The capacity ot Trinity cathedral was
taxed lust night by the audience that
gathered to hoar tlio last of Dean Gard
ner's advent sui-mons , The sermon ,
from tliu text found In lliu llilrly-tliinl
verso of tlic twenty-third chapter of
Matthews , "How Can You Kscapo the
Damnation of Hell1 is briefly outlined
as follows :
I would approach this subject with feollnps
of awe mid satlncs * . I wuuld approach It
only because Us consideration Is .1 part of my
duty , l cannot brlnjr myself willingly to say
much orxpwiK often on tills dismal topic. 1
do not think innrli of penjilo who must

by tin ; fcnr of an avenger behind them that
haiijfs iiiion their footsteps. Hut because. It
Is ono of ( ho truths of the bllilo I not
Hhrlnk from Us contemplation. And tlrst
hell Is a ccrhdntv. Basing our conclusions
on revelation wo find that In hundruds of
places direct ami definite rcferenco Is made
to hell In the bible , "Tho wicked shall bo
turned Into bell and all the people that for-
Kot ( ! od. " ICven our blessed S.ivlonr , from
whose lips foil so elton words ot love and
chailty. spoke unreserved and unequivocally
regarding eternal penalty or pun
ishment. It cannot bo called
exactly a fundamental doelilno
of tbo Christian faith. Hut more than this
may liu wald of It , that a latcer pirt of thn
Christian creed would not exist bad it not
benn for the existence of a boll a power of
evil. Thecxlstuncu of a law presupposed
the need of a law. The facts ot the Incarna
tion and tlic atonement are a statement of
the awiul price paid lor something paid In
the conmiot of Satan , the subverting of the
power of bell.
Secondly , hell Is Inevitable. Thorc must
bo a boll. Tbo fact of heaven has Its coioll-
ary In boll. It Is not a condition to which
i > oor creatures are assigned by an arbitrary
jmluo , but It Is a condition tlio conns of
which are In human nature. Heaven or bell
are already be un In us now. Contemplate
the traitor .hulas , ot whom It was said when
ho died that be bad mine to his own place.
Think how splendidly hu had earned his
wages of eternal death. Jealousy , theft ,
hypocrisy , lying , murder. What an Impulse
tor eternity Ihoso awful sins bad given him.
Thev had given him a certain headway or
Thirdly , what Is bell ? It Is the opposite of
heaven. We must not latub off tbo Idea of
tbo existence of n hell because inanvof the
( statements eoiicernlnir It arc materialistic.
Kternal lire , lalco of brimstone , etc. , are only
( strong expressions used to convey Impres
sions. They are not exact descriptions. Wo
nre In danger of losing faith In tbo real by
our making a jest of tlio lUuratlvc. :
Hull Is a condition of eternal separation
from ( ! od and good. Think of what that
means. Think of the intant in Its inintv
and Hvycctnessl Think one you have "loved
long since and lost awhile ! Think deeply
of all tlio dearest , fondest ties of social and
domestic llful Then fancy sepaiation , eter
nal separation fumi these. Those of us who
aio rnnnble of spiritual delights or
whoso huhcst pk'asures are ( hose ( bat come
111 the exercise of mental or emotional
powers , will understand the awful pain , tbo
intolerable bitterness and anguish ot being
forever obliged to consoit with tbo bestial
depravity and degradation which can be
found even here In Umalm.
Fourthly Hell realized and foreseen
awakens us to repentance and new life.
To-day the voice of grace cries escape to the
mountain. Tbo voice ot John Baptist rings
out as of old at In Hothlehein , "Repent ye ,
for the kingdom of heaven Is at band. " It
is the same message. The angel said escapn
escape tlio burning of Sodom. Tlio I5ap-
tlst repent and enter the kingdom of heaven.
There may you learn tbo title beauty of
holiness and the happiness of divine cooperation
eration In your moral efforts. You will not
live yourselves , but Christ shall In you the
hope of glory.
It Is titiscntinl to All Who Hope For
llov. Willnrd Scott prcnuhcd .yesterday
morning from Matt. ! J:11 : , in the St.
Mary's Avenue Congregational church.
