THE PITTSBUEG-J DISPATCH, MONDAY, MAT 27, 188&
AWERT LIYE SERMON.
Bev.'Pr. W. J. Holland Preaches on
'Dishonesty With the Truth.
WINE ADULTERATION AS A TEXT.
The -Awful Process He Would Advise to Get
a Pure Glass of Port.
SKIPS AKD TWISTS OP SCRIPTUBES
,Kev. W. J. Holland, D. D., delivered a
. ' very interesting sermon in the Bellefield
Presbyterian Church yesterday morning, on
"Handling the Word of God Deceitfully;
or. Mental Dishonesty in Dealing with the
Trnth." The speaker chose his text from
II. Cor., iv., 1-2. After explaining the
verse and the conditions tinder which Paul
preached from a similar subject and used
the words, "What is it to handle the word
of God deceitfully?" Dr. Holland said:
j The words employed are derived Irom tho
wineshop, in which. It appears, it was cus
tomary in the days uf the apostle, as it is now.
to adulterate tbe fluids exposed for sale. The
business of the wine seller was evidently not
conducted any more honorably in the time of
the apostle than sow. It was customary then,
as now, to seek proht by tbe adulteration ot
It is said that if you wish to obtain a glass of
pnre port wine you must pinch the grapes with
your own hands, carry them to tbe press, put
tbe juice into the cask, sit on the bungbole all
the way from Portugal to yoar own cellar and
then get yourself detailed as a special police
man to watch the cellar door! Even then, with
these precautions, it is not quite sure that you
would get the real thing.
Half of tbe liquors sold are composed of in
fusions of logwood, alcohol, tarantula, juices of
tobacco and spit. The sign which is so com
monly seen in our clties,"Rectifiers of Spirits,"
would, in nine out of ten cases, more properly
read, '-Praviaers of Spirits."
The traffic in strong drink in the days ot
Panl was as tricky as now, and he draws ass
ure from their nefarious practices, which he
- applies when speaking of the deceptive manner
i in which tbe truth of God may be treated. "In
dealing with the word of God." he says, "we do
not follow in the crooked paths of tbe drsm
7 ebon, we do not corrupt and adulterate tbe
word; but, renouncing the bidden dishonesty,
we seek by manifestations of truth to commend
ourselves to the consciousness of men as in tbe
style of God."
After illustrating several ways in which
the word of God is handled deceitfully, Dr.
Holland touched on the greed of different
sects to"wrest the Scriptures into conformity
with their pet notions and give the word of
God a color and an interpretation which
neither wisdom nor scholarshipcan justify."
Cn Inning in the same vein, he said:
Another way in which the word of God is
"hafdled deccitfullv" is through tbe neglect of
the nrincinle that "Scripture should be inter-
ped by Scripture:" in other words, in cases
of joubtful interpretation, we are not to rest
satisfied with single passages, but are to take
into consideration all portions of tbe word of
God which deal with a given truth, and in the
light of the collective utterances reach a con
clusion. rOETUTETO A CONCEIT.
A theory, a. notion, roots itself in tbe mind of
an individual or a party of individuals, and
forthwith a justification of this theory, this
notion, is sought. The word of God is ran
sacked for passages which may be twisted into
a seeming justification of tbe conceit. Those
found are hailed with gladness as "proof
texts;" all passages conflicting with the cher
ished idi a art overlooked or explained away.
Tbe result is a half-truth, which is the worst
kind of a lie.
As an illustration of what he meant in a
practical way. Dr. Holland described the
rise and progress of the sect of Darbyites,
or, as they are more properly called, the
Plymouth brethren, and, at the conclusion
of that description, said: .
Denouncing all creeds, there Is probably no
sect Is. existence which has a more definite
creed. Denouncinc all commentaries on the
EfUlB a misleading they bare been most dilf
gent makers of comment upon tbe Bible, in
pnpt and out ot print. Denouncing the Christ
ian ministry, they claim that tbe v all are min
ister?, men and women. It is one of tbe curious
phases ot thought which, like others, bas
arisen in this nineteenth century, as tbe out
growth in part of tbe spirit of protest against
tbe abuses which have been allowed to invade
some parts at least of the (Treat Church
Catholic The proposed cure, unfortunately,
so far as tho Church is concerned,is worse than
the original disease.
In opposition to all partial and one-sided
statements of tbe truth, tbe apostle, in our
text, declares that be bas made it bis lifework
to manifest tbe whole truth.
On the latter point Dr. Holland enlarged
at length, and thus closed a most interesting

