Our Hope Of
By Rev. J. Charles Villiers.
(Church of the Good Shepherd.)
"For we know that if the house of
our earthy tabernacle were dissolved,
we have a building of God, a house
not made with hands, eternal In the
Heavens." (11 Cor., 5, 1.)
The keyword of our text Is the
word "Know". We know that If the
earthy house, and so forth. But how
did St. Paul know this? A little girl,
in childlike question, once asked her
father, "Papa how do we know any
thing"? In that child's question lie
problems not easy of solution. Science
has found the key to many mysteries,
but it has not, as yet, found nor is it
likely to find, the key to the mystery
of the future life. In mathematics,
as you know, the first of the unknown
quantities is denoted by an X. Th
proper use of the X is necessary to
the solution of a mathematical pro
blem. The correct answer to the pro
blem will not be found without it.
But there are other provinces of
knowledge, besides mathematics, in
to which the X enters, and plays its
part. The trend of all knowledge is
from the known to the unknown. The
X may be said to represent faith in
the acquisition of knowledge, for
faith Is a prerequisite in acquiring
knowledge, even in acquiring scienti
fic knowledge. Professor Huxley, a
foremost scientist, in his day, said,
. many years ago; "No man can expect
to be a successful student of science,
who does not bring his postulate of
faith to its study." Faith entered in
to the knowledge of which St. Paul
speaks in the text, faith to which was
added, spiritual experience. It was
thlB which gave him a certainty of
belief which he calls knowledge in
the future life.
Faith, the starting point of all
knowledge, is the starting point of
religious knowledge, and of spiritual
experience. Spiritual experience
makes religious knowledge more full
of meaning, purpose, and power; a
glorious reality, to us. But the full
experience of immortality and eternal
life can not be ours here, and now,
nor until we have made "the great
adventure". By faith, and by spiritual
experience, wo pass into the elemen
tary stages of it here and now, so that
it becomes to our souls, not only a
, possibility, but a potential reality,
whereby we are enabled to say, with
certitude, "we know that if the earth
ly bouse of our tabernacle were dis
solved, we have a building of God, a
house not made with hands, eternal
In the heavens."
- No realm of knowledge, whether it
be scientific, philosophic or religious,
will open its doors to us, and bid us
enter, and take possession of it, with'
out faith on our part. What reason
have we, then, to have faith in the
resurrection, in other words, in the
Immortality of the soulT Does it re
ceive eupport from natural science?
Strictly speaking, no. Science oners
us no word of absolute reliability on,
either, the origin, or the issues of life,
though no longer does it "rush in,
where angels fear to tread." Its
silence on the subject is due to the
fact that, in the main, it deals only
with matter, and energy, and physical
laws. But, in the light of the new
knowledge of our time, its attitude
to the Immortality of the soul is not.
as it was years ago, negative. In the
words of one of the foremost students,
of science, "the mystery of life is as
impenetrable as ever."
But the recent discoveries among
the forces of nature do not, by any
means, render the doctrine of the im
mortality of the soul Incompatible
with the present position of natural
science. While science can give us
no word absolutely affirmative of it,
Is can, and does, furnish us with evi
dence that points to the fact that
death does not end all. "The death
of the body conveys no assurance of
the death of the soul," are the pub
lished words of a foremost physicist
of today. Years ago, John Stuart
Mills wrote: "There Is no evidence
In science against the immortality of
the soul, but that negative evidence
that consists in the absence of evi
dence in its favor." Were he alive
today, he would, I think, expurgate
his reference to negative evidence.
"The Immortality of the soul." wrote
Prof. Huxley, in the day of a great
sorrow, "what possible obpectlon, a
priori, can I have to it, I who am com
pelled to believe in the immortality
of what we call matter, and energy?"
If matter, and energy, are indestructi
ble, and Immortal, Is it unreasonable
to believe that human personality is,
The one, absolute, authority In the
realm of the spirit, taught that it is
not unreasonable to believe this. In
all his teaching on the subject, he
postulated the indestructibilty of the
soul, and the continuity of human
personality, relating it not only to the
here, and the now, but to the here
after, to eternity. He speaks as if
death were not non-existence, but a
"passing on" to that destiny which
character has produced in this pro
bationary life. Nothing is more sure
ly, strongly, taught by our Lord than
that death does not wipe out man's
Individuality, or personality.
"There la no death! what seems so,
This life of mortal breath
Is but the suburb of the life Elyslan,
Whose portal we call death."
Rev. Plasant's Sermon
(From a sermon preached In Kahu
lul Union Church on Patriotic Day,
April 7. The text was taken from
Isaiah, chapter 22.)
"Watchman, what of the night?
