Livestock   Industry   Requests   Suppression of Garfield Reports.
Sail l,ake City. 1'tah, June 7���The
Herald   today  published  B   letter   from
President Prank J. n. Agenbarth, of
the National Livestock Assochulon,
Which says in part;
"The president has seen III lo ignore
certain requests from ofiicial represent,
atlves of the livestock Industry request lug him to withhold any radical
measure or reports to congress heuring
on abuses of the packing industries,
for the reason that such message, if
heralded over the world, would work
an Irreparable loss both at home and
abroad   to  the  producers of  livestock.
"It must he presumed lhat the president of the United Stales Is too big
and broad a man to feel chagrin lie-
cause of the fact that Commissioner
Garfield's report exonerates the pack-
ers from certain imputed delinquencies, and it cannot be thought that ho
harbors revenge because Judge Humphrey's decision was In a measure a
defeat for the government. Nor If it
he presumed that because he failed on
these two former occasions that the
president, auxious to make a record
or win out, obose the present method
of doing so."
Mr. Hagenbarth urges that all existing abnses could he corrected under
the laws now In force, and declares
lhat tho Reynolds report concerns principally particular occurrences, and not
general conditions, Ho says the stock
growers have suffered for three years

dlclment ngalnsl Vice President Admiral Rojestvensky, who commanded the
Russian fleet at the battle of the Sea
ol Japan, und the officers of the torpedo bont destroyer, who surrendord to
the enemy afler the battle. The indictment is a crushing arraignment of

Frenchman's Pardon Still
a Mystery
The Department of Justice Offers
No  Expianatoin  in Bro-
thier's Case.
Special telegram from Ottawa to
British Colombia Indicate thai tbe department of Justice, acting in the Brothler case and releasing that criminal
from hit* term of penal servitude, did
so without consulting any of the members of the house from British Columbia, No explanation of this still! mysterious pardon is forthcoming, and the
department 1.3 seeking 10 lake shelter
under the announcement that, it does
not make explanations as to why it
does this or that.
The changes that have taken place
in the cabinet make it more difficult to
discover any facts in the case, as the
action of the department was taken
just before Hon. C. Fitzpatrick was
laised to the bench of the supreme
court of Canada. He is not, therefore,
personally called on to vindicate the
acU of the depart meat, and his predecessor's mouth is now closed, as his
responsibility to the people has ceased.
So far as he may have had any pari
in the matter while acting as minister
of justice, he need not now, and probably   will not, speak.
A vote of censure was passed at
Vancouver upon his connection with
the act, and the matter is becoming
ihe subject of lively discussion in Canada from end io end. Public discus
si on of the matter as a political issue
will not be stoppd till the action of
the department is explained or some
satisfactory statement made. It is
learned that, tne British Columbia
members are hastening to put themselves right with their constituenis by
disclaiming all knowledge of the affair.
It has been suggested that the department acted on a suggestion which
it Is alleged had been made that if
Urothier were pardoned he would immediately sail for France, and never
set   foot  on American  territory   again,
Mr. EL Ci. Macpherson. interviewed
by a correspondent, asserted positively
that be had notmng to do with Rro-
thier's release in any shape or form,
and never heard of the mailer till I!
was brought to his attention by a telegram   from   Vancouver.
When he made inquiries today at
the department of justice, he found
lhat the aclion had been taken at the
instance of a prominent legal ilrm of
Vancouver, who had been working in
connection therewith for six or eight
months past.
"If I had been consulted." concluded
Mr. Macpherson, "it would nol have
gone through."
Two  More  American Steamers  in  Collision-���No   Lives   Lost.
Portland, Me,. June 7.���The Knstern
Steamship Company's steamers City of
Bangor and City of Rockland, bound in
opposite directions between Bangor
and Huston with passengers, were in
collision off Monhegan early today.
The City of nangor, which left Bnngor
last evening, was considerably damaged, but proceeded to this port, a
distance of 46 miles. The City of
Rockland, which was not seriously
harmed, continued on her way to nangor.