"I indeed bapti/c you with water unto
repentance , but ho Hhall bapti/.o' you with
the Holy ( Jhost and with lire. "
There Is , then , another and a better
baptism than that with water , whether
it bo i > y sprinkling , pouring or immers
ing , a baptism "with the Holy Ghost and
with lire , " thn baptism , especially of
Jesus , and , for my part , IdonotHo much
care how tlio water has touched mo , or
indeed whether as a last resort it has
touched nip at all , provided this better
baptism lists conic upon mo.
In Buying this , I do not niako a Haunt
at our usual Christian ordinance. It is a
beautiful suggestive and obligatory sacra
ment which no one has a right to deny
or to omit , wlm accepts the atonement of
Jesus as his hope and the commands of
Jesus as his rule of life. Wo of
tht ) ministry arc bidden preach
and bapti/.e. You of the audience
are bidden repent and bo baptized.
Neither of us has any alternative in the
matter. The ordiuancn is not advisory ,
prudential or local. It is mandatory ,
directory and universal. Christ did not
leave on the earth a church as a matter
of option , but of authority , and cvorv
nun who has a hope of salvation through
Jesus is under command to aeknowlodgo
him by water , nor can any snob one
hope for the divine blessing until he has
When 1 say , then , that it is a matter of
less moment to mo whether I have re
ceived the baptism with water than that
with the. Holy Ghost. 1 speak only of
degrees. One may bolter be bereft of
the former than of tliu latter , yol , as
people run. the former is tbo one em-
phnsl/.od. We hav < i witnessed a combat
imir iturersmco woworo able to dis
tinguish between religious ideas. It has
divided our minds , our homos , and our
t'ommunitle.s. Jt has been exalted to a
vHilc iiiffiim in religious faith. It has
shut up the Lord's supper ( o some and
from some , and , in Mime instances ,
lias striven to do the sanm
ovuii with heaven , nrolhrt'ii , J
bollovu this to bo wrong , and that
wo aught to stop it. Tlmru is not a
question in the whole twbjoct which
bhonUI occupy the position with us of an
article of faith. Vet they are annoying
and dividing us. AItn \ our present scripture -
turo In our hands wo. shall never agree as
' to the mutters : il issue. It must bo per
mitted to each to bollevo and act for him-
fielf , Let us then so act in fraternal fel
lowship ami work together with common
love and mutual .support for tliu water Is
not saving. It but Dignities a salutation ,
iind that partakers ot a common .salvation
are brethren ,
lint , beyond this , inferior baptism ,
which so exercise's us , Is another thu
imptism "with the Holy Uhostand with
lire" the baptism of Jesus ami if , con
cerning Ihe former wo are too zealous ,
oeriaiiily concerning this latter wo are
too indillbrent. Yet , it is thu baptism.
That with water is of John and of the
disciples. Jesus made almost no use ot
It. There is .but one verse in the now
testament which ovdn Migguitslhat ho over
innploycd it. Hu committed it to men.
The belter baptism he kept for himself.
It Is thu unction from on high. No pas >
.tor can bo its. medium. The high priest
of the old Hebrew days was sot apart by
three ceremonials the washing of water ,
the anoiuliug of oil and the sacrifice
So those who enter Into the fullness of
tbo Christian priesthood to day aru set
apart by Ihc baplism of water , the bap
tism of the Holy Ghost and the sacrillco
of self In the service of Jesus. Most
Christians have passed only the first.
They have had no pontccnat. The endu
ing from < ! od has not filled them. Hy
the washing of water they may be sup
posed to have become clean , but they
have have not become warm. They arc
cold clean but cold. They need to Ite
sot on fire
"To be ailama
With the love of Jesus' name. "
The while-robed In hoavcn are repre
sented as pure because they have washed
their robes , but they are not stolid white
masks of purity" They sing hallelujah.
They have received more than mere
xJow , that Ibis possession is not more
gonoiid among us is dne to several nat
ural cuitves :
1. It Is not considered neces
sary to salvation and people are
willing to do witi' as lltllo religion
in this life as will ansjver the purpose of
saving. They wish to bo coed but not
too good. It Is not convenient to be
over religious. If the baptism of water
will do the rest may bo deferred l .H it is
specially needed. Hut what guarantee
has any onu that his baptism al thn font
was worthily received if It be never
owned by the descent of the spirit ? The
candidate may have been mlstakcnod
and the clergyman may have done only _
as lie was requested. Who is to conlitm
the ordinance V W ator may have lioen
sprinkled on a sinning head who shall
toll us ? The c is no continuation
by the sending from on high , and if that
comes not thu hope of safety is ill-cher
ished. Whim Jesus was baptized thn
dove of approval came -camo at once ,
and , alas I for him who hahad no ac
knowledgment , of his repentance , except
sued as the minister has boon able to irtve.
