In his first sermon of the New Year
mt Brooklyn Bev. T. DeWitt Tnlmage
ye in the city of Jerusalem until ye be
endued with power from on high." Ue
For a few month, in the providence
of God, I have two pulpits, one in
Brooklyn and the other in New York,
and through the kindness of the print-
ing press an ever wideningopportunity.
To all such hearers and readers I come
with an especial message. The time
lias arrived for a forward movement
such as the church and world have never
seen. That there is a need for such a
religious movement is evident from the
fact that never, since our world has swung
out among the planets, has there been
such an organized and determined effort
to overthrow righteousness and make the
Ten Commandments obsolete and the
whole Bible a derision. Meanwhile al
coholism is taking down it victims by
the hundreds of thousands and the
political parties get down on their
Itnecs, practically saying: 40, thou
almighty Rum Jug, wo bow down be
fore thee. t'ive us the offices, city.
State and National. O, give us the of
fices and we will worship thee forever
and ever. Amen' The Christian Sab
bath meanwhile, appointed for physical,
mental and spiritual rest, is leing secu
larized and abolished. As if the bad
publishing houses of our own country
had exhausted their literary filth, the
French and Russian sewers have been
invited to pour their scurrility and
moral slush intdthe trough where our
American swine are now wallowing.
Meanwhile there arc enough houses of
infamy in all our cities, open and un
molested of the law, to invoke the om
nipotent wrath which buried Sodom
under a deluge of brimstone.
The pandemoniac world, I think, has
massed its troops and thej' are this mo
ment plying their batteries upon familj
circles, church circles political circles
and national circles. Apollyon is in the
saddle and riding at the head of his
squadrons would capture this world for
darkness and woe. That is one side of
the conflict now raging. On the other
side we have the most magnificent gos
pel machinery that the world ever saw or
Heaven ever invented. In the first place,
in this country are more than eighty
thousand ministers of religion, and,
take them as a elass, more consecrated,
holier, more consistent, more self-deny
ing, more faithful men never lived. I
know them by the thousands. I have
met them in every city. I am told,
not by them, liut by people out
side our profession, people engaged
in Christian and reformatory work,
that the clergy of America arc
nt the head of all good enterprises, and,
whoever else fail, they may 1h depended
on. The truth of this is demonstrated
by the fact that when a minister of re
ligion falls, it is so exceptional that the
newspapers report it as something
ftartling, while a hundred men in other
callings may go down without the mat
ter lwing considered asespecially worth
mentioning. In the next place on our
side of the conflict we have the grand
est churches of all time and higher
style of memlenhip, andmoreof them,
and a host without numlier of splendid
men and women who are doing their
best to have this world purified.elevated,
gospelized. Rut we all feel that some
thing is wanting.
Rut look at some of the startling
facts. It is nearly 1.900 years since
Jesus Christ came by the way of Beth
lehem caravansary to save this world,
yet the most of the world has been no
more touched by this most stupendous
fact of all eternity than if on the first
Christinas night the beasts of the stall
amid the bleatings of their own young
had not heard the bleating of the Lamb
that was to be slain. Out of the 1,800,
000,000 of the human race, 1,400,000,000
are without God and without hope in
the world, the camel driver of Arabia,
Mahomet, with his nine wives, having
half as many disciples as our blessed
Christ, and more people are worshiping
chunks of painted wood and carved
stone than are worshiping the living
and eternal God.
What is the matter? Mv text lets out
the secret. "We all need more of the
power from on high. Not muscular
power, not logical power, not scientitie
al power, not social power, not finan
cial power, not brain power, bnt power
from on high. With it we could ac
complish more in one week than with
out it in 100 years. And I am going to
get it, if in answer to prayer, earnest
