B   C, FRIDAY, MAY 4, 1917  $1.00 PER YEAR  ���������fy  A  LECTUREOF  GMT INTEREST  Evangelist Wood Spoke,'on  Judgment to Precede Advent of Christ  That the day appointed ��������� by God  ,in which he will judge the world  will precede the coming of Christ,  ��������� was tbe statement of Evangelist  Wood in his sermon at the Empress  theatre Sunday night. Continuing,  he said:  **>   "The   words,    'behold,   I   come  quickly; and my reward is with me'  (Rev. 22 : 12), clearly indicate that  it   must  be   determined   who  are  worthy to receive the reward  before  it can be bestowed.    'God  hath appointed   a.  day, in which   he  will  judge the world in righteousness by  that man whom he hath  ordained;  whereof he hath given assurance un  to all men, in  that  he hath raised  nim from the dead.' (Acts 17 :31.)  This is a definite period, so definite  that   its commencement is  marked  by   the   termination of that   great  prophetic period, 'Unto 2300  days,  then shall the sanctuary be cleapsed.'  (Dan. 8 : 14 ) Tbe angel Gabriel ex,  pressly told Daniel the prophet that  this period was  to begin 'from :;tbe  "going forth of the commandment to  restore, and   to   build Jerusalem,'  ��������� (Dan. 9': 25) which   took  place'in  the seventh year of Artaxerxes the  king!' (Ezra..8 : 7.)   Artaxerxes began   to  reign ..B. C. 464 (Prideau's  Connection, vol  1,  page 222).    The  seventh   year   would therefore   be  457 B.   C.    Twenty three   hundred  days (2300   years prophetic   lime)  would extend to A.D,?1844.  "The Jews turn their ears away  from this wonderful prophecy, because it locates right to the year the  time of the Messiah's baptism, and  also his''crucifixion, arid those who  cling to their preconceived idea of a  judgment after Christ's coming, are  perplexed because they dare not  pull up tbe stake that marks the  commencement of this wonderful  prophecv, as that would disarrange  the intermediate points in the prophecy: the baptism of Christ in A.  D. 27, and his crucifixion in A.D.  .31; which all religious teachers admit.  "While those ministers of the  leading evangelical churches claimed  upon the basis of this prophecy,  that Christ would come to this earth  in 1844, they made no mistake ..in  the date of the ending of this period;  but in the event that would take  place. The angel Gabriel did not say  'then shall Christ come to this  earth,' but 'then shall the sanctuary  be cleansed.' It marked the time  when the judgment would sit in the  12 : 1.) In other words, when the  Turkish power moves his seat of  government to .Jerusalem, then  Christ, our High Priest, finishes bis  work .in the heavenlv sanctuary;  the judgment work is completed,  and the time of trouble spoken-of  is due in this world.  "If Felix trembled when Paul  reasoned of the judgment to come,  should not men1, with.sius . uncon:  fessed, tremble today as they listen  to the message which can truthfully  be sounded to the world. The hour  of his judgment is come, indeed is  almost finished. This message is  part-of the everlasting^*gospel (Rev.  14 : 6, 7), and God's messengers today, who are not proclaiming it,  are leaving out a most^ important  part of the gospel story."  A BONANZA IN  ORIENT DISTRICT  The property of the F. H. & C.  Gold Mining company near Rockcut,  in the Orient district, is developing  into a wonderfully rich mine; according to J. J. Hennessy, the manager.  "A.crosscut at a depth of 30 feet  revealed a body 18 feet wide, containing 625 to $35 to the ton in'1 42  inches of ore lying ugainst tbe foot-  wall and $150 to the ton in 18  inches on the hanging wall side,'1'  reports Mr. Hennessy. The values  are about equally divided between  gold and silver.  "At the 55 foot depth tbe value  "ofthe ore on'the footw'allis $62" to  the ton, and at the present depth of  65~feet two feet on the footwall  varies in value from . $200 to $600,  while ore lying next t'o the high  grade section has a value of $10 to  $100 to tne ton. A crosscut is proceeding toward the hanging wall at  the 65 foot depth."  PERFECT SCHOOL  ATTENDA  April Shows An.

