 ^  NOV 141910  ARE YOU ON OUR LlST?  NO! WHY ?  SUBSCRIPTION $1 A YEA*  IN ADVANCE  Vancouver City, Mount Pleasant, South Vancouver and The Province  VOLUME II  VANCOUVER, British Columbia,   NOV.  11,  1910.  No. 27  STATE   AID   TO  THE   PRODUCERS  South Australia has passed what is known as the "Advances  to Settlers' A^et," which provides that advances tip to $3,000 may  be made to settlers on Crown lands for "ring-barking," "clearing,"  "grubbing," "fencing." "the erection of permanent water improvement," "permanent, buildings," "purchase of stock," etc.  The repayment of the loans extend over a period of thirty years,  with interest at 5 per cent., -payable half-yearly. During the first  five years only the payment of the interest is asked, but from that  date forward a regular half-yearly instalment of principal will be  paid.  There has been 136 applicants for loans, of which 74 were  ���������approved, showing that care is exercised to see that only proper  persons can secure this help. N  We have frequently advocated just sueh a principle for British  Columbia. Is there no member of the local house who is public-'  ���������spirited enough to introduce such, a measure/.  The cry of "back to the soil" is vain as long as we give our  land over to the speculator and i*efuse help to the settler. It  costs inoriey to settle on. the land, and every possible assistance  should be given.  Then, again, it would be a mighty good investment for the  Government. They would receive 5 per cent, interest and the  loan could be granted only as a "progressive loan," or payable  only on improvements as they, were made. For instance, a settler  wishes to build a house; he would submit his plans to tlie Government official in the same way as to a loan Company, and upon his  [approval would proceed to construct and receive7his loan at certain  ^stages of construction.. Or, perhaps, he wishes to fence, clear and  break fifty acres, an estimate:'.would .'.be ma# and payments advanced on:the loan as the work progressed* Thus it would be  seenthe Government wpuld run no risks as the improvements  would be equivalent security for the amount advanced, besides  they alsp would have the land as additional security.  It is not only feasible and good.business, but it is imperative.  }(~that some such scheme be instigated, otherwise we riin,grave risks  1 of dissipating the greatest publw  '">;*:��������� ito^  Provincial Mineralogist Robinson, wrho recently7madesuch an  absurd statement regarding Portland Canal, his been the recipient  [.-of-"several very pointed letters regarding:; hisJln-advised attaiek, and  justly sp^ 7W������ have wceri^^  I with Mr. Robinson during his visit in that district, that he only  'spent five days in the whole district, and only visited two properties/ One inorning, because of a little flurry of show, he would  not go out at all. In comparison to this, we have the record of  Mr. McConnel, the Dominion Mineralogist, that he spent about  four months in the district and then stated that it was only about  lalf enough to do the work properly.   Mr. McConnel had quite a  [number of men with him and they worked in all sorts of weather.  The citizens of British Columbia are deeply interested in the  latural resources of the country, and an official who will go off  it half-cock like Robinson should receive his walking ticket at  nice, for the longer he is retained the more harm he will do, and  he harm he does cannot be counteracted except by years of toil.  This is not his first offence, but it should be bis last.  /  GREATER VANCOUVER.  "I do not want to see the older wards of this city forced to pay  fc'or the improvement of the outlying districts."   Such was the senti-  Itnent expressed by Aid. Hepburn in offering his initial objection to  the scheme of a "Greater Vancouver."  If an argument were wanted to support the.claims made for a  jommissioh form of government, the foregoing remark should be-  ibsoliitely convincing. It is this narrow <ward spirit which is responsible for many of the serious mistakes made in the past, for  >hich we are now suffering, and for which generations yet unborn  rill also, suffer. This practice of setting "ward" against "ward,"  &'business section" against "residential sections," etc.* is what regards expansion and is the greatest obstacle in the way of a "Greater  Vancouver" that exists. Could Ward I. or Ward II. exjst and  roperty values increase if it were not for the business brought in  >om the outlying districts? Would the business section be a "busi-  less section" if it were not supported by a large residential district?  Lccording to Aid. Hepburn's reiterated argument, only the taxes  i>aid into the treasury by a given district should be spent iu that dis-  frict. He would deriy to outlying sections the expenditure of money  tor improvements because the taxes of the district was not equal to  jhe expenditure.  