Both steamers carried passengers,
but no one on either boal was hurt.
Liverpool   Health   Officer   Asserts that
Tinned Meats are All Right.
Liverpool, June 7.���Reassuring statements regarding American canned
goods were made by both tl c chairman
and the medical officer at today's meeting of the Liverpool health committee.
The chairman emphasized Ilie carefulness of the inspection here, and said n
very large number of tinware is ���examined  yearly,  nnd  all  of them    had
been found to be quite good. Consumers, therefore, need not be alarmed, as the commiltee was closely
Watching over their interests. Medical
Officer Hope declared that the great
bulk of tinned meat arrived at Liverpool in a very excellent condition.
There had nol been a single instance
of harm from si"U :..eat brought to
light so far ns he knew. Perhaps from
:i00 to 400 tons of tinned meat was
destroyed yearly because the tins were
blown, owingt o defective fastening.
hut this was u small percentage, and
tne great bulk was in first-class condition.
Continuing, Mr. Hope said: "Against
these facts we have to set the statement of th*" president of the Unlte'd
Slates, and while the latter gives the
Immense weight of his authority to the
existence of abominably? conditions in
Chicago, we advise the people to refrain from buying anything so long as
these  conditions  exist."
Lower   House  Adjourns    and   General
Holiday Observed.
St. Peicrsbnrg, .Tune 7.-Today was
the empress' birthday, and it was observed as a general holiday. The lower house of parliament, without specifically mentioning the reason, honored
the occasion by adjourning until tomorrow.
Constitution      Adopted���Officers     and
Committees   Elected���Other
Matters Discussed.
The later proceedings of the synod
yesterday afternoon, apart from the
debate on education, which appears
elsewhere in this issue, consisted of
the discussion of the report of the executive committee, which contained the
following  recommendations:
1. That this diocese establish inter-
diocesan relation&hip with other dio-
cones which are willing to reciprocate
in the clergy pension funds.
2. That the present clergy relief
fund be merged into the clergy pension
II. That some immediate steps be taken:
1. To provide for a bishop for the
diocese of Kootenay.
2. To complete the bishopric endowment fund, (a) My a systematic canvass of every parish in the diocese,
(b) By the appointment of a suitable
clerical'delegate who shall raise funds
in England.
The first and third were adopted*
only the third evoking much debate.
E9, A. Crease protested against the apparent disposition to rely exclusively
on English aid, and urged that efforts
be made in the diocese to secure a part
of the necessary fund. A committee
including Revs. E. P. Flewelling, F. H.
Graham and C. A. Procunier, and C.
\V. Busk and W. A. Jowett, was appointed to make provision for the hish'
opric  endowment  fund.
Rev. F. H. Graham then withdrew
his motion for biannual synods.
At his own request. Archdeacon Beer
was relieved of the duties of clerical
secretary of the synod, and Rev. F. H.
Graham was elected.

North Atlantic Companys'
Names Withheld
Vigorous   Opposition   Amendment
Outvoted in the House
by % to 47.
Ottawa, June B.���Mr. Preston has
Hhown that he is master of the administration. HIb refusal to reveal tho
identity ot the men composing the
North Atlantic Trading Company was
endorsed hy Premier Laurler, Hon.
Mr. Fielding and other members of the
government today*. Mr. Monk moved
a resolution setting forth the facts of
Die agreements with the company, the
large sums paid by way of bonuses.
Mr. Preston's refusal to say who composed the company, and declaring that
it is undoubtedly the right and privilege of the house of commons to have
all information it may desire on public
matters within its jurisdiction. As
Mr. Preston's refusal constituted a
breach of privileges of the house, Mr.
Monk desired that Che witness be summoned to the bar of the house on
Wednesday afternoon to answer such
questions as might be put to him and
receive such injunctions, orders and
monitions as the house might see St.
