A fire which resulted very'disastrously for J. Owen of the Fernie Annex
occurred al about live o'clock on
'Thursday morning. Mr. Owen was
■ coining down stairs und as lie reached
the bottom slipped and let the lamp
fall. This started the tire, which
-spread so rapidly that the inmates had
barely lime to escape alive.. .-Owing to
the" scarcity of water the firemen were
badly handicapped. ,  .

next (ioor,c\vas the. means of his house
being saved, the firemen having a hard
light lo keep the sparks from setting
fire to the roof of Mr. Wright's. _
The firemen maile a very .quick response and are to be congratulated on
the way they worked throwing snow
■on the fire, and water on'the building
next door to save as much as possible.
Mr. Owen had verv-little insurance
and it is a hard blow to him. -He was
-expecting to sell  the house soon and
return    to   the   old >- country   on   the
proceeds of the sale.
Mr. Savage, one of the .inmates,
had to jump in his night clothes from a
top storey window, and besides being
-quite   shaken   up,  lost  over $100 in
money besides all personal effects.
Mr. Wright wishes us to express his
-appreciation and thanks to the firemen
.and all others who assisted in saving
his property.
The teamsters and the team'
owners met in the Union Hall last

came to an amicable arrangement-.
The. teamsters all returned to Work

express themselves as well satisfied
with the following agreement. The

Strike will be of Short Duration
is General Opinion-President Lewis in Harness
Indianapolis, March 31— Two
hundred and fifty thousand picks
dropped from the hands of as
many bituminous coal miners of
the United States this'evening not
to.be used again until a wage set-
tlement has been reached and a
scale adopted between the members of the. United Mine Workers of
America and the coal operators of
the various fields. The situation
does not indicate a prolonged
strike. An open winter and industrial depression .have left a large
stock of coal on hand and the differences between miners and operators are very slight. It is practically agreed that the present
wage scale will be continued, but
policies in connection with the
change ' to-night in the national
officers of the Miners' organisation
and local differences between the
operators and miners, have result-
ed in temporary suspension from
work until a new wage scale is
agreed to, either by districts or in
dividual mines. Until two years
ago the bituminous coal mine
wage of the country was based upon the agreement reached in the
central competitive field, consisting of Illinois,.Ohio, Indiana and
Western Pennsylvania, considered
as a unit. This unit system was
.broken-two._years_ago_when_presi^,
dent Mitchell ; signed a scale demanded after the operators of the
present wage scale as a minimum,
which failing to agree by districts
the miners were authorised to sign
with the  operators individually.

' Vice president Lewis, who will
succeed prescient luitcneu co-morrow, is u-ying to revive the inter-
scate unit ruie. In tne meantime,
district joint meetings are being
held in the various states. centra*.
.c-eniisyivania" ana the blocK coal
district of Indiana, "Cluy county,
are the "only two districts that
have settled up. Indiana operators and miners in session at Torre
Haute are adjusting their small
differences ,*-.ud have decided to
continue at work pending a settlement. There will be no strike
in'this section.
The Illinois district meeting' at
Springfield has not reached an
agreement, but the relations between the opposition interests are
friendly.
Western Pennsylvania has not
reached an agreement' and the
mines close down, throwing out of
work 30,000 men. The Ohio min-
eses will close also as no agreement has been reached. The
southwest district represeentatives
consisting of Missouri, Kansas,
Oklahoma, Texas and Arkansa
City and it is said these-miners
will be idle for a time; 35,000
men' are affected.
The miners of Kanawhafield, in
West Indiana are holding their
joint meeting at Huntington and
while no agreement has been arrived at, one is expected. The
new river Pocahontas and Fairmont fields are non union and not
affected. West Virginia and Kentucky miners and operators will
continue operations, it is believed
pending a settlement.
President elect Lewis of the miners   national    organisation,    said
this   evening    he  would make no
move   for several' days.    He says
that   he   will await the attempts
that .are now in progress in"' various districts to reach some kind,
of conclusion before he began   to
work    out   his plans.   He is still
in hopes of reinstating the     joint
relations between the miners . and
operators of Indiana,  Ohio, ^west-
ern. Pennsyvania and Illinois  and
the - indications are that -he will
call an interstate joint conference
within—th~e—next"two—weeks"   ae"
will not convene the new national
legislative , board for at least    a
week.     He was not ready to-day
to announce his appointments but
it'became known, that tho office of
national statistician held by Chris
Evans, will be abolished and it is
understood that Samuel Sexton is
to be retired-.as,editor of the United Sti-nVSa orkers' Journal.

