EW YORK. July 14.
MM ?or to-day. R.v. Dr.
Taimage, wno i
still In the West on
his annual summer
F-Ai which has been a
iruiuui niciiic .
theological disputa
tion for centuries
past, viz.: "The Un
pardonable S i n."
The texts selected were: "All manner
of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven
unto men; but the blasphemy against
the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven
unto men. And whosoever speaketh a
word against the Son of man. It shall
be forgiven him: but whosoever speak
eth against the Holy Ghost, it shall not
be forgiven him. neither in this world,
neither in the world to come." (Matthew
12: 31-32.)
"He found no place of repentance,
though he sought it carefully with
tears." (Heb. 12: 17.)
As sometimes you gather the whole
family around the evening stand to
hear some book read, so now we gather
a great Christian family group to
study this text; and now may one and
the same lamp cast its glow on all the
cirt le!
You see from the first passage that I
read that there is a sin against the Holy
Gh'st for which a man is never par
doned. Once having committed it. he
Is bound hand and foot for the dun
geons of despair. Sermons may be
preached to him. songs may be sung to
him. prayers may be offered in his be
half; but all to no purpose. He is a
captive for this world, and a captive
for the world that Is to come. Do you
suppose that there Is any one here who
has committed that sin? All sins are
Against the Holy Ghost; but my text
speaks of one especially. It Is very clear
to my own mind that the sin against
the Holy Ghost was the ascribing of
the works of the Spirit to the agency
of the devil In the time of the apostles.
Indeed, the Bible distinctly tells us that.
In other words, if a man had sight
given to him. or if another was raised
from the dead, and someone standing
there should say. "This man got his
eight by Satanic power; the Holy Spirit
did not do this; Beelzebub accomplished
It; " or. "This man raised from the dead
was raised by Satanic influence." the
man who said that dropped down under
the curse of the text, and had com
mitted the fatal sin against the Holy
Now, I do not think it is possible in
this dar to commit that sin. I think
it was possible only in apostolic times.
Hut it is a very terrible thing ever to
cay anything against the Holy Ghost,
and it is a marked fact that our race
has been marvelously kept back from
that profanity. You hear a man swear
y the name of the Eternal God, and by
the name of Jesus Christ, but you never
ht-ard a man swear by the name of the
H'-ly Ghost. There. are those here to
day who fear they are guilty of the un
pardonable sin. Have you such anx
iety? Then I have to tell you positively
that you have not committed that sin.
because the very anxiety is a result of
the movement of the gracious Spirit,
and your anxiety Is proof positive, as
ertainly as anything that can be dem
onstrated in mathematics, that you
have not committed the sin that I have
been speaking of. I can look off upon
this audience and feel that there is
salvation for all. It Is not like when
they put out with those life-boats from
the "Loch Earn" for the "Ville du
Havre." They knew that there was
not room for .11 the passengers, but
they were going to do as well as they
could. But to-day we man the life
boat of the Gospel, and we cry out over
the sea, "Room for all!" Oh, that the
Lord Jesus Christ would, this hour,
bring you all out of the flood of sin. and
plant you on the deck of the glorious
old Gospel craft!
But while I have said I do not think
It is possible for us to commit the par
ticular sin spoken of in the first text,
I have by reason of the second text to
call your attention to the fact that there
are sins which, though they may be
pordoned, are in some respects Irrevoc
able; and you can find no place for re
pentance, though you seek it carefully
with tears. Esau had a birthright given
"Mm. In olden times it meant not only
tmp."ral but spiritual blessing. One
day Esau took this birthright and
traded it off for something to eat. Oh
the folly! But let us not be too severe
upon him. for some of us have com
mitted the same folly. After he had
made the trade, he wanted to get It
back. Just as though you to-morrow
morning should take all your notes and
bonds and government securities, and
should go into a restaurant, and in a
fit of recklessness and hunger throw all
those securities on the counter and ask
for a plate of food, making that ex
change. This was the one Esau made.
He sold his birthright for a mess of
pottage, and he was very sorry about
It afterward; but "he found no place for
repentance, though he sought it care
fully with tears."
There is an impression in almost ev
ery man's mind that somewhere in the
future there will be a chance where he
can correct all his mistakes. Live as
we may. If we only repent in time, God
will forgive us, and then all will be as
well as though we had never committed
sin. My discourse shall come In colli
sion with that theory. I shall show you.
my friends, as God will, help me, that
there is such a thing as unsuccessful re
pentance; that there are things done
wrong that always stay wrong, and for
them you may seek some place of re
pentance, and, seek it carefully, but
never find it.
