Hopkins, preached nn eloquent nnd
forceful senium on the theme, "Our
Fututo Destiny Depends Upon 'Our

seventh chapter of Jeremiah and the
seventh veise. During tho coin so of
his remarks, he said:
"The text Is u part of a seimon Hod
gave the prophet to deliver to the peo
ple of Israel in a peilod well known
for Its spiritual corruption. The pro
phet was diioctcd to aim at the con
science of the people, and to point out
to them that the Hod of their fathers
could not be theirs unless they would
adopt the ptliiclplcs which accounted
for the gieat succes and the gloilous

"That was tho ccnti.il fact or truth
of the norninn Jeicnilah had to delicr
to tho people In the name of the Loicl.
The piophet, In tho capacity of u sci
"tnnt, had to pi each the word as It
came to him; he had no nuthorlty to
modify it, and as a member of that
gieat Thcociacy ho was to practice
what he pieachcd.
"The people ot Israel iciiiembeted the
Loid's house, and were cry sstomatlc
in their attendance; but they weie not
fit persons to enter that house because
they were not In the proper spirit.

cause God understood them. Hl mes
sage was not merely a thicatenlng let

them at the time.
"The prophet had to be sliueie and

what God thought of them, and that
they might have the chance also to let

ROCKY GLEN EQUITY CASE
LIVENED UP A BIT.
Allegation Is Mado That tho Plain
tiffs Side Is Representing In
terests Hostile to tho New Rapid
Transit Enterprise Objection
Made to tho Disclosure of In
formation That Could Bo Used to
the Disadvantage of tho Defen
dantsAnother Hoaring Today.
At Satut day's healing In the injunc
tion case of the Hooky Glon Water
company agaliwt the Lackawanna and
Wyoming Valley Rapid Transit com
pany and others, a little enllvcnmrnt
was Injected by an allegation on the
part of the defense that the plaintiff's
side Is the lepteset.tallvo of Interests
hostile to the new inllioad enterprise.
The Identity of the alleged hostile In-
terpstn was not disclosed In so many
woids, but It was fair to gather fiom
all the circumstances that the meni
bets of thp Rocky Glen Water com
pany, Arthur Frothlnghain ct al., weie
not the parties meant.
Tho allegation camp foith during the
examination of George A. Lee.of Phila
delphia, an olllecr In vailous of the de
fendant companies, and, accoidlng to
Major Warren, of counsel for the plain
tiffs, "the biggest man In the scheme,
next to Senator Quay."
Major Wanen asked Mr. Lee whole
the Wllkcs-Haire terminal Is to be
located. Attorney Gill objected to the
question as being irrelevant, and In his
argument In suppoit of the objection
he made the declaration that Major
Wui i en was employed by Intctostft un
friendly to the defendants and that if
tho lufot inatlon ho sought was dis
closed, It might be used to tho disad
vantage of the defendant companies.
Judge Kelly i tiled that the question
was lolevnnt to tho Inqulty as to tho
bonn-lldes of the defendant companies,
and ovn tilled the objection. The ques
tion, howpver, was barren of tesults.
.Mr. Lee niwweied that the Wllkes
Haue teimlnal has not as yet been de
It was further attempted to get Mr.
Leo to admit that nil these various
loads, some chartered as steam roads
and some as street railways, were to
be joined together and operated as one
big trolley system.
Mr. Lee would not admit this. The
roads would likely be operated In har
mony, he ald, but they would not all
bo operated as trolley roads. Tho char
tors for the steam roads give thein the
light to use electricity ns a motive
power, If they so choose. The power
would probably he applied by means of
a thltd rail, but this had not been defi
nitely determined as yet. Klpctric en
gines or storage batteries might be
