nallfax, N. 8.. |
Sept. 29. — Pastor '
Russell is here to [
address a Conven- I
tlon of Bible Stu- \
dents assembled {
from New Eng j
land and the Prov
inces. We re|iort
one of h!s dis
courses from the
text "By grace
are ye saved'
through faith; and
that not of your-
selves; it Is the gift of Ood" (Kphe I
elans ii. 8). He ssid in port:
' Ths relationship between faith and !
works in the matter of the Church's j
salvation has been a question of con
trovnrsy for centuries. However, this.!
like other snlvjec-ts once mysterioas. |
yields to the clearer light of our day.
Now we perceive the importance of
both fnlth and works and the relation '
ship they bear te each ether. Faith
Is the ail import*ut factor ln God's
night, because in our fallen condition
isr*t cannot do perfect works and lie-cause
God cannot consistently accept and
reward any but perfect works.
God's arrangement for bs, therefore.
In Chr.it. is that He will judge us.
not according to our works, but accord
ing to our faith. Nevertheless, good
■works are recopnlzed as a demonstru
tion of onr fa ith. So surely as we have
the proper faith In God and His prom
tees it will manifest itself in works, i
even though we cannot do perfectly.
i So St. James points out that Abra ;
hum was not .Instilled without works.
bnt was required to demonstrate his
faith by his works, even though they [
•were not perfect works and could not
have Justified him.
Age of Faith—Age of Works.
If we call this Gospel Age the Ape of
faith, none should misunderstand us to
menu that works are now wholly Ig
nored, but rather that works tnke the
secondary place. likewise, when we
scy that the coming Age of the Mes
s.-.-inie Kingdom will be an Age of
wirks, none should nnderstnnd us as
weaning that fuilh will then be ig
nored. Works will then be the basis
of the Lord's judgment in dealing with
the world. Thus we read that they
shall be -judged every man according
to his works." (Revelation xxii. 12.1 I
Jndffmeut according to works, yet not '
•without faith, may perhaps appeal to
aonte of onr minds as being the more
reasonable, the more just form of judg
ment. However, when v.c come to
note the difference bet-ween the eondi
tii irs of the trial of the Church of this
Age snd the fulure trial of the world
during the Messianic reign, we can see
readily the reason for the different ba
sis of judgment
The Present Grace Age.
In the present rime tho I_ord is se- r
lectlnp from the world a speeißl class i
to be the P.ride of Christ, and He prop
erly make« faith the test, il) Because
In the Divine estimation faith in God
Is one of (he grandest elements of
Character, the one most essential to
»)_eb as will bo entrusted with high
positions and authority in the King
dom. (2i Because (lie judgment accord
Ins to fnith meets the various condi
tions of tlm* present time as a judgment
seconding to works would not do.
The Lord .-nils now for such us will
•walk in the "narrow way." demonstrat
ing that if they hail perfect bodies as
Jvsas' body was perfect they would be
perfect in works as well as in faith
In tho next Age. the Divine plan will
1 not be Ihe selection of self-sacrificing
ones for the Kingdom, but the bless
lnjr of humanity with an opportunity to
re-tarn to the full perfection of human
nature. They will be required merely <
to demonstrate their loyalty to God in
tlie use of their lives faithfully in .
Obedience to His Lew. The reward for :
tbe sacrificers of this Age Is to bo
glory, honor and immortality, the Di
vine nature and joint heirship with the
Lord Jesus in His Kingdom. The re-
Ward for obedience to he given in the
next Age will be human |ierfeotk»n In
tbe image and likeness of God. with all
the enrthly Inheritance originally given
to Adam—lost through sin and redeem
ed hy the merit of Christ's siicriflce
And since the objective points of the
two Ages are different, so will be their
methods and conditions
We have already considered the con
ditions of the Church's trial: let in*
next notice how different will he tho
conditions of the world's trial, accord
Ing to works, lv the coming Age. The
reign of Satan and sin now prevalent
Is to give way; Sntan is to be bound
for a thousand years that he may de
■ceive the nations no more for that pc
rioii. The darkDess. Ignorance, super
stitlon uud misunderstanding of God
and His plans, etc.. which have pre
vailed for the last six thousand years
will pass away, instead, "the Sun of
Righteousness shall arts* with healing
i.M.A 1.1. H»I.T Ali__~'__lUl\t_ __J___U_ji_,. llil iiILM -__.!> i_L tXI_.VJLNC_U» J
In His beams. . . ua kneel of Igno
rance, superstition, etc., which at the
piv*ent time covers the earth, and
gross darkness the heathen, makes
faith In the present time a very |>re*
cious thing indeed which only compar
atively few can or will exercise.
