Eleven years passed and again I felt compelled to offei
my resignation. The trouble now was not one of doctrint
or discipline. It was the much more serious question oi
unorthodoxy in economics and politics. This time my re*
signation was accepted without protest.
It was as follows:—
"Gibson's Landing, B.C.,
June 8th, 1918
"Rev, A. H. Smith,
"President Manitoba Conference,
"Methodist Church,
"Winnipeg, Man.
Dear Mr. Smith:—
"After serious consideration I have decided that
I should resign from the ministry of the Methodist
Church. It is perhaps, due both to the conference and
to myself that I state, at least in outline, the considerations that have led me to take this action.
"Within a short time after my ordination I was
much troubled because my beliefs were not those that
were commonly held and preached. The implications
of the newer theological teaching that I had received
during my B.D. course and in post-graduate work at
Oxford revealed themselves with growing clearness and
carried me far from the old orthodox position.
"In 1902 I came to conference with my resignation in my pocket, but the urgent advice of the president and others of the senior ministers persuaded me
to defer action. I accepted an invitation to become
junior minister at Grace Church and for four years
devoted myself largely to the practical activities of a
large down-town church.
"Ill-health made necessary a year without a station. This gave me an opportunity of getting out of a
routine and seeing things in a somewhat truer perspective. While in Palestine I decided that, come what
might, I must be true to my convictions of truth. It
seemed to me that in the church, I was in a false position. As a minister I was supposed to believe and to
teach doctrines which either I had ceased to believe or
. which expressed very inadequately my real beliefs.
I carefully prepared a statement of my position and
sent it with my resignation to the conference of 1907.
A special committe appointed to confer with me reported that in their judgment my beliefs were sufficiently
in harmony with Methodist standards to make my
resignation unnecessary, and recommended that it be
not accepted. The confernce, without dissent, accepted the recommnedation.
"What could I do? Left intellectually free, I
gratefully accepted the renewed opportunity for service. For six years, as superintendent of All People's
Mission, I threw myself heartily into all kinds of
social service work. Encouraged by my own experience, I thought that the church was awakening to
modern needs and was preparing, if slowly, for her
new tasks.
"But as years went by certain disquieting conclusions gradually took form. I began to see that the
organized church had become a great institution with
institutional aims and ambitions. With the existence
of a number of denominations, this meant keen rivalry.
In many cases the interests of the community were
made subservient to the interests of the church. Further, the church, as many other institutions, was becoming increasingly commercialized. This meant the
control of the policies of the church by men of wealth,
and in many cases, the temptation for the minister to
become financial agent rather than a moral and spiritual leader. It meant, also, that anything like a radical
programme of social reforms became in practice almost
impossible. In my own particular work among the
immigrant peoples I felt that I, at least, could give more
effective service outside denominational lines. Intellectual freedom was not sufficient—I must be free to
"For three years I acted as secretary of the
Canadian Welfare League and for one year as director
of the Bureau of Social Research of the governments
of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. Last year,
owing to the closing of the bureau, and another breakdown in health, I came to British Columbia. At the
suggestion of one of the ministers and by courtesy of
the B.C. Conference, I was appointed "supply" of a
little coast" mission field. Here I have again had the
opportunity of trying out church work and learning in

Conducted   by  W.   H.   DONALDSON,   Secretary   Federated   Seafarers  of
IS the S.S. City of Vancouver arrived at New Westmins-
er on Saturday last after a trip
o the Orient, tlie management
irdered the company-s agents to sn-
mre a Chinese crew to displace
:he white seamen on the deck department of the vessel.
The "Vancouver" was built by
J. J. Coughlan of this city, and ls
owned and operated by that firm.
The agents are the Canadian
American Shipping Co., 801 Hastings St. W., Vancouver. An appeal on behalf of tto white unemployed seamen has been qent
to the Coughlan firm, explaining
that many veterans of the last war
are unable to secure employment,
and that It was unnecessary to displace the white sailors already on
the ship. During the war the
Couglhlan Co. inserted large advertisements in tho dally press
asking the workers to be loyal to
the "king and country" (and work
at the Coughlan shipyards) and
now they are subjecting those who
"did their bit" to a dose ot moneybag patriotism by giving preference to coolie labor.
Wm. Hayes, a fireman »-ho was
last employed by the C.G.M.M., is
at (iresent in the Western Association for the Blind, at 2213 Albert
street. He has worked on quite
a number ot ships on the Coast,
mostly C. G. M. M. vessels, and
unfortunately when he met with
the accident he did not think it
would mean the loss of his eyesight. Although it Is tlle result of
an accident yet there appears to
be no possibility of hlm securing
compensation, as It Is stated to be
caused by a catyract. Hayes states
he Is being treated extra good at
the. Institution, and is to be operated on in a few weeks. He
states he does not want any of his
relatives to know of his condition
until after the operation, and in
the meantime he is in need cf such
comforts as a walking stick, shaving utensils, shoes, etc. Thc organiiation supplies hlm ■ with tobacco, etc., and is striving to see
that he does not want for any comforts.
The committee recommends that
a voluntary subscription be taken
up to ensure that one of those who
was always ready to help others
Hand Made Loggers' and
Seamen's Boota

