TABERNACLE MEETING BEGINS

man of pleasant' address, Bound rea-
. r a i
On Tuesday night of this week, as
stated, Dr. Miller preached his first
sermon and it was an aoie anu ciear
presentation of the Bible text se
lected. He has none of the fireworks
of Billy Sunday and McLendon but he
is more on the order of bam Jones
Without the biting sarcasm of jon
he preaches very much the same
kind of doctrine. He rings clear anl
true in condemnation of the popular
sins of the day. He has no law for
the new issues, but like St. Paul,
Breaches the New Birth-wnan must
b born again.
Dr." Miller has conducted Evangel
istic meetings throughout the country.
He is a most attractive and powerful
preacher, convincing and eloquent.
. The large tent that has been erect
ed will be, it is predicted, within a
few days insufficient to accommodate
anything like all the people who will
be in attendance. For, with the fine
roads which we have leading out in

CONVENTION IN SESSION
The Republican National Conven
tion is in session at Cleveland, Ohio,
and Hon. Theodore Burton, member
of Congress from Ohio district, de
livered the keynote speech, supposed
to contain the issues upon which the
President will go before the people in
November, adhered principally to the
tariff, tax reform, prosperity, econo
my and party regularity. Burton had
a lot to say about keeping the party
regular and threw out all of those
who attempted to interfere with the
party program. He might have had
Morris, Borah, Brookhart' and La
Lollette in mind, and he got a big
cheer for it.
The corruption and graft in public
affairs, which were revealed by the
investigation recently conducted in
Congress, were pooh-poohed by Bur
ton. Evidently the Republicans will
try to avoid reference to the disclos
ures made by these investigations hi
the campaign. Burton dismissed them
abruptly with the statement that the
country, will not listen to the 'ravings
TTZ TrLr tLTf?
to have the endorsement of President
An expression of regret that Con
gress did not hold up the Japanese ex
clusion law until President Coolidge
could have "negotiated" the matter
with the Japanese empire brought no
applause. Endorsement of the idea
that in future war all capital, as well
as labor, shoud be conscripted in or
der to stop' profiteering, was irener-
ously applauded, as was a declaration
that courage as well as honesty is
needed among public officials.
The speech of Burton had but one
meaning, to "stand hitched" to the
special interests, and that there
should be but two parties and that
the Republiuan organization be the
keepers of the individual conscience of
of each member of the party, and
that big business control everything
in both parties.