Let us banish such sentiments from our minds, and as citizens  I If a city with a future which is unrivalled by that of any other ou  he continent, let us assume a broader position and grapple with the  remendous problems facing us, with a united front aud a single mo-  ive���������tbe advancement and establishment of a Greater Vancouver.  ( PABK DRIVE BBIDGE.  About a month ago Aid. Stevens made a strong protest before  [he Board of Works and the City Council anent, the Park Drive  Iridge over the G. N. R. cut. claiming it was unsafe. At that time  |^ity Engineer Clements stated it was "safe."  The Mayor paid a visit to the bridge and ordered it-repaired,  Jso thinking it unsafe.   Again Mr. Clement said "safe."  It will be noted that both of the afore-mentioned gentlemen are  :>posed ;to the City Engineer.  Aid. McBride last week paid his respects to the said bridge, and  his wisdom also decided it was unsafe.   This time, be it rioted, the  Alderman was the City Engineer's chief champion, so. lo and be-  Ihld! our worthy Engineer decides that the bridge is "unsafe." and  [ie City Council order the B. C. Electric to have its passengers walk  :<ross the bridge.  Then along comes Mr. Cumbie of the C. P. R.. and Mr. Vorse of  &e B. C. Electric, who decide it is "safe," and again we wittfess.a  fdden   change   in the City Engineer, arid   he   religiouslv echoes  safe."  From these facts it would appear that Mr. Clement based his  [;dgment and decision upon three distinct sentiments:  First���������Personal enmity to those who complained;  Second���������Subserviency, at any cost, to the. chief champion of  5 catise, the chairman of Board of Works;  Third���������A desire to agree with two eminent fellow engineers.  This may be good polities, but it is questionable ability.  It is a shame that the Province news boys are allowed to carry  the way they do every day. at the corner of 7th and Westminster  re.  They make use of a small shae'k in the alley, back of the Union  ink, where the boys receive their papers for delivery.   Complaints  foul language of a Billingsgate quality is the common thing.  DO THE,uTRADE!  CONTROL THE  LICENSE COMMISSION  :��������� 7 ' -    - '      \  Is the Position Used for Personal Ends?  As the end of the year draws nearer, it is natural that the citizens should scan carefully the record of those who have been representing them during the past year.  It is not our intention to discuss here the merits or demerits of  the Council Board, but only that of the License Commission. This  body is in absolute control of the liquor licenses of the city, and  hence it is very important that it should be -/constituted of men above  reproach. Unfortunately the citizens only elect two members of this  commission, and the Provincial Government appoint two, who, with  the Mayor as chairman, constitute the board.  Last year the people elected Jas..Findlay and H. A. Edgett, and  the government appointed Messrsk Crehan and Williamson. The  work of the board on the whole ha^ been fairly satisfactory. There  was a determined effort on the part;of'Messrs. Findlay, Crehan and  Williamson to keep the standard of-hotels up to a very high level,  arid many times licenses were cancelled or dealt with in a, very strict  manner; but it has been rioted;by;riiany close observers that through  some subtle influence these actions have been reversed at a subsequent meeting of the'board, thus undoing what had previously been  accomplished. A careful sifting of the matter to discover the source  of this influence points strongly to the one member of the board who  is in a peculiar position to profit because of his connection and who  by his experience is best fitted to accomplish these subtle moves, that  is to H. A. Edgett, the well-known grocer.  It is an open secret that Mr. Edgett is viewed as the "representative of the License Victualler*' Association," and is lovingly  spoken of by them as "our man," or, when speaking of the provision end of the hotel business it has often .been remarked that "we  cannot afford to pass up Edgett; he is a good friend of ours."  Of course it is a well-known fact that nearly every hotel in the  city buys exclusively from the Hastings Street store; this^ of course,  is not illegal, ms a License Commissioner is allowed to canvass the  hotels (which he is elected to control) for-trade, while the Mayor  arid Aldermen are not permitted to sell anything whatever to the  city/directly or indirectly. This doesjipt seem fair, and it Kpfesslble  J#l������t'vjn>'tKe-'pas^'-or'-"even''n6w, the position of License Commissioner  has been used as a means to'boostucertain private interests.  What seems to be a remarkable coincident is the fact that, prior  to entering the field as a candidate for License Commissioner, Mr.  