does not have to want for anything
himself. The Iobs of eyesight Is
a terrible affliction, and Brother
Hayes would appreciate a visit
from some of his former shipmates,
as although he is being well treated in the institution where he Is
yet a visit from his former comrades Would help to cheer him up.
He is hopeful of recovering his
sight, but may hnve to wear dark
glasses afterwards.
Let tls get together and do what
we can to aid one ot ourselves who
is suffering from one of the greatest handicaps a human being can
suffer from. Only those members
who can afford it will be asked to
contribute to this very deserving
case. When the committee approaches you and you can spare
anything do what you can to set a
good example to others. Brother
Hayes Is known on the waterfront
as Geordle Hayes.
The progress made by thc organization in the month of March
exceeded expectations. We have
not yet received a reply from
either the Marine Engineers' Association or the Canadian Merchant Service Guild, but expect
that thoy wlll deal with our letters
at their respective meetings.
Quite a number of seamen in tha
deck department of the old G.T.P.
are still unorganized, and seem unable to recognize the fact that they
should be organized. Of course
there are a few who have been
members, and just because they
have not had the privilege ot shipping from headquarters when thoy
desired to do so they have become
discouraged and are now acting in
n manner detrimental to the interests of other seafarers, who are
willing to organize and seek the
best possible conditions.
Hospital Notes
Brother Watton ls improving rapidly at the Genernl Hospital.
Brothers Bell, Etcliells, Bye and
McKinnon are all doing well at St.
Paul's, and expect to be around the
headquarters soon.

the principal coal fields of tho
globe, working ln each one except
In Japan.
"I could not work In the Japanese mines because of the racial
feelings," Hapgood tells The Federated Press. "All the white business and professional men in the
Orient would have felt themselves
humiliated If a fellow white "matt
had performed actual manual labor
along with yellow-skinned work*
ers. It would have another attack
on the jealously cherished principle of white superiority in the
East. **■
"Russian conditions were the
best I saw. I worked ln the Kuzbas mines in Siberia. They are
about as advanced in machine mining as most European mines, but
far behind American pits. They
have increased produced a great
deal per capita by better tools ond
haulage. Hours and relation between management and worker are
best In Russin, better than In
America or anywhere else.'"

Even Bosses Object
to Police Brutality
CHICAGO—While police In Passaic are clubbing textile strikers,
running down women and children
with motorcycles and showering
gas and tear bombs on the workers, the Chicago Journal of Commerce waxes indignant. It editorializes in one of its Issues as follows;
"We do not know whether the
managers of the textile mills approve ot such tactics. If they do
they are hopeless. Idiotic brutality such as this Passalc-Cllfton performance Is the best possible Inducement for radicalism."

The commission recommends that
the subsidy which maintained the
status quo since August 1925 be

(By A Jubilee Reader)
THE ahove words have heen ad-
. vortlsed a great deal recently,
and those of us who have seen the
play will remember the last words
of Sydney Garton: "Tis a far better thing I do than I have yet
done!" I think many of us could
use those words right now instead
of waiting and watching, If wo
would only desire to do so. No
matter where we go we can see on
every hand the Inequalities and Inefficiency of the present syBtem.
Many of us, If we would unburden
ourselves of that little narrowness
and seek to develop the Individuality that makes for a fuller life,
would be accomplishing something
that would he a lasting benefit.
When one reads of the "Grain
Flowing Westward," and on the
other side how man, ln this, the
highest form ot civilization, is begging for bread, does It not suggest
that something ls wrong when we
flnd luxury on one hnnd and poverty
on the other Is there not something wrong when we find poor
people's tables wasted away to not
even a crust whilst millions toil to
make the already wealthy still
Labor says "Yes," and adds "It's
Worth the finding out." When Important questions of child life,
motherhood, old nge pensions, unemployment, and immigration are
played with by our politicians, is It
not  time  we   got   together   more
unitedly and placed these matters
where they belong? Yes, "The only
way" is for us to link ourselves together.
The opportunity for acquiring
this knowledge is right in our midst.
Every Wednesday evening the members of tbe Independent Labor
Party meet ln their hall at Jubilee,
when these questions are given
serious consideration. It ls open
to everybody who desires to bring
about a system of equality of opportunity for all. The members of
the branch are your neighbours,
whose interests are your interests,
bnt who mean by personal effort and
sacrifice to make this, and other
countries through their international relationships, a better place
for those who are here and for
those who are to come.
You will lind that "The Only
Way" Is through our efforts, and an
understanding of the workers' position.
