When Morning Comes,
"Weeping may endure for 8
night; but joy cometh in the morn
ing." Psalm 30-5.
When morning comes. And it
will come! Morning will come!
There never was a night yet that
was not followed gy morning.
It may be night for us now-
night of some sore trial or sorrow.
But be brave of heart and of good
cheer; morning is coming. Sunset
is surely and inevitably followed
"Weeping may endure for
night" We all have our nights of
weeping. There are nights that
are full of sorrow and tears. There
are nights of worry and anxiety.
There are nights of blasted hopes
and of unfulfilled ambitions. Most
of us know what this means. What
disappointments, what heartaches,
what weeping, the night has meant
for some of us.
But what of the MORNING? Yes
we know what that means, too. We
well know what weeping for a
night means; and we know, too,
the joy that "cometh in the morn
ing." WHEN MORNING COMES!
That means deliverance. That
means new hope. That means new
confidence and courage. That
means a new day the brighter pas
sage of Isaiah: "Watchman, what
of the night? encouraged us to
look forward. When morning
comes. That means the reward or
faith; God's answer to the heart
that trusted in darkness.
But the coming of morning does
not mean that another night will
not come. We recall the passage
in Isaiah: "Watchman, what of the
night? Watchman, what of the
night?" The watchman said: "The
morning cometh and also the
night" Morning and another
night Sunrise and sunset; sunset
and sunrise. Morning and night;
night and morning so runs our
life on earth.
Will there be no end to this?
Thank God, yes! There is coming
that great morning when night
shall be no more! Then the weep
ing we have endured for the night
will be forgotten in the joy that
shall be ours in that eternal morn
ing. "Weeping may endure for a
night, but joy cometh in the morning."

with us? We invite you to partici
pate with us in the fellowship and

Shall we ever approach to an un
derstanding of Jesus? Will such a
thing ever be? Jesus, that name
which is above all other names, a
name at which every knee should
bow. In Him are depths which no
human has ever sounded. Heights
are there which no human mind
has ever scaled. We stand before
Him in awe and reverence and hu
mility and our prayer is: "Light,
more light while time shall last
'Till shadows vanish in the Light
of Lights." How shall we approach
to an understanding of Jesus? A
mere intellectual approach to the
Master has never brought a man to
a full understanding of Jesus.
"Follow me," Jesus said, and he
chose 12 men to be with Him. "If
ye be willing," He said, "willing to
do God's will, ye shall know the
doctrine." The disciples had an
experience with Him. They fol
lowed Him in action and in life,
Out of such relationships love
sprang and so it will to us. He is
our Saviour and High Priest and
Friend. We can know Him In our
heart of hearts. "If any man shall
do His will, ho shall know of the
doctrine." John 7: 16-17.

nobody will have the privilege of
voting for the President and Vice
President All that anyone of the 72,000,000
qualified voters of the United States
can do next November will be to
vote for a list of Presidential elect
ors for his or her respective state.
He can vote for a list of Republi
can electors, or a list of Democrat
ic electors, or of Socialist Labor or
Prohibitionist or Communist or
Farm-Labor, or any other list that
may appear on the official ballot
If he wants to he can write in a
list of names of Presidential elect
ors that don't appear on the print
ed ballot at all. Any voter who
wants to can vote for a mixed tick
et, including Republican electors,
Democratic electors, and so on. But
he cannot vote direct for President
Perhaps that sounds like school-
book stuff, that every child who has
got as far as the study of the Con
stitution of the United States knows
already. But there is a possibility
that this year it may not be merely
school-book stuff. For that reason
it is interesting to examine the
method by which we choose our
President and Vice-President.
In theory, Presidential electors
are bound to vote for the candi
dates of their respective parties
nominated in the National Conven
tions which are to be held during
the coming summer. The list of
Republican candidates for Presi
dential electors will be headed on
the ballot with the names of the
nominees of the Republican Na
tional Convention, and so likewise
will the Democratic list carry the
names of the Democratic nominees,
and so on. And, of course, there
is a moral obligation on the part of
each Presidential elector to vote
for the candidate's name at the
head of the list on which his name
appears. But no elector Is under
any legal obligation to vote for any
Presidential or Vice - Presidential
In theory, the electors are inde
pendent and entitled to use their
independent individual judgments.
In New York State, for example,
there are forty-five Presidential
electors to be chosen. It has never
happened, but it might happen,
that one or two or three or any
number of these forty-five, although
elected on one of the party tickets,
might decide to vote for the can
didates on one of the other tickets,
or for an independent candidate. If
the Democrats, for example, elect
ed their entire list of Presidential
electors, and twenty-three' of the
forty-five decided between election
day in November and the first Wed
nesday in January that they pre
ferred the Republican candidates
or the Prohibition candidates, they
could turn over the vote of New
York State to the other party, re
gardless of how large a majority
of individual voters had expressed
themselves for a particular candi
date. Nothing like that has ever hap
pened, and nothing like that is at
all likely to happen. The electors
who went contrary to their parties
that way would be forever out of
politics. Nobody would trust them
any more. And the type of men
usually nuominated in state con
ventions as Presidential electors
are a high-minded, honorable class
and altogether unlikely to go con
trary to the clearly expressed man
dates of the voters at the polls.
If anything of the sort ever hap
pens, it would be more likely to oc
cur in some of the states with a
smaller representation in the Elec
Arizona, Delaware, Nevada, New
Mexico and Wyoming have only
three electoral votes each. Idaho,
Montana, New Hampshire, Utah
and Vermont have only four each.
Two or three electors in any one ol
these states might kick over the
traces and change the entire result
of the Presidential election. It does
not depend In any way upon the
number of popular votes cast by
the voters, but does depend upon
the number of Presidential electors
voting for a given candidate.
A President can be, and many
Presidents have been, elected and
seated by a minority of the popu
lar vote. Mt. Cleveland in 1892 got
only 46 per cent of the popular
vote. Mr. Wilson had 42 percent
of the popular vote in 1912 and 49
percent of It in 1916. But those
candidates carried the larger states
with the largest number of elec
toral votes, and what elects the
President is a majority of the total
number of electors.
The electors of each state meet
at their State Capitals on the first
Wednesday in January and record
their votes, which are taken by
messengers to Washington and
counted by the House of Repre
sentatives, which then declares the
candidate having received the
largest number of electoral votes
to be elected Presidnt
If no candidate has a majority of
the electoral votes, however, the
House of Representatives itself has
then the power to elect the Presi
dent, and it doesn't have to choose
from among the party nominees.
but can go outside of them and
elect anybody who is qualified. That
too, has never happened. On the
two or three occasions early in our
history when the election was
thrown into the House of Repre
sentatives, the leading party candi
date was the one eventually chos-

Judge J. M. Hanley of North Da
kota, has started a movement for
independent electoral tickets in as
many states as possible, in the be
lief that there is a great mass of
voters who would under no circum
stances want to support Democrat
ic nominees and who will be op
posed to the reelection of Mr. Hoo
ver, who seems certain to be the
Republican nominee. If such inde
pendent lists of electors can be set
up in strategically located states
and should be elected, there might
be a sufficient number of indepen

either of the major party candi
