It cost South Vancouver $50.  Councillor Winram had agreed with the owner  of a 25 foot lot to rough clear same, and pay besides $50 for an easement through said lot for a  box drain.  Councillor Thomas brought ;his knowledge of  municipal law to beai^ upon,this case, and objected on the ground that it".was" not legal for the  council to clear that lot. Councillor Gold sustained Councillor Thomas, but agreed to pay $100".  for an easement without any condition as to  rough clearing. "     ^   .  The owner was tickled to death at the pro-  posaFbf the Old War Horse, and the Babe, because it was just $50 more into his pocket. It  transpires that on account of one large stump,'  covering the whole width of the lot* the council  will have to rough clear the lot anyhow, and pay  $100 instead of $50 for easement besides.  Thereupon Reeve Dickie suggested that when  a municipal solicitor was appointed the legal  mind of Councillor Thomas would gain a much  needed rest. .     v '   /   -  Councillor Thomas - replied that the .voters  had put him there because of his superior legal  acumen. Upon which Reeve, Dickie w%s kind  enough' to remark that '"he was beginning to  thing the ratepayers of Ward Three had made a  mistake." - \���������       '>���������;.;/.

Nothing whatever has been gained or can  be gained'by a continuance of the "fool" policy  that had at first blush such an appearance of  wisdom. Vulgar rudeness is not business smartness,' and the Reeve is right when he demands  decency and self respect on the council.  The folly of the "two-handed sword" policy  of Councillor Gold is being exemplified every  week. The Qbinese -laundry- dilemma -caused by  the granting' of a building permit by the new  Building Inspector, without consulting the council, is but one instance of the failure of the Gold  policy. The dismissal of efficient officials and  clerks in the different departments and the replacing of them by men unfamiliar with the work  will cost the municipality dear to say nothing of  the ugly precedent laid down.

There were and are many difficulties attached  to the cleaning up of Mexico, but difficulties are  no sufficient reason for neglect of duty.  The chief difficulty���������and the one that' has  perhaps chiefly retarded action in this instance  is "What to do with Mexico after she has been  conquered?" -      ..  To add a population of from 15 to 18, millions  in contiguous territory to the United States is to  bring about a vote problem there that may well  call for hesitation.- Spaniards, Indians, Greasers  (half-breeds), all more or less under the domination of Rome and capable of being combined with  the present Ronton vote in U- S. ������^nd holding completely the balance of power there, just as, Rome,  through Irish Nationalism, holds the balance of  power today in Britain. This is a consummation  that United* States has long dreaded, and which  really wrought the overthrow of "The Plumed  Knight,"' (James G. Blaine)', when he posed before the American people as the advocate of a  United North: America. ���������  But no matter what the difficulties in sight���������  "the United4jjates should long ago have shouldered  "The White Man's Burden," and set Mexico in  order/',;-'.  V Now, with Hawaia, Porto Rico, Cuba, the  Phillipines and Mexico���������the young, strong, able  Republic in America takes her place alongside the  weary Titon in the Island Kingdom in bringing  decency and peace to countries that have long  known neither. '"���������"Peace if we have to fight for  it," has long been Britain's motto. America has  now taken her place fully among the. nations of  the earth, and because she is of our:V,blood and  genius she will take-up the cry, nor be deterred  by those in her midst who think that cowardice  is holiness, and fighting in a just cause, sin.  President Wilson by his very goodness of disposition and character has been led to delay too  long, but will, we believe; do the work more  thoroughly now that he has begun-  The military task of subduing Mexico wilL not  be easy, and may be tremendously complicated by  the Central and South American Republics mak  ing common cause with Mexico. When the dogs  of war are unleashed it is never safe to say where  they may run. But the U. S. has been-quietly  preparing for the task for many months, and has  doubtless, through diplomatic channels secured  the assent of the Powers interested so that the  area of conflict will be restricted.  "������ The real task will be the pacifying of the conquered people, and will present some intensely interesting problems for solution.  Mexican War Affects Senate  Washington, April 23.  One result of the outbreak of the Mexican  war and the energetic action of President Wilson  will be the passing of the repeal bill on canal tolls  by the Senate with an^ overwhelming majority.  A majority of 16 seemed to be assured in any case,  but what has taken place in Mexico has convinced  the Senate, and the House as well, that the President was justified in recommending the repeal.  The heart of the President's message to. Congress on the tolls was:  "I ask this of you in support of the foreign  policy of the administration. I shall not know  how to. deal with other matters of even greater  delicacy, and nearer consequences if you do not  grant it to me-in ungrudging measure."  , Patriotism has now supplanted partisanship-  With the outbreak of war with' Mexico it is imperative that the United States should be on such  terms with other powers as to prevent any of  them taking advantage of our pre-occupation.  Great Britain is evidently the key to the situation. If Britain shall frown on any European  combine against the United States or upon any  atempt of Japan to force our hands with respect  to alien lan^d laws, we will not be disturbed in  our thankless task of restoring peace and order  in Mexico.  It is imperative that the United States should  have the confidence and good will of. the civilized world at the present juncture. There can be  no question that the entire civilized world has  been against us in the matter of Canal Tolls. The  speedy passing of the Repeal Bill by the Senate  will do more to re-establish us in the good will  of the nations than any action that could now  be taken. '  PUTT AGAINST ULSTER  The zone of intense excitement hta changed V-  once again.' Little is heard from Ulster,'bat, the,.;  battle waxes hotter at Westminster. Passionate^/  charges and counter charges are being hurled' '  back and forth, and Bonnar Law, the leader of t  the opposition, has deliberately/and pointedly ac- /  cused the premier of making false statements. "*- ,>,_'  It is exceedingly difficult, at tflis distance* to-*  form any distinct opinion as to the right and ;_  wrong of the parliamentary situation, but from \'  the White paper issued by the Government this   >  week it is quite apparent that orders were given *  for the despatch of His Majesty's forces without ;  the consent or knowledge of Premier Asquith,"  and that when he became aware of such orders he :  suggested that they be countermanded, winch  suggestion was as we all know carried out by'  -wireless.  The alleged "Plot against Ulster" is stated'  and re-stated time and again with such accom- .  panying detail of incident that the refusal to ap-*  point a judicial commission- of enquiry to take ~~  evidence under oath will convince those favoring  Ulster's cause that these accusations are true.  In the meantime expressions of sympathy for  Ulster crowd one another from every corner of-/  the Empire, and it becomes abundantly evident/'  that any attempt to coerce Ulster will cause a'  revolt that will shake the Empire to its foundations.       /^rC/_ ' ^TS* ���������-*��������� ' .    i   -  Whatever'else is done then we can feel sure" i  that this will be avoided.   And with this the,out- ���������,-  sider must rest content for it looks as if even  those at the heart of things scarcely know what a '  day may bring forth-' _ ' ���������   ^ '' _  * The incident at Winnipeg last week may be  taken as a gauge-of the kind of loyalty-to King  and Empire we could expect from Ireland; under  Home Rule.   At a great Romanist banquet tbe /  toast to the Pope was put ahead of that of tbe  King.   The Lieutenant-Governor and many other  dignitaries  refused to go���������amongst them   Mr.   .  Deacon, Mayor of Winnipeg.   Aa a compromise',  it-was agreed that "God Save the King" should  be sung at the beginning of the banquet, then  the toast to the Pope, and the toast to the King  omitted altogether.   Mayor Deacon, according to  press reports, accepted this compromise.   The incident, of course, is a puerile one, and absolutely  unimportant of itself.   We admire the tenacity of  the Romanist in sticking out for a long ago; exploded idea of the over lordship of the Pope.   As  :to Mayor Deacon we refrain from expressing our  opinion.  The"whole incident, however, gives the reason  why Ulster prefers to face all that the present  British Government can hurl against it rather  than yield ������n iota in the constitutional _battle_she   is waging for the preservation of the Union.  ' 4  Ls  if ������|  .   Vl  'The Rev. D. S. Phelan, Roman priest at St.������  Louis, Mo., said in a sermon preached there and  printed in the Western Watchman June 27, 1912:  Tell us we are Catholics first and Americans  or Englishmen afterwards; of course we are- Tell  us, in the conflict between the church and. the  civil government we take the side of the church;  of course we do. Why, if the government of the  United States were at war with the church, we  would say tomorrow, To bell with tbe government of the United States; and if the church and  all the governments of the world were at war, we  would say, To bell with all tbe governments of tbe  world. . . . Why is it that in this country,  where we have only seven per cent, of the population/the Catholic Church is so much feared? She  is loved by all her children, and feared by everybody. Why is it the Pope has such tremendous  power? Why, the Pope is the ruler of the world.  All the emperors, all the kings, all the princes,  all the presidents of the. world, are as these altar  boys of mine.   The Pope is the ruler of the world.  Now, we admire Phelan in his courageous utterance���������just asFwe despise Deacon for his cowardice, but with such expressions which are being  constantly reiterated, and such incidents, as at  Winnipeg, which are of constant occurrence, one  exactly similar happening quite recently in Ytk-  couver���������can anyone blame Ulster for standing up  for her rights as guaranteed inthe Act of Union.  BILLY SUNDAY REVIVAL  NEXT FALL AT WINNIPEG  Winnipeg, Man., April 21���������After a red hot  meeting of the Ministerial Association yesterday,  characterized by plain speaking,-the ministers  present by a straight vote of 17 to 9 decided that  it would be in the best interests to have Rev^ Billy  Sunday come to Winnipeg this fall to conduct a  religious revival.

