A Sermon By Rev. Silas C. Swal?
low, D. D.
[Printed by request.]
Text?Isaiah 28:18. "Your cov?
enant with death shall be disannll
ed, and your agreement with hell
shall not stand."
These were God's words, through
his prophet, to Samaria, which he
calls the "Crown of the strongest
of the tribes, and is thus made
Pride," because it was the capital
of Ephriam, to personate the whole
nation of Israel. Hence, what
follows is of national import. Is?
rael is charged with hoing a nation
of drunkards, and because all drank
to excess or even in moderation,but
because they had turned their val?
leys and hillsides into vineyards,
and the whole country had become
a great wine-vat. Its revenues and
its wealth were largely dependent
on the manufacture and sale of
such liquors as could be produced
from rotting the grape juice. So
universal had become the curse
that in the eighth verse the Lord
Isavs, "For all tables are full of
J vomit and filthiness so there is no
place clean;'1 thus using the effect
of excessive drinking then, as now,
to characterize the national system
that made it possible; thus holding
responsible for the wickedness, not
onlv the drunkards and moderate
drinkers, not only the owners of
thejyineyards and manufacturers
and sellers of the intoxicating bev?
erages, but the individuals of the
nation who consented to il by be?
ing silent: just as Saul was held
responsible, in some measure, for
Stephen's death, though he only
stood by the clothes of those who
had thrown off their coats that
they might, with greater facility,
hurl the stones crashing in upon
the brain of the proto-mart\r.
God puts the burden of it on the
whole nation; because, douhtless,iu
the interest of their business, of
their social standing, of their pop?
ularity with the drunken officials
of the government, there was a
general ai-qui-scence in the general
debauchery. And, because the
government being implicated in
the revenue of the business, every
subject of the government who
did not in every wav possible pro?
test against drunkard-making was
held responsible for all its evils.
If this was true iu a theocracy
like israel, whose government of
the state was by the immediate di?
rection or administration of God,
our individual responsibility in
America is intensified in compari?
son tenfold,because ours is a demo?
cratic theocracy, in which we re?
cognize. God, not only in all our
public documents, oaths and forms
of law, but in which every voter is
a sovereign, and is clothed with
sovereign duties and privileges,
since he has a voice at the ballot
box, and is eligible, by virtue of
hi-i eitiz irsftip, to every office in
the gift of the people. Tin refold,
hack of all legislative, judicial,??X?V
cu* ive officers and offices and ants,
ii the sovereign voter, and if these
officers' tables ure filled with filthi?
ness, it is because the yoter, who
elevated him to office, has a filthy
table, so that "there is no place
C eau."
And now permit, us to inquire:
what ure s?<nie of the characteris?
tics of this "coven int with death
and agreement with hell" in which
wh have entered in the professedly
Christian country ? this country,
whose virgin soil was providential?
ly opened to the noblest baud of
pioneers that e\er settled a slate
or cemented its foundation with
liieir blood; this country, whose
mountains, plains, and valley,lakes,
rivers aud coas s, are a perpetual
inspiration to holy thoughts and
high endeavors; whose soil is the
most fertile, whose mines are the
richest, whose clima'e is the most
varied and equable, aud whose re?
sources are the most in exhaustible
of all the countries on which the
sun ever shone? *
Our first "agreement with hell"
wis the in ti ution of human lave?
ry, which was lia'ioual, and which
the North abandoned, not on mor?
al principles, but because, for di?
na ii ie, it ceased to be profitable in
t e North, and which the South
l*m monopolized. Then wasinau-!
^nratida coudie, tl at grew in;
fierceness until it culminated in th<
greatest fradlricidal war of history
The war finally and satisfactorily;
settled nothing; war never did, wat
never will. It saddled us with debt
and gaye us a half million of pen?
sioner*, including children, an ar?
my of whom are with us to this
day. It raised up an army of par?
asites, who fattened on the war that
slew their brothers, aud through
that was laid the foundations for
many of the great individual and
corporate fortunes that in trusts
and syndicates now seek to enslave
the whole people. It demoralized
large numbers of men who became
tramps, and they in tum begot an?
other army of tramps who, forty
years after the close ot the war, a*e
still a menace to our civilation.
