J. J. McAllister Wires Minister
of Labour that there is no
Strike in Cumb.r'an 1.
The arrival of Hon. T. W.
Crothers has removed all doubt
as to whether the officials of the
U. M. W. of A. ever made application for an investigation.
Frank Farrington, who visited
this city a few weeks ago, when
addressing the remnant of his
following led them to believe
that tho U. M. W. of A. had
endeavoured and used all means
at their disposal to secure an investigation from the Department
of Labour at Ottawa, and to substantiate his argument produced
correspondence to prove the correctness of his statement. That
there is no blame attached to the
department of Labour and that
Hon. T. W. Crother has sought
from the beginning to bring into
operation the Industrial Disputes
Aet thc following correspondence
will conclusively prove, also it
will establish beyond all doubt,
that Frank Farrington has deliberately fooled the men, played a
dishonest and dishonorable part,
and practised the grossest and
meanest deception.
The following telegram was despatched from Ottawa on September 19th by Minister Crothers,
addressed to Peter McNiven, secretary United Mine Workers of
America, Cumberland. McAllister
acknowledges the receipt in a
letter later, and his telegram of
the following day, although it
does not say so, may be taken as
an answer to it.
Ottawa, Sept. 19th. 1912,
"My attention has been drawn
to newspaper despatches announcing the occurrence of coal
miners strike at Cumberland
mines, The Industrial Disputes
Investigation Act provides means
for the possible settlement of all
matters in dispute by reference
to an impartial board of three
members of each company and
workmen concerned, each having
a representative of their own
selection. Law does not compel
acceptance of board's findings,
but forbids strikes and lockouts
pending inquiry under severe
penalties. In present case re-
quirements of act does not appear
to have been satisfied, and I am
desirous of learning particulars
of dispute by telegram without
delay. Department will furnish
any fuller explanation of Industrial Disputes Law which may be I
required, and is today mailing
you copies of this law and forms |
of application thereunder. In the I
event of proper application being]
made everything possible will be
done to expediate procedure under
the Act
Minister of Labour."
The same day the following
letter was despatched to the
same address:
Ottawa, Sept. 19th.
Dear Sir,—Referring to a telegram addressed to you by the
Minister of Labour today, I beg
to state that copies of the Industrial Disputes Investigation Act
and of the forms of application
for the establishment of boards
of conciliation and investigation
under the statute, are being forwarded you herewith.
Minister Crothers received the
f.-.lowing telegram fromMcAUisl*
er the next day, showing that he
had received the former's wire:
Cumberland, Sept. 20, 1912
T.W.Crotl.ei's, Minister of Labor:
There is no strike declared at
Cumberland mines. Thecprnpanj
have openly discriminated against
men here taking a active part in
union organization. They have
a'so refused to meet committees
of the men. The men decided to
take a holiday, after which the
company gave orders for men to
take their tools out of the mine.
j, j. McAllister.
The following-is the missing-
letter from Foster which has been
so much in dispute, as will be
seen it is dated from Nanaimo,
Sept. 30.
Nanaimo, Sept. 30, 1912.
Hon. T. W. Crothers,
Minister of Labour:
Dear Sir, —A short time a o, if
you remember, in the Wilson
Hotel you made the remark that
you would do anything in your
power for the benefit of the workers, that you would only be too
pleased to do so. Now 1 will endeavour to give you a full explanation of the trouble which we are
engaged in at the present time.
Our men have been openly discriminated against and the company
refuse to give any reason whatever. They refuse to meet our
committees, and we claim the
right to question at any time why
our men are discharged. The
company refuse to concede that
right to its. And what do we
find? They put us up against a
lock-out. Our men are compelled
to act on these gas committees
and we can find no other reasons
why they are discriminated
against. Of course the company
is able to prove that they are not
discriminating against our men
on account of their actions on gas
committees but they do not submit any reasons why they have
discharged our men unquestioned.
That is the only question at issue.
If there is any remedy we would
like to know.
Trusting you will give this
question your immediate attention and that we will receive an
early reply,
I am, fraternally yours,
Pres. Dist. 28, U.M.W. of A.

