first occasion on which such tender re

had an edition of about 287 legitimates
and a couple of score of extra copies
were thrown in for "deadheads" and ex
changes. The second or third day he was in the

on a Washington hand press. It was a
bitter cold day In winter, and all was
made ready just before dinner. Before
going to the noonday meal the country
editor told Alec, to put the roller, the
only one in the office, near the stove, so
that it would keep warm to distribute

IS IMMERSION ESSENTIAL TO
THE "MODERN BAPTIST FAITH?
aBoarDeatm tnaar; parucwar ; a . ajrar; wrnaa JJst 'cmmmm.ymmH&cSg$: mp-pWfmmwsjiKfm-mg
One of the very livest questions agita
ting a portion of the religious world
to-day is the question whether one can
be a good Baptist, holding denomina
tional fellowship with other Baptists, If
he no longer believes that baptism by
immersion is essential to communion in
a Baptist congregation.
'It is hardly a Question in some parts
of the country. In the South, for in
stance, though the leaders have heard
that the question is being seriously dis
cussed in Baptist circles, the average
church member hardly knows that such
a question has been raised. Few Bap
tist ministers in the South would have
the hardihood to admit publicly that
the question may be. and by some
Baptists is, thought of as an open one,
and the denominational press Is re
markable reticent on the subject It is
considered a closed question In that
section of the country, closed never to
be opened. Close communion is the
rule, and if it has any exceptions they
are not advertised through the press. A
recent event, however, carried this
question right to the heart of the
South and laid it down to the doors Q&
Southern Baptists as an open question,
and it remains to be seen what the out
come will be.
Last November the Baptist congress
held its annual meeting at Augusta, Ga.
This body was organized about thirty
years ago for the purpose of promoting
"a healthful sentiment among Baptists
through free and courteous discussion
of curreaft questions by suitable persons"
and at Mast once befoaft it met in the
South at Nashville twelve years ago
but a3 'a rule Its sessions are held In
other sections and its attendance does
not usually have a large proportion of
Southern representatives. This time,
according to some Baptist papers, the
congress made a sortie into the land of
orthodoxy, for it Is generally admitted
that, from a Baptist point of view, the
South is decidedly roore orthodox than
the North especially on the subjeet of
Immersion and its corollary, close com
Hampered by Sectarian Spirit.
There were other subjects discussed
at the Augusta meeting; important sub-
science; yet, at the same time, mot
of, them teach that, whatever may be
one's conscientious scruples on the sub
ject, no man has a right tp membership
In a Baptist church or to commune with
Baptists at the sacrament of the Lord's
Supper unless he has been Immersed.
How full liberty of conscience can exist
side by side with this strict require
ment concerning conformity to an out
ward rite is a question which some Bap
tists and many other people are puzzled
This is the question which was square
ly raised at the congress. President
Evans, of Crozer Seminary, as reported
by the Baptist Standard, asked very
bluntly "How Baptist principles could
exclude from membership in a Baptist
church a man whose faith and obedience
are admittedly as good as ours, but who
In his right of private interpretation of
the New Testament does not agree with
us as to the form of baptism required by
Christ!" There were others who made
It plain that they felt that Baptist prin
ciples and Baptist practice are Inconsis
tent. Dr. Rufus P. Johnstone, one or
the leading Baptists of the country, made
what is called an imnassioned plea for
a purely spiritual basis of church mem
bership. It was evident that among tne
representatives from the North and East
the question Is one of the burning kind.
These men are fully convinced that in
sistence upon a particular form of bap
tism is a hindrance to the Baptist de
nomination, and an obstacle to effect
union, and some of them have not hes
itated to admit to the communion indi
viduals who had not been Immersed.
The Sob therm View.
It was just as evident, however, that
the question has not yet become an is
sue among Baptists of the South. In
the congress only one man defended the
traditional view, and he was a Southern
man, but Southern Baptists as a whole,
appear to think that the. question needs
no discussion, or else their denomination
al papers, being so very reticent on the
subject, tney do not know that the ques
tion has been raised.
' Just what will happen It the subject
does become a live one in the South, re
mains to be seen. It is safe to say that
jects of interest not only to Baptists,- the Southern Baptists will hardly dls-

but to all Christians, but the one which
aroused the most spirited discussion
it was almost too one sided to be called
a debate was the theme. "The relation
of the Baptist denomination to the
universal church." It was recognized
by all that the church universal Is
hampered by the sectarian spirit and
less efficient than It might be If there
were fewer distinctive denominational
marks to keep Christans In entirely
separate groups, and it was stated by
some that Baptists are now Indifferent
to the demand for fereater efficiency
through closer co-operation, and urged
by others that a beginning must be
made by uniting the various bodies of
Baptists. Then the discussion - drew
close to the vital question whether bap
tism by " immersion should.be considered
essential to. church membersivhv
'The addresses on this-subject brought
out the fact" that Baptist principles and
Baptist practice are not altogether la
harmony with one aaotaer. xne Bap

to a violation of tradition as Baptists af
some -other sections do. The Southern
ers are not built that way. "The con'
gress dropped a bomb at Augusta," said
a Southerner, "but, fortunately, nobody
seems to know that it Is loaded. It
will go off some day; then look: out"
Southern, Baptists are .sincere lu their
convictions; so sincere, many of them,
that they feel that they are rendering
a service if they persuade a Christian
of some other denomination to be Im
mersed. ..It will startle them to discover
that theu-.own people are discussing the
ques'tloa whether; Immersion Is really es
sential; but they will have to ba startled,
for there is little doubt that the bomb
will 'explode some day. "?
