But the groat work of (ho Seuato dur
ing the past week, was tins confirms'
tion of Mr. Lamar, despite the treach
erous opposition of the Republicans to
that brilliant and distinguished stat' s

.the long contest unscathed, and he
wears uis new and crowning honor
with beoomine modesty and character

torn, the new Asaociito Justice wa
aisicncd a seat on the extreme left of
his fellow instices.
The Senate had under consideration
the Blair bill, but as uual rescind no
conclusion. Messrs. Blair and React""
had rather a heated dUcuxsion over the
third Question, in which the former
was decidedly worsted. Ex-Justice ol
the Supreme Court, Strong, expresses
the opinion that tno but is uncimHtiln
tional. Senator II'ar has introduced a
ervice pension bill, which is the most
radical measure of the kind yet pre
sented, providing as it dors that all
officers aud enlisted men who served in
the army, navy, or marine corps, in
eluding regulars and volunteers nt au
time daring the late civil war, ehnll he
entitled to a pension ot one cent li.r
each dav's service, in addition to an
pension granted for disability. This.
In face of the fact that S75,000,00
will be spent on pensions tin year, and
the further tact, that the Homo (Jom

the same purpose next year. Comment
Both the Senate and the House have

thirty-five Democrats were absent ir

wheels of the House. But Mr. Crisp,
chairman of tho Committee on Eleo

to permit the transaction of other
business until this contest is settled.
The tariff reformers have won the
first preliminary skirmish in the Ways

of Ohio, who shares w'uh Reed, of

In the courso of bis remarks tho ex
justice was asked by a student if, in
his opinion, the Blair educational bill
was constitutional, m reply was:

A SENATOR S WIFE WHO MAKES HUB
LORD SLIGHTLY RIDICULOUS.
Washington. January 21. A good
d-al of aiuu-emont is furnished this
winter by the wife of a certain Senator,
who always calls her husband "Dar
ling." He isn't such a one as the term
would ordinarily applied to, being big
and burly and not very nico about his
person, but she seem to think it is a
pretty pet name, and uses the term ol
endearment on all occasions. Whether
she is addressing him in private or
public, or whether she speaks of him
to others, she always says ''Darling,"
and dues it so Irequently that when
"D-irliug" is referred to now every
body knows who is meant.
"Darling has such a bad cold,' she
said to another Senator's wife the other
day, "that I am going to put him to
bed when he comes home."
"Darling went to the Capitol early
this morning,'' Bhe remarked to another,
"to attend one of those horrid commit
lee meetings. What dreadful things
they 'are I I positively hate them.
Why, Darling soys that if it wasn't for
his commute, wo k he could spend lots
oi uuie whu me.
The other Senators have "caught
on,' so to speaic, and now seldom at
ludti to their colleague by any other
term in his absence onlv. of course,
Onn Senator oame very near making a
blunder the other day by using it at
the wrong time, ae entered the com
mittee room a little late.aud as he took
off his coat and gloves looked around
me tame, ai wmcn halt a dozen or
more Senators were sealed, and asked :
"Where s UarlingT"
lhero were some frantio gestures
toward a booxcase at the other end ot
the room and the lato comer blushed
deeply and looked alurmed. "Darling"
was behind a map-rack, where he
could not be seen, and if he overheard
the remark he showed no sign.

