SERVICE OF
Rev.  W. Elliott Address Large
Gathering in Cumberland
Hall.
The patriotic prayer service in
Cumberland' Hall last Tuesday
evening was largely attended, and
a very earnest spirit of devotional longing and petition pervaded
the assembly. Dr. MacNaughton
filled his post as chairman in a
very happy manner. Addresses
were given by him and the Rev.
Wm. Elliott, and the audience
was led in most appropriate and
fervent prayers by the Revs.
James Hood and C. A. de Vere
White. The program, including
a special prayer for such services
by the Anglican Archbishop, and
a number of suitable hymns, was
prepared by the three local ministers. A debt of gratitude is
due, from all concerned, to the
proprietor of the Cumberland
Hall for the free use and lighting
of it for the service; to Dr. MacNaughton for his services and
excellent address, and to the
united choir for leading in the
singing. Mr. Elliott spoke substantially as follows:
"We are here tonight, not particularly to make and hear addresses, but to pray—to pray to
God on certain lines snggested
by the present war.
"What is war? We are all
familiar with Gen. Sherman's declaration that 'War is Hell.'
When the great Wellington
walked over the field of battle
after Waterloo was won, he shed
tears of deep grief over what he
saw. What tears would he not
hive shed had he gone over the
battlegrounds of a campaign of
the extent and enormity of the
present one! I take my stand on
this: that war is wholesale murder, as truly so as any murder
can be. When two men quarrel
and one in his anger kills his fellow he is smitten, usually, with
a remorse which he never outlives, and the community can
never easily forget it either. But
that is only one man killed and,
it may be, quite unintentional.
The parallel of war is rather that
of the duel which has often been
fo'.ight between two men on some
alleged question of honor or some
thing less worthy, and there is a
chance that two lives may be
-wickedly sacrificed. That is fearful. But, if so, how unspeakably
horrible the mowing down of
thousands and tens of thousands
as now on the battlefields, within
a few days or hours! And in
every war some ruler or rulers,
some person or persons, are responsible, and God, in His own
good time, call them Ailly to account.
"What is this war? The'Call,'
from the heads of five Protestant
, churches, and which has brought
us together, speaks of it as a
"European crisis.' Ah, I tell you,
it is a world crisis. The nations
and  peoples  of the  earth  are
i bound together, and in close
neighborhood to one another, to-
I day as never before.   We cannot
j keep aloof from one another.
Remember that dark men and
brown men and white men are all
fighting together in this campaign, and that 1000 Thibetans,
a few days ago, offered to fight
■ with the Allies. Thibetans! into
the capital of whose sealed-up
country—the last country in the
world so sealed up—the British
only as yesterday virtually forced
their way, and yet ..they offer to
the Allies 1000 men! Also, that:
just now from Rio Janeiro, Brazil, —from South America, counted
one of the least known and least
progressive of the continents,—
from this unthought-of, far-away
place comes the suggestion that
the American republics all join
together to try to bring peace
between the combatants! The
whole round earth feels the thrill
and horror of this war. Awful is
the responsibility of those who
have fomented and begun it.
"Met for prayer, as we are on
this occasion, I am not going to
try to fix the responsibility. But
responsibility there certainly is.
Some ruler or rulers, some person or persons, must be either
seeking revenge, or grasping
after territory, or trying to show
the might and wonder of their
military equipment. And that is
infamous. With any one of these
motives it is infamous, and with
any two, or all three of them together, it is infamous beyond the
power of tongue to desscribe.
And it is, necessarily, against
what this 'Call' refers to as 'justice, truth and righteousness,' as
'universal peace and liberty.'
Yes, against liberty; for let any
aggressors, whoever they may be,
impelled by such motives as I
have named, accomplish their
purpose and win a final triumph,
and we are all liable to the bondage of a despotism gone mad.
Whoever these aggressors are, to
God they are responsible, and,
unless they sincerely and earnestly repent, must suffer in some
way, at God's hands, the murderer's punishment.
And, yet, even these are fellow
men. And they are redeemed by
the world'sSaviour, So Christians
at least, with respect to even
these, must guard against the
spirit of revenge, and earnestly
; cultivate rather the spirit of pity
and forgiveness, and of deepsad-
ners that humanity, anywhere,
intended for divine things, could