and long continued, God will grant it to
me, II is unworthy servant. Men and
women who know how to pray, when
you pray for yourself, pray for mc that
I may be endued with power from on
high. J would rather have it than all
the diamond fields of Golconua, and all
the pearls of the sea, and all the gold of
the mountains. Many of the mightiest
never had a touch of it. and many of the
less than ordinary intellects have been
surcharged with it.
Rut power from on the level is not
sufficient. Power from on high is what
we need to take possession of us. Power
straight from God. Supernatural power,
omnipotent power, all conquering
power. No more than one out of a
thousand of the ministers have it con
tinuously. Not more than one out of
ten thousand Christians have it all the
time. Given in abundance these last
ten years of the nineteenth century
would accomplish more for God and
the church and the world than the previ
ous ninety years of this century. A few
men and women in each age of the
world have possessed it- Caroline Fry,
the immortal Quakeress, had it, and 300
of the depraved and suffering of New
gate prison under her exhortation re
pented and believed. Jonathan
Edwards had it, Samuel Rudgett,
the Christian merchant, had it
and his benefactions showered
the world. John Newton had it. Bish
op Latiaier had it: Isabella Graham
had it. Andrew .Fuller had it. The
great evangelists, Daniel Baker and
Doctor Nettleton and Truman Osborn
and Charles G. Finney had it. In my
boyhood I saw Truman Osborn rise to
preach in the villiage church at Somer
ville, N. J., and before he had given out
his text- or uttered a word, people in the
audience 'sobbed aloud with religions
emotion. It was the power from on
high. Once get it and nothing., can
stand before you. Satan goes down.
Caricature goes down. Infidelity goes
down, vtorldliness goes down. AU
opposition goes down.
Several times in the history of the
church and the world has this power
from on high been demonstrated. In
the seventeenth century, after a great
season ox moral depression, this power
from on high came down upon TiUot
son and Owen and Flavel and Baxter
and Banyan, and there was a deluge of
mercy higher than the top of the highest
mountains of sin. In the eighteenth
century, in .England and America, re
ligion was at low water mark. Wil
liam Cowper, writing of the clergy of
those days, said:
Exscvt a tew with Eli's spirit ileat
.Jfepbai and raineasaiay describe the
Hobbea and Chmbb had doae their
work. Bnt power from on Man
unon both the Wesley and Lady Hunt
ington, on the other side of the Atlantic,
and upon William Tenaant and Gilbert
Tenant and David Drainerd on this
side of the Atlantic, awl both hemis
phere felt the treacTbf a pa iflimnm, God.
Coming U a later date, there may be
here and there in this awKenee an aged
man or woman who can remember Ke w
York in 1931, when this power from on
high descended moat woodromuy. It
came jrooe pastors and congregations
and theaters and commercial establish
ments. Chatham Street Theater was
the scene of a most tremendons re
ligions a akening.
The bar room of the theater was
turned into a prayer room, and SM per
sons were present nt the list meeting.
For seventy successive nights religious
services were held in that theater, and
such scenes of mercy and salvation as
will be subjects of conversation and
congratulation among the ransomed in
glory as long as Heaven lasts. Bnt I
come to a later time 1857 remembered
by many who are here. I remember it
especially as I had just entered the
office of the ministry. It was a year of
hard times. A great panic had flung
hundreds of thousand of people penni
less. Starvation entered habitations
that had never before known a -want.
This nation in its extremity fell help
less before the Lord and cried for par
don and peace, and upon ministers and
laymen the power from on high de
scended. Engine houses, warerooms,
hotel parlors, museums, factories from
12 to 1 o'clock while the operatives were
resting, were opened for prayers and
sermons, and inquiry rooms and Bur
ton's old theater on Chambers street,
where our ancestors used to assemble
to laugh at the comedies, and all up and
down the streets, and out on the docks
and on the decks of ships lying at the
wharf, people sang "All hail the power
