"As touching iho election , " ft phrato from
Paul's loiter lo the Chrlsllans In Homo , was
tbo text of Kov. Mr. Mann's dttcourso at
Unity church yesterday mornlug , but any
who attended In thp hope of hearing some
thing of the proaonor's ' opinions on iho elec
tion or his adwlco on bow tn mark a ballot
tomorrow wcro disappointed.
The first part of Mr Mann's napor was deVoted -
Voted to an cxposlllon of election as nn
ecclesiastical dogma. Ho showed how differ
ent the meaning expressed by the word In
the writings of the new tcsUmont authors
from thoblgnillcanco It had in tlio mouths
of modern politicians. CalvlnUllo"olectlo u"
wa Indcod a vary different ibing from the
Speaking of tbo Immediate event In which
nil the people will bo Instruments tomorrow ,
the proachcr said the nnjoritv of man woto
ovorprono lo Icavo to others the moulding of
their political opinions. Tuls bo deplored
nnd ID this tendency of so many men to con-
elder party a ? their ovoilord ho saw a remnant -
nant of Ibo old order of ihingH which a per-
Distent consoivatistu hod been au'.o to bring
down to tno modern world \\horii It Is en-
tlrnlv out of place ; In politics : ti in orthodox
religion an olcclion had In It Icnst of actual
, choice , nlboit the theory Is still expressed
tnat election is not n matter of faith but of
jvi-nt \lliillntprost. .
Still , the present presidential election , in
Mr. Mann's opinion , lias a certain grandeur
in It of which every American should ba
proud. While the event could not bo sup
posed to pass unnoted by Iho pulpit , an
ovontof such vital interest lo all , yet Ibo
proachcr had no llttlo dllllniHy In treallnfr
It. Public oninlon Had barred its conslaoiu-
tiou from the preacher's domain ; Indcod ,
tlrao had been when the minister could not
cast his vote without pivlug offenso. Yet
the voice of tbo pcoplo is the volco of God ,
nnd it is the preacher's business to call at
tention to It. In face of the Inovitabluness
of government by party our country U uioro
forlunato than sonio others in 'that all
parties Hero tank together in love of coun
try ; yet , tbo Ideal condition of politics tn Ibis
co-jiitry will not bo reached till it will t < o im
possible for any psriy to safely calculate on
r.O.OUO majoiltj in any slate , and Iho
peaiter saw feigns. lhat gave him rea
son to hope that Ibi ) number of
pcoplo who slavishly obey the party leaders
Is diminishing. Wu shall never bo delivered
from tbo dominion of the boss in politics till
wo ourselves show that wo cannot bossed.
The business of voting is a serious duty , and
nil tbo moro serious because it hangs so
lightly on so many. Only ho who dullbor-
ales makes a cholcn. H may bo very con
venient to have a ticket nut into ono's hands ,
mid vote it in blind obedience , but that is
not the modern idea of election , but the old
ecclesiastical Idea , and onlv where the ballot
box in turned into a machine to register a
predestined vote do wo see troubleat the
Denotes National Ailtance.
Whatever Iho result of Tuesday's vote ,
tbis canvass must over bo regarded ai one
conducted on .i high plane. I3oth candidates
have berne tbomselve.s with niredignitv , nor
bas the country boon flooded with personal
Attacks of n partisan press , and wo who
thought that presidential elections should bo
furtborapart are not now so certain of our
position as before. Whatever the outcotun ,
it will stand for tbo deliberate judgment ot
ACTS , NOT CKliCIS
What a Mnn Does unit not What He Hollevcs
Is the Meiixure.
The largo audience at All Saints church
last evening listened lo aa interesting sor-
nion by Hoy. T. J. Mackoy on "Kcllgion In
Politics. ' '
The speaker said in Introduction that , very
few people wcro able to understand the con
nection between religion and politics. But
religion bad aomothing to do with political
matters or snoulU havo. Tbo mistaken idea >
of many pcoplo aioso from the fact
that tboy know but llttlo of what
religion really consisted. Religion >
was nonsectarlan. A
man might bo a very
Kood Episcopalian or Presbyterian nud still
not have a narticlo of religion in his soul.
He niicht uo learned In all iho axioms I.jf
theology a d yet not have bonosty in Ills
This country was self-governing. It was
n government by the people and for the
pcofilo and consisted in u mutual compact between -
tweon every ciii70n that each should * do his
! > art In protecting the interests of nil.