T.W.Crothers, Ministorof Labor:
Dear Sir.- -I received your telegram at the beginning of this
trouble when you asked for details as to the case in which you
state you were mailing copies of
the Industrial Disputes Act. It
is now live weeks since and no
copies have come yet, and I
might say not even an answer to
the telegram I sent. I would very
much like to know if you sent the
copy of tlie Act or an answer to
my telegram as I have been
thinking that someone has tampered with them. To save any
further suspence please let me

The Forestry department of the
Provincial Government has issued
a notice to the effect that the tax
provided for in the Forest Act in
regard to old crown granted timber was called into operation on
July 15th. The notice reads:
Subsection of Section 58 of the
Forest Act p-ovides that the tax
on old crown grant timber shall
be levied according to the grade
of the timber in question. As far
as fir timber is concerned definite
grade have long ago been established, but difficulty has occurred
in the past in establishing satisfactory grades for cedar. This
matter has now been adjusted and exporters of logs are
hereby notified that after July
15th the II, $1.50 and *2, and
other rates established by section
section 58 of the Act will be payable by exporters upon grade us
well as upon scale measurement,
These instructions have been
issued to all government scalers.
On Sunday evening, the 13th
inst. about 11 o'clock, Mr. Moore,
of Moore and Pettick, and party
travelling from Cumberland in
his motor car to his camp near
Union Bay, came down to Roy-
stun across the Canadian Collieries railway crossing and with gas
cut off took the steep and dangerous corner leading down to the
Island Highway, when his ear
skidtled from near the top of the
railway bank down to the bottom
across the main road and into the
ditch and stone wall fence on the
sea side of the main road, throwing out his child and one of the
men of his party, whose escape
was wonderful in the circumstances.'
The car had the two near side
wheels ripped off and considerable other injury done the

It was pointed out to the.Provincial Government by residents
some three months ago that this
crossing on the new electric railway belonging to the Canadian
Collieries from No. 8 Mine to
front Bridge was a death trap,
resulting in a promise from the
Collieries Co, that they would
make it O.K. We recognise that
the Collieries Company is working at high pressure just now, at
the same time it is only right
they should immedictely make
the road ns safe as it was before
they made their railroad across
it. By doing this they will relieve
the anxiety of the users of this
dangerous crossing. — courtenay

Courtenay Review.|
Tne office of the Ford Motor
Company at Walkerville, Out.,
has been deluged with enquiries
from Ford prospects regarding
rumours to thc effect that the
Ford company are selling cars or
propose to sell cars at special
prices, these prices varying anywhere from $200.00 per car to
three cars for $1,000.00.
It is supposed that the rumors
which have been spread throughout Canada have been started by
persons outside of the Ford organization with malicious intent,
and tin' Kunl Company state
definitely and finally that they
have not considered nor are going
to consider the sale of Ford cars
at anything other than full advertised list prices, neither is there
any foundation in the rumor that
thc Ford Company is going to
eliminate ils organization of dea_>
ers and sell direct to the public.

Output for Week Ending Friday

Output Increasing.
The continued increasing output at the local mines has at las t
made some of the members of the
U. M. W. of A. admit that their
case of recognition on this pait
of the Island is hopelessly lost.
It is foolishnes in the extreme
for the leaders of this foreign
organization to attempt to fool
the idlers of this place any longer. With an output of 2060 tons
for one day, which is beyond
dispute, and an output of 11,6)4
for the week ending Friday July
18th, being an increase of nearly
500 tons over the previous week.

The agitators here now console
themselves with the thought of a
possible recognition at Nanaimo,
with (lie prospect of finding a
resting place in lhat city. But
we understand tbat they arc
under just so much of a delusion
at that place as they were in
Cumberland. Time will tell the
people of Nanaimo that the stand
taken by the Herald is just and
The ISLAND-!, has always contended that there was no strike
at Cumberland, and consequently
there can be no scabs. Evidently
the district secretary of the U.M.
vV. of A. must have been of the
same opinion when he sent a
elegram to the Minister of Labour at Ottawa last September,
which commences as follows :
"There is no strike at Cumberland mines." Judging from the
correspondence published since
the arrival of Hon. T. W. Crothers between the U. M. W. of A.
antl the Minister of Labour it
seems as though the agitators
have been continuously attempting to evade an investigation,
knowing we presume that there
was nothing to enquire into.
Their dole desire has been tti keep
the Vancouver Island mines idle
as long as possible.
The Department of Labour has
recently issued a special report in
which it gives some very interesting figures concerning Canadian labour. It estimates thn
total number of wage-earners in
Canada at 1.300,000 for this cut-
rent year, of which probably
260,000 are women. Of this
number only about 160,120 are
returned as belonging to any
labour union, lt is evident from
this that the lahnurtinions represent only a small proportion, less
than 13 per cent., of Canada's

Neil glanced nt him keenly; but
the Professor had a face that was
much better at taking a battering
than at prevaricating, and It was evident that he was telling the truth in
this case.
That is1 bad, he said. Fo we want

The .Major leaned forward. I assure you, we don't, mean the least
harm to Mr, Coombes, he said. In

considerably by helping us.

