BISHOP KEANE'S ' DISCOURSE , of the Purpose of tlio Oatholio University at Washington , AN EDUCATION WITH GOD'IN IT , Tlio Kloticnt | and Masterly Serin on of * tlm Noted 1'rolatn at HI. J'lillo- 'B Cnthotlrnl Vestcr * Jay Morning. Dlshon Kcane , the learned nnd energetic president of the new Catholic umvor.slty at Washington , ilollvorod nn eloquent sermon ycstenl.iy morning at 10-30 o'clock in the Cathedral ol St. Phllomonn , corner of Ninth nnd Hnrney streets. After reading the oplstlo ahd goipol of the clay ho discoursed eloquently upon the peace nf Godshowing , that the world nnd the In dividual could have no peace save In follow ing the tenchintrs of God , which were these o ( Christianity. In closing his masterly dis course , ho spoke ns follows : There are some who tell us that Hi o Cath- olio church has plunged the world In dnrlc- jicss , nnd they assort that It Is impossible to reconcile science nnd fnlth. Wlint nonsciiEol The thurch of Christ Is filling tbo world with Institution s o f light and learning. She began with the sohools which give nn education with Christ In it , an eduu.ition with tbo light of the world hi it , nn cducat Ion that will fit jncn for all the rospeclablo wulirnof life , and now she wants to do what slio has < ! ono all over Kurope , finish her work by erecting a iircnt national university , an Institution of the highest learning nnd tlio greatest learning , und the deepest learning , telling nil about nature , all about history , all about phil osophy , all that the busy mind of mun can ever study or know , with ( Jed In it. with Christ In it , with the light ot the world run- Cling through it , nn institution which of itself tylll prove how perfectly the Catholic faith Ogfces with the highest learning , the most , perfect refutation that can bo given to the scepticism , which Is the danger of our day. tfhntls the work which the church now has ( ) \ hand today in America , nml that is why I Oin hero today to tell the people of Omal.a , to say to you people of Omaha , you nro Ameri cans ; you nvo Christians ; you are of those who love your country ; you love God ; you love your holy religion ; you are In the very coutcr of our country , nnd I nin sure you will help to ralso up ngront Institution of learning like these that have been reared bv tbo Christians of the old world. The Catholic church Is tlio. another of nil the universities , it Is BIO that lias brought them forth alt over Kuropo and It they have banished the old church from within in these institutions so much tuo M-orso for them. Our Catholic youth , thank God , nro lifting themselves up in the soclitl scale nnd they nro no longur content with tha education that Is given by our elementary schools , und they ro knocking at. the doors ot all the learned professions and they nro asking if the church cannot dn for thorn wlnt it IMS done for the old world. They s > ay 01111101 you give us the highest learning us Clirlitluns ns you have demo it in tlio old world ! Do you not think us much of America as you do of the nations of the , oh I world nnd when our young Catho lics have a mission to become scholars we do not want to say to thorn , "vou will have to go to institutions without- God and without Christianity in them. ! ' No , wo have the right to ho able to glvo thoin the highest learning- with God ami Christianity in It. Christ is not a God of darkness but of light nnd the highest learn ing with God nnd Christianity in it can bo ni-coinpUshud only by the old church of Jesus Christ. .Tbank God , wo have already made a begin ning of thut university. Wo hnvo laid its corner stone and wo hnvo the faculty of divinity bnrd at work training picked men from nil over the country , men who , after having acquired tlio ordinary education that .lits them for performing the ordinary duties , of priests , having aspirations for the work , nro studying and making themselves scholars in ono or other of the departments of di vinity. Wo want to open It also for tbo