Dr. Talmaso on the Moral Wrecks of Lifo. Value Religlnna Lights Ceail Many on the KUoala of Destruction The fiospel the Ouljr Troe Mitlit Nalvatlon Fur the Family. In a recent nernion at Portland, Ore., Rev. T. Do Wilt TnlmaKO, of Hrooklyn, took hit text from 1 Cor. ix. 27: ' L Rt that by any meant 1 myself should be caat away." The preacher said: In the presence of you who livn on the Pootflo coast, I who live on the Atlantio coast may appropriately apeak on this marine allusion of the text, for all who know about the know about the cast away. The text Implies that milliliters of religion mny help other Into Heaven and yet mini it themselves. The carpenters that built Noah's ark did not Ret Into It thtmsalvea. Uown and surplice, and dU plomas and canonicals are no security. Cardinal Woolsey, alter having been pet led by kings and having entertained for eign ambassadors at Hampton Court, died In darkness! One ot the most eminent ministers of religion that this country has rer known plunged into sin and died; bis heart, by post-mortem examination, found to have been, not figuratively, but literally broken. We may have bauds of erdinatlou on the head and address conse nsu..!, assemblages, but that is no reason why we shall necessarily reach the realm ceionttaU The clergyman must go through the iiimi gate of pardon as the layman. There have been cases of shipwreck where all on board escaped excepting the cap tain. Alas! It having ''preached to others I myself should be cast away." God for bid it. 1 have examined some of the comment, arles to sea what they thought about this word "castaway" and I find they differ In regard to the Ugure used, while they agree In regard to the meaning. So I shall make my own selection and take It in a nautical and seafaring sense and show yon that men may become spiritual casta ways and how finally they drift into that calamity. You and I live In seaboard cities. You have all stood on the beacik Borne of you have crossed the ocean. 8ome of you have managed vessels in great stress of weather. There It a sea captain, and there la another, and yonder is another, and there Is a goodly number of you who, though once you did not- know tho differ ence between a brig and bark, and be tween a diamond knot and a sprit sheet aail knot, and although you could not point out the weather cross Jack brace, and though you could not man the fore clew garnets, now you are as familiar with a ship as you are with your right hand, and If It were necessary you could take a vessel clear across to the mouth of . the Mersey without the loss of a 'single sail. Well, there is a dnrk night In your memory of the sea. The vessel became unmanageable. You saw it was scudding toward-the shore. Vou heard theoryt "Breakers ahead I Laud on the lee bowl" The vessel struck the rock and yon felt the deck breaking up under your feet, and you were a castaway, as when the Hercules drove on the coast of Caffra rla, as when the Portuguese went staying, t splitting, grinding, crashing on the Good Wins. But whether you have followed the sea or not you all underUand the figure when I tell you that there are men who, by their sins and temptations, are thrown helpless! Driven before the gale I Wrecked for two worlds ! Castaways! Castaways! By talking with some sea captains I have found out that there are three or four causes for such a calamity to a vessel. 1 have, been told that it sometimes comes front creating false lights on the bench This was often so in olden times. It is .not many years ago, ludced, that vaga bonds used to wander up and down the beach getting vessels ashore In the night, throwing np false lights in their presence and deceiving them that fiey may despoil and ransack them. Ail kinds of Infernal arts were used to accom plish ' this. And one night on the Cornish coast when the sea was coming In fearfully some villains took a lantern and tied It to a horse and led the horse up and down the beach, the lantern swinging to the motion of the horse, and a sea captain In the offing saw It, and made up his mind that he was not any where uear the shore, for be said: "There's a vessol, for it has a movable light," and he had no appre hension till be beard the rocks grating on the ship's bottom, and it went to pieces and the villains on the shore gathered up the packages and treasures that were washed to the land. And I have to tell you that there are multitudes of souls ruined by false lights on the beach. . In the dark night of man's danger, false religion goes up and down the shore shaking Its lantern, and men look off and take the flickering and ex piring wick as the signal of safety, and theory Is: "Heave the main topsail to the mat tl All 1s well!" wbon suddenly destruction cornel h upon them and they shall not escape. Bo there are all kinds of lanterns swung on the beach philo sophical lanterns, educational lan terns, humanitarian