Mr. Monk made a strong speech in support of his motion, and Sir Wilfrid
Laurler was equally emphatic on the
other side. He announced that he
had the names of the persons who
constitute the company in his hand,
and was willing to show them to Mr.
Borden in confidence. At this statement there were loud cries of "No"
from the opposition. Sir Wilfrid then
moved an amendment setting forth
that an assurance had been given to
tile company by a responsible minister
of the crown that their names would
not be divulged, and that this assurance was binding on the Dominion;
therefore, the house refused to permit
any minister or officer of the government to violate the engagement to do
Mr. Borden made a slashing reply,
and the debate was continued with
great vigor by Hon. Mr. Fielding.
Messrs. Northrupt, Sproule, Carvel,
Hughes, Miller and others. Mr. Bou-
rassa made a vigorous attack upon the
North Atlantic Trading Company, and
expressed his great regret that the
government had made a secret agreement with the company. There was
not. the slightest reason, in his judgment, why the names should be withheld. The house divided on Sir Wilfrid I.aurier'8 amendment, which was
carried by 95 to 47. Messrs. Bourassa,
Lavergne and Verville, Liberals, voted
with the opposition.
He Does Not Take President J. J. Hill
New York, June ".���Sii William Van
Home, while In New York yesterday,
expressed the opinion that there was
much more talk than actual work
about the much discussed Hill lines In
Western Canada. He was not Inclined
to nccept seriously the announcement
that Hill means to build a new line all
the way from Winnipeg to the Paciflo
"The plans that I have heard talked
about," Sir William said, "are hardly
plans which 1 should think Hill would
seriously consider.
"What all the talk Is about I do not
know and cannot guess. I presume,
however, Hill has certain plans for
branch lines in the Canadian Northwest, anil his talk about Winnipeg und
other places may be for the purpose
of gaining their support."
State Says It Was Not an Aggravated
yesterday to pay a fine of five dollars
and to be Imprisoned at Foleom penitentiary for onei year.
The district attorney's office represented that the crime was not an aggravated case, and dropped prosecution against the clergyman's second
wife, a Mrs. Green. Wylle was a minister of the Methodist Episcopal church
at New York, where he married his
first wife 18 years ago. Last year the
Wylles moved to a mining camp near
Phoenix, Ariz., and were visited by-
Mrs. Fannie M. Green, of New York.
The clergyman sent his wife and an
adopted child to relatives at Council
Bluffs. Iowa, and during their absence
married the Green, woman at 1��h Angeles last August. The first wife learned of the second marriage, and swore
to a complaint charging the contracting parties with bigamy. The clergyman and his second wife were en route
to Ensenada when Intercepted by the
Three En perort Felicitate Each Other
and Swear Friendship.
Vienna, June 7.���Telegrams exchanged yesterday between Emperors
Francis Joseph and William on the
one hand, und the king of Italy on the
other, evidently were drawn up with
a view of discouraging a continuance
of the reports of alleged conditions between the German emperor and King
Victor Emmanuel, and the consequent
weakening of the drelbund. The two
emperors telegraphed jointly as follows:
"As] two allies, we send to you, the
third, a sincere and united expression
of our unalterable friendship."
The Italian king's reply was equally
warm-hearted.    He telegraphed:
"I share your satisfaction and desire for unity, and beg that you will
accept the assurance of my true and
Invariable amity."
Destructive  Monopolies to be Repress
ed In Australia.
Melbourne, June, 7.���Lord Northcote,
the governor-general of Australia, In
his speech at the opening of the Federal parliament today announced the
Immediate submission of a bill for the
"preservation of the Australian industries and the repression of destructive
monopolies." The governor-general
also stated that negotiations of the
Australian government for new preferential trade treaties with South Africa, New Zealand and otner quarters
of the empire were far advanced.
