THE PITTSBimGI- DISPATCH, MONDAY," JUNE IT, 1889.
VOICE OF THE PULPIT.
Sermons Which Mentioned the Flood
and the Amendment.
ALL CHRISTIANS URGED TO VOTE
For Prohibition at the Election To-morrow
as a Moral Duty.
LITTLE ELSE SrOEES OP IN CHURCHES.
iter. TV. J. Beid, pastor of the First IT. P.
Church, preached to a large audience yester
day morning on the prohibition question.
He toot his text from Matthew xxviii:
20. '-Teaching them to observe all things
whatsoever I have commanded you." The
subject of his sermon -was "The Bible and
the Prohibitory Amendment." He said,
after referring to the Johnstown disaster,
"suppose the owners of the lake and pleasure
ground before the ruins were cleared away
and the dead buried, should commence
to rebuild the dam, -what would be the
verdict of the universal heart?
Suppose they should say the
property is our own, and our money
paid ior it; we have erected our hotel and
cottages, and if the dam is not rebuilt our
money expended on it will be a loss; we
acknowledge there is danger, but in the
light of recent events, men know the
danger, and if they ouild their homes in
the valley and along the streams, it will be
at their own risk." If such a plea should be
made the world would cry, shame! Ten
thousand strong arms would tear down the
dam as fast as it was built. The State would
prevent that which threatened the lives and
homes of its citizens.
"There is another dam upon the moun
tains. Suppose we call it the licensing of
the liquor traffic Suppose we grant it at
first served a useful purpose. It was de
signed to regulate and restrain the danger
ous current, so that only so much would
escape, as would be for the good of society.
Circumstances have chanced and the dam
is no longer a success. The floods run over
the top, make their way from many a
crevice, wear for themselves great channels,
carry desolation into many homes,
and men, women and children are
reduced to poverty, involved in suffering
and hurried to the grave. The question be
fore us on Tuesday is this. Shall the dam
which has given way, not once or twice, but
a thousand times, and rmns the souls as
well as the bodies of men be rebuilt or blot
ted out of existence ior ever.
"What light does the Bible throw on the
answer to this question? Christ com
manded us to be careful of human life and
immortal sonls. But the manufacture and
sale of intoxicating liquors endangers life
and imperils souls. Therefore it is the
duty of every God-learing citizen to pro
hibit that which is killing thousands and
shutting the door of heaven against them."
IS A G. A. R. HALL.
Address by Rev. William Robertson, In AN
lecbcny. Yesterday Afternoon.
At a prohibition meeting at G. A. K.
Hall, Allegheny, yesterday afternoon, at
3:30 o'clock, Bev. "William Eobertson de
livered an address upon "Objections to the
Constitutional Amendment," in which he
adduced strong reasons for the belief that
the disadvantages of prohibition were far
outweighed by the benefits that wonld ac
crue. The address touched upon the follow
ing points: "They say that prohibition is
not a fit thing to incorporate in the Consti
tution, inasmuch as all police regulations
belong properly to legislation. T maintain
that the protection of families and individu
als from this contaminating curse is proper
ly constitutional and of the highest import
ance. Again, it is stated that prohibition
makes that a sin which is not a sin. To my
mind drunkenness is both,sinful and crim
inal. Hgh license is a fallacy, and no
license is able to subjugate the liquor
traffic. As for the claim that prohib
itory laws are sumptuary, I believe
that sumptuary laws appertain to the
public good. Pood cannot be adulterated,
ami yet whisky and beer are adulterated
and sold in great quantities. The amend
ment is not intended to prescribe what men
shall not eat or drink, but simply to pro
hibit the manufacture or sale of intoxicat
ing liquor as a common beverage. As tor
that side of the question, the public good
must predominate over the supposed rights
of the individual. The argument that men
are deprived of personal liberty by prohibi
tion might apply if men were isolated and
not in communities. Society allows no
isolation of incidents, and natural rights
are often surrendered for the general wel
fare. 25o man should be given by law the
right to injure others. No man can sell
obscene pictures or immoral books or drugs
for immoral purposes. The laws forbidding
these things are just and proper, and a great
outcry would be raised if an attempt was
made to repeal them. Prohibition does and
will prohibit, and as for the compensation
to liquor people, that must come afterward.