Edgett had never been known to interest himself in publie affairs in  any respect whatsoever, and when he did come forward to serve the.  public (?) it was as a candidate for the only position which could  directly benefit his business as a grocery man and provision merchant. -  Mr. Edgett is only human, and it is quite natural that he should  accept all the hotel trade which was offered him, and we cannot  question his right to do so; but we do question the wisdom of the  citizens in electing to such an office one who must necessarily have  personal interests so intricately interwoven with those of his public  office that it would take a person of extremely strong temperament  to discriminate equitably between the two, that is of course, providing the only motive was the public interest; but it is nothing short  of madness on the part of the electors to elect as a License Commissioner any one who should-seek the position only as a means to supplement his own trade. * ;  As already stated, there has been some veiy questionable actions  on the part of the board during the past year, one in particular, on  which we made some very strong: comments at the time,was the  case of the -Atlantic Hotel. The proprietors of this house were convicted of illicit sale of liquor on Sundays, and the liceuse cancelled;  at a subsequent meeting the one of the partners who claimed ignorance received the license again,'and the most active spirit in reissuing the liceuse was Commissioner Edgett. A pertinent arid, we  think, a fair question would be: -'Did this house purchase extensively from Edgett prior to the cancelling of the lieense?" and "Do  they purchase from him now?"  Another very interesting case was that of a hotel on Main St.  which was about to be transferred, and one of the stipulations in the  transfer was that the transferee should buy his groceries from Edgett. Of course, as already stated, this is not illegal, but is it advisable to have such intimate relations existing between" Commissioner and licensee?"  Would it not be in the best interests of the city to have the charter amended so that it would be illegal for a Commissioner to sell  goods to a holder of a license? /  We purpose dealing at length with this problem, and are convinced that sufficient data can be obtained to persuade the most  skeptical reader that it is high time this pernicious practice was  stopped. Watch these columns next week for some interesting  facts.  DEMOCRATS GET AN INNINGS.  Tha remarkable victory of the Democrats in tlie recent congressional elections in the. U. S. came as a- surprise to many. It  was not expected, but now that it is over, we can record this event  as another evidence of the wonderful strength and influence of the  "great silent vote."  The people will stand just so much "jolly" and uo more. The  Republicans have been giving the American people a "jolly" for  the last eight or ten years, and the people decided it was time for  a change so���������exit Republicans.  The tarrif question was the paramount issue and the chief cause  of the turn over. The tariff wall in America has resulted in advancing the interests of the favored few, but not in relieving the  position of the masses, and they were tiring of it.  There is no doubt but that election results will have considerable effect on the negotiations now going on at Ottawa regarding  "reciprocity." it-may make it somewhat easier to arrange a tarrif  which will meet the interests of both nations more equitably.  COST OF RADIUM.  Sir William Ramsay recently announced that radium now costs  $2,100,000 an ounce, which price is slightly less than the value given  by him about a year ago, as $2,500,000. A year ago there was said  to be about one-quarter of a pound of radium in tlie world. As a  matter of fact, the actual quantity is not' now much greater. Radium banks have been established in Paris and London for the purpose  of lending radium at a price. As niuch as $200 has been charged for  the use of 100 milligrammes for a single day.  A WARNING TO  BRITISH COLUMBIA  The following despatch town Australia is a strong comment  upon the wasteful policy of the Provincial Government as regards  the "Laud Department." We do not make this stntement simply  to attack the Government, but because we realize that in "many  ways the McBride administration has been admirable, but in respect of the land policy, we would not be doing our duty were  we not, on all possible occasions, to sound a note of warning against  the wasteful policy of our government as regards the'publie domain. The land is rapidly passing into tlie hands of unscrupulous  speculators, and the day is not far distant when we will be callejd  upon to either purchase it back at enormous cost, or else to suffer  the unutterable burden of carrying a host of "laud sharks." Let  US;take warning from;theexperience of others. The'article1 referred to is as follows: ' ��������� '���������*������.* i ^  ������������������v ��������� Encouraglno Small Farmers. \  Though a very large proportion of the land in Queensland Is still Crowja  property, in the most favoured districts it has been found necessary from  time to time to buy back large areas alienated in earlier years. To souse  extent'that policy continues to be pursued, and with highly beneficial1 ^Jesuits so far as settlement and agricultural development are concerned.

