The Methodists are the strongest religi

nearly all belong t the southern organiza I
tion of that church The northern branch
organized churches and conferences in the
Southern States soon after the war and
still maintains them but they have never
made much headway The Northern
Methodist church is very rich and there
are evidences that it intends to make large
investments in the south I has completed
plans for the establishment of a highgrade
school at Bluff ton Ala to be known as the
TJniversity of the Southland The city has
donated in lands and money 500000 to the
enterprise and Dr Mann who is at the
head of the movement says 1500000 will
be expended on the main building which

As already announced the archbishop of
Paris has issued instructions to his clergy
commanding them to condemn the practice
of cremation which he regards as the
triumph of materialism over religious
spiritualism M Ernest Renan thinks
that this pastoral letter is in conformit
with true Christian doctrine He points
out that the great dread o the early Chris I
tians was lest their bodies should be torn
by the wild beasts or burned after their
death For myself adds M Renan as
I do not believe in the resurrection of the
body as the dogma of the church describes
it matters very little to me in what way my
body may be disposed of when I am dead I
Whether it be burned or buried or con
sumed by the birds of the air or the beasts
of the field is to me a matter of the most
complete indifference My objection to 1
cremation is that it must be very painful
t the feelings of the survivors Burial is I
sad enough but how much sadder is burn
The very first fat mentioned I the his
tory of man is a compendium of the whole
of spiritual science human and divine
And God created man in his own image
What a pity that agnostics and evolution
ists do not credit that first grand truth
The nature the
character the dispositions
of God are no longer a mystery to the man
who knows that he himself is spiritually
an image of God His own soul is a mirror
in which he sees face t face the image of
the Creator What he is God is That is i
what he is by his original nature as created
not as defaced and corrupted by sin His
sense of justice his benevolence his
truthfulness his paternal instinct
patrna instnc even
his filial instinct his sense of beautYI
whatever in his soul he may have of good
is an exact counterpart of the same qual
itya God In fact we might perhaps say
that the only difference between man in his
depraved nature and God i that God is in
finite while man is finite What difficulty
then can there be in seeing and knowing
God almost a Moses didface to face
Evolutonist too would find in the same
significant and controlling fact a nobler and
more glorious explanation of the origin of
mankind No evolution of matter can pro
duce the living image of God for God is
not matter and matter is not spirit Even
though we might imagine that a gradual
process of evolution is implied when it is
sad And the Lord God formed man of
the slime of the earth yet this was only
the animal man and the next step was
clearly an act not of evolution but of
original creation And breathed into his
face the breath of life and man became a
living soulEx

