[LL THINGS ARE YOURS
UBJECT OF REV. CHARLE8 B.
t the First Methodist Church,
Pastor Says That Religion Is
Feeling of Dependence and the
pulse Toward Freedom.
At the First Methodist church the
istor, Rev. Charles B. Dalton,
eached Sunday morning from the
ibject, “All Things Are Yours,” his
xt being from 1 Cor., 8; 21-23:
"All Things,Are Yours, whether
ml or Apollos, or Cephas, or the
arid, or life, or death, or things pros-
it or things to come; all are yours
id ye are Christ’s.” He said In
Religion springs out of and is the
conciliation of two contending prin-
pies, namely, the feeling ot de-
mdence and the impulse toward
■eedom. The highest religious life is
lat in which the two are most per-
■ctly reconciled. A failure to do
stice to either one results in a one-
(•-* / ded, abnormal development. In
I irlstianity these two principles work
| : perfect harmony
I- Consider first the feeliug of de-
■mlence. It Is absolute. We are
I ipendent upon God for everything
& b have and for all that we are. Life
1 self is from Him. He la our Crea-
■i r. The ongoing of life is due to
■ Is constant upholding power. “In
■ 1m we live, move and have our be-
B g." Everything Is of His bounty,
■k pvery good and every perfect gift
^fc-fiom above ami eometh down from
Kr the Father of Lights, in whom is no
W variableness nor shadow of turning.”
Moreover this feeling of depend-
ence takes in Christianity a peculiar
turn. It centers In Jesus Christ. He
becomes all and In all. We are taught
that God created all things by Him
and that by him all things consist.
He Is therefore our Creator and pre-
server. And sin altogether apart, our
normal-life must have been lived in
But sin does intensify our depend-
ence upon our Lord. We cannot too
strongly hold in our grasp the truth
that sin has played sad havoc with
us. It has destroyed the soul’s com-
munion with God. It has loosened
our hold upon Him. Recently a great
theologican has asserted that it, is the
severing of this vital connection with
God which has brought upon us the
awful experience of death. And not
only is the persona! relation to God
broken up, but the whole race is af-
fected and presents the sad specta-
cle of a broken organism, which very
imperfectly performs Us functions.
Now the most fearful feature of this
situation is that we are hopeless and
helpless, if left to ourselves. We can-
not recover ourselves. Unless God
Interposes, we are doomed.
We are dependent therefore upon
Christ as our Redeemer. He is “the
way, the truth, and the life.” He
came to seek and to save the lost.
Let us come closer to this thought
of dependence upon Him for salva-
tion. It is not only that we could
get salvation In no other way. there
is a deepening of our relationship of
vital union with Him. He becomes
In a new sense the Lord of our
lives. We are the purchase of His
blood. We are no longer our own,
we are bought with a price. “Ye are
Christ’s,-” says our text. I believe
that as followers of our Lord, we
ought to feel more keenly this ab-
solute right of Jesus Christ to the
possession of our lives. He Is our
supreme and only Master. We may
learn a great lesson here, from the
Apostle Paul. Paul felt that as the
Lordship of Jesus was absolute, so
his own self-surrender must be abso-
lute. This is why he writes himself
the bond slave of Jesus Christ.
Yet though this self-surrender is
absolute It does not repress the Im-
pulse toward freedom. Rather, it en
courgges it. Indeed only so many
that impulse find perfect and ade-
This appears from what has already
been said that in Him we find our
normal life. As the planets are sub-
ject to the sun and find their normal
life In obedience to the great law of
gravitation which holds them to their
appointed orbits, so we were created
to revolve about our central Sun, the.
Lord Jesus Christ, and by obedience
to Him we are to rise to our fullest
and freest life.
This further appears from the
character of Him to whom we sur-
render. He asks of us no surrender
that He does not Himself make. He
Himself has ever been subject unto
the Father. In such obedience He
ever finds the fulness of life." To the
normal soul obedience is never a re-
straint. It is not automatic, but It is
the glad, free and spontaneous expres-
sion of the choice of the best and
highest life. Our Lord obeys because
obedience is the way of life. He can
never ask of us any service which
does not contribute to fulness of life.
Surrender is necessary because we
must thus lose our lives that we may
find them. It is only thus that we
may become conquerors of the vast
domain of life.
Never can we understand God’s
dealings -with us until we under-
stand that His commands are not in-
tended to narrow and circumscribe
our lives but to enlarge, to broaden
them. They restrain us from noth-
ing but death, they lead us to the
dominion promised In the primal
blessing: “All Things Are Yours.’
This need not astonish us. for it
is God’s original order. And in Jesus
Christ we are brethren to Him by
whom and for whom all things were
made. They are ours for the devel-
opment of the life which is life in-
deed and are given to us In the de-
gree that we are able to use them for
“He saw me plunged in deep dis-
He flew to my relief;
For me he bore .the shameful cross,
And carried all my grief.”
EVERY HUMAN RELATIONSHIP
THI8 IS SHOWN.
Dr. Robert Bruce Smith in His Sermon
at the First Baptist Church Shows
How Jesus Possesses All ths Attri-
butes of Omnipotence.
The Pre-eminence of JesUs Christ”
was the subject of the sermon preach-
ed Sunday morning in the First Bap-
tist church by the pastor, Robert
Bruce Smith, D. D., from the text
found in Col. 1:18; “That among all
he might have pre-eminence."
The following synopsis is given of
We are to speak of the pre-eminence
of Jesus Christ today that He might
have the pre-eminence in all of our
hearts. He is pre-eminent in every
relationship known to human history.
First, Christ is pre-eminent as the
Son of God. It pleased God that in
Him all the fullness of the godhead
should dwell. He possesses the attri-
butes of omnipotence. "By Him were
all things created, in the heavens and
upon the earth, things visible and In-
visible.” His miracles wrought while
ori the earth in visible form are un-
mistakable proofs of His divinity. He
possesses the attribute of eternity.
“He is before all things and in Him
all things consist.” There was never
a time when He did not have a being.
From everlasting to everlasting He Is
God. In the beginning was the Word
and the Word was God. He is without
beginning or end of days. No such
language is recorded of any other per-
son, angel or man.
Christ is also pre-eminent as the
Revealer or manifestation of God the
Father. God mav be seen in all of
nature. The whole universe reveals
the power, the goodness and the wis-
dom of God. But only through Jesus
Christ may we understand the redeem-
ing love of God toward lost sinners.
Christ Is, therefore, pre-eminent as
the Saviour of men. No other, earthly
or heavenly, ever made an atoning
sacrifice for sin. Other teachers have
presented lofty ideals but no other im-
parts the power to attain those Ideals.
His redemption Is for a lost world, all
races and nations of men. He enters
Into the depths of all human experi-
ence. He was tempted In all points
like as we are. yet without sin. He is
ahle, therefore, to srnftor those who are
tempted. And He is the only Saviour
of men. “There Is no other name
given under Heaven whereby we must
Christ is pre-eminent as the Head
over all to the Church. He Is the only
one who nas authorltv over the
Church. All other powers, are human
and fallible, yes, sinful. His resurrec-
tion from the dead Is the best creden-
tial of His headship. All pastors and
all religious teachers must look to
our political and business life ary so
artificial that we are not only left in
a State of painful uncertainty, but
this life is breaking In of Its own
weight, and revealing awful scenes
of rottenness and dead men’s bones.
I .ovait> to the truth calls for faith
in God—a realisation of his presence
and power. This implies the constant
exercise ot ail the highest powers of
The Christian life is not a certain
department of man’s life, it is the
whole of It. It brings man into the
kingdom of truth—not face to face
with petty dogmas and unreasonable
ritea—but it introduces him into the
kingdom of truth. It brings Into his
consciousness the highest and holi-
est truths, gives man the power to
conform himself to the demands of
the most exalted of these truths and
thus makes him the companion and
very co-worker with God.