So there  was in "It's Never Too Late to Mend."' But Reade'slioolc Wd  good,-by making people think for themselves.' People as^wholfe  arekindly, and not over and above wise. , So their .first thought  with regard to prison reform is that things should be:made.more  materially comfortable for the prisoner.   Now it may be said with  every imaginable emphasis and without fear of contradiction, that  a thrice-convicted burglar in a modern English penal establishment  is materially better off than the poorest class of worker outside  the prison.   In matters of food, lodging, clothing, hygiene, leisure,  access to books, and the like, he is better off.   It is mathematically  true to say that, in Dartmoor, fo rinstance, the health average is  much higher than in Bethnal Green.    The kindly, generous, sentimental public is hopelessly wrong in its vague desire to make  prisons more comfortable places than they are     But that is not  to say that our prison system stands in no need of reform.   So long  as punishment fails, as our present prison system fails, to make  criminals turn away from crime, it is in need of reform.   But it  is being reformed all the time;  and in the right direction;  not in  silly,  coddling,  sentimental ways, but by   the   development, for  example, of the Borstal system, and the segregation of "juvenile  adults."   What is required is recognition of the fact that punishment���������imprisonment���������must, to be just and helpful, be varied not  only in= severity or duration, but in kind.   The difference between  oac month and one year is not adequate.  ��������� ���������  ; ;!  RECIPROCITY  That there is roem for readjustment of our tariff relations  with the United States will be disputed by few. but when it cornea  to advocating reciprocity, it is simply advocating something which  will be of distinct advantage to tlie United States and would result  in throwing open the vast natural resources of Canada for axploi-  tation of the Americans.  The following figures quoted from the "Monetary Times" are  interesting:  Accordiug to the official figures,, we purchased from the United  States during the year ended March, 1909, goods to the value of  $239,070,549. Of that total nearly half, or $106,044,412, came into  Canada free of duty. ,In other words, imports from the United  States, valued at approximately $239,000,000, were subjected to  less than $30,000,000 duty. Canada's exports to the neighboring  republic in the same period were valued at $110,614,327, of which  more than $6,000,000 represented foreign goods. Even including  that amount. Canada's total exports to the United States were only  $4,000,000 less than the imports which came in from that country  free' of duty, still leaving a balance of dutiable trade to the amount  of $133,000,000 in favor of our neighbors. Contrasted with these  figures are those of another big customer. Great Britain, from whom  we purchased only $95,000,000 worth of merchandise. $23,000,000  of which came in free of duty. Despite these small purchases.  Canada sold to Great Britain goods valued at $149,630,488, of which  $10,000,000 represented foreign articles.  From these figures one thing must impress the reader very  forciblv. viz.: that the field of trade within the Empire is worthy  2 WEESTERN CALL a  pw  of very grave consideration, and that it is absolutely essential that  heavy export duty be placed on all our raw materials, whatever we  may do Avith' the import duty.  Uncle Sam wishes "reciprocity" because it is to the advantage  of American trade to have it. Their own natural resources' are  dissipated. They want the handling of ours. Let us beware or  else our heritage will slip from our control. Oih* distinct duty liea  toward the Empire rather than to our cousins to the South.   ; . ,  OIL AS FUEL.  (Scientific American.)  Apparently, engineer officers of our navy are most favorably  impressed with oil fuel, and this as the result of their practical experience on ships that are equipped for its use. Lieut. Com. Allen,  of the "Nebraska," estimates that weight for weight, fuel oil will  carry his ship one-third farther than coal and at much less expense,  the saving of course varying with the local market price of the oil.  In that ship, one thousand tons of oil can be carried in the double  bottom, over and above that which could be stowed in the bunker  spaces, and this one thousand tons would be sufficient to carry the  vessel about five thousand miles.  k,-k *������'* 1**A*TK;*Wi������������; Wrtit^LVWH, i*ZX*KiX CO=��������������� '���������*  r^t^i "t; wmrwR; "  THE WESTERN CALL, VANCOUVER.

Text: "God hath made of one blood  all nations of men, for to dvveil on ah  the face of the earth���������that they should  seek the Loul."���������Acts xvii: iU-27.  This is the charter of human liberties. Paul's deulaiation finds its root  a tne n.st eleven cnupters oi Ger.t-  sis, the authority of which, as inspired  of God, the higher critics in college,  pulpit and press, are doing their best  to uproot in the minds of men.  And that is why I have to oppose  their work.  They can never destroy the truth  :or ever hurt it. Hut they can destroy  its power over human life���������by persuading men to believe a lie.  The Bible record shows that in pre-  Xlan days this occurred several times  and always spelled disaster to those  Involved:���������  1. When Adam believed the devil's  lie Instead of God's Word���������  The devil is the real author of the  higher criticism, and though many  really good men have been and are  atili involved in it, its origin and its  consequences both stand revealed.  Notice.���������Adam and Eve were not  bad people when they believed the  devil's lie. They were wrapped ln a  life of innocence and surrounded by  every blessing God's good hand could  provide.  The devil's lie did not hurt God's  truth.  But the believing it did bring awful  Injury to Adam and Eve and those  dependent on them.     "  2. When Cain believed tbat the offering he brought ought, to be as acceptable to God as was the bloody offering that Abel had brought and found  acceptance in.  Cain's believing that lie didoot hurt  the truth, not even when he murdered  Abel, "For He being dead yet speak-  eth"���������and Abel's sacrifice, glorified  now by the Cross of Christ, is still at  band for any penitent sinner to bring  to God.  But it did hurt Cain and all his'de-  pendents, and that Caintte lie, eventually prevailing, dragged the whole  human race, save eight persons, into  its maelstrom of horro.s  3. When the world, after the flood,  listened to the voices of���������  It's college professors  It's theologians  It's daily papers  It's novelists .  