McKay Station, Burnaby  "Why We Are Protestants"  Mr. Chairman, Brethren, and Fellow Citizens:  I hail the presence of so many ministers of different Protestant churches and so many leading  members of different Protestant churches in this  vast audience as an evidence that the pressure  of the conflict with Rome is drawing us closer together (Applause.) We are finding out, I venture to say, that the things in which we agree are  more important by far than the things in which  we differ.   (Applause.)  A Word of Explanation  Now, sir, no apology is necessary at any time  for setting forth the reasons why we occupy the ,  position we do; but, as you have already intimated, Mr. Chairman, the time is opportune for this  exposition of tbe Protestant faith, 'because of the  Mission to "non-Catholics," as they offensively  call us, recently held in St. Patrick's church, for  'the express purpose of proselyting our Protestant people. Why,' my friends and brethren, so  eager were the Paulist Fathers to let us know  all about it that some of them, or one of them, or  some representative of theirs, came into the vestibule of my church and tacked the notice of the  lectures on my bulletin! Well, I took notice 1  (Applause.)  In the Mission, the doctrines of Protestantism  have been assailed, as usual, and every argument  known to those skillful controversialists has been'  employed to seduce Protestants from their allegiance. In these notices and in the public press,  Protestants have, as I have said, been dominated  "non-Catholics." Now we resent that nomenclature. We Protestants are "catholics" in the  true sense of the word.- In-our creed we say, "I  believe in the Holy Catholic church," and we do.  On tne other hand, we refuse to yield to the,  church of Rome the name "Catholic." It is the  greatest arrogance for that church to appropriate  that great and venerable term. I know of no  church upon earth that has so little claim to be  called Catholic as the church of Rome.  vUnder the circumstances now described, it has  been felt by the ministers at whose invitation I  am here, that the time is opportune for a definition and a defense of the Protestant faith.-  Now, I am not here to attack the Roman,  church, but to defend Protestantism from the attacks which have been leveled against it. But in  repelling these attacks, it will -become necessary  to expose some of the contradictions and absurdities and inconsistencies that are involved in the  doctrines of that church. .1, however,,am not responsible for that; but those who by assailing  our faith, and doing everything in their power to  draw our people from their allegiance, have made  ~it necessary for us to expose what we believe to be  tho unreasonableness of the faith of the Roman  church.  Protestantism Not a Series of Negations.  Now, first of all, and before entering particularly upon exhibition, of the grounds upon which  we protest against-the doctrine and practice of  the Church of Rome, I desire to make two brief  preliminary remarks. The first is that Protest-  ism is not, as commonly represented, a mere series  of negations,���������denying error rather than affirming truth; repudiating false doctrine rather than  proclaiming the true. No; we write the word Protestant on our escutcheon in its full etymological  significance. A Protestant is one that bears witness for any person or thing; and a Protestant  church is one that bears witness for Christ and  his gospel in the world. It is a name not ,to. be  ashamed of, in either its origin or its history.  When our Lord Jesus Christ stood-bef ore-Pilate,  he said to himself, "To this end was I born, and  for this cause came I into the world, that I should  bear witness unto the truth." Humbly treading  in the footsteps of ker divine Lord,-the Protestant church goes forth into the world having tbis  as her aim, that she may "bear witness unto tbe  truth."  Lot was a Protestant when he stood alone for  God in the midst of wicked Sodom. The Jewish  nation was Protestant, standing among the nations of the earth, a witness for the unity of God,  the supremacy of conscience, and the sancity of  the moral law. And, supreme instance! let it  never be forgotten that Christ and his apostles  were Protestants in their day. They were  Protestants for the truth of God, against  the traditions and corruptions of the  Jewish hierarchy, the established church  of that day. And they not only bore witness for the revelation made in the incarnation  of the Son of God, but they bore witness against  the false doctrines of the scribes and Pharisees,  the chief priests and elders of the church. In  like manner and in fulfillment of the injunction  of the great Head of the church, our Protestant  churches bear witness among men today, not only  positively, for "the faith which was once delivered unto the saints," but negatively, against  the manifold corruptions of that faith for which  the Church of Rome is responsible. And, therefore, they bear on their escutcheon the glorious  word Protestant,���������the witness bearers.  Protestants Are Not Heretics Nor Separatists  The other introductory remark I have to make  is that though we are Protestants, we are not  heretics nor separatists.    (Applause.)  In 1868 the late Pope Pius IX. addressed letters  "to Protestants and other non-Catholics," inviting  them to return to the bosom of the Holy Mother  Church, as the only means of insuring their salvation. ��������� '-"V  Now, we deny that we have ever separated  from the Catholic Church. One of the articles of  our faith is, "I believe in the Holy Catholic  Church," and in this we claim and enjoy full  membership, by the same Spirit which joins in one  communion and fellowship "the blessed company  of ail faithful people." In fact, thVPope and his  adherents are the innovators and heretics who  have departed from "the faith once delivered,"  who have corrupted the Christian creed; and not  the Protestants, who have rejected Rome's novelties and returned to the creed and the practice of  the primitive ages of Christianity. Yes, it is the  Church of Rome, and not the Protestant churches,  which, by her errors and usurpations has separated herself from the Catholic Church of Christ.  When she departed from the primitive faith, she  became heretical; and when, she made the acl  knowledgment of her erroneous and strange doctrines a condition of membership within her com-  nfunion, she then forced upon men the alternative  of separating from her or of abandoning the  faith which they were bound to "contend for."  Luther and Melanchthon, Calvin and Beza, Cran-  mer and Ridley and Latimer,���������all that noble  band of reformers in the sixteenth century, chose  the former alternative. They decided to obey God  rather than men. Were they therefore heretics?  Was it heresy to obey Christ and Christ's unchangeable truth rather than abandon these for  the sake of union with a Church which had apostatized from the faith and required all her members to acquiesce in her apostasy?���������INay, was  not she the1 heretic who, abandoning the Holy  Scrip'tures as her guide, taught for doctrines the  commandments of men? Let it be remembered,  also, that as far as the Church of England was  concerned, 'the reformation was a rebellion  against a foreign yoke, and the restoration of the  original ecclesiastical authority. The British  church had existed for centuries in entire independence of Rome. It had produced martyrs to  .the faith in the reign of Diocletian. It had sent  bishops to the Councils of Aries (A.D. 314), Sar-  .dica (A.D. 347), and Ariminum (A.D. 359). It  had held numerous synods of its own. As to its  orthodoxy, St. Jerome and St. Chrysostom had  both borne testimony to it. But it was not until  the seventh century that the Church of Rome  gained a footing on the island. Her pretensions  to exercise authority over the British church were  resisted. The bishops of the native church refused to yield their customs or to receive Augus-  . tine as their archbishop. They resisted for more  than a, century the attempt of Rome to bring  them into subjection. In short, the Church of  England of that day became Romanised only  after an ineffectual protest and a prolonged resistance on the part of the native episcopate.  ' Scripture Versus Tradition  Now, my friends, I come to the substantive  part of my address this afternoon. Why are we  Protestants,? I reply, First of all, we are Protestants because we build our faith and hope on the  impregnable,jfock of Holy'Scripture, and not on  the shifting sands of ecclesiastical tradition. The  Bible, and the Bible alone, is the basis of the. religion of Protestants; but-tradition, interpreting  the Bible, and often superseding it and contradicting it, is the basis of the religion of Romanists.  (Now when I use the term Romanist, I beg you  to observe that I am using a term which has for  authority, no less a person than John H. Newman himself, for be published a book called "Lectures on Romanism and Popular Protestantism."  Therefore, if instead of calling that church the  Catholic church, I speak of it as Romanism, % am'  simply adopting the language of John H. Newman.) We follow the teachings of Jesus Christy  and his-apostles in building our faith only on the  revelation of truth contained in the Bible-  "Search the Scriptures/' Christ said. The  Scripture cannot be broken.1  The Church of Rome, on the contrary, builds  her doctrines upon a double basis,���������tbe Bible and  _ tradition; but by_ making.tradition the authoritative interpreter of the Bible, she really rests, not  upon the teaching of the Bible, but upon the  teaching of tradition.  Now, that is a serious charge. I wish to prove  it. The creed of Pope Pius IV., which was published in A.D. 1564, and has ever since been the  universal symbol of doctrine in the Roman  Church, declares as follows:  1. "I most firmly admit and embrace the  apostolical and ecclesiastical traditions, and all  other observances and constitutions of the said  church.  2. I admit also Holy Scripture, according to  that sense which. Holy Mother Church, to whom it  appertains to judge of the true meaning and interpretation of the Sacred Scriptures, hath holden  and still holds."  / Now compare with this the language of the  Council ofTrent: "The Holy Ecumenical and  General Council of Trent . . . receives and  venerates'with equal affection of piety and reverence all the books of the Old and the New Testament, ... as also the said .traditions, as  well those pertaining to faith as to morals, . .  preserved in the Catholic Church by a continuous  succession."  A Fundamental Error  Here, then, is the first, as it is the fundamental, error against which we protest,���������the making  tradition, i. e., the alleged oral teaching of the  apostles, handed down from their times, of equal  authority with the written word of God.; and the  declaration that the Sacred Scriptures are to be  admitted only in the sense in which the Roman  Church explains them. The sixth article of the  Church of England declares, on the contrary, that  "Holy Scripture containeth all things necessary  to'salvation; so that whatsoever is not read therein, nor majf be proved thereby, is not to be required of any man that it should be believed as  an article of faith." When this is denied, the  very foundations pf the faith are sapped. Our  feet no longer stand on the rock of God's written  Word, but upon the uncertain and shifting sands  of tradition. No wonder that the Church of  Rome has been "carried about by every wind of  doctrine," since she has cast anehpr upon Mich  treacherous ground. For, mark you, as if it were  not a sufficient impiety to declare the traditions  -  (Continued on Page 3) V  Terminal City Press, Ltd.  203=207 Kingsway  COMMERCIAL  PRINTING  Your Printing Orders will  receive prompt and careful attention.