Alberta! Government Buys Out
Bell Telephone Company
COMMUNICATIONS
Montreal, April 2-Hon. W. H.
Cushing, minister of public works
for the province, of Alberta, has
on behalf of the government; concluded an agreement with President Sise ,of the Bell Telephone
company of Canada for the purchase , of the lines of the company
in the province of Alberta, the
price to be paid being $675,000.
The, Bell .Company at first demanded $750,000 but Mr. Cushing
secured a reduction to the price
stated and considers he made a
good bargain, . and better than
that of the Manitoba ■ govermeat.
He expected that now,the Saskatchewan government',' would purchase the company's lines in that
province and thus the whole of the
telephone lines in the three,provinces would be state, owned. Mr.
Cushing at once "telegraphed the
officials to take possession^ the
company's plant, and this will be
done at midnight -to-night.

To discuss live issues of the |day
is excellent because by' so doing
we can progress toward . higher
ideals, the printed word has great
influence over the thoughts of the
reader therefore we should at all
times be dispassionate in our utterances, refrain from sarcasm and
whilst differing in opinions be corneous one to another.
To raise a laugh at the expense
of an adversary may tickle our
self esteem but it is not conducive
to a better understanding of the
serious questions that are in the
forefront to-day. This is good enough for a preamble, so, now to
the heart of my purpose, viz, the
immigration . problem."We don't
want the class of people the Salvation Army,is bringing in because
they will bring down the scale of

man has a perfect right to leave
one country and enter another,
therefore two men have, the same
privilege] consequently any number of men and women- may do
likewise, that the Salvation Army'
enters into the question as factors
in their introduction to the country nowise depreciates .the justice
of the contention nor interferes
with the. logic of the assertion.
Let me be clearly understood. I
hold no brief nor am I' an apologist, for the Salvation Army but
simply wish to present the matter
as it appears to' me without bias
or predjudice of any kind and will
be grateful to, any who will show

men*'' and as the socialist members
of the British Columbian legislature are willing rto voice their
ideas, , they naturally allow them
to do ^so, but the reverend gentleman is committing the grossest
error if. he thinks that the'working men of the Kootenay country
are anarchists! No, Bev. Sir, they
are not even Revolutionists^ but
assuredly. they are Evolutionists
and are determined to evolve something equable, andv better for
themselves, out of the social
wreck they see around them,, and
will use their votes for that purpose.