2. Hut our manner of social life is not
favorable. A public ptofession is some
thing of an ndvantage. It is re-
spcctabic to bo u Christian if
ono boars the honor lightly. A
chief seat in tlio modern synagogue is
still loved , at least on Sunday morning.
Hut a further development oi grace inter
feres. One cannot have much nso for
prayer-meetings and revivals without
losing ground , One's religion , like a
turkey at Christmas , should not be over
done , so , social religion is popular , while
evangelistic religion is not. What a
season wo are now approaching in mem
ory of the birth of a Saviour ! How little
lik'o what one would expect , who knew
only tbo btory in Luke's gospel. The
angels sanir "peace , " but our Christmas
tide Is turmoil. Our hymnals say "joy , "
but wo are worn out with anxiety and
activity. The Magi brought worship , but
wo herald the divine day with pop-corn ,
candy , pin-cushions , dainty aprons ,
sleigh-bells , ribboned whips and robes ,
and within the home , turkey , celery and
cranberry-sauce. December is the month
of burdens , when it should bo the blessed
month. My religion is largely a religion
of secularism. Wo do not wish tlio
baptism of the spirit , and , like the des-
ciploson Gallilcc , Jesus is not come to
us , .and He will not come. There is no
room for Him , bill there is need
for Him , and our religion must pass
on from the baplism of water to the bap-
tim of the Holy Ghost before it shall
have cither safety or power. It may bo
convenient or inconvenient to do so , but
it is right.
U. Hut business calls arc pressing , and ,
to watch people , one would suppose that
the first great commandment was "to do
business' and that the second was like
unto it , as though the whole of life was
wrapped up in one word business. In
a recent number of "Harper's Young
People11 there is given an illustration of
modern methods of trading which is lee
daft to bo omitted. An old negro of a
southern family has brought to the top
"of the old cast hill"a great , roomy sleii ,
bis own make , as a present to bis mas
ter's son. Poet , who complains that "it
isn't ' built for speed not entirely" at
which old Kctiben makes his 'rejoinder :
"Dis sled yent no time-serber. Yo
senV Mursu Poet , dor yent no special
reason fo' gcttin' to do bottom oblatluI. |
1 reckons do bottom ob dat olc East hill
will las' till dis sled got dar every time ;
dal bottom yent gwino to fall out. Dat
a reg'lar Yankee trick to go jim-iam-
mm' down dat hill , knocking
obor obor.vl'ing on do road and gittm'
dar bofo' oberynody else. Dis sled wasn't
made on dat idee. " Yet that is just the
Yankee method in vogue of doing busi
ness , and where a man tries to be a Chris
tian and a man of business at once the
former duty is often left ill-cared for. It
needs to bo said again and again that to
business is not the first and great com
mandment , but that it is to "hove the
Lord thy God. " ami the proof that such a
love is in the heart is found in the pres
ence in us of the Holy Uhost , who is the
divine witness in his people. To luck
that presence is to laeo the evidence oo
regeneration and all the waters of thy
Allontic heaped in baptism upon ans
candidate is lei a testimony ot onc'f
right relation to ( ! od than the sense of
this Divine indwelling. May God help
us to seek and obtain that baptism !
The llov. O , .V. KitvItlKo'H Sermon nt
tlio Se\vnrl Street M. 10. Clmroli.
At the Sownril Street M. K. church yes
terday morning , the pastor , Itev. C. W.
Savidge preached an able sermon on the
subject of "Tho Danger and Use of
Riches. " The following Is an outline of
the sermon from the text from Timothy.
"Hut they that will bo rich fall into a
temptation and a snare , but thou oh man
of God lice these tldncs and follow after
righteousness , goodness , faith , love ,
iKiticnco , incokness1 ; First wo sou God's '
estimate of money in Ibis toxt. God does
not place money among the most precious
things. Ho bays "wisdom is bolter
than gold" in tbo Proverbs ,
Ho says , "A good name is rather to bo
chosen than great riches , " 1'rov.21. . He
sajH "Tho trial of our faith is more prec
ious than Hold , " in 1st Peter 1-7. And he
gives us the reasons for saying what ho
does. He says , "Itlehes arc not abiding , "
( Prov. 23-5 , ) for riches certainly make
themselves wings , they fly away as an
eagle toward heaven. The ferryboat
over the Jordan of death never carried
anything heavier than an immortal soul.
