CALLS SUNDAY MAN
"BLESSED OF GOD"
Hopes "Capital of the South
land" Will Havo the "Privi
lege of Hearing Sound of
Evangelist's Voice" Praise3
By the Hev. Dr. IV. Atbury Chrtttlan,
head of the Richmond (Va.) delegation
which attended terviccs In the tacbmacle
and Invited "BWv" Sunday to hold a
revival Campaign In the Virginia capital
To a Virginian It Is a great pleasure to
visit Philadelphia. There Is something In
tho atmosphere of the old city which Is
delightful to him. The universal cour
tesy of her citizens, their kindness and
consideration, together with their desire
to havo strangers feel at homo and know
their great city, mako It especially at
tractive to Southerners. To tho Rlch
mond delegation thoro was one thing
more Interesting than the city. It was
tho great religious meeting In progress.
It Is doubtful If such a meeting can he
held In any other city.
In Its compass, operation, spirit and
results, It lifts not been surpassed, If
equaled, by any similar meeting In tho
history of tho Churoh. One man preach
ing to millions of pcoplo eager to hear
tho Gospel, and more than 27,000 profes
sions of faith In Christ, 1b surely a now
page In tho history of tho Churoh, When
beftiro did one corporation bring 15,000
men to hear preaching, as did the Penn
sylvania Railroad on Wednesday night,
February 17? A splendid body of men It
was, too. It Is no wonder that tho
"Pennsy" should tako tho position of
ono of tho leading railroads of tho world
with bucIi men as appeared there, from
tho president down, to manage Its affairs.
The centre of tho great meeting Is tho
great preacher, for, let the critics say
what they aro minded to, "Billy" Sun
day is a great preacher, Ho has splen
didly organized his work so as to get the
very best results, and that in Itself Is a
valuablo lesson to tho Church; she needs
'to learn that thero must be business In
religion ns truly as thero must bo re
ligion In business. Either one Is badly
hindered without tho other.
What of the preacher himself? Well,
tho message ho brings Is tho same that
tho World always has and always will be
eager to hear tho Blblo message of sal
vation. How often Is It the caso that
the beauty and simplicity of the Gospel
havo been obscured or covered up under
the cloak of literature or science, or have
been lost In tho mists of philosophy or
4 tho marcs of metaphysics, until tho rcst
iless and weary pcoplo havo cried aloud:
"Is there rest for i sin-tossed soul, and
Whore may that rest bo found?"
"Billy" Sunday preachcB tho simple ,and
powerful Gospol of Jesus. Ho does not
preach It like any one else. How could
he, and bo what God has designed him
to bo? It has pleased the Lord to speak
through personalities, and they aro as
varied as personal appearances. To criti
cise "Billy" Sunday for his "Sundaylsms"
Is to criticise him for being born W. A.
Sunday Instead of Tom Jones. His pecu
liar expressions and characteristic gestures
give an interesting and delightful In
dividuality to his sermons.
Thero Is an evident sincerity and can
dor in the man that soon becomes nd
mlrablo to tho hearers, and finds an echo
In every heart. Personality, llko sound,
echoes back Its own quality and tone. To
my mind "Billy" Sunday is to tho Ameri
can pulpit today what Thomas Carlylo Is
to English literature, with this differ
ence, that Sunday speaks from tho sun
shine of his soul rather than from the
dark of a dyspeptic body. In his char
acteristic and powerful declaration of
truth and In his contempt and ridicule
of shams Sunday forcibly reminds one
of the sage of Chelsea.
Tho earnestness and enthusiasm of the
man at once command attention Ho
not only has a message, but with all hla
soul ho believes his message nnd Is eager
to make others believe It. He Is no actor
Using his art to mako fiction appear real.
,1s a soul on lire, with a great truth
eh ho cannot but tell forth with all
3 power. It Is over true that "he that
aka what is really In him will find men
Vllaten, though under never such im-
"Billy" Sunday impresses you as a man
of prayer and of great faith, and while
he modernizes biblical scenes and expres
sions, h5 Is never Irreverent nor flippant.
The power with which he grips his great
audiences and holds their attention to tho
end Is one of the remarkable gifts of this
remarkable-man. He has a valuable help
er in his gifted wife, Mrs. Sunday.
Philadelphia .will not forget the great
meeting, and generations to come will rise
up and call this courageous man of God
Richmond greets Philadelphia and hopes
ere lang.ta have the privilege of hearing
the sound of i"BIIly" Sunday's voice In
the capital of 'the Southland.