which she risked her own life'. Numerous incidents of like character could-be
cited, .but for the, present this will
suffice. He gives us ' to understand
that in his state of anarchy "millionaires
would be an impossibility, and debauchery and drunkenness could never exist."
Can he account for the fact that in communities where unselfishness ,<-"that
never sleeps" prevails, these very three
evils are uuknown?<-•_, "For nineteen
hundred years altruism has accomplished little either in the art or science of
life." What our prophet means by the
"art and ecience of life" we cannot say,
and moreover he is a little mixed in his
dates, but we can give him this guide
in his future researches, that the why
and wherefore ut our accomplishments
is not to be found in ethics but In
economics.
HE
"The dark spot in British Columbia is the   Kootenays, according to     the statements of
Bev. H.   B.   Magee,   associate
secretary     of   temperance and
moral    reform   for the Methodist church,   who has just returned from an eight weeksvisit
'  to  British Columbia,  Alberta,
and Saskatchewan.   There,    in
the   Kootenay   country,    - he
says, the labor conditions tend
to   make   the    people Godless
and   irreligious,   the extremes
of atheistic, anarchistic socialism are  rampant      and     the
."brothel and the whiskey shop .
go together to degrade men."
Are we to infer from the above
that the labor men in the Kootenay country are ■unorganised?'^ 'If
they - are unorganised we could
■well understand , that a hopeless
co-oditioh of laboring, without ad
equate 'reward,    would   tend   to
make   labormen    Godless,  irreligious,    and go to the extremes' in
every way, for did not the Holy
One of Nazareth say "The laborer
is worthy of his-hire"'and a hopeless man must be a Godless man,
as, Visa versa,* a_ Godfearing man
will   always 'be "a * hopeful man.
. There is no question' that -w519, it
, not for the labor unions' and, lab--
or organisations, the condition of
, the " working-*ma'nwb-uld" be unbearable,.as .with   the    trusts on

With the 81st of March John Mitehcl1
and Billy Wilson sever their official
connection with the United Mine Workers. Former Vice-President T. Lewis
as president, J. P. White, of Iowa, as
vice-president, and W. D. Rjan as
secretary-treasurer, are now the chief
officials of our union. These men take
over the organization at a critical
moment. The country is still experiencing hard limes despite the attempt
of the capitalist press to raise the wind
by whistling-.
The operators have refused to meet
the miners in joint convention and
everytbing.points to ah attempt to reduce wages. The miners are not likely
to submit to this without a struggle,
and should a struggle ensue at this
time it will require much good generalship to effect a victory.   '
The, organization. under Mitchell's
administration has gained the reputation of being very conservative. Wilson,
who contested with Lewis for the
presidency, expressed himself as a be:
liever in Mitchell's policy when appealing to the electors, avowing that if
elected be would endeavor to continue
it. He was defeated by a little over
2,000.
Lewis.the radical, was elected, and
he now appears to resent that title.
Lewis is known to tbe western locals of
District 18, and is not -looked upon as
extraordinarily radical by them. But
then, what is strong meat in tbe east is
small potatoes in the west.
' The rank and file, however,.in the
last analysis, determines the policy of
most new officials, "andr from'unmis-
_takeable,j_ien_BJt_i8iOb_viou8-that_the
Selfishness, we are told, is the power
of getting what we want. Is it! Well,
we are pleased to learn that much from
our master of correct English', although
it conflicts with ordinary etymologists
definitions.
3 Here is another gem. "Men absolutely
selfish of the perfections of their bodies,
the cleanliness' snd > elevation of their
minds would have no evil desires and
sin would become an anachronism.'
That involves the hypothesis that what
we understand as sin is something
specific, which it is not We all have
our own ideas of what is morally wrong.
For instance, we, following the concepts
of our moral code might refuse a drink
—cries of blasphemy—or we might buy
one—oh, monstrous, or it might happen
that in a moment of weakness we should
make an honest attempt to' do that
for "which we were receiving pay—loud
cries of "crucily him" you observe the
disapproval which the mere mention of
such practices draws forth.' - What
would be the consequence of tbe actual
committal thereof, we fear even to contemplate. Here is one still better.
Selfishness would (and you know it
does control Hie) and each life as it
could, not correct It would not propar
gate Well, wouldn't that jar you, as
the South Sea Islander said whon an
earthquake tore bis island asunder'.'
,We know that outside of. capitalistic
controlled communities, selfishness
controls neither man, brute.ory insect,
sav'e.in a few cases, and woalso,'k'uow
that even in civilized countries when
men and women are away, from the
influence of capitalism', selfishness does