Not told!    Not know you are her]

No.      She must    never   know.    I
have realised  that  since  yesterday; ]
yon know I had never seen her close j
and  face  to  face  like that since—
since I came out, never   heard   her 1

There  is  no  but.    And remember

True, I weakened on that resolve for
a moment, hut that  was when  that
scoundrel Rivington had her, and she
was 111 and in danger an.', lost.    But
I believe I never really changed my

thought deeply as she lay there, sweet

She is happy now, she is Ignorant even

As they followed the narrow street
with its foreign shops and Its pavements, where every langui^o but English seems to flou.lsh, Neil kept his
keen, black eyes glancing quickly
about him.
There is tho Alsi ce, he said, pointing to a narrow doorlng, round which
clustered a littlo knot of dark-faced
aliens. That Is a queer shop. If
the Cosmopolito is worse, It's pretty
bad. Hi.llo, one moment. There
is an acquaintance of mine.
Leaving Easton for a moment, he
crossed the road to speak to a stern-
faced man with suspiciously close-
cropped hair, who had Just emerged
from one ol' ttie houses opposite.
The man appeared surprised to see
Nell; but the two soon entered Into a
close conversation, and it was evident
from tlieir gestures that Nell was ask-
in ir questions about the house by
which they stood. He crossed the
road again ln a moment or two and
came up to Easton.
We have had a bit of luck, he said.
That is another ex*companlon of mine.
He—well, he did whnt a poet once

Well, il. doesn't manor now. What

Instance, th* oeremo-14 with th*
coronation ot a British king or th* induction of President Wilson Into otic*.
Tht king wat chosen from among
tht people by tht elders, and wat
selected tor hit wisdom. Tht ceremonies of dlsenthronement were such
that he required not only wisdom, but
also courage, physical strength and
superb digestion. The man's first
Intimation that he had been chosen
by tht tribe was an onrush of the entire ulbe—not to do him honor, but
to abuse and insult him ln every possible way.
They would hurl opproblous epithet* a' him. curie h'm, spit upon him
and pelt him. For, they said, from
this time on ht could do all these
things to them and they would be
powerless to retalltatt. It was their
last chance.
They also lemlnded him ot all hit
tailings In grnphlo and minute particulars. If the king survived this
treatment he was -hen taken to the
former king's house, where he was
solemnly invested with the insignia
ot tho kingly office In the shape ot a
silk hat. No one except the king
was permitted to wear a silk hat.
Following the Inauguration ceremonies, the people came and bowed
before the new king ln humble submission, while they praised him as
enthusiast!-ally as they had reviled
him. Then he was fed and feted for
a week, during which time ht was
not permitted to leave his house, but
had to receive guests from all parts
of hi* dominion and eat with them
all. These ceremonies ended, he
turned to the comparatively easy and
commonplace duties of his kingly office.

This man's condition is not due to

Don't you think, dear, began Mr,

the Scrubbs, are putting on a great

fact that they never know from day

Well, replied Mr.. Comfy, you see,

A New Dish
A captain of ono of II.M. ships had
received a goose from a friend, and
as ho had guests coming to dinner
that evening, ordered of his steward
that it should be cooked.
Later in the day the guests signalled fielr inability to bo present,
whereupon the captain—through his
steward—ordered that the goose
should be postponed.
At dinner, much to the captain's
surprise, ou removing the Ud of a
dish, ho found a portion of the gooso
hashed. The following conversation
then took place.
Captain—1 thought I lold you, steward, to tell cook we would postpono
tho goose?
Steward—Yes, Blr.     I told him.
Captain—Quartermaster, tell my
Maltese cook I want him.
Cook arrives.
Yes, sar.     You want me?
Captain—Did you receive my orders
to postpone this goose?
Cook—Yes, sar.
Captain—Then why didn't you carry them out?
Cook—1 did, sar. That am postponed goose!