laity. Wo .want to glvo there au education which n young man would got nt Harvard , nt Yale , nt Johns Hopkins' , in fact nil that ho would get nt tiny university in the world. There la ono mischief nbout It nnd that Is that nOne of tboso things can bo done with out money. How I wish they could. When tlio bishops of the United States tiskcd mo nnd when our holy father asked mo to give np my position ns bishop of Richmond , whcro 1 had spflnt eleven happy years , I know that it was condemning mo to be n hcgpar nnd a 'tramp ' for the rest of niv life. I sriid I am 'willing ' to bo a tramp for Christ's sake , will ing to bo n beggar , willing to go nnd talk to thu twoplo and try" to wako thorn up , nnd so I nin doing it all ever the country , and thank God , wherever I go I nin encouraged , Our people love learning and as soon as wo toll them wo want to nut up a great big institution of learning that will rise above all the schools , nil the collogc * and all the semi- iinricH , like a great lighthouse , .shedding its rays to the very end of the country , they say that Is a glprlus work. Wo love our country , nud wo want to do all wo can to heln such n noble institution. You have heard of that young girl [ Miss Drexel of Philadelphia ] who was Instru- incntal in stnrtiug the university , who vowed . \vbcii sixteen years old , in the presoncoof the blessed Hrcramont , that when she was of ago she would give one-third of all she possessed freely nt her disposal for the endowment of a Catholic uni versity. When she had attained the sgo of twenty-one the bishops were assembled in Baltimore. Ilor father had Uxed matters so that slio could have control of only $1.000,000 nud she gave § 300,000. And they said surely "If she had the courage to do tnnt wo can not be cowards. " Her sister gave tM.OUO , Mr. John ICelly gave $100,000 to endow two divin ity chain , and the ladies have como forward , endowed chairs as monuments to their fath ers or dceeasod husbaiuls , and moil have como forward to immortallzo themselves by endowing divinity nnd professorial choirs , nnd these who could not glvo S , " > 0,000 have come forward and given accord luff to their means. Good old Patrick Qulnn came to nip and snld : ' ! know that this is thu noblest work thntOod'schurcn has taken in hand audit will do moro to put the church right in tha eyes of the people than anything else. I want to have a hand In it. Draw ou mo for S'-'O.OOO. " A good lady In Philadelphia said : "Put mo down for $10,000 , anil I will pay it In f our liistullnionts of5,500. . " Three of thesu Bho has nlroady paid. After mentioning n number of other dona tions received irom eastern people the bishop continued : Now Jl nm making my appeals to tha cities of the west. The east has already sub- Hcribcd $ $00,000 , but It takes millions to es tablish a university , and I want to know if the proud-spirited city of Omnha-and n jiroud-spirltod city it may well bo , with all the evidences of wealth and prosperity which It possesses I say , I want to know whether among those whom God has so signally blessed thorn will not bo found many who will donate liberally to this noble cause , llo- member that it Is not only for yourselves that you hnvo boon lifted up. The wealth that you have has not been entrusted to you merely to keep it in your pockets. I tiiunl ! God tlmt I have nothing in the world. 1 thank God that though n priest for twenty- llvo years I have nothlngaml I know the com. fort of having nothing. But there nix others who have wealth forced upon thorn , nnd 1 sometimes wonder what the people will suy when God will ask , "What have you done with your llfulVhathavo vou done with your moans 1" " 1 kept it In my pocket , " nnd the answer will bo , ' 'My child , Is thai what I giivo lUo you for !

" For this purpose the Ellts nnd many of Lhclr friends had assembled in open incctlnp. T. M. Coolt. C. E. Magoon and C.V. . Mosher of Lincoln loclgo came up from the Capitol city to participate in the exercises.

