Able Discourse Last Nisrht by Rev. B C Matthews of At kansaw. Trinity church was well filled last night by Christian pe.iple of various denominations aod other- to her Rv. B C. Matthews, of At kansaw, pre-ch 'he evening discourse bef re the New Maxico onfirence H;s tiime the disobeiient prophet. The toxt was. "And when he was gone, a lion met him by the way and slew him; and his carcis-i was cast in the way." I Kings XIII:2I. The speaker gave an historical resume of God's dealing with the J ews until the time of their revolt under the tyrannical rein of Reboboam, son of So'omon. The ten tr.b.scho-e Jeroboam son of Nebat for their leade-, made their headquarters a'. Sne hem and went off into idolatrv. "hea the preacher said in part: God aid his hands on a prophet and told him to go to Bethel and cry against te altar, with the express command neither to eat brerd or drink water ia that city, nor return by tba way he entered it. As the prophet sto d and cried agaicst the attar, Jero boam called out for some one to iay hfld on the prophet, whereupon as Jeroboam stood with outstretched arm of command, th Lord withered his arm. Then the affrightened king called out to the man of God to have the Lord he'il his arm. The prophet did so, and the withered arm was re tored. Then Jeroboam invited the prophet to go home and dine w it'a him and receive a reward. But the prophet remied, "Not for half of ihy kingdom " Afterward he went out of the city by another road. However, he was over taken by a false prophet, who prevailed upon the traveler to return to Bethel ind eat and drink. Ihen Lrod forced the real spirit nf prophesy on the prophet and told him that becaus3 he hatl disobeyed, his carcaes should not come to tbe sepulohur of bis fathers. vv un in is terrioie message ringing in his ears, the disobedient prophet went forth, ard a lion found hiin in tbe way and slew hi,m. The speaker further; sid, I have re peated this history in order that we may look at. ti e prophe". in and out of the road of du'y. In the first place. while In 'he roidof duty he stood alone, so far as humanity i concerned, but God was with hm. A 1 true disci- e-s of the Lord travel this lonely roa.3. Jesus trod 'h wine press alone, ani the servant is n t ab ve his master. There was a tiiua when even Christ was popular, but popularity is as fleel- ag as the dew drop that glisteas o i the blade of grass. One day the peo ple shou'ed. Hostnnah! antl the next day, Crucify him! In the garden of Geshsemene Jerus was alone, for -they I all forsook him and lied. He went to tbe cross ajone, and like a lamb led be- fore its shearers, so openei he not his mouth. But when he hung upon the the cros it app ared that God forgooir ! him, and he ciei "My God: My Gcd; Why hast thou forsaken m V Ail great . men who have moved the world see this j thought One of our poets in his adiress n wav.-r rowi tnrew out mis I iiJei, "He who from zone to z me guides ' thue in th' tie unerring lligbt, in thi i long road 1 must travel a'cn , will j iuidi- tuy stops arignt. ' t'uui wni e preaching in Asia said, "'AH men fo:- soolt me, nevertheless Christ st od by me. ' So the lonely hour will oome. the critical period will arrive to every true idisc'ple -of iCht-ist. In the s cond place, the prophet meets organized opposition. Here were t: n tribes with priests from the lowest o-d :r of the people and Jero boam ready to offer iucensa to the go!den calves. The man of God merts this organized f rce; and so ev.y Christian in the rod of du'y meets or- raniz d forces of satan. 'Paul givrs an idea of the Organizal iou of the king- dom of Belz-'bub when he said, put o,i-i the who o a in r of God that yo m iy'e withstand the wiles of the devil For ! we retie lol fgtinst nesh and hloo.l, but again-it priucipaliti -s and powers, against the r;ilers of da-kness of this wi rl !. aid t-pi-iu il wickedness in high places Here is organization. Principalities are re presented by Beelzebub on bis throne. I The powers are represented by delegated autnority and the rulers of darkness, and then there is spiritual wickedness in high p aoes. No man can fight this warfare unless he puts on tbe whole armor of God. This i-s il- iuetrated in Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress where the Christian equipped for war met Apollyon. The arch fiend spread himself across the way with yells and threateningly told Christian to prepare to die. Christian thought to turn back, but remembered be had nothing to protect his bock. So ohna tlan.went ahead, and came off victor ioi s. , In the third place,' in the road of duty, the prophet was protected When he cried again -t tbe altar, and the king stid 1 iy hold on him, God laid hold on the king himself and withered hlo arms So God protects all who remain in tbe path of duty. Ibis was also illustrated when tbe heathen king sent to Dothan to take Elisha for revealing his plans to the king of Israel. When the Eervant of Elisha went out early that morning ne saw the wo jds full of horses and chariots Then he exclaimed, Alas, j3j master, how shall we do.J El sba rep ied kfep your equil brium. Thev who be for us are greater than they who be against us. Then El'sha asked God to oren the spiritual eyes of his servant that he might see, and the eyes of tbe young man were opened so that he saw the mountains full of invincible forces, chariots of fire. b vmrthly, out of the road ot duty we find tbe prophet under tbe shade of an oak where he had stopped. This was a i-a 1 experience for him. and we find it fin ly illustra'ed in the Pilgrim Pro gress where Christian stopped in th? arbor on the hill of difficulty and falling into sinful slumber, he lost bis roll At the top of the bill he met Timorous and Mistrust wbo cried out,"Tbe lions! The