His Afternoon Sermon Explanatory of the Nature of a Revival. The Hack . Milder are Given a Severe 1 taking for Their Shortcoming. In His Night Ser mon, Which He- Preaches to a Much Larger Audience, He Dwells on the EvII.h of Intemperance. A large crowd congregated at the de pot yesterday awaiting the arrival of ;Rev. Sam P. Jones and party, but the strain proved to be an hour and a half late and many who had waited and waited in the broiling sun for the arri val of the great evangelist became wear ied and went away. The crowd did not seem to have mate rially diminished however when he did arrive, for the platform was packed from end to end with men and women pushing and elbowing to obtain a view of the great preacher. Finally the Mr. Jones and daughter, Miss Annie C, Professor Excell and Captain Tom Dunham stepped from the train and were immediately surrounded by friends eagc; to grasp their hands. Mr. Jones and daughter were conducted to a carriage and driven to the residence of Mr. J. S. Carr whose guest they will and Capiam'rom Dumram mfb has charge of the books sold at the meetings went to the Hotel Claiborn. THE OPENING SERVICE at Parrish's warehouse which had been transformed into a delightful tabernacle, every available portion of space being occupied by seats, a large crowd had assembled by two o'efock, at three the time for opening the services the house was filled but none were standing. The lloor manager stated to a reporter that there were over twice the number of people present that turned out to hear Mr. Jones for the first time last year. While Professor Excell Avas singing sgme hymns with his choir Mr. Jones entered the hall from the front and as cended the steps of the platform. There was a noticeable change in his appear ance of last year due to his late sickness, but there was still that keen sparkle of the eye and straight carriage. Xot the slightest sound was heard when he took his scat though it could be seen by the animated aed expectant expressions on the faces of his audience that a hearty and enthusiasm welcome awaited him. Mr. Jones was attired in a black suit with Prince Albert coat closely buttoned. "When the last notes of the singing died away, Mr. Jones rose with a smile of greeting and began : "My friends this is surely a glad hour with me. Each da)rof the months that have elapsed since last I looked on many of these faces now before me have, carried with them precious memories of those meet ings so richly blessed." "I thank God that it isnow my privi lege to preach to you again of that same gospel which inspired your fahh twelve months ago. We are here to pray the same prayers, to look up to the same Lord and in addition to take our neighbors by the hands and lead them to Christ." "I know of nothing to fly around the earth so fast as the news of a great and successful revival of religion. Last year it was the subject of conversation on the train, on the street and at business. It is a wonder how it spreads- When a city is being blessed by a revival the news spreads and the whole country is made aware of it." "We have a revival in manufacturing, in farming and in mining interests. It means that these industries are in full blast and that those engaged in them are prosper ing. So in a genuine revival of religion somebody must get a blessing from the increased activity." "A man who is prospering in business doesn't hide the fact. You say he look3 like a well-to-do man. A man who is prospering inreligion can no more hide it than he can put out the sun. He SAM f : - i shows it in his family, in his business and his amugements." Now we want another reviral in Dur ham. We don't want one like we had last year. Don't pray for one just like that or draw comparisons between the one this year and that. Tha one this year will be quite of another sort, but we will all be blessed and abundantly blessed. You saw things last year which you won't see this year, so don't look for the same things. The Lord will give us what he intends us to have and we should be satisfied." "The same blessing will attend these meetings as attended those at Antloch 1500 years ago. There are people who say "oh if I could have seen Christ that would have settled my hash," and that the day of miracles has passed and it is hard now to believe." "Brother, to me the attestations of the divinity of Christ and the truth of his teaching by itVstsnclin4ybf.thQs hundreds of years are more powerful to me than any "miracles. Why, I'm a mir acle myself. The fact that Christ" saved me, a miserable sinner, is a sweater mira cle