Crop Reports from Thirty Points Indicate There Will be a Heavy

James R. Wylle, self-confessed bigamist,  was  sentenced  by Judge  Smith
Calgary, June 7.���The weekly crop
report given out by the C. P. K. today
completely discredits the reports circulated recently in eastern papers to
the effect that the famous Alberta red
fall wheat had been damaged by dry
weather. From thirty points throughout the province crops of all kinds are
reported In good condition, and that
frequent warm showers have,, occurred
in all parts of the province. The splendid growing weather of the past two
or three weeks has been the means of
assuring an excellent harvest of all
grains. Wheal and oats average from
six to eight inches high, and barley
five Inches. The large ucreage of flax
sown promises well.
The Importance of Calgary as a
weBtern distributing centre has been
recognized by three more large eastern wholesale firms, who have already
made arrangements to plnco warehouses In this city. The W. R. Brock
Company. Limited, of Toronto, have
purchased two lots in the wholesale
district, and will at once begin the
erection of a large building In which
to handle their western business. The
Ames-Holden Shoe Company, of Montreal, have also decided to open a
branch warehouse in Calgary. They
expect to have their premises ready In
a short time. The Thomas Ryan Company, Limited, of Winnipeg, wholesale
boots and shoes, have also decided to
make this city their headquarters for
western trade. Their building will be
In the wholesale district, and will be
ready for occupancy In time to distribute the autumn business.
The addition of these three large
firms glvcR Calgary 72 wholesale establishments.
Important Contract Taken
by Nelson Men
Firm of Isaac and Hinton are Making Machinery For Canadian
Reduction Co's. Plant.
The Importance of Nelson as a manufacturing centre Is steadily growing.
The central location of the city Jn
Kootenay, the city's prominence as a
railway and distributing centre, and
abundance, present and prospective,
of cheap power, have all contributed
to the result. But the real determining factor has undoubtedly been the
enterprise and ability of the men who
have entered the field and" undertaken
the work.
In the two iron foundries located
here, the Kootenay Engineering Works
and the Nelson Iron Works, are Industries that would be creditable to a
much larger town than Nelson, In a
more populous district.
The contracts for smelter machinery
and castings from the Hall Mines
smelter, and for aerial trams tor district mining companies, that hare been
awarded to the Kootenay Engineering
Works, have been mentioned locally
Perhaps a more striking evidence of
the position gradually being achieved
by Nelson is furnished in a contract
just given to the Nelson Iron Works
by the Canadian Reduction Company
for their plant at Trail.
Among the modifications and Improvements constantly being made at
the big reduction plant, a late one,
and one of tbe simplest and at the
same time most useful and valuable,
Is the substitution of vertical for horizontal anodes for the handling of lead
and other ores In process of treatment,
for conveying from one part of the
works to another. It was found that
the wide flat bar of metal was frequently bent from Its own weight, and became therefore inconvenient for handling.
When it was decided to adopt the
vertical form and position new moulds
were required for the purpose. Ten
were wanted at once.
The contract was offered to Messrs.
Isaac & Hinton. of the Nelson Iron
Works. It was the first work of the
kind undertaken. Mr. Isaac, for the
firm, accepted the contract for only one
nt first, completed it and made delivery. It gave perfect satisfaction, and
Ihe result was that the firm have received the contract for the remainder,
which are now being made.
Seen on the subject yesterday, Mr.
Isaac said that the contract was .'.
fairly large one, and the work of a
delicate nature, as It is essential that
every part should be absolutely true.
The firm had hesitated about accepting
work of lhat kind, and were accordingly well pleased that It had been found
The United States It   Pitted Against
Newport, Eng., June 7.���The International tennis tournament for the possession ot the demijohn of the Davis
international challenge cup commenced
this afternoon. The United States Is
pitted against Australia for the honor
of challenging the British soldiers. The
Inability of Beal C. Wright to represent
the United States In consequence of
the blood poisoning of his hand was
somewhat counterbalanced by the absence of Norman Brookes, the Australian expert, who was unable to come
to England.

