It I ne Uved that you are thinker and
reatoners, aad f r that rraoo mre
ihsn a statement of fact It unnecettary-
And the number of the army of the
hoi aemcn were two hundred thousaid
thou-and; and I hi ard the number of
them And thus I saw the horses la
tho vi-lon, and them that sat on them,
having breast plates of Ore, and of ja
cinth, and brimstone; and the head o'
the horses were as the brads of lions;
and out of tbelr mouths Issued Are and
smoke and brimstone. Revelation,
ix; 1617
You will notice one thing In this part
of the prophecy different from that dla
cussed In No IX. The piwer or gov
ernment was represented In the first
part of tho prophecy as "locusta,"
shaped like hors s with men's faces
and having hair like women, while In
thl the government Is represented as
horse with heads like Hons and from
whom n.ouths Issued lire, and smoke
and brimstone. This would Indicate a
more forooloui and destructive power ;
and the change cornea after they "hal
a king over them." It Is a well estab
lished fact In history that the Turks
did not enter Into successful conflict
with the othir nations until near the
mid tie of the fifteenth century--after
' they had a king over them." Hut
from that day down to 1S40, and at
Intervals since, the Turk has been a
most bloodthirsty and destructive
Then (uhapter X) John saw another
angel coma down from heaven, who
swore by Ilim that llvetb forever and
ever, that there should be time no
longer: but that In the dayi of the
voice of t he Seventh angel, WHEN HE
should BKOIN TO bound, the mystery
of God should be finished, aa lie bath
declared to Ills servant and prophets.
And the angel had a little book in his
band, and Jetus commanded John to go,
take and eat the llti'e book, which
should be as honey In bla mouth, but
bitter In his belly, after wbloh be was
to prophecy before many peoples, and
natlona, and tongues, and kings. And
the angel said (chapter it), Itlse and
measure the temp! of Ood, and the al
tar and them that worship therein; but
the court wbloh Is without the temple,
leave out, aod measure It not; for It is
given unto the Gentllos; and the holy
city shall they tread tinder foot forty
and two months.
Forty-two months having thirty days
each would contain 1200 dajs, or, s It
ha often buen shown, 12(10 years, since
a day In prophecy Is uned to designate
a year. Some writers have attempted
to make this apply to Jeruialcm, but It
would seem, to restrict Its moaning to
that city, would be to adopt a very nar
row Interpretation,
lo early days Jerusalem was the cen
tre or source from which emanated or
radiated all that there was of Israel.
To It, even lo the time of Christ, went
the pjople of the surrounding country
to attend the paasover, Christ aod
His parents went there for that pur
poso, you will remembor, so it will be
claimed in thl artlole that "the holy
city," in this connection, refers, not to
Jerusalem, but to the people scattered
throughout the world, who have be
come Israelite by adoption or by being
grafted into the original tree by faltb
and works from the various nations of
the earth.
This treading down of the holy city
Gjd's people began 538, A. D,, at the
time when the Church of Rome, which
li now knon throughout the world as
the Homan Cathollo ohurch, was given
headship, or dominion, or authority,
over the othsr churches by earthly or
civil powen; and ended 1200 years later
or, to be exact, In 17US, when Pius VI
was carried In to captivity, under order
of Napoleon, by Gen. Berthler. Hut
the third verse of chapter xlii says the
anti-christlan power should be wound
ed but tbat its wound should be healed,

The only place In hlatory where we
can find a period of turmoil correspond
ing to the time mention lo the Ilibli
when the witnesses were to be killed
and He In the street three and a hal

