Germany Very Much Put Out
Over the Fact
That France and Russia Secured th
80000000 Chinese Loan
The German Syndicate Will Seek an Ea
tente With the Kngliah Financial
llauir In the Matter of a Good
Share of the Larger Loan
Bfbiin June la The news of the
Franco Russian loan of f8O000000 to
china has proved to be a disagreeable
surprise both to the government and
to the leaders in financial circles who
hail Ixen relying upon official action
to so I r a large share of the Chinese
loan for errnany Immediately upon
receipt of tienewsof the KuMan coup
the members of a German syndicate
Royal Seehandlunfr is the head com
municated with the financial depart
ment of the government upon the
prospects of Germanys securing the
main indemnity loan which will
amount to SiraiOOOOUO or S OOOOOOOO
and negotiations were also resumed by
the syndicate with the London Roth
schilds on the question of the co-operation
of Enjriish bankers in the scheme
The syndicate has received prompt
assurance tnat the government will in
tervene to obtain for Germany a share
in such further financial arrangements
as nine may require As the 880000
000 now guaranteed by Russia covers
only the indemnity to Japan for the
mudli of the Lia Tong peninsula
German linancial houses are confident
that hina must have recourse to them
to float the larper loan which Russia
could not guarantee nor French finan
ciers supply without outside assist
ance The German syndicate with
the approval of the government will
therefore seek an entente with the
Ensrlish financial houses in the matter
of the larper loan
In the meantime the political impor
tance of the Franco Russian arrange
ment is keenly felt and it ts probable
that that loan will not be admitted
into the German and English markets
This at least is the feeling of the syn
dicate which includes in its member
ship the llleiohroeiers the National
bank of Germany Hehren A Sons of
Hamburg Von der Hevdt ft Co the