TO SWEEP ENEMY
An Army of Seven Million Men
to Take the Field by
October.
London, Sept. 19th.—Reports
received from Petrograd this
morning says that the Russian
pursuit of the Austrians continues;
and that the Russians have gained important successes over the
Austrian rear guards. Two army
corps with 30 guns and ammunition and 5.000 prisoners are said
to have been captured. The whole
of the Austro-Russian border
between Yusevoff and Annapol
is reported to be over-run by
Cossacks who are leading the
Russian advance. The Russian
army now in Galicia will be left
there to complete its work, for
according to a Rome despatch an
army of 900,000 Russians is
marching into central Poland,
followed by another army of two
million, while a third army aggregating two millions is coming
from more distant regions and
will reach the frontier in October.
There already are said to be a
million Russians in Galicia and a
half million in East_ Prussia.
While these numbers seem enormous they are considered probably only a fair estimate of what
Russia will have soon available
for beginning her war. It is. said
she will soon have seven million
men on the move. While continuing the offensive in Galicia Russia is standing on the defensive
on the East Prussian frontier.
London, Sept. 18.—The correspondent of the Daily Mail at Ostend reports that important
events are expected to occur in
Belgium in the next few days.

NEW SEAM HT
NO. 6 NINE
Enough Coal in Sight to Last
Over Quarter of a
Century.
No. 6 mine, of the Canadian
Collieries (Dunsmuir. Ltd.,which
adjourns the limits of the city of
Cumberland and supposed to have
been worked out years ago, has
now coal in sight for the next
quarter of a century. Sometime
ago a drift was commenced on
the south side of the shaft to
open up that field of coal lying
under the Y and the Company's
farm, with the result that a beautiful seam of clean coal has been
struck. The seam is composed
of a bot'om bench of four feet of
hard clean coal and 18 inches of
top coal, also of good quality.
The bottom is divided from the
top by six inches of soft shale
which should form good mining.
It will be a few weeks before the
management can complete ar-
I rangement.s to handle this new
j field of coal. This in itself is
| quite an asset to the city of Cum
j berland and should encourage the
1 business men to make a united
effort and boost the town they
live in. We have slept long
enough. On Monday all previous
records at No. 6 were broken
when this mine hoisted 560 tons
in eight hours.

SERVICE OF INTERCESSION
by any possible means become so

"Our first prayer, then, friends,
should be that, in this horrible
clash of arms, murderous military
aggression should not prevail, but
that this whole war, in all its
length and breadth, and its cruelty, may be over-ruled, finally,
in the interests of liberty, justice,
universal love and peace the real
inbringing of the kingdom of
God; that the murderous military
aggressors be brought, not only
to surrender, but, chiefly, to repentance and to the spirit of true
Christian humanity, brotherhood
and love, so that God's blessings,
even His best blessings, may finally come to them also; and, especially, that the terrific slaughter
of this greatest of all world-
battles be speedily brought to a
righteous end.
"Our prayer should be also,
subordinately, that the war be
over-ruled to make easier for
Great Britrin the settlement of
her own internal difficulties,—
her Home Rule and other very
perplexing issues; and to bring
all parts of the British Empire,
even to her farthest colonies and
dependencies, into eloser unity
than ever before, and secure for
her the confidence and esteem,
more and more, of all other
empires, kingdoms and peoples,
they being fully assured that she
will ever deal with any and all
with unfailing justice and grace,
to the glory of God.
"Our prayer, again, shall be
that Canada, in particular, may
be enabled to play her part in the
struggle bravely, wisely, modestly, and in every way well. Especially that our fathers, brothers
and sons who have gone or may
yet go forward for active service
may thus do their part in every
way well; and that, please God,
they may soon return safely to
us again.
"We shall pray, too, I believe,
that all among us may have grace
and magnanimity of soul to treat
in a truly Cnrist-like spirit all
citizens of Canada formerly citizens of the enemies' countries,
and also all people of those countries who, though not Canadian
citizens, are at present sojourning
among us.
"And shall we not pray, finally,
that we all may have ever more
grace to live truly, in everyway,
as men among men, manifesting
in everything a noble, manly,
exalted Christianity, world-wide
in its outlook; one that shall
really glorify our Father which
is in heaven.
"Surely these things are in line
with God's will! in harmony with
the announcement of the angels
of 'Peace on earth, good will towards men!' Surely the God of
all mankind will hear us."