" Since the starling of the Co-Opera-

their way,by, various parties and firms,
the directors, by their judicious man**

their, business to the, extent of $1,000
per 'month.' The feature most • detrimental to the movement is the short
■sighted policy persisted, in by a good

of joining the society and giving it
their-full .support,.they make their
purchases at the prlvnte stores, thereby
playing directly into the hnnds of
private individuals to put Ihe movement

owing to the fact that there    are'

team owners who are in the association on the 28th of March  and
discussed the agreement and    adjourned to meet again on Monday

were present three of the association   committee and three outside

owners the right to report to their
body.    They*did sb and on Tuesday evening teamsters and    team
owners met again and the answer
given to the teamsters was to the
effect that after tho scale of wages
from outside towns had been got,
they   would meet them,    Then at
special request of the owners there
was a meeting arranged for Thursday evening.   On arriving at the
appointed     meeting*     place    the
teamsters found only two of   the
owners present and the teamsters
refused to do   businoss,   on    the

state that they would not moot

John On.His Way To Calgary To

THAT a piece of copy entitled,
"The Lady That Trbta On Snow-

very pleased to receive contributions, but draws the line at such

THAT the approach to the C.P.*.

THAT he would like to see a
better means of fire protection for
the people of the Annex. He thinks
that our city fathers might take
this matter up at once and see
what they can do to protect that
portion of our, city.

- THAT he heard a rumor to the
effect   that    there   was a show in
town.   When Mr. Stevens was the
manager of the opera house he always  called  and gave  us passes,
and in return we '"wrote up" tho
shows.   Tbe  present management,
however,   do   not    as    yet under- :
stand the old time usage, so   wa.
refrain from saying a word about'
the   show.      Perhaps   when    thev

LABORERS' UNION
Xr. T. Bigg" organised a local
union of laborers in Fernie on
Monday the 30th instant at the
Owl restaurant when 21 members
w#r# 'Wi rolled en A ffc
omeart appointed;
T. A, Ambrose, President.
William . Thompson, Vice Presi*
dint.
Frank Adams, Recording Sacre*
tary.
•Jamek saUvrrtas, Secretary Irens-
unr.
A. W, Colpsman, Quids.
Sydney Hume,  Guardian.
A meeting will be held on Saturday evening at 6 o'clock at the
Owl restaurant for th* purpose of
tee-jiving nsw members and further
business.
We would like to see the following unions with locals here,     and
then     the     list would be, almost-
complete:      '■•■■'.'     •    ■*  -:-
Clerks Union       .-.,,;
,Millmens'n.Union ,'v    "    ,        , '.'. .-■'
- Loggers Union >    . , ■■,   ..
Bartenders Union
Barbers Union
Plasterers,        Bricklayers      and'.
Masons Union
' -Electrical  Workers  Union
Railroad,, Trainmens Union.
' Tinsmiths Union '       '
Of course the above are all well
represented, and we think there
would be enough to form locals.
Lethbridge makes the boast' that
it is the best organised union town
in th© west, but we are of the opinion that Fernie can beat it as
far as numbers go at least, and
we would like to sec 'more ot tho
above mentioned unions with
locals here.
And as the unionism is ever on
the increase we think that our
merchants ought to cater a little
more to the union label goods; Of
course we recognise the difficulty
the merchants have and,think they
have done as good as possible in
the past, but no doubt they will
see the advantage of dealing even
more than ever in the union brand
in all lines in the future.
What is the most popular thing
in Fernie to-day?. Unionism. Ask
for the union label.