The Eeacling of M Haraiicourts
Mystic Poem
I Enthusiastically Received Some Very
Strong and Dramatic ScenesBow dyism
and Cries of Assez de Christ
Special t THE HERALD Examiner Dispatch
PARIS April 5By cable to the New
York HcraldJLa Passion a mystic
poem in six parts by Edmund Harancourt
was read at the Cirque dHiver last night
by Sarah Bernhardt Phillippe Gamier
and M Bremant Leamereauxs orchestra
executed selections from Beethoven and
Wagners prelude to Parsaval the
motive of which from the scene I
sympathizing with the Saviours utterance
Eat this bread it is my flesh drink
this wine it is my blood was enthusias
tically applauded I was just before the
prelude that Mme Bernhardt robed in
white flowered brocade looking exactly
one of Albert Deers paintings of the
Virgin Mary entered the salle followed
by MM Gamier and Bremont attired i
in evening dress to interpret the
roles of Christ and Judas Iscariot
The enormous auditorium of the Cirique
d Hiver was crowded to its utmost capa
city 4000 persons being present
The poem is a sort of mystic representa
tion of Ecce Homo The Virgil is a
woman in whom all her natural instincts
and love for her son are in conflict with
her religious awe and devotion to the vice
gerent o God Sarah Bernhardt read the
lines l exhorting Christ to fly and save him
self from torture and crucifixion with an
Impassioned i yet subdued force that
caused profound emotions The audience
appreciated this and shouts of Bravo
Brovo 1 and round after round of applause
burst forth when M Gariner read the lines
of Christ as he drove the moneychangers
out of the temple and M Bremont pro
nounce the mocking retorts of Caiphas
the high priest Some of the youngsters
I the gallery made a scandalous demon
stration in favor of the principles adduced
by the publicans and two or three butcher
boys i yelled out Hurrh for the publicans
They are better than our bookmakers at
As M Gamier pronounced tho words
of the Savior calling little children to him
and exhorting to charity and repentance
two i or three voices shouted Assez de
Christ i assez de Christ The audience
rose to their feet with excitement and
cheered and applauded the actors
men in the premiere seats of the
parquet the fashionable portion of the
house shook their fists at the butcher
boi sand the men who had interrupted the
performance and demanded that police
should put them out of the house A la
porte a lajporte resounded on all sides
and the excitement was tremendous M
Gamier with difficulty made himself
heard as he shrieked Ladies and gentle
men do you wish the reading of the poem to
continue or not It not we will withdraw
Oui oui oui continuez was heard
from a parts of salle mingled with a few
shouts of Non non
Mme Bernhardt trembled with emotion
and pressed a dainty handkerthief to her
eyes and wept There was a perfect pan
demonium Nothing could be heard until
M Harancourt the author bowed down
to the platform where the actors were
seated and shook them all warmly by the
hand and facing the tempestuous audience
shouted with stentorian voice The actors
will pause a few moments to enable those
persons who are discontented to retire
1 Harancourt was cheered loudly with
shouts of Bravo Harancourt bravo
bravo Then by the aid of the police
some thirty or forty pf the discontented
left cirque
This lively and agitating scene had now
lasted half an hour Sarah Bernhardt and
her fellow actors were pale and nervous
but the audience with the stormy element
now eliminated shouted Continuez con
tinuez Then the reading commenced
again and was deservedly r applauded
M Harancourts versification is excel
lent It is resonant and thoroughly dra
matic The scene between Judas and the
Pharisee who bribes him is very strong
That between the Savior and the Virgin
just before the crucifixion is very dra
matic and is represented with scenery
and stage mechanism are arranged with
open air accessories as at Oberammergau
would be most effective
The Herald correspondent met Sarah
Bernhardt in the lobby just as she was
leaving the cirque She was rather nerv
ous at the movements she had just passed
through but more eager than ever to in
terpret La Passion with all the cos
tumes abd requisite scenery
M Edmund Harancourt the author of
La Passion is one of the most talented
of the younger French poets EJesaid
We wanted very much to have the r
piece interpreted in costume appropriate I
scenery and all the stage mechanism neces
sary for such a drama The authorities
however were inexorable and all
that could be al
obtained was
permission to give a reading ol Ihe play in
costume de vie I is a curious coinci
dence that all of 1 Harancourts
uncles and there were eight of
them were in holy orders Most
of them perished in the performance of
their duties as Roman Catholic mission
aries in China Burmah and Brazil but one
them survived is now in Bishop G Thibel

Sir Samuel BSiers Views on Africa
LONDON April 5Sir Samuel Baker the
wellknown African explorer has written
a letter to the Time indicting the British
government for a policy which he de
clares has led to the los of all the posi
tions gained in Africa by enterprising and
individual Englishmen He justifies the
alliance between Emin and Wissmann and
says it was only natural that Emin should
join the German government expedition
which will never imitate tho fatal
of the English force advancing only example to re
treat Sir Samuel points out how the Ger
mans may in a few months regain the
equatorial province by founding a station
at Victoria nyanza and forming an alliance
with Myangu King of Uganda thus
eventually securing control of the White
Nile at Gondokoro while Italy will Whit
master of the situation

rious efforts hand been vainly made by the

Astigmatism which is the inability to see
lines running in different directions
equally distinct is the principal cause of r
defective sight and by far the most annoy
ing and is only detected and corrected by
a specialist thoroughly acquainted and I
practiced in the application of the scien
tific tests In such cases not only must t
special lenses be provided but they must
also be mounted just the proper way as
the same lenses fitted any other way will
be positively hurtful r
Dr G W Tibbits the occulist and aurist
of 10 East First South street is very suc ti i

