A QUESTION FROM'
-Mr. J. C. By am, Bristol. Va., Dear Sir: As you : re a cm.lMate for Con gress, may l .i'„ a u question? - This is a Christian nation and nil t-vc'r oir land are churches erected at wh* ,’h to worshl > our blessed 1-ord and Savl :Jesus Christ. There »*<• in our dear old state, tie n w ho truly love Christ and who would die before they world know ingly deny him. far there is no other name whereby we must bo saved. Soon we shall all stand before the bar of God. Sow in his name, I appeal to you and ask,—have you done your duty as you have gono up and down In your district. In instructing the people to whom 3on have spoken? Have you shown them what it means to vote Tor a 1 nit a rian whose very creed denies that Jesus Christ is the Son of God? if this wero true, then pull down your Christian churches, turn out every preacher of Christ and drive ie dear children frm the bunday-Schools. See that man hiving around Hi" family nlta* and earnestly invok mg Christ to rare for and bloss his family, and then go to the poll and vote fer a man who denies Hi Divinity of his Christ. See that ^ainouc on his knees before the ( ruciflction with Iris tearful eyes fixed on the Cross, begging Christ’s forgiveness and mercy and then vot ing for a Unitarian for president o *he l nited States. M’as the spear that pierced his dear side on Calvary any more cruel than such a thrust would be? Would not the man who so voted, teach his children there by that it :s only a trivial matter to deny the Divinity of Christ? Would aot the election of a Unbar ian give Infidelity In this land an impetus and cause devils to re joice.’ How will a man who so votes explain his vote to Christ at the day of judgment?. * This he will surely have to do. 1 wo Christian men, Mr. Garnett of Ruckingham and Mr. Robinson of Danville, who were electors on the Republican ticket, have for the reasons I have stated, refused to be voted for as electors or to vote for Judge Taft. I praise God that in Virginia there are a host of good and true men who love Christ more than they love party, and who, ir they know the facts, will not vote for any man who denies the Divini ty of God’s own Son. Our people are sending many mis sionaries and millions of dollars in to mission fields with the ono ob ject of inducing the heathen world to know and to love Jesus Christ as the Son of God and thereby be saved. Now if Judge Taft were elected President of the United states, tfhat can our missionaries do? Suppose a missionary were ad dressing a thousand intelligent Jap anese and telling them how that Jesus Christ is the Son of o d and died for them and shou'd beg tit >m to turn to him and be saved. nt>d one should rise up and say. ‘ Your own so-called Christian nation has just elected a man President of the United States, who says that what you Bay Is not true and do you expect us to believe it?” The crowd would walk off in disgust. Are men who love God willing to put such a ban upon the truth and thus to embarrass every missionary who is telling the poor heathens the sweet story of Jesus and h s love? Auoiner question: What Is the difference between voting for Judge Taft, and for a man who is running on the tiflttif t. k< t and intends to vote for Judge Ta t himself and is doing all he can to induce others to vote for him? I find the people as a rule, to he honest and they want to know the truth and again I ask, have you anti your associates done your duty In this matter? There is nothing pol c.ca] In this letter. I care little for the great panic but In the ame of the (Jod whom I am trying to serve, J im plore -he American people not to vote for Judge Taft and his allies and thereby turn their harks upon Hod s Son through w.to-;e blood alone men r an be saved from heil.

The « harm of Duncan Irving, the chief character in “Classmate*,” w'hich will lie played by Norman Haekett ahd a large company at the Klks Theatre on October the «7th lies not so much in what the other characters say of him as in what he really is and does. “Classmates” s not a talky play, but an acting one, and Duncan Irving does not rely upon the good word of his friends for his position in the dra ma. hut upon ills own sterling qual ith'S. No one can see him in one act of the play ami not know him to be a man of sweet and fine honor. His eyes and his words carry con viction to everyone that he is the possessor of a clean and honest soul. Duncan Irving as a man is Innately critical. A reticent man as to his own thoughts and feelings, he takes an in ward measurement of every one with whom he comes in contact — often the reverse of what ha.l l)« en supposed. It hurts him to ac knowledge defects lu others and he has the Impersonal sense of justice hwlch allows for good qualities in those who are congenial to him. \nd so. even to his rival, Hert Staf ford. he is chivalrous to the danger point. Hut once his honor i.i aro.t_ r i. once he finds that il is ills fath ers good name that Stafford is drag ;ing in the ni re, all cant < a, all re iralnt leave him and ho strikes a blow that ruins his life.
