Pastor Ilrooklyn Tabernacle
Our   Friends,   Neighbors,   Holy,   Unholy,  Civilized,
fluk'share, lit, August ■—Pastor
Russell of Brooklyn, and now also
:d London, delivered addresses lu
large audiences at tha Qaleshurg
Dhautauqua to-dny. His topics wen-.
"Where aro tho Dead?" and "Tho
Judgment of tho Great White
riirtitie." We report the former.
Gaoh address lasted [nr nearly two
hours, but so deeply Inter sled were
Ihe aucJlei a thai they leemed not
to note the flight  of linn'     il« said:
No other qunstl nultl he of deep-
•r interest   lo thinking   | ne   than
the one now before us "Where Are
:ho Dead?" Our ancestors, our neighbors, our friends, are dtad or dying,
md ourselves with them What will
be our condition when 'be apurk of
life flickers out? 1 have no new
revelation on this subject, I have
merely for my guide wlial is r cog.
nlaed by all Christie ni m the Divine
revelation on ihls subject—the Bible,
I bold that there is no other source
of information comparable tc it.
Before presenting his own findings
an tbe subject, in the Bible, Pastor
Russell reviewed the findings of others—Christian in general. The agnostic view, that then- la uo life beyond the tomb, be could tint entertain. Ha believed that man's organ-
lam, so much higher than that ot the
brute, implies not only an nil-wise
froator. bul His benevolent Intention
(or man's future. He examined th.-
Catholic view, and, while uocordin-i
full liberty to every Catholic to believe what to him seems reasonable
respecting the dead, Pastor Russell
could not agree with Roman Catholic
teachings. He summarised their view
to be that a very saintly tew wen- fit
tor heaven and that they went
thither. He complimented the Justice
nf their intentions, thai a compara*
lively small number of humanity
were worthy of eternal torture.
For his own part, he could not imagine any human being, on account
of any human wvnkness. or depravity,
as meriting endless torture. Tbe
Catholic  view,   that   all   heathen   and
FTactically all Protestant-; and Cat littles go In death to purgatory, lie could
not agree with for two reasons. First,
he finds no Scriptural authority for
such a view, ami secondly, bis mint)
cannot accept tie* thorn/lit ibat an
•ll-wlie, all-just, all-loving and
powerful Creator will torture His
creatures for centuries in any such
manner as Catholics generally believe, and as Dante's great poem,
"Lnferno," so graphically depicts.
Van tor Russell declared that he
was a Protestant, in largo measure
because hi* parents were such. Hut
he declared that while he sees many
truths buth in Protestants and in
Catholic t.-aehings he considers that
the Protestant view respecting the
hereafter of Ihe d ad tie- most diabolical conception to be found on the
face of the earth, the grossest blasphemy against the Divine character
and provision for humanity.. Had
he nothing belter to offer he would
not be addressing In- audience on
the subject.
Perpl-'ked and disconcerted by his
early teachings, he hud, when ri
youth, discarded alt human creeds
and the Bible as well—believing that
the laft:r was the basis for the former. It was a happy day for him when
ha learned that this was a mistake-
when he learned that .he creeds uf
the Dark Ages are diametrically on*
K)«d to tha teachings of God's Word,
dw his Bible has uecome to him a
new book—the moat wonderful book
in tha world. Its teachings he now
aeea to b\ beyond all comparison.
the most logical -tin- only rational
preaentatlop, and a most glorious
one respecting man—explaining bis
put, present and future as prear-
rang*! by a wise, gracious and all-
powerful Creator.
Protestant views respecting the
hereafter are various, but two In
particular represent Proh slant
thought In general- (I) The Calvin-
UUc theory; (S) the Arminiun theory.
Five centuries ago there were no
Protestants—all were Catholics und
believed in three places for the dcHd
—heaven for the saintly few; Purgatory for the general mass of mankind; and hell, everlasltmr torture,
for the incorrigible. Luther and
coadjutors got to studying Ihe Bible,
and, finding nothing there respecting
purgatory and mass for the dead,
they threw these out. Figuratively,
they smashed completely the Idea of
Purgatory. A little later they were
perplexed and said to each other. We
have smashed Purgatory, hut now
what shall we do with all these
thousands of millions who have been
there in our imagination for centuries
—roasting, sissling, and hoping some
day to attain an eternity o( hllss.
The thought of their rsiponilbllltff
In connection with the thousands of
millions blanched their cheeks and
made their hearts quail They !-» Ltd
at each other in terrified bewilderment. Their noble, generuui hearts
led them to %\*sire to put Ihe whole
mass directly Into heawu, but, si
they searched the Scriptures mi th-
subject, they found, as they had a'-
ways believed as Catholics, thi Bible
teaching that only the saintly. Ul*
footstep follower-! id JSSUS, Ihe "over.
comers" of the world, an- til fur ths
Kingdom of Heaven. In despair they
aaid to each other. This leaves nothing (or us  to do  but enlarge  hell
many limes and stuff the entire ni-*»
therein, writing over the doorway.
"Who enters here abundnnt hope.

