ItiiHscIl of The Brooklyn Tabernacle
liroaohod hero twice today to In rue anil
attentive audiences. We report his
discourse rniin tlio text , " 1 , tin ; Lord
thy Cod am a jealous Cod , visit Ing the
Iniquities of tliu father * upon tliu chil
dren unto the third and fourth Kent-ra
tion of them that Imte me ; anil show
ing mercy unto thousands of them that
love mo and keep my coiiiniunilmentH"
( Deuteronomy v , 0 , 10) ) . A report of
the discourse follows :
No one of experience can question
the fact that our text Is corrohorated
by all our experiences In life. How
ever nnjiiHt some may claim It to be
that ( he children should Inherit the
weaknesses resulting from parental
dissipations and violations of the Dl-
vine law , the fact remains that however -
over atheism may question the exist
ence of a God or Inlldcllty doubt the
Inspiration of his Word , no one can
question the two facts of this text , (1) ( ) ,
that sin and Its penalty can be Inherit
ed and (2) ( ) the fact that God Is merci
ful to such as renounce sin and turn
to him and .seek to walk according to
his direction. However these bless
ings upon evil doers and their children
and these blessings upon well doers
and their posterity may be termed
natural laws and laws of heredity , It
does not alter the fact , because the Al
mighty Is the ono who made these
lawn of heredity.
Under the delusion handed down to
us from the "dark ages" that God
had condemned to eternal torment all
the children of Adam because of his
sin we are all Inclined properly
enough to feel rebellious against any
such matter and to assert that from
the standpoint of human reasoning
It would be entirely unjust to torture
the posterity of Adam eternally for
his transgression "original sin. " But
ns we get the eyes of our understand
ing opened to see what Is the real
penalty for sin. that It Is death , ex
tinction , and that our perfect parents ,
fully Informed respecting the divine
will , were culpable , worthy of death ,
nnd when wo learn further that what
ever Is enjoyed by Adam's posterity
In the way of life , however disad
vantageous the conditions , Is so
much of divine leniency and mercy
ajid comes so much short of being
the full penalty , death , extinction
then we begin to see that life under
nny conditions and disadvantages Is
. still a boon , better than extinction.
In Wrath Have Mercy , Lord.
"Recognizing " the wrath of God as
manifested In the death penalty ( not
in an eternity of torture ) we can see
that the Scriptures everywhere declare -
clare that the wrath of God Is resting
upon our race ; that every member of
it Is subject to this very penalty which
came upon father Adam and has been
entailed upon all of his posterity.
The Almighty Creator did not wait
for us to cry out for his pity and
compassion , but from the very be
ginning , foreknowing our fall Into sin.
lie bad the plan arranged for our re
demption and ultimate recovery from
this condition of wrath , curse , death.
"We are informed that our Lord Jesus
was the I.amb of God slain from the
foundation of the world In the Divine
purpose and arrangement though only
now being made manifest to the
Chutvh and shortly to the world. Thus
viewed there has been no Injustice
practised against our race In permit
ting the children to share with their
father Adam In his penalty. Uather
they had esteemed It and do esteem It
better than the sentence Itself , and
furthermore In the Lord's providences
the world's present experiences In the
fall and later on In the recovery from
the fall In the hands of the great Re-
dcemer during the Millennial Ago , Is
to prove a lesson , a schooling. In the
exceeding sin fulness of sin. which the
race as a whole wilt never forget and
out of which many ( now the Church ,
later on Hie world ) will draw lessons
of wNdoin and grace.
Looking still more deeply Into the
Divine IMan as it Is revealed In the
"Lord's Word for those who are his
( Psalm xxv. M ) . we Hnd a particular
reason why It was not only advisable
but necessary that this law of heredity
should operate In our race , oven though
It brought in Its train a terrible list of
experiences to our race. The reason
for this Is based upon one element of
the Divine character Justice the very
clement which at one time wo sup
posed was violated by this law of
heredity. As our eyes open to the
teaching of the Scriptures we perceive
that If God had not permitted his law
of heredity to operate , but had per
mitted each Individual of the race to
c'omo forth to perfection and to stand
an Individual trial such as father Adam
was subject to. It would doubtless
have meant that at least one-half of
the race , possibly more , would have
deliberately chosen a course of sin as
father Adam chose It. To expect more
than one-half to be obedient would bo
unreasonable. Hather , from what we
see about us In the experiences of life ,
we would have been Hablo to conclude
that only a very small majority , per
haps one-tenth , would have been obe
dient to God. while the remaining nine-
tenths would have been disobedient.