A doctor had two patients. One
had lumbago and the other had some
trouble with hit ear. They had appointments about the same time, and
th* doctor looked into the waiting
room and called for Mr. Blank. Mr.
Blank came ln.
Take off your coat and waistcoat,
said tha doctor.
You never know what a doctor lt
after, and you generally do as he bids
you. Sometimes doctors don't kuow
what th.-y are after themselves, but
a patient never questions them. It
you go to any other kind ot man you
generally speak out lt you don't know
what ht wants to do, but you don't
do that with a doctor.
The patient took off hit coat and
waistcoat. The doctor began Humping 1-,1-m on the back.
Do you feel that?
Yes, doctor, yea.
Is lt very sore?
No, not very sore, but sore onough.
Can you stand this? said the doctor,
giving him a terrific thump.
Well, I can stand It, but—don't do
Well, well, you'r* not so very bad.
I will be when you finish your examination.
That' all right. You are not bad
enough to worry about. That'll do.

The man put on his clothes. The
doctor wae about to shake hands with

Can Only Be Had Through  Rich
Red Blood.
When the blood ta poor and thin
and th* stomad. ln consequence is
imptrfeotly supplied with oxidized
blood and nerve force, the digestive
process be.omes s'ow and fermentations of tht food goes on, with tho
formation ot gas and certain acids.
The pressure of the gas causes pa,in
ln the stomach; sometimes it affects
the heart. When the gas Is belched
out through the mouth the patient is
temporarily relieved, the sour risings
ln the throat, and the burning sensations ln tht throat and stomach are
caused by the acid fermentations.
There art plenty of things to neutralize the** acids, or to "sweeten the
Etomach" r, lt ia called, but they do
not cur* th* trouble. Pure, rich
blood which will tone up tho stomach
and enable lt to do the work nature
intended It to do 1s tl > only road to
a cure. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
make n*w, rich, red blood—lhat is
why they euro even the most obstlna'.-
cases of indigestion. The following
Is a bit ot proof. Miss Minnie
Greene, ot Hall's Bridge, Ont., says:
"About a y.ar ago I was greatly
troubled with my stomach. Everything I ate caused me pain and distress. I would feel as though I was
starved, but when meal time came tho
sight of food caused a feelln.T cf loathing. There were daya when I could
not even hold milk on my stomach,
and my head would ache bo that I
could hardly keep from Boreamlng.
Only those who have suffered from
stomach trouble know the torture I
suffered. I t-Ied almost every remedy recommended, but found not tho
hast benefit until I began taking Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. These I used
for a couple of months and they worked a perfect cure and I am again enjoying good health and able to eat
freely all kinds of food.'
If you are suffering from Indigestion
or any other trouble due to poor watery blood, begin to cure yourself today by the use of Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. Sold by all medicine dealers