mailer, quits contrary to their gener

I    Pator Russnll   declared   that Wes-
■ ley und Calvin put exactly the same
saintly lew into h avail, and put all
the remainder into eternal torment,
Hence ii was a mere question between
these two men us to why this wus
so, nnd not us to the fact. Calvin
said, "It is Cod's will and He fnro-
ordained it thus."   Wesley said. "No,
God is love, and love would never do
thus. It was tl1- result of Divine
lack of wisdom in their creation, mil
luck of power to help after their
creation. Hence the fate of the
Pastor Russell said. Them Is a
great mistake. None "f thes- theo-
i rles actisfy your heads and hearts,
| nor mine. The difficulty is that wo
I have been trying to accept the errors
! of the Dark Ages Instead of golug
i clear back to and making our theo-
I logy afresh from the words of Jesus,
I th, Apostles and nronhets. Let us do
> this now and find the honutv of the
| Divine Plan in the Bible, and a glor-
! lous Divine character such as we
I know it should have—far beyond
' human wisdom justice, love nnd
j power. So the Lord says; "As the
i heaven* are higher than the earth,
! so are My ways higher than your
ways and My plans higher than your
i plans."
The Bfbls confirms the ablest find*
I inits of iclsnce when It tells us tbat
1 the dead tire dead and not alive at
! all, anywhere. The Scriptures declare, "The dead know not anything";
"their sous come to honor and they
know it not; they come to dishonor
but they perceive It not of them."
Again    the    Bible    says,   "There    l«
■ neither wisdom nor device nor know],
edce iii the grave (aheol, Ihe Bible
hell) whither thou goest" iKecIcsias-
tes  i!t*4 HI)
Where, my den' friends, i« Die kev
to the whole problem:' Tbe Bible
hell   is  the grave,  ihtol,  hades,   the
- death stale. The salvation which God
lias  provided  is the salvation from
, sin and from death. The hope set
before us in the Gospel is—the resar.
rectton of the dead. If anybody la
dead there can be im resurrection ol
the dead. It is not the body which
dies that God lias promised shall be
resurrected, but the soul.   It wus not
■ Adam's body merely that was pun-
i ished   with   d atli.   but    it   whs    his
soul,  which Involved   the   body   nnd
, every power Adam possessed.   All of
his children have shared  with him
in his fall, in his death,
God's provision (or the salvation of
. mankind   is  that   "As  hy   twin  came
; death (not eternal torment), by a man
. (the man Chrint J ISUI) come's also the
, resurrection of the dead.   For as all
' in Adam die, so nil in Christ shall be
male alive" (I. Corinthians iv, !£!).
Not only do the Scriptures clearly
I set   forth   that  the   wages   of   sin   is
I death and thai thus death passed upon the entire human race (Rinnans v,
] 121, but they also set forth that the
redemption  price   which   Jesus guve
was death—   He poured out His soul
unto death"; He mnde Lis suul au
offering for sin (Isaiah 1111, 10, 12).

will come a resu.rectlon of the dead.

Brilliant Record of the Irish Soldier
In the Service of Great Britain.
The history of Irish soldiers in the
service of Great Britain is a picturesque one, says Tbe London Graphic.
For instance, the Fourth Royal Irish
Dragoon Guards fought in the Peninsula with Wellington, in the heavy
cavalry charge at Baluclava and at
Tel-el-Kebir. The Fifth Royal Irish
Lancers  fought  us  "The  Irish   Dra-
f:0011s" with Marlborough ut Bleu*
leitu, Rainillies, Oudenarde and Mai-
pluquet, winning on Ihe battlefield,
together with the Scots Greys, the
right to wear the Grenadier bearskin.
The Sixth Itiniskilliug Dragoons
fought at Dettingen, took part In the
charge of the Union Brigade at Waterloo, uud added to its fame in the
Heavy Cavalry Brigade charge at
Balaclava. The Higlith Royal Irish
Hussars, raised hy William ill. fought
in Spain under Peterborough in Queen