Another of his reasons is that riches don't
tiutlMy "Ho thai loveth silver shall not
bo satisfied with silver. " The best men
ami women have agreed with God on
this ,
George Ilurbo.rt says. "Gold llion may'
that , "
Mrs. llrownlng , in Aurora Leigh , says :
"My soul is not a ] pauper , I can live
without alms troiu men , ami it must bo
in heaven instead of earth. 1-et heaven
look to it , I am not afraid. "
Looking into the text again wo PO that
some determined tojio rich , they will bo
rich. This was true when Paul wrote lo
Timothy. It was true when John Wesley
spoke to thu great crowds in Kncland ,
but it is more tritu than ovor. it is In Iho
very air wo broatho. Money is as drunk
now on nujuoy as men are on liquors.
Our country furnUhos the greatest on
portiinity for money gathennir. Now
empires are snnncmg up richer than
those of thn old Cea.surs. Mwi who will
be rich aru founil oven wilhiii Iho pale of
the church , and even practice the form ?
of piety.
Men bollevo tljat wealth , will bring
them position , happiness and power , and
many wish to leave their children woll-
to-do , but Ike only .fortune you can'leavo
your child is tile fortune you put In bis
head and heart.
Many who started rich sleep in the
potter's field and in the suicidu'ti grave.
Aguiu the lust tells m of the great
evils resulting from the wrong use of
money. Look at Alexander's history as
recorded in the book- written by Abbott ,
livery crime known to man can bo laid
at the door of mammon worship. Mur
der , robbery , dishonesty , falsehood ,
lying the poor , neglected man's nature
dwarfed and crippled. The love of
money is responsible for all those.
One of the old cardinals on his death
bed tilled a basin with gold and bad it
.set near him , and he ran his inflamed
hands down through the gold , turnip } ' it
up in the basin. Money hiul been his
ruin. There are men in tlio church to-day
who do not know that money is their
ruin ,
The last verso In this text shows us that
the man of God should use his money
wisely. God wants bo '
us to self-support-
ing. Ho says : "Ho that providcth not
for his own , especially for his own house ,
hath denied Ihc faith and is worse than
an infidel.1 Ho say * In Psalm M : "If
riches increase set not your heart upon
Mr.iWesloy had three rules for money ,
which three rules ho got from God's
book :
Make all you can.
Save all you can.
( iiye all you can.
What grand objects the Christian has
to-tiny to contribute lo. His own home
to Mipi.'orl , his own church , the poor
about him , lie takes a hand in sending
the gospel abroad , in building colleges
and schools of Jciirning for iho j'ouiig.
May wo bo wise and i' ithful ftitwards of
what God has put in our hands , for Ho
has said : "Occupy till I come. "
Ucv. A. Jacobs Hcriiion nt tlic Iap- !
tlst. Church linst Nl lit.
The First Uaplist church , at the corner
of Fifteenth and Davenport streets , was
well filled last night to hear the Rev. A.
Jacobs , the European evangelist , who ,
niter the reading of the lesson from the
ninetieth psalm by the Rev. Ilcaglo , took
for his text II Kings ivS3 : : "Run now , I
pray thce. , to meet her and say unto her ,
Is it well with theo ? Is it well with thy
husband ? Is il well with the child ? And
she answered , It Is well. "
The need of the ago Is family religion.
Each home should bo ono noted tor piety ,
holiness and pure religion. My reading Ihe
fccrintnro we iind Jbat very few families
could say , "It is well with IH. " If this
miestlon bad been asked of Kve she must
have said , "No. It Is not well with me. " Her
youngest son was slain and her oldest a mur
derer. Noah's wife must have made the
same answer when she thought of tlio eurso
which bad been inflicted by Ids father on her
youngest son. The patriarch Abraham bad
similar sorrow on account of Ishinael.
IScbecca , too , must have bad tliesanie trouble
from tbo quarrel of ICssuti and Jacob. Tbo
former gousht the bitter's lite , and .Jacob was
forced to lly for lofiiRO and sleep out on tbo
plain with a stotio for bis pillow ,
liven the prophet Samuel must have
bait bis heart wrung because bis children
walked not In tbo footsteps of their fattier.