What WnsTnlked About nt the Opera Ilonie
In opening the Opera Honse Prohibition
meeting last night John W. Moreland said
he was surprised Saturday night to hear so
ranch from the German "antis" of the
Soutiside on personal liberty. Many of
those exponents, he said, had fled from Ger
many to escape compulsory servitude in the
German army. Personal liberty, as estab
lished by Americans, was good enough' for
S. A. Haines, a business man of New
Xort, was the principal speaker. The col
ored quartet had sung a song about "Molly
and the Baby," and Mr. Haines took this
for his text. He said the question was no
longer in the hands of the professional pol
iticians, in the hands ot the religious bod
ies, in the hands of the churches, or in the
hands of the societies. It is being consid
ered and will be de6ided by those people
who hare a "Molly and the baby;" the men
who realize that there is something else to
live for beside the pleasures ot the moment.
Mr. Haines quoted from the Uew York
Tribune, which declared that the liquor
traffic debased manhood, degraded woman
hood, delrauded childhood, and put a mort
gage on every cradle in the land. He de
cried hijh license. '
SANGUINE. OF SUCCESS.
An Illinois Clersrysnnn Believes Philadelphia
Will Go for Prohibition.
Eev. Dr.' Spencer1, of Illinois, who will
lecture in this State until after June 18,
gave an address at an amendment meeting
in Korth Avenue M. E. Church yesterday
afternoon. The speaker said that when he
was in Philadelphia, some two weeks
ago, the temperance people were feel
ing rather down-hearted, but that
the t:de had turned decidedly in the inter
vening time.and they are now confident of
carrying Philadelphia for the amendment
by a large majority. He said that, if as
much progress waspade in the next 20 days
as in the last ten, the amendment would be
Tbe rest of the address was taken np in
comparing the Pennsylvania Bailroad sys
tem to the "Eailway of Bum and Bum"
(the liquor traffic), and picturing the good
done by each, the benefits, expenses, etc.
A GANG OF HOODLUMS.
They Try to Ran a. Prohibition Sleeting and
There was a meeting in the interest of the
Constitutional amendment held yesterday
afternoon at the "Little Market House,".on
Penn avenue. There was a very large
crowd of boys and girls present who made
things lively by interrupting the meeting
by yelling ,fBnng in two more beers." "A
couple of swankcy this way," and other
Mrs. B. H. Jones was one of the speakers.
Every lew minutes the gang of hoodlums
would interrupt her, but she managed to
finish her address. The officer of the beat,
who was present, was afraid to interfere in
the proceedings, and it is not at all likely
that the leaders will hold another meeting
in that locality soon.
CEAPE FOR SALOONS.
That Is the Suggestion or Ed. Murphy He
Addresses 2,300 People in a Grove
Formation and Reformation,
Probably the largest temperance meeting
held daring the amendment campaign was
that in Silver Lake Grove yesterday after
noon. It was estimated that 2,600 people
were on the platform and in the grove. The
audience was composed very largely of men,
among whom were some of the most promi
nent residents of the East End.
X. 'Edward Murphy, the speaker of the oc
casion, was introduced by Jos. B. Hunter ns
"The Napoleon of the temperance cause,"
and, after the tumult of applause had sub
sided, young Mr. Murphy said:
There was a time in tbe history of this land
when reformation, not formation was badly
needed. And it did not come peacefully, but
through the force of more potent measures.
But to-day the supremacy of right prevails and
the Americans boast of a free, glorious coun
try. All the reforms to which reference has
been made have been advocated formany years
by the minority ot the people: and people
should not set temperance reform down as
wrong, because, possibly, a minority of the peo
ple in Allegheny county favor it. Too many
men are moved by tbe popular side of a thing.
If they think the amendment Li going to carry,
tbey get on and ride through with it; but if it
fails tbev will stand on th street corner, wink
at their friends, and say: "I told you so."
I have beard so many people say tbey could
take a drink and let it alone: but I do not know
why none of them ever began to let it alone.
Tbe thought, tbe loyalty and patriotism have
been thoroughly aroused in Pennsylvania, and,
if fbe amendment is defeated on June 18. its
suppnrters will have tbe consolation of know
ing tbey were in the right; and right will event
Moderate drinking Is the direct cause ofin
temperanccand when a man gets so far as to be
under tbe complete control of liouor. he loses
his TihvsicaL civil ajid relirions liberties.
He referred to the condemnation heaped
upon the movement by reason of its con
nection with "W. C. T. TJ. work. He said
he took no stock in denunciation, and he
was particularly opposed to criticising the
women's work. It strikes directly at the
virtue and sacredness of the home. When
a big, healthy, broad-shouldered man steps
on a platform and denounces women, he
possesses a decided lack of chivalry, and'is
not a representative type of Pittsburg man
hood. In behalf of the labor market, Mr.
Murphy stated that, out of $5 paid for
whisky, 40 cents returned to the labor mar
ket, while statistics show that, out of 55
paid for clothing, $4 28 go back into this
market. In support of this statement he re
ferred to a distillery not far from Pittsburg,
in which $350,000 is invested, and where, he
said, less than 70 men are given employ
ment. Mr. Murphy closed his address as
Let us rise up in tbe dignity of our manhood
on June 18 and say to -this curse, "Thus far
shalt thou go, and no further. Here shall thy
black cloud be stayed." Let us hang crape on
the door of every saloon and distillery in this
State, because death has come to this traffic,
and let us bury it so deep that it can never have

