"WEDNESDAY, APRIL 25, 1894.
W. R. Akers, of Scott's Bluffs
county, is prominently mentioned
as a candidate for state senator on
the republican ticket.
Ose faction of the Nebraska pop
ulist party is pushing ex-justice
Maxwell forward as a candidate for
governor. The republican party
placed the ex-justice on the retired
list by reasoir of his advanced age,
and there he should be allowed to
The strike instituted by the coal
miners in the Pennsylvania and Ohio
bituminous regions is one of great
magnitude, as it involves nearly
125,000 men. This is,however,only a
starter, and if the result is as pre
dicted by the union, between two
and three hundred thousands men
will be out by the first of May.
The name of H. M. Grimes i3 being
frequently mentioned as a probable
candidate for the nomination for
congress from this district on the
republican ticket. The Tbibuite is
for him and our people are for him,
because we know his competency,
and we believe he possesses elements
of strength equal to, if not greater
than any other candidate in the
field, and that he would carry his
ticket to success. Desiring to know
whether he would be a candidate,
we have talked to him in reference
to the mntter and used our best en
deavor to persuade him to allow us
to use his name, but we failed to
get his consent. Ilence we must
look elsewhere for congressional
timber, if the present announced
candidates are not satisfactory. Mr.
Grimes declination will be regretted
by republicans at home and through
out the district.
The railroads having refused to