of Jesus' name," while others cried for
mercy. A great mass meeting of
Christians on a week day, in Jayne's
Hall, Philadelphia, telegraphed to Fal-
ton street prayer meeting, in New York,
saying: "Whai, hath God wrought?"
and a telegram went back saying: "Two
hundred souls saved at our meeting to-,
day." A ship came through the Nar
rows into our harbour, the captain re
porting that himself and all the crew
had been converted to God betwen New
Orleans and New York. In the busiest
-marts of our largest American cities
where the worshipers of mammon had
been counting their golden beads, men
began to calculate, "What shall it profit
a man if he gain the whole world and
lose his own soulV
In those days, what songs, what ser
mons, what turnings to God, what re
citals of thrilling experiences, what
prodigals brought home, what burning
tidings of souls saved, what serfdom of
sin emancipated, what wild rout of the
forces of darkness, what victories for
the truth! What millions on earth and
in Heaven are now thanking God for
1857, which, though the year of worse
financial calamity, was the year of
America's most glorious blessing. How
do you account for 1857, its spiritual
triumphs on the heels of its worldly
misfortune? It was what my text calls
the power from on high.
That was thirty-three years ago, and
though there have leen in various parts
of the land many stirrings of the Holy
Ghost, there has been no general awak
ening. Docs it not seem to jou that we
ought to have and may have the scenes
of power in 1857 eclipsed by the scenes
of power in 1SSU? The circumstances
are somewhat similar. While we have
not had National panic and universal
prostration, as in 1857, there has been
a stringency in the money market that
has put many families of the earth to
their wit's end. Large commercial in
terests collapsing have left multitudes
of employes without means of support.
The racked brains of business men have
almost or entirely given way. New il
lustrations all over the land of the fact
that riches have not only feet, on which
they walk slowlj' as they come, but
wings on which they speed when they
Rrethren in the gospel ministry! if
we spent half as much time in prayer as
we do in the preparation of our ser
mons nothing could stand before us.
Wc would have the power from on high
as we never have had it. Private mem-
liership of all Christendom! if we spent
half as much time in positive praj-er for
this influence as we do in thinking
about it and talking about it, there
would not be secretaries enough to take
down the names of those who would
want to give in their names for enlist
ment. Come! Come! All through the United
States and all through Christendom and
all around the world letus join hands in
holy pledge that we will call upon God
for the power. O, for the power from
on high, the power that came on Pente
cost; yea, on 10,000 Pentecosts. Such
times will come in our day if we have
the faith and the prayer and the conse
cration. As the power from on high in 1857 was
more remarkable in academies of music
and lyceum halls and theaters than in
churches, why not this winter of 1S91,
in these two academics of music, places
of secular entertainment. Why not
expect and why not have the power
from on high, comforting power,- arous
ing power, convicting power, convert
ing power, saving power, omnipotent
power? My opinion is that in this
cluster of cities by the Atlantic coast,
there are now 500,000 people ready to
accept the Gospel call, if, freed from all
the conventionalities of the church, it
were earnestly and with strong faith
presented to them. In these brilliant
assemblies there are hundreds who are
not frequenters of churches, and who
do not believe much, if at all, in the
ministers of religion or ecclesiastical
organizations. But God knows you
have struggles in which you need help
and bereavements in which you want
solace and persecutions in whichyou
ought to have defense, and -perplexities 1
in which you need guidance, and with a
profound thoughtfulness, you standby
the grave of the old year, and the cradle
of the young year, wondering where
you will be and what you wiU be when J.
"rolling years shaU cease" to move."
Power from on high descends upon them!
Men of New York and Brooklyn, I offer I