Belonging to this class of irrevocable
mistakes is the folly of misspent youth.
We may look back to our colleje days,
and think how we neglected chemistry,
or geology, or botany, or mathematics.
We may be sorry about it all our days.
Can we ever get the discipline or the
advantage that we would have had had
we attended to those duties -in early,
life? A man wakes up at forty years of
age and finds that his youth has been
wasted, and he strives to get back his
early advantages. Does he get them
back the days of boyhood, the days in
college, the days under his father's
roof? "Oh," he says, "if I could only
get those times back again, how I would
improve them!" My brother, you will
never get them back. They are gone,
gone. You may be very sorry about it,
and God may forgive, so that you may
at last reach heaven; but you will never
get over some of the mishaps that have
come to your soul as a result of your
neglect of early duty. You may try to
undo It; you cannot undo it. When you
had a boy's arms, and a boy's eyes, and
a boy's heart you ought to have attend
ed to those things. A man says, at fifty
years of age, "I do wish I could get over
these habits of indolence." When did
you get them? At twenty or twenty
five years of age. You cannot shake
them off. They will hang to fou to the
very day of your death. If a young man
through a long course of evil conduct
undermines his physical health, and
then repents of it in after life, the Lord
may pardon him; but that does not
bring back good physical condition. I
said to a minister of the Gospel, one
Sabbath, at the close of the service.
"Where are you preaching now?" "Oh,"
he says, "I am not preaching. I am
suffering from the physical effects of
early sin. I can't preach now; I am
sick." A consecrated man he now is,
and he mourns bitterly over early sins;
but that does not arrest their bodily ef
fects. The simple fact is that men and wo
men often take twenty years of their
life to build up influences that require
all the rest of their life to break down.
Talk about a man beginning life when
he is twenty-one years of age; talk
about a woman beginning life when she
is eighteen years of age! Ah. no! In
many respects that is the time they close
life. In nine cases out of ten. all the
questions of eternity are decided before
that. Talk about a majority of men
getting their fortunes between thirty
and forty! The get or los; fortunes be
tween ten and twenty. When you tell
me that a man is just beginning life. 1
tell you he is just closing it. The next
fifty years will not be of as much im
portance to him as the first twenty.
Now, w:hy do I say this? Is it for the
annoyance of those who have only a
baleful retrospection? You know that
is not my way. I say it for the benefit
of young men and women. I want them
to understand that eternity is wrapped
up in this hour; that the sins of youth
we never get over; that you are now
fashioning the mold In which your
great future is to run; that a minute,
instead of being sixty seconds long, is
made up of everlasting ages. You see
what dignity and importance this gives
to the life of all our young folks. Why,
in the light of this subject, life Is not
something to be frittered away, not
something to be smirked about, not
something to be danced out, but some
thing to be weighed in the balances of
eternity. Oh. young man! the sin of
yesterday, the sin of to-morrow, will
reach over ten thousand years, ay, over
the great and unending eternity. You
may, after awhile, say. "I am very sor
ry. Now I have get to be thirty or forty
years of age. and I do wish I had never
committed those sins." What does that
amount to? God may pardon you; but
undo those things you never will, you
never can.
In this same category of irrevocable
mistakes I put all parental neglect. We
begin the education of our children too
late. By the time they get to be ten or
fifteen we wake up to our mistakes and
try to eradicate this bad habit, and
change that; but it is too late. - That
parent who omits, in the first ten years
of the child's life, to make an eternal
impression for Christ, never makes It.
The child will probably go on with all
the disadvantages, which might have
been avoided by parental faithfulness.
Now you see what a mistake that fath
er or mother makes who puts off to late
life adherence to Christ. Here is a man
who at fifty years ot age says to you.
"I must be a Christian;" and he yields
his heart to God, and sits in the place of
prayer to-day a Christian. None of us
can doubt it. He goes home and he says
"Here at fifty years of age I have given
my heart to the Savior. Now I must
establish a family altar." What? Where
are your children now? One in Boston
another in Cincinnati; another in New
Orleans; and you, my brother, at your
fiftieth year going to establish your
family altar? Very well; better late
than never; but alas, alas that you did
not do it twenty-five years ago!