than the changing of Plater into I wine or the healing of a cripple." iney naa reverends in the days of Barnabas. They have reverends in these days. These old reverends got together and talked over the revival which had just broke out at Antioch. These old fellows shook their heads and looked wise and said, "Let's send Barnabas over to see about that revival which is creat ing such a stir. Barnabas is a safe man and they can't take him in easily. Let him go over and sample it and keep low and mind he doesn't let anyone know he's there." "These are the safe old fellows you find in the churches. They are not safe be cause they save the church but safe be cause they never risk anything." "A man came to me once and said, 'Jones, I never saw such meetings, in my life. They are grand, but don't you fear a reaction V I said to him, 4 You have been holding prayer-meetings regularly once a week for the past six months ; have you had a convert yet ?' 'No,' he replied. 'Then,' I said, 'you have had no action, therefore you can't have a reac tion. You fellows go around here talk ing about reactions, but it's the best sign there's been an action. You are the safe old fellows.' " "A revival is as catching as small pox. Barnabas couldn't stand it and he just got up and shouted. He saw God Al mighty was in the movement and he couldn't stay out." while a Methodist revival was going on ? You see him on the street and he walks with his head down. You speak to him and he answers you with a groan. He's down in the mouth and shows the effects of as clear a case of liver disease as you ever saw." "Did you ever notice the Presbyterian preacher when the Methodists were hav ing a revival ? Oh he doesn't know any thing about it at all. He holds his head way up yonder and tells you lie doesn't know anything about it, he believes something of the kind is going on. These Methodists generally break out that way once every few months." "Brethren, I don't know how many of you have kept the faith since I left you. I know some have been benefitted and remained true to your promise to Christ, but I didn't guarantee any of you then. I don't guarantee a man until he's dead and in heaven and the pearly gates are locked hard and the fence too high for him to jump out. Then I'll guarantee him." "The literal meaning of the word reli gion is to tie back to. The world broke loose 6,000 years ago and God asks us to come back, to tie back to him, to cleave to him. When I want to go to " ash- ington I get on a sleeper and cleave to it and as sure as fate if that sleeper goes to Washington, I go too. So if I cleave to duty I am sure for Heaven." "Now the bull dog is a cleaver in the genuine sense oi tue woru. l ou can i kick him off, you can't cuss him off and you can't beat him off. You can only choke him to death. He's a cleaver. He's there to stay. Even' member of the church ought to have a grip on God so you can't cuss him and you can't kick him loose and only when" clammy death seals his eyes will he loose his hold." "There's a good deal of the cur dog in us fellows. Stamp your foot and he 11 loose his hold and run. You got your relisrion last vear, but as soon as the devil stamped his foot some of you drop ped tout hold, tucked your tails and ran. You got up here last year and said : "God help me, I'm going to vote whiskey out of town." You lying rascal j-ou, you bowlegged rascal, if you had had j-our election the week after I left, you would have routed whiskey and it would never have returned. "A cur is a heap easier to set on than a bull bog. 1 ou can set a cur dog on anything from a grasshopper to an ele phant, you can't do a bull dog that way. He won't look up unless something is a round and he won't bite unless there is something big enough for him to get a hold on. Who ever saw a bull dog after a grasshopper? DURHAM, X. C, SUNDAY 3Ir. Jones then referred to the conver sion of John B. Gough from the life of an inebriate to a temperance lecturer. He spoke of the conversion of impulsive spirits, as Simon Peter and others, who had once been converted and had fallen and returned to the faith. All of those who had gone astray since the last meet ing he invited to come forward with oth ers who were not then present and re consecrate themselves to God. , After reciting an anecting incident which occurred in one of his meetings in Minneapolis Mr. Jones repeated his invi tations to those who had received benefit from the sermon to come forward and give their hands to him during the sing ing of a hymn. A number responded to the invitation and went forward. After