But, when the shadows aud dark
ness shall dee away, when the True
Light shall shine, when "the knowl
edge of the glory of the I-ord shall
fill the whole earth as the waters cov
er the great deep"—tbon faith will not
be at its present premium, lieeatise It
will then be very easy to exercise
fnlth. Moreover, while perfect works
are impossible now. liecsuse of our Im
perfections of the flesh, perfect works
will gradually become possible to the
world in the next Ago. because as they
progress tn (ho light, and in oliedienco
to the laws of Unit Kingdom they will
grndunlly be recovering the perfection
of the flesh, mental, moral arid phys
ical. And as they recover th<-se pow
ers correspondingly more and better
works will lie required each year, each
century, of their experience.
Finally, before the glorious Bpocfc
shall conclude- before Messiah shall
turn over the Kingdom to Justice —all
the willing and obedient will have
come to full perfection and hence to
full capacity for perfect works and
God win demand thorn; they will
therefore lie the standard or test in
the world's trial Day—"They shall be
Judged every man. according to his
works." In both these Judgments we
see Jnstice and Mercy harmoniously
working together In the interests of
those ou trial, tho differences between
the two operations being such merely
as adept tliem to the conditions of the
Individuals on trial.
Come Now to Our Text.
A glance at our text shows that it re
lates to tho present Ago and not to the
period of Messiah's Kingdom. Tho
Apostle is addressing thono called to
Joint-hcirshlp ln the Kingdom, of
whom he says in the context that
"God ln mercy hath quickened us with
Christ and raised us up together to a
heavenly station ln Christ Jesus, that
ln the Ages to come we might show
the exceeding riches of His grace in
His kindness toward us through Christ
Jesus." Without question those words
apply to the Elect Church, and with
equal certainty they cannot property
be applied to the non-elect world,
whose opportunity for blessing belongs
to tbe next Age nnd will come to them
from the Father, through tbe Son, by
the Church in glory.
Our text contains another statement
which has been the cause of much dis
pute, namely, the one which declares
that "we nre saved by grace through
faith, nnd thnt not of ourselves, it is
the gift of God." It is easy to under
stnnil the forepart of this statement,
thnt we nre siiTod by grnce. and easy
also to understand the last pari, name
ly, thnt we are not saved by works and
thnt, therefore, none of us has any
ground for boast ins; in our salvation.
"By nature we were children of wrath,
even as others.'' We were under the
sentence of death nnd could not recov
er ourselves from that condition. What
ever, therefore, should be done for ns
to help us out of our condermiulion nnd
fniien condition would necessarily hoof
grace, nnd nlso of God. Now we come
to the more difficult part of our text.
"That Not of Yourselves."
How shall we understand the sug
gestion that the faith is not of our
selves but is the gift of God? Surely
God does not exercise fnith for ns. and
surely also He does not develop the
faith in as by son is miraculous power,
for 1n either of those cases the saints
would be merely machines, reacting as
acted upon. This v.-onld neither de
velop nor prove character, nor in any
wise fit nnd nrepars OS for the glorious
work to which we have been called
How is ir Cod's gift?
There is one view of this statement
wlii h we believe clears It of nil mys
tery end makes it entirely harmonious
With Divine Justice and our responsi
bility, it is this
Faith is possible only where there
is a basis of knowledge: in proportion.
therefore, as Divine providence gran's
ns knowledge of Himself ami of His
great Plnn. in that proportion is it
possible for us to exercise faith in
flint fiau. and by onr endeavors to
demonstrate tho strength and sincerity
of our faith While It Is true that our
knowledge depends In large measure
upon our application in the study of
tho Divine Word—upon our nse of the
mentis and opportunities placed within
our reach by n kind Providence—nev
ertheless there are millions of our race
who have had no opportunity what
ever for knowledge
For Instance, during the more than
four thousand years from Adam lo the
days of Jesus, knowledge and oppor
tunity for faith were very limited
For more than two thousand years
God made no direct revelation what
ever of His good Intentions in respect
(o sending a Savior, and the delivery
of our race from tho bondage of srt.
nnd death. Then the Message so_it
was semi private. To Abraham God
declared His intention of blessing tin
world eventually, and further that this
blessing would come through Abra
ham's posterity. Put what did the
masses of mankind at that time know
of that promise? Fnlth in that prom
l*o was counted to Abraham for
righteousness, nnd the same with
Isaac nnd Jacob. Ultimately tin* prom
ise descended to the nation of Israel.