Tin' meeting ��t tin- Mountain Lumbermen's Association in the city this
week naturally Buggests th,' injustice
bearing upon them by tlio unreasoned
imposition of ;i heavy tnriiT on the Imported machinery with which they
equip their mills and factories, nnd
calls a-ttentidn to the invidious distinction made between machinery for
the operation of minis and thai for

topic vvitli tlic mill men nf the interior ami nt tlie const. Repeated representation of tin' facts have been made
to Ottawa, Inn for Borne imp rooivaliln
reason no readjustment nf the tariff
has been carried into effect. In both
the mining nnd milling industries the
province of 'British Columbia excels,
or will excel, nil tin1 other provinces
and states nn the continent; lint while
mining machinery, is properly placed
on the free list, the heavy ins nf 26
per cent, is levied upon tin1 lumber
ing am) milling machinery. Added lo
this Injustice is another under the
terms nf which rough nnd lint partly
manufactured lumber run i��' Imported
into Canada from the United Stales
free nf duty, iu tho rapidly expanding
markets nf the northwest, tin- Cana-
diun mill men suffered a serious handicap by reason nf the facl that until
quite recently tlie American mill owner
could purchase Canadian lugs, tojw
thorn a few miles further than his
Canadian neighbor, manufacture them
witii cheaper labor and supplies on
l'ugi'i Bound, nnil thru send them into
Canada with lower freight rates nn

unequal competition the mill man nf

required in itritish Columbia, there
might appear compensating apology
for ilie tariff; but the,heavy machinery required to handle the enormous
timber of this country is not made in
Canada, and the only recourse is to
Imitorl   [t   from  foreign territory.
With tlm heavy duty nn machines
nnd the free admission of lumber from
the United Stales, nn anomalous situation results, ami one wliiih is greatly
detrimental in the lumbering Interests,
It  must  lie apparent that a 1 ittlo more
tariff tinkering would react to ihe
great advantage of one of the most im

lu u recent number of a Canadian
magazine Mr. J. Castell Hopkins, historian, editor and Uterateur, sums up
the achievement of Premier Whitney
and his colleagues during the short
space of time they have been in power
in Ontario. Those who know Mr. Hopkins' fluent and graceful style will
agree that it would be a literary crime
to emasculate his articles, so we produce this one without further comment
or apology:
"The Whitney government of Ontario is an nlmusi startling evidence of
the capacity, energy and faculty of Initiative winch may lie dormant, undiscovered and unappreciated in an opposition during so many years. Mr.
Whitney has been In power for little
over a year, yet he anil Ills colleagues
have worked a revolution in Canadian
politics and shown how much can be
done In a short time within the limited sphere of a province, and, hy in
feionc/', 'how much more could he
done In lhe wider sphere of federal
and Imperial politics If our public men
would only let their natural powers of
constructive action have freer play���
and not he constantly cribbed, cabined and confined hy questions as to
what tills district will think, or that
chinch or race feel, or this wire-puller
say, nr some combination of manipulators do.
"During this really remarkable polit
ical year the University of Toronto
problem, with all its educational complexities and financial dlffloultles, has
been boldly grappled with; tbe scheme
nf a great Toronto hospital has been
piu upon the high-road to success by a
bold act nf government initiative; the
ever present, ever dangerous, yet vital
liquor problem has been handled without gloves and with apparent Indifference as to whether extremists on the
one side, or license holders on the ot lief, nn men In the middle, are pleased
or displeased; the railway question
lias been taken up, and radical measures /proposed involving a provincial
railway commission, a practically two-
cent passenger fare, the elimination
nf perpetual franchise grants from future policy, arrangements for admission of radial lines to cities and public protection hy means of guards,
brakes, etc.; the Gillies timber limit
in the Cobalt region has been retained
by tlie province, and Is to be mined
and operated by the government for
the people; the Niagara power ques-
linn has been dealt with by the refusal
to accept the Ross government's arrangement with the Electrical Devol-
opmenl Company, hy Mr. Adam Heck's
campaign for popular control, ami with
every Indication of the government's
Intention tn adopt a policy of public
ownership in this vital matter; and a
general education measure has just
been presented along tho lines of Mr.
