Sermon of Archbishop. ' . 1
Archbishop O'Connell In hl sermon
' said, In part:
When, ages ago, this fair portion
of the earth - rose above the subsiding
waters, the eternal Ood from the glory of
tha heavens smiled upon it. For. He knew
' even then that On this day and in this place
the great ones of tha world would gather
here around the altar of His love to offer
Him, hidden beneath the Kucharlstlc veil,
' all the homage of their hearts. Age be
fore the sons of men built their habitations
on tha banks of this mighty river tha all-
seeing eye of God beheld reflected from
'. this majestlo stream the gleam of Jehovah's
banners and today's long train of triumphal
procession bearing amid hymns and anthems
the great sacrament of His presence. Cen
turies and centuries before the city of Mary
bad ereoted Its . glorious cathedrals the
peons of praise which we raise here under
the blue dome of God's great temple of
' nature had sounded their echoes aloft to
. tha very throne of Ood; so that before the
: inhabltanta of , thW beautiful city had
framed the laws by which it is governed,
or planned the spacious streets through
- which we now have passed,. God's favor
had reated upon this place and Hi bless
ings had descended over it.
. When, on the and night before Christ's
passion In the dim supper-ciiamber of the
' Pasch, the Son of God Instituted the
blessed sacrament of Hla love. He kne
full well that we here present today should
bear In our loving arms In triumphal pro
cession the mystery which then waa con
' cealed amid retirement and poverty. And
tli us today we take our place In thla ma
jestic scene with the consciousness that we
are fulfilling the plana of God and realizing
tin. eternal designs of Jesua Christ present
to His mind uu the eve ot Hla great passion.
Truly, It heaven and earth are filled wltn
, God's glory, tin Ice sacred la the spot sancti
fied by Ills sacramental presence. And
privileged Indeed Is this people to whom
the King ot kings Himself haa come today
t aa a friendly visitor.
Moaat a. Second Tabor.
During these historic days, when the Son
of God is a nation's guest, heaven itself
surah la very near to this people. And
this fair city which haa become a sacred
khiine of God's presence Is teeming with
Uis graces and benedictions. Look around
you and consider well the full beauty and
tho. fuller significance of thla wonderful
scene. Nature and grace, earth and
heaven, are blending here all their varied
splendors. For the moment tills royal
mount la become a second Tabor and tne
very heavens havo opened above this hal
lux ed place, where the angel of God de
scend In client adoration around the throne
of the Holy Kuchurlst.
What tongue cf man can voice the senti
ment of laith which at this moment fills to
uvtrtloHiiig each Catholic soul l.ere pres
ent, revealing the presence of the Son ot
God under the veil of 'the Eucharlht? As
truly as on that first Christmas night the
under child of Mary lay within her loving

AUGUSTA. Me.. Sept. 10.-(Speclal Tele
gram.) Not fur a generation has eo fierce
a political battle been fought In Maine
as that which practically came to a finish
tonight. And it has been a great many
year slnoe thera has been ko great a
doubt os to what the result will be until
the votes are counted Monday night.
The republicans claim they will elect Gov
ernor Fornald by a cafe, though perhaps
reduced majority, and will return an un
broken . republican delegation to congess.
The democrats are claiming the elec
tion of Col. Fred W. Plaldat as governor
and say they will capture tha First and
Second congressional districts.
The wise outsider 'refrains from making
a prophecy, but Is Inclined to regard the
democratic claims to be most likely to be
borne out when the returns are In.
For thirty jeara Maine has been ao stead
fastly republican that politicians ceased to
be uneasy about Its vote, one way or the
other. But In the last few years great
changes have taken place In Maine'a voting
laanrsrency ot Mrong.
Insurgency Is not as intense or, powerful
in Maine as In other states, but the causes
which have produced It elsewhere are act
ively telt here. Together with dissensions
and counter currents in the republican fold, I
it. has been strong enough to force the re-
tlrement of so long potent
a political fac-
tor as Senator Hale,
With these forces and others at work, the
election on Monday will undoubtedly have
national Importance that? Maine'a elec
tions have lacked for nearly a generation.
This election's result will fce.the forerun
ner of what may be expected at the No
vember elections In other Males.
In 1894, the Year when the great reaction
against President Cleveland's administra
tion . begun,' the republican plurality -was
30,117 lu a total vote of 99.717. Two year
later the republican-' reached liielr high
water vote with a plurality of 48,24 In a
total vote of 116,94t. Then began a gradual
recession. - In 18U6 a remarkable falling off
set lit when the republican plurality for
governor was only 8.061 In a total vote of
130,790. . . . . . - ...
Two years ago. In 190S, it. fell still lower
and In proportion to the whole vote the
loss was still greater.. In a total vote of
139,819 the republican plurality for governor
waa only 7,264. .
Llqaor Qaeatlon Not an lasae.
The issues which are having this effect
are . mixed. They are partly state Issues
and partly national. In Maine probably
more than anywhere elae, atate Issues, even
in a campaign In which representatives to
congress are elected, .assume an inordinate
Importance. This Is because Maine has
long been a prohibition state and yet the
prohibition question is as burning an Issue
as ever. The democratic organization la
making It a principal Issue and It la likely
that it will have a very considerable effect
on the elections, but for a curious reason
which does not appear on the surface.
Five years ago the republicans devised
a plan of enforcing the law over the heads
ot local officials. An act waa passed creat
ing a atate enforcement commission, with
power to send ita deputies Into any part of
the atate. This law, the republicans argued,
would put a atop to liquor selling. But not
only haa It not done thla,' but It haa served
to irritate a large number of surreptitious
liquor sellers who heretofore have been
ward workera for the republicans.
How large a factor the illicit liquor
era form may be Judged from the fact
aenera form may be Judged from the fact
that there are several thousand arreata In
Maine yearly for selling liquor, and that
these arreata are only a fraction of the
total amount of liquor selling going on.
Theaet Illicit dealers are all more or less
miexd In the . subterranean . channels of
politics and exetr a atrogn Influence.
This enforcement act forma one of the
chief Issues of the democrats. They as
sert that prohibition la nil in Maine; that
dives have multiplied; that arreata have
Increased; that social drinking clubs have
sprung up; that liquor expresses have
multiplied; that the right of city, town
and county to Ita own police force regu
lation has been taken away, and thatonly
one county has so far consented to pay
the expesnes of the enforcement commis
slon, all of the otner counties refusing.

- ng anxious inquiries elicited the In'orn.a
lion that the dean had passed a verv com
fortable night, with no stomach trouble to

to shout:

me. and It'a burned clear through!"
in the roar of laughter that greeted this
Information, "mother" aubslded In the cor

with an expression that Indicated he had
"good one" to hold over her head for
