MR. SCHIVEREA'S OPINION.
Editor op Tne TmnuNE i
Dear Sir: I thank yon for the excellent
editorial In your paper of Tuesday upon
that important and absorbing topio of
reaching the manses. This is the great
question of the hour, and is agitating
many minas in our laud, but It la a prob
lem that must be solved, and the sooner
the better. The masses are going from
undar the influence of the Gospel, and
leaving tnem to themselves is tne cause ol
most of tho troubles of today, and one
cause of the many riots and strikes and
tne loss or lire ana property, as Instanced
in the late Chicago trouble. Eavlng an
experience of laboring In the masses for
over fourteen years, I have some little
idea how the problem should be solved,
and I venture to think tbat the meetings
in Kcranton have demonstrated this.
Christ said. ''Go out anicklv into the
streets and lanes of the city." If the
masses are to be reached we must go to
tbem, but some of our churches unfor
tunately have left the masses alone and
instead therefore of going to the masses
they go irom tne masnos. we must go to
them in sympathy and lore and also in a
practical way. We should go with energy;
it is of no use to tell them what they are
or what they already know, but tell thetn
of something better and show them how
they may have tbis something better by
the cower of the grace of God. We mut
go to tbem with a desire to help them and
lue sure way to neip raem is to Dring
them in connection with the churches,
and in order to do this we must use every
means which can be found near at band.
For instance, make use ot the play houses,
dancing bnlls, music balls, and thousands
of people become, after conversion, mem
bers of tho church and self-supporting
The "massos" will not come into the
church directly, and to accomplish this,
the means briefly referred to must be re
You may ask me, how are you to get
them from the hall and tent meetings into
the churcheB. At all my meetings I take
down the names and addresses of Hioho
who claim conversion and also their church
preference, and this list is sent to the min
isters ot the churches preferred, and the
result of my meetings consequently de
pend upon the pastors and their energetic,
persevering aud systematic visitatiou.
With regard to those who have attended
and are concerned about their souls but
have not given their names, what then t
The salvation of those Bonis and the way
to heaven as I have found it, is by
ths churches organizing a district visiting
committee and have every house visited
and the question put to every lather and
mother, "Which church do you attend, and
do your children attend the Sabbath
school ' 1 heartily commend the sugges
tion referred to in The Tiuuunb, which is
quite worthy of adoption, but unfortu
nately I have in many cities found that
the churches hao become so wealthy and
self-respected that they have deemed it
best not to lower themselves enough to
enter into thin work.
I came to Wyoming valley at the invita
tion ot the ministers in the valley, aud,
with Mr. Weeden, have proved, I think,
tbat the masses can be readied, and it is
my praver tbat the paston who invited me
bere will now go on wltn tue biessed worn
where we have left off aud show to the
world how this great problem may be
solved. Feud. Scuivehea.

Editor of The Tiubcnb:
Sir The K"V. F. Srbiverea's tent meet
ings closed Wednesday night with great
success, there being hundreds of people,
and some of different beliefs, led to Christ
through tbis great evangelist's teachings.
Mr. N-htverea bas made many mentis in
the Wyoming valley during his sojourn
hero with bis eloquent apeaking aud the
great interest be us taken in all classes or
people, and we think the people of Scran
tou and vicinity have appreciated those
meetings and tbe good tboy have done.
And now we wish Mr. Scbrivera and Mr.
Weeden, also, bettor success than ever in
their new field of labor, and with God on
their side bow can It be otherwise?

His Own Life-He Has a Varied
and Highly Interesting Career.
Rev. J. II. Malce, the celebrated
blind evangelist, is oondnetlng inter
esting revival services at the Ziou
Evangelical churoh, Green Ridge.
Mr. Malce has bad an unique and
varied oarsar as a detective, preacher
and drummer. He was born in Janu
ary, 1854, and is, therefore, bnt 40
years of age and in I the prime of his
life. He speaks freely of bis psst ex
periences, and is very forcible in bis
addresses to men as to his own career
as a ' drinking man. Having the ex
perience in the past of how a man may
fall, he does not fall to draw lessons
from bis own life, which he applies
with singular power to bis bearer.
Mr, Muice Inst saw bis wife and
children on July 4, 1892, since when the
c ilauiity of total bindness bas been ae
espted with a cheerfulness beyond de
scription. As the blind evangelist be has won
his lanrals in the short spaee of two
years and is connected with the Cen
tral Mission union of Washington, D.
C. He is a fine specimen of the genu
ine old Evangelical style of preacher
one who raises tbe enthusiasm of his
hearers. Last night be gave an excel
lent address on his own life history,
which was not only highly entertain
ing, bnt very instructive. In speaking
of a saloon in which he bad spent $100
