New- York Nov. 4 Rev Dr. Charles
H. Parkerhurst a* the Madison avenue
Presbyterian Church to-day. took next
Tuesday's el*K*tlon as the baw of nts
sermon. It was Dr. Parkursf* church
which Mr. and Mrs William J Bryan
attended last Sunday when In New York
As Dr Parkhurst's topic for to-day was
announced i wek ago the church could
ardly hold the |*eople who came to listen
The doctor said in part that pt riot ism
meant the devoting of ourselves to our
country, rather than our country to our
selves No patriotic could fail
to recognize as one of the perils corfront
nc America the strained relations which
exist between the two competing classes
of our population He added
After the pr* identlal candidate, who.
to a considerable extent Mands as the
representative of the ImJuvtria* disaffec
tion has been defeated—as it is said he
will be—ahe situation so far wii: not be
altered at a I Trie candidate has not
made the disaffection. It Is the disaffec
tion that has made the candidate And
there is such an inundation of is and In
some of its Ingredients so rabid and ir
redeemable a* to have succeeded in tem
porarily water-logging a great political
party that when we.l afloat and Its com
in go*d working order, exist* for

not a banker or a poll.leal economist, and
' et without being el*her. and
being simply a pres- aer of
righteousne*#. it is axiomatic so
say that a dishonest dollar is
a national fre id and that to Indulge in
a dollar that mike- believe it 1* a whole
dollar, when It is only a half-dollar,
would be to transform our entire neonle
Into a great American Ananias That
may not be the phraseology of the econo

tha: righteousness was the only thing *o