of. men to be of ebpial authority with the written
Word of God, she really exalts tradition above
the Word, by making that the rule of interpretation. " ^ '
The False Decretals .
Let me give you an example to show how far
the traditions to which the Church of Borne appeals are to be depended on. In the ninth century a 'tremendous forgery arose, under the name
pf the Isidorian decretals,, consisting of nearly'one
hundred letters, written in the names of earlier
bishops of Borne, together with certain spurious
writings of oth&* cliarch dignitaries, and acts of
hitherto unknown councils. These documents
were eagerly seized upon by Nicholas I., who was
Pope at that time, and by him and his successors
were made the instrument of completely revolutionizing the constitution of the church, and developing the papal power, from a mere primacy, into
an absolute ecclesiastical despotism. For centuries these false decretals were accepted as genuine;
but for over three hundred years their true character has been known, and they have been on all
hands admitted to be a forgery, and a very clumsy
forgery at'that. Even the most extreme partisans of Rome now admit this,���indeed, the popes
themselves have admitted it, yet the radical
changes which they were the instruments of introducing, remain.
Now, one cannot help asking, What dependence is to be placed on the traditions which the
Church of Borne professes to have preserved since
the time of the apostles,/ if she thus accepted for
so many centuries this gross forgery, and made it
the support and foundation of doctrines and
usages she has insisted on as vital to the true constitution of the church? And this is only one of
numerous examples in which the infallible Church
of Rome has accepted and magnified the authority"
of documents ~ which have- subsequently- been
proved and admitted to be forgeries. But if she
is thus incapable of distinguishing the true from
the false in the writings and documents of her
own bishops and synods, how are we to trust her
when she presents us with alleged traditions
handed down from the age of the apostles? And
how can we do otherwise than protest against her
impiety when we see the plainest declarations of
the Sacred Scriptures made void by her pretended
traditions? In our Saviour's time the Pharisees
appealed to tradition, but our Lord made his appeal ever to the Scriptures. He changed them
with transgressing the commandments of God by
their traditions. His words to them are most applicable today to the Church1 of Rome: "Thus
have,ye made the commandment of God of none
effect by your tradition." Matt. 15:6. "In vain
they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the
commandments of men." Verse 9: He said to
the Jews, "Search the Scriptures." He never
said, Search your traditions.
There are the words, and there is the authority, of our Lord and Saviour Jesus $hrist against
the method which the Church of Rome adopts in
asking us to accept her traditions as the basis of
doctrine. " -    . t-   ,
Roman Catholic Interpretation of Scripture
But again, the Roman Catholic hierarchy
teaches that the Bible is to be accepted only according to the sense which the church puts upon
it. Now, perhaps you would like to have a sample
or two of the. interpretations of this infallible
church. Well, here is one of many that might be
given. What do you suppose is the chief passage
relied upon to establish the dogma of papal infallibility? -Here it is in our Lord's words to St.
Peter: "Satan hath desired to have you, tbat he
may sift you as wheat; but I have prayed for
thee, that thy faith fail not; and when thou art
converted, strengthen thy brethren" Luke 22:
31-32., This, we are told by Romanist interpreters
since Pope Agatho, A.P. 680, contains the grant
of special privilege to the bishops of Rome as successors of St. Peter. And this, although not one
of the eighteen Fathers who comment upon this
passage gives any hint of such an interpretation!
I give another precious example of infallible
interpretation. You know the popes have claimed
power to rule thewnations, and how do you suppose this is proved from Holy Scripture? How?
Just listen, listen and tremble; it is very simple.
St. Peter walked on the sea! Q- E. D. (quod erat
demonstrandum!)    (Applause.)
This is conclusive evidence that the successors
of St. Peter are entitled to rule the nations! Do
you not see it? If you do not. you must be very
dull. It was declared by Pope Innocent III. in a
letter addressed to the patriarch of Constantinople, in which he claimed that ''Christ had committed the government of the whole world to the
'.popes."" -      '..* ,; '������������
Such interpretations as these, proceeding from
the supposed infallible popes,���in conflict with
common, sense, in conflict with the laws of sound
exegesis, in conflict with the exposition given by
the Fathers of the church,���may serve to show-
how deceitfully the Church of Rome deals with
Holy Scripture-
Dr. Preston's Charges
A famous controversialist of the Church of
Rome, some years ago, was the vicar-general Rev.
Dr. Thomas S. Preston. He said that private
interpretation,���that terrible old thing, you know,
private judgment,���"private interpretation has
virtually declared the Bible to be of straw." But
I say that papal and Roman interpretation has
actually used the Bible as a nose of wax, to be
pressed into whatever shape the exigencies of their
case may require.
Again: Dr. Preston says: "Protestantism
has torn the Bible to pieces." Think of it, ye
Protestants, and repent of your sins! However,
even that is not so bad as burning it, is it? (Applause.) For the leaves of the torn Bible, borne
by the winds of heaven over the earth, may carry
the message of life and immortality to mankind;
-7-the single verse, ''God so loved the world, that
he gave his only begotten Son," once led a poor
Hindu out of his heathen darkness into light;���
but, when it is burned, its power to bless is gone,
,���for men cannot read its message in its ashes,���
and the only voice it then has is anathema against
the sacreligious hand that committed it to the
fire. v -
> Roman Doctrines Not in the Bible ���
Let me repeat, thent with emphasis: If any
man asks why we are Protestants^ I answer, Because the doctrines of the Church of Rome which
we are called upon to accept as necessary to salvation cannot be found in the Bible. Do yon"
think that is a large order to prove? Well,- I
shall not attempt to prove it; but I shall just
hide myself behind the opinion of a great cardinal. You know that is a very safe place to be.
The late Cardinal Wiseman, in writing about
the way| in which Romanists are-sometimes converted, or perverted, as he would say, to Protestantism, said this: '/The history, in every case
is simply this, that the individual, by some chance
or other . . . became possessed of the Word
of God, of the Bible; that he perused this book;
that he could not find in it transubstantiation or.
auricular confession, that he could not discover in
it one word of purgatory', or of worshipping images. He perhaps goes to the priest, and tells
him that he cannot find these doctrines in the
Bible; his priest argues with him, and endeavors
to convince him that he should shut up the book
that is leading him astray; he perseveres, he
abandons the communion of the Church of Rome,
. . . and becomes a Protestant- Now, in all
this the man was a Protestant from the beginning;
he started witbthe principle that whatever is not
in that book cannot be true religion, or an article
of faith; and that is the principle of Protestantism. He took Protestantism, therefore, for granted, before he began to examine the Catholic doctrine. He set out with the supposition that whatever is not in the Bible is no part of God's truth;
he does not find certain things in the Bible, and
concludes that, therefore, the religion that holds
these is not the true religion of Christ"���"Lectures on the Principal Doctrines and Practices of
the Catholic Church," Baltimore, 1846, page 16.
The man who wrote these words was an eminent prince of the church,���a prince who. if he
were here, the Boston Pilot would tell you was entitled to precedence over our senators, x>ver our
representatives, over the judges of the Supreme
Court, over the Vice-President o f the United
States, over the foreign ambassadors, over everybody on the face of this big continent except the
President; and if a ship hearing him should come
into port, it should be welcomed by salvos of artillery suitable to the heir apparent to the throne!
(This was said, not of a dead cardinal, but of a
living cardinal. I think his name is O Connell.)
Here, then, is a distinct acknowledgment- by
an eminent prince of the church, a noted controversialist, that neither transubstantiation, nor
auricular confession, nor pugatory, nor; worshipping of images is found in the Bible. ^ We agree
ex animo with this illustrious representative of
Rome. The same is true of all the peculiar doctrines of that church. -   v
Home's Teachings Contrary to Scripture and to
���  < tbe Fathers
Once more I say. We 'are Protestants because
the peculiar doctrines of the Church of Rome are
contrary to Holy Scripture, contrary to the teachings of the Fathers of the church.   We are Protestants because we refuse to believe the Virgin
Mary more merciful than Jesus Christ; or that
she is our mediator with God; or that she is the
mother of God; or that she was horn without sin.
We are Protestants because Jhe doctrine of the
mass has no foundation in Holy Scripture; and I
might add, no manner or sort of affiliation   or
association or connection with the great American national Thanksgiving festival-    (Long continued applause.)    We are Protestants because
the invocation of saints has no foundation in Holy
Scripture; because the power of the priest to sit
in the tribunal of penance and pronounce judicial absolution on the penitent, has no foundation
in Scripture; because the doctrine of papal infallibility finds no support,either in the BiMe, or
in the primitive Fathers of the church.