lanterns. Men look at them and are deceived, when there la nothing but God's eternal light house of the Goopel that can keep them from becoming castaways. Once on Wolf Craig lighthouse they tried to build a cop- ' per figure of a wolf with its mouth open, so that the storms beating into it the wolf would bowl forth the dangers to mariners tat might be coming anywhere near the coast. Of course it was a failure. And o all new Inventions for the saving of man's soul are unavailing. What the hu man race wants Is a light bursting forth from the cross standing on the great head landsthe light of pardon, the light of comfort, the light ot Heaven vYou-ni'ight better go to-c'.ght and destroy all the great lighthouses on the dangerous coasts the Barnegat lighthouse,-the Fastnnt lighthouse, the Sherry vore lighthouse, the Longship's lighthouse, the Hollyhead lighthouse than to put out. God's great ocean lamp the ' Gospel. Woe to those who swing false lanterns on the beach till men crash into ruins. Castaways! Cast aways! By talking with sea captains I ho ve heard also that sometimes ships come to this calamity by the sudden swoop of a tern pest. For Instance, a vessel is sailing along In the Eas. Indies, and there is not single oloud In the sky; but suddenly the breexe freshens, and there are swilt feet on the ratlines, and the cry is: "Way, haul away there!" but before they can square the booms and tarpaulin the hatch ways the vessel is groaning and creaking In the grip of a tornado, and falls over . Into the trough of the sea, and broadside it rolls on to the beach and keels over, leaving the crew to struggle In merciless urf. Castaway! Castaway! And so 1 have to tell you there are thousands of luen destroyed lurough the auu .mi swoop of temptations. Soma great inducement to worldlings, or sensuality, or high temper, or to some form of dissipation, oomee upon them. If they had time to ex amine their Bible, if they bad time to con sult with their friends, if th'ty bad time to deliberate, tbey could stand it; but the temptation came so suddenly an euro Olydon on the Mediterranean, a whirl wind of the Caribbean. One awful surge of temptation and they perish. And so we often hear the old story j "I hadn't seen my friend In a great many year. We were very glad to meet He aid I must drink and he took me by the arm and pressed me along, and filled the up np until the bubbles ran over the edge, , and In an evil moment all my good reso lutions were swept away, and to the out raging of God and my own soul I fell." Or the story Is: "I bad hard work to sup port my family. 1 thought that, by one lalso entry, by one deception, by one em besslement, 1 might spring out free from 11 my trouble, and the temptation came poa me so fiercely I could not deliberate. I did wrong, and having done wrong once I could not stop." O. it is the first step that costs; the second is easier; and the third, and on to the last Once having broke loose from the anchor it is not so easy to tie to parted strands. How of teq It Is that m-m are rained for the reason that tho temptation comes from some un expected quarter. As vessels lie in Mar gate Roads, safe from southwest winds; . but the wind changing to northeast they jf divjn helpless and go down. O, that Ood would have mercy upon those whom there comes the tu Iden swoop of tempta tion, lest they perish, becoming cast aways ! castaways I By talking with sea captains I have found out also that some vessels come to this calamity through sheer recklessness. There are three million men who follow the sea for a living. It is a simple fact that the average ot human life on the sea is lets than twelve years. This comes from the fact that men by familiarity with danger sometimes become reckless the captain, the helmsman, the stoker, the man on the lookout, become reckless, and in nine out of ten shipwrecks it is found out that some one was awfully to blame. Bo I have to tell you that men are morally shipwrecked through sheer recklessness. There are thousands who do not care where they are in spiritual things. They do not know which way they are sailing, and the sea Is black with piratical hulks that would grapple them with hooks of steel and blindfold them and make them "walk the plank." They do not know what the next moment may bring forth. Drifting In their theology. Drifting in their habits. Drifting In regard to all their future. No God. no Christ, no settled acceptance of eternal felicity; but all the time coming nearer and nearer a dangerous coast. Hbme ot them are on Ore with evil habits and they shall burn on the sea, the charred hulk tossed up on the barren beach. Many of them with great troubles, financial troubles, domes tio troubles, social troubles; but they never pray for comfort. With an aggravation of sin they pray for no pardon. They do not steer for the lightship that dances in gladness at