"Why? For tho slmplo reason that thoy

analyzing, comparing period with porlod,
nnd tho contemporaneous history of tho

to understand tho dlvlno problem ns It
unfolds Itself from tho divine mind, you)
have to study, for God puts no premium
"In John 111, 10, It says, 'For God so
loved the world that He gavo His only
begotten Son, that whosoever belleveth In
Him should not perish, but havo everlast

any pretense of understanding or trying
to follow tho Word of God. Some people
glvu as their reason for not believing the
Bible tho fact that they cannot under
stand it. If you only believe what you
can understand, you will bo dumfounded

don't believe that this world came about
by chemical force or tho 'fortuitous con
currence of atoms. That Is asinine,
idiotic nonsense. I would never let any
public school teacher cram that down my

say 'So-and-so told us,' I say, 'You tell
that teacher sho lies.' God mado that
thing Just as It Is. I don't allow them to

ago or moro they were printing and cir
culating infidel literature to the extent of
800,000 pounds sterling a year. What was
the result? God was denied, tho Bible
sneered at and ridiculed, and between 1782
and 1796. 1,025,100 persons were brought to
death. The word of God stood unshaken
amidst It all. Josh Billings said; 'I would
rather be an idiot than an infidel, be

only for the things which the world can
give him?" If man has ever been nblo
to glvo an nnswer out of his own wis
dom and experience, that man was Solo
mon. He was one who was born with a
silver spoon In his mouth. Solomon
was a son of ono of the greatest mon
of tho Bible of David, who was a man
after God's own heart which means that
ho was a man who Just suited God.
"Solomon was mado king of tho great
est kingdom In the world when ho was
still a young man, but ho had his father
to help him and advise him He had
knowledge and wisdom such as no ruler
ever had before or has over had since.
Ho had nn invincible army that he had
only to command and It would obey. Ho
had only to expiess a wish and It was
gratlricd. He had wealth such as man
had never known before

"Now listen: There was a fellow who
had It all. Just listen, nnd you'll hear
what ho had to say beforo ho got through.
Solomon was a close observer, just ns his
father, David, was. Ho said: 'I havo
seen all things under tho sun.'
"At somo tlmo In our lives wo havo en
vied men of great fortuno or of high
scholarship, nnd we have thought that If
we only could havo or know as much as
they do, wo would havo a foretasto of
heaven. Solomon had the greatest for
tune In the world, nnd ho was tho wisest
"After he had found out Just what wealth
can do, he said, 'Let's seo what pleas
ure can do,' and tho way ho went to It
would make a baseball fan nt the world's
series look like a clothing dummy. '
He hit Hip the booze. He tried a lot
of things. Ho had a great nntatorlum
built, and It was supported by great
lions. And ho loved many strango
women. That's whero ho struck out. He
had 700 wives and 300 concubines.
"He constructed the groat building,
known as Solomon's Temple. It took 10
years to build It. It took 10,000 men 11
years Just to cut the trees that wero
needed, and It took 80,000 hewers of wood
and 70,000 men Just to prepare the boards,
and there were 80,000 squared stones In
the building. Then, after It was all com
Dletcd. he declared a festival of seven
days In celebration of the finishing of tho
work, nnd 120,000 sheep and a lot of oxen

''Then, after Solomon had constructed
this great building, he turned his talents
to the making of Jerusalem Into a beau
tiful city. Ho planted trees from every
clime, and flowers of every kind and
hue were there. These were kept green
nil the year around by streams brought
from reservoirs In the mountains. But
these pleased Solomon's fancy for, only
a little while, and soon he was weary of
them. I can see him ts he walks In tho
beautiful gardens among he trees, look

why, In one year 20 millions In gold
came to him from the mines of Ophlr
and came aa a gift. He had gratified
his every whim. He had tasted of every
pleasure of which he could think or that
others could suggest to him. He had de
nied himself nothing. He had probably
been an art collector, and had gotten
together from every land the finest paint
ings and the choicest sculptures that he
could find. He had the finest china that
men could make and money could buy.