, As to Certainty of Troth
But then, O my friends, it is alleged that there
is no agreement among .Protestants as to the doc-,
trines contained in the Bible-; and that this results from the principle of private judgment,
which produces endless divisions and differences
among them; and then it is declared triumphantly
that God is not the author of confusion, and
therefore God cannot be the author of Protestantism! Q. E. D. (I Kke these Q. E. D.'s.) One
of the arguments most earnestly pressed in the
recent Misison in this city was that there can be
no certainty of truth in a Protestant church, thot
certainty can be found only in an infallible
church, speaking to the world through an infallible head.
But then, is the Roman Catholic Church a
household free from differences and divisions and
conflicts? That's an interesting question, is it
not? Are its-interpretations of Scripture consistentand harmonious.       V '   "���
.���-���.-"' '' V       " ��� '
Take~ for example, the controversy about predestination^ which Dr. Preston referred to in such
a'manner as to leave his audience to suppose that
it was one of the dire results of the Reformation.
He traced the genesis of this doctrine to reformed
theology, and said, "So came the theory of predestination." What a learned man he must have
been!   (Laughter and applause.)
Well, there are one or two facts that we i..ight
quote along that line. The first is that more than
a thousand years before the Reformation the
theory of predestination was ably expounded by
St- Augustine, who is by many held to be the
greatest of the Fathers, and is claimed by the
Church of Rome as one of her theologians. The
second fact is that in the ninth eentury the, Roman Church was convulsed by this controversy in
the well known case of the monk Gottschalk, and
for ten years it raged with great fury. The third

SHEEP FARMING  Australia has'for -.many years contained, more/'  sheep, than any other country, and for half a  century has been the world's principal source of  fine Merino wools.  The wool industry was inaugurated at an  early stage of Australian settlement by the introduction of a few Spanish Merino sheep. It at  once became apparent that the conditions of Australia were extremely favorable for the production of superior wools., As settlement progressed  increased attention' was paid to the breeding of  sheep and improvement of the fleece in weight  \ and quality. The sheep of Australia in earlier  days, carried a fleece averaging about 3 1-2 lbs.  Today the average weight of the Australian  Merino fleece is nearly 8 lbs. with, in some flocks,  .' an even higher average weight..  The annual exports of Australian wool ex-  , ceed $150,000,000 in value, while about 10,000,000  lbs. of wool is retained in the Commonwealth for  manufacture locally into woollen goods, principally tweeds; underwear, blankets and rugs.  In addition to the exportation of wool the  sheep industry contributes the extent of well  over $10,000,000 worth, of frozen lamb and mutton  per annum, shipped principally to Great Britain,  South Africa and the Past.  France is the principal purchaser of Australian sheep shins carrying wool," as many as 3,561,-  771 such skins having been shipped to French,  ports from Australia during a single year.  In the course of eight years the flocks have  multiplied nearly 100 per cent., notwithstanding  the fact that during the same period the exportation of frozen mutton and iamb has increased enormously, and with the growth of the population  by nearly half a million souls the local demand  for meat has undergone a corresponding increase.  New Zealand has also proved itself specially  suited for the breeding of all classes of sheep  , from the fine combing Merino to tha strong type  Tjincoln. . Shearing commences in September; and  j8_aontirfued _tilL January^. _The_usual _price_paid-  for shearing is $5, per hundred sheep.   Shearing  machines are in fairly general use in the larger  sheds.   The average clip is from 4 lbs. to 7 lbs.  Exports.���������The following are the principal exports of New Zealand for 1912:  Wool, frozen nieat, skins and tallow. .$55,100,000  Butter and cheese  15,500,000  Gold    .'..:.... 8,739,000  Timber     2,341,000  Kauri gum   1,842,000  Grain and pulse  -.  1,685,000  Hemp, and tow   1.771,000  Sheep raising is practically unknown in British Columbia.  This is a most profitable industry that has  been sadly neglected, and yet we have great areas  of the finest sheep pastures in the world.**  Hitherto the sheep industry has been discriminated against by unjust grazing laws, but we believe the Government of B. C. is today alive to  the folly of allowing cattlemen to run the country to the exclusion of one of the most profitable  industries, and is ready to give every possible  encouragement to the cultivation and grazing of  sheep. There are millions of acres that will never  be any good for any other commercial purpose���������  that can be made revenue producers by the introduction of sheep. The climate and mountain and  valley configuration of the Lilloet district will, in  time, make it one of the famous sheep countries  of the world, and there* is hardly a flock there at  present.  Moreover, it will be an industry necessitating  smaller flocks and multiplied owners and herders,  employing relatively a much greater number of  men than'in Australia.  That which is now being strongly sought after  in Australia, namely, the breaking up of the enormous flocks and the increasing of the smaller  owners, will be largely a necessity of the case in  British Columbia-  There will be difficulties in the way, of course.  The cayote, the timber wolf, the mountain lion  ;and the bear, abound on the pasture grounds at  present, and good trails giving access to the high  summer pastures are scarce. But all these things  can be overcome and the opening up of the  Lilloet district by the advent of the locomotive  of the Pacific Great Eastern'should be the signal  for a strong immigration of those who understand sheep farming.  There is no more beautiful country in the  world���������no finer climate and no better market  anywhere on earth for all that the sheep farmer  can produce along with his flock.  Cosy, fertile valleys for winter shelter and  feed. Short winter, good means of communication and nearby market should soon transfer the  now empty Lilloet district into a land of lovely,  happy nomes, teaming with traffic.  REAL ESTATE VALUES  Winnipeg, ^Man.���������In reference to real estate  values at present time, a letter recently received  from a well known American capitalist, C. P.  Harrison, of Omaha, Nebraska, is being quoted in  Winnipeg as indicating the entire soundness of  the present situation:  The writer has been making a careful comparative study of values in New York and other leading cities, and for a high priced parcel of ground  points out the southwest corner of Nassau and  Wall streets covering 97 by 94 feet. This parcel  was assessed in 1904 for $539,000, and in 1914 for  $$200,000.  "You will see," says .the Omaha man, "that  the growth in the value of this property has been  in ten years approximately 600 per cent., or abput  60 percent, per year. One would hardly think  that property in the financial centre of New York  would parallel in growth business property in  sucn a rapidly developing city as Winnipeg; and  it should not tax our imagination to realize'that  there will be immense profit, at present prices,  "to the investor whose capital is employed in the  purchase of real estate in a city which is now  only on the threshold of its career."  The comment quoted is taken as applying to  such fast developing centres as Winnipeg, Calgary and Vancouver.  v  ALL ALASKA SWEEPSTAKE  WON BT JOHN JOHNSON  Nome, Alaska.--John Johnson, holder of the  record for the 412-mile All-Alaska Sweepstake  dog team race,- became the winner in the 1914  Alaska classic when he drove his eighteen Siberian wolves into Nome at three minutes after six  o'clock last night, having covered the 412 miles  ,over the snow and trail from Nome to Candle and  return in 81 hours and 3 minutes. A. A. "(Scotty)  Allan, driver of the Allan-Darling team of eighteen malamutes, was second, and Fred Ayer, with  his team of fourteen fox-hounds, third. -  When Johnson left Solomon, 32 miles from the  goal, shortly after noon, notice was posted on! the  bulletin board in tbe Board of Trade saloon that  he would arrive about 6 o'clock, and every man,  woman and child in the camp gathered to welcome the winner* When Johnson '9 team apt  peared over the snow, every dog in harness and  showing little effect of the long drive through the  blizzard and below-zero weather, the crowd went  wild. f ���������        ���������     \  Johnson's time was seven hours slower than  the record set by himself in 1910, when he drove  the Siberians over the course in 74 hours J4 minutes and J20 seconds. The racers were handicapped this year by stormy weather, making ,the  going slow most o������ the way-  Greatest Racing Pogs  The Siberian wolves, driven by Johnson, are  considered by experts the greatest racing dogs in.  . the world. They are a cross between tbe  "Husky," the Alaska working dog, and the Siberian wolf. They have the agility iand-endurance of the wolf, and the faithful intelligence  of the Alaskan dog. They, are light in color,  either white or grey, with a' shaggy coat. Johnson's dogs are carefully selected; the driver him--  self m'aking annual trips to the east coast of Siberia to obtain material for his team. He trains  his team'by constant work on the trail, making  long trips to camps in the country surrounding-  Nome, and watches \he work of the aniamls even  more closely than a jockey watches his mount.   ^  Although this is the first, time Johnson hits  won a sweepstake race since his team set the record four years ago, he has always been considered  a dangerous competitor. Three years ago he was  beaten by "Scotty" Allan after he was stricken  with snow blindness at mile 289. Two years, ago  ' he was unable to drive; being ice bound on the  Siberian shore, where he had gone in the early  fall to obtain fresh dogs, and last year he finished  second to "Fay Delzene, who did not" enter this  year's race. -   v~  The cold virtually put Allan and Ayer out of  the running, the teams of both drivers becoming  lame from frost nipped feet. During the last  day's drive Johnson had everything his own  way.  Remarkable Endurance  The remarkable endurance of Johnson's  wolves was demonstrated by his driving from  Boston Roadhouse to Nome, a distance of 107  miles, without feeding.  He had arranged to feed his team at Timber,  64 miles from here, but when he arrived there  he found that the feed had soured, and he decided to_ press on without waiting for a new  supply, which was on the way. -  When Johnson crossed the finish line Allan  was reported at Solomon, 32 miles out, and Ayer  had left Council, 50 miles behind Allan.