Some might nsk , .Would not ven
that have been better than the Divine
arrangement as wo see It operating
now , that the whole race should suf
fer for ouo mini's disobedience ? Wu
answer , Not Not according to the tes
timony or ttie Ncriptnros. The Bible
shown us that while this law of retri
bution has worked such terrible havoc
In Adam and his race for now 0,000
yeaiH-while 20.000,000.000 have been
horn In sin and sorrow and pain and
after a few yeai-s of trouble have died
In sorrow and pain , nevertheless In
God's due time all of these shall have
more favorable opportunities of know
ing of God's true character and of at
taining to a full character development
In his likeness during the Millennial
Age. This means that probably more
will gain eternal life and blessing un
der the divine arrangement ns we have
It than we could reasonably expect
would have been saved had the Lord
not provided this law of heredity and
condemnation of all , but on the con
trary had permitted each to be born
In perfection and to stand his trial as
between loyalty to God with the reward -
ward of eternal life or disobedience
punished with death. Hut wo shall
see that It means much more than this.
Condemned In One Redeemed by One.
A great economic law Is connected
with the divine arrangement : The
condemnation of a race In one man's
loins because of his transgression
made possible the divine arrangement
that a Second Man should pay the
penalty for the first and redeem both
him and all who were In him at the
time of his condemnation. This Is at
once a demonstration of Divine Wis
dom and of Divine Justice. Suppose ,
for Instance , that the law of heredity
had not prevailed , had not been In
stituted by our Lord , but that each
Individual had como forth perfect nnd
had been personally placed on trial
and been personally condemned to
duath. Would It not have required an
Individual savior for each ono con
demned under such an arrangement ?
Surely It would. Hence , had one-half
of the race proven themselves sinners
and been personally condemned It
would either have been necessary to
avoid redemption altogether or to re
deem the sinner half of the race , by
giving a life for a life a perfect be
ing's sacrifice for or Instead of each
Imperfect life. Estimating the total
number of our race at 20,000,000,000 ,
Justice would have been obliged to
require 10,000.000.000 of perfect be
ings to be offered as the ransom price
for the 10.000.000.000 of sinners.
Under the very best estimate that
wo can possibly make , this would
have required the death of all the
perfect ones of the race as redeemers
for all the Imperfect members of the
race , and what a havoc that would
have Implied with just as many dy
ing as under present conditions , name
ly , one-half as sinners and the other
half as redeemers , ransoms. Hesldcs ,
we perceive that It would not have
been just on the part of the Almighty
to compel the righteous ones to suf
fer for the unrighteous as their re
deemers , hence there would have been
no assurance even then that any but
a fraction of the sinner race would
have been redeemed. On the contrary ,
how wise , conservative and econom
ical was the Divine arrangement that
by one man's disobedience under the
laws of heredity the many would be
born sinners and sharers In his pen
alty , death , and that then In due time
one Savior , one perfect one. the "man
Christ Jesus. " might redeem Adam
and. redeeming him. redeem all of
his race from the death sentence , the
curse , the wrath of God , and as a
roMilt of the redemption obtain the
right , the authority , the power during
his Millennial Kingdom and In asso
ciation with his glorified Church of
the Gospel Age. to bless all the fam
ilies of the earth and to uplift as
many as would be willing out of all
their Ignorance , weakness and sinful
and dying conditions to all that was
lost In Adam.
Wo have seen that In harmony with
, the Divine law It would not have
been Just for the Heavenly Father to
obligate the righteous to die for sin
ners and that hence the redemption of
Ihe sinners would have been prob
lematical very doubtful. Hut on the
contrary the Heavenly Father well
knew In advance the loyalty of his
First-Begotten , his only Begotten , who
Is declared to have been the "begin
ning of the creation of God" ( Revcla-
tlon III , M ) . He knew not only of Jesus'
loyalty but that his experiences with
him In glory would every way qualify
our Lord for the tests and the sacrifices
necessary for the redemption of the
race with his own precious blood.
The Scriptures assure us furthermore
that the Father set before him some
certain Joys , certain blessings , certain
promises. In connection with this work
of man's redemption : as we read ,
"Whofor , the Joy set before him en
dured the cross , despising the shame ,
and Is now set down on the right hand
of the majesty on high" ( Hebrews
xll , 2) ) .
Retributive Joys and Rewards.
