Why We Are Protestants Subject of Sermon at Methodist Church
The members of the Grange Order
Attended service in a body at ths
Methodist churcb on Sunday evening, when a special discourse was delivered by Rev. Lashley Hall. In addition to the anthem by the ch dr
and a solo by Mrs. Walter Dews two
sacred selections were given by members of the Rex orchestra. Pray il'
was offered by the Rev. E.S, E •'• rt a,
of the Baptist college, Sumtn
formerly of Vancouver.
The discourse dealt with the question 'Why we are Protestants.' Protestantism distinguishes between the
people of a community, the members
of a churcb, and the political or
ecclesiastical system under which
they live, -aid Mr. Hall. The interest of the country or community may
call fur thorough going criticism .ef
the system, with the utmost regard
Ior the people. Protestantism bases
on solemn affirmations, putting emphasis mi certain aspects of truth,
and taking issii? on certain positions
regarded as grave errors.
There was very much on which Protestants and all Christendom was
agreed more than was generally sup-
jiosed. All believe in God and in
Jesus Christ. Nine tenths of the
fundamental truth that springs from
the initial affirmation is common to
all. Protestants affirm the direct relation of the believer tei t'i ri it, direct access of the a  to Q "1. without any other mediation except that
of the Lord ' Protestants affirm the absolute supremacy of
lhe Holy Scriptures for authority in
matters nf faith, ami ..re fundamentally and unalterably opposed to any
individual being arbiter in such matters, whether speaking ex cathedra or
pot. Every conscience is answerable
to God. Every individual is answerable for himself.
The grounds of divergence between
Protestants and others were traversed, in part. Protestantism goes back
beyond Luther, Huss, Wicllf, and begins in a movement of protest, gathering momentum as it goes—a movement which makes appeal to tbe
Holy Scriptures. which affirms the
light of the individual to bc free, the
right of private judgment in the
eight of God, and which stands
squarely against all forms of ecclesiastical oppression.
Reference vas made to separate
■schools, to Bourassa and the French
Canadian regime, and to the distribution in Canada of a certain flag
which is giving offence. Temporal
power and the present European
Struggle, with the case of Belgium,
were referred to in relation tei the
papal chair. If ever there was a time
in the history of the world when
protest should have been made, this
was Dee time lint it, was left to Pro-
testants to make the protest and to
mingle (heir blond with that of their
Catholic brethr-n in behalf of their
rights, In a struggle which was lor
the  liberation of the world.

The following    letter     from  R. F.
Green,  M.P.,  regarding  the  manufacture of shells was read:
His  Worship Mayor Foote,
Revelstoke, B. C.
Dear Mr. mayor,—I have just returned front Ottawa, and hasten to
drop you a line supplementing my
telegram to you from Ottawa re the
question of utilizing tbe Canadian
Pacilic railway shops at Revelstoke
for the manufacture of shells, and
•nay say that I found—when I got to
Ottawa—that the whole shell situation was very unsatisfactory.
The shell committee had let cm-
tracts for millions ef empty shells,
but had been unable t" furnish tbe
I tanks (which is material for making
them out of) in anything like tbe
quantities necessary to keep the
tactories already at work goinj, and
that now, while it would not aflect
the contracts already let, there was
no hope of letting new contracts
rnless the government were in
a position to Snd somebody
to manufacture cases, fulminating
caps, fuses, and the necessary explosives and fillinir, so that these
totild all be assembled at some central point, and complete shells could
he fniwarded to Great Britain. The
r.hell committee were therefore not in
a position to discuss with me the
possibility nf giving any further contracts which might enable the wrks
at Revelstoke tn be used for that
'purpose, but, as Sir Thomas Shaugh
nessy had been appointed Canadian
purchasing agent for the Imperial
government, I thouzht that if you
people were to take this matter up
with him, vou mieht arrange with
him to take steps to see that work of
some description was given to the
.Revelstoke shops so as to assist in
relieving the unemployment within
your district. I had hoped to bave
seeD sir Thomas Shaughnessy myself
before leaving the cast, but found
that I had to return before he ar-
iived from Great Britain.
I remain,
Yours faithfully,
Victoria. B.C., July 6,  1915.