The  city of Toronto, therefore, is to be  congratulated on being the first place  on this side of the international  boundary to entertain the conference  which this year will become international in scope and character. The  financial difficulties have been over-  come by a generous grant from the  Dominion Government, which has appointed the Commission of. Conservation to act as hosts. The Ontario  Government and the city of Toronto  are also contributing. The question  of city planning is thus* recognized  to be of national, provincial and mun-  cipal concern, and Field Marshal H.  R. H. the Duke of Connaught, the  Governor-General, has graciously  consented to open the Conference and  to give an address.    .  The substantial assistance'given by  the Dominion Government is evidence that the town dweller, equally  with the agriculturist, is receiving attention, and'that not only the Federal capital, but all our Canadian  cities are receiving from the Federal  authorities such / advice* and assistance as the Congress will afford  them. Invitations Have been sent to  all the cities and towns in the Dominion, requesting them to send delegations to the Conference, and it "is  hoped that many will take advantage of the s'opportunity. Money  could be spent to no greater advantage than in giving some of our city  councillors the opportunity to come  into touch with experts in civic problems from'1 all over the continent.  The aldermen will carry home ideas  that, put into practice) will save  their townspeople millions of dol-  llars, besides acquiring a new sense  of the responsibilities of their office  and higher ideals of civic administration.  The scope of the Conference may  be gauged by a gjance at some of the  topics which will ' form the main  themes of discussion. Among these  may be cited: The relative,, importance of city planning as compared  with all other functions of city government, by Andrew Wright Crawford, editor of the city planning section of the Public Ledger; provision  for future rapid transit,, by J. V.  Davies, consulting engineer for the  Brooklyn Rapid Transit Company;  rapid transit and the auto bus, by  John A, McCollum, assistant engineer, Board of Estimate and Apportionment, New York city; protecting  residential districtst *��������� by Lawrence  Veiller, secretary and director of the  National Housing Association, New  York city; Toronto's water front  development, by R. S. Gourlay, of the  Toronto Harbor Board; a consideration of the principles and procedure  of a Canadian town planning act, a  draft of which is now being prepared  by a, special committee appointed by  the - Commission - of- -Conservation  and recreation facilities in the city  plan, by Henry V. Hubbard, professor of landscape, architecture in  Harvard University.  Additional interesting features will  be a tour of tf������e city and harbor of  Toronto, luncheon " topics, and an  open session for the discussion of  subjects to be submitted by members of the Conference.

Equal Suffrage in Illinois  The State of Illinois has just passed through  pits first experience with equal suffrage Over  1000 saloons have been closed, but whether this'  can be attributed to the woman vote remains still  to be proven. In Westville township sthe vote on  April 7th was for a "wet" town.' The /township.voted 2691 "wet" and 1287Jfdryr" 2022  men and 669 women voting'"wet," and 678 men  and 609 women voting "dry." In Westville village alone, however, the woman .Vote was .611  "wet" and 113 "dry."  In connection with' this campaign a very start-_  ling incident occurred.   The Rev. Louis B. Pat-"  Imont, of Milwaukee, Wis., a preacher-journalist,  who had come in, to fight for temperance, disappeared, and nothing has been heard of him, since.  The temperance workers accuse the? ."liquor" *  interests of murdering him; the "liquor'  intei  ests say he has hidden' himself in order to influence other communities and especially Dan-  'ville, 111., against whiskey.   Detectives have been  employed on both sides, but nothing, as yet, has  Lbeen heard of the missing clergyman.   Rev. Pat-  Imont feared foul play, and left a letter describing these,fears, and the following memorandum:  Louis R. Patmont, 369 Sixth avenue, Milwaukee, Wis.   Married and have two children, Lewis  Land Ruth.    Was   born July 6, 1884, in   Lodz,  [Russia-Poland.  Weight 180 pounds; height, 5 feet  110 inches.   I am writing this note for identification in case of any foul play on the part of those  len who are constantly watching and following  le.   The hotel owners can give detailed information concerning those men who have repeatedly  threatened and insulted me.  J am supporting myself by religious and moral  propaganda and journalism.0. Since December,  1913, I have been editor of the Polish semimonthly Sztandar Grhzes-Clanski. My father is  a preacher at Milw&ukee, Wis. Address, 588  Walker street. ' '  In case 1 am killed I pray some good American  Christian may remember that it has been my life's  motto to "save "America first," and that I have  not considered the cost, and left the welfare of  my family and the education of my children in  the hands of Ood and some .faithful follower of  Christ.  March 23, 1914.   -  An even more serious feature is imported into  this case by the testimony of Tom Shepperd, the  acting sheriff.   He says:  "When Mr. Patmont 'went to Westville his  enemies found him a serious foe to the liquor  interests. They shadowed him. That I know.  When he went to a house they* followed after his  departure and told the people that he was  a renegrade Roman Catholic priest, and that he  wrote for the Menace, an anti-Romanist paper  published at Aurora, Mo. This was not true, but  it aroused the religious feeling of the people of  Westville, mostly foreigners, to a high pitch.  On the top of this comes the case of Rev. Otis  L. Spurgeon, a Baptist minister of Des Moines,  la., who was lecturing against Romanism in Colorado. After'the meeting he was taken from his  hotel by a crowd of 200 men and women and  whipped almost to death. Mr. Spurgeon was  taken to the hospital, where he still lay at last re- -  port. Five men 'were arrested and charged with  assault.   More arrests are expected-    ,.  .USITANIA'S RECORD���������  26.70 KNOTS PER HOUR  . The giant Cunarder Lusitania has established  |a world's record,for twenty-four hours' steaming:  In the course of her voyage from New York  ito Liverpool last week she steamed 618 knots be-  }tween Thursday noon and Friday noon, at ah  I average speed of 26.70 knots.  All Atlantic speed records are held by the^  Lusitania and the    Mauritania.      This    latest  \achieveme*t of the Lusitania further strengthens  the already predominant position of these vessels  ion the Atlantic.' vv  Their- superiority in' speed is as unassailed  'now as it was six years ago, and the Lusitania,  whose turbine,engines were recently submitted to  a lengthy overhall, has shown that the best may  I not yet have been attained.  PERSONAL  Mr- James "Napier of 9 Falkland road, ^Ayr,  f Scotland, who has been visiting his two sons  I William and James," witt" return to the OKT Country on or about the second week in June. ��������� During his stay in Vancouver he has met quite a  ) large number of old friends as well as a large  i number of new ones.   Any one wishing to see  Mr. Napier before he leaves may call at his son's  home, 1584 12th Avenue east, Vancouver, B. C.  PANAMA TOU-S  The Daily Tribune (Chicago), and William  I Jennings Bryan arc today both supporting the  same policy. Can it be the same Bryan or has  the Tribune changed? In any case both "Com-'  moner" and Tribune are supporting, with all  their strength the repeal of the "Tolls Exemption Bill," favoring American coastwise shipping  [in the Panama Canal rates.  W. J. Bryan openly confesses to a change of  mind on the subject, and claims the right of an  honorable man to change when he finds that he  has been misled. President Wilson and Secretary Bryan both reiterate that the judgment of  every commercial nation in the world, without  any exception, is against America in her inter  pretation of the Hays-Pauncefote treaty as regards the canal tolls' exemption clause.  The Tribune bases the fight mainly on the  fact that the exemption of tolls on coastwise  shipping is really a subsidy paid to that interest  by the inland people amounting to $1.20 per ton.  Assuming the tonnage to be carried at the small  amount of 20,000,000 tons per year, the subsidy  will bej$24,000,000 annually paid by the balance  of the country to the "Coastwise shipping monopoly," which controls 94 per cent, of the shipping.  Assuming the actual value of the plant employed to be $100,000,000, the government will  pay 24 per cent, subsidy in addition, to the profits  guaranteed already to the monopoly by the coastwise shipping act.  It will be. remembered that it was the advocating of this shipping subsidy that started the  old Republican party on the way to ruin, and retired old Sinbad-the-Sailor-Collum. Here again  we find a smallbody of men, strong in wealth and  organization, actuated by the expectation of reaping "colossal.'fortunes, carrying on a vigorous-  campaign to coerce or otherwise influence congress to betray not only the national honor but  the national welfare.  When we find the Chicago Tribune and "WV J.  Bryan both advocating -the repeal of exemption  clause we can safely say that the great American nation has at length awakened to the fact  that "honesty is the best policy." *       '  To the high credit of American journalism an  overwhelming majority of thejeading newspapers of the United States, without regard to party  lines, are staunchly supporting President Wilson  on the Panama tolls issue.  Most of the Democratic press would naturally  be with a Democratic president, but among Mr-  Wilson's strongest supporters are Republican  and Progressive newspapers of. commanding inr  fhience.  POINTERS ON . -  ��������� . BRITISH. COLUMBIA  The shore line of British Columbia  extends . nearly 7000 miles, with a  protected -territory of nearly 30,000  square miles abounding with commercial fish. These include salmon, herring,- sturgeon,������ bass, oolachans,  smelts, flatfish, black cod,- perch,  traut,' skate, sardines, anchovies, shad,  oysters, crabs, shrimps, and prawns.  The production - of the British' Columbia fisheries for 1911 was $11,-  000,000. Total value of ' equipment  was $7,830,976;" men employed, 17,108.  The industry is capable of'enormous  expansion.  Hogs are probably grown \ in ajl  farming districts. The demand for  pork far exceeds the supply. A large  packing plant in Vancouver has to depend largely upon outside points for  hogs. There are several small curing  houses. In 1911 there was imported:  Bacon and ham, 3,261,328 pounds;  salt pork, 165,106 pounds; lard, 2,-  199,322 pounds. 'Value of above,  $754,132., These figures do not- include imports from other provinces,  and represent only about 26 per cent,  of total importation.  . The interior plateaus of British Columbia are peculiarly adapted to cattle raising. Practically all the beef  raised is grown under the range conditions. InVthe Fraser valley the  farmers are giving up beef cattle and  are going into dairying to supply the  cities. The local demand from June  to December is supplied within the  province. For the rest pi the year  the supply is obtained from Alberta.  Very little winter fattening is done in  the province. In 1911, B. C. imported  11,497 >eef cattle, valued at'$689,820.