the services Mr. Jones' many friends crowded around him and wrould have kept him busy shaking hands for an hour had he not torn, himself away, from their plQ Speak'S iu Wll grasps and to go home. y -jUf and Is Applauded. NlGlie SERVICES, A much larger atMidence greeted Mr, Jones at the night services than listened to his afternoon sermon. The tabernacle, began' to fill long before the hour of begin ning. At half after seven o'clock the choir under Prof. Excell sang a number of hymns and promptly at 8 o'clock Mr. Jones arrived. Rev. J. L. White of the Baptist church offered a prayer, after which Mr. Jones said that he had re ceived a characteristic message from Rev. M. Culpepper who communicated the fact that he got left by putting dependence in a "one gallused" hackman, but will be here by tomorrow. A portion of the railing in front of the pulpit had been cut away in the after noon, and Mr. Jones 'remained in his chair during the entire services. He apologized for this apparently lazy atti tude, because he had undergone consid erable fatigue and when in this condi tion the position of standing brought about a state of nervousness, that inter fered with his labors. He took the life of Job as the theme of his sermon and "Though he slay me, yet in him will I trust," was his text. He said the most loyal character in the Bible was Job, that for upright, down right, unflinching loyalty, there was none other like him on all the earth. He dwelt in his own inimitable style upon Job's persistent love of the Lord in the face of every affliction, and made a striking local application of the moral The devil had his eye on Job. He keeps posted on every man in Durham that does right. If you think you can start out to be a christian .without the 4 raeTirboifieiTair run '-rmx- rnvr- lniscaKtmr There are some men in this town he does bother about. Why? Because he's got 'em solid already. Mr. Jones spoke of the rich man who is pious because of prosperity and who under adverse circumstances would be less religious. It was not so writh Job. He was a prosperous man, served God acceptably and loyally, when he became less prosperous, when he became steeped in poverty and when affliction encom passed him about he still remained staunch to his Maker. Mr. Jones afforded a good deal of mer riment in the audience by alluding to the early days of his ministry when he had to swap horses to supplement his salary. He said he learned to become a pretty good judge of a horse. He would look at the animal up one side and down the other and make his trade upon the merits possessed by the horse and paying little attention to the character of the man with whom he was trading. On one oc casion soon after he had made the best bargain with a irn, the sheriff put in his appearance and claimed that the horse had been stolen from another man. Since then the speaker said he had looked at the man more carefully and less scru tinizingly at the horse. And so with the rich man, he looked more closely into his motives for giving, his honest desire to do good, than to the amount he gave or the good he accomplished. He moralized at length up Job's char acter. Said he, character outranks every thing. A man may be as poor as a pauper, but a good charactor is worth more than the crown of a king is the wealth of the Rothschilds. He touched feelingly upon the character of Gen. Robert E. Lee, whom, he said wonld live as grandly in history as U. S. Grant though he did aot lead the triumphant army. This allusion to the great Confederate produced a slight applause among the back seals. Mr. Jones said he could say that north of Mason and Dixon's line and get a better cheering than that. This rally produced a vigorous applause. He said some men would be better if they bad better wives. A man whose wife was one of these little old worldly try-to-be-sassiety creatures was to be pitied. You can fix up so cheap nowa days. You can play sassiety for $2. Spoke of Job's wife, said she was prob ably one of that class who were in doubt as to whether the best people went to prayer meeting oftener than once a month, and that when the circus came she believed she'd go with the children. Said he, do you want to know what I think of the man who goes to the circus?