Finally. Jesus eriiuo. ami thnt which
had boon promised becm to have an
actuality, a fulfilment. Vet even the"
the thing offered was so different from
that which tUo Israelites had for con
turtea expected that the majority ot
tliem wholly failed to exercise the nee
esaary fnlth and to cm or into the prlv
lleires nf the hour -membership in Spit
ittial Israel as sons of Und begotten
» a higher nature. _>■•. suys the Apos
;le. "Ursel hath not untamed that
nrhicb he seeketh for. but the election
ibtalned It and the rest were blinded."
Jnlv the few had a sufficiency of faith
ro make use of their knowledge.
"If Our Gospel Be Hid."
8t Paul declares that the Gospel is
liil'len from some during this Age,
iiiinoly. from the perishing ones whom
Satan hath tilndiil and these surely
ire the vast majority of the race. As
lesus declared to His disciples, "Blees
sd are i/"i"" eyes for they see and your
r-nrs for they hoar." And thus it has
been nil down the Age for more than
?ighteen centuries. Only the few have
kMB so highly favored by birth and
niviroiinionl, etc.. ns to be able to see
md nblo to hear nnd appreciate the
rlorto-as Invitation of this present time.
Furthermore, God's providence tins
jeen exercising apparently a dlsoriml
uitlou in the sending of the Gospel
Message. It went not Mike to all parts
,t the earth. Resinning with Israel
in Palestine It moved northward and
westward to Greece and to Italy, and
thus spread through and nmoriKst the
lavage tribes of Europe, namely, to
such as had "ears to bear" the Divine
call to jolnt-helrsliip with Christ in
the glorious Kingdom soon to be es
tablished. From Europe this Message,
this knowledge, came to America; and
now, within tho Inst century ln par
ticular, it Is reaching some of the
many millions of India. China, Japan,
Africa, etc., but still with the same
limitations. It appeals only to a com
paratively fpw In any nation—"He that
hath an ear to hear, let him hear."
"Not of Yourselves."
Ah, yes. we can see a force in the
Apostle's words, "not of yourselves.''
It Is indeed for ourselves to exercise
fnlth when tho knowledge comes to us.
yet faith being impossible without
knowledge, we were dependent upon
God li>r it. How thankful we should
bo, how appreciative! How sympa
thetic we should be toward those who
have not been so highly favored with
knowledge or whose condition has been
less favorable to the cultivation of the
hearing ear and of the understanding
heart! Truly God is electing and se
lecting, test!..g and proving the mem
bers of the Church of Christ.
Another phase of the subject well
worthy of our notice is that our faith
Is largely a matter of development;
first the seed, then the blade, then the
ear, then tho ripe corn. When Ood
gnve us the first impulse toward a
knowledge of Himself nnd of His pur
poses, that was the seed from which
faith might germinate if It fell into a
heart or mind that was good soil for
It. And even those whose hearts are
good soil for the Message of God's
grace and the Kingdom lnvitntion find
thnt tho.y greatly need a certain Di
vine supervision, watch-care, in order
to bring forth fruitage such as the
Lord will be pleased to accept.
What would any of us be today
•Without the grace of God assisting us
In fnith nud In obedience? Surely the
original faith would long since have
withered and died. We must ntlll say,
By the grace of God we are saved,
through faith, not of ourselves. It is
the result, of the knowledge granted and
the Divine blessing poured upon us.
Growing In Graoe, Etc.
In full line with what we have con
sidered is the Apostolic injunction that
we must continue to grow lv grace
and in knowledge and in faith nnd in
love, and to the extent of our ability
in obedience and good works. And
this growth in grace, this growth in
(Sith, signifies a continued and further
growth in knowledge. For instance,
the promises of the Bible contain the
spiritual food upon which we ns New
Creatures must feed in order to grow
up to the required likeness of Christ—
In order to be fitted aud prepared in
oharaetcr-and faith-development for a
place in the Kingdom.
It should not surprise us, therefore,
to find the Scriptures clearly teaching
that tho Bible contains nourishments
exactly adapted to our requirements.