When I was in Chamouni, Switzer
land, I saw in the window of one of the
shops a picture that impressed my mind
very much. It was a picture of an ac
cident that occurred on the side of one
of the Swiss mountains. A company of
travelers, with guides, went up some
very steep places places which but few
travelers attempted to go up. They
were, as all travelers are there, fastened
together with cords at the waist, so that
If one slipped the rope would hold him
the rope fastened to the others. Pass
ing along the most dangerous point one
of the guides slipped and they all start
ed down the precipice: but after awhile
one more muscular than the rest stuck
his heels Into the ice and stopped; but
the rope broke, and down, hundreds and
thousands of feet, the rest went. And
so I see whole families bound together
by ties of affection, and in many cases
walking on slippery places of worldli
ness and sin. The father knows It, and
the mother knows it. and they are
bound all together. After a while they
begin to slide down steeper and steeper,
and the father becomes alarmed, and he
stops, planting his feet on the "Rock of
Ages." He stops, but the rope breaks,
and those who were once tied fast to
him by moral and spiritual influences
go over the precipice. Oh, there Is such
a thing as coming to Christ soon enough
to save ourselves, but not soon enough
to save others!
How many p? rents wake up in tho
latter part of life to find out the mis
take! The parent says. "I have been
too lenient," or "I have been too severe
in the discipline of my children. If I
had the little ones around me again,
how different I would do!" You will
never have them around again. The
work is done, the bent to the character
is given, the eternity is decided. I say
this to young parents those, who are
twenty-five or thirty or thirty-flve years
of age have the family altar to-night.
In this category of irrevocable mis
takes I place, alscf. the unklndness done
the departed. When I was a boy my
mother used to say to me sometimes,
"De Witt, you will be sorry for that
when I am gone." And I remember just
how she looked, sitting there, with cap
and spectacles, and the old Bible in hr
lap: and she never said a truer thing
than that, for I have been sorry sine..
While we have our friends with us, we
say unguarded things that wound the
feelings of those to whom we ought to '
give nothing but kindness. Perhaps the
parent, without Inquiring into the mat
ter, boxes the child's ears. The little
one, who has fallen in the street, comes
in covered with dust, and, as though the
first disaster were not enough, she whips
it. After a while the child is taken, or
the parent is taken, or the companion Is
taken and those who are left say. "Oh,
if we could only get back those unkind
words, those unkind deeds; if we could
only recall them!" But you can not get
them back. You might bow down over
the grave of that loved one, and cry and
cry and cry the white Hps would make
no answer. The stars shall be plucked
out of their sockets, but these Influences
shall not be torn away. The world shall
die, but there are some wrongs immor
tal. The moral of which is. take care
of your friends while you have them;
spare the scolding; be economical of thm
satire; shut up in a dark cave, from
which they shall never swarm forth, all
the words that have a sting in them.
You will wish you had some day very
soon you will perhaps to-morrow. Oh,
yes. While with a firm hand you ad
minister parental discipline, also ad
minister it very gently, lest some day
there be a little slab In the cemetery,
and on it chiseled "Our Willie." or "Our
Charlie;", and though you bow down
prone in the grave and seek a place of
repentance, and seek it carefully with
tears, you can hot find it.
There Is another sin that I place in the
class of irrevocable mistakes, and that
is lost opportunities of getting good. I
never come to a Saturday night but I
can see during that week that I have
missed opportunities of getting good.
I never come to my birthday but I can
see that I have wasted many chances
of getting better. I never go home on
Sabbath from the discussion of a re
ligious theme without feeling that I
might have done it in a more successful
way. How is It with you? If you take
a certain number of bushels of wheat
and scatter them over a certain number
of acres of land, you expect a harvest In
proportion to the amount of seed scat
tered. And I ask you now, have the
sheaves of moral and spiritual harvest
corresponded with the advantages giv
en? How has it been with you? You
may make resolutions for the future,
but past opportunities are gone. In the
long procession of future years all those
past moments will march; but the
archangel's trumpet that wakes the
dead will not wake for you one of those
privileges. Esau has sold his birthright
and there is not wealth enough In the
treasure houses of heaven to buy It back
again. What does that mean? It means
that if you are going to get any advan
tage out of this Sabbath day. you will
have to get it before the hand wheels
around the clock to twelve to-night. It
means that every moment of our life
has two wings, and that it does not fly
like a hawk, in circles, but in a straight
line from eternity to eternity. It means
that though other chariots may break
down., or drag heavily, this one never
drops the brake and never ceases to
run. It means that while at other feasts
the cup may be passed to us and we
may reject it. and yet after awhile take
it. the cup-bearers to this feast never
give us but one chance at the chalice,
and. rejecting that, we shall "find no
place for repentance, though we seek it
carefully with tears."
I stand before those who have a glo
rious birthright. Esau's was not so rich
as yours. Sell it once and you sell it
forever. I remember the story of the
lad on the "Arctic" some years ago the
lad Stewart Holland. A vessel crashed
into the "Arctic" in the time of a fog,
and it was found that the ship must go
down. Some of the passengers got off
In the life boats, some got off in rafts;
but three hundred went to the bottom.