Whitney's repealed declaration that
the public school Is the essential and
most Important part ot the educational system. All this performance and
pending action In one short year is
The Hon. R. P. Green, chief commissioner of landji and works, on bis return In Victoria after his visit to various parts of the Interior, wns Interviewed by a Colonist reporter, and
gave a most enthusiastic review of the
Improvements and progress made in
the parts of the Interior which he visited.
Speaking of the political outlook for
the government party. Mr. Green Is
reported to have said:
"Opportunity was taken while ih the
vicinity of meeting tbe citizens of
Golden, Wllmer, Atnalmer, winder-
mere,  Spiilamuchoen,  Field  and olher
places, and speeches were delivered by
both the premier and myself upon the
genera! public questions and any matters of local Interest, and I am glad tn
say that on each and every occasion
we were listened to by large ami appreciative audiences,
"It was evident that the course pursued by members of the present government in personally visiting the different sections of the province from
time to time Is not only tbe right one,
but It Is certainly approved by the people."
"Politically?"  queried   the  reporter.
"Well, ail I can say nn that point,"
remarked the minister, "is that the
situation could nol he better; ami it
was a source of much satisfaction tn
note that honest ami determined en
deavor tn serve the country in the
best nf our ability Is nut without appreciation."
The globe-girdling trip thai Is being
made by Mr. T. II. I'. ShaughnoBBy,

We are not aware that there Is another single corporation in existence over

Mr, John Flett, labor organizer of
Hamilton, has declared that in three
months' time a political labor party
would be organized   in Ontario.    He
said the legislative committee nf the
trades aud labor council were dissatisfied with the Whitney government,
which did nntliing tor the laboring men
in the session just concluded. At Ottawa, too. said Mr. Flett, the capitalist
was getting iu his work with the government against the interests of the
laboring classes. He thought the labor
party would be as successful, proportionately, In elections iu Canada as In
Great Britain.
An important piece nf Information
has been given out as the result of tbe
burning of tlTe Toronto general post-
office, The impression seemed to lie
general that lhe registration of a letter
carried with it a guarantee of safe delivery, or, falling that, its value In
cash. A statement handed nut by the
government officials 'in Monday dispels
any such illusion. Here It is; "If a
registered letter Is lost or burned, or
otherwise destroyed, tho sender is not
entitled to collect anything from lhe
department. The registering of a letter Ib just an extra safeguard to Insure.
its delivery."
The Cape to Cairo Telegraph.
A writer in the Glasgow Herald
states that the line has now readied
UJIJI, capital and chief town or German East Africa, on file eastern shore
of Lake Tanganyika. Construction
work Is suspended, while the route
northward is .carefully surveyed nnd
the sections of the line erected are got
Into working order. Prom a purely
commercial point the line is fully coming up to, if not exceeding, the expectations concerning it. The engineers,
however, face a difficulty in their preparation for carrying It forward from
Ujljl, the country for nearly 100 miles
through which the line would have tn
pass being very swampy ami unfit for/
the erection of a telegraph pole. It
was al first thought a wide dolour
would have lo lie made In order to escape this region, lint other counsels
have prevailed, and a much more daring experiment is likely tn be tried.
This Is the installation of the system
of the Marconi system of wireless lel-
egraphy, in order to bridge over this
belt.    This combination of nn African
jungle swamp with the latest   til ph
of scientific discovery is only another
instance of the onward march nf civilization through what were, until a few
yearn ago, the unknown parts of Ilie
The   Lawn.
Now that the warm weather is setting In, the large majority nf people
will be watering every spare moment.