A Book That Survives All the Spite
Enmity Venom
And Criticism of Karlh anil Hrll Vi 1
llierr Arr Irnplt Who Would Cluing-
lliia Hunk by Rati I-
Da ilt Tsliiiatr llll
Rev Dr Talmage dealt with a sub
ject that is agitating the entire Chris
tian Church at the present moment
viz Expurgation of the Scripture
The text chos n was let Jod lie true
but every mui a li r Romans iii 4
The Bible needs no reconstruct ion
aeoortiiag to some inside and outsde
the pulpit It is mi surprise that the
world bomlianls the Scriptures but it
is auiaing to tind Christ iin ministers
picking at this in the Bible ami deny
ing that until many good cople are
left in the fog about what parts of the
Bible lliey ought to ehcve and what
parts to rejeet The lieinoiisness of
finding fault with the Bible at this
time is most evident 1 11 our day the
Bible is assailed by sunrrilit v bj mis
representation by infidel scientists by
all the viee of earth and all the venom
of perditUML and at this particular
time even preachers of thetosel fall
into line of criticism of the Word of
tJod Why it makes me think of
ship in a September equinox the
waves dashing to the top of the smoke
stack and the hatches fastened
down and many prophesying the
foundering of the steamer and at this
lime some of the crew with aes and
saws go down into the hohi of the ship
and try to saw off some of the plunks
and pry out some of the limber lie
cause the tiiulier did not come from
the right forest It does nol seem to
me n commendable business for the
crew to helping the wind and storms
outside with their axes and saws in
side Now this old tospel ship what
with the roaring of earth and hell
around the stem and stern and mutiny
on deck is having a very rough voy
age But I hve noticed that not one
of the tiuiliers has started and the
captain says he will see it through
And I have noticed that keelson and
eoiintei tiuilicr knee are built out of
Lebanon cedar and she is going to
weather the gale but no credit to
those w iio make mutiny on deck
When I see professed Christians in
this particular day finding fault with
tht Scriptures it makes me think of a
fortress terrifically bo harried ami
the men on the ramparts instead of
swabbing out and loading the guns
and helping fetch up the ammunition
from the magazine are trving with
crowbars to pry out from the wall eer
taiti blocks of stone because they did
not come from the right quarry Oh
men on the raaaparta better fight back
and fight dow n the common enemy in
stead of trving to make breaches in the
While I oppose this expurgation of
the Scriptures I shall give you my
reasons for sueh opposition What
say some of the theological evolution
ists whose brains have been addled by
too long brooding over them by Dar
win and Spencer yon dont now real
ly believe all the story of the Harden
of Edl n do you Ves as much as I
belicM there were roses in my garden
last summer But say they you
dont real I j believe that the sun and
moon stood still Ves and if I
had strength enough to create a
sun and moon I could make
them stand still or cause the refrac
tion of the suns rays S3 it would ap
pear to stand still But they say
you dont really believe that the
whale swallowed Jonah Yes and if
1 were strong enough to make n whale
I could have made very easy ingress
for the refractory prophet leaving to
Evolution to eject him if he were a u
unworthy tenant But say they
you dont really believe that the wa
ter was turned into wine Yes just
as easily as water now is often turned
into wine with an admixture of strych
nine and logwood But say they
von dont really believe that Samson
slew a thousand with the jawbone of
an ass Ves and I think that the
man who in this day assaults the Bi
ble is wielding the same weapon
There is nothing in the Bible
that staggers me There are many
things I do not understand I do not
pretend to understand never shall in
this world understand But that would
lie a very poor Oo I who could be fully
understood by the human That would
be a very small Infinite that can be
measured by the finite You must not
expect to weigh the thuniierlxilts of
Omnipotence in an apothecarys bal
ance Starting with the idea that Gsod
can do anything and that He was
present at the beginning and that He
is 1 resent now there is nothing in
the Holy Scriptures to arouse skepti
cism in my heart Here I stand a fos
sil of tne ages dug up from the ter
tiary formation fallen off the shelf of
U antiquarian a man in the latter
part of the glorious nineteenth cen
tury believing in a whole Bible from
lid to lid
I am opposed to the expurgation of
the Scriptures in the first place be
cause the Bible in its present shape
has been so miraculous y preserved
Fifteen hundred years after Herodotus
wrote his history there was only one
manuscript copy of it Twelve hun
dred years after Ilato wrote his book
there was only one manuscript copy of
it God was so careful to have us have
the Bible in just the right shape that
we have fifty manuscript copits of the
New Testament a thousand years old
and some of them li0fl years old
This Book handed down from the time
of Christ or just after the time of
Christ by the hand of such men as
Origen in the second century and
Tertuliian in the third century and by
men of dilVereit ages who died for
their principles The three best cop
ies of the New Testament in manu
script in the possession of the three
treat churches the Protestant church
of England the QlBtfc church of St
Petersburg and the Romish church of
It is a plain matter of history that
Tibchendorf went to a convent in the
Peninsula of Sinai and was by ropes
lifted over the wall into the convent
that being the only mode of admissiou
and that he saw there in the waste
basket for lindling for the fires a man
uscript of the Holy Script urea That
night he copieil in iy of
the passages of that Bible but
it was not until fifteen years had
passed of earnest entreat v and prayer
ami coaxing and purchase on his part
that that copy of the Holy Scriptures
was put into the hands of the euqieror
of Russia that one copy so marvelous
ly protected