Vfo are to remember , too. that tb
Scriptures distinctly teach that the
condition of the affairs of our world-
sin , retributive punishment , the re
demptlon through Jesus , the- call of
the Church and their sufferings with
their Redeemer and tliu promises of
future blessing and glory both for the
Church and for the world are sub
jects In which the angels of God are
Interested. As the Apostle Peter says.
"Of which salvation the prophets have
enquired and searched diligently. . . .
Searching what or what manner of
uinu tne Spirit of Christ wtncn wiw m
thum did signify , when It testified be
forehand the HUfferlngs of Christ , and
the glory that should follow. . . .
Which things the angels desire to look
Into" (1 ( Peter , I , 10-12K They won
dered when all the sufferings of Jesus
and 'he Church would be completed
and when the glory time would come
and recovery from sin and death con
ditions : when God's purpose would
thus ripen and bear fruit In the recov-
pry of those who fell from his favor
In Adam's disobedience but were re
deemed by the precious blood.
The great lesson of what constitutes
disobedience , and how serious a sin It
Is , and what It would lead to If allowed
to take Its course , was Illustrated In
man's experiences ; and all the hosts of
angels looked on with amazement , no
doubt. God's Justice was fully dem
onstrated In the Inlllctlon of the death
penalty and the permission of Its In
roads upon the mental , moral and
physical perfection of his creatures ,
bringing many of the race down al
most to brutality. God's Love was
manifested In the gift of his Son. In
the arrangement of his plan by which
for the Joy set before him , Jesus might
become Adam's Redeemer , and the
Bridegroom of the Elect Church and
ultimately the great King of Glory
who , during the Millennial Age , Is to
restore , revive and bless and test
Adam and all his race.
Christ and the Church Crucially Tested
We cannot wonder If nil the holy an
gels looked on In amazement as they
beheld the Only Begotten Son of God
leave the "glory which he had before
the world was" and humble himself to
take human nature to be born a man
that he might redeem Adam and his
race. It must have seemed wonderful
to them not only that the Heavenly
Father would arrange such a plan but
wonderful also that the glorious "Only
Begotten. " "First-Born. " should be the
one to whom the proposition would bo
made to show his faith and love for
the Father , to do his will to the ex
tent of such a sacrifice , not only of
glory , but , eventually , of life. They
had yet to see a further operation of
the divine law of retribution operating
In Jesus for his blessing and honor.
So Intent were they In looking at the
humiliation of the Only Begotten , and
then nt his death , that apparently they
did not so carefully note the fact that
the Heavenly Father , 'iad set before
him great joys , great blessings , great
exaltation , when he should finish his
Already the Only Begotten was next
to the Father In glory and dignity ,
honor and power ; what more of dlvlno
honor could be bestowed upon even
the First-Born of every creature ?
The Only Begotten himself appears
not to have thought particularly of
the promised glory : The joy set be
fore him , however , seems to have
been that he would do the Father's
will and thus demonstrate his abso
lute loyalty even unto death. While ,
no doubt. It was a Joy to the Lord
to be the Father's Agent In the rescue
of Adam and his race from sin and
death , nevertheless we believe that
his chief Joy In connection with the
matter was that thus he might demon
strate to the Father his absolute love
by his submission and obedience.
Our Lord's own words were , "Father ,
glorify ihou me with the glory which
I had with thee before the world
was" ( John xvll. 5) ) . lie knew of
the Father's proposed exaltation of. I
him as a reward , but he did not men-1 I
tion this ; lie would merely ask of the
Father that when he had accom- |
pllshed the Divine purpose ho might
have back the same honor and posi
tion and dlvlno favor which he had ; I
laid aside when he humbled himself I '
to become Adam's redemption price ,
the world's Savior. Such modesty
and loyalty arc difficult for us to
comprehend because of our fallen.
But the Apostle explains to us.
speaking under the j.ower of inspira
tion , that because of uur Lord's obedi
ence In leaving the glory and becom
ing a man and dyii-g for our sins ,
therefore "God hath highly exalted
him and given him a name above ev
ery name , that at the name of Jesus
every kncfl should boiv. of things In
heaven and things In earth" ( Phillppl-
aus II. 0 , 10Else whore In the Scrip
tures we ari ! assured that our Lord be
came partaker of the Divine nature In
his resurrection ; that thus ho attained a
reward far above anything that could
have been thought , not only above an
gels , but also far above his own prehu
man condition. In thus rewarding the
faithful the Lord Is carrying out the
spirit of our text he lus been exem
plifying what Is otherwise taught In
the Scriptures "whatsoever man sow-
cth that shall he also renp" ( Galatlans
rl , 7) ) . Adam sowed dlsoboUlence and he
nnd his race have reaped a terrible
harvest of degradation , Buttering and
death. The Only Begotten sowed obe
dience , as prophetically expressed of
him at the time of his baptism , "I de
light to do thy will , O my God : thy law
Is written In my heart" ( Psalm xl , 8) ) .