Christ as the infallible source of truth.
Christ's pre-ominertte may also be
seen as a Trader, among nil historic
leaders. The fame of ail other great
leaders pales before Christ. Jesus
Christ belongs neither to the past, to
the present, nor to the -Uture. The
greatness of all other-illustrious lead-
ers is gradually lost sight of with thp
passing centuries, but Christ becomes
more illustrious In the march of time.
Christ is pre-eminent as the Unifier
of mankind. He is in the world recon-
ciling all things unto Himself, having
made reace through the blood of the
cross. The diversities of the races
may continue but the whole world
shall be conquered by the cross and
reconciled to Jesus Christ. With Him
there is neither Jew nor Greek, Say-
thian, bond nor free, male nor female,
but all are one in Christ. Of one
blood God made all nations and races
of men to dwell on the face of the
earth, so by the blood of One shall
all be made akin. If anv man be In
Christ Jesus, he is a new creature, and
belongs to a new humanity. He is
the first born among many brethren.
As Christ the crucified Redeemer
is lifted up before a lost world, men
are drawn toward Him, and as they aro
drawn toward Him they are drawn
nearer each other. Occidentals and
Orientals are bowing down to worship
Him as Lord of all. The kingdoms of
this world shall become the kingdom
of our Lord.
The supreme message of Christian-
ity to the Jews is saivatlon through
Jesus Christ, the Redeemer. The ago-
nizing prayer of Paul, the greatest
of the apostles of Christianity was
that Israel might be saved; and his
own message to them was saivatlon
through the crucified and risen Sav-
iour. This is the supreme message
of Christianity to the lost world as
it has been for nineteen centuries. Is-
rael shall yet be gathered in as a na-
tion and the whole world shall bow
before our Redeemer, the Unifier of
mankind. A closer bond of peace and
of good will prevails among the na-
tions of the earth today than were
ever enjoyed before.
Let ug take courage from this study
of the pre-eminence of Jesus Christ,
He Is leading us on to glorious vic-
tory. And let us make Christ pre-em-
inent in our own hearts and lives and
crown Him Lord of all.