Terror In Paris from March, 1792
whon the Glrondlats tecured completa
complete control of the assembly and In
less thin a month afterward compelled
tie king to declare war against Austria
to October 5, 1 7U J. Hlbles were burned
in the streets, death was declared an

all tboae laws bad boon repealed.
And the same hour was there a great
earil quake, and the tooth part of the
city fell, and In the earthquake were
slain, of men, 7,000; and the remnant
were affrlgbtened and gave glory to
the God of heaven. Rev. xl;13.
It Is our purpose to be absolutely fair
in the discussion of these propLcole,
and for that reason we will make a
statement Juit at this point.' That
verse sayi "In the tame hour." An
nour In prophecy meant 15 fays. No
place in history, within fifteen dayi be
fore or after nor yet during the
Fta'go of Terror, can we Ond an ac
count of a physical earthquake of any
such magnitude, but we do find that
Llaboa was destroyed November 1, 1755,
by an carlbq take which killed between
30,000 and 40,000 people. If we are to
take the usual allowance of five people
to each man, we would find, If the a
were 35,CO0 people killed, shat exactly
7,000 of the number were men, (See
Am, Eo, Urit. 3H28, Vol. 7.) But this
did not occur within the same hour
that tho two witnesMos wore killed, so
we do not advance it as an oluio proof
that this I the fulfillment of the proph
ecy. It may be thvt Mr. Uriah Smith,
Is right In describing the earthquake
as a political and not at a physical dls
turbance. His argument U as follows:
"What city? Bee chapter 17:18: 'And
the woman wbloh tbou tawet, 1 tbat
great city which ruleth over the king
(kingdoms of the earth.' That city it
the papal Roman power, France la one
of the 'ten horns' tbat gave 'tbelr
power and strength unto the I papal
beast;' or Is one of tho ten kingdoms
tbat arose out of the western empire of
Rome, as indicated by the ten toes of
Nebuchadnezzar's image, Daniel's ton
horned beast, and John's kn hornod
dragon. France, then, was 'a tenth
part of the city,' and wat one of the
strongest ministers of papal vengeance;
but in this revolution It "fell," and
with It fell the last civil messenger of
papal fury. 'And In the earthquake
were slain of men margin, names of
men, or titles of men, seven thousand,'
France made war, lo her revolution of
1789 to '90, and onward, on all titles
and nobility. It Is said, by those who
have examined the French record,
that just seven thousand titles of men
were abolished in that revolution."
It Is duo those wbo read in this col

While The American ha no dtapnal
lion to take aide In this flglit nt thla
time, It la pleaaed to note the fact
that the republican leader are deter
mined to resist a re-eatabllahment of
the Roaewater diatatorahip In this City,
county and state. It is glad to see
the line so closely drawn, It believes
It will have a good effect aeparate t'.iu
goats from the sheep and win back
to the party thousands of good, honest,
thinking men, who have recognized
the fact that the Hee was the cham
pion of corrupt official when It could
use them, and the slanderer and tra
ducer of honeat men when they would
not do the bidding of lt editor. The
American haa been a consistent and
fearlea ant.l-Koaewater and anti
Roman paper since It blrtb, more
from force of circumstance than from
choice, ao far a Mr. Roaewater waa
concerned, and It will be glad to see
both driven forever from lh council
of the republican parly In thl state,
It I a notorious fact that Roaewater
haa alway been an assistant demo
crat, never a stanch and loyal repub
lican tinlea hi preferred candidate
who have nearly nlway been cor
ruptwere given places on the ticket.
He fought Hitchcock, Ulrd, Walaii,
Colby, Majors, I'etera, Richard, Riia
aell, Chaffee, Wheeler, Davis, llroateh,
Howe, Webster, Thurston, and hun
dred of other republican nominee,
aimply because be knew they would
not tolerate any Interference from the
editor of the Di e. It has been due to
his assaults upon the republican party
and not to the aaaaulta of political op
ponents, that haa hurled the republi
can party from power in this state. A
vigorous campaign against Roaewater
dictation, without any compromiaing,
will reinvest II with power, and place
It In the confidence of the people. Will
such a campaign be made? Now ,1
the accepted time.
Since the various political parties
have held their convention the Lauce
Is Inclined to wait for development.
Only lat week several candidate on
the Republican ticket were treated to
the usual spectacle of Roaewater at
tempting to override tho action of
their convention and demanding tbat
they be withdrawn from the ticket,
and threatening them with defeat if
the wishes of the would-be dictator
were not complied with. The Repub