Instead of to the reverend Word of  God.  i ne Apostle Paul describes the situation thus in Rom. 1: "Men are without excuse-T  "Because that, when they knew God,  they glorified Him not as God, neither  were thankful; but because vain in  their imaginations, and their foolish  heart was darkened; professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,  and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like  to corruptible man, and to birds, and  four-footed beasts and creeping things.  Wherefore God also gave them up to  uncleanness through the lusts of their  own hearts, to dishonor theiro own  bodies between themselves. Who  changed the truth of. God into a lie,  and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is  blessed forever, Amen. For this cause  God gave them up unto vile affections.  For even their women did change  the natural use into that which is  against nature. And likewise also thc-  ������en, leaving the natural use of the  woman, burned in their lust, one to-  ward another; men with men working  that which is unseemly, and receiving  in themselves that recomper.se of their  error which was meet. And even as  they did not. like to retain God in their  knowledge, God gave them over to a  reprobate mind, to do those things  which are not convenient. Being filled  with ail unrighteousness, fornication,  ���������.vickedness, covetousness. maliciousness, full of envy, minder, debate, deceit, malignity, whispereis, backbiters,  liaters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things,, disobedient to parents without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful,  who. knowing the judgment of God,  that they who commit such things are  worthy of death, not only do the same,  but have pleasure <m them that do  them."  The forsaking by the ancient world  of the Truth of God, revealed to them  through Noah, did not hurt the truth  of God.���������That remains with us to this  day, for all who will to believe or to  reject.  But it did hurt the ancients, and the  above is Paul's indictment of the outcome. Needless to say, history confirms Paul's awful picture.  Into this putrid mess of human  frenzy God sent His Son. Christ came  to His own chosen people, but they,  coo, weie in a sad plight. Their coi-  ege professors and theologians had  'made void (he Word of God by their  traditions."  Thus did Jesus arraign the thsolo-  gians of His day���������Mark 7-!>:  Full well ye reject the Command me :t  of God, that ye may keep your own  tradition, making the Word of God o'  tone effect  through    your    tradition  which ye have delivered."  Notice.���������They did not hurt the truth.  That, remained untouched and is with  ���������js today, absolutely as Jesus found it  and left it.  But they made the Word of God of  non-effect. That is. it did not have  the effect .it would have had if the  teachers "had not turned the truth of  God into a lie."  As a consequence, Israel "was scattered and lost," as sheep without a  shepherd."  With Infinite patience and tenderness, Jesus won to Himself a devoted  little band. Those He Instructed in  the Mind of God. His constant companion and source of authority and inspiration was the Word of God���������the  Old Testament, to which He set His  seal (as we have it), as the Word of  God.  That Jesus, according to N. T. Record, placed this value on the Old Testament Scriptures, is not denied by  the sane critic. ,  That, according to the New Testament, Jesus taught His Disciples that  the authority and sanction and inspiration of God was behind every jot and  tittle of the low, is not denied by any  honest critic.  What they say is simply that Jesus  did not know.  That they^ the critics, have access  to sources of information that Jusus  did not have.  Once more, no one can honestly  deny that tbe Disciples, taught hy  Christ, went out into that old pagan  hell, produced by man's rejecting  God's Word and believing their professors' and theologians' and philosophers' lies.  With but otie weapon in their hands,  the Word of God, as the God in breathed message and revelation and command of God to men.       '  ,  This message God sealed with the  mighty miracle of Christ's resurrection  from the dead.  That this weapon was effective is  witnessed by the critics themselves.  Stead puts it as "The story that  transforms the world." The title is  not altogether true, but there was  truth enough in it to make the very  angels weep for joy.  It is ��������� not easy for us who have  grown up in Christendom, to comprehend the darkness into which tbe  Gospel message went. Seneca, one of  the most fascinating of the Pagan  philosophers, writes of the then conditions thus:  "The world is filled with crimes and  vices. Things are too far gone to be  healed by any regimen. Men are battling for the palm of reprobate manners. Each day lust waxes and shame  wanes. Trampling down all that is  good and sacred, lust hies it whithersoever it will. Vices no longer shun  the light. So barefaced is wickedness become, and so wildly does it  blaze up in all bosoms, that innocence  is ,not to say rare, but is nowhere to  be found."  These scorching words of Seneca  are generally supposed to have been  written during the reign of Caligula���������  just twenty years before Paul .penned  ������������������.he i:dictment of the heathen world.  In Romans I. and just about the time  that Peter opened the kingdom of  heaven tp the Gentiles in the home of  Cornelius at Cesareh.  Notice.���������Every educational institution in the then known worlC was  against the Gospel message���������every pro-  ;ssor a,:id teacher, every priest and  preacher of every religion, and mare  than all together the Jewish professors  and preachers, the custodians of God's  word, of whom Jesus said:  "Making the Word of God of ncne  effect through your tradition, which  ���������ve have delivered."   Mark vii: 1-3.  These men first, most bitterly and  most continuously, struck at the men  who promulgated the simple truths of  the Gospel.  It was not the rabble who crucified  XT but the college-bred men who had  evolved a system of religion superimposed upon the word of God, but  which made it void to all who accepted  their tradition.  The same fate awaited the Gospel  Church as had overtaken the Jewish  Church. The Gospel was spread with  healing on its wings by the same  simple men aa had accompanied Christ  John resided id Asia Minor.  Thomas   preached    in  Parthia  and  later iir I:;dia. !