The morning cometh."
The Hebrew Prophets were fore
tellers because they were men of
moral insight and religeous faith. In
calamitous days in Israel they pro
phecied. They believed In a Moral
Deity; that the stars in their courses
fight for righteousness; that the hosts
of heaven support the good cause. It
was this that made them sure that
"the morning cometh."
And this shall be our warrant In at
tempting to forecast what we believed
lies just ahead. The terrible cosVr
this war warrants us also in beliving
that great gains for humanity will
come out of it. We can hardiy be-
lieved in the over-ruling Providence
of God at all and not look for corres
ponding advances in righteousness
and human freedom. Surely such
immeasurable sacrifice is not to be,
poured out In vain.
It is indeed a new world into which
we are being born through the awful
travail of this war and in this new
world what are to be the out-stand
Before speaking of the new things
that are going to come I want first
to mention Bome old things that are
going to pass away. One is the Ger
man philosophy of the state a phil
osophy that places the state above all
moral obligations, knowing no inter
national law and regarding all treaty
obligations as mere scraps of prper,
Before this war ends that idea will
be shot to pieces. It must be so, for
the world cannot be made safe for
democracy safe for small states as
well as the large ones, with such an
out-law nation acting the part of a
Whence came this German idea of
the state? It was made in Germany.
Three short profitable wars against
Austria, Denmark and France had
greatly Increased the power and
prestige of Prussia. She became
dominant in Germany. These wars
were short and profitable because in
each case she struck just at the time
when, the odds were In her favor.
The selfishly profitable wars corrupt
ed Germany's life. Her leaders im
mediately set about to develop an ex
cuse, an apology for such wars. They
emphasized the associated life, exalt
ing it above the personal life. The
state was made supreme. Itself the
source of all law, it was above all
moral restraints. Along with this
idea of the state they developed the
idea of the German as a super-man
and of German kultur so wonderful
so much better than anything any oth
er people had, that to make It domin
ant in the world was not only the
highest good of humanity but the
highest duty of the German. Any
kind of war then that furthers the in
terests of the German state and helps
to spread German kultur is right. In
other words there isn't any right ex
cept what is dictated by might.
What happens when a nation so
trained and schooled deems that the
time is ripe and the odds favorable
to strike for conquest has been writ
ten in blood for three and a half
years. And that record has been all
the more terrible because in the hands
of this out-law nation are all the tools
of destruction which modern science
has been able to create.
Science has often been, acclaimed
as the great benefactor of the race,
and -spoken of as though it could take
the place of the Bible and of Jesus
Christ in saving the world. Is Ger
man science today helping to save the
world? The fact is science is just lie
good as the men are who use it. It
blesses or curses human Ufa just as
man wills. I- is a tool In nil hands
either for good or for ill. In the
hands of a good man what blessin?
it can be, preserving life, relieving
pain, healing the broken bo1. But
,n the hands of a bad man or a bad
group o1 mtn drunk with po cer what
i terrib . curse It can be. Out of lh!s
war then must come the moral con
trol of science and of scientific forces
Germany has taken the submarine,
one of the products of scientific pro
gress and invention and is seeking to
terrorize the world by a lawless use
of it, making war upon defenseless
women and children. And "should
Germany be victorious chiefly as a
result of her lawless use of the sub
marine, should the world as it emer
ges from this war not be organized to
prohibit that kind of destruction and
terrorism then the American Demo
cracy is vanquished and its survival
endangered no matter what flag is
saluted In Constantinople or Bagdad."
That which brought this country
into the war, the lawless use of the
submarine, concertely embodies that
against which we fight. The destruc
ted must be placed under moral con
trol. How is this to be done? The world
must be organized into some kind of
a federation or league with power to
enforce its decrees. We have the be
ginning of such a league already in
the allied federation of nations.
Don't call It a league to enforce
peace. Call it a league to enforce
riehteousness. For every recalcit
rant nation will have just two alterna
tlves to accept the impartial verdict
of a jury of peers, or be licked to a
stand-still. Nations as well as indivi
duals must be subject to moral law,
and into the great family of nations,
large and small there must come the
of the family and the equalities
of the family life.
These then are the great issues of
this war. These are the things that
are to be won. (1) The German phil
osophy of the state forever repudiat
ed. You and I can't live in the same
world with it (2) The destructive
forces of modern science put under
moral control. No more terroism on
land or sea. (3) Nations just as indivi
duals subject to moral law. No more
out-raged Belgiums or bleeding Ser
bia's. (4) And guaranteeing all this
a federations of nations with power
to enforce its decrees. Then will the
world be made safe for democracy.