During all those hours of calamity
Stewart Holland stood at the signal gun
and it sounded across the sea. boom!
boom! The helmsman forsook his place,
the engineer was gone.and some fainted
and some prayed and some blasphemed,
and the powder was gone and they
could no more set off the signal gun.
The lad broke in the magazine and
brought out more powder, and again
the gun boomed over the sea. Oh, my
friends, tossed on the rough seas of life,
some have taken the warning, have
gone off in the lifeboat, and they are
safe: but others are not making any
attempt to escape. So I stand at this
signal gun of the gospel, sounding the
alarm. Beware! beware! "Now is the
accepted time; now is the day of salva
tion." Hear it that your soul may live!

George H. Sebley in Chicago Record:
The stand .The Record has taken In
publishing both sides of the money
question is praiseworthy journalism.
As an important factor in this cam
paign of education is the elimination
of undisputed points I trust it will per
mit a believer in bimetallism to admit
some of the points made by the dis
tinguished gentleman whose letter ap
peared in The Record of Wednesday,
June 19, Mr. James II. Eckels, comp
troller of the currency.
Mr. Eckels, in the article above men
tioned, says: "A careful study of many
of the arguments advanced by the ad
vocates of the free coinage of silver
shows them to be justly open to
legitimate criticism." Undoubtedly he
is correct as to some of the arguments
advanced by the advocates of a bi
metallic law for the United States at
1G to 1, but many of the arguments ad
vanced by both sides do not realy touch
the question at issue, except as they
show what motives have actuated legis
lation in the past and the monetary
principles to be observed in deciding
upon a remedy.
The principal fact which character
izes the gold standard as unjust is
this: Since the tie was severed which
previous to 1873 bound silver and gold
together, so as to make them through
out the world, for monetary purposes,
practically one metal a bimetallic
standard the measure or standard of
exchange value in the gold-standard
countries has increased so that in Eng
land during January and February,
1895, the wholesale prices of commod
ities were 40 per cent lower than on the
average of the years 1867-77, which Is
the average of the twenty-five years
1853-77 (Sauerbeck's table of prices,
March number of Statistical Society's
Journal). Forty per cent is 66 2-8 per
cent of 60; In other words, the exchange
value of gold increased 66 2-8 per cent
as compared with the periods above
mentioned. In the United States the
increase has been fully 75 per cent. (See
senate report on "wholesale prices and
wages for fall in prices to 1S92.)
The far-reaching effects of this appre
ciation of the measures of exchange can
only be realized when its effects are
considered in detail; one of the prin
cipal effects of falling prices is to dis
courage production; lessened produc
tion results finally in lessened wages,
and large numbers of men out of em
ployment. Another evil is that the
burden of all debts of eighteen years'
standing are nearly doubled. Anoth
er very important fact is that where
prices are fixed by law, such as street
car fares, gas rates, etc., the exchange
value of the price so fixed has nearly
doubled in the last eighteen years.
Again, many prices are fixed by cus
tom and so do not fall in proportion as
other prices fall.
There are several other ill effects
which have followed as a result of the
severance of the tie which previous to
1873 held silver and gold constantly to
gether at about the mint ratio provided
for in the bimetallic laws. While the
ratio between silver and gold was fixed
through the operation of the bimetallic
laws, the exchange between silver-using
countries and gold-using countries.
The ill effects which followed the sev
erance of the bimetallic tie we will not
stop to enumerate. .
As regards the criticisms which Mr.
Eckles makes of the arguments for free
coinage, the principal point which the
writer wishes to make is that Mr.
Eckles explains away the appreciation
in the exchange value of gold.
Mr. Eckles calls attention to the
great increase in this country of bank
ing facilities since 1873. Granting it,
what does it demonstrate? Simply this:
The extension of banks and clearing
houses has economized the use of mon
ey and so helped to keep general prices
from falling to where without this econ
omy in the use of money they would
have fallen. In short, general prices
would have fallen to a much greater
extent had there not been in the United
States the increase in the use of banks
and clearing houses. In the future a
proportionate extension in the econo
mizing of money through the use of
checks is not probable. Therefore, if
the gold standard is continued, the fall
in prices, so far as this cause is con
cerned, is likely to be greater than in
the past.
Furthermore, the tendency to make
cash payments by those who do not
check against a bank account is in
creasing and should be encouraged.
