conorcgation tonight can ace the
transit demonstration and then go
to the tabernacle. Mr. Sunday says
he never starts to preach until 8
Because of the crowds who wait
for many hours, Mr. Sunday said,
he could not delay theftlme for be
ginning the service.
Tha Ilapld Transit Company has
"There are some of you right here to
day who havo the devil In you!" howled
"Billy" Sunday, as ho Jumped to the
edgo of the platform In tho tabemaclo and
pointed his finger first at some clorgymen
and then at tho audience Ho was once
moro attacking hypocrisy In the church,
and demanding that all who profess them
solves as followers of Jesus Christ should
"trot square every day of their lives."
Tlmo and time again be whirled about
during his discourse and fired his blazing
brands of denunciation Into their mldat.
Preachers who plRy to popular fancy by
gtvlnc sermons on "the hobblo skirt,"
"the merry widow hat," and other sub
jects Intended to bring the people to the
church because of the curiosity they
arouse were severely criticised. Bunday
said that the people aro always anxious
to hear real sermons on Jesus tho Christ,
and there would never bo only a handful
of people at the church services If the
ministers would preach about Him and
the truths of the Bible.
Ethical cuIturlstB and "highbrows" ho
held up to scorn, comparing them with
the Pharisees, "tho hypocritical, churchy
knockers of the days when Jcaus was
on earth."
The subject of this afternoon's sermon
was "Why Could We Not Cast Out the
Devil?" and he took for his text the
words, "Why could we not cast him
out?" found In the 28th verse of the Oth
chapter of the Gospel according to St.
Mark. It was a stirring appeal for men
and women to be devout followers of the
Master every day of the week. It waa
a severo lashing for those who profess
hrlst and pretend to follow Ills teachings,
Christ and' pretend to follow His teach
ings, but betray them in the simplest
actions of their lives.
At the same time the evangelist took
more shots at the boozo business and
urged tho men who have left It alone or
taken it moderately to keep their hands
off of it And, supplementing his declara
tion of yesterday that no man couia stop
drinking and "lapping up the damnable
stun; by his own will power," he said the
only hope for the drunkard was In having
Christ with htm as his constant com
panion. "A man might bear the scars causea ny
the devil being In him In the shape ot
Whisky," he said, "but it would be death
to the demon If the man keep tho Lord
In his heart,"