St. Pnul lllustrntes this matter by say
ing that in the beginning of our ex
periences we. ns new born babes,
should "desire the sincere milk of the
Word that, wo might grow thereby"—
grow ln grace nnd in knowledge and
faith and obedience. But he admon
ishes us also that we should not al
ways continue to be babes, feedlug
upon the milk of the Wo-'d. hut that
by the use of It and the strength that
Is derived we should become strong in
the Lord, become tnnnly. attaining
irnt'i the full Stature of manliness as
members of the Body of Christ. And
for this additional strength the Apos
tle (ells us that we need more than the
milk of the Word—WS need the "strong
moat" of Cod's Word, of God's prom
'ses. that we may grew thereby. And
again, hi all fh;s finding and using of
tire "meat in due season" we are In
•stated to God.
Not only bus ITe provided meat ln
duo season in the Holy Scriptures,
"that the man of God may be (borough
ly furnished" and able to "rightly di
vide the Word of Truth." but addition
al]. He has grained help amongst the
brethren, that wo may build one an
other up tn the faith, until we all come
(o the full stature lv Christ.
How evident then it is that our salva
tloo through fnlth is not a matter of an
Instantaneous Injection of fnlth into
us In some miraculous manner, but a
gradual development, as we have seeDr
nnd bow evident It Is that ln the devel
opment of this faith we are to be co
workers together with God! '
Let us. therefore, be very apprecia
tive of Ihe great privilege* granted to
Us ami use them wisely, leet we should
receive tin-* grace of God in vain and
miss this •--rout Prize which has been
offered to US and which we have sc
i-opted and which God will be faithful
to give to (hose who faithfully use the
blessings of lib nn*>vt»li

SESSION OPENS
ON IRRIGATION
< Continued from first pass)
"This policy does not mean the
abandonment of the levee protection
and channel work heretofore pur
sued In the navigable portions of our
rivers. The policy is supplemental in
its character and Is Intended to make
mora complete the work of flood pro
tection which thus fur has been In
sufficiently developed. The great
Mississippi flood accentuated this
movement and demonstrated the im
portance of diminishing the flood
crest by holding back the flood wa-.
ters above. All the national parties
have joined in this movement. Pub
lic sentiment is far in advance of leg
islation, ln this legislation the sev
enteen arid and semi-arid states will
co-operate with the Mississippi Val
ley and the valleys of the Atlantic
and Pacific coast in urging the high
est co-oparation between the scien
tific services of the government hav
ing any relation to water and the
highest co-operation of the nation
with (he states in the full exercise of
thi.ir power and jurisdiction upon
this subject. Team-work only is re
quired and w»ith an expenditure of
fifty millions of dollars annually ln
supplementing the river work hith
erto pursued we will have accom
plished a system of river regulation
that will be the admiration of the
scientific and commercial world.
Capacity for Constructive Work
"The capacity of democracy for
constructive work is to be tested. Our
ability to maintain a collective effort
embracing both public and private
uses with a fair apportionment of
costs between such uses is to be test
ed. On the one hand we wish to
avoid the weakness of a stern indi
vidualism which daily increases the
strength of the strong and diminishes
the efficiency of the weak, and at the
same time we wish to avoid the dan
gers of socialism which seeks to make
collective society the source of nil
effort and all reward."

Olympic Will Have Battleship
Stern, and Gossips Call It
Significant
NEW YORK, Sept. 30.—The
White Star liner Olympic, which
leaves here today for Southampton,
will not appear in New York harbor
again until 1913 is well under way.
Tho big liner has been ordered to tha
shipyards at Belfast, where she will
be laid up for six months and re
constructed, according to the new
rules of the British Board of Admir
alty.
The battleship stern is to be built
upon the liner and a new inner hull
constructed for her. Militant persons
who heard this news today refused
to accept the explanation offered by
White Star line officials to the effect
that tho battleship stern has been or
dered to protect three 25-ton pro
pellers from the terrific backward
suction produced by their speedy rev
olutions. .
Militant one declared that the re
construction merely is the first step
in a complete . conversion of Eng
land's merchant marine for war pur

Many passengers returning from
abroad recently have declared that
war talk is common in England and
that plans are being matured quiet

of the biggest and fa-stest merchant
vessels for naval auxiliary service.

ABE RUEF GIVES HIS
PLAN FOR ELECTION
Advisee the Abolition of Primaries
and Taking Lists Direct
to the Polls
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 30.—At a
time of the greatest uncertainty ia
to the constitutionality of the state
primary law, Abraham Ruef, writing
from his cell In San Quentin penlten
i tlary for the San Francisco Bulletin,
recommends that primary elections be
(abolished. He continues:
"Instead of certifying listß of can
didates to be voted on at prlmary
electlons, let the lists be certified for
. the general elections. Let an actual
election bo made at the general elec
tion by all the people directly from i
the entire lists so certified.
