AT THK CHURCH.
There watt a large attendance at
the church, the Masonn occupying
the centre. The choral selections
were excellent and well rendered by
the choir.
Rev. R. Hughes, Pastor, occupied
the pulpit, and preached the following sermon.
"And Davtd set Masons to hew
wrought stones to build the House
of God."
I.   Chronicles,   22:2.
It is Kenernlly admitted 1 believe,
that the Fraternity which we welcome in our midst this morning,
tnkes not only its name, but many
of its lofty principles from the old
master builders who lived many
centuries ago, and to whom this
text makes speeial reference. It is
very fitting therefore, on such an
occasion as this, that we should
observe some of the lessons which
this old-world picture ns represented
in this passage of scripture suggests
to us.
I shall not presume upon the intelligence of the Mnsonic body by trying to teach them anything ubout
their own order; it will be sufficient
for me to say thnt during the last
week I have had the pleasure of examining several works upon the fraternity, and have just road enough
to know that there is a very gres-t
deal more to be known. I have
been impressed with the deep religious vein of the constitution, s-nd
the high ethical code which is set
before the members. Without indulging in any platitudes, it appears to me, that the Mason who
lit living up to the standard as laid
down, and duly required, in the
charges, is living a consistent
christian life, and fulfiling both the
law and   the     prophets. If Free-
hiasouary rests upon the solid foundation of practical social and moral
virtue—if the bible be commended us
worthy of the most serious contemplation and regard—If duty to God
and our neighbor, and benevolence
und charity be all required from
those who enjoy the Masonic franchise, then, this order should have
the sympathy and respect from all
kinds a-nd conditions of men, aad
in-so-far as these high ideals are
fully carried out, in-so-far wil! success and prosperity rest upon this
institution.
And now let me return more directly to the text before us. "And
David set Masons to hew wrought
stones to build the House of God."
Notice tlrst: "THE DIGNITY OF
LABOR." A few yenrs ago, and Indeed I fear it still exists—It was
the custom to distinguish the idle
rich from the toilers In the old
country, by culling the latter
"working men", Happily, in this
great and free country of ours, generally speaking, we all work, lt is
an unwritten law, a latent fact iu
the consciousness of the race, running hot ln the blood of men, ratified by science aud natural law, that
all men should work; all contribute
to the commonwealth; all subscribe
to the fund of social happiness hy
giving ourselves willingly to the
forgo, the mill, the loom, tho
mart, uiul there, in the common
round und trivial tusk, odor our
hest self for our fellows and out-
God. It Is true that, our work Is
sometimes beset with difficulties, it
is irksome, monotonous, repelling;
but the way in which we bravely
(ace it denotes the streught of our
character, uiul it rough place along
the road of life has often called
forth from men those storllng qualities of heroism, which otherwise
would hnve laid dormant. Disap
pointments are sometimes His Ap
pointiuents. I have suid that science
and natural law prove the dignity
of labor. Who are they who enjoy
life, their food, their rest, their
home, their loved ones? Is it not
those who toil, who return at the
close of day with a sense of well
earned repose? Something has been
attempted, something done, and
upon such rest tbe benediction of
God and man. It Ih equally true
tbat often In these strenuous days
men are overworked, and that they
have no time to enjoy the pleasures
which are legitimately theirs. I hope
we are rapidly approaching the time