Assaulted and spit on and torn to

guages confronting four fifths of the
human race in their own tongue Four
hundred million copies of it in exist
ence Does not that look as if this
book had lieen Divinely protected as
if lad had guarded it all through the
Is is not an argument plain enough
to every honest man and every honest
woman that a book divinely protected
and in this shape is in the very shape
that God wants it
It pleases God and it ought to please
us The epidemics which have swept
I housandsof other books into the sepul
chre of forget fulness have only bright
ened the fame of this There is not
one book out of thousand that lives
lve years Any publisher will tell you
that There will not be more than one J
book out of every 20000 that will live j
a century Yet here is a Book j
much of it 1600 years old and
much of it 4000 years old and
with more rebound and j
ienee and strength in it than when the
book was first put upon parchment or
papyrus This Book saw the cradle of 1
all other books and it will see their
graves Would you not think that an j
old Book like this some of it 40 cen
turies old would come along hobbling
with age and crutches Instead of
that more potent than any other book
of the time More copies of it printed
in the last ten years than of any 1
er book Walter Scotts Waverly Nov
els Macanlcys History of Eng
land Disraelis Endymlon the
works of Tennyson and Longfellow j
and all the popular books of our time
having no such sale in the last ten
tears as this old worn out Book Do j
you know what a struggle a Ixiok has
in order to get through one century or
two centuries Some old books j
ing a fire in a seraglio of Constantino
ple were thrown into the street A
man without any education picked up j
one of these books read it and did not
see the value of it A scholar looked j I
arer his siiomner ana saw u was tne
Brat and second decades of Livv ami
lie offered the man a large reward
if he would bring the book
to his study but in the excite
ment of the fire the tare parted
and the first and second decade of
livy were forever lost Pliny wrote
twenty books of history all lost The
most of Menanders writings lost of
no comedies of Plautus all gone but
Euripides wrote a hundred dramas
all gone but nineteen Aeschylus
wrote a hundred dramas all gone but
seven Varro wrote the laborious
biographies of 700 Romans not a frag
ment left Quintilian wrote his favor
ite book on the corruption of elo
quence all lost Thirty hooka of
Tacitus lost Don Ca sius wrote eighty
books only twenty remain Berosiuss
history all lost
Nearly all the old books are mum
mified and are lying in the tombs of
old libraries and perhaps once in
twenty years some man CO es along
and picks up one of them and blows
the dust off and opens it and finds it
the book he does not want But this
old book much of it forty centuries
old stands to day more discussed than
any other look and it challenges the
admiration of all the good and the
spite and the venom and the animosity
and the hypercritteism of earth and
hell I appeal to your common sense
if a book be so divinely guarded and
protected in its present state must not
be in just the way that God wants it
to come to us and if it pleases lod
might it not to please us
Not only have all the attempts to de
tract from the Book failed but all Die
attempts to add to it Many attempts
were made to add the apochryphal
looks to the Old Testimen The coun
cil of Trent the synod of Jerusalem
the bishops of Hippo all decided that
the apochryphal books must it added
to the Old Testament They must
stay in said those learned men but
they stayed out There is not an in
telligent christian man that to day
will put the Book of Maeeabeea or the
Book of Judith beside the Book of
lsa iah or Romans Then a great many
said we must have books added I
New Testament and there were
ties and gospels and apocalypses writ
ten and added to the New Testament
but they have all fallen out
Vou can not add anything Vou can
not subtract anything Divinely pro
tected book in the present shape Let
no man dare to lay his hands on it
with the intention of detracting from
the book or casting oul any of tiiese
holy pages
besides that I am opposed to this ex
purgation of the Scriptures because
if the attempt were successful it
would be the annihilation of the Bible
Infidel geologists would say Out
with the Book of Genesis infidel as
tronomers would say Out with the
Book of Joshua people who do not
believe in the atoning sacrifice
say Out with the Book of Leviti
cus people who do not believe in the
miracles would say Out with all
those wonderful stories in the Old and
New Testament1 and some wonld
Out with the Book of Kevcla
and others would say Out with re
entire Pentateuch and the work
would goon until there would not be
enough of the Bible left to be worth as
much as last years almanac The ex
purgation of the Scriptures means
then annihilation
I am also opposed to this proposed
expurgation of the Scripture for the
fact that in proportion as people be
come self sacrificing and good and
holy and consecrated they like the
book as it is I have yet to find man
or a woman distinguished for self-sacrifice
for consecration to God for ho
liness of life who wants the Bible
changed Many of us have inherited
family Bibles Those Bibles were in
use n to SO perhaps HXI years in the
generations To day take dow 11 those
family Bibles and find out if there are
any chapters which have been erased
by lead pencil or pen and if in any
margins yon can find the words Th
chapter not tit to read There has
been plenty of opportunity during lie
last half century privately to expur
gate the Bible Do you know any
case of such expurgation Din lift
your grandfather give it to youi fath
er and did not your father give it to
Beside that 1 am opposed to the ex
purgation of the Scriptures because
the so called indelicacies and en
of the Bible have demonstrated no evil
result A cruel book will produce
cruelty -an unclean book will produce
uncleanliiiess Ketch me a victim
Pit of all Christendom an I out of all
the ages fetch me a victim whose
heart has Is en hardened to cruelty or
whose life has been made impure bv
this Book Show me one One of the
best families 1 ever knew of for lu or
40 years morning and evening had all
the members gathered together and
the servants of the household and the
strangers that happened to be within
the gates twice a day without leaving
out a chapter or a verse they read tiis
Holy Book morning by morning
night by night Not only the older
children but the little child who could
just spell her way through the verse
while her mother helped her The
father beginning and reading one
verse and then all the member of the
family in turn reading a verse The
father maintained his integi it
the mother maintained her integrity
the sons grew up and entered profes
sions and commercial life adorning
every sphere in the life in which thev
lived and the daughters went into
families where Christ was honored
and all that was good and pure and
righteous reigned perpetually For I0
years that family endured the Script
ures Not one of them ruined by them
Now if you will tell me of a family
where the Bible has been read tw ice a
day for thirty years and the children
have lieen brought up in that habit
and the father went to ruin 111 1 the
mother also went to ruin and the son
and daughters were destroyed b
if you will tell me of one such inci
dent I will throw away my Bible or I
will doubt your veracity I tell you
if a mau is shocked witn what lie calls
the indelicacies of the Word of Ood he
is prurient in his taste and imagina