Al a meeting nf the Mountain Lumber Manufacturers' association held
in Calgary on Thursday, $5000 was
vol ed for the purchase of machine
muis foi the 54tll battalion of British Columbia. CD. McNab, the pro
bideni of the association, was authorized to place the funds at the disposal  of   the   military   authorities.
At an enthusiastic and representative meeting of the citizens of Green-
iwood and district it was "decided    to
'present a machine gem to the 54th,
Kootenay-Boundary battalion. Col.
Davis, commanding officer, was communicated with for further instructions  regarding the     matter.    Kam-
jloops is also supplying a gun and other cities in  Kootenay have taken up
the  proposal.
Patriotic   and   wealthy   citizens  and
1.ml institutions of the Dominion who
desire to do their bit for the cause
'of the allies in the war are Informed
by the militia department at Ottawa, that tbey cannot do it better
thm i.y   the   contributions nf money
fur machine gnus. Machine guns ami
neei" machine tuns is the cry of the
militia department. Those who desire
to so assist are told that whatever
number are supplied will be over and
above the complement with which the
Canadian battalions are eijuiiipcd. It
is stated that the government has
placed heavy orders for machine
guns, though It is understood that
machine min factories are working at
capacity turning out this arm of the
service for the allied countries.

our army forced on us at the very
beginning, All we wanted from outside to produce plenty of shellB was
some steel, which we have bought in

the Iron-working district of
France is still in the hands of the
Germans, along with its most important manufacturing plants, France

The Victorian, the latest addition
to the newspapers of British Columbia, seems, notwithstanding the hard

which is well merited both on account of the brightness of the sheet

seas of journalism during tbe )ir'>

Man" of British Columbia journalism
is the man at the wheel. "Never hefore" he snys has thc Victorian's
manager "engaged in a newspaper enterprise where such satisfactory progress has heen made in so short a
time. And this too, In the face of the

Premier   Addresses   Victoria
Board of Trade on   Important Subject
A large number of importunt ques-
• tions were brought up Ior consideration at the quarterly meeting of the
Victoria board ol trade, with Col.
the Hon. E. G. Trior in the chair.
During the proceedings Sir Richard
McBride addressed ihe meeting and
gave a comprehensive account of his
activities while in the Old Country
towards Improving the trade relations between British Columbia and
i.tber countries. Sir Richard gave
special attention to the transportation problem and the lumber s.tuu-
tion, which are now considered to bo
the most Important questions con-
'ronting the province.
Sit   Richard's Address.
Sir Richard begau his address with
.a reference t.i tbe war in which the
empire is participating, and gave an
account of his own personal observations made during his recent journey
to England nnd France. The first
thing that he had noticed was the
vrim determination with which the
British people were facing the hard
conditions brought about by the war.
While it was Impossible to conjecture the probable length of the war,
us the Becond year of its duration approaches the ditliculty had increased
"Perhaps," he said, "some people
say there have not been enough victories gained ly the allies, but it
must be realized that everything in
this war has been more or less
• ovelty to our troops. Now

manoeuverlrfg and greater speed of the aeroplane it can readily soar ever
of a the dirigible and drop these "Flechettes" on the gas bag nnd probably
however   explode  the enemy's craft.

Transjiortation Problem.
During his stay in England he hnd
been active in explaining that the one
creat requirement for British Colum-
tia was transjiortation facilities.
From Portland Canal to the lilth parallel, the coast, from an industrial
standpoint, had no equal. Even if
there was no hinterland, the coastal
strip would he one of the most valuable parts nf thi world. The forests,
fisheries and mines held an in-'xhaust-
ible store of wealth. All that was
neided was ships with which to carry bigger business in Trail this June ployed. Silvirle.d concentrates are
.way the produce to foreign lands,
for without being able to barter and
trade, the province's assets were useless. "If we could get a sufficient
number of vessels." said Sir Richard, "we could send t'i Kurope more
lumber than ever before. Lumber is
needed by Prance, Italy and tbe British Isles, ami in large quantities."
Because ol their proximity   to   the   turns  not
Id world, it was possible for the lucrative.
Maritime j-rovinces to dispose of ..
large quantity of their produce and
consequently enjoy industrial prosperity. They had a sufficient number
of schooners nnd small steamers to
do the work.
While British Columbia shipping
men could not complain when the
British government took over vessels
the national government would have
to take up the matter at some future
time. Next to the war, the question
■f transportation was the most im-
portant for the concentration of
thought nt tbe present time, especially in this province, He thought