Murphy had stabbed a man ln the back;  ' jMcNlsh carried the sear of a knife  wound under his shoulder blade. There  were the two and two.  "What were the facts?" I asked,  with kindled interest. "Whom did he  stab?   When?   Where?"  "The bloke's name," O'Hara answered, after a moment's thumbing of  Ibis note book, "was MacNlchol���������Doug-  ilass MacNlchol. It was in Buffalo, in  ,1900."  My putting together of names could  hardly be a coincidence. '<  "Pat Moran served five years ln Auburn," the detective added.  "You don't know what became of  McNish���������I mean MacNlchol?"  "    "No."  "Nor any facts about the cause of  ithe stabbing?"  , "That's easy got," O'Hara Informed  ���������me. "But It ain't in the record at  [headquarters. What Is there, though,  ;is that Moran had lived In Chinatown  ,1a Frisco, and was arrested there and  jtrled for smuggling opium, but was acquitted for lack of evidence." ,    ,  For a moment I sipped my coffee In  thoughtful silence.  , The skeleton guy knows Moran. all  right," O'Hara broke la. ,  Ton mean the half-breed?"  "Yes.   He give tbat away."  "What does he call himself?"  "He's known in Chinatown as John  Soy.  He says he's a cook."  Once again J was busy with two and  two.  Unless all signs failed this John  Soy and Peter Johnson and tbe Eurasian .cook of tbe Sable l<orcba were a  - 'single entity.  "O'Hara," I, said, finishing my coffee, and putting down the cup and saucer, "I have the key witness in this  case. You and I together are going  to take him with us and have him confront both Murphy and John Soy. X  promise you the result will be interesting."  The detective looked his perplexity.  "Some one wbo knows them?" J������e  asked.  "Unless | am very much mistaken,"  I answered, "it Is some one who knows  them both better than any other person in New VYork. - Unless Heaven is  |ust now engaged In constructing enigmas simply for the bewilderment of ut  mortals, tbe witness I have is the man  whom Murphy stabbed In the hack, la  Buffalo, eight years ago."  Bat before I could carry out my  plan .there were several minor matters which claimed my attention.  Ever since reading the note which  Miss Clement placed tn my hands I  had been uneasy concerning her safety. To Judge from OUara'a report  Chinatown bad been in a ferment  most of the night, and I feared lest  the blame for the disturbance be vis*  Ited upon the brave woman missionary and some measures of vengeance  meted out to her.  - For half an hour X tried unsuccessfully to reach her by telephone. The  Mission did not answer. With my  anxiety Intensified by this repeated  failure, I ordered my motor car  around at once, and taking O'Hara  with me, made the trip to Pell street  in record time, despite obstructive  trucks and other vehicles which were  encountered, the hour being still  early, in maddening frequency.  : Bager Inquiry of none-too-loquadous  neighbors eventually elicited the information that Miss Clement, alive  and uninjured, had started at daybreak, If not Indeed before, to hunt'  up a brother of the murdered ling  Fo. ln Long Island City.  Half an hour later, having stopped  at Bellevue hospital on the way up.  town to inquire as to the condition  of Eloi LacoBte, the injured chauffeur,  and leave Instructions that everything possible should be done for his  comfort, I alighted from the car at  the door of Dr. Massey'a office on'  West Fifty-sixth street  I trust I am not that type of man  which, when guilty of error, delights >  to shift the responsibility to other:  shoulders. I had small excuse $o\  make for myself ln confounding Mc-j  Nlsh with Cameron, yet I confess r  had much less for the family physl-i  elan, who had been so easily deceived.;  Dr. Massey greeted me almost Jo-  do you propose to take? Do you realize what 1b involved? Don't you.see  that^your conviction and mine is one  thing, but that to convince the public  la an entirely different matter? Can  we afford to give this man up for his  crimes until we have Cameron actually here to prove that it is not he  who was thus Involved Blxteen years  ago?  In the recent result of developments  I bad not thought of that. But I saw  now that it presented a problem no  less perplexing than* some of those  which had Just been solved.  CHAPTER XXV.  Enemies Face to Faee.  Js events shaped themselves tbe  problem presented by Dr. Massey  found a speedy solution. Had I been  compelled to grapple with it unaided  I am not yet sure what courre I should  have pursued. Of my own volition I  must have hesitated to take a step  which could not fall to throw suspicion���������at least among the only partially informed���������upon my absent and  defenseless friend. But all choice lathe matter was denied me.  I arranged with Dr. Massey that he  should go unaccompanied to his pa-j  tlent's room, and, without so much as;  a hint that he waa cognisant of what  had transpired on the previous night,,  make whatever examination he;  deemed necessary to a definite concluv  alon.  In the meantime, having learned  from Checkabeedy that Evelyn was in,  the breakfast room, I Joined her there.  Her curiosity had-ripened by a night's,  suppression; and having dismissed the  footman who was serving her, she at  once demanded the fulfillment of myj  promise to tell her everything.  'It's another case where you havei  the right to say, 1 told you so!' I be-i  gan, as I took a chair next to her.   '  tn her wide blue eyes I read that  Ihe divined my meaning.  1 "Yes," I went on, "the man upstairs  |s not your uncle.   We have been!  nursing a viper, it seems, who prom-  Address by Dr. McKim^-Why We Are Protestants]  having ita way, "why on earth he  ever had the initials D. M. N. tattooed  on his left arm?" -  The doctor's quick changes of es>.  presslon were becoming an Interesting study. The smile which had lin-'  gered after tbe laughter now  gave  "Then tell me;'" I said, irritation /*���������* to give us a deal ot trouble be-  way to a lowered brow and pursed  lips.  "A tattoo mark on his left arm?"  he repeated, slowly. "There's no such  thing there,"  "But there is." I insisted; "there is,  at least, on the left arm of the* man  you've been treating."  Dr. Massey was still thoughtful.  "There is some mistake," he decided.  "No, there is no mistake," 1 assured him. "Miss Grayson's eyes  were better than either yours or mine.  She saw at once that this outlaw was  not her uncle, and you and I fancied  we knew better. If you are still unconvinced, doctor, 111 run you up in  my car, which is at tbe door, and  you shall satisfy yourself. Meanwhile  111 give you some of tbe confirms*  tory evidence "  He went 'with ma; and to him and  O'Hara. at the same time, I related  the durofoundlng occurrences of the  previous night.  "And what did this McNish say?"  the doctor Inquired, when I bad finished. "Did be admit the masquerade?"  "He became delirious. There was  no getting a sensible word from him-  My own idea is that tbe delirium was  feigned."   -  "Possibly."    ���������     -  "Isn't it equally possible, doctor,"  I asked "that be has been feigalng  since the first?"  "No," was his  answer.    "I don't  think so.   He may have exaggerated  bis   symptoms,   when   conscious, to  gain time; but If he had been able to  think clearly he would have secured  tbat. letter before last night. You may  rest assured that that was the  first  opportunity  he  had,  after regaining  tbe power of thought continuity. And  still," he continued, "I am not entirely 'convinced tbat he Is not Robert Cameron.   If it Is merely a resemblance, as you claim, then It Is the  ) most remarkable case of likeness tbat  I have ever encountered.   Moreover,*  there is one thing we must not lose  sight of.   His abductors, as has been  demonstrated by everything they have  done,  are  an unusually clever and  cunning lot of men.    To counterfeit  age, so far as tbe tattoo mark is concerned, is not so difficult as you might  imagine; and I should have to see the  'scar before admitting that it Is not of  recent origin.   The letter might have  been a forgery, or a real letter, secured and placed In Cameron's pocket  for tbis very purpose.   And hypnotic  suggestion would easily explain his desire to secure and destroy It. The use  of a foreign tongue ln his dementia  even, could be accounted for ln the  same way."  It was natural that Dr. Massey  should exert his ingenuity to reconcile  these divergent points. To him it  seemed, as it had to me, that a mistake as to the Identity of the patient  was Incredible. But now I simply  shook my bead in negation.  "Wait until you see him again, doc-  tor,*i I requested. "Wait until you read  his face, not for what is on the surface but for what is behind It."  The motor, drawing a swift diagonal  to the curb, came creepingly to a halt  before the Cameron house. As I was  about to alight. Dr. Massey laid a detaining band on my arm.  "If   your    conclusion   is  'Clyde." be said, gravely, "wba^course *  fore we are through with him."  There was no need for her to ones-;  tion me. Rapidly, succinctly. I told i  her the story I had learned from Yupl  $lng; told her, too, of the scene In!  the bedchamber, after I had left herl  on the previous night; and showed''  her the letter from McNlah's poor old  Scotch mother.  "Philip," she Interrupted , me, bar  faee,and voice alike pleading. ."Let  us send him back to herl"  "Bend him hack!" I repeated In  amassment '-  "Yes. We can, cant wet We don't  hare to give htm up to there ftornd  iCbinamen, do we? He's well enough  Ito go, isn't be? Why cant- we call a  |cah, give him enough money for hia  ���������passage and send blm, at once?  (There's a steamer tailing this mora*  ilng, isn't there?"'   .  For Just a moment I was on the  point of yielding. Seldom has a villain had a more puissant advocate  than had McNish in tbis enthusiastic,  resolute girl, spurred to his salvation  hy tbe pathetic appeal of tbat maternal yearning which breathed from every line of the letter before her. The  unselfish purity of her cause Illumined  and transfigured her. Her beauty was  .radiant  ������������������Answer me!" she insisted, ^Impa.  Went at my silence, "lent it possible?  Tsnt it really tbe very best way out of  ;a difficulty? It will never do to admit  jtbat we have had that man here In  ���������mistake for Uncle Robert, you know."  . "But there is something you have  (forgotten, my dear child," I objected,  with all the mildness I could bestow  [upon the words. "In your wish to give  !joy to this poor old mother���������and In  that I am with you heart and soul���������  you have quite overlooked the fact  ���������that we are still with scarcely a scln-  'ttUa of Information concerning the  present whereabouts of your uncle."  "Oh, no, I haven't" war her prompt  jrejotader, "but I dont see what that  ihas to do with it except tbat It makes  ;lt alt the more necessary to pretend  that we still believe this McNish is  the. How will sending McNish abroad  hinder���������" And they she broke off,  Suddenly, as I bad rather expected she  iwould, knowing what a keen brain she  '.had and how once she got a clear perspective on the situation, she must see  'Again the very point she had' Buggest-  ied once herself, and which I bad still  In mind.  Tou mean," she began again, speaking very slowly now, as she mentally  focused the conditions, "that we must  hold McNish as a hostage, and only  iglve him up when they return Uncle  Robert to us?"  . "Exactly," I agreed. "Just as two  (armies do that are at war���������exchange  prisoners."  "Isnt there, any other way?" she  asked, frowning. "Oh, there must be.  Ii don't care a straw, you know, for  .that wicked man; but Philip, think  of his poor old mother!"  "I do think," I told her. ������Tve been  'thinking, ever since I read her lettter,  and if it were possible. Evelyn, I'd  jglve the reprobate his chance for her  'jsake, little as he deserves it. But I've  ���������been thinking of Cameron, too. He  may be somewhere on the high seas,  as Miss Clement's note implied, or he  may be a prisoner ln some underground dungeon of Chinatown. Wherever he is, we are safe in concluding  he is neither comfortable nor happy-  Why, then, should we consider, to  come right down to practicalities, this  old .Scotch mother of an infamous son,  when the safety-���������the life even���������of one  we both love so dearly may at this  correct,   moment be at stake?"  (To be continued.)  (Continued froni Page 3)  ������  is that in the seventeenth century the same controversy convulsed the Roman Church, maintained by the Jansenists on the one side and the  Jesuits on the other, with a biterness certainly  never surpassed by Protestants. It continued  from 1640 to 1713, a period of seventy-three years.  Why, we cannot, help asking, did not the learned  Vicar-General Preston read up a little about all  this history? It is true that when a decision is  reached, the opposition submits. But such submission is no proof of unity. The bishops who  denounced, with so much vehemence, the dogma  of papal infallibility at the Vatican Council in  1870, submitted, because the Church of Rome is  an absolute spiritual despotism. We Protest.yit&  prefer1 liberty of conscience and liberty of  thought, even at the cost of external uniformity  (Applause.) ���������  Rome's Boasted Unity a Sham  But observe, my friends, that after all, unity is  not secured in tbe Church of Rome. They tell us  private judgment is a false and dangerous guide.  They reproach us with our divisions. But it may  be safely affirmed that there is more unity and  agreement among the leading Protestant churches  on this platform this afternoon than there is in  the Roman Catholic Church throughout the jvorld.  (Applause.) Its boasted unity is a sham and a  delusion; it is nominal rather than real, external  rather than vital.  So, too, with the interpretation, of Scripture.  Her highest dignitaries contradict one another in  their interpretations of the Bible. Thus, two  popes of Rome declared it to be so indispensable  for infants to receive communion that those infants who die without receiving communion go  straight to hell.' And yet the.Council of Trent,  whose decrees Pope Pius IV. proclaimed and  bound upon the whole church; anathematized this  doctrine. Ah! they do not agree, then. What did  those Fathers of Trent mean, to anathematize a  doctrine of one of teh popes? Were ������hey modernists three centuries ahead of timet Take another  instance, Pope Pelagius declared the invocation  of the Trinity necessary to the validity of baptism (A.D. 555-560); but another Pope, Nicholas  I, assured the Bulgarians that baptism in the name  of Christ alone was sufficient. Celestine III. declared, the marriage tie dissolved if either party  became heretical. Innocent III. annulled this decision, and Adrian VI. called Celestine a heretic  for giving it. And upon so vital a doctrine as the  divinity of Christ, Liberius, ;one of the early  bishops of Rome, was himself heretical. Yes, one  of their infallible popes, upon whose interpretations of Scripture the whole world of scholars and  theologians is bidden to wait, actually subscribed  an Arian creed, though Arianism is by that very  church denounced as _ a most dangerous heresy.  Such facts as these are not exactly suggestive of  unity, consistency, or truth, are theyf  Applause.),  Testimony of the Fathers on the Sufficieny of Die  Boriptwreg  I have said tHat we are Protestants because'  we build xror faith solely upon the revelation of  God in Holy Scripture. t*et me say that in taking  this position we stand side by side with the primitive Fathers of the Church. If-there is anything  that can be established from the writings of the  Fathers, it is that they held the Bible to be the  full and perfect rule of faith, that it contains the  whole word of God. and that what is outside of  it need not be .regarded- For example, St. Basil  says, "It is a most manifest fall from the faith to  introduce anything that is not written in the  Scriptures/' .He also says that "to detract from  Scripture, or to add to the faith anything that is  not there, is most manifestly forbidden by the  apostles."' O paulist Fathers, take note of that!  You will get St. Paul after you!   (daughter.)  Another witness is St. Cyprian, who maintained that to find out what interpretations are  genuine we should not take the words of the  popes of Rome, but-search-the Scriptures as the  only trustworthy record of apostolic tradition.  (Good for St. Cyprian! say I.) And St. Jerome  says, "We accept those things that are written  (in the Bible), we reject those things that are not  written."  Bible Reading by tbe laity  But then, we have not got out of our difficulties yet,���������O, no! We are told that it is dangerous  for the lay people to read the Bible in the vernacular, because they cannot understand it. They  will inevitably err in seeking to- understand it.  The Council of Trent says, "It is manifest by experience that if the Holy Bible in the vernacular  be suffered to be read everywhere without distinction, more evil than good arises." More evil  to whom?   (Applause.)  The Council goes on to say that permisison  may be granted to read translations of the Scriptures made by Catholic prelates, to those whom  they understand are able to receive no harm  from such reading." (Of course if you can persuade the prelates that you will get no harm from  it, you may get a "dispensation"!) "But whosoever shall presume to read these Bibles or have  them in their possession without such faculty,  shall not be capable of receiving absolution of  their sins unless they have .first given up their  Bibles to the ordinary!" That does not agree  with Cardinal Gibbons's position, but it makes it  worse for Cardinal Gibbons. He is a big man,  but he is not so big as the Council of Trent.  Now, where do the Fathers of the primitive  church stands on this question as regards reading of the Bible by the lay. people? I answer, the  ancient Fathers did not fear that the people  would discover contradictions between the Bible  and their teaching- They never desired to teach  anything that was nol^ in the Bible. St. Chry-  sostom says, "All things are plain and simple in  Holy Scriptures; all things necessary are evident." "The apostles and prophets have made  all things proceeding from them plain and simple  to all, in order that each person, even by himself,  may be able to learn what is said from the mere  reading of it;" and Si. Augustine says, "God  hath made the Scripture to stoop to the capacity  of babes and sucklings;" and again St. Chrysos-  torn, "Great is the precipice and deep the gulf  that opens before ignorance of the Scriptures.  It is downright abandonment of salvation to be  ignorant.of divine laws. .It is this that has caused  heresies;^it is this that has led to profligate.living ; it is this that has turned things upside down;  for it is impossible for any one to come off without profit who constantly enjoys, such reading  with intelligence." '  Oh course we do not pretend that plain and ���������.  unlearned people can understand' everything in  the Bible.    We ministers do not pretend to do J  that ourselves, the most learned of us; but we do  claim that  the things which are necessary to1  salvation, the, things    necessary    to guide one  through this world unto a better world beyond, i  ���������these things are so plain that "he may run that  readeth','in the Holy Scriptures.   "The wayfar-'  ing men, though fools, shall not err therein.   (Applause.) .^ >'  Nevertheless, we are told that the Protestant'  principle of the interpretation, of the Bible leadsj  to endless variations and confusion in regard to j  its doctrines. The Church of Rome, on the contrary, they tell us, teaches one and the sameJ  doctrine in all parts of the world, and in all ages]  of the world.  The Variations of Romanism  Well, to my feeble understanding, it really apJ  pears that no other church in Christendom has!  varied so much in the doctrines it has taught]  throughout the ages as the Church- of Rome. She]  has added article after article to her fatith-   The  Creed- of Pius IV, A.D. 1564/ contains twelvel  new articles of faith bound upon the churchij  Among these were the doctrines,of tradition, the  seven sacraments, the mass," purgatory, invocaJ  tion and veneration of saints, image veneration,]  and indulgences.  Again, in 1854 she added a new article of faith,!  ���������the immaculate conception of the blessed Vir-j  gin; and in 1870 she imposed upon the church the]  awful and tremendous doctrine of the infallibility of the Pope.  Now let me give you a striking example of the^  variations of doctrine in the Roman Church.  