In very truth we stand at a world
crisis, at the end and at the beginning
of an, age; and on this anniversary of
our entrance into conflict we may be
glad that the force of America is ful
ly enlisted. That force will be the
more formidable because It la the
force of Moral Ideal. We want no na
tions property. We are fighting
neither for territory nor indemnity.
We are fighting for international
justice and feedom, for the rights of
the small nation, for the moral fellow
ship of all the nations. Along with
Cromwell and his Ironsides, Washing
ton and his Continentals, Lincoln and
the boys of '61, President Wilson and
the men going over there are to be
ranked with the world's great eman
And with all my soul I believe that
the defeat of Germany is coming. I
haven't any doubt of it. I believe it
because I believe that eventuality lies
directly along the path to human froe-
dom. There is no other route by
which we can reach that goal. I be
lieve it because I believe in a Moral
Deity who orders the affairs of this
world; that the very stars in their
courses fight for righteousness.
We stand today at what I believe
to be the darkest period of the war,
but the issues were never clearer.
In letters of fire it is written across
the heavens what this war is about.
Actions that always speak louder
than words are thundering its mean
ing In our ears. What the Totsdam
crowd mean by no annexations and
no indemnities can be read today In
Russia, In Roumanla, In Serbia and
in Belgium. "Not more certainly was
Rome engaged In a death-grapple
when Hannibal was at her gates than
is freedom today. And Just because
everything is at stake and we know
it the whole of our citizenship is
marshalling as never before.vfor the
task that is set before us.
We have had to get a new defini
tion for the word slacker. Today the
man with the hoc, provided he makes
good use of it Is just as much a part
of the army of freedom as the man
with the gun. The man who can
build ships and who builds them is
just as essential as the man who
directs the firing from the crow's
nest of a battleship. We may all be
soldiers of freedom today whether we
wear Uncle Sam's uniform or not
What can we do?
(1) In the first place we can give
and sacrifice more than we have done
and work harder. Every day though
careful economy in our homes
through foregoing the little extrava
gances of our daily habit, through
real self-denial we can help to en
large the stores of available supplies,
and turn our saving back to the Gov
ernment by buying Liberty Bonds
and War Saving Stamps. God pity
the man or the woman who in this
day when the hour of our country's
destiny has struck will insist on liv
ing as he always has lived, and for
give him too, for no other can.
(2) In the second place we can
support and sustain the nation with
our courage and our hope. The great
leaders in freedom's cause have been
men of prayer. At this source they
replenished their stock of courage
and hope In the darkest hours of con
flict. So should we pray not with
the thought that we will win God over
to our support, or induce Him to do
what He otherwise might not do: but
in the sense that we reverently try
to know His will and purpose and
conform our own to it; that we may
be sustained In courage by knowledge
of that purpose; and that our vision
may be kept unclouded by hatred or
prejudico so that when victory comes
we may gather up its fruits unselfish
ly and the great ends of God may be
won. We believe that God is bring
ing some things to pass in our day
for the blessing of the nations, the
freedom and tho moral up-lift of the
peoples. Let us pray that we may
effectively help Him do it. And let
us stand, every man a soldier in his
place, faithful to his task, helping
where he can, until this war is won in
tho name of righteousness; and that
flag we all love shall wave unchal
lenged on the winds of every clime,
mingling its stars with tho stars of
heaven, an emblem of freedom, a
prophecy of that coming day when
the spirit of tho Christ shall rule
among tho nations, "when the war
drums throb no longer and the battle
flags are furled in the Parliament of
man, the federation of the world."

Molokai Man Cleared
Of Wanton Goat Killing
Jame C. Crane of Molokai is ab
solved by Food Administrator Child
of wilful and wasteful slaughter of
goats on Kahoolawe.
Reading in the Star-Bulletin that
reports had reached Child of such
slaughter, and hearing that the food
administrator was after an explana
tion, Crane came to Honolulu Sunday.
This morning he called on Child, ex
plained the circumstances, and con
vinced Child there waB no waste of
fresh goats meat.
Crane chartered the yacht Hawaii,
made up a party of 32, of whom 25,
be says, were soldiers, and perpared
for a big "goat drive." The drive
was a failure, since the goats skipp
ed merrily past some of the patrols
who should have driven them into the
corral. Crane says that the party
killed only enough goats for its food
and not a carcass was left unused.
Crane has now chartered the yacht
La Paloma which left yesterday with
another party and he hopes to have
a more successful drive. No firearms
are carried by the second party, he
asserts. He will sell tho meat at La
haina at 10 cents a pound, wholesale,
and says it is splendid meat. Crane
has a permit until June to kill goats,
the permit being granted by the board
of agriculture and forestry. Star

with sacrifice at home.