when we shall he saved from tha
curse and craving of tho inordinate
love of money. This passion causes
men to ovor work themselves, and
consequently the commonwealth has
to suffer for It as well as the individual. This however does not nl-
fect the principle of labor, and
wben we remember that our blessed
Lord HiniHoif wore the carpenter's
apron, we should ever bo ready to
assume the responsibilities that life
lays upon us all.
Notice now secondly, the qiimllty
of Labor, here spoken of. The Masons were required to hew wrought
stones; this at once suggests skill.
The world not only needs our work,
but It needs the hest we are able to
give it. No mnn enn really he successful unless he    puts   himself  Into
his alloted task. He may work with
his hands, hut thut is not enough;
he must work with his heart, his
soul must express itself; his work
must, to a reasonable extent, take
possession ot him if be is to taste
the joys of success. All history
bears testimony tt) this truth.
Stephenson gave tis tbe steam engine, Morse the telegraph, Bell the
telephone, Kdison the electric light
and phonograph, Field the cable,
and Marconi a-crtal telegraphy. All
these were indeed, hewers of stone
wrought stone, that is, in a figure
ol  speech.
Vou will remember how they were
discouraged by the cowards of their
time. Stephenson was told that he
would set the country atlre with the
sparks of his engine, und the farmers were prepared to set upon him
with their hay forks and forcibly
prevent him from running his "snorting devil" as they called it; Morse
was accounted to lie a cracked
brain; and Field was laughed at
and made bankrupt by his determination to get the two nations linked
by the electric wire; and even Kdison und Marconi have had their obstacles to overcome.
But the quality of a man's work
will triumph nt last. The world
likes "No. 1 Hard" and ever respects
it. Those who hew their portion of
wrought stone in the workshop of
life to the very hest of their ability
are God's aristocrats; we have
wrongly interpreted this word, and
often concluded thut the aristocracy
of our hind consisted of those who
were horn of titled or distinguished
parentage, hut the Greek, word
means the "best strength" und therefore those who are giving their best,
whether in brawn or brains to the
world have n fuller title than nny
ithers to this appellation.
A little more than a year ago, I
stood ia Colonye cathedral in Rhenish Prussln; this beautiful city 'ins
sifciiiticunt interest for every well-
read mason. I have no doubt, because of the old documents relating
to the craft which are still to be
seen there; but cbietly for the splendid specimens of masonry which
this, one of the finest cathedrals of
Europe presents. I shall never forget the thrill of pleasure which ran
through me ns I looked upon the
slender columns, the flowing traceries, the entublntures and tapester-
ies of stone, the wonderful pinnacles and flying buttresses nnd the
general symmetrical design. How
true it is that all good and well executed work is a benediction to those
who do it and to those who look
upon it; and still further it may be
said, that as we endeavor to do
our best in whatever circle of life we
move in, our characters take on a
deeper dignity, and all the noblest
traits are brought forth and developed.
You have no doubt heard the story
of the poor sculptor of Paris who
was finishing a beautiful piece of
work upon which he luul labored for
a long time. It was a cold night,
and thu old man awoke. Ue was
afraid iho oool air would freeze tbe
dump dav of his slutue. uud so he arose
anil look oil smite of the scanty bed-
clothes and wrapped them around hie
beloved work. In tho morning, the
fulthful worker wus found upon his bed
cold In death, but lhe great work for