Of  all  these the    only    parchment,  scholar was Paul, whose open e'onfes-  I  came to you, i  sion was:  "I. brethren, when  came not with excellency of speech as ���������  wisdom, declaring unto you the Testimony of God. For 1 determined not  to know anything anior.g you save  Jesus Christ and Him crucified." "Not  with wisdom of words, lest the Cross  of Christ should be made of no effect."  What these few unlettered men accomplished is a matter of history. I  need not refer to it here.  How their work was undone and the  word of God again made of none effect  is also a matter of history. ���������  Christ, in removing the barriei  which separated men from God, removed also the barrier which hat!  hitherto divided men from one another.  There was now the One High Priest  ami Mediator for all. through Whom  all men, once reconciled to God, are  themselves made a priestly and spiritual race���������one Heavenly King. Guide  and Teacher, through whom all are  taught of God.  Gradually, however, the notion of a  priesthood of a sacred order of men.  found its way Into the new society.  Gradually the congregations werf  willing to relieve themselves of the  onus of maintaining a thoroughly  Christian life and to commit their spir  itual concerns to the care of theii  bishops or presbyters.  These, on their part,' began to as  sume a certain superiority in rank,  and to restrict to themselves the title  of the cierl or clergy (heritage of  God), a title which hitherto had comprehended the whole body of believers.  It was the "Mystery of Iniquity" that  was already working in Paul's day.  "The "leaven" that was to work  until all was leavened.  Thus, little by little, the visible  Church became altered until that wonderful humble, human instrument,  through which God had played the  water of His Word upon the old pagai  world until the fires of hell began ti  die down, that.white soul-conquerlnj  band of martyrs became altered, unti  In ber stead the proud, murdering Ro  man Basileia, "arrayed Jn purple am  scarlet colour, decked with gold air/  precious stones- and. pearls, drunker  with the blood of the saints, and wit)  the blood of the martyrs of Jesus," sat  triumphant upon the prostrate liberties of the world and ruled, with ever  deepening tyranny and honor, for a  thousand years.  Rejecting the claim of Rome, as to  the early Papal succession-, as unhis-  torlcal, we may place the beginning of  the Papacy in the year 399 A.D., and  the first Pope Anastasius I.  From this point the power and magnificence of the Papal oflice" rapidly  rose, attaining its zenith between the  years 1054-1305.  In 1294 A.D., Boniface VIII., erstwhile Benedetto Caetani. the ablest  of the Cardinals, gained the Papal  throne.    It was in his day that Ed  ward I. of England enforced the taxation of the clergy. Seeing Edward's  success, Philip the Fair of France'  mad-e a similar attempt. Against this,  revolt on the part of these two kings,  Boniface issued the Bull "Clericiis.  Laicos," excommunicating kir.gs who/|  should tax tire cergy.  In the light that followed, several]  Bulls were issued, culminating in that'  entitled "Unani Sanctam," wherein \\\q\  Pope asserted his power by declaring-  that it is necessary to salvation to be-'  lieve that "every human being is subject to the Pontiff of Rome."  If Rome is right and. the Pope is infallible,  that Bull  forever settles thei  question for you and me.  We must now lift the curtain our  Canadian school books have so carefully let drop and view the life of this  man who claims such dues.  The quarrel between Philip the Fair  and Boniface VIII. became a mortal  one.  Tbe King appealed to "a. general  council and a legitimate Pope."  The States General of France, under  Philip's suggestion, entertained four  propositions: ���������  1. That Boniface was not the true  Pope.  2. That he was a heretic.  3. That he was a Simoniac.  4. That he was a man weighted  down with crimes!  Amongst a long list of charges preferred against Boniface before the  States-General were these:  That Boniface neither believed in  the immortality or incorruptibility of  the soul.   Nor in a life to come.  That he did not observe tbe fasts of |  the church, nor even Lent  That he spoke of the Cardinals,^  Monks and Friars as hypocrites.  That the Holy Land had been lost^  through his fault.  That the subsidies for its relief had^  been embezzled by him.  That his predecessor, Celestine,]  through his inhumanity, had been'  brought to death.  That he had said that fornication i  and other obscene practices are no]  sin. N . .  That he was a sodomite and had!  ���������aused clerks to be murdered in his]  presence. . . >  That he had enriched himself by]  simony.  That his nephew's wife had borne|  him two illegitimate children.  These, with other and even more re*|  voltlng charges, were sworn to upon]  the holy Gospels.  .   But Boniface did not live to face thei  trial.    He  was ��������� arrested and. throwt  into prison ln Rome, where he.died.  His successor, Benedict XL, reignedl  but a short year and died poisoned by|  a basket of figs, presented to him bj  a veiled woman.  Philip of France now made terms  with Bernard de Goth, archbishop  Bordeaux, and controlling with thi  aid of the Colonnas, the College ol  Cardinals, Bernard became Clement VJ  and the residence of the Pope wa^  moved from Rome to Avignon is  France, where it remained for 73 years  One of the conditions stipulated bj  Philip with Bernard wa6 "the corideml  nation of the memory of Boniface."