the mouth of Heav en's harbor; reckless as to where they come out, drifting further from God, further from early religious Influences, further from happinest; and what is the worst thing about it is tbey are taking their families along with them, and the way one goes the probability is that they will all go. Yet no anxiety. As uncon scious of danger as the passengers aboard the Arctic oue moment before the Vesta crashed Into ber. Wrapped up In the business of the store, not remembering that soon they must quit all their earthly possessions; absorbed in their social posi tion, not knowing that very soon they will have attended the last levee and whirled in the last schottische, they do not delib erately choose to be ruined. Neither did the French frigate Medusa aim for the Arguin banks, but there It went to pieces. I wish I could wake you up. The perils are so augmented, you will die Just as certainly as you sit there unless you bestir yourself. Are you willing to be come a castaway 1 You throw out no oar; you take no surroundings; you watch no compass. You are not calculating your bearings while the wind is abaft, and yonder Is a long line of foam bounding the horizon and you will be pushed on to ward it, and thousands have perished there and you are driving in the same di rection. K?ady about! Down helm! Hard down! Man the lifeboat! Pull, my lads, pull! "He that being often reproved bordeneth bis neck shall be suddenly de stroyed and that without remedy," but some of you are saying within yourselves: "What shall I dor" Dot Do? Why, my brother, do what any ship does when it is in trouble. Lift a distress signal. On the sea there is a flash and a boom. You listen and you look. A vessel is in trouble. The distress gun is sounded or a rocket sent up, or a blanket is lifted or a bundle of rag any thing to catch the eye of tbe passing craft. Bo if you want to be taken off the wreck of your sin you must lift a distress signal. The publican lifted the distress signal when be cried: "God, be meiciful to me a sinner!" Peter lifted the distress signal when he said: ' Lord, save me, I perish !" Tbe blind man lifted the distress signal when he said: "Lord, that my eyes may be opened." The Jailer lifted . the distress signal when he said: "What must I do to be saved!"' And help will never corns to your soul until you lift tome signal. You must make some dem onstration, give some sign, make some Heaven-piercing outer cry for help, lift ing the distress signal for tbe Church's prayer lifting tbe distress signal for Heaven's pardon. Pray I Pray ! The voice of the Lwd now sounds in your ears: 'In Me is thy help." Too proud to raise such a signal, too proud to be saved. There was an old sailor thumping about In a small boat in a tempest. The larger vessel had gone down. He felt he must die. Tbe surf was breaking over tbe boat aud he said: "I took off my life belt that it might soon be over and I thought some what Indistinctly about my friends on shore and then I bid them good-bye like, and I was about sinking back and giving it up when I saw a Lright star. The clouds were breaking away, and there that blessed star shone down on me, and it seemed to take right hold of me; and somehow, I can not tell how it was, but somehow while I was trying to watch that star, it seemed to lift ma" O, sinking soul, see you not the glimmer between the rifts of tbe storm cloud f That is the star ot hope. Deathstruck, I ceased the tide to stem. When suddenly a star arose, It was the star of Bethlehem I If there are any here who consider themselves castaways, let me say God is doing every thing to save you. Did you ever near ol Lionel Lukenr He was the inventor of tbe insubmergible life boat. All honor Is due to his memory by seafar ing men. as well as by landsmen. How many lives he saved by bis Invention. In after days tLat invention was improved, and one day ihere was a perfect lile boat, i he Northumberland, ready at Bamsgate. The life boat being ready, to test it the crew came out and leaped on the gunwale on one side to see if the boat would upset; it was impossible to upset it. Then, amid the huzzas of excited thousands, that boat was launched, and it bas gone and come, picking up a great many of the ship wrecked. But I have to tell you now of a grander launching, and from the dry docks ot Heaven. Word cams up that a world was beating on the rocks. In the presence of tbe potentates of Heaven the lifeboat of the world's redemption was launched. It shoved off tbe golden sands amid angelio hosanna. Tbe surges of darkness beat against its bow, but It sailed on and it comes in sight of us this hour. It comes for you, it comes for me. Soul, soul, get Into it Make one leap for Heaven. Let that boat go past and your opportunity Is gone. I am expecting that there will be whole families here who will get into that lifeboat In 1833 tbe Isabella came ashore off