The e.lit..r  does  not  hold   himself  responsible for  views expressed by
The Week, of July 12th, does not appreciate the attitude
assumed by W, L. Coulson, General Manager of the Canadian
Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd., concerning the recent visit of tbe
Hon. T. W. Crothers, Minister of Labour, who was generous
enough to come here on his own initiative to investigate and if
possible to lend a helping hand for the purpose of effecting a
settlement.    Tlie Week says as follows :—
Neither the representative of the coal operators, nor the agent
of the miners is to be complimented on the manner in which they
have seen fit to anticipate the visit of Hon. T. W. Crothers, the
Minister of Labour, who is visiting the Coast in order, if possible,
to influence a settlement of the differences which have led to the
present disastrous strike. Both Mr. Coulson and Mr. Farrington
have seen fit to notify Mr. Crothers that he is not wanted, and that
they can settle the dispute themselves. These are the express
words used by Mr. Coulson and the effect of the words used by Mr.
Farrington. Both miss the real point, which is that capital and
labour owe some duty to the public and to the State, and that their
bickerings and quarrelings may reach a point when the public interest demands intervention by the only authority which can intervene
with effect. That point has been reached in the Vancouver Island
coal strike, and whether the parties like it or not, the Government
will intervene and the strike will be ended. The Capitalist may say,
"Hands off! I have invested my money and I must be left alone in
the management of my business enterprise. You cannot compel
me to keep my mines open and if you interfere I shall close them."
The miner may say, "You cannot compel me to work unless I am
willing to do so.'' All this may be granted, but the public will also
say, "We need coal, we need enterprise to support our population,
and we will not allow either employer or employee to ruin the
country with tlieir factious disputes." If they will not keep the
mines going, the Government may have to do so for the people.
And this is the pass to which things have nearly arrived on Vancouver Island.
W. L. Coulson is to be commended for every move he lias
made since tbe 10th day of September, 1912, to prevent these
foreign agitators  from  assuming control of the Vancouver
Island coal mines.      Were ihey recognised that is, practically
speaking, what  it would mean, and it was impossible for bim
to make any other statement than tlie one he is supposed to
have made to a reporter of the Province concerning the visit
of Hon. T. W. Crothers, Minister of Labour.    We believe that
it was not intended to depreciate the services, but tbat an
investigation wus not necessary.    The local mines were idle
one mouth bull/, nnd we understand the management allowed
the mines to remain idle for the purpose of giving the  men a
chance to effect n settlement of their own difference.*..    Seeing
that they had failed in the time given the mines were thrown
open for  those that wished to return to work.    At  first the
output was small but it has continued to increase, until today
und for some weeks it has been normal.    During the last nine
months the management and miners of the Cnmbejland Mines
have been lining their level beSl  to supply the demands of the
Vancouver Island public, and we nre happy to say success has!
attended their efforts. The output for the mines for the month
of July will  undoubtedly be almost 50,000 tons.   No num
questions that with such an output an investigation becomes
unnecessary.      U'e appreciate the kindness of Hon. T.   II'.
Crothers, tbe Minister of Labour, also the kind offer of the
Vancouver Board of Trade,   but  when   there is nothiuo to
arbitrate their set vices are useless.
The Weeks  says: "The capitalist may say, hands off!"
""•I we say tliey nre perfectly jiiustifiud with reference to the
U. M. W, of A.    If the  ll'eek knew es much about the tactics
of these foreign agitators as the Islander does they would most
assuredly be of the same opinion.    Tlie question is purely and
simply this, shall Hie Vancouver Island coal  owners operate
their .own mines nil* shall the U. M. VV. of A. associated with a
certain brand of Socialism.

St. Wenceslas, Nicolet Co., Que.,

Kidney Pills becauso the doctor told
mo I was threatened with diabetes.
After taking ten boxes I wa3 again examined by the doctor, and ho told me
that all trace of diabetes had disappeared."
This Is thc statement ot Mr. David
Heon, well-known and highly respected here, and he Is only ono of many
ln this neighborhood who havo found
a new lease of life ln tho great Canadian Kidney remedy.
It Is cures such as this that havo
given Dodd's Kidney Pills their reputation. They are now known from
the Atlantic to the Pacific as the remedy that never falls to cure kidney
disease, no matter whero or ln what
form lt Is found.
Dodd's KUI.iey Pllis are no cure-
all. They simply cure diseased kidneys. The reason they cure backache, dropsy, rheumatism, neuralgia,
diabetes, urinary troubles and Bright's
disease is that all of these are either
diseases of the kidneys or are caused
by disordered kidneys falling to do
Iheir work.

The Solar Plexus a
Great Nerve Centre
With the single exception of the
brain itself, the solar plexus is the
most important nerve centro ln the
human body.
Situated just back of the stomaoh
nnd close to the spinal cord, the solar plexus supplies the motor nerves
to the vital organs. Injury to or
weakness of the solar plexus consequently means Incapacity of the vital
organs ot the body. This explains
why a blow which roaches tho solar
plexus means helplessness to the person receiving it.
Theso nerv. centres all demand an
enormous quantity of good, rich blood
nnd, falling to get this, the mrve cells
are starved and deplc'ed, and fall to
supply vital energy to the digestive
and eliminating organs.

Pastor Russell Says Satan
Is Father of Lies—Quotes
!   Harrlsburg,   Pa.,   - -Pastor
Susell's address to-day on Satan's
(Mat He was a remarkable one in
Mreral ways. He really told his audience that they had all been believing Satan's He. And he really told
•plrlt mediums that they were   the
8edi.unis, not between the dead and

t.an. and demons—the fallen angels.
And yet the Pastor said all this in
»-h a kindly, sympathetic   manner
-t surely none could take offense.
Mdently no offense   was   intended,
nt merely the presentation of what
be speaker assuredly believes to be
he teaching of the Bible.
Be opened his address by noting
the fact that the common conception