Jacob exclaimed In angnisb , "J shall go down
to the grave mourning the conduct of my
son Iteuben and the loss Joseph. " and the
world lias sounded lor centuries with tbo cry
of parenlhal a-'ony "o Absalom , my son.
my son" Unt the woman In the text could
say II was well with her because bite bad fol
lowed ( Jod's command.
"Js it well with yon husbands"said the
speaker addtesslng himself to tbo married
men in his audience. They ought to be able
to say It was well with them as fathers , hus
bands , citizenc. dod created us for His own
lory. Not for the purpose of practicing
law , or medicine or sm'cubitlng in real estate.
We are tbo temples of wherein ( ! od dwells
by His spirit. Hut wo cannot be God'.s
children while wo aie connpt , while wo are
full ol the devil. ' Every man has an influ
ence. No man lives to himself and no man
dies lo himself. W know not but our inllu-
enco may diag some soul down to tbo
pit. How much dcpnnds then upon
our Iniluenco being for good and the
salvation of souls. Fathers should remem
ber the effect of their bad habits on tlieir
children. Jn view of their great responsibil
ity how careful should fathers be. that ills
well with thorn in the lingiiaic and spirit of
the text. Again , man's duties In view of bis
marriage vows are great. Angels might well
tremble if called on undertake tlio responsi
bilities men assume at the marriage altar.
Cod lias given men thn oppoittmlty to ele
vate their wives to a higher , nobler , holler
life. It is not enonidi that the hands be
calousod with laboring and the brain weary
with studying for the benefit of tlio dear
ones at liomo. Tbo higher motive to lie set
before such faithful husbands la to lead their
companions to ( Sodiind Christ. The speaker
pictured the dying remorse of a man who
had failed to give himself to Christ and lead
his wife and children Into the church.
Wives , too , should ask themselves , "Is it
well with nioV" There is not a wife living
but has the power. If she uould , to brim : her
husband to Christ. The speaker referred to
tlio devotion of ardent swains before mar
riage , and said Iho ladies mizht exercise a
greater power alter marriage than before if
they would only aiako tbo cfl'ort. Ho con
cluded with a graphic description of a num
ber of death-bed scenes where ho had been
present , referred to tlio temptations which
throng the foot steps of the young in this
city and called upon narnnts to take care of
their children and give them to Christ before
it was lee late.

night and Wednesday night.
Hnv.V. . J. IInrahu'8 Kernion nt tlio
Presbyterian Church Imm Kvoninjr.
At the Dodge Street Presbyterian church
last evening the Rev W. J. Hursha
preached to a large congregation from
the text :
Amos , Jl , 1'i ; "As the shepherd takcth out
of tbo month ol the lion two legs or a piece
ol an ear. "
Tlio following Is a synopsis of the discourse :
"Amos was a.shepherd , and In these words
he descrllws a scene very familiar to him , A
little lamb had gone astray anil a lion hud
ponm-ed upon it and curried It oil' to his lair.
The t > bei > ! ienl puraiied and cxinc upon the
lion alter the most of the victim was con
sumed ; hut ho rescued two logs and a piece
of an ear and carried those fragments homo
In triumph. And tlio prophet said that thus
( ! od would rescue the lemnant ot his people
from sin and take even tbo fragments ol !
their lives for his service.
I'rom these words we may learn that Ihero
are two great forces at woilc In the universe ,
a destroying and a rescuing force. In your
lives and in your heart-i two eonllietlirj
powers aio at work what will bo the result'/
The destroying force Is represented in
Katan. Hu rs called the deceiver , the ser

The rescuing force U represented by Christ
and the Christian religion. He goes out after
men and leads them bnck from their wander

Luther says that once when ho was sick
the devil came to him and unrolled a largo
roll on which every sin that tbo reformer had
ever done was written down , Anil Luther
said : ' 'What have you there ? " And the
devil answered , with a fearful smile of inallg-

of tlio reformer trembled for a moment , bat

An Interesting ; Chapter of Unwritten
History by General Itrlsbln.