Hastings, England. The air was filled with sounds ihe hoarse sea trumpet, the crash of the axes and tbe bel lowing of the tornado. A boat from the shore came under tbe disabled vessel. There were women and children on board that vessel. Borne of the sailors Jumped Into tbe small boat and said: "Now give us the children." A father who stood on dock took his first born and threw htm to the boat The sailors caught him safely and the next, and tbe next, to the last Still tbe sea rocking, tbe storm howling. "Now," said tbe sailors, "now tbe mother," and she leaped and was saved. The boat went to the shore; but before It got to the shore, tbs landsmen were so impa tient to beip tbe suffering people that they waded clear down into the surf with blankets and garments, and promises of help and succor. Bo there are whole fam ilies here who are going to be saved, and saved altogether. Give us that child for Christ, that other child, that other. Give us that mother, give us the father, the whole family. They must all come in. All Heaven wades in to help you. "I claim this whole audience for God. I pick not out one men here nor one man there; I claim you all. There are some of you who, thirty years ago, wore consecrated to Christ by your parents in baptism. Certainly I am not stepping over the right bound when I claim you for Jesus. Then there are many here who have been seeking God for a good while, and I am not right in claiming you for Jesus? Then there are some here who have been further away, and you drink, and you swear, and you bring your fam ilies without any God to take care of them when you are dead. And 1 claim you, my brother, I cltiim all of you. You will have to pray some time; why not begin now, while all the ripe and purple cluster of di vine promise bend over into your cup, rather than postpone your prayer until your chance Is past, and the night drops, and the sea washes you out, and the ap- i palling fact shall be announced that not withstanding all your magnificent oppor- tunities, you have beci in a castaway.

The independent anil prommiioii re publicans and democrats ol Iowa are uniting lor tiie purpoBool overthrowing prohibition.

Tbe fanatics tried to saddle Ihe law upon ber ugaiu this year, but ber people would not have it and overwhelmed it at the polls.

Iu November, 18o8, West Virginia voted on prohibition. The question vas thoroughly discussed, mvestlga ions into Ibe working ot the law in other slates were carefully made, and the ameiidireut was deleated by a vote ol three to oue. Canada bas tried prohibition. Tbe law was passed a few years ago, aud ou a reconsideration ol the question April 3, 188!), the voters slaughtered prohibition from Lake Erie to the Bay of Fuiuly. Every city aud town iu Canada which voted that day repealed prohibit iou. In Iowa in 1880 there were 3,034 overnment licenses issued for the sale of liquor. In 1886, under prohibition, the number had increased to 4,033 an increase of 9!)!. It is not wilbiu the limit of rbasou that any mau would mtv for a license uuless he meant to use it. For the year ending April 30, 1881, before prohibition, 1,884 government l ice lines lo sell liquor were issued in Kansas In tbe year ending April 30, 1887, alter five years of prohibition, 2,9y7 licenses were issued ; iu other words, there were 68 per cent more places selling liquor iu the year ending April 30, 1887, under prohibition, than in the year ending April 30, 1881, before me enactment of the law. There bad -imnly beeu a change ol uame from "saloon"' to "drug store." Maine bas more liquor sellers in pro portion to population than many license states. Rhode Island has one liquor -eller lo every 243 men. (See internal revenue reports ) A REPUBLICAN ON BILLY MAHONE IKiom tbe N. Y. E.enlog P wt.) The latest issue of the Valley Virgin ian, published at Staunton, Va., appears to assure the defeat of Mahoue's attempt to again seize coutrol of the old dominion The Valley Virginian is a newspaper of the highest character, conducted by Mr. S. M. Yost, one ot 'he ablest aud best members "I tbe republican party in Ihe state. In a lead ing cditoii.il article on- "The Line ol Duty." it says thai "it is a republican paper,'' that "it believes in Ihe princi ples aud policies ot the republican parly," that "il will support its organ ization when it is dedicated to Ihe maintenance of those principles," but that "it will not be the willing innlrii meiit of any faction, or the slavish tpolngint of mot boils which can have no other effect than to disintegrate and wreck Ihe republican party." In an other article upon the 'lioiiorablu coin promixp," as the recent "ilenl" rati lied by the prchiileiil is called by the MahoneiteH, the Valley Virginian de nounces "the arrangement which -eems lo have beeu cousuiniusted by which Ihe lull coutrol of the patronage t lie government In Virginia is turned over to Gi'ii.