Man Who Threw Explosive Ad-
;mits Guilt but Refuses: ?
to Talk Further
New York, March 30-^-The .whole
city', is agitated over the .developments of '. the anarchist - .plot to
blow up the police Squad which
broke up 'the demonstration of the
unemployed in Union' sq.uare Saturday, resulting in' the death of
one.anarchist and-the-fatal wounding of the bomb •' thrower-by a
, premature explosion. A" large
num-her of arrests were made last
night and-to-day.''
The' wounded "anarchist ■ refuses
to name his associates, though admitting his part freely iri-the conspiracy,. ,'.;..  ,'/;V „
Like,-.the Haymarket massacre-of
.Chicago a quarter of a century,
ago, the outrage yesterday is said
to have been ,pfbyoked by a lurid
~newspaper-rarticle-in-a-rabid-anar-
chist sheet—the ;Work, an East
side Yiddish paper.,--: The article,-,
which the police hold-chiefly responsible for the attack yesterday
is-Aheaded;;".?"Out;+to -the. Hunger
March," and ;is, an appeal for the.
Sunday gathering at which the
bomb was thrown.   It says:
Defy The Police.-
V'The   workmen ' of  New'   York,
Brooklyn   and   Brownsville    will
, stand on the streets' so that these
dirty rich should see and sympathise",','
"It will, be a showing of the terrible hunger and the barest poverty mixed with pain, a crisis and
begging protest,
° '"Ten thousand of workmen who
are" martyrs to the pangs of hunger, for, months, together, with the
frail, weak wives and innocent
children will "go out from their
dji'rtt and stuffy * tenement holes
and to a~ dangerous war, They
will ask that their terrible cries of
"we want bread!' shall be hoard.
,"Itiwill be a dangerous hunger
march,. a big protest demonstration, the biggest of Its kind  that
New York ever saw.'1
i    "i     ,. ...  .,
-'That,servant of capital; the park
commissioner, and a few labor fa*
kirs,' have quietly* planned how
thoy can suppress the cry of a half
a million of people and their hun*
gry families that* are in New York,
Brooklyn 'and Brownsville., Their
devilish plan has availed them no*
thing.
Call 'Em Robbers.
The Socialist party And tha un*
ions have.agreed together to protest against this robber band,
which has.trickily brought about
this present crisis and ask that
the state sball provide tho hungry
with work.
"The police date not and cannot suppress this. Ths law allows it and a few false friends of
the workmgmsn cannot stop it.
"Saturday is the day. Two o'clock in the afternoon. Then there
will corns together the stricken
people - of this crisis in Union
Square.

lbng hungry idler, you park dwel*
Isrs and street -wanderers,

is*coming to you with,Justice,"
Fear; Other Attacks.
Tn tho Wall stmt section of the
city special precaution was taken
to*day to wateh suspicious ehar*
aeters. Th* Aoorn of Morgan's
hsadq'uarters and ths Standard
Oil building wsrs doubly watched.
Fetirs nre entertained of an outbreak of rsds in revenge for ths
energetic action of the police hers
,, uul   because of President Rooac-
velt's "utterances in"Washington.
All shabbily dressed persons in the
stock exchange" are being watched.
Bomb Crude Affair.
The bomb itself appears' to have
been filled with tenpenny nails and
button's. ■   Fragments'   picked,,'up
around the scene of the explosion
indicate > that these together with
, , --,'*•'
the explosive used, were placed.in
an  "oval"   covering .,of thin' sheet
brass.
'  Several-witnesses said .that;they
saw sparks coming, from the bomb
just , before    it  exploded',   ^ which
makes  it  practically  certain that
it was set off by means of a fuse,
and'that the explosive used'' was
gun powder. ->
■ -That the loss of life -was not
greater is due to a! combination' of
fortunate cii-cumstances. ,       * '..-,. .
Had the .bomb exploded-half an
hour' earlier the chances are that
several more persons would have
been, killed. '
■ As it .was, nearly everybody' in
the park had been driven out- by
the police.     '.-   ■    ,   '. \"   '  ■■ '
It had been , a• trying afternoon
both for-the. police and the thoii*;
sands who had,been trying, to hold
a meeting1, but'it seem'ed,; at * three
o'clock as,,if.' things were pretty
,well clearejd^up.^;;' ,;. ..
jJFixe_J3^nu^s^la*^_wheit the ;ex-
plosion took place,' excepting " the
police, there were not more than a
dozen persons within the limits of
the<-'park; ■-.. .„*.-.•-.. -. -    *■ -
| Around the'"deaid"-fountain in
the,centre;of the park,was.a:little
group of half a'.down persons' who
somehow1 or other had escaped thai