which be bad given his life, remained
a* un eloquent testimony to his skill
ami persevtv unoe.
Thirdly, l want you to notloe; THE
OBJECT OP LABOR us set forth iu
this text before us. ''And David set
masons to hew wrought stones to build
the house of God." We learn from
this I think, that our work should tend
in this direction to glorify God, In
the very admirable- charge whloh I understand Is given to newly Initiated
candidates of thu masonic body, this
feature is especially dwelt upon In tbe
words:—"Enabling you to exert those
talents wherewith God has blent you,
88 well le Ills glory a* to the welfare of
your fellow creatures."
There in certainly no higher ideal for
unv man to plueu before him - the glory
of God aud thu lasting lhh»1 of Ms
follows. Wo do well to keep before us
ia these commercial duy* competitive
iluys strenuous days, thut the sole
objeel of life for the wise man ii not
mere money-getting; If he gives tho
WOrUI liis best, he will uot be likely to
Want for the uei-unsllles of life, Mr,
lliiskin puis the ouse very well when
he says iu hll excellent article on work;
The doe tri no of "every man for himself" I air. glad to say oan have no
room lu a loyal masonn heart, for
"benevolence aud charity"' are looked
Upon as ornaments of the order, and
should characterise every man who
wishes to taste of Ibe true sweets of
life. It Is tbe justifiable boast of the
order I believe, that a destitute and
worthy mason may tint) In evorj clime
a brother, and in every land u homo."
Thu woll known symbol of the square
and compast*es also suggests that man's
labor should glorify God Inasmuch as
they represent morality, truthfulness
and honesi.y. This Is also borne out by
the jewels of the Senior Grand Warden
and the Junior Grand Warden,—Tbo
level aud plumb rule. Balance, uprightness, aud keenly sensitised turn*
science are thus all symbolised. Our
faces must be set- against all forms of
evil.     Wu must  he unafraid,
I think therefore we may Itnd as un
application from thu foregoing remarks
upon the text before um, that, we should
first of all recognize tbe privilege und
dignity of labor; thut we should all
strive to put our hesl Into our work day
by day, und that above all, wa should
seek to cultivate the altruist le sp'rlt of
living1 for others end in tins way bringing glory to God, The true christian
does not merely love those uf hi* own
community, ibe true muson dues not
nioroly sympathise with those of his
order, hul hi? heart, and the true
christian's heart, Is ever open to tbe
needy, ami his band Is ever Bt re tubed
out to help, Surely ibis is hewing
wrought -tone for the houso of God,
permanently building up our characters
developing the highest uml the best
within ns. ihat at lust we may be accounted woiihy in pass from the square
of this mortality, to the compasses of
the eternal circle of God. With no
"Tiler" to question our right or entry,
i close witli ihis exhortiulon: Let us
ull bu sincere. If in my pro fust lou my
religiim is in niece outwardness, mere
shew and ritual, merely an artificial
position iu order io cnrii my bread, bow
well I merit your condemnation, und
the coutempt of thu world? If loo your
order is but superficial and spectacular,
and you do not earnestly try to follow
out the high Ideals of your constitution
then you also merit- tiie contempt of
your fellows, und youi- iullnence will
soon decay, Hut if we all by lhe help
of God endeavor to hew our portion of
wrought stone for His glory and the
uplift of those about Uo, wu shall
realize the truth of thu.se beautiful
words of Philip .lames Bailey:
We live in deeds, not yenrs,
in thoughts, not breaths;
In feelings, noi in figures on a dial.
Wu should count time by heartthrobs.    He most lives
Who thinks niot>t, feels the uobLst.