GIVES HIS LIFE  TO THE EMPIRE  Popular Grand Forks Young  Killed in Action at  the Front  t the city  W. T. Cook on Tuesday last received a telegram from the military  authorities stating that his son,  William Tasker Cook, formerly  teller in the Bank of Commerce in  this city, had been wounded on  April 14 by a gunshot in his arm,  and that he had been taken to the  hospital at Walasey.  Peck McSwayne, of Republic, is  in Grand Forks. He says that he  intends to return to Republic, and  that he does not wish it interred  that he is running away from selective conscription.  The Ledge says that the fish in  Boundary creek are coming into  Greenwood in strings. In Grand  Forks the fish have enough sense to  stay in the river.  Lieut.

Stuiz, of Danville,who is well known  as a conservative mining man as*  sayer, in an interview at Spokane  the other day. "I made no tests of  the rich samples, but believe they  contain much more than 8100,000  to the ton.

R. S. Barlee on Saturday last, when a telegram stating  that their eon, Herbert Dalling  Barlee, had been killed in action on  April 12. The news of his death  also came as a great shock to our  citizens, and caused feelings of profound regret throughout the entire  community, for Mr. Barlee was a  young man of sterling merit. He  was but nineteen years of age at his  last birthday, and the future held  much in promise for him had he  been spared, as he was naturally  bright and possessed considerable  educational attainments. He was  practically raised and educated in  this city, coming here with his parents when he was but six .years, of  age( and his many former associates  here extend to the sorrowing family  their heartfelt sympathies. The  passing of a young person in the  prime of health, while tbe shadow  of life is falling toward the west, is  at all times a pathetic event; but in^  'thincase"!hVstihg bftne calaifiify iS  somewhat softened by the knowledge  that the young man gave his life for  a gloaious cause���������to save the  empire and to perpetuate for his  fellow men the liberties to which  they have become accustomed.  In   company   with   a  number of  other  young  men of this city, Mr.  Barlee went  to Camp Hughes   last  July   and  enlisted.    In   November  (he battalion to which  he  was   attached   sailed   overseas,   and about  the   middle  of   February   he   left  England for the trenches in France.  Before enlisting, Mr. Barlee was employed iu tbe  Royal  bank  in   this  city.    The day before he was killed,  a cousin   of  his,  Rollin Barlee, of  Ke'lowna, also  made the   supreme  sacrifice.  Since mining began in British  Columbia, the gross value of the  mineral production is ������558,500,000.  The value of the minerals produced in British Columbia last year  was nearly $12,300,000.

Ipetual juggling with tiie. question puts a  man  i in as great a misery as an old toper is in dm*?

It  not  be very  difficult  to  decide  the  question.    If the solders' vote  was  honestly  taken, and they decided in favor whisky, then  we should have  sufficient  respect for their  wishes to stand by their decision; if the   vote  was  fairlv  taken,  and wc do not intend   to  abide by their verdict, then we made donkeys  of ourselves when   we  gave  them the franchise.    On  the   other hand, if fraud  can be  shown in taking the poll, you can  pass us  a  glass of water with a drop of Alberta Scotch  on the side.

When recruiting for the   home  guards  the  Emanpel Swedenborg, the founder of a religion, is recorded in history as a man who  had a series of curious dreams. He was not,  however, the only founder of a religion who  has had strange dreams. Therefore the prudent person, unless he is well armed, will  avoid religious controversies as he would a  German submarine.  gentlemen who turned to a yellowish color  when there was a prospect of their having to  go overseas, should not be encouraged to join.  There are certain emoluments in connection  with a home guardsman which appear tempting to them; but if trouble should arise on this  side of the Atlantic, it might be difficult to  get them to the front.