Contrary, they teach that Satan and

earth's atmosphere. They cannot
wander around the universe, as before. Satan Is very literally, there-

The lie was told in Eden. The serpent was used as Satan's tool. Satan

His associates, the fallen angels, were
not with him in his rebellion until

deflected some of these   from   their
loyalty to God and to their nature,
and induced them to materialize and
live as human beings and rear hu-
: man families, by taking human wives.
I    The Pastor pointed out the Scripture which described  this  deflection
of the angels.   This, he said, must
have progressed for centuries, according to the Bible account.   The angelie
"sons of God saw the daughters of
men that they were fair, and they
took unto themselves wives of all that
they chose."   There were born unto
them children, "men of renown," intellectually,   and   giants   physically.
The virility ot   the   angels   grafted
upon the human   stock,   produced a
race in some respects superior, but
in others very inferior.   Begotten and
born in opposition to tlie Divine will
and in a rebellious attitude of heart,
these giants ware brutish, develish.
1    Soon the earth was filled with violence.   The impaired race of Adam,
enslaved   mentally   and   physically,
were rapidly being demonized   also.
So far as the record goes, only Noah
and his family were of pure Adamic
stock and  loyal   to God.   Then  the
time came for the Deluge, which Go-
had   foreknown, and   had   withheld
| until this time. In it God swept away
both the progeny of the angels and
the impaired Adamic stock.   None of
those who received their life-principle
I from the angels were of Adamic stock.
| None of them,   therefore,   have, any
•hare   in   the   redemptive   work   of
! Jesus, and hence none of them will
' have any part in the resurrection and
restitution, which God has promised
' shall be accomplished by the glorious
; Messiah during the thousand years
■ of   Hia   Messianic   Kingdom.   They
merely perished—were blotted out in
. the Deluge as natural brute beasts,
! as St. Peter declares of all wilful sin*
1 ners of Adam's race.—2 Peter 2:12.
|-   "The angels which kept not their
first estate"—who followed the lead-
| ership of Satan—were   cast   to Tar-
' tarus—our   earth's   atmosphere—and
j there are restrained for a time that
i they may not roam throughout   the
universe.    (Jude 6.)    They   are re*
: strained also for a time from mater-
i ializing in human form—Satan like-
I wise.   Thus Satan's plan for empiro
I failed.   But still rebellious in spirit,
he took   up   a new   line   of   battle
ipeak under a satanio impulse or ob* ! "gainst God.    He would be content
to use humanity as his tools, even
i though tliey were imperfect and dy*
I ing.   They should be his slaves, and
he would embitter them against God,
and defeat God's plans on behalf of
I humanity.
Satan realized.that the secret of his
I power with mankind must lie in his
] deception of them.   If men knew that
j they were being led captive into sin
j at the will ot Satan and his fallen
I hosts, they would rebel against him.
' In order to hold humanity as far as
1 possible his slaves, he realized that he
■ must seduce them by fostering ignor-
I ance   and   superstition.     He   must
i alienate them from God.    Therefore
| he caused them to think ot God as a
terrible being, unworthy of their lovo
I and confidence, one whom they might
! fear, but could not worship in spirit
I and in truth. As a basis for this great
scheme of human   ensnarement and
1 obsession, Satan used his original lie.
For now four thousand years he has
sought by every means in his power
to instil that lie into the minds of all
humanity in every land.   He has his
demon host to  co-operate   with  him
in making light appear darkness, and
darkness   appear   light,   to   deceive
How wonderfully he has succeeded
the whole world is witness to-day.
Notwithstanding tho fact that man's
five senses tell him that the dead are
dead, tho masses believe to the contrary—that the dead are more aliva
than before they died. Notwithstanding the consistency of God's Word,
"Thou ehalt surely die,'" and the inconsistency of Satan's lie, "Ye shall
not surely die," the whole world is
enslaved by Sstan's He. The Pastor
declared that tho Book of the Revelation pictures the condition of the
world, in declaring thnt oil nations
will bo made drunk with the wine of
false doctrine.
While we must acknowledge that
some spirit mediums are merely
frauds, said the Pastor, we have every
reason to believe tli at many of them
nro very sincere, but dece;ved. Many
of them thoroughly believe that they
communicate with the dead. Only
the Bible can save any ono from
that delusion. It alone shows us
that a demon host is co-operating
