AN ABLE   LECTURE
On "The Bible,   What It 9
What It Teaches, and How
It May Be  Read."
Last in Series of Lectures Delivered
Monday Night by Rev. Mr. Conn
to Appreciative Audience.
The Rev. J. Thurburn Conn delivered
hi? last lecture for the present reason to
a large audience in the Court House on
Mondav night. These lectures ha\e
been the means of furnishing 1 i.rhly in
Ftructive and inteies ing entertainment
to those who have attendtd and their resumption will be looned forward to with
pleasure.
The subject dealt with on Monday
evining was "The Bible, what it is, what
it teaches, and how it may be read."
In opening, Mr. Conn proved the Bible
to De a religious revelation, not a scis n-
tific one, and in coming to it we must
bring more than ou: science or nac;
we mil11 bring faith in its author. Devotion to Him wil que :en study and sli dy
r ghtly Dirsued will i lcrease love If
we believe in God, and that He created
all things, than all things can be religiously studied.
What is the Bible? was the first po:nt
to gome under review. The Bible, declared the lecturer, is the word of God
that is. It is a Divine-human book, rs
our Lord Jesus Christ is a Divine-human
person. The truth was embodied in human thought and speech. Know this,
'and you have the kev to. the inspiration.
In one respect the Bible is like any other
literary production and must be inter
preted according to the laws of human
thought and speech; in another aspect it
must be handled with peculiar care and
reverence, but the animating spirit is the
eternal truth of God.
There are thirty nine books in the Old
Testament and tweuty-seven in the New
Testament, sixty-six in all. This fact
impresses the student as he comes too
and faces this fact. At the same time he
soon fiuds out that nearly every book
may be said to be a discussion of some
particular theme. For example—Job is
on the problem of evil: Ecclesiastes is on
the highest good; Romans is on righteousness; Timothv and Titus is on the
pastoral office, and so on.
.The second aspect to be discussed was
what the Bible teaches: The purpose of
the Bible was to give to mankind the record of the manifestation of God. That
purpose began to manifest itself in the
Jewish church, which was coincident
with the Jewish kingdom. It teaches
that through Jesus Christ the   Christian

TENNIS CLUB FORMED.
A well attended, meeting of those interested in the formation of a tennis
club was held iu the Canadian Bank of
Commerce building yesterday afternoon.
Arrangements were made to secure the
me.of a piece of ground between the
bank and the Star office and have a court
laid out at once. The necessary equipment will be ordered at once, so as to
commence the season as early as possible.
The entrance fee has been placed at $5
for gentlemen and $3 for ladies. The
club will start with a fair membership
and this popular sport promises to boom
in Princeton this summer.
Continued on page 3.
It is stated that the C. P. R. is considering the building of a second line across
this province with a terminus at Hardy
Bay. near the northern end of Vancouver
Isiand. A large area at this point has recently been bonded for a large sum.

The Canada Zinc Co. of Nelson expect
that the plant will be ready for the treatment of zinc ores by the middle of May.
This will be the first plant of its kind in
Canada and it means much for the district

DUNCAN ROSS THE CHOICE.
A special despatch to the Star from
Vernon today announces that Duncan
Ross, the present Dominion member for
Yale-Cariboo, was the unanimous chdice
of the Liberal nominating convention
which was held at Vernon yesterday.
Mr. Ross \vill therefore carry the Liberal
at the forthcoming Dominion elections,
and whoever his opponent will be he
will have his work cut out to defeat Mr.
Ross. But the Star would like to point
out to Mr. Ross that there are several
matters in Princeton that require his
immediate attention if he expects to get
the vote he did at the last election.
THE HINDOO QUESTION.
As a result of the conference held in
London between Mackenzie King, Deputy Minister of Labor for Canada, John
Morley, Secretary of State for India, and
the Earl of Elgin, Secretary of State for
the Colonies, a satisfactory solution of
the difficulty arising from the immigra
tion of East Indians to Canada has been
found. While no legislation to restrict
this movement from India will be passed
administrative measures will be taken to
deter the Indians iroin going to Canada.
A LEAF FROM CANAD'S BOOK.
Mr. W. L. Mackenzie King's presence
in London has directed special attention
among members of the Imperial Parliament to Canada's legislation for the prevention of strikes. Similar legislation
will be introduced for the United King-/
dom. .■
VAST GAME PRESEAyE;
A vast game preserve aggregating
hundreds of square miles will be laid out
in east Kootenay this spring by the Provincial Government as a result of the
strong representations of prominent Canadian and American sportsmen. It will
be located somewhere in the mountainous region lying between the Crow's
Nest Pass branch of the C. P. R. and the
main line and will serve the same purpose as the famous Yellowstone National
Park in Wyoming under the control of
the war department of the United States.
Campbell-Bannerman has resigned the
Premiership of the Imperial House of