[ Written for the Omaha Siiwhty Ihc.\ \
General Adam lindcnu in his rciuinis
cuccs of tit-nut , which nro the most inter
esting I over rend concerning n public
man , pjvcs incidentally many incidents
in the lives of other public men contemp
orary with ( it-aut. In most things I have-
no doubt ( icticntl Undunu is correct , but
now mid then ho uiukos n mistake , and
in speaking of old Hun Wade ho goes
wide of the mark. Il was my good fort
une to bo intimately associated with Son-
ntor VVmlo ami I was almost constantly
with him during otic of the most eritlcal
periods in the history of our country
the impeachment of Andrew Johnson.
It Is concerning this time Sir. Hadeau
writes of Mr , Wade , and in what ho says
is wrong so far as slating Mr. Wade
"was too rabid iv man lo be a safe presi
dent. " Mr. Wade was one of Iho safest
statesmen 1 ever know , and his rabidiiess
was all on the outside. I once heard Mr.
Lincoln uiinovcrhls pretended rabidness
in a way Unit was highly amusing. Wadu
was scolding juyivy as usual because the
war did not progress more rapidly , and
the administration wns not more
radical. Hu said he would do
various things if ho had the
power , and al last Sir. Lincoln , some
what annoyed , turned upon hint and
said ; "Sir. Wade , do you know the duFbr-
once between doing a thing and advising"
another to do it ? You arc senator from
Ohio and 1 am president of the United
States , your people are very radical and
you are their representative. It 1 wore n
senator from Illinois and you wore presi
dent , our positions would bo re
versed , and I doubt nol Hint 1 should bo
hero as : i senator urging you to do many
things which you , as president , could not
and would nol do. Come , now. Sir.
Wade , am 1 not right in this ? " "I'll be
d d if you alnt , " said Mr. Wade , "aiirt
if 1 ever urn president , 1 hope 1 will have
the good RCIISO to do pretty much as you
do. " This was the whole thing in a nut
shell. Mr. Wado's people in tlio JJtick-
eye state were always very advanced in
their ideas , and Sir. Wade was their faith
ful representative. Personally he wa.s
very conservative and if ho had ovorbecii
president be would have surprised every
one by the moderation of his administra
It has often been wondered who Sir.
> Vndc would have called about him if
Andrew Johnson had been impeached.
Ho eamo within one vote of being presi
dent , and it is a matter of very great in-
tercs.t to know whom Mr. Wade would
have called into his cabinet and placed
in positions of prominence , had lie been
called upon to exercise the powers of a
Sir. Wade never said distinctly he
would appoint anv man , for when approached
preached on the subject by his most inti
mate friends , ho always replied : " 1 am
noi yet president and have no appoint
ments to make , and likely never will have
as president of the United States. " Still ,
Mr. Wndc had his friends , and wc who
know him bost.hnda very good idea whom
he would appoint In a certain ovunt.
Ono day when 1 was about starling
frow Washington to Kentucky , Sir. Wndo
called me into the vice president's oilico
and said : "If you see Judge Win. U.
( ioodloc , ot Lexington , Ky. , when you
get out there , give him my kindest re
gards , and ask him if he should be needed -
od at Washington in a certain event
whether be would bo willing to come. "
Ho then asked if L thought Judge Good-
lee would como to Washington , should
ho ( Wade ) need him. 1 said , "Sir.
Goodloo. will do anything to oblige mid
servo you. " "Very well , " ho replied ,
"if lightning flionlu .strike mo in this im
peachment business [ will need him , and
you may say so to him privately. " L
consider the expression of Sir. Wade as
an indtetitiou that in case Andrew John-
con should have been impeached and
Wade succeeded him as president , he
would have invited Judire Goodloo to
accept a seat in the cabinet which ho
would have been called upon to form.
Sir. Wade often said , Sir. Stanton in
Iho right man in the war oilico and
.should bo kept Ibere. There is no doubt
that if Sir. Wade had boon made presi
dent at any time during Sir. Stallion's
life ho would have been called on to act
as secretary of war , as long as Sir. Wade
was president.
Wade had a high opinion of Sir. K. B.
Ward , of Detroit , and believed him to
possess great financial abilities. Ho said
one day , "Ward would make a good sec
retary of the treasury and I should like
to sue him try his hand in that olllcc. "
Without going into details as to all my
reasons for thinking so 1 will say in brief
if Sir. Wade had been made president lo
succeed Andrew Johnson , I believe ho
would have appointed about tin ; fojlow-
Ing persons to positions under him in his
cabinet , vi/C :
