■fcosecuting attorney
Clark Makes Bad Break.
Champ Clark at the Trans
Mississippi convention appears
‘to have been the same witty,
genial companionable fellow that
he always is at every function.
His speech was interesting, and
in a gefteral way emphatic as to
most of the important matters
under ^consideration, but, upon
one of the most important ques
tions with which the convention
attempted to deal he fell down.
That was the Aldrich currency
scheme. He was not enamored
of it, he said, though it might
possess good points. He did not
understand it, however, and for
that reason he was opposed to it.
It savored too much of concen
tration of the financial interests
of the country.
There is a great diversity of
sentiment as to’ the plan propos
ed by Mr. Aldrich to make the
currency system of the country
more elastic and to prevent the
disasters that attend the flurries
or panics that come now and
then. Many of the ablest finan
ciers of the country endorse it,
equally as many are opposed to
it, and the feeling among the
__j_ .. i_ _11. _
wuxxtx.y uiuuisc xt, c^uiux^ no
many are opposed to it, and the
feeling among the leading men
of the republican and democrat
ic parties is the same, but most
of those who have taken a stand
either for or against the meas
ure have studied it and are able
to give reasons for the faith
that is in them. Not so, howev
er with our geqjal friend Champ.
Although it was submitted to
the American people nearly two
years ago, and has been discuss
ed in various commercial bodies
gs well as congress, he is “agin”
it because he doesn’t know any
thing about it.
j One would naturally assume
that an aspirant for so impor
tant a position as the presiden
cy would give some considera
tion to all the great questions
before the country, and that a
question so momentous as one
which relates to currency re
form would not escape his no
tice, but it seems to be other
wise.
But then, there are so many
statesmen who are, or at least
^profess to be, ignorant of the
merits or demerits of questions
relative to which there is a
fierce discussion and criticism
among the people all around
■ them. Statesmen of that kind
are not rare, but they seldom as

, A Great Meeting Was
The Tabernacle Last
Night.
--
| Last night a large congrega
■ tion greeted the evangelists and
| as visual they heard a strong
! sermon. It was an appeal that
i brought much . conviction. It
| was a message to the Christian
| to live a higher life, to the un
| saved to accept Christ NOW.
Mr. Burke’s text was taken
from Ecclesiastes 12:1 “Re
member now thy Creator in the
days of thy youth,' while the
years draw nigh, when thou
shalt say, I have no pleasure in
them;” His theme “Eternal
Memory.”
Remember just now; not to
1 morrow, but NOW. “Those that
seek me early shall find me.”
The first business proposition is
to seek your Creator, while you
can be appealed to. The longer
you neglect, the less pleasure
will you have in the message of
God.

world is neglect. To neglect the
one who loves us» Mother
wants to be remember, because
she loves us.
It will be a mighty sad day
for some of you when you shall
remember, you have neglected
your Salvation, your Saviour.
If you neglect you will get to
the place that you will not care,
if the church bell rings or not, if
preachers want to preach all
right. I don’t care. When a
man gets to the place he don’t
care, he has struck the bottom.
You become so negative you are
beyond appeal.
Neglect your child, while you
give him a good education. You
say he can then make money and
he will be all right. Yet if you
| neglect your child’s salvation
I you have ruined him.
We need more parents to
teach their children to respect
the church and Sunday school.
Church members in this town
I that belong to churches away
from here should put their mem
bership in Here. If the churches
are not good enough for you
move away from town.
If you want to be happy fol
low Jesus every day. If you
want to keep close to God keep
telling the story.

Because you have neglected
your Creator and your memory
shall haunt you and you cannot
shake it off. You will feel the
sting of your conscience.