is expected the Provincial Government
will appeal from the decision.
J. Sparks left last Thursday for the
Yukon, where he has mining interests.  .
The tide of immigration from the
United.States has set in in earnest. The
number of land seekers and settlers crossing the boundary is far in excess of last

the banner year by 15 to 20 per cerft.
The first car of Cobalt ore to" be shipped to a Canadian smelter was forwarded

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Dunsmuir, Lieut.-Governor, for some remarks he made  the   other   day at
Montreal, re labor conditions in this
province.     The   Colonist   has the
following to say regarding  his   utterances on  this  occasion:      "Mr.
James  Dunsmuir has   been   inter-
%'iawed in   Montreal.    We   do not
say Lieut.-Governor Dunsmuir because we are bound to  assume that
he was speaking iu his  private ca-j
pacity.    We could wish that he had i
mot spoken   at   all.    Substantially I
what he said was.that this province)
•would not make any great headway
until  the   labor   situation,   is   improved, and the  only, improvement
is  in   the   introduction   of  cheap
labor.    It is fair  to  say that   Mr.
Dunsmuir talked iri "Montreal  exactly as he has   always   talked   in
British Columbia.    But here  it did
not make much  difference.    He  is
a believer in cheap labor  and  Oriental immigration.    His contention
is that  Oriental   labor   is   really a
,.^06'd.thing   for  white   labor.    On
this point he  is   hopelessly out   of
touch with  the  great   majority of
the people of British Columbia, and
and we think it very greatly to  be
regretted that he felt called upon to
represent to the people  of the east
that tbis province is not progressing
for the lack   of such   labor.    His
whole interview was decidedly pes-|
simistic, and we  think it very unfortunate that he should have taken
occasion, at a time when the interest of settlers and investors in British Columbia is growing and when
the outlook is so very satisfactory,
to lend the prestige of his position j
and his great wealth to the creation
of an unfavorable impression.    As
a  rule  Mr.  Dunsmuir   keeps   his
opinions to  himself, and   everyone
will be at a loss to understand why
he thought it wise to depart   from
his custom  in  this instance.    We
can oniy look upon the  publication
of the interview as   a   very regrettable thing.    It will  do   much   to
offset the excellent impression that
has been created   by the   showing
itoade by the  Provincial Minister of
'Finance in his last  budget  speech,
and the successful effort of the British Columbia press to secure for the
province a renewal  of confidence."

j church was created at d d veloped for t.1 e
sUvation of the world. W; are taught
"he fact that God is the creater of all. He
is father of-the human race. We j re
taught what sin is, what it has done to
c use the human race. The coming of
the Messiah, the person of Jesus Christ,
as the central fact of God's revelation of
Himself as well as the centre of all his
tory. The true history of the Christian
church is  found in the Bible alone.
The last point was how the Bible may
be read. The rev. gentleman pointed out
that first of all faith in and love for the
author was the only true and successful
study of the Bible. The Bible like its
author was not the I was, but the I am,
the ever present now. The books of the
Bible, the speaker suggested, should be
read and studied alone. At times a group
of books may be with much success taken. It must be read as a human as well
ns a Divine book. We must read it
knowing that Christ is the word. We
make known this truth to the wotld
around us. God has caused all Holy
Scripture to be written1 for our learning,
. thai we may read, murk and inwardly d'Z
gest, and by patience and prayer ever
hold fast to that blessed hope of everlasting life given to us all through our Lord
Jesus Christ.