Local politicians, however, appear to be certain that we are to have a general federal election before next fall.  The indications are that fairs and celebrations will not be in flower in British Columbia  during the coming summer, as the dates for  these events are being cancelled in various  parts of the province. This is as it should be.  The present is not a proper time for rejoicing  and festivities. All the energies of the people, in every walk of life, are required to bring  the Great war to a successful termination.  After that task has been accomplished we  will have many victories to celebrate; and we  will celebrate them on a huge scale. Just  now hard work is most in line with the proper  fitness of things.  There is a great deal of truth in the following paragraph from the Eepublic Journal:  "When the civil war closed the energy that  had awakened under the stress of necessity  could not be stopped immediately. The most  remarkable development of the country was  taken up before the ardor kindled by unusual  exertions had died out. War is hell, but it is  a great renovator. It stirs up the sluggish  blood and brings men with eagerness to a  point of action. The fever is being kindled  in the present war. When this war is ended,  whether it be of a brief or a long duration, a  new' enthusiasm will be characteristic of the  national spirit, and a new era of great things  naturally follow."  Too many people in this country appear to  be under the impression that they are doing  their share in the production and datriotism  movement by raising prices instead of growing foodstuffs. Before this war ends a great  many sham patriots will be relegated to the  scrap pile and the true patriots will appear on  the surface.  Tomorrow the miners in the Crow's Nest  vote on the adoption of the agreement arrived  at by the mine owners and the representatives  of the miners. If the agreement is rejected,  there appears to be but one way out of the  dilamma, and that is for the government to  take over the coal mines and work them.  Great industrial plants, whose products are  needed for the successful prosecution of the  war, should not be allowed to stand idle while  the empire is in peril. If stringent measures  are required to again start the wheels of industry, they should be taken without hesitancy.