This Is quite unnecessary, oven in the
holiest weather, aud In Ihu majority of
cases Is really harmful. The cold water will chill and kill your liner grasses
and nlleiw nothing hut the coarse grass
to grow; consequently In a year or so
the best lawn will be spoiled. A lawn
well watered between 5 and 7 p. m.
twice a week will look much better
at the end of a season than one watered every day. The man who lots his
water run on the lnwn after S or 9
p. m. should be prosecuted, first, for
wasting good water; and, secondly, for
being such a  fool.
About the first week In July the
lnwn should have a sprinkling of special lawn grass fertilizer.
Dr,   R.   Lydekker   Affirms   that   They
Really Exist.
Hr. R. Lydekker, the famous student
ol animal life and noted author, has
offered the following comment mi a
report that Hying snakes have been
seen by natives of Borneo:
"Although the alleged Hying powers
of certain Malay lings is now generally considered to lie n myth, according
to Mr. It. Shelfiuil. who recently read
a note oa the subject before the London Zoological Sni let;, throe tree-
snakes from Borneo arc Btatetl by tin-
unlives   (and   native     testimony     has,
very   generally   at   least,   u   f datum
of truth) iii he possessed nt' tlte power
of taking Hying leaps from tin' boughs
nf Irees to Ihe ground, lu all three
of those the scales on Ibo lower j-.hi-
face nf the body are provided Willi :i
suture or iiingi'llne on each side; and
by means nf n muscular contraction
ibese scales can he drawn Inward, so
that the whole lower surface becomes
quite concave, nad the snake itself
may bo compared to u rod of bamboo
bisected longitudinally. Hy experiments 'in Chrysopelea ornata it was
seen that tbe snake, when fulling
from a height, descended not in writhing coils, hut with lhe body laid stiff
und rigid, and that the line nf tlm full
was al an angle lu a slraight line from
the point of departure in the ground.
In the author's opinion it is highly
probable that lhe concave ventral surface of the snake helps to buoy it up
in its fall, as it can he shown that a
longitudinally bisected rod of bamboo
falls more slowly than an undivided
rod of equal weight."

The following is tliu text of Ihu synod sormon delivered nt the special service In St. Saviour's church hist night
by Rev. c. A. Procunier, of Revel-
Jeremiah vl., It); "Thus sniih lhe
Lord: 'Stunil In the ways and see, aud
usli fur the old paths, where Is the good
way, and wulk therein, and ye shall
find rest for your souls.' "
This text Is not only nn emphatic
implication of tho actual degeneracy
of ancient Israel, but also Is a prophet'
lc picture of the ulmosl universal drift
of modern Christianity. On the unit
hand, there was deviation from the old
paihs of profound faith In which the
fathers' of Israel had walked for 1,300
years; the paths of Abraham, Isaac and
J Jacob; the paths In which the plain
rule of simple life was the decalogue,
and the elaborate rltilal of typical worship was that sacrificial system of
which the essence was an Invincible
faith in a coming) Redeemer; and on
ihe olher hand, there has been declination from the fundamental tenets of
ociimenlcal creeds and councils, Catholic fathers and early centuries. The
Sermon on ihe Mount is called spec-
uliulve and transcendental; miracles
nre the hypnotic results of subconscious subjection; the Incarnation is a
beautiful figure of the mysterious
blending of body nnd mind In human
ity. and the Resurrection and Ascension nre metaphysical abstractions, and
not literal facts. Even our English
language and literature have almost'
lost their deep saturation of Christian
Ideas and Images. Mediaeval phrase
and fable were replete with echoes and
shadows of the Divine Tragedy, stories
of the liiblc and the legends of saints.
Undoubtedly there has been, and Is.
alarming degeneration, while the other
���two scientific possibilities���viz: Bal
ance, which Is Ideal and hypothetic
perhaps; and evolution, which, in ordi
nary nomenclature, is a magical word,
yet, In its real signification and elaboration, is Catholic and orthodox���have
been trodden by tTie saintly feet of the
Scriptural few.
Now. what Is Ihe vera causa of this
lamentable state.and condition? First,
theologically, there is sareologlc solvent. This, in a well-known term, is
evil. Historically, ll is subsequent to
good. Good nnd evil are not coeval.