Vote for Reciprocity,  n larger
market ami t. ({renter Canada.
Reciprocity la not a party issue in
in Saskatchewan. Mr, Huultaln.thc
Conservative leader In tlmt province, t'tillrt the opposition tu the
agreement "a tactical mistake" and
is In favor of freer uml larger
"Reciprocity/'says Ihonnnnuncc-
mi'iit prominently dlnpliyetl before
the C. P. R.oftlcerBinSeallle.'VllI
itift'i-nsi-Camilla lamls 100 por cent."
In that enst' it will be good thing
for thf C. P, IE., which still owns
sutiit- seven million aoros of hunl.
On ovory significant thing about
the reciprocity discussion is that
the Ll be rain arc distributing the
actual agreement by lens of thousands for tl.t1 information of the
electors, wiiorcaa the Conservatives
are careful to do nothing along this
If bogeys wore arguments, tin
anti-rmprncity orators would b
"It is sometimes said the Americans ure going to deplete our resources. What are the tilings covered by this arrangement? They are
the fruits of the soil. What are we
growing them for? To sell them,
Take a man who is currying on a
grocery stoie. Does he feel very
sure when Linstock is depleted?"
The Conservative speakers arc arguing that reciprocity will destroy
the prosperity which our country
now enjoys, that the Americans will
flood our country with their goods
and our own producers will la* driven
into bankruptcy. The same Conservative speakers arc arguing that
Canadian loyalty to the Empire i-
of such a thin, weak nature that
llilder reciprocity, Canada will he
so prosperous by American capital
and energy that they will want t
transfer their allegiance to the United States und lose tlieir loyalty ti
the British Kmpire.
Montreal Daily Witness— Mr
Frlpp in bis speech Thursday night
expressed fears that the adoption
of reciprocity would stay the Influx
of British capital into the Dominion. Docs he not know thut (treat
Britain has £185.000,000 invested
in United States as against only
fi8Ofi.O00.0O0 In Canada? British
capital does not allow sentiment to
interfere with its working. It goes
where it iind*, host employment
and if Canada continues prosperous
na she will under reciprocity, British enpitat will continue to come
here in millions.
Tne Conservative party has ever
made a special boast of its loyalty
to all things British, uml yet it
would npircnr from the statements
of many of the oipononts of tin
party tbat they had but very little
faith in the reality or strength of
that loyalty. To slate that if we increase our market we will lose our
Idontitv Is preposterous. We venture
to say tlmt there is not a business
man in Chilliwack or u farmer
either, lint who would sell all bis
surplus to an American, if lie was
given the opportunity, nud would
not think for u moment that bis
loyalty was lessened to the slightest
degree. We sell n large proportion
of our surplus production to tne
American nnil have had for many
years, and pay for the privilege in
tariff fees, but nre we less loyal as
a result. Canadians pride themsclvt i
on their strength and stability and
our growing importance as a nation,
and yet some or tlm Conservatives
WOltld have us believe that we are
not qualified to do business on a
footing of equality with the Anieri-
nn. We are so far behind and so
asy, that we would ho gobbled up.
S.iimds like trying to frighten an
infant hy telling it the booixw man
would catch It,
Tariff relief is wlmt Cnnada bus
wanted for the pn«t lifty years.
When the terms of tbe pact were
made known in the House last
January, there were few but who
favored its adoption, In summing
up an article on the question at the
time The Toronto News, llm leading Conservative organ in Toronto,
said: "Unquestionably, therefore,
the arrangement will command
strong support front Canadian producers, and, as bus been said, nothing else could have been expected.
Tinier all tho circumstances we
(tho News) recognizo that Washington has offered terms which it is
difficult   ir Cnrtiuln to reject."
Wherever an anti - reciprocity
theory can lie tested by a known
fact, the theory has its tire punctured. Thus anti-reciprocity orators
shriek that is is absurd to sell mu*
our agricultural products to the
United Slates, wh toll exports similar
products. This is the theory- Hero
is the fact that destroys it: Canada
last year, in the ftico of high protective duties, sold agricultural products to tho United Stales to the
value of nineteen million dollars,
which was twice what we sold to all
the rest t>f tb<- world, tlreat Britain
excepted, The question for sensible
people to ask is, whether u market
winch uas so valuable Under u
handicap of high protection is worth
having with the duties removed; or
shall we declare that, although wo
arc spending millions every year in
tin attempt to Iind new markets
overseas, we do not want this market
at our doors? Who can doubt what
the judgment will bu?
Sir, Wilfrid Laurler, in an address to the Canadian people says.
To the Canadian People:— At
all times, during the last forty
years, it has been the constant
effort of all political parties in
Canada to make with the United
States an arrangement for the Iree
exchange of natural products between the two countries. In 1864
Lord Klgin, on behalf of Canada
and the Maritime provinces, negotiated with the United States a treaty
for that purpose, which lasted
until I860 and whicli, within the
memory of many still alive, was of
great advantage. Ever since the
termination of that treaty all public
men of any prominence in Canada,
whatever their differences on other
questions, have been unanimous in
an attempt to again secure this fre
exchange of nuturul products. Nor
is this tube wondered at, seeing
that in the industries tif agriculture,
fisheries, lumbering ami mining
Canada possesses advantages not
enjoyed by any other country on
earth, nnd thut upon markets
secured for the products of these
industries depends the growth of
our manufacturing und commercial
interests, nnd tbe prosperity of all
classes in the Dominion. Ami the
latest attempt of the Conservative
party to tbat end was made by Sir.
John Macdnnald himself, who
dissolved parliament in 1801, for
the purpose of submitting to the
electorate of Canada the expediency
of his approaching again the American authorities fur a renewal of the
treaty of 1854.
Tn 189:1 the intention to obtain
reciprocity with the United, Slates
as soon as possible was made n
prominent feature of the platform
of the Liberal party upon wbid.it
attained power in 1800. After the
present govermeiit took office it re-
will uppi
very prii
newed in vain this offer to the
United States but meeting with no
response we declared that nn further overtures of this nature would
be made by Canada. Within the
last twelve mouths Ibe president of
the United States sent to Ottnwa
two Commissioners from Washing*
tot. for the purpose of opening
negotiations looking toward tho
lowering of the tnriff barriers whicli
have hitherto stood in the way of
freer exchange of commodities between Camilla und United Slates.
These negotiations in January lust
culminated in nn ngreemenl between the two governments by
which the duties of each country
on such products might bo lowered
or altogothor removed. This agreement was strenuously resisted in
the United States by various interests, on the alleged ground that
it was all to the advantage of Canada, and to ihe detriment of Ll.o
other country, but the view that il
was mutually advantageous lo IhjUi
countries dually prevailed in Congress and the agreement stands to*
lay as an offer by the United States
to Canada of that very measure of
reciprocity which, for more I bun
forty years, has engaged lh truest
id i stun! effort oft-very leading
listen uud statesman.
Tho present Conservative party iu
ll'liauieill Booms absolutely In re
vets.- tin- life long policy nf its greal
leader in tin- past, declaring (bat it
i- in ib<- bitter, end tl..'
Iplo enunciated by both
Sir John Mac.lotiald and Sir
John Thompson iu the last election
addresses upon which each of these
statesmen ever appealed to the Canadian peopln. Not content to debate this pnipor-ilioi. upon its merits the Conservative party in the
House of Commons has adopted a
system of organized nnd avowed
obstruction to prevent any vote be-l
ing taken in parliament liy which
the opinion of your representatives!
there could be expressed.
The issue, my fellow countrymen, I* In your hands, :ind to your
decision His Majesty's government
in Canada are well content to leave
it. It has been alleged hy opposition that this agreement if consummated would weaken the Imperial
connection with the mother country, and finally bring the annexation of Canada to the United
States. It is Impossible to treat
such un argument with any kind of
respect, if, indeed, it can lie dignified with (he i.nine of argument,
for if it has any meaning, its meaning is that tho people of Canada
would be seduced from their allegiance by the prosperity to follow
the larger flow of natural products
from this country to the other. Indeed the very reverse would he the
natural consequence, for ihe experience of all ages abundantly justifies
the contention that trade is ever the
most potent agency of peace, amity
uml mutual respect between nations. Nor is that all; this agreement, which in no way impairs our
fiscal policy, which still muintnins
nt the top must the fecund principle
of British preference, this agreement by opening new uveiiues of
trade hitherto closed would fulber
improve the friendly relations which
. now happily exist between this
country and the mother country oil
; (he oue  band,  and the  American
! republic on the other hand, and
which, it is hoped, may, at no distant day, evonlually tend to eventuate Into a general treaty of arbitration, the effect of which would Into remove forever all possibilities of
war between the great   Empire of
; which we are proud to form a part,
and the great nation,  which we nre
I proud to have as neighbors.