The Judge An nounces Ills Gratification at the Ap peal Ileing Taken. ., 4 i Tiie Globe Bureau, ) T" f Raleigii, N. C, Oct. 5. $ Mrl Thomas Devereux opened for the prosecution. He cited 59th N. Y. Re ports the law as to rape, upon the point of consent, and read Judge Folger's able opinion which he said gave THE LAW IN A NUTSnELL and which showed that resistance on the part of the woman was not required to be purely physical. He said that this particular case on trial has had no parallel in the annals of crime. He made a se vere attack upon Boyle's evidence and that Geneva Whitaker's character was attacked her in October as her person was attacked in May. He said that for several weeks prior to the crime the hell of lut had raged in the heart of Boyle, and.that on that day he was inflamed by liquW. He referred to Mr. Battle's at tack, yesterday upon Miss Whitaker's mauu up iue suusiaucu ui jjaiiie argument. At one point in me argument of Mr. Devereux on the power of priests, Boyle said ! IN AN AUDIBLE TONE that a statement was not'true. Mr. De vereux attacked the consent theory and said nothing was more unreal save Boyle's statement that the little, frail girl had tempted him. He called atten tion to Boyle's appearance, his sensual life, his heavy jaw his sunken and moist eyes, not characteristics of a man who had never attempted to approach a wo man. He contrasted the appearance of Boyle and Geneva Whitaker and their evidence. He insisted that this was a case of OATH AGAINST OATH. He charged that Boyle, who by his own confession held aloof from his congrega tion, only cared for the female members of it. He charged that Charles Young, the negro, was Boyle's watchdog at the foot of the stairs, and while poor, crazy Father Reilly and little Alice Upchurch were the only other persons in the build ing. He charged Mr. Battle with not giving all the testimony given by Geneva while he was endeavoiing to make her out a wanton. He argued the fact that the affair occurred in the priest's front sitting room instead of his rear bedroom was clear proof that there was such thing a3 consent. Geneva's reputation could riot be whistled down the wind in in any such way. He spoke of Boyle again, and of Mr. Battle's own admission that he was lost to every sense of virtue. He alluded to Boyle's waiving examina tion last Mayas a decided point against him! He denounced Charles Young as a perjurer and as a procurer. He said that Boyle, who had violated his priestly vows of would violate the vows ofcourse truthfulness to save his life. MR. DEVEREUX's ARGUMENT consumed two hours and a quarter and was warmly complimented. He conclud ed at 11:30, and Mr. George II. Snow be gan his argument for the defence. He opened by saying that he felt a double re sponsibility. He argued that Mr. Dever eux had attempted to arouse prejudice against Roman Catholics, and criticized this line of argument. Boyle, he con tended, was tried as a man and not as a priest or a Roman Catholic. He asked no mercy for him, but only justice, and invoked "only the law. He said it was im possible to conceive of a rape UNLESS ACCOMPANIED BV VIOLENCE on the part of the man and resistance on the part of the woman, even unto death, lie argued further that no person had ever heard of a rape in a city or on a pub lic thoroughfare, and with people in the house. He said that if a woman resisted a long while and then yields it is not rape. He insisted that Boyle had not planned this crime and had not for weeks made advances to her, and said that Geneva was not the child the State tried to make it appear, but she was a woman. He said that he could show there was consent and that Boyle could sit and sav to the State that it had not proved its charge. Hede gcribed THE CONDUCT OF GENEVA in going to Boyle's room, and said that the same responsibility which would force him to lie would also force Geneva to tell an untruth, and portrayed Gene 1889. va's love for the priest, asserting that there is no woman or girl who does not know that it is wrong to thus go to a man's room and sit in his lap. He asked why Geneva did not scream when Boyle let her rise, upon hearing noises down stairs. He said Geneva's testimony was given WITHOUT ABLUSH and with indifference, not as that of an outraged woman would be. In conclu sion he said that Boyel, not a na tive of North Carolina, but of Pennsyl vania, was morally disgraced, but was not guilty of this capital offense. He appealed to the jury most eloquently in Bovle's behalf. He said h feareil tht effect of Solicitor Anro's closing argu ment upon the jury. IJoyle was at the CONCLUSION OF MR. SXOW's SPEECH more affected than at any time during the trial, lie bowed his fiead and cov ered his eves with his hands. Mr. Snow's speech was pronounced the ablest he has ever made. After an hours recess Col. Fuller made the closing speech for the defense. He said that at one