The question now before the people is the
decision as to whether we shall nave tem
perance in this State. Stick to the text,
and vote with your eyes open."
BY THEIR FRUITS.
Rev. J. T. OlcCrory Draws a Comparison
Between Eden and tlio Existing World.
"By their fruits shall ye know them,"
was the text chosen by the Bev. J. T. Mc
Crory of the Third TJ. P. Church, for his
sermon of last evening. The gentleman, in
referring to the Garden of Eden, said: "It
was probably intended as a sample of what
the Lord could make the earth, had man
not disobeyed his laws; but man did diso
bey the law and sin rose like a serpent to
crush him to earth. Sin not only ruined
man in a physical sense, but also blunted
his moral capabilities. Had man not sinned
we should not now be face to face with the
great struggle of righteousness over vice."
The speaker then related several stories in
illustration of his claim that righteousness
was surely on the side of temperance.
Mr. McCrory claimed that the majority
of people engaged either in the manufacture
or sale of liquor are bad which, in his esti
mation, proves that the business is an evil
one. He allows there are some exceptions,
to the general trade, but not many. A
liquor dealer may be a man of good heart
and nature when he first embarks in the
traffic, but, the speaker claimed, it is not
long before the associations will warp his
generosity and the evil of his nature will
develop and greed for self wiil oflset all
The speaker impressed upon his hearers
the importance 01 next Tuesday's verdict,
not only to themselves but to their children,
and announced that prayers would be held
all day in supplication for the success of the
Rev. J. IT. Burnett Is Outspoken.
. At the evening services yesterday at the
Cumberland Presbyterian Church, North
avenue, Allegheny, the Bev. J. H. Barnett,
taking as his text, "While they promise
them liberty, they themselves are the serv
ants of corruption." II Peter, ii 9, said
that the merits of a cause could be judged
by the men and by the arguments formed
upon its side. By this means could be as
certained the merits or contrary of the
liquor traffic. "What kind of men arethey
who uphold the traffic?" he asked. "How
many ministers are there praying for the
success of the cause, and how many wid
ows and orphans are to-night praying
for the traffic. The character ot the men en
gaged in this traffic can be gauged on the
principle of 'Tell me your company and I
will tell jou your character.' They say that
firohlbition will not diminish the sale of
iquor, but let them look to Vermont and
If ew .Terser. Next. tries nin own that.
utj.immuoarfI in Togue mat there ill
more liquor sold. If so why don't they vote
for prohibition? Their premises are as un
truthful as their conclusions are illogical.
The only remedy is its entire removal, and
the opportunity'comes on Tuesday."
TEARS FOR OTHERS'' WOES.
Rev. E. r. Cowan, of the Third Presbyterian
Cbnrcb, Advocates the Amendment.
Bev. E. P. Cowan, pastor of the Third
Presbyterian Church, preached last evening
on "Tears for Others' Woes." His text was
Jeremiah ix, 1: "Oh, that my head were
waters and mine eyes a fountain of tears, that
I might weep day and night for the slain of
the daughters of my people."
The speaker first gave an account of the
life and corruption of the time ot Jeremiah,
and stated that the Scriptures probably
refer to the loss of life by war, and also
through the excesses practiced in those
''Tears," he continued, "not alone give
evidence of sorrow, but also of helpfulness.
We must have feeling before action. Until
steam comes the engine -will not more.
With tears comes sympathy, and then a
desire to help. Without we had cause to
weep we should never have cause to laugh.
"Applying to the present there are many
things for which to weep; First, that con
stant menace to our happiness as a people,
the inordinate love of money and its twin
evil, inordinate longing lor power. There
are hundreds of men to-day whose
sole ambition is to possess power, and whose
every energy is directed to their ambition.
They will climb, no matter how many fall.
