every ono may do something to arrest that
uppnllhig calamity, And I shall plow up
the whiilii Held,
The flint evil Hint threatens tho mini
hllatlon of our American Institutions Is
tho fact that political bribery, whlch.ontii
wnscoiisldeiisl aclinic, has by innnycouui
to he coiisliliiriij a toterabln vlrtucv Thorn
Is a legitimate iimi of money lu elections,
In tliu printing of Mll!lra! trncts, mid hi
thn hiring of puhllo ImlU; nml In the ob
taining of rmiipaluu oratory, but Is them
any liomunrnliis who supposes that this
vast amount of money now lielng wised by
tho JMilltlcal part les Is going lu it legltlmatn
dlrectlonf Thu vast majority of It will go
to buy votes.
Hundreds nnd thousands of men will
hnvo set Itcforo them so much money for
I a Republican vote, mid so much money for
n wuiinMTiiuu Tine, mill ill" superior iiiiaii-
clal Inducement will decide the, notion.
You want to know which party will carry
tho doubtful states day after tomorrow?
I will tell )ou, Thn party that spends thu
most money, This moment, while I
speak, thu peddlers carrying gold from
Wall street, gold from Third street, gold
from Htato street and gold from tho Brew
ers' association, are In nil tho political
headquarters of the doubtful states, deal
lug out tho Infamous Inducement.
There used to Im bribery; but it held its
head In Minnie. It was under tho utmost
lecrecy that ninny years ago n railroad
company bought up tho Wisconsin legls
.'ature anil many other puhllo ofllclaU In
that state. Tho governor of tho statu at
that time, received ttO.onO for his signa
ture. Ills private secretary received M.OOO.
Thirteen inemliers of thu seuato received
17.0XI among them in bonds. Sixty
members of tho other house received from
tAOOO to tl(),(XK each. Tho lieutenant gov
ernor reeelvtsl f 10,000. Tim clerks of thu
house, received from .1,000 to 110.000 ench.
Tho bank comptroller received 110,000.
Two hundred and lltty thousand dollars
woru divided among thu lobbyists. You
see tho railroad company was very gen
eroiis. nut all that was hidden, nnd only
through the severest scrutiny on tho part
of n legislative committee was this in
iquity displayed. Now political bribery
defies you, dares you, Is nrrognut, nnd will
probably decide tho election next Tuesday.
Unless this illalxillsin ceases hi this coun
try Bartholin's stnlnuon Bed loo's island,

Unless this iiurchaso mid salu of sufTrima
shall ceaso tho American government will
expire, ami you might asjrcll bo getting
ready tliu monument for another dead na
tion nml let my text Imtcrllx) upon it these
wonts, "Alas, nhis. for Babylon. Hint urent
city, Hint mighty city, for lu ono hour Is
thy Judgment cornel" My friends, If you
have not noticed that political bribery Is
ono of thu ghastly crimes of this day, you
navo not Kept your eyes open.
Another ovll threatening tho destruction
of American institutions is thu solidifying
of thu sections against each other. A solid
north. A I'MId south. If thlsuoes on we
shall after awhile have a solid east ngulnst
asoiiu west; wo shall have solid middle
states against solid northern states; we
hall have a solid Now York against n
olid Pennsylvania, aud it solid .OhlongnliiKt
a solid Kentucky, It is twotity-suven
yenrs since thn w arcloud, ami yet at every
presidential election thu old antagonism is
aroused. When Garfield died nml nil the
states gathered around Ills casket In sym
pathy and in tenrs, and as hearty telegrams
of coudolenco came f nun New Orleans nnd
Charleston as from Boston ami Chicago, I
said to myself, "I think sectionalism i
dead." But, alas, nol Tho dlfllculty will
never bo ended until each statu of the na
tion Issplltuplutotwoor threo Kreat po
lltical parlies.
This country cannot exist unless It ex
ists as onu body, the, national capital, he
heart, sending out through all thu nrteiles
of communication wtiimth and life to the
very extremities. This tuition cannot ex
ist unless It exUU as ono family, and you
might as well hnvu solid brothers against
solid sisters, ami a solid bread tray against
a solid cradle, mid a solid nursery against a
solid dining room, and you might as well
have solid ears against solid eyes, mid solid
html ngiiinst solid' foot. What is tho in
terest of Georgia is tho Interest of Mas
snchUKctts; what Is tho inturcst of New
York is thu 'intenvst of South Carolina.
Does tho Ohio river change its politics
when It gets below Louisville? It is not
possible for these sectional aitttiKonisms to
continue for it great many years without
permanent coiiiMiuml fracture.
Another evil thn'utrnlog thu destruction
of our American Institutions is tho low
itatoof public, morals.
What killed Babylon of my text? What
I'liwuleinr What killed Home?
Ihelr own depravity, ami thu fraud, and
tho drunkenness, and tho lechery which
nave iiestroyeii other nations will destroy
Diirs unless n merciful (iod prevent. To
thowjou tho law statu of public morals I
have to call your attention to the fact that
many men nominated for offices hi differ
ent states at different times nru entirely
unlit for thu positions for which they have
been nominated.
They linvn no mora qualification for
them than a wolf has qualification to be,
professor of pastoral theology In a Hock of
theep, or a blind molubas qualification to
lecture a class of eagles on optics, or than
vulture has qualification to chaperon a
love. Tho mere pronunciation of some of
their names make it demand for carbolic
kcld and fumigation! Yet Christian men
will follow right on under thu political
I havu to tell you what you kuow al
ready, thul American politics hnvu sunken
to such a luw depth that theru Is nothing
beneath, What wo see in some directions
we see in nearly all directions. Tliu pecu
lation aud tho knavery hurled to the sur
face by the explosion of banks and busi
ness firms are only speclmuus of great Co
topnxis and StroinbolU of wickedness that
boil and roar and surge beneath, but havu
not )et regurgitated to thesurfoce. When