driven'out.-" ,,. •,•->: >-'.. ;•....-
-The bomb thrower: and his companions' were 'among .these';'-'.,;
rNotrnfteen'feet away. stood*;Cap-
tain Miles O'Eeilly, of the "Mercer
street station. He was lining up
twenty men > from his; station and
was about to give them'the order
to "march back to the'station.'It
was at: O'Reilly and his men that
Dilverstein aimed., his bomb, but
whether from fright' or bad Judgment he held it too long.
The-meeting was planned by the
leaders of* the so-called unemployed conference' of the Socialist-party! prominent in whose councils
have been .Morris Hillquit and H.
Hunter, once hoad worker of the
university settlement and formerly . of Chicago, and now husband
of the* former Miss Caroline Stokes
a sis tor.of Qv Phelps Stokes.
Mr, Hunter himself was in the
crowd that tried to hold the meeting and marched around the side
streets for somo time before becoming convinced that the police
would, not give way.
This ovening he denounced the
troatmont of the crowd by the po-
lico by saying that it was an outrage. He was specially severe on
tho way the mounted police ran
into the crowd.
Police are defied.
He admitted that inspector Bch*
mittbergsr, who was in eommand
of tho police, bad told him. that
there could not be any speaking
because no permit had been obtained.
X told Inspector Schmittberger,
said Mr. Hunter, "that I guessed
we'd"lhave to "make an effort to
speak anyway."

By Rev.   J. Peter „ Brunner in
,.    the Christian Socialist,.
Baptists in the past have been
pioneers in the struggle for liberty! They fought for,religious liberty and likewise for political liberty without which, as they foresaw
the former could not" exist, True'
to their- history Baptists should
again.be in the foreground-when
both religious and1 political .- liberty are endangered .by economic
enslavement. . '*
.Socialism , is coming to deliver
us from economic bondage, and
Baptists should not find it difficult to accept its ' principles, because .many of them -are found
right in our own church policy
and all we need to do is to apply
them to our economic life.
1., Take, for instance, our condition of membership. It is based
on absolute equality. The, only required condition is evident, of a
right.relation with God professed
in Baptism. ,No economic, social
1 or , political5 question enters in.
Young or old j rich or poor, educated 'or not, high or low, all
who would join-a Baptist.church
must enter through the same,door.
This Socialistic^principle. of equality isvcontinued as long as membership- lasts. .Pastors, .deacons,'
trustees,, superintendents--, . and
whatever" other officers .there may.
be. -" have   "as   many   rights and