Second, we have to weep for the skepticism
and inconsistencies of insincere Christians
men who find constant fault with good
Christians; men who pretend to lire up to
the tenets of the church, and under its cover
lead disreputable lives. Thirdly, we have
to fear strong drink. These two are linked
together and are interchangeable. Not
only is it man's physical self that is ruined,
but also his moral."
The speaker made a touching allusion to
tears in connection with the late Johnstown
flood, and then passed on what he termed
the greatest cause for grief the fear that
the righteous may be defeated on Tuesday
next. Mr. Cowan urged on the congrega
tion the necessity of strong, earnest work
for the amendment, and hoped that the
tears shed in the cause of temperance would
then be changed to joy.
CONFLICT OF NATURES.
Rev. C. E. Felton Says tbe Animal Nature
Blast Be Subdned.
Dr. Felton, of Christ Methodist Church,
preached last evening from Galatians v, 19
20. His topic was, "Conflict of Man's Two
He first noted that great changes had taken
place in animals and men in some distant
period of the past, and claims moral and
physical sentiments left to themselves de
generate. Man as the product of natural
development in his physical, moral and
mental life never rises above the wildness
of the development of natural, law.
Men who through Christian relief have
revoked natural tendencies hare risen to
possess tbe best qualities, the best character
and the best type of manhood.
There are two forces in a struggle every
where for the mastery, nature and Christian
ity, and these two forces struggle in indi
viduals, society, State and nation. It Is a
general law that natural development by
force is upward in form, and that natural
developinentbyforcejis upward in character.
The speaker concluded with a strong review
of the struggle now taking place in this
State, and urged his parishioners to vote for
MEN OF feOUKD JUDGMENT
Will Tote Against 1 1.
Because prohibition was introduced into
Pennsylvania as a fraud, it has been nursed
here as a fraud.
It is wrapped in the livery of heaven, but
it comes to serve the devil. It comes to
regulate by law our appetites and our daily
lives. It comes to tear down liberty and
build up fanaticism, hypocrisy and intoler
ance. It comes to confiscate by a legislative
decree the property of many of our fellow
citizens. It comes to send spies, detectives
and informers into our homes; to have us ar
rested and carried before courts and con
demned to fines and imprisonments. It
comes to dissipate the sunlight of happiness,
peace and prosperity in which we are now
living, and to fill our land with alienations,
estrangements and bitterness. It comes to
bring us evil, only eril, and that continually.
Let us rise up in our might like one man,
overwhelm it with such a demonstration of
popular indignation that we will never hear
of it again in Pennsylvania as long as grass
grows or water runs.
Stand Firm for Justice and Independence.
At the eleventh hour we call upon eTery
right-thinking citizen, not wholly subject
to the dictation of narrow-minded church
men, to vote against the amendment Obe
dience to the teachings of Christianity, to
the demands, of equity and to the prompt
ings of common sense furnishes sufficient
apology if apology is needed for this hon
est exercise of the franchise. A vote on the
other side implies that the church is a fail
ure, that moral suasion is a humbug, and
that the day has come when it devolves
upon the State Legislature to reform men

THROUGH THE RUINS.
A Special Train to the Broken South
WHAT THE PASSENGERS SAW.
Tramping Oyer the Debris of Wrecked
Houses and Desolated Homes.
RECOVERING THIRTY-TWO ENGINES
At 8:30 o'clock yesterday morning a spe
cial train consisting of an engine, one
coach and a combination baggage and pas
senger car pulled out of the Union Depot
bound for Johnstown and South Fork, to
view the ruins of the Sonth Fork dam and
the scene of desolation and wreck which re
sulted from its outpoured waters.
On the train were 50 or more newspaper
men, the guests of the Pennsylvania Bail
road. under the direction of District Passen
ger Agent Thomas Watts. Mr. Watts first
planned the trip and successfully
carried it out to give all newspaper
men, who had not yet viewed
the scene of ruin about which they had had
so much to do in their different departments,
a chance to follow the flood complete, from
its source, until it wasted its strength and
passed harmless into the Allegheny.
The train sped out of the depot a halt an
hour behind the express. Theroad had been
cleared bv Superintendent Pitcairn, and
alter the first surt the passengers were kept
busy watching their equipoise. Stewart
was passed at 8:52, Greensburg at 921.
