"The tnulitional devil, tin; king
of evil spirits 'with horns mul hoofs
and spear-pointed tail, is n creation
of a ruder age; a myth of morhid
imagination, and has no part in the
advanced Christian thought of to
day" From sermon hy the Rev.
E. Harvey Had lock at the First
English Lutheran Church yester
Orthodox Lutherans were given
a shock Sunday morning when in
the course of a sernioh on the
"Temptations of Jesus" the theory
of a dvil was denied and the temp
tations of Christ relegated to the
ordinary tempta'.ior.s of commer
cialism. "Christ was not tempted hy an
evil personality commonly called
the devil, but by the spirit of
worldliness and materialism,'' Mid
Dr. Iladlock, and then followed
his remark on the traditional devil.
In following up the central
thought and elaborating upon the
denial of a devil the Rev. Dr. Had
loeh dealt Lutheran doctrines
blows such as the more conserva
tive of his congregation had never
listened to, and his discourse was
the subject of widespread co nment
as the worshipers left for their
Dr. Iladlock was a charter mem
ber of the Psychical Research Club
of Berkeley, which his since gone
into spiritualism. TliQn he began
the investigation of Christian
Science, New Thought and Home
of Truth and as a climax to his in
vestigation comes his declaration
that the devil of the staid Lutheran
belief is a myth.
Dr. Iladlock has sent in his re
signation as pastor of the church
and it is asserted will form a new
cult of this own. Mrs. Eddy he
docs not believe in, nor does lie
subscribe entirely to the doctrines
of the Home of Truth. He has a
following in the church, it is said,
however, that is willing to accept
him as a leader and follow the path

Hon. II. P. Baldwin ha written
lo the Evening Bulletin correcting
erroitioiis statements made in that
paper by Mr. Irwin, a staf corres
h indent of the Bulletin. After quot
ing what Mr. Irwin wrote he says.
"There is at least 1,000 acres of
public land, all good land, at rCon
nae; and about 2,000 acres adjoin
ing, makinsr in all about 3,000
acres, most of which is suitable for
rubber, pineapples and other farm
ing products, and is available for
homesteading purposes at any time.
"I am fairly well acquainted with
the public lands this side of Ulupa
lakua to llaha and beyond and
what these land? can produce, and
do not hesitate to say that the Gov
ernment owns thousands of acres
along this slops of Ilaleakala that
will make line pineapple lands also
large tracts of other lands that are
good lands for rubber, grapes,
bananas, corn, and other products.
Moreover, tllt-re are large tracts of
land owned by corporations and
others from Ulupalakua to liana
that will produce profitably all the
above products, and that will be
opened up for small farmers when
the right time conies. These tracts
of land are not suitable for raising
cane profitably, both on account of
soil and rainfall, but are suitable
for pineapples and other farming
products. Cane requires from To
to 80 inches rain per annum, fair
ly well distributed through the
year, and we are not sure of that
aVnount of rain in that region;
where as pineapples, and other
farming products mentioned, will
do very well if the rainfall is from
35 to 40 inches per annum. All
the land to the east of us, above
say 200 to 500 feet elevation, is
sure of that amount of rain. To
hoir.estead these lands does not in
terfere with the cane business, but
is a benefit, as homestead colon ifs
'I have always strongly favored
dividing up lands suitable for
firming purposes for "bona tide"
citizen settlers, and for those eligi
ble to become citizens, but in my
opinion it would be unwise to do
so to any extent before good roads,
or railroads, arc constructed to the
country it is proposed to open up,
and good harbors are constructed,
so that the farmers have every
facility for marketing their pro
ducts, and at reasonable cost.
"Again, it is unwise to cut up land
for small farmers to raise certain
products before it has been reason
ably demonstrated what can be
successfully and profitably raised.
If attention ia not paid to the above
points in cutting up lands for set
tlers, the farmers are quite likely
to find their farms unprofitable
throw them up, and the object of
the Government to establish citizen
settlers is thus defeated, and .the
lands pass into the hands of Cor
porations or to others who are not
citizens. This has been the case
in more than one instance where
the Government has prematurely
cut up lands for settlers. In such
instances it would have been better
if the lands had been leased for a
reasonable time, rather than have
them pass out of the Government's
"I have no doubt the Govern
ment will open. up the Government
lands between here and Haiku and

to the "Baldwin," who Mr. Irwin
said in his article objected to fur
nishing land to a Portuguese who
applied for land, on the ground
that the Portuguese would steal
away his Japs. I presume the
"Baldwin" referred to is the

Company, although I have not en

that the Maui Agricultural Com