The proceedings occupied  many months. Many witnesses were  examined. The main points witnessed  to were these:  Boniface, had declared his belief  that there was no such thing as Divine  law.  What was reputed as such was  merely the invention of men to keep  the vulgar in awe by the terrors of  eternal punishment.  That it was a falsehood to assert the  Trinity and fatuous to believe it.  That  it was falsehood to say that  a virgin had brought forth, for it was  I an impossibility.  That Xianity is false, because it asserts a future life, of which there is  no evidence save that of visionary  people.  That Boniface had been, heard to  declare: "God may do the worst with  me that He pleases in the future life;  I believe, as .every educated man believes, the vulgar believe otherwise:  "We have to speak as they, db;" but  we must believe and think with" the  few." '  That Boniface in disputing had maintained that "Neither body or soul rise  again."  As far as his views are concerned,  Boniface would have made a first-class  higher critic had he lived today.  The Prlmocerio of St. John's, Naples,  deposed that when a Cardinal, Boniface had said, In his presence, "So  that God gives me the good things of  this life, I care not a bean for that, to  come. A man has no more soul than  a beast. Did yon ever see anyone that  has risen from the^-dead?" 1  , A multitude of witnesses testified  to such immoralities and lewdness in  his private, life, that I can not even  name.  The; trial was never finished. Compromise secured that���������  Clement issued a Bull exalting Philip  of France, attributing his actions to  piety, exempting him from all blame,  and annulling past Bulls prejudicial  lo hitn.  Philip abandoned all further action.  In 1312 three Cardinals appeared  before the Council of Venice to defend the orthodoxy and holy life of.  Pope Boniface VIII. Two knights  threw down their gauntlets to maintain his Innocence by wager of hattlel  There was no-accuser! No one took  up the gage! And so Boniface VIII  passed on Into cannonization and the  system of the Papacy was saved. But  never again to possess the unquestioned power of former days.  The evidence given was published  far and wide, and the appalling fact  from the Pope and all his system to  the Word of God. 7  Listen to Sayanarola as he thunders  forth the Word of God in Florence:���������  "God- remits the sin of man and justifies Him by His Grace. Count the  number of saved ones upon earth, and  I will tell you the number ot compassions in Heaven���������for not one is saved  by works! No man can boast of himself, and if, in the presence of God. the  Saints were asked, "Were you saved  by any strength of your own?" all with  one voice would reply, "Not to us,  O Lord, but to thy name be the glory!  Therefore, O! God, I seek Thy mercy  and bring not unto Thee any righteous,  ness of mine. When Thy grace has  justified me, then shall Thy righteousness be mine. For Grace is their  righteousness of God. O! Man! so  long as Thou hast not believed, thou  art destitute of grace by reason of sin,  O! God! save me by Thy righteousness. That is to say, by Thy Son. the  alone, righteousness One among men."  It was the infamous Pope. Borgia,  that in 1497 issued a brief against  Savonarola, and in 1498 torture and  the faggot topk the Saint, whilst the  hellhound Pope continued to claim  that in tnie Apostolic succession from  Peter, He was the'only dispenser of  the grace of God on-'earth. .'

And says: "I do not hesitate to  state my conviction that, the chief fac-  tor in the transformation of the spiritual life of the Koreans has. been the  great system of Bible-training classes.  In these classes the whole church,  young'and old, literate and Illiterate, is  given systematic education and training..