In contrast to what ho said about the
vanity of things. Aro we to think that
Solomon got his wires crossed? No.
Solomon did not contradict himself.
When he snld: 'What profit hath a man

tnketh under the sun?' That explains
It to me. It makes It atl clear. I can
seo what Solomon was thinking about
when ho said that. He said! 'Under tho

"THE POOR MAN'S CRY'
OR SAVED FR05I TROUBLE"
"This poor man crjed, and the Lord
heard him, and saved him out of all his
troubles." Psalms 34 i 6.
"This text was put in the Bible to help
every man who is having jt hard time
in this world, for it means that what
the Lord did for this poor man in trouble
He will do for every other poor man in
trouble, if be will only do as the poor man
did. Them has never been a case known
where a man in trouble" did as- t bis man
did without setting out of bis trouble.
"What a familiar sound this word
trouble has to ail of us. How well we
know Its meaning It Is one of the
words we never have to go to the dic
tionary to and out about It met us sear
the cradle And has kpt close to us ever
"There are All kinds of troubles, too,
In this world of trouble. There Are
troubles that we bring upon ourselves,
and troubles that others bring Uron "lie.
"The man In tho text Is called a poor
man, and whnt Is said of him Is nlways
true of tho mnn in trouble. Whoever Is
In troublo I sa poor man, even though
he llvo In a palace.
"Jalrus was a wealthy ruler, nnd yet
how poor and helpless he was when the
word camo to him that his llttlo daughter
was dead. How gladly he would have
given nil his wealth to have had her
Tho poor man In tho text had probably
been trying to get free from hla troubles
In his own way forn long while before he
cried to the Lord, Just as all of us have
'Ho that would hide his sin shall havo
trouble enough,' tho Blblo says, 'but he
that will profess and forsake It Is certain
" 'This poor man cried nnd tho Lord
henrd html' One of tho things God can
not do Is to turn a deaf ear to a cry
The man wanted God's help Just then
moio than he wnntcd riches or fame or
honor. His soul cried for Immediate
definite help, and he got It. Standing up
for prayers amounts to llttlo unless tho
heart gets on Its knees.
There Is only ono way to get out of
tho mlro of sin, and that Is to bo lifted
out of It by tho hands that wero nailed
to the Cross.
"Thero Is only ono sure way to be
raved out of all trouble, and that Is to
do as tho man In the text did. It was
tho best thing ho could do and It is tho
bost thing anybody In trouble can do.
"Tho text Is good news for all of us, for
It tells thero Is a suro way to get out
of trouble, nnd there Is not one of ub
who docs not need tho help that Is of
fered. If the Lord helped one poor man
out of all his troubles Ho will help every
other poor man out of his troubles.

SUNDAY RELENTS AND
PREACHES TO GIRLS
Continued from I'ngo One
to West Chester, whcio thev were enter
tnlnd at luncheon by Dr. Phillips, who
proposed a visit to the battlefield of
Mrnndywlnc. The suggestion was ac
cepted with alacrity, "Billy" remarking
that his great grandfather on his mother's
side of tho family was killed on thnt
field. It was at tho completion of this
trip that "Billy" agreed to address the
girls of tho Normal School.
Although "Billy" has been suffering
from a cold In his throat and his voice
was very husky when ho finished his
third sermon last night, he felt much lm
pioved this morning, and believed that hla
voice would be In good condition when ho
opened tho ninth week of his campaign
Tonight a big banquet Is to be held In
tho auditorium of tho Central Branch of
the Y. M. C. A., which will bo attended
by about 400 main floor tabernacle ushers,
100 from tho rostrum, EO doorkeepers and
25 secretaries. Mr. Sunday and other

