MORRISON ISSUES LETTER
Calls the Belgian King a Conscienceless
Fellow, Blatant and Bold?Describes
Conditions In African
The committee appointed by the Gen?
eral Assembly ot tho Southern Presby?
terian Cliurcli to call tho attention of
tho United States government to tho In?
humanities practiced or permitted In the
Congo by tho Belgian King, has been
called to meot on November 3d in Wash?
Two members of tho eomnltteo niet In
"Washington In July, but failed to nee th?.?
President, and tho Secretary of Htato,
?Inee both of them worn away from the
capital at tho time. The matter was lnl'1
before the State Department, but the
government hau not yet taken hold of
the matter and will probably not do ao
unless it Is pushed. Tho second meeting
now called Is for the purpose of doing
this punning and getting the United State*
to Intervene In behalf of the suffering
THE MISSIONS LETTER.
In connection with tho forthcoming
meeting which promises to be one of
Home Importance, the Rev. W. M. Morri?
son, thn Presbyterian missionary, whu
has recently returned from the Congo,
and whoso revelations startled tho coun?
try, has Issued a brief paper of the na?
ture of an address to the Presbyterians
of tho South. He says that it is written
with the view of asking all the friends pi
liberty and humanity, and especially tho'.c
Interested In tho Aflrlcan mleslons, If they
will not unite In prayer to God that In/
may make bare hin power In delivering
the down-trodden native people from un?
der the heel of tho tyrant, and also that
ho may take away all the barriers "the
wicked government" has placed In the
way of the progress of tho gospel.
In the course of his paper Mr. Morri?
son gives a description of the conditions
for which Leopold, King of Belgium, Is
In great measure responsible. "Bolng
by naturo a conscienceless, heartless and
cruel fellow," says the missionary, "It
Is now not surprising to learn that,
though he made many good promises at
the time the trust was committed to him,
lie is now openly and defiantly violating
these promises, and is outraging the
Christian conscience of the world by
bis Iniquitous government there. At tho
time of his appointment to be absolute
rnlor of these 80,00.000 of natives and
tho conservator of civilization and Chris?
tianity In that great region, thn Powers
thought to bind him by certain treaty
obligations, which he was bound to abide
by. Ono of these was that slavery was
to be put down and everything done to
Ameliorate the condition of the native
7ieople. I make bold to say that, owing
to the new system of forced military
nnd labor laws now In operation there,
by which tho people are compelled to
nerve In the army and to labor on pub?
lic works of all kinds, accompanied with
Innumerable Instances of cruelty and
the most heartless atrocities, the natives
nro reduced to a condition of serfdom
far worse than existed under tho Arab
regime. I could give. If necessary, many
instances of these cruelties, which have
come under h'iy personal observation.
Time and again I. acting under author?
ity of our mission there, have called the
attention of the King and his government
to this situation of afjalrs. Nothing has
ever been dono, and no one has ever
been punished that I know of, though the
King Is always pretending to wait to
punish his officers and the soldiers who
fommlt these atrocities. But It can eas?
ily be seen that the King himself and
the whole system of government are to
blame, and not the often Innocent white
officers and native soldiers, who can
only execute tho order? sent them by
the central ?rovernment at Bni?sels.
HINDEBS MISSION WORK.
"Anothor Important stipulation of the
treaty was that no hindrance whatsoever
was to be put in the way of missions
of every kind In carrying on their work.
3 am sorry to say that so blatant and
bold lias tho King become In his system
nf treaty breaking, that during the past
four or five years It has been utterly
Impossible for our missions to buy
single square Inch of land on which to
open up and carry on anv new work In
places other than those already occupied
by us. This action of the government
strikes at the very root of our mission
work and progress. Already wo have
been injured more than we can esti?
mato by this Interfnronco."
SHOULD ATTEND CHURCH
Central Dep'ores a Condition of Things
The Central Presbyterian, of this city,
prints a long leading editorial this week
deploring the grovlne- belief amone many
people that tho obligation to attend the
public worship of the churchqs has no
rightful authority over the individual
whatever. The pith of the argument Is
contained In tho following paragraph: ?
"But the obligation for attendance upon '
the sen-ices of the church of God does j
not grow out of expediency nnd personal
judgment and taste, nor from the au?
thority of the ohurc.h nor tho
wish of tho minister, but from the
authority of Ood, and His wise choice
of whut Is best for us ??? the world.
Tho Lord's Day Is a divino ordlnnnco,
nnd the proper ob?OfVflnco of 11 Is not ?
Immun expedient. Tim publlo npsembly
for Instruction- end worship Is nil ord?
milico of ??d ? wisdom and grace, which
wo ninv not neglect, without disobe?
dient?? ?iiid to our groat personal loss."

It affects the kidneys , ...

disease and as inhaling mixtures, salves, ointmeuts, etc., are never more
than palliative or helpful, even in the beginning of Catarrh, what cau
you expect from such treatment when it becomes chronic and the whole
system affected ? Only such a remedy as S. S. S. can reach this obsti?

It will be interesting to Rlchmonders