with Satan, to prove his lie and to
enslave mankind and to separata
them from the truth of God's Word.
Witches, wizards and necromancers
were forbidden in tlie land of Israel;
and yet there wero some there, and
influenced such as were not fully in
harmony with God. King Saul,, wo
remember, sought the witch of En-
dor. The demons made certain
things appear on the   retina of   the
..  .. —    ..  . witch's eye.   She describe what she
bis  chance.   By  capturing  the  first I saw to King Saul.   Ho recognized it
•ession or hypnosis, but he incline-
to believe that the serpent spoke by
Its actions. He quoted the proverb
which declares that "Actions speak
louder than words." He thought that
this was probably the way in which
the serpent spoke to Mother Eve.
God had forbidden our first parents
to eat of a certain kind of fruit in
the Garden, without telling them why.
It was simply a test of their obedience, their loyalty to Him. He told
them thut disobedience, disloyaty, in
this matter would result in their
death. He ssid nothing about eternal
torment. The wilful sinner, according to the Bible, Is to die, to perish
•s a natural brute beast. God's
favors are lor only those who will
•bide in His Love. "The wages of
oin is death; but tlie gift of God is
everlasting life, through Jesus Christ
our lord."
Tho serpent, by eating of the forbidden fruit without dying, but on
the contrary being the wisest of all
the beasts, seemed to give the lie to
Clod's word. Through tho serpent
Baton declared to the woman, "Yo
•hall not surely die." Through the
lerpent, Satan also told Mother Eve
that God evidently was trying to keep
herself and her husband in ignorance,
blindness, darkness; and that it was
time for them to awake, to assert
their rights, and to make tho best of
themselves, by eating of the forbidden fruit. Fnt'.ier Adam knew better,
but when he found that hia clear wile
had eaten and thus had come under
the sentence, or curse, of death, ho
was so discouraged that he determined to die with his wife, loving her so
tnuch that he would rather die with
her than live without her.
Satan's object in telling this lie, in
deceiving our first parents, was mncle
very clear by the Pastor. From other
Scriptures he pointed out that Satan
for some' lime had been saying to his
heart that he would like to have and
to exercise still higher powers than
those which he possessed. He would
like to be "ns tho Most High." He
would bo a sovereign, who might
work out his own plans. He had no
thought ol supplanting the Almighty,
but had the pride to suppose that he
could manage tho universe better
than God could, and that it he had a
imoll section under his control, he
would demonstrate this snd put the
Almighty to the blush.
When man was created, Satan's opportunity for exercising his ambition
seemed to have come. Mnn possessed a power which the angels had not.
He could propagate his own kind,
and   was   commissioned  to  fill  the
earth with a population and to bring
It to Edenic   pertection.   Satan   saw
pair nnd making thom his subjecb
and   alienating   them   from   the Almighty, he would capture a race, and ;
eventually be the spirituol prince, oj:
ruler, of this world.   It was to carry j
out this program that he cjeceived our
first parents and started his great lie,      „„_.„ _ ,.
When Satan perceived that his sub- | knowledge ol God and the apprecia-
iect. were perishing and becoming tion of His Word. Frequently the
mbecile, mentally and physically, he ' spirits gel suoh control of the .nincls
ihought to Circumvent the Divine and bodies of those who yield their
penalty hy introducing fresh   vigor,    wills, that they not only suffer ob-
as a description of the Prophet Samuel. The witch also communicated to
Saul what purported to ba the word
of Samuel, and what was Tcally the
word of demons.—1 Chronicles 10:13-.
Satan's lie |s Btill potent in the
Oriel,  hindering millions  from  the
pen:....   ..,     _   .
life, into the human family. This he
did by seducing some of the angels.
Originally angels apparently had the
Eower   of   materialization—of   taking
uman iorm or uuy other form that
session, but sometimes become absolutely possessed by these demons.
Under such circumstances, they ar.
generally considered to be insane, al*
though doctors know that many ol
fcese have no mental disease, bat are
controlled by outside influence.
The Pastor urged all to accept the
testimony of God's Word—that death
tl the penalty for (in; that the death
of Jesus Is the Redemption-price Irom
the curse of death, and that the resurrection of the dead, the raising up
again to perfection of life, Is the
salvation ot the Bible. Not only
would this help us to come nearer to
God, through a better understanding
of the Bible, but it would help to
free us from the various snares of the