Hi* Worship   Iho   Mayor   and
Council of   tho City of Cliilliwnck.
He   tTic Coroner's inquest upon
tliedunth of Olivo Irene Kipp.
The FJro, Water nud Light Committee i« of opinion that tho enn-
siiro passed by the jury nt the Baid
inquest, assorting negligence mi tho
part of the city Council, is false
nud malicious, and calculated In
injure the Interests nf tho City,
Purthor, that bud the jury taken
such interest ns tbeiractimi Implies,
they would hnve been tuvitre that
the hydrant iu use at the llro, wm
on the nearest water main to the
scene of the fire; nlso lliu jury
ullght to have been aware tlmt the
City Council has been very active
in urging upon tho Elk Creek Waller Co., the necessity for more and
| belter water mains; the jury should
| likewise nave known Hint the said
Waterworks Co., lias bud fur
several weeks past, and still has, n
force of men ongngod in the im-
pnivt'iiieut of the system; nlso that
a number of new hydrants have
b.vii recently installed, and that
more aro ordered.
Tbe jury is also fully aware that
boforo the alarm of lire was sent in,
tbobnril was fully ablaze, and that
presumably the little child was even
then past being saved; the jury
should nlso have bren awnre of the
fact that when the call was sent to
the Fire Hall, it was immediately
responded to, ami the brigade was
nl the scene of lire within three CI)
minutes of the call being sent in.
The water pressure nt this time was
seventy (70) poflnds to the square
inch, and though nut sn strong as
wc wish, the brigade did excellent
work nevertheless, in   saving  the
house, when its closeness to the
burning barn is considered, ami the
fact Uml the barn was in a blaze,
from floor lo roof boforo litis or any
other brigade could have been on
the ground.
We consider thai tho brigade is
especially deserving of commendation for having saved the house
and for Its prompt response In tho
call imulo upon it. It is nlso our
earnest wish to co-operate wiih Hie
Fire Itrigadc in every way possible,
for thuatlalnmoiitof good lire protection.
In our   opinion,   tho   jury   very
niueh   execded   its   jurisdiction iu
malting such statements as it did.

