-   . IS IX HERESY?.
OBte oi the most strikiug, ii not the
mo»t. suiting, featnre of the Methodist conference lately held at Vernon,
wan tic, theological nuion lecture de-
.livered by our Fernie pastor, liev. il.
J'anhley HaU. ,
This lecture was of such a nature
a* to draw forth -widespread comment, und sonic of the most conservatives .the ministry were (iuite
shocked by the rteJical stand taken by
Rev. Hall, iu& he stands very close
to the line which ot old was drawn
to dicinguish between the Orthodox
Lelitl and the obnoxious heretic. .But
the trend of thought in the theological world has been changing along
_ with the' rajud changes "which are tak
ing pltux iu ali branches of thought,
.and what would have been considered
suicidal in Rev. Hall a score of-years,
ago now meets with" approval lroin
within as well as without the circles
ol ■ Uie Methodist  church.
Those'who have heard"Pastor Hall
preach very, often are not'surprised
to hear of his masterly handling ol
the weightiest subject which was dis-
euss(d before so intelligent aii audience. He has long ben known as the
■''■indent" 61 the ■ British Columbia
eiml'eivnee, and the praise he has won
l.y his latest eilort'is gratifying to
those-who know Mini" ""The Christian
Guardian of the 7th has this to say
of the lecture: -'
■ "..Saturday evening was devoted tb
the delivery,of the theological anion
lecture, ihe lecturer being Rev. i,ash-
ley Hall, 1!:A., B.D., of-Fernie. The
subject was* ''The Continuity "of Revelation," and without doubt -the lec-
$ xau* "was • the' .most scholarly, comprehensive and able that we have evei
heard deliveied under the auspices ol
a theological .union.
1,-     "it was  somewhat  long  and  heavy
 for ft^populur .audieuce,_i_but—of_jts,
. genuine    value   und   excellence    there
couid,bnS'no doubt."
--■    We take  lhe lollowiug from  tbe-, re-
' port   oi the    coniereuce    published in
the   Vancouver   Province:
"The lecture, delivered by Rev.
'Umliley llall 011 Saturday night caused a - mild sensation, requiring over
three hours iii delivery anil dealing
in tne spirit ol higher criticism witli
the "subject ol "Continuity of Revelation.", It was marked throughout
,, with evidences oi ripe scholarship anil
keen  biblical  interpretation. ,
•'It refuted the old theory oi literal inspiration in the Did Tcsiaiiu-ul
in a logical and convincing maimer.
Had it been delivered in the east instead of at the more broad-minded
conference ol ilritish Columbia, - it
would have provoked  uti uproar,
IU1.', Air. Hall has l/Ccii requested
by many who heard Uie leetuiu - to
have it published in book form,"
'Ihciij   ure     commendations      irom
competent   souices, but   the recipient
hoe earned Ilium, and wears ■ his laur-
" els with the modesty which is a part
of those  who achieve.

,The Uoctors of Mount Clemens Institute Proves the Value of These Tills
iu the Cusc' of Mr. S. Harris, Government lbspector of Elevators at
Hamilton,  Ont.
From the Slar, Dundas", Ont.
We were much pleased to see Mr,-
S. Harris, the well :known government inspector of elevators of,, Hamilton, in Dundas the ..other 7'day,
greatly improved in health, and--.appearance since the last time ' we met
him. As is known to many of the
Star readers, Mr. Harris has recov--
erod From a long and.severe illness",
and is nowoquite able , to attend his
usual duties." From this long ..illness
many , predicted Mr." Harris7 would
never recover, am^ the fact that he is more aide , to go around very
nearly "as spry eis he' did before j he
was attacked, is little., less than marvellous to them.
In reply to our -. reporter, Mr. Har:
r's related the early stages of the'at-
t ck and subsequent sufferings which
le  experienced,  and while he    did^not

p.lying    nil   .the   remedies  . externally
lhat he could hear  or   think   of,'   . he
wus unable to get rid-of; it. The sti fill ss"iiii)ve'd'to",thc  s"pine  and shoulders, then   to his    hips, until it niadc
almost a cripple of him, and it  was
with extreme difficulty   that he could
Ket out  of  bed at all.   As  for walking, it was out of the question   with
him:   The attack became so bad that
he waa unable  to-put "on  either    his,    vest or hat.     1'rom    tithe    to
time    he    callud in various    medical
nu-n, none of whom were able to give
him much nrlief. ,.It was almost impossible for   liim to    raise    his feet
from ,   the floor,- and  (ill  pronounced
him a severe case of musculo1;  'rheumatism,  giving  hiin' little' encouragement     ni  to his    ultimate recovery.'
Howevi-r,     one    medical    gentleman-
finally iiiciiinmcnded lhe liaths, and as
a last resort  Mr.  Harris decided'  to
follow his advice and went toMbunt
Clemens, Mich.   As is customary with
all  patients, Mr, Harris had to   undergo a thorough examination  iu order    tu    duterniine if the system    can
stand   this rigorous  treatment.   After
m vera I examinations had been   made
ns tn i\lr, Harris' condition, the physicians   (hire   finally decided   that   lie
was imi Milkt'iiiji from muscular rheu-
iiiatisiu at all,  but that his ailment
was ol the iiuI'vch, and tols him that
the laths would do,him little   or no