"I would provide for the filing and'
placing upon the ballot of organiza
tion tickets of party nominations, as
well as of Individual party nomina
tions. I would exact that no such
ticket be placed upon the ballot un
less it be certified to by at least as
many electors as the law re-qulres to
constitute a party, which at present
is three per cent of the total vote at
the last eletelon.
"There should be a provision for
registering the party as at present,
in order that party nomination*
should be certified only by affiliated
party voters. All tickets and Indi
vidual nominations certified by both
parties could be arranged, with the
appropriate designation of party, un
der the separate titles of office to be
filled.
"The personal choice of each vo
ter could be manifested by stamping
a cross, as at present, opposite the
name of the candidate of any party
he preferred for that particular of
fice."
YOUN6 SICKLES SAYS
FATHER M AFFINITY
Publishes Love Letter Written to
Woman Friend, an Affinity
of the General
NEW YORK, Sept. 80.—Stanton
Sickles yesterday made public an
other love letter from his father, Ma
jor-General Daniel E. Sicklee, to the
mysterious "woman prominent ln so
ciety," with whom he Is alleged to
have had an affair 'from 1878 to
1897.
Stanton Sickles declares the wo
man was his father's "affinity" for
many of the 27 years during which
General Sickles and his wife have
been separated.
The letter is alleged by the son to
have been written by his father to
the woman in question while Mrs.
Sickles was In Madrid in 1897. Young
Sickles' reason for making public
these rather Intimate documents of
his father is that the General has
given as his reason for refusing (o
live with Mrs. Sickles the presence of
a son in Spain. Mrs. Sickles and
Stanton declare that the boy, Miguel,
was the posthumous son of a friend,
and they deny the charges of the old
soldier.
Young Sickles declares that the at
tachment between his father and this
woman continued for 18 years and
that It had been broken in 1896. The
letter given out yesterday reads ln
part*
"I love you, as I have always
loved you, and, believe me, you will
find that love such as mine is not to
be thrown aside with disdain or in
difference.
"I am holding off death with one
hand, while I am writing my me
moirs with the other. In tho chap
ter in which I shall describe you I
want you to appear as I have found
you, the one happy vision of my life,
without blemish or fault. If this be
an Illusion, lot me keep It to the end.
Be yourself, dear, as you have al
ways been to me; be my friend; I
ask no more. Fondly, DA. 1.."

LA FOLLETTE WILL
TELL ON ROOSEVELT
Senator Will Show Whether ths
Colonel's Trail Is Crooked
or Straight
MADISON, Wie., Sept. 30. —Senatoi
La Follette, in the leading editorial
of the current issue of La Follette's
Weekly Magazine, has come out flair
footed In support of the Republican
ticket in Wisconsin.
At the same time Senator La Fol
lette makes the announcement that
his publication will begin on October
5 the publication of Theodore Roose
velt's political record in connection
with which Senator La Follette says
he has endeavored to ascertain
whether the ex-preeldent "has left a
straight or a crooked trail."
Senator La Follette'B articles on
tho political history of Colonel Roose
velt are expected to produce a -.e-i
--sation in political circles for the
weath of hitherto untold history they
are said to contain. The magazine
will need to bo enlarged to enable the
publication of the entire record ln
five issues, as is contemplated by the
senator. The pre-convention cam
paign will be reviewed at length, par
ticularly the candidacies of Colonel
Koosevelt and Senator La Follette
and their respective relations to the
"Progressive" cause.
"In weighing the course which It
was my duty to take when Roosevelt
became an open and aggressive can
didate, claiming the leadership of the
Progressive Kepubllean movement, I
reviewed the record of his official
life," declares Senator La Follette In
one of the paragraphs of forthcoming
articles.
"He had given utterance to many
strong Progressive declarations, and
taken by themselves they would per
suade the most ardent Progressive.
At times this side of the man made
me to be hopeful that he might sup
port our movement, and, with his
prestige as former president. If he
would hold fast, give us greatly add
ed strtngth. But to commit the Pro
gressive cause to his control, to stake
all on his remaining steadfast al
ways, compelled me before taking the
final step to go back a long course
oyer which this man had come snd
see whether he had left a straight or
crooked trail."
