THE article recently published in the Fortnightly Review' by
Archibald Hurd on the growing need of an English-speaking
agreement, is likely to make more certain the footing of those
who shall hereafter venture upon this inviting yet heretofore slippery
path toward universal peace. Mr. Hurd speaks of the proposed agree
ment as a concordat, and this taken in connection with the use of the
term "English-Speaking," serves to show how necessary it is that the
matter shall be rightly presented, and how difficult it is to find words
that will convey the right meaning.
The use of the term "Anglo-Saxon alliance" in connection with a
proposal of this kind would be putting the matter neither correctly nor
tactfully before the .English-speaking peoples of the world, for, as a
matter of fact, even the inhabitants of th" British Isles are only in part
of Anglo-Saxon descent. If we take an imperia view of the matter
and consider the numerous races that are being cemented by other than
racisl ties, the reason for discarding the term "Anglo-Saxon" will ap
pear all the stronger. It could not be correctly applied to the inhabit
ants of the United States, nor, for that matter, to the inhabitants of
Canada, of Australia or of South Africa, except with qualifications.
Neither could the idea that Mr. Hurd and many thousands of other
thoughtful people have in view be adequately expressed in the term
"Anglo-American alliance," for the agreement sought to be reached
must embrace, and must have the hearty and enthusiastic support of,
the entire English-speaking world.
For want of a better term, then, "English-speaking agreement"
will do. It has the advantage, at least, of being comprehensive. It
has the additional advantage of ignoring racial and even national dis
tinctions. It groups the English:speaking peoples of the earth into
one mighty family, and the strongest point of all is that the purpose of
their coming together will be one which right-thinking people speak
ing all other languages can hardly refuse to commend and applaud.
For the object of the English-speaking agreement will be the main
tenance of world-peace. The alliance would start out with irrisistible
moral power. Its tremendous physical power could hardly be doubted
or ignored. Leagued in behalf of international equity, fraternity, fair
play, solemnly pledged to stand by the right at all times and at all
hazards, extending open arms to all other peoples desirous of joining
as honorary members in the compact", the English-speaking agreement
- would aim at a revolution in thought that should soon lead to its own
dissolution and the creation in its stead of a perpetual peace compact
between all nations.
The United States and Great Britain, representing the two principal
branches of the English-speaking family, have it within their -power
today to take the first step toward the realization of universal peace.
They should strike hands in partnership, pledging their sacred honor
that the noblest cause that has ever appealed to mankind shall be
pressed forward until international strife shall become impossible. No
other grand division of the earth's inhabitants is in a position to take
on this work so well as the English-speaking people, and no other
section of the world's inhabitants has more at stake in seeing that it is
carried on with regard solely to human welfare. ,

(By Ernest Crosby, in Paradise of the Pacific.)
WHERE is my gift, said God, "that I gave to men
The sun-wed fruitful earth, with her freight of good
For all their wants? What mean these prayers for food?
Are there poor in a world which bursts with its golden stores?
Who are the few that dare to withhold from all
My gift to all of the fruitful, sun-wed earth?"
And the few replied: "O Lord, we give Thee thanks,
Thou gavest the earth to all, it is true, but lo! i
,Thy angels, Law and Order, who rule the world
When Thou art far away, have learned our worth,
' And rightly bestowed on us Thine inheritance."
"I know them not," said God; "they are fiends from hell
That juggle thus with the gift that I gave to man.
I am never far away from the world I gave.
And, now, once more, and forevermore, I give
This fruitful earth anew to the sons of men.
Woe to the fiends who shall dare usurp my place!
Woe to the few who say that my gift is theirs!
Woe to the man who grasps his neighbor's land!"

wanders about for some rock on
which the soul can rest. This in
vestigating, so called, seeking to
know the origin of good and evil
and ignoring the evidence of the
senses in the denial of pain. Scores
of these systems 'rise and fall in a
generation for no human philosophy
or speculation can long -satisfy the
heart. Sometimes people excuse
these things by saying they do good,
but nothing that is not based on
eternal truth can do permanent
good, and Macaulay well says that
all human speculation on these sub
jects has not done the world as
much good as the man who has
made a man a good pair of shoes,
or again as he says 'it is a mistake
to imagine that subtle speculation
on these matters implies any high
degree of intelligence, and that $
Blackfoot Indian unaided by revela
tion may know as much pi these
things as the most learned man.
All this religious unrest is an evi
dence of the religious nature of man
The cross over these buildings
proclaims that you do not trust in
any set of human opinions or ad
here to any man made confession
of faith. It proclaims that you
stand for the positive, definite faith
which we have stated, in the Cath
olic or universal creed winch we
have just recited. A Creed , every
sentence of which marks a battle
ground where the Greek mind, the
strongest which has ever existed on
this planet fought out heretical
ideas which appear from generation
to generation. One who is familiar
with the history of the earliest here
sies knows that modern theosophy,
new thought, and Christian Science
are only reappearances of specula
tions which the Greek mind met
and literaly smashed with relentless
logic fifteen or sixteen centuries ago
I want you to go with jne this