have had! I can tell from your careworn
countenances and the tears in your eyes
and the deep sigh yon hare just breathed
that yon want reinforcement, and here
it is, greater than Blacker when he rein-.

fany of my hearers to-day are what
the world calls, and what I would call,
splendid fellows, and they seem, happy
enough, and are jolly and oaligingaad
if I were in trouble I would go to them
with as much confidence as I would go
to my father, if he were yet alive. Bnt
when they go-telheir rooms at night or
when the excitements of social and
bariafi life are off, they are not con

than this world can off er.

who wish some counsel in regard to re

wife and danffhter. I turned to the
nd aaii: "Petnane yon
interest yourself these mat
ters?" "None whatever," was the re
ply, polite yet firm. Bnt before the
meeting had closed I saw his hand lifted
to his forehead, and his eyes closed, and
I said: "Sir, hare yon not changed
yonr mind and are yon not thoughtful
on this anbjeetr He said: "I
am; since coming to this seat,
I have sought and fcr-nd Christ as
my Saviour and I hare but one desire
more and that is, before I leave this
house to join my wife and daughter in
making profession of the Christian re

wrong side long enough." What was it

At the first communion after the dedi
cation of our former church 318 souls
stood up in the aisles and publicly
espoused the cause of Christ. At an
other time 4C0 souls: at another time
500, and our 4,500 membership were but
a small part of those who within those
sacred walls took upon themselves the
vows of the Christian. What turned
them? What saved them? Power from
the level? No! Power from on high.
Rut greater things are to be seen if
ever these cities and ever this world is
to betaken for God. There is one class
of men and women in all these assem
blages in whom I have especial interest,
and that is those who had good fathers
and mothers once, but they are dead.
What multitudes of us are orphans! We
may be 40, 50, 80 years old, but we never
get used to having father and mother
gone. O! how often we have had trou
bles that we would liked to have told
them, and wc always felt, as long as
father and mother were alive wc had
some one to whom we could go. Now
I would like to ask you if yon think that
all their prayers in "your behalf have
been answered. "No," you ssy, "but it
is too late, the old folks are gone now."
I must courteously contradict yon. It
is not too late.
I have a friend in the ministry, who
was attending the last hours of an aged
Christian, and my friend said to the old
Christian: "Is there no trouble on your
mind?" The old man turned his face to
the wall for a few moments and then
said: "Only one thing: I hope for the
salvation of my ten children, but not
one of them is yet saved, yet I am sure
they will be. God means to wait until
I am gone. So he died. When my
friend told of the circumstances eight of
the ten had found the Lord, and I have
no doubt the other two liefore this have
fouBd Him. O, that the long postponed
answers to prayer for you, my brother,
for you my sister, migfc t this hour de
scend in power from on high.
The history of thete unanswered
prayers for you God only knows. They
may have been offered in the solemn
birth hour. They may have been of
fered when yon were doim with scarlet
fever Or diphtheria, or membranous
croup". They may have been offered
some night when you were sound asleep
in the trundle bed, and your mother
came in to see if yon were rightly
covered in the cold winter night. They
may have been offered at that time
which comes at least once in almost
every one's (life when your father and
mother had hard work to make a living,
and-they feared 'that want would come
to them and you. They may have been
offered when the lips could no longer
move and the eyes were closed for the

General Miles that the Indian agents of
the South Dakota agencies le relieved
from further duty and that their places
lie filled by military officers, said that
he did not care to discuss the matter
further than to say that the subject hail
not been mentioned to him by any one
with authority to act in the matter. It
is believed, however, that should (Jen-
eral Miles recommendation lie sub
mitted to him by thj President for his
views, he would strongly oppose the
transfer. The agents sought to lie re

and any attempt to substitute a military
for a civil supervision of the Sioux
would undoubtedly lie met with vigorous
opposition by the Interior Department
The Commissioner of Indian Affairs
says that to the liest of his knowledge
and belief the Sioux Indians of South
Dakota are not starving, and that he
has reasons to think that the statements
regarding their destitution are grossly
exaggerated. It is true that Congress
has greatly reduced the appropriations
for the Sioux and other tribes, and that
the agreements made with them have
lieen only partially kept Whose fault
this is he could not saj he recent

Good and gracious God! What will
become of us, if after having had such a
devout and praying parentage, we never
pray for ourselves! We will pray. We
will begin now. O, for the power from

power to save Brooklyn and New York,
power of evangelism that shall sweep
across this continent like an ocean

nevercame under my eye, but it is so
sweet, no sobbing with pathos, so tri

aecident a year ago. I live in Clinton
place. As I had Iteen confined in the
office every day, last Thanksgiving a
year ago I found myself suffering from
symptoms of pneumonia. I believed
breathing would cure me, and one
evening in walking from 1'ark place
home I tried on how many exhalations
I could walk to Clinton place, twenty
five blocks of varying size, making a
distance of nearly a mile and a half.
"At first I found it difficult to hold
my breath for more than a few paces,
but by the time I reached Prince street
my lungs were working better. I was
in a profuse perspiration from head to
foot. It seemed that I hnd discovered
depths in my lungs I never thought
existed. Every inhalation seemed to go
down to iny very shoes. My feet felt
light ami I seemed to eat up the dis
tance. As I neared Clinton place I
began to feel distressed. I know
now that I did too much at first.
Various colors flashed before my
cj-es. When my breath went out I felt
empty. On arriving at Clinton place 1
had a sharp shooting pain across my
temples. When I stood still it seemed
as if my head would break, liut this
feeling gradually passed away ami in
half an hour I was feeling splendid. I
noted down the count of breaths that
first night 93.
"I kept up the practice from that day.

I made my way through the smoke