Dut keeping cash on hand diminishes
the rapidity of circulation and so tends
to lower prices. (Same effect. Prof.
Marshall, advocate of the gold stand
ard, In his evidence before English gold
and solver commission, sec. 9659.)
Another principal point which Mr.
Eckles makes is that silver is
now used very largely as money
in the United States, and that
France and the other states
of the Latin union and many of the
other states of Europe are using large
quantities of silver. All this is true,
but it does not alter the fact that in
gold-standard countries the measure of
exchange value has nearly doubled in
the last eighteen years as compared
with the twenty-five years preceding
As to the use of silver as standard
money (this is the third principal point
which Mr. Eckels considers), it is to
be noted that by 1887 not only gold
prices had fallen, but silver prices also
had fallen, though not to so great an
extent; they had at this time fallen 10
per cent. (Evidence taken by the
English gold and silver commission.
And this, too, in the face of the dis
continuance of free coinage of silver
by Germany, the Latin union and sev
eral other of the European states tnd
the United States; the sale of immense
quantities of silver by Germany and the
Scandinavian kingdom, and the out
put of the Comstock lode a lode which
is now worked out.
At present silver prices are only a
trifle above the average of the eleven
years, 1867-77. Silver prices, there
fore, have been stable as compared with
gold prices.
If the United States concludes to
treat silver as it treats gold, namely,
give it free coinage and at 16 to 1, the
result will be that all our gold will be
cast into the European countries, thus
cheapening gold by raising gold prices,
the place which gold occupied being
taken by silver drawn from the silver
using countries, thus enhancing the
value of silver.
We hold about one-seventh of all the
gold money in the world. Hy casting
this off and drawing from the silver
using countries enough silver to supply
its place we take about one-third of all
the silver money in circulation in silver-standard
countries. This will
doubtless re-establish the ratio of 16
to 1 or 16V& to 1, which is practically
the re-establishment of the bimetallic
standard throughout the world, thus
making them one metal for monetary
purposes. Previous to 1873, when the
ratio between silver and gold, was con
stant at about the legal ratio, fluctua
tion was half a point each side of 15
to 1.
f If necessary the United States can
withdraw from its circulation the na
tional bank notes and let silver certifi
cates take their place, and can, in fact,
go further by withdrawing all the
United States notes until such time as
they may be reissued and the ratio of
16 to 1 be undisturbed.
This additional use of silver, com
bined with the amount which takes
the place of gold, would make the total
additional use of silver by the United
States about $1,300,000,000, or one-half
of all the silver money outside the
gold-standard countries. The silver
in the gold-standard countries is mint
ed at 15 1-2 to 1, or 15 to 1, and so will
not come to the United States with its
16 to 1 law, unless a gold-standard
country enacts a law to give up its
silver, and this Is not likely in the face
of the bimetallic sentiment in all gold
standard countries, besides, our law
can prohibit the importation (direct or
indirect) of silver from gold-standard
It is believed that when the United
States makes the start it will not be
obliged to exert its full strength, for
it will not be alone in securing a re
turn to bimetallism, for there are
several American countries which can
assist by enacting bimetallic laws,
thereby throwing their gold into Euro
pean countries and so helping to secure
the re-establishment of the 16 to 1 ratio.
Furthermore, before the United
States, if acting alone, should have
drawn to herself anywhere near the
amount of silver above stated, the low
ered prices for articles now exported
from silver-standard countries would
result, as to many of them, in their
production being unprofitable as com
pared with their other productions; and
with a lessened supply from the silver
using countries the price in gold-using
countries would rise above them as
compared with other commodities in
such countries. This applies to cotton,
wheat, corn, oats and other grains.
During the past years these products
have been unduly lowered in gold
standard countries through the fall in
the ratio between gold and silver; a
reversal of policy would for a time give
them an advantage. As soon as the
prices of articles of trade between gold
standard countries and silver-standard
countries become such that sixteen and
one-half ounces of silver will purchase
as much as one ounce of gold then the
bimetallic standard is assured.
Another important factor in the re
establishment of the ratio of 16 to 1 is
the fact that in the countries wherein
the money power has not yet secured
the establishment of the gold standard
changes in price take place slowly,
owing to the habits of the people and
the absence of information. This will
result in silver coming out of those
countries very slowly, and thus the
great demand created in the United
States not being quickly met will re
sult in silver soon reaching an ex
change value of 16 to 1.
An Interested Listener.
The Rev. J. F. Wilcox, of Chicago,
having been locked out of his church
last Sunday proceeded to preach on
the sidewalk. His congregation con
sisted of one man. The teacher read
his text and Bible lesson. The con