morning back of all unhappy divi
sions of Christian people, back of
the growth of the power of the
Bishop of Rome, who, as prelate of
the world's capital gradually ac
quired precedence which lie after
wards claimed as divine - right,
back to the story of the Gospels
Back to the time when the terrified
Disciples thought that all their
hopes had gone, when their Master
was crucified dead and buried, to
the" time when their despair gave
way to a burning faith and un
quenchanie courage as they pro
claimed, wherever they went, that
they were witnesses of the fact that
Jesus who was crucified had risen
and had been seen on many oc
casions by 'many people.
If you go to the Acts of the
Apostles, nothing is more plain
than that people were called into
the Church not by subscribing to
any set of human opinions or any
set ot moral rules, nor any sayings
They were simply called
the living God who
to a faith
in the risen Jesus who reveals God
man, to a faith in the Holy
Spirit working in man and in
society, to a faith in the Church
which is to do the work of Jesus
cnrist in the world until he comes
again. . i .
Very early these great central
truths ranged themselves into words
They were evidently cystalized into
some form when St. Paul wrote to
Timothy, Hold fast the form of
sound words which tliou hast
team 01. me." mm kept as a
secret form of pass word, admitting
one to Christian fellowship, yet
within- seventy years of the death
of St. John written by St. Irenaeus,
almost exactly in the words whidh
we have today in the Apostles'
If we go back then to the early
Church we find a Catholic or Uni
versal faith, and do not be frighten
ed at the word Catholic for long
before the Bishop of Rome acquired
dominion over other Bishops owing
to peculiar circumstances, the word
Catholic was in the Creed. It was
the Catholic Creed because it was
the Ci t ed of the Catholic Church,
the one Church which Our Lord
had founded and which the Apostles
had taken out into the world before
any part of the New Testament was
written and two centuries or more
before the books were gathered to
gether. It is not our peculiar pro
perty,- we received it and we shall
hand it on to others. It is the
Catholic Creed today, for if we go
behind all confessions of faith and
speculations we shall find it still the
universal belief of every true Chris
tian man. It is still the Creed of
the world. The Greek Christian
recites it, the Roman Christians
teach it to their children, the Luth
erans hve it in their catechism,
more and more Christian bodies
who once discarded it are coming to
repeat it in their services. As
Henry Ward Beech6r once said
"The Apostles Creed is the golden
cincture which once bound all
Christian people together and it is
the only one which can so bind
People have quarreled not about
the facts of the Creed, but about
opinions connected with the facts,
most of which were entirely imma
terial. Just think .of the one hun
dred and fifty Christian bodies in
the United States, some of those of
the same family name divided into
twelve or fifteen kinds. We ought,
my brethren, to a6k ourselves today
whether this is right, or whether the
condition which exists is according
to the mind of Christ, who prayed
that his followers might be one so
that the world might know the
truth of Hia message. A divided
Christendom accounts largely for
unbelief and indifference. Divisions
are not only wasteful but they arc
wicked, and this Church as long as
it stands will call men to unity on
the simple basis of the Apostles'
We find men today seeking unity
on different lines. Some seek it on ,
the basis of a creedless Church.
One might as well talk of an organ
ization without constitution, by-laws
or purpose. Unity at the price of
denial would soon mean an end of
faith and later an end of morals.
Some men seek unity on the basis
of the Bible aiid the Bible only.
This sounds plausible, but it is
a wrong use of the Bible and it only
means further division by the differ
ent interpretation of texts. Every
science has certain principles. The
tables and maps of the .navigator
are only rightly understood in the
light of fixed principles. So with
the Bible the Apostles' Creed states
the great principles of cur faith and
is the chart' to the Bible. The plan
of the Bible and the Bible only has
always brought division and sub
division, and we must always re
menilwr that Christians already lived
in the Church and had its "ministry
and sacraments long before there
was any New Testament.
This building is also the witness
of the need to man of worship.
St. Paul rebuked tho Athenians for
the false idea which they had that
their gods needed worship. It is
not God but man with whom the
need is. Faith cannot- live long
without worship. Worship brings
the soul out into the sunlight of
God, and then the spirit feela the
warmth and light and begins to un
fold and grow. God ordained an
orderly and beautiful, and liturgical
worsnip ior nis people, ine peopio
were not only to hear Moses speak,
but all their senses were to be ap
pealed to that the whole man as he -heard
music and saw the beauty of
color and material might be led to
worship the beauty of Holiness.
You remember how Our Lord en
tered into the worship of the Tem
ple as well as the Apbstles. If a
beautiful reverent, musical and
liturgical service was once the best
thing for man's spiritual needs it
must always be so. It is such a
service which nine tenths of the
Christian world uses today.
' One of the marked features of
our day on the part of almost every
religious body has been the putting
away ot the old formal preaching
and prayer in which the people had
little part for some adaptation of .
the principles of worship which
this mother Church of the Anglo
Saxon people has preserved for; the

two teams of ladies, and one gainfe by
two teams of young men. Many in the
audience had never seen basket btjlf be

was given. After the games quite a large
number enjoyed the dancing. J