CDTTING THE KNOT.
Rev. R. A. Hill Says Some Very In
cisive Things in Severing a Tie.
JUDAS AND HIS OTHER MAJESTY
Are Given the Weight of a Blow for
SOME COMPARISONS THAT STING
The Bev. E. A. Hill, who has been pastor
of the Seventh Presbyterian Church for the
last seven years, preached his farewell
sermon last night. It has been well known
that a faction -of Mr. Hill's congregation
wanted to get rid of him, because he
frequently said things in the pulpit
which they thought he should not
have said. The reverend gentleman
stated last night that, while his opponents
only amounted to 19 members, he had
thought it better, for the success of the
church, to resign. He will remain, how
ever, in Minersville for another year, and
do such work among the friends of his con
gregation as they desire him to.
For his sermon Mast night he chose the
text from John xiii., 7: "What I do thou
knowest not now, but thou shalt know it
hereafter." and, in an extended discourse,
he drew illustrations from the life of Christ
immediately before His death. He spoke of
the treacherous -Judas in very strong terms;
of the denial and blasphemy of Peter, and
the panic of others, who fled every one to
his own. Of Judas, he said that he had
been a man who, although being so closely
and familiarly connected with Christ, sud
denly developed into the
MOST HATEFUL AND ABHOBBENT ,
character. If there was to be a traitor, it
would have been better had he come from
the sons of Belial than from the friends of
To anyone familiar with the troubles in
Lthe church, the whole sermon appeared to
be a piece of sarcasm; but, when the Bev.
Mr. Hill was asked point blank, he denied
it. A member of the Board of Trustees,
hovever, said: "There is certainly a shoe in
the sermon that fits somebody."
".Now that I have concluded my last ser
mon to you," Mr. Hill said, before the
service was over, "I feel it my duty to make

that time supposed to be reliable members.
We have now 123 members, which shows
an increase of nearly 200 per cent.
It bas been stated that the trustees

before! came. Possibly, but if so it had got
well out of sight when 1 came. The assertion
tbat tbe cburch bad been in easy financial cir
cumstances for a decade before my coming
here is simply absurd, and it ill be news to most
of my predecessors. On the contrary, as you
well know, tbe trustees obtained a grant from
Presnytery of S400 to make up my salary
to the amount of $1,000 per year; and
as you well know, the congregation, even
after tbi grant bad been made, could not sus
tain itself financially without resorting to an
almost interminable routine of amusements
and entertainments. And I myself paid out of
my own salary for the first two or three years
tbe salary of our musical leader ($200). For
give me this wronel I am sorry to be compelled
to make this statement, but I must allude to
these tacts to refute tbe slander tbat tbe
cburch has been retrogading financially during
my pastorate. I
A DIFFEEENCE NOTED.
Since my first- j ear with yon the grant from
Presbytery has been decreasiog year by year,

Dnring tbe last year we had also a marked
increase in our attendance. We had also some
very fine revival meetincs, and the only one
present who was not pleased was the devil. It
is said, whenever God's people build a chapel
the devil will build a synagogue of Satan on
tbe opposite side- of tbe street, and I have
sometimes noticed that, failing in tbe syna
gogue, be tries his band at a congregational
-meeting. It may have been partially so here7
but only partially.
It is painful for ns to separate, united as we
are tp the same blessed Lord. If I have been
tbe means of doing you any good, I devoutly
thank God for it. and I hope you will leniently
overlook my infirmities, of which you cannot
be more conscious than 1 am myself. Wby the
present separation should so suddenly and un
expectedly take place, is a question we cannot
answer: but our blessed Savior knows it all, and
be comforts us by his statement: "What I do