APPEALS FOR LOCAL OPTION
Backing Governor Brumbaugh's stn,nd
for local option, Sunday called upon tho
Christian pcoplo of Philadelphia, yes
terday, to stand by the Governor. Sunday
preached three different sermons yester
day. Eleven hundred nnd fifty-eight men
anil uomen "hit tho sawdust trail" during
tho day. His plea for support of the local
option meaauro was mado In tho after
noon and evening. Moro than 33,000 men
raised their hands In approval nnd prom
ised to support tho measure.
In tho morning, "Billy" preached a ser
mon on "Tho Twenty-third Psalm." In
tho afternoon his topic was: "Solomon A
Thirty-second Degree Sport," nnd In tho
evening ho spoko on "Nuts for Skeptics
to Crack." In his plea for support of
Governor Brumbaugh in his efforts to
obtain a county local option law, Sunday
said In part:
"Governor Brumbaugh Is keeping his
word on the local option question! I knew
ho would. I want to compliment you peo
ple of Pennsylvania for putting such a
man In Harrlsburg." Hero Sunday was
Interrupted by loud cheers. "Tho local
option bill will be reported out of commit
tee on Tuesday. On Tuesday. Got this
Into your heads, mcnl Petitions havo been
sent to tho different churches throughout
tho city for your signatures In support
of the local option bill Your signatures
mean that you support Governor Brum
baugh In his fight, and the petitions go
to the different representatives telling
them to support him. Sign them!
A loud outburst of applauso was the re
ply of the audience to UiIb appeal. Sun
day then shouted:
"Oh, the liquor Interests will fight to
tho last dltoh, tooth and nail! They will
not compromise! They don't wnnt to lose
anything I But every fellow who favors
tho local option bill baoked by Governor
Brumbaugh hold up his hand I"
Up went the thousands of hands, and
then, while the evangelist urged the men
to stand, thero was another outburst of
cheering, and the multitude arose. Hats
and handkerchiefs wero waved high above
the men's heads, and yell after yell and
cheer after cheor made the great wooden
structure rock with vibration.
"We'll send this message from old Phil
adelphia to Governor Brumbaugh!"
Sunday cried. "You bet we'll send itl"
After the excitement died out, "Billy"
"Now, boys, it may be there'll be a
demonstration in Harrlsburg. It may
be they'll want 4000 or BOW men to go up
there and show those lawmakers that
the people want local option. If thoy call
for them, get Into Itl" Again the evan
gelist was warmly cheered.
The three sermons of yesterday led 1158
men and women down the sawdust aisles.
Among thorn was Dr. William J. Roe, of
1322 Locust street, a member of the staff
of the Philadelphia General Hospital.
Hugh Black, ex-Receiver of Taxes, was
among the personal workers who led
converts down tho "trail,"
There were E85 converts in the morn
ing, 301 In the evening, and 272 In the
afternoon. In tho sermon In the evening
on "Nuts for Skeptics to Crack," Sunday
scpred nonbellevers and persons follow
ing new "Isms."
"I don't believe my great-great-greatgrandfather
was a monkey, sitting up a
tree, shying cocoanuts with his tall
across an alley at a nleghborlng monkl"
he exclaimed. "I have too much respect
for my ancestors. But If you think that
way, you can take your monkey ances
tors and go to hell!"
Sunday asserted his absolute belief in
the story of Jonah and tho whale, and
to back It up pointed to a flsh-monster
caught off the Florida Keys and shown
at a Chicago museum in 1812. That mon
ster, he said, weighed 30,000 pounds, and
there was an animal inside him that
weighed a ton. "If that thing couldn't
have got away with Jonah," Bunday
wanted to know, "what could?" Cora-