iThat famous orator and controversalist, Bossuet^j  wrote a book to, prove that Protestantism is false I  because Protestants disagree among;themselves,���������  and Romanism is true because its doctrine isj  always the same and its children never disagree/]  Now Bossuet was the terror of Protestant, arid j  the most trusted champion of his church. He!  was called the-"Eagle of Meaux." No writer*  of his, age in the Roman Church was more illustrious than he. But, mark you, he fought not  only against the Protestants, but, against the,  theory of the infallibility of the Tope." What!  was the result? He is treated by the dominant J  Roman Catholic school today as no better than al  Protestant. He is classed with aliens and here-]  tics by no less a man than Cardinal Manning]  himself. Another of their popular writers goes]  so far as to class the great Bossuet with devil j  worshippers because of his opposition to the doctrine of the infallibility of the Pope.   (Applause.) ]  Ah! that was dangerous-   He did not know]  what would be the result.   Poor man!   What ai  fall!   It is almost equal to Lucifer's fall.   He is  no better than a Protestant; yes, fit only to company with devil worshippers.   Just think of it!  Can you say anything worse'of a man than that?,  Think of it!   A man may find himself among|  devil worshippers, worse than the swine of Gad-  ara, just because he opposes the infallibility ofj  , the Pope.   Poor Bossuet, with ail his eloquence'  and learning, did not escape.   This is, I think, a|  most,instructive example of the uncertainty and  the shifting character of   the doctrines of   the  Church of Rome. . '       _  My dear friends, the doctrine of the Church' of]  Rome, her creed, is different today from what itj  was before Pope Pius IX became Pope.   In the'  middle of the last century, forty-three years ago,  it was not- an article of faiththat ihe Pope isin-  fallible.   Today it is.   Sixty-three years ago it  was not an article of faith that the Virgin was  born without sin.   Today it is.  Now let me give an amusing example of the  uncertainty in which the Romanist fijSds himself /|  in regard to the doctrine that he is required to  believe. Keenan's Cathechism was published  with the approval of theScotch Roman Catholic bishops, and also recommended by the Irish  bishops. This catechism contains the following  question and answer:  "Qusetion.���������Must not a Catholic believe the  Pope in himself to be infallible ?  "Answer.���������This is a Protestant invention.   It  is no article of .the Catholic faith."  - This was before the year 1870. After the year  1870 the catechism was republished, but this  question and answer had disappeared. So you see  how they agree!   (Applause.)

Although refrigerators may be of  any size or shape, there are definite  rules which must be observed in proportioning the air ducts in order to  obtain a proper circulation of air.  There are also certain other requirements that must be observed if the  refrigerator is to reach the high  standard now being required by that  great safeguard to the public well  being, the Board of Health.  Economy requires that the walls,  ceiling and floor are well insulated  so as 'to retard as far as practical the  -heat units which are at all times seeking to equalize temperatures. Cork  in the several different forms, felt,  insulating papers, mineral wool, etc.,  are all god insulators. \  'Insulation in the outer wall (so-  called dead space) should be such as  to repel rodents or other vermin.  Each' air space in walls should be  sub-divided into small thin cells to  prevent movement as far as possible  of imprisoned air. All insulating ma:  terial,   whether   felt,   wool   or  cork,  < should be thoroughly protected from  dampness by the highest grade of  moisture proof paper obtainable. .  'No oiled paper or any emittting  any odour whatever should be used.  Great care should be. used in placing  nails and screws and sufficient deafening, felt to make each joint practically, air tight.  ���������   While   .thoroughly,   air --seasoned  lumber is preferable, it is next to impossible to procure it in this, dart'of  'the   country,   and   nothing  but   kiln  < dried lumber should enter into the  construction.   Insulation is an' art in  frigerator/is said to bej'sweatirigwhen  6ne\ can rub aV slight moisture: -from  ceiling or walls or" a grednish mould  appears in': any part of the ref rigera-  A- refrigerator that /Sweats should  never be used under any circumstances as any food stuffs placed  within wili rapidly deteriorate^ m  quality besides being likely to' absorb  odours from other food.  The higher, the temperature, the  faster will all unsealed food stuffs  throw off moisture impregnated with  finely decomposed matter. Cases resulting from this decomposition will  invariably be present, but in a identically constructed refrigerator, will almost instantly be condensed on the  ice, or in other words absorbed in the  water resulting from the melting ice.  This water as it passes through the  waste pipe, which must be trapped,  carries off all the impurities. A refrigerator that "sweats" ever so  slightly, is extremely unsanitary because the humidity, ever present in  the atmosphere, condenses on walls  or ceiling and the objectionable gases  are there absorbed, then evaporated,  only to be again absorbed by the 'ood  stuffs.  ' A refrigerator at the freezing point  must have a circulation of air at least  20 feet to the minute; at 45 degrees  Fahrenheit���������30 feet .to the minute.  With the above circulation of air. no  refrigerator can sweat and no mould  or other fungus can collect on walls  or ceiling, and the air within will always smell sweet and clean.  Most refrigerators that "sweat" arc  built' by amateurs or by what are  known as rough carpenters (hammer  and saw men). These men never  kavjng'had a technical training are  j^eUerally ready to attempt anything  in -the wood line, at the cost of tbe  employer. The refrigerator, not being tested scientifically, appears to  be all right, 'until after a few morths  or possibly a year or two, when the  walls have become saturated and fhtfh  commence ..to sweat. It is needless  to say such refrigerators are a ercat  ing Vor manufacturing or refrigerators  being, subjected to a strict examination as to his technical 'knowledge  and taking out a license for that particular work and issued a certificate  accordingly;  itself, and only expert, experieneced .menace to the health of individuals  The population of 'our province "is  around 400,000, but if our existing in'r:  dustries "were patronized as they  ought to be, our population would be  increased five fold at least, and financial stringency and trade depression would be unknown. The province at present can take care of four  times the present output of our factories. There is no necessity to import goods as our local quality and  price is equal if not better than outside goods. Immediately v the demand for home/made goods becomes  insistent, the firms at present .importing . will not hesitate'about erecting plants here to maintain their  market. The matter rests entirely  with the public. If they want industries they can compel them.  PROVINCIAL AUCTION  OF FORT GEORGE LOTS  Chicago, 111-���������^Governor V-bunneV  members; of.the .

In the creation and development of  industries from obscurity to the eminence of natural importance, there is  in British Columbia no asset among  her riches greater than her forest.  Estimated at over '182,000,000 acres,  the forest area contains approximately 130,000,000,000 feet of merchantable timber, of which-the red cedar  forms no inconsiderable proportion.  Operating in the province are .over  270 lumber mills with a daily capacity  of 5,500,000 feet, and 100 shingle mills  jointly turning out 30,000,000 shingles  per week.

The history of official auction sales  of lots in Vancouver, Point Grey and  Prince Rupert '��������� proves conclusively  the keenness the investing public has  shown in purchasing such lots. In  1909, some 3000 lots inv Prince Rupert  were sold at auction, and about a million and a half dollars were realized.  Notwithstanding the high prices paid,  handsome profits were made. These  sales are to be held in Vancouver,  Victoria and Prince George.

Canada's laws and institutions are  based upon those which have proved  beneficial to the B.itish Empire, and  they are enforced.  Canada's wages are higher than the  higher cost of living.  Canada is near enough to -allow  anyone to go tolthe Mother Gountry  for a brief holiday.  Canada already grows, sufficient  foodstuffs to feed the British Isles,  and she intends to eliminate the' foreign -supply in the British market/  Canada's resources Tiave only been  scratched, in a few places, and her  natural wealth is largely undiscovered  and unmeasured in value and extent.  Canada's railway mileage ��������� already  exceeds that of Great Britain. ^  > Canada gives the - poor man a  chance of being his own master,.denied him elsewhere.  Canada offers safe and profitable  returns on the investment of capital.  Canada is the land of sunshine.  Canada's flag is the Union Jack.  Canada's cereal crop of 1912, loaded  in 30-ton goods trucks, in one continuous train, travelling at 30'-miles  an hour, would oblige' a person to  stand on'the, station . platform six  days an dnights to see this train pass  by.  A Land for the Fit.  Canada is the land for the fit, and  needs no workhouse, nor does she  tolerate the wastrel.  Canada will always find work at  good wages for the capable worker.  The demand for workers always exceeds the supply. i ' *  Canada has invigorating winters,  full of healthy recreation. '  Canada "produces men" that have ~a  mighty respect for women.  Canada is a' land still in the making, profiting by the mistakes and  wisdom of older peoples.  Canada can supply all the bread  and cheese the Old Land wants any  year.  Canada has a, magnificent educational system under which public' control, from^ kindergarten to university.  Canada's churches will seat one-  half of her population at the morning  service and the other half at the evening, and most of the churches ^re  filled every Sunday. *  Canada has all the attributes of the  highest civilization.  Canada offers a good day's pay for  a good day's work.  Canada's bank savings equal $100  per head.  Canada produces your morning paper by growing pulp wood.