Dedication of a Prosperous, Headless
Church The Minister Wns Jealous and
Qnlt A Slngnlar Circumstance.
St. Peter's Lutheran Church, on the cor
ner of Station street and Collins avenue,
East End, was dedicated yesterday with ap
propriate ceremonies. The new church,
which is of brick with stone trimmings, was
filled even to an uncomfortable degree. The
interior was handsomely decorated with
potted plants'and evergreens.
The dedicatory services took place in the
morning. Bev. W. Passavant, of the En
glish Evangelical Lutheran Church, pre
sided. The dedicatory sermon was in Ger
man, and was preached by Bev. O. W.
Schettler, of Massillon, O.; the ceremony of
blessing the new edifice was performed br
ev. "W. Schaffer, of Allegheny. Other
services are reported as follows:
In the afternoon Rev. Mr. Passavant
preached a sermon in English, oommendlng
the church to God. Tbe speaker told of the
growth of Christianity in this country, and
said that to-dav Christianitv is a mighty power
in this land, giving 3 early 510,000.000 to the sup
port of the gospel. Rev. Mr. Hellenkamp, of
hharpsburg, preached a sermon in Gctman.
In the evening services were agaia held and
Rev. Mr. Schaffer, of Allegheny, preached tbe
The absepce of the regular pastor was a
matter of some comment, and the reason- is
that Ber. E. Schmidt, who was the, pastor,
has suddenly given up charge of the church
and gone to Illinois. His sudden severing
of his connection and departure was caused
by a dispute between the gentleman and the
members of his congregation. Eev. Mr.
Schmidt, it seems, was bitterly opposed to
secret societies, and often denounced them
from the pulpit ol the old church. Some of
the members of the congregation who were
also members of secret organizations, took
exception to this, and, for a time, there was
a lively row.
Peace, however, was patched up and
everything moved along smoothly until the
arrangements forthe dedication of the new
church came up. Tbe question of an assist
ant minister at the services caused the
trouble. The congregation wanted an Eng
lish speaking minister to assist in the ser
vices, as there would be many present who
could nof understand. German. Bev. Mr.
Schmidt, however, insisted that the minis
ter be selected from tbe bynod of which he
was a member. The trustees refused to do
this and the result was that when the an
nouncement of the assistant was made
known Bev. Mr. Schmidt packed up and
departed for Illinois. A new pastor for the
church has not yet been selected.

Wanted More Thinkers.
Bev. S. M. Cooper delivered a lecture at
the Tirst Christian Church, Allegheny, last
evening, on "A Bemedy for Political and
Soekl Evils." He said that the only way
to create reforms was for men to think, and
their, lack of ability to do so was responsible
for the evils of to-day.
UNFAIR TO THE BLACKS,
So Snys Bev. C EVLockr, or the V. S.,ln Ad
dressing Veterans' Sons.
Memorial Day was observed in advance
by Andrew Carnegie Camp No. 162, Sons
of Veterans, last evening. They attended
services at Smithfield Street M. E. Church.
The church was beautifully decorated with
banners and tropical plants. When Bev.
Charles E. Locke commenced his address,
the house was filled to overflowing. He
took his text from I. Timothy, vi, 12,
'tFight the good fight," and chose as. his
tfleme, "Battles of Peace." The address
was a strong one and eloquent. The follow
ing is a brief outline:
If I were to take my stand at the national
cemeteries at Gettysburg, Arlington Heights
or Cbalmette, and with magic power were able
to bring forth from their resting places tbe
soldier boys who sacrificed tbelr lives for their
country, and were to make the inquiry, "What
message shall I carry to the Sons of Veterans and
friends on this evening?" there would come
back one surging, simultaneous reply, "Tell
them to be true to tbe principles for which we
f ought and died."
The speaker then divided the snbject into
three beads, tbe first being "Tbey Fought for
Freedom." Under this be discussed the negro
question. He thougbt tbat the Government
was not doing right by tbe blacks, and that ap
propriations should be made to educate them.
He said that '6.000,000 of black faces are
asking to-day, 'What are you going to do for
tbe principles for wbich your fathers died?"'
Under the head of "They Fought for Home."
the speaker told of hardships of tbe soldiers
and their privations, tbat the fireside in the
home might be free from tbe ravages ot war,
and tbe Union be saved from harm. He then
went on to show the foes of the borne to-day
in tbe way of Sunday desecration, social evils,
The third head was "They Fought for God."
Tbe points in this were fully brought out, and
the address and tbe services closed with an
eloquent appeal to those present to stand by
the principles of their fathers.