Laying down his life In harmony with
the Divine program was his sowing
and the reaping at the resurrection
was glory , honor and Immortality , the
divine nature. How richly Jehovah re
wards every demonstration of loyalty
to himself and the principles of right

TELEPHONE UNDER THE SEA.
It's Now Possible to Talk From Lon
don to Paris.
London , June 20. Indicating the
possibility of laying a trans-Atlantic
telephone cable the work of connect
ing France and England by submarine
wire , which has just been completed ,
is regarded by engineers as a most
Interesting experiment. Many obsta
cles were met and overcome and In
part the problems of a successful long
distance submarine cable were solved.
The total length of the cable Is twen
ty-four miles and it weighs 275 tons ,
the cost of laying , being given ns
As soon as the weather was calm
enough , operations were started at
Dover , when the Faraday commenced
to get the ends of the eighteen nauti
cal miles of cable ashore. The loose
end of the cable and the buoy to
which It was attached was wound on
board and then placed celled up on a
raft. The raft was then rowed
ashore , the cable being paid out all
the time until the end was landed.
The process was then repeated at
Cape Grlsnez. This new form of
cable is a vast improvement on all
other submarine telephone lines , for
despite the fact that so much of it is
under water , it will be possible to
speak from Glasgow to Paris. . In
other words , this invention makes it
possible to speak over more than
twice the distance than was formerly
possible , so that it is now practica
ble to "ring ii ] ) " Holland , Dublin or
Paris from England.
The speaking efficiency of the ordi
nary submarine cable limits consider
ably the distance over which speech
is commercially possible , hut the now
cable has what are called "pupin , " or
"loading" coils made of iron. It has
boon found that these Introduced nt

STOP ! THINK ! SAVE !
Manker Harris Says There's Too Much
Chicago. June 20. X. W. Harris ,
president of the Harris Trust and Sav
ings bank , sees in the general busi
ness situation some indications of a
forced reaction. He expresses tills
with caution , hut it is n conviction
based upon wide experience in not
ing business symptoms ns rellected in
the market for high grade bonds. Mr.
Harris has just returned from Europe
and yesterday , in response to inquiries
"The aggregate amount of bonds
put on the Xew York market during
the last year has practically absorbed
the funds held for the purpose of pur
chasing bonds by the various institu
tions usually active in that direction ,
and to some extent has forced the
bankers to seek foreign markets and
to accept low prices.
"At the same time , this action has
aided this country in liquidating the
amount owed to foreigners for funds
borrowed of them during the panic of
three years ago , and has also offset
to some extent the expenditures for
luxuries purchased abroad , as well as
large sums spent by Americans an
nually In Europe.
The cause of the present financial
situation Is plain. It is because a
large class of American people run
wild in useless extravagance. They
are buying several hundred million
dollars' worth of automobiles annual
ly , and these purchases bring with
them other large expenditures for the
maintenance , for outing parties , etc.
"Other extravagances are Indulged
in by all classes of people. As a re
sult of our Indulgence in luxuries wo
as a people have made of the cost of
the production of materials which eu
tor Into the necessities of life in many
cases too high for export trade.
"Tho American farmer , who has
usually been the economical , conserva
tive , and saving portion of our popu
lation , has also become extravagant.
The farmer today Is mortgaging land
which ho freed from mortgages only
n few years ago and Is putting the
proceeds into now lands at apparent
ly high prices or Into extravagances of
ono kind or another.
To illustrate :
"The vlco president of one of our
largo ! Ufa Insurance companies , which
makes n specialty of loaning upon
farm property , recently made the fol
lowing statement to mo : 'I am sur
prised nt the general demand for
money tipon our company. Our loan
agents throughout the west and north
west are pressing us with largo do
" 'Ono agency In particular , to which
wo had assigned $1,000.000 for this
year , has already exhausted Its as
signment and Is asking tor another
J 1.000,000. We arc simply holding It
oft' , nnd holding up our rates. In no
place are we making a loan under
0 percent. I quite agree with you In
regard tri the extravagance of our people
ple and am rather startled at what
1 have seen. '
"This great borrowing of funds Is
surely caused by a reckless extrava
gance and It Is time that a large class
of our people should 'call a halt * In
their expenditures ; otherwlso. It
seems to me , they may soon be forced
to do so.
