BRYAN DENOUNCED WAR SCARE, E
SECRETARY BRYAN SPEAKS AT
MEETING OF PEACE SOCIETY.
Castigates "Subsidized Patriotism
Which Seeks to Create Strife for
Profit"-World Peace, Etc.
Washinigeton. V- 'iorous detnuncia- tr
tion of a "subh.idizid patriotism which 1:
seeks to create \. ar bht-cause " the ty
profits in armni, plate and battleships" TI
and of the "sensational and mer- fr
cenary newspapers which prefer big., ti
scare head lines to the truth." mark-' thii
ed an address by Secretary Bryan of
Sunday at a Hague anniversary meet-' b
ing, held under the auspices of the th
Washington Peace Society. It was in at
celebration of the fourteenth anni-' er
versary of the first meeting at The eC
'"War is in the interest of a few
people, not all." Mr. Bryan declared. ;a(
"The profits are garnered by a few, l'
while the masses pay the taxes. A iii
few gain glory while the mothers of fc
the nations furnish the sons who ()
make food for battlefields. War rests di
upon feeling, not upon necessity. b!
Back of much of the furore for war is I)
a selfish interest in the manufacture C
of battleships. And there are men so tl
unpatriotic that they try to stir tip it
trouble in another country against p1
their own, so as to make personal it
profit therefrom. Is there any baser e:
use for money?" 0
The secretary asserted that the it
world was drawing away from the C
time when wars will be made to grat- o
ify selfish interests and ambitions. ti
"Increasing intelligence," he added, o
"is one of the forces working for d
peace, because the people are learn- a
ing to understand the causes that lead n
to war." d
"The people are learning to dis- ii
criminate also," he continued, "be- 0
tween patriotic newspapers and those s
who seek for big headlines." 3
Secretary Bryan expressed the be
lief that in time this country would q
have treaties with all other nations a
providing for efforts to arbitrate all v
questions of dispute, and that other c
nations would follow this country's ex- I
ample. These agreements, he said, I
would make it "almost impossible to t
bring this country into war with any a
other contracting nation." T
Increasing intelligence, the growing f
disposition to bring governments I
nearer the people, and the moral
growth of the world were the three T
great factors, he declared, in making I
for peace. The danger that suddenly I
inflamed public feeling will throw a
nation into war is growing less, he
said, because the people are beginning I
to see that war does not benefit them;
that they pay the taxes and shed the
blood, and that it is usually incited 1
by those who look for personal profit. 1
Preparation for war encourages war,
be added. Those nations that spend
most of their time getting ready for
war stand the best chance of going to
war. He said it was possible to
change the ideal of the world, just as
can be done with an individual, and
that the ideal of peace would prevail
throughout the entire world after a

of this we would not impagtn the sin

we are convinced that many of them
are fatally mistaken. \We have only

1. One man says: "Man is saved
through the inevitable operation of
evolution. Alan has been placed upon
earth for the purpose of devetloepment.
and if lie exists beyond this life that
development will continue until he
re aches perfection." That is a widely
received view, and the recent revival
of thie evolutionary theory as devel.
iped in scientific investigations, has
largely strengthened it. Such writers
as Alfred Tennyson, who speaks of
that period "Far off. at last, to all,"
etc., have largely strengthened the
idea. and it is known that evolution
Sary preachers, if they do not general
ly deny the salvation taught by Paul,
0 as some do, so emphasize evolution
c' that the salvation of man is involved
I in the principle, and consequently
nothing else is needed.
II. Many indulge the conception
that man is saved by right living, but
just at this point of right living there
is difference of opinion as to what
we mean. Many promptly promptly say it
Smeans doing what is right, but do not
Le define the word right. We must have .
p some criterion of judgment, and we
Sinquire for that. Many, it pressed,
i will say, it is acting in accordance
'with the teachings of the Bible, but
, here again there is dilculty, for many
- only consider the teachings of the
t Bible with reference to their relation
- ship to their fellow men, and they
w claim that if they act honestly in their
in dealings with their fellow men, or as
Shas been recently said, give every
t- man a square deal, they are acting in
e accordance with the teachings of the
p Scripture. But, if a man is honest.
t must he not consider more than his
e fellow men? Does he not have God,
who is the author of the Bible, to
o deal with? Is there nothing owing to
e him, aside from honesty in our deal
s- ings with our fellow men? What
- about high morals that are really per
e sonsl, and what about the demands
that are made upon men as o to the
Sworship of God, the dissemination of
e religious truth, the individual religious
g life. involving the study of God'
lo word, prayer, etc.?
Ill. In these days there is a wide'
i- spread conception that a church con
e- nection, or chqh life, is the essence
a of salvation, consequently multitudes
n- are easily persuaded to connect wite
Sthe church, and to adopt a more or
less faithful church life. We have no
time to call attention to the master's

edbut it must have the kernel of reality