Here the engine needed a little fixing and
six minutes were lost, but on sped the train.
WHERE THE EFFECTS WERE SEEN FIRST.
As the train neared Deny the first effects
of the flood were seen in the shape of a car
of the ill-fated train with its side smashed.
From Derry on all thought of fast time was
lost in wavching on either hand for the ef
fects of the flood. Here and there a head
board of a bed was seen or a mattress or
some slight reminder of what had been, but
the mountains looked serene and beautilul,
as though nature was trying to hide the re
sults of the awful downpour of waters.
At Blairsville the express was caught up
with, and from there our progress was slow.
Even Nineveh, where so many dead were
taken from the ruins, did not show much
visible effects to one who had visited since
the flood the scenes now past. It was only
when the train fairly turned the curve and
Cambria City was seen that awful por
tent of the rush of waters suddenly real
ized. The train moved .slowly over the bridge
where lay the pile of debris and Johns
town, the ruined city, was unfolded to the
view of the observer, a picture of chaos.
But a slight glance was allowed of Johns
town and the train slowly moved on, past
Woodvale, past Conemaugh and on to
South Fork aud the dam.
Genral Hastings boarded the train at
Johnstown. William Flinn was also on
board, with Histed, the artist, and several
artists from other cities.
Tbe tramp to the dam, over two miles,
was along a beautiful winding walk through
picturesque scenery, which continued until
a large gap in a barrier ahead was hailed
the 3am so aptly called "the cradle of
death." A riew o'f the pafty was taken on
the brink of the dam, and another at an
other point by Histed. Little was new
about the dam that has not been told in as
plain words as are possible to command.
At 225 the train left South Fork to fol
low the track of the flood down. A lunch
was served on tbe train by the Pennsyl
vania Company. At the fork the scene all
along was indescribable. As the train
neared Conemaugh a host of men were seen
digging up the 32 engines that were em
bedded in the sand and tossed abont like
toys by the waves. Woodvale has been as
well described as is possible; pen can do no
more, and so it is with Johnstown and the
rest of the district.
At Conemaugh Assistant Superintendent
Trump showed the newspaper men how the
trains were run through the district. The
work on the Pennsylvania Baiiroad road
bed was the wonder of all. The viaduct is
built up, and No. 6 bridge and the Butter
milk trestle 2,500 feet long. The track is
oauasiea on anytning mat comes nauay,
and then filled in afterward. The road ex
pected to have double tracks through to
Mineral Point last night, and complete
double tracks in four or five days.
The hundreds and thousands of feet of
STEEL RAILS TWISTED
and bent, the site of the Gautier works, the
morgue at Johnstown have all been de
scribed, as far as description can convey to
the mind of the reader a picture of the scene.
From Johnstown a tour was made through
the ruins, over flattened house-tops, with
engine-tenders, cars and all in one complex
mass; part of a honse with a bed
room visible, with its former occu
pant where? Fully twenty minutes
the foot trod on naught but
ruined houses and debris before the
return trip merged the sightseers out among
the tents of the soldiers, across the river and
back to the depot via the headquarters of
General Hasting and the other different
officers, all in tents.
The town is still in chaos as far as debris
is concerned, and to all the job of clearing
away the wreck looked almost impossible.
At tbe bridge a channel had been opened
and here and there a spot cleared, but still
it looked like but a drop in the bucket to
what was to be done.
At a little alter 3 o'clock the train started
back. There was no laughter during the
whole trip. There was but one opinion ex
pressed. "It was too much for the boys; no
man can. describe what we have seen." The
return trip was made in just two hours and
ten minutes, 78 miles.
Several amateur artists were on the train
and took pictures of the different points,
sometimes, as the train moved, from the rear
platform, or again through the window.
The camera was turned on Superintendent
Pitcairn several times, before he hardlyhad
time to straighten his face and grab his

Prohibitionists believe that our wel

HIS CHURCH OPPOSED TO PBOHIBI-
Bev. McConnell, an Episcopalian, Declares
Against It High License Brook Pre
sides at a Lnrgo Ami-Amendment Meet
Ing In Philadelphia.