can be done in the case is tor the

ill-a"dvised, but since the hosts are
under wav the best method is to get
them to their destination as quickly
as possible and have the matter
At the state irrigation convention
held in this city last winter the
matter of having the legislature pass
a bill creating a county fire warden
was discussed by seme of the delegates
in attendance. Since then the matter
has received considerable attention,
especially in this section of the state
and it is highly probable such a bill
will be introduced in the next leg
islature. The duties of this official
would be to see that the overseers of
the various road districts burn fire
guards along all public highways,
thus confining fires to a small terri
tory. He should also be empowered
to call on overseers, constables and
such other help as might be required
in carrying out the work which
would insure to the people safety
from a wide-spread fire. The
amount of loss occurring from
prairie fires in the west part of they
during the past ten years has been
enormous, and the loss has been
on property on which there was little
iusurance. But this loss is not all.
In burning over a country a prairie
tire absorbs from the ground a vast
amount of moisture which especially
in the spring time, is needed by
vegetation. The representatives to
be elected from western Nebraska
this fall must see that the office of
county fire warden is created.
A Model Labor Demonstration
None of that multiplex peace
army the "commonweal,41 have reach
the common Mecca of their pilgrim
age, the national capitol, but Wash
ington has ahead' witnessed an im
posing labor demonstration. One
thousand workingmen from Penn
sylvania and New Jersey marched
down Pennsylvania avenue last Sat
urday to the capitol, delivered by
duly chospu delegates an earnest
protest addressed to the senate, and
in the evening took the cars for
fiome, leaving behind a committee
of three to confer by request with
the Populist leaders. The thousand
came and went by rail, precisely like
ordinary travelers, paying their own
way, doing what they set out to do
and leaving the seed sown to mature
its own harvest.
This protest, which had been
adopted the day uerore at a mass
meeting of representative wage
earners of the United States assem
bled in Washington, began by call
ing attention to the fact that for
nearly ten months the business of
the country had been paralyzed,
"the promises of improvement in
consequence of certain financial leg
islation not having been realized."
This allusion to the bill repealing
ilvj: purchasing act was pertinent
.nnd-cannot be controverted. What
ever may Jbe said in favor of that
repeal no one claims that it realized
iie nredictions,of those most ardent
for it. The next- sentence distinctly
5ays ihe responsibility -for tjhig par
alysis upon the threatened revision,
of tariff laws, -"junder which we had.
3iPfn en nmennrntic nnd hv ;t,hf COn-
iinuaiice 4f w.hich without prospect
of chance," the protestants feel sure
that all business would be restored
to its former prosperous condition.
Then follow a series of wnereases"
setting forth in concise and definite
language' why the proposed changes
in the tariff would be fatal to in
dustrial prosperity, culminating in
Eesolved, That we, the authorized
representatives of millions of
American workmen, without dis
tinction of party ,hereby respectfully
demand of our representatives in
the congress of the United States
that no change shall be made in the
existing laws that shall in any way
deprive us of the capacity to earn
the full amount of wages to which
we were accustomed during the
years in which there were no pros
pective or inrearenea cnanges in
tariff laws to prevent us from pro
viding for our families better homes,
better education, and more comfort
than in any other country on the
face of the globe.
But the protest does not stop
here. A memorial specially ad
dressed to the senate is added, giv
ing detailed objections to the Wilson
bill, including, among other thiugs,
a specific reference to the duty on
tin. That feature of the McKinley
law, it is pointed out, did not in
crease the cost of tinware, nor would
its repeal, as proposed, decrease it,
yet it yields a revenue of $15,000,
000 a year, besides encouraging an
important branch of industry.
Small wonder that the populists
at Washington requested a con
ference with representatives of the
filers of such a protest. Those
leaders cannot hope to build up a
party which shall command popular
support unless they pay attention
to the wants and convictions of the
industrial masses. There is special
reason why they should seek such a
conference at the present time. The
commonwealers will presently
swarm in upon the capitol, without
any definite idea of what they really
want, and if the populists could
only turn that mighty stream into
a common-sense channel, and make
it the power to turn the wheels of.
legislation in the real interests of
the common people they might find
that there is a tide in the affairs of
politics also which, if taken at the
flood, leads to victonr. Judging
fiom a remark made bv" General
Jieily, the leader ot the common
wealers now in Iowa, what has just
occurred at the national capitol
may prove only the"earpest of what
is soon to follow Inter Ocean.
When the state convention is
held it will be a very lively affair.
New names are mentioned almost
daily in connection with the state
officers. Among the candidates for
the governorship at present are: T.
J. Majors of Nemaha, Jack McColl
of Dawson, I. M. Raymond of Lan
caster, G. P. Bemis of Douglas, A.E.
Cady of Howard and Orlando Tefft
of Cass. Those mentioned for lieutenant-governor
are: T. B. Crane of
Douglas, E. M.Correll of Thayer
and C. M. Miller of Fillmore. For
secretary of state the following are
in line: E. M. Stenburg of Douglas,
T. J. Pickett of Saunders, John C.F.
McKesson of Lancaster, J. B. Piper
of Harlan, A. R. Cruzen of Frontier,
Cash Fuller of Chase and possibly
Councilman George Woods of Lan
caster. J. S. Dew of Johnson is in
the race for commissioner of public
lands and buildings, together with
H. C. Russel of Colfax, S. M. Bailey
of Jefferson and M. J. Abbott of
Hayes. It is understood that Burt
will also have a candidate for this
office. Treasurer Bartley and Audi
tor Moore will be renominated by ac
clamation. The candidates for attor
ney general are W. S. Summers of
Gage, J. L. McPheeley of Kearney,
and W. S. Hamilton of Lancaster.
The list of aspirants for the place
of superintendent of public instruc
tion is rather longer than usual. It
comprises the name of A. K. Goudy
of Red Willow,C. G. Pearse of Gage,
A. A. need of Saline L. L. H. Austin
of Lancaster, William Reece of
Richardson and Frank McClusky of
Lancaster. There are others of
course. The list is likely to grow
rather than dimmish in length be
fore the convention is called to
order. Lincoln Journal.