Furthermore, he lound in the Bible
Intimations that in the very near future these evil spirits would be permitted to break over tlieir restraints,
and that all not properly fortified by
the truth on the subject would be
liable to be specially ensnared by
Satan's lie. He would not prophesy
what this trouble would be. nor just
how it would come, but he did fore,
warn his hearers. He urged all to
come out from the influence of Satan
and his slanders of the Almighty
and his misrepresentations of facts,
and to enlist under the banner of
Jesus as servants et truth and righteousness.
Jesus declared Satan to be the
Father of lies. This corroborates the
thought that never until Satan stnrt-
ed the course of sin was there any
need fot lies. All of God's dealing
with the angels and tlieir dealings
with each other have been along the
lines of simplicity, truth, purity, holiness. The flrst use for a lie was when
Satan determined to exalt himself as
the god of earth. It was to alienate
our first parents from the Almighty
that Satan lied to them, assuring
them that disobedience to* God would
not bring the death penalty that Go-
had declared. Ever Bince then, sin,
abounding, has given temptation to
misrepresentations, bearing false witness, etc.
Selfishness was the foundation for
the first lie. And selfishness continues to invite falsehood, eveu
■amongst those who see clearly how
despicable falsehood is. And each
falsehood seems to call for another to
help justify it, and to cover up the
selfishness which prompted it. No
wonder the Apostle urges those who
become Christians to put away lying,
saying, "Lie not one to another." As
Satan stands as the Father of lies, so
God, on the contrary, stands as the
Father of Truth.
Our Lord not only said that Satan
is the Father of lies, but intimated
that the lying spirit is of Satan, saying to soma of those who opposed the
Truth, Ye are of your father, the
Devil, if his works ye do. "He was
a murderer from the beginning and
abode not in the Truth." (John 8:44.)
On the contrary, God, the Father of
Lights and the Father of the Truth,
is the personification of Light, Truth,
even as Satan personifies darkness,
error, falsehood.
The conflict between light and darkness, truth and errqr, has progressed
for more than six thousand years.
God's Word is always the Truth.'
Jesus prayed, "Sanctify them through
Thy Truth; Thy Word is Truth.",
Satan's falsehoods are always injurious; hence the promise is that when
Jesus, the Prince of Light, shall take
His great power and reign, He wilt
bind Satan, the Prince of Darkness,
that he may deceive the nations no
Here we have another corroboration
of the fact that the great deceiving
power amongst mankind for six thousand years has been a spiritual one
—Satanic power. No wonder .flat
under this domination of Satan we
have had what St. Paul calls a reign
of sin and death. No wonder the Bible declares that from tlie Divine
standpoint the world has been in
darkness! "Darkness covers the
earth; gross darkness the heathen."
Jesus came, and brought light into
the world. But men love darkness
rather than light because their deeds
are evil, because sin has gained such'
a hold upon them, because it is easier
for them to remain under the blinding influence of Satan tban to come
under the blessed light of the Gospel
of Christ in the present time. It costs
something now to be a follower of tho
Prince of Light, an opposer of the
Prince of Darkness, whose Tealm ia
How glad we are that the morning
of the new Day is so near! As Jesus
explains (Matthew 13:43) "Then Eholl
the righteous shine forth as the suu
in the Kingdom of their Father."
Himself and His elect Church, gathered from every nation nnd denomination, will constitute the glorious ruling Power of the New Dispensation.
Jesus likens His Kingdom to the sun.
As the sun scatters tho darkness of
earth and drives away its mist, bo
will the Sun of Righteousness arise
with healing in its bourns nnd scatter
all tho ignorance, superstition, falsehood, and bring to all mankind a true
knowledge of Clod. The light of the
knowledge of the glory of God shall
fill tlio whole earth os the water
covers the great deep!—Isaiah 11:9;
Habakkuk 2:14.
Daring and Credulity.
Martin Frobishor's adventures iu
search of the Northwest passage form
a curious mixture of daring and credulity. With the piratical instinct of
tho true Elizabethan, Frobisher was
tempted to forego exploration in
quest ot phantom gold. One of his
sailors hnd brought homo a piece of
black pyrite, which the goldsmiths ol
London declared to contain no gold,
but which an Italian quack yaiued
highly. The Italian's advice being
preferred, Frobisher went out a second time to Greenland's iey mountains nnd brought homo 200 tons of
rubbish that much tarnished the
credit of latter days.