Philadelphia, June 15. The anti
prohibition meeting at the Academy of
Music in this city to-night was attended by
a large number of prominent citizens and a
generous sprinkling of ladies. Bepresenta
tire Brooks, the father of the high license
law, presided, and the principal speech was
madebyBer. S. D. McConnell, rector of
St. Stephen's P. E. Church. Mr. McCon
nell said that the Episcopal Church is al
most unanimous in its opposition to prohi
bition. He declared that members of any
Christian church ought not to favor the
amendment. A careful inrestigation shows
that about 70 per cent of the adults
of this State favor the use of li
quor as a bererage, and one-half
per cent of the entire population show that
they cannot drink with moderation. A solu
tion of the problem how to deal with the
liquor traffic and abolish the abuse of alco
hol was discorered in the new license law,
which is one of the best regulations ever de
signed in any part of the world. The doc
trine of the abolition of the liquor traffic is
wrong in principle, and any attempt to pro
mote it would be a cross wrong. In the pro
hibition school 100 men are expected to give
up the use of drink because one man cannot
use it in moderation. The Christian relig
ion holds in scorn the drunkard and the
glutton, but not the caterer and the bar
keeper, and does not regard the drunkard as
tbe. victim of the tarern keeper. The Pro
hibitionists are attempting to weight the
law with a larger load than it will carry,
and the progress of temperance in this coun
try has been retarded by the efforts to usher
it in by premature and untried endeavors.
Prohibition Is Ignorance.
It is not possible that the people of this
State, enjoying their present educational
facilities, and having arrived at their pres
ent high standard oi intelligence, will con
sent to be guided by a class of agitators
whose object it is to substitute coercive leg
islation ior missionary work, and to make
the government of the State dominate each
individual citizen, not only in relation with
his fellows, but also in his individual hab
its and predelictions. The cornerstone of
liberty in New England was laid by men
who fled from moral coercion in Europe.
That the descendants of these same meu
should revive, in a new form, the oppres
sion which drove their ancestors into exile
is unnatural and conflicts with the logic of
An intelligent and discriminating publio
rarely fails to grasp tht true spirit and in
tent that prompts the utterances of public
speakers. As a sample of the intemperate
aud unwarrantable sentiment promulgated
by the temperance fanatics in the present
campaign, the following bona-fide extracts
will convey their own significance:
At a Woman's Christian Temperance
Union gathering, in Moorhead Hall, Grant
street, recently, the Ber. James Maaden, a
prohibition orator, of Kansas, said that
"He was in Johnstown when the flood oc
curred, but managed through his own
energy and perseverance to escape the flood.
Those who had not done so, left a warning
six hours old go unheeded; waited, were
drowned and went to hades. He waited for a
moment to see the effect of his radical re
mark; and he saw it" Pittsburg Daily
The Ber. W. B. Barr. of the United Pres
byterian Church, at New Brighton, Pa.,
recentlv addressing a temperance meeting
in Pufaski township, made the emphatic
declaration that "If the liquor traffic were
wiped out of the United States we could af
ford to have a Johnstown calamity, with all
its attendant horrors, every month in the
year." Pittsburg Leader.
The New Brighton News, in the bounty
of its zeal to further the amendment move
ment, also took occasion to say: "It is a
curious fact, that all the counties which
suffered by the floods were against the
amendment." In reply to which the
Beaver Falls Tribune pertinently inquires:
"Where have we any evidence that any of
these poor men and women and children
were 'against the amendment?' " See
Pittsburg Leader of June 10.
At a joint convention of the Women's
Christian Temperance Union, the Prohibi
tionists and all other phases of temperance
workers, held in Moorhead building, at
Second arenue and Grant street, Ber. J. K.
Melhorn, then pastor of the Evangelical
Lutheran Church. Southside. obserred:
"He had said in his church recently that he
hoped that God wonld palsy the hand of the
man who would cast a vote against the
amendment when the election came. The
meeting then adjourned." Pittsburg