is wanted is not that the Bible be dis
infected but that you the have
your mind and heart washed with car

I tell you at this point in my dis
course that a man who does not like
this Book and who is critical as to its
contents and who is shocked and out

You can not make me believe that

Secretary llerlirt llesirpit to Kewaril th
tan Who Captured Him
When Secretary of the Navy Herbert
was a confederate colonel his life was
saved at the battle of Seven Pines by a
Maine soldier who prevented a re
vengeful comrade from running his
bayonet through the breast of the Ala
bama officer who had been wounded
and had fallen from his bullet riddled
hone When Mr Herbert was a tneiu
Irt of congress says a Washington cor
respondent of the New York Sun he
endeavored unsuccessfully to learn
from his colleagues in the Maine dele
gation the name of his preserver
After he became secretary of the
navy he received a letter from a man in
California asking if he was the Col
Herbert at the battle of Seven 1 jnes
1 IbssssISSI
The writer of the letter was Jonathan
Newconie and he said he was one of
the Maine soldiers who participated in
the capture Secretary llerU rt in an
swering the letter made an appoint
ment to meet the man in California
Sonic time after this the secretary
went to California to visit the navy
yard and there met his Maine soldier
He found that the man had been at the
front in the attack and had taken him
to the rear as a prisoner but it was not
the man wlio had saved his life His
preserver the sergeant had been killed
at Gettysburg and the search fr him
was ended
Secretary Herbert was deprived of
the opportunity of showing his grati
tude to ke principal but he did the
next best thing by extending it to one
survivor of that little group whom he
found The man was a ship calker
who had drifted from Maine to the Pa
cific coast and was poor and out of em
ployment The order of the secretary
of the navy applying the civil service
rules to navy yards was in force but it
was a rule made by an order and not
by law Although it was the policy of
the department and insisted upon by
the president that there should lie no
exception to this rule the secretary
suspended it long enough to give this
man work in the yard at his trade and
he gave directions that as long as there
was a ship or a iKiat in the nary yard
to be calked the old Maine soldier
should have work
