CHICAGO, Sept. 23. Rev. Dr. II. W.
Tin unas caused somewhat of a sensation
yesterday by declaring from his pulpit
tliut the tinio had come for America to
say that the oppression of Cu!mi by Spain
must come to un end. There was a large at
tendance of the best people in the city and
the speaker was frequently interrupted by
outbursts of applause. Dr. Thomas said
in part: "Among the modern nations of
the earth Spain Is old. She was onco in
the foreground, ono of the greatest and
proudest and most prsierous of nations.
Hut she was always on the sido of royalty
and ccelt'siiislirisiii. She belongs to the
old order of government and religion.
Other countries havo advanced have
heard the call and caught the Inspiration

to manage its own affairs, but no right to