place in the State he had been told that Bovle would have been promptly lynched, but in Wake he "was proud to say there never had been a lynching. Col. Fuller sus tained his high reputation as a lawyer. He reviewed the story of the prosecutrix, and picked out what he a'leged were its discrepancies. He said she was no child but a grown woman, seventeen years of age, with the mind and passions of a woman. He appealed to the jury to SHOW NO PREJUDICE towards Boyle because he was a Roman Catholic priest. Geneva, said he, had told Katie Deboys that she had sat in the priest's lap and that he had kissed her, and had told Katie not to tell of it, there by showing her guilty knowledge. He said the case was one of mutual passion between priest and girl, and that the lat ter showed that she knew the priest's feeling when by her own story, she had told Boyle it was wrong for her to sit in his lap. He argued that the girl had never screamed at the top of her voice several times for if she had her screams would most certainly have been heard by Alice Upchurch, for a woman's scream was LIKE A FIRE BELL in the night. The girl has made a false statement, she had never screamed, for if she had the people on the premises would have heard her screams. Then too, if she had been outraged, she would have fled as soon as the hands of t!i' despoiler were removed from her, and when she met Alice Upchurch or Katie Deboys she would have told them THE PRIEST HAD KUINKD HER. He contended that the girl had, to save her own honor taken the desperate step of attempting to swear away Boyle's life. He argued that had Bovle committed the outrage he would have fled. He said that Boyle had accounted for everything save the bruises on the girl's boJy. He said the State WANTED TO THROTTLE .II STICK in its thirst or tLl -hcmw'a Jiipxul jmnLW these bruis-Vi. AKGO'S BVEK.Cn. Solicitor Aigo closed for the State and spoke over two hours. His argument was powerful and was one of the chief events of this memorable trial. He de nied indignantly the charge that the State was thirsting for the prisoner's blood and said the defence had full op portunity to have gotten information about the bruises on the girl. It was observed that when the solicitor began BOYLE TURNED HIS FACE AWAY and looked steadily at the floor. The solicitor said Boyle's relation to Geneva as her priest fully explained her trustful ness in going to his room when sent for. Death now stared Boyle in the face, but the monster was there at Boyle's own in vitation Tor rape is THE MOST HEINOUS of four capital crimes known to North Carolina laws. He said the sole de fence was consent and Boyle's evidence was his sole defence. Finger-prints and bruises upon the girl were absolute proofs of brutal force, and that medical exami nation also showed the same. The girl had cried out when the priest assaulted her, and one of the principal witnesses for the defence had heard that cry. HIS DENUNCIATION OF BOYLE was terrible, and he declared that the Let ter's whole story was a manufactured lie. At G:30 the argument was concluded. The judge began THE CHARGE TO THE JURY. He charged that the only question was the act against her will, and by her con sent, and that the only evidence as to this fact was that of the prosecution and the prisoner, the latter having his own life at stake and the former her character and good name. He charged that fear was one form of violence. The jury retired at 8:30 and took one ballot without result and then went out to supper. THE CASE GOES TO THE JURY. At 8:30 the jury took the case. At 11. 20 Judge Armfiefd took his seat on the bench and five minutes later the jury en tered. There was a deathly stillness in the crowded court room. Boyle stood up. The verdict was "GUILTY," given loud and clear. The prioner sat down in an instant. He showed no spe cial emotion save that there was an ashi ness about his face which was soon suc ceeded by a deep blush. His mouth was even more closely M?t than Usual and he folded his arms tightiy. His counsel ap pealed for A NEW TRIAL upon the ground that the erdict was contrary to the judge's charge and on account of exceptions filed and also be cause the judge 'did not charge the jury specially with regard to the cries made by the girL He argued at some length on these matters alleged that the girl had not cried for help and that she had not stated that fear operated upon her but that she was OVERPOWERED by the prisoners force putting it entirely upon the latter ground. He also urged that the jury had not been instructel with regard to the point in