Christian church ran offv

I io.'-i-Hor (',. J. Sodergren of Augus
ta iiu .-"luiriary In a lecture yesterday
i-Mernorn before the Concordia soci
'y in Iifnkmann Memorial library,
i'n.i'-ssor Sodergren pointed out many
( '. the rauses that are producing nocial soda! unres
ui.r's and dissatisfaction among la
!nt.g classes and declared that the
c j:ch cannot afford to clo'se its ejen
t.i ( oiifliMonK as they exist.
Tli" church, he said, has lost the con
l '. i.i e of the laboring classes to a
! .r,. ,xerit because of its failure to
( n;i nitilon its cause. Yet the problem
its responsibility and duty. To some
rx'er.t It has opposed the movement to
ameliorate conditions and establish
justice. This is due to a large extent:
because of the fat that the church
'.as always ben on the side of peace
and peace too often means the con
tinuance of things just as they are,
whether right or wrong. Again, the
church has always been on the side
of law. uhe-b'-r those laws have been
enacted for the many or the few. The
church has l.een o n-!;- fa de of govern
ment, whether that government rep
resents the people a? a whole or not
Tn pointing out the causes for the
in this country. Professor
Sod'-rgren declared that the primary
cause is du to the unequal distribu
tion of wealth. While one per cent of
the people own mi per cent of the
wealth of the nation, he said, there
sre at least in.niift.nnft who are in ac
tual poverty. He vigorously condemn
ed the recent action of the clerical
party in Belgium in defeating equal
essentially one of a religio-social suffrage, but held that the state church
ure and cwnnot bo effectually solv- in Germany is acting in sympathy with
. hi contended, except by the coop- the working class.

largest amount in its mi'e box, the

J15. The flag is kept for one year by
the society making the largest collec

the ladies are consequently much