"With the great resources of this
country. It Is not popular to call at
tention to the other side of the pic
ture , but It becomes n public duty to
give warning when extravagance Is ns
manifest ns at present. Wo pride our
selves on being the richest nation in
the world , but even we can be too
wasteful of our unrivaled resources.
"If we are only prudent and saving
we can become n great power commer
cially the world over , but a continu
ance of our present extravagant In
clination Is sure to bring about n
forced reaction , nnd I see some indi
cations of n tendency In that direc
tion already. What wo as a people
now need is common sense economy.
"During the last five years the farm
er has been able to obtain exception
ally high prices for his products , and
wages In general are higher than ever
before , but Instead of a surplus being
saved for future contingencies , the
wild extravagance of a large number
of people , and also of many of our
large cities , Is resulting in the borrow
ing of unusual amounts of money by
the Individual , by the corporation , and
by the municipality.
"I find that municipal bonds are
selling at nbout the low panic prices
of three years ago. Many of the sav
ings banks in New England arc find
ing that their deposits are tending to
decrease Instead of increase. "

URGE KNOX FOR GOVERNOR.
Pennsylvania G. O. P. Leaders Want
Secretary to Run.
Washington , Juno 20. If the repub
licans of Pennsylvania can bring It
about , Philander C. Knox , now secre
tary of state , will be their candidate
for the governorship of the Keystone
It is known pressure has been ap
plied to the secretary to induce him
to abandon the field of diplomacy ami
enter that of state politics. It is even
said the president has been approach
ed to give his consent to this move.
The republican organization leaders
base their pica upon the fact that a
spirit of revolt has entered Pennsyl
vania and they must have a strong
man of national prestige to insure vic
tory next November.
It is extremely doubtful if the pres
ident would bo willing to part with
Mr. Knox. Ho would do so if tho. lat
ter requested it , but his disposition
would be to discourage the secretary
and make every effort to induce him
to remain In the cabinet.
Reports have been current for some
time that Mr. Knox was not happy in
the state department and would pre
fer to return to a more congenial Held
of public opportunity. These reports
have been declared untrue , and there
Is no doubt the secretary has devoted
himself earnestly to the transaction
of diplomatic business.
Mr. Knox has Inaugurated several
policies which nro close to his heart ,
and he may deslro to see them more
firmly fixed before he retires.
The Pennsylvania governorship is
attractive to a son of the state , and
It Is possible Mr. Knox may prove will
ing to permit himself to bo a candi
date. He Is out of the city , and when
he returns Is expected to announce his

After Thirty-One Days on Water , Doc
tor Gayer Is In Perfect Henlth.
Now York , Juno 20. Dr. Gusttiv A.
Gayer , who broke his thlrty-llrst-day
fast said that' ho was feeling "hully
and could have kept up his fast for
another month. Doctor Gayer drank
only water a glass every hour In
the thirty-ono days. Until next week
ho will drink milk as his only food.
Asked why ho had fasted for HO long ,
Doctor Gayer replied that ho had done
It with the Intention of demonstrating
the superiority of mind over matter ,
as well as his ability to control his
appetite. He admitted that It was a
hard task at first and required con
siderable courage , but declared that
the exhilaration which ho foil after
tlio first few days amply repaid him
for any discomfort.
Doctor Gayer lost thirty-live pounds ,
hut a committee of physicians who ex
amined him after the ordeal was over ,
reported that his pulse and tempera
ture were normal and that he was in
perfect health. His blood they found
was slightly thicker than normal , but
was still in good condition.
"All one needs , " ho declared , "Is n
good supply of will power and courage
to carry one through a month's siege.
Of course , there are moments when
things seem hard , and the temptation
is strong to give in , but by liberal dos
es of self suggestion I managed to
stave off any serious thought of quit
ting. Tlio first few days were difficult
but after thorn my e'Yort was compara
tively easy. I kept away from the
smell of food as much as possible and
worked hard at what I had before me.
And above all I slept long and sound ,
telling myself over and over before re
tiring or rising that I was feeling per
fectly well. "