who say thu marriage Institution amounts

Them Is enough out and out licentious

In some of thu American cities today wholu
blocks of houses which thu authorities
know to Ins Infamous, and yet by purchaso
they are silenced by hush money, so that
such places are as much under thu defense
of government as puhllo libraries aud
asylums of mercy.
These u leers on the body polltlo bleed and
gangrene away tliu life of thn nation, and
puhllo authority lu many of the cities looks
thn other way. You cannot curu such
wounds as these with a silken bandage.
You will hnvo to euro theut by putting
deep lu the lancet of moral surgery, mid
burning them out with tho caustic of holy
wrath, and with most decisive amputation
cutting off tho scabrous and putrefying
abomination. As the ltninans were after
tho Celts, nml as thu Normans werunfter
thu Milton, so there are uvlls after this
nation which will attend its obsequies un
less wo first attend theirs.
Superstition tells of a murine reptile, tho
ccphaloptern, which eiifolilisl mid crushed
nshlpot war; hut It Is no superstition when
1 tell you that thu history of many of thu
dead nations proclaims to ipt tliu fact that
our ship of statu is In danger of being
crushed by thu eepluiloptura of national
depravity. Where Is tliu Hercules lo slay
tills hydra? Is It not time to speak by pen,
by tongue, by ballot box, by thn rolling of
thu prison door, by hangman's halter, by
earnest prayer, by Slmiitlo detonation?
A. sou of King Croesus is said to have
been dumb mid to have never uttered a
wonl until he saw his father being iut to
death. Then he broku tho shackles of
slleiieu nnd cried out, "Kill not my father,
Cruutusl" When I see tliu uheatery and
thu wantonness and thu manifold criiuu of
this country attempting to commit, patri
cide yea, matricide upon our institu
tions, It, seems to nietbat lips that here
tofoio have been dumb ought to break tho
slleiieu with caiioioustoucH of fiery protest.
I want to put all of thu matter Wfont
you, so that every honest, man ami woman
will know Just how matters stand, mid
what they ought to do It they vote, and
what they ought to do if they pray. This
nation Is not going to perish. Alexander,
when ho hcant of thu wealth of tho Indies,
divided Macedonia among, Ids soldiers.
Some onu asked ill in what ho had kept fur
himself, nml he replied, "I am keeping
hope!" And that Jowol I keep bright and
shining in my soul, whatever else I shall
surrender. Hope 'thou In God. Hit will
set back these occlude tidcs'of moral dev
astation. Do you. know what Is the pri.u
for which contention is made today? It is
the prize of this continent.
Never since, according to John Milton,

contributions to Tlio Contemporary lie

study of European constitutional systems
nml general iolltlcal conditions. When
