BISHOP M'KIM VISITS MAUI
On Sunday September 1st, the lit.
Rev. John McKim, D. D., Bishop of
Tokio, Japan, paid an episcopal visit
and preached to the congregation of
the Church of the Good Shepherd. He
took for the text of his sermon the
nineteenth verse of the twenty-sixth
chapter of Acts: "Wherefore, O King
Agrippa, I was riot disobedient to the
The message of the Bishop was
timely, interesting, and instructive.
He said that one of the best evidences
of the dynamic of the Christian reli
gion was to be found In the life and
missionary labors of St. Paul. The
great apostle had a gospel which he
did not leam of men, but which was
revealed to him by God through His
Holy Spirit, a gospel which met the
apostle's own deepest need, and
which he knew would meet the deep
est needs of men in every age, and
In his application of the text to
modern life, and especially to the life
of the American people, the Dishop
said there were three besetments, in
particular, against which we should
be continually on our guard. First,
in tho realm of practical affairs, for it
is our boast that we are a practical
people, we have need to be guarded
that we do not lose sight of those
great ideals of life which Christ holds
up before us as those only worthy of
attainment. We have need, further,
to guard against cynicism. While
just, constructive, criticism is good.
cynical criticism is an evil, an evil
which, perhaps, harms no one more
than it does those who indulge in it
until it becomes the very atmosphere
of their lives. Lastly, we have need
o guard against that evil which Is
the mother of so many other evils
the love of money. The best and
noblest things of life cannot be Inter
preted in terms of money.
On request Bishop McKim gave a
short gospel address to the congre
gation of the Japanese Christian
Church, on Sunday evening. This ad
dress was in the Japanese language,
language in which the bishop is a
fluent speaker. On Monday he visited
St. John's, Chinese, Episcopal Church,
Kula, where he preached on the wea
pons of the Christian warfare. On
Tuesday afternoon he addressed the
Woman's Guild of the Church of the
Good Shepherd, which met with Mrs.
J. J. Walsh, at her home in Kahulul.
In this address the Bishop gave a
short resume of what had been ac
complished in Japan by the American
Church during the half century in
which her missionaries have been la
boring there. It was an illuminating
address in which reference was made
to the church's success in establish
ing Christian congregations, and add
ing communicants; in founding and
developing schools and colleges in
which the youth of Japan are brought
under Christian influences; and in
ministering to the minds and bodies
of the people, without distinction of
creed or station in life, in hospitals,
and in other institutions which tho
church has established, largely
through Bishop McKim's personal ef
forts, though ho modestly refrained
from saying so. Nor did he mention
the fact that he is the presiding bis
hop of the Nippon Set Kokwai, or Na
tional, Holy Catholic, Church ot Jap
The history of Bishop McKlm'B
work in Japan is one of great aehive
ment. He began his missionary la
bors there early in 1880. In 1893 he
was elected and consecrated Bishop.
At that lime there were but four Jap
aneso clergy in his district. Today
there are thirty, there are also thirty
eat.-chists, and a large body of other
Japanese workers There are four
teen American clergy; a staff of Am
erican Physicians, and thirty-two Eng
lish npeaking teachers and workers.
There are twenty-eight cay schools
and five boarding schools; tho total
number of pupils in these schools be
ing in excess of two thousand. St.
Paul's College, one of the best institu
tions for higher education In ,;tan
has. in nil departments, eight hun
dred Mudents. : has just taken pos
res-ion of new Duildings around
which is a campus of fifteen acres.
The value of the property of St. Paul's
cut property is worth mors than
nnri.iM.Mi. The only school and hi.me
or f ebie-niinded children ;n Japan
is housed in and is under the supervi
sion aiif; care of Bishop McKim. Reg
ular work among Japanese lepers was
first begun in l!)15. There now stands
the hill of Kusatsu, about one bun
in -d an! twenty miles from Tokyo,
a sanitnruim for lepers. In ronj'.cc
Mon with this sanitarium there is a
kindergarten, a hotel for leper girls,
and a dispensary; also a congregation
of seventy lepers, of whom flftv one
are communicants of the church.
. But perhaps the outstanding fea
ture of this record ot kindergartens,
schools, college, hospitals, and charit
able institutions is St. Luke's Hospi
tal, Tokyo. Begun with a gift of
$10,000, it is tcday housed in a prop
irty valued at $600,000, and is said to
l e the best hospital in the far east,
almoit as famous, for what it has
done and is doing, In America, an it
is in Japan. Bishop McKim attributes
much of its success and fanu to Dr.
!t. B. Teusler, in whose charge it has
been for many years It will add to
:ts fame, in the days immediately be
fore us, as a Base-Hospital of the Am
erican Red Crosi to which service it
has h'en plfced.
In writing of his twenty five years
as a missionary bishop, in "The Spirit
of Missions," Bishop McKim uses a
few words with which we may con
clude this sketch. "If so much has
been given us from God in twenty
five years, what 'nay we not expect
from !Hm if we are faithful in years
to come? This work needs and de
serves aid from without; it would be
poor work and a wretched failure if
it did not. It should be a joy and a
glory to help It, for it is God's work
and He Is with it. His blessing alone
can give it prosperity and success."
Many of the larger hotels of the
country are using no cane sugar in
pastrices and desserts.
