"Aside from any consideration of
mutals or Miics, which is not without
great weight," said Mr. Amerman, "I
desire the Abolition of ltlu death penalty
for three reasons. FUrti, It will lesson
th; commission of crime; second. It will
Improve the administration of Justice;
and itlvlrd, it will tend to promote good
order In society. If its abolition se-cure-d
any one of these ends It should
have the support of thinking men.
"The experience of centuries has

huuso breaking were felonies In Kng
lund punishable by death. It was urged
'th.it the abolition of the deo.ith penalty
for those crimes would tend to demoral
llze g xitity, lessen real rain t upon the
vicious and weaken the administration
of justice. In the debate upon the bill
abolishing the death penalty for these
causes Lord Chief Juftieo Ellenboroiigh
declared : 'If thefhellt of forty ehlllLnus

'The death ptivaHy was abolished.
The commitments for these crimes for
three years Immediately pivceuiiijr the
abolition were 4.724, while the commit
ments for the three years immediately
succeeding Its abolition were 4,292. The
commission of these crimes was re
duced by the abolition of the death
penalty. Lest, however, it be said that
this result was not due to tho abolition
of tire death penalty, but to the gen
eral Improvement in ihe character and
morals of the people, a comparison of
me commitments for crimes for which
the punishment by death continued, vz.:
murder, arson and robbery, for thesame
years shows that for the first three years
there were 2,1.10, and for the second
three years there were 2,247. an Increase

wisdom of repealing her excellent law
of 1872 Is 'not apparent.
"Alain's had for many years practiced
abolition of the death penalty. Although
its provision was retained In her laws,
which required a year to nlapse be
tween conviction and execution, and
then to be ordered by the governor.
The provision for execution was not
mandatary, and few executions ware
ord?red. In 1876 her leglsture abolished
capital punl-shment. In ISSJ. moved to
acitlon by the maddened passion of ft
life convict who killed a keeper tn
prison, her lpglalaturerentored the dciath
penalty by a. barely constitutional votft
In each house. In 1887 her lefrlslatuire
ngal'n abolished the penalty with a two
thirds vote in one house and a three
fourths vote in the other.
"In 1882 tlKtre were committed in the
I'nlted States 1.487 murders. Of tihe3
murderrsbutl21 w're executed. In 1891
there were commuted In the UnMed
States 6,906 murders notwithstanding
the supposed deterrent effects of the
death penalty. Of these murderers but
123 were executed. In other words, but
8pe'rcent.of the murderers In 1882 were
executed, iand but two per cent, of tha
murderers In 1891 were executed. Juries
have practically abolished the death
pWMiity. The administration of Justice
Is brought Into dispute. Th'5 law Is
held In contempt by the people. The
deterrent effect of certain punishment
ts lost. Severe penalties defeat Justice.
What It Means.
"The vicious are encouraged In their
wickedness. Crime Increases. Laws

"With no unjust sympathy for the

As to Oatme'ul.
Oatmeal For the steel cut oats not
subjected to previous heat long cooking Is
required. All raw cereals require Ions

Liver Rolls Tuko 1 pound of calf's liver,

piece of bacon on each piece of liver, roll

WHAT IS UNIVERSALIS
Kestorution of the Whole rumilv to
Holiness and Happiness.
SEKMON OP KEY. P. E. ADAMS
Ho Sets Forth in Plain Language What
the Members of the Inivcrsalist
Church Believe In and Gives the
Grounds of Their Belief.
Rev. F. E. Adams, of Nicholson,
preached a special sermon to a large
congregation at the All Soul's Univer
salis! chapel last evening, his theme
being "What the Unlversalist Church
Stands For." The reverend gentleman
Every church, society and organiza
tion stands for something. It Is only
by Its usefulness, Its progress nnd prin
ciple that a church, society or organiza
tion can demand Its light to existence.
Many an organization has risen but to
full because the principle it represented
was too slight to hold Its own. On the
other hand, an Idea may possess mir;ht
and power sufficient to ensure Its con
tinuing Its existence even though it
may not be represented by any organ
ization. The Unlversalist Idea presents
a striking Instance of this fact. It Is
held from the earliest times In theChrls
thin church. '
In the early days of the church It
taught everlasting life. Of the six
theologians of the school one taught an
nihilation and four taught universal
salvation. The Universal idea was held
by the prominent fathers of the church
notably so In the case of Clement, of
Home, nnd Gregory, Ulshop of Nyssa
und all through the centuries that have
Intervened there have been those who
cherished largely the same hope. If we
seek for the reason for this we find it
expressed ns the subject of Inborn
yearnings of the heart. It Is the feeling
which Is deepest rooted In noble hearts,
being the expression of a heartfelt de
sire for a perfect harmony of the crea
Tidings of Greut Joy.
'As Unlversallsts we believe that
Unlversallsm Is the 'Glad tidings of
great joy, which shall be to all people.'
First, we believe that the Holy Scrip
tures of the Old and New Testaments
contain a revelation of tho character
of God and of the duty, Interest and
final destination of mankind. Unlver
sallsm plants itself upon holy scripture
from Orlgen and his associates down to
the present time. Prominence given to
scrlintural argument, instead of philo
sophical argument, will demonstrate the
fact that the Universal church takes
the Scripture as the man of its counsel.
We believe that there is one God,
whose nature Is love, revealed In one
Lord Jesus Christ, by one Holy Spirit
of grace who will linally restore the
whole family of mankind to holiness
We believe that true 'holiness and
true happiness are inseparably con
nected, and 'that believers ought to be
careful to maintain order and practice
good works, for those things are good
and profitable unto men.
"What Is tho legitimate conclusion of
these conceptions of God, Christ and
Ills Spirit? Unlversallsm. If God is a
being Justly characterized as a 'God of
love;' if Christ Is the 'Sent of God' o
Impart the good tidings of great Joy; if
the Holy Spirit comes to hearts of mep
refreshing and redecmilng, tihe legiti
mate conclusion is that tMiese agencies
thus set In motion will accomplish their
purpose 'that dm the universe there is
one God, one law, one element and One
far off Divine event toward which the
whole creation moves.' "

"II ill IS IE PUSH,"
When the advertising atmosphere is so
heavily charged with exaggeration, it
is well to remeinher who the honest
advertisers are. Windy assertions about

at impossible prices, Gnd no lodging

Dull trade throughout the legitimate
business season may make necessary,
wild statements from some clothiers to
attract trade, but the schemers will
have to scheme harder and find new
disguises for their lame excuses before
they can stop the people from coming
to this store for honest values. The
triumph of this store is the triumph of
intelligence, aud you have made it so.
Trade has been up to the mark here,