The war did not settle the race
question, it is upon us taday.
The daminent party, to increase
and perpetuate their power, missed
the opportunity of acenturv, when
at the close of the war, they gave
the negro, degraded by slavery, the
ballot, only to bring upon him un?
told misfortunes, to which that
party has now abandoned him.
That was the golden opportuni?
ty of the party to have so amended
the great Magna Charla of our lib?
erties that oulv intelligent and
mora' men and women, whether
native or foreign born, black, white
or yellow, should be entitled to
Prior to the Civil War, temper?
ance and the prohibition cf the liq
uor traffic had made great strides
in public opinion and in local legal
enactment. The government
thought the representatives whom
our yotes elected, entered into a
covenant with the liquor traffic to
furnish it protection under tl e
guise of regulation, and then tax it
for war purpose. From that ho\?r
it took a new lease of life, since
taxation implies protection of the
men and of the business taxed.
Temperance and prohibition laws
were repealed by legislators, and
the two parties vied with each oth?
er in bidding for the liquor vote, j
without which no candidate could
be elected to a national office, and
in fact, but few to State or muuci
pal offices. The 250,000 liquor sel
lers iu the United States control
an average of ten votes each, or a
million and a half. This, with
the church vote divided on parti?
san lines, and thus voting against
sach other because of imaginary
commercial difference instead of as
% unit on great moral issue, give
the liquor vote the balance of pow
Thus the church voter takes his
candidate on faith, that he wi 11 do
something, if elected, for temper?
ance and good morals, while the
liquor dealer takes the same candi?
date on sight, having secretly con?
sulted him at least not to oppose
the saloon. Thus the church vot?
er becomes an ally of the saloon,
and thus the tables of church
members are "full rff filthiness," as
were the Israelites' tables, and for
the same reason. As God said
through Isaiah, "There is no place
Why do not the church voters cf
this country j >in hands to destroy
the liquor business, not by h)mns,
n'T by prayers to God, which they
themselves could answer if they
would; not bv church resolutions
which are as powerless as spitballs
propelled by a breath of fetid dir.
but by votes for candi-la'es who
are openly pledged in advance of
election to lift from the business
the protection and dignity eui Ferr*
td upon it by the law?
We hear much about anarchy.
There are many anarchists scattered
through this great country. An
anarchist is one opposed to govern?
ment, one who revolts against law
and order. There are anarchists in
the family, iu the church, in the
State. ?
A man who takes a church vow
to abstain from those things which
the church law forbids, and -to do
those things which it commands,
and then to viola'e his obligation,
is setting an example of anarchv;
and the higher his position in the
world, the more pernicious and far
reaching will 1% the influence of
that example, and histoiy must so
record it.
The corporation, by becoming a
producer of commodities for trans?
portation, instead of a mere com?
mon carrier of the products of oth?
ers, thus fixing to other producers
prices of transportation that drives
them from the market and gives
the corporation a monopoly of the
business through which it'robs the
consumers, is an anarchistic corpo
The individual or corporation
that compels employees to labor
seven days in the week, thus vio?
lating the laws of God and man,
and also the laws of man's physic?
al being, by which his life is shor?
tened and his usefulness to the
world impaired, is anarchistic, and
while corporations are said to have
no souls, which means that you
cannot locate the blame, yet God
will find a soul in the awards at
the great Judgement Day,
The individual who makes the
Sabbath, which God has said we
must "remember to keep it holy/'
either a labor day or a holiday, is
setting an example of anarchy. The
officials aud stockholders of such
corporations may be seemingly pi?
ous: they may occupy seats in God's
house on Sunday morning, singing
'Nearer, My God, To Thee'* and
"Lead, Kindly Light," to supple?
ment it with a progressive euchre
party in violation of statutory law,
held in their palatial residences on
prayer-meeting night, and yet with
all their eminent tespectability,cov
ered with the glamour of wealth
and the sparkle of diamonds, they
are encouraging a revolt against
God's luw and mao's law, which
means anarchy.