THE BRITISH ON TOP. I From the Lnuiavilp 'nurl'T-.li. ureal. Last year the republican contention was that it is the duty of the Ainorican voter first lo inform himself what (treat Britain wants, and then lo vote the oilier way. All that is changed now. Oue Englishman is privalo secretary of the president ; another has been cho-.cn to superintend he ceiicus. Muii'lred-. of millions of " British gold'' is finding investment in American iiiilii-trii", as the protection! -ts boast, and protectionists organs exult overil. Nav.thev ascribe it lo the republican vlc'orv la-t fall. So the Brinish manu facturer is to get control of the Ameri can nun ki t, alter all, and that by thu help of the "home market" people. The latter not only admit it, but glory in it. Willi foreign capital replacing American capital, and foteign laborers replacing American laborers in our ln'innt ictories, It wonbl seem that the ' old -It' itiinh gold" argu ineut has be come obsolete. THE STORY OF MRS. DE LA HUNT- I From tho N. V. Kvoning Tost. I On the 2Glh ol March, 188G. Benja min Harrison, then United Slates neii alor lioui Indiana, delivered in the senate a long speecli.ai raigning Urover Cleveland tor breach of bis pledges in the matter ol civil service ictoriii. One of the chiet counts in this indictment was what Ueu. Harrison called "the story of Mrs. Do la Hunt," his telling ot which occupies the greatei part ot one of tho largo pages ot tho Congres sional ltecord, vol. xvii., part 3, page "1 have another case," uen. Harri son began; "1 do not know bow it may seem to the senate, but to me it is infinitely full ol pathos and indigna tion." He proceeded to describe the military career of Maj Do la Hunt, of the Twenty sixth Indiana Volunteers, who was brought down by a wouna entirely through the body, at Prairie (J! rove, in Arkansas, and alter recover ing from this desperate wound, rejoined his command aud received a bullet through his arm. "Disabled by these two wounds received in Ins country s service, he was compelled to leave the army and return to l'erry county, Indiana. But Ids days were few. His vital forces bad beeu so sapped by the wounds which he hud received that it was not long until a sorrowing widow and only oue child followed the remains ot as brave a soldier as ever went out lrom Indiana to his last resting place in the grave." Maj. Do la Hunt left his widow with small means, and she entered upon the work of maintaining bcrsell and her boy. Her old fattier was postmaster at Cannelton, and she became his deputy, in which capacity den. Harrison testt fled that she was "most efficient." Shortly before tho expiration of Presi dent Arthur's term, said Gen. Harri son, "Isabello De la Hunt, tho widow, was appointed, on my request, oy uen. llatlon, then postmaster general, to this little postoice." "If there was iu all this country," continued Gen. Har rison, "one person who by reason of her sex, who by reason oi ner widow hood, who by reason of the sacrifice she had made iu giving the arm ou which she leaned to her country's ser vice, was entitled lo be kept in office, was entitled to have her reputation guarded jealously and by all men who represented the government, it was Isabel le Le la num. xstverioeiess, tbe Cleveland administration removed Mrs. De la Hunt, on the false charge ot "offensive partisanship," and ap- pninted a democratic "worker" in her place. Tbe Cleveland administration having gone out, and Gen. Harrison having become president, Mrs. De la Hunt applied for restoration lo her old posi tion as postmaster. There was no doubt as to her. fitness. Tho present president publicly testified three years ago to the lact that she bad been "most efficient." There was no doubt as to her title to the office. The present president on the same occasion bore witness to bis belie! that "it tnero was iu all this country one person who by reason of her sex, who by reason ot her widowhood, who by reason of the sacrifice she had made In giving the arm on which she leaned to her coun try's service, was entitled to be kept in office" much more lo be restored to an office of which she had been defrauded "il was Isabelle De la Hunt." There was no doubt as lo local seutimeut demanding the restoration ot this most efficient aud worthy per son lo her old office. She presetted a petition more numerously signed than that of anv other applicant, ami' repre senting au overwhelming majority ol the patrons ot the omce. Of course, Mrs. De la Hunt was re appointed to her old position as soon as her old champion, Benjamin Harrison, became president ? Ou tho contrary, the office bas been given lo John Zimmerman, who bus oceu chairman of the republican county com mittee, and whose only claim (o the place is party service. On the 26th of March, 188t!, Benjamin Harrison told the story of Mrs. De la Hunt down to that daie. The Eveuiu Post to-day adds another chapter, bringing the story down to tbe present lime. Benjamin Harrison mado cer laiu comments upon the story three years ago. In preference to any com ments of Its own to-day, the Evening Post simply reprints the comments ol Benjamin Harrison: Mow. Mr. President, perhaps my distinguished friend from Kansas, whose command ot language bo far surpasses my own, might characterize this transaction. perhaps he could touch it up a little; but lo me that work is impossible. The story of Mrs. De la Hunt carries its own piUho-i and Us own mdigmition. N0THINGG0ING ON. Dry Fork Correspondence Arkausaw Tra veler. Rain. Kiver rising.

