I THE CO-OrEHATORS' DEPARTMENT. j
jA By ths Christian Corporation- Mj A Talk With Christiana The writer baa been from the age of six teen a member of the Congregational church, and all his life a constant church attendant, associating with church peo ple. I know that in the churches I have been A member of there haa been on the part of thH great majority of the mem bers a sincere desire to do, an well as pro fess to do, the will of God. It is this class of honest believers that we wish to reach and reason with, . What in the will, the law of God? "For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: 'Thou shalt love thy neigh bor as thyself.'" When? on Sunday, and with words only? No; on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday aud Saturday also. Words of love are not to be despised, but daily deeds must correspond. Daily deeds? How? There ia no love in business, no time or place for it. In buying and selling and working it ia each for himself. We buy and Bell, we hire and work on the best (most selfishly advantageous) terms we can command from one another; and we have supposed this was just. Political economists have so theorized, churches have not con. demned the competitive, selfish business struggle They have even gladly and gratefully accepted, the gifts of wealthy monopolists. Love in biiBinesM Why, it wouldn't fit, would it? It would be folly to sell for less or pay more than the market price tor anything, labor included. Howconld a man do business with selfish men und not be selfish, 1. e., net selfishly, himself? Well, then, do you say that the law of love was not made to be obeyed week days, and that we can continue in sin and be saved by faith? "Faith without works is dead, being alone," But if we are respectably selfish when dealing with one another, can we not by paying for prenohing and lining charit able more or less on Sunday discharge all our obligations to ourfellowmen? What good does preaching do if no one is going to practice love? What good does it do to profess unselfishness Sun day, if everybody is expected to or must look out for "number one" only on Mon day? If the present method of employ ing, buying and selling, and taking from others labor pro fits, interest and rent, is justifiable, then charity is a work of supererogation. To be charitable is to be more than just, is that the idia? I'eople certainly have not considered I lint the poor have a right to demand charity, or work, even. Professions of love, of Christianity mid, a little contribution from our hoiirdwl surplus cannot take the place of actual love. If love is not an everyday business matter it is a mere profession, aud not a possession, a sentiment and not action. Nobody, except the degraded, wants charity. Nobody nmJs charity except the undeserving penitent. Everybody wants love. The difference between love aud charity Ib this: charity is bestowed out of ones surplus, love gives all. It gives all pos sible service and divides equally. Charity religion is a dead failure. The religion of love is the hope of the world. The religion of love is uot uow preached so as to be understood in the churches. There is a half understood voice, but no social embodiment. Christianity as now named is form without life, words with out deeds, a six-days wolf in a seventh day sheepskin, a creed that permits mammon worship weekdays and mam mon gifts on Sunday. It has lost the spirit of Christ. Instead of the cross for its emblem, it should now adopt the dol lar, with this legend stamped on one bide, " We want the earth;" and on the other, "In God we trust" for heaven. The Btate is theoretically unselfish, caring equally for all. liut the self-seek-iug have secured possession of it and made it the mightiest agent of greed. The church was given "good news to the poor," and a law that should right all wrongs. Iiut its good news of present embodied love was ages ago driven out of the business world, and its law at the same time was covered with accumulat ing temple rubbish. The church is divided into selfish sects, and those selfish sects and individual churches are sub-dividided into commer i cially selfish, everyday self-centered indi viduals. It therefore is not the body of Christ, for his body cannot be divided. 'Divide the human body and the spirit, the life, the power, leaves it. Divide the body of Christ and it also dies. Salvation is simply union in will and purpose with God, through obedience to Lis laws, which obedience unites us to one another. "That they may be one" was Christ's prayer. Oneness is pence, blessedness, prosperity, infinite forces all working together for our good. Let us be one. "And all that believed were together, and had all things common; and sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all, as every man had need. "And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gludness and singleness of heart, praising God, and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added together daily such as should be saved." Suppose one has wealth, and, after using no more than he really needs, puts his entire surplus into the charity fund. Is that not doing all he can do? No. If one really wants to do all the good he can he must provide land and capital to keep people at work, so that they can supply their own needs aud at the same time create surplus capital to set others at work. Charity supporting people out of work, is sinful w hen such need can be prevented. And the need of charity can be prevented by furnishing free capital and so helping to establish proilwUfiharmg communities, like the one we are starting. I'rofit-seeking capi tal throws men out of work, and keeps them poor when at work. Free capital they can perpetually use and by perma nent employment provide for all their needs. The fellowship meeting of the C. Cs. Monday evening a week ago was well at tended and was very enjoyable, lwo families from Cerescoand one from Wood lawn were represented. A brother from Nebraska City whose name we failed to learn also attended, besides the brethren in town. The Co-operators will have a meeting next Monday evening at the Lniversalist church, corner 12th and H streets. All are welcome. The co-operative store and other questions will be discussed.

