Is There Lack of Christian
Sp irit Between the Nations?
Writing under dJte of September S
from Lucerne, Switzerland, to the Con
gregationalism Dr. Frederick Lynch, of
New York, whose activity In the Mohonk
conference and International arbitration
as a world movement Is well known,
makes comment on Europe's attitude to
ward the Panama Canal programme of
the L'nlted States He says. In part:
"Tre paradox of the twentieth cen
tury Is that everywhere Christian rela
tionships prevail between Individuals and
pagan relationships between the nations
to which these individuals belong I am
writing on the terrace of one of the
most charming gardens of Lucerne.
Close beside me Is a group of English
men and Germans Their talk Is full of
the utmost good will The relations be
tween these people Is Christian through
and through. The German would never
think of stealing the Englishman's purse,
and the Englishman would never suspect
the German of murderous designs upon
him. They do not quarrel. If they did.
they would not fly at each other's
throat. They would submit the dispute
to the nearest friend or, if It were a
serious quarrel, to an Impartlil Jury. As
a matter of fact, nationality Is not up
permost In their talk. These particular
Germans und Englishmen happen to be
talking In trench Their whole rela
tionship has been completely Christian
ized. Governments Still Suspicions.
"But the moment the German govern
ment and the English government ex
change words, the whole atmosphere
changes from Christian to pagan. It Is
as if Christianity had never existed, or
else had no part In the relationships of
nations. The talk Is all of preparation
for murderous assault of one nation
upon the other. Each declares the other
harbors designs of Invasion, and each
seems to believe that the other would
seize the land at once did it dare. In
stead of good will there is recrimination.
No bandit in pre-Christian Europe ever
armed himself against a fellowroan as
each one of these nations is arming Itself
against the other. Should the slightest
dispute arise, these nations are ready to
fly at each other's throats and It Is only
because the few who believe Christian
ethics should prevail between nations are
influential enough to be Heard in these
days that these two great naUons were
kept from flying at each other's throats
last year. It seems too horrible to be
believed, but It Is true: and so pagan
still are all the codes of national ethics
In spite of Hague conferences and peace
congresses, that It would take little to
plunge these two nations Into war.

Llosds' Milan correspondent definitely
confirms that peace negotiations be

The Sunday Observer editorially points
out that the Intense rivalry and Jealousy
between Austria and Russia Is largely
the cause of the present condition of
Europe and that but for secular oppo
sition between these two countries the
few millions of Turks would have been
swept out of tbe Balkans long ago by
one or the other. Unless this antago

may Involve Europe in a war which will
reach to other countries. The Observer
"The great war which has been the
nightmare of civilized thought for forty

of the benumbing Influence of the general
reluctance to believe that it can come.