People were too apt to bind the sphere of
their tellgion within denominational limits.
The speaker referred to tbo picluro of Lin
coln ana his cabinet as they sat considering
the proclamation of emancipation , and then
to an ecclesiastical tribunal solemnly endeav
oring to sift a charge of heresy against , Vn
brother clergyman. The one was a secular
tribunal , tbo other a religious convocation ,
but ihero was moro religion In iho delibera
tions of the cabinet planning for the liboru
tlon of millions of human bolngs than in all
t'jo ecclesiastical linkers lu the world
manipulating their petty creed ? . Idn
What was was wanted wns more religion )
In politics , not loss ; an inlluenco that would
sot ofllclals lo considering Iho good of iho
people Instead of beginning to bet up pins for
the inxt election us soon us they weio In > orf
llco. There worn lee many politicians now
und too few legislators and slnlosiuun. Poll-
ticb had degcnoralcd from statesmanship lito
more politics. Some people sconn'd lo Ihlnlc
that ministers should take no part in
politics. They said that they wore preju
diced anil f0.11 iid that the would mnlut their
. congregation prejudiced nlso. The church
had no rlirht to s.ilr up parly airlfe , but BUIt
VIM emphatically Its province lo lend its in-
llucnco lo anything which tor.dod to inko
moil bolter nnd Iho government purer.
The nouspapers wcito too tightly bound
by party lines to tuico up the cause of ino
pcoplo and expose Iho xvcaknossos nnd faults
of ofllclal govoininunt. There was no such
thing as an Independent press. H remained
for tba pulpit to lift its voice against the
robbery of the people by their ofllulals nnd
exciclso a purifying Inlluenco on ibo politico
nf the time. When this uns accomplished lit
\\oulu light the wxy to a bailer and purer
government , in which there would bo more
attention paid lo iho interests of the pcoplo
nnd less to politics.

Yesterday morning at the United Prasby-
terian church Kov. John Williamson , the
pator , pronchcd a eermonon politics ana tbo
election , HU nurposo was to show elections
to ba calculated as a means of honoring tbo
Lord , a conscientious ballot being understood
as being cast in HU nanio , while the other
voted for the mere party's sake nnd wus pic
tured as reprehensible aua unholy. After
a short introduction to his sermon the rev-
enicd gcniloinan said :
t- It needs no apology for a minister of the
pospet lo call iho attention of Christian peo-
1 nlo to ( lielr responsibility tu Uod and to the
direction Gml has given mom on the eve of

The spoHker then wont ou to say that be

The spoaUor then referred lo Senator In-
calls of Kansas DV mentioning u statement
made in the 1,011 a to In which he said that the
decnloeuo and Iho ( 'olden rule nad no place
in politics , liov. Mr. Muir.iv said mat lie
was glad lhat tlio people of thn slate of Kan
sas had plainly said by their ballots that a
man who would in alto Mien a remark was not
lit for the place , consequently- had been
retired to priva'o llfo.
"It Is tune , " sald Iho prejcber , "for every
American clti/on lo hide his face In shame ,
for as wn look over iho polltiuiil aitualitm
now \\o llnd nolninir but chicanery and coi-
ruolion , ando should fool ashamed ut Ibis
slalo of affairs Uollglotis nnd moral men
have wlihdir.wu Iholr support from the
political parties on ncoount of corruption ,
because , as they sav , lhe > do not want to
soil their bunds by mlnpling with the people
who now run and conlrol llio polillral ma
chines. Hut I s.iv it Is a shumo , lot uhen a
man sees corruption , bribery ni.a other evils ,
etc. , ramp mi , ho should not refuse bis ulu
and InllU'Jiu-o to rijiht the WIOIIK and do all
ho can toward the publication of politics.