A. T. Hamilton-, Proprietor      :
Telephone   1 . Next King Edward Hotel
,- of v'commons,) by "ah "overwhelming
majority,"'declared itself in favor
of* home .rule.'-- Gladstone's^ bill-of-
!1886 'was rejected by a; majority
of.30. His bill in 1893, was.carried by-'"a'majority,' never beyond
40," and,^ on^rta^n^ani>|ndj^ents>>it
ldeJre&s'*^™-torfr^ re-,
"solutions in favor of .home rule last
„ evening.;werei,carried- by a* majority., of' J5G.   This result,is the.more
remarkable when", thei terms :of the
resolution are considered.- It   was
no,t , a-resolution • in.-favor* of a
haif   .way, house, or of a revolution; it puts the home rule claim
in its frankest   and fullest form,,
, for it demanded a parliament    in
Dublin, and an executive responsible to that parliament. Both   the
spokesmen of the ministry not only   pledged   themselbes ', but the
whole Liberal    party is for home
rule.    Secretary   Birrell, had said
that, the Liberal   party' was, the
home rule party.   Mr. Asrtuitb denied   bio   unalterable    conviction
that home rule was the only 'settlement of the Irish question. Every single member of the administration," including   not only Mr.
Aaquith, secretary Birrell and Jno,
Motley, but Sir Edward Grey and
secretary Haldane, voted for the
resolution. -   They   only proffered
the condition that they -were precluded by measure in this parliament on the question as to the position home rule should occupy in
the program of the Liberal party
at the next eleotion.   The ministers   declared  that  this depended,
not upon them, but upon the Irish
people .and the Irish,party.     We
Accept, this,"   concluded Mr, Red*
mond, "and ths business of the Irish   people will bo to take action
in Ireland, Great Britain and the
bouse of commons, as will   keep
tha question in the forefront    of
political issues."
4. Our worship-also belongs to
the worshippers in that it is-,not.
conducted for-them.but by them..
It is not-sacredotal'; but coven-
e'ntal. It. is. . not,,, a .priesthood
coming "to God for the people, but
privileges" as'' other, members "but
no,more. Of a Baptist church, it
.can1 truly„_be,said "equal rights tb
all,  special \privileges >'t'o"■ none." ii
,2. Then look' atv our church:
government.' .'Our'officers are "our
servants.. ..-.Pastors,-, deacons ., and
other,"officers'are elected by .'.'universal suffrage.". If our servants'
are efficient their services are ap**.
predated; if not, we, may .exercise
the ' power of the "imperative
mandate" or "recall." We also
exercise: the {(•'initiative" and the
"referendum." Any number of
•memlbers of any church ' may ° inaugurate new. undertakings in' accordance" with1 our great constitution, the. New ^Testament. These
may be given' to a committee for
further consideration or formula*
tion, but nothing becomes a. law
until again referred to the members, of the local churches which
by - majorities adopt or. reject.
Witness , the recently, organized
Northern Baptist Convention. The
idea was launched by individuals
freely discussed in press and pulpit, ' a temporary organization ef*
fected, and now the whole matter
lies before tho local churches to
bo voted upon by thorn for final
disposition. >
' There is' the Initiative and Be*
ferendum pure and simple.
3 Then there are our ordinances (we have no sacraments),
baptism and communion. These
are "not mystical instruments In
the hands of an organised hierarchy with which to bestow or
withhold divine blessings; no.
thoy aro instruments in the hands
of tho members by which thoy express and emphasize fraternal fellowship. They aro symbols ol
brotherhood. By baptism we en-
tor into this relation and by com*
munlon wo express its continuance,
AN AD IAN/-)-*
>-PACIFIC AY.
a .brotherhood -coming' directly to
the.Father with-   no one between;
them. " ■      „
■-. .-',"-'.*•'. ■■   '     '•.->'  'V   .-'      .'
.5,   Observe, too, our mission .to
the world, as we-conceive of it.
Our churches."are not an end in
themselves but rather a means to
an end!' The' end in *riew'is the
Kingdom of God.upon -this earth,
in which the, principles of, equality, justice and brotherhood shall
be, as natural in human ^relations
as water and air are necessary to
hodily existence.-
We live as churches to serve
humanity.' by saying individuals
and society.
6. Co-operation is ' another
principle not foreign to the Baptist mind. How loosely we seem
to be organized without any central governing body,' and yet how
effectively ' do we work together
through our great missionary societies in tho North and through
the boards in the South. A dozen
or so of really good corporations,
organized not for profit but for
the welfare of humanity. ■
Hero, then, aro some Baptist
principles which Socialists hold in
common with us; equality universal suffrage, intiative, referendum
and imperative mandate; brotner-
hood, service and *o*oporution,
Ndw when I call these piinciples
Socialistic I do uot moan that wo
havo learnt them from Socialists.
However, I do mean to say that
they take these principles which
we have adopted to conduct our
spiritual affairs and desire to apply them to the entire life.
Therefore we, as,Baptists who
havo long lived under and by
thoso principles, and who would
fight for them with our very lives,
should bo prepared by training to
understand them and be ready to
aid in the effort to take the principles of life of our Lord outside
of the church walls and the eon*
flnos of roligious endeavor and ap-
ply them in the wide sphere of our
social and economic affairs.