The Baltimore Plan, now practically endorsed by President Cleveland, is attracting universal attention because it is based on the evident fact that the currency and banking systems of the country must be re formed. But is the Baltimore plan a reform? It gives the associated banks the power to expand the currency and relieve the country. It also gives them the power to contract it at will and create universal distress for their own private gain. It puts the credit of the government behind every bank note. It donates all but half of one per cent of the profit on the note issue to the banks, and it leaves plenty of opportunities for a Napoleon of Finance to wreck a bank and leave the government to pay the notes. It leaves the banks free to demand the highest interest that the several states will allow, and affords no relief to farmers and business men of moderate capital. Contrast with this The Hill Banking System. In "Money Found," an exceedingly valuable and instructive book published by Charles H. Kerr & Company of Chicago, and for sale at the office of this paper at 25 cents, Hon. Thos. E. Hill proposes that the government open its own bank in every large town or county seat in the United States, pay 3 per cent on long time deposits, receive deposits subject to check without interest, and loan money at the uniform rate of 4 per cent to every one offering security worth double the amount of the loan. This plan is not an expense to the government, but a source of large revenue. It secures the government amply, which the Baltimore plan does not. . It relieves the distress of the common people, which the Bal timore plan does not. It protects not only note-holders but depositors, who are un secured now and under the Baltimore plan would be still worse off. s In a word, the Baltimore plan is in the interest of the bankers, the Hill Banking System is in the interest of the people. Consider them both, and ask your congressman to vote for the teie you believe in. And send us 25c. immediately for the book, "Money Found" has no equal in its line. Address, Wealth Makers Pub.

One of the house bills that would repeal the "value in policy" law, has been in" definitely postponed. So far so good; but there are some other bills in the hands of the committee that, if reported favorably, wo in Id stand a chance of going through the house. Some petitions against the passage of the "value in policy" are coming in and I will present them to the members when it will do the most good, when the proper time comes. Please put the name of pont office opposite each signature. 11. R. 746, the bill allowing town peo ple to organize a mutual company to insure their property, has been on gene ral file about two weeks, but there are many bills ahead of it. There will be an attempt soon to ad vance it to third reading and secure its passage. The State Auditor has started a man named Dorsey, out to examiue our books to which I presume none of you will ob ject. In fact you shoulu all be willing. But this man will charge f 10.00 ier day and expenses for all time, from time he leaves Lincoln until he gets back. This, I claim, is not in accordance with law, justice, or the principle upon which our company was organized. Therefore, whem he called on me I in formed him that he could make the examination if he would agree not to hold the companies (lam secretary of two companies) liable for any pay. To which he replied that he was not out for his health. 1 told hyn that r would not pay until I han to, aud asked the 'Auditor for time to take council, which he granted. It will not cost any company anymore to stand a lawsuit than this man will wrongfully usk of you, but if all will join and make a test case we could make it interesting for him. In the first place I do not think that I have objected to a reasonable fee, but when such an unreasonable demand was made I concluded to pay nothing unless I had to, as that would establish a prece dent that he could use to bleed all the companies in the state. There are forty three of them, and if he took $40.00 from each one, and that would be about the average expenses, which would in clude, railroad fare, livery, hotel bills and one day on the road each way. Now I hope to hear from each secretary and president within four days as to whether you would join, in this light if ib comes to a tight. 1 think that if all would join a couple of dollars from each would employ the best legal talent in the state to thoroughly investigate the matter. I am in the same building with ex-Attorney-General Leese, and ex-Supreme Judge Reese, both of whom can be em ployed in the case if needed. INCORPORATED. Latest Market Prices.