So on tlio ocean of life , wo pass aiulsocak to onn another , Only a word nnd u. volco then darkness again unaslioncc. 'Man Is dcomcd from his birth. The Joy ; hnt fills the mother's breast ns she looks with rapture on her now-born babe foretells a sorrow which must surely come. The path ways of life are many. Ono is strewn with roses , another with thorns. ' Ono Is varni with sunshine , another is dark with shadows. TIio Journey Is over , all meet before 'the portal tal wo call death. ' Ilenoath its gloomy nrcti -ramps the great nrmy of departed humanity. We hearken and the eclio of receding footsteps - stops falls upon our cars. On they march ! ICing and peasant , the child ofwealth , and the victim of poverty , the tender bnbo ana ho of the whitened locks nnd fecblo limbs , maiden and. matron , the youth and the strong man , the high and the low , the accuser and Lho accused on beyond the mystic gates to the shadowy silent realm. 'Tho unnumbered centuries of human ex perience have taught us that ' \vo nl Jaro under sentence of death.1 Countless years of human philosophy have failed to reconcile us to that decree. "Wo starm beside the open grave of ono wo love , nor Is the load of grief which weighs upon our hearts made light because within a thousand nameless graves lie still and cold the forms of those whom others love. The weeping widow of the cottager finds no sur cease from sorrow because forsooth in yonder dim cathedral lies the king in state. The humble swuln whoso vows of love thrilled tier youiiR heart with joy was more than king to her. The king is dead palace and castle nro draped with black. She looks the tvlde , wldo world is shrouded In her sorrow. J ' The great incident In life is death , , i , .r The years sweep swiftly .on , , ; Death's slcklo does not , may uot , rest And shall not spare the brave , the best , For any prayer , for any moan. "Out of the dark despair , the cruel ngony , tbo awful grief , which lllls the hearts of tboso who watch beside tno pillow of tdo dying has boon born hope , faint nnd shadowy , still a hope , that the darkness of the tomb Is not the "bo all and the end all. " .A hope which may find f ultillmont in a Ufo of pcaco and reunited joy in the land of the hereafter. ' 'For those who have departed from among us , this wo know there Is rest. That mighty host which far outnumbers the living sleeps in peace , in sunshine und In storm , beneath the skies of every clime. The glebe itself is ono mighty sepulchre. "Daily the tides of life go ebbing and llowing beside them. Thousands of throbbing hearts where theirs nro at rest and forever , Thousands of aching brains , where theirs no longer are busy. Thousanus of toiling hands , whcro theirs have ceased from their labors. Thousands of weary foot , where theirs have completed their journey. "This solace , at least. Isours. . Hope may spread her wlugs and soar to other lauds where night shall never come ; but human knowledge halts bssido the tomb. "If n man die. shall ho live again ? Prom how many countless thousand pleading lips has gone forth that cry I The only answer is the echo of that mournful wall , 'shall ho live again V "Hope ! The first bright star that cost its radiant gleams across tbo rosy streaks of the primal dawn. The last celestial sentinel whoso light proclaims the midnight watch. Art thou Indeed a herald of the Infinite ! "Wo gaze at yonder wall and wonder , could these pictured lips but part In speech , what message could they bring J Fallen in the ranks ! Many a loved brother , whoso familiar face and form lent zest and spirit to your so cial homes , who , In the days when sorrow cast tier shadow nnd affliction came to some within your order , extended the brother's band ; nnd ho alone to whom the proffered service came could iiamo the helper. .Call tbo roll for " 001 Alexander , McCormick , Warrnck no answer.

"Oh , watchman , tell us of tho-night ; shall this mortal put on immortality , or do the weary limos of those who sink beneath life's burdens , nnd repose in slumber dreamless and eternal ) Wo do uot know ; wo cannot tell. "By tVo sea , the dreary nocturnal sea , Stands a stripling man , Ills breast full of sorrow , hut noad full of doubt , And with gloom v lips hnasks of the waters : 'O , solve mo the riddle ot Life , That harrowing , world-old riddle , Wherooa many heads have pondered and brooded.

' The waves they murmur tlioirondlcss babble , The wind it blows , and the clouds they wander , The stars , they gllttor coldly Indifferent , And n fool waits for an answer. " Mr. Gurley was followed by Mr. Slmoral , who ututod that during the past year the asterisk of death had been placed opposite- three names on the roster of the ledge , and thiit in accordance with their custom this lodge of sorrow was held to pay tribute to the memory of the departed.