I understand this   to mean, Explain the truth.  First, then, we   will   go   back   perhaps one hundred  and   sixty   years  or   more,   which takes us back some  little time before the Final Judgment, which took place  .in-the year 1757; for before thattime the  angels   were  in despair, over our condition.    They will soon come to  us to give us good thoughts about God, only to find our  minds almost a blank.    We were so taken up with the  tilings of the world that there was nothing in our minds  for their minds   to   assimilate with;   nothing that they  could take hold of and lay a foundation for the building  up of   divine   intelligences, and   even the men   of   the  church   knew  scarcely   anything   of   the hereafter; for  though it is in God's word, we did  not   understand   it.  Thus the angels lamented before  God   of  the  hopeless  condition of our minds.   And God made known to them  that   the   word,"was   written  with   a natural sense, or  sense   of   the   letter, with a spiritual sense and with   a  celestial sense; for the word is written   wholly   by   correspondences, to the end that in every  particular there  may   be   an   inner   sense; that the'word was divine by  virtue of its spiritual and inner sense, and that He was  about to declare these things, and that  He   would   lift  the veil between us and the world of spirits, so that we  could know the result of our lives here in the world to  come.    And the angels rejoiced that we were to be enlightened.    Tt was also   made   known to them that the  internal meaning ofthe word should be exploined, that  this was what was meant by the coming of   the  Lord.  In the beginning was the word, and the word was with  God and the   word   was   God.   But that, as  the Lord  could not  appear  again   in person, it was necessary to  find   a mind   capable of  learning spiritual knowledges  and reducing them down to natural  ideas suited to our  minds; that Emanuel Swedenborg was   chosen by   God  for this office; that he was born -inStockholm, Sweden,  in 16S8, and   died   in   1772; that   he wrote  in Latin;  that.his language was so fine that words could   scarcely  be found in our English language to express his ideas-���������  and no wonder, since he was giving the intelligences of  angels.     For beautiful truths about his life, consult the  book on.thelife and mission of Emannel   Swedenborg  The reason why the.Lord will   not ^appear   again  in  person is given in the true Christian religion.  He says:  "The   reason   why the  Lord   will not apgear again in  person is because since His ascension into heaven He is  in His glorified humanity, and in that humanity He can  not appear to any man unless the eyes of his  spirit   be  first opened and this opening can not be effected in an}'  that   are evil.     Therefore  when He shewed Himself to  His disciples He first opened   their eves, for it is writ  ten:  'And their eyes were opeued, and they knew Him,  and He vanished out of   their  sight' (Lukexxiv : 31).  The case was the same with the women who visited the  sepulchre after his resurrection; hence at the, same time  they al-so saw angels sitting in the sepulchre, whom yet  it is impossible for anyone to see with the material eye.  It is plain from his transfiguration  before Peter, James  and John, that the apostles before the Lord's  resurrection did not see Him in   His  glorified   humanity   with  their   bodily  eyes, but  in   the   spirit.     None save his  disciples either saw, or could see. the   Lord   after   His  resurrection.     It is in vain, then, to  imagine that  the  Lord will appear in the literal clouds of heaven in person     The   truth   is. that   He will appear in the word,  which   is from Him, and  which is thus himself.    Since  the Lord can not manifest himself to  the world in per  son, and yet he had foretold that He would come  and  establish a New Church, which   is the New Jerusalem,  it follows that he will effect this by the instrninentality  of a man who is able not only to receive  the  doctrines  of that church in his understanding, but also   to make  them known by the press.    That the  Lord   manifested  Himself before mo His servant, Emanuel Swedenborg,  and  sent  me on  this office and afterwards opened the  eyes of my spirit and so let me into the spiritual world  permitting me to see tho heavens and the hells, and  also to converse with angels and spirits, and tins continually for years." Swedenborg says in many places  that he never received anything relating to the doctrine  of that church from any angel, but from the Lord  alone, when he was reading the word; so that the Lord  was constantly p.icsentwith him to reveal to him the  spiritual sense of His word It should be known that  man as to his interiors is a spirit, and that a spiritual  body forms over our spirit, but beneath our natural  body; that it forms for heaven or hell Recording to the  life that is lived; thai our spirit becomes the image of  the mind; that at death, or what wc call doath, the  Lord comes and withdraws the spirit, together with the  spiritual body from thti material body; that the material body is left to decay, never to be used again; that  the Lord removes the spirit to the spiritual kingdom,  whore it is revived by celestial angels; that this is commonly called resurrection.  The next question to consider is, why the Lord did  not come bo fore this final judgment instead of after,  because divine truths must pass through the spiritual  kingdom, which is midway between heaven and hell;  that those who w*������rn in Iih judged wuvc in the spiritual  kingdom, and would ii.>icn:cpt jne&stigus and falsify them  on the way through; tbnt before a now church could be  established it was jh^i-smiix)1' to form a new Christian  heaven, to be   in   cnnjiiim ti'.n   with   thai church; that  We are now entering the fourth and'last phase of   the  church on earth. ..  Now, then, just a few things should   be, said   about  the judgment.    Those who wish to know more will find  it fully  explained   in the. vi volume'of the Apocalypse  and in   the work-on   the final   judgment.    First���������The  last judgment, was effected in the world of spirits in the  early part of the year 1757.    