1872, for although the republicans

case. In 1894, however, there is

..ExPt ye be converted and become as lit
Ue cbildrea,ye shall not enter into the King
dom of HeaVen.-St. Matt XVm. pt. of v. 3.
The words are not new to you;
they are very old and familiar; and
to more than one of you I have spo
ken privately of their significance;
but to-night I wish to speak to all
who are present of the important
meaning which they have to us, and
the lessons of obedience and humil
ity which they are intended to teach
Except ye be converted." There
is hardly any sentence or group of
words in all the Bible which has so
engaged the attention of religious
teachers and disciples; or about
which there has been so muct bitter
and often senseless contention, as
these four words from our text, 'ex
cept ye be converted. "Except ye
be converted ye shall not enter into
the Kingdom of Heaven,"
That simple word "converted,"
which means merely and simply
changed or turned around, has itself
been so turned in some peoples'
minds as to mean only a miraculous
change, a special visitation and rev
elation of the Holy Spirit, which is
a sign that God wishes the individ
ual so visited to confess Him before
men and to lead a religious life.
Possessed with this idea of conver
sion, persuaded that no other
change but this is true conversion,
many men and women who earnestly
desire to do right, are waiting to
day, and have waited for years, for
this sign of God's will to them; and
all this time are refusing to obey
His plain and simple commands.
This is one of the most senseless
theories that ever were invented in
the name of religion, and that is say
ing a great deal. It will not stand
for a moment under Scriptural, his
torical or logical examination. It
amounts to merely this: that all
men and women are free, nay are
compelled to ignore or disobey God's
plain will in regard to baptism, con
firmation, the holy communion, or
any part and all parts of the relig
iousjife, until He comes in some
mysterious way, as a special provi
dencje to them, and selects them, as
chosen by Him to do these simple
commands. It would stand upon
exactly the same plane and principle
as that any one might, with right
and impunity, go on directly and
intelligently violating the Jaws of
this land, until he was brought up
in a court of law and commanded to
do so no longer.
This is an extreme view which is
held and taught by extreme people,
who lay all their stress upon tem
poraryenthusiasm, or excitement of
the emotions; but it has served its
awful, devilish purpose of keeping
many pure, earnest souls out of the
Kingdom of God here on earth, and
forced them to battle all alone and
all unaided through all that strug
gle which comes to most, and which,
with such a weight as this to carry,
becomes almost hopeless. There is
scarcely any, of all the manifold
false teachings of sectarian ignor
ance and delusion, more injurious or
more empty than this.
There are others again who do
not accept the necessity of miracu
lous visitation, but believe and de
clare this much: that no one can be
a real christian who has not experi
enced what is called a "chancre of
heart;" that is a sudden and sensi
ble change from one kind of feeling
to another, from one kind of life to
another. No one is really a chris
tian who cannot tell just when he
became a christian and the circum
stances which attended his conver
sion. Is it necessary for me to tell you
that there is no word of Scripture
which bears out even indirectly this
more moderate theory, to say noth
ing of the other and more extreme
idea? There is not one one word to
declare to any one the the necessity
of sudden change, of sensible change
of miraculous change, though
there are examples found of all
these forms of change. There is
nothing found to substantiate airy
such theories as these which I have
mentioned; but they are merely the
natural outgrowth of sensational
ism and the modern appeals to emo
tional religion. Some persons have,
under the influence of temporary
excitement, imagined that the Holy
Spirit has come to them especially
with a personal and peculiar mes
sage, just as we are told in Scrip
ture Jesus really came to the hostile
and persecuting Saul: perhaps
some have really been visited by spe
cial providence in this way (it is
certainly not for me to say that
they have not), and from this fact
they have been drawn the conclu
sion that all people must experience
such a visitation or .such a change;
that there is no other kind pf con
version possible, and none are chris
tians who have not felt this. The
mistake lies not necessarily in be
lieving themselves so converted, but
in trying to limit the operations, .of
the Holy Ghost to some particular
mode which is pleasing to them.
But I have already 'spent more
time on this matter than this theory
deserves, were it for the evils that
we can all see flowing from it; Let
me go on, then, to show what the
Bible really does teach with regard
to this. It says, in the words of our
text, "Except ye be converted, ye
shall not enter into the Kingdom of
Heaven." There is no limitation
upon the wo4 It: is not declared
that this conversion must bej
wrought in this way or that wtu, :
nor that it must be wrought exactly
in the same way in all cases; nor
tjjaf: all persons shall be affected
alike by &e change, and exhibit the
same manifestations .of j j:. There
j nothing of this kind therp except
an various men read it into the Bible.
But what we are told, (and explain
it as we will, we cannot et around
it, and we dare not ignore the fact. )
is simply this: "Except ye be coil'
verted ye shall not enter into the
Kingdom of Heaven.
