The*street? are thronged with fallen
women and dissolute men. The beergardens
are crowded with people, the
degraded crowd the streets of the lower
city as the wealthy crowd the streets of

absolutely powerless in her efforts to
restrain or purify. Good men and true
are studying the problem. My own
opinion is the godless public-school has
had more to do with this state of affairs
than any single factor beside; and some
day these very people, who have deified
education, will find that when they
turned over the shool to the godless
State they gave up their only hope for
saving the nation. If one should say

was adopted :
JlcBolvcd, That the practice of observing

Prison Sunday, by the churches, which
has been adopted in some States, is
approved and recommended for adoption
in every State in the Union, and
that the third Sunday of October is

The observance of prison Sunday
has also been approved and reconiemnded
by the National Conference of

growth and its prevention, aud of
criminals and their reformation, lias
perhaps been too much overlooked in
the ministrations of the pulpit.

Sabbath last while other ministers
in the city were preaching to congregations
at large, I wended my way to
the County jail where I was cordially
received by Mr. Coleman, the keeper.
He politely led the way through one
iron door to another, through the bars
of which I talked a while to eight colored
male prisoners and gave them
several religious papers.
Next to the door of a white (?) woman
who in tears and thankfulness
heard what I said and accepted a few
religious papers which I handed her
through the bars.
Last I was admitted into the room
of a young white man whom I knew
and who seemed glad to see me. He
also was pleased to get a few papers.
He spoke of the kind treatment of
Mr. Coleman, the turnkey.

Within a year or two, however, the
agitation of the Fisheries question has
aroused a decided feeling of animosity
on our Northern border, while, in Congress,
Senator Dolph's elaborate
scheme for coast defences, and the
several projects looking toward an augmentation
of our navy, here met
with considerable favor. And so it
came to pass that when the Republican
nominating committee this summer
addressed itself to the task of framing
an acceptable platform upon which its
constituency might stand, there was
found abundant space for our soldiers,
for a greater navy, for augmented
coast defences, but, alas ! (and in consistency's
name, how can it be otherwise?)
the beneficent principle of arbitration
of differences had altogether
sank out of sight!
Nevertheless, it is cheering to perceive
that the party of Prohibition announces
itself as unmistakably committed
to the arbitration of differences,
international or otherwise. But I did
not set out to writea campaign letter, I
take leave of my subject in quoting
with approval this sentiment from
The White Ribbon?
"Closer bonds of friendship between
the women of different nations, may
help to strengthen the idea of international
arbitration in the settlement
of all differences; that thus the whole
military system, now draining the
very life-blood and wealth of the people
in the old world, may be completely
overturned, and war, with itscrimes
and miseries, ended forever."
FROM UK V. ROWLAND H. HOWARD,
SECRETARY OK THE AMERICAN
The advent of the precious little paper,
the Neighbor, reminds me of my
purpose to write a word of fellowship
before the meeting of the South Carolina
Peace society. If we get lonely
amid the deserts of indifference around
us in Boston, and drop occasionally
into conversation oil the mere talkedof
reforms, how brave and true must
one be to stand his ground, hear his
testimony and re-iterate the truth in
Columbia. Here are the old roots of
former peace teaching. Worcester,
Ladd, Burnt t, Beck with and Miles
left their mark, though it has been obscured
by the excitement of civil war,
and gnawed by the moth of time.
But South Carolina has a peace history,
too. Judge Grinike's writings
were not unknown to my childhood,
and, if f remember rightly, your State
had a peace society almost as early as
Maine, Massachusetts, New York and
Ohio. Why not stretch hands across
"the bloody chasm" in the interest of
nothing so much as universal peace.
The "chasm" is fast Jitlinf/ up, so far
as North and South are concerned.
The cry that came to us from New Orleans,
Memphis, Charleston, and now
Jacksonville, is that of brethren in dis
that war is often the perfection or patriotism,
and full of "great glory," another
believes that war is always low
and abominable, and peace the sublimist
of national glory. One says
fight is right, when you fight for the
right; another says, fight is wrong
whether you fight for the right or fight
for the wrong, as all fighting is eyil.
One in blind sincerity prays to-a lifeless
idol of wood or metal, another
prays to the very living Almighty God,
the creator and upholder of all things.
Truly, education makes the world
what it is, for good or evil, for wisdom
or folly. Oh, how infinitely important
for all rational beings to meekly
and preservingly look to the Spirit of
God to guide them into all needful
truth?all truth necessary to the best,
present, and eternal well-being of man.
The Spirit of God is the best of all educators,
and the only one that is not
liable to lead astray.
How truly does the above, from
John Hemmenway, illustrate the
universal truth that according to
accepted teaching so is faith, and it
may be added, that according to faith
so is conscience, and that according to
conscience so is conduct, and that
according co conduct so is character,
and that according to character so is
"Truly, education makes the world
what it is, for good or evil, for wisdom
or folly." .