A Kaiimkii.
Mr. Kdltor—1 have no brief from
Mr. John Oliver; ho does not know
of my existence, lint   if occurs to
me  thai while this election will bo
pou a straight issue for or against
roolproeity   thoro   will   ho   other
lattcrfl introduced by tho Incoming
(iovcrniiicnt of givat concern to
farmers and many more might be
introduced if we had a competent
farmer lo prcsont them, which only
fanners realize the importance of.
For instance much of the taxes paid
by farmers is spent on city improvements. Agriculture is tho foundation, the backbone of the prosperity
uft he city. If we could hnve n square
deal, a fair share of the fruits of our
labour spent upon our mads, education, and river protection, we should
live in comparative luxury,but there
is an everlasting drain upon the
fanning community that goes to the
heiielit of everyone else. If wo had
a strong representation we could get
cheaper Implements.   Wu pay the
same price whether our impleii o Is
are American orCaundian inuiann-
lacture. If tho fioverumont does not
get the duty the inanufneturor does,
so what is the difference lo the
farmer; he has the ex Ira tax tn pay.
Iu the States the railways supply
cars especially adapted to shipping
fruit to protect it irom heat and
colli and ship it with the least
possible delay; but we shall have
tho same conditions wc have now,
a hundred yeais hence, unless we
I'muI aggressive moil to urge it.  Pair
conditions and fair rates i-.ro oh important as reciprocity. Tne H. C.
telephone charges twice what it
should for its mlserablo It ing distance
service. We can get redress from
this From the Railway Commission
if wo will, but who is to do it
for us? The Government bus never
seen ihe risk wc run every year from
river encroach incuts, British Columbia should send a delegation to
Ottawa that would use diplomacy
and create a sympathetic interest
instead of antagonizingovoryoiie it
approaches. The farmer has more
money invested ami expends more
energy than any other branch the
community and has the least representation, lie is led by the nose by
party and press often against his
own interests. He is made a beast
ot burden; if he is notdocilo enough
they befool him by one trick or another until he is.    Yours,

on a smalt wagon to ine point nearest
the oiraiitleU vessel. To aid them iu
their work at tiigtit a "wreck-light,"
ia provided. This is composed ot u
iiutniii-r tit small boxes similar to con-
deiiaed in.Ik tins containing tnllam-
niuble material, tne boxes being lightly (tuteued to each other end to end.
'lliu wiiule is liuiig up and lighted

When ready for tiring, however, the
lid   uf  the   box   is   taki ll  off,   and  tbe
pltu withdrawn, leaving the hue in a

The rocket is now carefully pointed
towards the wreck, allowance being
made for wind, distance, eu.-.; then s

flies off on its errand uf mercy, currying the line.
If tiie rocket is well placed it will
curry one end of the line across tbe

uf rope running through u block, the
ends t,i tin- rope being joined together

claimed that wben fresh eggs are
placed In cold storage tbe eggs are

believed that tiy electrocuting the eggs