From the St. Joseph (Jiizctle. The St. Paul Globe is at :t l'"-n lo ac count for the decline of the popularity ot the trolling horse. Only a lew years auo I rot tern were till the ra;;c. Now, Ihe meeting of owners ol trolling horses draw poorly, while running horses and running races are more popu'ar than ever belorc. Thin is easily accounted tor. The Iroi'ing race degenerated iulo a hippodrome. The best horse seldom won The gamb lers controlled everything from the rubber In the 'tall to the (udgeH in Ihe stand. In plain view ol the audience owners anil drivers put (heir heads together and agreed to defraud patrons of the pool box and lo impose upon the snectators.

The Crows have got horses and eat- tle and show an ability to hold on to them. The.ro tiro on the roservution 30.000 to 40,000 heud of cnttlo and 25,- 000 head of sheep, belonging to wliito mon. For the grazing privilogo the white mon pay .00 cents a bead on horses and cuttle nml 10 eents a, houd on sheep. Tho money goes to tho tribe. Tlieudvantageof this privilege Is that it lots the stockmen out of pay ing taxes to tho county government. Tho ability of tho t;row to turn an honest penny was illustrated recently. when Troop K of tbe rirst Cavalry was crossing Pryor creek on tho way to Livingston, Quartermaster Ed wards was ahead of the command somo distance, looking for tho best roads and aCting as pilot. Ho carao to n place where tho water had spread out over the road, making it almost im passable. What mado matters worso the road was fenced in. Old Crooked Face, a (-row, had bis ranch at that point. lie mado his appearance us tbe Quartermaster was speculating bow to get around tho slough. It was evi dent that tho horses would mire if tho troop attempted to cross. At length old Crooked race pointed to tho fence. and suggested that ho take it down and let tho soldiers go through his field. He concluded li is proposition by saving it would cost tho soldiers only 25 cents a piece. The Quarter master declined without thanks and set about plans to lix tho road. It wasn't but a few moments until the discovery was made that the whole trouble was caused by thedarmnin g of a spring near by. That had been done with tho evi dent purposo of making the water overflow and ruin tho road. Old Crooked Face looked on until be saw the jig was up, and tb en an intensely 'disgustod expression came over bis intelligent countenance. The Crows haven't made such pro gress toward civilization as to put their dead under ground. 1'hey still inclose the corpses in boxes and perch them on platforms as high in the uir as possible. In a different climate a Crow cemetery would be a nuisance. Montana air makes mummies of bodies thus exposed. There is nothing in one of these places to offend Die ol factories. Tourists, who bring with them their amateur cameras, have great sport visiting tbe "last resting place" of the Crows. They oven open the boxes, take out the dried bodies and prop them in groups in order to obtain more striking views. Tho Crow is nny thing but a stoical individual. If you suy "How" to him he is likely to reply with emphasis. "Good morning." Ho is a wit and a sport, and whop be is in town ho sees all that is going on. Ho will 'art a game of "tag" in a crowd and keep it up by tho half hour. When ho goes into a storo ho knows just what he wants and doesn't pull over forty dif ferent things whilo trying to make up his mind. But ho is still addicted to feathers and leggings and blankets and the loudest possible colors. St. Louia Globo-DemucraL e . m The Homo's Statement.