V, 13. Wt are now entering tho second
division of the record of the publio ministry
of Jesus. As the first commenced with the
attestation of tho father to his soiuhlp, Matt.
Ill, 17, so this commence! with a similar
attestation on tho part of one of his apostles.
Up to this time no such declaration appears
on the part of the people or of his disciples.
And It came la answer to his own question.
Jesus asked his disciples what tho people sold
about blmf Whom did they take him to bef
V. 14. And tho answer was varied tn Its
tone. Some, probably the Ilerodlans, said
John the Baptist. They held that he was
risen from the dead, and so accounted for the
mighty works which Jesus wrought. Others
said ho was Ellas, or Elijah, while yet others
sold ho was Jeremiah, or one of the other
prophets. All gave him a high position;
while, probably, the popular Judgment was
much lowered by the opposition of the Scribes
and Pliarisccs to belief In his Messlahshlp.
V. 15. But Jesus would not rest here. At
once he made a personal matter, "Who say
ye that I amp thus pointing the great truth
that In every such question the individual
application is always the paramount concern.
In that lino it is of small consequence to us
what others may think or say, but it is of in
finite moment to ourselves that we each one
think and speak the real truth about Christ.
V. 10. And Peter, moved with a sudden in
spiration, at once replies: "Thou art the
Christ, tho Son of the living God." It was a
glorious confession; radiant with the bright
est beam of the truth and Instinct with Its
mightiest power. Through the ages It has
floated, banner like, at the head of the army
of tho church, and underneath its folds the
battle has always waged with the most un
yielding severity. We note two points tn
this confession, 1. e.,
1, Its positiveness. There was no halting
In the march of Peter's thought; no uncer
tainty in its tone; no reservation in its state
ment. It was clear, bold and ringing. There
was no paltering with It In a double sense.
"Thou art the Christ." It was simple and
V. 17. How clear, how distinctly lined it
was. It was not taught him by flesh and
blood. Man had not taught it to him;
neither had he wrought it out by a process of
his own mind. It was given him from above.
"My father which Is in heaven" hath showed
it unto thee,
1. The title Jesus gives the church. It Is
"My Church." It is so in every regard. The
idea ot It is mine. It was with me before
the world began. In tho silence of eternity
It was with me. I saw it, and know it, and
loved it from everlasting. The purchase ot
it was mine, I gavo myself for It. I bought it
with my blood. "I will build up my church."
Every living stone laid upon the truo founda
tion is my work. And tho keeping of it Is
mine. Unseen my band shall be upon it, and
"I will keep it night and day." It h all
& The foundation of it. "This rock."
"Other foundation can no man lay than that
is laid, which Is Christ Jesus," 1 Cor. ill, 11.
"Therefore thus salth the Lord God, behold,
I lay in Zlon (or a foundation, a stone, a tried
stone, a precious corner stone, a sure founda
tion," Is. zzvlil, la, aud 1 Per, 11, 4-7.
a Tho builder of it "I will build," etc.
He is both the foundation ot his church and
the builder of It On hlmsjlf, as tho sure
foundation, he lays each believer. There he
abides. Thenco he receives the new lifo by,
which as a living stone he grows up into a
holy temple in the Lord. With his own hand,
by his own spirit, ho imparts to each his own
llfei, and of all he says, "Because I live, ya
shall live also."
4. The safety of it "The gates ot hell
shall not prevail against it." How can theyl
If the church is his, if he is the foundation of
it and the builder of it, if he keep it, how can
it be otherwise than safe! Hell is hades, or
the place of departed spirits especially here,
of evil spirits. Gates were the place in
ancient cities where counsel was taken and
publio measures determined on. "Tbe gates
of hell," therefore, mean all that the powers
of evil can devise and execute against my
church. In tho midst of it all the church Is
V. 20. Jesus would not have his enemies
roused Into undue activity against him be
fore the time; but would have every ques
tion concerning himself to be worked out by
them under the quiet influence of his own
life. They must Judge from that in the light
of their own Scriptures.
V. 21-23. In these versos we have:
Our Lord's prediction of his death;
Peter's protest against it; and
Our Lord's rebuke of Peter.
V. 24. Here follows the universal law of
the Kingdom. Peter did not want to admit
the thoughts of God about the Cross. Ha
hod much pleasanter thoughts and schemes
of his own. And so ho must deny himself.
And so must everyone who would be the
V. 25-28. Wo must remember that, as our.
Lord spoke them,, "life" and "soul" are onej
and tho some word. That "life" Is used in
two senses a higher and a lower; a bodily
and a spiritual sense and that our true life
or soul may be lost And what will every
thing else profit us if that is done I What
shall we give In exchange for it! For that
will turvive when tbe Master comes again.
And what will compensate for a lost soul I
1. The need of right views about Christ
Everything turns on this. As John Newton
"What think ye of Christ!" Is the test,
To try both our state aod our scheme;
We cannot be right in the rekt.
Unless we think rightly of him,
2. Tbe ineffable mystery of the Gospel is
just the inevitable necessity of the Gospel.
For, unless Jesus were man, he could not get
Into the place of the Saviour. And if he were
not at the same time God, he could not save
us if he were there.
S. Tho soul is the equivalent ot a man's
self. Luke, therefore, points tbe equivalent
thus "gain the whole world and loso him
self or bo cast away." Luko ix, 25. Fur the
