DOES THE CHURCH MAKE GOOD?
By Her. Dr. Cory
There may be a dilTeronce of opinion as to
the prime object of the church. Certain re
. suits that cannot be tabulated may well be con
sidered its most important work. To touch the
inner life; to quietly sow the seeds of prin
ciple and righteousness; to diffuse an ittmos
t phere of brotherhood, of lofty aspiration, and
eternal hope; and to make present in human life
the consciousness of God. The institution thai
does these tilings deserves the highest esteem
and should enlist the most earnest effort of
But, also, there is a demand for a show of
concrete results. The demand is just. There
ought to be concrete results to prove the vital
ity of this inner, quiet hidden work.
The fact is there are concrete results, plenty
of them, and the world ought to know about
The facts show that the church is the great
reservoir of power for all social work.
Out of one thousand and sixteen workers in
settlements, charities, and so on in America,
seven hundred and fiftv three, or seventv-four
per cent, were found to be church people, in a
In the charity organizations of the country,
ninety-two per cent were found to bo church
Miiembers and in the social settlements eighty
eight per cent.
In the board of directors of many an institu
tion doing far-reaching social work for chil
dren, for outcasts and for our cities, every director-
pr6ves to be a member of some church.
As a result of a plan inaugurated by the
charity organization society of Buffalo, one
hundred and thirty-two of the churches of that
city are engaged in charity Avork.
The charity directory of New York city gives
the following list of social activities among the
Protestant churches of that city.
''Eleven social settlements directly connected
with some church. , '
Thirty churches engaged iii fresh air work.
Fifty church kindergartens.
Forty sewing classes.
Twenty-nine employment societies.
One wood yard.
1 Twenty gymnasiums.
Thirly industrial, trade and manual training
Four night schools.
Fleven kitchen gardens.
Eighteen penny provident funds.
' , Seven day nurseries.
Two lodging houses.
v, Besides various dispensaries, clinics, flower
' and fruit missions, coal clubs, libraries, read
ing rooms, baths, summer homes, laundry
-schools, burial societies, athletic clubs, medical
" and legal-aid societies, soup and coffee houses.
The "Department of Church and Labor" in
, connection with one Protestant denomination,
last year, directed campaigns in six cities, en
S tared four hundred shops, enlisted five-hundred
x; preachers, held one thousand meetings, distrib
y, uted fifty thousand special programs aud spoke
to two hundred thousand working men. Mass
"'meetings for workingmen were held in church
es, halls and theaters, with audiences of from
'ono thousand to ten thousand, and conferences
rwcro arranged for employers and employees
vfor the discussion of industrial problems.
These are just, sample facts. They could be
lulliplied ad infinitum. The church does this
,'ork quietly and as a matter of course.

facts do not get into the daily papers. Only
those who read the.ehurch papers get glimpses
of what is being done.
The church trains the good Samaritan of to
day. The church breathes life into the mass of
social and eleemosynary work that is going on.
The church is Christianizing' the world and
Christianity lies at the base of our civilization.
AH of these things would be done if the
church did nothing about them directly, because
of that which lies at the heart of the church
the spirit of Jesus Christ. The closer the
church keeps to the simple message of the gos
pel as its prime object, the deeper, the wider
and the more far-reaching will be its influence
and its uplifting power among men.
YOUNG MR. ROCKEFELLER
Cut to the quick, evidently, and thoroughly
outraged at continued newspaper nagging of
Mr. John 1). Rockefeller, Jr., thai young man's
former pastor, Dr. Dowling, of Brooklyn, has
entered a spirited defense of his erstwhile as
sociate and declares that the young man in the
case is entirely worthy of any citizen's unqual
ified respect, good will and friendship.
And when one comes to think of it, it is a sin
gular phase of American journalism that this
man should have been so constantly and con
tinuously the target for unkind common I, sneer
ing allusion and sarcastic reference. His Sun
day school endeavors, for one thing, have been
ridiculed unmercifully; he has been scoffed at
as a smug hypocrite, and laughed at as a
"fake" enthusiast. And yet, he seems to have
obtained and held fast the high regard of one
of Brooklyn's most scholarly and consecrated
clergymen; a gentleman no longer jointly inter
ested with him in church work, to be sure, but
one who must have had fair and ample oppor
tunity to study young Mr. Rockefeller exhaus
Mr. Rockefeller appears to seek a rather
quiet and unostentatious sort of life. He fig
ures in no midnight automobile smash-ups; he
does not frequent the Great "White Way, in
New York, flis name has never been connected
with an Evelyn Thaw; he does not hang around
the stage doors. Ho owns, nor patronizes, no
race tracks; he figures in no questionable court
proceedings. He does not give vulgar and dis
gusting dinners to disreputable friends; and
he is not known tobe the "angel" behind any
aspiring "star" in musical comedy circles. Jn
short, Mr. Rockefeller appears to be an emi
nently clean and upright young man neither
startlingly brilliant nor asininely dull; neither
immaculately white nor noticeably spotted,
"Why, indeed, should such a young man be the
persistent butt of a lot of cheap gibes and
doubtful humor? The fact that he possesses
millions, and will possess many millions more,
argues nothing to his discredit, per so, surely.
His methods of living are in somewhat marked
contrast with those of some other rich mens'
sous, lie might have gone the way of Harry
Thaw and degenerates of that ilk, and never
have lacked for assistance along the road to
perdition; but he did not choose to. On the con
trary, he takes himself seriously; and if now
and then he says a foolish thing, he does not
seem to make a habit of doing dirty ones.
It is not surprising that gentlemen informed
of young Mr. Rockefeller's real character some
times lose patience with his too energetic critics.

Graft and Taxes
There is a revelation of urban graft
by Allan Itobin&on, president of the Al
lied Real Kstato Interests, in New York
city. He tolls this story:
"A friend of mine was approached
by a tax inspector.
" 'I understand, Mr. II ,' said the
inspector, that you are trying to have
your real estate assessments reduced.'
" 'Well, not exactly that,' answered
Mr. 11 . 'It seemed to mo that the
property was being assessed for more
than it was worth, and I was consider
ing an application for a lower apprais

is done in the regular way.'
" 'All right. You'll be sorry if you
do,' and the inspector walked away.
"Sure enough, instead of reducing
his assessment, the city added $80,000
to the taxable value of Mr. 11 's
realty, and he is paying taxes on that
every year. There are thousands of

Telephoning in Berlin has peculiar
difficulties. There is an extra charge
for night service, when girl operators