Editor The Times:
At the Pioneers' meeting on last
Friday night the especial attention of
the members was called to the neces-
sity for each one to at once furnish
his biographical sketch and photo-
graph, for preservation in the associa-
tion’s btographtcal sketch book. Four
deaths have already occurred among
the membership and It is not unlikely
that others will quickly follow. In
deed, considering the advanced age
of the Individual members, it is more
than likely that one or more deaths
will occur before the date of the next
quarterly meeting. The association
has, at considerable expense, provided
a fine book for Just this use; ancl yet
not one of the members who have
already died had furnished the associ-
ation with any data regarding the In-
cident* of his life, and In only one
of the cases could even the date of
birtn he ascertained. Now It goes
without saying that there were inter-
esting facts In the lives of each of
these men, which ought to have been
preserved; and yet their deaths have
placed it beyond the range of possi
bility that anything of Importance will
ever be known about their lives before
coming to El Paso. If the Pioneers’
association means anything at all. it
means that it is to preserve all of the
history of early times and of Its
members that can possibly he obtain-
ed. Without this feature, which [he
constitution of the society amply pro-
vides for, even the very existence of
the society Itself is In vain. That
very fact Is the embodiment of the
reason for existence: and unless the
membership shall faithfully carry out
this purpose which no one, nor yet,
half dozen, nor even half a hundred,
of the membership can of thousands
accomplish. It requires the united ef-
forts of the combined membership.
The secretary states that less than a
score of the members have thus fat-
complied wltti the law requiring (item
to furnish him with sketches of their
lives and photographs. Each death,
under such circumstances, becomes
an irretrievable loss to the astwcla-
tion and to society at large and to his-
tory. Unless the little, sometimes ap-
narently In themselves, unimportant,
details of each life are recorded before
the death of the Individual to whom
they pertain, they are certain never to
be recorded thereafter: and thus Im-
oortant links In the history of El
Pago’s Infancy are forever lost. Ev-
“rv pioneer ought to at once furnish
his own particular contribution to the
hlstnrv of those earlv days, before the
sevthe of Time shall cut him short.
The Pioneers’ association is organized
to preserve the history and the asso-
ciations of early days and is not show-
ing any particular reason for Its exist-
ence if it falls to do so.

MINES AND MINING.
EXPERTS PREPARING REPORT IN
Prospective Purchase of 8everal Silver
firirica by English Capitalists is Con-
tingent Upon Results of Examina-
A party of mining experts repre-
senting English capitalist* have been
at work making minute ahd extensive
examinations In the mining districts
of Parral and the contlgious country
for the purpose of reporting on that,
country to the company which sent
them out. They were to make a gen
eral estimate on the value of the Par-
ral mines and more or less value of the
prospects of that part of the state of
Chihuahua and the Gnanacevl district
In Durango. It is staled by reliable
authority that these English capital-
ist are negotiating a deal with the
Hidalgo Mining Company of which
James .1. Long is manager and largely
owner, by which they will take over
the several rich sliver mines of that,
company, including two fine mills of
considerable capacity. The same au-
thority slated that this deal is con-
tingent solely upon a favorable report
front these experts, and that the latter
have finished their examination and
returned to Mexico City to draw up
the same, There is thought to be no
probability of this report being other-
wise thun highly favorable. Every-
thing has been eminently auspicious
for the forming of the best sort of a
report upon the country and the well
known solid value of the mineral prop-
ositions and future outlook of the dis-

TO DRAIN THE DI8TRICT.
Cripple Creek Mine* to Be Freed of
Denver, Colo., Oct. 29.—The serious
problem of draining the Cripple Creek
mining district Is to be solved by the
construction of a big drainage tunnel.
For some time the mines in the Crip-
ple Creek district have been ham-
pered by the large amount of water
which flowed Into th<- lower workings
of the various mines. Some of the
mines were compelled lo Install pump-
ing works to enable them to continue
work In the lower parts of tne works.
With the Increasing depth of the
many shafts of the district the dif-
ficult lea caused by the inflow of water
became greater and the drainage ques-
tion became more serious every day.
Finally the owners of the principal
mines decided to employ an expert
engineer to report upon some plan for
draining the district, which is about
three mile* wide and three and one-
half miles long. It lies west of the
town of Cripple Creek, bordering nr
the city limits and taking In the towns

D W. Brunton, the engineer, em-
ployed by the mine owners, reported
in favor of a tunnel, which would
drain the districts to a depth of over
3.600 feet and would permit the mar-
keting of enormous bodies of low
grade ore* from a great depth. Dur-
ing the year 1904 thp Cripple Creek