with all the scientific tests and lie is thor

Influence Felt
Introducing Simplicity the MOle of Liv

Give Opinions on Important Matters
BERLIN April 5Copyright 1890 by the
Now York Associated Press Tho events
of the week have accentuated even more
than the resignation of the chancellor the
new era of the German history Until his
actual departure the public were loath to
believe that the Emperor was in earnest in
parting with Bismarck Henceforth his
attention will be divided between Freid
ricksruhe and Berlin the center of the
new and untried ime I is impossible
that the Emperor could have been an un
affected spectator of the unending tributes
of admiration and respect that poured in
upon his discarded minister I is also re
ported today that he has again refused to
consent to the publication of Bismarcks
letter of resignation The public still de
dine to believe that the retirement of Bis
marck is final it being urged that he is by
five years the junior of Gladstone and that
he may still count on a decade of activity
The Car tellers hae offered to resign two
seats in the reichsta in favor of Bismarclc
but it is certain the exchancellor and his
son will not accept them at present The
Emperor having declared he will recognize
but two partiesthose for and against him
he will be likely to disregard conventional
party divisions and seek assistance in a
LiberalClerical coalition Thus Bismarck
in the event of entering the reichstag
might seem to be in the unusual position of
the nominal if not actual leader of the op
position The opening of the reichstag and
the royal speech are awaited with the keen
est interest Dr Windthorst claims three 1
indispensable concessions in return for his I
support of the government The return
of all religious orders religious teaching
in the schools and the removal of tho dis
cretionary and revocable character from
all concessions made to the Catholic party
The Centrists are well aware of the
strength of their position and intend to
derive every possible advantage there
According to the National Zeitung the new
military bill provides for a permanent in
crease of 16000000 marks in the annual ex
penditures For the moment colonial
affairs overshadow foreign politics Von
del Heydt the financial backer of the East
Africa company recently declared that i
Bismarcks departure was the sign of a I
new and energetic colonial policy Reich

that it is of the utmost importance to se
cure possession of Tabora which place is
further inland than Mpwapwa This and I
the strengthening of the treaty footing in I

inquiry in the most reliable quarters to be
the sole objects the EminWissmann ex
pedition Emin has advised the conclusion
ofa treaty with Bevanaheri in order that
his assistance may be secured in advance
for the Germans The exact scope of the
expedition is not yet known but it is cer
tain however that the Emperor will de
cline to consent to the adoption of any cob
nial policy antagonistic to England During
the visit of the Prince of Wales the Em
peror did everything possible to show the
value he attached to I close friendship be
tween the two nations
The Emperors solicitude regarding the
army is further shown in an imperial order
published today to the effect that in view
of its
incompleteness the reserve infantry
military officers system hitherto pursued
which provided that the officers must come
from the ranks of the nobility must be lex
tended so as to include those noble by
character in order that the sons of honor
able middle class families may hold ap
appointments in the army The same rules
also apply to the civil service and the Em
peror further disapproved of the holders of
commissions being dependent upon the
private income of aspirants and therefore
decrees that their pay be increased 1
At much length he enjoins the
commanders to set an example of >
selfsacrifice to officers and check
indulgences in unnecessary luxuries and
habjts naming costly presents and the giv
ing of frequent banquets etc In conclu
sion the Emperor desires that lists of as
pirants betsubmitted to him together with
the names of officers who do not conform
to the rule to preserve a simpler mode of

Bismarck to Give His Opinions
Special to TIE HERALD Examiner Cable
LONDON April 5Almost concurrently
with the decision of the
wih new German
chancellor Count von Caprivi to abandon
the practice of furnishing official inspira
tion to the utterances of
certain journal 1 s
tind to place respectable newspapers on the
same footing in regard to the publication
of political information
informaton comes the an
nouncement that Prince
Bismarck has con
sented to publicly l >
ublcly express his opinions on
political and other important questions at
frequent intervals through the press As
the exchancellor was the chief
exponent of inspired journalism
in Germany during his official career
himself furnishiug all of the inspiration
that was of interest to the world it would
seem that Von Caprivis decision is likely
to have little influence in shaping new de
partures On the contrary it may be
safely assumed that what Prince Bismarck
may write over his signature will be more
widely read than anything that has ever
appeared unsigned in an inspired news
paper presumably at his behest I appears
quite plain that Bismarck as exchancellor
side will be a very sharp thorn in the Kaisers
