but in a sltnpV and *fT< iv* Myle, tho
Cardinal pr ached an admlrablo wfiRN
*n "Th* Kli whip of ClirM snd th** Duty
of Man to Give Him l/oyiil Allegiance."
||* began by miying:
"Th* *bi Hc.at ion of thl heatritlful lem
|de t n Almbrbtv Oasl. under the invoea
tion of th** .’-tacred Heart of Jcutus Chrlat.
la. m.v brethren, a public and m aolemn

over ervlfty i)nd over the soul of man.
I’f’.rlst J#*au Ih rof only our High iTfaat;
I fa* U also o*tr Kplritual King."
Then he cootras#*d tha* <llffcrenca be
tween th# manner In which Jesus acquir
ed Ills dominion m*r us, compared with
the cuurve of earthly co* queroHß, d**cUir
Ing thill Jesus naif tra load us not by

perial award but by ’hr aw *rd of tho
Fjdrlt whWh Is the word of Goal: not hy
enslaving the bodies of men, hut by rea
cultig their MOD Is; m * *y aheVllng the
bltwd of others, but Hla own. In reeog
nitlon of which o**l bad **xotfed Him
aleave all ru>rs, an that every nation shall
onnfeas Him to Is* the Hon •(
God. the Father Next he conlraated tha
Kfngklom of Fhrlft with carthlv klng
d'ns, declaring that while the latter had
their territorial limits and w-re maintain
ed by the sword. Hla kingdom—tha
hurch—ls without limitation In t* i rritory
or dumtion. anal |. mainuiiiNl by love.
Th** fiwist notable iKtssagc of the dis
course was that declaring that there wai
no conflict between loyalty to tha klng
i>m of <*hrlst ind !*>ylty to one's coun
try, iHit the latter should not come first,
lit* sold: "Rome time ago, I think about
the time of the of-tdrig of the war In
South Africa. I read In an English Jour
nal some remarks ascribed to a promi
nent divine Me mode thl* observation,
which, let ua say. whs prompted by over
zealous patriotism *1 am first of all a
British subject nnd then I am n church
man.' That D Just the same, my brethren,
,*s if one of you w#*re to say to-day, ’1 am
first of all an American cltfien nnd then
I am a Christ lan.' I do not think much
of the loyalty of the religion of vnan
who relegates hi* Christianity to tha
ba. kground. ! He* nothing in the religion
of Christ that is opposed to th** Constitu
tion of the I'nlfcd fftstes I aaa nothing
In our const It u ion thut is at vurtanew
with the teachings of the gospel. They gr*
in perfect harmony. Ttierefora 1 would
rather say I am. thanks be to God,
at tha* same time a Christian
and an Nrmrl* an < litxen. By the grace of
Jimin Christ. I am a Christian. By the
favor of divine providence, 1 am an
American citizen. The I#ord haa Imixised
U|*on me th> double duty of loyalty to
Chrlat und to my country."
Than followed an argument why men
should have faith In Chrlat, and showing
th** weight of *~tlmony that exiats to Ilia
truth of th* gospel am! concluding with
an appeal to men t*> give Him their !n
