A committee of veterans met Thursday night and drew up somo pretty strong resolutions which thoy will sont to tho sonuto, tho house of ropresonUitlvcs and President Tart, but thoso will avail nothing in re lieving tho presont situation, be causo nothing can bo done in the fow days botwoon now and July 1, tho beginning of tho next fiscal year.

All of faith. the wholo Dtblo, a full and complete goapelj a broad, onobllng gospel, worthy of God Is what mankind needs. It must not limit God In any way or tako from his word ono lot Or tittle. Where" is tho church covering up and apologizing for sin la oursolvc, our church and in others; Sin must die. It shall not havo dominion. Sin alwayj ruins, sin always kills, Sixth Lack of power in the church. First It take tho nower of iue iioiy unosl to start a. revival. Then yon koon out of God's wnv nnrf let him run It.
