Secretary Tillmnu, of the Farmera'
t Alliance National Convention.has said
I he wns not there as a politician or in
the Interests of any third party,but he
did desire to call attention to the last
Congross. "More money was spent by
that profligate billion dollar Con
gress," exclaimed Mr. Tillman, "than
was spent by all the Congresses during
the first Boventy-two yenrs of the his
tory of this government. It is $60 a
day for every day since the birth of
the Savior of Mankind; $10 n minute
for every minute since the Declaration
of Independence" and so on through
along series of curious calculations.
Well, what of It? Did this enormous
expenditure increase taxation? If so,
In what way? National taxes In this
happy land are levltd only Indirectly,
A the shape of customs and, internal
, .i it
iacvcuuu uuuus, uuu iijeHU were ruiuer
lowered than increased by the "billion
dollar Congress." Then, who Is hurt
by the expenditure? And If it Is ex
travagant, why did not Mr. Tillman
specify some of the extravagant fea
tures?. Is it in the enormous sums
fpald for pensions? As a Southern
beinocrat, he doubtless thinks eo, but
he Is so well aware that the country
loes not agree with him that he would
.not dare say so publicly. Is it in the
'amount paid for the improvement of
Southern rivers and habors? O, dear,
,no; Mr. Tillman is a Southerner. Iu
jfact, this impressive title of "the
)blllion dollar Congress" Is a mere
phrase invented by Democratic leaders
to frighten weak-minded people. They
use it in the belief that the people will
not reflect that this is a billion dollar
country, and its expenses must bo in
roportlon to its size and the magni
tude of its operations.

No town along tho lino is moro agitatod
over tho oloctrio railway than Ashland.
The uncertainty of the road goinK through
tho town has aroused the pooplo and a
petition is being circulated with a view to
getting tho Borough Council to again
change its decision and allow tho use of
tho "T" rail and narrow gaugo road.
Many of tho doubtful Thomases of town
have at last arrived at tho conclusion that
tho olectrio railway is a go and it is amus
ing to see tho scramble f,r positions on it.
The fact is that the majority of the ap
plicants are those who belittled the project
and holped manufacture public opinion
against tho projectors.
Intorest in electric railway matters is not
confined to tho local road. TboTamaqua
& Lansford road is attracting considerable
attention, but will not be constructed until
spring, Tho Lansford Record thinks tho
people of that placo will now have a chance
to get even with tho Jorsey Central rail
road and that thoy will not bo compelled to
haul froight half a miio or moro to load the
trains of that road, Tho olectrio road, if
oxtendod to Summit Hill,, will bo of groat
advantage to tho Switchback road.
Yesterday hundreds of people took a
walk from town to the sceno of work at
Wm. Penn and many who hesitated to
boliove that tho road was actually under
way were vory much surprised when thoy
saw what bad boon done the past week.
It is certain that tho road will havo an Im
mense traffic, and tho other railroads will
not bo hurt, eltbor. It has long since been
demonstrated that the moro facilities that
aro offered pooplo for travel, tho moro thoy
travol. Tho road will bo a boon to the
minors throughout tbo valloy.

An Interesting Sorrnon in the
Methodist Episcopal Church
Yosterday by Rev Powick.
Tho Rovival Servicos.
Tho se.-mons at the Methodist Episcopal
church yetrdy were delivered with
special reference to the revival services now
)oing held. In the morning ten new mem
bers uoro received on probation after
nhlch christians wero addressed on the
solicitude thoy should feel for tho lost.
Tho loxt was from Jeremiah 9 1: "O thai
my head wero waters and mine oyes a
tountain of toars that I might weep day and
night for tho slain of tho daughter of roy-
people." Jeromiah has boon rightly called
the wcoplng prophot bocauso ho was so
fillod with sorrow at tho moral degradation
of God's pooplo during tho captivity that
ho wept much in secret places on account
of It. And notwithstanding his deep solid
tudo for them ho desired to lo still moro
burdened for them, and seems in the text
to bomoon himself for his light ooncorr,
God's people need to catch the samo spirit.
And it is lor want of it that many moro aro
not saved than are. If tho governor of
the stato should issuo a pardon for a con
demned criminal and appeal to the crowd
lor some one to bear it to the prison a hun
drod men would contend for tho privilege.

Tho mission of tho Paraclete, holpor, or
comfurtor, as He is called, Is to convict the
world of sin, of rightoousness and of
judgmont: Of sin because tbey swear,
steal, slander, Ho, drink, etc? No. But
"becauso thoy bollovo not on mo." The
world's standard of sin is false. Mon aro
wicked btcauso thoy are sinful. Sin lurks
within and Is tho 6ourco of polluted Ifvs.
riin levols itself against God. Men often
think.it mutters little how thoy .treat God.
Tho wholo of charactor is supposed to bo con
cerned with tho relations belwoon man and
mau. But the damning sin of tho world is
that of tho rejection of tho Son of God.
Men's future depends not so much upon
what they do as upon what thoy are. In
deed what mon loavo undone is quite as
important as what they do. Sins ot omis
sion aro denouncod moro unsparingly in
the word of God than sins of commission.
Tho word runs : "Inasmuch ai ye did it
nof how can wo escape if wo neglect of
sin because thoy boliovo not he that be
lieveth o shall bo damned." The world
also has a false standard of righteousness.
Too spirit convicts men of an attainable
righteousno8i which springs from tba
dienco to tho moral law, tho observance
of rollgious rile ? No. But a rightoous
ness which results from tho ascension of
Christ and ihocontummation of tbo scheme
of salvation oven tho righteousness ot
God which is by faith in Jesus Christ. The
spirit also convicts mon of Judgment. Not
a judgment to come, for tho bellof in this
Is instinctive, but a judgment of tho prince
of this world which iuvolves tho downfall
of sin and the triumph of right. "For tho
Son of God wts manifested to destroy tho
works of thodovil."
