Mr. Pleasant' Sermon
The Rev. Ellis E. Pleasant of Ka
hului preached a splendid sermon at
the Makawao Union Church last Sun
day. His theme was non-resistance
in the sense that Jesus used it in the
sermon on the mount.
Mr. Plensant said in part that
Jesus brought to the world a new
conception of life and duty when he
said "Love your enemies." The old
idea at its best was to return evil for
evil, but Jesus urged that retaliation
for a wrong only added further wrong
and never accomplished any good.
Retaliation is the result of anger,
antagonism, anything but a friendly
On the other hand Jesus combatted
wrong nnd evil in the world all thru
his life. He never retaliated when
an injury was done him personally,
but when perpetrated upon others.
Consequently the Christian is per
mitted and the obligation laid upon
him to combat and overcome wrong
in the spirit of justice, of service, of
humanity. But he must not sink to
the level of retaliation which would
put himself on the low standard of
the one who committed the first
wrong. Today the United States is
combatting wrong in high places, but
is doing it in the name of humanity,
not asking any personal advantage
SUNDAY LABOR, AND
With the words: "The Sabbath was
made for man, and not man for the
Sabbath" as his text. Rev. J. Charles
Villiers referred, in his sermon, last
Sunday morning, to the recent order
by President Wilson that there shall
be no Sunday labor, throughout the
military and naval services of the
United States, except of the strictest
necessity. Reasons for this Presi
dential action were not given, or were
not reported. But similar action
taken by the British government, a
few months ago, with reference to
munitions .workers, and indeed, to all
labor under government control, was
taken for the reason that it was a ne
cessity. A six days working week, It
had been found, had a great advantage
over a seven diiys working week.
Better results were achieved by it,
industrially, as well as socially.
This is no new discovery, but an
economic fact which was established
by proof, years ago. The redemption
of Sunday from exacting toil is for
the common good, an economic ad
vantage, as well as a social boon.

Honolulu The Governor announces the completion of plans' to

purpose. He says the whole Territory should be interested in beauti-

I he block to be secured for the auditorium is bounded by Oueen, Punch
bowl, Ilalekauwila and Mililani streets. The military being unable to
secure title to this block until the Legislature could meet, he has secur
ed same privately and the title now rests in the hands of those willing
to hold it for government purposes.

ever, ia the proper use of Sunday.
This difficulty would be less than it
is if all of us were willing to put first
things first, remembering then are
things which, though lawful, that are
not expedient, and do not edify. We
may boast ourselves that wo are
"free Americans," and are living in
the dispensation of "Christian liber
ty." But our freedom and liberty are
no excuse for license. We are no ,
more free from obedience to the
principle of the fourth commandment,
than we are free from the principle
of any other of the ten command
ments. The true law of Sunday Is
not that of external authority, but one
that belongs to the eternal order, a
law that roots itself in human life,
the issue of which law is that when
it is kept It results In the moral and
social good of men, and, when it Is
not kept, In moral and social ill to
them. There Is more of truth than
fiction In the old-fashioned lines:
"A Sabbath well spent
Brings a week of content,
And strength for the toils of
But a Sabbath profaned,
What e'er may be gained,
Is a certain forerunner of sor
row." The fault of our day with reference
to Sunday is not that of the Scribes
of old, nor that of the Puritans of
more recent times. It lies in an op
posite extreme from both. We have
not only used, but we have abused
oud liberty, (1) by largely commer
cializing the day, and (2) by making
it much more a day of sports
and amusements than of true rest,
re-crcation, and worship. So great is
this the case that if the present
trend keeps up Sunday will soon be
emptied of all spiritual meaning and
religious content. Works of necessi
ty do not, as our Lord teaches, dis
harmonize with Sunday. But to say
that all toil and labor which now in
trude into Sunday are works of neces
sity is to speak with a great latitude
of imagination, as would be, readily,
seen, were all profit making, and
dividend earning eliminated from the
day. Again, there is, of course, a
place for re-creation, for physical and
mental refreshment on Sunday. But
sports and amusements, commercial
ly conducted, are not necessary there
to. To make men worship God does
not come within the province of the
law, but to preserve Sunday from
commercial selfishness does. To en
force public worship by civic penalties
is to rob public worship of its reli
gious values. But to invoke the law
against profit making and dividend
earning on Sunday is, on purely
humanitarian grounds, the duty of
the state. Sunday observance, en
tirely apart from all religious grounds
is in the interest of the moral, men
tal, and physical welfare of the com
munity, and there Is economic evi
dence, in great abundance, that it is
in the interest of the efficiency of
labor, and the prosperity of industry.
As a religious institution Sunday
is God's one great provision for man's
spiritual regeneration, the day set
apart by God for man to readjust
himself to the eternal order, and to
take fresh grip upon the things that
are true, and honest, and just, and
pure, and lovely, and of good report.
