FROM JUDGE ALTON B PARK
ERS ADDRESS OF AC
CEPTANCE
AUGUST 10TH 1904 I
IIt seems desirable to call atten
tion to the fact that the people in
whom all power resides have seen
fit through the medium ofthe Con
stitutiun to limit the government
al power conferred and to say to
departments created by it Thus
far shalt thou go land no farther
To secure the ends sought the peo
ple have by the Constitution sepa
rated and distributed among the
three departments of government
the executive legislative and judi
cialceartain powers and it is the
duty of those administering eath
department so to act as to preserve
rather than to destroy the potency
of the coordinate branches of the
government and thus secure the
exercise of all the powers conferred
by the people
Thomas Jefferson in a letter tc
William C Jarvis touching the
perpetuity of our institutions writ
ten many year after he had retired
to private life said If the three
powers of our government main
tain their mutual independence o I
each other it may last long but
not so if either can assume the au
thority of the other It must be
confessed that in the course of our
history executives have employed
powers not belonging to them
statutes have been passed that were
expressly forbidden by the Consti
tution and statutes have been se 1
aside as unconstitutional when it
was difficult to point out the prc
visions said to be offended against
in their enactment all this has been
done witha good purpose no
doubt but in disregard neverthe
less of the fact that ours is a gov
ernment of laws not of men deny
ing its just powers from the con
sent of the governed If we would
have our government to continue
during the ages to come for the ben
efit of those who shall succeed us
we must ever be on our guard
against the dangers of usurpation
of that authority which resides in
the whole people
DAVID B HILL announces that
he will retire from politics on Jan

and lose an office rather than gain
an office and lose his self respect
We dont exactly understand what
the Colonel means but we take it
for granted to continue in the race I
with any hopeofvictory would be
a terrible strainon the pocket

t Kings 19918 Memory Verses 1518
9 And he came thither unto a cave and
lodged there and behold the word of
the Lord came to him and he said orI
nm What doest thou here Elijah
10 And he said I have been very jealous
for the Lord God of hosts for the children
of Israel have forsaken Thy covenant
hrown down Thln altars and slain Thy
irophets with the sword and I even I only
itn left and they I eek my life to take It
iway
11 And he said Go forth and stand
POll the mount before the Lord And
ehold the Lord passed by and a great
nd strong wind rent the mountains and
rake in pieces the rocks before the Lord
ut the Lord was not in the wind and
f ter the wind an earthquake but the Lord
as not In the earthquake
12 And after the earthquake a fire but
he Lord was not in the fire and after the
re a still small voice
IL And it was so when Elijah heard it
lat he wrapped his face in his mantle
d went out and stood In the entering in
r the cave And behold there came a
olce unto him and said What doest thou
ere Elijah
14 And he said I have been very jealous
r the Lord God of hosts because the
ildren of Israel have forsaken Thy COy
ant thrown down Thine altars and slain
> prophets with the sword and 1 even
only am left and they seek my life to
Ke it away
15 And the Lord said unto him Go re
rn on thy way to the wilderness of Da
ascus and when thou comest anoint Ha
et to be king over Syria
X And Jehu the son of Xlmshl shait thou
olnt to be king over Israel and Elisha

PLACE Mount Sinai or as it Is often
alle1 Mount Horeb
Jomparlng Scripture with Scripture
The PlaceCame thither unta
aveln the Mount of God the place
where God appeared to Moses in the
haloing bush Ex 312 and the place
where Israel had received the law Ex
1912 A place hallowed by sacred
memories and yet not the place for Eli
jah as Gods twice repeated question and
His command Gp return on thy way
prove Elijah spent over 40 precious
days In getting alone with GwI when
he might have found Him in Israel
May not the prophet have erred as the
Samaritan woman did who sought to en
gage Jesus in argument about Mount
Gerazim as the only place to find Got
and to worship John 420 How many
weary days the discouraged Christian
often spends ki getting alone with God
Elijah made up his mind he would go to
Sinai to meet GojJ and the Christian
often foolishly fixes place and time for
meeting God and spends weary days in
finding Him Acts 1727 Ps 14518
It Was the Place of Heart Searching
1 God Became the Examiner Jer
1710 The prayer of the Psalmist should
be our prayer Ps 1392324 But we
must submit Jas 47 Then God will
reveal true conditions tons Phil 315
What doest thou here Elijah is
1the question God often has to ask us
2 God Became the Teacher The
Christian often makes a long journey
of It to Gods schooleven as did Elijah
But it is a blessed place to come John
1426 1613 1 Cor 212 God sought to
turn Elijahs thoughts away from self
It took the rockrending winds the
mountainmoving earthquake and the
fierce fire to turn Elijahs thoughts tc
God Oh how hard it Is to bring the
soul to listen to God How God has to
almost strip us naked and afflict us sore
before we wilt turn from self to Him
It Was the Place of Encouragement
It was humiliating to Elijah to realize
that bisboast of standing alone for Goc
was 7000 below the true number but
surely he was rejoiced and encouragfc
to know how many faithful ones there
were Do you ever feel you stand alone
for God Get away in His school and
let Him give you the correct census
Alone Never for Jesus is ever present
Matt 2820 He is ever working with us
Mark 1620 by His Holy Spirit John
16711
It Was the Place of Fresh Commission
When Elijah fled from Jezebel he lost
his commission He needed It re
newed The runaway servant of God
generally loses his commission and it it
only as we get alone with Gcd that we
may receive reappointment in the Lords
work Gods first word to Elijah was
Go return on thy way Elijah must
be 1 submissive to Gods rill 2
Obedient to His command God made
Elijah retrace his steps and many a
Christian has to do this very thing be
fore he can do Godswork It takes sub
mission and consecration and obedience
to do this And when Elijah was read
to go back when his spirit of self Im
portance had been subdued when be
was wholly given to Gods will when
he was eager to obey then God revealed
His plans for him
THE GOLDEN TEXT
Fear thou not for I am with thee
Immanuel God with us Matt 123 i
Marvelous truth The angels said to
the frightened shepherds Fear not
for Jesus is come Jesus said to His
trembling troubled disciples Fear
not for it Is I your risen Lord And
His message to the human heart is
still Fear not Fear not for He
comesto save He comes to help He
comes to bless May He who speaks the
message Fear thou not for I am with
thee hear faiths response from our
hearts I will fear no evil for Thou