Tlio alliance , Ocala , plat form , it is predicted , secure absolute adop tion by the national democratic convention , and this with , the endorsement of a modified sub-treasury bill would place tlio democratic party squarely upon tbo fanners' alliance platform. In this way it would gain the sup port of the entire alliance and democratic votes throughout the country.

God.Tho The Jews docllnod to rocognl/.o Jesus as the Messiah because ho voluntarily took upon himself death for the sins of others. In the later Judaism , as is shown in Lho Talmud , the conception of the char acter of tlio Messiah is most si ngular. The belief was that the true Messiah , .ho son of David , would bo preceded by another Messiah , a son of Joseph of Ephraim , who should suffer death for uon for a sin offering. Century after century has passed , and /ho Jewish nation has vainly expected /he former , and lias often arisen and placed Itself under the standards of dreamers , fanatics and impostors who took to themselves the sncrcd name. Of all those Impostors , Simon Bar- Cochba , loader of the Jews in their great insurrection against the Romans under the Emperor Hadrian , from 131 to J185 A. D.was the most formidable and remarkable. Three times the op pressed Jews had revolted without suc cess , but when Simon placed himself at their head things changed. Ho assumed the name of Bar-Cochba , "Son of the Star , " pretending that in liimtho prophecy was to ba fulfilled. "Thoro shall come a star out of Jacob , " etc. , Numbers xxlv 17. IIo fought at first with groit success against the Romans , and even obliged them to evacuate Jerusalem , where ho was proclaimed king , and had oolns struck witli his 'name. War spread over all Palestine , and fifty towns , besides villages and hum- lots , came into the possession of the Jews. But on the arrival of Hadrian's general , Julius Sovorus , Jerusalem was retaken ; fortress after fortress was seized and Simon Bar-Cochbn , foil at the storming of Bother. A dreadful mas sacre ensued , and from the fall of this false Messiah dates the final dispersion of the Jews throughout all the kingdoms of the earth. In the lifth century there arose in the island of Gandiaa false Messiah called Moses , who had a grout following for a time , but who finally came to grief and shame. In the sixth century a Messiah named Julian caused great excitement among the peoples. In Persia and Arablaovea as late as the twelfth century , Messiahs occasionally appeared , leading lives of triumph for a time , then being discov ered and falling a prey to popular fury. All the more modern Messiahs have been mystics , but have had some prac tical ambition concealed beneath their prophet's cloak. Mahomet , the founder of the Mussul man religion , is often called the "Mes siah of tlio Moslems. " IIo was born in 57J , and his biograph ers say that his birth was accompanied by miracles. When ho was forty years old ho had a vision ( ho said ho know not whether it came from an angel or from an evil spirit at the time ) , but after ward ho claimed that It was from on high , and created him thoprophotof the people. All his life ho pretended to bo guided by revelation and by visions , and ho succeeded in obtaining the fanatical fol- lowingof millions and his creed has been perpetuated for 1,200 years. Unlike most false Messiahs , Mahomet died in his bod. Ho was a great man and his pretended intercourse with divinity probably did much more good than harm in the barbarous ago In which ho lived. Other false prophets have done very effective work for tlio Mussulman domi nation at various periods since the eleventh century. The Mahdis , or "Directors , " who appear at intervals la Arabia and Egypt for the purpose of es tablishing the reign of universal justice and peace upon earth , have done won ders at grouping people around them and at subduing the Iniidol. Ina 1170 a Mahdl who preached the unity of God , appeared in Morocco and took up hisabouo in a burial ground , where ho preached daily until ho had 100,000 disciples. After various vic- torifis over the unbelievers ho is said to have boon translated. The Mahdi , or director of the faith ful , is fo > 'otold by the koran and is ex pected as the Mossmh by a very largo class of Mussulmans. In 009 ono of them made himself caliph of the whole coun try , from the straights of Glbraltor to the border of Egypt , and his successor conquered the whole island of Sicily. The latest