Buy At Home
Prom time to time the papers here
have taken up the "Buy at Home"
slogan and pounded on It for a time
only to feel the force of local condi
tions and drop the campaign. Noth
ing that they have said however, has
heen lost and there Is no reason why,
at this particular crisis in our nation
al and Island affairs we should not
benefit by the seed that has been
sown and help ourselves by helping
the Hilo merchant and the Lord
knows the poor man needs help.
There Is a lesson for us In what Is
happening In Washington and Lon
don and I'aris in these days of
In a Washington our own chief city
the lesson is plain. President Wilson
has been given a stupendous job by
congress when it passed the Overman
If he succeeds humnn kind will be
shown, on a big scale, the beauty
and economy of things done simply.
The world Is all cluttered up with
vitality-consuming frills; ill-directed
energy; lost motion.
This war awoke the nation to the
fact that it was buying aboard what
it had, or could have had, within its
own borders that it was wasting
time, labor, intiative, money.
Ivocally we should make a similar
discovery. Thousands of dollars earn
ed here, and which should be put back
into the circulating capital of this
community, are given the far-away
roll which has no comeback. Wasted
motion. It overworks the dollar and
does nobody any particular benefit.
Circulate money, yes; but circulate It
where It will do the most good. Hilo
Most Holy Father I fulfill a painful
duty In Informing your Holiness of

November 11; at 6 o'clock a. m. sol
diers invaded about one-third of the
churches of my diocese. They stopped
the services, expelled the congrega
tion, and forced the priest at the al
tar to interrupt the Holy Sacrifice oi
the mass. Then they searched every
corner of the buildings; they lifted
the consecrated stone of the altars m
inspect the Interior, in uiany cases
they broke the altars; Mid a number
of sacred vessels were carried away.
In numerous thurchea they obliged
the priest to open the tabernacle and
show them the contents of the holy
ciborium. In a convent of this city
the officer In chaige took the ciborium
from the tabernacle and opened It
himself because the nuns had refused
to do it. Money and objects of art
were taken away from several rec
tories and convents. Even
convents of cloistered nuns were in
vaded by soldiers the poor religious
being at their mercy.
. In Belgium, of course. Over 180
"churches were invaded in this manner
on that one day, besides the convents.
Bishop Crooy of Tourney, who makes
this report to the Pope, calls it "one
of the saddest days of my episcopal
career," and adds: "Those profana
tions of the Blessed Sacrament have
caused a most painful impression."
Precisely what is the reason of the
German's war against God? His war
against man we understand, after a
fashion. Is it because the tribal deity,
Gott, is jealous of God? New York

ST. PAUL AND CONSCIENCE
Bv Rev. J. Charles Vlllii'rs
(Church of the Good Shcph''"5'
"And herein do I exorcise myself,

offence toward God. and tor( nlpn
So said the Apostle Paul ln ,nP, de
fonce which he made hrfore Felix,
(he procurator of Judea. before whom
he had been brought .under charges
of certain Jews that waa a Propa
gandist of sedition imd violence, an
enemy to the civil l o fRome, and
to the eccleslatical lw of the Jew.
Of course these dirges were false as
is clearly shown y the apostle in his

apostolic o"'ce. and missionary com
mission, "ut he had committed no
offence In violation of that Roman

he greyly prized, as he did also the
litres and protection which it
conferred upon him. While it Is true
that the doctrines which lie preached
as a missionary of the Cross ran couu.
ter to the prejudices of those Jews
v ho regarded themselves as the con
servators of the Jewish faith, yet hi
doctrines were consonant with what,
for centuries, had been the hope and
expectation of the Jewish nation.
These doctrines, only as he had come
to know them in his own moral strug
gles and deep religious experiences.
And they were the doctrines of etern
al truth in which lay the hope of
blessing for all mankind. In preach
ing these doctrines, St. Paul declared
he had neither set at naught, nor be
littled whatever was of moral value
in the teachings of the Fathers. Nei
ther had he abused his Roman citi
zenship, nor his early religious train
ing in the Jewish faith. His mode of
life and of teaching had been in all
good conscience, without wilful of
fence either to God or man.
The use of the word "conscience"
is characteristic of St. Paul. He uses
f often, and never in a slip-shod way.
It stands to him for the highest things
of life, and of inner moral discipline,
the one authority from which no ap
peal can be taken to any other tribun-
But St. Paul, in ns own me
clearly shows us that conscience, from
lack of knowledge; from lack of en
lightenment; and, above all, from
false conceptions ,and prejudices,
may lead us to wrong judgements.
nd to wrong actions. some men
have said that conscience is but an
other name for education. That is
not true, but certainly there is a place
for education in the training and dev
elopment of conscience. It was Pat
ick Henry, I think, who said that a
man may have a blind conscience
which sees nothing, a dead conscience
which feels nothing, and a dumb con
science which says nothing, but any
man who has such a conscience is in
as miserable a condition as a man can
be on this side of hell. No man can
have "a conscience void of offence
toward God, and toward men" unless
his conscience is brought under the
same enlightening influence as was
the conscience of St. Paul. The
weak, unenlightened, conscience is
easily subverted and defiled. It fails
to respond to the call of God to mor
ality and righteousness because it
scarcely believes there is a God, or a
morality and righteousness wortn
while. It lives and acts as though it
were under no sense of obligation,
and as If it could only interpret liber
ty in the terms of licence, In such
perversion of conscience lies not
moral victory, but moral defeat. To
have a good conscience a conscience
void of offence to God and man, we
must lift our eyes to Jesus Christ