Philip the Fair, King of France, had  driven the first nail in the coffin of  Papacy. .From that day to this its  power has declined.  'The stay of the Papal court at Avignon; :was marked by a cynically voluptuous and licentious life. When Benedict XII greeted the. Cardinals who  had just elected him, it was in these  words:    "You have chosen an ass."  Tradition ascribes to his life the  origin of the saying, "As drank as a  Pope."  Petrarch speaks of Avignon as a  vast brsthel. He lived there. His  own sister was ruined by Pope John  XXII.  Lower and lower sank the Papacy  until just one generation before the  Reformation.  Rodriga Borgia bought his way to  the Papal throne. Publicly driving  four mules, ladened with silver, into  thw palace of Sforza. the most influential of the Cardinals. Borgia ascended the Papal throne under the .name  of Alexander VI. I need not describe  to you conditions under tire Morgias.  Nothing pagan Rome ever saw equalled that, reign in lust, rapine and  bloodshed.  Pope Borgia died poisoned by sweetmeats prepared by his own hand, for  a wealthy Cardinal, who, learning ot  the Pope's design, bribed the attendant to place the poisoned candy before  the Pope.  This, then,, was the outcome of the  departure from  the Word  of God.  Do not misunderstand me. Rome  was not wholly bad. It had then and  still Iras the Word of God. But it had  hidden that precious Word of 'Truth  under so many traditions -that few  ever reached. Such names as Peter  Waldo of Lyons Wickliffe in England,  John Huss in Bohemia, Anselm of Canterbury, Jerome Savonarolii in Florence, John Knox in Scotland, John  Calvin in Switzerland, luarlin Luther  in Germany, the Huguenots in France.

ONE DOLLAR OVERALLS A SPECIALTY.  ���������H  *  A   COURAGEOUS   ENGLISHWOMAN  The.words oi" Thomas Hood, '"Stitch,\  stitch, stitch, in  poverty, hunger and:  dirt," kept coursing through the brain;  of the deaconess as she left the little',.  house in the back alley where the hum  of the factory ar.d    unhealthy    odors j  from, the   adjacent  stables  made  lifet  almost unbearable.    And yet she felt  that the quotation was not entirely, ap-i  plicable.     Poverty   and   hunger   were;  truly there, but the home, with its two!  little rooms was as clean as the frail,  busy woman could take time to make  it, for was she not the one who stood  between her loved ones and starvation,  ai?d who endeavored by her needle to  eke out a hare existence for herself,!  an   invalid   husband   and   their  three  children,   Phyllis,   Charlie,   and   little  Fred, only-a year and a half old? I  They were living on a little garden  farm in England when the trouble in  the Transvaal broke out, and all the  soldiers were called into service. Tbe  young husband was among the first  who enlisted, for he was strong and  brave, of splendid physique, and eager  to fight for his country. He had gone  some weeks when their first child was  born, and the days that had been so  long for the lonely little woman were  filled with happiness, until one day  word came that her husband had been  wounded b.v a gunshot In the thigh. He  was in the hospital for months and owing to his splei'lid vitality recovered  sufficiently to return to his place in  the army, and was able to finish 12  years of service, but, retiring then  he thus debarred himself of a pension..  He and  his  little family came to  Canada and found employment on a  farm.   Ills strength, however, was not  sufficient for the work, and bis health;  giving way, they   came   to   Toronto.  Gradually the muscles of    his ;,. thigh  wasted away, and with the additional  misfortune  of a tumor  in  bis  back,  he is now an invalid, depending upon  the efforts of his wife for maintenance.  She, with the courage born of desperation, took up the burden of the breadwinner, and with tbe independence of  one who would rather starve than beg,  she has been able to pay house/rent,  and provide the bare necessities tor  . her family by taking in sewing trom a  factory.   She is obliged to sew from  morning till night, as she is paid the  beggarly pittance of fifty-flye cents a  dozen tor overalls, seven cents for a  j pair of. pants, and twelve cents .for a  | coat, and pays for the thread she uses.  i The deaconess marvelled that she was  (able to make enough to provide food  jfor lier family, not to mention the ad-  ' ditional expense of clothing.  JCow, when the season is slack, no  work was forthcoming from the factory, she had to endure the agony of  seeing the children pine for want of  proper  food.    She  was* too  proud  to  let   her   wants   be   known   until   she  j was   discovered   by    the    deaconess,  j whose offers of assistance the braye  woman accepted only on condition that  she  would  sew for ali she  received.  "The deaconess was able to secure remnants of heavy material, the kind gift  I of a merchant, and it is marvellous.  I how b.v planning and    piecing    what  i beautiful little ''"garments", this wotnari  makes  for the Deaconess Homes, to  be given out to children in some other  poor family who are not sufficiently  clothed for winter.    In return for all  this a kind friend of   the   deaconess  packs a basket of food from her own  table each day, which finds it way in  lthe evening to the home in the nilev  Then, too, a Sunday School class of  High School giiis from Bethsada have  provided   milk  tickets,   so   that   little  j Fred is able to have a pint of milk  each day for the next two months.  The pathetic but happy-smile of the  mother lingers in the memory of the  deaconessl and she seems to hear  again the mother's words: "The ohild-  ' ren are so elad now, tbey have enough  to eat. We are all glad, everything is  different." .Yet whe:: we think cf the  winter before them we sigh. Have  we numbered onr b'ess:rr;s in com-  parison with theirs, and are we thankful?