Before the judgment took  place the Lord was seen ima bright cloud   with angels,  and a sound of trumpets was heard from it, which was  a sign representative of the protection of the angels   of  heaven by the Lord and of the gathering of  the good  from   every   quarter,   for   the Lord does not bring de-  strnction upon any, but only protects His own     Then  those who were about to perish or cast themselves into  hell were seen together in the likeness of a great dragon  The judgment was passed not upon the very wicked, as'.  they were in hell, nor upon the rea'l good, as they were  in heaven, but-upon the lukewarm   who had   collected  since Christ was on earth and who had   been   tolerated  in the spiritual kingdom until that time  All the people who ever lived on earth and departed  are either in heaven, in hell or in the spiritual kingdom When they are in their final abode they are  there to eternity. Every one after death is in the delight of their own love. Souls in hell are in the delight  of their own love of evil. They suffer and they labour  for food; but souls in hell never 'cease to be a' care and  anxiety to God . and the--angels. The earth or land  which passed was an earth or land in the world of  spirits. This visible earth will not pass away. The  heaven which passed away was a fictitious heaven, not  built by the Lord, but by those who cane out of Christendom into the spiritual world, all of whom were dispersed at the.day of the last judgment. Now. then, it  should be understood that true saying faith, which is a  faith in one God, united with good works, is acknowledged and received. The faith of the New Jerusalem  is as follows: First, that there is one God in whom is a  divine trinity, and that he is the Lord Jesus Christ.  ���������Second, that saving faith is to believe in Him. Third,  that evils ought to shunned, because they ar������ of the  devil and from the devil, fourth, that good works  ought to be done, because they are of God and from  God Fifth, and that they ought to done by man as of  himself, but with a belief that they are from the Lord,  operating in him and bv him The Lord promises to be  with the people of the New Church as He has never  been before. He says, they shall be my people and I  will be their God.  I wonld like to say something of'God's love for His  own. I wish I conld tell what it is to grow warm with  God; I wish everyone could know what it is to stand in  the genial warmth of our spring sunshine and in thought  look beyond to that other sun where God dwells and  feel the influx of true affection which comes from Him  to Plis own; but here words fail-���������-there is no language  to express it.  Now, then, a few things should be said about the  kingdom of heaven. It has mountains, and the celestial  angels dwell there. It has fields, trees, lakes, rivers,  cities, streets wish dwellings. Swedenborg says: "I  have seen palaces of heaven of such magnificence as can  not be described. They shone above as of pure gold,  and below as of precious stones, some more splendid  than others. Within the apartments were adorned  with such decorations as there are neither words nor  knowledge to describe. On the side looking to the  south were pleasure grounds, where everything shone,  in some places the leaves as of silver, and the fruit as of  gold, and the flowers in their beds formed rainbows  with their colors, and beyond were other palaces. Such  is the architure of heaven that you would say the art  is there in its art; arid no wonder, because that art is  itself in heaven. The angels said such things and in  numerable others, which are still more perfect, are presented by the Lord before their eyes. In heaven raiment is provided by the Lord according to their state.  Food is not prepared, but daily given."  Persons who wish to know    more   about these things  should consult the work on "Heaven and Hell "  The ministers of the gospel are at a loss to know  why the pews are empty. The reason is simple. The  church is at an end; faith and charity are no longer  there, and the Lord has gone out of it. Now, let the  ministers cast off the old creeds and doctrines as thoy  would a worn-out garment. Let the business proposition church pass away, and take up the new; let them  take up a religion that lifts the veil between us and the  spirit world, so that people may know the reason why���������  and then watch tho empty peA\s fill up; watch the people come who have been hungering for a satisfying re-  lion and could not find it; watch them come to hear the  news from home, that has come fresh from the mind of  God our Father. Lot the people learn that to live and  act in a manner that will meet with God's r/ppioval is  to elevate the mind into the light of heaven, ho that  when God says, "J)o this for me," they know that they  are being spoken to and it is for them to act; and the  people who learn this will hardly return to the old life  of get-the dollars and appear important. Oh! that 1  could put power into my pen. How gladly I would use  it in asking all the world to accept the Lord in his second coming on His own terms, and trust Him. Vor only  in this way can we hope to see the dawn of peace.  i !  THAT  <0  Isn't the news of your  store something like the  nsws ofthe whole city?

BRITISH COLUMBIA  TELEPHONE COMPANY, LTD.  Prof. W. J. Black, Dominion  agricultural commissioner, says the  seriousness of the food situation in  Canada this year can not be exaggerated. It may be more than alarming before winter.  Prof. Black is now in Victoria on  a transcontinental survey. He is  conferring with agricultural officials  in every province. He says the  season in Saskatchewan's almost a  month late. Added to this is the labor  shortage, which is resulting iu a decrease in the acreage. Ontario and the  eastern provinces especially are suffering from labor shortage."'Even  the record prices for wheat are not  attracting sufficient labor to increase  production.  The commissioner declares that  the one field of patriotic endeavor  that should attract city dwellers is  cultivation of the laud in every part  of the country. Because.of the high  prices work of this kind will probably prove the most remunerative  for the next couple of years  "The situation is just this," Prof.  Black went on: "Unless Canadians  go right out into the fields this year  and help the farmer with his crop,  Canada's greatest opportunity to  feed her own people and-provide a  surplus for the allies will be lost."  He says "that unless the prospects  improve at once the--situation here  will be alarming next winter.  r  'B  'm  B  Mr..H. S.