An auger hole Is made through thi
broken branch and the uninjured part

The issue between the experienced
and inexperienced, between the tried
and uncertain, and the trusted p ll
tlcian, was brought Into the lime
light .it Vernon, when fifty machine
ilnts nominated Duncan Ross as a
candidate * - represent Yale Cariboo
En the House of Commons The
electors ol Yale-Cariboo have a right
to know how and by whom
were the solid fifty elected, or appointed as delegates to the Vernon
convention. Mr Ross no doubt
fancies thnt he can work faithfully
In the paths pointed out by the Laurier machine The electors realize
that -Mr Ross cannot serve two masters, and when the interests of hit-
constituents clash with the .Japanese
interests nt the Laurier administrn
lion, his duty is to serve those
whom he represents, and who elected him, hence he should resist the
demands of party fealty ns put forth
by  the  machine ut  Ottawa.

There are more Americans in
British Columbia than in any other

It is estimated that in the next
ten years two million Americans
will seek homes in tbe Canadian
Northwest. The  possible   political
etlect of this great shifting of population from the United States t<

by political lenders, nnd they are
generally of the opinion that nci
radical action is likely to he advocated by the American-Canadians.

it is sad beyond expression to
think of the condition of the corruption that has been begotten and fostered by the machine Grits of Yale-
Cariboo. In the nomination of Bun-
can Boss the conditions under which
the nomination was made were such
is to warrant open charges of unblushing wrongdoing. The flippant
way In which these serious climes
are done, and then dismissed by
public men, and the careless way in
which they are treated in the party
press, are signs that iniquity is
wrought in the land, ami that the
power that is behind the Ottawa
machine are   determined    to have it

SATURDAY, MAY
PATRONAGE AT OTTAWA.
There wns a Royal Commission appointed in 1892 to consider the condition
of ihe civil service. In the Report of
that dat" tlie Commissioners snid that
public sentiment In Canada might not
be ripe for open competition generally
and the elimination altogether of
political considerations in making appointments. Nevertheless they held
that if their recommendations were
carried out the public service would bo
better for the change. The Commissioners of 1908 quote this statement of
their predecessors, and express regret
that these hopes have not been realized.
The Civil Servloej*Act has been-so
amended, re-amended ami whittled dowu that the publlo service has
fallen back during the last fifteen years,
Mr. Courtney and his colleagues do not
blame either of'the politieul parties In
particular. "It is the political element
In the Act," they sav, "which has become more appressive and whioh Ims
steadily tended to deteriorate the public service." Prosperity bus taken tlie
more able men Into other, vocations,
while Inefficient and * inferior- met.
through politieul and other means,
havo been brought^into the service, to
the detriment of the busiuess of the
State.
Complaint is mado by tlie Commission
of the Inelastic nature of'the'civil service classification. In one Department
x\ chief clerk may have work of the most
Intricate and technical character, while
in another the chief clerk may be doling
out stationery. The classification in
grades tends to bury individualities,
while, on the contrary, the principle
should never be lostsightof that promotion antl pay should depend on individual
merit.
The advance in tlie cost of living has
made it imperative. In tho opinion of
the Commissioners, to improve the salaries in the civil service. No Deputy
Minister should receive less than $5,000
a year, and the salaries of all other officials should be adjusted according to
tlie ability or efficiency of each, and
not according to a rigid, unresponsive
wage scale. In many cases under the
present system promotions have been
forced on the Departments by.politlolal
Influence, and. ns a rule, for other
causes than the necessities of the scr
vice. Certainly there is need'here for
comprehensive reform, as the Commissioners constantly and vigorously point
out.
Indeed, In nearly every page of the
Report the evils of political patronage
are made plain. Here is one example:
'in many cases officials whose-political
Influence is strong seem to have the
idea that their services are altogether
beyond the control of the higher officials, that except for observance of
office hours their country or their chief
is of no consideration." At the same
time the Commissioners are esretul to
mention that the majority of the officials
are possessed of proper training, and
anxious to givOatheir best sorvIcoBJ to
the interests of tin-State. But yet in
many of the Departments the work
might be better done. __^,
QThls sambquestlon of political 'pjttrpn-
age has a serious ell'eet on the general
expenditure of public money. Large
sums have been spent for supplies
bought from those on the Patronage
List at retail rates. For this reason
the Commissioners believe that there
should be a change in the manner of
voting supplies by Parliament. In Britain the I'ublic Accounts Committee
consists of only fifteen members. The
chairman is a member of the Opposition, aud the Committee reviews the
whole expenditure of the country us reported to Parliament by the Auditor-
General. If au Kslimates Committee
were appointed by the Canadian Parliament to examine the estimates before
ihey were passed upon by the Home,
calling Tor persons and papers, if n«ivs-
stiry. much extravagance might be prevented.
The Commini-ssioners. in poiuiingoul
the vigorous way in which the  British
Public Accounts Committee Inquires
into the expenditure, cite the caso or a
military officer who transferred the
credit balance of one vote to meet tin
delleit on niinlher, The Committee
considered that lie liml a distorted view
of In- responsibilities and his duly.
This paragraph in the Keport will  lit
read with Interest by Mr, Brodour, who
did some juggling of this kind in providing for his expeuses to the Imperial
Conference,