of the Mahdis , whoso phe nomenal career wrought such tremend ous changes in Egypt from 1881 to the siege of Khartoum and the death of Gordon , was one of the grandest of the allies. Not only did ho vanquish Egyptian and European armies , but hu threatened tp cross the Mediterranean If ho reached Cairo and to devastate Marseilles and other southern ports. While ho was at the height of his glorv ho died of small-pox , but is sup posed by 'his followers to have been translated to glory. Ho has a successor whp made things very uncomfortable recently for Kmiri Pasha inthe equator ial provinces of Africa. If the Indians were led by a false Messiah as clllclent as the Mahdl there would bo mad work along the frontier , Since 1H10 false Messiahs have boon numerous hi the United States. Joseph Smith , the founder of the sect of "Lat ter-Day Saints , " known a.s the Mormons , is the loader in this Interesting category of illuminated worthies. At ono time the Mormon Messiah inarched forwnrd us boldly us Mahomet , but in later .voars his intluonco has di minished and Is likely to porlsh alto gether , unless Indeed some of the Mor mon McsslnhUm is lurking under the mummeries -which are arousing the In dians at present.

Such Is human credulity , and such has it been through the centuries. The Sinoko Nulsunc.'u in ISnglnnd. The question of wholesale smoke abatement Is being canvassed with great earnestness in England. A leading Kn- fjllBh journal Buys : "The smoke demon befouls the atmosphere , oxcludeB the sun and shortens our already too short days. This compels us to use largely artilleial light , which costs money , whereas natural light costs nothing. It blackens our public stutus , our persons , our elothinir , and tends to lower generally the Btumliml of cleanli ness. The olTcuts of smoke on vegeta tion are obvious to all. Trees die , "flow ers will not grow , oven our gratis degen erates into weeds for obnoxious forms of vegetation can resist unwhole some conditions. People ai-o begin ning to awaken to the impor tance of the commercial and social as- poets of the question. The Hon. Hello Kussell ; in a lecture delivered lately in London under the auspices of the Na tional Smoke Abatement association , showed in a most striking manner the effect of smoke and the resulting fogs on the health of tlio people of London , and further that , apart altogether from in jury to health , the Binoko and fogs of London costs its inhabitants about / > , - 000,000 , or &i > ,000,000 per annum Joi- material loss and damage alone. The lord provost of Glasgow , in an address on tno subject , urged the 'necessity of legal enactments for the compelling of all consumers of coal to conduct their operations so as to avoid the discharge of smoke into the atmosphere. That this was possible under conditions which are gonoraly supposed to involve the generation and omission of a largo quantity of smoke ho showed by quoting a letter from the proprietor of a largo print works , -which it was stilted that , although fifty tons of coal wove used in his works daily , no black srnoko was made. The writer Dialed that the ap paratus used Is what is called the "hop per and shuttle continuous spreading feed , " and it wan attached to his double- Hue boilers. The smoke abatement ques tion has been taken up in Hngland by thoroughly competent parties and tlioro is every reason to believe that in a short time a , great improve ment will take place in the atmosphere of the British manufacturing centers. This matter is of interest to Americans from the fact that indications are not wanting that the question of smoke con sumption Is one- that will sooner or later have to bo seriously considered in this country. Cost , of a Society Dinner. Now York has become a city of ox- travnimnco in dinner-giving , and many of these entertainments , with all the delicacies of the season and rare wines , cost from $20 to $100 per cover , writes Foster "Wales la tlio Ladies' Ilomo Jour nal. Of course the latter Is the outside llgurobut reckoning that ono gives adin- nor once a wcok to a party of , say , lit Icon , at the first named figure it will prove a snug sum at the end of the year. In order to render these dinners complete and perfect , the hostess must misbehs a dinner service more or less elaborate , and it is rarely , if over , that the major ity of outsiders stops to consider what those consist of and how much money is spent in this direction.