the prisoners favor that he had facilities for escape of which he could have availed himself. It PRICE FIVE CENTS. was. also urged that the argument of counsel that Boyle represented the Savior himself to this girl had had a . ' J POWERFUL EFFECT ON TIIE JURY. He said it was a question of doubt in his mind as to whether this case should have been tried so recently alter the crime, for he said there may be a deep and strong and abiding prejudice against the Roman Catholic priesthood, particu larly among the country people. The defence would have therefore much pre ferred a iury from the city. He insisted that Boyle had not had that FREEDOM FROM PREJUDICE which every man on trial for hl3 life should have. He argued that the most powerful piece of evidence against the prisoner was the bruises on the girl's person and that the surprise at this ev idence lad been a crushing surprise upon the prisoners counsel. He said that the gitl had declined to make anv statement to him and the other counsel for the defence. The jury declined to set aside the verdict and srant a new trial, saying such a course would not be proper unless the verdict was palpably contrary to the weight of evidence. The verdict depended upon the story of the prosecutrix, and the credulity of a witness is always in the province of a ju ry. He said there was not evidence that there was no terror on the part of the girl. The jury believed the girl's story that there was both force and fear, He also over-ruled a motion in arrest of judgment. THE JUDGE ASKED BOYLE what he had to say. Boyle at once arose and in a most dramatic way said he rec ognized that there was a prejudice against Roman Catholics. He said that one of the counsel for the prosecution had as sumed the role of a prohibition lecturer in the West in condemning all who dif fered from him in faith or habits to eter nal damnation. HE FRANKLY AVOWED that he was subject to all the desires and passions of other men and said it was not for the solicitor to denounce any man for habits of drunkenness. He then attacked another of the prosecuting counsel with bitter invective for attacking his chastity, lie was here APPLAUDED FOR HIS bold and earnest words, but the applause was quickly suppiessed by the Judge. Boyle used all his powers of voice and gestures in making his remarks and said he was now ready for sentence. It was the most sensational occurence ever seen here. Judge Arm field said it was a great gratification to know that the case would be carried to the supreme court and that the prisoner would have anoiher chance for his life. The Judge then passed sentence. CONDEMM3D HIM TO BE HANGED on Friday, November 29th next, between the hours of 0 and ft. Boyle sat like a during the judgment. His counsel rose and appealed to the Supreme Court. The appeal was granted and Boyle leaned over and 6iniled as he thanked his cau'" vxrrTiort., Their Sixtieth Scuil-Annual Convent I on. I Jealous of Political Power. ChiCAoo, Oct. !i. A dispatch from, Salt Lake City says the sixtieth general semi-annual conference of the Mormon church began yesterday. Wilfred Wood ruff President and other high officials of the church including twelve apostles were present. President Woodruff in his opening ad dress said the Mormon church had been established by God, and that no power on earth could stay its progress. All the revelations given to the saints including Polygamy, came direct from God, and notwithstanding the trials and troubles through which the Mormons had passed the Lord would sustain all those who obeyed his principles and his revelations. Apostle John W. Tattlor commanded the people to give unquestioning obedi ence to the priesthood. "These men at the head of the church," he said, "have the spirit of revelation and speak for God.' I bear my testimony that President Wood ruff and his counsellors are prophet-seers and revelators. "The hand of God is over this church, and no power can destroy it or impede its progress. 1 believe In implicit obedience in temporal and spiritual things. We cannot retain the spirit of God and yet be constantly finding fault with the priesthood. "We must learn not to judge men by what we see, nor on the basis of the lim ited opportunity we have of knowing what they are doing for the people. We should not criticise church authorities." Other elders and apostles spoke in a similar vein. The church authorities are embracing every opportunity to keep the people in line politically, for they fear that with a loss of political power the ec clesiastical supremacy would be greatly weakened.
