lower
seli-interesl wholly for -i wider inclusive
co-operative movement. Already the
business 1 tains of this nation and of the
world have come to u-alizc the necessity
of some mc-asuieof organised co-opeiation.
The movement is in the older of a normal
evolution and must, In the nature of things,
go f oi waul, becoming wider and wider
in its scope until the whole body of the
people shall shaie in the benefits of
universal Co operation."
With such a co-operation, Dr. Kent said,
the whole bodv of society would realize
the importance of every irtembor, and the
duty of securing to each the 'idlest pos
sible opportunity for the use ami devel
opment ol all special gifts together with
such just anil equitable distribution of
the common product as would wipe out
poverty and the misery which it brings.
"Competition implies antagonism -)f in
terest: co-operation, identity of interest.
We speak today of the social body. Eut
under our present system the term is ,a
misnomer. We are not organized as a
body, li a Lody every member has its
place and functions in relation to thp
whole, and the interest of one is as sacredly
guarded as the intercut of another. The
lire or the body is the life or all Its parts.
No single member can be sacrificed with
out injury to the whole. Tlie competitive
regime denies the whole theory oT social
unity. The individual lire can only bb
promoted at the expense of others.
"All iniquity and injustice vm iM
be done away witli speedily were tlie
spirit of Christ inns once to t'ake real and
permanent control of our Industrial af
fairs, lrlvate ownership ,iu laud would
be abolisled. Private control or public
franchises ol every sort would be done
away. No individual would lie allowed to
enrich himself at the public expense.

Alexandria, Dec- 26. Walker Wegging
ton, colored, employed as a fireman on tlie

in tlie breast last. night, and but for the
prompt attention ot Dr. O'Brien would
have died from loss of blood. Lewis Car

at the house of Matilda Poindexter, on
Wilkes street, and when he went home
last night he found Weggmgtou at the
house. Both men were drunk, and were
soon engaged iu a controversy, which
terminated in Carrington whipping out hH
knife and plunging tlie blade into the
breast of 'his rival. Weggington was
removed to his borne, on Fayette street, be
tween King and Cameron, and a companion
hurried to the office of Dr. Purvis and
requested that he attend the injured man.
The messenger refused to give the name
of the man cut, or the circumstances-connected
witli the case, and the doctor di
rected him to have the injured man re
moved to the iniiruiary ror treatment.
Subsequently, Dr. O'Brien was called to
attend Weggmgtou. The cutting was re
ported by Policeman Young today, aud
tins afternoon Policeman Roberts lo
cated tlie wounded man, and learned the
facts in connection witli tlie case.