Evil is a modern degeneracy. In the
fair dawn of the first mornings we
"God snw everything that He had
made, and, behold, It was very good."
Therefore. Divine goodness crowned
material and immaterial creation. Man.
and nil besides, was good: but man
especially was good, both in body and
soul. But. however, as the natural
man Is subject to, and succumbs to
pathological degeneration, so the spiritual man is subject to, and succumbs
to moral degeneration. Such are the
facts, and all analytic and synthetic
processes of human tb'itigbi cannot
resolve the origin an dmystery of Iniquity. There have been many futile
attempts of a philosophical nature, attempted in a serious and orthodox
spirit. And secondly, philosophically,
there is the intellectual solvent. Cultivation and develovment of the intel-
���lectual faculties alone result In universal or historical scepticism, This
Is distinct from particular doubt, which
Is a provisional state of the mind In
search of truth, and which meets with
the approval of St. Paul: "Prove all
From time immemorial this subtle
spirit of doubt nnd Inquiry has been
actual, as well as a potential energy.
Rut, however, since the publication
of tho profound work of lnitnaniiel
Kant, the German metaphysician, criticism has entered Into Its acute nnd
virulent stage. The very essence of
Ihe present age Is criticism and anly-
sis. The human mind faces every-
thing, and, moreover, shakes everything that can be shaken; and after
deliberate reflection, takes calm comfort in the far-reaching though!���everything that enn he shaken ought to be
shaken. Nothing Is too sacred and
holy lo escape the scalpel and micro-
scopo of modern thought. Even, with
blasphemous feet, they approach, with
brazen faces, the consecrated elements
of Ihe Holy Eucharist Itself for a chemical analysis. Such is tho niter abandonment of this sncrillgiotis spirit. l,et
us not close our eyes lo these self-
evident facts and truths.    This subtle
spirit Is found in our homos, our
schools, our universities, In church and
state. And, beloved brethren, the
whole root of this awful matter Is subjective, und not objective; is in the
unit, and not In the whole; In the Individual, and not In the nation. For
the individual, without tho nation, 13
an abstraction, and vice versa. If we
cannot see and feel these obvious, put-
ent manifestations, this Is a further
proof of our moral obloquy.
What Is the specific remedy? One
chid' medicine for the diagnosed ills-
eases of the nineteenth century Is a
bold and unhesitating Inquiry for the
old paths, old doctrines and faith of
Ihe days that are past. What God has
given us from heaven cannot be improved; what man discovers does admit of Improvement. Although error
may often be ancient, yet truth is always old. We want nothing new.
What we need is plain, unflinching
teaching in reference lo the fundamental truths and first principles.
There has never been any spread of
the holy gospel, any conversion of
nations or countries, any successful
evangelistic work, except by the old-
fashioned doctrines of tho early Christians and reformers. **
We cannot speak too strongly of
private devotion and family worship,
if thoree ever is to be a final regeneration of tlie human race, it must emanate from tlie home and family, for
the state is family written large. Is
it too much to say that the prayerful
man is an omnipotent man? Not if the
human will he coincident witii the Divine will.
Hack to tbe old path of the one, the
holy, the Catholic and the Apostolic
church. The Christian cuurch is u
fact, and has a historical, and not a
mythological, origin. It is referred to
by its Divine Pounder us about to be
built upon a Rock. In the Book of the
Acts of the Holy Apostles it lias be
come a living reality, holding a council and making decisions upon most
points of doctrine and practice. And
fiom tbat distant day till tbe present
age her advance has been a brilliant
series of triumphs and victories.
In the saintly language of St. Paul:
"I beseech you, therefore, brethren, by
the mercies of God. that ye present
your bodies a living sacrifice, holy,
acceptable unto God, which is your
reasonable service; and be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind,
thnt ye may prove what. Is that good
and acceptable and perfect will of