"Tnore is iieeu of religion in politics on ac
count of thli cortuption , und 1 lieliovoth.it
If wn had more religion uo would liavo less
corruption. Aeain , religion should bo taken
Into politics in order lo diculty Iho national
government and the dally llfo of the peoplo. "
Once moro the piencher quoted hin text
and then said , "As the eye of God is IOOKIUR
down upon us It is our duty to carrv our re
ligious beliefs with us to the polls and to
vote for the best interosls of humanity , in
order tnat the will of Ooa may bo done" and
that wo may vote according to the direction
of God Almighty. Furthermore , I consider
it the dutv of every Chrlslian lo lake an
active part In Ibo political battles of tbo day
in oraer to help purify and dignify the polit
ical world. I met not long since u praacbcr
who boasted that ho had not voted in twenty
years. Wlien asltod his reasons ho snul that
the name of Goa did not appear in tlio con-
slitiitiou of tbo United Stales und consequently
quently ho could not countenance such a
government. Hie preacner and laymou and
Christians should work together and force
puritv , aignitv ami morality into tbo polit
ical platforms A Christian must necessarily
take a moral view of tlio situation irrespec
tive nt party or questions involved. "
Kov. Air. Muriay urged his bo.irors to be
patriols and not partisans , nnd to co to the
polls mill vole as pall lots iho ticket , uhlcU
represented their convictions. Ho further
advocated tbo election of Ood-fcinitif men to

Although J. C. Weaver is n dimlnutlvo
Dguro in the presidential race and stands as
near elcclion as if bovoro not running AS the
people's party candtduto , his canvass has
served to accomplisn something which no )
power on cnrlh bos over brought about in
the past , and that was tno galling into ono I
room of three factions in the democratic
party all at the same time and tvlth iho simo
purnoso in view , and no light followed. For
bo it known that there are tbrco Motions
within Iho party Ir. South Omaha , and tbo
motto of oacli is , "Never die. " There nro the
Jefferson Un club aud Iho utiti-.lcfTTiorilaiis ,
who are after Councilman Ouila's political
scalo. And then I horn aru the old standbvs
who uro under the leadership of John Mc-
Yesterday afternffon" about thirty of the
faithful assembled at''Knights of Pythias
hall , nnd cacti faction . well represented. 3D
There was uo bloodshed1 , and , In fact , no
wordy battles woifo foucht. They were
thoio wilh ouo commoc object iu view , nnd
at ibo inspiration of anolnor common ob
ject. The solo puriipsd of tbu mooling waste
to tnle stops to doih'dr up lo the Weaver
electors , the domoerafic vote in South
Omaha. Tbc.se ladders of the local
deinocraoy mav tblnlc I hey will uccornullsh
their putposo , but the democrats who cast
tno votes will hardly c'ellvtr themselves up
to the scheme , tnfis batched. Enih
democrat who atfiftded th" riiootiug
wont tbero feeling i'ery'selfnruDortant ' , and
\vas certain ba bad in storen , surprise for Iho
others. When the"1 'fnivilng bad born called
to order and the chairman bad Inquired
"What is your pleasure , gentlemen , " thirty
democratic voice's iu cborus uhirpcO : "Mr.
Chairman , I have hero " Tho"chairman
was frightened at the nneniniity of the
answer to bis interrogation , and feared that
there nilfibt be a clash , owinf ? to thirty dam-
ocrats wanlirg to Do board at once. Parlia
mentary rules in democratic uicot-
IIIRS parmit of not to ex
ceed twenty-two talnl-iR at ono time
nnd the chairman bravely statcu so. and
recognized ono of the faithful. Tlio "I have
hero" proved to bo a conlldentlal letter
tvpeivritlon on a printing press also much
per thousand from Chairman Itush of iha
aeinocrmic county central committee. The
lol'cr in brief staled that there is no hope of
talcing JNoorasku from the topublican column
unless democrats vote for tbc people's paily
electors and that all democrats are uiged to
FO cast their ballots , and that , the national
committee recommends this. 'Iho loiter
winds up with an underscored warning that
"a vole for Weaver is u vote for Cleveland. "
When tills letter hud bcon roitd a discus
slon arose as lo Ibo host moans lo carry out
the instruclions. Knclosod wilh tbo lutler
was a sainplj ballot wit'a n croasopposilu the
names of the people's party electors. The
ether crossds ou the tlcltol were placed on-
posilo thn nnmos of the democratic candi I- iI
dates , fiom go\ernor to coiulablo. It was
agreed Ihut oaeh aemocrallo voter shall ba
furnished ono of those sample bullets ,
and Uncle I'cter Cocltroll slartod out with an
armful of the green slips for the edlllcation
of tbo voters.