lions! ' Then Christian bethought him of the roll to gather encourage ment therefrom, and finding it gone, remembered his sinful sleep so be bad to retrace his steps to the arbor where he found the document laying under the s?at whire he had dropped it. He had just time before dark to reach the portals of the palace Beautiful. pas;. the lions whom be found chained Agiin, we hnd tne prophet eating un lawful bread. This is where satan gets a majority of the'pople through neir appetites That is the way he got Adam: that is the way the de vil tried to catch Christ, and failed, in advisirg tt at stones be made breid That is the way he got at Etau wbo for a mess of pottage sold his birth lght. God did not protect ne prophet out or tte l'ne of duty; but while in that road the Lord withered the king s arm when the latter dared to offer violence Hell is full of pscple who were caught out f the road of duty; and were it not for inconsistency with h's laws, Ged's ereat heart would hurl Beelze bub off bis throne and save all hell Butit n imp issible to save mm out f the pita of duty, out of tbe kings lgb way. The session of this morning opened witathe customary prayer meetin Most of the morning was taken up with ircussion as to qualifications of candi- ates for admission into the ministrv. The case of B. B. Scoggios occasioned considerable debate, aid it resulted iu the dropping of Mr. bcog?ins from the regular ministry as his qualifications were not acceptable to the conference Mr. Scjoggins made a spirited defense, He has ben in tbe itinerancy a number of years. Supernumerary relations were anted to Rev. Thomas Hodgson at his own request. Rev. W. F. Foulks of Albuquerque, aid Rav. Edward Lebreton were admitted to the mini try. Rv. B. E. Terrell of Cooks, N, M.. was presented for admission, but the conference was not safsfied with bis qualifications, and the applicali n was declined. The fol'owing apportionments to various city pulpits were made for the morrow: Trinity Bishop Duncan at 11:00 a. m.; Rav. C. J. Oxley at 7:30 p. m.; Ep worth League rally at 3:00 p. m. Presbyterian Rev. B. C. Mat thews at 11 :00 a. m.; Rev. Dr. Suther land at 7:30 p. m. First Methodist Rev. w. E. Foul ks at 11:00 a. m.; Rev. T. L. La! lance at 7:30 p. m. Baptist Rav.

A. Govett at 11 a. m.; B H ScoggiDS at 7:30 p tn. A marked feature of the session was the charge to the newly admitted preachers, Revs. G.ladney, Fouiks and Le Breton by Bishop Duncan. The bishop was not at all well and deliver ed the charge under difficulties. How ever, he said: Brethren, I have seen tome preachers who were very dog matic and aggressive: who knew more than their fathers or children. Don't examine the bible to find what you want to knoav. But read it to find wha". is in t. You ought to be and must re studious to bend y urself in the right direction. We know a great mny things partially; but we ought to know the word of God thoroughly and give to It the best hours of tbe day. You must be pastors; but at the sime time your paetoral work must not iuterfrre with the time given to studying G: d'a word. When you have studied four or five hours a day you have studied about as much as an average man cin study in twenty four hours. Study systematically. You can give fme to your pastoral work. and nave time at nome at cignito at- tend to the wan's of your families, S -rae preachers don't stay enoagh with their wives and children, they are not enougn at nomo. iet some good maa lead evening meetings other ti:a:i the regular weeaiy and Sunday meet ings, while you stay" at home with j wives and children. Some preachers are a', work every night and let their i children go to the djvil. Stay at home ' more and read to the wife aod children. ! S 'tne men are so anxious to save oib- ; ers that they lose s'giit of their own. i j No" only hi studious, but b i industri-' ' ous in other ways. A Methodist preach- ; &r canno' aff jrd to be lazy. Be willing ! j to work in any way as your services are r. quired. I have been in charge : oi a cnurcn wnere i rang the bell in addition to preaching. Don't be asham- lto do any kind of work. Glorify your Lord. B 3 industrious and faith iful in your work. Tomorrow will beabu v day in the way of pleaching, and on M indav the app liutmeuts are expected to be given out. . . AFTER BRYAN'S SCA' P. The Republicans Trying to Carry Nebraska. FIGHTING GREAT ODDS. It Looks a Forlorn Hope But the Ee- publicaus Will Make Extra Effort to Defeat the Silverites in Nebras ka, to Give Bryan a BJack Eye. WASHiXGTON.October 2. Although the election in Nebraska this year is only for tbe judge of supreme court, yet great interest ia manifested in the result by the administration and its backers. Could the republicans secure ' a victory, even in this apparently off year, it would be a source of intense satisfaction to the president, cabinet and na'ional chairman, Mark Hanna in particular. Nebraska being the home of Bryan, that gentlemen would get a blackeye. The-e is "a complete fusion between democrats, populists and silver republicans in Nebraska. rhe republican are runningja straight ticket and tbe gold democrats have pus out a ticket, their prominent no minee being Hon. J. Sterling . Morton. The best posted men believe the gold democrats will not poll over 5,000 votes in Nebraska, hence they will cut no figure. Leading republicans do not hesitate to say that if the republicans can win, Hanna and tbe president will be delighted. They regard Bryan as the dqos. dangerous man tbe party has and defeat in his own state is wanted badly. Senator Thurston assured Han na that with the proper exertion Ne braska can be redeemed, but friends of Air. .Bryan think be is watching the opposition closely, and tbe republicans will not catch his party napping.