brethren who could not attend the
meetiug were read :
KKOM Mi. J. M. BURGESS, CJKEELYVIJjLK,
I regret that I shall not be able to
attend the meeting of the South Carolin
Peace Society. Iam still fully in
favor of peace among men, and of the
settlement of national diiliculties by
arbitration. Trusting that all the
members may be inspired with fresh
zeal in this good cause, I remain very
truly your Friend.
FROM JOSIAIt W. LEEDS, I'HILADKLPJIIA.
A little more than a century and a
half has elapsed since the eminent
Methodist preacher John Wesley, paid
his visit to Georgia and the CaroJinus.
It was after his return thence that he
wrote his 'Appeal to Men of Reason
and Religion,' in which he very earnestly
contended against engagement
in war as beiug insensate, murderous
and unchristian, as characterized by
no argument whatever in the decision
of differences, as being "an amazing
way of deciding controversies!"
Sometimes it would seem, when the
subject of the settlement of international
differences by amicable methods
is much mooted?as has certainly
been the case ill this country for several
years past?that the minds of the
generality of men were pretty well
made up upon the matter, and that
they were a*bout ready to concede all
that the friends of peace contended for
in that direction.
Thus, four years ago when the presidential
platforms were in course of
construction, the then dominant political
party inserted what seemed to be
a perfectly staunch plank upon international
arbitration, one which might
be relied upon for good, permanent service.
It is true that trie Democratic
party made no attempt to put forth a
similar plank, yet the well-respected
candidate for the vice-presidency expressed
himself very pointedly in favor
of the peaceable reference of international
disputes! ?So also did St.
John, the candidate of Prohibition,
while the Equal Eights, and, I think,
the Labor party, formally aflirmed
their belief in the principle by placing
tress. To send aid is a blessed privilege.
What better platform than that of
the abandonment of war as a remedy
for human disputes could lie made, on
which all of us could stand?
It hns been said to me by a gentleman
from the South, President of a
college : "If we could only have common
foe like England and a common
light, we would soon forget our differences!"
Alas! alas! must we wait
for more wickedness before we can do
riirht'? Must, whnla raimmnnitieH h?
come drunken before we will do anything
for temperonce? Must we shed
the blood of Christian brethren and
our kindred beyond the sea, before we
cau love one another! God forbid.
Warring, killing, destroying with every
accompaniment of cruelty and
brutality, has been tried since the
world began. If experience has
proved anything, it has proved the
folly, futility and wickedness of war.
Love has never had a fair trial. She
has been met at every step by unfaith
?"Impossible!" "Impossible!" has
been the universal cry. The asserted
impossibility of love's conquering hate
is in the face of the facts. On small
areas?for a little time, in special cases
?(all it could get) love has triumphed.
In the family, the church, the community
and the nation, love would
rule if hate would simply make a
vacuum in men's hearts. But you
need no preaching. The elect few
who will stand by the South Carolina
Peace Society at its anniversary are
confirmed in Christ's doctrine of forbearance,
Pray for us, brethren, as we do for
you. Come and see us, and let us
eome and see you to talk as well as
write these things.
The God of Peace be with your spirits.
In Christian Love,
KltOM REV. L. B. BOUCHELLE, M. D.,
President and Members of South Car'
olina Peace Society:
Dear Brethren?Excuse me for
intruding a communication upon your
attention. I write, because it is not
convenient to come. I have been a
poor member of the Society since its
organization. I love the cause because
it is the cause of Christ, and because it
is engaged in the next best work
known to men?teaching the people
to cease mortal combat, to love one another,
to curb and restrain bad passions.
Indeed, the peace cause is
even more humane and pacific than
the pulpit is accustomed to be?"moves
the pity." It should be a cause of
great gratification and encouragement
to you to go on in your good work, to
remember that since your organization
there has been a wonderful increase
in the pacific utterances of most
of the religious press of the world;' a
decided toning down of the belligerent
declarations of clergymen of all
denominations and more efforts made
at arbitration, in national governments,
than, in any similar period, in
the history of the world; and, as for
that, in any thousand years of its history,
combined. If, in anything, the
friends of peace are lacking, it is in
the dash, push and whirl of the age.
Excuse the suggestion, for it is well
meant; but, could not our cause be
speeded more rapidly, by sending out
one, or a score of your society to establish
sub-societies, or, rather auxiliaries
throughout the land ? Levy a per
capita tax to pay the President or other
memper of the society, and let them
go broadcast over the land, and disseminate
peace principles in all minds
?especially tne young v it win uo
good in more ways than one. Enlist
the young, let them sign peace pledges.
It will diminish the battles of the
school ground, and grow up with them,
and, in the near future when the boys
that now are, become the legislators,
governors, congressmen ana presidents,
it will produce fruit to the glory
of God, and the well-being of the nations.
"I speak as to wise men; judge
ye what I say." So wrote Paul. Allow
me to bid you God-speed in the
great, good cause.
[Though Dr. Bouchelle's communication
was not received until after adjournment,
it is assigned to a welcome
snnpA with the others. I
The officers of last year wore continued
for the ensuing twelvemonth.
The meeting adjourned with the
doxology and benediction.
